I think it would be fun to swing around and get a feel for it and check out treatises and manuals people wrote through history, besides just displaying it somewhere in home of course. It would be fun I think to practice some proper forms with it, and then rig up some test cutting/striking.

do any wizards like tea? specifically loose leaf teas? if so, any specific blends or varieties you like/recommend?


i recently got into gongfu brewing and it's pretty much the only thing i've been thinking about these days. i found this hole in the wall tea shop in the chinatown in my city and purchased a shou pu'erh tea cake that i've been picking away at.

I contemplated on which board to post this and ultimately decided I'll do it on /hob/ this time, as it seems to me that collecting and enjoying pictures of houses, towns, areas, natural scenes etc., is in fact kind of a hobby.

So post pictures that you associate with comfyness. I personally have a thing for forest cabins and quaint little town streets.

This is the first time I see a female cartoonist in this kind of trouble. Chris Savino went to jail for harass some female coworkers, and the guy of Clarence had some kind of psychological problem and refused to take his medication. He touched the butt of another female in an elevator while he was singing they may be giants.

When The Mickey Mouse shorts used flash animation/Toonboom/etc they were applying a style of post-modern animation (tweening and other methods I'm unfamiliar with) to a Fleischer era style that felt lacking in animation in itself compared to Mickey's later incarnations that had more fluid animation after they lost the dark pac-man eyes altogether. Meaning they were reviving a classic style that was dead enough to be considered public domain.

I personally see it as akin to when the Nippon Television Network Corporation of Japan restored The Sistine Chapel in 1980. This in the sense that whether it looks as good as the original or not (after the restoration) it still didn't look as good now as it did during the first years after it was made anymore. So as long as they do an extremely good job it's still going to be worth marvelling at all the same.

The New Looney Tunes Shorts, however, dont have this feeling: even during the Fleischer era their animation was clearly better than the aformentioned Mickey Mouse shorts of said time, so they deserved to look better than your average Newgrounds cartoon.

Don't get me wrong: I love this sort of animation, albeit on stuff like Blockhead by Michael Swain or anything Greasy Tales has made as their brand of humour feels more suited for this look and feel.

The aesthetic of The Looney Tunes shorts, however, would look better if they were animated by someone of either Zeurel or
Paul Ter Voorde's quality if Harry Partridge is a pipe dream.

Reread a fanfiction I made in 2008 for inspiration on a current one.

Interestingly, I also read an original piece I wrote in 2008. I've got to say that younger me really had a knack for writing good action and choreography, but I'll never live down the melodrama I used as filler. The grammar was fine but the sentence structure was very formulaic and dry.

Working on this right now:
https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/28955/autist-isekai

Back then in Jan '19 I was doing 500+ words a day(for a chapter a day, since royalroad needs a minimum of 500)
https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/22597/stupid-cat

It was painful to get such bad reviews on Stupid Cat. I didn't like the story much either, but I did my best. It took a long time to pull all the pieces together, and Autist Isekai is some of my best work yet.

I still have that "I don't know if I like this…" feeling all the time. I'm editing these days. Which is good. I couldn't read my own work, so it would always be awful.

Now that I have a week to do a chapter I can write it, then ponder if it's any good or not. I've slipped into doing it last minute, and that made my last chapter a bit rushed.

I'm not that happy with my own work, but I am happy that it got done, no matter how weird it gets.

Does anyone else have the problem where they can think of all sorts of themes and interesting things but can't synthesize them into a coherent or non-cliche plot? Maybe I really should just take the advice to just "start writing" just so I can get something down. I'm far too perfectionist. If every sentence isn't perfect I get blocked up

I'd be lying if I said I've never been there as well.

No really: I wrote a 60k fanfiction with everything you described in 2012: action, choreography, and I even flat out admitted that melodramatic Sean Penn movies inspired some of the more word heavy dialogue (specifically Mystic River, The Game, and At Close Range).

Can we have a thread to share, analyze and discuss paintings?

I want to know more about this world. After reading Schopenhauer's brilliant work (The World as Will and Representation) I've developed a deep respect for art and artists that I didn't have before and I want to know more about this world.

Feel free to share and talk about your favorite artists and what they mean to you.

I tried to read sandman two times when I was a Teenager, but I left it in the issue where Chesterton appeared because I couldn’t understand it. I finished it a couple of months ago. Just in the issue where Lucifer leave the hell, I realized the bad taste I used to have for stopped reading it. Even if the main characters are abstract concepts with human form, they have feelings and sorrows. And the secondary characters that are just humans are not less interesting just for being normal people. The day by day of the stories flow with naturality that could be boring in other kind of comics or books. The everyday bitching of work, money, relationships, politics and sex that make the Stephen King novels so boring, if you are not from the U.S, Especially from Maine, it’s a part of the comic i couldn’t understand the first times I tried to read it. Now I can’t understand how Neil Gaiman makes possible writing about that without being boring.
The Only flaw I have with this comic is the Issue Where Marco Polo appears. I know an Argentinean comic about him which does a better job. It’s called El Libro Secreto de Marco Polo. The best chapter is where he knows Samuel Taylor Coleridge in the dream Palace of Kublai Khan.

Has anyone read 5e's fucking Ravenloft?
Just some of the horrid shit in it:
>Strahd's played off as what amounts to Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Angelus levels of edge, literally feels nothing and seemingly has no interests above the usual, though not for the same Bram Stoker's Dracula tier reasons, Literally just wants Tatanya as if a meaningless trophy on his belt
>These dumb faggots made it so that Strahd wants to turn whatsherface not into a vampire bride, or hell, even a true vampire, BUT VAMPIRE SPAWN (You know, sniveling wall crawling nosebleed assface monster vamps?)
>Tatanya's a nigger
>The reincarnation is a nigger
>Strahd's wives are niggers
>Nigger Mayor of a town surrounding the land
>Evil white "everything is fine man"
>Strahd's a Bisexual sodomite degenerate with two male consorts to boot
>Made Barovians "Diverse"
>Made Strahd's conquering of the land sound tyrannical as fuck and less just
>Made it so that Some have Barovians have souls and some don't because of 5e's ravenloft being in a private demiplane, stopping newborn bodies from getting souls, in a piss-poor attempt to mimick the Old demiplanes of dread thing where some residents are literally just NPCs made by the powers, even though this makes no sense to anyone who's had to deal with Gulthias in 3.5 and Ashradorn in the whole Soul font thing with the ban on unborn souls in lore, so these people should be getting souls, because otherwise the demiplane would have to deny all positive energy for this shit to even remotely work
>All done because they're too lazy to redo the demiplanes of dread just like before,
>Strahd now heals for 20 in his fast heal
>Mongrel Men are the results of Racemixing past the half-race stage suffer for it, check their description and it's fucking played off as a good thing despite them being ugly mutants beyond redemption in their racial descriptions, the self-unawareness is real

What happened to the huge amount of campaign settings for dnd 3.5? In reading the midnight campaign setting right now. It may look a little to edgy, it’s basically the lord of the rings were Sauron won, but it has the idea of how to be a hero in a world where everybody despise you for causing trouble to them, because most of the people of town and villages only wants to live in the most peaceful way, in a world where legions of orcs can steal the crops, kill your family, and rape your succubi (mostly if you are a dwarf) and there’s those people can do about that, because if those people tries to do something, or even worse, get help from adventurers and the local movements of resistance, you can be sold as a slave and be the food of a bunch of hungry orcs.
Scarred Lands was like a Midnight with a brighter spark of hope. It was created by a White Wolf Team, so you can expect the plots of the campaigns to be based more on interpretation than combat. It was based on greek mythology, the gods and the titans fought 100 years ago, destroying almost everything in the world. The setting even had a city based on the necromancer stories of Clark Ashton Smith.
Forgotten realms was okay, but I never liked who generic it was. The most interesting part was the Yuan Ti and the part of Faerun based on Babylonian mythology.
I know there’s a bunch of settings, Eberron, Kalamar, Kingdoms of iron and Ravenloft and one where it was at the dawning of time or something like that. They have new editions or nobody wants to see them anymore?
