any wizards into chess too?
it's quite interesting with its unlimited options. a way to escape the bitter reality, as well.
what's your elo rating?
your favorite openings with white and black pieces?
how much time do you dedicate for chess usually?


>>48468 (OP)
There's already a chess thread here.

I haven't played much chess for quite a while. As for opening, I'm mostly comfortable with the Sicilian, and Queen's gambit. I used to do 1.b3 Nimzowitsch Attack and 1.g3 Hungarian Opening, when I was practicing hypermodern and fianchetto, but never been very successful with this style. I also quite like Alekhine Defense and the theory behind, but not very good with it either.

Guess I should study more.


I like written words because they rarely attack me physically nor can they hurt me mentally when I close my eyes.

I also like to invent words, sometimes coming up with complex (false) etymologies for words in foreign languages. Do you invent words in your own or in a foreign language?

Today I came up accidentally with this:

gord, noun, a lord and a god. An acronym used in illegal Old English translations of the Bible, produced in clandestine scribal workshops, which often presented themselves to be legitimate catholic scribal workshops and even offered legitimate manuscripts for Latin and Greek versions of the Bible. First attested in the now lost Anglo-Saxon - Greek dictionary, published in manuscript form 1138 by an unnamed monk in Glouchester Abbey: The dictionary recommends that "ὁ κύριος ὁ θεός" is translated simply as "the gord".


I like translating words back and forth from english to french. Buckler -> Bouclard, To trick -> Triquer etc.


The actual words would be Bouclier and Truquer but I enjoy distorting them this way

We've had this discussion before and it's time to have it again.

Have one? Have MANY? Want one? DON'T want one? Tell us of your two-wheeled troubles and tales and share any knowledge you have with other curious wizards.

Three wheels. Does anyone not consider it a motorcycle, now that this has three wheels?

I wonder if the wheels were in the back (unrealistically in regards to anything else), it wouldn't need a kick stand?

Never really rode a motorcycle or know about cars. Just posting my questions since they came up. Life is literally suffering. God damn the demiurge for making my mind like this.


>Does anyone not consider it a motorcycle, now that this has three wheels?
That got me thinking. All cars are by definition motorcycles (Motorquadricycles) but for some reason the word 'motorcycle' is only associated with 2 wheels (motorbicycle). It's weird how words get a meaning or association outside of their literal definitions and everyone just accepts it.


Electric motorcycles… anyone interested?

Some of these touring bikes seem nice. If it wasnt so rainy I'd look into it.


Funny, those BMWs are the only bikes I see on the road in the rain. I believe they have advanced traction control that permits them to be used in wet stop/go traffic. On the flipside though they are particularly pricey

A comfy wizard place.


very nice use of lines to illustrate texture! i especially love the tomato plant by the fence. did you use a reference?

please don't.


Thanks appreciate that. I go through the rendering in pen and ink book by guptill and use the examples there as sort of "base" to start from. That book has crazy good visual examples and I try to copy them first and then create my own.

Hello Wizzies, what podcasts do you recommend? i enjoy going trekking while listening to some relaxing podcasts to distract me.
I am currently listening to this one about the history of Japan and it's role in WW2

One of the best around, its a shame only have a few episodes and its not really active.
You can check his channel too if you like linux.


Forgot to post the link with the full list of episodes, he also put in his website for mp3 download.



Been listening to occult confessions.
It is pretty entertaining if you can get past when their libtard personal opinion slip out.
Covers topics and history related to the occult in a way that is super casual friendly.


>Olivia has always been a long time lover and student of religion, the taboo, and the occult. She is a practicing Wiccan and Satanist with a love of anything horror, serial killers, Aleister Crowley, and cults in America.

what is it with "paranormal" and occult podcasts and weirdos like these


History - Dan Carlin, History on fire, Martyr Made, History of Japan

Language - Manga Sensei, Learn Japanese Pod

Other/Interesting - The Tim Ferris Show, Sam Herris, Myths and Legends

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

Anyone read of played Shadow of the Demon Lord? I've been reading a lot of positive things about it, just wondering if any wiz is familiar with it.



Hey wiz, just wanted to say I finally had the time and the mood to stop, sit down and read Tenebrarum from beginning to end. Great book, nice stories, a good GM and players could have a wonderful time with the stories and places from this book.

Hope everything is well with you. Cheers.


Thanks for caring about me. I was thinking about aquelarre and you yesterday. I stopped posting because the guy from the other cyber closed the place. The one where i writing this is not as good as the other one, but it could be worse. I stopped reading rpgs because i spend most of my time reading fantasy, science fiction books

Hand drawn frame by frame animation. Is there anything better for that than Macromedia Flash?

Really only 18 hours for a minute? Better conversion rate than I've got with songwriting. Almost interested.


That is not factoring pre and post production.


>Damn I loved newgrounds when i was a young apprentice. I even installed macromedia flash and learned to use it a little, along with photoshop
Me too, remained at "a little" status but I still wish I could learn how to animate. I now have Adobe Creative 6 installed (which includes Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator and others), even though I know there are cracks for that CC crap I don't find it too appealing.

Arcsystem Works video games used 3D models but keeps a 2d feel.


thing thing series too


Since a buch of crack heads (or the national guard) stole the internet wires of my street, the only thing i do is read. Im reading the postman of david brin. Is not bad, is actually good. But some part of the "dar age feminins" is just cringeful

He gets a fair amount of plot conveniences.


You call losing a hand and almost getting himself and everyone he cares about killed no consequences?
And the rest of the things you mentioned aren't even plot conveniences.
Lastly you don't know what even is a Gary Stu.

Again opinion disregarded.


Maybe the only way to make a really good dune movie is an animation

I have no pride and I want money, but I want to hide it as "gifts" so that my bux are not decreased. Is camwhoring the solution? I've heard this is what welfare succubi do for supplemental income. Like with any job, we will have to work harder to make money from it (smaller market of thirsty elderfags to compete for) but it should still be possible, right?

Masks seem like a necessity, to avoid being targeted IRL for whatever you do on cam, so I was thinking something like pic attached.

I guess the thing is: is the money you can make lucrative enough, or is it just a waste of time? Are most unattractive men who are into doing this exhibitionists so they'd do it for free anyway and barely making anything and only succubi actually make enough to have incentive to do it when they would rather not?

My idea was, because summer is hot and I've in the past typed on the comp anyway shirtless, if I didn't do shit except aim it at me while I watched anime or something, would some rich fag recluse give me an extra hundred bucks a month to watch me doing nothing at all because he can see nipples?

I don't want to do anything sexual, I figure they might fund you with the hopes that will happen and then stop funding you if you don't accelerate, but that's fine with me, I'll still make some money for doing essentially nothing except wearing a mask which doesn't seem like it's that hard.

I guess my main prob is I wear glasses which can be awkward with a mask. Any tips on how to easily hide face while still wearing glasses? Not wanting to switch to contact.s

Where do you even get started though? There doesn't seem to be any how-to for this type of shit. I'm sure there are for succubi (because pathetic normies are so thirsty for them, they'll pay to watch some 500lb landwhale eat a sandwich or stomp on an orange) but I feel like I'd have to plumb the depths of the darkweb to find a market for unattractive obese guys in their 30s who don't want to do anything except sit around shirtless watching anime or posting on chans. I expect most geriatric fags want to watch guys fap or something, so the ones who just want to see "slice of lice" wizards in masks would be pretty small and hard to isolate.

>Nobody will care who you are until you take off the mask. "No face no fap" is what people say.
I wouldn't know, I don't populate camwhore sites, it doesn't appeal to me. Are you sure that's not just something they say to the female camwhores you're paying?

>The only way you'd need a mask is if you posted your vids here.

Respectfully disagree, tech is increasing for facial recognition, I don't want some shit where someone somehow matches me up with some Closed-Circuit Camera Television from my semi-annual grocery trips (not yet full hikki) and manages to find out what city I'm in and track me down further from there. There's always an odd chance random people in your life are closet fags and will recognize you, I don't want to take that chance.

>How much of a presence online do you have attached to your real information that there would be a risk of getting yourself doxxed?

I've de-emphasized it the last decade or so, but prior to that I was a bit of a shit-stirrer and actually got doxed and people calling my home, so I don't want to poke the bear. Even though it would be hard to recognize me from aging 14+ years since being a teen, you never know how high-tech that software (or people's eyes) will get, so mask seems like the safest bet.

>as long as you're respectable to your viewers and don't act like a goof, people won't have a reason to pursue your real ID.

In my experience, people can still come to hate you even if you are polite to them. Goofiness is sPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


no one watches guys cam unless they're hot, speaking from experience fapping to gay cam shows occasionally. so throw that idea out unless you're fit and handsome, no one is going to waste their time with you


>speaking from experience fapping to gay cam shows occasionally
very wizardly


>the ones who just want to see "slice of lice" wizards in masks would be pretty small and hard to isolate.

I think that's a saturated market, OP. Every other comic book reviewer or retro gaming guy inhabiting the bottom of YouTube have a second channel where all he does is sit around watching anime or browsing his phone and I don't see they making any money with it. I have seen a guy getting free games and someone sent him a new pillow case but that's about it.


No one is going to pay money to watch a old fat guy sit around and do nothing.

Even cam whores and e-thots actually put in effort to put on a show and gather attention to make money.

Lets go on a Wizardly tour of the world, using Google Street View. It is truly amazing. Sure there were always National Geographic pictures and stuff. But its not the same as being able to walk around streets at your own direction. This is like something out of science fiction, we take for granted. This is as good as actually being there. And perfect for Wizards who don't actually want the inconvenience of leaving their homes.

You can also post pics and youtube vids from foreign countries too.

You can visit all of the countries here:

That path by the school really made me feel. I wish I was a kid again, starting over, walking that way.



there are some jobs to do as well as a good uni


>You can also post pics and youtube vids from foreign countries too.
I enjoy watching cab view train videos quite a bit. There are a lot of great videos to be found on YouTube, with some of the best being from Norway and the Netherlands. Being a train driver sounds highly wizardly to me (at least in theory!).

I'm also quite enjoying those city walk videos (Rambalac, NIPPON WANDERING TV) that can be found over on /jp/.
