2021.11.30 09:23 Cleretic [Spoilers: Inevitable, but none in the OP] A thought about mindsets encouraging a lot of popular Hydaelyn theories
So this isn't related to actual lore predictions or theories or anything, but more a response to a fairly popular one. It's a thought I've had kicking around for a couple years, so I figured I'd try to articulate it directly, especially just on the doorstep of Endwalker, which is absolutely the 'if this is ever gonna happen it'll be here' point. Specifically, I'm talking about the myriad theories that eventually amount to 'we'll fight Hydaelyn'. There's a whole pile of different permutations for how it'll happen, ranging from 'we'll be forced to by extreme circumstance', to 'mercy kill for the good of the planet', to 'she's just as bad when it comes down to it', to 'The Ascians Were Right'. Really the only thing they have in common is their endpoint, and I wanted to explore where I think that comes from.
Ultimately, FFXIV, like--I'd estimate--most other video games worth noting, is a game where our primary means of interaction with the world and story is through violence. I'm not saying this in a negative way, and in fact I'd very much say that FFXIV is notable for having a good amount of stories that don't amount to that (I do think the fact the crafters and gatherers have questlines just as legit as the combat jobs is a huge boon of FFXIV's writing), but at the end of the day, FFXIV is a game that, like countless others, is all about either actively doing a violence, or preparing to.
In a lot of games, all story and setup ultimately amounts to that: putting you on the path to enemies and giving you pretense to be okay with what it's about to ask of you. And for a lot of stories, that's kind of all you need, and that wagon will take you far until the wheels start falling off through overuse. But I think fantasy games hit an interesting problem with this. One that's, weirdly, embodied by my single least favorite line in all of FFXIV, but I think is popular solely because of what it embodies.
"Just know I'll kill your god if I have to. Maybe even if I don't."
I think that there's sort of an inevitability in a large-spanning fantasy story, the types with big gods and fantastical creatures. And I doubt I'm the first person to notice this. But I think that, as a story in that sort of fantasy setting goes on, the more people eventually consider 'Kill God' the natural end point. An almighty being exists somewhere, and thus, we must throw hands. Sure, a lot of people will want to, for many reasons, but I don't know if it's a widely-held desire so much as a widely-held acceptance. If a story with a god in it can only be interacted with through violence, that god must die, as naturally as the sun sets.
There's a side-question there of asking the 'chicken or the egg' question about when and how this started; was there a playerbase at some point that wanted to kill a god and couldn't, or did someone once decide to write 'this time, you kill god', thereby opening eyes to what was possible? I'd love to just point at Shin Megami Tensei II's final boss being YHVH and say 'this is the point where we started killing God at the end of stories', but that's probably wrong. Regardless, it's not really as important as where we are now.
I feel like this is why all those Hydaelyn theories exist. Not because there's textual evidence to support that happening, but because metatextually, we all know: we will kill Hydaelyn, because Hydaelyn is a god in a fantasy video game, and that's just what happens. Rather than follow a sequence of in-story facts and evidence to its natural conclusion, these theories start at what we see as the inevitable endpoint, and then justify the journey.
We'll find out in a few days if that's right. And honestly, I'm not sure where I personally stand on it. But I feel like people's satisfaction with what does or doesn't happen might not actually land where their theories say they do.

🌟Some of our utilities:
🔹6. Release Our Own Nft Marketplace
Despite us being a Binance Smart Chain project that doesn't mean to say we do not have a future and want to broaden out. In the future we are very interested in making our own NFT Marketplace since we believe the current ones out there are not upto par and have ridiculous fees for their not so great service, we want to make a marketplace with the perfect balance.
🔹7. Release Debit Cards, Using Tokens To Make Purchases.
This is most likely a long to very long term goal, however our plans are eventually to be able to release prepaid MasterCard debit cards which are prepaid via KING DOLPHIN BSC. Essentially you would deposit $KDB into your account, upon making a purchase with the card it will make the transaction using your KING DOLPHIN BSC balance. This is obviously a long term goal for the team and we do not know the most about the partnerships which are/can be made with MasterCard however when we feel the time is right we will begin to work on this project.

curious what would happen if you took your 3 hits, broke though, but someone held the pipe up to your lips for you, and you just kept hitting it. I’m not saying anyone should or even could try this... I’m just wondering. Would you even be able to keep hitting it, Breaking Though is like blacking out right? Would it kill you? Would you being a supior, supreme all knowing lizard beaning? Like Mark Zuckerberg?

2021.11.30 09:22 konwiddak You don't need to keep your house above 19C (66F), you just need to toughen up.
Unless you have specific medical conditions, or are old - keeping your home above 19C is a wasteful extravagance. A healthy individual should have no problem keeping warm and cosy at 19C with suitable clothing.
If you feel cold, put on a jumper. You'll get used to it in no time.

Read that it happens when unsealing and summoning in crowded places. What if I'm doing my daily mission(it will be crowded naturally) then I decided to summon or unseal something not knowing that exploit. Will I be banned? Shouldn't they fix that immediately instead of banning other users?
