Casca and Griffith archetypes in fiction
I'm going to compare Casca and Griffith to characters in other media. I want to describe their archetypes. I'm going to talk about Guts a little bit too.
My analysis is quite superficial, sorry for that. But there's a lot of deep and detailed analyses out there. Why not have a deliberately superficial conversation about vague impressions of characters? After all, the difference between "deep" and "superficial" traits of a character is subjective.
I have a specific way of describing characters, so we'll need a bit of theory before diving in.

Basics

I describe a character type as a list of dynamics:
  • Dynamic 1. ...
  • Dynamic 2. ...
  • Dynamic 3. ...
  • And so on.
(Doesn't matter what the word "dynamic" means in general, specific examples are all that matters.)
However, it shouldn't be a list of random dynamics. The dynamics have to overlap, be somewhat equivalent and have a common theme. Here's a made up simplified example:
  • Dynamic 1. The character likes to have fun with friends.
  • Dynamic 2. Likes to work on projects with friends.
  • Dynamic 3. Likes to actively help their friends.
  • Dynamic 4. Likes to make new friends.
As you see, those dynamics overlap, mean basically the same thing and have a common theme "life + friends". And yet those descriptions are not 100% equivalent, each dynamic adds new information and context.

Terminology

This bit of terminology is going to be important:
  • "Outside world" = something that affects almost everyone.
  • "Personal world" = something that's important to a specific person (including personal relationships). "Feeling sad" is an event in the personal world. But "falling in love" and "being in a love affair" and "going through a breakup" are events in the personal world too.
All this may depend on context, though.

Casca

I think Casca is similar to those characters: Misato Katsuragi (Evangelion), Katara) (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Raven/Mystique (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter), Sayaka Miki (Puella Magi Madoka Magica), Trinity) (The Matrix), Arwen (The Lord of the Rings), Rose DeWitt#Fictional_characters) (Titanic 1997), Bo Peep) (Toy Story), Ericka Van Helsing (Hotel Transylvania), Elizabeth Swann (Pirates of the Caribbean), Sophie) (Howl's Moving Castle), Wanda Maximoff) (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
This type of characters is created by those similar dynamics:
  • Dynamic 1. They are strong, but are a bit "lost" in the outside world. Trapped or pressured by it.
  • Dynamic 2. They have an important past relationship/unrequited love, which contributes to their struggle against the world. Or a relationship with a character important/famous in the outside world.
  • Dynamic 3. Their relationship is threatened by the outside world. They witness death of a loved one. Or great harm to a loved one. Or die/get greatly harmed themselves.
  • Dynamic 4. They get [almost] crushed by the outside world. Or break free from the pressure of the world.
  • Dynamic 5. They have an attitude/philosophy which makes the conflict with the outside world stronger.
Every dynamic above is about some conflict with the world: the outside world threatens the character personally or threatens their relationship.
So, the overarching theme is "power and [very] personal conflict with the outside world". Let's see how it applies to some specific characters.

Madoka Magica

Sayaka Miki:
  1. She is strong, but she isn't the strongest magical girl in the neighborhood. It serves as the source of additional conflict with the world (bullying by Kyoko, manipulation into despair by Kyubey).
  2. She has unrequited love for Kyousuke. Later she feels she lost her chance to ever be with Kyousuke. All this is 100% relevant to her struggle against the world.
  3. She sees her love crippled by an accident.
  4. Eventually Sayaka grows too frustrated by fighting evil and injustice, she "dies" by turning into a witch (an evil monstecreature).
  5. She cares about justice a lot and easily conflicts with people. It makes her collision with the world stronger.
She fits the overarching theme "power and [very] personal conflict with the outside world".

Titanic

Rose DeWitt#Fictional_characters):
  1. Her family is debt-ridden. She's forced into a marriage to save her upper-class status. She feels trapped and even tries to kill herself.
  2. [skip]
  3. She sees her love die to save her.
  4. As mentioned, she almost kills herself. Then almost dies in the Titanic disaster. But after that she breaks free from everything and lives a free adventurous life.
  5. She has a specific desire for freedom and independence: another person in her place wouldn't suffer as she did.

Berserk

Casca:
  1. She starts with no control over her life. Then becomes a badass. Still, she's just a member of a band.
  2. She had feelings for Griffith and Guts (famous people in Berserk).
  3. She finds Griffith broken by torture, she sees her friends slaughtered.
  4. She was raped by Griffith. She's broken and loses her mind.
  5. She's very stubborn.
You can do a similar analysis of other mentioned characters.

3rd dynamic

Let's focus on this:
Dynamic 3. Their relationship is threatened by the outside world. They witness death of a loved one. Or great harm to a loved one. Or die/get greatly harmed themselves.
  • Misato dies; "sees" Kaji die; sees kids die, get injured and traumatized; her father dies to save her. Trinity dies two times; sees Neo die one time ("now get up"). Katara looks dead in a heart-breaking scene; her mother dies to save her; Jet dies; Zuko gets zapped by lighting to save her; sees Aang die one time (until he dies the second time). Arwen almost dies; sees her mother losing her mind after torture; loses her immortality; sees Aragorn die peacefully. Sayaka "dies"; then 100% dies along with her new friend; sees her love disabled by an accident. Rose DeWitt tries to kill herself; sees her love die to save her; her "arranged husband" kills himself in a completely unrelated situation.
  • Erika tries to kill her future love multiple times. Then breaks free from the control of her great-grandfather and prejudices.
  • Elizabeth Swann: kills Jack Sparrow; her could-be-husband dies; Will Turner dies 7 minutes after marriage. Sophie: rapidly ages into an old lady; dumps water on Howl's heart, thinks she killed him; sees her love turned into a monster and dead inside.
  • Ginny goes on a killing spree and "dies" in her first school year; her lover (Harry Potter) needs to die and partially succeeds.
Last but not least:
  • Wanda has had enough, she goes on a multiverse killing spree after: her brother dies two times; her love (Vision) dies two times; her kids are "taken away" from her. She was threatened by the world all the time; then she trapped a village for her fantasy world; then she started owning the multiverse.

Griffith

I think Griffith) is similar to those characters: Shinji Ikari (Evangelion), Harry Potter) (Harry Potter), Frodo (The Lord of the Rings), Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece), Rock Lee (Naruto), Saitama (One-Punch Man), Heinz Doofenshmirtz (Phineas and Ferb), Jim Moriarty (BBC Sherlock), Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean), Princess Yue (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Asami (The Legend of Korra), Cassandra (Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure), Evelyn Deavor (Incredibles 2). And even... even... Sans) from Undertale.
This type of characters is created by those dynamics:
  • Dynamic 1. This character is not the strongest or the most important person in their world (at least at first glance). They can be lonely. However, they are a threat/factor.
  • Dynamic 2. This character could remain passive, but the outside world pushes them to action. Sometimes this character is pushed to a very specific action: self-sacrifice or betrayal.
  • Dynamic 3. This character is very polite or chill or compassionate, even if the outside world is hostile. Even if their compassion is fake.
  • Dynamic 4. Personal world of this character overlaps with / connects to the outside world in interesting ways.
  • Dynamic 5. This character may combine unbreakable power of will with... a lack of will/agenda.
Each dynamic is about some "contradictory connection to the outside world". This is the overarching theme.

Harry Potter and LOTR and Evangelion

Harry Potter) and Frodo and Shinji:
  1. Simplifying, Harry is just a decent wizard, he has no special means of fighting evil; yet he's one of the biggest threats to Voldemort. Frodo is just a hobbit, not a warrior or wizard; yet he proves to be one of the crucial people for defeating Sauron. Shinji is just a teen; yet he plays a very important role.
  2. Harry gets into most adventures "accidentally" or it's a Dumbledore's plan. Frodo was given a mission by Gandalf and it all went downhill/uphill from there. Shinji was called up by his father.
  3. Harry can get angry, but fundamentally he's chill and compassionate. Frodo barely snaps while carrying the most manipulative evil artifact ever. Shinji is apathetic and reluctant.
  4. Till the very end, Harry remains just a normal teen in the company of friends; yet he's on a world-saving mission. Till the very end, Frodo is just a hobbit in the company of his friend Sam; yet they are on the world-saving mission. Till the very EoE, Shinji is just a teen (not) sorting out his problems; yet he routinely saves the world.
  5. Both Harry and Frodo have strong wills (to resist mind control and disregard death), but they don't have much personal agenda. Shinji doesn't have any explicit goals either; and he has the will to remain more stable than Asuka.
All three fit the overarching theme "contradictory connection to the outside world".

One-Punch Man

Saitama):
  1. Saitama appears to most people as a weak hero (in actuality he can one shot one punch anyone and anything), so he is not treated as an important/famous person. But he is a threat.
  2. Saitama behaves as if he gets dragged into a mess passively/accidentally.
  3. Saitama is fundamentally chill because of his power. If he wasn't chill, he would destroy the Earth.
  4. Saitama behaves as if he's just a regular guy who reacts to regular inconveniences. Even though he fixes global events.
  5. Saitama had the determination to become the strongest being on Earth... but now he's bored/depressed without any specific goal.
Saitama has a contradictory connection to the world too.

Berserk

Griffith):
  1. He starts as a very "side character" compared to important figures in the Berserk world. Yet he proves to be a threat/factor.
  2. His goal is formulated mostly in terms of the outside world. To rule, to have a kingdom. "Griffith's goal has always been intrinsically tied to humanity and politics." (c.) PixelDemise. Outside world pushes him to the ultimate action: sacrificing everyone for his dream.
  3. He's polite and... "chill". Great charisma. Even though the world of Berserk is harsh.
  4. On one hand, he is immersed in the world of politics. On another hand, he is in the campy company of the Hawk. On one hand, he dreams about a kingdom. On another hand, he forgets his dreams because of Guts. = Outside world interestingly overlaps with the personal world.
  5. Unlike others, Griffith does have an explicit goal/agenda. It is still vague, though.

Undertale

Sans) is one of the farthest outliers, but he's got this:
  1. An extremely intelligent and observant "side character". The weakest monster and the most overpowered threat.
  2. Forced to fight by a very strange world. Against a very strange world. By "strange" I mean resetting, consuming timelines.
  3. Always "polite" (on a deep level), i.e. mostly unfazed by the most strange and most horrible events. Never rules out your last chance to be a good person. Has unconditional compassion, even if it was caused by a promise.
  4. Lonely, but has a ton of friends. Combines a regular citizen and... a science researcher / holder of esoteric knowledge.
  5. Unbreakable will and seeming laziness.
He's got that "contradictory connection to the outside world". But he probably has another major theme which may overshadow this.
https://preview.redd.it/gk6emuvp69ra1.png?width=90&format=png&auto=webp&s=f2b78a57dbcd28c517f0f7f325e5228e21f25490

Guts

I think Guts) is a rare character in fiction. Here're some of his dynamics I can think of:
  • Dynamic 1. He lives in the ruins of his past personal world.
  • Dynamic 2. He lives in the ruins of his past relationships.
  • Dynamic 3. He looks for a part of his past personal world. A part of his past relationships. Why? To get revenge or some other important transformation.
  • Dynamic 4. Guts is ready to fight the entire world. Even though he doesn't care about the fight itself.
I think Guts is similar to Zagreus) from the game Hades 2020. Zagreus has a much nicer version of the story:
  1. Zagreus lives in the ruins of his possible personal world.
  2. Zagreus lives in the ruins of his possible relationships (with his parents).
  3. Zagreus looks for a part of his past personal world. A part of his [possible] past relationships. To restore what "could have been".
  4. Zagreus is ready to fight the entire Underworld. Even though he doesn't care about the fight itself.
Instead of looking for Griffith, Zagreus is looking for his mother. Who had to hide/be hidden.
The overarching theme is "struggler".
Strugglers

Schnoz

Schnoz ...
Characters like Schnoz are created by those dynamics:
  1. Sniff.
  2. Sneeze.
  3. Exhale.
  4. Appeadisappear.
  5. Suck you in/suck you out.
The overarching theme is "vacuum control".

2023.04.01 12:22 noisex Question about Hive Desoleum Primus

It's my first time as GM in a W40k rpg and I'm trying to visualize how hive cities are built. One of the things that are not clear to me is how the "sky" in their huge upper and main hive is. What do you see? What are the main sources of light?

2023.04.01 06:48 Snoo_89252 Tummy tuck without lipo

Hi everyone, I recently had a consult with a surgeon for a mummy makeover. He said id be a good candidate for a breast lift (no implants or reduction - my preference and he agreed) and a tummy tuck with muscle repair. He’s very well respected and is Renowned for breast surgery and I have seen his “work” in person (a friend used him a patient was kind enough on the day to let me see her wonderful results at 4 months when I had my consult) however the tummy tuck I have less of an understanding of. My stomach has always carried excess fat and I had always assumed I’d need lipo with my tummy tuck for my flanks and entire belly area but he doesn’t do lipo. I was told my his practice manager that instead he cuts fat out. Has anyone else had this? I’m on the upper end of a healthy weight but definitely carry most of my fat in my stomach so I’m concerned that this method will “miss bits” that lipo would help to contour. I was told that cutting fat out takes longer which is why other surgeons usually opt for lipo but I’ve only ever hear of this method from this surgeon and Google isn’t shedding any more light! Would love to understand the pros and cons of cutting the fat away vs adding lipo from another source!

2023.04.01 05:40 stlatos Pashto m- entries by Georg Morgenstierne

Ps. m- entries recorded and/or analyzed by Georg Morgenstierne in which no ety. given or more notes needed:
*mazdu(r\n)- > Skt. mástu- ‘sour cream’, Ps. matar ‘coagulated milk’, Arm. macun ‘sour coagulated milk’
If -r and -n are old, it would be evidence that Arm. u-stems in *-ur > -r in nom. and -un- in pl. retain an old IE feature. The change of *st > *ts also in *bhrusto- > Go. brusts, OHG brust, *brust > *rbust > *rbuts > Arm. erbuc ‘breast of animals’; *westi- > Latin vestis, Welsh gwisg ‘garment/clothing’, Go. wasti, Arm. z-gest, aṙa-gast ‘curtain’, aṙi-gac ‘apron’; *wesnūmi > z-genum ‘put on clothes’, *wastnūmi > z-gacnum.
The above might show opt. zd > st or the opposite (as in G. masdós / maz[d]ós / masthós / mastós ‘breast/udder’ ). The same probably in:
Skt. mṛḍīká-m ‘compassion/favor’, Av. marždika- ‘pity’, Ps. marasta ‘favor’
The changes in pk^ten- ‘comb’ > Latin pecten, Greek *ktens > kteís, *vẓan-čī > Ps. ẓmanj have been disputed, but v > m in a specific environment is not odd; it seems opt. in Dardic:
Skt. náva- ‘ young / new’, Ti. nam
Skt. náva ‘9’, Dm. noo, A. núu, Kv. nu, Ti. nom, Kh. nóγ ‘new’
G plé(w)ō ‘float/sail’, Rom. plemel ‘float/swim’, Skt. prav- ‘swim’
Skt. lopāśá-s > *lovāśá- \ *lovāyá- > Kh. ḷòw, Dk. láač \ ló(o)i ‘fox’, fem. *lovāyī > *lomhāyī > A. luuméei, Pl. lhooméi
Matching this, two words show vy- > mz- :
L. viēre ‘bend/plait/weave’, Skt. vyayati, OCS viti ‘wind/twist’, Ps. *vyay- > mazai ‘twist/thread’, Waz. mǝzzai ‘thread/cord / twisted/turned’
Skt. vyāghrá- ‘tiger’, Ps. mzarai
Seeing it in two words makes it more likely. This probably is because v was underlying w, and wy came to not be allowed at the time. The changes:
vyāghrá- > *vyārágh- > *vzārágh- > *mzāráγ > mzarai
are supported by Dardic *CKa > *CaK
*dloŋgho- ‘long’ > *dlaŋγa- > *dlaŋaγ- > *dlaŋaŋ- > Kv. draŋáň ‘long/tall’, Kt. dragář
*snahgó- ‘snake’ > Skt. nāgá-, *nahág > Kh. naháng ‘ogre’ (with optional g > ng, also seen in the Naga/Nang River (Witzel))
*dhoh3- > G. thoós ‘pointed/sharp’; *dhoh3ro- > Skt. dhā́rā- ‘blade/edge’, Kh. dahár ‘mountain ridge’
(maybe Skt. sarágh- ‘bee’, G. sérphos / surphós ‘wasp?’)
in which both g(h) and r moving might show both were uvular. This is also seen in r > x in Kh. boxt \ boht \ bohrt ‘rock/stone’; orts \ ohts ‘bear’, uxtì ‘next’ ( < *urti ~ Skt. úttara- ‘uppeetc.’). Such odd changes in both branches support its reality.
The source of vyāghrá- is not known, and it could easily be a loan from some unknown language with no other traces remaining. That it also existed in Iranian relatives of Sanskrit is probably seen in the loanwords into Armenian (vagr ‘tiger’, varg ‘lynx’), so the sound changes of *w-w > *w-y suggested for Iranian in https://www.academia.edu/2068497/The\_Old\_Persian\_month\_name\_viyax\_a\_na\_Avestan\_vii%C4%81x\_a\_na\_eloquent\_bragging\_and\_Ossetic\_festivals (The Old Persian month name viyax(a)na-, Avestan viiāx(a)na- ‘eloquent, bragging’ and Ossetic festivals. Alexander Lubotsky) suggest the possibility of *wi-wak- ‘brag, boast, be boastful/loud/boisterous’ >> Sanskrit vivakvánt- ‘eloquent’, vívāk- ‘verbal contest’, Avestan viiāxna- ‘eloquent, bragging’ and some unknown Iranian language with a cognate *viyāxna- > *viyāxra- ‘bragging, boasting, roaring’. I’d assume Sanskrit would borrow *x as kh, but this theoretical language could have voiced *x after vowels, etc. To solve this problem without being too theoretical I’d say that the similar root *wegWh- > *vagh- found in vāghánt- (compare Greek eúkhomai ‘pray/vow/boast’, Latin voveō ‘vow’) could be the real source. Seeing both *wegWh- and *wekW- in Proto-Indo-European, both with unexplained long *-o:- or *-e:- in vāghánt-, vāk) and similar range of meaning makes it likely they were originally the same (Indo-European roots with similar meaning but different voicing of consonants are known), but no consensus exists.
There are many words that might show m-n > m-t, m-r, etc. Ps. matǝ ‘wild boar’ might show the same changes as mástu- : matar after this:
Skt. mánu(ṣ)-, Kh. mànis ‘young bull’, *manus- ‘male (animal)’ > *masnu > *mastu > Ps. matǝ ‘wild boar’
(in which retro. might be caused by u_ in the deep, so when s moved it was lost; hard to know all details).
Some type like:
*mantu-bhandha- ‘hand-joint’ > *martu-bhandha- > Ps. maṛwand ‘wrist’
would show a relation to OE mund ‘hand (of protection)’, OHG munt ‘hand/protection’, Latin manus ‘hand’ (or -r- could be old).
If metathesis in: Av. manaōθri- ‘neck’, *manaθrawi > maraī ‘windpipe/gullet’, Khl. maräí ‘throat’
it would be hard to say which was older, if either, in such an odd word.
The new *-strg- after schwa-deletion seems to simplify to *-rg- or *-s(t)g- in:
Av. mastrǝγan-‘brain/skull’, mǝrγaī ‘temple/front’, D. mask ‘forehead’
Since Skt. namurá- ‘not dying’ might show *ne- was used before P, it could include the word below and Iran. *ne-plh- > *narp- ‘not full > wane (of the moon)’. If *ne- / *me- is behind mamátrai ‘generals’ < *ma-márta- : Skt. amṛta- ‘immortal’ (in the glosses in Hesychius for words from India) because of the similar Persian ‘immortals’ in their armies, it might show the 2 PIE negatives were 1 (also see Tocharian: TA nätsw- ‘starve’, TB mätsts- (likely from *ne-\me-ed- ‘(do) not eat’, and even PIE *mē ‘don’t’ & *nē ‘not’ could be from the same source originally).
Many cognates seem to show *-u- > 0 ( https://www.reddit.com/etymology/comments/w01466/importance\_of\_armenian\_retention\_of\_vowels\_in/ ), maybe *i in *vǝrǝtika- > Av. vǝrǝðka-. This could allow:
*na-madhuka(:) ‘not sweet > bittesousalty’ > *namadka(:)- > *nma:lga: > Ps. mālga ‘salt’, NP namak
I think that Iran. w > v / xW / b / p etc. above was old. This same optionality for v > γW in likely exists in Pashto, where this is not regular:
? > *woPso- > OE wæps \ wæsp, E. wasp, L. vespa, MP vaßz, Baluchi gwabz, Ps. γlawza ‘honey-bee’
Pashto must have had *woPso- > *γWaßza- > *γwawza- > γlawza by w-w dissim.
If this was *momso- > *womso- > *wobso-, it would explain *bž > Baluchi gwabz, *mž > Abarj gonj, etc.
Similarly, in Skt. vamraká-s ‘small ant’, Av. vawžaka- \ vanžaka- ‘scorpion’, D. waranjáa ‘ant’, it seems a cluster like *-rsm- or the like is needed (maybe behind oddities in Arm. cognates), if all these are related. Whatever the origin, it allows dissim. of m-m : *marjmika- ?? >
*mamzrika- > *mazrika- > Ps. mēẓai ‘ant’
which has nothing to do with *meig^h-. I think the same type of explanation separates the two Uralic *kun’s’V- & *kun’s’e- too.
It’s possible met. accounts for:
Skt. músala- ‘wooden pestle / mace/club’, *maulsa- > Kh. màus ‘wooden hoe’, *marsu- > Waz. maẓwai ‘peg’, Arm. masur ‘*nail/*prickle > sweetbrier’
which might be related by loans or opt. change to Skt. mayū́kha-s ‘peg (for hanging)’, Os. mex ‘stake’, etc.
I see no reason why met. couldn’t also work for myawr: Skt. mayū́ra- ‘peacock’, Ps. myawr, Sh. mʌyū́n, Tulu mayil \ mayir, Tamil maññai
in which n / l / r (prev.) exists, maybe showing Dravidian is not the oldest, but instead:
Skt. māyu- ‘bleating/etc’, mayú- ‘monkey?/antelope’, Av. anumaya- ‘sheep’
for various noisy animals (*-u(r) and *-uro- / *-ro- are often variants in IE, more evidence of Arm. -r being old).
Also in the glosses in Hesychius for words from India:
If sámma ‘Indian musical instrument’ shows that *seŋgWhmn- > *saŋghman- > sā́man- ‘song’ was the real source, it might show that some language in India treated this cluster differently. Since there’s some evidence that all ŋ became m first in IE, later most *mK > *ŋK, maybe *saŋghmn- > *samghman- > *samman- > sā́man- vs. sámma (maybe with mm and m-m (across compound boundaries) treated differently). This double-treatment of sā́man- vs. sámma might provide some evidence of that:

2023.04.01 05:16 HydroMagic So... has WotC given up on a celestial option for the PHB?

There's a TL;DR at the bottom for those who don't want to read the ramblings of a stranger.
As most of you know already, we did it. We got the ardling out of the Player's Handbook, and now it can be placed somewhere it actually belongs, maybe like the upcoming Planescape book or something. I'm personally happy with this because I personally wanted them to bring back and expand the aasimar, instead of replacing them (yes, replace) with a new celestial race that takes more than it gives. Yes, I'll admit that the animal heads are a cool concept - it allows us to play dogs (finally) and takes inspiration from various religions, like the Egyptian pantheon or certain depictions of angels. But as I've stated before, they went about this the wrong way. Instead of improving an existing option that has a history (no matter how little detail they have on celestial-related things in 5e), they introduced a new option that split the player base. And not into two camps either. Just like many controversial moves, there were plenty of opinions on the new race, including
I concede to the point that all of the above viewpoints have their arguments. Well, most, anyway. And it doesn't really matter now, as they seem to have already come to the decision that ardlings aren't going to replace aasimar this time around. But what I'm concerned about is the final stance.
I mean, there is some reasoning behind it I guess. The Player's Handbook is supposed to be filled with races that are commonly found throughout most Material Planes. Not to mention that there are 3 or so versions of the aasimar: DMG, VGtM, and MPMM, the last of which is supposed to be compatible with the new vision for D&D, so why rewrite it again? (That one doesn't make sense, because they're putting the Golaith and Orc in the new PHB, despite both appearing in MPMM and the Orc in particular already being printed four times, two of which are the exact same.) And celestials have never been a part of the D&D base books anyways. Why start now?
Of course, that's not the argument I'm going with. At this point, it doesn't feel right to stop trying for one. They were clearly hoping to get a celestial option into the PHB, as we can see from their attempts with the ardling. The tiefling is an irremovable facet of D&D now, why not a mirror of it? Sure, the aasimar hasn't been very popular according to the one chart everyone references when arguing against it, but the fact that it made it on the chart has to account for something, right? Maybe if you linked the aasimar to celestial races and made selecting one actually make an impact, it would do better. It could do better if we tried a bit harder.
But the problem is that the negative feedback regarding the ardling seems to have been taken not as criticism toward the race itself, but resistance to the idea of a celestial race itself. There are no mentions of an upcoming celestial option in either the Druid & Paladin Playtests or any of the recent OneD&D videos, ardling has been moved elsewhere, and the mentioning of aasimar has been kept to a bare minimum due to... some reason. So their current options are to (a) abandon the attempt altogether, (b) make peace with the fact that people are going to complain about reprinting the aasimar again or (c) create another Upper plane descendent, like they didn't just give up on their attempt already. Ideally, I'd like them to redesign the aasimar to actually match the tiefling this time (for instance, since we're changing resistances now, if we go with the angel/archon - guardinal - eladrin celestial options from previous editions, we could do radiant (standard angelic resistance) - cold (beasts can weather the bite of winter) - lightning (seasons and storms work well) resistances). Obviously, they don't have to match, but I'd like to see something there at least.
Of course, my opinion doesn't matter, as I'm just a random guy on the internet. And it's only been one playtest so far. Who knows? Maybe they'll do something for the upcoming UAs.
[TL;DR] Celestial race 2.0 and 2.1 have failed already, but I hope that they keep trying, because I want the tiefling to have its partner. The future as of now doesn't look bright, though.

I think its pretty pointless to reflect on the essays, some of my best work got rejected and waitlisted, while other essays thrown together very quickly led to acceptances. I think so long as you show personality, authenticity, and some humor in your essays, you shouldn't sweat it too much, because the rest is so dependent on your AO and their personal biases.

Reflection:
I severely underestimated how random the college application process is. As mentioned earlier, I saw some surprising disconnects between what I thought would be my most successful applications, and what colleges thought were my most successful applications. I was also surprised by many of the results at my school. The increased number of applications, limited seats, grade inflation, and test-optional policies make college decisions orders of magnitude more unpredictable than what they were even 2-3 years ago.
I obviously don't have any insider info when it comes to the admissions process, but I will give my unsolicited theories anyway. I believe that colleges have a fairly easy time weeding out most applications, and probably are only deliberating between 20-40% of the pool. If you have strong test scores, high GPA, well developed extracurriculars, and solid essays/recommendations, you will most likely be in this group, and you should be very proud, regardless of the decision you ultimately receive. However, considering that many of the most prestigious schools have under 5% acceptance rates, this is no where near enough to guarantee admission.
On the other hand, there are probably some truly outstanding applications, maybe they had exceptional extracurriculars, or achieved the above despite great adversity. These "top 1%" apps will probably have much better chances than the rest of the competitive applicant pool, and could get into multiple highly selective schools. Most of the accepted applicants, including myself, don't have these otherworldly achievements, but it is still possible (and in my opinion, reasonably likely) to get something incredible.
For this 80th-99th percentile range (I'm pulling the numbers out of my ass but you get the gist), I think the decision relies on a ton of miscellaneous factors like personality, fit, interview presentation, and unfortunately AO biases. I'm sure there are some things you can do to optimize your results, but for the most part, decisions in this range are almost entirely random. What I mean by that is, if you made a statistical or ML model to predict decisions based on comprehensive applicant data, it would struggle to perform better than random guessing. So based on that the META of hyper-selective college admissions is clear: Apply to a lot of schools!
I know there are so many highly qualified candidates that missed out on their top choices. Please, do not sell yourself short on what is effectively a series of dice roles that didn't go your way. Have pride in the work you've done throughout school, and aim to progress further at whatever school you end up at. I'm not going to say "iT DoESNt MaTTEr whaT cOLLeGe YoU Go TO!", nobody would be on these subs if it didn't, but remember that high achieving people will continue to achieve highly regardless of location, and in that respect, the college you attend won't have a huge impact on your contributions to the world around you.

2023.04.01 02:27 ChronosBlitz I asked a Chat AI to create a scenario where Jimmy Carter is elected for a second non-consecutive term in 2016. Fair's fair, for a ridiculous scenario it tried its best.

Jimmy Carter, who served as the 39th president of the United States from 1977 to 1981, decided to run for a second term in 2016 at the age of 92. He was motivated by his dissatisfaction with the current political climate and his desire to promote peace and human rights around the world. He won the Democratic nomination after a fierce primary battle with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and others. He faced Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, in the general election.
Carter ran on a platform of restoring trust and integrity in government, reducing military spending and intervention, combating climate change and poverty, and expanding health care and education. He also highlighted his achievements as a former president, such as the Camp David Accords, the Panama Canal Treaties, and the Iran hostage crisis resolution. He appealed to voters who were disillusioned with the establishment and the status quo, as well as those who admired his humanitarian work and moral leadership.
Trump ran on a platform of making America great again, building a wall on the southern border, renegotiating trade deals, defeating ISIS and other terrorist groups, and restoring law and order. He also attacked Carter as weak, senile, and out of touch with reality. He appealed to voters who were angry with the political system and felt left behind by globalization and immigration.
The election was one of the most polarized and contentious in American history. Carter faced many challenges, such as his advanced age, his health issues, his lack of media attention, his low fundraising numbers, and his perceived lack of charisma. He also faced allegations of being soft on Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea, as well as being naive about the threats facing America. Trump faced many challenges as well, such as his lack of political experience, his controversial statements and actions, his multiple scandals and lawsuits, and his rejection by many prominent Republicans.
The election was also influenced by external factors, such as Russian interference in favor of Trump, FBI Director James Comey’s announcement of reopening the investigation into Clinton’s emails days before the election, WikiLeaks’ release of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, and a series of terrorist attacks in Europe and America.
On November 8th, 2016, Carter won the election by a narrow margin of 273 to 265 electoral votes. He lost the popular vote by about 3 million votes to Trump. He won several key swing states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire, and Maine. He also won Georgia, his home state. Trump won most of the South, Midwest, and Mountain West states. He also won Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Arizona, and Nebraska’s second congressional district.
Carter became the oldest person ever elected president at 92 years old. He also became the second president after Grover Cleveland to serve two non-consecutive terms. He was inaugurated on January 20th, 2017. His vice president was Elizabeth Warren , a senator from Massachusetts who was a progressive leader in the Democratic Party.
Carter’s presidency faced many challenges at home and abroad. He had to deal with a hostile Republican-controlled Congress that opposed most of his agenda. He had to cope with a divided nation that was polarized along political , racial , religious , cultural , and economic lines. He had to confront a resurgent Russia that annexed Crimea , intervened in Syria , meddled in other countries’ elections , and threatened NATO allies . He had to negotiate with a nuclear-armed North Korea that tested missiles and bombs , defied sanctions , and provoked South Korea , Japan , China , and America . He had to engage with a rising China that expanded its influence in Asia , Africa , Latin America , and beyond , challenged U.S. interests in trade , human rights , cybersecurity , and maritime disputes , and competed for global leadership . He had to work with a volatile Middle East that was plagued by civil wars , sectarian violence , terrorism , refugees , humanitarian crises , and nuclear proliferation . He had to address a changing world order that was marked by multipolarity , globalization , regionalism , populism , nationalism , authoritarianism , democracy erosion , climate change , pandemics , poverty , inequality , migration , cyberattacks , artificial intelligence , biotechnology , and other emerging issues .
Carter’s presidency also achieved some successes at home and abroad. He restored some trust and civility in government by being honest , humble , respectful , compassionate , and ethical . He reduced military spending and intervention by withdrawing troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, pursuing diplomacy and dialogue with Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea, and supporting human rights and democracy movements around the world. He expanded health care and education by implementing a public option for health insurance, increasing funding for Medicaid and Medicare, raising teacher salaries and student grants, and making community college free. He combated climate change and poverty by investing in renewable energy sources, creating green jobs, imposing a carbon tax, raising the minimum wage, and expanding social programs. He also pardoned all whistleblowers who exposed government wrongdoing, such as Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning.
Carter’s presidency was met with mixed reactions from the American public and the international community. Some praised him for his integrity, courage, wisdom, and compassion. They admired his efforts to promote peace, justice, cooperation, and human dignity. They appreciated his humility, honesty, civility, and spirituality. They respected his achievements as a former president, a Nobel laureate, a humanitarian, and an elder statesman. Others criticized him for his weakness, incompetence, naivete, and irrelevance. They blamed him for the economic stagnation, social unrest, political polarization, and security threats that plagued the country. They resented his interference in other countries’ affairs, his appeasement of America’s enemies, his neglect of America’s allies, and his isolationism from the world stage. They dismissed his legacy as a failed president, a misguided idealist, a sanctimonious moralizer, and a senile relic.

2023.04.01 02:09 Cosmicspider87 Ties to Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein according to Epsteins Black Book

Bill Clinton ( D ) Bill will be getting his own segment. This is the list of people connected to Bill and Epstein.
I am sure there is more to add. This is just from the Black Book

  1. Joe Cashon Joe is a Vice President and helps to manage Northwater’s investments in portfolio companies . Joe comes to Northwater with a diverse background in both private and public sectors, including extensive international business and public affairs experience.

For eight years, Joe worked as a senior aide to President Clinton and in leadership roles at the Clinton Foundation. He is a Graduate of Great Distinction from McGill University.
  2. Mills, Cheryl: Lawyer who defended Bill Clinton during his impeachment trial. She served as deputy White House Counsel for Clinton, Senior Adviser and Counsel for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and Counselor and Chief of Staff during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State. Mills had a key role in Hillary’s email scandal and in Haiti, where the Clintons are heavily involved (https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/17/us/hillary-clinton-cheryl-mills.html
  3. Doug Bands was a longtime adviser to Bill Clinton. He had a substantial part in the creation and inner workings of The Clinton Foundation. Purchased David Rockefeller’s old house in New York City for $20 million. Has been called “the key architect in Clinton’s post-presidency”

  5. Ron Burkle: Billionaire founder of Yucaipa, an investment firm that specialized in buying and selling supermarket chains. Had close ties with Bill Clinton. According to Los Angeles Times, “Bill Clinton’s bromance with Burkle invited scandal.” The LA Times describes how “unverified reports of the two men jetting around in a Burkle 757 filled with attractive young women leached from the tabloids to the mainstream media.” This could be the reason for Burkle’s falling out with Hillary, as he had nothing to do with her campaign. He has hosted the Clintons and President Biden at the Beverly Hills estate and has brought together eclectic groups of celebrities and scholars to his dinner parties, from Warren Beatty to former heads of the CIA. He bought Neverland Ranch
  6. Vikram Chatwal: Actomodel/movie producer and hotel owner in New York City and Miami. Bill Clinton, Prince Nikolaos of Greece, Naomi Campbell, and P. Diddy attended his wedding.

The following website makes some startling connections between Garnero, Epstein, and others (source: https://aeltri.com/2019/02/12/john-of-god-mario-garnero-and-epstein/. Quick summary: Record producer Damon Dash (former co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records with Jay-Z) allegedly raped a supermodel who worked for Naomi Campbell at a party thrown by Garnero source:https://www.standard.co.uk/news/poshs-friend-sued-for-rape-6939248.htmlGarnero has been referred to as a “Rothschild pawn” who tried to help Aecio Neves rise to power. Garnero also appointed “George Soros frontman, Arminio Fraga, who worked in Soros’ Quantum Fund, as Minister of the Economy.”
  10. Ginsberg, Gary: Former Executive VP of Global Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, the fourth-largest media group in the world prior to splitting in 2013. Ginsberg was a close confidant of Rupert Murdoch and Peter Chernin while at News Corp. Ginsberg also served in the Clinton Administration at the White House Counsel’s Office and Department of Justice. Ginsberg has brokered meetings between Rupert Murdoch and the Clintons, as well as Obama. Ginsberg is currently on the Board of Directors of New Visions for Public Schools, which designs course curricula for students in NYC. New Visions supports many schools, impacting 230,000 students(source: https://newyorkschooltalk.org/2019/07/at-new-visions-for-public-schools-its-all-about-continuous-school-improvement-hows-that-going/). Their Networks for School Improvement Initiative is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. New Visions also has ties to the Carnegie Foundation, which donates millions of dollars in grants (source: https://www.carnegie.org/grants/grants-database/grantee/new-visions-for-public-schools-inc/#!/grants/grants-database/grant/312395808.0/).

In 1995, Perelman hosted a dinner with Bill Clinton, Jeffrey Epstein, Clinton college friend Arnold Paul Prosperi, Don Johnson, Jimmy Buffett, and Don Fowler, who was the co-chairman of the DNC. More on Perelman later.
  12. Harvey Victoria: Ex-girlfriend of Prince Andrew, Hervey is an English model and socialite. Although her relationship with Andrew didn’t work out, she remained in his inner circle. In 2000, she attended a dinner with Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and Jeffrey Epstein(source: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9844083/lady-victoria-hervey-jeffrey-epstein-too-old/Hervey is also a friend of Ghislaine Maxwell, who introduced her to Epstein and “set her up in one of Epstein’s apartments in New York.” Hervey is the daughter of Victor Hervey, 6th Marquess of Bristol, businessman and member of the House of Lords.

  14. Johnson, Richard & Nadine: Nadine is a millionaire public relations guru. Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine Maxwell’s. Some clients of Nadine Johnson include spirit cooking extraordinaire Marina Abramovic and hotelier Andre Balazs, good friend of Ghislaine. Richard is one of the most well-known gossip columnists and was the editor of Page Six for twenty-five years. There is a great thread detailing the Johnsons’ ties to the Clintons, Balazs, and others here (source: https://threader.app/thread/1162148078981394432). Basically, Richard Johnson is friendly with the Clintons and, as Page Six Editor, purposely did not report or downplayed stories on the Clintons and Nadine’s clients. He also took bribes. Considering Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine, it would not be a stretch to assume that Richard could have buried stories on Maxwell and Epstein.
  15. Kersner, Sol: South African accountant and hotel and casino magnate who died of cancer in 2020. Kerzner was a close friend of Donald Trump. They even worked together to create The Palm, a man-made island off the coast of Dubai (source: https://www.ft.com/content/46393280-d9f9-11da-b7de-0000779e2340). Kerzner was also close friends with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/sarah-ferguson-the-duchess-of-york-sol-kerzner-chairman-and-news-photo/83768272), Naomi Campbell (https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/naomi-campbell-and-sol-kerzner-pose-backstage-during-the-news-photo/82869744), and Bill Clinton (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8144647/As-Sol-Kerzner-dies-aged-84-RICHARD-KAY-looks-riotously-louche-life.html). Kerzner was very good friends with Nelson Mandela and built his casino resorts with Gerard Inzerillo
  16. Kissinger, Dr. Henry A: Former U.S. Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under Nixon. Kissinger has long been accused of committing war crimes (ex: carpet bombing Cambodia, installing fascist governments in Chile and Argentina, genocide, extending our stay in Vietnam, etc) yet somehow managed to win a Nobel Peace Prize in 1973. Kissinger once said, “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” Kissinger served with Epstein on the Trilateral Commission. Kissinger has also been a member of the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Aspen Institute, and Bohemian Grove. Long thought to be an advocate for a globalist New World Order, Kissinger is a scumbag of the highest order. His connections with Gates, the Clintons, Bush Sr. and Jr., the Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds are well-documented. If anyone here has ever done any research regarding the NWO, you have undoubtedly seen Kissinger’s name several times.
  17. Levine, Phillip: Ex-Miami Beach mayor and close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton. He claims that he doesn’t know how Epstein got his contact information… all 13 phone numbers, including those of his driver and housekeepers (https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/ex-miami-beach-mayor-philip-levine-listed-13-times-in-jeffrey-epsteins-black-book-11242116
  18. Magaziner, Ira C: Was the senior advisor of policy development for President Bill Clinton. He now serves in a leadership role for the Clinton Foundation.

Remember, the Clintons helped bail out their colleague, Laura Silsby, who was caught trying to traffick 33 Haitian children (https://harvardhrj.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/14/2009/09/King.pdf). Most importantly, Magaziner traveled on the Lolita Express on several occasions (https://www.golocalprov.com/news/exclusive-sexual-predator-jeffrey-epstein-tied-to-ris-ira-magaziner-father), including the infamous flight that included Epstein, Clinton, Kevin Spacey, Naomi Campbell, and Chris Tucker. Magaziner also flew with Ghislaine Maxwell, also (https://www.golocalprov.com/news/new-epstein-associate-maxwell-who-flew-with-ira-magaziner-arrested).
  19. Manzano, Jose Luis & Alejandra: Jose Luis is an Argentine businessman and former politician. He is a partner in Grupo America, the second largest multimedia group in the country. He has given money to the Clinton Foundation and The Climate Reality Project ran by Al Gore.

It's kind of hard to describe here but I thought it was pretty solid, like at least a 7 (?)
Supplementals-- Also pretty good, not much to say here as most were "why us"
Decisions
Acceptances:
Waitlists:
Rejections:
Tips
Some things that might really be helpful for anyone reading this!!
Deadlines: The Coalition application will let you apply to an unlimited number of schools, and since you submit your writing supplement separately, you can often complete them after the application deadline, sometimes up to a month late. I didn't complete my Duke or Rice writing supplements. Without me asking, Duke extended my deadline to Feb. 1 and gave me a fee waiver, and Rice extended mine for about a week; Tufts also extended my deadline to Jan. 31. I'm definitely not trying to encourage anyone to submit everything late, but sometimes things happen.
Fly- in programs- if you apply to schools' fly-ins, it will count majorly for demonstrated interest and some will give you fee waivers, even if you aren't accepted (Rice and WashU). It's also a really fun experience as they tend to cover your travel expenses and provide housing, food etc, and you can get a feel for the campus and meet new people!
Additional Notes
I definitely would do a lot of things differently if I could go back in time...I started the whole process really late, a little bit in the spring of my junior year and then really starting to in the fall of my senior year. I also got burned out when trying to complete supplements for more competitive schools, and would often hit a dead end and wonder "why am I even trying with my stats?" and lo and behold, I left them incomplete. If I could do it again, I would have stopped worrying about the things I couldn't control and put forth my best effort to make what I could control the best that I could. I hit a mental block several times throughout the process and was very exhausted by the end.
As someone with ADHD I do get really disorganized with school, and I was never really someone who was the top of the class in grades and was never really a STEM- heavy person: my grades were typically A-s in English/history classes and Bs in STEM classes.
Since I have a high test score and lower GPA, I felt that I couldn't really predict where I would get in, contributing to me applying to so many colleges. I also didn't know if I wanted to go to a LAC or a university, which was another contributor. I'm very lucky that the application fees didn't pose a significant burden to me and am incredibly grateful that I received the opportunities I did.
I hope this information helps someone in the future (coming from someone who spent way too much time procrastinating scrolling on here lol), and congrats to everyone this year on app season almost being over!

2023.04.01 01:34 CharacterEnergy9838 HELP 4-lock (2016 ram outdoorsman 5.7)

So I recently purchased a 2016 Dodge ram outdoorsman 1500 5.7 crew cab.
The interesting feature in this truck is the four-wheel drive system. I have a different transfer case than most ram pickups I cannot remember the specific name for it. It's like a b44 instead of a b45. Either way the only options for four wheel drive is 4-lock or 4- low.
I live in the upper Peninsula of Michigan and today we had a massive snowstorm hit that dumped shy of a foot on us. Road conditions were terrible on my way to work so I put it in four lock and did 50 to 55 mph 7 miles to work. When I left work I hit a large snow burm in the middle of the road and right after that started hearing clicking noise from front passenger side.
I figured CV shaft, put the truck up and pulled CV shaft and boot was ripped as well as CV joints shot. I replaced it with a new one.
My concern is did I do damage to the CV from 4 lock at 50mph? Or was the joint already on it's way out and I helped it along by putting that extra force running 4wd.
I did some research and everything I read said 45 to 55 in slippery road conditions is fine when using 4lock. But I can't help but worry about possible other damage?

2023.04.01 01:30 Select_Plane487 In a healthy third trimester pregnancy, what are arguments that the right of bodily autonomy means the pregnant individual has the right to dictate the fetus to be removed specifically in a manner that requires its death, as opposed to delivery induction?

ETA: I have realized that I should not be burning energy over such rare cases when every day greater, countless harms are occurring under the current state of US law. I've simply engaged in navel gazing. Thanks to all who discussed and helped me understand that, even though I am still unsure of my personal (non legal) feelings on this extremely narrow question.
~~
Due to the right of bodily autonomy, I support a pregnant person's right to end a pregnancy, up until the point of birth. However, starting with approximately the third trimester, and assuming no conditions incompatible with life or quality of life, I struggle to support any method of ending a healthy third trimester pregnancy besides induced delivery (or c-section). This is for two reasons. First, fetal pain and consciousness are possibilities are 24 weeks (source 1; source 2). Second, induction is an option to end the pregnancy in a timely manner without necessitating the fetus' death, and by the third trimester, it is not clear to me if delivery is associated with a considerably different in risk or mechanism compared to abortion methods that require ending the fetus' life. Let us assume the pregnant person can surrender the infant immediately after delivery and that delivery and abortion costs are not significantly different.
Continuing, although third trimester abortions are rare, several states do allow them, for any reason, such as the DuPont Clinic in DC (source). Partners in Abortion Care, also in DC, will terminate up to 34 weeks (source). Many third trimester abortions are for tragic medical reasons, but many occur because of non-medical reasons such as late discovery of pregnancy or delays/barriers to obtaining abortion (source). We legislate for many rare events, so rarity to me, by itself, is not a reason to ignore this question. Similarly, a doctor's legal right to refuse to perform a procedure does not seem an appropriate safeguard, as I feel a provider's personal moral beliefs should not dictate access to care that society and medical boards have otherwise generally deemed appropriate (consider the inappropriateness of a pharmacist refusing to fill a contraceptive prescription).
As a related question, most later abortions involve an injection into the fetal heart to ensure its demise prior to removal (source). I was relieved the fetus, which may have capacity to feel pain and possibly possesses a form of sentience (see prior sources), receives this small act of mercy. Then I considered, what if the pregnant person did not consent to the injection, despite the relatively small risk and pain associated with it? Does the pregnant person's absolute autonomy in this case override what I perceive as the fetus' right to experience the most painless death possible?
With all that in mind, in the third trimester, what are arguments that the right of bodily autonomy means the pregnant individual should be able to dictate the fetus be removed in a manner that requires its death, as opposed to delivery induction? Should the pregnant person's right to autonomy include refusal to allow initiating fetal demise via injection prior to a third trimester abortion?
Again, I support abortion freely and unfettered through the end of the second trimester. After that, it becomes a moral quandary for me. I am hoping other pro-choice folks can explain the flaws in my reasoning.
