2023.04.01 06:04 Lothli M&L April Fool's Special: A Cacophony of Mixed Nuts

Lothli woke up bright and early this Saturday, as always. Then, with a yawn, she checked her phone: April 1st.
Was there something important happening today? I don’t quite remember…
Her thoughts were quickly swept away by the mundanity of her morning routine. Pulling on clothes, brushing her teeth, doing her hair…
And so, she was entirely caught off guard when she arrived in the kitchen.
Her twin sister cackled like a madwoman, stirring a gigantic cauldron smelling burnt iron, cotton candy, and writer’s tears.
“Maishul, what exactly have you done?” Lothli sighed, ambling over to the bubbling cauldron.
“This? Oh, just a little April Fool’s prank!” the other twin giggled before pulling out a miniature figurine of a strange humanoid insect. With a snap of her fingers, the statuette grew to full size, glancing around warily.
“Oh goodness! What’s going on here?” the moth woman exclaimed, seeming more confused than frightened. “What kind of insect are you? I’ve never seen anyone with just four limbs like you two!”
Lothli turned to Maishul, a frown on her face. “Is this Minerva? Did you STEAL her? We’re going to get banned, you know.”
The other twin continued cackling, heedless of Lothli’s wrath. “No, no, I got permission! Look!”
Indeed, the paper Maishul pulled out did have the signatures of one, two… how many authors?!
“Maishul, what the heck have you done?” Lothli huffed. “This is— how do we—”
“Excuse me, but I believe I may be lost?” Minerva asked, her wings fluttering nervously. “While I would love to ask the two of you some questions, I need to return to my lab, if you could point me in the right direction?”
“Oh, I apologize, Dr. Minerva. You’re currently experiencing a dream. Please do forget about this,” Lothli sighed before snapping her fingers and reverting the insectoid woman to her figurine form.
“How exactly are we going to explain this to Polaris?” Lothli deadpanned with her gaze on her happy-go-lucky sibling.
“Oh, I have a good ‘ol industrial barrel of Remove-Yo-Memory. I’m sure it’ll turn out fine!” Maishul grinned back. “Look, look! Let me show you what wonderful scenes I’ve cooked up for everyone!”
Scene One: Art’s Very Bad, No Good Day I was not having a good day. First, I was thrown into yet another random plane of existence. Dimension hopping was something I wanted to experience no more than one time in my life; thank you very much. And yet, here I was. In yet another random plane of existence with absolutely no say.
Second all, I found myself surrounded by these strange creatures. Four legs, shimmering black pelt, bizarre snake-like neck, flat head, creepy singular eye, and that weirdly human voice. Definitely not a fan.
The three Iklems crept—
Ahem. The plural of Iklem is Iklemli, Art.
And thirdly, that obnoxious voice ringing out in my head. Who was that? Why were they in my head? And why could they read my thoughts?
Fine. The three Iklemli crept closer and closer, predatory intent clear. I backed away slowly before my phone suddenly burst out with the cheery tune of Weird Al singing, “Just eat it (eat it), eat it (eat it)...”
“I’m in the mother of all situations here, Demoness, and you choose a freaking parody song? Can you at least tell me what the hell is happening here?” I snarled into my phone’s mic, watching the approaching monsters closely.
“M’dear, I hate to say it, but I have no clue what’s happening.” The slight strain in the Demoness’s usually sultry voice gave me pause. That Demoness? Confused? I really was in some deep shit, wasn’t I?
“Could you at least tell me what an Iklem is?” I said, imitating those creatures as best I could.
“My love, how do I explain this? As best as I could tell, at least five foreign dimensions have been forced together into one singular mess. And whoever did it had no grace or finesse at all.”
Tell the Demoness that she has no grace or finesse, either! Hmph!
Rolling my eyes, I communicated the feelings of my new head neighbor to the Demoness.
“Well, dear, tell your new friend that they should consider undoing this fiasco,” the Demoness replied with a sigh. “Whatever the case is, those Iklemli you mentioned are from one of those other dimensions. I can’t tell you a thing about them.”
With that good news, I turned back to the advancing beasts. This was going to be a fun one…
“Maishul, you can’t just break the fourth wall and shove your thoughts into the scene,” Lothli huffed, shaking her head.
“Pfffft!” Maishul blew a raspberry before turning back to her abomination of a cauldron.
“Also, you can’t just swap to first-person narration. We’re in third-person narration.”
“Well, Matt writes in first-person. And I respect our fellow author’s intent; thank you very much!”
Lothli raised an eyebrow in response before pointing to the bubbling cauldron of doom. “You call THAT respecting our fellow authors’ intents?”
“They gave permission!” Maishul pouted before turning back to her inglorious creation. “And you won’t complain once you see my next glorious scene!”
Scene Two: Sloth Squared Pride’s scowl only grew deeper as he dragged his erstwhile companion along. The swampland around them had warped into a blooming forest, with trees looming large overhead. The various fully intact buildings were most concerning, indicating that the pair had passed into a rift.
“Sloth, GET UP!” he hissed, shaking the lazy layabout.
“Huh? Wuzzit? I’m sleepin…” Sloth snored, already back asleep.
“We’ve got a MAJOR problem here. Pretty sure a rift opened around us, so stay on guard!”
Sloth blearily stumbled to his feet before glancing wide-eyed at his surroundings.
“Holy cow, you’re right! I didn’t even notice. But, man, Pride, I’m so tired… I…” Sloth stumbled a bit further before faceplanting directly into a bed of flowers.
“Dammit, Sloth. This is ridiculous, even for your standards.” Pride leaned down to pick Sloth back up, but something strange was afoot. As soon as he leaned down, an overwhelming surge of exhaustion passed through him as well, and he collapsed on top of his companion.
“Dude, you’re sleeping right on top of a good patch. Can you two move?” A voice lazily drifted into Pride’s mind before he rocketed up ramrod straight.
“Hwa— what!? Oh. A rifter.” Pride composed himself as he stared down at the man who awoke him. About five foot six, with short white hair and red eyes.
“Uh, I’m not a rifter or whatever you just called me. I’m Clear, prince of Sloth. And you?” Clear tilted his head.
“Prince… of me? Ehehe, there’s no prince of me…” Sloth murmured in his sleep.
“Typical rifter, spewing nonsense. Come on, you lazy bum. We’re gonna hide before this gets violent.” Pride turned to drag Sloth away but found his legs unwilling to move.
“Hey, man. C’mon now. You haven’t noticed you’re in a dream yet?” Clear said, his hand extended. “Let’s just talk, alright?”
Pride struggled for a few more moments, then back at Clear. “Alright, alright, never seen a rifter do that before. Calm down, yeah? I’ll chat until this rift collapses.”
“So please, introduce yourself properly this time,” Clear responded, freeing Pride with a flick of his hand.
“Right. I’m Pride, that’s Sloth.” Pride pointed at himself, then at his companion. “Can we go?” “No. Please explain what you are doing here and those wings on your back.” Clear yawned. “Also, don’t use our nation’s name as a moniker. It’s probably disrespectful… or something. Eh, we don’t actually care that much.”
“Huh? We’re here because your stupid rift pulled us in,” Pride hissed. “And these wings? We were born with ’em. No story here. Also, pretty sure we were the ones who had those names first.”
“Eh, the kingdom of Pride wouldn’t be very happy to hear about that,” Clear responded. “But whatever, man. Things have been rather chill ever since a random blob named Sparky fell on top of the Demon King and ate him or whatever. So enjoy the nap, I guess. Mind if I join in?”
Pride rolled his eyes before scooting over to allow Clear access to the flowers. Before long, Sloth and Clear were snuggled up together, much to the chagrin of Pride.
“What the hell am I supposed to do now?”
“Aren’t they just the cutest?!” Maishul exclaimed. “We should make that our newest OTP. I bet Haru would approve.”
“Please don’t ship characters across two different SerSuns,” Lothli replied with a shake of her head. “Also what was that about Sparky eating the Demon King—”
Scene Three: Machines, Demons, and The World Tree
There was a rather strange rash of oddly dressed folk in Lugavya lately. Or rather, just odd folk in general.
Rumors flew of a human with bird wings who passed over the town, carried through hurried whispers between the residents. A strange man with fierce red eyes insisting on making ‘deals,’ much to the annoyance of passersby trying to get through their day.
Lena and Veska had met to investigate, unable to keep themselves still while such strange events abounded. No sooner had the two exchanged greetings did two strange men approach, flagrantly discarding any sensibilities on their right to free speech.
“Hello!” the younger one called out before getting his head gently bonked by the older.
“W-what was it? Oh! The greeting we use should have been ‘well met,’ right?” the teenage boy puzzled himself, rubbing his head.
“No. Firstly, as foreign visitors, we do not use that greeting. Secondly, we do not greet them. They greet us,” the older whispered, turning his eyes to Lena and Veska. It seemed at least one of them remembered their manners.
“Peace, strangers. We will not begrudge you for your transgressions. Tell me, what business have you with us?” Lena began.
“We are looking for directions. We have lost our way. Please, would you tell us our current location? Latitude and longitude are preferred, but any notable landmarks will do.” The older man bowed slightly, with the younger following shortly after.
Latitude? Longitude? These words were unfamiliar to Lena and Veska.
“This is Lugavya. Home to Alvedos, the World Tree?” Veska explained, an eyebrow raised. Were these folks raised under a rock or something?
The two men conversed among themselves, their frowns deepening.
“Apologies, but I am unaware of Lugavya. Could you perhaps point us in the direction of the United States?” the older asked, tilting his head slightly.
“Oh, and if you know of any demons, could you put in a word for me? I can’t figure out the ritual to get home without one of them…” the younger added.
The United States? Demons? More unfamiliar terms. Lena and Veska knew these newcomers were oddballs, but this was a bit much.
“I’m sorry—really! But we simply don’t have the knowledge to help the two of you. Perhaps you could head to the Foresters? I’ll give you their location.” Lena rattled off directions to the nearby Foresters’ hall.
“Thank you very much.” The older man stalked off after a stiff bow, and the younger man quickly followed.
“Sticks and stones, what is the world coming to?”
“Was that Megan’s SerSun? All that intricately balanced worldbuilding, and you just shoved random crap in.” Lothli barely held back a sigh. “Also, you didn’t even introduce those two characters. How are our readers supposed to know who they are?”
“This is left as an exercise to the reader,” Maishul tittered into the camera before returning to the glorious mess in her cauldron.
“Next scene!”
Scene Four: The One With No Chill
There wasn’t much that could faze a Huntress.
It was often said that their wills were unshakable. Nothing could cause them to stop them from single-mindedly accomplishing their goal. And yet, Olivia stood dead in her tracks, staring at the abomination across the Dam square.
“I AM OLIVIA. DARK HUNTRESS. SMASHER OF SQUEAKERS. AND THE ONE WITH NO CHILL,” the awful creature that vaguely resembled Olivia boomed.
“That young lass a friend of yours?” Barlow remarked, barely holding back a chuckle.
“Nope.” Olivia chucked one of her daggers at the offending sight, but she deflected the blade with a ripple of its musculature.
“You are weak. You have no strength. Witness me, false Olivia.” The muscle monster took up a ridiculous pose, her muscles overtly flexing.
“I will destroy you. And after that, I will destroy your creator. And I’ll salt your entire bloodline, while I’m at it,” Olivia snarled.
“I would like to see you try, false Olivia. Last time, I was overcome by the power of the Deus Ex Machina. But this time, I will not be struck down.” The monster took a step forward, the cobblestones cracking under her feet.
Olivia flinched. A Huntress does not feel fear. A Huntress does not back down. Yet… in the face of this horrible being… Her mind recalled the near-death experience she had with the Beast. Did she really want to face that again?
She shook her head, clearing it. No. She would finish this. Olivia raced at the mocking facsimile of herself, her onyx daggers at the ready. As she drew closer, she summoned every ounce of strength and struck.
As Olivia flew through the air, the world seemed to slow down.
Ah… this feels… familiar…
“‘Admittedly, Huntress, you are quite the entertainer—”
“No!” Lothli slapped the figurines out of Maishul’s hands, sinking them into the dreadful mire of the cauldron below. “You can’t reuse that line for the third time!”
“But you used it, Lothli. That’s hypocritical!” Maishul harrumphed.
“Yes, because it was the first time we used it. You can’t just reuse jokes like that!” Lothli glared. “And don’t think I forgot about that comment Clear made about Sparky. What. Exactly. Did you do?”
“Uhm, uhh…” Maishul stuttered. “W-Well, I maybe kinda spilled some my Story-Breaking-Plot-Devices into the cauldron on accident…”
“Your WHATS?!” Lothli stared at her twin in disbelief.
“Uhh, it wasn’t a big deal or anything. Just, uh... Scarlet, the Demon King, Sparky, Wan, Pre-Geas Dread Lord Ardus, the plague from , the Deus Ex Machina, the Beast, and the entirety of the United States’ arsenal of nuclear weaponry.”
Lothli shook her head with a sigh. “I’m pretty sure you caused mass human extinction at least three times over.”
“Well! No time to worry about it! Next scene!”
Scene Five: Bea and Ophelia Discover The Wonders of Nuclear Physics
Bea and Ophelia stared at the booklet that had just materialized before them. “Maishul’s Simple Guide to Stealing and Utilizing the Entirety of the United States’ Arsenal of Nuclear Weaponry: For Dummies!” The booklet was decorated with garish stickers of rainbows and glitter, along with cartoonish mushroom clouds.
With a glance at Ophelia, Bea picked up the book. Immediately, her mind was flooded with images and knowledge. Where exactly every nuclear silo in the United States was located. The launch codes and how to bypass the two-key rule. The birth and loving families of each and every nuclear warhead…?
“Bea? Dear? Are you alright?” Ophelia shook Bea gently, concerned. Bea wordlessly handed over the booklet and watched the same information flow through her. The two shared a meaningful glance before turning the manual over. A bright red button sat there, glowing ominously amongst the childish stickers and drawings of shocked faces.
“This is absolutely too dangerous to be left just lying around,” Bea murmured, staring at the booklet intently. Maybe it was a prank some lesser fae put together to induce some concerning but ultimately harmless illusions. But deep down, the two knew this was far more sinister than a simple prank. Plus, there was no fae named “Maishul” that either of them knew of.
“I’m going to have to seal this thing away with the strongest magic I have,” Ophelia declared. With a wave of her hand, ethereal chains weaved around the book. Magical seals whirled through the air, all concentrated on the offending manual. The horrors of nuclear annihilation have been contained with a final clap of her hands.
For around five seconds. Immediately after the ritual was complete, as if to spite Ophelia’s work, a glowing sword descended from the heavens, slicing through the glowing chains and seals like butter. The two barely managed to glimpse the name written on the side: “The Deus Ex Machina,” before the blade landed squarely on the big red button with a satisfying click!
“So what exactly were you saying about ‘not worrying about it’?” Lothli shook her head in dismay. “How are we going to explain this mess to their poor, poor writers? What are we going to say to Bay?”
“It’ll be fine! I’m not breaking any of the rules on shortstories, which means I totally can’t be banned!” Maishul quipped cheerily.
“That is 100% not how it works.” Lothli crossed her arms. “Don’t drag me down with you.”
“I dunno! You’ll bail me out, right?” Maishul shrugged before returning to her appalling project. “Next scene!”
Scene Six: Sanguia Loses a Fight
These were the end times. The world felt… sideways. The government was in shambles. A plague that turned people into fine, yellow dust had apparently appeared, sweeping the continent from east to west. Yet, there was nothing I could do. Right in front of me, I had my own foes to contend with on the roof of Holos Lucidium.
On my right was a shapeless mass, writhing and transforming, throwing vicious barbs my way. It never introduced itself, but I knew its name from within myself: the Beast.
On my left was a much more innocent figure, at least on the surface. He had slicked-back black hair, brown eyes simmering with self-assured pride, and an easy smirk. And to cap it off, he introduced himself promptly and with great gusto; he was Dread Lord Ardus.
I could attempt to flee, but what purpose would that serve? Even if I got away, which my gut told me was highly unlikely, I would be abandoning my guild to die to these two monsters. So no. I stood my ground here.
“Sanguia. Member of Holos Lucidium.” I balanced my stance between my two flanks, watching both. With a smirk from Ardus and a ripple from the Beast, the fight began.
I quickly discarded the idea of even fighting the rippling mass on my right. It had no blood I could control, and impacting it with my blade would make me stuck. But the Dread Lord was no slouch, either.
As I rushed at Ardus, a tingle in my spine screamed at me to duck. I tucked into a combat roll as a great blast of flame roared right where I used to be.
“Fiesty, aren’t you? Well, that’s what makes it fun,” the Dread Lord growled, licking his lips.
I had no time to respond as a raging, shimmering bull attempted to ram its gleaming horns directly through me. I sprung off the ground, landing just behind the writhing bull. There was no time to go on the offensive; it took all I could to stay alive.
“Stop struggling, Interloper,” the Beast snarled. “I have plans I have to attend to. Plans that do not involve you.”
I kept the undulating mass between myself and my second opponent. My only hope was to promote crossfire. The dagger I held in my right hand felt woefully inadequate for this task.
“You heard the fella. I’ll end this, here and now.” Ardus thrust his hand straight up into the air as if grasping something far above him.
“Dread Lord. May I take this as a sign of betrayal?” The Beast rumbled, a dangerous edge to its voice.
“Nah, I never said I was working with you. You’re too… icky for my tastes.” The Dread Lord tapped his chin thoughtfully. “It’s a good thing you’ll be obliterated in an instant. Ta ta!”
I looked up with a heavy heart, knowing how outclassed I was. There was barely time to say goodbye before a massive ball of light enveloped me in its all-consuming shine. The last thing I managed to think was:
That was an utterly unfair fight.
“Well, the protagonist of our SerSun just died. What now?” Lothli looked at the cauldron in dismay.
“Hey, it’s not so bad! Scarlet is still alive, right?” Maishul dug around in the cauldron before pulling out yet another distended scene. “Look! Here she is!”
“What… is that?” Lothli looked at the scene with equal parts awe and disgust.
“Oh! Well, I really liked Fye’s SerSun, so I made my own! Isn’t it great?”
“Maishul, I think you missed the entire point of his SerSun. Where’s the inter-character drama? Where’s the mystery? Where’s the actual HISTORY?” Lothli poked the off-kilter scene with distaste. “This version of the story is just <Murder.>.”
“Well too bad, dear ‘ol sis! Here! We! Go!”
Scene Seven: Murder Without the History
Hi, I’m Benedict Lushon, Ben for short. Somehow, I think I just unlocked the secret to teleportation. I stand in the middle of the mansion’s dining room, feeling my stomach turn violently. One moment, I was chained in front of a cackling Kyle, and the next thing I know, we’re back in this blasted room. I crane my head, checking who else is here.
Teddy, check. His monocle and top hat are still crooked as he looks around the room, just as confused as I.
Cornell, check. Unfortunately, he still seems to be out cold.
Kyle, check. Wait—
I stride up to Kyle and grab onto his lapels. “What exactly have you done?” I say, shaking him back and forth.
Unfortunately, he seems even more confused by the current events than I am, judging by the bulging eyes and frothing at the mouth.
“W-What exactly happened here!? We were just— and then—” my former coworker manages to sputter out before a booming feminine voice rings out from the walls.
“Heya! What’s up, characters! It’s me, ya girl Maishul, back at it again with another fun murdery twist!” The cheery voice that booms out from the walls contrasts with all the horrors we’ve seen thus far. Also, who talks like this? Did we get kidnapped by one of those Instagram influencers? Ugh, I hate those kinds of people.
“Who are you?! What have you done?!” Kyle screams, his voice cracking. “I have waited YEARS to take my revenge on these fools, and you—”
“Oh. You.” The voice seems displeased at the interruption. “Sorry, I didn’t think your Tuffy plotline was interesting, so I retconned it!”
Now, that was the mark of a bad writer. As a future multi-bestselling author, I know that one of the most sinful things a writer can do is randomly retcon the story. I’m confident this random influencer girl will never go anywhere in her writing career.
“YOU! We were known as the Tufforo family, and we—” Kyle rages before being cut off by the voice again.
“Sorry, don’t care.” A piece of duct tape manifests itself directly onto Kyle’s mouth. I would find it funny if it didn’t demonstrate how supernatural this influencer’s power seems.
“Anyways! Here’s the rules. I’m not really good at that being cryptic thing, so it’ll be easy!” the voice announces with glee. “Here’s my super special sparkly OC, do not steal, known as Scarlet, Scourge of the Americas. She’ll try and chase you down! She wins when you’re all dead. You all win when, I don’t know, she dies of old age or something. You can try to kill her; it won’t work!”
‘Super special sparkly OC, do not steal?’ So, what, did I find myself in some hellish parody of Earth? That must be it. This must all be a very terrible dream. I sincerely hope that none of my readers would ever consider making fanfiction like this of my stories.
“By jove, those rules seem downright unfair!” Teddy finally seems to have found his voice. “Please, good madam, could you let us go? We have already suffered at the hands of that accursed man—”
“Lalala, can’t hear you!” the girl’s voice sang out. “Here she comes! Give it up for… Scarlet!”
A hidden panel drops a… rather regular-looking young woman onto the floor. Why, if I were in charge, I would have ensured that my villain would have a spectacular appearance. Someone as fascinating and spellbinding as Jack the Ripper—
Scarlet dashes at Kyle and [REDACTED]
… … Technical Difficulties
“MAISHUL! What the hell was that?! Is that how you talk when I’m not around? And what the hell was that last section?” Lothli furiously slapped the tortured scene back into the accursed project bubbling menacingly below.
“Well, Scarlet’s kinda messy, so I tried to cover it up,” Maishul pouted. “Also, I was just trying to liven up the scene a bit! Kyle’s so BORING. He speaks in RIDDLES and they make my brain HURT.”
“That’s because you don’t have a single brain cell in that head of yours,” Lothli huffed. “Don’t make such sweeping changes to people’s stories!”
“Well… dear sis, could I trouble you for a favor, since I’m so head empty ‘n all?” Maishul smiled her widest, most brilliant smile.
“What.” The other twin glared back, unimpressed.
“Well, if you don’t want the two of us to get banned, can you help me separate these stories back out? Please?” With a fluttering of her eyelashes and a winsome wink, this would undoubtedly win her sister to her side—
“Deal with it yourself. I’m going to hand out apologies.” Lothli had no sympathy for her twin’s plight.
“Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!” Maishul cried. For now, she was burdened with her least favorite task; actual work.
And thus, this tale comes to a close. Nevertheless, its name will ring true throughout the land as the legendary fable known only as “In the Shadow of Machines, Scarlet, and the In Between Geas and the Beginning of the Demon Murder History: Dissonance, also How Did We Get Here?”
Thank you very much for your time. And apologies for my sister.
Lothli, signing off.

2023.04.01 06:04 el_dumass PART 3, THIRD COLONY ROUND 1: Mana Woods vs Badar

PART 3, THIRD COLONY ROUND 1: Mana Woods vs Badar
10:00 AM, 20-3-2019, Chichén Itzá, Yucatan, Mexico
Mana Woods (by u/Capenguin13)
[Appearance & Personality]
Mana is a 33 year old male, 5’6’’, and 120lbs. He has light blue hair, heterochromatic eyes with one blue and one turquoise, and tanned skin. He wears a blue Hawaiian t-shirt, turquoise swim trunks, and blue sandals. He also carries a small dark blue duffel bag full of stuffed animals.
[Physical Attributes]
High intelligence (ability to find ways to counter cursed techniques with their own), High adaptability (ability to adjust to the environment quickly and use it to their advantage)
[Cursed Attributes]
Ability to use reverse cursed techniques, Has a shikigami at their disposal.
Mana can use reversed cursed technique to heal himself and others including his shikigami. Mana can summon five different marine animal shikigami from the different stuffed animals that he keeps in his duffel bag (penguin, orca, and octopus) and the pockets of his swim trunks (box jellyfish, mantis shrimp).
[Cursed Technique & Applications]
Mana’s cursed technique is named Marine Stuffed Animals. The technique allows him to summon five marine animal shikigami that take after the stuffed animals serving as intermediaries that he has handcrafted and carries. By shouting out his name for one of the stuffed animals, the corresponding shikigami manifests from its stuffed animal. The summoned marine animal shikigami can function in the air as if it were sea water, but substances denser than water can slow them down.
The five applications of Marine Stuffed Animals consist of the five different marine animal shikigami that can be summoned. Theoretically, Mana could summon as many different marine animals as he can make and carry stuffed animals for them to be summoned with, but for the sake of this tournament he is only using five, and I describe only a single special ability that each animal can use.
  • The first animal is a box jellyfish named “Boxy” which can sting enemies with venom that can kill a human within a few minutes.
  • The second animal is a mantis shrimp named “Manty” which can punch with an acceleration over 50mph and force over 1,500 newtons and create superheated bubbles that collapse with intense shockwaves. These first two shikigami are summoned with small stuffed animals which inconspicuously fit in the pockets of Mana’s swim trunks.
  • The third animal is a penguin named “Penguin” that is primarily utilized as a swift aerial steed.
  • The fourth animal is an orca named “Killer” which can locate opponents using echolocation.
  • The fifth animal is a giant pacific octopus named “Octy” which can expel ink to blind enemies. Mana carries the stuffed animals for these last three shikigami in his duffel bag.
[Domain Expansion]
The name of Mana’s domain expansion is Fabric Crafted Aquarium, and the hand sign to activate it is making a box with his hands. Within Mana’s duffel bag, he also carries a fabric replica of a fish aquarium that he has made. Upon launching his domain expansion, Mana traps his opponent in an expanded version of this replica which submerges both himself and his opponent into the marine environment. Mana is an experienced swimmer and has trained himself to be able to hold his breath for up to ten minutes, so the environment is inherently advantageous to him. Moreover, within his domain Mana can freely manifest shikigami of any marine animal he wishes.
[Extra Information]
Mana has a background in working as a marine biologist and veterinarian and has a hobby of crafting stuffed animals. His standard fighting style consists of projecting the octopus and orca as his main weapons in order to trick enemies into entering close quarters or enclosed spaces where the box jellyfish and mantis shrimp can launch surprise attacks with their potentially one-shot kill abilities. Nevertheless, he is able to adjust his fighting style for the opponent and situation, and his high mobility thanks to the penguin steed and ability to heal himself gives him ample time to slip out of an opponent’s grasp until he can formulate an effective counter strategy.

· Saturn:
The user creates a ring of immense gravity around them. Things that enter this ring will be sent flying to the ground, including people and projectiles.
· Meteorite:
The user removes the effects of gravity from and object and throws it at the target allowing it to reach high speeds.
· Space Walk:

[Domain Expansion]
Name: Gravity of the Collapsing Universe
Visual: While the domain is open, the user can be seen in the middle of the domain sitting atop what looks like a black hole.
Description: The user has a special domain that sacrifices a barrier for an increase in range. The domain does not guarantee a hit but allows the user to change the direction of gravitational forces. For example, the user can create immense gravitational forces going sideways sending anything its hitting it that direction. This domain also requires the user to stay in the center of the domain. The domain has a maximum range of 200 meters, which the user can sit at the middle of their domain and effect the gravitational forces all the way at the edge of the domain.
[Extra Information]
The user prefers not to fight head to head in close combat. Instead using their technique, projectiles, and shikigami to defeat their opponent.

Biaheza – Dropshipping Course (COMPLETE)

About The Course:
This course outlines the systems and secrets I used to make over $300,000+ in my first year with entrepreneurship
While I was still 17 years old…
And was also a high school dropout…
So what’s your excuse? It’s time to crush it.
I want you to take a moment and imagine a world where you could…
Never worry about money ever again. Build a six figure marketing agency and the best part? it’s a reality that all of my students are living RIGHT NOW.Take care of your family & loved ones. Yeah… this is something close to my heart. My marketing agency finally allowed me to take care of my mom and the people who believed in me when I had nothing.Travel the world, anytime! Yes… that’s right. After this course you will have the location freedom to travel anywhere in the world you want!
Now, who is the genius (kidding… kinda) behind this whole course?
Let me introduce myself, my name is Iman. At the age of Seventeen, I dropped out of high school to commit to the world of online marketing. Within my first year I had made over $300,000+, I had traveled the world working from my computer, I had constructed my dream lifestyle and this was all done through the power of what I teach in Six Figure SMMA. I run my own digital marketing agency based out here in London, although we have clients out in Amsterdam and St. Tropez.
I have my personal brand which is another six figure business…
Then I have a few other smaller income streams here and there. I love the internet! Haha
Damn… I worked hard for this life. I worked hard to create the sort of income where I can take care of my family and not even check the price…
I guess that’s why I’m so passionate about what I teach. It’s because it changed my life in unexplainable ways. I don’t think I could ever go back to my old life after living like this.

Greetings Tarnished!
This is the place to ask any questions you may have about Elden Ring. This includes obscure detail questions, "newbie" advice questions, build questions, boss advice questions, and what have you.
Well written, constructive criticism is fine but please avoid ranting about aspects of the game you just don’t like. This includes “so and so boss is stupid and too difficult.”
If you are interested in the game but don’t own it yet, please don’t post “should I buy this game?” or “Is this game worth it?”. If you have played other FromSoftware games and enjoyed them, the answer is yes. If you haven’t, just do a little research! These games are difficult, and sometimes frustrating, and not everyone is going to enjoy them. And that’s okay!
Lastly, be friendly! We are all here because we are interested in the same game! Please treat your fellow players with respect.

2023.04.01 06:01 sweetdude64 Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes! Version 36.0

Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes! Version 36.0
Bloons TD 6 v36.0 - Update Patch Notes!
COMING SOON - Update 36!
Hello, and Welcome to the 36.0 Balance Changes! The latest update is right around the corner, so we wanted to hear the communities feedback!! Let us know how you feel about each of these changes in the comments, and we will be sure to take them into consideration.
Thank you for supporting us after all these years!!


BEAST HANDLER: Whereas we recently released a video and upcoming version preview to the Reddit, we feel it necessary to double back on this due to us feeling that the Beast Handler is still too complicated, so we are reworking it, again, meaning it will be delayed another 2+ updates. Sorry!
However, to ensure this does not happen again, we will be removing tower upgrades entirely from this new tower to ensure the Beast Handler is not too complicated going forwards. We hope to see you play around with this new tower in a few months!!!


  • Due to popular demand, we have removed portable lake stacking.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed games to save when pausing and returning to menu
  • Fixed exploit that allowed temporary buffs like heroes and Jungle Drum Villages to not be absorbed by Lych
  • Fixed Buff that allowed Monkey Ace and Navarch Paragons to Buff each other. Paragons will never be buffed, so we hope you enjoyed this exploit while it was in the game!
  • On a similar note, we have removed the natural overclock from the Engineer Paragon. However to keep true to the middle path, we have given it extra range, cleansing foam targeting, and +1 damage to MOAB Class Bloons


Pat was always intended to be the chunkiest monkey, and his rallying roar is still a little too strong, even after the previous nerf. So we are doubling down on our previous patch of Pat:
  • Pat Fusty footprint increased 28 -> 54
  • Rallying Roar range decreased 72 -> 58


We have noticed many complaining that certain paragons are weaker than their counterpart 3 5th tier towers because the paragons cannot be buffed while the towers can. In order to counter this, we are increasing the Paragon Level cap 100 -> 500.
However to keep gameplay balanced, the only way to achieve these 400 bonus levels on each paragon is to use Geraldo's Totems.
-We recognize totem spam will likely be annoying for many players, so we are increasing the total power each paragon totem gives from 300 -> 350.


Bloons was always intended to portray real life physics. Due to this, we are changing lead bloons to only be popped from melting.
  • We also want bloons other than ceramics and fortified to have multiple layers, so lead bloon layers have been increased from 1 -> 4, and fortified leads are increased from 5 -> 15
  • Striker Jones, Bomb, and Mortar are no longer able to damage lead bloons
  • Juggernaut and Crossbow Master no longer Pop leads
  • Of course, x5x Super Maelstrom no longer pops leads
  • Ice towers no longer pop leads at any level
  • Sniper monkeys are no longer able to Pierce lead bloons
  • Hydra Rocket Pods and MAD no longer pop leads
  • Razor Rotors no longer pops leads
  • Explosive pineapples, and the respective x3x and x4x bombs no longer Pop leads
  • Lead to gold converts lead bloons into golden leads instead of popping them, similar to rubber to gold
  • Cleansing foam no longer pops leads, but makes them resistant to explosive damage
Whereas purples are an interesting bloon that prevents the abuse of certain gameplay styles, the long gaps in between rounds in addition to purple bloons only capable of being spawned naturally like leads make it too easy to get around the weakness these bloons are supposed to provide.
  • Instead of purple bloons absorbing attacks, they will now Completely Stun All monkeys with plasma projectiles while on screen.
  • 3xx Submarines and 4xx Bloontonium Reactors now automatically submerge when purple bloons are on screen
  • Shimmer and Signal Flare are now incapable of de-camoing Purple Bloons.
  • Purple bloon life Drain increased 12 -> 35
  • All purple bloons will spawn fortified past round 50. Fortified purples HP 1 -> 6
Due to the power ceiling being increased over time from constant power buffs, ceramics are no longer a threat late game when compared to MOAB Class bloons. Especially with recent buffs to super mines and bloon solver. This goes against the intended game design, so we are hoping these changes will fix that:
  • Super Ceramic Health 60 -> 200
  • Fortified Ceramic Health 80 -> 1,000
  • MOAB Class bloons ramping reduced 1 -> .5
  • Cerams will now incrementally increase in health every round


  • Due to popular demand, Contested Territory Events have been changed from a weekly event to a daily event. This is to help separate Bloons TD 6 from the monotonous waiting of the standard Facebook game.
  • Bloonarius feels especially underpowered compared to its boss counterparts. It is meant to be the slow tank compared to other bosses. So, Bloonarius HP has been increased at all levels, and all other boss speeds have increased. Hopefully now Bloonarius will feel like a unique counterpart from the rest!
  • Bloonarius HP Tripled
  • Bloonarius remains at its current speed. All other bosses receive a 50% increase in their current speeds Vortex is widely known as the easiest boss. To counter this, we are increasing the Stun duration.
  • Vortex's Stun has been increased from 10s -> 30s
  • Fixed bug that prevented Lych soul from ramping with freeplay rounds


For a long time, we have wanted crit shots to be a bigger part of the game, as you can probably tell by the addition of crit shots on certain towers more recently. We feel ready to make a big jump by giving every tower an 8% chance to crit for 5x damage on the crit attack.
All around, towers have been feeling a bit strong, so to counteract this new CRIT Change, every tower has had its attack speed reduced. We have extensively play-tested this new change and feel confident it will breed new life to the game! In addition, to clear up any confusion, the word CRIT that pops up will now fully spell out "CRITICAL SHOT!"
  • Every tower now shoots 33% slower
  • "CRITICAL SHOT" text on screen increased 0.5s -> 2.8s
  • "CRITICAL SHOT!" Font size increased 8 -> 20
  • A large, thick black border will now be placed on the "CRITICAL SHOT!" Text for easier accessibility


Dart monkeys have always been a strong addition to the game. In fact, they are 2-3 times stronger than the dart monkeys from btd 1-5. To level out the insane power increase, we are nerfing the base dart monkey.
000 dart monkey price increase 200 -> 450
Whereas we are pleased with the direction paragons are moving in, we feel as if the Dart paragon does not accurately resemble the 3 upgrade paths as well as it should. So we are changing the Ultra Juggernauts damage type so that it may no longer pop purple bloons. We pride ourselves on community feedback, and we have heard how much fun it is to bounce Juggernaut balls off of walls. We are keeping with that influence of game design to make fans happy.
  • Juggernaut & Ultra Jug Lifespan Increased 6s -> 180s
  • Juggernaut Pierce Increase 50 -> 80
  • Ultra Jugg Pierce Increase 80 -> 420
  • Ultra Juggernauts damage type from Normal -> Plasma
The middle path has been neglected for a long time. However before we inevitably buff it, we must first nerf it:
  • Any super monkeys on the field get transformed to 000 dart monkeys when a SMFC ability is activated, including VTSGs.
  • All SMS Powers are reverted to dart monkeys which do 1 damage to bloons upon usage
To add more viability to the bottom path, we are increasing total damage.
  • CRIT shot changed from every 8 shots to every 1 shot.
  • Normal shot damage reduced 30 -> 0
In an effort to reduce late game lag, we are reducing the amount of total projectiles in-game. However, we do not want to disrupt the balance of towers, so we are evening out the damage.
  • Tack Sprayer 16 tacks -> 8, damage 1 -> 2
  • Overdrive 16 tacks -> 8, Attack speed .28 -> .72, damage 1->4
  • Tack Zone Tacks 32 -> 8, Attack Speed .18 -> .72, damage 2 -> 20
The top path has been getting a lot of love, however the bottom path feels more neglected due to the buffs of the now-superior top path. Hopefully this rework can change things up.
  • MOAB Press 204 MOAB Damage 50 -> 100
  • Left Handed Kylie Boomerangs now shoot boomerangs directly behind them instead of in front of them.
Due to the imbalanced nature of the bomb at release, we quickly needed to adjust gameplay to suit every tower. Now that the gameplay is stable, we will be reverting many of these changes. While also buffing up the rest of the tower in the process.
  • Frag bombs 002 no longer does black popping power
  • Base bomb shooter attack speed increased .72 -> .48 (All upgrades increased naturally)
  • Base cannon explosion radius increased 56 -> 78 (All upgrades increased naturally)
  • In order to reduce lag when using this tower, the bottom path has been reworked.
  • xx3 xx4 and xx5 cluster bombs, recursive cluster, and bomb Blitz cluster projectiles 8 -> 1. Instead, cluster bombs cause bloons to spread, preventing grouped bloons from overwhelming your defense. Try these against a round 63 cluster!
We were hoping to keep it a surprise, but we are revealing this early: Special Agents are being brought to the game!
In an effort to make more synergy between towers and special agents, the glue gunner is being renamed to the Honey Gunner to create crossplay between this tower and the Beekeeper.
Despite the past 8 buffs making the bloon solver one of the strongest towers in the game early on, it falls off in late game play. We feel it could be stronger, so we are buffing its viability all round.
  • 5xx bloonsolver damage tick speed increased 12-> 58
  • Bloonsolver damage to BAD bloons increased 1 -> 8
The glue gunner has always been a fun tower, ever since its hayday back during BTD 4. However, it has made the bloons too little of a threat as of recently, especially the middle path.
  • All ceramics are now immune to any yellow glue, up to and including 252 glue gunners
Super glue is fun for what it is. However, we felt it isn't sticky enough. In an effort to increase its uses in more scenarios, we are giving it more variability.
  • xx5 super glue Pierce increased 8 -> 22
  • xx5 super glue attack speed increased 0.36 -> 0.22
  • xx5 super glue slow effect increased 128 -> 256
  • Super Glue damage to BADS 1 -> 950
The sniper has always been a good contender for strongest tower in the game, and we have noticed a spike in usage recently. However, it still feels weak compared to the direction we are headed in.
  • All shots now crit
  • Sniper now ignores lines of sight
The top path feels too essential in the current late game meta. So we are changing the effect to something more reasonable.
  • 5xx Cripple MOAB No longer deals 5x more damage to MOAB class bloons. Instead, it has a chance to CRIT for a whopping 120 damage!
The middle path upgrade, bouncy bullets, never made sense from a physics perspective. To counter this, bullets are no longer bouncy, and instead are piercy.
  • Bouncy bullets renamed to Piercy bullets
  • Piercy bullets can pierce through 3 bloons, similar to churchill
  • x4x and x5x can pierce through 5 and 7 bloons respectively
Bottom path has always felt a little strong in addition to always being a strong cross path. We hope this change will make the tower more well rounded.
  • Sniper base attack speed increased .8 -> .56
  • xx1 and xx2 upgrades left unchanged.
Similar to other towers, Shell Shock Mortars will now shoot explosive turtle shells instead of Mortar rounds to emphasize the synergy between this tower and the new Special Agent Tribal Turtle.
Due to popular demand, we are adding a pursuit option to the Mortar. However to balance this, we are decreasing its accuracy.
  • 000 Mortar Pursuit Target Priority
  • 000 Mortar shot spread reduced .72 -> .12
  • 1xx Mortar shot spread returned to normal
  • We want the Biggest One to FEEL like an upgrade from its inferior stepping stone, the big one. So, it's now a global range tower.
  • Biggest One Attack Radius Increased 50 -> 400
To switch up gameplay, we are changing around top path upgrades.
  • 2xx Advanced Intel now has automatic global range. But it can no longer shoot bloons that are in range of other towers.
  • 3xx submarine now decamos bloons globally, however all bloons within its radius are automatically camoed.
  • Bloontonium reactor can no longer Pop regrow bloons
The middle path ability felt too good at cleaning up the insides, especially of BAD Bloons.
  • x4x ability damage decreased 8,000 -> 3,000
The middle crosspath is the obvious choice over the bottom crosspath in almost all scenarios. In an effort to make each crosspath unique and significant, we are changing things up!
  • Base dartling swivel speed reduced 30 -> 6
  • xx1 Faster Swivel Speed now grants lock in place targeting priority
In order to reduce projectiles late game, we are reworking the Monkey Ace to properly represent how we believe this tower should function in order to minimize lag and maximize fun. The Monkey Ace will now shoot darts out of the front of the Ace, similar to the BTD 5 Specialty Building Bonus:
  • Monkey Ace Darts reduced 8 -> 1
  • Monkey Ace Attack Speed .7 -> 3
  • Monkey Ace Damage Increased 1 -> 2
  • 2xx, 4xx, and 5xx have received similar changes by reducing darts to 1 and increasing DMG and SPA.
The Comanche Commander was beloved at the start of the game, however has long since fallen off. So, we are reverting the nerf allowing it to easily solo round 98 once again.
  • Comanche Commander damage 2 -> 8
  • Mini Comanche damage 4 -> 24
In order to balance this, we are reducing the speed the heli pilot can move.
  • Base Helipilot Speed reduced 3 -> 0.8
Like the tack shooter, the Super Monkey is being reworked to reduce projectiles late game for stability reasons:
  • Base Super Monkey Attack Speed .035 -> .35, damage 1 -> 5
  • 1xx Laser Vision now shoots 1 laser instead of 2.
  • 3xx Super Monkey Projectiles Reduced 3 -> 1
  • x3x Robo Monkey: 2 Arms reduced to 1
Due to positive fan reception of the recent Call to Arms global Buff, we felt it reasonable to apply this to temples as well:
  • 4xx and 5xx temples now Sacrifice ALL towers and Heroes on the map
We believe all towers should have their time to shine. No tower should be able to solo the game without much thought and effort.
Additionally, in an effort to reduce the over powered nature of Super monkeys, we are reducing their overall damage to encourage a more well rounded gameplay style which favors a variety of towers:
  • 4xx and 5xx Sun Temple base damage reduced 50 -> 5
  • 4xx and 5xx Sun Temple sacrifices have received a similar 10x downscale.
  • x5x Super Monkey Price Increased 90,000$ -> 300,000$
  • xx5 Super Monkey Price Increased 166,000$ -> 635,000$
We greatly enjoy one of our recent change to alchemists, however we feel like we did not go far enough with it to make it viable. Hopefully now it can be used more effectively:
  • Lead to gold damage to DDTs 8 -> 80
BMA is too strong late game, and too weak early game as it loses players money. So hopefully this will wise players up when considering placing him.
  • If a Bloon Master Alchemist potion hits a red bloon, the potion will transform the red bloon into a BAD.
Some upgrades feel a little bit too over and under powered for cross paths to be viable. Hopefully these changes will create more balanced play.
  • Caltrops no longer place when the Ninja is attacking bloons
  • Distraction chance increased 35% -> 100%
  • 5xx Grandmaster Ninja shots reduced 8 -> 1
  • 5xx Grandmaster projectile footprint increased 2 -> 38
  • 5xx Grandmaster Ninja Pierce increased 2 -> 40
  • 500 Grandmaster Ninja projectiles now Bounce off walls
Wizards are purely magic based towers. So it didn't make sense to give them upgrades that granted them purple popping power. Fortunately, the wizard has been buffed up enough that this nerf will still keep it playable without being overpowered:
  • xx5 Phoenix ability no longer pops purple bloons.
  • xx4 and xx5 Necromancer bloons no longer pops purple bloons.
Due to primary towers overshining the village in pretty much all aspects, we are reworking the top path:
  • Primary Expertise: Buffs to Primary Towers -> Buffs to other villages in radius:
  • xx4 Call to Arms and xx5 Homeland Defense: In an effort to reduce projectiles for in game performance, this towers ability has shifted its double attack speed into double range for all towers.
In an effort to minimize the effect of *certain youtubers* to make *specific jokes* about cleansing foam, we are changing the color. In addition, we are changing the later upgrades out of spite:
  • x3x cleansing foam color changed from White -> Green
  • x4x and x5x Engineer monkeys are now only able to overclock other overclock engineer monkeys.
Bloontraps have been exploited for too long to absorb 100% of bloons. We are countering this gameplay style with nerfs.
  • Placed Bloontraps will now have a 0.8s tick cool down interval of being able to absorb bloons
  • Bloontrap radius reduced 100% Engineer range -> 30%
To make gameplay more immersive, bananas no longer attract to the cursor, and must be clicked or tapped to pick up.
  • For QoL purposes as well as to give more use to this crosspath, the xx2 upgrade allows you to right click to pick up bananas in addition to the left click.
  • To avoid potential exploits, Monkey Farmer radius has been reduced 300 -> 80.
  • Monkey Farmers Monkey Money Cost 100 -> 500
Due to constant misunderstandings, we are switching the tack shooter to support class and spike factory to primary class. And again to limit projectiles, we are fixing this tower as well:
  • Spike Factory Base Pierce 10 -> 1
  • Spike Factory Base Damage 1 -> 10
  • xx2 Smart Spikes no longer shoot more spikes at the beginning of the round


  • Due to high demand, all placeable items will lose their clickable placement locations in favor of randomized placement.
  • Friendly Fire is now on by default. Any monkey hit by any projectile will instantly be sold for 0$.
  • Removed hotkeys for accessibility reasons
  • To make speedruns more competitive as well as to make Apopalypse stand out more as a game mode, Auto start next round has been removed.
  • The gameplay cycle of Bloons TD 6 is too short. In an effort to improve this, the fast forward button has been removed. In its place is now a slow-mo button.
We hope you enjoyed this round of balance changes as Bloons TD 6 moves in a more positive direction, as we return back to the game we released at launch. We are eager to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you would like us to revert next!
We have WHOPPING plans for where to take Bloons TD 6 and we hope you all will keep playing and have fun helping us get there. Let’s all plan on having a very happy rest of 2023 together as we look for more ways to involve the community in our vision and plans for where we go next, and until then please know that everyone at Ninja Kiwi wishes you the absolute best for a restful and playful April Fools Day!
ADDITIONAL CHANGES: Update 37+ has been scrapped.
Happy Popping!!

2023.04.01 06:01 Dryadversity The third color of gloam, how flower colors hint that Melina is St. Trina, and the color of St. Trina's third eye; (the colors of gloam pt. 2)

I'm going to be covering these topics out of order, with respect to their sequence in the title. Also, apologies in advance for retreading some of the ground from my previous submissions. Spoilers for the Frenzied Flame and Age of the Duskborn endings.
How flower colors support the theory that Melina is St. Trina
This is something I later added to my recent theory on gloam, but I also thought it was interesting enough to warrant its own post. In that submission, I posited that gloam is actually two colors, primarily: purple—or indigo, as I suggested and tried to explain in an appendment at the bottom—and faded or tarnished gold.
Something I noticed about these colors that they are prominently associated with, and almost equivalent to, the color schemes of Miquella and St. Trina: Miquella is associated with gold, and St. Trina with purple. Now, Miquella is actually primarily represented by unalloyed gold, which realistically does not fade or tarnish. However, Miquella's lilies are indeed described as faded, just like the dusky erdleaf flowers mentioned in that post.
The first line of the description for Miquella's lily reads: "A delicate water lily of unalloyed gold that has started to fade and wilt."
These lilies, I believe, are important visual hints as to the identity of Melina and St. Trina.
Miquella's lily (faded gold) and St. Trina's lily (purple)
Melina's faded gold eye, and purple-indigo eye
Note that Miquella's and Trina's lily are found directly adjacent to each other in the crafting materials menu, matching the positioning of Melina's eyes. However, I did change the order of the lilies in the picture shown; in the menu, Trina's lily is found on the left, and Miquella's on the right. That being said, there might be a way to resolve this minor discrepancy: Even though the flowers and eyes appear to be ordered differently, this is only true if we base our judgment on our own perspective; Melina's gloam eye is on our right, but it's really her left eye, which corresponds with Trina's lily being on the left. The same is true for Miquella's lily and Melina's golden eye.
It's also interesting to look at Miquella's lily alongside the golden sunflower, which by the way, are also placed right next to each other in the menu, in the same order shown below.
golden sunflower and St. Trina's lily
The sunflower resembles Melina's gold eye, as well as an eclipse. Plus, if you ask me, the spiraling petals of Trina's lily on the right have a slight resemblance to the crow's talons on Melina's indigo eye.
Another important piece of evidence is the description for the golden sunflower. It reads: "At the foot of the Erdtree, they retain their color, along with a powerful holy essence."
This is the same phrasing we hear from Melina when describing her origins: "The Erdtree...is close. Only a little further till the foot of the Erdtree, and the accord is fulfilled. It takes me back. I was born at the foot of the Erdtree. Where mother gave me my purpose." You may recall that Melina also maintains certain attributes at the foot of the Erdtree: namely, her ability to "govern her own movement", and also, it seems, her memory (since memories are gold, and the Erdtree is made of them).
Below you can see how gold and purple flowers are clustered together in the item menu. I checked that this is the proper order, and that there are no missing crafting materials between the flowers in this row.
a full row of purple and golden flowers
Yet another pairing that makes sense is tha of the grave violet and tarnished golden sunflower. As I've said, Melina's golden eye is faded, or tarnished. (In case it's not clear why I consider faded and tarnished gold to be close enough, here's one reason: Godfrey's eyes, which are golden, faded at the moment he became Tarnished.) The grave violet of course relates to death, which Melina threatens us with after her sealed eye opens. Additionally, Melina has links to ghostflame through the crow's foot on her eye, since crows and deathbirds are shown to be connected in the description for the Ravenmount clothing set. Finally, Melina is also linked to spirit calling, since it appears she is Torrent's former master, and we know it was from this person that Ranni received the spirit calling bell.
I should also mention, as I already have in my dedicated post on Melina and St. Trina connections, that there is a second pair of colors important to Miquella and Melina, in addition to gold and purple. These colors are black and white. In this case however, the pairing is a complementary contrast, and shows how the two characters differ from each other.
Melina is strongly linked with the color black; she wears a black robe, and her hair turns black in the Frenzied Flame ending. There's also the fact that her indigo eye resembles a black hole, which I discussed a while back in my theories on gravity's connection to the Gloam-Eyed Queen. Miquella, by contrast, is color-coded white. His infant form is mostly white (along with gold), and his cocoon is white, as are his robes in the DLC image.
I would summarize the color schemes of Melina and Miquella like this: Miquella is purple and gold + white, and Melina is purple and gold + black.
I'd like to mention one other thing for this section, and that's the general floral connection between Melina and St. Trina, regardless of the flowers' colors. St. Trina's torch depicts a flower above her head, and Melina uses a skill called Miranda's Prayer, which references the miranda flowers in name and in the style of the attack. Furthermore, there is a relief in Elphael that I believe depicts St. Trina rising out of miranda flower. (I discuss this relief extensively in my recent post on Elphael.) So even if the flowers weren't the same colors, I still think the shared association with flowers hints at Melina being St. Trina.
The third color of gloam
The user The_Deep_Dark_Abyss pointed out to me in the comment section of my aforementioned gloam post that the Age of the Duskborn ending depicts the Lands Between without a sun. They interpreted this as stemming from the eclipse, which is integral to Godwyn's story, and has a non-trivial resemblance to the mending rune of the Death Prince (particularly the drained eclipse depiction). Their idea was that the Age of the Duskborn has a darkened sky because of the eclipse.
I don't think they agreed with my linking of the Duskborn ending to gloam; but to me the connections are well-evidenced, especially in light of their observations of the shading in this ending. To me, the word 'dusk' in Duskborn clearly suggests an association or equivalence with gloam, since 'gloam' and 'dusk' are regarded as synonymous by most dictionaries and thesauruses.
The conclusion I reached is that dusk might also be represented as grey. This is the color of the sky in the Duskborn ending. I think it would make sense for grey to be another form of gloam, because sunlight is often portrayed as white, and in opposition to the black of night. And black and white of course make grey.
The Erdtree and sky in the Age of the Duskborn ending
There is a potential connection as well to the color-drained eclipse, which is white and black; even though I think the colored, tarnished-gold eclipse makes a bit more sense for an age in which Godwyn (the Golden) has some kind of authority. Maybe this is in fact the case? Is the Erdtree itself providing the gold, making the overall scene one of tarnished gold?
This makes quite a bit of sense. However, there's something that deserves special attention in this scene: the leaves. I remember learning from someone that the phrase "The fallen leaves tell a story" is actually saying that the inhabitants of the Lands Between can understand their history and the current order by examining the fallen leaves of the Erdtree, which change color along with the Erdtree itself. Something interesting is that the fallen leaves of the Erdtree seen in Leyndell before the game's ending are already black and gold. This appears to remain the case in the Dung Eater's ending.
In the Duskborn ending, we can see both colors of leaves: golden leaves in the Erdtree (shown in the picture above), and black/grey leaves on the ground, seen below. However, the latter—i.e. the "fallen leaves" are exclusively black/grey.
Grey/black fallen leaves; I think grey is the better descriptor, since you can see what black looks like in Fia's deathbed dress on the right.
If it's the fallen leaves that tell a story, these might ultimately have more significance. The developers could have just left the fallen leaves black and gold. So, while there are valid counterarguments, I think there's still a case to be made that one color of gloam is grey, in addition to gold and purple.
(Actually, since I've been equating black/grey a few times... I had the [probably wrong] idea that the tarnished part of the gold could in some cases be grey, not black. If this were true, it would mean that one color of gloam, tarnished gold, would itself be composed of another color of gloam, grey. While I can't say I'm convinced of this myself, it would match even better with Melina's golden eye, which is more greyed than blackened.)
Now, I personally believe this third form of gloam being black + white has greater significance and ties into other notable color pairings in the game, which I'll do my best to explain now.
In the same comment section on post I mentioned, M00n_Slippers made the astounding observation that the color pairing of blue and red, which make purple (gloam), is perfectly mirrored by the combination of black and gold, which as I suggested in the post, also make gloam. This is because black and blue are suggested in some places in the game to be synonymous (e.g. the blue crest heater shield), in the same way that red and gold are described by the game as different manifestations of the same substance.
Trying to fill out the framework, I suggested that white might have a relationship to red that mirrors the relationship of black to blue, which I think is evidenced by the association of white and gold in Miquella's design, as well as in the red and white of the red crest heater shield. I speculated red and white might be linked through their associations with purity, since fire purifies; this is expressed in the incantation "Flame, Cleanse Me". In similar fashion, blood is used for cleansing in religious rituals. Finally, one could make comparisons between the Golden Order in Elden Ring and the Way of White in Dark Souls. (Some might object that the Golden Order opposes white because they persecute the Albinaurics, but I would say their issue is with silver, not white itself.)
So, in my view, there are three different manifestations of the color red, and three different manifestations of blue, which together create three different colors of gloam. In each of these dyads I'll list the red-associated color first, and then the blue-associated one. 1). The first pairing is red and blue which make purple or indigo; 2). the second is gold and black which make tarnished or faded gold, and 3.) the third is white and black (again), which mix to create grey. There is a bit of asymmetry here in that silver is not used once while black is used twice, but I still think this is the most complete framework so far.
St. Trina's three eyes
If Melina is St. Trina, then we already know one of her eyes is indigo, and another is faded gold. But if there are 3 colors of gloam, and St. Trina has 3 eyes in her torch depiction, one could infer that the third eye of St. Trina is the only color not yet seen in Melina's eyes: grey.
A reasonable counterargument is the middle eye of St. Trina on the torch is likely purple, because this eye appears purple when illuminated by the torch's purple flames. This was a major hint of a connection between St. Trina and the Gloam-Eyed Queen, that I think most people, including myself, didn't notice. (Well, I did notice the commonalities of stone and purple, but not the purple eye more specifically.)
St. Trina's middle eye, self-illuminated with purple firelight
Another thing we should take into account, is that the design of St. Trina on this torch is a mythological reference to Medusa, who turned her victims to stone (petrified them) by looking them in the eyes. In Elden Ring, purple is color-coded with the theme of fear; and since St. Trina only has one exposed eye on the torch, it would make more sense, functionally, if the middle eye was in fact purple; because she could use it (through purple's fearful attributes) to drive fear into her enemies.
So, I understand there's an argument to be made it's the middle eye that's supposed to be purple. On the other hand: it's been pointed out that the right eye on the torch (the figure's left eye) has a black marking under it, which highly resembles the crow's foot on Melina's eye. And we know that it's the crow's foot eye that's indigo. If this scarred eye is purple or indigo, and the other concealed eye is gold, then I think the third eye in the middle might be grey—which would make some intuitive sense, since the eye is in fact grey, due to the torch being made of stone.
St. Trina's torch depiction and middle eye, without the purple flames
Since the only visible eye seen on the torch is grey, I think this lends some credence—with considerable counterevidence, I'm aware—that the third eye of St. Trina is grey, and the third color of gloam.
Since this submission is something like a modification of my previous theory on gloam, I wanted to share another idea that I have also since appended to that post.
The idea I added was based on that same comment by The_Deep_Dark_Abyss, and a theory by miirshroom on a different post. The_Deep_Dark_Abyss mentioned there might be some link between the Japanese characters translated as gloam and the time between dusk and midnight, which reminded me that even the English word gloam is sometimes defined in this way. I related this to miishroom's theory, which is that gloam could be more like the spectrum of colors associated with dusk. My conclusion was that if gloam is technically or sometimes defined as between dusk and midnight, and gloam can have various levels of red and blue as miirshroom suggested, then it makes sense for Melina's eye to be more indigo than purple, because the Elden Ring clock represents night as blue, and dusk as purple. The time in between would be indigo.
I wrote more about this idea on that original post, if you'd like to read more about what I think this choice of color communicates. There you can also find some of the comments that influenced the developments in my perspective on this topic: https://www.reddit.com/Eldenring/comments/124fbnf/gloam_is_definitely_purple_but_it_might_be/
-This is an updated post on all the reasons I think Melina is St. Trina. I've added a lot to this since first posting it (at least 6 points); I'm now up to 20 points of evidence. The post is titled "Some contributions to the Melina is St. Trina is Miquella (and potentially the GEQ) theory".
-The Elphael post containing analysis of the woman and flower relief is titled: "Elphael: Theories and observations on various topics, and more evidence that Melina is St. Trina".

Basically the title. I'm new to elden Ring; I just bought it a few days ago because I love souls games but have never played an actual From Software game before. I am also terrible at making builds, and i always have to look up how to do it. After doing a little research i have decided i want to run a samurai bleed dex build but have no idea how to do it. I trust Reddit more than Google and YouTube because Redditors, in my experience, have deeper knowledge on niche topics and how games work than most YouTubers and certainly more than Google search results. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

2023.04.01 05:59 TommyChappell May need permanent Suspense of AI/Future Technologies (Year 2023 Onwardsss)

I don't have all knowledge about AI but I am perceptive to Ideas/solutions/ways of thinking.
Elon Music Made Petition to Halt AI for 6 months. however read up and some other source did not sign up to petition because felt did not stretch falong enough. Im one of those people who agree. while suspendining AI temporarily is good thing, we need more of that thing/more in general. Not just that which I know to be key issue (I also see beyond horizon), Not only should petition last longer (like say permanent, AGI and stuff), The Petition Should extend to cover ALL technologies (2023 Onwards). Everyone is talking about AI, however problems persists beyond AI to All technologies/future technologies onwards from this point. the issue is.. we've just become too technologically advanced. while i would support tech proceeding onwards if its safe. Issue is we just don't know enough about tech to warrant if its safe. even fact people have supported tech 'blindly' is a key souvenir of what people are like in general (Silicon Valley, where others vehemently disagreed with staff working there, who blindly kept supporting tech). I would see 2 things, well 3 things really but yeah.. They don't even know how AI works (no-one does, not even creators. so how can they be blindly supportive of tech? simple answer they can't, not fully).
  1. Permanent Suspension of Future Technology (AI included), until fully validated to be safe), made law (Contracted), Strict Punishment for anyone deemed to product technology that's deemed unsafe/uncontracted/unpermitted.
  2. All Technologies are considered in wider picture, not just AI. while AI seems like obvious go-to. by no means not only tech out there capable of future threat/risk. we also have newer neuro technologies (based on neurones in brain), Quantum Computing, Machine Learning, Deep learning, even say supercomputers are controversial to a degree (even if pale in comparison to rest). Goes back to point 1.
If regulators/people think its ok to allow development of tech (only if its been fully permitted/checked thoroughly, then it may proceed to next stage of 'Safe-development', however all tech processes should be stop/start from now on. and can only proceed to next level of 'Tech' Development (when fully approved and assessed/understood, 100%). but reinforce consequences of getting it wrong. The key word is safe-technology or Safe-Approved Technology. which means its been approved for safety/regulated/checked for next stage of tech tree (until reach next safety bottleneck, which case require another check to tier 3/tier 4/tier 5 (whatever stage of evolution). all changes are only changes approved by government, and so cannot/must not go beyond that point. In fact worth having a -1 'stage of evolution' as safety net in case things are developed further than was intended to be. Again I think should be made global law (at price of extinction, as the cost/price). which is very massive price given we have nearly 10 billion people living on planet. anyone deemed to be tampering with technology not fully understood. face consequences/Severe consequences at that. and I say we leave -1 or -2 stage of evolution (from point of singularity), which is when tech is irreversible (worst thing). from being detriment. we need industry thoroughly regulated/checked. I wouldn't mind if a Sub-Super intelligent Ai was used (AI that was not-Singularity AI). to check all processes/things (report back). or advanced safe-technology. (highest performance tech, while being still in 'safe-zone'. from potential experts in field and so on.

2023.04.01 05:58 Suitable-Exit6790 Treading water, barely

This term has been hard. My 6M son is ADHD/ASD and really freaking smart. So he's been screaming every day in class and just generally unmanageable for school and I've been doing everything I can to help and solve it and basically I figured out this week with some additional details that he understands the school system and is using it to get out of shit he doesn't wanna do and yes the ASD/ADHD is a factor but it is far more behavioural. So I am probably going to have to postpone going back to work doing my dream job for the first time ever so I can pick him up from school early every day as we get him to start practicing behaviour regulation. My husband bkames me cos of how I parented when he was little. I don't want to show my face at school cos I'm ashamed and feel like all the staff and parent's are talking about me and what a problem I am. Especially the staff, cos I've talked to them way too much, like i knew i needed to stop but thats my freaking kid. I am barely coping. I have been pushing and fighting and now i feel like i broke

2023.04.01 05:57 Samax555 Olanzapine experience?

I am a long time reader and a first time poster here. i have learned so much and felt such support from all of you. Know that your contributions have had had a great impact on my jouthey. Thank you all!
My mom moved from assisted living into memory care 3 months ago. She is 92 years old and is in stage 6 Alzheimers and has been declining steadily for the last 6 months. She knows my brother and me and a few other people, can’t find thoughts and words, and makes little sense when talking (although I know she really is trying to communicate something). Her facility is about as good as it gets - light and airy, places to walk outside, lots of activities, and good staffing. We feel fortunate to have her there.
At first her transition to memory care went better than expected, but in the last 6 weeks or so she will not let the staff help with toileting, has told people in the dining room to get out of “her” chair, been snarky to other residents, and told one staff member that she could stab her with her (plastic) knife if she wanted to. She is roaming at night. So much for a smooth transition!
She is currently on a low dose of Prozac. The team wants to put her on Olanapine in addition to the Prozac. The black box label scares the crap out of me. Does anyone have any experience with this drug? Did it work? Any side effects? Any alternative ideas? We are in a state where pot is legal. Any thoughts and experiences are appreciated.

2023.04.01 05:57 Fishchips77 Help With Soul Level for PvP!

Hey! Started a run where I plan on using the sword of milos and frenzy flame incantations and plan on playing a LOT of pvp. I understand that these two weapons don't exactly synergize with each other and have really spread out stats, but I really just wanted to try playing around with something that I have fun with. Currently I'm conflicted with whether I should level to 125 and have lower damage values with both weapons, or level to 150 and have good damage and good health and mind and stuff. Normally this wouldn't be a question in other souls games because lvl 150 meant fast rolling havel's and other scary things. But my general experience with elden ring so far is that it it a lot more chill with this min/max thing. I'm leaning towards 150 because I want all of my quality of life stats lol but if it means running into tons of bull goat rivers of blood or whatnot then I'm willing to put up with 125. (also is you do recommend 150 what vigor level do i want? Is 50 fine?)

Some weird location inconsistencies I found on Pandora
I was curious about the layout of Pandora in this game and wanted to try and figure out where it might be in relation to the locations found in Borderlands 2, so I went to all of the major maps and took notes of where Helios was crashed in relation to each map (Marked with yellow arrows) because it appears in the BL2 Fight for Sanctuary DLC so I figured it could be a good reference point. From there I noticed everything seemed totally weird/out of place so I went back over and recorded/marked off where "North" was on each map, (Marked with green arrows) and found there's not a consistent north either? What do you guys think?

2023.04.01 05:54 Particular-Study4605 My experience with being a therian

I'd like to make a few things clear before I write this post:
Now on with my experiences

The first time I was able to see my theriotype, I knew it was right. In the past, I've seen everything from coyotes to lynxes during meditation, but when I saw a raccoon-type creature I knew I was a Tanuki. I always knew I was a canine but before this, I always thought I was a maned wolf. My paws were always black but I never felt the connection.
The first time I was able to somewhat communicate with Podzol, she told me her name and showed me around the location I used to live at. I had a den in the ground and not far away was the beautiful waterfall I saw whenever I started meditating. It looked beautiful as always and felt so comforting.
The second time I was able to communicate with her, I was on a stone wall. This was really different because I never saw the location before this. Beyond the wall, there was some sort of village. The wall I stood on separated the forest from the village. When I was able to find and communicate with Podzol, she told me there was a reason she brought me to this location and told me to follow her. We jumped over the wall and darted towards the village. She told me this was something I did often, then she lead me towards a fence with peacocks inside. I couldn't really see much of what happened after that, but I know she killed a peacock to bring back into the forest. After that, I couldn't really connect anymore.
Today I did some research and found out Tanukis live close to water most of the time. I'm sure most animals do but to me, that was so reassuring. I also didn't know peacocks originated in Asia so that was cool to find out because I was so confused lol. I know a lot of people can't see much of their past lives (if they have/believe in them) and I don't feel like I can either. It's odd because it feels like I'm experiencing stuff from my past life, but I'm not truly seeing what happened in my past life. If anyone is a tanuki therian or a squirrel therian (Not really important, but once I saw a squirrel that was watching us while I was meditating) let me know! I'd love to be able to connect my experiences with someone else!
