2023.03.30 20:45 Capn-Zack Skull Tree too small? I have the solution!

I keep seeing post after post, YouTube video after video saying that the skill tree is too small. Well, after some careful consideration and analysis, I’ve come up with a solution that may solve the problem for everyone without having to change too much:
Just make the icons for everything on the skill tree bigger!
Seriously tho, there are at least 24 skills for every class, each with 3 modifiers, and a ton of passives to further modify your character ON TOP of having cool legendaries and paragon boards.
The Barbarian alone has 124 nodes on their skill tree. The Barbarian from Diablo 2 had 30. Just 30. And most of those were passives.
There is a ton of flexibility in this game to have unique builds that all can work. It’s easy to understand for the casual people that just want to do cool stuff without being constrained to a “build guide” just so they can play the game. There’s also enough depth for the hardcore people to min-max their characters so they can refine their builds for the utmost optimization.
We should let the game come out and actually have play through time with the full kit before we can say something doesn’t work.

2023.03.30 20:33 MafusailTheGreat Essay about the beta state of the game from the aRPG fan.

Being an aRPG fan for more then 20 years, i think i've played all major releases in these times (have you played the second Titan Quest add-on? Well, i did :) ), starting from Diablo 2. I've played D1 only couple of years ago. Enjoyed it from the "touch the history" perspective. And i have some thoughts about the upcoming release. Will (at least) try to hold this theme in a way that common sense dictates. So, let you all be open-minded to another people's opinions, calm down and let's talk.
Due to some IRL stuff i couldnt play all characters, but tried 3.5/5 of them - being the Necromancer, the Sorceress, the Rogue and 0.5 stands for the Big Boi Barbarian, because i've leveled him to some extend, but not to 25 - thus can't say much about build diversity of this particular individual.
And oh boy, i have things to say.
I guess i will start not from pros and cons, but from theme to a theme, and both pros and cons will be inside of each one.
Let's start.


The highly subjective stuff. Keep that in mind.
When D2 came out it revolutionazed the genre, both mechanically and visually. It developed D1 aspects to an extreme extent. People tend to say that D2 graphics are almost ideal. But why? Because this aspect of the game consists of very, very big amount of those big and small things that all make the big picture. Some of them are: color scheme, design and clarity. And all of these 3 are important in the same value.
Diablo 2 had dark color scheme, a medieval visual design with quite some amount of gothic elements and a decent amount of visual clarity on the screen. While playing it you could not only your character, but everything that was happening on the screen. And only in very, very dense situations you started to have problems with it. But that is the problem of every and every aRPG i've played, so i guess this can be considered "a norma".
Path of Exile, for example, also has a dark color scheme, european medieval themed design with aztec elements in it, and visual clarity that bad that developers actually sell a way to diable your auras and skill effects (one per purchase, ofcourse :D) in the game so in the actual fight you can see stuff that is going on.
Diablo 3's color palette was definately more vibrant, colorfull and bright then D2. More... Cartoonish. And that was both good and bad at the same time. Yes, it was new to the player base and a large portion of people did not appreciate that descendance from the roots. *To be honest with you all, i think that a lot of those people cry that D3 is a piece of stinky s**t at every glance of that game being mentioned anywhere in their infofield solely because of this. Two of my friends are guilty of this, and this is fracking embaracing.* BUT it provided the substantial amount of visual clarity to the game. Exactly becuase of the very high visual contrast and adequate mob density, spacing and modeling you always know what is happening on the screen, apart from the same situations you starting to loose visual control in D2 - the extreme density ones with enemies of different size and variety. Visual design of D3 is, to my liking (reminder here - a HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE STUFF), is better then in D2 because of a lot more gothic-styled elements. I just like that.
So, after all that i've said before, visuals of Diablo 4 Act I did not strike my heart. No, visuals are not bad, not at all. I think this is the best i've seen in an industry from the technical point of view. Clutter is scattered not brainlessly, but each item has it's own purpose to not brake the immersion. More on that later. But the color palette is too washed out. The visual design is *just* an european medieval, without any gothic elements whatsoever. It becomes very blunt, tedious pretty fast and apart from one(sic!) dungeon out of what, 20 or something like this, the picture you're looking at blends into one grey mass. Try to name one place that stands out other then that gore-themed dungeon (and last mission of Act I campaign wich is basicly the same place). The visuals of D4 aI are immersive at times, very technically advanced, but dull. Let's see what surprises Kehjistan and Hawezar prepare to us ;)
Yes, that was long enough. Time to continue!

**World building**

When you walk through the city, you suddenly start to believe that actual people are living in the actual damn city. Apart from the New Tristram, for example. Dialogues are placed very immersively. Things you can touch and / or talk to all add another layer. Did you click on that table in the war room when talking to the bald lady with tattoed head (dont remmeber her name)? :) If you do you know that there are a lot of red marks and arrows on that wartable and all of them are pointed towards the "glorious city of Caldeum"! Did you see that Iron Maiden that was present in last mission was actually located before that very same war room and even more - you could talk to a priest standing nearby and ask why the hell this thing is here? He would tell you some interesting things. And those mini-events are spreaded out everywhere. This is how you should make people immersed into your game.
The one thing i'd like this game to get from D3 is different vendor's stories to be tied to the game's lore. I enjoyed having the same Shen and Haedrig from aI to aIV with Myriam joining in aV to the Team Nephalem. Throught the campaign Shen and Headrig had pretty interesting lines to say about the situation. Especially Shen. Well, technincally Shen was from aII but you get the point.
I missed the same in D4. Vendors are just random people without any lore behind them.

**Technical state.**

It was a beta-test, aimed to stress-test the servers and check overall stability of the game. And, at the moment of beta-test, that looked pretty bad to be honestly. Continuous rubber-banding problems and pocket losses. But Blizzard have 2.5 months to fix those problems, and i know that their technical engineers can do really magical stuff sometime. Look at the BfA or Legion starts. They were buttery smooth. Hope dies last, i guess.
But what i do have big concerns, it is about the loading stutters. I guess that is happening because of some problems with asset loading mechanics and that can not be fixed in the time remains before launch. Did not bother me a lot by the way, but a lot of people may (and will) find it frustrating.


I'm not gonna compare it to PoE or even Last Epoch itemisation. If LE's system is not the same league as D4's, then PoE's is not even the same universe. PoE itemisation system is the first one that made me realise that i am too stupid for something.
So, i've found D4's one... Mediocre. At best.
White and blue items were not picked up by anyone even in beta. Even rings and amulets. They will have the same fate as D3 item's do - either left on the floor or straight into the grinder, without looking at the item. Better let it be like in D3's last season lol - let mobs drop salvaging reagents and save us all some time and not braking the combat flow.
The amount of stats on items is very small in both value of sheer numbers and variety. Stats are very, VERY situational, but in my opinion, that is even better then having general CHD / CHC / CDR / Area Damage on every item equipped, like we have in D3. You can either laser-focus your items to your build or make mediocre gear that will work in any situations. In my opinion, this variety is great.
Ookey, and now that part where i asked you to be open-minded? This is the time :) Or you will throw rotten tomatoes at me all at once, i dont know.
*Runewords in Diablo 2's variant are bad*. Hoy hoy, stop right there! Let me explain.
Tell me, dear reader, in Diablo 2, when was the last time you equipped a yellow weapon on your sorc? A yellow shield on your paladin? A yellow chestpiece on any of the characters? Oh, and here's your answer - "when i was leveling before i could do Baal runs". And even before them you have NPC literally giving to you RalOrtTal runeword that you will put in the shield and will never drop till you run the level that does not exist, get 4s monarch and make a Spirit.
*Runewords make 99% of all items in the game in this particular slot obsolete*. Exclusions are quite rare and almost all of them are uniques. How these items are different from the set pieces?
***Yes, i am for the runes, but not in Diablo 2 way.*** For example - make them add value to the item. Or add value to stats. Or add new stats to the existing item, whether it be yellow or legendary or rare. Change the base needed from only grey item to any item in the game.
Crafting is basicly non-existent at this moment. I'm not asking system where you can craft an item through 6 different systems (im looking at you, PoE), but come on, at least something.
Trading is basicly non-existent at this moment. I'm not asking about the auction house, but at least for some kind of a trading board where you can write "have X, want Y or else". Even D2R has it in it's own form.

**the GOLD situation**

Personally i found that on the beta gold wasnt the problem whatsoever. I've managed to upgrade my characters up to pre-last upgrades very fast (e.g. within an hour on all three characters combined), and i really don't think that anyone will need to do more then that.
Respec cost was also (and will also be) not a problem whatsoever. That depends on the scaling, but i guess to respec all ~60 points in the tree (with all potential locations skill bonus points unlocked) will cost us probably 20-50k gold. And that is even if you will want to change your whole build on lvl 50. One full inventory in beta was worth ~18-30k gold, and will cost even more on high lvls. That's some quick maths for ya.
The gold will not be a problem at one moment. And that moment will not be far in the endgame, many people are just exagerrating.


Oh. My. God.
Slap the UI designer teamlead on the wrists and just redo it.
Character panel. Map. Statistics. Descriptions. Everything is made poorly, non-intuitive and unresponsive.
Why ditching the old, comfy, character screen where items were "equipped" on your character schematic picture, for this Diablo Immortal abomination?
Map overlay where?
Statistics screen is one big pile of everything.
Item descriptions are so big and unoptimized that sometimes you have to scroll to see your legendary affix on that item.
Just... No.

**Class designs.**

Oof. On some classes i thought that devs actually forgot to activate "Skill Page #2" button. But let's do class by class, from the ones that i've tried. Let's call it the "page #2" situation, okey?
Also a disclamer - i will talk about the mechanics and skill interactions. ***Not about the numbers.*** You can just draw an additional 0 in the end of all Druid numbers and *suddenly* whole community will praise this class. Class that does small numbers is not the bad class, it has the bad damage. And vice versa. E.g. i get it, numbers go brrrr, but come on - we're gonna play this game for a very long time and we want to play it without a finger in the bottoms.

As a Necromancer i found that they took Diablo 3's Necromancer, cut his tree in half, made some homages to D2's one, slapped 4 passives and 3 new active skills and called it a day. I mean, i understand that D3's Necro was both step up and step down from D2's. It had really, really good moments, but also had some abilities just not implemented. Like teeth, poison nova or cage. In the end, D3's necro came out a bit rushed out, some mechanics were not working either properly or as intended, but as a WHOLE it was extremely fun to play. Mechanics were not too complicated, but deep enough. Diablo 3 Necromancer was as intended - a guardian of balance. Both in lore and in mechanics. Class designers brought new ways to work with corpses, necro's second resource. Devour, Corpse Lance, Land of the Dead, all this was intended to work in tandem in corpse-oriented builds.
Diablo 4's Necromancer has, well, corpse explosion and tendrils. THAT'S IT. And this is the whole ability spectrum for his resource? Pitiful.
On the other hand, class as a whole has a very interesting potential. Blood Lance build has nice single target damage, but requires the lance to stay for at least 5 seconds in targets, 3 is too low. Bone spear is also a great one. A consistent way to proc vulnerability. Some other builds that i've found working quite fine. But the sheer amount of abilities and their synergies are very small in numbers.

Wich is a good point of talking about Rogues. Remember "page #2" situation? Well, divide skills that you have by 2 once more! Because the difference between range rogue and melee rogue is very, very distinct and limits the amount of spenders (e.g. almost the only damage source) to two for the melee and 3 for the ranged specs. Two skills for the melee rogue to choose from? Wo-hoo, bring me the theorycraters!
Also, the tree is very limited for the free skillpoints that you will be able to spend. Count with me. You will take Shadow Imbuement because otherwise clearing a dungeon will be a pain. You will take Consuming Shadows (30 energy regen when kill a target with shadow damage) because this way you will have effecively infinite energy (before boss). You will take Dash because duh. You will take Dark Shroud because it's a 50% damage reduction, for pete's sake, also 10% more crit chance. And these nodes alone take 11 points out of your build. Nodes that are mandatory, because if you will not take them class will be unplayable - becuase starts to lack other resource regeneration, survivability or clear speed. Effectively you will not shoot your foot, you will shove your foot into the grinder and press "on" button with a maniacal laugh. Throw here usual 2 points to start the character (or 3 if you want vulnerability or minor energy regen), 7 points in spender and you get whole 11+3+7=21 points hardlocked, living you with total of 5 points to give your character some utility. On level 50 that will be easier, but also remember that Shadow Imbuement will loose it's weight right at the moment when you will stop oneshoting trashmobs, therefore forcing you to take Poison Imbuement.
Gameplay-wise rogue is so crispy though. This is the only class i actually ***ENJOYED*** playing. It was generally fun. But each time i've opened my skill tree to change something and seeing that i can do only so much, the feeling of sadness was filling my soul... This class is two absolutely different classes blended together, requires a lot of work, and sadly enough "page #2" situation is as acute as ever.

I can't say that about the Sorceress though. The starting point was great, the leveling was great, the "endgame" was great, the balance was f**king abhorrent. Sorc takes all of it's defensive skills with one common affix on a gear. The only class that can kill the Butcher solo without taking any damage AND legendary affixes on it's gear. Has very good amount of CC, absolbrs, immunes. This requires a substantial nerf and it ***will*** be nerfed. Blizzard hates when you can slap infinite invulnerability on your character and call it a day, so dont expect frost blades build be alive on release.
The "page #2" situation is still here, though not as acute as in the Rogue class. The problem is that, compaired to D2 she gained mechanics, ofcourse, became quite deeper, but compaired to both D2 and especially D3, sadly, our beloved chineese girl lost a lot of knowledge. Melee focused abilities - gone. Copies - gone. Different meteors - gone. Diamond skin - redesigned, and i personally dont like the animation. Etc. etc. etc. BUT the lack of sheer skill numbers she outweights by mechanics and skill interractions... I could even say they're good! This class feels like it was done as a first one and polished enough for the people to test.

About our Big Boi Barbarian (Druid is the Chunky Boi) i can tell that he was also taken from Diablo 3. From Dust Devils and Vortex on WW to HoTA, Ancients and Shouts mechanics (some of them are a homage to D2, wich is respectable).
Leveling him to 20 was a painful process and i started to take a glance on what BBB can become, but beta ended. I guess he will be the most straightforward class with 1 button usage, but only when you get enough legendary powers. Especially two of them - Fortify for rage spent and Rage regeneration while a shout is on. Why are these powers on a gear and NOT in a talent tree i can't say. Without them the existence is truly miserable.
And come on, add a fifth basic ability. Where is my weapon throw?

As i've stated before, i didnt even touch the druid, but i've heard that it has a good chunk (pun intended) of abilities and synergies and, as a result, quite an interesting playstyle. The only thing he lacks is the actual damage. But again, that's just a matter of slapping additional zero to his numbers.

So, in the end, in class designs my biggest concerns are rogues and necromancers.

***Ending words***
At the moment of open beta, this game had tremendous flaws and tremendous upsides. Some of them flaws can be easily fixed. Some of them cries for redesigning choices being made. But in the end, as for me personally, i will play Diablo 4, of course. BUT only when the season starts and not before. First two weeks will actually be some kind of a beta-test to check how their servers work en mass, some balance patches, gold cost reductions, crucial bugfixes etc etc.
See you all when the season starts!
P.S. This post will be on both US/EU D4 forums and the d4 subreddit.

2023.03.30 20:26 kfor1996 Should I appeal the Negative Events and Imagery violation I got on my YouTube ad campaign?

Recently, I started using YouTube ad campaigns to promote my videos. The first YouTube ad campaign I ever created, was extremely successful. However, my second YouTube ad campaign did not even go through.
When I checked my YouTube ad dashboard, I noticed that my second ad campaign got stuck by Negative Events and Imagery violations. I don't want to link my video here. But it's about the horror games Silent Hill 4 and Yume Nikki. The whole thing is like a dollar tree Game Theory video. Also, toward the second half of the video, I made fun of the YouTuber Quentin Reviews. Also, my video got copyright claimed for a piece of supposedly free music.
With all of this stuff said, would you guys recommend to me to appeal this violation? I fear that if I do, my channel might get terminated.
tl;dr: My YouTube ad campaign got hit by Negative Events and Imagery violation. Should I appeal it?

2023.03.30 20:03 Cultural_Friendship6 Taming skill pitch a more full and fleshed out vision.

In OSRS i believe animal husbandry and breeding would work well as sub-category in Taming similar to how farming is different in that it supports many ways to farm, you have the crops, trees, herbs, specialty crops that go along with other activity as well.
I imagine taming to begin with players need to acquire animals either by purchasing them from NPCs or trough questing or by capturing them in the wild similar to how you would acquire a rare herb seed. Once you have the animals, players need to provide them with food, water, and shelter. The better the care the animals receive, the healthier they will be, which can affect their performance in certain activities such as providing current resources or alternatively new ones to support the older parts of the game.
Breeding could also be an essential aspect of taming which could be added into the game as a "taming stage 2 patch" This way there could be a clear path for players to imagine the future of the skill without having to doubt if the skill would be further supported by the developers. Here players could breed animals with desirable traits to produce offspring with better stats or sell them for a profit. Players could also perhaps train their animals in various skills, such as racing(new minigame?), carrying goods, gather more or better resources trough openworld activitys which can increase their value.
Players might also have to deal with animal health issues such as diseases and injuries, requiring them to provide medical care similar to how plant cure works to their animals. Additionally, players may have to protect their animals from predators or npc thieves, making security and protection important aspects of taming/breeding/animal husbandry. This could maybe use some requirements from crafting, construction, hunter, thiving and even magic.
Overall, animal husbandry and breeding in a taming setting provide players with a unique and engaging gameplay experience that combines elements of simulation, management, and strategy that are already key elements in OSRS skills.

2023.03.30 19:58 LyckaYK My best tips for newly arrived LE players

My best tips for newly arrived LE players
Who is this article for?
  • New players who have between 0 and 20-30 hours in the game
How will it help you?
  • Short collection of typical “I wish I knew this before playing Last Epoch (LE)” kind of tips
Why do I write this?
  • I just want to help + enjoy writing/talking about LE. I think the game deserves it.
    ------ My tips for you new LE players -----
  1. Use the crafting system even in early game, as soon as level 10. In LE the crafting system is meant to be used early. Do it for lifting the tier of the attributes in items (T1 is lowers, T5 is highest in the campaign) and even adding a new attribute in stronger items. Press “F” wherever you are (even outside towns) to start crafting
  2. Don´t worry about crafting materials. You will have plenty throughout the game and can target farm them later. Use whatever you need all the time.
  3. Speaking of crafting materials – you have a transfer button in you inventory and you can conveniently store as many as you like there.
  1. Runes and Glyphs are stuff that alter the result of crafting. You will be fine only using “Glyphs of Hope” and “Runes of shattering” for now and save the rest for more advanced crafting later.
  1. Make sure you buy all the “Runes of shattering” from the shops with an armor icon in towns, as long as you have enough gold for that. You will need many of those later.
  1. The campaign right now is not very well balanced. The first 40 levels you will certainly be 5 or more levels above the area level and will find the game somewhat easier that expected. Bosses are a bit scary, but not a real challenge
  2. 40-55 level (the campaign’s final parts) are very difficult for new players. It is expected to die 5-6 or more times on a boss.
  3. Don’t underestimate the bigger size enemies. Many of them have abilities that can evaporate 50% of you health with 1 hit.
  4. Resistances is what will help you advance in the campaign. Even if you ignore every other cool attribute like HP regeneration, block chance etc, make sure that you are near or at the maximum 75% resistance in all type of resistances, Physical resistance being your N1 priority. Click “C” in order to see your resistances.
  1. As in every ARPG game ranged, mage and especially minion builds have somewhat easier time advancing in the campaign. But this is not Diablo 4. There are plenty of enemies that jump on you from the other part of the screen or shoot stronger projectiles if you are far from them. If you prefer mele characters – don’t be afraid to start as such.
  1. Really easy in this game. Skill points you can respect wherever you are. Just press “S” pick the skill and chose Respect from the right-top corner. The points you lose you will get back pretty fast. No big deal.
  1. You can even completely change which skill you put skill points on, from the same button above. As in LE it is expected to benefit from all your skills lots it is important to check out as many skills as you can early on in order to find your favorites.
  2. Passive points can be respected in towns at the NPC with the brain icon. Cost is gold and is super cheap.
  1. It is totally OK to completely change on 180 degrease your build in the middle of the campaign. Don‘t be afraid to experiment and check out how your abilities are changing
  1. You better not only the main (yellow) but also the side quests (blue) as well. They give you passive points, good exp and a lot of gold for your new character.
  2. Quests are marked on the world map but if you can see where to go just click on the quest itself to get auto-navigated to the right zone
  1. GOLD - Your main source of gold in the campaign is quests or just picking it from the ground. After level 10 don’t really need to sell items for gold in town
  2. LEGENDARY POTENTIAL - The most valuable items that you can find in the campaign are uniques with legendary potential. Even bad uniques are worth saving as long as they have 2 or more (max is 4) legendary potential.
  1. INVENTORY TABS - Tabs in the inventory are bought for gold. Unlike PoE you can have as many as you like at low cost. Use them, store some junk…
  2. ITEM FILTER – Use it as early as you can. I mean it. You will be surprised how easy it is to set up. Begin by adding a simple rule like “Hide items by Rarity à Normal” and then add more rules as you advance in the campaign and realize what you want to pick up from the ground for this character. Click “Shift + F” to open the filter.
    ----- BONUS SECTION 😊-----
Top 5 things you (most probably) will like AND dislike in LE
According to the community those are the best things in LE: + Every spell has its own skill tree with plenty of choices that drastically change the skills and enable many different character build + Easy to use original crafting system that is less RNG and more accessible in early game + Plenty of quality of life features like auto-sort button in inventory, customizable in-game item filter, drop of identified items, key-word search everywhere in the UI. + Game complexity that is “just right” – somewhere between Diablo 3/4 and PoE. + Has all the “must have” cool ARPG elements you know from games like Diablo or PoE – items with different rarity, the well know APRG classes, cool boss fights, campaign with a story, build-defining unique items, synergies between different spells, etc.
What people tend to dislike:
- BUGS! The many bugs that the Beta still has, some of which critical - Game is not finished yet – campaign missing the final acts, some character specializations missing, some models and sound effects feel like a draft - The graphics/models are a bit outdated even if we saw huge improvement in patch 0.9 - The story of the campaign is a bit forgettable as the game currently doesn‘t have the means to tell it right (no cool cutscenes, cinematics, extensive game lore) - End Game can be improved as after 1-2 max level characters it seems repetitive or unpolished (mostly complains about monster density and having to progress everything again with every new character).
Note: Most of the negatives are actively addressed by the developers at EHG.
For example:
  • As 0.9 introduced many new ones, fixing bugs is a main priority so everybody expect that after some weeks they will be almost completely gone (as it was before the big 0.9 release.
  • they have said that the first acts in the campaign (they are kind of … worst looking) will be completely reworked as they were created years ago when the team didn‘t have access to better techniques and design options.
  • all sub-classes will be available on Release
  • you will notice huge improvement in lighting, 3D models, level design, depth, water effects and other visuals in the last part of the campaign (after lvl 40)
And despite all this, you would have given real money for an unfinished game in 0.9 Beta. If you can‘t tolerate bugs and unpolished elements in the game – just wait for the release. Bo official date, but the optimistic scenario is end of this year, which is exactly on time after some Diablo 4 and maybe PoE 2. Have fun!

Places to visit in the USA
With over 9 million square kilometers of land, the United States offers the world great and exemplary cities, magnificent national parks, beaches, and enchanting islands.
Besides being a military power, North America is also one of the world's most visited countries due to its number two position in tourism.
Here are our Top 28 Best Tourist Places in the United States.
  1. New Orleans
The southeast Louisiana city of New Orleans is described as beautiful, vibrant, relaxed and fun.
With its French and Spanish heritage, as well as its accentuated Afro-American features, it expresses American multiculturalism in its architecture, music, and cuisine.
Since President Thomas Jefferson bought New Orleans from Napoleon Bonaparte for $15 million, it has been a wonderful rarity in America.
The French Quarter is the most eclectic city in the country, with its cultural hallmarks added throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.
  1. Memphis
The Memphis of Elvis Presley holds true material and spiritual jewels behind its industrial facade.
Among the most influential music venues in the United States is Memphis. This is where Johnny Cash, the king of the country, B.B. King, the king of blues, and Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll performed.
In spite of Graceland, Elvis's mansion, and Beale Street club, where B.B. 's guitar was played, Memphis isn't just about music.
It was built in the same place where Martin Luther King Jr., leader of the civil rights movement for African Americans, was assassinated. Civil rights have been a long-standing struggle for black Americans.
Also worth visiting are the Museum of Childhood, the Pink Palace Museum, Isla Mud, and the Memphis Pyramid.
  1. Asheville
Asheville, located in the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina, is known for its vast green spaces and craft beer.
There are numerous parks and picturesque mountain paths to breathe fresh air and contemplate beautiful landscapes for those who enjoy hiking, excursions, and simply walking.
The Biltmore estate, the country's largest private mansion, is very close to Asheville. Magnate George Vanderbilt commissioned the construction of this 250-room palace and 50,000-hectare estate.
It's possible you'll stay in the same room that America's greatest inventors, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, John Rockefeller, and the escapist Harry Houdini, Enrico Caruso, once stayed at the Grove Park Inn. Franklin D. Roosevelt, the former president.
There is no shortage of azaleas at Cape Fear Botanic Gardens, and their spectacular spring blooms fill the air with color.
Basilica of San Lorenzo boasts North America's largest free-standing elliptical dome, a turn-of-the-20th-century temple.
  1. Redwood National Park
There are 540 km2 of physical space in the far north of California, off the Pacific coast. Redwood trees can reach heights of more than 115 meters and can live for up to 3 thousand years in the forest.
You will gain a better understanding of what humans represent in the ecosystem if you picnic or camp near these giants of nature.
Redwood's roads take you deep into the woods or close to the coast's beautiful beaches.
This park, which was used in the film Return of the Jedi from the Star Wars saga, is home to brown pelicans, white-headed sea eagles, northern spotted owls, and Steller sea lions.
  1. Denver
In the Rocky Mountains at 1,600 meters above sea level, Denver is a large Colorado city. A combination of natural spaces and man-made comforts.
Tourists and businessmen visit the city to enjoy its charms and take advantage of its economic strength.
For outdoor recreation, Rocky Mountain National Park, Cheesman Park, the Botanical Gardens, and the Zoological Gardens are excellent choices.
In spite of not competing in height with nearby skyscrapers, the cathedral-basilica dedicated to the Immaculate Conception stands out for its sober beauty.
  1. Glacier National Park
With more than 4,100 km2, this park borders Canada and has 130 lakes, in addition to its two mountain systems, Lewis and Livingston.
There are an infinite number of species of flora and fauna in the high snow-capped mountains, including the mountain goat, the park's official symbol.
After shaping its mountains and leaving amazing beauty spots, the glaciers that have disappeared in the last 15,000 years gave this place its name.
Grizzly bears, mules, mouflons, and Canadian lynx are among the species protected in Glacier National Park, one of the best-preserved ecosystems in the country.
The activities to be carried out include fishing, alpine skiing, camping, and hiking.
7. Chicago
Chicago, the "windy city", probably has the best weather in the country.
Restaurants and menus from all over the world make up its gastronomic offer. Likewise, Chicago is the axis of the manifestation of human genius in art and culture.
The Field Museum of Natural History houses more than 20 million natural and cultural objects, making it one of the world's largest museums. The museum's collection of fossils includes Sue, the most complete tyrannosaurus ever found by science.
Chicago has a rich and influential musical life, similar to Memphis. Chicago Blues, Gospel, jazz, Chicago Soul, hip-hop, and the city's top orchestra can be heard there.
8. Natchez
Rich cotton plantation owners looking for a more pleasant summer vacation destination built Natchez's stately porticoed mansions in the 19th century.
In the midst of its large and beautiful gardens, Longwood, which was left unfinished by the civil war, remains very well preserved.
One of the architectural jewels of the southern United States, the cathedral-basilica of Santa Maria impresses with its interior view.
You should visit Natchez just to see the sunsets over the Mississippi River.
9. New York
The "navel of the world", the "capital of the world", the "city that never sleeps", and the "big apple", are some of the adjectives that describe New York.
With millions of residents in a metropolis where more than 170 languages are spoken, it is as rich in culture as it is in population.
There is no comparison to its culinary, museum, artistic, theatrical, musical, audiovisual, festive, sports, and shopping offerings.
The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Empire State, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park are must-sees. A majestic man-made waterfall on the East River was recently added to this list.
10. Savannah
Despite being challenged for his brutal scorched earth policy during the Civil War, General William Sherman refused to destroy Savannah.
With its boats plying the river that gives it its name, its boulevards with trees that join their crowns making natural vaults, its traditional homes, and its parks and squares, Savannah embodies the old southern spirit like few cities.
Fans of paranormal phenomena will feel at home in this Georgian city, where "ghosts" are everywhere. At least 50 buildings in this "bewitched city" are said to have extrasensory manifestations, which is why it is called a "bewitched city."
Savannah's Gothic-style synagogue is a curiosity.
11. Grand Canyon
There are no words to describe how impressive the Grand Canyon is. The extent of its length exceeds 440 km and its chilling abysses exceed 1,600 meters.
Getting down to the Colorado River's bed is the best way to appreciate this work of nature. Water carved the gorge in a thousand-year-old erosive process.
Among the recreational activities offered by tour operators are hiking, mule rides, hiking, and rafting.
The Skywalk, a walkway with a glass floor more than 1,200 meters high, is an experience that cannot be missed. It's crazy!
12. Nashville
The Parthenon, a replica of the famous Greek building built at the end of the 19th century, is one of the reasons Nashville is called the "Athens of the South" for its educational system and architecture.
There is a 13-meter-high gold-plated statue of Athena in this Parthenon.
Tennessee's capital is also known as "Music City.". You can enjoy neoclassical architecture, a musical atmosphere, and home-style southern cuisine here.
The state capitol is housed in an elegant Greek Neo-Renaissance building built in the mid-19th century.
From colonization through the 20th century, the Tennessee State Museum offers an entertaining look at the state's history.
13. Saint Francis
Another American microcosm featuring cultures and people from all over the world can be found in the beautiful Californian city.
Its high standard of living is supported by the technological development of Silicon Valley, where Apple was born.
Golden Gate, now 81 years old, remains the city's iconic structure. Symbolic cable tram rides that go up the streets continue to attract tourists.
A visit to the oldest Chinatown in the United States is a must if you want to taste ancient and fascinating oriental cuisine.
260 meters high, the Transamerica Pyramid is the tallest skyscraper in San Francisco.
Throughout the year, the city by the bay hosts museums, musical and cultural festivals, sporting events, and shows of all kinds.
14. Lake Tahoe
Despite global warming and droughts, Lake Tahoe, located in the Sierra Nevada at almost 1,900 meters above sea level, has managed to preserve its reputation as one of the purest and clear bodies of water in the United States.
There are quaint towns and cities such as Reno and Carson City along the lake's perimeter.
In winter, Lake Tahoe and its surroundings are popular ski resorts, while in summer, hiking and boating are popular.
Bonanza often featured the blue waters of the lake, which has also been the setting for movies such as X-Men (2 and 3) and The Godfather.
15. Miami
There's nothing like a beach party in Miami. Several industries (commerce, communications, entertainment, finance) make the city one of the world's wealthiest metropolises, wealth that translates into well-being and a lifestyle few cities can match.
The green areas are well-maintained, as are the streets and beaches, which are completely clean when tourists arrive. The city's fabulous, glamorous, and exclusive shops, shopping centers, and restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisines.
More cruise ships arrive in Miami than anywhere else in the world, bringing tourists from around the globe who know there will be entertainment and pleasure in the "Magic City."
Here are 20 things you must do in Miami with our guide
16. San Diego
For many Americans, it is the best city in the United States because of its sunny and warm climate year-round.
Nearly 4,000 specimens of more than 650 species can be found at the world-famous city zoo in Balboa Park, a vast natural and cultural space.
In order to fully explore it, visitors must be in good physical condition.
There are 20 blocks of Victorian houses, galleries, shops, and restaurants in the Gaslamp Quarter, a historic district developed at the end of the 19th century.
One contribution of the US Navy Pacific Fleet to tourism is its USS Midway Museum, which is housed on the aircraft carrier that decommissioned in 1992.
Seaport Village on the Point Loma waterfront, the Museum of Art, Horton Plaza and the San Diego Mission are also equally attractive attractions.
17. Wine Country (California)
Wine Country, the region where Californian wines are made, including the Napa and Sonoma valleys, is the best place to taste them.
Hundreds of hectares of vines cover the plains with green. Wineries, quaint boutique hotels, and restaurants dot the region, where the best regional cuisine is accompanied by exquisite wines, many of which are grown in adjacent orchards.
From the grape to the bottle, wineries offer tours that blend traditional and modern winemaking techniques.
18. Washington D.C.
It is the capital. The city has less than 700,000 people but is second only to New York in terms of ethnic and gastronomic diversity.
As a political city, it has top-notch services for residents and tourists.
All tourists visit the Washington Monument, the Civil War Memorial, and the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in addition to the White House and the National Capitol, two architectural symbols of the capital.
The Smithsonian Institute has beautiful museums, one of which is the Natural History Museum with over 125 million specimens.
The Georgetown University campus is serenely beautiful, preceded by Healy Hall, a majestic building blending Romanesque and Baroque styles harmoniously.

The peninsula is dotted with windmills and picturesque towns such as Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee, Dennis, Brewster, Chatham, Eastham, Truro, and Provincetown.
In summer, vacationers from New England and other parts of the country flock to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.
20. Boston
This is the city where the Red Sox play baseball. The Tea Party of 1773, a precursor event to American independence, occurred in the beautiful capital of Massachusetts.
A museum dedicated to this event tells the story of the event through actors dressed in the style of the time.
A number of stately buildings and museums can be found in Boston's Historic District, including the Otis House and the Gibson House.
While the Science Museum is the main attraction for visitors, other artistic and museum spaces such as the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Museum of Natural History are equally popular.
The North End is a small universe of peoples and cultures that make the city a living paradise for those who enjoy Italian cuisine and culture.
21.Las Vegas
This is a story about Sin City.
A multitude of sumptuous hotels and casinos line the Strip and Fremont Street in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is impossible without visiting the Flamingo, Caesars Palace, Mirage, Venetian, Excalibur, or MGM Grand. This has always been the scene of memorable boxing matches.
Mafia Museum recalls the city's origins as an Italian-American criminal organization initiative. Among the gangsters, you will meet the most infamous and ingenious scammers in the world.
Las Vegas' first hotel-casino, The Flamingo, was the brainchild of gangster Bugsy Siegel, a partner and subordinate of Lucky Luciano, who saw the advantages of having an isolated place for betting, roulette, and shows.
Take a day trip from the city of sin to the Grand Canyon, a few kilometers away.

The cemetery in which Bruce Lee and his son Brandon are buried also attracts hundreds of tourists, whether they are martial arts fans or not.
Enjoy the playful sea lions of Lake Washington.
24. Deadwood
Deadwood, located in South Dakota in the central-northern part of the country, has retained the spirit of the old western town it once was despite its location in the middle of the country.
Deadwood's large population of criminals and adventurers produced at least one death every day by the end of the 19th century. It had more saloons than residences, nine out of ten women were prostitutes, and nine out of ten men were prostitution dealers.
There are dueling gunmen, allusive museums, modern gambling dens, and rodeo shows in this picturesque town that harmlessly recreate its legendary and violent past.
The grave of the notorious adventurer and gunslinger, Wild Bill, shot to death at a card table in 1876, is a landmark associated with the city's past. He died with 2 aces and 2 eights, the now infamous and inauspicious "dead man's hand."

The Museum of the Negro Leagues is a must-see for baseball fans.
26. Key West

Key West is a place where you can forget about the noise. A tourist bus ride of about an hour and a half will take you past the main attractions, including the house where Ernest Hemingway lived and is now a museum.
Duval Street offers excellent restaurants and nightlife options if you forget your swimsuit or other clothing or accessory.
There is a rich and beautiful biodiversity in the mangrove forests of Key West. A paddle board or kayak tour will leave you feeling energized for the rest of the day.
In Dry Tortugas National Park, 110 km from Key West, you can dive in reefs with clear waters.
A sunset viewing in Mallory Square with music and street performers is another must-do activity in Key West.
27. Mount Rushmore
Between 1927 and 1941, Keystone Mountain in South Dakota was carved into granite.
Danish-American artist Gutzon Borglum and his son Lincoln sculpted the 60-foot-tall faces of celebrated presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln.
400 carvers participated, guided by plaster models preserved in this National Monument, built to honor the most representative characters of American history's first century and a half.
One of the most symbolic places in the country is Mount Rushmore. Each year, it receives more than 3 million visitors.
28. Yellowstone National Park
World's oldest national park. It is the enormous caldera of the largest volcano on the American continent, a monster that could wipe out all life on earth if it erupted.
Even though there have been no eruptions for 640,000 years, it still attracts hundreds of visitors with its spectacular geysers.
Among the more than 500 geysers formed in the park, Old Faithful is the most famous, erupting at 93°C and 40 meters high almost every hour.
Lamar Valley, with its mountains as sentinels, is a great place to camp for hikers and wildlife watchers.

2023.03.30 19:38 DarthSillius I wrote this as a response to a comment but i felt it needed to be more widely known.

I dont think im off the mark to say most witnesses and exwitnesses do not know this but....that old library in the hall is worth a fortune. No joke. Literally thousands of dollars. Trust me, i know. Here is my comment. Check this out:
Put aside the actual religiosity of it all for a moment. Think of all the publications theyve put out there since the early 1900s. Its a lot. Now think of how much of that went straight into the trash. How many of the rest got studied up and written all over. Think about how they always say 'heres new light' and some book comes out to replace an old one like the bible itself, the song books, the theocratic ministry school books, etc...
The old publications go out of print. Often, theres stuff in those old books they dont want you to see any more. More books go by the way side as the new books get produced and used and so on. People move over decades and often, beat up old study copies end up lost in the shuffle or mercifully, quietly thrown out.
People DO collect the books though. Most long standing older witnesses will have at least a shelf or two dedicated to the publications they used and have read. At my parents house, they have bound volumes. Lots of them. The CDs dont have every publication and every year they had less and less available by CD. Now, i dont know whats on JW.borg at all but ill bet theres a good deal missing from their actual written past or reworded. You may find, if you were ever inclined to look, that kingdom halls sometimes had or still have small collections of books that may have been donated to them by older witnesses or their relatives when they die. Assembly halls also make displays of old literature too.
Heres the thing, i dont know about a new witness today and how they feel but a general feeling back in the day about the publications was that they are a tool for us to use....until they become something of a treasure from the past, part of memories, a sacred thing of respect, dare i say, idols...almost. If you are a witness, you feel bad throwing them away as you may an old watchtower (some cant throw those out either). What often happens is a witness will just quietly end up throwing away excess books and study copies but save one for their collection.
You may also have the rare occasion of someone whos parents were witnesses and now theyve gotta throw out their stuff, to these kids, those old publications are worse than worthless and theyd simply throw them all out in disgust or maybe even burn them for a little bit of therapy. many people who simply have these books would ever assume they had any value as a collectable? No jw thinks this way.
Now imagine that you are not a witness but you -for some reason- want to simply collect the publications produced by the International bible students association and later watchtower bible and tract society. How do you do it? Where do you find them? Who has any anywhere? Will they give them to you? Will they sell them to you? No.
The publications you see there on amazon is nothing compared to what is out there and what people are looking for. Theres publications you may not have ever heard of like the so called "rainbow books" or the finished mystery volumes, the messenger of laodecia(a pamphlet given out at the funeral of charles taze russell), pastor russell says, bound volumes of zions watchtower from the late 1800s, bound volumes of the predecessors of the Awake magazine....there are some extremely rare jdub books out there.
But it isnt just that. Theres the actual magazines, a century of brochures, the outdated blood cards, testimony cards, old tracts, kingdom news letters, letters written to congregations from the society that bare their letter head, stationary, old time sheets, invitations to talks and memorials and assembly/convention programs. Aaaall this is basically litter, none of it was meant to be kept the way books are. Even blood cards and contracts are supposed to be renewed. Its all desposable. To find these are often even more rare than getting your hands on old publications like the millennial dawn, for instance.
Witnesses have always been -ruiners of the earth- in my opinion, given the massive amount of trees theyve been responsible for churning into paper for like 140 years. The huge carbon footprint theyve made with all the electricity they consumed producing all of this garbage, all the cars driving people back and forth to halls and out into the field, all the resources for supplies to build kingdom halls and assembly halls and all the trash and consumerism produced in the name of jehovah, this all combined makes them just as much ruiners of the earth as anyone they could point their finger at.
But again, all of that garbage from the past including bookmarks, calendars, banners, lapel pins, vinyl records, binders to hold actual watchtower issues into a bound volume, so many things that once was is now simply rare collectables. And the rarer it is, the more its worth.
I hope this was helpful.
P.S. I have heard recently that the society is asking halls to send their rare publications to them for 'safe keeping'. I dont know how true that is but i personally think its so they can sell off the rare ones themselves to help pay off lawsuits.

Would anybody be interested in getting some apple sticks?
I recently had a rather large limb break off of one of my apple trees during a winter storm and I need to get it cleaned up. My bunnies go nuts for these sticks! I checked at the pet store and they want 5 frickin dollars for a pathetic little handful of apple twigs. If anybody wants to send me shipping and handling plus a few bucks I'd be happy to stuff a polymailer full of apple sticks for you. Thanks

I’m trying to get that purple skull wonder from the dragon trees merge but honestly liked the glowing dragon tree level 7. The colors are so vibrant and so cute. Now I’m shifting my interest into getting the level 8 glowing dragon tree instead of the dragon tree wonder. lol.
What about you?

2023.03.30 18:04 Squatting-Turtle Heard that creepy groan again, then felt sensations!

I don't know what this is, it feels like a very specific experience of sort. Also I dont think ive ever successfully APed before or even lucid dreamed.
As per my notes immediately after waking:
Hear that disembodied creepy breathing/groaning noise again
Vibration, wave crashing noise/wind howling
(remember Astral projection, Let go
Seeing lost of fast flash imagery, there is a womans face but lots of other things
Fade in
VERY CLEAR, I'm flying yellow floaty futuristic saucer around in 3rd person, trying not to hit stuff (bump into things but im ok). I have to use my eyes to change where i go.
Loosing control
Fade out, go back in (blinking in and out?)
Only felt like 15 seconds at most in the Saucer.
This is the 3rd time i've heard this weird groaning noise, i almost want to say it comes from within me but it doesn't sound like its me. I had a similar but let vivid experience 4 days ago, same build up
In the darkness(or maybe it was a dream) i saw like a face outline flash in an out a bit, but was also sometimes a skull and then one time it was more of a silly skull, or something like a day of the dead skull.
I was at a nice (perhaps oak) tree, but there were 2 kids off past it to the right a little underneath it kinda staring at me. I think i had the sense that they were scared of me, maybe i was scared it it projected to the.
Then some weird tall ogreish monster thing came down from the tree and fell over near me and it ended.
I'm also a bit shocked because the main thing that stood out to me , that for some fucking reason i didn't write down was that i heard a very vivid voice that sounded demonic/throaty said "Wake up my friend, wake up" during the tree bit.

2023.03.30 17:47 TheTalkedSpy "Love Is …" (April 8, 2005)

Source: The La Vista Church of Christ
In learning the craft of needlepoint, a person will sometimes work on a sampler. The sampler generally contains a notable quotation and a variety of images and scrollwork to demonstrate the different stitches mastered. Bible verses are often selected for the basic text, and one of the most popular selections is I Corinthians 13:4-8:
Love suffers long and is kind; Love does not envy; Love does not parade itself, Is not puffed up; Does not behave rudely, Does not seek its own, Is not provoked, Thinks no evil; Does not rejoice in iniquity, But rejoices in the truth; Bears all things, Believes all things, Hopes all things, Endures all things. Love never fails.
Though we often associate this passage with weddings, Paul originally penned it to describe the love shown between fellow Christians. But since it describes love in general, it also applies to the love between husband and wife, parents to their children, and the love that God has for each of us. Let us consider what each point means.


The word here expresses the willingness to wait, even through disagreeable times. It is probably best illustrated by God's longsuffering with mankind. "What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?" (Romans 9:22-24). Mankind, as a whole, has not been the most loveable of God's creation. Our behavior in rebelling against our God would have tried anyone's patience. Yet, we find that God has put up with the bad in order to save the good. "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance" (II Peter 3:9). God tolerance of man's sins is not endless, but it is very long, giving us every opportunity to improve.
Our society doesn't cultivate patience. We seek instant gratification and impulsive whims. We lost something as our economy moved away from its agricultural roots. "Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand. Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience. Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord--that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful" (James 5:7-11). That which is worth having is worth investing time to gain. It takes time for a person to mature, so invest the time in the people you love.
Not every relationship goes smoothly all the time. Even the best relationship will experience rocky points of heartaches. It is patience, born of love, that carries us through the rough times. "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing" (James 1:2-4). Too many marriages are only wonderful during the honeymoon. Difficulties are bound to come, but they are also bound to be followed by good times. It is patience that helps us last through the bad times so that we are still together when things turn rosy once again.


"Kind" means showing yourself to be useful or acting in a benevolent way. "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you" (Ephesians 4:31-32). Kindness is more than an absence of ill-will; it is an activity showing your care for another person. "But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil" (Luke 6:35). Kindness is not something reserved for major events; kindness is demonstrated in the little things that we do day-by-day for the one we love. "Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men" (Romans 12:9-17).

Not Envious

Envy is an infection that eats away at life, ruining even its best moments. "A sound heart is life to the body, but envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30). Envy is believing that what another person has ought to belong to you. Joseph was his father's favorite son and he showed his favor by giving him a special coat. God also showed favor to Joseph by sending him dreams that indicated he would one day be head of his family. However, Joseph's brothers envied him (Acts 7:9). They only saw that they were not getting what Joseph was getting. Their envy eventually led them to consider murdering their own brother and eventually selling him off into slavery. Love cannot survive when envy invades the soul. "Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another" (Galatians 5:26).

Does Not Vaunt Itself

On the flip-side, when you love someone you don't give that person cause to envy you. There is no need to put yourself on a pedestal when you already have someone who admires you. "But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil" (James 4:16). "For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith" (Romans 12:3).

Not Puffed Up

"Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall" (Proverbs 16:18). Pride is a destructive force, ruining relationships, causing arguments, and keeping a person from seeing things through the eyes of another. "He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife" (Proverbs 28:25). Paul mentions this to the Corinthians because their pride was destroying the church. "Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that you may learn in us not to think beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other ... Now some are puffed up, as though I were not coming to you. But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord wills, and I will know, not the word of those who are puffed up, but the power" (I Corinthians 4:6, 18-19).

Does Not Behave Rudely

Yes, love requires good manners for love does not act unbecomingly. Though you must wonder at the world's idea of love. So often husbands and wives are depicted saying the rudest things about each other in order to get a laugh, but such is not a depiction of love. James told brethren, "Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge" (James 4:11). We should appreciate those to whom we are closest instead of regarding them with contempt.

Does Not Seek Its Own

We have enough people who act as if they are the center of the universe. Love is for other people, not for yourself. Other people must come before our own. "Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others" (Philippians 2:3-4). "Let no one seek his own, but each one the other's well -being. ... just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved." (I Corinthians 10:24, 33).

Not Easily Provoked

When you truly love someone, it should be difficult to become exasperated at them. Love is willing to overlook the little annoyances that are bound to occur. "So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God" (James 1:19-20). You cannot love another with a chip on your shoulder.
Now, this doesn't mean you will never get angry. It means the threshold for becoming angry is higher. And when you do get angry, you settle the problem quickly so that the anger will not last. ""Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil" (Ephesians 4:26-27).

Thinks No Evil

The phrase refers to a person who keeps records of every past misdeed ever committed. Sure, in any relationship there will be missteps. Given time, you are bound to say something or do something which you wish you had not. But in a loving relationship, such misdeeds should be willingly forgiven when the person repents, and once forgiven never brought up again. "And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, 'I repent,' you shall forgive him" (Luke 17:4). Forgiveness is not dependant on how many times a wrong was committed in the past. Each event is to be looked at separately and independently. Imagine asking God for forgiveness only to be told "I sorry, I've already forgiven you a thousand times. You've used up your quota." "Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do" (Colossians 3:12-13).
Forgiving wrongs means letting go of the past. "For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more" (Jeremiah 31:34). It is not that the memory of the event will disappear, but that it will no longer matter because it will not be brought up for discussion again.

Does Not Rejoice in Iniquity, But Rejoices in Truth

Even though it is wrong, we sometimes feel a certain glee when someone we dislike fall on hard times. "Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles" (Proverbs 24:17). Worse yet is when a person is happy for the failings of someone they supposedly love.
Our concern should be that those we love will be saved. Yet, there are some who claim to love while leading a person astray. How often have you heard the phrase, "If you really love me, you would ..." and then some sinful action is suggested. Such is not from love but from self-interest.
Instead, we should find pleasure in our loved ones' righteous deeds. "I rejoiced greatly that I have found some of your children walking in truth, as we received commandment from the Father" (II John 4).

Bears All Things

In Greek, this phrase literally means to cover a subject with silence. There are going to be times when a loved one will injure you in some way. Hopefully, the problem will be handled and forgiven. "Let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins" (James 5:20). While we earlier noted that love keeps no records of wrongdoing, here we go a step further. Many sins carry embarrassing consequences. To love someone is to help them deal with the consequences after you have forgiven them. "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered" (Psalm 32:1). We have to be sensitive to the feelings of those who know they have done wrong and have turned away from sin. It does them no good to further drag them through the mud of their own making. "Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins" (Proverbs 10:12). When you love someone, you go through the bad times with them.

Believes All Things

When you love someone, you demonstrate that love by trusting them. Love is built on a foundation of trust. There is an old song called, "When You're in Love with a Beautiful Woman" that speaks the exact opposite sentiment. The author of the song claimed that you would have to watch her every move because you never know when she might cheat on you. Such an attitude is simply not love!
When someone is willing to trust you, you, in turn, need to demonstrate that you are trustworthy. You should never place yourself in a situation that would destroy the trust you have.

Hopes All Things

Love is optimistic and not pessimistic. We should always expect the best and look forward to better times. Even if this world has its disappointments, there is a home awaiting the will not disappoint. "For here we have no continuing city, but we seek the one to come" (Hebrews 13:14). "These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them" (Hebrews 11:13-16).

Endures All Things

Love keeps going even when our life is filled with burdens. It doesn't quit or give up. The righteous, "He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper" (Psalm 1:3). God's word sustains us through good times and bad.
Some approach marriage with the idea that if it doesn't work, they will get a divorce. That is not love! I have seen Christians deal with congregations the same way. They will stay so long as things go smoothly for them. But as soon as there is a bump in the road, they are out the looking for another congregation. Such Christians have no love for their brethren.

Love Never Fails

True love never stops. You can't fall in and out of love. Love endures. Love grows.

2023.03.30 17:28 jclane We usually associate character development with face turns/redemption arcs etc. What are examples of characters who became better (quality) by becoming worse (morally)?

One that springs to mind is Tekken's Kazuya Mishima. Granted, he only really had one game as being the hero and didn't really have much going on beyond "I gotta go kill my evil dad". Afterwards, he started to become way more popular once getting down with the devil (gene). You'd be hard pressed to find someone who's all like "man, I really miss Tekken 1 Kazuya" these days.
Another is Ultimate Universe Reed Richards from Marvel Comics. Before the going mad heel-turn, he was exactly what you'd imagine a teenage version of Mr Fantastic would be. After going a bit cocopops and assuming the moniker of the Maker, he easily became the most interesting villain of that universe, especially because others like Dr. Doom felt like dollar tree store counterparts to their 616 versions. Whilst I imagine a bit of author's pet was in play thanks to Hickman, the fact that he was one of only two Ult Universe characters to survive over into the main one after Secret Wars (the other being Miles Morales) should speak volumes of how much his stock has increased.

2023.03.30 17:25 Trscroggs (Ryza 3) What should I unlock on the skill tree first?

I'm sort of at the beginning of the game, and quickly unlocked the first set of weapon recipes, which turned out to be a mistake because it was a long time before I had the material to craft any of those.
In fact I've unlocked most of my things before being able to make them.
