The Account of Snorri Rangnarssonar
This is the account of Sorri Ragnarssonar, as taken from the book Snorrisaugar.
Snorri Ragnarssonar was born to Anna Mardonsdåttir and Helden Ragnarsson. Although he lived with them, Snori took the name Ragnarssonar, meaning 'Ragnar's Grandson'. This was due to his close relationship with his grandfather; his real father was a drunk and a thief.
Snorri's father was finally put in prison for stealing several pieces of jewelry from a neighbor. At this time, Snorri was 16, which was the age of manhood on Ancient Alba. Since he had denounced his father's name and instead taken his respectable grandfather's, Snorri was not shamed like the rest of his immediate family.
Unfortunately for him, Snorri's mother blamed him for his father's imprisonment, telling him that if he had helped with the crime, they would have gotten away with it. She openly mocked him and disowned him. Broken, Snorri left his home village of Bjergsmorgonssta
--I HAVE MADE MAJOR UPDATES TO ALSKA. PLEASE SEE http://linguifex.com/index.php?title=Alska#Articles FOR THE NEW VERSION--
I'm not going to update this because it's a pain to take all the text from that site out of its HTML formatting..
All verbs come in an infinitive form, starting with the word "i" (to-). I.e: i Spelen - to play. Verbs are conjugated in seven ways; each for a different pronoun. The pronouns are:
Jeg - I --------- Thu - You (Informal)
Han - He -------- Vi - We
Hun - She ------ De - They, (Dem - Them)
Es - It --------- Thi - You (Formal)
Thau - You All
The verb endings are as follows:
Jeg - "ar" (i spelen - to play .:. Jeg spelar)
Thu - "st" (Thu spelst)
Han, Hun, Es - "t" (Er spelt)
Vi - "en" (Vi spelen)
De - "an" (De spelan)
Thi - "en" (Thi spelen)
Thau - "t" (Thau spelt)
These rules apply to all verbs except "to be". In that case, everything conjugates to "er" NOTE: when using "er" as the primary verb in a sentence, all other verbs are l

Alska - now with more conlang goodness!ÿþAlska
-Alska is the Gal'Gai language, originating from the Gal'Gai homeworld of Alba, and can be classified as a Germanic Language. Alska comes from the same root language as the Hiigarin dialect of Proto-Norse, and the Nirn Hiigarin Nordic Language. (Nordic, Nordisc, or Nürdisch) There are 31 letters in the language, counting the letters for the sounds "ð", "þ", "æ", "å", "ö", and "ä".
The letters and their pronunciations are as follows:
A - as in father
B - as in Boy
D - as in Dog
E - as in Say, but slightly longer, without the roll-off
F - as in Father.
G - as in Gold. It is always hard, never pronounced "Gee".

The Concept of Pailing and Troll AnatomyThe Concept of Pailing, Troll Anatomy, and Troll Developement.
The trolls reproductive cycle is truly a concept shrouded in mystery. The reproductive organs used still a secret on canon terms to many of us avid fans. Plenty of headcanons have been created to atone for this absence in knowledge. Many popular ones tend to resurface again and again. My own ideals on the anatomy of trolls are fairly similar to some of these widely known headcanons.
Most likely, the best method to describe anatomy would be to start with the actual method of reproduction itself. Filling buckets. The need for concupiscent partners is actual far more urgent on Alternia, and is more likely to be a stress filled action with the amount of weight such an action holds for trolls. It is far more complex a thing than your usual instincts for reproduction. When the Imperial Drones appear at a hive door, you had better be able to fill the Filial Pails with genetic material or face an immediate dea
A Diagnosis on the Quadrants of TrollsA Diagnosis on the Quadrants of Trolls
Please Note: All ideas and descriptions below are for the most part opinionated. Ideas have been taken from the actual web comic itself to keep all ideas as proper and correct as they can be. This is merely a way to break down the quadrants in an easier understood way for those who still find themselves confused by the descriptions in the web comic.
Quadrants are best to be recognized by two main parts, red and black, that are then halved again to create the actual four quadrants. These four include the Flushed, Caliginous, Pale, and Ashen, quadrants. (HOMESTUCK, Pg. 004293)
These quadrants are shaped by which halves they share between negative black and positive red romance. The other way to group these romances are with the concupiscent and conciliatory categories. Concupiscent covering quadrants such as flushed, and caliginous, that have a roll in the troll's actions of reproduction a.k.a. bucket filling. In Conciliatory, like t
What Makes a Mary Sue a Mary SueA while ago, I made a Mary Sue/Gary Stu test for people to put their OCs through. Well, it got really popular. And a while ago, I got to thinking about what makes a Mary Sue a Mary Sue.
The test measures how many 'features' your OC has: relations, powers, their appearance, where they come from, enemies, etc. At the end of the test there is a disclaimer that a character may have many such features and still not be a mary Cue.
You see, when a single character has many features, they bend the story around themselves, until the story for the sake of the OC, and not the other way around. And that is a Mary Sue.
Now, the test is based on an estimation of how many features a character can have before they start bending the story, but it is possible for a single character to have so many features that they would normally qualify as a Mary Sue, but the writer may also give the other characters in the story more features than characters normally have, so the would-be Mary Sue is unable to
The Unfathomable ThoughtI believe in a paradox, really. It’s simple concept that many fail to comprehend. I believe in a reoccurring idea that never stops. Something that most people don’t understand, something they don’t want to. Something that society has pushed aside as another black hole as it continues swallowing its helpless victims. I believe in the cyclical disease that is depression.
I also believe in defeating it.
Depression is not something most look at as a sickness, because they do not interfere with the demons it brings along to its victims. They may sympathize, but they never truly understand the struggle that is depression. They do not see what nightmare lies on the inside.
For me, having to deal with this monstrosity of a ‘disease,’ this doesn’t come as much of a shock. I’ve watched as people came and went, just because of my depression. I’ve watched as they laughed, simply because I could not smile. It was a giant joke to them. It still is.
What Was the Driving Force? (History project)~ Before the Europeans began the New Imperialism in Africa, very little was known about the inner parts of the continent. However, after some explorers delved deeper into the heart of Africa, the Europeans soon realized how economically important this area was, and how much they could profit from it. At the time, Europe only had fairly small bits of land in Africa. But, they soon learned that they could make money and get riches from the inner parts of Africa, they decided to invade (this is what lead to the partitioning of Africa).
The "Scramble for Africa" was the invasion and occupation, colonization and annexation of African territory by European powers. By the beginning of the 1880s only a small part of Africa was under European rule, and that area was largely restricted to the coast and a short distance inland along major rivers such as the Niger and the Congo; but, Europe being the greedy people they were, they wanted more.
