Studyblr Network Wanted!

Hi everyone~ i’m Lotte, a highschooler in the Philippines. This time i’m looking for a studyblr network to join in. 😄 Hopefully, having a study group could increase productivity. Reblog with your networks and how to join!

Winter: Silbermantel V

Helen wanted to have a date again. I thought, she might meet Stuart again.
This is a stack-lot. I wanted to see, if it works as I wanted.

And apparently it does. It is a shop for letters and magazines. (To be owned by the towns new carrier.)

Two twonies (Jeremias Haselnuss and Johanna Sellerie) shared their first kiss.

Helen: “Well that guy is hot… Move aside missy! Elderly romance-sim incoming!”

They went on a date in the market tavern.

It was nothing more than a dinner for two.

Nevertheless they got a nice score.

In an apparent act of attempted intimidation, someone in New York chained a massive cross to Gay Street in Greenwich Village, the LGBTQ neighborhood, on Good Friday. Over the next few days the cross moved to different locations, always chained up so nobody could move it. 

New Yorkers responded the way they know best: by drinking champagne and painting the cross in rainbow colors.

“To be honest, I’m a Christian, and the cross means, love, peace and hope. And it was clear the owner of this cross did not share those values,” Gay St. resident Micah Latter, whose gate the cross was first chained to, told HuffPost. “Whatever [this person’s] point, [it] was lost in translation. Their actions were pointless and annoying.” […]

On Sunday, Latter and ten neighbors and friends gathered to paint the cross the colors of the LGBTQ rainbow flag. They drank champagne and changed the locks so the original owner can no longer move it ― they’re now calling it “The Love Cross.” […]

”Neighbors and strangers came together on Gay St., all approaching the meaning of the cross with different personal views, yet we all shared the same love and support for the community that we bonded over,” Latter told HuffPost. “For two hours on a Sunday, it was just random strangers, tourists, straight couples, gay couples, kids and neighbors spreading love, painting rainbows on a cross, getting to know our neighbors, and drinking champagne on Gay St. It was a magical NYC evening!”

aphroditelesbians, a lesbian blog built on excluding trans lesbians and bi wlw, has 1900 followers. I want to think that tumblr is better than this, and there are more trans inclusive blogs than exclusive on here. 

my goal for this blog is 2000 followers

yes, I know, that’s a lot, and I currently have 0 followers, but hopefully with a little dedication and enough positive reinforcement, I’ll still be able to spread love and happiness to my fellow trans and nb sapphics. 

anyone is welcome to follow, including non-lesbian and cis allies. I don’t know much about being a witch myself, and I just hope I have enough people surrounding me to guide me in the right direction. 

expect lots of trans/nb positivity, art, moodboards, and icons! I may take icon/moodboard requests in the future since I found a pretty decent online photoshop program that’s free!

together, let’s remind everyone what aphrodite is really about!

The 1 Class Band: (Probably) The Rarest D&D Party...

This is something almost everyone’s campaign has, the old troubles of not making everyone the same class.

And this brings up troubles, most of the time…

You don’t want a duplicate of something the party already has. 

The Party already has a Barbarian, a Cleric, a Ranger, a Rogue and a Wizard…

So what are YOU going to play?

Well, to celebrate this month’s “Opposite Day” Theme, we’re flipping the tables…

(Not literally, because I’m not cleaning that up…) 

And encouraging people to run Oneshots, Short Campaigns, or even a full Adventure to Level 20…

All as the same class…

Running A Clever Dungeon Room...

At any time, you can throw six orcs running down a 10-foot-wide corridor at your players’ characters.

That may be a good fight for some parties, but it’s hardly clever. If the orcs suffer ranged weapon fire, not all of them will be able to reach the PCs’ front line, and none of them will be able to reach the PCs’ back line.

A clever encounter takes advantage of the monsters’ or NPCs’ capabilities and tactics. Clever creatures should spend a lot of time thinking about how they might survive an encounter with well-armed PCs.

Six orcs parked behind cover with heavy crossbows, and a gaping pit in front of them— now that might be a challenge.

Four orcs in that situation, plus two on a ledge behind the PCs might be even better. Four orcs running from a rampaging hill giant … well, you get the idea…

Here are six general strategies for maximizing effectiveness of the monsters and NPCs you throw at your PCs.

“I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion. A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman, and child. The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow-men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society.”
