2022.01.17 01:22 Patches765 DnD-5th: The Temple (Part 4)
Previously, DnD-5th: The Temple (Part 3). Alternatively, Intelligent Gaming Index.
Continuing after the milestone level...
The Mirror Does What? The group talked about the journey back to their guildhouse to take a long rest. It was at this point, I realized something got overlooked. During their first encounter into the temple, specifically the section entitled Treasure, or was it?, $Fiance and $son found a secret compartment on the side of a wardrobe that contained a full length body mirror.
$Fiance flubbed trying to remove it, but cashed in an inspiration chip to get a reroll. He succeeded. He had the mirror in his possession. He had previously brought it back to the base, and $Son had identified it, but I realized weeks later after reviewing a site that specifically analyzes this module that I don't think the mirror was fully identified.
To clarify, I went over the description in the module and not the DMG. It was extremely abbreviated in the module. It came off as a relatively minor item from the group's perspective, but the reality is, it was rather powerful. This was one example where I had to take the blame on. I didn't explain it to $Son thoroughly, and he in turn, couldn't make a choice to explain it to the group.
The mirror can make portals.
With this newfound knowledge, we did a brief retcon where the mirror was used at their guildhouse and the portal was in a secret room they had used to rest in off of the Air Temple.
This allowed trips to and from the guildhouse (and potentially other areas) to be much more expedient.
The Fire Temple At this time, $Pasta made a habit of collecting the robes of the "high priest" of the different sects within the cultist temple. His default was the white robe. He even made a custom figuring by combining different models.
The group encountered a huge granite chamber, with fire pits, braziers, and pots of golden oil. Large chimes were mounted to the ceiling above one of the pits.
$Pasta once again took lead, and thought he figured out the process, but all he ended up doing was causing the chimes to ring. The door opened, and an acolyte entered the chamber from a previously hidden room.
Roleplaying was once again key. $Pasta took upon the role of being from the Air Temple, and managed to get in close. I thought he was going to convince the acolyte to take him to the high priest or equivalent, but then he surprised all of us.
$Pasta: I shank him.Given everything up to the point seemed very civil, with $Pasta playing the role perfectly, this came as a surprise. I have him sneak attack accordingly. One-shotted.
$Angel: What are fair and just folk such as you doing in this foul place of pain and base wickedness?This threw the group into a tailspin. What were they doing here? $Pasta talked about Spagi, and they acknowledged that they serve Spagi as well as other Gods of Good.
$Angel: Now, good folk, place each and every weapon you possess, all of your holy symbols, magic items, silvered items, and magical herbs before this crystal — the Window of the Planes of Weal — and then quickly step out of the west door. Count slowly to 77, and do not return in that time, for we shall send a Ray of Just Might through these items. Any flesh in the place would be blasted to oblivion by the ray, and any mortal eye beholding its glory would be forever blinded. But all your items will be made more effective by a factor of + 1, recharged by seven, or otherwise doubled in efficacy — though this power lasts but seven hours. Hurry! We must act now, for our time is fast running out. We can help but once per seven days, you know!RED FLAG! RED FLAG!
$Squire: GARY!!!It still puts me in stiches from laughing so hard whenever he does that. Some of the room are... irregularly shaped. It was also this room they got jumped by a su-monster. $Squire felt fear... because 5d6 psychic damage definitely hurt... a lot. It's not that the creature was particularly tough, but the group had such a hard time hitting it. Bad dice rolls all around. They knew fear... and I loved every bit of it.
$Squire: We need to make we don't rush into rooms. We should be checking the ceiling, etc. Make sure there are no traps or ambushes. $Pasta: No problem!And then $Pasta charged into the next room, without looking at the ceiling or taking any precautions what-so-ever.

2022.01.17 01:22 Titan828 Does anyone know what happened to the youtuber Itsstillsinking?
Back in 2018 there was a youtuber named Itsstillsinking who most notably made this real-time sinking of the RMS Empress of Ireland and with it included the documentary Journey to Oblivion -- The Empress of Ireland Story: Empress Of Ireland Real Time Sinking 14 MINUTES - YouTube (the original video was deleted but another youtuber managed to download and upload it before it was deleted. However, Journey to Oblivion was not salvaged). Here is an early video by Itsstillsinking: UE4 Empress Test - YouTube
Also, Itsstillsinking took the 2016 Titanic real-time sinking by THG and darkened it, dimmed down the lights and added video commentary from deleted scenes of the 1997 movie and Titanic: Death of a Dream and Titanic: The Legend Lives On, which is actually how I learned about Titanic: The Complete Story and today I continue to come back to it. Overall, I loved these videos.
But then in late 2018 or early 2019 this channel closed down/these two videos in question (and the other videos) were no longer publicly available which greatly disappointed me because I really enjoyed them.
I'm curious as to what happened to Itsstillsinking; and if anyone is able to find a full version of Journey to Oblivion (not the trailer) please let me know because I only saw that once or twice and I would love to see that again.

2022.01.17 01:22 OrdinaryAsk1 What do you guys think about tilted towers coming on the 18th?
Honestly, according to leaks, the snow melts every 3 days, with the 5th stage being today, meaning the snow around titled should melt on the 19th, not 18th. But even if it does, I bet the ice blocks are going to stay another week, and the week 8 challenges involving tilted are next week, meaning it should be next week and not in 2 days.

2022.01.17 01:22 Claustecter1015 [Blackburn] Nikola Jokić: “The whole league knows we can’t make a shot.”
Jokic finished the game today with 25 points, 15 rebounds and 14 assists on 10/18 shooting in 37 minutes of play. After an excellent 3rd quarter, Jazz opted to send hard double teams his way to help Gobert out and the Nuggets missed one open three after another.
The Nuggets shot 11/43 from the 3 point on good to great looks.

2022.01.17 01:22 Hopeful_Guidance6836 Qualm against voluntary extinction that is ultimately arbitrary.
Hello you sentient monkey people. I have a rant that I must type down. Maybe I’ll be able to sort out my thoughts.
I recognize the moral negativity of bringing a conscious being into a hostile universe. A “being” that does not exist faces absolutely no pain, whereas a conscious being absolutely will. The search for meaning and physical sustenance is endless and ultimately pointless. Even in a post-scarcity utopia where a citizen has reasonable confidence in being supplied with basic necessities, Mother Nature will still have her ways of threatening this theoretical society. In addition, the search for meaning will not only still exist but it may actually wax in intensity as humans will now be forced to come to terms with the reality of existence instead of being enslaved to the daily grind of meaningless labor and the opium of religion.
In short, even a utopia will still contain inescapable pain.
However, the reason why I don’t end it all right here and would not like civilization to undergo voluntary extinction is because I’m curious and hopeful. I’m curious of the machinations of the universe and I’m also hopeful that society can slowly build itself into an equitable, intelligent civilization. A society that maximizes pleasure and minimizes unnecessary pain.
As far as we can tell, we are the only highly conscious species in the universe. I don’t think we have an “obligation” to understand the universe and whatever may lie beyond, but I do think it would be a tremendous waste to enact voluntary extinction.
I must realize something, however. The notion that humanity should perpetuate its existence for comprehending the universe is still subjective. Yes, it would be true that the welfare of conscious beings would improve in unimaginable ways, but to make this humanity’s goal is just that, a goal, a social construction.
As hard as it is to swallow, my desire for conscious beings to maximize pleasure and minimize unnecessary pain and to seek solutions for the universe’s mysteries is subjective. The universe would not care if humans were here today and gone tomorrow. The universe would still expand into infinity whether or not a few of its life forms decided to think about its great mysteries.
Does this mean we should stop improving society? Absolutely not! As long as babies are born, maximizing pleasure and minimizing unnecessary pain should be pursued.
If pain is to be done away with completely. I think voluntary extinction is the only option.
