Hey, but you want nude pics of Ciri... well, have fun jerking your penis off to her while you can, because she's got a sword just waiting to slice your dick off.
If you want to continue to jerk off to Ciri, then make sure you NEVER read the novels... run... run far, far away from the novels and the REAL Ciri the game never told you about: the penis chopping, testicle mutilating psycho whore.
I continue to be amazed by how many men fantasize over women who are famous for cutting off penises. Damn. I'll never understand why you men like Ciri so much. But hey, you want to fantasize over penis mutilating women, I'm sure there are hundreds of real world women who would be more then happy to line up to castrate you.
Me personally, I hate rapists, sexual abusers, abortion bitches, spouse abusers, senior abusers, and terrorists... and Ciri is ALL OF THE ABOVE. But you keep on lusting after the baby murdering, spouse abusing, senior citizen raping, penis chopping, testical mutilating, shit bitch of a slutty assed whore... while you're at it, why do you go lust after Alex from Clock Work Orange? His crimes are nearly as horrific, brutal, or violent as Ciri's though, so he probably ain't enough of an abuser for you to like him.
So while you get off fantasizing over Ciri chopping your dick off, I'll continue to hate Ciri and all the psycho-feminist, social-justice-terrorism she stands for and is the poster child of. Sorry but, I like Avallac'h too much to share your love for the bitch who castrated him.
Why do I hate Ciri?
1: Ciri is a rapist.
2: Ciri is an abortion bitch.
3: Ciri is a sex crazed pervert.
4: Ciri is a drunk.
5: Ciri is a cocaine addict.
6: Ciri has a bloodlust. She is addicted to killing anything, everything, and every one that moves.
7: Ciri is a slutty assed whore who spends 90% of her time in the novels masterbating for the reader, demanding sex from every one, and raping elderly men.
8: Ciri says children, especially babies are parasites, and should all be killed.
9: One of Ciri's favorite pastimes is stabbing pregnant women in the belly. to "rescue them from the parasites that will destroy their lives."
In short, Ciri is a vile, immoral piece of shit.
HAVE YOU NEVER LISTENED TO A WORD I HAVE EVER SAID IN MY STREAMS?
Hell! We do more preaching Bible verses here then anything else. We even use Ciri as the prime example of the most vile, most immoral, most debauched, gutter scum piece of filth sinner we could find and compare Bible verses to her life as sermons and lessons of what type of piece of shit NOT TO BE!
Why do you think I hate that immoral, sex-crazed, perverted, crackhead, drunk, child murdering, rapist, gutter scum piece of trash, bitch Ciri so much?
Who in their right mind wouldn't hate her?
The bigger question here is, why do YOU like a deviated, immoral piece of trash like that?
<<<---- 24 MILLION people consider this vile drug addicted, drunk, spouse abusing, child murdering, rapist who was modeled after The Lady of the Lake/Satan to be "The #1 female little girls should look up to and strive to be like".
While 21 MILLION people consider this moral, just, kind man who was modeled after The Fisher King/Christ Jesus himself, to be the most vile, terrible, evil villain of any villain ever created. --->>>
It says a lot about the society we live in when evil acts are hailed as good and good acts are hailed as bad.
Tell me how.... how do you sick, perverted jackasses look at Ciri and see ANYTHING but disgust and revulsion?
Why do I like Avallac'h?
You mean other then the fact that he was brutally raped and left crippled in a manner near identical to what happened to me?
1: Avallac'h is asexual, a virgin, lives a celibate life, and shuns sex.
2: Avallac'h is a vegan, animal rights, human rights, monster rights activist.
3: Avallac'h is doesn't drink alcohol.
4: Avallac'h has morals and strives to live a pious, righteous, holy life free from sin.
8: Avallac'h is a quiet, peaceful, kind, gentle, loving, docile man who spends his life doing nothing but fishing off his boat.
9: Animals and monsters do not fear Avallac'h because he has never shed innocent blood, never taken an innocent life, he has never murdered anyone.
10: Avallac'h is The Fisher King, holiest of the Grail Knights... The Maimed King... literally Jesus the Christ Fisher of Men; the ultimate moral person.
Do you really know NOTHING about King Arthur Myhos or the fact that The Fisher King and the 12 Grail Knights are Jesus and his 12 disciples?
Who wouldn't love Avallac'h knowing that?
I was raped, crippled, my legs, hips, knees, and spine broken, I was pregnant at the time, my died and I haven't been able to walk for 6 years. You can't even begin to imagine how much I hate the thought of sex, I have post traumatic stress disorder and sex, any mention of it, triggers it. I'm asexual, I have Kanner's Syndrome (actual Autism), I'm a 5th generation Mormon, and I'm an ordained minister.
I like Avallac'h because he's asexual, a virgin, and lives a celibate life. His wife died while she 8 months pregnant with another man's baby. I empathize with him, because just like me, he was beaten, raped, and crippled for the rest of his life. His entire story takes place on a lake, beside his wife's grave, where he does nothing but ride his around the lake, fish off a rowboat, and wander the fields picking flowers for his wife's grave.
And after he's raped, his legs broken, and the tomb of his wife smashed and destroyed, he never again leaves the boat, never speaks again, and never walks again.
Do you know the full extent of what happened to him? How bad it really was? How big of a piece of shit Ciri really is?
He was raped 5 times total. He tried to run away each time, but he's elderly, and had a lame leg, and was easily tackled by the sex crazed shit bitch that is Ciri. Because he kept running away, she broke both of his legs, then raped him again. Then, to punish him for refusing to have sex with her, she drove a sword through his hip, through his testicles, and out his other thigh. He was never able to walk again.
And all this, happened after he had already been tortured, locked in a cage, his blood drained, his family tortured to death in front of him: his parents, his siblings, his wife, his adopted baby, and his cats.... who when they were dead, were chopped up and force fed to him.
And WHY did she do all this? She was angry, that he was an asexual virgin and was refusing to have sex with her on command. She, 12 year old Queen of Cintra, who was used to demanding men to have sex with her and was horrified to encounter a righteous, just, decent, moral holy man who dared stand his ground and NOT obey the vile, perverted, debauched bitch's sex crazed demands.
I was raped, crippled, my legs, hips, knees, and spine broken, I was pregnant at the time, my baby, died and I haven't been able to walk for 6 years. I play as Avallac'h in the game, because I can make him walk again... something I can't do for myself...and THINGY KNEW THAT! I told her that August 2018. The game is only thing that keeps me from killing myself. You don't know what it;s like. I use to aqua jog 13 miles a day, go mountain climbing, horseback riding... and after 6 miscarriages, I finally had a pregnancy that was almost full term and a chance of finally having a baby.
I was raped November 14, 2013
I was beaten with a metal baseball bat, breaking my spine, hip, and knees November 14, 2013
I was pregnant and the baby died November 14, 2013
the injuries left me unable to have another baby
I was paralyzed for 5 months
I was in a wheelchair and doctors said I would never walk again
I spent 18 months stubbornly teaching myself to walk again
I have severe post traumatic stress disorder caused by having been brutally raped
my internal organs are messed up so bad that surgery can not fix it, I have no control of bodily functions, and have spent most of my life having to wear adult diapers because I have no clue when I have to pee or defecate... to avoid accidents I have to keep a timer on, and use the bathroom every 2 hours when the timer goes off.... something you see every day throughout my daily 12 hour streams
among other things, my hip, knee, and spine was broken with a baseball bat, resulting in I spent 5 month paralyzed and 18 months relearning to walk... and you see me streaming from bed because I have been crippled the rest of my life.... today I am no longer in a wheelchair and can walk for limited distances with a cane, but I will never again run, dance, or mountain climb
The attack happened at quarter past 10PM at the BugLight Lighthouse parking lot beside the art department studio of Southern Maine Community College. I was putting an easel in the back of my car, bent over the back seat, and did not see them come up to the car; they carried a metal baseball bat and a golf club, which they used to beat me in the back with, while I was still leaned into the car.
The attack was done by 3 people, a man and 2 women. The man was bald, around 6'4" and in his 30s, the 2 women were in their 60s and appeared to be the man's mother and aunt; the "mother" had distinctive dyed hair, shoulder length, pageboy cut, of platinum blond and dark brown stripes about 4 inches wide, EXTREMELY 1980s space girl fake hair dye; the other woman had long natural-orange-red curly hair, lime green glasses with a very distinctive narrow "x-men cyclops style" shape, she was screaming "I'm Kendra Silvermander, It's my turn to shine"... the 3 of them drove away together in a 4-door white pick-up truck with a silver tool box across the back and large oversized mountain bike tread tires.
And do you REALLY need to be reminded about the cats... you know, the 10 kidnapped cats whose heads were nailed to my door!
The murderer has not yet been identified. If you have any information, FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the investigation. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322
I like Avallac'h because he's asexual, a virgin, and lives a celibate life. I empathize with him, because just like me, he was beaten, raped, and crippled for the rest of his life. He's one of the 12 Holy Grail Knights of King Arthur's Round Table.
My playing as Avallac'h has nothing to do with sex and I'm tired of you vile jackasses trying to make it out to be.
I play as Avallac'h in the game, because I can make him walk again and I can give him his cats back... something I can't do for myself.
Answer me this:
How can you glorify a rapist?
I'm thinking you are so vile, so perverted, so immoral, so evil... that THAT is why you are so in love with Ciri and have a hard time understanding why I don't join you in making fun of a moral, righteous man while glorifying the vile perversion that is Ciri. You are just plain THAT EVIL, that you can't see past your own debauched, vile life of sin to understand what it is like to be utterly disgusted and abhorred by repulsive evil things like yourself.
The stream is live EVERY DAY usually from late evening through night and into early morning (EST).
Streams last 4 to 12 hours depending on how much free time I have that day.
Start time is not specific as my offline work schedule changes daily and is not consistent from one week to the next. Some days I start around 6PM other days I don't start til midnight or as late as 3AM. Usually you can find me on til 7AM, regardless of what time I start.
If I miss a day (which is rare, but does happen) it's because my health is worse then normal that day. If I'm able to sit up, but the tremors in my hands are to a point I can not hold the controller, I'll vlog instead of gaming. But if I'm too weak to sit up, I won't vlog that day either. There are simply days when I am too weak to push myself up in bed and I don't have anyone to help me sit up, so I can not record those days. Sorry.

Now that we've reached 10,000 pages, it has become necessary to create a new method of indexing the pages, seeing how it's not possible to link 10,000 pages from the navabar... heck, I had trouble just linking the top 100 pages in the navabar! LOL!
Since moving to this new url in 2013, I've been linking the top 100 most visited pages in the navabar and then linking to everything else from them. As of October 15, 2017, that system is being replaced with this one, which, hopefully will make it easier for you to navigate around this massive site.
So, now I'm creating topic pages, which will contain this links to the pages, and I'll just link to the topic pages in the navabar instead. Hopefully this system of indexing the pages will make it easier for you to find the pages you are looking for.
This page's topic is...
Fantasy World Building...
Writing Fantasy Books | World Building For Authors | The Zaharam-Chapelle-Parunas Ethnographical Questionnaire
If you have never seen it before, you must go look at it immediately. It's wonderful.
I found it while searching for brainstorming ideas for world building. Every world builder should have access to this list. Every world builder should take this list and answer every single question about their world and see how well it is they really know the world which they have created.
This list is absolutely, positively amazing. I am so glad I found it. I mean, you know how much I love world building and answering questions and this is both of those activities rolled into one! Could anything be more perfect?
What the page is, basically is a massive set of questions to ask you characters about the world they live in. Cool. I figured it'd be a great exercise to use this against Quaraun world and see what we know about the world he lives in.
As there are too many questions to answer them all on one page and so many questions that it'll probably take me a few weeks at least to get around to answering them all, I'm making this page to index the questions, and as I answer them, I'll turn each of the questions into a link to the page where I answered it.
Who knows how long it'll take me to fill up this list and turn them all into links! LOL!
If you are building a world of your own, why not take these questions and answering them on your own site about your own world?
Need a place to share your pages with other authors? I got a FB Group just for that. Go ahead and join and post links to your books, author blogs, reddit posts, whatever else author related you have to share with us!

Just look at how many questions there are on this thing! A few hundred! Wow! I don't know where to start.
But you know what? With as many questions as came with that list, I think, there still ain't enough and I'm just gonna go ahead and add me some more.
The original questions are in the list format under each section title header. At the bottom of each section I've added a little double row grid box. Those are the extra questions I've added to this list.
In all, with the original questions and the extra additional questions I added to it, there are more than 1,000 questions on this page.
1,000 questions about world building.
1,000 questions to help you build your fantasy realm for your novel.
1,000+ questions on creating a fictional society that is as realistic lifelike and as diverse as the real world, to increase your readers' perception of the level of reality within your fictional world.
What you are looking at it the ultimate questionaire to help you build the ultimate planet for your fictional characters to live on.
Now, the list, as it is, is a list of questions, for you to answer about your own world. The questions which are active links to other pages, are my own answers to the questions. As I answer each question, I'll turn it into a link to the page where I answered the question, if you are interested in seeing how I answered them for Quaraun's world.

However, if God was truly omniscient (all-knowing), would he not have already known the measure of Abraham's faith? And wouldn't this edict have been traumatizing and cruel for both the parent and the child?
If God commanded you, as he did to Abraham in Genesis 22, to take one of your children and kill him/her upon an altar as a demonstration of your faith and obedience, would you do it? Can you explain what you might do in that situation?

As there are now more then 100 articles for this series, it now has it's own index page on which to list them all, as there are just too many to keep adding them to this end of article list. You can find the complete listing of all the World Building articles here now:
*UPDATE: ADDED November 7, 2013 -
I suppose one thing I should point out at this point, before we go any
farther, is my use of the word fantasy throughout this series. The bulk
of this set of articles was written 7 years ago in April of 2006, parts of it appearing on EK's Star Log and other parts of it appearing on my personal Squidoo account. In the 7 years since writing this I've received hundreds of emails regarding it. A common question asked being: "Why do you talk of building a fantasy world if you don't write Fantasy?"
ANSWER: Fantasy with a capital "F" is the name of a type of fiction, in other words Fantasy is a genre. I do not write Fantasy fiction of the Fantasy genre, that is correct. I do however create fantasy realms for my Science Fiction and Horror works. I write Dark Fantasy, which is a sub-genre of Horror and Space Fantasy which is a sub-genre of Science Fiction.
Did you see it? No? Let me point it out: I write about fantasy worls as the exist in Horror and Sci-Fi but I do not write about fantasy world as they exist in Fantasy Fiction.
If it is not real it is fiction, if it exists only in fiction it it fantastical, if it is fantastical it is a fantasy item, because it is not a real item, however being fantastical does not make it part of the Fantasy genre, just as not everything in the Fantasy genre is always fantastical in nature.
The word "fantasy" with a lower case "f" is a word that means "not real" and has nothing to do with the Fantasy genre (capital "F") at all. And therefore when I say "fantasy realm" I mean a world that is NOT the Earth on which you and I live on in the real world, and am in no way, shape, or form referring to the Fantasy genre.
The methods I use to create my fantasy realms can be applied to ANY genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Romance, Western, etc.
2013 World-Building Series UPDATE:
Due to issues with content scraping, outright plagiarism, some of my articles appearing on OTHER Squidoo member accounts without my permission, and many of my "Squidoo articles" being stolen off Squidoo and posted without my permission on various blogs and sites including Wikipedia and Helium; all of my articles are in the process of being removed from Squidoo.
This series of World Building articles in one that has been heavily plagiarized over the years and as of September 2013, it can only OFFICIALLY be found here on EelKat.com - if you find it posted elsewhere, know it was stolen and I am not receiving royalties for it.
As you know, or not, Squidoo owners Bonnie and Kimberly-Dawn stole thousands of Squidoo articles from Squidoo members, and tried to pass them off as their own, resulting in the lawsuit against Squidoo owners for the theft of tens of thousands of articles.
More than 100 of my articles were transferred off my Squidoo account and moved to Bonnie's account,
I am shocked and flabbergasted at what these 2 women have done. That they thought they could get away with stealing so many articles from so many authors! Buying Squidoo from Seth Godin, did not give then the rights to our articles and these two horrible women had no right to delete them off of our member accounts and republish them on their own accounts, trying to pass them off as their own.
More then 100 Squidoo authors have gathered together in lawsuit against Squidoo owners, Bonnie and Kimberly-Dawn. The result of that is, Bonnie and Kimberly-Dawn, to avoid their asses being sued to hell and back, have now transferred the Squidoo lenses back to their original owners and deleted the entire Squidoo website.
Squidoo is officially gone. It exists no more. Squidoo is dead. Most Squidoo writers have opted to move to Hub Pages as HubPages has bought the remaining shambles of what is left of Seth Godin's Squidoo after Bonnie and Kimberly-Dawn massaquered it in their article stealing frenzy.
While I do have a HubPages account and my remaining Squidoo Lenses can be found there temporarily, they are being moved here and deleted off HubPages as I move them
April 2017 UPDATE:
As of now, all on my 600+ Squidoo pages are now moved here to EelKat.com and no more are remaining on HubPages.
I am wondering why has Amazon moved the Quaraun books to the category "Transgender Romance" and also "Gay Erotica"? The base story is a deeply depressed, suicidal, drug addict Elf who's lover commit suicide and he's trying not to do the same. It's an old Elf in a tavern, monologuing a lot of flashbacks and back story scenes of his youth. These stories are dark, bloody, angsty, full of drug use, murder, rape, Medieval torture, mental/physical/emotional abuse, and references to depression and suicide - no romance in it, unless you count the occasional (and usually brutally violent) rape scenes that show up in nearly every volume - sorry - no clue what Amazon is thinking or why they moved these to Romance and Erotica, but these books are NOT even close to being Romance or Erotica on any level at all. When I published these books I put them in "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi". If they show up in any category other then "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi", it's because Amazon put them there without my authorization or approval.
The 4 door white truck continues to sit at the end of my drive way (146 Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine) near every night around sunset, reeving it's engine and squealing it's tires, with the driver yelling anti-gay threats and obscenities out the window. He continues to do the same thing at my dad's apartment building (Biddeford Maine) a few times a week, usually in mid to late afternoon time. He continues to follow me to shopping to various stores in various towns throughout the states.
Phrases he yells from the truck include:
"Kill or be killed remember Saco Shaws all transsexuals are alike"
"I keep a gun under the seat of my truck, I'm gonna use it to shoot you in the head, you transvestite freak"
if cars are going by he yells to them: "that thing is Ken's son, look at how's it's dressed; it's insane, it has autism, we can't allow that thing and it's gay cars in our family friend town of Old Orchard Beach"
He often babbles deranged ramblings about something he calls "the gay-pocalypse", raving lunacy about how "all the gays are gathering" on his doorstep. He raves some crazy nonsense about how Armageddon is coming and the war to end all wars will be "the gays against the Christians" and Christians have to be ready to "kill the gays"
My car is the Autism Awareness Car and had 2.5million marbles glued to it (I have Autism - savant - Kanner's syndrome) he claims tat my car "is gay" because of what it looks like. My car has been vandalized several dozen times, including to have the tires slashed 7 times in 6 months.
After dark often around 10PM, he stands at the end of the logging road across the street from me and shoots at my motohome (in February 2014 he shot holes in my neighbour's barn while doing this). I have video footage of 3 of his shootings at me here: https://youtu.be/NUebzJ9sz9U and here: https://youtu.be/C4dZbgG-Smw
This has gone on since August 2013 now, in addition to all the vandalism, hate crimes, pet beheadings, etc that has happened, including the bomb that blew up our house in 2006.
As you know, that whole time I had not been able to get a plate number on the truck. He as just here again, and I just realized why I could not get a plate number... there are no plates on the truck, either on the front or on the back. However, as he was driving away today... I noticed, there is a plate, stuck up in the back window of the truck, where it can barely be seen, deliberately obscured from view behind a silver tool box.
