The Last War

2085. Humanity faces extinction. Alien insects from the edge of our solar system, long hidden behind the façade of reality, descend to enslave us. Hordes of unspeakable horrors roll out from Central Asia, laying waste to anything in their path. The church of the fish-god scours the world for lost occult secrets to unleash terrible forces. Dead gods awaken and turn their dreadful eyes toward the Earth. And within hides a cancer, eating away at the very heart of the New Earth Government.

 This is the Aeon War. This is the time of CthulhuTech.

Climb inside a thirty-foot tall war machine and rain down hell on the unwavering Migou. Fight tooth and nail on the front lines against the horrific beasts of the Rapine Storm. Seek out the disgusting corruption of the insidious Esoteric Order of Dagon. Explore the dark world of the malignant Chrysalis Corporation and their unseen monstrous agents. Sift through secrets long thought lost and bend the power of the cosmos to your will. Join in symbiosis with something beyond time and space and become a shape-shifting bringer of wrath.

Nowhere else will you find a setting like this.

Inside these Quick-Start Rules you will find:

  • an overview of the rich world of the Aeon War.
  • an overview of the innovative Framewerk system. Not only cinematic, Framewerk puts control back where it belongs – in your hands.
  • the option to play a hardy and resourceful 21st century Human or join the fight as a night-skinned genetically-engineered Nazzadi.
  • the option to play as one of four fully-generated Characters, who are mysterious alien shape-shifting Tagers.
  • the Orthanach Stone, a fully fleshed-out, ready-to-run story, to get you into a game now.
  • details on four of the monstrous Dhohanoid servants of the Chrysalis Corporation.

The CthulhuTech Quick-Start Rules are a complete, self-contained storytelling game, for up to four players and a Storyguide. All you need besides this book are five to ten 10-sided dice.

I think you're over thinking the song a little. Well, a lot actually.

i’m too tired to discuss this now tbh but even billboard writes:

The chorus is a pints-up sing-along at a packed bar, with all five One Direction members coming together to remind everyone not to mess with their girl(s): “Couple billion in the whole wide world/Find another one, ‘cause she belongs to me.” It’s a ridiculous concept and revisits a problematic gender dichotomy.

and this is from an article (read the whole thing) that was written when the first preview was released, so they hadn’t even heard the whole song:

At the very least, the title “Steal My Girl” is an example of the insidious, everyday sexism that pervades pop culture today. We need to become more aware of this kind of subtle sexism and use our voices to challenge it. Honestly, it’s the only way that things are going to change.

First of all, it's bad enough that you use your blog to spread your toxic SJW thinking , but it's even worse that you're spreading your posion to other wg blogs as well. Now I see the same crap from Stcherrywell too because everyone's got to mindlessly follow agouti's biased lies without trying to learn the truth. I used to think that I could ignore your terrible opinions to see wg art, but it's not worth it. Your anti-gamer, pro-SJW agenda has lost you a follower. Goodbye!

hahaha oh my, oh my, this is my favorite ask yet. I am absolutely TICKLED by the notion that I am some grand puppetmaster orchestrating the insidious transformation of fetish wank into trigger warning’ed CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS posts. However, while Steph is a good friend, she is also an autonomous human being capable of independent thought, so I think you’re putting waaay too much stock in my HYPNOTOAD MIND CONTROL powers.

Besides, we all know who the REAL Gepetto behind the fatluminati is.

I’m so excited for Halloween and watching one scary movie a day throughout the entire month of October👌

Could you explain the whole "i don’t really have depression, i’m actually just a lazy piece of shit" = you've got depression, thing? It rang a bell for me and I'd like to know what you meant. Thanks :)

one of the most insidious things about depression is it doesn’t ‘feel’ like depression. even when you have it, you know you have it, you’ve been diagnosed—you still find yourself thinking, no, nope, this isn’t it, can’t be. it’s like the mental illness equivalent of that knight in monty python that keeps going ‘it’s a flesh wound! i’m fine, really! this is just a scratch, i’ll be up in a moment!’ even after all his limbs have been hacked off and he’s lying there helpless.

one of the most common narratives around it is that no one realizes they have depression until they start checking off what they consider to be normal aspects of their lives—and personal character flaws— against the checklist for depression symptoms. really key symptoms include:

  1. lack of motivation
  2. constant tiredness, even exhaustion
  3. finding no pleasure or satisfaction in activities they used to like, or that they know should feel good
  4. not seeing the point of doing anything
  5. increased and even unmanageable anxiety and fearfulness

any one of these symptoms drains away your ability to do work, cope with setbacks, overcome difficulties, or stop procrastinating. multiple symptoms create a pretty perfect storm of intertia and anxious self-loathing. you stop doing anything because it’s hard to get going, unpleasant while you’re at it, and afterwards there’s no reward. why bother, right? and when you’re always tired you get conservative of what little energy you can manage, and when you only feel emotions on the ‘empty to miserable’ spectrum you get really aversive to making mistakes. the whole mess very quickly and very insidiously loads every single thing in your life with toxic emotional baggage.   

and then someone says to you— or you say to yourself, ‘stop being lazy’. and that haunts you forever. because you’re lazy! the work is so easy. everyone else does it. everyone but you, you lazy asshole, lying around all day not doing this totally easy thing that you should be able to but aren’t. you don’t have depression! of course not. mental illness is for victims, is for blameless innocent people who can’t be blamed for being so understandably sick. but you can be blamed. you have a character flaw, and it’s getting worse by the minute. 

and that is how people who have been diagnosed, who have been medicated, who have been through therapy, can still spend all day hiding in bed and chewing themselves up over their failure to just somehow magically be a good, healthy, useful person, instead of treating themselves to a sick day and saying ‘yup! it’s depression. i need to be kind to myself.’
