In the distant future there is only war. The Corpse Emperor sits on his throne, immobile due to wounds succumbed while facing his once most favored of sons, the Warmaster, Thrice Damned be his name, Horus, the best, the brightest, Lupercal. There sits a jar inside the Emperor's Children Apothecarion, labelled "Honourable Soulaka," a Techmarine of legendary providence, murdered by the vile machinations of Fabius Bile, the gene-render of the III Legion. Also next to it sits a jar with the progenoid gland with the sigil of the Imperial Fists, the Sons of Dorn. These two jars are combined some years later into the being known as the Half-Breed, the bastard, Honsou. Honsou is a lowly line captain competing with First Captain Forrix and Assault Captain Kroeger for the favor of the one known only as the "Warsmith," Formerly Known as Barban Falk. The Warsmith's Fleet has descended from Medrengard to a planet called Hydra Cordatus. Only one soul knows the reasoning behind the sudden invasion. The Warsmith chooses not to reveal his secrets, as his ascendancy to daemonhood relies on the success of the mission. After months of hard campaigning and the multitude of the thunder of guns of all caliber, and even a Planetary Defence Torpedo, Falk has succeeded. The Fortress he built at the dawn of the Imperium has been broken open, it's secret Gene-seed vault laid open to him. He offers this up to the dark gods, and they are pleased, and Falk is elevated to princedom in eternal damnation. Honsou's competition did not survive the assault, Forrix came out second best in a fight with a Warhound Titan, and Kroeger, in a sick twist of fate was betrayed the god of blood he chose to follow, and laid low by a mere mortal whom he thought he could break for enjoyment. Moving Forward, Honsou's fortress of Khalan Gol on Medrengard had been destroyed by the Ultramarines captain Uriel Ventris. He swore revenge. The warmaster made pacts which would destroy the soul of a mere mortal, he formed alliances with beings so unholy as to not utter their names for fear of eternal damnation, yet even that wasn't enough, the stalwart defenders of the Imperium repulsed his assault at the heart of Maccragge, and Honsou fled into the warp. As many know, the Warp is a fickle being, and time, reality, and even matter are nothing compared to the whims of the beings there. The Warsmith emerged from the Abyss some time later changed. He now resembles something of an Equine animal from the picts on Ancient Terra, his armor having morphed to match his new frame, Necrodermis Arm forging a leg and hoof of unbreakable iron, his mind is still sharp, he realizes that he alone has made the transition back to realspace. He descends upon the world below him. The land of Equestria awaits, yet the Warmaster is a master of guile and deceit. Knowing his weapons are going to be useless in his altered form, he discards his daemon axe, and his ruinous bolter. If the Warsmith is going to enslave the world, it's going to be with Hoof and tooth. Yet the fire of ambition once more returns inside of him, to be able to return to his own reality, and be able to exact vengeance upon the hated warriors of Ultramar, and to finally carve a path through to Terra, and finally end the Corpse Emperor's reign.
= inspiration A father gives his daughter a blueberry pie, as she is playing very violent games in her computer. After saying those lines, Pinkie Pie emerges out of the pie, and glomps at the girl's face. The infuriated girl screams, curses away, and throws the poor pony to a door. As it drops and slams down to the floor, what reaction will be most likely Pinkie's reaction against this pony-hating girl's violent insolence? IT should be based on the show, never the fanfics or headcanons! (In case if you're wondering how did Pinkie get into the pie, she teleported herself into the pie's interior as soon as the father takes the pie into the room. )
Hello, friends, today I'm here to rant about the media. Specifically, about how they always blame things on violent video games. Let me start out by saying that the fact that they do this annoys me to no end. I put absolutely no effort into hiding that. For a variety of reasons, these media outlets all target violent video games, I'm going to analyze that a bit. Let's go to the most forefront example. When real tragedy strikes, the media loves to point a finger at the violent video game market as being the cause. I find this funny for several reasons. One of them being that the intolerance spread by the media is itself something that causes violence with the messages it spreads. A recent example of the media spreading intolerance is the new movie coming out called God's Not Dead. The reason this movie spreads intolerance is that it portrays Atheism in a hateful light. If the media is going to complain about the effects of negative messages in video games they could at least follow their own rules. To that end, good on the new Pope for his views on things such as homosexuality. I may not be religious but I can definitely see that this pope is a man of honor and deserves a great deal of respect from everybody of every religion (or non-religion) for the way he has exemplified tolerance. I tip my hat to him. Now, back on subject. I find it absolutely ridiculous how soft-skinned people are in this day and age. To put it simply, people today are easily offended and that's really annoying. Games that they target (I.e. GTA) are rated the way they are for a reason. The rating system is there to help parents guide their kids and stop them from seeing content that they shouldn't. A big problem is that many parents don't do anything at all, they ignore the ratings. To ignore the ratings and then to blame violent video games for your problems is incredibly immature and downright stupid. If parents aren't willing to put a teeny tiny bit of effort into being a good parent than no amount of censorship is going to solve the large amount of problems that they must have. People who buy games rated M or above for their kids who are very young and then complain about the content are the problem themselves, not the games they happen to buy. Even if you're not in North America I know for a fact that Europe has it's own rating system (Which is even MORE obvious than ERSB ratings because it specifies the exact age or over that it recommends) and even if you live some magical place that doesn't have a rating system, violent games usually have many visual clues on the cover that they are violent. A game that is violent isn't (Usually) going to have a meadow with bunnies hopping around on the cover, usually the title and boxart give away the content therein anyway, people should not complain. It comes down to this: If a game isn't meant for children it shouldn't be censored. You don't buy an M rated game and be offended by the mature themes for the same reason you don't walk into a shooting range and be offended by all of the guns lying around. Non-censored games do not create serial killers. What does create serial killers is intolerance, something that has long been created by media as a whole. Video games, much like the internet, are looked down upon by news groups and such that seem to be trapped in the 90s even today, even though TV and Newspapers are in the stage of simply being the dying breaths of an age old industry that is being replaced by bigger and better things. The fact of the matter is that the frequency of tragedy has actually gone down as video games have become more popular. After all, they express a front for releasing your stress that doesn't involve actually hurting anybody. It should make sense that somebody who is too busy leveling up their Dark Elf in Skyrim is too busy to go out and commit assault. If you don't want kids to play violent video games then don't let kids play the violent video games, after all, these games are not meant for children anyway. Games are usually very clear about their intended audience. All in all I guess what I'm trying to say is that to censor video games is censoring an art form, other art forms do not face this sort of censorship so why should video games? It simply doesn't make sense. It's time that video games got the respect they deserve, as they are an art form and nothing less. Nobody complains about movies, no matter what they're about, video games deserve the same (Or even more) respect when it comes to their content. The truth is, people who complain about video games just don't understand them, they're ignorant about the subject, maybe they're still stuck in the mindset of the NES days when only kids would play video games, but on the other hand, they also like to pick on video games because it's just what everybody else is doing. In short, they need to cut that shit out. Tell me your own thoughts on this issue in the comments.
