| || | submitted by IndieRex to wildbeyondwitchlight [link] [comments]
Welcome to Part 16 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
Greetings travelers of the frigid expanse of Yon! When we last left off, the party had made their way up into the Shimmerstorm Mountains and taken a rest for the evening.
Today we will cover the party's continued journey through the mountains as they meet the korreds of Lockbury Henge, descend into a new location known as The Howling Mines, and finally encounter the small but industrious brigganocks. As a reminder from last time, we are skipping the Fey Beacons location as I am breaking up that content into parts elsewhere. Let's dive in!
Lockbury Henge https://preview.redd.it/tjgivz62gbra1.png?width=1000&format=png&auto=webp&s=a773744fcfef40bf9cfe2682e3c57c804deb4b42
Lockbury Henge is a great time to level up
your players to Level 7, though I leave it to you whether this is when they first arrive at the megaliths or once they say their goodbyes to the korreds.
We'll be running this area a bit differently as we can make this area more of a hub for select events:
- The initial mystery of the campfire and standing stones will remain the same. Instead of an Insight check to solve the gameboard though, I flashed up a game of chess where there was only one move left to win (these are common puzzles you can find online known as "checkmates in one"). That part is entirely optional though.
- I also felt it was a bit too easy to get into combat with the korreds, which I wanted to avoid, so consider making their threshold for attacking the party higher than the book describes
- Once Queen Argantle emerges and befriends the party, instead of having everything take place at the standing stones, I had her invite and lead the group back a short distance to the nearby korred settlement to talk (see below), as well as serve as the location where the Distant Racket and Korred Dance events play out
The Korred Village
Read the following as Argantle and the group arrive:
As you follow Queen Argantle, you soon find yourself standing in front of a small village of sorts nestled into the side of a mountain. The homes here are made of stone, each with a beautifully decorated roof made of intricately designed tiles. It's clear that a lot of care and attention has gone into their creation. There are dozens of Korreds, each with their signature wild black hair, milling about and glancing in your direction.
Queen Argantle will leads the party into one of the dwellings, the interior of which is simple, with the furniture all crafted from stone. She will invite the party to sit and shares the information from the book that she would typically give at Lockbury Henge itself.
As the discussion continues, at this point the "Distant Racket" event should play out as Argantle heads outside to investigate and subsequently also shares the info listed there as well as the additional pieces below:
Queen Argantle is happy to host the party in her home Gleam
- Given the feud with the brigganocks, Argantle would be very grateful if the party could drive off the creatures. They live deep in The Howling Mines, which is where the party would need to go next anyway if they are seeking to head towards the Winter Palace.
- She notes that the while the mines hold very valuable gems, the korreds steer clear due to the creatures that call it home (as well as the brigganocks of course)
- Past The Howling Mines is Motherhorn, the home of Bitter End, and also on the way to the palace. If they are indeed heading in that direction then she encourages them to speak with Gleam who is also staying here in the village. She will point to a slender figure wearing a crescent moon mask standing on an outcrop of rock
- Note: As a reminder we purposefully removed Gleam from the intro to Yon and moved her here!
- She offers the hospitality of the village to the group, noting they are free to stay the night as well as explore if they desire.
If the players seek out the high elf acrobat, she will beseech them for help. They may notice though that she's missing her shadow...
Gleam will share the following:
Things To Do
- Endelyn Moongrave, who the korreds call Bitter End, snipped off Gleam’s shadow using a pair of magic scissors and has imprisoned her twin sister, Glister, at Motherhorn.
- The twins worked as an acrobatic duo, and they used to be star performers in the Witchlight Carnival. Gleam wants to free her sister and find a way back to the carnival, but has been waiting here struggling to come up with a plan to do so
- If the players offer to help she can share some helpful information
- Endelyn looks into the future. She believes from her visions that her own demise will occur during an eclipse.
- Since the Selenelion twins are the living embodiment of the moon and the sun, the hag decided to separate the elf sisters, releasing one while keeping the other as her “guest.” By keeping the twins apart, the hag hopes to forestall her doom.
- Hurly, a bugbear, made a bargain with Endelyn and is quite unhappy with how things played out. Now he is forced to perform in her morbid theater. Like Gleam, Hurly used to work for Mister Witch and Mister Light, though Gleam and her sibling had already left the carnival by the time Hurly and his brother Burly arrived.
- At your discretion you may have Gleam offer to join them as a guide to Motherhorn. She will explain that if the party is intending to get to the palace, the only way is through Motherhorn
While in the village, the party should find that while they're not merchants per say, the korreds do have some of their craftwork available for sale (1 of each):
- Sending Stones (Dungeon Master's Guide): 100 gp
- Stone of Good Luck (Basic Rules): 500 gp
- Potion of Stone Giant Strength (Basic Rules): 500 gp
Additionally, I placed the "Goblin Procession" random event here as well when the group was walking through the town. You'll notice the goblins raise a korred spirit, so it seemed like a good fit and I simply changed the Dead Ringers from being goblins to korreds.
While I chose not to use it at all, this could also be a good place for the Evil Kite event (but again swapping out the goblins for korreds). Staying the Night
If the characters take a long rest in town I recommend having this event play out. It's an alternative take on an idea from Korred Clans by Dan Kahn
. On that note, if you're looking to expand this area even further, Dan's supplement dives into all of the different clans.
During the evening the players should hear the shuffling of multiple pairs of hooves outside. This is a group of young korreds, one of a which with a shaved head, trying poorly to sneak outside. If the party confronts them they will explain that:
- The korred with shaved head is Yaja, and the unofficial leader of the group. Yaja's head was shaved as a punishment by Bitter End for the korreds non-compliance in collecting hair for the hag
- They unsurprisingly are very angry with Endelyn and want to erect a giant stone statue in the village square mocking the hag, while also reminding the clans about their honor and passion
- If the party agrees to help then it's a three step process. As long as two or more of the steps are a success then the group creates an inspiring piece of art. For each step either call for a check (DC of 15) to determine if they are successful or just let the players get creative and award a success that way
- 1) Design it!: A player can help or take the lead on designing the statue. This could be a Charisma check
- 2) Build it!: A player can help or take the lead on the actual carving of the statue. This could be a Dexterity check using a relevant tool proficiency
- 3) With pizazz!: A player can put those important finishing touches on the statue to truly strike deep into the hearts of those who look upon it. This could be the use of an item or spell or even a Performance check
- In the morning when the village wakes and sees the statue, if the build was a success, they will be taken with it and inspired. At this point I would recommend playing out the "Korred Dance" event from the book, and perhaps awarding inspiration to the party!
The Howling Mines
Once the party is ready to depart, Queen Argantle and/or Gleam and guide the group to the nearby entrance down into the interior of the mountains to The Howling Mines and the next step on their journey. https://preview.redd.it/c5u76d4hgbra1.png?width=736&format=png&auto=webp&s=aa3867cc4780dac86eb4341a56807548bb82c811
When the group enters read the following:
As you step into The Howling Mines, the first thing you notice is a low, mournful wail that seems to echo from everywhere and nowhere at once. The rocky walls are lined with massive, shimmering stones that glow with an inner light that fills the cavern with a soft, otherworldly radiance of blues and purples.
The path ahead is wide and well-defined, presumably the handiwork of the miners that once worked here. It winds through the caverns and tunnels in a series of switchbacks and gradual inclines with sturdy wooden beams acting as supports for the earth overhead.
The walls inside the mines are made of solid rock and are on average 30 feet tall. An examination of the walls reveals a cluster of 1d3 leaves of moonwort, a silver-leaved herb that when consumed makes the user become partially incorporeal for 1 hour. While partially incorporeal, the creature has resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.
Once inside there is a single winding path for the players to follow deeper into the mines. A Treacherous Path
After a short while of the party walking deeper inside and marveling at the interior read the following:
The path ahead of you narrows, the walls now tightly closed in from both sides while icicles hang down from the ceiling to almost the floor like a maze of sharp teeth. The icicles glisten in the light of the mines, and look brittle enough to shatter at the slightest touch.
Whereas the mines have been spacious so far, there is only this narrow 10 ft high corridor ahead. With a successful DC 14 Perception check a player can discern this narrowing is temporary, and the passage opens back up soon after. With a 20 or higher, they will hear what sounds like movement beyond the passage as well.
While the icicles hanging down the path ahead are a barrier of sorts, they can potentially be avoided. Any character who makes a successful DC 15 Acrobatics or Stealth check can weave through icicles or duck down and make it out to the other side without breaking any. On a failure, a character knocks into a set of icicles causing them to break off and crash to the ground. This will alert crystalline sentinels and lookouts ahead in the next room to the party's presence, causing them to immediately attack once the players come out the other side.
Once through the obstacle, the players will be be brought into a path continuing deeper into the mines. I used this map
by FairyTale Maps to represent it. There are 3 crystalline sentinels
and 5 crystalline lookouts
(see below) that will attack any intruders, but if the players successfully did not break any of the icicles, the party will be not be spotted by the creatures when they first arrive. These golems once were tasked with overseeing work done here in the mines, but this area has long been stripped and abandoned for greener pastures.
You might allow your players to bypass fighting the crystalline sentinels and lookouts altogether if they have a way to sneak by. If they are defeated though, an examination of the bodies of the crystalline creatures will provide chunks of ore worth 50 gp for each sentinel and 20 gp for each lookout.
A search of the area should also uncover the following:
https://preview.redd.it/clike37ogbra1.png?width=150&format=png&auto=webp&s=ebf2ccf3f7460ede65e5b536ce359051c3cbb449 https://preview.redd.it/fadoltwogbra1.png?width=812&format=png&auto=webp&s=b2b964332910a3c9d04d3cd6f0535d8b67110326 https://preview.redd.it/yf06grupgbra1.png?width=158&format=png&auto=webp&s=78138361693102eaf999b0b19290d19080e83573 https://preview.redd.it/3fw15epqgbra1.png?width=823&format=png&auto=webp&s=394711f7edc4d47c7229fb2fdb42188878a8f603 Gorgenal, the Mummer
- A set of crates filled with supplies including a set of climbing gear, a hooded lantern, 5 flasks of oil, and a miscellaneous assortment of picks, shovels, and hammers
- A single healer's kit with 1d10 charges remaining
- [If did you not sell one in Vale Crossing] Lightning-Catching Bottle (from The Griffon’s Saddlebag)
- A faded note written in Sylvan. It appears to be a note to remember a six digit combination of sorts, but due to the fading only the middle numbers are visible which are 5 - 6.
Soon after making their way past the golems, the party will come across a chamber with a locked thick iron door that blocks their progress further into the mine.
On the walls of the room, there is a panel with six levers (that can only be moved in the up or down position; they start up by default) labeled with numbers from 1 to 6 and a single button. The players must figure out the correct sequence of levers to pull in order to unlock the door (which is 4-2-5-6-1-3). The button resets all of the levers back to the up position.
As they search the room, there are three main clues to solve the puzzle but you can feel free to add more as needed:
- A DC 12 Investigation check shows a heavy traffic of footprints leading from other areas of the chamber to level #4 and then fading from there, suggesting 4 is the first number. There is a similar pattern from lever 3 to the iron door, demonstrating that it’s the last one.
- The note from the crate in the prior room. If they missed it you can have it be here.
- A strange clicking sound comes from behind the levers when a lever is pulled in the correct order. By trial and error, they should be able to determine the order of levers 2 and 1.
Once past the door, read the following:
The faint sound of a lively tune in the distance echoes through the chamber. The music leads you to a hooded figure, their fingers expertly dancing over the holes of a flute. The man is slender with a sharp nose and dressed in a patchwork of mismatched furs and hides.
As you approach, the figure stops playing and turns to face you all, a mischievous grin on his face. "Well, well, well," he says, rubbing his hands together. "It seems I have stumbled upon quite a find. And what brings you to these dark, dreary mines, hmm? Treasure? Glory?"
A player with a passive perception of 16 or higher will notice Gorgenal does not cast a shadow. This is because it was severed by Endelyn's Scissors of Shadow Snipping
, though he will not share as much. If the players introduce themselves, the man will do so in kind:
"I am Gorgenal of the Greyhawk Mummers," he says in a sly voice and with a slight bow. "Perhaps you've heard of me?"
As mentioned earlier, as we are not using the Fey Beacons section I am breaking that content into other sections, starting with one of the mummers, Gorgenal, who - unlike the book, is not a peryton.
Gorgenal will share the following information:
- He is a member of the Greyhawk Mummers, a group of actors and pantomimists from the Free City of Greyhawk on the world of Oerth. He serves as the group's jester, but admits the role has lost its luster
- As per the book, the other members of the troupe are Archillus and Mortia - the leading male and leading female of the group, Verna (Mortia’s bitter understudy), Mauldower (an old-timer who believes his cohorts are amateurs), Angara (the troupe’s matriarchal dame), Carthasar (a method actor), and Thornelia (a minstrel)
- Their group was heading to a show when they lost their way in the woods. When they emerged they found themselves in the Feywild. It wasn't soon after that they learned of a powerful woman seeking actors - what could be a better opportunity?
- Unfortunately their performance for Endelyn did not go well, and whereas the rest of his troupe were turned into perytons - birds with antlers, Evelyn found Gorgenal amusing and brought him into her service
- Endelyn is obsessed with the theatre and can see visions of the future
- A fierce dragon is said to dwell deeper in the mines - something he'll make light of despite the danger
- "Just a friendly warning - there's a dragon in these mines, and I doubt it'll be thrilled to have visitors. So unless you want to be toasted like a marshmallow, I suggest you be careful!"
Gorgenal will also mix in the following lies. Uncovering his falsehoods requires a successful DC 18 Insight check, and if a character fails a check it will put Gorgenal on guard, causing any future Insight checks to have disadvantage
Gorgenal is not to be trusted
- Endelyn has tasked him with collecting cold iron from the Brigganocks and he was on his way to their mine when he came across the party. He would be happy to guide them there
- Truth: Evelyn has sent him to the mines to watch over the dragon Zephyrum that nests in the mines. Gorgenal uses the dragon to keep the brigganocks in line as they collect cold iron on her behalf. He has also been ordered to dispose of any outsiders and plans to lead the party into a trap
- He does not know any details about the dragon in the mine - it is just a rumor he heard and he's given it a wide berth
- He will offer to sell potions of Winter's Ward for 25 gp each or an equivalent trade that he claims provide resistance to cold damage for 1 hour. He describes them as a mixture of snowdrop petals and crushed ore.
- Truth: The potions will instead make the drinker vulnerable to cold damage for 1 hour which could be discerned with the identify spell
If the party accepts his help as a guide, he leads them down a series of twists and turns, dodging and weaving through the mines until they reach:
A narrow stream of water winds through the ground here, shimmering in a spectrum of colors from vibrant teal to deep purple. A statue of carved of ice sits at the end of the stream. The statue depicts a humanoid creature with thick fur covering its body and its hands are elongated into long claws through which the water releases down into the stream like a miniature waterfall.
- The statue depicts a brigganock and you can have a character make a DC 16 Nature or History check to determine if they recognize it. The stream was put here to act as a place of refreshment for brigganock miners when they worked in this area in the past.
- Anyone that drinks directly from the stream must succeed on a DC 12 Constitution saving throw. On a success they gain 10 temporary hit points that last until the character takes a long rest. Otherwise they are poisoned for 1 hour and do not gain the temporary hit points.
As the group follows Gorgenal deeper into the mines, they start to hear the faint, haunting sound that seems to be coming from all around them become louder. He tells them not to worry, saying that it's just the wind howling through the tunnels and the reason for its namesake. In fact though he is leading them to a trap as per his orders to kill outsiders that might interfere with Endelyn's efforts in the mines.
The potential exception here is if the party showed any interest in stagecraft and taking part in Endelyn's plays. In that case he may be inclined to safety lead them out to Brigganock Mine and give directions to Motherhorn. The Ambush
Soon after the path leads into a small chamber of the mines filled with a light fog. The trap consists of a ghost of the mines
(see below) and three shadow (variants)
that are shadows snipped by Endelyn. While the howling noises of the mines are indeed a natural phenomenon - the increase in volume here is from the ghost. At your discretion one of the shadows could be Gleam's, which means it's destruction would lead to the restoration of the imprisoned Gleam's actual shadow.
As soon as the fighting begins Gorgenal will drink a potion of invisibility. https://preview.redd.it/cj54phizgbra1.png?width=823&format=png&auto=webp&s=2895f1f23063db85d3fd8dffa419318496b4e945 You can use this map for the ambush encounter The Mineshaft
Once out of the ambush on their own, it will take the party a few more hours of travel through the mines until they reach the final chamber.
Light spills through an opening in the rock wall in this large chamber clearly marking the path forward. While a clear exit lays ahead of you, there is also a large, vertical platform that sits in the back of the room with an intricate control panel set into it.
The platform is a steam powered elevator that leads down to a lower level of the mines where the dragon Zephyrum nests.
- The panel has a key slot, a dial, and two buttons (arrow up, arrow down)
- The dial controls the speed, while the arrows send the platform lift up and down
- The panel is inactive without the key
When the key is entered (which can be found in Brigganock Mine later) the panel will shudder, releasing a puff of steam as it activates. You may also allow a successful DC 22 Dexterity check using thieves’ tools to activate it, but if your party is injured you may want to disallow it as the dragon lurking in the depths may mean death.
The exit meanwhile leads directly to Brigganock Mine, which is most likely course of the action here. Zephyrum's Lair
If the party takes the elevator from the mine shaft down, they are brought into a lower level of the mines.
As you make your way in, you come across a small alcove that has been converted into a living area of sorts. A bedroll has been laid out on the ground next to a small fire pit and an assortment of basic supplies.
This is Gorgenal's home for the nights where he is keeping watch over the mine and Zephyrum. As the party examines the area, eight winged beasts with antlers will circle and wheel around them, before landing and watching them quizzically. If the players learned of the perytons from Gorgenal and aren't putting two and two together that these are his old troupe, allow a DC 12 History check to connect the dots on their behalf.
If the party has a spell such as speak with animals
they can learn of the peryton's plight, and that they have stayed near their old partner Gorgenal out of boredom. If not, consider placing a scroll of the spell among Gorgenal's belongings - he may need to speak with them on occasion after all. The perytons will also share that:
- The perytons were once a troupe of actors called the Greyhawk Mummers. Endelyn invited them to Motherhorn, where they performed pantomimes. When their popularity made them haughty and difficult to control, Endelyn locked them up. When they begged to be set free, the hag honored their request by releasing them into the wild—but only after she turned them into perytons. The transformation deprived them of speech, yet they retain their theatrical behavior and long for a performance or the opportunity to perform
- Endelyn has enrolled a quite promising actress who goes by Charmay who has seemingly replaced them in Endelyn's affections
- If the party shares any of the lies from Gorgenal, they will provide the truth of those answers
As in the book, the characters can ask the perytons to perform one of their favorite pantomimes. The perytons are taken aback, in a good way, by the request and appreciate the opportunity to entertain a crowd. They perform a pantomime show, then take their bows silently. If everyone in the party claps or cheers, the perytons are thrilled. If one or more party members fail to clap or cheer after the perytons perform, the perytons become furious and may warn Zephyrum and Gorgenal of the party's arrival.
Similarly, the characters can also impress the perytons by putting on a performance of their own. Impressing the perytons requires the performing characters to succeed on a DC 15 Charisma (Performance) group check. Any character who received an acting lesson from Candlefoot in the Witchlight Carnival has advantage on this check. If the group check succeeds, the perytons regard the characters as kindred spirits.
In the case of a good show (by the mummers or the party), the perytons will warn them of the dragon and Gorgenal being further ahead. As a part of this they will share the dragon's resistances and immunities and its main abilities (tunneler, spider climb, debilitating breath, hold person). Zephyrum
After a short trek past the camp site read the following (though if the group was warned by the mummers and is being sneaky, you may choose to exclude the last sentence):
As you venture deeper, you are suddenly confronted by a massive, fearsome creature that bursts out from the rock wall with a fierce roar. Its scales are a deep, iridescent blue that shimmer and sparkle in the dim light of the mines, creating an almost mesmerizing display of color. Despite its beauty, there is no mistaking the raw, primal energy of a deadly predator that radiates from the creature's piercing gaze. Its muscles are coiled, and you can feel the cool wind of its breath on your skin as it snarls and prepares to strike.
If Gorgenal is alive, he will also be here watching over the dragon. They will both attack the party on sight. Gorgenal uses the bard
) stat block (but with a Charisma of 18, spell save DC of 16, and double the hit points), while Zephyrum is a young sapphire dragon
(Fizban's Treasury of Dragons
), though a young blue dragon
(Basic Rules; but substitute it's lightning breath for the cold breath from a young white dragon
) can work as a substitute.
If they are defeated, the players can loot Zephyrum's hoard which contains:
You can use this map for Zephyrum’s lair Cold Iron
- 4,200 (12d6 × 100) cp
- 2,100 (6d6 × 100) sp
- 280 (8d6 × 10) gp
- An enhanced Wand of Magic Missiles where each magic missile dart deals 2d4+2 damage instead
- 2d4 Feywild trinkets
- 4 Ingots of Cold Iron
Cold iron ingots can be used to craft a cold iron weapon. Recommended locations include the Woodcutter's Axe in Vale Crossing, Arctis Tor, and once the party travels back to their home city after Yon (Waterdeep for my campaign). You may choose to allow it to happen by other means - especially if you have a character well versed in smithing. It takes two ingots to enhance an existing weapon (similar to silvering a weapon), or you may choose to allow a new weapon to be made with other ingredients mixed in.
Cold iron weapons have the following properties:
- You gain a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon
- When hitting a creature of the Fey creature type with a cold iron weapon:
- The weapon's damage bypasses any resistance or immunities to Bludgeoning, Piercing, and Slashing damage
- The attack deals an extra 1d10 damage of the weapon’s type
Once out of The Howling Mines (see the mineshaft section above), the party will soon find the entrance to the Brigganock Mine (the two are connected), and should hear the tapping, etc. from the book. Things should play out as written until the confrontation with Molliver and the brigganocks where we will need to change what is told to the party.
When speaking with Molliver he will instead share the following information and will similarly order the release of any captured characters if convinced appropriately. If the party helped Elkhorn and Strongheart earlier in The Fields of Spring, they can use that to their advantage to win over Molliver.
Heading to Obud's Grotto
- He is a member of Valor's Call who was separated from his party after a confrontation with the League of Malevolence. The brigganocks found him and nursed him back to health.
- Unlike Strongheart and Elkhorn, his memory is slightly less damaged than his two partners. He can remember the appearances and names of each of the members of the League of Malevolence and is happy to share them.
- He will also mention a powerful sorceress who appeared in the middle of the battle and turned the tide against them. This was Tasha disguised as Zybilna but he doesn't know her name and can only provide her description (you can use the handout of Zybilna from Part XV when describing her)
- He won't be willing to leave the brigganocks to meet up with Strongheart and Elkhorn though unless he knows the brigganocks are safe from either the korreds or the dragon Zephyrum
- The brigganock's home is called Wish-Come-True, which is hidden here deep beneath the mountains. Its buildings are adorned with glittering gems made from cut the mines. Hidden behind thick rock walls and powerful illusions, it can never be found by outsiders, nor can it be scried upon using divination magic.
- The brigganocks are happy to have Molliver as their spokesperson and chief advisor when it comes to dealing with outsiders.
- Note: I just replaced the brigganock home/grotto with Wish-Come-True. It didn't really make sense to have a separate city that doesn't show at all in the campaign
- If the party is looking to get to the palace they should meet with Obud in the Mining Lodge (Obud's Grotto) on the outskirts of Wish-Come-True. Obud is the keeper of the secret path to Motherhorn, which is on the way to Arctis Tor. Obud is the oldest brigganock here and thus in charge - he handles the appraising and inspection of gemstones
Once pleasantries are done, Molliver and the brigganocks will lead the group back towards Wish-Come-True to meet with Obud. During the trek, Molliver will share the additional tidbits:
- He introduces the brigganocks near him as Trig, Zarli, Oyla, and Ajak. The mines are their livelihood. It would be a violation of the rules of ownership to take gems from the mine walls
- The brigganocks work their mine at all hours because they know the noise aggravates the korreds and also because Lyn forces them to provide her with a cut of their mining yield. A man named Gorgenal comes regularly to collect
- Creeping Lyn kidnapped the brigganocks’ best architect, Golmo, who now toils in Arctis Tor, the Winter Palace, designing new contraptions for her (note: not Motherhorn!)
- The korreds provide Creeping Lyn with locks of their magic hair, which she uses to build her contraptions (this of course is partially false. She cuts the korreds’ hair without their consent; they are not her allies, but he doesn't know this)
During this trip, I recommend having the Pageant Wagon random event take place, traveling in the opposite direction. The brigganocks ignore the wagon who comes by often and apparently travels all across Yon - also none of them are interested in acting. For the scene I might recommend the fight with the yeti as a good option. Instead of a ticket though, I would have the figure hand out leaflets similar to the ones found in Vale Crossing:
- Casting Call
- Seeking actors and actresses of all races and ages. Come audition at Motherhorn, the grand amphitheater of Yon and make a name for yourself across the Feywild
- This is an unpaid opportunity
In the book the party needs to traverse Rivenwish Chasm to reach the grotto. I would instead just have the party be led directly there. Instead you can have the chasm be an obstacle on the player's path out of the mines and back out to the other side of the Shimmerstorm Mountains. If you do choose to use it I recommend this edit
Once at the grotto things will play out mostly the same except:

- In addition to the gems laid out in front of him, there should also be one cold iron ingot there as well (worth 200 gp)
- Rather than sweets and the like I had Obud ask the party to defeat the dragon Zephyrum in mines in exchange for the secret tunnel. The dragon is used by Gorgenal to force them to work for Creeping Lyn. He can provide the key to the mineshaft elevator
- He should also explain the concept of wish stones and perhaps even show one as an example. One thing I changed is that if you touch a wish stone for the first time you can visualize the wish. For the example I used a tidbit from this supplement:
- "You see huge stage with an enormous crowd watching eagerly. On the stage is a lone bugbear (Hurly), who is expected to deliver a pleasing performance to the packed crowd, who seem impossible to please. Hurly is visibly struggling with his lines and wishes to be free."
Once the party has defeated Zephyrum (or otherwise convinced Obud), he will lead the party to a permanent illusion in the basement wall of the lodge. This secret tunnel leads out of the mines and back out to the Shimmerstorm Mountains near Motherhorn. As an additional reward I had Obud allow each party member to take a stab at mining. Each player should roll a D12 and receive the reward below (based on tool proficiencies you may allow a +1 or +2 to the roll):
- 1 - 3: Obsidian (opaque black) stone worth 10 gp
- 4 - 5: Onyx (opaque bands of black and white) worth 25 gp
- 6 - 7: Jasper (opaque blue) worth 50 gp
- 8 - 9: Garnet (transparent brown-green) stone worth 100 gp
- 10 - 11: Cold Iron equal to one ingot
- 12+: Cold Iron equal to two ingots
In the book this tunnel leads to M12 in Motherhorn. This is obviously no longer the case. I feel like it's fine to have the party always enter Motherhorn through the main entrance, but if you'd like to give the party the option then you can have Obud give them directions about a secret entrance outside of Motherhorn that they can use to get to M12.
A final note. The book suggests that if the korreds and brigganocks are allied an assault could be made on Motherhorn. This is less in line with the concepts we're going for (plus the play is a ton of fun) so I might avoid this altogether. An alternative for team up action could be them all helping the party to defeat Zephyrum and Gorgenal and thus free the mountains of the hag's influence.

After coming out of the mines to the other side of the Shimmerstorm Mountains, our party will find themselves at the doorstep of Motherhorn, the amphitheater of horrors. As alway

2023.04.01 18:52 Cjborange I know when every re-recorded album will be released.
(Hi all! I'm u/Cjborange
, and every year on TaylorSwift I create an April Fool's Day post with ridiculous clowning as to when the rest of the re-recordings will come out. I was sad to see the main sub is not doing the meme day tradition this year, so I decided to post all my hard work here instead. I hope you enjoy!)
The fateful day has come again, my beautiful clown friends: the day that I, u/Cjborange
, reveal the exact dates on which singer-songwriter Taylor Swift will re-release each of her old records. I must confess that, going into this year, I was afraid even to begin piecing together the pieces of Ms. Swift’s intensely detailed puzzle. Last year I expended every last morsel of my genius for the purpose of calculating the dates on which Ms. Swift will release these albums, and there were moments during the last year when I thought I simply could not do such a thing again. But it is my relentless duty to persist in the face of hardship. I knew I had to run further calculations, find further clues. I knew I could never stop.
It has been hours, my friends. Hours of blood, sweat, and tears. The clues did not come easy. They were purposefully placed as mysteriously and cryptically as possible, where only the most intelligent fan would be able to decode them. Indeed, the sheer intellectual power I have used in the creation of this post far exceeds all mere clowning usually seen within the Taylor Swift fandom.
I must clarify, as I do every year, that these are not merely predictions. Predictions arise from nothing, meaning nothing, mere guesses as to when Ms. Swift will pull the proverbial trigger and re-release each album. As you will see from the evidence listed below, absolutely nothing within this post qualifies as a prediction. This is cold, hard evidence. The coldest and hardest evidence you will ever see.
Thank you for reading. Here is
that evidence for your reading pleasure. Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)
Speak Now is Taylor’s third album.
3 is the atomic number of Lithium.
Lithium is used in many antidepressants.
21 million adults in the United States suffer from depression.
Twenty-one pilots is the name of a popular alt rock band.
Their lead singer was born in 1988.
1 + 9 + 8 + 8 = 26
There are currently 26 ongoing wars across the world.
War is sad.
Sadness is typically represented by the color blue.
The song “I’m Blue” was released by the band Eiffel 65.
The Eiffel tower is in France (Shoutout to French Swifties!)
Do you know what else is in France? That’s right - Guillotière Cemetery.
That cemetery contains 40,000 graves.
“Forty thousand” has thirteen letters.
There it is, clear as day: the number thirteen. Coincidence? I think not.
But we must keep going.
“Cemetery” has eight letters.
A spider has eight legs.
There are 36 unique spider species in Pennsylvania, Taylor’s home state.
36 is the latitude of Pleasant Valley State Prison. (Shoutout to Swiftie inmates of Pleasant Valley State Prison!)
That prison has a capacity for 2,308 inmates.
2 + 3 + 0 + 8 = 13
Another thirteen! We’re almost there, my friends.
Pleasant Valley state prison was opened in November 1994.
The month November starts with N. The number nine also start with N.
There it is. Nine
. The month (September
) when Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) will be released. But what day of the month will it be?
The Bejeweled music video is 5:53 long.
5 + 5 + 3 = 13.
Colorado State Highway 13 is 128 miles long.
1 + 2 + 8 = 11.
11 is the name of a major character in the show “Stranger Things”.
The most recent season of Stranger Things cost 30 million dollars per episode.
“Thirty million” has thirteen letters.
Quite frankly, the amount the number thirteen has appeared throughout this chain of reasoning is simply creepy. I knew I was on the right track when I saw this. I just had to dig a tiny bit deeper.
“Thirteen” has eight letters.
And there it is, my friends. The number eight. On September 8th
, Taylor will release Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) to the world. 1989 (Taylor’s Version)
My spirit and my willpower sagged from the immense weight of Taylor Swift’s immense puzzle. The sheer genius I had expended in calculating the encrypted release date of Speak Now TV left little resolve for the other albums – but I knew I had to continue. It is my solemn duty to descry all of Ms. Swift’s most carefully-plotted clues. Here is the evidence for the next album, 1989.
Start with the name of the album, 1989.
1 + 9 + 8 + 9 = 27.
27 is the number of letters in the Spanish alphabet.
Spain became united through the marriage of Ferdinand and Isabella in 1479.
1 + 4 + 7 + 9 = 21.
21 is the age of majority in Madagascar.
Penguins of Madagascar was released in 2014.
Do you know what else was released in 2014? That’s right – the album 1989.
This was how I knew I was on the right track. I just had to keep digging, relentlessly and courageously, for the rest of the evidence.
Penguins of Madagascar is 91 minutes long.
9 + 1 = 10.
There are ten fingers on the human hand.
“Hand” is the unit we use to measure the heights of horses.
Taylor Swift tweeted the phrase “horse shit” on March 1st, 2021.
3 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 9.
In Egyptian mythology, nine Egyptian gods judged whether Horus or Set should inherit Egypt.
The words “Horus” and “Set” have eight letters combined.
If you send eight letters in the United States, it will cost $5.04, given that each stamp costs 63 cents.
“Five dollars and four cents” has six syllables.
The first six-syllable word in alphabetical order is “abalienation”
That word has twelve letters.
Do you know what else has twelve letters? That’s right: “United States”, the country Taylor is from.
“United States” has two words.
There it is. Two
. The month (February
) when 1989 (Taylor’s Version) will be released.
I couldn’t find any more evidence for this line of reasoning. The only logical conclusion was that 2 is both the month and the day when 1989 will be re-released. There you have it, folks. February 2nd. 2024, that is. Taylor Swift (Taylor’s Version)
Perhaps in another universe, one where I was not such an incredible genius, I would have stopped after finding the release dates of Speak Now TV and 1989 TV. After all, with Taylor’s concert tour currently in progress, it will probably be a long time before the other two albums are released. But I knew I simply could not stop. The sheer intellectual power I had expended had to be going toward something, had to be toward some great end: a complete list of the release dates for all of the re-recordings. I knew I had to keep going. Here are the rest of the clues I found.
Taylor Swift named her first album Taylor Swift because her name is Taylor Swift.
That name contains eleven letters and two words.
11 – 2 = 9.
A cat has nine lives.
There are 38 cat species currently living on earth.
The 38th parallel is the pre-Korean War boundary between the two Koreas.
64% of the population of North Korea is atheist, and the North Korean Ground Force contains 7 Tank Regiments.
6 + 4 = 10, and 10 * 7 = 70.
70% of the mineral Tantalite is in Africa.
The hottest temperature in the world was recorded in Libya (an African country) in 1922.
Catch-22 is the name of a famous war novel.
War is sad.
Sadness is a major theme in Taylor Swift’s music. I knew from these clues that I was on the right track. I just had to keep digging, like I had done so indelibly and so relentlessly until this point.
Sadness is associated with increases in activity within the posterior temporal cortex.
“Posterior temporal cortex” has 23 letters.
23 people are executed in “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens.
Charles Dickens was born in 1812.
One hundred years later, in 1912, the Titanic sank.
The movie “Titanic” was released in 1997.
1 + 9 + 9 + 7 = 27, and “sinking” has 6 letters.
27 – 6 = 21.
The evidence is clear and simple. 21
is the day of the month when Taylor Swift (Taylor’s Version) will be released.
That still doesn’t tell what month the release will happen, though. I knew I was on the brink of greatness. And I was determined to keep going.
The album was originally released on 10/24/2006.
10 + 24 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 6 = 42
4 + 2 = 6
This is the month (June)
when the album will come out, making the complete release date June 21st, 2024.
The evidence is simply undeniable. Reputation (Taylor’s Version)
At last: the final album. My willpower and spirit were all but broken when it was time to calculate the date on which the re-recorded version of Swift’s iconic snake-themed pop record will be released. The clues for this album actually all come from Taylor’s most recent album, Midnights
. Was this entire record a scheme to drop more clues for the release dates of the Taylor’s Version albums? It certainly seems so.
In Lavender Haze, she says “that 1950s shit they want from me.”
Shit is 74.6% water.
7 * 4 * 6 = 168.
168 is the name of the most commonly used lab strain of Bacillus subtilus, a bacterium.
This bacterium has 4,100 genes.
4 + 1 + 0 + 0 = 5.
This will be important later; it’s the first “key number” that will lead us to the final release date. But we’re going to leave this line of reasoning and come back to it later.
In Mastermind she says, “I’m only cryptic and Machiavellian ‘cause I care.”
Niccolo Machiavelli was born on 3 May 1469.
In the year 1469, the Algo-Henseatic War began.
War is sad.
“Sad” backwards is DAS, which stands for Department of Administrative Services.
The DAS of Tennessee, the state where Taylor began her career, grants 20 types of licenses.
Tennessee receives 50 inches of precipitation annually. If you subtract the first digit of this number from 20, you get 15
This is the second key number that will lead us to the final release date. Just one more time, though, we’ve got to abandon this line of reasoning and pick up somewhere else. I promise the pieces will fall together soon enough.
In Snow on the Beach, she says, “I searched Aurora Borealis green.”
You can search for things on a phone.
The first camera phone was invented in 2000.
Do you know what else was discovered in 2000? That’s right: Minor Planet #30427, which has a diameter of only 8.2 kilometers.
This is the third and final “key number”. The ones we’ve found so far are 5, 15,
. When you multiply these numbers together, you get 2282025
There you have it.
All clear, simple, undeniable logic. Even better: all Fridays
. It is indubitable – simply undeniable
– that these are the dates on which Taylor Swift will re-release each of her remaining albums. I can’t imagine how anyone could possibly disagree with this crystal-clear reasoning.
Just wait and watch the albums come out on these exact days. I can simply guarantee it will happen.

2023.04.01 12:31 Prodiction Bitcoin Thrived on Misconceptions
A decade ago, only a few knew about bitcoin – a digital token issued by a computer program of an unknown author. Today, millions upon millions of people all around the world are buying it. Not just buying but paying tens of thousands of dollars for one piece. What caused this? Why people massively started giving up enormous amounts of money for something issued by a computer program? Well, the reason is misconceptions. Many people falsely believe that bitcoin works as money by storing value. And that bitcoin is some superior alternative to traditional monetary systems because it is decentralized, scarce, well-protected, immutable, and fast exchanged. From that, they conclude that the demand for it will constantly grow and push the price up, which is why it is necessary to get it. Here we will correct those misconceptions. For that, we only need to look at how traditional products benefit people.
In traditional markets, products traded have one of two key properties. They are either intrinsically valuable or liability instruments. Products like food, oil, gold, computer software, etc., are intrinsically valuable because they can “on their own” benefit people. Food can be eaten, oil used as energy or raw material, gold worn as jewelry or built into electronics, while software can operate computers or execute specific tasks. On the other hand, products like bonds, fiat currencies, stocks, and gold certificates don’t have intrinsic value. They cannot benefit people “on their own.” However, they are liability instruments with subjects (individuals or institutions) behind them that are legally liable to take them back or do something to benefit those who hold them.
In bonds, the subjects are bond issuers. They are legally liable to take bonds back at maturity and pay their face value. Also, they are liable to pay coupons once or twice a year. In fiat currencies, the subjects are debtors that were granted loans in the banking system. Fiat currencies represent their debt, and the debtors are legally liable to return them back to the system. To be able to do that, they must work for holders of fiat currencies, sell them goods, or provide them services. In stocks, the subjects are companies. If companies were to go out of business, they are liable to pay stockholders the net value of liquidated assets. Also, if they decide to take out their earnings, they are liable to give those earnings to shareholders in the form of dividends. Finally, in gold certificates, the subjects are their issuers. On-demand, they are liable to take back the issued certificates and give their holders a specific quantity of gold.
Now that we know how traditional products benefit people, we can turn to bitcoin. When bitcoin is issued to individuals called bitcoin miners, they neither get an intrinsically valuable product nor an instrument of liability. Bitcoin is a token stored in a distributed database called the blockchain. As such, it cannot be seen, touched, tasted, heard, smelled or used to perform specific tasks and provide benefits like intrinsically valuable products. Also, a person who developed a computer program that issues the token is not legally liable to take it back or do something to benefit miners or other token holders. This brings us to the first misconception.
Throughout all of human history, money has worked by storing value in either a physical product (a commodity) or liability. When money was a commodity, it stored value in physical products that benefited people through the consumption of their intrinsic value. When money became a gold certificate or fiat currency, it stored value in liabilities defined in contracts and other legal documents that benefited people through the satisfaction of those liabilities. There are no exceptions to that. That is how money always worked. So, if bitcoin works as money, that means it benefits people through the consumption of its intrinsic value or liability satisfaction. And this is not true. Bitcoin neither has intrinsic value nor represents liabilities that someone must satisfy. So, believing that bitcoin works as money is a misconception.
The way bitcoin really works is as a membership token in a redistribution scheme. In that scheme, new or existing members pay in traditional, benefit-providing products to pay out each other. These payments grant them a specific number of membership tokens – bitcoins. Since bitcoins store zero value, members must wait for new voluntary payments of traditional products into the scheme. If the inflow of these products stops, there is nothing to pay out members. There is no way for them to benefit. In short, bitcoin works as digital evidence that one became a member of a Ponzi-style redistribution. In all Ponzi-style redistributions, the existing intrinsically valuable products or liability instruments are redistributed among members. The Bitcoin system works the same way. It is just that it is a self-governing redistribution. Meaning it has no central operator that governs the redistribution arbitrarily and fraudulently, like in traditional Ponzi schemes. But regardless, bitcoin is not money that stores value. It is a token or evidence showing that one joined a redistribution scheme. And this brings us to the second misconception.
As the advantages of the Bitcoin system, you will hear that its tokens are decentralized, scarce, well-protected, immutable, and fast exchanged. Because of this, this system is believed to be a kind of alternative to traditional monetary systems. Or that is even superior to them. From the above, we can easily see why this is a misconception. Traditional monetary systems transfer intrinsically valuable products or liability instruments. On the other hand, the Bitcoin system transfers membership tokens. As such, it can only be an alternative or superior to traditional redistribution schemes. And it really is.
Thanks to the tokens, Bitcoin redistribution can be entered and exited quickly and repeatedly worldwide. These tokens are well-secured, and nobody can kick members out of the redistribution. It is impossible for any entity (for example, a government or corporation) to falsify data on membership. The tokens are scarce, making the stake-to-token ratio high, and the lucky ones who got them early can earn a lot in the redistribution. And on top of all that, the redistribution is anonymous. So indeed, the Bitcoin system is superior to traditional redistribution schemes.
However, the Bitcoin system has nothing to do with traditional monetary systems or money. Its tokens are neither intrinsically valuable nor liability instruments to be able to store value. All the value is stored in traditional products that are paid into the redistribution scheme. This scheme would never have gotten that big if bitcoin hadn’t been misconceived as money or an alternative to traditional money systems. In short, bitcoin thrived on misconceptions.

2023.04.01 12:03 Elina_01 Is China's economic development dependent on ASEAN?
I think China's economic development is not dependent on ASEAN, but has established a mutually beneficial economic and trade cooperation with ASEAN.
In terms of trade scale, China's bilateral trade with ASEAN reached a record high of $716.2 billion in 2020, up 7% year-on-year. China has been the largest trading partner of ASEAN for 12 consecutive years, and ASEAN has become China's top trading partner. However, China's trade with ASEAN accounts for only 14.7% of China's total trade, much lower than China's share with the EU (16.9%) and the US (15.4%). This indicates that China's foreign trade is not overly dependent on the ASEAN market, but maintains a diversified and balanced pattern.
In terms of trade structure, China's trade with ASEAN is highly complementary and synergistic. China mainly exports industrial manufactured goods such as electromechanical products, textiles and garments to ASEAN, meeting the needs of ASEAN countries in the process of industrialization and urbanization; China mainly imports resource commodities such as minerals, energy and agricultural products from ASEAN, meeting the needs of China in its economic development and improvement of people's life. In addition, China and ASEAN have formed a close cooperation in the regional value chain, which has improved the production efficiency and competitiveness of both sides through division of labor and industrial transfer.
In terms of investment scale, two-way investment between China and ASEAN has also maintained steady growth. in 2020, China's actual investment in ASEAN was US$14.8 billion, up 52.1% year-on-year, accounting for 12.4% of China's total foreign direct investment; ASEAN's actual investment in China was US$7.7 billion, up 0.7% year-on-year, accounting for 6.1% of total foreign direct investment in China. However, the investment volume between China and ASEAN is still relatively small compared to the total economic volume of both sides, especially there is still much room for improvement compared to the huge market potential and cooperation space of both sides.
In terms of cooperation mechanism, China and ASEAN have established a comprehensive, multi-level and wide-ranging economic and trade cooperation mechanism, which provides solid institutional guarantee and policy support for both sides to deepen cooperation. For example, the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area (CAFTA) was formally established in 2005, which is one of the most populous and developing countries in the world with the largest potential; the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (RCEP) was formally signed in 2020, which is the world's most populous, largest intra-regional trade scale and most diversified membership structure In addition, there are also various forms of economic and trade cooperation platforms, such as the "Belt and Road" initiative, the "Lan-Me Cooperation" mechanism and the "10+3" cooperation mechanism.
I believe that ASEAN-China economic and trade cooperation has some advantages and challenges. For example:
- Geographically advantageous, close to each other, convenient transportation, conducive to the flow of trade and investment and interconnection.
- Historical and cultural similarities and long history of friendly exchanges, which are conducive to enhancing political trust and humanistic exchanges.
- Relatively close economic development levels and complementary industrial structures are conducive to mutual benefits and common development.
- Perfect cooperation mechanism and mature free trade zone construction are conducive to creating an open and inclusive cooperation environment and rules.
- Wide range of cooperation areas, covering trade, investment, infrastructure, digital economy, green development and many other aspects, which is conducive to expanding the cooperation space and potential.
There are also challenges:
- The international situation is complex and volatile, and geopolitical competition has intensified, which may cause interference and influence on the cooperation between China and ASEAN.
- The situation of epidemic prevention and control is still severe, and the unbalanced and unstable economic recovery may bring uncertainty and risk to the cooperation between China and ASEAN.
- Development gaps and imbalances are still prominent, and there are large differences in the level of economic and social development within ASEAN and between China, which may cause obstacles and difficulties to China's cooperation with ASEAN.
- Cooperation opportunities and challenges coexist, and emerging areas such as digital economy and green development need to strengthen policy coordination and rule-making, which may bring new requirements and pressure on cooperation between China and ASEAN.
What do you all think?

2023.04.01 08:31 Bitcoinz_Tech CFO of Bitcoin Miner Marathon Digital to Step Down in May as Company Reports Significant Losses in 2022
Marathon Digital, a Bitcoin mining company, is set to lose its Chief Financial Officer, Hugh Gallagher, as he prepares to retire on May 12. The company has started searching for a replacement for Gallagher's position.
This development comes after Marathon Digital released its financial report for the fourth quarter and full year of 2022, which showed a significant increase in net losses. As of December 31, 2022, Marathon Digital's net loss for the full year of 2022 was $686.7 million, compared to $37.1 million for the full year of 2021.
Marathon Digital is one of the leading Bitcoin miners in the world, with a significant portion of its revenue coming from the mining of the cryptocurrency. The company has been working to expand its operations, and the loss it incurred in 2022 is a significant setback for its plans.
The search for a new CFO is now on, and it remains to be seen how the company will navigate the loss of its current CFO and the challenges posed by its financial results in 2022.

2023.04.01 00:43 Bitcoinz_Tech Marathon Digital's CFO Announces Retirement After One Year, Company Begins Search for Replacement
Marathon Digital Holdings, one of the largest Bitcoin mining companies in North America, has announced that its Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Michael Berg, will be retiring after one year with the company. The announcement was made on March 30, 2023, and Marathon has already started the search for Berg's replacement.
During his tenure at Marathon, Berg played a key role in the company's efforts to expand its Bitcoin mining operations. Under his leadership, Marathon acquired several mining facilities in North America and increased its Bitcoin mining capacity to over 10,000 miners.
Merrick Okamoto, Marathon's CEO, praised Berg's contributions to the company and wished him well in his future endeavors. Okamoto also stated that the company has already begun the search for a new CFO to lead the finance team and continue Marathon's growth trajectory.

2023.03.31 12:10 CandidateNrOne Denmark Supreme Court rules BTC profits to be taxed
The Supreme Court of Denmark has ruled that investors and miners who profit from selling bitcoin will be subject to taxation rules, with a 27% taxation rate for profits not exceeding $8,630 and 42% for profits above.
The central bank governor, Lars Rohde, has previously criticized BTC's volatility and lack of stability and is not keen on the digital asset market, while also being a supporter of CBDCs.
Ok, that’s nothing worrying about, as it’s a part of acceptance.
In other countries that’s even more.
In Germany ie its your personal tax rate, which is up to 46%. Here are gains taxfree, if you hold longer than 1 year.
Tl;dr: Denmark taxes crypto

2023.03.31 10:35 LeChat_Perlipopette [Feed The Beast Minecraft] mekanism V10 digital miner tag's
Salut tout le monde,
J'ai besoin d'aide avec ce nouveau système de tags dans Minecraft (du moins, c'est nouveau pour moi). J'essaie de miner certains blocs avec le Digital Miner en utilisant des tags. J'ai découvert que *ores/gold fonctionne, mais je n'ai aucune idée de ce que je fais. J'utilise JEI (F3+H) pour voir les tags, mais je ne pense pas que tous soient corrects.
Par exemple, je suis allé dans le Nether pour obtenir des blocs de magma, mais je n'ai trouvé que ceux avec le terme *infiniburn_nether. Il trouve le bloc ET le netherrack, donc ça ne marchera pas.
Comment puis-je "vraiment" trouver la chaîne exacte à entrer dans le filtre "tag" pour miner des blocs plus exotiques ? Ou devrais-je utiliser un autre filtre ?
J'ai essayé de chercher en ligne, mais je n'ai rien trouvé qui puisse m'aider davantage.

What Else Can You Do To Boost Male Health?
Good health is important for everyone, and men are no exception. But in men, it can have the added benefit of improving their level of confidence.
A Healthy Diet Is Essential to Good Male Health
A healthy diet is essential for good male health as it helps to keep your body functioning optimally. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats will provide your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to stay strong and energized.
Additionally, avoiding processed foods high in sodium or sugar will help to reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure that can further diminish energy levels.
Exercise Regularly For A Healthy Mental Boost
Exercising regularly helps to keep your body physically fit and provides an added mental boost by releasing endorphins that make you feel happier and more alert.
Whether you’re looking for a way to blow off some steam after a tough day or simply trying to maintain physical fitness goals, having an exercise routine that you adhere to on a consistent basis will help improve your overall well-being and confidence levels.
Get Enough Sleep Every Night
Getting enough restful sleep at night has many significant benefits for your overall health. It helps to reduce stress levels which reversely aids in reducing anxiety. In addition, being well-rested gives you more energy throughout the day so that you don't feel drained mid-afternoon which can cause feelings of fatigue or low energy, which affects moods greatly.
Aiming for 8 hours of sleep every night is ideal so you can show up feeling alert and rested each day!
Manage Stress Levels
Stress happens because life sends us challenges every single day that we must overcome one way or another. One of the best ways to manage stress effectively is through practicing mindfulness techniques such as meditation or deep breathing exercises, which may require a conscious effort but can ultimately make large impacts on how our bodies handle stressful situations both mentally & physically over time!
This will also help improve our self-confidence as stress management reduces overwhelm from daily tasks/obligations & improves our ability to focus on achieving what we want with greater ease – something all men should seek after!
Take Time for Yourself
Taking some time for yourself each day may seem impossible, considering there are already so many commitments — family, friends, work, etc. However, it's important to take care of yourself. Whether it's waking up early for some peaceful yoga before everyone else is awake or saving 15 minutes after lunch for reading a book (even better if it's outdoors).
Allowing yourself moments free from stressful tasks can help improve mindfulness throughout daily activities leading to higher self-esteem.

The point to be noted here is that the program is an addition to your routine. In order to achieve the best results, you need to follow a healthy lifestyle and a nutritious diet.
