DeM0nFiRe: Jump Start was another similar series I played as a kid
Snowcookies: I remember getting stuck on one of the jump start games
Solipsody: Anybody here ever find a good solution for hooking up a PS2 to HDMI?
DeM0nFiRe: Oh the game I got stuck on as a kid was Juliard's Music Adventure
DeM0nFiRe: Kind of want to try it and play it again
DeM0nFiRe: @Solipsody I have something that works ok, it was like a cheap thing from amazon that plugs into USb port for power
DeM0nFiRe: Idk if we are allowed to post links
Juliamon: Go for it
DeM0nFiRe: I didn't do any like super detailed tests or anything but it has seemed fine when playing
eric_christian_berg: !findquote moneyball
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
Solipsody: @DeM0nFiRe Well, it looks better reviewed than most of the other stuff I've been looking at...
wildpeaks: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Talking Simulator (Cameron and Cori take a deeper look at the world of video games. Game: Raji: An Ancient Epic) at Tue 05:00 PM PDT (7m from now).
DeM0nFiRe: the only "issue" I had with it wasn't really an issue, I just had to change the color mode I think it was. Initially everthing on the screen was green tinted
DeM0nFiRe: But I didn't like test it for input latency or anything other than just playing it and didnt notice a problem. And it's still just an upscaler so the image quality won't really be any better than normal
Solipsody: I just want to be able to hook it up to my projector without running extra cables...
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah probably should be good for that. And it's nice that it takes power from the USB port on the console so you don't need another power source

thrythlind: @possummtg tutorial

possummtg: @thrythlind Makes sense!
Invitare: there was some minor controversy about a Symmetra skin several years ago

SketchyDetails: I hear a Shivam!
Cepsys: cool, a guest Shivam
SydPreviouslyHeadache: mechanically i almost tried Smite early on in it's existance, and then i found out how they did it and gave it a hard pass
RandomTrivia: And within the setting of this gorgeous and detailed environment, there is a classic tale of a "normal" person doing extraordinary things
thrythlind: Samudra, one of the mods on the Scion 2e discord, is often giving stories about the Deva, and he is an amazing storyteller....I especially like the story about the polite killer disc chasing around some jerk sage and all the people he goes to for shelter saying "And you cursed Lakshmi for correcting your grammar that one time."
Agl0vale: there have been a lot of floral and lotus symbols, do they have a cultural significance/impact?

control_rig: Stab 'em in the TAINT!
BrowneePoints: That's a very, very good point Shivam
kumatsu: #JustDemonThings
thrythlind: unlike, say, David Cage with Becoming Human?
control_rig: Coooooori
BrowneePoints: Ah, okay was gonna ask if they were Rakshasa
RealGamerCow: oops woops
InkyGhoast: cori liquid swordsing again
Dmc3628: every right to soapbox that
JqlGirl: At least they didn't put them on Kaladesh
KV1NN4: yuuuup....
BTC1220: Lay it on 'em Shivam!
spiltdownman: The Rakshasa in MTG are in the china themed plane not the india themed one?
thrythlind: I have the same reaction to the gorgons being a big stone bull in D&D
thrythlind: it's annoying
Basic_Human_Decency: wow sure are gatekeeping those demons Kappa
KV1NN4: i was so confused when i first encountered the DnD ones
Dmc3628: grab the soapbox?
BrowneePoints: so Bakasura, Ravana and Kumbakharna are all Rakshasa correct?
Fu4ow: similar to the anachronistic idea of Wendigos
JqlGirl: Let's not forget, D&D had a supplement called "Oriental Adventures"
Biomonkey01: You mean a game made in the seventies by a bunch of shut in white nerds is not historically or culturally accurate
TehAmelie: just wait till you hear about where they got lich phylacteries from
e_bloc: Corgo500 does Shivam have a podcast? because I would listen to this podcast.
spiltdownman: that little ceramics grinding noise is so satisfying
Invitare: those aren't cat-headed demons. Those are just cat people. What was Paul's Dragon's Orders character? Was it one of these?
JqlGirl: @e_bloc a MtG one, yes. It's called Casual Magic
e_bloc: ty @JqlGirl
call_me_Aras: How does the art style in these mandalas reflect art styles in India?
SydPreviouslyHeadache: Tabaxi?
Hexy_Lexy234: hey @JqlGirl guess what? i love you, friend! <3
Invitare: oh yeah, Tabaxi
Invitare: why does DnD have two cat people species??
thrythlind: cheer300 I absolutely adored this game when I played it...glad to see it here....(though I got myself killed a lot trying to do cool things)
JqlGirl: @Hexy_Lexy234 You too friendo!
noSmokeFire: @e_bloc he also guested on Tap Tap Concede to talk about the cultural influences of Kaladesh
cotillion1850: in fairness WOTC is kinda locked into that as DnD was later aquired and so having consistent representations across all their properties makes sense, should they update those depictions to be more inclusive and representatives heck yes
randomino5: If anyone wants to see some real freaky deaky shit, watch the Ramanand Sagar Ramayan series.
e_bloc: @noSmokeFire wow, I can't believe I missed that. I _loved_ him on the edh stream not too long ago

call_me_Aras: Isn't Jacob in Vancouver?
kumatsu: Shivam for Road Quest 2!
RealGamerCow: I am glad the common LRR guests are who they are

virre_: Shivam, maybe not your area but can you say anything on the music used (instruments etc)?
CleeKru: Oh Uno is probably the one non Canadian with the most Lrr streams
call_me_Aras: Ya I found a lot of the "cool" moves in this game to be kind of hard to use.
control_rig: Ancient Nerds, yes
Lord_Hosk: The drifting tutorial took me probably 30-45 minutes to complete.
thrythlind: Some of the demons seem like they're pretty cool people.
control_rig: Soooo... ancient Nerds

cuttlefishman: Is this Shivam?
thrythlind: have you looked at Scion 2e? Shivam?
cuttlefishman: Who's the co-commentatr?
Dmc3628: sure is Cuttlefish
cuttlefishman: Thought I recognized the voice
BrowneePoints: Ah, so it's a lot like Chinese Demons where they can be anything from a wicked human to beings like Sun Wukong or Bajie?
Agl0vale: are demons always evil/bad in hindu culture?
judgementkazzy: "non human pig thing" as a kind of evil demon seems common in asian myth (at least, from my armchair anthropological experience) , I wonder if it comes from some deeper root
call_me_Aras: I like that Durga refers to Raji as if she was her child. The use of "Our Raji" "Our child" also comes across as really caring. As if she is an aunt or grandma It gives me a sense of Gods that are caring that I haven't seen a lot before.
Loonatic93: Shivam, sir. Do you have a twitch channel or some other platform where you stream?
noSmokeFire: @thrythlind I was going to say, I'd definitely watch Shivam playing any kind of mythological RPG
djalternative: demons in hindu culture are like superman's powers pre-crisis
thrythlind: yeah, that happened with Oni and "Asian dragons" too
leebenningfield: oh I just tuned in. Hi Shivam!
Dmc3628: I have actually wanted someone knowledgable in this field to explain all the ticks of this game
cuttlefishman: This music is a banger
thrythlind: @noSmokeFire one of the mods in the Scion 2e Discord is a practicing worshipper of Kali
noSmokeFire: neat
CleeKru: would spirits be a better translation?
thrythlind: he is a a GREAT storyteller
virre_: I just today read about the Aesir-Asura connection which is interesting
Basic_Human_Decency: like obeying the status quo?

e_bloc: lewd but ok
thrythlind: the whole Adversary and obsession with angels and demons in Christianity is a thing I'm always saddened about because it's not really central to the religion and you go back older demons aren't necessarily it's just very frustrating
asthanius: This is the weirdest Rube Goldberg machine
BrindleBoar: no one tell Adam
thrythlind: it's like a poison and I hate to see it spilled out to other cultures
Earthenone: !advice
LRRbot: Try twiddling the thing.
thrythlind: Vishnu is so tricksy
Dandinstorm12: What up chat
randomino5: Is this what happens when you have a mostly oral storytelling tradition for like 6000 years
JqlGirl: Whoops. What a shame.
call_me_Aras: Vishnu's cunning plan: Hold up, we're lining up!
spiltdownman: Sounds like a pretty justified reason for demons to be pissed off
gawag_: off topic but Shivam just listened to your podcast with Wheeler, was super interesting. now I'm thinking about aggro in non-monoW
judgementkazzy: india says trans right
thrythlind: Somewhere, I have some screencaps of some of Samudra's stories
BrowneePoints: So I guess for an example of declination, Ravana was so devout he was blessed by Shiva and Parvati, but he's classified as a "demon" because he was also a ruthless Tyrant?
cuttlefishman: How are those braziers only burning in one place?
Hexy_Lexy234: hey Shivam, i would totally listen to a podcast about hinduism if you ever made one
asthanius: "I am no man"
ContingentCat: loophole! women!
RandomTrivia: Ah, classic!
GertrudePerkins: "You forgot about women, so you are going to DIE" is a powerful sentence
call_me_Aras: I like how the murals highlight different parts of the mural to help you understand what is being talked about. It's an elegant way to tell the stories.
RandomTrivia: Shivam, can you stop being interesting for, like, a minute
RandomTrivia: I have to pee
e_bloc: lrrWOW
InkyGhoast: we can agree it was a big cat
cuttlefishman: Is it a cool rooster at least?
Dandinstorm12: A....Rooster eh
silenceaux: Is that just related to the availability of tigers / lions in the region?
thrythlind: the Scion 2e write-up of one of the Deva mentions all the various origins of the goddess and answers the question of which is true by basically saying "yes"
e_bloc: and that is how they made Balder's Gate 3
Loonatic93: Shivam, do you have a Streaming Channel?
cuttlefishman: Wish they would speak a bit louder though
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Sup brow, how's it going?
BrowneePoints: Is there a Deva lightning is usually associated with?
Dandinstorm12: Shivam "I have a job" Bhatt
Basic_Human_Decency: noodle
cuttlefishman: The Studio is out of Pune
RandomTrivia: That's true of any country with regional dialects
RandomTrivia: I'm sure there's a Canadian equivalent
thrythlind: yeah, this guy killed me so much....
thrythlind: as a note, doing the climby pole attacks on keyboard and mouse is DIFFICULT
silenceaux: What is corruption, but a change the speaker finds disgusting?
Cepsys: can we offer him an antacid
TehAmelie: four stomachs worth of bile
call_me_Aras: I hated these spitting demons. They are literally the worst enemy in the game. They jump around and have so much health. Not easy to stagger either.
Magnifisquatch: get this boy a tums
Cepsys: shivam beat me to the joke!
spiltdownman: Look when you spend all day in a sea of milk and a lactose intolerant it gives you hella stomach issues
RandomTrivia: F
BrowneePoints: And for the music is that Sitar and Tabla?
silenceaux: literally fleshy tones
Dandinstorm12: Generic eh, sick burn
Dandinstorm12: lrrAWESOME
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: sitar has such a brilliant sound
thrythlind: Is the full version of this game out already?
cuttlefishman: Is this a sacred fig we're fighting around?
Dmc3628: yeah RPG battle theme fatigue
Cepsys: looks at Skyrim dragon fight music
Dandinstorm12: That's the nice thing about Fallout, radios are great
RandomTrivia: Battle music loop is a problem as old as RPGs themselves
cuttlefishman: But Squenix needs your money
TheBumblingBagOfBogusLuck: Are there other types of supernatural beings in Hinduism that are not gods or demons?
thrythlind: watch the statues
thrythlind: Naga!
onyxseeker: Happy 17th Anniversary LLR and hoping for many more years more.
cuttlefishman: What is the closest thing to a werewolf / loup-garou?
Dmc3628: Grab a chair
KV1NN4: Asia is bursting with ...the stuff.
ContingentCat: Hinduism's like *slaps top of mythology* we can fit so many supernatural beings in this baby
thrythlind: all cultures are bursting with supernatural stuff, it's just we tend to overlook our own culture's stuff a lot
jessieimproved: This game is beautiful
BrowneePoints: When your civilization settles down super early, you have TON of time to just write
TehAmelie: once you make up writing anyway
BrowneePoints: It just blows my mind how ancient India is
RandomTrivia: And sometimes it rains... bridge
TehAmelie: the Norse god stories were never written down until after Christianity had overwritten them :(
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: same with the Irish
Dandinstorm12: Do it Shivam!
floki4242: I'm all for the Hindu lesson
e_bloc: thats why you're paying you the big bucks Shivam!

SerGarretCameron: with this level of detail, it'd probably square the modelling budget.
BrindleBoar: yeah that would at least double their level sizes

RandomTrivia: It's something very special to listen to someone talk about something they're passionate about. There's nothing quite like it
BrowneePoints: Is the thunderbolt symbolic to a particular Deva Shivam?
judgementkazzy: is there symbolism to the peacock?
thrythlind: Samudra in Scion 2e describes Indra as the "designated jerk" of the Deva
BrowneePoints: There's a lot of love and care put in this game
chadtastic112: It's Shivam! Hi Shivam!
call_me_Aras: Y'know, seeing this game, and hearing Shivam just gush and delight, I realized I've never had that experience with a christian game. I actually would like to see what a game respecting Christianity like this.

ContingentCat: Tired: the game trying to kill you, Wired: the player trying to kill you
AshBurnem: Yahoo

asthanius: Can we get a video of Shivam doing exactly that?
BrowneePoints: It really reminds me of Mesopatamian/Sumerian Architecture!
spiltdownman: Is that saying a lot about the architecture of the area or Shivam's own acrobatic abilites?
RandomTrivia: "Combat Kite Festival" I have never wanted anything more than what that sounds like
silenceaux: Cutting strings with strings
TehAmelie: it comes up in The Ground Beneath her Feet
BusTed: Yoink.
BrindleBoar: playing for ante
KV1NN4: Malaysia has a similar thing...

BrindleBoar: worth it
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun I think you've found a cool pre-record for live

asthanius: Yoyo sword?
Himyul: it's a bow
ArdCollider: that totally sounded like Ian has an aviary of aggressive kites on their roof
GhostValv: :O
call_me_Aras: Bear waterfall?
asthanius: What is a bow if not a yoyo sword?
thrythlind: apparently bows are SERIOUS BUSINESS in Deva myths

TehAmelie: i remember this Stephen King story about neighbors in an escalating fireworks battle that ends with some monstrous, full size UFO made of paper and fire that burns down a house. now if we could combine this with combat kites. . .
spiltdownman: I would listen to the 8 hour long story podcast by Shivam
RandomTrivia: ^

Izandai: Oh hey, this game. This game looked sick.
randomino5: @e_bloc There are as many gods as there are Los Angelii
someguynamedDane: I would absolutely listen to Shivam tell hours of Hindu stories
ContingentCat: more story time with Shivam sounds good
BrindleBoar: silenceaux they could be magic hoops
silenceaux: BrindleBoar good point
therisingtithes_: I'm unfortunately gonna have to check the VOD of this later, but I just want to say how neat and delightful it is to hear Shivam be so unapologetically enthusiastic about these things, and that a game of all things gave him the opportunity to do so (in a time when some games about minority mythology are Not Great)
A_Dub888: N U C L E A R L A U N C H D E T E C T E D

thrythlind: I ran a scion 1e game once where a player played King Arthur reincarnated as a child of Kali...unfortunately it was run well before I knew much about the culture so wasn't able to do much from the Deva side of much regret in retrospect

ContingentCat: at the same time "this thing reminds me of a hindu story...." *Cori, Cam, and chat listen in rapt interst* so please keep going
BrowneePoints: I LOVE the interwining of Ancient China and India's histories and cultural stories Shivam.
thrythlind: Shivam you need to go to the Scion 2e Discord and meet Samudra, you sound like you and he would hit it off
ArdCollider: never would've guessed, Shivam. :D
asthanius: What part of Hindu lit inspired Chi Chi Kappa
thrythlind: Scion makes a repeat point about Yama being overworked and managing the afterlives of four pantheons
call_me_Aras: Those are two different characters. There's Ox King and Yama. Ox King is ChiChis father
ContingentCat: india and China would have done a lot of trade it makes sense their stories would borrow
Cartographers_Ink: I learned about Hinduism, and other religions, when i majored in Religion in my undergrad. Shivam reminds me why eastern relgions stories are so awesome
ArdCollider: yes, never apologize to me, it's true.
raaabr: I wonder if there has been cross cultural pollination for the rabbit on the moon
BrowneePoints: But yea, also how Indian and Chinese Deities have a very structured hierarchy it's so cool!
SketchyDetails: Is there a Hindu version of Aladin?
more_alpacas: make sense given that India and China have been trading since 2 c. bc
BrowneePoints: @raaabr japanese, chinese AND korean
raaabr: I know the rabbit shows up in the story of Chang e
BrowneePoints: It's China Korea AND Japan
ContingentCat: por que no los dos?

KV1NN4: Yup! Legit about Aladdin XD
raaabr: Yep
raaabr: Aladdin is weiiiiiird
silenceaux: So it's ancient Arabia's interpretation of ancient China?
GhostValv: I feel like I should login to mobile just to use the head explode img
thrythlind: the sorcerer in Alladin is like "some place far west" and Alladin and the princess are "some place far east"
thrythlind: neither are Arabic
niccus: you have to complete the loop, right? have one written in chinese set in seattle
bv310: Probably a hard sell for the Princess line, yeah.
thrythlind: yeah, sorry, Persian
BrowneePoints: Speaking of which Shivam, this Indian architecture reminds me a lot of Persian too
asthanius: Ray Bradbury is from Mars
thrythlind: there was a Hallmark version that did the Ring Genie
e_bloc: I talk about that 10 mana artifact
TehAmelie: !card aladdin's ring
LRRbot: Aladdin's Ring [8] | Artifact | {8}, {T}: Aladdin's Ring deals 4 damage to any target.
BrowneePoints: Oh!
thrythlind: John Leguizamo played both genies
KV1NN4: No love for the genie of the ring and bottle :c
Rourke9: Shakespeare never set any plays in anywhere other than England. Certainly not Italy or Denmark
TehAmelie: such power
e_bloc: eight mana artifact!
e_bloc: sorry was thinking of the lamp
BrowneePoints: Yea, i was just sitting here going "huh Sumeria, Mesopatamia, Persia and India have some similar architectural themes"
GhostValv: :O
thrythlind: the Mongols were diverse, there were Christian and Muslim Mongols
call_me_Aras: The first time I ever learned about the Ring Genie was from a cartoon featuring Sanrio characters as storybook characters. I was 5 or 6 when I saw that
QuietJay: For the Camp!
BrowneePoints: Oh yea! Warcraft uses Ordo for the Yaungol!
more_alpacas: Babur was originally from Chagatai, which used to be a Mongol Khanate, but he was more likely of Turkish descent
BrowneePoints: Wow that's subtle Blizzard...
Tiber727: @thrythlind That tends to happen when you practically control an entire continent.
thrythlind: yup
RandomTrivia: Potentially the derivation of "ordinary" as one of many... Ooh
bv310: Thank you Canadian Heritage Minutes
asthanius: Have you ever heard the tale of Darth Plagueis the Wise?
RandomTrivia: Linguistic derivations are fascinating indeed
Saintnex: It’s likely based on ordos plateau, the place in southern Mongolia too
call_me_Aras: Well actually to fulfill Canadian content quotas
thrythlind: well, America advertises America to Americans virtually non-stop....ugly
bv310: Teaching us to be vaguely smug about originating the guy who invented basketball
silenceaux: The Heritage Moments themselves becoming A Part Of Our Heritage is something I quite love.
BrowneePoints: Chicago is literally the native word for "stinky root vegetable" Shivam
silenceaux: If only more of them were actually about great things happening in Canada
someguynamedDane: Reminds me of how Michigan literally comes from a First Nation word for Large Lake
raaabr: And then there's the entire mess of what "curry" is
superkooky: Rice and Dal all day
jessieimproved: Like when people think that Japanese people eat sushi all the time, I've been there, fun fact, they don't
ContingentCat: it's like having a whole pizza oven in your house
Dmc3628: yeah pathing game purposes
virre_: Hmm does that applies to Dosa, Idly, Vadai and such things?
raaabr: Curry being a term to refer to like...multiple countries vaguely similar stew/gravy that you put on top of ricce
jessieimproved: I spent a whole summer in Japan, I at a lot of rice with a little bit of protein on top
raaabr: Japanese curry, indian curry, and thai curry are soooo different though
thrythlind: I lived in Japan 7 years and mostly didn't eat the school lunches because that's about the same time I learned that onions do not agree with my body
empyreon: combini strawberry cream sandos
empyreon: riffGasm
raaabr: (I feel suspect saying indian curry, since...well, it's probably a thousand times more varied than that0
thrythlind: and Japanese foods (or all cuisine really) have a LOT of onions
Basic_Human_Decency: like how the chinese would get beijing or "capitol" food it's supposed to be the best of the best not like panda express's beijing beef..
more_alpacas: when I was in Japan, I went to an Indian restaurant just outside of University of Tokyo a lot
jessieimproved: @more_alpacas My fellow exchange students and I went to an Indian restaurant in Fukuoka, we had to convince the waiter that we really could eat spicy lol
thrythlind: there's a story about a misogynistic sage refusing to recognize a goddess or anything female and the gods remove anything female from him so he becomes a skeleton
BrowneePoints: Oh yea! I remember that on Great British Bake Off! Indian-British chef had to cook Naan and he was from a region where they ate Roti
asthanius: primivil
AlchemicalPanda: prime weavel?
thrythlind: (yes, I'm trying to provoke storytelling from Shivam)
more_alpacas: yeah, I can't go too spicy myself, so the more "Japanese" Indian food was fine for me
thrythlind: yeah, Samudra refers to them as "the Hinduisms"
silenceaux: Oh, the many headed snake giving shade, I love that entity
thrythlind: I think Samudra is the same tradition
thrythlind: it sounds familiar
asthanius: So, would you say this game could feel alienating for some Indian people?
Dmc3628: full enrapturement
asthanius: Or is that easier to get past?
spiltdownman: or is this the tradition they came from?
asthanius: Nice
thrythlind: I wish Abrahamics were more like that
SquirrelLord1111: Which god is this, i missed the name?

virre_: Shivam I love your twitter threads, I was really fascinated about the Godess popularised by a movie
InkyGhoast: i hope that didn't happen around the same time as all the wotc drama. (pick a drama any drama)
SquirrelLord1111: I pray you aren't found out Shivam
Naarius: You have been found guilty of being a casual
Hexy_Lexy234: you say "weird" shivam, but what you actually mean is "wonderful" :P

Basic_Human_Decency: wasn't sita sings the blues animated?
Tiber727: I always hate when games do that without asking you.
Dmc3628: if it wasn't for the indivisible fiasco I would totally have a TS with Shivam on that game
RandomTrivia: Game is gonna game
Naarius: It's so good
jessieimproved: Cheer100 Cheer100 I would love to have Shivam again on a Talking Sim stream, I could listen for hours.
RandomTrivia: You said Pixar Short and already we were sold
thrythlind: I've seen that short
thrythlind: it's great

RandomTrivia: The battle music has definitely started to grate.
TehAmelie: lrrHORN
spiltdownman: Cori's big gamer brain and Shivam's big story brain are the ultimate combo
Dmc3628: ^
GhostValv: :)
thrythlind: I did a weird twitter thread recently where I picked apart my Divine Blood setting and realized that a lot of my world-building on that is probably related to me being most-likely undiagnosed neuto-atypical but trying to pass as normal...ended with wishing I had the money to hire authors to tell stories from other perspectives inside the world settign.
gualdhar: I love this, but I need to watch this entire stream a second time when I have a useful pause button
jessieimproved: Take care everyone, I'm off to bed, this has been a great stream.

TehAmelie: drifting
RandomTrivia: It's important to be able to relate to things, it's what makes us human
TehAmelie: Pacific Rim-style
RandomTrivia: No one is an island, etc.
thrythlind: it's like I can't enjoy a story without also thinking "what if one of my characters encountered these people"
thrythlind: yeah
thrythlind: it's nice to find connection
Basic_Human_Decency: but if you get in the sea do you become one?
Capt_clown: It's how we process the world around though the filters of our own experiences
Makrosian_Tae: Ah, I know this feeling!
Capt_clown: *around us
RandomTrivia: I think you need some sort of foundation to be an island, otherwise you're... flotsam? Basic_Human_Decency
Naarius: Someone cast Sea's Claim on me a while back, what do?
call_me_Aras: Is the word your thiking of projecting?
thrythlind: projecting would be inside going out...what I'm doing when these rants are triggered is more like trying really hard to express in examples things that what they said made me feel
RandomTrivia: There is a wonderful statement from the end of Metroid Fusion
RandomTrivia: We are all bound by our experiences. They are the limits of our consciousness.
thrythlind: so, opposite direction
ElektroTal: @ArdCollider i can imagine your private chats right now are something like "Tal is tal-ing off right now"
asthanius: @thrythlind Like, trying to explain something in a different way to make it clear that you understand something
asthanius: Like finding an analogy from your own life
Capt_clown: so interpreting the subject by relating to your own experiences and throwing it back to confirm understanding?
TehAmelie: metaphors
thrythlind: yeah, it's frustrating because I love writing and storytelling and TTRPGs and I was a teacher in various places for 17 years, but these things still come over me and it's like the only way I can express is by flood
asthanius: Hm. Cori's still desynced
RandomTrivia: Awww...

Juliamon: Oh yeah that's some bad desync
BrowneePoints: But it looks so much fun!
Capt_clown: I mean that's 100% part of executive dysfunction
spiltdownman: are there any good Hindi stories about star wars?
LordZarano: Is Ian in VR?
BrowneePoints: have you tried Star Wars Legion Cori?
RandomTrivia: Shivam certainly can talk. And thank goodness for it enriches us all
thrythlind: my Brother ran a very fun FFG Star Wars for a bit but then stopped because he hit canon paralysis not wanting to mess with timelines and for some reason he believed I wasn't having fun with my pilot because I was only really good at piloting

TehAmelie: past unreliable narrators, there are impenetrable narrators
judgementkazzy: the bad-luck ~bars~ birbs
call_me_Aras: @thrythlind I feel like I understand that flood thing your talking about. Relating to others through sharing a similar experience you've had is something I do a lot. That's a common trait in AdHD so maybe lookingthat up might help you? Maybe.
thrythlind: there's some of that in Lord of the Rings, the focus of descriptions, what things are detailed and what things aren't and what is told varies based on whether Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, or Aragorn is the focus
thrythlind: @call_me_Aras possible, I don't have money to get diagnosed, the current is that my friends and I assume I'm somewhere on the autism spectrum
thrythlind: current theory*
Makrosian_Tae: Wow
starlitdiscord: o.o
RandomTrivia: I know it's terrible but I'm just thinking of "Rabbit Season, Duck Season"
Capt_clown: @thrythlind There is a Reddit thread for ADHD that might help. I've found it extremely eye opening.
thrythlind: cool
Naarius: @RandomTrivia There are so many political/religious parallels to that argument though
RandomTrivia: Well quite
call_me_Aras: @thrythlind Well autism and ADHD have been considered very related recently, so I'm not surprised. There's some excellent ADHD videos on youtube and comics on twittef by ADHDALIEN which might give you an idea waht ADHD is like.
Basic_Human_Decency: seething
thrythlind: @call_me_Aras thanks

MuffinsOnAHill: He also taught them some basic routines for their physical health
TehAmelie: is this the closest we've seen to an "enemy" in a game using something like God of War's extendo-chain-swords?
thrythlind: the version I heard was that he looked at the Chinese monks and they couldn't meditate without falling asleep so he taught them martial arts to build up their endurance

Mysticman89: this guy is quite the arrow sponge
BrowneePoints: Just like when folks thinks of Buddhism they think of China, but the Buddha was an Indian Prince correct?
Diabore: @Naarius ty for answering, i was about too and would have misspelled the last name (missed the h)
thrythlind: I made it up once when my brother came to visit and I made the trip down from Fukushima to go to Kyoto with him for that
