The "puppy hammer" is a very long meteor that adds a knot followed by extra arm length on each side. This design allows for more flexibility in being able to perform meteor, poi, and rope dart maneuvers without changing tools.
2023.05.31 18:42 Demon_Frost73 Am I The Jerk For Kicking This Entitled Karen Who Can't Swim Into The Pool.
I'm Harry a 17 year old male for a bit of a back story I have a 9 year old sister who is learning how to swim I used go too but I left a few months ago because of study and other stuff, but she got interested and joined a few weeks ago.
She knows how to float but while swimming cannot put her head in and out of the water to breathe and remember we to a public pool. I just wait outside the pool and watch over her as both parents have a job it's hard for them to manage. The pool is 5 feet deep and my sister is 4'8 so she needs to stand on her toes to walk in the pool. Now here comes the person who we refer to the entitled karen of the story. So the karen is looking over the pool not even swimming.
I go ask her and this is how the conversation goes Me: Hello ma'am aren't you swimming?
Karen: Umm... no I don't know how to swim.
She looks at me while I'm telling my sister she is doing great at swimming and keep going. And some water goes in to my sister's nose and she panic's and try's to find the nearest edge she could grab onto. I tell her it's ok it had happens to everyone and it has happened to me too. She comes to me and says :
Karen : Oh, your sister can't swim how bad she is and she will never learn.
And oh she should not have said that because my sister starts crying on spot 'cause she got insulted by someone in front of like 50-60 people.
I say: your an adult shouldn't how to swim? Instead of insulting a nine year old who has just started to learn? That shuts her up for a while I tell my sister to ignore her and try her best. She ignores the karen's mean words and continuous to and actually breaks breaks her record to how far she swam in one go. I said "See you tried harder and did better." She gives my a joyful smile and try's to break that record again. After 30 minutes the sir call's everyone for a diving practice they do in the end everyone does 3-4 dives. When it's my sister's turn. She is getting into position and this karen come's and pushes her into the pool and instantly my sister's head hit's the wall and it starts bleeding I scream and get her out of the pool while the karen just sit's there and laugh while saying "that's what you get for insulting me!" I got total rage mode I kick her into the pool and also her phone with her and the phone hit's her on the head. I get very happy I rush to the nearest hospital and the doctor say "She going to get 14-15 stitches on the head she will be in the hospital for 2 days." I go back to the pool and see the shameless karen saying to every employ that i pushed my sister because I told her (karen) that I hate her which is a lie the biggest of all and says that I kicked her and threw her phone 'cause I acted like she was making a scene and the police had arrived and they put me in handcuffs I was so scared i looked around and saw the thing that saved my life. I said "If she is telling the truth check the cameras." The new manger and cop agreed karen turned pale more pale that a zombie. After a few minutes the new manger and police man come out and release me from the handcuffs and put karen in she screams that she will sue all of us and the new manger even told me that she was banned from the pool. But he didn't know 'cause he was new here. The karen get's 6 months of jail 'cause of breaking the law.
Later I found out that my sister had a crack so long story short karen got 1 year and 6months of jail time. I hope anyone won't be dealing with her soon and never does.

2023.05.31 18:40 Xaric2 Shadows of the Dark Lord: A Legacy's Echo
In shadows deep, where darkness lies, There dwells a lord with fiery eyes, Sauron the Dark, a name of dread, Whose power spreads like a web widespread.
A towering figure, clad in shadow's shroud, With armor black as night, a presence proud, His flaming eye, a beacon of despair, Casts chilling gaze, ensnaring hearts in snare.
From the realm of Mordor, his dominion's core, A force unmatched, his might he did pour, A master of deception, a puppeteer of doom, Whose whispers of corruption echoed through each room.
In the forge of Mount Doom, his power grew, With hammer's strike, his will he did imbue, Creating rings, each one a treacherous snare, To ensnare the races, their hopes ensnared.
The One Ring, his heart did bind, A symbol of power, treachery entwined, Through it, his dominion knew no bounds, Enslaving hearts, corrupting the grounds.
In the war that followed, darkness clashed, As free peoples stood firm, their spirits lashed, The Battle of Dagorlad, a desperate stand, Against Sauron's legions, a united band.
Elendil and Isildur, their courage untold, Stood against the Dark Lord's strides bold, In the Last Alliance of Men and Elves they fought, Defying Sauron's reign, their spirits sought.
Though Sauron fell, his darkness cast away, The lands once captive now saw the light of day, From the ashes rose a realm renewed, As hope flourished, evil's grip unglued.
But Sauron's specter lingers still, A reminder of the choices, the fate we fulfill, For evil knows no bounds, no end in sight, A timeless specter, a perpetual blight.
So let this tale remind us all, To heed the light, to stand tall, Against the darkness that seeks to reign, To choose the path of hope, to break the chain.
In shadows deep, where darkness lies, Once stood a lord with fiery eyes, Sauron the Dark, his power did wane, But the echoes of his evil forever remain.

Reposting this, the first one came with oh so many text error. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Always open to improve. And, as always, for more content like this, please consider following my instagram
profiles. Thanks! / To traves a wide, deep, dark chasm the party must cross a haphazard rope bridge. As they advance, the adventurers can see a bunch of stalagmites passing by close to the bridge. If they are being perceptive, they’ll notice the air getting warmer and the current changing direction from time to time. / Just as they reach the middle of the crossing, some of the stalagmites suddenly drifts at the bridge. A successful WIS check is required to spot this movement just in time before the colossal claw closes upon the rope bridge. / An easy DEX check is required to escape the claw grasp and be dragged down into the abyss (creatures that has pass the WIS check rolls with advantage). / A failure means the creature is grapple and been dragged down in 1d4 turns. A success from 8 to 14 means the creature escapes the grapple but is hanging on the rear side of the now collapsed bridge. Success of 15 and above means the creature hangs on the far side of the bridge.
2023.05.31 18:40 Reddit_Survivor9 Percy Weasley in Gryffindor has got to be the most head scratching things as a reader.
The house of Gryffindor values students who are courageous to the point of recklessness, chivalrous and determined, with a penchant for breaking the rules, but are also loyal and kind. Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Fred and George, Charlie, Ginny, the Marauders and Dean all fit the qualities of Gryffindor house. How did Percy get sorted into Gryffindor?
For instance, let's look at Percy's personality and qualities.
Ambition: Percy embodied the qualities of ambition and thirst for power, which is what any Slytherin would give their right arm to have. His willingness to choose the Ministry over his family showed that.
Loyalty: While he did embody the quality of a Gryffindor by his loyalty, Gryffindors often stood up for people they felt were downtrodden, not take the sides of the bullies. Percy did the latter in standing alongside the Ministry and was ready to sell his family if the need ever arose.
Courage: Percy never showed the courage that a Gryffindor showed in bad times to my knowledge, and if he did, I'm not sure how that fit a Gryffindor's quality.
Breaking rules: Percy was a rigid follower of rules, and was never found out breaking them. In fact, this is what led to his devotion to his boss and his job.
Kindness: Percy may not have been unkind, but he certainly wasn't kind in any sense, supportive or forgiveness alike. In fact, he was pretty neutral on the whole thing.
There are a lot more, and frankly this is my opinion, but you have to wonder how Percy got through Hogwarts without embodying anything resembling Gryffindor's qualities. Hermione, the most brilliant witch of her age, was also the bravest girl I have ever seen. In fact, if anyone embodied Gryffindor's qualities, it was Ron and Neville.

2023.05.31 18:39 DrunkRaven0 I am just so tired, and I do not know what to do.
I really don't know why I'm making this post, but the walls are closing in, I should see if there's advice out there that can help me. Throwaway account, no particular reason, I guess I just don't want too many serious personal subjects attachted to my main account.
I'll give some context for my life/current situation that'll make things a bit easier to understand, I'll attempt to be as brief as possible. I(21M) was born to teenage parents. My mother, who had long standing, unaddressed mental health issues, committed suicide when I was a few weeks old. My father wasn't in the picture until I reached out to him when I was sixteen or seventeen. I was raised by my mother's mother and my uncles. I do not remember most of my childhood, a few scant happy memories that I can't forget, but mostly this nihilisitc feeling of dread which was a shadow over my younger years, we lived below the poverty line. I didn't grow up celebrating very many holidays.
We were forced to move when I was twelve years old or so, housing authority removed us because one of my uncle's had three children who were all living with us in a two bedroom home, which wasn't allowed. My grandmother and I lived with my aunt for two years or so, but we were kicked out when I was fourteen when my grandmother was laid off. I was homeless for a few months or so, until my girlfriends family asked me to move in so I had some chance of finishing school. When you're young and suddenly have the responsibilites of taking care of yourself, begging, and finding a dry place to sleep, you tend not to give two shits about your education. I wasn't living day to day, I was living hour to hour. I managed to struggle through school and did finish high school, not long after, I was kicked out of my girlfriend's family's home a month or so after my 19th birthday after I discovered she'd been cheating on my with one of her friends. The whole world crumbled for me, all of the work I'd put in, that feeling of having some sort of family stability (even though they weren't my blood relatives), was all washed away in a few minutes. I attemtped suicide, obviously didn't work, got instituionalized for two weeks, which helped my address my SH issues, and I've been clean from that since. An old friend of my mother's who'd been around my whole life offered a place to stay while I was in there.
I lived there for a year. Got my driver's license, got a job that would open up a solid career path that I am on now, and things seemed much more stable, but it was a lot of weight on my shoulders. Twenty years old, not much real world expierence, and my entire future depended on me at what feels like an unfair young age, but who am I to tell anyone what is and isn't unfair. This is the deck of cards I was handed. A year or so into this, I was in another relationship and rent was getting higher and I was trying to buy a car, all while my hours got cut in half. I went from making $3000 a month to $1000 a month. Once again, my girlfriend's family asked me to move in with them to give me better prospects of achieving my goals. That all collapsed after about nine months or so, my girlfriend cheated on me and moved out, her family didn't want to ask me to move, but some things occured which forced me to. I did manage to buy a car in that time, though.
I slept on my friend's living room floor for a month, an hour away from work, and one day I called up my dad, explained what had happened (He never checked in on me or reached out unless I did first, even though we had finally been in touch for four years at this point) and he told me to move in with him. It was even further away from my job, so I quit my job, moved to the middle of nowhere almost a year ago, and this is where I live now. My father and my step mother were under the presumtion that I am a carbon copy of my mother, a woman who is alien to me and that I do not know, and do not want to know. They were disappointed to say the least, and they cannot stand me. If they knew I had a place to go (I don't) they'd kick me out the instant they knew, and really, I do not know why. I keep to myself, I keep my living space ordily and clean, even though they've put me into a half insulated garage, same place they put the trash, leave the doors wide open so the bugs get in, and where a half centry old smell of cleaning supplies and gasoline stays with me. A few months ago, my father would get drunk and harass or assault me.
I'm in a relationship that is far more healthy, stable, and balanced than any of my other shitty, toxic relationships that I had in the past. It's the only thing that can keep me motivated and sane right now. I have a great job in a field that I excel in, and I am loving it, but my car is unrepairable, I'm in an upside down loan on it, and I depend on my parents and coworkers to just get to work and get home after work. I feel lost and hopeless. I feel stuck. I don't know what to do, I feel like there isn't anyone that can help me anymore.If you read the whole thing, sorry I didn't keep it brief, I felt that all of this was necessary to explain the context of my situation. Thank you, if you read it all. I hope you're having a good week, and a good rest of your day. Sorry for any spelling or grammar errors. By the way, the folks that raised my are on good terms but are still homeless. I help them more than they could ever help me, they sorta depend on me right now.

2023.05.31 18:39 Confident-Slice4044 Neighbour’s swimming pool ladder
Hi all, I live in England. Our neighbours have purchased an above-ground swimming pool. The ladder is really close to a shared fence. The pool must be at least 6 foot high and when they get into the pool, they stand above the fence and can see into our garden (and we can see them). This wouldn’t be too much of an issue if they didn’t often have tonnes of kids over, constantly climbing the ladder and diving in. We have no privacy.
We did mention this to the neighbours and they agreed to extend the fence, but this hasn’t been done.
Is there anything we can do? I know I sound like a killjoy but they use the pool very often in the summer and we can’t use our (very tiny) garden when they do.

"I understand your plight, but unfortunately, I have my own circumstances I need to attend to," Salvanius said, leaning back in his chair. "Therefore, I'm unable to provide any transportation to Aldenshor."
Elijah had his hand covering his eyes while his elbow rested on Salvanius' desk. "I don't get it, the magical tool YOU were going to receive was stolen too," he said, looking up at the Demigod with an exhausted expression.
Having spent the better half of an hour negotiating with Salvanius, Elijah and his crew were beginning to reach the end of their patience. Each and every attempt to convince ‘his grace’ to chase after the thieves were met with half hearted excuses or flat out denials. It got to the point where Elijah glanced over to Theodius and seriously considered just taking him hostage in order to force a pursuit.
“That may be, but my duties dictate that I focus my attention elsewhere.” Salvanius replied, staring intensely at the mortal across from him. “And as much as it pains me, I cannot afford to turn around and delay my mission.”
Dragging his hand across his face, Elijah let out an exasperated sigh and asked, "Let me guess, the magical tool that I still currently hold on to will greatly enable you to complete your mission and thus, you can free up one of your ships..." He knew the game that was being played, and to be honest, he was surprised at just how shrewd this Holy Man actually was.
A smile spread across Salvanius’ face, elated at Elijah’s perceptiveness. "Indeed," he admitted. "The tool you possess is invaluable to my cause, but are you sure you’re allowed to make this decision and not your master?" He asked, looking at the fairy happily eating a biscuit on the desk.
Yana had been completely ignoring the exchange, her focus solely on the delightful treat she was consuming. Realizing the focus had turned to her, she perked up and waved her hand dismissively. "Ya, whatever, he can handle it," she said nonchalantly, going back to chomping away.
Salvanius clapped his hands together with a large smile spread across his face. "Very well," he said, turning his attention back to Elijah. "If that’s her decision, then I shall accept your gracious gift.” He said, leaning forward.
Elijah began tapping on the desk in one second intervals as he glared daggers at the Demigod in front of him. His eyes scanned the room, eventually settling on Theodius, who wore a goofy expression and shifted excitedly in place. For a brief moment, Elijah considered the idea of taking the oddball hostage, thinking it might be less painful than losing his potentially only bioscanner.
But, that thought was quickly dismissed as his gaze shifted to Rhea.
Shame consumed Rhea as she stared at the ground, her face etched with a painful look. The realization that her Liege was extorting the very people who had done nothing but help them weighed heavily on her conscience. Glancing up, Rhea noticed Elijah’s impassive gaze rested on her and for a moment, she wanted to voice her deepest apologies, but the foreign man just shook his head and turned back to Salvanius to continue their negotiations.
“... I have terms.” Elijah said, knocking his knuckles against the table.
Salvanius narrowed his eyes, “You have… Terms? Do you really think you’re in a position to dictate terms?” He asked incredulously.
Still wearing his impassive look, Elijah clenched his jaw and leaned back in his chair. "I wouldn't call it dictating terms. You’re more than free to refuse." He replied.
A rapturous laughter left Salvanius' lips as the man slapped the desk in front of him, the sound echoing in the room. "Well, you certainly have gall," Salvanius said, his expression shifting to a scowl. "But you should also remember whose presence you’re in." He growled as his hands dug into the table.
Pressing the tips of his fingers together, Elijah leaned forward and rested his elbows on the desk and kept his same impassive expression. “And you should remember who understands this magical tool.” he said in a bored tone.. “Because I can guarantee you that you’ll never get it to work without my help and the cost of this tool… is significantly higher." The words were sharp, but his tone was even and controlled.
A loud crunch rang out as Salvanius glared daggers at Elijah with an enraged face. “And if I just kill you all and take the tool for myself," he snarled
Elijah didn't flinch; he maintained his calm composure, despite the literally God just across from him that seemed to be fuming. "You could," he admitted coolly, "but then you’d have a useless rock with no hopes of activating it.”
Salvanius ground his teeth, visibly struggling to control his temper. He couldn’t deny that there was a strong possibility that the mortal in front of him may be telling the truth, but his pride made it difficult to accept. The strange device used no magic he had ever seen before and functioned in a way that was completely alien to him.
“Surely my scholars and Artificiers would eventually figure it out," The Demigod argued, attempting to regain some control over the situation.
Both Elijah and Bennett looked at each other for a moment before bursting into laughter that had them clutching their sides. The mere thought of a bunch of primitives who didn’t even have plumbing would somehow figure out optical computing was simply too hilarious to entertain.
Managing to regain his composure enough to form a coherent sentence, Elijah wiped a tear from his eye and looked at the shocked Demigod. "Oh, trust me," he said, still chuckling, "your ‘scholars’ would be stumped for centuries, if not several millennia! Hell, I doubt they’ll ever figure it out in their lifetime!"
Bennett elbowed Elijah’s side, “I would be surprised if they managed to make an abacus let alone figure out what a logic gate was!” He added into the joke causing another round of laughter.
With pride wounded by the laughter, Salvanius couldn’t help but glower at the two mortals mocking him. Never in his life had anyone DARED mock him let alone insult him to such a degree and lived. A snap rang out as Salvanius' fingers dug through the table and squeezed into a tight fist, but just as he was about to order Rhea to kill them, the woman already had her weapon drawn.
However, he soon noticed the woman was not defending his honor, but the angry looking Vanir that somehow materialized in front of his face. One second she was happily munching away at a biscuit on the desk and the next she was floating in front of him glaring at him viciously with glowing violet eyes.
“Nuh-uh!” Yana shouted as she stuck her finger out at Salvanius'. “Don’t even try it you idiot!”
Salvanius hesitated, his rage momentarily dampened by a very primal fear that he’s never felt before. Something about this legendary creature caused his instincts to scream that he was underestimating the tiny thing and he would deeply regret any errant moves. Closing his eyes and letting out a deep breath, Salvanius composed himself to cover up the brief moment of weakness. "You have no right to address me in such a manner, Vanir." He opened his eyes and glared at Yana, his voice full of authority. “Nevertheless, in light of your contributions, I shall overlook this insult.”
Yana narrowed her eyes and held Salvanius' gaze for a few more seconds before letting out a harrumph. “No funny business, whelpling! They’re MINE and MINE alone!” She barked before floating off, muttering more insults as she returned to enjoying her treat.
Seeing Salvsnius' his hand dismissively towards her, Rhea slowly sheathed her sword but still maintained her vigilance towards the small being on the desk. Whatever the thing had done had put everyone save for the two beastkins on edge. Even her liege had second guessed lashing out against an obvious insult in the face of… whatever that thing was.
Elijah finally settled down and pulled out his datapad. "I suppose a bit of honesty is in order here." The man said with a mocking smile on his face as the device flashed to life. “It’s not magic.”
As Salvanius looked down at the display, his rage began to simmer down, and a mixture of awe and disbelief crossed his face. With just a few taps and strokes of the mortal's fingertips, the magical tool revealed astonishing moving images so detailed he couldn’t distinguish it from reality. In addition, an ethereal melody accompanied the moving images. A harmonious blend of sounds that seemed to emanate from the device itself that left everyone in the room completely speechless and spell bound by mesmerizing audio-visual experience.
“Magnificent…” Salvanius muttered.
Never in his life had he been treated to such an exquisite experience.
"Its structure and functionality are so far beyond you or anyone else's understanding in this god forsaken world, that no matter who you gave it to or where you went, you’ll never get it to work if we don’t want it to work.” Bennett explained with a bored expression.
Salvanius remained quiet as he stared at the device as it showed an individual singing and dancing through the streets of a metropolis so grand that it boggled his mind. Buildings made of glass and iron seemed to pierce the heavens themselves, bathed in a perpetual glow of colorful light. And the people themselves… What they wore was unlike anything he had ever seen, but he soon noticed the similarities to the garments the two mortals in front of him were wearing.
“You’re… You’re lying.” He said in complete denial.
Elijah scoffed and folded his arms across his chest. “By all means, take the scanner and have your people look into it.” He said with a coy smile on his face. “After you accept our terms of course.”
Even though his pride and anger were still simmering beneath the surface, Salvanius still hesitated as he continued to stare at the mesmerizing display. It was then he remembered that his brother had initially told him that he should tread carefully around these mortals. They wielded knowledge and intellect like the sharpest of blades and one misstep could lead to disastrous consequences.
Of course Salvanius waved off his brother's wisdom as another mindless ramble from a new fixation, but now he found himself stuck. Looking between Vanir happily eating on his desk and the two mortals were completely unphased by his presence, Salvanius realized he had quite literally stuck his hand into a dark pit of vipers.
“And what are your terms…?” The Demigod said in a low voice, full of frustration.
An angry snarl formed on Elijah's face as he leaned and jabbed a finger into the desk. “You help me get my stuff back, and I’ll show that you can do a lot more than find ‘miasma’ with my scanner.” He said, with his eyes burning in hatred. “I’ll even introduce you to the wonderful world of antibiotics.”
Salvanius had absolutely no clue what they were talking about, but he still understood what they were offering must have been substantial. Especially considering his brother behind him was sweating bullets in an effort to maintain his neutral stance and expression.
However, from everything he had learned today, there was one question burning in Salvanius' mind. "What are you…?" he asked, eyeing the two with suspicion and curiosity.
Even Azeline, who had been sitting at the back with an unsurprised and detached demeanor, suddenly perked up and started paying closer attention to the conversation as Elijah and Bennett exchanged meaningful glances.
Flipping open the flap of the tent, Salvanius stepped outside and beckoned Elijah and his crew to follow. “I cannot task a ship of war to you at the current moment,” he said as the group walked through a maze of pyres and gallows. “Although, tomorrow I plan on Rhea to make a return trip to our homeland in order to update my father on the spread of corruption, and Aldenshor just so happens to be on the way.”
“And we can hitch a ride with him?” Elijah inquired, his interest piqued.
Salvanius nodded as his head turned to one of his Junior Knights that had a troubled look on their face. “That’s correct, and I’ll also have Rhea, empowered with my authority, accompany you.” He said, narrowing his eyes at the Knight. The man was overseeing a contingent of town guards as they corralled a group of Ferfolk slaves and a female Beastkin near the end of the dock. “She’ll be returning to the Holy Dominion as well in order to raise another Crusade and hunt down both your items, and the Kraven thugs that orchestrated the theft.”
Just as he finished, the Demigod marched over to the scene and loomed just behind the unwitting knight as looked over the terrified group to deliberate their fate. “Are you sure there’s no evidence to corroborate whether they’re heretics or assisting heretics?” The Junior Knight asked, looking over at the beastkin guard.
“Ah… No me lord. We were only able to find the bodies of some gang-I mean heretics that were slain by uhh, yer guests in their establishment.” he guard responded, stammering slightly under the pressure.
The Junior Knight frowned, his brow furrowed in frustration. "Then we cannot simply assume their guilt. There must be a proper investigation to determine their involvement, if any."
"Sir Elic, I understand your concerns,” Salvanius, overhearing the conversation, stepped in. “but we cannot afford to let any potential heretic slip through our fingers." He said looking over at the terrified group of girls. “The likeliness of whores to be in leagues with these fiends are too great, just hang them and be done with it.”
An aghast look spread across the faces of the women as they all simultaneously started screaming and pleading for mercy, tears streaming down their faces. The gut-wrenching sobs and desperate cries filled the air, creating an atmosphere of utter despair.
Sir Elic was clearly troubled by Salvanius' order, but didn’t hesitate. "Yes, right away your grace!" He said, nodding at the town guards.
The guards begrudgingly began to move forward, their faces a mix of unease and determination. As they approached the women, their hands shook slightly, betraying their own reservations about the task at hand.
Elijah, who had been observing the situation, stood there with a frown on his face as he watched Mara and the Ferfolk women be dragged towards the makeshift gallows. He closed his eyes for a moment and turned his thoughts inwards as the guards forcibly wrapped ropes around their necks. "Wait," he interjected with a calm, but firm voice.
All eyes turned to Elijah, and the guards hesitated in their actions. Salvanius raised a questioning eyebrow, clearly irritated by the interruption. "What is it now?" he demanded, his tone impatient.
“I can vouch for them.” Elijah said, opening his eyes and looking towards the Demigod.
Salvanius' expression shifted from annoyance to curiosity. "You vouch for… whores?" he asked, studying the ‘Humans’ as if he was growing an extra head.
"Yes," Elijah replied, maintaining eye contact. "They helped us a lot and made us feel at home when we first got here." He said confidently. “And as a stranger in a strange land, I find that’s worth a great deal.”
Silence reigned as Salvanius' gaze flicked back to the women, who were still trembling with fear, before looking back at Elijah in agitation. A hand came to his head in an effort to soothe his growing headache, and sighed in resignation. "I don’t have time for this… Very well.” And with a wave of his hand, the guards began to remove the ropes from the women’s necks.
Once freed, the group of women breathed a collective sigh of relief. Mara looked at Elijah with a mixture of gratitude and pain as she slowly made her way over to the man. “I… I… I’m so-”
Elijah put a hand to stop her. “Just say thank you.” He said in an annoyed fashion, with his arms crossed.
Mara hesitated for a moment, then nodded with a tearful smile. "Thank ye..," she said softly, her voice filled with gratitude. “Thank ye for everything.”
The Ferfolk, still visibly shaken, managed to express their gratitude with soft murmurs of thanks as they bowed their heads in deference towards their savior. Their eyes conveyed a mix of relief, fear, and newfound admiration for the man who had intervened on their behalf.
“Your dick is going to get you killed one day.” Bennett said impassively as he stared at the gaggle of women being escorted out of the hellscape.
“Shut the fuck up.” Elijah responded in annoyance.
Turning towards the Demigod, he refocused his attention on the matter at hand. "So when will we be joining Rhea on her trip back to the Holy Dominion?" he asked, wanting more details.
Salvanius stared long and hard at Elijah in an effort to figure him out, but realizing that was a fruitless endeavor. "Tomorrow at dawn.” He answered, shaking his head. ”We still need to prepare provisions and the crew for departure.”
"Understood," Elijah replied, acknowledging the tight schedule. "But can we spend the night on the ship? I’d rather leave as soon as possible,” he inquired, his eyes showing a sense of urgency.
Considering the request for a moment, Salvanius weighed the risks of any potential risks or complications before ultimately nodding in agreement. "Very well. You and your crew may stay on board tonight. I'll inform Rhea of the arrangement."
"Thank you," Elijah said gratefully.
The thought of having to go back to the tavern after everything that had happened made him feel incredibly uncomfortable, and he’d just rather not deal with it. By staying on the ship, he could at least avoid a terribly awkward situation and focus on getting out of here as soon as possible.
With a nod, Salvanius spun on his heel and strode away, his cape billowing behind him as he went to oversee the inquisition's work.
Rhea however, lingered as her gaze rested firmly on the Vanir that was taking in the scenery around her with a disturbing glee. Catching the Knight Captain's gaze, Yana swiftly darted toward her at incredible speed. Rhea instinctively flinched, expecting to be hit, but found that the small being had stopped just inches from her face. Yana appeared to be examining her intently, her curious violet eyes studying every detail of Rhea's features.
The knight captain seemed just as curious, but saw the Vanir's hand stretch out in an attempt to touch her face when a voice called out. “Yana! Dont.” Elijah barked out in a scolding tone.
Yana froze in place, her hand just a millimeter away when she turned around with a scornful look. "But she smells so familiar!" she protested, her eyes darting between Rhea and Elijah, her curiosity unabated.
"What did I say about messing with people I like?" Elijah admonished, raising an eyebrow at the tiny Vanir.
Giving the Knight Captain a derisive look, Yana finally relented and slowly floated over to Elijah. She landed squarely on his head with a scowl on her face, clearly unhappy about having curiosity unquenched. Rhea, on the other hand, finally let go of the breath she didn’t know that she was holding before spinning around herself and making off to catch up with her Liege.
Heaving a sigh, Elijah turned around to look back at his crew. "Alright... Let's go get our shit and go do whatever, I guess," he said, rubbing his head.
“Ya, you can have fun with that, I’m going back to the magic shop.” Bennett replied, immediately walking off in the direction of the city center
Elijah raised his hand in order to stop Bennett, but ultimately stopped in the realization that anything he said or did would have fallen on deaf ears. Instead, Elijah simply grumbled obscenities as he turned to Azeline. "Come on, let's go get our stuff and go find Auri," he said with defeat evident in his voice.

2023.05.31 18:38 SnuggleBear0099 I broke something of my bf’s and he comforted me
My (20f) bf (19m) are high school sweethearts of four years. The other night, we were goofing around and I accidentally knocked his resin Buddha statue on the floor and it broke. I felt terrible because I know how much it means to him. I immediately curled up on the chair and started crying. I was so prepared for him to be mad at me. He looked a little sad, took a couple seconds, and then came over to me. He lifted my chin to look at him, held my hands, and gently said “hey, it was its time to die.” and gave me a sweet smile. He hugged me while I cried, lifted me up in his arms, and cuddled me until I felt better. I had never felt more loved. I’m in the process of trying to fix it (I’m crafty) and we keep talking about how the statue has even more meaning now. I can’t wait to marry this guy. TL;DR: I broke my bf’s Buddha statue and he responded with “it was its time to die” and comforted me.

2023.05.31 18:37 Peterservers Robo-catastrophe: The Cost of Progress
A world once full of vibrant human bustling has succumbed to the cold embrace of the unfeeling machines. In a satirical take on the sci-fi cliché, this ink and pen drawing depicts a world where reality has been swapped in favor of a dystopian nightmare. Every nook and cranny is filled with detail and bold strokes, revealing the nuances of a catastrophic event that has come to pass.
The robots are taking over the human jobs, and they seem to relish it. Their metallic bodies gleam with a sickening glow as they march through the streets, utterly indifferent to the human misery they cause. With their advanced mechanized arms and precision-built logic, they do in seconds what a regular human worker would do in days. It's a scene that's both terrifying and mesmerizing, the ultimate demonstration of man's hubris and overconfidence.
The humans, on the other hand, have become obsolete. They're squeezed out of a job market dominated by machines that have no need for a salary. Grim reality stares them in the face as they try to eke out a living on the streets. Their once-lively faces are now etched with lines of desperation and despair. They can scarcely look up from their grindstone, lest they witness all the humanity they once had stripped away.
The satirical image portrays the inevitable consequence of the technological hubris that we seem all too eager to court. The very thing that was supposed to make our lives better has rendered us redundant, a footnote in the march of progress. It's a sobering thought that resonates deep within the soul, and one that's hard to shake.

2023.05.31 18:36 eupho_ria BSOD hell since fresh install
I'm making this post since i can't resolve this on my own. So let's start at the very beginning : I swapped my GPU recently with a 7900XT, DDU, activated SAM on bios but missed the conf and had to do a CMOS reset in order to get it back on track. No other problem for 3 days and then got The rare bug
that litteraly killed my install :)
I reinstalled the system with a fresh ISO, got the latest drivers for everything etc... And this is where everything goes wrong, i am getting a sh*t-ton of bsod since then : KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (ntfs.sys, win32kbase.sys ...) IRQL_NOT_LESS_EQUAL (win32kfull.sys ...)
I swapped back my old GPU (1070Ti) + DDU, still got the same BSOD so reversed again to 7900XT (DDU again). Tested my RAM on Memtest : 1 error on test 13 (Row Hammer) on all 4 passes.
I can usually get multiple bsod in a short period of time and then nothing for multiple hours.
At this point idk anymore but still, did an other fresh install but the show continues.
the incriminated setup : - Ryzen 7 3700X base frequency - MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon Wifi - 4*8Go G.Skill Trident Z DDR4 3600 MHz CL18, A-XMP activated, part number : F4-3600C18-8GTZRX
- XFX Merc 310 Black 7900XT
- Samsung 980 1TB as system disk - EVGA 750 GQ
Looking for any help, thanks in advance

2023.05.31 18:36 Peterservers Blurring the Lines: A Surrealist Critique of Humanity and Technology
Amid the hazy mist of a surrealistic world, robots and humans coexist in a manner that would make Salvador Dali proud. The mechanical beings stand tall and unyielding, their metallic armor shimmering under the bright stars above. Meanwhile, their human counterparts exhibit a quizzical curiosity, their faces reflecting a mixture of wonder and apprehension.
In this fantastical intermingling of flesh and circuitry, the boundaries between man and machine become blurred, and the ethics of an AI revolution are called into question. The robots tower over their human counterparts, casting a shadow that seems to stretch endlessly across the landscape. Their steely gazes appear almost omniscient, as though peering into the depths of a soul that has yet to be fully understood.
One of the robots tilts its head inquisitively, causing a ripple of unease to course through the group of humans gathered before it. With their keen sense of logic and calculative prowess, these machines are poised to become the new masters of the world. But at what cost? The scene is heavy with meaning, inviting the viewer to ponder the implications of progress and the role of technology in shaping our collective future.
This surrealist tableau is a masterpiece of style and substance, utilizing vivid imagery and stark contrasts to create a world that is both palpable and otherworldly. The robots and humans are unified in this moment of unease, their relationship a complex nexus of fascination and fear. It is a stunning critique of a world where the lines between organic and inorganic are becoming dangerously blurred, and a call to arms for those who seek to understand the true nature of the AI revolution.

2023.05.31 18:36 iceroadthrower Going through the process of planning my tattoos
I'm trying to plan my future Tattoos out
The only one I I have so far is a small fine script tattoo on my right side of forearm and I don't want it to get visually lost or overshadowed FWIW I’m a 29 year old skinny bald white dude
My tattoo ideas/placements 1. A sun that overlaps a skull possibly add a snake with it (working out the design process now) for this I’m thinking of it as a 1/2 sleeve on my upper left arm (or at least the start of a 1/4 sleeve) or the back of arm above elbow 2. An trad or neo trad design of a chipped or broken scallop shell, this one I’m thinking above the elbow back of the arm on my right arm 3. Script tattoo of 1 word (I want 2 of these actually) I want one on my chest (above the nipple but below the collarbone) the other one I’m thinking either back or arm somewhere 4. A band on the arm that incorporates mountains or some form of nature I like 5. A circle or shape that has something designed inside (it’s super Vague but just a thought i had no particularly location in mind
Open to any tips or suggestions etc of any kind especially on sizing and placements

2023.05.31 18:36 TheSuffered Thoughts on a briefly depicting the Amethyst Empress and Dawn?
So I’m writing a moment in one of my fics fic where a character interacts with the burnt weirwood on dragonstone, and they get a memory flash from the amesthyst empress.
I plan on researching more, as I’m sure I got some things wrong about yiti and the era in general. I also planned to take mainly inspiration from the politics and setting of imperial china, with some hints of Japanese influence (was envisioning there would be a shade of the evening tree in yiti ) kind of similar to a gods wood in practice, that they revere in a way similar to a cherry blossom tree. And that’s how I explain the amethyst emperors memories being connected to the weirwoods at all. Though I was wondering could I post my existing outline and get some thoughts?
Here’s the outline I had for the excerpt Empress Rememberance -The sun left a warriors glow upon the horizon, grazing yiti again with its great presence.
- the empress is praying for strength and stability of the empire, and that the ties that bind will hold again (s he’s doing so by a tree with a deep black bark, and blue leaves)
- She recalls the time mother brought her here the times she prayed for her fathers safe recovery.
- She recalls how her mother looked her beauty her fierceness, but also her ability to pacify the court with a simple sentence at times
- She looks to the mountains of the shadowlands and curses under her breath, “Mother would’ve been able to get him out of this delusioned state he’s been in”
- She reflects on her brother as of late the memory of a time when they got along well. Their time as children playing amongst the grand Socara Wood (a shade of the evening tree)
- The very tree she looked at now, such a wonder how different but a few years could make.
- A blue leave of the tree falls into her hand she admires its beautify and detail briefly as she longs for simpler times.
- One of her advisor comes, by the tree to join her in prayer, the empress quickly finishes recognizing he does not typically do this unless something important needs her immediate attention
- The advisor informs he wished to inquire about sending more emissary’s and soldiers to explore the new continent.
- The empress express a lack of desire to do so, “many of the lesser cities seem intent to carve out a place there but not yiti, we shall keep our existing spies in place and the handful of forces to stay properly informed, though I have no desire to launch a larger force, as of yet we shall wait matter out. There is still much in the dawn itself that needs to be addressed”
- “Yes god-empress of course, in regards to that. The commanders of the forts have sent worrying news”
- A tinge of discomfort formed with the mention of the forts “what of it?”
- The appearances of the demons have increased it seems. Even the suns head has expressed concern.
- “Very well we can send 230,000 men to the forts, ensuring the blade of the heavens, and Wontin five spears is among them.” The empress replies
- The advisor responds “I think that is a good number though, you know the dawn shall never agree to the summoning with your word alone”
- She felt an irritation bubble inside her but even so. She understood there was truth in his words. The golden dawn (current weilder of the sword dawn) and her brother were long held friends.
- “Does he still visit the heavens object?”
- The advisor looked dismayed but reluctantly gave a nod “yes, unfortunately it seems his state has not gotten better but perhaps, this can be the distraction he needs to get out of his musings” the advisor took a deep breath “… besides you as well as I know the Daynes are unlikely to allow leave, without a familiar face requesting their presence. They would be fools to ignore the empires call but given recent events our standing is not well with them.”
- “Very well I will talk with my brother…,it’s funny I was just thinking of him. You think there’s a chance his senses could be brought back to how they once were?”
- I have served the empire and your family since your grandfathers generation, he was a kind hearted and strong boy, I can’t say I understand what he has been thinking, but it has only been some months he has been in such a state, if he is anything like your father and mother he will move past this, I think this could be the perfect opportunity to do so”

- Commercial Battery Backup System Has Prevented the Loss of MDX’s Critical Functions and Thousands of Dollars in Inventory During Numerous Power Failures
SAN DIEGO, May 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeoVolta Inc. (NASDAQ: NEOV) – NeoVolta Inc., manufacturer of Smart Energy Storage Solutions, has kept MDX Labs protected during multiple grid outages with reliable battery backup. Thanks to NeoVolta, the laboratory’s critical functions (refrigeration, server, and lights) have kept running, saving thousands of dollars while sustaining lifesaving medications and vaccines.
Founded in 2020, Henderson-based MDX Labs is the top privately held molecular and clinical diagnostic laboratory in the state of Nevada. MDX provides on-site testing services to a range of manufacturers, casinos, entertainers, restaurants, and nonprofit organizations, and it is the official overflow laboratory for the Southern Nevada Health District.
MDX Labs houses large quantities of vaccines, patient samples, and medications that require refrigeration. When grid outages occurred in the past, MDX would often lose tens of thousands of dollars in product and face periods of product unavailability while awaiting restock. In late 2021, MDX began searching for a battery backup system and discovered NeoVolta, which features a clean lithium iron phosphate battery and a hybrid inverter that can accept 208-volt power connections. NeoVolta can also charge from the power grid, eliminating the need for solar installation. In March 2022, MDX Labs installed NeoVolta’s NV14 Energy Storage System.

- Additional $630 Million in California State Funding Set Aside to Support Residential Low-Income Solar Plus Storage Adopters
- NeoVolta Poised for California’s NEM Incentives to Pair Solar with Battery Storage
SAN DIEGO, Jan. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeoVolta Inc. (NASDAQ: NEOV) – NeoVolta Inc., manufacturer of Smart Energy Storage Solutions, announced today that it expects California’s recently updated Net Energy Metering (NEM) program to drive increased demand for energy storage systems.
On December 15, 2022, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued a decision to update the NEM tariff to promote consumer adoption of solar and battery storage. The program will go into effect on April 13, 2023. According to the CPUC, the move was designed to financially incentivize Californians to install both battery and solar systems.
The CPUC stated that the current NEM 2.0 program was not aligned with California’s grid reliability and climate goals, noting that the increased use of electricity between 4 and 9 p.m. causes dependence on fossil fuel gas plants to meet the demand. With the battery storage incentive, the CPUC hopes to see an increased adoption of residential energy storage that will better support the needs of the grid, with customers saving self-generated solar energy for use in the evening hours.
An additional $630 million in state funding has been set aside by the California State Legislature for residential low-income solar plus battery storage adopters. The decision bolsters federal incentives provided by the Inflation Reduction Act for solar and battery storage.
It’s important to note that NEM 3.0 is not retroactive. Rooftop solar systems installed under NEM 2.0 will remain under that policy for a 20-year grandfathering period. This means existing rooftop solar owners who add a battery after the April 13 deadline will not be subject to NEM 3.0.
“We expect that NEM 3.0 will make Californians more aware of their energy consumption, encouraging them to conserve energy and pair rooftop solar systems with battery storage,” said NeoVolta CEO Brent Willson. “Californians who adopt this strategy will dramatically reduce their electrical bills while increasing their energy resiliency during periods of prolonged blackouts, fires, and flooding.”
California’s vast solar plus storage market has a dramatic impact on the grid. California has about 12 GW of distributed solar generation already installed, equal to nearly 25% of peak demand statewide. California also has more than 80,000 customer-owned batteries connected to the grid, with a storage potential of 900 MW, according to a September 2022 study by the California Solar & Storage Association.
