A Poem by Isaac Thomas Riley
---
Lamp of Liberty, shines!
Peace be with you, who wants hope!
Lamp of Liberty, Shines!
Those who seek, shall have!
Lamp of Liberty, Shines for all, who live in tranquility!
Him who leads, is like the lamp!
She who leads, is the light!
Lamp of Liberty, shines!
Love and peace, burn in us all!
Lamp of Liberty, shines!
Those who seek, shall have!
Hope and peace is the leader we seek!
Peace and love, is our path!
Lamp of liberty, shines for all, who live in tranquility!
Him who leads, is like the lamp.
She who leads is the light!
Lamp of Liberty, shines!
Love and peace, burn in us all!

Those who seek, shall have!

We are Soldiers
A Poem by Isaac Thomas Riley.
Translated into English, from Migamjiolqua.
we were soldiers once.
heroes, running into the dark, reaching a hand to bring back hope.
we were heroes, once.
slaves to the system of oppression we sought to stamp out.
in bondage to machine minds and hearts.
we were regimented and dieted, sent into the dying light like cattle, ready for the sacrifice.
we were soldiers once.
and we laughed at the idea of freedom, the lonely aspiration of which we defended for others.
to defend their freedom is our sacrifice, when we should be living.
alongside those who we seek to defend.
yes, we were soldiers once.
and we still are.
defenders of the hopeless many, heroes to the warriors who look up at us.
we do not always carry weapons of war.
nor do we always do combat in fields of battle.
but make no mistake:
we are all soldiers.
reaching out a hand, for the hope that we all desire, and bringing back nothing.
brave men will fight and die, and still braver men will come.

Flight
Once you've taken flight,
You will dare like no other,
To dream of nothing more than flight!
When the world shouts, the wind carries you.
And you will be swift, like the eagle in flight.
So spread your wings, and dream of flight!
Imagine the mountains and bays,
The clouds above and the great waters.
All beneath you, all means of wonder.
So spread your wings, and dream of flight!
The flock you lead will carry you to victory.
The path you take will bring new ports.
And yet, will take you home.
So spread your wings, and dream of flight!
Think of all the things you see.
And imagine the things that can be seen.
Bring home new wonders, and passions.
So spread your wings, and dream of flight!
It is not a worth your time.
To plant your feet on land.
Or Bring low the seas of change.
When you have never taken flight.
It is not worth your time to dream of far off ports.
Nor battle far flung foes.
Or bring home trophies of war and peace.
When you've never tasted flight.
It is sweet to fly above th

ICS Galactic Empire Form
Interstellar Covenanted States of Planet Keosteyon
DATE OF FOUNDING: 5800, December 3rd
MAJORITY SPECIES:  Human (Quoltlani (Bronze-skinned))
SIGNIFICANT RACES: Although the majority species is Human, the significant races in this empire are as follows:
10% Saokan (Brown-skinned natives of the Migami Landmass.)
30% Quoltlani (Think European of Mediterranean descent.)
25% Segonite (Think European of Anglo descent.)
20% Bezoti (Sub-Saokan, black-skinned natives to the same landmass as Saoka.)
15% Hodhui (Sub-Saokan, mixed race natives to the same landmass as Saoka and Quoltlan.)
CULTURE: Covenanted culture is essentially a democratic, open society. They still have racial divisions from centuries past, and the animosity at times breaks between the Quoltlani and Segonite; and the Bezoti and Saokan peoples. The  twelve super powers within the Covenanted structure of government, unite every Saturday, on December 3rd, to elect the Executive Gene

Religion:
Freedom of religion is tantamount to the modern Greater Bay Republic, as it is now more of a country of immigrants, despite the large and looming presence of the native tribes.
Regardless, many of the native tribes still practice a written religion known as Talusism.

Talusism is taken from the Saokan word Talusum, which means Writings. Their religious book, The Writings, is a complete history of Saokan prehistory and development prior to the colonization and conquests of their people three centuries ago.

-   The Goyau Saoka area experiences earthquakes and minor quakes every year, while the coasts suffer from hurricanes during the spring and summer periods.
_________________________________________________________
Overview:
The Greater Bay Republic is the ONLY government on Keyosteyon that is run by a civilian government. For centuries, it was run by a monopoly of Quoltlani-Saokans, who sought to put the hammer down on the native tribes; but over time, and especially with the rise of Izok Miyau's administration; the Greater Bay Republic finally returned to its centuries old practice of civilian government and administration. 
Each tribe elects a tribal Chief to represent its interests, as well as two representatives and one senator. The Greater Bay Republic is the only country, other than the Quoltlanis inthe East, to have its own contract with its citizens on paper. The Greater Bay Republic is also the only country on Keosteyon to honor its contract with its citizens, by way of a judiciary, legislature; and executive branch. Each acting in tandem with the others.
_________________________________________________________
Society:
The Greater Bay Republic is as modern a society as one can get. Social programs mean that most of its citizens don't starve; but they also have to face major issues as well.

Saokans, the natives to the area, still face discrimination and racism by the ruling Quoltani elite. They often live in ghettos in the major cities and towns, not by force in terms of military harassment, but by economic and social means. Most Saokans live separate and unequal lives in their own country, despite the rise of one of their own Tribal Kaz (Leader) rising to the highest office in the land. Below, I'll detail the social and political ills and sucesses of the Greater Bay Republic.

Gender (in)Equality
While Saokans pride themselves on the recognition of more than one gender, that is meaningless outside of the tribal authority. Though many tribes have forced the national government to recognize gay marriage, and social equality; workplace and political equality for those on the LGBTQ spectrum are limited, mainly because of religious pressure from ancestor-worshipping Quoltlani-Saokans who don't want to see their own privileges put on the chopping block. And while the LGBTQ community in the Greater Bay Republic suffers exponentially, women also suffer within the male dominated Greater Bay Republic.

Centuries before the Quoltlani invasion of the Saokan tribes; the tribal authority recognized women as equals to men, based off their own origin story alone, which had done the same. Women used to hold land, political office; and become Tribal Leaders. Unfortunately, Quoltlani colonial rule changed all of that in an instant, and many rights women enjoyed prior to the Arrival, must now be returned in full, to the modern Saokan society.

This however, is changing slowly, as the Greater bay Republic starts to return to its roots, and recognize the value of people just living their lives in peace, love and mercy.

Racial (dis)Harmony
Most Saokan tribes are of the Hodqui, or Black pigmentation, due to their mainly tropical existence. They adhere to a principle of racial equality, as they are often the ones taking the brunt of the racial issues going on within their own country. Most Saokan tribes don't accept Quoltlani rule and culture being imposed on them, and overtime, have revolted or rioted periodically at the ruling elite. Until Izok's surprise electoral win in 5768, and again in 5772, Saokas many tribes failed to win any seats within the Greater Bay Republic's congress.

After Izok's win, Saokans started to recognize the tribal authority as a legitimate governing body within the Greater Bay Republic. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of work and integration to be done over the next decade, as the Greater Bay Republic starts to face its past and present racial issues.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse
While there is NO prohibition on alcohol in the Greater Bay Republic, pharmaceutical overdoses and alcohol abuse among the country's poorest population, has reached international news. Drug smuggling is a huge problem among the elite 1% of the population, and yet it comes with few ramifications for that sector of the population. With Izok's administration now in nearly full control of the government - due mainly to political oversight in the special election of 5768 - Saokans may finally see a break in this area. Many of Saoka's biggest pharmacies are expected to get sued for abusive practices over the next decade, as Bill 542b gets signed by Izok, allowing major industries to be sued for malpractice, and ending the for-profit health industries altogether. 

Economic (dis)Unity
The Greater Bay Republic is among the wealthiest nations on the planet - and yet the smallest. They're so wealthy, that they were able to build an orbital tether in their smallest town, simply to setup their own space program. And yet, while most of the population enjoys great property wealth, only 2% of the population enjoys the majority of what the Greater Bay Republic has to offer. And only 1% of the population has enough wealth to sustain all of the country as a whole. During Izok's administration, the big banks were broken up not once, but twice, due to this economic disunity. Saokan Tribal Authorities were allowed to setup their own banks, for the first time in history; and now tribes can start accumulating wealth for their tribes. 

Music and Culture
The Greater Bay Republic enjoys a variety of musical styles that reflect the modern and the past.
Some musical genres associated with the Greater Bay Republic, are found mainly in the tribes, are illustrated in this album I've written here:
soundcloud.com/isaac-riley-1/s…

Their national anthem for instance, is an orchestral piece known as a Vaeladerian piece. The frame drums are Malankan in origin and play as such. The Vaeladerian genre is known for its sweeping strings and staccatos, with bombastic horns and trumpets; and are often accompanied by a choir or solo singer; or both, as in the case of the Malankan anthem Lamp of Liberty.

Other styles include the Dinus style, which is very modern; and accompanied by modern instruments such as the Piano or Organ; with modern tones. Such songs in this soundtrack, include the Orbital Tether Anthem Ladder to Heaven, the Valousan anthem Surrender to Hope; and the Bakan anthem, Market Town.

And while there are other styles of music represented in this soundtrack, such as the Pritus style, which consists of fast-paced drums and staccato choirs; the Greater Bay Republic also has a unique form of artistic representation.

The Viyuntus style of poetry, which is meant to follow an accompanying soundtrack, such as Lamp of Liberty, is a free-verse form of poetry. In many cases, it follows a drum rhythm, as the poet sings or raps his poetry out.  The Viyuntus style goes back presumably, to the dawn of time, but has taken on a more modern take as the Saokan tribes start to integrate into the society at large. 

_________________________________________________________
Economy:
The Greater Bay Republic, ideally expects a more social-capitalistic economic standard; but the country actually has a very capitalist-based economy. As illustrated above, the top 1% of the population holds as much wealth as the  bottom 60%. The country has a shrinking middle class. But as reforms start to kick in, that middle class is expected to grow once again, making the Greater Bay Republic into the social capital of the world once more. Social programs help to buffet the growing poor population sectors, while the bottom 50% - mainly tribal members - are starting to come out of poverty. 
 The Saokan Arot, its primary trading coin, is worth more than 20 USD today by comparison. The insanely wealthy country has a lot of rare goods that can be exported, and yields very little imports. Its growing, green economy is producing new industries and jobs to a once stagnate job market, while its population starts to grow.
_________________________________________________________
Architecture and Engineering
The Greater Bay Republic is known for its modern architecture, and blocky building design. This Iodus or International Style as it is known here on Earth, is very recognizable. Some of the country's buildings also follow the Iadinus architectural technique of steel, concrete and glass buildings with a futuristic look. Such structures are far and few between, as this style of architecture can be quite expensive. Interior design on many buildings can be quite luxurious and ambitious. The tallest tower in the country, the Telecommunications Tower in Daemi-Hiyaza stands at 201 stories in height, while the tallest free-standing structure, the Orbital Tether Tower off of Saoka-Migam, stands roughly 2 to 3 miles in height. The Greater Bay Republic is well known for its ambitious building projects, such as the Orbital Tether, and its modern subway system. The Soliquibaz International Airport, is one  of the world's most modern pieces of architecture to date. Overall, the Greater Bay Republic, enjoys a variety of architecture tastes, that resemble the large, varied cultures and climates that call the country home.
_________________________________________________________
Education:

The Greater Bay Republic expects high standards in education. As such, university education can be expensive, but college and public schooling is free. The country has Three major universities that are internationally known.
-Malanka University of Computer Science
-Oromi-Equez University of Science and Technology
-Paratus University of Science and Technology
The Greater Bay Republic has an A+ rating by the International Tribunal, for its education policy, and that rating is expected to remain for the next few decades, as reforms from Izok's administration take hold for the bottom 60% of the population.

A Poem by Isaac Thomas Riley.

Translated into English, from Migamjiolqua.

we were soldiers once.

heroes, running into the dark, reaching a hand to bring back hope.

we were heroes, once.

slaves to the system of oppression we sought to stamp out.

in bondage to machine minds and hearts.

we were regimented and dieted, sent into the dying light like cattle, ready for the sacrifice.

we were soldiers once.

and we laughed at the idea of freedom, the lonely aspiration of which we defended for others.

to defend their freedom is our sacrifice, when we should be living.

alongside those who we seek to defend.

yes, we were soldiers once.

and we still are.

defenders of the hopeless many, heroes to the warriors who look up at us.

we do not always carry weapons of war.

nor do we always do combat in fields of battle.

but make no mistake:

we are all soldiers.

reaching out a hand, for the hope that we all desire, and bringing back nothing.

brave men will fight and die, and still braver men will come.

leaders will rise and fall, and still greater leaders will rise up.

we are all soldiers, and our battle is inside of each one of us.

to fight and die, only few will ever reach the dream that is tranquility.

we are all soldiers.


We are Soldiers
Written originally in FLEX Fieldworks, a free language exploration software that I've been using for conlangs, this poem can be "dated" back to the early days of the Saokan peoples revolutionary movement to end the slave trade that had targeted them in their native lands. The poems were part of a massive, public relations campaign known as Quito vi patrisae, or "Bondage and suffering." the colonizing governor of the Saokan city of Daemi-Mondaez, fearing an uprising in the small city-state, allowed the poems, all written by former slaves, free-men and women and people wrongfully enslaved by the governor;  were put to writing by the son of the Quoltlani governor's king. Rito Oy'yolqua. At that time, the newspaper was the fastest way to get news by way of horse, to the people. And the campaign worked. In little over four years, the governor of the Saokan peoples requested the freedom of his colony from the control of Quoltlan, the governing superpower at the time, and they accepted it within ten years. Thirty years later, the Saokan peoples would endure a war for the liberation of their slaves - and their proper introduction to society - and the Saokan city-state wouldn't look back. Currently, the city-state is the size of France, with doozens of major cities in its belt, and over three million citizens, all free from bondage, in its control.

Why, you must be asking, am I introducing a poem about soldiers as my first induction in this PR campaign?
That's simple: 

The writer is asking us, the reader, to sort through the war within all of us, the prejudice and fighting; and find a reason to love one another. In their logic, we have more in common than we don't . Hence: we are soldiers in life.

Below, I'll put the original poem as written in FLEX, for your enjoyment. Be sure to message me, or comment if you want more poems! I've got two more already written. Flight, and Bondage. 

ORIGINAL POEM:

Written in Migamjiolqua using SIL FLEX.

Quei lua praetorae olqualae.

Primae jieratus enae na noitae, grapus a manib ae praeta rola spae.

Quei lua primae olqualae.

En quito ae ratus saprisae vi aminoae.

Quei lua legionatum vi magatum, misit enae na moraetis luxer taec peikut.

Quei lua praetorae olqualae.

Vi quei risumitus ot na sapris ex yibaera, na solom montaez, ex eilu quei tectatum quo onotae.

Ae tecta nobiwis yibaera to quewis fichium, taeyoa quei ut vo vitaerum,

Tectatae ex na nonspae multis, primae ae na bestralorae queti spaekor quopis ot qui.

Quei at non ausaequei hapei armisae ex baelum.

Ad craet noz eroris.

Quei rex aus praetorae.

Grapus taes a manib, quo na spae quei aus desider, vi praetaris rola nul.

Fortim homis ris aestris vi morae, vi huk fortimas homis ris praenit.

Ae aestris vi morae, olhui quola ris aesi grapei na vilar natir to pachem.

Quei rex aus praetorae.

City Of Glory - Orchestral Score Review
My original score here:
musescore.com/user/139230/scor…

City of Glory, is a powerful remaster of the original Anthem (To The City of Peace) track I've been harping on for the better part of two years. 
Remixed specifically for An Age of Combat Original Soundtrack, this song is not the official anthem of the Greater Bay Republic, (That's another song called Lamp of Liberty. (Not the version on my Musescore page.)) but rather, the anthem of the city of Twin Hills (Daemi-Hiyaza in Migamjiolqua.)

The original anthem was written back in 2014, during what I now refer to as my golden age of original music. The simple tune wouldn't be touched until June of last year, when full orchestral arrangements were being put out for the original soundtrack for An Age of Combat, my novel.

This track was one of my top personal choices, and remains so to this day as one of my more original tracks.
Fully completed today, I intend on one day purchasing East-West Symphonic Choirs to help realize my potential in producing music with a "singing" choir. 

This orchestral score review was done in Musescore, and I hope to update the musescore page to feature City of Glory in the near future.

Below, I have listed the lyrics, so you can enjoy the language of Migamjolqua, the Tongue of the River Peoples, for yourself. Once I complete 1,500 words in the language; I will upload an abridged dictionary and some poems in that language. (With English translations.) I am currently at 630 words right now, so wish me luck and send my hope and encouragement!

Nearer My God To Thee - Orchestral Review
I was inspired to write a version of Nearer My God To Thee, since I first heard the song a few days ago. Written in free-form, I figured that I'd add in my own lyrics, to better present my own tedious relationship with God and religion in general. Written in Musescore, I intend on uploading the song there, once I can find the time to delete a track or two I don't want up there.

So here is my rendition of Nearer My God To Thee, in Orchestral form; with added lyrics. The song will be uploaded to Youtube once all the other songs are done, and their videos completed. Not all of my music has sheet music, but for this particular soundtrack, a good number of songs do.

Here are the lyrics in text form for the curious!

Sopr. "All hail our good lord, all hail his word!"
Alto. "All hail our good lord, all hail his word!"
Tenor." All hail our good lord, hear his words!"
Bass. "All hail our good lord, on high!"
Mzb. "All hail our good lord, on high!"
Bari."All hail our good lord, on high!"
Bass. "All hail our good lord, on high!"
Sopr. "All hail our good lord, we are nearly there!"
Alto. "All hail our good lord, we are nearly there!"
Tenor. "His words bounds all!"
Bass. "His good word bounds all!"
Mzb."His good word bounds all!"
Bari. "His good word bounds all!"
Sopr. "Oh, hail our great lord, we hear his cries now!"
Alto. "Oh, his word! Oh, his holy name!"
Tenor. "All hear his words!"
Bass. "All hail his words!"
Mzb. "All hail his words!"
Bari. "All hail his words!"
Sopr. "In the name of highest, merciful loving ways!"
Alto. "Adorn thee who lives on, for all time!"
Tenor. "Hear! His words for all eternity!"
Bass. "Our Lord so made the Earth, paradise!"
Mzb. "His law binds! Our ways are as his ways, eternity!"
Bari. "We hear his call! From the wind! Holy words!"
Sopr. "In your holy name, we rise up in prayer!"
Sopr. "We are nearly there, to touch your grand throne!"
Sopr. "Even in death we thrive, for your holy words bring hope!"
Alto. "In our darkest days, we find solace in your granduer!"
Sopr. "When in his holy name, we shall conquer!"
Alto. "We shall conquer all!"
Sopr. "Even in death we thrive, for your holy words bring hope!"
Alto. "In our darkest days, we find solace in your granduer!"

  • Listening to: Alien Earth Peace Ambience Tracks
  • Reading: Alien Earth, Chapter 1
  • Watching: the Screen
  • Playing: Sketchup 2016
  • Eating: nothing
  • Drinking: nothing
Well, With 2017 upon us, I've got big plans. Ambitious plans; and new desires.

So where do I begin?
Last year was a bit rough on me artistically. Only because a rarely posted here or on my other sites. 

So here is what I am working on:
1) A civilization V mod called Alien Earth, for a novel I am working on of the same name.
2) Lot's and lot's of MUSIC!
3) Thinking about doing my first madefire comic.
4) A graphic novel called Liberty Shield, set in the same universe as my novel An Age of Combat.

And a whole lot more. So join me in ringing in the year!

As for my first deviation, I have six choices for you for me to upload, and you can only tell me in the comments.
Please state your reason why I should upload the deviation if you desire.

1) The Conlang I've been working on, new updates.
2) Some leader graphics (3d) for my MOD Alien Earth.
3) A picture of Dolsa Zokau Roz OR Izok Wadolboz Miyau, from An Age of Combat Rewrite, along with their respective bio. 
4) A picture of my  novel 2100's lead character, Police Commissioner Juarez Del-Rio. 
5) A flag design for Alien Earth's lead nation Portia, as well as a link to its national anthem.
6) A chapter from my short story "A Tale Of Two Worlds," detailing Izok Miyau's meteoric rise through politics.

Isaac Thomas Riley
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.

I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)

For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.

College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.

In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.

I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.

My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.

But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.

So I leave you, my friend, with this. What's in a name?
I = Innovative
S = Smart
A = Accepting
A = Accomplished
C = Caring

T = Talkative
H = Hopeful
O = Outspoken
M = Musician
A = Able
S = Safe

R = Respectful
I = Impressive
L = Loving
E = Explorer
