2022.01.20 17:55 Zebirdsandzebats Best Places for Rockhounding in North Carolina?

Hey ya'll, i'm a super amateur over here but love just...finding cool rocks? I'm in the Triad area of NC and looking for cool rockhounding weekend trips. I've been to Cherokee Mine in Asheville (it's one of the only unsalted 'mining' dealies on the East Coast, super fun, found a decent sapphire!) and a couple of parks around Greensboro, but wanted to see if you guys had any other rockhounding suggestions for North Carolina (Southern VA and Southern WV reccs also welcome!)

2022.01.20 17:55 Peterdavid12345 I just realized electro-reaction is best against Pyro/Cryo/Hydro shields

For those who didn't know:
Overload (Electro + Pyro) vs Cryo shield
Superconducting (Electro + Cryo) vs Hydro shield
Electro-charged (Electro + Hydro) vs Pyro shield.
This is very useful tip if you want to decrease the Pyro Lector and Hydro Herald shields on Abyss 12.
(As for electro shield, it is Melt that has the best reaction against it)

2022.01.20 17:55 notoriousbogg Geographical region says Iโ€™m in Ireland and itโ€™s impossible to load into a game.

So recently I havenโ€™t been able to get into a lobby at all. The ping goes up to <90 and then just gets stuck there. I went to check my region in network settings and it says Dublin, Ireland. Iโ€™m assuming my region is whatโ€™s causing this retardation, but there is no way of changing it. My Cold War is also set in Ireland but it loads me into games with no issues and there is pretty much no lag and it appears that Iโ€™m loading into western servers. Not sure if this is an Activision issue or what but itโ€™s so fucking annoying. Iโ€™ve spent hours trying to configure my router settings and shit but to no avail atm. Let me know if anyone facing similar issues and have a fix for them.

I've never cheated nor taken a shortcut in any capacity of life... you earn the life and wife that you behold. Most people think it's impossible because they look like shit, despite doing movements that they call work (which isn't) and despite eating clean (which isn't)... my thesis is that if you commit to the 9 Ancestral Tenets, you will unlock the greatest version of yourself (your inner beast)... you will optimize your testosterone, your growth hormone, your IGF-1, your DHT, your metabolic markers and you will achieve a higher version of yourself that is to behold too. I believe in the ways of our ancestors.... we are descendants of the sole surviving species of genus Homo (the baddest mammalian predators that ever lived). I honor these ways by putting back in, what the modern world left out.

2022.01.20 17:55 dbez What treats do you give your Lab?

Our 10 mo old inhales his treats whole and then pukes them up whole.
He rushes to eat them and then can't digest them. Even if they're in a treat ball/puzzle.
Any suggestions on easy to chew/easy to digest treats? Maybe even kibble size?

2022.01.20 17:55 Chemical-Chance308 Alternate Mad Mage, Spell-Level Loss, Mindblank Spell - Help!

If the phrase "The Henry Singularity" means anything to you, stop reading before I have Strahd kidnap Yeska just to piss you off.

In my version of CoS, I use a conceit from LBH that the Mad Mage is Victor Vallakovich, all grown up. I also tied all my PCs' backstories into Barovia and one of the running jokes in my D&D group is the sheer number of Victors there are when we play (our paladin and one of my characters are both named Victor). That gave me the wonderful, horrible idea to make my Victor (an artificenecromancer mix) into Victor Vallakovich/The Mad Mage. I'm playing him now as a straight wizard, who pretended to be an artificer using tool proficiencies and keeping a "low profile" so no one would figure out where he was from or who he was. My Victor's two siblings got out of Barovia through the Mists (and Divine intervention) years ago, as I have the Petrovna/Petrovich family set up as a line of clerics and divine soul sorcerers. I have him also Mistwalking during his younger years, but perhaps not by the grace of Lathander, as per his brother and sister, since he is a wizard, not a divine caster of any flavor. I have him worshipping Ezra and having crossed paths with Van Ricthen under the name his friends and family know, which a Nat 20 insight got out of Rictavio a few sessions ago. Victor walked back into the Mists because he believed he saw a future where he fought Strahd with his party and won. He was played (by Strahd, obviously) to come back for a rematch and to trap all of his loved ones in Barovia until Strahd was done chewing up and spitting out their bones. Without knowing it was a trap, the party set out after him.
Which means his wife, the party's Druid, is looking for him, even as the rest of the party focuses on fighting Strahd and/or going home. She doesn't know his childhood last name or much about his homeland and she's been dragging lovesick puppy Vallakovich around with her for several sessions. He saved her from a vampire spawn, flirts awkwardly using science/magic jokes, and she has paid him almost zero attention. He's honestly the more impressive mage of the two of them based on his statblock and he keeps trying to show off to this Level 4 Druid because she's a professor and he's only ever dreamed about universities and he's smitten. She keeps turning him down because she is determined to find her husband... unaware that he's right there, with a faint Barovian accent and a lot of dead cats to show her. She wants to finally investigate the Mad Mage because her working theories are that the Mad Mage is her husband or that her husband de-aged himself and is this kid. She's, like, half-way right. (Our Paladin figured it out and asked me so for funsies I had Vallakovich ask him if he was him from the future). It's been a lot of fun and I really, really hoped the Druid would drag this out until after they'd gone to Krezk. Nope. Not even when I threw in a couple red herrings (re: the Abbot, Victor Vallakovich himself, and Father Lucian). She wants to go to Lake Zarovich during a deceptive "downtime" session I'm giving them - 24 hours after the Burgomaster's funeral to do what they need to do... so I can justify the insane power move Strahd, his brides, and Lady Watcher are about to pull, which requires a day for an NPC to travel from Krezk at the very least. (Spoiler: it doesn't take a day, but Anastrasya, disguised as Anna Krezkova, is coming to comfort her "cousin", Lady Vallakovich, in this time of grief), get inside the Burgomaster's mansion for Feast of St. Andral 2: Electric Boogaloo and she needs to justify Anna's arrival.)
Anyway. The party's mist totem was an enchanted ring that siphoned Victor's blood and its the blood of a Barovian noble that was the totem itself. At some point the druid filled a bottle up with it and gave it to Doru, against the party's better judgment. (Two of the other players later asked me if the blood was Victor's and if he was dead). The Druid drained about a liter from Victor and I had NOT anticipated this, so I had to make up a mechanic on the fly. Every time the players used the ring, I would strip Mad Mage Victor of spell levels.
He is now at 6th level casting, which means he can't do the mind blank spell anymore. Druid is determined to go find him next session. I've been having Mad Mage Victor's insanity hit when his timeline began to shift from what he remembered in his childhood. He's only been truly insane for about a week and he's only been leveled down for about two or three days. That said... Is it a cop out for him to be relying on spell scrolls to shield his mind from Strahd and company? Or should I leave him that vulnerable for the last few days? Do you think Strahd or one of his servants (a bride or Rahadin) has taunted him or fought him? He's living in an old stable he built when he had a horse (during his first fight against Strahd) and has salvaged what he can of his dampened, half-smashed belongings since he can no longer sustain the Magnificent Mansion. It's meant to be a miserable, reduced scene of a mage felled by his own hubris.
He has two timelines' worth of memories playing out in his head, which is driving him insane (and may have been all along, since it's possible his own actions have altered the timeline for the last year). This makes me wonder: is it strange to say that a greater restoration might not restore him "properly", since the PCs are actively changing his memories with every choice they make? They already killed his father and left his family in an incredibly vulnerable position as Lady Wacther prepares to go in for the kill and in his memories of "last time", he doesn't remember his father being killed.
I've been looking forward to him reuniting with his wife since I made the campaign, but Druid is DETERMINED to test her theory next session and I'm not ready! I have a little more than a week to figure out my next move. I think my question boils down thusly:

  1. Should I do away with the mind blank spell or should the Mad Mage have spell scrolls to utilize?
  2. If the party tries to use Greater Restoration on him, is it doomed to fail, since his insanity is caused/renewed/deepened each time they alter his memory?
  3. Should a member of Strahd's camp have discovered the Mad Mage to taunt him?
  4. Will encountering his younger self make things worse for both of them?
  5. Even with 6th level spellcasting, the Mad Mage is too OP for the party to cart around with them. What plausible excuses can I give for him refusing to join his wife and friends in their adventure?
  6. If he refuses to join the party (and they don't kidnap him and force him to return), what is a good way for him to turn them down? Part of me thinks he might be a viable candidate to take over if Lady Wacther challenges his mother (which the Mad Mage would hate, but the party left Ismark in Barovia Village and unbeknownst to them, Strahd had Volenta kidnap him and Ireena is their fated ally. The only other option to take over would be a PC, who would have to give up adventuring, Father Lucian, or the Martikovs, who stay out of the spotlight).
I have a lot of thoughts and I'd just like to toss this out there for other DMs to gnaw on! Thanks!

2022.01.20 17:55 Ricosss Study protocol on the safety and feasibility of a normocaloric ketogenic diet in people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Pub Date: 2022-02-01)
Study protocol on the safety and feasibility of a normocaloric ketogenic diet in people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Abstract Objectives This study evaluates the safety and feasibility of a normocaloric ketogenic diet (KD) in people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) for reducing hyperexcitability levels and modulating neuroinflammation.
Methods This is a prospective, open-label pilot study involving men and women diagnosed with ALS, ages 18 to 75 y. The primary outcome is the safety and reproducibility of the KD in people with ALS. We will monitor secondary clinical outcomes with the Revised Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Functional Rating Scale score, forced vital capacity, the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Assessment Questionnaire, blood parameters, and gut microbiota analyses. All participants will follow the KD for 8 wk. During the diet, the clinical status of all participants will be monitored every 15 d through neurologic and nutritional visits and biochemical markers. The research ethics committee approved the study.
Results Safety will be assessed by measuring the number and severity of adverse events, including death, and any changes in blood chemistry, vital signs, and clinical exam results. Tolerability will be assessed to complete the proposed 8 wk of treatment while maintaining adequate nutritional status without inducing malnutrition.
Conclusions Adequate caloric intake is essential in ALS, because insufficient intake induces loss of body mass. We hope that the proposed study will provide a positive result in terms of the safety and feasibility of a KD in people ALS, with the purpose of developing a patient-centered diet program to limit disease progression and possibly improve survival.
