Animephobia is the fear of anime. Anime is a Japanese kind of cartoon animation, which has its own famous style. When a sufferer sees an anime drawing, they will go into a state of panic and hide their eyes.

Epic... Hear our plea...We want the TMNT!!!
Okay Epic/Fortnite, it's been rumored long enough! Get on the phone with Nickelodeon/Viacom/Paramount and get the Lean Green Ninja Team into your game! Heck why not grab one of the brothers from each iteration of the cartoon series to this date? (I'm personally partial to the selection I chose above) As a really EPIC move, make them the main draw of the next season... Season four? Four Ninja Turtles? It writes itself honestly! You can thank me later.

2023.06.08 06:25 blackFX Not a Christian but I love the Bible and it’s teachings.

I’m not a Christian (more spiritual then anything) but I keep a bible by my bedside and every time I talk with friends or colleagues and we have deep discussions I always bring up bible passages or quotes.
The other day me and my friend tripped mushrooms and midway through the trip my friend said something and I replied “just like Jesus said it’s not what goes into the person that defiles them, but what comes out…”
He was like “dude wtf are you talking about. Your always talking about Jesus and the Bible and prayer AND YET YOU SAY YOUR NOT A CHRISTIAN!?!?”
idk but the older I get. The deeper I think. Especially with psychedelics ( I know this is wrong to you guys) the more it draws me to the word of “god”
I just read the Bible and think…. This is a 100% great way to live life . If I ever have a child I won’t force any religion on him but I will definitely buy him a Bible and tell him to live by its rules because why not? Jesus really was amazing man. And I think he might of really lived!
Thanks for reading this and I hope nobody found it offensive with the drug talk.

2023.06.08 04:07 thethiiinker "Easy access" by Osvaldo Gutierrez Gomez

The political cartoon below, "Easy Access", made by Osvaldo Gutierrez Gomez in 2016, was inspired by a quote from former American president Barack Obama when he said, "We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book". The way that it depicts books, a source of knowledge, education, and independent thought, on a shelf that is far harder to reach than the several deadly weapons directly beneath them, displayed on the wall. This cartoon is a criticism of America's failure as a country, government, and its system to prioritize protecting the lives of citizens, especially children, over their 'innate' right to carry a firearm. In addition, it is also a criticism of the failure of American school systems for making sufficient education so incredibly difficult for the general public to access. One of the key things that draws people to America is the idea of "The American Dream": pursuing one's own goals and dreams. Although it sounds positive, it shows how hedonism is a core value to American citizens, and thus, people are so busy thinking about themselves and how inconvenient it would be to not have guns anymore that they do not acknowledge that through turning a blind eye, they are killing. Children all across the United States practice hiding from someone with a gun instead of learning their ABCs. Instead of only needing a book or two, a lunchbox, and some pencils in their backpacks, American children are being sent home with bulletproof inserts. Thousands of people die every single year from mass shootings, many of which were children who were just trying to learn how to to add and subtract, and yet the people of America prioritize their weapons, a material object, in the name of self-defense. As a result of the people and the system created by them, it has become easier for a child to stumble upon a gun than sufficient education, and it speaks measures to what America truly values. The masses do not care, and neither does the government, for making change is simply too inconvenient.
(Personal note: As an American citizen, this is something I have been very frustrated about for a very long time. I have personally lost family members back in the US because of the lack of proper gun control. Writing about this was very important to me.)

Hey, just looking to make a connection, whether that is in person or online. I’d say I’m pretty chill, can talk about current events or have philosophical conversations about God, the universe, life, etc.
Some current hobbies are chess, novel writing, drawing, and photography. Special interest have always been on these topics as well as animals, tv shows, movies, cartoons, etc.
Seeking someone we can start as friends and see where it goes. No pressure. Sometimes things just don’t work out, sometimes friendship is better, or we’ll see.
I love talking about mental health, offering support, an ear to listen, etc.

Cover Art <<Previous Start Next >>
Copying their original shape and color for now, Mordecai started his forest with the mushrooms that had a single stalk and cap. Or rather, that showed above ground that way, all mushrooms were merely the ‘fruit’ of the actual fungus. They wouldn’t entirely behave that way when he was done, but the main body would always be below the ground.
The very tallest ones were thin with narrow, pointy caps, while each successive tier of shorter mushroom had wider caps and thicker stalks. The very shortest, broadest of these had a clearance of about 10 feet between the ground and the bottom of the cap. Once he had enough for a thick canopy, Mordecai switched to the mushrooms with more interesting designs.
Some grew in small, tightly packed clumps, others spread out in branching layers. Over here was a cluster that looked like horns, while another one looked almost like a piece of coral or a brain. And there were so many colors to go with the endless variety of shapes; bright oranges, vivid reds, and even the occasional delicate blue. It was rather beautiful he had to admit. But he wasn’t done.
Now that he had a common layer done, he started adding rarer ones. In one area he added some mushrooms that ‘bled’ a crimson fluid out of its cap as well as a beautiful pink-capped mushroom that ‘bled’ a pale yellow fluid from its white stalk. While the first was completely inedible as the fluid was an anti-coagulant, the second one was merely bitter, and someone with the right knowledge could tell the difference, and possibly make a weapon coating to increase the bleeding of cut and pierced foes. Keeping in theme with the forest, they were 1 to 2 feet tall, much larger than their normal variations.
And that was one thing Mordecai was being very careful of, any mushroom that was an upscaled version of a normal mushroom would have the same properties. So he continued creating clusters of various normal mushroom varieties until there were only a few types he hadn’t placed. Those were going to be the base for some of his more creative work, and he wanted them to be a bit more obvious that they weren’t the same as the normal mushrooms. At least, if you knew what a normal one was supposed to look like.
But before that, it was time to work in a bit of precaution. While most druids were better with plants and animals than they were with fungi, some specialized in fungi, and he’d already been served up his reminder about druids. So he drew on the living crystal that they had created for flowers and incorporated it into this level as well. As the theme here was mushrooms, he used the living crystal concept to create new mushrooms. These were tiny buds that liked to nestle amongst other mushrooms, and their mycelium wove between and intertwined with the mycelium of the other mushrooms. Their crystalline nature would resist most attempts at controlling them through normal nature magic, while their living aspect resisted elemental control.
The top layer of soil was almost a veneer, more than a foot down and one would find a thick matting of mycelium, and this structure wove its way even deeper, to the crystalline sheathing he and Kazue had started integrating into all of the dungeon’s outer structure.
Now it was time to have fun. He’d need to give everything a less lethal mode, but he was going to start with the deadly version to make the design feel right. Puff balls were a good start, these he enhanced to make their spores more aggressive and faster to grow, making exposure dangerous and inhalation worse. Then he added variety, imbuing some with a stronger version of a stink horn's odor. While not particularly dangerous, direct exposure can be overwhelming and leave one sickened and retching as they tried to recover. It left people vulnerable while making noise that might draw unwanted attention. He also made sure that these spores, but not the puffball itself, were sticky and luminescent to visibly mark the victim as well.
Now, the stinkhorns brought up another idea. Many varieties had netting which was used to spread their scent. They didn’t act like traps, but they looked like they could be actual nets. So he was going to make some that were. The first step was to alter the secretion to be a subtle, attractive scent that would lure people closer even if they didn’t realize they were smelling it. And instead of having the netting just grow, it stayed rolled up until something was close enough to trigger it, not unlike a puffball’s explosive action. The netting was coated in the sweet-scented secretion, which was also sticky, acidic, and contained a digestive enzyme. The combination was designed to entangle prey and keep it trapped while it was dissolved, and in such concentration the sweet scent proved to also be a soporific, dulling the mind and potentially sending the prey to sleep.
His next trap mushrooms were more direct in their attack, but didn’t come with a lure. Instead, they grew in spread-out groupings, tightly packed clusters at the tip of foot-long stalks that could hide among other mushrooms. They had a basic motion sensor trigger, and the groups were always all the same organism. When movement happened close enough to trigger three or more stalks at the same time, every triggered stalk’s tip exploded with tethered, razor-sharp darts, whose edges were hardened by living crystal. The darts were coated with a paralytic neurotoxin, and when they hit home would inject even more. The outer coating ensured that even a glancing blow to the flesh would at least deliver some of the toxins and hopefully slow the prey down enough to get caught.
The tethers were simple strands, designed to act like harpoon lines and give the toxin time to take effect. There were no digestive enzymes here, the goal was simply to down the prey and let it decompose in place, enriching the soil. The tethers dropped off the stalks about 10 minutes after the darts were fired, the prey was either disabled or free by then, and the stalks could start regenerating a new set of darts.
Mordecai moved on to creating his final active hazard. He created a new type of mushroom tree to populate the forest, about 12 feet tall and with a wide, thin cap whose underside glowed with a soft violet light. Most of them were actually perfectly safe, and the light actually promoted quicker healing for most creatures, but a small percentage of them were actually a look-alike species, differentiated from a distance only by a subtle change in the color of its light.
This light created a soothing effect, but it was designed to slow and distract creatures rather than promote healing. This left them more vulnerable when tendrils unfurled from the cap to lash about, wrapping around anything unfortunate enough to be hit by them. The tendrils didn’t stop whipping about when they caught something, the violent motion shaking its prey hard enough to potentially snap necks, limbs, or spines, depending on what portion of a creature had been grabbed. The violent motion lasted for about a minute before the tendrils came to a stop. It took about 20 more minutes for them to retract into the gills of the cap, carrying any prey into the mushroom’s flesh where it could be properly digested.
With the hazards finished, and one of them giving off light, it seemed like a good time to work on more lighting. There was a type of mushroom that grew out from vertical surfaces, dipping down and curving up before forming its cap. This made it look a bit like a wall-mounted lantern, and Mordecai ran with that idea. The first variants he spawned near the waterfalls and the springs near surfaces that let them hang out over the water. After making sure they were adjusted to only want very wet or humid environments, he gave them luminescence in a variety of orange, red, and goldish yellow colors, then made them prolific spore producers, with the spores glowing in the same colors. The spores were about neutrally buoyant to water, with a bit of variation to ensure the glowing spores spread out to different levels in the streams. The visual effect was somewhere between that of water reflecting fire and the molten glow of lava. It did not compliment the violet glow coming from some of the mushroom trees at all.
The spores would also get brought to the edge of the water, deposited by various ripples and splashes, making it hard to see exactly where the edge of the water was. This wasn’t helped by the spores finding niches to grow more of the little lantern mushrooms, leaving all the waterways a confusing haze. The spores and mushrooms were all perfectly harmless and reasonably nutritious, so the streams could be used as a water source without worrying about poison at least.
And for a third light source, Mordecai used the same style of lantern mushrooms but made these ones not like humidity as much, and also adverse to direct violet illumination from the mushroom trees that glowed. These glowed a sickly greenish color, and could grow on almost any vertical surface but did not like growing in high concentration. This left their glow diffuse and unreliable as a light source.
None of these three colors worked well together, and were never in enough concentration to combine evenly into a roughly white illumination. The waterways were the only consistent illumination available naturally, but that would also leave one’s outline visible against the glowing water. The other choice was to make one’s way through the patchy light and shadow of the forest.
Of course, one could produce one’s own light source of a proper white and easily wash out the effects of these other colors, but such glow would also be quite noticeable to anyone close enough. Most of the time there would at least not be a direct line of sight to make a light source visible to anyone too far away.
Overall it was rather disorienting for most types of vision and forced adventurers into making trade-off decisions about light and visibility as they prepared to contest the dangers of the level.
Once he was satisfied that the environment was well set, it was time to start modifying some inhabitants, and he had quite a few ideas he was eager to try out. There were some serpentine variants of draconic body shapes he had plans for.

2023.06.07 23:13 WasdCritics Curse of the Dead Gods

Curse of the Dead Gods
While a game in the rouguelite genre Curse of the Dead Gods presents a subtle unity of the elements that make up the work, yet with a conclusion that serves too much of the gameplay, and almost nothing of the plot.
The plot of Curse of the Dead Gods discurses about an adventurer named Caradog McCallister exploring the temple of the god of death, within this environment there are three gods imprisoned by the god of death Xbeltz'aloc, the gods are: T'amok' the jaguar god of war and earthly fire, Yaatz the eagle goddess of the sky and fire storm, and Sich'al the serpent goddess of divine vision and perception. The goal of the game is to destroy the god himself and conquer this temple.
This plot is not spelled out right away, there is little information and it is given throughout the game when the player is able to unlock the bestiary pages. The pages have limited information and are usually stray snippets of history without many connections. It is clear that the story is in the background in the game, it is not the core of the work, but the way it is put, always in fragments, and scattered makes sense with the proposal of the game, the character is an explorer, the information must be mined and discovered little by little and nothing is clear and concise. It is a very interesting idea that by leaving aside this side of the storyline still makes up a unity with the proposal of the work.
To understand the plot there is a certain effort from the player to compose the loose pieces of history and this generates immersion with this explorer character. The interesting thing is that this character has no lines, this makes him distant from the player, not intimate at all. Perhaps this works with the idea of the player dying and being resurrected at the beginning of the temple, the character's death is trivial because of the distance that is created between her and the player, which starts with the lack of a name for the character.
Rouguelite as a genre receives several roguelike characteristics but adds some ideas of its own, the hack slash proposal, and that of permanent items, despite the classic permanent death. Curse of the Dead Gods presented this genre that roughly speaking cares much more about the mechanics and challenges than about the story, succeeds in this less important aspect, because the work uses the story to corroborate the classic mechanics of the genre.
The resurrection mechanic is based on the god of death himself who plays sadistically resurrecting the player infinite times to try again to complete the temple, so this mechanic of resurrection, the constant repetition of the path to try to overcome it that is a basic idea of the rouguelite is corroborated by the game's story.
Another point that the mechanics are connected to the story is in the attributes: constitution, dexterity, and perception, each one linked to a color and a god. The constitution is linked to the jaguar god and the color red, dexterity to the eagle goddess and the color blue, and perception to the serpent goddess and the color green. In addition the blessings are also linked to the gods following the color ideas, the red blessings to the jaguar god, the blue blessings to the eagle goddess and the green blessings to the serpent goddess. As in the story these gods are imprisoned by the god of death, it makes sense for him to help the player overcome the temples, kill the god of death and so they can be set free. Again the story, serving the game mechanics.
It is not only the story that works for the game mechanics to make sense within the context of the work, the setting is also part of it. The temple, a dark place, full of monsters that has already been challenged by several other adventurers, this environment for being a temple and being connected to the divine, should have relics with sacred powers and for being explored countless times by several explorers should have several weapons used that were abandoned along the way during exploration, in addition as an environment dominated by the god of death, the lighting is needed as a basic antagonist the personification of the idea of death: dark, cold and treacherous, unlike fire that is light, warm and comfortable. With these ideas it is introduced different mechanics that are part of the game, the environment itself gives meaning to the mechanics made available.
The mechanics are the basis of every roguelite, they are the key point, the core, the true protagonist of the work. That said, when analyzing them, they propose a large set of influences on top of the basic hack slash, dodge, and block gameplay, using lighting, weapons, attributes, corruption, blessings, divine favors, and relics. These influences come from different places, as mentioned before. The different mechanics that make up the game at first seem extremely complex and become easy to understand over time, but these outcroppings that influence the base gameplay, mask a chronic problem of the game, the simplicity of this same base gameplay. This simplicity is one factor that can destroy the experience when playing a roguelite.
The roguelite as a game is all about challenges and overcoming, when it comes to the player experience, this is what makes it exciting, the feeling of overcoming, of achievement, and the harder the game is the more rewarding that feeling is. Of course, the developers have to keep in mind the limits of difficulty that they themselves propose in order not to discourage the players with constant failures. The line is fine, but it needs to be precise, this is the key point of a work of this style.
The enemies presented are simple mechanically, both the normal mobs and some bosses, always with simple attacks and very easy to dodge, even some monsters towards the end of the game, such as the dark snake avatar, the boss is ridiculous how simple it is to face it, even the final boss is not a great challenge.
Besides this problem, there is a problem directly related to the conclusion of the game, when facing the champion of the god of death, the last boss of the game, and ending the game, at least theoretically, the cinematic for conclusion serves directly to the mechanics, when killing himself instead of accepting to be dominated by the mask and assume the post of the new champion, the player returns to the beginning of time. This directly serves the mechanical idea of the player being able to continue doing the expeditions and not simply assume the position of the new champion of the god of death, however, when thinking about this the solution to the story's impasse does not exist, why will the gods continue helping the explorer if there are only two solutions and neither saves them? and yet the lack of choice at the end creates a feeling of obligation to stay in this loop forever, there is a sense of defeat, even after victory, the problem is that this defeat is imposed.
Aesthetically the game is beautiful, the cartooning to deal with dark themes allows a natural surreality that is common in cartoons in general, so the choice is assertive. The thicker lines of the drawings make everything more defined, and serve well the mechanical purpose of delimiting the space of objects, making it easier to dodge attacks, skills, and traps in the game.
One cool detail is the permanent items themselves, the idea of the crystal skull, makes a reference to the classic Indian jones and marries with the idea of the explorer, and the jade ring connects to the more oriental mystical part and the culture of jade as a holder of mystical powers. These two references do the idea of the work as a whole well.
In conclusion, Curse of the Dead Gods manages to have a unity as a work with all its elements working together, presenting these elements as a strong support for its flagship, but the work gets lost in the core of its proposal and pushes down a disgusting ending that works solely for the game mechanics and not for the conclusion of a work.

Need help with shading
I just made this Peter B. Parker drawing, and I wanna color it in with alcohol markers. But I dont know where to shade. I want to go for a simplistic style of shading, kinda cartoon-ish. So no blending or anything, just the firts layer of dark shading, let it dry, and the second layer coloring it in with the main color. Pls guide me where to shade
