2023.06.10 06:38 CorinaThongkham Crypto Scam Banking Scam Alert
While it's true that crypto scams are relatively less common compared to banking and SMS scams, it's important to remain vigilant. Here are some key points to keep in mind:
- Stay alert: Be cautious and skeptical of any unsolicited offers or requests related to cryptocurrencies. Don't let your guard down, even if the occurrence of crypto scams is lower.
- Verify information: Double-check the legitimacy of individuals or platforms before making any transactions or sharing personal details. Research and verify their reputation and track record.
- Protect your assets: Use secure wallets and follow best practices for storing and securing your cryptocurrencies. Avoid keeping large amounts on exchange platforms and use hardware wallets for added protection.
- Educate yourself: Stay informed about common crypto scam techniques and red flags. Knowledge is your best defense against falling victim to scams.
- Report suspicious activity: If you come across any suspicious crypto-related activities or potential scams, report them to the appropriate authorities or relevant crypto communities.
Remember, while crypto scams may be less prevalent than other forms of scams, it's still crucial to be cautious and take proactive measures to protect yourself and your assets in the ever-evolving crypto landscape.

2023.06.10 06:34 GroundbreakingEar690 [OC][Art] Used AI for a Quick Set of Cards for a Home Brew Campaign
Wanted to provide this set of nine cards I threw together for our DND campaign. My players will be entering a city tomorrow and one of the shops is called: Curio Curiosity Shoppe.

I wanted to make a small deck of cards that would allow them to ease into things like the deck of many things with out the overwhelming benefits/withdrawals early on.

2023.06.10 06:22 Whole_Advantage_8764 I need help deciding on a chapter I’m stuck between salamanders and iron hands?
| || |
The picture above is the color scheme. submitted by Whole_Advantage_8764 to Warhammer40k [link] [comments]
I haven’t came up with a name for them yet so I call them they.
They are a ultima founding chapter who never knew of their primogeniture due to that information becoming lost however after assisting the Storm Giants chapter in a battle against the Dragon Warriors warband after the battle was finally over they found out what chapter they belonged to the (insert chapter name) chapter.
Chapter master Saltorion Petrane, Chaplain Falix Hostorsh, and Saltorions two guards Yorane and Cazzeo as well as all of the marines of (insert chapter name) hail from the hive world of Teluxis it is a world known for its harsh weather and cruel native beasts such as the sky spitters and skinner roaches. The chapter has sworn to themselves to guard Teluxis for reasons unknown only having them know the true secret that lives on Teluxis, they will be showing the enemy no mercy as they crush them with heavy armament, and unwavering brutality.
Things to know about them.
After learning about their primogeniture chapter and meeting them the chapter have became isolationist almost refusing the call to aid any other chapters unless given war gear in return for their help.
They have a large amount of gravis armor, terminator armor, dreadnoughts and tanks form the Storm Giants as thanks for their aid against the Dragon Warriors. However they and the Storm Giants are no longer allies due to chapter disagreement so they have been having to make with what they have as well as trading with the Marines Exemplar and Marines Malevolent.
They are not as trusting of the adeptus mechanicus then most chapters only relying on them when it comes to limb replacement or dreadnought internment. However the chapter is very accepting of techmarines most likely because of them being a battle brother of the chapter as well.
One of there trials to become one with the chapter involves the aspirants having to hunt down a sky spitter. The aspirant does not need to kill one but rather they must either comeback with a piece of a sky spitter skin, talon, teeth, or a cup of the sky spitters saliva.
Currently they are defending Teluxis against a raid from the Iron Warriors warband The Bitter Sons but they do not care for they shall destroy them with every fiber of their being.
Allies. Marines Malevolent: It is unknown as to how the chapter was able to form an alliance with the Marines Malevolent but they are often seen meeting each other at the chapters fortress monastery.
Marines Exemplar: Are suspected mostly because of trading they have been doing with the chapter giving them war gear in return for more aspirants which the chapter has plenty of.
Troubled Relations. The Raven Guard: The chapter does not see the point when you can just destroy anything in your path with the aid of an executioner and a bolt rifle, to them sneaking is dishonorable.
Storm Giants: Little is know as to why the chapters had a falling out but most believe it was a difference in ideology.
Mechanicus: The chapter does not like the mechanicus ever since the knowledge of their primogeniture came to light they keep themselves away from the mechanicus only allowing the mechanicus to help with standard tasks barley speaking to them unless needed.
2023.06.10 06:17 Super-Challenge1776 A TIP FOR GRAILED USERS TO GET FASTER PAYOUTS.
I am going to give you tips or rather, tell you what I do.. I recently sold a pair of pants to Italy, and the payment was held and had to pay 40 dollars to have that item shipped out of pocket. Today, the money was released to my paypal- as soon as it was scanned by USPS.. I got the email about the payment hold (the email posted) while my payment was being held so I was quite confused...
Here is why I think I got my payments released faster than, sadly, most...
I DO HAVE ALL 3 BADGES: TRUSTED SELLER, FAST RESPONDER AND FAST SHIPPER AND HERE IS WHAT *I THINK* CAN HELP.
**** I print labels as soon as they sell and add tracking to the posted sale on grailed, I either ship daily if the item is purchased from 6 pm-3:30 pm (evening hours to 3:30 pm the next day) or Next day if it falls on a Holiday, Ship Monday if item is purchased Saturday- but I still print and add tracking number to the sold listing- I never wait.
**** I answer ALL questions regardless of time- day or night. 4 am, I still answer. If I don't like an offer, I send a message stating why- never NOT respond, this will keep your response rate at 100%. and because they regulate and watch Verbiage in the messages, keep it nice- although at times I want to beat their faces in, I still send a nice message.
**** After adding tracking, I also leave a quick message stating the sale is acknowledged and item was either shipped or will ship next day due to Post Office hour Cutoff.
**** I always, ALWAYS, add measurements to my items and leave a lengthy description on what the item is. If the item is a current item sold in Stores I Add the link and will then state to follow the link for current retail price and additional information along with additional Stock photos.
Once again. don't shoot the messenger. Because we still don't know what the hold situation is, and given such a broad explanation in the above posted email. I am just giving what I think may help and why my sales are not a part of the holds.
To follow: I take my Business very seriously and not just a side gig for me, this is my full- time business aside from my Hair and Wardrobe Styling Job. Since we have to pay taxes over a certain amount you are now considered a business.

2023.06.10 06:09 Late-Acanthaceae-825 Hello I'm known as Kujo The Wicked
I'm a underground horrorcore Numetal/rap artist . I have over 70 songs made and available only on my YouTube channel. Search Kujo The Wicked to find me. It's the channel with 97 subscribers. Im often told by my fans I have a unique unheard style of horrorcore. I'm not trying to be like ICP TWIZTID or anyone else that's in the horrorcore genre. I'm doing things my way I'll never be what I consider copycats or just completely doing the same thing as everyone else. Below is the origin story of Kujo The Wicked
In the beginning before the big bang before anything else existed 2 beings appear from the unknown one. these 2 beings are God and Kujo but neither of them know who appeared first. Kujo being extremely creative funny and how to make god laugh and how to entertain them both became the 1st jester he was god's only friend He provided laughter and joy to the angels when God created them and heaven. God one day decided humanity when he created them that they needed KuJo more than heaven, and sent KuJo to earth. Little did God know how humanity hearts and minds and souls are evil violent destructive selfish sadistic beings the flaw in gods creation his first failure. Humanity tortured mutilated corrupted KuJo till he lost his heart soul and mind his true name lost to insanity. Humanity turned a entity of pure joy and laughter, to a entity of pure insanity,rage, and chaos. KuJo only remembers he was jester but now he tortures tricks kills devours humanity. God felt so sorry for his friend that he couldn't destroy him no matter how evil he's become. To punish humanity God let's KuJo do whatever he wants to. Only thing he did to KuJo was banned him from ever returning to heaven. Knowing if KuJo was allowed back it would be the destruction of heaven. KuJo since he turned into a formless entity of pure insanity rage and Chaos has caused mankind to commit it's most horrible acts. KuJo is behind the crucifixion of Jesus Christ to prove to God how bloodthirsty humanity is. he's behind the fall of empires worlds and galaxies he can create his own realities for his victims. he often takes the form of a demon to mess with christians. he will possess a human just to make it's seem like a legit Demonic possession just to watch a preacher fail at everything to save the host just all just for a laugh. he's behind major wars humanity has fought just for his entertainment cause he was bored. he lives in a place he created called the black Abyss it's a place where no light can penetrate complete darkness except for the faint glow of a black star.he brings some if his victims here to be turn into things like him but they're expendable. it's the one place KuJo calls home and feels sane for only he can see within the realm and that of the carnivorous creatures that feed opon the victims of Kujo games that are taken to the abyss. the creatures look like a mix between a dire wolf and dragon and they're the only thing Kujo feel loves for and they're extremely brutal predators he created and are extremely loyal to Kujo. the people he brings to this realm. are hunted by them but it's for a purpose. once Kujo has you in the black abyss your driven insane by being brutally hunted and devoured, only to awaken and being hunted again. Kujo tortures his victims here by mentally physically and emotionally and spiritually with horrific tricks and games all design to turn you into a ENTITY like Kujo your former self to become a personality trait of Kujos mind. Within the black Abyss it's like earth there water grass trees even houses but his victims can't see but a few inches ahead of them. he does all this to turn them to make them become bloodthirsty savage demon like formless entitys like Kujo. he's extremely clever and very sadistic he's witness every sin humanity has ever committed and he uses that knowledge to use against humanity knowing everything they have ever done. he mentally fucks with all God's from Odin to Zeus to Allah Budda to Egyptians God's to all the gods from pagan to even the devil himself. he thinks very low of all gods demons and everything that thinks they control humanity. demons most of all he literally devours them. to him Satan and his demons are prey for Kujo. he sees the devil as nothing but just a angel with severe daddy issues and a brat that was put in timeout for throwing a temper tantrum.. inside Kujos world known as the black abyss hes making a army of entitys like him. the reason why is one day all God's except God himself will try to take him on to stop him God learn long ago after Kujo killed his son God literally did everything to destroy imprisoned and erase Kujo from existence nothing ever worked so God hides in heaven and his angels forbidden to go to earth cause if God was to leave heaven Kujo would take god to the black abyss and torture him unlike anything else that was brought here to turn God into his ultimate weapon a nuclear bomb basically that would bring the end of everything in existence in heaven or hell or earth when he sends god back to heaven so that only Kujo and his personalities his entities and his realm would be the only things left . the black abyss is a place that every god that exist is terrified of. no god has seen the inside of the black abyss except for God's arch Angel Michael. Michael and 20 angels were able to get inside the abyss. they were there for only 5min and could only see 8feet ahead even with the light of Michael. they were first attacked by the creatures loosing 6 angels in seconds then Kujo and his entitys came. and only Micheal barely escaped but he lost his sanity to the point where he eventually went catatonic. the other angels were turned into entitys like the other victims Kujo brings to the abyss. Michael before he went catatonic he was literally eating himself and other souls in heaven in a mass killing spree, told God about what he witnessed in the Aybss and delivered Kujos message that Kujo wants God to be the very one that destroys everything he loves and what he told him send chills through God that Kujo has the power the ability and the forces of the one that created them in the beginning...there alot more lore I've written about the character everything I've written about my character KuJo is just for a entertaining read he's a character I created in 2013.

2023.06.10 06:03 PurpleSolitudes Best Shoes For Travel
| || | submitted by PurpleSolitudes to storedekko [link] [comments]
Good quality travel shoes are essential for comfortable and safe traveling. When you’re on the go, whether you’re exploring a new city or hiking in the mountains, your feet are your primary mode of transportation. Wearing the wrong shoes can lead to blisters, soreness, and even injuries.
Why Good Quality Travel Shoes Are Important:
- Comfort: Good quality travel shoes should be comfortable to wear for long periods of time. They should support your feet and provide cushioning to absorb shock and reduce fatigue. Comfortable shoes also help reduce the risk of blisters, calluses, and other foot problems that can make traveling painful.
- Safety: Depending on where you’re traveling, you may encounter uneven terrain, slippery surfaces, or other hazards that require sturdy and slip-resistant shoes. Good quality travel shoes provide better traction and stability, reducing the risk of slips, trips, and falls.
- Durability: Travel shoes go through a lot of wear and tear, so it’s important to invest in shoes that are durable and can withstand the rigors of travel. Shoes made with high-quality materials and construction will last longer and save you money in the long run.
- Versatility: Good quality travel shoes should be versatile enough to wear in a variety of situations. They should be suitable for walking tours, hiking trails, and casual outings. Choosing shoes that can be dressed up or down will save space in your luggage and give you more flexibility in your travel wardrobe.

2023.06.10 05:57 TheRealWillNash A pundurful story
Trying my best at being punny.
Sadly, with most puns, when they are told (usually by dads) they are often dismissed in ways that seems cold and mean. Before you judge my punderful abilities and read any burrrther, you have to understand pundamentals of pun... itself.
Oh this is going to be so pun, isn't?!
By the way, did you know the actor who plays Legolas tried to meet some fans privately but couldnt because everyone kept screaming its-elf!!
Fun fact! I wanted to share with you something that I thoroughly enjoy. I love a very deep, almost circular hole that stores fresh water. If you dont like that... oh well.
At my old job, I was a bodyguard to a well-known electrician. You wouldn't think an electrician would need a body guard but the power dynamics at his job were shocking, to say the least. Ive heard stories that'll make your hair stand up. To be honest I wasnt very bright, kind of a dull on the job, and because of that, my boss would always blow a fuse. Watt could I do? Watt you dont do is try to run power lines through the wirehouse and bolt out of there. They'll close the circuit on you. That wasn't a very positive experience and I was charged up with negative energy so I took my lunch breaker.
On my lunch break I saw a worker bee contemplating his life choices on a beautiful plant with flowers. Beeing that and beeing his sadness, I muttered to myself 'Oh honey, youre bumbling through life the same way I am. My advice is dont go wasping your life away. I know life stings sometimes and its always pollen you down. You have my sympabees. Please moving forward little friend, bee-have!' Beefore I buzzed the door to let me back inside to work, I looked over to the beeautiful bee on the flower and waspered... dont stop bee leafing my friend!
Feeling stressed at work, I prayed.
Dear Lord, I ask you to please crest me with strength to deal with this singing pig that is my boss, for it is sow-fully terrible to listen to. I beg you to let me rise up and not lose prominence. If I dont receive your cressing, I know Alp fall from this elevation and land boar-down on my face. Can you blame me? This singing pig is trying to swine-dle me! For peaks sake, Im stuck listening to his hymns-illayus! Alas! My lord, being the bigger man is hard, hard ad a rock. This elevation I now sit upon is breathtakingly high up, not for the weak and pun-y!
Haha as you can see, my puns are great! Spanning a vastly huge mountain range of topics and being very (Cl)everest..you could say I'm not only very punny, but absolutely peaking hill areas !!!

2023.06.10 05:48 salor123 The start of a new tale (Storyborn act: 0)
New story time baby. This one would be about god of stories salor and if you know anything about gos salor's backstory then throw that out because I'm retconning it. Plus this is not part of the main salor but a different one. Also I'm don't going to fully work on it yet because I wanna take a break do this type of lore because I just finished SCP salor like 3 days ago lol and just need a break in total. So enjoy the beginning of this tale
The house of ideas. The house of ideas is where most stories are held. Stories about people, there, stories that are lost to time by people, there, if you even made a story it is there. Any story you could think of is stored there safely. Today was a important day for the one known as Salor has been accused of the act of going against the house of ideas.
Salor would be handcuffed with material that couldn't be broken by the most powerful of weapons. Two tall guards with golden armor that had black outlines and markings on them. They had strange looking helmets that even Salor never seen before with purple eyes showing out of them. They wield axes in their hands that in one slash could cut a planet in half. They would arrive at a giant door that went into what Salor could describe as a mansion that was from the 1900th century.
The two guards would put their hands on the door and push it open. The mansion would be far bigger inside than it was outside. It looked like it went on for an endless amount of time with bookshelves of stories. The bookshelves would be made out of the finest wood you could see in several lifetimes as they would hold several types of books about different people, different stories, different legends and far far more. The two guards would continue to bring Salor to where they are going. Salor would try to strike up a conversation.
“So where are we going?”
“I suggest you shut up defendant because your questions won’t help you.” the guard on the left of Salor would say.
“Whatever the boss decides.” Salor would say back.
Before Salor could look to his right, the right guard would grab his ax and would sweep his legs. Salor would be in the air for a bit as he would go back a bit. The guard would lift his ax over him and bring it down with the handle of it hitting Salor in the stomach. Salor would quickly be on the floor and coughing trying to recover from the heavy blow.
“SHIT, what was that for!” Salor would say looking at the right guard.
“Those who defined orders will be put back in line” The right guard would reply.
The two guards would grab Salor by the arms and lift him up where his feet couldn’t reach the floor and only dangle in the air. Salor would try to move his arms but it didn’t work a bit. The two guards would continue to bring Salor to where they were going. They would pass many bookshelves that contained many stories. When he took a closer look he could see they were ordered by series and what genres they were. After some time the three of them would arrive in what seems to be the middle of the grand mansion or library. There was also a book reception desk that was high up like it was a judge’s bench. The guards would drop Salor and kick him down onto the ground. His head would hit down ground as he would give a grunt. The two guards would bring down their axes and they would land right by his head, seeming like they were ready to kill him right there with no hesitation. Saloe was stuck there. His hands were handcuffed behind his back, he was laying on the ground not being able to get up, and finally two axes by his neck that could slice his head off like it was paper. Man, such place to be, his day isn’t going well.
Then up above in the air, two beings would appear.They would both be pitch black and had blue outlines on their clothing and even blue eyes.They would look far different from each other too with the taller one would have a appearance of a grown up woman that would be wearing a overcoat on and wearing a black and blue wedding hat. The other one would have the appearance of a small boy that is wearing a black and blue suit with dapper black shoes on. They would look at each other then look down to the guards and Salor.
“Is he the one who did it?” the boy would say.
“It seems like he is the one.” The woman would reply with.
“Who the hell are you-” salor would try to say but one of the guards would move his ax to have it touch his skin but not hurt it. Salor then went quiet not because of fear but because he was smart.
The two mysterious beings would look at each other and would descend down and where the library-like desks were they would sit down on their respective seats. The woman would pull out a file on the desk and would open it. The file was on Salor and the “crime” he did.
“Today is trial of the house on the character known as Salor who had committed the crime known as rujukanria or the act of disturbing the house of ideas in an act 2 type manner.” The woman would say.
“Woah woah woah there slow down, can anyone tell me what is happening here”. Salor would say in response.
Both of the guards would move their axes closer to his neck, but the boy would raise his hand making the guards move their axes back but still by his neck.
“The one known as Salor, you have been accused for rujukanria act 2. This means that you have knocked over a bookcase that damaged some books apart from the house of ideas.” the boy would say. He would nod to the lady and she would get out a picture. Could you even call it that or something for it looked like a picture but worked like a video. It would show a video of Salor purposely knocking over a giant bookshelf that contained lots of books and tales. It would soon stop as Salor would now have a shocked face.
“That can’t be me, I never even knew about this place until I actually came here.” salor would respond with.
“It sure does look like you and besides it even says in your story it shows you were going to do this and you were there to steal a very variable book” the woman would say with a serious yet disappointed voice.
“It couldn’t be me, it couldn't be…” Salor would look down a bit and realize something. He realized that the “Salor” on the video thing didn’t have a part of his ear was gone where he took a gunshot to the ear. “I was framed…” Salor would whisper to himself.
“What was that defendant?” the Left guard would ask him.
“I was f-”
Before he could finish his sentence he would be cut off by the boy with him raising his hand.
“I think we are done here, there is fine and clean evidence that supports your guilty Salor.”
Now both the boy and the woman would start to speak together
“We, the guardians of the house of ideas have decided to give Salor who has committed rujukanria act 2, shall receive-”
Suddenly a massive explosion would come from the north-westish of where they were. The guards would quickly get ready in a battle stance as they rushed over to the explosion. The two beings would look at each other and decide that the explosion was more important than the Salor trial. The both of them would teleport away leaving Salor alone.
“Should I go see what that was…maybe not”
Salor would get up and start to walk in a random direction that was south-west. He would walk until he saw a section of the library that had the stories of people he knew like old friends and comrades from war. He would continue to walk down the bookshelves and would soon arrive at a specific spot. He would notice that his story was also here too but also by three other versions of him? He didn’t know why there were 3 other books of his but he wasn’t too interested in those but his. He would grab his book and it had a green cover which made him confused. It also had some gold on it for effect which made Salor feel cool. He would flip through the book and he would be shocked that it told every detail throughout his long life even when he went into that long sleep. He would flip until the pages went blank. As he did he could see that his book would have purple markings on one of the pages. He would read it and it was just the exact detail that was on the picture thing. He knew it, he was framed. He didn’t know how but he wanted to know who and how they did it. He would close the book and start to carry it around with him.
He would leave where that around was after a bit of walking he would be lost. Then another explosion could be heard and he saw a yellow, black, and purple cloaked figure dash in front of him and start to race out of the place. Salor would run away and hide and as he predicted, some guards would rush over to where the mysterious figure would dash off too. Luckily they didn’t notice him. What was strange is that those two other people from before weren’t with them.
Yet soon, Salor could feel something. It felt like an unknown force was pulling him to something or somewhere. After the guards went away, chasing the mysterious figure, Salor would sneak away. He would walk for a bit until he would reach a more, far bigger bookshelf. It would have stories of many villains, heroes, and even gods. Salor would keep on walking until he found a green glowing book. This was the thing that was calling him. He would grab the book from the shelf and on the cover it would have the words “The story of the god of stories loki”. It would have green and gold colors on the cover and back. He would look at his book and he realized, they would look the exact same but with different words. He would open the book and would start to read the story about the god of stories loki.
He would sit there reading the story for what felt like hours even though only 30 minutes had passed. He would be done with the book after sometime and a look of excitement. He also felt that his body was a little strange. He would spot a mirror and would walk to it. As soon he looked in the mirror he could tell he was far different. He would have gold horns that tore through two spots on his hat that came from a gold thing that lined up against his hairline. His clothes would completely change with them now being a green overcoat with gold on them and white fluff on top of the coller. His pants would change to gray-blueish pants with brown boots on. Finally, he would notice that he would grow a foot taller now being 5’5.
“Holy shit…I look cool.” Salor would say to himself as he did a little spin.
He would soon walk away with him holding both of the books in his hands. He would walk out of the area of bookshelves. He would continue to walk around a bit until he arrived back into the center of the place and he would see the same exact two beings from before floating in the air talking to each other.
“You think that the mysterious figure would come back again?” The boy would say to the girl.
“I don’t think so. Just by his smirk I could tell that he was satisfie”d with stealing his book.” She would reply with.
“That would be troublesome just by itself. We also have to deal with that salor-” The boy would reply with but stop his sentence when he looked over to Salor and notice his new appearance
“It seemed like he changed.”
“His tale did go into action.”
“What the hell are the both of you talking about?”
The two beings would look at each other, seeming like they were talking to each other through their minds. After a bit they would be done and look down at Salor as he looked on, crossing his arms.
“We have decided on something, Salor.” The woman would say.
“Yea what is it?”
The boy would speak up “prove yourself to us. You have a brand new life thanks to that book. Prove to us you can be the next god of stories and prove your innocence.”
“Next god of stories?” Salor would say to himself and look down. He didn’t know what he meant to be the next god of stories but he needs to prove his innocence to survive.
“What do I get if I do prove myself?”
“The act of rujukanria act 2 shall be dropped, you will have free access to the library, and the respect from the two of us.” The woman would say.
Salor would think to himself again. Getting free from his charges was good and he was interested in the library. He would also get their respect but he conflicted on that part.
“I accept” Salor would say looking up at the two beings.
“Good.” The boy would say.
Now both of the beings would be talking together “as the guardians of the house of ideas mojiama, the woman of peace of the house, and trejiama, the boy of order of the house. Shall see if you are worthy of innocence or you are guilty, now- “
They would bring their right and left arms respectively up, pointing to the sky and then back down to Salor. Some blood would come out of his mouth and as he looked down, he could see 4 bar-like things would be stabbed into Salor. One in his right knee, one in his left shoulder, one in the abdomen area, and finally one in the heart.
“Survive” The both of them would finish their sentence.
Salor would start falling backwards and as he did, a hole would appear on the ground. He would fall into it and would start to fall father and father away from the house of ideas. Blood would quickly leave his body but couldn’t cover them. He would continue to fall though all of space seeing many universes, planets and many many more. What felt like an eternity, he would land on something. It was the ground of the void. A splash of blood could be heard as even more blood would come out. He would soon start to lose consciousness but before he did, he could see a tall man that was black as night would approach him. He couldn’t tell what he was or what he was wearing for his vision would be blurry. Soon he would pass out with the mysterious man standing over him.

2023.06.10 05:35 lonelady75 How my coworker singlehandedly destroyed the best job of my life
This is an old story, like, more than 10 years old, but I occasionally find myself thinking and still fuming about this, and I don't have anyone to tell it to.
I had a job working at a Headstart preschool. It didn't pay great, but I loved the work. Like, to the point that I would sometimes go in on my days off because it was fun job. I loved the kids, I felt like I was doing something meaningful - we were a preschool in a very low income area, we had kids from the local homeless shelter, new immigrants, kids who had been kicked out of other preschools for behavior issues... we took them all, and it was great.
It was just a satisfying job that was also, somehow, not too mentally taxing. Like, when I went home from work, i was home. It wasn't like when I taught at an elementary school and would go home and do hours of work to prepare for the next day. It honestly was just a joy to go to work, something I know is incredibly rare and I truly valued it.
I had a coteacher, who I'll call Shelly. Shelly and I got along alright, not amazingly, but alright. Although over the years, she changed in some odd ways. The first and weirdest one was she began to smell. Our preschool was not religious, but it was located in a large, old school Anglican church, with very high ceilings, and there were days that I would walk into the church (not our preschool classrooms) and be able to smell that she was there. That's how bad it was. And it was doubly frustrating because we had very different fashion styles. She tended to dress up ,and I always was in jeans and a t-shirt. So while I don't know for sure, I'm would imagine anyone coming into the room would smell the B.O., look at the two adults in the room, and think "well, that must be coming off the woman in the old t-shirt, can't be from the woman in the little black dress."
But I tolerated it because what else could I do? We were a small preschool, no HR department. And I don't know how to bring that up without being super rude.
But that wasn't the thing that ruined the job.
Our preschool had two separate programs, morning and afternoon, with room for 16 kids in each. Because of the neighborhood we were in, there were a lot of kids who would come and go (like, kids from the shelter who would get housing, and move away, that sort of thing), so our supervisor was always out doing community outreach to make sure we were full. We weren't always full, but that was part of her job.
But our supervisor ended up making a financial error, and got fired (she landed on her feet, I still hear from her occasionally, she's fine). The board of trustees offered me the job, but I know I'm not an administrator, so I refused, and they offered it to my coworker Shelly. And she took it. Which initially I was happy about because it would mean she would not be in the classrooms with me, and I wouldn't have to smell her.
One of the first things Shelly did was align our preschool with a large local Community Health Center (CHC). Which meant we were no longer an independent preschool run by a board of trustees made up of a bunch of old church ladies, we were now a part of a large organization with hundreds of staff. There was a slight increase in benefits, which initially came with a slight decrease in pay, which I remember finding a bit funny, but that was fine.
But almost immediately things got worse at the actual job. Our preschool was maybe a 4 minute walk away from a local library, with no street crossings in between, and we had, for years, taken our kids to the library once a month. We'd usually ask for one parent volunteer for that day, and if we couldn't get one, we'd ask a librarian to come to the preschool and walk with us so the kids would be safe. Suddenly, that was no longer permitted because of safety and liability concerns (the CHC was not willing to take the risk).
For years we had had random "water days" in the summer when it was really hot, where we would set up kiddy pools and sprinklers in our little backyard. I had gone and bought a bunch of kids clothes from local thrift shops using my own money and we would tell parents at the beginning of the summer that if the weather was hot, we would have water play day, and then if they were too wet, we would put them in the thrift store clothing, send them home and ask the parents to return the thrift store clothes. We would get about 80% of the clothing back, but it was fine. The kids loved it, no parents ever complained. But the CHC said that wasn't allowed anymore. We could only have Water Days on preplanned days when the parents could send their own change of clothing. And that effectively ended it because how could we know when the weather was going to be good for it?
We had also done monthly field trips to local museums and parks (again, always with volunteers -- we had 3 volunteers who came on regular days every week, and we would ask for parent volunteers as well). But the CHC thought this was too much of a liability risk and no longer permitted it. So that sucked.
But then something else began to happen. When we would lose children from the program due to them moving or aging out, they were not getting replaced, and our numbers got really low. This had happened before, but only ever for a month or so. This went on for several months. And of course, the CHC was super concerned. Because while we were a non-profit, and the parents didn't pay, we got money from the government to cover the cost of each child, and if there weren't enough children, the preschool would actually lose money.
The CHC started coming down on Shelly after maybe 6 months of this, but it just didn't get better. I arrived one morning to do my morning preparations and I could hear Shelly in the office with someone from the CHC and Shelly was yelling something or other, and then I heard her say "Well, maybe I shouldn't be here then", and that was the last I saw her for almost a year. She quit that day.
We got a new supervisor within a week, who did the proper community outreach, and we were filled within maybe 2 weeks again. So Shelly just hadn't done her job. But the problem was that 6 months of not being full had put us very firmly in the red, so the CHC decided to stop our preschool having 2 programs for the morning and afternoon and reduced us to one full day program. And that's when everything fully went to shit.
When you have a preschool that is open for 6 hours or more, suddenly there are things legally mandated by the government that you have to do. We had to provide breakfast, 2 snacks, and lunch. We had to have a nap time, craft time, and indoor and outdoor playtime (separate times). And this would have been fine except for the fact that the CHC had another preschool and so to save costs, they decided to combine the bus routes, which because of timing and schedules meant that our kids were with us for exactly 6 hours.
All of those government mandated things? They take up exactly six hours. So we had ZERO flexibility. I don't know if you noticed, but there was nothing in that list of things that included activities like reading together, circle time, etc. Basically, there was now no real teaching time going on.
Oh, and naptime was hell. People think it would be relaxing, but trying to get 16 kids to go to sleep at the same time is a nightmare. They are not all tired at the same time. Some of them don't nap anymore. Some of them cry, some of them need to be held to fall asleep, and then others get jealous, it was just... the worst. And it was government mandated to be, I think 2 hours? So it was two hours of trying to get kids to stay on their cots. I hated every second of it. We all did.
I was literally sneaking time during this whole ordeal to read and do educational circle activities with the kids. Like, I'm not exaggerating. My supervisor would be out for the day for something and I would think "OH GOOD! She's gone, I can have storytime today! Maybe we can do a counting game! YAY!" Because I would get in trouble if she was around because it was taking away from the things that we were legally required to do. The job went from being super fun, fulfilling and meaningful to feeling like I was babysitting and just making sure the kids didn't die.
I was the last of the "old" teachers to quit. I stuck it out for maybe 18 months. There had been, I think 5 staff from before the Community Health Center. The rest of them all quit within the first year.
Now, this might seem like just a random consequence of Shelly being bad at her job. But here's where it gets worse. Maybe 2 months before I quit ( and yeah, this definitely had an effect on me and wanting to stay), Shelly came back to visit. She and I were having a friendly chat, and I was telling her about the changes and how we were now a full day program and she looks away and says -- "You know, when I started, it was just half day. Not two half day programs, we were only open in the morning. I really liked it then. And I didn't need any more hours, that was enough for me to live on."
I looked at her a bit confused and said "well, I'm glad it was 2 half day programs by the time I started, I could barely make due with that income, to be honest."
And she shrugged, and then said "I kinda thought that if we couldn't fill the two halves, the Community Center would take it back to just mornings. I guess they went the other way."
And I just stared at her. And I think we spoke for a few more minutes and then she left.
She never said it outright, but I'm certain she deliberately tanked the program to try and cut it back to a halfday program but they went in the opposite direction. And made a wonderful job into a miserable one. And I think that was what took the wind out of my sails. I was out of there (and literally out of the country -- I live in Korea now) within a couple of months.

2023.06.10 05:32 Infinite_Yellow_1149 Need Advice Regarding Family Civil Law Case.
I was served a petition on May 25th, 2023. This case is taking place in Texas.
The petition states that I am being sued for full custody of my son, and for child support. The petitioner is my son's paternal aunt. I am his paternal father. My son is 5.
My son's mother passed away on April of 2023. I was not notified of her death, until I was served May 2023.
When my son was born, I signed his birth certificate, and a seperate form acknowledging that I am his father. I am not sure what this form is called exactly, but I do have a physical copy.
What the petitioner is alleging:
• Petitioner alleges I have not seen my son in over 4 years.
- I've had a relationship with my son and was with him almost everyday until I had a falling out with my son's mothers family (4 years ago). After this falling out, they threatened me physically & made it clear that if I were to come around to see my son, they would find ways to have me put in jail. Not knowing my rights as a parent, I let them scare me into thinking I could never see my son again.
• Petitioner alleges she feels I'm a violent person, and my son will not be safe around me.
- This is far from the truth. My son lived with his mother & her immediate family at her home. When I would spend time with my son & his mother, it was ALWAYS in the company of her family, at her home. Not once did I ever get physically violent with the mother of my son, or my child. We did have verbal disagreements, but they were never physical or violent. Her family would often step in during our verbal disagreements, and try to turn them physical against me, but I was always smart enough to leave their home before it escalated.
• Petitioner is alleging that before my son was born, I had asked the mother of my child for an abortion, which she feels means that I did not want my son.
- For context, when I met my sons mother she was on dialysis, and had began entering stage 4 of kidney failure, due to Lupus. She was told she would never have children, and her chances of survival due to lupus were low. Her doctors made it CLEAR it was a miracle she was still alive. I did ask for an abortion, but it was due to me being afraid of my sons mother's health condition, and how healthy our child would be after being born. It was NOT because I didn't want to be a father. My son is a GIFT I am proud of, and love more than anything.
• Peitioner is alleging that my son does not know who I am, and that I should not have custody or even visitation rights.
- My son knows who I am, he knows I am his father. I have plenty of pictures with my son, his mother, and I celebrating moments. Going out to stores, dinners, buying him gifts. I was financially taking care of my son, until his mother stopped accepting anything I bought or tried to send to my son. I was forced out of his life. IF my son no longer recognizes me as his father, it is because he was taught so.
My son's mother was told she would never have children. She made it clear to me, that if our personal relationship did not work out, she would not want me in my son's life at all. Prior to meeting me, she was looking to start IVF treatments to give her family a child before she passed away, which she knew was was inevitable. She had passed away once before, and was resuscitated a few months after our son was born. After that incident, conversations with her only became more clear that she no longer wanted me around. I felt I was only used to conceive a child with her.
Notes I feel are of importance:
• There are NO custody agreements in place.
• The petition states that my son remain ONLY at her families home address named in this case. Petitioner claims to have moved back to said family home to take care of my son, which is 3 minutes from my home, however I suspect she has taken him to her actual and main residence in another city, with her boyfriend. I had a welfare check done at said family home, and police were not able to locate him. I do not have proof of this as I can't hire a PI.
• In 2018, a protective order was placed against me by my son's paternal grandmother (on his mothers side) because I spat at her after a verbal altercation where she promised I would never see my son again. This has since been lifted years ago, and no other restraining / protective orders have been placed against me.
• After I received the petition, I had my brother type a short heart-felt letter offering my family & I's condolences, and explaining I would like to see my son via facetime or an in-person meeting to ensure his wellbeing. This note was left on the family home's door by my brother. I did not ask to take my son, just to see or speak with him. I've since found out she has filed for a temporary restraining order against me and used this letter as evidence. Her attorney states that "While this letter is not inherently threatening, we feel that My name
does not need to see My sons name
as this is a sensitive time for him." I now understand to only communicate via attorney's & not directly with petitioner or her family.
• I am financially stable, have stable housing under my name.
• I want full custody & want to include visitation rights to his mothers side of family as he has created a bond with them.
• I have since filed an answer & counter sued.
• I do have evidence of myself & other family members trying to reach out to my sons mother over the years, but were always ignored.
• I do have evidence showing I was financially taking care of my son, until his mother and family no longer accepted anything from me.
I am actively looking for an attorney.
ANY advice, questions, or tips I am open to. I understand courts dig deep, So I am being as honest and forthcoming about my situation as possible to get the best advice.

2023.06.10 05:30 VacationOk1291 Just got a bipolar diagnosis and feeling a bit nervous
Just got a bipolar II diagnosis and am a little nervous
Howdy. I'm a little overwhelmed and nervous by my new diagnosis. Maybe I'm looking for validation that it's the right step, I dunno.
I was diagnosed with anxiety when I was 16. I got on Lexapro then and stayed anxious through all of college. Like such severe anxiety that I couldn't go to the grocery store without panicking. Now I'm on Zoloft and doing so much better. I'm super outgoing and confident and just feel like a different person.
I'm 32f now and started noticing symptoms of ADHD in myself. Honestly, I was watching some tiktoks and kept going "haha that's so me" before I realized...wait.
I was: - having super short attention span - unable to stick with things - unable to remember anything - exhausted all the time (like taking 3 hr naps daily and falling asleep at stop lights) - dealing with extreme binge eating and excessive shopping - not sleeping because I just felt so wound up
My doctor put me on Vyvanse which helped to a degree. I could focus more. I realized that maybe the anxiety disorder could have been just a symptom of ADHD so I started (with doctor permission) tapering my Zoloft from 200mg daily to 100mg daily and 80mg of Vyvanse.
Today I was telling her that I am not so sure if it's working. I am still having those impulsive thoughts and actions, I'm still wiped out or so wound up I'm riding my workout bike at 3am, and I'm still just feeling a bit out of control. She said it sounds like I might have bipolar II. My brother also has it. She prescribed lamotrigine. Now I know all about the scary death rash so I'm good there.
I would be taking: 100mg 1x a day of Zoloft 80mg 1x a day of Vyvanse 25mg 1x a day of lamotrigine titrating up
It just seems like a lot of medication and that scares me. Is this normal? Like if my brain really is a garbage fire I'm cool with taking meds to put it out. What do y'all think? Was my anxiety disorder misdiagnosed as ADHD and bipolar? Maybe the anxiety was just for a few years before therapy taught me how to deal with us.

2023.06.10 05:28 The_Sqounkler Panic
I think I worry too much. Everything I do stresses me out. Even talking to my friends stresses me out. I’m worried I offended everyone. I’m worried I don’t seem interested enough. Im worried that everyone thinks I’m annoying. I somehow convince myself that if I talk to me teachers about my ideas they will slap me and tell me it’s stupid and bad and to go to the principals office. I think of every bad thing that could happen to me. I walk into the mall and I’m worried that I will walk into a store and knock over a stand and get banned from the mall and everyone in town will hate me. I’m worried to talk to my mom about things. I don’t even know why I fully trust her. Everything I do I think of at least 14 billion bad things that can happen. I worry that my friends hate me and force themselves to talk to me. I get worried about sitting in the car. Everything I do worries me. Even sitting in my room doing nothing I can think of 90 thousand bad things that can happen. I feel like I’m always shaking because I’m so paranoid. I hear a small creek and I convince myself that someone broke into my house and is going to kill my family and frame it on me and I go to jail and everyone hates me and I die. That’s a very common one. Or that someone is watching me until I fall asleep and then they will kidnap me and kill me. Again a common one. Everything scares me. I’m worried about everything. And I feel like I’ve always been that way. I remember being so worried that I wouldn’t tell anyone how worried I was because I was worried about that. I can’t fall asleep because everything that could happen comes to mind. I’m constantly paranoid and I’m sick of it. No matter what I do I’m scared. I fear things that could never happen. But I worry about them anyway. People say “Take deep breaths those will calm you down it’ll be alright” and I do but then I worry about what will happen if I take deep breaths. I will stutter when talking out of anxiety. I worry that I worry too much and then that worries me even more. I think it's impacting my life more than I thought it was. I can barely leave the house and come back without having an anxiety attack. I purposely don't do things I want to do because about this. I constantly question if my friends care about me and convince myself they don't. I can't be in any relationships at all whether it be platonic or romantic because I convince myself everyone hates me. This is making my life very hard.

2023.06.10 05:13 Affectionate_End3150 Botulism Concerns
I recently learned about botulism and am now super paranoid about gifts from my family, which are usually vacuum sealed or canned foods. My family goes morel mushroom hunting annually, and in the past I have put my haul in the dehydrator until crispy and then stored in a jar in the cupboard with a dessicator packet. The rest of my family dehydrates and then vacuum seals with a dessicator packet in the bag. Regardless, none of us store them cooked or frozen. Are we running the risk of botulism storing our mushrooms this way? What is the most safe way to store raw foraged mushrooms long-term? Additionally, my mom prepares a lot of jams without a pressure canner. I read that fruit jams aren't risky because the pH is too low for botulism to grow, but how do you KNOW what the pH is in a can of jam? She mostly cans berries or fireweed, but has been branching out to tomato-basil or blueberry-basil jellies. Thank you!!

2023.06.10 04:58 GuyOnTheMike Lincoln had one hit through 8 innings...then scored three runs in the 9th to walk-off Sioux Falls!
2023.06.10 04:57 shawbelt I want you to tell me not to give up.
Married 11 years today. 3 kids aged 6-9. He hasn’t spoken to me today. He’s mad at me for reasons that I accept full responsibility for. But it’s not just today on our anniversary that I feel neglected…there’s also Mother’s Day, where he was mad at me so didn’t tell me about brunch reservations until it was time to get in the car or we’d be late. We didn’t go. Then there was my birthday 3 months ago that went by without a card or gift, despite specifically asking for one and being met with “it’s not in the budget.” And I don’t think we’ve ever celebrated Valentine’s Day as a married couple. He’s “just not a gift giver and receiving gifts is stressful” to him. Nothing in my stocking on Christmas morning, though he did buy me a very nice gift that I asked for about a month beforehand, so that was my Christmas gift. It wasn’t the exact thing I asked for, which I had researched, but it was a less expensive and good option. For my 40th last year, he surprised me with an extravagant trip to Vegas, but he wouldn’t hold my hand in the airport because he doesn’t like public displays of affection. That’s when I found out—my 40th birthday and I’ve never felt more ugly and unwanted than that moment where he wouldn’t even acknowledge our life together in a warehouse of strangers coming and going. I was so devastated and falling apart and sobbed for basically the entire trip like a spoiled brat. But why am I so unloveable?! He’s scheduled a couples massage for my actual birthday and I was too depressed to go, so he went without me.
I want you to tell me I’m being a brat and too demanding. When he tells me he doesn’t think he can love me the way I want to be loved, I want you to tell me that he does through his actions—like that trip to Vegas (my first) and bringing me coffee every morning that he’s home (he works out of town 8 days a month). A few weeks ago, he was driving my car and noticed I needed new wiper fluid and filled it up—doesn’t that mean he loves me and is a good partner? He takes the kids to school in the morning (I love doing it, but he sees it as a way for me to wake up slowly bc I stay up late). He provides the majority of our income, which is a comfort to me. I don’t like shopping, so he goes to the grocery store and makes meals and keeps the kitchen tidy.
I understand that he has strong boundaries. He doesn’t like to touch me. He loves to be touched, but there’s something about me that just turns him off—whether it’s holding my hand in public or intimacy.
I’ve spent the last few years in therapy trying to accept what is. I love him so much and want the life we both imagine. I just don’t feel loved and adored. Are those optional? These are all normal feelings in any relationship, right? I feel so vulnerable begging my husband to love me and it’s been years. Maybe I’m just not seeing that he shows his love in ways that don’t strike my heart the way I want love to? Thank you.

2023.06.10 04:48 short_bed_showoff just a heads up out there for anybody with dubious AT&T reps in their store
if you see an AT&T rep making a TM uncomfortable, put yourself in between them or find a way to get them out of that situation.
one of our style girls just quit because one of the AT&T reps managed to track down her facebook and figured out what car she drove, and started being creepy in her DMs and driving by her house. this isn't the first time a rep did some shit like this too.
our SD is throwing a massive fit with district leadership right now, and has made a promise she'll kick out every single rep she sees. whether or not she'll get in trouble for this, who knows, but I hope she can get by without getting fucked. the shit we put up with from our reps is ridiculous and it's now starting to boil over.
if you see any of these reps doing this shit, report their asses. hell go above store leadership if you have to

2023.06.10 04:41 Edward_Warren Fraz-urb'luu's Gravenhollow: The Dungeon of Delusion
Hey everyone, I'm looking for some help with a peculiar encountedungeon I'm planning on running in Gravenhollow. As the title suggests, Fraz-urb'luu's gem has found its way inside Gravenhollow, and his maddening corruption has begun warping the place. I intend to have the party discover this not as part of the OotA module, but as part of a unrelated adventure that coincides with the events of the module. Here is what I have so far:
As Gravenhollow is a place where not only the records of everything that has ever occurred Underdark are stored, but in the people can interact with people from both the future and the past, it's a very bad thing that the Demon Lord of Deception has found his way inside. As his presence allows the corruption of the outside to trickle in, the library starts to fall under his control.
Echoes of people who never visited the library, or who never existed, now wander the halls. Some of them can become tangible and attack, and some are minions of Fraz only pretending to be projections. Fraz has used the library's strange connection with time to fashion a "body" for himself: a projection of himself at a time where he was free to do as he pleased.
It's not as strong as his real body, however, and shattering his gem would cause it to instantly vanish as Fraz is sent back to the Abyss. Perhaps it even thinks it's the real Fraz, or that it could do a better job than the "weakling" version of itself that got trapped in a gem and the party could actually play it against its creator?
People in the vicinity of the library start remembering vastly different accounts of historic events, some even bearing scars of made-up wars or tattoos marking them as demonic slaves. Clues lead the party to the library. If Fraz isn't exorcised from the library soon, he'll eventually use it to drive all of the heroic figures who ever visited it mad, changing history so that the Abyss consumed the world already.
How does this sound? I could use some suggestions for some interesting encounters, puzzles, roleplay opportunities, etc.

2023.06.10 04:32 Obviousaltaccount999 Weird dream
I have incredibly detailed and strange dreams almost nightly but I wrote this one down and wanted to share. It was also a musical so that was interesting lol. Sorry for the formatting, I wrote it all down half asleep as soon as I woke up.
Large parking lot like building has stores during the day like Japan open air market for clothes etc beautiful jewelry etc
As the sun goes down it turns more alt and punk the clothes get more alternative and there’s sex stores and piercing stores
Dark skin girl and white girl are friends and have a fun time there
Both girls get deep into the alt culture and eventually get famous
Dark skin girl gets famous and eventually gets the most tongue piercings record
White girl gets famous somehow basically for being hot
Weird moments of flashbacks to eerie moments on the streets
Dark skin girl running around trying to find the parking structure
When she’s there she’s happy and with friends and famous
She sings a song, light hearted about how happy she is, there’s an ensamble singing of all the people that hang out in the parking lot shop building
She goes to one of the sex shops and it’s kinda in an attic and has intense sex with the Asian guy
She’s the poster child for a piercing shop since she has the most tongue piercings and stands outside so people can walk by and make out with her
The Asian guy walks past and makes out with her intensely and people walk by like um y’all good
Flashback for dark skinned girl and she’s running through the streets scared, running through alleyways and construction. People on the street are wearing shirts that say things like you’re almost there get out etc. She happens upon a crashed cop car and she runs up to help. The cop says he crashed because someone stabbed him with a heroin needle while he was stopped at a light and dosed him. The girl starts to back away slowly and she feels the world getting dark and real around her. The cop says he stopped doing that shit when he was a kid and has been clean for 30 years. The girl backs away more and starts to run away, still looking for the parking structure. She finds it and everything is different, not happy. Run down. Ugly. She sees her white friend and Asian guy that she’s kinda dating now. She’s relieved but she asks what’s going on and they tell her she’s been doing heroin for the last year. She finally remembers the first time she tried it and realizes she’s been basically living in a dream this whole time. White girl doses her again and she passes out.
Asian guy is mad at white girl but she convinces him to keep lying to her and keep dosing her in secret. Hes being manipulated by her through emotional means as well as the fact that she buys him sex toys and sex merch etc. He’s a sex addict. She basically runs the underground drug sex mall at this point and he can’t really say no to her because she can ruin his life.
He continues to dose dark skinned girl and she continues thinking she has an amazing life being famous and hot and has everything she ever wanted
Meanwhile white girl is doing meth. She’s aware of everything that’s happening and is running the show. There really are shops and she helps run them. The shops also sell drugs and sex and she’s the kingpin and the pimp. We don’t know how it got to this point as we’ve been following dark skin girl the whole time. She has flashbacks too when she was like dark skin girl, happy and famous. There’s magazine covers showing white girl curvy and sexy she has thick hips and big boobs and a full face.
Asian guy comes to white girl a week or so later and tells her he won’t manipulate and secretly give drugs to dark skin girl anymore. White girl goes into a song about how she has everything he wants and she knows what he wants. She gives him cool shirts and sexy posters. Shirts with sexy girls on them. And he thinks for a moment but ultimately tells her no. Then the building grows shelves that are sky scraper heights and he’s trapped in them she’s still singing and her people that follow her start pushing stuff off the shelves at him all sex related merch and she’s singing about how he can’t escape she has everything he wants she gave him dark skinned girl to fuck however he wants.
Dark skinned girl hasn’t been dosed in a while and she’s starting to see reality again. She’s running through the parking lot market as it turns to more and more disturbing scenes. She ends up in a stairwell and is met with Asian guy and white girl arguing. She’s starting to understand and spirals down figuratively and literally. She ends up at the bottom of the stairs. We’ve never seen this area before. It’s dark and gross and looks like a torture chamber or cell or gross solitary confinement. White girl tells Asian guy see what you did. She’s miserable now. They say nothing and leave.
White girl is walking around the city and sees a park. She walks towards it and remembers for a moment her life before meth. She sees herself on the swings, decrepit and skinny and sad. We find out she’s anorexic here. In all her previous appearances she’s curvy and beautiful and full of color and life. The self she sees is in a white dress that is way too big for her and her face is skinny and her hair is dull. She’s sad that she’ll never be skinny and beautiful. She never eats but it’s not enough. She’s not beautiful. She sees herself doing meth for the first time. And how easy her life becomes. She’s able to never eat and be the beautiful girl she wants to be. She’s able to be a go getter and do all the things she’s always wanted to do. She does a million tasks at once and is good at every one of them. She turns around and does meth right there in the park.
Dark skin girl is in the stairwell but coming to. Asian guy is gone. She realizes where she is and remembers when she came her with her mom as a kid. They were shopping, they were poor. The girl sees a crystal dish ware set and asks her mom if they can have it. Her mom is shaking and nervous and almost says something before an old man worker comes over and asks if they want it wrapped up. The mom almost says something again and the old man secretly signals to the mom that it’ll be on the house, free. The mom says yes and they take the set home.
Dark skin girl physically climbs the stairs to get out of the dark gross place and once she’s not below the ground in a basement anymore, she’s sees the sunlight. It’s blinding and painful so she puts her hands over her eyes to shield some of the light. She sees the sun rising. It’s beautiful and she feels proud for getting out of the basement. She sees the natural beauty of the world for the first time since the old man gave them the dish set. She falls to her knees.
Then I woke up.
I don’t do drugs, I live a normal healthy life, but I have incredibly detailed and dramatic dreams like this almost daily. Thoughts? Lol

In the dark and twisted Fog, a new Hunter emerged, known only as The Tormentor. Born in the midst of the 1990s in South Korea, his life was a tapestry of torment and sadistic desires. From a young age, he displayed a disturbing fascination with pain and suffering, finding pleasure in the anguish of others. As he grew older, The Tormentor's perverse desires intensified, leading him down a path of sadistic experimentation. He delved into the realms of torture, honing his skills in the art of inflicting agony. The pain he inflicted upon his victims was excruciating and unparalleled, as he derived sick pleasure from every scream and whimper. One fateful night, The Tormentor's insatiable hunger for suffering drew him to an abandoned warehouse, where he had devised a new form of torture. He took delight in meticulously devising elaborate traps and tormenting mechanisms, designed to maximize the pain inflicted upon his helpless captives. However, as The Tormentor reveled in the suffering of his latest victim, an unexpected force intervened. The Fog, drawn to the depths of his sadistic pleasure, sought to claim him as its own. In a blinding flash of light, The Tormentor found himself transported to the fog-laden realm, forever separated from the world he once knew. Now trapped within the Fog, The Tormentor became a distorted reflection of his twisted desires. Armed with his massive hammer and a deadly chain, he stalks the Hunted relentlessly, relishing in their fear and vulnerability. He wields his chain with deadly precision, yanking the Hunted towards him, eager to savor their terror before delivering the final, brutal blow. Within the fog, The Tormentor's sadistic nature thrives, as he embraces his new role as an instrument of pain and terror. He takes perverse pleasure in tormenting those who have fallen victim to the Entity's games, perpetuating a cycle of suffering and agony that echoes his own twisted existence. Now, as the survivors find themselves trapped within The Tormentor's realm, they must confront their deepest fears and summon all their strength to outwit and outmaneuver the sadistic Hunter. Only through resilience, teamwork, and sheer willpower can they hope to escape his relentless pursuit and find a glimmer of hope in this realm of eternal torment.

Lore: Aiden Christianson was a dedicated police officer with an unwavering commitment to protecting the innocent. Throughout his career, he had encountered and brought many criminals to justice, but none had prepared him for the encounter with The Tormentor. Driven by his sense of duty, Aiden had been investigating a series of brutal crimes that had plagued the city. Rumors swirled about a sadistic individual who derived pleasure from inflicting pain on others, leaving behind a trail of broken bodies and shattered lives. Determined to put an end to the torment, Aiden tirelessly pursued every lead, determined to bring the perpetrator to justice. His relentless pursuit eventually led Aiden to uncover the identity of The Tormentor, a malevolent force who reveled in causing suffering. But Aiden's pursuit did not go unnoticed. The Tormentor, aware of Aiden's investigation, took pleasure in toying with the officer, setting traps and playing mind games to break his spirit. One fateful night, Aiden thought he had finally cornered The Tormentor, only to find himself trapped within the twisted halls of his malevolent domain. The Tormentor reveled in his captive, subjecting Aiden to unimaginable torment and pain. Days turned into weeks as The Tormentor relished in breaking the spirit of his victim. Aiden's body and mind bore the scars of his ordeal, but his determination to survive and bring The Tormentor to justice never wavered. The Tormentor's sadistic methods only fueled Aiden's desire to see him face the consequences of his heinous crimes. Now a Hunted survivor in the Fog, Aiden Christianson continues to carry the weight of his past. His experiences with The Tormentor have forged within him a resilient spirit and an unwavering determination to protect others from the horrors that lurk within the fog. Aiden's presence serves as a reminder of the darkness that can consume even the strongest, but also of the strength that can arise from the depths of suffering.

2023.06.10 04:27 AffectionateCommon86 How would you rank all the Downpour campaigns? (spoilers)
I just finished up all the Downpour characters tonight and I'm dying to know what everyone thought of their respective playthroughs! I had no idea how different they would be going in, and it was a delight discovering all the new mechanics and world changes. While I enjoyed all of them, I did prefer some more than others.
My personal ranking would probably be:
1 - Artificer. What an amazing way of doing a "hyper" character. Incredible offense and defence, but scavenger kill squads are by far trickiest threat I encountered in any of the playthroughs. Very cool and different with a gut-punch of an emotional core, especially when I looked up the alternate ending. Artificer stan for life.
2 - Rivulet. I didn't think I'd enjoy the "speedrun" character as much as I did, but Riv's mobility was just so much fun, and combining it with the threat of incredibly short cycles was genius. The story progression with Pebbles and Moon was the most gripping part of the Downpour narrative for me, and I loved seeing them reconcile after everything. Pebbles' music pearl makes me tear up every time. Submerged Superstructure was probably the coolest zone to end a playthrough on.
3 - Spearmaster. I really enjoyed Spearmaster's slow and steady offensive playstyle. They felt like a very tactical character with no absurd strengths, but infinite resources to work with. I had a blast going through a lot of the base game zones with them, but I didn't feel like they worked very well as the character who got to explore LttM pre-collapse. It felt like they had a lot of platforming and mobility-based challenges for a character designed around basic spear combat.
4 - Gourmand. Another slow and steady tactical character. I personally didn't care for their core playstyle so much (the exhaustion mechanic felt very anti-fun to me), but having incredibly powerful spears and being able to squish enemies by falling on them was super fun. The Gourmand's versatility in hunting was my favourite thing about them. A pretty vanilla campaign compared to the others, but it was lovely to see one of our slugcats finally return home at the end.
5 - Saint. I don't think the Saint's tongue and endgame boost were interesting enough powers to make up for losing spears and half the food mechanics. They felt like the least fun character to play for me, either too weak or too strong in a lot of situations. The heat mechanic was an interesting one, and I would've loved to play with it on a slightly more conventional character. Reaching 10 karma and realising I finally had a way to free Pebbles and Moon from their predicament was a very cool moment, and while it was neat to see them at the end in Rubicon, the final area as a whole felt very weak to me. A series of videogamey combat rooms was not what I wanted from Rain World, especially with the ascension power making them so easy. I wish Silent Construct had been Saint's final zone, as that ended up being one of my favourites of the whole DLC. A bit of a letdown to end on, but I did like the concept of the Saint remaining bound to the cycle of karma so that they could free others. A true saint.
How would you rank them?
