Chapter 1 <-- You are here.
I’m a nervous person. I took up smoking to stop biting my nails. It didn’t work, and now I have two bad habits. Usually I don’t even have a reason for the biting, I just get anxious and chewing off bits of myself calms me down. It’s vaguely cannibalistic. My wife hates it. She used to check my hands before bed and then refuse to have sex with me if I didn’t pass the inspection. I can live without sex, but not without biting my nails or smoking. She thinks I cheated on her. She also thinks I’m a coward, but in her defence she has no idea that I saved her life. Right now she’s asleep because it’s three in the morning, and I’m out on the balcony having a cigarette and trying to figure out the best way to confess to a crime. The thing that keeps distracting me is the moon. It’s as yellow as my dentist says my teeth are going to be if I don’t stop with the cigarettes. Frankly I think drinking coffee is worse for discolourations than smoking, but whatever. My thesis sponsor says I pepper my casual writing with slang to balance the rigidity of my academic prose. She calls it my “learned” prose. I call it my thecal style.
Anyway, I’m getting off topic. I was describing the yellowness of the moon. Tom Waits has a good line about it being the colour of a coffee stain, and that’s about right. The night’s bright as far as nights go but that moon keeps staring at me like a jaundiced eyeball. I should have had a drink before coming out here. I’d go in and get one but I’m afraid I’ll wake my wife, and she’ll blink and her hair will look like a leafless winter tree surrounding a Grumpy Cat face. That’s a proper noun, Grumpy Cat. It has its own Wikipedia page, like Napoleon and Georg Hegel. The article starts: “Tardar Sauce (April 4, 2012 – May 14, 2019), nicknamed Grumpy Cat, was an American Internet celebrity cat. She was known for her permanently 'grumpy' facial appearance, which was caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism.” Keep that in mind when you read my confession because it’s a crazy fucking world we live in.
My thesis sponsor says I never make sufficiently elegant segues. She says my paragraphs are too long and that my conclusions come at the reader out of nowhere like argumental hyenas. I’m surrounded by difficult women. I’m reconsidering my confession, but that moon keeps reflecting its piss coloured light at me and I’m sick of just writing my thesis, sentence by footnoted sentence. Theses. It even sounds vile. If any of my neighbours are watching they probably think I’m ridiculous sitting out here in my boxers and bathrobe, smoking cigarette after cigarette and typing on a laptop, but in my defence it’s the twenty-first century and this is how twenty-first century murderers let it all out. I used to think it ridiculous that anyone could say the moon is made of cheese, but now I kind of get it. I’m hungry and I have a heavy heart. Two days ago I overpowered a level twenty-six dwarf, stabbed it in the neck, beat it with a shovel and sliced open its throat before transferring what remained of its body to a 3.5” diskette that Wayne and I secretly uploaded to a computer in the library.
Wayne’s my best friend and accomplice. He owns a little computer repair shop in town that I spend time in whenever my wife gets her Grumpy Cat face, and that’s where I’ll start my confession.
It was a Monday afternoon and some guy came in with an old IBM Thinkpad that he’d bought off Ebay and that he wanted Wayne to fix. “What’s the problem?” Wayne asked.
“BIOS doesn’t work,” the guy said.
Wayne booted the laptop and the BIOS was password protected. “What’s the password?”
“How should I know? That’s why I came here,” the guy said.
“What am I supposed to do?” Wayne asked.
“Hack that shit.”
Wayne traded him a newer, shittier used Dell for it and the guy signed a contract and walked out happy.
I asked Wayne what he was going to do with the Thinkpad.
“Sell it,” he said. “To someone who doesn’t know what a BIOS is, for more than I paid for that Dell.”
Wayne could do that, make money while making two people happy. I didn’t have that kind of business sense. My wife said it was because nobody took me seriously the way they took Wayne seriously. I asked her why. She said it was because Wayne had dark, curly hair whereas I had blonde hair that was so thick and straight it made me look boyish and perpetually out of date. “Would you want to be with a guy like Wayne instead of a guy like me?” I asked. “If I could be with a guy like Wayne I never would have married you,” she said.
“Hey, Wayne,” I called out. He was sorting invoices and I was sitting behind a table in the far corner of the store, working on my thesis. He turned around holding a bunch of papers. “Have you ever slept with Annie?”
“No, man.”
“But would you?”
“I might,” he said. “Are you offering?”
I said I wasn’t. He went back to sorting invoices.
My laptop screen flickered.
Wayne started humming the main theme from Super Mario Bros.
My laptop died.
“Hey, Wayne,” I said. “How much do you want for that Thinkpad?”
He read an invoice. “One hundred sixty.”
“I know what a BIOS is,” I said.
“Is yours dead?”
“Yeah.”
He took the Thinkpad off the counter, walked over to the table I was sitting behind and set the Thinkpad down. “On the house, buddy.”
I picked up my dead laptop. “At least take mine for parts.”
“It’s cool. I did sleep with Annie once. It was before you got married but it’s still probably worth a Thinkpad,” he said.
Wayne’s a pretty good guy and I didn’t care about the BIOS. I just wanted something with metal hinges that I could write on. I didn’t even need a hard drive because I ran Puppy Linux off a USB stick and saved all my files to Dropbox. My thesis sponsor didn’t think that was possible. When I plugged my USB stick into her desktop’s USB port and booted entirely into her RAM, she said, “Why did you make my Windows lose its pleasant appearance?”
I never should have booted that Thinkpad.
It had a USB port but the boot order was apparently hard drive first, so I booted into Windows XP and explored the file structure for a while because it was a form of procrastination that didn’t weigh on my conscience. There wasn’t much installed.
“You should wipe the drive before you do anything,” Wayne said.
I went down the list of directories in Windows Explorer. It looked pretty much like a fresh install. Other than the operating system, the laptop also had an old version of Office and an anti-virus suite installed. I changed the views options in Explorer to what I liked: detailed view and show hidden files checked on. “By the way, what are the specs on that thing?” Wayne asked.
“Hang on,” I said. Something had caught my eye. There was a hidden directory in root filled with text documents numbered from one to sixty-four. I opened the first. It held a single character. e. I opened the next. 8. I opened a few more at random and the contents of those were single characters, too. “Wayne,” I said.
“Yo?”
“There’s a hidden folder in C: and it has sixty-four text files with a number or letter in each.”
Wayne put down his invoices. “Exactly sixty-four?”
“Yeah,” I said. I noticed something else. “And it’s strange, because the creation dates of the files are all exactly two months apart.”
“That’s like a span of ten years.”
Nothing else on the hard drive caught my eye.
“It could be the BIOS password,” Wayne said. “Those get up to sixty-four characters long.” He scratched his chin. “But before you check that, do a search for jpegs. Sometimes people leave naked pics of their wives and girlfriends sitting around.”
“There’s plenty of those online.”
“But those are public, buddy. These would be private, known by only a few people and us.”
There weren’t any photos.
I took out my phone, opened a fresh document and typed in the characters from the numbered files on the Thinkpad hard drive. Then I rebooted and pressed the key to get into the BIOS. A password prompt came up. I entered the sixty-four characters staring at me from my phone screen and hit Enter. Bingo. Wayne was waiting for a response. “We’re in,” I said.
Except we weren’t in.
The screen had become a black command prompt. “Wait, I think the BIOS is broken,” I said.
Wayne came over to take a look.
He hit a button.

Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
“The fuck?”
Wayne hit another key.
Error. Name cannot be blank. Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
“It looks like some kind of role-playing game,” I said, stating the obvious.
“Reboot again,” Wayne said.
I did. The text disappeared, the hard drive whirred, and when the Thinkpad returned to life it booted straight to the same command prompt and the same line of text without even asking for the password.
“Does it boot off a USB?” Wayne asked.
“It didn’t before,” I said. But I tried it anyway. No luck. The screen turned off, turned on and then we were back at:
Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
We tried booting off a CD.
Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
“Well, that’s a useless piece of junk,” Wayne said.
So much for writing my thesis.
“Have you ever seen anything like this before?” I asked.
“Never, bud.”
“What do you think it is?”
“I don’t know. But keeping in mind I’m not a technician, just a guy who sells used computers and sometimes installs Skype and Acrobat Reader for people who type with one finger, I’d say the thing’s been set to boot off a device with some sort of game on it.”
“You mean we set it to that,” I said. “Because it booted from the hard drive before.”
“By typing in the password?”
“I guess.”
“Then either we changed the boot order without knowing it or this is the BIOS,” Wayne said. “Type something in. See what happens.”
I dangled my fingers over the keyboard, trying to think of a good name for an adventurer.
Wayne cleared his throat.
I typed in John, and quickly followed with Grousewater.
John Grousewater, an envoy from his excellency, Prince Verbamor of the Principality of Xynk, has arrived at the door of your remote stone hut. The envoy tells you that the Prince requests an immediate audience with you. Do you accept? yes 
The screen flashed white, then beeped a midi theme and displayed a white-on-black title screen baring the words “Xynk: An Interactive Quest”. Below were the names of its two developers, Tim Birch and Olaf Brandywine. I hit a key. A pixelated horse began to inch its way across a pixelated mountainous landscape.
The Principality of Xynk is on the other side of the world. Your journey was long and treacherous. 
“How old is this?” Wayne asked.
The screen flashed and a bolt of lightning appeared above the mountains.
But finally you made it. 
“No idea,” I said.
The landscape disappeared, replaced by the command prompt.
After paying for two nights of lodgings at THE YAWNING MASK, you pat your trusty horse, NIGEL, and make your way on foot to the massive structure that looms over the entirety of the city-state of Xynk, the famous CASTLE MOTHMOUTH. [OB: almost done intro description, will add soon] “I have summoned you, John Grousewater, because your exploits are known throughout the land. As you see, Xynk is in grave danger and needs your help. The enemy is already within. Only a reversal of the spell using the very same AMULET OF VERMILLION will thwart the evil plans of the HOODED RAT BROTHERHOOD and save us. Only you possess the ability to locate the amulet somewhere in Xynk and prepare the ingredients necessary to cast the reversal. John Grousewater, the reward for success will be great. Do you accept the mission?” 
I read through the text twice before realizing that Wayne was looking at me. “Well, do you accept?”
yes Xynk: An Interactive Quest is a text adventure game. It is recommended that before you begin, you read the HELP FILE. To do so now or at any time, type: READ HELP. 
I typed READ HELP.
This is placeholder text [TB: We need a help file asap] 
Wayne pulled up a chair and sat down beside me. “That wasn’t very helpful. You ever played one of these before?”
“I think I know the basics,” I said.
ROOM IN THE YAWNING MASK You are in your room in the Yawning Mask. It’s bare and empty, which suits an adventurer like you just fine. In the room, you see a TABLE and a WINDOW. The only DOOR leads WEST into the HALL. 
“So do your stuff, hot shot. Let’s see what this baby’s all about.”
examine table It’s a wooden table. It’s empty. examine window You walk to the window and look out. A cheap view for a cheap room. You see the ALLEY behind The Yawning Mask. Directly below the window, NIGEL and several other horses are eating feed from a trough. 
Bells dinged as a woman walked into the store. Wayne turned his chair to face her. It made an awful scraping sound. “May I help you?”
“My computer’s broken,” she said.
“What’s wrong with it?”
“I can’t Skype.”
“Is Skype installed?” Wayne asked.
“I don’t really know how to check that,” she said. “It worked yesterday.” Wayne patted me on the shoulder and got up to work his magic at the front counter.
I vaguely heard them talking as I refocused on Xynk.
talk to Nigel Nigel stops drinking for a moment and looks up. He’s the best horse you’ve ever had, and you hope he thinks the same about you. talk to Nigel about Xynk Nigel neighs. 
I’d played Zork once or twice online, so I had a grip on how these games worked. Usually, half the trouble was getting the game to understand what you wanted to do. Half the tedium was reading the same messages over and over again. To remind myself, I typed:
examine room ROOM IN THE YAWNING MASK You are in your room in the Yawning Mask. It’s bare and empty, which suits an adventurer like you just fine. In the room, you see a TABLE and a WINDOW. Someone has slid a NOTE under the door. The only DOOR leads WEST into the HALL. 
A note? I scrolled up to see if that had been in the first description of the room. It hadn’t.
examine note There is no such object. “Go to EAST STORE ROOM in CASTLE MOTHMOUTH” 
That was odd. I tried examining the note again and got the same result, an error message followed by a line of output. So I tried examining a few made-up objects that the game had never mentioned, like a “lantern”.
There is no such object “Go to EAST STORE ROOM in CASTLE MOTHMOUTH” 
And:
examine ipod There is no such object “Go to EAST STORE ROOM in CASTLE MOTHMOUTH” move W YAWNING MASK HALL You are standing in the hall. Your ROOM is to the EAST. A staircase leads DOWN. 
I went down, and navigated my way out of The Yawning Mask after noting on my phone that the Innkeeper seemed like he could be a font of information about Xynk. I’d talk to him later. Now, I made my way through the city toward Castle Mothmouth. I stopped hearing Wayne discuss how to add and remove software in Windows 7 and started hearing the din of Xynk amidst the clicking of the Thinkpad keys. I passed The Pierced Snout Tavern and The Local Alchemist, peeked into The Library, and noted the names of all the various neighbourhoods that the command prompt threw at me. Although some of the descriptions in the game were unfinished, most were sparsely vivid and the world itself was detailed and huge. Xynk was a living and breathing place, at least as real as a text-based San Andreas.
At some point, Wayne scraped his chair and sat beside me again. “How’s the adventure going, Grousewater?” he asked.
“I’m following what the note said and going to Castle Mothmouth.”
“Or you could work on your thesis.”
I smirked. “Thanks, Annie.”
Then I remembered that Wayne had slept with her before I ever had, and the thought made me jealous.
“Seriously, buddy. I’m all about wasting time playing video games, but the ones I play usually have graphics and guns, and don’t you have a meeting with your whatever-her-name is at the university in like two days?”
I did. I sighed.
save Command unknown. Type HELP FILE for help. save game Command unknown. Type HELP FILE for help. 
“Fuck.”
Wayne picked up my phone and read the notes I’d made. “What’s the matter? Did you get shivved by a homeless dude in”—He squinted.—”Vagrant’s Quarter?”
“I don’t know how to save,” I said.
Wayne grabbed the Thinkpad’s power cord and yanked it out of the socket. The Thinkpad shut off. “The bad thing about buying used laptops,” Wayne said, “is that usually their batteries don’t work.”
I was about to reply in a witty fashion when my phone rang—
Wayne tossed it to me.
It was Annie. I accepted the connection. “Hello, honey bun,” I said. “What’s up?”
“Where the hell are you?”
“I’m…” Wayne pointed with his chin at a clock on the wall. “Shit,” I said into the phone. I’d been at Wayne’s for over three hours. How long had I been playing Xynk? It didn’t seem anywhere near that long. My wife launched into an accusatory reminder that I was supposed to pick up a bag of potatoes on the way home and that I was supposed to be home by five, and that it was now almost six, and that the turkey was going to be too dry, and I moved the phone away from my ear and shrugged my shoulders at Wayne despite knowing that my wife was right. “Wherever you are, just get the potatoes and get home now,” she said, and ended the call. It had long ago stopped being a blow to my ego that my wife never suspected me of having an affair.
“I’ve gotta run,” I said to Wayne. I put my phone in my pocket, closed and picked up the Thinkpad, and rolled up and picked up its power cord.
Wayne crossed his arms.
“You should leave that piece of junk here,” he said.
I waved and was out the door.
I bought the potatoes at the nearest grocery store, paying nearly double what I should have because the store catered to the upper middle-class with ceramic tiles and good lighting unlike the immigrant-focused Food Basics I usually shopped at.
I called my wife to tell her the potatoes were on their way, but she didn’t answer. Maybe she was having an affair.
I also kept thinking about the note by the door in John Grousewater’s room in The Yawning Mask. What could possibly be in Castle Mothmouth’s east storage room, and who’d delivered the glitchy message? I’d have to try to talk to the Innkeeper about it. Maybe he saw someone come in.
I pulled into my driveway, put the laptop under my arm, grabbed the bag of potatoes with my hand and went in through the garage. Annie was waiting in the kitchen, playing a match-three fruit game on her tablet. “Nice of you to finally make it,” she said.
I apologized, saying I’d lost track of time working on my thesis.
“At least I don’t have to worry about you having an affair,” she said as she was getting the turkey out of the oven.
It was dry.
After dinner we drank coffee together. I watched her swipe her finger to match bananas, kiwi and watermelons. What if the note is a trap? I thought. It could be from the Hooded Rat Brotherhood. Then again, was the Hooded Rat Brotherhood actually evil? They had a name that sounded evil, but Prince Verbamor seemed shady too. I understood his need to bring in an outsider to solve the quest because the Hooded Rat Brotherhood had infiltrated Xynk’s own police force and Verbamor didn’t know who to trust, but I also remembered an old British horror movie about an outsider who comes to an island to investigate a crime and ends up burned alive in a giant wicker man as part of an elaborate pagan ceremony.
When Annie stopped talking between levels of her mobile game, I got the bright idea to search for Xynk online.
Google search brought up 273,000 matches but none about the Xynk I was looking for. Google Books didn’t yield any fruit either. Although that wasn’t entirely surprising—after all, the game was old and clearly unfinished—there was something inexplicably creepy about anything that existed in the real world without leaving a trace of its existence on the internet. I decided to try Googling the names of the two developers instead.
They did exist.

2020.09.28 20:07 CapybaraWookiee Real hidden wife cheating

Hello! Welcome or welcome back to Capy's Survivor! This season we are headed to Redemple Temple! 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: Redemple Temple! 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:
Ometepe Tribe:
First off, the captain of this tribe:

Now the newbies:
Zapatera Tribe:
First up, we have the returnee captain:
Next, because spots weren't filling, I filled them with two characters of my own:
Now for the newbies, you guys created:

Season: Capy's Survivor: Redemple Temple
20th- Kruseman- Being a returnee, he already had a target on his back, and he knew it. He tried to form an alliance with Lita, Talie, and Justine, who he knew were already close, but they already decided to make Noujir their pet goat. He also noticed an alliance forming between Art, Bridgette, and Gabriel, which he wanted to take advantage of. So he approached Darci and told them that the 3 females were too much of a threat and they should take them out. Both Darci and the other alliance agreed. But Darci thought Kruseman was more of a threat, making him the first boot in a 5-4 vote.
19th- Noujir- Zapatera continued their losing streak, and it was a tale of two alliances. They both tried to get Darci, and she decided to stay loyal. The other alliance knew this, and Talie found the idol, but she decided that it would be best not to use it, as they could gain trust in a revote. The other side decided that it would be best to take out the goat instead of the challenge beasts. It was a 4-4, with Talie's alliance shocked she didn't play the idol. She then proceeded to flip, causing Noujir to go home on a 4-2 revote.
Redemption Duel 1- Kruseman beat Noujir
18th- Bridgette- Even though they are already in enough of a minority, Talie wants to throw the immunity challenge, because she says they might get lucky in a tribe swap. She does end up throwing it, and Zapatera is sent to yet another tribal council. Darci approaches the Coven, as Justine, Talie, and Lita have dubbed themselves. She tells them that Bridgette is going, they agree to this. But then, Justine has an idea, she has Talie approach the other side, as they know she flipped, and tells them this info, they just argue with Talie, and say that it will just be a blindside, which seals Bridgette’s fate instead of Darci’s because they voted Talie, which the Coven knew they would, so Bridgette goes home in a 4-3 vote.
Redemption Duel 2- Kruseman beats Bridgette
17th- Art- Zapatera loses yet another immunity challenge to the now overpowering Ometepe tribe. At their camp, both the Coven and Art and Gabriel approach Darci, as the swing vote. She decides that a rock draw might be the best bet, but she quickly realizes that she might go home, so she flips with the Coven, but it is already too late. Art goes home by a revote of 3-1.
Redemption Duel 3- Kruseman beats Art
16th- Darci- Ometepe wins yet another immunity challenge (and even less screen time because I don’t have time for that) sending Zapatera to their 5th tribal in a row, with still no tribe swap. The Coven decides that Darci is untrustworthy, and they really have no use for her anymore, so they send her home in a 3-2 vote.
Redemption Duel 4- Darci beats Kruseman
15th- Gonzo- Zapatera finally won an immunity challenge, sending Ometepe to their first ever tribal council. At the camp, Layla has amassed quite the following. She has aligned and made an alliance with Barak, Craig, and Gonzo. She has also formed a strong relationship with the 2 swing votes, Claire and Alexa, who think the 3 of them are the alliance. She rallies for Edmund, which gets back to him, and he has an idol, so he plays it. By a vote of 3-0 (6 blocked), Gonzo goes home.
Redemption Duel 5- Gonzo beats Darci
14th- Barak- Zapatera manages to win their second immunity in a row, sending Ometepe to another tribal council. Knowing that Edmund is probably coming after her, Layla decides to side with them and take down the swing votes, as she knows it most likely won’t matter come the merge. But little does the other alliance (Edmund, Jess, Wall-Man) know, Layla knows a bit more than them. She knows that Claire has an idol, which she shared this information with Layla because she is under the assumption that they are close allies. Layla tells her about the vote, and says they are voting with the other side to secure a bit of trust. Claire plays her idol, and with another 6 votes blocked, Barak is blindsided with 2 votes.
Redemption Duel 6- Barak beats Gonzo, returning to the game.
13th- Barak- The host announces the merge is happening, and he also announces that returning to the game is… Barak. Craig wins the immunity challenge. The former Ometepe tribe decides that Lita seems like the most physical threat from the other side, as she came second in the challenge. But Layla, being the mastermind of the game right now, tells Edmund, Jess, and Wall-Man that Barak is the target, as they can’t have him running around telling the Zapatera about their actions. Layla and the alliance heads to the former Zapatera members, and tells them this. So by a vote of 7-5, Barak is sent home.
12th- Craig- Justine manages to snatch this immunity win, and The Coven has a plan already. They know that Layla is the mastermind behind everything on the other side of camp, but they don’t want her out just yet. They want to get her guards down, and possibly crack the other side. So they hatch a plan, They approach their fellow former Zapatera, Gabriel, and tell him that Craig is the target, knowing that he will go tell Edmund, Jess, and Wall-man, which he does, and they tell the swing votes, Alexa and Claire, this as well. The Coven also approaches Layla and Craig, and tells them that Wall-Man needs to go, as he is an athlete. They agree, and Layla goes around telling everyone that Wall-Man needs to go, which causes a bad taste in the other former Ometepe’s mouths. But, just to cause drama, The Coven decides that they are voting Alexa, in case of an idol and to try to crack the other side. At tribal council, by a vote of 6-3-2, Craig is sent home.
11th- Alexa- Claire manages to snatch the immunity win, guaranteeing her a spot in the Final 10. Layla thinks that their best bet would be to gain The Coven’s trust, after last tribal’s masterminding, and vote with them, for the goat Alexa. But The Coven doesn’t believe that Alexa is the real target, and they know Jess is more than likely one of Layla’s goats, so they decide to vote for her. Layla also approaches Claire, Edmund, Wall-Man, and Jess about this vote, who are all hesitant at first, but then decide it for the best. The Coven manage to get Alexa and other former Zapatera Gabriel on their side. So its a 5-5 tie, and Gabriel, knowing it is more than likely already too late, decides to flip and vote Alexa out in a 5-3 revote.
Redemption Duel 7- Craig and Alexa beat Barak
10th- Jess- Claire manages to win another immunity, which keeps her safe from the crosshairs of Layla and The Coven. Layla approaches Edmund, Jess, Gabriel, and Claire and tell them all that Wall-Man is the target. Edmund decides that trust is probably best at this point, and tells Wall-Man about this, who is now angry at Jess for deciding not to, and they have a realization that Jess is goat #1 for Layla, so they approach The Coven, knowing they probably want her out and tell them this target. They think this is perfect for them, and agree. They also convince Gabriel, who is in the same mindset as Edmund right now, to vote for her. So at tribal council, by a vote of 6-3, Jess goes home, making Layla angry, as she was Layla’s number 1 priority for FTC.
Redemption Duel 8- Jess and Alexa beat Craig
9th- Wall-Man- Justine manages to win the immunity challenge, her second overall. The Coven also decides that Wall-Man is probably Layla’s next priority, and they want to break her down as much as possible, but don’t want her to get a shot at redemption. So they, along with Gabriel, decide to vote for Wall-Man. But, Gabriel tells Layla, trying to gain her trust, and she thinks that this is a perfect opportunity to mess with The Coven, as Wall-Man was not her priority, but she wants them to think that. She tells Claire that Wall-Man is the target, but Claire doesn’t believe her, and she decides to vote Layla to stir up the pot a bit. Edmund and Wall-Man are still under the impression (a la Coven) that Claire is the target. At tribal, by a vote of 5-2-1, Wall-Man is sent to Redemple Temple.
8th- Edmund- In a shocking twist, it is revealed that another immunity challenge will happen right then, and another person will be going home. The Coven think this might be the best time to get another one of Layla’s numbers out, as Layla has immunity. They decide that Edmund is the target, and tell this to Gabriel. Layla tells Claire, Gabriel, and Edmund in a last ditch effort that Lita is the target, to her dismay, Gabriel sticks with The Coven, and Edmund doesn’t believe her, voting for Claire, sending Edmund packing in a 4-2-1 vote.
Redemption Duel 9- Jess, Alexa, and Edmund beat Wall-Man
7th- Layla- The Coven decide that it is late enough to boot Layla, and that with this many people they assume are on Redemption, they doubt she will come back. So they tell Gabriel, which has already been approached by Layla, basically on her knees begging him to go to rocks, but he claims at this point, he wouldn’t do that for anyone in this game. So Layla goes home 4-2.
Redemption Duel 10- Jess, Alexa, and Edmund beat Layla
6th- Claire- This vote was simple, as Claire was the only Ometepe left, and Gabriel knew there was no use flipping. So Claire goes home 4-1.
Final Redemption Duel- Jess beats Claire, Edmund, and Alexa to return.
5th- Gabriel- The former Zapatera are shocked when the ultimate goat, Jess, is back. And on top of that, she wins immunity! The vote is all over the place, with no more alliances. But, this is not true, as Justine and Talie decide they want a fair chance at Final Tribal Council, but they think that Gabriel might cause a bitter jury more than Lita would, so they decide he needs to go. Gabriel is sent packing in a 2-1-1-1.
4th- Talie- Jess, apparently hardened from her time in Redemple Temple, wins the Final Immunity challenge. Justine and Talie decide that Lita is going. But Justine does the math and she realizes that Talie will easily beat her in the FTC, and decides that bringing Lita as a goat is more of a fighting chance, and she tells this to Lita (minus the goat part). Talie goes home right before FTC in a 2-1-1.
Final Tribal Council- Justine wins by a jury vote of 7-1-1.
Tied for 2nd- Jess and Lita
1st- Justine
Thoughts: Somehow, Zapatera, coming into the merge down 8-4, with an idol in their pocket, manages to make the Final 4 (Before Jess), with the idol being wasted at the Final 5 by Talie. That is all, thank you. (also the was The Coven managed to slowly crumble Layla’s game was cool). Also a great season, but it was run by 4 people, so not much returnee material to work with.
Possible Returnees: Justine, Lita, Jess, Talie, Gabriel, Edmund, Layla, Kruseman

27th September – Lady Vago’s Malediction by A.K.M. Beach In the blackened heart of a cursed forest, a banshee haunts her crumbling castle with lethal screams.
Lady Vago is trapped in this place. She cannot fulfill her purpose as a banshee: to warn her loved ones of their deaths and watch over them while they pass. To solve the mystery of her imprisonment, she must sift through the rubble and ruin that surrounds her. By communing with old paintings, broken furniture, and even the stones themselves, she rediscovers who she was in life.
Before she was Lady Vago, she was Rovena Stoddard, a sharp-witted horse merchant’s daughter that caught the eye of a charming baron. Lord Kalsten Vago’s life as a wandering knight was over, but it inspired visions of a better life for his most vulnerable subjects. Rovena was far less afraid of bold change than his staunch and loyal steward, who saw her presence as a threat to Lord Kalsten’s success. Love and shared dreams alone wouldn’t overcome the controversy of the couple’s hasty and unequal union, as well as the trials of governing a fledgling barony—Rovena knew that. What she failed to recognize was the deeper darkness taking root in Vago lands and hearts…
Every memory of what Rovena loved is a reminder of what she lost, but she cannot let grief halt her search. Devoted spectres of ash are begging their lady for an end to their torment, and she will not let their agony–or her own–go unanswered anymore.

1st October - Arcanist (Spellmonger #12) by Terry Mancour A Belligerent Spring
Being the most powerful wizard in the world can be a challenge. After defending his fledgling realm against the undead lord Gaja Katar all winter long, Count Minalan of the Magelaw faces a new threat in the spring: the Nemovort Shakathet, favored of Korbal, leading the mighty hordes out of the Penumbra. This time Minalan faces a real strategist, who drives his armies with purpose and efficiency. This time, the road to war leads through Megelin Castle and the vulnerable lands to the south of Vanador. This time, old enemies become allies, and old friends become valuable assets. Just another month in the life of the Spellmonger.
War, however, is not what is preoccupying Minalan; the knowledge of the end of the world is. As he broods on existential issues and debates with various goddesses and Alka Alon about Calidore’s fate, he must overcome his own fears and anxieties and impose order on the situation before everything goes into the chamberpot. The solution? Hire an Arcanist, a specialist in the obscure and trivial, to organize and investigate the many matters Minalan has to manage and bring them to order.
A busy wizard needs good organization to get it all done, after all, so Minalan hires Heeth the Butler to dive into the details while he prepares to fight the darkness. That buys the Spellmonger time to hunt down spies, taunt the Count of Nion into invading the Magelaw, lend aid to the sister realm of the Wilderlaw, who face their own war against the darkness, indulge his wife’s desire for cheesemaking, make staffing decisions, ferret out a plot to betray him by one of his vassals, and occasionally lead a special forces squadron of high-powered warmagi into battle, which is convenient. He also gets help from a wisecracking bard with a talent for espionage, an ancient intelligence who is suddenly mobile, and an insistent cow goddess, but each new ally is fraught with problems of their own. An obsessive know-it-all with a rare talent for obscure trivia is the right man in the right job. Who knew that the Spellmonger just needed an . . . ARCANIST!

2020.09.22 22:03 normancrane Real hidden wife cheating

Chapter 1 <-- You are here.
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
I’m a nervous person. I took up smoking to stop biting my nails. It didn’t work, and now I have two bad habits. Usually I don’t even have a reason for the biting, I just get anxious and chewing off bits of myself calms me down. It’s vaguely cannibalistic. My wife hates it. She used to check my hands before bed and then refuse to have sex with me if I didn’t pass the inspection. I can live without sex, but not without biting my nails or smoking. She thinks I cheated on her. She also thinks I’m a coward, but in her defence she has no idea that I saved her life. Right now she’s asleep because it’s three in the morning, and I’m out on the balcony having a cigarette and trying to figure out the best way to confess to a crime. The thing that keeps distracting me is the moon. It’s as yellow as my dentist says my teeth are going to be if I don’t stop with the cigarettes. Frankly I think drinking coffee is worse for discolourations than smoking, but whatever. My thesis sponsor says I pepper my casual writing with slang to balance the rigidity of my academic prose. She calls it my “learned” prose. I call it my thecal style.
Anyway, I’m getting off topic. I was describing the yellowness of the moon. Tom Waits has a good line about it being the colour of a coffee stain, and that’s about right. The night’s bright as far as nights go but that moon keeps staring at me like a jaundiced eyeball. I should have had a drink before coming out here. I’d go in and get one but I’m afraid I’ll wake my wife, and she’ll blink and her hair will look like a leafless winter tree surrounding a Grumpy Cat face. That’s a proper noun, Grumpy Cat. It has its own Wikipedia page, like Napoleon and Georg Hegel. The article starts: “Tardar Sauce (April 4, 2012 – May 14, 2019), nicknamed Grumpy Cat, was an American Internet celebrity cat. She was known for her permanently 'grumpy' facial appearance, which was caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism.” Keep that in mind when you read my confession because it’s a crazy fucking world we live in.
My thesis sponsor says I never make sufficiently elegant segues. She says my paragraphs are too long and that my conclusions come at the reader out of nowhere like argumental hyenas. I’m surrounded by difficult women. I’m reconsidering my confession, but that moon keeps reflecting its piss coloured light at me and I’m sick of just writing my thesis, sentence by footnoted sentence. Theses. It even sounds vile. If any of my neighbours are watching they probably think I’m ridiculous sitting out here in my boxers and bathrobe, smoking cigarette after cigarette and typing on a laptop, but in my defence it’s the twenty-first century and this is how twenty-first century murderers let it all out. I used to think it ridiculous that anyone could say the moon is made of cheese, but now I kind of get it. I’m hungry and I have a heavy heart. Two days ago I overpowered a level twenty-six dwarf, stabbed it in the neck, beat it with a shovel and sliced open its throat before transferring what remained of its body to a 3.5” diskette that Wayne and I secretly uploaded to a computer in the library.
Wayne’s my best friend and accomplice. He owns a little computer repair shop in town that I spend time in whenever my wife gets her Grumpy Cat face, and that’s where I’ll start my confession.
It was a Monday afternoon and some guy came in with an old IBM Thinkpad that he’d bought off Ebay and that he wanted Wayne to fix. “What’s the problem?” Wayne asked.
“BIOS doesn’t work,” the guy said.
Wayne booted the laptop and the BIOS was password protected. “What’s the password?”
“How should I know? That’s why I came here,” the guy said.
“What am I supposed to do?” Wayne asked.
“Hack that shit.”
Wayne traded him a newer, shittier used Dell for it and the guy signed a contract and walked out happy.
I asked Wayne what he was going to do with the Thinkpad.
“Sell it,” he said. “To someone who doesn’t know what a BIOS is, for more than I paid for that Dell.”
Wayne could do that, make money while making two people happy. I didn’t have that kind of business sense. My wife said it was because nobody took me seriously the way they took Wayne seriously. I asked her why. She said it was because Wayne had dark, curly hair whereas I had blonde hair that was so thick and straight it made me look boyish and perpetually out of date. “Would you want to be with a guy like Wayne instead of a guy like me?” I asked. “If I could be with a guy like Wayne I never would have married you,” she said.
“Hey, Wayne,” I called out. He was sorting invoices and I was sitting behind a table in the far corner of the store, working on my thesis. He turned around holding a bunch of papers. “Have you ever slept with Annie?”
“No, man.”
“But would you?”
“I might,” he said. “Are you offering?”
I said I wasn’t. He went back to sorting invoices.
My laptop screen flickered.
Wayne started humming the main theme from Super Mario Bros.
My laptop died.
“Hey, Wayne,” I said. “How much do you want for that Thinkpad?”
He read an invoice. “One hundred sixty.”
“I know what a BIOS is,” I said.
“Is yours dead?”
“Yeah.”
He took the Thinkpad off the counter, walked over to the table I was sitting behind and set the Thinkpad down. “On the house, buddy.”
I picked up my dead laptop. “At least take mine for parts.”
“It’s cool. I did sleep with Annie once. It was before you got married but it’s still probably worth a Thinkpad,” he said.
Wayne’s a pretty good guy and I didn’t care about the BIOS. I just wanted something with metal hinges that I could write on. I didn’t even need a hard drive because I ran Puppy Linux off a USB stick and saved all my files to Dropbox. My thesis sponsor didn’t think that was possible. When I plugged my USB stick into her desktop’s USB port and booted entirely into her RAM, she said, “Why did you make my Windows lose its pleasant appearance?”
I never should have booted that Thinkpad.
It had a USB port but the boot order was apparently hard drive first, so I booted into Windows XP and explored the file structure for a while because it was a form of procrastination that didn’t weigh on my conscience. There wasn’t much installed.
“You should wipe the drive before you do anything,” Wayne said.
I went down the list of directories in Windows Explorer. It looked pretty much like a fresh install. Other than the operating system, the laptop also had an old version of Office and an anti-virus suite installed. I changed the views options in Explorer to what I liked: detailed view and show hidden files checked on. “By the way, what are the specs on that thing?” Wayne asked.
“Hang on,” I said. Something had caught my eye. There was a hidden directory in root filled with text documents numbered from one to sixty-four. I opened the first. It held a single character. e. I opened the next. 8. I opened a few more at random and the contents of those were single characters, too. “Wayne,” I said.
“Yo?”
“There’s a hidden folder in C: and it has sixty-four text files with a number or letter in each.”
Wayne put down his invoices. “Exactly sixty-four?”
“Yeah,” I said. I noticed something else. “And it’s strange, because the creation dates of the files are all exactly two months apart.”
“That’s like a span of ten years.”
Nothing else on the hard drive caught my eye.
“It could be the BIOS password,” Wayne said. “Those get up to sixty-four characters long.” He scratched his chin. “But before you check that, do a search for jpegs. Sometimes people leave naked pics of their wives and girlfriends sitting around.”
“There’s plenty of those online.”
“But those are public, buddy. These would be private, known by only a few people and us.”
There weren’t any photos.
I took out my phone, opened a fresh document and typed in the characters from the numbered files on the Thinkpad hard drive. Then I rebooted and pressed the key to get into the BIOS. A password prompt came up. I entered the sixty-four characters staring at me from my phone screen and hit Enter. Bingo. Wayne was waiting for a response. “We’re in,” I said.
Except we weren’t in.
The screen had become a black command prompt. “Wait, I think the BIOS is broken,” I said.
Wayne came over to take a look.
He hit a button.

Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
“The fuck?”
Wayne hit another key.
Error. Name cannot be blank. Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
“It looks like some kind of role-playing game,” I said, stating the obvious.
“Reboot again,” Wayne said.
I did. The text disappeared, the hard drive whirred, and when the Thinkpad returned to life it booted straight to the same command prompt and the same line of text without even asking for the password.
“Does it boot off a USB?” Wayne asked.
“It didn’t before,” I said. But I tried it anyway. No luck. The screen turned off, turned on and then we were back at:
Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
We tried booting off a CD.
Welcome, adventurer. What is your name? 
“Well, that’s a useless piece of junk,” Wayne said.
So much for writing my thesis.
“Have you ever seen anything like this before?” I asked.
“Never, bud.”
“What do you think it is?”
“I don’t know. But keeping in mind I’m not a technician, just a guy who sells used computers and sometimes installs Skype and Acrobat Reader for people who type with one finger, I’d say the thing’s been set to boot off a device with some sort of game on it.”
“You mean we set it to that,” I said. “Because it booted from the hard drive before.”
“By typing in the password?”
“I guess.”
“Then either we changed the boot order without knowing it or this is the BIOS,” Wayne said. “Type something in. See what happens.”
I dangled my fingers over the keyboard, trying to think of a good name for an adventurer.
Wayne cleared his throat.
I typed in John, and quickly followed with Grousewater.
John Grousewater, an envoy from his excellency, Prince Verbamor of the Principality of Xynk, has arrived at the door of your remote stone hut. The envoy tells you that the Prince requests an immediate audience with you. Do you accept? yes 
The screen flashed white, then beeped a midi theme and displayed a white-on-black title screen baring the words “Xynk: An Interactive Quest”. Below were the names of its two developers, Tim Birch and Olaf Brandywine. I hit a key. A pixelated horse began to inch its way across a pixelated mountainous landscape.
The Principality of Xynk is on the other side of the world. Your journey was long and treacherous. 
“How old is this?” Wayne asked.
The screen flashed and a bolt of lightning appeared above the mountains.
But finally you made it. 
“No idea,” I said.
The landscape disappeared, replaced by the command prompt.
After paying for two nights of lodgings at THE YAWNING MASK, you pat your trusty horse, NIGEL, and make your way on foot to the massive structure that looms over the entirety of the city-state of Xynk, the famous CASTLE MOTHMOUTH. [OB: almost done intro description, will add soon] “I have summoned you, John Grousewater, because your exploits are known throughout the land. As you see, Xynk is in grave danger and needs your help. The enemy is already within. Only a reversal of the spell using the very same AMULET OF VERMILLION will thwart the evil plans of the HOODED RAT BROTHERHOOD and save us. Only you possess the ability to locate the amulet somewhere in Xynk and prepare the ingredients necessary to cast the reversal. John Grousewater, the reward for success will be great. Do you accept the mission?” 
I read through the text twice before realizing that Wayne was looking at me. “Well, do you accept?”
yes Xynk: An Interactive Quest is a text adventure game. It is recommended that before you begin, you read the HELP FILE. To do so now or at any time, type: READ HELP. 
I typed READ HELP.
This is placeholder text [TB: We need a help file asap] 
Wayne pulled up a chair and sat down beside me. “That wasn’t very helpful. You ever played one of these before?”
“I think I know the basics,” I said.
ROOM IN THE YAWNING MASK You are in your room in the Yawning Mask. It’s bare and empty, which suits an adventurer like you just fine. In the room, you see a TABLE and a WINDOW. The only DOOR leads WEST into the HALL. 
“So do your stuff, hot shot. Let’s see what this baby’s all about.”
examine table It’s a wooden table. It’s empty. examine window You walk to the window and look out. A cheap view for a cheap room. You see the ALLEY behind The Yawning Mask. Directly below the window, NIGEL and several other horses are eating feed from a trough. 
Bells dinged as a woman walked into the store. Wayne turned his chair to face her. It made an awful scraping sound. “May I help you?”
“My computer’s broken,” she said.
“What’s wrong with it?”
“I can’t Skype.”
“Is Skype installed?” Wayne asked.
“I don’t really know how to check that,” she said. “It worked yesterday.” Wayne patted me on the shoulder and got up to work his magic at the front counter.
I vaguely heard them talking as I refocused on Xynk.
talk to Nigel Nigel stops drinking for a moment and looks up. He’s the best horse you’ve ever had, and you hope he thinks the same about you. talk to Nigel about Xynk Nigel neighs. 
I’d played Zork once or twice online, so I had a grip on how these games worked. Usually, half the trouble was getting the game to understand what you wanted to do. Half the tedium was reading the same messages over and over again. To remind myself, I typed:
examine room ROOM IN THE YAWNING MASK You are in your room in the Yawning Mask. It’s bare and empty, which suits an adventurer like you just fine. In the room, you see a TABLE and a WINDOW. Someone has slid a NOTE under the door. The only DOOR leads WEST into the HALL. 
A note? I scrolled up to see if that had been in the first description of the room. It hadn’t.
examine note There is no such object. “Go to EAST STORE ROOM in CASTLE MOTHMOUTH” 
That was odd. I tried examining the note again and got the same result, an error message followed by a line of output. So I tried examining a few made-up objects that the game had never mentioned, like a “lantern”.
There is no such object “Go to EAST STORE ROOM in CASTLE MOTHMOUTH” 
And:
examine ipod There is no such object “Go to EAST STORE ROOM in CASTLE MOTHMOUTH” move W YAWNING MASK HALL You are standing in the hall. Your ROOM is to the EAST. A staircase leads DOWN. 
I went down, and navigated my way out of The Yawning Mask after noting on my phone that the Innkeeper seemed like he could be a font of information about Xynk. I’d talk to him later. Now, I made my way through the city toward Castle Mothmouth. I stopped hearing Wayne discuss how to add and remove software in Windows 7 and started hearing the din of Xynk amidst the clicking of the Thinkpad keys. I passed The Pierced Snout Tavern and The Local Alchemist, peeked into The Library, and noted the names of all the various neighbourhoods that the command prompt threw at me. Although some of the descriptions in the game were unfinished, most were sparsely vivid and the world itself was detailed and huge. Xynk was a living and breathing place, at least as real as a text-based San Andreas.
At some point, Wayne scraped his chair and sat beside me again. “How’s the adventure going, Grousewater?” he asked.
“I’m following what the note said and going to Castle Mothmouth.”
“Or you could work on your thesis.”
I smirked. “Thanks, Annie.”
Then I remembered that Wayne had slept with her before I ever had, and the thought made me jealous.
“Seriously, buddy. I’m all about wasting time playing video games, but the ones I play usually have graphics and guns, and don’t you have a meeting with your whatever-her-name is at the university in like two days?”
I did. I sighed.
save Command unknown. Type HELP FILE for help. save game Command unknown. Type HELP FILE for help. 
“Fuck.”
Wayne picked up my phone and read the notes I’d made. “What’s the matter? Did you get shivved by a homeless dude in”—He squinted.—”Vagrant’s Quarter?”
“I don’t know how to save,” I said.
Wayne grabbed the Thinkpad’s power cord and yanked it out of the socket. The Thinkpad shut off. “The bad thing about buying used laptops,” Wayne said, “is that usually their batteries don’t work.”
I was about to reply in a witty fashion when my phone rang—
Wayne tossed it to me.
It was Annie. I accepted the connection. “Hello, honey bun,” I said. “What’s up?”
“Where the hell are you?”
“I’m…” Wayne pointed with his chin at a clock on the wall. “Shit,” I said into the phone. I’d been at Wayne’s for over three hours. How long had I been playing Xynk? It didn’t seem anywhere near that long. My wife launched into an accusatory reminder that I was supposed to pick up a bag of potatoes on the way home and that I was supposed to be home by five, and that it was now almost six, and that the turkey was going to be too dry, and I moved the phone away from my ear and shrugged my shoulders at Wayne despite knowing that my wife was right. “Wherever you are, just get the potatoes and get home now,” she said, and ended the call. It had long ago stopped being a blow to my ego that my wife never suspected me of having an affair.
“I’ve gotta run,” I said to Wayne. I put my phone in my pocket, closed and picked up the Thinkpad, and rolled up and picked up its power cord.
Wayne crossed his arms.
“You should leave that piece of junk here,” he said.
I waved and was out the door.
I bought the potatoes at the nearest grocery store, paying nearly double what I should have because the store catered to the upper middle-class with ceramic tiles and good lighting unlike the immigrant-focused Food Basics I usually shopped at.
I called my wife to tell her the potatoes were on their way, but she didn’t answer. Maybe she was having an affair.
I also kept thinking about the note by the door in John Grousewater’s room in The Yawning Mask. What could possibly be in Castle Mothmouth’s east storage room, and who’d delivered the glitchy message? I’d have to try to talk to the Innkeeper about it. Maybe he saw someone come in.
I pulled into my driveway, put the laptop under my arm, grabbed the bag of potatoes with my hand and went in through the garage. Annie was waiting in the kitchen, playing a match-three fruit game on her tablet. “Nice of you to finally make it,” she said.
I apologized, saying I’d lost track of time working on my thesis.
“At least I don’t have to worry about you having an affair,” she said as she was getting the turkey out of the oven.
It was dry.
After dinner we drank coffee together. I watched her swipe her finger to match bananas, kiwi and watermelons. What if the note is a trap? I thought. It could be from the Hooded Rat Brotherhood. Then again, was the Hooded Rat Brotherhood actually evil? They had a name that sounded evil, but Prince Verbamor seemed shady too. I understood his need to bring in an outsider to solve the quest because the Hooded Rat Brotherhood had infiltrated Xynk’s own police force and Verbamor didn’t know who to trust, but I also remembered an old British horror movie about an outsider who comes to an island to investigate a crime and ends up burned alive in a giant wicker man as part of an elaborate pagan ceremony.
When Annie stopped talking between levels of her mobile game, I got the bright idea to search for Xynk online.
Google search brought up 273,000 matches but none about the Xynk I was looking for. Google Books didn’t yield any fruit either. Although that wasn’t entirely surprising—after all, the game was old and clearly unfinished—there was something inexplicably creepy about anything that existed in the real world without leaving a trace of its existence on the internet. I decided to try Googling the names of the two developers instead.
They did exist.
Keep reading!

In case people were wondering, I had a look through the game files and found out the rules about how many children a character can have, and the short answer is.... Unlimited, kind of, not really, but yeah, unlimited.
The amount of children any character can have is based on the couple in question. Let's start with the rules

  1. Landless & Baron characters get 1 per couple they're in.
  2. Counts get 2 per couple.
  3. Dukes get 3 per couple.
  4. Kings & Emperors get 5 per couple.
  5. The above are checked per character based on their own rank or their parents, whichever is higher.
  6. Rulers get 2 automatically. If either spouse is landed they get 2 more potential children.
  7. There is a 50% chance for every couple that the limit is reduced by 1.
  8. If couple only exists only in the "Pool" as it's referred to in the code, their limit is reduced by 1.
What's the Pool you ask? That magical place all unlanded characters go, be it the emperor's inbred imbecile sister or the lowest of lowborn geniuses, courtiers & court visitors. Regardless of which court in the world these characters reside, they're all swimming in the same Pool as far as the game is concerned. So let's look at some example couples.
You'll notice in this article I've been exclusively mentioning married couples, and that is because as far as ck3 is concerned, marriage exclusively occurs between a Man and a Woman. The developer notes from the entry state it is due to houses only being able to preserve their lineage through childbirth and as such is a hard requirement for now, whatever that means. The chances of a character being born Homosexual is 5%, Bisexual is 5%, and Asexual is 1%. Being non heterosexual in a heterosexual marriage only results in a loss of attraction opinion from your spouse, and does not appear to affect fertility at first glance in the game files. While these sexualities could result in marriages that are unable to produce offspring, only same-sex marriages would have that particular problem. A gay character is a 1/20 chance, and the chance of them marrying another gay (1/20) character of their gender (1/2, females actually have a 49% chance of being born but we'll assume 50% for now) would be 1/20 x 1/20 x 1/2, that equals 1/800 or a 0.125% chance. If we do the same for a bi (1/20) spouse of the same gender (1/2), that would also be 1/800 or 0.125%. Finally marrying an asexual (1/100) character of the same gender (1/2) would be 1/4000 or 0.025%. If we add those possibilities together then there would be a combined 0.275% chance, or roughly 1/363, of a gay (or bi for that matter) character marrying someone of the same gender. Personally I wish it was actually possible for houses to end/die out while landed but this is one of many ways that they prevent such a scenario.
/rant Frankly I find it all a bit frustrating as the game currently assumes any character is male unless they happen to be born female, and forbids marriage as a CONCEPT to anyone but heterosexual couples. I'm not personally perturbed by the modern social implications, although I can understand why having seen this, but I do find it frustrating because it means that total conversion mods for fictions that have multiple non-interbreeding races such as say, Warhammer or D&D, are currently impossible as the code-based "word of god" is that everyone is a human male by default unless they happen to be born female. /rant-over
Next, we move on to polygamy, affairs, and miscellaneous bonuses to childbirth.
  1. Player characters get a bonus of 2 to their potential children.
  2. Each spouse or concubine beyond the primary spouse adds an additional 2 potential children.
So a Player King/Emperor or equivalent with four spouses and/or concubines gets 2 from being a player, 2 from being a ruler, 5 from being king- or emperor-tier, possibly 1 less, and 6 more from their non-primary spouses/consorts/concubines, for a total of 14-15 potential children over their lifetime.
BUT WAIT?! What about LOVERS?! I hear you say. Well, these statistics rely on the qualities of the couple to determine, but are checked... on a per character basis. What does that mean? Let's look at another player example.
The Player Empress has a husband and 4 consorts, and 3 additional lovers due to those lustful/seducer events and having a religion that doesn't care about bastards.
Based on my interpretation of the game files, even if the player gets bonus children, it only matters if they remarry, multi-marry, or have lovers because the spouse isn't a player. Even if the player character marries up, a count marrying a duke, a duke a king or emperor, they cannot make use of their player bonus within their first marriage because their spouse doesn't have it.
Finally, maximum potential child births for a typical female character. The real math begins here.
  1. Females cannot have children before they turn 16 and can get married off.
  2. Females cannot have children after age 45, or possibly at age 45.
  3. Females lose 5% fertility for every child they've had previously, automatically setting a soft cap of 20 barring other modifiers.
  4. Pregnancy takes 280 days, being hidden for the first 60, and the delay between child birth and the next pregnancy is 3 (days/months? doesn't say, I'm assuming months due to 7 on this list)
  5. Females up to age 25 are 100% fertile, up to 30 are 90%, 35 is 70%, 40 is 50%, 45 is 33%, and after 45 is an unusable 10% because the max reproductive age is 45, possibly only there so that the pregnancy can resolve itself.
  6. Fertility is checked per couple by averaging their fertility and multiplying THAT by 4.75.
  7. The impregnation check is monthly, has a minimum of 1, a maximum of 25, and uses the result from #6.
There are other modifiers for Primary Spouse, Secondary Spouse, Concubines, Non-spouse, Ruler or not, etc. We are looking at the maximum potential for this and those others will be ignored. Also, we're assuming 364 days per year as I can't remember if ck3 has leap years or not. Here we go.
Assuming a female character gets married at 16, she has a (100% for her, 100% for her husband/lover, averaged to 1, multiplied by 4.75) 4.75% chance of having a child each month. MTTH (Mean Time To Happen for the uninitiated, or average time to happen if you forgot your math vocabulary) is approximately 21 months before her first pregnancy. Pregnancy takes 280 days or a little over 9 months in game. Add the 3 months waiting period between pregnancies and you have a total of approximately 33 months per childbirth per mother.
If we factor in the 5% loss per childbirth into the above formula we get the following base fertility trend for the couple. 97.5 for the second pregnancy, 95 for the third, 92.5 fourth, 90, 87.5, 85, etc. Essentially losing 2.5% fertility from the couple for every child the mother has had previously. The MTTH trend for subsequent children is as follows. 2nd is a high 33 months, almost 34, 3rd is 34, 4th just shy of 35, 5th definitively 35, etc. Essentially, each birth adds a couple weeks to the MTTH per pregnancy, capping out around 54 months for the 20th child. Remember, even if the female's fertility is 0, or even negative, the monthly check uses the average of both parents, and even then has a minimum of one so long as the mother is between 16-45 inclusive years of age.
If we factor in the age-based reduction and assume the MTTH holds true, while ignoring the limits on children per character per marriage for the moment, we get the following.
In the end an average female character will likely give birth to 11, possibly 12 children in her lifetime, assuming she regularly remarries depending on heher spouses rank or maintaining a steady stream of lovers. Male fertility doesn't stop dropping until 35 btw so if you snatch em up young you can use them for some time. Why is remarrying needed? Because each couple has limits placed on it based on the factors at the beginning of this article, lovers get their own unique couple with the character they're cheating with.

“I can’t believe it,” Onia sighed.
“I don’t like this either, but you don’t hear me complaining about it,” Adrian said, ignoring the glare the noble girl gave him.
“It’s bad enough that I get grouped up with the half breed”— Onia gestured at the Half Elf boy standing off to the side— “but I have to deal with both commoners too?” She turned to the other noble in their group— a girl with pale green eyes and brown hair with orange streaks— and spoke to her, “Ilyse, please tell me I’m having a nightmare.”
“Unfortunately not, Lady Onia. If you were, I’m afraid to tell you that I am experiencing it as well.”
Adrian was about to retort, but Alice stepped in front of him and spoke quickly, “Um, Lady Onia, Lady Ilyse, I know we’ve had our differences. But why don’t we put it all behind us for today. Mr Lucas said it’s too dangerous for us to work alone, especially for our first time facing Monsters. That’s why we’re in our groups.”
“Dangerous?” the pink haired girl snorted. “Maybe for commoners like you who have never seen a Monster in their life. I’ve seen Kobolds, and I’ve killed them too. This is hardly a new experience for me.”
Adrian could not contain his annoyance any longer. They had been together for a total of 15 minutes, and he finally had enough. “I am so sorry that we had to be in the same group as you, Lady Onia. But unlike your maids and butlers who babysit you when your daddy brings you hunting, we won’t help you if you’re being killed by a pack of Monsters.”
Onia paused. She eyed the boy with cold eyes. “Don’t think too highly of yourself just because you cheated to beat me, Adrian,” she said dangerously. “I could have you and your girlfriend killed and nobody would be any the wiser.”
Alice visibly paled, but Adrian just met her gaze. “Why don’t you just do it? Maybe then I’d be spared from seeing your reptilian-like face every single day.”
The noble girl walked up to Adrian, and the boy just folded her arms. Ilyse tried to pull her back. “Lady Onia, it’s not worth it—”
But she just continued on. “Maybe I will,” she said, finally stopping right in front of him. “It’d be a service to every student in the Academy to be rid of you two.”
“Adrian, I think that’s enough,” Alice quickly spoke out, trying to stop the boy from saying anything else. However, he just shook his head.
“No, Alice. There’s no reason to be afraid of her. She’s just a rich, spoiled brat who never had to work a day in her life. I wouldn’t be surprised if they paid the Academy just to accept someone as talentless as her.”
“You know nothing about me.” Onia’s eyes flashed, fury blazing in her pupils.
“I know enough—”
“Guys,” a voice cut Adrian off. It was neither Alice nor Ilyse who spoke, but instead it was the other boy in their group, Faizan. “Look,” the Half Elf said, “there’s one.”
Adrian looked at what he was pointing at. It was a small, almost-hidden, pale green plant underneath a rock. It was a Pixie Bud.
The purpose of the field trip was simple: the class had been split up into nearly dozen groups to go explore the Defenor Forest. They were to observe the local wildlife and write a report on them, hunt down any Monsters in the area to help cull their population from growing too large, as well as gather any herbs or plants that could be used for Alchemy. A Pixie Bud was probably one of the most important of such ingredients.
Alice walked over to the Half Elf and peered over at the plant. “Why’s there only one?” she asked. “Aren’t they supposed to come in clusters?”
“They are,” Faizan said, carefully divoting the dirt below the Pixie Bud. He placed it into his basket and turned to the blonde girl. “They don’t grow too close to each other because of how each one affects the flora around it. That’s why each Pixie Bud is so rich in mana. But there should be more in the area, we just have to search for it.”
Onia huffed, flipping her hair— currently tied into a braid— back. “You go ahead and do that, half breed. Ensure every Pixie Bud around here is gathered. Ilyse and I will return in an hour to check on your progress.”
“Where are you going?” Adrian narrowed his eyes. He would have preferred it if the noble girl were gone since he did not have to interact with her, but he was not going to let her slack off while they did all the work. “Don’t think we’ll do your work for you, Onia.”
She frowned at the use of her name without any title, but did not comment on it. “Why, commoner, I’m being efficient. We’ll divide up the work— you three can stay here and do this boring task, while I will find us some Kobolds to kill. It’s not like you’ll be of any help regardless, so try and make yourself useful here.”
Adrian held himself back from snapping at her. “Fine,” he said. “Go ahead and get yourself injured by Monsters. But when Mr Lucas asks us why we weren’t there to help you, don’t go laying the blame on us.”
Onia scoffed. “I wouldn’t even think of it. If something were too much for me to handle, I sincerely doubt your presence would make any difference.” With that said, she turned around and walked away. “Come on, Ilyse.”
“Yes, Lady Onia.” The other noble girl hurried after her. Adrian watched them go, opting not to say anything.
“Are you sure we should just let them leave?” Alice asked, a worried look on her face.
Adrian hesitated. He stared at the two figures as they disappeared behind a thicket. Then he turned back to Alice. “Yes,” he said. “The worst thing that could happen is we get into trouble for breaking off into smaller groups.”
The girl looked unconvinced, but she didn’t argue. “If you say so…”


“I think that’s all of it,” the Half Elf boy said, slumping over.
“Thanks, Faizan.” Adrian placed a hand on his shoulder. “We couldn’t have finished up so quickly without you.”
Faizan looked unbothered by Adrian’s casual use of his name. Adrian knew his family was from a lower noble rank— a Baron, if Adrian remembered correctly. But he would have thought that the other boy would have been at least slightly concerned with formality.
Adrian didn’t mind it; it was better for him that way. He did not enjoy using titles, but he would have done so if Faizan requested it— he liked the Half Elf enough that he would do that for him.
“How did you know where to find all the Pixie Buds were?” Alice asked, looking amazed. “I’d have thought it would take an hour or more to find as many as we did.”
“My… mother taught me,” Faizan said, hesitantly. “She’s an Elf, and she was born in Ghab-Ha. So she’s good with nature. But I’m not— compared to real Elves my age, I’m nothing.”
Adrian frowned. Faizan had to have been around 20 years old from what he could gather, although the other boy was only slightly taller and more mature looking than him. That was young for an Elf, but slightly older for a Half Elf. Regardless, Faizan should still have been considered a child who was only starting to hit puberty. As far as Adrian knew, Faizan seemed rather talented and knowledgeable.
“It’s a compliment,” Adrian said, “don’t put yourself down.” He gave the other boy as reassuring of a smile he could give, and gestured toward the baskets full of Pixie Buds and a handful of other ingredients that could be used for Alchemy or Herbalism. “Let’s just go bring this back. Then we can find something to observe and write about while we still have time.”
“R-right,” Faizan said, nodding.
The three children began heading back to the large clearing near Defenor Forest’s exit. The forest had been developed because of the resources it provided to Xanderia, as well as its usefulness serving as a recreational and training area, which meant there were roads and small paths guided alongside signs throughout the place. Adrian, Alice, and Faizan simply followed one such pathway back to where they came from.
“Hey,” Alice said urgently, tugging at Adrian’s shirt, “what’s that?”
Adrian blinked. The girl was pointing at something off road at a distance— stalking behind some bushes and trees. It was…
“A Kobold? No— they’re supposed to be bipedal, although they usually walk around on all fours. But that’s not a Kobold.” Adrian felt for the weapon hanging around his waist. It was not a training sword with a dulled edge— they were here to kill Monsters. They had been trained to use proper weapons, and this was a test to see how well they could actually wield them.
“It’s a wolf,” Faizan said, not even squinting. Adrian could barely even make out the animal, but the Half Elf’s superior vision let him see objects almost twice as far as a regular Human. “A Dyre Wolf, to be specific. They’re mostly docile Monsters, unless they’re hungry. In which case, we should avoid them at any cost. They’re as dangerous as a pack of Kobolds. Although by the looks of it, that one seems to have already found its prey.”
Adrian leaned over to look at where the other boy was pointing. True enough, the Dyre Wolf seemed to be tracking something. It was following a pair of Kobolds, minding their own business.
“Should we tell Mr Lucas about this?” Alice asked. “Since they’re dangerous and all.”
“No,” Adrian said, shaking his head. “A single Dyre Wolf is much of a problem by itself. Although I didn’t think they were native to this area. I always thought Crymson Wolves were more the type of Monster canines that were near Xanderia.” He paused, thinking about it for a moment. “But it doesn’t matter, we can just leave it be.”
Alice nodded. “That sounds good to me,” she concurred. “If this wolf is trespassing in the territory of other wolves, they’ll take care of it. Let nature deal with nature.”
Faizan didn’t disagree either. “I guess that makes sense,” he said. So with the group in agreement, they continued back to where Lucas and Nero were waiting.
Their supervisors were waiting under an open tent. They were both in full plate armor, but the Holy Knight had mana crystals adorned on various parts of his armor, unlike the teacher who only had three small mana crystals on his armor that Adrian could see.
“Back so soon?” Nero asked, as the three students approached them. “Where’s the rest of your group?”
“We decided to split up. Divvy up the work so we can get done faster,” Adrian explained. “Onia and Ilyse wanted to deal with the Kobolds, so we’re doing the rest of the work.”
Lucas grunted in response. “So you’ve collected Pixie Buds, I see.”
“Yes,” Alice said, showing the ingredients in her basket. “And we also found some Sun Spores, Vetus Grass, and—”
The teacher waved a hand and cut her off. “That’s good enough for me,” he said. “Have you chosen your research subject yet?”
“N-no,” Faizan answered truthfully, and glanced at his two companions. “But I was thinking— if my group doesn’t mind— I wanted to inspect the Elysian Trees. Defenor Forest is the only place outside of Ghab-Ha where they’re fully preserved, and I’m… interested in them.”
“I’m fine with it,” Adrian said nonchalantly.
Alice nodded in agreement. “If that’s what you want, we’ll do it.”
“There you go,” Lucas said, shooing them away. “Just make sure you make actual observations about them— like the special properties of their wood or how their leaves seem to produce mana into the air. Don’t just write about what you’re interested in, and cover as much as you can in your paper.”
“Yes, Mr Lucas,” the three students chorused.
They left their baskets with the teacher, before heading off. They were graded by the ingredients they brought back, and Adrian was certain they gathered enough to get the highest grade— a Distinction. Once the field trip was over, all the ingredients would be equally divided amongst all students for their Alchemy class next week.
“So,” Adrian said, breaking the silence, “where are these Elysian Trees at?”
“You mean you don’t know what they look like?” Alice turned to Adrian in surprise. “Have you never seen one, ever?”
“Uh, nope.” Adrian scratched the back of his head. “Is that something I should know?”
Alice just stared at him for a moment, then she blinked as a moment of realization sunk in. “I forget you’re from Vitae sometimes,” she said, resting her palm on her forehead. “Elysian Trees don’t exist on that side of the world, right?”
“No.” Adrian first heard about them when Walden mentioned them in one of his lessons back in Villamcreek. However, he knew nothing about them beyond bare bits of information— they would only come up in a third year elective, so he had no reason to study them. “What’s so special about these trees?” Adrian asked.
“Well, first things first is that Elysian Trees produce mana,” Alice said, wagging a finger. “Sure, it’s minuscule in amount, but we have evidence that they do create mana.
“Furthermore, they are considered sacred by the Elves. The Great Hero Xander planted the first seed of the Elysian Tree after the Demon Lord was defeated. He said it was bestowed upon him by the Goddess as a gift for his second wife, the Elf Princess Qabul, when she announced that she was pregnant with his child.
“Each tree takes around two decades to fully mature, and they don’t produce many seeds, making them incredibly rare. And since they aren’t officially recognized as something ‘holy’ by the Church, many rich nobles cut them down to use their incredibly strong bark as a building or crafting material.”
“It’s terrible,” Faizan finally spoke out, picking up where Alice left off. “The only reason why all the trees haven’t been chopped down yet is because we— I mean, the Elves— are preserving and growing them.” He paused, eyeing something in the distance, then added, “Plus, they’re massive.” The Half Elf boy pointed up, towards the sky.
Adrian turned his gaze heavenward, and he felt his breath caught in his throat. “That’s an Elysian Tree?!” he exclaimed.
The boy was staring up above the canopy of trees, at a protrusion that jutted out of the treetop like a hill in the distance. Except, it was not a hill— it was a gigantic tree.
The Elysian Tree rose up, far above the rest of the Defenor Forest, reaching out for the clouds up above. There were a few dozen of them, and each had to be at least 500 feet tall. Their trunks were 50 feet in diameter at their thickest; it was not the widest tree proportional to their size, but Adrian could not help uttering an oath, “Sacred piss, you weren’t kidding. Those are massive.”
“They are,” Faizan said, a hint of pride showing on his face. “And Ghab-Ha has hundreds of them.”
“What’s so special about their wood?” Adrian asked. “Why would anyone want to cut them down?” The boy was pretty sure felling a single one of those trees was a hazard to whoever was given that job.
“It’s because of their wood,” Alice piped up. “It’s called wisened wood because of what happens to them once the tree dies. It becomes harder than what it already is, and you don’t even have to dry the wood— they simply don’t decompose. Or if they do, we haven’t seen it happen yet.”
“They’re also fireproof,” Faizan added. “Which makes disposing of fallen Elysian Trees incredibly difficult. And that’s not including all the work required cleaning the other trees crushed by the fall.”
Adrian was still staring at the enormous trees in the distance. He could not see them as clearly above the treetops now that they were closer, but the image of the Elysian Trees was burned into his mind. Then a thought crossed his mind.
“If we know all that, what are we even doing observing it?”
“Well, there’s a difference between what we read in books and actually seeing it for ourselves. We want to compare the information in our notes with the preconception we have, as well as observe how the Elysian Trees interact with the wildlife in the area,” Alice explained, her blue eyes sparkling with even more life than usual.
“You really like researching these types of things, huh?” Adrian remarked, and the girl blushed. “You seem even more excited for this than Faizan.”
“Hehe…”
Faizan glanced between the two of them. “H-hey,” he started, “are you two—” He never got to finish.
A rustling of the bushes interrupted the Half Elf boy. The three students tensed.
“Monster—”
And a figure burst out from behind the leaves. Ilyse ran out at them, visibly exhausted, heaving with labored breath. She was injured, but no terribly so, however that was enough to instill panic into the three children.
“Lady Ilyse, what happened?” Alice rushed to the girl, and practically caught her from falling over. “Where’s Lady Onia?!”
“You— where were you?” she snapped. “You weren’t where we left you! This wouldn’t have happened if you didn’t leave!”
“Calm down, Ilyse,” Adrian said, his words not matching his panicked voice. “What happened? Explain.”
“Lady Onia— she’s in trouble. We need to get Mr Lucas! Get Sir Nero to save her!” The noble girl tried to push past the group, but she could barely even stand by herself. She almost collapsed, letting out a whimper. Finally, she gave up, and looked all three of her group mates in the eyes. “A Werewolf attacked us. She bought time to save me. Please, she might still be alive.”
Adrian’s eyes widened. A Werewolf? But how—
It was not the time for questions. Adrian had been raised by a man who was experienced with avoiding Monsters when out hunting in the wilderness. The boy learned to react fast when such things happened.
“Faizan,” he said, bringing the Half Elf boy out of his stupor. “Go get the adults. Now.”
Adrian did not have to say it twice. Faizan immediately took off in a run, not even wasting a single second to ask questions. Adrian then turned to Alice.
“You stay here with Ilyse. She can’t walk. Protect her in case any stray Kobold or wild animal decides to attack her.”
“What are you going to do?” the girl asked, staring at him with fear in her eyes.
“I’ll find Onia. Try and buy her some time until the adults arrive,” he said, voice final. He faced Ilyse. “You guys wait here for when Faizan returns with Mr Lucas and Sir Nero. Direct them to where Onia is.” He hesitated, and looked over to his right. “You said you were attacked back where we were collecting those Pixie Buds, right?”
“Y-yes,” Ilyse answered, pointing at the direction he was facing. “But you can’t go, you’ll die—”
Adrian ignored her. He took off, running through the trees, straight for Onia— his bully. A bratty noble girl he hated.
Why was he doing this? Should he not have hoped she somehow died from this? It would be a boon to his time in Xander’s Academy if she were gone for good.
Except, there was a reason why he ran to help Onia. It was a simple reason— which did not require any explanation. It was this: Adrian was not a psychopath.
That was all.
So Adrian ran straight into danger. His mind was racing as his legs carried him as fast as it could through the uneven terrain, and around the obstacles in his path.
The Dyre Wolf, he thought. It’s the Dyre Wolf!
It had never been a Dyre Wolf. It was a Werewolf the entire time. That was what Werewolves did— Adrian read it in a bestiary; Werewolves disguised themselves as a prey to a predator— such as Dyre Wolves to Crymson Wolves— to draw out said predators. Then, they would catch their prey unaware, by transforming into their real forms: a large, seven foot tall wolf-like creature with claws longer than knives and fangs as numerous as a shark’s teeth.
There was no way Onia could slay such a beast. She was going to die, and Adrian could not let that happen. He had failed at saving someone once. From a Chimera. And she had been forced to save him instead.
Adrian knew he could not kill a Werewolf. That was why he had sent Faizan to get Nero or Lucas. They could save Onia. And Faizan, being part Elf, could run the fastest out of all four of the children that were there at the moment. But they could be too late, which was why Adrian was doing this.
He found himself back where he last saw Onia. It looked like there had been a battle here. Broken branches and destroyed bushes and—-
Blood.
Adrian’s heart stopped. But there was no body. Onia could still be alive. He saw the blood leaving what seemed to be a trail, and he quickly followed it.
The boy followed it until he saw a shape in the distance. He heard the clash of claws against steel, and watched as Onia flew backwards into a tree. Her shield was knocked aside from the hit, and her sword was nowhere to be seen. The Werewolf loomed over the noble girl as her face visibly paled, even from a distance. It raised its claw—
And a bolt of energy struck its side.
“Over here, you stupid Monster!”
The Werewolf spun around, assessing the new threat.
Adrian was not holding a stun gun. This was not a duel, his weapon was real and carried with it a force stronger than even a crossbow. Xander’s Academy was a rich institution; Adrian knew this pistol he had was better than his dad’s pistol. Yet, the Werewolf looked even less hurt than the Chimera was from his shots.
Adrian drew his sword, firing more bolts of energy at the Monster. The Werewolf struck its hand through the air, blocking the attacks with its claws. Adrian tried racing around it— circling it— as he continued shooting as many bullets as he could.
The Werewolf was hit by a few more bullets before it decided Adrian was another easy target. It charged the boy, running on two legs as it swung its arms at him. Adrian just barely ducked under the first swing. He quickly countered with his own stab at the Monster’s legs, but he barely cut through its flesh. He practically only gave the beast a haircut!
Adrian had to bring his sword up to block the second attack. The force of the blow sent Adrian stumbling backwards. It followed up with another strike, and Adrian parried again. This time, the boy went flying and crashed into some bushes.
He tried to pick himself up. He was bleeding and bruised in a few places. The Werewolf was charging at him, now on all four legs. He fired another shot as it came closer, and rolled out of the way of the frenzied attack.
Adrian steadied himself for just a moment as the Werewolf turned back around. It was too close. He was going to die unless someone came in now to save him. Or unless he felled the beast by himself.
But he could not do that. He could not even hurt the Monster—
The boy paused, as he remembered Melas. He remembered an explosion, and blood flying through the air. It was a dangerous tactic, one that nearly got the girl killed. But it worked.
Adrian felt himself touching the mana crystal in his gun. He did not exert any force over the mana just yet, however he was considering it. The Werewolf ran at him again, and he hesitated.
No, I have to do this!
Adrian brough the pistol up. The mana crystal flashing. It glowed, as the boy pushed at the mana with all of his strength.
But nothing happened.
What? Why—
The Werewolf reached the boy. It brought its claws down at him, and he closed his eyes. This was how he died. He wondered what would happen to Alice— he hoped she wouldn’t blame herself for his death. And he never even got to see Melas again.
There was a yelp. Adrian opened his eyes and saw Nero standing in front of him. The Werewolf was backed up, a large gash opened up on its chest.
“Well then, it seems like I came just in time,” the Holy Knight said, grinning.
The Werewolf howled, clasping at its chest. It charged the man that just injured it, and he easily sidestepped the attack. Nero swung at its legs, his sword easily cutting through its thick skin.
“Come, now. Is that all you got?” Nero taunted the creature.
It leapt back, now staring warily at the Holy Knight Captain. Adrian stared in awe as the man easily countered another attack. And another. Then, the Werewolf finally had enough. The Monster reverted back to a wolf— a smaller wolf than a Dyre Wolf— and tried to flee. But Nero just laughed.
“You’re not going to escape!”
With that said, the black haired man swung his sword at the escaping Monster from a distance. A red blade of energy flashed through the air, and sliced the Werewolf in half. It fell, dead.
“Amazing,” Adrian breathed the word.
The Holy Knight slowly sheathed his blade, and lifted his visor up. He turned to Adrian, then to Onia. Adrian saw as Lucas approached with Faizan, Alice, and Ilyse in the distance. They rushed to the injured girl, and the teacher quickly began applying a healing potion on her wounds.
“You children are more trouble than I thought you for,” Nero said, grabbing the boy’s attention. “Trying to face a Werewolf by yourself is a fool’s move already. And yet, you took it a step further and tried to destabilize your weapon’s mana crystal to explode it. You’re fortunate that all of the Academy’s weapons are made with precautions to prevent an accident like that from happening. It’s a dangerously foolish act, one that defeats the purpose of this field trip, enough to give you a failing grade.”
Adrian opened his mouth to protest.
“But,” Nero cut him off, raising a finger. “You did so to protect your friends. And for that, I’d say it’s worth a Distinction, no?”
The boy paused, staring at the Holy Knight for a moment. Then he spoke out, “Onia’s not my friend.”
“But you still tried to save her regardless.”
“I—”
“Well, it doesn’t matter what you think. I am simply stating what I see.” Nero flashed his charming smile, then walked away from Adrian to the others. The boy frowned, but didn’t say anything.


After Adrian was healed up as well and the group returned back to the main clearing of Defenor Forest, they had to cut the field trip short, out of fear that there were more Werewolves in the area.
Alice was clinging on to Adrian, not letting go of his arm. “You had me worried sick, you know? I thought you were going to get yourself killed!”
“I’m fine now,” Adrian said. “So please, let go of me—”
The boy paused, as Onia came up to them. Alice immediately straightened, and turned to the noble girl. “L-lady Onia,” she said, not meeting the other girl’s eyes. “Are you alright? We’re so sorry about what happened—”
“Why did you save me?” she asked, ignoring the blonde girl.
Adrian eyed the noble girl. He turned to Alice, standing uncertainly to the side, then back to Onia. He took a deep breath, and spoke, “Don’t ignore Alice.”
“What?”
“You heard what I said,” Adrian replied, not masking his irritation with her. “You know, Onia, I don’t like you. Despite what Sir Nero said, I don't think you’re my friend. You ask me why I saved you? It’s because I’m not a callous individual like you, who would leave a stranger to die if it did not benefit you in any way. Most regular, decent people would save the life of someone in danger if the situation arises.”
Onia froze, slowly processing his words. She looked like she wanted to snap at him, but she bit back her tongue. “I… I’m sorry, Alice,” she finally said. “And to you, Adrian, for offending you.”
Adrian blinked, surprised at her level response. “Oh, uh, as long as you understand—”
“However, you are wrong about me,” she cut him off. “I am not a callous individual. I am a Duke’s daughter. There is a certain standard I have to uphold, and unfortunately, you comm— two, refuse to let me maintain it.”
“What?” Alice asked, aghast. “I have been nothing but courteous to you, Lady Onia.”
“Yet you hang around this insolent fool who insists on addressing me so casually, ignoring all status between us. I gave you a chance to rectify that error, but you valued your acquaintance with him more than mine.” Onia shook her head. “Don’t mistake my gratitude for something else, Adrian. At the end of the day, you are still a commoner, and I will become a Duchess once my father passes his title to me. I know you are from the Rem Republic where the aristocracy is weak and holds less than a third of the power of government, but we’re not in the Rem Republic. This is the Holy Xan Empire, and if you want to survive here, you need to play by our rules, and not make up your own.”
Adrian wanted to snap back. He wanted to argue. But he realized she was telling the truth. From her perspective, Adrian had been nothing but rude from the first day, refusing to use titles for any of the nobles in Xander’s Academy. The boy thought he would give respect to those who deserved it, but that was not enough. Not when he was casually disrespecting them from the very first day. He took a deep breath, and thinking of Alice, he spoke out.
“Onia— no, Lady Onia. If I were to use your preferred title from now on, you’ll have to stop treating Alice and I as outsiders,” Adrian said, gesturing at the blonde girl next to him. “Perhaps you may think I did not earn my place in the Academy because Saint Theron pulled some strings to get me in, but Alice certainly has. And have I not proven from my time here that I am very much qualified to be a student here? Or are you disputing the veracity of my grades?”
“I am doing no such thing, and I would rather you not make presumptions on my behalf in the future,” the noble girl sighed, but pressed that issue no longer. Instead, she brought out a hand. “I have considered your offer, and I accept your terms. I sincerely doubt you would be willing to bow your head to me despite your reluctant use of my title, so we shall shake on it, only to simplify this issue.” She waited, her hand opened for him to take.
Adrian hesitated, eyeing the outstretched palm for a moment. “What about Faizan? Are you going to stop calling him a half breed and acknowledge him? He is a Baron’s son, after all.”
“I…” Onia trailed off as Adrian raised an eyebrow. Then, after some internal conflict where her good sense won, she responded, “Very well. But only because he helped in saving me by calling Sir Nero.”
The boy nodded, deciding that was the best he could get out of this. “So I guess we have a deal then?”
“Indeed.”
Adrian and Onia shook hands as Alice watched, mouth agape. With that, the pink haired girl turned around and took her leave.
“Adrian!” Alice said excitedly. “You just made us friends with Lady Onia! Do you understand what that means?”
Adrian frowned. “I don’t really think we’re friends, and I don’t know— what does it mean?”
“It means you have access to one of the highest social circles in all of the Holy Xan Empire! These types of relationships go a long way, Adrian!” the girl chattered, waving her arms about. “Networking, getting to know the upper nobles. These are all things I thought would take me years to do once I got accepted to Xander’s Academy— in fact, I thought I’d spend the first three years talking only to the lesser nobles. But now that Lady Onia is properly acknowledging us, that’s not going to be necessary anymore!”
The boy looked at the girl skeptically. “I really don’t think it’s as big of a deal as you’re making it, Alice.”
She sighed. “I’ll have to teach you a lot more things about how the nobility and the Holy Xan Empire works, don’t I? You’re still oblivious to so many things even after being here for half a year!” Then she laughed, smiling brightly at Adrian. “But don’t worry, once I’m done with you, I’ll make sure Xanderia feels like a second home!”
Adrian paused, catching a glimpse of Nero in the background. He saw the man’s sable black hair hanging freely without a helmet in place, and thought of someone else.
Sorry Alice, he thought to himself. But that’s never going to happen.
Because even if Onia was actually a good person, even if Faizan was an interesting new friend, and even if Adrian liked Alice’s company, it still did not change the fact that he believed the Holy Xan Empire was evil.
[Next Chapter]

Author's Note:
Here it is. 5700 words. I thought that these two chapters would be short. This is the last you'll see of Adrian in Book 2 as his Arc, as of now, is finished.
I know you guys here in Redditserials like Adrian, so I decided to upload the chapter here 6+ hours before I upload the chapter on RoyalRoad. However, speaking of RoyalRoad, I would like to ask for some help.
My rewrite of Melas-- which I mentioned won't affect you guys since I'm just retroactively editing the chapters here-- has finally hit Trending on RR, unfortunately it got review bombed initially for being 'torture porn' and 'worse than grimdark'. I was hoping some of you guys here with RR accounts could just click on this link, then click on the Fiction Page, and maybe give me a quick rating (however much you think I deserve) and scroll down to the reviews to upvote whichever you most agree with.
I know my story isn't torture porn; I'm sure you guys know my story isn't torture porn. And yet, it still hurts a lot reading someone call Melas a 'torture porn' story with a 'chewtoy MC'.
I would really appreciate it, thank you <3

2020.09.03 13:40 TessaBissolli Real hidden wife cheating

I started the series three months ago examining how the apparent narrative of the show's mythology crumbles under examination:

RR was a married Naval Officer, who was seduced by KR, and the affair of over 4 years produced a child. She had been siphoning information off him, including a submarine that was sunk. But when she decided to end it, RR took Masha because she would not let him see her, and went to hide in the closed Rehoboth Beach house he rented every year. Katarina followed, they fought, her goons arrived, Masha shot her father and he died, and Katarina hid his body. She left Masha with Kate, tried to kill herself in Cape May, survived, stumbled into a Church, went to a shelter, killed a Russian guy, and took his wallet, then contacted Ilya, who helped her get her mother to safety, then go to Moscow to talk to her father. But on the way back, posing as Americans, Katarina tries to jump from a balcony, Ilya stops her, and they come up with the idea that someone would become RR to take money left by the KGB in banks to incriminate him and be able to run away. Katarina was really working for Alan Fitch and the cabal. Red, whoever he is, went in for surgery with Koehler and it worked, albeit not as they thought it would. Katarina disappeared, and Red started to rise as a criminal. In 2013, he surrendered, and worked with Liz, until he was exposed by Kate as a supplanter. Now her mother, turned enemy of both Red and her father, Dom, is working with Liz to find the Sikorsky Archive.
Throughout this entire series, u/jen5225 my partner in crime has been invaluable, she even authored one of the posts.
We started this journey questioning one of the main characters of the show: Elizabeth Keen and who she really is.
https://preview.redd.it/4omebkxf5xk51.png?width=720&format=png&auto=webp&s=fa86b9cae9c53a116aec6e64e17521b4fff3498e
Was she really Masha Rostova, as opposed to be KNOWN and had lived as such? Is Katarina, Dom's daughter REALLY her biological mother? And what can her abduction from the Summer Palace, in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia tell us about who she is.
The answer is that while we know that Elizabeth's biological father is the man known to the US Navy as Raymond Reddington, the other thing we might know is that she was NOT born as Masha Rostova. In fact we can deduce that nobody was born alive, in Moscow, or anywhere else, as Masha (or Maria) Rostova , or that there was any record of a child born to anyone using the name Katarina Rostova, because otherwise the Russians (or the Americans) would know she existed (even under another name) because she was born in Moscow . But that is not the case:
ANTON VELOV: I said, "All I know is they say she had a daughter.”
Peter Kotsiopoluos had to send Connolly's people to find out about a child from one of the few KGBs who had been involved with Katarina. A man who had been in charge of chasing her for the KGB, but who never met her personally. And this man did not KNOW she had a daughter. Yes, he found a photo, but no evidence Katarina had a daughter.
So Liz was born in Moscow, under a different name, from a woman who Red KNEW AS "Katarina Rostova", but who must have used a different name in Moscow to give birth to Liz, perhaps her real name. Remember that Red knows who Dom is, so Red knows Katarina's real last name. This woman he KNEW AS "Katarina Rostova", is not Katarina.
I have made the case that Red, while referring to Liz as Masha to the people who know Liz as Masha (Dom, Ilya), has never told Liz she IS Masha, or in fact told anyone that Liz IS Masha:
Red says about Liz and the name Masha:
So, while we KNOW RR is Liz's bio- father, we also can DEDUCE, from what we have been told, who is very likely NOT her bio-mother: Katarina. Yet we saw Red tell Liz about her mother:
What was her name?
Mmmh I knew her as Katarina Rostova. One of her many names. She was a KGB agent.
So, we know her biological mother is NOT Katarina, but is a woman who gave birth to her in Moscow, who USED the name Katarina Rostova to have an affair with RR (Or steal sperm?), who WAS a KGB agent, and whose real name is not known to Red.
Yet Liz was living with her REAL non-bio mother, Katarina, the woman who took her in, passed her as her own under the name Masha Rostova, and even produced a DNA test that convinced her cover husband, Constantin Rostov, that Masha was his biological child, when in reality no child had been born as such anywhere of Katarina or of any other woman under those names (Katarina Rostova or Masha Rostova).

Which tell us likely why Rostov, a man of wealth and power did not pursue the matter of his abducted child and disappeared wife: likely, because he could not even prove, past photos of Masha, that there was a child of his named Masha (or Maria) Rostova. We do not even know if those cops we saw at the Summer Palace were real, as someone astutely noted.
https://preview.redd.it/vlh2p61x7xk51.png?width=953&format=png&auto=webp&s=d2612c6e1d122b18ec58adb42c68ed368faf0487
It is also likely that Constantin soon found himself the object of unwanted KGB interest in the matter of his missing wife, and likely had to go into hiding. We know he emerged as Alexander Kirk after the fall of the USSR in December of 1991 and bought cheap energy outfits.
https://preview.redd.it/gi9snkr08xk51.png?width=1208&format=png&auto=webp&s=05fca03484ad125f9446c641157f52659668b1e9
What can we tell then about Raymond Reddington (RR) then? For starters that there was no man born as such, either. Why? Because we know Liz had been investigating her past. She suspected Reddington to be her father, even getting a DNA test done, to throw it out, afraid of the results. Liz had taken positive steps to find information about her past.
Liz went asking the OREA agents about her mother, she asked Velov twice, she collected information about the night of the fire. She has notebooks, researched Oleander, had the photo in the swing enhanced and search in facial recognition databases for her mother, researched "Ilya Koslov", and even found a motel stay in Dover. It makes sense that Liz, a federal agent, has access to all kinds of official information including the drowning in Cape May, which was in newspapers, and likely had official reports.
https://preview.redd.it/zs1vlp5ubxk51.png?width=1916&format=png&auto=webp&s=62d44c1a33c43b7322e098e7a77f64e4579c0a96
One Liz learned her father was RR, and then saw a report telling her RR was dead, she would have tried finding her paternal blood relatives. Grandparents, unless and aunts, cousins. Anyone with a blood relation to her, because finding her biological relatives is immensely important to her.
She found nothing. Nobody, alive or dead under the name. We never heard of ANY relative either. No parents interrogated. No siblings mortified in shame. Nobody changing their name. And we know this out of a single question Liz made of Ressler:
LIZ: You didn't stop, did you, trying to find his (RED'S) real identity ?
RESSLER: No, I didn't. I don't know who he (RED) was, but I think I found someone who might. Your grandfather. (That would be RR's father or Katarina Rostova's father, Liz's biological grandfathers)
LIZ: You found Reddington's father? (RR'S FATHER, NOT RED'S FATHER)
And this tells us that Liz had never found a blood relative under that name. As an FBI agent she has access to birth, death, marriage, tax, census and financial records. Fingerprints and facial recognition databases, etc. and she had never found her paternal grandfather under the name Reddington, or under any name. She was surprised Ressler found her paternal grandfather:
This means nobody was born under that name, which means that Reddington was an assumed name of the man who graduated from the Naval Academy and became her biological father.
Matters get even more complicated when we look at Katarina, the woman who likely did not give birth to Liz in Moscow, but became her mother, the only real mother Liz had.
https://preview.redd.it/ybdx2bq0hxk51.png?width=932&format=png&auto=webp&s=f634459c2f068f1d0fa451cb12203fda6722db3a
The Russians seem to know Katarina as "Katarina Rostova", know Dom as Oleander and know he is her father. There is no subterfuge on their part. They sent Anton Velov after her:
Velov was the agent assigned to find her.
and then the Osterman Umbrella Company:
Your mother loved that photograph. Represented everything she wanted but couldn't have. Not after she betrayed the KGB. After that, she was a hunted woman.... Hunted by the Osterman Umbrella Company.
But when it comes to the Americans, they acted as if "Katarina Rostova" did not exist, just like they do with Brian Osterman, or Leonard Caul, and anyone with a burn notice, or whose existence needs to be kept a secret.
https://preview.redd.it/4t82bxc7hxk51.png?width=1121&format=png&auto=webp&s=f738f60ddfd66db4d49a2427ed1e6e65aacfc2ce
Yet Peter Kotsiopolus, who in 2015 was the head of the Clandestine Services (covert agents) knew Liz's mother (either one) well enough to see a resemblance with Liz. If this was in appearance or in attitude we do not know. We do not know what job did Peter had before 1991, but likely he would have been a handler of covert agents, not the head of Clandestine Services.
https://preview.redd.it/qmel5cz3hxk51.png?width=834&format=png&auto=webp&s=0009667cc8affee1093153e633b28346768b00a7
In short, the CIA acted exactly as they do about an agent who had a burn order: deny their existence.
The Agency (or the FBI) make no effort whatsoever in finding her, or tracking her mother or father. They even tell Ressler than because Rostova did not make a reservation in her name, then she did not board the ferry. 😂 Liz tried finding her face in facial recognition databases to no effect in season 2. So likely, Katarina has a new face, or she is dead.
But what the CIA agent tell Liz is in fact more truth than not:
CIA'S OREA SECTION AGENT MASIK: I don't think there are any photographs of Katarina Rostova.... She's a myth. Tall tales late at night over vodka shots. Probably an amalgamation of a half-a-dozen unknown female Soviet operatives-- the Pinko Mata Hari.
because Red says a very similar thing about "Katarina Rostova", that "Katarina Rostova" was a myth, a figment, an illusion:
RED: You said you prefer illusion to reality.... I may have seemed like an illusion, but she is one... she's someone you can never find.... I may not have told you what you want, but I told you all you need. You'll never find Rostova..... She's a figment of the collective imagination.
And if we look carefully we see how Red refers to Liz's mother in a normal way "your mother", and in a bizarre way, "Katarina Rostova", not "Katarina", as he does to Dembe, Kate, Dom, or Ilya. So, there are times when Red is using a subterfuge, in her entire name, which then might be about the identity, or might refer to two women: one of them, Katarina, whom he knew well and knows her real name, and another one, whom he did not know really, and only as "Katarina Rostova", one of her many names.
So, we have two women at least, using the name Katarina, and both women are, in different ways, mothers to Liz. One, her biological mother, was a woman he only knew as "Katarina Rostova", and the other is Katarina, Dom's daughter. But we also know that Fakerina said she does not know why they chose her. That means that Fakerina believed there were at least three of them, because otherwise, if they were two and Dom wanted to save his daughter, it would be evident why her. So we might have three women pretending to be "Katarina Rostova".
FAKERINA TO ILYA: I've thought a lot about why you chose me as the lamb you could take to slaughter. You thought I was weak the prey and not the predator.
We have then confirmation on two sides that Katarina was not Liz's biological mother, but was her real mother. A woman who took her in and loved her, raised her until she had to give her up because she was being chased by the CIA and the KGB.
But we also know that Katarina existed, and yet, "Katarina Rostova", legendary KGB seductress was a myth, like Agent Masik told Liz, an amalgamation of a few Soviet operatives, using the same name to create a mythic agent. Just like Red created "Edgar Legate", a mythic assassin that nobody had seen, but in reality was just a name used by a lot of people. Trying to find a name inhabited by many people is nearly impossible. Each person gives contradictory clues.
It is even likely that the flaming red hair and light eyes was part of the identity, because the woman in the swing was blond, and the photo of Katarina's mother' estranged daughter had dark hair, which be Katarina or not, makes it highly likely Katarina too had dark hair.
https://preview.redd.it/7rstibubhxk51.png?width=1916&format=png&auto=webp&s=ecef5487f448879bca1dbf5d1767605c951e691a
We have one more aspect to consider, and that is what two contradictory statements made by Katarina to her parents mean in term of Katarina's real allegiance:
Since the KGB considered Katarina a traitor, then it means that Katarina's mother, Lena Volkova (as she appears credited), was KGB, while her father, Dom, was not KGB, but then likely CIA, or MI-6 or something of the sort, so that she tells him she was not a traitor. While the CIA may have believed for a while she was a traitor, ultimately Alan Fitch was her boss, and what he was doing may have been sectioned, if illegal. Remember the CIA is actively trying NOT to find her.
https://preview.redd.it/zped6gxkhxk51.png?width=1335&format=png&auto=webp&s=a288dcfd9981d0faf15ff8d29f7241eef89ed04b
Katarina was then pretending to be KGB, or had been recruited by the KGB, but in reality she was CIA, and given a burn notice. They first deny she exist, and do not try to find her, just like Brian Osterman, who was in reality even after being "dismissed" and records eliminated, but who was running a secret mission for his boss, Director Wilcox (new Clandestine Service chief), like Katarina was doing for Fitch (remember that Fitch in 2014 was the Assistant Director of National Intelligence, but we have no idea what job he had in 1990).
And that helps explain a lot of what is happening around her supposed KGB "comrades", Ilya and her father Dom. Both are described as ghosts, neither prints nor face can be identified.
Dom had supposedly been investigated as Oleander by the CIA, yet his prints and face are not in the databases, and Ressler cannot find him. So that investigation was either a sham, or was quickly shuttered from above.
https://preview.redd.it/h3wgm7ephxk51.png?width=1280&format=png&auto=webp&s=e3651c24089b8425be86fd497758787f23be9fb0
While if "Ilya Koslov" had really been a Soviet citizen working for an embassy in the US during the Cold War, he would have been vetted multiple times (by the FBI among others) and spied on. The FBI, however, have nothing on him, which means the Koslov identity was a made up identity and Ilya's name is not Koslov, and he was not really KGB. Even under a different name, his prints and face would be on file had he really been a USSR diplomat.
So what we have is a massive charade in which Dom as Oleander, Ilya as "Ilya Koslov" and Katarina as "Katarina Rostova" are pretending to BE KGB (or recruited as such while being agents for the other side. Their identities had been scrubbed once the "job" was done. The Russians tell Ressler who Dom was (Katarina Rostova's father), and a British agent, Skip Sutherland, digs up a file on "Ilya Koslov," just like Mossad knew who Leonard Caul was when the US had no record of him.
DOM TO RED: You were the architect of this charade.
What we know is that "Ilya" is his real first name, he is a childhood friend of Red, has been using the name Frank Bloom, and he retired in 1991.
https://preview.redd.it/i8z4fr14ixk51.png?width=1040&format=png&auto=webp&s=ecf909345b0942221394efed3ac3e9058299af71
We know that "Dominic" is Dom's real first name, and that he has something identifiable in him that would signal him as a Rostov, if he goes to a hospital. This might point to his being Constantin's distant uncle who contracted the Ribowski virus and lived longer than any other Rostov with a disease inherited through the paternal line.
https://preview.redd.it/6tc6cuj6ixk51.png?width=728&format=png&auto=webp&s=0c913ffdad48cb2b31c2ae1d639ab7f211cc72a3
But that does not mean his real last name is Rostov, because he could have been adopted by a step father, or the family may have changed their name. We know Dom, before falling into a coma as a product of Fakerina's attack, was 81 and took a lot of medication.
https://preview.redd.it/19s8aamtixk51.png?width=1168&format=png&auto=webp&s=e46fbe1fb02c4593abba1d9992915437731c4b39
Both Dom and Lena have ties to New York: Lena, having met Katarina in the Cross Sound Ferry terminal, and Dom having a cabin that closely resembles one child's drawing kept with Katarina's childhood mementos and American toys, which suggests that Dom had that cabin when Katarina was growing up.
https://preview.redd.it/gxebyobpixk51.png?width=1909&format=png&auto=webp&s=8d815895450f6cdd595147eeffc9e264f69abfb0
This suggests that Katarina grew up in the US, Dom lived in the US when she was growing up, and that Lena story of coming to the US in the 1970s after breaking up with her husband in Russia is balderdash, yet we have indications she might have been KGB. A sleeper agent? Or that husband was not Dom.
When we looked at Alan Fitch, Katarina's real boss, what stands out is what he was really doing, especially in regards to the cabal and Red.
Regardless of what he told the cabal, and even what he and Red talked in public places, what Fitch was doing was protecting Red, telling the others Red had a death switch he knew well was a lie, because the fulcrum had 4 parts, and he was still holding one of them.
https://preview.redd.it/qjnxfvywlxk51.png?width=864&format=png&auto=webp&s=857e96498e6b3f72a5cb7c5cc3479a0b1fdc0012
Fitch and Katarina, then, are likely to have recorded that incriminating tape found at Minister D to exonerate Red if needed, something Red called a Pyrrhic victory, one in which the cost is higher than the outcome. Everything about that tape should be taken with a grain of salt, or likely, a few: from the date on the tape, to the contents of it, and even who caused that fire at Minister D's.
So Fitch and Katarina were involved in the cabal, but Red (and RR) did not know anything about it.
So far, we have Katarina and RR, who are not who they say they are. Reddington seems to be an assumed last name, and Katarina, whatever her real last name really is, is pretending to be a KGB agent.
We have Liz, who is not who she thinks she is (Masha Rostova), daughter of bio-father, RR, and her bio-mother, a KGB agent whose real name name is not known to Red, and having an adopted, real mother, Katarina.
We have Ilya and Dom who are ghosts, using fake last names, pretending to be KGB operatives.
https://preview.redd.it/1easww0cpxk51.png?width=1916&format=png&auto=webp&s=2a25a0b83999bf9f249dde566166891b24c41f10
We have Katarina's mother, who seemed to have been really KGB, based on what Katarina tells her, telling her new husband Ted King a ludicrous story:
She told me she was from Saint Petersburg, uh, that she'd split with her husband in her 40s, came to America to start over, and spent the rest of her life here.
and who has a hidden photo who she tells Ted was a estranged daughter. Ressler assumed that was Katarina, but we do not know that. Put together with another drawing found among Katarina's childhood things, of a man with two dark haired girls, and the photo Scottie has of a dark haired woman blowing bubbles with a girl, and it seems that we have at least some clues that point to:
  1. Lena may have had two daughters,
  2. Katarina may have been a brunette, and
  3. Scottie may be a sister, a half sister, or a cousin to Katarina, which also goes to what Red tell Dom:
The tense (" always had") tells us this is not about the new born baby. Dom has always had other family members other than Liz (who they think is dead), and Katarina, who Dom cannot see.
More so, we have Scottie and Liz sharing a middle name, Scott, which might be Scottie's maiden name and Liz's mother maiden name. And if so, were Katarina and Scottie sisters, half sisters or cousins? And is then Scott Dom's real last name?
Scottie's is another character whose actions are shrouded in secrecy. Red says "people like us", establishing a connection to her that we still do not know what it means precisely, because Red and Scottie do not share much that is apparent, other than being strategists.
When we looked at the abduction of young Christopher Hargrave, we deduced that Howard, his father, was an innocent party, his actions being logical for the father of a missing child, and he was not swayed by the fake confession that stopped the official investigation. He continued looking, and he found his son, likely when Tom's DNA hit CODIS as part of unknown DNA in the crime scene of Fake Berlin in 1.22 (2014). Red may have provided the missing details about the Major, because we know between 1.22 and 2.08 Red went from being ready to kill Tom, to just warn him not to see Liz again.
While we deduced that Scottie likely knew who had taken him, and/or had to do something to get him back, which is likely she did, at least partly, and then may have hidden her son with someone she trusted, and was told the child had died, because she undergoes a big change about six months after the abduction, after a car accident. It is likely Scottie was who arranged the fake confession (or knew who did) in order to protect who had taken him first, and/or what she had done to get him back, where and with whom she had hidden him, and what had really happened to young Christopher.
It is likely that IF Scottie is Lena's daughter, it is she who she is protecting, for Lena's curious locations, and the date she found Ted King to marry, coincide when Tom's. Where he was, and when he disappeared again, this time by being recruited by the Major. If so, it is likely Lena never told Scottie she had found her son, or that he had lost him again, in 1998.
https://preview.redd.it/gim10yuqpxk51.png?width=1916&format=png&auto=webp&s=2c40cad2b9c89f93238611f2deff45e1e5d78b0a
We also examined the man who became Liz's only real father, Sam Milhoan. A man whose connections to Katarina where not known at all, so IF they happened, it was under Katarina's real identity, or under Sam's real identity, if Milhoan is not his real name. We know Sam knew Katarina, but we also know that it is likely his real connection was RR, for he seems to want Katarina to come back for her kid, and he seems indignant about what is being said about Reddington. Sam is also someone Red loves, and knows for most of his life. What is notorious is that while Katarina asked Sam to take care of her child, Sam in reality follows Red's directives to raise Liz, joining Dom, who follows what Red wants in what to tell Liz, and Naomi, who also ASKS Red when is Red going to tell Liz something.
Now let us turn to Liz's other parent, RR only known, non-blood relatives, his wife and daughter of record. The hapless, forever cheated on Naomi, and her sad daughter Jennifer, hiding in utter fear.
Of course the narrative on Naomi Hyland AKA Carla Reddington does not hold up any better to scrutiny.
For one, she was in WITSEC, which is not for scared wives, but for witness who provide evidence or testimony. So we have supposedly fake evidence fabricated by the lover, Katarina, but is the wife who seems to have provided it. Naomi also seem to have instilled in her daughter Jennifer a genuine fear of Reddington, but we know she was not scared of Red at all. If her father had died, it would have been easier to tell so to her daughter, rather than letting her live in fear?
Naomi also uses strange words to refer to what she left behind, "one life", not "her life". She inquires how much Liz knows, seems to take his cues of what to say to Liz from Red, but recognizes in Agent Elizabeth Keen little Masha Rostova. She marvels at Red "pulling it off" working with Liz. She also emphasizes that Jennifer is HER daughter.
Naomi's 2014 kidnapping by Berlin ends with Red giving her a new identity with her husband, but when he looks for her in 2019 because of the bones, he cannot find her or any news of a violent death.
Naomi held to dismemberment without providing Berlin with any information, attempted a daring and difficult attack to escape, and has a temper shown in the punch to the face she gives Red, drawing blood. Yet their goodbye remains a tender affair. She also told Red that Jennifer left because she was scared of him, which is not what Jennifer tells Red.
And talking about Jennifer Reddington, nothing does any better in the matter of holding the narrative. While she appears a sad woman working in a bar for minimum wage when we meet her, we know she has a college education, it is likely that the identity Lillian Roth was given to her in 2017 (no trace of college or any prior life events, like she appeared in 2017) and she may have recognized Liz, because if she was scared of her father, she likely followed news about him, and Liz was attached to Reddington's name while she was a fugitive. She also knows Liz is remembering things said about the beach house. "20 steps to the sand".
If RR saw his daughter Masha, then it makes sense she would spend time with him, and likely his wife and daughter, since they both recognize her.

https://preview.redd.it/gofiuyizpxk51.png?width=599&format=png&auto=webp&s=eddec904a8f8cfa916154cf415c6894b8d06c58e
Jennifer tells Liz that she is Jennifer Reddington, which makes no sense because she is hiding from him, and Liz has been linked to him. But not only that, when she comes into possession of the bones, instead of going to Liz (she had been to her apartment), Ross has this elaborate plan where he takes Liz fake-hostage and Red exchanges himself for her life, and Liz is beaten up voluntarily, all to have Red tell them the secret of the bones, which supposedly they have, because there is a report shown to Liz by Jennifer, which states the bones had been identified as the remains of RR. If she really wanted Liz's help, was calling her for a chat too simple a deal? Or was that high stakes charade necessary to sell that ludicrous report?
Later, the sister join forces, with Jennifer supposedly scared to death Red would see her, but meeting with him with no fear in a restaurant, unbeknown to Liz, to take him to "Naomi's" (not her mother's) tombstone in exchange for honest answers about the only real question she asked of Red: "Why am I here?"
The bones's identification as RR's remains does not hold any better to scrutiny than the rest of the narrative has. Liz undoubtedly saw a report which told her that the remains were of her bio-father, RR. But the actions of all the others who look at the report, or interact with or about the bones makes no sense if that is their ID.
https://preview.redd.it/bb93pqx4qxk51.png?width=755&format=png&auto=webp&s=621514d280fa3a5f7095cf545742591a1d07a852
DEMBE: Ross wants blood. He thinks you (RED=RR) ruined his life. (BY TRICKING ROSS TO SELL BOGUS PLANS)
RED: I didn't give Sutton Ross bogus plans for the Grayscape Seventeen. (IT WAS A US NAVY COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OPERATION)
DEMBE: But he thinks you (RED=RR) did, and because of that, he wants to world to know what's inside the duffel. (A SECRET RED WANTS TO KEEP, NOT THE BONES OF RR, ON WHOM ROSS WANTS REVENGE)
So, if, as it seems, the bones could not have really been identified as the remains of RR, Liz's bio-father, how on earth did Liz see a report that said just that? It seems likely Jennifer made a fake DNA test, as Red warned Liz not to be fooled by such a thing:
Honestly, Elizabeth, it astounds me that you could be hornswoggled by something as simple to fabricate as a DNA profile.
And if she did this, then her objective was to fool Liz into believing Red was a supplanter, not their father (Biological father for Liz, and if we trust the emphasis Naomi put on Jennifer being HER daughter, Jennifer's legal father), but not bio-father.)
At the first opportunity available, Jennifer convinced Liz to send Red to jail, where he would stand trial for treason, thus answering what was Jennifer first real question to Red: "Why am I here?", meaning why was she in WITSEC, a question Red answered by telling Jennifer:
You weren't abandoned. You were protected.... In 1990, the KGB and the CIA had almost nothing in common except the mutual determination to hunt down one individual.... Being a fugitive from American law enforcement is a lot easier than being a fugitive from the two most powerful nations on Earth. And anyone close to a target of theirs becomes a target themselves....Especially family.
Jennifer seemed to believe that individual was Red, but we know it was katarina, chased by the CIA and the KGB. And when Red is put on trial for treason, the evidence which landed him indicted of it surfaces: evidence that he was framed by Katarina Rostova, working with Fitch. And if his wife was in witness protection for providing the evidence, the trail of money to the accounts, as it seems, then it exposed for those in the know, who had framed him. Red gave Jennifer the why.
Why were Naomi and Jennifer hiding, and who was to blame.
As well as why was RR still using the name Reddington, instead of changing his face and using a different name: it maintained Naomi in WITSEC awaiting a trial that for 30 years had not happened, as long as he appeared to be alive. Sure, his being a criminal protected Liz, but it was not remaining Raymond Reddington that did it, because nobody knew the relationship between them, one he takes pains not to reveal. So, the only reason why Red, regardless of who he was before, remained Raymond Reddington past getting money from the banks, was for the benefit of one person: The woman we met as Naomi Hyland.
When we get to the framing of RR for the Gideon, again we run into a while bunch of nonsense trying to uphold the apparent narrative. For example, If RR was truly the ONLY officer who knew the coordinates, how come he was not a suspect? Even before Katarina framed him, he would have been a suspect, he should have been investigated. But he was not, he was a respected officer going around his business.
We then have the communique expressing Lamprey indicated new coordinates. It HAD to have been found contemporary to the events, or shortly thereafter, or a frame up would be suspected. So, who was Lamprey? And who indicated Lamprey was RR? Because whoever Lamprey was, he/she was a valuable asset for the KGB, while RR was considered the KBG's biggest enemy.
The money part, those $6 million, that was easy to do and backdate. Fingerprints and a password. But it seems to me that Katarina simply found a way to convey that Lamprey was Reddington, which was a nice sleight of hand. And so we have to consider that Lamprey was a traitor, likely in the CIA or the US Navy and that by framing Reddington, Katarina also protected him/her.
And that takes us to the fire. RR (bio-father) takes his child because Katarina (adoptive-mother) would not let him see her. This the early Fall of 1991, given how Kate and the cops are dressed. So, we know NOTHING of what was happening and where were:
  1. RR with a small child,
  2. Katarina looking for him,
  3. Carla Reddington, who was no longer living in the DC area,
  4. The Russians who seem to have lost an agent?
  5. What is Constantin Rostov doing?
  6. Where was Kate waiting?
That narrative does not hold up at all, especially because as Red says, Katarina wanted to be a family with RR. So, is Katarina the woman playing with Liz and RR in a Christmas tree lot, so before December 24th? Is she the woman heard saying "catch me" while Liz and who could be another child, dressed identically, are trying to find "him", before a man calls Liz "Lizzy and the girl runs to him, happily. Or is this woman heard there Carla Reddington, and RR took Liz to his wife and child in an undisclosed location?
Then we addressed the memories of the fire, and the arguments, concluding that we have two sets of arguments, one between RR and Katarina, and another between Katarina and some other man.
We have 2 locations, one a live in house, from which Liz is abducted after the house was on fire. The place where Liz sees Hat Man outside, down but trying to get up, and unless Liz remembers her hair in different ways, we might have a curly hair girl and a wavy hair girl, which, if Liz does not remember having a sister, and the girls looked similar, she might think is her. Then we have an extraction, in which Katarina seems to be distracting the man, while there is a rescue until the man realizes there are people in the house, who are then directed to search for a small object. This is where the fights happened, and where Liz shoots her father, or who she thinks is her father.
So what we see as one long argument may be two occasions, even if there are on the same night. The questions remain: we have two months to account for, between the abduction from Cape Breton Island, and the fire, as we know RR is reported missing by his wife Carla circa December 27th.
When did the KGB realize she was not coming back? Did they get to Rostov to asking him questions? Is this when he hid, changed his name? Lost his investments in Russia? And how come nobody realizes this Kirk dude is Rostov? Is it because they never met the real Constantin Rostov? Who did they think was Rostov? And what exactly was Katarina really doing for the KGB?
Was she the one seducing targets? Or was that another one of the women using the name, such as Fakerina? A woman who said:
With all the stories of women forced to marry or to have children (1.13 The Cyprus Agency, 2.12 The Kenyon Family, 4.13 Alistair Pitt, 4.15 The Apothecary, 6.17 Ana Grazia Duerte, 7.07 Hanna Hayes), six storylines featuring women forced by various means to marry, or to have children, we have to wonder, did someone forced Fakerina to have a child she did not want? Or was it part of her job to get kompromat?
We even have men having children they did not even know they had, basically because they were dead in Nyle Hatcher. Because one thing we have learn about what Red knows about Fakerina (or blond Kat) is that they do not know what's her real name:
She doesn't have a name. She's a ghost. Think of a name, any name, and that could be it.
and
Mmmh I knew her as Katarina Rostova. One of her many names. She was a KGB agent**.**
So it is possible that Fakerina, or another one of the women playing "Katarina Rostova" is Liz's bio-mother. Was she the one assigned to seduce RR? A sleeper agent, seducing a young Naval officer?
35 years ago, a Naval intelligence officer working for the US government fell fell into a relationship with a beautiful Russian woman. Unbeknownst to his superiors, that relationship, which started as guarded attraction, quickly evolved into passion, which resulted in pregnancy.
They had the child. A girl, whom they both loved.
What the Naval officer didn't know, but certainly should have suspected, was that the Russian woman was a KGB officer, that Katarina Rostova had been assigned to get close to Raymond Reddington and steal classified information from him.
And having children with targets was sometimes a technique used to enhance the control on the targets. Did the bio-mother really love Liz? We do not know. What we know is that the woman raising her is not the bio-mother, but Katarina.

2020.09.02 08:42 PatrirachZell Real cheating wife hidden

Hello Fellow Daoists, I am back, this time I will be talking about the various protagonist in webnovels, I will only write on webnovels that I feel that there’s the actual development of their personalities, for example, for against the gods or martial god asura, the people feel that they are very kind and help the rest, but IMO they are quite hypocritical. Thus, I will not be including them. But please do not misunderstand as I read both of these novels and I love them. Just that they are not so suitable as some of the character developments in web novels are “given” by the author and now “shown”.

1. Scheming
2. Dark and heartless
3. Comedy
4. Righteous and Bright
5. Harem Seeking
6. Serious and Hardworking

1. Scheming

-Some of the authors out there will write beautiful conspiracies and plots. The main characters have great foresight and predict many futures events and plan for them. Especially the beginning few chapters of the web novels when the protagonist is still weak and require to use his or her wits to survive in this world where the strong reign supreme.
But honestly, for some reason, you just find a web novel with a female lead or yaoi, you can get a decent story with lots of scheming for some reason.
[CN] The Good for Nothing Seventh Young Lady (2641/2759) [On-going Translations] [Female Lead, Xuan Huan world, handsome guys everywhere]
Short Summary: Relaxing, minor thrills, greater, school life. The story might have some plot holes as the author seems to forget what she was writing. However, this is a female in a xuanhuan world. This allows the author to Female Lead to make her quite smart.
-
[CN] Rebirth of the General’s Granddaughter (203/406 3 parts per chapter) [On-going Translations] [Historical, Female Lead, Politics, Reverse Harem]
Short Summary: If you like cultivation, read the rest, however, if you like politics, conspiracies, and using modern memories in an ancient world, this is a good read. There are some aspects of cultivation, however it is not the main point. It is mostly on how the protagonist gets revenge and a huge reverse harem (something special about the way she married).
-
[CN] The Earth is Online (245/245) [Completely Translated] [Tower, modern-day and fantasy fusion, game elements, Boy Love]
Short summary: What you can expect from this novel is the memorable antagonists while the main character and the main lead(guy) grow together and is filled with mind games. The protagonist is extremely smart and is able to pick up different clues (like sherlock holms). If you are not turned off by a BL webnovel, it will be one of the best webnovels you will find.
-
[CN] Card room (224/600 +) [On-going translations and writing] [Card world, puzzles, gambling, Boy love]
Short summary: Similar to TEIO, the card room has similar settings, however it is a world filled with games, which can be extremely mind-blowing, however, the interactions between the main lead and the MC (guys), will be very sweet at times and they take on different roles, the brain and the brawns.
-
[CN] The transmigration survival guide (v9/v14) [On-going Translations] [everything you think is not right will happen, incest, master-servant, parent-complex, extreme kuudere]
Short Summary: First this webnovel is only for the particular groups of ‘cultured’ and masochistic people. It is a softcore, adventure with a transmigrated mc (by truck-kun). Which he has no overpowered cheat abilities and remains mediocre for most of the story. This leads to mostly scheming and conspiracies. If you read before release the witch, this takes it to another level.
-
[CN] History No1 Founder (1486/1486) [Completely Translated] [Xuan Huan, Multiple POV, Sect development adventure,]
Short summary: Our protagonist obtains a system that makes him recruits various protagonists from other webnovels and pretends to be op, but is actually not. Which he scams the main characters of different webnovels to be his disciples.
Literally counting the money of the person that sold you off. The protagonist somehow manages to act mysterious and strong, that leads to his disciples worshipping him. Quite a funny and light read not much deep plot. Repetitive after awhile.
-
[CN] Lord of the Mysteries (1394/1394) [Completely Translated] [Eastern Fantasy, Unique world-building, Unique cultivation system, Good Vs Bad, Dark]
Short Summary: This webnovel has been quite popular lately, if you haven’t tried, you are missing out on a lot. The plot is beautifully written and prepare for an emotional ride. This novel is more about the hidden organizations and the underlying schemes. Beautiful work, everyone should give it a try. Drop it if you don’t like it, but you can try some chapters. Similar works will be: Throne of Magical Arcana
-
[CN] Record of a Mortal’s Journey to Immortality (1672/2446) [On-going Translations] [Slow-paced, Xian Xia, Multiple Realms]
Short Summary: Maybe you might have read I shall seal the heavens before, it is even slower-paced than that. This webnovel shows how our main character grows from the start to the end. How he struggles to even embark on the path of cultivation. The schemes that he have to done just to ensure that he is on equal footing with the rest of the people.
While the underlying conspiracy against him. If you hate slow-paced webnovel this might not be for you. However, the foundations set for this webnovel is great for future chapters. Remember, It is 2446 chapters long and it is in the top rankings in China.
-
[CN] Divine Throne of primordial blood (1155/1158) [Translations finishing] [Bloodline, Xunahuan, School life, adventure]
Short Summary: This is probably one of the rare few xuan huan novels that the protagonist have both strength and brains. As he knows that he is severely limited because of his bloodline (bloodline is the main cultivation requirement), he uses everything that he can to his benefits.
Even an assassin organization sent after him is sucked by him. He also knows how to secure his safety before doing anything stupid, unlike the most protagonists in xuan huan webnovels which do first and pray for plot armor. Minor spoiler: for those that have a problem with his eyes, it gave him interactions with the female lead, and will eventually recover, it is not a problem at all!
-
[KR] Dungeon Defense (5/5 volumes) [Author Hiatus] [Lazy protagonist, Army building, demons, and demon lords, Social Hierarchy]
Short Summary: Lazy Protagonist with a brilliant mind. As most people would say, the lazier the person, the more efficient he does things. Same as our protagonist, however, he just throws all the hard work to the secretary and makes use of her. However, he may seem like some retarded kid, when the time comes, he can be serious enough.
-
[KR] Second life Ranker (239/800) [On-going Translations] [Tower-climb, revenge, conspiracies, ruthless, stats]
Short Summary: Imagine a weak brother trying to climb a tower and becoming to best without telling his protective twin brother and died trying. That’s right, now his twin brother will use the cold-hearted personality that he has to climb the tower and get revenge for his twin brother.
The protagonist will use everything and everyone that he can, such as take whichever side of the clans that give him the most benefits and will get him revenge. He is not completely heartless as he takes care of some side characters.


2. Dark and Heartless
[CN] Warlock of the Magus World (1200/1200) [Completely Translated] [Dark, Gore, Eastern Fantasy, Mage]
[CN] Age of Adepts (1253/1512) [On-going Translations] [Dark, Gore, Eastern Fantasy, Mage]
Short Summary: Both webnovels, set in the world of underground mages, which everything the is disturbing is available in the world. Gore, Human Experiment, Vampires, slaves. The main character will do everything, however, the story is intriguing as you can slowly see the main protagonist grow stronger through unconventional means, especially when they lack talent.
[CN] Mechanical God Emperor (643/1569) [On-going Translations] [Xuanhuan, Sci-fi, Mecha]
Short Summary: This webnovel is similar to AOA and WMW, however, it is more towards sci-fi, as there are all sorts of abilities and the constructions that our protagonist makes. It has a great world, however, the webnovel is quite racist if you have read god and devil world before. The only selling point is the cheat ability and the antihero personality of the protagonist.
[CN] Reverend Insanity (1877/2335) [On-going Translation and Author Hiatus] [Evil, Cunning, Ruthless, Xuanhuan, unique cultivation world]
Short Summary: The writing is on the same tier as lord of the mysteries, because of him being extremely cold-blooded, his actions will make you think that the author is really insane. However, his methods to obtain what he needs through sacrificing anything he can makes this webnovel very good. It is not for the faint-hearted. Those who prefer webnovels that the protagonist have principles should not be looking at this web novel.
[CN] Grasping Evil (395/1256 +) [On-going Translations] [Great after 200 chapters, evil protagonist, xuanhuan, dual cultivation technique]
Short Summary: Ning Fan does not care about being good, he kills, steals, rapes*, it gets better after the first 200 chapters as it mostly focuses on world-building and settling down the cultivation systems. Lots of interesting adventures and side characters are never forgotten. P.S the Protagonist is still a sentimental guy, he is not cold-blooded unlike Gu Yue Fang Yuan
[CN] Great Demon King (913/1027) [On-going Translations] [Xuan Huan, Anti Hero protagonist, wars, unique cultivation world]
Short Summary: The world Is set in a place filled with lots of sexiness and R-18 scenes, he is extremely lucky, and he grows from being immature 13-14 (he had sex at that age too) to a much more seinen and mature character. Furthermore, this is the first time I’ve seen the main character reflect his actions over the course of the webnovel.
[KR] The Overlord of Blood and Iron (259/355) [On-going Translation] [Dungeons, Army, Sword and Magic]
Short Summary: First, the mc might be immature and childish at times, however, the plot is on the protagonist earning subordinates and becoming the overlord. Furthermore, the author also incorporates a lot of different troupe, and it blends in well together.
[CN] The Godsfall Chronicles (910/910) [Completely Translated] [Fantasy, Martial Arts, Dark]
Short Summary: The fights are extremely intensive and never-ending that it might be quite exhausting. The cultivation system is also quite unique as it is not an immortality accession but more of a down to earth type. It is mostly about ‘metas’ and psychic powers. Although there is a set of cultivation systems, it only shows a few realms.
The main point of this factor is that our protagonist is chosen by devil which you do not see often.
[JP] Overlord (LN) (V14/V14 + ) [Translations on-going and Author is still writing] [Adventure, tome, overlord, fantasy world]
Short Summary: There is no cultivation in this, and even though this is a transmigrated into a game world, he is already at the top of the food chain when he transmigrated, which means that most of the time is just his adventure of abusing people. It is quite a good read on how the protagonist character develops and how he justifies his own evil deeds.
3. Comedy
Have you tired a webnovel where the protagonist loves to play innocent when they are actually the cause of all the problems? The comedy element is great in all these web novels.
[CN] Divine Card creator (435/785) [On-going Translations] [xuanhuan, unique world system, legacies, bro-con]
Short Summary: Divine card creator is the best-hidden gem I have ever read. It has the comedian in it, which our protagonist is. He is able to flatten anything and everywhere he goes and stir up trouble no matter how impossible it is. Lots of fun. However, if you are looking for a serious webnovel, this might not be for you.
-
[CN] A will eternal (1315/1315) [Completely Translated] [Xianxia, Alchemist, Coward and shameless protagonist, artifacts]
Short Summary: Bai Xiao Chun is a funny and innocent protagonist that is seldom serious. However, he is extremely hard-working although he trolls a lot. He will spend most of his time in a sect, but it feels more like an adventure in the sect. It is also another light read with a lot of fun in a xianxia world.
-
[CN] Ultimate Scheming System (1566/1566) [Author Hiatus] [Xuanhuan, system, Acting]
Short Summary: Our protagonist will receive a system. However, the system literally wants the protagonist to act tough. Which means pretend to be very op when he is not. So it will be extremely funny trying to read on a protagonist constantly seeking death and trolling the enemy. Another light and fun read with a more serious plot in the later chapters.
-
[CN] The strongest system (1159/1159) [Completely Translated] [System, Xuanhuan, Perverted skills and protagonist]
Short Summary: Quite similar to the ultimate scheming system, but what the protagonist has is not act tough, but skills like monkey steal peaches, which literally mean grabbing the ahem... Well, the protagonist puts on an extremely righteous look while doing so. Especially the rest of his skills are related similarly. Imagine having to use it an uncountable number of times just to increase his skill level. Which he actually does. So how do the people around him feel? Read and find out. HAHA!
-
[CN] Experimental log of the crazy lich (810/836) [On-going Translations] [Evil system, lich, self-justified protagonist]
Short Summary: This is more of an adventure and points collection webnovel. Our protagonist will be trying to revive his lost body, however, it is through obtaining points. How to obtain points? Do this [Either kill 30000 people or steal a lollipop]. As you can see, the system will either ask him to do stupid things or kill him. Either way. It is an enjoyable read as the Mc is constantly thinking about what to do.
-
[CN] God of illusions (453/638) [On-going translations and Author is still writing] [smart protagonist, funny beast companion, xuanhuan, illusions]
Short Summary: The protagonist has a unique set of skills that complements his personality extremely well. He was brought up in a gorge filled with the world’s most legendary figures which he learns how to use wits to his advantage. Which brings him back to purposely trolling the people around him. Unlike AWE and DCC, where they never really planned their methods.
-
[CN] I might be a Fake Cultivator (1293/2398) [On-going Translations] [Modern World, Hidden Cultivators Society, System, multiple realms]
Short Summary: This is set in the same world as a modern society, however the protagonist got a system in which he believed that he was lucky. How wrong he was. Then, he was sent to a realm that was located in the “cultivator” world. Which he goes to and fro from modern society.
The comedic part is the nature of the system that is literally telling the protagonist “can you go and die now?”
-
4. Righteous and bright
[CN] Child of Light (356/356) [Completely Translated] [Elemental magic, Light, and Dark, Fairytale like,]
Short Summary: This is TJSS’s first-ever webnovel, so the writing might not be very good. However, if you like fairytales where it is filled with innocent and lovely people, the protagonist is extremely innocent and filled with light. Especially when the protagonist starts off very young. However, if you are looking for some serious writing and experienced author that has a lot of deceptions, just go to the next webnovel.
P.S This was one of the first few webnovel I read, so I might be biased as I do not remember it being as bad as what everyone is saying
[CN] Shen Yin Wang Zuo [871/871] [Completely Translated] [Light, Sweet Romance, Light Vs Dark, Vocations]
Short Summary: The story in set in a world against demons, and the protagonist and his group of friends are talented enough to be the savior of the millennium-long war. If you like to see a leader commanding his talented group of friends, beast companions, unique artifacts and skills, well-balanced classes, and especially sweet romance. Try it out!
[CN] Douluo Dalu (336/336) [Completely Translated] [Light, Unique Cultivation World, beast spirits, mysterious background, teammates]
Short Summary: DD is one of the best webnovels out there hands down. It is the first of its series where the world-building and cultivation techniques are beautiful. It consists of School life, transiting to adventure and finally against the top of the food chain. Our protagonist is extremely kind-hearted and caring, yet he can be fierce at times too. If you want to read about a protagonist with very strong leadership and charisma, read this!
[CN] Martial Gamer (1185/1376 + ) [On-going Translations and author still writing] [ VRMMO, Kungfu master]
Short Summary: The protagonist is a very righteous person as he is a traditional Kungfu practitioner that stayed through to his core. Which even lead to his current standards of living. However, what he has is the best wife who wholeheartedly supports him. Really love her character. This is a wish-fulfillment type of webnovel for the protagonist and he gets very overpowered for a VRMMO.
P.S For those that is looking out whether this is a harem or not after reading it, currently there are a lot of female having subtle feelings for the protagonist, however he is faithful to his wife.
[JP] I was a sword when I Reincarnated (374/782) [On-going Translations and Writing] [Slice of Light, Adventure, the protagonist is a sword, no harem]
Short Summary: First, this is not a thrill-seeking, action intense nor a cultivation webnovel, this is just a normal shounen/slice of life story where the protagonist is a sword that only accepts girls as his master. However, he is not the harem seeking protagonist. He is just a sword LOL, he only talk to like 3 people in the story. Well, he is protective and kind.
[CN] Martial Arts Master (753/753) [Completely Translated] [Modern, Martial Arts, Xuan Huan, no harem]
Short Summary: This might not be for some. If you have watched history strongest disciple, Kenichi, this is very similar to that. Where he gets stronger and even stronger enemies are thrown at him. Even the school life is similar. Furthermore, even the female lead is the same. Where she is more similar to what an actual real-life person would do. Instead of a female that falls in love easily in normal xuanhuan novel.


5. Harem seeking
When you read webnovels, you will definitely come across protagonists that love a huge harem. Partially because of the wish fulfillment of the author and his dreams. However, some of us might like such a genre as it is different from the sad reality hehe. Of course, I will only include non-dense protagonist with major harems.
[CN] Heavenly Jewel Change (880/ 880) Parts [Completely Translated] [Harem, Unique cultivation world, and techniques, leader and charismatic]
Short Summary: Our protagonist becomes extremely talented and starts to become more confident where he falls in love quite easily. Almost all the most beautiful person he has ever seen falls in love with him and he is not the typical dense protagonist you see. He embraces them and creates a huge harem. However, this story is written in such a way that it is not overly excessive, and they are all not forgotten.

[CN] Long live summons (785/1399) [On-going Translations] [Harem, all types of relationships, monster capturing, unique world building]
Short Summary: This is set in a world with a unique concept, it captures monster in a book and rank them, while they summon them to use. Similar to pokemon. However, what he catches is not just pokemon but all the beautiful women he encounters. The story and plot is unique though. And even though he got a huge harem, the author is a great writer and managed to blend everyone together. One of the most unique webnovel I have ever read. Try it!

[CN] Ancient Strengthening Technique (2492/2492) [Completely Translated] [Xuanhuan, multiple realms, dual cultivation technique]
Short Summary: This is your typical xuanhuan novels that the protagonist progresses from weak to strong. However, the catch is that he obtains an item that allows him to get stronger with every female that join his harem. Thus he embarks on a journey in the xuan huan world that he conquers all the women he meets. This is not a bad novel. But if you don’t like the cliché and long xuan huan novel, read the rest. Thank you!

[CN] Womanizing Mage (675/675) [Completely Translated] [Xuanhuan, Mature]
Short Summary: Okay, from the name you can see that this webnovel is mostly about the harem. There is no intense suspense or whatsoever type of plot. It is smooth sailing, wish-fulfillment webnovel that only seeks to entertain its readers by churning out females that fall from the sky. The selling point of this webnovel is the personality of the protagonist. The amount of shit that he gives to anything and anyone.

[JP] Magika no Kenshi to Shoukan Maou (14V/14V) [Completely Translated] [Sword and magic, battle academy]
Short Summary: Hmm, what can we do without at least 1 JP novel being part of the harem seeker group? Let me present one of the better harem novels out there. Cliché, yes! But what makes this novel different from the rest that seeks slaves and harem? The side characters got their own personality, the villains are not there to boost the protagonist’s ego. And there is sword and magic with lots of girls in a battle academy, a perfect setting.


6. Serious and hardworking
Of course there will be such protagonists, where they will train so much that they become obsessive with self-harm training techniques. You will feel their growth and the amount of blood and sweat put into their current achievements that many around the protagonist do not understand. They only see the results, a few of such webnovels will be:
[CN] Undefeated God of War (943/943) [Completely Translated [XuanHuan, Unique cultivation world]
Short Summary: First, the protagonist is not talented at all. However, this leads to him training almost every single second. However, as he receives a unique space and spirit advisor, this leads him to train even harder to the point of him being seen as a masochist.
He starts off getting looked down upon because of him focusing too much on the foundations. However, overall, the progress from weak to strong is very appealing in this webnovel as we will feel the sweat and blood he placed to progress.
[CN] World of cultivation (915/915) [Completely Translated] [Unique cultivation world, xuanhuan, artifacts]

Short Summary: Our protagonist has a mysterious past, which leads him to have some facial problems. However, he is of the lowest class, yet he does not give up on his dreams. As he slowly regains his memories and earns money, we will understand the reason for his obsessiveness with money. The world is very beautiful and well fleshed out. Especially the side characters.
[CN] Way of choices (1184/1184) [Completely Translated [XuanHuan, mysterious plot]
Short Summary: This webnovel is filled with confusing elements, that will slowly get revealed to you over time. It is extremely slow-paced, which is especially prominent when it comes to this protagonist. He has broken meridians and cannot cultivate them. However as you can see from the title, it is his way of choice. However, what we readers will learn from this webnovel is that we should never give up. His unyielding spirit has touched my heart and taught me many things. This webnovel is filled with many elements that normal xuanhuan novels do not have.
If you are looking for a fast-paced, action, webnovel, this is not for you. You will learn many things from this webnovel

[CN] Lord of all realms (1560/1823) [On-going Translations] [Xuanhuan, Multiple Realms]
Short Summary: This starts off when the protagonist is very young, and we can see his growth. This is the typical protagonist that was looked down upon by all. However, it is different as people look down on him because of his talent but is afraid of his strength. Although he is talented later on, he is very hard working.
We will see the growth of him as a kid to an adult, a very long process in this webnovel. P.S there are times that he is quite perverted as a kid.

[CN] Chronicles of Primordial War (521/844) [On-going Translations] [Xuanhuan, slice of life, tribal]
Short Summary: It is rare for a tribal society type of xuanhuan webnovels to appear. This is one of them, which shows a slice of life type of cultivation and progression. The world-building is great and fits extremely well in the tribal sense. Although the story became quite fast-paced in the latter chapters with many things unexplained, it is still a great story.

[KR] The Second Coming of Gluttony (423/489) [On-going Translations] [Game Elements, level system, another world]
Short Summary: The protagonist is extremely serious and hard-working, if not he would be killed anytime in the webnovel. He starts off in self-pity and sadness, which he eventually becomes a better person as he gets exposed to the other side of the world. The mysteries surrounding the people around the protagonist and himself is good to read about.
It slowly transforms the protagonist’s character to a more likable one with a great plot. A bonus would be the game elements, mana, and classes.

[CN] Nine Star Burden (256/ 1272) [On-going Translations] [Futuristics, healer, dungeons]
Short Summary: The protagonist starts off with a very caring sister and mysterious background. Where he works his best to help his sister in obtaining what she wants. To even catch up and jump a few grades in his school, he needs to work very hard. Where ever since he transmigrated, he have not stopped going on adventures and ends up torturing himself every time. This is the price to pay if he wants to cultivate as fast as possible. Great and unique world-building elements with twists everywhere.

2020.09.02 07:33 user_miki Real hidden wife cheating

Welcome Brothers
I will start first with what men are in regards with their humanity.A normal person would ask why this is necessary to be pointed out.Is it not obvious?Well ,I did that because society has no good words or good attitude in regard with the other half of human species, especially in western countries.
MEN ARE GOOD PEOPLE.
MEN ARE THE EMPATHETIC SEX.
MEN HAVE BEAUTIFUL SOULS.
MEN ARE THE FORGIVERS.
MEN ARE NOT RAPISTS.
MEN ARE NOT RACISTS.
MEN ARE NOT THE OPPRESSORS.
MEN ARE HUMAN BEINGS TOO.
-WHY MEN ARE GOING THEIR OWN WAY?
Boys in schools
Yet boys and men are increasingly demonized by society at home ,in schools ,in media and at their work place.
Boys are bullied and abused in schools by girls, by feminist teachers, by their own single mothers(growing up without fathers) and by main stream media.They are often singled out, reprimanded and shamed, just for being boys.They are graded lower than the girls, they are handicapped to achieve and actively discouraged to pursue their dreams.Many are pumped with drugs,future candidates for mental health clinics.Boys are brainwashed into accepting their gender guilt for the sins they never committed or understood and heavily feminized, stripped of any resemblance of masculinity.Meekness and self degrading is rewarded ,assertiveness,curiosity ,intelligence and ambition are punished.
In the eyes of this society they are the potential rapists, potential racists, potential women beaters.Their voices are silenced ,they retreat in shame,nobody want to be associated and listen to them.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7503273/Family-autistic-boy-five-say-labeled-sexual-predator-hugging-classmates.html
https://archive.is/qDxU5
Boys and men in academia
As boys become men the demonizing continue in colleges.That if they manage to be admitted in good colleges.Most graduates are women because men have no place there.They are not wanted moreover they are actively discouraged to follow higher education. Colleges are increasingly hostile to men.Most scholarships are for women, men are excluded.Their dreams to become somebody great are shattered by an unjust and discriminatory high education system.White boys from poor families cannot have access to higher education.
The men that still get access to a good college are not of the hook.The society will not let them rest,God forbid.They are considered potential rapists, many were falsely accused of sexual assault and rape in Kangaroo Courts by feminists and expelled without due process.
In order to destruction of their soul to be complete they are forced to apologize for their skin color in reeducation courses shamed with mandatory anti-rape and anti-racist training only for white men, not for white women.
https://www.intellectualtakeout.org/article/how-higher-education-studies-men/?fbclid=IwAR0kthEZ0QP0vmbJbcA_FyUWPyEeaoXaa5DUHea8aj46CkF0sDDDa-gCdvQ

They are forced to pledge allegiance to a racist anti-men ideology that want men to be destroyed,to be humiliated and transformed into SJW drones.
Men at work.
The abuse continue with shaming and demeaning mandatory anti-rape an anti-racist anti-white, white fragility training.All our dignity it is stripped with the bullying and abuse we have to endure in order to put some food on our table.Those that are non-compliant are shamed and fired from their jobs.
If the work involves working with women you are always to be careful what you say, what you wear, your body language, where your political allegiance is.You must always watch your back, looking over your shoulder to protect yourself. You can be falsely accused of inappropriate comments, unwanted sexual advances,creation of a toxic environment,lewd jokes,sexual assault or even rape.
All by vindictive women that you may have refused their sexual advances or did not like your look(ugly)or when they want your job position and accusing you of bad behavior will get rid of you without many questions asked.
If you are accused, women will always be believed.The punishment is swift without any due process or real investigation.You will lose your job, your reputation and nobody will employ you again in the same type of job.Your dreams will be shattered ,your life is ruined.
Men in relationships.
As Robert Briffault noticed more than 80 years ago the female of the species determine the conditions of the mating and forming families.Regarding mating ritual of humans a common pattern was observed from anecdotal evidence ,from experience of different men with women for many years ,from women recounting of their personal preferences (so called "standards"),and also in recent modern days with researches using statistical analysis on dating sites regarding dating behavior on personal preferences of men and women.
What all this gathered data managed to conclude was a behavioral pattern of modern women , specifically that 80% of women want to date/mate with the top 20% of men .
80% of women consider those the 20% as the real men.
As society is pumping more and more narcissism in women(girls you can do anything,you are stunning and brave, you don't need men and at the same time you can have any man regardless of how your are as a person.) the dating world became worse and worse,you can see now entitled fat, obnoxious, lazy women with 2 pages list of requirement for the men they are looking for.It is mind blowing.
That human female mating preference was studied extensively in the last years by many manosphere scholars and is called Hypergamy. More about that ,you can find in the The Rational Male by Rollo Tomassi and on his site.
https://therationalmale.com/
There are also many articles and discussions on internet on this topic of Human female hypergamy.
See also Briffault's Laws( Robert Briffault English surgeon, anthropologist):
https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/blog/machiavellians-gulling-the-rubes/201610/briffaults-law-women-rule
They consider only 20% of men being attractive enough .Modern women mate preferences include the guys over 6" tall muscular, confident ,with good sexual prowess,having their shit together(those are the common requirements that women put in their bio searching for suitable mates)and/or guys that exhibit the dark triad personality and variations(sociopaths, lack of empathy, narcissists, aggressive, manipulative ).The better combination of looks with dark triad personality the more women are attracted to those type of men.
With the advent of the social media and explosive spreading of dating sites these women have access and compete for these men.They are more than happy to share those men.They make babies with those men . They don't see or even consider other men below their so called "standards".
That left the 80% of men scrapping the bottom of barrel, left to choose from 20% of women that nobody want to date(fat obese entitled women, junkies, tatted single mothers with many children, wasted CC riders, aso).
These included the so called the "nice guys" that are expected to marry the "leftover" women(that have children from multiple relationships ) and slave all their life life raising children of the other men.
This imbalance in dating market left normal men unable to find a suitable mates.The dating market for them are leftover women.This raised another huge range of problems for men on top of societal abuse.
Men in family.
He is the slave for his wife and children.He has a family as long he can produce and provide for them.
In an western type family he has no authority in front of the wife and children(especially if he has girls).He has no say on children education,health ,well being or correction.
When he stopped being useful or annoy his wife or his wife found another man to cheat on him he is discarded like a used rag by the women that play the role of his wife, with the help of government and family courts.He may be accused on the spot for domestic violence against his wife, against children and stripped away from his parental rights.He will be always be at the mercy of his wife and family courts to see his children in the future.
He is divorced raped.He will loose his house, his saved money, his children and he must pay alimony and child support regardless if he has a job, an income or not.Many of divorced raped men end up homeless in parks, under some bridges ,living in the car "drowned" in alcohol and drugs or dead taking their lives.
Men in society
Society is gynocentric put women well being and needs first above all other humans including children at the expense of men.The hierarchy of needs on this society is Women first and Children second.On the economic side women control the consumer market,80 % of global spending is controlled by women.Women have the last word when a family purchase is decided.Men are the support, they are the ones that pay for all this ,they are the drones.
Society uses women to control men.They control them by their balls and by their instincts by men human nature.They use men sexual drive, their compassion ,their instinct to protect to provide against them to chain men into slavery.
For more info read also the book "The Manipulated Man" by Esther Vilar
See also the Warren Farrell's ,"The Myth of Male Power".
That is the book that red pilled me.
see also:
https://www.reddit.com/mgtowbooks/
The society legitimizes women hypergamy and criminalizes men sexual interests. Women are free to sleep around care free but men can be at risk of legal consequences.
It was becoming evident in this decade with the raising of social media and men being able to communicate better and exchange notes that in relationships women in majority don't love men.They don't love men, they are in a relationship with.The relationship is the one of a parasite to its host.They don't see men as human beings only as human doings.We are tolerated as long as we produce/provide something.That is the female human nature exposed.
So taking in consideration all this abuses and problems that society dumped on us, we men decided that enough is enough and we want to take our "toys" and leave the playground.
No marriage, no cohabitation with the society slave owners - women.
These are the main MGTOW tenets regarding MGTOW men - women interactions .Marriage and cohabitation are dangerous traps for men.There is absolutely no benefit for men to be in a meaningful relationships with modern women,only risks.The risk to loose your liberty, your life and your resources.The risk vastly outweigh the benefits.We will avoid romantic relationships with women as that is the framework of our exploitation.
“Most all of nature, males assume a particular role: that of protector, provider. Females, reproduce. But what happens when this system goes too far? When the males are required to provide too many resources, too much security and the females are not even required to bear children. That’s what we’re looking at within Western civilization today.” -Howard Dare
******************************************************************************
We will make our own parallel society with a parallel culture, hidden in plain sight (like first Christians did in Roman Empire and managed to subvert and dethrone its polytheist foundation ) ,with the hope that will grow enough to subvert the principles and ideology of the current society.
We consider that the normal political activism and protesting is futile and a waste of energy and time.More than 10 years of MRA failure, to secure with political activism, men's rights , taught us that much.
We think that the solution is inside of each man.The transformation of himself to become a better man,to put himself first, his dignity,his purpose,his needs, his wants, his will, in order to say "NO"more and to shun this society and its ideology.
On each man going his own way.One man at a time.
We play the long game.
God help us succeed!
