Flag of Royal Scythia
"Based on the Pontic-Caspian Steppe of what is today Ukraine, southern Russia, and western Kazakhstan, the western Scythians (Skita) were ruled by a class of nobility known as the Royal Scyths. The Scythians established and controlled a vast trade network connecting Greece, Persia, India, and China, perhaps contributing to the flourishing of the four nations. Settled Scythian metalworkers forged decorative objects based on animal toteism and iconography, preserving a distinct Scythian style of art. In the 8th century BCE, the Scythians moved westwards from their Andronovo homeland in Central Asia and engaged the Kimmerians in battle, where they emerged the victorious. In the 7th century BCE, the Scythians crossed the Caucasus alongside a contingent of the Kimmerians and raided the powers of the Middle East as part of the Umman Manda confederation. The Scythians briefly dominated the Medes of the western Iranian Plateau, but soon returned their attention to the Assyrian Empire, sacking the capital Nineveh in 612 BCE. The Scythians engaged in frequent conflicts with the Achaemenid Empire of the Iranian Plateau. North of the Caucasus, the Scythians were gradually displaced by the conquest of the Sarmatians, who had learned how to counter Scythian offensives. The eastern Scythians (Saka) were attacked by the Iranian Yuezhi and Wusun and Siberian Hunnu Confederation in the 2nd century BC, causing a Saka migration into the Himalayas and the Hindu Kush. As late as the 3rd century, a group of Saka crossed the Pamir Mountains of Tajikistan and settled in the western Tarim Basin. The remnants of the Scythians in Europe contributed to the ethnogenesis of the Bulgarian, Hungarian, and Russian nations." 
Flag of Volga Bulgaria / Suvar (Chuvashia)
A Chuvash flag of the Medieval Volga Bulgarian Empire, complete with the Dulo Clan symbol, and the words 'Atălşi Pălhar', which means 'Volga Bulgarian' in the Chuvash language. 
A new Transformers written project is in the works. The story is a collision of the Movie and War for Cybertron universes, and is set after III, during IV, and precedes V. This idea has presented itself over the previous week, when I returned to the Dark of the Moon and War for Cybertron stories that I have begun.

Dark of the Moon - Total Eclipse is nearing completion, and will contain twelve chapters on completion. Originally, three years ago, Total Eclipse was planned to have approximately 24 chapters. 

War for Cybertron may become the first of two stories, as with this, I feel the story will have great future potential. 

The third, and most recent project, has two titles - Consumer and Sun-Consumer, as a reference for one of the project's characters. The story takes place on Earth and on Cybertron, and opens with the deactivation of Sentinel Prime's Space Bridge. The story is an alternate version of the Movie universe, and the robots take the centre stage.
Earth characters:
-Optimus Prime
-The Dinobots

On Cybertron, familiar characters from G1 and War for Cybertron will appear alongside my own created characters, who are part of the neutral side, the Neutronians:
-Ultra Magnus
-Hot Rod (Hot Shot)
-Air Raid
-The Stunticons

Three of the Neutronians, who later lead factions of their own:
Bluestreak, Greenplex (V2), and Hyperion. 

I listened to this music when thinking over plot ideas:
Flag of Sarmatia Minor
"The Iazyges, a Sarmatian tribe, settled in Pannonia, north of the Danube, in the 1st Century BCE. These Sarmatians displaced the Dacians in the region and began to become involved in regional politics, supporting Vespasian, who would soon become Emperor of Rome. 

92 BCE: The Iazyges ally with the Scytho-Sarmatian Roxolani (ancestors of Russians), the Germanic Suevi, and the Dacians of the Carpathians. A war with Rome breaks out, and the Kvadi and Marcomanns also revolt. The Romans are defeated, despite their leader Domitian claiming victory. Annual tribute is paid to the Dacian Emperor Decebalus to prevent the outbreak of further wars. 
69-96 AD: The Kings of the Iazyges are trained in the Imperial Roman Army, as an honour and a tradition. The Romans feared these powerful Sarmatians, disallowing them to send troops to Rome and thinking of the Kings as hostages, in case the Iazyges should revolt. The Romans transfer their legions from the Rhine to the Danube.
1st Century AD: The alliance between the Iazyges (Western Sarmatians) and Dacians is renewed, leading to the construction of Roman fortifcations along the Danube, much of which is difficult to transverse. 
101 AD - First Dacian War: The Iazyges are allied to the Dacians of King Decebalus when Romans under Trajan attack. The Dacians are defeated and forced to accept vassal status, but upon Trajan's return to Rome, the Second Dacian War begins. 
106 AD - Second Dacian War: The Iazyges are on the side of the Romans when they move into Dacia with the might of eleven legions. Decebalus commits suicide to retain honour rather than become a symbol of Roman victory. The steppe between Transylvania and the Tisia river are left for the Iazyges. 
Between 113-117 AD: Dispute between the Iazyges and the Romans over the ownership of Oltenia (Wallachia Minor), which results in a Iazyges-Roman peace treaty after Hadrian invades their territory. The Iazyges capture Banat, part of the peace conditions, as well as one-time tribute from Rome. 
117 AD: The Iazyges and Roxolani invade Lower Pannonia and Moesia. The Roxolani are the first to surrender after the offensives, while the Iazyges send an embassy to Rome and agree on conditions to their advantage. 
123 AD: The Sarmatians invade Roman-occupied Dacia, which is under Marcius Turbo. Turbo succeeds in counterattacking the Iazyges. 
169 AD: Iazyges, Kvads, and Marcommans invade Roman territory. A veteran of the Parthian Wars, Marcus Claudius Fronto. manages to counterattack, but dies in battle a year later. The Kvads surrender and allow the Romans to place the Roman-orientated Furtius onto the Kvadic throne. The Marcommans followed, but the Iazyges did not.
173 AD: The Kvads overthrow Furtius and placed Ariogaesus on their throne. The Iazyges remained undefeated and unchallenged, and so, they launched an attack across the frozen Danube. 
174 AD: The Romans of Marcus Aurelius respond. Ariogaesus appears to support the Iazyges, and Marcus Aurelius issues a reward for the capture of the Kvad leader. Upon Ariogaesus' capture, Aurelius exiled him instead of executing him. King Banadaspus of the Iazyges attempts peace with the Romans, but is refused and deposed by the Iazyges.
175 AD: Despite seeming to have an advantage, the Iazyges sued for a peace under Zanticus, with conditions not in their favour. 
177 AD: Iazyges with the aid of Germanic tribes invade Roman territory again, but this results in their defeat and the defeat of the Germanic Buri. Further restrictions were placed on the Iazyges, but they were allowed to communicate with the Roxolani through Roman-occupied Dacia. Trading restrictions were also removed. 
183 AD: Commodus prevents the Kvadi and the Marcommani from declaring war on the Iazyges, the Vandals, and the Buri. At this time, the Iazyges seem to serve Rome. 
4th Century AD: The Iazyges who reside in Pannonia seem to have separated into the Argaragantes and Limigantes, tribes who inhabit the region of the Tisia (Tisza). 
472 AD: The King of the Visigoths, Theodoric the Great, kills the co-rulers, Babay and Beuca. 
13th Century AD: In the Kingdom of Hungary, people known as the Jász settled along with the Cumans. The Jász are regarded to be a subtribe of Ossetian people from the North Caucasus, much like Iron (who are again split into Kurtats, Alagirs, Tagaurs, Kudars, Tuals, Urstuals, and Chsans), and the Digors. Others compare the Jász to the Iazyges, due to the striking similarity of the ethnonym. Iashi, a city in Romania, is named after the Iazyges."

The legacy of the Iazyges (Western Sarmatians) does not end in Eastern Europe. The aftermath of the defeat in 175 AD resulted in several conditions being imposed on the Iazyges: no Sarmatian was to reside with nine miles (ten Roman miles) of the Danube. The Iazyges also had to provide 8,000 horsemen to the Roman Empire, to serve as foederati (auxillaries), and over 100,000 Roman captives were to be released. The aftermath of this defeat could have been worse by far: it is said Marcus Aurelius intended to annihilate all Iazyges before his attention was drawn to events elsewhere in the Empire. Out of the 8,000, 5,500 were sent to Britannia and Northern Gaul. The inhabitants of Britain, a mass of Celtic peoples, saw that the Roman Empire was preoccupied, and took the opportunity to revolt. The revolt spread to Northern Gaul, where in 184 AD, a contingent of Iazyges, led by Lucius Artorius Castus, rode to crush the rebelling populace. 1,500 Iazyges were present in Italy. 

Lucius Artorius Castus serves as historical basis for the legendary Romano-British general and ruler King Arthur. The Sarmatians are seen as progenitors of the European Knight culture, and their appearance on horseback as cataphract warriors gave rise to the Knights of the Round Table. The Round Table itself descends from nomadic traditions that are noticeably practiced by Turkic peoples - the Kurultai. The Alans, of which the Sarmatians descend, as well as a number of Circassian and North Caucasian groups, believe in the Nart Saga, which have striking similarities to the legends of King Arthur and the Iranian sword cult of the steppes. King Arthur and the Sarmatians, who were stationed notably in today's Ribchester, Northern England, rallied the Celtic tribes and Roman remainders in Britain and fought the invading Anglo-Saxons. 

Iazyges and Sarmatian influences were seen in the Roman Army. They adopted the Sarmatian standard, known as the 'Draco', as well as lamellar armour, which was favoured by the Sarmatians and other steppe peoples. The Romans made an effort to include horse archers into their army, especially in the East, where they confronted the might of the Sassanian Empire. This flag represents the region in Britain that the Sarmatians inhabited, titled 'Sarmatia Minor' as opposed to 'Sarmatia Major' in Ukraine. 

The flag could be brought into use by a number of peoples:
-People who claim Sarmatian descent in the United Kingdom
-People who claim Alan descent in Spain, Portugal, and France
-The J
ász and Iazyges of Hungary 
-People who claim Sarmatian descent in Poland (Sarmatia Minor, as opposed to Ukraine - Sarmatia Minor)

Sylux identity theories

Sylux is the Hunter that is most discussed, due to his humanoid appearance, and his mysterious and intense dislike of the Federation. Sylux has appeared in Metroid Prime Hunters, and Sylux's ship, the Delano 7, purportedly appeared at the end of Metroid Prime 3 - Corruption

1) There are speculations that Sylux is linked to Federation personnel, but this is unlikely, as the Federation most likely has a database of information on all its personnel, and any mechanics, engineers, or scientists who go missing are likely to be filed. One suggestion was Dr Madeline Bergman from Metroid: Other M. Sylux could have been given the armour or details of the armaments and weapons by a person within the organisation.

2) Perhaps the above theory would not apply for personnel who were KIA – a person like Ian Malkovich would not be suspected of surviving and stealing the armaments used by Sylux, and Ian Malkovich would have inside knowledge of the Galactic Federation and a reason for a vendetta against the GF and Samus Aran.

3) Some symbiote or sentient energy could have taken over the suit of armour, being able to slip past Federal security measures easily, and wishes to take the Federation on single-handed with its new solid form. This theory is backed up by the fact that Sylux's Lockjaw, the Alt-Form, is bound together by an orb of energy. Most of the other Hunters tuck into their Alt-Forms due to physical enhancements. It could have also been a form of lethal, avant-garde bioweaponry developed by the Federation, that eventually broke free of Federation control.

4) Sylux is a suit of armour controlled by Gorea and used to bring the Hunters down, Samus Aran in particular, and use its weapon and energy to break free and gain strength.

5) Sylux is a cybernetic creature of some sort, stolen by the Space Pirates and used to give the remains of an alien a new body, similar to Weavel.

6) Sylux is a male human, a possible survivor of the Space Pirate attack on K-2L who blames the Federation for being too slow to respond to the attack.

7) Sylux is a Cylosian that has been wronged in some way by the Federation, and has interacted with Samus before the events of Hunters. Alternatively, Sylux could have been hired by Cylosians, or sent by Cylosian commanders to seize Federation technology and use it to bring the Federation down. At some point, Sylux may have been sold out by the Cylosians, which would explain the presence of Galactic Federation Marines on the planet.

We must surmise that the appearance of GF Marines on the planet indicates that either the Federation is looking for the stolen tech on the planet, that Cylosis is under Federation control, or that it is in Federal space. The presence of the Soldiers on the planet, assuming that Cylosis is the planet portrayed in Sylux's cutscene, may be a result of Cylosian authorisation.

The planet Cylosis is either:
A) A wintry planet due to its distance from a star.
B) A result of a catastrophe on a planetary scale that caused the surface to become desolate.
C) The cutscene Sylux appears in is set in the polar regions, the furthest away from any Cylosian metropolises, where Federation technology is stored. Or perhaps, Sylux decides to stage an attack in the area due to the adverse weather, which could disrupt the signals of Federal soldiers.
