2023.06.07 14:13 hearden Golden Vault Conversion: The Murkmire Malevolence (1st-level)
It's been awhile since I played this so this post is quite delayed, but I'm here now with my deeper dive into setting the Golden Vault adventures in Wildemount. Anthology Conversion
I'll be covering the following sections — Location
, and Resources
— for the 1st-level adventure, The Murkmire Malevolence.
“You’ve got to steal the Murkmire Stone and bring it back so I can save the city!”
I like the Varkenbluff Museum of Natural History being in a big city — it makes sense for them to then have the resources available to magic-ward the building in the various ways we see in the adventure. A smaller city could have such a museum, but a large or small town definitely not.
For examples of such cities, I recommend Rexxentrum, Zadash, Nicodranas, Port Damali, Rosohna, or Uthodurn.
My personal preference, as well as where I set this the two times I ran it, is Rexxentrum. I just like how having it in the Empire opens up the possibility of tying Cerberus Assembly stuff into it, including Dr. Dannell's involvement and the museum's arcane traps and workings.
With that in mind, this section isn't necessary, but if you're looking to give some flavor to the adventure to make it feel more immersed in the world, as opposed to just a drop-in module, then there's a lot to work with.
Dr. Cassee Dannell, first of all, could be an archaeologist who works for the Soltryce Academy, Hall of Erudition, or the Marble Tomes Conservatory, both being arcane universities. I would say the Cobalt Soul Archives don't work in this case since they're not as much an arcane-focused organization.
Curator Alda Arkin could just be a freelance fence working independently, but she could also
be a Myriad fence, using the museum as her cover.
If you're not using the Golden Vault as your group's patron, mages who're interested in the Murkmire Stone — such as Doolan Tversky, Yussa Errenis, Vess deRogna, or Essek Thelyss — could either be hiring the party to grab the stone for them or
could be the ones funding the stone's safekeeping for the gala... and then perhaps Alda sneaks it away after the gala to be delivered directly to them. Who knows!
I ran this adventure twice with two different groups. It was pretty straightforward, hence why this post is on the shorter end compared to my other conversion posts. A lot of the additions I made were simply flavor ones, having the PCs know certain NPCs already or being familiar with the museum using the given hooks or expanding on an NPC's written personality to include a brief backstory that helped make them feel less one-dimensional (especially for an adventure that has so many named NPCs).
The two groups I ran were for a oneshot with 5 players and for an anthology series side campaign with 2 players. Both were set in Rexxentrum with the same NPCs quirks and backstories.
The oneshot group
was first, so I learned from all of my mistakes with them. Party was warlock, monk, Draconic sorcerer, artificer, and rogue.
I had had their meeting with Dannell in the morning, as the book said, but since the gala was at night, they took that as an opportunity to go around the museum during business hours (the Gemstone Wing was, of course, closed and cordoned off). That let them get the layout of the museum before
the gala, as opposed to having to attend the gala and plan at the same time.
Hilariously, the warlock kept trying to get in with the guards as a new hire but wouldn't back down even when the guards told her that Alda hired guards directly herself, so there was no such "job posting" asking for new hires. This almost busted their recon period since Alda got suspicious when one of the guards came to her office saying that the warlock was claiming to be a family friend, too, but eventually Alda got busy and ignored this after telling the guards to shoo the warlock off.
The party left themselves an escape rope hanging from the skylight (the rogue had climbed the building from the outside during the recon portion) and then hid in the bathrooms or the supply closets after the gala.
I accidentally skipped over the part where the animatronic doesn't attack anyone and just jumps downstairs to wreak havoc. Sureth died in this oneshot because she was standing 5 feet away from the animatronic when the artificer activated it from the other side then quickly backed up. The animatronic crit on her, but she got revived at the end of the story by the Golden Vault cleaning things up.
The warlock also was knocked unconscious because (since I hadn't sent the animatronic downstairs and the party was in hiding watching Maryam and the guards fight it) she fled downstairs to create a distraction, and the guards down there knocked her out. She was arrested but I had their Golden Vault handler come by and talk her free.
On the bright side, the artificer did end up in a relationship with Dr. Dannell, who he came into the adventure having an established crush on, so that was cute.
In the wrap-up, we established that the party convinced Dannell to quit her association with the Soltryce Academy and go do research and similar work for the Golden Vault. The museum was shut down for investigation by the Cerberus Assembly and the Crown, and its future of ever being open again was put into question because of the havoc that'd been caused by the animatronic killing Sureth.
In terms of runtime, that group did 6 hours with 1 hour debrief, 3 hours prep, and 2 hours heist/combat.
The anthology group
was second and only had two players, so I extra scaled everything down (removed half HP from everything). Part was Clockwork Soul sorcerer and rogue.
Same thing happened with the "early meeting" and "late gala" prep time — they wanted to go in during business hours to recon because there was still a whole day to kill. I've been recommended that, perhaps, the DM should skip from the meeting to the gala immediately, but I think that players might still say "hey, we had all of those hours to kill, we could've been doing recon then, too". In that case, maybe it'd be for the best that Dannell meets with them shortly before the gala so that there's no time to really do separate recon.
The sorcerer and rogue pretended to be on a date, and since this is an anthology connected to my campaign, we had a lot more stuff to work with. (The players were controlling NPCs-turned-PC-sheets that they've met before and are allies with in the campaign; the anthology is basically "what were these characters doing while y'all were not with them?") My favorite part being that they were both nobles, so I played off the idea that everyone knew them... which then made them have to work around the fact that people knew their faces so they couldn't be too suspicious since it'd be too easy to catch and identify them.
The rogue was the eldest child of Watchmaster Brunda Gleshin (and the black sheep of their family), so I had them know Maryam as a former Watch captain who'd retired to take on private museum security (it pays better than law enforcement). There was a lot
of snarky back and forth between the rogue and Maryam because of that once they had gone up to scope out the second floor. This was my favorite interaction:
Micha: We'll leave you alone, but nice to see that you've taken up this... position.
Micha: I'm sure my mother is very proud of you.
Maryam: Can't say the same for you.
They also set the skylight up for later, mingle at the gala (Watchmaster Gleshin is there, much to the rogue's chagrin), and then make their leave. But they don't actually leave and go in through the basement, fight the mimic, go into the records room and Alda's office and kill Marigold. Then they leave again and head up to the attic to wait for the museum's closing.
They'd previously tried to talk up some guards to see who they could maybe flip during the heist... but then when it comes time for them to come out of hiding, both of them discover that the guards have all changed positions so now the guard set-up they'd lifted is useless.
(This was fully
because they chose to come in early and Maryam saw the rogue walking around during normal business hours, so she went and tipped off Alda right before the gala. I thought it was a nice touch since the rogue was acting real cocky and it further emphasized their bad reputation for being a troublemaker around town, that any Crownsguard who knew them would automatically think they're up to something.)
At the end of the day, both heists were successful, although the oneshot group definitely had more chaos going on, likely due to the number of players and the fact that I'd missed the line about the animatronic not causing real people damage. The oneshot group swapped the stone for the replica while the anthology players swapped the stone for a sack of ten pounds of adventuring gear... because it was "more fun". When I pointed out that that meant they'd probably know that the sorcerer and rogue did it since they were the only adventurers casing the museum earlier in the day, the rogue replied, "Yeah. We want them to know! They can't catch us. With what proof?"
I also found that Cassee was popular to flirt with. I mean, she's a dorky archaeologist, so I guess that was written in the stars already. In the oneshot group, as aforementioned, the artificer ended up dating her, but in the anthology group, the rogue tried to flirt with her and ask her out for dinner... but she declined because they were way
too boisterous and high energy for her. (In comparison, the artificer from the other group was also shy and quiet like her, so she appreciated that... and his starting hook was knowing Dannell through academics, so there was that.)
There's already future hooks discussed in this adventure, so I won't repeat those. However, I think because of the huge amount of named NPCs in this adventure, there's a lot of opportunities to reuse them later on, especially if you're running the adventures as connected like I am for my anthology group. Could be a nice callback.
The museum guards, if the museum is shut down, could reappear as guards in a later adventure, showing that they had to find somewhere else to work.
Alda Arkin, if her fencing was never discovered, could rise up to do bigger work and be involved with a later heist, such as Masterpiece Imbroglio.
Even Dr. Dannell herself could reappear in a later adventure that has to do with arcane magic or weird creatures (perhaps Markos Delphi has correspondence with her about eldritch horrors?).
I'm currently playing with the idea that Franceena, who the anthology rogue gave the business card of their dueling academy they run to, could have gone and taken those dueling lessons and become stronger over time, reappearing in a mid tier adventure (Vidorant's Vault?) as part of a rival crew. I haven't implemented it yet since I'm also considering using the Thieves' Gallery from Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves
as a rival crew, but who knows! It's fun to think about, regardless.
As a side note, I also love that Dr. Horthnar Stonecrusher shares a name with Torgja Stonecrusher of the prewritten rival crew. It could be that it's just a happenstance of having the same name, especially since they're both dwarves... but I think it could also be fun if they're related — maybe he's her father and he mentions at the gala how his daughter has run off with some 'petty thieves'? And then she appears later as part of the rival crew!
In addition, I didn't get to implement this because I thought of it after
I'd run both games, but I had the idea of dropping foreshadowing objects in the displays to hint at later Golden Vault adventures (similar to the museum episode of Black Mirror
, iykyk). These obviously can't all
be the MacGuffins of the adventures because those MacGuffins have to be somewhere, but maybe they could be allusions to characters the players will encounter or locations they'll go to.
- a casino chip from Afterlife for Stygian Gambit
- a plaque about the Celestial Codex or the actual book itself (donated by Vasil and later stolen by Markos after the events of this adventure because so many of the guards quit and he was able to sneak in easier) for Reach for the Stars
- tools that were used to build Revel's End, a painting of Revel's End, or the needles/original tech that was later used to make Prisoner 13's magic tattoos for Prisoner 13
- a bunch of automatons or clockwork trinkets for Tockworth's Clockworks
- a replica of the Constantori's Portrait for Masterpiece Imbroglio
- an exhibit of things donated by Froderic Dartwild before his death for Axe from the Grave
- an exhibit of a master thief whose identity is unknown and their many exploits, including stealing the ruby diadem of the Goldenbeard family for Vidorant's Vault
- a mural about Xeluan and his friends' heroic deeds for Shard of the Accursed
- an art installation of glasswork from Ghalasine for Heart of Ashes
- a model automated train replica of the Concordant Express that educates viewers on how the Outer Planes work OR plaques talking about all of the cases Ignatius Inkblot has solved for Affair on the Concordant Express
- a plaque talking about a Shard Solitaire, the many rumored variants of it, and how Varkenbluff has tried to acquire one from a famous adventurer, Zorhanna Adulare, but she hasn't been willing to part with it for Party at Paliset Hall
- and finally an exhibit/plaque/mural about the efreeti tyrant Vrakir, his long reign of terror destroying cities, and his unknown whereabouts now for Fire and Darkness
No third-party supplements were used in either of my runs of this adventure. My Playlists: Gala
My rating for this adventure doesn't change from my original conversion post of the book.
8/10 - simple, effective, and meets all of the three pillars. The anthologies usually don't miss with the 1st-level adventures. I docked points simply because the flavor and setting was a bit predictable, but it makes sense to start an anthology with a classic museum heist.
Overall, it's still very fun, and both groups loved it when I ran it for how 'classic heist' it feels. It's got a lot of potential for future hooks
Hope you enjoyed, thanks for reading, and happy gaming!

2023.06.07 14:12 n8millerhighlife 38 [M4F] - #Central Pennsylvania - #PA - Chip Looking for his Joanna
Welcome to my little corner of reddit!
I'm looking for a partner for the end of the world. (I'm only half joking about that by the way.)
Disclaimer: Please don't ghost. If you're not interested, just say so.
I'm an aging punker and liberal leaning. I'm a lover of all things weirdand ridiculous. I'm located in Central Pennsylvania. A divorced father of two. (We share custody 50/50 and there's minimal to no drama.)
I have my own place, my own car, a stable career, a good credit score and no unreasonable or excessive debt.
I pride myself on being vulnerable and authentic always and I don't mind showing that to my partner.
I'm emotionally intelligent and emotionally available. I've been described as witty, playful, attentive and funny. I'm definitely an old soul. I jokingly say I'm an analog man in a digital world. To me, it's not about the destination, but the journey.
I'm an avid music lover. I collect vinyl. I also dabble in woodworking and DIY. I love to kayak and be around water. I'm a huge fan of documentaries and I do love a good cheesy 80s horror flick. Fall is my favorite season and Halloween is my favorite holiday.
I love animals. I love both dogs and cats equally but I'm currently a cat dad.
I'd describe myself as someone who usually takes the road less traveled and I kind of do my own thing when it comes to my interests. I've been told that I'm more of a chaotic good. My Myers Briggs personality type is ENJF-A if that tells you anything.
My love languages are quality time and physical touch. After some consideration, it's kind of impossible to have physical touch without quality time.
Some of the physical touch I enjoy is receiving beard scratches, giving from behind hugs and foot rubs to my partner. I'm also a snuggler and hopeless romantic.
I have the time and energy to put into someone. I've done a lot growing over the past couple of years and I finally feel like I'm ready to find my forever.
I'm also not vanilla.
Here's a pic of me. https://imgur.com/a/VrRp9Lu
I tend to be more attracted to feminine energy and girly girls but I understand if that's not for everyone. I'm open to all races and ethnicities. I do have my preferences but I'm definitely not picky.
I love curvy, cute and cuddly women for sure.
I'd love for you to not be vanilla as well and somewhat exploratory. Please have a sense of humor. A good flirt to roast ratio is a love language all it's own.
Please be located close by or willing to put in the work to communicate and travel or host of need be, because I am.
Please also be consistent. I don't want to be the only one to carry on the conversation. Ghosts need not apply.
Please have an open heart and an open mind for love. I promise you if you do, our lives will both be enriched by one another.

2023.06.07 14:12 Nervous-Living2824 How a shouting guy chased me at a waterpark
This is not going to be that scary like other stories you can read here, but when it happened to me it was really really frightening. Also I apologize because it might be a little long.
So this happened a few weeks ago in the countryside at my neighbours (and friends) waterpark.
It was the second day that it opened in the season and there was only one pool in use. Like I said before, it was our neighbour's place. When we arrived (my friend with her parents and my parents and me) me and my friend (I'm going to call her Anna from now on, it's not her real name) went in the pool while our parents were at the buffet having lunch. Before I continue, I would like to mention that we are both girls and minors.
I remember seeing a group of people, about 3 or 4 guys and 2 smaller girls. I think they were siblings, but the point is, there were no adults with them. They all played and had fun together, and I remember looking at them and thinking: 'ohh it's so nice seeing the older brothers playing and having fun with their little sisters and everyone looks so happy!' (seeing love among people always makes me emotional).
As time passed, Anna and I got hungry so we went to the buffet where our families were. When we got there, we saw that same group one or two tables away from us. I was standing there, Anna sitting, and I saw them staring at us. Again, I didn't think much of it.
After lunch only Anna and her mother were in the pool. The next things didn't happen to me, and at that time I didn't realise it was happening, Anna's mother told us later. She heard the guys from that group telling one to go up to Anna. That guy was in some way mentally disabled. I really don't want to offend anyone by saying that, I don't think that a disabled person would be less than any other person. It was not their choice but it is the people's choice to bully them or think differently about them which is just so so so dumb. Anyway the other boys encouraged him to go up to Anna. She didn't notice any of this happening, and by accident, she went to her mother right before he would have gone up to her. Then they heard the encouraging guys say 'come back, her mother is here'.
Later when we were all in the pool, I kept noticing that they were always looking at us and that one guy following us everywhere. My mother went out of the pool, I was with Anna and her mom when the he came up to me and said hi. Of course, i said hello because there is nothing wrong with this. But I have severe social anxiety and I wasn't feeling very comfortable. He was staring at me so strangely... Anna saw this too and she started to feel uncomfortable too. Her mother told us what had happened before then the three of us decided to go to my dad who was not very far from us.
The guy came closer, he even followed us when there were two adults there with us. By this point we were feeling really uncomfortable so we decided to get out of the pool, my mother was outside anyway. So nothing bad could happen right? Wrong. As we were getting out of the pool, we heard the guy come after us while he shouted: 'wait for me' and 'don't leave me'. We could see my mom so we went that way. Anna started panicking, so she decided to run. And because of her, I started to run too. After it happened, of course I know that it was a bad thing to do but at that time I was so creeped out, I couldn't think normally. I took off my slippers, because i couldn't run in them. When we got to my mother, i didn't have time to explain what's happening, because I really had to go to the bathroom. I gave her my slippers and run through this grass field that unfortunately had smaller branches and rocks lying there. I wasn't wearing my glasses, so I couldn't even see what i stepped on while being chased by a shouting guy. When I got to the women's bathroom (what was completely empty), I felt so relieved. I slipped a few times because wet, muddy foot and shiny bathroom floor are not the greatest combo 😅. I went in one of the stalles. Everything was quiet. Then I started hearing this heavy breathing coming from the doors way. I knew it couldn't be a woman, because it was in such a deep voice. Like a guy who's tired from a run. Of course after the past events a thought it was him. At that moment I was thinking: 'this is it'. I knew that if he stood in the door, there would be no way for me to get out of there. I haven't felt that scared before. When I could no longer hear the heavy breathing, I slowly got out of the stall. When I went out, I could see him going in the man's restroom's way and my mother yelling at him. Apparently he wanted to get into the women's bathroom. Later my father spoke to him and after that he stopped following us (but when he passed by or when they left he was looking at us).
I don't blame him, I think it wasn't his fault, but the other boys' who encouraged him to go up to us. I'm quite sure they were just pulling a prank on him by telling him that we looked like we'd be interested in him. And honestly I don't think anything that bad would have happened if he got to us, but like I said, i have severe social anxiety and I'm a little paranoid too so the things that were happening made me feel very uncomfortable and scared.

2023.06.07 14:11 Front_Ad_5541 Can anyone name these birds, please?
| || |
Hey, everyone! I've had a bunch of new birds at my bird feeder again lately! Every morning I wake up and check my cameras while having my morning coffee, I get overly excited to check on the birds. Pictures 1-6 are new birds that have visited yesterday and today. Picture 7& 8 is a friendly little visitor that decided to be a bird for a bit. Picture 9 is the chunky cardinal that started all this for me. Since then though, I've noticed a few beautiful cardinals that must live around me. Picture 10 is what I'm currently feeding them. I'm open to suggestions on new bird foods to try out if you have any. Thank you for your time! I take what you all tell me and research it to tell my five-year-old, he's super invested in the birds too! submitted by Front_Ad_5541 to whatsthisbird [link] [comments]
2023.06.07 14:11 fisherman213 Traveling here doing research; best place to interact with local Moroccans? (Survey in post for those interested)
I am a student from the United States here for undergrad research. I'm doing research via survey in French and English, and working on a Arabic translation too. The research is on the relationship between texting/messaging frequency and how it affects in person relationships. I was wondering where the best places would be to meet local Moroccans and interact? This is my first time in Morocco and Africa as a whole, so I'm wondering what would be the best way to go about this, as I'm trying to make sure I don't break an social rules I may be unaware of. I'm also open to anything you guys think I should see while I'm here that I may not know about, as I am trying to make the most of my time here. It's been wonderful so far, and I cannot get enough of that thè Morrocain. I appreciate the help.
I'll also plug my survey here, it's about two minutes long, and if you have the time to take it, it would greatly help my research and I would be very appreciative. https://umn.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV\_1Srezb6f8hda7KC

2023.06.07 14:11 EziSoHard 6 day old puppy with skin issue:(
Plz help , my 6 day old puppy has something going on with his skin. I can’t tell if it’s mange, mites, or something else. The skin is dry, flaky, and his coat is becoming a bit patchy. I’ve been applying coconut oil to his back to try and get rid of bacteria and keep it moisturized but it seems to be growing(the area being affected). If anybody has a clue/remedy I’m open to trying anything to make him feel better. He’s too young for a bath/soak and I have him separated from his litter mates and besides not gaining weight like his mates are he seems very healthy.
P.S. i love advice, not costly vet bills

2023.06.07 14:11 autotldr Kosovo president open to new elections in Serb-majority municipalities
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original
reduced by 62%. (I'm a bot)
Kosovo could trigger new elections in Serb-majority municipalities rocked by violent protests if 20% of voters sign a petition asking for them, the president told Reuters. Summary Source FAQ Feedback Top keywords: Kosovo#1 president#2 Osmani#3 Serb#4 Serbia#5
In an exclusive interview in her office, President Vjosa Osmani said she believed a petition was the most "Democratic way" to proceed to new elections.
Violent protests erupted in four northern municipalities after Kosovo installed ethnic Albanian mayors who were elected into offices on a turnout of just 3.5%. Serbs, who form a majority in the region, boycotted the local polls.
Osmani said removing mayors through a voter petition would be "Sort of a referendum" which would open the way for a second vote to be held to elect new mayors.
Osmani said she wanted those peacekeeping troops to stay until Kosovo was admitted into NATO. Osmani said that before new elections were called, Kosovo would need reassurances from the international community that Belgrade would not interfere.
Last week, an aide to U.S. President Joe Biden spoke with Kosovan Prime Minister Albin Kurti and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, pushing Serbia to withdraw armed forces stationed near the border and urging protesters to remain peaceful.

2023.06.07 14:11 RedRiam S6 fails the sapphic bechdel test
You don't need to read if you don't really want to listen or if these conversations make you uncomfortable. If you do, I hope you are open and understand where I'm comming from.
I trully think we are in the straightest season since s2, probably even worse because season 2 conversations were rich and full of banter and character building. Not constant checks on who your interested in, between two guys I don't want. Bella the ONLY female li once again has 6 sentences dedicated to her route, between way more were she talks about guys with you and "having fun" with them (And lets be clear I wanted no fun with them since the first episode). You still are unable to make public you just want bella, and multiple characters are pushing you into every other straight route. You can just softly express interest once to her, while Roberto and your current li get like 6 conversations only about their interest in you, having to say where your heads at. And only 1 of them actually lets you say "I'm not interested" but it obvs had to in the shitty code were they need to know "I like someone else" as if I can't just not be into them.
It's exausting to be honest. I mean it already was tiring that most season you have to wait to couple up with a woman (and the forced conversations about them liking other people), and that most put words in your mouth regarding male love interest. But I've seen no season push this hard for being straight (after s5). After replaying s4 were stakes were way lower, it wasn't constant cheap drama and interest checks, but many actual conversations building the characters, the lis felt different, and you had the chance to have two way different best friends, and more importantly it took seriously letting you be just into Najuma, and not the many guy options. Now I have to wait for two over the top scenes with two male Lis I'm not interested in, one suposedly knowing that.
Even if this is a step up from s5, this writers need to really understand that in romance is important to have the chance to decline someones advances and that "no means no". And going back to the sapphic stuff, I want to be able to choose Bella like I was forced to choose "Lewie" even if there is forced drama and the same questionable writing at least let me have it with a character I'm interested in. It would also in the process, be making for ONCE a comitted female li going all out to woo you, which we've never had (we've always been the ones having to take the steps and put in the work to pursue these romances)

2023.06.07 14:11 CapableRhubarb5 I was the middle car in a 3 car collision, unsure about liability.
I would just like to state before I start, this collision happened in October last year and I have since bought a dashcam.
I was driving to work along a motorway with the typical reduce speed limits overhead, (from my recollection 40 mph), traffic was slowing to a stand still and I ended up being the middle car in quite a slow 3 car collision.
My version of events is that I slowed with enough time to stop but the car behind me didn't and sent me into the car in front. I am fairly confident of this but obviously was in shock at the incident and didn't have a dashcam at the time. My car (renault clio 22) has following distance warnings and I am always conscious of them when driving ( Only A Fool Breaks The 2-Second Rule
), especially in heavy traffic, so I am almost certain I had enough time to break and would not have hit the car in front had the car behind me not hit me first. But hey ho accidents happen and the main thing is no one was hurt really.
I did suffer a couple of bruises from the incident, I hit my head off the roof of my car and my knee of my steering wheel but that was about the height of it. As far as I could tell the other two drivers were fine and none of us had any passengers. We exchanged insurance information at the scene and took a few photos and then departed. I did give my number to both parties and the front car contacted me a few times about when her car would get fixed (she had never been in a accident before, neither have I for that matter). I informed her to contact her insurance and that they would deal with my insurance and the person behind me's insurance.
The car in front of me (vw golf) had a cracked number plate, probably rear bumper damage, my front bumper had a bit of damage but the main damage was to my rear bumper which knocked the boot out of alignment out making it nearly impossible to open. My horn was also broken in the incident. As far as I could see, the car that hit me had no visible damage, it was a more modern mini and I think the projecting plastic round the grill seemed to have been what made impact. I have since suffered heightened anxiety on the road (any time a car fills my rear view mirror it causes me a lot of fear or if a car pulls into space I have left for braking distance I get quite scared).
I have obviously provided all this information to my insurer, I only claimed for the damage to my car and did not pursue any injury claims or anything of the like. It took about 5 months for my car repair to be completed which was in March and the claim is still unresolved. I have renewed my insurance within this time and recently decided to check the status of my claim and received this message:
"Liability is still outstanding for this incident. The party at the front is holding us at fault for hitting them in the rear and the party at the rear is alleging your vehicle 'rebounded' off the car in front into her car and that she was stationary. We have disputed this and asked for any evidence they have to support this as it seems unlikely to have happened like that. I can't give a timescale on how long it is likely take to settle I'm afraid. "
I honestly don't know how the car behind me is trying to argue this was all my fault. I do not believe her car was stationary and I don't really see how the more significant damage was caused from a "rebound". There are also no dash cams or witnesses that I am aware of, and obviously my recollection could be bias.
My question is what is the likely liability outcome here and when on earth can I expect a resolution? At this point I really don't care who's at fault and would just like the claim resolved. Surely joint liability would just be the easiest thing to do?
Any insight would be great.
Sorry for the length, I am just frustrated at the fact this hasn't been resolved and regretting not claiming for injury too now, giving the fact the woman at the rear is being so difficult.
TLDR; I was the middle car in a 3 car accident 8 months ago, liability is still outstanding, rear car is claiming I am entirely at fault, what is the likely outcome?

2023.06.07 14:10 FortyNinthParallel Advice on creating a system allowing a player to go beyond prepared casting
One of my players (a cleric) is frustrated by the prepared casting system. He feels obligated to prepare Revivify and Beacon of Hope and, (in our campaign), Create Food and Water, and therefore has limited options, which frequently end up being irrelevant despite having hyper-relevant spells unprepared. I understand his frustration, but even if I didn't I would be open to addressing it.
My thought would be to allow him to cast an unprepared spell with some kind of penalty, and I'm looking for this community's thoughts on the idea and suggestions of penalties.
You gain the ability to channel divine energy directly from your deity, bypassing your own limitations to fuel magical effects beyond the norm. As an action, you present your holy symbol, speak a prayer, and open yourself to divine power. Burning Channel enables you to cast a single unprepared spell at the cost of two spell slots. You can use Burning Channel twice between rests.
Or perhaps an Exhaustion level? Irresistible radiant damage equal to 1d10 for every spell level?

2023.06.07 14:10 Noname_4Me Does this program gets wacky often?
I was working on a univ. magazine. It usually done by word until last autumn. But we decided to switch to indesign. This was my first project that I get to do editing.
As you've guessed from title, a blue screen popped up and my file gone corrupt so it doesn't open at all. This is frustrating af. I'll search for recoveries but rn I need to vent here. I was predicting non-saved data gone, but not the whole file gone. I'm speechless.

2023.06.07 14:10 Wolfie8301 Resources for learning how to make shortcuts?
I have spent hours with Shortcuts, and the more time I spend trying to create, the more confused I get. I watch videos online, but when I try to do the same thing, I don’t get the same options. it seems like a lot of information is for older versions? Where can I get properly educated on how to create basic shortcuts because none of the resources I’ve come across help.
I’d like to have a better grasp in general, but right now I’m just trying to create a simple shortcut that forces you to the Home Screen when opening overused apps like instagram and TikTok. Setting up the automation was easy, but there’s absolutely no way I could get it to select between certain hours of the day. Or set it for a certain amount of hours. I’m stuck literally editing inside the shortcut to activate and deactivate. Seems like it should be so freakin simple. Please point me to the right place to learn shortcuts?

2023.06.07 14:09 Yazoyu_Kreed Feel like a loser? Read this.
This is inspired by the post from u/PM_ME_ZEUS_PICS
. I'm a 26 year old IB associate making ~$400k and I graduated from Wharton undergrad after doing the traditional internships. You might think I'm a hardworking success. Couldn't be further from the truth. I got lucky. Tremendously lucky....multiple times. But you must have worked hard to get into Wharton right?
Partially true. I did study my ass off in high school to get a 4.0 and high SAT scores, but I never had the goal of attending an Ivy. My dream school was UCLA and my dream was to own a little coffee shop. I didn't even know the difference between investment banking and the bank teller.
I only applied to Wharton because I simped over a girl (lmao) and wanted to get into her dream college (plot twist...she didn't get in...) I scrambled junior year to sign up for a bunch of extracurriculars to fluff my college app and made up some bullshit inspirational story in my college essay about wanting to get into finance to fund a startup to save the dying bookstore industry LOL. But you must have worked hard to get your internshps right?
HA. No...I partied hard in college. I didn't even think about internships until sophomore year when it was too late. Ended up taking an unpaid internship with a "private equity" fund in the middle of nowhere in California. Turned out to be a solid search fund and gave me enough ammo for junior year recruiting. Except I fucking sucked at everything finance
. I got rejected from like 10 different EBs and BBs. Ended up at a no-name tech boutique IB my junior year after an unprescribed-adderall-fueled few months of recruiting.
There, I perfected the incredibly difficult task of moving logos around pages. I guess I did well enough, because I got the return offer. Ended up turning it down because I wanted the chiller consulting life instead, so went into full-time recruiting senior year. Except...I fucking sucked at everything consulting.
I didn't get a single interview. I got one product management interview and completely bombed it. By that time, EB and BB recruiting was over. So I applied to other boutiques that no one else applied to. There, I got insanely lucky.
I ended up at a boutique that, by some miracle, paid more than the BB/EBs. I took an extra dose of adderall on that superday and killed it. But now you're an associate. You must have done well right?
Eh. I did not hit the ground running as an analyst. I did everything wrong and I was horrible at interpersonal skills on top of that. I survived through...you guessed it, a lot of adderall.
Now drugs are funny things in that it opens you up to trying a lot of new stuff...in my case, that included a little devil called Oxycontin. I was in a slippery slope my 2nd year, but I lucked out again, because my dealer disappeared, so I had no source and my toxic habit ended there.
Anyways, I worked hard, but I wasn't even supposed to get my 3rd year analyst offer since I didn't seem very interested in the job. Luckily, other analysts in my class left and I was promoted. By the way, I also tried PE recruiting, and..you guessed it...I fucking sucked at PE recruiting.
So I gave up a few months into it and took the associate promotion instead. I've gotten my life together since then and I now feel a lot more confident in my abilities and where I'm at. I'm very happy with my life, but I have no delusions. I was tremendously lucky. Everything fell into place at the right time. I stumbled and stumbled and somehow....mission failed succesfully. I may be the exception, but there are more stories out there similar to mine than you would expect. Stop comparing yourself. Success is a LOT of luck.

2023.06.07 14:09 RigidFlexibility Some thoughts on journaling for my own mental health, or maybe going too far.
First time posting in this community, and with my alt account for privacy. I debated posting in hypotheticalsituations or maybe AITA but they both felt a little too surreal.
To keep the story a little brief, Ive only been in a scant handful of relationships that were all ultimately abusive, mentally and sexually, and have no heart for conflict.
A major point that kept coming up was my 'forgive and forget' nature. I dont really hold grudges, I cant stay mad at anyone, Id rather just move on... but all of my partners were very much the opposite. If I forgot something a year ago I was still hearing about it, Im always doing this, I never get it right. But if I tried to point out otherwise, Id be expected to produce the court documents, time stamped in triplicate to prove it (and before they can bring up another example between each one.)
Towards the end and after my last relationship, I started keeping a record. It started as some photos of 'the mess I left' to prove to myself that it was overwhelmingly made by my partner. Not to show to them, but to keep my own mind on the truth. It expanded to outlining each argument and comment and detail; they left the bathroom door open again and again, their phone had Tinder notifications, they felt I was scaring them by insisting on making a proper cheese sauce for the dinner they asked me to make, they were definitely fucking that person they told me not to worry about but didnt have the guts to tell me, that sort of thing. I wanted documented proof so if I ever felt like 'maybe things werent so bad', I could doomscroll my own lived experience, rather than relying on a faulty memory and eagerness to shut up and let myself be lied to for the sake of a quiet home.
Its not like this is useful information; no argument is going to give me time to review my notes, and even if I did have time-and-date ready at hand, itd either be dismissed out of hand for being a lie, or justify 'well i guess ill go kill myself then' behaviour.
I dont know why Im writing this, I suppose. Its one part off-my-chest, and one part sanity checking my own behaviour. Im not sure if Id keep this up if - god forbid - I somehow end up in another relationship, or how someone actually stable and mature would view such a 'survival tactic' if they were to find out their partner was keeping a doom scroll.

2023.06.07 14:08 Placebo_yue Best/Latest emulators for each console?
I posted this on the RG350 forum kinda accidentally, but my device is actually an RG280v, so i suppose i must post here as well. Here:
That one website with all the games and apps for opendingux is quite outdated, i found better versions of FCEUX by googling for example. But even googling theres like three githubs and versions that you gotta compile yourself, and websites that say LATEST ONE!! and then it's from 2020 and definitely not the latest one.. so i figured i should ask here, if anyone knows it's you all.
I currently have the 1.99 of picodrive, the reGBA with more scaling options and a blue menu, the pocketSNES with a cleaner menu (meaning, the settings are inside a settings section, unlike the stock that was a mess), the gambatte-DPS version, and the PSX emulator with the update that has a rumble% setting (not much of an improvement besides rumble tbh)
I wonder if i'm missing anything?
on SNES im still not quite happy with the smooth scaling option, but other than that, and perhaps very minor slowdowns here and there, it works fine, and on picodrive i wish there was some setting to make it look smoother, so for example the waterfalls on sonic look transparent as they were intended. I suppose asking for a composite video effect is too much for this device tho. The PSX emulator works wonderfully but the menus are awkward AF and often you have to close and open again to see the changes, the savestates end up being unusable for some reason, rumble stops working, loading a savestate corrupts the sounds, and so on...
On the other consoles i'm quite happy with performance and scaling options and such, so if there's no better GBA emulator i wouldn't mind at all, but still interested if there is one.

2023.06.07 14:08 cfcbot r/ChelseaFC Shutting Down
Dear London Blues fans,
As you may have noticed, Reddit’s recent and greedy stance on API fees will make third party apps unaffordable to support by their developers. In an act of support for a) these individuals, b) bot API needs that assist with many functions, and c) the terrible experience the alternative official Reddit app provides, ChelseaFC
will be joining countless other subs by shutting down on June 12 and 13.
For more information and what you can do to support, see this link
With respect to our shut down, we will be:
- Going private, which means that non-subbed users will not be able to access the subreddit. Let it be known that this is for non-footballing reasons cough spurs cough.
- Restricting new threads, which means users will not be able to submit posts. Commenting will remain open on existing threads posted prior to the shutdown.
We hope these drastic actions help highlight the dependency that millions of users have on third party apps, and the harm that Reddit is doing to our community and other communities across the site. We urge you to click the link above and see how you can help voice your concerns.

2023.06.07 14:07 preserved_killick Best for filtering mold and wood stove air pollution?
I suffer from sinus issues and congestion all winter. As soon as I close up the windows and turn on the heat in the late fall I get a post nasal drip cough which lasts until the spring and I can open the windows again. I've been tested for allergies (none) so my allergist suspects winter mold as an irritant or my wood stove. I've got a very old house with dirt floors in the basement which can be damp.
We'll stop using the wood stove next season to see if it helps, but I also want to add a good air filter. I read the buying guide here and based on that I'm leaning to a unit that focuses on particles only, not VOCs.
I'll also add that I'm hopeful but also skeptical that an air filter will help. 10 years ago I purchased a Rabbit Air unit and ran it in a closed bedroom 24/7 and it made no difference. It may have been not enough with the wood stove running, or just too small/weak. At this point, I don't mind spending $1000 on a unit if it helps some.
The MA-112 Air Purifier looks pretty good. Any others to consider?
And, is there a good way to measure air quality for particulates and even mold spores? I know there are a bunch on air quality devices on Amazon, but what exactly am I looking for when measuring pollution from a wood stove and mold particles? From the little reading I've done measuring PM 2.5 would cover both issues but not necessarily tell me which one?
Can anyone recommend a good air quality sensor?

What are some good fertilizers / plant food for indoor plants? I don’t know the difference between the two. Looking for one that I can use on all of them so I don’t have to buy a lot of them and use them only for one plant. Looking for more of an organic choice, but open to any kind. Is a liquid form better to use? submitted by Mundane-Bother-7019 to houseplants [link] [comments]

2023.06.07 14:07 Kind_Evening297 Is Sugarwish company legit?
I saw one of my facebook friends post about her job was hiring. They are hiring for customer service and data base entry. The pay starts at $20 hr and it's fully remote. I messaged said I was interested but then it got weird. She sent me a link through Telegram to apply for the job. I downloaded the application and texted them or the company saying I was interested in the job. I was very concerned so I started asking her questions like how long she worked with them and is it legit cause I never applied for a job this way. I never did remote either so I'm not sure on the process for those jobs. Later that day I saw 2 other girl's comment under her post saying how they both work for this company and it's great. Of course I went to the company site and they didn't have any openings so now 'm really unsure. did still go through it literally had a whole texting interview through Telegram. I started my interview at 4pm in the afternoon question didn't end until 7 pm by 7:30pm was told I got the job and to send my information like my name, address, email and phone number. Oh and picture of my ID so I did. It was mentioned that eventually I will have my and picture of my ID so I did. It was mentioned that eventually I will have my orientation via zoom until then telegram is going to be the main communication. It's now like 9 o'clock at night and they still texting me about the job mind you all equipment is included will be shipped. During the process they used words as in wont and grammar was a little off. The person I texted was Mrs.Sharon. I did reach out to my facebook friend who gave me the information about the job and she kept reassuring me that it is legit and I am safe. during the interview process, I did find it weird that they did ask me my telephone service and who do I bank with but did not ask me for any bank information. Now it is around nine 10 o'clock and Miss Sharon was telling me about the software is that I would have to use during the job and then I will have to purchase them which is gonna be $70. Then she asked me how would I like to pay for it? I can use cash app Zelle PayPal Apple Pay.That's when I got very iffy and I'm just not 100% sure about this anymore. they told me it wasn't a deadline to purchase the software but if I do take too long onto purchase this software but if I do take too long onto purchase this software program, then they will offer it the job to someone else is willing to pay. I do not know if anybody has experienced this or heard of this company. I'm just not sure what should I do. I'm really thinking about texting them telling them I do thank them for the time, but I would choose not to go this route, but I really don't wanna miss out on a great job opportunity either. They did send me an offer letter but the offer letter is stating that l'm full-time when I ask for part time because they are hiring for both. I did some research and I see there's a lot of articles about job scams through Telegram. But I'm just very uneasy about it just for the simple fact that I've been talking to those people since 4 o'clock yesterday all the way up until 10 o'clock at night which seems so crazy for a job. They did tell me they will mail over my equipment and the paperwork for my W-2 so I can fill it out. What should I do? Have anybody experienced this before?

2023.06.07 14:06 HatWithPlumage Are hunters really as brain-dead as people say?
I'm trying to settle down on a main as I have less time to play the game and alt hop, I've played a fair bit of hunter among other classes (currently playing unholy DK)
I'm really into the RP of being a goblin engineer (hunter seems closest to this), but have kept away from the class as people keep saying here's no complexity or skill ceiling
Is there complexity at higher levels? And is it worth maining one?
For reference I quite like doing open world content and do chill mythic+ (7-10) and raiding with my guild on the unholy DK
