It's finished!

Check out the latest from the studios.  Just a goofy parody of Dragon Ball Z, but still awesome (has an original music score by Tyson Kingrey, which by itself makes the video worth watching):

Getting Blogger to work for me . . .

Well, I started this blog a million years ago, never had anyone look at it, and hardly ever wrote anything on it.

But, seeing that I needed something more versatile than a Facebook fan page, I revamped it.  It looks much nicer now, and is now going to act as a "headquarters" web page for all my other stuff on the internet. 

Now I just need to figure out how to get people to know about it!

Some nitty-gritty on the world of the Lower Knights.

- The world's name, Atanoah, name means "World of Fires."

- It has 8 continents (determined more by political importance than geographical size), three of them being part of a chain of very large islands that circles the globe.

- Over 70% of the surface is ocean.

- Over 90% of the surface is covered by the Great Cloud, which resembles nuclear fall-out.

- The Cloud interferes with electrical operations, radio transmissions, and can cause severe psychological and physiological effects after prolonged exposure.

- There are approximately 125 Elements, or Core Fires, around the world that give Atanoah its name.

- Each Element burns off a radius of anywhere from 100 to 250 kilometers (65-160 miles) of the Cloud. Most are found in groups of three to seven, resulting in much larger openings in the Cloud (which is what accounts for the ~10% of the surface that’s habitable). These habitable areas are called Light Regions.

- There are 9 major nation states, some in political control of others. They are all located in Light Regions.

- To facilitate transportation between Light Regions, an orbital network was built, called the Sky Highway.

- The Highway is made up of a network of over 30 "nodes" (massive, city-sized space-stations in orbit), all connected to each other by "Bridgeway cables," some many thousands of kilometers long.

- Unlike objects in normal orbit, the nodes of the Highway have near-normal gravity, due to a clever mechanical arrangement of how they are suspended in orbit (more information is in the "Brave Nodes" note, which gives details on how the Highway works).

'bout time I start using this too, I guess.

Haven't use this site in ages, but I'm gonna need to start building a fan base, or somethin' Gotta get people excited about my writing and the Lower Knights (Go check it out and "like" the fan page, if you wish---the link is on the right).
