Aerois D&D Campaign Review: Episodes 1-47 [SPOILERS]

I’m back with more High Rollers D&D Aerois content after my Three Episode Rule story for the start of the series.

Clearly, I’ve been binge watching the campaign, only ten episodes away from being fully caught up, but unfortunately, the only reason why I’m even stopping for air to write this review is because since Episode 37-38, the series has really begun to lose steam for me, and I’d like to reflect on my experience thus far and investigate if I’d like to continue or not.

Why I Stuck With Aerois

The other D&D streamed campaigns I’ve shopped around for previously were either too casual or too linear, but Aerois offered an expansive sand-box style campaign adventure along with generous yet challenging scenarios that rewarded players for quick thinking, and empowered them with free choices that were occasionally met with interesting consequences to move the story forward.

The exact moment that hooked me was actually the “Fire Bear” stunt the players tried to pull during the Bitterwind Chapter, where they encountered a pack of distracted wolves, and were planning to scare them off with an illusion. However, they deliberated for too long instead of acting, and unfortunately, this reduced the effectiveness of the plan

Secondly, Mark demonstrated how much scarier an open-air wilderness can be as opposed to a still mysterious but quite contained dungeon crawl experience, as enemy camps and scouts could show up any time, for example. The players had to think critically about time and resource management to survive, and I was surprised they all arrived to the next town in one-piece.

Rose Hall

The Rose Hall chapter impressed me once again, but in hindsight, it was also the beginning of an ever-so-slight railroading habit that would inevitably snowball into my declining interest in the series.

Here’s the first side of the double edged sword: I did enjoy that Mark was teaching the players to cover their bases, as he dropped several hints to about their NPC companions not being able to afford rooms for the inn, leaving them vulnerable by sleeping in the stables. The party’s neglect resulted in a murder and kidnapping of said NPCs.

Now here’s the part that I did not enjoy: The only reason why this murder/kidnapping was able to occur was because the Party was unfairly diverted into meeting with the head conspirator (Brookstone). They were initially leaning towards declining a meeting with him, but Mark decided to paint a solid portrait for Brookstone by having the locals suddenly claim that he was a harmless man, which influenced the party in Brookstone’s direction.

Due to this betrayal, being “Brookstoned” is now a frequent meme and paranoia for the party. It was their choice after all, and the whole ordeal did result in exciting storytelling, but I believe it was the first infringement on player agency by manipulating their pool of available evidence to skew their perception to follow an intended direction.

Kalie’s Rest

Rose Hall was just a yellow card, but The first red flag was thrown here, as the party met with the Head of the Harvest Guard, whom did not wish for them to leave without her blessing. The party was more interested in just passing by and heading to the major city of Goldthrone, but Mark had bigger things planned for Kalie’s Rest.

The stay ended up being worth it, as two of the players participated in Spellclash, a national tournament league for spellcasters, and the party also made a rival in the necromancer Guardian named Breeze.

Unfortunately though, the party overstayed their welcome.

The Players’ First Major Mistakes

Back in Rosehall, the players weren’t interested in being heroes, as they passed on some paid work that would have helped the town, and opted to explore an abandoned pre-sundering town (Dwalinden) instead to collect some quick loot. It was for a good cause though; they were trying to heal the broken leg of their NPC friend Arval.

But somehow, someway, things changed in Kalie’s Rest.

A good deed went punished when the party tried to stop a librarian from being forcibly escorted to Brightflame Abbey, a religious center that has been usurped by a racist cult, and the resulting fight left the library in flames.

The party’s morality was tested again when Breeze was going to use one of the Brightflame Abbey members in a human sacrifice to extend the life of a more pure hearted Guardian, which the party chose to intervene.

However, it was after this point that the party’s decision making ability began to degrade.

  1. They allowed the key witness to the Brightflame Abbey’s plot to purge the “foreign” citizens to leave town without first confessing to the police.
  2. They chose to infiltrate Brightflame Abbey above ground, even though there was an option to travel further underground using the same system they just used to find Breeze.
  3. They chose to infiltrate Brightflame Abbey at all.

I believe it was Lucius that first voiced his concern that the party was in over their heads trying to do anything about the militant cult in Kalie’s Rest. Kim also joked about leaving town right before they started the game on the episode for the stealth mission.

They should have left, and I suspect they would have if the campaign was not being streamed. I don’t actually want a scripted TV show, I want to see an open world adventure game, and this is one major problem I have with streamed D&D games. Then again, it was, on face value, the player’s choice after all, and it’s only my speculation that they were peer pressured into it.

Brightflame Abbey drastically changed the course of events for Aerois. Not only did Sentry die because of the party’s mistake, but it also forced Mark’s hand into showing his cards too early in regards to the plot.

Mark’s First Major Mistakes

The Brightflame Abbey infiltration was so poorly executed I really can’t blame Mark for revealing Calus Starbane, the legendary villain of Aerois that caused the sundering, as early as he had to. He claimed the scenario was at the bottom of his list, and it was still up to chance, as the party not only had to fail, but also have Valla, their NPC ally, separately succeed in not dying or being captured to execute the Starbane plotline.

It actually turned out pretty awesome, as he teleported them to another continent, which resulted in an even harder expedition through the wilderness than their first journey through the Bitterwind forest in Chapter One, as they now had to deal with violent thunderstorms and giant beasts whilst carrying not one, but later on, two dead bodies.

No, Mark’s first mistake was making the connection between Hadar (an even greater evil) and Starbane, when he revealed Starbane’s intentions to Nova in a direct dream conversation. It’s a cool idea in itself, as it’s reminiscent of Magus’ quest for power against Lavos in Chrono Trigger, but something like that should have been left to the character’s investigations, because as soon as he did that, the player’s focus would become singular now from level 6 all the way to level 20, if the story even gets that far.

Revealing the main villains this early makes me feel like I already know the ending of the story.

The Breeze subplot won’t really matter if he ever returns. Participating in Spellclash would be a sin with the balance of the universe at stake.

Even individual character development was impacted, as the party did not have time to look into Aila’s original clan ties when they were conducting research at the Gusthaven libraries. They may never return to the spooky ghost mansion they desperately escaped from many episodes ago.

As Lucius said about the events surrounding his father’s death in a conspiracy plot: “It all seems so inconsequential.”

Gusthaven

Even after the big reveal, the campaign was still recoverable. There was one last sliver of hope and innocence left in the world: “Daddy.

Lucius’ constant referencing of his father became the most recognizable meme in the early days of Aerois, so much so that viewers began taking bets on how many times the word would be mentioned in an episode, and after a long journey through the storm-ridden continent of Voxar, the party was finally ready to visit the first sky city of Gusthaven, and revive their fallen friend Quill.

Behind the DM Screen, however, the subplot was secretly killed much earlier, about the time the party got to Kalie’s Rest, as they discovered a reward for any information regarding Lucius’ well being after the Airship crash was rescinded after two weeks, which confirmed some suspicions from the other party members that Lucius father wasn’t as keen towards his son as Lucius would have us think.

Upon arriving, we discovered that Lucius father was murdered in a conspiracy. Lucius presented himself as being delusional, believing that his father and sister might still be alive, that it was a slightly botched teleportation experiment that ruined the house but preserved their lives.

I hoped he was right. I didn’t think Mark would be this cruel. We were waiting to see Lucius reunite with his father since Episode 1. Separate from that, I also think the player characters deserved a break after over a month of non-stop drama since the airship crash, and I was expecting Gusthaven (previously Goldthrone) to be that refuge.

But no. Our last relevant subplot and only interesting distraction left from the seriousness that is saving the world and stopping Starbane was ripped out of our hands. I’m not even convinced Lucius, or Chris Trott, even cared about the murder mystery anymore after that.

As soon as he got his inheritance money, he started plans for an airship to leave. Mark Hulmes (in character) was even caught off guard when Lucius said the conspiracy seemed “inconsequential”, incoherently replying that every person had some role to fill, whether big or small.

But then again, the players could have actually had a lot of fun with the whole ordeal, and this is just my speculation. I only know that I wanted something else.

Conclusion, and Moving Forward

My chances for returning to Aerois aren’t looking good at the moment. For the past few episodes I’ve been unafraid of spoilers and scrolling through the comments during the video precisely to know whether or not something exciting would happen so I could stick around or skip ahead when I start to get bored.

I just feel like the path is already written at this point. Individual character development doesn’t really matter anymore, since they are all currently sacrificing for the greater good anyway. That is the cost of being a Hero.

To delay the Hadar reveal plotline, I would have had Valla contact Nova in the dream instead of Starbane, at the very least. To delay it even further, I would have Valla close the planar gate with herself and Starbane on the other side, as a pseudo-sacrifice to buy the players more time.

Many intermediate subplots could have been introduced before Hadar. We still don’t know what exactly The Remnant, the leftover forces of Starbane’s army, or Zakira(?), Starbane’s second in command, are actually up to. Best case scenario, neither of them are currently aligned with Starbane, as his absence has left a power vacuum. Something like this would delay Starbane’s advancement, and introduce the same “lesser of two-evils” moral dilemma Mark was intending with Hadar, but on a much more manageable scale.

I don’t think there’s anything that will shake the inconsequential nature of things right now.

A part of me wants to skip ahead, because I know it is all just means to an end to become powerful enough to fight the main villains. But if I do that, the final fight won’t be as interesting because I wasn’t invested in the character growth that was needed to get there.

The difference between this and a TV series is that each episode of Aerois is going to take me three hours. 3-4 episodes of Aerois is about a season of Game of Thrones, but a lot more is forced to happen in a series like Game of Thrones because of the time constraint.

How I’m Running My Campaign

I’m really committed to the sand-box style, and I’ve developed my story with the idea that my players aren’t even the main characters.

I have built in heroes and villains, and intricate story lines for an interstellar battle of the Gods, but I intentionally have most of that running in the background, because I don’t want the players to feel obligated to take on such major quests like that if they don’t feel like they’re up to it.

There will be plenty of other opportunities for fame, fortune, and character development outside of my main end-game scenario, so if my players want to be the Heroes, the main characters, then they are truly going to have to fight for it.

Otherwise, it’s their story to tell.

I am a firm believer that the DM should set the stage and scene for the adventurers, but it’s the players that write the plot.

With great power comes great responsibility, but the Aerois characters are trying to save the world at only level six. There are no more stars in their eyes. They’re all grown up, and frankly it’s just too soon for my tastes.

Getting the airship was so freaking cool too. But I think it’s time for me to call it. T’was fun. Really fun. And I learned a lot. But I think I’ll just focus on having fun for my own games now, or potentially, not even be play much in the near future and just go back to working and producing more content for this site.

So there’s that.

Losing My Compass – Relapse, Desire and Dissatisfaction on No Fap

My No-Fap High Scores List

1st – 163 Days

2nd – 129 Days (latest)

3rd – ???

The first draft of this story was difficult to write. After a relapse, I had no real sense or conclusion on the matter.

Moments after the relapse happened, I remember saying to myself “I don’t even know who you are anymore.”, which is a very profound statement considering I started this practice in the pursuit of self-knowledge.

“I think there is very little to be learned about yourself in the pursuit of sex. After all it is just a sensual pleasure.” – 30 Days of No-Fap: Road to Self -Mastery

I suppose it would be more meaningful to flip this statement then: So, what am I learning in the pursuit of non-sex?

Sex Is Always Going To Be There

An old strategy of mine was to deliberately feed into my urges with the intent that I could increase the intensity of my motivation for other habits if I also increased my sexual urges and then focused that energy to those other habits. A specific and frequent example for this was watching porn before working out.

This is quite the crude form of sex transmutation. It would work some of the time, but generally the risks aren’t worth it, and in the end it took more time to complete the desired action anyway because of the distracting sexual build up that had to be done beforehand.

The Power of Sex

I don’t want to remove my sex drive. According to Freud’s theory of sublimation, my sexual dissatisfaction could be the source for my strong drive for achievement as a means for compensation.

“My argument is not to abandon sex forever, but to simply curb it, to fast from it, only to recognize it has no true dominion over you.”Road to Self-Mastery

The context behind that statement was derived from observing the habits of sex-controlled men, with most of their paths leading to danger; #MeToo, financial divorce rape, and even physical harm for the single men frequenting red light districts.

Well, considering all that, masturbation and sex dolls actually seem like pretty great options.

But here’s my problem: I’ve taken the Red Pill.

I’ve learned about the health benefits of semen retention and Non-ejaculatory methods for sex, and I simply can not settle for these cheaper forms of pleasure anymore. I can not go back to the way I was before.

Losing My Compass

Yes, I know; real big talk from someone who relapsed anyway.

But 129 days is still nothing to scoff at. There are men out there that fap several times a day for years on end.

But what can easily happen with longer streaks like mine is a drop in standards and a loss for the fundamentals responsible for success in the first place.

I can tell you now, in the days leading up to my relapse, I had completely forgotten about Karezza. An act like that takes time, practice, and a committed partner; three things I don’t have the mental framework for in my current monk-mode environment.

And so, my reasons for doing No-Fap slowly got further and further away.

Reorientation

“A Saiyan gets stronger after every battle.” – Prince Vegeta

This relapse doesn’t have to be taken as a loss; none of them should be, ever. Do the logical thing: detach from the shame and disappointment and learn from the experience.

#1 Don’t Feed The Beast

As stated earlier, my sex drive is already powerful enough on it’s own; it doesn’t need any extra help. Engaging with it will only allow it to overcome my current focus, and I can’t afford that sort of distraction.

(Like Saruman told the Orcs in The Fellowship of The Ring: “We have work to do!”)

#2 Delayed Gratification

This has always been an issue since the start. Sex is too powerful, and can’t be delayed through other means to later satisfy it’s end.

Obviously I want to have a moderate and responsible sex life, but I also don’t want to be in-between. If I’m going to do it, just go and do it. No more edging and teasing.

Every single part of my life deserves 100% of my attention and effort when it’s the right time for me to focus on it. So if I’ve decided I’m not going to have sex right now, then it’s not worth thinking about at all for the moment.

#3 Tracking Progress

As all this drama is going on with No-Fap, meanwhile, I’ve just made four months of my Keto/Candida diet. The awesome thing about Health & Fitness is that the gains are very observable, and while the Candida isn’t completely gone yet, I’ve at least lost some weight and other health benefits.

As someone who was already actively decreasing my masturbation frequency before I even knew about No-Fap, these “superpowers” more chronic abusers experience after they begin this practice aren’t so apparent to me.

And even if I go even further with strict Semen Retention, Debonair D recommends a six-month minimum for complete realization. That’s a really long time for a very esoteric practice with no guarantees for a possible placebo effect. And so, this leads me to my last point, wrapping it all up.

#4 An Everyday Perspective

Honestly, counting my streaks, and especially wanting to reach a certain month/day milestone is making a mountain out of this ordeal. It gets even worse when you have hit high streaks before, because the low-number days you need to build up again don’t have the same impact.

This entire recent streak, I was just looking forward to beating my high score, and everyday not having wasn’t necessarily making me more likely to achieve it, as it also made me more frustrated that I’m not where I want to be.

Too much projecting into the future made me forget what No-Fap’s purpose is supposed to be for me as an everyday experience.

I want self-mastery. I never want to be in a situation where I am compelled by some external necessity, and I’ve identified sex to be in that category at the moment.

If I just metaphorically wave to my sex drive from across the street, letting it pass me by, I can save myself so much time and money to focus on more productive and beneficial life practices. I know about my sex drive already, but I don’t really know enough about my creative drives, my relationship with food, my full opinion on money, leisure, and luxury.

Once again, sex isn’t something that has to be abandoned forever. I don’t have to be a celibate monk, and even so there are responsible and spiritual ways to incorporate it into my life, like with Karezza, for example.

But what’s clear as day to me right now is that I made some interesting choices with my life prior to MGTOW, and I think the most responsible thing to do right now is to hard freeze on everything unnecessary (deep Monk Mode) and focus on clearing up and debts and damage from the past, and forge new roads and foundations for a more successful future.

I shouldn’t be afraid of this either; I really can’t tell if my Monk Mode will last forever and I become the next Nikola Tesla (I’ve voiced this concern in FINDING THE WALL: PLATEAUED PRODUCTIVITY AND LEAVING MONK MODE).

As a separate analogy, imagine you are advised not to move during meditation. But what if a particular discomfort makes it extremely difficult to quiet the mind as the entirety of your mind becomes focused on ignoring that one uncomfortable feeling?

129 days is freaking good, but if No-Fap starts to become a chore in itself and ends up having the reverse effect of distracting me from my main objectives, I have to consider the possibility that I won’t become a No-Fap Guru, and I’m simply just a jack-of-all-trades, and call it quits when the urges do get that strong.

I’m a highly creative individual, and I know from my past experiences that indulging in PMO starts out tame at first, but overtime it will certainly escalate.

But if I could start doing No-Fap Hardmode properly this time, and reset my baseline enough so that I can actually derive some satisfaction from PMO every four months or so, that actually seems like a pretty good deal!

So, I suppose the next challenge and interesting question is: How strong is my sex drive? Will ignoring it on No-Fap actually end up backfiring?

We’ll see. More content on the way.

Destruction of Male Spaces: An Encounter With A Blue Pill Man (MGTOW)

It would have been Year 5 of the new family Christmas tradition I started to make a group trip to the theaters, specifically to catch the new Star Wars’ films. However, MGTOW Monk Mode makes you less tethered to the outside world. Holidays and even your own birthday begin to lose their significance, and adding to the fact that J.J. Abrams was returning for The Rise of Skywalker, I decided to give up my responsibility of securing the tickets this year.

Thus, this story will probably seem over-dramatic, but keep in mind that I was also looking for any good excuse to skip out on a movie I no longer had enthusiasm to see.

So, I had one simple rule to guarantee my attendance: this would be a family-exclusive event, and anyone born without our last name can not be invited.

Now, if it was up to me, I would have just invited only the single men in my family, but since it was my Uncle’s responsibility now, he decided to invite my brother and his son, so he could also initiate my young nephew into the Sci-Fi Fantasy genre the same way we were.

While we were going over the plans for the trip with my married brother, his first concern was that he had to tell his wife. Initially, I thought he was asking for permission, which I thought was odd because there should be no objection to him spending quality father-and-son time, and it’s a family event.

But no, it was far worse than that. He just couldn’t bear spending any time just with his blood-family alone and had to invite her.

The reason why I made the rule up in advance was because he showed similar behavior during the last outing. Not only was he about to flake on us, but when he saw there were still seats available at the theater when we arrived, he frantically scrambled to invite his girlfriend, and his best friend who would also bring his girlfriend.

It’s a family event. Why is he trying to have this random double date on the side?

My Uncle’s only objection was that my brother would have to pay for his wife’s ticket, but I snapped and said if she goes, she can just take my ticket because I no longer want to go.

What happened next was pure gold.

So, in my brother’s puny Blue Pill brain, he thought it was a trump card to bring up that our grandfather is proud that he has extended the family name twice by having a son and a wife.

I responded, “First off, she could divorce you and change her name, and second, why are you bringing up the family bloodline just for one Saturday afternoon? Really? You are a lost boy.

Maybe you think this whole story is unnecessarily dramatic, but I don’t see it that way. My relationship with my brother has already been steadily deteriorating, and I really wanted this movie outing to be a last ditch effort to reignite the old bonds and camaraderie between us.

But he doesn’t want that. We’re not cool enough to hang out with anymore, I guess. Rules and tradition don’t matter; we have to use “diplomacy”, my uncle said.

Fuck that though. Not standing your ground and making concessions is exactly how stupidity like the infiltration and decline of the Boy Scouts happens.

The Blue Pill man is never going to be in your corner, doesn’t even matter if you’re family.

Blood may be thicker than water, but it’s not thicker than pussy juice, that’s for sure.

After this experience, there is no doubt that all future associations with blue-pill men will have to be kept to an absolute minimum. There’s no guarantees that they will uphold whatever traditions, customs, and bonds you’ve built with them, as they will gladly sacrifice them for the validation of a woman.

It’s also why I’ve chosen to brand myself MGTOW and not just Moon Base, because those are the only men I can truly trust to have my back these days. Even single men like my Uncle (who appears to be MGTOW on the outside), still don’t make the cut because they don’t have the internal knowledge of female nature and the weakness of their fellow men.

I’ll still enjoy the company of my family, but I’ll just say that the world is a very big place. I want unanimous trust, loyalty, and brotherhood. If I can’t have that, I have no problem walking this path alone, and going my own way.

How I Went MGTOW in High School Because of #MeToo

Technically, this happened sometime around 2008, so it was before #MeToo was a part of the common tongue, but the principle still applies.

This should be around the start of 10th Grade, so timeline wise, we’re after the Only Dating For Status story.

Maybe the Full Moon was out early that day, but a few of the boys in my class were particularly rabid for sexual contact, and the girls they were entertaining were receptive to it, as best as they could be without giving themselves away.

This happened over ten years ago, so I’m not sure if the girls instigated or reciprocated at all, but what happens next is why my memory is skewed against the boys.

My teacher (female) decided to report the boys for sexual harassment.

I will agree that the behavior was certainly disruptive, but the reporting was controversial because the girls did not consent to have it sent on their behalf, and because of this, I don’t believe the boys were left with any serious consequences.

Nevertheless, even though I was only an observer to this party, the whole ordeal affected my behavior moving forward.

I was already a reserved and introverted kid anyway, but now I felt compelled to actively suppress my sexuality, knowing that I could be reported by a third party for showing too much overt sexual interest, even if the girl receiving this attention wasn’t opposed to it.

I won’t say this was the exact reason I went “MGTOW” though, because later that year I joined an academic program that completely ate up all my time, and that naturally led me to Monk Moding through high school.

The fruits of my efforts were apparent during my senior year: Going Monk Mode got me the highest grades in my class. But in return, my MGTOW movements trying to avoid getting #MeToo’d hurt my social status.

It was actually an administrator (female) that suspected I was gay because all of my other friends spent a lot of time messing around with the girls while I avoided that behavior.

I just took a pause right now after writing that, to really let the dysfunctional nature behind her comments sink in, and remembering how confused I was as a kid about the appropriate way to interact with females, and how much more confusing it must be for the modern teenager actually growing up in the #MeToo era.

Reflection

I don’t regret missing out on the action in High School. I’m quite proud of what I was able to accomplish when I fully committed to my studies and reduced my social life. And I was clearly ahead of my time if we compare to the dating climate now, so that gives me confidence that I would have always gone MGTOW, no matter what parallel paths I would have taken.

It’s reminiscent of a speech Rick Grimes gave in The Walking Dead, when he explained his survival experience and law-man background allows him to see threats before they happen.

But I’m not Superman. I will at least admit that I did miss out on some fun in middle school, and that’s 100% to blame on my own awkwardness back then, and I may have been far to interested in video-games anyway.

My next school story will be a compilation of all the tiny red pill moments that clued me in on female nature along the way. Will be fun.

Functional Nihilism and Creative Hedonism

If you’ve read an earlier article of mine, The Nature of Reality and The Meaning of Life, you would know my core philosophy lies in nihilism, but I suppose it’s a bit unfair to drop a black pill like that without at least explaining how to navigate this new realm with out a floor beneath your feet and no roof over your head.

Functional Nihilism

I’ve chosen this name because the typical nihilist, I suppose, may present some lethargic or pessimistic qualities, giving the philosophical school a bad rep, hence, being called the dysfunctional ones.

The Nihilist half of my concept would be the full recognition that all efforts from myself, humanity, and nature itself are inherently meaningless and purposeless in the macro perspective, but the Functional aspect is simply not applying anymore unnecessary resistance to the fact that Nature has willed my existence to be.

Although it is our Reason that separates us from the more instinctual animals, interestingly, we don’t always use this Reason to our benefit, and we very often are the victims of our own consciousness. We assume animals operate on a lower state of Being, but that would at least save them from ever having to contemplate suicide, for example.

This is why I am tinkering with a model of Functional Nihilism, because I don’t want my philosophy to conflict with nature.

Creative Hedonism

With humanity not being tethered to an all-encompassing purpose, many take the stroke of luck that is existence as an all-out pass for a life of hedonism. I’m personally not opposed to this, argumentatively. As a nihilist, the monk and the prostitute are the same to me. The only difference between me and them is that I’m not particularly good at gambling. The monk gambles a life of material and physical pleasure for a non-guaranteed spiritual gain, and the promiscuous or other over-indulgent person gambles their own health for frequent physical pleasure.

However, I still am pursuing pleasure, but it is through creativity. Consider the quote, “I think, therefore I am.” Well, as a Creative Hedonist, my motto is “I was created, therefore I create.” I stretch this a bit, because materially this can be used as a reasoning for me to continue to populate the species. No, I mean I was created and create on metaphysical terms.

I write. I design. I create art. That’s what I’m talking about.

A life full of the creative pursuit is still Hedonism because the completion of my works provides no guarantee that I’ll ever step off of the hedonic treadmill, especially since my interests are so varied. Even if I struck gold on my first novel like Harper Lee, I would most likely pool my earnings to adapt it into a graphic novel, or start developing video-games.

Another reason why I consider my perspective on creativity to be Hedonism is because, well, the nihilism. I’m not banking on my artistic efforts to leave a great legacy. Yes, we remember Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo now, but we’re a relatively young species; I think even Jesus and Buddha will be forgotten one day, especially if we manage to outrun the sun in this universe.

The best thing I could hope for is that I do reach a point of satisfaction that I truly can create no more, similar to Quentin Tarantino’s recent comments that he’ll step away from the director’s seat after his 9th or 10th movie (He’s on #9 already, by the way).

But then again, you never know when he’ll come out of retirement (ahem, Hayao Miyaziki).

Conclusion

All in all, I think Creative Hedonism is the most productive of the other typical pleasure-inducing pursuits, especially since most of them involve direct consumption and are dependent on external sources.

It gives me a purpose, to strive for personal satisfaction, as opposed to fulfilling some unreasonable and egotistical grand role for humanity or the spiritual realm; a concept thankfully crushed by my functional nihilism.

What are your thoughts on hedonism and nihilism? Let me know in the comments.

Learning How To DM I – Recognizing Player Intent

I promise, I’m going to go back to our regularly scheduled MGTOW & Philosophy programming soon, but D&D is still dominating my creative focus, so I’m making back-to-back content for it.

If you don’t know what the hell these acronyms are, D&D = the tabletop fantasy RPG game Dungeons & Dragons, and a DM is the Dungeon Master, the player responsible for the overall narrative, rules, and environment of the game.

The DM provides a structure, but it is the players that write the plot.

The style of DMing I want to perfect is a sandbox-style, where I have fleshed out enough details for a world expansive enough to allows my players to go anywhere and do anything. I want to make it a habit to never say “no” to them, and instead come up with creative compromises, or make them roll for it if we truly disagree.

I don’t think it will be fun for them if I am inflexible, and I also think I can become a better creative if I subject myself to more opportunities for improvisation.

Session Zero

A “Session Zero” is a pre-campaign phase where the players and DM decide some core details about the upcoming campaign, especially collaborative character creation, where players can create synergy or sensibility for their characters to adventure together.

Unfortunately, that was the only focus I had for my Session 0, since I was using a published adventure. Because I did not suss out my player’s intentions beforehand, there was a huge conflict during the combat, as one of my player’s decided to be a pacifist! Against a Manticore, no less!

Since then, I’ve begun issuing pre-campaign surveys to get a feel for what character roles my players want, as well as the themes and influences I can employ for the campaign.

I’ve issued this survey: https://rpgbot.net/general/gamemasters/pregamesurvery/

And I’ve also used this link as a supplement, especially the final section: https://www.nonfictiongaming.com/2017/05/16/questions-dm-ask-players-starting-dd-campaign/

During the Session

I just ran my second session last night. As I stated earlier, I want to learn how to facilitate player agency as much as possible, but that can only go so far. “Not every rock has gold underneath it”, as I’ve once heard. I may not have the mental resources to always have something interesting for the player to see when they want to inspect a room or area.

For instance, my player last night wanted to investigate a beach that he washed up on, and I simply replied “you find nothing.”

However, because of the degree of freedom I encouraged for him during a revised Session Zero, he suggested that he found an item that may be of interest to an NPC he recently met, and I thought that was a cool idea, so I let him have it.

Instead of saying, “you find nothing” I could ask the player, “what are you looking for?”, and this sort of questioning engages both of us in content generation, as opposed to me just passing down a one-sided judgement on the scenario.

Recognizing player intent in this way increases participation and interest in the game, and takes some pressure off of me as the DM. In retrospect, saying “you find nothing” makes me feel inadequate that I did not have something planned, but granting the player more responsibility of what they want to do in the world, and then building around it, makes me feel less stressed about preparing for every little detail about what they should be able to see.

Thoughts? Do you play D&D and have advice for me as a new DM? Let me know in the comments.

Aerois, High Rollers D&D Campaign (Three Episode Rule)

I’m so into Dungeons and Dragons right now that I nearly announced going on hiatus so I can focus on world building and DMing for my campaign.

But, I’ve developed a knack for writing about whatever I’m doing, thus I will write about D&D.

The Beginning

Yes, I did attend a university that had an exceptional concentration of nerds, but it seemed doubly so for my floor of the dorm. Weekend nights were spent all-nighting Soulcalibur in the lounge, and occasionally, I was fortunate enough to witness a few sessions of D&D.

I was so intrigued that even as a spectator I blurted out some helpful advice to one of the players in my excitement, but the DM vetoed it as I was outsider.

Another time, one of the player characters got captured and separated from the group which led to the DM running a solo campaign for him to bust out of the holding facility. Even if he got out, he was so far away from the group, I had no idea how he would catch up to them.

That’s when I knew I was hooked.

Eight years later, I would roll my first D20.

Aerois

Aerois is the name of the campaign and world designed by High Rollers DM Mark Hulmes.

I was initially drawn to the podcast because I’m a world-builder and sandbox-style DM myself, and was intrigued by the home-brewed classes and races, as well as the inclusion of future technology and magic juxtaposed to a magical but middle-aged world.

The Critical Role livestream from Geek and Sundry does set a ridiculously high bar as the entire adventuring group are all veteran voice actors supported by equally impressive production quality with music and battle map/figurine sets.

However, the narrative of their campaign is far too focused on the everyday streams of consciousness of the adventuring group, whereas in Aerois, there is always a looming and mysterious narrative above the players, literally so as the world is split between the lower lands and the sky cities above.

Review

I initially made the mistake of skipping most of the introductory videos about Aerois and its characters, and so I was bored when the campaign began with the players immediately rolling initiative.

In fact, I actually SKIPPED the combat so I could get some backstory on who these characters are and why they are together. A few days later, I realized my mistake and gave the campaign another shot, watching all the introductions, and restarting the episode properly.

Mark really is a sand-box style DM. Like, crash land out of a plane and figure out what to do next sort of sandbox.

He’s also quite innovative, as he has re-balanced 5e to include an injury-table system that introduces a lingering consequence for players hitting 0 HP, as opposed to the non-consequential healing mechanics in traditional play.

Lastly, my favorite thing about the stream is how punishing (but fair) Mark can be on his cast. Specifically, half of the party came up with a great diversion tactic, but the other half wanted to deliberate more, which led to the plan’s eventual employment having only half of it’s effectiveness.

I don’t want to spend time rating all of the other player’s performances, but I’ll just say Chris Trott’s flamboyant High-Elf Daddy’s boy Lucius is definitely the most fun character to watch, and he even called it out ahead of time himself at Day 1.

The cast of characters is quite diverse, and Mark will also unpack more of Aerois’ mysteries through the backstories and goals of some of the characters.

Three episodes in, the Campaign is edge-of-your-seat action and suspense, but has surprisingly refreshing humor despite the desperate situation of the player characters!

It’s a really great start to a campaign, as I have no idea where it’s headed next, and if all of the characters make it out of their current situation alive, I myself will join them in the greatest sigh of relief that could even be heard through the Astral Plane.

Dissolving The Ego: Ben Greenfield/Anti-Psychedelic Response

“Beware of unearned wisdom.” – Carl Jung

Unearned wisdom is exactly what I consider any delusions of enlightenment from drug use to be.

Plant medicine” advocates such as Joe Rogan, Graham Hancock, and Ben Greenfield have gone so far to encourage even the harder hallucinogens, specifically ones that contain DMT or mescaline chemical compounds.

Hancock has even suggested politicians shouldn’t be elected unless they have experienced the induced states from these drugs. (Source: somewhere in this 2hr45m podcast, a great watch in its entirety though!)

But here’s my question: If these powerful drugs truly have the power to grant enlightenment, why is it necessary to continuously experiment with repeated uses?

Greenfield himself has interesting habits with plant medicine, as he makes regular tri-monthly trips with his wife, and will introduce his children to it as a rite-of-passage, which he mentions in the podcast below (sorry, I watched it some time ago, don’t have the timestamps, but it’s a really great and humorous episode! I recommend the whole thing.)

All of this in order to “dissolve the ego,” he claims.

However, only a few moments later did Ben reveal that he has too much of an ego to adopt a more communal/free-love lifestyle some users adopt after experiencing the drug, as he would prefer to have more control over his family to further the “Greenfield legacy.”

Huh? Legacy? Why would anyone with a “dissolved ego” care about legacy?

Here is precisely why chemically induced enlightenment is dubbed “unearned wisdom.”

Advertisements

Now, I’m sure the native populations that used these drugs also did them quite often, (but they didn’t have the internet, so I won’t blame them), but they also built a culture that supported the intentions behind the drug.

When their ego was dissolved through the psychedelic experience, they returned to a collectivist society where last names didn’t exist or matter, children were raised by the village, and men and women both had multiple spouses.

There was no concern for an individual legacy.

In the same way that you are a multi-cellular organism that has combined into one singular entity that is your human body, each member of these indigenous tribes were just individual cells that sacrificed their ego for the good of the collective.

Taking DMT and feeling connected to the world and all of humanity is great and all, but if only a few days or hours later you are browsing Instagram at the airport on the way back home, this is not the best way to integrate this new enlightened persona you’ve temporarily adopted after using these drugs.

If I wanted a medicine to bring me enlightenment, I would want it to be a one-shot cure, and not a prescription drug.

5 Tips for Starting and Surviving No Fap [100 Days Update]

I realized my previous No-Fap updates might have been too advanced, so I have reflected on these past 100 days to offer some useful advice for the No-Fap newbies out there, and a new perspective for current practitioners to reach new heights.

Tip #1: The Zenkai Boost

I’ve used this analogy before, but a lot of the improvements observed during No-Fap can be likened to the same process Saiyans undergo in Dragon Ball Z, in which their power level dramatically increases after they recover from near-fatal injuries.

I specifically identified the “Zenkai Boost” effect after noticing the gaps in frequency for my nocturnal emissions, as the longer I practiced No-Fap, the further away each one occurred from the last.

In the event that you do experience failure on your No-Fap journey, keep in mind that every failure is still valuable experience.

If you are constantly evaluating your progress along the way, you can identify what your triggers are so that you can better avoid them in the next round.

No-Fap is also not a completely mental exercise; you are also dragging along a very incessant body that needs realignment and repair.

#2: Count the Consecutive AND Cumulative Days on No-Fap

Acknowledging our streak counts is by far the most easily recognized habit within the No-Fap community. However, the way it is commonly approached can be harmful to the new practitioner.

Great comment by this guy on a very comedic NoFapper vs. Coomer video.

Those that reject No-Fap are always on day 0, so even though you may fail repeatedly to create a decent streak, you are at least making an effort, and every single moment of those efforts should be recognized.

Start counting your days from the day you decided you wanted to change, because there are so many out there that actively reject to change this habit.

It’s unfair to say that my “Day 0” after hitting 163 days (my high score) is the same “Day 0” as another man who has never made it past 3 days.

All of your experience matters. Count it all.

If you do it this way, even if you fail, you are still on the path and always growing.

#3: Slowly Deprogram (Don’t Go Cold Turkey)

It has never been enjoyable, nor strategically successful, to sternly stamp my foot down and refuse to repeat a certain behavior after previously over-indulging in it.

This especially happens with food, as I used to respond to relapses in my dieting habits with a full day of fasting (sometimes even dry fasting) either to punish myself or hard reset my neural pathways.

It’s absolutely miserable, as it doesn’t make me feel accomplished while doing it, and failing to abide by my own punishment just confirms that I have no control of myself.

Yes, as No-Fappers, we are addicted to porn, but I believe it’s wiser to slowly limit my consumption of it over a certain period of time, and eventually get bored of it (since there’s no orgasm release), as opposed to constantly fighting and struggling against my curiosity.

In fact, new No-Fappers should probably shoot for building up on smaller streaks in the beginning rather than trying to hit a 30 day or 90 day reboot on their first try.

It seems to be the healthiest way to achieve lasting results. With porn, I think it’s better to become desensitized, through boredom and sound logic, rather than overly sensitive, through strict avoidance and repression.

#4 The Body Needs Discipline (This Stops Wet Dreams)

Isaac from Castlevania, meditating before his self-flagellation exercise

“The Body is sick. It must be purged. It must be focused. This is Holy work.” – Isaac from Castlevania (Netflix)

There are two schools of practice in No-Fap, and the divergence starts around the argument of whether or not a nocturnal emission affects your streak. Believing that it does is a likely path towards practicing full-on semen retention, but either way, a wet dream is not a fun event to go through.

Once again, there are two theories behind why it occurs in the first place.

The first theory is that your body does not yet have the mechanics for retention, neither the muscles nor the neuronal pathways, as it is adjusted to frequent ejaculation, so your body will attempt to expel semen when it is most vulnerable.

I remember a particular night after working out, I decided to skip my cold shower and go for a hot one before bed. I went to bed with a very strong fear that I was going to release at night during a dream, and not more than four hours later, I was disturbed by wildly sexual dreams, confirming my suspicion.

However, over time, my control of these dreams increased. At first, the ejaculations were almost instant, with little or no penetration at all. But as time went on, I was able to force them back, and eventually, not ejaculate at all during dream sex.

Which brings me to the second theory: A weak pelvic floor.

Debonair D has claimed that he has never experienced a wet dream, and he proposes that his natural defense is derived from his early adoption of frequent and heavy exercise, especially lower body workouts which relieve him of tension and pressure in the pelvic area, whereas other men who don’t exercise build up and unfortunately release this tension at night.

I also like to consider Yin/Yang and thermodynamic entropy as well. Having wet dreams is a symptom of the body having too much external heat (Yang energy). This is why I believe I released after my hot shower.

Therefore, incorporating more Yin practices (like meditation and cold showers) will invert the body’s heat and retain it. Making yourself colder will force the body to absorb the heat around you, as entropy is always attempting to achieve temperature uniformity.

#5 Constantly Ask Questions

“A question opens the mind. A statement closes the mind” – Robert Kiyosaki

The last piece of advice is a call back to an earlier article of mine, Two Questions To End Old Habits And Re-Organize Your Life

Structuring your life around bold statements does not seem to be a sustainable practice, and is probably why most New Year’s Resolutions fail after the first two months, or even sooner.

Although I have committed myself to one year of No-Fap and Keto diet training, I have not stated “I will do this for one year”, I have simply asked myself “What will happen if I do this for one year?”

We don’t know the future and we aren’t very good at even predicting our own behavior, so it’s important to keep our mindsets open and constantly gauge ourselves during our search for self-knowledge and wisdom.

If the urge to watch porn again comes up, you don’t have to be so adamantly against it, just simply ask a few questions.

What is the end goal of watching porn? It will most likely result in masturbation.

How does watching porn develop my character? I think it just makes me a person that watches porn.

What will I learn about myself? This one hurts. I don’t know! Is what I watch what I’m actually attracted to, or am I being programmed or manipulated into certain categories? However, I don’t think I’ll find the answer by watching more porn.

By asking questions, you make a graceful arrival to the logical conclusion, as opposed to the constant resistance of a definitive statement. It’s also a more mindful practice that introduces objective introspection rather than the ego investment that occurs through making declarations and promises to uphold or abstain from certain behaviors.

Don’t ever be afraid to not have an answer for your questions either. There is nothing wrong with an unsolved or open-ended question, as I believe just having the ability to ask it is enough proof of progress and demonstration of logic, and accepting the empty space is more likely to allow you to live in the present moment than believing every action needs to be explained.

“The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.” – Socrates

Celebrating 10 Videos, 25 Articles – Responding to Comments!

I appreciate every follow and view count I receive on my content, but as I said in my previous Personal Milestone Goals article, I can’t rely on numbers like that to gauge my success, fore those numbers are mostly out of my control.

The numbers I do control, however, are the amount of videos and articles I publish, and so I am celebrating making 10 videos and 25 articles!

If you haven’t seen my videos yet, check me out on BitChute and YouTube.

I’ve also been fortunate to receive some comments on my work, so I am shouting out my first viewers and readers, as well as offering bonus commentary on the source material.

Comments for KETO OMAD NOFAP MGTOW MONK MODE

Ahh. My first video, recorded while pacing back and forth in my room.

Under The Moon by Chad Marco is definitely one of my favorite tracks, and it fits the lunar theme of my channel as well. It is very likely to be a recurring outro theme, but I enjoy mixing things up as of late.

I was psyched about this comment because this guy double backed to this video after commenting on a different one to see what I was about.

Unfortunately, it was clear that he didn’t really watch my video, he just saw all the labels and acronyms I had in my title and he jumped on his soap box.

I still appreciate the comment, but his whole take-down was quite surface level as health is not only about weight loss, No Fap is not just about porn, and MGTOW is not a coping mechanism.

I can assure you that men who just went through a divorce are not seeking to self improve to get wrecked by another woman again.

I do agree with him on the Black Pill though, but not on dating & relationships! I’m a MGTOW Monk, and all my self improvement is not to get a woman, but to get out of the country, because my Black Pill is that America’s in too much debt and is going to hell.

Thanks George EX

Man. This was a boost. It’s a trip to be so young and be told you have wisdom!

Thanks Bleakunending

80/20 Rule in Dating – Comments

The video was made only two months ago, but with all the new experience and refining I’ve done to my style, it feels so much longer than that! It’s so cute to see my early style once again. I even sounded more shy on the mic.

To Quxantipe:

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift” – Albert Einstein

To Cj:

The only law that’s stopping it is you can only have one legal spouse, and that’s why it’s called “polyamory” and not “polygamy”, because the latter denotes marriage while the former denotes love.

Thanks guys.

Great comment honestly, but once again, Black Pill guys don’t watch your content and just speak prematurely. I did concede that the 80/20 rule is likely in effect for online dating, but the point of the video was that online dating wasn’t real life. Of course women can follow the 80/20 rule online, in the same way I can troll you online. It’s online.

Thanks John Milius

Probably my favorite comment of the thread, specifically because of the reply; Had to school the old man! There’s a lot of women out there, and they all have different schemes.

The last and 2nd favorite comment for this video.

I used to preach to Incel guys to just get escorts as well. TFM always says if you have $200 in your pocket, you’re not an Incel. I love that line.

But I’m not about that life anymore, as I’m currently hording my resources for a US escape plan. I also need more than an hour for sex, so the hobby would get too expensive! 😜

Thanks moe raff

I got my first groupie and my first scammer.

Thanks guys

And here’s my first BitChute comment, on Only Dating For Status!

I don’t think things are this bad, but they certainly can be, especially on college campuses. But being able to afford an attorney just seems like really sound advice. I don’t see why I should ignore it. Okay, I won’t date!

See, I was right!

Thanks Luke

And here is the final thread of the day. As you can see, I was banned for making this comment. I was actually agreeing with him about most MGTOW being Tradcons, but since he auto-hates MGTOW, he had to find a way to disagree with me. Here’s his response:

For someone who is “pro-male”, oddly he doesn’t realize that the big picture of this “idea of the past” means “when men were in power.” We live in a matriarchy now. How is that not a decline?

Mastering the decline means being a step ahead of the system instead of sinking with it. Adapting would mean finding new ways to still perform the same task, but I want a new way of life entirely.

We used to be a collectivist society with extended families being self-sufficient and not needing much of the government. Now we are an individualist society with widespread government dependence and intrusion.

Going back to the past would mean trying to use the old units of society (family). It’s time to embrace individualism (master the decline) and, I agree, take back power through collective action.

MGTOW is for men though, and hating it is anti-male. So, good luck dude.


Alright! That’s it for the comments. Very glad to be able to do this now, as one day there will be too many for me to keep up with!
