Large population, Elves. Built in a thick forest. There are homes and shops built out of dead trees, in the trees, etc.

No real guard presence, however the people are very skilled and martial law exists. There is a certain code they follow. E.g. don’t kill, steal, or hurt.

Cursed town. These Elves aren’t capable of entering their trance state, and instead must sleep. Instead of a normal sleep schedule, they’re cursed to fall asleep all at once at a random time. They can go days without sleep, or hours. Their sleeping spells cause accidents and tragedies.

Sit n Stay: Run by Narbeth Farris. Meant to be a quiet places for elves to be in a trace. Business has stopped. He’s decided to start enforcing the “law”, a code that the elves typically follow. If he feels anyone is breaking it, he drags them back to his Inn and holds them there until a fee is paid either in gold or items. The rooms are small, tall, and meant to be sat in. Nothing else.

Thick Skin: Run by Alwin Bruthe. Leather working shop. Loves making shoulder pads, absolutely adores wide shouldered men. His fellow elves are too narrow, and he will beg to make you a pair if your shoulders are wide enough.

Benevolent Spirits: Run by Ayda Oloren. She brews her own, and she brews it strong. Much too strong for a typical human. You’ll wake up with awful aches and pains, but also see bits of the future when you puke. You can find a distressed elf named Solana getting absolutely wasted at the end of the bar. Ayda tells you she’s been like that for a straight week now since her 121st birthday.  

Solana: 121. Female Elf. A drunken wreck. She’s crying, drinking between hiccups, and seems inconsolable. She manages to slur out that she’s trying to see more of the future to save her town. Elves typically don’t drink enough to get a hangover, so she’s the only one who knows. Everyone else dismisses her as a drunk. She’s terrified of….

I always thought the planet of awesome size was a neat visual. Just this big black ball in the sky. Plus, I really enjoyed both “A Story About You” and “A Story About Them”, so I wanted to do something with that.
Oh, fun fact: “A Story About You” was supposed to be about Larry Leroy (out on the edge of town), but future things done with him scrapped that.
Anyway, back to the picture. I really like how the planet and stars around it came out. The hand and text on it, along with the bottom text, are decent. Something about it feels off, and parts of the image feel a bit sparse, but on the whole I think the picture works.

yumi-chanwriter  asked:

I'm not quite sure if you can help me because my question is not about hand-to-hand-combat but warfare. Do you know how a medieval-like army would act if their enemies are hiding in the mountains? They Do not have to win immeadiately but they should be able to fight them.

In very basic terms, your characters have two choices: Wait them out, or go in and try to hunt them down. Which option is better will depend on a lot of factors.

Moving military forces into mountains is rarely an ideal option. Even under the best of circumstances, you’re looking at difficult to navigate environment that can turn lethal with little to no warning. In some cases, it can actually prove impossible to move forces through because the geography doesn’t allow passage. This also means sending out scouts and trying to find navigable paths, which slows progress.

Getting above the snow line means dealing with harsh conditions that your forces may not be prepared to deal with, and depending on the mountains in question, that may be necessary for traversal.

If you’re dealing with forces native to the mountains, then sending forces in will be very costly. They’ll be in familiar terrain, have a better grasp of where the natural chokepoints are, have a mobility advantage (because they’ll actually know where the possible paths and trails are), and have time to cover their retreat with traps.

If your forces are familiar with the mountains, and the opposing forces aren’t, then you can herd them into dead ends, and move through the territory far faster. If there are friendly mountain settlements, they may help your forces know where their foes have gone.

Of course, the inverse makes this harder. If there are mountain settlements who are hostile (openly or otherwise) to your forces, that will (usually) make life easier for the foes they’re pursuing. This settlements could function as an ad hoc picket, or they could actively support the attackers, while harassing or attacking your forces.

Combat in mountainous terrain is a mess, and heavily favors the side that can best exploit the terrain. In a situation where one side knows the environment better, they’ll be in a far better position to operationalize that. If they’re being pursued, they will know when, and were, to stop and fight, for maximum effect. Let’s take this out of abstraction, for a moment, and talk about exactly how this works.

If you have a sheer cliff face, and the only way up are via goat trails or some canyons that cut into the side. This will create a natural choke point. You can position a (comparatively) small contingent of melee forces to block the path, and then let your archers open up on the assaulting force.

If you have uneven terrain, you may be able to post archers overlooking any other potential combat site, while the enemy cannot get to them without trekking out of their way for miles.

Narrow mountain passes allow you to (nearly) negate the difference in force size. Mass melee combat is not decided by the side who brings more forces to the battle, it’s decided by the side who can put more soldiers directly into combat. In narrow spaces, where only three or four soldiers can stand abreast, the rest of their forces are basically irrelevant. Put another way, you can’t overwhelm your foes with sheer numbers, if those numbers are restricted to picking their nose, and waiting in line for their turn to fight.

The other option is to wait them out. Stay in the lowlands, where your forces can operate effectively. Fortify potential targets for their future raids (such as towns and villages). You will probably, also, want to send scouts into the mountains to track their movement, and gather information about the size and location of their forces. As they become more familiar with the terrain, it’s also possible they could engage in some limited sabotage and harassment.

Depending on how serious the threat is, and the available resources, it may also be time to fortify the region. In the lowlands, that means constructing watchtowers. In the mountains that may mean constructing fortifications along paths that your scouts identify, to protect your forces from potential choke points (like the ones I mentioned above).

At this point, you have two approaches. First is to simply maintain the early warning network, gradually reinforce the defenses, and wipe them out when (or if) they come. The second is to carefully map out the region, identify their means of getting around, and gradually boxing them in, either with standing forces, with fortifications, or with some combination of both.

I suppose another option would be to charge in and get wiped out. That’s, probably, not quite the kind of story you were going for, but it is an entirely plausible outcome, particularly if the lowland forces commander is overconfident or too aggressive. So, that option is on the table. If the fighting has to happen immediately, then that is the most likely outcome.

Maiden’s Unfair Heart

Warning: THIS IS EXTREMELY LONG. Also, this fic takes place in the Middle Ages so sexism is an obvious. Of course 21st century Harry wouldn’t dare say these things, however please keep the time era in mind. The girl’s name is Jo only because this story is an original story with Harry’s name instead of the original: Michael H. Fitz. This one shot is inspired by the novel “Ransom My Heart”. If you love History and Romance together, this is the right book for you :)

Happy reading and please give me some feedback, I beg you!

Tonight, Castiel is back

Yes, tonight we will see Castiel again.
For those who love the angel, it will be a great moment to see him again, to hear his husky voice, to watch his perfect face and be lost when the takes allowed into those deep blue eyes.

But Cas is more that his looks, more than the perfection that is Misha Collins.
Personally, I will be happy to see him thrive, survive give the fight and bleed if he has to, but later stand up and pull through as he always does. Even if my crazy predictions do not happen. But you have to admit, right now angel Castiel hot, Archangel Castiel… ufff … pass the holy water please.

So, this is for those who love the angel, no matter if we suffer, wait together for him to return, and sometimes we hate the writers when they do “things” to our precious Cas. I love him because as the awkward celestial being powerful enough to crush any creature in this planet, he choose to protect us, and I mean humanity, this time not as a figurative speech for us the shipers.

He also choose to love Dean Winchester despite his many imperfections as a representative of our kind. And obviously because he is such a fine piece of ass, and Cas knows perfectly well since he gripped tight that ass and saved him from perdition 8 years ago.

At the end, they all are our heroes, as much as I love Castiel I´m also wishing the best for Sam, Dean and even mother Mary. And for the follow episodes to bring us together in the crying, laughter or despair for the reasons we are about to discover.

I’m writing this for my mutuals, my casual fellow fans who happen to be around here from time to time. Thank you all for your visits, and I hope your friendship, as you have mine.

For all of you I will be here tonight and later till the next day, if you wish to cry, talk or rant about whatever happens. Or if you missed the episode, I can give you the heads up gentle while I hold your hand, or just shout it out in your face hysterically if something marvelous happens to our heroes.

Thank you, and good riddance my fellow Supernatural fans, shippers and casual voyeurs of our suffering.
Let’s hold our hands virtually as we wait for the best, are prepared for the worst as true fans of Supernatural, and wish for our favorite show to marvel us again with all that has to offer.

Ta ta.  

Raven

Okay so as basically every other person out there I am blown away by the latest Yuri on Ice episode and in a state where I just have to rant about it to even think about calming down. Prepare for lots of Viktor, and also both our precious Yuri’s.


 With just one look and one line of dialogue, the whole show turned on its head and we can now watch it from a completely different perspective, more correctly, Viktor’s.

calm before the storm

I’ve never posted fanfiction before, but I was so inspired by the amazing finale that I wanted to share this short fic!

This takes place after 1x13, so there are spoilers! Let me know what you think!




The first thing Betty noticed when she woke up was the smell of coffee drifting into the bedroom as the sun began to pierce through the window. Her next realization was that she was not in her own room.

Startled, Betty sat up, pushing the sheets off of her. As she took in her surroundings, she recognized the trailer bedroom. The memories hit her in a rush, as she remembered the events of last night.

“Juggie?”

Betty’s question sounded more like an accusation, causing Jughead to feel a wave of guilt.

“Thanks for the jacket, but I have company now. I’ll catch up with you guys later.” Jughead closed the door while the serpents mumbled their goodbyes and left.

“Betty…I know they’re not the safest people…”

“Really, Jughead? The serpents are dangerous!” Betty said in anger while she stared at the beaniless boy in front of her.

“Don’t you get it, Betty? Didn’t you hear what they said? I’m family.”

Jughead collapsed on the sofa with his face buried in his hands.

“Even my goddamn mother didn’t want to see me. I have no one. At least they care.”

Betty rushed over to the couch and kneeled in front of him, taking his hands in hers.

“Juggie, I’m your family. Archie, he’s your family. Veronica, Kevin, heck even Pop…they’re all your family.”

Jughead raised his head and looked the blonde in the eyes. He wasn’ t sure if he believed her, but her look of determination made it clear that she believed in him, in them.

He leaned forward, placing his forward against hers, and mummered his love for her. She placed her hands on his tearstained face and kissed him softly.

“I love you, Jughead Jones.”

They had spent the rest of the night together in bed. Betty had texted her mom to say she was spending the night at Veronica’s, then she had put away her phone, blocking out all distractions, so it was just her and Jughead. They laid together all night, whispering secrets to each other in the dark as they soaked up the pleasure of just being together.

Betty sighed contently. She reached over the bed to grab the gray pullover her boyfriend wore yesterday. Betty pulled the large sweater over her bare body, running her hands over the soft material. She smiled, as she acted out the typical cliche of stealing a boy’s clothes because they smelled like him.

Just as she was getting out of bed, the door to the bedroom opened.

“Good morning, Juliet,” Jughead said with his usual smirk she loved so much.

He was shirtless, wearing only his sweatpants and trusty beanie above his head. In his arms, he held two random mugs filled with coffee and a plate of pop tarts.

“There wasn’t any real food in the kitchen, but this is what we have,” he said sheepishly.

Betty smiled at the small gesture, scooting over on the bed to give him space. As he handed her a cup of coffee, she couldn’t help but grin when she took a sip and noticed that he had put in a bit of cream and one sugar, just the way she liked it.

“I wish we could stay like this forever,” she said as Jughead put his arm around her while they leaned against the headboard.

“Me too, Betts. Me too.”

When Betty heard the sound of her phone ringing, she told Jughead to ignore it, not wanting their time together to end. But when Jughead’s phone began to ring right after Betty’s stopped, Jughead glacned at Betty with concern. He sat his coffee down on the side table and walked into the kitchen to answer the incessant ringing.

“Hello?” Betty heard from the other room. “Is he okay? Yeah of course, we’ll be right there.”

Betty looked at Jughead with fear when he rushed back into the bedroom.

“Jug, what’s wrong?”

“That was Archie. His dad…Betts, his dad was shot.”

That event changed the future of Riverdale, a town once so pure was now full of such evil. As the weeks of despair were ahead, Betty would cling to the memory of her night with Jughead for hope; hope that one day, no matter how evil Riverdale would become, everything would be right with her Romeo once again.




Okay, I know the ending was cheesy! But let me know what you thought! Thanks for reading :) Please send any requests for future fics!!!
