TnT: General Kvothe vs Flash Aristocrats
(Please read artist's description first)
Day 1
    The Eastern Aristocrats are hereby to share their wealth with the military police for distribution the well-being of the nation! You are to be given 48 hours to comply to our demands. Failure to do so will result in a forceful takeover.
    I spoke these words in front of the Mansion of an aristocrat known as Flash about 24 hours ago at 13:34 hour. It is now 12:02 and I have yet to even see movement from their mansion. Madame Green, my superior, tasked me taking care of the Flash Aristocrats, be it peacefully or not. I had hoped to resolve things peacefully but it doesn't seem like this was going to be the case. I came out from my tent and decided to patrol the nearby gristmill. I struck a small conversation with the farmers that worked there, but it didn't amount to much; most seemed too intimidated to say more than monosyllabic responses. Regardless, I was grateful for their servic

Cultural Curations: Felyne Rescue Squad
Introduction:
A large part of the Guild's success is due to the great amount of care they give to their hunters. They try to make sure that every hunter that goes out in their name safely returns home, at the least, alive. This is made possible thanks to the Felyne Rescue Squad, a group of felynes who are trained in first-aid and extraction of hunters who are in peril. 
The FRS is a completely voluntary service with good benefits to the felynes that enlists. Though benefits differ depending on the village, most include some sort of health benefit. However, arguably the biggest benefit to being in the FRS is the amount of human connections a felyne can form during this job, particularly with guild personal. If a felyne ever wanted to work for or be involved with the guild, it was almost necessary to be a part of the FRS. 
Origins:
At first, this job was tasked to other specialized hunters that were trained in stealth and distraction to stay out of sight during a

Najarala Ecology
Basic Information:
Najaralas are powerful snake wyverns that mainly inhabit areas with a lot of trees and foliage to help it blend and sneak up onto prey. These four-limbed snakes have powerful muscles that lets them move around gracefully with ease. Najaralas are uniquely known for their detachable tail plates which whistle loudly through the air as the fly and then shatter when a Najarala rattles the plates on its hood or tail. If that wasn't loud enough, Najaralas have the ability to fire supersonic waves of air as a last resort to do in adversaries. 
Locology:
Najaralas need to live in areas with dense vegetation to hide their massive forms from potential prey. The Primal Forest, Everwoods, and Forest and Hills are where Najaralas are most commonly found. On the occasion where food is scarce in its main hunting grounds, Najaralas will venture into the swamp for food. However, in doing so they become increasingly aggressive to make up for their lack of cover, over

Glyde's Apothecary: Potions + Mega Potions
Required Components: herb (mature preferred)+ blue mushroom (mature preferred) + Honey (For Mega Potion)
Tools Required: knife, flask, burner (firestone can work as well), Grinder Wheel (or mortar), Strainer (optional), stirrer (preferred for Mega Potions)
Preparation: Make V-like slits into the mushroom's stalk in multiple places to have the latex drain to a single point. To extract milk from the cap, cut the cap vertically in half, and make diagonal incisions down towards one of the cut ends to have it drain there. Drain the milk into a flask and set over the burner on a low heat. The milk should start to turn green a few minutes. In the meanwhile, lay down some herbs into the grinder plate, and grind the herbs to a pulp. When the milk turns green and starts to bubble, empty the contents of the flask (caution: flask may be hot) into the grinder plate and slowly grind the mixture together as to not splash it around. This can also be done similarly with a mortar. When the mixture

Glyde's Fast Facts: Blue Mushroom
Kingdom: Fungia (Fungus)
Class: Champignen (Mushroom)
Order: Branchiae (Gills)
Family: Trunctus (Root)
Genus: Lacatae (Milk)
Species: Indigo (Indigo)
Introduction
Lacatae Indigo, or more commonly known as the Blue Mushrooms, are a common species of the Trunctus Family of mushroom, i.e. mushrooms that grow near or on the tree trunks of other trees. As their name suggests, they are known for their blue color and are often food for forager creatures, and are commonly used to make very basic forms of medicines.
Appearance
As with all mushrooms, the mushrooms that we see above the ground are the reproductive structures of the fungus, also known as the fruiting body.
Blue mushrooms vary in size and looks depending on the age of the mushroom. Young mushrooms have the outer margin of the cap rolled in but eventually rolls out and elevates with age. Additionally, while their cap is initially convex, the tip usually depresses as the edges of t

Yian Kut-Ku Ecology
Basic Information:
Yian Kut-kus are often the first true wyverns that many beginning hunters will face. Kut-kus mostly live in temperate zones keeping to the forests, where they are less seen by larger predators. For how commonly they are known to hunters, very few pay close attention to details. 
Locology:
As mentioned before, almost all Kut-kus live in temperate forest areas, avoiding extremely cold or hot places. They also are known to inhabit swamps, risking safety for the guarantee of food. They seldom come out into the open and keep among the trees and bushes to stay hidden from predators. Places like the Everwood, Forest and Hills, Swamps, or jungles are common places where Kut-kus are found.
Victology:
Kut-kus are one of the most versatile wyverns in terms of their diet. Though they are largely insectivores, feasting on Konchus, bnahabras, and other Neopterons, they often will eat small rodents as well berries and ev

Story of Glyde's Past
*Story unlocked by WeirdSketch*
From what little I remember, it was a dark night this happened. All was quiet and peaceful and it seemed like a night like any other. I was awoken by a flashbug that had entered my room by chance. My parents were sleeping soundly when the the village emergency horn went off. As if my father was never asleep, he bolted awake and rushed to get his Battle Vest and his Guild Rapier and rushed to the door, "Stay inside the both of you, wait until you hear the all clear, and stay alert," and with that he disappeared into the night.
"What are you doing up?" My mother asked when she noticed I was up. It didn't take her long to notice I was chasing around the flashbug that had woke me up. I tried to follow the bug outside but my mom caught me in time before I made it out. She explained to me that it was dangerous to go outside and offered me something to drink instead. I asked for some cream. I followed her into the kitchen where she took out a bottle from

Cultural Curations: Lagomas
Overview: Lagomas is a traditional holiday occurring on the Full moon after the Winter Solstice almost exclusively where Lagombi are present in the immediate area, such as Pokke. During this time, little kids leave offering of nuts, fruits, and even insects in mounds of snow outside their homes on Lagomas Eve and if you were a good kid, Lagombi would come that night, take your offering and leave behind a present. If you were not a good kid, you would be left with a nice warm pile of dung. 
Etymology: Lagomas as a compound word coming from the phrase "Lagombi Mass" (Mass as in a large number). Though villager's rarely see Lagombi in large numbers at a time, kids believe that that night all the Lagombi in the world come out and do a mass visit to all the homes of the children of the world to leave presents (or dung). 
Locations: Lagomas is widely celebrated in places that receive a lot of snow, such as Pokke and even Yukumo. However, even places that receive seasonal snow will

For What It's Worth: A Lagomas Story
    'Twas the day before Lagomas and all throughout out Pokke, people were filled with cheer and festivities as people anticipated the once a year holiday tradition unique to this mountain village. The weapon shop had closed early as their family had come from Kokoto to celebrate and even the tailor closed to join the festivities held in the Guild Hall. Within, hunters, villagers, and travelers alike were having a good time, singing, drinking, and eating their fill. Without, the streets were quiet, save the whistling wind and falling snowflakes. 
    Among the wind and snow, a small body made its way through the streets, each step crunching the soft snow below, leaving a trail of small footprints behind him. The little boy made his way to a jewelry shop and looked up at the door, which held a sign that read "Closed". He looked at the sign for a few seconds before making his way in, the welcome bell ringing and a warm air brushing over his rosy cheeks. He q

Kingdom: Bestia (animal)
Class: Entomos (Insects)
Order: Cleoptra (Beetles)
Family: Volatilus (flying)
Genus: Lycherna (light)
Species: Fulgeo (flash)
Introduction: The Lycherna Fulgeo, or more commonly known as the Flashbug, is a very common insect found almost anywhere in the world. It's adaptability to climates, as well as it's practical uses, has made it one of the most well-known bugs among commoners and hunters alike.

Location: They're everywhere except underwater and in space. That is all. Now pay attention to the next part.
Properties:The flashbug's exoskeleton has a high concentration of a molecule similar in property to that of Silicon-oxygen tetrahedra1, which practically makes it a livi

Of Guns and Lances
     "A gunlance?"
     "yeh, I got a prototype frum a friend'a mine blacksmith frum Pokke. He wanted fer some hunters to try um out," he said looking up at the young hunter, "if you want you can take 'er for a spin."
     Zirion took a closer look at the weapon, examining every nook and cranny of both the spear and the shield that came with it. For all Zirion was concerned, the weapon looked like a giant cannon with a handle and blade attached on opposite ends.
     He wrapped his arm around handle and lifted it off the table. It was a bit heavier than Zirion was used to when he wielded spears but it wasn't anything he couldn't get used to. The shield, on the other hand was considerably smaller and a bit lighter than typical lance shields. Zirion awkwardly shifted his hands up and down trying to get the feel for holding the two parts before giggling at how awkward he might have looked to others.

Glyde's Fast Facts: Honey
Introduction: Honey is an edible semi-solid liquid created by Snakebees through a long process of regurgitation. Its unique chemical composition makes honey a very valuable commodity in food, medicine, or just for even everyday use.
Creation: Snakebees ingest natural sugar and, with the help of enzymes and digestive acids, hydrolyzes the sucrose to give the monosacccharides glucose and fructose. They then turn the saccharides into honey by regurgitating the processed sugar multiple times. After the final regurgitation, they store solution into a honeycomb and fan the solution dry with their wings to increase the sugar concentration.
Physical Properties: The viscosity, or the fluidity, of honey is affected by temperature and the water content. The higher the humidity, the lower the viscosity and vice versa. Honey is known to be a supercooled liquid, that is to say, it is a substance that stays as a liquid below it's freezing point. Even at very low temperatures it will not freeze and wi

Glyde's Fast Facts: Ivy
Kingdom: Herba
Order: Fiore
Family: Efeu
Genus: Lierre
Introduction: Ivy is a fairly common plant that grow in a wide range of environments. They can be found anywhere there is a moderate source of water. Their lightweight yet tough vines make them  a very useful tool for humans, wyvernians, and lynians alike. 
Appearance: Ivy vines are generally light green when they're young and transition to a darker green as they mature. Likewise, their leaves are bright green at first but become a dark green with a hint of blue as they mature. Their berries grow clumped at the end of stalks that turn a dark grey-ish hue.
Location: Ivy require very little water to grow and stay alive, as such they can grow just about anywhere there's water and suitable soil to grow in. They can be found commonly in the flooded forest, swamps, the islands and even near volcanic areas.
Properties: Ivy are considerably light for how tough they are; the spiderweb of plants, so to speak. Their toughness can be

Hello everyone, 

Just letting you all know that i'm not dead x3

As mentioned in a previous journal, I've been absorbed into a discord community run by 'Pocketwatch Games' (creators of Monaco) Their newest game Tooth and Tail is in developments.
If anyone is interested in joining the alpha community to play and help test the game or just chatting with friendly individuals (nyself included) you're more than welcome to join the Discord community at: discordapp.com/invite/pocketwa…;

If you've been itching to play an fast paced RTS that's easy to get into and fun to play with friends, come check it out! 

'Till next time,
Glyde


Questions you may have:
Q: Are you leaving Deviantart? 
A: No, and probably won't ever. It's one of the first online communities i've ever joined and therefore has a special place in my heart. Even though i may not be posting anything. I'm always checking to see whether I have messages or not daily. So if you ever want to contact me for whatever reason you may have, know that I'll likely respond within a day =3

Q: What about monster hunter stuff?
A: At the moment, Tooth and Tail takes up most of my creative energy. Most of the things i write these days is written in their universe, which is quite fascinating (Not to say the MH Universe isn't in the least). Will i continue to write monster hunter stuff? perhaps. Only time will tell. Monster Hunter remains to be the franchise i've pour the most amount of time into. And not to mention it's the universe in which Glyde originated from. I'd be hard pressed to abandon it when he's such an important part of myself.

Q: MHGD?
A: It's not dead yet. We actually talked recently about reviving the series, and wondering what the best way was to go about it. No details besides that, but it's being though about.

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask in the comments =p

I'll test it for you when it releases in Japan XD I can't wait >< Even if it is only two months away DX I don't know if the Felyne form is one of the new styles or if the styles can also apply to the Felyne form.

I still don't like that felyne. If they weren't invincible, I'd murder that thing as soon as I start the game and get one of those other normal felynes as my companion instead!
