The Continent and Empire of Kataria

Well, today I'm going to be explaining one of my many ideas for a fictional book series I hope to write one day. It's the Continent and Empire of Kataria (Pronounced Ka Tare Eee Ah). The setting is the Earth which  is really four times larger then the earth we now know. With different weather patterns, larger seas, and a lot of historical differences. Kataria is located in the Atlantic Ocean. It's a little bit smaller then Russia. The Steampunk Era that was between 1885 and 1920 began there. Kataria has many notable and large cities. First of which being Eldercron, which covers almost all of the eastern coast of Kataria. It's known for airship production. The next city of note is Capitol City. (Not a very creative name, huh?) Capitol City holds the royal stronghold, where The Emperor and his family live for around six months a year, the other months are usually spent in Eldercron or Tinsin, which is known for its mines and refinery's. So, I may explain Katarian culture and the species that live on this continent better in another post, but I think this quick explanation should sum it up for now.

The Elder Scrolls Three:Morrowind

Today I will be reviewing TES3:Morrowind. This is my second Elder Scrolls game I will be reviewing. This game is rated T for teen. You can play as ten different races. Argonian, Khajiit, Dark Elf, High Elf, Wood Elf, Imperial, Nord, Redguard and Breton. I'd have to say this is probably my favorite Elder Scrolls game, with a wide variety of weapons, armor and spells to choose from. All in all, I give this game a rating of 9 out of 10. Wonderful game.

The Old Gamers;Writing Prompt

Vern and Fred; the gamers

This is a story of two (literally) old friends, named Vern and Fred. They meet every time the planets align to play video games. They are currently playing Troll-Buster 3, the video game they played when they were children. It brings back good memories of the Ye Olden Times. Fred is a lawyer and is very intent on playing fairly. Vern is a pub-owner who just wants a fun time and doesn't care about playing fairly which causes problems. They both love to argue. The next time they play will be in the year 3012, if their wives will let them.

                                                                     THE END

Writing Prompt 2

Write what it would be like to be a pinata at a child's birthday party:

The Tale of Joey the Pinata

Hi, my name's Joey the Donkey Pinata. But you can call me Joe. I live in the local party store. Life here is good, despite some of my Pinata buddies disappearing. Life use to be peaceful and easy, until yesterday. Here's what happened:

It was normal day like any other. A few customers. I was talking to my friend Jesus the Cactus Pinata. The door opened and in walked a fat man with a whiny child. The fat man said "Pick which one you want Kenny." The whiny child looked up at me and Jesus the Cactus Pinata and pointed! Before I knew it I was thrown into a trunk of a car! After what seemed hours of driving, we arrived at a small home. They took me from the trunk and shoved me into a closet. I yelled and yelled for someone to help me, but no one did.

The next day, the wife as the fat man calls her, takes me out of the closet and onto a table. She brings out a bowl of sweet things wrapped in paper. She begins filling me with them in a rude manner! Afterwards, the whiny kid comes in and starts begging the wife for candy the sweet stuff wrapped in paper. She said he'd have to wait for his friends to come... wait, there is more of him? This can't be good. Later that day, they took me into their backyard and laid me down on a table. Soon other whiny children showed up.

After a lot of screaming, kicking and yelling the whiny children lined up near a tree. The fat man picked me up and tied a rope around my middle, then hung me from the tree. What could this be? Some strange ritual? The whiny children started grabbing bats. Wait, bats? The whiny kid Kenny comes up first. I must escape! The fat man blindfolds him. Uh, maybe I'm supposed to bat him? He swings, and misses my head by hardly an inch! He takes off his blindfold and looks at me disappointed. After many whacks to  me, the whiny children stop attacking me. I'm beaten and bludgeoned.

It looks as if the torment is over. But then the fat man comes forth with a bat as well. He raises it high above his head! He brings it down on my stomach! It was gruesome! My insides spilling everywhere! The whiny children viciously fighting each other for them like hungry wolves! It was horrible. He soon untied me from the tree, and throw me in a bin. Days later, I was taken once again. Now, I live all alone in the local dump. But hey, it isn't that bad. I met Jesus the Cactus here a few weeks later. He was missing his hat, but otherwise fine. And that, is my tale. So think next time you beat a pinata, think "What if this thing has feelings? Should I be doing this?" So please, stop the cruelty and abuse of pinatas everywhere!

Skyrim Episode 4:Picture day! Part 2

'Allo, m'names Jackal, professional Dragon Hunter, and Dragonborn. (Person who is born with the soul of a dragon and can use ability's such as using "Shouts" which are ancient words of power, they can also absorb dragon souls.) Jaspo mentioned me earlier. This is a picture of me with m' dragon scale armor and deadric blades. (Deadra are like demons of the Elderscrolls world, their weaponry is deadly.) I look forward to posting more stories on me, I got loads to tell! And Noah is also sorry that he hasn't been posting much on his blog, but today he has had a burst of new stories! The next episode is going to be about my first dragon battle! See you then!

Skyrim Episode 4:Picture day! Part 1

Noah finally got the Pictures working! This one above me is one of me fishing!

And this one is of me working the forge!

Skyrim Stories: Updates

Hey there, it's me, Jaspo. Noah's been working on trying to put up screenshots of me. But it's more difficult then it sounds. Anyhow, the series may be moving on to another Khajiit, Jackal. He's really powerful. But don't worry! There'll still be plenty of stories about me! Also, as a disclaimer. Noah doesn't own any of the characters, people places or things in the game The Elderscrolls IV:Skyrim. Bethesda does. He only owns me and the other characters he makes. So, just wanted to clear all that up.

Assassin's Creed

Assassin's creed; (the first one, I don't reccomend the others.) I highly enjoy this game, you are in 1191ish AD, in the Holy Lands. You play as Altair, a master assassin. You use your weapons such as the hidden armblade, throwing knives, and swords to combat the evil Templars; a  group dedicated to causing war and suffering to those around them. In this game there is a large amount of parkour(climbing buildings and jumping about the roof tops.) I very much enjoyed this game I haven't even played it all yet. 9/10

Rated:Mature (Contains foul langauge)

I take in the fresh air, this is much more better then that stuffy cave. I look around until I spot the road. I walk down to it, looking ahead to see buildings, I presume this is Riverwood. I walk down the road into Riverwood. I soon meet Hadvar's Uncle, Alvor the Blacksmith. Me and Hadvar tell him all about "Helgen", where the dragon attacked. He tells us we best come inside, he then gives me a load of things, saying I'll need the supplies. With the items is a enchanted ring! Just putting it on makes me feel like I could take a few extra blows! He tells me to go to Whiterun, a city not far from here. He tells me to speak with Jarl (King/Mayor) Balgruuf.

It's currently dark out, so I head over to the inn, The Sleeping Giant. I sell some drinks to the cook, but I keep the fancy Black Briar Mead. I rent a room from Delphine, the Inn keeper. I go to sleep, and wake up around 8:00. I reach into my bag and eat the first thing I find, some salmon. This stuff is delicious! I quickly run up to the cook to see if he has more, he tells me he doesn't. OUTRAGE! I decide I can get some salmon later. I go outside "The Riverwood Trader". A small shop. There are two people inside, arguing. I shy back to the door, I was about to open it and leave until the guy behind the counter notices me "Oh, a customer. Sorry you had to hear that." I learn his name is Lucan, and the person he was arguing with name's Camilla, his sister. I sell all  the junk I got off of my wanderings to him. Now for my next great goal, get more salmon!

Book List:

Some of the books that I've read:

Harry Potter Series books; two times
Books of Umber Series
Percy Jackson Series; two times
Guardians of GaHoole'  Series

Skyrim Episode 2: Bandits and Pickaxes

Well, I have a lot to do. First of all, being getting some better equiptment. I notice a path leading up a hill. I follow it to find a scary looking fellow with a big weapon throwing threats at me. I step forward a bit and he charges me. I use my Cat Fu to bring him down. I see that he was guarding a mine entrance, I enter and go down a tunnel. I notice something, a tripwire. I carefully step around it and continue to find a bridge with two other people talking; I figure they're bandits. One of them notices me and yells "Up there!" and runs at me with his buddy. After a few swings of the claws they are kaputs. I take one of the Bandit's armor, so now I have some new gear.I find something on the ground, a pickaxe! I then look around and find a iron ore vein, I start hackig away untill I get ore.

I find a lever in a small room; I pull it and it drops another bridge. Two bandits come over the bridge. I try to sneak around them but one spots me, they charge. I quickly take them down with a few swipes from my claws. I find one of them has better armor then I have, so I take it and equipt it. I find another iron ore vein. I have six iron ore now. I continue on ahead untill I find a bandit sitting in a chair outside a gate, after disposing of him I find a key on him, I unlock the gate he was sitting infront of. Inside is a large chest filled with valuables. I loot it and continue on, mining some iron ore as I go.

I walk out onto a balcony overlooking a forge, with a fellow khajiit working it, I try to sneak up on him, but he sees me (I really need to work on sneaking, huh?) I take him down before he can land a blow on me. This is a pretty nice forge they got here, all its missing is a leather tanning rack and a smelter.

I find a book that raises my smithing level, I also found some iron ingots and some iron ore. I was about to be on my way when something lands next to me, a arrow! a archer is up on a higher bridge shooting at me, I run up the ramp and make my way towards the bridge. I take down the archer, I take his bow and his arrows.

One of his buddys run up behind me and nearly cleaves me in two. But once again, another villian falls to my Cat Fu! I mine some more ore, and find a store room, that has a small pile of precious gems! I finally find the exit and leave, with lots of plunder!

Skyrim Episode 1: Dragon Fire

I wake weary and broken, I'm on a carriage traveling down a road, there are three other men aboard with me, one of them notices my waking. "Glad to see you finally woke up, you were trying to cross the border, Right?" says the one in armor. "Walked right into that Imperial ambush, same as us and that thief over there." I look over next to him and to see a man in rags, I guess he's the Thief. The Thief and The Guy in Armor start arguing, while the man sitting next to me stays silent. I notice he's silent mainly because he has a cloth over his mouth. I notice a cart ahead of us filled with people wearing the same armor as The Guy in Armor. They must be comrades or something. Beyond the 2nd cart is a man that reminds me a lot of pictures I've seen of Jullious Ceasar. I then see our destination; a small village.

As we approach the gate of the village a man yells to Jullious "General Tullious, Sir! The Headsman is waiting!". Headsman? I don't like the sound of Headsman, our carriage rolls to a stop and we soon file out. In front of us is a man holding a book and next to him is a woman wearing heavy armor. The man starts listing us off. I learn The Guy in Armor's name is Ralof and the Thief is Lokir and the Gagged Man sitting next to me is Ulfric Stormcloak. The Jarl (ruler of a city) of Windhelm, supposedly a ruler of some rebellion. They call Lokir forward... He starts frantically pleading with them he isn't a rebel. He then yells "You're never going to kill me!" and he runs past  them.

The Lady in the heavy armor then shouts "Archers!" and before Lokir could escape; he fell to the arrows. The man with the book then looked at me and commands; "You there, come forward!" I nervously step forward. Wait, I feel like I've forgotten something, oh yes, the names Jaspo, I'm a Khajiit (Cat Person) I have grey fur and black markings all over my face, just to sum myself up(I'll try to post pictures soon).

 Any how, The man with the book asks me if I'm from a trade caravan, then makes a rude comment on how my kind always find trouble. He then asks the Captain (The Lady in Armor) " what should we do?" because I'm not on the list. She seems to think for a moment then says "I don't care, he goes to the block."

 Wow. She's nice."I'm sorry, I'll make sure you're remains are returned to Elswery" (My homeland.) Well, my remains shall be returned home. That makes me feel better (it doesn't) we then approach the block. A man that has the same armor as Ralof approaches it. I avert my eyes for a few moments till I hear cheering, and some rude names being thrown at the Imperials."Next, the Cat!" commands the Captain. The Cat? I have a name you know...

 I approach the block and get rudely shoved onto my knees then kick down onto the block, I look up at the headsman, he's a creepy fellow. I guess that's why he's the headsman. He raises the axe and I think about my life until a dragon swoops out from a mountain and flys with great speed on top of a tower directly behind the headsman. The dragon releases some form of blast from itself; knocking over the headsman. Well, instead of getting my head chopped off, I'm going to be eaten/burned to death by a dragon! I quickly get up from the block I notice Ralof who is now free from his bonds. He yells "Come on, Khajiit! The gods won't give us another chance, this way!"

 He runs off to a tower. I figured it would be safer in the tower, so I follow. Inside is Ulfric Stormcloak, who quickly slams the door behind me. Him and Ralof converse a bit until Ralof announces "We need to move, Now! up through the tower, quickly!" I ran up the tower to find that the stairs had caved in; and one of Ralof's buddys was shifting through it. He turned and saw me "Come help me move some of these rocks to clear the way I..." But before he could finish whatever he was saying the wall bursted open, and the dragon stuck his head inside the tower and breathed fire engulfing Ralof's Comrade. Ralof came running up the stairs to see the hole in the side of the tower."See that inn on the other side?" He asked. "Jump through the roof and get going, I'll catch up with you!"

 I nervously looked through to see a building with its roof missing. If I missed this jump I'd either drop to the ground atleast 40 feet bellow, or I would hit the side of the building then fall. Luckily, I'm a cat, and making the jump was easy. I ran outside of the Inn and saw The Guy With the Book; but he didnt have a book in his hand, just a sword. He noticed me and told me to follow him, we ran through the burning streets till we came upon a large clearing in the buildings.

 General Tullious was shouting commands to some mages shooting fireballs up at the dragon circling over head. General Tullious notices The Guy with The Book and shouts "Hadvar, into the keep soldier, we're leaving!" Hadvar (A.K.A The Guy with The Book) runs off towards a archway. I run after him and enter a courtyard I see Ralof coming in from another archyway; this time he was armed with a axe. Hadvar and Ralof then insulted each other and ran off to diffirent doorways, each one yelling "This way, into the keep!" so I had a decision to make, follow Hadvar, who's friends tryed to chop my head off, or Ralof, who got me in this mess in the first place.

 I made a moments decision and followed Hadvar some of you may be wondering "Why follow Hadvar, the Imperials tryed to chop you're head off!" Well, they seem a lot less Rag-Tag then the rebels, and Hadvar seems friendly enough. Besides, the rebels are very "Skyrim for the Nords" And I'm a Khajiit. So once me and Hadvar were inside, he freed me of my bonds. He tells me to go fetch some gear, so I walk over to a chest and get some gear, as in a pair of boots, I don't need a sword, I'm trained in Cat Fu. I put on the boots and we run down a passage, to find two rebels talking. They yell battle cries and charge us, luckily I use some of my awesome Cat Fu and take them down, we continue down stairs, to hear the sounds of a fight, a frail old man and a strong younger one fighting two rebels, me and Hadvar charged in and helped them.Turns out the Old Man and the Strong Dude are the two torturers

. I figured hence the cages. Hadvar trys to convince the older one, but he just thinks We're crazy, the strong Torturer agrees to come with us. I was about to head down a tunnel till Hadvar calls me over, I walk over to a cage with a dead mage in it, Hadvar claims that his equiptment may be useful, so he hands me some lockpicks. Why Hadvar has twelve lockpicks, I will never know. So me, Hadvar and the Torturer head off down a tunnel. We meet some rebels and do battle. Not much interesting happened after that besides some Giant Spiders and a Bear (All of which I slayed with my bare hands!). Just as I was tiring we found the exit, I'm glad to be back in Daylight!

Me and Hadvar then split up after talking, he told me that if I follow the road I can find Riverwood. His uncle's the blacksmith there. I walked along the road and found a abandoned camp. No one was home, so I helped myself to some of their stuff I figured I needed it more then they did. I then stopped at the river staring at the mountain knowing the Dragon was still lurking there somewhere.

NOTE: This is a documentation of me actaully playing Skyrim, I'm not making it up. However, this is through the eyes of Jaspo, and all the commentary is what he would say or do. Feel free to make suggestions on what I should do next! Also, not all the grammar and spelling will be correct. I'll be trying to post pictures as soon as I can.
