    First off... Congratulations Stan on the big day coming/gone, and enjoy your time spent disconnected from the interwebs! I'm sure that the Destiny crew will not understand at all, and will blame you for everything that goes wrong from this point forward. No pressure. Incidentally, I've been saving this post for a time when I could once again add an image 😃

    Yes, that's right! This weekend will be the premier of the JackBox Party Pack 7 in MadCast! Come check out the newest line of games with everyone, or just watch the rest of us bumbling about and dropping spicy memes. Be there or be ⬜ Disclaimer: Social Saturday is meant to bring people together that might not meet otherwise, especially current candidates, and encourage interactions in a casual environment. The type of humor and behaviour leans heavily on the adult side, although the CoC is still enforced during the event. This event is not intended for anyone under the age of 18.

    You may be thinking, what the heck is this? Well, in that case you are about to experience a MadCast throwback, but a good throwback! For those of you who don't know, Two Rooms and a Boom is a social deduction Discord game (so no additional installations required) that wonderful @MadCast: VoShay introduced to the community last year. He has been kind enough to lend me the materials to reboot the event, starting a chain of events I'd like to host during the midweek time (sometimes Wednesdays, sometimes Thursdays, maybe even some Fridays, we'll just have to see depending on my school schedule). I'd like to keep it relatively light, but touch on multiple different games that aren't played as much or don't have a current weekly event (Secret Hitler, League of Legends/TFT, Two Rooms and a Boom, maybe some civilization V or something along those lines). As it gets going, I'd love for those attending to drive the selection of the next week's game. Anyways, VoShay laid out the rules VERY well when he posted the original thread for this, so I will be copypasta-ing them here (while citing my sources to avoid plagiarism ) If the turnout is good, we MAY even get to see the crowning of an ancient, special, and secret role after the last game of the night. This role has been worn by the most esteemed people in MadCast. You definitely want to be here to witness the next beholder of the secret title. The rules for the game are simple- Everyone is separated into two (Discord) Voice Channels, and teams are randomly assigned, with one person being the President on the Blue team, and one person being the Bomber on the Red team. In this tense hostage situation, you can trust no one- and the elected leader of each room will send one (or more people) as a trade between rooms as people desperately try to figure out who is working for who, where the President is, and more importantly, where is the bomb?! After 3-6 rounds of typically less than 5 minutes, the final trade occurs. If the Bomber is where the President is, the Blue team loses. If the President and the bomber are in two different rooms, then the red team loses. A more thorough explanation will be provided at game time. Games typically take less than thirty minutes, and I'm looking forward to getting as many people together as possible and getting as many rounds in as we feel like. Please post below to show your interest and help me get a good idea of the size of the crowd we'll see that day. Instructions and Rules: Goal: Blue Team- At the end of the game, for the President to not share a room with the bomber. Red Team- At the end of the game, for the President to share a room with the bomber. Gambler- At the end of the game, before the team victory is announced, they must predict who will win publicly. If correct, the Gambler wins with that team. How to Play: The group will be divided into equal groups and separated into two Discord rooms. Everyone is given a character card. This is considered secret info unless shared. A 3 minute (or longer) timer is started. The following occurs: 1. A leader is selected. The first person nominated by someone other than themselves becomes the leader of that room. Leaders may be deposed/changed by the current leader giving leadership to a willing player, or by a majority vote of confidence. You can call for the replacement leader to be yourself, unlike the original nomination of a leader. Leaders choose who hostages are each round, but cannot choose themselves. Myself and any chosen volunteers will be in rooms to verify these changes. 2. During the 3+ minutes of the round, you converse with the people in the room with you. You may speak publicly in voice, you may show the entire room your card by announcing your color and role, or you may private message/query anyone IN your room in Discord to privately share cards or discuss teams. The rules at this time: You must stay in that (discord channel) room unless you move to the other room as a hostage later. If you ask to share cards, you must share cards both ways- there is no 'tricking' someone into telling you their card and not telling them back. You can ONLY share cards with someone in your room. If you are later in different rooms, please refrain from messaging that person again for the duration of that game/your time in different rooms. If there are 10 or more players, you may share only the color instead of the whole card (color and role). If you set up color and role, you must show color and role back. You are welcome to lie, bluff, mislead, organize, etc. as much as you want, but you must be completely honest when sharing cards with someone as a trade. (e.g. you can tell the entire room that you are blue, or you can try to get the room to share colors verbally, but if you and someone else are going to share cards, you must TELL THE UNVARNISHED TRUTH about your color and role (unless only sharing color in a 10+ person game). 3. When the round timer ends, Leaders pick 1 hostage (potentially more in a large game- I will instruct if different) to trade rooms. Leaders cannot pick themselves. When leaders have figured out who to trade, the trade happens, and a 2 minute (or longer) timer begins. The third round is 1 (or more) minutes long. More rounds, or longer rounds, may be instituted to facilitate better play in a voice server vs. a physical house as needed. You will be aware of any changes to the rules. 4. We determine who wins by having the President, the Bomber, and everyone else reveal who they are.

    RFM Application: Apoz

    Hello, I am the one they call Apoz. I would like to submit an application for RFM. I am wanting to become an RFM to help revitalize the league of legends section of the community and forums. With oversight, I would like to expand recruitment efforts to help create a healthy base of league players, and scheduled/non-scheduled events, perhaps reintroducing competitive and/or tournament formats. I am also interested in exploring other ventures that might possibly fit for additional or alternative MadCast main games. I am open to any questions. Thank you for your consideration.

    It has been an interesting year that is for sure. My job went 100% work from home which I like as I drove 22 miles one way to work each day and was putting miles on my car and with traffic 1.5 hours of my day was spent sitting in a car. Due to working at home, I was able to cut a lot of expenses and start saving money. I got rid of my car(it was a newish car, I was paying almost 450 a month car payment, plus 250 for insurance). After not having a vehicle for a bit decided I wanted something to get around with, so at the young age of 41 I decided to buy a motorcycle. Granted I had never ridden before, but grew up around them. So it was a fun learning experience. Had it for a month and a half now and I love it, it's been a nice destresser on the weekends when I just want to go for a ride for a bit(I am outside the city some, so its nice 2 lane highway desert scene. I will post a pic in discord for those who want to see it. It was nice going from 450 payment/250 insurance to 100 bike payment and 40 for insurance. I have been very thankful to keep my job through all of this and we are being advised we will work from home until at least summer of 2021, so it's been a great relief not having to worry about the stress of dealing with what may happen when forced back into the office. While Phoenix has had a huge spike in cases, I am lucky to say nobody I know has contracted it and we have all been taking precautions to keep that up.

    The SFMs are always grateful for anyone that shows interest in becoming an RFM and volunteering so much of their time to the community. Whether their efforts are for a specific game or more for general interests, the RFMs are the building blocks of the admin team. With the cycle now ending, we would like to congratulate @MadCast: Qrow for being awarded Outstanding Ranking Full Member. Qrow has worked far beyond what he has been expected to do and I personally don’t think I would have completed the Awards system rework for at least another year without his help. He taught himself how to use a new graphics program and created over a hundred renditions of redesigns. He has also been helping me with documenting all of the awards our current members have or should have, and the huge project of recording every single MadCast member ever on a massive timeline. Though he doesn’t usually dominate the room, his efforts in the background are greatly appreciated and benefit every member of MadCast. Congratulations Qrow!

    Greetings everyone! Today marks the completion of my last dice tray for our wonderful Living D&D DMs! The last tray I made has a bit more eyeball work in it as I ran into some difficulties when working with the odd angles and such but it was a ton of fun to build. Stain - Black Cherry Wood - Pine Base - Black Satin Lining Dimensions - 16" x 13"x 1 1/2" Dice used to show off the tray - Light Transparent Blue/Green https://imgur.com/o16bpe2 https://imgur.com/38dCkdK https://imgur.com/JQcuIZO With the completion of the 6 dice trays I set out to make, I will be setting up a time in Discord where we can all get together and figure out who will be getting which one as well as shipping details. I'm sorry for such a long delay getting you guys these trays. I will also be sending a special gift along with each of the trays that will remain a surprise until everyone receives their dice tray. I want to thank each and every one of our DMs that participated in running sessions during MadCast's Living D&D games as well as those of you who have expressed interest in becoming DMs after the event. Lets not forget about all the wonderful players new and old, to D&D that played as well. You guys are awesome! @MadCast: Munsa @MadCast: VoShay @MadCast: JigglesTheFett @MadCast: The Prince @MadCast: Kal @MadCast: Khaos @Starlight

    Discord Pronouns

    MadCast, I've noticed a few of our higher ups (@MadCast: Kitty Stark, @MadCast: The Prince, and @MadCast: RedJustice) have each included preferred pronouns in their Discord names. Discord holds a 32 character limit in nicknames so "MadCast: (They/Them)" takes up 20 characters leaving some of us with longer Discord names (including myself,) unable to add the preference without either altering the "MadCast:" tag, or our nicknames a la name change requests. Therefore I propose we add a #self-roles channel where you can include preferred gender pronouns. There's a wonderful bot that you can use to implement in the Discord for self assigning roles. *an example. Thoughts?

    Intro - Jay

    Hey hi everyone! My name is Jay! I'm finishing up my undergrad in music education and I like to play random games with chill people. That being said, I have done a fair share of server hopping on discord to find a place to fit. One day, a little over a week ago now, @MadCast: horsedolphin3 invited me to the MadCast discord to play a game of Among Us. The general vibe on call with the members was so amazing that I came back a few more times. Then next thing I know I'm at a Social Saturday goofing around with people and having a really great time. From there I branched off a bit and ended up talking to @MadCast: Qrow about music and school stuff and then vibing with @MadCast: Kitty Stark on her streams! There are many other people in the server that I have had great experiences with - gaming and just chatting - however if I were to list them all we would be here all day. Soooo, when Town Hall happened on Monday and the idea of candidacy came up, I really started to think about it. I soon came to the conclusion that this group is one that I wanted to invest in. The community is amazing and who doesn't like being able to hang out and play games with friends and future friends in a positive environment? I talked to both Kitty and Qrow for a bit about this decision and... well , I would like to formally state that I want to apply for full membership. ^^ I hope to get to know you all better and hope to vibe with you soon!! ^^ - Jay -

    Good Morning MadCast! I've sat on this post for a few days, but feel it is important. The state of the world is weird and different. Some things are moving quickly, some are moving slowly. And every person is handling things differently. I want to make this a place where people can talk and support each other. We're not alone in this day to day grind. For myself, I'm in my fifth week of grad school this year, out of thirteen total weeks. It's scary to me that it seems to be going by super fast and I don't feel like I'm getting as much done as I need to. This is piled on top of the stress of applying for DMA programs, deciding which schools to apply to, making sure I can have all the requirements. Because of all this, I fall into the trap of having so much to do, that is causes anxiety to where I don't do the work and procrastinate, then become depressed that I did not get work done. I usually manage to bounce back a little during the week, but it's a vicious cycle. The inability to hang out with people in person as easily as I would like is also biting at me. It's slowly bringing me down. I find myself wishing more and more I could invite someone over to watch a movie or sit down for lunch with a friend. I start to worry that the loneliness will be permanent. At least, that's what my brain tries to tell me. However, there are also positive things, that I hope you all will also share. For one, it has been incredibly comforting to have MadCast around as a solid constant. I talk to people here every day, I hang out or play games with y'all. It's a great way to stay connected to people I enjoy being around. It keeps me grounded and not in my head so much. Another thing is that even though not hugging people sucks, I still get to play music at school. We just socially distance while we're doing it, but it's so much fun to be able to play music again, I didn't realize how much I needed it. I have also gotten into the habit of being proud of the amount of work I have done, given that it's during weird times. It's better than beating myself up for otherwise. And so, I invite you to talk about how your life is going. I hope you all are hanging in there if not doing well. If you ever need someone to talk to or wanna hang out in a channel, my DMs are always open and I always have discord up on my computer. Have a wonderful day MadCast.

    Assuming that the next Town Hall will be on the 5th of October, I'd like to have each of the recipients of the dice trays join me in a channel after Town Hall so I can get the required information to send them out and figure out who is going to be getting what one. If you are unable to make Town Hall or unable to stick around until the end of Town Hall please let me know and we will figure out something. In true D&D fashion I figured we would roll initiative to see what order people get to choose what one they would like. @MadCast: Munsa @MadCast: VoShay @MadCast: JigglesTheFett @MadCast: Khaos @MadCast: The Prince @MadCast: Kal

    MadCast as a community exists primarily to serve its members, but there are also Full Members who have given back and worked to contribute their efforts for the benefit of all. The administration team would like to recognize those who went above and beyond during this past cycle, and especially the most Outstanding Full Member, @MadCast: AngleOfDeath. Since the moment they became a Full Member Angle has been personally running game servers for MadCast players, adapting to requests for mods or different games over time. Angle is not one to hold the spotlight for long, but their generous work has been noticed and appreciated. Congratulations to AngleOfDeath, and thank you for being so outstanding! The admin team also wants to acknowledge the other candidates for this cycle, which were @MadCast: majorhoward and @MadCast: Suix.

    Hi everyone! I am now running Storm King's Thunder a second time and we are about 2/3rds of the way through the first Chapter of the campaign. The campaign has 3 chapters and then branches out with player choice, more so than any other campaign published for 5e. From levels 5-8 the game is a sandbox allowing for development of backstories and to add depth and colour to the setting which is the Sword Coast and the Savage North of Faerun. In this campaign we have the following characters: Obelisk Alpha Slimy Jim Terrence (Our very own @MadCast: Don Scuoglio) Nebil Quill So what is Storm King's Thunder, well here is the blurb from WoTC: So why am I posting??? I would like to open this up to 1-2 players each session, from the community. You will join our brave adventurers as they bumble through the campaign, staying for a session or three, and perhaps be recurring?! So this will involve a short conversation to go over your character idea and work out how we will insert you into the game. Your character can help explore aspects of a core characters backstory or to assist with plot hooks and to add that depth and colour to the world by bringing in your character with their hopes, dreams and issues. Your character will be at the same level as the rest of the party and I am fine with fun builds you want to try out! In fact 3 of 4 characters use classes developed by Mage Hand Press! (Which I have access too via their Patreon, lovely people so check out their site or reach out to me for a preview!) Details: This will run every other wednesday, so twice a month. First session to be opened up to the community will be Wednesday 21st October!!!! We get on zoom by 5/7/8pm EST and start shortly after. Sessions don't generally longer than 3.5 hours. We use Roll20 and Zoom as we record the sessions, we have no intention to publish the session widely and will not do so without consent. For all of this, while we would love to see your lovely faces, webcams are optional! That said, I vastly prefer to not have a split between character sheets on Roll20 and DnDBeyond so would highly encourage sheets to be made in Roll20. Please post confirmation of interest below, I will regularly ask SFM+ to clean the thread but I also will be working with the drop in players to post session updates, probably a short video recording recounting the session shenanigans!

    MILK: A Scientific Survey

    Hello yes I've been certified by The Association of Milk-based Product Enthusiasts to conduct this very important survey to help them with their research. This is not at all meant to gather tactical information to ease the process of forming alliances behind the scenes with like-minded milk flavorers. It is also irrelevant as to what method you use to obtain your flavored milk, be it an organic chemistry set at your domicile or simply purchasing pre-flavored milks from people that you trust to know what they're doing. Be it cows milk, almond, coconut, goat, or otherwise, what is your favorite flavor of milk? Answer the question.

    This is a character background for the table top game being run by Munsa for a Blades in the Dark Vigilantes crew (aka The Deluded Avengers). I am playing a Whisper by the name of Alicevil Shrike, whose Vigilante name is Stormcrow. Here is the story introducing my character's heritage. There will be another story subsequent to this explaining her background, including: How she arrived in Doskval; The reason for her Vice; Her subsequent experience as a Sparkwright. Enjoy! The storm had been raging for three days straight. The Tycherosi bloodhunter ship Sangnarok had been through worse weather, but this was definitely a contender. Peering out over the dark thrashing expanse, Captain Shrike shivered in anticipation. For those who could read the seas, and her clan had long possessed that ability, the pattern was clear. A Leviathan was rising. The screaming wind blended into the thunder of the ship's blood drums, amplifying their allure, and the sea boiled in response. Sailors lined the gunwales, their eyes fixated on the depths below as the ballista crews prepared to anchor the ship. Sangnarok suddenly jolted up, its flat bottomed hull lifted out of the ocean on the back of the monstrous creature, and the seasoned crews immediately fired their poison dipped harpoons fore, aft and midships into the tough hide. Heaving in on the lines, the sailors tied off the harpoons, securing the ship to its temporary dock. Shimmying down on knotted lines, the crew rapidly begin drilling through the barnacles and flesh. Surgically removing large swaths of hide, they took care to avoid the slow moving tentacles, limbs and maws that protruded from the titan's back, all the while searching for a vein. The anesthetic on the harpoons quickly seeped in until the only movement near the ship was that of the ant-like sailors scurrying about the monstrous sea demon's back. A shout broke the feverish mood as a driller dove aside to avoid a sudden gush of hot red toxic blood and, as the stream's pressure subsided, the crew quickly inserted a hose into the vein. Satisfied that the ship was as safe as it could be given the circumstances, Captain Shrike gave the order to connect the hose into the Sangnarok's pump. The holding tanks below deck began to rapidly fill, forcing the lighter salt water ballast out through the tank top valves and outboard under the supervision of the engineer. On the weather decks above, a smile crinkled the Captain's eyes as she observed her daughters Alicevil and Dusk assisting in the mayhem, struggling to haul the heavy pumping hoses for the busy crew. This had been their clan's legacy for over a century, and her daughters had clearly inherited the Shrike spirit. A steady background presence, the blood drums continued their ritual beat, encouraging the demon below them to remain on the surface while the Sangnarok sated itself like a giant steel tick. A slight decrease in the wind, barely noticeable, was the first indication that something was amiss. Raising her eyes to the closest submerged edge of the Leviathan a hundred yards away, Captain Shrike's lips hardened into a thin line. A slight wake was steadily growing as the monstrous beast slowly picked up speed, a behaviour hitherto unreported by any of her ancestors. Never before had the sea demons prematurely broken the blood magic ritual. Fearing that the creature might also submerge, Sangnarok still fasted to its back, the Captain didn't hesitate. Slamming the ship's bell in rapid succession, she raised her voice "Emergency Cast Off! Back to the ship, stand by to cut lines! Seal the bloodtanks and release all hoses! THIS IS NOT AN EXERCISE!" The clan moved quickly, keenly aware that every second mattered. Only immediate obedience had saved countless generations of their ancestors when the gods had started rolling dice. The Leviathan's wake began to churn as massive tentacles rose to the surface behind it, swirling in deceptively huge arcs. As the creature's body began to undulate, waves swept in from the edges, battering the Sangnarok's hull and washing away the few blood hunters who had not finished their climb back into the ship. Anger and concern etched themselves into a stern grimace on the Captain's fair face as she gave the order to cut all lines, freeing the ship from the back of the Leviathan. The ocean surged in, forcing water back under Sangnarok's hull and lifting it rapidly into the air. The bloodhunter ship slid down one massive swell after another at extreme angles, and any sailors not secured to the deck found themselves washed off into the cold briny sea as the entire ship was momentarily submerged. Her harness clipped in and secure, the Captain ignored their alarmed shouts and continued to direct the crew's frantic efforts to extend the Sangnarok's stablizing pontoons. Barely recovering from one watery slope before tilting over and swinging like a pendulum down the next, the Sangnarok nearly capsized with each movement of the demon spawn below. Sangnarok's spark drive had been disabled during the hunt, but roared to life as the blood drums ceased their cadence, fully releasing whatever tenuous grasp might still have existed over the Leviathan's will. Regaining some modicum of control over the Sangnarok's movements as the pontoons locked into place, Captain Shrike ticked through her mental checklist. Normally, looking for clan members who had fallen overboard would be top of the list, but under these circumstances it rated fourth or fifth highest concern at best. Then Fate laughed at her feeble attempts to logically analyze the situation, as a sudden change in the light wrenched her attention away from the ship. Like a dawn that no one had witnessed in human memory, the length of the southern horizon was glowing with an iridescent pale green light, almost as if Hades had opened its gates to consume the world. As the light intensified, Captain Shrike cursed the loss of her kin and directed full power to the propulsion, issuing a course to the helmsman that would open lateral distance from the Leviathan. The light behind them narrowed marginally in scope so that it no longer seemed to span the entire horizon, but the Captain's sharp eyes picked out a more disconcerting feature. The wake of the Leviathan, now rocking their ship, was but a pittance compared to the tidal wave rapidly approaching their ship from the south. The Leviathan, a fearless demon master of the sea, had broken the Sangnarok's blood ritual magic in order to flee this danger. The tidal wave, while potentially devastating to the Sangnarok, was all the more terrifying for what remained unseen. Every hunter knew that a tsunami could visibly lift the water level if it was close to the shore, where the height of displaced water travelling along the ocean bottom became higher than the water's depth. For such an event to occur in the middle of the ocean, either the world itself had finally broken, or some creature of unimaginable size and power had risen from the deep. The Leviathan's departure hinted at the latter, and Captain Shrike felt the grave looming as she ordered the spark drive to a near catastrophic power level. Finally convinced that nothing more could be done to increase their odds of survival, she accepted the roll call from the executive officer. The crew solemnly silent, she struck the bell before calling out the name of each clan member who would not be joining them for the journey home, one by one ritually committing their souls to the deep. Another fifteen minutes passed, the spark drive holding true, before the now brightly luminescent wall of water reached the Leviathan's frantically pulsating tendrils. A moment later a massive serpentine head and neck lifted a thousand or more feet out of the water, its gaping maw exhaling clouds of steam and green fire onto the Leviathan below. The Leviathan's pained roar, a song no human had ever before heard, ended seconds later as it was swallowed whole. In an instant the ocean darkened once more, the monstrous sea serpent leaving only a vortex in its place as it rapidly dove back into the deep. The initial tsunami caused by the serpent's approach subsided, but not before narrowly missing the Sangnarok. The remaining twenty mile long wake it had created raced on, but Captain Shrike kept the ship moving ahead of it until the threat had subsided. Turning towards home, their clan's luck fully expended, Captain Shrike finally took a moment to mourn the loss of her daughters, a tear nearly gracing her eye as she saw to the business of getting her ship back to Tycheros.

    Intro - Chess

    Hey! I’m Chess! I’m really happy that I have the opportunity to apply to become a Full Member here. @MadCast: doublestufforeoyou introduced me to this amazing community after we played a few Among Us games together. I’ve also attended a Social Saturday with @MadCast: Kitty Stark and had a lot of fun playing with her and the other members who attended. I’ve played Among Us with @MadCast: horsedolphin3, @Jay, @MadCast: Qrow, and a bunch of other members a few times, too. I’m really excited to play more games in the future! Time to talk about me! I really enjoy playing a multitude of games. I like social deduction games like Among Us and Town Salem, strategy games like XCOM 2 and Chess, party games like Jackbox and colonist.io, multiplayer games like Don’t Starve Together and Stardew Valley, and mobile games like Genshin Impact and Identity V. My current favorite games to play are Among Us and XCOM 2, but I’m always open to playing new games. I also really like anime- my current favorite is Astra Lost in Space, which is Among Us but in anime form (also has great intersex representation). I really like cats, and when I have free time I foster kittens from non-profit organizations so expect kitten photos. I can’t wait to make new friends and hang out with the friends that I have already made, and I’m really thankful that I’ve been given the opportunity to join this amazing and welcoming community!

    I used to play competitive chess too when I was younger! I don't have a set online mode of playing chess, so if you have any suggestions I would love to possibly play with you!

    Intro - Chess

    Welcome! I haven't played much chess in the past two decades, just the odd game here and there, but I did successfully play competitive chess when I was very young (ie. age 7-10 years old). What platform or App do you use for online chess?

    Hey @MadCast: Angelix, thank you for the post! Please do let me know how it goes with regard to the core books as I only have them in hardcopies/PDFs and would be interested in knowing there integration with the VTT. I think the flow was off as I had part of an agenda penned whereas when I took @MadCast: horsedolphin3through it organically it felt smoother. Will rejig the agenda so it makes more sense when setting up tokens, dynamic lighting etc

    Overall the virus has not extremely changed my day-to-day life; I still work on art commissions and do work-from-home jobs like data entry or extensive surveys. I find the customer service genre of work to be very emotionally exhausting, and there isn't much else available in this area. I do have more anxiety for my loved ones, as my mother works in healthcare with elderly veterans and my husband works retail and is exposed to many careless customers. The one benefit of living in such a small town is that almost no cases have popped up and it doesn't spread very quickly. I'm very lucky to have my husband and immediate family close by so that if anyone did get sick I would be able to assist them. I haven't really struggled with loneliness as many others have had to during this pandemic, which keans I have a bit more energy to socialize online. I am always available to talk to and do my best to keep things positive and motivating. Even when I feel burnt out I enjoy helping others, especially here in MadCast. Thank you for taking the time to share your struggles Qrow. I don't think I would be able to focus on schoolwork at all in your situation and you deserve a good pat on the back for your dedication.

    so, I will do my best to address this paragraph by paragraph, please take no offence if I misunderstand you, @MadCast: Angelix, I assure you in all good will any misunderstandings are not in bad faith, simply that I am a drunk and miss shit sometimes. my issue with the paragraph also stems into why I would prefer a moneyless society. there used to be limits, at least here there did, I am no expert on America. then rich cunts lobbied the career, and the incidental, politicians, and suddenly the tax margins, they shifted a bit, then a bit more, then a bit more under pressure of lobbyists, and before you know it, Bezos had this much wealth https://mkorostoff.github.io/1-pixel-wealth/. Regarding the paragraph upon celebrity, I have nothing to disagree with you upon that subject except maybe the origin of celebrity if I understood your correctly, if not, I apologize. I believe celebrity derives from capital and tangential bourgeoise industries, rather than the other way around. relevant to the continuation paragraph about cults of personality especially in politics, I stand in the firm belief that history is not driven by individuals, but by groups, and with the in mind, any sufficiently charismatic person can take the lead of a sufficiently charged group, for good or ill, and with that said, I don't believe that people who support the likes of Trump, or Oswald Mosley, or Franco, are inherently bad or evil, just misinformed, and badly educated. as well, regarding the "its just politics" line, FUCK THOSE PEOPLE, politics are vastly important, even to one such as myself that abhors our current shammy "representative democracy" (or republic or other system depending upon where one resides). I like to think, as does everybody else I am quite sure) that I am not a hypocrite. I do quite firmly believe that, for example in the current scandal going through the Us government of Trump and the Senate trying to appoint a justice with about two months remaining in the term when they complained when Obama tried with 11 months left, I would oppose both appointments as unjustly hierarchical and anti-proletarian. With the final statement in mind, I am of the firm belief that the time of waiting for a disaster of significant even has long passed us. I have been through my fair of the shit, and seen some stuff that disguised and revolted me, helped turn me into an anarchist amoung other things, by that I mean that we can't wait for the outcome of some global catastrophe to finish, if we do, we are finished. We need to work and comparing, by any mean necessary, ahead of the collapse, I thoroughly believe things need to be changed ASAP, if we wait, the earth and everything on it dies a horrible death, and no offence intended, but approaching things from a completely emotionless and entirely logical view is quite a large part of the problem, it stifles the response in my opinion. OUTRAGE AND INDIGNATIONS ARE, to me, a very valid and logical response to the shit going on in the world right now.

    The film? I thought the film largely replaced actual anarchist theory and praxis with this weird and horrid combination of a conflict between neo-liberalist and neo-conservative US elements, with a sprinkling of what most of the world sees us anarchists as, terrorists and nothing else, we in the anarchist community refer to that misconception as anarcho-terrorism. when such elements are employed in the service of actual anarchist cause we call this propaganda by deed, but this. as well as context below bears a caveat, the most important and pressing issue I have with the film mostly, but even with the graphic novel to a very limited extent, no Anarcho-Communist I know, either myself or my associates, would advocate to go on a killing spree like V does simply to make a point, most form of anarchism, (fuck "anarcho-capitalism" that shit is bullshit) are primarily about communal mutual aid and mutual organization for the overthrow of capitalism and betterment of all mankind. that being said, we anarchists have disagreements with the other communist ideologies, like the MELTS, the MLs, the Leninists, the Maoists, the Stalinists, ect. but all traditional communist ideologies end in the same place, the withering of the state to a time without any government or bureaucracy, we anarchists simply think it is best to skip the dictatorship of the proletariat and most statist natures. The second major caveat I will add to this is that even if it is a very bad and misunderstood interpretation of anarchism, it might induce some people to look up actual anarchism which is not a bad thing. (given the context of the question, I am avoiding in substance all question of the LGBTQ nature, but as an asexual chap myself, it bears fruit, simply of a different context) The graphic novel on the other hand, Alan Moore is a grand old lad. if you mean what do I think of it cinematically, I think of it as a solid, if unremarkable film, the acting was good but not great, the same of the special effects and story, but I assume you ask the question dur to the anarchist context, no? If you have a few minutes and are interested further, this is a really good video interpretation I have sent to people before, if anyone is interested. (I myself am not an anarcho-pacifist, I believe that to be conciliatory to capital and counter-revolutionary, as well, I am decidedly anti-electoral as I believe to good faith participation in neo-liberal and neo-conservative politics serves only to prolong the suffering of most of the worlds peoples)

    Celebrating Pride

    Just a friendly reminder: Celebrating Pride month is giving to queer not selling to queer. Creating products with rainbows on it for queer and trans people to buy isn't celebrating pride month.
