*All that I am saying is, it does not count as murder if it is an Uplited porpoise.*

Rage Mages By: angryscotsman93
   4 Years, 1 Month, 1 Week, 3 Days, 31 Minutes ago

'If you see a Rage Mage and he's swearing like an army of pirates, then he is a novice and you might be safe. If you see a Rage Mage and he is not only civil towards you, but even pleasant, then run for your life and pray to whatever gods you hold dear, for he is a master of hatred who has conquered his emotions and can turn all of his negative energies directly at you."

- Unnamed mercenary working with a Rage Mage.

Note: not a PG entry.

Charles Blackridge-The Dreamer By: angryscotsman93

"Have you ever felt like there’s a world just beyond ours? Some sort of strange dimension, a light dancing just beyond our fingertips? Well, I’ve touched that ‘sacred’ world, and I know its true face."

Liberty's Call PMC By: angryscotsman93
   5 Years, 8 Months, 3 Weeks, 3 Days, 13 Hours, 26 Minutes ago

"Liberty is every human’s right, and we fight for it, no matter how much the government doesn’t want us to. You are no longer civilians, humanitarians, or even Americans: you are Freedom’s shadow; you are Justice’s cloak; you are Liberty’s Call."rnrn-Sergeant Jacob O’Mallory addressing new recruits at Liberty’s Call training facility near Portland, Oregon.

Lance-Lieutenant Hailland Vairs By: angryscotsman93
   5 Years, 9 Months, 2 Weeks, 3 Days, 18 Hours, 52 Minutes ago

30 Guards: 27.) The Conjurer
This guard likes to learn magic in his spare time. Whilst the larger spells are beyond his ability, he knows a surprisingly large number of cantrips, which provide him with amusement or make his life easier. One lets him know if the Captain, Sergeant, or the Snitch are in the area, so that he never gets caught doing anything wrong.

The Knights Medicus By: angryscotsman93
   5 Years, 10 Months, 1 Week, 3 Days, 4 Hours, 30 Minutes ago

An order stretching back to the first days of the Plague, the Knights Medicus are starting to die out as the Plague deteriorates their numbers.

The Democratic Republic of the Peloponnese By: angryscotsman93
   5 Years, 10 Months, 2 Weeks, 16 Hours, 10 Minutes ago

"The Warriors of Greece shall never tire, and shall return our motherland to its proper place as the light of the world, and us to our place as the master race in this time of restlessness and walking death!"rn-Official Peloponnesian Superiority Party propaganda

Thomas Thorne, the Unfortunate Mage By: angryscotsman93
   5 Years, 10 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days, 17 Hours ago

Despite his great power, this mage desperately wishes that he was just average, so people would stop trying to plant axes in his back.

The Fringe Lands By: angryscotsman93
   5 Years, 10 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days, 6 Hours, 3 Minutes ago

An incredible world of magic, adventure… And curry, for some reason.

The race of Steve By: angryscotsman93
   5 Years, 10 Months, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 4 Hours, 26 Minutes ago

A completely average race, similar to humans, but with a few small differences.

       By: Psalmanazar

In the Middle Ages, and even up to the early twentieth century, most of Europe's executioners were related: the Sansons and Deiblers in France, the Pierrepoints in England, etc. The reason for this was that, it generally not being socially acceptable to, well, kill people, executioners and their children could, generally, only marry other executioners or their children.
The parallels with massively inbred, Hapsburg-style dynasties are obvious- imagine a rather clever but politically inept satirist noting this, and being sentenced by the latter to a meeting with the former; even worse, imagine a dynasty of deranged and deformed executioners- think Texas Chaisaw Massacre with government funding.
