What did the conquistadors like Cortez and Pizarro armor look like, were they fully covered or?

I read a book and it talked about them taking very good advantage of their armor, but when I see conquistador armor I often see it not being full, like maybe just being a cuirass but no covering on the arms pretty much or lower legs, also not full face helmets often. Is that correct or did they have full body covering?

What kind of clothing/armor did Spanish conquistadors wear while exploring Latin America? (1500s)

I'm curious because I imagine while navigating the amazonian jungles under tropical weather conditions it wouldn't be practical for Spanish explorers to be wearing heavy armor. On the other hand if they didn't wear some sort of protection, weren't they vulnerable to attacks from native tribes? I understand the Spaniard's weapons were much more advanced, but were those weapons enough to ward off natives that could've easily outnumbered them? Or am I mistaken in thinking Spanish forces traveled in small enough numbers to be so easily ambushed? Thanks for reading.

Ramblings on the coloring tool

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I thought to write up some of my thoughts about the fairly new coloring tool in the mini creator.

I have been messing with it a fair bit, the pictures I'm posting are just a few examples of minis I've been playing around with and seen a bit what I could come up with, they are not anything too special though.

This is by no means meant to be complaining about the tool, in fact I am quite happy with it so far, even if there are still improvements to be made I think it is already fairly good at the stage it is even though it is only in the use of the backers, I think if I've understood correctly.

Overall I really like it so far, I'll use some minis as examples that I've made with the tool.

First one, a dwarf:

While I think it mostly looks good there are places where the colors look a bit smudged, e.g the shoulder patterns:

Next the metallic colors, overall I very much like how they look, and glad that there are a lot of both shiny and dull colors

Scales and fur tends to look a bit awkward though, scales a bit less so, mostly I would hazard to guess this is because of the proper selection for the there, might be subjective, but I feel like there is something off about it, but overall at least draconids and lizard folk look OK.

Armor Training in Real Life?

Just wondering, is the concept of training to move in armor a thing in real-life? Any re-enactment people out there?

I've read a few articles and forum posts that indicate medieval/conquistador armor wasn't nearly as difficult to move/sleep in as certain media sources (and editions of D&D) make it out to be, but haven't read anything that suggests an armored fighter wouldn't need significant time/training to acclimate to having to wear armor. Any thoughts?

I lived with Mexicans when I was 19 and did lots of cocaine. I also lived with a 36 year old woman..... and other things.

Taos December2005-Fall 2006

They said Taos was still the wild, wild west, and the shotgun blast through the A in the green Welcom to Taos County, Population 5761 sign let you know it was. Bobo called it La Tierra de la Manana, because what you do today, might as well be done tomorrow, and what you do tomorrow might as well be done next week. No one would know the difference.

The oldest generation still spoke more Spanish than English, and conversations with the locals convinced me they descended from Sancho Panza himself. Maybe in the corner of their mother’s attic, the conquistador armor of some lanky and fictitious Spaniard collected dust as a forgotten family heirloom. Maybe he was on the plains tilting and windmills still.

I never knew I could feel that way about a place. The way I felt about Taos.

Before I ever got lost at the Warren Inn and took my microwave hostage, I spent a month in the back bedroom at Cheo’s recuperating from my time on the streets of San Francisco. I had a rash on my legs, which I mentioned before but I never explained how bad it got. It was a curse from when I beat up that witch and he bit me. At least that was what I supposed.

Pocking and a slight itch started at the hotel when my mom and sister and grandmother came to get me in San Francisco, but by the time I got to New Mexico, the rash robbed me of sleep. It tortured me. It broke my already feeble mind. My legs and ankles visibly swelled, and three different doctors had no answer. What I determined to be a secondary staph infection created lesions on my thighs that broke and wept when I lifted anything heavy. A round of sulfa based antibiotics gave me some relief, but even if the rash wasn’t there to plague my life, there were other things breaking me inside.

The abrupt discontinuation of my daily heroin regimen made me feel everything my body was doing. My bones’ hard surfaces cut into my aching muscles, pulling and twisting every ligament. Instead of a spine with vertebra, I had a stack of wooden Jenga blocks ready to fall. My guts gurgled when I swallowed my saliva. I imagined my brain’s synaptic firings discharged heat through my ears and caused a dull aching in my eyeballs. It was as if life had become an electrically charged fence into which I was slowly being pushed.

My feet shuffled across the floor in the daytime. Articles of clothing I collected from the streets covered

Conquistador, The Black Knight of TALON

"For gold and glory!"

Name: Itzal Guerrero Tapia

Age: 32

Occupation: Enforcer

Affiliation: Guerrero Crime Family, TALON

Base of Operations: Spain

Outfit/Appearance: Conquistador wears a suit of armor that fuses elements of classic conquistador armor (http://m3.i.pbase.com/o2/93/329493/1/145038573.48UbSliw.SegoviaJul12306.jpg) with the body armor worn by TALON mercs in the "Recall" trailer. He wields an advanced crossbow and carries a shortsword with him.

Lore: Itzal was born as the middle of three brothers to a wealthy crime family in Spain. Growing up, Itzal struggled to find his niche in the family, for his parents were very busy and often spent more time fawning over his brothers. He eventually found something his brothers could never upstage him in: violence. Be it vandalism, intimidation, or outright murder, Itzal's violent streak made his true talents come to the forefront. His parents noticed this, and for the first time in his life Itzal got the attention he so craved. They weren't mad; to the contrary, they were actually quite pleased with him as neither of his brothers were ruthless or cunning enough to inherit the family business. Itzal became the syndicate's #1 enforcer in a few years, and ruled the Spanish criminal underworld with an iron fist. Behind Itzal's brutish exterior was a man who, above all, valued strength above all else. He began collecting relics relating to ancient warriors, up to and including organizations active during the Omnic Crisis such as the Crusaders and Overwatch. The wealth and influence of the Guerrero crime family drew the attention of TALON, who saw them as a threat to their ability to operate in Europe. After skirmishes all over Spain, TALON eventually launched a surprise attack on the Guerrero estate, ordering the mercenaries to kill everyone inside. The mercenaries slaughtered Itzal's family right in front of him and destroyed parts of his collection, which sent him into a rage. Grabbing a sword and crossbow, he repaid TALON in kind by killing most of the hit squad and taking several survivors hostage. Itzal then called TALON HQ using the mercenaries' voice communicators, threatening to torture the elusive organization's location out of his prisoners and delivering the intel to the United Nations. In order to keep their information secret, TALON made a deal with Itzal: He would become one of the highest-ranking members of TALON's enforcement division, and have complete acces

Don't ask me why I was there, just please tell me why there was a painting of a blond-bearded dude in like, conquistador armor, riding a horse, surrounded by a bunch of shirtless native Americans holding spears (not adversarial, like he was leading them.) Who was he supposed to be? Jesus? Joseph Smith? What's going on in this painting and why is it significant enough to hang in the hallway of your church?

Ramirez-Conquering defense

"I claim this land in the name of the king!"

Lore-Leader of the spainish resistance against the omnics, he dons his family's conquistador armor, with a few modifications.

Name-Ramirez, Affiliation-Spainish resistance, Base of ops-Madrid

Hp-250 total-150 health-100 armor, Speed-5.5m/s, Hitbox-Doomfist-ish

Role-Defensive Off-tank

Appearance-Conquistador armor, looks technology advanced, shiny, he's in his 20s and has a slight muscular build. He has a shield on his back with the spainish lion crest and has a sword at his waist.

Primary Fire-Holy Fire

A weapon that looks a lot like Zarya's, but resembles a crossbow. Fires projectiles that move just like uncharged(floppy) hanzo arrows, red-white fireballs. 3rps, 25dmg(75dps), medium accuracy, range falloff at 35m for -7dmg(54dps), 24 clip, headshot capable.

Ability One-Conquered Land

Ramirez releases a 15m ~75 degree cone in front of him for 4 seconds that pushes enemies back at a rate of 2.5m/s and deals 25dmg/s to all caught in it, but reduces his speed to 5m/s. Represented by a flag floating over his head. 13sec cooldown (starts when ability is activated)

Ability Two-Bullfighter

Throws a cape with the speed and trajectory of a concussion mine that, upon colliding with an enemy, prevents movement abilities and slows cooldown of said movement abilities by 50% for 2sec. Looks like a red cape with a symbol of a bulls head. ~7sec cooldown

Ultimate-medium fast charge-Spainish Inquisition

To enemies-Nobody expects the Spainish Inquisition! To allies-I shall purge the heretics!

Ramirez drops his 'Holy Fire' and takes out his sword before plunging it into the ground and assuming a praying position with the sword. During this, he gains a 700hp reflector barrier that bounces projectiles off like genji's deflect and is stationary. For 9sec he releases waves of fire every 1.5sec in a circle. Each wave does 125 dmg and reduces dmg of all enemy projectiles that pass through by 30%. Waves travel at 7m/s and go in a 15m radius.

Thanks for getting this far! I am thinking of a passive, so all suggestions are welcome. Remember, no number is set in stone and are subject to change.

[Defense] Waltz - The Saboteur

Hero: Waltz

Real Name: Celso Herrera

Age: 35

Occupation: Thief

Role: Defense

HP: 250

Pros: Push breaker and devastating disabler. He can force enemy teams to separate or can assist in the defense of a position.

Cons: Lacks escape options. No support abilities. Abilities need to be used smartly else it will do nothing. Has no way of dueling individual heroes or countering flankers.

Keywords: Medium ranged, Long Ranged, Team player, Builder, Tunneled, Assistant, Skill Dependent, Awareness Dependent, Projectile Dependent

Abilities

LMB – Shock Crossbow “Careful with the static” Waltz fires his modified crossbow. Has McCree's accuracy but Hanzo's tavel time with a slight delay between firing. If a crossbow hits something that can be damaged, it will send fire two lightning bolts that will automatically hit the nearest available target in a 10 meter radius. The lightning bolts will prioritize low health heroes. One clip is 10 shots.

Shift – Anchor Jammer “All this running is tiring yes?” Waltz will plant a jammer that takes 5 seconds to finish construction. The jammer can be put on the ground or mounted on the wall. After construction, Anchor Jammer will disable all enemy movement abilities (Swift Strike, Combat Roll, Jump Jet, Shadow Step, Sprint, Blink, Concussion Mine – from activation; not planting, Grappling Hook, Boosters, Charge, Jump Pack, Crossfade – will force player to switch to healing aura and make switching to speed aura unavailable, Guardian Angel) in a 20 meter radius. Anchor Jammer’s effect also goes through walls. Anchor Jammer does not disable abilities that use the space bar. Anchor Jammer will emit a sonar pulse, similar to Hanzo’s Sonic Arrow, every 3 seconds, which is visible to both teams. Anchor Jammer is roughly the size of Symmetra’s teleporter. Cooldown is 15 seconds after the Anchor Jammer is destroyed.

E – Barrier Bolt “Disturb us not” Waltz fires a special crossbow bolt. The bolt moves at a slower speed as Symmetra’s Energy Ball, 7 meters per second. However, it emits a circular shield, with the size of roughly 80% of Reinhardt’s Barrier Field. The Barrier Bolt will block all projectiles, save the ones that bypass regular shields, like Symmetra’s Energy Ball and Reinhardt’s Fire Strike. The shield has 800 health. Cooldown is 6 seconds.

Q – Sabotage “Safety protocols disengaged!/ Tu poder te traiciona!” Waltz raises a holographic console and swipes his hand to the left, making the b

The Conquistadors tale. Space marines travel via portal to another world, but arrive decades apart from each other.

First posted here
Cpl. Smythe (That's Sm-EYE-the, not Smith, damnit!) took two long steps forward from the event horizon and took a knee. Rifle at a low ready position, he scanned the immediate area for cover, concealment, threats... anything and everything a U.E. Marine might need to know about a new world. His helmet HUD blinked a small note in the corner. "Breathable atmosphere." Smythe always thought that was a funny message. Any atmosphere was breathable... you just might not survive the experience for long. You could breathe pure methane, right up until you died. Now, a "survivable" atmosphere was something to take note of. Alas, the software coders had not consulted one Corporal Alan Smythe of the United Earth Marine Corp when they programmed the Conquistador Armor Mk 3c. (A name he also had some thoughts on... and was not consulted on.)
Damn... what was taking them so long? Smythe spared a quick glance behind him. The portal shimmered light blue but was otherwise absent of activity. Private Dean was probably crapping his pants and holding the platoon up, Smythe figured. He gazed deep into the night around him, waiting. Strange willowy trees waved gently as a breeze passed by. Two moons gave ample light to see by, though one of them was rather small. The sounds of local wildlife slowly filled the silence the portal's flash of energy had created. "For fucks sake," Smythe half turned to face the portal. "Get over over here!" Not that anyone would hear him. The portal was a one way street. Nothing, no radio waves, light, hard matter or even telepathy (so he was told) would pass "upstream." That said... He should be getting SOMETHING over the radio. They should have at least let him know they were delayed. All he got was static.
It took 15 minutes for him start exploring the clearing around him. It turned out that the portal had dumped him atop clearing, with scattered trees and shrubs, bordered by a sheer seaside cliff to the northeast, forest from the south from the cliff face about 105 yards from the portal and arcing down and around to the west. From there the trees vanished into the horizon. The western arc was dominated by rocky outcropping that gave way to more trees until northern compass point, where the cliff face fell into the sea. It took another two hours before he gave up standing watch and started to clear a Bivouac. It

Recommendations on good 1500's and 1600's era armor for Skyrim?

The only one I found so far is the conquistador armor, but I have a female character and it's male only. I have a team of about five followers, all (thanks to Ghosu's flintlock mod) equipped with early flintlocks. I'd like to find some armor to match. Most of the armor out there is over-decorated pseudo medieval fantasy armor, and that doesn't match well.

How actually outclassed were the Mesoamericans by the Europeans in a military sense?

It's really common for the wars between the Aztec/Inca/Mesoamerican tribes and the Spanish to be shown as the Spanish absolutely outclassing them in warfare. I know that this is largely due to the difference of the Spanish having metal weaponry, guns, and horses, but was the disparity between them really as massive as modern media depicts it? Do we have historical evidence or recorded events that support this? I am asking this entirely from a military perspective, not a civil one. I know that in reality, the fact that many Mesoamerican empires were already in decline, infighting, and plague were as big if not bigger factors in them being destroyed than a military advantage. I am just curious about how well a troop of conquistadors actually faired when they got into an altercation with a group of Aztec warriors.

Legendary Treasure Hunts?

So the legendary bounties were pretty cool, when are we gonna get the collector version of that? Every week or two, Madam Nazar asks for your help recovering a special treasure, and you set off on an adventure that would probably last like an hour or so, they should be satisfying adventures. I also think it would be cool if throughout your adventures there would be a recurring rival collector, a rich adventurer from Saint Denis who wants these artifacts at all costs.

I got a few ideas for different treasures, such as:

The armor of a Spanish conquistador, which you can wear.

The buried treasure of a pirate captain, get a cool pirate outfit and the pirate sword from single player.

A lost fortune in confederate gold, get cool weapon variants for the Springfield rifle and Navy revolver.

A sunken ship full of exotic gems in the Sea of Coronado.

A fortune in stolen riches hidden away by an outlaw and his gang years ago.

A beautiful artifact from an ancient South American civilization.

And finally, for your great final adventure, you and Madam Nazar work together to find a lost fleet of Spanish ships carrying stolen treasures from the conquest of the Incan Empire centuries ago. You and Nazar go on a long adventure around Guarma, the whole time your rival and his hired guns pursuing you.

After you finish these adventures, your reward is an awesome outfit that looks like the one Indiana Jones wears, to show you are a master collector.

Sorry for the long post, what do you think?

The Romans return with a twist

So I had this idea that a legate and his legions some how get massively blown off course and end up in what we know as Mexico today. They then proceed to convince the natives being subjugated by the Aztecs to help them conquer said Aztecs. Pretty much what the Spanish did in our own time line however the key difference being once the Romans take over they make every one they conquered a Roman citizen since said legate was a pragmatist and recognized they weren't going to be able to get back home so might as well recreate home there. So over time you get this interesting society that's a mix of Roman and indigenous American peoples cultures, philosophies and technology. And it seems pretty cool compared to what happened to the indigenous people in our own time line. However the story doesn't begin there. It begins when Hernan Cortez shows up with the conquistadores threatening this societies very existence. And the main characters must now find away to basically destroy Spain and reestablish Roman dominance otherwise be wiped from the annals of history.

So that explained the science elements I desperately need help with is 1 reverse engineering. Because what I determined is said Romans in this world would seek to reverse engineer spanish guns and ships. And that would be essential to the plot in determining if they'll be able to win the war against the Spanish or not. And is it reasonable to believe based on their Geographical location that this would indeed be possible with the natural reasources they'd have. I'm also trying to brain storm the exact level of technology they would have and what the weapons they do have access to would look like. The Roman's themselves brought with them fully armored Legionnaires from the height of the Empire,ballistas,catipults, and horses. Combined with the technology of the Aztecs how exactly would your Amercano Roman Legionnaire look and could they reasonably stand against the Spanish if this era being the 15 hundreds.

The Vietnamese language used in the game, rated by a Vietnamese person. Part 1: Units

Inspired by this post, I have decided to make a table of the Vietnamese words, phrases and such used for units, techs and buildings when the game language is set to Vietnamese. I like to believe this is an unexplored topic on here, but I will give a preemptive apology here if someone has already written a post about it

At first I thought I could cram in everything in one post, then I look back and realise how long I have already gone with just the units 11. So this one will be just that: all the units on the tech tree (so no Xolotl Warriors or Dismounted Konniks... for now)

I recognize that this is a weird and totally-not-gameplay-related topic, but I have a lot of fun with this game and want to express my love for it. So this is how I will do it, since I suck at MP haha

So I hope this will be a fun read, and have a wonderful weekend! Part 2 will come soon, maybe next week, maybe next day, maybe next hour... I haven't decided yet

P.S. Some of y'all might have switched the game language to Vietnamese out of curiousity, and noticed that many instances of <y> in names are <i> in my post. Vietnamese treats <i> and <y> very interchangeably with only a few rules, so I tend to use <i> at all times unless preceded by <qu>, as <quy> sounds closer to <uy> than <qui> to <ui>

Unit Vietnamese term Translation of the Vietnamese term into English My thoughts
Militia Dân binh literal
Man-at-Arms Quân binh literal
Long Swordsman Lính gươm dài literal, "soldier with a long sword" This one broke the Sino-Vietnamese streak of its unit's previous 2 stages, while failing to convey the "swordsman" part like its 2 upgrades below will do. I think using "Kiếm sĩ" (lit. swordsman) would work here given that longswords are not well-known in Vietnam anyway
Two-Handed Swordsman Song thủ kiếm sĩ literal
Champion Kiếm sĩ vô địch literal, "invincible swordsman"
Spearman Lính giáo literal
Pikeman Lính mác literal
Halberdier Lính kích literal
Eagle Scout Lính do thám đại bàng literal This translation is a little too literal IMO, and not able to convey the meaning of "eagle warrior that scouts". It fits with the "Warrior" structure though

I had a dream that lasted two years.

Explanation:

so i want to start this off by saying that i don't mean i had a recurring dream that lasted two years, i mean i went to sleep one day and woke up the next having experienced two years in a different world. it only happened over one night but it still felt like a significant amount of time had past and i was a different person after. i'm not sure how this is possible or what but it did happen. i would also like to note that this happened a while ago so i don't remember everything perfectly. whether you choose to believe it or not isn't my problem i just want to tell the story.

i'm not the best writer so cut me some slack.

please note, these are the highlights, i simply can't put all the information here so if it feels like it moves quickly that's why, it is safe to assume that there is at least a week between each segment if not more. there is more information on each segment, if you want to know more feel free to ask.

another thing, i have been trying to re-enter the dream using lucid dreaming but this has only worked once and for only a minute.

The Actual Story:

I woke up in a rolling field at sunset, the grass was up to my shins and was a golden brown. i was lying face up staring at the sky. once i got up before me i could see the ocean stretching out into the distance with a couple small islands with seagulls and that sort of thing (for a good visual i would look up majula from dark souls 2 to get the vibe). i looked down at myself and i was wearing standard medieval peasant garb, noting out of the ordinary. as it was getting dark i didn't want to spend too much time wandering so i went to go find a place to stay for the night

Upon examining my surroundings i saw that i was at the outskirts of a town. it appeared to be a farming/fishing town at a glance with many windmills. i headed into town passing by the townsfolk who appeared to be closing up their stalls for the night. the only building that seemed open was the tavern so i decided that was the place to go. i headed in and i saw a group of people that stood out from the rest.

i do not remember their real names so i will just come up with stand-ins.

  • Rose, a human adventurer with a large tower shield and spear, she wore cloth and leather armor and had pink hair in sort of a bowl cut kinda thing (that sounds bad but it worked).
  • Siege, a dwarf bard ish kind of. he was a drunk and always had a bad joke for everything. he was short, and had a conquistador helmet and g

Plate armor is the new nippon steel

Plate armor used to be viewed as a clunky, useless thing that required a crane to get up on the horse. Understandably, many have lashed out against this portrayal, and that's good. It's an incredibly effective defense on a Medieval battlefield and could still allow very substantial movement. That being said, I have seen a trend now of people venerating it like people used to venerate katana, and that's definitely pushing it too far in the other direction. Plate armor does in fact have weaknesses associated with it.

First off, yes, plate armor does restrict a person and take extra energy to wear. This is an objective fact. It's less strainful than what one might think, but it's still a strain to wear. Scientific studies have determined that one uses 2x as much energy while wearing plate armor compared to without. Historical record also backs this up, with men in armor having to lift up their visors to catch their breath even mid-duel

>And the Portuguese came very boldly and joyously, seeking to strike his adversary. But he always put aside his blows, without doing anything else. The fight continued for some time, but he still remained on the defensive as he had been advised. Often the Portuguese lifted his visor, and made signs to the other that he should do likewise. When the fight had continued for some time in this way the Portuguese lifted his visor and Guillaume de la Haye, without lifting his, sought to present the point of his axe to his face. The Portuguese began at once to retreat, but when they saw how it was going they cried “Ho, ho, ho” and went diligently to take them. They say that the Portuguese was very short of breath, and that if de la Haye had wanted to come a little closer he could have thrown him to earth in wrestling, as he was one of the best wrestlers you could find. Then both of them were given honor and good cheer.

Another knight, Jacques de Lailang, even deliberately wore less armor in his duels and got an advantage over his opponents due to the greater visibility and ease of breathing.

>Sir James Douglas fought with his lance, but soon lost hold of it, and seized his axe and fought a little with that, but not long, for Sir Jacques made him lose that also, as he made him lose his lance. Sir James, being very angry and troubled to see himself thus disarmed of his lance and of his axe, suddenly seized his dagger and thought to strike at Sir Jacques in t

Venezuelans, could you help me to write a fic set in your country?

So, I'm a big fan of the After the End mod for Crusader Kings 2. I was quite happy when the developers finally finished the overhaul of Northern South America and decided to play on the kingdom of Venezuela, which compromises everything east of Lara and Portuguesa and west of Guianas. Aprume is a land of caudillos hordes and Bolivar is a separate kingdom (which right now is falling.)

I have so many questions I don't know from where to begin, and I never was in Venezuela so forgive me if I sound rude or stupid.

  1. Do you think the Wikipedia's page for Venezuela is a good source of information? Could you suggest others?
  2. How do you imagine a medieval Venezuela? I guess the main ethnicity in the game, the Caraqueños, is meant to represent the real world's population descendants, because groups such as the Wayuu are distinct.
  3. Caracas is still the capital. Which kinds of things you think that would still be standing? Only the Panteón Nacional is confirmed to be standing, and Simon Bolivar's tomb is subject of peregrinations. Do you think the queen of Venezuela would live in a more fortress-like Palace of Miraflores or in one of the historical forts?
  4. How do you think architecture would be, in general? And clothes, jewelery, arts, etc? What weapons and armor the soldiers would use? Modelled after the Conquistadores, or should it be described in more inovative ways?

I feel like I'm missing lots of things, but that is a start at least. Feel free to ask or add anything.

Armor type in A Little Hatred?

I know there's been discussion on which time period the series takes 'inspiration' from.

I was just curious what armor you all think The Young Lion is wearing in the battle scenes he's in. IIRC he was wearing a helm with a visor. Does anyone have a good idea of what the armor type is in this 'moving towards industrialization' period?

Civilization Match-up Discussion Round 9 Week 2: Incas vs Spanish

Rewriting history, are we? With tower rushes no less!

Hello and welcome back for another Age of Empires 2 civilization match up discussion! This is a series where we discuss the various advantages, disadvantages, and quirks found within the numerous match ups of the game. The goal is to collectively gain a deeper understanding of how two civilizations interact with each other in a variety of different settings. Feel free to ask questions, pose strategies, or provide insight on how the two civilizations in question interact with each other on any map type and game mode. This is not limited to 1v1 either. Feel free to discuss how the civilizations compare in team games as well! So long as you are talking about how the two civilizations interact, anything is fair game! Last week we discussed the Portuguese vs Teutons, and next up is the Incas vs Spanish!

Incas: Infantry civilization

  • Start with free llama
  • Villagers affected by infantry Blacksmith upgrades
  • Houses support 10 population
  • Buildings cost -15% stone
  • TEAM BONUS: Farms built +50% faster
  • Unique Unit: Kamayuk (Powerful spearman with 1 range)
  • Unique Unit: Slinger (Light, anti-infantry archer, built at Archery Range)
  • Castle Age Unique Tech: Andean Sling (Skirmishers and Slingers no min range)
  • Imperial Age Unique Tech: Fabric Shields (Kamayuks, Slingers, and Eagles +1/+2 armor)

Spanish: Gunpowder and Monk civilization

  • Builders work +30% faster
  • Blacksmith upgrades cost no gold
  • Cannon Galleons benefit from Ballistics (much faster, accurate projectiles)
  • Gunpowder units fire +18% faster
  • TEAM BONUS: Trade Units generate +25% gold
  • Unique Unit: Conquistador (Powerful mounted cannoneer)
  • Unique Unit: Missionary (Weaker, mounted Monk)
  • Castle Age Unique Tech: Inquisition (Monks convert faster)
  • Imperial Age Unique Tech: Villagers exceptional in combat

Below are some match up-specific talking points to get you all started. These are just to give people ideas, you do not need to address them specifically if you do not want to!

  • Okay, so for your 1v1 on Arabia or Serengeti, how quickly does this match up become a mess? Both civs have exceptional tower rushes, but relatively minor eco bonuses. However, Incas have a more streamlined tech tree with eagles and archers, but Spanish have cavalry and conqs. Who has the edge?

[Lets Build] 100 random events for travel in a western horror/southern gothic campaign

I’m running a southern gothic horror campaign and would really like some ideas for random encounters out on the road. The campaign was inspired in part by the album “feast of the hunters moon” if that helps with getting the vibe

  1. The party sees a cloud of crows blot out the sun, then dissipate in seemingly random directions.

  2. The party comes across a prison wagon missing its driver. The prisoners locked inside avoid speaking to the party. They’ve seen something they’d rather not.

  3. The party passes a slick haired snake oil salesman who is unsettlingly eager to sell them his new product.

  4. The party finds a pit by the side of the road filled with vultures devouring the corpse of some unknown animal. Are horse carcasses supposed to have that many legs?

  5. A blood red dust storm completely envelopes the parties caravan and is gone as quickly as it showed up.

  6. You pass a grove with a bunch of hanging victims. When you pass through it (or taking your time investigating) you hear a noise. You turn around to see the figures coming for, noose still around their necks. The only way for them to remove the curse is to hang someone else in their place or they end up back on the tree. This is unashamedly stolen from half-life 2. You bump into a priest with a gun hunting down his wayard flock (they're all now zombies/mutants) u/Nardoneski

  7. After hours of walking uphill through a featureless forest the PC's become suspicious. More time passes and still going uphill. The sun hangs still i the sky. The map said the camp was only an hour away and we should have passed a creek, by now.

  8. A new-built church stands beside the road in the middle of nowhere. The pastor and his family are living out of tents and clearly starving in the wilderness but he insist God told him to build on this spot and accept no charity from non-believers.

  9. An abandoned plantation house looms out of fallow fields where nothing has been cultivated in years. Upon closer inspection the PC's can learn that the family that owns the plantation is still there. Three siblings who haven't spoken in years have each claimed on story of the house (can be ghost or vampires or whatever, DM's choice)

  10. Ahead, a herd of goats is crossing the path extending as far as the PC's can see in either direction. It will take 1d4 hours for the herd to pass, but if the party tries to force their way through, the goatherders will come riding out of nowhere and confront them.

  11. A fast-talking, shabby

Titans by roles and my opinions on them (Conclusion at the end)

Offense:

Albion the Dragon Slayer– With his sword and the energy rope holding it, plus his immunity to mind control, I can say that Albion can work as a great offensive titan.

Antedeluvian– This is a clear offense titan. Not only is his sword very strong, his power to drain power/energy, vaporize titans and even flight. Antedeluvian is definitely a top tier titan.

Cavalier– We didn’t see much of this titan, which I find sad, but I can tell that Cavalier is an offense titan due to his flame swords, flight and armor.

Cursed Archer– His lightning bolt-like arrows are very strong and efficient.

Dullahan– His shield, it’s flame breathing, mace and disarming is a great knight-like titan.

Harlekin– The mobility of this titan makes it great for ambushing.

Melee Artist– Goro, but weaker and swords. Not a bad pick, but there are definitely better picks.

Sorcerel– The ranged version of Sabriel. Prefer Sabriel tho, as you will see later.

Vigilante– Couldn’t choose between support or offense, but decide to put him in offense. But Vigilante also has support potential with his „Cindercloak “.

Ariel– Ariel doesn’t really have any damage abilities, but his abilities do help in combat.

Elf King Oberon– Just a great swordsman that is better than Melee Artist.

Gybolg– What is better than Oberon? A giant tree with a giant sword.

Kelpie– A low tier titan. Really, just take look at what it does. Not a good titan choice, Sophie. Sophie is not very titan-seeker, more a spell-seeker, but god damnit, Sophie, get it together!

Lindorm– A very strong titan, top tier. Just the damage alone gets Lindorm to top tier.

Solar– Alone, I don’t think Solar works great, but with Lunar, it becomes very strong.

Templar– Probably the same tier as Oberon, as both are great swordsmen.

Ammit Heart-Eater– Honestly, a solid pick by the Organization. Good job, Klaus.

Anubian– Very badass and one of my favorite titans.

Ash– This is very strong and very annoying to beat, because only fire can beat it.

Dark Pharaoh– Probably one of the strangest titans there is. Also, wtf is the wiki saying about him? Who said that shit?

Kopesh– Only saw him once, can’t say very much about him.

Lilith the Queen– Not only does she have great mobility in the air and on the ground, but her nails and her javelin palms are just OP with her mobility.

Nightlurker– Another favorite of my, great ambusher and its large mouth with its saliva that is poison that can melt armor like caramel what?!

Psikofen– G

How To Make the DMG Guns Work

Like many DMs, I've considered firearms in my campaigns. Most people seem to think the DMG firearms are underwhelming, and I would disagree. I think they work just fine, but it's going to require a bit of effort.

First and foremost, we can tackle the Renaissance firearms.

The Medieval Era

Firearm Cost Damage Weight Properties
Pistol 250 gp 1d10 piercing 3 lb Ammunition (range 30/90), loading
Musket 500 gp 1d12 piercing 10 lb Ammunition (range 40/120), loading, two-handed

These are the easiest to implement. Firearms were prominent towards the end of the European medieval period, and the whole "Age of Discovery" period where breastplates, rapiers, and muskets all worked side by side.

You can just drop these into your campaign and they just work. I'm running a campaign that takes place in fantasy version of this time period, and it just works.

They're a little underwhelming compared to a Crossbow Expert, to the single shot per turn limitations, but I think that's fine. If you're concerned about making them more appealing, making all firearms +3 by default is not a bad idea since you're only getting a single attack per round anyway. Rogues and Martial Clerics will love them.

#The Classical Era

Now when we translate later into the Classical Era, this becomes a bit more clunky. During the American Revolutionary and Civil Wars, we saw not much armor but we still see firearms and swords being used together. If you want to run a campaign in this period, firearms that use the same stat blocks will still work just fine.

Using those stat blocks, most enemies will be ranged combatants which is where we see a big transition. For your players who still want to run around in a gambeson and rapier, it will work just fine. This is also a great time period to place a pirate-themed campaign in. Armor is going to be a bit harder to come up with, but blessed trenchcoats and tunics can be fun too.

You also have plenty to work with such as witch hunts, and other occult things that were very spooky scary in this time period. The campaign won't be quite as romantic to your players who want to run around in heavy armor, but I mean who doesn't

(Speculation) Redesigning Vietnamese

Hi!

There is something that always bothers me about the Viets... and it's the fact that they are not very historically accurate; or, perhaps, they could be but the developers ended up leaving out some of their strenghts. Plus, I do think that their playstyle doesn't reflect very well the vietnamese way of fighting, so I tried to redesign them.

I tried to redesign them as a Archer and Navy civ, with an accent on Gunpowder units. However, I do think that they really don't fit well in these categories; they are more of an hybrid map civ with strong economy now, much like the Persians. I will explain the historical origin of every bonus, I kept most of the bonuses the developers gave them, in this first attempt at redesigning them. One of the core themes of the Vietnamese strategy in battle was to temporize. They wanted the war to wage for longer, to grind out their opponents using schorced earth tactics, traps and hit-and-run tactics. I tried to reflect this by making them an "Exponential Civ", a civ that grows stronger and stronger as the timer goes on. They are probably a bit OP now, but that's why I made this post.

Civ Bonus

---Galleons +1 range for every Age, since Feudal Age (+3 in Imperial Age). This bonus may sound familiar and it is because it comes from the Hittites. I always found it a very good military bonus for Galleons. It makes them so much better at coastal raiding, less vulnerable to Fire Galleys and Demo Ships and much more effective in battle because they will also get the opportunity of landing 1 or 2 extra hit while other galleys close the distance. For example, they would not need to adjust their position while attacking another fleet, they could just fire as soon as they see it. It's not a very strong water bonus like the Saracen or Viking one but it still helps a lot in the background, making your navy perform their task much better. The Viets were a naval powerhouse and one of their specialty was coastal raiding. Moreover, this also reflect the fact that they soon adopted cannons and other gunpowder weapons (thus giving more range to a Galleon's bolt).

---Unit Production Speed +5% in Feudal, +10% in Castle and +15% in Imperial Age. A bit of Aztec vibe, here. One of the distinctive trait of the Vietnamese army was that almost every soldier was allowed to be a farmer and a soldier at the same time. There was a standing army, with professional soldiers, but it was very small and formed the core of the army, unlike the Romans.

[WP] You have no skill with any weapon. In fights you tend to go down quickly. Yet, heroes from multiple realms seek you out because you have a skill no hero has; the ability to navigate the twisting turning tangled web that is the Heroic Insurance industry.

“Hi, I’m Lyle Biliti! Did you know you have rights? Those jagoffs in the heroes’ insurance industry would certainly like you to think otherwise. You break your back 24/7 to save innocent lives for the greater good, and how do these money-hungry vipers repay you? By refusing to fork over even a dime when you actually break your back on the job! I believe every hero of every shape and size deserves their due compensation. That’s why you should call me, Lyle Biliti! I’m the guy who will get you the settlement you deserve for your hard work! Remember, when it’s time to file, Better Dial Lyle!”

The pencil-thin human turned off the television and turned to the three figures sitting on the other side of his desk. With a slimy smile on his lips, he said, “Well? What do you think?”

“You get Harry money for sprained back and hamstrings?” said the muscular figure to the very left of Lyle, his orange-and-green bodysuit almost ready to burst from the sheer size of the man wearing it.

“You bet your coral ass I can, Harry Hurricane. Huge fan, by the way. All I need from you is an insignificant sum of $10,000 as a retainer so that I can get started right away on getting the money you deserve,” replied Lyle.

Harry rubbed his chin in contemplation for a moment and said, “$10,000 lot of money. You promise Harry it worth?”

“If you want the best services in town, you gotta be willing to pay for them first. I’ll get you so much money you won’t have to leave your little coral reef castle for the next three years,” replied the lawyer, his smile growing wider.

“Hmm…okay. Harry talk to accountant to send you money.”

“Fantastic! Just talk to Isabella at the front desk on your way out and she’ll give you a few simple forms to sign! Pleasure doing business with you, Mr. Hurricane!” exclaimed Lyle, waiting for the massive hero to exit his office before he turned to the remaining two. “Now, Miss Tique. I understand you had a bit of an unfortunate run-in with some of the Tepanecs. Nasty little buggers, those are. And those money-grubbing parasites at LifeCrest just won’t fork over your accident insurance payout! Despicable, isn’t it?”

The woman wearing a full set of ceremonial Aztec armor turned to the man wearing a suit beside her as he translated the lawyer’s words to her. She replied tersely in Nahuatl, the translator turning back to Lyle and saying, “She says it is a disgrace to her people that they are dishonored in this fashion.

The refreshing beverage known to most as an "Arnold Palmer" is originally known as an "Armored Parmer" but now nobody wants to call it that because it makes you sound like a mumbling buffoon.

Arnold Palmer is great golfer but he didn't "invent" the classic mix of iced tea and lemonade. The drink already existed as it was originally known: The Armored Parmer. It's named as such after armored lemons, you know the ones with those large spiky rinds? And they used to always make them in Parmer County FL, west of Dade. Parmer is named after those helmets the conquistadors wore. You know, like when they were searching for the fountain of youth? Those sharp billed steel helmets. Those are Palmiers. So thus Parmer County. Anyways, Arnold Palmer was just some popular guy who thought the name sounded similar to his. So now everyone thinks it's named after him, but the truth is more cruel. Calling it an Armored Parmer makes you sound ridiculous.

Homebrew chapter lore roughdraft C&C appreciated

The Angels of Conquest also known as the Conquistadors are officially a loyalist successor chapter of the Dark Angels. Their origins can be traced to a Dark Angels fleet during the Horus Heresy on a mission involving 11,000 Astartes to extract loyalist legionaries of the 20th legion. While the mission was a success the fleet wasn’t heard from again for 3,600 terran years after the rebellion had ended. When contact was made with them again most of their fleet was missing and only 591 remained all with some sort of prosthetic implants but they had come into possession of a DoAT ship they named Saint Mariah’s. Notable figures who survived are their current head chaplain Solomon the Redeemed and their chief apothecary Elijah the Redeemer who was entombed in a leviathan dreadnought but had sadly passed away in M.35 41. In honor of him a crusade was launched into the north east part of the milky way, his visage was ingrained upon the Saint Mariah’s, and their apothecary order renamed to the redeemer’s hospitallers. The loyalist Alpha legionaries were according to solomon all wiped out during their time in the warp however a section of their mothership is restricted from entering to most of their legion and on many occasions have been seen transferring space marines with unpainted armor to other legions as well as the angels of conquest being larger than their dark angels brethren. As well as there being rumors of there being another chapter of space marines called the Custodes Vindicta. The Conquistadors recruitment area is in an area in the west sector of the milky way galaxy where they have established an empire called monarchia de espania consisting of 36 systems with each harboring at least 4 chapters. The empire is known for its quarrels with the echlisiarchy, ship production, and exporting of multiple goods including space marine aspirants to other chapters who the Conquistadors are either fond of or who are in desperate need of rank replenishment.

Notable events:

  • Quarrel with the ultramarines over the codex astartes which resulted with the chapter supposedly complying.
  • Christo Columbus company master of the 3rd embarking upon a venture to the west of the milky way after receiving the blessing of the Chapter master Ferdinand the Great and the mechanicus overseer isabella of espania where they established their empire
  • Deploying forces to an area east of them during and ork invasion and having the salamanders supposedly found 2 chapters in the area.

Guia completa de Kled (+1m) y opinion honesta de como ser OTP

Introduccion:

Hola, soy Galvaleira, un OTP Kled, juego Kled desde la season 8 (1,060,000 puntos de maestria aprox.) actualmente estoy en diamond 3 y fui coach durante un tiempo, esta guia no la hago con la intencion de hacerme el bueno ni nada, de hecho hay cosas que descubri hace no mucho, tanto builds y alguna que otra mecanica, hago esta guia porque amo este champ y me encanta enseñar, si alguien tiene alguna duda o si vio que me equivoque en algo que me lo diga, no tengo ningun problema en responder.

En esta guia tratare de explayar todo lo que se sobre Kled y dare mi opinion sobre ser OTP, ya que estoy en desacuerdo con lo que muchos piensan sobre serlo y me parece interesante explicar el porque.

Si solo te interesa saber sobre Kled puedes saltearte lo siguiente, es solo mi opinion de como ser OTP

¿Sirve ser OTP?

Antes que nada, un OTP (One Trick Pony) es alguien que unicamente juega una cosa, la gracia que tiene es jugarla a un nivel mecanico casi perfecto, saber cada match, cada build, el daño preciso que hacen tus habilidades, las ventajas y desventajas de tu champ y un largo etc.

¿Sirve? Si, pero en lo personal es algo que NO recomendaria

Mucha gente pregunta "¿Sirve "X personaje" para ser OTP?". "¿Que personaje recomiendan para ser OTP?". Lo que yo no recomiendo es tratar de buscar ese champ, porque de lo contrario te terminaras aburriendo de el, de hecho hay mucha gente que simplemente no puede ser OTP, se aburre de jugar siempre lo mismo, si no estas dispuesto a jugar desde lvl 1 al 30 unicamente con un champ (a tal punto de no tener maestria con otro) aun no encontraste tu OTP o simplemente no estas hecho para serlo. El ser OTP es tryhardear con un solo champ sin importar cuanto juegues con el (yo al dia de hoy sigo encantado de jugar Kled), aunque eso no quiere decir que con amigos o por aburrimiento no juguemos otra cosa, al fin y al cabo sigue siendo un juego.

¿Cuales son las cosas positivas de ser OTP?

  • Sin dudas la gran capacidad mecanica que obtendras de tu champ, independientemente de que juegues Yasuo, Yi, Malphite, Camille o el champ que te guste, tendra sus trucos que no todos sepan y aprenderlos te dara una gran ventaja frente a otros que simplemente sepa lo basico de su champ
  • En los elos bajos se trata mas de saber usar tu champ y una vez que aprendas la mayoria de mecanicas de tu champ comenzaras a aprender cosas de Microgame, ya que habras mecanizado todo con respecto a tu champ

Archer line meta and the problem of Cav Archers and Unique units in this meta.(need some editing and corrections)

https://ageofempires.fandom.com/wiki/Archer_units_(Age_of_Empires_II) link of the archer stats

This is a global problem that includes every civs, while theres a healthy number of strategys out there on the game, i feel that some of them are killing just a bit the fantasy of the game and therefore needs to improve. (theres something to it that makes it some sort of inspirational to watch pros do well memes strats, some sort of wish to have a different meta.)

the meta has some problems that have also inderectly make the game phase,

1)units cost, makes archers a top choice, they are very cheap because they cost wood instead of food, that in conjuction with many other advantages make them best unit to start the game. well it depends really but the majority of the time this is the case.

  1. food is the more complex resource to obtain in the game .In land maps the map has 1500 to 2000 food that you can gather and after that you depend entirely on farms. (water maps with fish booming contribute to make the food military more afordable.

The point is that farms are expensive so the more farms you create the less total resources you will have which creates weak point for food military which totally depends on mill upgrades to be effective but for thoses upgrades you have to first advance ages so its not that easy. This also has to do with other mill upgrades problems , the thing is that they need to be research before the farms are created in order to be effective which should not be the case the upgrade should upgrade the already existing farms .(thats why i think chinese feels so strong and versatile with the 45 extra food on farms, which is a top tier team bonus.)

This resource problem its the major problem i think and unstable base that makes the meta so complex and its deserves a modernization, it may generate some problems with some civs bonus on scouts l, were there are different units, civ bonuses, and a ton of civs compensations

3)units upgrades for the archer-line are cheap and powerful crossbowman and arbalest compared to every other unit upgrade, but i think its a good thing to leave them being cheap.

The nerf should hit fletching costing 150 food instead of 100 f + 50 gold,also make bodkin arrow cost the same as iron casting and leave bracer being more expensive .

One crucial thing in rts is Time, and the time required for forging, iron casting, and blast furna

A question on the creative origins of the Mad Lancers

I finally started watching and reading the Sharpe series this week, and I noticed in Sharpe's Gold there is a man by the name of El Casco who is wearing what looks to be conquistadors breastplate that was specifically mentioned to be 3 centuries old and looted from a museum. His band of partisans also has medieval style armor and is greatly feared by the French.

I'm wondering if this is where the idea of the Mad Lancers came from.

Mapuche civilization idea

MAPUCHE (Araucans) (500 BC-on)

Slingers ^(and anti gunpowder) civilization

Bonuses:

  • Recieve a 1/2/3 free Villagers when new age reached
  • Bloodlines, Husbandry are free
  • Archery Range techs are 50% cheaper

They have a great economy bonus starting in the Feudal Age. It could boost your economy in the Feudal and the Castle age amazingly. They have access to fully upgraded CA, free Bloodlines and Husbandry wouldn't be OP since they don't get Stable Cavalry units. It could boost Cavalry Archer in the Castle Age nicely and they Heavy Cavalry Archer upgrade is 50% cheaper too. (+ Thumb Ring) Also I wouldn't ignore cheap Crossbow/Elite Skirmisher techs. I would choose between Slingers, Toqui, Cavalry Archer as a gold unit in the late game. They have good Siege options and classic Meso trash without Hussar. I would never choose them on water. They have below average Defenses and Monks.

Unique Units:

  • Toqui

Heavy Cavalry unit, resistant to gunpowder attacks

  • Costs: 65F/50G Stats: 120(140)HPs, Armor: 1/1(1/3), Attack:7(11), Strong vs Gunpowder units, Weak vs Camels, Spearmen, Attack Bonus:10(12) vs Gunpowder units
  • Elite: 950F/700G

A Cavalry Unique unit? Yes! Mapuche is the only Meso civilization access to Cavalry Units. They stole Spanish horses and they learnt how to ride them. Also Spanish traitors teached the Araucans. They became skilled horse riders, however, they have reduced options for Cavalry because they just stole them. They have hidden armor against gunpowder attacks too. They are good as a "heavy" army like Paladins (not as) due to their high Pierce Armor and HP.

Imperial Slinger:

  • Cost: 400F/250G
  • +1 attack, +1 range, +10 HP, +2 vs Infantry, +3 hidden pierce armor vs anti Archer units

Makes Slingers more superior. The Araucans used slings in their armies like other native tribes. I would say Imperial Slinger is the best anti infantry ranged unit.

Arauca

Unique Techs:

  • CA UT: Kollellaullin: Toqui and Slinger training time significantly decreased 300F/300G

Unique Unit with less training time. It's always amazing since you have to make many Castles to mass Unique Units. It does affect Slingers too.

  • IMP UT: Arauco War: Units +6 armor vs gunpowder 500F/400G

Historical bonus. The Araucans resisted against the Spanish conquistadors successfully.

Team Bonus:

  • Towers +2 bonus damage to Infantry

When does this bonus useful? When the opponent does [email protected]+Trush and you have to make a def

Rise of Kingdoms Unique Troops Guide for Beginners

Web Version: https://houseofkingdoms.com/guides-tips/unique-troops-guide/

Each civilization in Rise of Kingdoms comes with their own traits and unique troops which unlocks throughout ages. In this particular, each civilization have unique troop that becomes available at Tier 4 / Tier 5 and often have better stats than a regular unit.

In this guide, we are going to talk about each civilization's unique unit, mainly what they look like and what their stats are and how you can benefit the most using them in your armies.

Before we get to the details in this guide, you shouldn't be choosing your civilization based on these troops alone. Traits is also a big part of the game that affects how you play your game at maximum level.

Also keep it in your mind that all unique units becomes available at Tier 4. Which most likely means a majority of the playerbase will never get the opportunity to unlock them -- or eventually unlock them after playing a ton of time.

In fact, to unlock Tier 4 troops you will have to have City Hall at Level 21 with Academy matching at that level. The time it takes to research for each unit is approximately 30 days (1 Month) in real-time.

In the other words, there's real-end game stuff and the time it takes to research all Tier 4 troops isn't quite that important as you thought in Rise of Kingdoms. Many players unlock their unique unit first upon reaching Tier 4 and largely stick to one troop-type army in combination with the support of their allies.

Which also means it's recommended to join one of these top alliances since you will need them to work together to build a diversified force.

So, if you aren't sure which civilization to pick, then I suggest you to pick one that offers the best commander and general boost, not just unique troop. For starters, here's some civilizations and commanders that I recommended investing your time in:

Best Civilizations for Starters:

In the end, I think it is better this way. I was part of a small group sent to investigate a newly discovered “hole” in the Amazon canopy. Due to the canopy’s height, we had to fast-rope down from the helicopter in order to get a closer look at the strange phenomenon as the pilot did not want to risk the aircraft getting damaged.

My team consisted of: Derek, the commander, Eric as the communications operator, the interpreter Rafael, the rifleman Dean, and myself as the “investigator” due to my history degree and understanding of South American cultures and practices. Once on the ground, we began to fan out and secure the perimeter and check for anything that could be dangerous. Once done we began looking around.

Around the “hole” there were ruins of what appeared to be small stone huts most likely for farmers or other civilians. There were only a handful of ruins but what struck me as odd was that there were no signs of agriculture or anything you would expect to find in a seemingly untouched site from long ago. Other than a few baskets here and there and some rotten furniture in the houses we found nothing of note except for a handful of skeletons. The skeletons appeared to be wearing Spanish armor like that of a Conquistador. I knew some Spaniards ventured into the Amazon in search of gold but I did not expect to find them this far in.

To add to the mystery we only found skeletons with that type of armor. It was as if the native inhabitants had vanished, not even bodies were left. On one of the Spanish skeletons, there was a note which I had to have Rafael translate. The note said something along the lines of “As per decree of the crown, you must go forth and scout prospective land for the founding of another of his majesty’s cities within the Amazon River Basin. Signed, Governor Orellana.”

Upon hearing this I was immediately captivated. Orellana was made governor by King Charles I of the Holy Roman Empire and tasked with founding a city at the mouth of the river and at the basin. According to records, his expedition to do so ended in failure with some men marooned on the coast and Orellana himself dying from sickness after his boat delegation was bombarded with poisoned arrows. If this note was indeed from the men under his command then how on Earth did they make it this far into the forest

Samurai and other Individual Warriors were not all Master Duelists and had organization and Neither were soldiers who relied on formations like Roman Legions all only trained to fight in blocks and lacked individual skill

Saw two posts.

First one is this.

>I saw a question on Yahoo Answers a few days back asking why the Samurai always get stereotyped as being individual warriors who are master swordsmen but lack basic warfare stuff such as how to hold a wall of pikes or how to do hit-run tactics on horse and later with riflemen infantry, and so many other basic tenets we associate with the Romans and other organized military superpowers. The poster was complaining that people have the image of Samurai being master swordsmen who can individually cut down a gang of mooks but lacked the training to do something as basic as building obstacles to stop enemy cavalry and such.

>I wish I can find the post but it seems to have disappear from Yahoo Answers.

>But I recognized everything he wrote. Whenever you see debates about Samurai vs Spartans, or comparing Japanese warfare with say the Roman empire, the common comment that comes up is that "Romans would lose to Samurai because Romans only fought in shield walls while Samurai were experts at dueling" or "an army of Zulus would slaughter Samurais because Samurais were too reliant on disorganized fighting like barbarians while Zulus were skilled at square formations and disciplined maneuvers and outflanking the enemy!"

>Basically not just on the internet but i notice in real life too many people seem to have the impression Samurai were all master swordsmen and Japanese warfare was a serious of disorganized solo combat where people fought like barbarians outside of organized square blocks in the manner how Bravehart portrays battle.

>Why did this stigma come? I mean not just Samurai cinema but even martial arts movies show Japanese armies using stuff like trenches for poorly train rifle men to sit in and battle from or using ships to attack an enemy fortress that has an unprotected opening because the river is the assumed barricade. Even anime shows Japanese militia holding pikes in a wall formation and duelists like Musashi ordering Mongol tactics such as shoot with a bow and than follow up with an organized cavalry charge!

>So I am wonder why the general public esp internet debaters on "warriors vs warriors" topics (esp knights vs Samurai and Romans vs Samurai) think that all the Samurai was ever good at was disorganized civilian fighting such as dueling and that all Japanese warfare was about is sword vs sword? Japanese media westerners often point out as proof the Samurai were the best swordsmen often show

Empty space on map filler with new factions way down line ( very far away dlc)

Another post we talked and well here it is It’s gonna get long here but bam lets go , for new factions added to current map we have I’d go with the obvious empty parts of maps being filled , we got a huge swathe of land to the south east part of map , we have a large island cluster beside west coast vlandia ,and a big island To the north of sturgia (prob the nords home land ) , a small cluster in the middle sea , and a large land mass /dessert to the south west beneath Aserai . This leaves 5 Easy to fill areas to add new factions too. Update had stuff to do but here we go 1. South east part of map , I would have this be your Carthage type civilization ( would be a trading mercenary army with dessert/ East blended with Greek vibes) would play as being originally a trading empire from some where made into its own thing over time through wealth , read Carthage and Punic wars to get idea of civ style and army ( hoplite elite inf greek , bedoin and Numidian type light cav and skirmish cav and skirmishers , mercenary’s and should have like a marine type infantry shock troop with throwing and sword focus ( would love if navy was in game ) at This point. Cities would focus on coast and maybe some islands close by. 2. Right beside vlandia in those islands I think should be Portuguese/ Spanish influence as a very progressive think flamboyant if you will dress and attitude , think conquistadors and Swiss guard type gear and style , your pole arm and crossbow focus especially 2 handed halbedier type weapons and kettles , crossbows would be range focus ( gunpowder if added in limitation ) But yeah think early renaissance and Spanish conquistador , ( this faction could be moved and also maybe get a holding on the main land a tad where vlandia is now. 3. Land north of sturgia , well now this is hard since clearly they have a Viking Esq already in and nords in game sort of in lore , umm so I was thinking we take inspiration from the Kiev , Proto Russian kingdoms ( they were ruled by saxons I think that came with elite soldiers and set up small kingdoms in Russia ), they are the ones who supplied the first Varangian guard to the Byzantines so there elite are your rich bejeweled Vikings style very heavy armor , now they do use horse lancers more , style would be more Russian than Norse. I need help with this one not much I got . 4. Now we have

Bello Deorum: Part One

Prologue

For a moment, the Earth was silent.

Then the screams began.

-- The response from Earths governments was immediate and swift: a resounding No. Behind closed doors, the leaders of every armed force on the planet were meeting, planning the defense of Earth from a threat with unknown offensive capabilities and motives.

The next day, every channel on TV and radio was overridden by an Emergency Broadcast from the President. He stood against a simple blue background, at a podium, his flyaway white hair and stern expression giving him the appearance of the crazy old scientist who saves the world in so many movies about this scenario.

"My fellow Americans."

He paused. Smacked his lips.

"My fellow humans. Today we face the greatest threat in our history. The Thryaxians have not responded to any of our requests to negotiate. They have not accepted any compromise. They demand the total surrender of the human race, or they will conquer our planet."

His gnarled fingers flexed on the podium. Every President wants to be a War President, but there's a world (or several) of difference between vaguely-brown terrorists and extraterrestrials.

"We, the leaders and governments of Earth, have come to a collective decision. You are welcome to obey it or not, that's your prerogative. If you want to surrender and make your own life easier, that's a valid choice."

He drew in a deep breath.

"But as for me, as for the rest of us...we will never surrender. Never back down. If these alien bastard want to take the Earth, they'll have to pay for it, with their blood."

He thumped the podium, face turning red. His Brooklyn accent thickened.

"We will not be bullied into submission! We are the people of Earth, and we will stand and fight!"

He shoved his fist into the air, defiant and strong, and across the world, millions of others did. They cheered as their own leaders delivered the same message, one of pride and anger. How dare they demand our world?

The first assault came mere hours later. Paris, Washington, London, Beijing, Tokyo, New Delhi, Sydney, Oslo, Athens, Moscow, Copenhagen, Tehran, Los Angeles, Manila, Detroit, Arkangel, Riyadh, Lisbon, Islamabad, Pyongyang, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Jerusalem, St. Louis, Rome, Cairo

Drowns were never human

This is the fourth installment to a series of post I am making to uncover Minecraft lore

here are the other 3

  1. End = Moon
  2. Illager Conquistadors
  3. You're not the last human

I agree with MatPat, the Drowns are a religious race and the temples aren't the only piece of evidence of that, but I don't agree that they were humans. I know, they spawn near villages and shipwrecks. But, there's a chance the ruins were always underwater, and who says those ships were Drowns', they could've been the ones to have sunken them. I believe that the Drowns were once zombies, forced underwater by humans, and transformed into the horrific, blue, savages. I guess one would say, that they were zombies, and zombies shouldn't retreat because they have no thoughts or fear. But, if you look closely at the Drowns and other zombies, they aren't like that. In fact, that's not what all zombies are like! Zombies aren't all, brainless, dead-eyed freaks. No! If one were to dive into zombie pop culture, you would find all versions of zombies right here: https://zombie.fandom.com/wiki/Types_of_Zombies and keep scrolling down, eventually, you would find "intelligent zombies" click the green words, it says that they "are zombies that retain their personality and intelligence" it originated when "the infection doesn't erase all signs of thought", and yes it does say that you need overwhelming evidence that the zombie is smart in order to classify it as one. So, here it is, Intelligent zombies are the few zombies that can wield weapons and armor, Minecraft zombies sometimes spawn wearing armor and holding weapons, intelligent zombies are to avoid traps. Minecraft zombies tend to stay clear of anything that is a dead give away of a trap and can path find their way to their target if there is no way of reaching their prey the zombies will not proceed and just stand there. And then "personality", this isn't much to prove that Minecraft zombies have personalities but it's all I have, zombies fighting targets will not proceed to a different one unless provoked, zombie piglins will not hurt you unless you attack, where they let out a mighty war cry and alert others nearby. Not enough? Well, here's another

The Eventuality of Assassin’s Creed Plague

I’ve been speculating for a few months now that following Assassin’s Creed Kingdom/ Ragnarok/ Vikings, rather than move to a far east Asian setting like so many people desire, we’ll be seeing a title set in high medieval Europe at the height of the Black Plague. The recent 4chan “leak” or rumor that said Ragnarok’s map would be all of Northern Europe also mentioned that the next title would be set during The Plague. While the “leak” is almost certainly fake, I wanted to discuss why I do feel that the Plague will be the next setting after Vikings due to Ubisoft Trends, the inevitable disappointment by Ragnarok, and why we’d see the Plague over other settings.

A common complaint about Assassin’s Creed Origins was how many players didn’t feel like they were in “Ancient Egypt”. While the excellent world design felt Greco-Roman and Egyptian, it didn’t feel ancient, because it was only 44BCE. When people hear Ancient Egypt they think about 3000bce-1500bce, the building of the pyramids, the great kings of Tutankhamun or the almighty Ramses. I am sure that many players will feel the same way when they hear “Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok takes place within the heart of Medieval Europe at the height of the Viking Invasions” (or whatever similar-sounding sales pitch Ubi will obviously say).

Since Unity and the famous Battle of Paris sequence, fans have been begging for a return to the medieval period, and showing what Europe was like in the way only Assassin’s Creed can. Understandably so, as the medieval periods are fascinating times, that have left fans of the fantasy genre enamored with for years, due to the massive amount of work that takes place in the era. Arguably, fantasy itself - with the mythicization of the Arthurian Legend by Gregory of Monmouth in the 12th century - was popularized and romanticized during the medieval period.

I want you to close your eyes for a moment and imagine what medieval Europe would look like.

I’m sure most of you thought of large sprawling castles, bustling cities made of wood and stone, upper stories jettying over the sides creating overhangs. Massive cathedrals, rose windows, flying buttresses and arches, knights in shining armor, and princes saving princesses. Maybe even a few of you thought of dragons, trolls, and witches. The truth is that much of that did exist to some extent, and I’m sure most people want to see a historical recreation of it. So when you hear that Assassin’s Creed Ragnarok will be in the medieval perio

[Guide] Conquistador's Beginner's Guide & Early Game Tier List - Aura Rework Edition (December 19th, 2019)

Everyone has seen the Tier List(s), but for those who are just starting out, getting a team full of powerful E5 units is not a realistic short term goal. So this list attempts to bridge the gap for those who are just starting the game.

First off, sorry PvP players! But PvE is definitely the early game priority. Building a PvE team early will get you further in Seal Land and Aspen, get you more fodder from Seal Land, more guild coins, make more progress in broken spaces and is just better for overall account progression. This guide will be primarily PvE focused. PvP is the domain of late game teams and heavy spenders.

I am open to feedback if anyone has more first hand experience with any of the Heroes on this list.

This guide has gotten so long I've needed to split several less important sections into follow-up comments due to post length restrictions. Links are provided for convenience!

#Change Log v2.2 (2019-12-19)

  • Aura Rework: TL;DR - aura's don't matter any more, build the best team you can
  • Added Garuda (E3 & E5 Support)
  • Added UniMax-3000 (Maybe E3 Support)
  • Moved Cthugha up to the E3 & E5 Core tier due to redesign
  • Moved King Barton down to the 10* Support tier
  • Moved Kroos down to the Maybe E3 Support tier
  • Moved Valkyrie down to the Maybe E3 Core tier
  • Moved Emily up to the 6-9* Support tier
  • Moved Sigmund to the Core section
  • Moved Valentino to the 10* Support tier

Full History

#Important Notes, Terms and Beginner Tips See Comment

#Examples and TL;DR; See Comment

#Practicing What you Preach: How has My Team Progressed? See Comment

#Quick note on Aura re-design

The difference between the "worst" aura (rainbow) and the "best" aura (mono-color) is minimal. Every colored faction hero in your team will add a few hp/atk% and 2% Damage Reduction. Every light/dark faction hero in your team will add a few hp/atk% and 4% CC immunity. Building a team that synergizes well will be FAR more important than a couple percentage points of hp/atk.

#Important note about Hero Regression This system is aimed primarily at later game players looking to easily change up their endgame teams without losing hero copies. The down sides of regressing are:

On the Edge of Heaven 1.5

Hello Everyone! This is a quick teaser for a series I'm working on. I haven't been working on it a lot, but have just jumped back in. Working on fleshing it out more before I start posting, but here's a teaser. The first part can be found here. The next part will be a bit long and focus on our guys in black.

Just a warning, there is some swearing. As always, thanks for reading and critiquing!

I cried for my comrades, who lay still, their broken, battered bodies hiding no truths about their state. Blood flowed to the ground like a monsoon rain. My tears fell heavy, mixing in with rivers of blood. I looked up to see them coming, an unstoppable wave. Their torrent wouldn’t give me the chance to properly mourn, to feel fear, to collapse in on myself.

The trenches barely held under the unbearable strain of enemy barrages. Artillery and gunfire alike shook the earth. They were almost on us now. I write in my journal now my last words, so that maybe, just maybe someone could hear me, someone could hear us, and just maybe I can tell everyone back home goodbye.

- Excerpt from the Journal of a United Nations of Earth Soldier circa 2345

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The United Nation soldiers in the trenches were cowering and had long accepted their fate to die. They were broken and many of their number had already embraced death. All around them laid the bodies of their comrades, blood flowed profusely and seeped into the boots of those still left.

When unknown black ships appeared behind their frontlines, they thought this was the end. They were finally being flanked and annihilated. They never suspected that they would be saved, but saved they were. Out of the black ships came hundreds of troops, moving swiftly and expertly. They overwhelmed the enemy and halted the march of the xenos.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today, we made our first strides against a new enemy of xenos. This was my first real battle. The training did well to prepare me, but nothing truly prepares you to witness a massacre, or at least the aftermath. *We landed behind the United Nation idiots and rolled out pretty quickly in basic platoon attack form

Who would you swap out?

I recently did a little stream where I ran through the (physical) origins of the figs currently (I'd share it, but I'm not too happy with it, though I will be redoing itsoon) and I was a bit surprised to find out where a few of them were from. One of my favorite castle themes, Castle (2007), already has 2 figs in the game with King Brutus and Jester Gogo. I'm stocked it has some reps in the game, but those are not the 2 from that theme I would have went with and I started to think of who I would have swapped tgem out for and I was curious who you all might would have swapped out and exchanged for?

Now personally, I'd try to keep them all to the same theme so no King for a Vermillion even if that might be cool.

Here's my list:

Nya - I'd have used one of her cooler forms such as Samurai X.

Ninjago in general - I'd either have all the armors be from the same wave or each be seperate. Lots of cool designs they just aren't using.

Jester Gogo - Not bad, but we've had other jesters and I hate how he's a Castle (2007) rep. Also, besides the red and white one from Kingdoms, there's not much super unique about the jester. With that said, Jestro.

King Brutus - I'd have gone for a bit more unique king. Like I like Brutus and he's not a bad Castle (2007) rep, but he's not the most unique looking.

Princess Verda - She's nice, but not who I'd pick from Kingdoms. I'd either replace her with one of the "bad" guys with a flail or a forestman with bow. First is a better Kingdoms rep and the second could have had the same kit and forestmen are decently I iconic enough. Verda just seems like generic princess in a green dress.

Castle in general - No basic soldier fig with a sword? Really?

Ice Planet duo - Both figs are solid and I'm glad this theme is being repped, but why by 2 figs very close in design? I'd keep Kelvin (I like her design more with the skis; kit is a seperate issue) and replace Cold with probably s rep from Space Police. As much as I really want more newer space (Mars Mission being my favorite Lego theme), Space Police had existed in 3 seperate forms and it easily deserves some form of rep. Would also help boost the Justice tag and could use the newer space to rep some new things.

Gorwell - I'm happy for new space rep, and the fig is hysterical, but I'd have gone with an ADU soldier without the alien pet. They are cool enough regularly, but I ain't mad at it.

Valcano Iggy - Cool fig, cool subtheme, awesome choice, but a weird one. Honestly forgot t

Did firearms really give the conquistadors an edge over the native Americans?

I often hear people cite firearms as one of the major reasons why the Spanish were able to conquer the Aztecs and other native civilizations. However, whenever I read accounts of battles between conquistadors and native peoples it seems that horses and armor play a much greater role. There are also good reasons why firearms at that period would be less effective that bows: they're less accurate, they have a much slower fire rate, and they're logistically troublesome. The reason why firearms became popular in Europe seems to be their ability to penetrate plate, but when the combatants aren't wearing substantial armor is there actually an advantage to using firearms?

PSA: Rotation does not mean you should stop having fun

There are a lot of memes and comments on weather or not you should craft a deck taking into consideration that eventually rotation will be coming and all your wild cards will be wasted.

From my point of view this should not be a blocking point for players as long as you want to have fun with the game. After all what is the point of playing the game, with a deck that you simply do not enjoy but it has a slight higher win-rate then others? Since I started playing Magic, 3 months ago, I have made myself a vampire deck simply due to the fact that 1. I love vampires and how they are themed in the game, and 2. Because I love Spanish Conquistadors era and armors so its was a delight to have a deck that managed to have them both inside. Was it a competitive deck, not so much until now, did I had and have fun with it? Yes I do. My point is, just craft whatever you feel like playing, and don't just store wild cards for future fun, when you can have it now. By the time the next expansion will be on surely you will make some of the wild cards back.

Have fun and enjoy the game, its better then being Platinum but hating it.

1 CMC Pillars of the Format

Some of the most important cards in a format are the ones that can start changing the game on its first turn or for very little investment. These cards often have an outsized impact on the types of decks that can reasonably compete in a format. We see this in how green shifts to ramp and monsters decks when mana dorks are printed, or in Modern's collection of green artifact decks with Ancient Stirrings. But what about Pioneer? This post will cover the types of 1 CMC cards available to each color and the types of decks these cards will push. I will bold the card I think will have the most influence on its color.

####White

  • Savannah Lions: These cards are 2/1s with upside. There are a large number of these and they definitely push white towards White Weenie
    • Kytheon, Hero of Akroas
    • Dauntless Bodyguard
    • Mardu-Woe Reaper
    • Soldier of the Pantheon
    • Skymarcher Aspirant
    • Dryad Militant
    • Expedition Envoy
    • Loyal Pegasus
    • Venerable Knight
    • Dragon Hunter
  • Sigarda's Aid: One of the strongest pieces of aura and equipment strategies printed in recent years, this most notably combos with Colossal Hammer
  • Ethereal Armor: A key piece for boggles and heroic strategies
  • Silence: Combo support
  • God's Willing: Another enabler for heroic strategies
  • Legion's Landing: A go-wide aggro payoff and enabler
  • Brave the Elements: A mono-white aggro payoff
  • Defiant Strike: A heroic enabler and cheap cantrip
  • Thraben Inspector: A do-all enabler for a lot of strategies:
    • Humans
    • Artifacts
    • Vehicles
  • Myth Realized: A prowess style spells-payoff
  • Judge's Familiar: While white, more of a mono-blue card
  • Toolcraft Exemplar: Not technically a Savannah Lion, but better in an artifact or vehicle deck
  • Chained to the Rocks: Premium removal for Boros
  • Boros Elite: Another aggro card situationally better than a Savannah Lions
  • Deafening Silence: Combo hate

Conclusion: White doesn't have great control enablers, notably lacking a one-mana interactive spell like Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares. Instead, most of its equity is on aggro and specifically on decks playing a lot of small creatures ('White Weenie'). There is also some support for boggles, vehicles, and artifacts. Thraben Inspector stands out for its potential to help decks other than aggro, though it isn't a terrible card in those archetypes as well.

####Blue

  • Opt: The format's cantrip
  • Dispel: Sideboard tech
  • Spell Pierce: Perhaps the best

The Darkness Upon La Muerte Del Cielo

I was going to die. I’d never been more certain of anything else in my life.

As I looked out onto the moonlit water, eyes wide with shock and tears, I felt such an utter hopelessness in my soul. There was no trace of the boat in the distance. No sign of the storm that had ripped it apart. All of it was gone now, leaving only me on a desolate beach.

In the back of my mind, I wondered if anyone else had survived. Our Photographer, Kevin had been in excellent shape, and he’d told us he knew these waters well. But if he’d survived the storm, I hadn’t seen any trace of him or our little yachts modest crew. The only one I had seen was Laura, one of the other models. She lay dead a short distance down the beach.

The mirror like surface of the ocean waxed and waned, daring itself closer to me. The salt water covered my feet and my own tears fell down to join the ocean. The air was surprisingly cold, and for a moment I wished that it had been anything but a swimwear shoot, so at least I’d have something to keep me warm.

We were only supposed to be out for a few hours, get some pictures, and go back. Kevin had said he’d known a beautiful untouched island that would look great in the background shots.

I never expected I’d die there.

I stood up, taking one last look at infinity, spanning out before me, before I turned to see what awaited me on the island. Lush, thick greenery, but silence otherwise. I wondered what was hidden inside the veil of vegetation. Food? Fresh water? Or just my death.

Even though I knew there was nothing left for me on the beach, I was afraid to leave it. Sitting there and feeling miserable wasn’t going to save me, but what if some survivors arrived? I’d been thinking about survivors for almost an hour by that point… Even if it was unlikely, I still had some hope. Besides, I was so tired and the idea of wandering around alone in those trees when I was worn out and unprepared seemed like a bad idea.

With no other options, I went down the beach, looking for the beaten up yellow Dinghy I’d arrived in. I had to pass Laura’s body to get there, and I tried not to gag when I saw crabs picking at her… God… I didn’t want to think about that.

The dinghy was in terrible shape, but it was shelter. I hauled it away from the water and closer to the land before dropping it hopelessly on the ground again. I hadn’t gotten very far, but it would have to do.

It wasn’t much for shelter, but it was better than nothing.

The night before, I slept in a

They Said They Pity Me

I told my parents that I didn’t believe in TSCC anymore earlier and they told me that they pity me. It’s 2:41am currently, my parents and I had a discussion about why I don’t believe; It lasted 3 hours.

warning this is really long & mainly just topics I brought up during the discussion we had

The first thing they said is that they pity me. They pity my lack of testimony. My lack of faith and hope. They pity the fact that I have these concerns in the first place. Pity because I’m “searching for reasons to not believe anymore”.

  1. I brought up polygamy and polyandry and they said I shouldn’t concern myself with old matters of the church. So, I brought up the current contradictions of supposed “revelation” with the retraction of the term Mormon and asked if Hinkley was constantly working with Satan, since he decided to rebrand churchgoers as such. They had no words for that.

  2. I mentioned how there’s no evidence supporting any great battle or animals that JS describes in his holy book of cons. Dad tries to argue with “Well, We’ve found Native American weapons and such from before colonial America was formed..” but the BOM’s events supposedly predate that, do they not? He also mentioned legend of people being visited by “pure men of light”. I think he meant the conquistadors.. who’s helmets and armor often times reflected the sun and made it seem like they were emitting light and were considerably lighter skinned than the natives of Latin and North America.

  3. I brought up TSCC’s hypocrisy regarding LGBT+ rights, their involvement in Prop 8, 2015 “revelation”, etc. They immediately started asking if I had that idea because of my own sexual orientation at my age. (I have never been attracted to men; Trust me, I’ve tried. I identify as a lesbian & have a girlfriend who is also LDS). They just brought up how the church believes family should be man and woman. To which I refuted that there is a reason church and state are separated, so, why is the church attempting to force those who don’t believe to conform to their ideas. TSCC hates it when “the world” tries to do the same to them. (Don’t dish it out if you can’t take a hot plate thrown right back at you).

  4. Brought up The Second Anointing and how the mere idea basically nulls the reason of the atonement. Neither of them even knew it was a thing that EXISTED, so we moved on very quickly.

  5. Mentioned how TSCC’s main goal is: families are forever— get sealed on earth or your family won’t be to

Howdy y'all! Wanted to get one big main post up so here it is! The sets will ship disassembled, and while I spent a lot of time inventorying all the parts, I am only human. I'm open to offers, and if you think something is priced too high, let me know! I based my pricing on whats sold recently, and whats currently available. Buyer pays shipping. None of the sets have their instruction booklets.

As far as trades go, I'm open to considering anything star wars OT, Prequel, CW, or Rogue One and maybe some cool fantasy era stuff! Here's my more specific wanted lists:

*** If you have any SW (or castle helmets) minifig parts I'd definitely consider them! Specifically looking for 212th airborne helmet and BARC clone helmet.

[US - MI] [H] 60+ Minifigs, 40+ sets (half off), and lots of "Fun bags" [W] Paypal or a very few select trades

Hey everyone,

&nbsp;

Big amount of stuff to sell! 60+ minifigs! 40+ sets! And a few fun bags!

&nbsp;

The sets are all half off. So look at the price and cut it in half! (sorry, same doesn’t go for minifigs or the fun bags). Please feel free to send any questions. I will be checking my reddit account today every two hours to respond and do paypal stuff. If we settle before 10pm tonight, I can ship early tomorrow morning. Also the last three pictures (Harry potter keychains, and random pieces) are all free with purchases. Just pick an item or two depending on how much you sell.

&nbsp;

Please feel free to send me an offer if you think something is overpriced. I am willing to cut deals most of the time, and I am willing to work with people!

&nbsp;

https://imgur.com/a/yenJINH

&nbsp;

For the sets here is the document that shows which pieces are missing. Just click the document, and then search for the set number and it will give you a list with pictures (bricklink style). If you decide to purchase something, I will make a pdf of the set(s) and which pieces are missing and will email that to you. I have done this a few times and it seems to help! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DO4lxcgvO_UQ5XZVbP03C-46YAvoDQ2G/view?usp=sharing

&nbsp;

Please note shipping cost is not included. Just depends on what you purchase. I try and stick with flat rate, so it depends on which box I have to use. Usually goes around $5.50, $8.50, $15.50, and $21.50. I do my best to get you the best deal!

[Guía] Queres aprender a usar diana? o consejos de Diana? entra aca wachin

Hola, este va a ser mi primer post en reddit, sepan disculpar si algo queda inconcluso y si tienen dudas dejenlas abajo si sé la respuesta les contesto, si no la se alguien mas seguro lo hace, sientanse libres en preguntar n.n

Bueno, como dice Nick vamos a lo que nos compete, quiero hacer esta guia para aquel que quiera aprender a jugar diana, desde que hacen las habilidades, combos basicos, builds y algun que otro consejo que pueda dar, de lo que voy a hablar es sobre lo que pude rescatar en casi 300 games esta season con diana entre flex, normal y soloq, si bien soy un oro pete espero les pueda servir a alguno.

https://preview.redd.it/nxcnb9rnrru41.png?width=393&format=png&auto=webp&s=e2d71fb6fe2224b6b892724934fa047f588c1111

  • Habilidades

PASIVA: Cada 3er ataque Diana realiza un ataque basico en area inflingiendo daño adicional, otra parte que no todos saben es que posterior a castear una habilidad Diana obtiene un bonus de Attack speed (velocidad de ataque) por los siguientes 3 autoataques.

Q: Lanza una \"medialuna\" de energia lunar que inflige daño y aplica una \"marca de luz\" a los objetivos que esta alcance. Podriamos considerarla la habilidad base.

W: Diana invoca 3 orbes que orbitan a su alrededor ademas de crear un escudo que absorbe daño, cada vez que uno de estos orbes golpee a una unidad enemiga (subditos, campeones o campamentos de la jungla) aplicara daño, si el tercera orbe explota, el escudo adquiere fuerza adicional.

Diana realiza un DASH e inflige daño hacia una unidad enemiga, si diana salta a una unidad afectada por la marca de la Q su E \"impulso lunar\" reestablece su enfriamiento pero desaparece la marca lunar de los demas enemigos afectados, punto muy importante a tener en cuenta.

[R: Diana REVELA(esto no mucha gente sabe) y atrae a los enemigos cercanos ademas de aplicarles un slow. Si diana atrae a uno o mas enemigos despues de un periodo de tiempo explota inflingiendo daño mag

Filling in empty map space way down the line with new factions ( dlc far away )

Another post we talked and well here it is It’s gonna get long here but bam lets go , for new factions added to current map we have I’d go with the obvious empty parts of maps being filled , we got a huge swathe of land to the south east part of map , we have a large island cluster beside west coast vlandia ,and a big island To the north of sturgia (prob the nords home land ) , a small cluster in the middle sea , and a large land mass /dessert to the south west beneath Aserai . This leaves 5 Easy to fill areas to add new factions too. Update had stuff to do but here we go 1. South east part of map , I would have this be your Carthage type civilization ( would be a trading mercenary army with dessert/ East blended with Greek vibes) would play as being originally a trading empire from some where made into its own thing over time through wealth , read Carthage and Punic wars to get idea of civ style and army ( hoplite elite inf greek , bedoin and Numidian type light cav and skirmish cav and skirmishers , mercenary’s and should have like a marine type infantry shock troop with throwing and sword focus ( would love if navy was in game ) at This point. Cities would focus on coast and maybe some islands close by. 2. Right beside vlandia in those islands I think should be Portuguese/ Spanish influence as a very progressive think flamboyant if you will dress and attitude , think conquistadors and Swiss guard type gear and style , your pole arm and crossbow focus especially 2 handed halbedier type weapons and kettles , crossbows would be range focus ( gunpowder if added in limitation ) But yeah think early renaissance and Spanish conquistador , ( this faction could be moved and also maybe get a holding on the main land a tad where vlandia is now. 3. Land north of sturgia , well now this is hard since clearly they have a Viking Esq already in and nords in game sort of in lore , umm so I was thinking we take inspiration from the Kiev , Proto Russian kingdoms ( they were ruled by saxons I think that came with elite soldiers and set up small kingdoms in Russia ), they are the ones who supplied the first Varangian guard to the Byzantines so there elite are your rich bejeweled Vikings style very heavy armor , now they do use horse lancers more , style would be more Russian than Norse. I need help with this one not much I got . 4. Now we hav

[Guide] Conquistador's Beginner's Guide & Early Game Tier List - Phoenix Edition (October 4th, 2019)

Obligatory "thanks for the gold!" My first one :D

Everyone has seen the Tier List(s), but for those who are just starting out, getting a team full of powerful E5 units is not a realistic short term goal. So this list attempts to bridge the gap for those who are just starting the game.

First off, sorry PvP players! But PvE is definitely the early game priority. Building a PvE team early will get you further in Aspen, get you more fodder from Seal Land, more guild coins, make more progress in broken spaces and is just better for overall account progression. This guide will be primarily PvE focused. PvP is the domain of late game teams and heavy spenders.

I am open to feedback if anyone has more first hand experience with any of the Heroes on this list.

This guide has gotten so long I've needed to split several less important sections into follow-up comments due to post length restrictions. Links are provided for convenience!

#Change Log v2.1 (2019-10-04)

  • Monster improvements: Introduction of Phoenix, increased level cap, more static stats
  • Reworked Seal Land section due to various changes
  • Added Gustin (E3 & E5 Support) and Nakia (Maybe E3 Support)
  • Moved Skerei to the Support section
  • Moved Sigmund to the Support section
  • Moved Ormus up to the E3 & E5 Support tier
  • Moved Flame Strike down to the 10* support tier
  • Moved Barea down to the 10* support tier
  • Moved Blood Blade down to the 10* support tier

The Darkness Upon La Muerte Del Cielo

I was going to die. I’d never been more certain of anything else in my life.

As I looked out onto the moonlit water, eyes wide with shock and tears, I felt such an utter hopelessness in my soul. There was no trace of the boat in the distance. No sign of the storm that had ripped it apart. All of it was gone now, leaving only me on a desolate beach.

In the back of my mind, I wondered if anyone else had survived. Our Photographer, Kevin had been in excellent shape, and he’d told us he knew these waters well. But if he’d survived the storm, I hadn’t seen any trace of him or our little yachts modest crew. The only one I had seen was Laura, one of the other models. She lay dead a short distance down the beach.

The mirror like surface of the ocean waxed and waned, daring itself closer to me. The salt water covered my feet and my own tears fell down to join the ocean. The air was surprisingly cold, and for a moment I wished that it had been anything but a swimwear shoot, so at least I’d have something to keep me warm.

We were only supposed to be out for a few hours, get some pictures, and go back. Kevin had said he’d known a beautiful untouched island that would look great in the background shots.

I never expected I’d die there.

I stood up, taking one last look at infinity, spanning out before me, before I turned to see what awaited me on the island. Lush, thick greenery, but silence otherwise. I wondered what was hidden inside the veil of vegetation. Food? Fresh water? Or just my death.

Even though I knew there was nothing left for me on the beach, I was afraid to leave it. Sitting there and feeling miserable wasn’t going to save me, but what if some survivors arrived? I’d been thinking about survivors for almost an hour by that point… Even if it was unlikely, I still had some hope. Besides, I was so tired and the idea of wandering around alone in those trees when I was worn out and unprepared seemed like a bad idea.
