Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

That's progress for you

The English Navy was so proud of the majestic tudor warship, the Mary Rose that they added another deck so she could carry more cannons.

On July 19, 1545 the top-heavy vessel sank while in full view of King Henry VIII. The ship was raised in 1982 and is now on display in Portsmouth.

Officially there has been no "English Navy" as the designation "Royal Navy" has been in use since Alfred the Great. You really don't want to upset the Great One.
