honestly this was, like, originally just a zelda shitpost, but also it's actually kinda horny too,

ah yes, botw, or "bottom of the wild",

oh I was wondering why people were talking about crusader kings recently. guess ck3 came out like a week ago apparently

Fallen London complaining 

Especially the Ambition situation. Pretty sure they promised to rework the rewards, which kinda makes me want to hold off on doing an ambition to see what it ends with... but then that just makes this more annoying. Especially cause rn if I want the most Value I probably want to do HD, but I'm torn between HD and LF roleplay-wise for my char.

And sure, I guess, like, you can raise most of the new stats to 7 (except Shapeling Arts, still), and they are adding these boosting items, and you can argue that, yes, they need to make money to keep going... but it stings and is frustrating.

Fallen London complaining 

For example: If I want my Artisan of the Red Science at 10, my options are... finish either Heart's Desire or Light Fingers with a certain ending, or get an Election item, which will be available again in, like, 11 months, and to some degree effectively cost Fate, because you only get one of the many Election items for free each year... and I'm very "behind" (though it would be impossible to have them all w/o paying).

Or, like, look at Kataleptic Toxicology items. All of them are either Ambition (mainly ending items), Fate, Seasonal (one is Seasonal Fate and the other is Election which is practically Fate imo as above), or T3 profession.

And I could go on with the rest of the stats, but it's more of the same. Ambition items, which are mainly the endings (except for Heart's Desire, the mentioned precieved better rewards), which you only get one of, Fate, seasonal, and especially a bunch that are seasonal Fate or near enough.

Fallen London complaining 

I'm not totally sure if things being Fate locked or seasonal is more annoying (having to spend real money I can hardly afford vs having to wait for a narrow window of an entire year), but there's a clear most annoying category: Fate locked and seasonal items.

Really sucks because it feels like there's a lot more of them coming up with the new stats, and ofc maxing them is generally useful in one way or another

That or they're from the ambition endings, and don't even get me started (gigantic echo/action dumps, unbalanced feeling items from the different ambitions, etc).

honestly considering opening my pc again here sometime to find wherever the stupid blue LCD on the inside that shines out through the glass panel is and cover it because it means we can't stand having our desktop on whole trying to sleep

it's also just kinda funny because for years I literally had Christmas lights on in my room 24/7/365, and my desktop was rarely powered off, only rebooted
and at some point I just took them down and went the absolute other direction in an attempt to sleep better
not sure it actually helped, especially because way too much light still comes through my blinds, but

Show thread

random tip:
black electrical tape works quite well in my experience for covering up pesky LEDs, especially ones that are too bright when trying to sleep

problem is that at least my roll of tape likes to get less sticky and leave residue after a while, but especially in low contact areas it works nice

not like we smoke, so it's not for that, and even if we did, it'd probably be cannabis vaping, tbh, so. fire not needed

Show thread

we'd be most likely to find a butane lighter useful in an everyday sorta sense, i think, and otherwise the point would mostly just be for emergencies / "emergencies", which makes a cheap, long lasting lighter make sense... but also there are better emergency/survival options, maybe, a zippo would be cool but.... maybe not practical enough, even with a portable fuel canister, electric lighters are neat but not widely useful.

Show thread

most tempted to either buy a butane lighter or just get like a couple cheap bics from like a gas station or walgreens, but there's also like. a bunch more options

Show thread

mmh. looking at lighters and fire starters in general and I probably want to get something but there are so many options and I'm not even totally sure what exactly I'm looking for/want.

Augh. Just spent like half an hour trying to figure out why chakatsden.com has been down and if Bernard Doove is okay. finally found fimfiction.net/blog/914470/art which shows he's probably still okay and is doing server stuff, but doesn't quite explain the long downtime (especially since I feel like it was broken before this was posted, certainly for more than just yesterday). :v

I am learning Deeper Magics of NixOS tonight. Looking into the implementation of the module system, and figuring out exactly how mkMerge/mkOverride/mkOrder are processed.

Also very nice for the new stats this year, too. My first Mithridacy item, Red Science, Player of Chess...

Show thread

Also: turns out Fruits of the Zee is really good for BDR improvements. I'll have gotten essentially a +4 from all the Fruits items by the end, and several are BiS.

Show thread

So, like... I'll hopefully get another 2 from Fruits of the Zee, if I went for a yacht, I could get another 2, and then... everything is pretty much out of reach for now.

Show thread

Like... I'll be getting one soon from Fruits of the Zee, One is ambition or Whitsun (and probably effectively Fate locked), I can reasonably get one more on weapon from Fruits (other improvements are ambition, Feast Fate, or seeking), one more from a Fate locked transport (or ambition item), I can get a ship, and then in theory I could get 2 or 3 from a spouse, but the 2 are Feast Fate locked and the 3 is... very expensive Fate locked, I believe.

Show thread

I'm startlingly close to being maxed out on BDR, wow. I mean, theoretically, I can get 11 more, actually, which... sounds like a lot, but I'm at 28, and most of the remaining possible improvements are Fate and/or time locked, or in one case, from Seeking, so.
