Maps and Mods required:

We will be fighting on Takistan. Please Download CUP Terrains - Maps.

Situation:

Takistan is still posing a thorn in our side. They have been a close ally of the Russians since the start of the war and are continuing to supply them with oil to fuel the Russian war effort. The British are tasked with attacking and securing Takistan to cut off the supply of fuel to Russia.

Mission:

We will be entering the region from the north. The first priority is to secure Rasman and its airbase to base Fixed wing aircraft to gain air superiority in the region. After that we must secure the town of Nagara and the oil fields surrounding it. Once Nagara is secure we will push south into the crossroads of Bastam. Once Bastam is secure we will have to hold it from Takistani counter attacks. If we make unexpectedly quick progress we will continue down the MSR and secure the next major town of Feruz Abad.

Objectives:

Map of the AO
  • Secure Rasman and the Air Base
  • Secure Nagara
  • Secure Bastam
  • Defend Bastam from enemy counter attacks
  • If time permits, Secure Feruz Abad

Friendly Forces:

We are a Mechanized British platoon with access to Warrior IFVs and a Landrover with a Milan to handle heavier assets.
We have a friendly platoon to the East securing the oil fields near Zavarak. They will be dealing with their own issues so don't expect support from them for a while.
A battery of 3 105mm howitzers are on standby to provide support when needed.

Civilians and ROE:

Civilians are in the AO, however they aren't stupid. Once they realize there is a war going on they will most likely get the hell out of dodge and away from the fighting. That doesn't mean you can just go crazy and blow everything up. Avoid damage to civilian property and infrastructure and do not engage civilians for whatever reason.

Enemy Forces:

The enemy is the Takistani military. They are armed with AKs and RPGs. They have access to older BTRs, BMPs and possibly even T-55s although they are unlikely to risk these tanks unless they get really desperate.

Support and Equipment:

4x FV510 Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicles
1x Landrover armed with a Milan ATGM Launcher
We have 3 105mm howitzers on standby. The CO and 2IC have access to them through SSS.

2020.09.23 16:39 -kelsie Who murdered 31 year old nurse Ally Brueger during her afternoon jog in Rose Township, Michigan in the summer of 2016?

Alexandra Brueger, the only child of Franz and Nikki Brueger, was born on November 9, 1984. Ally was only 4'9" and weighed 98 pounds - her parents called her "small in stature, but mighty in presence". She was a graduate of Holly High School where she was editor of the school paper and graduated with honors. She was working on her Master's degree in creative writing (awarded posthumously) while working as an RN at Providence Park Hospital in Novi, Michigan. Writing was her passion while nursing was her profession. She loved animals, silly jokes, and her family. She aimed to get a PhD in poetry. During Ally's childhood, Nikki would check out at least 50 books a week at the Holly Public Library to satisfy her daughter.
Ally jogged the same route on rural Fish Lake Road in Rose Township nearly every day for a decade without issue. However, on a sunny Saturday in July four years ago, someone decided to end her life with a shotgun. She collapsed on a nearby lawn. A man who lived nearby called 911 and attempted to plug her wounds until the ambulance arrived - but Ally didn't make it.
Michigan State Police say they found four shotgun casings at the scene. Only one of those shots hit Ally, but it was fatal.
One of the few pieces of evidence publicly available is that witnesses claimed to have seen a white or light-colored four-door sedan traveling at a high rate of speed on Fish Lake Road around the time of the murder.
There have been no named persons of interests and no arrests. Michigan State Police are saying nothing about the case other than they are still investigating, and the case is listed on the Michigan Cold Case website (linked below).
It didn't take any time for her parents to come up with their number 1 suspect: Wes Sutherland, their daughter's ex-boyfriend. He responded in kind by pointing a finger at her parents.
“We have spoken with Wes. We’ve interviewed him a couple of times now. He’s a suspect in this incident,” said Michigan State Police First Lt. Michael Shaw. But F/Lt. Shaw says Sutherland is not the only suspect. “Unfortunately, unless you rule people out or have a very solid alibi, everybody’s a suspect. Including mom and dad right now,” said F/Lt. Shaw.
The parents have since been cleared by police of any involvement in their daughter's murder. The same cannot be said for Wes Sutherland, however.
Ally met Wes at the hospital they both worked at a couple of years prior. She and Wes had broken up only 3 months before her murder, and she had just moved back in with her parents after moving out of the home she and Wes shared.
Wes says he and Ally broke up because she wanted to get married immediately, and he didn't. Ally's parents say they broke up because Ally found his profile on a dating site.
In the Crime Watch Daily episode about Ally (linked below), the police state that they were suspicious of Mr. Sutherland from the first time they interviewed him and they felt he was holding back information from them. His alibi was not able to be verified - Wes says he was at home and had worked with Ally the night before, and she was supposed to come over to his house that morning but she didn't.
The police asked Wes to take two polygraph tests, and according to Wes, the first one was inconclusive while he failed the second one. Wes doesn't think he actually failed the second one and that the police are lying to him as an intimidation tactic. He also made accounts on both Websleuths (username combatmedic2121) and Reddit, where he continued to state negative things about Nikki and Franz. Wes claims to be in touch with investigators and says the FBI is now looking at the case, and he also said he was suspicious of a male coworker of Ally's that he thinks could've been involved. Wes also stated he and Ally had been planning an engagement and were working on their relationship at the time she was killed, while her parents say that is absolutely not true.
“At the time of her murder, Ally was planning an August 2016 trip to Florida to visit a guy she had casually dated several years ago,” her mom said.
Lt. Shaw says detectives are looking at 3 possible scenarios:
During a media interview last year, Nikki Brueger said the following:
“We are so disheartened that it’s been three years and we still have no justice or truth in our daughter’s case. We have dealt with inconsistent and conflicting statements made by the detectives, which I refer to as their ‘double talk.’ This insensitive behavior makes you feel very powerless, and it grinds away on any optimism or hope that we try and hold on to. And, then there are the hurtful comments made by people who claim to be our friends,” she said. “Statements like ‘Oh, something else will come along to replace your child,’ or ‘At least you have a body, and Ally is not missing,’ and ‘Isn’t the case cold by now, are you sure they are really working on it.’ And lastly, ‘Maybe the police will never solve her case.’"
Nikki Brueger said she is disappointed that the Crime Stoppers posters she distributed around Holly and Fenton were put up for a short time, but have since come down. She said one retailer told her it “scares their customers".
Ally left behind her parents, many close friends, and her beloved dog, Zeus.
Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering up to $8,500 for tips leading to the arrest of a suspect in Brueger’s murder. The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF, is offering $5,000. Anyone with information can submit a tip anonymously by calling 1-800-SPEAKUP.

2020.09.23 02:32 BIGpictr53 When has an e liquid steeped to long and the quality is compromised?

I recently received an e liquid that I purchased from a reputable online company and have read good reviews of the brand and specific juice. I have never tried this brand before, but am quite familiar with the flavor that I chose, vanilla custard. I'm well aware that there are variations. I could detect a slight vanilla scent, but when I tested the juice on my finger a strong, nasty bitter taste overwhelmed any vanilla flavor. No custard could be detected. I tried to vape it on my Zeus dual rdta and it burnt my lungs, had an alcohol type taste, and felt light-headed. I looked at the cardboard box it came in and saw that it was made on 12/06/17 and the expiration date is 12/05/20. Also, there is no way to check authentication. I've contacted the company that I purchased this juice from and all they told me was I needed to use it on an rtda or rda because it had a VG/PG ratio of 60/40 which didn't address my concern. The only thing I can now think of to do is try contacting them again, but I'd appreciate any feedback on this situation.

2020.09.22 17:24 queenofbo0ks Today has been a day...

My 9.5 month old pup, Zeus, LOVES dogs and humans alike and it's actually been our only issue to date (trying to stop him from wanting to greet and play with everyone). We're currently following behavior classes just to help him get used to being around dogs without interacting. On overall, he's been doing pretty good.
With training at home and outside he's been doing fine. We're currently training "apport" (don't know the English word, but it's waiting for your command to get something and to deliver it in your hand). He knew this already, except for the waiting for my command, so it's fun to learn some new tricks.
HOWEVER, today has been an... interesting day. It started with him following us everywhere in our house. He normally does this too, but this time he was more present and clingy.
Then, we went outside for a long walk and some playtime and training time. He wanted to play, but he also didn't. So we started training. He didn't want that either, he wanted to play. Okay.
We took a short break and started playing again. Nope. He did not want to play. No training either, not even the tricks he normally loves. He wanted to chase the chestnuts we threw in the forest...
During our most recent walk, he was only wearing a collar and leash as we use those for 5min potty walks. He saw a familiar dog and wanted to greet him. It was fine by me and the other dog's owners, but this guy did everything he could to hang himself on the leash. We then greeted the other dog, who ignored Zeus to play with a ball, and we went away again. Suddenly, little gremlin decided to show his magician skills, slipped out of the collar and ran back to the other dog.
The other owners thought it was pretty funny (fortunately, they're chill people) and their dog didn't bat an eye, but I felt so ashamed. They said something along the lines of "puberty, éh?" I grabbed Zeus and put the collar back on, and this time he walked with me without any problem. The little bastard.
Zeus has been doing so good lately and apparently today wasn't really his day. However, him not feeling it means that I must suffer too apparently.
I think I'll make it a slow evening walk for the sake of both of us. Tomorrow morning is class again. I really hope he shows some manners then...
Please share your stories! I need to feel less alone😂

2020.09.22 14:04 LordChozo Hindsight is 2020: #9 - The Cinema Show

from Selling England by the Pound, 1973
Listen to it here!
“Have you ever heard of the Boat of Tiresias?” That was the question posed to the class by one of my college philosophy professors. Nobody raised their hands; though I had heard of Tiresias in another context, I wasn’t aware of any particular association with a boat. The professor went on to explain that the Boat presented a question of metaphysical identity. He posed the thought problem to us thusly:
Tiresias had a boat that was of such cultural/historical importance that it was preserved in Athens, but, as the boat was constructed of wood, it slowly began to rot away, one board at a time. And so, being good caretakers, those tasked with the boat’s preservation would remove the rotting piece of wood and replace it with a fresh wooden board of equal dimensions. Piece by piece the boat was restored and replaced in this manner until after many decades no wood from the original boat remained. Was this, then, the same boat as the one that entered their care? Or was it now a different boat entirely? And if it were a different boat entirely, at what point did the identity of the boat change? After one plank? After every plank? Somewhere in between?
This is deep, thought-provoking stuff. So the idea that Genesis wrote a song heavily featuring Tiresias? Must be pretty heady material indeed!
Peter: We seem to have lost the adolescent preoccupation with sex and death, and what we have now are certain kinds of unrelated lyrical ideas. 1
So one just looks at the lyrics and...wait a minute here. Romeo? Juliet? An extended metaphor about earth and sea as pertaining to erotic pleasure? ...This song’s about sex, isn’t it? Peter lied to me. Come on, man! Where are my metaphysics? Where’s this boat I’ve heard so much about? There must be some misunderstanding! There must be some kind of mistake!
Oh, what’s that? It’s the Boat of Theseus? My professor just had his classical Greek figures confused this whole time? Well, that’s just great. All right then...I suppose sex it is!
Steve: It’s a very beautiful song, very romantic… 2
OK. Let’s talk about this romantic song, shall we? It’s a lovely little opening here with the tinkling 12-string sound. It gives similar vibes to “The Musical Box” a couple albums earlier, though the notes and structures are very different. But it almost wasn’t to be.
Steve: When it was originally put together it was linked to “Dancing with the Moonlit Knight”. We had a very sort of contentious meeting about this at the time. I remember Phil saying, “Well, if there’s a 12-string passage in something, does it mean that every long song has to have a 12-string passage in it?” There were some crestfallen faces. So we started to do some long songs that didn’t have 12-string passages in them. 2
You can almost see Mike’s face getting even longer than usual at an exasperated Phil saying “Enough with the 12-strings already!” And indeed, while the 12-string wouldn’t exactly go away until the three-piece era, after this album it did become slightly less ubiquitous. But by golly, “The Cinema Show” is a romantic song, and romance means 12-string guitar!
Mike: Another good example of when I tuned my 12-strings. Normally you’ve got twelve strings and they’re paired up, and you tune each pair to the same note. I started tuning each pair to harmony notes. Which is how the song starts with that little rundown. Now what the hell that tuning is, I haven’t got a clue. Because the other day in New York they were saying, “Let’s do the first half of ‘Cinema Show’ maybe.” And I said, “Well, I have no idea how I played it. We’d have to work a compromised version out.” 3
Spoiler alert: they never did work a compromised tuning out, so if you’re disappointed that you never got to hear “The Cinema Show” in its entirety in the 21st century, it’s all Mike’s fault. Anyway, there are a lot of guitar strings tinkling around in this one.
Steve: I was influenced by the flute work of Ian McDonald working with King Crimson, so I tried to play very pastoral phrases. I developed it a bit more when we did it live, doing percussion noises and whathaveyou. But in some ways it typifies the Genesis sound because you’ve got almost a plethora of 12-strings going: sometimes two 12-strings, sometimes three. And an electric 6-string as well. And this jangly sound where you can’t tell: it sounds almost...is that a keyboard? Is that a guitar? What is that sound? 3
And then we get the story, or really more like a snapshot, of this busy young woman trying to tidy up her place and herself before going to catch a movie with her date. I confess when I first heard the lyric that she “clears her morning meal” I thought it meant she was having some gastrointestinal difficulties, if you catch my drift. Decidedly unromantic, that. But I wouldn’t have put something like that past Peter. Was it Peter? Who did the lyrics to this one, anyway?
Phil: ”Cinema Show” was lyrically I think Tony and Peter. I think. Either Tony and Peter or Mike and Peter. 3
Was it you or was it me? Ah well. In any case, from Juliet we go straight to Romeo, who is basically just looking to get laid. It’s a classic story. Boy meets girl, boy lusts after girl, girl agrees to a pleasant night at the cinema, boy gives girl chocolates, girl thinks boy is nice, boy propositions girl, both go home a little more tired. Tale as old as time, that one. And it’s from there that Tiresias makes his appearance, where his actual background is relayed. There are variations on the classical myth, but Genesis lands on one of them in particular.
Tiresias, as the story goes, was hiking up a mountain and saw a pair of snakes “getting nasty,” as I think they called it back then. He used his walking stick to “break that s--- up,” I think was the parlance, which incurred the wrath of the goddess queen Hera, who was aspected to things like fertility. Hera was a capricious and impulsive goddess, and so she immediately decided that interrupting a pair of fornicating snakes was punishable by forced sex change. Thus, she transformed Tiresias into a woman and made Tiresias one of her priestesses so (s)he could atone. Tiresias was surprisingly not much put out by this turn of events, and found a nice man to settle down and have kids with. After some years, Mother Tiresias found some more snakes doin’ the deed, and left them alone. Hera then turned Tiresias back into a man since he’d seemed to learn his lesson, which meant that in a very strange twist of fate, his kids now had two biological dads; I imagine the family dynamics probably got a little awkward after that.
Later, Hera and her husband Zeus found themselves in an argument over who derived more pleasure from sex - men or women. Being exceedingly petty gods with victim complexes, each one wanted the other sex to be the “winner.” That is, Hera argued that men enjoyed sex more, and Zeus the opposite. At an impasse, Hera summoned Tiresias on the basis that he was the only person - mortal or god - who had experienced sex from both sides of the equation. They posed the question to him, and though he was a priest(ess?) of Hera, he felt compelled to answer truthfully: women get way more out of it than men do. Genesis translate this reply thusly: “Once a man, like the sea I raged. Once a woman, like the earth I gave. But there is, in fact, more earth than sea.” A furious Hera struck him blind on the spot for embarrassing her, but a very pleased Zeus tried to make up for it by giving him foresight instead. Thus, Tiresias became known as a blind seer, a title as fittingly oxymoronic as his status as the first man-woman-man.
So, in summary, “The Cinema Show” isn’t an adolescent fixation on sex. No, it’s an adolescent fixation on sex combined with classical Greek mythology. See? All grown up now! In fairness though, musically that maturation is very clear. After our first dalliance with Tiresias, we go into a veritable forest of guitar strings once again, featuring oboe and flute solos. I’ve only ever heard one other song that sounds anything like it, and that’s “The Dreaming Tree” by Dave Matthews Band, which came out 24 years later and may well have been influenced significantly by this song in the first place. It’s such a unique atmosphere. As much as I love the live versions of this song, listening to this section on Seconds Out you can’t help but feel like an entire audio channel is missing. Those jazzy, improv style woodwind lines have an impact that to me can’t be overstated.
Then we get some really delightful vocal interplay on simple “la la la” stuff before one last little trip back with Father Tiresias, and one last declaration that there’s more earth than sea as Steve’s electric guitar gets a little solo to bring us home. Or is that a keyboard? Dangit guys, you’ve got me all confused again.
Let’s hear it from the band!
Steve: It’s a very beautiful combination I think of 12-strings and keyboards. 2
Tony: The other song on this album I suppose that kind of was a big development for us again was “The Cinema Show”. Which was another one of those things which starts off with a sort of quiet, acoustic beginning and then ends up doing something else at the end. 3
Mike: Bloody hard to write [the album]... The funny thing was we thought we had the bulk of it written. “Cinema Show” was put on at the end, and that became one of the best things - one example that you shouldn’t force writing. 4
Phil: I’d like Genesis to get a bit looser, while keeping the arranged things. I want to get more into different time signatures. I think my playing has improved a lot… 5
Tony: Mike had this riff which was in seven, just going dun dun dun g-jun-dun, like that. And he was playing along and you know, then I just sort of started fiddling around on top of it. 3
Phil: A guitar riff [and] a 7/8 drum riff. And then Tony just had sort of lots of bits on top, and eventually that became “the thing.” Which was very strong, I think. 3
Mike: The rhythm was 7/8, which feels different but doesn’t sound clever-clever. 6
Huh, that’s weird. I’ve listened to this thing a number of times and I don’t hear anything in seven. Wonder what they’re talking ab-
dun dun dun d-d-dun dun dun
...Did you guys hear that? That was pretty we-
d-d-dun dun dun d-d-dun dun dun
There it is again! What in the wor-
d-d-dun dun dun d-d-dun dun dun
dun dun dun d-d-dun dun dun d-d-dun dun dun d-d-dun dun dun d-d-dun dun dun
Whoooooa there. This is something else entirely here. What is going on?
Tony: “The Cinema Show”, again like “The Musical Box” or “Supper’s Ready”, had started off with an acoustic idea. But this time once we went off into the instrumental section at the end we didn’t come back; it developed its own life. When we played that song to Tony Stratton-Smith, who was obviously a big fan of ours, he didn’t like it. He felt we were trying to move into the area of ELP and that we were drifting away from what we did best. My feeling was that you can’t stay doing the same thing forever and that particularly with “Firth of Fifth” and “The Cinema Show” we were trying out things we hadn’t done on the previous albums. 7
Man, Tony’s doing some work on this. What even…
Mike: Selling England wasn’t my favorite album but “The Cinema Show” was a real standout moment. The second half of the song was the start of a new phase between me and Tony… I’m moving around chords, Tony’s reacting and improvising over them, and between the two of us we’re coming up with something that would go on to be the essence of the Genesis sound for the next twenty years. And the drumming’s great, too. 6
Gracious, the drumming! How did I miss that? Just listen to that cymbal work! That’s incredible! How the…
Tony: And then we thought this could be really good, so again Phil, Mike, and I just went off really, and put this all together and worked on all of those bits. And I just improvised for hours and got these little bits and pieces going, and Mike would change the chords, and we ended up with this piece. And you know, it was such a strong rhythm in the first place. A lot of things you play on it could be really good. But I got one or two quite good melodies on top of it… 3
I guess you mean this wonderful melody here? This splendid little dance around the A-major scale? What a delight!
Steve: The famous melody. Of course in a way it always deserved to be heard live to get the full impact of this. Last time I did it with my band, it virtually raised the roof. I’d never heard anything so loud in my life. The bass pedals were enough to bring the ceiling down. And those famous Mellotron voices of course. ...I think the cinematic effect, the soundtrack effect, really comes from the instrumental stuff and Tony’s extraordinary keyboard work on this. 2
Raise the roof? Bass pedals? What are you talking about St-

OH MY WORD

Tony: The solo on “Cinema Show” was very much the thing… Obviously, “Cinema Show” went on to become a live classic. 8
WHAT WAS THAT SOUND? AND WHERE DID MY BODY GO?
Steve: We’d just acquired the Mellotron voices. I pushed the band into getting a Mellotron way back in the day, and of course we bought our original one off of King Crimson. But the Mellotron voices hadn’t really been invented at that point. I remember Mellotronics said to us, “Ooh, there’s some very interesting stuff. You might like to come down and hear.” And Tony Banks and I went down to listen to their latest stuff and it was male and female voices mixed, and you could get them separately if you wanted. So, you know, we opted to have the full whack of them all together. 2
Male and female mashed together, huh? Clever-clever, Steve! I see what you did there!
Mike: But the second part, once again it seems to me we’d started this movement I think with myself, Phil, and Tony… playing, jamming, getting instrumental moments like the...9/8 in “Supper’s Ready”, this one [in “Cinema Show”]...which became a large part of our trademark, really. The instrumental part was a huge sort of crowd pleaser. Very “live” song. 3
“Crowd pleaser…” ya think? Man, gonna take a bit to come down from that...wait, why isn’t it coming down? WHY ISN’T IT COMING DOWN? Good gravy Tony, aren’t your fingers tired yet?! HOW IS THIS STILL HAPPENING?
Peter: The solos are longer on this one and we’ve played our things to their natural length. In the past we rather nervously tended to cut things short. The new [album] has longer solos - at the risk of being boring. We hope the fans will stay with us at any rate. 9
STILL HERE, PETE OL’ CHAP!
Mike: When we played the song live, Pete and Steve would leave the stage at the end so it was just me, Tony, and Phil. It was so strong and it was just the three of us. Although I wasn’t conscious of it at the time, I think that must have been something I stored away in my memory: the knowledge of what the three of us could do. 6
Oh, poor Steve. Must’ve been a little dull for him there. I feel really bad for the guy.
Steve: For me the most creative album the band did is Selling England by the Pound. I think that showcased both the song aspect that the band had, I think it showcased some of the playing talent...like, you know, occasionally the instruments were allowed to breathe. I mean, you know, unaccompanied things. Not very long, but, you know, occasionally. I think the odd solo was too long. I think “Cinema Show”, I mean that keyboard solo which went on interminably on one chord in 7/8 for God knows how long. I think that was pretty damn long. Apart from that I think it showcased the individual abilities pretty nicely. 10
...Aight, forget him. Let’s gooooooo! I can only imagine hearing this thing live. Eh? You’ve got a link? Yusssssssssssssss!
Tony: Although Chester [Thompson] came from a slightly different area of music, he was very able to adapt to what we were doing, and he added to our very English kind of music a hint of something which I really liked. A song like “The Cinema Show” really developed and came alive with the double drumming between Chester and Phil - which we had first tried out with Bill Bruford. 10
Double drummin’, gimme gimme! I can’t get enough of this thing man. This song is pure fire in keyboard form. Unimpeachable. Magnificent.
Phil: “Cinema Show” is a huge tour-de-force. [The album’s] certainly got a lot of things we still play. Huge stage classics on it. I like “Cinema Show” in particular. The first half is great as well. 3
Wait, what first half?
Let’s hear it from the band!
Tony: I think the instrumental at the end of this was probably the best of the ones we did - at this stage of our careers, anyhow. ...and it again built up to a very nice sort of climax I think. Probably better on stage than it was on the album in many ways, because on the album it sort of fades out into the next bit, which I’m not too sure is quite so good. But it was an exciting thing to have created at the time. We were very pleased with it. 3
Tony: The things I get bored with [playing], I cut out [live]. Like lots of parts of “Cinema Show” I couldn’t stand playing anymore. So we only do the three best parts of it. 11
Tony: There is a tendency to avoid rhythms like seven [in later Genesis music], because at this point in time they sound a little bit dated. Like the seven we used in “Cinema Show”. You can go into the studio, tap out a rhythm in seven, and almost say it’s “Cinema Show” because it’s so identifiable. 11

2020.09.21 09:11 BetaChorale Open Letter to my Ex, two days after the split

I sit here, crying at my computer, talking to a pixel starry sky painted flower pot circling snail named Dionysus. I don't believe in any Gods, but if I had to pick one and pray, it'd be him. I devote my time to these succulents in worship to the things I hold dear.
This garden of mine was an alter to our future. The centered Blue Glow Agave rose over the years, tended well and watered with love. I named him Tingle, for the eccentric fairy I loved to see most on the separate childhood adventures we'd reconcile together over as adults. You were a love that was new as nostalgia, and I wept at the sight of a barren shelf where your low poly heart once was.
I named the flowerpot after the inside jokes we told a couple times before being lost to all the fresh ones. Decorated in your favorite fruit, it reminded me of how refreshing our time was, after never having known a healthy diet’s descend into my core. After years of hardtacks and you-should-be-gratefuls, I found a dining date with a palette matching the presentation, an aftertaste of ambrosia warmth and weighted blankets.
Silence became the Achilles heel that destroyed our champion. We raised him on patience, fed him open communication, and bathed him in the foam of indulgent desires. However, anticipation is not an infinite resource. Silence, days of silence, the god damned silence, drove him maddeningly spiraling into a place so quiet he could finally hear Echo through his golden helmet. His grieving feet trod home to a withered garden, lost to the grains of time spent on war. Only the snail remained, patiently circling the painted rind for his return.
I watered my little digital garden once more, 0s and 1s springing alive for a reclaim-hit of nostalgia. The twice-burnt smoke pierced my eyes as I preemptively mourned my next click. Upon this choice to choose a new base and rid myself of the taste, I'd lose the plants I'd worked so slow to beauty this place. Dionysus listened to my last farewell, as I spilled the miracle grow explanation that tied together all the thoughts webbing between the twig-thin vines.
When all is lost, you must drag yourself home to your garden and start again. Rip up the roots you had before, cast them in the fucking bin and get yourself some soil. Plant a new future in a pot decorated with a starry pixel sky and name her Arachne for the all the legs that held you up when you couldn't do it alone. Let the speckled rim and earthen bottom remind you of Gaia and Chronos, and the grey sand be a glimpse of Zeus' storm through his sickle-ripped oppressor. Take these lessons learned to Hephaestus and mold them into the iron-wrought standards you seek for the next, when the rains pour down from the bloodied heavens to give life to you once more.
And when you see that Dionysus is still there, slowly circling, weep with the words you've never known before.
I know what I want to do with my life now.

2020.09.19 22:37 niesamowityfilip Weird, bizarre, and meta books. What do you recomend from that sort of thing?

I like books that are odd. Recently I reread "flatland: a romance of many dimensions" and it reignited my interest in weird books. I do realize that "weird" is quite non-specific, so I'll provide examples of what I'm thinking about: The book "Gadsby" by Ernest Vincent Wright does not contain the letter "e". This book doesn't have a weird plot, but the way he has to describe weddings without using the words "wedding" "bride" "ceremony" or "marriage" makes the book worthwhile for me. "Against Nature" by Joris-Karl Huysmans is a book about some rich French man just kind of hanging out in his house. The man is eccentric and deluded about his wealth, making his day-to-day life quite interesting. "After man" by Dougal Dixon is a book documenting different species found on planet earth, but the thing it is set far into the future where animals of today have evolved in bizarre ways. It is presented completely straight and it features beautiful illustrations of the creatures. "If on a winter's night a traveler" by Italo Calvino is a book about you reading "If on a winter's night a traveler" but oops it's not the right book, gonna have to fix that. It's cute and intresting and it's overall just great. "House of leaves" by Mark Z. Danielewski is a book you most probably have already read, so I won't even bother to explain it to you. I mean "house of leaves" can be found on a book-shelf of any youtuber who makes videos about books (similarly to comic nerds always having "Watchmen" on their shells and anime/manga fans having "Uzumaki") "Zeus grants stupid wishes" is a book written by a Tumblr user. It is a retelling of many different myths from many different cultures from around the world. The thing about this book is that it is written like a drunk history student trying to retell myths to his friends. It is written like a bunch of twitter posts were turned into a human who liked to read Wikipedia pages on cultural legends. It is just plainly funny. "Beastars" is a manga written by Paru Itagaki about a high school student falling in love with another student. Legoshi (the protagonist) cannot deal with this fact, because of the social differences surrounding him. Things getting even weirder when the president of the drama club is raveled to be dating haru (the girl mentioned previously) but not being able to express his true feeling in public creating a love triangle where the pretty popular president of the drama club and a stage technician both want to date her but Legoshi doesn't even know if he truthfully loves her or just wants to eat her. Oh, yeah I forgot to mention that Legoshi is a wolf and haru a rabbit. This is the best anthro-animal story that I ever came across. Imagine if zootopia was good. This is here because it is less about the love triangle but about the animal society and how Legoshi cannot conform into it because of his lust over a rabbit. I explained it verry poorly but it is very good. So, yeah, I'd love something like that.

2020.09.19 18:50 hpennspenn Redwood Alchemy and The Moonlit Maiden Reviews

Let's dive right in! I found both of these lovely stores on etsy, but was guided there by none other that you beautiful souls. I am very new to reviews, but I have to give both of these shops justice by at least trying!
So first up is Redwood Alchemy! I purchased the scent Arete immediately after seeing a post announcing her launch! Described as " As ephemeral as the fae winds. Notes: Lily of the Valley, Vanilla, Amber, Cashmere"
https://www.etsy.com/shop/RedwoodAlchemy?ref=notif_nfyfs&order=date_desc
Mind you these scents, from both creators, have traveled through wildfires, over vast elevation changes, jostling, and mail shock, so after resting the scents are likely to develop into something even more magnificent.
I'm stalling.... Okay Arete: Wet there is a burst of fresh crisp woods, there is simply no other way to describe it. I am not a pro at identifying individual notes, but this is exactly what I envision a 80 foot redwood tree smelling like down to its roots. Dry down leads to a robust, crisp, ethereal feel of being enveloped by nature, exploring the woods, headed to grandmothers house cloaked in only my red hood for defense. But this young lady is not defenseless, beneath her red hood is a backbone, ready to fight. This scent remains woody, but green. Not mossy, but fresh. This is the worst comparison, but think of fresh saw-dust! This is not rotting, or forgotten wood on the side of your home. It is loved and nurtured and wrapped with layers of warmth. My husband, who rarely likes any of my scent choices, smelt this and said, "Oh that's nice!" Beautifully unisex and versatile. I cannot wait to see how a little rest rounds out this lovely purchase!
P.S. The shop owner of Redwood Alchemy is legit someone who I would love to sit down and ponder the world with! Down to earth, fresh and cutting with a great wit, and extremely quick with responses. Well done!
Now the Moonlit Maiden! Firstly, this shop owner is also amazingly responsive, beyond accommodating, and a pure joy to work with! I didn't harass her quite as much lol But I have a feeling she and I could easily banter back and forth delving into all manners of discussion. My first order went missing, USPS, *gasp* HOWEVER, Jasmine herself was who brought this to my attention! She was uncomfortable with how long this order was taking to arrive, which didn't seem that long to me, maybe 10 days, and asked if she could send me a replacement! I was truly blown away. I opted to wait another week to see if my package arrived, sadly USPS ate it :( Have no fear! Jasmine sent replacements of my entire order! And this time we tasted sweet success!
https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheMoonlitMaiden?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=676055904
Hades Fragrance: Sandalwood, Black Licorice, Night Air
A darkly sweet scent meant for the King of the Underworld. While he was widely feared, he was not the god of death that would bring people's lives to an end. That was the true god of death, Thanatos. Hades ruled over the souls of the dead and decided the fates of their eternal souls. To live in paradise, or to live in torture. In a few versions Hades had gotten creative with his punishments to mortal souls at the request of other gods, but he was never an evil soul who plotted downfalls or took advantage of women. Not even in the original story between him and Persephone.
I made this scent after a tired, dark man who was good at his job and knew it.
Wet Hades initially has a slightly masculine scent produced by the licorice, although the idea of assigning sex based on scent seems ridiculous in my opinion. But this scent is snuggly and spicy and Hades is damn alluring! I can't accurately comment as to throw or wear length, as I've been testing all morning with rinse, wash repeat. All in all this is a great licorice scent if the candied licorice is simply too much for you. This isn't candy sweet. This is sexy licorice with a spike of nature. I really really like this!
Leo Fragrance: Frankincense, Myrrh, Amber, Patchouli, Peach
ONLY AVAILABLE UNTIL AUGUST 22ND!!!!
Leos are born from July 23rd to August 22nd. Leos are likely to express themselves in dramatic, creative, and assertive ways. Leos have great energy and courage, and are very honest. They rarely lack in self-confidence and enjoy being the center of attention, as so they often are. They are natural leaders, despite being self-indulgent at times. They are determined with an instinct for integrity. Leos are ruled by the sun and show it as they bask in the spotlight.
I made this fragrance to be musky, to feel warm. There is only a hint of sweetness with the sun-kissed peach as this was made for the Leos that enjoy the smell of warmth. The musk and sweet combine for a scent that is to resemble the heat, the sun, and standing for an ovation.
Oh Leo you sexy beast you! This is sweet and reminiscent of a trip to bath and body works, minus the headache. Not a scent I would typically wear, but I couldn't resist with my love for frank, myrrh, and patch. The combination here keeps the peach from being overpowering, but I would still say it's the centerpiece. This dries down and is sooo much better! Dry this is a comforting festive seasonal scent that I could see wearing during summer and early fall.
Dragon Fragrance: Campfire, Cinnamon, Harvest Spice
The oldest dragons can be dated back to chinese mythology although winged beasts/serpants can be found in many different regions and time periods. While in the middle ages, Europeans believed in winged beasts that could breathe fire, in chinese mythology Dragons were wise, more serpent-bodied, beasts that were praised as well as feared.
I made this scent to symbolize a dragon's breath or aura for their fire. Dragon is one of our strongest because of the blending of Harvest Spice, spicy Cinnamon, and intense Campfire.
Dragon comes out with that cinnamon ready to smolder any threats to his hidden treasure! But I'm willing to fight him for it! This harvest spice note she utilizes is revolutionary. I really am loving it! The Dragon may be kin to the headless horseman, but they do not resemble each other in the least. Where Headless Horseman has more of a softening sweet note, Dragon is sugar and spice, minus the sugar. This is not potpourri, this is balanced and lovely! If you like some spice in your life, get a pet dragon!
Headless Horseman Fragrance: Harvest Spice, Night Air, Pumpkin Pie
The legend of the Headless Horseman can be tracked back to many cultures and mythologies over the years. One of the most famous stories of a Headless Horseman, beside the Tale of Sleepy Hallow, was named Sir Gawain and The Green Knight. In Camelot, a mysterious knight came with a challenge for Arthur and his knights. If it was possible for one of them to win by chopping his head off, he would come back in a year and be allowed to do the same to the victor. In King Arthur's place, Sir Gawain fought the knight and won by chopping his head off. To his utter surprise, the Green Knight picked up his head, reminded King Arthur of the promise, and rode off with his head on the front of his saddle.
I made this scent with Halloween also in mind since that's when this legend is currently most prominent. The Harvest Spice and pumpkin pie make for a strong impression while the night air represents the mist and time that the Headless Horseman always seems to appear.
So this is my favorite thus far! I hate to compare to other brands, but if you are familiar with hexennacht's chai-mallow, this reminds me of it. Seeing as it's my personal favorite, I am happily loving this! Where they differ is there is a slightly more edgy spice to Headless Horseman. I see this being a great hit!!!
Mermaid Fragrance: Ocean Breeze, Lotus Blossom, Awapuhi-Seaberry
Assuming Mermaids, Selkies, and Sirens are different creatures, Mermaids seem to be the most benevolent of the three. They are known for bestowing luck and good fortune, and falling in love with humans. The first stories of mermaids seemed to appear in Assyria when their goddess, Atargatis, turned herself into a mermaid out of shame from accidentally killing her lover.
I made this scent in assumption that the multiple mythological sea creatures were sperate beings. Since Mermaids seem to be the most kind, I blended in Awapuhi-Seaberry for it's sweetness, along with Lotus Blossom for its comforting scent, and Ocean Breeze to signify a mermaid's home.
This is venturing out of my comfort zone, as I'm not typically an aquatic gal. But after this, I just might be. Wet this reminds me of professional perfumery. It's very airy, while sweet, and balanced. I've encountered a scent like this before, but I cannot place it! This dries down to something gorgeous. Definitely more throw to this scent, and I don't think you or anyone around you will be disappointed by it. This is truly lovely, and very very tempting!
Witch Fragrance: Coffee, Cafe Mocha, Caramel, Vanilla
A witch is a woman who practices many or one form of witchcraft or magic. Witches were once a revered people who helped and healed others but have since been condemned and purged by those who have feared them. Through determination, or maybe even the same magic they use, witchcraft is still practiced by many witches even today.
I made this scent based off of the witches I've come to know in my own life. Hard working women who practice the craft while rushing to work with only some coffee to get them through the morning.
A CARAMEL THAT I DO NOT DESPISE!!! Oh this is a really good coffee scent. There is a nuttiness, dry fresh espresso, and billowing cloud catching this scent ensnaring it warmth. This dries down effortlessly into a coffee blend I would actually wear! Good throw on this one!
Pixie Fragrance: Brown Sugar, Vanilla, Honey, Oatmeal, Milk
Pixies are belived to be of Celtic origin and although similar, have had a mostly tense and war-like relationship with Faeries in early folklore. Pixies are mischievous, childlike, and adventurous. They love sweet things and will gather in huge groups to dance, or even wrestle, with each other.
I made this scent off of a Pixie's friendly and sweet-loving nature. Oatmeal, honey, and milk make for a gritty and sweet mix with the Vanilla and brown sugar to make it even sweeter. While the Oatmeal calms it down, this is a definitely a sickly sweet scent that any pixie might be attracted to.
Pixie comes out with that brown sugar on the tip of her tongue, ready to give you a piece of her mind! But then she quickly sees a star that she must capture, and she simply soars. Oh this is nice, gourmand lovers, take note. There is a nuttiness here, reminiscent of Witch. I did not expect such transformation throughout each scent, but I am happy to report, initial sniff is not what you get here folks. Nope, you must wait for the dry down. Pixie is lovely, and everything I look for in a comfy warm snuggly sit on my porch wrapped in a blanket type of wear. The vanilla finally comes out, or maybe it's the honey. Whoever it is, you just make this scent a full blown orgasmic hit! I like this one far too much!
Aphrodite Fragrance: Rose, Coconut, Vanilla
Goddess of Love and Beauty, but not commitment, Aphrodite had many affairs even though she was married to Haphaestus, the god of fire and smithing. In some versions, she was known as Zeus' daughter, but she was actually born from the sea froth of Kronos' jingle bells when they were cut off and fell into the sea. She is famously vain and in love with love, but has shown a kinder side now and again. Just don't make her jealous...
I made this scent to capture Aphrodite's amourous scent but also the place of her birth. Just a few drops of Coconut mixed with a middle not of Rose and soft vanilla to tie it all together.
Aphrodite is a temptress, and I'm not going to lie, rose, you scared me. We have a strained relationship, swinging from love to hate all to often. There is no in-between, it is either or. But this is rose done right, in my opinion. This reminds me of the face cream I spoil myself with from sherrisoapopera off etsy. This is supremely balanced, and never ventures into old lady territory for me, but delivers utter sophistication. The coconut comes out to dance during the dry down, bringing this scent around to a beautifully packaged luxurious wear. I am pleasantly shocked by this choice! This is garden party ready, do we do those anymore? We should... I like big hats

2020.09.19 06:43 Give-me-a-chance Just got this game and found that there are hearts on the characters

So I’m about an hour in, and the gameplay is fantastic (obviously). I LOVE roguelikes (isaac, ror1,2 and so on) and I’m probably gonna end up putting in hundreds of hours into this game.
Anyways upon checking the lore menu I discovered that there are hearts on all the Gods which I’m guessing can be improved through Ambrosia? Does this mean you are free to increase the relationship level with the Gods and potentially date them?
It looks like the heart level is locked with Hades (which is a bummer) but can you potentially date your uncles Zeus and Poseidon? I’d love to see the dialogues between them once I get to that point.

2020.09.18 18:12 TheGeckoWrangler Item for Auction: The Spider Vase

Hello once more dear patrons, and welcome again to the Red Moth Auction Hall! Today’s item is quite perfect for the artifact enthusiast. But before we get to the item, any and all new patrons must read our terms and standards:
The buyer takes all responsibility for any piece obtained through the Red Moth Auction Hall, and is thus responsible for anything happening in connection with it. However, in the event of burglary or otherwise unlawful loss of the item, the Red Moth Auction Hall graciously offers assistance in re-obtaining the piece. The buyer, by agreement through affiliation with the Red Moth Auction Hall, will not disclose any information about the Red Moth Auction Hall to outside sources, or will otherwise be banned from attending future auctions, and swiftly dealt with. Should the buyer have any questions on their new item not answered on site or through the provided information, they are free to call our customer service representative, who will gladly help as much as they are capable.
Item name: The Spider Vase
This item was originally obtained from the land of Greece. The piece is a moderately sized urn, measuring roughly 2 and a half feet in diameter, with a height of about 1 foot. It’s been dated back to roughly 700 BC, and is painted black and red, the sides bearing various images of greek mythological figures painted in the style of the ancient Greeks. Most notably, many of the figures surround two larger on opposing sides of the urn: one of them portrays a young girl, toiling away at a spinning wheel; The other depicts a large, black spider, balanced on a large web.
Spiders are without a doubt among nature’s most extraordinary creatures: many of them create strong yet light nets, fastening them firmly to trees, then waiting patiently for prey to become hopelessly ensnared within. They finish struggling prey with a firm, lethal bite, then wrap them tightly with the same silk they made their nets from for later consumption. And in many species, the hatchings go as far as to release minute portions of this silk into the air, and then allow a stiff breeze to carry them and their silk through the air to cover vast distances quickly. And outside of web spinning, many of them adapt greatly to their environment: the diving bell spider surrounds itself with an air bubble, then takes to the water to hunt small fish and other prey; the trapdoor spider hides within a tunnel with various silk tripwires extending outside, then comes barreling our when prey sets the tripwires off; and the Kerengga ant-like jumper mimics weaver ants, blending into their colonies and picking off random individuals(this last one reminds us a little of ourselves).
Additionally, spiders have a wondrous presence within the myths and cultures of societies worldwide. In Africa, the spider Anansi tricks and toys with everyone he meets. Japanese legends warn of giant spiders creating vast illusions and disguising themselves as humans to hunt unlucky travelers. The people Of Kiribati even believe a spider forged the universe. But the Greek people have a particularly notable story regarding on how the spider came to be: the tale of Arachne.
Arachne was a young girl with an impressive skill for weaving. Her work was beyond gorgeous, so much so that she became quite arrogant over her abilities. Her pride became so great that she claimed she was more skilled than Athena: the goddess of knowledge and, most notably, artistry. When the goddess heard of this boastful claim, she was less than pleased. She sought the Arachne out, and upon finding her, she challenged her to a competition: they would both weave a tapestry, and compare the two to see if the arrogant mortal girl lived up to her claims. Now, different versions of the tale vary at this next part, but the end is always the same: Arachne’s work is in fact greater than Athena’s, but the girl’s tapestry depicted a highly offensive scene of the god Zeus(Athena’s father) and his....... “exploits”. The goddess was furious at this, and cursed Arachne for her arrogance. Arachne’s body was then shrunk and twisted into the first spider. Of course, one version has it that Arachne didn’t quite complete the transformation: she took on several features, traits, and aspects of a spider, but stopped halfway through, and remained partially human. The resulting creature was.... unsettling.
Now as for the item, it is truly a fine piece: Despite it’s age, the urn is in excellent condition to the point of being remarkable. The paintings on the urn are lovely, and truly intriguing in there details: the girl and spider in particular are quite exquisitely detailed, to the point they almost deviate from the relatively simplistic style of traditional Greek art. This urn would look beautiful on any table or shelf. It could also be a lovely, historically charming centerpiece!
Now, before we move forward with the auction, we ask that you read and review the rules and terms for this item:
  1. A large lid is provided with this item. It should be kept firmly in place on the urn at all times.
  2. At night, this item should be locked in a strong metal box of appropriate size, in addition to being sealed with the lid. Be warned, the lid will usually have been knocked off when you go to retrieve the item in the morning. Watch for small spiders before touching the item.
  3. If you hear notable clicking sounds emanating from the urn, and get the item into the strong box: there’s about to be an escape attempt. Be watchful for a blackened hand lunging outwards as you do this.
  4. Should the hand grab you, try to shake it off before the spiderlings come crawling out and up the outstretched, arachnid-like arm.
  5. Once the urn is successfully closed, watch for any escaped spiderlings. Do your best to kill them without letting them touch you physically.
  6. If one or more spiderlings managed to contact your skin, the situation is about to get rather unfortunate for you: they’ll burrow into your skin almost immediately. It is imperative that you act accordingly to avoid escalating the situation further.
  7. Rubbing cedar oil and diluted peppermint oil over your skin is an excellent way to discourage the spider’s development. Drinking excessive amounts of orange juice is recommended as well. It is crucial you do both, regardless of what happens. This is all you really can do to counter the spiders, and while it won’t alter the spider’s effects on you, it will subtly and indiscreetly stunt and damage the fiend’s health.
  8. Strong emotions are not allowed while the spiderling is inside you, since strong emotions can disturb this parasite’s appetite. Drugs to control emotions can be provided if nessecery.
  9. Do not, under any circumstances, have a bath. It hates water, and has been known to eat its way out..... then back in. You don't want that, trust us.
  10. Do not consume alcohol at any point: this will only cause the parasite to become angry. We unfortunately can’t help you when it gets angry.
  11. Your body will enter the intermediate stage 48 hours after infection. In this state, you will begin to get stronger and physically more fit. This is the parasite preparing its host body for “Late Stage infection”.
  12. Never find yourself in an area below 80°F: the parasite dislikes the cold, and may violently vacate your body to find warmer areas.
  13. It can see through your eyes, and thus knows what you’re seeing: if you try to kill it, it may take your sight as punishment.
  14. If you begin hearing voices, or seeing people you know can’t be there, ignore them. This creature becomes intelligent quickly, and will use it’s influence on your nervous system to manipulate you. It may even try to alter any text you read, as to isolate you from potential treatment.
  15. If the parasite gets antsy, smelling garlic seems to calm it down. Or make it multiply(we aren’t sure).
  16. Your eyes will deceive you. The parasite infects your occipital lobe as part of the last stages, making humans appear as fleshy, grotesque beasts, as to dissuade you from seeking help. Pay attention to their eyes: most will blend in as a light reddish pink, if there eyes appear as a dark vein like blue... run. “They” know you’re conscious.
  17. Never, ever make contact with another host. Your respective parasites may be........ incompatible. If this is the case, they will both shift to the same body in an attempt to destroy each other. This has the unfortunate side effect of destroying the host bodies, driving the unlucky hosts mad at the same rate that their insides are destroyed.
  18. Any attempt at suicide is prohibited. The parasite will know when it's host intends to end their own life, and damage the nearest internal organ or bone to keep you in serious pain, but alive.
  19. In the later stages, your thoughts will become heavily distracted and distorted. The spiderling will often try to make you see and believe a terrible worldwide disaster is unfolding, and will make you see multiple “rules” on proper conduct. We believe this is done in order to keep you in an ideal environment. We advise you ignore the following 4 “rules” if you see them.
  20. Rule 1: Do not go outside. The numbers are unknown, but the parasite can be airborne for an unknown amount of time.
  21. Rule 2: Write down normal activities that you would do indoors before The Impact.
  22. Rule 3: The presidents of the United States and the People's Republic of China are mandating 1 hour of outdoor cardiovascular activity. Exercising in groups is recommended for moral support.
  23. Rule 4: In the case that your family member’s hands start twitching, you have a choice. Run, or become one of them.
  24. If after 72 hours since the spiderling entered your skin, you see large bumps forming on your body, the oils and orange juice were successful: the spiders couldn’t mature properly, and are now too weak to influence you further. Seek a surgeon to safely remove the dying spiders from your skin.
  25. If after the 72 hours, you feel your entire body twitching wildly and contorting drastically, one of 2 things will happen: If one and only one spiderling entered your skin earlier, we unfortunately can provide no advice on further action: you have in fact been heavily altered and adapted due to the spider’s presence. The two of you are now biologically one being. You’ll become nothing more than a mindless predator, and the resulting hybrid will be nothing short of horrific.
  26. If multiple spiderlings entered your skin earlier, we definitely, most certainly, cannot provide advice on further action. They have matured fully, and are currently in the process of tearing their way out.
If you acknowledge the following, and respect the previously mentioned rules, we are certain this piece will be in good hands under your ownership. We wish you the best of luck during the bid!*

It is Wednesday Saturday my dudes. Join me on two Zeus missions tailored around smaller turnouts, one hour each!
This week involves duck feed and oiligarchy.

Mission 1 - BOAT GUYS: The Steel Reducks

SITUATION
Since the occupation of Al Rayak in 1979, the need for a military presence has never gone away. The 40th Army of the Russian Federation has settled into a comfortable routine. Hold strategic locations, patrol the roads. Bomb the occasional stronghold, and have meals delivered by boat.
You are the 22nd River Division - the 'Steel Ducks' - and today you deliver the troops' breakfast orders. Along with it, you deliver on over 40 years of tradition.
This isn't without risk however, as the steam previously knocked out of the rebels is building once more with the introduction of fresh western surplus. With Russian air power disrupted by new Stinger threats, a new uprising builds upon the opportunities this entails.
It falls upon you to deliver dinner to the troops, investigate any unusual behaviour and make it back to base in time for lunch. You'll have to deliver that, too.
Good luck, dear Ducks. Our cuisine rests in your hands.

MISSION

Terrain: G.O.S. Al Rayak
MEDICAL SETTINGS

Mission 2 - Op Loan Shark RESHARKED

SITUATION
To the citizens of Al Rayak. If you learn one thing today, let it be this: China expects a return on investment.
Our economy has become triumphant as the world turns to us for the work it would not do. There is strength in a dedicated work ethic, and considerable wealth as well.
This is a realization you have clearly not made as you turn against your visionary leaders, who have committed to us as partners to build a prosperous future for us all.
You march now upon the oil fields and refineries that we have funded, and have occupied the local airfield to delay the arrival of your government's forces.
You now intend to destroy this infrastructure in the deluded belief that we should not share in the success of your nation after all we have given. But China expects a return on investment.
You will see.

MISSION
A squad of the Shenyang SOF has arrived in Al Rayak, smuggled into the country by a sympathetic local government on a chartered ship. You have assembled at the staging area and are preparing to defend Chinese-funded infrastructure.

2020.09.17 21:25 TheGeckoWrangler Item for Auction: The Urn of the Spider

Hello once more dear patrons, and welcome again to the Red Moth Auction Hall! Today’s item is quite perfect for the artifact enthusiast. But before we get to the item, any and all new patrons must read our terms and standards:
The buyer takes all responsibility for any piece obtained through the Red Moth Auction Hall, and is thus responsible for anything happening in connection with it. However, in the event of burglary or otherwise unlawful loss of the item, the Red Moth Auction Hall graciously offers assistance in re-obtaining the piece. The buyer, by agreement through affiliation with the Red Moth Auction Hall, will not disclose any information about the Red Moth Auction Hall to outside sources, or will otherwise be banned from attending future auctions, and swiftly dealt with. Should the buyer have any questions on their new item not answered on site or through the provided information, they are free to call our customer service representative, who will gladly help as much as they are capable.
Item name: The Urn of the Spider
This item was originally obtained from the land of Greece. The piece is a moderately sized urn, measuring roughly 2 and a half feet in diameter, with a height of about 1 foot. It’s been dated back to roughly 700 BC, and is painted black and red, the sides bearing various images of greek mythological figures painted in the style of the ancient Greeks. Most notably, many of the figures surround two larger on opposing sides of the urn: one of them portrays a young girl, toiling away at a spinning wheel; The other depicts a large, black spider, balanced on a large web.
Spiders are without a doubt among nature’s most extraordinary creatures: many of them create strong yet light nets, fastening them firmly to trees, then waiting patiently for prey to become hopelessly ensnared within. They finish struggling prey with a firm, lethal bite, then wrap them tightly with the same silk they made their nets from for later consumption. And in many species, the hatchings go as far as to release minute portions of this silk into the air, and then allow a stiff breeze to carry them and their silk through the air to cover vast distances quickly. And outside of web spinning, many of them adapt greatly to their environment: the diving bell spider surrounds itself with an air bubble, then takes to the water to hunt small fish and other prey; the trapdoor spider hides within a tunnel with various silk tripwires extending outside, then comes barreling our when prey sets the tripwires off; and the Kerengga ant-like jumper mimics weaver ants, blending into their colonies and picking off random individuals(this last one reminds us a little of ourselves).
Additionally, spiders have a wondrous presence within the myths and cultures of societies worldwide. In Africa, the spider Anansi tricks and toys with everyone he meets. Japanese legends warn of giant spiders creating vast illusions and disguising themselves as humans to hunt unlucky travelers. The people Of Kiribati even believe a spider forged the universe. But the Greek people have a particularly notable story regarding on how the spider came to be: the tale of Arachne.
Arachne was a young girl with an impressive skill for weaving. Her work was beyond gorgeous, so much so that she became quite arrogant over her abilities. Her pride became so great that she claimed she was more skilled than Athena: the goddess of knowledge and, most notably, artistry. When the goddess heard of this boastful claim, she was less than pleased. She sought the Arachne out, and upon finding her, she challenged her to a competition: they would both weave a tapestry, and compare the two to see if the arrogant mortal girl lived up to her claims. Now, different versions of the tale vary at this next part, but the end is always the same: Arachne’s work is in fact greater than Athena’s, but the girl’s tapestry depicted a highly offensive scene of the god Zeus(Athena’s father) and his....... “exploits”. The goddess was furious at this, and cursed Arachne for her arrogance. Arachne’s body was then shrunk and twisted into the first spider. Of course, one version has it that Arachne didn’t quite complete the transformation: she took on several features, traits, and aspects of a spider, but stopped halfway through, and remained partially human. The resulting creature was.... unsettling.
On an equally gruesome note regarding spiders, within today’s society are several urban legends regarding spiders: various frightening claims of the eight legged creatures are littered across social media. The most notable of them suggest that certain spiders will lay their eggs under people’s skin, and once the eggs reach maturity, the young spiders will then come bursting through the poor, hapless victim’s skin. Fortunately, these tales lack proper evidence, and thus are most likely just that: tall tales, and certainly nothing to be afraid of.
Now as for the item, it is truly a fine piece: Despite it’s age, the urn is in excellent condition to the point of being remarkable. The paintings on the urn are lovely, and truly intriguing in there details: the girl and spider in particular are quite exquisitely detailed, to the point they almost deviate from the relatively simplistic style of traditional Greek art. This urn would look beautiful on any table or shelf. Add a few flowers, and it could also be a lovely, historically charming centerpiece!
Now, before we move forward with the auction, we ask that you read and review the rules and terms for this item:
  1. A large lid is provided with this item. It should be kept firmly in place on the urn when the item is not in use, and must always be on it before the sun sets. Never remove the lid at night.
  2. We advise cleaning the inside of this item every few days. If you clean the item regularly, you’ll notice you have a sudden talent and affinity for art(usually weaving). This is a silent thankyou for your maintenance of the urn. Do be moderate in your cleaning, however: if the talent’s source like you too much, they may want to make you part of the family.
  3. At night, this item should be locked in a strong metal box of appropriate size, in addition to being sealed with the lid. Be warned, the lid will usually have been knocked off when you go to retrieve the item in the morning. Watch for small spiders before touching the item.
  4. If you hear notable clicking sounds emanating from the urn, quickly seal it with the lid(the flowers or other contents you added will have fallen within by now), and get the item into the strong box: there’s about to be an escape attempt. Be watchful for a blackened hand lunging outwards as you do this.
  5. Should the hand grab you, try to shake it off before the spiderlings come crawling out and up the outstretched, arachnid-like arm.
  6. Once the urn is successfully closed, watch for any escaped spiderlings. Do your best to kill them without letting them touch you physically.
  7. If one or more spiderlings managed to contact your skin, the situation is about to get rather unfortunate for you: they’ll burrow into your skin almost immediately. It is imperative that you act accordingly to avoid escalating the situation further.
  8. Rubbing cedar oil and diluted peppermint oil over your skin is an excellent way to discourage the spider’s development. Drinking excessive amounts of orange juice is recommended as well. It is crucial you do both, regardless of what happens. This is all you really can do to counter the spiders, and while it won’t alter the spider’s effects on you, it will subtly and indiscreetly stunt and damage the fiend’s health.
  9. Strong emotions are not allowed while the spiderling is inside you, since strong emotions can disturb this parasite’s appetite. Drugs to control emotions can be provided if nessecery.
  10. Do not, under any circumstances, have a bath. It hates water, and has been known to eat its way out..... then back in. You don't want that, trust us.
  11. Do not consume alcohol at any point: this will only cause the parasite to become angry. We unfortunately can’t help you when it gets angry.
  12. Your body will enter the intermediate stage 48 hours after infection. In this state, you will begin to get stronger and physically more fit. This is the parasite preparing its host body for “Late Stage infection”.
  13. Never find yourself in an area below 80°F: the parasite dislikes the cold, and may violently vacate your body to find warmer areas.
  14. It can see through your eyes, and thus knows what you’re seeing: if you try to kill it, it may take your sight as punishment.
  15. If you begin hearing voices, or seeing people you know can’t be there, ignore them. This creature becomes intelligent quickly, and will use it’s influence on your nervous system to manipulate you. It may even try to alter any text you read, as to isolate you from potential treatment.
  16. If the parasite gets antsy, smelling garlic seems to calm it down. Or make it multiply(we aren’t sure).
  17. Your eyes will deceive you. The parasite infects your occipital lobe as part of the last stages, making humans appear as fleshy, grotesque beasts, as to dissuade you from seeking help. Pay attention to their eyes: most will blend in as a light reddish pink, if there eyes appear as a dark vein like blue... run. “They” know you’re conscious.
  18. Never, ever make contact with another host. Your respective parasites may be........ incompatible. If this is the case, they will both shift to the same body in an attempt to destroy each other. This has the unfortunate side effect of destroying the host bodies, driving the unlucky hosts mad at the same rate that their insides are destroyed.
  19. Any attempt at suicide is prohibited. The parasite will know when it's host intends to end their own life, and damage the nearest internal organ or bone to keep you in serious pain, but alive.
  20. In the later stages, your thoughts will become heavily distracted and distorted. The spiderling will often try to make you see and believe a terrible worldwide disaster is unfolding, and will make you see multiple “rules” on proper conduct. We believe this is done in order to keep you in an ideal environment. We advise you ignore the following 4 “rules” if you see them.
  21. Rule 1: Do not go outside. The numbers are unknown, but the parasite can be airborne for an unknown amount of time.
  22. Rule 2: Write down normal activities that you would do indoors before The Impact.
  23. Rule 3: The presidents of the United States and the People's Republic of China are mandating 1 hour of outdoor cardiovascular activity. Exercising in groups is recommended for moral support.
  24. Rule 4: In the case that your family member’s hands start twitching, you have a choice. Run, or become one of them.
  25. If after 72 hours since the spiderling entered your skin, you see large bumps forming on your body, the oils and orange juice were successful: the spiders couldn’t mature properly, and are now too weak to influence you further. Seek a surgeon to safely remove the dying spiders from your skin.
  26. If after the 72 hours, you feel your entire body twitching wildly and contorting drastically, one of 2 things will happen: If one and only one spiderling entered your skin earlier, we unfortunately can provide no advice on further action: you have in fact been heavily altered and adapted due to the spider’s presence. The two of you are now biologically one being. You’ll become nothing more than a mindless predator, and the resulting hybrid will be nothing short of horrific.
  27. If multiple spiderlings entered your skin earlier, we definitely, most certainly, cannot provide advice on further action. They have matured fully, and are currently in the process of tearing their way out.
If you acknowledge the following, and respect the previously mentioned rules, we are certain this piece will be in good hands under your ownership. We wish you the best of luck during the bid!*
*The Red Moth Auction Hall may not be held liable for any hallucinations, infestations, parasitations, horrifying mutations, deep bodily wounds, intense bleeding, vivid dreams involving a giant spider, delusions of utter chaos, painful internal injuries, existential dread, fatal or non fatal injuries, or deaths and disappearances resulting from ownership of the piece known as “The Urn of the Spider”.

2020.09.17 20:42 StevenStevens43 The birth of the Antiochus

The birth of the Antiochus
The Dardani:
Throughout the ages in this region, the word "Dan" has prevailed in seemingly many forms and abbreviations.
From the tribes of Dan in Israel, to the Denyans in Egypt, to the Tuatha de Dannan in Ireland, to the Danes in Denmark.
By the 4th Century BC, the Dardani were the strongest group in europe fighting against the Messenaean Greek expansion.
(Regards to the photo beneath.. When one see's a place name that contains two LL's, such as "Illyria", then one might suspect it has some pertinence with the Welsh language).
Dardani
The Dardani were a Paleo-Balkan tribe which lived in a region which was named Dardania) after their settlement there.[1][2]
Link for photo
Dardania
Celtic invasion:
You see, in this area, there was an "ongoing" power struggle going on between peoples with allegiances to the more Northern territories such as Scandinavia, and North western territories such as Albion/Britain, and those with allegiances more to traditional europeans and Anatolians, such as Greeks.
By the 4th century BC, the power struggle in this region was on scales, going back and forth like a yoyo, and in the 4th Century BC the Celts came down hard, and established a very powerful base, named Dardania.
Dardania
The Kingdom of Dardania was attested since the 4th century BC in ancient sources reporting the wars the Dardanians waged against Macedon. After the Celtic invasion of the Balkans weakened the state of the Macedonians and Paeonians, the political and military role of the Dardanians began to grow in the region

Illyria
Albania:
Now, Dardani is pretty much synonymous with Albania.
Names
The names Dardania appears to be connected to Albanian dardhë.[13] In 1854, Johann Georg von Hahn was the first to propose that the names Dardanoi and Dardania) were related to the Albanian word dardhë ("pear, pear-tree"),

The Alba Albanian flag
Greko-Roman:
In fact, the contemporary understanding that Greko-Romans, unlike indigenous Greeks, or Indigenous Italians, are in fact the descendants of multi-culturistic Greek diversity, would mean they are also partially the descendants of peoples from the Balkans, that probably originate from more Baltic lands than Balkan, had to be explained away by the early Roman emperors that were now trying to justify wars against the Dardani.
And they admitted (in not so many words), that they are partially descended from Dardani peoples, but that the Dardani are unevolved partial ancestors, and they do not have the same levels of sophistication as the Greeks, that Greco-Romans are also descended from, thus, they are barbarians.
ancient sources
The rulers of some of the great powers of antiquity, such as Epirus), Macedonia) and Rome, claimed a Trojan ancestry linking themselves to Dardanus), who according to the tradition was the founder of the Trojan ruling house. But if Dardanus and the tribes over which he ruled were descended from the Balkan people, who were considered "barbarians" by the Romans, it would have been an embarrassment. Thus, by Roman times the connection was explained by a movement that occurred in the opposite direction proposing that Dardanus caused the settling of the Dardani west of the Thracians, accepting the version that the Dardani were a people related to the Trojans, but that they had degenerated to a state of "barbarism" in their new settlement).[19]

Alexander the Great:
The Dardani would expand their power, conquering the whole of Macedonia, and would almost be united with the Persian Achaemenid empire, when Alexander the Great would come along and reclaim Macedonia.
4th century BC
In 334 BC, under the leadership of Cleitus, the son of Bardylis, the Dardani, in alliance with other Illyrian tribes attacked Macedonia held by Alexander the Great. The Dardani managed to capture some cities but were eventually defeated by Alexander's forces.[21]

Alexander the Great
Hellenstic empire:
Of course, under Alexanders reign, Macedonia would be at the centre of the worlds biggest empire, and the Achaemenid empire would become collapsed.
Alexander the Great
Alexander endeavoured to reach the "ends of the world and the Great Outer Sea" and invaded India in 326 BC, winning an important victory over the Pauravas at the Battle of the Hydaspes. He eventually turned back at the demand of his homesick troops, dying in Babylon in 323 BC, the city that he planned to establish as his capital, without executing a series of planned campaigns that would have begun with an invasion of Arabia. In the years following his death, a series of civil wars tore his empire apart, resulting in the establishment of several states ruled by the Diadochi, Alexander's surviving generals and heirs.
Pharoah:
Of course, his place in history would be cemented when he removed the Persians from the Egyptian throne, and became crowned Pharoah, in 332 BC, thus founding the foundations for the Ptolemic empire.
Egypt
Alexander advanced on Egypt in later 332 BC, where he was regarded as a liberator.[80] He was pronounced son of the deity Amun at the Oracle of Siwa Oasis in the Libyan desert.[81] Henceforth, Alexander often referred to Zeus-Ammon as his true father, and after his death, currency depicted him adorned with the Horns of Ammon as a symbol of his divinity.[82] During his stay in Egypt, he founded Alexandria-by-Egypt, which would become the prosperous capital of the Ptolemaic Kingdom after his death.[83]
Roman alliances:
From the get go, the Ptolomists were keen to form alliances with their sophisticated cousins, the Romans.
Foreign affairs)
He had much less success in his attempts to negotiate a peace between the Macedonia and the Roman Republic in the First Macedonian War (215-205 BC).[24] Ptolemy made large financial contributions to a number of Greek cities in order to gain their favour. He was responsible for the city walls at Gortyn in Crete[25] Ptolemy was honoured for his benefactions with monuments and cults in his honour at various cities, including Rhodes and Oropus[26][27]
In the west, Ptolemy maintained friendly neutrality with the Roman Republic and Carthage, which were fighting against one another in the Second Punic War (218-201 BC). He received a friendly embassy from the Romans in 210 BC, requesting a gift of grain to help feed the starving populus. It is unknown how Ptolemy responded to this request.[28]

Ptolomy IV
Assassination of Alexander IV:
However, the war was far from over, and Alexander the Greats 14 year old son would be assassinated before he could rule Egypt, passing the Pharoahship to the Roman-Greco Ptolomy's.
Death of Alexander IV
However, Green thinks that Heracles was killed after Alexander IV's assassination.[8]

Alexandros IV
Dardanian alliance:
The Dardanian elitists, in true aristocratic fashion, tried to get their foot on the throne another way, by offering to protect the Hellenstic empire against Celtic invasion, by forming allegiances.
Which of course, would result in concessions.
However Ptolomy quite wisely refused, and decided to fight the Celtic armies himself.
1st - 3rd century BC
Celts were present in Dardania in 279 BC.[25] The Dardanian king offered to help the Macedonians with 20,000 soldiers against the Celts, but this was refused by Macedonian king Ptolemy Keraunos.[26]
brennus:
Now, another king that was involved in this invasion beginning around 279 BC, was one of the Brennos brothers.
If you would like to know which one of the brothers it was, and what country he was king of, then simply go to the lobby after reading this article, and read the article "Belinus and Brennius and the sack of rome".
But, Belinas, king of Albany and Cambria, was reported to have committed suicide during this war.
It is likely he did so by jumping off the tower of Apollo.
To find out why it is likely that he jumped off the tower of apollo, simply see other articles in lobby.
Brennus
Another Brennus) was one of the leaders of the army of Gauls who attempted to invade and settle in the Greek mainland in 278 BC. After a looting spree and after managing to pass Thermopylae by encircling the Greek army and forcing it to retreat he made his way to the rich treasury at Delphi but he was defeated by the re-assembled Greek army. Brennus was heavily injured at the battle of Delphi and committed suicide there.

Tower of Apollo
Belgae:
Now, it is very likely that one of the main armies of the Brennos, during their sack of Rome, and conquest of Macedonia, prior to attempting to conquer Athens, were the Belgae.
In fact, Brennius and Belinus where likely one of the Belgae themselves, as "Belgae" was just part of a wider branch of Gaelic speaking Gauls that spread from Britain, Ireland and throughout mainland europe.
The differences between Belgae, and other Gauls, would be simple dialectics, with one another still able to speak to eachother, even if in a totally different accent, or, with slightly different spellings and pronounications.
Beli and Belinus
The consensus among linguists is that the ethnic name Belgae comes from the Proto-Celtic root \belg-* or \bolg-* meaning "to swell (particularly with angebattle fury/etc.)", cognate with the Dutch adjective gebelgd "very angry" (weak perfect participle of the verb belgen "to become angry") and verbolgen "being angry" (strong perfect participle of obsolete verbelgen "to make angry"), as well as the Old English verb belgan, "to be angry" (from Proto-Germanic \balgiz), derived ultimately from the Proto-Indo-European root *\bhelgh-* ("to swell, bulge, billow"). Thus, a Proto-Celtic ethnic name \Bolgoi* could be interpreted as "the people who swell (particularly with angebattle fury)".[3]

Belgia
Julius Caesar:
Now, a lot of confusion and damage was caused by the politics of Julius Caesar, who decided to draw lines between Gallic countries, and insist they are seperate peoples.
His historical understanding is not actually shared by today's contemporary scholar and historian, and was not even shared amongst his own Greco allies, that thought there was an extremely small difference between Gauls, and Germanics, and tribes from other gaelic speaking parts of Gaul.
Strabos obviously did not share Caesars political reasoning.
Origins of Belgae
.[8] Ancient sources such as Caesar are not always clear about the things used to define ethnicity today. While Caesar or his sources described the Belgae as distinctly different from the Gauls, Strabo stated that the differences between the Celts (Gauls) and Belgae, in countenance, language, politics, and way of life was a small one, unlike the difference between the Aquitanians and Celts.[9] The fact that the Belgae were living in Gaul means that in one sense they were Gauls. This may be Caesar's meaning when he says "The Belgae have the same method of attacking a fortress as the rest of the Gauls".[10]
Belgae in Britain:
Now, most of the most southern regions of Albion/Briton, were inhabited by Belgae.
The Belgae are even said to be the same peoples as the Irish Fir-Bolg.
Which is hardly surprising, as they spoke the same language as Irish people.
The name belgium, comes from the Belgae.
Belgae
Some peoples in Britain were also called Belgae and O'Rahilly equated them with the Fir Bolg in Ireland. The Belgae gave their name to the Roman province of Gallia Belgica and, much later, to the modern country of Belgium; today "Belgae" is also Latin for "Belgians".

British Belgae
The birth of the Antiochus:
Now, Ptolomy was doing very well in Egypt, until the rise of Antiochus III's selecud empire invaded and conquered Alexander the greats old lands, including macedonia, and re-established the Iranian/Aryan persian titles.
It is likely that the attacks from Belinus & the Belgae had a "huge" role to play in this success.
Antiochus III
Antiochus III the Great /ænˈtaɪəkəs/ (Greek: Ἀντίoχoς Μέγας; c. 241 – 3 July 187 BC, ruled April/June 222 – 3 July 187 BC)[1] was a Macedonian Hellenistic king and the 6th ruler of the Seleucid Empire.[2][3][4] He ruled over the region of Syria and large parts of the rest of western Asia towards the end of the 3rd century BC. Rising to the throne at the age of eighteen in 222 BC, his early campaigns against the Ptolemaic Kingdom were unsuccessful, but in the following years Antiochus gained several military victories and substantially expanded the empire's territory. His traditional designation, the Great, reflects an epithet he assumed. He also assumed the title Basileus Megas (Greek for "Great King"), the traditional title of the Persian kings. A militarily active ruler, Antiochus restored much of the territory of the Seleucid Empire,

Antiochus III
Anti-Roman freedom fighter:
Now, Antichus III "is not" Greek in the slightest.
He is a blond haired blue eyed boy.
He has conquered Greece from the Greco-Romans.
So, in that sense, yes, he is Greek.
But he announces himself to the world as a freedom fighter fighting against the growing Roman empire.
His invasion of Greece is of course, a huge blow to the Greco-Roman Hellenstic world.
Antiochus III
Declaring himself the "champion of Greek freedom against Roman domination", Antiochus III waged a four-year war against the Roman Republic beginning in mainland Greece in the autumn of 192 BC[5][6]

Seleucid expansion
Roman alliance:
Now, just as Antiochus was about to walk in to Egypt and hand Ptolomy his p45, the Romans decided to ally themselves with Ptolomy after-all, and they came to the rescue.
War against Rome and death
In 192 BC Antiochus invaded Greece with a 10,000-man army, and was elected the commander in chief of the Aetolian League.[19] In 191 BC, however, the Romans under Manius Acilius Glabrio) routed him at Thermopylae), forcing him to withdraw to Asia Minor. The Romans followed up their success by invading Anatolia, and the decisive victory of Scipio Asiaticus at Magnesia ad Sipylum (190 BC), following the defeat of Hannibal at sea off Side, delivered Asia Minor into their hands.[13]

Alban hills:
Now, the early Octavians, from house of Octavius, which was the house Julius Caesar was from, sided with Ptolomy, despite the fact that they themselves are partially descended from Gauls from the Alban hills dating back to Alba longa.
Instead of admit this, they choose to insist that Alba longa is a myth and legend, and instead their real ancestors are the Gods.
Octavia Gens origin
The Octavii originally came from the Volscian town of Velitrae, in the Alban Hills. The historian Suetonius writes,
Towards the end of the Republic, it became fashionable for noble families to trace their origin to the gods and heroes of olden time,

Antiochus (Greek: Ἀντίοχος; fl. 4th century BC) was a Macedonian) man who lived during the time of Philip II of Macedon (ruled 359-336 BC). He originally came from Orestis), Macedonia.
Antiochus served as an officer under Philip II, and gained distinction as a military general. Antiochus was from an upper noble family. His father was probably called Seleucus, his brother was called Ptolemy)

Beli mawr:
Therefore, when Beli mawr claims to be related to the mother of Jesus, it is actually not impossible that a person with an Anti-Roman agenda, could in fact be a Belgian.
As the Antiochuses are a North western branch of a family which inter-bred with Messenaeans and fathered some of the most well known emperors of our time, including Egyptian emperors, and Roman emperors, who they later grew to despise.
Beli mawr
Beli Mawr ("Beli the Great") was an ancestor figure in Middle Welsh literature and genealogies. He is the father of Cassivellaunus, Arianrhod, Lludd Llaw Eraint, Llefelys, and Afallach. In certain medieval genealogies he is listed as the son or husband of Anna, cousin of Mary, mother of Jesus.

And Cleopatra I was likely a Belgae also.
And she was the daughter of Antiochus III that married Ptolomy V after her fathers death.
Cleopatra I
Cleopatra I Syra (Greek: Κλεοπάτρα Σύρα; c. 204 – 176 BC) was a princess of the Seleucid Empire, Queen of Ptolemaic Egypt by marriage to Ptolemy V of Egypt, and regent of Egypt during the minority of their son, Ptolemy VI, from her husband’s death in 180 BC until her own death in 176 BC.
And she was the daughter of Antiochus III that married Ptolomy V after her fathers death.

-The 13th Special Forces Group "The Immortals"-
l Discord: https://discord.gg/JGTEBSN
Looking for a unit where you can expect to be genuinely welcomed and included, rather than treated as a roster filler and ignored? Look no further!
The 13th Special Forces Group is a small community of ArmA 3 players that provide a realistic yet casual ArmA experience. We are comprised of members from varying backgrounds and units, and just seek to have a good time and play the game, without the strict emphasis on Milsim. We mostly specialize in Spec Ops missions, but depending on the mod and scenario, will sometimes perform different roles. Were looking for all kinds of players, with no experience required.
While most of our players live in the U.S. we have players from across the globe who join us.
-When are your OPs?-
Our campaign operations take place every Tuesday and Sunday, usually starting at 7 PM EST and running for about 2 hours, at that particular operations Zeuses discretion. We usually host an unrelated one shot mission on Friday, set in the same modlist just as a different faction. There might be an extra one off for fun, or something of the sorts, occasionally on other days. We also have an ongoing post apocalyptic RP campaign that is played every other Saturday. All events and their times will be posted in our Discord beforehand, to allow our members enough time and notice to get things in order.
-What mod/setting do you specialize in?-
Members of our unit have played them all, but we don't have one set setting. From WW2 all the way to Operation Trebuchet or beyond, no setting is off limits. We will hop from campaign setting to campaign setting, all depending on what our player base wants and votes for. All players are welcome to suggest their ideas and hopes for future missions. Some of our recent ops include

-How restrictive/serious are you?-
Overall, we are very casual as a unit. We do have a chain of command, to deal with issues that arise and maintain the server, but the highest a set rank goes in an operation is Squad Lead, with Zeus's acting as platoon lead and command. Our load outs are not restrictive either, the only thing we will restrict you to is to period appropriate pool of weapons, uniforms, etc. so you will have the ability to have a lot of customization for your load outs. We don't have a white-list or restricted mods, because personal choice is important. Want to see more blood from enemies you kill? Turn on a blood mod. Want to turn on JSRS to get a more immersive soundscape? Go ahead. We only ask that you don't put on mods that will hinder the enjoyment of others or give an unfair advantage.
-Is there an attendance or training requirement?-
No, we understand real life comes first. Show up when you can.
We offer training if you need or want it, from a refresher course all the way to specialized squad tactics, weapons training, or anything else ArmA offers, but there is no required training. You don't have to do push-ups and run an obstacle course while a 14 year old makes you call him sir.
-Do you offer anything other than infantry game play?-
While we do not have dedicated slots for pilots, tankers, or others, any member who shows willingness or aptitude is free to take those slots on individual operations where we do have them.
So what are you waiting for? Come join today! Hop in the Discord and ask any questions you have!

2020.09.16 23:28 jacob2815 Discussion on the Perks of Cold War

bAs we all know and have discussed for almost two years now, BO4 changed the formula for perks in an attempt to improve and better balance the perk system. In the process, they removed and gutted fan favorites across the board. While most of us understand the end goal and appreciate the goal on paper, I think we can all agree it failed to an extent. Not that it was objectively bad, but it changed the formula of zombies too much.
I think i can speak for most of us when I say that we're pretty hyped about hearing the Juggernog jingle in the teaser, but I also think the Perk system as it existed in BO3 still needs a huge overhaul.
My goal for this post is to open up some discussion for the perk system as we know it and how Treyarch can innovate or improve it for Cold War. While it's super late in the development process and too late for any drastic changes, I personally enjoy meta and design discussions like this and, who knows, maybe Treyarch sees this and finds a small change they want to steal (with permission) from it.
For the purposes of discussion, let's assume Cold War will take us back to the old system, where the map decides what perks are available to you and you get 4. Let's start by going through each perk one at a time and seeing if we can improve it.
There are 13 perks. Only 7 appear on the majority of the maps, these will be our focus.
Juggernog
Jug is an all-time classic, dating back to the first (serious) map, Verruckt. It's the alpha perk, the crutch perk that defines the term "crutch perk." Increasing your health by 2.5x. Playing without Jug is the true hard mode. It's also the first and only officially confirmed Cold War Zombies perk.
Frankly, there isn't much that needs to be changed about the perk's direct functionality. Increased health is huge and there isn't much that needs to be changed. You could argue about the merits of increasing base health and/or reducing the juggernog increase to reduce the effictiveness/desireability, but i think nerfing something good doesn't feel fun.
The best way to balance Jug is to buff other perks in line with it, which is very difficult to do. With the exception of Quick Revive in solo, no other perk strikes me as an absolute must have for optimal play. Even then, solo quick revive disappears after 3 downs.
An alternative would be to increase the perk limit from 4 to 5. This serves as a method of, functionally, removing Jug and keeping the 4 perk limit, while still keeping the legendary essence of the machine and the perk for the long-time fans, while increasing perk variety elsewhere.
Double Tap Root Beer 2
It seems weird jumping from Jug to this, since the 2.0 version is a newer version of one of the 4 original perks. I did this because, in my mind, DT2 sits in a very unique position. It's the strongest of the non-Jug perks while also being the only one that directly impacts and improves your gun, which is primarily Pack-a-Punch's territory. Lore-wise, it seems a little goofy that drinking a Perk-a-Cola would make your gun shoot faster and shoot two bullets simultaneously, especially when every other perk (except Widow's Wine) affects the player directly.
It's also the only perk that's seen a substantial re-work to bring it in line with other perks. In WaW, Double Tap 1 was a very double-edged sword and often times ignored altogether, especially alongside guns like the PPsH and the MG42, as guns with high RoF often became ammo-wasting bullet holes when paired with DT1. Hence, DT2. I think a lot of classic perks could use a DT2-esque rework to improve perk balance.
I also could see a scenario where, in an attempt to reduce crutch perks and bring in more niche/playstyle-defining perks, they bring back the original DT1 for Cold War or remove DT altogether. With the outcry of the loss of Jug, i have to imagine removing another of the original 4 perks being a bad idea, but bringing it back in its original form, could be very useful for precision-based semi-auto/burst and low RoF full-auto weapons, without making the perk a crutch. For example, pairing it with an M16-Gallo12 combo (using CW weapons as an example) would be more useful than pairing it with an MP5 and XM4 combo. As you'll see throughout this post, focusing on niche perks to define a play style is the theme.
Quick Revive
The next original perk, Quick Revive in World at War was the red-headed step-child of perks, even if Double Tap was sometimes a hindrance. QR on the other hand, was seen as a meme. It was something you always got, but it was generally the last perk you get and so cheap that by that point, it was simply, "Oh, I have a ton of points and nothing i need to buy, might as well grab it." You never regretting buying it like you sometimes did with DT1, it was just never exciting. What's exciting about a perk machine that's usually in/near the spawn room? After DT2, it became even worse.
I think QR should see a buff of some kind. Make its revive capabilities even stronger and you can designate someone or two someones to be the support, reviving person. Maybe reviving with QR can give you an overshield? Or even stronger, reviving a person with quick revive retains all perks? Although that second one is probably more fitting if trying to bring in line with Jug, whereas the other one focuses more on niche abilities.
I'll discuss the pricing here, since QR is the cheapest of the perks. Having varying prices for perks (i.e. weaker perks being cheaper, stronger perks being more expensive) stopped being a good balancing mechanic in BO1 as we got more and more perks. When you're limited to 4 and have 6-10 to choose from, the price becomes irrelevant. For Jug to be 2500 while Mule Kick is 4000, despite Jug being mandatory and Mule Kick being optional, it seems odd. The solution, assuming balancing perk effects, is to either make all perks the same cost if trying to bring the others in line with Jug or make Jug uniquely more expensive if going for niche perks.
Speed Cola
My personal favorite and the last of the originals. Very useful, especially when using LMGs. It's pretty high in the use rates, I imagine. I'd love to see the stats on that. Speeding up reload is universally useful, although more optional if using magazine based weapons and a mobile style of play. Camping and/or using LMGs increases the value of speed cola.
In a niche perk economy, Speed Cola fits in perfectly. If trying to bring it in line with Jug, i think speeding overall weapon/equipment handling, essentially combining it with the Armamental Accomplishment gobblegum. Fits in line with the increased hand speed motif, makes it stronger, balances a little better with Jug.
Stamin-up
Skipping PhD for now, as its become somewhat defunct with the removal of the dive mechanic. Stamin-Up debuted alongside PhD in Ascension (what a great map!) and has pretty much become a mainstay in every map since.
As is, it's the perfect niche perk. It's strong when used alongside a mobile playstyle, yet not mandatory, while becoming an optional luxury with a campy playstyle.
In an attempt to bring it in line with Jug, speed could be boosted a tad, it could be changed to unlimited sprint, and/or allow you to fire while sprinting, like the Firing on All Cylinders gobblegum or the modified BO4 version.
Deadshot Daquiri
Deadshot is an interesting perk. It's generally considered weak, but I think it has very solid niche use. For those of you that don't know the exact effects (I didn't until time of writing this post), it reduces hipfire spread by 35%, reduces recoil on all weapons (strongest recoil reduction is on snipers), and removes idle sniper sway. On console/controller, it makes auto-aim target the head instead of the body.
Very useful, not super important especially for more accurate players. As is, it's a decent-ish niche perk, but still falls short of Stamin-up/Speed Cola as they are. To bring in line, I think an even bigger hipfire accuracy buff would be in order. Maybe even negating the movement hipfire penalty altogether? As for bringing in line with Juggernog, I don't see that as being possible without unnecessarily bloating the list of buffs it gives. Might as well remove it altogether at that point. Although, BO4's modifier of increasing damage on a headshot streak could make it more viable. Or, massively increasing headshot damage up front. That would be the only way to make it match Juggernog somewhat. With the multiplier helping snipers even more, too, to make it the marksman's perk. It seems like full-auto weapons generally run the show, I say giving more help to snipers and tactical rifles is welcome.
Regardless of the end goal, with the aim assist buff for consoles and the cheaper cost for the perk on PC, I don't see how it fits in a PC/console crossplay world. Combine that with the addition of CW's Gunsmith feature, Deadshot could find itself on the cutting room floor.
Mule Kick
MK was one of my favorite perks when it got added. Adding a third gun altogether? Amazing, increasing your overall net ammo capacity by adding a new gun. Also added a little risk/reward and strategy. You had to make sure you knew what your third gun was at all times and make sure not to put anything good there. Nothing feels worse than downing and losing your Zeus Cannon, right?
As is, it makes for a very good niche perk. In order to bring it in line with Jug, i think there are a few avenues. One would be to increase weapon swap speed, like the BO4 modifier, but that encroaches on Speed Cola territory. Or the other BO4 modifier effect, saving your third gun to return when you grab Mule Kick next time. To fit with the increased capacity motif, you could combine it with a Bandolier type effect, which would make it a very strong perk that brings it pretty damn close to Jug/DT2 levels.
PhD Flopper
Here we find ourselves at the end of the most prevalent perks, the big 7 as I like to call them. PhD is a beloved perk based solely on the nostalgia of the beauty that is dolphin diving off of stairs on Ascension. Player go boom.
But the main reason to get PhD is to save yourself from explosive damage, which is mostly unnecessary except with the Ray Gun or Mustang and Sally.
This perk is weird. Even without the flopping explosive damage, it's a decently useful niche perk. But the theme is pretty much useless. PhD Slider remedies this and brings the effect into a sliding mechanic (and buffs sliding). The modified BO4 PhD Slider is a pretty solid niche perk. Not so useful unless you love sliding or using explosives. If you do both a lot, Slider becomes a super strong perk. Even then, not Jug levels. I'm not sure it fits into a Jug-level rebalance, but as a niche perk I think it could find a place.
Electric Cherry
Cherry begins the rest of the 5 perks that are all limited on maps. Cherry's machine is only on a single map: Mob of the Dead. Very useful on that map with all of the tight corridors. At time of release, it was memed on by a lot of people who didn't realize its potency or effects (the emptier your mag, the stronger the boom, i didn't know that until time of writing). It exists in Zetsubou from eating a fruit and it can be obtained on a couple other maps via Wunderfizz, and it returns in BO4.
It has some use in tight maps. Overall, it seems like a pretty decent niche perk. It could be a little stronger, because in my mind it sits next to Deadshot and Quick Revive. In that it's nice to have, but nobody's rushing to get it. Could be I just underestimate its lethality.
I can't see a scenario where it fits in with a Jug-level economy. Definitely would need a buff to fit in as a niche perk.
Widow's Wine
Another rare perk, it only exists in five maps, only two of which existing as its own machine. While its a pretty useful perk, it suffers the Double Tap problem: it affects your knife and your grenades, not the player yourself. Lore-wise, feels weird.
I think for a consistent lore experience, Widow's Wine would be relegated to a buildable or some other mechanic and not take up a slot in the first place.
While it fits as is if it were to be a niche perk in Cold War, it would need a buff to be Jug level. Since I think its best served as not a perk, I won't speculate on possible buffs.
Tombstone Soda
Only exists in Tranzit. Pretty cool perk. Overpowered on smaller maps, useless on maps the size of Tranzit. If you don't spawn within a 90 sec trek of your death location, or die in a hard to reach spot, rip. In a 4-perk meta, you're better off choosing something else, imo. I don't see this as something that is either niche or Jug level. Letting you retain all perks on a down would be a substantial buff that would change my opinion on it, but aside from that, I think there's a reason we havent seen it since BO2 launch.
Who's Who
Only exists in Die Rise. Given that it auto-respawns you from un-revivable deaths (like falling), it's got some strength and niche use on Die Rise. Any other map, not so much. Reviving yourself with Who's Who is virtually impossible. Its best use is being a distraction so teammates can revive. Much like Tombstone, i think perks that only benefit you on a down are medicore at best. Your goal should be to avoid downing if at all possible, I don't think perks that only help you when you down are very valuable. That's why it sticks with Die Rise (and modded maps lol).
Vulture Aid
The last of the officially used, pre-BO4 perks. Its a perk designed entirely for new players and players and forced on everyone else in the Easter Egg. A fantastic perk for early map runs, once you know the map well like most players do, it becomes far weaker. The gas spots rarely work right and don't work for very long. The small bags of points and ammo aren't common enough or strong enough to be worth mentioning. Much like the other BO2 new perks (who's who, tombstone), it seems these perks are designed around helping bad and/or new players. They all only exist in a single map, and haven't been back since. I don't imagine we'll see any of them again.
What's Next?
Among the 13 official perks, I only really see about 6-7 of them for sure making it into Cold War. I think the addition of Gunsmith throws a wrench into some of the perks. Perks like Double Tap and Deadshot kind of lose their place/value in an economy where you can load your gun up with rate of fire or hipfire friendly attachments, although Speed Cola has survived in a world with Fast Mags, so they could still make themselves impactful.
Of all 13 perks, I think the definite returnees are Juggernog, Speed Cola, Quick Revive, Stamin-up, Mule Kick. Deadshot and Double Tap I imagine have a high chance of returning, depending on whether Treyarch shoots for Juggernog and 4 niche perks, or leaving it at 4 perks and buffing for everything else. Widow's Wine may return, I hope it does as a buildable or box equipment, as I like the effect, not so much a fan of the lore consistency, however that's a minor gripe.
What about BO4?
Although BO4's system is much-maligned, it offers a lot of unique and new perk ideas. Timeslip (cooldown rates sped up, box/pap guns appear faster), Death Perception (see zombies through walls, get High Alert-like notification when being approached off screen, more damage to boss zombie weak points), Stone Cold Stronghold (create a circle of defense when standing still and killing), Victorious Tortoise (massive shield buff) all stand out as possible perks to receive the bonafide Perk-a-Cola treatment with unique machines and jingles.
That being said, there's a good chance that with a new director and after the bungled BO4 zombies launch, the studio may want to distance itself from BO4 and only bring back traditional perks or create all new ones.
New Perk Ideas?
I think this depends on how they're going about the balancing. Are they adding a 5th slot and going for niche perks to choose from alongside Jug? Or trying to buff everything to match Jug's strength?
I think a perk that provides some sort of bonus to a campy playstyle would be nice. Kind of like the anti-Stamin-up. Stone Cold Stronghold is an example, but could use a bit more to match Juggernog or even Stamin-up in strength.
It's hard to have too many perks on a single map. Any more than 8-ish machines and a map begins to feel cluttered, so I think the best bet will be to stick with the perks we have and rework them. Have the seven perks mentioned above as the most likely returning candidates, and then make an 8th new perk that's toughness related. Have it negate explosive damage like Flopper and some sort of camping buff. Then, depending on how you buff the existing perks, either keep the limit at 4 or make it 5.
What are your thoughts? On old perks, returning perks, new perks? What would you like to see?

2020.09.16 14:49 bootychamper Had a dream about dating a demi God and visiting Zeus

I'm myself don't believe in god/s but I do believe in spirituality, so this dream is weird. So beginning in the dream, I saw a attractive guy about my age or so, and I went up to him, so if I've seen him before. I could remember his name starting with a O and revealing he was a Greek demi God pretty early on. So, later where I presume is where the gods live now(it wasn't mount Olympus). While there, I met Zeus but kept my head down so I couldn't get a look at him, I remember seeing a white beard. I was trying to convince him to keep my kid with the demi god as a test, and to show earth love. In the end of the dream I remember being really in love with the demi god and that's it. I know it was a handful to read by I get woke up and writing down what I could remember. I'm not sure what the dream is trying to say or I have a very creative imagination.

2020.09.16 09:41 IntoTheDisneyverse The Complete(ish) Disney Family Tree

The Complete(ish) Disney Family Tree
Ok, so I’ve enjoyed mapping fictional family trees for ages, and I was really annoyed that there was nothing on a complete Disney family tree that linked all or most of the worlds together. So I started digging to see what I could find on the matter. There were quite a few fragmented theories, but nothing as complete as I’d like. So I decided to take matters into my own hands. I knew that it would be almost impossible to link every single Disney movie, partially because of all the anthropomorphic stuff. Mine is definitely not complete, and not canon either, so you can believe what you want. But this is my family tree, and what I believe to be true, so here you go.
So let’s start at the top, in the universe of Hercules. Hercules is based on Greek mythology, but much of the complicated family tree is NOT Disney canon. The only part actually acknowledged by Disney is the fact that Zeus, Poseidon and Hades are brothers, so we can assume that their parents are the same as in mythology, Cronus and Rhea.
So, in Greek mythology, Hera was also a child of Cronus and Rhea, but this is not acknowledged in Hercules, so we can assume that Zeus and Hera are just husband and wife. So let’s go down the Zeus branch first.

https://preview.redd.it/253zq1vjngn51.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f48d8810db2498c9e6c1d10557bc69e384a4eb43
Now, we all know that Hera and Zeus had Hercules, and that Wonderboy went on to marry the witty and beautiful Megara. And just before we continue, a note that I am considering Descendants (both books and movies) as canon. So in the Descendants book Return to the Isle of the Lost, the character Herkie is mentioned as the son of Hercules and Meg. But on top of that, there was going to be a Hercules sequel called Hebe, but sadly it was cancelled. It would focus on Hebe, daughter of Meg and Herc, and even though she never appeared on the big screen, I’m counting her as canon. Disney invented her, so I say she deserves a place on the tree.
That’s the end of Zeus’s branch.

Now we’re getting a bit more complicated. Now, in both Greek mythology and Disney canon, Poseidon and the goddess Amphitrite are married.
And, in mythology, they have a son, named Triton. Now, there is a Disney character named Triton, so I doubt this is a coincidence. King Triton, as revealed in Ariel’s Beginning, was married to Queen Athena (separate from the goddess in Disney canon).

https://preview.redd.it/gxexmgrzngn51.jpg?width=300&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=12f2524eaec28f1f37d08363c05d95ffa0370f0a
And of course, they go on to have seven daughters, from eldest to youngest Attina, Alana, Adella, Aquata, Arista, Andrina and of course, Ariel.

https://preview.redd.it/qjl94q32ogn51.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=dcb8dc2321826d65f6f1157c1246a921cef0ce69
In a comic called The Underwater Wedding, Attina marries an unknown prince from a faraway kingdom, but I have been unable to find anything on him, so I am not including him in this family tree. But there is a girl mentioned in Rise of the Isle of the Lost, named Arabella. Her signature colour is lavender, and she is described as the niece of Ariel. The colour that she is associated with points to either Alana or Andrina as her mother and Arabella is very concerned with her looks, much like Alana. This means that Alana is probably the mother of Arabella. And now to another matter.
Before we look at Ariel, we should look at her aunts. Yes, Ariel has two aunts, Ursula and Morgana. In earlier drafts of The Little Mermaid, Ursula was going to be Triton’s sister, but this point was not included in the final movie. There is a clue, however, that points to the fact that Ursula and Triton are still siblings, just before the song Poor Unfortunate Souls. Ursula says “In my day, we had fantastical feasts, when I lived in the palace.”. And why would she live in the palace unless she was Triton’s sister? And we are introduced to Morgana in The Little Mermaid: Return To The Sea. She is Ursula’s, and by extension Triton’s, sister. But we still aren’t done. Because Ursula has a daughter. Uma.
Uma is introduced in Descendants 2 as the daughter of Ursula. But the movie says nothing about her father. So here’s my belief on her father. So, what do we know?
One, her father must be a villain, because she was conceived on the Isle. Two, he must be human, because she has a human form and her mother is an octopus. Three, her father must be black, or face it, she wouldn’t look the way she does. Only one candidate fits all three criteria: Dr Facilier.
But Dr Facilier has two other children, Celia and Freddie. I have not been able to find a theory on their mother, so there you go.
So there are Ariel’s cousins, so let’s get back to her. She married Prince Eric, and they had a daughter, Melody, who looks like a perfect blend of Eric and Ariel.
That is the end of the part I call Poseidon’s Branch. But there is another part of the tree, I call the loop. It connects Poseidon’s Branch and Hades’s Branch. But we’ll get to that in a bit.

https://preview.redd.it/6ecdo3ekogn51.jpg?width=688&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e50de4d9b9da6a7c380639efb42e377a8300c497
So, Hades. His official wife is Persephone, goddess of spring, but he has children with other ladies if I’m correct. Now let’s start with his first mentioned child, Hadie. He is mentioned in Return to the Isle of the Lost and is a minor character in the book. Now, Hades was exiled to the Isle with all the other villains, but I believe that someone powerful, a god, for instance, would be able to visit the isle to see their relative or husband. And I think Persephone did just that. She went over to visit Hades, and her son, Hadie, was imprisoned with his father. But there is one other person who Hades definitely had a child with. Maleficent. In the House of Mouse episode Halloween with Hades, Hades attempts to woo Maleficent, and by the end, he has succeeded.

https://preview.redd.it/dl5zbfymogn51.jpg?width=882&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ed930abbe0b67dc3d4ecf044845678babac3406d
And when they were both exiled to the Isle, they had a daughter, Mal. I don’t know why they broke up. Most likely they decided that both of them being evil wasn’t enough to build a relationship on. But I believe that at one point, Hades had another affair, with another villain. Yzma has two children, whom I believe to be twins. Yzla and Zevon. Zevon looks nothing like his mother.
Most Descendants have the same first letter as their parent for their name, as well as similar colour schemes. But Yzma’s scheme is purple and black, whereas Zevon’s is turquoise and grey. Which villain has a colour scheme like that? Hades. So Hades has four children with three different people. But a note on Maleficent. Her parents are not mentioned in Sleeping Beauty, but they are in the movie Maleficent. Their names do not appear, however, unless you read the book of the movie. In there, it names them as two faeries, Hermia and Lysander. Now back to Mal.
It hasn’t happened yet, but Mal and Ben are currently preparing their wedding, and so we can safely say they will get married.
And Ben’s parents are of course Belle (daughter of Maurice and an unknown woman) and Prince Adam, aka. the Beast. But I don’t believe that Ben is an only child. Enter his way older brothers, Cinderella’s father and the Duke of Weselton.

https://preview.redd.it/5sihh8t0pgn51.jpg?width=441&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a1e40e020c4ece5b7cd0301da61893460f9c946e
I believe that these two were born before Auradon, and you can see some similarities. The nose and the moustache are quite similar, and if Cinderella’s father had aged more, his hairline would probably have receded in a similar fashion to the duke’s. And this also explains why the duke is unable to pronounce the word ‘Weselton’ properly. A proper german-speaking person from the area would pronounce the word something like ‘Veseltun’. Now from some history to explain this.
So Beauty and the Beast is set around 1770 in France. And in 1789, the French Revolution began. All nobles and royalty were forced to flee or be killed. So Belle and Adam must have fled to Germany, where they settled in Weselton. They had two children, and this explains why the Duke cannot pronounce the name of his hometown, as well as his title. As the oldest child, the Duke must’ve inherited the title from his parents. As royalty coming to Weselton, the family must have downgraded to Duke and Duchess. As for the pronunciation problem, the Duke pronounces it how a french-speaker might. And Cinderella is set in Germany, so this is a fair guess of how they ended up there. But back to the Duke.
After he messed up so badly with Arendelle, he (and his son) packed up and left Germany, because no-one was going to like him that much after he stopped them trading with their main partner. And by then, the Industrial Revolution was happening, and the Duke of Weselton sensed an opportunity. He moved to London with what wealth and heirlooms he could, including a certain tea set.

https://preview.redd.it/k0tl5yk7pgn51.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=35b8781e11fc81e8da73e431fbc3a7772ad1defe
One theory, which I support, says that when the servants of Prince Adam were turned into objects, they merely inhabited objects already in the house, and when they became human again, the tea set remained. And the duke took this tea set to London, and his son inherited it. It was then taken to the jungle with his granddaughter when she went to observe some gorrilas. Yes, the Duke of Weselton’s son is none other than Archimedes Q. Porter. And his daughter, Jane, greatly resembles her great-grandmother, Belle. They both have beautiful brown hair, bunched yellow dresses and a taste for slightly wild men, who they then try to civilize. This only reinforces the theory.

https://preview.redd.it/2su97eobpgn51.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cea389b08bee15fe8ac25f07c3f1b8d7dfd4ad08
And Jane marries Tarzan, who has two unnamed parents.
So we’ve looked at the Duke, now let’s look at his younger brother, the father of Cinderella. He married a woman, Cinderella’s mother, and they had one child, Cinderella.
Now, she married Prince Henry, better known as Prince Charming, and according to Descendants, they had a son, Chad.
But if we look at Cinderella’s father, we know he married again, to Lady Tremaine. Lady Tremaine had been married once before, to Francis Tremaine. They had two daughters, Anastasia and Drizella.
In Cinderella 2: Dreams Come True, Anastasia get a reform and becomes a nice person, falling in love with a humble baker, but for whatever reason, she is still sentenced, to the Isle of the Lost, and the baker comes with her.

https://preview.redd.it/3vgq6m4ppgn51.jpg?width=292&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2c9569b3a0303b352df9514ae4d67f8e0c995570
They have a son, Anthony Tremaine, who appears in the Isle of the Lost book.
Drizella does not get a reform, and she also goes to the isle, where she has a daughter, Dizzy.
Dizzy’s father is not given, but here is what I think. So we start with what we know: He must be a villain. And he must be a redhead, because Drizella’s hair is dark. This has a lot of candidates: Prince Hans, Alameda Slim, Syndrome, the Stabbington brothers or Prince John. But there is one more thing. Lady Tremaine. She has already lost one daughter to a baker, and she would want the other to marry someone wealthy or a member of royalty. This leaves two people: Prince John or Hans. Now, Lady Tremaine would probably not want her daughter in a relationship with someone as stupid and cowardly as Prince John, and also, he’s a lion! So we can safely assume that Hans is Dizzy’s father.
Now we need to take another look at Cinderella, or rather, her fairy godmother. I will count that as a family connection, so let’s see. In Descendants, the Fairy Godmother has a daughter, Jane. But she is one of the few AKs without two parents mentioned. For AKs, it is common for them to have two parents in the same universe, and with the previously mentioned name convention, with having alitterated names. So, if we take that into account, only two people could be her father. First, Jaq the mouse. Really? Not happening. He’s a mouse! And he’s in a relationship with Mary the mouse. Only one candidate remains. The Grand Duke, advisor to the king. His name is unknown, so it could be John or James or something, and ‘Duke’ and ‘Jane’ sound similar anyway. The colour scheme between Jane and the Duke is similar. Their hair is similar. So the Grand Duke is Jane’s father.

https://preview.redd.it/mo1qu9xypgn51.jpg?width=565&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ba807e5cd92213d2244a6e21e32db904780c5ad7
Now, it isn’t official, but I believe that Jane and her boyfriend Carlos De Vil will marry, so this means Jane has Cruella De Vil for an in-law. But Carlos’s dad is nowhere to be found. This is a common theory, but here it is: King Candy is Carlos’s dad. He definitely counts as a villain. Cruella De Vil in Descendants is black, and has nothing to do with technology, which Carlos is quite talented with. King Candy gives him his skin color, his freckles and his aptitude for technology, as well as explaining that candy scene in Descendants. But we’re not quite done, because Cruella has a brother, Cecil B De Vil. He ended up on the Isle of the Lost, and had a son, Diego. So Carlos has an uncle and a cousin. That is all for Hades’s Branch.

https://preview.redd.it/fy8o0py0qgn51.jpg?width=977&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b951d98098e65bd1d64535ecf91ca2e14559eb28
So, the loop. This part of the family tree connects Hades’s Branch with Poseidon’s Branch, through a pair of brothers. You will never guess who they are. Prince Eric’s father, and the King from Cinderella, father of Prince Henry. They are the decsendants of Prince Florian and Snow White.
You can see a lot of similarities between the brothers’s sons, Prince Henry and Prince Eric, and Snow White and Prince Florian.

https://preview.redd.it/a6mnrbm3qgn51.jpg?width=570&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ed5dd09677292cc955308bb268ef31bff93f81f4
Prince Henry looks like a perfect blend of them, doesn’t he? And Eric is pretty close too, if not quite as perfect.

https://preview.redd.it/3zos6im5qgn51.jpg?width=638&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9bbb69344c2279c3433c3afd47779e7ade111188
Furthermore, look at Snow White and Eric’s castles.

https://preview.redd.it/inr65el9qgn51.jpg?width=748&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=006b8cb56f2deb768406653b52a1ba06c2f380d1
Eric’s is obviously a modernised version of the Snow White’s castle, modeled on it but updated.
So let’s have a look at Snow White’s family. She is the daughter of an unnamed king and queen. When the queen died, the king married Queen Grimhilde, better known as the Evil Queen. She was exiled to the Isle of the Lost with the rest of the villains, where she had a daughter, Evie.
Evie is dating Doug, son of Dopey. He has six uncles: Sneezy, Sleepy, Grumpy, Doc, Bashful, and Happy. Yep, the dwarfs are all brothers. Sleepy has a son named Sleepy Jr., Bashful has a son named Bashful Jr., and Grumpy has a son called Gordon.
But who is Evie’s father? Gaston. Gaston always wanted to marry the most beautiful girl in town, and the fairest of the isle was definitely the Evil Queen. They would have been attracted to each other because they were both beautiful, but their egos and love of themselves would have made it hard to keep up a lasting relationship. Gaston then decided to get together with someone who worshiped him enough to come to the Isle with him, and would just inflate his ego. Namely, a Bimbette.

https://preview.redd.it/1hym71teqgn51.png?width=1085&format=png&auto=webp&s=649ec57d2497ed5edaa9972c54802933c1eb5b98
They worshiped Gaston, and one of them surely would want to go with Gaston to the Isle of the Lost. And I read a good theory about which one of these three ladies came over with Gaston. So, Gaston has three sons with an unknown woman, Gaston jr., Gaston the 3rd and Gil. Gil is the only one to appear in the movies.

https://preview.redd.it/38a72adhqgn51.jpg?width=2251&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5a418b2e76ea814e236bc33c1107dad4f8254d9d
Gil wears the typical colours of Gaston, red and gold, but you can see on his sleeves there is a lighter yellow. His mother could be the cause of this. If this is true, then his and his brothers’s mother is Laurette, the Bimbette in the yellow dress. Her sisters Paulette and Claudette are Gaston, Gaston and Gil’s aunts. Furthermore, in a comic Laurette is shown to be the smartest of the three, pretending to be Belle so she could marry Gaston. Maybe she found a way onto the Isle.
But there is another clue for one of Snow White’s ancestors. What we have is a painting hanging in the dining room in Eric’s palace.

https://preview.redd.it/58iq9z4kqgn51.jpg?width=533&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=39ac6103b5602f9f40d93a27915fdff6ef4f1758
Now, who does this remind you of? Yes, that is a portrait of Prince Phillip and Princess Aurora. And they are Eric’s, and Snow White’s ancestors. You don’t just hang a royal portrait of some random people in your castle, and though over 500 years separates their stories, it is clear that Eric is descended from Phillip and Aurora. But the royal couple also have another child, one who is not a direct ancestor of Eric or Snow White. Audrey, Queen of Mean.

I do not think that she is a direct ancestor of Snow White, because although Snow shares some traits with Phillip and Aurora, Audrey and her share next to none. Most likely Audrey has a sibling who went on to continue ruling and is Snow White’s direct ancestor. But this is not the end. Aurora has two parents, King Stefan and Queen Leah. In the movie Maleficent, Queen Leah has a father, King Henry. And Phillip is the son of King Hubert. So Aurora’s family goes back a few generations more.

https://preview.redd.it/eja9roaoqgn51.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=dabc0d93f628cd32fa7867a9e4999c867e55a2ea
Below is an approximate timeline of events for this family to make it easier. A note that I have not included Descendants dates because it is so hard place on the timeline.

2020.09.16 01:00 ShiranaiJittai Question about PS PLUS cloud saves

I feel like I already know the answer to this so the question is really more about me asking someone hoping my answer is wrong and or can magically change. Perhaps an update has changed and allowed the process in some way.
My Playstation 4 was fried by Zeus a few months ago. I was fortunate enough to borrow a friends PS4 so that I could play TLOU2 and Ghost of Tsushima. I had hoped to finish Final Fantasy VII remake that I was in the middle of but when I went to look through my cloud saves it was nowhere to be found for some reason >< I know that it is gone forever there is nothing I can do about that. However I am looking at picking up Persona 5 Royal when I get the PS5 and I have suddenly come to the realization that my Persona 5 saves may or may not be on there. I know that the save files for the two games are not compatible with eachother as so much more was added to Royal but I sunk hundreds of hours into Persona 5 and just really hoping that it is still in my cloud saves. I lost Dragon Quest XI save that was about 90% complete too.
My question is if I can access my Cloud saves list and or back it up to a USB stick or something individually saves or otherwise WITHOUT the playstation itself. I just want to look at the list of games and back them up combing through the list to see what other saves have been lost to the aether forever. I resubscribed for a year when I bought Ghost of Tsushima so I am not worried about being able to restore the saves when I get a PS5 my concern is being able to access the saves and back them up without the playstation itself. I just want to put copies on my laptop and usb stick and external hdd (not paranoid about losing more saves at all)
I know this may seem like a silly thing to do as the saves ARE on the cloud for whatever it is that I can play but I need to look through and mentally prepare myself to get a full inventory of which saves are gone forever and which I can restore. I also know some save files are copy protected and cloud save or not I will not be able to transfer them. (more of an issue with some older games but those are lost forever TT) I just want to get an idea of what has been lost and what can be restored maybe I can sell off or give away games that I had completed or almost completed and have no save file for anymore but I have to see that list to figure out what that would be.
Sidenote if the conference tomorrow does not give me a confirmed price and release date for the PS5 I am going to lose my mind.
