final call for trades
Hi everyone, with only a day or so left to complete the sets I've kinda given up lol... if anyone has any spares to trade or are kind enough to donate spares it would be greatly appreciated 👍
I'm fairly active so you should get a response from me pretty quick. Unfortunately I won't send first as I have been scammed out of a lot of good cards, but have traded and helped out a few people in the Reddit.

2023.06.07 05:21 Bit_by_bit1 Drabble part 1

I’ve wondered what this story would be. Would there be romance or adventure or horror? Some complicated intricate plot woven together so perfectly it almost makes you pause, expect you’re so excited to see the resolution you can’t. Unfortunately for me, and well for you as well, I’ve never been much of a writer. Never been good at stories with a beginning middle and end, even the ones I make up in my head seem to ramble and twist and turn. Even this paragraph seems a little pointless.
What I’m trying to say is I don’t know what this story will be. I don’t even know if anyone will read it. I just know that I want to write it down, whatever it is. I want to unload this feeling onto some pages, and maybe if the feelings turn good onto a reader as well. I cant promise the second though, and with the way things have been recently I am not optimistic. But I can promise truth, and pain, and a lot of growth. Whats to come is real life after all, hidden under some deceptive fiction.
I don’t know your story, but maybe if you made it this far you want to know mine?

The bottle scraped across the chipping acrylic of the bar as I set it down. Stella. Just like an old friend of mine used to drink, that was before of course. Before I made a selfish choice that pulled me away. Another new town, another new beginning. I’m really good at those. I’ve had more than my share.
This towns larger than the last, has three restaurants (two of which belong to chains of course but ill take it) and a grocer all in “downtown”. I’ve seen most of it on my drive here from the airport. I’m here for work, and if were being honest I’m here because I messed up. And I’m running from it. Runnings not new either.
The edge of the beer label is fraying in the corner, and my fingers itch to pick at it. Someone once told me that meant you need to get laid. That same person tried to get into my pants 3 hours later, impressed he waited that long. He didn’t succeed, for all those nosy humans out there.
“Staring at that beer is just gonna heat it up more” the voice from across the bar sings at me, “and no one likes a warm beer.” It belongs to a woman in her mid-30s maybe with ashy blonde hair that’s in need of a wash. On her neck is a big snake tattoo, reaching up to bite behind her ear.
“I like your tattoo” I comment absently. I don’t. I think its tacky and the lines are messy, but I say it anyway. I say it because she wants to hear it, and cause I’m aching for a connection.
“Thanks, you don’t seem like the tattoo type” She replies. This comment used to catch me off guard, as always when someone would call me on my bullshit people pleasing. But I’ve spent enough years being whatever I need that I no longer break a sweat.
“Like tattoos well enough, just never was good at the whole commitment thing” there, a half truth. One that doesn’t offend, one that pulls it back to me. When in doubt, blame yourself. Is that how the saying goes? No, well that’s how it goes in my head.
“Well can I get you to commit to another stella?”
“Nah, but can commit to the check if you have a moment.”
“Guess that warm beer isn’t doing it for ya. Its 6 even.”
I hand her a 10, with a “keep the change” as she grabs it. “I’m headed to 462 Brooke Ave, do you know the way?”
“Old Wangers place? Someone finally bought that?” She asks with a raised eyebrow.
“I didn’t realize it had been vacant for so long? My agent said the last family just left” I replied, grabbing my jacket from the back of the chair.
“That was decades ago, rumor is Dr. Wanger left after his youngest started talking to the walls. When she the dog died three days after she said it would that was enough for him.” The bartender dropped this casually, while mixing a drink for the figure at the end of the bar.
“Wait are you saying its haunted?” I’ve never been good with scary, life is scary enough without adding paranormal to the equation.
She looks up then, face stoic. She’s really about to tell me I bought a haunted house. Suddenly that second beer sounds really good. “Gotcha” she grins, lips pulling up into a grin. “Welcome newby”
“Charlie.” I reply automatically, even though she didn’t ask. Then add “Just to confirm its not haunted right?”
“Not that I know of, but I guess you’re going to find out tonight.” She walks the mixed drink down to the stranger at the other end of the bar.
As I walk to my car it hits me, my agent said this house belonged to an old married couple that left for Florida’s warmer weather. Old Wanger house my ass. I chuckle as I slide into my seat, only to realize I never did get directions.

Niantic's new Anti-Cheat Behavior System is active

Using a 3rd party modified app, joystick app, adventure sync app, or any kind of cheating app carries risk for a strike/ban. It does not matter which kind of Pokemon Go (official or 3rd party modified) app you use with your cheat, you will have a chance for a strike/ban. This is all dependent on what is being tracked in the anti-cheat behavior system. If you did not get a strike/ban back in 2022, you are considered lucky.
If you value the time and money you invested into your account(s), you should not cheat with your account(s). If you own multiple accounts, you are subjective to whatever punishment they come up for owning more than one account according to the Pokemon Go's Terms of Service. If you do not care about the strikes/bans, you can do whatever pleases you. You are welcome at any time to share your strike screenshot in my subreddit.
Just because I provide you with the information on how you can break the game's Terms of Service by the use of game cheats or exploits, I am not responsible or liable for the loss of your Pokemon Go account(s) or money used to buy in-game items and tickets.

MSC Meraviglia - Galleria Meraviglia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUvbzF_DaHI In November 2022, I embarked on a solo cruise on the MSC Meraviglia from Port Canaveral, Florida. The Galleria Meraviglia on the ship was truly impressive! The stunning architecture, beautiful lighting, and fantastic artwork made it a mesmerizing experience. I was impressed by the variety of shops and restaurants offered and the overall ambiance. It's a must-visit spot for anyone onboard the ship.

2023.06.06 20:47 What_if_I_fly May 2024 Florida departures

I'm wondering when May 2024 departures from Florida ports will be posted? Easter is late and we want to avoid sailing on a school holiday/ spring break time.

2023.06.06 20:24 pjpeppercorn Which Caribbean itinerary?

Our family is looking to take a cruise March 2024. We’re limited by time but have found two that would work. Both are on RC. Which would you all prefer? We’ve never been to any of the ports.
7 night western Caribbean out of Tampa on enchantment of the seas Puerto costa maya Roatan Belize City Cozumel
9 night eastern out of Miami on Explorer of the seas. Puerto Plata Charlotte Amalie St Thomas St. John’s St. George Basseterre
Also feel free to make other suggestions. Our kids are elementary school age and we like beaches and adventures. Thanks!

2023.06.06 20:23 The_nightinglgale Transgender healthcare ban in Florida is blocked!✊💙❤️🤍❤️💙

Edit: trans youth ban. Can't change the title.🤥
“Today’s ruling is a powerful affirmation of the humanity of transgender people, the efficacy of well-established, science-based medical care, and of the rights of parents to make informed healthcare decisions for their children. The court recognized the profound harm the state of Florida is causing by forcing parents to watch their kids suffer rather than provide them with safe and effective care that will allow them to thrive. We are incredibly relieved that these Florida parents can continue to get healthcare for their children while we proceed to challenge these bans and eventually see them fully overturned.”💐🦈
Meatball head can go pound dirt!🦔
“They can try to ban us. They can try to get rid of our health care. They can try to deny us housing, credit, and public accommodations. They can try to shame us. They can try all they want to erase us, but at some point, they will realize the trans community is never going away. Trans people are everywhere. Every country, every race, every ethnicity, every religion, every socioeconomic level, every period of human history — we are everywhere. We are natural. You can’t rid of what’s natural. I think they know that, and it terrifies them.” — Charlotte Clymer👑

2023.06.06 20:21 Fun_Organization_647 The big missed opportunity...

You went to the Apple store. You tried on a headset that 1000 other people have worn (ick.) You shelled out 3500. You get home, unbox, hook up your ball-and-chain battery tether, and don your ski-goggles.... and now you are immediately greeted with...
A 2D windowing system and app grid? 2D photos? 2D messaging and 2D web pages? You get my drift...
Apple achieved a lot with this debut, but I'm disappointed that Apple of all companies was not more imaginative, novel, and most especially playful in envisioning what could be done in manipulating and enhancing the world around us. Instead, they just ported over and multiplied/amplified a bunch of "flatworld" screens from the world around us, missing the huge, one-time, 1984-ad sized opportunity to liberate us completely from those screens.
The only reason "windows" exist in the first place is because Xerox and Apple needed a means for people to interact with a flat screen and a flat controller (mouse.)
To my mind, Apple completely missed the boat here by not seizing on the opportunity to immerse the user in a 3D-first interaction paradigm. Golden rule: *nothing* should be flat in AVR. Did they even get in a room and brainstorm art-of-possible? Or just start copy-pasting their MacOS components and frameworks into visionOS?
Let me play visionOS Product Owner for 10 minutes...
As a spatial-computing avid book reader, I want to physically hold a real book in my hands, but have my e-book or PDF rendered page-for-page on top of the physical book pages.
As a spatial-computing music lover, I want to pull a record from the virtual shelf (driven by my itunes/spotify libraries) and lay it on my virtual record player. (Or cassette deck. Or 8-track if you like.)
As a spatial-computing business user, I want to view a spreadsheet rendered on this piece of paper on my desk. Let me pick it up, point to individual cells as if it were a printout, etc.
As a spatial-computing first-time adopter, surprise me! Flood my native experience with novelty - something to talk about and brag about with my friends. Render in my space something intricate, realistic, interesting and surprising that is visually appealing and/or a joy to interact with.
As a spatial-computing user with secrets to keep - Put a safe/vault in my room with a dialed combination lock.
As a spatial computing user, I need a brain break. Put a virtual zen garden filled with sand, rocks and a rake on my desk. I'm digging this - super-size it to overlay on my area-rug.
As a spatial computing news reader, overlay my News app content on my real-life newspaper as I hold it in my hands. Mimic the formatting and typography of a newspaper on the fly using content from my feed.
As a spatial computing user, I can add things to my house my wife might not otherwise allow! Let me play pinball in my office in between meetings (Leverage that bouncy-glow wall technology!) And put Pacman/Galaga retro arcade cabinet in my basement / mancave.
As a spatial computing user, I hope to add expensive features to my home I could not otherwise afford. Let me add a water feature to my hallway and tend a garden in my bay window.
As a spatial computing user and web3 enthusiast, allow me to overlay my NFTs on my picture frames.
As a spatial computing user and organization freak, let me sort digital files into folders by grabbing and dropping into an endless 3D filing cabinet.
As a spatial-computing user and eco-enthusiast, I don't want to waste trees, but I love the control I feel when I hold a document as I read. Make any program with a print-interface route to virtual paper that "prints" out of my real printer (or optionally a virtual printer) and let me virtually pick it up and read it.
As a spatial-computing user and escapist, I seek soothing diversion. Let me sculpt on my desk with textured 3D magnetic tan-grams.
As a spatial-computing user, I'm bored with the scene outside my window. Let me put visions of Mavericks, Yosemite and El Capitan outside my window - cast light and sound from corresponding weather patterns on my walls, follow day and night. Let me add an extra window if need be.
As a spatial-computing user, I'm still called on to use my legacy computer several times a day, but I don't want to have to keep taking off my headset. Allow me to overlay a traditional macOS experience on ANY laptop screen so I can use the bouncy, tactile responsiveness of the traditional keyboard and mouse.
As a spatial-computing user, "selecting" an app should be like picking up a tool out of a tool chest, a pencil from a pencil holder, or a toy out of a toybox. No floating icon grids.
As a spatial computing user, let me sit in my car and render me at a drive-in. (Safety notice to NOT turn on the car...)

(Ok Redditors - you take over from here... one rule only: Dream in *3D* only - no flat-world transplants)
Take all of these 2D-equivalent metaphors we've developed over the years and put them back into their raw 3D object equivalents BY DEFAULT. Only resort to 2D paradigms and windows *as a last resort*. Let's build this new computing paradigm *from the ground up in 3D*... bridge to the old "flat world" only as a last resort and on-ramp.
Or... you know ...just sell me a floaty-2D-window machine... just like Meta (Quest), Microsoft (HoloLens) and Google (Glass) did.

2023.06.06 19:27 ir1379 NYT article from 1971

THE compulsive gambler sub consciously wants to lose his shirt, of course, along with everything else he owns, and so he again and again puts down the rent money on the Montreal Expos or 80‐to‐1 2‐year‐old maiden fillies wear ing blinkers and bandaged forelegs. And if he's nothing else, Walter Matthau, the 50‐year‐old stage and movie actor, is a compulsive gambler. A few years ago, for instance, while in Florida to film episodes of a TV series called “Tallahassee 7000,” Matthau breath‐takingly managed in a mere two weeks to drop no less than $183,000. He lost the money, moreover, not by backing crippled nags at Hialeah but mainly instead by betting on the outcome of spring training baseball games, a way of tossing bundles of money out the window that should surely that year have won him the Nobel Prize for masochism.
Since dropping that $183,000, sum that eventually took, him six years to pay off to his increa ingly impatient Mafia ‐ connected book maker, Matthau has cut down con siderably on the amounts that he bets, especially when he goes to race tracks, and on a good day at Holly wood Park he can now come happily home having lost only $400 or $580.
Still, he continues casually to bet thousand dollars or so on things like N.B.A. play‐off games or whether or not a friend can name the capital of Albania, and so remains a prime example of the evils of gambling to all those New Yorkers who are thinking of taking a first‐time fling at the ponies because of an easy access these days to offtrack betting windows in Grand Central Station and elsewhere. “I think that off‐track betting is great for New York,” dryly remarked Matthau during a recent three‐day visit to the city from his home in California. “I mean, it's so democratic—if they keep up off‐track betting long enough, every body in town will be on welfare.”
Of course, though he has the mo rose, hangdog look of a chronic loser, Matthas is scarcely a loser in everything he gets mixed up in. Far from it, as a matter of fact. For example, when signing contracts for his last several movies he chose to gamble on accepting a percentage of the profits in lieu of a salary, and at least one of these gambles has al ready handsomely paid off—his per centage of “Cactus Flower,” a film he made a couple of years ago with Ingrid Bergman and Goldie Hawn, has so far amounted, to more than a million dollars. And he's also on the way to making another million or so as his share of the profits from each of his two most recent pictures—“A New Leaf,” a wacky comedy in which he is co‐starred with Elaine May, and “Plaza Suite,” the film version of Neil Simon's exceedingly successful Broadway play. So, unlike almost every other compulsive gamb er in the country, Matthau is nowadays just about literally rolling in money. Besides, pleased with the way that his career is going, with his marriage, with his three children, and with his seaside home in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Matthau is even happy, an emotion not normally associated with the compulsive gambler.
HOW does a compulsive gambler get to be one? The story of Matthau's life is perhaps an object lesson to all of those who have lately been spend ing their lunch hours in Grand Cen tral Station to wait in line for the dubious privilege of giving away their money to Howard Samuels and his Off track Betting Corporation. In any event, Matthau was born on the lower East Side of Manhattan on Oct. 1, 1920, the son of an impoverished Russian‐Jewish immigrant from Kiev, in the Ukraine, and of a Lithuanian born Jewish mother.
When Matthau was 3 years old, and his older brother, Henry, was 5, his father, a worker at such odd jobs as serving subpoenas for law firms, lit out for parts unknown, leaving him and his brother to be raised by their mother, Rose, who managed to scrape a marginal living for herself and her sons by working as a sewing machine operator in garment district sweatshops. In 1935, when Matthau was 15 years old, he learned of his father's death in Bellevue Hospital. His mother is still living, and—sup ported in the grand manner by her sons (Matthau's brother lives now on Long Island and is a jobber of surplus Army‐Navy goods)—divides her time these days between a penthouse on West End Avenue and a condo in Miami Beach.
During his childhood, Matthau, his brother and his mother lived in succession of cold‐water tenement apartments in the Ukrainian area of the Lower East Side, that is, around East Fifth Street near Second Av enue, being forced to vacate each apartment after only a few months because they'd got so hopelessly far behind in the rent that their land lord would have them evicted. Years later, when Matthau briefly sublet Paul Newman's house in Hollywood for $3,700 per month, he recalled with a shake of his head that $3,700 was more money than the Matthau family had spent on rent during 20 years on the Lower East Side. Mat thau, however, hasn't the slightest nostalgia these days for his poverty ridden childhood. “It was a night mare—a dreadful, horrible, stinking nightmare,” he grimly remembers.
On the Lower East Side, Matthau recalls, the highest ambition of most of his class ates was some day to become a salesman for a garment district dress house, for he himself secretly had far more exalted am bitions — by the age of 8, a day dreamer, a loner, a reader of Shake speare, he'd already determined to become a famous writer and actor. Encouraged by a teacher who ad mired his speaking voice, Matthau appeared in a number of school plays and also regularly recited poetry in school assemblies. On East Fifth Street, anyone who evinced an interest in poetry was thought by his classmates to be seriously lacking in machismo, and Matthau often found himself getting beaten up at recess by schoolyard bullies. So, already feet tall by the age of 10 (he weighed only 90 pounds, however, and, says Matthau, who is today 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds; “when I drank cherry soda, I looked like thermometer”), he put himself through a regimen of muscle‐building until “I had Popeyelike bumps on my skinny arms and could beat up any body who made snide remarks about my poetry reading.”
When Matthau was 11 years old, in fact, one of those whom he alleges to have beaten up in the schoolyard was none other than Rocky Graziano, who grew up, of course, to become the middleweight boxing champion of the world. Of Matthau's claim to having beaten up Graziano, one can unequivocally make the following statement: The story either is or is not true.
IN any event, along with being a compulsive gambler, Matthau is also something of a compulsive stretcher of the truth. Or, to put it perhaps a bit more tactfully, a compulsive weaver of fiction when it comes to talking about his past. For example, bored with repeating the story of his life over and over again to interview ers, Matthau has on more than one occasion told newspapermen and magazine writers that his father was a defrocked Russian Orthodox priest who'd had to flee for his life from Czarist Kiev in 1906 because he'd been preaching sermons in support of Pope Pius X. And this story, told by Matthau to interviewers with an absolutely straight face, has appeared several times as the God's truth in such usually accurate publications as Time and Current Biography.
NOT long ago, too, when Matthau was in New York for a round of newspaper, maga zine, radio and TV interviews to promote “Plaza Suite,” chanced to be in earshot when he told a story to Neil Simon that he'd heard the night be fore from Gene Saks, the director, about a somewhat aging and hard ‐ of hearing actor who'd had trouble re membering his lines in a play last winter at the Palm Beach Playhouse in Florida. So, as Matthau told the story to Si mon, a prompter, unseen by the audience, was hidden in a hole cut into the front of the stage and instructed to call out only key words to the actor when a line was for gotten. “Drastic,” whispered the prompter when the actor went up in his lines on the opening night of the play. From the hard ‐ of ‐ hearing actor, no response. “Drastic,” repeated the prompter in a somewhat louder voice. Again, no response. “Drastic,” the prompter now all but shouted. Still no response, upon which a man in the second row of the orchestra stood up and yelled “Dastic!” The actor heard him, smiled, remem bered his line, and the play went on.
As show‐biz stories go, not bad. Not so great, either. The following evening, however, happened to be on hand when Matthau was being inter viewed by David Frost on Frost's TV talk show and was asked, “What was your most embarrassing moment in the theater?” And, without batting an eyelash, Matthau pro ceeded to tell the “drastic” story as though it was some thing that had happened to him years ago on Broadway.
He concocts personal anec dotes that aren't true, Mat thau later somewhat abashedly told me, because they liven up otherwise boring inter views and make his past seem more colorful than it really was. “Like saying that my father was a Catholic priest — I figure that makes me more interesting than just another Jewish actor who had a pair of Jewish parents,” Matthau explained to me with a grin. “Jewish and Catholic— if I can just work a Protestant into my background, I'm all set.”

2023.06.06 19:15 NeverlandMagician OC summaries

So, a little over a month ago, I made a post about rewriting my old story, and I’m finally getting around to the first chapter. I figured, since it’ll be posted soon, that I’d write summaries for each character.
You can find my post on their appearance and powers here: https://www.reddit.com/JustAddWatecomments/12jgazt/rewriting_an_old_fanfiction/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=ioscss&utm_content=2&utm_term=1
Eleanor “Ellie” Brooks:
Ellie is essentially the Emma of the group, but far more relaxed. She’s an only child and while her parents love her, they are often absent or away on business trips, leaving her house as the perfect place for full moons. At the beginning of the story, she’s 16 and her birthday is December 15th. Outside of making sure she maintains her perfect GPA, her passion is horseback riding, and she owns a horse named Caspian.
Lucille “Lucy” Adams:
She and Ellie have been friends since they were in kindergarten. She has two younger sisters, but they actually all get along really well and she loves them to death. At the beginning of the story she’s 16 and her birthday is October 23rd. Despite having a tough exterior, her feelings can be hurt quite easily, and she has a hard time trusting people. She has asthma, and sometimes forgets her inhaler, leading to issues. Despite that, her passion is running track and she hopes to go pro one day. She’s also bisexual.
Amy Lars:
She moved away one year prior from the events of the story, and she also turned very shortly before she moved. At the start of the story, she’s just moved back, and she’s been a mermaid for a year. She’s 16 and her birthday is February 19. She has a younger brother, but they aren’t close. They get along fine, but they don’t really talk. She’s extremely quiet, and uses her passion for art to express emotions she can’t say out loud.
Calliope “Callie” Simmons:
She’s very outgoing and extroverted, and has no problem making new friends. She turned into a mermaid in the Ireland moon pool 2 years prior to the story. She’s 16 and her birthday is June 5th. She lives alone with her father, who is an astronomer. They’re extremely close and keeping the mermaid secret is the first time she’s ever kept something hidden from him. Her passion is dance, and she hopes to dance for Broadway someday.
Jasmine “Jas” Elkins:
Jas is from America. She and her family moved to the Gold Coast to seek better healthcare for her father. She’s extremely extroverted and a total goofball. Her mouth works faster than her brain, which leads to her often putting her foot in her mouth. She changed into a mermaid in a moon pool in Florida three years prior to the story. She’s 16 and her birthday is April 1st. She has a big brother who is very protective of her, especially after their mother disappeared on them. Her father is ill so he takes care of her and things around the house. She uses humor to cope with things, and her passion is gardening. She’s also a lesbian.
Some random fun facts about the story:
Each of the girls will have a locket. Callie’s and Jas’s lockets are almost as old as the others.
One of the girls is related to Charlotte.
Two members of the families will find out the secret.
There are moon pools all over the world, and they may be explored.
Eventually, after an event at mako island, they will temporarily receive different psychic abilities.

I tried to adjust the water pressure, turning it very low did help with the noise but the pressure being too low is not sustainable. Any ideas?

I have a need to run a couple small .net applications on the same host for a single domain in a development environment. Each one is running on a different port (5320, 5321, 5322).
My goal is to use /test to go to http://localhost:5320/ and to strip /test from the proxied request (wash, rinse, repeat for the other two). Reading it seemed that this was doable using subs_filter but I haven't been able to get it to work.
Using the basic net core 6 canned script I can run the proxy straight for this one app using / and do the /WeatherForecast example, but moving it to /test/ with the rewrite fails.
I've tried it with and without the ior
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 location /test/ { subs_filter /test/ / ior; proxy_pass http://localhost:5320; proxy_http_version 1.1; proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade; proxy_set_header Connection keep-alive; proxy_set_header Host $host; proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for; proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme; }

2023.06.06 18:20 Book_Golem Battle Report (Soulblight vs Kharadron)

Well, I've finally played a whole five turn game of Age of Sigmar, with the latest General's Handbook and everything! I want to get into the habit of writing up battle reports, so here goes.
The Armies
My 1000pt list was the following:
Bloodline: Vyrkos
Leaders Wight King on Skeletal Steed (Warlord) ++General (Hunter's Snare)
Necromancer (Warlord) ++Waste Away ++Ulfenkarni Phylactery
Vampire Lord (Warlord) ++Spirit Gale ++Vial of Manticore Venom (bonus from Battalion)
Battleline 20 Skeletons (Galletian Veterans)
10 Skeletons (Galletian Veterans)
10 Grave Guard (Galletian Veterans) ++Greatblades
Other 5 Black Knights (Warlord)
3 Vyrkos Blood-born (Warlord)
Grand Strategy: Empire of Corpses
Total Points: 975
This is the list I used in my last game, with the intent that I don't need to learn any new units this way. I still don't have any Dire Wolves, so that's an aspect of Vyrkos I won't be able to take advantage of.
My opponent was running Kharadron Overlords. As I recall, it was something like this:
Sky-Port: Barak Murder-you-on-the-charge
Leaders Admiral ++Arcane Tome
Aether Khemist ++ Spell in a bottle (Purple Sun)
Aetheric Navigator
Battleline (I assume) 3 Skywardens
3 Skywardens
3 Endrinriggers
Behemoths Frigate ++Cannon ++Flagship
Grand Strategy: Keep the Frigate Alive (and also kill all enemy flying units)
It's sort of the opposite of my list - everything is fast and small units, while mine's slow and large.
Mission and Deployment
The mission ended up being Jaws of Gallet, the one where each round after the first the player going second can nominate an objective to be removed. I set up the table as a ruined city, with quite a lot of small pieces of ruins terrain laid out on a mat covered in cobbled roads. I'd intended for this to be a way to get the terrain out of the box prior to my opponent arriving, but he was happy with the layout (and naturally got to pick territory). Plus it's nice to play on a map that makes cohesive sense!
I deployed somewhat conservatively - the small unit of skeletons hanging back to hold my home objective, Black Knights and the Wight King on the left flank to run up and take the Northwest objective on turn one, the Necromancer and large Skeleton unit on the right flank to push for the Southeast objective, and the Vampire Lord and Blood-born taking the centre. The Grave Guard went into the grave, having been too slow to really help in previous games.
My opponent put his Navigator and Frigate on his back objective (Northeast), and everything else in the boat. I immediately worried about how I was ever going to catch these jerks.
Round 1
My opponent got priority, and gave me the first turn. I immediately advanced on both flanks and up the centre, taking four Objectives and scoring the Cunning Manoeuvre Battle Tactic (for getting my Necromancer onto the Southeast objective, which was in both our territories). Spirit Gale and Mystic Shield both failed to cast, heralding a depressingly familiar start to my spellcasting for the game.
I jumped the Grave Guard out 9" away from my opponent's Navigator, hoping for a long charge to take him out early. Alas, a 7 rerolled into a 7, and they sat around in front of the entire enemy army looking very vulnerable instead.
My opponent got things rolling on his turn, disembarking the Admiral and Khemist and moving them towards the centre objective, taking it from me (as the Admiral counts as 2 models, and either not all of my vampires were quite in range or we miscounted). Meanwhile, the Frigate itself advanced on my Necromancer's contingent, blasting away some of his defensive Skeletons. The Navigator sat on the Northeast point, and started slowing/damaging my units and giving a movement boost to the Frigate like a jerk. Also, the Khemist killed some of my Grave Guard and dropped the Purple Sun on my Blood-born.
The frigate charged my Skeleton Horde (with some of them reassembling in front of it), and both units of Skywardens piled out. Here I made another mistake, forgetting that the Necromancer can offload wounds onto nearby Summonable units, and one unit of Skywardens decided that they weren't having any of that 5+ Ward nonsense and murdered him. Ah well, he wasn't much of a minion anyway. The Skeletons held out though, and put a wound on each of the Skywarden units.
Round 2
My opponent won priority and decided to go for the double turn. Oof.
The Navigator chipped a few more wounds off the Blood-born and the Grave Guard, the Khemist likewise fumigating my wights. The Frigate remained in combat, though one unit of Skywardens peeled off to deal with my backline Skeleton unit. The Admiral charged my Blood-born, killing them outright but straying into pile-in territory of my Vampire Lord, who proceeded to beat him around the head with a mace for a little bit. The Skeleton Horde remained "strong", recovering plenty of models in the combat phase and then being reduced to a single unit champion remaining. This could have gone a lot worse. (Good thing that conniving Necromancer was dead, I might have lost the Skeletons if he'd been offloading wounds onto them!)
On my turn, I removed the objective my opponent's Navigator was sitting on. That'll tech him! I also used the Genera's Handbook Heroic Action Strike At The Opening to fight in the Hero Phase with my Vampire Lord, dealing a little more damage to the enemy Admiral. That guy is very durable! More skeletons regenerated, though tragically my Grave Guard weren't close enough to my Vampire Lord to recover any models. I also managed to actually cast Spirit Gale this time, chipping wounds off every enemy and slaying one Skywarden from each unit thanks to previous damage.
My cavalry swept in from the left, taking back the centre control point and giving me more lovely victory points. I had the Wight King hang back an inch or two to continue contesting the Northwest objective too. In the combat phase, many Skeletons reassembled, and my Vampire Lord weathered a beating but finally finished off the Admiral (immediately recovering damage taken thanks to The Hunger), scoring me The Choicest Vintage. Also, the sole surviving Grave Guard charged the Khemist, though failed to do anything of note.
Round 3
I won priority. Time for a counter double turn!
This turn I forgot to pick a Battle Tactic. My opponent was kind enough to let me pick one randomly when I remembered at the start of the combat phase, but there was no chance of completing This One's Mine by then.
A few key things happened this turn. First, I was reminded that Objectives in Age of Sigmar are sticky, and you don't have to leave units on them. Second, my opponent removed my backline (Southwest) objective, freeing up my Skeletons to move even if it wasn't sticky. Thirdly, my opponent got fed up of the Purple Sun and dispelled it - it was sitting in the centre of the board and making it risky for him to move his troops nearby, while I was basically ignoring it. (I failed to cast anything so his Navigator had a dispel left.)
I began moving my Skeletons towards the centre, while the Skeleton Horde continued to regenerate itself (and also move to retake the Southeast objective, now that it had enough models again). My Black Knights continued to sweep eastward, flattening the Khemist with 7 Mortal Wounds on the charge, and my Vampire Lord charged back South to deal with the separated unit of Skywardens, wiping them out in a single round.
My opponent Flew High with the Frigate, transporting the remaining unit of Skywardens and the Endrinriggers close to the Northwest objective. His Navigator slowed my cavalry contingent to a crawl, and plinked the last Wound off the Grave Guard in the Hero phase - I responded by immediately re-summoning them at the end of the Movement phase to contest the Northwest objective (and to distract from everything shooting my Wight King).
The Grave Guard ate a lot of fire, though not enough to save the mounted Wight King from taking enough fire to kill him too. That hurt, I needed units that can actually do damage. There wasn't much (or any?) combat this turn, just a lot of my important units getting shot. Ouch.
Round 4
I won priority, and so we didn't have a double turn this time!
On the other hand, my opponent removed the Southeast objective, leaving my Skeleton Horde hanging around a big hole in the ground rather than delicious loot. This turn, with thin pickings for Battle Tactics, I chose Endless Nightmare - unfortunately, my big unit of Skeletons was up to 14 models by this point; I'd need to revive four in the Hero Phase and then pass the 25% chance to reassemble the other two in the Combat Phase.
I pushed my forces towards the centre of the battlefield, my Vampire Lord flying 11" to catch up with the two units of skeletons, and my Wight King popping back out of the grave to get even more control on the central point. The Black Knights attempted a long charge at the Frigate, hoping to wipe out one of the units inside with a good set of Mortals, but even with a reroll they couldn't make it in. To make matters worse, I only revived one Skeleton in the combat phase, failing my Battle Tactic. All in all, I scored only a single point this turn, and things started to look grim.
In my opponent's turn, he chipped wounds off my cavalry with the Navigator again, shot the Black Knights off the table, and disembarked the Skywardens to take the central Objective. There was also a bunch of shooting at my Wight King, but in cover and with Finest Hour up he weathered the storm this time.
Round 5
My opponent won priority again, leading to the most double turns I've seen in a single game of AoS. I also completely forgot to remove an objective this round, leading to extra points scored for my opponent - whoops.
The Skywardens went Northwest to contest that objective against emerging Black Knights - my opponent had to choose between running (and preventing my Knights from taking the objective from him if they emerged on his turn by contesting it) or not running (and hoping that their ranged weapons would be enough to sweep the Knights if they showed up this turn). He chose not to run, resulting in only a single Skywarden being within 6" of the Objective. As it was, the Black Knights did not emerge this turn (I rolled for it though, which was probably a mistake).
The Frigate and the Endrinriggers then charged Wight King and both units of Skeletons. With everything together, (and a series of unlucky saves) the Wight King died again, leaving my opponent in control of both objectives. It was going to come down to the Vampire Lord to save the day.
On my turn I selected Eye for an Eye as the only Battle Tactic I really had a hope of completing. I needed to kill either the Frigate (unlikely, but wins me the game at this point) or the Endrinriggers (much more likely, but I wasn't sure it'd be enough), while also getting enough skeletons onto the central point to take it and getting my Black Knights back to take the Northwest objective. Yikes.
I started strong by casting Grinding Teeth of Gallet on the central Objective, catching the Frigate, Endrinriggers, and my Skeletons (oh no, not the skeletons). And then I flubbed all the rolls, resulting in no Mortal Wounds to anybody. Total effective spells cast this game: 1.
Next up, I moved the Vampire Lord into position for a 3" charge into the Frigate and successfully brought back the Black Knights! That's the Northwest Objective taken care of, along with my Grand Strategy.
Finally, the combat phase. The Vampire Lord made his charge, and immediately rolled five misses for his attacks. Oof. So much for taking out the Frigate. Due to poor positioning on my part, both units of skeletons had to split attacks between the Frigate and the Endrinriggers, though the Horde did manage to pile in close enough to the objective to take that for me too. It came down to the wire, but with Crimson Feast and All Out Attack active, the Horde also managed to kill off the last two Endrinriggers, scoring my last grasp of points!
Final result: 22 - 22, Draw
I definitely made mistakes this game, but so did my opponent. I'm happy with the result - there were a lot of things that happened that could have swung it one way or the other, and in the end a draw honestly feels like a hard-fought victory!
Learning points
Battle Tactics are a really fiddly part of the game. I don't even have the six Vampire ones memorised, never mind the eight other options! That's definitely going to be a sticking point for me learning this game properly.
I really like the Vampire Lord, though I can definitely see why people like taking Legion of Blood for them - extra casting ability and more attacks would both have been very useful in this game. They're also not quite as damaging in combat as I keep thinking they are, which is something I'll have to keep in mind.
On the topic of casting: oof. One successful spell over the course of the game is not what I'd been hoping to see. Granted, some of those were dispelled by the Navigator, but I think I missed casting well over half of them in the first place - and losing the Necromancer early on didn't help with that. I feel like I'd like to be the magically dominant faction in most matchups (outside Tzeentch or Lizardmen), so more wizards might be the way to go. Or at least the Arcane Tome on the Wight King.
Vyrkos really didn't do much for me this game, though what it did do may have kept me in it. The 5+ Ward on the Skeleton Horde helped out on turn one, when the most damage was incoming; while the Wight King counting as seven models forced my opponent to make some riskier plays to take the central objective from me. I never managed to chain activate heroes and units, and as mentioned earlier I don't have the models for summoned wolves yet. I think I'll try out Legion of Blood next time for better Vampires.
I almost completely wasted the Grave Guard this game. A unit of ten Skeletons would have done better in their position. I think I need to keep them in the grave a little longer - if I'd brought them out a turn later they could have easily deleted the Navigator for me. (They were still useful for taking fire, but I'd rather not spend 140pts to do that when 85 would suffice!)
Kharadron Overlords are frustrating to fight against, but also Skeletons seem to be a great counter to them - coming back in the Combat phase means you can regenerate a lot of the damage that they do with shooting.
The Navigator is an incredible utility piece too - moving ships, dealing Mortal Wounds, and most annoyingly halving the speed of my units to stop them getting where I needed them to go. I know it's only based on rolls of one and six, but with a reroll each turn (from a command, I think? Or possibly an artefact.) he was able to get both effects off every round damaging multiple units.
The Frigate was cool, if infuriating. My opponent attempted to drop bombs with it in the movement phase exactly once, and came to the same conclusion I did about moving across enemy units: it's basically impossible. Doubtless there's some professional strategy for doing it consistently, but it looks to me like you'd have to start 3" away and fly over no more than 1" of model to get the frigate to fly over a unit given its base size.
We completed the game in somewhere over three hours. Not bad given that I'm still learning all the rules, but definitely something to work on.
Anyway, thanks for reading, and I hope this was enjoyable. I'm always open to advice - I know I've got a lot to learn about how the army works!
Next step: paint all the skeletons!
