Down the Tracks - a work in progress“And from this day forward, I, Pete Theodor Boomer, will be the Controller of the NWR Main Line!”
Everyone staggers in shock. How can this happen? What happened to Sir Hatt? Everyone questions the boards motives.
Boomer quiets down the crowd, “As first order, everything needs to evolve. This railway will no longer use - the power of steam.”
A sudden uproar surges out of the crowd, “Why? You can’t do such a thing! There are more steam engines on the island than diesel! That’s not the point of the North Western!”
Boomer softly grins, “You need to see, that steam is out of date. No one is making them anymore. Why hold on to - such an old technology? The only way to survive is to evolve. Starting in three days, every single steam engine will be replaced with a diesel of the same caliber, as if there is no change. Now, we will start from the top of the order: the Ffarquhar Branch Line. Make your time count.”

Felidae Regioners - WoestynThe Desert – Woestyn
These cats are the “smallest” of the region and the leanest, only half a head shorter than the plain cats. They are divided into two groups: Diggers or Hunters. They live under ground to escape from the fierce heat and cold. They will all ways have a speckled spotted pelt unless noted, striped tail with a lighter tip, striped legs up to elbow, a dorsal stripe, lighter underbelly, white “eyes” on the back of their darker colored ears, and a stripe running from their eyes down to their nose. They are known to be the fastest runners and excellent diggers due to their claws being similar to the Titis’ of the forest and the Huils (wild dogs) of the desert.

Pre Prolouge - Project FelidaeProject Felidae
Subjects A-D are considered dangerous and too wild for the Homo Saipan DNA to over throw.
Test subjects from “E1-E50” are stable. “F23” has shown aggression towards the keepers. Protocols are put into place to ensure the re taming of “F23.” We are preparing for the “F” series.
The “F” series has started to show results of the gene splicing. “F1” – Panthera leo/Domestic Felis catus– has grown rapidly the past 7 days of surveillance. This must be a defult from the Panthera leo. “F1” will be considered too large for the “field tests.” The “1” series must be reworked to ensure the Domestic Felis catus is the dominant donor.
The “F” series was faulty and considered a failed start to the gene splicing. The Felis “F1” to “F6” have g
