If you have been eyeing the Encyclopedia or other expensive items, this might be your last chance to get them "affordably" for a while. Even if the prices seem high now, they are sure to rise with rising interest in the franchise. Just my 2c.
I don't think we ever saw Trin read those books and I think a stable, bought, and paid for trailer would have been way better than some books IMO.
Back in the '90s and '00s they sold for example the Encyclopedia Britannica for $2k. Today it's going for 5% of that. I recommend buying one. Add it to your stores.
It's good knowledge, it won't get wiped when the next CME hits, and it's better than wikipedia in certain regards.

I was looking at u/chunkyboymania's post about the International Discography for New Wave, hoping to start scanning the entries for a lead, when I had an idea.
Page 5 lists all the people who contributed to this book, organized by their country of origin. Now, I'm sure no one in the band who made TMS is on this list, BUT, there's a good chance some of these people - particularly those from the countries in E. Europe we're focused on - might have some ideas and may have even heard TMS before! So, I was thinking, if we could possibly find a way to contact any of these contributors and ask them for info, it could point us in the right direction. I know it sounds next to impossible to contact someone just based on their name and country, but maybe we could try, if you guys think it's a good idea.
Here are some of the contributors from the countries we're looking at. The stuff... keep reading on reddit ➡
I saw a few posts regarding the book, Encyclopedia of 5000 spells, by Judila Illes and I do have a PDF version of the book incase anyone is interested. Someone said they couldn't afford it so I'm happy to share this with you, but the link is not attaching to my post for some reason so either comment or message me if you would like me to share it with you!

You have room in your BOB/BOV for one 1" 3 ring binder. You have unlimited access to the open internet as it exists at the time of this posting. What do you print off and store in this binder to ensure you can do all the things that you find necessary for your prepping situation? You have roughly 187 pages, front and back, to save your ass.
maintenance manuals for any firearms you may have. Nothing like destroying the pins on your Glock because you caveman-ed it instead of watching youtube video.
topographical map of the area surrounding your BOL. If you want to get real fancy you can get the roads printed on transparencies so you can draw routes/watch posts/etc without ruining the map.
how to make and maintain a sourdough starter. I'm a carb slut and would die if I couldn't make some type of bread.
storage tables (type of storage and shelf life for each type) for any food you may have/find/raise/grow at your BOL.

“The Preparedness Encyclopedia is a comprehensive and portable collection of crucial information designed exclusively to assist in your survival from any catastrophe that may arise and to assist in the rebuilding of society afterwards.”
I've been working on this personal preparedness guide almost every day since June 2017 when I started prepping and wanted a collection of information in a single document on my phone. It has grown substantially over time and now contains over 3.45 million words, so I decided to share it with the public. I designed the PDF to easily be put on a mobile device and forgotten until needed and can be searched for any particular needs during disasters.
The current release is version 8.05 and can be downloaded from my website at: http://fluidicice.com/TPE.html. (55.5mb)
Version 8 features the conversion of the rest of the guide to the new, larger and easier to read style. A title page was added to make it feel more like a bo... keep reading on reddit ➡
So many great detective and adventure books for children that many of us read as kids. Did you read any of these growing up? I myself read Hardy Boys and Boxcar Children but actually my favorite book as a kid was the Hank the Cowdog series. Have you heard of that? Such a good series about Hank (a cowdog) that lived on a ranch with his owner and dog friends and they solved mysteries revolving around the ranch itself or amongst their ranks. It was so entertaining to the 9 to 12 year old versions of myself.
I've recently stumbled upon this book written by Luigi Serafini in 1981. It is an encyclopedia of unknown things, written in a "fantasy language" that no one was able to decode yet. It contains a lot of strange and detailed images, some remind me a lot about aliens like this one. Reminds me of the shapeshifting reptilians a bit. Or this
There are also a lot of pictures abput animals or humans as we know them, but... Different. Or just plain weird shit like this

I have a collection from my grandfather of these books. They are more decoration then anything else at this point being 60 years old. I don't want to just throw them away but I don't particularly want to keep them anymore since they take up a lot of space that I could use for books I want too keep.
Selling them seems like a lot of work for not a lot of reward cause even if i sell them for $5 each it may end up being $250 while that isn't a small amount of money the effort and time to offload the books doesn't justify it to me.
What options do I have?
If this isn't allowed let me know where it would be better suited
I remember first doing this when I was 5 or 6 years old. My co-op had just hosted a book fair, and my mom brought back quite the haul. Among her findings were three or four well-illustrated encyclopedias.
Needless to say, I quickly fell in love with this kind of all-encompassing educational resource. I remember the first article in our Usborne Science Encyclopedia was “Atoms.” I learned all about protons and neutrons and electrons and could not wait to tell everyone and their mom about it. And then I did the same thing with our Wildlife Encyclopedia. To this day, I can vividly remember the layout and design of the four-page entry on octopi. One of the photos was of a little transparent embryonic octopus, and I just thought it was so cute. I told everyone at the family dinner that night what I had read about octopi, and you can bet your bottom dollar I was quoting that shit word-for-word.

I have been reading and taking notes on OneNote for multiple region guides over the past few months, and was wondering if anyone would be interested to have access to this particular notebook.
It would of course be without writing rights, but so far, i have compiled all descriptions for landscapes, notable places, notable characters along with NPC stat blocks for Wilderland and Mirkwood. I am also planning to update it with the other regions as i read through them and it will most likely contain informations about the different campaign i will be running.
If any of you want the link, hit me up in dms or leave a message down below!
Edit2: In the notable characters pages, blue means neutral, red means enemy, green means friendly. Keep in mind that these will be updated to reflect my campagins so its possible that a neutral becomes an enemy or a friendly and vice versa

Nooks selling unlimited books today (encyclopedia with the butterflies), to go along with the books, I am also offering crafting service for stacks of books and wooden bookshelf.
Materials for each DIY:
|Stack of books||5 books|
|Wooden bookshelf||5 books||10 wood (regular wood)|
If interested, please comment approx. how many books you are buying (since at Nooks only 1 person can buy books at a time, so if you are buying a pocket full, I will only allow one person on the island, so it is quicker and less interference from others flying in and out).
Please bring enough materials if you want me to craft as I am all out of wood, so unfortunately I cannot help you out if you need wood. Would appreciate any wood or hardwood that you can spare.
Hey guys! I was thinking about doing a little found footage/mockumentary encylcopedia here on this thread in order that everyone looking for one to watch can found it. I'll start myself with a couple entries, but I'll leave the others to you!
LAKE MUNGO (Directed by Joel Anderson, 2008, Australia) An underrated mockumentary that will give you chills for days regarding the drowning of a teenager and the strange events sorrounding the aftermatht of her death that will cause her family to find out dark secrets from her past and about her death. A well crafted psychological horror with one of the best jumpscare of the genre.
EXISTS (Directed by Eduardo Sánchez, 2014, USA) An interesting little flick about the Bigfoot, fairly interesting in the first half. The ending suffers from his found footage fornat and, probably, could have worked far better as a traditional movie.
I've been working on a website to catalog historical college football records and thought I would share the Husker page here: https://cfbpedia.com/Nebraska_Cornhuskers
If you check the page source for the website, you might see my Husker bias ;)
I've put links to YouTube games next to the game record if you want to watch and relive the glory days.
Also if you go to the home page to view a list of the all time records for all teams and sort by "Points For" you can see that the Huskers have scored the most points in all of college football since 1978 (the Div I split), right ahead of some Sooner team (never really heard of them).
I hope to keep adding information to the site, like conference data, in the near future. Hope you enjoy!

Hello booklovers, just had some questions about reading the encyclopedia britannica. Due to a variety of reasons, which i guess can be summed up in the words aspergers, ocd, perfectionist and completionist, I've started thinking about reading this encyclopedia from A-Z. Problem is however, that I don't much like the idea of carrying around the actual set of books, which is outdated anyways, since i like reading comfortably in bed with my light and convenient Ereader.
So I was wondering if it is possible to read the complete encyclopedia on some sort of reading device, either Ereader, ipad, or light laptop, that would be light and convenient and preferably with a screen good on the eye.
SUMMARY OF CONCEPT: Basically, my idea is to create a game that acts like an encyclopedia for game mechanics. Maybe less of a game and more of a database of implemented game mechanics for a specific game engine.
OVERVIEW: This idea is very similar to tutorial projects offered by game engines, but with a lot more information due to crowdsourcing, and a modular design for easy adding and removing of game mechanics. This idea could be replicated across several different game engines, all under the same name and ideology. To better relay this concept, imagine that the concepts I lay out will be developed in the UE4 game engine.
THE IDEA: The main design of this game would be to create a core with a very fundamental design that could be used to develop larger concepts. All larger concepts would be modular so that they can be plugged into the base game to add functionality. The concepts would be created around the idea of implementing common video game mechanics and attempts at emulating r... keep reading on reddit ➡

Very dangerous, will kidnap and rape. Very dangerous, will kidnap and rape. Very dangerous, will kidnap and rape. Near enough every single page of MGE volume 1 has the same warning. I don't think it's very fair, and from what I've seen it's not true.
I'm setting forth, on a safari with a difference, to give Monster Girls a second chance.
Hey, so if you've ever given the MGE a read then you'll know that it's kind of dark and has a hell of a lot of rape. Now maybe it's just me but I don't think that so many would be like that. Dominant for sure, but not stupid. I don't know anyone who'd fall for their rapist, no matter how good the sex is.
I like most MGs but I'll just name some I'd love to research. Holstaur, Lamia, Dullahan, Hellhound, Slime, Mermaid, Harpie, Oni, Minotaur, Weresheep, Kitsune, Neko, Angel, Demon, Dragoness, Manticor, Sphinx, Okami, Dryad, Cyclops, Elf, Shoggoth, and Amazonian.

Pod Awful- Question: what would happen if the combined power of Rucka Rucka Ali and Maddox was even less funny? You'd get Pod Awful, the worst possible way to kill two hours. This show is only funny if your sense of humor is overblown edgy shit with zero self-awareness. The wittiest thing to come out of host Jesse P-S's mouth is Maddox's micropenis. Pod Awful is the most notable show on the network outside of Biggest Temper Tantrum in the Universe. Why? Not because it's funny, that's for sure. Jesse fucked over Maddox and threw all their sponsorship deals away because he called a mutual friend of Maddox and Dick a nword (im not getting banned for that) for starting his own podcast, not doing it with Madcast Media, and giving Maddox a cut of his revenue (it's fine though because Maddox's girlfriend said [she likes when people call her a n](https://twitter.... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm not a comedian, but i absolutely in love with stand-up comedy from all over the world. The thing is, a lot of great comedians are "unknown" to me. I'm from Poland and standup comedy pretty much came to us few years ago. (We had standup comedians earlier, but now it get's more into mainstream).
Therefore, there's no much websites etc about standup. I watch a lot on youtube and netflix, but it's not enough for me. I would like to learn more.
Is there any website about standup? Something like a wikipedia about comedy?
Something where i could find new (for me) comedians, but also check their "bio" or "discography" special-like?
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question. If not, feel free to delete my post.
I’m crafting a lot of bookshelves and since I can only order 5 books a day from my catalogue it’s really slowing down the process.
