The snowstorm outside makes the rickety hut’s walls creak and groan. A skeleton lies outstretched on the simple bed. A crude, faceless wooden puppet hangs by its neck from the ceiling.
Day 83. The chest pains are quite frightening, but when they subside, I feel serene. Proud, even. Never would’ve thought I’d die a natural death. See? Capturing you wasn’t even my final accomplishment. Thanks for keeping me warm through my last days, fool.
There is knocking, then banging on the door; then it flies open. Two men in fur coats walk in, huffing.
“Sorry! We mean no harm! If we may just—whoa.”
“Told you there’s no-one in here. No-one who’d mind, anyway.”
“Yeah. Must’ve been dead for years. Weird, though, the melted snow. And what’s this thing?”
“Close the damn door, will ya.”
Day 79. Flailing and kicking again. As if claiming credit for that stab of pain in my chest this morning. Or else rejoicing maliciously. Oh, but my going will change nothing for you, my friend.
“A bunch of numbers, like a journal or something. Rest is gobbledygook. I suppose he wasn’t from here either.”
“It must be important, though, if he’d rather freeze to death than burn it. Kept the wooden guy, too.”
“I reckon that bastard was spooky enough before he was all bones. Like, what’s it supposed to mean, stringing it up like that? I don’t think he kept it because he liked it. The whole thing looks kinda—what’s the word—revengey.”
“Vindictive. And you know what, that’s actually not the weirdest thing about it. I couldn’t put my finger on it until now. Here, let me try something.”
“The hell are you doing!?”
Day 26. At last, a change of strategy. It’s now keeping still to pretend it’s no longer in there. The only problem? It’s keeping too still. By God, they really are dumb as brutes.
“Close. The fucking. Door!”
“Look at it! Look at it!”
“Close the—right. Now what the fuck was that about?”
“It’s not swinging in the wind. Not even a little.”
“It can’t be that heavy if the rope’s holding.”
“Hey, maybe don’t touch it—”
Day 20. No use grabbing the rope, my friend. Also inflammable. Soaked for two weeks, just like your new and final body.
“It’s hot! It’s terribly hot!”
“Yeah, it did kinda feel too warm in here without a fire, but I thought it was just coming in from the cold and all—”
“And it’s swinging now. We must get out of here.”
“Something’s happening. I’m—I’m—”
Day 17. I knew it would find me even in this cold wilderness. Thankfully I’ve had enough time to prepare the bait. Never can resist a human shape, can you? Well, this one comes with a surprise. Welcome to the rest of eternity, hellspawn.
The screams turn to a deep, ominous roar. The remaining man is standing on the threshold, mouth agape in horror. His coat is glistening. Twin human torches are reflected in his eyes.

2021.10.18 15:40 historyhomie My dad’s response
I’ve been out for a while and I’ve told basically everyone except for my dad because I know how much the church means to him. I finally worked up the courage yesterday, but I was struggling to get the words out.
After a while of my awkward rambling he just said, “the only way I would be disappointed in you is if I thought you weren’t being true to yourself, I love you no matter what you do or believe.” Then a tearful embrace ensued, and I felt like a little kid again. Just a boy and his dad.
I know a lot of people on here don’t get that kind of response and my heart aches for you. Everyone deserves to be loved, supported, and accepted by their own parent.

| Seriously, these 2 back-to-back transactions are on the T&S listing, but suspiciously do NOT reflect on the actual chart. I have seen this activity numerous times, and even have another screenshot from last week, but this volume is, so far, the largest I've captured. Nope, no fuckery here!|

2021.10.18 15:40 Martyrrdom The 1KK BP cap is horrible game design. Why, just why?
Im baffled... Its horrible !!!
Just why would they make this decision? Horrible game design.
I've read some people in the Discord, Reddit, and other forums, say "So you dont Prestige 3, new characters, when they come out"... But this doesnt make any sense. If you grind BEFORE or AFTER the new character, it doesnt really matter.
Im at 950K BP more or less, and Im pretty much gonna stop playing for a couple of days, till Mikaela Reed comes... Because playing, and not getting BP because of the maxed cap, will feel really bad if I try, Im sure.
I mean... What shocks me, its that its one of these gameplay issues, that could literally be changed, in minutes of programming... And yet, they are there forever, and they blatantly affect the gameplay experience of the player, in a negative way.
IDK. The game has a lot of charm... But there are many small things, that just add up, and make it not enjoyable at all.
This has probably been discusses tens of times, but w/e. And here ends my cry.
