Biology class today was totally over my head... Gotta memorize the names of a bunch of amino acids and if they're polar or nonpolar and their relating charges (acidic, basic) this week. >.< I'm sure it'll make perfect sense eventually but I think I need to go home and study for a lifetime first! :P
Beer leader slides a 6 pack of beer leader caffeinated lager across the bar. Little early in the semester for this but an imaginary has to do what an imaginary friend has to do.
Thank youu<3 *slurp slurp*
Fortunately no! I think maybe I'll try to make a poster of them with their structure included anyway though, just to like go the extra distance and get information about them firmly stuck in my skull. Thanks for the list! :)

The History of Loftegen 2
In the year 997 CE, the Pindarean Empire was crumbling. In a desperate effort to stabilize, and thus save, the heart of his empire, Emperor Teleftaíos XIV asked a favor of the woman called Mara Anzjana. A mighty sorceress, she marched with Teleftaíos' armies and single handedly turned the tide of a dozen major battles. His enemies within and without crushed, Teleftaíos expressed his gratitude to Mara Anzjana by offering her all of the provinces south of the Iron Mountains to rule as her own, a gift she accepted. Or so the history books tell. There are legends that say the southern provinces were her price, rather than a gift, and that Teleftaíos was none too happy to pay it. Only one person knows the truth, and she refuses to speak of it.
It was the spring of 998 CE when Mara Anzjana arrived in Altenburg, capital of the eponymous Duchy. She did not arrive at the head of an army. She had no courtiers, and no servants. She walked alone into the Great Hall of Castle Altenberg, where Duke Orsino III was holding his spring audiences with his vassals. Mara Anzjana announced who she was, and asked if the Duke had received word of Emperor Teleftaíos' gift to her. The Duke replied that he had, and further stated that the emperor could pursue marital relations with a donkey, and that he would not bend his knee to any woman.
Mara Anzjana ordered Orsino to vacate his throne, informing him that he was no longer the Duke of anything, whereupon Orsino invited Mara Anzjana to pursue marital relations with a horse. Mara Anzjana frowned thoughtfully, then pointed at Orsino. His body exploded in a blast of blood, gore, shattered bone, and shredded flesh. Before the stunned assembly, Mara Anzjana took that horror drenched seat and said, "I am Mara Anzjana, Empress of the Land of the Seven Suns. Does anyone here dare defy me?"
None answered her, but all sank to their knees and bowed before her.
The History of Loftegen 2
The First Great Reform
As grand a sounding name as 'Empire of the Seven Suns' was, a unified county it was not. The region was a mess of petty kingdoms, principalities, duchies, thanedoms, and other such entities. There were scores, if not hundreds, of ethnic groups, religions, languages, and dialects.
On Midsummer's Day, 998 CE, Empress Mara Anzjana issued a decree establishing an official, empire-wide language for the conduct of government business. Rather than choosing from among the existing languages of her realm, she selected her own personal language, to the consternation of all. She also expressly declared that purely local affairs could continue to be conducted in the local language, which puzzled many.
Not long after, she was forced to deal with a rebellion. The Thane of Eisenburg, who had been present in the Great Hall just months earlier, decided to break away from Imperial rule. This time Mara Anzjana did take an army with her. With a few thousand men she met the Thane's army in the field south of Eisenburg. The Empress's army was outnumbered five to one, and many thousands of the Thane's subjects had come to watch him destroy his foe.
Bidding her troops stand fast, the Empress went forward alone, toward the Thane's banner.
"Edward Ironblade," she is said to have called out. "Here I stand. Strike me down if you can."
The Thane rode out, his armor shining in the sun, his lance long and keen. "I do not fear you, witch, for the gods of the Iron Mountain are with me, and have sent me portents of your downfall."
"Then why do you wait, Edward?" the Empress answered, spreading her arms. "Come and do the bidding of your gods."
Enraged, the Thane set spurs to his horse, leveled his lance, and charged.
The Empress met the tip of the lance with an upraised bare hand. As it struck home the lance and its wielder dissolved in a shower of glowing cinders. The Thane's steed thundered past, before drawing up, befuddled by the sudden disappearance of its rider.
Mara Anzjana then addressed the late Thane's army. "Who's next?"
Eisenburg submitted without a fight.
