Well, this happened.

I am legitimately surprised that it took this long and yet ever happened at all. I figured it would have been all or nothing for this fucking swine.

I guess he’s letting us know where we’re heading. Barbed wire and ammunition futures truly are the smart investments, boys and girls.

Update on the solo assassin-ing:

Way Of The Assassin was a breeze.  I already had an asssassin guild leader token, taken from one of the Carta prowlers, if I recall correctly, but I went ahead and did all three leaders anyway.  Funny thing, Flank Attack with the Skirmisher upgrade doesn't have a timer for the stealth.  It sometimes bugs out, especially in tight spaces or on uneven ground, but once you go into stealth, you stay there forever - until you attack, of course.  So all you need to do is poison weapon - flank attack, repeat and you can take down a large amount of enemies without ever exposing yourself.

Crestwood was saved from the undead and the rift closed.  Caer Bronach was captured, of course.  Crestwood highwaymen were eliminated.  Not yet dealt with "Snowball", the giant spider below Caer Bronach, but IIRC spiders are immune to poison weapons, so I want to wait until I have some better gear for that.  As I recall, Snowball hits hard, which is fitting for a spider the size of a house.  Then again, I did solo the Northern Hunter dragon at level 11.  Killed, first go.  Did "Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hards", finished with 100 approval.  "Under Her Skin" was also done...the Pride Demon went down pretty easily...had some trouble with some other demons and had to reload, but when I did they all vanished.  A shame, but it is what it is.

Demons are basically the only problem at this point.  Specifically wraiths, despair demons and rage demons.  The first two are only a major problem if they're promoted, or if you've fucked up and are out in the open with no defences and everything on cooldown.  They can have an impressive amount of barriers, if promoted...later on I intend to invest in some daggers with bonus damage to barriers to compensate for that.  Rage demons are more of an issue because they have some insane tracking, hit hard and fast, and apply a damage over time effect that can throw you out of stealth.  You can do a flank attack on them and they can turn around and hit you in the time between you moving behind them and going into stealth.  I've found it best to take them out with Hidden Blades, though if they're promoted that will only bring them down to half health.

Next steps: doing the Emerald Graves, the Plains and into the Western Approach.  Key things here are to get Andraste's Sacrifice, the necklace at Villa Maurel, and then get to level 13.  If you're not a warrior and you're soloing, Andraste's Sacrifice is the best necklace in the game.  The 10% cooldown bonus is nice, especially on the assassin which has no other way to reduce cooldowns, but the regen benefit it gives you is the highest in the game, a 50% bonus I believe.  And the "taunt" effect actually works in your favour, as it works exactly like the War Cry ability, giving you Guard when it attracts nearby enemies.  That and a Sigil of the Bronto can give you quite a bit of extra survivability. Level 13 is important because that's when the trial awards become Fade-touched crafting items.  These are unlevelled as well, so it's very possible to get Imperial Vestment Cotton or Plush Faustian Velvet or Dawnstone right away.  Especially since so far I have only gotten fade-touched obsidian and onyx, it will be a game changer in terms of the damage that can be inflicted.

I have no idea what you all are talking about, and I find that kinda stylish. Kutszchner talking what "the data" was saying about the polls though, that, that gave me pause.

yo that bowsette tho

Yes, I did have to look up “bowsette.” And yes, I admit I had no idea what it meant. Even my working knowledge of Ebonics didn't help me with that one.

But in truth, I find slang to be more amusing than annoying. Every American subculture has its own slang, and I don't doubt it's true of every subculture to be found anywhere. I think it's one of the things that identifies subcultures as subcultures.

I'm finding myself increasingly comfortable not understanding things like Fortnite dances and the word Yeet.

Tell me about it.

Sup Suu!!

I was literally just thinking -- remember how we all assumed Suu was probably a 40-something year old bald man? We're getting old, that guy is probably like 91 now.

I'm actually enjoying "yeet" "ooof" and "mood." The Waluigi stuff I can give a hard pass

In a crash house prices come down but the banks don't lend. Outside of a crash the prices are too high, I wouldn't pay much heed to that other than what is happening with the interest rate.

Things to consider:
If the Mortgage is less then your rent it tends to be a better option hands down.
Buy in a place that if the economy crashes you would be comfortable to stay if you were unable to sell.
