How To Farm ALL Resources in V Rising 2023 (Gloomrot update!)
Secrets of Gloomrot has brought many new resources to collect, as well as some serious changes to resource farming locations. So, it's time to spotlight the best of them!
This is Aiming4Gaming, and today we're aiming for resource gaining!


This guide originated from my YouTube video, where I show all resource locations in action. If you enjoy watching videos, I would be really grateful if you checked it out and rated it - it would help me a lot!
However, it's also fair to offer something to Reddit, which is why I decided to make a text version of my guide here as well. So, if you prefer text guides, it's right below!
Important note: Reddit post is limited to 20 pictures, so I can't show every location :( I selected the most important locations as reference, but unfortunately that's my limit here. Also, to not overload map with all places, I highlighted typical locations for cotton and other wide-spreaded resource types.
I'll try to group up resources by their purpose.


Farbane Woods

Dunley Farmlands

Gloomrot and Cursed Forest

Silverlight Hills
Copper can be extracted in large quantities from the Copper Mine, along with Hell's Clarion. Don't overlook chests, and remember to consume a worker to boost the resource yield!
Sulfur is obtained from the Bandit Sulfur Quarry. By the way, some nodes are surrounded by explosives, which obliterate them with a single precise shot!
If you require a substantial amount of copper or sulfur at once, the new Trancendum Mine is exactly what you need! However, exercise caution as the enemies there can be formidable.
Whetstones are commonly dropped in Bandit Encampments. The Bandit Armory is also a fantastic place since you can collect not only whetstones but also stone dust, which is essential for crafting whetstones! Whetstones are almost always found in the chests here, and occasionally they drop from barrels or enemies guarding the areas.
Iron can be extensively mined in two locations: the Haunted Iron Mine and the new Iron Cave.
To access the cave, you will need explosives or the bear form. I recommend using the bear form for an additional reason - these mines are guarded by numerous golems, but they won't attack you if you're in bear form! Unless you provoke them first! Additionally, the bear form enables you to break the massive deposits here, which yield a substantial amount of iron! Golems here also drop iron if, for some reason, you desire more from your run.
The Haunted Iron Mine is a much more challenging place for mining, with all the chaos unfolding everywhere! However, unlike the Iron Cave, it contains chests with other valuable items like sulfur, gems, grave dust, and books. Nonetheless, the abundance of enemies and the burning ground make this place less preferable than the Iron Cave. By the way, don't overlook the chests in the tents outside; they usually contain iron ore and other goodies!
The ideal location for Quartz in this update is the Quartz Quarry, which boasts numerous nodes and workers that enhance your resource yield. Also, be sure to check the houses for additional loot!
Scourgestones, along with some mourning lilies and bones, can be found in Dunley Monastery, the Church of the Damned, as well as the houses in Cursed or Ancient Villages.
Dunley Monastery features multiple containers, each typically containing one or more scourgestones. However, this place is protected by holy radiation, which can only be resisted by crafting a holy resistance potion.
The Church of the Damned appears to be easier, as you can collect chests and search graves here.
As for the Villages, you'll eventually need to visit them for ghost crystals anyway, so you can gather scourgestones as a bonus!
Silver can be obtained through two methods. Firstly, there are several nodes in the area to the West of the Silver Mine. Secondly, you can venture into the mine itself by navigating around and accessing it through a secret passage.


Farbane Woods

Dunley Farmlands

Gloomrot and Cursed Forest
Leather and rugged hide can be discovered in the Bandit Trapper Camp, conveniently located near the waygate. This location is filled with cages housing wolves and bears that drop the hides, allowing you to farm them all in one place instead of searching for them in the forests. Don't forget to explore the tents for barrels and chests, which typically contain leather and coarse thread.
Thick hide can be obtained from dogs and various creatures in all regions except Farbane Woods. For example, bears, moose and wolfs in the Hallowed Mountains drop them. Fish oil can be acquired in villages, or you can use blood press to convert fish into fish oil and fish bones.
Pristine hide is dropped by creatures in the Lurker Dwelling. Alternatively, you can pay a visit to Gracefall Village at night. During this time, you can eliminate the villagers when they transform into werewolves, and they drop a decent amount of hides. Ensure that you carry out this task at night, as they revert to their human form with the first rays of sunlight, resulting in human drops instead. This tactic works both ways, allowing you to weaken several villagers, wait for nightfall, and easily eliminate them in their werewolf form to obtain loot for free.
Silkworms can be found in the Spider Cave, where both spiders and cocoons drop them. Cocoons also contain various loot, and sometimes even people and spiders.

Fabricating & Advanced Smelting


Silverlight Hills
To farm mutant grease and tech scrap in the new Gloomrot zone, you can take advantage of the ongoing battles between mutants and humans and collect their drops. These fights occur frequently near the radiated water, providing ample opportunities for gathering resources.
However, the most convenient area for farming is undoubtedly the Pools of Rebirth. Here, you'll encounter large groups of both factions engaged in combat, resulting in quick drop collection.
Another location worth exploring is Rustlock Village, where each house usually contains 1 to 3 containers filled with tech scrap, mutant grease, coins, and scrolls.
Tech scrap and depleted batteries can also be easily acquired in the Trancendum Camps, two of which are conveniently located near the waygates. Simply eliminate the guards and destroy the scrap piles, but exercise caution as some of them may explode.
Gold jewelry can be obtained in Brighthaven, either from chests found in human form or from enemies. However, beware that these enemies are the most formidable foes in the game.


Farbane Woods

Dunley Farmlands

Silverlight Hills
Bones, mourning lilies, and the occasional gravedust are abundant in the Forgotten Cemetery or Infested Graveyard. Make sure to thoroughly search graves and containers, as they often hold valuable items. As a bonus, some graves may reveal rats!
Regular gems can be mined in the Bedrock Pass, as it boasts numerous veins rich in precious stones.
For flawless gems, venture into the veins of the two Harpy Nests located in Silverlight Hills. However, prepare yourself for tough battles, as these areas are infested with angry mobs!
Ghost crystals can be obtained by mining nodes in the Cursed or Ancient Village, both of which offer a plentiful supply. Additionally, spectral dust and other valuable drops can be acquired from mobs or found in containers throughout these locations.


Farbane woods

Dunley Farmlands

Gloomrot and Cursed Forest

Silverlight Hills
The Gleaming Meadows is undoubtedly the best location to gather fire blossoms, blood roses, and snow flowers. You'll find an abundance of them there!
Hell's clarions can be found in Bear Cave, as well as in various mines such as the Copper Mine and Haunted Iron Mine.
For cotton, wool, cloth, sunflowers, and the occasional valuable worker with good blood quality, follow a clockwise route through several farms starting from the waygate and ending at Dawnbreak Village. Wardrobes in these farms often hold copper and silver coins, books, fish oil, and much more. When harvesting crops, it's advisable to use area-of-effect attacks to collect multiple plants simultaneously.
Some farms have garlic protection, which may debuff your vampire, but you can mitigate this by using bear form, increasing your garlic resistance and allowing for faster recovery. Alternatively, you can craft a garlic resistance brew once you've learned the recipe.
Witch huts offer a supply of ghost shrooms.
Sacred Grapes can be found in the Brighthaven Vineyards. You can either cut them from the vines or collect them from containers.
Plague briers are found in the woods of Gloomrot.
However, the most convenient farming spot for plants is your own garden. Simply plant the seeds and easily harvest the plants!
Utilize excess plants as a source of pollen, which can then be converted into coarse threads.


You can obtain paper by farming Bandit Camps, scrolls by looting Militia Encampments and Rustlock Village, and schematics by searching Army Outposts.
However, keep in mind that you already acquire sawdust from processing wood.
By combining sawdust with plant fiber in a paper press, you can efficiently produce paper, which serves as a great farming method. Once you have paper, it can be further converted into scrolls. And if you have a surplus of scrolls, they can be converted into schematics.

Additional Tips

You can construct tombs and vermin nests in order to cultivate certain resources such as silkworms, mutant grease, or scourgestones within your stronghold. However, it's important to note that this method requires the expenditure of other resources, so it's not the same as acquiring them freely in their respective zones.
Additionally, you have the option to dispatch your servants on raids, which can yield a substantial amount of resources in the background. Nonetheless, it's important to remember that these operations are time-consuming and limited to one active raid per zone.
Resource farming becomes significantly easier when you have a worker with a decent blood type. If you happen to have a worker with less than 100% blood quality, you can improve it by feeding them irradiant gruel. This will boost their blood quality by 1% or 2%.
However, it's important to note that there is a 35% probability that your prisoner may undergo a mutation when using this method. So, there is a certain element of risk involved, and you'll need to weigh the potential benefits against the possibility of a mutation.
In the endgame, an alternative to blood extraction is using blood merlot. This option consumes fewer health points and induces less misery, making it a worthwhile choice for acquiring blood resources.


I hope with this spotlight you have achieved what you were aiming for today!
If you want to watch more guides, they can be found on my YouTube channel! I'm doing my best to create guides on both YouTube and Reddit, but I have a full-time job, so it's a bit hard to keep up with everything :(
Anyway, thank you for reading up to this point, and see you later!

2023.05.28 08:33 -Bonjour-- More Madeir

From my travel report (2014):
The second trip to Madeira we made to escape the winter. The weather was like a moody diva in winter. It changes not only from day to day, but also within a few hours. So you can never plan anything for the next day, because you should not think, today it is so nice and sunny and warm, it will be the same tomorrow. But if you are unlucky, the next morning it will be completely cloudy, only to possibly be sunny again in the afternoon.
It is always a pleasure to stroll in FUNCHAL's old town. Here times an ice cream to eat, there a coffee possibly with Nata to take. But this should be done when there are no cruise ships in the harbor. Then you see fortunately more locals than tourists in the streets.
For football fans: Christiano Ronaldo, who comes from Madeira, now has his own museum in Funchal - eagerly visited by his - mostly young - supporters...
Funchal is spreading out more and more - the slopes all around are already built on, and in the hotel zone construction continues eagerly. Although it is obvious that in the newly built apartment houses still very many apartments are empty.
The first two weeks we booked apartment at about 350 m altitude with a beautiful view of Funchal. The disadvantage was that it became - especially in the evening - but quite cool. Fortunately we had not only an electric heater but also a fireplace in the apartment.
From up here you can see how Funchal has grown in recent years. It is a huge sea of houses, which goes up to all the adjacent hills.
For the second part of our stay we had chosen an apartment house at Praia do Formosa with direct view to the sea and also to Cabo Girao.
One of the most beautiful and varied gardens of Madeira is located only about 9 km east of Funchal: the Palheiro or Blandy's Gardens. In 1801, the property was purchased by Count Carvalhal. A hunting lodge was built and the count had exotic trees imported from all over the world. The count's descendants squandered the fortune, and so in 1885 the estate became the property of the Blandy family of wine merchants. The villa above the garden is still inhabited by the Blandy family and is not accessible.
The gardens are famous not only for the variety of (often exotic) plants but also for their location on a 500 m high hill with a magnificent view of the bay of Funchal. The Count's hunting lodge was renovated in 1997 and is now the exclusive hotel "Quinta Velha do Palheiro".
The gardens are divided into the main garden, the sunken garden, the valley of hell (Inferno) with mighty fern trees, the rose garden, the ladies garden and the tea house area. There are also ponds with water lilies and beautiful flower beds.
Some of the numerous trees are 100 years old. The garden has been constantly developed. Hibiscus, bougainvilleas, jacaranda, African tulip trees, coral trees and orchid trees grow here. The Blandy family imported proteas from South Africa and had a rose garden planted and a small baroque chapel built. The gardens are also famous for their numerous camellias and magnolias.
The orchid garden, created by an Austrian, apparently has more than 5000 plants and is located below the botanical garden. At the moment the orchid garden is closed, because in the big fire of 2016 in Funchal not only many houses were destroyed, but also great damage was done to the orchid garden.
Carnival is also celebrated in Madeira and by chance we saw a children's parade. It was interesting to see with which eagerness the children were partly "there". Therefore, there will probably be no problem with carnivalistic offspring in Funchal.
The town of RIBEIRA BRAVA is located at the mouth of a wide - sometimes wild (brava) river (ribeira). From Funchal there is a highway to get there. In Ribeira Brava there is a wide pebble beach, and on the other side of the promenade there are cafes and restaurants. In the historic center there are small stores, and here is also the pink town hall from the late 18th century
The Igreja de Sao Bento was built as early as 1440, but was given a new look during the Baroque period. The spire with the white-blue tile pattern and the sphere symbol of the Portuguese explorers is striking.
We still drove to Punta do Sol. This place lies between two high rocky capes. In the old core there are only a few houses and the church, behind it already begin the terraced banana fields. There is a pebble beach and on the promenade you can have a drink in small cafes. Except for us, there were hardly any tourists in the village. But here we drank the best poncha on the island. Poncha (made of honey, lemon juice and sugar cane brandy) is a kind of national drink on Madeira.
The village of Camara de Lobos - situated between two rocky cliffs - is only 9 km away from Funchal. Camara de Lobos is still a typical fishing village with the many colorful boats (xavelhas) that you can admire in the small harbor. A small church was built at the harbor early on, this was remodeled in 1420 and the current Capella Nossa Senhora de Conceicao was built.
There is still fishing and some boat building in Camara de Lobos. However, these are no longer particularly lucrative, so tourism is now a larger source of income. The fishermen in this area mainly catch the black scabbardfish (Espada), which is offered in many restaurants - also in Funchal.
There is a promenade path from the Lido in Funchal to Camara de Lobos since 2011. The path - always with a view of Cabo Girao - is partly concreted and partly laid out on wooden walkways. If you walk in the direction of Camara de Lobos, you can see the approaching waves of the Atlantic Ocean on the left and the partly high cliffs on the right. Not far behind Praia de Formosa there are some beach bars or restaurants where you can have a drink or eat quite well.
Cabo Girao near Camara de Lobos is one of the highest cliffs in the world. More than 500 m the land here falls almost vertically into the sea. Since our last visit, things had changed here, there was now a large parking lot. Then the cafes and souvenir stores were also new for us. And surprising for us was also the glass viewing platform, which exists since the end of 2012. Here you can see that wine and vegetables are grown on the small rocky outcrops. The farmers can reach their fields on the coastal fringe with a cable car. Before the cable car was built, these fields were only accessible by boat.
From Funchal it was not far to CANICO. The original village became in the course of time one of the most important tourist places on Madeira. Large hotel complexes, apartment buildings and villas were built. However, we turned off before we reached the town in order to get to Ponta do Garajau. There on a rock cliff is the 14 m high Christo Rei statue, which was erected in 1927. From here you have a beautiful view of Funchal. Since 2007, there is a cable car nearby that goes 200 m down to the pebble beach.
CURRAL DAS FREIRAS is a small village nestled between huge almost vertical mountain slopes in the heart of Madeira. There is only one road that leads serpentine to the 633 m high valley. Originally the valley was inhabited by nomads and shepherds. Towards the end of the 15th century, the land became the property of the nuns of the Santa Clara convent.
The name Curral das Freiras means "pen of the nuns". In the 16th and 17th centuries, the island was repeatedly attacked by pirates, and the nuns retreated here to the protection of the mountains, which are up to 700 meters high. Here people still live from what they grow themselves on their fertile fields. One of the specialties of the village is chestnuts. They are used to make liqueur, cakes, bread and soups, which are also sold to tourists. On November 1 of each year, the Chestnut Festival is held here.
Not many tourists come to SANTA CRUZ, although this place is certainly worth a visit. There is quite a pretty old town with the church of San Salvador built in 1533 as well as like a large modern market hall just behind the long gray pebble beach lined with date palms.
Just north of Santa Cruz is Madeira Island's airport, renamed "Cristiano Ronaldo" Airport in 2007. Opened in 1964 and reconstructed in 2000, this airport is one of the most dangerous in the world. The 2777 m long runway is built on the rocky coast above the water and looks like a bridge with large concrete supports. A large parking lot has been built below this runway.
Before the landing approach, the mountain massif must be overcome so that the narrow runway can be approached. Unfortunately, there have been numerous accidents, but this is still one of the busiest airports in Portugal.
From Santa Cruz we drove to MACHICO, one of the larger towns of Madeira. Machico profited from sugar cane cultivation in the 15th century and is now a modern town, which is divided into two halves by the Ribeira da Machico. On the eastern bank of the river is the historic fishing quarter with the main square surrounded by tall laurel trees.
The town church of Nossa Senhora da Conceicao in the center was built in the 15th century and partially rebuilt in the 18th century. Opposite stands the town hall built in the early 20th century There are several fish restaurants here.
In the surroundings of the small village FAIAL there is still a lot of agriculture, e.g. wine and fruit growing. The village is dominated by the 600 m high Eagle Rock. Only a few tourists come here, because there is hardly anything worth seeing.
Most people come to Santana to see the famous "Casas de colmo". In total there are still about a hundred of these thatched historic wooden houses. They are very scattered throughout the municipality.
On the way back to Funchal we passed through Ribera fria. Here you can take a short hike up to the Miradouro dos Balcoes, from where you have a beautiful view of the mountains.
The peninsula PONTA DE SAO LOURENCO is 9 km long and 2 km wide. In 1982 it was declared a nature reserve, mainly to ensure the preservation of the fauna with the great variety of birds and the great occurrence of the native flora. The eastern tip of Madeira is barren and windy. One can no longer imagine that everything here was lushly forested.
Then, in spring, a carpet of flowers enlivens the bare hilltops. But also in other seasons the turquoise sea and the rocks in different shades - ocher, rust, gray and green-black - bring color to the area.
The south coast can be easily approached by boats, which is almost impossible on the drastically shaped north coast with its strong winds. There is a paved access road to the parking lot above Baia de Abra. Here you can also take the public bus.
From there there is a popular rocky hiking trail. This hike is absolutely not a walk. There are some climbs, often wooden stairs. You have no shade and are exposed to gusts of wind. To avoid being blown down somewhere, I ducked down and waited out the sometimes strong gusts - really quite extreme.
At the narrowest point with a land bridge only a few meters wide, the rock drops almost 100 m vertically - fortunately the place is secured with a fence.
The hike takes - depending on your condition - 2 to 3 hours. It also depends on whether you only walk to the plateau of Casa Sardinha - administration of the national park - or if you want to make the ascent to Pico Furado. Below the Casa there are some tables for picnics. From there there is also an entrance for swimming, which can certainly be pleasant in the summer.
On the way there are always beautiful views of the sea and the rock formations - e.g. the so-called rock gate. On the south side you can see the cages of a fish farm in the sea. In front of Sao Lourenco there are two small islands, on one of them stands the oldest (from 1870) lighthouse of Madeira.
From the cape we drove to CANICAL, the easternmost municipality of Madeira. This place is still characterized by fishing and boat building. Fishing boats are still built here and there is a large repair yard.
Over the 1000 m high Encumeada Pass we drove northeast to Sao Vicente. Unfortunately the old coastal road to Seixal and Porto Moniz was closed and we had to drive through many tunnels. A few years ago it was a special experience to drive on the narrow and winding ER 101 directly at the coast - on one side the high cliffs and on the other side the sea. But apparently the road has become too dangerous in the meantime because of constant falling rocks.
We got to Porto Moniz , and unfortunately the weather got worse, more and more clouds came up. The sea raged with huge waves to the shore. Porto Moniz is a nice little town located on the northwestern tip of Madeira, a region with high mountains and views of the endless Atlantic Ocean.
From Porto Moniz you can go hiking, for example on the coastal trail "Levada da Ribeira da Janela", one of the best hiking trails in Madeira.
Porto Moniz is known for its volcanic pools. Daytrippers mostly come for these pools filled with sea water.These pools owe their formation to a lava tongue that flowed into the sea here thousands of years ago, creating caves due to the force of wind and waves. The black basalt lava pools form swimming pools and are the attraction of Porto Moniz, because you can swim (swim) in them very well - at least in good weather...
There are two different lava pools in Porto Moniz: the completely natural pools and the western pools, which have been transformed into natural outdoor pools - there are no sharp rocks here. The surrounding rocks of the outdoor pool were built as a terrace , and here you can sunbathe. The pools are open every day - even in winter. But when we were there, there was no one in the water....
The natural pools are not safe because of the black sharp basalt rocks. It is very interesting to watch the waves as they crash against the rocks. The water is sometimes whirled into the air in such a way that it looks like a geyser.
The PICO DE ARIEIRO is the most visited mountain of Madeira, because it is the only one that has been opened up with a road, but it is only the third highest. The road was probably built primarily for the observatory and not necessarily for the tourists. Already the approach through pristine landscape with rugged rock and sparse vegetation is an experience.
If the weather is good, you have a breathtaking view all around. Equally beautiful, however, is the sight of white cushions of clouds hanging between the high mountains. In winter there can be ice and snow on the peaks. Since it had snowed on Madeira about 2 weeks before our trip there, we could still see the sparse remnants on the shaded layers.
From Pico de Arieiro you can hike up to Pico Ruivo (1861 m) if the weather is good. At the beginning, the path is quite wide and in places secured by railings. Some then walk at least to the first viewpoint - the rocky peak Niho de Mata with beautiful views. The entire hike up to Pico Ruivo is clearly difficult, even if there are partially secured stairways since the 1960s. Some of the paths are steep up to 700 m, the rock steps are high, the paths are sometimes narrow and beaten, and it also goes through unlit tunnels. So you should have a good condition and be free from giddiness and sure-footed.

Behind every flashback is another two flashbacks ready to take its place, and the high highs and low lows of Toei's experimentation with the production of the anime - Manga reader first impressions of the anime - Dressrosa Saga


Dressrosa is the first mega arc in the series, and it had a ton of moving parts throughout the whole thing. Every time I felt like I was making a solid dent in the episode count I would look at my list and realize I'm barely halfway through. The pacing is obviously the most notorious thing about this arc in the anime. And when it was bad, it was every bit as bad as people say. But there were also some gems and some genuinely great additions too. This arc is definitely the turning point to what we see today which is the best the anime has ever been, with great additions like the Episode of Sabo and other quality flashbacks. But there are some absolutely horrible rough patches to get through before the anime reaches that level of quality consistently, and this arc being the experimentation phase for that definitely hurts the anime version a bit.

Dressrosa Saga


I've been reading the manga weekly since Zou, but I've been trying to watch every piece of animated One Piece content before catching up to see how the anime has developed over time. My interest in how the current anime is being used and incorporating a bunch of stuff that isn't in the manga with a much higher quality level made me want to watch weekly, but I didn't want to just jump into the current anime. So I'm watching everything; movies, filler, specials, basically anything that's on MyAnimeList and that I can find online. Been an enjoyable experience, which you can read about in the previous threads:
How tf did I finish Dressrosa in two weeks? I'm shocked.

Anime Arcs


King Riku flashback was easily the most jaw dropping part as far as the adaptation goes, amazing two episodes
You know, one of the main things I'm noticing going back through the story. People really owe Franky more respect. He's really had some great moments that seem to just go under the radar with the community. I did not remember at all that Franky was the one who told Luffy we gotta stay and fight Doffy after hearing the backstory of what happened. I remembered Luffy basically giving the order for everybody to split up, but I didn't remember Franky being the one to put his foot down about it. I've always loved every Straw Hat, but I feel like everybody else in the crew has their pockets of the fandom that love them. Then there's Franky who I'm pretty sure is objectively the least popular. Just sucks that his best moments seem to always go under the radar.
Speaking of the flashback, man the anime made Riku's flashback absolutely brutal. Obviously there's no non-brutal way to have the king massacre all of his people. But the way they animated it, honestly the darkest episode of One Piece imo. Parents holding their deceased kids while the fire is all around, kids crying with their dolls in hand cause their parent is dead, just super fucked up. And it really set the tone for the rest of the arc.
I'd be avoiding the elephant in the room if I did not address the pacing of this arc that became infamous as it was going on. I feel like when talking about the pacing, it really has to be split into 3 parts in my opinion. Personally, I didn't feel like the pacing of the Colosseum was that bad. It was a little tiring to see the same blonde woman cheering every fucking episode of the Colosseum since they apparently only animated 3 crowd reactions (if nobody said something unique about what was going on). But to me I felt like the Colosseum was moving at a pretty consistent pace forward, and the length of that part was mostly based on how many different places the crew was split up between everybody and Law. It's not fast by any means, but it felt like it was just a complex moving story with a lot going on. And I don't really have an issue with that. From the arc beginning to Sabo getting the fruit, I had no real complaints with the pacing.
Now... the second third of the arc. Oh. My. God. It's so bad. From the time Sabo revealed himself up through the Law flashback, it's unbearable. I don't have an issue with naturally fitting filler, I think doing filler that naturally fits with the manga storyline is great and really helps bring it to life rather than sticking page to page with the manga. It's one of the main reasons I'm doing this, because Wano seems full of the type of filler that I think works well for an anime even if it's moving a little slower than the manga (especially one as dense as One Piece). And there were some great bits of added filler in this section. I really enjoyed Sabo vs Fujitora which was definitely extended from the manga, and I enjoyed how they added on to Rosinante's death with the executives beating the shit out of him (that was offscreen in the manga). And it also seems like they've added a decent amount onto stuff like the civilians fighting each other because of Doffy's strings. I enjoy stuff like that though, I think it adds onto the vibe of the story (I typically only have issues with that type of time filler in a seasonal show where there's a very set amount of time to tell the story before being gone for a year or more). And that type of content was also there in the first third, which I think is why I didn't really feel like it was slow. For example, there's a scene where Fujitora meets Zoro at the beginning of the arc and walks by him with Zoro clearly understanding this guy is strong. While it was there to fill time because Fujitora walks so slow, it worked and was a cool bit of introduction on top of his canon introduction. That stuff works, manga page count be damned.
But that is FEW AND FAR BETWEEN what they did in the second third of this arc. The amount of times that characters just stare at each other with zero reaction and zero sound effects, you would think the fucking stream is buffering. There was a time where Cub called for those yellow cab Tonttata bugs, and then he just waits. No sound effects, no movement, he just sits there for 10 fucking seconds waiting for the bugs to start flying into the screen. You would think it's a gag where two people stare at each other bewildered, but it happens so often it legitimately seems like everything froze. It's to the point that I'm impressed.
Moving on to the final third of the arc, I'd define that as Law's flashback, the executives fighting the Grand Fleet boys, and the rest of the end of the arc. I felt like it got back on track here and didn't really have any complaints for the rest of the arc. Obviously some slower moments here or there, but I felt like it went back to adding actual good filler and not just staring aimlessly into each other's souls. Like the flashback of how the Donquixote Family was formed was amazing, they really beefed up the whole thing in comparison to the manga. Overall when it comes to the pacing of Dressrosa in the anime, my final takeaway. It wasn't bad for literally the entire arc, but the middle section of the arc between Sabo's reveal and the Law/Corazon flashback was god awful and well deserving of the reputation it has in the community. I look forward to getting more good filler that I know is on the horizon after this arc and less of the dumpster fire that the middle of this arc was.
Alright, pacing stuff over. Feel like I covered the subject enough, let's get back to the story. Wanted to talk more about the character moments. Starting out with Usopp; him running away from the Tontattas was still just as aggravating as always. It's just so bad and feels so beneath him at that point of the story to run away from his allies, and I hated how eager he was to essentially run while they weren't looking. It took huge guilt trips for him to not leave them all to get literally squished to death, which is just crazy. Any time prior to Enies Lobby I think this storyline would work, but he basically called Rob Lucci a pussy at Enies Lobby fully knowing Lucci was going to kill him if Luffy didn't get back up. So I just don't get this and it really did feel like it brought him backwards as a character. I get the intention of his storyline is that he's not a hero, I just don't like how eager he was to turn his back and run away even prior to Robin getting turned into a toy. All that being said, I did get a little emotional when he turned back to save them and started telling them his real name. I just don't like the journey to get to that moment. I do also feel like it was a bit of a weird choice to have him taking down Sugar be a total accident because the grape was too hot, it just kinda stripped away the moment a little bit in comparison to something like the Perona fight (who also lost in a similar way, but thanks to Usopp gritting it out and coming out on top). The Observation Haki moment was really good though obviously, and I liked how nervous the anime made him when it came to making that shot to emphasize how big it was. Great moment, Luffy never needs to know, love it. But I do still wish that the initial save of the toys was him doing something himself and not him falling backwards into the save, just to have him get a moment up there with saving Robin at Enies Lobby.
One thing I keep noticing with this arc is that they really did beef up the backstories a lot. Obviously this arc has a ton of backstories and flashbacks, like I referenced in the title. And especially backstories that kinda surprise the audience because they're way stronger than you'd expect to explain the most meaningless quirky personalities. Baby 5's was good, obviously Senor Pink's was incredible, I brought up Doflamingo's already, Sabo's, the King Riku massacre was crazy, Law's. I really enjoyed the consistent attention to detail to bringing those backstories to life, I think they knocked every flashback out of the park in this.
The ending notes of the arc were also really good as far as added content. Like I brought up, the Sabo flashback was great with the added notes from Oda (honestly the whole arc felt like it had a lot more Sabo than the manga), and the outside of Dressrosa stuff was great too. Really liked what they did with the crew on Zou with the additional content, and obviously Kaido falling and Doffy's speech are some of the best moments in the whole series.
Overall it definitely took a bit of time for this arc to get going, but expected of an arc that is over 100 episodes. There were multiple times I looked at the episode count during this and was shocked how many episodes I had left, it's just a really dense arc with a lot of moving parts. But the end really makes the whole thing worth it. Obviously the fight itself, but even stuff like the people dancing after the arc, Kaido's debut, and Law speaking with Sengoku about the Will of D. And I've always loved that it ends with "Opening Speech" from Doffy. It feels conclusive, but at the same time it's pointing out that there's so much more to come. One of the best closing monologues of the series, right up there with Vivi's goodbye.



My jaw hit the floor during this beautiful opening animation.
Whoever directed this movie is a sick individual and also my new favorite person. The cold open for this movie was crazy. It just runs through Marineford in that new style (like most of these specials that go over older content). And they get to that iconic moment when Ace is holding Luffy with the fire all around them talking about how he never listens... only to IMMEDIATELY transition to Akainu with his fist through Ace's chest. No build up, no Luffy and Ace vs the Marines, none of that. Just an immediate skip to Ace with a hand in his chest. They lulled you in because it was like a solid 5 minutes of running through recap stuff from Marineford just to jump to Ace getting punched. My jaw was on the floor.
Onto the rest of the movie, I enjoyed it. Byrnndi World was actually a pretty solid villain (honestly I'm curious if this was Oda's way of introducing the concept of the Rocks Pirates to us), and I thought it fit in pretty well to the canon. I feel like Luffy is at his best when somebody hurts somebody else who is supposed to be their friend, it just gets under his skin to a level that he loses it. And that's how this story went. And the introduction of Red Hawk for the first time was cool. Bit of a slow start after the initial intro, but once it hit its stride I thought it was pretty enjoyable and fit pretty seamlessly with the series.
Episode of Sabo

Very enjoyable to see Dressrosa from Sabo's perspective, and you can tell that this was definitely Oda's work that he didn't get to include in the manga.
This was an amazing special. You can really tell that Oda and Toei put some love into this one, considering this special was something Oda wanted to put into the manga but simply didn't have the time to squeeze in. When Sabo tells his story to the crew after Dressrosa, you can tell that this was essentially the rest of the flashback that we didn't get to see. If you took this exact plot and just imagined it with black bars around the side of the pages, I feel like you as a viewereader can see the flashback in your head. And I personally feel like you can really tell that this is the turning point for the anime where they realize that the anime can be added content onto the manga that Oda simply cannot cover as a human being trying to finish the story in a reasonable timeframe. What we're seeing now in full force in Wano where there's stuff in the anime that Oda just skipped over in the manga, that started here with this special. And I appreciate the anime taking that route and hope it continues even past Wano.
I'm very curious how Sabo found Ace's grave and knew where to go, but just seeing him get to have that moment was a great start to the movie. And watching him slowly realize that Luffy is in Dressrosa too and thinking about how they grew up, it was a great use of flashback that didn't feel overbearing or like it was stalling for time to make the special longer. It all felt like it fit. The thing I really appreciated about this special though that puts it over the top is that they went the extra mile reanimating a bunch of stuff that they didn't have to do at all. This whole special is basically just Dressrosa from Sabo's side, so you would think going into it that they just add some scenes with Sabo onto stuff that they had already animated. Essentially just splicing some Sabo scenes onto what they had already released, kinda similar to Mugen Train in Demon Slayer where they released the anime version with a couple new scenes and a bonus prologue episode spliced onto the movie to make it anime ready. But no, that's not what they did at all. They completely reanimated a bunch of stuff into this special. Luffy vs Don Chinjao was a completely reanimated fight in this, and I loved having Sabo watch over that fight like a proud older brother. And there were other scenes throughout this too that you could tell were animated from scratch, like parts of the Ace, Sabo, Luffy flashback. Obviously they didn't literally do the entire movie from scratch, but they did far more than I ever expected coming into this for what is essentially 50% a recap episode for the stuff Sabo isn't involved in. That extra effort for stuff that had nothing to do with the focus of this as a Sabo special is what makes me give this a 10/10, really appreciated the work they put into this one.
Long Ring Long Land Abridged

This does not exist.
No video of this exists on the internet. And I'm honestly just impressed that something that came out in December of 2015 for one of the most popular anime of all time just straight up went missing. Not some random OVA from 2001, but a tv special from 2015. Only Foxy is capable of that feat. This special is apparently just the original footage of Long Ring Long Land but in a recap style video, so let's just pretend. Wasn't it crazy when the thing happened and then the thing, and then Luffy did the thing? Sick.
Adventure of Nebulandia

Robin and Nami gambling over Straw Hats winning competitions between themselves was a cute moment, can't convince me that isn't a thing that happens all the time.
Foxy and Luffy is the greatest rivalry in One Piece. At the end of the Grand Line we're going to end up seeing the two of them drinking under cherry blossoms like Roger and Whitebeard talking about their adventures. Honestly I don't think this special was that bad. A little long for what was going on, but I thought the story was fine. The villain was fine for the purpose of the movie and was pretty competent at what he was trying to do. And for whatever you want to say about Foxy in the story and the filler, he didn't feel like an overdone gag character in this special. Obviously he's only shown up the one time in the manga, but he's shown up a lot in the anime. They end with a lot of mutual respect between the two of them and their bond as captains trying to save their friends. I think it was the Foxy's Revenge Arc where I brought up that I kinda liked that Foxy seemed cool at the beginning of the arc, but it sucked cause they went right back to the gag. So I appreciated in this one that at the end he has genuine respect for Luffy and stops just being a random gag villain. If this special is the last time Foxy is ever around in the anime, I thought it was a really good conclusion to his and Luffy's relationship.
Still want Blackbeard to steal his fruit though.

Chapter 16 - The trial of body
The white mist – the ubiquitous substance of the highest levels of arcane world-bending, powered by the force of divinity – it was but a veil to what was to come. Barely had the party of five passed through the shrouded barrier before they witnessed a new sight. It was a realm of endless sunset, shining above a bleached city. The sight was astounding – kilometers upon kilometers of the colorless buildings, erected not from stone, but salt.
“Girls? Everyone’s still here?” Keyaruga asked, afraid to lose his senses in this accursed fog. Even if it subsided a little, one could still be trapped in its obscurity. He turned around, fully expecting to find himself separated from his group. At least, his golden egg was still with him.
“Setsuna’s here!” Ellen reported, holding onto her new glorified anti-stress toy. Which was just as endearing, as it was strange. After all, where are the rest?
“Freia? Eve?” The man yelled, grabbing the she-wolf by her wrist, just to keep her and his ‘sister’ near.
“Dissipare!” Well, that didn’t last long. Not only did the sorceress notify everyone about her presence with a loud chant, she also slammed the salty pavement with her staff. The wave of gold rippled across the vicinity, dissipating every last trace of the veil that Caladrius had placed on them. “Huh, finally! We’ve been seeking you for hours…” The heroine lamented, holding Eve by her hand.
“Hours? We’ve just entered this…” The healer mused, but he couldn’t finish the line, as the black-winged girl towards on him, hugging his torso, barely holding her tears.
“I thought… I’ve lost you forever!” The verdant woman exclaimed, her eyes wet with unshed tears, unwilling to let go of the red-eyed lad.
“Heh, welcome to hell, kids! I suggest we all hold our hands, so that this plague-spitter can’t bamboozle us anymore.
“Uh-huh. Good plan.” The wolf girl agreed, making sure the man’s grip on her wrist wouldn’t waver.
“I don’t like this place already. This thing… this realm – even time itself doesn’t flow properly here.” The elder princess complained, who was now holding onto Eve, who, in turn, wouldn’t let go of Keyaruga.
“Well, that’s a good start, don’t you think?” The hero scoffed, activating his jade eye. Everyone was here, but nobody smiled at his sarcastic joke. Not really surprising, seeing as Caladrius almost succeeded in cutting off Freia, the only one who possessed the proper insight about pocket dimensions, and substantial firepower enough to actually oppose the feathered deity. “Alright, let’s keep it this way. Setsuna, I need your senses. I need your eyes and ears in case I miss something here.” The man, being a cold-blooded leader, shared his first order.
“Uh-huh, already doing it.” The huntress responded, giving a brief glance over at Ellen, who frantically looked around. She recalled the last night, thought about it. The two of them weren’t truly lovers, they weren’t even friends. Setsuna just found herself to be a pillar of the princess’ emotional stability. There wasn’t love, like that between her and Keyaruga, nor the camaraderie that she and Freia shared. All she did was to not deny Ellen’s passion, that’s all.
“Good. Freia, use your heat vision, just in case.” Then, there was the second instruction from the lad. Although this one…
“I already did. Aside from us, there’s nothing, no sources of heat. Either we’re alone here… or whatever can live here doesn’t produce warmth.” The magician assumed, constantly draining magic with her staff. Absorbing energy here felt like breathing in the mountains… “The mana is thin here, so be careful about that too.”
“Hmm… I guess, Ellen was right. Caladrius indeed drains everything around her.” Eve deadpanned, sounding a little depressed. It was her trial, and yet, it awoke nothing but primal fear in her soul.
“I can’t hear anything.” The ice warrior reported calmly. Now, with the fog being blown away by Freia’s power, only the eerie cold void surrounded them under the fixed sun. No enemies to fight, no voices to be heard, only the empty towers of salt loomed above the contenders.
“I sure hope we haven’t messed up with the date.” Keyaruga contemplated, moving across the seemingly endless street. “As for now, I suppose, we have nothing better to do than just walk through that avenue.”
“What else can we do? Seems like this pigeon’s just being shy.” The younger princess chuckled, looking around her. The buildings, although made from the same material, were of eras long before the present day. Their architecture betrayed the early culture of the southern Jioral lands, Tarnia, the ancient kingdom to the west of it, some belonged to the lands of Garalis, but for the most part – it seemed like someone went and stole the buildings, or entire districts even, from the various regions of Tenanulic. “Heh, seems like our prey is a serious connoisseur of improvised urban development projects. Too bad nobody told her laying everything in a single pile, with all the buildings overlapping each other, is unaesthetic at the very least.” Ellen commented with a mix of awe for the highly detailed recreations, and outright mockery for the lack of originality.
“Well, at least we won’t get tired of the view anytime soon.” Freia tried alleviating the situation with some light humor, and this one had worked much better than Keyaruga’s sneering.
“I’d rather we get out of here.” Well, almost. Eve still felt incredibly uncomfortable: the weight of responsibilities, the stress, the shame for the previous night, when she failed to satisfy her guardian – all of that weighed on the shoulders of the queen-to-be in this dead city.
“Don’t be sad, birdie. As long as we stay together, we can handle it.” Keyaruga said, facing the girl with his the right eye closed. His eyeball rolled inside, making sure the supreme god of these lands wouldn’t steal his companions without the lad noticing.
“I hope…” Eve muttered, averting her gaze from the man’s face. After all, the thick nerve bulged though his shut eyelid.

Two hours. Two hours of unending walking throughout the endless maze of salt which ultimately lead them to nowhere. The road was still there, but the architecture seemed more and more obscure. No longer were the buildings layered on top of one another some sort of bizarre exception, as every house the party had come across was seemingly the work of a twisted genius, that defied not only common sense, but the rules of the physical universe themselves. Inverted structures, mosaics of unimaginable forms, some of them even seemed as if they were something from a different dimension entirely.
“Well, girls? What do you make of it?” Keyaruga, getting mentally tired of the unending walking, asked of his allies, right as Freia gave each of them a cup of water she had conjured.
“I think, it’s something right out of our dreams. In all honesty, aside from the mortal danger, I like this place.” Freia, being a beacon of enthusiasm, voiced her excitement. To her, this was a place of learning and perpetual astonishment.
“Ye-e-eah! I know a few archaeologists, who’d kill just to visit here.” Ellen added, trying to keep her own curiosity in check. After all, who could guarantee that she’d find a way back after leaving the road? “Too bad it belongs to the worst pigeon I’ve ever known.”
“Her name is Caladrius.” Eve spoke sternly, cautious of disrespecting the god in her own domain. “And she’s…”
“She’s trying to starve us.” Setsuna concluded, stomping on the salty pavement under her feet.
“That’s right. We won’t attain anything just by loitering around.” The fallen warlady judged, approaching her elder sibling. “Sister, break this illusion already! I’m getting tired of this crap!”
“Hm… Keyaruga, what would you say?” The sorceress, uneager to make hasty decisions based on Ellen’s bias, asked the most reasonable man around (and the only one as well).
“Do it, Freia. We need to find the god bird anyway.” He responded sternly. His jade eye worked as intended, but it showed nothing but an endless wasteland of salt and mist.
“Be ready.” Setsuna spoke to Eve, holding her shoulder now.
“He-heh… Ready…” The kokuyoku scion muttered, expecting to face her doom. Well, at least it would be swift, unlike this endless marching under a still sun.
The Hero of Magic stuck her staff into the ground and began chanting. Her words, unlike regular spells, were practically indistinguishable from each other, more like the blabbering of a mindless old hag one would think of when imagining a stereotypical witch rather than what Freia actually was. The plane began to ripple, the salt – crack, revealing the glimpses of the real world, its mountains and the morning luminary.
“Oh shit…” Ellen cursed with a nervous grin on her face. Right as the valley began crumbling in on itself, the mist thickened, dark clouds began forming above the party. “FREIA! MAGPIE! SHIELD US!!!” The princess screamed. Although it was still only slightly cold, a peculiar snow began falling from the sky.
“Finally!” The healer spat through his teeth, casting a green sphere with a brand of a blue bird above it. He was the first to react, thus covering his party with the dome of protection, but the ground began to rumble, completely breaking the sorceress from her concentration, as now she struggled to stand on her feet.
“Keyaruga, look!” Eve yelled, pointing on the tower rising in front of them. No, not tower… “It’s Kinacrith!” The entire city emerged on top of the ruins, erupting from the earth itself in a deafening roar.
“We must get over there quickly!” Ellen deadpanned, pointing at the mighty citadel of the Obsidian Throne. Or, at least, its copy. The harbinger of plague decorated her realm based on the lands she brought to peril, and now, she had a proof of that – her white feathers brought doom to this city in the first world. “There she… Auch!
“Tch! I know!” Keyaruga exclaimed, grabbing Ellen underneath his armpit. Now, under the snowfall of death, they had to act fast. After all, the man couldn’t hold off the diseased flakes, their corruption overtook his barrier, spreading through his right arm to the rest of the body.
“Keyaruga, you’re dying!” Eve stressed, looking at the lad’s pale face. He, Freia, Setsuna, and the queen-to-be ran forward, but it seemed like Caladrius specifically targeted the hero, trying to break his defense.
“I’m fine! Georgius helps…” The man replied, although it wasn’t his usual voice that left his bluish lips. It was a growl, a wheeze, a…
His immunity didn’t work. Panakea blessed him with invulnerability to all poisons and maladies, but this was something else. A divine plague, an aliment of legends which shifted its form every second, preventing any attempts at getting used to its ruinous effects.
In the end, Keyaruga’s barrier fell, corroded by the godly affliction, and the piles of snow, which, upon a closer look, turned out to be ash, now were about to fall onto the rest of the group. Georgius, his disembodied divine armament, had run out of ambient mana, and so, the man had crumbled, and with him – Ellen now crawled on the ground, calling for him, but her words were silent for the healer.
“R… ru…” And then, his vision got dark. This time, the death came for him for sure. This time…
“Venite in auxilium nostrum, o magnus ventus Aquilonis!” Freia yelled, waving her staff of the blood tree above her head. Through the breach she conjured into this world, the sorceress summoned a great spirit of northern wind to swipe the poisoned powder out of the air. The mighty storm formed a vortex above the party, allowing for the brief respite.
“Come on, get up!” Eve snarled, working with Setsuna to pick the lad up.
“Now, fast! I can’t keep it up for long!” The heroine alerted, tossing a potion of green and red to Ellen. “Drink it, Elly! We’ve got much running ahead of us!”
“Pfeh, as if I don’t see that.” The crimson-haired girl scoffed, heading after the rest of the group.
The snowfall and the storm, the flakes of plague, suppressed by the great element of air accompanied the contenders on their path toward Kinacrith’s copy, erected from the salt.
“Ghh… I… how long-?..” Keyaruga woke up soon afterwards. With the immaterial gauntlet having healed his poisoned body, he found himself among a city comprised of proper forms and shapes, but his vision was still blurry.
“Keyaruga?.. HE’S ALIVE!!!” Eve yelled, obviously trying to outcry the tempest. Unfortunately, though, the girls had no time to celebrate, as all of them had to outrun the time itself, making sure the snowfall of death wouldn’t bury them underneath.
“Setsuna… Eve…” When the lad completely came back to his senses, he found out that he was actually being carried by these two, but his legs were dragging along the floor. “It’s alright! I can run myself!” He broke free, regaining his leading position in this mortal race.
HOW DO WE STOP IT?!” The black-winged prodigy loudly asked… well, whoever could hear it in this deafening hell of wind and plague.
“Haa… Haa… THE TOWER! ABOVE IT!!!” Ellen pointed out, spotting a small white ball on top of Kinacrith’s peak. “IT’S HER!!! SHOOT THE FUCKER!!!” The princess urged, demanding destruction. As much as this order was born out of fear and confusion, there was a logical reason behind it. After all, if this was a test, then surely the cruel mistress of this place desired to be found.
A-A-A-A-AGH!!! HURRY!!! THE WIND IS GETTING WEAKER!!!” Freia cried, barely holding her staff in the air with her trembling arm. Another few seconds, and the ambient mana would make it explode into bloody pieces.
EVE!!!” The Hero of Healing yawped, sending beam after beam of light magic into the sphere. Most of the projectiles, sent by the man, couldn’t hit the spot. The ones that did, though, only chipped away its shining shell.
HASTA LUMINIS!!!” The girl joined the bombardment. She joined forces with her guardian, and together, they brought enough firepower to just barely break through whatever protection the creature had set off. As Setsuna prepared to raise a dome of ice, and Ellen just silently prayed for her team, the hero and his queen finally succeeded. Finally…
The bright and powerful explosion destroyed not only the sphere, the endless city of salt and void crumbled into nothingness. It was as if the glass dome began scattering in the wind, and with it, all the clouds and ruinous snow. The illusion was broken, and now, all five of them stood amidst the rocky valley. And from above the cliff, basked in the light of morning sun, a giant white bird, clad in gold and jewels, gazed upon them with her four eyes.
Caladrius, the true goddess of plague and rejuvenation now loomed above the party. What was even more hilarious, though, was the party found themselves not really far from where their two raptors were waiting for them, they could even spot Kelly and Patty on the horizon.
“You performed marvelously in overcoming the Trial of Body, little ones…” The grandiose bird stated, as her eyes began glowing in gold.
“…now, it is time for the Trial of Heart!”
Alas, Ellen’s hysteria proved useless, as Freia hadn’t even a single extra second to aim, let alone properly chant a spell. Caladrius spread her grandeur wings, and everyone found themselves trapped in the dark.

He travelled through a pitch black, unending void. With no sound, nor light to orient himself around, the red-haired lad had to walk in a seemingly random direction. Not even the jade eye could pierce through this veil of emptiness, though.
“Girls? You there?” Despite his concern over his companions, Keyaruga sensed none of them. If Caladrius failed to separate them the first time, then now she definitely succeeded.
If your heart is weak, you can’t pass, such were the words of Mil, and, honestly, the oppressive solitude was unsettling all by itself. But then…
PADARA (faggot)!
TANOUTUR (murderer)!
Voices, dozens, hundreds, united in their refined hostility and contempt toward the Hero of Healing. Those he killed, those he trampled upon, those who he tortured to death. From raging bulls to soldiers the boy had to silence upon his escape, slavers and raiders, black dogs and Norn’s spearmen, thugs and robbers.
YOU’VE STOLEN MY FLARE!!!” Leonard, the despicable sadist covered in blood, roared, running with his sword, ready to cut down the one who murdered him. He… “A-A-A-A-A-A-AH!!! MY A-A-A-ARM!!!” …was disarmed instantly. The black blood of his tainted soul now painted Keyaruga’s saber, as he…
“Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-a!!!” …laughed like a mad man. Oh, the realization came to him. These were the ones whose lives he had taken with his own hand. The hero had to fall under the weight of his sins, supposedly. Did that stop him from beheading the one, who took his family? Oh no! No-o-o!
YOU CAN’T KILL ME NOW, YOU LITTLE SHIT!” Even when the thug in royal armor rose from a pool of his own blood, Keyaruga never stopped grinning. When the dead souls began charging at him, wave after wave, he rejoiced. These were the challengers, eager to avenge their deaths…
AHA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!” Keyaruga loudly chuckled. He chopped through Leonard’s head like a melon, grabbed the slaver, who sold him Setsuna, by his neck, crushed his balls with a knee, tossed his body into the crowd, slashed a soldier, kicked the fanatic, who oversaw the execution of his fellow villagers, crushed his nasty skull under his boot… “THANK YOU!!!” …grabbed his blade, dragged it, soaked it in his own blood, while the wailing mongrels stabbed and slashed him. It’s okay, when he swung, when the heroic blood fell upon them, they cried in pain, bursting like the enormous abscesses they were. “THANK YOU, MOMMY CALADRIUS, FOR THIS MAJESTIC PLAYGROUND!!!
The man yelled, chuckled, smiled… He ran across the dome of darkness, he lightened it with shining entrails; he burned his enemies with waves of fire, incinerated them with the lightning arcs. He killed, stomped, disgraced, disfigured, amputated, slammed, cut, broke bones, ripped hearts, took heads, and clubbed the poor bastards with their own severed limbs. They died, but rose again to take another chance at killing their tormentor, and everything started anew. This was the vicious circle of vengeance that the man enjoyed so very much and in it…
Was he right, though? Aside from various monsters, rushing into the carnival of gore, two people watched the lad’s brutality closely. Their eyes were full of despair… and disappointment.

While Keyaruga relished in his trial, Eve had to thread her path of emptiness with nothing and nobody to rely on. No enemies, no curses, no violence, no dark blood. Instead, she was met… by shadows.
Ni-ni-ni-ni-ni (no-no-no-no-no)!” She once again walked along the infinite road, but this time, no ally accompanied her, there was no friendship to call upon, no love to rely on. Only them – two columns of her brethren, bowing before their queen. Kneeling… to fade into her shining feathers. “Yoku shia horka in (don’t come into my wings)!” The verdant woman covered her teary eyes, waved off her subjects, she even tried shielding herself by pathetically embracing her wings. But there was no stopping it. Her friends, parents, guardians, servants, elders – dozens upon dozens of those, who chose her to be the vessel of their souls, were now stuck in this life.
Soon, all of the shadows went inside Eve’s feathers. None of them harbored any grudge against her, and even if they did, their spiritual form had no mouths to properly voice them.
But even so, Eve wasn’t allowed to get out of this hellish dome just yet.
Step. Step. Step.
A massive figure, slightly higher then two meters tall, emerged between the kneeling girl. A leonine figure carrying a long, bloodied stick, it was skinned, and his own pelt rested on his armored shoulders. He came to conquer. He…
Ushi, orna saikalla, setoan (you belong to me, woman)!” The demon, the bestial figure, humans tended to generalize ma-zok people to be, said, grabbing the Me-ua kahul by her chin with his clawed paw. “Yau ma, orn wor tanoute (how dare you murder me)?” The dead soul accused Eve, pushing her to the ephemeral ground.
“…” She was scared, Eve couldn’t even move a muscle, couldn’t speak, couldn’t breathe – the queen-to-be knew this man, she didn’t know, how, but she just knew! He was the one Keyaruga hinted at, when lamenting her lost family. He was…
“C… Cor… nar…” …the husband the ascended Me-ua had in the first world. Someone she saw as a soulmate, someone who blessed her with many victories and two beautiful children, someone… “Soguri (stand back)!” …the kokuyoku prodigy feared and hated, but had no will to oppose him back there. And now…
Orna kalla (you’re mine)!” The skinned lion spoke, pulling off his pants, revealing a disgustingly dismembered spiked penis. The black blood flowed out of it, as some intangible force cramped Eve’s mind with memories. They were her own, from another life, another timeline, but they were there, and they shackled her will. Even… Even if she wanted to fight back.
Keyaruga wouldn’t do that to her! Keyaruga wouldn’t rape her! Keyaruga wouldn’t berate her! Keyaruga wouldn’t belittle her! Keyaruga wouldn’t do that! Keyaruga!.. Keya… ru…
KEYARU!!! KEYA-A-A-A-RU-U!!! SAVE ME-E-E!!!” Eve screamed, fruitlessly trying to punch the undead monstrosity.
You can’t just kick a god to death, though.
Yes… Yes! But he wasn’t a god! He was!..
Marno (it’s useless). Oma pora kanbu (I’m gonna rape you).” The nightmare spoke, outright choking the girl. She had no strength to…
Why? There’s magic, there’s might, there’s so much… So much…
A call resounded inside Eve’s very being. An urge, a wish, an order. She had the power, a little army, which desired to be called upon.
N-no, I can’t!
She had to. The flow of time itself stopped, just to give the future queen this chance. Outside of it, nothing but doom and misery awaited her.
I… Don’t want…
No matter what she wanted, there were people who truly wished her good. People, who loved her for real… Her new family.
K… Keya… Keyaruga!
That’s right. A flux of power rose from within her, a load of motivation, a surge to overpower fear and regret. Time resumed its movement. And with it…
UO-O-O-O-O-O!!!” A shadowy figure flew across the black dome, leaving a giant hole inside the rapist’s chest. A savior came to Eve, and she looked familiar.
“M… MOM!!!” Eve, released from her fear, charged forward to hug her mother, but alas, Cornar came back from the dead, standing on his paws once more, he pushed the ghost woman away, and resumed his march toward the kokuyoku scion. But she wasn’t just a descendant of this tribe, Eve Reese was its righteous princess! The one and only queen! “How dare you do this to me?! How dare you claim me?!” As she spoke, more and more shadows emerged from within her wings to assault the perpetrator. It doesn’t matter if he remembered their erased future, doesn’t matter if he had a relationship with the ruler of the Confederation. Right now, he was just a threat, an enemy of the queen.
And what does the royal guard do to enemies of their monarch?
They kill them!
Is this… what it’s like to be you, Keyaruga?

WW: History of Suomus (Prologue)
So we're finally here, as I promised in the poll I made and the winner you all chose, here it is...the start of a new journey and a series of stories in the WW series...with the country of Suomus, home to some of our most beloved Witches in the franchise.I have to admit I was not expecting Suomus to win but I am excited to embark on this project as on my research I discovered a lot of fascinating aspects about Finnish's story that I am happy to implement in this alternate history known as Suomus, so don't expect it to always be subservient to Orussia and Baltland because......It is only when pushed to their limits when the Suomi show their true strength~
We will cover from its inception in the 10th century all the way to the year 1945 and their contribution to the Second Neuroi War, I'll release at least one of these weekly, there might be some weeks where I could publish two but I could not make a full promise on that, but at the very least you'll get one weekly.

It was during the second of her seven journeys that the famous Roman Witch Georgia of Lydda and the 36th Legion traveled to the north of Europa which they called “Skaniaujo” or modern day Scandinavia, she learned of the Germanic people’s origin story on how they arrived to the north and they met an enigmatic group of people native the land called “The Sami” who helped them adapt to the cold lands, the Germans were successful and quickly grew in numbers across the land.
Until a great disaster called “The Great Frost” covered the lands and forced the Germans to migrate south to warmer lands despite the Sami’s attempts to help them adapt to the cold, a sad saga in the chronicles of Germanic people…until Georgia discovered the dark truth behind this story once she and her legion helped stop the Great Frost from spreading across Europa in the year 304 A.C.
It was none other than the Sami who caused the Great Frost using ancient magic they learned from their Gods casting a spell to make the land colder through an artifact of their craft, their own Witches protested the idea but they were ignored and silenced, enraged and heartbroken the Witches of the Sami abandoned them, the spell however worked better than the Sami expected, the land became colder and the Germans left, but the land kept getting colder and the Sami realized their mistake too late to escape and so…they were consumed by the frost begging their Witches to come save them….but they never came and the Sami disappeared within the snow…
…Until the 36th Legion broke the spell and the lang began to heal, a process that would take 300 years to do so, and little by little humanity began inhabiting the north once again, primarily a group of Germans who settled back and became the ancestors of the Baltlanders, the Norse.
Now one might be wondering at this point…what happened to the Sami Witches? Where did they go? Why would it matter now that the Sami were gone?
As this story dances in the realm of both reality and myth it is hard to grasp what is real and what isn’t…one truth we can confirm however is that the Sami did not entirely disappear, it is theorized that a group marched out of Scandinavia to the east following in the steps of their Witches to find them, on the way they intermixed with other Finno-Uralic speaking people forming unions to fight off the Neuroi as best as they could and eventually settling in a piece of land in between Scandinavia and Orussia…this land was mostly composed of thick woodlands and swamps that began unfreezing as time progressed allowing this union of people to settle in the area, mostly in the coasts in small villages.
It was from these swamps in their native tongue where they would get their names…The Suomi, creating their own distinctive culture, language and stablishing trade with their neighbors like the Norse and the Western Romans around the seventh century.
Yet life wasn’t easy for them, the temperature of the land and the ferocious Neuroi made it very difficult to have a normal life, they were all helpless without Witches and the increased attempts from the Norse to settle in their lands, yet their ancient beliefs from the Sami still remained within them manifesting in a legend passed down through oral traditions.
When we endure the same coldness, our forefathers submitted them to… When we feel the same pain our forefathers inflicted them with… When we feel the same sadness our forefathers made them suffer… When we have done all that…they will forgive us and return.
Many believed in this legend but none wanted to follow in its guidance as they felt it was simply impossible…until the eight century where a group of five young men took it upon themselves to bear the coldness, the pain and the sadness…all to bring the Witches back to them.We don’t know who these men were, but they are referred to by nicknames associated with animals, there were The Fox, The Bear, The Salmon, The Ferret and the Owl…these group of men decided to travel north motivated by their devotion and resolution to save the Suomi.
They faced a lot of struggles on their path as expected and were very close to the claws of death at the hands of the Neuroi and the cold as they arrived to modern Lapland, and when the coldness froze their bones and their tears were solid crystals slashing their faces…a miracle happened.
They discovered a cave where they could seek refuge, realizing it was warm inside and radiating with an energy that cured their ills the deeper they went in…eventually discovering an amazing miracle inside trapped in an Ice Tomb melting away…A Witch.
She was described to be around 17 years old, dressed in traditional Sami clothes, with short blonde hair and the most radiant green eyes you could imagine, one gaze from her eyes could warm you in the coldest winters, her skin was as pale as the snow…and once the tomb melted she came back to life and was received by the five men.
The records says her name was “Aigin” and she had nothing but love and kindness for the struggling five men, expressing to them how happy she was to see them and how eager she was to help and love them, they accepted her love and embrace, it was a warm and lovely reconnection between two related people through time, in which the five of them ended up laying with the Witch several times for three days out of pure joy until they were nursed back to health by her…even if it was just one of them…their Witches were back and they couldn’t be happier.
By the time they returned to their village to deliver the good news, it became apparent that Aigin was pregnant from the five young men and eventually she gave birth to five beautiful daughters who all became Witches like their Mother bearing familiars akin to their Father’s nicknames: Ailia from Fox, Elkku from Ferret, Hansiina from Bear, Lempsa from Owl and Nyyti from Salmon, according to the legend all Suomus Witches today descend from these five Witches in some capacity.
Aigin and her daughters took it upon themselves to protect and unite the various Suomi tribes into one confederation, slaying the Neuroi and establishing deals with the Norse for a peaceful coexistence now being able to talk through their Witches, although fights occurred and they had to lead the Suomi to beat them in battle more than once, teaching the Suomi to use their land, their coldness to their advantage.
Become One with the Snow she would tell them, she drilled this into the Suomi and her daughters thought her life…dedicated to turn the Suomi into what the Sami couldn’t be…strong united people who relied not on their Gods, but on themselves to thrive and survive and of course once she came back and thanks to her daughters, Witches began appearing among the Suomi.
To this day Aigin is highly venerated in Suomus and a shrine in Helsinki over her grave is visited daily by its people, the day she came back (Which is ironically, the same day they got their independence from Orussia) in December 6 is a national day of celebration and every Suomi Witch invokes her name when going into combat or whenever they need a boost in their confidence and strength; Aigin died in the 9th century leaving the Suomi in a great state, ready for a world that was ready to descend upon them being caught between two nascent powers in Europa, the successors of Rome and the deadly Neuroi in the northern lands.
While we cannot be certain a Sami Witch was frozen in ice for hundreds of years until she was discovered by 5 dying young men, it is confirmed Aigin existed and had 5 children, and these alongside the other Witches they gave birth to carried on her legacy as the Suomi confederation entered into the 10th century ready to begin their story, Europa would learn that only when you push a Suomi to their limits and make them feel the pain, the coldness and the sadness…is when their true potential emerges and make them fight for their happiness and more importantly…their freedom.

To be continued....

2023.05.25 23:41 dblack246 [Spoilers] [Published] Sword Strokes, Cyvasse, and the Self-Aware Author. Part one: Ruse Bolton and Storm Born

After some 15 or so times through (thank you Audible) the core 5 books in the series, I am really starting to notice habits in George's writing style. Interestingly enough, one habit of his is to write about habits. Whether it is Arya biting her lip, Jon flexing his burned fingers, Jaime's phantom fingers, or Sandor's mouth twitching George has invested considerable text to the concepts of repetition and pattern spotting.
He shows us the perils of repetition in sword fighting:
Bronn pushed a fall of hair from his eyes. "He's the best of them. But watch him, he falls into a rhythm, delivering the same strokes in the same order each time he attacks." He grinned. "That will be the death of him, the day he faces me." Tyrion IV, ACOK.
He shows us this in Cyvasse:
"I understand you've fought some mighty battles too, Your Grace," said Drey in his most cheerful voice. "It is said you show our brave Prince Trystane no mercy at the cyvasse table.""He always sets his squares up the same way, with all the mountains in the front and his elephants in the passes," said Myrcella. "So I send my dragon through to eat his elephants." The Queenmaker, AFFC.
And again here:
The sellsword was nearly as bad a player as the Yunkish lord had been, but his play was stolid and tenacious rather than bold. His opening arrays were different every time, yet all the same—conservative, defensive, passive. He does not play to win, Tyrion realized. He plays so as not to lose. It worked in their second game, when the little man overreached himself with an unsound assault. It did not work in the third game, nor the fourth, nor the fifth, which proved to be their last. Tyrion X, ADWD.
Arya is able to kill her target by noting his patterns.
Yet they brought him money: leather purses plump with gold and silver and the square iron coins of Braavos. The old man would count it out carefully, sorting the coins and stacking them up neatly, like with like. He never looked at the coins. Instead he bit them, always on the left side of his mouth, where he still had all his teeth. From time to time he'd spin one on the table and listen to the sound it made when it came clattering to a stop. The Ugly Little Girl, ADWD.
George even touches upon this in performance arts.
Penny did not return the smile. "By myself, all I can do is ride around in circles. And even if the queen should laugh, where will I go afterward? We never stay in one place long. The first time they see us they laugh and laugh, but by the fourth or fifth time, they know what we're going to do before we do it. Then they stop laughing, so we have to go somewhere new. Tyrion VIII ADWD.
I don't think it is a coincidence this passage is included in the fifth performance of the series. GRRM is aware he needs to shake things up because if you don't change, people get bored or they spot your patterns and know what you are going to do before you are ready to reveal.
George writes how the nature of humanity in unchanging.
"You may read it here. It is old and fragile." He studied her, frowning. "Archmaester Rigney once wrote that history is a wheel, for the nature of man is fundamentally unchanging. What has happened before will perforce happen again, he said. I think of that whenever I contemplate the Crow's Eye. Euron Greyjoy sounds queerly like Urron Greyiron to these old ears. I shall not go to Old Wyk. Nor should you."
George seems to think humanity is moving in a circle.
She took Ser Arys by the hand, and wove her fingers through his own. "Have you ever seen the arms of House Toland of Ghost Hill?"He had to think a moment. "A dragon eating its own tail?""The dragon is time. It has no beginning and no ending, so all things come round again. The Soiled Knight, AFFC.
And traveling in a circle is one way I can make some sense of...
"To go north, you must journey south. To reach the west, you must go east. To go forward you must go back, and to touch the light you must pass beneath the shadow."
I think George writes so often about patterns and habits because he is also a creature of habit. I could be wrong about this, but I think George writes the same way Ser Tallad fights. He falls into a pattern of strokes in a particular order. At times, he writes like Brown Ben Plumm plays Cyvasse. He may move some pieces around but the basics are still there once you know what to look for. A while back, I noticed how Jon meeting Ygritte shared some story beats with Brienne meeting Jaime. Readers much more talented than I such as u/hypocrite_deer and many others have made astute observations about George writing in parallel.
I theorize George is writing from a template. The same way Ser Tallad delivers the same strokes in the same order, George may be doing the same with several of his plot points. I believe if (if!) we identify the proper parallel stories and or characters, we can predict where one unresolved story is going by looking to how the resolved story ended. Applying this way of interpretation to the text, I have some ideas about where a few things may be going in TWOW. I wanted to explore a few of those here. I am no expert and I make no claims to have correctly applied every detail, but I think I see some patterns.
As always, I am not trying to debunk or be contrarian to any popular theories. About 28% of the story is yet unreleased so we are all making guesses here in ways that make sense to us. Let's just all try to enjoy the exchange of perspectives.
The Prologue of ADWD may tell us Roose Bolton's fate
The ADWD prologue is the POV of Varamyr Sixskins who I believe is a parallel character to Ramsay Snow. They have a lot of the same character traits and story beats. I think we can take all we know about Varamyr to predict where the Ramsay story is going. But first, let's discuss the parallels.
Varamyr and Ramsay are each associated with the murder of a sibling (or assumed sibling).
Lump had been born a month before his proper time, and he was sick so often that no one expected him to live. His mother waited until he was almost four to give him a proper name, and by then it was too late. The whole village had taken to calling him Lump, the name his sister Meha had given him when he was still in their mother's belly. Meha had given Bump his name as well, but Lump's little brother had been born in his proper time, big and red and robust, sucking greedily at Mother's teats. She was going to name him after Father. Bump died, though. He died when he was two and I was six, three days before his nameday. Prologue, ADWD.
"Ramsay killed him. A sickness of the bowels, Maester Uthor says, but I say poison. In the Vale, Domeric had enjoyed the company of Redfort's sons. He wanted a brother by his side, so he rode up the Weeping Water to seek my bastard out. I forbade it, but Domeric was a man grown and thought that he knew better than his father. Now his bones lie beneath the Dreadfort with the bones of his brothers, who died still in the cradle, and I am left with Ramsay. Tell me, my lord … if the kinslayer is accursed, what is a father to do when one son slays another?" Reek III, ADWD.
There is also a shared motivation for the murders which appears to be jealousy. Varamyr killed his brother just a few days before his brother was to get his father's name.
Meha had given Bump his name as well, but Lump's little brother had been born in his proper time, big and red and robust, sucking greedily at Mother's teats. She was going to name him after Father. Bump died, though. He died when he was two and I was six, three days before his nameday. Prologue, ADWD.
Ramsay who is a Snow, may have killed Domeric because Domeric has the Bolton name of their father, which is what Ramsay clearly wants for himself. He tells us this value almost immediately after discarding the Reek disguise.
"Ramsay." There was a smile on his plump lips, but none in those pale pale eyes. "Snow, my wife called me before she ate her fingers, but I say Bolton." Theon VI, ACOK.
They are each rejected early in life.
His own mother had abandoned him as well. She cried for Bump, but she never cried for me. The morning his father pulled him out of bed to deliver him to Haggon, she would not even look at him. He had shrieked and kicked as he was dragged into the woods, until his father slapped him and told him to be quiet. "You belong with your own kind," was all he said when he flung him down at Haggon's feet. Prologue, ADWD.
"A year later this same wench had the impudence to turn up at the Dreadfort with a squalling, red-faced monster that she claimed was my own get. I should've had the mother whipped and thrown her child down a well … but the babe did have my eyes. She told me that when her dead husband's brother saw those eyes, he beat her bloody and drove her from the mill. That annoyed me, so I gave her the mill and had the brother's tongue cut out, to make certain he did not go running to Winterfell with tales that might disturb Lord Rickard. Each year I sent the woman some piglets and chickens and a bag of stars, on the understanding that she was never to tell the boy who had fathered him. A peaceful land, a quiet people, that has always been my rule." Reek III, ADWD.
Varamyr uses animals to facilitate his rape of women.
Whenever he desired a woman he sent his shadowcat to stalk her, and whatever girl he'd cast his eye upon would follow meekly to his bed. Some came weeping, aye, but still they came. Varamyr gave them his seed, took a hank of their hair to remember them by, and sent them back. Prologue, ADWD.
Ramsay does the same with his hounds.
Ben Bones, who liked the dogs better than their master, had told Reek they were all named after peasant girls Ramsay had hunted, raped, and killed back when he'd still been a bastard, running with the first Reek. "The ones who give him good sport, anywise. The ones who weep and beg and won't run don't get to come back as bitches." The next litter to come out of the Dreadfort's kennels would include a Kyra, Reek did not doubt. Reek III, ADWD.
They each take something from the women they rape. Varamyr a lock of hair, Ramsay takes a name. Each displays greater attachment to animals than they do people which may indicate an inability to connect with humans and a preference for control in relationships.
Both characters are associated with the skins of others with Varamyr being a skinchanger, and Ramsay flaying those who displease him. Ramsay even switches skins with Reek in a manner of speaking.
The man laughed. "The wretch is dead." He stepped closer. "The girl's fault. If she had not run so far, his horse would not have lamed, and we might have been able to flee. I gave him mine when I saw the riders from the ridge. I was done with her by then, and he liked to take his turn while they were still warm. I had to pull him off her and shove my clothes into his hands—calfskin boots and velvet doublet, silver-chased swordbelt, even my sable cloak. Ride for the Dreadfort, I told him, bring all the help you can. Take my horse, he's swifter, and here, wear the ring my father gave me, so they'll know you came from me. He'd learned better than to question me. By the time they put that arrow through his back, I'd smeared myself with the girl's filth and dressed in his rags. They might have hanged me anyway, but it was the only chance I saw." Theon VI, ACOK.
Ramsay makes several references to wearing human skin with his threat to make boots of Lady Dustin's skin, and later promising (or threatening) Big Walder with a cloak of skin. One could argue Varamyr is a man wearing the skins of animals while Ramsay is a beast wearing the skin of men.
Both characters receive teaching from a father figure which each character rejects as weakness.
He could almost hear Haggon growling at him. "Men may eat the flesh of beasts and beasts the flesh of men, but the man who eats the flesh of man is an abomination."Abomination. That had always been Haggon's favorite word. Abomination, abomination, abomination. To eat of human meat was abomination, to mate as wolf with wolf was abomination, and to seize the body of another man was the worst abomination of all. Haggon was weak, afraid of his own power. He died weeping and alone when I ripped his second life from him. Varamyr had devoured his heart himself. He taught me much and more, and the last thing I learned from him was the taste of human flesh. Prologue, ADWD.
Roose tries to impart his values upon Ramsay and Ramsay rejects this.
By the king's decree you are now a Bolton. Try and act like one. Tales are told of you, Ramsay. I hear them everywhere. People fear you.""Good.""You are mistaken. It is not good. No tales were ever told of me. Do you think I would be sitting here if it were otherwise? Your amusements are your own, I will not chide you on that count, but you must be more discreet. A peaceful land, a quiet people. That has always been my rule. Make it yours." Reek III, ADWD.
"You are the Warden of the North. Command them.""An invitation will accomplish the same thing. Power tastes best when sweetened by courtesy. You had best learn that if you ever hope to rule." The Lord of the Dreadfort glanced at Reek. "Oh, and unchain your pet. I am taking him." Id.
I think there are strong parallels between the characters. If you've spotted some I've missed, please share them in the comments. It is always fun to see how others view the material.
So if Ramsay and Varamyr are indeed parallel characters who are following substantially similar story beats, then we should ask whether there are elements of the Varamyr POV we can use to predict where Ramsay's story is going. I think there are two important factors learned from the ADWD prologue which provide clues to Ramsay's Winds story line. The first is Ramsay will kill Roose.
Ramsay killing Roose is really not much of reach I think. There is a clear tension between the two and no fondness between them. Now that Ramsay is decreed legitimate, he is the oldest Bolton heir. The surest way to ensure he gets the Dreadfort is to take it before he is disinherited in favor of another true born child. Ramsay ensures this by killing Roose. And given George writes about patricide elsewhere. (See Lannister, Tyrion in ASOS and Hunter, Harlan in AFFC). The same could happen here.
Ramsay has a history of feeding his girls human meat. So Ramsay killing Roose and feeding him to dog (who are essentially domesticated wolves) as Varamyr killed Haggon shouldn't be all that controversial. However, there is another plot point in Varamyr's POV that if followed will invite some push back. Varamyr killed his foster father rather than his biological father. If the pattern follows, then this is another clue Ramsay is not Roose's child.
Roose--and many readers--believes Ramsay is his child based on three factors shared with us in Reek III, ADWD.
  1. He raped Ramsay's mother in observance of the Lord's right to the first night.
  2. The woman shows up with a child about a year later.
  3. Roose and others believe Ramsay has Roose's eyes.
The first two factors are not great indicator's of paternity. Having sex with a woman who is later pregnant does not prove paternity (R.I.P. Jerry Springer). The child could be fathered by anyone else. So points 1 and 2 are not very strong. This leaves us with the eyes. Genetic traits passed down are better indicators genetic relationship but is a far from certain means of determining parentage. For many readers, the eyes are enough. I tend to be more skeptical than most, so I looked closely at the eyes and other factors. Eye color is the only thing about Ramsay that is similar to Roose. Theon describes Ramsay as follows:
Ramsay was clad in black and pink—black boots, black belt and scabbard, black leather jerkin over a pink velvet doublet slashed with dark red satin. In his right ear gleamed a garnet cut in the shape of a drop of blood. Yet for all the splendor of his garb, he remained an ugly man, big-boned and slope-shouldered, with a fleshiness to him that suggested that in later life he would run to fat. His skin was pink and blotchy, his nose broad, his mouth small, his hair long and dark and dry. His lips were wide and meaty, but the thing men noticed first about him were his eyes. Reek I, ADWD.
Compare this to Roose
It was almost evenfall when the new master of Harrenhal arrived. He had a plain face, beardless and ordinary, notable only for his queer pale eyes. Neither plump, thin, nor muscular, he wore black ringmail and a spotted pink cloak. Arya IX, ACOK.
Roose Bolton lay abed, naked. Leeches clung to the inside of his arms and legs and dotted his pallid chest, Arya X, ACOK.
The Lord of the Dreadfort paid the chatter no mind, Catelyn saw. Sometimes he tasted a bite of this, a spoon of that, tearing bread from the loaf with short strong fingers, but the meal could not distract him. Catelyn VII, ASOS.
Ramsay did not get any of Roose's body features, mannerisms or behaviors. Wheras Domeric is described as quiet, learned, played the harp (strong fingers) and seems to have a healthy relationship with people and animals. Oddly, I could find no mention of Domeric's eye color.
Maybe you are thinking Ramsay looks that way from his mother? Well maybe but it does not seem likely. She is not fat, unhealthy or ugly either.
She was a tall, willowy creature, very healthy-looking. Long legs and small firm breasts, like two ripe plums. Pretty, in a common sort of way. Reek III, ADWD.
Ramsay is not healthy looking, nor thin. He's ugly where his mother was "pretty" and his father "plain". With the lack of shared features, we should question paternity.
Someone is likely ready to type "But Ramsay and Roose still have the same eyes. George gave them the same eyes to confirm a parentage"
But do they have the same eyes? While they are each pale, they are not the same kind of pale. Roose's eyes are:
Roose Bolton's eyes were paler than stone, darker than milk, and his voice was spider soft. Jaime V, ASOS.
His lordship glanced at the new Reek with eyes as pale and strange as two white moons. Reek III, ADWD.
George describes Roose's eyes using moon and milk. There is a suggestion of clean and natural with Roose's eyes. This is not the case with Ramsay.
Theon originally attributes Ramsay's eyes with Roose.
He had his lord father's eyes—small, close-set, queerly pale. Ghost grey, some men called the shade, but in truth his eyes were all but colorless, like two chips of dirty ice. Reek I, ADWD.
Later, when he can look at them side-by-side, Theon notes a difference in their eyes.
Reek saw the way Ramsay's mouth twisted, the spittle glistening between his lips. He feared he might leap the table with his dagger in his hand. Instead he flushed red, turned his pale eyes from his father's paler ones, and went to find the keys. Reek III, ADWD.
Theon tells us Ramsay's eyes are near colorless, yet not as pale as Roose's Hence Roose's eyes are colorless. This is confirmed by Catelyn.
Duskendale was done and cold; it was the battles still to come that worried Catelyn. "How many men have you brought my son?" she asked Roose Bolton pointedly.His queer colorless eyes studied her face a moment before he answered. Catelyn VI, ASOS.
George tells us the eyes are similar rather than the same. Hence, Ramsay may not have Roose's eyes. He might just have pale eyes like several other characters who also probably aren't Roose's kid:
So there are lot's of characters with pale eyes, but nobody I have found is described to have eyes as pale as Roose. Roose might have albinism (another repeat theme of George's) of the eyes. This is a genetic condition which is only passed from mother to child. This means if Ramsay has pale eyes, it did not come from Roose because men can't pass that.
The woman Roose raped may have simply deceived Roose and with good reason. Thanks to Roose, she suffered a rape and lost a husband. Later she is allegedly put out by the brother-in-law. This woman needs resources and the eye color of this child helped her get that. Bolton fell for the deception and George left us a hint to this right in the names of the character. Roose is a homophone of ruse, which means a deception or trick. Roose fell for the ruse.
Speaking of names, Ramsay is a name of English origin meaning "garlic island". Garlic is an anathema to vampires, which will be interesting if Bolt-on proves true. Even the Bolt-on theory provides a parallel to Varamyr because Bolt-on is a theory about the mind of one person trying to take the body of another. This body stealing is a key factor in the Varamyr POV.
Thistle had returned to him. She had him by the shoulders and was shaking him, shouting in his face. Varamyr could smell her breath and feel the warmth of it upon cheeks gone numb with cold. Now, he thought, do it now, or die.He summoned all the strength still in him, leapt out of his own skin, and forced himself inside her. Prologue, ADWD.
Varamyr failed in his attempt to take another body and I think this same story beat will manifest with Roose and Ramsay. The failure is even someone hinted at during this discussion between Roose and Reek.
"I know." Lord Bolton sighed. "His blood is bad. He needs to be leeched. The leeches suck away the bad blood, all the rage and pain. No man can think so full of anger. Ramsay, though … his tainted blood would poison even leeches, I fear." Reek III, ADWD.
At some point in Winds, Ramsay will kill Roose and Roose will attempt to jump into Ramsay. Roose will fail realizing Ramsay is not a genetic match because Ramsay isn't his son. Ramsay's "bad blood" (or garlic nature) will poison the Lord of Leeches leaving a whisper of him within Ramsay just as Haggo still haunts Varamyr.
"he told the spearwife that his name was Haggon. Afterward he wondered why that name had come to his lips, of all those he might have chosen. I ate his heart and drank his blood, and still he haunts me." Prologue ADWD.
A small bit of Roose will live within Ramsay tormenting him in a similar fashion as Haggon with Varamyr.
The unknowns of the Tower of Joy may be revealed by the birth of Mance's son
I see a number of parallels between The Tower of Joy the events of the Wildling Prince.

Wildling Prince Tower of Joy
A woman gives birth Unknown but theorized
A "Lord" from Winterfell is present A Lord from Winterfell is present
The man is recently wed to a redhead The man is recently wed to a redhead
The father of the child is royalty (Mance) The father of the child is royalty (Rhaegar)
The mother was stolen The mother was stolen
The mother died afteduring childbirth The mother died after or during childbirth
A midwife is present Unknown
A battle rages outside the birthing area A battle rages outside the birthing area
There is a promise made There is a promise made
There is a threat made by the "Lord" Unknown
The child's blood puts them in danger Unknown for sure but theorized
The baby is sent across the narrow sea with another mother who nurses him Unknown
The baby is offered a Targaryen name and a nickname related to the condition of birth "Aemon Battleborn" "Aemon Steelsong" Unknown
A baby swap takes place and the swapped child stays with the man from Winterfell Unknown

The major plot points of the Wildling Prince line up with the known events of the TOJ. If each event is following the same template, then we might be able to fill in some of the unknowns at the TOJ with the confirmed elements of the Wildling Prince. So addressing each in order of unknown.
A birth.
Lyanna's "bed of blood" was in fact a birthing bed. Not really controversial but was mildly ambiguous.
A midwife.
Jon confirms a midwife was present for the Wildling Prince. See Jon X, ASOS. If the beats are the same, we can conclude a midwife was present at the TOJ. Eddard recalls "They had found him still holding her body, silent with grief. The little crannogman, Howland Reed, had taken her hand from his. Ned could recall none of it." Eddard I. A midwife solves the mystery of "they" because everyone else is supposed to be dead.
A threat.
There was a threat made by Jon to force Gilly to take the Wildling Prince. If the beats are the same, Eddard made threats. What they might have been, why he made them, and against whom isn't yet revealed, but as Maester Aemon said "What threats the Lord Commander made, what promises, I can only guess . . . but threats and promises there surely were." Samwell II, AFFC. As more info is provided about the TOJ and the events following it, I theorize we learn Eddard made threats and why.
The child's blood puts them in danger.
Jon states his belief that Melisandre will burn the Wildling Prince if she needs king's blood. Most people theorize the child born at the TOJ will be in danger from Robert. Honestly, Tywin seems the real threat here given he actually ordered the death of two Targaryen children and Eddard saw the proof of that. Either way, the parallel holds.
The baby is sent across the narrow sea.
Here is where things get spicy particularly for those who pray to the night fire of R+L=J which I will state is a very sound theory and may ultimately prove to be true. However, under the template theory, the royal child is sent across the narrow sea by ship as part of the effort to keep the child safe. Jon was never sent across the sea that I could find. So I am open to the idea the child born at the TOJ was sent away by sea. Daenerys was sent from Westeros by ship to the free cities. Just saying.
The baby is given a Targaryen name and a moniker related to the condition of birth.
Gilly suggests naming the Wildling Prince Aemon Steelsong or Aemon Battleborn. The possible matching beat here is Daenerys Stormborn. If Daenerys was the child born at TOJ, storm is very much part of her birth. Eddard and his companions sought to storm the Tower of Joy to rescue Lyanna. Eddard even associates the Tower of Joy with a "storm" of sorts.
"No," Ned said with sadness in his voice. "Now it ends." As they came together in a rush of steel and shadow, he could hear Lyanna screaming. "Eddard!" she called. A storm of rose petals blew across a blood-streaked sky, as blue as the eyes of death. Eddard X.
Be it the storming of the tower or the storm of roses, George associated TOJ with storm and Daenerys with storm in a way I haven't found with Jon.
If George is writing the TOJ the way Ser Tallad fights or the way Ben Plumm plays Cyvasse, we can guess the baby born at the TOJ was swapped with another, sent across the narrow sea with the mother of another child, and given a Targayen first name with a nickname related to the condition of birth. To my reading, this fits Daenerys Stormborn who was sent across the narrow sea to keep her safe. Who Eddard was still trying to keep safe ("Promise me Ned"). I think Eddard sent her with Ashara who nursed the child as her own. George even offers a hint to a mother child connection between the two.
Even after all these years, Ser Barristan could still recall Ashara's smile, the sound of her laughter. He had only to close his eyes to see her, with her long dark hair tumbling about her shoulders and those haunting purple eyes. Daenerys has the same eyes. Sometimes when the queen looked at him, he felt as if he were looking at Ashara's daughter … The Kingbreaker, ADWD.
Template theory suggests to me Dany was the child born at the TOJ more than Jon. Rhaegar did think his child would fulfill prophecy and Dany has done more with red stars and stone dragons than Jon thusfar. Rheagar was expecting a repeat of Aegon and his sisters. Rheagar was just one daughter away from the past repeating itself. So this is why I am open to Dany being born at the TOJ, but I do not dismiss or discount the R+L=J theory. It is a sound theory based in relevant text.
But what say ye, fine redditors? Does George stroke his pen the same as Ser Tallad does with his swords strokes? Can we readers reliably use completed similar story lines to predict where currently incomplete stories are going? As always, polite disagreement and constructive feedback are always welcome. In part 2 of this series, we will look at Quentyn, his purpose in Winds, and how George did something like this twice before.
TL;DR: George--perhaps without realizing it--is writing several story lines in parallel. By spotting the pattern, we can use finished plots to identify where unresolved plots are going. I applied this theory to story lines involving Ramsay and the TOJ.
Edited for typo and formatting issue.

2023.05.25 20:19 AnimancyPress [Animancy Press] - New Release: College of Adventure Coaching for the Bard

[Animancy Press] - New Release: College of Adventure Coaching for the Bard

Adventure Coaching, a Bard College

The all new College of Adventure brings the Bard into a new light enhancing their capacities as a support character with the encouraging words class feature which allows your bard to spend their reaction to make an insight check against the AC or DC that their ally is attempting to meet and grant them a bonus to their attack roll, saving throw, or ability check. Additionally, they gain the ability to spend their reaction enhancing the damage or healing of another and gain an additional cantrip from any class’s spell list through a series feature known as Cross Training. Next the College of Adventure Bard gets to reactively cast vicious mockery when certain conditions are met, gains an additional spell from any class’s spell list as their cross training pays off, and has the option of spending their short rest granting a limited form of inspiration to others. Then we finish off with a capstone that allows the College of Adventure Bard to double the number of attacks that the target of their reactive discouragement has to make at disadvantage.

Also included is a new Bard Initiate feat, and 6 magic items from Animancy Press to bring your College of Adventure Bard into the fray with something new and exciting options!

2023.05.25 05:18 Icy-Appointment1673 Kristopher Maddigan's Linear Notes Translated Part 2

The Delicious Last Course
The main soundtrack of Cuphead was centered on the big band style, but I wanted to add more different sounds and genres to the DLC's BGM to make it richer in variety. In particular, I wanted a sound reminiscent of early Disney and Hollywood films, by composers such as Max Stiener and Erich Korngold, who were active in Hollywood at the time, and Disney's Leigh Harline and Frank Churchill. It's a style that has become widely known (esspesially the classic score of Snow White by Frank Churchill). Many movies from that era used brilliant tones with strings, harps, and often a celeste at the beginning, and even now, when you hear it, you instantly feel the "golden age" of Hollywood. This song, and a few that follow, contain all the main themes heard in this DLC. Chalice's theme triplet arpeggio, appears in "Baking the Wondertart", "Triumphant Trio", and "Delicious Last Course". In the first few seconds, the Chef Saltbaker theme also makes an appearance. I wanted to include the Boswell Sisters-style female chorus trio used in the announcement trailer for Cuphead on the Switch back in 2019, so Heather Bambrick, Shannon Butcher, and Rique Franks all returned for the DLC's soundtrack. There is also a behind the scenes video on Studio MDHR's YouTube channel, so be sure to check that out.

A Far Off Isle
Most of the backround music for this DLC was produced in a "reverse engineering" manner. When it came to writing A Far Off Isle, I pulled out various themes used in Baking the Wondertart. From there, I changed the time signature and arranged the dark and scary melody of the original song into a bright and joyful one. The violin and organ make an appearance, two very important instruments in the DLC soundtrack. Like the trilogy of songs that play in Saltbaker's final scenes, the main theme of this song is also a variation of the Inkwell Theme, a common four note leitmotif I used a lot in the main game.
Chef Saltbaker
A song inspired by the wonderful recordings left by guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli. String jazz like the Hot Club of France wasn't covered in Cuphead's original soundtrack, so it was a genre I really wanted to include this time. This is also a song that was created in the manner of reverse engineering. The descending minor scale section from Baking the Wondertart is also used here.
Recipe for Ms. Chalice
Instruments played with mallets, such as the xylophone and marimba, were very popular in the 1920's and 30's. Thanks to the great performances of the famous musicians such as George Hamilton Green/The Joe Green Brothers, Clair Omar Musser, and Teddy Brown, this song was able to take shape. The rising arpeggios phrase at the beginning of this song was conscious of the song "Great Fairy's Fountain" from The Legend of Zelda series, and was also included in "Legendary Ghost from the first Cuphead soundtrack. The female chorus trio from the DLC opening song also appear here. A fun behind the scenes video for this song is also available online, showing Micheal Murphy playing the xylophone brilliantly. Please take a look.
Oh Chalice Oh Chalice It's time to go adventuring Chalice Oh Chalice Always use the Reci- Always use the Reci- Always use the Recipe Yeah!
Inkwell Isle Four
This is a song strongly influenced by the Hot Club of France. Each solo part features Vern Dorge on clarinet, Chris Bezant on guitar, and Drew Jurecka on violin. All the band members who are good at playing in this style have done a great job. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you.
Gnome Way Out
I wanted to include at least one 2-feel jug band style song in this soundtrack, and Glumstone the Giant's stage was just perfect. Ted Warren, who played the drums on this song, is not only capable of playing with a standard drum set, but also a technique called "double drumming." Playing the bass drum with the right hand and the snare drum with the opposite hand. (The pedal was later invented for the bass drum, pre-dating today's common drum sets) I also added a washboard sound for a more vintage finish. Jeff McLeod on piano, peter Hysen on tuba, Jason Logue and Kevin Turcotte on trumpet, Al Kay on trombone, and Vern Dorge on clarinet. At the request of Chad from Studio MDHR, I also included a tribute to Golden Axe.
Porkrind's Provisions
The DLC uses a lot of violins and guitars throughout the story, so I wanted to update Porkrind's theme to include those instruments. By the way, if you play both versions at the same time, the two songs overlap beautifully. The accordion was masterfully played by Jeff McLeod.
Prelude and Proclamation/King of Games' Castle
I wanted the King of Games' castle to feel particularly unique and special in the world of Cuphead. These two songs are inspired by Disney's animated short film series "Silly Symphony." (Such as 1933's Fairytale Kingdom) Most cartoons at the time had a separate main theme and an overture which played loudly at the title card. Following that style, we gave our own take on that formula. The music of Don't Deal with the Devil was created with the intention of paying tribute to the big bands that were active in the past, but in this DLC, I wanted to show respect for the soundtracks of past classic games. For example, these two songs use the "flat six, flat seven, one" chord progression, which is famous for being used in the BGM for "Super Mario Bros." and the "Final Fantasy" series. I use it for all the King of Games songs to keep it cohesive.
Thee King of Games greets you with pomp and much ado 'To thine's own game play true or thus thou fate shall rue'
Bouree on the Board
I fused the sound baroque music with jazzy improvisation, and it turned out like this. Various versions are played depending on which boss you fight in the game, but this album contains the original soundtrack version. Sharron Lee on violin, Rob Piltch on lute, Kevin Turcotte on trumpet, and Micheal Murphy on xylophone.
Bootlegger Boogie
The main riff of this song was one of many scrapped ideas written for the main game. It was a good call on my part to keep the melody in my back pocket for the DLC because it fits the Moonshine Mob like a glove. The Gertrude Baby Cox-esque scatting is performed by Alana Bridgewater, who is known for the voice of King Dice. The saxophone heard in the beginning is also a C melody saxophone, a very unique and rare instrument that hasn't been used much since the 1930's. It can be said that this song is like a distant relative of "Shootin' n' Lootin'" from the main story, since both have the same progression and overall structure. Vern Dorge on C melody saxophone, Al Kay on trombone, and Mike Murley on the tenor saxophone.
King of Games' Castle (Rococo)
I thought I should prepare at least one different arrangement for King of Games' Castle, so I changed it into a relaxed version using the styles of baroque and rococo music that played once you beat all of the mini-bosses. Allison Melville on recorder, Laura Chambers on alto Flute, and Melissa Scott on oboe.
The Queen's Riguadon
Instead of using Bouree on the Board, I decided to write a new song for the queen since she is the final boss of that area. It follows the rhythm of a riguadon, (a baroque sub-genre) and uses the "flat six, flat seven, one" chord progression abundantly. Allison Melville on recorder, Rob Weymouth on trumpet, Stephen Boda on harpsichord, and Andrew Rasmus on timpani.
High-Noon Hoopla
This is the result of combining traditional big band with "western swing," popularized by artists such as Gene Autry, Merl Lindsay, and Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. The violin, electric guitar, lap steel, and blue yodel really do give this track an authentic feel. Blue yodeling is a singing technique that was popularized by country singer Jimmie Rodgers, and Russel De Carle provides a beautiful singing voice on this song. Drew Jurecka on violin, Burke Carol on lap steel, Jason Louge on trumpet, and Jen Stephen on tuba. Of all the boss songs in Cuphead, this is the only one that is mostly in the major key.
Chef Saltbaker (Piano)
I don't have much to say about this song. John Herberman did a wonderful and mischievous piano arrangement.
Doggone Dogfight
Like Bootlegger Boogie, this was another scrapped idea for the main story. This song, as well as "Murine Corps" from the base game, were inspired by the music from the famous "Lindy Hop" dance scene in the movie "Hellzapoppin'." (Which also features jazz musician Slim Gallard!) The guitar in this song is heavily inspired by the works of Charlie Christian. This song is based on several riffs, and had a slightly different approach than the usual composition process. Ben Bishop on guitar, Jeff McLeod on piano, Mark Duggan on vibraphone, Kevin Turcotte on trumpet, and Mike Murley on tenor sax.
Inkwell Isle Four (Piano)
Performed by the great Canadian pianist Jeff McLeod, this version departs from the "Hot Club of France" approach, and instead goes for a finish reminiscent of great stride piano players like James P. Johnson and Art Tatum.
One Hell of a Dream
This is one of my favorite songs in this album. The main riff came to me first, and I developed it from there. I was heavily inspired by the beautiful score of Joby Talbot's ballet "The Winter's Tale." The harp section was decided by Sanya Eng. Phrases with a lot of semitone shifts would be difficult to pull off in one shot. I thought it would be impossible, but Sanya really surprised me when she pulled it off in less than a few tries. In this song, I was able to incorporate various ideas into the arrangement. For example, one day I happened to be at Canterbury Studios in Toronto, and on the same day Colin Maier was recording a musical saw for another project, and I was like, 'Oh, by all means, I need you to play on this song.' He gladly obliged. Christina Faye on piano and celeste, with Colleen Cook on clarinet. Special thanks to Peter Smith for arranging it to loop seamlessly in-game.
An Ominous Stroll
This piece is the result of an attempt to compose a song (almost) strictly using the twelve-tone technique, invented by Arnold Schoenberg. Using this technique while writing this song was a fun exercise to express myself freely, while still having constraints. The first sequence of notes that show up in this song appear briefly in "One Hell of a Dream," but I originally wasn't going to add that here as the intro, as it seemed arbitrary to me in hindsight, but I ended up doing it anyway because it added a link between the two songs, plus I just thought it sounded cool. A good call on my part. It was a worthwhile challenge to create another version of the Inkwell Theme using the twelve-tone techniques. Both the melody and chords follow the twelve-tone technique, using retrograde, as well as antigrade. The synth-like sound comes from the novachord, an organ-type instrument manufactured by Hammond and sold briefly from 1939 to 1942. I really wanted to use it this time, specifically as a tribute to "The Blue Fairy" (composed by Leigh Harline) from Disney's Pinnochio. The composition of this song itself, combined with the sounds of the nova chord and musical saw, results in a finish that expresses the feeling of being "possessed." Colin Maier plays the musical saw, and I play the novachord.
Joyous Promenade
In response to Studio MDHR's request (We want a fanfare-like song that plays on the world map while the Devine Relic is equipped) I decided to use my favorite song from my personal favorite game as a starting point. Cid's theme from Final Fantasy 7 heavily influenced this piece, thanks to the loud drums and relaxed theme with a celebratory mood. Nothing is more uplifting than the sound of a brass band and organ blaring in a church, and I wanted to recreate that feeling with this song. The melody is triumphant, but at the same time, it has a melancholic tone that makes you feel like you still have some regrets. I wanted to save the highest moments of joy for the ending, so I kept it low-key here. The organ is played by Stephen Boda, and the trumpet is played by Rob Weymouth.
An Ominous Stroll/Joyous Promenade (Piano)
Two piano arrangements featuring John Herberman's brilliant performance. Listening to it like this, you can clearly see how high his musicality is and how diverse his styles are. Even with the same material, just changing the instruments played brings out unexpected elements of the song, which makes it fun to compare the two versions. Without the skill of an arranger who carefully reviews the material, strips away what is unimportant, and leaves only what is necessary, it's difficult to achieve such a finish.
Delicious Last Course Release Date Trailer
This song was prepared for the trailer that was unveiled at "The Game Awards 2021." It was a real treat to create the music for this amazing puppet-style trailer produced by Screen Novelties. I wanted to cram as many nods to the bosses shown in the trailer as possible the introductory scene of Mortimer Freeze uses the same instruments as Snow Cult Scuffle. For the Sherrif Winchester scene, I included a galloping coconut sound for a western motif. The deadline was very short, and there was sadly no time to call the band members for the Glumstone the Giant section. Working out the structure of the song so that it fit perfectly with the video was like solving a puzzle, it was a lot of fun.
Caute Cave Mortem
The title for this song is Latin for "Caution, beware death." Just from that alone, you can imagine what lies ahead. Initially, we planned to play this song in the basement hallway of the bakery, and The Finishing Touch was for Saltbaker's first phase, but we decided that The Finishing Touch best suited the hallway scene, and so this song was cut. Even so, I wanted to include this song, The Finishing Touch, and Baking the Wondertart as part of a trilogy, with the intention of listening to them continuously. The eerie organ was played by Stephen Boda.
The Finishing Touch
Reusing existing material is important for both efficiency and keeping the whole soundtrack cohesive. That's why this song and Caute Cave Mortem are based almost entirely on the minor 7 chord of Saltbaker's theme, or the four notes that appear in the Inkwell Theme. I used Saltbaker's chords for the low organ clusters, clarinet passages reminiscent of the ballet "Daphnis and Chloe," and descending phrases played by various instruments. Even the flute melody and chord progression are variations on the theme of Inkwell. The reason I started this sequence in C minor was because I wanted to make effective use of the lowest possible register of the organ. Colleen Cook and Anthony Thompson on clarinet, Laura Chambers and Amelia Lyon on flute, and Conrad Glutch on the superb double bass clarinet. The strings represent the unlucky soul about to be trapped in the Wondertart. And the familiar violin and guitar sounds that symbolize Saltbaker's conscience (and Inkwell Isle Four as a whole) also begin to be heard in this song.
Baking the Wondertart
This was the first song that I began working on for the Delicious Last Course. I wanted to have a majestic Bach-esque pipe organ leading two big bands. This song is a tribute to the final boss fights of video games heard throughout the ages, in every way possible. The Latin chorus, the organ, the odd time signature... These are all typical tension-building techniques used repeatedly in a fight against a game's biggest villian. The section featured around 1:56 is reminiscent of the end of Holst's "Mars," and Mahler's 1st symphony, "Titan." I created this section first, and later reconstructed it for the opening song of this album. (I changed it into a major key and made it sound more spectacular than scary) Shortly afterwards, the melody of "A Far Off Isle" reappears. Like most of the BGM for this DLC, this song came first, and the melody and rhythm of A Far Off Isle was made through reverse engineering. My personal favorite section at 2:20 features the two bands playing the same phrase together beautifully. If at 3:24 you hear a variation of the Inkwell Theme, and if the battles of the five island's come to life in your mind, then you've done exactly what the composer intended. Throughout the song, the two big bands huddle and separate, shooting instrumental cannons at each other, much like a personal favorite Silly Symphony of mine, "Music Land." For this track, I wanted to create a piece where all 110+ musicians who took part in the project would play at the same time. Please listen with high quality headphones to catch every instrument possible. Drew Jurecka on violin, Mark Duggan on vibraphone, Stephan Boda on organ, Tedd warren and Davide DiRenzo on drums, and Paul Novotny on double bass.
Cave (Beware) Mortem (Death) Calix (Chalice) Poculum (Cup) Caput (Head) Olla (Mug) Homo (Man) Cave (Beware) Mortem (Death)
Triumphant Trio
One of the hardest things about recording during the pandemic was that we couldn't do it whenever we wanted to, so we had to record whenever we could. As a result, most of the soundtrack was recorded long before the game's release, (About a full year ahead of time!) and this song ended up with more sections than needed for the ending cutscene. It's definitely better to have more than to realize there's not enough when you can't record more. It's hard to write a song that covers all dialogue needed for each scene, but also has "pause points" so that the music can be paused until the player manually advances to the next scene. It was worth the challenge. Thanks to the talented programmers at Studio MDHR, this song fits seamlessly into the game and flows naturally with the scenes.
A Chef's Coda
This song was a lot of fun to make. I esspesially enjoyed working out the lyrics. Thanks to Peter McGillivray for providing the voice of Chef Saltbaker, who is a exquisitely pathetic character. He's not really a villian, he just went astray somewhere. Another thing to point out is that this contains some familiar tutorial themes from both the main game, and this DLC. Christina Faye on piano, Ben Bishop on guitar, and Drew Jurecka foes the whistling.
I am Chef Saltbaker I have been a naughty crook The recipe was in my book The recipe was overcooked
I should not have let all of that power go to my head Now I'll bake for good Now I'll bake my bread
I have learned my lesson I have learned my lesson well It's better to bake in heaven than to cook in hell
I'm still the best tart maker best tart maker in the land My baking will bring cheer to my new friends whom I hold dear
The Key Ingredients
Like the opening song of this album, this is also a gorgeous orchestral piece in the style of 1930's film music. I am particularly conscious of the ending of the movie "Singing in the Rain," which was composed mainly by George Stroll and Nacio Herb Brown. I wanted to finish off the DLC the way I started the main story, so I used the same melody as "Don't Deal with the Devil," and rearranged it in the style of jazz pianist Count Basie. I brought back Shoptimus Prime to do their barbershop quartet, with Kelsey Grant on the trombone.
Well Cuphead and his pal Mugman their new friend Chalice too By chance they stopped into a Bakeshop mischief was on the menu Now the debts are paid the pastries are baked There is one thing left to say The Delicious Last Course Delicious Last Course Delicious Last Course

2023.05.25 05:07 DifferentOpinionHere To me, the Golden Age of Film Scores was the 1960s-1970s-1980s, with some bleeding over into the 1950s and 1990s

When the “Golden Age” of Film Scoring is discussed by experts, they seem to make it out to be the 1930s-1940s, maybe the 1950s, as well. While great musical scores can be found in essentially any time period (the original musical score for Metropolis [1927] by Gottfried Huppertz is still overwhelmingly amazing), I think of the 1960s-through-the-1980s as the real Golden Age of movie music, with some bleeding over into the 1950s and 1990s on each end of the timeline.
Just look at some of the incredible musical scores that came out between 1960 and 1989 (in alphabetical order):
  1. 55 Days at Peking (1963; Dimitri Tiomkin)

  40. Khartoum (1966; Frank Cordell)
  41. Lawrence of Arabia (1962; Maurice Jarre)

  45. Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (1983; Ryuichi Sakamoto)

  57. RoboCop (1987; Basil Poledouris)
  58. Rocky (1976; Bill Conti)
  59. Silverado (1985; Bruce Broughton)
  60. Spartacus (1960; Alex North)

  67. The War Wagon (1967; Dimitri Tiomkin)
  68. Where Eagles Dare (1968; Ron Goodwin)
  69. The Wind and the Lion (1975; Jerry Goldsmith)
  70. Zulu (1964; John Barry)
That’s a pretty stacked thirty-year period for music. I think one reason for the greatness of this time period is its diversity of quality music. You have traditional-sounding musical scores that soar with more experimental sounds starting to find their place. Also, don’t sleep on the two adjacent decades, the 1950s and 1990s, which have some high-quality film scores as well, such as (in alphabetical order):
  1. Batman Returns (1992; Danny Elfman)
  2. Ben-Hur (1959; Miklós Rózsa)
  3. The Big Country (1958; Jerome Moross)
  4. Braveheart (1995; James Horner)
  5. Gettysburg (1993; Randy Edelman)
  6. Friendly Persuasion (1956; Dimitri Tiomkin)
  7. High Noon (1952; Dimitri Tiomkin)
  8. JFK (1991; John Williams)
  9. Jurassic Park (1993; John Williams)
  10. North by Northwest (1959; Bernard Herrmann)
  11. Rough Riders (1997; Peter Bernstein and Elmer Bernstein)
  12. Saving Private Ryan (1998; John Williams)
  13. Schindler’s List (1993; John Williams)
  14. Shane (1953; Victor Young)
  15. The Ten Commandments (1956; Elmer Bernstein)
So, what would you consider to be the Golden Age of Film Scores, if there is one at all?

.1 :57 (7:13 pace)


Background: 46m, 6'0" (182cm), 183 pounds (83 kg)
This was my 3rd HM, and 4th race overall. My first race was this same race but ran the 10k last year in 1:00:14. My very first HM was in September 2022 (1:56:56). My 2nd two weeks later had a 5 minute PB (1:51:47). With this 2nd race in the books, I set my sights on Fargo in May 2023 with a goal time of 1:45.
I knew my goal was ambitious, but with about 7 months to be able to train, I had a chance. This winter was a bit more mild in my area of the state. We got some snow, but mostly in 2 storms, once in the late fall, and once in early spring. Temps were fairly mild, there were very few days colder than -10'F (-23'C) The few snowfalls throughout the winter didn't stop me from training. Most of my training this winter was just base building. Bringing my 25 mpw up to over 30 mpw. No speed work in the snow, just running.
A friend who is an amazing marathoner who will be trying out for the Olympic team who offered to help coach/train me for this HM. Her plan was a 12 week plan that included one speed day, one long run, and 3 easy runs throughout the week. Peak mileage at approximately 35 and long run peaked at 15 miles. Since I had never really done any speed work, this plan was going to be interesting.
Mid-January some knee niggles caused concern, but didn't stop me from running. End of January, the pain was limiting. I self-diagnosed ITBS which was later confirmed by a sports medicine doctor. The doc cleared me to run, but only on a treadmill at a 5% incline as well as some other strengthening exercises to fix the muscle imbalance.
February I only logged 15 miles while resting/recovering and waiting for my doc appt. This was a huge change from the 111 miles in January. I ramped up my running pretty quickly in March, but this caused me to miss the first few weeks of my actual running plan. The plan gave me a loose guide to what I should be running.
The end of March I was feeling pretty healthy and strong, so I did a 1 mile Time Trial which I was originally supposed to do 2 weeks before the start of my plan. I managed a 6:25 mile. This is about what I expected, but was hoping for faster. Back when I was a 17 year old I managed a 4:48 but then I was in peak physical condition...and nearly 30 years younger.
This time trial helped set up some paces for my speed runs as well as confirmed that a 1:45 HM was doable (using the V.O2 calculator said a 1:40 could be possible). The speed work was difficult, but helped me feel better about running fast. March ended with 111 miles run.
April was looking good, and feeling good. I was on pace to run 150 miles. The weather was warming, the snow was melting, I was feeling very strong. Near the end of April I got hit by an illness that started in my head (I still ran) but moved into my chest (I did not run). I lost about 20 miles that last week so finished with 130 miles in April which was still the most I had ever run in a month.
The start of May I still had a slight cough and phlegm occasionally but I was feeling good, so I ran. Since I wanted to catch up some miles I missed, I added a few miles to my Sunday run. The long run that week was 15 miles which I did at an easy pace (for me 9-9:30/mile) then I added 1 mile at the end which I ran at my expected race pace (7:45). That extra mile felt hard, but good. That week I ran nearly 39 miles! My coach chastised me about the extra miles, especially this close to the race. She said that the extra miles won't really help me, but injuries and recovery time could definitely hurt me.
I followed the rest of the plan to the letter, with the minor change for fewer miles on the last long run that my coach suggested.


I got plenty of sleep the week leading up to the race (7.5-8h average) which included 6.5 hours the night before. I ate well, but nothing I don't normally eat. I went heavier on the carbs. I had one last chat with my coach going over some questions I had, concerns, and how to pace myself. One of my questions was regarding my shoes.
I had been doing 90% of my runs in Saucony Triumph 19, with my speed work in the Saucony Endorphin Speed 2. I got great deals on both of these shoes! I love the Triumphs. They are so cushiony and runs feel so good. The Speeds beat up my feet, but were supposed to be fast. My coach suggested using the Triumph shoes so the pain caused by the Speeds wouldn't be a distraction. I really should have listened, but more of that later.
Some Lasagna, a beer, and some good company (other runners) at the restaurant I ate at the night before the race and I was off to bed. I stayed at a friend's house in Fargo which made sleeping and getting out in the morning easy.
Gear: Saucony Endorphin Speed 2. Darn Tough cushioned socks, Garmin Forerunner 255, NDSU athletic shorts, dry-fit tee, 1 ear bud to listen to my audiobook (which I didn't pay attention to during the race), and Spi-Belt loaded with my phone and 3 gels.
I lined up with the 1:45 pacer even though I planned on running closer to the 1:40 finish time. My plan for the race: start conservative at 8 min/mile, after mile 3 speed up to 7:45, then last 3 miles go all out, but aim for 7:30. As most of you know, plans are really only good until the gun goes off.
This race consisted of over 2200 HM runners. For me, this is a huge race. While I expected to be faster than most, the 1:45 pacer was a lot closer to the front than I expected. After the national anthem of Canada and the USA are sung, the race begins.


Remember what I said about my race plan? Yeah, I didn't either. Thankfully my watch shows an estimated pace which allowed me to hold back a bit. My first glance showed I was running at about a 7:15 pace, so I slowed down, but kept creeping up until I checked and managed to slow down again
The first mile sees us leaving the Fargodome (race starts inside) then out onto the city streets, through residential neighborhoods, near the Red River (which floods every spring sometimes causing rerouting of the race), through "historic downtown Fargo," more residential, back through downtown Fargo. While the race isn't quite an out-and-back, it is pretty close.
Miles 1-5:
Feeling good, but I have not run at this pace sustained for more than 1-2 miles at a time. By mile 2 the crowd had spread out enough where you could run comfortably and most people had settled into their pace. It was at some point in here that I latched onto another runner who was running very consistent pace. Whenever I started drifting away from her, I was running too slow. If I was catching her, I was running too fast.
Miles 6-10:
At mile 6 I started asking myself "when can I stop?" but I didn't. I had a goal I wanted to beat. It was at this time I started catching my unofficial pacer and noticed that she was slowing down. Mile 7 water station is where I lost her. She stopped, I didn't. It was at this point I was running alone. There was some runners in front and behind me, but not really near me. This was okay because all my training runs were run alone. However, there is a lot of spectators on this course and they are always cheering you on. This helps a lot!
At mile 8 I started feeling some gas and felt I needed to release this gas. "never trust a fart after mile 2" is the adage I continually hear. After a quick test, I wasn't sure and didn't trust it. I start looking for toilets. 2 miles later still none to be found. It has gotten to the point of near emergency situation.
Miles 10-13.1
I have to go. Since we are back in residential neighborhoods there are people on their lawns cheering. I stop and ask to use their bathroom. After a confused moment, they jump up and invite me in but I need to wait for them to corral their dog. After going, I head back out, thanking these random people profusely for their kindness. I lost about 1.5 minutes.
I get back into my pace but notice that running is harder now. I look at my watch and notice I'm running 8:10, not the 7:45 I had been. I push faster. A minute later I check my watch and the above is repeated. I continue repeating this same thing for the last few miles and still manage sub-8 minute miles.
Within the last 1.5 miles we join with the 10k racers, but they are on one side of the street while we are on the other. I notice there are quite a few HM runners walking, some stopped completely hunched over (puking??? resting???). I am passing people that likely passed me when I had to stop. Running is HARD! The last half mile the Fargodome comes back into sight and I know the end is near. Once we enter the parking lot I pick up my pack a bit more. Someone calls out my name and cheers me on. I was hoping for a sprint to the finish, but there just wasn't the energy to do so. I still manage a strong finish crossing the line at 1:43:10!
I did it. I beat 1:45!!!!!
During this race I set PB in the following:
5k - 23:36 (previous 24:55)
10k - 47:41 (previous 1:00:14)
HM - 1:43:12 (previous 1:51:47)


My feet hurt...a lot. I really should have listened to my coach when she suggested not running in the Endorphin Speeds that had hurt my feet during workouts. I wound up with 2 inch (5cm) blisters on the ball of each of my feet. They are finally feeling better 5 days after the race.
I grab my medal, some snacks, and rest a bit looking for my coach and other friend that ran the same race. After about 10 minutes I realized I had dropped a bag and should go get it. The lines are freaking HUGE!!! And worse, they weren't moving. It took over 30 minutes to get my bag. I will never drop a bag again. I will leave my stuff in the car and carry my fob/key.
I drink my recovery drink I had packed into my bag, changed shoes, and went home without being able to meet up with my friends. Besides my feet, I feel good. My legs don't hurt at all. If it weren't for my feet, I would have been running again Sunday or Monday. Fargo is a very flat race and the organization (excluding bag drop) is fantastic! Lovely people and good support.
Now the training for my first full marathon in September in Bismarck, ND begins!

BioLargo (OTCQB:BLGO) - Environmental Solutions and Engineering Services


BLGO represents the majority of my portfolio. My first shares were purchased on March 1, 2021 and I have consistently bought shares throughout the last 27 months.
BioLargo is an environmental engineering company. There are 5 divisions of the company. 2 of them (BLEST and BioLargo Water) focus primarily on water treatment. ONM Environmental focuses on odoVOC control in both the industrial sector and as a wholesale distributor for a consumer pet odor control product. BETI is new in 2023 and is developing sodium-sulfur battery technology. Clyra is a medical subsidiary that develops products based on a copper-iodine chemistry that has safe but incredibly powerful oxidation capabilities for infection control in surgical settings.

Currently pushed up against the \"ceiling\" of the Oct 2022-Present compression. Still have to shake the 2019-Present compression (top red line). 2008-September 2022 \"Ceiling\" was broken out of. Green floor has been firm and rising since 2021.
2023 Q1 10-Q Filing 2023 Q1 Earnings Call Recording
Market Cap: $55M ($0.19/share)
Total Outstanding Shares: 284M Outstanding Options: 30M options outstanding ($0.12-$0.43 exercise price, $0.19 average price) Outstanding Warrants: 52M warrants ($0.13-$1.00 exercise price, $0.26 average price)

CEO: Dennis Calvert
Losses are decreasing. Growth is primarily from ONM Environmental.

ONM Environmental generating more cash-flow, bringing company close to profitability despite being the only division with positive cash flow.

Debt is basically gone.

SG&A has remained consistent as revenue has grown across recent years.

Net Stockholder’s Equity has steadily risen. $5M net stockholder equity is required for listing on the Nasdaq.

ONM Environmental – VOC/Odor Control

ONM Environmental Website - CupriDyne Website
ONM Environmental (“Odor No More) is the original division of the company. The flagship product is CupriDyne Clean which is a copper-iodine complex that oxidizes odor and VOC. It is sold in the industrial sector to landfills, waste transfer stations, US Air Force Bases, wastewater treatment plants, automotive manufacturers, marijuana growing facilities, animal processors etc. Overall, industrial sales of CupriDyne have been underwhelming from my POV, but the underlying technology has found homes elsewhere, making the asset and the division successful for BioLargo.
ONM Environmental has partnered with an advertising firm (Ikigai Holdings) and launched a consumer pet odor control product (POOPH) for household use. Pooph Website/Commercial. One of selling points for CupriDyne/POOPH is its safety. In the commercial, the product is sprayed directly into the host’s mouth to demonstrate its safety. The product uses the same baseline chemistry as CupriDyne Clean.
BioLargo serves as manufacturing and wholesaler for Ikigai who is in control of the marketing and selling of the product. BioLargo receives a 6% royalty on Ikigai’s sales of Pooph and receives revenue from acting as the supplier for Pooph. Overall, BioLargo receives about 25% of Pooph’s total sales.
POOPH is being sold direct-to-consumer, on Amazon, on (largest online pet supply), and is stocked in about 60% of Walmart locations. POOPH is consistently in the top-50 for pet products on Amazon.
From the LinkedIn page of Jordan Stanley, one of Ikigai’s co-founders:
“Over the following 10 years, I earned the reputation of an undisputed leader in Direct Response TV, producing such well-known campaigns as Billy Mays’ OxiClean, Procter& Gamble’s Tide, Febreze, and Downy brands. Throughout that time I have continued writing and producing winning commercials through Blue Moon Studios and Concepts for Doggie Steps (Telebrands), Finishing Touch (IdeaVillage), and Snuggies (Allstar). Out of 45,000 commercials in the Procter & Gamble database dating back over 60 years, the commercials I have written, directed and produced have achieved "highest-scoring, best-performing commercials" for Downy, Febreze, Dryel, Ivory Snow laundry products and have the distinction of being the "#1 best-performing 2-minute spot". I have the distinction of having 2 spots in the top 10 as measured by ASI/Ipsos. Using my method, about $3 Billion of revenue has been generated to date.”
Ikigai’s goal is to generate $100M+ in annual sales and then seek a brand sale of 3x-7x of annual sales ($300M-$700M). Ikigai has done this before with products like Finishing Touch/Flawless, which is a beauty-care product line that they sold for $900M. That brand sale was valued at 5x annual sales. Flawless/Finishing Touch Brand Sale
The estimated payout to BioLargo if/when the brand sells is $100M. As of Q1 2023, BioLargo is receiving roughly $1M/month from Pooph sales. That means Ikigai is at roughly $50M in annual sales rate after less than 18 months since first sales of the product. Ikigai has stated their expectations for 20% QoQ growth for POOPH. If that holds true, they will be at a $100M annual run-rate by Q1 2024.
ONM Environmental was the only profitable division in 2022, generating $1.13M in operating income from $4.37M total revenue. This was primarily revenue generated from POOPH, with 86% of total BioLargo 2023 Q1 revenue being POOPH revenue.

BioLargo Engineering, Science, and Technologies Inc. (BLEST)

BLEST is the most diverse and exciting part of the company to me. The core of the group is a half dozen engineers who were brought on in 2017 after CB&I laid off their entire unit during some turmoil for the company. They were working with BLGO at the time, and Dennis pitched to them that they form BLEST and continue working as the unit that they had been for 20-30 years in their previous role, but with more freedom and flexibility working for an emerging company rather than a giant company like CB&I. They agreed and are based out of Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
BLEST is led by Randall Moore. Randall has a 30+ year career in environmental engineering, leading over 1000 employees at times in his career. He has done 1000s of projects. Randall assisted the US Post Office during the Anthrax Crisis. He helped to design and implement the efforts to pump out New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. He helped during the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He worked on the aftermath of the Fukushima Disaster. He designed and built the largest dioxin remediation facility in the world. Randall has worked professionally on a diverse set of projects at the highest caliber. He and the rest of the BLEST team are essential to the ability to execute stated goals, continue product development, and complete project design work.
BLEST serves 3 roles. They are here to invent new technologies. They are here to support the engineering and design work for other divisions. They are here to complete engineering work for clients.
BLEST Technologies and Projects: Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC) for PFAS remediation, Minimal Liquid Discharge (MLD) Systems via Garratt Callahan partnership, engineering and design work for what (if goes to full scale) will be the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world, engineering and design work for Ultra Safe Nuclear Company (USNC) for their fuel production system for micro-modular reactors.
The above technologies will be discussed later. AEC, Waste-to-Energy, and USNC projects have all been engaged by clients, with the initial phases completed and the second phases scoped . Each have a proposal in the client’s hands, awaiting approval. Many technologies or projects seem very close to strong adoption or progression to future stages, but none of them have really gotten fully there. If the technologies gain more consistent traction, BLEST’s headcount will have to grow, as will their revenues.
BLEST incurred a loss of $425k in 2022 on total revenue of $1.94M.

BioLargo Water

BioLargo Water does research and development of the Advanced Oxidation System (AOS) which is a water disinfection and micropollutant destruction technology. The division is headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta and gets quite a bit of their funding and support via the Canadian government.
AOS has been used in pilot projects for stormwater treatment, brewery wastewater treatment, poultry water treatment, pharmaceutical/micropollutant removal in Montreal’s municipal facility. They have submitted a proposal to the Alberta EPA to validate the technology for use in poultry water treatment in the province, however, not much has been said since that was made public in June 2022.

AOS provides disinfection of E coli and other microorganisms. AOS also destroys tough contaminants like pharmaceuticals and micropollutants like benzene.
AOS is hard to pin down. Technically, it’s unique and very capable It has been in development for almost a decade and is yet to find a reliably commercial home. For now, it’s just been pilots and peer-reviewed journal articles published in scientific journals. My science brain loves AOS. My finance brain hates it. The company isn't churning through resources to try to commercialize, so it's not killing the company, but the combination of duration of development, unique and high level technical function, and lack of commercial success is a confusing one.
AOS Product Brochure - Quebec Pilot - Sunworks Poultry Pilot
BioLargo Water did not generate revenue in 2022 and incurred $714k in losses in 2022, which was primarily R&D budget.

BioLargo Energy Technologies Inc. (BETI)

BETI is a new subsidiary in 2023. BioLargo owns 97% of BETI with a small group of investors holding the remaining 3% of shares. The capital was raised at a valuation of $20M for BETI.
Its purpose is to commercialize sodium-sulfur battery technology. One of the original inventors (Mario Caja) of the technology has been brought on to see that through as a member of the BETI team. He has been working on molten salt battery technology for 30 years. Presently, the company is putting the capital that they raised into building small manufacturing capabilities in their Oak Ridge, Tennessee facility.
May 9, 2023 Interview Transcript
Regarding lithium and sodium ion batteries, Dennis Calvert – CEO:
“Those are exotics, lithium, cobalt, nickel, those are rare earth elements that are really mined in offshore. So foreign supply's a big problem. That's one issue. The other is, of course, they're rare, so the price is going crazy, and then the other is efficiency. Lithium has efficiency issues. It only lasts 6, 7, 8 years. Everybody's working on that. They get 80-20% efficiencies, they can't charge to 100%, it builds up dendrites. So the world's looking for a better battery for certain locations.
So our battery checks the box on a number of those long lasting domestic supply, no rare earth, 100% efficiency. We've even got an energy density that's 2.9 times that of lithium, which means a lot of power in that battery.
It's a little heavier, and it's really not designed to be in a mobile situation. It's more of the fixed site that would go adjacent to solar, like a EV charging station or solar power generation operation or grid balancing. So long-term energy storage is really where we're focused. And that's a void in the market because as, you know, JP Morgan was quoted recently saying that, ‘the battery industry would surpass that of the chip industry in the next decade.’"
On the last quarterly call (May 18), Dennis stated that they expect to be able to sell any and all batteries that they bring to market that meet the claims they have made. He said that within 4-6 months, they expect to have built a small battery facility in Oak Ridge and prototypes. On May 24, 2023 (Sequire Presentation) Dennis stated that revenue can start to be substantial in 6-9 months.
In late 2022, BioLargo added Christina Bray to their board of directors. She is the CEO of an electric vehicle charging company (BlueDot Energies). Christina Bray PR
BETI is very new and the available proven details are relatively sparse compared to some of the other parts of BioLargo's portfolio. Seems like a lot of potential, but more must be shown.

Clyra Medical

Clyra Medical is a bit surprising on the surface. What is an environmental engineering company doing in the medical field? The original inventor at the company (Kenneth Code) sought to create a chemistry that would help be helpful in infection control, as that was something his father was struggling with at the time. The result was a copper-iodine complex, which is very similar to the baseline chemistry that ONM Environmental uses for CupriDyne Clean in the ONM Environmental division.
Clyra Medical was formed so that the subsidiary could raise its own capital, independently of BioLargo. It is an asset that is 58% owned by BioLargo. Recently, Clyra has been selling shares to fund production of their first product that has 510k clearance from the FDA, BioClynse. BioClynse Product Brochure
BioClynse produces a very strong oxidation reaction, much like how CupriDyne does for odoVOC control. BioClynse is for use during surgery for infection control and can be used after the fact if a knee or hip replacement gets infected following a procedure. The product is gentle enough to be left in the body when the patient is sewn up and provides lasting infection control, including disruption of biofilm. No rinse is required, which is unique.
Other products that came to market and were successful across the last decade are starting to come into question because of toxicity concerns to tissue. The company believes that not only has the wound irrigation market expanded dramatically and will continue to, but that it is no longer being met by incumbent products.
Regarding BioClynse Efficacy and FDA Point-Of-View:
"The questions they asked us were 'You must be lying, because this has never happened before.' When we finally got through, it took us another $1.8M and about 2 years from that first moment, the reviewer said 'This is the lowest concentration of antimicrobial at this level of performance that the agency has ever seen.' And therein lies the special thing that we've been talking about since we started this company (Clyra), and it's now finally positioned to be in a very significant commercial role."
BioClynse is expected to begin selling more substantially to orthopedic surgeons in Q2 and Q3. They have entered into a production agreement and are in negotiations with distribution partners (Clyra Production Agreement). Capital is being used to fund production. They have spent 2022 and the first parts of 2023 building out a sales rep network and “showing off” the product at industry events with significant positive response according to the company.
Clyra Medical’s goal is to build up the company and to be spun off with the sale of Clyra to a larger medical company. Recently, capital has been raised around a $32M valuation (Reported during Q2 2022 Earnings Call, so may have changed a bit since then). As a subsidiary with just the very beginnings of commercial activity, I don’t anticipate that any spin-off would happen anytime soon, but if 2023 is the year they go commercial with a high margin product like BioClynse, that clock should begin and become less of a theory than it has been.
Regarding Future Product Development and Coronavirus Allowance:
"We were given notice of allowance for use of Clyra against coronavirus. Coronavirus is a very broad category, not just Covid, it's Middle-Eastern, SARS, it's everything, probably 300 different variations of upper respritory infections and lung disease. That opens up the pathway for us to pursue drug applications for nebulizer therapy, inhalant therapy, nasal sprays, throat sprays, and have good IP coverage. This is good IP coverage. We were denied 4 times. We kept going back and fighting for this, and finally the patent office said: You know what, you got it. They gave us a very broad allowance, and we're going to continue to expand on that. That has major implications in a drug pathway for these Clyra products, which we've always believed the tough part wasgetting the patent done, but we have that."
Clyra Medical added 2 members to their board in 2022. Clyra Board Additions. Nick Valeriani spent 34 years at Johnson and Johnson, particularly with wound control (Neosporin). Nick serves on the board of $50B-valued Edwards Lifesciences ($EW). Linda Park is the Senior Vice President, Associate General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary for Edwards Lifesciences. She also joined as a member of the BioLargo board. It has been stated that Linda has been brought on partially for her expertise and guidance as BioLargo seeks to uplist in future to a national market like the Nasdaq.
Clyra Medical incurred a loss of $1.38M in 2022, bringing in just $56k what was essentially a few initial users of BioClynse in a professional setting.

BLEST Technologies and Projects

Garratt-Callahan – Minimal Liquid Discharge (MLD) Devices
In 2021, BioLargo announced that Garratt Callahan (largest private water company in North America) approached them to ask for help finalizing the design of their Minimal Liquid Discharge technology. GC MLD Announcement BioLargo helped them finish the design and will serve as the manufacturer of the product. The product has patent coverage through Garratt Callahan. GC MLD Patent
The MLD systems are water reuse devices that take the mineral content out of water streams for use in things like cooling towers. The devices allow for an industrial water user to stretch their water budget significantly further, bringing value to clients in both reducing their water costs, but also allowing them to continue their planned operations in an environment where water availability may fluctuate based on hydrologic/drought conditions. Potential clients would be data centers, energy generation, and industrial water users.
BioLargo will make money from the manufacturing and sale of the unit (approximately $500k per unit), while Garratt Callahan will make their money from the operation of the machines.
It was expected that these units would begin being sold in 2022, however that did not happen. A factory acceptance test was successfully completed in February of 2022 ("FAT" Acceptance) , however contracts have not been announced BioLargo maintains confidence in the future of these devices and states that they are involved with a dozen or more negotiations and design work for potential projects. If those projects are confirmed, GC MLD devices can be a strong revenue stream through an established water treatment company.
GC maintains that 30-50 units can be moved annually, but that is hard to predict when the first one will be sold and if 30-50 per year is a reasonable expectation given the delayed rollout. If they can accomplish that, however, it would bring in $15M-$25M annually.
Garratt Callahan has also agreed to sell AEC for PFAS remediation (discussed below). BioLargo has stated that a few of their potential PFAS remediation projects expected to move forward soon are ones that GC brought to the table.

Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation – Fuel Production Design Work
Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation (USNC) is designing micro-modular nuclear reactors. Part of that design is a new fuel system (FCM/TRISO-fuel). They have contracted BioLargo Engineering to help design their fuel production facility in Oak Ridge, Tennesse (also where BLEST is headquartered) which opened in August 2022. Fuel Production Facility - USNC/BLEST Collaboration - Pilot Fuel Manufacturing Facility Opens - FCM/TRISO Fuel Information
Phase 1 of the project was completed. Phase 2 has gotten a verbal “yes”, but a signed contract has not been announced officially yet.
April 24, 2023 Prospectus
"In the second quarter of 2022, BLEST was contracted by Ultra Safe Nuclear to assist in producing the first prototype fuel production systems for their new nuclear reactor called the Micro Modular Reactor (MMR®). Ultra Safe Nuclear is a Seattle-based nuclear energy company that has invented a “fission battery” - a fourth generation modular nuclear reactor – that can deliver safe, zero-carbon, cost-effective energy anywhere. The MMR® uses ceramic-encapsulated nuclear fuel – Fully Ceramic Micro-encapsulated (FCM+++) – an extremely rugged and stable fuel with high temperature stability. BioLargo has been retained to provide engineering design support, fabrication, and integration for the company’s prototype fuel production systems. Because of the success of the early phase of the project, this project is expected to expand over the coming months in scope and significance to BioLargo, making them an important customer for BLEST."

Waste to Energy – Design Work
BioLargo was contracted to begin design work on a waste to energy conversion project in South America. The facility being designed would be the largest waste-to-energy conversion plant in the world if it goes to its full scale. The project has 10 years of planning and preparation behind it. The project would be 6 phases, and the company has estimated that all 6 phases would be around $50M in design work.
Waste to Energy PR
The first phase was a feasibility study and was completed. BioLargo has given a proposal for Phase 2 and is awaiting the green light from the client. The timeline to begin Phase 2 has been slower than originally expected (as seen in June 2022 image below). On the last call, there was mention of political instability in South America giving some pause to decision-making at this time, but the BioLargo continues to maintain that they are in good standing with the client and the project is in good standing overall. The client has brought 4 more projects to BioLargo in Southeast Asia.

“This developer has actually brought us 4 more projects. This one has moved from Phase 1 to Phase 2. Phase 2 will push over $1 million. Phase 3 will probably be in the $7.5 million range.”

“In April 2022, our engineering subsidiary was hired by a Southern California based sustainable energy services company to conduct a comprehensive project plan (i.e., “feasibility study”) for a waste-to-energy (WTE) conversion plant in South America – one of multiple projects in planning stages by the company. Our engineers completed the initial feasibility study and have delivered a proposal for the next phase of the project (front end engineering design, aka FEED). The client has also requested feasibility studies and a FEED proposal for WTE plants in Asia.”
From June 2022 Annual Shareholder's Meeting - note: Stage 1 is complete. Stage 2 has not begun.

PFAS Remediation:

The Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC) is likely the biggest opportunity in the BLEST portfolio. BioLargo has one active project that has been contracted for PFAS remediation. They are awaiting approval from the client to begin the next phase and scale towards a full installation. During a May 24, 2023 (day of making this post) presentation with Sequire, Dennis mentioned that Phase 1 is complete and they are expecting to move to Phase 2 in the near future. Phase 2 would be $500k-$1M and would take 6-9 months. Phase 3 to go to full scale would be a $15M-$20M in expected revenue. It would also provide a full-scale installation to lean on for proof of function and scaling for clients to have confidence in.
AEC is a PFAS collection technology. PFAS “Forever Chemicals” are compounds that are designed to not break down through natural processes. The EPA is in the process of setting drinking water standards for PFAS that would impact 65,000 drinking water systems across the country. Incumbent technologies (Granular Activated Carbon and Ion Exchange Resin) face performance and regulatory challenges moving forward as the EPA’s proposed regulations come closer to taking effect.
In March 2023, they proposed federal drinking water standards of 4ppt for PFOS and PFOA (the two main compounds), and a combined weighted limit for 4 other PFAS compounds based on their health advisories. The regulations are expected to firm up in the coming months after necessary comment periods and EPA process etc. Federal Proposal
PFAS waste is on a trajectory to be designated as HazMat under CERCLA (HazMat Classification). When used for municipal drinking water remediation, incumbent technologies produce several tons of PFAS-laden carbon or PFAS-laden resin. Recently, Cape Fear removed almost 200 tons of PFAS-laden carbon waste from their facility (Cape Fear Waste). Cape Fear is a very large system, but even a mid-size municipal system ends up having to consider the liability of that amount of HazMat waste on a recurring basis. That “changeout period” becomes more frequent when the drinking water standards get lower.

At 9.6ng/L, the data in the right column has too high PFAS concentration to pass proposed federal limits. 4ng/L and the detection limit are very similar levels of PFAS contamination (1-2ng/L is consistent detection limit usually). 2.7-7.1 Month range for GAC and IX technologies (standard incumbents). Lower regulatory standards will require more frequent changeout of media.
The media used for GAC projects can be regenerated. Ion exchange media cannot be regenerated. GAC waste can only be regenerated for future use in some parts of the United States. The legality of that process has come into question due to concerns about releasing PFAS emissions into the air (DoD Incineration/Regeneration Ban). Some users continue to regenerate the material while the EPA goes through the process to regulate PFAS.
If regeneration is not allowed, the material will end up requiring HazMat landfilling and not be able to be regenerated for future use. That will make remediation with GAC much more complicated and expensive. It will increase the total cost of changing out carbon material by requiring more new material to be used, but also increasing disposal costs of waste. Several tons of waste (200 tons in Cape Fear) now need to be sent to a HazMat landfill.

How Many Municipal Drinking Water PFAS Remediation Projects Will be Necessary?: West Virginia recently tested 37 water systems. 19 of them would be out of federal compliance if the proposed federal standards were implemented (WV PFAS Testing). 37 systems is not a huge sample size, but this is reasonable when compared to what I have found when looking at other state-level data across the country.
If 50% of systems require remediation, that is around 32k projects just for drinking water. For reference, if there are 32k projects for half of the US population that require remediation, the average number of residents served by a system is just over 5,000, though that number will have quite a large range with some water systems serving hundreds of thousand residents..
PFAS Remediation Project Examples: In Dover, New Hampshire, a 1.1M gallon per day facility was approved for $13.9M. This was for the treatment of half of the water supply for a population of 33,000 residents. (Dover Project Details)
The project for Wausau has a cost estimate of $23M (Wausau Cost Estimate). Wausau Water serves 16000 customers (40,000 residents) and treats just over 4M gallons of water per day (Wausau Customer and Daily Flow).
Cape Fear, NC has $43M up front costs with $5M annual costs to operate (Cape Fear Costs). The facility is 44M gallons per day (Cape Fear - Size).

Municipal Water PFAS Remediation Cost Estimate: Municipal drinking water projects are generally $5-$50M caliber projects. Small town projects can be $1M-$5M, and the largest projects will end up being over $100M.
Before the federal Orange County Water District (1% of the population of the United States) estimates a total of $1B will be required for the remediation of their water systems (OCWD Estimate). That is a figure from 2020 and is expected to have increased since then.
If you use Orange County’s estimate across the United States, it will cost over $100B for municipal drinking water.
The EPA estimates that PFAS remediation will cost between $769M and $1.2B annually (EPA Estimate). American Water Works Association (AWWA) estimates up to $2.9B annually (AWWA Estimate).

What About PFAS Remediation Outside of Municipal Drinking Water? I won’t attempt to do the same thing for other water treatment sectors. You'd probably stop reading if you don't already want to. It is important to note that drinking water is only part of what will require PFAS remediation projects.
Industrial water users (landfills, oil/gas, papepulp production, metal processing/finishing, wastewater treatment facilities) will require remediation equipment.
Groundwater remediation takes place when there is a contaminated aquifer due to a spill or through things like spreading biosolids from wastewater treatment plants on farmland. If the biosolids have PFAS in them (which many do), then the groundwater is contaminated because the PFAS has been applied across the soils.
Surface water remediation can be required if high levels of PFAS are found. It isn’t clear what the EPA is planning to do with surface water, but some states have attempted to set concentration limits.
Many of the specifics still need to be firmed up by the EPA, but in general it is safe to assume that the estimated $769M-$2.9B that is estimated for PFAS remediation of municipal drinking water annually will not begin to represent the total cost of PFAS remediation in the United States.
Any company that has leading PFAS remediation technology has the opportunity to tap into a gigantic emerging market that is going to be backed by federally enforceable drinking water standards.

Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC):

AEC Product Video - BioLargo's PFAS Website - AEC Product Brochure
AEC functions by running water across (not through) a membrane while applying electric charge. PFAS compounds are fused to the membrane and removed from the water supply. AEC only removes the PFAS compounds, which is unique for collection technologies. Materials like granular activated carbon remove all contaminants, meaning that it is very inefficient for PFAS removal since PFAS is found in such low concentrations. This is important because remediation using GAC will produce much more waste than it will with AEC (up to 1000x depending on specific water chemistry). A user of AEC doesn’t have to worry about managing several dozen tons of waste every changeout period.
Tonya Chandler on AEC Footprint and Waste Production vs. Incumbent Technologies:
How do we measure up size-wise? Well, fairly similar to a GAC system. The difference is that when you see all of our frames, I don’t need to be skidded. I could line the walls with those frames. I can drop those frames – we’ve got one customer that wants to drop them into a pit that’s in their system that they don’t use anymore. I can stack them on top of each other to create space. As long as I have maintenance room around them, I’m pretty flexible on the layout. But you’ll see I produce much less spent (media). Now, also note that that GAC number that I’m giving you there is a single pass. I’m not considering a lead-lag in that number.
GAC vs AEC Waste and Footprint Comparison – note: AEC changeout period is expected to be longer than GAC changeout period. Disposal when spent does not represent the same period of time.
Orange County Water District - AEC can produce \"Non-Detect\" results all 27 tested PFAS compounds.
Tonya Chandler on AEC Origin, Design and Function:
“The AEC stands for the Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator, and they decided that they wanted to use the polarity of the PFAS against it. The hypothesis was that if they created some chambers that had a series of electrodes and some specialized membranes, they might be able to pull the PFAS out and create a concentrated stream. The goal was to produce a stream that met the standards. They thought, ‘well if we did multiple stages, we could probably create DI-water. They wanted to stay low energy, and they wanted the cost to be affordable.
What they found was not what they expected. When we did the initial testing on this, they found that no concentrated stream existed, although we were removing the PFAS, we weren’t finding it in the anode stream. They were able to remove 99% of the PFAS in a single pass through the system. They got a side benefit of low-energy desalination in all of this, and they got their low cost at about 30 cents per 1000 gallons.
The biggest concern for us was why we didn’t create a concentrated stream. What we found was that we were literally ripping the PFAS out of the water, and when they came in contact with the membrane that we have in there, it fused to the membrane, and once it fused to the membrane, PFAS fuses to itself, so we were able to create a system that all of the PFAS stayed on the membrane but we were able to get very high concentrations of PFAS on the membrane before it was spent.”

From September 2022 Tonya Chandler Presentation to Wisconsin Engineers
From 2023 10-Q Report:
“We have successfully validated the AEC as an effective system to selectively extract and collect PFAS chemicals from contaminated water including performance testing that shows “non-detect” levels of removal, which meets new EPA standards. We have demonstrated more than nine months of continuous operation showing no materially significant degradation of the AEC system’s components or performance over time. As a modular system, we believe the AEC is scalable to a commercial scale, and we believe that our engineering team has the experience to deliver systems to meet the needs of a commercial installation."

Dennis on Small Commercial-Scale AEC units:
"These are new – we have three of these. We just got – just built and what will happen with these machines is they go out into the field where we go through early testing program. We identify a spot, where we can work with a client the customer, and we say, let's as an additional step just to make sure, let's bring one of these out, park it into their location for three or four weeks, run some samples, run some tests and show our customer, our prospective customer that says that, the device can be well suited for the custom circumstances that surround that customer's water source.”

2023.05.24 04:10 TheYankee17762 An Army With A State - The Tragedy of Japan

By: Hora Yuriko
Date: December 12, 1972
LOS ANGELES- When reading Voltaire in College, there was one line that stood out to me, "Where some states have an army, the Prussian Army has a state." This while being directed at the ancient state of Prussia, described the Imperial Japanese Army perfectly, in a way that I could never describe it, Japan didn't have the Imperial Japanese Army, the Imperial Japanese Army had Japan. An observation that has become ever more true as the civilian government's attempt to restrain the army and hold them accountable for their crimes ended with a bloody coup.
Ever since then, Japan has transformed into a black box, where one only knows one thing, whatever is happening, is not good. A few years before then, I was done studying journalism at the University of Southern California, I had a choice to return home to Japan or stay in the US. The US had many more opportunities than Japan with the largest newspaper companies in the world and the highest salaries for journalists anywhere in the world, yet at the same time, Japan was my home, where my and my future husband's families lived, where we grew up, and where there seemed to be an exciting hope of liberalization and further prosperity.
When I made the decision to stay in the US, I did not know that I had made the smartest and the most haunting choice in my entire life as in my horror I watched my TV in my American suburban home when I watched live footage of the Japanese tanks smashing through the gates of the National Diet building, thinking of my father, my mother, my sister, my brother and my grandfather who were completely helpless in the face of this new government. I was able to call them for a few days afterwards, to comfort them and to plan to get them to the US.
Then one day, when I called, the operator told me that Japan had cut all phone lines with countries outside of the Co-Proseperity Sphere. From that day forth, I promised myself that one day I would return to Japan and that I would at least check on my family to see if they were still alive.
The Los Angeles Times producers dismissed my proposal to do a report on Japan under military rule for months on end, citing concerns that it would be too dangerous to send a person to a country where the government had a complete and strictly enforced ban on foreign journalists. Yet with enough "classic American persistence", as my husband calls it, I was able to convince the editors to help me enter and exit Japan under the pretense that once I entered Japan I would be completely on my own and that I understood the extreme risk of this procedure.
The trip back home was smoother than I expected, I took a plane to Anchorage, then one to Magdan. I then drove by bus to the Russian-Manchurian border where a man took me on a boat and got me across undetected by the border police. From there I took a plane to Tokyo. The true problems began once I landed. As soon as I exited the plane, 4 soldiers demanded to check my luggage. After 20 minutes, they demanded a bribe, which I gave, and then was released. This is something common in most totalitarian states, yet in Japan, the level this happened was almost comical. On 6 separate occasions getting through the airport, I was forced to stop, and let the soldiers search my luggage to either say everything was fine or demand a bribe. By the time I left for the airport bus station, I was wondering if I would even have any money by the time I would reach my parent's home.
When I left, the streets were often clogged with cars, made by one of Japan's many car producers, yet our bus was able to drive forward with no traffic. In fact, I saw a great deal more bikes on the road than cars, from napkin math, it was around a 30 to 1 ratio. When I asked an elderly lady on the bus about this, she responded, "The military wanted steel, so they got steel".
Another thing that I found different looking out the bus window was the massive amounts of billboards that advertised military recruitment or other government-backed messages. Some of these signs were typical, talking of honor and glory and encouraging people to start a family or quit drinking, yet some of these signs were extremely disturbing praising violence toward "enemies of the state", asking the reader to "report anti-Japanese actions of family and friends, the Emperor demands it" or the creepiest one of all a sign with 2 eyes peering at the viewer with the text, "There are things worse than death. If you are guilty, turn yourself in, immediately or suffer."
But there was more than just billboards that were disturbing in this atmosphere, military checkpoints were almost everywhere, with soldiers pointing heavy machine guns at the bus, while they ask the bus driver for paperwork and a list of people on the bus. In a haunting experience, at one checkpoint, 2 soldiers found a woman that was declared "an enemy of the state". I will never forget her cries for help and mercy as her skinny-to-the-bone body was slammed by the butts of assault rifles, needlessly and endlessly, until being mercifully dragged across the ground. The most shocking thing of all was that I was the only one on the bus horrified by what I saw. When I asked the elderly woman why she seemed unfazed, she responded, "Honey, these things sometimes happen."
When the bus finally stops at my stop, I rushed out, feeling thankful to the universe that those soldiers never figured out that I was a journalist. The trip back home was mercifully quick as my surprised family warmly welcomed me back home. The tension I felt thus far was eliminated when I talked to my loving family and saw that they were all okay, all alive. I even for a moment forgot that I was in military Japan, that was until it was time for dinner. My Mom was known across as the best cook in the neighborhood cooking everything from pork curry to yaki ongini with butter sauce for me and my siblings. So I was shocked when my mom served me, a bowl of plain rice for dinner. When I asked her why there was no curry, I saw her face immediately go sour. She responded, eyes gazing downwards, "I cannot buy anything besides rice."
I talked with my family for a little while longer catching up with them, until we heard a hard bang on the window. It was a soldier boy, someone who was too young to work as a soldier but still work for the military in a civilian role, whose duty was to warn people before real soldiers would quote, "smash all the lightbulbs in the offending household". I and my family rushed across the house to make sure that every light was turned off. It was creepy to see the road that was often filled with so much life at night, with entire complexes being filled with chatter and music until midnight to become so dead at 9 pm.
The only things I heard that night was the engines of tanks, APCs, and military trucks and the footsteps and chattering of the occasional group of soldiers, some off-duty, some on-duty. When morning came, I had yet another bowl of rice with my family until I decided to explore the city. Exploring it on foot gave me a more intimate experience of the horrors of this new Japan, what struck me now was how skinny everyone was, I could see the ribcages of some of the shirtless men that I passed by on the streets. When I passed my neighborhood grocery store, there were lines for blocks and when I peered through the dirty windows, I could see that there was only rice, and seemingly not enough for everyone. Just observing the line for about 20 minutes or so, that the line didn't work on a first-come, first-served basis, some were able to skip the line if they had military id or bribe the guards at the entrance of the store. It became clear to me that those who wouldn't return home without a bag of rice were the ones who needed it the most. The only people that seemed healthy were the military men and those related to military men. Then I spotted something that made me vomit, a former candy store from the youth, that still had the colorful swirls yet now had a metal sign that said, "National Suicide Post #56".
I could smell the dead bodies from the outside of the building. To my horror, there were at least 30 men and women lined up outside. When I asked one of them, Mura Nori, who was so mentally ill he could barely talk about anything coherently, was able to tell me in summary about how since the military shut down his mental hospital, they told him that as a Burakumin, the Japanese version of an untouchable, suicide was his only option. Breaking the classical rule of journalism, I tried to convince Mura not to kill himself. Yet my pleas meant nothing as a soldier pushed me away and he passed those heavy doors.
Death, something so foreign in the old Japan, was now a constant mainstay, just when I left the horrific vision of a suicide post, I was then greeted with another sight of death as the military organized a public execution of 5 people, all with bags placed on their heads, all being faced by a firing squad. People gathered around, in fear as the officer spoke of their supposed crime of "high treason" on a megaphone before a moment of silence followed by the loud bangs of rifles. Their bodies were no longer visible with the crowds blocking the views, but the officer proclaimed it so and the people reacted accordingly. Some were cheering, some people cried, some people screamed, yet a great many more just stared, blankly like they experienced collective shell shock.
As I continued down childhood streets, the common mom & pop stores all had new owners, which conveniently were all military people. I reflected on the hope that existed before, a society that was becoming increasingly liberal, increasingly free, and increasingly open to the world. The Japan that I saw before me, was unrecognizable, a landscape where hope was stomped into the ground. The people no longer seemed happy and cheerful, the people I saw all looked dead, all their life, gone, crushed into the ground. The only people that seemed happy were the soldiers, who drank Saki, played cards, snacked on mochi, occasionally demanded bribes from passers-by, and sometimes cat-called me or other women passing them by.
Despite the number of soldiers I saw, many refused an interview, but one soldier, Shimizu Hisao, agreed to talk to me. Hisao told me of his experience growing up in a small farming village in the Shimane province. He spoke about how he was one of the few people in his village that had the appropriate rations to get meat, cheese, or noodles. When I asked him about the seeming increasing poverty, he repeated a government talking point "We sold our souls to OFN and conducted a witch hunt against our own military that protected us for generations. The military has liberated us from the degenerate Western lifestyle." He further added his own experience that, "The countryside was never rich, we were always poor. But now the government has given us back our own produce in the form of military rations." I tried to ask further questions but his commanding officer ordered him back to position and told me, "to find your husband or father" as the streets were "too dangerous for unaccompanied women."
Further exploring the familiar yet alien streets that I used to play in as a child, I found a lead, a middle school teacher, who due to wanting to keep his identity a secret will simply be referred to as "The Teacher" until he and his children can escape to Russia. He spoke to me in his apartment, over a bowl of rice and a glass of water about his experiences as a teacher forced to teach propaganda to school children. He told me, "I used to love to be a teacher, helping growing boys and girls learn more about themselves and the world. With time, I was able to teach more and more to these students as the government loosen its control over information. They seemed to become brighter and more intelligent with every new cohort. Yet almost overnight, I lost any liberty to teach these kids anything true. I have to tell them that the Japanese army is the best in the world, that democracy promotes degeneracy, whatever that means, that Japan is the greatest country in the world, that women have no value besides marrying and raising children, and that suicide is a viable way to deal with one's problems. I feel physically sick after every class. I hate being a teacher, here.".
Afterward, he showed me his history textbooks. Without even reading the text, the images were horrifying, a Japanese soldier stomping a Chinese man, a caste system, an "ideal" ethnic map of East Asia, 80% Japanese, diagrams showing how to treat people of "the lower castes", a religious image of Emperor Hirohito and Muto, and a most shocking of all, a map of each suicide post across Japan, the grand total is 5000. The text was even more horrifying talking about the absolute holy divinity of the Emperor, a skewed story of the history of Western colonialism, where all of the European colonializations of the Americas, Africa, and Asia were in an attempt to destroy Japan, multiple odes praising military rule, guides to debunk 'Western lies' and speaking of an "inventable" great war between Chinese rebels and their OFN allies, with the claim that this war wouldn't end in nuclear destruction but rather with Japan ruling all of the Americas and Asia because of "anti-nuclear satellites" in the works.
I asked The Teacher if I could take his textbook back to America. He seemed to be excited by the idea of showing the world, the horrific curriculum he was forced to teach his students. But in the end, he shot down the idea, fearful that his own children would face "unimaginable punishment" if there was any link to him leaking something to the foreign press. With that, I was once again off in the streets looking to scrap up more of the inner works of this increasingly horrific Japan. Yet I was forced to turn back when a soldier boy gave me a warning that I had been "unaccompanied by a man for too long" and therefore would have to be escorted back home.
I followed the nervous 15-year-old boy, in his oversized khaki military slacks, as he lead me back to my parent's apartment, despite me being 12 years his senior. Luckily with the boy escorting me, the soldiers were less willing to catcall me. When I finally reached my home, my father couldn't help but laugh at the ridiculousness of it all as the 15-year-old soldier boy said with a squeaky voice that I shouldn't behave like a child before leaving. After all that, I ate yet another bowl of rice, which this time had salt and chopped daikon to my surprise. When I asked my Mom why, it just so happened that she kept some reward rations for special occasions. To my sadness, the only other person who had daikon in their rice was my sister.
The 2nd day was a big day for me. Before I left, I promised my husband to check on his family, but his family lived in a town that was a 3-hour drive away from my Mother's apartment. I used the little money I had left (out of the money that I didn't save for the flight to Manchuria) to go on a bus to take me there. On my trip there, I was reminded that the one thing the Japanese military hadn't ruined yet was the beauty of the Japanese countryside as large mountains dotted the landscape with amazing bamboo and cherry tree forests, that sometimes opened up for rice fields of vibrant light green. For a moment, I forgot where I was, I remembered being a child, excited to go camping with my friends, amazed by the breathtaking vistas. Yet this came crashing down once we entered the town, once again the aggressive propaganda reared its ugly head and the people trodded along the sides of the bus, depressed and hopeless. The military checkpoints became endless and more enemies of the state were beaten without justice.
I got off and went through this novel town. Since me and my husband have only been to his hometown 2 times before the military occupation, the town was almost completely new, completely novel to me. I had to ask for directions from off-duty soldiers and use a map that I bought from a civilian information office to find the exact home of my husband's family. Unfortunately along the way, due to not looking like a local, the soldiers almost constantly asked for bribes, which I honestly could not give them at this point, so instead they took my belongings.
One soldier took a necklace, another took the underwear I packed, another took my glasses, another took my backpack, another took some rice in a plastic bag, another took the clothes I had packed and finally one took my perfume. The only generosity I received was from one soldier feeling guilty seeing me carry all my stuff with no bag, who gave me a grocery bag when his fellow soldiers weren't looking. When I finally arrived at my husband's family's home, they were less ecstatic to see me, disappointed that my husband wasn't able to come along on the journey with me. Their dinner was more impressive than the one I received back in the city since my husband's younger brother joined the army and was, therefore, able to get chicken, military-grade cheese (that's what it said on the package), and leeks in the rice bowls of him and his family.
My interview with the younger brother was more fruitful than with Hiaso the day before. While he understandably didn't want his name revealed, he spoke to me about how the most common emotion of him and his fellow privates was boredom. From day 1 they promised a great war, that they would be heroes for the Great Empire of Japan but in reality, the military would give them pointless jobs such as patrolling streets that haven't seen a major crime for years, setting up military checkpoints in front of randomly assigned roads and manning anti-aircraft guns even though there will probably never be any enemy planes since they obtained nukes decades ago. Therefore most soldiers spend their time gambling with card games, extorting money from passers-by, cleaning their guns to a perfect shine, faking reports to get more mochi and other snacks, and doing busy work like filing taxes, applications, registrations, or even one-story of a soldier who did his laundry while being asked to man a military checkpoint next to a laundromat.
Meanwhile, the stories of the military high command are insane with rumors of military funds being diverted for Acura sports cars, mansions, smuggled American clothing at a 500% markup, caviar, champagne, jewelry, or even a general supposedly an American-made private jet for the equivalent of 100 million dollars. While some of these sound heavily fantastically and probably are, they do speak to a greater truth that if privates can divert military funds with fake reports to buy mochi, a staff general can probably divert enough to buy a car. When I asked him if Japan could fight off the US, he joked that "Tokyo would fall in a few days" and I further enquired about rebellions in China, his joking mood became sour as he responded with, "We are not ready for anything bigger than the current rebellions. Not at all. I hope that neither me nor any of my brothers-in-arms ever get sent to that death trap."
The next day, I wanted to see why their rice seemed to be the only thing available, therefore I borrowed a bicycle from my husband's older brother and ride until the rice fields began to appear again. I got off and began my journey. I asked farmer after farmer for an interview but almost no one wished to speak to me. But finally, after hours of walking along gravel and dirt roads, I found someone who was interested in talking. Unlike almost everyone with something to lose, he gave his name, Kawamura Yoshito, saying if the government wanted to arrest him, they could.
When I asked him about how rice seemed so common, he told me the situation, "You see the military folks don't know anything about farming, but they really think they know things about farming. Before I grew wheat because it is a good climate and dirt for wheat. But they told us, 'Rice! Rice! Rice!' Because apparently, that was enough for a Japanese man back in the good old days. Thanks to them, I got to grow a crop that just doesn't work here, there's just not enough water, the dirt is dry as clay, and where the majority of the crop just dies. Whoever had these great ideas should run a farm for a couple of years before they tell us how to run one."
When I asked him, his opinions on military rule or the end of the Yokusankai, he said, "I know how to farm, not how to rule. As long as the military lets me farm the right way, I don't care who rules." He then he thanked me with a small bow and returned to tending his fields and I would walk down the country roads back to the town. When I returned back to the house, it was nearly 9 pm, just before curfew. Unlike in my family's neighborhood, a tank was a rare sight, so when a military convoy with 6 tanks went through the town, I could see many of the town's boys on the roofs, breaking the curfew, trying to get a view of the tanks. They were loud enough to wake up at midnight, so the soldiers most likely knew they were up there. Why didn't they try to stop them? The optimistic answer is that they felt bad for the boys, they didn't want to punish the boys for something so innocent. The pessimistic answer is that they knew the boys getting so excited over seeing tanks would make them look up even more to the army, therefore making them more likely to join.
I was unable to interview any of the soldiers on duty that night, so their reasoning remains a mystery.
The next day, I wanted to find a man who "The Teacher" talked about, supposedly a person who was the leader of a Communist revolutionary cell within Japan before the military coup. Supposedly according to "The Teacher", he faced the worse of the Japanese justice system and was rumored to be somewhere in the town. I woke up before any of the family and roamed through the streets looking for my man. I asked questions, going off the limited description that "The Teacher" gave me. Yet hour upon hour passed by with no lead, nothing besides confusion from the locals. When it was noon and it seemed that all my luck had run out, I found him. He wore a tank top with Hakama. He seemed to be begging for money. When I asked for an interview he immediately agreed, giving out his name freely, Komatsu Hiroharu, with no stipulation. We found a private area and he told me his story, "I remember that they considered me a bright student, back in college. I loved to read, especially the illegal stuff, like Das Kapital, The Class Struggles in France, The Communist Manifesto, all the Communist books. They spoke to me that the world needed change and it needed it fast. Me and some like-minded people, we formed an organization, hoping to eventually overthrow the government and install this Marxist utopia.
I see that is a stupid dream now, I see how truly powerless I was to the might and intellect of the military. After the coup, we thought it was our big moment, our big chance for change. Oh, how stupid was I! They gunned so many of us down, so many, I was covered with blood and my ears were deaf with all the screams, all the bullets, all the trucks, and all the machine guns. You might think that I was the fortunate one. I didn't die, I was arrested. No, no, I was the most unlucky. They kept me in this room, this hellish white room, for so long I had a beard by the end. They kept beating me, taking more and more of my teeth, more of my toes, electrocuting. I kept screaming, I don't know why there was nobody there that would have cared. They wouldn't let me sleep, they kept me on drugs all the time. The pain there was unimaginable, even knowing that as a Marxist I would probably be tortured one day. At some point, it was just too much, I just broke, I told them that I hated my girlfriend, my friends, my family, and communism, I stomped on the Communism Manifesto and cried out that I would be fully subservient to the Emperor and to Muto for the remainder of my life.
The worse part of it all was that it was all true at that point, I hated everyone for allowing me to suffer, for not saving me, I hated communism for causing so much of my pain, so much of my suffering, and I loved my torturers when they finally let me go. I knew they recorded all that. I knew that everyone knew that I betrayed them. I couldn't go back to them like that. So I ran, I just ran as far as I could. The only reason why I didn't end things was because [The Teacher] convinced me that there was a life worth living. So far, I have been working odd jobs from town to town, it has allowed me to see a lot of the Japanese wilderness. I find the wilderness still has a lot of beauty, even when it is put in such a horrible nation. I hope that if I get arrested again, that everyone knows, that you put a big light on all this and that they don't get to hide it." By the end, his face was soaked with tears, but he still looked at me with a strong face despite his weak trembling body. I offered him a bowl of rice, but he refused. Then just as he arrived, he left limping away on a big stick towards who-knows-where.
For a while, I just sat there in that alleyway, processing the story which I heard. For the first time on my trip, I got a saki. It didn't help me process it but I felt better after a while.
I soon returned back my family's home, hoping to uncover even more, but at this point, there wasn't any more time, I received a frightening message over the phone, that the LA Times had received a tip that the government knew there was a foreign reporter in the country. I quickly packed my bags, told my family to find a new home, to their collective dread and I left.
Everything moved so fast, I was on a bus, I was in the airport and finally, I was on an airplane heading to Manchuria, my adrenaline bursting as every footstep, and every glance of the soldiers seemed to be a signal that they caught me. When I made it to Manchuria, I received bad news as the man who got me into Manchuria told the LA Times that he didn't have the time to smuggle me into Russia on such short notice. But as a journalist, I learned to think quickly. I found a refugee column from China and joined them in a push into Russia and got a perspective, I never originally sought. The refugees spoke of horrors beyond what I just witnessed in Japan, of terror bombings across the Chinese countryside by the Imperial Japanese Airforce, the use of toxins on Chinese crops, and the ban on food shipments into major cities, a man-made famine unlike I could ever imagine.
I could see the despair of the refugees I was within our ramshackle settlement near the border, as most of them spent the entire night staring at the border wall, thinking of what lay beyond. When dusk arrived, we moved. The border wall was undefended by men, but it was made of concrete with 2 layers of barbed wire on top. The refugees used whatever they could, bamboo ladders, cloth ropes, and even trash heaps. Some didn't work, some did, but chaos caught the scene as everyone attempted to desperately get across, some even walking straight through the bared wire to freedom. I was lucky in terms of I was able to get on a cloth rope early on and climb over the barbed wire with a mat.
After that chaotic and horrifying experience, I was finally free. Therefore the rest of the journey was boring, I arrived at a small regional Russian airport that flew me to Magdan, then to Anchorage, and then finally back to LA where after all that chaos, all that horror, I finally had the chance to feel safe sleeping on the living room couch, while Zeus, my dog, played with a chew toy.

2023.05.23 22:42 Calypthea Accidentally a Dungeon Chp. 23

Previous Next>

In the end, a total of 4 parties got to claim their own Lunar Lily prize to harvest. Turns out, when Nahla had created that tall pillar or light, it worked wonders as a beacon for the remaining trial-goers to rush to. Selene and Hecate decided not to bother them personally, both because they were busy chasing Nahla’s party at the time, and because none of the other adventurer parties had a high enough challenge rating to warrant their direct involvement. Our final winners consisted of 3 veteran groups and one party of newbies who had spent the whole event running from everything that popped up. Maybe not the most glamorous way to win when their only skill is cardio, but hey it worked great at keeping them alive so I’ll take it!
For each party, Emmett joined to help with the harvesting, both to learn from the more experienced gatherers and to make sure no actual harm came to the flowers themselves. From those softly glowing petals dripped clear nectar that shone with a silvery light. This was carefully collected into small glass vials, the tops corked and then sealed with hot wax to make it fully airtight. Then, each vial was wrapped into a dark black cloth before being gingerly placed inside their bags. Looks like I was right about the ingredient being rich in Lunar mana as well; each drop of the nectar shone with more magic than Selene had used in her moon-slash spells.
I decided to ask my spiny alchemist his thoughts on the substance. What do you think Emmett? Will this make my idea for an invisibility potion viable? He pauses in his gathering to contemplate the various variables that go into potion brewing that he’s learned so far. With a hesitant nod, he confirms that it should be possible with what we have available. Perfect! Once you’re done with harvesting the rest of the lilies, I want you to use as much of their nectar as you need to make some test batches ready by morning.
With Deepholm continuing to kill every scout of mine as soon as they get into his caves, I’ve remained entirely ignorant of our enemy’s layout and capabilities while I’m practically an open book. With an invisibility potion, I’d finally have the chance to rectify that imbalance and maybe even turn the tide of this war with some actionable intelligence. I’m not the only one to be quite happy with the results of tonight’s harvesting either. Over at the safe zone, the adventurers who have finished recovering are flocking around the winners who are sharing tales of their exploits. In particular, that one team of newbies is the subject of a great many envious stares as well as several vows to beat them out for the prized lilies next time.
Seeing their rowdy antics puts a peaceful smile on my face, and I simply enjoy the atmosphere for a few moments before collecting myself to get back to work. Can’t let myself get distracted now, I’ve still got a war to win and research to do. First things first, it's time to put all that mana I just gained to use. I use some to upgrade the owl spawner a couple of times and then dump the rest of it straight into the queue. It will take a little over 12 hours, but the repopulation of my owls is now officially underway! Now to go over the results with Alexa and Giorno back in the war room. I find them discussing the performance of various parties over a field of strewn-out files, comparing the final results to the projected capabilities from the start of the night.
To make life a little easier for us, I suggested my newly minted challenge rating idea so that we could accurately prepare better challenges for each delver. Taking our preliminary predictions and referencing them to the actual results ended up adjusting the challenge rating number of several groups, but not by too large a margin. The only group who we could not assign a number to however, was Nahla’s party. They’d made quick work of my strongest level of denizens but had been forced to flee from my fish scions. There being such a large gap between the two is definitely a problem for future me. Since I intend my scions to be the big bosses of my dungeon, I suppose that would make a need for a variety of mini-bosses then? I’ll have to see what we can come up with in time.
While I’m ruminating on that subject, I get an urgent notification from Kelvin out on patrol. There’s a wounded woman running up the mountain, being chased by a pack of honey badgers. As she runs, it looks like the dark red of her skin is fading away at the same rate her blood stains the white snow on the mountain. Shit, it’s the inspector! Kelvin, take your scouting team and get her to the safe zone pronto! Only fight those badgers as needed, your first and only priority is the rescue effort.
Anxiously, I await their return. I know Kelvin is fully capable of taking care of himself and our unexpected guest, but not knowing what happened to cause the inspector of all people to be that badly wounded scares me. Thankfully, Kelvin can feel my concern and brings the inspector straight to the safe zone’s healing pools, bounding gracefully through the sky with the weakened woman on his back. The problem arises, however, in keeping her in the spa so that she can heal.
Adamant in getting out to speak to the adventurers gathered around in curiosity, she fights against my scions trying to hold her back to accept treatment with a surprising amount of strength for someone so injured. After pushing Kelvin all the way to the door of the building despite his best efforts to stop her, my scions finally relent. Selene follows along behind the inspector, swimming through the air as she carefully disinfects and closes each gash on her back. Lydia, for her part, gives a heartfelt thanks to both her and Kelvin and then turns to address my delvers as a group.
“Listen, all of you, and heed my words. The war between Deepholm and Caldera has reached a level beyond what can simply be described as ‘unsafe’. Whether it is from increased activity from Fenton, Caldera’s unexpected resistance, or perhaps a combination of the two, Deepholm has crossed the line in an attempt to secure enough mana for a fast victory. Before coming here, I first tried to stop a mining caravan from venturing into his depths, but I was too late. I arrived only in time to witness Deepholm slaughtering them all barely a hundred feet into his caves.”
Lydia pauses here, her breath shaky at reliving the memory while her knuckles turned pink from clenching her hands so hard into fists. Kelvin, upset by the strained atmosphere, rubs his giant head gently into the inspector’s back with a quiet (for his size) pur in an attempt to relieve her tension. Surprised at the sudden contact, she regards my cat scion with a mix of emotions flashing across her face. With a wry smile, she hesitantly decides to return the gesture by giving him a fond pat on his head. Now a little calmer and more composed, she continues her speech while one hand continues to idly scratch at Kelvin’s ears, much to his delight.
“I joined that battle, if you can call it that, but Deepholm had already mobilized his scions to make sure nothing went wrong in his massacre. While I was preoccupied fending off the three scions, Deepholm’s denizens finished off the rest of the caravan, and I was forced to flee. He must consider me as good as dead since I fled towards Caldera, otherwise, I imagine he would have stopped at nothing to make sure there were no witnesses to his atrocity. As of this moment, the guild is officially rebranding Deepholm as a murderous dungeon. It is too dangerous for any of you to remain here anymore. Deepholm is already mobilizing all of his forces as we speak. Your only chance is to leave, now.”
All at once, the fearful night the adventurers spent after the bat scion’s attack seems to come to the forefront of everyone’s thoughts. Fear and unease replacing the festive mood that had so recently prevailed. Unfortunately, everyone had just been put through the wringer because of my harvest event, and while the major injuries had all been taken care of, fatigue is not so easy to shake off. After much discussion between the inspectors and the delver camp, it was decided that they would leave at first light instead, and leave by going down the west side of my mountain and taking an extra day of travel just to circle back around to their hometown the long way.
Still lacking a Voice to communicate with, I instead tell Kelvin directly to collect whatever potions Emmett has ready for him in the morning and then to escort them down the mountain to personally ensure their safety. It looks like I won’t be able to generate much more mana before the next big fight, so I spend the rest of the night with Giorno and Alexa, poring over all of our notes and battle strategies. Hopefully, it will be enough.
Lydia PoV
It’s too hot.
Being held like this by Papa is usually a comfortable kind of warm, but now everything is wrong. There are people screaming all around us, and the bits of the village I glimpse over Papa’s shoulder is all orange with fire. He’s been walking for what seems like hours now, and one of his legs is all bent and weird looking. We…, can’t find Momma anywhere. I sniffle into his shirt, trying not to cry because Papa said I had to be brave right now.
I hate this. It’s too hot.
From the other side of the village, I hear that awful roar again. The fields where we were growing wheat for the winter disappeared in the flame, along with all the people who were trying to run away through them. Between the heat on my skin, and the screams filling the air, the newest contender for worst experience was the smell of burnt meat. I’m trembling even harder now, not even Papa’s arms make me feel safe like they always used to. But I won’t cry, I gotta be a brave little girl like Papa said.
With a splashing sound, Papa stumbles and hisses through his clenched teeth before setting me down into our family’s skiff that we would sometimes take out to the sea and fish on. Scared, I look up at his face as he tries to smile through the pain as the ocean washes over his legs. He doesn’t stop moving, untying our little bot from the dock and slowly pushing it out into the water.
“It’s alright, it’s all going to be ok. I promise.”
I realize that for the first time, Papa is lying to me. I try to grasp at his arms, so big and strong as they push the boat further from shore. I shake my head desperately, fearing what he’ll say next, fighting valiantly against the tears welling up in my eyes.
“You’ve been such a good little girl. You’ve made Papa proud. But you’ll have to be brave for a little while longer ok? Across the sea is your great-uncle Stanley. Find him, and he’ll make sure you grow up safe. You just need to be strong for Papa for a little while longer.”
No no no no, I hate this. It’s too hot. I don’t want you to go. Please don’t leave me all alone.
“Follow the stars, they will guide you and keep you safe! Always remember that! When you’re in trouble, follow the stars and you’ll be sure to find your way home!”
I broke my promise to Papa, I couldn’t hold back the tears anymore as he let go of the boat with one final shove.
“I love you, Lydia, my little sun-drop.”
With the beat of enormous leathery wings, heralding the end, a stream of fire engulfed the docks in death, sinking all the boats, and Papa with them, into the unforgiving sea.
I awake with a start, covered in sweat and my heart beating wildly. For a moment, I’m utterly confused by the heavy white blanket that‘s covering my entire lefthand side. Then, my memory rushes back in along with my consciousness. That’s right, I spent the night at Caldera’s safe zone along with the other delvers. Squirming out from the blanket, I discover that it’s actually the furry hide of Caldera’s cat scion who had fallen asleep next to me. At some point he must have rolled over onto me somewhat in his sleep, no wonder I was feeling so hot!
Staring at the furry death trap, my mind wanders once more to the nightmare I had just awoken from. I haven’t been tormented by that dream in years. All this recent turmoil must have triggered the memories I’d done my level best to bury in the past. Great, that’s just what I needed. More problems to pile onto my plate right now. I can feel my ki bristle from the tension permeating my muscles, the stress from the dream still sounding the alarm throughout my system.
Quickly, I grab a towel from the safe zone’s building as well as some of my field rations, then I wander over towards Caldera’s garden. The morning dew has left many of the plants here dappled with light as the water reflects the first rays of the sun. Far down the shore, I find a good spot and start my much-needed morning ritual, running through all the steps I learned from Master Flutrane. The movements had long since become as easy as breathing for me, their slow, fluid motions helping to return the flow of my ki and my mental state to their norm.
It’s only then that I realize I have a surprise student beside me, trying to mimic every swing of my arms and every step herself. It’s the Jackalope, with a look of total concentration on her face and her ears twitching at odd angles to try and help maintain her balance through the unfamiliar movements. Rather amused, I decided to humor the rabbit scion and start again from the beginning, taking extra time between steps so that she could get the poses right before moving on to the next. By the time we had finished, the nightmare and the anxiety it stirred within my heart had all but been forgotten.
Standing there, chest puffed out in pride at having completed the exercise, the Jackalope regards me for a moment with a determined glimmer in her brown eyes. A quick scamper over to the bushes and back, and the rabbit scion held out a magnificent bow at me. Her hand was not clenched around it to show it off but rather in more of a challenging brandish than anything else. If I’m not mistaken, I do believe the little bunny is challenging me to a rematch. For just one moment, I hesitate. I came here just to evacuate the delvers after all, not to get into a sparring match with Caldera’s strongest scion.
But looking into those velvety brown eyes, with the sun starting to crest over the peaks of Mt. Asteria’s rim, I can’t help but chuckle at the world of difference that I feel between the likes of Caldera and Deepholm. The delvers will be safe, we’ve already drawn up the best plan for their survival, and Deepholm will have to wait for nighttime if he wants to attack with his bats for support anyways. For whatever reason, something deep inside me is telling me to stay and witness the final outcome for myself. I can’t put my finger exactly on the logic of the feeling, but it feels right somehow. And besides, no matter who comes out victorious in this war, it will be a good idea to stick around to report on it immediately to the guild. My decision firmly locked in place, I tap my closed fist against the paw holding the magnificently crafted bow outwards and give the rabbit scion a firm nod and a wide grin.
“Alright rabbit, I’ll stick around for a rematch with you. But, if I win, you’ll have to teach me that weird thing you did with your ki last time I was here.”
Surprised by my condition, the scion taps her foot in thought before her eyes become unfocused for a moment, likely conversing with Caldera directly. Moments later, I feel their presence in the area, like eyes on the back of my neck. Now looking much more excited than before, the Jackalope gives an emphatic nod and then bounds away. When she realizes I haven’t followed after her, she turns around and gives a few impatient thumps of her foot, telling me to hurry up. I laugh out loud this time, there’s just something in the air with Caldera that makes it easy to forget the troubles of the outside world, even when they are looming directly overhead.
Caldera PoV
The delvers were all almost done with packing up camp when I got the message from Jackie asking for permission to teach the inspector about aether as part of a bet. The request takes me completely by surprise, and I have to take a moment to consider the ramifications of spreading aether around as well as why it's part of a bet to begin with. With a bit more context, it seems like my rabbit scion is dead-set on contesting the inspector directly, and on her own this time. Jackie has a variety of complex feelings about the inspector swirling around inside her that is evident through the bond.
Evidently, she consciously considers the inspector to be a rival of sorts, but truthfully, deep down, I sense a feeling of a master-student relationship instead. That makes sense, actually, since Jackie developed all of her strength from watching the inspector so closely during their first fight. Now, she wants to test herself against her mentor figure to see how far she has come. Apparently, the inspector is fine with this, but only if Jackie in turn teaches her about aether should she emerge victorious.
This is the inspector we’re talking about, so I shrug and say that it should be fine. I’ve already decided to trust her and the guild, so I see no harm in teaching her. But that would mean that she couldn’t evacuate with the others like their plan had originally called for. Looking at the inspector while I think, I decide to shrug and just accept her decision. Lydia is the strongest person I know, she’s more than capable of looking out for herself. So if she’s decided to stick around a little longer then who am I to try and stop her?
I give Jackie the go-ahead and then turn to Kelvin to give him an update, telling him to hurry along the delvers and usher them to safety. As an afterthought, I also order a bunch of my smallest frogs to go hide out in the adventurer’s backpacks. Connected to Alexa’s network, I’m sure they’ll be able to provide lots of useful information later on that Giorno will appreciate getting his webbed fingers on. Provided that they can go undiscovered for long enough, that is.
Before long, the only outsider left inside my borders is the inspector who is looking remarkably hearty whilst squaring up against Jackie in her boss room. Knees bent slightly, and her kanabo draped casually over her shoulder like a baseball bat, the inspector looks the definition of relaxed and unconcerned. Jackie however, isn’t tricked by her deceptive stance, and stays on full alert, carefully watching her opponent’s ki for the slightest indication of an attack. Draping herself in her life affinity aether, Jackie never takes her eyes off her opponent for a moment as the armor forms around her.
Rather than jump forward to try and stop my scion from acting in that small window, the inspector instead pays close attention to Jackie’s ki, presumably trying to parse the secret behind my rabbit’s transformation. They stand there, staring at each other like that for several long, drawn-out seconds. Then, at some unspoken signal, they both spring into action. While Lydia runs forward to close the distance between them, Jackie takes a mighty jump backwards and to the side, letting loose several arrows at once with her multishot skill, each one imbued heavily with her aether. The inspector doesn’t miss a beat, simply dodging two of them and deflecting the third with her kanabo.
But Jackie is an archer like none other, and her arrows reflect that. Each of her three shots in her opening volley is her special porcupine-type arrow. Jackie uses her aether to stop the momentum of the two dodged projectiles at the same time as the one that is getting deflected by the inspector’s weapon, causing all three to detonate at the same time. Lydia, sensing the danger as soon as she sees a bunch of spines lift up from the abnormally thick shaft of the arrow, quickly floods all of the ki in her body directly into her eyes.
Flashing around and looking in every direction around her, those glowing orbs take notice of every needle as they are accelerated towards her body. From there, her sky-blue ki surges back into her muscles, mostly focused on her arms. Dropping the kanabo, all Jackie and I can see is a flurry of red-colored blurs as the inspector springs into action. When it is done, she is standing there, completely unharmed, with every single wooden needle plucked out of the air and gathered into her fists.
“Silly rabbit, such tricks are for kids. You’re going to have to try a lot harder than that to get the drop on me.”
The inspector emphasizes her taunt by crushing the wooden needles in her hands and tossing the broken pieces aside. Meanwhile, Jackie has frozen to the spot, jaw practically on the floor, utterly flabbergasted by the display. Lydia is not so merciful as to give her a chance to recover her senses and instead presses the attack. Hooking her weapon with her foot and tossing it up into her hands like a hacky sack, the inspector leaves small craters behind instead of footsteps as she accelerates towards my poor girl.
Caught flat-footed, Jackie struggles to retreat around the edge of her arena while firing off volley after volley at the inspector. Having learnt quickly that her opponent is fast enough to dodge or deflect anything sent her way, Jackie instead tries to force the inspector to dodge in a certain direction with each arrow while scattering a few at the ground and roots forming the walls of her boss room. Inevitably, the inspector catches up to Jackie and forces her to sling her bow onto her back and swap to melee combat.
Warping her aether armor into a buckler shape over each paw, my bunny puts up an impressive fight. What blows she cannot dodge entirely, she instead deflects with her wooden bucklers and takes every opportunity she has to parry the strike with one of her own. Recognizing the power hidden away in the wood of Jackie’s blows, the inspector also takes great care not to let herself be hit by any of them. Back and forth they continue this exchange, all the while Jackie is continuously forced to retreat due to her shorter reach.
When her back hits the wall, she lets the surprise show on her face, and the inspector swings hard for a finishing blow. But this had been all a part of Jackie’s plan. She’d managed to retreat back and lead her opponent into the area littered with her arrows sticking out of the ground, and once her back was to the literal wall she sprung her trap. From each of the arrows sprouted thick entangling vines while Jackie ducked under the inspector’s strike and spun around to deliver a full-powered aether kick to her side. Fully expecting Lydia to block her kick since it was the most dangerous attack, Jackie was instead aiming to wrap her opponent up in vines while she was busy using her ki to fend off the most dangerous attack.
Instead, the wide berth between the combatant’s combat experience immediately made itself known as the inspector instead exhaled and let her body go limp into the kick instead of blocking it. Placing her ki in her legs to jump away just as the blow made contact with her sides, Lydia absorbed most of the force harmlessly while simultaneously using the strike’s momentum to easily bound clear of the tangling trap. Still with all of her ki gathered in her legs, she flipped over gracefully and slammed her heel into the earth in a devastating kick. This cracked the ground in every direction and caused several boulders to jump into the air like startled rabbits.
Before they even had a chance to fall back to earth, the inspector batted every one of them over to Jackie.
Having to dodge the inspector’s makeshift projectiles, my rabbit was caught off guard when Lydia followed close behind the rocks and used her kanabo to redirect a few of the rocks mid-flight. Choosing to smash through the rocks directly with her aether-infused fists, Jackie avoided dodging in the direction that the inspector had wanted, similar to the trap she had just recently tried herself against her opponent. This, however, proved to be a mistake, because the inspector was once again one step ahead in anticipating what my rabbit would do.
Having hidden herself behind the trajectory of the largest rock, when Jackie smashed it apart she was met with the sight of the inspector’s metal kanabo swinging directly for her and barely any time to brace herself against it.
With a crack, metal met wood while ki struggled against aether. Despite the advantage of a surprise attack, Jackie’s aether was strong enough to force the power struggle into a stalemate. Each contestant's feet dug deep troughs into the earth, their muscles straining against one another. Rather than simply push with her ki, however, the inspector swapped out the constant pressure for a technique that surged and pulled back like waves breaking against a rocky shore. This pulsing motion of her ki allowed Lydia to slam into Jackie’s defenses with greater strength than before, and before long a loud cracking sound was heard as it shattered apart the aether armor like a nutcracker crushing a shell.
Sent tumbling back by the blow and disoriented by the forced dispersal of her aether, I can only watch in horror as the inspector dashes forward and pours all her remaining ki into a single point on the edge of her weapon, whipping it down in an overhead strike that can only spell doom for its target. Then, the fight is over, and Jackie who had reflexively covered her head with her paws cautiously opens her eyes to find the fearsome club hovering just inches above her skull. With a smug smile, the inspector pulls her weapon away, and then playfully bops my rabbit on the nose with it.
Huffing in indignation, Jackie’s ears stand up straight and she kicks at the ground, pouting fiercely at her loss. This just earns her a beautiful peal of laughter from Lydia, and from me on the sidelines. Accusingly, she turns her tearful gaze towards my core, furious at me for my amusement. I’m sorry, I’m sorry! You’re just so cute when you’re pouting! Think of it this way, now you’ve got a second disciple to teach Aether to! And it's a free opportunity to learn a lot more about utilizing your ki from your student in the process.
Not mollified in the least, Jackie glowers at me, but does respectfully bow to the inspector to concede her defeat. She spends the rest of the day taking Lydia around my newly expanded areas and giving her the grand tour of all my new features. Each addition seems to add to her consternation, especially when she meets a few of my terrorspines and the displacer beast. Aaaah, I knew it, those eyes are full of judgment! She’s totally thinking something rude while she’s sighing in exasperation! Almost under her breath, she remarks to herself, “I know I told you to surprise when next I stopped by, but I didn’t expect you to go so overboard with it.”
The tour ends right as dusk begins to fall, with Jackie leading Lydia up to my new core location so she knows where to find me in the future. It’s at that moment, right when the last rays of sunlight have begun to disappear over the horizon, that it happens. A gross feeling suddenly surges through me, like when something slimy slides past your legs while standing in a lake. I can feel some kind of border, similar to mine but distinctly not sliding up against my edges and settling right next to them, over by the far shore. From deep within the cave leading into the depths of the mountain, I hear that now familiar flurry of claws scratching against stone. The time has come.
Deepholm is here, ready to settle this war once and for all.

2023.05.23 14:41 Olivia_Richards Monster Partner: Philippines episodes (spoilers)

Short Netflix-styled descriptions of the planned episodes of my own imaginary animated series heavily inspired by both anime and video games. The plot follows young monster hunter and adventurer Juan and his quirky tomboyish yandere demon girl Valerie as they travel across an alternate universe Philippines plagued by deadly folklore creatures and the harsh climate, to investigate the origins behind the supernatural and assist the people in fending off unimaginable threats.
Ratings (ESRB or MTRCB): - 16 or SPG (Main Series) - 16 or SPG (Alien vs Predator crossover) - PG-13 (Minecraft crossover)
Genre: - Romance - Action-Adventure - Science Fantasy - Drama - Horror
Mindanao Chapter: The Land of Promise (2009-2015)
  1. Battle Ready: In the municipality of Claveria, in the province of Misamis Oriental, a young monster hunter named Juan R. El Fidèles recounts to his classmates about his tragic childhood of losing his parents to a gang of four aswang, vampire-like demonic shapeshifters that stalk rural areas, after he had spent his entire childhood and adolescence training with his late Grandfather and elder monster hunters in preparation to avenge them. As he confronts the three remaining members who plans to take him out for slaying their comrade, Juan gets a surprise help from Valerie S. Arévalo, his childhood friend, revealing herself to be a variant of aswang with powerful dark magic. (30 minutes long)
  2. The Sinkhole: During Valentine's Day, weeks after Juan had successfully avenged his parents, Valerie reveals herself to have a crush on Juan since childhood and confesses her feelings for him. But with her being a witch variant of aswang potentially deadlier than the monsters he had previously slain throughout his late adolescence, along martial arts skills being equal to his own, and her uncanny behaviour towards him, Juan secretly distrusts her deep down his mind, and plans to kill Valerie in the rainforest with his deceased grandfather's World War II era weaponry. During the fight, a grenade explosion collapses a fragile rock structure, and the two fall into a large unexplored cave system. (25 minutes)
  3. Cliffs and Routes: Weeks after Juan had recovered from his injuries after his brutal fight with Valerie, she keeps him under her watch, taking him along with her a road trip with her modified 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser V8 together across various locations Claveria to give themselves some fresh air and rekindle their friendship. On the way, they encounter a pair of infamous thieves equipped with Yamaha R1 motorcycles, who steals Valerie's pink abaca handbag bag, her most prized possession since childhood as it is a reminder of her ancestral home of Cebu. Angered by the theft of her belongings, she and Juan chases them across the dangerous roads of the municipality. (25 minutes)
  4. The Montage: a month after the previous episode, Valerie takes in a depressed Juan to her mansion, whose forest cottage had been nearly buried by a landslide during a storm, and a third of his grandfather's old weapons and equipment damaged by the rubble. While awaiting for repairs, Valerie helps him mentally recover through light excercises and sparring matches in her gym to test the limitations of their newfound teamwork and strengths in preparation for their new mission; to travel across the country to investigate the mysteries regarding the origins of the monsters. During their sessions, they begin to have flashbacks of their childhood memories together and start to fall in love. (25 minutes)
  5. Battle of Davao City: Months have passed, and it's now Juan's 19th birthday, and so he, Valerie and their closest friends, Juan's ex-girlfriend Michaela and her brother Pedro, meet up for a party with Juan's relatives in Davao city. During their stay, things took a bad turn when the relatively peaceful city is suddenly caught in the crossfire between the Philippine Army and the NPA Communist Insurgency, who are unusually well-equipped with more advanced modern weaponry beyond their standard capabilities. Valerie and Michaela are separated from their group and must learn to set aside ther differences for their survival and to find them. When Juan's grandmother, Gloria Pacaña, is killed by the insurgents in the ensuing chaos, he is unable to handle his grief and joins in on the battle. (30 minutes)
  6. Poultry Raiders: a few hours after escaping Davao city, Juan, Valerie, and their surviving friends and family travel across Bukidnon on their way back to Claveria with their vehicles, when Valerie's Toyota Land Cruiser and Juan's Nissan Altima both run out of fuel and they stop on a desolate farmland near the barangay of Puntian, Kitaotao, where they encounter the local Tabamo family, whose poultry farm have been ravaged for years by a large pack of Sigbin, a species of highly intelligent marsupial-like beasts armed with a venomous bite and the ability to turn invisible. Juan and Valerie decides to help defend and fortify their barn from the lethal pests outside, while the others stay indoors with the Tabamos to tend for their wounds sustained earlier in Davao. During their watch, Valerie attempts to reconcile with Juan over her insensitive comment regarding Juan's responsibilities as a man, and the death of his grandmother in the previous episode. (25 minutes)
  7. Sabotage: Weeks after the events of the previous two episodes, Juan and Valerie visits Cagayan de Oro city to send the latter's Toyota Land Cruiser to a local automotive repair shop to have the damages from the previous two episodes fixed. During their stay, they visit Agora to personally see an experimental Hyundai County sent by both the Philippine and South Korean Government to undergo a test that would determine if it can replace the aging traditional jeepney buses by the next ten years, hoping that the new vehicles would reduce carbon emissions in large cities like Cebu and Manila in the near future. However, a Manlalayug, an elusive witch with the ability to manipulate her strong and flexible hair at long distances, sabotages the bus during a test drive, and its up to Juan and Valerie, with the help of retired jeepney driver Perry Dael and his friends to investigate the appearance of the entity. (25 minutes)
  8.

Analog Horror: In an early summer month nearly a year after the events of the previous episode, Juan and Valerie drive to the city of Pagadian, in the province of Zamboanga del Sur, to have their first official date at a local restaurant.

During their trip, they come into battles against a Mameleu, a large and highly intelligent sea serpent that relentlessly try to steal their catches, and a brutal band of pirates that terrorize a local Bajau village.

There, Valerie receives her old Toyota Land Cruiser, repaired from the damages recieved from last year and refitted with new parts and systems as a late graduation present from her parents, while Juan learns of Valerie's origins as an aswang and begins to understand how crucial he is to her life and journey.
