This post is gonna be small, but as promised I am going to show you a made up representation of what the vanguard take in and spend. There are of course dozens of different sources of income for the vanguard, all lucrative and there are dozens of expenditures that the vanguard incur. The vanguard are a highly sophisticated race and they stay at the top of the food chain because they spend the money required to stay on top. They are heavy on research and they never back down from a fight so their army has a huge upkeep. Read More →
Hey guys, sorry for not posting anything. I’ve been busy trying to scrap some cash together for that contest I mentioned on the fan page. I will be posting an article either tomorrow or Thursday night. Also, the contest might be put off till I can raise the funds as I need five sponsors and I only have two. If you know someone or wish to sponsor an ad on the site, it is only $11! Ad details can be found HERE.
I will be officially writing the book in the next couple weeks. I will also be launching a kick starter campaign and I hope you guys help me out with it. Even if you can’t donate, simply sharing the campaign helps. My goal is to raise $1,500 so I can get concept art done, book cover design done, pay a couple server bills, but more importantly, getting art work for the story! The book need artwork and without artwork it will be hard to bring people in. I can describe something a bunch of different ways, but without a picture it is hard to picture what I am trying to create. Also, I am dying to have artwork done! So, help me out by sharing or donating or both! I appreciate the help and appreciate your patience with me.
I got to talking with my cousin and we were on the subject of the Romans (who I love! Awesome Empire in history) and he was talking about their myths. I never bothered to learn any except the most popular (which everyone should know), which is the myth on how Rome was founded and how its founders were raised by a she-wolf. So, that got me to thinking that I should do some articles on Vanguard myths, religion, and maybe even their holidays. So, to start off the list of articles I will be focusing on a myth that vanguard have of the afterlife. Enjoy! Read More →
Just wanted to say I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving and if you don’t celebrate that holiday, I hope you enjoy the holiday season anyways. Enjoy this week, be thankful for you what have, and if you are able, give to those who have nothing. Take care guys, and I have an article queued up for Friday so after you stuff your face and go into a coma for the rest of the day, you can wake up to an article on the vanguard. Maybe my next few articles should focus on vanguard holidays and myths? Well, stay tuned to see what I write!
Enjoy the holiday!
Here is a quick article on some of the terms you are likely to see throughout the series. Some will be made up and some will be from the original creation of the story. Enjoy the article and remember, please share the fan page and blog! Read More →
OK guys, we all know that planets that can support life are limited. There are tens of trillions of planets out there and we’ve only been able to find about 5k to 10k habitable worlds, and the majority of those can only support a small amount of people so the need for good planets is in demand. The vanguard like in every situation they are put in found a way to overcome this problem. Vanguard use a terraformer to make planets habitable and help planets that are grow more to support more life. Enjoy the article! Read More →
Hey guys, I decided to write an article on what the vanguard pay scale is like. I’ve always been interested in what soldiers make in stories. Some of the stories I’ve read or seen has some fierce fighting and loyal soldiers so I always wondered if they were paid well for their loyalty. Now, the pay scale I am going to show you is not something I just added to the background for the story. I’ve always had these figures in my head and sometimes used them to help make the story better in my head. All statistics will be in USD as I don’t have a currency name or symbol for the vanguard yet. Make sure you check the bottom as it will include important information on the vanguard economy. But, I hope you enjoy and even get envious of their pay Read More →
Here is a bio for a naval unit the vanguard empl0ys. These ships are not widely used as the ships that are in space do all the work. You will only find these ships on specialized planets like the Vanguard capital homeworld. These ships are used to slow the enemy advancement on the ground. If the enemy takes a piece of land and wishes to take more they might have to cross the ocean to do it. But if these ships are in the water, if gives vanguard forces on the other side to prepare better. These ships are designed to slow down the enemy or halt their advance completely. Enjoy! Read More →
