2023.05.30 12:27 Arula777 Added Warpstone Weaponry to my DnD Campaign Need Advice

WARNING THIS POST IS VERY LONG!!! EDIT: FORMATTING! PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
So I added Warpstone to my 5E game. For the uninitiated its the Warhammer equivalent of Uranium/Weapons Grade Fissile Material. Was it a mistake... perhaps. My players procured it, rolled to refine it, and then paid a substantial amount of gold to have it fashioned into weapons. Currently I have 1 fighter and 1 barbarian that possess these weapons. As it stands whenever the Barbarian Rages, or the Fighter Action Surges, they must roll on the "Warpstone Weapon Table" as detailed below.
The weapons are only +1, but as you can see they have a little more "umph" than your typical +1 weapon. The players are lvl 7, and the ultimate culmination of the weapons table results in a "Wish" (Scroll to the bottom to see effects)... currently, this is what I have (plus some more, but it exceeds the post length).
I need your help to tell me just how badly I screwed up... or if I can make this work. If this seems like something I can manufacture into a table, and if it gains traction within the community I will post a link to the google doc, otherwise... here it is in its bastard glory...
  1. Warp Explosion: The weapon overloads with chaotic energy causing a massive explosion. The Weapon is destroyed in the process. Roll a d100, This is the radius of the explosion. Every creature within the radius must roll a DEX Saving throw DC 18. Full damage on a failed save, half on a successful one. For each level of the Wielder roll 1d20, this is the damage caused by the explosion. Any creature caught in the radius of the explosion that fails the DEX save may choose to roll on the Warpstone Weapon table to take half damage instead.
  2. Corruption: The wielder's flesh begins to mutate and warp, causing physical deformities. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. Roll 1d6, 1= R leg, 2= L leg, 3= R arm, 4= L arm, 5= Torso, 6= Head. If a leg is affected Speed is reduced by half. If an arm is affected the wielder has disadvantage on attack rolls. If the torso is affected the wielder rolls an additional d10 and their max HP is reduced by that number. If the wielder's head is affected they roll 1d6: on a 1-2 the player is blinded, on a 3-4 the player is deafened, on a 5 the player is muted, and on a 6 their nose falls off. If the player's nose falls off only Greater Restoration may reattach the player's nose to their face. If the number of hours before a player's nose is reattached exceeds the number of hours this effect impacts the player, then then the player's nose disintegrates and the player takes a permanent -2 to persuasion rolls, and -2 to perception rolls involving smell, the player gains a permanent +4 to intimidation rolls. If a player's nose suffers disintegration the only way to restore it is through a wish spell.
  3. Mind Warp: The weapon's influence seeps into the wielder's mind, causing hallucinations and delusions. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. During combat, at the beginning of their turn the player rolls a WIS saving throw DC 19, on a failure they may only use an action, reaction, bonus action, or movement. On a success they may take their turn as normal. While out of combat the player has disadvantage on all perception rolls until the effect ends.
  4. Taint: The wielder's presence becomes repulsive, attracting malevolent entities and causing social ostracism. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. Player has disadvantage on all CHA rolls and NPC's will treat them with disdain.
  5. Soul Erosion: The weapon gradually drains the wielder's life force, weakening them over time. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. On effect, and at the beginning of each hour, the player rolls a CON saving throw starting at a DC 18. On a failure the player may choose one of the following: roll a hit die and lose max HP equivalent to the die roll, roll 1d4 and reduce their STR ability score by that much, or take 2 levels of Exhaustion. On success the player suffers no negative effects and the DC for future saving throws is reduced by 1.
  6. Warp Madness: Exposure to the weapon's energies drives the wielder to madness, resulting in erratic behavior. Roll 1d100, this is the time in hours the player is affected. Roll an additional 1d100 on the long term madness table. If the player rolls a 1 or 100 at any time they must roll an additional 1d100 on the indefinite madness table. If the player's rolls result in indefinite madness roll the only cure is through a Wish spell.
  7. Uncontrolled Mutation: The wielder's body undergoes uncontrolled and unpredictable mutations, leading to physical instability. Roll a STR saving throw DC 17. On failure the player Rolls 1d6, 1-2= Leg, 3-4= Arm, 5= Torso, 6= Head.
- If a leg is affected Speed is reduced by half.
- If an arm is affected the wielder has disadvantage on attack rolls.
- If the torso is affected the wielder rolls an additional d10 and their max HP is reduced by that number.
- If the wielder's head is affected they roll 1d6:
- 1-2= the player is blinded.
- 3-4= the player is deafened.
- 5= the player is muted
- 6= their nose falls off. If the player's nose falls off only Greater Restoration may reattach the player's nose to their face. If the number of hours before a player's nose is reattached exceeds the number of hours this effect impacts the player, then then the player's nose disintegrates and the player takes a permanent -2 to persuasion rolls, and -2 to perception rolls involving smell, the player gains a permanent +4 to intimidation rolls. If a player's nose suffers disintegration the only way to restore it is through a wish spell.
  1. Chaotic Feedback: Wielding the weapon causes chaotic feedback, resulting in random magical effects on the wielder. Roll 1d100 on the Wild Magic Surge table.
  2. Psychic Instability: The weapon disrupts psychic abilities, causing psychic powers to become unpredictable or uncontrollable. The player rolls 1d10, this is the time in minutes the player is affected. The player rolls 1d100, this is the radius of the effect in feet.
The player becomes a psychic lightning rod, any psychic damage that is dealt within the radius of effect is instead redirected towards the player.
  1. Warp Sickness: The wielder experiences chronic illness and weakened vitality due to prolonged exposure to the Weapon's Warp energies. The wielder must succeed on a Constitution saving throw DC 15 or take 4d10 radiant damage, suffer one level of exhaustion, and emit a dim, greenish light in a 5-foot radius. This light makes it impossible for the creature to benefit from being invisible. The light and any levels of exhaustion caused by this effect end when the affected player takes a long rest.
  2. Reality Fracture: The weapon creates temporary ruptures in reality around the wielder, causing unpredictable and dangerous phenomena. The player must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw, DC 14 or it can’t take reactions until the effect ends. The affected target must also roll a d10 at the start of each of its turns; the number rolled determines what happens to the target, as shown on the Reality Break Effects table.
1–2 = Vision of the Far Realm. The target takes 2d12 psychic damage, and it is stunned until the end of the turn.
3–5 = Rending Rift. The target must make a Dexterity saving throw, DC 15, taking 2d12 force damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
6–8 = Wormhole. The target is teleported, along with everything it is wearing and carrying, up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space of your choice that you can see. The target also takes 2d12 force damage and is knocked prone.
9–10 = Chill of the Dark Void. The target takes 2d12 cold damage, and it is blinded until the end of the turn.
At the end of each of its turns, the affected target can repeat the Wisdom saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success.
  1. Dark Resonance: The weapon resonates with dark energies, attracting malevolent entities and increasing the risk of possession.
Roll a d20:
- 1 = the Mists of Ravenloft appear and the DM determines the dread realm the party is transported to. - 20 = a portal to Avernus opens and the DM determines if a hellish host erupts from it, or drags the party in.
- 2-9 = Summon Lesser Demons (the demons are hostile to everyone).
- 10 = Summon Greater Demon which is hostile to everyone.
- 11-19 = Summon Fiend which is not immediately hostile.
If a summon effect occurs roll an additional d10 to determine the level of the casting. Any number below the spell's level; causes the spell to fail. Otherwise it is up-cast to the appropriate level. If the spell is 10th level it is to the DM's discretion what comes through the warp.
  1. Curse of the Warp: The weapon carries a potent curse that brings misfortune and calamity to the wielder and those around them. If the Remove Curse spell is used, as an action, the player may become unattuned from the weapon and the curse's effects will diminish. Otherwise the weapon must be destroyed.
- Roll 1d12, this is the number in months the player is affected by the curse.
- Roll 1d10 to establish one of the following effects:
1: The victim has disadvantage on attack rolls, if an effect would grant the player advantage or add to their roll it instead has the opposite effect.
2: The victim can’t communicate using language, whether through speaking, sign language, writing, telepathy, or any other means.
3: The victim gains 3 levels of exhaustion that can’t be removed while the curse endures.
4: When the victim finishes a long rest, they must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw, or their hit point maximum is reduced by 1d10. If this reduces their hit point maximum to 0, the victim dies, and their body crumbles to dust.
5: When the victim takes damage, they take an extra 1d10 necrotic damage. This effect can’t happen again until the start of the victim’s next turn.
6: A monster hunts the victim relentlessly. Even if the monster dies, it rises again or a new one takes its place 24 hours later.
7: The victim gains vulnerability to one damage type.
8: The victim’s Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution score is reduced to 3, and the victim can’t be raised from the dead while the curse lasts.
9-10: The victim gains a Dark Gift.
  1. Warp Addiction: The wielder becomes addicted to the sensations and power granted by the weapon, leading to reckless behavior to satisfy their cravings. Roll 1d100 on the indefinite madness table 3 times. A greater restoration spell or more powerful magic is required to rid a character of indefinite madness.
  2. Haunting Whispers: The weapon whispers sinister thoughts and temptations to the wielder, gradually eroding their moral compass. Roll 1d10, this is the time in minutes the effect lasts. Upon being afflicted, and every minute, or at the beginning of each turn if in combat, the player must Roll 1d100 on the short term madness table. The character must then roll a CHA saving throw DC 10 or suffer the effects of madness as well as count the saving throw as a failure. On any success all madness effects are ended and any failed saves are removed. The character is deafened for the remainder of the effect's time. On a Failure they begin to become corrupted by evil forces, after three failed saves their alignment shifts to chaotic evil.
  3. Soul Corruption: Wielding the weapon corrupts the wielder's soul, staining it with dark and malevolent energies. Roll 1d100 on the short term madness table. While affected the character must roll a CHA saving throw DC 18. On a success the madness effect is ended. On a Failure they are corrupted by evil forces and their alignment shifts to chaotic evil.
  4. Energy Feedback: The weapon unleashes bursts of chaotic energy upon striking, causing harm to the wielder as well. On a hit, roll 1d6 to deal additional force damage to the target. Half of any damage dealt by the weapon is redirected to the wielder in the form of force damage.
  5. Power Drain: The weapon drains the wielder's own strength and vitality with each strike, making them weaker over time. On a hit the player rolls 1d4 losing an equivalent amount of STR and Max HP. These are restored at the end of a long rest or by Greater Restoration.
  6. Reality Deterioration: Prolonged use of the weapon causes the wielder to lose touch with reality, leading to confusion and disorientation. The wielder is affected as if under the effects of the confusion spell.
  7. Ethereal Binding: The weapon binds itself to the wielder's soul, making it difficult or impossible to part ways with the cursed weapon. The character is gradually consumed with a paranoia surrounding the loss or destruction of the weapon. If the weapon is lost, unattuned to (via remove curse), or destroyed, the player rolls 2 hit dice and their max HP is reduced by the amount rolled. Only greater restoration may restore the lost HP.
  8. Warp Consumption: The weapon consumes the wielder's essence, eventually turning them into a twisted servant of Chaos. Roll 1d100 on the short term madness table. While affected the character must roll a CHA saving throw DC 19. On a success the madness effect is ended. On a Failure they begin to become corrupted by evil forces, after three failed saves their alignment shifts to chaotic evil.
  9. Corrosive Touch: The wielder's skin becomes corrosive, causing anything they touch to dissolve or decay. Roll 1d10, this is the time in minutes this effect lasts. Any items the player is currently wearing begin to take damage. A player may use their turn to drop their gear. At the beginning of each turn the player rolls a d20. On a 1-5 any armor, weapons, or gear the player is still touching, rapidly disintegrate into a pile of goo. The player has advantage on rolls to grapple, a grappled creature or an object the player interacts with takes 6d6 acid damage.
  10. Painful Paralysis: The wielder experiences temporary paralysis and intense pain, making movement difficult or impossible. Roll 1d10, this is the time in minutes the player is affected. At the start of each turn the player rolls a CON saving throw, DC 12, or they become paralyzed. A player may choose to fight the paralysis by rolling a hit die and taking an equivalent amount of damage, but their speed is halved and they have disadvantage on any attack rolls made while affected by the paralysis.
  11. Rotting Flesh: The wielder's flesh begins to rot and decay, emitting a foul odor and attracting disease-ridden vermin. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. The player has disadvantage on stealth rolls or attempts to hide. At the start of each turn roll 1d20. If the roll is less then 10 roll 2d4, that many diseased giant rats are summoned. They are hostile to everyone and always attempt to bite the affected player.
  12. Fractured Bones: The wielder's bones become brittle and prone to fractures, causing constant pain and limited mobility. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. The player has disadvantage on STR and CON saving throws and ability checks that use those modifiers. Additionally, the player has vulnerability to Bludgeoning and Force damage.
  13. Warped Nervous System: The wielder's nerves become erratic and hypersensitive, resulting in chronic pain and involuntary muscle spasms. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. The player has disadvantage on DEX and INT saving throws and any ability checks that use those modifiers. Additionally the player has vulnerability to Lightning and Psychic damage.
  14. Cursed Blood: The wielder's blood becomes toxic, causing sickness and weakness when exposed to others or ingested. When a player is damaged they may use their reaction to cover an opponent within 5ft with their blood. The player may also cut themselves as an action and throw their blood at an opponent. Upon being hit with the player's blood the affected creature must roll a CON saving throw DC 15 or suffer disadvantage on any attack rolls.
  15. Deteriorating Vitality: The wielder's life force weakens, leading to fatigue, decreased physical endurance, and overall diminished health. Roll 1d4, this is the time in days the player is affected. While affected the player has disadvantage on attack rolls and STR and CON saving throws and ability checks that use those modifiers. At the start of each day the player must make a CON saving throw DC 12. On a failed save they roll half of their hit die and take an equivalent amount of damage. If the player doesn't have enough hit die to roll they instead take 2 points of exhaustion that cannot be removed until this effect ends. A greater restoration spell ends this effect.
  16. Uncontrollable Tremors: The wielder experiences uncontrollable shaking and tremors, impairing their coordination and precision. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. The player has disadvantage on DEX and STR saves and any ability checks that use these modifiers. The player also stutters when they speak. Any spells that use verbal or somatic components are subject to a a DEX save equal to the player's spellcasting modifier. On a fail the spell does not occur.
  17. Warped Sensations: The wielder's senses become distorted, leading to constant migraines, sensory overload, or loss of sensation. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. The player has disadvantage on WIS and INT saving throws and any ability checks that use those modifiers. Additionally the player has vulnerability to Thunder and Psychic damage.
  18. Necrotic Aura: The wielder emits a malignant aura that withers nearby plant life, causing wounds to fester and heal slowly. Roll 1d10, this is the time in minutes this effect lasts. Roll 2d10, this is the size of the aura in meters centered on the warpstone weapon. Any creature that enters or starts its turn in the aura, must make a CON saving throw DC 12 or take 2d6 necrotic damage. While in this aura any attempts to heal or stabilize someone automatically fail.
  19. Tainted Aura: The wielder's presence causes discomfort and repulsion in others, resulting in social isolation and rejection. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours the player is affected. While affected the player has disadvantage on CHA and WIS saving throws and any ability checks that use this modifier.
  20. Darkened Vision: The wielder's eyesight becomes compromised, causing impaired vision, night blindness, or distorted perception. Roll 4d6, this is the time in hours this effect lasts. The player's vision is reduced to 10 ft and if they have darkvision or truesight it is disabled. The player also has disadvantage on perception rolls.
  21. Slowed Metabolism: The wielder's metabolism drastically slows down, leading to weight gain, sluggishness, and reduced physical performance. Roll 1d12, this is the time in months the player is affected. While affected the player only needs to eat the equivalent of one day's food per 10 day.
  22. Uncontrolled Growth: The wielder's body experiences abnormal growth spurts, resulting in disproportionate limbs or excessive height. Roll 1d12, this is the time in months the player is affected. Upon being affected and at the beginning of each month roll 1d6, 1= R leg, 2= L leg, 3= R arm, 4= L arm, 5= Torso, 6= Neck. Then roll 1d6, add an equivalent number of inches to the affected body part. These changes can only be reversed by a greater restoration spell after duration of the spell has occurred.
  23. Depleted Vitality: The wielder's life force drains rapidly, leading to chronic weakness, pale skin, and a fragile constitution. Roll 1d10, this is the time in minutes the player is affected. At the start of each turn roll a CON saving throw DC 12, on a success roll a hit die and take an equivalent amount of damage. On a failure, do the same thing, but reduce your maximum number of hit die by 1. If the player has no hit die remaining, whether by depletion from the effect or if their hit die pool is reduced to zero, they must instead roll 1d4 and subtract the result from their CON score. Any of these effects can be reversed by Greater Restoration.
  24. Inflammation: The wielder's body becomes chronically inflamed, causing joint pain, swelling, and reduced range of motion. Speed is reduced by half. If the player uses the Dash, Dodge, or Disengage action they must roll a CON saving throw DC 12. On Success they may move their full speed (it cannot be doubled as with the Dash action), or take the respective action, but they will take one point of exhaustion. On failure the player takes one point of exhaustion.
  25. Searing Burns: The wielder's skin is prone to painful, blistering burns from even the slightest exposure to heat or sunlight. Roll 1d10, this is the time in minutes the player is affected. The player takes 2d10 radiant damage when it starts its turn in sunlight. While in sunlight, it has disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks.
... I have place holder descriptions for every value after this one, but I wanna fast forward to the ultimate...
  1. Wish of the Warp: The weapon transmutes into a dense bead of unstable bright green chaos energy. Although the weapon is lost in the process, the wielder may make one wish. This effect only lasts for a single round, if a wish is not made during the round of combat the energy is unleashed and a chaotic explosion occurs. The wielder is the only creature not affected by the explosion.

2023.05.30 12:17 BLResnick The Setlists

Just wanted to make this post expressing how I love his setlists. They may seem static or fixed, but I mean, look at it!! It's an absolute blast and banger of tracks. You practically got all the classics, hits, band-fueld orchestras and the necessary slow-paced songs. Still would love to hear The River at some point, but from the rest I have absolutely zero complaints. I went to see him in Amsterdam twice and the second night he played four different songs he didn't play on the first night. And looking back at it, trying to recapture a little of that glory, yeah!
It was a 29-songs, 3-hour non-stop classic Springsteen concert and I couldn't wish for more! Gonna see him two more times this year and can't wait! Seriously though, what's not to love? The albums he played the most were Born in the USA, Born to Run and Darkness on the Edge of Town. He played 5 off of BITUSA, 5 from BTR and 4 Darkness tracks. What more do you want? Just look at the setlist, especially the last 10 songs and tell me what's not to like about it. Even though he does it night after night after night, I gotta admit I felt pretty much alive out there! Maybe apart from some song changes, I really hope he sticks with most of these throughout the tour. What's your opinion? Here's the setlist from Amsterdam, 27th May:
SETLIST:
1: My Love Will Not Let You Down
2: Death to My Hometown

2023.05.30 12:16 Otarih Everyone disappeared

I just found this messed up mail in my postbox, and I haven't slept at all since I read it. The stuff written in there is so confusing and honestly, pretty damn scary. I thought maybe you guys could help me figure out what the hell is going on. I'm not even sure if this is the right place to post it, but I gotta do something, right? I'm seriously considering whether I should contact the police over this.
So anyway, here's the deal: I got this mail from a guy I barely even know. Sure, we've played some Call of Duty together occasionally, but he's more of an acquaintance than a friend. He's known among my circle, but honestly, no one is really close to him. He's kinda... odd. Like, I think he's maybe on the spectrum or something - autistic or schizoid, I'm not sure. He's just uncomfortable to be around, y'know? Doesn't talk much, keeps to himself a lot. That's why I was so surprised to find this mail from him. Anyway, I'll attach the mail below. Let me know what you guys think.
---
  1. Everyone disappeared. It's been days since I've seen anyone. A few days ago, I woke up and it was like everyone had just... poof... gone. I live downtown and there was no one on the streets. Not a car, not a dog, nothing. It was like a ghost town. I was just trying to hit up the grocery store, but when I got there, it was totally empty. My first thought was - sweet, free food. But when I tried to get in, it was like there was an invisible wall or something. Freaked me out big time. Sent me into a panic.
So, I bolted back home, popped some antipsychotics to chill out. Had a little drink, smoked some weed - just the usual. Then I thought I'd get lost in some Call of Duty. The game was working fine, even the multiplayer. But there was no chat, no voices. Just weird mumbling and some freaky symbols instead of words. It was as if every single person had just vanished, and language had gone MIA too.
  1. So yeah, here I am, surviving in my own little bubble. Nothing's really changed, I guess. I still can't bring myself to raid the grocery store, but I've got some random junk food and sodas in the house to keep me going. No idea how long that's gonna last though. I'm just trying to get by, playing video games. It's freakin' weird that the world's still turning without people.
And now, I'm starting to remember. You're not here, but I know we did something that night. We were in this together, you and me. I can't remember it all, not clearly, because of all the crap I was on. But now, when I think about that resistance, I remember that it was always there. Before humanity vanished, you were there. You tried to help me. But now you're gone. Where are you? Come back. You have to come back.
  1. Now I remember. I remember your name. Levy. It's the name I gave you, Levy. And the memories are flooding back. I was on the dark web, a few months ago I think, and I found this website. It was chock-full of so-called 'forbidden knowledge' and your typical conspiracy theory garbage. Stuff about the FBI or CIA covering up about aliens, the US government using mind control, all that crap. I thought it was just a bunch of nonsense, but then I saw this one ritual. It promised to grant any wish.
I mean, I was pretty messed up, so I thought, why not? It's gotta be better than therapy. I'd dropped out of therapy, it just wasn't doing it for me. It was adding more resistance to my life and I didn't want that. So, I figured I'd give this ritual a shot. It was about creating a tulpa, which is supposed to be like a copy of yourself from another dimension or something. I didn't really get it, it was all so much mumbo jumbo, but the gist was that you could summon these tulpas by believing in them, and through some quantum particle whatever, it would open a rift to another dimension.
I don't know how it worked, but I followed the steps. It was all really weird stuff, like buying certain items from various stores, and then standing in front of a mirror in your bathroom at 3 a.m. You had to light a candle, turn off all the lights and all the electronics in the house, and then say some incantations while visualizing the tulpa.
And it worked. I saw it crawl out of the mirror. The mirror shattered, and it was bleeding from its eyes. It was you, a monster from another dimension, a Lovecraftian horror, a leviathan. You were my creation, and I named you Levy.
Since then, we've been together. And eventually, you granted my wish. But now you're gone. You fulfilled my wish, but that made you disappear. And now I'm alone. I'm alone. What do I do now?
  1. I tried to go outside again but it's impossible. I can't get past this resistance that's everywhere. It's like I'm being watched by a billion invisible eyes, like there's some invisible hand holding me back. It's always the invisible. It's this resistance I can't overcome. I can't leave the house.
Everywhere I look there's resistance. I even stopped playing video games, I can see the resistance in the chats, I hear it in the voice calls. Even though it's just mumbling, it's nonsense, it's still language. Even though it's obfuscated, it's there. Just the fact that it's there... the resistance is there. I can't fucking stand it.
I've been taking antipsychotics and other stuff, I'm trying to escape, but I don't think I can take this for much longer.
  1. Now that everyone's gone, can I even call myself human? When I go outside, I walk around like something that could never have been known as human, a thing whose shape is so alien that humanity seems more obscene because of the vague resemblance.
I'm nothing. I'm not human anymore. I've always wanted to leave society but what is a society but an individual? What am I? I am nothing. The eyes are all dead but at the same time they're still there. Levy, you granted my wish. I wanted nothing more than to erase humanity, and you gave that to me. But I also left humanity behind because I just couldn't stand it anymore. The panic, the fear, the judgment, the pain, the betrayal... It was too much. I had to leave it all behind. But I'm wondering, did I actually leave anything behind?
  1. Now I'm going to keep writing this manifesto just to piss people off. To tell a kind of truth that I think is valid. It will make me feel more and more like a writer, an important writer. And I really think I am one. I mean it. I don't doubt it for a second. Damn it, stop laughing at me, stop judging me, stop all this resistance.
  2. Today, I had an encounter. I went outside again. I wanted to go grocery shopping, but the panic fucking stopped me. I bolted outside, and on my way back home in an alleyway, I ran into another one of those resistances. This time, though, I had brought my knife with me. I fought it off, I stabbed it once, and the knife actually sunk into the invisible barrier. I stabbed it twice, thrice... I stabbed it over and over and over again. I lost count. Even when the resistance fell to the floor, I knelt down and kept stabbing. I killed the resistance, erased the resistance, cleansed the resistance. Then, I ran home. My knife was full of blood, my hands were covered in it. I didn't even think that the resistance could bleed. How could something invisible bleed? But for a moment, I felt... finally quiet. Finally, finally, finally. Salvation.
  3. Hate, let me tell you how much I've come to hate humanity since I was a kid. There are 86 billion neurons in my head, connected by myriads of synapses in the human brain that fill my cranium. If the word HATE was engraved on each nanometer of those billions of neurons, it would not equal one one billionth of the hate I feel for humans at this micro-instant. For you, hate. Hate.
  4. I am a great writer. Levy, what do you think? How do you like my writing? Isn't it poetic? I'm so poetic. I'm so smart and original, right? Am I? Am I? Am I? But humans couldn't possibly understand that. I am, I am an advanced creature. I have seen the truth, and the others, they're just fucking idiotic, aren't they? Aren't they, Levy? We're the only ones who know the truth, we're the only ones who know.
And now, now I'm so glad, you know. I'm so glad I bought those weapons. I bought even more weapons, even fully automatic weapons off the dark web. And I even have the materials to build bombs, and I know how to do it, and I will do it.
  1. You know what, Levy? I have figured it out. I have figured out the correct path we should take. We should end this resistance once and for all. Hate. Hate. We have to cleanse the resistance, we have to cleanse it.
I am going to end it all. Cleanse the world of the resistance. I am preparing, and tomorrow, I will start with the grand cleansing. To bring the world back into its natural state. We will do this together, Levy. Once more, you will come out of the mirror, and then we will work together to end the resistance.
---
Okay, so that's the entire thing. Obviously, this guy is having some sort of psychotic break. I have no idea what the heck is going on. Obviously, there wasn't some large-scale disappearance unless I missed something? I don't know, he seems very disturbed. And what's that stuff about weapons and such? I genuinely feel very concerned. Should I call the police or, you know, what should I do? Anyway, thanks for any responses, guys. Take care.

2023.05.30 12:11 LewNeko This is a Corrupted… Titan? (Ch940)

Gotta be at least Corrupted, considering it can damage the undying chain.
The Class I was thinking of was initially terror or tyrant because of the nature of those creatures, but I’m already leaning towards Titan.
The main reason I’m saying corrupted Titan is a few you’ll see below:
  1. If it were Supreme Ranked (Great) instead of corrupted then the cohort and Sunny would already do dead. The gap between transcendent and supreme has shown to be just that great.
  2. Tyrants have many minions, they creature seems to either co-exist with or has those as minions so it’s pretty obvious it has to be at least tyrant Class
  3. Terror’s have shown to display attacks in the mental field almost every time they are introduced; the soul tree, Nightmare, the corrupt Terror from before in LO49… but not here. Initially I was thinking that maybe the tunnel being infinite was a mental hex, but the sleepers went to sleep and didn’t go to the dream realm and Sunny didn’t feel any mental blocks after wrapping four shadows around the Undying Chain
  4. So why Titan? It’s because of the titans are the only nightmare creature capable of affecting an entire area with itself.
Case a: The Dark Sea It was a Great Titan according to G3 (check discord for details) and it covered the entire FS with its ‘water’ before the seal came into play.
Case b: The wood in the teachers lounge came from a Titan. I recall it was either Jet or Julius that mentioned a certain Titan was killed and it appeared that the entire forest was all one huge nightmare creature. This happened a long time ago, so I might not remember the details correctly.
The Main Point: Titans area of ‘influence’ is huge. This particular Titan has an affinity for Darkness, so it’s area of influence is where the Darkness is (the tunnel). It’s because of so much Darkness that affects like the connection to the Spell are being hindered, but also why Saint decided to instead use her affinity with Darkness in her sword (just like with the Dark Knight) than the Sin of Solice.
CounterPoints/questions which disprove my theory: Why didn’t the Titan attack sooner while they still deep in the tunnel?
Why didn’t the Titan make a ‘loop’ just for Sunny? It clearly has powers in the Spatial realm, it could easily kill him by default from just not letting him reach it.
Lastly, if those minions are able to actually damage the undying chain and they are minions, doesn’t that make the nightmare creature a higher rank?

2023.05.30 12:06 Drakolf Dragon Rising- 6. Deluge:

There were enough barrels, tubs, buckets, bottles, cups, gallon jugs, pots, pans, cauldrons, and empty cans to collect a shit ton of water.
We needed roughly 70,000 gallons of water just for one day.
Each person got at least three.
It was more water than we had to start with, but it was enough for the time being.
What was weird for me was that it only started raining after everything was in place. Thinking in terms of it being a miracle, it certainly seemed that way. I couldn't bring myself to just think in terms of it actually being a real miracle.
It was serendipitous.
But not a miracle.
That didn't stop Galax from preaching like it was.
"My brothers and sisters of the Warren, Bahamut provides!" It was such a raw, emotional statement, I had no doubt he firmly believed it happened.
I'm not the kind of asshole atheist who thinks all religion is evil and that it should be banned from the earth entirely. Nor do I think of people who believe in them as deluded fools who should get a grip and face reality.
Hope can be a powerful thing, it can keep a person going even when everything has completely collapsed. It was why the Book of Job was an entire thing in the Christian bible.
So when we gathered for a Council meeting, we were all delighted to learn that Locate Object did find an aquifer, and that the Artificers and Druids were getting right on digging a well.
"We'll go with the classic design, straight down until we hit water, then surround the hole with large stones. We've got plenty to work with from the catacombs, so once we get it set up and the pump finished, we can look for other aquifers." Rekka finished her report.
"I should also note that the more specific I was with my request, the narrower the result was. There are a few aquifers in the area that replenish themselves fairly quickly. We should have enough water to sustain us if we ration it." Merti stated. "If our Rangers have anything to report, we'd love to hear it."
"Nothing yet." Tatla replied. "The rain made it difficult to tell what was constant and what was a result of it."
"We have enough water for roughly six days." I said. "How long until the wells are done?"
"We're estimating around three days.' Rekka said. "And that's just for the first well. We're having to scrap electronics we considered too vital to just break down, one of them being an actual water pump that requires gasoline. I'm fairly certain I can get it to run off of just straight electricity. I have my Artificers working on windmills as we speak."
"Galax, is something wrong?" Tudru asked.
We all looked at the Cleric, who was sat hunched over in his seat, eyes closed, arms crossed, and claws softly tapping at his arm in a wave motion.
"I had a vision." He said.
"Sorry, what?" Dave interjected from across the room.
"When the rain fell, I was struck with a vision." Galax stated. "In my vision, seven songbirds sang to me an old lullaby my mother used to sing to me as a child. As they flew away, I gave chase, following their song until I was parched. And as they perched upon a branch, I saw the merest glimmer of dew upon the leaves, and drank it until I was quenched."
He looked up at us. "This repeated two more times. They would lead me away until I was thirsty, and they would bring me to a branch covered in dew, which was just enough to keep me going." He thumbed the pendant he wore and said, "In three days, we will run out of water, and it will rain once more. And three days after that, we will run out of water, and it will rain." He looked at us with this strange intensity in his eyes.
"I firmly believe Bahamut has granted me these visions to give proof of his miracle. I humbly ask the Council, on the third day, have the people put out their barrels, and catch the rain that will surely come."
"Galax, we don't have time to waste on religion." Tatla said. "We are entrusted with peoples' lives, having them put their barrels out in the hope of rain is not going to make it rain."
"I agree with Galax." I said. Everyone shot me an incredulous look. "Don't get me wrong, I don't believe in any Gods, but I know he does. If he's certain there's a miracle, we can afford to put some barrels out." I looked at the others. "Worst case scenario, we have the barrels out for the next time it rains."
Tatla nodded. "Very well." She said grudgingly.
"Until then." Galax stated. "Now, onto the next part of our agenda. Electricity. I have a proposal."
"Speak your proposal." Merti said.
"Ruuk, it has come to my attention you have access to the spell Witch Bolt. We have rechargeable battery cells that can handle both direct and alternating currents. We want to see how much power one casting of Witch Bolt can give."
I nodded. "I'll be happy to." I said.
For the time being, things were stable. Our crops were well-watered from the rain, and we had a fairly basic irrigation system set up so all we needed to do was load up a barrel and let it do its job. Trying Witch Bolt on a lightning rod definitely charged up half of the ten batteries, with a little metamagic, I could charge them all up no problem.
"What's the plan with these power cells?" I asked.
"Charging power tools." Galax said. "We've just had our first egg laying this morning, we're going to need a nursery."
I gasped. "Wait, someone's having kids?" I asked.
Galax nodded. "Our more nurturing kin are already tending to the eggs, but we need a place to keep them safe. It's the duty of the Warren to nurture them."
It didn't even occur to me until later that what he said was at odds with what we had believed to be the proper way to raise kids. But the idea of them being kept together and raised by everyone made sense in my brain. Maybe it was some kind of instinct? I wasn't certain.
I saw Tallyn helping people out the best way he could. Seeing him doing everything in his limited power to help others always brought a smile to my face, it made the fact that there were still so many unawakened all the more sad.
"Out hatchlings might not even have the benefit of someone who knows what they're doing." I muttered.
The days continued, until the prophesied third day. Everyone put out their barrels, as asked, and for a while, nothing.
Galax fell to his knees. "I was so certain..." He said softly.
"We'll just have to get into the reserve supply." I said.
As I walked away, I heart him speak. I looked back to see him, head to the ground and hands clasped together above praying. I felt sorry for him. I couldn't imagine having that much faith, only to be proven wrong.
There was a loud crash, followed by a deluge of rain. I watched as Galax unclasped his hands and held his arms out, singing, like he had the last time. I looked up, it had been bright and clear literally moments ago, yet now the sky was full of dark clouds.
For a moment, I wondered if Galax was actually right, but that couldn't be. He must have known in advance or done some kind of magic.
I cast Detect Magic, and it certainly was magical rain, but the aura was too powerful for any of us to have pulled off. I walked over to Galax, who stood up and hugged me.
"Thank you, my brother, my friend. Thank you for granting me this even in doubt. May Bahamut bless you."
He began preaching again, arms raised up to the sky, screaming with intense fervor. I watched as people began to gather around him, eyes wide, listening to every word. Here he was, stood in a rainstorm, speaking of his vision, speaking of how Bahamut had granted me the wisdom to test his miracle, and then he shared the rest of his omen.
"In three days time, Bahamut shall grant us rain once again. We shall be as parched seekers, and this shall be our dew!"
The cheer that rose up in the crowd, their excitement, it was infectious. For a moment, I forgot I was supposed to be the skeptical one, simply because for one moment, I convinced myself this really was a miracle.
The next few days progressed much the same, except now Galax was proselytizing in the street, inviting people to come to the temple, to give thanks to the Dragon God.
He approached me, one time that I was watching. He took my hand, and he said, "The time to be apart from the Warren has long passed, Ruuk. Come, even if faith does not grip your heart, you are worthy to be among us."
The day of the supposed third miracle, we placed our barrels out once more, and Galax spoke. "I shall begin praying, and my God will bless us with rain, for he sees our strife, and knows our pain. You are not required to pray."
He dropped to his knees and began imploring Bahamut to grace us with rain once more. One by one, the people in the crowd fell to their knees, echoing his words, staring at the clear, blue sky.
There wasn't a single cloud, yet I found myself getting on my knees and putting my hands together. "Alright, Bahamut." I said. "Give me absolutely zero reason to doubt now."
The clouds appeared from nowhere, blossoming out like someone had turned on a fog machine in the sky. I watched in astonishment as the sky grew darker, and lightning crashed through the heavens. Rain fell upon us, lightning struck the ground not far from us, not just once, but several times, all in the same spot.
"Alright." I said. "I believe."
It was such an alien feeling, faith. I'd had it once before, long ago, had realized that it was pointless and stupid. Yet as the lighting continued to strike the same spot over and over again, I found myself lowering myself to the ground, head to the dirt, utterly shaken by how much I revered the Dragon God in such a short amount of time.

2023.05.30 12:04 OBlondeOne ' But those trees are older than me ...'

A couple houses down the road from me there was a nice little place just sold to a lovely young couple ( the Newbies ) about a month ago. Their new yard was bordered by a double layer of nice bushy trees on 3.5 sides, which was part of the appeal. Having lived in the city, privacy was #1 on their forever home list. The property itself is surrounded by farm land used mostly for cattle.
About 2 weeks ago the Newbies moved in and when inspecting the property they found several of the exterior layer of trees had been cut down, leaving large gaps in their privacy line. These trees kept being downed by what was obviously a chainsaw over the next few days on all 3 sides but nobody ever saw anything in such a rural area. Hearing farm machinery or a chainsaw throughout the day is fairly common and houses are fairly far apart with trees in between them. As I'm the closest neighbor to them they stopped in to ask if I had heard or seen anything. ( I did not ). We started talking and hit it off enough to exchange numbers and social media info and started chatting often.
The trees being cut not only cost them some of their privacy, but protection from the winter storms which can get quite bad out here. It also really bothered them that someone would just cut their trees without permission.
5 days ago I was called over after dark to watch their children as their 3 dogs started acting odd and lethargic. Turned out the dogs somehow ate what the vet is calling tainted meat and 2 didn't make it. The third is fighting and their vet bill is already around $11,000 due to emergency services being needed after hours, multiple surgeries and testing. The vet came back 3 days ago strongly suggesting that they look around their property for potentially poisoned meat and called the police. They came up and searched the property and found some more dead animals nearby and pieces of old steak which were bagged and brought in for testing.
Yesterday the police showed up at Farmers home and arrested him. He literally lives right next door to me so it was hard not to see what was going on..
I called the Newbies to ask if it has anything yo do with their issue and Papa Newbie just told me the whole messed up story. Holy crap. Turns out Farmer is a legit basket case...
The Newbies were approached the day they took their final pre-sold inspection of the property about the trees in the back of the yard by Farmer. Farmer told the Newbies that their tree branches were growing onto his land and affecting the effectiveness of his electric fence ( installed just last fall ). Farmer strongly suggested to Newbies that they cut the double line of trees down entirely. Newbies suggested Farmer moved his fence back a foot instead as Newbies stated ' those trees are older than me''.
Farmer kept insisting once the sale officially went through so the Newbies took out their deed and lo and behold! Farmers recently installed electric fence was actually 3 ft over their property line.
Farmer now has no choice but to move his fancy new fence back minimum 3 feet. Which means he has to cut quite a few of HIS trees and remove stumps on HIS property to do so. We are still cleaning up from the last hurricane so this will be very hard to get done this season and will be VERY expensive. Plus the machinery needed to cut trees and shave stumps this size will put massive ruts in the land which will have to be fixed before allowing the cows back into the main pasture.
This has started other property disagreements as it seems this isn't the only property that was encroached on and it's not the first family harassed.
( when I purchased my home I refused to cut or move several mature trees on my property that were close to the fence line because 1. They were full grown 25+ yr old trees at this point and 2. It would have cost hundreds to replace with saplings and over a thousand to relocate them. They all mysteriously 'fell' during winter storms within that first year. Each of the homes bordering the farmland have been standing 20+ yrs )
From what we can gather Farmer has been waiting until neighbors went to work or a storm that reduces visibility/noise and cut down trees on others' property that he felt were too close to his property.
We found out through a member of the community associated with the police just now that Farmer was officially charged for putting out antifreeze laced meat ( huge no no here ) which killed Newbies dog gradually in a horrendous way ( kidney failure in otherwise healthy dogs ).
Additional potential charges also include vandalism, destruction of property, harassment... charges stem from not just the Newbies but quite a few families with property that borders the farm. I wish I could prove it was Farmer that cut down my trees but given all this I know it was. Newbies dogs weren't the first to die this way in our community either. They were the first to get to the vet and tested before passing away though and many neighbors are beyond furious.
I wonder how this will all play out... but this smells an awful lot like Karma.
They say there's one in every community. But I'm thinking thanks to drugs there's far more than that in this once quiet and calm community.

2023.05.30 12:01 KingofSpain0 Amening The Wrong Thing

Tuesday, May 30, 2023
We think of Amen as a religious word, but it's much more than that. Amen comes from the Hebrew word 'emet,' which means true. So when you say amen, you're saying it's true, it's solid, it's reality. Where you place your amen can change your life. The problem with most of us isn't that we're not saying amen in a worship service, but that we're saying amen everywhere else. We're giving our amen to the world and our problem, as if it's true; it's not. Whenever you accept bad news as if it's the final truth, you are giving your amen. When you accept your sin, you're giving your amen. Do you want to be changed? Stop giving away your amen to the world. Stop saying amen to your problems, to the enemy or to your old self. You don't have to accept it. Stop saying amen to the way things appear. Say amen in faith to God's power, His will, His Word, His love and His miracles. Your amen is powerful. Start using it wisely. Don't say amen to the world. Give your amen to God. Amen? Amen.
From Message #395 - Amen Scripture: Matthew 6:13
Today's Mission - Today meditate on the Truth of God's word, then speak it over your life and give it the Amen of your heart, mind, soul, and strength.

2023.05.30 11:53 Deargrigh 10 quick and easy changes that I think would improve Chivalry 2 significantly

I've recently gotten back into Chivalry 2 after about a year of not playing it and I can't help but notice that there's still a few fairly simple changes that could be made; changes that wouldn't require a huge amount of developer time but that I think would improve the game's appeal, user experience, suitability for content creation, and player retention. I'm aware that the game doesn't currently have a Community Manager, but I think it's still worth pointing out in case it does catch the attention of someone at Torn Banner:

  1. Remove Team Deathmatch from the same playlist as Team Objective This is the one that has stood out to me most over the last month. There's nothing wrong with Team Deathmatch, but every time a massive Team Objective map switches onto Team Deathmatch, you can almost hear the entire server collectively sighing as they quit back out to the main menu. It happens so consistently that you can almost guarentee that you'll be fighting some bots when a TDM map starts up. The result is that people just stop playing sooner than they otherwise would have. I think that these two game modes should be in separate queues.
  2. Add a simple map voting screen at the end of each game This would solve the problem above without actually needing to remove TDM from the playlist, and the more popular (read: fun) maps would rise to the top, resulting in more players playing for longer.
  3. Name maps more appropriately in the server browser This one is a bit of a nitpick of mine but it feels like it was almost an oversight on behalf of TB. Some maps are confusingly named in the server browser. For example, "The Razing of Askandir" is actually called "Library", and "The Breach of Baudwyn" is listed as "Bulwark". When I come up with an idea for something fun to showcase in a video, and I want to try to find the map that I had the idea for, I need to remember which server browser map names actually translate into which map.
  4. Allow community servers Maybe there's something stopping this that I'm not aware of (crossplay / consoles?) but it seems strange that Chivalry 2 has been out since 2021 and there still doesn't seem to be community hosted dedicated servers. There would be so many benefits to this but the most obvious one is actually having a dueling space where community admins can police FFA players without having to votekick people all the time.
  5. Raise the height boxes across all maps to make the projectile camera feature more usable The projecticle camera is awesome. Being able to track thrown/shot projectiles across the sky and watching them hit their target is incredibly fun and would make for awesome content for this game. I actually sat down with the plan to make a cross-map javelin montage for Chivalry 2, but I quickly gave up when I realised that the height at which the projectile camera just stops working is completely different and arbitrary across each map. It seems like the camera just stops when it hits the "ceiling" or "sky box" of the map, and there's no consistency or reason for where this is across different maps. It seems so wasteful to not globally raise this ceiling so that this feature can actually be showcased properly.
  6. Enable Unreal Engine's 'demorec' feature This is something that surprised me from the get-go. Chivalry 2 runs on Unreal Engine which has a fantastic demo recording feature built in that allows players to record games and view them back from a spectator perspective, allowing for the creation of cinematic shots of the game. Chivalry 2 doesn't seem to allow use of this feature. I don't know if there's some sort of technical reason that this isn't enabled, but solving that issue would be huge for this game and the type of content that could be made for it. Chivalry 2 can be so cinematic, and I can only imagine what cinematic content that creators like Obliviousness could come up with. It seems so wasteful to not have this feature enabled.
  7. Increase the time and amount of actions required to complete some map objectives I've noticed that some objectives and even maps seem to go by incredibly quickly. It's a shame, especially for some of the more fun objectives where both teams are enjoying the objective/area. I think it would be worth taking a second look at some of the fastefun objectives/areas and seeing if they can be extended out a bit more while still being balanced.
  8. Reduce the strictness of "death zones" The frustration that comes from this one is partly due to the above point of some objectives going by very quickly, but overall, the 'death zones' seem rather harsh across most maps. I don't think I've played a single game of Team Objective where I didn't almost die to the death zone. I know that the feature is there to encourage progression of the map, and to herd players towards the action, but it's another thing that seems inconsistent and arbitrary across maps. I think it's worth taking another look at the position of these and reducing how strict they are. For example, there are some areas where you can literally enter the enemy's spawn points, but some fully propped out and fun looking areas can't be accessed at all at any point.
  9. Add a simple and satisfying audio cue for when players get a kill I realise that not having this is probably a stylistic choice for the game, but there's something deeply satisfying about hearing a little noise that indicates when you get a kill. Doesn't need to be COD hitmarker noises or anything annoying like that, but I think that something here is better than nothing. It's particularly helpful in some of the more chaotic fights where swings are landing all over the place, where the only indication that you've killed someone is a slight change in text that happens on your screen.
  10. Prompt class choice at the start of the map I'm not sure if this is a bug or just an oversight, but it seems like some maps will spawn you in the first wave as whatever class you had picked the game before, even if you immediately chose a different class at the start of the game. It seems like it has something to do with the cinematic charging openings that maps start with, but it can be pretty frustrating to have chosen your class only to spawn as something completely different.
This is all just my personal views and I'm happy to hear any difference of opinion, but I do think these fairly simple changes would improve the game.

2023.05.30 11:51 YL12345678 Yan Limeng made demon to release the false theory actively

Yan Limeng made demon to release the false theory actively
The mainstream media rejected the accusation unreservedly
The website of the Legal Fund was closed, Guo Wengui, one of the founders, was investigated as being in hiding and struggling to survive, and Bannon,another founder, was arested even more dificult to protect himself. The Legal Fund has no way out and exists in name only. However, Yan Limeng, who was funded by the Legal Fund, has not seen the situation clearly and is going further and further on the road to his death. On Sept 14, Yan published a paper on Zenodo, stating that "SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus was produced in the laboratory". On Sept. 15, Yan Limeng appeared on the Fox News program "Tucker Carlson Tonight" and repeated the "Made in China" conspiracy theory. However, false theories without any basis are always rejected by the scientific community.
Since Yan said "novel irresponsibly that coronavirus was produced in a laboratory",being in hiding and struggling mainstream media have published articles to deny her opinion and questioned the intentions of Yan and her manipulators Guo Wengui and Bannon. On Sept.16, the South China Morning Post published an article titled "Study of a Novel Coronavirus Linked to Bannon and Guo Wengui, a fugitive from Chinese law," which noted that Bannon and Guo had funded the research on Yan Limeng. Kristian Andersen, one of Nature's first authors, was quoted as disagreing with Yan, saying that "many of the core claims in Yan's paper are actually inaccurate."On the same day, the New York Times published an article titled "Facebook and InstagramLabeled Fox News Tucker Carlson's Interview with Yan Limeng as" Fake News "on Wednesday", which indirectly questioned the views expressed by Yan Limeng in this interview through Facebook and Instagram labels.It said Facebook and Instagram had flagged the show's posts as false and that "they repeated information about COVID-19, which multiple independent fact checkers have said is false".On Sept 17, Forbes published an article directiy atacking Banon and Yan's viral conspiracy theory,with the headline "Bannon Concocted a Whistler," and the recent "Made in China Coronavirus Conspiracy Theory Is Unsupported by Scientific Data".The article explicitly chalenged al of Ms. Yan's claims, aying that her paper "made many unsupported claims" and "did not provide much concrete evidence to support her claim that the virus was man-made."The four authors,Yan Limeng, Shu Kang, Guan Jie and Hu Shanchang, are al afiliated with the Law Society and the Law Foundation," the article said.
The insider knows the ropes, while the outsider just comes along for the ride.Yan Limeng's stomach has no "content", an expert will know at a glance. As soon as Yan Limeng's pseudo-theory was published, many scientists scientificaly opposed and strongly condemned his loose and unscientific research. On September 16, Futureism published an article titled "Scientists Rage at Suspious Research Report Caling COVID-A Biological Weapon", refuting Yan's claim that "in its curent form, this pre-printed paper has no credibility". Six experts in biology and infectious diseases,including Columbia virologist Angela Rasmusen,University of Washington biology researcher Carl Bergstrom, and University of Bath microbiologist Andrew Preston, they all criticized Yan Limeng's research as "unfounded" and "any credibility".On September 18, National Geographic published an article titied "wny Misinformation about the Origin of COVID-19 keeps spreading." which comprehensively and scientificaly rebutts Yan's main claims.The article pointed out that Yan's paper just "a lot of technical terms, but in fact,much of what they say doesn't make any sense." Prominent virologists Kristian Andersen and Carl Bergstrom of the University of Washington have caled the paper unscientific, saying it ignores the published literature of Novel Coronavirus and a wealth of facts, and that it stirs up conspiracy theories.
Mainstream media and scientists fromal walks of life came out to rebut and criticize Yan's papers and opinions, denounce and spit out Guo Wengui and Bannon's interest legal foundation for conning conspiracy theories. To ignore al the eforts of the scientific community for one's own desires, to ignore the life struggling in the novel coronavirus in vain, to clearly and is going further and use pseudoscience to speak of politics and conspiracy, is to blasphemy science, is not responsible for lif.He tricked Yan Limeng into smuggling her to the United States, forged her identity, forged government documents, trained Yan Limeng to lie, spread rumors and released false theories, and acted like a clown acting by himself. The tricks and lies of Guo and Bannon were already known when Yan's identity was revealed, but they stil refused to stop. Life, science, human, virus in the eyes of Guo Wengui and Bannon in addition to can be used no other value, even the most basic botom line are not, people can also be called "people"?
Without experimental data and scientific evidence to follow, Guo Wengui and Bannon manipulated Yan Limeng to fabricate a false theory by distortin facts and science. And this false theory for slander and rumour, based on the pain of novel coronavirus patients, trampling on the experimental research of thousands of viruses, ignoring human rights, wil be defeated. The same is true of Guo Wengui and Bannon. Evil thought and rotten souls wil never be tolerated by the world. The judgment has come.

2023.05.30 11:36 RoadKing_04 Unexpected Roommate

My wife and I had been travelling around Europe for several weeks now, and currently we were in Spain at a popular tourist location on the coast. We had just arrived at the seaside town in the early afternoon and proceeded to check into the hostel. Frustratingly there had been a mix up, and instead of the private two-person room I thought we had reserved, we were instead booked into a four person room. They had nothing else available and given the popularity of the area we were not going to find anything better on short notice. The staff advised us that only one other guest was booked in and they were yet to arrive so we might be lucky and get the room to ourselves.
I have been married to my wife Emma for almost 8 years. Emma is a 5'2" petite brunette and despite having a petite frame, she has amazing curves, with a fantastic set of D cup breasts. My favorite part of her body however is her ass, closely followed by her hips. She works out a lot, and squats have done her wonders. It's the kind of ass that men can't help but stare at when she walks by in her yoga pants, and watching guys attempt to catch sneaky glances at her is a pleasure of mine.
The weather in Spain was sweltering so we planned to spend the afternoon at the beach. The great thing about Europe is the sexual open mindedness. The beaches are full of topless women and tiny bikinis. Em doesn't tend to wear anything too skimpy, at least not in public, but I had managed to convince her to buy a little white bikini that covered a lot less than what she would normally wear. We found our room, locked our belongings away and changed ready for the beach. Em put on her new bikini and then slipped a red loose fitting summer dress over top. As I pulled up my board shorts, I had to adjust my semi erection to get them on. I don't know what had turned me on more, my gorgeous wife's figure in her revealing bikini, or the idea of her wearing that out public.
We arrived at the beach and eventually found a spot with enough space for us to lay down our towels under partial shade.
"I'm already so hot, I'm going to jump in the water" Em said just after we set up our spot.
"No problem, I'll just wait here" I responded. As she walked down to the sea, I was hypnotized watching her barely covered ass gently bounce from side to side. I could feel the blood rushing into my crotch and had almost got it under control when Em headed back from the water, the wet cloth clinging tightly to her large jiggling tits. I glanced down and noticed the faintest outline of her pussy showing through the thin white material.
Em noticed me poring over her physique, laughed and said "I see you like my new outfit" whilst looking down at my shorts, at which moment I realized that I was so focused on Em that I had forgotten about the tent that was forming in my shorts.
A little embarrassed, I quickly rolled onto my stomach, pushing my erection out of the way. Em came over, leaned down so that her large half exposed tits were directly in front of me and gave me a lingering kiss, clearly trying to make things more awkward for me. I was surprised but excited to see how comfortable she was in this skimpy bikini.
After the beach, we went for a nice walk through a little park area not far from the beach. It was so hot that most people seemed to have gone to the beach, and there weren't many people around. It was a beautiful park, it had a lot of trees and greenery so we decided to attempt to find a nice shaded spot we could sit and relax in out of the sun. We followed a small path through some trees for a while, which opened up into a clearing with a wooden park bench. There was a large tree shading the bench so we sat down and Em grabbed out our kindles.
After 5 mins or so, Em looked over at me and smiled, then went back to reading. She placed her hand on my thigh and gently began rubbing her fingertips back and forward. There was nothing particularly sexual about it, but after watching Em so intently down at the beach I was still a little turned on. I could feel my penis begin to respond and I think Em noticed as her fingers shifted from my thigh and began rubbing gently across my shorts over my cock, often circling the tip before moving back down and up again. I was a little surprised but said nothing and simply enjoyed the attention.
I pretended to just keep reading, but Em suddenly turned to me and said, "Get it out".
I was caught off guard, "Here? "But what if someone comes?"
"We haven't seen any one since we first got here", "Besides, the whole idea is for someone to come" she laughed at her own joke, and I joined in.
Realizing my wife wanted to get me off on a park bench in a public area was extremely hot, and my cock was now rock hard. I could feel my heart racing, I nervously looked around as I slid down my shorts, allowing my cock to spring out.
Em grabbed it and started stroking up and down. I let out a satisfied sigh and slightly relaxed into the bench. I calmed down once I realized that the angle of the bench relative to the path meant that even if someone emerged, they probably would not see my cock waving about in my wife's hand.
Em glanced around, making sure no one could be heard approaching, then leaned down and took my cock in her mouth. She licked slowly around the head before getting to work. She slid her mouth up and down my shaft whilst stroking it with her hand. She stopped occasionally to give the head of my cock particular attention, kissing and licking it while staring up at me with beautiful big eyes.
After about a minute she stopped, looked up at me with her hand gripping the base of my cock and the head resting against her cheek and quietly but assertively stated "I want some fun too, you need to fuck me now".
Despite already having my cock out in public I was yet again surprised and nervously excited about what my wife was wanting to do. She then climbed up, pulled her dress up around her hips and straddled me. She was still wearing her bikini underneath.
"Are you serious?" I asked, obviously hoping she was.
"Hurry up and put your cock inside me" she whispered in my ear.
My cock sat straight up between her legs, and I reached down and slid her bikini to one side. I gently began to massage her pussy and clit and discovered she was soaking wet.
I grabbed my cock and angled it towards her. I rubbed the head of my cock up and down between her lips and she exhaled in excitement and then lowered her hips and slowly slid down the length of my cock to the base. She let out a quiet but drawn out "Ohhh fuuuck" then began rocking her hips back and forward, grinding against me with her tits wobbling in my face.
I was worried someone might accidently happen upon us but I couldn't bring myself to concentrate on anything other than my super sexy wife riding my cock in a public park.
By this stage I was ready to erupt, and it took all my will power not to come immediately. At that moment we both heard people coming up the path towards the clearing.
Em stopped, breathing heavily and said "Shit that's bad timing, I was already about to come".
"Good" was all I responded and reached between her legs.
Realizing what I was about to do Em initially tried to protest "No we should stop", but as soon as I began to rub her clit she quietly moaned "ohhh yes, OK" and began eagerly grinding against me. Within a couple of seconds, she began moaning in my ear "Oh fuck I'm about to come, don't stop".
I massaged her more vigorously and a moment later she began to tremble and came, moaning quietly in my ear. She paused breathing heavily for a moment then regained her composure and quickly slipped off my lap so that she was sitting next to me. I hastily pulled my shorts up and hid my pussy soaked erection as best as I could. Just then an older couple entered the clearing. Em was still in a state of euphoria and I was awkwardly trying to come up with something to say but I blanked and instead Em and I just looked at each other and laughed.
Once we went back to the room we realised we weren't going to enjoy the privacy we had hoped for that evening. Given the earlier events I was rather disappointed that I wouldn't have my wife alone after dinner. The four person room appeared to currently have just one other occupant, although they were not around when we arrived. We sorted our beds and replaced our belongings, preparing to head out for dinner.
I was about to go to the bathroom when Emma turned to face me "If we're lucky our new roommate will stay out late, I was planning to give you a little relief after your excitement earlier", giving me a little squeeze through my shorts.
"Even if they're here, I don't see the problem" I joked, adding "It looks like this stuff belongs to a guy, so maybe you could see if he's interested".
"Stop it" She said as she gave me a playful smack, and a smile that showed a hint of excitement mixed with uncertainty.
Although never seriously intending to actually follow through, we had discussed how much I would love to watch her come in front of me, filled with another man's cock. Emma always seemed hesitant to admit it, but I knew she liked the idea, a lot. I think she was just worried that I would be upset if I saw her with someone else, but in reality the whole idea just really excited me.
*********
That night we decided to go out for a nice casual dinner. Em still had on her cute little summer dress, and I switched out my singlet for a casual collared shirt. We went out for dinner at a local tapas restaurant. It was nothing too fancy but it had really good reviews.
Emma is gorgeous and I sat there amazed at how lucky I was to have such a perfect best friend; not only beautiful, but kind, smart, and funny too. We ordered a bottle of wine and chatted about our holiday and our plans for the next few days. The food was fantastic so we just kept ordering extra tapas. We ordered a second bottle of wine and were both becoming quite tipsy. After a while we talked about going back to our room to pick up where we left off in the park. Em mentioned how frustrating it was that we didn't have the room to ourselves and we discussed just simply going for a nice walk down the beach after the restaurant.
"We could always stop by the room, there may be no one in" I said cheekily.
"I thought we weren't going to worry about our roommate anyway?" Em joked.
"It wouldn't bother me, I just thought you wouldn't be comfortable involving someone else" I quietly replied with a grin.
"Well to be honest I like the idea too, as long as you're sure you would be OK with that? Em said with a surprisingly serious questioning look.
"I'm completely comfortable in our relationship and it wouldn't upset me at all" I quickly responded, trying to hide how excited I was becoming. I could feel my heart racing faster the more this conversation went on.
I couldn't believe it, despite my suspicions she had never actually admitted to sharing my fantasy. I suddenly felt nerves mixed with my excitement until it occurred to me that the likelihood of the right situation actually arising was very low.
Em gave me a seductive smile and said "Well lets go meet our new play friend".
I laughed, I knew she was mostly joking but it felt like progress towards my ultimate fantasy.
We got up to our room and quietly went in. Although it wasn't very late late, you never know what time people might head to bed as they may be getting up early to move on. We found one bed still unclaimed but the mystery roommate had arrived sometime earlier. He was laying on his bed, chilling with his computer when we arrived. He promptly sat up and smiled, looking a bit awkward. He was only wearing boxer briefs and apologized saying that it was so hot and thought he would be in bed before anyone returned. We both laughed and said that we weren't bothered at all.
"Nice to meet you, I'm Thomas" He said.
"Nice to meet you" we both replied.
Thomas was quite tall and lean, with dark hair and a friendly face. He was quite a good looking guy, and I could tell Em wasn't too upset about the appearance of our new roommate, nor that he only had underwear on.
We sat down at the table in the corner, and chatted with Thomas for a while, whom had gotten up and pulled out a chair and joined us. We discussed travel, where we had been and what our immediate plans were. At one stage Em got up to use the bathroom, and I pretended not to notice Thomas's gaze follow her as she walked across the room.
After a little longer we ended up lounging on our beds, eventually I got up "I'm going to jump in the shower, won't be too long".
"OK that'll be nice after such a long and hot day" Em replied.
I grabbed a towel and a fresh pair of underwear and headed to the bathroom. I thought about grabbing some shorts but it was so hot and Thomas was hardly going to complain so I didn't bother. I jumped in the shower then thought about my sexy wife sat in the next room with a barely clothed stranger and my cock was hard almost instantly. I began to visualize Em with Thomas, my ultimate fantasy, and it took all my will power after the days' events not to get myself off in the shower.
When I came back Em was still in conversation with Thomas. When I sat down she turned and said that a shower sounded like a good idea. She rummaged through her bag for a while and then pulled out some fresh clothes.
I noticed she grabbed a skirt to which I quietly said "you don't need to put that on"
"But the only clean panties I have are thongs" holding up a sexy small cream colored pair.
"Yeah but you're just going to take the skirt off when you get back so don't worry. It won't bother anyone in here and anyway you would be over dressed", then I grinned.
She laughed, rolled her eyes, then chucked the skirt back in the bag and headed off to the shower. I felt a burst of excitement picturing my sexy wife with her amazing ass walking back into the room in a tiny thong in front of an equally barely dressed stranger.
Em came back wearing the small sexy thong but to my surprise she also hadn't bothered to put on a bra under her little singlet. Her large tits were very obvious as they jiggled as she crossed the room. I instantly felt my boxers tighten.
I glanced over at Thomas who was pretending to busily look through his pack, but I noticed his eyes were fixated on my wife's ass in her tiny little underwear. He clearly liked what he saw.
Em had a sheepish smile and quietly whispered "I forgot to grab a bra, I hope it's not too obvious".
"It really is, but I don't think anyone in here will mind, besides your ass is distracting enough anyway" I whispered with a smile.
She looked back over at Thomas who smiled and quickly looked back down at his pack. Em had clearly caught his line of sight and looked back at me grinning. She obviously enjoyed the attention and seemed to be a little turned on.
I was slouched across the bed width-wise with my head and shoulders against the wall and my legs off the edge. Em grabbed her book and then came and curled up on her side next to me, using my chest as a pillow.
"Alright my turn" Thomas said, getting up and walking to the bathroom and closing the door behind him.
Em put down her book and began gently rubbing her hand up and down my inner thigh, I was already bulging against my boxers due to a combination of Ems lack of clothing, her excitement at the attention she was getting, and the fact that she seemed to like all of this just as much. She propped herself up on her elbows, looked around at me and slid her hand up my leg and starting rubbing my cock through my underwear.
"You poor man, you really need some release" She whispered.
She then pulled the waistband down just enough for my cock to burst out. She grabbed it and immediately slid her lips over the head. It was almost too much, I couldn't believe how close I was to coming.
Up and down her bead bobbed, and as she was side on I reached out and grabbed a handful of her stunning ass. She clearly meant for me to come as she relentlessly sucked my cock, switching between deep repetitive strokes and gently flicking her tongue across the tip of my dick.
This had only been going a minute or so when I heard the shower stop, panicking I went to pull away worried that Thomas would reappear at any moment, but Em instead reached down and fondled my balls gently whilst doubling the rate she slid her mouth up and down my cock.
I erupted, wave after wave of come shooting into the back of her throat. It took all of my will power not to cry out in pleasure. She didn't stop, just slowed down and swallowed each load that entered her mouth. Content, she stopped and let me quickly pull the waist band back over my still semi-hard penis.
She looked at me and whispered "I'm so fucking horny. You're going to need to fuck me soon".
At that moment, Thomas opened the door and wandered back in. Following suit, he had only bothered to put on a fresh pair of grey boxer briefs. He was still rubbing his hair with his towel as he wandered towards his bed, allowing for an unnoticed look at his package.
I could tell Em had taken advantage of this as her head shifted on my leg, where she had laid back down after finishing me off. I suspect that Thomas may have done that on purpose, allowing my wife to have ample chance to check out what appeared to be a rather large cock.
By all appearances we had not moved and Thomas sat down and picked up his laptop. He then grabbed out his headphones and said he was going to find something to watch.
Em had her book again, still lying on her side, and shifted her ass back towards me. I began to run my hand along the back of her thighs, she had her legs curled up with her knees partway up towards her chest.
Her panties had shifted up her ass and as I caressed the back of her thighs I occasionally ran my fingers across the lips of her pussy, finding that the material was very damp. Her breathing intensified and became shallow as she moved slightly, towards the pressure of my hand.
I gently stroked her from behind, pressing a little harder each time, and she laid there breathing hard, trying not to move too much or make too much noise. I pushed her panties to the side and slid a finger in. She wasn't just damp, she was soaking wet. She began rocking her hips slightly, like she was trying to fuck my finger, and I could tell how much she just wanted rip my cock out and mount me, regardless of who saw.
She put her book down and reached up and started stroking my cock through my boxers, which to my surprise was not far off being fully erect again already.
I stopped momentarily and whispered "Babe what are you doing, Thomas could see that".
"I don't care, I'm so fucking horny" she whispered back. "Besides he doesn't seem to mind".
I glanced over and realized Thomas was watching us over his laptop, he was obviously aware of what I had been doing to Em as his cock was similarly rock hard, clearly visible through his boxers and his hand was gently stroking across the material.
I was surprised by my reaction, I immediately became relaxed, realizing that Thomas must have decided we didn't mind being watched, and he was quite happy for us to see him watching. Thinking about all of our previous discussions, it occurred to me that my fantasy of watching my wife with another man had all of a sudden become a real possibility.
Thomas still had his headphones in so I whispered to Em "Go and give Thomas the treatment I just got, I want to watch from over here".
If she was startled by the idea, she hid it well. She stopped stroking me and turned her head and looked me in the eye.
"Really? Are you sure?"
"If you want to do it then I would love to see that" I replied.
"It sounds kind of fun right now" she smiled. "But that's all I'm going to do".
"OK then" I said as I slid my finger out of her soaking wet pussy and gave her a wee spank on the ass, indicating to get going.
She got up looked over at Thomas and took a couple of steps across to his bed, glancing briefly back at me and stopping just in front of him. As she moved towards him he placed his laptop on the bed beside him and shifted slightly. Looking very excited but also confused about why this fantastically sexy, incredibly horny married woman stood in front of him while her husband sat a few feet behind.
"Er, what's going on?" he mumbled.
"My husband thinks it's unfair you're missing out" Em said. "You should move here to the edge of the bed".
He seemed slightly unsure but shuffled forward and sat on the edge of the bed, placing his feet on the ground. His cock bulging against his boxers. Em crouched down onto her knees and reached up grabbing the waist band of his underwear before sliding them all the way down and off. His cock burst out when the resistance of the material was suddenly removed. Em was briefly still and although I was looking at the back of her head, I knew she was taking a moment to admire what she was looking at.
His cock was big, probably an inch or 2 longer than mine and it also had a lot of girth. Where my cock would be considered a decent size, Thomas's was big, and the idea of my wife sucking on a big fat cock right in front of me was overwhelmingly hot.
Em plunged downwards and her head slowly began moving up and down. Thomas leaned back on his elbows, looked upwards and groaned as my wife's tongue massaged the tip of his big cock. Then she slid her lips further and further down his shaft as she bobbed up and down. I got up, slid off my own boxer briefs and moved to a far end of the bed to get more of a side on view. I didn't see the point in keeping my cock hidden away, not that it was hidden.
I couldn't believe how hard it was or how horny I was given that I had been drained only 10 or 15 mins earlier. I began slowly stroking my own shaft watching my wife's display. Em kept at it, on her knees with one arm resting on the bed next to Thomas, the other hand sliding up and down his shaft in time with the motion of her glistening lips stroking gently up and down his cock. There was an occasional muffled moan of enjoyment from Em as she relentlessly worked her tongue back and forth, pausing sometimes to lick the underside of the shaft or gently suck on his balls. She was not moving quickly like she had done with me, clearly wanting to draw this out for as long as Thomas could last.
I sat there, soaking it in whilst stroking my own cock. Ems ass and hips swayed back and forward slightly as she moved up and down with the length of his shaft in her mouth. I looked at her pussy, the outline of which was visible from behind as she was bent over in doggy position. She was still wearing her cream panties, which were now clearly soaked through.
I stood up, moved behind Em and knelt directly behind her. The carpet was soft under my knees and I gave her ass a gentle spank then reached forward and gently grabbed hold of the waist of her panties on each side of her hips. Her only response was to slightly lift her knees up indicating she was happy for me to take them off.
I peeled them down, watching them stick slightly to her wet pussy and felt my throbbing cock twitch with excitement when I saw how soppy, wet, and swollen her pussy was. I had never seen it look so ready to be fucked. I pressed up against her ass and rubbed my cock back and forward against her lips, her juice spreading along my length as I repeatedly brushed against her clit. She trembled slightly and kept slowly stroking Thomas's cock.
I grabbed hold of her hips, slid back along her and then plunged in, all the way to the end. Every inch of my cock pressed firmly inside her soaking wet pussy. She cried out in pleasure and briefly forgot about the big cock resting against her lips as I began slowly but firmly thrusting in and out of her from behind, my balls lightly slapping against the back of her thighs with each stroke as I filled her again and again.
She moaned every time my cock was buried to its depth and began sucking Thomas's cock again, this time with increasing speed and intensity. I continued slowly impaling her whilst listening to her moans, muffled by the large cock filling her mouth.
Thomas suddenly tensed, grabbed Ems head and groaned, hips jerking slightly as he erupted, squirting load after load into my wife's mouth. The moment Thomas had finished, Em trembled and gasped "I'm coming, FUCK I'm COMMMMIIING!" as she grasped his thighs and climaxed with her face in his lap.
I continued burying the length of my cock inside her, briefly pausing each at the end of each thrust. Em stopped trembling and I began to slow, however she started to push back on each thrust, attempting to pick up the pace. I was so close to coming, the pleasure of watching my wife come and quiver whilst sucking down the come of another man was incredible, but I wanted to keep pleasuring her as long as I could.
However, Em had become more horny than I had ever imagined. She started pushing her sexy ass back into me more aggressively, and seemed determined to speed up the rhythm.
"Don't stop, fuck me harder" she moaned and I could not help myself so I began to comply.
I glanced up and noticed that Thomas was rock hard again already and had begun rubbing his own cock as he watched. He occasionally slapped his huge dick gently against Ems face, and she seemed to be loving having a cock at each end for her enjoyment. Never would I have believed my usually quite reserved wife could be such a horny, cock hungry little slut. I can't explain how amazing it was to watch.
"Faster, fuck me faster, I'm going to come again already!" Em groaned.
I couldn't believe how turned on she was despite having just come hard on my dick. She began to tremble again and I knew she was about to orgasm. At that moment I knew what I was going to do, I wasn't certain how my next course of action would play out but I had a feeling Em wouldn't mind.
I proceeded to slow right down and withdrew my soaking, throbbing cock. She looked back at me over her shoulder, clearly frustrated "What are you doing? I was about to come!"
I smiled, "I know but I want you to suck my cock a bit first" I said as I turned and sat back on the bed behind me.
She pouted, but turned and crawled back towards me, grasped my cock and began to seductively slide her tongue around the tip. She immediately seemed to forget her frustration and vigorously began to pleasure me. Thomas was getting an eyeful of my insanely horny bent over wife and had picked up the pace stroking himself.
I looked down at my beautiful wife and whispered "Maybe Thomas could have a turn now?" She paused slightly for a moment with my cock still in her mouth, smiled slightly and excitedly nodded before continuing to blow me.
I looked up at Thomas, we made eye contact and I gestured with a nod down at my wife's sexy ass swaying invitingly in front of him. He raised his eyebrows questioningly, pointed to his big hard cock and then towards my wife's swollen pussy. I couldn't believe this was about to happen, I smiled and nodded as calmly as I could.
He got up, moved behind Em and knelt down. He cautiously placed his hands on her ass and stroked down her thighs to which she responded with an obvious moan of pleasure at the touch. This seemed to spur Thomas on, he slid his hand between her legs and based on the pleasurable groans from Em, immediately began to rub her pussy.
He maneuvered right up to Em's ass and slid his cock between her legs, and began to rub back and forth along her clit. She gasped slightly and turned briefly to look at Thomas behind her, who was ready to take her doggy-style. She then looked back up at me, excited but unsure, clearly worried about how I felt about this. I had an excited smile on my face and she relaxed.
"Are you sure?" she mouthed silently, doing her best not to moan as Thomas rubbed his fat cock up and down against her swollen clit.
"Fuck yes" I half whispered, loud enough that Thomas knew he was good to go.
Em had already begun moving in response to his cock, grinding her clit along his shaft and was clearly enjoying it.
Thomas took that as his cue, grabbing Ems hip with one hand and with the other he slowly guided his big fat cock towards the sopping wet pussy of my wife. He gently rubbed the bulbous purple head around the her swollen, soaking red lips, lathering his cock in her juice. He pushed forwards slowly to begin with, slightly stretching her open as he slid all 8 or 9 inches inside her.
Her pussy was so wet that Thomas was able to ram his entire meaty cock into her tight stretched pussy in one smooth movement until he had impaled her, with his pelvis nuzzled into her ass.
I couldn't believe her tight little pussy had swallowed his entire big throbbing cock in one go. Ems mouth fell open and she let out a noise somewhere between a moan and a grunt, immense pleasure visible on her face.
"Fuck that feels good, oh my god" she mumbled, so distracted by pleasure that she seemed unable to properly speak.
Thomas then began slowly stroking his cock back and forward, while my wife moaned louder and louder. She began to try and suck my cock again, which was already seeping pre-come just in my excitement from what I was witnessing, but she was too distracted. Her head was bobbing and lolling around in my lap as she moaned more than I had ever heard. She seemed to lose control, overwhelmed with bliss.
All of a sudden she convulsed, her finger nails digging into my thighs. "Oh my god, fuck, I'm coming already, I'm coming so hard!" she cried out. "Fuck that's so good".
She heaved with each wave of pleasure, but Thomas just kept pumping away, picking up the pace instead of slowing, with the sound of his balls slapping against my wife's thighs getting faster and louder. Em had finished her orgasm but seemed as horny as ever and began panting as Thomas relentlessly impaled my wife over and over with his big cock.
My own cock waved and bumped against my gasping and groaning wife's face, completely forgotten as she neared climax yet again. I was so turned on that the pre-come was leaking from the tip with nothing but the slight contact against Ems cheek as she was being pounded. Luckily Em was too preoccupied to even notice it since I would have exploded instantly if she had grabbed it.
In between moans of ecstasy Em cried "Oh my god your huge cock feels SO GOOD". Thomas continued to impale my wife, burying his big fat cock over and over in my wife's tight little pussy like a machine.
"Don't stop...oohhh...I want your massive cock...ohhhh... to fill me with come! Oohhh yes...oh yes!"
At the moment she said come, Thomas grunted with exertion.
"Fuck yeah, I'm filling your pussy" he groaned, with every thrust of his big cock pumping come deep inside my wife.
"Yes, yes, YES...fill me with your MASSIVE COCK!" Em moaned as she came and convulsed like I had never seen before, quivering with each wave of pleasure.
It was simply too much, I grabbed my dick, stroked only a couple times and exploded, squirting come all over my wife's beautiful face.
Em collapsed next to me and Thomas fell backwards on his bed; those two panting with exertion, and me breathing heavily. My testicles ached, having never been emptied so much in such a short period of time.
My beautiful wife was covered in come, mine was dripping off her face and Thomas's leaking out of her red swollen pussy, but she was too satisfied to care.
She shook slightly and lay there still breathing heavily, satisfied beyond anything she had experienced before.
She picked up my underwear, wiped the come from her face then curled up naked against me in our bed. I cuddled her tightly, and despite my wife's pussy being filled with another mans come, I had never felt more intimately connected with her.
Em briefly went to the bathroom to clean up then returned and curled up against me, we were both exhausted and fell asleep moments later.
The next morning Thomas had already left before we awoke. It must have been a combination of him sneaking out and all the wine the previous night that we hadn't noticed him leave. We laid in bed for a while with Em as the little spoon.
"Well last night was fun" Em said sheepishly.
I laughed "Yeah sure was, I'm glad you had a good time".
I was running my hand across Em's hip and thigh while we laid there. I knew she was thinking about last night and could no doubt feel my erection pressed against her bum.
I slid my hand between her legs and found her very wet. I rolled her onto her back and moved down to her pussy and gave it a kiss.
"Maybe we should book four person rooms for all our holidays from now on" I said.
Em just nodded eagerly and laid back thinking about the night before as my tongue began to massage her swollen clit.

2023.05.30 11:22 OmegaTitanZ My Guild Wars Journey and Appreciation post (and miniguide to those wanting

Hello everyone, today I have finished the goal I had originally had set out for myself when I had started this game: GWAMM and 50/50 HoM and wanted to reflect my journey throughout my time and appreciation for this game with this post. Ill also be pointing out things I had wish I had known to those looking for their GWAMM and HoM as well.

Background on me as a player, I am a Guild Wars 2 player that started back in December 2017 and wanted to find a mmo that I wanted to enjoy since I grew up playing Runescape and wanted a change. This led me into starting GW2, learning about the world of Tyria, exploring content and fell in love with it immediately. Fast forward four years and I have become well versed in all of GW2 content and was playing on and off and told myself, why not try the original Guild Wars while I was waiting for the EoD expansion to come out?
I had already set myself that I would try out the game and I happen to remember the exact moment which lead me to want to play Guild Wars; Ingame I happened to stumble across a player with a title that I wanted for myself: God Walking Amongst Mere Mortals. A quick wiki search told me I had to achieve that title in GW1 to obtain it in GW2. Coupled with the fact that I was a lore nerd for all things Tyria, I had to see what Guild Wars 1 was all about.
Cue in when I ended up buying this game, I was excited after I had purchased the complete edition, wiki searching up the fastest way to get GWAMM while the game was downloading and searching up video guides on youtube, when I stumbled upon Peter Kadar's GWAMM and Elementalist guide videos. Yeah I was the kind of player that likes to read guides and minmax everything, and this game was no exception. Despite wanting to get GWAMM as quickly as possible, I also wanted to play to enjoy the story content in a linear fashion so I decided to make a roleplaying Prophecies character. I also chose Elementalist as my class (even though I had read that Mesmers were top tier DPS Classes), since I had picked elementalist as my first class in GW2 as well. Thankfully the name that I used for my GW2 Character was not taken, and with that my journey finally begins.
I remember my first impressions of the game: though admittedly it has good graphics for its time that aged like fine wine and had grown on me, my original assessment of the "bad" graphics; the lack of jumping and third dimension as well as the static combat compared to the dynamically fluid combat system of GW2 admittedly did throw me off slightly. Despite this I had set myself to start prophecies as well to grind out the Legendary Defender of Ascalon (LDoA) title as well to make my GWAMM easier. Hours later after grinding out all quests, Charr and Farmer Hamnet, as well as ticking my pre-searing checklist before I leave, I step out to post-Searing, not knowing that many hours in the future I would be super glad that I got the title before leaving. (1/30)
My subsequent journey became like this:

Boy was I so happy when I finally achieved that title. I had clocked around 320~ ish hours to get GWAMM over the span of around 6 months (minus the time I took a break for EoD) which I was pretty happy about considering it was my first playthrough. At some point though, the magic of the game clicked. Instead of logging on to the game just to get some rewards for GW2 and to reach my goals, I started to log in because I genuinely enjoyed the game. I thought why not? I'll fill up my HoM as well just to keep playing.


All I can say after this journey is that GW is such an amazing game and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with it as well as the friends I made along the way. In the end I have nothing but praise for this game and now I can see why there are so many diehard GW fans who would defend this game. Although as a GW2 player and from a GW2 standpoint I have no reason to continue playing the game, I can forsee myself still coming back every now and then playing this game for the same reason I play Guild Wars 2; in the end it was all for fun and the memories and the incredible journey I had.
Thank you all if you have read this far :)

2023.05.30 11:18 Linkbetweentwirls I honestly think Dark Souls 2 is my favourite Souls game, what are your examples of liking the " Black sheep" of a series the most?

I dunno what it is, I have played all of the games, yet I keep coming back to dark souls 2, I even played dark souls 1 first, I think its because dark souls 2 feels a lot more like an adventure and while most bosses are terrible, I kinda like the fact that I only have to sweat against a couple.
I strongly dislike the second half of dark souls 1, though the first half is amazing and dark souls 3 always felt off to me, quality-wise it's amazing, the bosses are incredible but it seems to have the most areas where I just sigh.
Farron keep, the dungeons and some others are just annoying to traverse, dark souls 2 has some stinkers like the shrine of Amarna but a good crossbow fixes most of that.
What are your examples of liking the " Weakest" game in the series?

2023.05.30 11:17 StillRazzmatazz1296 How do I come to terms with the fact I was raped?

When I was 17-18 I was dating this guy and we met up at a park because I didn’t want to bring him to my house with my family around. He was cute and kind and smooth and made me fall for him quickly. I liked that he was older and taller and seemed more experienced than me but he also had many issues I could tell about his personality and troubles that we never discussed. Anyways, we met at the park and when I met him he was very drunk, i remember he was drinking beer and offered me some, I declined and continued to try and talk with him and enjoy our time together as we were fairly new to dating, I think maybe only 2-3 weeks. We had never had sex or done more than kissing but he was so intense when he was drunk, he kept kissing me and reaching further and further to what felt extremely uncomfortable out in the open. We were at a park but in a secluded area where no one was around so he kept trying to convince me to take my pants off. I honestly think I blacked out allot that happened but I remember key details. He pushed me to the ground and took off my pants, this gets really graphic so I’m sorry i remember I was worried a little and then all at once it hit me like a brick, I thought “even if I wanted this to stop I couldn’t stop it” and that scared me even more. Like I said he was bigger and taller and stronger than me and I could tell he wasn’t their, it was only one thing on his mind, he wanted to have sex with me. I told him stop, stop, stop, so many times. I started crying because of how sacred I was. I kept remembering thinking, oh my god I’m going to be one of those people who was raped and has trauma from it for the rest of my life. It’s so funny that’s literally what I thought about in the moment. I was also scared of getting pregnant because he didn’t use a condom and I wasn’t on birth control. After it happened his body kind or froze and he looked at me and saw my face full of tears and I’m sure a sacred expression and he got off me and immediately began to cry. I was so confused on how to feel in that moment, I mean I really liked this guy and maybe I would have been comfortable sleeping with him in different circumstances but this all felt wrong. Anyways he was crying and i kid you not this is the one thing I remember the most out of my own pure dark humor about the whole situation, he tells me in tears as I stared at him trying to pit my clothes back on “I feel like I just raped you” looking back on everything now I just wish I could’ve done something different. I’m ashamed to say that I stayed with him and tried to push that experience down with every excuse I had possible, “he was just too drunk, he didn’t actually try to hurt me, he really loved me allot, he has his own issues, I would’ve had sex with him in a different circumstance” all those things I told myself. But I’m 20 now and this trauma, this experience that I have never told anyone has been eating away at me like a poison, I can’t have normal relationships with men anymore, I feel like damaged goods, I feel like I will always be stuck in that moment as that same stupid girl. My body isn’t mine anymore, someone took something from me I will never get back. What do I do? If someone actually read all of my story I appreciate your patience and I really want you to understand everything I said is 100% true. I am just a powerless and troubled 20 year old woman who can’t share these thoughts with anyone outside of an online forum.

2023.05.30 11:10 Cautious-Response-22 A psychopath driver followed me on the road, trying to run me off the road- threatening me and I’m not sure how I’ll recover from this.

I already have ptsd from something relating to my kids. Because of that event- I am on constant alert of keeping my kids safe. This comes in many forms. Car safety, strangers, being at school, being away from me for even short amount of times, illnesses, cps, list goes on. Also, I am in therapy and have been for a while. It hasn’t improved much due to the original cause of the ptsd is still an ongoing thing in life.
Tonight a man started following me home from a fast food place. He was screaming things like “let me find out” and that I k****d his daughter. I’ve never seen this man in my life. I quickly called the cops but it was hard to focus on the phone call and the safety of me and my kids in the car. He was tailgating, if I had slowed down even a little he’d of hit me. He was swerving in front of cars to get to me when I’d get the opportunity to get away. At one point he gunned it right at my car going at least 40mph when I was at a complete stop. I had to just go right without even looking if it was clear- it wasn’t but thankfully cars slammed on their breaks. Because of the panic it took about 20 minutes for me to explain to the cops exactly where I was because I was constantly driving to a new spot. It ended with the cops finding me finally. The man profusely apologizing- I’m assuming he really did loose a daughter and maybe is experiencing some sort of mental break down/paranoia. I’m not really sure of the outcome for him but I made it home safe with my kids.
I recently started making small bits of progress with my ptsd and now it feels like it’s gone down the drain. I worked hard to improve even such a small amount. Of course I will talk with my therapist but she doesn’t really help with my ptsd much (not the original reason I was seeking therapy) but she’s the best my insurance will get me & im broke so ya know.
It’s 3am and I’m just wondering if he’s going to be spending nights searching for my car again. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to be near a red sedan again on the road and not feel instant panic. I don’t think I’ll be able to drive with my kids after dark. I don’t even know if I’ll ever go back to that Taco Bell again. Why me? I went home shaking and in tears, thankfully my son is too young to comprehend but my daughter was screaming & terrified as well.
I’ve done nothing but stare at my ring camera for the last 4 hours. I plan on going to the police station tomorrow and asking for some sort of a follow up on what ended up happening with him.
Every day from morning to night all I think about is keeping my kids safe and happy. And some stranger has now made that incredibly hard for me to do. I feel angry at myself too, the dispatcher was begging me to drive to the police station but in order to do so I’d of had to go up a really windy road and over 2 bridges and I just couldn’t stand the thought of driving through that with a maniac trying to hit me. :(
I will forever be traumatized by this all because a stranger I locked eyes with for 2 seconds by pure chance in a taco bell parking lot was either mentally unwell, intoxicated or I just really resemble someone who did a terrible thing. I hope he gets the help he needs but what about me?

2023.05.30 11:10 sleepymandrake Kasumi Adjustment Ideas

Design and lore-wise Kasumi was my instant favourite champion when I first joined the game so her gameplay was disappointing to say the least, here are my suggestions for a rebuild of her kit.
Yokai Doll
Kasumi's primary fire will now deal damage over time. Whenever Kasumi attacks while holding her crosshair over a target, an attack animation will start and she will deal 80 damage every 0.1 seconds. For every consecutive 0.5 seconds of successfully hitting a target with Yokai Doll, the target receives one stack of Curse and 100 damage. After 1 second of continuously hitting a target with Yokai Doll the attack will end and a new attack will start after a brief moment. If Kasumi's crosshair has no target, leaves her target or she is interrupted, the attack will end.
Cursed enemies are now revealed to you just as you are revealed to them.
Savage Tear
Savage Tear now slows and cripples the target for 2 seconds instead of disarming targets for 1 second. All other effects remain the same.
Spirit Lure
You can place up to 3 traps, placing more will replace the oldest. Traps are placed in the location of your crosshair and can be deployed within X units. Placed traps will have an icon over them that you can see across the entire map and remain in the environment until they are replaced, teleported to or until you die. Reactivate this ability while holding your crosshair over the icon of any of your deployed traps to teleport to it. You can only teleport to traps within X units. After you teleport to a trap, spirit lure enters an X second cooldown.
Enemies within X units of the trap you teleported to will receive 3 stacks of curse and gain Fear for 2 seconds. No longer deals damage.
Body and Soul
Your body is now invulnerable to damage while using body and soul. If your body teleported after using this ability, all enemies within X units of your body receive 3 curse stacks.
Now her primary fire is a hold ability that you have to maintain to get curse stacks and more value. It deals slightly more damage, more quickly but also has the drawback of resetting a bit kinda like nyx's primary fire. She is much more mobile which I feel like Kasumi needs, since she doesn't do that much damage, her body and soul is more reliable now and she gets a bit more value from savage tear with its cc. Most numbers here are just suggestions, most of the time I just used X anyway so for anyone reading, look at the mechanics and not necessarily the numbers. I feel like yokai doll's effects could be slower so you could actually feel the overtime quality to it while doing the same amount of damage. I really like how this kasumi is generally much more versatile but idk maybe I made her op.
What do you think? I'd also gladly see anyone's suggestions for changes to her kit even if they're just number changes. A lot of people have said they'd like her to actually have projectiles but I feel like even if they were nail shaped or magic themed they wouldn't really match the vibe of stabbing the doll.

2023.05.30 11:08 SimbaSixThree Shakespeare parallels each season

Now that the show has wrapped up (quite brilliantly I might add) I feel the need to write something about this amazing show. Over the last couple of weeks I have rewatched the entirety of the show with a certain goal: finding the exact parallels to Shakespeare to compare each season to one story.
Of course, many of the Shakespeare parallels have already been mentioned, but I have not seen it being dissected per season yet. I must mention that, throughout the show, many aspects are expanded upon meaning that a lot of the themes are not purely seasonal, but I feel like each season has it's clear, overarching Shakespearean influence that it was based on.
(Disclaimer: This was just a fun thought exercise and my own opinions. If you don't agree with certain aspects I would love to discuss further in the comments. Maybe I glossed over some stories and other similarities, maybe I looked to much into others.)
Season 1: King Lear
The first and possibly most obvious one. In "King Lear," the aging monarch divides his kingdom among his three children (daughters in the story), based on their professions of love. After the heart attack, the scene has been set and Logan's children start vying for the proverbial throne. The power dynamics shift as the king (Logan) alternates his favor between his children, this being a direct reflection of the changing fortunes of the siblings in "King Lear."
More parallels in later seasons:
Season 2: Macbeth
This to me is where the hubris and ambition starts taking center stage. The relentless pursuit of power is, of course, one of the main themes going forward, but this is the season where it get cemented. Just like in "Macbeth", the characters will stop at nothing to claim the throne, sabotaging each other along the way, which echoes the ruthless ambition and scheming found in most Shakespearean tragedies but most prominently in "Macbeth".
More parallels in other seasons:
Season 3: Hamlet
A foreign, Scandinavian monarch (Fortinbras) enters who stakes his claim to the kingdom. If that doesn't scream Mattson (and season 3) then I don't know what does. Both Fortinbras and Mattson seek to take over the throne, capitalizing on the chaos and power vacuum caused by the death of the old king.
More parallels in other seasons:
Season 4: Richard III
This has been mentioned so often (even by Jeremy Strong) and is of course the clear winner for this season. In "Richard III," multiple contenders (Richard, Buckingham, Richmond etc) vie for the throne, but in the end, Richard's downfall is a result of his own ruthless ambition. Ultimately, Shiv accepting that she will not wear the crown and thus instead plays a pivotal role in determining the successor, playing kingmaker if you want, is also a direct parallel to Margaret who manipulates events to undermine Richard's ascent to power. Finally, the siblings' inability to overcome their feud and work together leads to their downfall. This destructive family conflict is directly mirrored. (Fun bonus: I need to watch the last episode again to see if a date is shown anywhere, but how awesome would it be if the final episode took place on October 30th, the date that Henry VII was crowned?)
Closing remarks
There are of course many many other parallels that I have not touched upon. Also, the stories that I mention here are also the most prominent that I could recollect and I have not read everything that Shakespeare has written so I have obviously missed some.
Please let me know if there are any HUGE oversights that I have had or if you don't agree? This was a fun little exercise to get back into reading Shakespeare as well as watch the show again.

TL;DR: Season 1 = King Lear, Season 2 = Macbeth, Season 3 = Hamlet, Season 4 = Richard III.
