haha, think of it being a primarily action anime. but one of the huge focuses is going to be the relationships and the connections between the characters. But hey if its set in medieval era, i don't see why it cant have a war or 2 lol.

sorry, i just havn't had the time, I'll explain what I am trying to accomplish right now and perhaps you guys can help me with it. http://www.crunchyroll.com/user/cryolyger/pages

there we have some of my research materials and some ideas and concepts. now the general story goes along the lines of Amos leads a rebellion or starts an order, order meaning military power, or they can simply remain just rebels, either or, they go against the tyranny of the king, I have him labeled as Nero, those that know history of the Christian faith can see the significance in the name. So im having trouble from point a to point b, point a being the start, how can I form this alliance with characters I cannot give personalitys to, each individual character is going to be unique and inviting to the audience, I wish that not only the main character be loved but everyone finds a character they can more or less relate to. But also I have been working with satire tone, and I wish to set the mood just right, but alas its not coming along well. No powers, no fantasy elements, just normal humans with God on their side and a overwhelming prescence. Also, I wanted to mislead the audience, the main character is not who is to be portrayed in the front the main character of the story is one of the "supporting characters" but I am having a hard time putting it to ink. there is a general idea. and by all means I do not need to delligate out tasks, if you think you can come up with a character, and a personality to suit them by all means I will welcome it if it suits the mood. The characters I have listed are not concrete merely examples and possible templates to use.

For example the bio's of the characters, I wish to have the characters come alive, every action taken can be accounted for, I could tell you every move every nook and cranny about how they would react why and the underlining reasons for them to join in such a cause, one such character

Character Chronicles-

Mikelle- "devotion" (this is the theme of what I wanted the character to portray)
Gender-Female (self explanatory)
Age-19 (i cant relate to people alot younger or older than I am, so my characters age limits are restrained)
height-5'6"-5'7" (not too tall but tall enough to be a threat lol)
weight-120 (shes a fighter and she eats, she is tough, she eats meat lol)
Attire- Leather vest, rags, brown (peasant gear she can't wear armor because it would slow her down and she needs to be quick and strong)
Class- Brawler (now I am skeptical on this, I put down class, so as to how they would fight how they would act in a battle)
Hair style-short, messy spiked (I have it based loosely on a girl with a similar appearance)
Hair color-orange/brown (leaning towards orange, however I wanted to stay away from fantasy colors blues pinks that sort of thing, however, if you can justify why they have that hair color we can work something out)
eye color- green (are you starting to visualize her? think origin or birth of that in germany or somewhere along those lines)
weapon-fists or daggers (going back to brawler, this is not to limit the character in having more than a set amount of usable weapons more over a guideline of what they specialize in, they could of grew up in an army base and can use a wide variety, but excell at dual swords kind of a thing)
allegiance-rebels (temporary category system pretty much allegiance is hero or villain, however I do have a character who is a merc and one who is undecided so it is based on preference as well as how they would fit)
details- likes amos, amos accepted her in, when her family was burned in their house, during a village raid to collect tribute to the king. Amos took her into his group not as a fighter but as a refugee. (little back story, didnt want too much details as I am unsure of exactly this is where they meet but I do like the idea of him saving at least one member of a village up in flames)
Accesories-cross necklace given to her by her mother (significance, shes human so she has a valuable that reminds her of her lost loved one, in this case her mom, now they were not rich folk, however the mom had this cross and it was precious to her, and now it is a momento of mikelle)

Proposition: To all those participating, let us bring up a topic to discuss, the land, the setting of the story is ever so important, and while I would love to use the time and place to fit the historically accurate setting, I think that race for the most part would be an issue. And it would be too limiting on our characters diversities, for instance I would be able to bring in one character in mind who is Japanese in descent. Without controversy of how he got there and completely wasting time creating a back-story for him. So I propose, setting is in an "alternate" England, that is to say not necessarily England but something similar. However, if we are to remain historically accurate I don't think hair color could be anything other than brown, red, blonde, black, or white, or a variation of it. Versus alternate England, if you want a character with green hair, it is accommodable. What say ye brethren? ahaha, oh and I am having a gay ol' time trying to stay with a name for it (that is sarcasm, this is frustrating lol) So if you have time or are considerably bored, look over later today or after to the pages for the title and we can vote for what sounds the best/what goes best.

actually yes, I thought I would wait until I had a vast amount and just have a big update. As it turns out I have some new plot twists to work in and working on a name. I am very creative but its hard for me to put anything concrete down. Haha, ill work on typing them up, look for an update as soon as tomorrow, but deffinately before tuesday (as I am gone 10-15th)

Haha, you know what, I like it. The idea is simply the tom-boyish, girl next door type. But fists or daggers would seem to masculine in hindsight. Quarter-staff, has her on the front lines, but puts a more delicate twist on it. Plus it would make the characters more diverse, seeing in how I had no one with a similar weapon. And a spear or pole-arm, doesn't seem befitting of a lady.

I'm fiddling with ideas, bouncing them off other characters, trying to find relationships to test and tamper with.

Ok, for this next piece, I am going to separate it into two parts, one: explanation and background; two: story/dialog.

First: The setting once again is Medieval Europe, alternate Europe rather. Now a brief history lesson on the knights templar, they were composed of peasants, monks, farmers (earning their nickname "Pauvres Chevaliers du Temple" or literally meaning "Poor Knights of the Temple"), they were in no way noble, they gained their status and their prestige by the Pope. They lived on alms and the original 9 made them such a small order that their only job was transporting pilgrims to the Holy land, protection from the bandits, poor times lead people to means they didn't wish to do but seemingly forced to, because of their poverty, an example of a bandit: someone forced from his home because he couldn't pay taxes, or someone wrongfully arrested by corrupt officers (alot of corruption in those times, absolute power corrupts absolutely). But anyway that is how I wished to start this scene, with a brief back story of a similar type of order that I was looking for, so they were in now way special, they trained themselves (some being legitimate knights), but the recruits were everyday people, a blacksmith here, a farmer there, just peasants. Now I am paraphrasing the accounts, and there was more to it, but thats the general idea. Normal people fighting in a noble cause.

Amos' Speech:

(Amos given the "dumb, unsophisticated, and neglected people of the land", he uses his military tactics, their strength, courage, and miscellaneous skills to his advantage.

Amos: "An uneducated man is not a useless man, for they can learn to be sophisticated. If a man's talent is not one of nobility, perhaps his talents lie elsewhere"

Nero: "You think you can defeat me, and my glorious empire, with a bunch of peasants and farmers?"

Amos: "How can you neglect your people, the very cornerstones of your empire lie upon those whom you cast aside. Do you not know?! Your very empire was founded by these 'Peasants'; to disregard a farmer is kicking out a leg of your foundation. Soon you will run out of legs, and your empire will fall...I will use the very ones whom you neglect and we will rise to take back a nation which is rightfully ours. We ARE the Nation, lest ye ever forget!"

Haha, comments comments, I am horrible at Dialog, I never was one to tell stories before. Where is it lacking depth, or where is it vague. The scene once again is Amos with the farmers, the blacksmiths, the bakers... Standing up to the King for the first time. Perhaps, something might have pushed the envelope. Setting, the early night, the torches lit in the kingdom. (I will post the other one tomorrow)

Ok I am wiping my hard drive so I won't be able to update until I get my other computer online. Shouldn't take to long, but thank you for your patience. I wrote most of my files to disc already, just I think I am going to just shed my music, way too much to burn. But here is my latest installment, the title of this little chapter is traded your life for mine, very ominous, yet righteous at the same time.

Traded Your Life for Mine-

King forces church to pardon him, King has country in his pocket. (Current situation)

Amos to hang in the gallows when corrupted officer abuses his power and nearly kills a keep at the local tavern. Amos intervenes, during the officers drunken stupper, he lashes out in rage, he manages to get his sword stuck in one of the pillars of the tavern. The officer charges at Amos, only for him to step aside and have the officer impale himself (unintentionally). Amos is grieving on this, had he not gotten involved he wouldn't have killed anyone, and is sentenced to death for killing an officer, as per the cree of the land.

and that's all I got, stay tuned for more from project: no name lol.

Ok well, good news didn't have to wipe the hard drive, fixed brothers comp in time. Today's installment is entitled "A Conversation With a Horse", now I have no idea where i wanted to fit this in, but its all i got for now, so maybe u guys can help decide, its a light-hearted chapter, meant to make u laugh or chuckle, anyhow on with the scene:

Legend:
Blue is Amos, Red is character haven't decided yet, and black is whats going on.

A conversation with a horse:


Amos noticing two bandits lying next to his steed.

Amos:" what did you do?"
Horse sneezes.
Amos:"so they were trying to take you away and you kicked them?"
Horse shakes his head.
Amos: "You kicked them twice? Maybe we should have you on the front lines with us"
(New Recruit):"He can talk to horses?"
Amos: "anyone can talk to horses, its getting them to talk back is the hard part."
(New Recruit)"So that horse told you what happened just now?"
Amos:"Don't be silly, I already knew what happened, but the horses like it when you talk with them, they like attention and respect, same as we all do."
(New Recruit)"Then how did you know what happened?"
Amos:"Upon surveying the scene, you can tell by the fact the horse is spooked, the way the bandits are positioned, the fact they are wearing bandit clothes didn't hurt, oh and the huge hoof print on that fellows forehead, that one solidified it."
Laughter ensues...
Amos:"Plus if you take a look at that one there, he is too big to be taken down by one strike, had to have been 2."
