What Have You Done? Soarin`WonderboltCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42144311

The Wonderbolts theme I made is still not fixed. I have not forgiven this transgression. Sleep with one eye open mods.

What theme do you use?

Also, tell me about what is new in your lives? Been a while since I've seen y'all.

I think my monitor is generally set darker than most have it.

Not much to be honest, my life hasn't really changed in the past eight years.

Work's rather easy at the moment, working from home and with the economic situation being as it is there's not much to do.

More time to work on my RPG campaigns.

How are things on your end?

>>42144320
Do you feel like you're as effective working from home? I feel like my productivity dropped off by like half... I feel a bit guilty about it, but I know my coworkers are feeling the same way at least.

What are the RPG campaigns?

I am going through an interesting time of simultaneously feeling the worst I ever have, but also finding comfort in finally understanding why I think and feel the way I do. It has at least left a path open to hope to crawl my way out of the abyss. If that makes any sense.

>>42144321
It definitely has. The main reason is that the connection to work networks is real terrible. And working from a laptop sucks compared to having a proper workstation. Generally I save up all the main work fro when I'm at the office (we're in a two-weeks rotation home and at the office).

It's a for a German tabletop RPG system I've been playing for two decades. Got a bi-monthly session going with my friends. Preparation work for a campaign takes me up many months till everything is ready. So I tend to work ahead a lot.

Sounds like you're struggling with a depression there of sorts.

Are German tabletops that different from other cultures? I guess I never even thought about that before.

>>42144325
Yeah, it seems so. I have no bad feeling about it though. =P

This particular one is extremely detailed in every sense of the word. It's not like D&D where you can just make up your own stuff. In this game you'd have to check a dozen sources if you're not breaking canon left and right by just creating a village.

I had struggles with depressions myself when I was younger.

Do you prefer working on older or newer style cars?

Random question. My car alarm has been going off during thunderstorms, but also, the back lift glass is stuck. Would you guess it's the glass or pressure changes causing it to go off randomly?

The void, the chasm, the abyss, the underworld... I find hope in knowing that i realize where I have been. I am glad to hear you made it out of there.

>>42144327
Bad feeling how so?

So, you have to follow a specific storyline? That seems difficulty to not break canon but also allow for creative paths forward. Never played anything like D&D so I probably just lack foresight into what is possible.

"Had" is the best word in that sentence.

I meant that I don't feel bad one bit about working less. =P

The game lore has (or had) a living history. There are bi-monthly official newspapers released that tell what's going on in the game world for example. One year in-game is one year in real life in that regard. I learned that one of my favorite towns in-game was destroyed by orcs two years ago for example... which kinda sucks.

Yeah, absolutely.

Always older cars, as I can usually go to a junkyard and find replacement parts for cheap.
Not to mention, newer cars have so many electronic sensors put in them that its creating new problems to deal with.
Doesn't matter if the engines good when your entire nav console shorts out.

Interesting question. I'm not sure.
My guess is, if the glass is stuck, the weatherstrip might not be absorbing vibrations adequately.

Having an epiphany of the cause is a strong defense, but I could always be pulled back in,

>>42144357
What kind of parts are best to get from a junkyard?

My dash gives warnings of the gate being open when it's clearly not and the lift glass doesn't even click when unlocking. Going to start with checking the fuse and then physically taking the back door apart to see if anything looks amiss.

I am of the opinion that you should expect to be pulled back in, that way you can take the correct course of action when it does. Life is tough and inevitably the next catastrophe will come. Be it by chance or - in eventually, your own mortality - the storm will come. Best to start preparing now.

Idk, starshine made it. I think its suppose to just be a dark theme, and it works with the rest of the themes on my phone.

I dont think imgoing to do a furnace. I think im going to dona wood stove, with individual water heaters on each faucet.
I might do a wood fired whole house furnace though, im not sure.

Ah, i wasn't sure if I was missing out on something.

I used to go to a cabin heated by a pot belly stove every year. I loved it up there but apparently those things can be dangerous? Maybe it is just people that don't know what they are doing. Doing water heaters on each faucet sounds good. That was a huge pain having to spend time to heat up water for everything.

Any other house projects?

Usually cosmetic replacements.
Door handles, latches, lights, window mechanisms, seats, buttons, weather strips.
If its in the junkyard, whatever is in the engine bay is probably junk.

I don't know what car you have, but you may be able to find a new latch mechanism if thats the problem. It also might be a unhooked/tugged wire.

Oh it'll happen again, I'm sure. I try and take solace in the fact that I've done that song and dance of darkness so many times already. I feel tougher now. You can't hit rock bottom twice.
Well at least I hope not.

It cant be any more dangerous than the open fireplace i have been using haha. Ive been playing with fire my whole life, so im pretty okay with it, as long as its installed correctly there isnt much more danger posed than any other furnace, maybe even less so.

The direct water heaters i think will save money as they will be on demand, rather than keeping a tank warm even when im not using it.

Im mostly focused on my yard and garden atm. Fixing up an old shed and thinking about building a dock.

Not much, been brainstorming a fantasy story for a while now and since I do my best thinking when I am being physically active I've been working out quite a bit and risking heatstroke in the process.

I have learned that my depression was caused, at a fundamental level, by the lack of meaning in life. That meaning is found through responsibility and once I find something to be responsible for that I can start to expand my realm of responsibility to help others. To my family, to my friends, and perhaps eventually to my surrounding community. That i have major anxiety that I used to cure through vigorous exercise but haven't done so for many years. Finally, that I must redirect my negative suicidal thoughts to a positive outlook. Often times our thoughts become self fulfilling prophecies. When you start to succeed you succeed more and more, but the converse is also true. Therefore the best path forward is be more positive.

Saturday is a good day to be unproductive!

>What are you doing to be physically active?

My usual routine is some light lifting and calisthenics for a warmup, then an hour or two of beating on the pell, which is basically a punching bag but for melee weapons with everything from knives and entrenching tools to swords and spears. The smaller weapons generally require more body movement and thus make for a more general, aerobic workout while the latter, having greater reach and leverage, work the upper body a bit more but require less energy overall.
Once I get too hot I will hop in the pool and doggy-paddle around for half an hour to 40 minutes to cool down.
I try to do that at least once a day, sometimes two or three times if I'm feeling particularly motivated. I find that using that time for brainstorming also helps keep my motivation up. Sometimes I will wear my fencing jacket and breeches to really up the sweat factor, they being equivalent to heavy winter clothing and sometimes I will just wear shorts, shoes and gauntlets.

>What fantasy?


Just a generic Tolkien/D&D-esque fantasy/adventure story. I started on the idea while reading up on the history of this area during the revolutionary war era. See, at that time the west branch of the Susquehanna river formed the border of the European colonial area with a string of small timber forts on the east bank and everything from the west bank all the way out to Fort Pitt(Pittsburgh) being Indian territory. Some interesting things were happening around there back then, one being the "Fair Play Men" and their declaration of Independence:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_Play_Men
And the Big Runaway:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Runaway

So that and a few other things got me thinking about a story where Adventurers, outlaws and common folk set out from an old, established kingdom into the wild lands beyond in search of riches and glory or just a (hopefully)peaceful life away from all the kingdom's bullshit.
In this instance the Northern Wilds had once been a Dwarven kingdom until some sort of necromantic cataclysm killed 9/10 of them, filling their underground cities with swarms of undead and causing those few who survived to bury the cities entrances and scatter to the four winds. The cities lay mostly lost and forgotten for a couple centuries. Prior to humans moving into the area recently the only living people around were the odd, roaming packs of Wolfmen and Goblins(who generally don't get along very well).
But then somebody realized that those dead, Dwarven cities contained vast quantities of wealth, causing a "gold rush" as adventurers started trying to sniff them out and common folk who would have been serfs in the kingdom moved into the lowlands and built farms and villages as freemen.
The story(such as it is) follows a teenage farmgirl as she joins a group of adventurers, goes delving into underground ruins full of undead, gets into conflict with other adventurers, experiences her first love, gets caught up in a cataclysm that sees her and everyone she knows have to evacuate first into the kingdom who doesn't really want them and then out into unknown territory and may or may not end with a happily-ever-after. Haven't quite gotten that far yet.

Holy shit it's Soarin. I remember you, though I went by a different name all those years ago.

Responsible for you, at the very least. You can't start without that one.

It is either that or a darker outcome! So one would hope.

>>42144653
That looks great! I will have to take pictures of my garden soon to share as well.

>>42144699
That is a good amount of exercise! I think that is very important during these times.

Do you plan on running a dnd campaign based off this soon?

>>42144700
I am probably a different Soarin than you remember unfortunately. I was never liked that much. But I hope the Soarin mod comes back some day so that you can see him again.

>>42144775
Yes, I must start with being responsible for myself... yet, a very large part of me doesn't want to... due to thoughts that I am not worthy. I will never be worth enough or sufficient to save others. Therefore I would be better off through removal. The simplest solution is often times the best.

Probably not, I lack the attention span for that sort of thing. I just like to plot stories, characters and settings. Also I work outdoors year-round so exercise isn't really a problem. I did have some time off when the covid thing started but as I am an introvert and hoarder I was not even slightly inconvenienced and spent the time working on some new projects and improving my win-rate in World of Warships. Been back to work for a while now and we're coming onto the busiest days of the year this week.

This is my pell:
Is a ~3' long, ~8" diameter hickory log. Weighs somewhere between 10 and 15 pounds. I have the picture gymnasium saber, then I have several heavy plastic and wooden training swords and a 0.75" diameter, 30" long section of stainless steel round stock which approximates the weight of an M16a4(~8 pounds) and can be wielded like a mokuju or a very, very heavy longsword and will do horrible, horrible things to your lats and intercostal muscles if you are not careful.

You have such great interests and passions! How did you come about those? I hope someday I can have such interests as yoyu.

I've been obsessive about weapons and martial arts since I was a wee spawn. I blame 80's action movies and TV shows. You start buying that sort of thing and before you know it it's just completely subsumed your life.

Yes, I learned in Boy Scouts. Though I'd need some practice to hit the high notes reliably as I haven't practiced in ages. I also learned the Bosun's pipe as my Scoutmaster was a Navy vet.

That one is a Rexcraft Regulation Field Trumpet M1892. Probably from about 1940's. In "G." It was considered a trumpet when first developed because it has a tuning slide but since "trumpets" have evolved to have more valves and hit more notes since then it's typically classed as a bugle now.
Then there's the three-turn Bugle in "Bb" of unknown manufacture. Is presumably ex-military or Scouts or something judging by the copious dents and dings but oddly has no markings.
Then there's the M1894 "Trench" Bugle in "Bb" it was made by J.W. York and Sons for the Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot 7-11-1917. Though this model is often associated with the first world war, hence the unofficial "trench" moniker. this style of small, 3-turn bugle were originally developed as signal horns for bicyclists which I'm sure annoyed absolutely nobody. They are still used as the "horn" symbol on car steering wheels today.

Finally, not pictured I have an India-made British Model of 1855 Duty Bugle. Typically called a "Gunga-Din" bugle After the film of the same name which is loosely based on the Rudyard Kipling poem. They can inevitably be found in any American Civil War themed giftshop as they vaguely resemble the French Clairon actually used by troops in the ACW though the Clairon is a fair bit larger. They are typically untuned and tinny-sounding but with a good quality mouthpiece they make serviceable beater-bugles.

Is it hard to adjust to weekends to go out? There's plenty of morning life things to enjoy during the week I think!

>>42145046
Yeah, I can understand that... I miss it honestly.

I work most weekends! I don't actually know my schedule week to week.

I should wake up earlier.

I always feel much better later in the day when I wake up earlier. Those first few hours are tough. It's hard to resist that instant gratification of sleeping more.

>>42145113
This! How do y'all even function!? I am irate!

>>42145114
The titles for posts are a weird red color. I can't remember what I designed them as originally but post titles should be either a yellow or blue. I think I went with yellow. The red throws off the whole feel of the theme and I am deeply upset.

I'd like to do that more. I don't work until 2pm so I have been getting up at noon and I noticeably sleep a lot worse.
