[WB] so
[WB] propaganda huh
[CB] That's right.
[CB] The main character is clearly supposed to be an expy of the Goddess.
[CB] But it skips over all of the church's abuses.
[WB] yo uh
[WB] youre preachin to the choir
[WB] pun fully intended
[WB] but are you sure you should be talkin about how bad the church is
[WB] on a device made by the company that owns the church
[WB] kinda feels like youre buckin to get hit by a stray lightning bolt
[CB] Point taken.
[CB] In that case, take ten is a great game wink and I recommend everyone play it wink.
[CB] Definitely without a critical mindset wink.
[WB] now the million gold question is whether or not youre actually winkin when you say that
[CB] I actually have it set up so that when I wink it types the word wink for me.
[CB] It's very advanced.
[WB] oh cool
[WB] does it work for blinkin too
[CB] I don't blink know what blink you're talking blink about.

[WB] okay
[WB] you were one hundred percent right
[WB] that game is straight up propaganda
[CB] See I told you.
[CB] How far did you get.
[CB] Because it gets really bad later on.
[WB] i got through the part where she loses at the magic contest
[WB] it felt like that part was scripted right
[CB] As far as I know.
[CB] If you can win there I'm pretty sure it's a glitch.
[WB] i gotta say too
[WB] its weird how in the games fantasy setting
[WB] everyones usin axsis devices to cast magic
[WB] like
[WB] its glaringly outta place
[CB] They don't want anyone to get ideas I guess.
[CB] Can't have people thinking about quote unauthorized magic.
[CB] Then they'd have people all over the place trying to do magic outside of their closed system.
[CB] Lots of blackeyes for them to round up and disappear.
[WB] yeah i guess
[WB] anyway i at least have to give the game props
[WB] the character design is
[WB] surprisingly good
[CB] I'll have to take your word on it.
[WB] oh right
[WB] sorry
[CB] No it's okay.
[WB] and when its not lickin the churchs boots
[WB] the writing is pretty sharp
[CB] It's insidious that way.
[CB] So what're you doing today.
[WB] hadnt gotten that far honestly
[WB] probably gonna be a lazy piece of shit and just dick around
[WB] you know
[WB] normal break
[WB] gonna be busy tomorrow with whatever my parents are plannin
[CB] Oh yeah that reminded me.
[CB] Mom offered to treat you to a dinner for your birthday.
[CB] Obviously not tomorrow but.
[WB] honestly id rather do that than be with my parents
[WB] but maybe the day after tomorrow
[CB] Okay I'll let her know.
[CB] She told me to tell you to pick out your favorite homemade meal and she'll cook it.
[WB] oh for real
[WB] okay ill get to thinkin about it
[WB] um
[WB] thanks
[WB] like really thanks
[CB] It's cool.
[CB] My mom has her own problems but she still kicks ample ass.
[WB] something something your mom has an ample ass

v "AXSIS CEO Nessa Sly Accepts Lifetime Achievement Award"
3d5mo2117y
At an awards ceremony on the steps of the Church's Cathedral of Shadow, Holy Mother Nepotisa Encompiti presented AXSIS CEO Nessa Sly with the coveted Vandrio Lifetime Achievement Award. Only two other people have ever been presented with the award, and both of them were high-ranking members of the church: Inita Begenna, Holy Mother during the fourth Convention of the Church, and Ione Raptis, long-time bodyguard of several Holy Mothers.

In a short prepared remark, Sly said that she was "honored" by the award and would "continue to march AXSIS down the road of progress, dragging the rest of the world behind kicking and screaming."

For her part, Holy Mother Encompiti stayed awake through the whole ceremony for the first time in three months. Following the acquisition of the Church by AXSIS, the position of Holy Mother has largely been regarded as ceremonial.

v Blackeye Tragedy
The Blackeye Tragedy refers to a specific blackeye sighting and conflict on 2d18mo2116y. Unlike most blackeyes, which are solitary monsters, three blackeyes appeared at the same time in a residential area in Vezretti, Vandrio. One victim was saved from the attack; while unconfirmed, it is likely that the blackeyes were relations of the victim. While the blackeyes were contained without any major damage being done to the surrounding area, the event is still nonetheless referred to as a tragedy due to the circumstances surrounding the blackeyes and the victim.

Embedded image description: a map of the Vandrio region with major towns and cities labeled.

VANDRIO

Location: Continent of Alverdi; west of the Becdeni region; bordered by the Losdat Sea; southeast of the Emek Archipelago; northeast of the continent of U Hao
Comparative area: Similar in size to the region of Alzabata; twice the size of the continent of Erdric
Climate: Wet, foggy, mild winters and summers
Imports: Minerals, textiles, electronic components
Exports: Grapes, wine, beef, religion, electronics, machinery

Notable population centers:

Vezretti: A major player on the world stage, as both the seat of the Church and the worldwide headquarters of the AXSIS Corporation are located here. Popular for pilgrimages from all over the world and crowded on days of religious significance.
Port Braski: The region's main seaport. Though Vezretti has the largest airport in Vandrio, Port Braski still sees regular traffic for shipping.
Berende: A rural town far away from the more heavily populated areas of Vandrio. Home to the majority of the region's vineyards and farms.
Forts Lago, Vertice, Settone, and Ovest: These forts sit at the northeastern, northwestern, southwestern, and southeastern points of the region and are owned in full by the AXSIS Corporation. They have not been used for conflicts between regions - their intended purpose when constructed - for decades, and now they are mostly used as headquarters for the Vandrian branch of the AXSIS Law Familiarity Operatives.

v AXSIS

"We help you get the most out of life!"

Founded by Nessa Sly on 12d2mo2074y, AXSIS began as a humble software company. Thanks to Sly's leadership, AXSIS quickly became the dominant software provider to the world in less than two years; shortly thereafter, AXSIS branched out into hardware, with their first product being the original AXSIS handheld computing device.

Originally located on South Dola Island, the company's headquarters moved to Vezretti in Vandrio after it became clear that they would need more space. As AXSIS grew, it acquired many other companies and expanded until, in no small part due to its convenient and easy-to-use products, it became the de facto computing resource throughout the world.

After governments the world over understood how helpful AXSIS and its products were, they all voluntarily handed control to AXSIS' board of directors, headed by Nessa Sly, during a single week later known and celebrated as the AXSIS ConvenienceWeek. Following the approval of the Goddess of Shadow, AXSIS also acquired the Church, including the Cathedral of Shadow in Vezretti.

Only one region in the entirety of the world has no AXSIS presence: Momotto, in Merset.

[WB] good morning maam
[TT] Good morning, Fiametta! How're you?
[WB] uh
[WB] worried i guess
[TT] Oh dear, what's going on?
[WB] well
[WB] its like this
[WB] tomorrows my birthday
[TT] Happy early birthday!
[WB] thanks
[WB] my parents are takin me out to dinner
[WB] and i found out its gonna be this big deal
[WB] like a bunch of my familys gonna be there
[WB] and none of them know about me
[WB] like
[WB] about me about me
[WB] you know what i mean
[TT] Yes, I follow.
[WB] and like
[WB] it was already gonna be bad
[WB] since im gonna have to dress up
[WB] and everyones gonna call me handsome and darlin son and all that
[WB] but now theres gonna be way more people
[WB] includin my cousins who are both girls
[WB] like nobody thinks theyre guys i mean
[WB] and my dad likes that im a guy
[WB] or rather that he thinks im a guy
[WB] since he was worried hed get a daughter too when both of my cousins were girls
[WB] and its just gonna be sad and uncomfortable the entire time
[WB] and i dont wanna do it
[WB] but i gotta
[TT] Why is that? Why do you have to, I mean?
[WB] i mean
[WB] my parents planned this whole thing
[WB] as a surprise
[WB] and its only cause my cousin cant keep a secret that i know
[WB] and you cant talk my mom outta anything
[WB] and if i have to explain why its gonna be bad news
[TT] Hm. I see.
[TT] First, let me say that I'm sorry you're in this position. It's not something I have a lot of experience with personally, but I have a few ideas, if you'd like to hear them.
[TT] If you just want to vent, I understand that too.
[WB] nah
[WB] hit me with what you got
[WB] maam
[TT] All right. So the way I see it, you have three options.
[TT] First, you can go to the dinner. Grin and bear it. It may not be pleasant, but it's only one evening.
[WB] okay
[WB] bein upfront im not super wild about this plan
[TT] I didn't think you would be, which is why I put it first so we could get it behind us.
[WB] smart
[TT] I thought so. Now, option two is that you disappear for the evening. Go find a friend to spend some time with. Maybe Makani - I'm sure the two of you could find something to do for an evening that wouldn't put you near a restaurant. Then, when the night is over, you go back home and make up an excuse about how you lost track of time or something.
[WB] hmmm
[WB] that ones more promisin but i bet my mom would call the agents or something when she couldnt find me
[WB] plus then shed probably reschedule the dinner anyway
[TT] True. Which brings us to option the third:
[TT] Come out of the closet.
[TT] To your whole family.
[WB] whoa okay thats not happenin
[TT] Why not?
[WB] id be murdered in the middle of a fine dinin establishment
[WB] everyone knows youre not supposed to cause a scene in the middle of a fine dinin establishment
[WB] but nonetheless im pretty sure my dad would straight up knock my head clean off my shoulders in the middle of a fine dinin establishment
[TT] Are you sure?
[WB] well no
[WB] its not like i have experience with this
[WB] but my dad gets
[WB] angry
[WB] and on top of that my mom would get all emotional
[WB] and shed be disappointed in me
[WB] not to mention the rest of my family

[WB] id be homeless
[WB] with nothin
[TT] It breaks my heart to hear that that's even a possibility, Fiametta.
[TT] I want you to know this.
[TT] If anything happens, you can consider my home a sanctuary.

v AXSIS ConvenienceWeek

AXSIS ConvenienceWeek refers to both a specific date and a week-long holiday celebrated yearly.

On 7d5mo2080y, AXSIS CEO Nessa Sly unveiled a campaign aimed at convincing citizens the world over that their governments would be better off in the hands of the AXSIS board of directors. She spent the following week traveling to every major region in the world, speaking with their heads of state. The campaign was a success, and by 12d5mo2080y, nearly every government - with one notable exception (see: Momotto) - had voluntarily handed control over to AXSIS.

The second week of 5mo, from 7d to 12d, was thus designated as AXSIS ConvenienceWeek and celebrated yearly. That week is guaranteed vacation time except for AXSIS employees, with some areas even mandating the entire 5mo as vacation.

v Blackeyes

Embedded image description: a picture of a fully-grown blackeye

Blackeyes are the colloquial term for the monsters that form from people who use magic unauthorized by AXSIS. In their fully-grown form, they can grow to be roughly 1.5 times the size of an average human; they also have a coat of iridescent scales and long, serrated teeth. While it can take a variable amount of time for them to reach maturity, they all do so within a month of the offending spell, with repeated castings speeding up the maturation time.

Once a human has cast an unauthorized spell, they shortly grow a pair of horns from their head and their sclera turn black. From there, the transformation into a blackeye and the resulting loss of identity and humanity are unavoidable.

Blackeyes are significantly stronger than the average human, able to completely destroy an AXSIS DomicileUnit within an hour. Some blackeyes are capable of continued usage of the spell that prompted their transformation in the first place, but this is rare.

There have been no documented cases in which a human who used unauthorized magic did not turn into a blackeye.

v Magic

Magic refers to the manipulation of ambient maghons in the atmosphere to produce a desired effect. Manipulation of ambient maghons in the same way will always result in the same result, known in the vernacular as 'spells'. Most AXSIS devices come equipped with an AXSIS MaghonEnforcer, which can manipulate ambient maghons with a precision not achievable through manual means. Manipulating ambient maghons through manual means can and does introduce randomness into the spell, which results in maghon backlash, which induces the transformation into a blackeye.

Any rumor that magic used to be able to be cast safely without an AXSIS MaghonEnforcer should be regarded as false.

v AXSIS MagicCouncil

The AXSIS MagicCouncil is the governing body of AXSIS' MagicUse division. Their primary purpose is to determine which magic spells are safe to use via AXSIS Cast and, upon finding an unfilled niche, when to begin the creation of a new spell.

The AXSIS MagicCouncil was formed in the aftermath of AXSIS ConvienceWeek. The members of the AXSIS MagicCouncil are all AXSIS administrators, and the composition of the AXSIS MagicCouncil has changed multiple times since its formation, though AXSIS CEO Nessa Sly has consistently been the lead councilwoman.

Any spell not approved by the AXSIS MagicCouncil is unauthorized.

Embedded image description: a picture of Nessa Sly in the AXSIS HeadOffice

Nessa Sly, the CEO of AXSIS, is a figure shrouded in mystery, despite what her public persona would suggest. Very little is known about her history; in fact, there are no records of her dating to before the founding of AXSIS at all.

As CEO of AXSIS since its founding, Nessa Sly has directed it from a humble software company to a worldwide megaconglomerate, culminating in AXSIS ConvenienceWeek, which handed her de facto control over governments the world over.

Nessa Sly rarely appears in public except in tightly-controlled pre-scripted events, such as product announcements or award ceremonies with no live audiences.

Yes, I acknowledge that if you follow that rule directly, you'll end up at the answer you're claiming. However, because of the way the initial problem is written, it's hard to say whether or not that method is the intent. The vagueness of the formatting gives the options of multiple interpretations. Just make sure to use parentheses in the future and you can avoid that problem.

I'm afraid you've got my motivations wrong - I'm not trying to lecture anyone. As my students could tell you, if I were trying to lecture you, you'd know, haha! I simply don't like seeing misinformation, especially concerning a special interest of mine, being perpetuated.

POST: Re: Nobody can solve this math problem!
AUTHOR: TimesTabled
CONTENT: [click to view previous posts in this thread]
So the problem is two-fold: first, order of operations as most people are taught it is a lie, and second, the original problem is written very ambiguously.

Let’s drill down into that first point.

Brackets, powers, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. Everyone’s taught to do operations in that order! Except that’s not really right. As a math teacher of mine put it, “it works for now, but you’ll find out I was lying in a few years.”
The problem is that multiplication and division are the same operation, and addition and subtraction are also the same operation. Division is really just multiplying by a fraction, and subtraction is just adding a negative. With that in mind, it doesn’t necessarily make sense to do some multiplication arbitrarily early in the problem before the rest! As a result, here’s the bottom line for that point:

Both answers are right.

How can that be?

Well, that brings me to the second point: the expression is written very ambiguously, so as to maximize confusion! It’s also why I don’t like using the division symbol when a fraction will do just nicely.

Observe two other ways we could write this expression:

Embedded image description: A mathematical expression

Embedded image description: A mathematical expression

The first one resolves to the first answer, and the second resolves to the second. Both are right, only because the original expression is vague.

The sad thing is that everyone hates fractions, when actually they make life so much nicer!

POST: Re: Sienna's motivations?
AUTHOR: CrashedBurnt
CONTENT: [click to view previous posts in this thread]
Look RS it's useless to try and speculate on this point. The game is nothing more than a naked propaganda tool put out by the Church and AXSIS. Any deeper meanings into motivations or anything like that are going to be worthless since I would bet money the developers didn't care that much about character development. Even if the writing itself is good it doesn't mean much since the story can't back it up.

> AXSIS News: "What little we know..."

Welcome to AXSIS News 8.0.3!

v "What very little we know about SuburbanSprawl, the developer of The Suburbs"
12d3mo2117y
After The Suburbs came out of nowhere to firmly plant itself in the list of most-downloaded games on AXSIS Net, all eyes turned to its developer, SuburbanSprawl, for answers on the game's scope, its meaning, and its long-term plans.

Unfortunately, SuburbanSprawl proved difficult to locate, with their age, their gender, and even their name staying hidden from public view. The only known contact anyone has had with SuburbanSprawl has been through the game's discussion forum on AXSIS Net, where the reclusive dev occasionally posts patch notes.

An AXSIS TextAnalyser analysis of SuburbanSprawl's posts on AXSIS Net indicated that the user could potentially have been one of two people: either Gnarles Ruffley, a 24-year-old Erdric native, or Ramira Lott, a 72-year-old Ginde native. Unfortunately, both Ruffley and Lott had died within the past three months due to lightning-related incidents. Nevertheless, SuburbanSprawl continues their work on the game.

Perhaps more information about SuburbanSprawl will come to light when The Suburbs finally leaves beta and formally releases, but based on their behavior up to this point, it seems unlikely.

POST: some bullshit
AUTHOR: WitchesBlue
CONTENT: i hate this position im in
like im out to some people but not others and the ones im not are my family and it suuuuuuucks
cant even wear the clothes i want cause i still gotta live with them
dont even think about me wearin makeup my dad would murder me
and everyone calls me their handsome little boy or whatever
and i kinda wanna shoot myself in the head whenever i hear it
like i dont wanna be dead
but i want all of that to stop
i just want the world to stop except for me and my friends
so that all the shit thats goin on can freeze and we can have a chance to breathe
but thats not ever gonna happen not even if i unlock every axsis spell
on top of all that i got this dinner tomorrow for my birthday
and everyones lookin forward to it but me
i dont wanna go
i just really dont wanna be there its gonna be so bad
someone just come and whisk me away on the back of a hummerbike or something
is it too much to ask for
just some beautiful woman appearin outta nowhere to take me away from it all
and then i never have to deal with any of it ever again

[WB] hey ms k everything all right
[TT] I should be asking you the same question!
[WB] i just mean like
[WB] uh
[WB] your response on weblog kinda got cut off
[TT] Oh nuts, it did? Hold on, let me check that.
[TT] Ah, I see. I must have gotten distracted and hit the send button too early.
[TT] I just meant to say that while we may not live in a cottage, we've still carved out a nice life for ourselves, even if it did take us quite some time
[WB] you and your wife always seem so happy ms k
[WB] i just want to have that
[TT] Far be it from be to predict the future, but I suspect you will.
[TT] You don't strike me as the sort of person to just give up on something so important to you.
[TT] I think you'll be able to wrest your happiness from the jaws of any beast that tries to keep it from you.
[WB] you have such a way with words ms k
[TT] My wife is an author, after all! Some of it must have rubbed off on me.
[WB] thanks for talkin to me
[WB] i think im gonna go to sleep early today
[WB] tomorrows a big day after all
[WB] need my beauty sleep
[TT] Of course. Good luck. Remember that you can always stay here if you need to.
[WB] right
[WB] night ms k
[TT] Good night, Fiametta.

[MM] Really?? It''s good,, but I thought it was the weakest on the album......
[RS] oh... sorry.
[MM] What''re you apologizing for?? You''re allowed to have your own opinion..
[MM] Even if it is a completely wrong one..
