Iron Horse
All is quiet in the early morning; birds fly high above in the dimly lit sky, overlooking the slate of land full of wood and metal. But this is no jumbled mess; these materials have a pattern, resembling a series of ladders pieced together into multiple long lines. Farther down, a house with large doors sits ajar, connecting to these tracks. What kind of creature could use such a rickety path? Perhaps this chamber could provide the answer...

The Story of Spore(my take)
This is my view on the lore behind one of my favorite games of all time, Spore. Keep in mind, I'm mixing elements from Spore and Spore Hero, and I'm even nodding toward a certain now-deceased game.
Long ago, in the galaxy's earliest years, two powerful beings fought for dominance. One is the being we know as Spode, and the other, the God That Will Come. As they clashed, various mixes of energy spread across the cosmos, conjuring the stepping stones of life. When the God That Will Come was driven off at last, Spode took notice of the effects of the millenia-long battle, seeing several races rising up throughout the galaxy. His inquisitive and creative mind went to work with the trail mix of energies to create life with his Rod of Ayla, and his first creations... fell short. They were a machine race, created with a silicon and titanium base that was made to, and I quote, "Explore the Galaxy". But the Grox were emotionally lifeless, and they had little drive to expand and evolve. So Spode

The World of Astiria: Magic System: Base
Overview: Almost two millennia ago, a powerful and ancient Dragon named Yharon passed from the world after being punished by the gods for attempting rebellion. The beast's demise eventually brought Algo's magic into fruition through his spilled blood, which seeped into the ground and began spreading various forms of magic all around the world. Over the millennia, life in Algo began to adapt to the new power, and most beings developed an organ known as the Index Arcanum, a small organ next to the heart that stores a liquid form of Spirit Energy. Through this organ and its many adaptations through the species, the races of Astiria and beyond are capable of harnessing magic in various spells or incantations.
MAGIC’S STATES OF MATTER
Spirit Energy (Gas): the purest form of spirit energy, a colorless, highly energized gas-like substance. It can’t be seen, smelled or tasted, but it can be felt with a bit of focus. This is the least powerful form via being the least compresse

Prospects of a race
Prospects of a race

Presenting a bit of filler while I work on the two projects at hand. See if you can tell where this is from in a paragraph or two!
That day was a day full of wonders. As in, a young boy meeting a space wizard that was leaking fuel in his ship and had to stop and get a new engine, only to later discover that this little boy was the 'chosen one'. Of course, my boss and him eventually struck a deal about both the engine and me; I would race in the most dangerous sport in my sector, both to earn my freedom and some extra funds for the wizard. Not a problem at all, really. After all, it wasn't my first rodeo; the only reason I lost my last race was because of a sabotage by everyone's favorite big bully of the track. I fixed the old girl up the other day, before the wizard found out about me, and her huge engines now roar just like in her glory days. And with that, I was ready.
The roar of the audience was deafening, so

Chapter 5:

Umarak hurtled through the jungle, jumping from tree to tree, and the whole time he was contemplating Fire Lord's request. He seemed no different form the Protector of Fire. thought Umarak, Up until he mentioned taking over the Island, at least. To be honest, he certainly seemed all the more ambitious, and he swore to bring at least one of the two most sacred and well-hidden treasures in the world. I just don't see how he could do it, but I'm willing to give him at least some shot at it. As he approached an altar far below him, he spotted a figure sitting criss-cross in front of the step up to it. He was wearing armor that showed several snake designs, and the majority of it was a very dark shade of green. His staff, too, also caught his eye; it was a bo staff like a gladiator would use, but one end had a glowing orange crystal blade that radiate

Ecosystem.42 Statistics Part 2
In the previous part, we went over damage types and two of the three active factions on E.42. Now, we get to take a look at the third and final faction as well as a peek into a mysterious fourth faction, one that had seemingly vanished from the planet, leaving behind relics and structures in varying locations.
But we'll get to them later. Right now, let's review the Grey Goo faction!

Factoid: The goo descends from a man-made probe designed to discover and map inhabitable worlds, including E.42.

A surprise post
Well, I've started watching Transformers Prime recently, and it's quickly become a favorite.
It's even become an inspiration for a select number of characters in Ecosystem.42, such as Jeddix.
But that's not really what I'm posting this for; the other day, I was browsing through Starscream artwork on DA just because I can, and something caught my eye. It was Starscream's rendition of the last few verses of "Be Prepared" from The Lion King, and I was immediately inspired to complete the whole thing. But of course, for the scene to be complete, I had to include some dialogue for Knockout and Breakdown in place of Shenzi, Banzai and Ed. So, here's a rough rendition of it;
This scene supposedly takes place shortly after "Operation: Breakdown". And of course, this isn't canon.
Breakdown: Man, I hate humans. I'm not gonna be able to see right for a week!
Knockout: Well, a lack of depth perception shouldn't hinder you too much. Just hold still for a minute longer, and I'll have your eyepatch f

Ecosystem.42 Premise
This is the premise to an upcoming RP that I'm thinking of starting up.
End of Earth: 2193
Current year: 2543
It's been centuries since the destruction of Earth; nuclear war has rendered the cradle of humanity uninhabitable. But who was to think we weren't ready for the inevitable? Colony ships were dispatched the day the fifth bomb exploded, their inhabitants in cryosleep and headed for the unknown. Every one of them traveled for nearly two centuries before each found a new planet to start anew, 100 in total; one in particular is Cunabula Vitae, or as we know it, Ecosystem.42.
E.42 happens to be one of few E.Planets that not only has life, but also has a well-balanced ecosystem. The big issue? Only the upper half of the planet was inhabitable; the lower half was a desolate, rocky lava prairie. But that area also happens to hold vast amounts of minerals and other precious resources, so that drew in mining operations to the area. The resources gathered went almost directly to constructi

Tales From Okoto: The Tale of Avohkii
Tales From Okoto
The Tale of Avohkii
Adapted from: "Moon Man", an Aboriginal tale
Come now, weary travellers; I have a tale to tell.
A creation story from long ago, so please listen well!
For the things you hear are how our lives today are influenced.
Come in close, and soon it all will start to make sense...
Before the sun was as it is today; a very bright, very brilliant orb of pure light that all beings of shadow abhor, it was nothing more than a sphere of light cast up by the demigod Avohkii every day to light up the Island of Okoto just so life can live as it should. It was a very timid light, not too bright, not too dim. And that's exactly the way Avohkii and his two wives, both born of shadow, liked it. The three had led their two sons through their childhood, and when they came of age, it was time for them to hunt in their parents' places.
"The fish just downstream are your best chance at catching them." said Avohkii to them on their fir

Tales From Okoto
The Beast of KauKau's Bay
Sung to: "The Beast of Pirate's Bay" by Voltaire
Come now, weary travellers, I have a tale to tell.
It might just save your lives but only if you listen well.
'Cause there before the breakers and just around the way,
There's a sign that says, "Beware the Beast of KauKau's Bay!"
Some say he's a guppy a youth threw in the sea.
He ate so many creatures, now he's bigger than a tree!
His teeth are sharp as scissors, his claws they are like knives...
And if you think he's ugly, wait 'til you see his insides!
Oh, don't you sail and don't you row and certainly don't you swim!
'Cause if you aren't careful, you'll end up inside of him!
He'll eat you up and spit you out, you'd better stay away...
Heed the sign that says "Beware the Beast of KauKau's Bay!"
Some say he's a serpent that came straight from hell,
to eat the souls of heathens and other ne'er-do-wells.
Some they don't believe it, as for me I've got a hun

NOT a word Fire Lord liked to think of. The addition of Antidermis should be a permanent solution. he continued in his head, but bending the essence of Makuta Teridax to be MY essence will take time, and I need all of it that I can get.

Matoro awoke to the sound of alarm klaxons beeping in his ear. The bobbing of the canister indicated that he was back on water, wherever he was. His body ached all over, even in places where it shouldn't. How long was I out?... thought Matoro as he tried to stretch out in the small space, turning off the klaxons. It was then that he noticed that his armor had changed; his sword had melded into the shield nicely, even having a second blade alongside what was his Energized Ice Sword. His bow had changed drastically; the Cordak Blaster had shrunk explosively. It was almost just a plain Ice Bow, but...how to say it...'cooler'?
Matoro pulled up a mirror on the dashboard. Out of all his armor pieces, his Kanohi Iden had remained untouched. Then it hit him;
"Where am I?"
Activating his mask, he floated out of the canister and surveyed the Island ahead. Hang on,

Anthodar leaned on the side of the entrance to the Storyteller's hut, waiting on his old friend.

But no Toa could ever come from them; they were supposed to have fallen at the SAME TIME! Why drag it out over two months? Perhaps the stars had given up on sending Toa...

Tales of the Red Wings: Prologue
Long ago, when early man still walked the earth, the gods granted them the gift of magic.
Water became the current from which knowledge was gained...
Earth became the materials to form great cities...
Fire became a tool to give and take away life...
And air granted the freedom to take to the skies.
As time passed, more elements were created by mankind, and more races were born. It was a time of peace...
...But all peace must come to an end.
3000 years ago, the elements of light and shadow were discovered, when Demons and Angels arrived on the world's soil.
Both sought to take the land for themselves, and the species of the planet were forced into centuries of conflict.
At the height of the Great War, a place of exodus was created.
A set of large islands, hidden away from the rest of the world, formed and protected by magic. 
And those who wished not to die for their world fled.
1800 years later, war is but a shadow in the mind of the people... As is the old world.

Astiria: Introduction
287 years ago, the world was at war. The angelic forces of the astral plane collided with the daemons of the Abyss, both vying for supremacy over the other. Their battleground? A broken world. The races inhabiting this world struggled to survive against mysterious powers beyond their comprehension. The conflict ended at its peak, when the forces of light and darkness deployed their ultimate weapons. In a desperate bid to survive, the races of the world planned a mass exodus, to a remote series of islands hidden far away from the rest of the world.
No one alive still remembers the events that split the world apart. All that is known is after that day, the world changed forever.
Almost three centuries have passed. The remnants of the great war have infused the world with spirit energy, the remnants of Angels and Daemons, and by its guiding light, civilization has regrown. Now, different species mingle and trade in bustling cities while ornate ships pass the harbors and sail into the grea

Short, out-of-nowhere PSA: The only people who deserve a second chance are the ones willing to give them.
All is quiet in the early morning; birds fly high above in the dimly lit sky, overlooking the slate of land full of wood and metal. But this is no jumbled mess; these materials have a pattern, resembling a series of ladders pieced together into multiple long lines. Farther down, a house with large doors sits ajar, connecting to these tracks. What kind of creature could use such a rickety path? Perhaps this chamber could provide the answer...

Suddenly, a sun-like eye opens! A deep huff rumbles from within, and a waft of billowing smoke surges from the entrance. Now we can see the beast more clearly; a shining hide of steel and brass, boasting scars of long years out on the same paths. Its limbs are stretched out, lining up with a series of circular hoofs on either side. The Iron Horse is surely an imposing sight to behold as it slowly clops out of its stable, following the same old path out to a merging point...

The ancient steel stallion then backs into a series of carriages, all unlike any a typical horse would haul, and far more that one could. But the Iron Horse is special; it bears the unbelievable strength of many dozens of horses, and maintains the grace of those many as it goes. The carriages' destination? Far away. Farther than any horse could trek. But, with a whinny that echoes off the mountains and a subsequent huff and chuff, the Iron Horse starts its gallop across its range, the land it has dominated for decades.
Have you ever known of a despairing friend that you know needs help, but there's this churning feeling in your gut that whatever you say is only going to make them feel worse?

"Do you know of Mario? Good man, hard working, especially with the Princess. May 28th of '93! Unique idea of a film, but absolutely flopped on release."

"The guys behind that film were NOT the brightest bulbs in the-"

"Mortal Kombat! November 21st of '97! All was well and good, another installment of the film series, was sucked into the one's place on RT."

"Look, you can't generalize-"

"Doom: Bland and tasteless! Warcraft: Not even fans liked it! Legend of Zelda: Cancelled in Preproduction! Postal: Gained little more than $3,800 in opening, sequel cancelled!

Thought I'd make this since I heard about both a Mario and a Sonic movie being made, and my predictions are already in.
