Real Estate Impact Of The Outer Ring Road Project In Hyderabad

Hyderabad Outer Ring Road

The Hyderabad Outer Ring Road (ORR) was formally renamed Jawaharlal Nehru Outer Ring Road after India's first Prime Minister. Locals also call it the Nehru ORR or the Hyderabad ORR. It was developed at the cost of Rs 6,696 crore by the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA), with a grant of Rs 3,123 crore from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The project encompasses over 6,000 acres of land and is intended for fast-moving vehicles with a top speed of 120 km/h.
The circular stretch improves communication between the NH-9, NH-7, and NH-4 roads, as well as the state highways heading to Srisailam, Vikarabad, and Nagarjunasagar. On both sides of the route, there are fences and multiple carriageways. The goal of the 158 km route is to increase connectivity and alleviate the flow of vehicle traffic on the current arterial highways between the outlying suburbs of Greater Hyderabad. Moreover, the State Transport Corporation intends to construct 22 terminal-cum-depots (TCDs) around the Outer Ring Road.

2023.03.24 08:24 LagExpress How to stop regional pricing abuse in Argentina

Step one stop taking cards from digital wallets that can be created by anyone anywhere ✅
Step two stop selling gift cards for argentina, the current provider for argentina never has stock anyways because bots are probably buying every key as soon as they are made available. ❌
Step three add an extra delay for selling steam items that you got from an account outside of argentina(45/90 days would be a good idea probably...) ❌
Optional, add an ID check for each steam account in Argentina, here there is an entity(RENAPER) that keeps information about biometrics of every citizen, every bank and digital wallet at the moment of creating an account will make use of their API to check if you are you by using a photo of your DNI that must be taken in real time using the app and a facial verification that also must be in real time using the app. ❌

Steps one to three are good options to remove most of the fake residents, the optional step will render the other steps unnecessary and would ensure that every account from argentina belongs to someone in argentina.

The reason I'm making this post is because a lot of game are getting really expensive to the average citizen here and the reasoning behind the price increases is that there is a lot of people abusing our regional pricing.

Sorry for my English 😢

2023.03.24 08:23 Clownzi11a Radioactive Tsunami Threat - It It Credible?
I was reading this story and thought to myself, that just seems like bs. I've seen underwater nuclear tests and it doesn't seem like a nuclear bomb would have enough energy to create a tsunami.
To test this I did some basic calculations which I'd like to ask about here to see if I missed something/ made errors.
It seemed like it might be possible based on the energy values but quite how they'd direct it I don't know.
Everything in metres (I have assumed it's a wave just travelling to simplify I know there is complex bathymetry near the shore :
Width of tsunami let's say 50km or 50000 metres
height of wave 30 metres
length of wave 96000- 482000 m (60-300 miles)
Velocity of tsunami 223 m/s (very surprisingly fast apparently in the open ocean they go hundreds of kilometres per hour!)
So, given these variables the volume of the water is
50000x30x96000=1.4x10^11 m^3 (smaller one)
So the mass (assuming density of water at surface level) is that times 1
1.4x10^11 kg
To move at that speed kinetic energy is 1/2 x mass x velocity ^2
.05x1.4x10^11x223^2=3.48x10^15 Joules
The largest nuclear device ever detonated the Tsar Bomba, which was a combined fission/fusion bomb
Converting 55 megatons to joules gives this value for energy
2.092e+17 Joules which is two orders of magnitude bigger.
So, it looks like it is possible, but intuitively something feels off (not that instinct every seemed that much good in physics).
Does anyone have any insight into this? It seems like an extremely bastardish weapon to use if it is real.

2023.03.24 08:23 Babypeachesxoxo Settlement demand question (MN)

I have a settlement hearing in 2 months, but we put in a settlement demand last week. Does the opposing attorney have a set amount of days to deny or accept? Like 7 days, a week, a month? My attorney said even if they agree it could take a while to get a judge to sign off on it and get it. I’m so ready to just be done with this and move on.

Usually I'm not the type of guy who celebrate these kind of things, but since I reached such an high number I couldn't do anything else but thank you, this sub is not the one I spent the most time on but it was you who made me arrive at these numbers, especially with my "italian" post and comments about the new season 😅.
But again, thank you so much for giving to me the karmas that I was missing to arrive to this big number, now we have to wait a little more for the new season to arrive (anche se apparentemente saremo noi Italiani a godercela per prima muahahah) and let's hope that in a future season some of our favourite ships will come true (please make CoDawn real I'm begging you).

2023.03.24 08:22 doubledoublebubbleb Survived redundancy only to be placed on a PIP because management are bullies.

UK based in my mid-30s. I worked at a relatively small company in their head office for two years that held a contract with a large UK company (over 500 stores). I made a few friends, but ultimately was breaking my back and not getting appreciated so I left.
I started a new job last February. First 4 months were fine, but then my boss started micromanaging us. The work flow became stressful. I felt like I was breaking my back all over again. Sometimes I'd leave work and walk to the bus stop in mild tears because I didn't know how to cope. I'd go to sleep at night and sometimes wake up in a cold sweat because I've had a nightmare about work.
Flash forward to this January where it was announced the majority of the team would be made redundant. My boss already knew this was going to happen so they left the same week it came to light. The whole they'd been secretly working in their notice period. The last thing they did before they left was grade us on our work to determine who would stay. I scored a 2/4 which meant I was due to go. Enough people took voluntary redundancy which saved me from having to leave.
My husband said if I feel like my back is breaking then to scale back. So I've tried taking this advice, but it has backfired and today I've had a yearly review. I'm convinced now that they are using a PIP as their next move to try to eliminate me. Nobody else is going on PIP. These were some of the things mentioned to me:
At the end of my review I was then advised I'd be on a PIP going forward. I feel like this is their next move to try to get rid of me.
I've had 5 interviews so far and unfortunately 4 of them have said the job has been placed on hold. The other one said too many people with similar backgrounds.
I feel so stuck and lost. I don't really know what to do. I have a mortgage. I can't just quit willy nilly. It's obvious we don't see the same things. I've told two people from my previous job about this and they were shocked. They feel lost without me. Called me the glue of my previous team and the only one who did the work. Think my current work is lying.
I wasn't sure if I could argue about my review or just bite my tongue. What do you guys think?

2023.03.24 08:22 TloyCO Where is the Mushroom Kingdom located in SMG4verse?

The fact that the Mushroom Kingdom has to obey the laws of the US Constitution and the fact they don't say anything about going to a different country in the Ohio episode suggests they are in America. There is the Cooking World Tour Episode (which DOES tell us that inkopolis is on an island outside Japan which makes sense) where they don't start in America, but there is nothing that suggest their starting location HAD to be the mushroom kingdom. In fact I'd say it proves they're in America more because they END in America and never leave and Mr.Monitor who lives the Mushroom Kingdom just so happens to ALSO be working at a jail in America, which suggests its the same place.
In terms of the USBs I imagine just there was a map of the real world and a map of the Mushroom Kingdom and Inkolopolis that kinda just had to be put somewhere.
But in terms of how the citizens explain it themselves, I'd like to imagine the Mushroom Kingdom had existed for a long long time beforehand and just kinda got discovered when people came to set up colonies, and later just became one of the states, which is why they obey their laws.
The fact that they apparently see no issue with going through Ohio to get to Texas as well as where their car is in the Cooking episode would suggest they are somewhere in Northern-Eastern United States.
So it could be New England, New York, or Pennsylvania. I could be wrong but I could've sworn New York has been mentioned as a separate entity at one point so it's probably one of the other 2. I think the mushroom kingdom being SMG4verse's version of Pennsylvania makes the most sense considering they didn't pass through any other states to get to Ohio nor did it take that long to get to Washington DC. The town they go through sometimes might be the SMG4verse's version of Pittsburgh (not Philadelphia because it borders another state and has a prominent river, and also is just further away from Ohio). If I am right about that, then I'd like to imagine one of the senators of the Mushroom Kingdom being John Heavyman, which is just John Fetterman but a Heavy Weapon's Guy.
Is this the most important question of SMG4 lore, probably not. Do I think SMG4 team planned this all out, not a chance. But it was bugging me ever since the Constitution episode so I had to write about it.

2023.03.24 08:21 Dangerous-Pin8335 My Story (TW suicidal attempt/suicidal ideation)

I've had symptoms of psychosis since I was 16 years old and from what I know I was already severely depressed by the age of 12 already fighting through suicidal ideation.
The first time I saw a visual hallucination it was a terrible experience. I couldn't sleep properly, I couldn't eat. I just didn't know what was happening. I was so scared and confused.
I told my mom about me having signs of depression when I was 12, she dismissed it. She knew that I was seeing and hearing things that weren't real. She pretended that it wasn't happening.
Now, it feels like I'm on edge worrying about when the next 'episode' will happen. Feeling like someone is about to chase me around. Feeling like someone is about to kill me. I don't know what to do. What's worse is that I'm currently suffering from delusions. I don't know if I'm able to 100% trust any of my family or friends anymore. It was just too much to the point that for the first time I had the guts to finally do a suicidal attempt just this February this year and ever since that day it has been hell everyday. My mom at least now is convinced to take me to therapy as I've seen a psychotherapist for 3 sessions so I guess some progressed is made. I'm currently sleeping and resting more nowadays not going to school cause school became such a big trigger for me now. Big crowds of strangers and loud noises such as people screaming and talking loudly which triggers auditory hallucinations of screaming and murmuring, the crowds triggering my delusions. I don't know what to do.
My suicidal thoughts are already hard enough but my auditory hallucinations make it worse by making me believe that I'm worthless, that no one will care if I die, that I should just kill myself. It makes it more harder to block of the thoughts but I'm trying I really am.
I just wanted to vent out what I've been going through to a place that people may finally understand. As much as my friends and my siblings hear about my symptoms and how hard they try to be understanding of what I go through. I always deep down still feel so unseen like no one understands me so I just wanted to tell my story to people that may understand me. Thank you for reading my story and to everyone that goes through this know that you are brave for facing this debilitating disorder. We got this.

2023.03.24 08:21 fiongill I miss my toxic sociopathic best friend and I don’t know what to do

TLDR; I miss my toxic sociopathic best friend who tried to take advantage of my mental illness and I don’t know what to do about it, advice needed!
I recently “broke up” with my best friend. Just a quick note for some context - she’s a diagnosed sociopath. We were best friends for about 3 years and we had big plans together - we wanted to go on a holiday to Bangkok, her hometown, we eventually wanted to move to a foreign country together and many more things like that. But it got rather ugly. We both loved playing text RPGs together and since I suffer from DPDR, I soon had trouble telling what’s real and what’s not. It led to me falling in love with a fictional character she created and projecting that obsession onto her. Basically, it all went downhill from there. I started to hate my best friend because my condition brought me nothing but anxiety and pain. I cried every day, I couldn’t eat or sleep. She started to withdraw from me - last summer, I graduated from military basic training and she didn’t even show up despite me expressing that I would love to have her there at the ceremony.
I was fed up and stopped initiating any contact with her. She then picked up on it, texted me and we had dinner where we both had some explaining to do. At this point, I finally told her about my DPDR situation and she confessed her love to me. I told her that for various reasons, I don’t want to be in a relationship with her, mainly because I don’t actually love her, but the fictional character she created, which she accepted (seemingly) well. We then went on to a really weird cycle of on and off texting and never actually meeting up while she preferred her other friends over me and never reached out. She expected me to do all the work in the relationship which I wasn’t content with because I hate one-sided relationships.
I’ve met my current boyfriend during that period. Since my best friend obviously didn’t want to meet up, I texted her about my new relationship since I thought it would be fair to tell her, and shit went down. She started manipulating me into leaving him even though I told her I was extremely happy with him because he keeps me in touch with reality and my DPDR symptoms are way easier to manage when I’m with him. She then went on to create a master plan involving my mental illness; she said that my mental health issues were actually kinda cute and interesting and she’d like us to keep having this weird online relationship and meanwhile, she could try to make me love her again (in the real life). She basically asked me to cheat on my boyfriend with her.
That’s when I decided to nope the hell out of that situation because she completely disrespected me, my boyfriend and my mental illness which I told her everything about and she seemed understanding about it, but as it turned out, she just tried to manipulate me in the end. I believe she never loved me, it was all about her happiness. Still, I really miss her and I’d like to reach out to her, even though I know it’s a terrible idea. Sometimes, I check her social media and when I see our mutual friends praise her for her awesomeness in the comments, it makes me want to throw up, because I know what kind of person she REALLY is. But somehow, I still crave her presence in my life constantly.
What would you do in my position? Thank you!

2023.03.24 08:21 LemmeSmash_Please Judge: Evidence supports guilty verdict in Vinton child's drug overdose death
A Vinton woman’s account of her toddler’s death just did not agree with the medical examiner’s findings.
That was the central conflict hammered out again and again Wednesday in Roanoke County Circuit Court. After five hours, the trial of Christiana Leigh Justice ended with a judge’s finding that the evidence supported guilty verdicts on charges of child neglect and felony murder.
Justice, 36, was accused of killing her 15-month-old son Jireh on October 21, 2021 by giving him methadone, a drug that Justice’s attorney, Suzanne Moushegian of Salem, said had been prescribed to Justice for years. Methadone often is used to treat opiate addiction.
Judge James Swanson said that while he was finding that the evidence supported Justice’s guilt, he would delay formally issuing a verdict. He scheduled a sentencing hearing for July 25 and ordered that a pre-sentence report be prepared.
Justice’s trial was a bench trial, with guilt or innocence decided by a judge rather than a jury. The case against her was largely circumstantial but included detailed statements that Justice gave to police, first on the morning her son died, then in a recorded interview two months later.
Justice did not herself testify Wednesday — and the defense put on no evidence — but her words to police became a main focus of the trial.
Roanoke County Commonwealth’s Attorney Brian Holohan called Vinton police officers who testified about being called to Justice’s apartment with emergency medical workers, and about the struggle to revive Jireh. By that point, though, the baby was limp and his face was a blue-gray color, Officer Jeremy Shrewsbury said. Jireh was rushed to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, but was declared dead there.
Lt. Scott Hurt recounted the story that Justice told officers that morning: that the night before, Jireh and his twin brother were congested and running low fevers; that she gave them a painkiller, either Tylenol or Motrin; and that she also gave Jireh, but not his brother, an antibiotic called Fluconazole that was left over from a prior illness.
Hurt testified that Justice told him the boys were put to bed in side-by-side cribs at about 6:45 p.m. and that she slept in another room until Jireh’s crying woke her up at 4:45 a.m. Justice said that she went and calmed him with a bottle of juice, then returned to bed — but Jireh began crying again and continued until about 5:45 a.m., Hurt testified.
Hurt and Vinton detective Sgt. Valerie Cummings, now retired, testified that Justice said she got up at 6 a.m. for work and that when she went to check on the boys at about 6:15 a.m., Jireh was unresponsive and cold to the touch. Justice said she put him on a bed near the cribs and tried to give him CPR, the officers testified.
Holohan played a recording of Justice’s 911 call, in which she repeatedly asked medics to hurry, saying, “My baby’s dying, he’s dead.”
Mark Bennett, a forensic scientist with the state crime lab, testified that investigators sent him the Fluconazole bottle. It held only a pink residue, which proved to contain 10 times as much methadone as it did Fluconazole, Bennett said. More pink residue on the tip of an oral syringe, which Justice told officers she used to administer the antibiotic, also contained methadone, Bennett said.
The inconsistency at the center of the case was highlighted by the testimony of Dr. Amy Tharp of the state medical examiner’s office.
Tharp said that her autopsy found that Jireh was killed by a lethal dose of methadone — and that his death occurred hours earlier than Justice said.
The boy’s body temperature when he reached the emergency room was too low for him to have died not long before that, Tharp said. Also, the contents of his stomach were too intact for death to have occurred in the morning, Tharp said.
Death probably was “closer to dinner than to when he was found,” Tharp said.
Holohan highlighted the discrepancy between Tharp’s findings and the accounts Justice gave to police. Jireh could not have been crying at 4:45 a.m. and 5:45 a.m. — because if he still was alive, his body would have been warmer and his supper would have been digested, Holohan said.
And if Justice was not telling the truth about the timing of the boy’s death, could her denials that she knew about the methadone in the antibiotic bottle be believed, the prosecutor asked.
Holohan said that perhaps Justice gave methadone to her son because she thought it would make him sleep, but gave him so much that it stopped his breathing. Or since the clinic where she obtained her methadone each day limited what she could get, perhaps she had hidden some in the medication bottle, then forgot about it, he said.
Holohan emphasized that he was not accusing Justice of planning her son’s death, but of an “accidental or inadvertent poisoning.”
Moushegian protested that Holohan’s theories were only speculation and said there was no evidence of willfulness, which was needed to support the charges. Holohan countered that in exposing her son to methadone, Justice was showing a willful disregard for his safety.
Justice was charged with felony murder, meaning a killing that occurred during the commission of another felony, which in this case would be child neglect.
“Why couldn’t this somehow be an accident?” Moushegian asked.
The judge scoffed. “How could this be an accident?” Swanson asked. “You’re discouraging speculation but now you’re inviting me to do the same thing.”
In her recorded questioning by police, which was played in court, Justice told Cummings that the father of her children must have put methadone in the bottle to frame her.
Holohan noted that the father, who had his own legal problems, was jailed a week before Jireh’s death. To accuse him of planting the methadone before then in a bid to injure Justice by harming his children, was “fanciful,” Holohan said.
Holohan noted that Justice wasn’t able to tell Cummings when or where she got the antibiotic or which boy it had been meant for, but that she knew it was in her refrigerator.
“She’s giving her child a medication that she has very little knowledge of where it came from. That’s according to her,” Holohan said.
Swanson said that he was finding that Justice put her son in danger.
“She should have known that what she administered contained methadone,” Swanson said.

2023.03.24 08:21 imonamouse4 Worried I'll Hate Modern Bikes

I ride a 2010 Salsa Big Mama — got it as a frame and built is up as a 1x9 with Reba 100mm fork. When the rear shock (a Fox RP2) bit it, I put on a Monarch which eliminated my only real complaint — pogoing on climbs — now it's tamed and steady even when ridden open. I don't ride crazy stuff (though I enjoy me some single black diamond techy). I like to climb and enjoy the nimbleness of a steeper head tube angle/lower trail setup. At some point tho, this bike will give up the ghost and when I've tried slacker bikes (like 99.9% of bikes it seems) at a demo or I throw a leg over a friend's bike, I really hate it. They feel sluggish and nasty like a tank with pedals, and with greater wheel flop, they wander on climbs and fight me when I'm at my weakest. I could almost swear that one bike, with a burlier, larger-diameter stanchion fork that I tried was contributing to me feeling beat up at the end of a loop I was familiar with just because it was way less flexy and compliant than my older, XC-oriented fork. Things have changed a lot in bike geometry with longer reach, shorter stems, and steeper seat tube and head tube angles. I don't race, but if I were getting a new bike, is what I like basically an XC race bike? Am I alone in disliking slackemodern bikes? Constructive comments and thoughts are welcome. Also, thoughts and prayers for my aging bike and self.

2023.03.24 08:20 SnooHamsters7554 Help needed.

Hello everyone, this is going to be a long post I feel like. But there’s a lot of things I need to say. You can skip it if you want. My thoughts are all over the place so this post might not flow properly.
I am 33M from south asian country, currently residing in Australia. It all started when I had breakup with my Gf 3years ago. Her family agreed but I was not able to convince my family(my sister and mom) so we broke up. That was also a long distance relationship. She is now married with another guy. At first, I had suicidal thoughts as well but didn’t act on it. I used to drink a lot and had an idea of never getting married. After few months, I have completely stopped talking to my sister. (There were many occasions that my sister showed me that she didn’t like me, but I used to worship her, so always made excuses for her and continue to be her little brother) I used to have lot of love and respect but now I don’t even care if she dies. I do not have any emotions towards her. My mom is in early 60s, even though my respect for her had diminished. I continue to be her son and still in touch.
My main source of sadness is my mom and sister. I did not expect this from them. But it happened. I don’t share my things much but I shared these with 3 of my friends. And with them as well, we had a fallout and we don’t talk anymore. So from this experience, I have decided not to share anything to anyone.
After few years, I realize that life will be really lonely if you don’t have partner so after 2 and half years later from break up, I approached two other girls. One of them was a friend, whom I shared everything (mistake again). She rejected me , told me she did not have feelings towards me. She was still hung up with her ex who ghosted her. Parted my ways with her. We are still in our socials but I have muted her.
Second one is the person whom I came to know about some of our mutuals. Our mutual person told me about her and the idea of getting married. She is in her early 30s. She lives in another state and I have never met her in real life nor we have called each other. I added her in my fb and insta.
Our mutual person told me about this person when I recently had a breakup. I was already in a bad place so I said not ready that time. I disclosed this information to her when we had little chat on socials. I had tried to get to know her but she was already replying with short messages, close ended replies. Basically she didn’t show any interest towards me. After 3mths of bland conversations, I asked if we are taking this forward to which she replies she is not ready yet, confused and she needed time to focus on other part of her life. She also said to me to go as I wish and not wait for her. This definitely means she is not into me. I parted my ways. And I have muted her as well. Last conversation happened about 9mths ago. She has never contacted me and I have never approached her either. I actually dont know much about her, other than her name, profession. I feel like she has moved on.
Social media: even though I have muted them and my friends, blocked my sister. I sometimes stalk their profiles and I become sad. For that I have made separate accounts too. A bit of my sadness comes from social media too, thinking that everyone is moving on with their life while I am stuck.
I am an adult and I should act like one. But there is so much sadness, loneliness, frustration and repressed anger in me. I don’t know what to do. This mostly stems from my mom and sister but other events also contributes to this.
I have tried to better myself. I have started gone to gym, three times a week, lost 7kgs. I have got new job as well. I live alone. I make bed and take care of myself well in other parts. But I am really lonely. (Loneliness from everything, from friends and family. I sound desperate to get into relationship but I am not. I just feels like it never ends. I have a thought to get professional help too but they are expensive. I don’t know what to do.

2023.03.24 08:20 lovemehitme 25 [F4M] [F4F] - British Columbia / Anywhere - An Open Environment

Hi. I've been able to meet a lot of cool people here. Make some connections that felt surreal and taught me so many things. Learning about who I want to be, who I want to be around, all the good and bad that comes with connecting with another human being. I'd like to see if I could find more connections like this.
I don't know exactly what dynamic I want this to be. Just friendship or if I'm even open to anything more than that. What I do know is that I just want to connect with someone kind. Someone who is open to being themself. Who is also open to allowing those around to be themselves. I just want to feel free to be whoever I am whenever I am whoever that is. Whether you're neurodivergent or neurotypical, please reach out if you think we'd get along :).
A look at my profile may be a little wild to some, but who I am outside of some very interesting thoughts/desires/ramblings is someone who can come across as very benign. Though, you shouldn't reach out to me if you want someone who fits nicely into any box.
I want to be myself, with no mask. And connect with someone else who wants the same. Tell me things about yourself. A secret you never told anyone. Something you worry those who know you in-person would judge you for. As long as you don't cause harm to unwilling participants, I'm willing to listen to all your dark thoughts. Or all your positive thoughts. Or all your mundane thoughts. Or whatever.
I like music a lot. Most genres, though I don't go out of my way to listen to country or EDM. I only recently (yesterday, or actually maybe this morning since I was actually up really late because I swear I have consensual insomnia or something) listened to the new Måneskin album and loved it. I like hip hop, and (pop-)rock mainly. Or, that's what I quickly go out of my way to listen to at least. I love anime. Attack on Titan is my favourite. I want to get back into reading more. I also want to get back to my more creative self; write more or make cute videos that just make me feel good. I don't know if I have the travel bug, but maybe we could travel to meet if we become friends. I wanted to do something new this summer anyway.
I want to talk about anything with you. There are very few things I hold tight to morally: don't cause harm to others, don't take away others' autonomy. I don't want new connections with anyone who is rigid with their ideological stances that even hearing a different opinion starts a war. I don't think that's helpful in the macro, and I don't take well to that in the micro (my own relationships). If politics are super important to you and you want to talk about it everyday with every single person and never relax or enjoy your own life, we won't get along. Still, I love a nice little convo/debate or two about random social topics. Again, I do want to be able to be honest with whoever I connect with. Want to tell me how you think [redacted] , okay. I'll listen. Want to tell me how you dislike [redacted] , okay. As long as you aren't forcing your views on others or upset that not everyone will agree with you, we can very likely get along.
Tl;dr: I just want to have a super close connection where we can be unhinged in whatever way we would like.
I'm open to being friends with any women who may message me if we click :). If you're a guy, don't message me if you're in a relationship.

2023.03.24 08:20 omriha12 Lessons after 1 year on DMing

Hey! After dming a homebrew campaign for 3 friends form high school I wanted to share my experience.
1- As Shia once said "JUST DO IT". I was lurking, dndless, on this sub for to long, if u are reading this and are currently at this status- do that step and start, be the dm, go to your local game store, search social media- the friends I play with are guys I haven't met since we played in middleschool, just do it.
2- Run something that u find fun! I am running a homebrew that I made, the whole world is not finished and my players love it. if u would love the world u are running, your passion translated into the game and imo it will make it better.
3- STEAL- if I like something and I think it will fit into the game- guess what I'm not fazed by copyright since this is my home game and I'm not making money and if a lawyer shows up riding a dragon leading an army of dollar golems inside my game it will just be cool. no really, come at me. In all seriousness, as matt colvile said- a writer is only as good as the obscurity of his references. (or something like that).
4- TREADMILL- I'm an accountant and I work full time. I don't have time to write the lore of every snail and stone that is in my world. The world u make needs to exist just beyond the horizon. have references for things the pcs didn't know- but that does not mean it needs to be flashed out.
5-SECRETS- I know its tempting, but never ever tell anything to your players EVER. DO NOT rob your players the experience of living inside your amazing world through their characters. it will be tempting sometimes, but its like that one extra shot of whisky, u think it would be great, and when u do it its great, but a second after u get that bad feeling, and later that night u regret it.
BONUS ROUND- Fudge dice rolls when u feel like u are rolling too bad or too good. Use kids to make your pc's feel cool (practice WOAH sounds in private). don't be afraid to say no when the answer is no. don't be afraid to kill a pc if they do something very dumb- it makes your world feel real and the dangers feel dangerous (if the pcs can get away with murder, guess what, they will murder). Finish with a bang! every good thriller tv show does it, finish with the stakes high!
BONUS BONUS ROUND- The best feedback is your PC's reactions. The third roll of death saves, 2 AM, the druid is down and rolling, 2 fails. He rolls- its a 6. They all say the dice hit the hand of another player and there should be a reroll. I say no, remembering that the druid has inspiration- he rolls again, its a 15. They all scream and cheer. THIS, is the greatest feeling in the world. This is why we do it. When they ask till what level is the campaign- getting excited then I tell them 20, I know I did a good job.

2023.03.24 08:20 Oprost I’m Feeling Pretty Hurt by Some of the Posters in This Sub

It took A LOT of courage for me to even start posting here. Maybe it sounds delusional but even as I write this and all my other posts I have a constant underlying fear that my ex might somehow stumble on my posts somehow and figure out who I am and try to ruin my life.
I'm not going to go into the specifics of my relationship they're in my post history if you want but I left an abusive relationship that lasted about 4 years. The abuse was predominantly verbal & emotional but eventually, it did become physical as well. She was my first real love so I kept telling myself if I just kept loving her it had to get better, I didn't want to lose her. It only got worse as time went on. Eventually, I realized that it wasn't ever going to get better.
By the time I left my mental health was nonexistent. I was in a near-constant state of panic. For the last few months, I spent most of my time confined to the spare bedroom to avoid her as best as I could. I ate only once a day and tried to use the bathroom as little as possible in an attempt to not make my ex even angrier at me because even seeing me would be enough at that point. My heart rate was having issues, it would skip beats, or I had the most intense and terrifying palpitations I've ever had to where I felt like it was trying to jump out of my body. I started to struggle with a lot of other issues that I know now were due to the relationship. My skin was peeling seemingly overnight no matter how much lotion I used. I was so scared of her making my life even worse that I waited until a day she was gone for most of it to move out & even then I left her most of my belongings in hopes that it would be enough to have her not care about the few things I did take.
I've tried to share my story here & also provide encouragement and help to others with their own breakups. Posting here has made me more hopeful than I ever have been previosuly, and having others thank me for my advice has made me feel good too. But the select few that have nothing better to do than make mean comments have really hurt my feelings. Being accused of being the problem or reading things like "it's no wonder she left you" even though that isn't the case makes me wonder why some people are posting here in the first place.
Idk, it just sucks when you're in a community that's supposed to support people and you get an ignorant few. For a long time, I wasn't sure I wanted to be alive anymore after all of the stuff I dealt with. I did truly think I was the problem for so long until I learned about narcissism recently and realized I had dated one. Throughout the relationship, I constantly apologized because I believed her manipulation. It was my fault every time. Even when she did finally decide she could get away with hitting me I apologized because it was my fault. So to finally start to climb out of the haze I was in has taken a lot. As a guy a lot of society very much views talking about you being in an abusive relationship as taboo. "You're stronger than her you can't get abused by a woman" is still something a lot of people thoroughly believe. Especially in the very conservative area I live in. As a result, this has been the only place I've shared this with. Everyone else in my life has been given a simple 'she wasn't nice and I wasn't happy with the way she treated me' and no one will probably ever actually know anything I dealt with.
So go ahead, accuse me of being the problem if that's what you need to make yourself feel better. Accuse me of being the red flag. Accuse my feelings of not being right despite not knowing anything about my experiences. Victim blame if that's what gets you off. I've gotten through worse so it doesn't matter to me at this point.
But just maybe consider the next person you do it to might struggle even more with your premature judgment and short-sighted comments. Maybe they don't deal with your bullshit ignorant remarks as easily as I will. Just something to keep in mind. Luckily this has been a small minority but even still I think this shit is disgusting.
Just needed to get this off my chest after noticing a few idiotic comments today. If it goes against the rules to post it delete it

2023.03.24 08:19 Evilangel4194 Victim Impact Statements

Just a quick post I'll come back tomorrow and tell more of my story but my question is for those of you that have gone through the court system, got a conviction, and gave a Victim Impact statement how did you even begin to do it?? How did you write it, how did you say it?? What's the very first step?? I'm completely lost!! Did you read it in open court or submit it to the judge to be considered in his sentencing??!! I was going to go to the sentencing hearing May 11th but then had the thought that I don't want to read my statement in front of him. I don't want him to hear the account of his violence from my perspective, in my words, so he can add it to his memories of the rape!!
