2020.11.27 12:52 edufiorivan The woman in the myth: Athena

The woman in the myth: Athena

Panathenaic amphora from tomb 11C (Painter of Berlin, 480-470 BC): Athena is also the patroness of the art of weaving.
Born as an adult and in arms from the head of Zeus, Athena is the goddess of above all technical wisdom, therefore the protector of those who know how to create works with their own hands, of ingenious craftsmen, as well as of cunning warriors, and for this reason known as Athena Promachos. Also called Athena Parthenos, the virgin Athena, since she never had any husband or lover. Hence also the name of its most famous temple, the Parthenon.
The Panathenaic Amphora was born as a prize for the Panathenaic games, competitions established in 566 BC. C. at the behest of Pisistrato on the model of the Olympic games, with the addition of musical and poetic competitions. There was a subdivision in the competitions, which included competitions open only to Athenians and others to all Greeks. The duration of these games was approximately 5 or 6 days and for the Athenians it was a real honor to participate.
The most prestigious race was the chariot race, the winner of which received 140 amphorae filled with olive oil.
The Panathenaic amphora that you can admire here is the only example of its kind coming from the Spina necropolis and, to date, the only one depicting a quadriga attributed to the Painter of Berlin, one of the greatest Attic potters of the 5th century. B.C.
While the neck is decorated with opposing palmettes and at the base with thin pods, on side A you can admire Athena Promachos vaulted with the profile to the left fighting, holding a spear, a shield with a gorgonic mask, an Attic helmet with a tall crest on his head. She's wearing the chiton with sleeves and surcoat. On the shoulders and on the chest she has the icy edged with snakes, which is a magical shield. On the side there are two Doric columns on which a rooster is placed, a constant of Panathenaic for many centuries, and along the left one there is the inscription TON ATHENEN ATHLON (an award in Athens).
On side B, you can see a chariot race in the Panathenaic races, a charioteer with reins and goad, cheering the four galloping horses pulling a chariot.
Panathenaic amphorae were produced starting from the sixth century BC, many found in Attica, but given their preciousness, often resold and taken elsewhere. In Etruria and among the Italic populations they were highly sought after for their strong ideological significance, as a sign of adherence to Greek culture. All painted with the black-figure technique, they kept it until about the 2nd century BC, even after the diffusion of the red-figure technique, precisely to preserve a link with the origin of the games linked to the goddess. Over time the shape remained the same, but what changed was the decoration, which adapted to the tastes and fashion of the times: for example, Athena began to be turned to the right and no longer to the left.

2020.11.25 07:13 Lonesomespy [A3] [EVENT] Casual Vietnam OP

Planning on making a casual unsung Zeus mission with a couple buddies of mine, and I thought it’d be a good idea to get a few more people in to have some fun and really use the assets effectively.
If you’re interested PM me and I’ll send you my discord and the modlist when i have time. There isn’t a set date on when we plan to be playing this, but hopefully this does well and we can work around whenever we’re all available. (I’ll be getting a teamspeak server and we’ll be using TFAR. Discord is for contacting)

2020.11.24 21:24 FoxenTinker [US][A3]Recruiting][Semi-Realism] UNSC 89th Joint Task Force

The UNSC 89th Joint Task Force is a large, long-time running unit for over 2 years now. We are heavily Halo-themed, but deliver an unconventional take to what the UNSC does in lore. With a good handful of our members either active military or prior-military, a lot of what we do is very streamlined and informative. It also allows us to appease the more serious Mil-Sim members while still keeping some casual members also happy. We are also Arma-noob friendly; whether you are new to Arma or an Arma Veteran, our trainers are very knowledgeable and happy to help you while teaching you how we do things in the 89th.
In the 89th, our unit consists of our primary force and 2 detachments:
UNSC Marines: Everyone starts here; everyone is a rifleman. As the bread and butter of the unit, you are very versatile in what you can do. From here, you can climb the ladder to become a Team or Squad Leader, a Radio Telephone Operator, a Medic, or take on the simple role of Anti-Tank, Autorifleman, etc. You are boots-on-the-ground and ready to kick ass.
Legion Squadron: Our birds in the sky. After you are RTO trained, you can fly alongside our Legion Pilots. They provide us with quick inserts, Close Air Support, Medevac, resupplies; they are one of our most important detachments in completing our objectives. All of our Legion Pilots have thousands of hours in Arma and are very experienced in their role, they are also happy to train you if you are not a comfortable pilot.
Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST): The Helljumpers themselves going in feet first. As an ODST, you take on specialized tasks alongside our Marines. You may be sent on high-priority missions or be tasked with clandestine operations. In the end, you are assisting our Marines in their mission. You may be an ODST, but we are a team.
What We Offer:
  • Operation Times every Friday and Sunday at 7:00pm (1900) EST unless it falls on a National Holiday. You will need to come to one Operation a week to be considered active
  • A dedicated server open 24/7 for you to play on whenever you like with exceptional performance.
  • An interactive community with an active command staff and members, all willing to help.
  • A Streamlined, informative training process and chances for leadership positions.
  • An active team of Zeus's that put together FTX's or "Fun Ops" throughout the week. These are optional to attend.
  • Active Server Technicians and Modders/Designers who provide personalized content to our Unit, keep our mods up to date, and maintain the quality performance our server provides to the Unit.
This sounds great! How do I join?
First, you must meet the minimum requirements:
  • Minimum 16 years of age; we do accept those younger, but they must undergo a deeper evaluation to ensure they bear the level of professionalism we hold.
  • A working headset and mic - for obvious reasons
  • A good level of patience and maturity. A willingness to learn is a plus.
  • If you meet the requirements, you need to join our Discord!
  • After you join our Discord, you will need to go to the Orientation channel and request an Orientation. This is a simple 10 minute talk for us to learn more about you and explain the unit and how we operate in depth.
  • Once we accept you, you will need to go through Basic Combat Training (BCT). Here is where we set up all your controls, TFAR, and explain how our unit operates during operations. This course can take 1 hour or 3 hours depending on your level of knowledge with base Arma, ACE, and OPTRE.
After that, you are in! If you have any questions, feel free to message any of our trainers in our Discord. If you made it this far, thanks for reading and we hope to see you in the 89th.

2020.11.24 18:09 Boop108 Pandora And The Magic Box

This article is illustrated with a lot of film stills. If you would like to see the illustrated version click here.
https://36toesproductions.medium.com/pandora-and-the-magic-box-6d519a99b387
Its not clear what Joseph Sarno thought he was doing when he wrote and directed this “film” in 1965. Pandora And The Magic Box is equal parts Gypsy Rose Lee, Henny Youngman, and Homer. If those references are too dated for you it’s a little like Kim Kardashian, Jerry Seinfeld, and RR Martin. Throw it all in a blender hold your nose and wait for the screaming to stop before you pour it out. The storyline is a disordered jumble of Grecian history and mythology cobbled together in a hopelessly complicated soap opera that the audience didn’t pay to see. They came to see naked ladies but they don’t get that. There is a lot of sheer cloth and glittery pasties but nothing explicit.
The film seems to belong to the nudie cutie genre but it does not live up to that name. Instead of nude scenes strung together by a rudimentary plot, it is a hopelessly disjointed story punctuated by occasional appearances of scantily clad women.
The film does however have three of the four requisite elements of the nudie cutie: cuties, a plot, so that it qualifies as a film and not stag porn, and lastly a string of horrible one-liners. Nudie Cuties often include these terrible borscht-belt-style comedians that harken back to the burlesque club days when strip clubs could claim to be legitimate “night clubs” by including Z list comedians. Pandora and The Magic Box includes such groan-worthy zingers as, “She’s so wrinkled that when she smiles she looks like a Venetian blind.” “She’s so used to getting her own way she writes in her diary four weeks ahead.” “It's rumored he’s so crooked that every time he counts his money he stands in front of a mirror. He doesn’t trust himself out of his sight.”
The film does have some interesting details. Zeus seems to be a Jew from Brooklyn. Most of his lines end in a question mark and a shrug. He has a cheap strap on beard and a floppy, cardboard lightning bolt he uses to punctuate his sentences.
Pandora doesn’t have much of a role in the film. Mostly the film is centered on Theseus who seems to be experiencing Odysseus’ Odyssey and Hercules’ Twelve Labors simultaneously. The whole mess is narrated to us by Aphrodite who breaks the fourth wall and addresses us directly from her chez lounge. She watches Theseus as he encounters the infamous Amazons but gets bored. In an effort to spice things up she sprinkles “lust dust” on everyone but the Amazons find that some of Theseus’ men are not tempted by their charms.
In an unexpected turn of events, the film includes a subtext about Greek sexuality. Using vanity as a stand-in for being gay, some of the sailors are so obsessed with working out and preening themselves that they are not “interested” in the buxom female warriors. It is easy to tell when someone in the film is horny because arousal is always announced by a comical “boing” sound effect. There are a few slide whistle pratfalls as well.
The sets are comprised of a curtain, a few columns, and some branches. There are only so many ways you can rearrange such sparse elements, but most of the film takes place in semi-darkness so it doesn’t really matter. In the end, Pandora marries Theseus? In the canonical version, he marries Phaedra. It might have been a clerical error both ladies are filed under P.
It ends of course with Pandora opening the box and releasing a whole bunch of trouble-making, half-naked ladies who tear the place apart. Again in the traditional version, the last thing in the box is hope. In this version, the last thing in the box is Theseus’ new mother-in-law. I don’t know what the symbolism of that means but the film closes with a final message from Aphrodite, “I’m sure somewhere this story must have a moral but I’m sure you’d like it better if it had immoral.”

2020.11.23 21:55 Glad_Thanks_3504 About to purchase components for my first PC Build! Any suggestions would really be appreciated.

I have added my draft build below. Please feel free to change whatever you would like.
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Mostly single player games. I will be working on it but I don't think that will be an issue as it is not video editing but just a ridiculous number of word documents, chrome tabs and excel sheets.
My monitor is a 49 inch ultrawide at 1440P and 120HZ. When I finish my build, I will likely be playing Red Dead Redemption, Cyberpunk, Civ and Tropico.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$1800-$2200. USD
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
As soon as possible. Buying parts as they become available.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Just the tower
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
US. I do not not currently have access to a Microcenter but will have easy access in about 2 weeks.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
AOC AGON AG493UCX 49" Monitor
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
No
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
No
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
Doesn't matter too much to me.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Yes. I would like to mount a Thermaltake Core P3 ATX Mid Tower Case to the wall.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
I have my own copy.
Extra info or particulars:
The only mistake in the list is that the ram is a TEAMGROUP T-Force Zeus DDR4 32GB Kit (2 x 16GB) 3000MHz but it is the same price as the ram listed below.

2020.11.23 14:08 NotNotSimon Can I get your thoughts on some side deck choices?

Hi all, working on updating the side deck for my Aggro Orcust deck and wanted to get your thoughts on a few cards.
My main two choices are:
Artfiact Lancea vs D.D. Crow
and
Book of Moon vs Book of Eclipse vs Crackdown

To give a little bit of context, this is my deck for remote duels, and right now the current pool of decks in our meta include:
Dragon Link (one's on Chaos Zombie Phantom Knights, the other is on Dragoon. Neither have Smoke Grenade), Dinosaurs (One at full power, one that's a little out of date), Cyber Dragon (I think they are all on a more standard control build now), Sky Striker (with Dragoon), Mystic Mine, Plunder Patrol, Unchained, Zoodiac (No Zeus yet I think), Salamangreat, Virtual World (not sure if it's a finished build yet though), Numeron Guru, Eldlich (either pure or stun for now), Madolche, Prank-Kids, Sacred Beast, Invoked Shaddoll, Pure Stun, Zombie World Control. I'm probably forgetting a few, but you get the idea; there is a far amount of variety here.
I'm currently maining Dinowrestler Pankratops, Forbidden Droplets, Infinite Impermanance, and Evenly Matched. And my side currently has Nibiru, the Primal Being. I have three slots for hand traps (Lancea or Crow) and 3 slots for something slower games (Moon, Eclipse or Crackdown).
Artifact Lancea hits fewer decks, but can be a blowout card.
D.D. Crow hits more decks, but is less impactful than Lancea. I'd need to play it smart to get the most value out of it.
Book of Moon helps out stun cards like Herald of the Arc Light, Inspector Boarder, Fossil Dyna. Can help vs Zoodiac and Dinosuars (to stop XYZ climbing and the Ultimate Conductor Tyranno in BP).
Book of Eclipse does the same as Book of Moon, but is a higher risk, higher reward card. I'm playing aggro so I should be able to clear the board or go for lethal before the opponent gets any draws off the card, but it is still a draw back to consider. Having the monsters flip up again can hurt too sometimes.
Crackdown is the slowest of these three options, but it can remove problematic monsters while giving me a body to link with.
Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Maps and Mods required:

Map: Malden

Briefing:

We are playing as part of the Dutch Marine Corps.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlands_Marine_Corps

Situation

It is July 1965, America is focused on Vietnam, as is most of the world. In the East Atlantic the tiny island nation of Malden has sent a letter to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization asking for two things, membership in NATO and assisting in the elimination of a violent Communist led rebellion that has taken over half of the island. With this plea for help, America has asked other NATO countries for them to directly intervene as the Americans have a shared air force base with the Malden Air Force, and an army base on the south east island.
Just as the Canadians answered the call, so did the Dutch sending their Korps Marinier to help the people of Malden. Two days after 2PPCLI assaulted across the center of Malden the Dutch Marines are conducting an amphibious invasion in the flank of the Soviet positions with plans to move through the enemy and clear the remainder of Malden.
(As we were unable to complete all of the objectives in our first go around, part 2 will be a continuation of Olive Strike)
Earlier in your mission a Soviet medic surrendered to you, he has since been brought back to base to be handed over to the proper authorities.

Enemy Forces

The Canadians were surprised by the presence of Soviet infantry, armor, and airborne forces on Malden. Intel shows the Soviets helping to take out the majority of the Malden Military while the Communist Militia secured the people. We expect similar resistance to what the Canadians received, Soviet forces and Communist Militia throughout the southern portion of the island.

Friendly Forces

The Canadians have stopped their attack to secure the north of the island, hunting down communist holdouts. The Nationalist militia was eliminated in this southern region, and those not killed have fled north. There are American forces on the island to the east of the mainland. We have deployed from the HNMLS Amsterdam with landing craft. We now have our trucks.

Civil/Terrain considerations

It is believed that all civilians are out of the area, and you are clear on all targets.

Mission

Objective Spanje-Algier: Complete
Objective West-Indie: Complete
Objective Seneffe: Complete
Objective Kirkduin-Doggersbank: The old palace of the Malden President has been taken over by the Soviet Army and Communist Leadership. Destroying any forces here will stop the Communists from taking over the country.
Objective Bali-Atjeh: The town of Cancon is the central escape route for Soviet forces retreating. Capture the towns strongpoints, the Mayor's house and Harbour office will stop the Communists in the region, allowing follow up units to clear it.
Objective Chatham: The central town of Chapoi is one of the last holdouts of the Soviets, capturing the Town Office and Storage Office strongholds will allow follow up units to clear the town.
Objective Rotterdam: We have found a Soviet motorcade, with armoured vehicles. Clearing it out will weaken the enemy control of the region. Any vehicle not destroyed will be destroyed later.
Objective Javazee: The eastern town of Le Port is the location of the final Communist holdout. Clearing the Town Office should weaken the enemy enough for follow up units to clear the town.
Objective Nieuw-Guinea: The eastern military harbour is the Soviet final escape. Capturing this port will stop any holdouts from taking an obvious exit, making them easier for follow up units to find.
(If there are any objectives not complete there will be a Part 3. I know there are a lot of objectives, please don't feel bad it is a MM issue.)

Assets

You have access to Trucks, Jeeps, M119 Artillery Pieces, and a small number of Huey and Chinook Helicopters.

Administration/Logistics

The Huey crew will be running reinsertion and resupply runs, as well as provide light air support (Door Guns) and recon from above.
If you respawn proceed to the radio on the table to inform the pilots that you need a pickup, by interacting with it. If you join late you will have to either grab a radio and call for a pickup or respawn and activate the radio there, the latter being easier.

Due to the limits of technology only Command team, Section Leaders and Section 2iCs (FTLs) will have radios.

If you are missing kit:

There is a "missing kit" arsenal box at spawn and at respawn. These are for if you are missing any pieces of kit. The one at spawn is located on the back deck of the house across the road from where the vehicles are. The one at respawn is to the right of the radio for calling on helicopters for re-insertion.

Slotting:

Make sure your slotting comment has these vital pieces of information:
in-game name, discord name, role
CO, squad leaders and special roles (all roles in bold letters) should join the teamspeak 30 minutes before the event starts for planning the mission.
If this is your first event with us we would also like to ask you to join 30 minutes early for a quick introduction to MC.
ROLES
X-Ray: The Helicopter will serve as logistics, light air support via the door guns, and recon for the platoon.
Assistant Autorifleman: AARs have tripods for the AR's FN MAG MMGs. These are optional and can be dropped.

Slots

This list is not guaranteed to be up to date! Do a quick look through the comments to make sure your slot hasn't already been claimed.
You need to have played at least three events with us for all leadership and special roles like pilots or vehicle crew.

2020.11.20 14:56 Iamnotkira I am 25 years old making $55,000, living in Brooklyn and working as an Executive Assistant

I’ve always wanted to write one of these and am quite smart with money or learning to be anyway. My parents were always decent with finances, although, I learned most of it from reading and my brothers. I love self improvement in all areas and read what I can about it.
Ever since the pandemic hit, my roommates have fled home and still pay for the apartment. I’ve been between the apartment and family, spending about 1-2 months each place. Partly bc I’m paying for the apartment and partly bc the relationship with my father has always been tense from a young age. I’ve really come to value my independence and who I’ve become away from them.
Section One: Assets and Debt
Retirement Balance: Roth IRA $10500, Simple IRA $4000, 401K $5000. Go 1% company matching.. I didn’t have a 401K till last year which is why I ended up with two IRA’s. I plan to keep investing in the Roth and 401K.
Equity if you're a homeowner: Sike. Maybe when I’m 33.
Savings account balance: $4400, invested another $5200 of my savings into ETFs since I won’t need for the next 5 years, Bonds from money I received from relatives as a kid $3000, emergency fund in HYSA $15300
Checking account balance: $725
Credit card debt (and how you accumulated it): $200 or so. I pay it off every month.
Student loan debt: $0 due to parents, scholarships, and me paying off the last bit for my BA
Net Worth: $48k ish. 50K by end of year
I have an 8 year ish goal of buying my own place in the city by 33. With or without a man. Investing the majority of the savings into a brokerage account and keeping some of it in the bank. Recently, I have more savings in hand in case of apartment moving early next year. Lease is up in March.
Section Two: Income
Income Progression: I had a PT job in high school at a library and a PT job in college at a restaurant. Think I made $7 - $8 at both those jobs. I’ve had two internships for free, both by NYS. I've been working in my current field for over 2 years, my starting salary was $43,000.
When I first graduated school I taught English in Asia for a year, I started out making below the average college grad in that country and almost doubled my salary by the end of my stay. Ultimately as much as I loved the kids, I really disliked Asian work culture plus I was so homesick. I travelled Asia a bit then came back and got a job two months later working PT at a concert venue and PT as an office workereceptionist, both jobs were the min wage of $13 at the time. I lived at home for a total of 3 months before moving out and making it work on these minimum wage jobs :)
First few months I live in Manhattan then I moved into NJ to save money then moved to BK once I got my EA job. You can live in the city on these wages as long as you are smart about it.
I worked these jobs for a year or so before switching to EA making $43000. I was an EA at a magazine company for less than a year, the company was a mess and so many things in my job got so messy towards the end.
I jumped to a similar company as a salaried FT employee and I’ve been at the current place for 1 ½. I really love the people but I don’t see a career for me here. I kept the PT concert venue gig for about 2 years of this journey on top of my corporate roles, it was a great way to see lots of amazing shows for me and get paid.
My next goal is to make a career shift towards Project management in media/entertainment/music industries, more specifically looking at Project Coordinator jobs. I want to be more challenged and felt that this was the way to go and to play to my strengths. Unfortunately, it’s been a slow search.
Main Job Monthly Take Home:
Monthly take home: $2,930. Taxes in NYC are a b****. I throw 8% to my 401K and haven’t started to pay health insurance..YET
Salary wise we got an extra $2000 this year from a salary reduction allowing us to receive some unemployment in its place. I threw the extra money into my 2019 Roth IRA. I have yet to finish my Roth 2020 max and plan to in Dec.
Side Gig Monthly Take Home
I created a Rover account about a month ago. Originally I wanted to start fostering dogs first but the applications for those have been really slow and intense. I started to get bookings the past two weeks and a few last minute ones I couldn't take. Apparently one of the two clients I had last week recommended me to their doggy group. I was very grateful and flattered. After Rover took out 20% I’ve gotten $117 so far this month. I have another booking Thurs which will add $40. Total = $157 so far
Section Three: Expenses
Rent: $1200 w 2 roommates.
Renters / home insurance: nada
Retirement contribution: Besides what was mentioned above. An automated $50 goes to my Simple IRA every month
Savings contribution: I save $1200 a month
Investment contribution: I’ll typically take some of that savings and throw it into investments however, I don’t have a set amount.
Donations: I’ve donated about $150 annually. Typically I prefer to put in volunteer hours instead, but pandemic and BLM. I did help distribute snacks to early voters in BK. I normally volunteer at Make a wish, an animal shelter, and whatever volunteering my company has going on.
Electric/ Wifi/Cable/Gas: utilities come to ~$50. In the summer I was paying more since I had the AC and was in the apartment more. I appreciate that even though they haven’t been here in pandemic, we all split the bills.
Cellphone: Luckily my mom pays that
Subscriptions: Spotify family plan is $40 annually. The only subscription I will pay for. Netflix and Amazon through brother, Disney+ and Hulu through roommates.
Before this year I kept using friends' school emails for the Spotify student plan + Hulu for $5 a month. Ah those were the days~
Gym membership: Annual corporate membership at Blink $180. They paused for about 6 months and reactivated it in Sept. I tried to cancel, and they calculated out how much I would get vs cancellation fees = I don’t get any money back. I’m not going so this membership was a wash.
Regular therapy: $150 per month. $75 per session and I do every other week. I just started in quarantine and it’s been really nice.
Credit Card Yearly fees: $95 annually. I have the Sapphire referred which was waived last year, not this year, and I plan to cancel before the fees for next year kick in.
Paid hobbies: I was in a chorus before pandemic hit and sent about $35 annually
Day 1 ~Thurs~
I make some coffee and stare at my very iridescent puzzle for a bit. The vinyl comes to an end and it’s about that time I start to work.
I wrap myself in a blanket as I continue to work.
Daily expense $2
Day 2 ~Friday~
Okok I know Thurs was long. It’ll prob be the most exciting day I’ll even have this week
Daily expense $15.99
Day 3 ~Sat~
Daily expense $15.74
Day 4 ~Sun~
Daily expenses $0
Day 5 ~Mon~
Daily expenses $16.02
Day 5 ~Tues~
Daily expenses $94.32
Day 6 ~Wed~
Daily expenses $0
Day 7 ~Thurs~ Wow guys we made it to the last day!
At the end of each day please tally up your daily expenses. Then at the end of your diary please tally up all expenses in the following categories:
Food + Drink :$61.32
Fun / Entertainment 0
Home + Health 0
Clothes + Beauty 0
Transport 0
Gifts: $80.75
Lastly, reflect on your diary!
This feels like a pretty typical pandemic week for me minus the office run. Budget wise it felt accurate except for the xmas purchases. My family and I all have birthdays in the latter half of the year too and I always end up spending a bit more during those months. Before the pandemic most of my allocated fun money went to food and going out which I was fine with. I’ve always had a budget since college, and this is the first time I’ve done a weekly break down so that was interesting. It made me feel hyper aware of my purchases which I didn't really like lol
The two books I read this week were: Modern Romance and Joy Luck Club
Hope you enjoyed.

2020.11.20 01:38 FoxenTinker [US][A3]Recruiting][Semi-Realism] UNSC 89th Joint Task Force

The UNSC 89th Joint Task Force is a large, long-time running unit for over 2 years now. We are heavily Halo-themed, but deliver an unconventional take to what the UNSC does in lore. With a good handful of our members either active military or prior-military, a lot of what we do is very streamlined and informative. It also allows us to appease the more serious Mil-Sim members while still keeping some casual members also happy. We are also Arma-noob friendly; whether you are new to Arma or an Arma Veteran, our trainers are very knowledgeable and happy to help you while teaching you how we do things in the 89th.
In the 89th, our unit consists of our primary force and 2 detachments:
UNSC Marines: Everyone starts here; everyone is a rifleman. As the bread and butter of the unit, you are very versatile in what you can do. From here, you can climb the ladder to become a Team or Squad Leader, a Radio Telephone Operator, a Medic, or take on the simple role of Anti-Tank, Autorifleman, etc. You are boots-on-the-ground and ready to kick ass.
Legion Squadron: Our birds in the sky. After you are RTO trained, you can fly alongside our Legion Pilots. They provide us with quick inserts, Close Air Support, Medevac, resupplies; they are one of our most important detachments in completing our objectives. All of our Legion Pilots have thousands of hours in Arma and are very experienced in their role, they are also happy to train you if you are not a comfortable pilot.
Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST): The Helljumpers themselves going in feet first. As an ODST, you take on specialized tasks alongside our Marines. You may be sent on high-priority missions or be tasked with clandestine operations. In the end, you are assisting our Marines in their mission. You may be an ODST, but we are a team.
What We Offer:
  • Operation Times every Friday and Sunday at 7:00pm (1900) EST unless it falls on a National Holiday. You will need to come to one Operation a week to be considered active
  • A dedicated server open 24/7 for you to play on whenever you like with exceptional performance.
  • An interactive community with an active command staff and members, all willing to help.
  • A Streamlined, informative training process and chances for leadership positions.
  • An active team of Zeus's that put together FTX's or "Fun Ops" throughout the week. These are optional to attend.
  • Active Server Technicians and Modders/Designers who provide personalized content to our Unit, keep our mods up to date, and maintain the quality performance our server provides to the Unit.
This sounds great! How do I join?
First, you must meet the minimum requirements:
  • Minimum 16 years of age; we do accept those younger, but they must undergo a deeper evaluation to ensure they bear the level of professionalism we hold.
  • A working headset and mic - for obvious reasons
  • A good level of patience and maturity. A willingness to learn is a plus.
  • If you meet the requirements, you need to join our Discord!
  • After you join our Discord, you will need to go to the Orientation channel and request an Orientation. This is a simple 10 minute talk for us to learn more about you and explain the unit and how we operate in depth.
  • Once we accept you, you will need to go through Basic Combat Training (BCT). Here is where we set up all your controls, TFAR, and explain how our unit operates during operations. This course can take 1 hour or 3 hours depending on your level of knowledge with base Arma, ACE, and OPTRE.
  • Don't be afraid if you're new. As already stated in this post, we take Arma Veterans and Arma Noobs alike. As long as you are willing to learn, we will take you.
After that, you are in! If you have any questions, feel free to message any of our trainers in our Discord. If you made it this far, thanks for reading and we hope to see you in the 89th.

2020.11.19 07:57 p888thaislot Thailand Slot Updated - Did you try this All-powerful Reels: Realm of Poseidon 918Kiss Slot in 2020?

Adored as the maker of ponies and dreaded as the instigator of tremors in equivalent measure, Almighty Reels: Realm of Poseidon acquaints players with Poseidon, who broadly became lord of the ocean when his dad Kronos was vanquished. This unbelievable Greek divinity has become the overwhelming focus in incalculable interesting fantasies – from stories depicting his various clashes with other amazing divine beings (counting his popular sibling Zeus), to stories which illustrate his numerous two-timing undertakings. In a flash conspicuous by his solid edge, puncturing green eyes, and particular silver hair and whiskers, Poseidon is regularly portrayed riding a chariot drove via seahorses. What's more, you'll infrequently observe Poseidon without his acclaimed harpoon, a supernatural weapon he used to make water sources and ponies. It was additionally known to raise ocean tempests and tidal waves when the god was feeling awful, which impeccably outlines that it is so fundamental to get him when he is feeling great. Thus, petition God for the ocean to be quiet as you turn the staggering reels of Almighty Reels: Realm of Poseidon. That could show Poseidon is in the temperament to relegate loads of 3x3 monster images and send a lot of free 918Kiss games your direction.

Another Powerful Almighty Reels Release

Frequently depicted as one of the greediest and most vicious Greek divine beings, on Almighty Reels: Realm of Poseidon the god vows to show his liberal side to the intrepid players among you. Plunge to the profundities of the sea, and prepare to visit the submerged royal residence he imparts to his marine-goddess spouse, Amphitrite. This is the most up to date expansion to the epic Almighty Reels arrangement, which has been generally welcomed at driving on the web club offering programming by 918Kiss Thailand. The arrangement likewise gives you the opportunity to meet one of Poseidon's siblings in Almighty Reels: Power of Zeus, while Almighty Reels: Garden of Persephone acquaints you with the lovely little girl of Zeus. We completely suggest looking at both after you've investigated every last trace of Poseidon's submerged domain. In any case, immediately, it's an ideal opportunity to make a sprinkle into the sea to see if this god is feeling liberal.

Nosey Around Poseidon's Underwater Palace

Keeping in accordance with the structure of other gambling club 918Kiss gaming machines delivered as a component of the Almighty Reels arrangement, the Almighty Reels: Realm of Poseidon video 918Kiss space contains five reels and 25 fixed win lines. Coin esteems start at simply 0.01, which means you can meet the defender of sailors from a low constraint of 0.25 credits – making it ideal for the individuals who like to play online 918Kiss gaming machines for little stakes. There is additionally a maximum wagered button for those of you who feel sure that Poseidon will favor you. This ups the ante to a strong limit of 100 credits for every turn. Set on the brilliant strides of Poseidon's luxurious castle, the reels of Almighty Reels: Realm of Poseidon are encircled by slamming waves to underline his control of the waters. Lamentably, we can't state the images have been planned with the very degree of inventiveness that has gone into the striking setting. Poseidon, who speaks to the most lucrative image, is the main image that varies from the compensation table of different games in the Almighty Reels arrangement. This implies you'll be seeing playing card images, cornucopias, harps, jars, fighter protective caps, wild royal residences and dissipated gold coins over the reels indeed. This is amazingly disillusioning, particularly when you consider the numerous consecrated creatures and images related with Poseidon. For instance, fish, ponies, seahorses and a spear could all have been incorporated as images to make it more special and assist it with standing apart from different games in the arrangement.

Paladin 5 primarily functions as a light cavalry unit, while also mixing in Air Assault from time to time. Our campaigns are based on contracts we are offered through many companies or even Governments throughout the globe. After each contract or at the end of each campaign, we collect our paycheck. Which in turn we use to purchase vehicles from vendors throughout the globe.
While we do not have any required training, we highly encourage ANY player to attend optional training when posted. If you are new, we will happily help get you familiarized with the game so you are not thrown into an operation with no understanding of what is happening. Most optional training will occur on Thursdays at 9PM Eastern Standard Time!
Paladin 5 offers its members a wide range of customization when it comes to operations. We do not have a strict uniform policy nor weapon policy. Everything that our Contractors can utilize will be available ACE Arsenal. Gear that we do restrict will have already been blacklisted from the ACE Arsenal.
Our main goal is to have an authentic experience and a fun one too. We still do strive for realism and professionalism while in-game, but outside of that we like to relax and have a good time. Does this sound like something you are interested in? Here are the basic requirements for joining up with Paladin 5!
  • Must be active for at least 3 Operations a month!
  • Must be at least 17 years old (Exceptions can easily be made based on interview)
  • Must have Discord and TeamSpeak 3 with a working microphone
  • Must be able to listen and adhere to Team Leads and CEO DURING Operations. (We do not enforce that outside of ArmA)
  • Must be willing to download our mod pack and stay up to date.
Paladin 5 does not have a rank structure and you will NEVER have to address someone as sir. We use a role structure system for our members that is based on attendance and how you perform in operations.
The structure is as follows:
  • CEO
  • Vice President
  • Chief of Operations
  • Assistant Director
  • Field Officer
  • Senior Team Lead
  • Team Lead
  • Veteran Contractor
  • Contractor

Aside from a regular contractor we offer specialized roles such as Crewmen, Combat Medic, Demolitions, Covert Operator, etc. to those that are interested. These do require the contractor to complete the training course for their desired role.
We are actively recruiting for:
  • Contractor
  • Combat Engineer
  • Combat Medic
  • Universal Crewmen
  • Zeus Operator
If this sounds like the community for you feel free to hop in and set-up an in-person interview to learn more!
Merging:
We are currently looking for any groups that would want to merge with us. We do allow groups to continue to lead their members or if they would like, we can mix them into our group and allow previous TLs and other roles (Pilot, Medic, EOD, etc.) to continue playing as that. We ARE NOT looking to merge into any group.
Kind Regards,
Chad Lowe

2020.11.17 16:20 1vizioN [OC] The Case for Renegades' lGL: Chris "Dexter" Nong

Hi GlobalOffensive! I recently covered how crosshair placement can improve your probability of eliminating enemies which was well received from you guys. I figured I would make another one since you guys enjoyed the first one. For today, we will be taking a look at dexter, who is currently the IGL for Renegades.

Introduction

Over the past few years, the CS:GO landscape has seen teams shift from tactical in-game leaders (IGL) to players who can not only call but frag out too. We have seen the retirement of tactical geniuses, such as Ex6tenz and Zeus, and the rise of IGLs with high fragging capabilities, such as gla1ve, blameF, and arT. I can even name a handful more other fragging IGLs, but my fingers are getting tired. The increase in fragging IGLs is a testament to that CS:GO has shifted from having four F1 racecar peekers and one mad scientist to four F1 racecar peekers and one mad scientist who can racecar peek too.

Analysis

Dexter is a mad scientist who is also a F1 racecar peeker. He is a jack of all trade and a team player who is willing to play any role for the team. Dexter has cemented himself as the best CS:GO player in the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) scene with his 1.25 rating in 2020. His stats are even more green than my bank account, just have a look!! Only ZyWoo, s1mple, and sh1ro rank higher above dexter in 2020 (Note: HLTV did not include Renegades for both world and regional ranking). One can remark that the level of CS in the ANZ scene is comparably worse than the level of CS in EU and NA. But being in the same company as ZyWoo and s1mple is a lofty achievement.
Let’s take a look to see where dexter ranks among all the top eight players in the ANZ scene for this year.
Team Rating 2.0 Impact Rating ADR (Average Damage/round) KPR (kills/round) DPR (Deaths/round) KAST
dexter Renegades 1.25 1.34 88.1 0.82 0.65 73.2%
sterling AVANT 1.24 1.25 81 0.8 0.59 74.3%
aliStair ORDER 1.22 1.31 80.3 0.78 0.6 72.2%
ekul Paradox 1.18 1.32 80.9 0.78 0.66 69.5%
INS Renegades 1.18 1.23 84.8 0.75 0.65 72.1%
Rickeh ORDER 1.18 1.14 80.4 0.72 0.59 73.8%
Sico Renegades 1.17 1.13 73.9 0.71 0.56 74%
USTILO ORDER 1.14 1.15 79.1 0.74 0.64 72.1%
Dexter is leading the pack, dominating six of the eight categories in the process. He leads in Rating 2.0, impact rating, ADR and KPR.
Perhaps dexter is having a career year? Maybe he’s just an onliner who is benefitting from the pandemic? Let’s take a look at the three-year (2017-2020) average for the same eight players, shall we?
Rating 2.0 Impact Rating ADR (Average Damage/round) KPR (kills/round) DPR (Deaths/round) KAST
Sico 1.23 1.22 80.5 0.77 0.57 74.6%
dexter 1.22 1.28 85.9 0.79 0.65 72.9%
sterling 1.21 1.18 78.6 0.78 0.59 73.7%
INS 1.19 1.23 84.8 0.75 0.65 72.9%
aliStair 1.15 1.21 76.5 0.73 0.62 71.3%
ekul 1.13 1.26 80.6 0.76 0.69 68.5%
Rickeh 1.13 1.13 78.1 0.70 0.63 72.3%
USTILO 1.08 1.12 77.0 0.70 0.68 70.8%
Liazz (last match on September 30, 2018 1.29 1.27 88.6 0.82 0.59 76.3%
erkaSt (last match on August 26, 2019). 1.19 1.22 83.9 0.78 0.66 72.7%
Smh, so it turns out that this dexter guy is a fraud since he’s not even first place. He’s lost to some guy who can’t even spell sicko right LMAO.
Wrong! Dexter came second in HLTV’s 2.0 rating with 1.22, which was only 0.01 behind Sico. Dexter still dominated the impact rating, ADR, and KPR categories. This establishes him as the most consistent and impactful ANZ player over the last three years. Keep in mind, this dude is doing this while IGLing.
While dexter’s been marinating in Australia for awhile, Liazz, Gratisfaction, and Rickeh were more of the fortunate ones to receive a golden ticket to NA. Let’s see how dexter stacks up against the players who ditched Australia. We will be comparing the ANZ stats of dexter’s and the import’s, at the time of their transfers.

Dexter vs Liazz (liazz was signed by Renegades on October 31, 2018)

Rating 2.0 Impact Rating ADR (Average Damage/round) KPR (kills/round) DPR (Deaths/round) KAST
dexter 1.11 1.22 83.6 0.76 0.66 72.1%
Liazz 1.19 1.23 86.2 0.79 0.60 75.1%
Liazz beats out dexter in all six categories, but dexter was not too far behind.

While

Dexter vs Gratisfaction (Gratisfaction was signed by Renegades on October 31, 2018)

Rating 2.0 Impact Rating ADR (Average Damage/round) KPR (kills/round) DPR (Deaths/round) KAST
dexter 1.11 1.22 83.6 0.76 0.66 72.1%
Gratisfaction 1.12 1.21 76.6 0.73 0.60 72.6%
Dexter ties Gratisfaction with three categories a piece. However, dexter gets the edge he leads in the important fragging categories.

Dexter vs Rickeh (Rickeh was signed by Renegades on July 12, 2016)

Rating 2.0 Impact Rating ADR (Average Damage/round) KPR (kills/round) DPR (Deaths/round) KAST
dexter 0.96 1.17 76.9 0.76 0.67 69.5%
Rickeh 1.10 1.24 78.4 0.73 0.64 70.4%
Dexter is 21 maps into his career. Not enough data here to make a comparison.

Dexter’s closest comparable would be Liazz as Gratisfaction is an AWPer. Liazz was ranked 1st in the time span that he played in ANZ, while dexter was ranked 7th. At the time of his pickup, Liazz was the best player in ANZ and had dominated every statistical category. (Sico, who was Liazz’ teammate, was ranked 2nd and Gratisfaction was ranked 6th for those who wanted to know)
So why was dexter not picked up?
  1. Gratisfaction was signed to replace Nifty as the AWPer
  2. Liazz, the #1 ANZ player at the time, was signed to replace USTILO
  3. AZR was Renegades’ IGL, thus every spot was filled
Lastly, let’s see how dexter stacks up against other IGLs during big events (+250k event). Dexter made his big event IGL debut at IEM Sydney 2018, so we will be looking at matches after that.
Team Maps Played Rating 2.0 Impact Rating ADR KPR DPR KAST
dexter Renegades 45 0.96 1.17 76.9 0.76 0.67 69.5%

karrigan Mouz & FaZe 201 0.94 0.92 69.2 0.59 0.69 67.4%
MSL North & OpTic 47 0.93 1.00 67.9 0.63 0.72 64.2%
Xizt Fnatic and FaZe 132 0.92 0.81 66.9 0.57 0.67 68%
Golden Fnatic & C9 138 0.91 0.91 67.5 0.59 0.70 65.3%
Daps NRG & C9 132 0.88 0.77 61.9 0.53 0.67 68.3%
Liazz 100T 132 1.01 0.92 69.7 0.61 0.64 71.8%
Disregarding the small sample of Dexter’s participation at big events, Dexter would be the 10th best rated IGL, above stanislaw. At IEM Sydney 2018, dexter eliminated MIBR posting a 60-54 scoreline with a 1.10 rating. Dexter has shown flashes of excellent fragging capabilities, achieving a 1.12 rating at IEM Sydney 2019 and going 28-16 / 1.53 rating against EG, fresh off their IEM New York 2019 win.

Conclusion

I personally believe dexter would make a great IGL if given the chance on a top team. Although his rating puts him in the same company as stanislaw and AZR, dexter is 2nd in ADR, 1st in KPR and has the 2nd highest impact rating. Dexter’s fragging capabilities puts him on par with gla1ve, blameF, and boombl4. These stats indicate that dexter is statistically a good fragger, even against the top teams of the world.
With dexter, I think you’re looking at a nitr0 type player. Dexter is a player who not only can IGL, but entry frag. He has an opening kill rating of 1.18, good enough for 1st on Renegades. In addition, dexter is a consistent fragger achieving a rating of 0.95 vs top 10 teams and 0.95 vs top 50 teams. But when it comes to the top 5 teams, dexter steps up his game with a 1.00 rating.
Dexter has history of being a loose IGL, but he can set up his team tactically well if needed to. He would be a great fit on Liquid, for instance. He has already shown flashes of being a great fragger even while IGLing. Any team looking for an IGL should be considering dexter.
tl;dr: dexter is an underrated IGL who has the potential to be a top 15 IGL.

2020.11.17 04:16 Mister_reindeer (Very Lengthy) Thoughts from a First-Time Miracleman Reader

I posted this on the Miracleman subreddit a few days ago, and it was suggested by one user that I repost it here, so I am doing so!
Long-time Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman fan, first-time Miracleman reader here. I recently read through all the 1980s and 1990s material, as well as George Khoury’s excellent Kimota! and Pádraig Ó Méalóid’s Poisoned Chalice. I’ve long been fascinated by the behind-the-scenes history of the character, and it was about time I got around to actually reading it. I loved it even more than I thought I would. Such wonderful characterizations, such a cool and dense mythology. It’s almost impossible to choose a favorite artist on the series. I didn’t think anyone would top Garry Leach for me, but I think Totleben must be the best. What he and Moore inspired one another to create in Olympus is a masterwork. Buckingham is tough to even compare to the other guys because he’s such a chameleon, but The Golden Age is such a visual feast that he deserves a shout-out too.
Having said that, I have so many things about the series I want to talk about. Some of them are questions (albeit ones that I fear are unanswerable), some are nitpicky critiques / minor things that bugged me (I previously made a nitpicky post about the MM Family’s ages, so I won’t bring that up again). I hope that it isn’t bad form to drop such a wordy post, but things seem understandably pretty slow here and I hope maybe a few people will be interested in some discussion about something I mention below. I’m just so excited to talk about this series. I also hope the below doesn’t sound too critical, because as I said, I loved the comic, but certain things stood out precisely because Moore and Gaiman’s writing is typically so airtight. Anyway, here are some random points I jotted down while I was reading…
In “The Approaching Light”: Why on Earth do Miracleman and Evelyn Cream spend the night in a hotel sleeping and wait a full day before rescuing Liz? It seems like a completely unnecessary delay when she’s in potentially imminent danger, on top of the already dubious storytelling stall that Miracleman has to take a plane (!) to Paraguay because the wind-chill would freeze Cream if he flew (okay, that’s a nice realistic twist on the usual “superhero carrying a normal mortal human” cliché, but why does he even need Cream to come with him?).
In my opinion, that Book 2 period gets unfairly criticized for being “uneven” (even by Moore himself). Changes in artist aside, Book 2 is actually a more unified story overall than Book 1 (which is not to say that the writing is better than Book 1 necessarily, just that it holds together better as a “book”). That being said, there are some uncharacteristically dicey storytelling choices Moore makes. Why would Gargunza just sit around biding his time in Paraguay as he grows older and closer to death, hoping for the off-chance that Mike will someday remember his post-hypnotic keyword? Why not make an anonymous phone call or send a letter that just says “Kimota” to trigger Mike’s memory? Why does he give Mike and Cream a three-minute head-start from Miracledog? This is such a cliché comic book villain gimmick of the type that would make Adrian Veidt cringe. Why wouldn’t he just have the dog tear them apart then and there in the living room? Finally, Gargunza saying Miracledog’s post-hypnotic keyword “Steppenwolf” in front of Mike is such a bad plan. He essentially hands him the disarming mechanism.
Despite having read two wonderful books on the history of Miracleman replete with interviews with all the relevant parties, I still can’t find a single good explanation for why Marvelman stopped appearing in Warrior after #21. Moore exasperatingly keeps blaming his falling-out with Dez Skinn, and neither Khoury nor Ó Méalóid ever calls him out on the fact that this makes no sense since he continued submitting V for Vendetta scripts to Warrior for another five issues after Marvelman disappeared, up until the very end of the magazine (Skinn himself, slippery and self-serving as most of his quotes are, is the only one who actually points this out). It also makes no sense that Moore specifically traces the moment of no return to a censorship argument over a story that appeared in Warrior #7, when he kept submitting Marvelman scripts for another 14 issues after that! Skinn, and Khoury, convincingly argue that it was the Moore/Davis rift that killed the strip, but a quote from Davis in Poisoned Chalice indicates that they were still on decent terms several months later, with Moore and Jamie Delano visiting Davis’s house round the time Delano took over Captain Britain. Skinn himself has admitted that Marvel UK’s legal threats weren’t the real reason he stopped publishing Marvelman but were subterfuge for whatever else was going on (the first letter from Marvel is dated 9/21, whereas Marvelman’s final appearance in Warrior had been cover dated August, presumably on sale earlier than that). There just doesn’t seem to be any particularly good reason for the strip to disappear at that particular moment.
I have to say, and I guess this will probably be a so-called hot take, I don’t think Chuck Beckum’s art on the series is the worst. It’s competent, stiff and completely uninspired, but not bad—just not on the level of most of the other amazing series artists. Rick Veitch’s art on #9, however, is wildly uneven, and in my opinion way worse than Beckum’s in many spots. Some stuff is beautiful (much of the birth scene), but some is downright ugly. In particular, Liz’s face barely looks like a human face in a lot of panels (it really kills that two-page flying truck sequence, which should be beautiful, but every single drawing of her is just so sketchy and off-model it detracts from what should be the joy and wonder). It’s strange, because his work on the following issue is pretty consistently solid. This isn’t even down to the change in inker (although Ridgway is of course wonderful). If you compare the pencils for #9 and #10, the difference in quality is jarring. I wonder if he was rushed to get #9 out in a hurry due to the flood-related delay at Eclipse? (#10 notably was released five months after #9, so perhaps he took more time with it.)
I know I said I wouldn’t harp on the MM Family’s ages again, but…Miraclewoman’s backstory in “Aphrodite” says Miracledog was already around in the 1950s-60s, which would make him quite old in 1982, unless this was a different dog (a dog who looks quite a bit like Pluto can be seen in one panel when Gargunza shoots his assistant). Or I guess if he spent a good deal of those two decades in Miracledog form, Pluto would have aged less. Answered my own question there!
Again harping on Miraclewoman’s backstory in “Aphrodite,” isn’t it a little weird that the Spookshow confuses Young Nastyman’s body for Young Miracleman’s? YN is in a volcano in Iceland whereas YM was supposed to be quite a ways away over the North Sea when he encountered the bomb.
Did Young Nastyman not have a failsafe word? It seems odd that he wakes up and overpowers Gargunza, when Gargunza predicted this exact type of occurrence two years earlier and put a mechanism in place to prevent it in the others.
It’s somewhat surprising that Winter is the first super-offspring, given that Young Nastyman seems to go on quite the tear for a bit, Miraclewoman seem to have a pretty healthy sexual appetite, and Kid Miracleman was presumably doing heaven knows what for the better part of two decades. I guess KM probably killed all his conquests immediately after, though.
In “Hermes,” rather prophetically predicting our own 2020 reality, Miracleman says that due to screens allowing people to work from home, there are “no cities” as of 1987. But London still appears to be very densely populated, and we later see in Gaiman’s run (#24) that NYC is also still very much a thing.
In “Hermes,” the Qys Kingqueen says Earth is the first “new world in intelligent space” since the Qys and the Gulf World/Warpsmiths first met, yet one issue later, in “Pantheon,” Phon Mooda claims to have seen “a dozen” new worlds. Given that the two empires first met 11,000 Earth years ago (again, per “Hermes”), this presumably makes Phon Mooda quite old!
I have to say, I wasn’t thrilled with Liz’s characterization as it evolved throughout the series. She started out as a strong, witty, smart character, by far a stronger character than Mike: she is carrying them financially, and she is the one who investigates and figures out a lot about Miracleman’s powers (as Winter points out, Mike/Miracleman himself is surprisingly incurious about his own powers). Liz correctly guesses that he has a force field (whereas Miracleman incorrectly first thinks he has “tough skin” and Liz points out why this is absurd). She correctly guesses that the basis of his strength is his mind, and guesses not only that Miracleman’s body is separate from Mike’s but even manages to deduce the existence of underspace/infra-space! But as the story progresses, she goes through the rather unfortunate damsel in distress phase, then basically ceases to be an independent character at all as Winter manipulates her. I do like the closure and strength Moore gives her in that short final scene (Moore essentially allows her to voice the moral of the entire Olympus storyline), but it was sad to see her go from a fully fleshed-out character to almost a non-entity. Given that she was basically the main supporting character at the start of the strip, I would have liked to see her continue as a subplot in Gaiman’s run (just as Johnny Bates would periodically pop up for a page in Moore’s installments here and there), tracking her perspective on MM’s brave new world. There’s no reason she had to disappear from the story entirely just because she is no longer with Miracleman.
The only flaw in all of John Totleben’s incredible art for this series: during Mike’s “suicide,” he clearly has the two missing fingers that were bitten off by Miracledog (a shot of him climbing the mountain unfortunately puts his right hand, and the fingers at issue, into the very clear foreground).
As brilliant as “Nemesis” is, I do have some issues with it: it’s annoying, from both a plot and a character standpoint, that Phon Mooda disappears from the London battle without any explanation. One also has to wonder why one of the Warpsmiths doesn’t warp Kid Miracleman into the sun or some equally deadly environment—or at least to some star system far from civilization where he couldn’t do damage. Miracleman makes the (frankly silly) excuse that Aza Chorn keeps warping KM within London because he doesn’t know many locations on Earth, but in the Warpsmith solo stories, they seem to have the ability to warp across large distances of the universe in a moment. There doesn’t seem to be any basis for their warping being restricted to Earth. Finally—and I can’t take credit for this one, I saw it in a blog post comment—why wouldn’t Miracleman have tried yelling “Abraxas” to turn KM back to Johnny Bates? It’s possible that Gargunza gave each subject a different failsafe word, of course, but it would certainly be worth at least trying.
Based on what I’ve read online, this will probably also be an unpopular opinion, but...I’m fine with the censorship of the N-word. I hate to call out any particular person, but there was a message board post I read that seems to me to be emblematic of the sentiment I’ve seen expressed, and I present it in that spirit: “If I've opened a polybag to read a story about a naked black man imagining himself running naked through a Carribean mythological nightmare, or a massacred London full of assorted, dismembered body parts, I think I can handle the N-word.” I think the missing part of this equation is that, for a certain group of people, that particular word has a long, hurtful history, and can be highly triggering. They likely aren’t expecting to encounter it in a book like this, which doesn’t deal with race in any meaningful way, and quite frankly, I don’t think the word adds anything artistically. The Evelyn Cream monologues, with the weird fixation about voodoo and the jungle, are rather problematic to begin with IMO, and I don’t know that Kid Miracleman using a racial slur really contributes much of value to the story to justify using the term (I think we understand he’s evil by this point without using such potentially hurtful language). In contrast, I think the use of the word in Watchmen is much stronger from an artistic standpoint, as it depicts a poor black man using it ingratiatingly as a term of solidarity to a wealthy black man who believes he has moved beyond such labels. In Watchmen, it feels both natural and necessary to the moment/character arc, and therefore printing the word itself adds to the power of its use. In Miracleman, in both instances, it feels like a young Moore is trying to do something (with good intentions, I’m sure) that doesn’t really gel to justify the use of such divisive language, and so I’m fine with the censorship. (Now, we can discuss the hypocrisy of Marvel leaving the equally misguided use of the N-word uncensored in reprints of Chris Claremont’s run on X-Men, but that doesn’t mean they were wrong to censor it on Miracleman—just that they have an inconsistent editorial standard.) That being said, I am a tad upset that “f----t” (censorship my own) was changed to “fairy” in “Notes from the Underground.” Again, for me, it comes down to balancing how hurtful the word is against the value to the story. In this case, Gargunza going for the jugular in attacking Warhol’s sexuality was the entire emotional turning-point of the story (contrasting this with, say, Kid Miracleman calling Huey Moon the N-word when the two have no history whatsoever and there is no emotional resonance). Changing this to Gargunza calling him a “fairy” softens the blow so much, and really removes a lot of the punch. Context matters, and I feel that this was a moment that did justify using the hurtful language because it made a point, although I’m assuming Gaiman approved the change.
That scene of Miracleman and Miraclewoman having sex in the sky is horrifying, in terms of them just casually throwing their clothes off. She drops her stiletto shoes down over London! Those could kill someone!
Any theories on why Miracledog becomes much much smaller when Miracleman retrieves him from underspace to become “Fenris”? It seems to be the same body story-wise.
Any thoughts on why Miracleman in particular seems to become the figurehead Zeus/Abrahamic God figure in the pantheon? It seems Miraclewoman is equally qualified if not moreso (same for Winter, for that matter, although she probably can’t be bothered with petty human concerns). It seems a little sexist that she’s relegated to the role of “goddess of love” when she’s generally presented as more intelligent, sensitive, resourceful, and competent than MM.
I wonder, why did Buckingham revert to the older Garry Leach costume design for Miracleman, when Moore made the “evolving uniform” thing a plot point going all the way back to Warrior #4 (and Gaiman/Buckingham themselves eventually referenced this in #24 when they drop the “MM” logo altogether)? Did he just stylistically prefer the original Leach design, I guess? Bucky does finally draw the “evolved” version of the Olympus-era costume in #24 during the flashback to “Nemesis,” but even there he gets it wrong—MM correctly has the 1985-era collar (as seen in “The Yesterday Gambit” and “Nemesis”), but he also appears to have the more jagged “MM” chest logo he didn’t develop until ca. 1987.
Not sure how many people catch this, but in “Notes from the Underground,” Warhol references Divine hanging out with “Glenn.” This presumably references Divine’s “real” name, Glenn Milstead. Presumably, Mors cloned two bodies, in a neat parallel to Miracleman/Mike Moran and co.’s dual identities/bodies.
Any thoughts on the oblique Spaceman predictions in “Carnival” and “When Titans Clash!”? The one in “Carnival” keeps talking about “old friends from the future,” which seems not to bode well for what Young Miracleman’s return portends.
Are all the background characters in “Carnival” cameos/references, or are some just fun designs? I spotted someone dressed as a “rainbow ghost” (a Qys form Winter takes in “Winter’s Tale”), a guy dressed as Captain Britain, and of course, guys dressed as Wonder Woman, Spiderman, and Golden Age Flash. I’m assuming the big white thing with a lower-case “a” on its chest (in the same panel as the rainbow ghost) is a reference to something, but I’m having trouble placing it.
What’s the deal with the clock gears motif on all Dave McKean’s covers for The Golden Age? It reminds me of Dr. Manhattan, but it doesn’t seem to really have anything to do with The Golden Age storyline.
I found the final pages of the Apocrypha issues really funny, where they basically read as Gaiman (pretty accurately) criticizing what the other writers got wrong about Miracleman. I doubt that he meant it in a cruel way (by all accounts, he loved the idea of letting other writers play in his sandbox writing “imaginary” stories), but it does come across as a bit bitchy in a charming way. (I also have to quickly gripe that Fred Schiller’s story, “A Bright and Sunny Day,” makes no sense. The Apocrypha stories are generally silly and easy to ignore, but this one really gave me a headache. KM is able to speed up to the professor’s pace, but then when he leaves the professor for twelve minutes the professor inexplicably ages twelve years, and then KM spends 57 years with him but inexplicably doesn’t age even though the professor does?)
Gaiman generally does an excellent job of keeping track of Moore’s continuity and obviously has an encyclopedic of the earlier stories/issues. However, one weird thing I noticed. In the framing story for Apocrypha #1, Miracleman mocks the “Scrapbook” story because Miraclewoman calls MM “Mike” in the story—the implication being that he and MW no longer use their “human” names. However, in “Hermes,” Miraclewoman sort of gently teases MM for calling her “Miraclewoman,” and suggests it would be easier if he called her Avril. For the rest of Olympus, up to and including the “present day” 1987 stuff, they call each other “Mike” and “Avril.” It seems odd that Gaiman inexplicably flipped this.
Another small, nitpicky point: The comic books we see in the framing sequence for Apocrypha #3 have prices on the cover, and the envelope they were sent in has postage. This seems to be a continuity error, since Miracleman banished money very soon after making himself known to the public.
I know Bucky redid all the background paintings for the sky/fireworks display at the end of “Carnival,” leading to the final page being totally different between the Eclipse printing and the Marvel editions. He also almost completely redrew the bulk of “Retrieval,” which he had expressed unhappiness with in George Khoury’s book. He has also said that he was in the process of completely redrawing #23, #24 and the unpublished #25 for Marvel, to bring them in line with the new art style he has developed for The Silver Age (I’m very excited for this…the original #23 and #24 are kind of stiff and really not Bucky’s best work, and he has really grown as an artist since). I’m generally not a fan of this kind of revisionism (George Lucas removing Sebastian Shaw’s eyebrows, etc.), but for some reason I don’t so much mind Bucky improving on his old stuff (the new “fire” display is so much more beautiful). My question is, did Bucky (or any other artist) redraw any other old material, aside from the examples I already mentioned?
I have to imagine that the redrawn #23 will also remove all references to destroying the World Trade Center. The opening of #23 is rather odd, insofar as it’s the exact thing Moore was fighting against in “Nemesis” (big dumb superhero battle with massive property damage and no human casualties). I at first assumed NYC was now uninhabited (since Miracleman says in Olympus that there are no more cities), and had been converted into a superhero playground. But we then see in the very next issue that NYC is still very much populated. So is what we see in #23 a dummy version constructed as a training ground, or what?
The Kay we meet in The Silver Age (who wants to have sex with everyone) is presumably the same Kay Mist mentions in “Winter’s Tale” (she says Kay is the only Miraclebaby besides Winter who can warp, because she is “glonzo”).
Any thoughts on the wallpaper design in #24? It pops up throughout the issue, also appearing on both Jordan’s vest and the Spaceman’s clothes. Strange little motif.
What is the general consensus on whether or not Young Miracleman is actually in love with Miracleman? Is he closeted and in denial, or is Miraclewoman wrong? Or (given that she’s generally portrayed as nigh-infallible, especially when it comes to matters of the heart) is it possible that she deliberately lied to Miracleman for some reason? The end of that issue is rather ominous. Why does Miracleman tell her they need to talk? Note that he calls her “Avril” here, for the only time in the Gaiman issues, like a person calling their spouse by their full given name when angry.
Dez Skinn generally comes across as a slippery bloke with a selective memory, but his description of Grant Morrison’s story in George Khoury’s Kimota! is particularly infuriating: “a discussion between Kid Marvelman and a Catholic priest, and it was quite fascinating because Kid Marvelman argued a very good case against organized religion. Nobody was flying, no beams from anybody’s eyes, but a bloody clever script…” I like some of Morrison’s stuff and I’d been excited to get to that story for awhile based off of Skinn’s description. Imagine my disappointment when the story was LITERALLY the exact opposite of what Skinn described! What the hell, Dez.
A few more random thoughts: I also reread V for Vendetta alongside Miracleman, and it was interesting to track some parallels that popped up in the evolution of the two stories. For instance, in Warrior #11, both Marvelman and V conclude their “Book 1” with a story that reveals the source of their powers comes from secret government experiments. Also, this is probably common knowledge, but an interesting piece of trivia: It’s a regular source of debate who might have built the Fate computer in V for Vendetta, with many theorizing it might have been V (I personally don’t subscribe to this). The only truly definitive answer is in Moore’s “Quality Universe” timeline, which reveals that Gargunza in fact built it! I’m assuming Moore scrapped this “head canon” as the V story progressed (for one, the computer in the finished story seems to have been built much later than the 1960s), but fun piece of trivia.
Does anyone have any idea what is happening in the Miracleman: Triumphant pages that cropped up online? I know the story involved Miracleman going to see a fortune teller, and it appears from the illustrations (sadly with no dialogue written in) that this gimmick rather unsurprisingly becomes a framing story for something (an imaginary tale? The future?). The main story seems to show a dark-haired woman (Liz?) yelling at Miraclewoman, Gargunza and the Warhols (!) seemingly leading some sort of uprising in Olympus along with Miracledog (and possibly aligned with Winter and the Miraclebabies?), and maybe-Liz knocking Gargunza unconscious with one of the Warhols’ oversized Campbell’s soup cans (groan). The art by Mike Deodato is slick, nothing incredible but certainly easy on the eyes; the credited writer Fred Burke seems to have done very little in the industry (he edited the Total Eclipse crossover, which doesn’t bode well). Overall, I hate to pass judgment without being able to read the full thing, but what is available looks pretty dumb, and it’s probably for the best that this never saw the light of day.

Labyrinthos, labrys, Labraunda: an archaeological view

https://preview.redd.it/o206hc9qzkz51.png?width=739&format=png&auto=webp&s=b69e2390434286028a26d1c3beaa76c2c9a39cab
The island of Crete and Caria on the coasts of Asia Minor are two of the territories in which a pre-Indo-European radical (present from Greece, to Cyprus, to Armenia) leads to parallel and different but deeply linked stories one to the other.
The radical da / la is the basis of the concept of cut stone, cut in the rock, quarry, mine, cave, passageway, cave, mountain, etc .: both Labyrinth and Labraunda derive from it.
But, depending on whether the Labyrinth is examined in relation to the excavations of Knossos, oriental archeology or the etymology of the word, the answers to the question it poses are not unique.
The Labyrinth would be the palace of the ax since in the more Hellenized environment of Asia Minor, the two-tailed is called labrys and the term would have a strictly topographical meaning.
Or it would be the palace of divinity. The lady of the labyrinth dominates over a place called Labyrinth which has been consecrated to her since the most remote times regardless of the double ax. This place is made up of caves in which a more recent tradition places the Minotaur. Theseus kills the monster and thereby clears the labyrinth where it lives.
In fact, the testimonies on the myth become more precise and abundant as the details of the saga fixate in the collective imagination.
The concept of the Labyrinth as an inextricable path is by Plato, only a late source (Callimachus) places the killing of the Minotaur in it, the Labyrinth in its architectural meaning of a fully constructed building appears in Roman times (Pliny and Strabo). Homer and Hesiod do not know him. Herodotus visits the palace-tomb of a Pharaoh of the XII dynasty (Amenemath III) in Egypt, describes it as an inextricable maze for anyone without a guide and calls it Labyrinth, but does not mention that there was one in Crete.

https://preview.redd.it/xiqgf1yl0lz51.png?width=624&format=png&auto=webp&s=d078e39623dd9aa5e70a2b287820b02dd8d10fa1
The knowledge of the glories of the Cretan civilization thanks to the discoveries of Evans (1901) at Knossos has fueled some of the many hypotheses that have been mentioned.
Then, the deciphering of Linear B script by Ventris led to recognize the same word in da-po-ri-to-jo and in labyrinthos and on a tablet of Knossos it was read "(I offer) a jar of honey to all the gods and a jar of honey to the lady of the labyrinth ”.

https://preview.redd.it/3ywwzbxt0lz51.png?width=487&format=png&auto=webp&s=09128ed708ec75375f46bcf761b628b6c1672c83
Labyrinth does not derive from labrys (double ax), also finding its root in da / la, yet this plays an important role in the figurative expressions of the Minoan-Mycenaean world. What did it symbolize?
On a gold seal-ring from Mycenae it is placed at the top, next to the goddess with 3 poppies in her hand who sits under the sacred tree.
The double axes on the painted sarcophagus of Hagia Triada are yellow, gold or polished bronze. They rise above columns and birds, also symbols of divinity, place on them. They have double blades, like those of the ring. A libation ceremony takes place in front of the columns and double axes, which will also accompany the sacrifice of the calf.

https://preview.redd.it/a84ypx802lz51.png?width=960&format=png&auto=webp&s=c61f7c13905d237a65aa2b2f2bd947da20fe44b5
In both cases, the double ax recognizes the symbol of the potnia theron, the goddess whose power extends over the world of the living and the dead. The double ax represents the divine force (chthonic or celestial) and is present in the crypts, on pillars, alongside female idols and chthonous snakes, in funeral ceremonies, etc. However, for Cretans and Mycenaeans, the double ax is the pelekus, not the labrys.

https://preview.redd.it/wwqd5n8a2lz51.png?width=880&format=png&auto=webp&s=0747a813694c48fed771570d9ffcc1269e7972b2
Labrys, according to Plutarch, is a lydio-cario name. What meaning will be given to it, in addition to considering it the relic of a matriarchal society as the story that traces it back to Herakles' Amazonomachy wants?
If in the sanctuary of Labraunda Zeus does not carry the scepter or the lightning but the double ax, this derives from the fact that the labrys (so called by the Lydi), taken by Herakles to the queen of the Amazons and given by him to Omphale as a royal insignia, passes then from Gyges to Arselis who takes her to Mylasa with other spoils of war. Arselis makes a statue of Zeus and puts the labrys in his hand. The god was called Labrandeus, and Labraunda his venerated sanctuary located far from the capital, on the slopes of Latmos, where the cave paintings dating back to the Middle Chalcolithic are extraordinary.
Labraunda in Caria would therefore designate the place where the labrys, symbol of royalty, resides / dwells. Unlike what happens in the female world of Crete, however, the god of Labraunda is an indigenous Zeus who descends from the Hittite Tarhunt, "the conqueror".

https://preview.redd.it/bdlhueqq2lz51.png?width=280&format=png&auto=webp&s=73315daf34595ee583afc99fd304c1dc7983affb
The coins of Pixodaros (340-334) represent him humanized according to Hellenistic canons: he wears a long chiton and a draped himation, advances with the labrys on his right shoulder and the spear held with the tip down in the left.
Conversely, a later bronze and coins give us an image much closer to the primitive xoanon: the god has double axes, spear, polos, a pectoral with adventitious organs arranged in a triangle above the robe, the trunk and legs wrapped in a sheath held tight by a sort of net.
Even the Artemis ephesia carries the same bib, much more emphasized. If it were a question of false breasts, the female attribute given to a male god, however rare and late, would confirm its overlap with an older female deity.

https://preview.redd.it/r6wb01zm3lz51.png?width=402&format=png&auto=webp&s=268a3b48ac332f5a88e8cbec1cec478f48ce0c91
Even the best known image of the powerful Artemis of Ephesus is late.
An extremely significant fact due to the difference between the ideas we have of the Greek statuary of the golden period and the reality of the devout imagerie, its extraordinary characteristics concern the liturgical vestment superimposed on the robe, the edge of which touches the feet of the figure.
The most impressive and ambiguous thing is in the breastplate: false breasts and polymastia? Goatskin bags? Bovine testicles fixed above the statue after animal sacrifice? Bee eggs?
The interpretations vary, while reaffirming the archaic concept according to which the symbols scattered on the vestment, on the neck, on the headdress express and renew the power of the goddess in a transfer that brings them back to nature.
In Greece Artemis is never accompanied by a paredro and is a chaste virgin, but the myth of Actaeon alludes to one of the sinister aspects of the goddess, connected to her first quality as a giver of death and therefore as a savior from death, perhaps the trait that it better justifies its assimilation to Ephesia, a potnia theron that dominates nature and animals. Is it the Phrygian Cybele? Another female deity from the Western Semitic area? Is she the Minoan goddess of fertility?
If the singular attribute present on the Ephesia and on the bronze statue of Zeus Labrandeus implies the superposition of the latter on a primordial goddess, the Cretan double ax and the double Carian ax symbolize the power of divinity in different ways and eloquently testify to the kinship between Cari and Cretans.
In Caria the labrys is not the instrument of sacrifice (it is rare, in fact, that the divinity is represented with the instrument of sacrifice), but rather the ancient emblem of the god of the sky who hurls the thunderbolt: the Hittite deity of the sky carried it and one of his descendants such as Iuppiter Dolichenus brings it.
In Crete, the double ax does not appear in the hands of the male god but accompanies the goddess. In Asia Minor and in the neighboring territories it is instead an almost constant attribute of Zeus, which, moreover, is closely related to the Zeus of Crete: it is now born in Crete, now in Caria, as well as another tradition makes the Cretan Curetis pass into Caria with the names of Labraundos, Panamaros, Spalaxos which correspond to the 3 great religious centers of the region (Mylasa, Stratonicea, Aphrodisias).
By changing the cult of the Mother Earth, replaced by that of Zeus and other divinities, the place of worship is also changed and only memory remains of the Labyrinth. One might think that the Labyrinth was a sacred place to which a tribute was brought. The most ancient myth makes it an antro, a cave dug to conceal a monster, a dark cavern, so much so that, according to traditions, Theseus needs the luminous crown and Ariadne's thread to enter it. Eventually it becomes the difficult path par excellence and this idea overwhelms any other.

Map used: Malden

Situation:

The CSAT Griffin Regiment has not seen glory the last few years. On Altis, the Griffin Regiment failed to defend the East Wind Device and lost it to NATO CTRG operatives. A second prototype of TEWD was also stolen from the Chinese CSAT Branch "Dragon". Vahid Namdar, disbanded the original Griffin Regiment and reformed it as "Phoenix" Regiment. And to show to the CSAT chairman that we are worthy to rise from the ashes, we will conquer Malden.
Malden Malden is a small fishers island in the Ionian Sea and used to be a NATO stronghold for QRF operations in southern Europe or North Africa. Around 2025, the Malden President raised issues with having a strong NATO presence on the island and NATO was to be moved elsewhere. As compensation, NATO was allowed to have a small military base on the south-east island for training purposes.
With NATO no longer present on the island, drugs trade became rampant on the island, being a gateway for import from Africa to Europe. Officially, the Malden Armed Forces fight the local cartel, but behind the scenes, they provide the cartel with weapons, security and information. Some believe the Malden president is a mere puppet for the cartel.
Regardless of the situation on Malden, the island is still of great military strategic value, and CSAT wants control of it. Phoenix regiment is tasked with taking the island.

Map: Malden

Briefing:

Situation

It is July 1965, America is focused on Vietnam, as is most of the world. In the East Atlantic the tiny island nation of Malden has sent a letter to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization asking for two things, membership in NATO and assisting in the elimination of a violent Communist led rebellion that has taken over half of the island. With this plea for help, America has asked other NATO countries for them to directly intervene as the Americans have a shared air force base with the Malden Air Force, and an army base on the south east island.
Just as the Canadians answered the call, so did the Dutch sending their Korps Marinier to help the people of Malden. Two days after 2PPCLI assaulted across the center of Malden the Dutch Marines are conducting an amphibious invasion in the flank of the Soviet positions with plans to move through the enemy and clear the remainder of Malden.

Enemy Forces

The Canadians were surprised by the presence of Soviet infantry, armor, and airborne forces on Malden. Intel shows the Soviets helping to take out the majority of the Malden Military while the Communist Militia secured the people. We expect similar resistance to what the Canadians received, Soviet forces and Communist Militia throughout the southern portion of the island.

Friendly Forces

The Canadians have stopped their attack to secure the north of the island, hunting down communist holdouts. The Nationalist militia was eliminated in this southern region, and those not killed have fled north. There are American forces on the island to the east of the mainland. We are deploying from the HNMLS Amsterdam with either assault dingies or landing craft (COs descretion). The Amsterdam will not be on station for support.

Civil/Terrain considerations

It is believed that all civilians are out of the area, and you are clear on all targets.

Mission

Objective Spanje-Algiers: Clearing this hamlet will secure our rear as we push on and allow follow up teams to land and hunt down holdouts.
Objective West-Indie: We believe we have found the Soviet Airborne Base of Operation on Malden, you are to clear it out. Any helicopter not destroyed will be destroyed later.
Objective Seneffe: The port town of La Riviere is home to enemies and securing this town will cut off enemy retreat in the west and will allow supplies to be brought in. You only need to clear the Harbour Office and the Mayors House as those will be built up as strongpoints. The remainder will be cleared by follow up units.
Objective Kirkduin-Doggersbank: The old palace of the Malden President has been taken over by the Soviet Army and Communist Leadership. Destroying any forces here will stop the Communists from taking over the country.
Objective Bali-Atjeh: The town of Cancon is the central escape route for Soviet forces retreating. Capture the towns strongpoints, the Mayor's house and Harbour office will stop the Communists in the region, allowing follow up units to clear it.
Objective Chatham: The central town of Chapoi is one of the last holdouts of the Soviets, capturing the Town Office and Storage Office strongholds will allow follow up units to clear the town.
Objective Rotterdam: We have found a Soviet motorcade, with armoured vehicles. Clearing it out will weaken the enemy control of the region. Any vehicle not destroyed will be destroyed later.
Objective Javazee: The eastern town of Le Port is the location of the final Communist holdout. Clearing the Town Office should weaken the enemy enough for follow up units to clear the town.
Objective Nieuw-Guinea: The eastern military harbour is the Soviet final escape. Capturing this port will stop any holdouts from taking an obvious exit, making them easier for follow up units to find.

Assets

You have access to Trucks, Jeeps, Mortars, and a small number of Huey and Chinook Helicopters.

Administration/Logistics

The Huey crew will be running reinsertion and resupply runs, as well as provide light air support (Door Guns) and recon from above.
If you respawn proceed to the radio on the table to inform the pilots that you need a pickup, by interacting with it. If you join late you will have to either grab a radio and call for a pickup at the Destroyer or respawn and activate the radio there.
Just after the beach landing you will be able to regroup with a section of Canadians with trucks, ammo, and mortars. These will allow you to be faster and more mobile.

Due to the limits of technology only Command team, Section Leaders and Section 2iCs will have radios.

If you are missing kit:

There are 2 Limited Arsenal boxes near (re)spawn. One is at the front end of the HNLMS Amsterdam's Hanger. The second is just outside of the wall to the right from respawn. Only use these if you are missing kit, as mentioned above only Command Roles will have Radios.

Slotting:

Make sure your slotting comment has these vital pieces of information:
in-game name, discord name, role
CO, squad leaders and special roles (all roles in bold letters) should join the teamspeak 30 minutes before the event starts for planning the mission.
If this is your first event with us we would also like to ask you to join 30 minutes early for a quick introduction to MC.
ROLES
The FOO will pass this info onto the Mortar Team by grid coordinates.
X-Ray: The Helicopter will serve as logistics, light air support via the door guns, and recon for the platoon.
Each Gunner in Mike has a piece of the mortar, for the gun to be effective during the beach assault the team will have to be full. Two additional mortars and trucks will be available at the Canadian Line.
Assistant Autorifleman: AARs have tripods for the AR's FN MAG MMGs. These are optional and can be dropped.

Slots

This list is not guaranteed to be up to date! Do a quick look through the comments to make sure your slot hasn't already been claimed.
You need to have played at least three events with us for all leadership and special roles like pilots or vehicle crew.

2020.11.15 22:43 salirj108 Thoughts and reactions to the Lightning Thief as a film, not an adaptation (Part 2)

Part 1 If you didn't see it, theres the link to Part 1. This is the 21st point to the 39th, although it set the numbers back to 1.
  1. The Hades scene was generally weird - he wasn't a great villain, the reactions were much less panicked than one would expect and his voice was very emotionless.
  2. 'Bring me the bolt' - URGHHHHHH. Why does everyone think he has the bolt? Nobody has actually come up with a reason yet and i think it should be really clear to both Ms Dobbs and Hades that Percy is just a noob to the existence of Greek Mythology, and could never have pulled off a lightning-bolt heist.
  3. Everytime I hear Chiron's plan, it sounds worse and worse. Train for a couple days, go to Olympus, convince Zeus you're innocent. That's it. How did they intend to convince Zeus? If he is going to start a war because he thinks the most likely person to steal the bolt is Percy, he's clearly not reasonable enough to just believe Percy at his word. What proof did they have that Percy didn't do it? Chiron's plan to save Percy's mum isn't very good either - Hades is clearly pretty unpredictable and dangerous, so how will they get his mum back without the bolt to trade with?
  4. Percy's plan is also pretty shit - I know he's 12, but how did he expect to get to the Underworld by himself? He was also not at all considering his other responsibility to stop a war, although I can imagine the possibility of saving your mum would cause you to lose sight of other things.
  5. Luke's hideout is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. Unrealistic, but still sweet.
  6. They set out a good plot for the film in this scene, which I can say at least gives the film a good backbone - they get a map off of a better equipped friend that will lead them to 3 pearls that they need to get out of the Underworld, then the map will lead them to the underworld where they will try save Percy's mum. This sets up the next hour of film well with a good plot, but still doesn't cover HOW Percy intends to somehow forcefully overpower or sneak past Hades without any intention of actually finding the bolt. However it is SHOCKING that not one of them considered they would need 4 pearls. Also the map is pretty specifically convenient but hey-ho.
  7. Y'all really went into this empty, creepy, derelict looking garden emporium and your first thought was excitement at 'free sodas'? It was a closed freezer - even i could have told you not to get your hopes up, considering the circumstances.
  8. How poor are they that theyre stealing money out of a wishing well? Didnt they think about the fact that they needed money for food and shelter before leaving on this quest? And what motivation would they have to take some coins of a foreign currency and just keep them? For luck?
  9. F*********K that lady grabbing Annabeth is scary.
  10. The 'Uncle Ferdinand - Medusa' connection was cool and scary but you're really telling me that Grover and Annabeth weren't able to guess that the creepy, empty statue shop on the way of their extremely dangerous greek quest belonged to Medusa before this?
  11. The difficulty it takes them to find each other is exactly why splitting up was a stupid idea to begin with. YOU ARE ON A QUEST AND HAVE IT ON GOOD NOTICE THERE ARE LOADS OF MONSTERS AFTER YOU. WHY ARE YOU NOT PREPARING FOR DANGER?
  12. Medusa is a much better villain than Hades was so far.
  13. Why does Annabeth seem a bit disappointing so far? Not only was she unable to deduce that this was Medusa's lair, she also completely panicked and didnt do anything to find Percy and Grover when that lady grabbed her and told her of the danger. Then she lets Medusa come right up to her and touch her face. Shouldnt she have pulled out a weapon before she got even close to her? Also now that she has worked out it's Medusa, why does she only say 'dont look' when she takes off the headwear? She really should have had her eyes closed the second she saw her, and should have properly warned the lady not to look as well, although her idiocy in opening her eyes isn't Annabeth's fault.
  14. WOW the ladys hand turning to stone around Annabeth's wrist would have been so shit-scary.
  15. 'Ill take care of her', says Percy, who is meeting a monster of legend and has barely any training with his weapon. By all accounts and purposes he shouldn't have stood a chance.
  16. 'I USED TO DATE YOUR DADDY' lol
  17. Once they're within her grasp, shouldnt it be very easy for her to forcibly open their eyes?
  18. LOL how can Annabeth drive? Also that plan had equal chance of killing Percy as it did of hurting Medusa.
  19. ...So he just sneaked up behind her and she somehow didnt notice. If her whole shtick is looking people in the eyes as opposed to being really good at combat, she REALLY should be more aware of her surroundings. Also lol i love how cocky Percy is with the sword spin he keeps doing.
Lmk what you guys think!
