Hi. What fantasy book series are Wizards into?

I'm looking for people who can talk about these epic sagas, like Malazan the kingkiller the wheel of Time since most haven't read them.

Is China Miéville still writing fiction? I remember reading the Bas- Lag Trilogy a couple of years ago. It was likePlanescape written for 2000AD. His last book was an essay about how good was living in the USSR, compared to the previous regime, at least in Russia. I don’t know if he actually believes that.


If you like the post apocalyptic stories, I highly recommend the Wastelands anthology by John Joseph Adams. The authors include: Orson Scott Card,George R. R. Martin,JackMcDevitt,Catherine Wells, and Gene Wolfe along with other writers.


What Happened in Dune after the last book written by Frank Herbert? I don’t know if I should read the sequels written by Brian Herbert just for knowing what happens next.


What´s the difference between dark and edgy in fantasy? Every dark novel is edgy by definition, or a novel can be dark without being edgy?


darkness is the atmosphere and tone, edge is more specifically about the characters, how they develop and what the writer does to them

Recently I've been getting into photography. I've found that after doing so, I perceive moments in different ways. Things simultaneously seem more transient, yet more permanent. It's a sensation that's difficult to describe, except to say that I am more 'aware' of the moments around me. For obvious reasons I have avoided urban areas, but in terms of landscapes and natural shots, it is quite peaceful.

Any photography hobbyists here?

Any wizards into Canoeing? Just bought myself a Peterborough Wooden Handcrafted canoe and about to test this out on a ride. I've had a straw one before this to see if I'll like the hobby or not, and I ended up having lots of fun with it.


Don’t have a canoe, but I kayak sometimes. There’s a waterway very close to me so I can just walk over with the kayak and get going.


my dad tried to get me to kayak my entire life, I've done it quite a few times, way too much work for someone that sits on their pc 24/7


used to go kayaking with my dad when i was younger

there were snakes in the water though all the time…

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

This is why warhammer roleplay and castle drachenfels will always be superior

absolute heresy


I’m trying to remember the name of a tabletop rpg based on the works of Clark Ashton Smith and Robert E Howard. Does anyone know if a game like this exists or is just my imagination?


The Hp Lovecraft Tabletop?


call of cthulhu


It as a sword and sorcery game, something like Conan in Zotique or Hiperborea.

Anyone else grow? Thinking about it? Ask me anything if you're interested. Right now I'm growing 4 Sour Cookies that ended up all being widely different phenos.

I fail to see how people posting on wizchan that weed is gay and stupid would prevent anyone anywhere from using it themselves. I love weed, no one ITT is capable of taking it away from me. And if some jackass saying that weed is for niggers is enough to convince others that it’s bad then they probably aren’t worth “helping” in the first place.


Antiweed retards should be banned because they're just being disruptive and nobody cares about their opinions.


If you cloud up your mind, put it through a meat-grinder using drugs alcohol and cigarettes, and you pay for this. Well I don't know what to tell you.


I don’t care much for my sober mind.

i'm looking forward to get one of those mainly for practical purpose (killing insects) but before i'd like to know if they're reliable as such or if it's just a myth. i heard the drosera species was the one that needed the less care and thus was perfect for beginners.
if anyone has experience with those plants feel free to share your knowledge

>and can sense I am a living dead.
That's fucking dumb.
Flys love dead stuff almost as much as they love shit.


Depends. Bumblebees avoid the stench death.


I'm no entomologist but I don't think bumblebees are flies.


i just get tiny fruit flies from upstairs. they breed in the kitchen sink and come down into my room via the air vent

recently put my computer case's filter screen over the room's air vent though. seems to have stopped them. thank the lord


I got one for a friend; he prefers plants that "do something".

how to come up with lots of (good) script for your comic? i think i have the characters and setup but i dont know if my texts are placed nicely against each other or just anything

how should i measure this especially since we cant just pull back bad comics i hope to make one consistently good run


There is a writing thread.
Use that to ask such questions.

Here we don't primarily talk about our personal experiences (there's /dep/ for that) but post informative and educational videos and share interesting articles and/ or books about the topics.

Also feel free to discuss whatever topic regarding both disciplines comes to mind, from certain mental illnesses to the general merit of psychology and psychiatry.

Good post. Also I am pretty sure I recognize your post from similar posts you have made on /dep/ in the past. These we're the more useful takes on psychology I have seen so far. I even saved some of your posts. Still it's kind of a fatalistic view on the whole thing attributing the cause of real change to unnkown forces.

Personally I feel like change for the most part is a superficial part of adaption to external demands. Once environment changes we are forced to make new actions and somehow we are able to operate under new permises although we haven't done theses actions before. At first these new actions feel very unnatural and they require effort and time but after a while it gets easier. However this adaption on an operating basis which also includes processing information and responding in a way that is useful for survival and egoistic desires does not touch our deeper mindset that remains in the back lurking. This lurking mindset always will fill us with a certain degree of scepsis and aversion to the new things that we get used to over time. We learn to live by these new conditions but we never fully integrate them, there's always a sense of a slight but noticeable separation between what we do and what we are. The more this separation splits open the less we are confident with ourselves and the more we are prone to mental illness and taking abrupt and discharging measures like suicide or giving in to complete madness and catatonic states.


you do apparently.


>it's kind of a fatalistic view on the whole thing attributing the cause of real change to unnkown forces.

I think it's useful to acknowledge that no modality has understood psychological change, otherwise they'd be able to maximize it beyond every other one and there would a clear winner statistically. People do happen to change, even in therapy, it's just that it's completely random and has very little to do with the methodology itself. The funny thing is that even modalities that do the opposite things, produce the same outcome, meaning that they are so far off the mark that it doesn't really matter what they do at all, people will change but not consciously and deliberately.

The thing that all them have in common is that beyond their supposed elegant theory of change, in practice, change always boils down to brute-force. At some point, a person reaches an impenetrable wall of their psyche and they are forced to hit their head against it. This usually means suppression and dissociation from symptoms. For instance, in CBT, the idea is that rational arguments is what is needed for people to change their irrational beliefs (the cause of disturbances), yet in practice, it's never as elegant as someone following and accepting a rational argument, usually requiring the person months of so-called "practice" for them to actually accept the belief (or rather, work on suppressing the symptom long enough to appear as if change happened).

The change you describe is the change on the level of behavior. Certain approaches focus entirely on that, but as you've noticed, it's very shallow change. One could train oneself to act contrary to one's emotions and instincts, suppressing and dissociating from them and working on producing the "correct" behavior. Yet this shallow change is never permanent because it requires constant effort and maintenance, continually fighting against oneself, as such it's usually not sustainable in the long run.

Genuine psychological change, what some would call "transformational change" is very different. The markers of such change are symptom cessation, non-reactivation and effortless permanence. Meaning: symptoms disappear, can no longer be re-activated by usual triggers and the change persists without effort. Such markers indicate a change on a deeper level i.e. a klepto no lPost too long.

>There's actually a decent amount of empirical evidence that shows that therapy is random or placebo
do you have any sources?


Here's a collection of studies on it and their implications.

This year most of my plants (zucchinis, strawberries, cucumbers) got messed up with the heat waves, tomatoes are really the only thing I have left. I don't want summer to end, going back to eating store vegetables and fruit is soul crushing. Not much money so no fancy organic food.

Do you garden? How long? What plants?
How do you deal with having to go back to tasteless store vegetables during winter?

I just grew my first potatoes, I only got about 20 but it was fun and I will be doing it again. I also have some tomatoes, strawberries and lettuce growing.


wtf, how did I miss this thread, I'll post some stuff im growing tomorrow, its nothing professional, kinda small produce, but it still makes me happy

some stuff


can you provide some info on pineapple growing? i could google but id much rather learn from another wizard. nice plants


well I got about 4 of em, I live in florida and they just grow by themselves I guess, usually get one pop up about once a year, they take forever but they're not too much of a hassle, they grow here all year round. The other plants I got take much more care or else they just die from bugs/disease/heat. You can basically just buy a pineapple from the store, stick it in the dirt anywhere you got free space, and eventually it'll grow another pineapple lol

I liked the first math thread, but that hit the bump limit so I'm making another one.

Here is a neat tool posted in the previous thread that shows you how to do geometry the way the greeks did.


Here are a series of MIT OCW courses that will help you learn calculus:



Full MIT OCW Mathematics catalog:


Attached is the a Numberphile video about the seven bridges of Königsberg because I dunno what else to attach to this OP.

(I just remember when I was first starting this and got shat on to high heaven and I pretty much just quit the field entirely, so I wanted to add some positive points)


Oh I do not mean to discourage anyone. But i myself found myself wanting someone to critique my proofs lest I miss anything important.


This isn't a proof as it does nothing to demonstrate that all even integers are equal to 2k where k is some integer, and the same for odd integers and 2k-1


This is 500 pages of chemical kinetics theory, examples, and data. I want to do my capstone on something similar, so I will dig through this to understand the basic theory, and retrace the author's steps in terms of math/computer stuff


It's a bit like me. I was also trying to study maths for a while. I didn't put enough effort and I had to quit.
