Blade barrier is fucking amazing!
  • It has absolutely annihilated the entire groups of enemies for me. One spell won several encounters. When you're shooting them with range, they have no choice but to try to escape, and they'll often walk through the entire thing and kill themselves. It's pretty crazy. I doubt it would work that well in a table top game since the DM would likely jump out of it, or figure something else out, but the game logic engine will just walk them right through it and kill them all.

  • UFC fighter Bryce Mitchell says homeschooling his son will keep him from being gay
  • Upbringing can stifle who you are, but not destroy it. Over sheltering can backfire badly. I'm from a conservative Christian household, and so are all of my close friends, and we went way wilder than average people when we got our freedom in college.

  • I did not fully anticipate just how lonely and depressing an evil playthrough is.
  • That definitely would have been very dark. I never encountered that scene, probably because I didn't spend much time talking to the random tieflings.

    Edit: now I remember what you're talking about! The durge scene! Oh man, I only chose nice options for her because I was so stoked about having a bard companion in the party. I was very disappointed with the outcome.

  • What's the most expensive thing you've come to own that you've never gotten to fully use?
  • I am really sorry to hear about your predicament. Idk about Canada, but in the USA there's an organization called The Family Law Facilitators, and they will help people who don't have any money in your situation. At the very least they can provide you with options and let you know what's available to you, legally and otherwise. I strongly suggest you try to find a similar organization in Canada and reach out for some help.

  • As a capable but lazy user, how much would switching to Arch frustrate me?
  • mouses

    Hehe.

    I haven't had any issues getting stuff to work on Arch. I had a really hard time getting my webcam working in Pop, which is plugged into my monitor, and then the monitor into my computer. When I plugged it directly into the computer I was able to configure it and then I could put it back into the monitor and it worked. But those kinds of edge case scenarios will pop up when using Linux, regardless of the distro. The difference is that the OS is not going to try to block you from fixing it yourself, like Wondows or Mac do.

  • I did not fully anticipate just how lonely and depressing an evil playthrough is.

    I'm currently on my 3rd playthrough, and I'm playing as a dark urge character who gives into his urges. For spoiler prevention I'll describe what I just finished as vaguely as possible. I just completed the durge objective that gives you a powerful reward in act 2.

    This is depressing. All of the good that I accomplished in my first two playthroughs is absent. My camp is nearly empty. Lae zel's lifeless body has been laying in my camp for 2 full acts. Karlach, Wyll, Zevlor, Damon, Jaheira, and many others are dead, either by my hand or because of my actions.

    I didn't fully appreciate just how lonely and depressing, self-serving life would be. I have more gold and loot than either of my other playthroughs, and I'm more powerful, but to what end? My own lonely existence? I don't think that I will continue past this point. I've accomplished what I set out to do, which was experience the game as an evil character. I don't think I need another 50 hours of this to pound the point home.

    Hats off to Larian for making such an emotional and realistic game, full of vibrant and exciting characters. I don't enjoy the world where I have betrayed them all.

    Astarion can't talk to Raphael?

    In my first playthrough he was able to talk to Raphael outside of the Gauntlet of Shar. This time Raphael just left without ever giving Astarion a chance to ask any questions. So, I reloaded a save, did the whole House of Healing fight again, made sure to have Astarion selected when we approached the Gauntlet, and it auto switched to my character when the conversation started and he left again. Have they changed this sequence? Is it bugged? Do only certain dialogue choices give you a chance to barter?

    Instance filters are not working

    I've added some instances to the instance filters, yet I continue seeing those instances. Is there something else that I need to do to block entire instances?

    The Left Has Fallen Into Reaction
    lithiumagazine.com How the Left Is Becoming Reactionary - Lithium Magazine

    We need to move toward a leftism that truly loves normal people, appreciates the culture of our base, and most importantly, is of our base.

    How the Left Is Becoming Reactionary - Lithium Magazine

    We need to learn, or relearn, how to build comradeship and solidarity instead of doing capital’s work for it by condemning and abusing each other. This doesn’t mean, of course, that we must always agree—on the contrary, we must create conditions where disagreement can take place without fear of exclusion and excommunication.” – Mark Fisher

    Assassin is actually amazing!

    I hadn't tried it in 2 different playthroughs because it's rated really low online. But since I've used the other builds already, I figured I'd give it a go for Astarion in this new playthrough. He has an item that makes him invisible for two turns whenever he kills someone, which basically makes him a one man killing machine. For 3 different battles now I've split him off from the group and sent him out ahead to sneak attack the enemy group. Welp, reinforcements were never needed. He sneak attacks from range, turns invisible, moves away so he can't be detected, and attacks again. Each attack one-shots his victim, and he can make quick work of entire groups of enemies.

    I can see that this build wouldn't be great for unexpected battles, or outright confrontation, but when you know that you want to fight, dang man! It's amazing.

    If you happen to find that item that gives invisibility on kill, then I highly suggest getting a good bow, and giving assassin a try. It seems like it would be a good option for a playthrough without companions, as long as you are able to get back into stealth after attacking.

    How do I preserve my messages settings?

    Every time I get a notification that someone has commented or messaged me it is back to the Show All option, even though I've set it to Show Unread a hundred times already.

    I am confident that I could successfully fight off 100 duck sized horses.

    But I doubt I could fight off one horse sized duck.

    [SOLVED] N.I.B. - Black Sabbath

    I think this one needs a clue. The genre is heavy metal music, and the band is from the 70's.

    This paralyzed debuff is a bit long. Eh?

    I didn't do anything to trigger it. I just hit an enemy with the t5 hammer. The weapon was not cursed. This is most certainly a game breaking bug.

    Edit: this is Experienced Pixel Dungeon
