Hi, My name is Daniel Ward Tyndall; every one just calls me Ward. I am 22 years old physical-wise (828 years old metaphysical-wise.). I am a student at Randolph Community College in Asheboro , NC.

And above all else, I love the strange, cherish the weird, and worship the bizarre.
THINGS I LOVE:Books, Speculative Fiction of all kinds, Doctor Who (Old & New) , Torchwood, Primeval, Most British Sitcoms aired within the past forty years, Classic TV (From the classy to the campy), Classic Comedy Movies, Anything that is considered strange and weird, and above all else: FREEDOM and TRUTH; because they are power at its purist form.
THINGS I HATE:People who criticize and discriminate, Fascists, Racists, Sexists, Those who steal others ideas, Ignorance, The Mighty Status-Quo, Authority, Sheep-Puppet-Automatons, Those who hide the Truth from the People and above all else, all the Nazis, Sheppards, Puppeteers, and Pricks in the World.

WORLDS OF MY CREATION:
A Weird Fiction World inspired by China Mieville's Bas-Lag, but with my own ideas, of course. It has Majiks used by half-crazed Witches and Warlocks; faceless Oracles; a demonic group of assassins called The Scythe (Inspired by the Cenobites of Clive Barker's Hellraiser); and a race of mutated humans and mix-matched creatures I proudly call UnHumans. There are two goverments in conflict: One is called The Feudal Syndication of City-States; where each City-State is ruled by a noble with a title that's given by succession that was created when the FSCS first began(The NeoDisian Hierarch; The Tsar of Bone and Flesh; The Alpha-Lord; The Countess of the Tomes; ETC.). The other is called The Eldrichian Regime; which is a cross between Nazi Germany and Communist Russia with some Lovecraftian elements thrown in. The technology and architecture is kind of mix-matched; it's got Steampunk, Diseilpunk, Art Deco, Modern, some Futuristic, and just a little bit of Medevial simultaneously co-existing.
The City-States are really spectacular and unique in an equal way. Let me give you some examples: First, there's NeoDis; the Capitol City-State and the setting to my novel, Running with the Engineer. Then, we have Biblique; this City-State is, in itself, a gigantic library. Next, we have Great Mengarie; the only City-State that has both a majority of UnHunmans, and ruled by a UnHuman Noble. Finally, we have my personal favorite, Osteopolis; which is a living city made of bone, steel, glass, and flesh. It's the closest City-State to the Front-Lines.
Even the afterlife is different from our own; it's called The Ten-Thousand Heavens and Hells. Each plane is reserved for those that deserve to be put there; depending on how good or how evil they've been. And it's ruled by a group of Divinities called The Celestial Board of Governors. Also, science works side by side with magic. Only magic is known as Majiks; it can only be used by Witches and Warlocks. There's a whole Guild of them that use Majiks to help those in need of their services, but there are Freelancers for those who can't afford to go the Guild. You see, the Witchcraft Guild only helps those who 'contribute' wealth for their administration, if you catch my meaning.
