30 Chinese Archaic Names    Articles  (Resource)   (Gaming - In General)

An companion to my 101 Chinese Modern Names sub, but for an ancient setting. This is an etymology centred piece with more extended entries compared to the earlier one which is in list form. Spelling is based on Mandarin unless otherwise indicated (the other variation offered is Cantonese which is easier to pronounce given that it is spelt from the English alphabet, at least the HK version that I’m using, rather than the Chinese pinyin)

Trash and Treasure of Ideas    Articles  (Resource)   (Gaming - In General)

Random passages coming from my less than daily attempts at writing exercises. In particular, some of them came about since I had come across what is known as the S+7 game where you replace all the nouns/adjectives/verbs with another word of the corresponding class that is the first one encountered counting 7 or more spaces in a dictionary. Mine this trove of trash or treasure of ideas at your pleasure.
