2023.03.25 11:35 NextAdvance2976 Edoryä homebrew campaign setting: #1 (world basics)

Hi reddit! I've been playing a Dungeons and Dragons campaign in a homebrew campaign setting for over two years. So I just thought it would be nice for you and for me to share with you what I already know about my world. (Maybe this post also has a place on the Worldbuilding subreddit?) This post will be released in several parts which should arrive in the following days. Hoping that you like it !
What is Edoryä?
Edoryä is the name given by the elves to the Material Plane but which was then taken up by almost all other cultures to designate the World. It's a rich and expansive High Fantasy world (a bit darker in places) with late medieval technology. Many different kingdoms and dozens of unique races spanned the four continents of Dovania, Ta'nari, Atane, Ukrai, and Ikza. Edoryä is full of fantastic environments: from the black sand desert of Chur'muzzor, through the skyland of Zynx, to the mountains of the Dragon's Teeth and so on. Come and discover the 230 playable races offered by this campaign setting, the hundreds of kingdoms, a unique magic system and a rich and epic History.
Originally there were three primordial goddesses: Izra (Isis), Avoree (Hera), and Larone (Hella). These three sister goddesses have spawned the three families of gods: the House of Dawn, the House of Noon, and the House of Twilight, which then make up all the other deities descended from the three goddesses. The Church of Dawn, the Church of Noon and the Church of Twilight are the three most powerful and widespread religious forces (at least on the continent of Dovania) but many other pantheons exist and more or less coexist peacefully (the Elvish Triad, the House of the Anvil and the Hammer, or even the Celestial Bureaucracy). The gods live in the Outer Planes that make up the multiverse (see below in the post) but some minor deities like the demigods have a home on the Material Plane. Finally there are also certain entities that do not fit into any pantheons, the Elemental Gods, the Great Old Ones, the Arch Fairies, the terrifying Demon Lords, the vile Archdevils or the ignoble Pandaemons. The different cults have engaged in many holy wars in history to bring more power to their divinity because the truth and that the gods and goddesses draw their divine power from the veneration that brings them mortals. Some deities in the past have not been able to attract enough worshipers to become a god worthy of the name, some of these failed gods have at best become great spirits or protective saints, at worst they have simply ceased to exist.
Magic and types of Magic
In Edoryä magic is rare and can be very dangerous if not properly wielded. Some individuals called "awakened" are able to use magic as they please, but often this comes at a price. Magic also imbues certain objects and places some creatures are able to wield magic naturally. The Awakened's birth percentage rate depends entirely on their race (elves for example are more prone to magic than orcs) and place of birth. In order not to have to rewrite all the spells of D&D 5e, I have for the moment decided to take their model of the types of magic, by adding several other types.

I will detail the rest of this campaign setting in other posts, this was just an introduction. I hope this has made you want to know more about Edoryä.

2023.03.25 11:34 coraloc1ch52 Network Security and Threat Prevention


Network security is the process of protecting your network from attack. It's a lot more complicated than just installing antivirus software on all of your devices, but it's also more important than ever. Today, our digital lives are so intertwined with each other that we can't even tell where one ends and another begins--and that's not going to change anytime soon! So let's talk about what makes up a secure network:

What is network security?

Network security is the process of protecting a network from various threats. It is a subset of information security, which in turn is part of your overall risk management strategy.

Network security involves protecting your company’s data, applications, and services from external threats (for example, hackers) as well as internal ones (for example, insider threats).

What is threat prevention?

Threat prevention is the process of identifying and blocking malicious traffic. It's reactive, not proactive. The best way to understand threat prevention is by thinking of it as a continuous process: once a threat has been identified, you need to act on it immediately—and then keep doing so in the future.

A good example of this would be an email phishing scheme that uses social engineering techniques (e.g., sending an email promising high-paying jobs) with links to malicious websites where users are asked for personal information like their credit card numbers or passwords so they can get paid big bucks if they give them up.

Why should I care about network security?

Why should you care about network security?

Your business. Network security is important for your reputation and customer loyalty, as well as employee productivity. When employees are vulnerable to malicious attacks on the network, they may choose not to come into work—or even leave the company altogether! Once an attacker has access through one victim's computer, other victims could become infected as well. In addition to being costly in terms of money lost due to downtime and lost productivity (as mentioned above), this can also create negative publicity that could harm your brand image if customers find out about it through social media channels like Facebook or Twitter.

Privacy concerns: If a hacker were able to steal data from someone's computer without them knowing it was happening, this could pose serious risks for both individual privacy concerns as well as national security issues if sensitive information such as military secrets are exposed due to lack of protection measures put in place by organizations within certain companies' networks systems administrators will be required by law enforcement agencies such as Homeland Security Department Office Of Inspector General; Federal Bureau Of Investigation; Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigative Division ; Customs And Border Patrol ; Drug Enforcement Administration Special Operations Division

Reputation management: From personal accounts like Facebook & Instagram accounts where users post pictures & videos featuring themselves doing activities such as eating lunch at restaurants together with friends/family members without anyone else knowing what happened behind closed doors except those involved (usually parents); holding parties where alcohol consumption occurs freely within reach distance from everyone else present - including children under age 21 years old who might not yet know how dangerous this behavior can be when combined with drugs like marijuana which causes symptoms similar to alcohol intoxication but has different effects on brain chemistry leading most people involved

How do I know if my network is secure?

What is a good security posture?

A good security posture is one that protects your data and network from unauthorized access, misuse and destruction. It also provides the tools you need to manage these threats.

What is an insecure network?

An insecure network has vulnerabilities in its design or implementation that allow an attacker to compromise it. An example would be if someone were able to gain access to your computer with the help of malware on their own device (e.g., smartphone) because they didn't have any protection installed on their own device; this could mean that all they would have needed was access codes for Facebook or Twitter accounts!

Your network as a security is only as secure as you make it, so start using it!

Network security is a process, not an event. Network security is a continuous process that you must maintain in order to keep your network secure.

As you build and maintain your network, it will become more secure over time because the more you use it and the better you understand what makes up a good network, the more likely it is that malicious actors won't be able to compromise its security.


You can protect your network from threats by using the right tools like NaaS for the job. We've discussed some of the best practices for network security in this article, but we hope it will also help you to implement them at your own company.

2023.03.25 11:33 Grafiada Accepted July waiting for class date.

I would like to start off by stating this is my opinion.
United Aviate is a new program. Being accepted is a privilege on its own, but with that of course it’s reasonable to feel frustrated with the waiting. I feel as though that people went into this with a timeline and plan set up in their heads when they got their (conditional) acceptance by aviate and now that it’s not going according to plan they are getting frustrated.
I think it’s important that we show better maturity and patience in regards to the words and post that are being placed as it is in no one’s intentions to make anyone wait. I’m sure they are working as best as they can to get everyone into the school and have them eventually take their first flight as a paid employee at united.
It can be good to use this blog as a source of information and questions or concerns we have that we can all help each other with. I know when I read the emails sometimes I can be uncertain about the meaning of something so I then check on this page.
I just don’t think that it’s helpful to constantly talk or demean the program we are all eagerly waiting to start in. I also don’t think it looks good on us to be so negative or demanding towards a program of their future employer.
Don’t get me wrong I’m right there with all of you on being at the edge of my seat waiting to get a class date, but I think there is a classier way of conveying our questions and concerns.
I hope everyone could understand where I’m coming from and understand what I’m trying to say. So with that I can’t wait to see all of you at the school sometime!

2023.03.25 11:33 Comprehensive-Set865 My gf (F22) of almost 3 years has a filthy house and she (and her family members) barely cleans it/kaya nila tiisin nang matagal. I (F23) don’t know what to do anymore.

My gf and I have been together for almost 3 years now. I love her very much and I actually think she’s the love of my life. There’s only one thing that I absolutely can’t stand about her and it’s how awfully disgusting their house is. I live pretty far from her which is why whenever I visit I tend to sleepover for a week max especially during the lockdowns before. Whenever I visit I can’t help but cringe because of how dirty everything is. She lives with her mom and two younger brothers and they currently have 8 dogs.
Just to give you guys a visualization of how messy it is I’ll lay out in detail what you’ll see on a regular day once you go inside their house just so everyone knows I’m not exaggerating: as soon as you open the front door stench of dog shit and pee will hit you like a truck, their living room floor is filled with it and it sometimes extends to the dining and kitchen area. The sink in the kitchen will probably be stacked with unorganized dirty dishes which sometimes extends to the counter tops as well. The dining table and the kitchen island is filled with spilled watefood debris and leftover food. The refrigerator is unorganized and filled with leftover food that hasn’t been touched or reheated in days. Even the kitchen cabinets and the walls (which are white) are stained with grime/brownish stuff. Once you go upstairs to where the bedrooms are, the hallway is also filled with poop and pee and carcasses of whatever it is the dogs decided to rip up and play with (e.g. comforters, the loofah from their bathroom, cardboard boxes, plastic bottles etc.). The bathrooms (which have no locks and doorknobs) are filled with wet dog fur and random stuff that the dogs destroyed since they like hanging out there. The living room is basically inhabitable because of how there’s constantly poop everywhere and things are scattered everywhere. I also have a hard time eating at their dining room most of the time because of how I can see and smell all the dog shit and pee (I asked her once if they were used to it that it doesn’t bother them and she said yes) . They’d only clean it once a week or sometimes even longer than that so just imagine how much dog shit and pee accumulates. The dogs are also very filthy and are only given baths once or twice a month and I even saw one drink water directly from the toilet bowl. They also love playing around in the bathroom and get all wet and muddy. I used to consider myself a dog lover since growing up, my family and I loved adopting strays and take care of them (I currently have 2 dogs, both potty trained and regularly bathed) back at home who I love very much. But seeing how they let the dogs get so dirty and shit everywhere and anywhere, I can’t even bear to pet them or go near them. They used to only have 2 adult dogs: a husky which can only be bathed once a month apparently and a golden that stinks most of the time and is barely given a bath as well, but then the husky gave birth to 6 puppies which made everything worse of course. Even way before when they only had one dog, the house had rats because of how messy everything was. The only time I saw the house get really clean was when they re-hired a house helper that used to work for them in one of the houses they’ve lived in before. Now that that helper left, everything is back to shit again. Literrally. They originally planned on selling the puppies which is such a relief since there’d be less poop around but then they decided to keep 2 so now there’d still be 4 dogs that aren’t potty trained.
I would always try to help out by doing the dishes, cleaning after myself, giving the dogs a bath whenever they’d allow me to, cleaning her room (the only place in the house I could stand since the dogs don’t go in there when I visit so there’s no dog poop and pee), etc. I also used to sweep and mop the floor before they had so many dogs but I can’t now because I hate the smell of dog shit and pee (my gf also knows this). I don’t know what to feel anymore because even though I am very much turned off from how dirty everything is in their house, I feel bad because I know that most of the time my gf is the only person who cooks and clean in their house. Her two brothers are still young (16 and 13 y/o) and they can’t be relied on much when it comes to chores, her mom is a single mom working 2 or more jobs most of the time which is why she also can’t look after the house most of the time. In out house we never had a house helper but we managed just fine which is why I was also shocked when I first saw how messy and filthy their house was.
The only reason why I am asking for advice here on reddit only now even though it’s already been 2 years of this is because before, I would only visit so I only had to bear with it for a week max and go back to my clean and comfortable home. However, something recently happened with my family and I (too long of a story to include here) which is why in the meantime I am living with my gf in her house just until I can work things out and find a place of my own. I feel like such an asshole to even complain about this and I would understand if people here call me one too since my gf and her family welcomed me in their home and I know how hard it must be for my gf since she’s currently stressed about college as well. Again, I still try to help out by doing the all dishes everyday, cleaning her bedroom, mopping and sweeping the floor when it isn’t covered by poop, etc. But I really can’t stand it anymore and even if I do find a place of my own already, I know I’d still be visiting her from time to time since it’s always been that way in our relationship (I visit her more than she visits me) so the problem would still be there. Please help me because I really don’t know what to do anymore.
TL;DR: I am now temporarily living with my gf of almost 3yrs. but I can’t stand how filthy their house is even when I try my best to help out and I don’t know what to do anymore.
Sidenote: this is my first time using/posting here on reddit so please forgive me for any mistakes I might’ve made. Thank you

2023.03.25 11:31 Delasong Unsafe case progression?

My spouse and I were placed with our first foster child last year, at the time he was 10 mo old, severely malnourished and on a feeding tube. Bio parents had to complete a 24 hour pcu stay but failed to do so. During their stay they demonstrated they were able to successfully set up and operate the feeding tube and pump, however would never do more than 1 feeding consecutively, and were actively lying and trying to convince the nurses not to feed him. There's a language barrier and parenting classes were waived as well as a psych eval. We have a document in which the hospital stated the child will be repeatedly hospitalized or die if he remains in the care of the parents. The only training or education that's been provided to bio parents is how to operate the feeding tube and pump. We've pointed this out to our case worker multiple times over the past year as well as the GAL and there's been no follow up to offer the parents any sort of extra information or training. Last year our case worker mentioned to us the GAL had never conducted an investigation into this case. The current plan for reunification is to start expanding visits then move to overnight visits and just hope for the best.

2023.03.25 11:30 beansiesrule I get to watch my family travel the world while I stay at home

I have an odd family dynamic. It’s not super wild, but my parents divorced when I was really young and since then both of them remarried. My stepmom and dad live a normal middle class life, but my mom decided to marry up.
I don’t have an issue with this but her choice in men has always been… shitty. My stepdad likes me, but I think in a more he tolerates me kind of way. I don’t think he prefers my company. Which honestly, I don’t care. He’s an alcoholic so whatever.
My issue is just more on my… I guess jealousy of my mom, stepdad, and stepsister. My stepsister obviously grew up with her dad so he was able to give her things and live in a big house. I have no issue with my stepsister and love her to death, I’m so glad she’s in my life. But I do get jealous of the things she’s able to do and I dont.
My stepdad often travels for business and brings my mom. They’ve been to Australia, France, Germany, etc. I am very jealous as I love to travel, but I know there’s not much I can do about it… The part that just sucks the most for me is my stepsister being able to also go with them places.
She travels to France because that is where her mom’s side of the family is from. So I can’t be truly mad about the fact she gets to travel to Europe because it’s for her family, but my mom gets to go with too and stepdad. It’s rare my stepsister goes without my mom also being there. I don’t know… I know it’s just my jealousy because I wish I could travel, and I know my sister only goes because something is usually wrong with the family out there…
Every spring break, my family goes to Florida and I have never been invited once. My family says it’s because I wouldn’t like the things they do. They also said this when they went to Costa Rica and didn’t invite me. “You would’ve hated it”. Well… I guess I would’ve… glad I got a choice…
I just feel like I’ve been forced to be an adult way before my sister. I’m 3 years older than her and I’ve graduated college, but even when I was in college I never got invited anywhere but she does… I just went to school and worked. I just have too many complaints. I’m currently going through a bunch of health issues which made me leave my dream job so I’m stuck at my other parents home doing nothing all day every day so I think I’m just extra salty and in my feelings all the time… oh well.

2023.03.25 11:29 Ok_Challenge4753 Landing Page Design and Development for NFT Drops and Tokens

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are a type of digital asset that has become increasingly popular in recent years. They are unique and indivisible tokens that are used to represent ownership of digital assets such as art, music, and other forms of creative content. With the growing demand for NFTs, many businesses and individuals are looking to capitalize on the trend by offering NFT drops and tokens. To make the most of this opportunity, it is important to have an effective landing page design and development strategy in place.
Understanding Your Target Audience
Before starting the design and development of your landing page, it is important to understand your target audience. This includes understanding their interests, preferences, and needs. Knowing your target audience will help you create a landing page that is tailored to their specific needs, making it more effective in converting visitors into customers.
Creating a Compelling Value Proposition
A value proposition is a statement that explains the unique benefits of your product or service. It is important to create a compelling value proposition that resonates with your target audience. This will help you differentiate yourself from competitors and convince potential customers to choose your NFT drops and tokens.
Designing an Eye-Catching Landing Page
The design of your landing page is critical in attracting and retaining visitors. A well-designed landing page should be visually appealing, easy to navigate, and provide all the necessary information about your NFT drops and tokens. It should also include clear calls-to-action (CTAs) that encourage visitors to take the desired action, such as purchasing your NFTs.
Optimizing for Conversion
The ultimate goal of your landing page is to convert visitors into customers. To achieve this, it is important to optimize your landing page for conversion. This includes using clear and concise messaging, using high-quality visuals, and creating effective CTAs. You should also use A/B testing to experiment with different landing page designs and content to see what works best.
Providing Social Proof
Social proof is a powerful tool that can help increase trust and credibility with potential customers. Including customer reviews, testimonials, and endorsements on your landing page can help build social proof and encourage visitors to make a purchase.
Ensuring Responsive Design
With more and more people using mobile devices to browse the internet, it is important to ensure that your landing page is optimized for mobile devices. This means using responsive design to ensure that your landing page looks and functions correctly on all devices.
Incorporating SEO Best Practices
Search engine optimization (SEO) is an important aspect of landing page design and development. To ensure that your landing page is visible to potential customers, it is important to incorporate SEO best practices such as using relevant keywords, optimizing meta tags, and ensuring fast page load times.
Designing and developing an effective landing page for NFT drops and tokens requires a thorough understanding of your target audience, a compelling value proposition, eye-catching design, optimization for conversion, social proof, responsive design, and SEO best practices. By following these tips, you can create a landing page that effectively promotes your NFT drops and tokens and drives conversions.

2023.03.25 11:28 TheLewisJ 30(M) Awaiting Diagnosis in the UK

I recently discovered this subreddit (and autism) and the more I these posts, the more I’m like wow this has been there forever and how did nobody see it?!
I’m a 30 year old male, currently unemployed having recently dropped out of my third year of University. I have always found life so overwhelming and I’ve been been able to stick to anything. I’ve walked away from so many opportunities and in my head I’ve just deemed myself to be ‘incompatible’ with living ‘normally’. I’ll start something and then very quickly it becomes too much, I burn out and walk out.
I dropped out of school at 14-15 and I spent two years in my bedroom immersed in a virtual world (Second Life) and that’s the most comfortable I have ever felt in life. I didn’t have to live up to any expectations and was free to be who I was inside. Now as an adult, I can’t really avoid these things and my life is just becoming difficult to manage because I’m not making any money. I thankfully still have my parents support and live with them, but they would much rather me contribute or have my own life im sure.
I live in the UK and my parents are going to pay for me to see a psychiatrist privately as the NHS waiting list is pretty long. I’ve spoken to my mum about this and she agreed that i likely do have autism and that many things about me as a child, teen and adult would make a lot of sense if that were the case.
I feel bad for them because my symptoms (or traits) can be very over the top and I’m trying my absolute best to react differently to things. I came off SSRIs recently (slow taper) and some things are better, and others worse. I get very irritated at things, I’m very snappy and I will throw things (I’m sometimes mid throwing or hitting something and I’m like ‘stop!’). My masking is also unreal at 30…I’m the most monotone speaker with 0 interest in others conversations, but I can’t act like the most charismatic and confident person and I don’t even recognise my own voice/self sometimes. It’s crazy what our brains can learn to do to survive! I can present very neurotypical but sometimes it slips and people are so confused! Can’t always be perfect.
I guess this isn’t really me asking a question, but more so me just telling people that understand where I’m at in life! I’m happy to discuss other traits I have or anything really! I’d love to make some other friends with ASD, but I’m not sure this is the place - any recommendations?
Thank you for reading!

2023.03.25 11:27 Schele_Sjakie The miracle of Biniam Girmay, one year later: 'Cobblestones? That's what I faced when I came to Europe'

The miracle of Girmay, one year later: 'Cobblestones? That's what I faced when I came to Europe'

March 27, 2022: the day that changed Biniam Girmay's life forever. The Eritrean caused a shock wave of amazement in the cycling world by taking an immediate win at his first participation in Gent-Wevelgem. One year later, In de Leiderstrui spoke at length with the barely 22-year-old rider ahead of Wevelgem.
Girmay had just finished a reconnaissance when he made time for the press. As it turned out, that lap of the course was the first in a long time. ''To be honest, it's the first time I really do my training in Flanders and get to know the courses. Last season I started without any reconnaissance, but this year is different,'' the African stated. 'I have the time to get to know the courses with some good riders around me. This is also important for the future because it is still only my second year in these races,' he points out.
All the more special is the fact that on his first Flemish passage last year, Girmay finished fifth in the E3 Saxo Classic and won Gent-Wevelgem. 'If you just start riding without knowing the course, that might be a disadvantage, but we are working on that with the team. I don't know the names of the climbs yet, but I'm starting to remember them. The Koppenberg for example; they told me they use it for cyclocross too,' laughs the man from Asmara, Eritrea.
Girmay: 'I didn't grow up with cobblestones, I was confronted with them here'
Girmay points out that he hasn't reached his limit yet. 'Last year I suddenly achieved good results, but I still have a lot to improve,' he keeps both feet on the ground. 'The expectations are sometimes very high, but then people perhaps forget my age and experience. I didn't grow up with cobblestones, I was confronted with them when I came to Europe. It was something totally different for me.'
So whether expectations are too high for a barely 22-year-old guest from another continent? 'Not for myself, because I just do my best. So it doesn't change anything for me, also because I have a nice team behind me. I'm not pushed or forced over my limits, they give me good advice and understand me.' He gets that advice from Mike Teunissen, among others, about whom he spoke respectfully.
So again, Girmay doesn't want to go too fast. 'I still have many years to improve, I have yet to ride my first Tour de France, for example. The most important thing is that I really enjoy racing. I really liked the cobblestones last year, I felt very good on them. That's important, because I hear a lot of other guys that they don't like it at all,' he laughed. 'You feel that the Tour of Flanders, for example, is something different to participate in. The other riders from Eritrea, for example, didn't even participate,' he refers to Daniel Teklehaimot, among others.
While last year it was nice weather on the weekend of E3 and Wevelgem, this year the predicted conditions point completely the other way: rain and wind. For Girmay, it's not an immediate advantage. ''I think I am better in bad weather than last year, because I already did some races in the rain at the beginning of this season. Now I feel more used to be, but I have to be. After all, we are in Belgium. So I'm ready for it, but whether I like it? No, I just have to get used to it.'
Girmay is still often reminded of Gent-Wevelgem 2022
All in all, he still often thinks back - whether forced or not - to that one day in March last year. 'It maybe just gives a little more confidence, because now I feel even more eager to return.' Gent-Wevelgem was the big moment in my life, so I'll be reminded of that. For the team it will also be special, also because of the story of Antoine (Demoitié, who died in the race in 2016, ed.) . So again, I'm really looking forward to it.
'The story of Gent-Wevelgem is always in my head,' Girmay said. 'People tell it to me, whether I'm going home, riding in the peloton or standing on a starting podium somewhere. As a result, I often get nice feelings about it. People look at me differently now, but for myself almost nothing has changed.'
The Intermarché-Circus-Wanty leader is a highly regarded man at the start of the classic this year, but has not yet been able to compete for the win in races such as Milan-Sanremo. 'The legs on the Poggio hurt, like everyone else's. It's always like that, it just hurts after 290 kilometers. I was happy with it. I wasn't in top form yet, but after Sanremo it will always be better," said the man who finished 18th in La Primavera.
'We haven't had races in Belgium where they were all competing, so it's hard to say who the real top favorites are,' Girmay shrouds himself in the mist when it comes to the competition. 'We don't know who is good, we will see that next weekend in E3 and Wevelgem. I am also mainly concerned with myself, then in the races we will see who is good. Right now everyone is in good shape, so it will be interesting to see how things go in the Flemish races. It's different than Milan-Sanremo," he said.

2023.03.25 11:26 Uma2308 The longest rant about red flag guy

I just want to rant because I am in a very frustrated mood....
2-3 months ago I started talking to this 30yo man, C, on a dating app (i am 27f). I clearly stated in my profile that i am poly/non-monogamous (because a lot of people over here in the Netherlands don't know what polyamory is). We texted every now and then, he said he is fine with me being poly but avoided questions about his preferred relationship structure. That should have been a red flag, but both of us aren't the best texters, the topic got lost over time. We eventually met up IRL. I brought up the polyamory topic again, turns out he thought that 'Poly' is my nickname and 'non-monogamous' means I just want to have casual sex and no commitment with EVERYBODY????? I kindly explained to him what polyamory is and what I am looking for. He shared that he has never loved someone except his mom... He has had some girlfriends but never felt love towards any of these women (mind you, he is 30!!!)
I told him that I did not want to date him. However, we had some common interests, we are both relatively new to this town without many friends, and he wants to learn Dutch while I want to learn Spanish (his native language). We agreed to stay in touch and see if we can stay friends. We met a few times after that, practised our languages, generally had fun.
Earlier this week I played board games with my ex, with a girl that i just started dating and her boyfriend. We had a great evening. C texted me asking how my evening had been so I told him about the board game evening. He wanted to know who was there, I explained. He said 'that's so weird that you are still friends with your ex'. I got annoyed, we had a tiny discussion with him saying it's a red flag if you're still friends with an ex and me saying it's a red flag if you're friends with none of your exes. Also, why would it matter to him because C and I agreed to only be friends anyway.
I felt frustrated about that for the rest of the week but we had already agreed to go to our town's food hall yesterday. I thought it would probably be good to see him IRL after the 'arguing' over text. However, we ended up in 3 other arguments:
- He told me that he had been on a date with this girl. The next day, she invited him to watch a movie at his place, while immediately giving a disclaimer 'this is not a hookup'. He went over, they watched a movie, smooked weed, and then she said 'when i smoke weed I enjoy cuddling, would you cuddle with me?'. He cuddled with her and then tried to kiss her. She rejected his kiss and he told her that he is not gonna cuddle with someone who won't kiss him. He left. She (obviously!) does not want to see him again. He ranted to me how cuddling is more intimate than kissing or having sex and how she gave off mixed signals. I told him that i thought her communication had been very clear: she wanted cuddles, no sex. Also i pointed out that sex to most people is a lot more intimate than cuddling. He disagreed saying that sex can be without emotions but cuddling is something that leads to commitment. Seriously, what is wrong with some cis heterosexual men?!?!
- Then he told me that after dinner him and I were going out. I told him no, he asked me to go out for dinner only, I had had a rough week at work and wasn't planning on going clubbing/partying, I wanted to be in bed by 11 at the latest. He said I had agreed to going out. I said: Yes I agreed to coming to this food hall that closes at 10.30. He said that going out after that was implied. I said no and I don't want to. He said that I am 'so typically dutch' and 'no fun' and 'if I want to move to spain i have to learn to live a little'. Then he said we will go out tomorrow. I told him "no, i am going out with my close friend tomorrow and want to have some quality time with her alone". He insisted, I kept saying no. Ten he said we should go out on Tuesday. I also have plans with other people on Tuesday, he said he could just come along too, I told him "no, I am going with two friends, ...." and here again he kept insisting... I told him "I want to leave now because you are not respecting my 'no' and I am starting to feel frustrated"
He said he would stop and that I was exaggarating. I thought back to a conversation I had with someone else earlier this week that years ago I tended to have some avoidant attachement style characteristics where I would leave/ghost people after a conflict and how lately that behaviour has been coming back a little. I decided to give him another chance and stay for desert. C asked me where I usually go out and said he loves this bar P. I told him I don't like P because it's full of predatory men and that I get groped there every time when I leave my group of friends to go to the bathroom or to the bar. He said: "Well at least you're not getting groped when you are with your group of friends". I asked him: "what do you mean with that?". He said: "It's normal to get groped in every club in every part of the world, I would never do that myself but it happens everywhere, and if it's just when you are walking around the club it's not that bad" I told him that groping is assault and he said "Maybe, but the reality is that it will just happen everywhere so you better accept it instead of letting it ruin your evening"
At that point i felt this huge rage but more than anything I felt like I could cry and I did not want him to see me in a vulnerable position like that. I told him I wanted to leave and I went home. I woke up many times during the night because I was just so angry and disgusted. I know this guy is a walking red flag and still it angers me so much that people like him exist, especially since he was super nice in the beginning and I thought he would be a nice friend. I honestly cannot believe that people like this exist. I will text him today that I don't want to see him anymore. I don't know to what extent I should give him an explanation for that since he will probably think I am crazy anyway. Advice on that topic is welcome! Lesson I learned for myself: having a baadddddd feeling about someone doesn't always relate to having had avoidant attachment issues in the past, sometimes it's completely fine to ban someone from your life after some arguments about topics (consent, communication, boundaries) that are so important to me.

Chapter 4: Best Laid Plans
I was pacing about my bedroom when I should have been dreaming about tomorrow's breakfast.
Behind my window, the moon was so large that it almost seemed to be watching over my antics. With few clouds to block its view, it had every balcony seat in the theatre to be entertained by my relentless strides as I shuttled back and forth from my wardrobe to my mirror.
Yes, I was currently making one of the hardest decisions of my life.
“Bright colours will suit spring and summer, but will look gaudy come autumn. Dark colours are more forgiving, but will make me appear aloof and unapproachable ...”
It was deciding what to wear for my journey ahead.
That's right! I will restore our kingdom's finances through whatever means possible! And that meant … leaving my bedroom!
It was plain to me that I could no longer ride on the coat-tails of my family. My mother, father and siblings were all striving towards the kingdom's prosperity. I, alone, cannot bear the shame of inaction. Especially if inaction meant looming poverty!
How could this situation have transpired? Were our fields not verdant and green? Were our forests not ancient and tall? Were our mines not deep and bountiful? From the shores of our western bay to the mountains of our eastern hinterlands, the Kingdom of Tirea was awash with resources that were the envy of the world over!
How, then, did things come to be so dire?
Civil unrest, deteriorating security, organised crime, border skirmishes, rebellion, failing industries, loss of merchant shipping … I couldn't imagine what succession of travesties had occurred that would cause so much to go wrong. And I didn't intend to find out by meekly sitting in my room and begging for answers.
No … I could no longer rely on others. This was a crisis I must solve. My very ability to pretend I enjoyed escargots au beurre persillé while stealthily tossing it beneath the table depended on it.
I came to an abrupt halt. I was putting the cart before the horse. It was very important, true, but before I decided what I wore, I needed to decide on what I wanted to do and where I was going.
To start with, then ... a step-by-step action plan!
Step 1: Discover what wrongs are plaguing this kingdom, and fix everything!
The clock by my mantle ticked audibly as I waited for my brain to conjure up additional steps to follow.
None came.
Wait, was that it … ?
Well, what else was there to do? Clearly, our sources of income were failing us. In that case, all I had to do was see to the issue in person!
Undoubtedly, my family and our retainers would have approached the sources of our kingdom's problems already. As a result, their failure to reverse declines suggests it wasn't something a mere royal visit could solve. Or more specifically, something that simply stamping the boot of authority couldn't solve.
Normally, that'd be an issue for me as well. However, as someone with overwhelming confidence due to never having tried anything that could result in failure, I was extremely upbeat about my own abilities.
That's right! My success rate was 100%. And until the day I tasted failure, I intended to abuse that winning streak for as long as I can. Ohohoho!
I went to my bedside table and picked up a parchment and quill.
Dearest Mother and Father,
In keeping with the traditions of our family, I will be undertaking a royal tour of our kingdom. Please be assured that I will use this opportunity to see to the needs of our people and to honour the dignity of this House. When I return, I will be worthy to hold the title of princess.
Do not allow the kitchen to braise confit de canard with hot oranges ever again. It is disgusting.
I nodded, satisfied at my detailed penmanship.
Strictly speaking, it was only the crown prince or princess who undertook a royal tour of duty, and usually just before their ascension. But there was precedent for greater participation in times of civil unrest.
My letter complete, I resumed my search for suitable attire. Travelling attire, at that. And one which didn't scream royalty. A highly difficult task. And yet one I had to succeed at for this endeavour to bear fruit. Long gowns, excessive frills and pandering crowds would hinder my walk even to the nearby village outside the Royal Villa.
Yes. Walk.
Even thinking the word caused my very spine to shudder. To use my own legs instead of a horse. It's a wonder I didn't search for a hoe to carry with me too. Yet such burdens on my soul were necessary.
As this journey would most certainly be forbidden by both Mother and Father, I needed to make my way to the village by myself. And also leave there by myself. I could not stay within the vicinity of the Royal Villa. I'd need to find a means of transporting myself to wherever the kingdom's ills are most severe.
Fortunately, time was on my side. It would be midday at least before the maids grew concerned that the food outside my room hadn't been touched or thrown back out. Time enough to be on my way to my destination.
But where was that?
Before I knew which problem to fix, I needed to know the true extent of them.
I needed to assess the state of the kingdom. That much was clear. And from an unbiased source. I doubted if anyone within these walls would give me an account untouched by a curtain of kindness.
“Hmm. I suppose this will suffice.”
Having scoured my wardrobe from top to bottom, I'd accumulated a set of clothes that could substitute as travelling attire.
It was the most informal pieces of clothing I owned, and would never see the light of day in a royal function. Even so, it was enough to clearly distinguish me as a nobleman's daughter.
Dark boots and high leggings. A patterned skirt and a square buckled belt. A small shoulder cape tied with a red ribbon. A grey sleeved tunic and white gloves. My experience with aristocratic families told me I'd fit well with a merchant baron's household.
With my clothes settled, I attached my sword, Starlight Grace, to my new belt.
Clothes? Yes.
Equipment? Sword.
Belongings? None.
Hmm. I couldn't help but wonder if I was missing something. My lack of experience with midnight escapades was beginning to show itself, wasn't it?
I looked in the mirror and adjusted my hairband. A small, black rose decorated the side. My personal sigil, should I ever choose to adopt one.
There. Better.
And with that—
It was time to depart.

Chapter 1 - A Beautiful Dream
Visual Image
“It has been quite a while since we last encountered, has it not?”
“You don’t wish to talk?”
“You’re left with nothing, but a mere illusion of emptiness, how will you persist, having discovered the truth? He awaits You. Do you bear a grudge against Him, or do you understand His deeds?”
“After all, you did not choose this path, or did you?”
“It is high time for you to return to slumber, for you cannot foresee your own future, but you know that by now, right?”
“Goodbye, Vincent, but bear in mind…”
“Never lose your faith.”

"Dante... Dante..., Dante!"
Gasp, "Mother..."
"It is time to wake up, Dante..."
I had experienced such a delightful dream, however, reality has once again dealt me a harsh blow. My parents' endeavors to provide for our household are meager, and residing in a cramped and dilapidated cottage, I was awakened to prepare for my daily labor.
I am Dante, a 16-year-old boy, residing with my two younger sisters and one younger brother, and both of my parents, in the rural outskirts of Castle Combe, England. The year is 1827. Our family is impoverished, subsisting on the brink of destitution in our humble abode, relying on the proceeds of my father's fishing and the limited bread we can afford through the labor that both my father and I undertake.
As the eldest, I have always shouldered the responsibility of caring for my siblings.
My father is a fisherman and also toils in the same factory as I. We are the primary sources of income for our household, while my mother, suffering from a debilitating condition, oversees the children, and manages to prepare meals and attend to the basic needs of my siblings.
As I groggily extricated myself from my bed, my father, attired in his work attire, wore a perpetual expression of gravity, his black hair tied in a brown cord, his gaze fixed upon me...
"Are you gonna sit there and watch me? Get up!"
I had not realized it, but my body felt as if it were on the brink of collapse. The rigors of labor have taken their toll on me. Six days every week. I felt so fatigued...
"Father, I am not feeling well..."
My father's anger was immediately aroused upon hearing my despairing words. He approached me, seized my emaciated arm, and dragged me from my bed. As I fell to the ground, my head began to spin.
I remained with my head resting on the floor, my father's shouts ringing in my ears.
"Get up or else you will be sleeping in the woods again!"
My mother attempted to placate him, but to no avail, he pushed her away. I ponder what has caused this sudden change in him.
We once lived in a slightly larger cottage, but unfortunately, the land on which it stood was requisitioned to build the factory where my father and I now labor. We were evicted and spent months as homeless individuals, until fate smiled upon us and we discovered this small cottage, which now serves as our home. Sadly, it came with a grueling and perilous lifestyle. It has been five years since we were evicted, the factory was completed two years later. Shortly thereafter, boy children living below the poverty line aged 13 or older were conscripted to work at the factory.
We are viewed as mere expendable laborers, and who can blame them, they hold the power. And where else can we go, we are of no use to anyone other than as manual laborers. None of us have any formal education either. It is a lamentable state of affairs.
I have been employed at the factory for over three years now.
My vision began to blur, but I mustered the strength to hoist myself upright and don my work clothes. It still pains me to see how my father has become so abusive in recent years. I often ponder, "I strive to the best of my ability to not disappoint my family, yet I am treated in this manner. Why...?"
I only had the opportunity to imbibe a small amount of water before my father ushered me out of the cottage, and I had yet to bid farewell to my sisters.
"Don't make me go late, son. You will be dead if we are."
I am surprised that I am able to remain upright, without the support of my father, I fear I would have succumbed to collapse. I can only pray that someone will display benevolence and provide me with something to relieve my grogginess or any other means to achieve the same end.
Upon our arrival at the factory, a cutting-edge knife manufacturing facility established by a benevolent organization, I had formed a few acquaintances. Among them, one individual stood out to me. I had never disclosed my domestic plight to him, yet he seemed to be cognizant of it. He consistently made efforts to look after me.
He exuded an air of jubilance, and like myself, he was of humble means. Despite the harsh winter weather, he persistently wore his work clothes, a sight that caused me much sorrow as I knew he did not possess a coat. As a result, I had resolved to save a minuscule amount of money, with the intention of purchasing him a modest but durable coat when winter arrived. Fortunately, it is currently autumn. His name is Thomas.
My colleagues and friends often likened Thomas and I to the Sun and Moon, with Thomas being the embodiment of brightness and myself being the embodiment of melancholy. I cannot fault them for this perception, as I do possess a penchant for a melancholic disposition. I had even considered cutting my long black hair in an attempt to alter their perception, despite my personal inclination towards it.
My role at the factory primarily involved honing the knives crafted by the older workers. The task could become quite arduous as we were not provided with gloves and were required to perform our duties with bare hands. The heat was a constant affliction, but one becomes accustomed to it over time.
My father and I would separate after signing in at the administration room. I would proceed to my designated work area, while my father would depart. Thomas, however, would always await me in the administration room, at the opposite end of the hallway.
"Top of the morning Dante! Had a good sleep?"
(As boisterous as ever... A perfect substitute for a cup of coffee, his energy alone is invigorating...)
"Yes, I've been okay."
Thomas approached me and ruffled my hair, (great. Now it's disheveled again...)
"Lookin a little pale today mate, you sure you're... okay...?"
He forgot I was with my father, as I mentioned earlier, it seemed as if he were privy to my domestic circumstances. He raised his gaze and saw my father glaring at him.
"Good morning mister Porter! Let's make it a good day today alright!"
He attempted to greet him cheerfully, only for my father to leave an awkward silence as he walked away without a word.
My other friends arrived as well, we were a group of four individuals. We had all met each other at the inception of the factory. I could say that we had grown quite close to one another, even my reticent self had warmed up to them, it was a pleasant feeling to say the least.
Me, Thomas, Okabe, and Gabriel. Okabe's parents were foreigners, hailing from the distant country of Japan. However, Okabe had been born here.
He was not well-versed in the customs of his motherland. He and Gabriel possessed a more relaxed disposition. Both of them were not as impoverished as Thomas and I, yet were still of modest means to be working at the factory. They both had the opportunity to attend school, a privilege that I envied. I am certain Thomas did as well.
Gabriel was the tallest among us, he also possessed the most striking visage. It was sometimes difficult to reconcile that he lived a life of poverty. He possessed all the desirable attributes, with his beautiful short-cropped blonde hair, hazel blue eyes, and well-proportioned physique.
Okabe was the shortest among us, he also commonly donned his work clothes, almost as frequently as Thomas did. He often bore a relaxed expression on his face and was never reticent to engage in conversation. He bore a visible scar on the right side of his face, and he would become hostile whenever anyone inquired about it.
Thomas was our jester, it still befuddled me how he and the others were able to maintain such a positive disposition. I would constantly observe them at the workplace, and it was astounding to me that they were able to laugh and jest while we worked. Thomas was almost as tall as Gabriel, he had freckles on his face, green eyes, and ginger hair color. He often had his hair tied back.
Then, there was me. Compared to my contemporaries, I appeared to be the most unwell. I donned larger-sized garments to obscure my gaunt physique. Though I was unable to conceal my emaciated visage from the others, it was a small price to pay. My dark brown eyes did not lend themselves to an appearance of vitality.
"You sick or something? You're looking so pale, did you have breakfast?" Gabriel inquired.
I ignored Gabriel and cast my gaze upon my father, who was already occupied with his work.
Gabriel reached into his satchel and procured a substantial piece of cinnamon-sugared bread, which he offered to me.
"Work this down, I also have some water for you. We have some time before we go work anyway."
I was relieved to have something to eat for breakfast, as I had gone nearly two days without sustenance. I was famished...
We engaged in idle chitchat, with Thomas regaling us with his fantastical tales, as was his wont. He frequently related the dreams he had recently experienced.
But all good things must come to an end, and it was time to commence work. Thankfully, it was also a Saturday, so we did not have to labor on Sundays, which was the day I finally got to rest.
We got to take a little breath, for 30 minutes. We sat together at a table outside, and they all brought food with them. However, I did not have anything with me. I surmised that we only had enough food to eat before nightfall, and nothing to bring with us for the day. I should suggest to my father that we should endeavor to go hunting sometime. We live in close proximity to nature, after all.
(Where even is he? Should he not be here...)
I observed my father indulging in a hearty meal of meat and bread with his colleagues. Lucky him...
"What are ya dozing off for Dante?" Thomas queried.
I shrugged it off, shaking my head, it was nothing, I was accustomed to this, anyhow. My friends most likely did not have enough to share, anyhow, so I would let them be.
"Oh, it's nothing, perhaps I did not sleep enough."
To my surprise, Thomas handed me a piece of bread.
"Here ya go, fella! Chomp it down, you bony vessel."
I supposed it was my lucky day, today.
"Thank you."
We continued our banter, and Gabriel made an unusual comment about me.
"Do you guys not think Dante's vocabulary is so different from ours?"
"Oooh, yeah! He talks like those noble squirrels!" Thomas replied.
Even Okabe silently nodded in agreement. Me, being compared to nobility? What a jest.
"Oh please friends."
"Hey, why not go out together tomorrow? Go in the woods, the cities, steal some food for ourselves, ya?" Thomas proposed.
"But tomorrow is resting day, you know that. Stores are most likely closed on Sundays." Okabe responded.
Gabriel insisted on Thomas his idea, "Let's try it okay? We come here at noon, at the front gate. Is that okay?"
We eventually came to an agreement to venture out together the following day. The only issue was our parents...
Visual Image (3)
The day had come to a close. I returned home with my father, it was always a comfort to be reunited with my family, who were all in good health. My mother was engaged in preparing a meal, and my younger brother greeted me with enthusiasm, having evidently missed me greatly.
"Dante! Hey, Papa!"
"Hello, Noah. Have you been good?"
"Yes, Dante! I help mommy!"
I assumed my sisters were asleep, but Mother noticed our return. My father had gone to their bedroom, leaving me with Noah and Mother.
"Hello, honey. How was work?"
"It was okay, Mother. I feel a little better, too."
"Oh! I made some tea that might help you feel even better!"
She poured me a cup of tea made from simple ingredients like herbs, plants, cinnamon, and sugar. It was the best tea I had ever tasted, and I felt a sense of pure euphoria with my first sip.
"Where did you get this from, Mother?"
"I made it myself, dear."
"I really like it, Mother. I would love to have more."
"I'm so glad you do. Change into your nightclothes, and let's relax before bed."
I changed and came back downstairs to spend time with my family. My father was engrossed in a book and not inclined to converse with us. Eventually, I retired to my bedchamber, gazing at the beautiful night sky…

2023.03.25 11:22 DirectorARhodes [A3][Recruiting][MILSIM][USA][EST] Aegis Security, a fresh take on the classic PMC idea

Aegis Security is a PMC ARMA unit focused on player choice, group decisions and community cooperation.
Main Language: English only
Timezone: EST
Operation Times: Starting at 5-7pm, day dependent. Thurs, Sat, Sun
Required Mods: ACE, TFAR, RHS, KAT, various maps and equipment mods
Please note, we are strictly 18+!
Aegis Security is a unit designed entirely around the idea of player control and choice. You pick the missions you run, in what order, and how. No more showing up to an operation just to get saddled with something you have no interest in - It's up to you and the group to strategize, cooperate and succeed.
Featuring a multi-tiered tech tree and research system, you earn the gear you use piece by piece. If you want that shiny new AK or M4, you'd better find a way to get one and bring it back to be reproduced.
Each mission you do will feature opportunities for rewards and advancement based off the success (or failure) of the group. Earn money, find blueprints and gear, and exploit every asset you have to gain an edge over enemies that will fight you just as hard as you fight them.
If you want an ARMA unit where your time and input is immediately rewarded and where dedication is king, Aegis is the place for you.
We're looking for invested, driven players to help make this project a longterm success.
We feature multiple branches so you can do what you do best, with a full rank system for even more to strive for.
Now accepting contractors! Sign a contract with Aegis Security today!
