  1. I'm not sure we of the original Ghostbloods take kindly to this upstart organization, much less the assertion of my chair is yours, I would hate for a sleeping dragon to wake, I would be willing to discuss a change in leadership, but I'm also willing to escalate, we are not as numerous as we once were but we are still here. @Thaidakar the Ghostblood feel free to PM me if you wish to discuss logistics in a more private manner.

    Is this place still alive?

    Not really, this was only active back in the Alleyverse's prime, way back when. I've noticed you commenting on a couple of the old Alleyverse pages. If you have questions about how things used to be or are looking to get things started again PM me, I'd love to see the ball get rolling!

    I'm really having trouble with college right now. I just haven't been able to do work. I know I've always had a pretty bad work ethic, which kinda weirdly combines with my perfectionism to keep me from doing anything. I can't stand not doing something well, but I can't spare the effort to do it up to my own standards, so I just give up and don't do it. This has become a huge problem for me recently, to the point where I have done almost no assignments in the past week, if any. Even though I need to keep my grades up in order to keep my scholarships which are honestly the only thing that lets me go to this school. I've barely even been practicing my instruments, and I like that. I've just been watching YouTube videos for hours on end. Even if I do sit down to work, my ADD ensures that I'll soon head down the rabbit trail of the internet. I've been staying up too late, not getting exercise, and when I do get exercise, it's basically an excuse to avoid responsibility and listen to music. I feel like I should try to get help, but "I can't do work," sounds really pathetic, like a dumb excuse, even though it might be an actual problem, and not just me.

    Please, if you have advice, feel free to give it to me. I think I know what I need to do, but someone else telling me to do it will hopefully help motivate me.

    I'm in the same boat as far as collage,little work ethic, and ADD goes. I'm still figuring stuff out but I have found that a light course load is definitely helpful. As for studying, I plan on getting distracted and try to work in bursts, the trick is to maximize one's limited production time. Also coffee.

  4. For the past month or two I have known my bosses were doing some shady things and I finally figured it out!! Its PPP fraud, I just need to figure out who I report it to and hope there's a hefty reward for blowing the whistle. It feels good to finally know whats going on XD. I also successfully disassembled and fixed my resin 3D printer and have been consistently getting good prints. This coupled with a semi-successful aluminum casting has me feeling pretty good. Also, @hoiditthroughthegrapevine blackberry pie has to be the best type of pie, congratulations on 3 of them!! I'm definitely not at all jealous :D

    First random idea: cookies MUST be scanned via steel/iron Allomancy.

    How effective would this be? Seeing as the more invested a spike is the harder it is to sense with steel/iron sight wouldn't this just flood the streets with higher invested spiked cookies? We already tried this with America's war on drugs, one of the results was an increase in drug potincy, why wouldn't this happen here?

  6. Looking at the selecting the hegemon thread I saw a devolution into arguments and propaganda and thought it would be a good idea to create a new thread solely for the purpose of endorsing candidates. This is not the place to argue or share propaganda images, it's simply a place to post an endorsement and be heard.


    This being said, I am TFA and I support @I Am A Fish. I joined the 17 Shard in 2017, I lurked a while before joining the Assasins in Technicolor, This was before the Allyverse and the guild has long since died but thanks to a few individuals I started to become more involved. I started gaining popularity and power and It was exhilarating, at the hight of my power, I was elected the mayor of the Alleyverse. I like to think that my time on the forum and involvement in the creation of the Allyverse has given me experience and perspective, enough to know a good candidate when I see one. I have had the pleasure to interact with many incredible;e individuals in my Shardic tenure, some were born leaders, others were paragons of honor and goodness, and some whom morality is not an axis they consider Fish is definitely the former. To be frank, humans have done a not to a great job of ruling, we subjugated other spices, and each day that passes we move the world closer to that of a barren wasteland. I have spoken with Fish and they are passionate about renewable energy and clean water, not to mention their progressive stance on interspecies equality. Fish would do what is best for the nations of the world.

    Our world faces challenges and we need to make a difficult choice if you were to ask me who I'd promote Fish has my vote!

  7. I have always wondered about on/off Aons such as an Aon Edo, imagine an Aon Edo engraved on a plate then part of the plate is cut away and can be placed back in, to complete the Aon and activate a shield. The same concept could be applied to other Aons such as Daa to create a rudimentary energy weapon or even with Ehe to create a flamethrower. My only questions are whether intent would be a roadblock, and wether a non-Elantrian could activate it if an Elantrian was to inscribe it first.
