Last year I found out there's native Linux version of the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Editions. They are working well but I don't think I'll ever finish a playthrough again. Back then I finished original BG, and BG2, but not the Throne of Bhaal expansion. Damn long games.
Enhanced Edition makes it possible to play this classic DnD based crpg on modern steel, fixes bugs, changes some rules, adds new NPCs with quests, new items, two new expansions (The Black Pits - arena fight generator?, and Siege of Dragonspear - which is a module for the original story, taking part between BG1 and BG2). It seems okay all in all.

You get blood from killing enemies and you can then use that blood to upgrade abilities.

You can change characters through a tv room or by doing what i did.
>But essentially changing characters is like changing guns in regular FPSs?
Yeah pretty much. They have different weapons and different abilities. You have to switch between them to complete some puzzles.

You can find a save room or a tv room on the map. They are essentially the same except a save room you can save in. Other than that they are the same. You use the tv to switch personalities and create blood vials. And there library in the same room if you are having any trouble aswell. So you can read about new enemies for example. And how to defeat those new enemies or just about anything in the game.
You use the blood you get from killing heaven smiles to create blood vials. Then you use those vials to upgrade the abilities for a personality.
You can upgrade power,speed,waver or criticals.
Upgrading power gives higher attack power, same with speed.
Upgrading waver makes target locking better.
Upgrading criticals im not sure what it does but it says instant kill.
The highest level of upgrade is level 5.
All personalities have those upgradable abilites. Except for 1 personality which is a personality you use when you die. You get switched to him to go pick up your dead body and then resurrect it.
Also every personality has a unique weapon and ability. You sometimes use those abilities to complete puzzles. As for the fast gameplay in the first video, it was because i was using a personality that runs fast. His special ability is also running super fast but he runs pretty fast even without it.

so im prolly preaching to the choir here, but kohl has been completely and totally overrun by pedos. i have reason to suspect that it is being done purposefully, either as a way to disrupt /int/, entrap unproxied/naive bernds who cant into clearing their cache, and plant CP in their temporary files, and/or to use /int/ as a wall of noise, and bernds themselves, as a way to distract from their own exchanging of such content. im leaning towards the last one tbh hence why the offer of simply making a new board dedicated to such content. i think these bernds with nothing to hide, and no threat model nor intention of viewing such degeneracy, are at risk. i believe this is being cultivated purposefully so as to surround their gaggle of degenerates with low-hanging fruit who may be stupid enough to accidentally click on something, or unaware that when viewing a page with a bunch of thumbnails of child models, all those thumbnails get downloaded by your browser.

i gave a reasonable list of demands that i feel are not too extreme, and limit no ones free speech other than the (((freedom))) to endanger naive bernds and plant CP on their computers unknowingly and even gave a provision where proxies/tor are not to be banned, but it was not enough. the mods are 100% complicit in it, and allow it, and worse, encourage it. they feel that pedoposting improves the quality of the board via keeping keins and ledditors out. they feel that removing suggestively posed, scantily clad children pics means turning the joint into a reddit-tier hugbox but again, i suspect their motives are more that of self preservation, as even the most unaware of bernds has heard that kohl is run by pedos. this, even though such (((innocent))) content like candydoll webms is certainly enough for some bernd in a more conservative cunt to be fucked over hard and have his life ruined if found in his cache

ive been quietly harboring suspicions of this sort of activity for a while, but have been biting my tongue so as to not cause another mass exodus over nothing. but this is not nothing. these fucks are doing this intentionally and at this point, im certain of it. in the past few days, i heard enough other bernds exclaim similar theories about how kohl is nothing more than a fed honeypot even that dergeneral was forced to 86 the old kc serb in order to cause an exodus to a more thoroughly controlled new site, or that the owners have been co-opted/blackmailed into setting one up, and also that the use of a, now fast-moving, /int/ is being used to cover for their smut dealings.

even when asking the mods to be transparent and make a clear definitive statement on their personal moderative tendencies on such content, and to post this warning on /int/ and warn these naive bernds of the risk they face by posting there, ive been met with deflectionary responses, and weak-ass limp-dicked argumentative tactics to which i am utterly immune, as well as a distinct lack of action. they want this, and it couldnt be more clear. but worse, they want the deception. as such, i suspect foul play of some sort
idk, im really worried about the safety of the dozens of bernds who post there on a daily basis without proxy, and without clearing their caches constantly. i love all you guys a whole lot and id hate to see anyones lives get fuckt because some random pedonigger had to bump his shitty thread full of candydoll webms and pics of naked preteens to the first page, and some poor sap who didnt know any better refreshed the first page while it happened. ive seen this tactic used on other imageboards countless times and against countless communities, and with all the commotion, i felt the need to speak up about it.

Some guy argues that medieval Christian witch hunts with all these crazy tests was just euphemism for coin testing:

That's short translation, original article with more info in Russian: http://igor-grek.ucoz.ru/publ/taini/real_witches/2-1-0-492

Some quotes:

>The truth in all its simplicity was revealed to Igor Grek when he saw that the instructions of the Inquisition to identify the "witch" would completely coincide with the methods of establishing the sample of precious metals according to the "Assayer's Guide". And if you replace the word "witch" with "counterfeit coin" in the records of the Inquisition, then everything falls into place. Let's compare and we, too, and then we will understand what was burned at the stake all over Europe.

>The iron test is characteristic only of the early Middle Ages. The "witch" had to not get burned by holding a red-hot bar of iron in the palm of his hand for several minutes. It was believed that God would protect the innocent in such a situation, and even legendary examples of acquittals were given!

>In fact, this means that a coin made of pure silver will not melt, "it will last a few minutes without damage", since iron heated to a light red color has a temperature of 830-900°С, and pure silver melts at a temperature of 960°С. All alloys with a silver content below 91 percent begin to melt at the same temperature - 779°C.

That's breddy cool idea.
What I know, that the Inquisition was an investigative institution, the judgement and punishment was done by lay authorities. In all the cases? I dunno.
On the Hungary right at the beginning of the 12th century one of our kings declared that "Witches do not exist!" and his action mostly ceased all the witch hunts here for many centuries (with Protestantism spreading they rose again, those guys are really barbarians). During the Árpáds the kings themselves were frequently the forgers, adding more and more else into the coins, to save on precious metals, so they can mint more coins, leading to inflation.
What about Orthodox countries? The map in the article shows even they had witch trials.
And the sound of it, the theory might be religiously motivated.

They've happened. There were laws against wizardry and such. I guess statistics is incorrect, because local happenings like "some peasant was killed by others in remote village" was not properly recorded in archives. Old Believers sometimes also were executed if they wouldn't convert.

Here is some data (in Russian though): https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Казнь_через_сожжение_в_истории_России

It doesn't really make any sense and I don't even know what the point of this euphemism would be. Medieval sources are hardly ambiguous on what they mean when they refer to witches. Trial by ordeal was used in many other circumstances as well and fire was not even the trial used on witches most of the time anyway, they were tried by water. They were also fairly clear on what they did to counterfeiters, there was no ambiguity.

The previous thread is at 499 posts, on the brink of autosage. So I open up a new one, because I have a thing to discuss as well with Bernd. But first thing first.

Finally I wanna watch these in their entirety, a series of Japanese films from the 70s The Yakuza Papers or Battles Without Honor And Humanity - which is also the title of the very first one.
I think the first five (what I'm planning on consuming) cover one full story, based on an OG yak's memoirs, published in a newspaper first. Then they made another three in the 70s, all standalone, and three more, two of them in this millennia.
They are in a certain subgenre of yakuza movies, which were fresh breeze at that time with their more realistic narrative and breakup with the "honorable samurai" romanticism of the previous era. They are also filmed in a documentary style, with handheld shaky cameras, and sometimes they even timestamp certain events as the movie plays - as far as I can tell based on the first one which I seen (but will rewatch).

Syria thread - Erdoğan edition Bernd 10/24/2019 (Thu) 01:43:41 [Preview] No. 30865 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Erdogan has met Putin and ironed out the partition of northeastern Syria. He gets to keep everything he conquered and the rest stays with Assad. YPG retreats from a 30km strip along the border, leaving the bulk of Kurdish-populated areas. Russo-Turkish patrols guard the safe zone. The deal shows two things:
By inviting Assad the SDF have completely relinquished their sovereignty. This was why they were so relutanct to receive aid during Olive Branch. As long as Erdogan maintains good relations with Assad and Putin, YPG will no longer bother him. If, however, relations sour then he can even expect a repeat of the 90s, when Hafez sheltered Ocalan and allowed PKK to use Syria as its base of operations.
The deal was discussed with Putin, not Assad. It's also clear who calls the shots.

For locals conquered by Peace Spring, the problem is not Turkey itself but its Syrian rebel puppets, who are thugs and mistreat the population, as has already been the case in Afrin. For the war as a whole, peace is now closer. Once Idlib is sorted out, a simple deal with Turkey can grant Assad the whole country except for al-Tanf.

Well, this thread is about exchanging thoughts about third world conflicts essentially. If we see something interesting on the internet, we share it, and comment it.
Feel free to look around on our board, check the Catalog, you might find a topic you are interested in. Don't worry about necrobumping, we don't mind old threads getting continued.
We have a some thematic threads, like music, news, politics, vidya, movies, books, those type of stuff can go there, we try to keep the board decluttered, since it's a slow board. Very slow nowadays.
If you are new to Endchan, you might wanna check the boards page, and look around what's what.

Tank thread reup. So.

Today I had to bury the 6th dead bird this year. Not even this year, this summer! I would say I never ever buried this much but frankly before this I had to do this only twice in my whole life. I dunno what's going on with them.
It would be easier to just dump them into the dumpster but frankly I rather spend some energy and give them an ok final rest.
During digging I came across a very interesting archaeological findings: this tank on picrels. It wasn't mine and not any of my pals owned such or even played around that spot in our childhood so I suppose one of my family members owned this there are some possibilities.
What Bernd think what type of tank is this? I think it has the Sherman looks.

Also this can be a general vehicle/weapons thread as well.

Politics Serious Discussion - Getting out edition Bernd 04/24/2020 (Fri) 17:54:06 [Preview] No. 36217 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Justice Minister Moro resigned. He is immensely popular and was doing a good job. There have been high-profile arrests and in 2019 the number of murders dropped by 10 thousand compared to the previous year, a decrease of a fifth. This is a result of many factors: in the Northeast cooperation among cartels reduced violence, but the reduction happpened in other states. Legislation wasn't a factor as there was next to no real change in this regard. He retains much prestige despite the scandal with his leaks, eternal hate from the left due to being Lula's nemesis and repeated disempowerment of the anti-corruption struggle by Congress and the Supreme Court.
What caused this was Bolsonaro's elimination of Federal Police director Maurício Valeixo, who had been picked by Moro. In his final address he noted that:
-There was no legitimate reason for this as he had been effective in his post
-This was a violation of the promise Bolsonaro made upon naming him Minister, that he'd have freedom to handle subordinates
-Bolsonaro also intends to replace a subordinate of the director, the Rio de Janeiro superintendent, and possibly other superintendents, which goes against his spirit of giving autonomy to subordinates
-A replacement now would create confusion and harm the Federal Police's functioning
-Bolsonaro personally told him this was a political choice

Why political? He did not say this straight, but what everyone says is that it was to protect Bolsonaro's sons from investigation, and hence why the Rio de Janeiro superintendent is also involved. Their corruption accusations are petty for Brazilian standards but what's bigger are accusations they might be tied to militias. As always Bolsonaro's sons are his priority. This behavior doesn't come out of nowhere as he has few contacts in Brasília, having lived his career in the sidelines, and many reasons to be distrustful. Moro isn't someone he has a reason to distrust but his sons still came first.

Parties do their job when they represent interests, because that's how parties become existence, that's their purpose.
When Athens fought against Persia, and they had to decide how, two parties emerged. One was formed by the landowners, those who lived from the rural lands, from gardens and herds, their interest was a strong army to field and stop the Persians before they plunder, burn, and butcher everything. The other was made by the craftsmen and traders, who worked in the city, who moved the goods with ships and sold them on far away lands, they wanted a strong navy that could face the Persians and prevent them from cutting the sea lanes. They faced a problem which they offered different solutions to, based on their differing interests. If they had a problem which threatened the interests the same, I'm sure they could come up with a solution together that would benefited everyone.
In your example the Labour and the Liberals found a common ground not wanting to close the mines, but some/many in those parties feels that isn't in their best interest so this leads to struggle within the parties. This is the problem of large "reservoir" parties that they gather many smaller groups with different interests and views.
Maybe parties should be more fluent, changing, volatile, always breaking up and reforming, to really represent the people behind them. But the tendency is that we have politicians only living from that business, who promote their own brand, which should be recognizable. Maybe never changing too - else they could be called hypocrites and turncoats, who change their mind at every two steps - or at least with the illusion of consistency.

Parties existed through the ages, they were there in feudalism too, the aristocracy, nobility, priesthood were divided along their own agenda, interests, and family ties.
I think the rising political ideologies, first with the Big Three (what I always say, Liberalism, Socialism, Nationalism), gave lasting lines to follow, relatively constant views on how to solve problems. But they have the problem that these ideas can go against interests, or even common sense. Or the other way around people can go against principles which they should follow based on their ideological preference (like some liberals wanting to restrict freedom of speech).
The Big Three is just not enough, and now myriad of tiny ideologies exist with their own particularities.
And there's ofc, the dichotomies, left-right, or conservative-progressive, also creating divisions, and raising the expectation from parties to follow such "values".
And lastly populism also makes things blurry and from what I can tell it isn't really about anything, just to "win as much people for our party as we can" and what they say changes with the wind. And this is why it sometimes used as a nicer way of saying demagoguery.

New phenomenon appeared in the politics of Hungary - maybe it's a start of a new practice -, the opposition parties are preparing for primary elections.
No dominant party can challenge the Fidesz's rule, so the opposition have to resort to cooperation no matter what ideology they (claim to) represent. But they have to make dealings: who will be their candidate for the position of Prime Minister? They want to decide this with the primaries.
I also suspect this is a way for them to appear relevant in the media, this pandemic really shot down every other topic than criticizing the government from all the possible angles how they aren't handling the situation well. So they're making big noise of this.
I really don't wanna go through who is who right now, I just wanted to write something. Maybe tomorrow.
The thing will done by October 23.

The issue is that who they are actually representing and who they claim to represent are so different. These actions don't benefit the vast majority of voters nor are they in the interests of the majority of voters. They just make things up about how it will be good for the nation which doesn't stand up for scrutiny and even people in government institutions speak out about it(this is happening with the gas led recovery, energy institutions, state governments and economists are saying it's ludicrous. Who suggested a gas led Recovery? Well the committee for Covid recovery was made up of people who stood to directly benefit from gas).

At least aristocratic parties did not pretend they were representing the people, democracy is a farce.

Bernd 06/06/2021 (Sun) 19:27:28 [Preview] No.43886 del
Yeah, representing the interests of just a thin group of people is a general problem.
I dunno how it goes elsewhere but here it's a problem that representatives cannot be called back (easily or at all) if they ain't doing what their voters wanted from them when they were elected. This is part of the problem. If in a constituency peeps could say "hey we saw you ain't voting in the legislation how we want you to, you are done, we send someone else" it might be a bit better.
On the other hand here representatives can gain seats via party lists without them having to compete in the constituencies. Whom would recall them?

I'm looking for a car but I don't know much about them. I am thinking of a car like a Fiat 500 or a VolksWagon Beetle. What other cars are there like this, cars that are small so they are easy to park and don't use much fuel but that also look interesting and nice.

Again dreamt a couple of weird vivid dreams.
I was outside, in the woods, but there was a line of cabinets, with glass on this side. A statue stood in the left corner, darkened by shadow. Tiny humanoids, size of ants went by it into a temple. They did not walk but floated, or how a conveyor belt would move them slowly. Someone else was with me I don't know who, some work needed to be done there. Then the statue moved to the right a bit and I saw that only the head is shaped, otherwise it looked like some longish rock. The head resembled to Chuthulhu's head. I reached in and flicked its "beard" it was like thick rubber. The eyes lighted up white, not sure if they were even before or as a reaction to my action. Then I/we went further and after the cabinet a row of what could be called as ossuaries or maybe just weird coffins on each other. They were made of clay and dirt, they reminded me of a cocoon of a certain wasp(?) which creates a hard shell for the larvae. On the short side facing us thick iron plate closed these boxes. Writings were on the surface I assume names and such. We had to break these things, I think the backside of these plates which were covered in clay. "Conservation of resources" or something like this was our reason. I woke up at this point.
Later this night, was morning then, I dreamt I put a bed, a large one, up to a tree, and covered it with a silk sheet.

I see lots of grills in light summer dress (above knee) and black leather jacket. Didn't notice this trend before.

And a hammer, a slotted screwdriver, an adjustable wrench, and a #14 spanner. So you can run it forever.

Newest Edition, with less Ghork.

First thing first:
That dude of the Primitive Technology channel and all his copycats have a great advantage: access to unlimited supply of bamboo. Unlimited to their objectives. That stuff is great, tuff as shit, light as feather, can be used to many purpose with little modification and not too much work.

I also read most of this:
I think technology and it's use are running forward and lawmakers lag behind. Those who spent any time in the past two decades on the internet have a giant heap of data about them. I think Bernd posted a video about a security eggsbert, I think he works kind of a private investigator many time cooperating with officials and he said in that video anonymizing data worth nothing it can be de-anonymized with ease, and both companies and govt agencies do.
Now this law was passed at 2016. This year the EU countries have to start implementing it. Who knows how long it takes until it finishes. The whole stuff is kinda vague (it can be modified when necessary tho), and I don't know for example how the EU can force a foreign company to do whatever? There are sanctions but what jurisdiction the EU has over a US based firm for example Facebook and how the EU will force the sanctions onto for example said company?

Did you specify time argument (now) for it? Shutdown uses 1 minute interval if no argument is provided.

>The first argument may be a time string (which is usually "now"). Optionally, this may be followed by a wall message to be sent to all logged-in users before going down.

>The time string may either be in the format "hh:mm" for hour/minutes specifying the time to execute the shutdown at, specified in 24h clock format. Alternatively it may be in the syntax "+m" referring to the specified number of minutes m from now. "now" is an alias for "+0", i.e. for triggering an immediate shutdown. If no time argument is specified, "+1" is implied.

Nah, I figured out what was the problem, and can replicate it.
First time when I logged in and wanted to turn the machine off, as a user I tried to execute the shutdown now command. As the result of the mistake I got the command not found error. Then using su switched to root, but was the same result. At this point I looked up the systemctl poweroff, and moved on thinking I have to use that from now on.
Turns out:
1. when I try the shutdown as user first, I'm gonna get the error as that "pseudo" root the su switches into;
2. if I try the shutdown command as "pseudo" root, without making the mistake of trying it as a simple user first, then it works fine;
3. moreover when I try the shutdown as user first, and then switch to "real" root with su - or su -l then that command will work regardless the mistake;
4. systemctl poweroff works as a simple user too.

I'm not sure how that pseudo root is called.

Oh, the /sbin/. I forgot that Debian still uses it - many distros already symlinked /sbin to /bin.

Yeah, it seems a PATH thing.
