Librairie pour reddit

## Warning: le package 'RedditExtractoR' a été compilé avec la version R 4.1.3


La librairie possède une série de fonctions assez utiles pour collecter des données.

Liste des fonctions

Dans cette librairie, il y a 4 fonctions que nous allons présenter.

# Permet de voir toutes les fonctions d'un package
## [1] "find_subreddits"    "find_thread_urls"   "get_thread_content"
## [4] "get_user_content"


Cette première fonction permet d’obtenir les liens de tous les fils qui ont parlé d’un terme spécifique. Par exemple nous pouvons récupérer les liens de discussions qui mentionnent le terme “text mining” dans la semaine:

# Mise à jour en date du 08.04.2022

  find_thread_urls(keywords = "text_mining",
                   period = "week")

TLDR at the end, apologies for the length!\n\nA few months ago I set out on a mission to complete as many Final Fantasy games as I could from start to completion. I completed Final Fantasy 1, [which you can read here](https://www.reddit.com/r/FinalFantasy/comments/qp2y51/im_playing_the_final_fantasy_games_from_115_to/) if you're a glutton for punishment.\n\nUnfortunately, a lot has happened since then but I recently caught covid (I'm ok!) so had a week's downtime to play through Final Fantasy 2! Before I start let me point out that this is the *actual* Final Fantasy 2. As I'm sure most people are aware, the original Final Fantasy 2 and 3 weren't released outside of Japan until the early/mid-2000s, despite being released in Japan in the late 1980s/early 1990s. The Final Fantasy 2 that was released internationally was actually Final Fantasy 4, re-packaged as number 2. Anyway, history lesson aside, here are my views on it.\n\nUgh, this game is so frustrating! Some of the frustration comes through playing it on a broken down PSP that decides it wants to continuously freeze up, some of it comes from the game itself. Obviously, I played it on PSP as this was the version recommended to me. Just like Final Fantasy 1, it's a port of the GBA re-release and includes the Soul of Rebirth added content (please don't expect too much on that, I'll explain in due course).\n\nFF2 is often considered to be the worst of the series so I went in with low expectations, I really, really wanted to dislike it and it's there that the frustrations come to fruition. At times I did hate it, I wasn't having fun, especially in the early game. However, I grew to genuinely love it eventually, quirks and all.\n\nLet's start with how it looks and sounds before I try to unpick how it plays. I have to be honest, I didn't play the NES original as I understand zero Japanese, I'm sure there are emulated versions with fan-made translations but I have a PSP and I'm lazy. I've seen some screenshots and video play of the NES version and it's honestly similar, but improved compared to the first. The PSP version as you'd expect is a massive step up and looks great. I love the pixelesque aesthetic and the maps are a faithful recreation of the originals. The music and sounds are top-notch in the PSP version and although simple, stand up well, even today.\n\nGameplay, here we go, where to start? In the original FF1, you get to pick your party, name them and make up the party however you wish. That's gone in FF2, you have the much more familiar preset party, but even though they're preset you can use the game's unique levelling system to mould the party as you see fit throughout the game. The levelling system is what makes FF2 stand out. Gone are the traditional kill a certain amount of enemies, earn a certain amount of EXP points, get a numbered level and your stats are automatically levelled. There also isn't a customisable stat set per se, it's a weird hybrid mash-up. Essentially the way it works is that the more you use a skill/weapon/spell the better at it you get. Keep getting battered into low health? Your overall HP will rise quicker, keep using the cure spell regularly? You'll have a much higher levelled skill by the end game, fighting a low accuracy enemy who misses a lot? You're gonna get a boost to your evasion stats. It makes more sense when you're playing, but unfortunately, the system is a bit...broken. It's open to exploitation by attacking and healing your own characters when in lower level fights to boost the stats you want to be boosted (I genuinely didn't do this) and can make the game far too easy. All in all though, the stats even out to your particular style of play. I ended up with hard-hitting melee characters with strong heal spells and just *ok* white/dark magic skills.\n\nThe world is a very early example of an open world. Once you're out of the very early stages you're free to go to where you want, provided you can get there. The map felt much bigger than in Final Fantasy 1, but obviously in comparison to more modern titles, is tiny. There's a good variety of different biomes and landscapes to visit, but one of my biggest complaints is the dungeons, a lot of them felt far too labyrinth-like and unless you're using a guide you're going to get lost in dead ends. The biggest annoyance for me though is the random encounters in said dungeons. There are ***so many*** random encounters, at times it's every 3 steps. Great for rounding out those stats that you're using a lot, not so great when you're in the last dungeon that has ***16 (sixteen!)*** floors. Make sure you've stocked up before you hit the last dungeon because those 16 levels have dead-ends and empty rooms aplenty and hundreds of encounters. I think it may well have taken me over 3 hours to finish the last dungeon and I had to teleport out, restock, heal up to make sure I had enough to take on the final boss and then start again at least twice, but then maybe I was too low level when I went in. I definitely wasn't by the end! Another thing that really bugged me was the attack inconsistancies, particularly in the mid-game, sometimes I'd hit for 12 damage the next attack on the same enemy would hit for 200. By the end of the game as I got my strength and accuracy up this had evened out and I was consistently hitting for 2,000+ against standard enemies. Despite my gripes though, as I was heading through the game I noticed that I'd gone from being irritated to actually having fun. When it's wonky, the game's *really* wonky but when it's working properly, it's pretty good! The difficulty and learning curve is just right, that's one part I enjoyed. When I first hit a new dungeon I'd feel weak and underpowered. As my skills improved and I picked up a few new weapons I managed to survive a little easier and by the dungeon boss, I was cutting through enemies with relative ease, as it should be. In FF1 I didn't get one game over, but I definitely got a few here, as I was learning the new skills, new levelling system and getting to grips with how it worked. Even at the end-game, I got hit with a few curve balls which forced me out of my standard way of playing to try new things and experiment.\n\nThe story is a massive step up from FF1, there's a simple but clear narrative. Evil Emporer raging war against the world, kidnapped princess and a journey to hell. Knowing your next objective is much more straight forward and it just makes sense. It's a simple and cliched story but it's there, you don't need to find random NPCs nearly as much although it's worth doing as they'll often tell you more about where you're going. The pacing is a bit off at times though, in one instance I'd spent a good 2 hours following a quest line, wrapped it up and started the next which lasted about 15 minutes and left me feeling I'd missed something out.\n\nIntertwined with the story is the keyword system. This really grated on me to begin with and I hated it, but as I got used to it I warmed to it, to a degree. I still don't love it. Essentially certain keywords will appear red in the text and you can learn that word and then ask for more info, go to another NPC and ask them about it or at times just guess. I started off missing one or two which was really frustrating as you can't progress the story without saying them in some cases, but as the story progresses it becomes much more logical. I mean what kind of world are we in where you can't go to a town until you've mentioned a keyword about it first?\n\nIn essence, this is a simple story of good vs evil (basically Star Wars) with some overly complicated levelling system and story progression keyword system. It's like the devs finished the game and thought, this is too simple, how can we make this more *different*. As I said before, sometimes it works, sometimes, not so much.\n\nThe Soul of Rebirth content is something I didn't really get to try out too much. In the main story, you have 3 core party members and a revolving cast that dip in and out and make up the 4th party member. It's up to you to equip the revolving party member and after I had one temporary party member die as part of the storyline, taking my items with them, I made a point to keep the next ones less well equipped and if I could tell they would be leaving I'd unequip them completely. That's the issue with Soul of Rebirth. It includes those revolving party members as a separate storyline taking place in line with the main storyline. The problem is, the characters in SoR use the weapons you gave them when they left your party, all of mine were unequipped or underpowered and the prospect of doing it all again from scratch was too much. SoR might be amazing but I imagine it's more of the same.\n\nI can understand why FF2 is so derided by fans of the series. It's certainly flawed but is it awful? It's not terrible by any stretch, it has its high points but unfortunately, the low points often outweigh them. It wasn't until the late game that I really got into the swing of it and started to enjoy it more. As you can tell by the length of this post, there's a lot to unpack, although the story is simple enough, the game itself is much more complex. It took me a total of 20 hours to finish the main story and that's without the SoR content, if it's what I've read about I can imagine at least another 10 hours to play through it. Still, for a game from 1988, I think 20 hours is pretty impressive!\n\nSo now to rank it, I genuinely want to put it level with FF1, it doesn't always reach its ambitions and tries to add new things that don't always work, but the story is much better and the general feel of it is more structured and polished. That feels like a cop-out though so I'll say:\n\n&amp;#x200B;\n\n1. Final Fantasy 1\n2. Final Fantasy 2 (but only just)\n\n&amp;#x200B;\n\nTL;DR - A flawed game, with more scope and ambition than Final Fantasy 1, it sometimes tries to overcomplicate things and sometimes this falls flat on its face. A nice, simple story that's a little cliche but much clearer than its predecessor. Does it deserve the bad reputation it has? In my opinion, no, I had fun with most of it!

their own the day after a major district test, they then took pictures of the answers (all the test they stole where from almost and straight A students) and then speed these pictures through Snapchat. The reason they where able to stew all these texts was because that day there was a substitute teacher and they took advantage of her lack of knowledge of names, faces and ect. This caused a massive panic among the district because since no one confessed they had no idea of how far the pictures went, keep in mind that this was again a major test that counted for a large part of thousands of students grades. The school contacted the districts office and the effect of just 2-3 kids caused the entire school district to have to scrap and retake the test. This effected kids in both middle school and high school who where part of algebra 1, this just really pissed me off due to the fact that I was struggling in this class before hand and now have to redo a test that could have changed that. \n\nPs: the main teacher who was in charge of that class was out for that one day due to unknown reasons.
## Anyone else have really strict parents?

Basically have really strict family myself. I\031m 15 and have never been anywhere aside from school without them. Ive never gone anywhere alone, never done anything by with friends outside of school, never gone to someone else\031s house or had anyone come to mine, not allowed to text or call people, no social media& I feel disconnected from people I know and am friends with both literally and more emotionally. I think it\031s made me more shut off from people too. Curious how those with strict parents deal with it and how strict are your parents?
## My gut instincts went haywire about a past employer when I met them resulting in 2 or 3 years of severe anxiety due to it.

This might be a long post and might not even be the right place to post this. But I need help making sense of something I am not sure of at all. I need mental clarity desperately.\n\nI'm based in south Asia and right after graduating college, I got a job at a mid level company (in south asian context this means around 80-120 people) as a software developer.\n\nNow, the software industry in south asia relies on a lot of remote/outsourced and freelance work. The owner of my company however went one step further.  He happens to have a U.S dual citizenship so what he would do is get hired as a contractor to American companies and startups by himself but would essentially send all of the details of the code and access to it to us back in south asia where we would have to impersonate the owner of the company to hi colleagues and do all the coding and communication via text. He would only attend meetings where he had to show his face and we would prep him before those.\n\nThe first time I met this person, I didn't really care much as I was just focused on getting my work done and getting paid. But for some reason, he started taking a keen interest in me and tried to be a bit extra friendly to me. I took that as a complement that the boss was really cool and all. He even helped me by assigning me to a project with a friend of his who worked for one of the biggest tech companies in the US.\n\nNow, that project kind of ended and the next time I met him (after six months after my first encounter as he had gone back to the US), I ended up meeting him again, and I kid you not. My gut instincts went bat shit crazy. I am not joking when I tell you that I literally froze and became a statue when he approached me. This has never ever happened to me before to this level. It felt almost supernatural. Please believe me that I am not lying to you about how severely something felt really really wrong to me.\n\nI obviously did not have clues or context as to why this was the case. I kept overthinking about this and assumed it might have been that I did something wrong on the project when i worked for his friend.\n\nSo I sent my boss a text asking him for more details about why the project ended abruptly and if I had done something wrong. Frankly, my gut instincts were going so off on such little context with regards to this person that I did not know what to do. and needed to see if maybe talking with him directly would help ease this weird feeling.\n\nBut everything went wrong after this. The boss literally started going out of his way to completely avoid me from the day I sent him the text message. \n\nHe would still text me about meeting up with me but in person, he would completely avoid me. the feeling was also not going away but I was struck with the strangest kind of shock I have never felt in my life.\n\nAt this point, I started getting suspicious that he was spying on my through my phone.\n\nI once talked about a book to a friend of mine, and I noticed he posted a picture of himself holding the same book literally the next day.\n\nSimilarly, I shit talked about his behavior and everything I was experiencing to my friend as well and I just feel that he somehow overheard our conversation.\n\nSImilarly, I noticed some of his friends who are also super senior and big in the local tech scene who I had never ever met before but I had visited their linkedin profiles as they are famous also ended up blocking me after I visited their linkedin profile ( I have it set to private so they shouldnt know who exactly looked them up plus they don't even know who I am). I can imagine he might have informed them that this guy is a threat or something.\n\nSo based on all this context, is it possible for him to have somehow access to my privacy and why I was getting such an off feeling about this dude?

everyone, I\031m a bit confused and looking for some advice. \n\nWithin the last month I\031ve discovered I am (I think) avoidant. The issue is with the relationship I\031m currently in. \n\nWith my last relationship, which I think is a large part of why I am avoidant, I wasn\031t into the guy for the better part of a year a tried it convince myself I was because he was \034right\035. This led to a deep resentment of him because I essentially forced myself to stay with someone I wasn\031t truly into, thinking the honeymoon phase was just ending. This has created a deep doubting of my own judgment within relationships. \n\nI have been seeing someone for around a month and a half. We\031ve been on multiple dates, I have the very classic \034switch between hot and cold\035 with him that avoidants feel. \n\nThe issue is I do not think I\031m overly physically attracted to him and I don\031t see this changing. He is not an unattractive guy, I just never find myself having any desire to have any physical contact with him whatsoever \024 even to the point of it making me uncomfortable. He is great and I have talked about my need for independence with him. I just don\031t know if I\031m not feeling romantic feelings/attracted to him, or if this is avoidant behavior kicking in. \n\nThanks for any input!\n\nUPDATE: He could sense things were off after our date last night which doesn\031t surprise me as he\031s very perceptive. I couldn\031t talk until tonight due to prior commitments today. Instead of giving me space today (he knew what I was doing and that I was busy) he sent increasingly upset texts throughout the day, ignoring me telling him to please just wait until we could chat tonight. I just wanted to have an honest conversation with him that I don\031t think I was feeling what I needed to for this go to forward. On our call he proceeded to tell me I have \034a lot of trauma and baggage\035 and \034he was just trying to help\035. That was off putting to hear, especially as I understand what triggers me in relationships and I know a lot of that needs to be worked on outside of a relationship (hence, ending things here). I know I have things I can work on, but we all do. I was just very open about mine. His wording was hurtful. \n\nWe\031ve been on 4 true dates, hung out casually a couple times outside of that, all in all have been talking for around 1-1.5 months. I had opened up to him and been very upfront about my avoidant tendencies, never trying to deceive him. He reassured me it\031s okay to not know 100% right in the beginning. I felt like I was having to apologize for realizing I didn\031t think I was feeling what I needed to be feeling for this to go further \024 I apologized countless times on the call and it didn\031t matter. There was a lot of him taking a victim role throughout the day, which I didn\031t appreciate. I hadn\031t seen any of this side of him until today. \n\nGiven how things happened today, I think this may have been for the best. I never meant to hurt him but the feeling just wasn\031t there for me. Thanks for your input, everyone!

We know the risks of matrimony. She seems to believe that marriage will just happen if we date long enough. I have been firm and she has not mentioned for awhile. However, yesterday she said that she was going to marry me someday in a text.\n\nShe also wants kids, but I'm not willing to risk a disabled child given her age and also mine. \n\nThe sex is good and we agree on what food to eat. We both don't drink. Good match.\n\nDoes she get it? Do I need to keep reminding her that we're not getting married or marred?

Not much space for much else, less I start earning a higher living to make some. I\031d have to graduate and hope for a decent job first. It was also limited to two colors: beige and beig-*er*. \n\nThere wasn\031t much decor to add any extra life to my closet of a room, but the few things I did have, including a couple of movie posters on the wall (*Star Wars, The Matrix, The Puppet Master, Tron)* and my LED lights, currently unlit, taped up in the corners of the walls, were crucial in ensuring that I didn\031t go mad in this place. Jeff\031s uncle\031s place was a paradise resort compared to this. The toilet hasn\031t given me or my roommate any trouble lately, though, it still gets stopped up from time to time, and we had a gas leak scare the other month, which thankfully, we ended up calling maintenance to get that taken care of in no time before it turned into something much worse. Other than that, it was a competent living space; it served its purpose.\n\nI stared at the row of mediums on my laptop I\031d created in just the span of a few days. Then at the generated poster for *Chaos TV!* It was a colorful array of selections, each poster with its unique tone and semblance in its respective genre, each with countless famous A-listers most would recognize at a glance, and some more under the radar. With my profile having been created under \030Confined Reality\031 settings, I couldn\031t recreate new mediums starring the rest of the gang, according to the principles Fe explained, and I can\031t go backward in time if the reality created on my profile contradicts the given medium I wish to create. \n\nI clicked on the + symbol in the corner of the screen, indicating for the user to create a new medium. The options to either upload from the library of thousands of films to select from Neptune, upload from my Cloud, or upload a script of my own appeared in the dropdown selection. There was also the option to mix these options up to allow for more flexibility. I chose to pick a movie from the selection and one of my creations. \n\nSure, I couldn\031t reuse my dead friends - sorry, at least, \034dead\035 in the Neptune program - but characters - the essence, manifestation of their personalities - don\031t exactly die, do they? Actors replace other actors all the time, sometimes taking on the exact same role. Hell, actors even get awards for playing other actors all the time in biopics. Why couldn\031t this be any different?\n\nI decided to merge *Chaos TV!* with the 1985\031s murder mystery-comedy *Clue*. The actual plot of *Clue* would play out nearly the same, except the catch was that the gang and I - Jeff, Amy, Kelly, and Mile - would be the stars& played by different actors. If I can\031t use their actual selves, then I\031d have to replace them with people who could embody their personas down to a T. \n\nFrank included. \n\nHe had to be there. He\031d become a part of the crew at this point, whether we liked it or not. The man of mystery himself seemed involved in every aspect of our on-screen lives, and I needed him to fall for the bait still. I needed to know if he\031d still go through with it. I needed to know, in a room full of dinner guests, with bodies dropping left and right, fingers pointing at such-and-such, that somehow, he\031d be behind it all&\n\nFrank would be played by, well, whoever Frank has been played by this entire time. He was still unidentified. So in the script, I decided to have each character\031s name flash across the screen when introduced, accompanied by their actors\031 real names. Mine would say, \034*Anthony Prescott as Anthony,\035* and then Venus Monroe (a famous actress and prominent sex symbol) as Amy. \n\nNo, that felt so wrong. Let me cast her as Kelly instead. But even that was weird&\n\nFuck it, Anthony. Just fill their spots in. That\031s all I had to do. \n\nAfter I got everything set, there was the moment of truth - would it even generate? I clicked to find out. Across the screen, a box popped up with the message:\n\n*Casting Error:* \n\n*The selected actor \030Frank\031 as \030Frank\031 is not recognized. Please select another actor.*\n\n\034Come the fuck on,\035 I groaned. \n\nApparently, Neptune can cast whoever the hell it wants with no warning, no additional information whatsoever, not even as much as a first and last name, but when I turn around and try and cast someone *it* put in place *itself,* suddenly, I\031m full of shit. Goodness&\n\nSo I can\031t use Frank&\n\nCould I use another actor to play Frank? Guess that\031s the only reasonable option. I picked a random actor I\031m sure nobody\031s ever heard of - no offense to them - then tried again.\n\n*Continuity Error:*\n\n*The character \030Frank\031 interferes with the continuity of this user\031s profile. Please select either a different actor or character.*\n\nI was at a loss. What the hell does that even mean? Frank all of sudden doesn\031t exist? Did he ever exist? He had to in order to be a part of the first season of *Chaos TV!* There\031s no way he\031s just some sort& wait.\n\nThe thought brushed over me a few times since testing out the mediums, but I believed it was too farfetched for me to really concur. However, now it\031s starting to persistently tap my shoulder, begging the question; was Frank even a real person? Was he just a background character generated by the program, replicated to look almost like an actual person, an attestation to just how realistic it could be and how far we\031ve come in technology?\n\nCould be a stretch, but it was a working theory&\n\nI decided to scrap the character of Frank entirely, and just use myself and the original gang. Though, I didn\031t really see the point in what I was doing now. With Frank gone, this was practically meaningless. But who knows. So far, the program did things on its own that didn\031t add up yet. Maybe it would give us more clues to work with (no pun intended).\n\nTime to test this one out. I clicked \030Generate New Medium\031 and watched as the loading symbol swirled on the screen. This time, a pop-up message box didn\031t intrude, but instead, a box giving me the download time followed, as it did with the many others I made. Finally, a breakthrough.\n\nThen I looked at the time left for it to generate.\n\n*21 hours and 47 minutes*\n\nYou\031ve gotta be kidding me. That long? It never takes that long for a 90-minute feature to generate, let alone a two-hour one. I threw my head back against the bedboard and let out the heaviest sigh. I suppose I could take a nap or watch something else in the meantime. Could probably look back over reruns of *Chaos TV!* to search for more clues we might\031ve missed, though, I think Jeff or one of the others was on that already.\n\n*The Jetsons* doorbell chime sounded from my phone, and I picked it up to see who just texted me. I froze once I read it. It was from Amy.\n\n*Hey, can you come over?*\n\nMy heartbeat just shot up. Did she mean to send that to me? That was a first.\n\n\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\n\nSimilar to how Jeff stayed with his uncle, Amy was fortunate enough to live with her aunt. I don\031t entirely remember what she said her aunt did for a living, but I believe it had something to do with sales. Amy said she didn\031t have to worry about sharing the rent - must be nice. \n\nI rang the doorbell and was greeted by Amy\031s aunt herself. \n\n\034Hi, you must be Anthony,\035 she delightfully greeted with a big smile. \034I\031m Victoria.\035\n\nShe extended her hand for me to shake, which I did without hesitation. Her kindness felt contagious.\n\n\034It\031s nice to meet you, Victoria,\035 I returned.\n\n\034Please, come in,\035 she insisted.\n\nOf course, the house was very well-decorated on the interior and very clean. It was a complete 180 from my place, mainly speaking for my roommate\031s section, which unfortunately included the kitchen and living area at times. \n\n\034Amy\031s just upstairs,\035 Victoria informed. \034Right after you go up, take a right into the hallway and she\031ll be in the room just across.\035\n\n\034Okay, thank you,\035 I replied.\n\n\034Also, I\031m making dinner. It should be done in about an hour. If you\031d like to stay for that, you\031re more than welcome.\035\n\nAny college student would be dumb to turn down a free meal any day, first and foremost, but I also couldn\031t refuse just for Victoria\031s hospitality alone. \n\n\034Sure, yeah, that would be nice actually,\035 I accepted.\n\n\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\\_\n\nAcross the hall, Amy\031s door was left wide open, and I could already tell from a distance that it was her room from the plastered boy band, anime, and girl pop star posters along the wall. I stepped in, lightly knocking on the side of the wall.\n\n\034Permission to come aboard?\035 I humored.\n\nIn the corner of the room next to the window, Amy sat at her desktop computer table, stacked with all sorts of books and accessories, decorated in a full spectrum of pink, purple, white, and green. \n\nShe turned to face me, glasses over her face. Gosh, she looked even prettier with her glasses, in my opinion, but pretty regardless.\n\n\034Permission granted,\035 she chortled. \034Here, come look at this.\035\n\nAs I walked over to her side, I could already see Neptune pulled up, as well as some minimized boxes layered across the monitor. I took a seat on a cushioned stool she left for me at her side.\n\n\034I was looking over the last episode we made of your show - *our* show - like crazy since it happened, and I took some notes.\035\n\n\034What did you find?\035 I asked.\n\nShe shook her head. \034All sorts of shit. Things I\031m not even sure make sense, but none of it really does, I guess.\035\n\nI glanced at her notebook left on the desk to the side, full of random questions and theories written in no particular order, arrows pointing diagonally here and there. It was amazingly in-depth, more than the notes I take in class. No wonder her grades were better than mine.\n\n*Why is Frank so distant from us?*\n\n*Why is* *~~he cold~~* *does he have a cold stare?*\n\n*Why does it all end in death?*\n\n*What\031s with this theme of death?*\n\nAnd there were countless more questions with various lines pointing in other directions across the paper.\n\n\034I suppose if I took notes as good as these, I\031d finally get a B-average in math,\035 I dryly humored.\n\n\034I could help you with that,\035 Amy commented, simultaneously clicking and typing to pull up whatever it was she intended to show me.\n\n\034Yeah?\035\n\n\034Of course. Why not?\035\n\nYeah& why not?\n\n\034Here, take a look at these,\035 she pointed at the screen.\n\nAmy\031s Neptune dashboard was left open for me to see, her own list of mediums on full display. Some of them looked familiar, like the rom-coms and *Magic Mike*, but there were a few other new mediums that I guess you could say were& *fascinating*.\n\n\034Is that you in the cover of *The Fault In Our Stars*?\035 I pointed out.\n\nAmy sighed, \034Yes.\035\n\n\034Is that-\035\n\n\034Yes, that\031s *The Notebook* as well. That\031s not what I\031m talking about.\035 \n\nAmy moved her finger more precisely towards a row of movies and TV shows she created that I was all too familiar with, starring us - her, Jeff, Miles, Kelly, and I - as the main leads. They consisted of recreations of *Final Destination, Scooby-Doo, The Breakfast Club, The Thing,* and *Ferris Bueller\031s Day Off*.\n\n\034You made more mediums,\035 I said.\n\n\034Right,\035 she confirmed. \034I chose these ones in particular since they all involve a gang of people sort of? All of them except *Ferris Bueller*. I wanted to throw one in there that didn\031t involve a murder plot and was something entirely innocent to see if the Neptune program would still deviate from the main plot.\035\n\n\034I don\031t remember a murder plot in *The Breakfast Club* either.\035\n\n\034There isn\031t, I just picked it since it\031s, ya know, a \030team\031 movie, if that makes sense?\035\n\n\034Okay. You wanna see if they end in a similar outcome as-\035\n\n\034*Chaos TV!*, exactly.\035\n\nLittle did she know, I had the exact same idea and had already started running the experiment on my own, except mine would apparently take all day.\n\n\034So what did you find?\035 I asked.\n\n\034Well, why don\031t you take a look,\035 she answered. \n\nBetter to see it with my own two eyes, I supposed. \n\nShe first clicked on *Final Destination*, more specifically *Final Destination 1*, where the plane crashes at the beginning of the movie and the survivors that were meant to board Flight 180 one-by-one get offed by the invisible force of none other than death itself.\n\nThe rest of the gang and I were the overall stars of the medium, but the central characters were, of course, Amy and I. Perhaps this was intentional on Amy\031s part in the initial casting phase of generating the medium or selected by the program itself.\n\n\034We\031re not gonna watch the whole thing, but just pay attention to these scenes,\035 Amy said, as she moved the cursor over the timeline bar, clicking and jumping us to later scenes in the film.\n\nParticularly, all the death scenes.\n\nThe first on-screen death was Miles. In the actual movie, the character Tod ended up hanging himself in the shower due to a list of ridiculous, \034unusual\035 circumstances. We didn\031t watch the whole thing. No one wants to see their friends get murdered or killed right in front of them, even if it wasn\031t real. Knowing how Neptune was, based on recent mediums, something much more malignant was at play here.\n\nAmy clicked a few times over a specific region of the timeline, trying to jump to the right shot.\n\n\034Here,\035 she said, once she was satisfied.\n\nFor a brief second, the camera pans away from the bathroom window towards a shot of Miles choking and gasping for air as the clothesline coils tightly around his neck, his eyes bulging red.\n\nI start to turn my head to look away from the grotesque image. Thankfully, Amy quickly paused it.\n\n\034Did you notice anything slightly off?\035 Amy said.\n\nWas she joking?\n\n\034No, not at all,\035 I sarcastically remarked.\n\n\034Not the hanging part, but just before the camera moves over.\035 Amy rewinds the clip for me to see again. \034Look, pay attention to the window.\035\n\nI lean forward some more and squint my eyes, focusing hard on finding whatever it is I was supposed to be looking for. From the angle of the medium shot, the frame only captures just a little over half of the entire window, the rest of it not being able to fit onto the screen right before it pans over to the shower. \n\n\034Wait, go back,\035 I say.  \n\nShe does so, and this time, I can see make out the blurred shape of someone standing outside the window, engulfed in the darkness of the night, which is when the scene takes place.\n\n\034You see it now?\035 Amy asks.\n\n\034Yeah& it\031s a person,\035 I concur.\n\n\034Any idea as to who it might be? \030Cause I do.\035\n\nLeaning forward some more, I do my best to try and get a clearer look at their face or any sort of distinct features. I could tell they were a Caucasian male, that\031s about it.\n\n\034You have your glasses, I don\031t,\035 I commented.\n\nAmy traced her finger along the monitor over the top of the figure\031s head region.\n\n\034Here, see, there\031s an outline of a beanie,\035 she noted. \034And if you look really hard, you can see that they\031re wearing what looks like a zipped-up jacket.\035\n\nMy stomach dropped at the realization.\n\n\034Frank,\035 I spoke in a low tone, perhaps even fearful.\n\n\034There\031s no denying it\031s him, and I didn\031t even cast him myself in the medium,\035 Amy pointed out.\n\nShe then jumped across to the next death scene, Kelly\031s. In the actual movie, this scene, as horrifying as it would be in real life, was undisputedly hilarious across all boards. The character Terry in the movie is in an argument with the rest of the group about moving on from the near-death experience of almost boarding the plane at the beginning of the movie, and when she heatedly walks off, telling them that they can just, \034*Drop fucking dead*,\035 she then proceeds to get hit by a bus in a fraction of a second. Takes me out every time, but that\031s beside the point.\n\nThis time, it was less funny, considering it was Kelly that fell victim to death\031s plan in the movie, but Amy shook her head, letting out a light scoff.\n\n\034This shit is so ridiculous,\035 she commented, apparently finding the scene just as silly as I did.\n\n\034Right?\035 I agreed.\n\n\034But did you notice anything else in the background?\035\n\nAnother hidden message? No, I surely didn\031t. She rewound the clip just about ten seconds before Kelly actually gets hit by the bus. My eyes began shifting in all sorts of crazy directions, looking for any sort of small clue or detail I would\031ve otherwise paid little to no attention to.\n\nThere were buildings, obviously set designs likely from Universal or Warner Bros. Studios, there were a few construction workers in the background working on part of the road, a few parked cars on the curb. I wasn\031t sure exactly what I was missing& right up until I saw it.\n\nJust before the shot in which Kelly begins stepping back into the road, far in the background, so brief that if I blinked I\031da missed it, I can see a person walking down the avenue, dressed in a zipped-up hoodie, beanie, washed-out jeans, and Chucks. \n\n\034He\031s there again,\035 I shook my head in disbelief. \034He\031s always there.\035\n\nAmy jumped to the next clip of Val, a.k.a Ms. Lewton\031s insane death in the movie, this time portrayed by Jeff\031s uncle, surprisingly.\n\n\034Did you cast his uncle yourself?\035 I questioned.\n\n\034No,\035 Amy answered. I believed her, too.\n\nThe chaotic chain of events leads to Jeff\031s Uncle Chris\031s house catching on fire and ultimately exploding after I tried to save him on-screen. Outside, Jeff watches the whole thing unfold in horror. God, it was a bit too real, from the casting of real people we knew to the impressive, realistic acting. \n\nI then remembered the experiment we did with breaking the fourth wall and making the cast improvise their lines on the fly. It brought up an interesting point; could they really be making thoughts of their own, living in their own bubble of existence through our small computer screens? If so, the overwhelmingly morbid, terrifying thought of the countless mediums we collectively generated being pocket dimensions of actors being forever trapped in a pandemonium of our own making made my skin crawl and my head spin.\n\nIt\031s important to note that after watching all of the other death scenes, with Jeff finding himself hidden in the background of every single one, all the way to the end of the movie, Amy and I were the only last two survivors. That was& interesting, to say the least.\n\n\034Well, we lived,\035 I shrugged, trying to find some humor in it all.\n\n\034Yeah, but why us?\035 Amy pondered. \034And why is Frank putting himself in the picture when uncalled for?\035\n\nI shrugged, my eyes indiscriminately pointed around the room as I tried to come up with some sort of answer, even if a half-assed one. \n\n\034Guess you care a lot about me, huh, Anthony?\035 Amy suddenly spoke.\n\n\034Huh?\035 I quickly responded, thrown off guard.\n\nAmy chuckled. \034I\031m just messing around,\035 she assured. \034I figured I must mean a lot to be able to make it all the way through the end of a horror movie with you in it.\035\n\nHowever, my wit wasn\031t up to par with hers, so I didn\031t catch on in time to the fact that she was either joking or even half-joking.\n\n\034I-I care about all of you,\035 I defended. \034Yeah, of course you, too, but all of you.\035\n\nAmy smiled. \034Yeah& but they didn\031t all make it in the end.\035\n\nThe vibration of my escalating heartbeat rang throughout my body as sweat began forming in my palms. \n\n\034Here, let me show you the next medium I made,\035 Amy thankfully moved on. \n\nYeah, I did care about her, though. A lot. \n\nA whole lot&\n\nShe clicked on the next poster in her list, which I immediately recognized as a recreation of *The Breakfast Club*. The pinkish-white background accompanied by the five stars of the film on the cover - Bender (Miles), Allison (Amy), Brian (Jeff), Claire (Kelly), and Andrew (played by myself) - was an instant eyecatcher. Honestly, it was a cool picture as well. Only difference was, I didn\031t suit the role of a jock at all, didn\031t have a letterman or nothing. I felt completely miscast. Otherwise, everyone else was damn near perfeclty fitted for their roles. Well& then there was Amy, too.\n\n\034Wow, did you cast us yourself?\035 I asked. \034Or did you let the program do it\031s thing like last time?\035\n\nShe laughed with a scoff. \034Funny you ask that,\035 she said. \034It let me choose whichever part I wanted for whichever actor, with the exception of you and I, for some reason.\035\n\nOh damn. There was a clear pattern going on here, and Neptune wasn\031t being subtle about it at all. Not to my liking, that is.\n\n\034Interesting&\035 I mustered.\n\nIf you ask me, Amy was definitely a Claire. In my eyes, anyways.\n\n\034Yeah, so is the part in the movie where the school catches on fire in the end,\035 she replied.\n\n\034What? That-That never happened. I\031ve seen that movie more than once and never remember that happening.\035\n\n\034Exactly. It didn\031t. But check this out.\035\n\nAmy fast-forwarded through the movie again, with her explaining that after sitting through the whole thing, it was a near-perfect replication of the original film. None of the lines changed, none of the blocking and mannerisms, editing, soundtrack, and so on, almost like a deepfake interpretation. Everything was the same& except for the ending.\n\nThe scene in the film where Bender climbs through the vents to sneak past Vice Principal Vernon was where things began to alternate. Instead, it was myself - playing Andrew - where I was the one crawling through the vents. However, I began to notice smoke coming through the vents, and in a panic, I fell through the ceiling (like in the actual movie) and ended up on the opposite side of the school, unlike in the actual movie where Bender ends up back in the library. In our version, I also realize that there is indeed a fire burning throughout the school, caused by reasons unknown, and the alarm begins going off. I immediately take the nearest exit and make my way out, watching the building become engulfed in the huge flames.\n\nMeanwhile, the rest of the gang try to escape by taking the exits as well, but astoundingly, the doors are locked. For whatever reason, they still had to die&\n\nOut of all the interpretations the program could make, it always ended in death&\n\n\034I\031m guessing you didn\031t write a script for this one, too?\035 I spoke, utterly bewildered by what I just watched.\n\n\034You guessed right,\035 Amy confirmed.\n\nIt took a completely innocent movie, not about violence or death whatsoever, and managed to make it that way somehow. I didn\031t understand.\n\nBut that wasn\031t all. Strangely, and eerily, the film\031s main theme in both the opening and closing credits, Simple Minds\031 *Don't You (Forget About Me)*, still played in the end, except there wasn\031t a cool, happy ending with me jumping in the air in a freeze-frame. This time, I was watching in horror at the burning building, as my friends were trapped inside. And guess who was there in the background, ever so subtle&\n\n\034There he is,\035 I pointed out.\n\nAmy didn\031t even have to show me this time, I just already knew. Standing just behind the bleachers, Frank was watching from afar.\n\nAnd there was more where that came from. Amy had many more mediums starring the five of us, even seemingly innocent ones, like *Scooby-Doo*, *Rugrats, Boy Meets World,* shows and movies where no one is supposed to die at all, where death isn\031t even a concept (well, *Boy Meets World* did get serious sometimes, death included, but I digress), all ending in death somehow, and I\031m the last survivor. Always. Frank and I.\n\n\034I can\031t take anymore,\035 I told her. \034I need a& cigarette, a joint, something, I don\031t know.\035\n\n\034You don\031t smoke, do you?\035 Amy said.\n\n\034No, but after all this, I think I want to.\035\n\n\034I don\031t blame you. No matter what I feed the program, it always ends in-\035\n\n\034Death,\035 I said with her.\n\n\034Right. And Frank\031s always in the background. I only set for it to cast us - the five of us - as the main leads, no one else. Whoever else the program cast as supporting characters or background characters it did on its own.\035\n\n\034So it chooses Frank itself each time& for a reason.\035\n\n\034Is there one?\035\n\nI shrugged. \034I mean, there has to. At this point, it\031s intentional for there not to be. Right?\035\n\nAmy tilted her head. \034That would make sense, yeah, but, unlike Fe, we have little to understanding as to how this thing really works. Like, the full capabilities and workings of it. I think we should send this to her. Have her analyze it herself and see if it might help her better find any more bugs in the coding.\035\n\n\034You speak like an IT student?\035 I lightly humored.\n\nAmy smiled. \034It was on my list of maybes. But I settled for Business. Cliche, I know.\035\n\n\034Why\031d you change?\035\n\n\034\030Cause, it just gives me more potential to open doors for other things, ya know? With that knowledge, I can make a business of my own, or at least have a better understanding of how businesses work in the corporate and non-corporate world. I hope so, anyways.\035\n\nShe really was so smart. Smarter than me, for sure& and so beautiful. \n\n\034Anywho, did *you* make any new mediums?\035 she asked. \034I know you\031re not technically supposed to, but who\031s to say they\031d know or not?\035\n\n\034Oh, uh& yeah, I did try to make one - or, *did* make one,\035 I confessed.\n\n\034Oooh,\035 she childishly teased.\n\nI chuckled a guilty smile. \034It was for research purposes, okay? Like how you\031re doing.\035\n\n\034I know. I figured you would, kinda like how you did the first time without listening?\035\n\n\034Wow, way to rub it in.\035\n\n\034Hey, don\031t kill the messenger,\035 she raised her hands. \034Nah, don\031t worry, I won\031t tell anyone. It\031ll be between us. Deal?\035\n\nI smiled. \034Yeah. Deal.\035\n\n\034So what\031d you make? What movie or TV show did you come up with this time?\035\n\n\034Uh, did you ever see *Clue*?\035\n\nHer eyes looked up, shifting left to right in thought.\n\n\034I don\031t think so. I\031ve played the board game.\035\n\n\034Well, it\031s based off the board game, literally,\035 I said. \034It\031s like a classic murder mystery, like out of an Agatha Christie novel. It\031s got Tim Curry and some other famous actors in it I can\031t remember the names of.\035\n\n\034So, you intentionally chose a murder mystery, in a program that seems to be hellbent on murder,\035 - I let out a small laugh - \034starring us, I\031m guessing? Oh no, wait, you can\031t. It won\031t let you, right?\035\n\n\034At first,\035 I pointed with my finger. \034But then, I thought why not just replace us with different actors?\035\n\n\034You recast all of us?\035 she asked, sounding slightly offended.\n\n\034It was kinda the only way. Sorry.\035\n\n\034Hmph,\035 she playfully uttered in annoyance.\n\n\034If it makes you feel any better, I cast you as Minnie Shields?\035\n\nShe was a well-known female action star who took on a plethora of different roles throughout her career, kind of like Jennifer Garner or Gal Gadot. Gorgeous woman, too.\n\n\034Really? Hmm, that makes me feel a little better. Then again, her name is \030mini shields\031.\035\n\nI scoffed in wonder, never actually realizing that until now. \n\n\034Could be worse,\035 I said. \034Could be Max& *Swords*.\035\n\nAmy winced, looking off to the side.\n\n\034I\031m sorry, humor isn\031t my thing, if you haven\031t noticed watching the-\035\n\n\034I know, it\031s all right,\035 Amy said.\n\n\034But yes, that\031s what I made.\035\n\n\034So it wouldn\031t let you make one starring us without replacing us?\035\n\n\034You make it sound so bad when you put it that way.\035\n\n\034Well, no, that makes sense. That\031s& actually pretty smart.\035\n\nAnd here I thought I was the one supposed to be giving her the compliments. Only in my head, apparently.\n\n\034Essentially, it\031s a murder mystery, starring us, played by other actors, still technically acting as *us*, since in that reality, the \030confined reality\031 or whatever, made under my account ran into a loophole in casting our real selves - gosh, that hurt my brain. Except for me, I\031m still in it.\035\n\n\034Of course.\035\n\n\034So, it\031s like an *Inception*\\-type of thing. Characters or actors within& characters within *actors*. I don\031t know how to explain it any better.\035\n\n\034I get it. So have you watched it already?\035 Amy asked.\n\nI sighed. \034No, not yet. It says it\031s gonna take 20 hours to generate.\035\n\n\034Eww, why so long?\035\n\n\034I have no idea. The movie isn\031t that long. I\031ve made longer ones that have taken less than an hour. I don\031t know what the deal is.\035\n\n\034Well, in the meantime, I could make it on mine?\035\n\nI nodded. \034You could&\035\n\n\034That way we don\031t have to be replaced by A-listers and we can just be our normal, actual selves. I\031m surprised you didn\031t just send me that idea before.\035\n\n\034Well, I didn\031t plan on telling anyone, to be honest. And, well, now you know.\035\n\n\034Eh, fuck it. We\031re already in this mess. Might as well make the most of it.\035\n\nTrue.\n\n\034Did you cast& you know, \030him\031 in it?\035 Amy said.\n\n\034Who?\035 I said confusedly.\n\n\034You know, *him*?\035\n\nI arched my brow, clueless.\n\n\034Frank?\035 she whispered.\n\n\034Why didn\031t you say that? Acting like he\031s Voldemort or something?\035\n\n\034Because, he freaks me out! Ugh, he\031s just creepy! His eyes, his stare, the way he\031s always watching.\035\n\nShe did have a point. He was creepy, no doubt about it.\n\n\034Actually, it wouldn\031t let me. It ran into another continuity error. According to Neptune, on my profile, anyways, the character Frank doesn\031t exist.\035\n\n\034What?\035\n\n\034Yeah, and, when I tried replacing him with a different actor, it said, and I quote, \030he interferes with the continuity of my user profile.\031\035\n\n\034That\031s so weird.\035\n\nAmy spun her chair to face the monitor and keyboard again, as she began to initiate the process of generating our new medium.\n\n\034When you don\031t ask for Frank, he shows up whenever he pleases, but when you specifically request him, he\031s not able to make it?\035 she went on.\n\n\034Some friend he is,\035 I dryly humored.\n\nAmy half-turned to face me again, pointing her tiny finger at me.\n\n\034That was kinda funny,\035 she commented.\n\n\034Thank you.\035\n\nThe menu layout to begin setting the specifications and rules for the medium displayed on her computer, giving her a range of options. Which actors she wishes to cast? Which genre? Which prior movie or TV show did she wish to replicate, if any, or did she want to create a new one based on the modifications provided?\n\nI provided all of the information I could remember, making sure I wasn\031t mixing up any details or leaving anything out from when I remade *Clue* on my profile. \n\n\034I don\031t even know if this is gonna work,\035 I doubtfully said.\n\n\034If *what\031s* gonna work?\035 Amy asked.\n\n\034...Well, just that. Initially, I was trying to see what Frank was gonna do if I cast him in the movie - intentionally. Now, I don\031t really know what the point of this is.\035\n\nIn her eyes, Amy understood exactly what I meant at that moment.\n\n\034You wanted to see if he was gonna murder us, weren\031t you?\035 she spoke in a low, careful tone.\n\nI nodded. \034He\031s the main suspect tied to all this,\035 I proposed. \034Everywhere he goes, death seems to follow.\035\n\n\034What better way to show it than through a murder mystery, huh?\035\n\n\034Yep.\035\n\nI could see in her eyes that she was thinking again, glancing at her notes, and then back at me.\n\n\034What?\035 I asked.\n\n\034What if,\035 - she started - \034there\031s two different outcomes on both of our Neptune profiles?\035\n\n\034Hmm?\035\n\n\034We both have two different settings, right? Chaos mode and Confined Reality mode, right? Yours might only end one way based on the \030reality\031 you\031ve given it, and mine could end any sort of way, since, ya know, it\031s \030chaos.\031\035\n\n\034Shit& we just might have to put that theory to the test, Amy.\035\n\n\034Let\031s do it.\035\n\n\034Well, that\031s if it doesn\031t take forever to generate. \030Cause when I did it, it-\035\n\n\034Done,\035 Amy cut me off.\n\n\034What?\035\n\n\034It says it\031ll only take 15 minutes to load. See?\035\n\nShe pointed at the screen, showing the loading time of 14 minutes and 23 seconds. I\031ll be damned& why did say it was gonna take all day?\n\nI buzzed my lips, baffled.\n\n\034O&kay,\035 I voiced.\n\nFrom downstairs, we both turned our attention to Amy\031s aunt calling for us.\n\n\034Amy, Anthony, dinner\031s almost ready!\035 she announced.\n\n\034Okay, Aunt Vicky! Thank you!\035 Amy called back. She then turned her attention back to me. \034You\031re staying for dinner?\035\n\n\034Oh yeah, she invited me,\035 I mentioned.\n\n\034Oh& nice. Good.\035\n\n*Good&*\n\nMy phone rang, and I looked to see that it was Jeff calling, requesting FaceTime. Odd, I think that\031s the first time he\031s ever done that if I recall. I answered.\n\n\034What\031s up?\035 I started.\n\n\034Hey& um& you did some redecorating there?\035 Jeff responded, taken aback by the various posters plastered on Amy\031s walls in the background.\n\nI looked behind me and around, confused at first as to what he was talking about.\n\n\034Oh, no, I\031m at Amy\031s place,\035 I explained.\n\n\034Yooooou\031re in Amy\031s room?\035 Jeff pried.\n\n\034... Yeah,\035 I answered.\n\nAmy then leaned into the frame. \034Hey, Jeff!\035 she waved.\n\n\034... Hi,\035 Jeff awkwardly greeted.\n\n\034Did you need something?\035 I asked.\n\n\034Um, yeah, man, peep this,\035 he said, turning the screen away from him and onto his double monitors at his desktop. \034I was reviewing the last episode of *Chaos TV!* we did - you know, the fourth wall break one that completely went to shit?\035\n\n\034Yeah,\035 Amy and I said together.\n\n\034Well, remember how everyone\031s lines seemed totally random and inconsistent?\035 We both nodded. \034I went ahead and typed them out line-by-line in a word document for me to analyze and compare to the original script we uploaded into the program, seeing if there was some sort of error we might\031ve put in somewhere that might\031ve created a bug or inconsistency that Neptune couldn\031t compute - just any sort of explanation as to why our \030actor\031 selves were acting so weird.\035\n\n\034Yeah?\035 Amy acknowledged.\n\nJeff paused for a moment, either to catch a breath or because he couldn\031t believe what he was about to tell us.\n\n\034I don\031t think the lines were as random as we first thought,\035 Jeff said. \034I think they were quite intentional.\035\n\nI then remembered the moment when Kelly\031s on-screen self jumped in to change the subject when everyone else on screen felt noticeably uncomfortable and unsure what to do next in next. I remember how bizarre that whole ordeal was, and just how spontaneous and realistic it felt, as though she actually improvised on the spot. As though she were *cognizant*&\n\n\034What did you find?\035 I asked.\n\n\034So, when I stacked the lines on top of each other in a word document, ya know, when I typed them out myself,\035 Jeff continued, \034I noticed something.\035\n\nFrom his screen looking off of my phone, I could see the manuscript taken from the lines of the episode generated by the program and onto his word document. There were a bunch of footnotes scattered across the page to the sides as well. Like Amy, Jeff was a hardcore notetaker. \n\n\034He takes better notes than me,\035 Amy mumbled.\n\nHowever, I also noticed that the beginning of each line, specifically the first letter of each sentence, was highlighted yellow. Wonder what that was about.\n\nJeff went on, \034The beginning letter of each line seems to spell out a complete sentence, starting from the page when I deliver my first one - and *only* one, really. But notice, it\031s not exactly the beginning letter of every sentence, but rather the beginning letter each time a new person starts speaking. There were two exceptions to that rule that I found, particularly with Miles and Kelly. They\031re the only ones that repeat, if that makes sense.\035\n\nIt didn\031t. Not yet, anyways. \n\nHe moved his phone closer for us to get a better look. Jeff had it typed out for us line-by-line, person-by-person, just as he explained, only typing out the first couple of words instead of typing out the whole line to save space:\n\nJEFF: *Hmmm*.\n\n*(AUDIENCE LAUGHTER)*\n\nAMY: *Even though my parents&*\n\nKELLY: *Look, my folks know&*\n\nFRANK: *Parents& gotta love \030em.*\n\nANTHONY: *Uranus is the&*\n\nAMY: *Saturn isn\031t?*\n\nMILES: *\030Your\031 anus (laughs immaturely).*\n\nMILES: *Oh, I know, it\031s&*\n\nKELLY: *Ugh, such a manchild.* \n\nKELLY (looks at the camera): *C\031mon, seriously&*\n\nAMY (to Kelly): *Anna just a&*\n\nANTHONY: *Now, correct me&*\n\nAMY*: Except, technically&*\n\nKELLY: *Now which&*\n\nANTHONY (shrugs): *Don\031t know.*\n\nAMY: *That being said&*\n\nMILES: *How can we see?*\n\nAMY (nervously): *I& I, uh&*\n\nKELLY: *Sounds fine to&*\n\n\034After that, Frank kind of ruins the whole thing,\035 Jeff explains. \034After that, there\031s no more& structure, if you will, to the beginning letters forming some sort of sentence-\035\n\n\034I\031m not understanding, Jeff,\035 I cut in. \034Are you saying the beginning letters of each line - like, the *very* beginning letters - are acting like some sort of&\035\n\n\034Acronym?\035 Amy finished.\n\nI nodded. \034That word. Acronym.\035\n\n\034Exactly. The whole thing is an acronym.\035\n\nJeff opened another tab with a similar format, each line typed out on a page in script format, except this time the actor names indicating who was saying which given line were taken out. It was just the bare words.\n\n*Hmmm*.\n\n*Even though my parents&*\n\n*Look, my folks know&*\n\n*Parents& gotta love \030em.*\n\n*Uranus is the&*\n\n*Saturn isn\031t?*\n\n*\030Your\031 anus (laughs immaturely).*\n\n*Oh, I know, it\031s&*\n\n*Ugh, such a manchild.*\n\n*C\031mon, seriously&*\n\n*Anna just a&*\n\n*Now, correct me&*\n\n*Except, technically&*\n\n*Now which&*\n\n*Don\031t know.*\n\n*That being said&*\n\n*How can we see?*\n\n*I& I, uh&*\n\n*Sounds fine to&*\n\n\034I went ahead and just typed them out this way so I could further analyze it and see if I could decode something,\035 Jeff said. \034And& well&\035\n\nAmy and I squinted, leaning further towards the tiny screen on my phone to read each line individually, paying particular attention to some sort of pattern in the beginning letters.\n\n\034It could be a reach, I could just be making something out of nothing, but I don\031t know guys,\035 Jeff spoke in a foreboding, almost frightful tone.\n\nJust when he said it, it hit me right then and there. It did spell out something. But Jeff showed us another page that he\031d typed out anyways, this time spelling it out in clear English for us, the first letters of each line stacked atop one another.\n\n\034Oh my God,\035 I muttered under my breath, chilled to the bone.\n\n*H*\n\n*E*\n\n*L*\n\n*P*\n\n*U*\n\n*S*\n\n*Y*\n\n*O*\n\n*U*\n\n*C*\n\n*A*\n\n*N*\n\n*E*\n\n*N*\n\n*D*\n\n*T*\n\n*H*\n\n*I*\n\n*S*\n\n*Help us. You can end this.*

                                 I've been passionately building up this world and story for over a year now, though it's scrambled across many text files on my computer. I've tried organizing it the best I could, though I can't get comfortable with it. I would try using word or pdf documents, but I feel like it would still be just as difficult to keep things clean with how many things there are to keep track of in this concept of mine.\n\nI look at sites like fandom wikis, and find the layout and organization so attractive. I find myself clicking through almost endlessly, so I wondered if you can make a fandom wiki that's completely private and offline? The answer was no, at least as far as I can tell.\n\nI tried searching for other ways to make a similar private wiki. the closest I was able to find was mediawiki, which looks a little too complicated to use to be worth it, and other 'personal wiki' programs that look more like basic note organizers rather than wiki tools.\n\nIf there's a program you know of that might be what I'm looking for, I would greatly appreciate your input.

This is gonna be my first trip report ever so sorry if its not very typical. Im gonna do a trip report of my trip and try to explain my friends trip a bit.\n\nThis all took place like 4 days ago. Me and 3 friends, lets call them Chris, Bam and Chanel (not their real names), planned on tripping on some LSD at Bams place. Chris had the LSD and had to work till 4 at that day. So in his lunch break we met up and he gave me enough LSD to get me to 500ug Bam to 375 ug and Chanel to 200ug. On the way to Bams place i picked up 600 mg of DXM so that me and Chris could both be on 500ug of LSD and 300mg of DXM.\n\nSo now me, Chanel and Bams were just chilling at his place.\n\nEven tho Chris had to work till 4 we proceeded to simultaneously drop at 2:45 Pm.\n\n**T+1h:**  \nBecause me and Chris dropped a fairly high dose it started kicking fast and hard and Chris asked me if i could pick him up from work because he didnt want to come alone because he would be too high to catch the right bus. So i did it.\n\n**T+2h:**  \nChris's work is basically right in the city center and Bams place is fairly far when going by bus, so i finally arrive at the point we were supposed to meet and through the bus window i see Chris's big ass smile and i just know the we are already high as shit.\n\n**T+2:45h:**  \nWe finally arrive ad Bams place and start tripping hard, it was a nasty day it was snowing a bit it was cold as shit and just wet. so we mostly chilled inside besides smoking cigarettes. We planned on taking the DXM at the 3 hour mark so i put it on the table.\n\n**T+3h:**  \nI told Chris he should take out his part of the DXM, what would've been 10 pills and i went to the toilet. We already done LSDXM a couple of times but never with this high of a dose of LSD. I assume Chris got confused and stupidly took all of it. This Motherfucker. I came back from the toilet and saw a completely empty pill storage and asked where mine where, Chris was already so high he couldnt really communicate. I dont know why but i could clearly think and Chris was basically so out that he took all of the pills. From that point on Me and Bams already knew this would be a stressful night.\n\n**T+4h:**  \nMe, Bams and Chanel were smoking outside. Chris would've been smoking with us but he was already gone, ego deathing hard as fuck. i was looking inside to keep an eye on Chris, i see him taking a glass of water and accidentally spilling it on his pants. In his state he freaks out because of the water and strips off his clothes, form the stomached own he was nude lol. He was still freaking out and running around in the house, if you have ever tried to hold someone tight against his will, ego deathing, you know how much actual power there is in a human being. Me and Bams put him in a separate room and i kept an eye him. Chanel is a girl so naturally she thought Chris stripped nude because of her and i was the only one who saw what actually happened.\n\nBams and Chanel are a couple so naturally they together went upstairs, called me and told me to clean up and keep an eye on him because Chanel couldnt be around him anymore so that wouldnt happen again. Dont forget i was also tripping fucking balls at this point, i tried to explain what really happened but that shit was hard not gonna lie.\n\n**T+4.30h:**  \nI cleaned up the mess Chris made, put his pants and underwear in the washer and gave him some new ones. Chris calmed down and i put a series that he was watching on his phone on, he  \ncertainly didnt understand shit from the series but it calmed him down a lot. Chris is seriously addicted to nicotine so in his ego death state he wanted cigs all the time, so i just gave him one but didnt light it and that also calmed him down. I finally managed to explain what really happened and Bams and Chanel came back to us because being alone with an ego deathing person is boring as hell.\n\n**T+5h:**  \nSome couple other friend came around. they were all one some Valium and weed and other shit (sadly their basically addicts). we hung out listened to music and Chris was just wondering around like a zombie basically, saying random fucking words. At one point Bams was chilling on the couch and Chris proceeds to sit on him put a leg on him and say: "aye pericoooo" obviously we laughed so fucking hard at that because that guy isnt even from Spain XD.  \nI also sold the last 2 Tabs of acid to one of the guys for 20 Bucks so we could go buy cigs.\n\n**T+6h:**  \nThe other guys left and now its just me, Bams, Chanel and Chris again .  \nMe and Bams did a modern warfare 1v1 on King with spr only (for anyone that is interested) and i completely destroyed (25 to 8) him even tho i was on 500ug of LSD and could barely talk correctly.  \nWe chilled listened to music and just tripped basically.\n\n**T+8h:**  \nI dont Know how anymore but we realized that Chris was slowly coming back from his state. He was still tripping harder than any of us but he was responsive at this point.\n\n**T+9h:**  \nWe asked Chris what the actual fuck happened to him and even why he took so many pills and he didnt know shit. he couldnt remember why he took so much or anything. He couldnt even remember that there were other people than us four at some point. Shit was divinely wild in his head. He repeatedly wanted me to promise him that we never do that shit again and i agreed instantly because keeping an eye on him wasnt fun either.\n\n**T+10h:**  \nWe watched the Lil Peep documentary and proceeded to just chill out. At some point me and Bams went to buy cigarettes and we did some smoke breaks.\n\n**T+12h:**  \nAt this point it was almost 3 am so we decided to go to sleep, i gave everyone a melatonin pill and said good night.\n\n**T 7:30 am:**  \nI was the only one who had to go to work the next day so with 5 hours of sleep i cleaned up a bit and left for work. So sadly i couldnt talk to the sober Chris and let him explain everything a bit more clearly to me.  \nSo yeah 500ug of LSD and 600mg of DXM is a lot. I texted with Chris and mentally right now hes doing completely fine and is just sad he couldnt "be with us" on that evening.\n\nthanks for reading lol

 \ntop class research by Ella Jessel, full text vs paywall, **copyright** ellajessel architectsjournal\n\n*A council in Oxfordshire set out to challenge mediocre mass housing by creating a self-build haven. But is it losing its way? Ella Jessel visits Graven Hill.*\n\n*A white mansion with imposing pillars stands grandly next to a row of brick terraces. Nearby there is a Poundbury-style traditional cottage, a black house and a smattering of modern chalets with big glass windows. Someone even has their own green wall.*\n\n*On any other new housing development, such an architectural jumble would be discouraged, if not prohibited. But Graven Hill in Oxfordshire \023 the UK\031s largest self and custom build site \023 is a giant petri dish for design. It\031s an audacious bid by Cherwell District Council to turn an ex-army base near Bicester into a community of 1,900 homes.*\n\n*Since the first \030pioneers\031 arrived in a bare field in 2015, their tumultuous journeys documented on the Grand Designs spin-off The Street, hundreds of brave builders have moved to Graven Hill to have a crack at building their \030dream homes\031.* ***Inspired by the Dutch*** *self-build village of Almere, the development set out to be an antidote to the UK\031s swathes of \030cookie cutter\031 homes built by volume housebuilders.*\n\n*Today, 400 homes have been completed. As entire streets rise from the rubble, the development offers plenty of fodder for the ongoing national debate over what constitutes \030good\031 design, not to mention insight into the innate human desire to \030build big\031 (even if it means losing your own garden). It is eye-popping, bizarre and in places \023 as popular Graven Hill designer Charlie Luxton puts it \023 utterly \030joyous\031.*\n\n*But as with all experiments, there are stumbling blocks. Some residents and architects fear Graven Hill\031s latest new-build homes veer sharply away from its original experimental ethos. There is concern, too, over the build quality of its affordable housing, consigned to rows of small terraced houses, as well as frustration at the lack of community facilities.*\n\n*Graven Hill is being seen as a test case for self-build in the UK. Unlike countries such as Austria and Germany, where over half of all homes are custom built, the sector accounts for just 13,000 homes a year in Britain. Amid calls for the government to help scale up the industry, what lessons can be learned from Graven Hill?*\n\n*The first of many striking things about the site is its sheer size. Cherwell Council bought the 188ha plot from the Ministry of Defence in 2014. A short drive from Bicester Village, it has its own wetland, a wooded hill formerly used for cross-country training and is surrounded by farmland.*\n\n*Unsurprisingly, the self-build bonanza is a magnet for architects keen to fulfil ambitions to design their own homes.*\n\n*After deciding to dedicate the site to self-build, Cherwell drew up a business case and set up the wholly-owned Graven Hill Village Development Company (GHVDC) to run it. In 2015, Glenn Howells Architects drew up a masterplan that included a primary school, to be designed by Architype, a nursery and a community centre as well as shops, cafés and a pub.*\n\n*It had design codes for 11 character areas, such as \030tree-lined boulevards\031 and \030urban lanes\031, and detailed \030plot passports\031 including roof and façade material palettes, as well as maximum build heights and parking space requirements. An early batch of 10 plots was released to the 10 \030pioneer\031 residents at a cut price of £100,000 each.*\n\n*Walking around the self-build streets, the houses have far more variation than a standard housing development. But while there are zany moments \023 a stripey beach-hut house with a giraffe model lying in the driveway \023 most people have played it safer with muted colour palettes of greys and blues, oversized windows and a rash of garages.*\n\n*Unsurprisingly, the self-build bonanza is a magnet for architects keen to fulfil ambitions to design their own homes. After the \030pioneers\031, Justin Metcalfe, an associate at Purcell, and his wife Catherine were first to sign up, reserving a three-to-four bed plot in a \030rural lanes\031 character area near the site entrance for £139,000.*\n\n*\030We looked locally around Bicester and found a limited choice of three or four-bed homes around £400,000 to £500,000,\031 he says. \030Graven Hill provided a trade-off between affordability and taking on the risk of an untested housing delivery model.\031*\n\n*Justin and Catherine Metcalfe outside their self\021build home with a Charlie Luxton-designed self-build on the right*\n\n*Metcalfe designed a tall detached family home with timber-clad façade, an open-plan living and kitchen area and a large top-floor master bedroom. Planning permission was \030relatively straightforward\031, he says, as a local development order for the site means designs are usually waved through in 28 days. Under its \030Golden Brick\031 set-up, Graven Hill built the foundations at a cost of £37,000 and then the couple project managed the build themselves with help from friends and family. In total, it cost them £435,000.*\n\n*Robert DuNoyer, another architect, has realised his teenage dream of building himself a house, and used an insulated concrete formwork system clad in different materials. With his brother and a neighbour he spent two and a half years building; even pouring the concrete.*\n\n*He enjoyed it so much, he is now picking up design work from other self-builders on site. \030I\031m getting work through word of mouth and carving out a niche,\031 he says. \030I like trying to make the client happy. I get a kick out of helping self-builders.\031*\n\n*There are still no amenities on site. The shops remain boarded up and the pub is now uncertain*\n\n*But self-build is not easy and the slow pace of delivery has led Graven Hill to \030evolve\031 its original approach. \030Even delivering the first 10 \034pioneers\035 didn\031t happen the way we expected it to,\031 says GHVDC managing director Karen Curtin (one is still not yet finished). \030It became very clear that if we were going to stick to just doing self-build, we would be waiting till 2050 to deliver the site.\031*\n\n*There are still no amenities on site. The community centre is a planning obligation only triggered once the development reaches a certain number of occupations. The shops remain boarded up (though a licensed café has just been announced) and the pub is now uncertain, with GHVDC saying it has struggled to find an operator given the challenges of the pandemic. It is now proposing changes to the masterplan.*\n\n*Metcalfe says tenants are desperately needed to ensure the local centre becomes a thriving hub and believes GHVDC has added responsibility to be \030custodians for the community\031, especially as self-builders are preoccupied with their self-build plots.*\n\n*To keep the development on track, the company opted to \030diversify\031 its product offer and began delivering its own custom-build homes. But this put it on a collision course with some of the self-builders, who say it is building exactly the type of \030identikit\031 housing they were seeking to escape.*\n\n*\030You can make some changes to the internal layout, but the \\[GHVDC\\] homes are not really custom-build,\031 says Paul Troop, a lawyer and one of the \030pioneer\031 builders who made his own house from scratch with sustainable materials such as hempcrete. He and most of his neighbours objected to a row of GHVDC-designed houses being built on plots originally designated as self-build.*\n\n*He says Graven Hill was created to offer an \030alternative way of building\031 but instead it is now building \030standard\031 homes. \030It\031s a real missed opportunity because there is much that is really good about Graven Hill, and it\031s much better than most developments,\031 he remarks.*\n\n*Troop\031s neighbour Lynn Pratt had a tumultuous journey building her \030Pangolin\031 home with an oast house-inspired roundel, designed by Oxford-based Adrian James Architects. She loves her home but says the frustrations over Graven Hill\031s new direction have left her feeling as if she \030bought into a dream that now isn\031t happening\031. Pratt adds that prices are out of reach for most people, now that the larger plots cost £245,000 without foundations, and that the smaller plots are no longer available.*\n\n*Tom Bennett, an associate at London practice Studio Bark, says in the early stages it was exciting to be involved in a \030democratic\031 project that confronted the \030banality and mediocrity\031 of so many new housing estates. Studio Bark\031s black box house next to Pratt\031s \023 dubbed the \030Marmite house\031 by its neighbours \023 was a chance to flex the practice\031s creative skills and was the first project to use its U-Build modular system, designed with circular-economy principles.*\n\n*But Bennett says it appears the experimental ethos has \030gone by the wayside\031 and that self-build is no longer front and centre. \030Many of the more generic homes that have sprung up in the time since would not be out of place on a conventional estate of the type that Graven Hill was supposed to be challenging,\031 he argues.*\n\n*Curtin insists the houses it is building are \030custom-build\031 and do not all look the same. She is sympathetic to the self-builders, who, she says, have been up in the \030wilderness\031 on their own (an access road to the main site has still not been built) but argues that if the development isn\031t built, the amenities won\031t arrive. \030What some of our self-builders would like \023 and this is where you get the tensions \023 is for every house to be different,\031 she says.*\n\n*These are issues elsewhere on site, including its affordable housing element, where little effort has been made to make it tenure-blind. The first phase of 93 affordable homes are in small terraces that contrast starkly with the blingy self-builds. Residents there say it has led to a palpable sense of socio-economic divide across the scheme.*\n\n*There are also concerns over the build quality of the homes built by GHVDC. Residents in some of the shared ownership units, who wished to remain anonymous, are challenging the company over air-tightness which, they say, is causing top-floor bedrooms to be freezing in winter and boiling in summer. They claim independent tests show air leakage is significantly in excess of the rate given on their energy performance certificates.*\n\n*Passivhaus builder Beattie Passive, which built 49 homes for Graven Hill, is no longer working for the company. Its founder Ron Beattie told the AJ that, while he \030took his hat off\031 to Graven Hill for what it was trying to achieve, its margins were too tight and the programme was \030pushed to the limit\031.*\n\n*In response, GHVDC says all contractors had determined the cost and programme to deliver works. As for the shared ownership homes, it says all tests carried out met performance standards that were significantly above Building Regulations.*\n\n*Graven Hill is not getting everything right but experts in the UK\031s self-build sector point out it is being held to higher standards than most developers, and that it does not have the backing of an established industry, as schemes would in mainland Europe.*\n\n*\030Graven Hill is as successful as the typical average housebuilder in an environment that is still completely hostile to self-build,\031 says Tory MP Richard Bacon, whose report last year urged the government to scale up the sector and give people an alternative to housing \030designed by accountants\031. He says the future of self-build is in lots of small sites dotted across the country with a \030plot shop\031 in every local planning authority.*\n\n*Graven Hill\031s residents \023 already a tight-knit group thanks to their arduous building journeys \023 are adamant the scheme can recapture its experimental spirit. All it needs is a little more design expertise, and to mine one of its greatest assets: the existing community\031s energy and creativity.*\n\n*As Troop says: \030I\031ve been blown away by the number of people who are interested in helping fix things, and getting things done. If Graven Hill harnessed it, they could do really, really well.\031*\n\ncopyright ellajessel architectsjournal

bottom*]\n\n**BACKGROUND**\nI'm doing a *thing* where I need all the heights and weights of the S.T.A.R.S. members. So I go to the RE Wiki and everything is fine until... Until I get to the S.T.A.R.S. BRAVO Pilot, one Edward Dewey.\n\nAll the wikis I found have him labeled as 247 lbs with no further explanation given... Wat?\nGranted it also lists him as 6"4, so, already a *bit of a lad*. But even when taking his height into account, that still puts him at *medically obese*.\n\nAn obese S.T.A.R.S. member?\nI mean, it could just be a lot of muscle, but uh... He doesn't look Dwayne Johnson jacked... Which is about what he would have to be to reach a BMI that high with just muscle.\n\nSo what gives?\n\n**QUESTION**\nThe wikis all cite **Resident Evil Archives P. 135** as their source.\nI would love to verify this myself, but I don't have a copy and I can't seem to find a PDF online.\n\nWould someone who has the book (or knows where to find a PDF) please let me know what Page 135 actually has printed on it?\n\nI am really curious to know if his currently listed weight is an error that everyone just went along with, or if the book might actually explain why he is so big.\n\nThank you in advance!\n\n**PAGE 135***\nThe page contains quick blurbs of several S.T.A.R.S. members, including Edward Dewey.\n\nNot only is the weight listed on the wikis correct, but the bit of text describing him even mentions his "*imposing frame*".\n\nA big thank you to User 'No_Reply_8557' for solving this little mystery of mine!

                                                                         I could really use some emotional advice. I'm having a really hard time with my pregnancy and wondering if I made a mistake.  Not that I can do anything about it now but, here goes. \n\nMy wife and I are in our mid 30s. A good friend of ours offered to be our sperm donor. As luck would have it, I got pregnant on the first try and my wife and I were over the moon with joy. \n\nThat was 8 weeks ago. \n\nIn that time, my mother died a horrible death. My estranged grandfather died the same day and I didn't even know he was sick. My bipolar (and only) sibling stole money from me then called the police on me telling them I had killed myself (???) and when I confronted her after she blocked me and my wife on everything. My dad is a mean, irresponsibly alcoholic who lives 5 hours away. I have no other family left besides an indifferent uncle. \n\nI was hoping my in-laws would be excited for us but the opposite has proven true. My father in law thinks our gay marriage is "a joke" (he actually said this at the wedding). My mother in law resents me for "stealing" her daughter away. My brother in law and his wife show no interest in me, not sure why because we seem to get along in person. But they didn't even message me when my mom died to give condolences. When my wife asked her brother why he didn't reach out to me to say sorry or something he said "it would have been disingenuous so I didn't say anything ". Talk about a knife to the heart. They also live across the country and in the 6 years my wife and I have been together they have never ONCE come to see us. We have to fly to them to have any relationship. Neither of them have told me congratulations on the pregnancy. But they constantly talk to my wife about their new pregnancy. It hurts.  Why am I nothing?\n\nYes, Sister in law is pregnant with their 2nd child, she just announced it this week. Instantly I am overshadowed. Our baby is not their bloodline. Why should they care? They are raving about the sister in law's new pregnancy. My father in law is flying across the country to see them. Mother in law is flying across the country for their current kid's birthday. They never see us, even if invited. I am invisible. \n\nWe texted the ultrasound picture to her family and got a gif in response and "neat". Nothing. Crickets. \n\nHow can I bring a baby into this world, a world that has rejected it before it's even born? I feel selfish for inflicting my desires of parenthood on this baby. I wanted to give my child a life better than mine, free from neglect and abandonment and rejection. The life I have lived. I have doomed my baby to the same lonely unwanted existence I grew up having. I am very resentful of myself right now. I do not like myself right now. Sometimes I wish I weren't gay as much as I hate to say it. Things would be so much easier. More people might love me. \n\nI wish I knew what to change to make my in laws love me. Maybe if I was less fat? Funnier? Smarter? Wealthier? I once overheard my mother in law talking about me and my family on the phone and she said "oh her family is all white trash". I know how she sees me and yet. I kept hoping. It would be nice to have some sort of mother figure. MIL once told me that my wife could never love me. It haunts me. \n\nI miss my mom. I feel empty without her. I hate how much she suffered. She eventually forgot my name, how to speak, eat. She was only 57. I even miss my crappy mean sibling. I miss the sober dad I never had. How was it that 8 weeks ago I was happier than I've ever been and now I hate myself? Does this get better? \n\nI told my wife my feelings and now she's in the other room crying about herself. I have no one to talk to. My feelings are a plague. Is this all hormones, or reality? Can I raise a baby with no family support on either side? \n\nI am so tired all the time and sick to my stomach. All I can do is cry and feel sorry for myself. Pathetic, I know. Hoping someone can give me some advice to help me back on a positive path. Thank you for your time.

Her vulnerabilities, insecurities, relationships to family and other friends...it's only been nine months, but since we text so much it wasn't difficult for this person to become a staple in my life, as I am one in hers.\n\nI figure I am a bit on the ace spectrum because I think I've been sexually attracted to someone once in my entire life (specifically, Eduardo from The Social Network). However, my romantic crushes have usually been quite shallow (the worst one probably being this one pianist whose language I didn't even understand, I just liked the way he played and his speaking voice and his features).\n\nAnd this girl...I've never questioned our platonic relationship before, except that she started dating this guy recently (her first romantic experience) and all of a sudden she's all I can think about. I've developed sensual attraction to her. I am seeing her good qualities with newfound appreciation; the glasses are mildly rose coloured. When she's sad, I have the newfound urge to bury her into my arms until the sadness is gone, or brainstorm extravagant gift ideas to show her how much she is loved. Sometimes I wonder about kissing her, though I don't want to have sex.\n\nIt's occurred to me that I'm pretty much emotionally monogamous with her. She's my go-to texter, and I wouldn't start an emotional relationship with anyone else because I have her. Consequently, I also can't imagine starting a romantic relationship with anyone else, because I feel like there'd be an emotional prerequisite. It wouldn't be a big stretch to initiate romance, all we'd have to do is go out more and label them dates and be more touchy with each other, all of which I would welcome.\n\nEven though she admits she'll never be as close emotionally with this guy as she is with me, her idea of romance doesn't have that emotional prerequisite. She likes feeling desired and she likes the physical intimacy, and she fulfils her emotional needs elsewhere (with me). That brought me a lot of comfort for a while ("no need to be jealous, you're still irreplaceable to her") but even knowing that I remain her confidante I find that I am still bothered.\n\nCurious thing here is that none of this intense questioning started until I started reckoning with the idea of her in a relationship that isn't mine. I know she has other close friendships but I am not jealous of those because I feel like even if she's known those  close friends longer and is therefore more familiar with them, I know her deeper. I can better empathize with her thoughts.\n\nThis guy isn't a threat to deepness either, but the idea of him being with her bothers me. It may be the physical aspect or the implied monogamy of a romantic relationship or the time spent with him (even though she doesn't spend any less time with me. She has so much love to pass around, that one).\n\nI can't stand seeing them together. I want to steal her away or crush his dreams. Still, if she broke up with him, I don't know if these strange feelings would stick around. Maybe they would, and this brought them to my attention, or maybe this is pure jealousy that will be gone as soon as I have her back. Yet, I can't imagine a potential romantic relationship that, as long as I know her, isn't with her... \n\nAm I in love or am I jealous or do I just love her platonically? What am I even jealous of? Would I ever have felt like this if not for the guy? Why is it that this specific experience is so characteristically demiromantic but my past crushes haven't been? What do I do with myself?

behind the monthly community map is to share a map exchange string at the beginning of every month, and get as many people as we can to start a new world with it. Then at the end of the month (or even periodically if you'd prefer!) we share screenshots and saves of our factories so that we can see how different people approach the same spawn; how they set up their base, how they deal with aliens, and how they arrange their science, power, and everything else.\n\nI hope it can highlight how many different ways there are to do things, inspire some new designs, and maybe seeing how veteran Factorio players tackle problems will help out new players facing the exact same problems. (Of course, there's also the fact that it'll be interesting to see all of the different possible factories - the good, the bad, and the ugly.)\n\n**Last Month's Results**\n\n[March 2022 Results](https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comments/tu0c46/factorio_community_map_results_march_2022)\n\n**The Community Map**\n\nAnother month, another map! And as promised, I have quite the interesting family of mods for this month's map. Drum roll please!\n\n...\n\nAAI Vehicles! It's such a large family of mods with such a deep, interlinked system, I always felt a bit intimidated by it, and as such, I never wound up using them. But if I never use them, I never become familiar with them, and the cycle continues. So I won't be using *all* of the AAI mods, but instead just a handful to help get acquainted with them. But that brings me to the next point:\n\n*~~I wound up having to modify quite a few of the settings for these mods - both the AAI mods and a couple others I threw in. If you're not familiar with why that's problematic, it's because not only would I have to go through each option I modified and list it here next to the mod it belongs to, but then all of you would have to go through and, one by one, change your settings to match mine. Sounds like a pain, right?~~*\n\n*~~So while I will list them all here, just so you can see them, I strongly suggest you skip past all this and just download the mod/settings sync file available under the exchange string.~~*\n\n&gt;( a° \\<U+0096> a°)  \n&gt;  \n&gt;You've been pranked. Deceived. Quite possibly bamboozled! But now that the day of trickery has come to an end, I have a confession to make.  \n&gt;  \n&gt;While the cycle of trees into biters into burning, exploding trees and sometimes large rocks or cliffs was one of the most amazing and terrible combinations of mods I've ever seen and may well be my magnum opus of terrible maps - this is not the real map for April.  \n&gt;  \n&gt;Shocking, I know. Contain your dismay for a moment. This map shall be preserved for posterity behind a spoiler tag, so should you wish to give it a try in the future, it will still be available to you. If you would like a look at what this map could be like, here's a screenshot of mine from roughly five minutes after I'd started: [https://i.imgur.com/8FtUDwk.png](https://i.imgur.com/8FtUDwk.png)  \n&gt;  \n&gt;But now is time to stop looking to yesterday, and instead look towards tomorrow! ...Or today, rather. I hope you all had a good laugh at this stupid map I spent too much time gathering mods for, and enjoy the real AAI map - I *do* actually think it will be a fun mod and a fun map, so without further ado...\n\nWith all that said, here's the list!\n\n**Required mods:**\n\n[Informatron](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/informatron)\n\n[AAI Signals](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/aai-signals)\n\n[AAI Programmable Vehicles](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/aai-programmable-vehicles)\n\n[AAI Vehicles: Chaingunner](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/aai-vehicles-chaingunner)\n\n[AAI Vehicles: Miner](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/aai-vehicles-miner)\n\n[AAI Industry](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/aai-industry)\n\n&gt;!Biter Reincarnation!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Settings: Map:!&lt;\n\n&gt;&gt;!\\- Turn to tree chance: 100!&lt;  \n&gt;  \n&gt;&gt;!\\- Turn to burning tree chance: 100!&lt;  \n&gt;  \n&gt;&gt;!\\- Turn to rock chance: 50!&lt;  \n&gt;  \n&gt;&gt;!\\- Turn to cliff chance: 30!&lt;  \n&gt;  \n&gt;&gt;!\\- Max reincarnations per second: 20!&lt;  \n&gt;  \n&gt;&gt;!\\- Max reincarnation queued seconds: 10!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Exploding Trees!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Settings: Map:!&lt;\n\n&gt;&gt;!\\- Exploding Tree probability: 100!&lt;\n\n&gt;!I speak for the trees! v1.1!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Settings: Map:!&lt;\n\n&gt;&gt;!\\- Spawn Probability: 100!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Toxic Forest!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Settings: Startup:!&lt;\n\n&gt;&gt;!\\- Clear Radius: 128!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Exchange string:!&lt;\n\n&gt;&gt;!\\&gt;&gt;&gt;eNp1Uz2IE0EUnmcuXHIHckUKBT1TXKOwYROV06CZsRAR0e5q3Wwm MrC7E2d3xdPCFFcqNjYK4rXm4DoLu4AgCgqHYmF3YqGFyolyNkKcmc1 s9lbvwXv7zXvf+5vdBQTopFQpfay0NOVyx0NoKE8Erw0GeMblvR4VFh c06y67Iu5Qi7OdZBpQf9lqOyE1FXVVJniQr1AMIx7s9ESC0lDOQhJvH 8/GwglY7OdzEWwvnkb9lXmto9uoOhoplWhT5itF0F8bHGkhkL6xTO1z eRAJ7lkhjSIWXG068Y1mmzlhya7Vj9tSDuYZPmdhFAuqaWXLrtmaZ+3 K6wp6LaaBu9z0Yy9iPY9RUWrUbC1l6tHrTsR4MGtfri9aLPScoFN0Pd btIlQ9s7T0Xu1OAMGtyvq5jzfvY0hmr5Ex2Bp7hm3jOW/AJbJraMGAY 5k6R7X8zICkaSRbjFklMgFJcEUFAe5+e7r6+8VGC/48+fH2YvsKhvrZ yvetxnpLBqfV9e9JzcMHSp6ZVZCpuYnHoQ8Y3rxW8hVDUWVUlCEnpBl eKCCY2yvR6h1pqgeQGa1lylQIdLVsm00+GfAO5/eQF3FKFZ9X5qUyum E6GSSQ3CNADpno/glF5jdQdobOZMNXpu3zTP/cIP++iOweOc8C+c9rm FENO6n5Ukinkfe5MW1O5DGBggKK9Uv6klPydyWlkucc0deto+lngz4/ Ouz/BXV14AU=&lt;&lt;&lt;!&lt;\n\n&gt;!What your starting area should look like: https://i.imgur.com/0IVPY7b.jpg!&lt;\n\n&gt;!Sync File (Recommended): https://drive.google.com/file/d/17molFwRnsHKapvmSuWS6Evtllww7TDj0/view?usp=sharing!&lt;\n\n&gt;!See, I wasn't kidding - it's a lot.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the chaingunner works personally, so I think I'm gonna go get on that. Later\\~\n\n**Exchange String Help**\n\nIf anyone isn't sure how to use an exchange string, just go to new game like you're going to generate a new world, and at the bottom there's a button just above play labelled "Import map exchange string" - the icon looks like a little arrow going into a tray/bucket. Just copy the exchange string above and paste it into the box that comes up when you press that button. Press confirm, and that's it! You're good to go. Just generate the world and come back in a month to show us how your factory turned out!\n\nIf you run into any issues check to make sure that you copied the whole string, including the three greater than/lesser than signs at the beginning and end, and make sure that your Factorio is up to date with the most recent version installed. (As of the time of this post, **the most recent version of Factorio is 1.1.57**.)\n\n**Having Issues With The Sync File?**\n\nIf you're uncertain how to use the sync file I provided above, here are step by step instructions:\n\n**1)** First, of course, is to download the file. Make sure you know where this file is so you can move it later. (It will be in your browser's default download folder unless you've changed it.) **2)** Locate where Factorio's save folder is on your computer. If you've installed Factorio at its default location ( C:\\\\Program Files\\\\Factorio) then there will be a shortcut to your saves folder there called "saves". Double-click it to go to the saves folder. **3)** Take the file you downloaded and move it into this folder.\n\nThat should be it! Now just launch Factorio and make sure you sync your mods to this save before playing. If you'd like to play on this save specifically (for example, if this month has some per-save settings you don't feel like messing with) then you'll notice when you load the map normally your player will be named "ChaosBeing" (since I'm the one who started the save, of course). To get around this, you can host it as a local multiplayer game and then save. You should now appear as your own character when you load the map from now on!\n\nIf you have any issues, feel free to ask in the comments below, or in the monthly map's channel on the official Factorio Discord.\n\n**Want To Play With Others?**\n\nIf you have an open public server, let me know in the comments below or send me a PM and I'll add your server here!\n\nOur MVP strikes again, with a lightning fast server ready to go! Especially on this one, if the setup seems like a hassle, go join someone who's already got it done for you! See [his comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/factorio/comments/tu27i0/comment/i31df9m) below for details.\n\n**Feel Like Watching Someone Else?**\n\nIf you are a streamer or let's player who will be recording yourself building a new factory on a community map, I'd be happy to add a link to your channel here!\n\n**About Mods**\n\nSince mods can affect how a world spawns and ores are distributed, as well as add or change items and functionality, it's important to make sure that we're all playing the same game by the same rules. For example, if one person's playing vanilla and someone else is playing with Bob's mods, even if they use the same seed and map settings you still couldn't very well say they were playing the same game, and the way they'd play would differ enormously.\n\nOn the other hand, playing with mods that either don't add any new items or change terrain, or that simply don't change the base game in a significant way, aren't going to change the way you solve problems or the kinds of problems you'll face themselves. As such, these sorts of mods are perfectly fine, even if some people are playing with them and some people aren't.\n\n[Even Distribution](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/321freddy/even-distribution) is a wonderful example of a mod that, while very useful, does not inherently change the way the game is played. Then there are also mods like [RadarPlus for RSO](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/kingarthur/radarplus%20for%20rso) that *do* add new items, but still don't really change the way the game is played.\n\nI've decided to put together a list of these optional mods that I think are ok to use on any map below. The list is by no means comprehensive; it simply serves as an example of the sorts of mods that should be fine.\n\n**Optional Mods**\n\nNote: I can't imagine any situation where this could be an issue, but if you're the author of one of the mods listed here (and can offer me some proof of this) and for whatever reason would like me to remove your mod from this post, I'd be happy to comply.\n\nIt's entirely possible some of these mods either don't work with the current version of Factorio, conflict with each other, or in some manner just don't work. I can't test them all, let alone every configuration of them, so you might want to back up your world before adding one of these.\n\n[Actual Craft Time](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Actual_Craft_Time)\n\n[Ammo Alerts](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Gun_Turret_Alerts)\n\n[Armor Plating](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/vtk-armor-plating)\n\n[Atomic Artillery](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/AtomicArtillery)\n\n[Auto Deconstruct](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/mindmix/AutoDeconstruct)\n\n[Auto Infinite Research](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/auto-infinite-research)\n\n[Automatic Underground Pipe Connectors (Continued)](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Automatic_Underground_Pipe_Connectors_Continued)\n\n[Bottleneck](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/trold/Bottleneck)\n\n[Caramelldansen Lab](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/party-lab)\n\n[Clock](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Bobingabout/clock)\n\n[Closest First Updated](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/ClosestFirstUpdated)\n\n[Color Coding](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/justarandomgeek/color-coding)\n\n[Companion Drones](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Companion_Drones)\n\n[Credo Time Lapse Mod 1.1](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/CredoTimeLapseModByGalapagon)\n\n[Dirt Path](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Dirt_Path)\n\n[Disco Science](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/DiscoScience)\n\n[Ekusplosion](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Ekusplosion)\n\n[Enhanced Map Colors](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/osldgoth/Enhanced_Map_Colors)\n\n[Even Distribution](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/321freddy/even-distribution)\n\n[EvoGUI](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Narc/EvoGUI)\n\n[Extended Descriptions](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/extended-descriptions)\n\n[FARL](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/Choumiko/FARL)\n\n[fCPU](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/fcpu)\n\n[FindMyBody](https://mods.factorio.com/mod/findmybody)\n\n[FNEI](https://mods.factorio.com/mods/npo6ka/FNEI)\n\n[Gah!

19 year old male. I had just turned 19 about a month ago, before that i made a post here about an old friend of mine betraying me. I brought him to the hospital after he nearly died, His mother made him say i caused his injury (it was a torn esophagus) I was mad and left. Then he tried telling me he was sorry for lying and wanted to still be friends. I said what he did was wrong and i would never do it. After that story i posted, Some of the people here said i should cut some slack and so i did.\n\nBefore my b-day i decided to contact him, I was blocked on all of his socials. He said even if i didn't want to be his friend it would still be cool to talk. I knew it was his mother, So i went to visit him in person. I went to his house with my friends and as i was pulling into his driveway. I saw a person running out the door. It was his mother and she was pissed. I crank down my window and she is screaming in my face "GET OFF MY FUCKING PROPERTY"\n\nCast: M = me | J = jake | A = Aaron | T = Tommy | M = Mark | EM = Entitled mother (all names are fake to keep things private and respectful)\n\nEM: GET OFF MY PROPERTY RIGHT NOW, MY HUSBAND IS A COP AND WILL ARREST FOR TRESPASSING!\n\nM: Listen here woman, Where is your son because i need to talk to him. Will you please calm down?\n\nA: It will only be a minute, We promise and when we are done, we will leave immediately.\n\nEM: You will not talk to my son at all, YOU HEAR ME?\n\nJake then comes out to see me and his mother "talking"\n\nJ: Mom whats goi- Rob? Is that you?\n\nM: Hi jake, I was just asking your mother if i cou-\n\nJ: Absolutely! Come on out, And mom? Can you leave us please?\n\nEM: You all have 5 minutes, Then i want you thugs gone.\n\nI bring him to the bed of my truck to show him a cupcake set in my tool chest. (Sounds sappy but at the moment i said screw it) He was happy and he asked "Yall forgive me?" Then i showed him to the front of the truck. Got down on my knee and gave him his favorite candy. Ring pop cherry. We all laughed and shook hands. EM Then came back and got real pissed.\n\nEM: Alright its been 5 minutes, Get out of here thugs.\n\nJ: mom, I am sick of your bullshit. Leave my friends alone and me as well.\n\nEM: What?\n\nJ: I saw rob text me offering to let me apologize, I was happy to see it. I decided to pack up and leave. I'm not coming back.\n\nEM: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?\n\nT: What he means is he wants to move out. Let him do so, Hes 20 years old. its his choice to make, Not yours.\n\nEM: BUT-\n\nA: Leave the kid be, He made his decision.\n\nJ: Bye mom, I hope you will understand.\n\nJake hops in my truck and we all leave, EM is shocked and never said a thing after that. Just 2 days ago, i got a call from his mother telling me she was sorry and wanted to see me and jake in person to talk. Jake said no, but i agreed saying, It should be ok. It was a good convo, We met up at a dunkin doughnuts. I gave my opinion and she took it great. She apologized and left.\n\nThen his father got mad at me, After being fired at worked. He blamed ME, I responded as nice as i can. "Look, Your son is 20. he is old enough to make his own decision. Leave him be please." He blocked me and i am still trying to get his stuff back from his parents. He was going to camp in my yard but i said "hell naw, I talked to my grandma. She wont mind you in the house. Just help out a bit and she wont mind"\n\nNow im making a plan within the next month or so. Me, Mark, jake, Tommy, Aaron will rent an apartment for a good amount of time with all the money we have. Its a decent sized apartment, 1 bed, 1 bath. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. Hopefully this should be all over soon and i hope this will end the drama.

                                                                                                                                                  The following post is the continuation of my [preparation process](https://www.reddit.com/r/Solo_Roleplaying/comments/two1pj/5e_scarlet_hero_preparation_and_necessary_for/) which I talked about earlier.When I first played my mash of 5e and Scarlet Heroes I didn't do it on camera, instead I wrote down all the rolls, while giving them some fictional flair. In a way my 5e game turned into Journal rpg, but the text itself is closer to what would you expect from Light Novel's I guess.\n\nI'm not sure I'm going to post all the entries from my journal, because I have a tendency to write about each roll in details, unless the community would be interested to read further.Which follows is an example of how can rolls be given a narrative flair.\n\nTo start out, after having a character and the possible outline of a setting (for me it was something a kin to Spelljammer but reflaffed somewhat through the vision of both Wizardry/Might and Magic fan and a Myst player)  I needed some connection between the two elements. How can we integrate the character and the setting? Honestly, I had no idea, that\031s why I rolled on Adventure Tags that can be found in Scarlet Heroes, sixty adventure ideas are divided between three labels: Urban Adventure, Wilderness Adventure and Dungeon Adventure. I decided to roll one die (d6) to see from which table should I roll.\n\n1-2 Urban\n\n3-4 Wilderness\n\n5-6 Dungeon.\n\nAnd I rolled \0342\035. Which is actually good. Because, Urban adventures is the most strong part of the Scarlet Heroes ruleset in my opinion. So I roll d20 on the Adventure chartAnd I got \03418\035 \023 "Feuding families"Hmm&\n\n**Any story has a beginning. This one in particular started with a roar of engines and a yell. Though the yell came up first.**\n\n**\034HAROOOOOOOOLD!\035**\n\n**That was the only sound which I wished I hadn\031t have to hear.**\n\n**The worst thing however, was not someone, actually, was screaming my name at the top of his lungs&**  \n\n***Yes, I\031m Harold, nice to meet you all, how are you all doing today?***\n\n**But I actually knew the one who was doing all the yelling.Ladies and gentlemen and, also readers, allow me to introduce you to my brother, - Ardet Kleid.**\n\n***And the only face I didn\031t wish to see that day.***\n\n**\034Yeh?\035 I could have just kept my trap shut, but instead, I indulged  him. He is my brother, after all. Well, somewhat&**\n\n**\034We\031ve got problem.\035**\n\n***\034We?\035***\n\n**\034Fine,** ***I\031ve*** **got problem!\035**\n\n**\034You don\031t say\035 In all honesty, I can\031t actually remember a single day when Ardet was not neck-deep in troubles. And nine out of ten it was because of the women.**\n\n**\034Who was she this time?\035**\n\n**\034That\031s& not really important.\035 The barkeep grunted and I chuckled. You see? With an attitude of such it\031s no wonder that everyone wants his head, again, women specifically.**\n\n**Nevertheless, he continued.**\n\n**\034What really matters is her** ***brother&*****\035**\n\n**I waited him to continue. Ardet, however, kept a dramatic pause. Damn his dramatics.**      \n\n **\034All right. I\031ll bite.** ***Who*** **is her brother?\035**\n\nWhile I was preparing for the adventure I've prepared a d66 table of random threats, whitch I called "BANG". \n\nI used it to find out who was Ardet running from.I got "snake eyes" - a roll of 11   \n\n**The roar of engines was the answer to my question. Though, I didn\031t think much of it at the time. In fact, I didn\031t look in my brother\031s eyes during the conversation. All my being, honestly, was interested in the stake that was oh so very close but out of reach in the hands of barkeep.**\n\n**\034Oh, not this again&\035** \n\n**The voice of a barkeep sounded both annoyed and desperate with her looking outside the window.**\n\n**\034Someone you don\031t want to see?\035**\n\n**\034Something I** ***wish*** **I didn\031t have to see anymore\035** \n\n**She turned her head acknowledging my presence. It took her afew seconds to register that she was still holding my order.**\n\n**\034Oh, sorry&\035** \n\n**Finally a plate with a steaming meat was right under my nose.**\n\n**\034Enjoy\035I was way ahead of her. I dig in as a hungry wolf.**\n\n**\034Mfankf!\035 I ate almost nothing yesterday for a whole day, so forgive me my lack of manners.** \n\n**That\031s precisely what barkeep did. If anything, she looked amused watching me butchering the meat. Even if she was far away in her thoughts. The same went to other patrons. They all looked at the door expecting the worst to come.And the worst announced its arrival kicking down the door. There were four of them walking into the bar, tough looking, sporting black leather. And louder that a pack of hunting dogs that got the scent of the fox.** **Speaking of the fox... I looked both sides, lazily. No trace of him, of course. He may be an idiot but not stupid enough to stand there and wait his certain death.**\n\nI gave Harold a chance to find where Ardet was Hiding.\\[Roll Ardet - Stealth: d20 + 3 = 4 vs. Harold\031s Passive Perception of 14\\]\n\n**I bet, he was hiding behind the barkeeps counter. Could have thought of something better, honestly&**\n\nThe roll of 11 on the "BANG" chart ment that a group of astral bikers walks into the bar.Then I roll for amount of people that entered the bar. I rolled 2d4 and got 4 (2+2)The next thing I do is ask the Orcale if that's all of them.\n\n\\[Is that all of them (Unknown)? Oracle answer: d20 = 3 \023 No!\\]\n\nThe next logical thing is to find out how many of them out there on the street, I roll 1d4 and get "4". Of course.\n\nThe next thing to determine is the attitude of the gang or rather their leader using the chart of Initial Attitude of Non-player character. Whom I detemined to be "Unfriendly".\n\nRoll of 2d6 gives me the result of "3" - Anger/Scorn. But of course.\n\n**\034Where is he?!\035 Roared the gang leader.**\n\n**\034Wferf fho?\035** \n\n**Too late I understood that I\031ve should have kept my mouth shut. Now I have their full and utmost attention.**\n\nHere I decided that Harold must roll his Sanity Save: d20 + 1. The result was "8". \n\nHe couldn't keep his mouth shut. \n\nI also concluded that this was a good oportunity to give the biker gang leader some personality. \n\n\\[Roll on NPC Table d20: 9 = Human Tribes\\]\n\n\\[Roll on Tribal Table d20: 17 = En'ma\\]\n\n\\[Roll on Age Table d4: 2 = Young and Vigorous\\]\n\nI also rolled if he was willing to answer Harold's question. \n\nAnd he may be angry towards Ardet but he sees Harold for the first time, so to the Gang Leader Harold is a "Stranger"\n\n\\[Roll on Initial Attitude Table of Strangers: 2d6 = 10 = Full Agreement\\]\n\n**The leader nailed me to my stool with his gaze& A young man, somewhere around my age. I couldn\031t help but notice the markings on the face. A pair of simple lines on cheekbones, customary to Enma. I\031ll be honest it was strange to see one of his kind choosing metal and oil over the tree, bone and water.**\n\n**\034A red haired** ***pul\031he***\\*\\*. \n\nThe ashface sports a ponytail, wears green. Has a nasty scar on the neck\035\n\n\\*\\**I waited about ten seconds swallowing a very big bite* *before* *answering as honestly as I could.*\n\n\\[Roll Harold \023 Deception: d20 + 0: 17 vs Astral Biker\031s Insight 10\\]\n\n**\034Can\031t say I did, sorry.\035 I turned to the barkeep.\034What about you? Have you seen him?\035**\n\n**The only one eye of hers that was not covered by her braids looked at me judgmentally.**\n\n**\034No. No, I haven\031t.\035 She was good she was even able to control her tail the only thing that could give her away.**\n\n**\034Are you sure you saw him?\035 The gang leader turned to one of his crownies.**\n\n**\034He should have. I mean, there are not many places where he could hide\035**\n\n**Still something not convinced he scanned the tavern like a bloodhound. It was the time to distract him somewhat.**\n\n**\034So, what this guy did anyway?\035**\n\n\\[Roll Harold Persuasion with Advantage: d20 = 8 and 10 vs Astral Biker\031s Insight 10\\] \n\nSince the barkeep and the tavern patrons decided to play along with Harold and his bluff, I decided to give character an advantage on this roll. And the next roll is very important because it determines what kind of city adventure (investigation) Harold will have go through.\n\n\\[Roll Urban Adventure Hook: d8 = 7 = **The Target faces a Calamity due to a crime committed by an Untouchable Antagonist**\\]\n\nNext thing I roll is a kind of crime which Ardet is accused of, using d6. And I got "3" - A theft.\n\nAnd to determine what kind of theft we are talking about, \n\nI roll d8, which gives me the result of "8" - "A theft of secret"\n\nNow, what kind of secret can the sister of gang leader have...\n\nHmmm...\n\n\\*\\*\034\\*\\****IT*** **stole my sister\031s name\035It took almost me the whole minute for this accusation to sink in. In a complete almost graveyard-like silence.**\n\n**\034Oh&\035**\n\n**\034Exactly. The trash like him should not breath\035**\n\n**\034I. Agree.\035**\n\nI decided to give biker a chance to find Ardet. Surprisingly, his roll was even worse than Ardets.\\[Roll Astral Biker Perception d20+0 = 3 vs Ardet Stealth: 4\\]\n\n**The gang leader cast a final glance at the tavern before signaling his flunkies to move out. But not before addressing me again.**\n\n**\034You, Greyhaired! Should you stumble upon this filth&\035**\n\n**I nod knowingly.**\n\n**\034You\031ll be the first one to know. Heck, I might even kill him myself. To save you the trouble.\035**\n\n**\034No, he\031s mine.\035** \n\n**The way he said it made it clear that he was serious about being the first to deal with him. \034But I appreciate the gesture. Didn\031t catch your name, though\035**\n\n**\034It\031s Harold\035**\n\nOne quick roll on the table of En'mas names and I ended up with result of "8" \n\n**\034Shan.\035** \n\n**And with that he left the tavern.Soon we heard a roar of engines soon to fade. The barkeep and the patrons were only happy to breath out. I couldn\031t allow myself such luxury.In one swift moment I jumped from my chair, bend over the counter and grabbed Ardet\031s collar of the jacket.**\n\n**\034We. Need. To talk&\035**\n\nAnd this is where I end this lengthy introduction and also this post.
