Be Like, Books, and Complex: shock if fallout 76 really is a world where "every character is a real person" & there's no NPCs im making it my civic duty to be like this lowly tavern barkeep and then once i've established enough of a rapport i'm going to nuke all of west virginia and it will be in character teamOplayerO someone help where's the screenshot of some post somewhere about the mmo player who barkept for a longass time then fucked absolutely everyone over yes-sica God I spent countless hours as a teen playing on a heavily modded and roleplay enforced ultima online server. I played Cedric Sartone, simple farmer turned tavern owner who eventually turned it into THE BEST PLACE IN TOWN. It was poppin every night, I was buddies with every adventurer, soldier, mage druid, and ranger that played the game. After they went out and grinded their skills and did their quests, I was waiting for them with a warm fire and plenty of ale. I'd buy their ingredients and make awesome food and booze (max level cooking!) and was privy to all the gossip. Little did they know I had a side hobby, I was brewing massive amounts of the most gamebreakingly toxic poison possible. For over a year I roleplayed with these people as a simple barman, pretended to be their friend and confidant and then during a harvest festival where every player on our server was in attendance and I was payed to provide the food and drink... I poisoned every last morsel of food, every drop of drink and after the reagent delivered his speech and all of these fools raised their goblets for the toast and took that deadly sip, I stepped onto the stage and revealed what had happened. They where all going to die, and die they did. Now this was a permanent death server (hardcore rpers mind you) and some had been playing those characters for 8 years and there they all were collapsed and dying. Soon they were all unconscious, as you could only die if you went unconscious three times in one day or if a certain psychotic bartender came and cut off your head which I did to every player in our group of 38. They were all there, and unfortunately so was I Revenge against what, you ask? So the server had a pretty strict policy regarding pvp and pk, essentially the GMs had to determine if there was in character justification for any instance of disputed player killing, obviously my situation prompted a call for an investigation. I understood those rules from the start though, and I kept a written log in the game where I detailed my character's building hatred of every single other player character in the world. He would keep track of every little thing from petty slights, to unpaid tabs, but more importantly I adopted the little mannerisms that people roleplayed to develop their characters into the madness of mine So Elias was always whistling, well I recorded how infuriating Cedric found it in his journal, and soon he had multiple journals packed full of a thousand reasons an unstable maniac could use to justifiably re: server rules) murder anyone. The reagent who was also the server admin had some ornate cloak with a custom texture, so I wrote like three pages about how pompous it was, and extrapolated what kind of insufferable prick he must have been for wearing it. I would just write one or two things down every day for over a year, so I had many books full for the GMs to locate in the tavern basement and read through. The result was that they found my massacre to be in good form and in-character, so the server was not rolled back and instead they decided to reset and implement a new landmass they had been working on. Some people were really pissed off, mostly a handful of the veteran players who had been top dog for several years in their little gladiator arena. I only did any of it because my first character was murdered by some overzealous asshole who just used his character to project his inferiority complex. He killed me on my second day on the server because I wandered into the funeral of his friend (it was taking place in the middle of town and there was a crowd, of course I was curious) and because I was not invited and he was a known prick it was found justifiable for his character to kill mine because of the emotional turmoil blah blah. So yeah I said fck that, and rolled a new character who was ostensibly eager to please and non-threatening. I won. This one? Source: shock 114.795 notes D ; I hope I can become this spiteful one day

Computers, Confidence, and Fall: Mendokusa354 points an hour ago yikes he does seem annoyed, im going to talk to him right now if i dont show up to scrims it's because tairong has instructed me to not show up to scrims, there are only 12 computers in the practice area, and my not being there means that there's another computer to use for our support staff. HyunWoo, Tairong and MESR can all spectate and record different players and POV's. Me sitting there playing ranked on my own is something I can do from home without taking up one of the computers as well as not potentially disturbing comms and meetings by shotcalling in my ranked game. I'm not sure why Muma is annoyed at this but maybe Tairong hasn't been communicating it to him? I'll talk to him and give him a big hug Permalink Embed Save Parent Report Give Gold Reply Mendokusaii159 points an hour ago okay just to clarfiy, muma responded to this thread too, the annoyed tone was just at ranked and at the "FREEMENDO" spammers, it's annoying since he's a player and he doesn't have any say in these decisions. He didn't mean for the comment to be or even remotely seem malicious in any way, don't give him shit for itl Everyone knows how annoying ranked can be- Permalink Embed Se Parent Report Give Gold Reply Mendokusai[score hidden] 49 minutes ago Part of Overwatch is individual skill and play, I need to play on my own and practice on my own so I don't fall off mechanically, l've always been a grinder and at some point maintaining my confidence as a player is extremely important. No matter the situation when I get put in I will be playing catch up with my teammates, synergy, communication, new strats. But also when I'm put in over someone else it'll most likely be due to specific strats or maps or heroes. After doing nothing but spectating for months you kind of get put in a position where you have to grind ranked way more than other players just to maintain a good level, the practice you miss from scrims is something you have to overcome Permalink Embed Save Parent Report Give Gold Reply Mumanji 253 points an hour ago This is in no way malicious, mendo has been sick and away a lot and it just gets annoying see a constant "Freemendo" spam when I'm a player and I have no control over this. He'll play when he's able to, that's all there is to it. Anyone who thinks I could be even slightly angry with mendo doesn't know our relationship in the slightest. Edit to add something extra, my tone was such because that ranked game was very frustrating LOL Permalink Embed Save Report Give Gold Reply Mendokusaii 213 points an hour ago ok move on guys, thread is dead muma and i love eachother, who would have thought? Permalink Embed Save Parent Report Give Gold Reply kunstpause: Muma Mendo clarifying some things about Mendo’s playtime and him not scrimming atm.

7/11, 9/11, and Beautiful: HEARTWARMING LIFE STORIES Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face. ay, someone else's tragedy provided the miracle my family had prayed for. Thanks to this stranger, my dad will have a heart. It's so odd to think that an accidental death just saved his life. Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn't recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, "On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center." Today in downtown San Diego, I watched a blue collar Mexican man get harassed for being Mexican. It was a blatant act of discrimination. And the man actually began crying. As he left the office building, he took off s jacket. His t-shirt underneath read, "I love the USA!" Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn't eaten anything in over 3 ys and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, "We can share it. Today, after telling my grandmother that I didn't want to risk making such a huge mistake, she looked at nd said, "Looking back on it all, there are so many stakes I wish I had had the courage to make when I was your age." Today, a 12 year old boy died in a house fire near my neighborhood. After he pulled his mom to safety, he ran back into the burning house for his 5-month-old baby sister Today, my blind friend explained to me in vivid detail how beautiful his new girlfriend is Today, I was stopped at a traffic light when a mid aged homeless woman asked me for change. I usually I don't give out dollars to the homeless because I assume they are going to buy booze. But I saw her 45 minutes later at 7/11 buying bread and peanut butter. She was so happy to see me Today at the Atlanta airport, as I walked off a plane dressed in my Army uniform, a little girl grabbed my hand and asked me if I would be going back overseas soon. I told her I would be in 6 weeks. he smiled and said, "Can you please tell my daddy that I love him. My mommy told me he's never coming home from over there Today, as soon as my 5-year-old baby brother came into my room, I yelled at him to get out without even looking up at him. When he didn't listen and I turned around to yell again, I noticed he had a bowl of cherries (my favorite) in his hands. He said, " ." Sorry, I just wanted to share these with you Today, I stopped to chat with the office janitor like I do every Monday morning on my way into work. And at the end of our conversation he grinned and said, "You know, you're the only one who ever stops to talk to me around here, and you're the President and CEO. you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com epicjohndoe: Heartwarming Stories

Ass, Fucking, and Google: unpicasso probably my favorite thing abt being a millennial is that i can lie on my resume abt shit like being proficient in excel bc i have the common sense to just google anything i dont know how to do which gives me a giant fucking edge over gen x in the job market bc somehow that strategy never occurs to employers and my underqualified ass looks like steve jobs every time i use a youtube tutorial to make a spreadsheet jadelyn Everyone in my office sings my praises for what I can do with excel for this exact reason, even though I joke with them that "I have no idea how to do that - but give me half an hour and an internet connection and I'll figure something out for you." I even once specifically said in response to my grandboss commenting on my excel skills, "You do realize that I just like.. .google stuff when you ask me to do something with excel that I don't know how to do, right? But his praise didn't change at all. There was no "Wait, that's all it is? Instead, he said "Yes, but the fact that you think to do that and that you know exactly how to phrase your searches and how to sift through the results to get the right answer, and you then integrate what you've learned and use it going forward is still so much more than any of the rest of us [the other 5 ppl on my team are all mid-40s and up] can do. To you, it's just googling stuff," but it's still a unique and valuable skill you bring, so don't shrug off the compliments so cavalierly, okay? And this was coming from an executive with an MBA. Don't undervalue your googling skills, kids. It's not lying if you know you can figure it out Googling

Black Lives Matter, College, and Community: Natalie Lane @Open_Lane Obama did not support Marriage Equality when I voted for him in 2008. But he seemed easier to lobby than McCain. #Hillary2016 Nov 2, 2016, 3:12 PM from Manhattan, NY 9 RETWEETS 8 LIKES Natalie Lane @Open_Lane 3h Obama finally supported marriage equality during the 2012 election. I voted for him even though it was an election flip flop. #Hillary2016 t2 Natalie Lane @Open_Lane If my community and I had stayed home for not having a perfect candidate, we wouldn't have marriage today. #Hillary2016 3h t 8 4 Natalie Lane @Open_Lane 3h We have ALWAYS had two imperfect candidates. We have ALWAYS voted on the one that was easier to lobby. One who might listen. #Hillary2016 4 Natalie Lane @Open_Lane 3h #Hillary 2016 is more progressive than both 2008 & 2012 Obama. She & 2016 Obama are on the same page. I have to vote to protect my rights. t1 nillia: Just as ‘08 and ‘12 Obama “evolved” on marriage equality, Hillary has recently been “evolving” on issues like TPP, student loans, & BlackLivesMatter.  Not all there yet, but a start.  Trump wants trickle down economics, a reinstatement of stop and frisk, and conservative SCOTUS nominations to reverse our progress. He will not “evolve” for us no matter how much we lobby.  I know we all want and deserve more progress. Many young voters want to sit out unless a candidate has it all. Voter silence is a mistake that will hurt us. Staying home won’t “revolutionize the system.” The system is used to youth voter apathy. They ignore us because we won’t pressure them.  We have to use our voices, vote for the person most likely to listen, & shout & lobby till we achieve our goals. Please. It works. Apathy doesn’t. #Hillary2016 to protect our progress from Trump. #Hillary2016 so the person we lobby for the next 4 years might actually listen. It does seem like she’s starting to, or we wouldn’t have seen this:
