    Forgotten Archery

    So while reading through the forums I remembered some archery video I have seen some time ago and I really liked.The guy in the video actually manages to shoot arrows faster than legolas in the lord of the rings movie :) Reinventing the fastest forgotten archery. [VIDEO]

    Naming your gods.

    Well I have discovered an easy way to name virtually anything you could possibly want to name...from kingdoms to cities and people to entire races and planets. Basically you just search for adjectives to describe whatever you wanna name.For kingdoms and cities and planets you pick adjectives...

    A Roleplayers Quirks
