I had the greatest idea ever!

Imagine an MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game) set in the Harry Potter universe!

original

Without even knowing any details this sounds already like an amazing idea right? I know! Add to it with an open world and immersion from a game like Witcher 3 and you got a big time opportunity to make something good become great (i.e a single player game but in MMORPG format!). Time to go deep into the details of my idea:

  • Everyone will be playing as humans, the universe has multiple different humanoid creatures, but for Hogwarts school of Witchcraft (only a zone in the universe, which you can choose to go to or not – more about it later) there will only be pure-blooded wizards/witches and muggle-born wizards/witches. You will be able to choose between being a pure blood (born into a family of magic and surrounded by all the mysteries from birth) or a muggle (growing up as a normal human, not knowing of your competent skill in magic).
  • You will obviously be able to choose first- and surname – might be a bit redundant to have both names, could settle for only one first name and/or nickname.
  • There will be a system of traits or skills to already spend points into, in the character customization screen. Think the S.P.E.C.I.A.L system from the Fallout genre, but not quite the same. Every level you achieve will further your trait/skill tree and grow larger with more options to choose from – think Skyforge talent trees or Path of Exiles skill tree.
    • Intelligence, Bravery, Modesty, Cunning, Athleticism, Spell-knowledge, Potion-knowledge, Dark Arts knowledge, Heroism, Cowardice, Herbalism-knowledge, Magical Creature-knowledge, Social Skill (Extroverted, Introverted, In-Between) are just many of the traits/skill sets you would be able to customise during the game and during the character customization.
      • With every point you spend into a trait (not in skills) another point from the opposite trait will be subtracted. You can balance it all out or you can go full-blown anything!
      • These traits/skills will help your character in every aspect of the game. You are in a duel with another player and your cowardice is high? Most likely your character will take time charging/casting spells and might sometimes panic (quick time events to get back right into it). Same scenario but with bravery in the high-end scale: you will rarely panic during battles, it will still happen but it would have to be a lot of pressure on your character (maybe a dragon or too many enemies at once etc).
      • The more you level up the closer you are to graduating Hogwarts (if you chose to go to the school) and go into the adult world of magic, if you chose to not you might already have started in it etc.
  • An in-depth customization of character looks, no one should be forced to look the same – you can if you really would want to.
    • A system like Black Desert Online‘s would be amazing, with save files you could download – if you would want to look like a celebrity or just found a good avatar that you want to shape into yourself.
    • Everyone will be human, but you could choose to have a bit more pointy ears, different pupil/eye shapes, maybe a bit bigger canines etc – your bloodline might not just be humans…
  • Likes and Dislikes – these will affect how well you will do in certain classes and/or activities, and whom you would be able to get along with – obviously you can get along with everyone (it is an mmo hurrdurrrrhurr), but your character can get attracted/repelled by certain hobbies and favourites of some players – you are able to work around these, but your character (and most likely yourself) can voice your/their opinion/s about it – it is an ice-breaker!
    • And can help you choose how you will let it affect your character and the way you interact with others.
    • This might not have the biggest gameplay breaking ability, but it helps with immersion.
  • The world will be open, much like our real life world. It will not be very fantasy-like unless you step into a hidden-from-the-muggles zone. Like the wizard cities, wild creature zones etc.
    • Raids and dungeons would be instanced.
      • Dungeons might be classes (the more physically magic ones, like Dark Arts) at Hogwarts, exploration missions in the open world (entering a cave to find something/someone or walk into a forest to sedate/knockout wildlife (as in unicorns, massive spiders, giants, centaurs etc) that have strayed too close to a muggle place). This can easily be brainstormed upon more and I would love comments (on anything too obviously -cheesy smile- hehe).
      • Raids, ahh, this is something I haven’t really thought through yet (I will be updating this regularly with ideas from myself and others, and probably make a new blog post every time linking back to older versions of it). I am open for anything!
      • Hogwarts would be instanced too, with its own open world in an open world – haha. Classes (could be individual dungeons with an NPC teacher, a student-filled room with an NPC teacher (interactive one) or dungeons, all of these would consist of many different lessons such as spellcasting: defence against the dark arts, transfiguration, charms, magic alchemy (transmuting and finding your elemental affinity), apparition (close to teleportation – easier classes would be learning how to create fireplace portals, communication through mirrors/fires/water and could go deeper into teleporting a few metres away to speed up walking/climbing/running etc without harming others and yourself – like the class in the movies/books you only have one chance to fail or pass either one), magical creature tending, herbalistic creatures and plants tending/learning, study of ancient runes (the ones that decide to walk this path unlock more classes and/or abilities – will get to the class system soon) and flying.
      • Your traits/skills chosen will be affecting how, if and when you can learn from the different lessons.
  • After “school” you can get a job, it is not a permanent job i.e you can quit it and choose another one, you can even be unemployed or employed by an organisation etc. You can travel the world, experience many different opportunities. These jobs would turn out as regular “quests”, always something to do… maybe one time you have to be an assistant, maybe you need to track down something/someone etc. It all depends on the job and/or profession you decided to go for.
    • There would be a penalty to quit a job though, like a week before you could jump into something new.
    • This would not hinder you doing raids/dungeons or any other event.
  • Class system… oh, this is a tough nut. I want to keep the holy trio – tank, healer and DPS. Because I am quite comfortable with it. I have an idea on how to keep it decent and not too cluttery, but it might be way too “whaaaaat…” so just bear with me! I do want to break the whole “class”-system though: if you want to be a damage heavy healer you should be able to. The players make up the names of the classes! If this was real, there would obviously be sites and subreddits to form the specific class you would want – you can also experiment! Balancing hopefully would not be an issue – shivers just thinking about it. There will be many different classes/versions of the roles. Hybrids will probably be very common.
    • There will be many different classes/versions of the roles. Hybrids will probably be very common.
      • Tanks would probably be good at shielding themselves/others, keeping threat with high damage but slow casting/recharge times and increased mana/life essence/orbs/any kind of resource cost.
      • Healers… so many ideas. You could be a DPS that has a big party cooldown, you could be a pure healer that focuses on casting spells that mends the wounds caused on your party members, a shield support that rather prevent damage than mend it etc.
      • You could be a full blown glass cannon, a literal transformer (chuckled hard), specialized in different aspects (lifting heavy things and throwing it at the target, making the target suffer physical wounds from dreaded curses etc)  etc. Can brainstorm so much more on this, I wish I had from the beginning already!
    • There might be a holy trio but there is no requirement to use it. You can go in wand blazing with just DPS for example!
    • There can be five different “classes” available in the beginning and with classes, experiences, special skill points and knowledge gain more classes/abilities can be unlocked. You can mix them up and become a completely different class compared to what you were or you can just switch to whatever you want.
  • Animations for spells, transformations, ruin knowledge would be very, very flashy obviously. You need to get some feedback for using them, so if you would cast a disarming spell you would be able to see the wand fly out of the hand of a player (for example) and the person would have to run and get it.
  • Player versus Player… I think this is where the game would shine.
    • The adult world and the school world would have different kinds of PvP. In school you would be able to duel, have a 3v3 or 5v5 etc and in the adult world you could see bigger battlegrounds, objective holding and maybe some world PvP – still being able to duel and do 3v3/5v5s/etc.
    • It would be more strategic gameplay than just “FOCUS THIS ONE NOW”.
  • There would be “factions”. The four houses of Hogwarts (if not going to school you can select favourite house in the character customization screen):
    • Gryffindor
    • Ravenclaw
    • Slytherin
    • Hufflepuff
      • Your traits will play a role in where you would be sorted and a questionnaire would help with putting you in the house you would want to be in.
    • You can hang out with friends from different houses. But your student hall etc would be in one of four different locations:
      • Gryffindor would be in a tower, just like Ravenclaw, not close to another though.
      • Slytherin would be underground, basement-like environment.
      • Hufflepuff would be located close to the school’s kitchens.

Right now this is all I have thought through! Feel free to comment with ideas and opinions.

Yes… this happened.

retard
I just wanted to share this. A couple of fun facts that she does not bring up:
1. She acted condescending and mocking towards me in the beginning of it all, and I am not a person that can stand above it sadly – trying to fix it. But apparently putting yourself in a better light is far more important than revealing both sides, just like eating somebody is far more important than caring for your own body and environment.
2. The arguements she had against veganism where literally Vegan Sidekick’s images. Almost textbook stupid. And when she had nothing else to retort to she went with “PLANTS HAVE FEELINGS”… so I just told her if she cared for plant lives she should choose a vegan lifestyle, less casualities.
3. Veganism is not for lazy people, according to her obviously, because it is so hard living in a bigger city with more than eight different vegan restaurants and more than four different vegan food stores to find vegan foodsources.
4. Love is not compatible with killing. It isn’t. Deal with it properly, like an adult. Making statuses about “omg horrible things happens but this vegan fascist…” is not really mature, I am glad to not be you, a disrespectful twat that can not hold her own in a simple discussion about doing the bare minimum of understanding that animals have basic rights, like anyone else, and that you are contributing/funding the exploit of their rights.
5. And really? Going as far as to compare me to genocide and religious fanatics? Seems more like your thing, seeing you are the one contributing to the far more vast amount of animals killed, both in the industry and in the fields. Only in the meat/dairy industry genocide and psychopathy are welcome. But hey, as long as it pleases your tongue.
6. I also never said anything about not caring for farmers, being a vegan you think about everyone’s health and quality of life, not only your own. To buy ecological is a far better choice to help said workers with their daily life than just being random items and not knowing what you support. But what kind of intelligence can I expect from someone that claims that all turks are filth?
Sadly this person is a former close friends’ girlfriend and she deals with her own double morales in her everyday life (overbearing, control freak and condescending towards anyone that is not her – not a big surprise that she is a racist). I did not have a good image or impression of her before this, but I did not want it to ruin something that might have been a somewhat close reminder of friendship. But seeing her rare display of retardation… meh, I rather be without her.

Double morales

Michelle thinks I am selfdestructing and ruining many friendships with the debates about veganism with them. I see why she thinks that way and why she wants to protect me from it. But most of the time, I genuinely hope that by discussing it at least there is a little seed that has sprouted. Unless the recipent is as dense as a wet towel. Which many people are.

Well, to protect myself and the few friendships I have left, I won’t go into the whole “love is not compatible with killing” arguements. Even though I find it genuinely retarded to believe you can love and care for someone and then just kill it because “I like the taste”.

Either way, if the subject would have been anything else than veganism… let’s say transphobia, homophobia or even feminism I would have been applauded by many and encouraged to continue my social justice warrior ways. But no, when it comes to a subject that lets others realize that they are not the only ones living on this planet and should care for the billions of animals that loses their lives based on a consumption that we humans do not need… yea, then I am the bad guy because I offend peoples’ foods.

I will just leave this here:

  • There are thousands of alternatives to meat, dairy and egg. You are just lazy to not research it. Oh, you don’t care because you like the taste? I am glad, the taste is spices, which you can literally recreate.
    • Oh, meat is easy to come by and vegan food is bland? What do you think vegans eat, grass? Just google vegan bbq, vegan dinner, vegan lunch etc, you will see millions of recipes that look better and are not restricted around a piece of carcass. When you remove the “my dish needs to be centered around a dead someone” factor you are open to a million of options.
  • All the nutrients found in meat have other sources. If your body can not take up pure supplements you’d be darned that it can not take up the filthy protein from animals, because surprise, surprise(!) protein is not the only thing you take up from a dead body, you also take up the bad toxins which your body rejects. But tell me more how you suddenly came over a PhD in nutrient values.
    • 90% of vegans have better nutrient values when they become vegan than when they were meat eaters.
  • You make it how you want to make it. You want to be an unhealthy fat vegan? Go for it, you have a ton of cakes, fat food etc. You want to be a body builder vegan? Go for it, you probably will get better results and feel better than the typical meat body builder. You want to be a normal vegan? Be that then.

I just need to find vegan friends.

Dear creepy heterosexual men…

Dear creepy heterosexual men guarding our bathrooms,

My entire life, I’ve been told to fear you in one way or another. I’ve been told to cover my body as to not distract you in school, to cover my body to help avoid unwanted advances or comments, to cover my body as to not tempt you to sexually assault me, to reject your unwanted advances politely as to not anger you. I’ve been taught to never walk alone at night, to hold my keys in my fist while walking in parking lots, to check the backseat of my car, to not drink too much because you might take advantage of me. I’ve been told what I should and shouldn’t do with my body as to not jeopardize my relationships with you.

I’ve been warned not to emasculate you, to let “boys be boys”, to protect your fragile ego and to not tread on your even more fragile masculinity. I’ve been taught to keep my emotions in check, to let you be the unit of measure for how much emotion is appropriate and to adjust my emotions accordingly. I’ve been taught that you’re allowed to categorize women into mothers/sisters/girlfriends/wives/daughters but any woman outside of your protected categories is fair game.

So to those of you who think you’re being helpful by “protecting” me and my fellow women, you’re like a shark sitting in the Lifeguard chair. I wasn’t uncomfortable until you showed up at the pool and the only potential predator I see is you.

Your mothers, sisters, girlfriends, wives and daughters don’t need you to walk them to the bathroom for safety. Your fathers, brothers, friends and sons need to walk themselves away from their own double standards. Women are sexually harassed and sexually assaulted on school campuses, on the street, at their jobs, on the Internet, in their own homes, in ANY public place. And it has been excused or ignored for so long because of what you and I are taught from the first years of our interactions with each other: You, as a male, are not accountable for your own actions. It’s MY responsibility, as a female, to not “provoke” you. But then you get to Knight-In-Shining-Armor your way through life for those in your protected categories and I am expected to applaud you. Why the outrage now over bathrooms? Why aren’t you outraged every single day?

If you’re telling me that there are high volumes of boys and men out there, in schools or in general, who are just waiting for a “loop hole” to sexually assault girls and women, we have bigger problems on our hands than bathrooms. The first problem would be your apparent lack of knowledge of how often it happens OUTSIDE of bathrooms, with no “loop holes” needed. This isn’t about Transgender bathroom access. This is about you not trusting the boys and men in your communities and/or fearing that they’re all secretly predators. Why do you have this fear? How many fathers have panicked when their daughters started dating because they “know how teenaged boys can be because they used to be one”? How many times have girls been warned “boys are only after one thing”? A mother can bring her young son into the women’s restroom and that’s fine but a father bringing his young daughter into the men’s restroom is disturbing because men are assumed to be predators and “little girls” shouldn’t be exposed to that.

So instead of picking up your sword and heading to Target or the girls’ locker room to defend our “rights”, why don’t you start somewhere that could actually make a difference? Challenge your children’s schools to end sexist dress codes and dress codes that sexualize girls as young as age 5. Advocate for proper (or any) sex education classes in all public schools by a certain grade level. Focus more on teaching your sons not to rape vs teaching your daughters how to avoid being raped. Stop asking “How would you feel if that was your mother or sister?” It shouldn’t take the comparison to clue you in to what’s right or wrong. Question why you’re more worried about your daughter being around men than your son being around women in bathrooms and dressing rooms. Stop walking by Victoria’s Secret with no problem but covering your son’s eyes if a woman is breastfeeding in public. Stop treating your daughter’s body as some fortress you’re sworn to protect as if that’s all she’s got to offer the world.

It is not only about the bathrooms in America, THIS is the fucking struggle as a female overall. Stop the hate, stop the witch hunting!

Jehovah’s Witness Propaganda…

This :article: is sickening, it clearly caters to younger children seeing the artstyle is inspired by Pixar and they had a very high budget. It manipulates young children to become bigots, it is completely disturbing and disgusting to watch. Why were they allowed to make this? Why would someone even support such a horrid organisation?

Let’s hope that this video gets circulated through the whole world so more can see how hateful this group is and how manipulative they are, they go to extremes almost. Why would one resort to brainwashing? When your arguements are lacking, that is when you do.

This is almost like a cult, no, it is a cult. It is dangerous, homophobic, misogynistic and so much more that they cover up.

Mind controlling starts at a young age, it is a great example of how sly this organisation is with promoting their hate speeches. People see JW as nice, smiling and good hearted people, but their underlying belief is grounded in bigotry, misogyny and the hope of a future genocide of the “wicked” – such as… ANYONE that isn’t a Jehovah’s Witness.

The only difference between JW and ISIS is that ISIS (they teach the exact same principle, anyone outside their belief is wicked and deserves to die) do their own killing, whereas the Witnesses waits for God to do it for them, to keep their hands clean while running the horrible machinery.

The cult is very controlling and there is no free thinking, they do what you to believe that there is, but there isn’t. It is blackmail, spiritual and mental abuse, a wolf in sheeps clothing.

Guilt tripping a child with fears of damnation makes you such a good parent I heard.

Vegans should be as guilty as meat eaters?

What? I just… what? No. Apparently this person thinks so:

The thing is the most of the land is cleared for crops yes, but not for vegan diets or vegetarian diets, it is for growing enough food for the animals people eat. So while animals are harmed in the production of all food, feeding that food to animals first, then eating them causes more harm than just not doing it. The amount of water and food needed to keep these animals alive long enough to slaughter, a huge amount, is a waste of resources overall and not to count in the countless of animals lives suffering because people force their way of living upon them. All problems associated with cropfarming gets incredibly huge when you have to feed 50 billion more individuals than what you have to.

Animal agriculture is quite simple and you can get easily educated in it, if you took the time but spouting nonsense will get you nowhere. Veganism is a good approach to taking the far less harmful way of living, than grinding animals to eat.

Comparing Animal Deaths in Production of Plant and Animal Foods

There is so much facts out about it, that has steamed from decades back when veganism and vegetarianism were controversial and looked down upon (it is looked down upon in today’s society too, but far worse back in the day sadly). Why would you want to continue justifying murdering innocent victims just so you can enjoy the taste of them?


On another note, I tried out porto bello mushroom today! It tasted really good. We made a dish with lemon risotto rice, green beans with tandoori sauce and porto bello, sliced, marinated in soy sauce, sesam olive oil, four gloves of garlic, chopped, and herb bouillon (and I added some teriyaki sauce too). The sweetness of the porto bello really complemented the spiciness of the tandoori, which was very spicy, so for me it was a relief to be able to save my taste buds from the spices with this lovely marinated mushroom. Mich tasted it too, but did not enjoy it as much, the taste was completely fine but the consistency was not to her liking, I think five minutes or more would have done it!

It was very easy to make and can be done in the oven too, which porto bello is made for, but we did it in a pan.

20160503_182254

How to make the Porto Bello for any kind of dish!

  • Set the oven to 200°C. If not doing oven version, ignore this.
  • Use a small bake dish for the marinade: Use two tablespoons of soy sauce, one tablespoon of teriyaki sauce (if wanted), one tablespoon of olive oil (we used sesam), chop four gloves of garlic and add it to the sauce mixture. Get some herb bouillon/vegetable stock (either one works) and take 1-2 table spoons of it, depending on how much you want, you can also replace the bouillon with white wine/red wine/cooking wine and use half a coffee cup (big size).
  • Add it all to the baking dish (if it wasn’t clear) and place the porto bello in it. You can slice it up before hand or just cook them whole (I recommend whole if you are doing the oven porto bello). If you are just frying/grilling them in a pan, slice them up for faster cooking time. 
  • For the oven version: do the same steps, keep the mushrooms whole, place them into a dish designed for the oven and place it into the oven for 25minutes. Take it out and turn the caps upside down, let them stay in the oven for 8 more minutes. Voila~

Trans*

trans-poster-900

I recently adopted the term trans*, it includes every transterm there is. It is really helpful when you talk to people that identifies as anything in the category. It shows that every single
term is important and not everyone is identifying with “transgender” only. Because it might seem like it now when a lot of people are coming forward with being transgendered, but a lot of people that adopt the term trans do not identify as transgender, so the asterik is there to acknowledge said people and not exclude anyone. Yay right!

It is very simple to use and it is not at all required to do so, but it can help people understand you a bit more and you can spread it to others, still not required to use it.

I have very weird moods overall lately, probably ties in with the sleeping pattern, or in my case not sleeping. At some things people write or say I can end up in an angry little ball and just close myself off to those people and keep on getting irritated while playing with/talking to them. Not gonna go deeper into it, don’t really want to have whole confrontation talk. Because I am a coward and tired of having to argue against others’ inconsiderance while they demand your considerance. But if you are really intent on making people understand that you want a different pronoun used for you even if one outer aestethic forces the other noun around, then at least be considerate enough to use the pronouns wanted by other people, it can hurt your feelings and it can hurt others. You are not the exception…

I am in a very weird mood right now and it might taint my blogpost, so will stop it right here. Cyaaa~
