The boiling meat burned itself I'm not happy of the results. Now the house smells like shit and the meat will be given to the dogs. Good thing is, when going to the meatshop to buy steaks (because the thing that was boiling got its water evaporated), my complete overboard thinking on the ruined meal allowed me to talk to a nice looking girl. But still, the meat is completely ruined. My mother was supposed to eat that. Talk here about ocurrances in your life, good, bad and memetic
>>15805 Also writing something down can help to put it into different perspective or if it's a stressful experience it can help to ease the load. Imageboards aren't necessarily the right places for this tho.
>>15804 >>15806 One could find contentment in simplicity. Work is something one has to do. If you're working in 8 hours shifts, 5 days/week then you might easily find something meaningful in the rest of your time. Especially on the weekends. I would really recommend some outdoor activity, even if it's only in a park. With stricter work hours it's harder (lack of energy) but still doable. People in general aren't happy with their life, and by their thirties they often feel they are trapped. Even those in prestigious positions and on seemingly exciting fields.
Yesterday I found this and I think this is an incredible task: This man Zhou Huajuan, typeset his book (a translated version of a book about physics) with HTML and CSS. It's not a webpage. It's a book. I don't even know there is page element in HTML And it's Chinese. I can't even get my Chinese article to look right. 一本由译者自己排版的书：谈谈HTML+CSS在中文图书排版中的实际运用 http://gitbook.cn/books/595074f5b4d2717e5559d671/index.html
This is also the first time I learned such stuff from China. Before I only read Taiwan stuff.
I want to begin a new series about a Hungarian pen and paper role playing game I've already mentioned in other thread(s). It's called M.A.G.U.S. - Kalandorok Krónikái (Chronicles of Adventurers) and I wish to guide you through it's history, world and maybe even rules. Frankly I'm not well prepared and most likely not the best person for the job, but, well, I'm the only one here and this is the best it's gonna get. IRL talking with a real M.A.G.U.S. fan about M.A.G.U.S. is a real herculean challange as they can be extremely assburgerish about insignificant details, they can cite some careless comment from an obscure magazine's unknown article anytime and consider it rock solid canon they can base their opinion. It's worse to play it with an experienced fanatic as they are capable arguing to the point of the knife with the Kalandmester or Mesélő (Adventure Master or Tale Teller/Story-Teller, the DM, it's KM from no on) even if everyone knows the First Rule: the KM is always right.
Of course any other rpg can be discussed here, but I'd like to keep this thread for pnp or tabletop rpgs, crpgs should go into the Vidya thread.
>1st pic This is the Első Törvénykönyv (First Code of Law or Rulebook, from now on ETK). It was published in 1997 for the first time. >2nd pic The Nagy Zöld (Big Green). Well this is the real first rulebook, published in 1993. The rules were written for a few years (I saw some parts in a mag from 1991) still it was full of errors, fuck ups and inconsistencies some of them haunt even in current year and will haunt probably forever. Never read it btw. >3rd pic Második Törvénykönyv (Second Code of Law) published in 1995 so even this predates the ETK... This one... I don't think it is more than some shitty addendum, even the foreword states every rule in this book is optional. >4th pic The continent of Ynev. I've no idea how to pronounce it so I call it Inev. The world itself is called Satriale... no, Satralis it has two other continents noone cares about only some vague shit were written about them and are unplayable by default. I think the ETK not even mentions the planet or operates on the supposition that Ynev is the name of the world. In following posts you will meet names very typical fantasy worlds. Lots of them were borrowed from IRL or other fantasy resources so prepare some familiar sounding stuff.
Oh I forgot. It's just a typical medieval fantasy world, with elves, dwarves and orcs. Luckily I don't know anything about gay-ass halflings.
The native non-human race of Beriquel and the northern shores of Ynev where they were expelled expelled from by the Kyrs. From their island they returned thousands of years later and made a pact with Gianag and settled in the mountains of Traidlan where they built their country, Tarin, and mostly underground cities. Some communities of the Dwarves migrated further and they formed several colonies in the North, maybe even in the South as well. They were created during the battle of Bul Ruurig and Tyrrano, two gods, when their blood fell onto stones. Bul Ruurig the Stone Father accepted them as his but Tyrrano sent monsters created by him (maybe Aquirs). Dwarves only acknowledge their ties to Bul Ruurig tho. Beside him they have three other gods. First and foremost is Kadal, the Echo of Adits. He's the son if Bul Ruurig and now the main god of the pantheon, patrons of Dwarves. Sometimes he sends mortal envoys to his people to help them. The first envoy was Tooma, the Axeman (or rather Axedwarf), who was elevated to godhood by him. Tooma is their God of War ofc and his priests are the best Dwarven warriors. When it turns out such warrior is a chosen of Tooma the other clerics initiate him to get the full powers of a cleric. The last god might not be god entirely but he is worshiped. He is Zimah, the Runaway, originally a cleric (might be of Bul Ruurig), some great figure of the migration from Tarin. His followeres are mainly from among those who chose to leave that place and settle elsewhere. I dunno who he reached godhood. Every Dwarf's soul has a dark side, the Gloombrother who constantly challange the morality of the Dwarf and tempt him to choose the easier way, avarice and general selfishness. He is very impulsive. It's a great shame to give in to the Gloombrother. This has two fun things. First, even Bul Ruurig has a Gloombrother, he forged him into his battleaxe. He is Sugró and he always tempted the god to use his battleaxe and when he proved not to be willing, Sugró just deserted him. Second, the player - if he plays a dwarf - can choose to give in, which could make the game more unpredictable and exciting.
These guys look like they were copied from ancient Egyptian art as I mentioned before. They aren't very pleasant dudes just like their gods. They have four. Themes - the Sun god, Refis - the Earth Mother and their children, Nesire - the Red Moon, goddess of love and beauty, Amhe-Ramun - the Blue Moon, god of war and unity. It's all fine and dandy but they are all twisted. Themes is a creation/destruction god, his priests force the acolytes to look into the Sun for five minutes. Those who aren't blinded can become a cleric, those who are... get burned alive. Refis is a fertility goddess, but they believe the fertility comes from the rotting corpses, so her priests frequently commit suicide or sacrifice pregnant women. Nesire is occupied by carnal pleasures she's nothing to do any fertility despite she's the goddess of love. Her priestesses enjoy orgies what praying mantises would enjoy, during copulation they frequently kill their mates. And we arrived to Amhe-Ramun. The god who always tries to return and help his people to exterminate the Janns and Humans just like they did with the followers of the other Amund gods. Yes, they are no more. There might be some in hiding here and there but very few. The Amund enmity with the Janns is an ancient one. They were fought before arrived to Ynev, and after with the help of the Elves they destroyed their surroundings, the Janns chose to embrace (or utilize) Humanity the Amunds retreated and isolated themselves. Btw they have full blue eyes like those who consume melange in the Dune's universe.
>>16124 It was the last post on the religions/cultures. I could write more on the default Human civilizations (e.g. Northern Alliance with the Pyarronite Commonwealth, Shadon, Abasis) but it really is just regular medieval fantasy mostly.
>>16125 Thanks for sharing, buddy. As an amerifat it's always nice to have someone share the foreign /tg/ stuff that nobody feels like translating. In thanks I'm going to (try to) talking about the first Japanese TRPG to get a full and official English translation. The one that paved the way for all the rest.
>>16137 Wait. The T in TRPG is stand for Tactical and not Tabletop right? The word tactical is usually related to military matters and this game is about.. maids I guess. This will be amusing. I'm looking forward to it.
>>16125 I also could write some more about the psi and magic, maybe about the rules a bit more and something. But for now I want to concentrate on other matters dragged far too long. One more thing. The new rulebook they were planning for the end of 2017 beginning of 2018 is still under construction. There might will be more news in May. They do have a certain amount of material for it, but I'm very skeptical.
1. One woman killed her husband's sister. They shared an small apartment and had lots of arguments. Allegedly after a fight over inheritance, the woman killed the relative, then sealed the dead body with concret in her room. Somehow her husband didn't notice his sister didn't come out from her room for three days, until the company the sister worked for began to worry for her. 2. A controversial writer died. He had been a political prisoner in martial law era and a lawmaker later. 3. Coal power plant expansion program got into controversy.
Guess Who, a PTS program, gets English dubbing and subtitles. It seems they want it to be a showcase for foreigners. https://youtube.com/watch?v=4G8FanAR15E [Embed] This episode is about a family with ADHD kid The season 9 was better. It has a family on a remote island
>>18 >What do you speak? English >What are you learning? Dutch, Spanish >What languages would you like to know? Dutch, maybe Russian >How are you learning? Duolingo, trying to read a Dutch translation of the Bible. Trust me, the dictionary is my friend.
>What languages do you already know? Estonian, English >Which are you learning? Russian >Which would you like to know? German, Finnish maybe >How are you learning? I try to lurk on 2ch every day, look through a few flashcards and read, but I've been losing motivation recently.
>>16069 Yea timezones would be an issue combined with the fact that we don't have much activity in the first place. Also mage builds would be pretty boring without custom spells anyway I guess. >>16075 Morrowind is still worth a try if you haven't tried it before. Unlike other TES games the writing and setting is actually interesting.
I've seen news about new release of JA2 Stracciatella recently and decided to give it another try. Actually, it is pretty good, they reimplemented all jagged alliance 2 properly (at least it seems so). Only problem that in 1920 everything is too small, but whatever. I played original more than ten years ago.
It is a rare game that has good Russian translation, they mostly suck.
Hej, mam pewien problem, otóż moja dziewczyna zdradziła mnie z anonem Nowociota here i szukam protipow żeby przestać być normikiem, chciałbym być taki fajny i chłodny jak te słynne anony i ruchać dużo lasek
Opowiem jak to się stało.. . Chodziłem z moją dziewczyną już pół roku, zaprosił ją na domówkę mój kolega, tam się poznaliśmy i po paru tygodniach zaczęliśmy ze sobą "chodzić". Moja przygoda z chanami zaczęła się, kiedy ona powiedziała mi, że odkryła takie fajne forum, które "krytykuje" obecną rzeczywistość. Nie wiedziałem o co chodzi, ale zaczęła mówić dziwnego słownictwa i uzywać żartów jak facebookowe śmieszki z grupek. Kiedy powiedziałem jej, że idziemy na miasto, to odpowiedziała, że wychodzenie na miasto jest dla normików. W konsekwencji, siedziałem sam z moimi znajomymi i nie wiedziałem co robi, bo nie było jej na fonie. Nie wiedziałem, że jej nowi koledzy z internetu podpowiedzieli jej - pierdol tych normików, strzel sobie acodin.. Niedługo potem na jej komórce odkrylem nagie zdjęcia. Odpowiedziała, że lubi się fotografować nago. Wtedy jeszcze nie wiedziałem, że będać naćpana acodinem kurwiła się i rozsyłała swoje fotki kolegom z chanów. A może nawet normalnie na trzeźwo, teraz sam już niewiem. Ogólnie, to dopiero potem odkryłem, że zaczęła mieć dużo "kolegów" z internetu, ale byłem w niej zakochany, nie skojarzyłem nagich fotek z tym faktem. Wtedy już mniej więcej ogarniałem co to chany, i gdy zacząłem być zazdrosny i pytać się, po co gada z jakimiś kolesiami z neta, odpowiedziała, żebym się nie martwił, bo to takie lamusy, ale są smutni i nie mają z kim pogadać, więc ona może im trochę "pomóc". Było to dla mnie dość śmieszne i dziwne, ale wtedy za dużo o tym nie myślałem, bo miałem dużo rzeczy na głowie. Jej siedzenie na GG zaczęło mnie denerwować, a kulminacją tego było, "spotkanie" z jakimś anonem. Słyszałem wymówki, że to tylko kolega, że to jakiś zamulacz i pogada sobie z nim troche i tyle. Trochę buldupłem, bo zobaczyłem jak odczytuje snapa od tego kolegi na którym był jakiś przystojniak z podpiskiem "Przystojny ale spierdolony".. Oglądając go lekko się zarumieniła, ale ja byłem za bardzo zakochany, żeby zorientować się, że coś jest nie tak.
W skrócie, to anon naćpał ją i wyruchał po 15 minutach, a potem przestał się odzywać. Moja GF bardzo płakała, dowiedziałem się o wszystkim po tygodniu, bo napisała mi smutna i zapłakana, że anon ją zablokował i że mnei bardzo przeprasza itp. Czułem się tak, że on jej nie chciał i dlatego przyszła spowrotem do mnie, nie wiedziałem co robić.
Za jakiś czas ktoś napisał do mnie:
Ja pierdole twoja laska z którą chodziłeś poł roku i którą można wyruchać po 15 min była dziewicą, ty cucku pierdolony xDDDDD Na chuj ty żyjesz
Anoni, jak być takim fajnym i cool anonem, dajcie protipy żeby nie być cuckiem normikiem itp. Mam zasagować swoją dziewczynę? To pierwszy krok? Bo jakoś nie mogłem do tej pory
