2023.05.29 23:16 GloriousMistakes Neighbor wants to share the cost of fence between our property line but are we obligated if the new fence was moved completely inside his property and it looks like they are not attaching it to our fence afterall
The fence on our shared property line fell about 18 months ago and two weeks ago we got a quote to rebuild it for $3400. A week later our neighbor came over and said he was getting a whole new fence (from the guy that gave us a quote) and asked to share the cost of the side that is on the property line. my husband verbally agreed but said we didn't have the funds as we just had a baby and one of our dogs is on cancer treatments. He said we would have to make payments if it was going up soon.
A couple days ago the builder comes over and says the cost for that side of the fence is now $4000 and we owe him $2000. He said the additional cost was due to our neighbors picking out a more expensive material. The builder also said it would connect to our fence that's still standing (the only part that fell was the shared side). He said he was willing to take payments but we needed to talk to him about what we could afford.
Three days ago, without any notice to us, they started putting up this fence. They are actually currently in our yard putting up the shared side as I'm writing this. We noticed the fence is no longer on our shared property line. They moved it in about three inches so it's totally on his property. There is also nothing that shows it's going to be connected to our fence and since it's moved there is a gap where it meets our fence. We asked the neighbor today (who is out there building it with the crew) if it would be connected to our fence and he said he thought it would be. And basically the conversation was over. He just got back to working.
Now my husband says he is going to have to talk to the builder to verify if it will be connected to our fence because our neighbor won't give us straight answers even as he is part of the crew building it. We don't really trust our neighbor. When the fence fell 18 months ago he came over and asked if we wanted to buy the wood from him so we could hire someone to just put it up again. I thought it was fishy because when we bought the house, it was specifically mentioned to us it was a shared fence. I couldn't understand why we would have to buy the wood from him. And he didn't even up of the fence. It was put up by both of the previous owners for his house and mine.
Before we pay anything, what kind of documentation should I get to show we both own this fence this time? I don't want another situation to arise if the fence falls where he says its all his wood. When we said we wouldn't pay it, because we assumed it was shared, he sold it and had it hauled away before we could put it back up. He kept all of the money from the sale. We don't even know what he got for it.
And are we even obligated to pay since it's no longer on our property line? I don't want to be a bad neighbor but we honestly just don't have the money right now. It's why it isn't already fixed. The guy putting it up hasn't given us any invoice or documentation on the fence. But I imagine he is going to aquire soon how we are going to pay our half. I feel like we are being scammed yet again by the guy but my husband tells me to quit being sceptical about everyone.
We are in South Dakota and the only thing I can find for laws is relating to cattle owners. We don't own any livestock and we are in a city limit.

2023.05.29 23:00 Bersko05 I got HER'd!
I (36 mtf) got HER'd today! At a yard sale, one of the people running it said to her husband "oh look at her shirt. It's a D20." I was not looking particularly fem and was not trying to pass, just being myself wearing jeans (from the women's section), a purple D20 tshirt (women's cut), my head covering and a cardigan. Needless to say I was tickled pink 💜🏳️⚧️. I don't try to pass, I've been on HRT for 9 months and my body below my neck is looking more femme but I still struggle with coarse beard hair and a receding hairline and haven't started voice training (which I totally plan on doing... any day now...)

2023.05.29 22:05 Loud_Egg5179 Car Title Issues in Ky. Need Advice
Need some advice. Tried contacting 3 attorneys, but no responses.
A neighbor had their house foreclosed on. There was a contractor removing all of the property that was left, including 2 vehicles. He had a contract stating he was authorized to remove all items. One vehicle they had already busted the steering and removed the catalytic converter. The other ran and drove, but needed work. I bought both of the vehicles with an attestation from the contractor on the transaction. They were on their way to the scrap yard. Cars had no titles.
I have since followed the below steps, which is the process to obtain a clear vehicle title in ky.
Sued the county clerk for a clear title with attestations provided. Judge asked that I have papers served to the person listed on the vehicle registration. I did that, but papers were served to the address on his registration (where he no longer lives) and someone else signed for them. Went back to court and judge said I need to locate the previous owner. I have no way of doing that. He has moved, and could ha e even passed away by now. This has been going on for a year.
Not sure what else to do. At this point, I just want the cars out of my driveway. I asked the county clerk if I could surrender them to police impound, but the clerk said I need to work with an attorney.
Any guidance at all in what options to explore next would be greatly appreciated!!

2023.05.29 20:32 SirJoseppi My plan so far (WA State)
Is there any sort of pre filing checklist on here that we should follow before filing? Just curious. Here is my plan so far.
Please be brutally honest on anything I should change/revise/add/remove/etc.
Brief summary...42 yrs old, STBX is 38. We have 2 young kids, ages 3 and 1. They turn 4 and 2 this July. Washington State (Snohomish County). Married in 2019.
Housing. Do not move out. I understand the logic behind this. We currently live in a rental house that my STBX's parents own (we live right next door to them). There is no formal rental agreement in place. I understand that this is still considered a marital residence and by law I would not need to move out unless ordered by a court....however, let's say when I do file, that her brother and dad (and likely uncle that lives 30 seconds away) would come over and threaten me if I refuse to leave. Do I call the police at that point? Would her parents owning the house and not having a rental agreement in place sway the police to say hey, you need to leave? Because I am pretty confident that this is how it would go down. Update I asked this during a consultation with a divorce attorney and was told that they can legally evict me since there is no formal rental agreement in place. However, I also reached out to an eviction law/services place, and was told that since because there is no rental agreement in place, that I would not be a tenant, and you have to be a tenant to be formally evicted. They said that the in laws could take me to court but it would be pretty lengthy and expensive. And as I was advised on here previously, any court order that would have me leave I would respond with by filing an injunction. Basically I intend to do everything in my power to NOT move out of the house.
Finances. Discussed this too during attorney consultation. Bulk of our funds are in a joint savings account (around $485k. This includes around $300k profit from the sale of my condo and around $100k profit from the sale of her house). Was told since the funds are co-mingled in a joint account that the account will likely (though not necessarily) be split 50/50. In hindsight this was a huge mistake on my part, but it is what it is at this point. My plan is to purchase a house using a down payment consisting of my half of these funds along with an additional $50k pulled from my 401k (the max I'm allowed to withdraw since divorce does not qualify as a "hardship" according to T Rowe Price) and additional funds (around $40k I have in an IRA I inherited from my Dad when he passed that she is not entitled to). Alimony/spousal support. Right now she makes close to what I make (a little less as I just got a 5% raise at work). This topic as well was discussed during my consultation, and I was advised that there is a strong possibility that since we both work and make close to the same amount and have only been married since 2019, that any alimony would be minimal and likely not last more than a year if that. I consider this a small victory but feel free to tell me if I'm being misinformed here. PS...I have opened up my own solo account to move funds over when the time comes right before I file.
Belongings. I've taken photos of everything in the house and made a written inventory. How would I go about determining the cash value and replacement costs? Would an appraiser do this? Hiring one before I file would be the best plan I assume?
Parenting/Journal. My boys are my world but I've made an extra effort to spend as much time with them as I can lately, be as actively involved and try to lead in terms of parenting. I've been keeping a journal for months to demonstrate being SuperDad (again my boys are very little so sports, school drop offs/pickups, extra curricular stuff hasn't factored in yet, although my oldest is in soccer once a week, so I definitely go to that every time). Will be plotting this all to a chart soon and have it boiled down to the following topics: Meals/food, Safety, Play, Teaching/Encouragement/Discipline, Day to Day. Open to suggestions here though if anyone feels I should change this. I tried checking a couple months back for a good parenting class to take but have not found one that I want to commit to yet (admittedly I've been slacking on this). In terms of child support, I have not yet filled out the detailed worksheet as I need to determine what the STBX's gross income is, but using the quick calculator based on the fortress.wa.gov website, it works out to about $1200/month, though I want to pad in a bit more just incase so will be ear marking $1400/month as mentioned earlier.
Witnesses. I have no family in the area, which definitely isn't helping in coming up with witnesses to vouch on my behalf. I do have some friends that I've known for years (pre-marriage) that are married and have kids of their own that I plan on asking to help with this however, as we've had play dates, birthday parties etc where they have seen me with my kids. My oldest is in pre school, and I know some of the other parents there and will be asking them as well, though they are good friends with the STBX, so I won't be able to count on their support, but no harm in asking.
Safety/CYA. I have a DAR that I run 24/7, although the battery is starting to lose strength so I'll be buying a backup recorder just in case I run into any issues where I'm around the wife and one of them stops working. My .357 handgun is at my friends house to hang on to, as I've read on here it's NOT a good idea to keep that in the house when she could make bogus claims against me involving that.
This is where I'm at so far. Anything glaring that I am missing and should be doing (or not doing?)
Any and all advice/suggestions are appreciated.

Grace's recollections of the melodious month of May
By Grace Samuelson
May is really a melodious month. Makes you feel like singing. The snow (except for occasional flurries) is gone; tulips and daffodils come out of hiding, buds on the trees are opening. Birds sing as they build nests. The winds have a melody, too, from roaring tempo sounds to whispering zephers. Spring rains tap out patty-cake lullabies on the roof, or swish and swing with disco beat. Even the dreary, stay-inside days, when we sort over things for the annual "Clean-up" time finds us warbling old time melodies.
The big thing for many of us, while we were growing up in the early 1900's was the May Day surprise. We made little construction paper baskets, at school or at home, and the last day of April we went gathering wild flowers (if we could find any that early). Then early May Day morning we filled the baskets. If no wild flowers were to be found, we made crepe paper roses. We hung the baskets over the door knob of our best friend's house. Some of the schools had May-pole dances, and one memorable year I had the thrill of going down to Lawrence college with Mr. and Mrs. George Washburn for their May Day festivities. Vera was attending Lawrence then and I remember when she introduced me to her friends, they seemed surprised that my hair was blond and her's so dark. She said; "There are four of us girls, and we each have hair a different color: mine dark brown, Verna's light brown, Grace's blond, and Marian's red." I was a high school sophomore then, and felt very grown-up, especially as the Washburns stopped at a restaurant on the way home. We seldom had a chance to eat out.
Now May 1 is known as Law Day; also the day the Russians and other militaristic nations demonstrate their show of force and power. (I wonder what Brezhnev would do with a May basket, or watch a May-pole dance?)
Back then we made plans for observing Mother's Day. I was 10 when President Wilson signed a resolution establishing the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. Anna Jarvis was the originator of the idea, and she worked hard to obtain that resolution. In later years she became a bitter woman, because she said that it was turned into a day for profit for merchants instead of merely honoring mothers. The first Mother's Day I remember was simply observed by wearing a pink carnation to church if your mother was living, or a white one if she wasn't. Then, greeting cards, gifts of candy and flowers were suggested. Later, commercialism took hold and advertisements for "gifts for Mother" ranged from perfume and candy to luxury items. Those early Mother's Days, I recall, we embroidered monograms on hankies, and proudly brought home the white carnation Mama would wear next day to church. The minister always preached a sermon about motherhood. We had a record for the Victrola (by Galli Curci, I believe) "Songs My Mother Taught Me," and someone always sang "Mother Machree." When people began having radios in their homes lovely and sentimental programs filled the airwaves. And, from the little pansy plants in paper cups that the children in Sunday school classes brought home to Mom, to elaborate presents and taking mother out to eat on "her" day, Mother was really special. Every greeting card is cherished, especially the hand colored ones made in school or at home. The legacy my own Mother left that I treasure most was the little slips of paper I found in her Bible: memorandums, quotes of poetry, parts of letters from her daughters expressing love, favorite bible verses, a lock of each daughter's hair. Every one expressed to me the real "Tollie": my mother. Mother and daughter banquets through the years bring memories, too, and I recall the year Mother, dressed as a pioneer mother, related details of her own pioneer upbringing, and read her tribute to her mother.
Housecleaning was usually all done by that time of the year; the house was soap, water, and ammonia-clean. We were through with beating the rugs with the heavy wire carpet beater, lugging the aired clothes back upstairs to hang in the well-scrubbed closets. Now we were set to raking the lawn, sprouting the old potatoes in the cellar; carrying up the stored vegetables too-far gone to be used. A farmer came to plow all the gardens in our neighborhood, and we raked and smoothed, and helped plant leaf lettuce, radishes, and Papa's favorite, pepper cress. When we had the chance we'd hike out to the big creek and watch boys spearing suckers. The nicest part about living in town was that we were so close to the country. We kept a lookout for the meadowlarks, bluebirds, bob-o-links, thrush, and orioles.
The 17th of May meant Norwegian Independence Day to many of our neighbors; to us it was Marian's birthday, and we always felt that "good luck" played a part in that. We three small girls were out in the yard with Mama when I found a four-leaf-clover. Mama told me to make a wish, and put the leaf in the bible. I wished for a baby, and, sure enough, one morning when we got up we were told that Dr. Kreutzer had brought us a baby sister in his little black bag! We were so excited, and I remember that Mama got out of bed one evening shortly after that to see Haley's comet from the west bedroom window. I was six, and I remember seeing that; its long tail streaming across the western sky.
The big question at this time of every year was whether we'd have frost when the cherry blossoms were open. The year Marian was born, I remember hearing the Stanton Minors and Alex Johnsons talking about the early bloom. Most years we could expect blossoms around Memorial Day. Whether the blossoms came early or late, they were always breath-taking. We had small orchards all around our Poplar st. home at that time, but always everyone made an attempt to ride out in the country to see the lovely expanse of miles of white blossoms, and just a little later, the beautiful pink and white of the apple blossoms. You could live all your life in Door County and never lose the thrill of that glorious promise.
Memorial Day was approaching, and in all the years I was in grade school I can remember getting ready for that big day. We called it Decoration Day, and assembled at the school, our bouquets of violets, spring beauties, mayflowers and trilliums, (with some lilac branches if they were open) wrapped in damp newspaper to keep them from wilting. We marched in a body down to Bayside cemetery, where we set flags on the old soldiers' graves, and decorated them with the flowers we'd gone picking after school the day before. There was always a program, with Spanish American war veterans, and a few Civil War veterans who were left. They always rode in one of the automobiles. We thought we had an individual part of the program, as we claimed "Grandpa" Grandy, who lived across the street from us, with his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Wil Maples. We loved to sit on their porch steps and hear him relate stories of his part in that war. He was a Cavalryman; once his horse was shot right from under him in battle. There were always speeches: Judge Graass, Lifwyer Wagner, and other good orators. And Memorial Day always meant the first picnic day of the year, with the potato salad, boiled ham sandwiches, Mama's burnt leather cake, and, of course, homemade ice cream.
It was the time of year for dandelion greens, wilted with a hot vinegar and bacon dressing, or just doused with cider vinegar from Papa's cut-glass vinegar cruet that was always on the table, near his place. Some years there were early radishes and onions, and we snitched the tender stems of the rhubarb plants even before Mama could get enough to make one of her luscious pies. We hunted asparagus spears (sparrow-grass, some called it) growing wild in the fields, spring onions and baby radishes from the garden, and looked forward to the 4th, when strawberries would be ripe. The mason jars on the fruit cellar shelves were thinning out now, though there was still some sauce, and pickles left. Now that housecleaning days with its rush and labor were over, there wasn't the need for one-dish meals, except on wash-days, or ironing days. Before we got electricity in the house, we used sad-irons for Tuesday's ironing. Once, when I wanted to iron my favorite doll's dress, I put my doll's sad-iron right on the coals to heat. First thing I knew, it was red hot, and Mama told me I'd ruined the iron — the temper. I realized that I had to watch my own temper, but I had no idea that an iron had one!
There is something about visiting cemeteries at this time of year that harks back to old customs; families fixing up the graves of loved ones; planting flowers and carrying water for them to grow. There are many beautiful little cemeteries (64 in all, I believe) in the county. Now, most of them have perpetual care, but there are still neglected plots with sunken graves, and mossy headstones. What used to be the Samuelson family cemetery, later turned over to the township, is still a lovely restful place to me. When we were in the restaurant, I used to walk over there almost every morning; there was a tranquility there. We always put a new flag on the grave of Job Sweet, the Civil War soldier buried there decades ago.
I asked Mrs. Ida Johnson if they did anything special in Sweden, where she grew up, to observe Memorial Day. She said the last Sunday in May was always the day all the families put flowers on the graves — beautiful white blossoms which grew all around, although they also had mayflowers, and spring beauties, and violets. Sweden was a peaceful country, so there was no need of commemorence of soldier dead. But, she said, in November of every year, the families put candles in metal lanterns on every grave, a symbol of the Light everlasting.
Nowadays, when Memorial Day has been moved to Monday, to extend a weekend,
we no longer observe the day as we used to. On the real date — the 30th — the Veterans will gather in uniform; sound taps, and hear a few words of tribute. And Memorial Day, and May, will have rendered the spring overture. We remember. https://archive.co.door.wi.us/jsp/RcWebImageViewer.jsp?doc_id=1e8fc801-90a4-4104-8e86-19a1ea0947dc/wsbd0000/20170120/00000934&pg_seq=18

Welcome to Part 17 of The Wild Beyond the Witchlight: Reimagined
, an expansion and alternative take on the The Wild Beyond the Witchlight
campaign. Previous entries:
If you'd prefer to read with the full formatting, or check out some of my older content, please head on over to my blog at IndieRex.com
. Foreword: This post contains spoilers for The Wild Beyond the Witchlight
This trip through the mountains is certainly quite a hike! Luckily Motherhorn is just over the distance, and from there - Arctis Tor, the Winter Palace. Hopefully you've packed your costume jewelry and memorized your lines, because today we'll be taking a tour through Endelyn's amphitheater of horrors.
The Path to Motherhorn Art by tzlynart
When the players exit the Brigganock mine they will be back outside in the Shimmerstorm Mountains - now not far from Motherhorn. This is a good time to read the description from the book, though hold the staircase and balloon pieces for now until the party actually reaches it later. This will position Motherhorn as the way in to the palace.
Looming in the distance is an ominous gray citadel hewn out of the mountaintop. The path leading to it is winding and precipitous. Wind swirls around its towers, and ravens cluster and caw in its granite nooks. A crooked finger of lightning strikes a metal rod protruding from the topmost spire, and the sound of applause drifts over the citadel’s battlements. Awakened Giant Goats
While Motherhorn is just over the ridge it's about an hour's trek still. On this path is the perfect time for some furry friends to make their appearance. You can play out this event as written in the book though I have an alternative description to set-up the scene below.
As you make your way up the cold, snowy mountain trail, you suddenly sense that you are being watched. You turn to see three giant goats standing a few yards away, their silvery-gray fur ruffled by the mountain wind. Their wizened faces are fixed on you, their golden, hourglass-shaped pupils observing you closely. Lightning Rods
The path to the amphitheater is also a good time for the party to pass by some of the lightning rods of Yon.
In the distance you see a towering structure glimmer in the dark as it's struck by a bolt of lightning and then seemingly absorbs its energies. The tower stands 30 feet high and is topped with a 10-foot-diameter crescent moon made of gleaming copper. You wonder what kind of electricity this rod must harness in order to function given the storms that rage through these mountains.
If a player chooses to climb one of the rods I feel as if it's more fun to ask for a check. Some options include: - DC 14 Strength (Athletics) or Dexterity (Acrobatics) check (your choice) to climb - DC 14 Wisdom saving throw as a thunder cracks overhead to not lose balance
If your players have a Lightning-Catching Bottle
they can use the rod to fill the bottle in the same manner that they could charge their weapons.
When the players arrive read the following and the balloon description from the book. If the party defeated Charm in The Fields of Spring then the balloon will not be here and you can skip that portion.
The mountain path ends at a spiral staircase that climbs sixty feet to a balcony made of weathered gray stone. You have reached Motherhorn.
As described, if Gleam is with the characters, she will warn them of Endelyn. As mentioned last time as well, I highly recommend taking the party through the play though of course this depends on your table!
In this section I will only call out changes (otherwise run the book as is). Unlike the book, if Bavlorna or Skabatha fled they did not escape here. One general change I would recommend is to replace about half of the darklings in Motherhorn to use the greater darkling
stat block from Part XI
. A Tragedy in the Making https://preview.redd.it/v20r2a3wzs2b1.png?width=1023&format=png&auto=webp&s=343d56c5cd6127a508f69dbae9b97946d277af14
I'm going to cover the play at the outset as having this info will help inform how you run Motherhorn (and also might mean a bit of a railroad at the beginning for your players if you move them right into the play). As mentioned before, the play is a ton of fun so definitely would suggest pushing your players this way if you think they'd be open to it.
As per the book the party will be expected to put on a play if they want to have an audience with Endelyn in area M18. No invitations or fliers should be needed here. Unlike the book though, Endelyn doesn't have their Lost Things, but does have a way to get them to Arctis Tor, The Winter Palace, which is where their Lost Things are.
Also like the book, if the characters decline to perform a play for her, Endelyn demands that they leave at once, ordering her darklings to attack characters who refuse to do so. Preparing for the Play
The party should meet with Stagefright as written to get prepared for the play, but after the initial introduction we will be adjusting things significantly. In terms of how to run the play though there are a lot of options. I've laid out my own suggestion below (with inspiration from the outline by u/DearEdison
) , but some others to consider are:
Ready? Let's break a leg! No Love Lost, The Tragic Love Affair of Iggwilv and Graz'zt
For my take on the play, the characters will be running a script called No Love Lost, The Tragic Love Affair of Iggwilv and Graz'zt
, which is intended to better tie into the overall story. You may remember Graz'zt from Nib's Cave in Part XIII
, and of course Iggwilv needs no introduction.
After the intro with Stagefright it's time to assign players their roles - either through rolling or choice, but there should be no doubles. As I had 5 players there are 6 roles (one for each of them and one for Charmay) - feel free to adjust depending on your number of players. Charmay also doesn't need to participate though.
|d6 ||Performer Roles |
|1 ||Zagig Yragerne, an archmage and Iggwilv's first master. |
|2 ||Iggwilv, a powerful raven-haired archmage from Oerth Note: Iggwilv is, of course, another name for Tasha the Witch Queen - a fact that is not known by anyone in Motherhorn so do not reveal this |
|3 ||Graz'zt, a powerful demon lord sometimes known as the The Dark Prince or Prince of Pleasure for his… erotic tastes |
|4 ||Raxivort, a Xvart and Graz'zt's treasurer |
|5 ||Tenser The Blue Archmage, a member of the Circle of Eight |
|6 ||Mordenkainen the Mage, one of the most powerful wizards that has ever lived and founder of the Circle of Eight |
Once role selection is done, Stagefright should guide the players to M4a to choose their costumes, props, and/or request reasonable ones, and then M11 to meet with Charmay. If Charmay will have a role, Stagefright will explain as much. Otherwise she will just handle the play intro and outro. Before departing he will give the characters 30 minutes until curtains up (this feels better than 10 minutes so they have a chance to talk with Charmay, though I recommend a 5 minute warning).
|d6 ||Costumes |
|1 ||Intricate noble's attire |
|2 ||Black robes and a witch's hat |
|3 ||Dark leather armor adorned with spikes and skulls |
|4 ||Simple leather armor with a scarlet kilt |
|5 ||Grey, high-collared robes |
|6 ||A blue patterned vest |
Our version of the play covers the rough and tumble relationship between Iggwilv and Graz'zt Performing the Play
|d6 ||Props |
|1 ||An elven amulet |

|3 ||A set of demon horns |
|4 ||A long ledger of accounts |
|5 ||A brass goblet |
|6 ||A stick on mustache and goatee; a bald cap |
Once time is up, Stagefright will return to bring the players to the stage and inquire if their troupe has a name, while Endelyn, the darklings, and the goblins watch. I had the play take place on the Grand Opera House map (Romeo Juliet version)
by Czepuku, but anything will work.
Charmay will open the play with a monologue to set the scene, and then it will operate as follows:
Many bards consider it the greatest love story the multiverse has ever known, for it reveals the unsettling foundations of desire. It speaks to the dark origins of love and our desire to possess that which is beyond possession. As we relate to you the tale of Iggwilv and Graz’zt, let your mind wander. Reflect on the love that possesses you and ponder what your future holds.
I present to you "No Love Lost - The Tragic Love Affair of Iggwilv and Graz'zt" by the [insert troupe name given to Stagefright].
- The characters should act one at a time, as if in initiative order (but instead use the order from the Roles table above). If a role has no lines for a specific round they simply wait in the wings
- At the beginning of each "round", change the backdrop scene on stage as per the table below. The play takes place over 6 rounds
- On each player's turn:
- Stagefright feeds the player a line they must use (see the lines below), and then they can add any additional lines or flavor they'd like
- If online you can use Roll20 macro to make this easier
- As with a normal turn a player can use an action, bonus action, etc. but don't have to
- Dialogue is considered a free action
- Common actions will likely be a performance check, skill check, etc.
- As per the book, characters can freely move around the stage, use props, and enter and exit scenes as they wish
- Other players can join in but can't interrupt lines
- Scoring: As Endelyn watches she will be mentally scoring them for their performance
- Positive point for a character using their line correctly
- Positive point for a successful check or use of a spell/ability to enhance their performance
- Negative point for loitering (make liberal use of the fool's scepter!)
- Negative point for interruptions
- Negative point for flubbing their line or not using it
- Once all the lines are complete, Charmay will give a final outro as well: "In the end Graz’zt and Iggwilv had come to understand that they loved nothing more than hating each other, and they hated nothing more than loving each other"
- At the end the actors should gather for a bow
- Tally the points. As long as the group has more positive points then negative then the play will be followed by cheers, and as per book the party will be invited to M18 for negotiations with Endelyn

Even the great Mordekainen is befuddled by Tasha M2. Amphitheater
Rather than roll on the tragedies table I would select #7. This directly ties into the notes we left at Loomlurch where Tasha has tricked Endelyn into believing Bavlorna is plotting against her. M7. Oracular Library
In the black book you need to remove the portion of text below as no such treachery has taken place in the reimagining and it's also a bit too on the nose on revealing Zybilna's identity.
The sweet treachery we three have wrought— Would Iggwilv help us? Ha! I think not. M11. Stage Workshop
Two immediate changes to make in the workshop are that there is no unicorn horn here as usual, and Golmo is also not here (he is instead imprisoned in Arctis Tor for your reference).
We will also be changing almost everything that Skylla shares with the characters (though the description itself of her and her background is all still accurate). In particular we're removing all of the mentions of Iggwilv (a bit too early for the big reveal!), and of course the piece about the cauldron is not true in the reimagining.
She will boastfully share the following information:
https://preview.redd.it/9gzm5f542t2b1.png?width=442&format=png&auto=webp&s=8bca65eef21ab561ca1b7b5dbef4630b14b8bc5c M13. Worker Cells
- After the carnival the group of them - Kelek, Mell, Zarak, Zargash, and herself were transported to the Feywild. They've been here for about 20 years, though some - like Kelek, their leader, have had some aftereffects and aged more rapidly (not to mention time is strange in the Feywild). To survive they took on odd jobs and eventually became full on mercenaries for hire and renamed themselves The League of Malevolence after their old name at school
- While they've worked together for their mutual benefit, they're each rather selfish and often pursue their own interests
- The League was most recently employed by Zybilna, a powerful sorceress and advisor to Queen Mab. She tasked them with hunting down Valor’s Call, some sort of adventuring party, whom they defeated about a month back but the group ran away by some sort of teleportation magic.
- While the rest of the league is still in Zybilna's employ hunting down the escaped members of Valor's Call, she decided to stay in Yon and take up her passion - acting!
If the party freed Harry from the Green Keep he is here to rescue his sister Kizz, who traveled to Yon before the barrier came up. M16. Darkling Balloon Dock
This room will be empty and no balloon present if the players killed Charm, Trinket, and Bauble in the Fields of Spring. You may choose to have different darklings here though if you want to offer their wares still.
If they are here, the darklings will know all of the knowledge from the Wayward Pool article (Part XI
). If the party is still on friendly terms with Charm then the darklings will still offer their wares for sales (see the Traveling Wagons in Vale Crossing for details - Part X
If the party knew of Charm's plot to kill Lamorna and did nothing to stop it you may potentially want to have Charm be in possession of Lamorna's horn, with a plan to give it to Endelyn (who would like it as a present for Queen Mab). M17. Prison
When speaking with Glister, make the following changes:
M18. Audience Chamber
- When referring to the belfry, she instead references it as the fastest way to the Winter Palace (as opposed to the Palace of Heart's Desire)
- Ignore the portion about the Fey Beacons. To make things simple, the sisters just need to escape and then they can track down the carnival on their own.
- When discussing plans, an alternative option can be raised. It is known that Endelyn grants audiences with performers she likes. The party may be able to convince her to let Glister go in such a circumstance
When the party is granted an audience with Endelyn (such as after performing a play), we will make some adjustments to the exchange.
- When bargaining, the key thing Endelyn has to offer is an invitation for the party to a ball happening at the Winter Palace, as well as transportation there using the cranes in the belfry. While Motherhorn and the palace are technically connected - there is no direct passageway between them.
- As per the book she will accept shadows or gloam in exchange (though there's no way to get back to Downfall so the party will have needed to have snatched Gloam already)
- Other options to potentially include: Ridding her of Charmay or the play performance being enough on its own if it was impressive
- If Endelyn is defeated in battle, she will also offer to provide the party invitations and travel to the palace in exchange for her life
- If it does come down to that, I highly recommend the alternative stat block developed by Phaerlax. She would also never fight alone if she can help it and would ensure she has shadows and/or darklings to aid her
- If she's defeated she will flee like in the book, but not to the palace
- If the party's performance at the play was at least somewhat good, she will also likely offer for them to stay in Motherhorn as long as they like - especially if they will continue to perform for her
- If the party has their fates told (highly recommend!), then add the following tidbit below after the description in the book. This is a great opportunity for you to foreshadow any plot lines you might have going on for individual party members in your group and then you can throw the "unhappy ending" ones in as humorous potential alternative futures if you want. I'll include some below as examples.
The hag cackles gleefully as she begins to chant, gusts of wind raging fiercely around her. The scent of brimstone and burning herbs fills the air, mixing with the sound of thunder that rolls overhead. Her eyes fix themselves on you as a strike of lightning illuminates her grotesque form and the puppets move. Fates
"I see many paths…both past and present."
The following are general ones that will apply given upcoming events so feel free to use them! More details to come in the articles on the Winter Palace.
- I see a murder laid at your feet (A reference to the future murder of Lord Albert Frostwood of the Winter Court)
- I see a dire threat looming over the Winter Court (A reference to Zybilna's plot against the court)
- I see a wizard lost in time who can give you answers (A reference to Luca Oxley)
And these are just some examples from my group that likely don't apply to yours - just as inspiration:
An invitation to the ball at the Winter's Palace is exactly what the party needs to continue their quest for their Lost Things M20. Paper Birds and Hidden Belfry The Letter
- I see a man in black armor - as long as you are near him your life is in danger
- I see illness in your past - those closest to you consumed by malady
- I see a boy and a bear, cold and lonely. To rescue him you must face giants
- I see an arrow that struck true, a broken man bent on revenge
- I see a difficult choice - between a mask and many eyes
- I see you swimming in a court of stars, I see a vortex of wind behind a pair of crossed scimitars
We will be changing the letters here to the following:
Mummy’s little spies continue to reveal that Bavlorna is conspiring to betray us. But fear not. Her plots will not succeed. What’s important is that the Orrery remain safe. Let me know how you wish to proceed.
Your beloved sister, End
As a result of Tasha's machinations - Endelyn is still of the belief that Bavlorna is plotting against her, not realizing Tasha has played the same trick on every sister.
I have written a new play titled The Cassalanter Catastrophe. It’s a tragic tale inspired by real-life misfortune that I think you might enjoy. You and the other members of the League of Malevolence are invited to Motherhorn to watch a live performance. Your colleague, Skylla, has been my guest for some time, but I’m afraid she has worn out her welcome. In exchange for my generosity, I’m hoping you can take her off my hands.
Until our next meeting, Endelyn
Endelyn has tired of Skylla but can't kill her or otherwise get rid of her like her other actors given Skylla's strength and not wanting to anger the Winter Court in any way. While I removed Alagarthas I think it's fine to keep the title or perhaps even change it to something relevant to a player of yours (as I did above)? Bottled Lightning
I would up the damage here to 4d6. Hidden Belfry
Instead of traveling to the Palace of Heart's Desire, these cranes will take the players to the entrance of Arctis Tor which we will cover in our next article. You may want to avoid allowing players to use this without an invitation from Endelyn (either freely given or forced) as it likely means they're skipping (fun) content and won't have a good way to make their way through Arctis Tor. M21. Ornithopter Pad
As a reminder, the other sisters (and thus their flying mounts) are not here. M22. Endelyn’s Room
Also a reminder, no Lost Things are here (they are at the Winter Palace). The title of the play here should match what you use in area M20. https://preview.redd.it/a6y4lpya2t2b1.png?width=1700&format=png&auto=webp&s=8575bc8074b37a25a44010d7f19cb153c199c00b
I have highlighted some of the resources I used for this portion of the campaign below. Art Music
- Yon Background Music
- Location Specific Music
- Combat Music
— What’s Next?
After taking a bow from Motherhorn our adventurers will be flying off to Arctis Tor, the Winter Palace and seat of Queen Mab. A grand castle of scheming eladrin nobles, the elusive Zybilna, and of course the party's Lost Things awaits. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any comments, questions, or suggestions and… see you in the Feywild!

2023.05.29 19:01 Able_Possession8736 A Comprehensive Guide to Pro Football Video Game Covers
Another Madden $70 re-skin is upon us, so let's take a moment to explore the history of all the people who have been featured on the cover of an pro football video game.
While the selection of the Madden cover athlete is now an event, there was a wild wild west period of football games from the 80s to the mid-2000s where anybody with a computer could and would build football games, with the selection of the cover being all over the place. Roger Craig was the first cover athlete in 1985 on NFL Challenge for MS-DOS. Madden's first game was in 1988, then by the mid-90s getting a cover athlete or spokesman for your football game was pretty standard.
I wanted to compile those games and covers based on this Wiki article
(and a few that it was missing from that list) and see who was on the main cover of all of those games (some games were almost completely irrelevant, so I left them off this list). Some of these may have more alternates with other people, but I'll stick with the main cover.
Covers by Position https://preview.redd.it/1dzua4o2hl2b1.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=023c573335e64d21fccc937a44db0ae995510db6
*These are heavily boosted by John Madden being on 10 Madden covers
Obviously QBs dominate here, but I didn't realize how little defensive players have been on football game covers (9%), with none being on a cover since Richard Sherman in 2014. I'd love to see more defensive players on the Madden cover. Who would be the most likely defensive guy in the near future? Aaron Donald, TJ Watt, Nick Bosa, Myles Garrett, or Sauce Gardner?
Covers by Team https://preview.redd.it/8f29df4ygl2b1.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=3b93f8a4ddb26b2cee1f6abd74652f44b7fbfdcb
If a team's player was not a lead on the cover or was not any identifiable player, I gave them a *
The Re-skins/Commanders?, Jags, Panthers, and Bills have appeared on a cover but never with an athlete as the lead or with a real person. Only the Texans have never appeared at all on the cover of any football video game. I'd say the Bills are most likely to get one next (Josh Allen), then the Jags (Trevor Lawrence), then the Panthers/Texans if either hits a home run with Young or Stroud. The Commanders have a long road ahead to getting a feature cover athlete, unless you ask Sam Howell who thinks he should be this year's Madden cover athlete.
Most Prolific Cover People https://preview.redd.it/5axoymcakl2b1.png?width=2871&format=png&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=9ecf9c52cad0647d1572d2d9c85ebdef0dd277c3
Kordell Stewart, Daunte Culpepper, and Donovan McNabb (and possibly Lamar Jackson, still too early for him) are the only players with multiple appearances that are either not or are unlikely to make the Hall of Fame. McNabb is the only guy to appear in multiple covers in the same year. Also of note, 7 athletes were on a cover without ever making a pro bowl in their careers: Brad Muster, Pat Terrell, Gordon Laro, Chris Zorich, Albert Fontenot, William Floyd, and Peyton Hillis (Hillis was the only one to be the primary cover athlete).
I'll list all the games and their respective covers by their era below. I'll also attach some of my favorite covers from each era. If the cover person was a Hall of Famer, I'll mark them with a \
). If they're very likely to make the HoF but they're not yet eligible, I'll mark them with a +

We didn't see the first cover athlete until 1985 with Roger Craig. They didn't really become standard until the early to mid-90s after Madden became a big selling point for the early Madden games. The dip in the last 2 decades is because there's just less games, so any generic football games will have a large effect.
The Early Days: 1965-1982 1978: Football! for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 was the first football video game with a cover, but obviously the cover athletes are generic.
The 2D Era: 1983-1996 1985: NFL Challenge was the first football game with a real cover athlete (Roger Craig). This was the original bar for realism in football simulation, to where it was used in a 1988 ESPN Program \"NFL Dream Season\" where they simulated the greatest teams of all time against each other. 1988: John Madden Football released on the Apple II, MS-DOS, and Commodore 64/128 (partly being developed by Bethesda), which was the beginning of the most dominant franchise in football video games. They featured no NFL teams due to a lack of an NFL license. 1991: Tecmo Super Bowl is probably still my personal favorite football video game. It's totally timeless, and if you pick the Raiders then you're a cheater.

The Parity Era: 1997-2004 1997: NFL Blitz came from Midway studios and was a breath of fresh air for football games. They had mostly been stagnant trying to hone in on realistic simulation in 2D form, whereas Blitz came out in 3D and threw realism out the window. I definitely spent too much money on the arcade version of this game. 2000: Madden 2001 started the tradition of having their games feature a cover athlete in this format, which consolidated into nearly everyone following this trend. 2001: Backyard Football 2002 was a more kid-friendly version of a football video game, and they also had other games for other professional sports. I definitely played this a lot on my old Windows Me computer, and Pablo Sanchez is a god. 2002: NFL Fever was Microsoft's foray into football video games on the original Xbox. All 3 of their games featured Peyton Manning as the cover athlete. 2002: NFL GameDay 2003 was 989 Sports' exclusive for Sony on the PlayStation platform. 2004: ESPN NFL 2K5 was the last great football game before the NFL exclusively gave their license to the EA. It was this game that definitely led to NFL's decision though, as they slashed their release price to an unheard of $20, which forced Madden 2004 to release at $30 instead of the typical $50. This pissed off the NFL, who decided to have less competition instead.
The Madden Era: 2005-Present 2005: NFL Street 2 was the second in the NFL Street series as a kind of spiritual successor to NFL Blitz. EA tried to have some diversity in their football video games outside of the Madden franchise, so they had the short-lived Street franchise under \"EA BIG\" 2006: NFL Head Coach was a new perspective on NFL Games where you play as the coach instead of the players. I enjoyed these although they could get a little boring. 2007: All Pro Football 2K8 was 2K's attempt at keeping the 2K football franchise alive without the coveted NFL license. They got three HoF players on the cover in Elway, Barry, and Rice, but not the actual license to any NFL team. This game received praise for its mechanics, but poor sales showed that a non-NFL licensed game would always struggle to make it. 2011: Madden 12 was maybe the last good Madden game. Also, Peyton Hillis. The only guy on a NFL football game cover to never make a Pro Bowl. This guy is an actual hero though, so good for him. 2019: Doug Flutie's Maximum Football was a mix of american and CFL football as another attempt at making a football game without the NFL license to poor results. They have announced a new game as a free to play title on new platforms, but no games in this franchise have released since 2020. 2020: Retro Bowl is a mobile game more in the style of Tecmo Super Bowl than Madden. It's probably the most successful non-Madden game since ESPN NFL 2K5, and it's pretty fun. People should definitely give this one a try since it's free to play on any mobile platform. 2022: Madden 23 gave the cover back to Madden for the first time since 1999 to honor the passing of the legend John Madden. Unfortunately the game inside the cover was crap, has been the style of Madden games for over a decade.

2023.05.29 18:26 LadyGryffin A friend of mine lives in an HOA
I, myself, do not. I just want to get some clarity on whether this is a normal situation. I recently learned this little bit about his HOA in a side comment and we didn't have time for me to ask more questions. It just kinda blew my mind and i just have to KNOW. I was always under the impression that HOA board was a volunteer kind of arrangement.
Part of their HOA dues goes into a pool of $250k that the five board members split as a salary. I HOPE/ASSUME they are the ones doing all of the property management duties, but I don't know for sure. The idea that being on your HOA board qualifies for a salary worthy of a full time job kinda blew my mind.
This is a community of about 800 homes in a pretty rural county. Property is pretty inexpensive out there, so big communities like this on converted farmland or wooded areas is not unusual.
This is the list of amenities from their HOA website.
- Member access to Lakes 1, 2 and 3 with parking available at 1 and 2 only.
- Community swimming pool with diving board and detached baby pool (described as TINY by my friend)
- Covered pavilions at the community park with attached playground. (covered picnic areas have charcoal grills)
- Covered pavilions at Lakes 1 and 2
- Open field park by the community pool
- Outdoor basketball court and larger attached blacktop area
- HOA community center
- Privately maintained roads, snow removal and HOA roadside maintenance, etc.
- Twice a year community yard sale
- Memorial Day community picnic to open the pool
There's also a "tot lot" that's not included in this list. Also described as TINY by my friend.
