Honestly this kind of armour seems like it would be effective. Even just a metal box with cardboard in it would create separation from the chassis that could cause shells to detonate early.

It's just a mediocre game in all aspects, with half baked itemization. I also remember being able to max quite a lot of skills, like it was impossible to not become a jack of all trades.


I am fervently unqualified to say anything about cgi but I have a term I like to call natural contrast. Basically it’s the idea that the colour variation of most levels should general adhere strongly to a single colour at a time because most of the light is coming only from one source whose frequency naturally shouldn’t change(unless it’s like exciting a material but even then you don’t need to go that deep with graphics).

When natural contrast is prioritized sets look boring but not visually overloading to the player but when it’s ignored it’s very distracting

They basically remade the Morrowind engine from its precursor without any of Bethesda's original source code. Best of all, it is somehow even more stable and extensible than the original, especially with the shader and script support in recent versions and upcoming dehardcoding of gameplay mechanics as well as support for .bsa and .nif formats of future games.
Btw, if anyone wants a point to get started with OpenMW, there is modding-openmw.com that got various modlists for either quick modding, complete overhaul of the game or simply a better looking vanilla experience.
Also do not forget how they cut down the varieties of Daedra in Skyrim. Not including Scamps and Hungers is a downright criminal offense.

What about screeching at a near-stranger who just confided about a deep trauma?

> to extreme lengths in order to save life of a girl he met, but the game explicitly tells you jobhunting should be his priority.

The point is the tragedy he is trying to resolve exists in his head. Yes, job hunting should be his priority, because he is chasing ghosts.

You made me add and cross out "Explaining YIIK" on my bucket list. Fuck you.


>The point is the tragedy he is trying to resolve exists in his head. Yes, job hunting should be his priority, because he is chasing ghosts.
I understand that is what the game was trying to say, but it decided that the narrative stand-in for Alex being a self-absorbed asshole should be a selfless act. That just does not work. At the end, Alex does not change in any way, you just keep going as you did the whole game.


Oh yes, I agree that the narration is just awful. My bad.


>could've been perceived a lot better if it weren't for it having the most baffling gameplay/narrative decisions I've seen in an indie rpg.
I kinda want to play the latest version which gets rid of the insanely long monologues and simplifies the combat. Also there's an upcoming YIIK game. I don't know how are they financing this.


These both are kinda the fault of the tolkein state being really meager with their licenses. it's obvious that amazon wanted to adapt the silmarillion, yet they only managed to get the ok to adapt a shitty LotR prequel. and nobody seriously sets out to make a game about an impotent, mentally broken little goblin unless the tolkein estate only allows you to use gollum for your upcoming officially licensed LotR game.

What's even the point? I get porky wants to maximize the hecking profits but they're not making a single cent off the 3DS anymore. I doubt there's a significant amount of people who own a 3DS but don't want to get a Switch.

I've seen people on twitter try and damage control this by going "Well Nintendo didn't ACTUALLY send a DMCA. Valve just took it off the store because they asked Nintendo and they said they would DMCA it!" At least you can just got to Dolphin's website and download it directly.


I mean TBH this is the most open and shut case ever, this isn't anywhere near as bad as when Nintendo sues people that create fan games and so on.


Or the other case where Nintendo Sued a Guy forcing him to pay 30% of his paycheck to Nintendo for the Rest of his life.

This has already happened many times, it will get fixed in due time.

There are R4 equivalents for the 3ds, you don't need CFW to do piracy. CFW is a better option but not the only one.

The Lannisters are more obviously shitheads, while the Starks are more hypocritical


The problem isn't that Dany is progressive and diverse, it's that she's a liberal who doesn't care for realpolitik and actually wielding power. She moves on to the next place before things get challenging. Yeah, she goes and topples slave societies, but she doesn't replace them with anything, meaning that eventually (and probably not long) things will mostly go back how they were.


Catelyn's a good mom; cares about her kids and just wants to see everyone safe. Only thing you can really get mad about is hating on Jon but that's understandable given the time period.

Robb's a kid who just wants to avenge his father and see his sisters safely back home and got way in over his head.

Ned mistakenly believed Cersei to be smarter than she actually was and tried to spare her and her kids from being collateral damage.

It's abundantly clear that the Starks literally do nothing wrong and just get repeatedly betrayed and destroyed due to their enemies' plot armor and Martin wanting them to suffer. If you have any other reading then you're just seething.


She replaced them with anarchy; the highest and most progressive stage of society.

The ur-reactionary film

From time to time you get these right wing movies such as 300 and Conan the Barbarian which I call "reactionary films", i.e. any movie which is based on some hypermasculine white guy beating back the androgyne, ethnic forces of evil. Conan the Barbarian (1982) is the perfect example of this, the ur-reactionary movie

TLDR: Conan the barbarian (1982 movies) is a 1980s right wing movie, part of the Reagan turn/backlash against the 60s/70s. The witch he encounters and has sex with early through the movie is supposed to represent the evils of "free love", she literally turns into a ghost demon as she orgasms. The whole part where the girls father, the king asks Conan to get his daughter back from Thulsa Doom who is (probably) sexing his daughter. The cultists of Thulsa doom are supposed to be an analogue for hippie-commune 1960s people who tell Conan to "go back to the land" and have flower power shit. Next there's there's the gay snake-priest that tries to seduce Conan but Conan beats him up. The Villain of the movie is an ultra masculine deep voice black man (James Earl Jones as "Thulsa Doom") who has hypnotized a cult full of nubile dancing white girls into a sexualized stupor, sort of combining 1970s anti cult shit with anti hippie stuff. At the end the hippies put out their new age candles and shit and leave, and the girls go back to their fathers. All delivered by an ultramasculine white man (Arnie) to defeat and buckbreak black hypermasculinity (James Earl Jones). Essentially its the artistic reaction to undo the 1960s/70s and everything about it including sexuality, race, etc.

Long Version:

I: Introduction

Conan the Barbarian is a 1982 epic sword and sorcery film directed by John Milius and written by him and Oliver Stone. Based on Robert E. Howard‘s Conan, the film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role and James Earl Jones, with Sandahl Bergman, Gerry Lopez, Max von Sydow, Mako, Sven-Ole Thorsen, and Ben Davidson.

The film gave Schwarzenegger worldwide recognition, and in the years since its release, it became a cult film, making a lot more money on home video. It spawned a sequel, Conan the Destroyer, in 1984, and a reboot was made in 2011.

A link to quotes from the film can be found here.

>Tolkein was literally an antiracist
that isn't true though. he was a racist in the strict sense that he believed that humanity was divided into races, and he definitely believed that the british (and whites) were superior to everyone else. he just didn't wear it on his sleeve because racism in the 20th century existed across a wide spectrum, from rabid outspoken racists to "respectable" ones like tolkein who probably thought outright racism was icky, though there are plenty of statements on record where recognizes race as a category for organizing mankind


In my country we have a weird group of self proclamed romantic nationalist who musterbait over those Conan style comics and art


"Low fantasy" has magic, it's just that the magic is incredibly rare and almost always evil. Magic users, or those attempting to use magic, are almost always evil. The nemesis of the archetypal "barbarian hero" is usually either a sorcerer or a priest.

The Conan movie did have magic in it, but it's only used by Thulsa Doom to turn either himself or objects into snakes because he leads a weird snake religion.


wasn't his sidekick an asian wizard? and also didn't his GF use magic to resurrect him after he was crucified?


>he believed that humanity was divided into races
That's not the definition of being a racist, the evidence of race being near non-existent at a genetic level did not exist in his time. Racism is prejudice based on race, Tolkien was not prejudiced based on race, at least not to any record I could find.
>he definitely believed that the british (and whites) were superior to everyone else
Proof beyond the fact that most everyone at the time in the West believed that their country was better? That's more nationalism than anything else and that's not the same as racism.

>wasn't his sidekick an asian wizard
No, you're conflating the magic monk played by Mako that helps cure him of the venom/poison he is afflicted by, and the warrior who fights alongside him.

is unironically good





For bethesdas first real shooter this actually turned out to be a pretty good game on a such a “dated” engine. Yet things like real time shadowing for objects, actors and items is fully possible, the team did have cinematic camera animations(admittedly for first person but there’s some rare 3rd person ones aswell). They even got a pseudo train by attaching a train to an NPCs head which just makes me ask, how much of the constraints behind this engine really a victim of its age and how much of this was to avoid save bloat and wasting time before release?

They upgraded the graphics and animations I’ll give them that but the physics and ai is cartoonishly bad.

I think the physics will improve from starfield due to flight mechanics and new updates but the ai for me is expected to stay the same ignoring scripted encounters

Honestly that’s just impressive to me. Really shows how much the team for 3 understood their own engine to pull off shit like that

Getting one would be pretty difficult and honestly I don't have the energy to go through the process to do that

>How can you be sure that death is painless? Not who you're replying to. But there's a method in the book "Five Last Acts" by Chris Docker it's pretty certain is painless. It's a method of self-strangulation, constricting the carotid arteries in the neck. The same thing as a judo choke, which judokas often describe as pleasant. Or fetishists do this for pleasure, they occasionally get it wrong and off themselves by accident.
I'm not going to say exactly what the method is, like how to do it. For anyone interested please get hold of the book and give it a proper read. If you fuck up suicide and survive you may end up worse than before, i.e. end up a vegetable . The book has some things on how to avoid this, and a lot of general good advice. One thing it says is having a method planned often gives you the strength to go on. I've found this to be true. I've thought I have nothing to loose, I might as well make a plan to get myself out of the shit I'm in and give it a shot because if doesnt work out I can always kill myself anyway.
>You don't know what death is. You didn't experience it. And once you do there is no turning back. There is no "trial version" of death with money-back guarantee. When you die, it's game over. Even if death is painless and you disappear into nothingness, it is still incredibly pointless. I see no point in death unless there's no other choice.
Ultimately, there's no choice. You're going to die anyway at some point, we all are. It's a matter of being able to choose when. People are able to tolerate different things.For me being homeless, begging, sleeping out in the cold, maybe dying of hypothermia , I couldn't cope with any of that.it's a slow death. And It's all been a possibility lately. I'd rather look back at some things I have wanted to do in life and managed to do, write some letters to my friends to thank them for doing the things they did for me, and exit under conditions of my own choosing. That said, my plan seems to be working. Better than I could of hoped in my fog of depression. So I'm not going to kill myself. Not yet, anyway. Its strange, though, I put up with worse when I was younger, and I would never have thought of killing myself. I think a lot of it is, like I said, a lot of the things I wanted to do I have done. Still more to do though, which IPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>how about you kill yourself and remove your ability to express your opinion?
fuckin cult of the undead
I don't care as much about OPs personal (and very real) pain, as much as I do the system that is causing it for them and many more people
Cope and seethe if you want but moralizing like this does not produce the opportunity to actualize it's own values
Why would your pain matter anyways if nothing matters? What is the point in killing yourself if you have not yet first tried everything to remedy the pain/lacl of fulfillment/reason for wanting to kill yourself?
When I talk to suicidal people here in this very political context now, well I don't think suicide is rational now either, but my interest is rather in this larger political objective at the centre of my values and ego attachments that propel my actions. You can choose to be sad and experience your very genuine and sorrowful and deserving of sympathy sadness. You can choose to be above it all politically, as "post left" types tend to do. I don't care. Your internal life is not my concern. However where possible I will reason with you or recruit you or even influence your behaviour in the interests of my political objectives. You think you are a detached individual but you are not. We are all ripples forming on the surface of a pond, and when our waves collide with one another a new movement us formed, eventually it is impossible to seperate these vibrations into singular sources.
I notice a lot with these individualistic nihilist sort of moralizers around these parts and elsewhere that you hedge your whole personality about being against "irrational optimism of goodness of life" or whatever but you fail to see you are moralizers yourselves, of the "nihilist" variety. I notice that you lose your shit completely the second someone is willing to use underhanded tactics to meet "good"/prosocial/altruistic ends. As a bit of a tangent, this is not an original idea, and it is in my understanding encouraged by the ruling class, bourgeoisie, but previously feudal elements as well, hope for the future is closed off, innate sense of justice is mocked, atrocities and stress is bellowed from every newsprint and talking head.

I started being interested in eastern spirituality in general since i started training physical yoga last year. It changed my life i would say, i stopped feeling any physical discomfort caused by sedentary lifestyle and many times at the end practice, laying down on floor in "corpse pose" i felt something approaching a bliss, my mood also seems significantly lifted, i no longer give a fuck, even tho my material situation has not changed much.
This in turn caused me to get interested in eastern philosophy itself, i started reading Yoga Sutras, translation by Swami Satchenada (most popular translation from sanskrit i think, this guy was pretty famous with american hippies back in 60s).
Many of Satchenada commentaries are pretty interesting, they are modern and straight-forward, for example there are explamples including driving cars or going to the mall, there are also fragments that made me ask, is this guy reactionary? Can i reconcile at all my marxist tendencies with my interest in eastern philosophy, or are those things contradictory? All i know there is some one movement that says "actually buddhism and marxism has lot in common", are there more?
Here is the quote i am talking about:

"Suppose some people drive up in a big car, park in front of a huge palatial home and get out. Some other people are standing on the pavement in the hot sun getting tired. How many of those people will be happy? Not many. They will be saying, “See that big car? Those people are sucking the blood of the laborers.” We come across people like that; they are always jealous. When a person gets name, fame or high position, they try to criticize that person. “Oh, don’t you know, that person’s brother is so-and-so. Some strings must have been pulled.” They will never admit that the person might have gone up by his or her own merit. By that jealousy, you will not disturb the other person, but you disturb your own serenity. Those people simply got out of the car and walked into the house, but you are burning up inside. Instead, think, “Oh, such fortunate people. If everyone was like that how happy the world would be. May God bless everybody to have such comfort. I will also get that one day.” Make those people your friends. That response is missed in many cases, not only between individuals but even among nations. When some nation is prospering, the neighboring country is jealous of it and wants to ruin its economy. So we should always have the key of friendlinPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

in what way are contradictions in your belief not a bad thing? Like you say, difference is embedded in reality, the resolution of contradiction is to understand the contradiction as inherent but not problematic from a global perspective. As humans though, we need to pick a side. If there is a contradiction, the only acceptable answer I see is to choose a side. (only when it comes to guides to action, which religion/eastern philosophy and marxism both are (well, arguable for marxism); when it comes to understanding of things obvs contradiction is going to stick around. Within the realm of action and subjectivity, contradiction manifests as conflict where you have to take the position of one side in the contradiction, there's no place for simply accepting both sides of the contradiction (though we don't get to choose our position, we are already placed within the contradictions of that sort, that we duke it out within, so in a way it all comes back around; you have to understand the contradictions in order to place yourself in the world, in order to reject the view of reconciliation or eternal conflict in favor of a particular side))


It doesn't really matter if it's reactionary or not. I am the greatest Yogi in existence, trust me on this one.


I've studied this shit for a while and I may be wrong but despite all the gab about saving beings and bodhisattva vows, everything to these people is immaterial. The fundamental idea in zen buddhism at least is that the world arises from the mind and not the other way around. This can be easily vulgarized into
'perception is reality'. Now while there is a different metaphysics and epistemology at play here versus say Kant or Hegel or other earlier Westerns, it's fundamentally what we call 'idealism'. This is basically incompatible with materialism which insists that the mind arises from the world/nature. My text says 'as mortals, we are ruled by conditions, not by ourselves…while conditions change, the mind [equated to the self, the Buddha] neither waxes nor wanes'. There is a tension here between social conditions we can remake as humans and biological/physical conditions we can't break out of. Depending how you interpret this, it can sound very reactionary or be liberating.


Taoism is the only actually significant eastern philosophy, and there are plenty of authors that reconcile it to both Marxism and Anarchism.


>The fundamental idea in zen buddhism at least is that the world arises from the mind
It's complicated but no. The first rule is that there is no self.

Hip hop of any genre

Punk is more closer to what you describe. But to be honest, hip hop and punk are just two sides of the same coin.

And the fact that hip hop is still stuck in gangster themes and that rock music is till punk tells me that Gen X culture needs an overhaul or replacement.


It was created at first by unemployed post-deindustrialization proles in the Bronx, but starting in the mid-80s it began to transfer over to the anguished, idle petit-bourgeoisie and represent their aspirations and fantasies in an ultra-commodified form

Concrete is more uniform, and adding more mass isn't always a good option.


the point is that you don't need to waste energy on calcinating limestone to make cement. while the CO2 emitted does get reabsorbed eventually, the coal used in calcination adds extra CO2


But still you can't really use masonry for everything, as an example pile foundations would require massive amounts of digging if not for concrete. You should ask an expert about it, like if doing a lot of extra work to avoid burning lime is worth it.


that it a question that is only possible to answer under a global system of planning

I'm so tired of my normie friends sending me shit like "wow look what AI did this time" but whenever I try to send them something that actually explains the functioning behind it, the drawbacks, societal costs, exploitation or whatever the only reaction is "well we can't stop technology"

I hate AI so much now, it is literally cryptoscam 2.0, tell me about it when it actually does something useful (without exporting intellectual labor to underpaid workers and calling it "ai")


Dear colleagues,

I would like to share with you a short example of Common Lisp code that I think demonstrates some of the elegant, efficient, clever and impressive features of this language. The code is a function that computes the factorial of a non-negative integer using tail recursion and a helper function.

(defun factorial (n)
  (labels ((fact (n acc)
             (if (zerop n)
                 (fact (1- n) (* n acc)))))
    (fact n 1)))

The function factorial takes a parameter n and calls a local function fact with n and 1 as arguments. The local function fact is defined using labels, which allows it to refer to itself recursively. The function fact takes two parameters: n and acc. The parameter acc is an accumulator that keeps track of the product of the numbers from n down to 1. The function fact checks if n is zero, in which case it returns the accumulator as the final result. Otherwise, it calls itself recursively with n-1 and n*acc as the new arguments. This way, the function fact does not need to use the call stack to store intermediate results, and can avoid stack overflow errors. This technique is called tail recursion, and it is supported by Common Lisp compilers as an optimization.

The function factorial is an example of how Common Lisp allows us to write concise, expressive and powerful code using features such as local functions, recursion, labels and arithmetic operations. I hope you find this example interesting and inspiring.

Your name



Literally hundreds of people have written blog articles about this exact function.
You shoud ask it when call stack recursion is faster than tail call recursion. A quick search doesn't turn up anything, but i remember reading about it on comp.lang.lisp.

This PMG video is fleshing out the side of the ZA/UM employees who claim the creative leads (Rostov, Kurvitz, Hindpere) were difficult to work with.

This attempt to "both sides" two different arguments (This Company Was Stolen Illegally/Robert Kurvitz Is A Bad Boss Who Needed to Be Fired) have lead to people proclaiming both sides are shitty, and to be sure, Kurvitz definitely comes across as shitty, if not also somewhat sympathetic.

To me anyway, the issue has always been them stealing the company thru shady financial fuckery, not about the moral character of Robert Kurvitz. That is something he needs to work out with his fellow workers, not have that be the opposite side of "These people are financial criminals".

Whether or not we get a DE2 (and I don't think I'd want one given the circumstances), it's not right the dude got his life's work swiped from under him.

How do I actually buy Bitcoin? I'm using Bisq as like the market since apparently it doesn't have all the bullshit and it won't freeze my money, as well as Electrum as my main wallet (of course I don't have anything in it). But there's nowhere for me to pay money into it so I can't actually buy bitcoin and when I try to find out the problem it just tells me ways to get bitcoin to start when all I need is to pay my currency into the machine to get a fraction of a bitcoin to spend, I don't even need it to be super duper anonymous or whatever. It's so frustrating, if you don't know someone who knows this shit it's as obtuse as a rock. I just hope I don't have to go through like robinhood or any of those fuck companies that I have no trust for. Help would be much appreciated.

Okay anon, I'll help you out. Bisq is great but its probably one of the more confusing ways to trade at times due to its privacy. The simplest thing for you to do is to go to any of the big exchanges like Coinbase, Binance or Kraken or whatnot that basically just let you (usually after some small amount of verification) let you use fiat currency - USD, EUR etc. - and just buy crypto, including BTC. Also note the way you pay - bank card, credit card, PayPal etc.. may have different fees. Be wary of this when buying fiat for crypto! Couple of things to keep in mind

DO NOT KEEP YOUR CRYPTO IN THE EXCHANGE"S ACCOUNT PERMANENTLY. This is how people have gotten fucked over. Its okay to keep it there when you're trading or will be, but don't just let it sit in exchanges forever. Its good to keep it in a wallet only YOU control - it doesn't have to be a "full" wallet (aka with a full copy of the blockchain it downloads), it can be a "lite" wallet, so long as you have full control of your keys, account etc.

Next, note that EVERY CRYPTO TRANSMISSION BETWEEN ONE ADDRESS AND ANOTHER RECORDED ON THE BLOCKCHAIN HAS A NETWORK FEE. Some coins will call it something different (ie Etherium call it "gas" ) and when these cryptos started out it was nothing, a tenth of a thousandth of a BTC or whatever. However, as the value of the coins have gone up , proportionally this often gets a little more expensive. Its still not always horrible today and depending on what currency it will vary, but just know that it will cost a small amount of something for the network to process it even if say.. you're sending it from one wallet address you control (or your address at an exchange) to another of "yourself", the "network" fee still needs to be paid. Most clients will tell you this and what the minimum is for "standard" transmission (there's a faster more confirmations thing but don't worry about that) but just keep it in mind.

Anyway, I'll try to help you out. There's a lot of crypto bullshit out there but, if you use it smartly and know what each asset is and can do its not by nature evil or anything. Note that Monero is privacy friendly and one of the better coins (its actually one of the most equitable too updating its algo to keep ASICs from fucking with everyone attempting to mine etc), but isn't held as commonly on major exchanges because of the privacy element. Also be very careful for anything related to "DeFi", "dPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>but you won't find any clear web crypto exchanges selling it anymore.
Waht? Yes there are, loads even


This was in Reference to XMR/Monero not Bitcoin, as I was suggesting it as a privacy coin that the OP might been interested in. They nuked Monero off the Majority of the Clear web crypto exchanges to where you can't even buy or trade in it from what I have seen.

Well Monero Mining is the one that uses the CPU and the different threads on the CPU, but not worth mining with just one CPU, but I get what you are saying ASICS with Solar Panels or clean energy alternatives will the way to go for Mining Bitcoin.


hell yeah dude

my man's going fin-goth mode


First of all, you should want to avoid bitcoin as it is horrible wen it comes to privacy. Every transaction is public and viewable by everyone, see if you can buy a privacy coin, such as monero instead.

If you want a different way to buy either of them, be it bitcoin or monero, check out localbitcoin and localmonero. You can use many different ways of making transacting with individuals (even cash by mail) and it's even accessible through the darknet.

TLDW: Widespread standardization is "a big part of why China can build a high capacity metro line for similar prices to other countries building tram lines"


The surprising thing to me is that others did not standardize. I would have expected at least the EU to have done so. I guess metros don't get that much of this kind of attention as rail or whatever because they are mostly closed systems.


Im sure other countries standardize to the extent that they can but theres only so much you can do without central planning.

Well the internet froze time in place and collapsed future present and past so everything is just a flat circle now and zoomers can enjoy the most modern hip hop from big x, older music from Rihanna, and 1930s based electro-swing and Mozart all in one setting. There is no linear time anymore as far as culture is concerned thanks to the internet and smartphones

It's BotW with way more actual content. In particular the side quests are much more in line with the Zelda series. The dungeons are lackluster but probably due to casualization.'

It's a plot device. Comparing it to the BFG is silly. It's more like a key (like the rest of the items) for the specific lock of sealing Ganon.

> beating them up it seems to do a lot of Damage
That's how it worked in BotW. It was a mid weapon normally but then mid-high tier specifically when fighting guardians or Ganon.


Yeah I know all the weapons are treated like consumables in these last two Zeldas. Still I feel it's quite hilarious that Zelda charged that shit for thousands of years and it needs to take a break to recharge after a few dozen hits. Make it a boss fight only weapon then, so that it looks less bitchmade.
Other than that I am enjoying the game, played like 40 hours already, while all my BotW attempts ended before 20.


>while all my BotW attempts ended before 20

This is my case as well I only managed to beat one of the Divine beasts, with Link's Fish Fiancé being put to peace with the help of Sidon how was one of my favorites in the game. ToTK I have spent a lot more time playing because it actually feels fleshed out, and you see the active rebuilding of the Hyrule after the Calamity and they are trying to move on from it.

Side quests feel more fleshed out with some puzzle elements for those that are needing of it. While also paying attention to dialogue like the older games to get the sweet rewards that aren't trash. Which made the Exploration more fun and now having access to the sky and underground just made things more interesting.


There are some small details like NPCs reacting in dialogue depending on weather/time of day. Also pretty much every one of them will tell you something useful or give some sort of hint. They did a good job with that.
As far as rewards yes, especially armor is nice to find, but even something like a bomb flower feels nice because you can always put it to good use. And gluing shit together is much cooler than making fucking ice blocks.


Agreed for the most part, I too have made the Crux fiction of the Koraks. Paraded across the lands ending in burning them at the Stake like a Witch using several Pine cones, fire fruits, and lots of wood.
