Tumenbayar, Blade-Princess of the Arighan

The Arighan are a clan of the Veithar, nomadic elves of the Great Steppes known for their horsemanship and viciousness. Of all the Veithar, the Arighan are the most feared, their khan Boragen leading raids and conquests on settled places. His youngest daughter Tumenbayar is designated as his Blade, the child who leads conquering armies to victory. It is said she is as beautiful as she is powerful, her face hidden beneath a crimson silk veil as is Veithar custom. By bow and sword, she has won much plunder and many heads for her clan.

Venturing out of the Steppes, Boragen led his people to the outskirts of the kingdom. By Veithar clan laws, any settlement captured may by rights be burnt after being plundered, the nomads having no need for permanent settlements. Thus Tumenbayar took four towns and villages, burning them to the ground and putting their people to the sword. This made them enemies of the king, who paid no heed to the barbarian code of the Veithar, but also into the sights of the rival Tegussal clan. Using their scouts to track the royal army's movements, the Tegussal offered the Arighan clan a tribute of an undefended town. Only as Boragen and Tumenbayar arrived did they see the betrayal: the town was a royal stronghold and they were soon outflanked. Boragen was killed in battle and the Blade-Princess was captured.

The king was prepared to put every single Arighan to the sword, but he stopped upon Tumenbayar. Seeing her beauty, and wishing to humilitate the Veithar into submission, he enslaved the Blade-Princess, forcing her to become a court dancer. She of course refused, so the king caged her in the court, dressed in provocative silks to entertain his courtiers.

The resourceful Blade-Princess eventually escaped, but the her imprisonment only served to stoke her fires for revenge. She has three goals: first, return to the survivors of her clan and take her place as khan; second, avenge her father Boragen's death at the betrayal of the Tegussal; third, wreak vengeance on the king for his unjust refusal of clan law and her humiliation at his court.

Really glad to hear it, Roack. I hope the medication helps, and Mathom is kept at bay. :D

Who has two thumbs and got medication for her bipolar disorder and also heavily prognosed with ADHD?

This lady!

I know you can't see me, but know that I did the Fonz immediately after doing that.
Also, I realize I haven't spoken with you guys in a long time, so I apologize if the intimate details of my mental hygiene are a little inappropriate, but I'm excited I'm fixing my stuff, and I'm reasonably sure these were major contributors to my Mathomic tendencies.

Thank you Strolen. I think I can use GIFs instead - I'll keep the webms in case they can be inserted in the future.

The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1)
by Scott Lynch

Oh, boy. It started out a little rough but that was just a super fun read. Reminded me (but it has been a looong time) of the kind of style of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser. The book is sort of like Italian Job/Oceans 11 style con games in a fantasy city. The City is pretty cool, the cons are fun and while you can kinda see where it is going, on purpose, it is a very joyful ride. Just a fun book.

Gotta find me more in the series. I think there are 4 or so out there. Highly recommend it for a quick read that doesn't actually require reading the entire series unless you want.

I spent a few minutes seeing what I did but nothing jumped out at me in the time I had.

I probably never expected video to be used so it looks like it is being cleaned at some point. It might be with the editor (that is no longer supported so the documentation leftover isn't great anymore) is stripping it upon submission. I will have to figure out how to enable that. No promises on the timing though, you may have to settle for the link for the time being. Sorry about that.

I will keep video in mind if I get a chance to dig into this code again! Will also keep it in mind for the future...

Sorry I couldn't be of immediate assistance! :(
