There's so much to do in Colorado, and so little time. And now that we're one of the top travel destinations in the entire world, we should probably capitalize on it. So let's share everything amazing and local happening in this state.

2023.03.27 06:14 ceeelljay Budget Recap - HCOL - Sydney, Australia - $59K AUD/$40k USD, 80 guests

Hi lovely people
I don't often see Australian centric recaps, so here is my contribution! My husband *gasp* and I got married a few weeks ago in Sydney, Australia. It was fully paid for by us, other than my family paying for my wedding dress/alterations. My partner's family gave us a cash gift as a wedding present later, so we've used some of this to offset some of our costs.
The Background
Both of us are expats, so settling on a European vs ANZ location was always going to be tricky. We decided that the most fair option was to make all of our family and friends travel, as it wasn't going to be convenient for anyone, and then at least it was convenient for us. This meant our families could at least use the trip as an opportunity to spend time with us, rather than just us jetting in and out to a honeymoon later. We also wanted to book something local to Sydney, so that everyone would land and then not need to travel again regionally.
Total invited: 143 including us (knowing many of these were family who could never afford to come)
Total RSVPs: 82
Total attended: 80
Venue capacity: 107
We did invites (no save-the-dates) in stages. Stage 1 was all global family and close friends who would have to travel significant distances (~24 hours), and we gave them 14 month notice so they could decide/book flights at cheapest possible 12 month mark. We asked them to decline ASAP if they couldn't make it, which helped smooth out the next round. Stage 2 was all friends who would have to travel less but still significant planning (~4 hours), and we gave them 10 months notice. Stage 3 were local friends, we gave them 5 months notice. I don't know about other AU planners, but I've received 1 save-the-date in all the weddings I've ever been to - all others have been direct invites and around 6 months in advance.
We had 2 late notice cancels due to family emergencies the week of, but otherwise no other cancellations. We had 1 late addition of a very new newborn who ended up being too hard to find care for as the time came around. We didn't hear them once, slept through the whole wedding. We did not invite children as our venue was completely not suitable for anything other than babes-in-arms.
Wedding Party
We had a semi-informal group of wedding-mates - I had 3 girls and 2 guys, partner had 3 guys. It worked completely fine. We didn't do formalities and didn't ask them to walk in officially, once pre-photos were taken they became like usual guests.
The Week Plan
As we had so many people travelling, our families really wanted multiple events. I was ok with drinks, but wasn't so much on brunch. It's really hard to find venues that we wouldn't end up spending $5k on a group of 40 people for breakfast, and it just wasn't in our budget. We compromised with a day after picnic, and international drinks on the Thursday prior. No rehearsal dinner as our wedding party weren't a part of the ceremony.
The Day Plan
My partner got ready in a hotel 10mins down the road, I got ready at home. I fully, fully condone sleeping alone the night before your wedding. I had 9 hours of sleep and woke up excited and refreshed for the day. My girls arrived at 7:30am, we walked down to a hair salon and did hair together in one block. I invited closer family to join this too. Make up was done 1 by 1 at our place while we snacked on breakfast and chatted. We then were picked up by BMW vans separately, and met at a garden spot in the city for first look and family/bridal party pics from 2pm-3:45pm. We then met our bridal party +1s and wider family at a bar near the venue for a pre-wedding drink (paid by us), and then headed to the venue with just immediate family. Bridal party were then guests from meeting their +1s onwards. The ceremony was from 6:15pm-6:45pm, canapés and cocktails happened while we took 15mins of pics. We joined the reception at 7pm, in time for our MC to start! The event wrapped at midnight, we danced everyone out and were the last people there. We even snuck off for a cheeky after drink with some friends to their place after. In bed by 2am. Big day!
The Venue
Our venue was fairly all inclusive, and had a day of coordinator attached. I don't recall anything about them other than a brief intro, but nothing went wrong so (I guess?) everything was fine. We decided on an open bar last minute which was less expensive than I expected. We also opted for the more luxe beverage package that had more wine & beer options. Our package included Chefs Selection Canapés (3 pieces pp), shared cheese & meat boards for the table, 3x shared platter mains, 3x sides, sourdough rolls & butter, 3x roving dessert canapés. We opted for them to make the cake too (70x fingers, served roving). Amazing feedback on all the food, we were super happy. They were generally easy enough to deal with but found the coordinator in the lead up a bit challenging.
I really wanted both a band AND a DJ for the wedding. We managed to find a duo who did both, which was absolutely awesome. 100% can recommend if you want their details - DM me.
Budget Recap
Flowers were not a priority, so we did wedding party bunches only, plus bouts for men + corsages for mums and spent on fairy lights that the venue set up. No videographer, but the most epic photographer ever. We did all our own printing for welcome signs, menus and seating charts. My partner designed everything. We did digital invites only.

Ceremony & Reception, (inc Cake and Decorations) $18,413
Photographer - 12 hours + Engagement shoot $4,400
Celebrant & Paperwork $1,490
Band/DJ Duo - 6 hours $2,970
Bar tab (fully open, house spirits) $1,500
Flowers $1,147
Printing $322
Hair (7 people, mix blow dries and styles) $690
Make up (4 people) $600
Vans (3 hours) $660
Drinks for minivans $300
Hotel for groom $568
Thursday Welcome drinks + food $3,500
Sunday picnic $1,334
Drinks pre-wedding with family $800
Honeymoon $6,830
Total $45,604
What we paid ourselves/out of my family's dress contribution:

Dress (Anna Campbell) $6,750
Alterations $1,200
Veil $250
Shoes $200
Dry cleaning $700 (veil + dress)
Wedding bands $3,000
His suit $1,000
Total $13,100
As he paid for my (very expensive) engagement ring, I opted to pay for our wedding bands myself. He paid for his own suit. We didn't have wedding party formal outfits, just asked everyone to wear something navy/charcoal for men and black dresses/nude shoes for ladies.
Total... for real.... $58,704 (rounded up to $59k for the heading). I can't say what else we spent on Ubers, quick car rentals for chores, etc - likely in excess of $61k across the time of planning/organising. We also took our families out for a thank you dinner at the end of the week for $1,500, not included above.
What went well/badly
Nothing really went wrong. The weather could have been better that week (very seasonally warm for the city), but aside from that, it was fine. My hair dropped quickly due to sweat, but I can't complain - my make up stayed put which was more important!
Our family and friends went above and beyond for us. We received over $15k in cash gifts from our friends and family at the end, which we put towards our honeymoon and funding a few other things. The rest will go back into savings!
It does go by very fast. Enjoy every moment of the week, it's a super special time. Also, HOLY HELL dry cleaning is expensive.

2023.03.27 06:02 Massive_Level_7127 Are Bone Conduction headphones Safety and Why They are safe?

Are Bone Conduction headphones Safety and Why They are safe?
Did you know that a new type of headphones is popular among young people now? They are bone conduction headphones. They’re pretty cool, and a different type of headphone than all the ones that came before it. If you haven’t read it, follow my article to find out.

What are bone conduction headphones?

Bone conduction headphones are headphones in which the sound generating unit is attached to temples. Their vocal units convert sound into mechanical vibrations, which cause bone vibrations, and transmit the sound to the auditory nerve.And then we hear the sound.

Are bone conduction headphones safety?

Just to get straight to my point, bone conduction headphones are safe and health, they are the healthiest kind of headphones. There are several reasons.They cause less hearing damage, less damage to cranial nerves and auditory nerves than traditional headphones, and are safer during wearing.
Safety of bone conduction headphones 1: it is less harmful to hearing

First of all, because hearing damage generally occurs in the eardrum and inner ear, bone conduction headphones rely on human bones to transmit sound, and they do not need to pass through the ear canal and tympanic membrane, so damage to the tympanic membrane can be avoided. Compared with conventional headphones, the vibration waves of bone conduction headphones are also relatively moderate, which will have less impact on auditory hair cells, so they are the headphones that cause the least damage to the ears.

Safety of bone conduction headphones 2: it does less damage to the auditory nerve

Next, let me talk about the problem of electromagnetic waves. Most electronic products have problems with electromagnetic waves, but the strength of electromagnetic waves varies. The electromagnetic waves of traditional headphones are relatively stronger, and it is easier to cause damage to the human brain and hearing nerves. The electromagnetic waves of bone conduction headphones are extremely weak, they have the same intensity as the electromagnetic waves existing in nature, and will not cause damage to the human brain and hearing nerves.

Safety of bone conduction headphones 3: pay attention to environmental sound to protect your safety

The way bone conduction headphones are worn can also help the wearer avoid the dangers of wearing them. They don’t need to be plugged into the ear canal when you wear them, and you can still keep an eye on the surrounding environment while listening to music with them. For example, if you wear bone conduction headphones when crossing the road, you will not be in danger because you cannot hear the sound of the horn; when you are exercising outdoors, you can also hear the sound behind you by wearing them to avoid some dangerous situations.
So,why they are so safe?This is determined by its working principle.

The working principle of bone conduction headphones

Bone conduction headphones are headphones based on bone conduction technology. Bone conduction is a sound conduction method with bones as the medium. It converts sound into mechanical vibrations of different frequencies, and transmits sound waves through the human skull, bone labyrinth, inner ear lymph fluid, spiral organ, and auditory center.

Compared with the classic sound conduction method of transmitting sound waves through the eardrum, bone conduction saves many steps of sound wave transmission, and it can achieve clear sound reproduction in noisy environments, and sound waves will not affect others due to diffusion in the air.
In fact, the working principle of bone conduction is not mysterious. Each of us has experienced it in our daily life. When you eat, you hear the sound of the food being bitten off, but others cannot hear this sound, because the vibration of the food is transmitted to your auditory central nerve through the teeth and bones, and finally the sound is produced. This is an example of classic bone conduction. You can also knock your teeth now. Did you hear the sound? This is the sound passing through your skull to the auditory nerve, which also uses the principle of bone conduction.
There are more and more brands of Bluetooth bone conduction headphones in the market, so how to choose the right one?My suggestion is to pay attention to the two key points: sound quality and sound leakage reduction, and choose the brands with better technology accumulation.Here are five best bone conduction headphones for you all.

1 Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction headphones

Recommended reason:
Wissonly is one of the few bone conduction headphone brands that have mastered bone conduction vibrator technology, and one of the few brands in the industry that have sustained experience in using bone conduction technology to protect hearing. Wissonly Hi Runner advocate a healthy way to listen. They perfectly combine the principles of healthy hearing and bone conduction sound transmission, to create a non-in-ear and non-ear-damaging bone conduction headphone which can effectively protect hearing.
Due to the particularity of the technical principle, sound quality of bone conduction headphones is more difficult to be improved . To this end, Wissonly Hi Runner subverts the traditional sound quality scheme, makes a breakthrough to use the large-size bone conduction vibrator. Through structural optimization, the effective vibration area of the vibrator is increased by 35%, thereby improving the vibrator sound efficiency, making the sound more powerful.It also optimizing the direction of sound transmission, reducing sound loss during sound transmission, and making the sound more concentrated.
The skin-friendly silicone material of the Wissonly Hi Runner body is a product that can be in contact with the skin for a long time. It is naturally a better choice and feels good to the touch. Because the entire headphone is made of skin-friendly material, it is very comfortable to wear. Even if you wear glasses, you can still hang it firmly on your ears. The headphone frame uses memory titanium, which has the advantage of being stretchable and lightweight.

2. Philips A6606 bone conduction headphones

Recommended reason:
It is equipped with a night run lamp for safe lighting, which turns on the LED lamp when running at night, and showing the position and ensuring safety. Built-in 15mm bone conduction vibrator and open acoustic structure in headphones bring a wide sense of space, while allowing you to enjoy a shocking bass effect.
It has IP67 dustproof and waterproof certification, which can completely prevent dust from entering headphones, and it can be used normally even in rainy days, but it can’t be used when swimming.

3 AfterShokz OPENRUN PRO bone conduction headphones

Recommended reason:
Openrun Pro are ear mounted style headphones. But thanks to the lightweight materials such as titanium alloy used in the basic frame of the headphones, the overall weight of the headphones is only 26g, and there is no feeling of weight when worn. It is worth mentioning that the headphones have an IP67 waterproof and dustproof grade, and that they can be washed and rinsed with water. In addition to benefiting from the plating process on its surface, of course, also because of the overall body design, Openrun Pro have better waterproof characteristics. In addition, they also uses dual silicon microphones. In the right side of the headphones, you can see the microphone cut-out reserved for the microphone. With CVC’s noise reduction algorithm, they can effectively eliminate the impact to calls in complex environments.

4.Earsopen PEACE Bone Conduction Headphones

Recommended reason:
Earsopen PEACE is a bone conduction headphone with a novel wearing method. It adopts a clip-on design, which has a certain stability in wearing. It can be worn only by clipping it in the ear canal, and it also supports single ear wearing. IPX7 waterproof performance can also be easily competent for waterproof and sweat-proof work. With the charging case, it can complete the daily wear and use of electricity for nearly a week. The only disadvantage is that the price is slightly higher and the charging case area is a bit bulky. If you carry it in a sports field, you will feel a certain weight, and you will feel uncomfortable if you wear it for a long time.

5.Haylou PurFree bone conduction headphones

Recommended reason:
Haylou PurFree performs well overall, the headphone is only weighs 28g, there is almost no weight sense to wear. And the surface of the headphones is made of soft materials, and the wearing comfort is good. In terms of sound quality, it is also equipped with directional audio directional technology. It is a technology that allows the timbre to be concentrated and dive deeper at low frequencies, so that the rhythm of the song will be stronger. The battery life is good, and it lasts for 8 hours of music playback.
The waterproof grade is not high, and there is no built-in storage, which may be its disadvantage.
Among the several bone conduction headphones recommended above, Wissonly and Aftershokz are the two products with the best overall performance, both in terms of sound quality, safety, comfort and sound leakage reduction.Considering the cost performance ratio, Wissonly will be better and worth recommending.

2023.03.27 06:00 Crimson_roses1 Can I get feedback on a scene?

I was originally worried this crucial scene was going to be boring, but now I am fairly happy with it. I would love to hear y'all's thoughts on it. a bit backstory; my MC, Cecilia is being hunted down by an army because they think she caused a plague that is rampaging across the country of Otril. She has escaped their grasps and came upon a group of people. After a bit of internal debate, Cecilia decided that it would be the safest option to convince them to let her travel with them.

“How would you like to join us for a short rest? I’d say we’re due for one.”
Cecilia nodded, looking at the others. They followed Bastien to a small spot just off road. It was nothing remarkably, just a couple of stones placed around the long dead remnants of a campfire. Bastien sat down on the largest rock as the two women settled on slightly smaller ones. Hue, preoccupied by his slingshot, plopped down on the dirt. Cecilia bit her lip as she sat down a length away from the others.
“What’s your name, I’m Bastien Fabron.”
“Oh, I’m Lecia,” she said, her eyes darting between the group members.
The teenage girl stared intently at Cecilia, her face fixed in a slightly disgusted look. The other woman, who appeared to be around the same age as Cecilia, was looking at the ground.
“Just Lecia?” Bastien asked, his eyebrows creased as if he knew something.
“Um, yeah. Just Lecia.”
“It’s nice to meet you. It seemed like you already met Hue, so this one,” He paused and pointed at the teen girl. “Is Ada Imani. The other one is Sarra Depont.”
Cecilia could feel the women’s eyes upon her. Bastien cleared his throat and pulled his map out. He laid it on the ground and rested his elbows on his knees. The map was nothing special. It was a simple map of the known world, a c-shaped stretch of land with a large sea in the middle. The two, large islands of Ellriheimr sat on the edge of the parchment and the southern lands stretched down to nothing. A long road that wrapped around the map was marked with a thick line. The road, known as the pilgrim’s path, crossed through every nation, supposedly following the path the Goddess Iysn took.
“Are you pilgrims?” Cecilia asked.
Bastien looked up. “Yes. Hue and Ada are on pilgrimages and I’m their guardian priest.”
Cecilia looked at Sarra curiously, who just ignored her.
“Uh, Sarra is on her first solo pilgrimage,” He said, pulling Cecilia’s attention back. “Where are you headed? Are you a pilgrim too?”
She felt her stomach drop. There was no way any of them would help her escape if they knew what dangers followed her.
“Oh, uh, no. I’m traveling to, uh, Odamis,” She lied, her heart pounding. “I’m, uh, going to visit an old friend.”
Sarra looked up sharply, making Cecilia gulp. Her face was full of mistrust, yet didn’t say a word.
“Odamis?” Bastien tilted his head. “We’re heading there eventually, if you’d like to join us. It’s not the safest to travel alone.”
Cecilia smiled. “That would be nice. I suppose there would be a few stops along the way?”
“There are only two cathedrals left in Otril, so we will be in Odamis in around a week.” He explained, dragging a finger along the line on the map.
“Hold on!”
Cecilia and Bastien turned to Sarra. She had her arms crossed and a glare fixed on Cecilia.
“We don’t know her, yet you are just going to let her tag along? I get that she brought Hue’s toy back-”
“It’s not a toy!” Hue huffed, jumping up.
Sarra waved the interruption away. “Whatever, that doesn’t mean we should instantly trust her. By the way she looks, I doubt she even knows someone in Aarsel, And that’s only a day from here!”
Cecilia frowned. Hue stomped up to her and looked up.
“I believe you know people,” He said, patting her knee.
She smiled tensely as Bastien let out a big sigh.
“Sarra, we didn’t know you when you first joined us-”
Sarra stood up in a huff. “This is different! I am a part of the church, whether I come from Odamis or your abbey in Caskel doesn’t matter! I can be trusted because I follow the Great Mother’s path!”
Bastien held up a hand, stopping her. Sarra bit her lip and sat back down.
“Yes, Lecia said she was not a pilgrim, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t follow Iysn’s path. We cannot judge unless she gives us a reason to. Look at her, does she appear Maddened?”
He paused, pointing at Cecilia. Sarra turned her head away.
“No, she doesn’t,” He continued softly. “What reason do we have to not trust her? Did she hurt Hue when he met her? Did she hurt us when we were not looking? Did she do anything to make us not trust her? No. She kept Hue from wandering off and brought his slingshot back. The least we can do is keep her company while we travel in the same direction.”
Sarra sighed and threw her hands up in defeat. Satisfied with that response, Bastien turned back to his map.

2023.03.27 05:53 daisy_112232 [20F4M] Pulled Over

It's around 2AM, and you're speeding down the backroads after a night of drinking. You feel on top of the world, unstoppable, until you see the flashing of red and blue behind you. You think to yourself, "Fuck", as you pull to the side of the road.
However, you feel like luck may still be on your side, as there's only one officer in the vehicle. A lone female in a uniform that looks a little too tight, and you start thinking about how you can take advantage of her.
Will you attempt to bargain with me, offering your information in exchange for flashing you or something? Will you try and manipulate me?
I would love it if you continued from the prompt.
My kinks are nearly endless, but some favorites are manipulation, rough, throat fucking, public, leashing (i.e. maybe your belt), and generally being treated like a slut
My only limits are scat, gore, vore, and water sports
I always play myself, 5'6, blonde hair, blue eyes, c-cup chest, 123lbs
My kik is daisy_112232
I am 18+ and all participants and characters must be 18+

2023.03.27 05:33 neon_batman 34 [M4F] Southern California- Disabled man looking for love

(First of all, you should know that I have a degenerative muscle disorder. Basically I have severe muscle weakness throughout my body and I use a power wheelchair to get around. I rely on caregivers for my daily needs.)
Hey there I’m Bobby! Here is a picture of me...
Dating apps are crap and I’ve found love on Reddit in the past so I’m back to find it again!
I’m very easygoing and really easy to talk to. I’m pretty reserved, I may seem shy at first but I just like to observe and listen before I speak(I don’t miss a thing!). Humor definitely keeps me going, I love to laugh and make others laugh. Anything from sarcastic remarks to cringey dad jokes, I love making others smile. I have been told that I am genuine, sweet and kind. My family is a big part of my life so family is very important to me. I live with them so I have plenty of love in my life, just not the romantic kind of love. I enjoy good food, good music and good company. I always try to keep a smile on my face and just keep on rollin(pun most definitely intended).
My Interests: I’m a huge sports fan. My favorite teams are the Padres, Chargers and Lakers(Bonus points if you enjoy watching sports!). FYI, I watch football every Sunday during the season. I love listening to music like Classic Rock and Alternative, mostly rock but I can appreciate most genres. Always up for new recommendations! Right now I’m really into a band called Wet Leg from the UK. Speaking of music I’m always down for a good concert. My favorite concerts I’ve attended have been The Eagles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Cage the Elephant, Zac Brown Band and AURORA. I watch all sorts of TV shows and movies. My favorite show of all time is Breaking Bad. Love the MCU! I’m also a big fan of Stand-up and comedy podcasts. Favorite Comedians: Tom Segura, Bert Kreischer, Andrew Schulz, Bobby Lee, Norm MacDonald, Mark Normand, Dave Chapelle, etc. Favorite Pods: YMH, Tigerbelly, 2Bears 1Cave, TYSO, Flagrant, Bad Friends, etc.
About You: I’m looking for my best friend and partner, someone who wants a serious monogamous relationship. I want someone who is kind and compassionate. Honest and loyal, a person I can trust implicitly. Someone who likes to laugh who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. Shared interests would be nice. When chatting with you I really don’t enjoy one word answers, there has to be real engagement on both sides of our conversations. I would love to find someone who is genuinely interested in getting to know me for me as I am them! As for location, I would prefer to find someone relatively close to make it easier to meet up but this is not a deal breaker. If you could eventually relocate that would be ideal but I get life isn’t that simple.
Still reading? I really appreciate it and if you are genuinely interested in getting to know me I look forward to hearing from you. To show me that you’ve read the entire post and your interest is serious, please include your favorite food in your message. Mine is Ribeye steak or Pizza. Also, please include a picture of yourself if you feel comfortable with that. If you have ANY questions regarding my condition please feel free to ask. No question will offend me.
Please don’t be put off by my disability, I don’t bite ;)

2023.03.27 04:34 SanderSo47 CinemaScore Analysis – 2017 Edition

Link to the other editions:
1980s: 1986 1987 1988 1989
1990s: 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999
2000s: 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009
2010s: 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017
In this post, I kept track of every 2017 movie's CinemaScore (at least, the ones that got it). I plan to post for each subsequent year, one year per weekend. My intention is to see the evolution of each year and how the grades can either help or damage a movie's legs.
I plan to delve into each year and each movie that got a grade. While CinemaScore was founded in 1979, we didn't get a grade until 1982 and we didn't get full information until 1986.
Before starting, some notes:
In 2017, 129 movies received CinemaScores (2016 had 143). How did it go?
Surprisingly, this year had all grades (from A+ all the way to F). I'm impressed.


5 movies (3.87%) managed to get the rare A+. Generally, this indicates exceptional word of mouth and guarantees a long and healthy run. Of course, the bigger a movie opens, the weaker legs will turn out to be. These movies averaged a 3.77x multiplier. In comparison, 2016 had 4 movies with a 4.48x average multiplier.

21 movies (16.27%) managed to get the grade. This is where things get interesting. Generally, it indicates average word of mouth. The audience didn't love it, but didn't hate it. For some niche movies, this should be a fine score. But for IP-driven movies, this should be concerning as fans are more biased to the movie itself. These movies averaged a 2.91x multiplier. In comparison, 2016 had 23 movies with a 3.01x average multiplier.

2023.03.27 04:20 izzysc Jostled on newly restored tandem bike

My husband just finished restoring a Tandem T200 and we went on our first 20 mile ride today. It was really uncomfortable for me (stoker). I was bouncing around a lot and could feel every big and small bump in the road. We are looking to see if we can fit a new suspension seat post. Any recommendations? Or, any other ideas to make the ride more comfortable?
Other info: my saddle is Ergon SR sport gel saddle which I am fairly happy with (some sit bone pain) and I wear bike shorts.

2023.03.27 04:12 Digital_havok A message to everyone here, about the hero from pallet town. (Please read the full post!)

Well everyone, he did it. He has finally done it. The goal that was set, the long road of discovery after watching the legendary bird Pokémon fly over him and his pikachu, the very achievement that led him to this point has been awarded to him.
The long journey of Him becoming a Master may be over, but that doesn’t mean that was the end of him.
The Pokémon he met, the Friends he made along the way, the battles he faced and witnessed will all be with him.
It was hard to believe that he traveled everywhere to prove he was the best there ever was, but we already knew he was the best haven’t we?
In the long run, we watched him battle behind a tv screen or movie theater to watch him win, and we supported him along the way. No matter what, we helped him by cheering him on as kids.
Give yourself a pat on the back though, if it weren’t for you, for all of us, he would’ve lost, but watching the shows countless episodes a week every Saturday, we showed that we would wait, for him to succeed.
We watched him from different channels huh? Went from Kids WB, to Cartoon Network, then to Disney, and now Netflix. Which was crazy..
But let let’s talk about what our pal has done over the years. He’s fought a clone version of a legendary Pokémon before turning into stone, he stopped an all out war between 3 of the legendary bird Pokémon, helped a little girl reunite with her real father after mistaking an illusion for her real one.
And if that wasn’t enough, he saved a mythical Pokémon that could travel to any point in time, protected the tree of beginnings with the help of its protector, helped the exact same Pokémon that tried to destroy humans by protecting the island it resides in, stopped a space Pokémon, protected and helped a Pokémon mega evolve to restore the world from its danger of the evil Pokémon and many more.
He did all of this, and worked his butt off to become who he wanted to be. He was a hero the world needed.
And no matter where we were, we all had a chance to watch him and cheer him on as he becomes a Pokémon Master. Feels like yesterday when we all watched episodes of the first series or started from different shows.
Thank you to Ash Ketchum, and his Partner, Pikachu. To all of the People and Pokémon that stood with him.
But mostly, thank yourselves, for supporting the people who made all of this possible, to watching Pokémon, and to helping Ash become what he dreamed of. Clap for yourselves guys, you earned it.

2023.03.27 04:02 Tek466 21 [M4F] Illinois/Anywhere/Online - Any older women in need of a younger man for a close friendship or something more flirtatious? Been feeling pretty alone and could use someone. Anyone 18-60 is welcome.

My name is Dylan and I’m a 21 year old single guy from northeastern Illinois in the US.
While anyone 18 and up is welcome, I’d really like to meet an older woman. I’m mature for my age and would enjoy keeping someone older company in their 30s or 40s or older! I’m relaxing in bed enjoying a nice cup of tea and wanted to meet someone.
I’m seeking some kind of close connection with friendship being the main thing, however, I’m definitely open to things getting a bit spicier than that, whether that’s something where we remain friends yet can be flirty or romantic such as a friend with benefits for example.
I like to say upfront that I will always be mindful and considerate of your feelings and boundaries, especially concerning anything flirty or more intimate that we might get into. It’s important to me and we’d never have to do anything we weren’t comfortable with or ready for.
Physically I'm 6ft tall, I'm average/slim build, and I'm white/Caucasian with hazel eyes and dark brown hair. I wear glasses too. There’s a picture or two on my profile.
I don’t have any preference on body type for whom I find attractive. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. I’m also attracted to people older than me as well, hence being so open to meeting people.
I’m currently living at home, trying to get a job at a warehouse but long term career goals so far is to do something in the electrical field/trades such as a fire alarm systems technician as I’m good with technical things like that. I’ve got older parents and I live on a main road in a small farm house so I’ve been feeling pretty lonely most of my life. I’ve listed some interests of mine below!
Now that we've established who I am and what I'm looking for, here are a few interests of mine to get to know me better!
• Fall/Autumn season
I had to list this one because I just adore the fall and everything that comes with it. My birthday is in October too so it's always been my favorite month. I much prefer fall and winter over a muggy humid summer. In the cooler seasons there's always ways to warm up.
• Candles and Incense
I love candles and incense and stuff like this!! I feel like you don't find guys into this stuff that much but I definitely am an exception.
• Technology
I'm good at fixing electronics and I'm quite nerdy in that aspect. So if something breaks I can fix it ;) I'm also good with my hands and quite inclined mechanically and quite the nerd.
• Music
I love genres such as classic rock, alternative rock, psychedelic rock, gothic rock, heavy metal, punk, post punk, hardcore, etc. My current favorite bands are The Cure and Joy Division/New Order. But I like tons of older and newer bands as well. such as: Bauhaus, Velvet Underground, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Type O Negative, Nirvana, Rush, Pink Floyd, Janis Joplin, the Wipers, Spacemen 3, Meshuggah, Megadeth, Buzzcocks, MC5, Stooges, 13th Floor Elevators, Screaming Trees, Green Day, Alice in Chains, Asylum Party, My Bloody Valentine, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Jefferson Airplane, etc.
• Cooking and Baking
I like to cook and learn new recipes, as well as bake fun things too! It's always nice when the house feels nice and cozy and smells good. I appreciate the simple pleasures in life, a cozy cup of tea and music or a movie in bed or sitting outside is so nice!
• Animals
I love animals of all types, and I currently have an older cat which I adore to death! We rescued her from the local shelter. She's the sweetest thing. (I think I love her more than anyone in the house lol, she just makes me so happy) :) I also don't kill insects or bugs, I catch and release them outside.
• Art
I enjoy art, both creating it from time to time such as drawing, and admiring other peoples work. There's just something so fun about it and seeing things so beautiful.
• Houseplants
I love houseplants and really anything nature related and also spiritual such as crystals and rocks. I love to help my mom in caring for all of our plants and also gardening outside when its a good growing season. Its fun! I also like cottage core and goblin core type vibes and enjoy sitting out on the deck burning incense, its peaceful :)
• Photography
I recently got a DSLR camera, a Nikon D5500 and a D200 and I've really been enjoying taking photos of my cat and nature landscapes! This includes closeups, photos of trees, the fields, etc. I've been working a lot on composition, long exposures, getting nice blurred backgrounds, depth of field, etc. It's interesting to me.
That’s me! I hope you get a good taste of what I am like and if any of this catches your interest I’d love to hear from you and we can get to know each other further. Thanks for taking the time to read my post, hope to hear from you soon.

2023.03.27 04:02 DarkKirby14 Hater's Guide To The 2023 Created Sports Organization Baseball Season - Southwest Conference(Updates On Future Expansion)

as some of you should know, I am a fan of UrinatingTree on YouTube(I'm sure some are in here too), and decided to do a Hater's Guide to the teams in my league as well as some updates on future expansion plans and potential implementations to the season in terms of playoffs
- so I'm still going to run the poll but will also be picking 4 cities to get teams, which means 4 voted in and 4 of my choosing(I just want to get to 32 ASAP) - I may use one of the other modes for the playoffs as I want to blend the standings creating a 16 team playoff system thus eliminating the need for me to implement a crossover system
with that out the way, time to see what the season holds for this conference
Atlanta Thrashers - this team has got a lot of offensive skill and top end pitching in terms of starters so this team is a favorite but does have a flaw: for the most part they'll be leaning on their starting 9 as they don't have much depth there and the bullpen trying to close out games might get a bit dicey
Denver Raptors - this is a team that could surprise teams if they can get things clicking as they have some good offensive tools and a great ace in Troy Williams but have a problem of racking up Ks at the place and questions about their starting pitching. Contender or Cellar Dweller(not the band), no in between here
Edmonton Gear Grinders - another team that should find itself in contending status given their offensive tools and pitching potential but are a team that stays hot for long stretches and goes cold all the same. The road to getting their closer Richard Jeffery in the game can also be dicey too
Indianapolis Firebirds - a team that has great contact hitting and speed should cause havoc on the base paths should be interesting to watch along with their ace in Bren Berquist but their achilles heel is in what lies behind him along with their own issue of back-end bullpen arms. Sam Peterson is a shaky closing option. Also, where is their power hitting gonna come from?
Los Angeles Gryphons - solid contact hitting and speed is their greatest assets along with a great and sound defense behind him. They have a true ace but lack much behind him. Dylan Skille has potential as a closer if you can get games to him. Also feel like another punch that many lean on their starting 9 a lot
Mexico City Matadors - a team littered with great hitting talent and fundamentals. An ace in Leighton Smith is also nice to have along with their other starting pitchers but also lack consistent home run power and getting games to Marcus Snow to close out will be a challenge. Not a lot of pitching velocity either
Miami Knights - this is a true offensive juggernaut offense with contract and power hitting galore along with great fielding, and they may need the hitting and defense to carry the load because their pitching leaves a lot to be desired in some aspects. Will have to win a lot of high scoring affairs to go far
San Antonio Silverbacks - if you want a team that is going to pitch the daylights out of teams then this is your bunch. Kirby Cartwright is a prize many wish they had their disposal as well as their pitching as a whole. Their offense isn't the greatest thing since sliced bread but given their pitching, it may be enough but maybe not
Sacramento Sting - this bunch feels like a rag-tag group of sorts, even with stud pitcher Wade Marquis and great right fielder Cedrick Kahn. Depth in their main lineup and their bullpen is going to be a big question mark and a problem if the main guys slump
Seattle Metros - what is with this division in either featuring a lot of power or not much at all? It's very much the Seattle lineup but boasts superstar Johnathan Alexander in their mix and their starting pitching is great. Just get Thomas Kingery the ball with a lead and you're golden
St. Louis Rampage - this team features a lot of offensive power and they have depth in this lineup to certainly boast about too so they can cover for players if they go into a hitting slump but pitching is another issue, especially with Tabitha Reinhardt trying to re-invent herself as a pitcher as well. That can only end up one of two ways, and you know what those are
Tampa Bay Sharks - another team also built to score runs and has a great ace. Seems like a theme in this division and their answer to the other aces is Drew Fries but need some of the other starting pitching to help out as well, along with their depth players. Utility Players is also a strength here
I'll save my predictions for that threat on Wednesday. Just thought I'd give my thoughts but if I am to pick a favorite for the two divisions right now, they'd be Atlanta and Tampa Bay

2023.03.27 04:00 PeanutTechno Super Adventure Rockman...what went wrong?

So! I have spend my weekend watching clips of Super Adventure Rockman, and reading the Archie adaptation of it. From both of those alone I can hear people asking "why?" to which my response was "to see if it REALLY was that bad". For reference, I have recently come down with a nasal infection due to allergies going haywire over the week (I get it's the first week of spring, but you'd think nature would let up on the allergies!). So I figured "why not?" So, first and foremost, Inafune actually apologized for this game, stating it to be "too dark". But then, Megamix and Gigamix are darker too! So that can't be the problem. I understand it used FMVs which lended slightly to the issue, but it didn't ruin everything. Now granted, there are times they reuse the audio or video clips to show when you go into battle, and everytime you take a shot or get hit there are sound effects. That's to be expected. But due to the hardware it was on, the recording can get a bit loud at times. Most of the cutscenes boil down to Rock walking in a location, maybe choosing a path, and occasionally being ambushed. A lot of Robot Masters being fought one after another can also get around to feeling tedious after a while. Nothing against the Robot Masters, it's just the setup: they're supposed to be bosses at the end of a stage, not spaced between a few enemies and exploration. But the real thing dragging the whole thing down in my opinion is Ra Moon. I'm going to copypaste my notes here so that way you can get a comparison between versions [with some additional notes I made in brackets like this]: - - - - Super Rockman Adventure timeline/notes:
(From the actual game and cutscenes)
* Lafront Ruins appears along with the Moon Temple and EMP field * Wily Travels to Lafront ruins * 3 Weeks Later, Wily stumbles across Ra Moon, who hijacks his computer and revives the MM2 Robot Master. Wily asks if it's a dream before Quickman confirms it isn't. Ra Moon introduces himself * Weeks later, Dr. Light notices a magnetic field over the Lafront Ruins, noting that IN ONE WEEK it has gotten much larger * Roll notes that that's where Wily went (I have no idea how she'd know this) * Roll Falls Ill * TIME LIMIT GIVEN: 2 Weeks until Roll Dies * Wily gives the world an ultimatum: Submit in 2 weeks or the world is destroyed * Light gives Megaman (and the original 8) a formula which will protect them from EMP interference) [Plot can be either the 8 help others worldwide and transfer the code OR that Rock goes almost alone aside from the following dictated by plot: Gutsman, * Roll says that people and robots believe in the power of love [This was originally shown in a flashback, I'm just putting it here so it makes sense chronologically] * Light sends support through items in the jungle * Rock makes it to the island, encounters Renbakun (a missile dropping enemy from Megaman 5) * He encounters a swarm of many different Mets and runs for it, reaching a fork in the road. Beat has done aerial recon and transfers data to Megaman, claiming that the left path is easier to get lost in, so they go right * Rock takes out another horde of Mets, and comes under attack by Metalman - METALMAN BOSSFIGHT - Metalman beaten *Megaman goes by the lake (Possible Bubbleman Bossfight?) - Bubbleman Bossfight * Megaman goes up the mountain, Beat brings him an E-Tank - Heatman Bossfight (Megaman beats him with Bubble Lead, location is on the mountainside * Wily is shown noting that Megaman used an E-Tank after the Heatman bossfight) * An Item Box is found, guarded by several Hari Harry and Kerog (AT LEAST 3 Hari Harry and 4 Kerogs, judging from the cutscene) * Flashman is encountered by the Mountainside and Rock notices. Flashman gets in a free hit on Rock by warping in behind Rock [in the cutside, the free hit is located on the side. Usually maximum competense would dictate a headshot from behind. However since Rock noticed Flashman, it is likely he anticpated this, meaning from a writing perspective if Rock dodges the shot the best place to hit would then be the legs, since the plot later down the line dictates that Rock uses 2 Chargeshots at once to take out Ra Moon.] - FLASHMAN BOSSFIGHT * Flashman beaten with Metal Blade (rip Flashman, you have a cool design) * Megaman goes through a small forest section up the mountain before discovering the Ra Moon Pyramid * Quickman states that if he beats Rock he will be the number 1 Robot, challenging him * Rock explains about the EMP, Quickman doesn't believe him, stating that Wily revived them all. Quickman gets in 4 FREE HITS. [Maximum competence dictates that due to superior speed, at least 2 of them are fatal. From a writing standpoint, if you choose to pin both of Rock's arms to the wall, that costs 2 of those hits and Rock has a 50/50 chance to escape at best before the 3rd hit {GUARANTEED FATAL due to a combination of Quickman's staus as a Rival of Megaman, as well as his superior speed} lands. ) - Quickman BOSSFIGHT * Rock explains that Earth will be destroyed by the EMP, which includes Dr. Wily, which leads to Quickman hesitating before getting in a killing blow * Shadowman appears and calls Quickman slow, and states that he (Shadowman) will be the one to end Rockman. [From a creative standpoint, this can result in either a 3 way battle or Quickman teaming up with Megaman to beat Shadowman, but the end result is Quickman taking his last hit from Shadowman.] * Rock is shown to be worn out after the fighting them, Quickman reveals that he now believe Rock, telling him to fight. Rock looks towards the temple and silently vows to take on whoever caused this. (Part 1 ends) * Ra Moon is seen extending it's tendrils into a black orb [I suspect this is him trying to form Ra Devil]. 6 Sniper Joes are seen working with Wily on Ra Thor. Ra Thor's blueprint is shown, with Wily claiming he'll "make the strongest Robot using the strongest computer" * Worldwide locations are shown with the blackout affecting them [This can be omitted, or at the very least shown to reveal that it has been at least 1 week since Rock left for the Ruins] * 3 Sniper Joes attempt to ambush Rock, but are defeated by Protoman, who warms him "there are lots of enemies here". * Megaman asks Blues why he's there to which Protoman responds "I figured when the world's in a pinch you'd be bitter to deal with it alone". Blues then states he'll work with Rock, but it would be better to work alone. * An Item Box is found nearby, giving Megaman an item similar to Proto Shield. [NOTE: This results in a defensive update which can halve damage, at the cost of also cutting your speed in half] * A flock of 15 Pipi appear. At least 3 Copipi get in a free hit and Rock escapes when a wall nearby caves in (yes I counted all the birds in the custscene) * Woodman appears, getting in 2 FREE HITS and a charging FREE HIT (which slightly increases damage) before slamming him against the wall [Meaning Rock takes 4 hits total. Maximum competense dictates at least the first hit is from Leaf Shield, as since they both know Woodman still has access to it, it makes no sense that Woodman wouldn't START equipped with it) - WOODMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock walks into the front of the Temple Ruins. He blasts a wall and gets an E-Tank, which he uses. * Rock encounters a Fan Fiend, who claims that if he beats Rock "[he'll] become a real robot!" (Don't worry Fan Fiend, I already do consider you one, buddy) * Airman is encountered - AIRMAN BOSSFIGHT [an optional failure cutscene reveals Elecman saving Rock from Airman] * A bunch of Bunby Helis are encountered near an abyss. Rock jumps to the other side, grabbing an Item Box in his haste, which he then throws to the bottom in a hurry. A Picketmet is encountered. * 10 Suzy are encountered (yes, I counted them in the cutscene), an Item Box is found before Rock is ambushed by Crashman - CRASHMAN BOSSFIGHT [an optional failure cutscene reveals Fireman present to rescue Megaman] * Rock wins, going into another cavelike domain. He is then told by Blues to wait until dark to take on a bunch of patrolling enemies outside. * A Mouse-like enemy from MM5 reveals to Wily that Rock is in Snakeman's area. * Rock is spotted by a Blader and Ladybug bots forcing him to flee. He falls for a pit trap into a cave * Rock encounters sliding blocks [maybe replace this with Yoku blocks?] and is then ambushed by at least 15 Battonton. An exploding Search Snake attempts to cause a cave in on top of Rock. Snakeman attempts to ambush Rock but is foiled by Beat - SNAKEMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock encounters the Met Family * Rock is ambushed by Needleman who gets in 3 FREE HITS - NEEDLEMAN BATTLE * Rock finds and uses an E-Tank * Rock climbs out of the cave, Geminiman enters from the temple entrance. Geminiman gets in 1 FREE HIT [Maximum competense rules that he could snipe Megaman from the entrance and get a free hit to the neck, which would slow Rock's aiming considerably] - GEMINIMAN BOSSFIGHT * Wily uses a hologram to brag to Rock about Ra Thor * Rock informs Wily about how the EMP field will kill everyone, which causes Ra Moon to cut transmissions. When Wily questions this, Ra Moon states it was a small glitch. * Rock wonders into a labyrinth * Rock comes across Magnetman at the exit to the labyrinth - MAGNETMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock heads further into a circular room and Hardman tries to ambush him - HARDMAN BOSSFIGHT * Hardman is done in by an acid trap, which Rock escapes * Upon climbing the pillars, Rock is ambushed by Topman who gets in 1 FREE HIT - TOPMAN BOSSFIGHT * Rock goes through a vent, finds and uses and E-Tank * Rock crawls out of the tunnel, and then gets ambushed by Sparkman, who get in 4 FREE HITS * Rock gets the Spark Shot, but it's revealed that Sparkman fakes his death and shocked Rock into unconsciousness * Rock is captured by Wily, who then reveals that the RMs have been revived, and introduces Rock to Ra Moon * Rock tells Wily that the EMP field is destroying the world, and Quickman warns Wily that Ra Moon is decieving them * Wily orders the RMs to destroy Megaman [which, from a writing perspective, SHOULD result in a 16-against 1 Bossfight, or at least a Bossrush] * Ra Moon zaps all 16 Robot Masters and tells his origin story. Wily calls BS on Ra Moon being thousands of years old [which I completely agree with] * Ra Moon declares his intent to betray Wily and destroy the Robot Masters. When Wily states he loves his Robot Masters, Ra Moon acts like it doesn't exist. * Wily orders Ra Thor to destroy Ra Moon. Ra Moon then reveals that he controls Ra Moon. Ra Moon disables MOST of the RMs, save for Metalman and Geminiman, who freed Megaman from a trap. * Ra Thor gets 3 FREE HITS on Rockman. Wily reveals that Ra Moon's speed is twice of Quickman's and he is 4 times as strong as Hardman. - RA THOR BOSSFIGHT * Ra Moon reveals that he anticipated Ra Thor's failure, and created the Ra Devil as a fallback. Ra Devil takes an attack from all 16 RMs and laughs it off. * Ra Moon reveals that "your attacks simply replenish his systems" [which from a decent writing perspective translates into "The only attack that can harm this boss is the Megabuster"]. Ra Devil zaps all 16 RMs and Rock fights it - Ra Devil bossfight * Next cutscene reveals Ra Devil gets at least 1 free shot in on top of the fact that Rock's HP is half depleted by this point. Wily tells Rock that Ra Devil can be overloaded, and to attack Ra Moon directly * Rock asks the RMs to give him their energy, Magnetman takes an attack meant for Rock, followed by Hardman and Woodman taking a second attack left for Rock. - Second Ra Devil Phase? * Rock defeats Ra Moon with 2 Charge Shots combined.
* Rock is fighting Breakman * Wily is betrayed by Ra Moon, who electrocutes him. In this version, Ra Moon has limited movement but uses his wires to reach [NOTE: From a writing standpoint, if you wish to make Ra Moon himself into a bossfight at the end, this gives him acess to grapples, electricity based moves, whiplike abilities, and laser blasts.] * Ra Moon tells Wily he will steal Wily's designs, have humanity destroy itself out of desparation, and leave no survivors * Ra Moon locks Wily out of most of his computers, and Wily escapes to a hidden lab while Ra Moon charges up an EMP wave * Ra Moon triggers the worldwide blackout, Rock has enough willpower to let out a chargeshot before being forced to shutdown * Rock wakes up, and is debriefed on the situation. * Dr Light says they have enough anti EMP coating to last a week. DEADLINE GIVEN: 1 WEEK * Cutman, Bombman and Gutsman also get protective coating * Breakman returns and is attacked by Ra Moon [Possible minibossfight against Ra Moon?]. Wily gets him into a secret lab and explains what happened * Wily reveals Ra Thor to Breakman, saying he planned for this, but needs more time to complete Ra Thor. * Rock and the others crashland in the Amazon, ambushed by Metalman * 5-against-4 Bossfight against Flashman, Bubbleman, Metalman and Heatman. * Rock claims he doesn't want to fight, Flashman says he doesn't care. - END RESULT OF BATTLE: Bombman disabled, Rock gets the 4 weapons. * Breakman reveals to Wily that Megaman has arrived * Woodman, Airman, and Crashman attack the group [Possible bossfight?] Rock talks them out of fightng * Rock explains the situation, Crashman agrees that things are suspicious * Quickman and Shadowman are shown eavesdropping, Shadowman stabs Quickman * Shadowman ambushes everyone, Rock and the rest retreat * Cutman and Bombman stay behind to heal the Wily RMs, Gutsman and Rush go along with Rock * Ra Moon bullshits his way into possessing Needleman and Snakeman (because plot) the instant they start to think that since the world is at stake, maybe this isn't the best plan * Snakeman and Needleman ambush Gutsman and Rock in a labyrinth * Quakewoman, Elecman, Centaurman and Timeman are revealed to be helping others across the world. Dr. Light reveals that people are beginning to run out of resources faster than anticipated due to panicking, and estimates maybe 100 hours at most * Geminiman ambushes the duo - GEMINIMAN BOSSFIGHT * Geminiman (or rather, his hologram) reveals that Ra Moon is at the heart of the Temple * Breakman returns with the rest of the RMs * 2 fights at once: 8-against 8 (MM2 VS MM3 RMs). FIGHT 2 is Megaman and Blues against Ra Thor. Rock gets Multiple weapons (in order): Bubble Lead, Spark Shot, Quick Boomerang, Metal Blade, Needle Cannon. - RA THOR BOSSFIGHT * Ra Moon takes out the MM2 RMs while they are caught up with the ones from MM3 * Rock equipped with Crash Bomb * Rock defeats Ra Thor with the rest of his Special Weapons (he directly states he used all the weapons energy) * Ra Moon, claiming the MM3 RMs to be his, tells them he will have revenge on Wily. The Robot Masters in question are Hardman, Topman, Magnetman, Geminiman, and Sparkman [I'm assuming that Sparkman recharged them? Could be wrong] * Ra Moon then claims that Ra Devil is "[Wily's design], perfected by my power". Ra Devil shrugs off a chargeshot and blasts Rock, leading Rock to land beside Wily * Wily reveals that between the remaining 5 MM3 RMs and Ra Devil, Ra Moon's power is diverted, and thus his attention is divided, leaving him defenseless. * Rock claims that one Chargeshot isn't enough and overloads to bring down Ra Moon - - - - END OF NOTES - - - - Do you see how little Ra Moon does throughout the plot, despite allegedly being the "main threat" here? Yes, he does make a worldwide blackout, but since this is his first action to the rest of the current cast, he is expected to do more than this. He remakes Wily's Robot Masters, which seems fine, and it does establish he can create them (Wily is visibly in awe when he asks if it's a dream). But this is where the problems start for Ra Moon. He remakes Wily's Robot Masters, but that is using someone else's design as opposed to his own planning, as without Wily stumbling upon him, he would've just collected dust. But it's not too late to turn things around just yet. Now granted, in the Archie adaptation, Wily is betrayed before his RMs find Megaman. But then that also adds the question "Ok, you've one upped the usual threat. Can you keep it going?" But sadly the answer is no. As the plot moves forwards, in the original, Ra Moon simply lets Wily use a hologram, that being the most direct he gets before cutting it off and lying to Wily (why someone who's a genius like Wily falls for this, I'll never know). In the Archie adaptation he possesses the MM3 Robot Masters, but until he is reached directly, that's the most he does. But wait, there's still the matter of Ra Thor to get to, right? Ra Thor was created by Wily using Ra Moon's tech in both versions, being made earlier in the original SAR than in the Archie Adaptation. Ra Moon chooses to highjack Ra Thor instead of fighting directly, despite showing him being able to use his wires to perform electric attacks, grabs, and possibly lasers in the Archie adaptation, again hiding behind something he didn't make. Rock defeats him (despite Wily claiming Ra Thor has no weakness, even though Ra Thor takes more damage from Spark Shock. You're welcome.), and in the Archie adaptation, it takes all his remaining Weapon Energy to do so. Ok so Ra Thor's been built up as a credible threat, but again, Ra Thor was made by Wily, and Ra Moon's still alive. So then Ra Moon attempts to up the ante, and reveals he used the Yellow Devil's blueprint's to make the Ra Devil, the REAL final boss of Super Adventure Rockman. The design makes the ripoff factor blatant. There's a few bits of gold, and the Ra Devil's eye looks like Ra Moon's but aside from that, it's a recolor (not that that's always a bad thing). Now, Ra Devil, as stated in my SAR notes is pretty much immune to almost everything (but not everything, since otherwise the Megaman series wouldn't be able to continue as a whole.) This cements Ra Devil's final boss status from a narritave standpoint, unless Ra Moon does the whole "I'll be back" thing. But as we all know, that doesn't happen, and Ra Moon only takes 2 chargeshots to kill. Now in the Archie version it's all down to the wire but in the original he just stands there and takes it. For an ancient supercompter, you'd think moving out of the way would be an easy thought process, but this is Ra Moon we're talking about. But the point still stands: When Ra Moon has run out of things to hide behind, he's defenseless. Sure, he had a decent start with a worldwide threat, but after that he's like one of those "Orcus on his throne" types who doesn't do a thing unless necessary, one of the villain archetypes I HATE. But back to the previous point most of you may have noticed, that being that Ra Moon hides behind others and takes credit. Now, I can hear some of you saying "But what makes it better when Wily does it?" Allow me to explain. Any Megaman fan worth their P-chips knows that the events of the whole series traces back to Wily's jealousy of Light, and that he stole the original 8 Robot Masters to get back at Dr. Light. Ra Moon doesn't even have that. But then Megaman 2 reveals Wily's own creations. It is important to note that in the Archie comics adaptation of Megaman 2, Light makes a remark that "There isn't an original bone in your [Albert's] body". But while Dr. Light could tell that Wily's batch took inspiration from Light's it brings a few ideas to the table (for example, Woodman is made mostly out of Hinoki cypress. Crashman's Crash Bombs latch onto targets as opposed to detonating on impact) Ra Moon doesn't have Wily's jealousy or history with Dr. Light. All we have is the word of a character who was just introduced that he is allegedly ancient and just takes credit for what he didn't do. And while we're on the subject of evil doubles, Wily even went as far as creating Copy Robot in Megaman 1, who matches Rock shot for shot. (Until Rock brings out the Magnet Beam.) But the point is that Wily's character and start is based on improving what was previously made, but UNLIKE Ra Moon, he can back up what he makes. Now yes, Ra Moon tries to outdo Wily, but unlike Wily he doesn't fight Rock directly. Wily, on the other hand does, through the Wily Machines (and eventually the Wily Capsules). And while some of you may point out that the Wily Machines might not count to them, let me tell you this: Ra Moon uses his wires offensively in the Archie adaptation, meaning that he does have the capacity to fight. But then if you argue that Wily doesn't fight you directly, in Megaman Powered Up, he visably flinches as he is hit with buster shots/oversized scissors/fireballs/icicles/bombs/energy arrows/oil/broom/whatever-you-use-depending-on-who-you-play-as. But he takes those hits, directly. Ra Moon only takes one hit and goes down, and even discounting that, he is defeated in a cutscene. No boss music, no energy bar. Just one hit. Wily, on the other hand, is able to keep coming back time and again with the Wily Machines we all know and...know. (And the hair puling Wily Capsules that may make our hair eventually resemble Wily's. Especially the Megaman 7 one.) TLDR VERSION: The reason why Ra Moon falls flat as a character is that he's all bark and no byte, and aside from acting indirectly, he only does a total of 2 things total to directly influence the plot. He can't keep up the threat factor of his first action and sits on the sidelines, and despite being able to defend himself, chooses not to (to the point of just sitting there in Super Adventure Rockman). He doesn't come back for more, and is the "orcus on his throne" type who doesn't do a thing until it's too late. This downfall for such a built up character drags down Super Adventure Rockman as a whole, and is the final nail in the coffin for why most don't like Super Adventure Rockman.

2023.03.27 03:45 shdwfknbnd Does this area have as much crime as people say ..? People keep telling me this is crackhead central.

I live in the Orlando metro area. Going to be moving to the Springfield area in a few months once my lease is up. I've lived in many different parts of FL (different towns/cities in central and south FL on the east coast. Never in the pan handle area), I've lived in NY (not long island), SC, and TX as well for short periods (~1 yr). I mostly grew up in NY and FL though. Been back here in FL now for about 7 years. It's just time for a change. I've mentioned to a few people that I'm going to be moving to the Springfield area. I've only been once.

To me it really didn't seem that bad. I only stayed around the south part of the city. Around Republic, Battlefield, Ozark. Those areas. I didn't actually go into the city nor do I plan on actually living in the city. I'm going to be living in one of the small towns *surrounding* the city. One of the things I noticed was... there was a lot of beat up, old looking trucks on the road. But that was literally the only indication that I saw that the area may be kind of... "not as wealthy" as where I'm from/what I'm used to. It's not like I encountered crime or anything like that.

So I gueeeesssss.... my question is. Why does the Springfield area get a bad rep? Is it really as bad as people say it is? Again, when I was there I didn't see anything *that* startling or eye catching. Maybe most of the people telling me the bad are sheltered? IDK. I can hold my own and feel generally pretty safe walking around anywhere in Orlando except maybe Pine Hills at night time. Even then I probably wouldn't get killed or anything like that.

Chapter 8: A Simple Barkeeper
Thomas Lainsfont watched the young girl's figure recede in the darkness.
Wearing only the clothes on her back and the sword by her side, she'd come and gone like the wind, riding atop the horse that had carried him through so many of his earlier adventures.
Refusing to even consider tarrying by a single night, she rode past the moonlit fields like a heroine from the tales of old.
Had her conviction been anything less, he never would have considered giving away his horse. The crowns he would make back, but that horse meant more to him than even the new life he'd built for himself. It was, in many ways, a reminder that he could always return to his old one.
The life he'd now left behind.
“May fortune find you, Your Highness.”
The wind picked up his whisper. Whether the princess heard, he would never know.
Thomas had seen many things in his life. He didn't even consider himself old, despite some of his younger patrons having become cheeky enough to suggest as such.
Even so, he could have reached twice his age and still not have expected to experience a night quite like this.
A young lady strolling into his decidedly motley pub, filled with motley customers, and declaring herself to be Juliette Contzen, 3rd Princess to the Kingdom of Tirea. And she didn't even look drunk.
It was a ridiculous thing to say.
Even with her dignified appearance, it was clear she couldn't be who she claimed. The royal family spent a great deal of their time in their official residence nearby. And yet the only times they were seen were when their carriages and escorts trundled through the centre of the village, kicking up dirt like a band of hogs allowed to roll through the mud.
Yes … none of them believed this outlandish claim, made by an eccentric girl in the middle of the night. She could have been some travelling dignitary's or merchant's daughter, causing whatever counted as mischief among those with too much time and crowns on hand.
Or she could have been Juliette Contzen, 3rd Princess to the Kingdom of Tirea.
Thomas had recognised her at once. He'd seen her rarely, but those times he did, she'd left a striking impression. A look of express intrigue often clouded her face as she sat gazing through her carriage window, looking at the village where all others would look away from it.
Yet even if he recognised her, he still couldn't believe that no guards had burst in behind her. He couldn't believe that no thundering footsteps of a dozen horses were shaking the floor. She was alone. In his pub. This princess who looked at the people of this village and thought of something other than droppings on the ground.
It seemed like a novelty at the time. A princess who may have actually harboured some interest, even academic, in the working state of a typical village.
He didn't expect that this same princess would turn that curiosity into a drive for something righteous.
I seek only a willing soul to explain to me the plights that dog your steps, so that as your princess and future queen, I may raise you from your squalor and abject misery.”
Thomas winced as he recalled those words.
They were laughingly received by the half-drunken bumpkins in his pub. In most other places, they would have drawn the ire of a mob. It was, after all, the royal house that was responsible for the hardships that its people had to endure.
And yet even if her words were taken in jest, there was no such light-heartedness in her voice. Those weren't the words of a politician, but a young girl with fierce determination raging in her eyes.
How long had it been since he'd seen someone with such purpose of spirit? And why had he never heard of her noble character before? It was said that Prince Tristan was determined and Princess Florella was just. But Princess Juliette … she was never seen or heard.
All this time, had she been a prisoner in her own world? A trapped soul forced to watch as others around her enveloped the land in the flames of greed?
Was that why she was alone?
Unaided and bereft of even a water flask?
Thomas had done what he could. But he knew he could have done more. His hand went to his side, fumbling for a moment as he forgot that he no longer carried his sword with him. Those days had passed like the seasons and were now a memory etched in fog. A part of him wished to go with her, but even now, he knew he still had his own battles to settle.
For one thing, he now had to prepare a gift for Marina. And also to—
“Master … Master …!”
Thomas hid his sigh as he turned.
The Princess wasn't the only visitor to make an unexpected appearance in his life today.
A young man came dashing down the road from the Royal Villa. Even at a distance, his voice carried like a striking bell, enough to wake the souls of the dead should he will it.
“Master!” said the young man, sucking in the air as he skidded to a halt. “Sorry I took so long. Had to argue my case just to be shot down. Would you believe it? They don't want to hire the guild to help patrol the roads. They said they have it under control. My boot! I was attacked by bearkin just making my way down the Queen's Lane. The Queen's Lane! The queen wouldn't want it named after her if she knew how many crossbow bolts now littered that road.”
Thomas's legs moved on their own. He made a sudden jolt towards the figure who'd now disappeared across the hilltop, before calming himself down.
She wasn't heading up the Queen's Lane, but down the country roads towards the lowlands. The bearkin tribes had no territory there. No, there were no bearkins south of here. Only gnolls. And acid beetles. And sprites. And bandits.
Lots and lots of bandits.
Thomas closed his eyes, forcing himself to stay well put.
Long ago, he'd left on a journey once. And he was younger. And without an enchanted weapon that was clearly forged by a legendary swordsmith. Had the situation been anything else, he would have sold half his remaining good furniture for a chance to better admire that blade.
She would do well. He could feel it. Fortune favours the righteous.
Which is why he was currently a barkeeper.
“I'm not your master anymore, boy.”
“And I'm no longer a boy. See these? Mark of a true man, right here.”
The true man, Caban Oxwell, threw out his arms and tensed his muscles. Thomas wasn't sure if it was due to the dim light that he couldn't see anything.
He chose to believe it, anyway.
“It's been too long since I last taught you anything, Caban. You can call me by my name.”
“Sure? If I did that, people would be swarming over you. Villagers don't know who you are yet, do they?”
“They know. I'm the barkeeper.”
Caban laughed. His easy smile and casual demeanour worried Thomas as much now as it did when he'd first taken him in as an apprentice. But then he saw the way the sword belt was buckled, wrapped in the way that an opponent couldn't grapple it, his sword hand never straying from his weapon's pommel. And Thomas relaxed.
“The barkeeper. You can always come back to the fold, you know? There's money. Plenty of it, these days. You taught half the guys in charge how to wield their first sword. You'll get your former rank back, too. There won't be any issues with that. There's even a vacancy open for a guildmaster in Mirantz. If the higher ups knew you were available, I'm sure they'd take you on straight away.”
The speed of Caban's voice betrayed that he'd practised these words. Now Thomas sighed without hiding it.
So after all this time, this was the true reason his former student had dropped by.
“It was never an issue of rank. Nor money, for that matter.”
“The guildmasters know why I left. You'll need to tell them that my conditions haven't changed.”
Caban looked visibly deflated. Thomas frowned. He wore his heart on his sleeve, this one. A little too much. Yet he'd made it this far, and he was sensible when the time came. That's why he'd climbed up the ladder so quickly.
To be a C-rank swordsman and adventurer was a distinguished achievement. He was an expert at the blade and was fit to instruct others. It was greater than the majority of adventurers would ever reach. Many of those who joined with him were still E-rank. Or below.
“Got it. I'll let them know.”
“Thank you.”
“Hey, you know they offered me the chance of a B-rank trial if I could convince you to come back.”
Thomas chuckled. Now he knew it was right not to return.
“They're giving away B-rank trials just to bring me out of retirement? They need to respect the profession more. Sorry, Caban, but I don't think you're at the level of defeating a revenant yet.”
“Neither am I. Oh man, I was sweating at the thought you'd say yes! I wasn't sure how I was gonna turn that down.”
So he said. But Thomas knew that it wasn't the truth. Any adventurer worth their salt would seize any chance at a coveted trial for the upper ranks. Even if it meant leaping on the back of a flying wyvern, this man would be willing to break both his arms in the attempt.
All the more reason not to encourage him.
“So, Master, any reason you're staring off into the night? I can hear your customers moaning from here.”
Thomas knew they'd moan even if he was there. The lasses had it covered, anyway.
“I think I've just been robbed.”
Caban blinked. It took him less than a few heartbeats to dash past Thomas, consternation on his face as he immediately scouted out the road.
“It's fine,” said Thomas, before the young man would start chasing down his horse. With success, too. “I'm looking forward to seeing what she'll achieve with my crowns.”
“A young lady.”
Caban frowned.
“So even young ladies are taking to robbery now, huh? Damn. The capital, maybe. But not here. Times really are tough.”
“They always are.”
“So, you just let her go? Was she alone?”
Thomas nodded, putting aside the feelings of discontent it elicited in him to admit such.
“She was armed.”
And she has Apple. That, more than anything, reassured him.
“It's not the strength of one's weapon that determines victory, but spirit,” said Caban, quoting the words he'd received all those years ago.
“And of that … she had plenty.”
With a final parting glance at the horizon, Thomas turned his full attention on his former student. Only then did he notice something unusual about him.
It'd been over a year since he'd last seen him. Even so, there was something keener about the way he held himself.
Or rather, something old and familiar.
He was seeing the exact same enthusiasm that he'd last seen Caban demonstrate while he was still learning to hold a sword. A long time ago.
“Hmm. Did something happen?”
Caban gave a smile. He patted the pommel of his sword.
“You could say that. I met someone at the Royal Villa who opened my eyes to how weak I was. You taught me well, Master. But I realise I still have a long way to go.”
Thomas nodded. That came as no surprise. The Royal Villa was the personal accommodation of the Contzen household. It was undoubtedly garrisoned by some of the finest knights and warriors that the kingdom had to offer. No doubt the courtyard was teeming with skilled fighters even Thomas in his prime would struggle against.
With that, he indicated towards his humble establishment. Caban's enthusiasm grew even more pronounced.
“... By the way, how's Marina?”
“Fine. Last I heard. 10 years ago.”
“Ouch. If it makes you feel any better, I'll still keep in touch with you.”
For a moment, Thomas almost considered cracking a wry remark at that. Instead, he took it as the earnest comment it was.
“Thank you.”
Turning his back to the wind, he made his way towards his home, filled with jovial louts and merry layabouts.
He hoped that when that young heroine returned, it'd still remain this way.

2023.03.27 03:37 KnightlyVan Thank you for this game.

((I spoil some pretty important stuff, so please stop here if you've yet to play the game completely.))
I'm not one to really speak my mind when it comes to expressing how I feel about any one thing. I tend to keep those thoughts and internalize them without sharing with anyone, save for my significant other. Signalis was a game I'd heard about, and imagined I could have some fun with. I had gotten it on game pass and simply fell in love with it right as I booted it up. ((I also bought it right after, please give me a collectors edition because I will buy that so fast.))
The imagery, the flow and the overall pacing made me feel such a range of emotions that I just had to share these words with you all, it compelled me to, because I think each of you might have felt it as well, in some way shape or form in your journeys with this game.
Signalis is a game that has evolved for me over time. At first playing it felt like I'd been stuck in a world all alone, with people who were constantly facing a constantly worse state of pain, that perhaps they were all in hell and I was stuck with them.
However Signalis was not that, not completely.
As I viewed every piece of dialogue, every note and journal entry, I could feel there was more to the world than utter despair and loneliness. Yes the game wants you to feel lonely, and for me that feeling was the most evident in the train memory. Seeing a girl at the far corner of a train car, looking so alone and helpless, like there was nothing anyone could do for her, dredged up some painful memories of my own when I had been in that sort of situation as a helpless bystander, old wounds had reopened for me. Though it was at this same scene that made me remember all my other fond memories that had come before, and after that. ((My memory works as a sort of movie, each item I own or have made, reminds me of those specific periods in my life including all the associated memories and feelings that go with it.))
Ariane Yeong, might have been the most alone she'd ever been in her life at that very moment we see her, and we the bystander can only watch, but on a subsequent play-through, you realize that its simply an instance in time before she got to meet the person she fell in love with. For every instance Signalis gives you despair, it reminds you that there was love in this universe. That it's love, not an obsession over some vague promise that drives us to the end to find Ariane. Each and every cycle, each failure that begets a new Elster to continue where the last one failed, is punctuated by the fact that none of that matters to Elster herself. Elster is doing this because she loves Ariane that much, and it is those memories that Elster has, that can push her that extra bit every time.
Because Signalis is a game about love, and the desire to regain that connection that was so precious to her, even if it kills her in the end.
Connection is an idea that is abundant in Signalis, that every piece of the story weaves and connects, from the places, planets, to the imagery in tarots or books, to the characters we are shown. That in the darkest moments of despair the Eules in their dorm had banded together ((in a quarantine, no need to point out the obvious.)) to try and keep their spirits up with song and dance. ((though it should be noted that this is followed by destruction of their beloved player and subsequent collapse of that whole place.)) That kind of writing can't feasibly happen in a world that Signalis wants us to believe is as completely totalitarian, cold and ruthless as they claim. Connection is what brings you back to Rot-Front, the place where Ariane and Isa had known each other, even if in passing, but where countless small instances of precious memories were formed, even the painful ones.
It's why I believe the artifact ending to be the true ending to this game. That even at the end of a terrible world on the verge of death, having died or currently dying, we can dance with Ariane, not in service of some vague promise to dance with her. The physical act doesn't matter, but to finally be able to connect with Ariane with a heart full of love, not of regret, that they are happy that they can be reunited, recognizing one another as the person they love, even in the ruins of a ship, stranded on whatever hell they might be in. And that's okay, because no matter the obstacles in our life, even if we are stuck in hell in an eternal loop, the love we've experienced in the past, the memories we've obtained and the ones we can still make, are all endurable, so long as we have the people we've loved, even if they've long since passed.
(The keys of love, sacrifice and eternity, all tell the story on a macro level. That love guided us here those dear feelings of ours, the pain we endured as our sacrifice that pain is a memory in itself and an important one that helps us distinguish the good from the bad, and eternity, that we know this road we all walk on is destined for heartbreak at the end. Because life is like that, but it's because of the love we experience that we can be happy at all, to be able to make connections, because those things are still precious even if they have a sad end or end up restarting the cycle anew.)
I've never fallen so hard and so fast for a game like this in my life. I've always taken time to analyze and understand a game that I feel was worth it. To understand each and every complex thought that went into it and make it a part of myself. I couldn't do that with Signalis, because it was a game of feelings, and the one I felt most strongly after getting through the haze of pain, was love, and it was because Signalis reminded me of all the other things that had made me happy in the first place that I can love Signalis.
It's taken some time but I hope these thoughts can be appreciated by someone. If not the developers of this game, then by someone who can understand my crazy ramblings here. If you do, then I hope you know, you'll never be alone, that every person who has experienced and loved this game, are people who share something in common with you, it's our own special connection, and I will keep that one in my heart for you, even if I don't know you.
This subreddit, I think is filled with people who equally despaired at the endings we were given at first, who then were able to lick each others wounds and bring ourselves up, with each others presence here. We didn't let the pain get one over on us, and I hope that each silly meme, beautiful animation, artwork or someones heartfelt words, will help you out of that pit you might be in as we've been there as well, that maybe this game can help you come to terms with some old pains, and appreciate the love you have had in your life.
((Thanks again if you read this far. I'm sorry that this was so long, I would write more, but then it'd be a short book.))

2023.03.27 03:14 Manmos10 D&D [5E] Pirate Themed Campaign [Online]

You are the scum of the sea you filthy dog. You have nothing but a dull blade or a jammed flintlock, and the clothes on your back... will you go down in history as a legendary pirate, or die a worthless piece of trash.
Hi, I am a forever DM and I am looking for a group of players to join for my newest campaign. It is pirate themes so lots of ocean travelling, considering making it into a little podcast of sorts for fun if the players are cool with it.
This campaign has been in the works for a bit over 2 years now, with lots of homebrew options, and fun stuff for players to mess around with. The campaign being pirate themed, a lot of sea systems such as sea combat on ships, ship to ship raiding, ocean travel being interactive and skill based, ship customization, survival elements, and plenty more for the players to mess with and use to their liking. Levels 1-20. All characters start with basically nothing, and yes that includes no spells.
I look forward to speaking with all of you to find the perfect band of pirates to sail the high seas with.
As for time of day and days played, I am open to all times, so I put the group together and find a time that works for all.
The salty smell of the sea, ever so pungent. A trade vessel, on its way to the Eastern Kingdoms suddenly runs into a marine ship. Expecting a normal stop and check, the crew goes ahead and drops the anchor. A cannon fires But what was that sound? The captain of the trade ship: Everyone to the lower decks, we are taking direct fire! Panic starts among the ships crew, and the passengers, children are in tears from the loud shots heard from the cannons The Marines continue firing even though the crew and passengers are waving, signaling, screaming begging for them to stop. Most of the crew down in the bottom of the ship are nothing but cold lifeless corpses from the direct fire and shrapnel, all in the effort to patch up the ship. The ship starts slowly sinking. Getting ever closer to being fully submerge. Most of the people still alive are grabbing onto floating scraps of wood and metal for dear life. The Marines took an oath to protect, so why in the world did they fire at them? They left without a second glance as if nothing happened. Corpses littered in the water, becoming nothing more than fish food, driving ever closer to Davey Jones locker. The all fainted while in the water from exhaustion after trying to stay above water for over 8 hours. The crew and remaining survivors wake up on a deserted island, somewhere in the eastern Kingdoms border from their best guess.
DM me if you are interested and please be interesting in the introduction. We are doing this Americas got talent style, so do not be boring if you want a shot of joining.
Discord: Simpster#5953
As a side note, this campaign is going to be super long... probably longer than a year of regular sessions. I have over 5 and 1/2 notebooks filled with writing, images, notes, and stat blocks. This has been in the works for quite a while. is the map I made for the campaign.
