2021.10.25 20:58 Lobo5thousand Request to not record any gameplay
I know a lot of people have already seen, but there was a request put out to not record any gameplay during the testing. I know its totally going to happen, but I have seen a lot of people on here already not giving a shit about that request. Its kinda weird that this is supposed to be a community of people that are all looking forward to the same game and, until recently, has been a nice and nontoxic community. I just wish more people respected fromsoft’s wishes considering everyone here enjoys what they do. Its kinda weird that we all respect and enjoy the content fromsoft gives and of those people being lucky enough to get the codes to play, are just going to disrespect the company like that. I know people are going to do it, I just wish so many werent like, “fromsoft please give me a code to play so I can fuck u over.” Just kinda disappointing to see what this subreddit turned into.

2021.10.25 20:58 SergarRegis The Necrons' Long Term Restoration Plans
From time to time I've seen people raise the question of what the Necrons mean to do in the long term, as they are fundamentally a dead race, with no children and no way to replace their losses as they happen. As we're getting a few more insights into Necron society and more content from behind their oculars.
What I don't see brought up so often is that they have a number of plans already in motion from different characters as to how to address this problem and ensure their long term existence. I've put together some quotes that I hope people will find interesting on the topic of Necron long term ambitions.
There's fundamentally three approaches that the Necrons have considered.
Option one: Reverse of Biotransferrence
The obvious one, and a cherished dream of a large number of Necrons is to enact a new biotransferrence, into (healthier!) bodies.
All of these acts, diverse though they are in scope and method, are directed towards a single common goal: the restoration of the Necron dynasties. Yet, with the Triarch long gone and huge numbers of Tomb Worlds lying desolate or dormant, there can be no galaxy-wide coordination, no grand strategy that will bring about Necron ascendancy. Instead, each Tomb World's ruler must fend for himself, pursuing whatever course he deems most suited to circumstance. For some, this is the domination of nearby threats and the sowing of terror on alien worlds. For others, it might be the recovery of cultural treasures, the stockpiling of raw materials for campaigns yet to come, or even the search for an organic species whose bodies might be suitable vessels for Necron minds, thus finally ending the curse of biotransference. Indeed, this last matter - the apotheosis from machine to living being - is the key motivating factor for many Necron nobles, for its possibility weighed heavily on the Silent King's mind at the moment of his final command.Source: Codex Necrons 5th Edition page 9
THE BLOOD VATS OF ZANTRAGORACodex Necrons 5th Edition page 17
The nobles of Zantragora have but one overriding goal. Their aim is apotheosis, the undoing of biotransference's curse by transferring their consciousnesses into the bodies of other sentient creatures. Their belief that such a thing is possible is rooted both in the final command of the Silent King, and in prophecies made at the time of the Great Sleep. These, while predicting that apotheosis would come to pass, lacked much in the way of detail, and it has ever been unclear whether the Necrons need to take over other bodies, or clone new ones for their eternal minds to inhabit.
To this end, the legions and fleets of Zantragora scour the galaxy for fresh subjects, following strict search patterns lest they somehow miss a world whose inhabitants hold the key. Hundreds of thousands of samples, both living and dead, are taken from every planet in the search pattern. Sealed in stasis-sleep, these are conveyed back to Zantragora to feed the never-ending series of autopsies, gene-splicing, tissue mutation and molecular deconstruction that typifies the quest for apotheosis. Progress is excruciatingly slow, and every step is marked in the blood of lesser species.
c744.M41Codex Necrons 5th Edition page 24
The Silent King enters the bounds of the galaxy once more. Having encountered the Tyranids in the intergalactic void, he recognizes the threat they pose to the Necrons' apotheosis - if the Tyranids devour all life in the galaxy, the Necrons will never find living bodies to house thier conciousnesses. Thus does the Silent King break his self-imposed exile with the goal of marshalling his people against this new threat.
Raunek Ka, The Holder of KeysBlack Crusade, Tome of Fate page 118
Crypteks are the caste responsible for maintaining the Necrons’ ancient technologies. While all are masters of science and technology, each Cryptek specialises in a particular realm of techno-sorcery, be it geomancy, chronomancy, or some other esoteric discipline. The one known as Raunek Ka, like many of his order, is fascinated by the prospect of the reversal of biotransference and a return to the time of flesh. Whether this is due to a genuine desire to live again as flesh and blood, or mere scientific curiosity, none can say. While his brethren on distant worlds such as Zantragora obsess over the structure of nerves, tissue, and bone, Raunek Ka instead focuses on what he sees as the defining characteristic of the Necrons’ current state: the soul, or rather, lack thereof. Ka believes that it was the loss of their souls, and not the loss of their frail, fleshly bodies, that was the true tragedy of biotransference. And while other Crypteks may be loathe to touch on the matter, Raunek Ka realises full well the intrinsic connection between souls and the warp.
Raunek Ka has bent all of his resources and advanced technologies to studying the flow of the immaterium, the currents of the Screaming Vortex [a major and long-lasting warp-storm], and the connection between physical body and transcendent soul. However, his own nature as a soulless machine and member of a race without psykers throws up numerous barriers in this research. Raunek Ka seems to be aware of this and is willing to concede that the inferior races may be able to offer him insights that he can never gain through cold study. He has struck bargains with the denizens of the Vortex for tomes of forbidden lore or first-hand insights into the nature of the warp and the soul. Of course, he is also sure to take captive as many psykers as possible when he goes to raid with his liege, Aetehk the Watcher. As an advisor to Aetehk, Raunek Ka is almost always present during raids and attacks, though his primary focus is on his research. Whether or not Aetehk shares the Cryptek’s thoughts on the warp and apotheosis is unclear even to the lesser nobles that make up Aetehk’s court. What is clear is that Aetehk listens to the counsel of Raunek Ka in all matters, so long as it does not conflict with his own mysterious goals. It is possible that the continued existence of human life on the Pillars of Eternity is due only to Raunek Ka’s wishes, so that he might have a steady supply of test subjects.
In his research, Raunek Ka has gained great insight into the function of the warp and has applied this knowledge to make improvements and subtle alterations to established nullfield technology and other anti-psyker equipment. Among his inventions is the Voidstave, a weapon utilising a focussed nullfield to disrupt the minds of psykers, and the Aetheroscope, a sophisticated scanner designed to detect warp activity.
Unbeknownst to Overlord-Regent Ahhotekh, Ozkan has remained loyal to his Phaeron throughout the tumultuous events of the awakening of the Hollow Sun. Under the guise of carrying out the regent’s orders, the Cryptek has, in fact, been seeking a means of investing a Necron consciousness into a body of fl esh and bone and, in so doing, of reclaiming all they once had. Ozkan’s researches and secret experiments have led him to the conclusion that only a body as strong and as tough as a Necron’s living metal frame will provide a suitable vessel for such a reawakening, and this can be attested to by the numerous failed experiments hidden deep within his chambers. Locked within the lambent glow of pulsing stasis chambers are to be found rank after rank of once sentient beings, including humans, Orks, Eldar, Tau, and a dozen others, each of which has had a Necron consciousness transferred into its mind. In each case, the body has proven too weak, or the mind too strong for the process, and the Codifier has failed, creating some hideous, mindless insane creature more terrible still than a Flayed One.Deathwatch RPG, The Outer Reach, page 118 (yes, same page different book!)
But of late, Ozkan the Codifier has come to believe he has discovered a mortal shell strong enough to contain the consciousness of a Necron. Though rare, he even holds that these apex specimens of organic perfection might even be sufficient to host the consciousness of the Crimson Scythe. The body Ozkan has identified is, of course, that of the Adeptus Astartes, the sacred, post-human form wrought by the Emperor himself to serve as the champions of mankind. To date, Ozkan has not been able to capture a living Space Marine, so he has not had the opportunity to test the veracity of his blasphemous theories. He has, however, come into possession of the bodies of several fallen Battle-Brothers-those that fell undertaking the mission led by the outcast Inquisitor Thaddeus Hakk. Every moment he is not maintaining the pretence of following Overlord-Regent Ahhotekh’s orders, Ozkan spends ensconced in his laboratory, delving into the wonders of Astartes biology, or else coordinating the hunt for a living specimen. when that happens, the venerable Cryptek hopes the process of properly reawakening the Phaeron of the Suhbekhar Dynasty can begin.
‘I will not permit you the opportunity to fail me again, plasmancer,’ snapped Simut. Green flares of energy pulsed across his body to spiral along the tomb ship umbilical. ‘I have been left no choice but to replace you with the Skorpekh Lord Zozar.’Indomitus, Gav Thorpe, Chapter Two
A pulse of genuine dismay slipped across their cortical field connection.
‘The Silent King has ordered that we preserve the lower lifeforms where possible, my lord,’ protested Ah-hotep. ‘They may prove useful later, as potential vessels for biotransference or an indentured workforce.’
Disdain flowed through Simut, discharging itself as jade energy streamers.
‘You dare invoke the name of my cousin to intimidate me?’ The words of Tholotep cycled through the overlord’s memories, goading him. ‘I think that perhaps the flesh-memory is too strong within you. You harbour a residual sentiment for these lower beings.’
‘Not at all!’ The plasmancer floated higher, vertebrae-tail twitching with anger. ‘I...’ Ah-hotep’s protests died away amid a stutter of cortical static.
‘You would do what, plasmancer? Take my command from me? Usurp my rule for your own? I do not forget how you inveigled yourself into this endeavour. Do not outstay your usefulness.’
The plasmancer drifted back and forth a few times before descending to the floor of the chamber, her essence purring with placating outputs.
‘Grant me one more chance to seize the citadel without destroying the humans entirely.’
The C'tan might have provided the knowledge for biotransference, but it was Szeras who made it a reality. Even then, he saw it as the first of several steps on the path to ultimate evolution, a journey that would end as a creature not of flesh or metal, but as a god of pure energy.Codex Necrons 5th Edition page 56
You can serve many functions. As can the Serenade shard.The Infinite and Divine, Robert Rath, Epilogue
Functions such as researching how to capture and sustain an energy form long-term. For though the callousness of omniscience had frightened him at first, he had come to see what was too difficult to ken in the moment.
Time is a wheel. And the wheel turns ever on. The universe cares not for necrons, or aeldari, or humans or orks. It cares not even for C’tan or Old Ones. And the only way to escape the wheel was to become part of the wheel.
And Orikan could do so, if he had enough cosmic power.
The planets and constellations were sliding into place, and he felt their channels of connecting energy, their dark matter and gravitation superclusters, the connection of the universe that kept it in spin. He opened his collection ports and drank in the milky starlight of creation.
Time is a wheel. And the wheel always turns, bringing a time for all things.
And for Orikan, it was a time for revenge.
From their concealed fortresses, the Triarch Praetorians plotted for that day, many Terran millennia distant though it was, when the Necrons would emerge to dominate the galaxy once again, when the laws of old would once more hold sway. Yet they knew there was a good chance that the untested stasis technology would fail, and that their sleeping kin would never wake. So it was that the Triarch Praetorians came to travel widely throughout the galaxy, masquerading as grim-visaged gods on countless primitive worlds. They brought the codes of the Necrontyr to credulous primitives, reshaping cultures according to their own ideals. Few civilisations wholly embraced the Triarch Praetorians' teachings; many more were exterminated by wars, natural disaster or the vengeful outriders of Alaitoc Craftworld, who were ever determined to see the Triarch Praetorians fail in their mission. Nonetheless, the Aeldari ultimately failed at this task as well, and fragments of Triarch lore and archeotech survive on worlds not trod upon by Necrons in many thousands of years.Perhaps if the Necrons did clear the galaxy of organized resistance but ultimately face the end of their species, this concept would be revisited from among the species subjugated. Of course, it shouldn't necessarily be imagined that the winners of this particular lottery would be humans, there seem to be some 'few civilizations' who might qualify but it doesn't seem that humans are one of them, as a Triarch Prateorian in World Engine speaks of humans being slated for either extermination or enslavement by his order. Of course, I imagine Matt Ward was hanging a lantern, in a very Chariots of the Gods or Stargate way, on the Necrons' Ancient Egyptian themes.
Now, as the Necrons stir ever more into wakefulness, the Triarch Praetorians have sensed an opportunity to expunge their failure. [...] Though Triarch Praetorians share the usual Necron contempt for any race that is not their own, they are ever watchful for an opponent marked millennia ago by their influence, and sometimes proclaim such creatures honourable foes against whom the codes of battle must be observed. This can prove frustrating to an army's commander -- such niceties are an unwelcome impedance to the battle's prosecution - but it would be a bold Nemesor indeed who overruled the wishes of a Triarch Praetorian in so blatant a fashion.
The lesser creatures stared at the Phaerakh with dull-eyed expectation, but it was not towards the Watcher of the Dark that they needed to direct their attention.Here, our necron overlady muses on using the C'tan shards to sustain necrontyr civilization past the age of stars entirely. Current theories on heat death suggest that star formation will cease somewhere around one hundred trillion years into the future.
The Phaerakh thought-transferred into the main energy system and deactivated the coupling bonds that kept shut the tesseract chamber. Swarms of canoptek leeches slithered into the parting chamber as the top section of the containment obelisk split to allow electrocarrier waves to elevate its contents.
Inside the dampeners the god-fragment writhed. Photon emissions raged at the perceived barbarity to which it had been subjected. The Watcher of the Dark felt no sympathy for the sun-shard, for if it was set free it would not hesitate to destroy her, her great works and any living thing within reach. It was important to remember that the electron-shriek of distress emanating from within the containment net was nothing more than the protestations of a being denied free rein to rampage. Subjecting the god-fragment to imprisonment was not only coercive, it was essential to survival.
The Watcher of the Dark turned and indicated the opening edifice with her staff. Ejections of stray particulate sprayed from the open section, carving flickering arcs of ionised air that seemed imbued with a life of their own. Through eyes far superior to any organic equivalent she marvelled at the interplay of molecules distorted and rent apart by the released energy of the god-fragment.
The thought that she harnessed the energy of this galactic predator brought a glimmer of satisfaction. It was but a small piece of the whole yet it would burn for eternity, giving off its lifeforce to sustain Pantalikoa as it had once sought to feed off the lives of her people. It would be mistaken to think of the caging of the exostellar manifestation as a punishment for the betrayal of its whole. The far greater reason was pragmatic. When the stars themselves would gutter and die, when entropy had all but quenched life from the galaxy, this being and the others like it would sustain the necrontyr civilisation. Truly they had mastered their destiny. Retribution was fleeting, dominance was forever.

Have you seen the trend on instagram of people showing what "real skin look like". I feel like they are exaggerating on some of the pic, but anyway, not everyone have bad skin. It bring the stigma of : people that wear makeup have bad skin.
Even brand like Huda Beauty are doing that. She has been calling the photoshop culture but a lot of people called her out since she has done some filler and other stuff to her face.
Everyone have their good and bad... but some people have more good than bad. And we have to be ok with that. I might look good if I pull myself together... but I don't look good naturally. That doesn't mean that there isn't human being that looks better than me. I'm not going to normalize that everyone have my flaws to make myself feel better. I think it's even the opposite... maybe social media in a healthy way can push us to be a better version of ourself.
It's only fake if you constantly present a fake version of yourself.
