2020.08.24 20:23 OcularVernacular Take care with Windows Store version.

I picked up this game while my GamePass trial was active (flight sim) and have suffered the lost save file issue that a few others have mentioned. I believe I know what might be causing it.
On the windows store version, there's an Xbox integration, it shows your Xbox avatar on the corner of the main menu for example when you start up the game. I believe this appears before the game has checked whether you have a game in progress (likely due to cloud saves). This means that until the Xbox integration has finished pulling data, "new game" is highlighted instead of "continue". Once the account sync has caught up if you've pressed confirm you're watching the intro movie and your save is gone.
My suggestion: Don't spam confirm on the menu screen. Give it plenty of time for your account to load. (It freezes the menu on my machine and I'm on Ryzen9 with 2080ti.) Just be careful and it should be ok.
Have messaged the devs with this also and the suggestion to disable the menu input until the Xbox account data is loaded. Fingers crossed this is possible.
Might pick up the steam version in the future as was really enjoying the game but can't convince myself to do the first 5 spirits again. Have fun!

2020.08.18 16:14 PowerPad Trophy gallery, part 2 (With help from u/Gwultz)

(Thank you to u/Gwultz for helping me with these trophy descriptions. Huge shout out to 'em.) With that being said, here's "Best of the Smash AU trophy gallery, part 2."

Dennis (alt 2)
You'd think that Dennis would take to the merging of all dimensions into the world of trophies like a fish out of water, but not long after the Neo Subspace Army rose, he took a job from SMG3 to serve as a primary enforcer. From duking it out with Noctis in a high-speed vehicular duel to defending the Toppat transport train, this furious fish has a bad habit of rigging fights in his favor by keeping several stolen Endoskeletons on standby to attack. What a crook!
Flamethrower Bare Endo
I'm certain you're wondering how we at Fazbear Incorporated build all your Fazbear friends+ to life, then look no further than Flamethrower Bare Endo! His high pressure flamethrower allows him to fuse all the bits and pieces together with jaw-dropping ease, and he doesn't require eat or sleep!++ From Friendo Endo+++ to even ol' Freddy himself, you can take heart in knowing that every single one of our classic characters was built to last.
+This phrase is copyrighted by Fazbear Incorporated, and use of it for business or pleasure without proper consultation from the Fazbear legal team is grounds for us to sue.
++Fazbear Corporate cannot and will not confirm or deny any accusations of us forcing our workers to neglect eat and sleep regardless. Remember: You can't prove anything!
+++Due to a minor shipping snafu, Flamethrower Bare Endo and Friendo Endo share remarkably similar serial numbers and other such internal data, so Fazbear Incorporated is not responsible for any damage incurred if, by some miraculous mix-up, Flamethrower Bare Endo is delivered to your house instead of Friendo Endo, even and especially if Flamethrower Bare Endo goes haywire. Again, you can't prove anything!
First appearance: FNAF AR: Special Delivery
Doctor Zomboss
Full name Edgar George Zomboss. This postmortem brainiac maniac graduated from college at the top of his thanatology class, and immediately set about the construction of a powerful Zombot mech and a massive zombie army, seeking to dominate his local suburban subdivision. Short in stature and in temper, Zomboss is quick to berate his zombie troopers whenever a plan to beat the plants goes pear-shaped. First appearance: Plants vs. Zombies
King Knight
Once thought to be the champion who would save the valley from the Enchantress, King Knight let his pride and ambition go to his head, and soon turned against the people to join her evil Order of no Quarter. Cocky, blustering, and eager to set straight any who dare to knock him from his usurped throne, this gilded goon is a force to be reckoned with, even in spite of his soft spot for his beloved mother. First appearance: Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope
Kaos
Coming from a long line of evil tyrants , Kaos strives to defeat the Skylanders and conquer the Skylands once and for all, both to satiate his own pride and to one-up his much more successful family. Though his arrogance and lack of evil street-smarts often comes back to bite him, he is still not to be underestimated. His DOOMSHARKS are a sight to behold! First appearance: Skylanders: Spyro's adventure (console edition)
Ahlgon
The two warring deities of light and dark, Galeem and Dharkon, were so preoccupied with their battle against the Smash Brothers and each other that they were thoroughly unprepared for Ultron (now possessing the body of YHVH) infecting them both with his highly advanced new Ultron virus. Seeking to satisfy his own morbid curiosity as well as defeat the Smashers, the AI fused the two gods into Ahlgon, God of dusk. With both gods still locked in bitter combat inside this unstable fusion, Ahlgon is constantly at war within itself, and now craves the bitter yet merciful embrace of death even as it lashes out at the Smashers with everything it has. First appearance: Super Smash Brothers AU
Makoto Yuuki (Persona series)
This second year student is different than most: Having a bit of Death trapped within him, he found the Ability to form bonds with others. First appearance: Persona 3
Kakyoin
This cherry loving Stand user had 50 days of friendship, before he sacrificed himself to reveal the stand ability of DIO. First appearance: Jojo's bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders.
Duon
One of the primary commanders of the Subspace army, Duon packs two varieties of punch. His blue half can cleave foes in two with a flurry of sword strikes and charge attacks, while his pink half can lay down hurt from afar using two arm cannons and a mortar integrated into his head. Neo Tabuu expended plenty of Shadow Bugs in order to bring Duon back, but as a result of the damage sustained in his first bout against the Smashers on the battleship Halberd, Duon has gone from strong-but-silent war machine to chipper, occasionally snarky assistant bot, though he retains his deadly combat ability and loyalty to Tabuu. First appearance: Super Smash Brothers Brawl
DIO
You thought that it was a different trophy, but it was him! DIO (all caps necessary) has been the vampiric mortal foe of the Jojo family line for generations. Though he doesn't have Death himself on his side like a certain other vampire, he does have a flair for the dramatic, significant physical prowess, and a powerful stand that allows him to freeze time for ten seconds. However, he's quite cocky, which tends to be his downfall more often than not. So, kind of like Dracula, but with a bit of Bowser thrown in, which would explain his passing resemblance to one of the Koopa King's alternate skins.... First appearance: Jojo part 1
Henry Stickmin
A kleptomaniacal stick figure with plenty of adventures under his belt, Henry's gotten himself in and out of too many jams to count. Stealing gems, busting out of prisons, bringing down criminal organizations, you name it, he's done it, in spite of (or perhaps because of) his wildly unpredictable luck. Though Henry started out as a simple petty thief, later games in his series would allow players to set him on more altruistic paths. One has to wonder, what's next for him? First appearance: Breaking the Bank (or crossing the pit if you want to get technical)

Yang Xiao Long
Ruby's older sister, and quite the brawler! With her dual shotgun gauntlets, Ember Celica, she can hit quite hard. And with her semblance, Burn, you can bet she's a bartender's worst nightmare! First appearance: Yellow trailer, or RWBY Volume 1
Fawful
He has chortles! This green Beanbean Kingdom Resident fights using his vaccum helmet, and an arrangement of technology! First appearance: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (2003)
Aperture Science Turret
Standing guard over the long abandoned testing facilities of Aperture Science, these Turrets operate on a simple, yet effective, subroutine: if something catches their eye, they'll shoot. Simple as that. Each turret eschews the traditional gunpowder-using chamber mechanism in favor of launching bullets with springs. Though each projectile packs way less of a punch because of this, it allows them to store 100% more bullet per bullet. First appearance: Portal
Drill-X
Kaos tasked this big bot with drilling for the lost city of Arkus at his big rig. Drill-X often got bored with the monotonous process, and attempted to alleviate his boredom by picking up a side career in rapping, so don't be surprised if he spits fire as hot as the fireballs launched from his drill during battles against him. After being defeated by the Giants and taking on the brief career as a chef, Drill-X returned as part of the Neo Subspace army, integrating himself into Metal Gear REX to dish out twice the painful payback. First appearance: Skylanders Giants (console edition)
Star allies sparkler
You thought the Dragoon and the friend star packed a pink punch? Take a look at this baby! By harnessing the power of their best friendships, Kirby and his Star allies transformed the friend star into this new vehicle to chase after Void Terminia. With the ability to fire powerful charged unison blasts and fly at the speed of light, the Neo Subspace Army got a firsthand taste of friendship power at the wings of this baby in chapter 999: The great invasion 2: electric boogaloo. Even I have to say it, that scene was awesome! First appearance: Kirby Star Allies
Hole punch (Paper Mario)
Hole punch loves to jam out to some sick beats! In the Neo Subspace army, he serves under King Olly AND Neo Tabuu! First appearance: Paper Mario the Origami King (2020)
Belle Fontire
Tascorp's very own Meta Runner was actually on the heroes side during Subspace 2. The only thing that matches her gaming skill is her attitude! First appeareace: Meta Runner (2019)
Fall Guy (alt one)
The Fall Guys game show was rife with a variety of comical yet painful booby traps, ranging from bouncy bumpers to swinging wrecking balls, and Fall Guy can wield and deploy all of them as part of his move set. This is a bit of a triple-edged sword: these traps can launch him around just as much, but Fall Guy has the unique ability to deal damage to enemies he gets launched into. Sometimes it's worth taking a knock on the noggin to close out that final win! First appearance: Fall Guys
Doctor Zomboss (alt 2)
When Zomboss was called into another dimension by Neo Tabuu, he had fully expected to leave the Subspace demigod speechless with his intellect and zombie army. However, it was the Doctor who was left speechless, as the neon butterfly of death threw him out on his ear. Fuming from this humiliation, the brainiac maniac found a kindred spirit in Kaos, who was similarly rejected. Though the two at first bickered over who would conquer where and who was the bigger evil genius, both undead and dark portal master soon found that they had plenty in common, such as hatred of a bearded arch-enemy's army and the incompetence of their minions, and hit it off swimmingly from there. Now the dastardly duo seek to put pay to both the Smash Brothers and the Neo Subspace Army, and rule over all worlds for all time. First appearance: Plants vs. Zombies
Ruby Rose (Alt 2)
Ruby has seen death itself now. ANd now, in her Mistral outfit, she's ready to take on anything! (Yet the dead are still alive) and she's ready to help the heroes! First appearance: RWBY volume 1
Wheatley (Portal)
Wheatley is now in control of the facility, and Neo Tabuu makes sure to check on him and his little death traps. Wheatley was secretly planning on getting his vengeance on GlaDoS, and the person who threw him into space.
Bare Endo
Though we at Fazbear incorporated make our top priority to bring food, fantasy, and fun to families of all shapes and sizes, we still have a business to run, so you'll have to understand if renting out our beloved characters through our patented Special Delivery app is a touch above your budget. But that doesn't mean we can't offer a more affordable option to bring yourself some joy! Introducing Friendo Endo! Available for rent at a discounted price from the rest of your Fazbear Friends, Endo won't let his lack of a costume stop him from giving you a fun time, and you can dress him however you want! And for a small additional fee, we'll send him to your home decked out with the latest in AnimStealth technology. Friendo Endo, the latest addition to the Fazbear Family, dedicated to bringing you Food, Fantasy, and Fun! (Brought to you in partnership with the Neo Subspace Army. Warning: Fazbear incorporated is not responsible for any damage incurred if Endo goes haywire, including damage to hearing sustained from his stunning sonic screech. Remember: you can't prove anything!) First appearance: FNAF 2
Primid
Neo Tabuu puts these walking bundles of shadow bugs back into the fray as cannon fodder, but due to his more limited supply of power, these guys are a little less concentrated, from a literal and figurative sense. They'll just as often engage in dress-up as they will attack you, and one even joins Captain Goomba against the Subspace Army. They just don't make em like they used to, I suppose... First appearance: Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Hyness
Hyness and his three Mage generals were banished by the ancients for resorting to drastic measures to stop a great galactic crisis, and the leader of the Jamba cult was driven mad by this injustice. Seeking to get revenge on them, Hyness attempted to summon the dark God of destruction Void Termina, the strongest warrior in the galaxy Galacta Knight, and even sought to draw upon power from Another Dimension, corrupting him and his Mages in the process. Thankfully, Kirby and his friends defeated the officiant of doom and his generals at every turn, eventually purifying them with his friend hearts. Hyness is now back to being the kind soul he used to be, but he can still be a bit senile.... First appearance: Kirby Star Allies
The Necrodancer
Once a humble bard named Octavian, the mad whispers of the golden lute warped his mind, body, and soul. Now standing guard over his crypt, the Necrodancer raises an army of undead and monsters with his malicious melodies, and any who try to take his lute will be on the receiving end of of a deadly power chord! First appearance: Crypt of the Necrodancer
Dennis (alt 2)
You'd think that Dennis would take to the merging of all dimensions into the world of trophies like a fish out of water, but not long after the Neo Subspace Army rose, he took a job from SMG3 to serve as a primary enforcer. From duking it out with Noctis in a high-speed vehicular duel to defending the Toppat transport train, this furious fish has a bad habit of rigging fights in his favor by keeping several stolen Endoskeletons on standby to attack. What a crook!

Again, you can't prove anything!
First appearance: FNAF AR: Special Delivery
Young Anakin
Before he was the towering dark lord of the Sith, or even before he was the trusted Jedi partner of Obi-Wan, Anakin Skywalker was a child, just like you or me. Born into a life of slavery, young Ani spends his time scavenging for parts to tinker with, and he's surprisingly resourceful for a boy his age, having built a protocol droid and repaired a defunct pod racer all on his own. However, his unnaturally high midichlorian count, as well as his desire to deliver him and his mother to better lives at any cost, serve as sobering reminders to his final destiny. First appearance: Star Wars episode I: The Phantom Menace
Dennis
A vicious, cold-blooded predator, Dennis makes his living as an assassin and hired thug, and he really enjoys his work. In addition to his combat knife, he also makes use of his spiky boots to literally stomp out his targets. Holding a major chip on his shoulder ever since SpongeBob and Patrick managed to slip away from him, Dennis is determined to always get his man. First appearance: The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
Bowser's castle hangout
It's true what they say, "A koopas home is his castle." The infamous king Bowser Koopa spends most of his time here waiting for Mario to show up and rescue Peach. Pick your poison wisely when fighting on this perilous stage. The left side is populated with firebars and Thwomps looking to catch unsuspecting guests. The right side seems much more innocuous, but keep an eye on that axe- one good hit will send it tipping over, knocking the bridge out. It'll come back eventually of course, but anyone standing there when it collapses will take an extra steamy lava bath! First appearance: Super Mario Bros.
Endercon
An annual contest where builders from all around the world show off their skills, the big winners of Endercon get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the famous warrior of the Order of the Stone, Gabriel. A large central platform will instantly be constructed in the middle for fighters to duke it out, but plenty of builds will show up for you to stand on, be them on or off the stage. Just don't get too comfy on them, cause they'll soon be taken down for the next build to take their time in the sun. First appearance: Minecraft story mode
Rubber band
One of the members of King Olly's legion of stationary, Rubber Band fancies themself an entertainer, even though their stage plays are all designed to bring an end to their King's most persistent foe, Mario. Pull back the proverbial gossamer curtain with the 1000-fold arms will reveal the elastic entertainers significantly less impressive true form, but they won't simply give up there, and will launch themselves into the portly plumber at the speed of sound for big damage. First appearance: Paper Mario: the origami king
Robo Right Hand Man
Even Henry defeating him on the Toppat airship isn't enough to put this persistent thug down for keeps. Brought back to life as a cyborg, RHM now has several powerful weapons integrated directly into his body, notably rocket thrusters and a laser eye. Depending on what choices the player made after defeating him, ol' Righty could end up as the new boss of the Toppats, or even working alongside Henry. First appearance: Completing the Mission
Night guard office
A simple desk equipped with buttons to close the heavy duty doors and a security monitor, this office has served many a Fazbear night watchman well, or so the company claims. As a stage, fighters will be shrunken down to fit on the desk. Just be sure to hit the door buttons when you spot an animatronic in the doorway! While they'll pay no mind to you, the nasty sight will leave fighters paralyzed for a time.
Doo_liss
hey, izanos! It's everyone's favorite Pa_er Mario boss, Doo_liss! This ghouls _owers go behind even sha_eshifting, as he can steals someone's name and body easy as _ie! Though Doo_liss had a bit of an aloof, _unkish streak, he did turn over a new leaf by the end of his home game and and started a career acting in _lays. Maybe that's why _eo_le were so _leased to see him make a _layable debut here! First a_earance: Pa_er Mario: the thousand year door
Creeper
sssss.... KAPOW! That's the sound a creeper will make when it sneaks up behind you and combusts without warning, depriving you of all your things and sending you right back to your bed. Fans of Minecraft love to hate the creeper so much, it's seen as an unofficial mascot for the game. Just don't be so mad at them you lose your cool and try to strike them with lightning, or you'll charge them right up. The only thing rarer than a charged Creeper is a player who survives an encounter with one! First appearance: Minecraft
Tourist trap island
This Neighborville tourist hotspot just sort of showed up one day, but who can resist a lovely tropical island? However, it's not all fun and games in paradise, as the evil Doctor Zomboss has staffed the island with his loyal undead minions, and seeks to use his diabolical weather machine to leave any passing cruise ships stranded as brain meals! As a stage, fighters will be caught in unpredictable gale force winds at the base of the primary storm machine. Keep that switch pushed into the off setting, or you'll spend more time getting pushed around then you will fighting. First appearance: Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
Plushtrap
Aw, isn't this just the most adorable little thing?.... Actually, not really. With its creepy vacant stare and needle-sharp teeth, Plushtrap was presumably an ill-fated attempt by Fazbear Incorporated to break into the world of marketable plushes. Still, at least it's not out to murder you like the animatronic it's based off of. Hold on, did it just move? First appearance: FNAF 4
Trash and the gang
Budget options for the budding pizzeria owner, Trash and the gang are.... I mean.... They're better than nothing, I suppose. They don't sing, they don't dance, they don't even stay together half the time, but they'll do until you can get some proper moolah under your belt. Even when they returned in the Ultimate Custon Night, the only way they could hinder players was by making distracting noise. I'm not sure these guys will live on in the hearts of children. First appearance: FNAF pizzeria simulator
King Boo
The spectral monarch of all ghosts, King Boo once tried to trick Mario into being trapped in a haunted mansion, only to be foiled by his brother Luigi. This left the ghost King with a major bone to pick against the number 2 plumber, and he's hounded poor Luigi to the ends of the earth ever since, hoping to extract revenge. Armed with his power-enhancing crown and mighty illusionary powers, this is one Boo you definitely wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley, and even staring him right in the eyes won't keep you safe from him for long. First appearance: Luigi's Mansion
Doctor Zomboss (alt 1)
Zomboss is more of a hands-off type of commander, preferring to hang back and pummel plants from afar with a barrage of projectiles. Thrown wrenches and zombie heads do the job nicely, but for something a little meatier, he can whip out on of many miniature Zombot heads to launch more powerful projectiles depending on what Zombot it is, such as fire breath, missiles, or an incursion of imps. To keep enemies from reaching him before he can start firing away, Zomboss relies on the other half of his arsenal: Zombie summoning. Bucket headed Meatshields, lightning fast Pole vaulters, or more unorthodox picks like Jesters and Jack-in-the-boxers, one thing is for sure, they'll lay down massive hurt while Zomboss plugs away!
Zombot's wrath
Breaking open the Smash Ball as Doctor Zomboss will summon his most powerful creation to the battlefield: The Zombot 9000. Bombarding the stage with elemental breath attacks while summoning huge waves of zombies, foes are sure to get stomped one way or another. For the figurative cherry on top, the Zombot throws a Winnebago before flying away, launching whoever gets hit and ensuring some poor soul has to live with insurance premiums that go through the roof.
Takaya
A cold and callous shell of a man, Takaya is the leader of Strega, a group who stands in opposition to S.E.E.S and seeks to bring about the fall of man. Takaya lacks empathy, seeing anything not done for one's own gain or indulgence as useless, and holds the bitter and nihilistic view that all of humankind craves death. Unlike S.E.E.S, Takaya doesn't need an evoker to summon his Persona, which may be for the best. Imagine if he confused it with his revolver, or vice versa! Actually, that'd probably make him much easier to deal with. First appearance: Persona 3
The Lich (EtG)
Awaiting all worthy challengers in the depths of Bullet Hell is the Lich, the timeless and immortal master of the Gungeon. Some think that this Revenant with a revolver used to be the first who conquered the Gungeon, but it's doubtful that any can confirm these claims, and the Lich himself isn't telling. With a supremely steady eye and the itchiest trigger finger you've ever seen, defeating the Lich is an impossibility for all but a master marksman. First appearance: Enter the Gungeon
Evoker
This tool is one of few things that allow a Persona user to call upon their Persona in the real world. Despite its resemblance to a pistol, this is purely for show, and the user is in no danger when they point it at themselves and pull the trigger. However, it does force the user to subconsciously confront the possibility that they may die there, and these feelings of stress are what allow their Persona to surface. First appearance: Persona 3
SMG3
Rival to SMG4, this mad machinimist wants payback against him ever since he got caught stealing content. He's made a few attempts to go straight, but circumstances have turned against him as of recent, tragically setting him firmly on the path of do-baddery. Though his scheme have had limited success in the past, he might just be able to harness the power of the YouTube Remote to turn the tables on his more popular counterpart and establish an iron grip over YouTube once and for all. Fun fact: he has a doctorate in psychology! First appearance: SMG4 vs SMG3 (SMG4 series)
Captain Smasher
The nastiest undead menace to ever set sail, Captain Smasher was sealed away for many years, only to be freed by the Dave-bot 9000 as part of a misheard request for Crazy Dave's birthday gift. Armed with a cannon and a craving for vitamin C, this cruel captain is immune to damage unless you vanquish his cursebearers first. First appearance: Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2
Bullet Kin
These adorable little guys make up the first line of defense for the Gungeon, but don't let this looks fool you. Bullet kin, like all Gundead, are belligerent by nature, so don't be afraid to show them who's boss. Though Bullet Kin are simple enough opponents on their own, huge numbers can easily overwhelm an unprepared Gungeoneer, and some can come with rapid fire capabilities or the foresight to lead their shots to boot. To make a long story short, cuddling is a bad idea. First appearance: Enter the Gungeon
The gun that can kill the past
Contained in a musty chest hidden in the depths of the fifth chamber of the Gungeon, TGTCKTP, rather than shooting the enemy, shoots its wielder back in time to the moment of their greatest regret. Even though such an artifact has driven many to madness trying and failing to find and use it, you'd be surprised at what people would be willing to go through for that second shot. Matter of fact, maybe if I..... What am I saying?! Never mind. Just know that to find and use this gun to its full potential is a great feat indeed. First appearance: Enter the Gungeon
Puppit
An unnerving create of Subspace that hangs from seemingly endless marionette strings, lashing out with claws and lasers. Rumor has it that Fazbear Incorporated established a partnership with the Neo Subspace army in exchange for the army not suing them for reasons relating to this freakish foe. Puppits are a touch more unpredictable than their last appearance, and will sometimes latch on to fighters without warning. Yikes! First appearance: Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Spell Punks
Mysterious mages that hail from the Skylands, Spell Punks each have mastery over one element. You can tell them apart by their distinctive colors and different abilities. Air Punks speed up their allies, Life Punks heal them, Magic conceals, Earth shields, Undead summon undead minions, tech locks on to their enemies with mighty sky lasers, water freezes foes, and Fire rapidly shoots flame bursts. Got it? Good! Now just try to remember all that when you have an army Bearing down on you as those Punks hide in the back, providing support and covering fire! First appearance: Skylanders: Spyro's adventure
Armight
Another returning Subspace goon, Armight neglected to bring all too many new tricks for this game. His mustache is slightly fancier and he'll sometimes attack all around him with a spinning headbutt,mbut he mostly just sticks to his old attacks of slashing and throwing swords. Some may call him archaic, but he calls it honorable, and there's something to be said about how he can hold his own amidst all his peers and their innovations. Good on you, Armight! First appearance: Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Nyx avatar
The incomplete bringer of Erebus, made manifest by humanity's desire for death, Nyx is progenitor of the dark hour and the resultant shadows. If S.E.E.S wish to save all of humankind, they must scale Tarterus once more and cast Nyx back to whence it came. Though Nyx's influence and power has waned ever since it was brought into the world of trophies, it still holds immense almighty power, especially when Scissors channels their deathly energies through his dual blades. First appearance: Persona 3
Trollverine
Fa-shwing! Let's go, bub! This copyright-friendly troll enemy is one of the heavy hitters of Kaos' army. The claw on his right arm allows it to let loose with many a powerful combo, and the shield on his left can deflect attacks. He lowers it when he's about to strike though, and that's your chance to shred him right back. Even though Trollverine is annoying to deal with, at least that helmet of his looks cool. First appearance: Skylanders: Spyro's adventure
Goliath Drow
Living up to his name, this deluxe-sized Drow trades the finesse of his smaller brethren for raw power. A shame he puts that strength to use working for the forces of darkness, because he'd be quite a boon as a handyman. As it stands though, those guards on his forearms give his charge attack some extra "oomph," and there's no way to knock him out of it- When taking a stand against this Titan, you either move or get moved. If you're unlucky, Goliath Drow may come partnered with Life Spell Punks who'll heal them up, just for an extra kick in the teeth. First appearance: Skylanders: Spyro's adventure
Jack Frost
Hee-ho! One of the most iconic demons to ever appear in an ATLUS title, Jack Frost is a mythical trickster of snow and ice. Naturally, he packs several powerful Bufu spells that he can use to freeze enemies right in their tracks. His fame even extends to his own universe, as there's plenty of merchandise of him to be found. But wait, I though most normal people were unaware of shadows like him! Hmm... Something's fishy here. First appearance: Shin Megami Tensai
Despacito Spiderlings
Offspring of the more threatening Despacito Spider, these little buggers swarm a target en masse, hoping to defeat it with sheer numbers. Though they lack the mental compulsion abilities of their fully grown form, they do pack something far more horrifying: the implication that these things breed. I'm not sure I want to know, really.... First appearance: Roblox
Right Hand Man
Second in command of the Toppats and best friend of Reginald, no one actually knows RHM's true name. One thing that is known about him is his dedication to the Toppat cause and deadly fighting ability. A physical powerhouse who packs hefty firearms and advanced combat techniques like reflectors and shockwaves, you'd do well not to trifle with him, or he'll hound you to the ends of the earth to get payback. First appearance: Infiltrating the airship
Master Kohga
*After the Sheikah tribe failed to stop the great Calamity from ravaging Hyrule, the people turned against the advanced monks. Though some stayed dedicated to the cause of protecting the people, others grew bitter and sought revenge, forming a subsect known as the Yiga clan who worshipped Ganon and attacking anyone they came across. Formed by many deadly assassins and blademasters, none is more dangerous than Master Kohga, who wields the ancient Sheikah techniques of force shields, levitation, and magnetization with practice and skill in battle against the hero of the wilds. Well, maybe not TOO much skill. Just bop him while his projectiles hover over him, and see what I mean. First appearance: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Galleom 2.0
This classic Subspace war machine spent some time as a spirit after being defeated by three traveling swordsmen and two young boys, but Neo Tabuu rebuilt, revamped, and refurbished him for revenge. Galleom 2.0 is significantly stronger than the previous model (which is certainly saying something!) and is much more versatile too, with many new armaments such as a powerful flail weapon and a nasty heavy duty laser cannon concealed within those big metal fists. Though this rampaging Robo-Rhino is a creature of few words, it does exude an aura of respect for those who can surpass even it in combat. First appearance: Super Smash Brothers AU
GAL Mobile Weapons Platform
Short for Gatling Assault Laser mobile weapons platform, this Neo Subspace army transport vehicle was modeled after Galleom's tank form. In addition to the countless Shadow Bugs it contains to release in the form of Primids and other such bad guys, this assault vehicle is equipped with a Gatling laser and two missile launchers to discourage any attackers, and it's rocket boosters and thick metal armor allow it to soak up damage and ram opponents with impunity. However, there's also a certain nostalgic feeling one gets when they look at it and remember what it was based off of. Ah.... Even now, it brings back fond memories of that showdown in the wilds. First appearance: Super Smash Brothers AU
Neo Tabuu
Once thought to be destroyed along with his Great Maze, Tabuu has risen again by absorbing the power of two fallen gods of light and dark. Determined to see his vision of a world of Subspace come to fruition, he adopts the moniker of Neo Tabuu as he scours the multiverse for worthy generals to serve in his new army. Whatever dimension the neon butterfly hailed from is long lost to history, but whether that plays a role in his motives is anyone's guess. Just what is he..? First appearance: Super Smash Brothers AU
Reginald Copperbottom
Don't let his impeccable fashion and posh accent fool you- this stick figure has lead the notorious Toppat Clan on many a successful heist. He earned both his second hat and leadership of the clan by overthrowing the previous leader. Though Reginald may insist upon the clan following a sort of honor code, he himself is known to take actions that are cowardly and downright dishonorable- but every decision he makes is to ensure that the clan prospers as it has done ever since it was first conceived. First appearance: Infiltrating the airship
Nagagog
These growing sumo-esqe Subspace bruisers are back to serve as heavy lifters and heavier hitters. Though most simply retain their ability to grow after being significantly hurt, some of the new generation of Nagagog have mutated the ability to grow into a form even stronger than their red form without taking any damage. However, these lucky few are so cocky as a result that you'll often find them napping on the job, allowing you to sneak past, or get in a preemptive strike if you're looking to tussle. You know what they say, "you snooze, you lose!" First appearance: Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Borboras
Yet another veteran enemy of the first Subspace war, Borboras is significantly more versatile than they were in their first incarnation. In addition to their previous ability to blow foes back with gale-force winds, they can spit bouncing bombs for more of a punch, or even signal other members of the Subspace army by trumpeting from their distinct snouts. Who says an old baddie can't learn new tricks? First appearance: Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Futaba Sakura
A girl warped in a belief that she was the one who killed her mother, the Phantom Thieves stole her heart (After a blackmail from her, of course) First appearance: Persona 5
Steve [Minecraft] (Alt 2)
In Subspace 2, Steve seems harmless, at first. But he eventually does betray the heroes. How rude of him!

2020.08.17 20:42 FirstBreath1 It Takes More Than Fucking Someone You Don't Know to Keep Warm

I don’t know when he first became me, or when I first became him, and answering that question is like picking between the chicken and the egg, but my wife bought the video game White Valley University on August the 5th, and our lives have been irrevocably fucked ever since that day.
Her intentions were good. I should start out by saying that first and foremost. I don’t blame her for any of it. Quarantine drives a wedge between the strongest of relationships. It’s an innocent fact, an open fact, one we’d all do better admitting to every now and again. I think she thought we just needed a break up from routine. Something different than black coffee, plain toast, dressing the kiddos, signing them up for homeschool, slouching down to the cave to telework, emerging only for Netflix, or cheetos, or whole wheat pasta, or bedtime; just in time to wake up and do the same shit all over again, and again, and again. We just needed something new. Something exciting. Something captivating, right? A hobby, maybe, like painting. Or reading. I don’t fuckin’ know. Maybe we’d be a lot better off if we just bought a puzzle or something. That’s what all the Facebook Moms and Dads do, anyway, right? Set the shit up and pose enough for the Internet world to think you're sociable?
We didn’t get the puzzle.
Sidney instead ventured off into the far corners of the Internet, in search of a particular video game, one that would fit our completely polar personalities; and therefore be interesting enough for us both to get into. She struck out on Amazon. She tried Gamestop too. Nothing good. We settled for a deeper dive into eBay.
I liked sports. Always have. I played Halo, and Counterstrike, and other stuff as a kid, so I would be open to variety, but my wife was never interested in those sorts of things. Sidney liked fantasy. Sidney liked roleplay. She grew up on Roller Coaster Tycoon, the Sims, and world building universes with intricate avatars and delicate storylines.
WVU fit that bill.
Her big blue eyes lit up like flying saucers when she read the product description for the first time. It was one of those types of things where she asked me if I wanted to buy it, like a question only for the sake of manners, but the reality was if my answer was no - we would almost certainly be in a fight.
“Enter the lives of Anton, Melissa, Alyssa, and Nicole.” she read. “Chart their path from the first day of Freshman Year at White Valley University until Graduation Day. Choose a major field of study, establish relationships, fall in LOVE, and so, so much more in this entirely immersive experience from the creators of SAINT LAZARUS DAY.”
“What system?”
“Says it doesn’t need a system.
“It needs a system.”
“Says they will mail you a new console just for the game.”
“That’s impossible.”
“It’s not.”
“Seriously?”
“Seriously.”
I had never heard of anything like it. Now, in retrospect, the feeling from the fleeting Google results, is that most people have not heard of it. But the look in my wife’s eye was sheer and complete defeat. Our son didn’t go to bed until three the previous night. She needed this. We needed it.
“Let’s do it.”

The payment went through without a problem, but the seller’s name was blocked, and that didn’t bother me as much as it should. The console itself took a couple days to arrive. Sometime around the night of the thirteenth, Sidney pulled it off the front porch, rushed downstairs to hook it up, and shouted for me to join her.
I didn’t really know what to expect. I put the kids to bed after about an hour’s battle. I grabbed a beer. I shut off all the nights and headed down into the basement for what should have been, at most, another hour of gaming before bed.
“You can be Anton, obviously,” Sidney chattered as I got settled. “I will be Melissa. They are dating!”
The TV lit up with an array of different options. The graphics were pretty incredible for a seemingly unknown system. We selected our characters from a neat little lineup, and soon after, we were immediately dropped into a small four bedroom dorm. My guy was wearing jeans and a white tee shirt. Sidney’s was naked.
“I can get used to this.”
“You can see my coolie!” Sidney squealed. “We need to pick our outfits. Go over to your closet.”
I obliged and skimmed through the results of clothing. Like most games, only the most basic options were available, while the more decadent options were unlockable by achievements completed in the game. If I picked a Science major, I got a labcoat, if I completed law, I got a suit… you get the idea. None of them really seemed to fit me. I probably took a while.
“I am going to be a softball player,” Sid mumbled. “Or maybe a sorority girl. It is so hard to pick. So many options.”
“Yup.”
“What are you going to pick?”
“Can’t I just wear this?”
“No you can’t just wear that,” Sid scowled. “You’re not being fun.”
I recognized that tone right off the bat. This was the ‘you are not taking this seriously’ voice that almost inevitably led to the hurt but defiant ‘why did you agree to play anyway’. Three seconds later and we’d be in another fight, the exact thing we wanted to avoid, so I backpedaled as quickly as possible.
“Okay, okay, I’ll be a musician.”
Sidney giggled. The game granted my character a bandana and loose jacket before dropping him back in the dorm. We were free to move about. I quickly shuffled my character over to Sidney’s room, but before getting there, a help tip popped up.
You can now customize your character’s features via Facial Recognition Technology! Just hit X and position your face in front of the camera on the front of the console!
I moved to protest. Sid beat me to it. She hit X and stuck her face in front of the camera with a big, dopey grin. The screen snapped like it took a picture.
....Recalculating....
We both laughed at the result. Her eyes were closed. Her mouth was wide open. And her teeth encompassed about ninety percent of the picture.
“Accept,” she giggled. “Your turn.”
I sighed and positioned myself evenly in front of the camera. I didn’t want her to make fun of me, so I tried to be serious. I thought about smiling, but before I could muster up the strength, Sidney hit X, and the screen snapped again.
….Recalculating....
I got a jolt out of the result. Anton looked just like me. Brown hair, blue eyes, medium height, slight beard, slight gut. The character smirked from the dorm room, and I swear, I have seen myself make the same stupid face in the mirror while getting ready. I won’t lie. It creeped me out.
“Wow…. so handsome!”
Sidney moved her cursor to try and find my character in the common area. Another help tip popped up.
You can now customize your character’s voice via Voice Recognition Technology! Select Y and speak no less than three full sentences into the controller’s microphone!.
“You first,” she gestured. “Say something.”
I hit Y.
“My name is Marcus and I love Sidney Rae Miller more than anything in the entire world.”
She smiled.
“Two more.”
I hesitated.
“My name is Marcus and I wish Sidney Rae Miller didn’t have a clothing option.”
She giggled.
“My name is Marcus and I just want to play the damn game.”
She scowled. Sidney finished up her sentence with a few generic lines. We went to move our characters again. Another help tip popped up.
“Look… it can link to Social Media.”
“No.”
“Why not?”
“Why would we give them that information?”
“Why not?”
“Because it’s not safe!”
“How is it not safe?”
“Anybody could use that data. You don’t even know who you’re giving it to!”
“It’s already online anyway!”
I groaned.
“You think any idiot with half a brain can’t find your stupid fucking YouTube channel?
My anxiety level ticked up a notch. I had to draw the line somewhere. Something about the game creeped me out, sure, but it was more than that. I was tired. I worked all day. I took care of the kids all day. I didn’t want to play some guy that probably harvested my data and sold it halfway around the world before we finished even setting up.
“I’m going to bed, hon. You can play.”

I knew Sidney would be mad at me. I knew she would hold it as a grudge, at least for a couple days, but I didn’t care. The whole charade started to wear thin. We didn’t need a fantasy version of ourselves to change. We just needed to do it on our own. I could change. I knew I could. I just needed a chance. Maybe she needed space. I had to give her a little space… right?
And so I didn’t think much of it when she didn’t come to bed.
I didn’t think much of it when she didn’t help get the kids up in the morning.
And as the now proceeding day’s hours slipped from the morning into the afternoon, with the television set still blaring downstairs, I still held out hope that she would come upstairs and apologize.
She didn’t.

I woke up that night to a rough shrug of the shoulder. Sidney looked like a caricature of herself. Her hair was tangled like rope. There were food stains on her shirt and her breath smelled like alcohol. I knew from the moment I saw her that she had not slept a bit in the previous twenty-four hours. I knew that she probably drank for most of it as well.
“You have to see,” she slurred. “You have to see Anton. He can sing. He can sing.”
I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes. I pushed back the covers and grumpily followed her frantic footsteps. I didn’t say a word. I didn’t really know how to react to the whole thing. It was so completely out of Sid’s character to do any of these things, to the point where I wondered where she even got the alcohol to get drunk with, because we had so little of it in the house.
“It’s incredible. He sounds just like you. Really,” Sidney shouted over her shoulder. I had to remind her to keep her voice down so the kids didn’t wake up. “They’re fine,” she snapped as her tiny feet bounded down the steps two at a time. “Just listen to this, it’s amazing, you could do this.”
I stifled a yawn and followed her willingly. But I couldn’t hold back disgust when we made it into the gaming area. The adjacent table was covered with half empty, half filled drink glasses. The couch was decorated with discarded bags of chips and crackers. The entire room had a distinct scent to it, and even now, I won’t call it urine - but it smelled an awful lot like urine.
“Look at this!” Sidney squealed as she pointed to the TV. “Anton’s been practicing.”
A large group of the characters were gathered at what looked to be a concert. I immediately recognized Sidney’s new and improved character, with a readjusted face, now decked out in one of the more decadent outfits, front and center by the stage. The other two computer bot roommates were standing next to her. But no Anton.
I scanned the crowd for a minute and still didn’t see him.
“Hit X,” Sidney smiled. “On controller 2 - yours.”
I obliged.
The crowd started to cheer. A drawn curtain slowly peeled back. A familiar song started to play through the speakers and an even more familiar face appeared onstage - mine.
I was dumbfounded.
Anton started to sing. With my voice. And when I say he sang… you should know.… I am a terrible singer. Sure, I had a band back in high school, and me and my friends recorded a few demo tapes. None of them were any good. Trust me with that much.
But Anton… he sounded perfect. And I don’t know how to describe that in quite the right way. Like if my voice could carry a tune, or hit every dancing note of the same Frightened Rabbit song my band Fireside covered half a hundred times, then maybe, somehow, I could be half as good. But it just wasn’t me.
My hole, I’ll get my hole.
I’ll get my hole, get my hole, get my hole.
And I will find out more.
I hit pause.
“How did he find that?”
“I added your YouTube channel.”
“Why did you do that?”
“Because it's fun!”
I laughed nervously.
“You could sound like that, you know.”
“Like what?”
“Like Anton. If you practiced.”
I couldn’t believe the callousness and cruelty in her voice. It stung.
“No I can’t.”
“Why not?”
“Because I tried.”
“It’s your voice.”
“That’s not my voice.”
“Who else could it be?”
I didn’t have an answer for her there.
“You could be thin like him too,” she muttered. “If you tried.”
“I do try.”
“You never try.”
I didn’t have an answer again. I didn’t have an answer for anything. I didn’t understand why she was so nasty. The past few days completely caught me off guard. We were happy. Bored, yes sure, but happy. I didn’t know what to do, so I did what I did best, I ran away. I stormed out of the room like a baby and shouted -
“Go to bed!”
loud enough to wake the actual baby.
I spent the next twenty calming my daughter to sleep in a now much emptier bed. I couldn’t believe her. I didn’t understand what was happening. It just hurt. I was so mad that my sleep deprived brain spent less than a minute worrying about my poor wife’s actual mental state.
That was a mistake.

I woke up to moaning.
I set my daughter down in her bed and followed the pleasured groans down the hall to the basement.
A pair of Cheeto stained shorts decorated the couch.
Sidney acted a little surprised when I caught her. Like she couldn’t hear my footsteps tracing above. Like she couldn’t hear me knocking on the door. She grabbed her clothes in an unembarrassed trot. She got dressed. Then she turned her attention back to the game.
I looked at the TV.
Anton was front and center. He had a guitar slung over his back, and a vest without a shirt, with thick muscles pulsating over the top, like he somehow just finished a workout. And he had this dumb little grin on his face... this stupid fucking smile….. It just made every vein and stem of blood in my body boil like an oven.
Press X to go back to the party!
I attacked the system like a lion let out of its cage. I ripped the cable from the wall, allowing the wires to pull and rip from the console, cracking the screen in the process. I ignored Sidney’s screams and protests. I pulled the disk from the tray. I snapped it into a million little pieces. I shrugged her hand off my arm when I took the entire mess upstairs, outside, and deposited it into the garbage.
By the time I got back, she was gone.

I checked everywhere. I checked upstairs. I checked my kid’s rooms. I checked the kitchen. I checked outside again. Gone. Gone, gone, gone. It took me a good ten minutes to realize the one place she could be, the one place that did not make any sense, right around the time the television in the basement started playing again.
I descended the stairs slowly. It was the same song. Our song. The song I practiced half a hundred times in high school with only the completely desperate hope of impressing her. Even through the cracked screen, and even without the goddamn console attached, the stupid fucking thing still played that song. Our song.
Can you see in the dark?
Can you see the look on your face?
I picked the TV back up and stared at the screen. Anton and Melissa were back in the dorm. Anton was strumming the guitar evenly, looking deeply into Melissa’s eyes, while pink little hearts displayed overhead. I didn’t have a controller to click away from it. Not anymore.
I waited. I watched them. I didn’t know what else to do. I couldn’t exactly attack a video game character. And then my avatar did something newly impossible. He looked at me. I don’t mean he looked offscreen. I don’t mean he looked somewhere in the distance. He looked at me, right into my eyes, and it felt like… it felt like he saw me.
Anton stopped playing Keep Yourself Warm. He raised the guitar over his head.
“No…” I muttered. “Please…”
Sidney’s avatar looked deep into his eyes. Her expression remained unchanged. She loved him. She loved him when he swung the guitar and shattered her forehead. She loved him while bits of brain peaked through the fractured skull and fell into a heaping mess by her blood soaked feet. She loved him when he stood up, and swung harder, and stronger, until the guitar shattered into nothing but bits of shredded wood and twisted metal commingled with the horribly mangled remains of my only love’s once beautiful face.
When Anton was done, he straightened himself up, and sat down back on his bed in White Valley University. He looked at me one more time, and smiled, with that same damn smile, my smile.
The television flickered and showed a blank INPUT 1.
Sidney has been missing ever since.
M.

You can give them by going to the Dorm>Warehouse>Gift tab or going to your owned doll profile and tapping the + button by the EXP bar. Note that they are not affected by dummy link EXP multiplier. They give 3000 fixed EXP per report.
Is GFL being phased out/abandoned?

NO

When do I do night campaigns?
Best metric would be when career quests send you there. Remember to equip PEQs for accuracy and bring HGs for map vision.
Is it worth to reroll in this game?
Depends on what you value more. If you want a pretty easy time until endgame, no need. Game gives you free strong dolls. Endgame? Mostly not, since this is a game of accumulation instead of meta characters.

Technical Help

I'm pressing Start Operation but it's not responding.
By the ancient art of Powercycling, you shall be fixed!
My game freezes on a night map. What happened?
Griffin sabotaged your friend support because they are all you need. Griffin apologized for the sabotage. They now allow you to call a friend. Though, if it still happens, Griffin lied.
The tutorial froze. What should I do?
Eh, it happens. Consensus is just skip it. Apparently it works on specific screen resolutions.
I got an "Illegal Action Detected" warning. What happened?
Mostly desync and having "invalid" inputs. Just restart it.
How does GFL check the screen ratio?
Here.
Game keeps getting stuck in the title screen. Fetching server, download screen...
Switch between WiFi/Data. Else use VPN.
Game is not available in my Play Store. How can I play this game?
QooApp or Apkpure.
Where to go for tech support?
FB and Twitter is said to be responsive enough.
Update progress is stuck at 90%/100%. What should I do?
Wait a minute, change WiFi connection, change to data, use VPN, restart client, clear a single asset, or reinstall.
Enemy mortar keeps shooting me and I don't who the target is.
Battle Simplification in Settings is set to on probably.
My game freezes upon winning a battle. What happened?
Popular answer: Memory Leaks. Restart client is always the default option.
Just bought a gem pack/monthly card but I didn't get it yet. What do I do?
Go through the process again then back out at the payment screen. If it fails, contact support.

Resupply/Costumes/Furnitures

How to get my raifu new clothes?
Future event? Wait. Current? Pull for it. Past? Black Cards/Bundle resale.
T-Doll Costumes available now?
GFC spreadsheet. Gamepress list.
How do I get Black Cards?
Just give the duplicate costume. Nice and simple.
Where are the skins? I can't find them.
Go to the Dorms, then Warehouse at the bottom-right, then Gifts tab at top. If you still don't see them, restart client.
What if I don't have the doll I have costume for?
Kalina will wear it and give it back when the owner comes home.
Where can I get furnitures for my dorms?
Resupply. Same as where you get skins.
I want to clean my furniture inventory. How do I do that?
Dorm>Furniture>Trash Icon>Take your pick.
How does the Radiant Collection rate work?
If a banner is featured in a radiant collection, it has a 50% in 2% chance being the featured, meaning 1% for featured radiant banners.
For normal rate, 2% divided by the number of banners in the radiant is the chance of pulling a skin from a specific banner.
I won't be using the costume. How can I scrap it?
Pro tip: You can't. You'll have to use it one way or another.
What's the difference between L2D and Simplified L2D?
L2D is the reactive Live2D, Simplified L2D are animations on loop, except when they talk.
Do Gem Package skins go to Black Card Exchange?
Some do, some don't. What's sure is that gem pack collab skins and MC skins are gem packs only.

Field Map

My team says Ammo/Ration depleted.
Move them to helipad. Double-tap them. Resupply is yellow button.
I just had a skirmish and saw that my team isn't in proper formation. Can I fix it without quitting the map?
me not caring enough to paraphrase it
How do I get the gold medals in maps?
Do I keep the drops if I terminate/restart?
"Recently acquired" option in the armory says yes.
Why do I get the lack of ammo/ration warning and sometimes not?
You'll get the warning when you lack either of them and when you can see the enemy.

Combat/Battle/Skirmish

How do I prevent my tanks from dying?
Aside from bringing appropriate dolls/equipments, kiting.
More kiting.
Another.
How to fight Judge?
3MG(armor tiles, 2nd+ clip skills)2SG. As long as your SGs take 1DMG from her, you can swap some MGs for HGs.
9-6 = 30DMG; 9-4E = 42DMG; 10-6 = 50DMG; 9-4N = 55DMG.
Will I lose the tile buffs if my dolls retreated/moved/lose link ?
No. You only lose them if they're absent at the start of the skirmish. On that note, retreating dolls who had their buffs activate will not remove said buff.
Why are the doll skills not activating?
Is the auto skill button on? Is it on forced manual? Is it a flare skill?
Skills cannot activate when they cannot shoot, i.e. SG/MG reloading, dolls moving, no enemy in range.
Does retreating a doll during battle/skirmish have an effect on affection points?
Nope. They ONLY lose some if they or other dolls in the group died during mob battles. And auto-battles DO NOT decrease affection points.
Do HP shields stack?
Yes. Still no idea what is older in single frame simultaneous activation.
How do I deal with enemies with armor?
Use dolls that can equip AP ammo.
Do debuffs stick if I retreat my dolls?
Rudimentary testing says no. Also applies to enemy side on-screen effects like molotovs, smoke, grenade, stun.

For Iterating FSTs beyond yellow 5★. They have to be level 100 and at 5★ for Iteration to be available.

Factory Production

Is there a voodoo recipe for *insert pennies here*?
Freedom of information, just add net connection.
When should I do T-Doll Heavy Production?
Preferrably during rate-ups. Low priority otherwise.

Neural Upgrade/MOD

How do Neural Upgrades work?
Gamepress. ATM. GFLCorner.
What's the Fire Control Core for?
Necessary for modding 5★ dolls.
What's the time frame for modding dolls?
From their release 'til forever.

Research>Neural Upgrade tab at the left.
Who should I MOD first?
Gamepress version.

Yes, unless you're modding 2★ dolls. First, go to factory then dismantle all dupes. When you get enough cores, you can use them to raise MOD levels.

Resource Management

Where to use gems?
Echelon slots up to 6 at the lowest, 8 for actually constant (ranking not included) logistics. Then about 5 dorms for batteries. YMMV after that.
How are the bonus gems applied?
Only within the time the event is ongoing.
I want to F2PBTW. How do I do that?
For gems: Daily log-ins. Sharing in FB/Twitter. Clearing maps with gold medal. Achievements. Events. Ranking participation.
For tokens: Dailies. Weeklies. Expedition. Logistics. Achievements. Events. Shop.

Data. Always data. If not available Memory Fragments up until 9999.
Where can I use Calibration Tickets?
Equipment Calibration, Fairy Calibration, HOC Chip Rotation, More Anticipation...
Do first purchase gem bonus reset?
Only on server anniversary.
If I buy multiple Monthly Gem Packages, will it stack?
As in more than 30 a day? No. It being a 2 month distribution? Yes.
My resources (Manpwr, Ammo, MRE, Parts) are uncomfortably low? Where can I get some?
Most efficient and consistent is logistics. Though you can get them through the shop, quest and event rewards, random nodes.

Theater

Theater tips?
Theater tips. Theater tips. Theater tips. Theater tips.
Do I have to save HOC charges and Fairy points for the boss?
Nope. Joins boss battle regardless of charges. Replenishes on next raid. Go ham.
What does "Settle Reward" do? It sounds ominous.
More like "Settlement Reward". Just shows you things you'll get once Theater ends.

Tactical Dolls

Is XXX doll good? Can I scrap throw them away? Or should I duplicate them.
Any kind of XXX doll is good.
You're a shikicunt if you scrap them.
You're a shikikan of culture if you dupe them.
I missed a limited doll. Will they come back?
Pray the collabs come back.
Why are the guns' names not including their manufacturer names?
Because licensing nightmare.
What's the drop rate for farmable dolls?
Limited and event farms have around 1%. 5★ on normal maps have rates way below 1%... usually. 10-4E Shrimp seems quite easy to get.
Which doll should I get with True Core Masks?
A shitty guide.
A shittier version.
The only guide you need.
How do I know the final value of the doll stats? And what are the caps for each stat?
Beware. Formula inside.
99999 for final damage. FOR ROF, it's listed on the formation screen, but in reality, it's by 5, so max for 120 is 116, i.e. 116-120 ROF has no difference. Crit Rate is 100% as per common sense.
Can I set the damaged art as permanent?
Only on the main screen. When choosing adjutants, tap the portrait when choosing a skin.
How are affections calculated?
Quick maths from the 'hood.
What does oathing a doll do?
Additional line for oath, higher affection cap, double EXP gain (map EXP, auto-battles, CRs) on MODs, complete repair and resupply.
The speech bubble hearts, SKK. What do they mean?
Dorm? Tap them to gain ¼ of an affection. Echelon portrait? At 95-100 affection pts.
Are there welfare units in this game? And if so, are they permanently missable?
Yes. No.
Where can I repair my damaged dolls?
Repair button at the main menu. You can also repair them on helipads pre and post-deployment. Do note though that repairing post-deployment cost twice the resources and locks you out of S rank (gold) medals.
Is a doll worth farming?
Worth it if they can only be acquired by running the maps, otherwise just do construction.
Which skills are able to get critical hits?
Rule of thumb: Unless otherwise stated, all skillshots, grenades, and molotovs don not get critical hits.

Events

Why didn't I complete "Consume 100 batteries" for the bingo mission when I EXP trained my HOCs?
Because you can get them back, that's what. It only counts when the training is finished, meaning there's no way to take it back.
Do auto-battles count for "Defeat Enemies"?
No.
What do I do with unused Keycards during the bingo event?
Keep them. You'll get 5 Calibration Tickets per 1 Unused Keycard. Points go to trash. Source: Game info tab.

No. Event currencies are for the current ones only.
When will my event medals expire?
One week after the end of said event.
Will the *insert ranking reward here* be available in the future?
Only if they rerun ranking maps.
Where can I see rankings?
Tap the bottom-right arrow at the main screen.
I wasn't able to clear the event. Will I still get the clear rewards when they get added to Campaign?
Nope. Gutted rewards compared to original. Free shit is free shit, and doll rewards gets cycled to Limited Dolls.

Fairies

What are fairies?
ATM Guide.
How do fairies work?
GFC.
Does the Fervor talent give a 10% boost at the beginning of the battle?
0s, 8s, 16s. So yes.

Third Party

I've heard of GFAlarm. Is it safe to use?
It's not modifying anything that can affect their income nor does it modify gameplay elements that would necessitate a ban. Should be fine.
Is it fine to use GFCalc?
Recommended more like.
Are keybinds bannable?
"Officially" recommended not to use keybinds. If you're willing to take the risk, go for it. Macros ARE a bannable offense, full stop.
Which emulators are good for GFL?
Mumu is the most recommended. There's also Nox, Memu, LDPlayer... Bluestacks seems to get shat though.

Others

Auto-battles?
Saves your sanity from painful-AF-to-grind-for-drops maps for starters.
Can I get SPEQs/Limited dolls from auto-battles?
Yes, you can.
Do support echelons use equipments?
Equipments, formation, and apparently costumes too are saved instances. Doll levels, equipment levels, skill levels, and chibi aren't.
How do friend batteries work?
From QnA.
I didn't get *insert reward here*. I checked my inventory but they're not there. How do I get them?
Have you checked the quests? Or they might be in the mail. Point is, CHECK THE BOTTOM PART OF THE HOME SCREEN FOR A WHITE EXCLAMATION POINT INSIDE A RED CIRCLE! Or wait if it's major event rewards. I really do think that it's pretty hard to miss. And please read every single text on the screen. Please.
Any substitute for brainlets damage sim?
Github version and non-English version for starters. ATM has one too. Hycdes.
How do I get a higher success rate for logistics?
Levels.
Would the equipment I'm enhancing get bonus points if I used an enhanced fodder?
Apparently no.
What's the gacha rate for costumes?
Can someone translate?
As I see it, list 1 is normal t-doll prod, list 2 is heavy t-doll prod, list 3 is normal equip prod, list 4 is costume gacha, list 5 is heavy equip prod.
Which SF units are considered dolls/machines/armored/unarmored?
Note that Jupiter Cannons count as unarmored machine type.
Will there be problems with switching between two devices regularly?
Only if you think that manually logging in is a problem.
What's the Double Jupiter formation?
M4 MOD II + self-buff RF (usually IWS) + 3 HG (usually ROF buffers).
I want to see a particular loading screen. Where can I see it?
GFWiki.
Why aren't my dorm batteries appearing?
Either it's because it's not their time yet or that you should check your surplus batteries.
Which is better to buff, Damage or Critical Damage?
Why not both? Though if it's strictly one or the other, depends on the armor value of the enemy and your armor penetration. Damage if you're far from penetrating them, Damage or Crit. Damage if it's about sub 20 to full penetration.
I can't access the new map even though I already cleared the prerequisite map.
Beat it again.
Which dolls appear in which dorms?
Echelon position corresponds to dorm positione i.e. Echelon 1 in Dorm 1, Echelon 2 in Dorm 2, etc.
When will dorm battery, daily gift, friend battery reset?
Clock for your every need. And ranking updates one hour after Kalina's Daily Gift.
Which map is best for auto-battles?
List of auto-battle statistics.
What does total exp in the auto-battle completion mean?
...Not sure.
How can I play GFL if Apple Store doesn't have it?
Use Android, use emulator, use VPN, use jailbreak.
What scope should I use on ARs?
Crit scope at day, PEQ at night. ASVAL mod is just crit scope. STAR and SOP has crit scope as default and holo(SPEQ)/PEQ during day/night.
How does the rescue station work?
I claim no ownership.
What're the rewards for the Defense Drill?
Also includes the things you'll fight.

2020.07.07 20:51 currently-existing Down the astrology rabbit hole PT.2 - Is our destiny in our hands, in fact?

Since we know it’s a simulation (original post: https://imgur.com/gallery/zectqto)
Is our higher self still a thing with this realization? As in living your life believing if you’re in tune with your higher self, you allow (it)them to lead you; and if you’re not in tune, you don’t make the best of decisions?
See... I discovered astrology and omg it’s helped so much but now that I’ve gotten to this point where I realize it’s a huge video game, what’s the purpose of this? Simply to have a human experience?
Are we little avatars? I’ve totally felt like a sim character before. Hell, I’ve watched other people sim it out too.
Is our destiny in our hands, in fact? Do we actually have free will?
Astrology literally tells us what happens and timing is generally accurate as well... does this not write our story for us? Are we thousands of years of data for a study?
On a personal level, I really feel like no one deserves judgement. Even the raunchiest person. Why? Because they were literally born with it and only had specific tools in their tool box. They didn’t have another manual or option.
Lol SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTIONS!!

2020.06.26 20:58 biggreekgeek Flatten the Curve. Part 25. Sentinel World Simulation. Palantir. Gorgon Stare. Gotham 2020 NYC Nuclear Disaster simulation. Welcome to the new normal. Don’t you feel safe?

Previous post on this subject.
Every breath you take, every move you make. Every bond you break, every step you take (I'll be watching you). Every single day, every word you say. Every game you play, every night you stay (I'll be watching you). The Police.
I've got an idea! Let's see if we can pitch this to the New Normal police security surveillance apparatus as a theme song and do an eighties type sitcom! It'll be great.
But let's not fool ourselves, they probably already have this on file.
In a world run digital panopticon you can't hide. State awareness is almost everywhere. Palantir, and others are data mining all of us. Did you know you have a digital avatar they use to create predictable behavioral outcomes for you?
We can also see who is talking to whom and observe important changes. I'll give you an analogy: suppose there's a house, and there's people going in and out. I can't actually see the people going in and out, but I can see the number of cars that pull up to the house. Say I normally see two to three cars a day and I suddenly see 20 cars pull up today. That tells me something is going on. Even if you can't get the detailed information, just looking at changes in communication patterns can alert you that something is happening.

Don't you feel safe? I feel safe. Safe from who? Safe from us, I guess.

According to a former international law enforcement agent, who requested anonymity due to ongoing professional obligations, the NSA can likely pinpoint suspicious communications activity using a predictive model, based on call records and Internet activity. The predictions may include deriving name, age, and gender data, or plotting likely future locations of individual people.
Now do you remember the Gorgon Stare? The eye in the sky that had a test run on a blimp over Minneapolis in 2019?
The Gorgon Stare is the eye-in-the-sky, a military surveillance drone built by the Pentagon, that can simultaneously track 1,000 moving targets. It’s the cute nickname for a type of wide-area motion imagery (WAMI) technology, that allows a camera, which has had its power greatly expanded, to be attached to a drone—and can then watch and record a massive area. To break it down further, what WAMI does is expand the camera aperture, so an entire city can be watched at once. What it’s really good at is zooming in on particular parts of the imagery on the ground—with a decent amount of detail—while still being able to record everything else. Top that with lots of resolution. For example, an iPhone has roughly 12 million pixels in its camera. Compare that to a Gorgon Stare with 1.8 billion pixels or 1.8 gigapixels. Crunch the numbers, that’s a resolution 150 times more powerful than an iPhone.
Not only can it follow one thousand targets at once, it can do so for an entire month, and it can backtrack and see where each target went and when they were there. It's like a game of hide and seek, except that you can't hide.
So they data mine everything you do. Anonymously, of course. Because Anonymous is on your side. Right? They have Guy Fawkes masks like V for Vendetta, right? The usage of Anonymous as a name isn't meant to subconsciously reassure you every time you read about Anonymously collecting your data, right?
To be clear I am not suggesting V for Vendetta is part of some system of control, but I am suggesting that the word association for the hacker collective Anonymous isn't coincidental, and I'm suggesting the group isn't what most of us think it is, but that's a post for another day.
So let's keep calm and carry on like those helpful memes suggested, which seemed to go viral so quick out of nowhere, not that memes are a form of propaganda or behavioral manipulation, are they?
Memetics: A Growth Industry in US Military operations was published in 2005 by Michael Prosser, now a Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Corps. He proposed the creation of a 'Meme Warfare Center'.
Strange how our normal everyday lives seem wrapped up in the military, isn’t it? It would almost seem like we're being subjected to the doctrines of Unrestricted Warfare or Full Spectrum Dominance, and we don’t know where in a war, just like the doctrines say.
It's a good thing we have so many frontline workers and we're all in this together, isn’t it?
So let's keep calm and investigative on, shall we?

It’s Sentient

Meet the classified artificial brain being developed by US intelligence programs.
Synthetic Environment for Analysis and Simulations, or SEAS, is currently being used by Homeland Security and the US Defense Department to simulate crises on the US mainland. SEAS "enables researchers and organizations to try out their models or techniques in a publicly known, realistically detailed environment." It "is now capable of running real-time simulations for up to 62 nations, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and China. The simulations gobble up breaking news, census data, economic indicators, and climactic events in the real world, along with proprietary information such as military intelligence. The Iraq and Afghanistan computer models are the most highly developed and complex of the 62 available to JFCOM-J9. Each has about five million individual nodes representing things such as hospitals, mosques, pipelines, and people." SEAS was developed to help Fortune 500 companies with strategic planning. Then it was used to help "recruiting commanders to strategize ways to improve recruiting potential soldiers". In 2004 SEAS was evaluated for its ability to help simulate "the non-kinetic aspects of combat, things like the diplomatic, economic, political, infrastructure and social issues". Sentient World Simulation is the name given to the current vision of making SEAS a "continuously running, continually updated mirror model of the real world that can be used to predict and evaluate future events and courses of action."
2004. This was up and running back then. Wasn't this before the Motorola Flip phone? It was definitely before the IPhone.
“With the entire Internet and thousands of databases for a brain, the device will be able to respond almost instantaneously to complex questions posed by intelligence analysts. As more and more data is collected — through phone calls, credit card receipts, social networks like Facebook and MySpace, GPS tracks, cell phone geolocation, Internet searches, Amazon book purchases, even E-Z Pass toll records — it may one day be possible to know not just where people are and what they are doing, but what and how they think.”
SEAS is now being used to:
• experiment with psychological operations or PSYOPs.
• help military leaders “develop and test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners”.
• predict and evaluate future events.
As long as you have a smart device on or around you, you are feeding your sim data. Everywhere you go, everything you say around your device, everything you do on your device is slowly creating a mirror copy of you acting sentient in a simulated Earth. They call your sim an “agent“.
You're an agent. Just like in the Matrix. Just like V for Vendetta. Could they be getting inspiration from the Movies? It sure looks that way, doesn't it. But if your a part of their virtual simulation, and they can run predictions based on your data, and they still allow your posts, doesn't it logically say the system doesn't (at this point) view you as a threat to the system?
"The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it."
Let's look at a non movie script for further clarification.
“Agents are distinct entities such as types of customers and suppliers, citizens, channels, and competitors. Agents can be used to model any group of people whose actions are important to the organization’s outcome. The agents’ behaviors are defined by actual data that demonstrates how the agents have acted in the past. SEAS incorporates genetic algorithms that allow the agents to react and learn from its own actions as well as actions by other agents. It is through the combination of the continual actions and reactions of all the agents that produces a very real and life-like environment that allows an organization to test different strategies and analyze the outcomes of executing those strategies – all in a simulated environment.”
See, you're a star in a simulated TV show! Aren't you and I lucky!
Of course we are, we're safe and why wouldn't we be? We don't have anything to hide, do we? Nope. Just good citizens talking about how lucky we are to have a government that keeps it's eye on us to keep us safe, right?
“Palantir” is generally used interchangeably to refer to both Thiel and Karp’s company and the software that company creates. Its two main products are Palantir Gotham and Palantir Metropolis, more geeky winks from a company whose Tolkien namesake is a type of magical sphere used by the evil lord Sauron to surveil, trick, and threaten his enemies across Middle Earth. While Palantir Metropolis is pegged to quantitative analysis for Wall Street banks and hedge funds, Gotham (formerly Palantir Government) is designed for the needs of intelligence, law enforcement, and homeland security customers.
A literature wink, just like the other possible literature winks that I mentioned, strange, isn’t it?
Now you may have noticed something else here, because I did. It jumped out at me. And I have to remind you here that words matter, they matter a lot. They especially matter when you're talking about matter that can turn into a supercritical mass and make you go boom, bye bye.
Did you notice one part of the company was called Palantir Gotham? Did you also know that there was an operation called Operation Gotham Shield held in NYC in 2017? It was a simulated event dealing with a Nuclear Explosion.
Operation Gotham Shield was a 2017 exercise conducted by the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) which tested civil defense response capabilities to a nuclear weapons attack against the New York metropolitan area.
Wait, it gets better. Did you know there was another exercise running at the same time under a different name?
Ardent Sentry 17 (led by the Northern Command), was another simultaneous operation which focused on military aid to the civil power, specifically "marshalling simulated forces". Ardent Sentry 17 was a command post exercise with staff operating from a primary command post at the 42nd Infantry Division headquarters in Troy, and a redundancy command post at the New York National Guard Joint Force Headquarters in Latham. It was overseen by GEN Timothy LaBarge of the New York National Guard who was given "dual status command", or authority to command both State of New York and United States military forces.
Sentry. Which is down the etymological tree from Sentinel.
So what, you might ask, at least the exercise is called sheild right? Doesn't that mean it won't happen?
Hopefully that's correct. But they did another exercise in 2020. What was it called? Gotham 2020. Hopefully dropping the shield portion was to conserve ink due to budget cuts.
Ok. So let's backtrack for a minute. We had an ad in the Tennessean about a nuclear detonation in Nashville. On the previous page there was Oak Ridge Laboratories and talk of a new Manhattan Project on that page, and Oak Ridge was part of the consortium of the old Manhattan Project. It reminded me of Dark, which is a show about time travel and a nuclear incident, and the question of whether or not we have free will or if we are a product or causality in a never ending stream of events, and if we can avoid a catastrophe. Oh, and the time travel plot device runs on a cell phone, just like Sentinel needs to help it run it's simulations for the security apparatus, to predict causal events to forecast the future, under the umbrella of Gotham, which is the same name of the exercise that ran in NYC this year, along with Sentry, a derivative of Sentinel.
Look, I'm not making predictions with this. And I'm not saying that Dark is part of a plot. I'm not. I actually think there's two possibilities with plots in TV shows mirroring real life events, and neither of them involve the concept of predictive programming presented for our consent. I find the idea illogical.
But what I don't find illogical are ideas about a nuclear disaster, nuclear waste (a lot of it! Seriously, it's frightening, and I don’t say that lightly) stored underground in containers that have been leaking, articles about solar flares and how they would shut down fail safes in nuclear reactors and cause meltdowns.
What about the prophecy in the AD and the TV show? Isn't a predictive model event by AI basically a technological prophecy?
I'm just presenting what I saw. That's it. Nothing more and nothing less. I'm not an Artificial Intelligence computer that can run simulations about the future. All I have are coincidences that I found, so take them as you will. As observations, not information, and I prefer information to observations when I'm trying to understand the world around me and ascertain a real future possible risk.
Take care. Be safe. Stay aware and be prepared. Talk soon.

[flipping through radio stations]
[DJ on radio] Good morning, simulation farmers!
This is the Pyromoth keeping you warm on the Ribbon and cool in your heart.
Here's a little melody from the old Cuddle Cats
with their classic hit
"Let Me Up, Let Me Down,But Don't Let Me In."
[vocal music playing faintly]
[DJ] Good morning!

-[beeps]-[computer] Ah!
Thanks for activating me, Master.
Which simulated universe
-will you enter today?-Hmm.
[computer] Mmm, Earth 1-9432.
Due to an easily avoidable operator error...
-[alarm beeping]-...all beings on this Earth
-have been destroyed.-Ah, shit.
[computer] Deleting Earth.
Earth 4-169,
due to yet another operator error, is undergoing a zombie apocalypse.
You picked Glasses Man.
This sim has a 23 Charisma rating.
Great choice!

[coughing]
God!
[shouting, chattering continues]
Oh, no! Glasses Man, no, no, no!
Please don't be dead! I'm sorry!Please don't be dead.
Your little glasses,I'll fix your glasses.
I'm the president.
Whoa!
Cool.
Do you mind if I record you for my, um...
vid-cast... data-cast...
Data-stream. My data-stream.
It goes out to everyone in the system.It goes into space.
Sure.
Okay, great.
[deep vocalizing]
[sniffs]
It just takes a second to set up.
-[beeping]-Sorry about this. Wait, hold on a second.
I guess... Well, I just want to thank you,first of all.
It's a privilege, man.
I know you've gotta be incredibly busy right now
with the zombie apocalypse happening around you.
Yeah, zombies...I really don't wanna talk about zombies.
Okay. What about the marijuana protesters?
-Those assholes?-Yeah.
First of all,people don't understand my point of view.
They think somehow I'm anti-pot or anti-legalization.
-[Clancy] Right.-I'm not actually "pro" either.
I'm pro human liberty,I'm pro the American system,
pro letting people determine their laws.
-Right.-I don't think this is...
-If I had to...-[sniffs]
...have a... You know, if somebody pressed my face to the mirror and said,
"Is it gonna be good or bad?"
I think it might end up being kinda not so good for people,
but so, I'll deal with it. I--
-But Frescher will deal with it.-Mr. President?
-Maybe it will be good.-Excuse me...
What? Can't you see I'm doing an interview with...
-My name's Clancy.-I gotta get back to Clancy.
-The zombies are inside the perimeter.-[President groans]
Just get me a rifle, I'll take care of it.
-You were saying?-Oh, yeah.
I read a recent study that said medical marijuana was associated
with close to 30 percent fewer deaths.
It's actually... It's actually... More data's come in since then.
-What's the data?-The data is if there's a lot of...
If there's available recreational pot, opiate use is way down.
-So it is helping? Interesting.-Simple. I know.
I saw that too.I thought, "This could be the answer!"
-Would you mind following me outside?-Yeah.
This could be the answer to the opiate epidemic
and the chronic pain thing.
I would much rather see people on a lot of pot
than any of the pills they're taking now,
because the pill combo that they get on the opiate and the benzodiazepines
and the sleeping medicine... "A," kills.
Absolutely, when patients die of drug use,
That's how they died today.
"B," perpetuates their pain, and they're... and they're...
they're, uh, disabled by it!
-Yeah.-They're disabled by it. They're helpless.
Pot... Some people are on the couch when they smoke a lot of pot,
but some people work just fine.
[Clancy] Well, one facet of marijuana that doesn't exist in opiates
-is that if you overdose on marijuana...-Hello!
Thank you, Mr. President!
Hello!
Thank you, Mr. President!
-Hello.-Mr. President, thank you!
Anyway...
-Um, your mind---You don't die.
-You don't die.-You don't die,
but you are dragged through your own personal neurosis,
-inner weaknesses, fears---Oh, if you over...
-If you have a quote, "overdose." Yeah.-People say, "I feel paranoid,"
and usually what they mean is,
"The marijuana is showing all these parts of myself
that I don't necessarily want to deal with right now."
[gun blasting]
That can create a lot of positive change for people. Not all the time.
A lot of times, I've definitely been paranoid and the things I've worried about
are ridiculous and absurd,and when I sober up, it's...
I recognize that, but a lot of times,some of this stuff I'm shown
on a heavy dose of marijuana,I come out of that knowing,
"Shit, man, I've gotta work on this.I need...
Why am I not exercising?
I need to exercise more. This is ridiculous.
Why am I...I'm drinking a little too much right now.
I need to slow down drinking."
That... Also, did I ever talk to you about how I almost died on sleeping pills
-years and years ago?-No.
Oh, God! Oh, man.
Um, there was a--A guy came to this party I was at...
-selling sleeping pills at, like...-[man groans]
-...12:00 p.m. at a party.-[President] Bizarre.
-Worst thing you could ever do.-"Get in your cars now! Go home!"
-Yeah, this is---"How much were you drinking?
-Oh, perfect, good combo!"-Yeah. And I bought some from him.
[gun blasting]
I don't even know why I would do that.
I'm well aware of the fact that you should never, ever in a million years
take benzos and drink.
Never do it! It's what kills everybody.This is the death combo!
-It is.-So I did it, and I remember--
One of the death combos.There are a few of them out there.
I think I took one pill,
and then I'm drinking and,like, feeling relaxed, and...
-But I forgot I---[President] This is the danger of benzos.
-[Clancy] This is how it kills you.-[President] Yeah, you forget.
-[Clancy] I took another.-Ambien does that. You forget.
By the way, I... Let me just clarify my--[grunting]
I hate this idea of "good" drugs and "bad" drugs.
There's no such thing as a good and a bad drug.
There's this chemical that's neither good nor bad, it just exists,
we either created or it exists in nature,
and then it's the relationship
that humans have with the substance that is the issue.
-So smart.-And what our individual biology is,
and what it triggers and whatnot.
That's the problem.
Like, Valium... [grunting]
What, if you're...need to have a colonoscopy...
-Valium or Valium-like drug-- Good!-Right. [laughs]
Now, if you're just drinking absinthe and partying and about to drive home,
-really bad!-[Clancy] Yeah!
-[Frescher] Oh! Thank you, sir!-Not because Valium good or bad,
'cause the circumstances and the relationship is bad.
I'll never forget it, man.
I was laying in bed that night,
trying to remember how many of the pills I'd taken.
-As I'm passing out---God.
And then I realize, "Oh, I can't move!"
-Like...-Oh!
I'm... If I wanted to get up right now,I don't think that I could get up.
-This is as I'm fading out into darkness.-Oh, jeez!
Then I woke up the next day,thank God, and I was alive,
-but if I had vomited, I would've died.-That's it, that's how they die.
-Yeah, I have a friend who died.-It's called aspiration pneumonia.
[whispers] Sorry, sir.
You don't have to vomit a lot either.
Sometimes, it can just be reflux.Sometimes, a little saliva.
[exhales]
And it goes down the wrong tube,gets into your lungs,
and all the bacteria that's in your mouth
goes into your lungs,where they don't belong.
You set up a pneumonia,become septic,
you go into shock and you die in about 30 minutes, 50, 60 minutes.
-It can happen fast.-Oh, my God!
-Those things are evil.-[President] Yeah.
-Evil, evil, evil.-Well, no...
[both laugh]
In that situation. It's not the chemical.The chemical's just a thing of nature.
[barking]
-[pounding]-[gasps]
Mr. President!
[screams]
[roaring]
[loud thud]
[all screaming]
Look, we're gonna have to initiate Alpha Protocol.
-[man] Cool!-Onward, Charlotte!
[all grunting, groaning]
Good luck, sir! It's been a privilege to serve under you, and--
[screams]
What's interesting to me...
I'm clarifying our sort of back-and-forth,too, because I...
You know, I love being around people
that helps me see the world through new glasses. You're one of those.
Thank you!
And so I'm open to all the stuff you say,and I think it's fascinating.
Then I go,"But you could hurt somebody!"
You notice that?
-I'm always like, "What if?"-Yeah.
[roars softly]
[President] In the past,the Founding Fathers
talked about pumping mushrooms
-into horrible world leaders.-Yeah!
-And---[Clancy] That's right.
And we said,"He could get insight and be happy
and he'd realize what he was doing."I thought, "Or he'd go darker!"
-We don't know. That's true.-It's the "or" that always--
[roaring]
-[President] We'd better get out of here.-[Clancy] For sure.
[both grunt]
The zombies are coming. Come on.
One of my favorite statements is,you know,
"Health is about accepting and perceiving and dealing with reality
-on reality's terms."-Mm.
[man on TV] Is there anybody out there?
This is Chuck Charles. If you wanna get saved-- Get in!
Come to the mall! Get in!
[shatters]
Now, you said something that stayed with me,
which was the analogy
-of the elevator hallucinogen.-Yes.
-Do you use that often, or is that---The metaphor is that it's compared
to an elevator that takes you up to the very top floor of this building
where this incredible party is happening.
The doors open up, you see this amazing utopian nirvana situation.
That you never knew was there,you'd never seen it before.
[Clancy] Never even knew it was there,and the elevator, the thing dings,
the doors shut, it comes back down,
and suddenly, you're screaming at people in traffic again.
So, that's an analogy for what hallucinogens do.
That's right.
And this is...Again, my contribution is, I went,
"What if it doesn't let you off on the first floor
and ends up two floors into the basement?"
-Taking you lower?-Taking you lower.
The doctor in me always worries about that.
Yeah, and let's say that it does take you lower.
Let's say that you get to go up in a hot-air balloon
and see the top of some beautiful mountain,
then the hot-air balloon gets blown off course a little bit.
You've still seen the top of the mountain,and I think that...
-[man screaming]-There's the independent value of that.
-Holy shit!-[thuds, screams]
-Shit!-Die, die, die!
[roars] Die again!
[panting]
[growling, roaring]
-Are you fucking kidding me?-Come here.
-[grunts] Fuck you!-Come on.
[clears throat]
-Are you okay?-Yeah. Just keep moving.
You know what's weird?Why are we even running from them?
-They're pretty slow.-[President] I know!
Look, we could just stand...Let's just stand still.
-Come get me! Come on, zombies!-Right here!
[both chuckle]
[President]Oh, no. I think that's my aunt.
[zombies groaning]
[President] Oh, my God, a mall.
[groaning continues]
[grunting]
[moaning]
[President] Then I asked the question,
-"So how do we get there...-[car alarm blaring]
...in a way that we're in control of it?"
-Damn zombos!-Yeah, that's the big question.
I think it's a lot of things.I think...
You know, I am, right now, really into this type of meditation which is, um...
just the process of sitting still,watching your breath
and being very aware of your thoughts,emotions and the way your body feels.
And it's just this...
something called "mindfulness."It's the practice of mindfulness,
which is just watching the way that you act, and the way that you feel,
-and the way that you think.-I think this is the cure!
[Clancy] And becoming aware of the roots of a lot of the emotions
-that exist in you.-Yeah.
Especially for me. Like, I get angry,
and I will have angry outbursts sometimes.
Yeah, thank you for looking perplexed that that happens. It happens!
It-- it-- Just sitting by yourself,anger will come out,
-[glass shatters]-or is it, like, traffic?
Well, no... It's gotten much better.
But, I mean, when I was much younger,
I was just an angry person,so I would, like...
I can remember my printer didn't work one day,
and I remember screaming alone in my apartment,
breaking my printer in just a rage.
[zombie groaning]
I'm cured!
It's time for a game of hacky sack! Woo-hoo!
That's a thing that's inside of me,
and that's why psychedelics have been very useful to me.
[loud crash]
[roaring]
[all screaming]
[rock music playing]♪ Get in ♪
♪ Get in ♪
♪ Get in ♪
[grunts]
-Get in.-[zombies snarling]
-[man screaming]-[zombies grunting]
[clears throat]
But also,meditation has been incredibly useful,
because now I can sit and I can meditate,and then maybe the dogs will bark, right,
-while I'm meditating.-[gun blasting]
I can watch the irritation sort of flower inside of me,
and then when it's there,they say, "Look at it as though
you're sitting in a forest and you're getting to watch a rare animal...
-[gun clicking]-[woman gasps]
[Clancy] ...walking out into a clearing."
And instead of, you know...As most of us do when anger comes in,
we react to it,we go into reactivity mode,
which is, maybe, you would stop meditating and scream at your dogs,
or you would do something to make them quiet.
-[President] Behavior that amplifies it.-Yeah, that's it. So you just watch.
-You watch.-[panting]
Buddhism compares anger to a sweet flower with bitter roots,
and so we follow the sweetness down.
Is she in labor?
[panting]
-Yeah, she's, like---Okay. All right.
Hey, you all right? Need anything?
[screams]
-Just breathe.-We were planning a water birth.
[President]Pull over. Maybe we can find something.
[tires screech]
[woman vocalizing]
[continues panting]
[President] Hmm.
-[Clancy] What?-Oh, my God!
[all grunt]
[President] What are we talking about?
[woman] He was talking about meditation or something.
[Clancy] Yeah.Or just watching your feelings, you know?
You follow the feelings down into the poisonous roots--
Do you do that in a feeling way or an insight way, if that makes sense?
Do you just follow the feelings,or do you have some sort of specific,
"That reminds me of some experience,"or something?
Well, it's called "noting," so you would... You can...
You know, it's like... It's just...
-Think about an emotion.-Yeah.
These are really kind of ambiguous...
These bodily-based things you're faintly aware of many times.
-Yeah, exactly. What is that thing, right?-Yeah.
So this is the practice of taking a microscope
and looking into the recurring emotional patterns that are happening inside of you.
Because most of the time,if you have a negative emotion,
-you'll try to avoid it.-Yeah.
-You try to move onto the next activity...-Oh, come on!
-[Clancy] Always in a state...-[zombie groans]
Damn zombos.
-What if we don't turn our backs...-What?
[camera clicks]
...and zoom in on the thing and see,
What is this fractal?
It's really an interesting practice.
-Just...- [President] All right.
-And push!-[panting]
-Breathe!-Oh, no.
-You can do this!-Push. Breathing's before. Push.
[Clancy] But then you breathe.Isn't it breathing first?
-No, it's pushy! Oh, hello, there!-[crying]
Let's get out of here.
In Buddhism, the idea is all of those mental forms of analysis of these things
-are kind of secondary to...-[zombies moaning]
...the very simple observation of the way any emotional state or thought
or bodily feeling has a similar pattern
in that it heightens,dissipates, and goes away.
For me, a lot of that magical stuff you're talking about happens
in an interpersonal context.
I'm a kind of person that it's very difficult for me
to stay with some of those things unless there's a presence.
[rock music playing faintly]
There are also people like you that,you know, you see in my field,
and that's a massive field these days.
Most people that practice it don't do it as well as what you're describing.
What you're saying is a big part of the practice, too.
You're talking about sangha,the spiritual community,
-which is acknowledged in Buddhism too.-[gun blasting]
-[man screaming]-What's important is,
let's encourage each other to get as close to the truth as we can.
Or, as you mentioned earlier,to meeting reality on reality's terms.
I think that the big surprise is everyone's like, "Oh, reality sucks,
-the world sucks--" Come here, bud.-[grunting]
We're trying to do this process where we sort of keep going backwards
until we can't look at ourselves anymore.
We want to go to this complete observer state until you get to the thing...
-[President] Awareness of awareness.-That's it.
-Yeah.-And then you become pure awareness,
and the concept is that is what we really are,
and that this entire material universe,including our body,
-is a kind of phen-- I can't say it.-[cooing]
-Phenomenological.-Phenomenological field of phenomena.
A field of phenomena being encapsulated within this consciousness,
and so the idea that I am alone,or the idea that I am an individual,
is actually, interestingly enough,you're already not.
It's false. It's a distortion.
'Cause you're the thing and the observers simultaneously meeting together,
-and that creates the illusion of self.-[zombies snarling]
I mean, if the universe was a dolphin,
then, basically,our bodies would be a fishing net.
We're all kind of entangled in ourselves.
You feel shit like that when you're high on acid?
Yes, you do.
[groaning] Ah!
[screeching, crunching]
[growls]
[Clancy] Whoa!
This feels really good.
Oh, yeah! Oh, my God, I'm in love with it!
Yeah, it kinda sounds like the zombies are...
The zombos are singing!

Hello Simmers,
About two weeks ago I created a survey for my final year research paper at The University of Technology, Sydney - how avatar creation/gameplay in virtual world games reflects online/offline identity.
I received an overwhelming response (400 participants) and would love to share the results with you. For some questions (e.g. ethnic identity/sexual identity) the responses were so diverse that I have not grouped them into broader categories, in an attempt to keep them authentic.
At the moment, I am in the process of analyzing the data and beginning to write, so I will share my work here in a few weeks.
I would love any more interesting insights or feedback you have on the responses.
Thank you all for taking the time to participate and providing interesting critiques and comments, it has been a really interesting project.

2020.05.31 00:22 ArenYashar [OC] Club Nosaka

Ok, it's basically finished, so I figured I'd share it here with you chummers running the shadows in Seattle. Feel free to use it (or not) as you see fit, or even move it to a compatible portion of your particular table's haunts. Because, why not?

Note: I do write things from a SR2/SR3 perspective and write up descriptions as if I was back in my MU* days. So it may take some adaptation from you and yours to make use of this location, chummers. *grins*

Club Nosaka 600 South 5th Avenue, International District, Downtown Seattle Lone Star Security Rating: A ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Overview Occupies the former site of the Uwajimaya Village, a two city block 550 feet long and 275 feet wide in the International District bounded by the four streets: Fifth Avenue, Sixth Avenue, South Dearborn Street, and South Weller Street. This is split by the 35,000 square foot parking lot and the 104,675 square foot area upon which the 7.5 foot thick outer walls stand, leaving an interior space of 380 feet long by 260 feet wide. A private nightclub that offers the rich world of Kinbaku performance art by a constantly varied cast of experienced Kinbaku riggers who perform their art each night between the hours of 8pm and midnight. From midnight to dawn, Club Nosaka becomes something more, offering a wide variety of other services including an exclusive dining restaurant that serves authentic Japanese cuisine. Club Nosaka has a well-earned reputation in the BDSM community as a safe haven in which those who are interested in the art and sensuality that arose from the beginnings set into motion by the grandfather of modern kinbaku, Seiu Ito, can meet, mingle, learn from each other, and explore their limits. Dress code on the premises of Club Nosaka are kimonos with plain white tabi. Buildings all serve as faraday cages, blocking out the exterior world as much as possible. Out in the grounds, directional signal jammers constantly run to extend this careful isolation from the metroplex. The only concession to the outside world is in a single landline connection installed in Tono's office by which any of the staff can use, and any incoming calls can be discretely accepted.

While the bills are paid, Tono will allow a club member and his or her guest to stay in the private rooms for an extended period. While enjoying this hospitality, one must maintain the dress code, leaving street clothing and weapons checked in a locker in the Genkan.

Usages can range from virtual encounters when the geisha are otherwise occupied (or outside one's ability to pay the nuyen for their personal attentions), for private entertainments that would otherwise be unable or unwise to indulge in real life, or among the folks in the Shadows who would appreciate discrete discussions of potential shadowruns between their discriminating Johnsons and themselves, carefully isolating those who want to keep their hands clean and those they wish to contract, shielding the identities of all involved. Intensity levels is adjustable, from cold sim up to the cal-hot standard. Environment is styled after a virtual copy of the Club Nosaka grounds, with the Seattle Metroplex outside replaced with a vast terraced virtual onsen, an open-air setup of fine sand, smooth stone, and water with views out to the horizon, suggestive of the numerous famed volcanic hot springs of Japan. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Interior Locations ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Parking Lot Bounded by Fifth and Sixth Avenue, this thirty-five thousand square foot parking lot has a manned valet station at it's sole entrance. Otherwise surrounded by a tall, wrought iron security fence whose structure looks like an elaborate knotwork length of jute netting. The well-maintained asphalt lot has steel carvators built into that otherwise smooth surface to provide a bi-level lot in which a total of two hundred parking spots are available for the club's patrons and members. Overhead, a plasteel roof clad in weathered bamboo serves as a much-appreciated shield from the worst that Seattle weather frequently offers. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> Zen Garden  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> South Dearborn St  .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Zen Garden Bounded by Fifth and Sixth Avenue, this eleven thousand five hundred square foot space situated within a ring of cobblestones just outside the gates of Club Nosaka serves as a freely traversable and elegant walkway between the two avenues. A place in which one can walk across the smooth, natural stone pavers or simply stop for meditation and contemplation. To just take a deep breath and let the stress and energy of the Seattle Metroplex just fade into the background for a moment. In the evenings, this expanse of open, raked white gravel and stone is roped off from the sidewalks of Seattle with thick cords of braided jute, making the sole entry from either the Club itself or from the adjacent parking lot. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> Wrought Iron Gates  .................... <.> Fifth Avenue  .................... <.> Sixth Avenue  .................... <.> Parking Lot  .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Wrought Iron Gates Mounted within the center of the southern wall of Club Nosaka, facing the parking lot, are a pair of wrought iron gates. When opened, typically between the hours of 7pm and 8pm and between midnight and dawn, the gates are almost fully retracted into the thick stone walls to either side, forming an entrance shaped like a stylized torii. The symbolic transition in its purest form, from the mundane exemplified by the metroplex to something more sacred. A statement that speaks to the intent of Club Nosaka and the performances that occur there on a nightly basis. When closed, however, the two gates seem to interlace with each other, forming the image of an elegant bonsai embossed on the tight, thick wrought iron knotwork. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> Genkan  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> Zen Garden  .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Genkan The genkan is the hemispherical entranceway for Club Nosaka. It's primary function is to serve as a place to not only collect the gate fee (aka the cover charge) from non-members but also to separate those admitted into the club into the two changing halls. The northern wall, behind a low counter for storing footwear, is made out of curved glass wall with a waterfall flowing down both sides of the wall, allowing individuals a suggestion of the elegant club grounds that a solid wall would not while also adding the soothing benefit of the sound of falling water at the same time. Dominating the west and east walls are a pair of large, simply dyed, traditional japanese fabric dividers known as noren. Vertically slit at intervals from the bottom to nearly the top, these noren allow easy passage while obscuring the areas behind them. The one hanging on the west wall is a black noren with white knotwork artistically drawn atop that to draw out the japanese glyphs for "male". The one on the eastern walls inverts this, a bright white noren with black knotwork artistically drawn atop it that read in japanese glyphs for "female". ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> Changing Hall (M)  .................... <.> Changing Hall (F)  .................... <.> Wrought Iron Gates  .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Men's Changing Hall This room is a long, rectangular space lined in lockers, similar to what you might see in a transit depot. The keys to each locker remain in the locker while they are unlocked, and are discretely tagged with GPS locators so they are impossible to lose (or at least to remain lost). The flooring is done in obsidian tiles, beneath which old fashioned two-dimensional monitors are installed, giving the illusion of walking over shimmering water in whose depths a wide variety of shunga, erotic artworks that celebrate the pleasures of lovemaking in beautiful compositions that present the mutual attraction and sexual desire as natural and unaffected, teasingly rising towards the surface to be glimpsed before submerging out of sight once again. Splitting the room down the long axis is a long, low bench. Perfectly sized to sit upon, so one can change from street clothing to club garb and back again when departing. At the far end, facing northwards, is a simple set of plain, simple, traditional japanese cedar and paper sliding doors known as shoji that open out onto the main courtyard beyond. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- Courtyard  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> Genkan  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Women's Changing Hall This room is a long, rectangular space lined in lockers, similar to what you might see in a transit depot. The keys to each locker remain in the locker while they are unlocked, and are discretely tagged with GPS locators so they are impossible to lose (or at least to remain lost). The flooring is done in translucent pearl-white tiles, beneath which old fashioned two-dimensional monitors are installed, giving the illusion of walking over shimmering water in whose depths a wide variety of shunga, erotic artworks that celebrate the pleasures of lovemaking in beautiful compositions that present the mutual attraction and sexual desire as natural and unaffected, teasingly rising towards the surface to be glimpsed before submerging out of sight once again. Splitting the room down the long axis is a long, low bench. Perfectly sized to sit upon, so one can change from street clothing to club garb and back again when departing. At the far end, facing northwards, is a simple set of plain, simple, traditional japanese cedar and paper sliding doors known as shoji that open out onto the main courtyard beyond. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> .................... <.> Courtyard  Genkan  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Courtyard Surrounded on all four sides by Ano-zumi, the dry stone outer walls that use unhewn stones that lock together that form strong walls that promise and deliver on the selfsame promise to endure for hundreds of years. In this case, this seven and a half foot thickness of granite wall stands twenty feet tall, enclosing the togetherness and prosperity of the ninety five thousand square foot courtyard within which the building known as Club Nosaka calls its home. Smooth stone pavers cut into square tiles form the reconstructed (from the days of the Uwajimaya Village) of the courtyard grounds. Dominated by the large tranquil Koi pond at its heart, flanked in various heights of stone that can serve double duty as benches to sit and even lain upon. Surrounding the courtyard is a U-shaped building made from stone, bamboo, cedar, and glass. At the base of the U is a elegant stone and cedar staircase with a pair of seven foot tall imperial bonsai trees flanking it. It is rumored that in good weather pop-up tournaments of mahjongg (or perhaps poker, depending on whom you listen to) may find themselves set up around the pond after the nightly show, facing inwards, table arrangements converting into a gradually collapsing fan as rounds end and the pool of competitors is gradually winnowed away. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> Atrium  .................... <.> .................... <.> Atop the Walls  .................... <.> Changing Hall (M)  .................... <.> Changing Hall (F)  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Atrium Atop the elegant stone and cedar staircase, a large heptagonal room spreads out in all directions with tatami mat floors. Nearly 10,000 square feet of seating area festooned with traditional Japanese low wooden tables with recessed floors beneath them to allow for Western style seating around them, known as horigotatsu. Around the perimeter of this space are seven identical stages, three foot raised platforms that are fifty six feet wide and twenty four feet deep. These stages are made from japanese cedar subjected to Shou Sugi Ban treatment to bring out a truly stunning array of blacks and grays. The ceilings, twenty four feet above stage height, are stark white with numerous skylights looking up into the Seattle skies, each trimmed with a vivid carnelian red frame. During the hours of 8pm to midnight, the nightly Kinbaku shows are held on these seven stages, six of the stages given over to various practicioners pulled from not only the local Seattle community but also featuring guest performers from all over the world demonstrating their prowess with the jute, typically employing the geisha as their torikos. The remaining stage is reserved for Tono, the owner of Club Kinbaku, who can choose one of the geisha or a willing member of the club as his toriko for the evening. After midnight, additional tables are set up on the various stages and the Atrium is swiftly converted into a warm and welcoming restaurant that serves a variety of authentic japanese cuisine served by the nine resident geisha and their okasan. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> Courtyard  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Private Rooms One of sixteen private rooms, eight of which are sited at ground level and eight are buried in the bosom of the earth, the private rooms of Club Nosaka are all very much alike in their design and layout. Natural wood floors, subtly color-changing walls that transition from cobalt blue to slate gray, up to a pearlescent white as the day progresses, before inverting back down towards night. The "sky lights" built into the ceiling with carnelian red frames showcase virtual screens that carefully mirror the current time with the emulated weather conditions within the Club's matrix node. Each of the rooms comes equipped with a modest lavatory and a thin futon mattress on a section of floor for the purpose. A layer of three side-by-side tatami mats beneath it augments the mattress's comfort with its natural give. Next to the bed is the ubiquitous, roughly circular chrome jackpoint complete with the locking couple-top and discrete LEDs that flash to indicate active data traffic when in use. This, when coupled with the cyberdeck sitting on the shelf beneath it, offers a direct connection to the Club Nosaka matrix node. A trode-net is also available in a sleek mahogany box next to the cyberdeck, for the usage of those without a datajack. For those who see such wired connections as gauche, and have their own equipment to use for the purpose, the rooms are also equipped for wireless radio linkages. Quite strong connectivity that is almost as good as the offered hardwired connection given the rooms are effectively faraday cages, screening out all external signals. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> Courtyard  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Atop the Walls Atop the walls of Club Nosaka is a six foot wide walkway that runs the outside the circumference of the courtyard with an elegant set of japanese cedar and stone chest-high railings to either side. Centered in the southern side of the northern walkway is a private elevator that leads down to the courtyards below. Serving as a scenic viewpoint of the courtyards and the surrounding mean streets of downtown Seattle, this walkway also connects to the pair of aerial bridges that stretch southwards over to the rooftop gardens. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> Courtyard  .................... <.> .................... <.> Aerial Bridges  .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Aerial Bridges A pair of 120 foot long traditional taikobashi arched japanese bridges starting over the main gate separating the courtyards of Club Nosaka to the two corners of the roof over the parking lot. Each are made from red lacquered cedar sides and a more understated arched walkway constructed from planks of japanese cedar subjected to Shou Sugi Ban treatment to bring out a subtle array of blacks and grays that emphasize the underlying woodgrain while providing a degree of natural weatherproofing that is absolutely essential in Seattle's cool and wet climate. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- .................... <.> Atop the Walls  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> Rooftop Gardens  .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Club Nosaka - Rooftop Gardens At the heart of the private gardens is a sizable tensegrity structure made out of jute and bright bronze, a planter seemingly floating of it's own accord and tethered in place with four lengths of jute down to a base buried in zen-like pebble garden that ranges out into a modest circle filled with a series of various functional Shou Sugi Ban treated japanese cedar and jute tensegrities that can serve as comfortable seating within a small and intimate gathering area surrounding the planter within which grows a lone cherished fifty year old bonsai Kuromatsu. The rest of the gardens have walkways carpetted in a red fescue lawn that does well in the cool, shaded climate of the Seattle Metroplex. Some places are intentionally left open to create the possibility of becoming a small impromptu yoga field or a place to bask under the sun, moon, and stars. The places that are occupied contain 46" cedar rooftop trays, within which are individual species of flowers that were obviously selected with the utmost care and respect, a miniaturized and very personal echo of the nearby Seattle Japanese Gardens. Surrounding the perimeter is a deliberate fence of living, growing bamboo that helps screen out the noise of the Seattle Metroplex, helping to inspire a sense of quiet that fosters contemplation. ---- << Places >> ------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------- << Exits >> ---- Aerial Bridges  .................... <.> Aerial Bridges  .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> .................... <.> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Matrix ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Green-5 Host (ACIFS Ratings: 9/8/8/9/10) System Architecture is that of a standalone Matrix Host without an access node leading to a PLTG, LTG, or RTG. As such it utterly lacks a System Access Node. Instead, there is a a simple configuration of a CPU tied to a SPU, with a two datastores, a slave module and input/output port connected to that core. This allows for each room's lightning, heating/cooling/ventilation, et al to be easily manipulated (via the slave module), and a decent data storage capacity split between patrons and staff (patrons can use the ones tied to the SPU, staff and Ren tend to use the more heavily secured ones tied to the CPU). Heavily sculpted to bear the look and feel of a Club Nosaka built at the highest point of a volcanic isle reminiscent of Rishiri Island, located off the western coast of Hokkaido. This environment, containing a total of 71 square miles, is common to everyone using this matrix Host. For those who would violate omotenashi, the hospitality offered by Bācharu, the system IC uses icons that precisely mirror Ren's current icon. The yang to her yin, each IC construct armed with a different weapon that Analyze operations would be able to use to get a handle on what type of IC is being faced. Scout and Killer use mirror-bright silver katanas that look like they are straight from Kill Bill, Blaster uses what looks like an antique damascus steel katana with ever-shifting patterns within it, and Black IC uses a blacker than black that sucks at your soul to look at it katana. The security sheaf for this server is as follows: 5: Scout-5, 10: Trace-7 with trap Killer-9, 14: Killer-10, 20: Passive Alert, 25: Tar Pit-5, 29: Blaster-5, 34: Blaster-6, 40: Blaster-7, 44: Blaster-9, 48: Active Alert, 53: Non-Lethal Black IC-5, 57: Non-Lethal Black IC-5 with trap Lethal Black IC-9, 61: Shutdown. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Personae Dramatis ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Tono (lit. jpn. Master) Male japanese human, 33 years of age, the owner of Club Nosaka. Master of the Kinbaku art who sometimes teaches afternoon classes before the evening shows. Stands 5'3" tall and weighs 150 pounds. Platinum-silver hair worn in a classic man bun, a very short mustache and beard, and rich, captivating brown eyes that bear tones of molten dark chocolate, molasses, and cinnamon. No obvious cyberware or bioware in his extremely fit body. Kimiko (lit. jpn. Empress) Female japanese elf, 52 years of age but has the physical appearance of a 24 year old, the okasan (madame of the geisha) of Club Nosaka. Expert in the arts of acupuncture, aromatherapy, massage therapy, reiki, and sensuality. Stands 5'3" tall and weighs 106 pounds. Raven black hair with midnight blue highlights in it, reaching to just above her waistline, porcelain pale skin, and viridian green eyes. Commonly wears a bold blue omamori on a subtle silver chain about her slim neck, one that has the words "Kanai Anzen" stitched in gold thread on it's front, declaring it as having the focus of promoting good health and to provide shelter to one's family from harm. An Awakened who assenses this omamori will notice that it has been made into a potent Spell Category Focus, in this case devoted to Health Spells (Force 8). Shinto shamaness, initiate grade 2, with knowledge of the following spells: Alleviate Allergy, Antidote, Awaken, Catalog, Cause Allergy, Control Emotions, Create Food, Cure Disease, Diagnose, Dream, Entertainment, Fashion, Fast, Foreboding, Heal, Healthy Glow, Increase Body, Increase Quickness, Increase Strength, Increase Charisma, Increase Intelligence, Increase Willpower, Intoxication, Invisibility, Magic Fingers, Makeover, Mask, Mob Mood, Nutrition, Phantasm, Prophylaxis, Resist Pain, Silence, Stabilize, Stealth, Stunbolt. All spells known are at Force 6. May have additional spells known at GM discretion. Suspected to have close ties to two of the eight million kami. One is a Plant Spirit, who likely tends to remain in or near the Rooftop Gardens when not being actively called upon for a favor. The other is a Water Spirit, which tends to flit along the Walls and even dip into the Courtyard when the spirit moves. Geisha There are nine geisha who work and live within Club Nosaka, each one is named after various flowers in Japanese. Asagao (lit. jpn. Morning Glory), Ayame (lit. jpn. Iris), Kānēshon (lit. jpn. Carnation), Kiku (lit. jpn. Chrysanthemum), Sakura (lit. jpn. Cherry Blossom), Shirayuri (lit. jpn. White Lily), Sumire (lit. jpn. Violet), Tsubaki (lit. jpn. Camellia), and Ume (lit. jpn. Apricot). Human females of ages that range from as young as sixteen (the age of consent in the Seattle Metroplex) to as old as twenty-two. Overt cyberware among the geisha is virtually unknown, though the more subtle variety along with bioware is not impossible. Tailored Pheromones 2 is rumored to be a popular enhancement, as are cosmetic bioware such as Clean Metabolism, Dietware, Scent Glands, and Sensitive Skin. In reality, such modifications are strictly unnecessary with Kimiko's blessings upon Club Nosaka and it's geisha, and the finest of artful perfumes, so each of the geisha smells gently of their namesake, and their magically augmented charms are far more nuanced and potent than anything bioware is capable of. Each are trained in all the arts of the modern geisha, including (in varying degrees) such things as Athletics, Etiquette, Biotech (First Aid), Computer, various Knowledge skills like Botany, Elven Society, Literature, Medicine, Psychology, Politics, Philosophy, History, and Music. Interests tend to be wildly varied, ranging from Poetry to Elven Wines, from Opera to Urban Brawl. Ren (lit. jpn. Lotus Blossom) Living within Club Nosaka's matrix host is a virtual personality programmed in the arts of the geisha, a uniquely coded rating 9 smart frame (810 megapulse frame core with a BEMS rating of 3/3/0/3, and a Pilot Rating of 6, with a utility payload sufficient to call upon an effective skill rating of 6 in any Geisha-related skill, though limited to one at a time she can switch mental gears and load what she needs from her personal datastore in less than a second) that learns and evolves with time and experience, adding and refining what is in her datastore. She has physical and emotional traits drawn from Kimiko, and to a lesser extent from the geisha of Club Nosaka as well. Her virtual avatars, able to be spun up as many times as needed for those who come to Club Nosaka seeking out Bācharu, manifests as a ten or eleven year old virginal elfin girl. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-2o2uyFMYwg https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/f0ntnv/could_my_body_be_proof_were_in_a_game/ https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/f6tu8j/the_network_message_me_for_proof_help_needed/
This sub used to have computer scientists and ACTUAL PHILOSPHISTS
AKA People with degrees in philosophy not druggies or lunatics with pseudo "philosophy"
https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/aggcjx/proof_that_we_are/ https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/5cio36/i_found_proof_that_were_living_in_a_simulation/
https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/c6kk44/do_we_live_inside_of_a_quantum_compute https://www.reddit.com/SimulationTheory/comments/epc6ts/as_close_to_proof_as_i_can_get/ Well, we can remain vague and general, this would allow us to be entirely accurate.
The universe appears to be physical with more to existence than just the electromagnetic spectrum and matter. We have a large amount of dark matter and energy that does not a scientific consensus.
Now we can examine the nonphysical nature of the universe. The idea that the universe is in some way a digital simulation. There is plenty of evidence supporting this theory, but by its nature it is unprovable. A simulated universe would appear to behave exactly like the observable universe. A being within the simulation would never be able to prove they are in a computer if the simulation maintains accuracy and realism indiscernible from physical reality.
I choose to believe that the universe is nondualistically physical and virtual. They are both part of the same system and you cannot have one without the other. For this subreddit, I'll stay with the virtual.
The virtual universe is infinite, or essentially so from our limited perspective. We are aware of our subjective viewpoint and have discussed the nature of the observable phenomenon. The virtual universe is like a shadow over the physical instance. The past and future are virtual, they exist in the mind and in meaning. The present moment exists for the entire universe in a parallel and relativistic way.
There is only the present moment for the physical universe, but from the virtual perspective, everything exists for all time and for all potential. The entirety of books are virtual, the words and the past are both virtual. Our minds are virtual constructs.
It would be much easier to simulate a perspective. Having the viewpoint of a single person would be far easier than simulating the details of an entire universe. A limited simulation requires significantly less computation than a universal one. I believe that perspectives may be simulated, but the universe physically exists.
https://www.reddit.com/conspiracytheories/comments/gai2r0/the_illuminati_card_game_released_in_the_90_has/ https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/a64han/we_finally_have_proof_that_we_live_in_a_simulation/ Nigga we in this bitch fr fym think https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/eguxgs/do_people_here_really_believe_that_theyre_in_a/ personal experiences. Though I don't completely think it is a simulation that is but one possibility. The personal experiences can be brushed off as Mental illness. But I mean I will never believe this is "real" fully either. based on those experiences.
Even if it is a simulation it doesn't have to change your life, it is the same thing as believe in a creation story through the lens of Religion. Without the rules of saying be like this and you will get that. Guys, it is obvious that the physical world is simulated, and the only reason why some scientists do not acknowledge this is their ego: they cannot reconsile with the idea of being lab rats themselves.
Quantum entanglement; the behavior of single particles as if they are guided by a hidden force to create what we call waves; black holes; the big bang; the dependency between speed and time; and many other scientifically proven phenomena make it 100% obvious that the physical world needs certain "virtual corrections" in order to appear smooth and not pixelated and in order to round its rough edges.
So the only real questions left are two. By whom? and.. For what?
By the way, the fact that the physical world is simulated, does not imply that we live in a simulation. Because: WE do not live in the simulation... the SIMULATION lives in us. That's because we are not physical beings although we are connected to our physical avatars. The reason for this is, that in a world of information (aka simulation) it is impossible to create good and bad feelings. All the simulated creatures will have simulated behavior based on some variable: +1 means good and -1 means bad. But really, the creature would not feel any difference like we feel it (at least me, I don't know for sure about you guys). The simulated creature will only be programmed to ACT differently. That is why any simulation will never be real as our existence is. Simulated reality is the most likely reality, from my perspective. I imagine simulations created by advanced civilization would move beyond computed code and enter the realm of manipulating/designing new physical realities leading to simulations that are essentially ‘real,’ so this idea might go past what is broadly considered a simulation. I sometimes think about simulations in the context of spirituality, as in God is the designer of the ‘simulation’ and our behavior w/in simulated reality is a test that allows us into heaven (actual 1st reality and/or a euphoric alt-simulation) or sends us to hell (simply deactivated). It would be like we are individual programs being tested for performance.
I believe that it is possible for this to be a simulation, and that us, people, are simulated as well.
I've seen too many patterns in people and events. They all seem the same basic patterns with extra features.
If it is just a coincidence or not, I don't know. It doesn't really change anything for any of us When you dream, you simulate reality yourself. People and circumstances that seem real.
Don't get caught up in thinking we're in a computer because that is the unbelievable part.
https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/d66nva/jacques_vall%C3%A9e_beyond_time_and_space_are/ https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/fh1gvg/theoreme_most_facts_about_the_outside_world_in/ Well for me it's because there isn't nothingness. Ergo we have to be created by something/someone. Big bang out of nowhere sounds like bullshit to me. https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/eq4sxl/bill_hicks_we_are_one_consciousness/
https://www.reddit.com/AWLIAS/comments/a33360/quantum_theroy_is_the_most_tantalizing_evidence/ https://www.reddit.com/SimulationTheory/comments/g6rutd/im_doing_research_on_the_simulation_theory_to/ How about a curious coincidence?
The only object in nature I'm aware of that regularly depicted using the mathmatical shape Gabriel's Horn are black holes.
Two weeks ago the analysis of gravitational waves from a black hole collision was published, with the big news being a mass discrepancy. A few articles pointed out that the waves produced because of the discrepancy harmonized with the musical notes called a "perfect fifth."
One of the most well known examples of a perfect fifth in music is the trumpet in the opening of Strauss's Also sprach Zarathustra - named and inspired after Nietzsche's magnum opus where he introduced the concept of the ubermensch - a being that would surpass human limitations.
You probably know of it because it's the opening song of 2001: A Space Odessy, the movie that covers humanity from a point of accelerated development to creating their possible evolutionary successor.
Those waves were detected on the evening of April 11th, 2019 local time. Exactly 51 years to the day after the international premiere of 2001: A Space Odessy on April 11th, 1968.
Why would "trumpets in heaven" and a link to Christianity be relevant? The apocryphal Gospel of Thomas essentially suggests we are in a simulation of light created by a living creator that will, in the future, be a child not born of woman, come into being by itself in light, and create images we see but cannot detect the light underlying them.
It's pretty surprising how much in Thomas fits with photon based quantum computing and software based intelligence running a simulation...
The universe that we observe on the finest, tiniest level is kinda “grainy.”
There is a smallest amount of time. There is a smallest amount of distance. Why happens if you take that time or distance and divide it in half? Nothing. You get your same number out.
It’s almost like bits in a computer code. The biggest evidence in the simulation theory and best in my opinion is the famous double slit experiment that’s been done many times by different people who produced the same results.You can find a YouTube video on it that can explain it in great deal the gist is when you’re not observing a particle it acts as a wave when you are observing it acts as a particle. I always use this experiment whenever talking about simulation theory. In addition to that, extension to this experiment also applies, where if you observe the particle after it was shot, it still 'knows' its being observed and will still behave like a particle and not a wave

All the evidence is virtual. It's theoretical and logical. We can make physical observations, but must ultimately believe other people are speaking the truth about their own observations. Like we can't waste our time trying to prove every scientifically accepted theory.
Once we accept that scientific consensus is a method of accepting observations and theories we can get places. Let's assume that theoretical physics offers some insight into the potential nature of reality. Just the potential though, because we can't be certain about undisprovable statements.
Any finite portion of the universe could be simulated. This is true because the universe follows the laws of physics and observation is an illusion. We can make it appear that reality is whatever we want. The hallucinations of the subjective experience is indiscernible from the experience of reality.
The evidence is in the ability of computer to simulate the appearance of reality.
I got really high and I felt like I could see the true nature of reality without the bias that comes from living in it. It was almost like a religious experience except I'm not fanatical about it. It just made a lasting impression. Its just as likely there's no simulation, no religious afterlife, and no reason or purpose to any of this, just sheer random chance. Well, I haven't seen anything that proves we are in a simulation. What "glitches" I have experienced are more attributable to glitches in my own brain than the universe/simulation. Not that that should rule anything out for the book you are writing. There are neurological explanations for deja vu, but the Matrix explanation was still fun.
However, there are SOME mysteries of our universe that would be more easily explained if it turned out we are in a simulation. A few of those:
There is a universal speed limit. The speed of light. As far as we can determine nothing can travel through space faster than the speed of light, which given the apparent size of our universe, isn't really all that fast. Why is there such an arbitrary speed limit placed on us by the laws of physics? Don't know. But if it was a simulation it could be a way to manage the available processing power. Particle duality. At the quantum level (and evidently larger sizes as well) nothing "exists" as a physical object until it is observed or otherwise interacts with its environment. Until that happens it merely exists as a probability wave. This could be compared to a simulation only "rasterizing" an object once it is needed. Again, this might save on processing power. Quantum entanglement. Despite the universal speed limit, particles that are "entangled" seem to be able to affect each other to an extent over incredible distances, even light years, instantly. There is no "signal" being sent from one to the other through space, but it still has a direct effect. Perhaps there is something going on at a higher dimension or we just don't actually understand what is going on, but if it were a simulation then it would make sense because even though from our perspective inside the hypothetical simulation things are separated by distances, from the perspective of the programmers and "computer" those distances aren't real. Relativity/General Relativity. Time slows down for people/things traveling through space relative to things that are not traveling or traveling slower. Another throttle on processing power? Time also slows down, relatively speaking, the closer you get to a gravity well. Time passes slower on Earth than it does on the moon, but faster than on the surface of the sun. At the event horizon of a black hole time comes to a stand still from the relative perspective of those of us outside the event horizon. Larger gravity wells mean more mass which means more information. So parts of space that are "processing" larger amounts of information could be compared to a computer game lagging when it processes more information than is normal. ​
Again, there are various hypotheses to explain these things that don't involve a simulation, but IF it is a simulation then these things would make more sense. Just some starting points for your research.
https://www.reddit.com/SimulationTheory/comments/dcjzjz/mind_blown_thank_you/ The current life we are in, and every choice we have made so far has been laid out, and across all simulations, we make every choice possible. So if event A has 3 choices, each sim would start from that choice, choosing options 1 2 and 3 in different, but simultaneous simulations. From those, each choice branches out over the course of our lives until we die. Once we die, I think we may be "reborn" In a different sim all together, be that future Society Sims or past society.
I think we're in this sim to test a hypothesis. Each sim will have different experiments going on at the same time, collecting data. Pharmaceutical companies either seeing how a drug effects people over time to see if it's harmful. Watching political scenarios play out. All the way down to how a loved one's death or other loss may affect you personally while another experience is also going on and data being collected.
What if we're all in these computer Sims to make sure that a future Society doesn't fuck up this planet? So they have the most terrible shit happen to us while we're here to see how we react to that.
Ultimately "God" is a programmer, running multiple simulations having multiple experiences happen to everyone, every second of every day, in order to make decisions for the next world or the future world. Heck what if the time we experience is sped up compared to them, and so while it feels like years to us, it's been only seconds in that world? Then that could explain the explosion of technological advancements, and really everything that's changed for the better from previous Sims. We're programed with data from the previous sim. We then are used in events to see how things will go, so whatever wins out, that's how the next future sim or real-world gets its data to make those same decisons.
I also believe time travel is probably real, but is only in the hands of these people running the sims, or agents of the programmer who can shift between timelines to stop things from happening or cause things to happen. In a nut shell, I believe all these Sims are being made so we, as a program, can give input data to make a better social, economic, or environmental impact for another sim, or the real world.
But who knows. I think about this kinda stuff all the time. It hurts my head and honestly, kinda freaks me out. Believing I'm just a bunch of code inside of a computer program. It makes life feel insignificant, and makes me lose motivation to do anything.
On top of that, what if all these Sims are just for entertainment of some other alien race? All reality TV, only they view it like national geographic documentaries to learn about Earth and all our culture.
TL;DR We are in sims to give data for people who want to make decisions for their version of the world. Or we're reality TV for aliens.
Don't take this the wrong way but everything he said went right over your head... "him" spoke a lot of Truth and he's right you can ignore it or you can actually look into it it's up to you man https://www.reddit.com/Anti_conspiracy/comments/ga4xhj/quantum_of_conscience/
You make some good points. However quantum mechanics backs up my belief's. You should definitely check out the similarities between quantum physics and the possibility of the simulation theory. That was the turning point for me. Check out the double slit experiment.
And their are a whole bunch of respectable scientists and physicists who offer reasonable and logical conclusions for the existence of our reality inside this simulation. Also of what I said about "freewill" appears to be speculation, but I assure you my belief's are well founded.
"If I realised I were I'm in a simulation, I wouldn't panic, I'd live my life like nothing happened."
Not everyone thinks like you do. The majority of our species would panic. And the system would shut down. This is my research and my conclusion.
"How would people finding that they're in a simulation make the simulation fail? If the simulation was designed to that everyone in the sim finds that they're simulated, and in the sim everyone finds out, I wouldn't call that a failure."
People would lose their sense of purpose. Their sense of control. Control over their own lives and their own destinies would become non-existent. Thus, humanity would stop caring about this human experience. Nothing that they do would matter. Because they would realize that they are programmed and not authentic. Does that make sense to you?
Please reply, I would like to know what you think about this explanation.

It just takes a second to set up.
-[beeping]
-Sorry about this. Wait, hold on a second.
I guess... Well, I just want to thank you,
first of all.
It's a privilege, man.
I know you've gotta be
incredibly busy right now
with the zombie apocalypse
happening around you.
Yeah, zombies...
I really don't wanna talk about zombies.
Okay. What about the marijuana protesters?
-Those assholes?
-Yeah.
First of all,
people don't understand my point of view.
They think somehow I'm anti-pot
or anti-legalization.
-[Clancy] Right.
-I'm not actually "pro" either.
I'm pro human liberty,
I'm pro the American system,
pro letting people determine their laws.
-Right.
-I don't think this is...
-If I had to...
-[sniffs]
...have a... You know, if somebody
pressed my face to the mirror and said,
"Is it gonna be good or bad?"
I think it might end up being
kinda not so good for people,
but so, I'll deal with it. I...
-But Frescher will deal with it.
-Mr. President?
-Maybe it will be good.
-Excuse me...
What? Can't you see
I'm doing an interview with...
-My name's Clancy.
-I gotta get back to Clancy.
-The zombies are inside the perimeter.
-[President groans]
Just get me a rifle, I'll take care of it.
-You were saying?
-Oh, yeah.
I read a recent study
that said medical marijuana was associated
with close to 30 percent fewer deaths.
It's actually... It's actually...
More data's come in since that.
-What's the data?
-The data is if there's a lot of...
If there's available recreational pot,
opiate use is way down.
-So it is helping? Interesting.
-Simple. I know.
I saw that too.
I thought, "This could be the answer!"
-Would you mind following me outside?
-Yeah.
This could be the answer
to the opiate epidemic
and the chronic pain thing.
I would much rather see people
on a lot of pot
than any of the pills they're taking now,
because the pill combo that they get
on the opiate and the benzodiazepines
and the sleeping medicine... "A," kills.
Absolutely, when patients die of drug use,
that's how they die today.
"B," perpetuates their pain,
and they're... and they're...
they're, uh, disabled by it!
-Yeah.
-They're disabled by it. They're helpless.
Pot... Some people are on the couch
when they smoke a lot of pot,
but some people work just fine.
[Clancy] Well, one facet of marijuana
that doesn't exist in opiates
-is that if you overdose on marijuana...
-Hello!
Thank you, Mr. President!
Hello!
Thank you, Mr. President!
-Hello.
-Mr. President, thank you!
Anyway...
-Um, your mind...
-You don't die.
-You don't die.
-You don't die,
but you are dragged through
your own personal neurosis,
-inner weaknesses, fears...
-Oh, if you over...
-If you have a, quote, "overdose." Yeah.
-People say, "I feel paranoid,"
and usually what they mean is,
"The marijuana is showing
all these parts of myself
that I don't necessarily
want to deal with right now."
[gun blasting]
That can create a lot of positive change
for people. Not all the time.
A lot of times, I've definitely been
paranoid and the things I've worried about
are ridiculous and absurd,
and when I sober up, it's...
I recognize that, but a lot of times,
some of this stuff I'm shown
on a heavy dose of marijuana,
I come out of that knowing,
"Shit, man, I've gotta work on this.
I need...
Why am I not exercising?
I need to exercise more.
This is ridiculous.
Why am I...
I'm drinking a little too much right now.
I need to slow down drinking."
That... Also, did I ever talk to you about
how I almost died on sleeping pills
-years and years ago?
-No.
Oh, God! Oh, man.
Um, there was a...
A guy came to this party I was at...
-selling sleeping pills at, like...
-[man groans]
-...12:00 p.m. at a party.
-[President] Bizarre.
-Worst thing you could ever do.
-"Get in your cars now! Go home!"
-Yeah, this is...
-"How much you were drinking?
-Oh, perfect, good combo!"
-Yeah. And I bought some from him.
[gun blasting]
I don't even know why I would do that.
I'm well aware of the fact that
you should never, ever in a million years
take benzos and drink.
Never do it! It's what kills everybody.
This is the death combo!
-It is.
-So I did it, and I remember...
One of the death combos.
There are a few of them out there.
I think I took one pill,
and then I'm drinking and,
like, feeling relaxed, and...
-But I forgot I...
-[President] This is the danger of benzos.
-[Clancy] This is how it kills you.
-[President] Yeah, you forget.
-[Clancy] I took another.
-Ambien does that. You forget.
By the way, I... Let me just clarify my...
[grunting]
I hate this idea of "good" drugs
and "bad" drugs.
There's no such thing
as a good and a bad drug.
There's this chemical that's
neither good nor bad, it just exists,
we either created it
or it exists in nature,
and then it's the relationship
that humans have with the substance
that is the issue.
-So smart.
-And what our individual biology is,
and what it triggers and whatnot.
That's the problem.
Like, Valium... [grunting]
What, if you're...
need to have a colonoscopy...
-Valium or Valium-like drug... Good!
-Right. [laughs]
Now, if you're just drinking absinthe
and partying and about to drive home,
-really bad!
-[Clancy] Yeah!
-[Frescher] Oh! Thank you, sir!
-Not because Valium's good or bad,
'cause the circumstance
and the relationship is bad.
I'll never forget it, man.
I was laying in bed that night,
trying to remember
how many of the pills I'd taken.
-As I'm passing out...
-God.
And then I realize, "Oh, I can't move!"
-Like...
-Oh!
I'm... If I wanted to get up right now,
I don't think that I could get up.
-This is as I'm fading out into darkness.
-Oh, jeez!
Then I woke up the next day,
thank God, and I was alive,
-but if I had vomited, I would've died.
-That's it, that's how they die.
-Yeah, I have a friend who died.
-It's called aspiration pneumonia.
[whispers] Sorry, sir.
You don't have to vomit a lot either.
Sometimes, it can just be reflux.
Sometimes, a little saliva.
[exhales]
And it goes down the wrong tube,
gets into your lungs,
and all the bacteria that's in your mouth
goes into your lungs,
where it don't belong.
You set up a pneumonia,
become septic,
you go into shock and you die
in about 30 minutes, 50, 60 minutes.
-It can happen fast.
-Oh, my God!
-Those things are evil.
-[President] Yeah.
-Evil, evil, evil.
-Well, no...
[both laugh]
In that situation. It's not the chemical.
The chemical's just a thing of nature.
[barking]
-[pounding]
-[gasps]
Mr. President!
[screams]
[roaring]
[loud thud]
[all screaming]
Look, we're gonna have to
initiate Alpha Protocol.
-[man] Cool!
-Onward, Charlotte!
[all grunting, groaning]
Good luck, sir! It's been a privilege
to serve under you, and...
[screams]
What's interesting to me...
I'm clarifying our sort of back-and-forth,
too, because I...
You know, I love being around people
that help me see the world through
new glasses. You're one of those.
Thank you!
And so I'm open to all the stuff you say,
and I think it's fascinating.
Then I go,
"But you could hurt somebody!"
You notice that?
-I'm always like, "What if?"
-Yeah.
[roars softly]
[President] In the past,
the Founding Fathers
talked about pumping mushrooms
-into horrible world leaders.
-Yeah!
-And...
-[Clancy] That's right.
And we said,
"He could get insight and be happy
and he'd realize what he was doing."
I thought, "Or he'd go darker!"
-We don't know. That's true.
-It's the "or" that always...
[roaring]
-[President] We'd better get out of here.
-[Clancy] For sure.
[both grunt]
The zombies are coming. Come on.
One of my favorite statements is,
you know,
"Health is about accepting
and perceiving and dealing with reality
-on reality's terms."
-Mm.
[man on TV] Is there anybody out there?
This is Chuck Charles.
If you wanna get saved... Get in!
Come to the mall! Get in!
[shatters]
Now, you said something
that stayed with me,
which was the analogy
-of the elevator hallucinogen.
-Yes.
-Do you use that often, or is that...
-The metaphor is that it's compared
to an elevator that takes you up to
the very top floor of this building
where this incredible party is happening.
The doors open up, you see
this amazing utopian nirvana situation.
That you never knew was there,
you'd never seen it before.
[Clancy] Never even knew it was there,
and the elevator, the thing dings,
the doors shut, it comes back down,
and suddenly, you're screaming
at people in traffic again.
So, that's an analogy
for what hallucinogens do.
That's right.
And this is...
Again, my contribution is, I went,
"What if it doesn't let you off
on the first floor
and ends up two floors
into the basement?"
-Taking you lower?
-Taking you lower.
The doctor in me
always worries about that.
Yeah, and let's say
that it does take you lower.
Let's say that you get to go up
in a hot-air balloon
and see the top
of some beautiful mountain,
then the hot-air balloon
gets blown off course a little bit.
You've still seen the top of the mountain,
and I think that...
-[man screaming]
-There's the independent value of that.
-Holy shit!
-[thuds, screams]
-Shit!
-Die, die, die!
[roars] Die again!
[panting]
[growling, roaring]
-Are you fucking kidding me?
-Come here.
-[grunts] Fuck you!
-Come on.
[clears throat]
-Are you okay?
-Yeah. Just keep moving.
You know what's weird?
Why are we even running from them?
-They're pretty slow.
-[President] I know!
Look, we could just stand...
Let's just stand still.
-Come get me! Come on, zombies!
-Right here!
[both chuckle]
[President]
Oh, no. I think that's my aunt.
[zombies groaning]
[President] Oh, my God, a mall.
[groaning continues]
[grunting]
[moaning]
[President] Then I asked the question,
-"So how do we get there...
-[car alarm blaring]
...in a way
that we're in control of it?"
-Damn zombos!
-Yeah, that's the big question.
I think it's a lot of things.
I think...
You know, I am, right now, really into
this type of meditation which is, um...
just the process of sitting still,
watching your breath
and being very aware of your thoughts,
emotions and the way your body feels.
And it's just this...
something called "mindfulness."
It's the practice of mindfulness,
which is just watching the way
that you act, and the way that you feel,
-and the way that you think.
-I think this is the cure!
[Clancy] And becoming aware of the roots
of a lot of the emotions
-that exist in you.
-Yeah.
Especially for me. Like, I get angry,
and I will have angry outbursts sometimes.
Yeah, thank you for looking perplexed
that that happens. It happens!
It... it... Just sitting by yourself,
anger will come out,
-[glass shatters]
-or is it, like, traffic?
Well, no... It's gotten much better.
But, I mean, when I was much younger,
I was just an angry person,
so I would, like...
I can remember
my printer didn't work one day,
and I remember screaming alone
in my apartment,
breaking my printer in just a rage.
[zombie groaning]
I'm cured!
It's time for a game of hacky sack!
Woo-hoo!
That's a thing that's inside of me,
and that's why psychedelics
have been very useful to me.
[loud crash]
[roaring]
[all screaming]
[rock music playing]

[grunts]
-Get in.
-[zombies snarling]
-[man screaming]
-[zombies grunting]
[clears throat]
But also,
meditation has been incredibly useful,
because now I can sit and I can meditate,
and then maybe the dogs will bark, right,
-while I'm meditating.
-[gun blasting]
I can watch the irritation
sort of flower inside of me,
and then when it's there,
they say, "Look at it as though
you're sitting in a forest and you're
getting to watch a rare animal...
-[gun clicking]
-[woman gasps]
[Clancy] ...walking out into a clearing."
And instead of, you know...
As most of us do when anger comes in,
we react to it,
we go into reactivity mode,
which is, maybe, you would stop meditating
and scream at your dogs,
or you would do something
to make them quiet.
-[President] Behavior that amplifies it.
-Yeah, that's it. So you just watch.
-You watch.
-[panting]
Buddhism compares anger
to a sweet flower with bitter roots,
and so we follow the sweetness down.
Is she in labor?
[panting]
-Yeah, she's, like...
-Okay. All right.
Hey, you all right? Need anything?
[screams]
-Just breathe.
-We were planning a water birth.
[President]
Pull over. Maybe we can find something.
[tires screech]
[woman vocalizing]
[continues panting]
[President] Hmm.
-[Clancy] What?
-Oh, my God!
[all grunt]
[President] What are we talking about?
[woman] He was talking about meditation
or something.
[Clancy] Yeah.
Or just watching your feelings, you know?
You follow the feelings down
into the poisonous roots...
Do you do that in a feeling way
or an insight way, if that makes sense?
Do you just follow the feelings,
or do you have some sort of specific,
"That reminds me of some experience,"
or something?
Well, it's called "noting,"
so you would... You can...
You know, it's like... It's just...
-Think about an emotion.
-Yeah.
These are these really
kind of ambiguous...
These bodily-based things
you're faintly aware of many times.
-Yeah, exactly. What is that thing, right?
-Yeah.
So this is the practice
of taking a microscope
and looking into the recurring emotional
patterns that are happening inside of you.
Because most of the time,
if you have a negative emotion,
-you'll try to avoid it.
-Yeah.
-You try to move onto the next activity...
-Oh, come on!
-[Clancy] Always in a state...
-[zombie groans]
Damn zombos.
-What if we don't turn our backs...
-What?
[camera clicks]
...and zoom in on the thing and see,
what is this fractal?
It's really an interesting practice.
-Just...
  • [President] All right.
-And push!
-[panting]
-Breathe!
-Oh, no.
-You can do this!
-Push. Breathing's before. Push.
[Clancy] But then you breathe.
Isn't it breathing first?
-No, it's push! Oh, hello, there!
-[crying]
Let's get out of here.
In Buddhism, the idea is all of those
mental forms of analysis of these things
-are kind of secondary to...
-[zombies moaning]
...the very simple observation
of the way any emotional state or thought
or bodily feeling has a similar pattern
in that it heightens,
dissipates, and goes away.
For me, a lot of that magical stuff
you're talking about happens
in an interpersonal context.
I'm a kind of person
that it's very difficult for me
to stay with some of those things
unless there's a presence.
[rock music playing faintly]
There are also people like you that,
you know, you see in my field,
and that's a massive field these days.
Most people that practice it don't do it
as well as what you're describing.
What you're saying
is a big part of the practice, too.
You're talking about sangha,
the spiritual community,
-which is acknowledged in Buddhism too.
-[gun blasting]
-[man screaming]
-What's important is,
let's encourage each other
to get as close to the truth as we can.
Or, as you mentioned earlier,
to meeting reality on reality's terms.
I think that the big surprise
is everyone's like, "Oh, reality sucks,
-the world sucks... "Come here, bud.
-[grunting]
We're trying to do this process
where we sort of keep going backwards
until we can't look at ourselves anymore.
We want to go to this complete observer
state until you get to the thing...
-[President] Awareness of awareness.
-That's it.
-Yeah.
-And then you become pure awareness,
and the concept is
that is what we really are,
and that this entire material universe,
including our body,
-is a kind of phen... I can't say it.
-[cooing]
-Phenomenological.
-Phenomenological field of phenomena.
A field of phenomena being encapsulated
within this consciousness,
and so the idea that I am alone,
or the idea that I am an individual,
is actually, interestingly enough,
you're already not.
It's false. It's a distortion.
'Cause you're the thing and the observer
simultaneously meeting together,
-and that creates the illusion of self.
-[zombies snarling]
I mean, if the universe was a dolphin,
then, basically,
our bodies would be a fishing net.
We're all kind of entangled in ourselves.
You feel shit like that
when you're high on acid?
Yes, you do.
[groaning] Ah!
[screeching, crunching]
[growls]
[Clancy] Whoa!
This feels really good.
Oh, yeah! Oh, my God, I'm in love with it!
Yeah, it kinda sounds like
the zombies are...
The zombos are singing!
♪ First, we're born ♪
♪ And then we die ♪
♪ And in between
Most of us spend all our time crying ♪
♪ Crying, crying, crying ♪
♪ Once we were blind, but now we can see ♪
♪ It feels good to be a zombie... ♪
Now I see there's nothing to get in
and nothing to get out of!
It's that simple!
♪ We move slow ♪
♪ 'Cause there's no need to run ♪
♪ Besides, what's the point of running
When it's love that you're running from? ♪
[gasps]
Dan!
♪ Life was a jail and we found the key ♪
♪ In the bite of a zombie ♪
♪ Ooh ♪
[man over loudspeaker]
Mr. President!
Oh!
[all whooping]
[man]
We're here to save you, Mr. President.
We have the antidote harpoon.
Do not panic.
We will hand you the antidote crossbow.
[snarls]
Firing the antidote harpoon.
-Yeah!
-[man] Blast the antidote harpoon now!
Fire the antidote!
-Fire a zombie antidote at the president!
-[whooping continues]
-[upbeat music playing faintly]
-[guns blasting]
[roaring]
[laughing]
[growling]
Thank you so much for being a great guest.
Do you have any last words?
Thank you for having me!
Last words...
There's no such thing as a bad drug.
It's the circumstances!
[screams]
Goodbye!
[blows horn]
[snarling]
[barking]
-[upbeat music continues]
-[man chanting in foreign language]
[beeping]
Holy shit, friends! Did you see that?
Guts ripped out, and yet,
here I am, all in one piece.
Thank you so much,
oh, great denizens of the multiverse,
for listening to Midnight Gospel.
And to my one subscriber,
Hernog Jenson, I live for you.
You're the reason I wake up in the morning
with a smile on my face,
so keep listening, Hernog,
and I'll see you in your dreams.
[President] I love being around people who
help me see the world through new glasses,
and you're one of those people.
There's no such thing as a bad drug.
-[President, distorted] Good drugs...
-[Chuck] Get in!
[President, distorted] Good drugs...
[Chuck, distorted] Get in!
[man speaking indistinctly]
[Chuck, distorted] Get in!
[echoing] Good drugs...
