2021.09.27 00:50 Environmental-Put-87 DnD Wonderland Characters
Most of my connection to DND is in making characters for fun since finding a group is difficult with my schedule, but I have fun making PCs that I might one day actually play. With the new Witchlight book, the harengons gave me an idea for a white rabbit character inspired by Alice in Wonderland, and then I just couldn’t stop making characters in that theme. I’m sure Alice in Wonderland homebrews have already been made in excess, but nonetheless here’s my take on some characters that might be found in such a setting. It’s not really a fully fledged adventure, but moreso character options with some trappings of a homebrew world. Anyways, because I had gone through all the effort of thinking these up, I figure someone might as well get some use out of them. Hopefully someone might enjoy using them to make an adventure, or modifying any of the character’s/factions for their own homebrew world. I’m also interested in hearing other takes on these characters, as I’m sure they might differ greatly from mine.
\I recognize that a lot of the fun in DND is creating your own, original PC’s, but I couldn’t help but feel a lot of the character’s in the book would be fun to play. If you use any of this material, they could just as easily be NPC’s and could also very easily be changed to suit your player’s own interests/play styles. Take them or leave them as PC options, or use them for inspiration.*
Alice/Alex-Any Class Human: I hesitated to make Alice a player character option because I wanted to avoid creating main character syndrome in one of the PCs. But instead of thinking of this PC option as a "main character," think of them instead as a character with no previous allegiances or connections to any of the factions, unlike the other PC options which may already have those connections. Much like the Alice in the book, this PC is an outsider (but not like from another plane, more like from a small village, and feels a call to adventure, but if you like the other plane route, go for it).
White Rabbit-Clockwork Soul Sorcerer Harengon: A Courier of the White Queen sent out to forward her interest’s in the adventuring world. Not antagonistic to the Hatter’s forces, but suspicious (A lot of the information on factions can be found in the NPC section). I went with Clockwork Soul because the imagery was perfect, but they could easily be an Oath of the Crown Paladin, or anything else you might want.
March Hare-Harengon Eldritch Knight Fighter: A member of the Hatter Faction, loyal to the Hatter, and fiercely brave in battle. I could also see this character easily being a barbarian or somwthing else, but again, feel free to make the character your own.
Dormouse-Arcane Trickster Rogue: Loyal to the Hatter, I went with a rogue because it sounded like a fun/necessary option. I didn’t specify a race because as far as I know there’s no official mouse race, so this character could be a homebrew race, or just as easily a gnome or halfling with the nickname mouse (for being quiet and small and rogue-like).
Tweedle Dee-Dwarf Wild Magic Barabrian: I could see Tweedle Dee and Dum being loyal to the Hatter, the Duchess, the White Queen, or no one at all. I think if you had two players that work well with eachother, it could be fun for them to play the brothers, or one could easily be a missing npc for easy character motivation. I went with dwarves because of their rotundness, and I think it would be funny if they were dwaves with no beards for no explainable reason. I chose barbarian because of their quickness to anger in the original stories, and wild magic because it sounded fun. Feel free to go in a different direction though.
Tweedle Dum-Dwarf Wild Magic Barbarian: same as Tweedle-Dee, but with a different name. If you'd like them to be different classes however, I see no problem with that.
Mock Turtle-Transmutation Wizard Tortle: I admit this character as a PC might be a bit of a strange choice, but Tortle’s exist, and I wanted to have a character that could be loyal to the Duchess. I also feel you could nix that, and have the character loyal to no one, or the Hatter, or one of the queens. Also, this character could just as easily be an NPC. I chose Wizard because most of his dialogue in the book revolves around school and I wanted a Wizard option, but I can see an argument for any class you want. I chose transmutation because the mock turtle is a weird amalgamation of different creatures, and I wanted transformation to be a part of the character’s MO. I understand the school of Transmutation isn’t the most popular, and I also recognize there are other subclasses such as the Moon Druid and Beast Barbarian that might emphasize the mock turtle’s hybrid nature better. Feel free to change this one up as much as you want.
Cheshire Cat-Shadow Sorcerer Tabaxi: I can see the Cheshire Cat as either an NPC or PC, because I almost guarantee there would be a player who would want to play them, but I can see a DM really wanting to roleplay the character as an NPC as well. As far as loyalty, I would argue the character would be loyal to the Hatter (something like a second in command if an NPC), but I could equally see the character having loyalty to no one but themself. I chose Shadow Sorcerer for the imagery, but I think any subclass that plays on creative movement, or immateriality would work just fine. Feel free to use Way of Shadow Monk, Echo Knight, fey Wanderer Ranger, or any other subclass you feel fits. I went with Tabaxi because cat, but feel free to change it up, as an NPC you could even make it a powerful creature of some kind.
\I use good, neutral, and evil loosely here. Alignments are often debated, and I feel even some of the people that argue for them see them as more guidelines than strict rules, the classification is more to highlight potential allies and antagonists.*
White Queen-High Elf/Human Divine Soul Sorcerer: The Monarch and leader of the “Lawful Good” faction. Sister or Cousin to the Red Queen, and rightful heir to the kingdom of Wunderland (I am 100% not committed to this name, and you don’t have to be either, it’s very on the nose, but I didn’t want to put too much effort in coming up with an alternative). I see this character as a fair and good monarch, but a monarch just the same, with all the moral complexities of any monarch system in any real or fantasy setting.
White King-High Elf/Human Battlemaster Fighter: Husband to the White Queen, and lord commander of the Wunderland Army. Primarily serves as a strategist, but it would be a mistake to underestimate how capable he can be on the battlefield.
Mad Hatter-Wild Magic SorcereArcane Trickster Rogue: Leader of the “chaotic good” faction. I favor the wild magic Sorcerer approach, but I know that’s a controversial class. I also thought Rogue could be a fun option, but really there’s no wrong answer. Do what you want with him, and have fun. Also, any race would work, so go nuts. Before the Red Queen’s rise to power, he led a resistance against the power of the monarchy, but recognizes the threat that is the Red Queen and is now an uneasy Ally of the White Queen. A fair and good leader, but don’t ignore the moral complexities of certain freedom fighters or anarchists (not necessarily an anarchist, but that is an option).
Cheshire Cat: See PC option, and change accordingly to suit an NPC
Duchess: I included the Duchess to have a more dynamic/organic faction. The Duchess is the Lady of a small, but powerful fiefdom. Her loyalty is with the people of her region. Depending on the actions of the PCs she could be swayed toward the White Queen, the Hatter, a powerful faction of her own, or even the Red Queen if she feels it’s the best choice for her people (out of fear of harm or a desire for power). I didn’t have an idea for her class, so have fun doing whatever you wanted with the character.
Cook-Artillerist Artificer: Loyal servant to the duchess and a powerful potential ally/enemy of the PCs. I went with artillerist because pepper gun, but fighter, Crown Paladin, or several others could be equally good or better options for your adventure.
Mock Turtle: See PC option, and change accordingly to suit an NPC
Caterpillar-Divination Wizard: No idea what this character would be. Could even be a dragon (I’m thinking Wyrm, because Caterpillar->Worm->Wyrm), but any powerful creature could work. Not loyal to anyone, is more of an information broker. Could be an ally or enemy of the PCs depending on their actions. The Caterpillars motivations are mysterious/I couldn’t think of anything good. Have fun making your own if you feel they would even comprehensible to a mortal mind.
Red Queen-High Elf/Human SorcerePact of the Fiend Warlock: Cousin or sister to the White Queen that wanted the power of the Monarchy for herself. Made a pact with a demon, or is a powerful Sorcerer in her own right, she gained a following and declared herself the rightful monarch of Wunderland. Perhaps she is truly evil, wanting nothing but power, or subject to/driven mad by the whims of the fiend that controls her, or perhaps she truly is the rightful heir to the throne, but was unfairly robbed of her title. No matter her motivations, her methods are cruel and she is a threat to the peace of the kingdom.
Red King-High Elf/Human Fighter: Husband to the Red Queen, and commander of her armys. I chose a fighter, but he could easily be a barbarian, a dark mage of some kind, or a Paladin serving some great evil. Extremely capable in a fight, and loyal to the queen; Either out of devotion, fear, or some other magical means of control.
Executioner-Oathbreaker Paladin: Loyal follower of the Queen, sent out to do her dark bidding when no one else can. I like the idea of an oathbreaker paladin, but there are many other options as well.
Carpenter-Human: An early villain for the PCs. Partner to the Walrus. (I see the Carpenter being gaunt and wiry, while the Walrus is portly). Not necessarily loyal to the Red Queen, but more likely a mercenary or bandit with a small following, causing problems in a war-torn Wunderland. Perhaps defeating them is how the PCs gain audience with the White Queen and/or Hatter and begin the greater part of their adventure, or is the first mission they are given by those characters. Swashbuckler Rogue, fighter, or an evil mage of some kind are all good options. Possibly a goblin, gnome, or human, but really anything would work. (Maybe if one is left alive/escapes, a mid adventure revenge plot could be a fun diversion/complicating factor)
Walrus-Human: An early villian for the PCs. Partner to the Carpenter. (I see the Walrus being Portly, while the Carpenter is gaunt and wiry). Not necessarily loyal to the Red Queen, but more likely a mercenary or bandit with a small following, causing problems in a war-torn Wunderland. Perhaps defeating them is how the PCs gain audience with the White Queen and/or Hatter and begin the greater part of their adventure, or is the first mission they are given by those characters. Barbarian, fighter, or an evil mage of some kind are all good options. Possibly a goblin, dwarf, or human, but really anything would work. (Maybe if one is left alive/escapes, a mid adventure revenge plot could be a fun diversion/complicating factor)
BBEG behind the BBE Queen: If you create an adventure with these characters, you could easily use the queen as your BBEG, but if you would like a longer campaign, or a larger threat than a high level caster, you could have a demon, fey, or dragon behind the scenes directly in charge of the Red Queen, or pulling the strings behind all the factions. Perhaps the Red Queen herself becomes more than just a high level caster, instead aspiring to lichdom. I don’t have any solid ideas for what kind of character this might manifest itself as, so feel free to pick or create your own if you’d like a campaign of a grander scale.
Jabberwocky: An actual jabberwocky from the Witchlight book, or a chromatic dragon (I think either red or white depending on how difficult you’d like the encounter to be) loyal to the Red Queen. Either a gift from the Red Queen’s patron, or a creature bent to her will through magical means (I don’t see a dragon willingly serving another person, evil or not). It could also potentially be the patron of the Red Queen if you wanted to go that route.
Bandersnatch: I’m not sure what creature this would be, as I don’t think there’s an official 5e bandersnatch, so have fun deciding what it would be, or find one from a homebrew. Possibly a creature loyal to the Red Queen or the Duchess, but I think it would be just as fun as a wild beast the players encounter on a side quest of some kind. (Guarding the vorpal blade/other magical item, or blocking their path to an important location, or a kill quest given by a village under its attack, or a random encounter wherever you’d like).
Gryphon, Lion, Unicorn: These are other creatures present in the Wonderland books, and potential encounters for the players. The Gryphon is associated with the red queen and the mock turtle in the book. So a potential creature of the Duchess or Red Queen, or just wild and somewhat common in the adventuring world. The Lion and the Unicorn are interesting options. In the book they are fighting over the White King's Crown, and could similarly be creatures guarding the White Crown, a magical object needed to defeat the Red Queen. In the book, they are both associated with the White King, but could just as easily be counterparts on the red and white sides of the conflict (although be careful with that, as the characters traditionally represent an English/Scottish rivalry, and deciding to make one evil could be problematic). They could also just be wild beasts present in the world for the players to encounter. While you could use the official dnd unicorn statblock, homebrewing a legendary unicorn of some kind could be fun to increase the challenge, and the lion would likely have to be changed or borrow the statblock of another creature to be on equal footing with the unicorn. Have fun, as these are really just options for encounters, and there is no right direction for these creatures.

Some players cost 30 million… and they just warm the bench, then get sold on.
A world class manager costs 10 million a year max. Why don’t we offer extortionate wages to a worldie manager instead of paying extortionate fees for average players?

2021.09.27 00:50 Thatonepokemonleft My friend whom I am in love with is being controlled and she wants to get out because she is being controlled by her parents
Okay so here's the situation I (20) have been in love with this one girl since childhood and she is in love with me. She is (20) and her parents forced her to do things that she didn't want to do. And she also just wants to go somewhere outside her state when I first heard about this it made me pissed. Parents forcing a adult to do something they don't want to is just worng and should be illegal in my opinion. Currently I am studying to get my driver's license because I am over the age to get a permit for my state. She wants to be a writer and I support her all the way. Were not official boyfriend and girlfriend yet. Some how I want to get her out of there but she cant be alone with a boy because of what her ex did I wont go into details but let's just say it wasn't a good situation. Her parents wont let her go even though she is an adult and can make her own decisions but her mother knows me and we just want to be together. It just makes me frustrated that her parents just don't understand that she can make her own decisions. Her parents want her to be in college for at least two years on multiple occasions she tried to say no but her parents wont bugged. If her mom finds out that she wants to drop out than her mom would be pissed. And if I take her away than that might ruin her relationship with her parents. Reddit I know that I may sound like an asshole if I do that but we want to live with each other and get married later on in life. Reddit I don't know how I can help her in this situation. She's failing her class and she just wants to drop out. I feel for her but I got a feeling that her mom won't let her go even if it is with me witch she knows that I WOULD NOT DO ANYTHING TO HURT HER. Is there anything I can do or do I just have to ride this out for the time being.

2021.09.27 00:50 WARPzone_ Watercooled 3080 Pump speed
I recently got a MSI Sea Hawk 3080 for a pretty good deal (what even is that anymore?).
The Card performs amazing and apart from not breaching 62 degrees C the fans don't even spin up in half my games. I love it. But the pump, by god MSI why would you do this. It runs on 100% all the time, even on desktop. It's loud and whiny and it haunts my dreams and as far as I can tell, there really isn't a way to control this in software and it definitively doesn't follow any kind of curve like a fan would.
Now, looking for a fix I found two potential solutions:
This guy connected the pump to his mainboard fan header to be able to control it in bios, is this a bad idea? In theory this sounds like an okay solution, but I would rather not have to open my card up if I can. Also, what is the small connector on the graphics card pcb called? I can seemingly only find the adapter with the male/female the wrong way around.
Is it possible to get into the 3080 bios and set the pump level to something lower? I really don't need it to follow a curve, just setting it to like 50% would be massively quieter and i have so much thermal headroom I'm not worried about temps.
Thanks so much for reading and your help :)

Não sei se isso é uma fase pq sou jovem ou se realmente não sou cis mas não acho que tenho algum para desabafar a não ser um estranho pois não quero dizes nada aos meus pais, e tenho uma amiga que aceita pessoas lgbt e respeita as pessoas, mas não quero que o jeito que ela me olhe mude não quero que o clima fique estranho. Um dia disse que queria contar algo pra ela(este assunto) e ela disse que tudo bem não dizer agora e que eu devia estar confortável em dizer, estáva conversando com ela pelo computador pois meu celular pifou messes atrás e meu notebook desligou na hora que tomei coragem para conversar, achei que foi mensagem do destino hahahha, mas sinto que essa coragem não está vindo.... Acho que desabafar aqui vai me fazer um pouco melhor.

I’m a 21F, and my fiancé is coming to visit me for the first time in a while, due to his COVID19 diagnosis, and the various state laws that have caused us to be unable to see each other. We are in different states until I finish college. I just moved into a new apartment, & he will be coming to spend time with me as well as catch a football game with his friends.
I am nervous, because I’m not the best at hosting guests, and he will be the first person to see my new place. I’m very private, and shy naturally. I am also nervous because he makes me nervous, like gives me butterflies at the thought of him. If this is the wrong place for this post, please let me know where I can place it.
What are some tips and advice that you all could give me to make his time visiting me run smoothly?
