Go on roll20.net and create an account. There are always games being posted up looking for players and a lot of them are fine for newbies :)
A good DM and the player handbook is really all you need to get started. I recommend playing 5e just because it's a bit easier IMO.
Check out Roll20! It's the table top experience online and what I primarily use. If you join, shoot me your username and I'll add you.
And I can be you RPG Sherpa lol, I have a lot of a the guides and manuals saved up for D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder (my go to), though once you get the hang of the basics, I've been told it's normal to keep manuals on tap, just in case.
Yes, stop doing something if it hurts. As I'm learning now, one really needs to be disciplined, and do activities in moderation, if one wants to keep at those activities for longer term.
Do try audiobooks, they are not that bad. If the book is in public domain (or out of copyright), do check for them at Librivox, a volunteer project for providing public domain audiobooks.
I enjoy biographies, although I haven't read one in a fair while. I like history and war books as well. I recently read The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, and now a friend has lent me her copy of Mein Kampf to read, but I'm having a bit of a hard time getting into it.
Dystopian is probably my new favourite. It's also pretty fun to write too!
Hey! I tend to read multiple books at a time--my excuse being that it's a good memory exercise. Currently I'm reading A Dance with Dragons (the fifth book in ASoIaF), Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Rob Pirsig. I recently saw Despicable Me 2, as well and before that I saw This Is the End. I was going to see Superman but at the last minute my friends decided to go see This Is the End. I haven't heard of the Age of Fire series... quickly looks it up But it sounds very good. If I get a chance I will try and get my hands on the books. So what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I didn't feel confident enough to talk about those issues in the chat and possibly many people didn't so here is a book that I would recommend basically to everyone - https://www.amazon.com.au/But-Says-Loves-manipulative-relationship/dp/1741751969/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=but+he+says+he+loves+me&qid=1671624251&sprefix=but+he+says+he+%2Caps%2C238&sr=8-2
This is not a paid link or affiliated link or anything. Read the preface about how this book came about
Welcome to the club 👃
😜😜 Get well soon
Ya know I recently bought a product for my girlfriend actually. It's a nerve simulator that targets period cramps and she says it's the best thing she's ever gotten. Highly suggest you try it out since I know it must suck big time to have cramps.
Amazon, and in case this product isn't available in your country I'm sure with a quick Google search you'll find tons of replacements that do the same function and ship to your country.
Product 2 - is slightly better visually as it's concealable and effective in case you have work or class etc.
10/10 Would recommend for women.
When I had ro move out of town for school, this was an absolute game changer, feel free to dm me too! Maybe we could go to a meet up together!

Hello, My divorce was final in May my ex-wife and I were together for over 10 years.
Shit gets better, it's not a straight path to recovery from the situation. No matter the path you take you'll have good days and bad days, but you'll start to have more and more good days as time goes on.
I'd advise anyone going through a divorce to take a listen / read of this book. Even if cheating wasn't the issue in the marriage.
I'm so damn jealous right now!
Here's what I am coloring in at the moment: this awesome book!
But I only have about 36 color pencils to work with. I should totally buy some crayons next time I go out.
Nope. I use FL Studio 9 for everything I make, no hardware other than my keyboard and mouse. I don't really know what genre to call it other than electronic. You can take a listen here.
I feel like this is an ad to discourage people from using meetup.com and to use this bhive.co service instead. Of course they are going to tell you that meetups don't work but their service will definitely work. It's what they are paid to do.
Humble Bundles are a cheap way to get involved in steam. If you're really poor like me you can get steam and origin games for a buck or so. I'm a bit older than you and live in Central Illinois, but I love philosophy(I'm an existentialist) and wouldn't mind having a new friend online.
hey there Im always up for a nic talk, but for now I would like to invite you to a game of skribbl as a little distraction if youd like to join :)
Well, I hope you spend time going out and peeking your head out.
I can relate to not going out much. I work from home running a few companies and now a days the only time I go outside is to pickup the mail (mostly), go to client meetings and or networking evens (rarely) or the once a month (if I'm lucky) extended family evening. While I get social interaction with the members, partners, vendors and clients. I can't say it is all that personal, after all I'm the boss and or partner to everyone and I'm busy shuffling and hustling.
When I had more time (ala evenings to myself) I'd find interesting social things to do by going onto Meetup.com or other boards like a few subreddits on subjects I'm interested in. I really need to force myself out of my comfort zone a little, and you should too.
You can't change if you don't first get uncomfortable.
Consider random group-based board game meetups. Games not your thing? Consider maybe going to book readings, or cooking talks, or even technology oriented events. There is a woman in tech groups in Portland. Perhaps you could meet fellow tech geeks of the female persuasion and they too could recommend sights to see and events to experience?
(sigh) wishing I had more non-business conversations that weren't with my cat.
best of luck
Oh. 69 years old. Why does that number sound familiar? Must be nothing.
I don't think it'd be as easy as just burying the dead and hoping they stay put when there is a necromancer a few feet away.
I'd be more than willing to partake in these social experiments. If you're so confident you'd survive I say come, have a look at the barren brain I have and see what you find.
Nobody has ever had a look... For all I know there is a Chocolate Factory owned by a chap named Charlie inside of here, don't take my word for it though. Zeehee. I like it. Jeopardy. That name already rings bells in my head, I have never seen it but have heard of it.
Trust me you build up a tolerance to Londoners. We're not that bad. I have something that might help you in the vidja game department! Also in general. Flux! It makes your computer's display color equal to the time of day. So of a night it takes more of a orangey hue in order to make it easier on the eye of a night. It's a great piece of kit, it takes some time to adjust. It's worth it though! :3
Tabletop Simulator and to a lesser degree Roll20 are both useful tools for playing board/pen and paper games through the internet. Roll20 is more specialized for handling TTRPG games so stick with Tabletop Simulator for the most part.
Hey, it sounds like we like some pretty similar games! My interests tend more towards strategy than roguelike but I've definitely gone hard into my share. I've even made one or two myself!
I've been meaning to give Rise to Ruins a try but I'm waiting for a decent sale or the full release (whichever comes first I guess)
Have you ever tried Mindustry by the way? That sounds like it might be up your alley.
here is me quoting my old post:
> https://agar.io You could watch me play (I can stream) or you could play with me in the same team. Discord: dude#9685
> Edit. I'm down to play other random games too
what does it say? it says you can play with me in a team. why are you asking me a question that i already answered in my post unless you're a retard yourself
not to be the party pooper but I'm fairly sure that pic is not actually real. Looks like either something from thispersondoesnotexist.com or just a faceapp girl filter. Take a look at the background, and the hair, it all looks fake at a closer glance.
Here is a list of all the best tv shows on Netflix Canada right now:
Black Mirror is my all time favorite show.
Other shows on Netflix that are must-watch:
There's simple things you can do in that case, then: if you do research over the Internet then put a whitelist firewall on your computer (if you are on Windows check out https://tinywall.pados.hu/) so that you only use what you need, and if you compulsively turn on social media then step away and go outside I guess? If you don't use the Internet for academic purposes then you can just plug it off. It's that simple. There's the Internet and then everything else you can do in life!
And remember that you said all those bad things about compulsive internet usage? Just recall that when you want to go back and turn on reddit: You don't need social media to be happy, rejoice because you don't use it, as if you were cured of a terrible disease!
Good luck bro.
I signed up for and made a profile messaged a few people. I appreciate you telling me about it. I just checked and still havent heard back from anybody. I think most of the problem is jsut the area i live in honestly. I was looking at this https://www.patook.com/Blog/MakingFriends and it shows SC is one of the harder states to make friends in so thats got a lot to do with it. You know its weird the south is supposed to be one of the friendlier areas of the US. But i guess its not very open.....really sucks.
sure I would like to delve into a deep conversation with you. Or rather anyone who posts on this thread. -- is there some way that we could do group chat?? Anyway, I wouldn't really call myself an intellectual, but if I would sure like to try. :D
edit: found this
Check this out : https://tinychat.com/room/gottastudy (password : getstudying)
It's an amazing community with people all over the world and from different fields (medical, biology, computer science, law ...) the users either share their desktop screen or put camera on to avoid slacking while study periods. and eventually they can chat and help each other during breaks :)

I wouldn't mind chatting sometime. I'm rather opposed to Discord and only begrudgingly on Reddit, though. Could we perhaps chat on Matrix? It's free software and has clients available on all the major operating systems. It's even got a web version if you don't want to install anything. I have been interested in getting into programming, and possibly philosophy.
I prefer country and rock music, but I enjoy all genres (except for the 'modern technology' genre, not sure what's that called. it just sounds unnatural to me). I love the umbrella academy so far, up to the fifth episode or so. I watch quite a few shows, although haven't seen supernatural or mr robot yet. I also enjoy memes, one of my favourites is probably this one (it's a meta meme of a popular meme, and, although it's a bit dark, it's pretty great). I also like movies like StarWars. And I don't really play video games either. I'm 17 but turning 18 soon.
PIA is a cheaper alternative and it was the go-to VPN because it was proven in court to not log its users. But it was sold last year to a company that been shown to exploit its users, so Mullvad has become the go-to VPN for privacy minded people. PIA technically hasn't been shown to exploit its users since the transition, but what VPN's are really selling is trust, and they've definitely lost a lot of it.
And yes, if you're looking for something like that, BitWarden is the go-to password manager. It's open-source, which means that its code is up for anyone to view. This means that if there's anything unsavory baked in, there's a higher chance it'd be caught by someone.
Reddit is a great resource btw, so while I think you should delete or inactivate your current account, you could make a separate reddit with a separate email to keep track of certain subreddits, like r/privacytoolsIO or r/Scams (definitely check these subs out). If you don't post and you have a random name, I doubt anyone will ever notice that account. Or you could just browse reddit accountless.
Oh, and this is unrelated to this issue, but you should also get an AV, if you don't already have one.
Thanks for this post, and best of luck to you!
Thank you, I'm glad a lot of more security aspects were brought to life by this but the whole thing freaked me out so I don't think I'll be using reddit in the near future anymore. I'm glad I was able to kinda show everyone some of the dangers though as being really new to this sub I didn't really think about them.
I will also look into Mullvad as I think it's super useful with the KIll Switch and I think that's a great feature unlike other VPNs I've seen.
I'm also going to get something like that so my passwords are more secure as I think that would be great anyway, thank you for recommending it.
Thank you for saying that and thank you for the great advice. You stay safe as well.
I am so incredibly sorry this happened to you. I remember about a month ago I said if you find the friends you were looking for, you should make a post to inspire others and while I'm so sad that this happened instead, you still managed to find the strength to make a post to warn others.
As for a VPN, I'd recommend Mullvad over Tunnelbear. It, unlike Tunnelbear, has the killswitch ability, so if your VPN connection drops for whatever reason, it kills your internet connection so you don't lose protection. Also, you will have to disable WebRTC in your browser, otherwise, even with a VPN, browsers can track you.
And, to make it easier for you to keep different usernames/passwords, you should use a password manager like BitWarden. It can even generate strong passwords for you so you don't have to come up with them yourself.
Again, so sorry this happened to you, but really, kudos on the way you handled it. Good luck, and stay safe!
NordVPN isn't very secure I would go with tunnelbear. They do regular security audits, report the findings, and improve the service. NordVPN has had at least one leak of users personal information and has taken no steps to mitigate the impact or prevent a similar vulnerability in the future.
Change all of your social media acc
Maybe get NordVPN or something to protect your IP address because it's not hard to get it.
make all of your acc private and don't use your face as your profile pic
Well by definition, unique means one of a kind. Even if you say, something that not a lot of people do, I still wouldn't say I have a hobby like that. I would say that a lot of people do most of the things that I do for entertainment. If nothing else, I guess you could say I like to buy interesting toys on Amazon when I see them such as this, but I know that quite a few other people get them so I can't say it's unique at all.
You seem to be a cool person to be hang out with.

Asking since i'm working on Nurture - a free app to automatically check and remind me to consistently reach out to people I care about. Would love to see if it helps others :)
They’re wide brimmed hats. The original one, which I own, is made of 6oz cotton duck - the same as an old fashioned tent. It’s waterproof, sun protective, they tie on, they’re guaranteed for life never to wear out (past life, actually, they encourage you to put it in your will!), and most of all, they’re very classy. The designer says that if you wear one you’re automatically classy, and other wearers will recognise you as a person of good taste. Oh and it floats, and it has a pouch to put an emergency £20 note!
I was given one for my eighteenth birthday, and immediately afterwards I wore it for four months while travelling across Europe on foot. It did not summer sun in England, November thunderstorms in Italy, October in the Swiss mountains and more!
I can’t upload a photo of mine but here’s a link with a photo of me wearing it when travelling: :
I just started it the other day! But I have Stephen Kings 'On Writing' that I've been using as a reference. I'm having a little trouble with my descriptive writing and he says to read a lot to build that sort of skill set.
Currently, I'm busy with school but I am slowly working through Deep Work by Cal Newport. I'm almost at chapter 3. So far I'm not that impressed by it, because I feel I haven't learnt anything new but I've been wanting to read something by him for a while. I strangely haven't read the Book Thief it sounds like something I'd enjoy however
I'm on the same boat. I try lots of things but without others who enjoy the hobby as I do I end up losing interest, which stinks because I may like that particular hobby and want to learn and share with others. I unfortunately live in a neighborhood where people don't like new and different things. I think I'm going to take a gamble and look online for groups in my area who like something I want to try. I just hope they are willing to take in someone new and inexperienced. I like reading and video games as well, so I'm happy to hear you like those. I'm reading a book I never figured I'd try, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I'm going to be getting new furniture soon so I need to get rid of some old things. I'm no hoarder but I like to keep some things that even if I don't use its just a comfort having it there.
I have Sagan's Dragons of Eden and Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors as well. I have a lot of books, I just don't have the attention span to finish them. Some others I have are by Bryson, Dawkins, Oliver Sacks, Brian Greene, Steven Pinker, Daniel Kahneman, etc. Seligman seems to be the authority on positive psychology with his books Authentic Happiness and Learned Optimism. I really enjoy the Complete Idiots Guide to Happiness though too - a lot lighter but more to the point and less about research.
The Hawking book was just on sale at our local bookstore, Chapters. It was on for $19.99 for some reason. It seemed strange since it's fairly new and well, big and illustrated, but it was a lucky find for me.
Oh wow, Predictably Irrational is really interesting. I think I'll add it to my reading list.
I think for the most part, it was because I had no pressing matters to attend. I just bummed all weekend. Eating and doing mindless stuff. It's pretty relaxing to get a break like that when I've been so busy these past months.
What have you been up to?
I'd say, at the moment, it's Python because that's what I know best and use the most.
I'm know PHP as well but can't say I really like it. I'm improving my C, working through Introduction to Algorithms and implementing them. I've got Perl, Ruby, and Scheme on my learn list, trying to learn at least two to a basic standard in the next two and a half weeks.
Sorry, I waffled...
Forty pages. Technically eighty but who's counting? :P
APUSH at my high school is notorious for being extremely work-intense. You know what you're signing up for when you get the textbook the last day of school the year before... as well as a supplemental textbook and one copy each of Uncle Tom's Cabin, The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, The Jungle and The Puritan Dilemma. It was a hell of a lot of summer work.
