Flavor text.
« on: October 20, 2016, 08:36:50 AM »
So been working on creating flavor text for BattlegroundFW and have done quite a bit. Wrote it in Spanish though so will be translating it slowly then compile it and use it as a backdrop for an RPG system I've been working on and off for the past six years. Will post here small note like excerpts to give some flavor option for those who want it. Will try to post the timeline first though it isn't translated at the moment.
The bull bears it's horns in hope. Hope to fend off those who would feed on it's love. The love of all the ones who held the wall upon which all memories have been written. Existence fussed to rip and explode the bull into the breach of threat.To scream in all the colors the essence of it's love.

Imperial time line
It's written by the royal academy of Hawkshold. Rpresents the Imperial perception of whats going on at the time.

*Ulot is a term that means General or war chief.
**Many of the names will mean nothing as they are out of contest here. For example the war of the eight moons was a propaganda based fictional conflict created to rally support for the Imperial throne from the different dukes.

386-Beginning of the dark age. The Ulot wars have lasted nearly 200 years and left the human realms sundered into small clans.
388-The clans start rebuilding upon the remains of the previous civilizations. The concepts of nobility and clergy come along with new social theories that classify men and divinities.
396-In Westein Setuse is condemed for using necromantic arts. Setuse replies by letting loose his powers in Westein.
397-Setuse consolidates his control over Westein and starts a complete militarization of the kingdom.
403-Skalfson,Zorein and Skarogne unite with Setuse tempted by the promise of eternal life.
407-The three Ulots and Setuse spread terror with armies of undead.
409-Ashkral,Lazul and Azgal unite under a military alliance to confront Setuse.
412-Conflicts arise between Setuse and his chosen ones. The lands burn and undead start marching in strength throughout the lands. Lands burn and become barren as necromancy takes hold.
416-Hawkshold and the Dwarfs of Runegard are the only realms left with enough military power to oppose Setuse. A cabal  of wizards unite and sacrifice their lives for the ritual of Arakolm-kar by direct command Ulot Ram Heinz. The ritual is successful and most undead armies fall to dust as their masters powers wane. Setuse and the other great necromancers retreat.
417-The kingdoms start massive migrations.
426-The period known as the dark age is considered over. The lands start getting repopulated. Nobles arise and both castles and cities are rebuild.
428-The lost arts of longbows and Ballistae are rediscovered. Powder is a dwarven discovery but due to its volatile nature is discarded as dangerous.
434-Tormen participates in his first battle at the age of ten.
443-The Emperor unifies Amnia. He obtains command of the Mercenaries of Dérión.
445- The Emperor takes Vestig-Kalas. He starts a campaign against Grachnagh and as a result looses the support of Hawkshold.
446-Grachnagh  falls. Zhufbar and Drakwald join the Emperor
449-Ashkral is taken through force of arms by the Emperor.
450-Orcs are first seen and attack Senon.
Izor,Karak,Hirn,Barak and Sikmel join the Empire.
455-War with the Orcs reaches its climax.
458-The Elves attack the Ghan empire. The war of the 8 moons starts. Sarel and Lidia join . Gnomes are moved to Hawkshold.
459-Hawkshold becomes heavily militarized under the Emperor. The emperor defeats the orcs and declares Hawshold the heart of the Empire.
465-Lazul, Azgal and the Fremenari join.
467-Haraz,Heinrich and Morak join the Empire
470- The order of progress expand. Kerora is funded.
472- The war of the 8 moons is considered finalized.
473- The social structure of the Empire is finalized. Insurrections are quickly eliminated. The half Orcs are forced denied citizenship. They join the main mercenary armies.
479- The wood elves are gifted with the great Arak forest where they already lived.
481- They start building the first seafaring ships to repel increasing attacks by dark elf incursions.
482-The Wuxing invasion of the Eastern coast starts.

482-485 (PRESENTE)

Prof reading appreciated thanks. Spaniard present XD

Racial Background: Humans
We are a people worthy of ruling the world. As far as can be remembered there have always been human kingdoms. A diverse people with great cultures: to the North the great and powerfully built Lorns, to the south the agile Fremenians, To the East the skilled Senons, In the west the Actu and Gonsa, and in the middle of the Empire Hawkshold formed by the Deni and  Fedetoc.  Nowadays the interaction between all our lands have led us to share many common traits; exempting the case of the Lornians who speak of preserving the purity of the blood of their  god.
 Our historians have dated our recorded history to 473 years ago, when the first stone writings where found. From then on the rise of humanity to the present glory of the King Emperor has been unstoppable. We discovered the forge of metal and later the papyrus and the Sued ink. Many people have said that such discoveries are Dwarven by origin, such claims are nothing more than lies, the truth is they are human inventions. We will never deny that the Dwarfs have been helpful to commerce but to actually belive our inventions are theirs is ridiculous.
The era of adaptation was started during the 30th year of the divided kingdoms; for over two centuries progress was been made in all fields of research-sadly for us so it was with the Ulot wars that ravaged the lands- yet nothing was in vain as the faith of progress reached its cusp with the first metal alloys and the discovery of wind propelled ships.
The worst time during the Ulot wars is now remembered as the dark age. A period of fifty years during which Setuse. The most infamous of the necromantic lords let loose anarchy and funded the first legions of the undead. They slaughtered relentlessly until their defer with the arrival of the great Ulot Ram Heinz,  who, blessed be his name, convinced the conclave of the great magnus to give up their lives in the forming of the most powerful ritual known in history turning all the human kingdoms into a barren land for necromantic powers for over a decade.
It’s been thirty years since the great Emperor came forth from the chaos that the kingdoms where in. Great King, King Emperor, Defender of Hawkshold. Under his glorious image did the people of all the lands unify to be reborn.
Now the Empire extends from coast to coast, the dwarfs have been relegated to mere merchants  though useful allies in times of war. The leftover of the Setuse war are nothing more than forgotten sepulchers. Orcs live under the watchful eye of the Empire. With the new seafaring ships and future sources of wealth and power but a few years from now there is little time left before we achieve our ultimate glory. When such a time comes we shall be ready to face and exterminate the Dark elves that plague our oceans and  take the war to the Wuxin Empire, profane as they are.

These small text are a quick flavor add on XD for those who might be looking for some... flavor text I guess XD

Earth (Orcs)
“Earth we call it because that is what it is. The best part is we did not kill for it for we were smart and realized dadi Alexander told us to kill all of them and created us violent  to make us pass the test. Still the humans gave us all this pretty earth with stones and earth and told us of the bad ones who are somewhere over there. So we took control of the beast within us and like brothers we hugged them, Tom hugged with so much love so that he broke the back of the second general, and they did not like that, but the humans also know how to control the  beast and now friends we are who play kill each other. Also Tom said he was sorry and so we learned of the great secret wisdom that saying sorry is good. Ron likes to say sorry before he kills but Arrg the big green says sorry after he kills. He is slow in the head like me. So sad that dadi decided to become a god at that moment, but it’s better for all. Now we can’t hug him but we know he is everywhere we are. Long live dadi Alexander and long live earth where we can sleep and play of killing bad ones!!” 

Orcs: Orcs have no specific physical traits, enough to say that they are green and very dangerous. It is a popular believe that Orcs have a short life, yet due to their recent creation this has not yet been confirmed. Orcs have no sexual organs and no one knows how they reproduce. What we do know is that random humanoid females become pregnant near the Orc lands giving birth to half Orcs. That is why we believe Orcs of a certain age have to go back to their lands so as not to impregnate everyone. This is one of the main reasons why they can’t be allowed to expand too far. It is also the reason why they are profoundly hated by the High elves.
Orcs
I great wise one tell you this about people and history: …. We are Orcs!!! Yes, it is true, it may seem incredible, but so it is: to be Orc is incredible ….. And we have dadi god like Lornians or Lolos or Na-mos or how they say; those that live in ice cubes. Dadi is Alexander, who is god and not only dadi. People say there are many Orcs but I only see one type: we are type green!!! We are Orcs !!! Long live dadi Alexander!!!!!!!! RRRROOOOOAAAARRRRGGGGG!! Now time to kill and eat. Gron the not so wise.

Dusk Lord Karakan (Dark Elves)
The cities and citadels of our kingdom have no rival among all that was. We are the final step of evolution while the high elves are merely expired, inferior, and weak. Our power knows no equal, our beauty is beyond reach, and our intellect makes fools of all others. As if that wasn’t enough they dare to compare themselves to us. We who are the only ones who have proven that their is no need to share our ancestral lands with these week upstarts. Orcs, humans, dwarfs. What are they if not children playing and dreaming of being worthy of our disdain. They are incompetent, they buildings absurd and mediocre, their lives short and ephemeral, their skills limited, their actions laughable blunders. We should exterminate them all, even as slaves they are useless.

Dusk Lord Perora (Dark Elves)
We came to conquer. To live far from our brethren who hide upon the Islands. We came to be chalenged and not to hide behind the ocean waves. We came to spill blood and we spilled it across all the lands. We came to destroy and now the world fears us as they should. Our brethren upon the Islands speak of being a superior race, they are right. Yet we have proven to be superior to even them. We shall not reside in the past we shall strive with new edifications, pushing our accomplishments further than ever before. So hear my call and go forth for we shall need slaves in greater numbers than ever before.

So started a website where I could host some of my hobbies. For the moment it's very much so in it's infancy but I hope it will slowly but progressively shape up.
http://ostegunrhal.myfreesites.net/

Will be adding fluff there in the future and Battle reports. As well as uploading files for sharing as soon as I figure that part out. 

Right now using freesites. So far it's very easy and comfortable to work with.
