Hello, My name is Prominent Penguin.
I'm your average
19 20 year old college student,
who actually kinda blows at the writing aspect.
So in desperation, I'm hoping that I can somehow
compensate by rating other stories....
Todo List (in order of relative difficulty):
-Get shit-talked by Steve
-Get shit-talked by Mizal
-Get shit-talked by Endmaster
-Get better at shit-talking
-Submit a story that sucks
-Learn the advanced editor
-Submit a story that is actually half-decent

True, I forgot that was a trope they had. Unless I'm willing to afford sun umbrellas for an entire regiment, perhaps they would fit much better as a form of "secret police" or be strictly limited to inside areas.

Gargoyles. They are almost always seen as tough guard dogs and can hide pretty well in almost any man made environment, given their stoneskin. Also the fact that most can fly, would made flanking enemy positions a breeze during actual combat. In some fantasy depicts them as servants to a highly skilled mage or vampire, and they are usually reserved as semi-bosses or a tough fight. Only problem is that they aren't quite as numerous as some of the other races. They are also known to be somewhat immune to magic which would make dealing with magic enemies easier.

I'm aware of why they added it. But it doesn't even really fit in with the whole "historic weapons" theme, they had going on (I mean, who the hell wants to have a frying pan when your lesbian friends get swords and your queer friends get Spears). Seems like the pansexuals get the short end of the stick.
Could've done better

Why the hell is there an iron pan?
Explain Maturity Ratings

Pretty sure he said "You should be fine".
But if you wanted a longer answer. I mean, yea, the maturity rating is largely instinct-based but generally as long as your not goring children in your basement (Which is probably a straight 7 on the maturity scale), you can usually put the rating where you think it would go and no-one will complain. If you have general killings and stuff it'd probs fall in the 4-6 rating or If all your going to write is just a couple razor-blades and drug dealing. I think 4 or 5 is a decent number. As long as its not in the 8th rating, the 8th rating is reserved for as a basis that you can't reach.
Endmaster made an entire article on "mature" stories. All you do is go on the help & info page on the left, then scroll down the page to the storywriting section, then click on Endmaster's Map to (Im)Mature Story Writing.
Hope this helps!

Lol, it said they were going to hire a witch hunter...I wonder how you get into the "witch hunter" business to begin with.

Wow. Edgy title. "check". Anime-based. "check". Jesus, even the Power-Point splash art looks like something a pedophile would use to lure kids to. Sure he's no Kiel, but I can't say he doesn't know how to screw children.

Little bit of old news but whatever. Humanity loses more information of its past due to information entropy despite active preservation,
basically a museum burned down.
The museum's entire Egypt section pretty much burned down. This includes the 5 mummified corpses they had stored there. Many other artefacts were burned away. It is the oldest museum in the country and now its gone along with around 90% of the artefacts it was stored in. They also had no digital backups of the artefacts and the information pertaining to it (don't really know why they didn't tbh, seems like in this day and age having backups is a requirement to get anything done).
Egypt is slightly pissed at this loss of its own cultural heritage and the Egypt Consulate in Brazil has been sent to see exactly what the damage to these artefacts are. Anyway, chances are that now if you want to know more about the Egyptian artefacts collected by Brazilian Emperor Pedro I, your gonna have to ask the Egyptologists who saw and studied them before the museum burned down. Lets hope this is last of humanities past that has to be lost to time immemorial :)
