This thread's purpose is to give a place for any additional background knowledge to end up. This can be pertaining to your own character's culture and homeland, or to help flesh out an area our characters are visiting. Or it can just be for the hell of it. However, there are a few rules:
1. You must have it in some format such as an essay, journal, or even documentary, and there must be a name to associate with it. For journal format, mentioning some form of dating system helps (though it doesn't have to be legible if you don't have any clue when this kind of thing would occur).
2. It can be something your character is currently writing, if you want. Depending on current mood, this can become more varied in how it's approached. For example, if you felt like making a haiku on how giant insect colonies suck and should die, you could put it here.
3. Be creative, especially with journal entries. Try to give a bit of knowledge about the author with them.
4. If you don't feel like doing something in this format, but want to add information about whatever, just put OOC at the start of your post and put the info however you see fit. Whatever style makes you happiest.
As for the rest, have fun with it.

Somewhere in the Mirrorskies
Bottle: Heresy. A crime against the natural order of things. You disgust me, Luthor.
Luthor: Mmm, really?
Luthor Snark lowered his blowtorch and walked over to one of the large computers he'd rigged up.
Luthor: You think we'll get a big thunderstorm this evening?
Bottle: I don't care about your inhumane experiments, Snark.
Luthor: *Scratches his chin* "Inhumane" you say? Funny choice of words that, considering I'm not working on a human. Or something living either for that matter.
Luthor issued a command to the computer and leaned back to watch the small servant droids get to work on the prosthesis.
Bottle: This disgusts me.
Luthor: Science doesn't mind getting a bit dirty for the sake of PROGRESS. "Disgusting", "Inhumane" and "Crimes against nature" are just subjective terms by people with limited vision(http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/1338/allright.gif)!!
Bottle: And how exactly is this supposed to be "progress"? Your just screwing around ith a corpse!
Luthor: Do I have to remind you that humanform constructs is one of my many specialities? I've learned a lot since project WISP. This work here is an experiment in order to further improve on my skills, and to further study the physiology of this particular species. Also, I want to find out exactly how much of the body I actually need to make a functional construct in this manner...And it's my children's birthday soon.
Luthor: Yes, my it's my children's twentieth-something birthday soon! So I'm thinking this would be a quite nice present, don't you agree? Well, I admit it's a bit boyish, so I might give Elena something else maybe an updated Nannybot? WISP's basic day-to-day functions were actually based on the original Nannybot AI I created when the kids were five year old, but I'm certain Elias at least will appreciate a gift of this calibre! Oh yes, he was always the bloodthirsty one, just like his mother *Hearty laugh*
Bottle: Your salvaging this to revive it and send it as a birthday gift? You-you-you bastard! I've never felt this sickened in my whole life! You are a complete monster!!
Luthor: -and the best daddy in the world! Oh, I wish I'd be there once they see their gift from me! This will be the best birthday present ever! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Perhaps a demented dream of an omniscient, unbearably bored catboy or insatiably curious shapeshifter. Maybe a story started by one or the other. Maybe even the truth. The only thing that's certain is that neither will give a straight answer.
A grinning catboy and a cross looking panian shadow creature stand before the wreckage of a capital city.
Adam: SHIRE! We're supposed to be on vacation!
Shire: I dunno about you but I am having a wonderful time here.
Adam: You toppled an Alliance Governorship, Shire!
Shire: The people have spoken. Viva la Resistance!
Adam: You pushed the resistance leader into a giant fan.
Shire: He was a traitor and a scoundrel.
Adam: He was trying to stop you from pushing other people into a giant fan.
*Shire's belly bulges out for a moment*
Shire: Oh! That was a foot. I appear to have swallowed an entire person.
Adam: That was the hotel bartender.
Shire: Well that would explain why my mojito is taking so long.
Adam: It was horrifying. Your mouth unhinged like a snake's.
Shire: That sounds pretty awesome.
Adam: I can't go anywhere with you, Shire.
Shire: That hurt my feelings. Now we're both in the wrong.
Adam: I wanna go home. We're leaving.
*both begin walking away*
Shire: In that case I should probably mention I filled our luggage with orphan meat.
Shire: Well, I'm building a Meat Dragon and not just any meat will do.
Adam: You know what? Forget it. I'm not even shocked anymore.
Shire: Aw, that's no fun.
Adam: This has become the norm for you, Shire.
Shire: I'll have to try harder next time.
Adam: Please don't...
Shire: I feel like I've been issued a challenge.
Shire: It's too late now...you.
Shire: I totally don't remember which name you're using right now.
Adam: You're omniscient!
Shire: And such an impression your new moniker has had!
*the pair disappear through a Nhihn gate*

In a time before time was even invented, before the term "countless millennia" could even be applied, there was only chaos. An eternity of chaos, of constant change and disruption. This is the nature of chaos, because chaos cannot be in rest. Turning to rest would mean the same as the end of chaos. No, for chaos to be chaos, it has to exist in a constant duality of creation/destruction, to always make new and break down old.
In this mess of constant change there comes a static probability of chaos creating something that is not chaos. So happened, and chaos created order. Order proved to be resistant to the nature of chaos, and thus wasn't destroyed by it. Prevailing in the endless change, order went to work to create more of its kin (because this is the nature of order).
Order had an idea.
Junior Weaver bowed to Grand Tribunal.
Junior Weaver: I have come here today to judged by Grand Tribunal for my crimes.
Grand Tribunal: *Nods* I will now read out the charges set against you Junior Weaver.
Grant Tribunal turned to the assembly of Servants. They had all been gathered here to watch Junior Weaver's trial. The interest was great. This was the first time ever a Servant would tried for breaking the law, and not even the Servants could predict what the outcome would be.
Grand Tribunal: Junior Weaver, you've been accused for tampering with the great idea. Without authorization you created something outside the idea. Because you neglected protocol your creations started to mutate and knot the weave, resulting in permanent damage that not even the Great Patcher can repair. What do you have to say to your defence.
Junior Weaver: It was an accident! I just wished to see what happened if you mixed the hope and learning capabilities of mortal species. I didn't expect them to completely flip out of control!
Grand Tribunal: We know. We call this new behavioural parameter curiosity: It's a highly unstable concoction of ideas and urges that makes the mortal species highly unpredictable. Already we've located several knots in the weave that your little experiment has been the direct or indirect cause of. If more knots stars to appear-
A small messenger had suddenly appeared. It was from the Great Patcher, the only Servant who had decided to not attend the trial since he had felt it more important to make a closer inspection of some of the new knots in the weave. The messenger whispered it's message to Grand Tribunal's audio input.
Grand Tribunal: ...-they are doing what?!-...but the Regents were supposed to rule-...but they are so tiny!...they just don't "give a sh*t"?!...-THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. *Turns to Junior Weaver again, now visibly upset*
Junior Weaver: *Gulp*
Grand Tribunal: Junior Weaver, I had intended to go be reasonable and forgiving, but the situation has changed. I just got word from the Great Patcher that your little creation has caused an uprising against the regent species!
Junior Weaver: What?!
Grand Tribunal: Apparently, the "curiosity of knowing what it is like to not be ruled by some oversized scaly bully" made a human take up arms against one of the regents and kill it.
Junior Weaver: What?! But humans are so tiny!
Grand Tribunal: According to the words of the Great Patcher, said human "didn't give a sh*t". Now, said traits are spreading. We're working to correct it, but the damage is already done. The regents are fleeing for their lives and going into hiding all over the Mirrorskies, fearing to meet more of the regent killers. This is an outrage! For your tampering with the weave I hereby judge you to a-
Another messenger arrived.
Grand Tribunal: *Sighs* What now?...-what?-...But why would they want?-..."for the fun of it?!" But most of them get killed!-...GAH, this is an unprecedented disaster! Junior Weaver, are you aware what your "curiosity" has done?!
Junior Weaver: ...No?
Grand Tribunal: Mortals are moving through the Nhihn gates! They "want to know what's on the other side". They are doing it "for the fun of it". Do you realize how much damage and *spits* chaos this has already wrought? The regents was just a drip in the ocean compared to this! You've created the greatest disaster in the long history of us Servants!
Junior Weaver: How was I supposed to know?! I didn't expect my creation to be this-
Grand Tribunal: Silence! Junior Weaver, for your crimes I, the destined Grand Tribunal, hereby judge you to exile. Your powers and parts will be dissembled and thrown away into the Mirrorskies. May you return to Service again once you manage to pick yourself together.
Junior Weaver: What?! No, you can't do this to me! I didn't meant to do any harm, I just wanted to know what would happen if-*Gets grabbed by a pair of larger Servants* *Gets dragged away*

Adam lies on the grass, the wind peacefully floating past him as he watches the clouds go by, thinking about this and that.
Shire: *OUTTA FREAKING NOWHERE* AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Adam: AGH! What?! What is it?!
Shire: I SUPER NEED TO KICK SOMEONE!
Adam: HOLY CRAP ME TOO!
Shire: LETS TOTALLY DO IT!
A dragon that looks suspiciously like a much younger Zhi wearing Awesome Sunglasse(TM) juggles three balls in one hand like the awesome dude he is. At least until the yelling starts.
Shire & Adam: AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Suspiciously Zhi-Looking Dragon: Hey, dudes, what's going o-
Shire & Adam: *while kicking* AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
SZLD: Ow! Augh! Oof! Ouch!
Suspiciously Nico-Looking Dragon: Hey guys!
*awkward silence ensues*
SNLD: How's it going?
Shire & Adam: AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
SNLD: *now being kicked* Yay, I'm involved!
Adam: Well, we did it.
Shire: We totally kicked some people.
Adam: Then why do I feel this TERRIBLE SILKY EMPTINESSSSSSS...
Shire: Holy crap me too! It's like we're soul mates!
Adam: I do everything I want. Why do I feel like I do NOTHING?!
Shire: What is wrong with us?! *starts putting stickers on Adam* Are we gonna die? ARE WE GONNA DIE?!
Adam: Shut up and make some cake!
*later with cake*
Adam: Even with cake I feel nothing...
Shire: I don't remember how I got here.
Adam: What is wrong with us?
Suspiciously Zhi-Looking Dragon: *still beat up and now being sat on* Go away you knuckleheads.
Adam: What if we have too much? What if we never feel anything again?!
SZLD: That's YOUR problem. I'm outta here.
In one totally awesome move he slips out from under the two of them, shooting off into the air before exploding into fireworks.
Adam: *falls to his knees* NOOOOOOO!!!! IT'S SO LOVELY!!!!!
Shire: I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER MAKING A CAKE!

Things ninja melog is not allowed to do:
1. A thermal detonator is not a ninja weapon.
1a. Nor is it the primary negotian tool.
1b. Because we have Tyroth for that.
2. Plan B is not more smoke bombs than plan A. The maids don't like the floor stains.
3. Wall stains are not better.
4. It still violates the no unsanctioned assasination rule if you plant evidence implicating someone else.
5. I can't talk to you when you're on the cieling.
6. A bazooka is not stealthy...
6a. A bazooka shouldn't be that stealthy.
7. Melog is not alowed to use unstable mutagen to create an army of mutant turtles to be trained in ninjitsu.
8. Or to create rat mutants to train the turtles.
9. Toads are right out.
