In a world where everything was changed by a comet and factions are warring against each other, you are dropped into the middle of it with nothing but the clothes on your back. Your own people, the Albs of Xacor, shot you down and left you for dead. To add insult to injury, someone has robbed you of your armor and weapons and left you with nothing but some clothing. You have to find the thief and survive in a part of the world that you don’t even know. You are Jax, an outcast and somehow you must survive.

There have been many writings about this subject but never, that I can think of, written about like it will be here. Here we will explore just what is the bride of Christ and what it means to those, or rather the haters that call themselves Christian. We will also look at just what the word Christian means, not what people just say it is.
What is the Bride Of Christ?
In the new testament Christ is referred to many times as the groom or bridegroom with the Church being referred to as his bride. Also in the old testament there are many references to God’s people being the bride of the divine. I wonder if all the religious haters out there have even read the books that they claim to hold so dear. If they did, maybe they would not be so judgmental about everyone else and would mind their own business and look to themselves before judging others. (To all those Englishcrats out there, its a long drawn out sentence for a very good damned reason) With all these references to the divine being the groom and the church or gods people being the bride you would think that the hypocritical Christocrats would be more understanding and giving. If only that were so, there would not be so many problems in this world.
You are the successor to your father in a Viking village and you must fix the problems that your father created when he went looking for treasures on the British Isles. Every action that you do and every conversation that you have will determine if you have a successful rule or not. It will also have bearing on how your subjects feel about you and your ability to be able to have others follow you as you try and save your lands from a blood thirsty chieftain who has his sights on your lands.
This is one game that you just might find yourself wondering where the time went. This is not like your usual titles where everything is in 3D but you really wont care as the story draws you in as you are conversing with your subject one moment and then fighting the next in this turned base strategy RPG based on the Vikings and Norse history and mythology.
The following is from a very VERY old site I used to have, Celtic Voice, not up anymore. It shows 2 of my recipes for the alcoholic beverage known as mead, or honey wine. I am sure those in the SCA will remember some of this.

First, let me apologize for the site being bonkward for the past few days. During a site update the database was misplaced and we had to go hunt for it. Was a odd journey, but everything is now up and running.
Remember folks, Twitter can be your friend at the oddest of times. This time it saved my but and the site as well.
Hope you all continue to enjoy the site. Even though I have not posted much of late, I do maintain all of the site and create all the graphics and make most of the screen shots that you have enjoyed over the years.
This will fe a Samhain to remember, Halloween for all those that are not history buffs.
