Research Record - from Octo 2017

If for no other reason than one day fifty years from now I'll be curious (despite being long dead, along with the internet and written language), allow me to present, for my viewing pleasure...



another research record.



Eesh, stop cheering so loudly. I can barely hear myself think.

''` ~ `''

[this is actually from October. Seems I hit Save rather than Publish. Let's remedy that RIGHT now, shall weh?]

Story in Progress:

Turesia

Google Searches of note:

Morticada
Sweet. 44 search results total and none in English. Claimed!

Decimated
It technically means reduce BY one tenth, but the common acceptable use, and my preferred use is to reduce TO one tenth. If only there were an actual word for this...

Pyrosome
Sounds fiery. It's not.

Emberite
Only 2,110 results. Kind of high for me to hijack it. Maybe I'll change the spelling.

Bryce Dallas Howard
One time I found an image of her that perfectly embodied Syvea from Turesia. Her expression and pose painted a picture of frail innocence in a bloody, callous world.

What's a bloodstone?
I was curious

Rihanna
There are several pictures of Rihanna online that represent Magister Obsydia frighteningly well. Her eyes and mouth have no trouble projecting an emotion of lofty royalty. She appears as comfortable as she is commanding, and all with more than a little skin exposed. Did I mention she's hot.

What does a magpie sound like?
Because I was curious.

Are sharks in Irma?
BECAUSE WHAT IF THE ANSWER WAS YES!?

Waterfall to the ocean
I needed imagery

Map of medieval Scandinavia
I needed more imagery

Does lettuce make you poop?
BECAUSE WHAT IF THE ANSWER IS YES!?

Define sanguine
Bloody, but less likely to be mistaken for a British "darn"

What fish did vikings eat?
Lots of better ways to learn this probably. But it worked.


Wikipedia Searches of note:

Halibut
This can work for the story, but I've never liked the word itself...

Thunnus
I guess I could just say tuna and everyone would know what I was talking about

Lutefisk
Looks gross and seems really complicated to prepare

Fourth Dimension
Gotta brush up on this sort of subject now and then

Sod House
Because that's what most of the homes in Fohrvylda are

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
Research for a simulation I'd like to build one day

Ground sloth
Research for monstahs!

Glyptodon
Research for monstahs!

Daeodon
Research for monstahs!

Quantum Computing
Another subject I need refreshers on now and then

List of Demons in Ars Goetia
Research for monstahs?

Pontianak
Research for monstahs!

Mandragora 
I've always been fascinated in the sorts of a screaming plants that flourish in the blood, shit, and semen crusted soil beneath the gallows.

Hulder
Research for monstahs!

See ya next time

  1. Always worth posting, even if you think no one is reading. By the way, I ate a ton of lettuce a few weeks back (a month? I forget now), in one sitting, and the result was green poop. Because you wanted to know!!!!

    1. Hahahaha. I think I was having a "regularity" conversation with a friend when I looked that up. I'm reporting your answer back to him (and will surely bewilder and confound him in doing so, months later).

      Thanks for validating this exercise of mine. I do enjoy it and I like having it recorded :)
