2021.12.02 01:24 treefox [SHOW/BOOK Spoilers] Misc ideas about how to improve the Terminus arc after rereading Foundation
This is admittedly somewhat rough. And this probably won't make a ton of sense if you haven't both seen the show and read the books.
In the opening scene where Hari draws the Invictus, he instead inscribes something along the lines of "...to preserve and treasure it, for the good of this generation, and those to come."
The scenes on board the Deliverance don't need to change. They can, but not for this. I don't care what race/gender the characters are.
"Nuclear power" in the books is broadly replaced with nanofusion power. The "barbarian kingdoms" (and just two is fine) quickly lose the fine technique required for it in the opening salvos of conflict (think someone targeting silicon foundries on present-day Earth).
The First Crisis is largely told as it happens in the books, but from the perspective of a resistance group which feels that the Terminus government and the Foundation are being too lax. We only see Salvor Hardin and the board from a distance or through media; the resistance group is otherwise portrayed as the protagonists. The Crisis is told as a cat-and-mouse affair between the resistance and Anachreon spies, and briefly with open conflict as Anachreon begins landing forces a military base. However, the twist is that the group is ultimately not what drives the Anachreons off - it's the arrival of (we'll stick with the same show name) the Thespins threatening renewed conflict and the two larger forces entering a stalemate, with the Foundation's neutrality negotiated in exchange for equal help to both. In retrospect, psychohistory-boosted societal forces, not individual heroism, solves the crisis.
For the Second Crisis, the religion element is removed. The Foundation still trains engineers and mechanics without greater conceptual knowledge as it does in the books, but the religion element is instead replaced with hints of what the height of Imperial culture was like, from the Encyclopedia Galactica project. Also, a Hippocratic-like Oath to act in the interests of society, which we hear the first part of recited onscreen. We also see that Foundation Engineers are treated as outsiders in Anachreon and Thespis society, and are gently excluded from real positions of power.
Action and tension is provided with conflict between Anachreon and Thespis over the discovered Imperial battlecruiser. Anachreon ultimately prevails, and is strong enough to take it from the Thespin expeditionary force. They order their best and brightest Foundation engineers to repair it. The Thespins realize that Anachreon means to take control of the Foundation and send an attack fleet to destroy the Imperial battlecruiser, but are handily defeated by it as it comes online.
The Anachreon fleet jumps to Terminus. The commander orders Salvor Hardin to surrender. Hardin's image calmly refuses, and the commander orders select orbital bombardment of Terminus. But the guns don't work. None of the systems respond. The Anachreons are facing a general strike of their Foundation engineers across their fleet, as the Thespins are poised to wage all-out war on them and invade their core systems. Only the communications link with the Foundation remains.
Hardin explains by way of completing recital of the Foundation Engineer's oath, something like: "...I pledge my life and works to be in service to the public interest of the human race, its culture, and to be conscientious of my mark on the universe. As for knowledge, I pledge to preserve and treasure it in all forms, for the good of this generation, and those to come."

2021.12.02 01:24 Terrax266 A good lethal RPG.
So... don't know how to start this without sound like a psychopath so I'll go ahead and start. I've been looking for more dangerous rpgs, like Call of Cthulhu, or D&D second edition. Mostly to study maybe play. I tend to like high lethal systems mostly because of the tension created by the risk/reward. Yeah we know that it's super dangerous to fight that dragon but we do things because they are hard!

2021.12.02 01:24 stayz0096 How to not beat yourself up if your ex made you feel like the breakup was all your fault
I’m really struggling today with this 😢While my ex was breaking up with me, he listed all these horrible things that made me feel like a terrible human being. He never brought up any of his own faults, only mine. After being together for 5 years, he knows that I already really struggle with self blame and thinking everything is my fault…so the fact he threw all these things back in my face made me want to die.
I’m trying to take responsibility for the things I did wrong in the relationship while I heal. I know I’m not perfect and I’m the first to admit that. However, i know I’m not a bad person. I gave everything I had to that relationship. It hurts so bad hearing from him it was all my fault :(

2021.12.02 01:24 GoldenAgeNahiri Anyone else excited for [redacted]’s resurrection in this week’s Marauders?
Talking, of course, about Harry Leland who’s been dead for…well, longer than probably most of you have been alive for (35 years).
I’ve always had a real love of Uncanny 208-209 (the arc where he suffered his heart attack), and quite frankly I’ve wanted to see him return somehow for a long while.
And the best part of it all? Total surprise. I picked up the book for Fin Fang Foom and got Leland too! I’m far more jazzed about Maddy coming back (again) in Hellions next week, but Marvel spoiled that months ago…with the Black Bishop, I don’t think anyone knew that was coming until they picked up the book.
And now with him and Lourdes back, I wonder if we’re going to get an Inner Circle-centric book during the Age of Destiny.

2021.12.02 01:24 cbroughton80 Playing Wipeout Fusion from the PS Vita on my Gear VR feels right out of the movie Hackers!
I know I'm late to VR and the Gear VR doesn't have much life left, but I just spent half an hour playing Wipeout in VR and 15 year old me is extatic.
On my S10+ I used the Lemuroid emulator, a ROM of Wipeout Fusion for the Vita, a used Gear VR from Facebook marketplace, 8bitdo controller, and Bluetooth headphones. It all worked great.
While at it I played the original Super Mario Bros. on what felt like a 15 foot high screen. Just another dream of 8 year old me.
Thanks to the community for tipping me off to the Bixby button trick to get the 2D Home.
