Raven Queen Moments

Thanks to @shalizeh7 for the art!

cipherponyjinx asked: How many times has Vax interacted with the Raven Queen and when?                                                                                               Anonymous asked: Given the revelation that Vax is now multiclassing as a paladin, can we get a list of all the Raven Queen moments?

Thank you to Andrew C., Dan R., David T., Fletch, icecream-s-coops, @jeritchie3, @melissamelrita, @mrsgoodreaver, Olivia A., and Rosie-lostbetweenthepages for their help compiling this list!

Thunder Five

A gigantic snub nose revolver chambered in .45 LC & .410 Shotshell. It is not a copy of the Taurus Judge or Smith & Wesson Governor; it predates both of those revolvers. One of the few revolvers that has an ambidextrous safety lever that disengages the hammer. There was a variant with a .45-70 Govt cylinder which was designed to by pass state laws regarding shotgun shell chambered pistols/revolvers. You can actually still find caliber adapters that will allow you to use .22 LR, .380 ACP and 9x19mm in this revolver, making it a fun multi-caliber plinker. (GRH)

Colt 1874 Gatling Gun

Manufactured by Colt Firearms Manufacturing Co. and owned by Thell Reed, supplied for the 2007 remake of Western movie 3:10 to Yuma.
.45-70 Gov 35-round hopper, ten rotating barrels, hand-cranked repeater, seen in the movie on a swivel mount in the back of an armored stagecoach and fired by Pinkerton agents.

For the few out there that have both seen the movie and remembered how this scene unfolded, they also made a rubber prop to be used when the gun was in danger of being damaged.

Henry

Just a few of the new lever action rifles being offered by Henry in 2017.

1.)  H001TLB Frontier: Available in either .22 LR or .22 Magnum, it has a 24″ long threaded barrel for use with suppressors.

2.) H018-410 Shotgun & Carbine: Chambered in .410 gauge, these two shotguns are based on their .45-70 Govt models. Full size version uses a 24″ barrel, the shorter carbine uses a 20″ barrel.

3.) H012AW Big Boy All Weather:  .44 Magnum lever action with polymer stock and handguard, it is finished in matte hard chrome to resist corrosion from the elements. It is much lighter in weight when compared to Henry’s other .44 Mags due to the round barrel instead of octagonal.

i cant believe Donald trump and 10,000 Confederate White Knights materialized in front of me and shot my knees with a 45-70 Brush Gun until my legs fell off.i called an ambulance but they just scoffed and told me “Sorry we don’t help limpdick assholes like you”. and gave Donald and his soldiers 20 ft tall Oscar awards

Old School Tactical – The Metcalfe Cartridge Block for Springfield Tradoor.

In the 1870’s and 1880’s, most nations had decided to adopted breechloading single shot designs over a myriad of bolt action and lever action repeaters.  While such breechloaders were often more powerful and more accurate, the rate of fire with such rifles were limited.  In an attempt to increase the firepower of the infantryman, the United States Army adopted an interesting design called the Metcalfe experimental cartridge block.  Invented by US Army officer Lt. Henry Metcalfe, the design was simple.  A small recess was machined into the forearm of a Model 1873 Springfield Trapdoor and a clip was added to secure the block.  The block held eight .45-70 cartridges, and due to its postion near the breech, made loading much faster than having to retrieve cartridges from a satchel or cartridge box around the waist.  The Metcalfe cartridge block typically had a lid which was secured with a leather strap so that the cartridges would not fall out when not in use.

The US Army would equip 1,008 Trapdoor Springfields with the Metcalfe cartridge block.  In the end they chose not to fully adopt the design.  The Metcalfe cartridge block was also used in limited numbers with other common breechloading designs of the day, such as the Remington Rolling Block, Peabody Martini, and British Martini Henry.

Pre-T Trans* Guys: Nutrition Tips

To naturally decrease your estrogen levels, you can eat/drink:

  • VEGETABLES: Cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, carrots and anything really green!
  • Citrusy things like oranges, lemons, etc. 
  • Nuts (no pun intended)
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Olives/Olive Oil
  • Avocados
  • ASPARAGUS 
  • Flax Seeds
  • Blueberries
  • Fish

Exercises:

  • Swimming
  • Boxing
  • Biking
  • Cardio

Protein Info:

  • 45-70 g of protein a day is normal for males
  • Protein shakes!! (Soy increases estrogen levels, so if you are vegan and you are using protein shakes, I recommend rice shakes) Remember that with protein shakes, if you do not exercise as much as you’re meant to while you’re drinking them, then the muscle will turn right intofat and for most trans* guys, the fat will distribute itself into your thighs, butt, hips, etc. If you’re looking to lose weight, make sure the protein shake you decide to use is high in protein, but low in carbs and calories.
  • It’s recommended that you take your shake 30 minutes AFTER you work out, if you’re not going to work out one day, take it first thing in the morning

A lot of trans* guys are looking to gain weight, and the best way to do that is to obviously eat a lot of carbohydrates and proteins. They not only boost your energy, but help you achieve the weight you’re hoping for. Remember, decreasing your estrogen levels will help you with muscle mass. Decreasing your stress level will decrease your estrogen levels, thus increasing your testosterone levels and making it easier for you to achieve the body you’re working towards.

Also: Alcohol converts your testosterone back into estrogen, so if you’re a trans* guy who likes to drink, it’s probably not going to help out much!
