2023.06.02 10:30 Key_Extension_6003 Request for World Truths
Hey everybody, I'm experimenting with using chatGPT to make creative plots for a world based the World Truths. My creativity has hit a wall though so I'd be interested in seeing other peoples World Truths and seeing if generates any useful plots. I'm looking at both Ironsworn and Starforged.
If you post your world truths in thread I'll reply with what chatGPT thinks are some good plots. I'll share mine to start.
Ironsworn: Chaos Star
Beings of immense destructive capability broke through the walls of reality and started the ‘unmaking’.
Immune to any weapon and impossible to capture they were drawn toward the densest populations of human beings.
The only way to escape was an experimental drive that was rushed from a crackpot theory in an underfunded and fringe university research department to being installed in tens of thousands of colony ships.
Many scientists warned of dire consequences but their cries went unheard as humanity itself scrambled to escape the attacks.
The few survivors are scattered to the solar winds, eeking out an existence in a cold and lonely universe that feels to some like humanities swan song while others believe that order will emerge from the chaos.
A weird ore appeared in the universe after the Chaos Entities appeared. Oath’s are sworn upon it.
The forge is a lawless place were only power holds sway.
Faith is as diverse as the people that made it out.
Chaos energy is magic. The quantum engines were inspired by fundamental forces that few have learned to master. But in this new universe, those who work with chaos are growing and may just be able to fight the entities.
There are no communications hubs, no infrastructure. The only communication is word of mouth as ships pass in the deep of space and share what they know.
Healers are rare and generally ill equipment with no means or knowledge of how to build advanced medical equipment and pharmaceuticals.
Vestiges of AI are coveted and generally wielded by those in power.
Ships desperate enough for AI install Clippy.
Resources are far to precious to support organized fighting forces.
Latent Chaos Mutation (LCM) impacts all lifeforms but especially embryos. Working with livestock grown from cloning pods can be an especially risqué proposition.
Nobody knows if anything came before, if anything worth knowing about survived. Perhaps the survivors of the forge will uncover these secrets.
Many insist they aren’t real but those spacers that still explore the expanse of space have theories.
GPT Plot ideas...
- The Last Sanctuary: The story follows a small group of survivors who managed to find refuge on a hidden planet, shielded from the Chaos Entities. As their supplies dwindle and tensions rise, they discover that the planet holds a dark secret, and they must confront the horrors lurking in the shadows before they consume them all.
- The Quantum Seekers: A band of renegade scientists and explorers embarks on a perilous journey through uncharted space, searching for remnants of the ancient Precursors. As they delve deeper into the unknown, they encounter bizarre phenomena and nightmarish creatures, all while struggling to maintain their sanity and trust in one another.
- The Cursed Healer: A desperate community in need of medical assistance pleads for the help of a renowned healer rumored to possess extraordinary powers. However, as the healer arrives and begins treating the sick, their true nature is revealed, and the survivors must face the terrifying consequences of relying on forbidden chaos magic for salvation.
- Shadows of Betrayal: A faction of ruthless scavengers and pirates seeks to harness the power of chaos energy to control the remaining colonies and establish their dominance. As their influence grows, a group of unlikely allies, including former enemies and outcasts, must unite to uncover their plans and prevent them from plunging the fragile remnants of humanity into even deeper darkness.
- Echoes of the Past: A haunted colony ship drifts aimlessly through space, with its AI malfunctioning and its crew mysteriously disappearing one by one. A group of survivors aboard a passing ship responds to its distress signal and boards the derelict vessel, only to find themselves trapped in a twisted labyrinth where reality warps and nightmares come to life. They must uncover the ship's dark history and find a way to escape before they too become lost in the abyss.
- The Oracle's Call: Rumors circulate among the scattered colonies about an enigmatic figure known as the Oracle, who possesses the ability to commune with the Chaos Entities. Desperate to find answers and a way to fight back, a group of survivors sets out on a dangerous quest to seek out the Oracle's hidden sanctuary, unaware of the horrors they will encounter and the sacrifices they will have to make to gain the knowledge they seek.
- The Soulforged Blade: Legends speak of a mythical weapon capable of slaying the Chaos Entities and bringing an end to the unmaking. A group of warriors, mages, and scientists embark on a treacherous journey across hostile territories, battling both the Entities and other factions vying for control of the fabled weapon. As they struggle to unlock the blade's true power, they must confront their deepest fears and face the question of whether the price of victory is worth paying.

2023.06.02 10:29 Exciting_Elephant755 Can you update the BIOS without accessing the BIOS?
A bit back my GF built a computer she never got working. Today she let me see if I could find the problem. Though I could fix a few things, it ended up getting stuck in a state of powering on for a bit and then restarting. Nothing is displayed on the monitor and by testing different parts and the way things light up it seems to be a problem with either the motherboard or the CPU. I don’t know everything about the PC (or most PCs in general) but she has assured me it’s all compatible. After researching I found the BIOS most likely isn’t updated to support her CPU. I’ve talked to two people who have more knowledge than me and they assured me this is the problem, so I doubt I’m mistaken. If I am correct, is it possible to update the BIOS without being able to access the BIOS?
Here is what I believe the specs of the PC are: CPU: Ryzen 7 5800G GPU: Integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 Motherboard: ASrock b450m steel legend PSU: MSI MPG A850GF RAM: 2 DDR4 (I don’t know the GB) Hard drive: 2TB barracuda
I’m planning on double checking the RAM and doing some other stuff tomorrow, but I’m pretty sure the problem is the BIOS. Thanks to anyone willing help!

2023.06.02 10:27 cedricfernandomd Understanding the Alarming Rise in Prescription Pain Pill Overdoses
| || | submitted by cedricfernandomd to u/cedricfernandomd [link] [comments]
Prescription pain pill overdoses have reached epidemic proportions over the past decade, posing a significant public health crisis
. The soaring rates of overdoses associated with prescription opioids have quadrupled, demanding urgent attention and action. This article aims to shed light on the gravity of the situation, explore the underlying factors driving this epidemic, and propose strategies to combat this escalating issue for the well-being of individuals and society.
The Startling Surge in Prescription Pain Pill Overdoses
The alarming rise in prescription pain pill overdoses has cast a shadow over public health. In the last decade, the number of deaths from opioid overdoses has quadrupled, leaving behind a devastating trail of broken lives and shattered families.
Factors Driving the Epidemic
Overprescribing and Accessibility
A significant contributor to the surge in prescription pain pill overdoses is the prevalence of overprescribing and easy accessibility to these medications. Opioids were once widely prescribed for managing pain, leading to abundant these drugs in communities. This excess availability has created a breeding ground for misuse, abuse, and addiction.
Lack of Awareness and Education
Insufficient awareness and education regarding the risks associated with prescription pain pill use have also fueled the epidemic. Many individuals are unaware of the addictive nature of opioids and the potential for overdose. Without proper knowledge, patients may unintentionally misuse or underestimate the dangers of these medications.
Socioeconomic factors, such as unemployment, poverty, and limited access to comprehensive healthcare, play a role in the opioid crisis. These conditions increase vulnerability to pain, both physical and emotional, leading individuals to seek solace in prescription pain pills. Unfortunately, this coping mechanism often results in dependence, addiction, and overdose.
Influence of the Pharmaceutical Industry
The pharmaceutical industry's influence in promoting prescription opioids cannot be ignored. Aggressive marketing tactics, combined with misleading claims about the safety and efficacy of these medications, have contributed to the crisis. Increased prescription rates driven by pharmaceutical marketing have fueled the availability and misuse of these powerful drugs.
Strategies to Address the Epidemic
Comprehensive Education and Awareness Campaigns
Cedric Fernando MD added that launching widespread education campaigns to raise awareness about the risks and potential consequences of prescription pain pill use is crucial. These campaigns should target healthcare professionals, patients, and the general public, providing accurate information and dispelling myths surrounding opioids.
Promoting Responsible Prescribing Practices
Implementing strict guidelines and regulations for healthcare professionals regarding opioid prescriptions is essential. Encouraging evidence-based practices, utilizing alternative pain management approaches, and closely monitoring prescription patterns can help curb the overprescribing of opioids.
Expanding Access to Treatment and Support Services
Increasing access to addiction treatment and support services is vital to addressing the underlying issues fueling the epidemic. This includes enhancing the availability of medication-assisted treatment, counseling services, and support groups for individuals struggling with opioid addiction.
Strengthening Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs
Enhancing prescription drug monitoring programs allows for more effective tracking and monitoring of opioid prescriptions. By identifying individuals at risk for overdose or engaging in doctor shopping, healthcare providers can intervene and provide necessary interventions, including addiction treatment and support.
Collaborative Efforts and Community Engagement
Addressing the prescription pain pill overdose epidemic requires collaborative efforts from various stakeholders. Engaging healthcare professionals
, policymakers, law enforcement agencies, community organizations, and individuals affected by the crisis can foster a unified approach to prevention, treatment, and support.

2023.06.02 10:24 YujiMakoto Nico Friendship Level 5 scene
I’ve watched several versions of this scene on YouTube and in all of them you can see Nico and Hunter taking while the player sees it from an outside view as if you’re watching them from outside the window.
When I got to the scene, every time it panned to outside the window, the window was completely blurry/fogged over and I couldn’t see Nico or Hunter, only the conversation they were having.
Is this a glitch?

2023.06.02 10:23 AbsolutelyUnlikely Pretty weird that people were in favor of silencing a movie that is well liked by those who watched it. What Is Social Media?
2023.06.02 10:12 LunaTheMoonSpirit I don’t know what the hell is even happening?
So, I’m by no means a good kid or anything and I have no intentions of stopping. I smoke nic and weed, but I honestly don’t really enjoy smoking weed but I decided to use it to sleep cuz it usually knocks me out. So I’ve been suffering with Derealization for awhile now, ever since 8th grade, I’m in 10th. This was before I started smoking and I honestly found the Nicotine kind of helped. But ever since I took it a night ago the Derealization got so bad, like I feel like I’m in a huge dream and it got so much worse I have awful brain fog and I don’t know what to do. I have Severe Depression and I have a Psychiatrist so I don’t know to tell him or not. But honestly I’m so tired of everybody telling me to quite smoking nic, I knew what I got myself into from the very moment I first vaped, I’ve always known how horrible it is, and I don’t want to quit. It’s difficult to explain why since it’s not one solid reason, but a bunch of reasons. It’s 1 AM right now so I’m gonna post this go to sleep and hope I don’t get a bunch of condescending armchair experts or parents or whatever tryna ride my ass and condescend me and shit since I always have those kinds of people but I just need some non condescending support meybe??? Idk

2023.06.02 10:05 jgolden8881 CSF Leak
Bear with me please — I think I have cerebrospinal fluid leak. My symptoms are : - Clear fluid and coming from nose and ears - When I lay down it feels like fluid is building up on the side in laying on - Feeling of fluid build up behind/on the side of eye -Vision changes -Brain Fog
Now, I chalked this up to being a symptom of my MS but when I briefly mentioned to my neuro she looked at me as if she was not following. I have just started Tysabri. My real concern lies with the following: if one has a CSF leak, they are more likely to get meningitis. I’m thinking that this would not be ideal to have if you are on Tysabri which is blocking your immune system from getting to the brain.
If anyone has ANYTHING on this please share. Mainly regarding if 1) you have the symptoms described above and it has been confirmed to be from the MS 2) you think my logic might have some validity for concern about being on Tysabri.

2023.06.02 10:03 fatehaly Mystery of Messi: Discover the incredible skill and style of football’s greatest legend
2023.06.02 10:03 shaunoxley Metal Gear Solid opening story: CHATGPT vs Bing AI (Which do you prefer?)
So I put into ChatGPT and Bing AI: Write a beginning to a story based on Metal Gear Solid, with Solid Snake sneaking into Shadow Moses.
Let me know which one you prefer! 😂
Deep within the icy wilderness of Alaska, a clandestine facility known as Shadow Moses stood as a testament to secrecy and intrigue. Its towering walls and impenetrable defenses concealed the dark secrets harbored within its confines. And on this fateful night, a legendary operative known as Solid Snake prepared to infiltrate the heart of this enigmatic fortress.
With the moon veiled behind a thick layer of clouds, casting an eerie glow on the snow-covered landscape, Snake made his approach. His footsteps muffled by the dense accumulation of winter's embrace, he navigated the treacherous terrain with precision and stealth. His mission: to uncover a conspiracy that threatened not only the world but his very existence.
As Snake neared the perimeter, his senses heightened. The frigid wind whispered through the trees, carrying with it an ominous foreboding. His keen eyes surveyed the barbed wire fences, motion sensors, and armed guards that stood as obstacles to his objective. But Snake was no ordinary soldier. Trained in the art of infiltration, he was the epitome of a lone wolf, accustomed to facing insurmountable odds.
Drawing upon his arsenal of skills and experience, Snake meticulously disabled the security measures one by one, leaving no trace of his presence. Each calculated step brought him closer to the heart of Shadow Moses, where answers awaited him—answers that would shatter his perceptions and ignite a battle for survival against an unimaginable threat.
As the biting cold gnawed at his bones and his breath crystallized in the frigid air, Solid Snake embraced the solitary path he had chosen. Unwavering in his determination, he knew the risks that lay ahead. The line between hero and villain, truth and deception, would blur within those steel walls. But Snake was prepared to navigate the shadows, confront the demons of his past, and emerge victorious against all odds.
The stage was set for a battle that would not only shape Snake's destiny but determine the fate of the world. With each stealthy footstep, he disappeared further into the darkness, ready to face the trials that awaited him within the enigmatic labyrinth of Shadow Moses.
The night was cold and dark as Solid Snake approached the island of shadow moses in a stealth submarine. He had been briefed by his former commander, Roy Campbell, that a rogue unit of genetically enhanced soldiers called FOXHOUND had seized control of a nuclear weapons disposal facility on the island and threatened to launch a nuclear strike if their demands were not met. Snake’s mission was to infiltrate the base, rescue the hostages, and stop the launch.
He checked his equipment and weapons: a tranquilizer gun, a combat knife, a pair of binoculars, a codec radio, and a pack of cigarettes. He also wore a special suit that could blend in with the environment and mask his body heat. He was ready for anything.
He surfaced near the shore and climbed out of the submarine. He contacted Campbell via codec.
“Snake, this is Campbell. Can you hear me?”
“Loud and clear. What’s the situation?”
“Snake, you’ll have two mission objectives. First, you’re to rescue DARPA Chief Donald Anderson and the president of ArmsTech, Kenneth Baker. Both are being held as hostages.”
“Where are they?”
“According to the intelligence we’ve received, they’re probably being held in the second floor basement of the nuclear warhead storage building.”
“And the second objective?”
“Snake, it’s a nuclear weapon. It’s called Metal Gear.”
“It’s a bipedal tank that can launch a nuclear missile from any terrain. It can walk on land, swim in water, and even fly in the air. It’s the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.”
“And FOXHOUND has it?”
“That’s right. They’re planning to use it to blackmail the world. You have to stop them before they launch it.”
“How do I do that?”
“That’s what you’re here to find out. Snake, you’re the only one who can do this. You’re a legend in the special forces. A hero.”
“I’m no hero. Never was. Never will be.”
“Just an old killer hired to do some wet work.”
“Snake, that’s not true. You saved the world from a nuclear war two years ago. You’re a hero to me and to everyone in this unit.”
“Whatever. Let’s get this over with.”
“Snake, be careful. You’re not going in alone. You’ll be supported by a team of specialists via codec. They’ll give you advice and information on your mission. Use this frequency to contact me: 140.85.”
“Good luck, Snake.”
Snake ended the call and looked at the island. He saw a helipad, a guard tower, and a snowfield. He decided to head for the helipad first. He moved quietly and cautiously, avoiding the searchlights and the patrolling guards. He reached the helipad and hid behind a crate. He saw a large cargo plane parked on the pad. He wondered what it was carrying.
He heard a voice from his codec.
“Snake, this is Mei Ling. I’m your data analyst and save support. I’ll be monitoring your vital signs and recording your mission data. If you want to save, call me on this frequency: 140.96.”
“Thanks, Mei Ling.”
“Snake, I also have something to tell you. There’s a radar on the upper right corner of your soliton radar screen. It shows enemy positions and their field of vision. Be careful, if you’re spotted by the enemy, the radar will be jammed and you’ll have to fight your way out.”
“I see. Thanks for the tip.”
“Snake, one more thing. Don’t kill any of the guards if you can help it. They’re not your enemies. They’re just doing their job.”
“I know that. But sometimes it’s kill or be killed.”
“I understand, Snake. But remember, this is a sneaking mission. The more noise you make, the more trouble you’ll have.”
“I got it, Mei Ling.”
Snake hung up and looked around. He saw a vent on the wall near the plane. He decided to crawl inside and see where it led.

2023.06.02 09:57 Crescent_Moon734 An analysis of AmEN!'s artwork and how it links to the rest of the EPs.
A 12th Grade Advanced English student's opinion :)
Let me preface this with saying that there is no way of knowing of this analysis is accurate, as the band is extremely unpredictable, and this is all based on numerous assumptions. I will present an alternate theory at the end. Also sorry for the length lol
The character who is ascending is the same character who is at the focus of PH:SH's artwork, as the head shape, third eye, body type, and body colour are all the same. Furthermore, the flowers at the bottom of the artwork are the same as the flowers at the bottom of PH:SH's artwork. The residents of this world all look similar between the two artworks, which allows us to fully assume that the stories of the 4 EP's will be all set in the same storyline.
Where the artworks differ is their art style. PH:SH is stylised as an ancient folklore painting with warm colours, suggesting that it is the past in which the residents of this world take comfort in. However, AmEN!'s artwork is smooth and dreamlike with colder colours, similar to an AI artwork. Considering that AI is perceived as a threat to the modern world, it can be interpreted that the world perceives their protagonist's ascention as an unprecidented event bringing uncertain times and threats; it is the here and now of this world.
This will relate to Oli's personal life through the use of an allegory. For those of you unaware, an allegory is a literary technique where a compelte story has a second meaning to it which relates to the authors own context. I believe that the story presented by these artworks has some relation to Oli's life and mental health. He was feeling okay and confortable (EP 1's artwork) until something (Covid) forced change and unpredictability (EP 2's artwork).
From here. Some predictions can be made. The third EP will be futuristic in their art styles, representing the unkown future of their world and meshing well with the musical soundscapes of the EP. In terms of Oli and the allegory, it would represent the unpredictability of the future, and how he cannot know how his life and mental health will pan out. The final EP's artwork will represent this world's Armageddon, with our protagonist at the focal point of it; meshing with the "heavy" musical sound. Regarding the allegory, it would represent the certainty of death as a human experience. Oli knows that death will be the ultimate and inescapable end; to nothingness we return after death, completing the cycle of life, and the band would complete their musical journey back to where they started.
The alternate theory is that DiE4U and sTrAnGeRs are singles from the second EP, LosT is from the third, and AmEN! is from the last, with the ascention artwork forsgadowing the band's ascention to legend status by ending their career by returning to their roots.
Of course, all of this is speculative and with the band being the way they are, it is impossible to predict if any of these pretictions will eventuate; I guess we'll have to wait and see.

2023.06.02 09:56 Eulibo Ashe becoming a mother would be a fantastic way to progress her story
As strange as it is, League of Legends doesn’t have any mother characters (no Elise or Rek’sai don’t count). This is not necessarily a bad thing but a missed opportunity to represent the awesomeness of mothers and beauty of motherhood.
Who better to become a mother than Ashe, the Warmother of the Avarosans? It is evident she and Tryndamere already have genuine feelings for each other. It would only be naturally for them to make a baby. A new life born in a changing Freljord.
This baby would be an extension of everything Ashe fights for, a future of peace and unity. At the very least, it would certainly make things more interesting for Ashe.

2023.06.02 09:56 Evening-Painter5024 Bad Research Experience - What should I do?
So I've been working in a translational medicine lab since spring semester. It was slow in the Spring, but I figured it would pick up in the summer. So far, all I've done is run extremely long PCR and gel experiments. Every day, I spend about 40 minutes doing the same thing as the day before. That's it. I spend the next 5 hours sitting there doing absolutely nothing waiting for the instrumentation to finish running. I've expressed my concerns to the people that are training me, asking for more to do, and I feel like I'm wasting my time. They assure me that it will get better eventually, and that they can't really give me more stuff because I'm not trained yet.
I personally feel very frustrated. I understand that there's not much for me to do, but I just do the same basic things over and over, and don't understand how it will get better. I'm personally a little slower when it comes to doing research, as it often requires several repetitions before I can do it seamlessly myself. The people that are training me have clinic obligations as well and are so busy I don't really get the oversight and training I feel I need.
I could be overreacting--I've only been working for about a week this summer, but I've felt this way since January and just assumed it would get better. It hasn't. It's really frustrating. Spending the summer away from friends and family, waking up early every day, all just to have a really negative experience thus far that doesn't feel like it will improve all too much.
I was thinking about going to school for an MD or PhD after I graduate, but this experience really makes me hate that idea. Biology and chemistry have always been my thing, but now I am unsure if I should even continue on this path. I am really confused as to what I should do. Should I try to stick it out and just hope it works for me? Should I seek a new lab even though it's the summer? I would probably try to avoid translation medical research after this experience. Based off of previous research projects I've worked on in high school, I've found that I enjoy working on hands on projects that keep me busy all day, providing consistent work from 9-5 or 6. While these projects are often more tiring, I've found that they are more fulfilling and I enjoy the fast paced learning and the day to day lifestyle much more. Should I change labs? If so, what subject might be interesting and keep me busy? For reference, I have fairly solid chemistry, physics, and math backgrounds as well.

2023.06.02 09:53 prodshebi I uncovered the terrifying secrets of Chernobyl: the truth will haunt you
My name is Adrian, an investigative journalist from Poland driven by a thirst for uncovering hidden truths. Chernobyl held a profound significance for me, not only as a haunting scar on history but also due to a personal connection. My grandparents had been affected by the disaster, forced to abandon their home and lives. Inspired by their resilience, I embarked on this journey to capture their stories and unravel the mysteries that shrouded Chernobyl. Filled with trepidation and excitement, I packed my gear, ready to confront the demons lurking within its irradiated walls. Little did I know that this expedition would push me into a sinister web of conspiracy, blurring the lines between reality and nightmare, forever changing the course of my life.
We were a group of intrepid travelers, united by a shared curiosity and a thirst for the unknown. The journey ahead would take us deep into the heart of the Chernobyl exclusion zone, a place shrouded in mystery and haunted by the ghosts of the past.
Our guide, Igor, regaled us with tales of the ill-fated Chernobyl disaster. His voice, tinged with a mix of reverence and melancholy, painted vivid pictures of a once-vibrant city reduced to a post-apocalyptic wasteland. As we approached the border of the exclusion zone, the landscape began to transform. The lush, green countryside gave way to desolation and decay, a stark reminder of the cataclysmic event that had unfolded here decades ago.
As we drove deeper into the heart of the exclusion zone, a palpable sense of unease settled over the van. The silence that permeated the air seemed to amplify the weight of the past, the residual energy of lives disrupted and dreams shattered. Through the windows, we caught glimpses of abandoned buildings, their crumbling facades standing as a testament to the transience of human existence.
It was amidst the eerie silence of Pripyat that my fascination with the strange and unexplained lured me away from the safety of the group. A stray cat, with its radiant blue eyes and matted fur, darted playfully through the remnants of the city, drawing me deeper into the labyrinth of abandoned streets. The curious creature seemed almost otherworldly, an enigmatic guide leading me toward an unseen destiny.
As I ventured further into the forgotten alleys of Pripyat, the echoes of my companions faded into oblivion. The weight of solitude settled upon my shoulders, both thrilling and unnerving in its intensity. It was as if I had crossed an invisible threshold, stepping into a realm where time and reality intertwined, where the boundaries between the living and the departed became blurred.
In my solitary exploration, I stumbled upon a hidden path concealed beneath a tangle of ivy and overgrown shrubbery. It beckoned to me, an invitation to uncover secrets long buried in the annals of history. My curiosity overpowered any trepidation, propelling me forward, further into the heart of the enigma.
The hidden path led me to a dilapidated building, its weathered facade standing defiantly against the ravages of time. The faded sign, barely visible amidst the peeling paint, identified it as "Laboratory 23." The air crackled with an aura of mystery as I hesitated at the threshold, my heart pounding with a mix of trepidation and excitement.
Stepping into the forsaken laboratory, I found myself in a time capsule frozen in a perpetual state of abandonment. Broken glass and discarded equipment littered the floor, remnants of a hasty retreat. The air carried the scent of rust and decay, a haunting perfume that hung heavy in the atmosphere.
Amidst the wreckage, my eyes fell upon a collection of documents scattered across a table. Their faded pages held cryptic symbols, enigmatic diagrams that seemed to dance with arcane knowledge. As I traced the lines with my trembling fingers, a sense of foreboding washed over me. It was as if these documents were a portal into a realm of forbidden knowledge, a Pandora's box that held the darkest of secrets.
Driven by an insatiable thirst for truth, I delved deeper into the lab's forgotten chambers. Within the dimly lit recesses, I discovered a hidden room, concealed behind a heavy, rusted door. The moment it creaked open, I knew I had unearthed something unimaginable.
The room was lined with shelves, each holding a multitude of binders meticulously labeled with names. As I perused the contents of the binders, a wave of disbelief washed over me. Each name was accompanied by a photograph, a face frozen in time. But it was not the faces themselves that sent a chill down my spine. It was the realization that these were the faces of missing individuals, those who had vanished without a trace from society.
One binder in particular caught my attention. It bore the chilling label "clones." Opening it, I discovered an unsettling truth: the missing individuals had been cloned, their lives replicated in secrecy within the confines of this clandestine laboratory. The implications of such a revelation were staggering, a betrayal of humanity that defied comprehension.
The weight of the evidence I had collected threatened to crush my spirit. The room, suffused with an oppressive aura, seemed to tighten its grip around me. With the damning photographs and documents securely tucked away in my bag, I turned to leave, determined to escape the clutches of this nightmare. But as I moved toward the exit, a peculiar sensation prickled the back of my neck, sending shivers down my spine. It was as if the air itself carried an ominous whisper, a ghostly echo of footsteps echoing through the desolate laboratory.
Fear seized me, freezing me in place. The realization dawned upon me like a chilling gust of wind—I was not alone in this forsaken place. Someone or something else lurked within the shadows, drawing nearer with each passing moment. The excitement of discovery mingled with a growing sense of dread, creating a disorienting cocktail of emotions.
In that harrowing instant, instinct took hold, overriding rational thought. Without a moment's hesitation, I pivoted on my heels and bolted towards the exit, my heart pounding in my chest. Panic fueled my every step as I navigated through the dimly lit corridors, the clamor of my own breath and the echoing footfalls of my pursuer serving as a macabre soundtrack to my escape.
Every shadow seemed to shift, morphing into a sinister figure poised to snatch me back into the clutches of the unknown. Adrenaline coursed through my veins, propelling me forward, my only goal to break free from this labyrinth of horrors. The very air seemed to thicken, as if resisting my frantic escape, but sheer determination fueled my desperate flight.
Finally, I burst through the door, gasping for breath, my pulse thundering in my ears. The world outside the laboratory, though still cloaked in an eerie silence, felt like salvation. I sprinted through the desolate halls, never looking back, each step propelling me farther from the unseen terror that had pursued me.
It was only when I reached the relative safety of the open air, the sun casting long shadows across the abandoned landscape, that I allowed myself a moment to collect my thoughts. Beads of sweat trickled down my forehead as I leaned against a crumbling wall, trying to steady my racing heart. The weight of the encounter pressed upon me, a reminder that the horrors lurking in the unknown were far more menacing than I could have ever imagined.
I knew, deep down, that the discovery I had made in that foreboding laboratory had unleashed something far greater than I had anticipated. It was a truth that demanded to be revealed, but it also posed a danger that threatened to consume me. With trembling hands, I clutched the bag containing the evidence—the only tangible proof of the conspiracy I had encountered. With a renewed determination, I vowed to bring the truth to light, no matter the personal cost. The echoes of footsteps and the ghostly whispers would forever haunt my memory, driving me forward into the heart of darkness, prepared to confront the unimaginable horrors that lay ahead.
Against all rational judgment, I made the fateful decision to return to the forsaken laboratory, driven by an insatiable thirst for the truth that burned deep within my soul. The weight of the knowledge I had gained hung heavily upon my shoulders, propelling me forward into the heart of danger, where few dared to tread.
As I cautiously stepped into the decaying lab, the air seemed to grow heavier, pregnant with an otherworldly presence. The soft glow of my flashlight illuminated the desolate scene before me. Each creak of the floorboards echoed like a spectral cry, a warning from the spirits of those whose lives had been extinguished in this place.
With renewed determination, I retraced my steps, reexamining the cryptic documents and peculiar biological equipment that had initially captivated my attention. But now, armed with new insights, I saw beyond the surface. I deciphered the enigmatic symbols etched onto the aged papers, connecting them to forbidden knowledge hidden within ancient texts and whispered legends.
As I ventured deeper into the labyrinthine chambers, the air became charged with an electric energy, as if the very walls pulsed with the secrets they held. Each room held its own story, its own secrets waiting to be unraveled. I meticulously examined every piece of equipment, every forgotten notebook, uncovering a web of interconnected experiments that went far beyond human cloning.
The further I delved into the lab, the stronger the sensation of being watched became. Paranoia gnawed at the edges of my mind, as if unseen eyes tracked my every move. Shadows seemed to dance in the corners of my vision, fleeting glimpses of a presence that eluded my grasp. The air crackled with a malevolent energy, leaving me on edge, my senses heightened to every flicker of movement and every whisper of sound.
Strange occurrences plagued me, testing the limits of my sanity. Objects inexplicably shifted positions, as if moved by unseen hands. Whispers, barely audible, resonated through the empty corridors, their cryptic messages fueling my determination to uncover the truth. Each encounter with the unseen presence left me trembling, yet I pressed forward, compelled by an insatiable curiosity mixed with a gnawing dread.
With each passing moment, the veil between the tangible and the intangible seemed to thin, blurring the boundaries of reality. I began to question my own perceptions, wondering if the presence haunting the lab was merely a figment of my imagination or something far more sinister. It was as if the very walls held the memories of those who had suffered and perished in this forsaken place, their specters reaching out from the past to guide or deceive me.
Piece by piece, the puzzle began to reveal the true magnitude of the conspiracy that had been woven within the walls of the Chernobyl laboratory. The Chernobyl disaster had been orchestrated, a calculated smokescreen to mask the clandestine operations of human cloning and organ trafficking. The government, entwined with a powerful and sinister cabal, had exploited the chaos and devastation to carry out their heinous deeds.
Through a network of corrupted scientists and government officials, they had perfected the art of human cloning, creating identical duplicates to fulfill their nefarious agenda. These clones were mere commodities, their lives extinguished to harvest their organs, which were then sold on the black market to the highest bidders.
As I pieced together the fragments of the conspiracy, my mind reeled with the implications. The very fabric of society had been torn apart, with those in power manipulating the lives of countless individuals for their own gain. The Chernobyl disaster had been not just a tragedy, but a meticulously planned cover-up, shrouding the dark underbelly of a far-reaching conspiracy.
But as the shadows of truth began to coalesce, so too did the darkness that had been lurking within the lab. Confronted by unidentified individuals, their faces concealed behind masks of shadows, I found myself cornered, my heart pounding in my chest. Panic surged through my veins as I fought against overwhelming odds, desperately clinging to the sliver of hope that remained.
In the chaos and desperation, a blow to the head sent me spiraling into unconsciousness, my fate hanging in the balance. What awaited me on the other side of consciousness remained a terrifying mystery, as I teetered on the precipice of oblivion, caught between the harsh reality and the realm of nightmares.
When I finally regained consciousness, I found myself alone in the eerie lab, the ominous silence enveloping me like a suffocating shroud. As my vision cleared, I realised with a sinking feeling that all the physical evidence I had painstakingly collected had vanished, leaving behind only blank, empty pages and hollow photographs. It was as if the truth itself had been stripped away, erased by an unknown force that sought to bury the horrifying secrets I had uncovered.
Confusion and frustration gnawed at my soul. How could the evidence disappear so mysteriously, leaving no trace of the monstrous conspiracy that had threatened the very fabric of humanity? Doubt crept in, whispering insidious questions about my sanity and the validity of my discoveries. But deep down, I knew that I had seen the truth, felt its chilling touch, and I couldn't let it be silenced.
Drawing upon the last reserves of my strength, I rose from the cold, barren floor. Every muscle ached, every joint protested, but my resolve burned brighter than ever. The forces that sought to bury the truth would not deter me. With a renewed sense of purpose, I vowed to press forward, to continue the fight against the darkness that had infiltrated Chernobyl.
Steeling myself, I navigated the labyrinthine corridors, my senses on high alert for any signs of danger. The lab had become a graveyard of secrets, its walls bearing silent witness to the atrocities committed within its forsaken halls. As I ventured deeper into the heart of the darkness, I clung to the flickering flame of hope, knowing that the final chapter of this harrowing journey was yet to unfold.
The chilling realisation that the powers orchestrating the conspiracy were far-reaching and influential only fueled my determination. With every step I took, I knew that I was walking a treacherous path, one that could lead to my own demise. But the truth had become my unwavering guide, guiding me through the murky depths of the unknown, urging me to shine a light on the horrors that had been buried beneath Chernobyl's haunting facade.
As the final pieces of the puzzle fell into place, I prepared myself for the ultimate confrontation. The shadowy figures who had cornered me before would not have the final say. Armed with knowledge, resilience, and an unwavering desire for justice, I would emerge from the depths of the lab to confront the conspirators and expose their malevolent machinations to the world.
Little did I know that the journey ahead would be fraught with danger and despair, pushing me to the very limits of my sanity and physical endurance. But I was prepared to face whatever awaited me, for the truth must be unveiled, even if it meant walking through the darkest recesses of human depravity.
With a heavy heart and unwavering resolve, I ventured forth, ready to unravel the final layers of the conspiracy that had gripped Chernobyl, determined to bring light to the darkest corners and emerge from the shadows with the truth firmly in hand. The culmination of my journey was yet to come, a reckoning that would test not only my own strength but also the endurance of those who dared to confront the unspeakable horrors lurking in the depths of the human soul.
Injured and disoriented, I found myself trapped in the labyrinthine depths of the desolate laboratory. Every step felt like a battle against the darkness that surrounded me, as if the very walls conspired to keep me captive within their clutches. But the flickering flame of determination burned bright within me, pushing me to navigate my way out of this nightmarish realm.
Wounds throbbed with each movement, a reminder of the confrontation I had faced with the unidentified individuals who sought to silence me. Despite the pain, I refused to succumb to despair. Through sheer grit and unwavering resolve, I charted a treacherous path back towards the world beyond those foreboding walls.
Every shadow seemed to breathe, every creak of the decaying structure echoed like a sinister whisper. The air hung heavy with an oppressive silence, broken only by the sound of my own ragged breath. Fear gripped my heart, but the urgency to expose the truth propelled me forward, my footsteps guided by a desperate hope for escape.
As I neared the exit, a surge of relief mingled with a haunting sense of loss. Leaving behind the horrors of the laboratory meant stepping into a world forever altered by the knowledge I carried. The once-familiar reality now appeared distorted, as if a veil had been lifted to reveal the sinister undercurrents that flowed beneath the surface.
Back to safety, I struggled to find a voice amidst the cacophony of disbelief and dismissals. The physical evidence I had collected, once concrete proof of the conspiracy, now lay blank and empty, a haunting reminder of the insidious forces at work. Desperation clawed at my chest as I sought to share my story, to expose the darkness that threatened to consume us all.
But the world, ensnared in its own illusions and complacency, rejected my claims. Labelled a conspiracy theorist, my words fell on deaf ears, dismissed as the delusions of a tormented mind. The weight of frustration and isolation threatened to extinguish the flame of truth within me, but I refused to be silenced.
Filled with an unwavering sense of purpose, I returned to the desolate location of the lab one last time, hoping against hope to find remnants of the evidence that had vanished into thin air. But as I stood before the site, my heart sank. The entrance stood sealed, the lab forever concealed behind layers of impenetrable cement. It looked like it was sealed for years. It was a stark reminder that the forces orchestrating the conspiracy were determined to erase all traces of their nefarious activities.
I lingered for a moment, absorbing the weight of the loss, before making peace with the fact that physical proof was forever beyond my reach. But the fire within me continued to burn, fueled by the belief that even without tangible evidence, the truth had a way of seeping into the collective consciousness.

2023.06.02 09:52 Spidey_Jay_ Blackbeard IS the Final/Main Villain
In light of recent of events I've been seeing a lot of people reacting to the most recent chapter and expressing a lot of hype and anticipation for the Imu as the series' big bad and final villain. And It was definitely a crazy chapter but I actually think Oda has made it abundantly clear that Imu will not be
the final villain and that it will in fact be Marshall D. Teach himself.
It's always seemed pretty obvious to me and many others that Blackbeard was being set up as the end of series threat as him and Luffy are polar opposites and the same can be said for their respective crews. And beyond that Blackbeard stood out for being the only man to eat 2 fruits leading many theorize that he might even get a 3rd one.
He can eat 2 fruits and never sleeps, what is he?
But with the introduction of Imu things got a little muddled. And I get it, Imu is the King of the World and the reason the One Piece verse is in the state it's in and defeating him would mean freeing the world and ending the 800 years of oppression. And this is all true, but Imu's character while being the world villain is not the MAIN villain of One Piece as it is the story of Monkey D. Luffy and his journey to becoming the greatest pirate in history and stepping into his role as the man to usher in the dawn of the new world. And the key antagonist in that Narrative is Blackbeard. Oda's Original Plan
Let's start from the beginning, Oda originally intended for One Piece to be a story about Luffy fighting the Yonko and being wrapped up in about 5 years, but he created the Warlords and that greatly lengthened the serialization of the story. But if you notice, in this comment Oda NEVER says that his original plan for the story changed, just that the the story got longer. Blackbeard is undoubtedly Luffy's ultimate Pirate threat and as a Yonko who is set up to be the man to take down Shanks it makes sense to say that if Oda views the story of One Piece as a story about fighting the Yonko surely the best of them would be the main villain, no?
Some people won't really be convinced by this as a lot of you find Oda's statements to be highly dubious so I'm gonna piggyback of something I mentioned in the last paragraph, Shanks. Shanks is a pivotal character in One Piece as he is the one who inspired Luffy to become a pirate in the first place and has several connections to many big name pirates in the past and present. But unfortunately, Oda is setting him up to fall at the hand of Blackbeard.
This is one example, but without exception, every single volume cover Shanks has appeared on has also featured Blackbeard
Oda has been deliberate in setting up the connection between these two with Shanks getting his scar not from Mihawk or Kaido but Blackbeard. And we know in the world of One Piece are important and create a complex intrinsic bond between 2. Blackbeard's true power
But Shanks doesn't simply have a grudge with Blackbeard over his wound, he views Blackbeard as a serious issue, going as to far as to warn Whitebeard as the true threat Blackbeard posed to not just him, but the whole world. Shanks knew what was coming but no one listened.
Shanks even commented on Blackbeard not being in Wano as he had wrongly assumed Blackbeard would be drawn there. Meaning Shanks is on the move trying to intercept him. And i'd even go a bit further and theorize that the Pirate Shanks wanted to discuss with the Gorosei wasn't Luffy, but Blackbeard himself. The subject matter of the conversation is anyone's guess bit if i had to I'd say that he is trying to warn them in the same way he tried to warn Whitebeard. Who is he talking about?
With all this in mind we take into account that Blackbeard and Shanks are in the running for the One Piece too, and interestingly both them just got a big leap from Kidd and Law, so even outside of what was posted they are on a collision course I just posted, and love him or hate him Blackbeard will prevail over Shanks and might even kill him. This would be a big blow to the verse, but most importantly it'd be a big blow to Luffy. Seeing his hero and friend be defeated by the same man who played a role in his brother's death and killed Whitebeard would make Luffy hate Blackbeard more than anyone.
Not yet, Not Yet
And on the subject of Marineford I always viewed Blackbeard as the main villain of that Saga. Not Akainu, not Magellan either but Blackbeard. Think about it, he started the Summit War, he freed the prisoners at Impel Down and ended up getting the biggest come up after the events of the war. Shocking the world and ending the era of Whitebeard. And I believe the post skip parallels the pre-skip, so if Blackbeard is the main villain at the midpoint, the end of the series he will be the villain again and finally get his comeuppance.
The Key was Blackbeard
Now let's get into that, the idea of Luffy and Blackbeard as enemies. Now on the surface there's alot that puts these 2 against each other. The first chapter where Blackbeard is introduced perfectly sets up how Luffy and Blackbeard are very different but also similar, both are D's and it's clear that Blackbeard's crew is a preverse reflection of Luffy's. But let's go beneath the surface and we'll find that the 2 contrast each other more, especially now that we know the true nature of Luffy's fruit.
Dayman, Fighter of the Nightman.
Luffy in his true form is the sun god Nika bathed in white. Teach however is a man who wields the power of darkness itself and is known and feared as BLACKbeard, Nika's power allows him to free himself completely and this concept is represented as the sun. Blackbeard's ability restricts and even robs other's of their abilities with the supreme gravity of his black holes. Blackholes are collpaed stars I might add, and What is the sun I ask you? A star.
Think back to Ace and Blackbeard's fight way back when and look at this interesting piece of text The Stuff of Legends
Don't you guys think it's interesting that Blackbeard directly refers to Ace's ability as the sun? Not fire, flame, or even light but the SUN.
I think this was Oda being cheeky and foreshadow the ultimate conflict. Another interesting piece of Info is Blackbeard's association with the moon, this factoid further proves that Blackbeard is the literal antithesis of Luffy on a molecular level.
Note that in Blackbeard's portrait as a kid the moon hangs over him.
Oda has put a lot of stock into making Blackbeard the perfect counter for Luffy, having him built in the story since Drum Island but the subject of Imu might throw a wrench into all this to the uninitiated. But the opposite is true. Imu is the King fo the world, the shadow ruler who reigns above all, and that makes him Blackbeard's number one enemy, even beyond Luffy. In terms of goals anyway.
The idea that Luffy fights Blackbeard at Raftel and finds the One Piece starting the final war never made sense to me because there is now ay Oda is going to eliminate Blackbeard from the story have him miss the throne war.
People might not realize this, But Blackbeard is a D as well, and he will have a role to play in the events surrounding the end of the story. And on the subject of the D, Let's talk about Xebec and Blackbeard's true ambition.
The Strongest Blackbeard's predecessor
Rocks D Xebec had the ambition to be the King of the world and was a force so powerful that the marines, pirates and the celestial dragons had to work together to best him. This is relevant to Blackbeard be he is most likely inheriting Xebecs will as there are several connections between the 2 pirates. One Blackbeard has made his new base of operations Hachinosu, the former stronghold of Xebec and his ship is even known as the "Saber of Xebec." This makes me think that he is carrying the will of Xebec and is essentially his 2nd coming and will be much worse.
We recently learned that Blackbeard wants to be King, so imagine when knowledge that of Imu's existence is made public, he will WANT what Xebec wanted and sit upon the empty throne. Only thing is he'll come a lot closer than Rocks ever did.
Note that Blackbeard's hobby is Archaeology. Meaning he has a desire to learn the secrets of the world.
Blackbeard is ignorant to alot right now, but when he learns the truth he will be inflamed as we see multiple times through the story new information has caused Blackbeard to change his trajectory and let his ambition run wild. The 3 who have Imu's attention
Factoring in Blackbeard's desire to sit at the top, Imu himself has shown an express interest in Blackbeard as we see that off the mutilated wanted posters he had in his garden, Blackbeard was among them. Not Dragon, Not Law, Not Kaido, Not Big Mom, BUT BLACKBEARD. Imu sees him and Luffy as his principal threats alongside a literal ancient weapon. So the people thinking Blackbeard a guy who has ambition to take Imu's spot and is actually living rent free in his head will be defeated BEFORE the final war you're kidding yourself.
No, Blackbeard and Luffy will both participate and BOTH will play a hand in Imu's defeat. Not team up, but their actions will effect and help each other inadvertently as they always have. Imu is scared of the D and is grateful that they don't know the true meaning of their birthright, but like Law said the D shall cause a storm. Luffy will play the biggest part but the other D's are also guaranteed to have their own roles in the displacement of the old world order.
Imu will fall and the dawn will be ushered in, but like the saying goes the night is always darkest before the dawn. Luffy will have to settle things with Blackbeard once and for all to stop him from ushering in a new age of darkness and finally prove that Teach was in fact not the man Roger was waiting for.
There's many more things I could add or touch upon from the story and outside of it that shows Oda's intentions for Blackbeard's character but I think i've made my point.

2023.06.02 09:47 Silias_ Are GW tournaments really a big thing?
I've noticed the answer of "It's ok for casual play or FLGS tournaments but not for GW tournaments" pop up regularly in various topics like painting subfactions, WYSIWYG, proxies, recent transfer of minis to legends etc. My genuine question is: how many people actually play official GW tournaments? I've never even heard of someone I know attending one, though I know some very competitive players doing a lot of unofficial tournaments. And, to the best of my knowledge, there is only one official GW store in my whole country (Poland). Is this the usual situation, or am I just living in a Warhammer backwater?

2023.06.02 09:46 Delicious-Piccolo-70 [ipad] [2013/2016] 3D survial horror game with a simillar asthetic to Darkwood
When i was young my dad would play horror games on his ipad, the most notable one was a horror game on his ipad. It was a first player game as we were never able to see the player chracter and a survial with no weapons, the main objective was to survive till dawn, im not sure if the game had levels or no, and the entire map was always covered with fog and made use of mute colours. If you were out after a certian time the ghost/entity would catch you resulting in a game over so the player had to go from house to house in a deserted area.
I am unable to check for my history on the apple store on that device because it had been reset due to my dad forgetting the pasword, so if i checked my dads apple accound on the apstore is it posible to find this game in history of previous games downloaded? This was a free game and im not really sure how the appstore works since im an android user.
