[MOD] Universal Wasteland Expansion Mod Has Been Updated
Just released a new update for my Universal Wasteland Expansion mod. The update was a rather expansive update, with many aspects of the game being touched upon. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The "What Happens in Shark..." update is as follows:
Added in “glowing eyes” for the regular Skeleton race, the Screamer MkI Skeleton race, the P4 Unit Skeleton race, the Soldierbot Skeleton race, and all MkII Skeleton versions, as well. Along with that, added in 8 new eye colors to complement the eyes’ newly setup glow.
Created a new Skeleton race, “Skeleton MkII”(regular skeleton head on the MkII skeleton body), along with creating the corresponding eye colors and glow. Also, added the new race into 200+ proper dialogue references.
Added in “Mechanical Hivers” created races(from the “Mechanical Hivers” mod by CreatorGalaxy) and later overhauled the races. A “Mechanical Hive” faction was created for them, along with their own villages and capital. A new variant of the “Hiver Hut” was created, for use with the newly created “Mechanical Hiver” faction and races. Their faction was given their own campaigns and law system, along with a faction leader and corresponding bodyguards. All races of the “Mechanical Hivers” were overhauled(new meshes and textures, along with being given a proper colormap for use with the character editor) and given glowing eyes, similar to what the Skeleton races were given, in this update. Created face sliders for all the “Mechanical Hiver” races, to match up with the changes available with the facial sliders on vanilla game hivers.(Aka: You can change the size of the “horns” and “antenna” or such on the face of the “Mechanical Hiver” races) Also, created a “Mechanical Hiver Worker Drone” version of “Beep,” called “Cyber Beep,” along with all the dialogue references as the regular beep. He can be found roaming in the Mechanical Hiver Villages.
Added all “Mechanical Hiver” and “Southern Hiver” races(excluding the queens), to more than 350+ dialogue references of the vanilla hivers. In effect, their races will be much more immersed in the world around them. With npc’s and playable characters alike noticing and addressing them as their corresponding race, within the dialogue.(ie. They will be referred to as “hiver” in dialogue where a Western Hive Prince would be addressed as such) Also, added in “Southern Hiver” races into some spawns of recruit-able bar squad characters in the southern part of the map, up to and including the Swamps. The “Mechanical Hiver” races were also placed into some spawns of recruit-able bar squad characters in parts of the map surrounding the biomes the inhabit.
Added in armor and weapons from the “Hives Expanded” mod, by Circumsoldier. All hiver factions were adjusted to properly utilize the armor and weapons. A “Northern Hiver” version of the “Southern Hiver” weapons were created, along with manufacturers and all. Created new armor variants for the “Midland” and “Northern” Hivers, to correspond with the “Western” and “Southern” Hive factions armor from the “Hives Expanded” mod.
Made all hiver races color-able with the “skin tone” slider, within the character editor. Effectively making for much more subtle differentiation between members of the hiver factions and hivers, in general. This was done to every hiver race in-game, vanilla and created.
Created a “Swampers’ Run Racetrack” town right next to Shark. The town features “Swamp Raptor Race Betting.” Within the new town is a newly created racetrack with a betting office, grandstands, and night lighting. Swamp Raptors can be seen running around the track actively, during the day.
Created the following gambling games(11 games to gamble on in total) and implemented them in the corresponding towns:
Find the Lady (Thieves Guild Towers) (Bars Throughout Map)
Heads or Tails (Thieves Guild) (Bars Throughout Map)
Craps (Blackshifters Casino)
Higher Lower (Blackshifters Casino)
Swamp Raptor Race Betting (Swampers’ Run Racetrack)
Overhauled Shinobi Thieves’ towers, to fill them with some small organized gambling, along with adding in the possibility for “shinobi” recruits to spawn and hang out in their towers, as well.
Restored 11 weapons of “cut” content, from within Kenshi’s game files, and disseminated them throughout corresponding spawns.
“Bounty Captain” dialogue was completely overhauled, for every faction in-game. In effect, many more bounties will be recognized and called out upon the NPC noticing the character you are carrying. (For instance, even created minor faction leaders or bandit leaders will have call-out dialogue and corresponding dialogue for handing over specific, unique character bounties.)
Completely overhauled civilians seeing a carried bounty, for every faction in-game. (For instance, the “Holy Civilians” will scream in terror and shout targeted insults if you bring in Tora the Fearless or Flying Bull as a carried bounty.)
Bounties were expanded on important characters, where applicable. (For instance, the Traders Guild has a bounty on Esata the Stone Golem , in vanilla. Now the Shek have a bounty on Longen, leader of the Traders Guild; or the Holy Nation having a bounty on Flying Bull(which they did not in the vanilla game).
Added in “Better Crop Fences”mod assets to Universal Wasteland Expansion. Now all crops in-game will have the improved, modified fences.
Added in “Hive Robotics Expanded” replacement limbs. Spread the robotic limbs throughout the hiver spawns, where applicable.
Added in replacement limbs and weapons from Hugo the Dwarf’s “Crab Raiders Plus” mod.
Created Hamut’s “wife” (that he always talks about getting taken by slavers, in the vanilla game), into the game as recruit-able character. “Lena,” as he refers to her, is capable of being recruited with or without Hamut in your squad, however it is much easier with Hamut. Either way, they have “reunion” dialogue written, as well. She has a small chance to spawn in any Slave Trader faction mine or “stone camp.”
Created Knife’s “mother” that she refers to as living in Stack, in her vanilla game dialogue. A new squad was created to inhabit a house in Stack, including Knife’s mother “Mariah.” They have reunion dialogue and the mother has a gift for the daughter, Knife, upon her visiting. Knife’s mother will also engage the player in dialogue, even if Knife is not in the squad, however, she will send the player on a mission to find her daughter and bring her daughter, Knife, back to her.
Created Shryke’s “long-thought dead” brother that she refers to as not making to to Mongrel in her vanilla game dialogue. Being saved by a caravan of Nomads, Shryke’s brother “Norman,” set up shop nearby in a Deadcat Gatherer Village, while healing up and saving for replacement limbs(bought from nearby hivers). ”Reunion” dialogue was written for the brother and sister, with a chance to recruit the brother, Norman, if his sister, Shryke, is in the player’s squad and answers the questions in dialogue correctly.
Created Soman’s “brother” that she refers to as running a failing family fish shop, since her Dad was killed. “Abraham,” Soman’s “brother,” had a resident squad created in the Fishing Village, within the Northern Coast. Whereupon, he acts as a regular fish shop seller, with the exception that he will join the player’s faction, if they have a decently established player base(Above level 0). If not, he will dismiss the playeSoman as a dreamer without a plan in life.
Entirely overhauled the Kezok race’s textures and coloration(male and female). They were given a dark gray bone-plate now, instead of a darker green, as before, Eye colors were entirely reworked, as well.
Gave the Highlanders a town override at Rebirth once the Holy Phoenix and High Inquisitor Seta are dead, as long as their local leader is still alive.
Adjusted and tweaked all recruits’ “player dialogue packages” to aid in having more diverse dialogue and biome entries being used. (For instance, some skeleton recruits were set with the same regular dialogue package as any other race would be, instead race-specific skeleton recruits were made to utilize the “player skeleton” player dialogue package.)
Gave the Western, Midland, Northern, and Mech Hiver(newly created) their own “King” Crimper, in each of their respective capitals.
Tweaked and properly balanced “spawned -in” replacement limbs on NPCs. (This was a tweak and balance to a change already made in a previous version)
Adjusted all prisoner ai, to have them properly try to run away and escape, instead of just standing there outside the gates of their “captors.”
Tweaked the Inhuman Hunters’ town, Ashigakari, to fortify it somewhat more. Also added in more cages and adjusted their ai to kill prisoners.(Since they are so xenophobic, they do not believe non-humans even worthy of Rebirth)
Overhauled all created and vanilla dialogue that gives out a “seal” of some type and adjusted all faction leader “talk to ally” dialogue, to properly initiate all parts of the dialogue, instead of the same dialogue repeating ad nauseum, due to worldstate triggers.
Fixed the female mesh for the “Padded Leather Jacket,” thanks to Hugo the Dwarf for creating the female version of the mesh. Also, added in the ability to craft the “Padded Leather Jacket” and spread it through corresponding vendor lists.
Added in many more new word swaps.
Various small tweaks and fixes.

Despite being 37 years old, Michael is constantly controlled by his parents because of their overprotection of him since childhood and they think they are doing "the best" for him, which includes his personal life, his job, even his marriage was arranged! Because of this, Michael is often cowardly about his decisions and how others might receive them. He now thinks that only force is understandable and that a person should be judged by his ability and not his gender. This does not prevent Michael from being kind and genuine towards other people and trying to at least make friends. In another part of his life, he is fine, living decently with his husband and siblings.
A 3 AM YouTuber who arrived late to the trend, Alexa has a tendency to flex her belongings when no one really cares. She was recently involved in a scandal where she faked her boyfriend's death, causing endless amounts of controversy. Her sub count is dropping significantly every day, so she joined to help gain her popularity (relevancy) back. Being on BBHOT could help her to do so, and win some money as well.
Michael had dreams of being a musician since he was a kid, and had the drive to learn his craft to the best of his ability.... however, the 80s weren't really the most popular time period for french horn players, so he could never get that big break he always thought he'd have, despite getting a music degree. As a result, he grew old and bitter, resenting modern genres of music like rock and rap, as they are what took his career away from him. He does marching band at a few high schools and basically treats it like it's prison camp due to how bitter he is, and he eventually grew to love his job; torturing kids like him into giving up on their dreams. However, he still hates his life, as he recently had to pick up another school to teach to pay for his ungrateful wife's Netflix, so he needs money somehow.
Sonia enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, and tinkering with her 1972 Cutlass Supreme. She enjoys boxing, sweating, and being with her close friends. Sonia describes herself as self-reliant, bitchy, and big-hearted. She indicates that, although she seems guarded, she is in fact a lover and nurturer underneath the surface. In her spare time, she enjoys singing in her band. She believes her extensive world travel, endurance, ability to somewhat read people, and understanding of the human condition will be skills that will help her on Big Brother.
Even though she may come across as sweet and kind-hearted – and she is – she has a spirit of steel. A mere month after the trauma of losing her twins, she completed a marathon. Mara pours her heart into NGOs to make a difference and says she entered Big Brother: HoT not only to win, "but also to step into the shoes of those who have absolutely nothing; no bed, no food, no warmth, no shelter".
Mac grew up in the Bronx and learned how to not only have thick skin but also how to have some street smarts too. He was a basketball star in High school and was recognized in College as a great player for Basketball too. Now, he teaches others how to play the sport he loves. He's ready to show Big Brother how he does it and to make the black community proud.
Jessa has been underestimated most of her life. Growing up she was overweight and had low self-esteem. However, once her grandmother inspired her that no matter how you start, it's never too late to start over and make a new change for yourself. Since then, she lost weight, made everlasting friendships, and even opened up her own hair studio/salon. She's going into BB, expecting to be underestimated, but is looking forward to pulling the rug out from under them.
Ever since he was born, Douglas' family taught him how to be a ''gentleman''. Be the kind of person that people are proud to call their friend. Always help others when they need your help, always be there for people. He decided to become a nurse, wanting to help in the medical field as he always had a knack for it. Douglas has dedicated his life to helping others and hopes to come on BB and use this platform in order to shine a light on big and important matters. He doesn't necessarily care about winning, but he'll give it his all. Douglas has overcome a lot of challenges in his life, and he's ready to face this one head-on.
Karl has always loved the outdoors. He's a very outdoorsy kind of guy, loving adventures of all kind. As a kid, Karl was always a bit of an oddball and an off-beat. Despite it, however, he always managed to surround himself with a good, close group of friends. Karl is an only child, and his mom sadly passed away a short while after he was born. Ever since a young age, he had to work in order to help his dad with paying their bills and taking care of their house, which made him quite responsible, surprisingly. Due to his love for adventures, Karl ended up signing up for Big Brother and was accepted as he was seen as an interesting character. How well will he fare?
There’s always that one girl in high school who was the most popular but was also the most mean. This was Gigi in high school. Her parents are millionaires and made sure that she was set for life. Her only worry is what shoes to pick out the next day. She wanted to play Big Brother because she loves to manipulate people. Maybe her insecurities will be shown this season.
Bertha has grown up being made fun of for her looks, which is something she can’t control. This has hardened her and turned her into the strong woman she is today. Now, she serves middle schoolers during lunchtime. She wants to make a name for herself, and this is her chance to do so. She’ll do anything to get this money.
Brett Herman, 28, Professional Poker Player - u/Twig7665
Brett was born into wealth in a mansion in Texas. He lived through most of his childhood in that wealth until his father was caught up in a huge scandal that left him without money, so at age 17, Brett ran away to Las Vegas where he could begin a new life. He started playing poker in the streets, and when he was old enough to gamble, he went to a casino and stunned his opponents by winning the first time he played for money. Soon, people began to realize his talent, and he played in his first professional poker game at the age of 22. Once again, he won, and he became one of the most successful professional poker players in history. This fame caused him to grow arrogant and become a huge jerk, even to his manager. Now rich again, he isn't playing the game for money, he's playing the game to try something new and to gain another title.
Giovanni "Dr. Moreno" Moreno, 52, Doctor - u/Twig7665
Giovanni, better known by his moniker Dr. Moreno, was the son of an Italian immigrant, and he had a mostly normal childhood until his mother fell ill when he was nine. She died not long afterward, and the young Giovanni did not want to watch people die when he could help them, so he spent as much time as he could preparing to be a doctor in his teens, and when he was in his early 20s, he graduated from medical school and became a doctor, a role which he has held for almost thirty years now. He now has a family of his own, with a wife, three sons, and a grandchild. He is playing Big Brother for them.
Leo is a very smart person as he is a teacher but his real strength lies in his outgoing personality. He plans to create a majority alliance and stab them all in the back. This mix of skills is definitely a great thing for this game. The question is will he be able to pull off this strategy?
Sonja comes from a poor family and her life goal is to get rich. She devoted her childhood and teenage years to train like a gymnast. She got better and better over the years and is now very competitive. She plans to dominate the challenges and get to the end with sheer force in BBHOT.
A French-born Vietnamese child, Justine was brought up by a tiger mother and a father that she barely talked to nor cared for. Her mother would always try to push into the route of her choosing, Justine being a free spirit, hated her mother’s ideal future for her so she decided to run away at the age of 16. For the rest of her teen years, she moved from different locations and joined a “gang” where she managed to get money by doing many different things. She then decided to reinvent her image by going full goth and getting tattoos and piercings, something her mother would never approve of. She eventually got a job as a bartender and there she met a coworker with a very similar story to her. They instantly connected and became really close. She doesn’t keep in contact with any of her family members except for her brother from time to time and is completely fine with that.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ OVERVIEW AND THOUGHTS OF THE GAME AND HOUSEGUESTS (Obvious spoilers!) Opening: 16 brand-new houseguests enter the house of temptation for our 23rd season! This season is not like others, there are an extreme amount of twists ready to shake up this game! The banishment and opening eviction are the first. Camp Director Twist: Evicted: Justine | In this brand-new twist, Douglas, Dr. Moreno, and Michael plead to be the camp director. By a close vote, this power goes to Michael! He chooses to banish Michael H., Justine, Mac, and Sonja. Michael H, then Mac, then Sonja reenter the house. Justine is the first evictee of the season. This is so sad! She may get the chance to come back in! ;) Week 1: Evicted: Mac | After the opening eviction, Michael H. is the new HOH after being banished! He targets Brett and Mac in his nominations, but Brett pulls out the first veto! This forces Michael to put someone up, and he nominates Gigi. The house votes out Mac, but Justine returns and the camp comeback twist is in play! Michael K. has been dominating with power, and now has the nightmare power. He's definitely a big threat. Week 2: Evicted: Douglas | Wow! This was a great and intriguing week. Leo becomes the new HOH! He nominates the 2 players in the medical field, Dr. Moreno and Douglas. Dr. Moreno's veto pick Gigi wins, and he is saved! This causes Leo to make a big move by backdooring Brett. This is where the strategy comes into play. Brett makes a 6-person alliance and secures 4 out of their 5 votes to stay. He also gets Bertha's vote, which sends Douglas out and keeps Brett in for a blindside. This was a huge move and this could really change the season! I'm super sad Douglas left so soon though. Week 3: Evicted: Bertha | Michael is the new HOH, and puts up Alexa and Sonja. When players are picked, Brett activates his power. However, the same 3 houseguests are picked again! This is so funny and the odds of it happening are so low. This is definitely a memorable moment! Sonja saves herself by winning the veto! Michael K puts up Bertha, leaving the final 2 duo on the block. The house almost unanimously decides that Bertha should be evicted. After being eliminated on day 1, Justine returns to the game like nothing happened! I can't wait to see how she plays. Week 4: Evicted: Leo | Alexa wins the HOH! Her HOH was not the best, as she had to nominate 5 people. She first tries to put up Sonja and Michael K, but Michael activates his power, forcing her to then nominate Gigi and Leo. Gigi picks Sonja to play, and Sonja wins the POV. Alexa puts up Brett. In a tie, she evicts Leo. This was not the best move, because the alliance now has the potential to take the full majority. Good move on Michael's part, he's been a big threat in this pre-jury phase. Week 5: Evicted: Michael K | Sonja is able to clutch all of the power for the week! This allows her to be able to take a big threat, Michael, out. She puts Alexa up as a pawn and is able to lock the nominations and unanimously send him home. Michael K really had a big impact on the first part of the game. This leaves room for some people to step up and do the same. Week 6: Evicted: Justine | Sonia wins the HOH, and misses on a move. She nominates the duo of Gigi and Dr. Moreno, and Gigi saves herself. This allows Sonia to potentially nominate someone big, but she nominates Justine and she goes home obviously. This season has such great potential and the fact that an alliance is running it right now annoys me. And now Justine, someone who wasn't a big threat at all, is the first in the jury. Week 7: Evicted: Michael H. | Another outsider heads to the jury this week, as Brett becomes the new HOH. In the field trip twist, Karl stays safe while Gigi goes on the block. There was no way she would've gone home anyway, and Sonja ends up saving her. This leaves Michael to be the next evicted player. I hope there can be a power shift next week to switch up the season. Week 8: Evicted: Sonia | Gigi takes all the power for the week, and gets Sonia evicted. This was a predictable week, as Sonia is probably the biggest threat out of the outsiders left. Gigi and Sonja are doing great with comps, but I'd like to see some new things happen. Hopefully, Jessa can win herself a comp since her power wasn't used. Week 9: Evicted: Jessa | She was one of my favorites going into the season, so I'm really bummed she didn't pull through as an underdog. Brett wins HOH in another predictable scenario. Jessa wins the prankster and puts up her other outsider, Alexa. This is a terrible move. She could've at least tried to put someone in the alliance up. Brett, Gigi, and Sonja are steamrolling through the game right now. Week 10: Evicted: Brett | Karl wins his first comp with the HOH, and goes after Brett instead of trying to get Alexa out. Sonja wins yet another veto and locks the nominations. The vote ties and Karl gets Brett out. This is definitely a big move for his game and sets himself up nicely for the double eviction. Week 10 Double Eviction: Evicted: Dr. Moreno | Dr. Moreno is next out the door after Gigi wins the HOH. I was expecting another person in the alliance to go, but the fact that Gigi got Moreno out after being so close to him the whole game was crazy! Sonja wins the veto (again) and Dr. Moreno is blindsided in a 2-1 vote. Sonja has now won 7 vetoes, which is the record for this series! She's not one of my favorites on the cast, but these comp wins are crazy and I have to give her credit! Sonja and Gigi have won every POV this season except for one. Week 11: Evicted: Mara | This really surprised me! I thought Mara and Karl were a tight duo. I think he really wanted Sonja to leave, but she won her 8th POV and got to the final 4. I'm sad that Mara is out because of her backstory, but all of the final 4 have worked hard to be there. Competitions will probably decide who gets to the end and wins. Week 12: Evicted: Alexa | Sonja wins her 10th competition, and keeps her closest ally safe. Gigi then wins the veto, and make a fake alliance with Alexa before evicting her. I feel like that was unnecessary, but that's just who Gigi is. I like Karl the most out of this final 3, but Sonja really deserves to win. Alexa was a really cool personality to have on this season and I'm surprised she made it so far. Final 3: Evicted: Karl | This is no surprise. I knew this final HOH was going to Sonja, and Karl having a fight with her just sealed his fate even more. Sonja also forms a random alliance with Karl before evicting him, which is really not necessary. They just love to manipulate. Sonjia 100% deserves to win this season. She has the most competitions wins out of any houseguest in BBHOT history, even though the game is not all about comps. Finale: Runner-Up: Sonja | I swear this happens every time someone should win over the other. The jury was very bitter and she only received 3 votes. Sonja won almost every veto this season along with Gigi, and I really think she should have won. Gigi did make more moves, though. Her comp win record will take a lot to be beaten! I wasn't expecting that to happen this season! Winner: Gigi | Gigi was one of my least favorite on the cast. Seeing everyone's backstories compared to her's made me not like her as much and that she didn't deserve to win. She did play this game well, and she really used her manipulation skills to the best. Her and Sonja were one of the strongest duos to play and even though it may have been boring, watching them dominate the season was very cool as well. Fan Favorite: Mara | Yay! She didn't have a big impact on the game, but her backstory was very wholesome and she really deserves this! Possible for an all-star or returnee season: Sonja, Karl, Mara, Brett, Jessa, Justine, Alexa Notable Stats! Most Wins: Sonja, 11 wins (#1 record) Most Times Nominated: Alexa, 6 nominations Most Votes Against: Brett, 13 votes Times Veto Was Used: 7 times Final Thoughts:I really loved this cast! I was super excited to see them all play and was hoping someone deserving would win the money. The move that Brett made to save himself during Week 2 was amazing, but that alliance kind of ruined the season. I wanted to see power shifts and big moves, but it was repetitive. There were still some great moments though, like Brett using his power and getting the same 3 players, and Sonja breaking the comps record. It wasn't a bad season, but it could've gone better! I hope to see some of these players back under better scenarios. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PAST SEASONS: Season 1 Season 2 Season 3 Season 4 Season 5 Season 6 Season 7: All-Stars Season 8 Season 9 Season 10: Newbies vs. Veterans Season 11 Season 12: Couples Season 13 Season 14 Season 15: Coaches Season 16 Season 17 Season 18: Generations Season 19 Season 20: Strength vs. Skill Season 21: All-Stars 2 Season 22 Season 23 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Season 24 is coming!

7 Days to Die Alpha 19 Newbie Guide (PC Version) I've seen a number of posts looking for a "how to play," or "introduction," to the game. This is my attempt to write one. At the beginning of the game, you wake up video-game naked (i.e., in your underwear) and completely ignorant. Your goal is to survive, which is made harder by a) your nude ignorance, and b) the fact that you're living in the aftermath of a combined zombie/nuclear apocalypse. Your character has four on-screen meters showing your status: food, water, health, and stamina (or call it whatever you like -- fatigue, energy, etc.). Food and water levels go down unless you eat or drink something. They go down faster if you're doing something that burns stamina (like running). They go down faster if you're too hot or too cold (which is usually only an issue in biomes like desert or snow when you're not properly dressed). They can also go down faster with certain health effects (like getting dysentery -- I'll talk about these effects in a second). Run out of food or water and you will die. (Pay attention to the status bars; in real-life survival situations, regularly getting water is more important than food, but in-game, they both matter.) (Pro tip: Food and drinks you can make yourself are better in many ways than canned goods or basic crops.) Health is just like in any other video game. It goes down when you get hit, or fall, or step on pointy things like spikes or cacti. Run out of health and you die. Eating food, using certain medical supplies, or just waiting will cause health to go back up. Again, certain health effects may nerf your health bar. Stamina shows when you're tired. If you run out of stamina, then you can't swing weapons or tools, run, jump, or do other elements of an active post-apocalyptic lifestyle. The good news is that your stamina comes back faster than health while waiting. Drinking improves stamina recovery, and eating gives a temporary boost to maximum stamina. The bad news is that you will be using stamina constantly as you go about your day. (Pro tip: Check out the various beverages in the game to find stamina benefits -- particularly red tea and coffee, also known as the mining combo.) Alpha 19 has a variety of different health effects that can hamper your food and water consumption, your health/stamina recovery, your maximum health/stamina, your speed, or your ability to use tools. Dysentry comes from eating rotting flesh or drinking unboiled water. Don't do that if at all possible. (Pro tip: You can eat animal fat and snowberries -- or yucca fruit in the desert biome -- if you run out of food in the first couple of days.) Other de-buffs come from injuries. The good news is that if you click on the icon showing the effect, it will bring up your character with info on exactly what you need to mitigate the effect, e.g., put on a splint or a cast to speed healing from a broken leg. Two particular health effects worth calling out are bleeding and infection. If you're bleeding, your screen will flash and your health will keep dropping. Use a bandage, medicated bandage, or medkit to stop it. ANYBODY can make bandages from cloth, so keep some with you. Infection refers not to gangrene, but to the dreaded zombie infection...a disease so horrifying that it helped usher in the fall of civilization. The ONLY way to cure this dangerous disease is...to eat some honey or take an over-the-counter antibiotic. Really, infection should only ever be a serious issue in the first week. (Pro tip: using an ax on tree stumps has a random chance to drop honey.) Encumbrance: You have a fixed number of inventory slots. You will note that three rows are clear at the start of the game, while the final two rows are not. Those extra rows represent encumbrance, and filling them up will significantly slow you down and increase your stamina usage. Try to avoid that outside of cleared or safe areas. You can increase the number of non-encumbered slots with clothing and armor mods, or through the Pack Mule perk. I recommend finding or making pocket mods ASAP and skipping the perk, though a single level in the early game can make things easier for newbies. (Pro tip: Some items, like most raw materials, food, drinks, medicines, etc., stack in inventory; some items like clothing, mods, and weapons do not. Smart inventory management when looting and salvaging will keep that in mind: do I really want to pick up that pair of shoes, or hold onto that dirty water that will stack if I find more?) All right, now that the basics are out of the way, how do I get better at surviving? The answer to that is two-fold. 1) Learn how to do more things. 2) Get better stuff. How do you learn more things? You get experience points (xp) from almost everything in this game. Eventually, when your xp bar fills, you will gain a level and get a perk point. You can use that to select perks, which all have various benefits. At the start, you will get a series of basic quests that serve as a mini-tutorial, and you will gain 4 perk points from finishing them (make sure you complete them!). (Pro tip: Upgrading blocks, e.g., turning flagstone walls into brick walls, is an exceedingly generous way of earning xp in Alpha 19; using a hammer on a block will tell you what material is needed to upgrade it.) Which perks should I pick first? Well...as a newbie, I recommend Lucky Looter (which improves your chance of finding good stuff), either Pummel Pete or Skull Crusher (depending on whether you want to use clubs or sledges), Sexual Tyrannosaurus (which improves your stamina usage), and something from the Fortitude recovery perks. Healing faster, using less food, or running away are all useful. Ask a different player and you will get wildly different suggestions. Eventually, you will figure out your preferred style of play and pick things accordingly. Note that perks tend to be useful to different degrees based on whether you are in early, mid, or late game. The other way to learn stuff is to find skill books and schematics. Schematics let you craft new things. Skill books give you a free perk, basically. Collect all seven of a type to get a bonus perk. Some of those are quite useful. Some of them are very circumstance-specific. Regardless, reading an unread book or schematic at least nets you bonus xp. You can tell that you've read a book by the tiny book icon (it will be open if read already). Even if you've read it, you can keep it and sell it for some cash. (Pro tip: Technically, schematics and books stack in inventory; in practice, finding multiple copies of the same one in a single POI is relatively rare.) How do I get better stuff? There are three ways to do that: 1) Loot it; 2) Make it; 3) Buy it. Looting: There are many objects that serve as containers in the game. Some objects, like cars, may or may not be a container. Just get close. If you get the option to search it, then it is a container. Not every container will have stuff. Searching containers takes time and makes noise. Locked containers need to be disassembled or have the lock picked in order to open them. Alpha 19 changed looting to be highly level- and time-dependent. You will not get top-tier loot in the early game. Even if you somehow fight your way to the roof of the Shotgun Messiah weapons plant on Day 1, you are likely to find stone spears and maybe a blunderbuss. (Pro tip: a pair of lucky goggles will increase your chance of finding better loot when opening a container for the first time.) Crafting: If you know how to build something, and you have the necessary ingredients, and you have access to the correct work area, then you can create something from scratch. Perks and schematics will tell you how to build stuff, though there are a handful of things you can build right at the start (like you saw in your tutorial quests). Ingredients can be looted, or you can salvage them by destroying items. See the next paragraph for more on this. Lastly, some items require you to be at a workbench, chemistry station, campfire, or forge to create (there will be an icon next to the item in the build list telling you which). You can build all of these work areas if you know how, buy them from traders, or use ones you find scattered around the world. Traders have one of each, though they probably won't all be functional (but the broken ones can be looted, at least). Caveat: In Alpha 19, you can build up to level 5 gear (higher level gear is usually better and has more slots for mods), but level 6 gear can be found or purchased. Level 6 gear is typically better than anything you can build of the same type. Salvage: Getting raw materials can be done in a number of ways. Use tools (axes, picks, wrenches, shovels) to extract things from blocks in the world. This is mostly fairly intuitive -- shovels work best on dirt, cement, etc., while axes are good on wooden items like tables and trees. Tools have different levels and can be modded to improve their abilities. Pay attention to the "block damage" stat of the tool to compare them. Some blocks are better sources than others. You can find mineral nodes scattered around that provide you with coal, iron, nitrate, oil shale, or lead, and those are excellent sources (Pro tip: the nodes are just the tip of the mineral iceberg; you can dig down to extract more ore.) Another way to get raw materials is to use the scrap command in inventory (personally, I found the hotkey for this a little too easy to hit accidentally, so I remapped it). This includes most useful items of gear, as well as certain decorative items like faucets and chairs that you can pick up. Note that many metal items can be put in the forge to smelt them down for more resources than you get using the scrap command, including iron tools. (Pro-tip: Smelting radiators that you get from disassembling cars, heating radiators, and AC units is a great source of brass for crafting ammo; you can also smelt Dukes...but you're usually better off using them to buy ammo from a merchant.) Buying: Merchants are scattered over the map. Setting up a base near one is a good idea. The post-apocalyptic currency in this game is the Duke, a brass coin that looks like a casino chip. (There are no bottle caps in this game!) If you don't have any money, then you can instead trade your labor for payment. Complete a quest and you'll get cash, xp, and a free prize of some kind (you get a choice -- ammo, meds, gear, etc.). Quests boil down to: retrieve a package, kill some zombies, kill some zombies AND retrieve a package, or dig up and retrieve a package. In the early game, in particular, quests can be very lucrative. (Pro tip: The Daring Adventurer perk can improve the rewards you get from quests if you decide you want to focus on that aspect of the game.) Merchants sell all sorts of things: food, raw materials, weapons, armor, vehicles, skill books, schematics. Their inventory resets daily-ish, so pop back on a regular basis. Cheesy pro-tip: When you trigger a quest location, the POI will refresh to an "unexplored" state. This automatically refills all of the loot, etc., as well as repopulating the zombies. You can clear the location, then trigger the quest and clear it again for double the rewards. Just don't leave any loot inside a container that will refresh. What about combat? Why haven't you really mentioned the z-word yet? Well, honestly, you'll probably spend a lot more time salvaging and looting than fighting (with the exception of Blood Moon horde nights, which I'll talk about below). Most zombies in the early game are slow and fairly easy to avoid. If you can avoid getting mobbed, then you will probably be all right. Animals, however, will mess you up. You will quickly start yawning when you see a single stumbling housewife zombie, but a wolf will continue to be a threat well into the mid-game. Zombie animals are also a threat. Zombie dogs are fairly easy to kill but come in packs of 3-7. Zombie bears will soak up more damage than you can easily dish out in the early game. Zombie vultures are hard to hit and are really good and causing lacerations and bleeding. I've gotten infected by zombie animals far more commonly than I have from human zombies. Zombie dogs, coyotes, wild cats, and wolves: running works until you run out of stamina, and then you're dead. The best bet in the early game is to find someplace high they can't reach and snipe them if you have enough arrows or ammo. These animals can and will sneak up on you. The good news is that they will make random noises that will let you know they're in the area. Snakes: I've seen these in the desert and wasteland biomes. Good eatin', but they are quiet and can attack without warning. Luckily, they die easily. Wild pigs: Don't bother them. Seriously, just leave them alone until you have good guns. Bears and zombie bears: The good news is that they won't chase you as easily as some other animals. They are also not as fast and you can outrun them. The bad news is that if you get cornered, they can take and dish out huge amounts of damage. Zombie vultures: These will attack you if you're injured, or are riding a vehicle. Shotguns are the easiest way to deal with them. Hitting them with melee weapons is an irritating chore that often ends with negative health effects. Possibly the most annoying creature in the game. Deer, rabbits, and chickens: They don't attack, but run if attacked. They can be a good source of meat. (Pro tip: you can get quests from slips of paper you find in loot; the ones asking you to do things like, "kill a bunch of rabbits by throwing cans of Sham at them," are never worth it unless you're desperate to try something new.) As the game advances, and as you explore some of the larger points of interest (POI), you will run across more dangerous zombies. Feral zombies have glowing eyes and always move at a full run. Crawlers will jump around like demented jackrabbits. Glowing versions of zombies regenerate health. A good rule of thumb is that if something is different about a zombie, it probably is more dangerous. (Pro tip: Quite a few POI's have alert triggers that will cause a bunch of nearby zombies to wake up at once, and stealth doesn't avoid tripping them; best to always have a clear avenue of retreat when entering a new location.) Weapon selection: As said earlier, clubs and sledgehammers are your basic melee option. Either works well for the early game or to save ammo or hit quietly in the later game. Spears, axes, and knives/machetes can also be used, but they require more practice and really NEED perks to be fully optimized. Note that knives and axes are mostly meant to be tools. Stun batons require another source of damage, either turrets or other players, to be effective, and are also perk/mod-dependent. Bows can easily kill basic zombies quietly with a headshot. Use the best bow or crossbow and the best ammunition that you can. Do away with stone arrows/bolts as soon as you can find or build the iron versions. You'll need to decide for yourself if you want to keep using bows once guns are available. I like them, but your mileage may vary. (Pro tip: There is a skill book that allows you to craft flaming and explosive arrows; sadly, there is no way to ride around in a Dodge Charger, shooting exploding arrows out the window while Dixie plays from the car horn.) Guns are easily the best option in the game...and while perks can make them more effective, they aren't necessary. Don't hesitate to pull out a shotgun just because you put all your perk points into pistols if you run out of 9mm ammo. There is a fair amount of ammo in this game, and you can make more...but I always keep a club or sledge with me just in case. Having a gun makes exploring the harsher biomes a lot easier. The trade-offs for gun selection are pretty in line with any other game that has guns. Some burn ammo quickly. Some have low ammunition capacity. Some are better at long range. (Pro tip: having several loaded blunderbusses or double-barreled shotguns in your tool belt can provide an early-game rapid-fire option for dealing with tougher opponents.) Weapon perks and skill books: Each type of weapon has an associated perk, and an associated skill book set. Maxing out both can make a fairly sizeable difference, and can have some unexpected other benefits. For example, one of the skill books gives you a 10% barter bonus if you happen to be holding a .357 while trading. Blood Moon Horde Nights: Every 7 days (by default), the sky will turn red. When night falls (hour 22 by default), a horde will spawn near the player. Every zombie in that horde will magically know exactly where you are and will rush at you to eat your delicious flesh. The devs of the game have made it clear that they want you to FIGHT the zombies, and have gone well out of their way to make turtling behind defenses less viable. Zombies will break down walls -- even ones made of brick and concrete. They will dig to reach you. They jump on top of each other to climb to get you (like in the Brad Pitt zombie flick). As the game progresses, zombies will appear that are capable of spitting acid, or that act as suicide bombers (can you call it suicide bombing if they're already dead?). (Pro tip: Bomb zombies, also known as Demolishers, can be taken down by head or leg shots; shooting them in the chest is a bad idea, despite the fact that shooting the glowing spot is normally the best move in a video game.) Having said that, building defenses and traps can be very effective at delaying or channeling zombies, and can effectively thin the horde. There are pretty much two approaches people use to deal with a horde night.
Find a POI that prevents the zombies from reaching you and then wait out the attack. Anyplace high with enough metal or stone to last for a while will work. Large stores, fire departments, skyscrapers, water towers, etc., can all work, though the smaller the location, the more quickly it will fall to the zombies eventually.
Build a fortress. This is usually a setup that includes auto-turrets, traps, spikes, and walls made of brick or concrete. Often, they're set up to lead zombies into a killing zone where you can shoot or bomb them into bits. There are many YouTube videos on different approaches, and they range from lore-friendly to extremely cheesy exploitations of the AI or physics engine.
Note that these two are not mutually exclusive. It's pretty common to use POI's at first and then try building your own, or to move back to POI's if your attempt at a custom fortress is less effective than you had hoped. (Pro-tip: Don't use your home base for horde nights...at least until you've got a LOT of experience fortifying against horde nights.) Creating a home base: Every survivor needs a place to keep their stuff. Just like with a horde base, you can either re-purpose a POI or build your own from scratch. If you use a POI, then make sure you put down your bedroll. That will keep sleeping zombies from respawning in the area. If you want to use a bedroll as a way of regularly resetting your spawn point, then you're probably better off building your own base. That said, a good POI to use as a base has height. Using a forge on the first floor is a good way to attract random zombies. It's also good to find someplace with brick or concrete walls, as they'll last longer against wandering foes. Also, keep in mind that you'll be going in and out a lot, so you don't want it to be too hard to get in and out. (Pro tip: lone zombies can't jump to ladders that are two blocks off the ground, but you can; this doesn't work so well with hordes, as they climb over each other.) By default, zombies are faster at night, so early game nights are a good time to huddle up in a base and craft things. When you run out of things to craft, READ the descriptions of your perks, skill books, and the built-in journal entries. You'll be surprised how much information is buried in there. You can also take the time to look at the map and plan out the next day's activity. (Pro tip: Find a cluster of close-together POI's on the map, and put a chest or storage box in the middle to serve as a temporary loot repository; inventory item stacking means that having a collection point can mean many fewer trips back to your base with the fruits of your effort.) Vehicles: Maps in this game are fairly large. The solution to moving about to different biomes (which have different resources and different POI's) is to make or buy a vehicle. Anybody can assemble vehicles if they have the right parts, but some of the parts are locked behind perks/schematics. Taking the first-level vehicle perk can be useful, as the bicycle isn't a bad starting vehicle and the perk unlocks wheels, which every other vehicle needs. (Pro-tip: the easiest way to get gas when out-and-about is to salvage the many derelict cars.) Zombies and wildlife are pretty harmless if you can speed past them...with the exception of vultures, which can be annoying enough to make you stop your motorcycle just to shotgun them out of the sky. Mods: There are tons of clothing, weapon, and armor mods in the game. Read the descriptions, as they can have a huge impact on effectiveness. (Alpha 19 has no vehicle mods, despite the fact that vehicles have mod slots.) If you open an item for modding, then any mods in your inventory that can be used for that item will start flashing, making it easy to see which mods go with that item. (Pro tip: There is a boot mod that reduces falling damage that is worth its weight in gold. Not only is it really easy to fall in some POI's, but the de-buff from spraining or breaking a leg when zombies are about can be utterly lethal.) Power tools: Power tools are very powerful. Augers and chainsaws harvest materials very rapidly. They also use gas and make a ton of noise. They tend to quickly attract screamers, which are zombies that scream until other zombies show up to find out what all the fuss is about. Kill them quickly to avoid hordes interrupting your mining. (Pro tip: The physics engine of the game means that mine collapses are a thing, and they can be deadly; shoring up the ceiling with wood blocks can help prevent this, but augers can mine so quickly that you can lose track of how deeply you've gone beyond your supports.) The annoying pinging noise made by augers is an Alpha 19 addition that was generally disliked by everyone. Repairing items: Many items like tools, weapons, and armor will degrade over time. Weapons and tools will let you know they need repair...typically when you need them the most. Armor never notifies you. It just stops working. Check your item status bars to figure out when to repair them. Simple tools and weapons can be fixed with wood and stone. More sophisticated items require repair kits. In Alpha 19, repair kits are a generic fix-all for any advanced item, which greatly simplifies things. They can be crafted with forged iron and duct tape. (Pro tip: forged iron can be made in any forge, but you can also salvage them from disassembling weight sets, desk and gun safes, and NON-FUNCTIONAL vending machines; salvaging them can be tedious in the early game but can be worth it to keep your precious firearms and armor functioning.) Farming: You will find seeds, or you can take a perk or find a schematic to craft seeds. It takes five cobs of corn to create one corn seed, which is odd given that the whole grain is basically made of seeds...but chalk it up to game-play balancing. To plant a seed, you need a farm plot (except for mushrooms, which can grow on any surface), which you can craft with wood, rotting flesh, clay, and nitrate. Once planted, it will grow in three stages. Harvest it at stage 3 by punching the plant, and it will revert to stage 1 and deposit the appropriate food item into your inventory. If you accidentally harvest the seed, just replant it. If you want to get physically fit, do a push up in the real world every time you accidentally punch the ground or the air instead of your crop. (Pro tip: Don't harvest with a mostly full inventory, as if your tool belt slot is the last open spot, the crop will go there, and your next attempted punch will instead eat the last one you harvested.) Electricity: Fire attracts zombies like moths. Using electric lights is a convenient way to avoid that, as zombies are Luddites and don't care for the products of industry. The most convenient way to light up your home base is with lanterns, but you need to find a certain skill book to make them. The good news is that their batteries never need recharging. You can also get flashlights, or mods that attach lights to your helmet or your weapon (press F to pay your respects...er, sorry, to turn on your light). You can also craft a variety of stand-alone electric lights, but that requires a separate energy source. Energy sources come in three varieties. Battery packs hold up to six car batteries and drain the batteries over time. You can recharge the pack by connecting it to a different energy source. Generator banks hold up to six engines (recoverable from many derelict vehicles, among other sources) that burn gasoline to provide power. Solar banks contain solar cells and generate power as long as they are in sunlight. They also cannot be crafted and are as expensive as hell. (Pro-tip: Higher-level batteries last longer; use level 1 and 2 batteries to craft vehicles, sell, or smelt for lead, and keep the better ones for the battery banks.) Use wiring tools to connect energy sources to energy consumers. There are some slightly wonky rules to how you can connect, but it isn't hard to learn with a little trial and error. Wiring doesn't cost you anything, so experiment freely. You can put various switches between the consumer and the source: toggle switches, pressure plates, and motion sensors being the most common, though there are other options. Switches require power, but less power than an active consumer. This allows you to, for example, conserve power in the daytime by turning off active defenses and lights so you don't waste battery charge or gasoline. (Pro tip: a solar bank charging a full battery bank will provide quiet, continuous power, at which point you can feel free to light up your place like a Vegas casino 24/7.) Stealth: Some players will tell you stealth is impossible in this game. That is not true. What is true is that some situations negate stealth, most particularly Blood Moon hordes. Just tell yourself that the red moon makes their senses so acute that they can smell a living human from a mile away -- if you can't rationalize it away as a game balance issue. Some POI's also have event triggers that are based on your location rather than how stealthy you are being. Chalk that up to dramatic license. This is a game where zombies are real and I can carry a motorcycle in my boot. Get over it. There are some things you need to know about stealth, though, to do it effectively. Your stealth rating is a combination of noise and visibility. Clomping around in heavy armor, waving a torch or flaming club around, or using a flashlight will make you easy to notice. Firing a gun, whacking a wrench against a metal appliance, or jumping up and down on a pile of trash will also make you easy to notice. That means using light armor, using a bow or melee weapon, and crouching are all ways to avoid being seen. There are a number of skill books, perks, armor and weapon mods, and craftable gear that can all make you more stealthy. With diligence, you can walk up behind a sleeping zombie, smack him in the head with a sledgehammer, and not disturb the other one right next to him. Will this make the game much easier? I would argue no. It certainly makes some specific situations much easier. Clearing out a mini-horde in a POI with a bow before they wake up can be much less stressful, certainly. The lack of universal effectiveness definitely makes it a playstyle choice, however, rather than an over-powered build to avoid if you want a challenge. (Pro-tip: Stealth is never a 100% guarantee, which is why you always carry stacks of wood; wood is incredibly flexible, as it lets you drop cheap spike traps in narrow passages, climb up easily to places zombies cannot reach, make bridges across open gaps, craft doors to seal off openings that foes have to make noise to get through but that you can open easily, etc.) That's about it. The most important pro tip is this: this is an open-world game where the only thing that matters is that you have fun playing it. It doesn't matter if you want to do single-player, or multi-player, or if you like crafting more than combat, or prefer spears over guns. You bought the game. Do what you like, as that is really the only goal.
"Did you miss me you wankers?" - James Hoxworth (2014) "Nothing you dream of is impossible for me to accomplish." - Lucifer Margatroid \ refers to (James Hoxworth (post-Payday 2)| Makai Form* Name: Lucifer "James Hoxworth" Margatroid Nicknames: Hoxton, Morningstar, (The) Devil, Demon Angel, (The) Demon, (The) Clown(s from TV), (Bank) Robber, Thief, Luci, (The) Beyonder, Jim Hoxworth Age*: 39 (Birth year: 1981) Common Location(s): Lunar Capital, Golden Grin Casino, Makai Income: Fluctuates between hundreds of thousands (USD, at worst) to tens of billions (USD, at peak) per month [Golden Grin Casino]. At least tens of thousands [Crimes]. Appearance:
Species*: Human (Demonically Possessed)|Demon Angel (God) Language(s): English, Japanese, Chinese, Demon, Angel|Omnilingual Powers*: All forms of Magic, Peak Lunarian Condition (Immortality, god-like physicality) Reality Bending, Limited demonic powers, Demonic Form, Infinite Willpower|All previous abilities taken to the highest level, Omnipotence (power-only, being surpassed only by his mother and having no equivalents after that), Nigh-Omniscience, Omnipresent, Invulnerable, Creation, Destruction Power Explanations:
All forms of magic: It could literally be anything considered magic, demonic magic, angelical magic, magic for the sake of magic, go wild!
Peak Lunarian Condition: the average Lunarian would be considered superhuman compared to a human on Earth, Hoxton, being a demon, combined with his purity, is one of, if not the physically strongest being on the Lunar Capital, only surpassed by the gods that live there. Additionally, all Lunarians will not die of old age and Hox is no exception.
Reality Bending: while Hoxton can at best bend the rules of reality, he can't outright warp it to his liking, at least not in comparison to his true form.
Demonic powers: apart from magic, Hoxton's demonic powers are enough for everyone to consider him a "demon."
Infinite Willpower: Hoxton can do anything he wills, as long as it doesn't overwhelm the body of James Hoxworth (current host)
Omnipotence: Lucifer is all powerful (even more so as "The Beyonder"), being able to do things such as grant others omnipotence (and could as easily strip them) and kill himself without effort and revive if he so wishes. Additionally, because he's all powerful, with nobody can surpass him (except for Shinki, who granted him the gift and could as easily strip it)
Nigh-Omniscience: Lucifer knows absolutely everything about Makai, but has to experience every realm outside of it by himself to gain knowledge.
Invulnerable: No, not even Doomguy Co., 100+% Shaggy, and other meme gods in their true state could even dream of touching Lucifer. At best they'll serve to piss him off before being nothing but ideas into people's heads, if they get lucky that is.
Creation & Destruction: Can create and destroy absolutely anything effortlessly.
Career: C.E.O. of the Golden Grin Casino (since November 2018), Thief (since 2011, still ongoing), Swindler (since 1998, still ongoing). Hobbies: Robbery, swindling, running the Golden Grin Casino, enjoying the Lunar Capital, throwing parties, relaxing on beaches, "breaking in" Alice's house|Sleeping in Pandæmonium, creating things in Makai, organizing surprise trips, sleeping in the World of Ice and Snow, embodying Makai. Family: James Hoxworth (current host), Shinki (biological mother), Watatsuki no Yorihime (wife), Alice Margatroid (adopted sister), Yumeko ("older sister" and maid), literally any demon in Makai and Sariel (created family), Watatsuki no Toyohime (sister-in-law), Eirin Yagokoro and other Shinto kami (distant relatives), unnamed Hoxworth couple (adoptive parents), unnamed brothers (adoptive brothers) Friends: Marisa Kirisame (burglary trainee), Rochelle "Clover" (mentee), "Bonnie" McGee (friend), Aldstone (butler), the Payday Gang (criminal crew, involves Bain and Locke), anyone involved with Eientei (proxy to the Watatsuki Sister's relationship with Eirin), Scarlet Devil Mansion (swindling victims, except Hong Meiling, Patchouli Knowledge, and Flandre Scarlet), Byakuren Hijiri (ex-prisoner of Makai, occasional therapist), gamblers (one-sided friendship, often victims of his scams and their hubris), Reisen (pet), Lord Tsukuyomi (common victim of Hox's trickery, but pretty stable friendship apart from that) Enemies: Matt Roscoe (two-time traitor, torture victim), Hector Morales (ratted on Hox), "The Dentist" (traitor), police departments (enemies from his time as a bank robber), Federal Bureau of Intervention (especially for office agents, SWATs, and Hostage Rescue Teams), GenSec Industries, Department of Homeland Surveillance via the Force Z Elite Assault Legion, Murkywater, Kataru (groups that attempted to stop the Payday Gang), Overkill M.C. and other various gangs (victims of the Payday Gang), Houston (claims he "stole" Hox's identity, shared animosity), Captain Neville Winters (recurring enemy sent to stop the Payday Gang), anyone with a hatred against demons (shared animosity and defeated by Hox numerous times effortlessly), people he's swindled and/or were in debt to (for obvious reasons) Information about Makai: The known dimension is not "a dimension," it's actually it's own separate cosmos, being connected to realms with large concentrations of spiritual and/or magical energy. Hoxton believes that Makai is simply Shinki's willpower (even higher than his) that manifested itself and the events that happened there is just her imagination running wild with the only "real" entities there being both of them. Background: A demonic prince birthed from Shinki's womb, he grew up a good childhood, being a master of magic and the next creator god. Eventually, an event known as "Mystic Square" shook him up and he left for the U.K. where he fell into the life of crime after having a few mental problems. Originally one of the core members of the Payday Gang, Hoxton was arrested for 2 years and had flashbacks to his original life in prison. Being broken out, crime was his escape from reality and he committed more to suppress his memories. Eventually, after the Payday Gang disbanded, he bought the Golden Grin Casino and gambled alot until he started to wonder, "Who was my mother?" Eventually, fate, or a moon god decided to give Hoxton an important female figure in his life. Marrying the Lunar Princess, Watatsuki no Yorihime. Hoxton was pretty happy until he realized he had different origins.
A [Super Long] Story Archive: My Aneurysm Given Human Form
This is a story that happened earlier this year. I posted part one of this on another subreddit but never had a chance to finish the story so I guess later is a better time than never. Just to be sure before this begins, this player is no longer in our group and no way is this story meant to be malicious in any way towards the offender, just airing grievances and retelling a tale since it was my and many other players' first time experiencing That Guy. Now on to the post: A little background information; I'm currently in a DnD group that I've been with for a little under 2 years now. I love them very much since everyone has the perfect balance of voice acting, character development, and player tactics. We've played two large games, one of which we finished, and the other still ongoing. Between that there's been tiny offshoots ran by different members every once in awhile - there are 10 of us in total but I will be talking about one very... Very special person. In order to protect privacy, we'll name this special person Jerry. Here's an index of the names of those who will be featured in this story down below: • the Drow Cleric/Aasimar Paladin = Me [Anon] • The Gunslinger Tiefling = Bunny • The Eladrin RangeRogue = Nick • The Goblin Druid/Tiefling Warlock = Jordan • The Human Druid = Big Brain • The poor DM = Blaine & • Repeating Offender = Jerry Now that everyone's known, let's get started. So here's to the beginning of the new campaign. It started because me, Blaine, and Bunny were in vc and tossed around a few ideas about it being a thing that Blaine would DM again because we missed him and it's been a few months since he ended his old one. He took our 5 hour long conversation and announced he was running a new game using the ideas we'd come up with. Essentially, we'd play a group trapped on a magic island with the only civilization being basically a Vegas paradise all ran by one overly kind lady but things weren't exactly what they'd seem. We all love a good mystery so of course, everyone was excited about it. Especially Jerry who jumped at the new opportunity to show the party what crazy character idea he can come up with Since he has a knack for a certain trope... that which I will cover in a later story. He broke off from his expected trope though as he now played a minotaur oathbreaker paladin with amazing wisdom and a -1 to Intelligence. Now here's when things get tricky. Having a -1 in intelligence basically means you're a little below the average person right? You would think that the +4 in wisdom would make up for that when it comes to hindsight and understanding the consequences of your actions. Instead, Jerry played his paladin like he had a -4 in all mental stats. At the beginning of the campaign, he did this thing where if there was anything even slightly "off" to him, he'd smack his horns with his Warhammer and cast Thunderwave. It was cool the first time, and never again the next SEVEN times because he'd do it EVERYTIME HE WAS SURROUNDED BY THE PARTY. He almost killed my drow grave cleric session two and still kept doing it even after being told multiple times to knock it off. Not to mention, Jerry as a player never understood the functionality of the mute button. He had a horrible mic at the start and we heard everything in his busy background and sometimes he'd be driving and the noise of his window being down or just the truck itself would be louder than most of the players. It gotten to the point where Blaine had to install a game vc where push-to-talk was mandatory and even then, he hardly obeyed that. Eventually, there was a part of the campaign where Jerry's paladin left the story because his father came to make him take his place on the throne. Yep. Apparently his paladin was a prince of some sort and was escaping his destiny (would've never guessed but okay). Jerry always seemed to want to make characters that had to be special in some way or another and if that character stops being special, he'll try to kill it off or make a new character like a child who was bored of their toy. We thought it was the end of the stress, but it turns out he took a seat next to Blaine as a Co-DM! Blaine thought since he wasn't really good as a player then maybe he'd be good as a DM because it sounded like more of his speed and his need to be in control of the situation to do what he wants. Unfortunately, Jerry's time as a DM was the worst part of the campaign as it suddenly seemed like everything was out to kill us. We soon found out that even behind the DM screen, Blaine and Jerry regularly disagreed with what was and wasn't good for the party, Jerry was asked to make a few doable areas for the party to run through but instead made everything super deadly and even blatantly ripped off encounters from Critical Role verbatim. Poor Blaine had to scrap and rewrite entire story plots because Jerry revealed and fucked up secrets and storyline way too early for them to be impactful. Even worse, after Blaine kicked him off the DM team, Jerry used all the information he learned from the plot as leverage over the party. We'll talk about THAT after we talk about the child NPC that Jerry played. Since Blaine was a huge fan of a particular DnD podcast called Acquisitions Incorporated, we had an npc that was essentially a malfunctioned child clone from one of the player characters of that podcast since he was part of the story (like a cameo in a way.) Jerry played that character and everything went relatively well... Up until we got to a dungeon that was hidden under the city. Inside there were nodded and nodes to our characters from the previous campaign in the form of statues of the great heroes from the past. We eventually got to the end of the dungeon which was a skylit labatory with a huge gross cocoon in the middle of it. The party all collectively agrees to stay the hell away from the Resident Evil looking egg because it was surely bad news. All the party except Jerry, who had the NPC go OUT OF HIS WAY to open the cocoon, even bypassing our Half-Orc fighter's grapple attempt with teleportation move that the DM had to correct him on. Once the NPC touched the cocoon, it literally sucked ALL the life out of him until he was a shriveled up husk of a person, effectively killing this child. As the cocoon suddenly sprung to life and opened, low an behold it's Jerry's gnome rogue from campaign 1, fully formed as this "Bane Lich of Ragnarok" as he'll be referred to by every NPC and us from now on. That entire dungeon and his gnome rogue was the last of Jerry's input as a Co-DM now that he's successfully inserted his character from our last campaign as the BBEG of our new campaign. Blaine, who wasn't a fan of backtracking had to roll with it and turn it into a plot that the party would actually enjoy and he did a pretty good job at it. Understandably, Jerry eventually did get discontinued as a Co-DM as Blaine saw it was more trouble having him in the DM's seat than in the party. As he was working on a new character to re-enter the party with after a few sessions of not being in the campaign. Blaine had suggested he play his Paladin again but at the last second, Jerry had another idea. The day before the session started, I was feeling the nostalgia of having that callback from our previous campaign and I remembered that my druid ended up in a relationship with Jerry's rogue. Finding it ironic, I made a drawing of a lovechild between our characters and told Jerry about it all while showing him the art and concept I had because I was pretty proud of it at the time. You can see where this is going. Apparently Jerry switched out his paladin to play the child between my and his character without even asking or acknowledging me. He named the kid, put a cloak on it and he was given the okay to go by Blaine who had no idea that he never asked to use the character. The plot of the session he was introduced in was to rescue my drow cleric from a dungeon that the city uses as a jailhouse since he got arrested for being disruptive in public (amongst other things.) We visited the city's casino the session before so it was fun to go throughout the city and see the dumpster fire my character had left behind which were all unbeknownst to me because he was blackout drunk and Blaine took him over. The entire time, Jerry tried to get the party and NPCs to do what he wanted by throwing his name and his connection to the Bane Lich around (keep in mind that he was supposed to be IN HIDING and nobody was supposed to know who he was.) Remember last time when I said he'd use his knowledge as a Co-DM in character? Well he'd do that. A lot. So much so that word by word that came out of this stolen character's mouth was immediately reconned and redirected by Blaine on the spot. He tried to sabotage the party in multiple ways, including selling the party out to the Bane Lich every time he had the opportunity to do so. He even made it clear that he would PRAY to the Bane Lich in secret like the gnome was some sort of deity. His reasoning? To give the Bane Lich more power of course! Even though in the concept I had for the son was that my druid would've kept the father's identity a secret from him in fear that he would follow in his footsteps. When we got to the dungeon, he was in no way any help because the person who put my Drow there was this big beefy Tiefling executioner who could 1000% clap the entire party's cheeks singlehandedly if he wanted to. Blaine had made it clear beforehand that we weren't supposed to fight him so of course, Jerry immediately picked a fight with him which in turn got three of our party members killed including my drow after the party found him passed out there with no hand since he rotted it off to escape his cuffs (That was my choice.) During the attempt to escape and run away he had THE AUDACITY TO FALL ASLEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SESSION. That meant his character wasn't there and then couldn't have taken responsibility for his actions. If it was falling asleep on accident, it would've been a different story. But we heard him ACTUALLY GET IN HIS BED because he NEVER turns on Push to Talk. This also happened after the DM had informed him NOT to get in bed during sessions because he was known to fall asleep. After the session, Blaine ruled that he automatically died in the dungeon because it's only fair to the rest of the party since one of the party members who died wasn't present either. Later, that player got a free revive. Jerry, however, did not. Fast forward, right before we took an in game break. He introduced his new character to the party; a goblin rogue. There was nothing really notable about him other than he was a carbon copy of Jordan's goblin druid in terms of personality and he worked for an evil-aligned NPC in the story and was supposed to watch over the group and report back to them. During the in game downtime, he insisted that he'd go down into the mines that our party was supposed to investigate as a group after the downtime. He made considerable headway and managed to steal plot important artifacts which, of course, he forgot about almost immediately because he didn't write them down in his inventory at all. Then he got upset when Blaine said he didn't have them anymore when we were supposed to come across them. Before that, he spent his downtime essentially winning money from an underground fight pit, jumped at the first opportunity to join a black market rogue organization and then stole from the same house twice after failing the first time. Once he succeeded his little heist, he then demanded from the rogue organization that he'd be moved immediately up the ranks to LEADER for one plunder (which was 1 (one) necklace btw.) The only kinda good thing he did was buy the party gifts with the money he stole. But only to install trust in hopes that the party would trust and like him better. Afterwards when the downtime one-on-one sessions had ended, it was time to search the mines. Unfortunately, we were horribly outmatched and outnumbered for the infernal monstrosity from Blaine's pit of hell that he so cruelly slammed down upon us in the form of a hellfire engine at the very end of the dungeon (I say this with nothing but love in my heart, it was an intense moment that left everyone hanging on the edge of their seats). Two out of the four members that were there died that day; Jordan's druid and my cleric. Rip. Jerry also died trying to go against the hellfire for a magic item Jordan's druid had on her that he wanted for himself. He got too overzealous and went in too far over his head as per usual. He managed to escape the hellfire engine's wrath but funnily enough died inches away from being safe (he failed a check to gain his footing on a bridge and fell 500 feet down into the pit where the hellfire was.) After that, everyone felt relatively bad for him losing his rogue. We thought he was a sweet character but generally was kinda uninteresting to the point where it became a ongoing joke amongst the party of people constantly forgetting who he was. That was until he revealed the fact that if he hadn't died, he would've betrayed and killed the entire party. He even had a gun for no reason and didn't even have proficiency with. None of which was the original idea that he and Blaine had since Blaine actually sat down and gave him advice + a little bit of help building this character. The entire time he played his rogue, he would send constant messages to Blaine about random things or things he wanted to do behind the party's back, a theme you will see very often. The next character he played went without incident and was actually helpful to the party. Nothing I can really think of what was wrong with the character except the fact that it was some weeb samurai concept with the only motivators of "I want to fight the strongest enemy." That and he was a polymorphed dragon I think? I don't remember much from him because he didn't last long. He got petrified, cut of a potential negotiation with a hostile npc, and joined a half-dragon guard squadron to protect a city bay from pirates and then he was gone just like that. Which... Leaves room for his next character and the actual bane of my fucking existence; the return of a certain minotaur.... And something that I will go into great detail on next post as this one is getting too long for my tastes. Stay tuned for next post I guess?
Hello! Welcome or welcome back to Capy's Survivor! We are once again playing the game of outwitting, outplaying, and outlasting your fellow castaways, whether that be by flirtatious behavior, backstabbing your opponents, or making plenty of allies. This is Capy's Survivor: One World! I will not be doing write-ups with the posts because I don't have time. I will instead work on them while I can, and post a post with some of them once I'm done. Meet the Castaways: Manono Tribe:
Harley has always been distant from his family and never really talks to/about them. He enjoys working with birds and has had his job for about 12 years. He often gets mistaken as creepy or intimidating mainly based on his serious demeanor.
Shawn likes to describe himself as an "Athletic Geek". He works as a screenwriter for an animated show, but when he's not writing or watching cartoons/anime, he's working out and playing sports with his friends. He's ready to show survivor how a geek truly wins Survivor.
Michael Krumptone, 47, Band Director (made by u/swoldow)
Michael had dreams of being a musician since he was a kid, and had the drive to learn his craft to the best of his ability.... however the eighties weren't really the most popular time period for french horn players, so he could never get that big break he always thought he'd have, despite getting a music degree. As a result, he grew old and bitter, resenting modern genres of music like rock and rap, as they are what took his career away from him. He does marching band at a few high schools and basically treats it like it's prison camp due to how bitter he is, and he eventually grew to love his job; torturing kids like him into giving up on their dreams. However, he still hates his wife, as he recently had to pick up another school to teach to pay for his ungrateful wife's netflix, so he needs money somehow.
Robert 'R2' Reyes, 25, Medical Student (made by u/Gemini_B)
R2 was raised by Chinese immigrants. They always had the highest expectations for him, and encouraged him to enter the medical field. His life is very stressful though, as he always worries about not being good enough for his parents dreams. In the recent years, his parents have been struggling financially, but refuse to use any money reserved for R2's education. Winning survivor will allow him to continue his schooling and take care of his aging parents.
Karl has always loved the outdoors. He's a very outdoorsy kind of guy, loving adventures of all kind. As a kid, Karl was always a bit of an oddball and an off-beat. Despite it, however, he always managed to surround himself with a good, close group of friends. Karl is an only child, and his mom sadly passed away a short while after he was born. Ever since a young age he had to work in order to help his dad with paying their bills and taking care of their house, which made him quite responsible, surprisingly.
Brett Herman, 28, Poker Player (made by u/Twig7665)
Brett was born into wealth on a mansion in Texas, and lived through most of his childhood in that wealth, until his father was caught up in a huge scandal that left him without money, so at age seventeen Brett ran away to Las Vegas where he could begin a new life. He started playing poker in the streets, and when he was old enough to gamble, he went to a casino, and stunned his opponents by winning the first time he played for money. Soon, people began to realize his talent, and he played in his first professional poker game at the age of 22. Once again, he won, and he became one of the most successful professional poker players in history. This fame caused him to grow arrogant and become a huge jerk, even to his manager. Now rich again, he isn't playing the game for money, he's playing the game to try something new and to gain another title.
Carter was always the baby, even though he was born two minutes before his twin, Matt. This has caused him to be a little immature, leading to him being bullied at school. He later started keeping a diary, which was later found by his girlfriend, Carmen. She understood his life, and the incident brought them closer. She suggested that he become an author and Carter agreed. He has now been married to her and they are planning to have a child soon.
Zed was a famously arrogant pimp and strategist who had a lot of money-making deals with the mob and their women. However, the police arrested him for illegal business and drug dealing. Zed went to jail for several years, until he was finally released, but he had to start from scratch. Now Zed works as a janitor who at least wins some money. Zed learned what he did in the past, but he is still arrogant without going to extremes, and he knows how to control his smile and his brain perfectly.
Angel can be classified as a California Girl, but she also has a "no shit taking" attitude. If she feels that someone is pulling your chain, she'll take action. In this case on Survivor, she'll do what she can to vote your ass out.
Josie was raised with the illusion he had a perfect wife. Her father, Capy's Survivor player Xangetti DeFranco ran a successful real estate business, and her mother was kind and nurturing to both her, and her identical twin sister, but all of that changed when their father mysteriously disappeared from their penthouse, and their mother became distraught, telling Josie her dad got arrested for numerous forms of scamming, and has been hiding from everyone that he has been a loan shark. This of course made Josie very depressed, but her opinions on her parents began to shift further. In that time, her mother became a huge helecoptor mom, not wanting either sibling to do anything bad in fear that they'll lie to her like her husband did, and spread numerous lies to her children about him. However, unlike her twin, Josie has seen through her mom's manipulation tactics, and has been spending every waking moment of her life trying to contact her dad. Trying to get connections to find him, she works as a bartender while lying to her mom about working nights at a library. Her philosophy is that everyone deserves a second chance in life, and she hopes the million will get her financially independent enough where she can live on her own.
Katrina MacQuoid, 58, Prosthodontist (made by u/Gemini_B)
Katrina’s parents we’re performers in Kentucky. They lived and breathed theater and expected their daughter to be the same. Though Katrina loved being the center of attention, and still does, she never loved the stage the way her parents did. Her parents wanted her to continue to pursue something arts related, and she became an advertising adjective, but never felt satisfied. When she learned that Kentucky was looking for jobs in the dental field, she felt it would be a perfect field to enter. She always found teeth interesting, I mean, are they bones? But they fall out? So weird. She returned to school at age 35 and became a Prosthodontist at age 43. She’s worked as a Prosthodontist since then and (While not at the level of Peter) has a firm understanding of the most important hole in the human body, the mouth. While she’s liked by many people because of her fun personality, she has trouble forming 1 on 1 bonds and has never found the special one. As a child she often got in trouble for anger issues with her parents, so she began to hold in her anger and let it out in huge, uncontrollable fits when her parents weren't around. This holding in of anger until she can’t contain it is a habit she continues to have, blaming her rages on “Hurricane Katrina” as a sort of justification of her actions. She’s never left Kentucky and while she’s very book smart, she can often be very ignorant on other subjects.
Tori always had a passion for music and natural talent, and by the time she turned 14 she had already known how to play on almost 9 different instruments. She always wanted to become either a singer, a member of a band or just do something in the music industry. And lo and behold, she became a music producer for some of the bigger known artist. And she's only 27! Tori's already high up in the sky! And now, she wants to take on a brand new challenge. She always manages to overcome EVERYTHING, so this should be a piece of cake to her!
When Lela was 11, she had to deal with a very stressful and traumatic decision, and when her parent's fighting turned physical, she called the police on her own father. Since then, her and her mother had to be strong together, without him. That's when she knew she wanted to help people. When she first told her mom she wanted to be a school psychologist, she didn't really like it, but eventually she decided to follow her dreams and major in psychology. After having a successful career in psychology, Lela's mom still wasn't convinced she was making enough money... so she went on to survive to prove it!
Dixie has grown up with a lot of opinions, and she doesn't hold back on any of them. Growing up in the South, her parents always expected her to eventually take over their small farm. But when Dixie announced to the whole table one night that she wanted to be a fashion designer, her parents were mortified. Dixie was not changing her mind, whether her parents wanted her to or not, and eventually they supported her decision. After she got done college, Dixie has made several successful clothing pieces, under the clothing line "Dixie Chicks". She hopes to win Survivor to promote her company and make her family proud.
Ximena grew up poor and therefore had to start earning money at an early age by delivering stock. On one of her trips, she was kidnapped and abducted by a group of men that worked for a wanted druglord and rapist. She along with her 3 fellow captives were beaten, abused, and raped for 4 years missing and undetected. After years of mistreatment, Ximena and the other captives were finally found and released. Although it was reliving to be free again, she was deeply traumatized by everything her captor did to her and had an extremely tough time trying to adapt to the real world again. She decided to seek help and was sent to a rehab facility where she got help relieve her trauma. One of the things she picked up was the martial arts which eventually developed into an interest in fencing. Despite it being a male dominated sport, Ximena was adamant on showing young girls they can accomplish anything no matter the hardships they’ve gone through. After her time in rehab,she managed to recover and now spends her time competing in championships all around the world. She came to be a voice for domestic abuse victims
Season:Capy's Survivor: One World 18th - The Manono tribe quickly became a world divided (ironic) as R2, Forrest, and Michael decided to form a Final 3 pact. The others heard of this, and Brett, Carter, Harley, Karl, and Shawn formed another alliance to counter it. Zed decided to stay on the outside, as he didn’t feel comfortable aligning with anyone this early. Since they had majority, the 5-person alliance decided to try to take the easy way out, and vote for the leader of the opposing alliance, R2. Little did they know, R2 had an idol, sending Karl packing in a 5*-4 vote. Eliminated: Karl 17th - Much like their fellow tribe, Salani also became a war between 2 alliances, those being Angel-Tori-Toni and ChadBane-Josie-Katrina. Knowing flippers are dangerous, ChadBane-Josie-Katrine decided to vote out one of the swing votes, Lela. Angel-Tori-Toni decided on Katrina, seeing her as a goat to the opposite side, which they did not want moving ahead, they obviously managed to get Lela’s vote. But, ChadBane, Katrine, and Josie managed to convince the other 2, Dixie and Ximena, to flip to their side. Sending Lela packing 5-4. Eliminated: Lela 16th - Manono was back to tribal council. It was a tribe divided between Brett-Carter-Harley-Shawn and Forrest-Michael-R2, alongside swing vote Zed. Zed decided to stick with the 3, because the other 4 were being bullies among the tribe, and just seen as threats. Both sides decided to vote the opposing sides leader-figure, being R2 and Brett. It was a 4-4, but Shawn realized he was only hurting his game by staying loyal to the alliance, so he decided to flip. Sending Brett home on a 4-4; 4-2 vote. Eliminated: Brett. 15th - Salani was back at tribal. The alliances were still going strong. With Ximena and Dixie still in the middle. But, Ximena was trying to be a villainous switch, and the 2 alliances said they only needed 1 swing vote to gain a majority, and that Ximena was being untrustworthy, and they can’t keep someone like that until the merge, because she just had a clashing personality with the rest of the tribe, and it wasn’t sitting well. But, little did they know, Ximena had an idol. So she decided that Toni was her biggest adversary currently in the game, and personally. So she sent her home 7*-1. Eliminated: Toni. 14th - A tribe swap occurs, putting Angel, Dixie, Josie, Katrina, Michael, Tori and Zed onto Manono. With Carter, ChadBane, Forrest, Harley, R2, Shawn, and Ximena on Salani. Salani wins the first post-swap immunity, sending Manono to Tribal Council. Ximena manages to find the Salani idol, meaning Forrest (who found the original Manono idol) and Ximena have idols. At the Manono camp, Tori is already making bad first impressions on Michael and Zed, when they approach the other woman, they agree that they need to take her out. But this is secretly just because the other woman just don’t get along well with Tori, and they don’t want her putting the woman at a disadvantage in the future. So by a unanimous vote of 6-1, Tori is sent packing. Eliminated: Tori. 13th - Salani wins another immunity challenge, sending Manono back to the tribal council. Where Zed and Angel have a fight, and the rest of the tribe has had enough of their little rivalry. But, wanting to be in the good with the men coming into the merge, Josie, Dixie, and Katrine decide it will be the best to vote Angel out, even if it does give them a slight disadvantage. Angel goes out in a 4-2. Eliminated: Angel 12th - The merge occurs, which means Carter, ChadBane, Dixie, Forrest, Harley, Josie, Katrina, Michael, R2, Shawn, Ximena, and Zed made the merge. Katrina wins the first immunity challenge. Back at camp, being very divided during the swap, the alliance of Josie, Michael, Zed, Katrina, and Dixie quickly dissolves. Everyone is targeting Ximena, not knowing she has another idol. But Zed wants to try and help a fellow former swing vote. So he tries to rally the girls in an attempt to boot a guy, but they don’t listen. It was a 10-2 for Ximena, but she uses her idol. Blindsiding Carter. Eliminated: Carter. 11th - ChadBane wins the immunity challenge. Knowing there is no hope anymore for Ximena, Zed decides to try to decrease the target on his back by flipping back over to the other side of the vote, as he knows there is no way he will get votes. Ximena goes out in a 10-1 vote. Eliminated: Ximena 10th - ChadBane wins their second immunity in a row. Back at camp, in an attempt to improve his social game, Zed goes and talks to Josie, and they end up bonding a lot. The girls decide that they need to stop trying to vote out their own, as they are down 6-4 in numbers. Luckily for them, R2, Forrest, and Michael decide it will be for the best to vote out Shawn, as he is doing good in the challenges and has a natural charm. They manage to get Zed on board, as he feels like he is on the outside. The women feel like this is a perfect opportunity to take. Shawn is blindsided 8-2. Eliminated: Shawn. 9th - ChadBane wins their third immunity in a row. Seeing him as a major social and strategic threat on the other side, the girls decide that R2 is their biggest adversary. R2 is also targeting Dixie with all the guys because she is seen as a goat to some of the girls, and she can’t make it to the end. Zed ends up flipping in favor of the girls, as he sees R2’s threat level, and is still trying to seal cracks from defending Ximena. But, R2 knows that the girls being quiet towards his is probably not a good sign, and plays his new-found idol just in case. Blindsiding Dixie 5*-4. Eliminated: Dixie. 8th - R2 manages to win immunity, foiling Zed and the girl’s plans of attempting to flip someone in a tie. The girls decide to target R2’s right hand man, Harley. While the guys decide that challenge beat, ChadBane is their biggest target. Zed, the swing vote, is thinking. now with the girls being in a minority instead of a tied majority, and him seeing ChadBane as a bigger threat, he decides to flip back with the guys. Yet another blindside, with ChadBane going out 5-3. Eliminated: ChadBane. 7th - R2 snags another immunity win. Zed is attempting to reconcile his relationship and alliance with Michael. It works, and he manages to convince Michael that they are not priority, that they are not the priority with the guys, and they will take them out whenever they have a chance. They decide that going with the girls target of Forrest would be good. R2, Forrest, and Harley figure that this is happening, as Michael has been strangely quiet towards them. R2 decides that they are too smart to go for the same target twice in a row, and he tells Forrest to play his idol on himself. He does, blocking 5 votes, and blindsiding Josie. Eliminated: Josie. 6th - Katrina wins her second immunity, pitting the guys against each other. Both alliances approach Katrina, with Zed-Michael targeting R2, and R2-Forrest-Harley targeting Michael. Katrina decides that taking the risky move, and forcing a tie with R2 and Michael is the best bet, as someone might flip to their side, seeing as R2 is a major threat. It does tie, Zed and Katrina know that flipping to Michael is very stupid. Forrest and Harley decide that, even though he is a threat, they will make it farther in the game with R2, and having an 100% chance of losing an ally is better than a 50% chance, it ties again. Forrest, Harley, and Zed draw rocks. Forrest draws the black rock, and is promptly eliminated. Eliminated: Forrest. 5th - R2 wins his third immunity. But, he is also panicking, as he just lost one of his intended goats, and might not be able to save his other, Harley. He gathers Zed, Michael, and Harley and tell them that they need to stick with their original alliance. Michael and Zed find this plan good, as it guarantees them a spot. But, they didn’t expect that R2 does not trust them, and he knows Michael is well spoken, and a jury threat. So he decides last-minute to round up Katrina and Harley to blindside him. Michael joins the many people blindsided this season, going out in a 3-2. Eliminated: Michael. 4th - R2 manages to win Final Immunity, which means he won 4 immunities in all. Wanting his game-long enemy, Zed, out R2 decides that even though bringing Katrina will lose him a few votes, he should take Zed out just in case. Zed is the last one to go home by a 3-1 vote. Eliminated: Zed. Final Tribal Council - R2 manages to win by a vote of 7-2-0, for his well-rounded game, winning 4 immunities, being one of the better strategists this season, orchestrating many blindsides, and playing a great social game. Katrina manages to gather 2 because of her challenge wins and because Dixie and ChadBane were bitter about how they went out. Harley did…. pretty much nothing, so he didn’t get any votes. My thoughts - One of the better seasons in a while. Dominant winner, but also well-rounded. Definitely deserved it. The sheer amount of blindsides and people getting idoled out was overwhelming at times, but also fun to watch. With being on the bottom of the totem pole the whole game, Zed really managed to work it out, I would’ve liked to see a Katrina-Zed-R2 Final 3. I would like to see how that would work out. All-in-all, a good season. I give it a 6.5/10. Potential Returnees: R2, Katrina, Zed, Forrest, Josie, ChadBane, Ximena Leave your thoughts down below!
