Missing 2 cards and a relic after 455 hours?
2023.05.31 02:48 WhoElseButQuagmire11 Missing 2 cards and a relic after 455 hours?
One of the cards, im pretty sure is apparition? The blue hand that gives intangible.
The relic however is tied to the second card and its an event relic which gives you a curse. The curse is either a star(unless that's a place holder) and the beta art is Ironclad with a pride of Lions. How the hell have I gone this long without getting this relic? There must be an event I absolutely hate. A15 with Ironclad, A19 with Silent, A12 with Defect and A19 with The watcher and I've never once encountered this relic. Help would be appreciated.
Side note: the beta card art for Doubt, decay and regret(hilarious that they understood before we did) are hilarious! Please suss them out. On the other side of the coin, the parasite card art is probably more sweet than the original.
Edit: unless it's just a placeholder the relic kind of looks like a star. It's an event one so it's not black star or shuriken.

2023.05.31 02:41 TaranMatharu From Theory Updated - A game of Tarot between an accused witch and a Beothuk deity in Newfoundland during John Cabot's lost expedition of 1498.
| || | submitted by TaranMatharu to FromTVEpix [link] [comments]
FROM is a game
between an accused witch
and a Beothuk demon
, recreating an event during the Age of Exploration
by John Cabot
's lost expedition of 1498
. The event ended before 1506
(Tabitha's tower’s earliest date). Other than the Vinland Vikings
, Cabot is the only European
to reach mainland America
before then. Cabot's ships arriving / Tabitha's dream's dates The Origin Event:
Cabot’s ship (The Matthew
) is marooned in Newfoundland (where Cabot had visited before, and was supposed to return to in 1498). The explorers shelter in the Vinland Viking ruins remaining there (The Church lodge and Stone Circle). They land in Boyd’s Cove
(where most archaeological artefacts of the Beothuk have been found).
They encounter the now tragically extinct native Beothuk
people (who painted themselves in red ochres
, as with the red stick figures in the cave paintings). The explorers wear Tudor clothing
with ruffs, like Ellis’s mysterious painting. https://preview.redd.it/7h3ods6vm33b1.png?width=1194&format=png&auto=webp&s=7b277ea008061fbeeb3e10ad3f1b3bd9aa7a99c7
Cabot or one of his men bond with a woman
who was smuggled aboard and they have a son (Mirrored by Fatima's pregnancy). As things get worse, this woman is accused of being a Witch
at the explorer’s camp. The Witch
Historically, it is undeniable that native Newfoundland Beothuk people suffered numerous atrocities at the hands of future settlers, and in similar fashion, the explorers may have attacked
the Beothuk. The reason for the lack
may be the attempted conversion of the Beothuk by the friar who accompanied Cabot. Starvation
begins and Winter
approaches, just as Fromland does in Season 2, with the food shortage
and as with the trees changing in Fromland.
The witch is imprisoned in a cave
(the cave with the talismans) while crows
circle above. Cabot keeps her son from her. The Witch's prison, where Boyd found the talismans / An adult and child
Explorers that speak of mutiny have their tongues cut out
(that, or blasphemy, another possible reason for tongue removal). The tongues are cooked in a stew (the cauldron
with the tongues, Sarah cutting Toby’s tongue, Kevin’s tongue being bitten off), as the explorers turn to cannibalism. They might also be cooked worms, eaten due to starvation. The cauldrons
Later, the explorers finish repairing their ships, and sail away, leaving the Witch trapped alone in the cave, the explorers too superstitious to bring or kill her. They leave her the game
(the only card game to exist in 1500, an exclusively Italian game at the time, brought by Cabot, an Italian). In despair, she calls out to any Gods who will listen. She is answered by the deities of the Beothuk
. The Mythos:
The long extinct Beothuk religion is only known from a fragment of text
. The key aspects are worship of the Moon
, the Sun
, fear of a devilish Man in Black
, a Spirit World
and a Sea Monster
have souls, and birds carry the souls of the dead
. Only a few hundred Beothuk words are known. The word for tree in Beothuk is “Annoouee
” and some native american languages insert a K to pluralise words. “Annkoouee
” means “the trees”.
The Witch makes a deal
with the Beothuk demon/devil
, the Man in Black
for the return of her son. Cabot
and the other explorers become the first
of Fromland’s victims
. The Man in Black has a “Sea Monster
” which the showrunners represent as a native Newfoundland Lion’s Mane Jellyfish
which happens to be RED
. (the location where the Viking ruins were found was called Jellyfish Cove
Red Jellyfish / Beothuk game-pieces / Cave painting pattern. The Game
This deal/bet between the Witch
and the Beothuk gods
involves a game using the Tarot cards, but one with invented rules. The Witch, the boy and the explorers are all sucked into Fromland to play. Every member of Fromily is assigned a Tarot card to represent. Meagan's card game / Jade flashing a pack of cards for no reason / a person trapped in a card / the cards laid out and the people they represent More card game hints The Players
The game still requires four players
, so the son is divided
in two, creating a Moon version (Boy in White, two dogs
on the moon Tarot card) and a Sun version. https://preview.redd.it/dk70omozn33b1.png?width=986&format=png&auto=webp&s=5d83e110eba8dbd3f1837cef5c850be1e9b3dd2b Here the suitcases and curtains lay out the mother and her twin boys and their respective colour-coding (moon = blue, sun = yellow, witch = pink). The twin smaller wheels, the split son, and the mother the large wheel. The flapping cloth, the tentacled representation of the Man in Black’s monster. The sculpture is an obvious clue. Above here, we see the four players, (clue highlighted by a book called Crumbs in the same scene): the cables the tentacular demon and his monster, the scarf is the mother (with the witch stick figure and the pink coding) and the headphones the black and white sides of the boy (the sun and the moon)
The “witch” is kept apart from her son(s), (“I want to see my son!” Mr Tien, hearing voices in episode 1), and has some ulterior goal
within the game to reunite her sons, as does the MiB. The two sides, with the yellow light (sun - trapped underground?) and unlit light (moon - above, free to roam?). A white vessel remains on the table, despite blocking the shot. That is a vessel to represent the mothewitch. The Rules:
The witch and the devil appear to take turns picking people (who are about to die: drunk driver, (Jade, Donna), or by suicide (Khatri), or from disease (Tilly)) from the real world. Black tendrils picking cars off the road drawing
This game is played on a game-board (see chequered
shirts and floors everywhere, chess board references, and the squares on the cave painting).
Both Witch and Devil appear to be influencing
Fromily in one direction or another. The Devil with his worms
on Sarah and Boyd (see Boyd dousing his torch the same way it is pointed down on the devil’s tarot card, and the chained man represented by Martin on the same card), and the Witch with her visions
on Tabitha and Jade. Boyd is being spoken to by the Man in Black
in the form of Khatri
, who encourages him to protect Sara, and seems pretty smug when he thinks Boyd is about to succumb to the worms (and wears a black cardigan
for the first time).
While Jade sees the symbol as scary, the Witch is actually giving him clues
in his quest to understand Fromland. It’s also possible that the “sun” side was keeping Martin captive
(see the sun-symbol
as the winch), and the Boy in White is bad
and sent Boyd there to free him.
The rules of the game seem to be related to the gathering of lost items from their past that are anchoring
them to this place (see Kristi’s rock, the anchors on the talismans, the wall in the church and Martin’s tattoo). Anchors
Tabitha’s is the suitcase/dress, Jim’s is the bracelet, Victor’s is the dummy (his mother might have been a travelling entertainer, doing ventriloquism and playing violin). The Monsters have their own “anchors” (see the junk in the cave, the music box) and are attempting to steal
anchors that are associated with current Fromily.
Throughout the series, we see people and items with blue, yellow and less often, pink/red. Ethan and Boyd, in particular, are almost always in yellow when they’re on walkabout. This seems to suggest that it is how Fromily react to each situation that aligns them with a colour
, and in certain scenes everyone wears blue in particular. It seems if Fromily act as the explorers did, (nobody standing up for Sarah, who is the “witch” in this scene), https://preview.redd.it/4podi2v1p33b1.png?width=990&format=png&auto=webp&s=45db065755a1c1883d78fee1f0e463300bb9819d
When fighting over food
(see the scene at the diner) or turn on each other
, there is often blue
. When they act heroically
, they tend to wear yellow. It is rare to see a resident that is not wearing one of these three colours - occasionally one will wear black
In order to escape Fromland and end the game, Fromily must gather their tethered items and also reunite the boy in white with his sun counterpart (as demonstrated on the moon and sun converging on the exit sign). The Way Out - reuniting the Sun and the Moon (the Square and the Circle) The Monsters:
Everyone who arrives in Fromland must suffer
as the Beothuk did. The crows
are turned into Monsters to punish
new arrivals, which is why they have a second-eyelid
(as seen in the Kevin death scene) and seem interested in human items and their own reflection. They fly around as crows during the day, watching Fromily and learning
their names. Victor’s Timeline
Victor experiences a gap of 40ish
years – (1978-2018).
This gap is very confusing, as we have other dates that are quite close to one another and don’t seem to pause that long. We’ve been led to believe by Victor that someone betrayed them to the monsters, and told them all their hiding places. There are two suspects – Victor’s mother, who knew the exact night for Victor to hide somewhere new, or Christopher, who stopped smiling and was seeing the symbol.
Given the pre-existing mythology of a mother
doing a deal
to save her son, can we assume that Victor’s mother made her own deal - just like Sarah was trying to make for her brother? I have a feeling Victor’s mother, Victor and Christopher were kept alive by the sympathetic witch (just look at the stars). Victor seems to have seen her in person before too based on his drawings.
The witch revealed their situation and Victor’s mother went to the Devil and agreed to betray
everyone if he would just let her son live a full life (just like Sarah is “making a deal”). The Boy in White kept Victor alive, as agreed, until he could fend for himself. Christopher survived thanks to the Witch and went to live in the Lighthouse - he’s the Radio Voice
Finally, Victor’s mother’s deal has expired. The game began again, in 2018…and it’s going to end in 2022
, one way or another.

Unresolved questions: Why a ballerina?
Presumably, the Devil has cards already under his control via worms, and uses them to possess people. Why the USA?
Cabot came to claim new land for England and Heny VII - perhaps a loose understanding of what this land would become assigned it as the USA. Alternatively, the “game” could have evolved later in a yet to be revealed way, one that answers why the 1950s clothing and town too. Why 1950s themes?
We can presume perhaps that the Deities that rule Fromland periodically update the town and the monsters' appearances based on an unknown quantity that is yet to be revealed. Why the Civil War soldiers?
The Witch is revealing to Jade that Jim is the Hanged Man, using a flashback from a previous cycle. What’s with the spiders?
It is a natural phenomenon where spiders climb into the trees to escape floods, covering them in webs. This is a foreshadowing of an upcoming flood.
It seems that much of the above could be explained by ANOTHER town in another part of Fromland, simultaneously occurring in the 1950s. Perhaps in this place, the roles are reversed, Fromily are the monsters and the Monsters the townsfolk (like the mirrored Sun-boy and Moon-boy). You can get there by travelling deep underground, until you're upsidedown (kind of like the From opening credits). This is where the Ballerina
resides, as well as most of the "anchor" items. Side Note
The expeditions of the Corte-Real
brothers that disappeared in 1501
respectively may also be involved, and precipitated the food shortage and violence. If they are, they would have arrived in Newfoundland together
- this is represented by the two cars
coming at the same time (this happened in both Victor's time, and the Matthews' time), and the two additional ships in the cave painting. Sara’s voices blame the people in the two cars
for everyone dying - a hint at the origin story of the brothers’ two ships
. This aligns with Beothuk mythology that states the first explorers to arrive in Newfoundland were good
, and the second set bad
. THANKS FOR READING! I am probably very wrong, but that's my best attempt at stitching together all the clues in the show. No worries if you disagree, it's just for fun.

2023.05.31 02:22 CopOnDrop Amex Assigned Preset Spending Limit After FR (Business Blue Plus)
I just had a question, and was hoping for a solid answer. A couple months ago I had a financial review done on my Business Blue Plus card. Afterwards I was placed a preset spending limit. At the end of the document that was sent to me it stated "Please understand that this limit is not permanent and may change as we continue to evaluate your account and your overall credit profile."
So my question is will this go away on it's own? Or is it there on that card forever? And will making multiple large sum payments a month increase my chances of getting the preset limit removed?
To clarify the preset limit was assigned to the expanded buying power, it hasn't changed the actual credit limit.
I would love some clarity, as Amex reps keep telling me different things. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as well.

Let me start my story by telling you something about me, the most important thing, in fact: I find things, and I fix them. That’s who I am. If you don’t know that, you don’t know me.
I’m a second-generation auto mechanic, born-and-bred. I’ve been repairing cars since before Ford Pintos were blowing up, when cars were made of steel and Route 66 wasn’t just something for the cartoons. These days I’m fortunate enough to own a shop downtown between two of those chain coffee places. It’s small, sure, but it has a reputation for saving cars so far-gone no one else will even touch ‘em. So if you live in the area, and you’ve ever been stuck with the sourest of lemons, or maybe your kid drove your minivan into the pool, we just might have crossed paths, you and I.
That reputation is what led to me getting a phone call from a guy I’d never met, saying he had something that might interest me. His name was Burt and he’d apparently just purchased a piece of property that sat unowned for the better part of twenty years. I knew of the area he was talking about. It’s out in the hills, where there isn’t much to look at. Most of the land there went to weed years ago; acres and acres of old woods and burnt-down barns just waiting for nobody in particular to see the value in them. And, well, it seems Burt was that nobody in particular.
I honestly didn’t know what Burt’s purchase had to do with me, and told him just that, figuring he must have had the wrong number. But the next words out of his mouth told me he knew exactly who he was talking to.
Apparently when old Burt started walking around his new property, digging around in the dirt, so to speak, he made an interesting discovery. So interesting, in fact, that it got me to grab my keys, hop in my truck, and drive up into the hills without so much as a pause to wash my hands.
Some things, you see, don’t wait for a man to look presentable.
As I drove up into the hills to meet Burt, I started to think about my father and the drives he used to take me on. He liked to get a feel for whichever car he was working on, and those drives, they always ended with a detour into the hills. ‘Nothing tests a vehicle like elevation,’ he used to say, and I have to admit, I still agree with that statement. All those long inclines, sharp turns and fast descents- not to mention the occasional slam on the brakes- really put a car through its paces.
Dad knew a thing or two about cars, even if he knew nothing about how to raise a family.
Other than maybe a slight fear of commitment, the main thing I got from my father was a passion for restoring old cars in my spare time. It’s a hobby of mine, and I do it in the garage at my house. I’m especially a sucker for rare cars, and the rarer the better. That little hobby of mine, more so than my day business, was why I ended up driving out to the middle of nowhere with dirty hands and a head full of ideas.
The road up was just as long and winding as I remembered. I almost missed the entrance for the property, a hidden driveway marked with little more than a broken mailbox and a rotting signpost. The private road got smaller and smaller by the minute until I swore the trees were going to swallow me whole and spit the bones back out.
When I finally reached what could pass for a clearing, a guy with a face like a junkyard dog was waiting for me next to the newest, cleanest Ford pick-up I’d seen outside of a dealership. He introduced himself to me as Eddie, an associate of old Burt. I told him I’d been expecting to meet Burt himself, but Eddie explained that Burt didn’t like to meet new people, and rarely came out in the cold weather. It was a bit raw, I had to admit, so I dropped the whole thing and let Eddie get down to the business at hand.
We left our cars behind and Eddie led me into the woods, where the walking was slow-going on account of the overgrowth of vines and dead branches. I’m not one to spook easily, but the more we walked the creepier those woods got, until I was fairly sure Eddie was going to use that French Mastiff face of his to tear my throat out. But just when I was thinking about turning back and saying screw it to the whole thing, I caught sight of what we’d come for.
The very first car I saw was a white, 1974 Pontiac Trans-Am. It was missing its door and tires, and it was buried under a layer of dead vines, but the body shape was unmistakable. Under the rust I could even see what was left of the telltale Firebird emblazoned across its hood in blue.
I couldn’t believe a car like that was just sitting out in the middle of the woods, waiting for anyone to come along and find it. As I got closer, though, I saw just how bad the condition of the car was. The insides were rotted out from rain and mold, and the floor was so eaten up by rust it was ready to fall out.
Before my brain could process the loss of such a beautiful machine, I caught sight of another car. This one was a Datsun 210 with a tree growing right through the hole where its trunk used to be. Wet leaves and newspaper filled the back seat, and the dashboard was an abandoned nest that crawled with leggy insects.
Old Burt hadn’t been pulling my leg: those woods were a graveyard for abandoned cars. From what I could tell, about three acres of woods were absolutely littered with the corpses of old autos. Some were in pieces, most were covered in dead leaves and rust and all the other things that happen when anything is left outside for years and years, but they were there. The sight of so many classic cars in one place, virtually unknown to anyone, both excited and saddened me.
For close to an hour I walked around random piles of tires and glass to stare at rusted-out Range Rovers and Jeeps with their headlights hanging out like popped eyeballs. Finally, like I’d woken up from a spell, I asked Eddie what Burt expected from me. And that’s when he told me the strangest, most interesting offer he could have told me in that moment.
He said if I could make every, single one of those cars disappear in three day’s time, at no cost to old Burt, I could keep them.
The words nearly knocked me off my feet. I’d have to call in every favor to every salvage yard and tow truck operator I knew, but it was possible. Still, nearly all of the cars I’d seen were beyond repair, even for a guy like me. At most I saw some parts that could be salvaged. Maybe a few of the newer, less damaged ones could be saved. I knew a few guys in my circle who might be interested, and I figured if I played my cards right I could make a few bucks out of the deal to boot- or at least land a good trade or two. Still, there weren’t any cars that I was interested in for myself.
Until, at the edge of the property, tucked away in a spot I’d nearly overlooked, I saw it. It was as if I’d been drawn there. Like I was meant to find it.
The car was familiar-looking, yet like nothing I’d ever seen. Cross a Chevelle Malibu Classic SE with the modern retro feel of the ‘97 Plymouth Prowler, add the large rear spoiler and flared wheel arches of a ‘99 Nissan Skyline GT-R, and you still won’t come close. It looked like something one of the big three manufacturers had made and yet I’d never seen or heard of its like ever before. It had no logos, no hood ornament, no identification of any kind. I practically ran around to the back of it to look for a name, a logo, something to identify it, tripping over hidden rocks and broken glass to do it.
But there was nothing. Nothing to betray the make and mark of the strange car in front of me. I even asked Eddie if he knew what it was. He only shrugged, clearly wanting to wrap up our little outdoor meeting. I half-heartedly agreed. It was later than I’d realized. Between the dwindling sun and the discovery I’d made, I’d started to get a chill I couldn’t shake. I had a bad tooth I’d been neglecting, and even that was starting to hurt from the cold.
So I agreed to Burt’s deal. I shook Eddie’s hand on it and got out of there, giving one last glance at the strange car in the woods on the way out.
The next day, after making more phone calls than a politician on election night, a swarm of flatbeds, wheel-lifts and salvage trucks descended on those woods. For two days they scooped out every piece of metal and glass in the place, while I oversaw the operation like a choir conductor from hell. I directed trucks this way and cutting crews that way. They snipped and cut and tore out every dead tree standing in the way so the truck crews could do the rest. I even got in there myself with the old chainsaw when it was needed.
It was an exhausting two days, but I managed to keep my word to Burt and clear every abandoned car off his property with about an hour to spare. Some of the cars went to the junkyard, others to various garages I’d made arrangements with.
I was dead on my feet by the time I got home. I was ready for a shower and a bed, in what order I wasn’t sure. And yet a crackle of energy went through me when I saw what had been dropped off in my garage.
My mystery car. Without the shadows of the woods hiding it, I could see it had been painted silver before the rust took over. It had been a fast sucker once, like a bullet to a werewolf’s chest. That had been a long time ago, and yet I sensed there was still some life in the old girl. I wanted so badly to start digging around under the hood, to see what I could find out, but my legs were ready to collapse and my eyes could barely focus. Intending to wake up early and hit the garage, I stumbled off to bed.
You know that feeling you get when you realize someone’s been talking to you for the past minute, thinking you’ve been listening, and you only just figured it out?
That’s the feeling I woke up to.
I sat straight up like a vampire rising from his coffin. My bedroom was still dark, which meant it was the middle of the night. In my half-sleep I tried to make out the clock on my nightstand but couldn’t read the numbers, so I fumbled for my glasses and shoved them on. It was just past two in the morning: way too early, even for me. No way was I getting up, strange feeling or no.
I was about to take my glasses off and lay back down when I heard the reason I’d woken up.
A man was in my room, whispering in the dark. I lunged across my bed and turned on the lamp, nearly knocking it over. I didn’t have a weapon, but if I could see the intruder I could do something about it. I spun back, back to the whispering, to see who it was, to shout at them or jump on them, whatever I had to do to save my life from the psycho in my bedroom.
But the room was empty. Just me and a pounding heart.
I was so confused, I jumped out of bed and tore around the room, making sure no one was hiding, but I didn’t find anyone. I was alone.
Then I heard it again, and I knew: the whispers were coming from down the hall.
With bare feet I followed it, trying to make out what it was saying, but it was too low to understand. I grabbed a knife as I passed through the kitchen and held it in front of me with sweat beading on my face despite how cold I kept the house.
I followed the whispering to the garage. The overhead light flickered on, lighting up the strange car in my garage. In my half-sleep, half-terror I’d nearly forgotten about it. But there it was, like a bear hibernating in its cave, waiting for the end of winter. It felt alive somehow. Not dead, just asleep and dreaming.
And it was whispering.
I knew how crazy that sounded, how crazy that was, but I swallowed hard and approached the car, knife first. The blade shook in front of me. The whispering got louder the closer I got, and yet I still couldn’t understand the words it was saying. Was someone hiding inside the car? Had I inherited a homeless man when I’d had it towed to my house? If so I had to get him out of there. Get him help, sure, make sure he had a place to sleep, but he couldn’t stay in my garage, whispering through the night. No way.
With my free hand I yanked on the driver’s side door. It didn’t open. Rusted shut. I slowly walked around to the passenger side and yanked again. It opened.
The whispering was louder now, louder but not clearer, like an old television tuned between channels, like a frequency not being picked up, like a…
Like a radio.
The whispers were coming from the radio. I laughed under my breath, realizing how ridiculous I’d been. But then I remembered there was no way the radio could be working. The car wasn’t turned on. If it even had a battery under the hood, it was probably little more than a square pile of rust and battery acid.
I clutched the kitchen knife tight, and with the other hand I slowly reached out to turn the volume knob. I needed to know if the whispers were coming from the radio, and if they were, I needed to know what they were saying. My temple throbbed as the whispers grew louder and louder, louder and louder, louder and-
The moment my finger touched the knob, the whispers stopped.
I felt like I was going crazy. I looked around the inside of the car, noting the strong smell of mildew and animal with a tinge of rotten leather. Other than my own breath echoing back at me, it was silent.
No whispers. No nothing.
I went back to bed, but I barely slept.
The next day was the day I usually took off from the shop, which was a relief since I woke up almost as tired as when I’d gone to bed. As I ate my breakfast, the night before still sat fresh in my mind. But the more I went over it, the more I thought it had been a bad dream, brought on by exhaustion and an imagination run wild. I had to admit the mystery car sitting in my garage had gotten my mind racing faster than a Formula 1.
I’m the kind of guy who likes a simple explanation, something I can touch and feel and, yes, fix, so I started to think that I could have picked up some kind of rogue radio transmission from a trucker, or even a passing plane. The police scanner I owned in my younger days had certainly picked up its share of random broadcasts, and when it comes to working on junkers I’ve learned to expect the unexpected.
After I’d eaten my breakfast and downed my coffee I got right to work on the car. I wanted to clear the air of whatever had happened, and I was dying to see what that baby had going on under the hood. The mystery of who the hell had made the thing was still heavy on me.
But the enigma only deepened the more I looked. Under all that rust and dirt and oil I couldn’t find one damn mark that told me who’d made the car. I almost wanted to say it was a custom build, but the work was too precise, the system too well-planned out to be an after-market job.
I worked on it all day, so wrapped up in it I forgot to eat lunch. I ate dinner like a raccoon digging through a dumpster. Then I worked on it some more.
I was just crawling into bed when I heard it again.
This time I ignored it, hoping it would go away on its own. But it didn’t stop. Not until I got up, walked across my house, went into the garage, and touched the radio. Then, it stopped.
I decided right then and there not to go to the shop the next day. There was just too much work to be done.
I’d been working on the car for four days straight before I got it started up. Four days of stripping and cleaning and rebuilding. Four nights of whispering. I was even starting to hear it during the day, but low, barely audible, like a television playing somewhere in the house.
After I got the engine started, the first thing I did was pull my code reader down from my tool wall and hook it up to the dashboard input. I’d been pleasantly surprised to find an input on the car, even though I was fairly certain it had been built after '96. To my shock the screen filled up with a bunch of random trouble codes I’d never seen before, then went blank. I tried to get it powered up again but apparently the connection had completely overloaded the device.
I’d had the reader for years and it had never given me a problem. I put it down and got back to the car, deciding to stick to the old-fashioned way and get a feel for what was wrong with it. Just like dad used to do.
With my foot on the gas I revved the engine good. It sounded better than I’d expected, like a beast waking up from deep sleep. But there was also something rattling around under the hood, something loose knocking around inside the carburetor or possibly even the manifold.
I tried a few options, opening up this and that, until I narrowed it down to something completely unexpected: the transmission.
With considerable force I managed to open up the transmission, and sure enough I found something inside. Something dark and red. I pulled it out and studied it under the light. It looked like a small rock covered in old transmission fluid. How it got in there I didn’t have a clue. But I decided to clean it off and get a better look at it, in case it pointed to a bigger problem. As I walked it to the slop sink, I noticed the whispering, usually a dull static during the day, had started to grow louder. I could almost make out individual words now. But I ignored it and ran the small rock under the faucet, watching the dark red fluid swirl down the drain.
That was when I discovered something I wasn’t prepared for. The thing in my hand wasn’t a rock- it was a tooth.
A human tooth.
The whispers had grown so loud I could barely hear myself think, barely feel the disgust rising in the pit of my stomach. With the whispers practically shouting in my ear I dropped the tooth and it bounced and clattered inside the sink, coming to a rest near the edge of the drain.
The whispers grew quiet again. A dull roar tickling at the back of my skull. I stared at it, the tooth in the sink, the impossible tooth from the impossible car. I had the urge to throw it out. To get it out of my house and never see it again. But I didn’t do that. I couldn’t tell you why not.
Maybe because that meant touching it again.
Maybe something else.
Feeling like I should give the car a rest, I worked on getting my code reader working again, otherwise I’d have to run to the store and buy a new one. I changed out the batteries and gave it a good, solid whack. A few seconds later I was happy to see the screen turn on. I thought I’d have to do a factory reset to use it again but I was surprised to find it worked perfectly fine. Not only that, the trouble codes it had read off the car were still stored in its memory.
There were pages and pages of codes like I’d never seen in my life, more than I think are even in the tool’s programming. In fact I couldn’t find a single one of them anywhere in the manual. I figured they were probably just random numbers, and yet there was something strange about them, like they had a pattern to them. I dusted off my old computer and typed in the problem codes, figuring if I could get a better look at them I might be able to figure out their meaning. If not, I could at least print them out and show them to somebody who could.
After twenty minutes I’d barely made a dent in typing up all the codes. I gave up on the idea that I could copy them all. I pushed away from my computer and stood up, rubbing my eyes from the strain. Between the glare of the old screen and the noise in my ears, my head was killing me. It all felt so pointless. So inconsequential.
Just before I shut the computer down, I happened to glance one last time at the screen. And when I did, I noticed something that made my skin go cold.
The codes. The pattern. The numbers and letters and spaces between them. They were starting to form a face. A human face, with two eyes and a screaming-
I shut the computer down as fast as I could, then unplugged it to be safe. Then I marched to the garage and disconnected the radio, practically ripping it out of the car.
The whispers stopped.
The house was quiet.
But not for long.
For three days I told myself to get rid of that car, tow it out of my garage and dump it somewhere no one could find it. Maybe even drench it in gasoline and light a match. For three days I ignored the whispers and the doorbell and the phone calls from my shop asking when I was coming back. For three days I buried my head under the hood and worked and worked and worked.
On the fourth day, when the whispers from the radio had grown louder than my own thoughts, louder but still unclear, without words I could understand, I lost it. I threw my wrench at the tool wall, knocking down chisels and socket wrenches and a dozen other tools clattering to the ground. I pounded on my ears, cursing them, willing them to go deaf and stop hearing the whispers.
But they didn’t stop hearing. And the whispers didn’t stop. So I decided. I decided that if I couldn’t stop hearing them, I at least needed to know what they were saying.
I went back to the slop sink. The tooth was still there, perched near the edge of the drain. I’d prayed for it to slip down and wash away on its own but there it was, round and sharp and real as ever. So I picked it up, and the whispers grew louder. Clearer. But still not clear enough to hear. Not enough to make out what the radio was saying. To understand what it wanted from me. It was like a broken antenna, only tuning in half the frequency.
The garage was a mess. I was a mess. Rancid grease stains everywhere. A hole in my tool wall where the wrench had struck it, the ground littered with hammers and screwdrivers and …
Before I could talk myself out of it, I grabbed the pliers from the ground, shoved it onto my mouth, got a good hold of my bad tooth, and ripped it out. It was easier than I expected, but it still hurt, and it bled a lot. But I didn’t hesitate. I pushed the tooth I’d found in the transmission into its place.
The moment I did, it was as if everything came into focus. As if the radio was inside my skull. No, as if my skull was the radio, and I was the antenna. I could hear the transmission clear as day now, a man’s voice inside my head.
Whispering to me.
Telling me where to find the rest of him.
I told you all of this, not because I expect you to believe me, but because I’m about to walk out my door and do something I might not come back from. And if that’s the case, if I don’t return today or any other day from this thing I need to do, I want people to know why.
Because I find things. I find things and fix them. If you don’t know that, you don’t know me.

2023.05.31 02:06 duelmeharderdaddy What can I change to fit budget? Mainly for maximizing AI Like Stable Diffusion
Hello, Guys, looking to make a beast of a machine to handle AI content creation for which will mostly be done in Stable Diffusion + more for the current foreseeable future.

Keep in mind that it will require a lot of GPU, VRAM, Good airflow, and needs to be Nvidia based.
Trying to keep the white aesthetic but willing to budge. Any advice? Budget ideally should be around $3000.

2023.05.31 02:06 SirAceMcCloud116 Aragorn, The Unifier
Whenever you cast a white spell, create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token.
Whenever you cast a blue spell, scry 2.
Whenever you cast a red spell, Aragorn, the Unifier deals 3 damage to target opponent.
Whenever you cast a green spell, target creature gets +4/+4
Does this have legs as a food chain commander. It would be directly competing with the four color Omnath, but wins on the spot with just food chain and Squee.

2023.05.31 01:55 zdngma0 [U] Ephara's Dismissal in UTron
EDIT: Sorry, I named the card wrong! It's actually Ephara's Disperal!
What are everyone's thoughts on this card? I think it's something to be tried out in place of [[Dismember]] (or maybe [[Repeal]]):
- Only one blue pip
- Castable for 1 mana if a creature is attacking us (relevant against T1 Ragavan)
- Surveil 2 helps us dig towards cards we want
I think it's better than most of the other options we've had in terms of bounce because it gives us value as well as temporarily removing a threat. The closest card to this IMO was [[Fading Hope]] which only scries 1 if the bounced creature was cmc 3 or less.

2023.05.31 01:51 a_wild_unicorn Boutique sold me wrong size
Finally decided to pull the trigger on my dream watch, a Seamaster Aqua Terra Blue Dial back in February. Went to a boutique and tried on the 41mm. I thought it felt a little small but the rep assured me it was the right case size. I love the watch and have barely taken it off since I got it, but I’ve had the sneaking suspicion that it felt small.
Fast forward to today, I found out that the item number on my warranty card correlates to the 38mm.
Is there anything I can do? It doesn’t seem like there is a price difference and I know I can’t return it, but I feel misled by the boutique.

2023.05.31 01:41 ChaosUniversity Help + thoughts on the deck.
| || |
I've been playing in Mythic Historic ranked and am looking to see if anyone has used a deck like this and has any suggestions. Obviously I'm short wildcards for some of the deck, but the basic idea is unblockable crabs/turtles (Charix, if I pull it) that assign damage based off toughness. submitted by ChaosUniversity to MagicArena [link] [comments]
I don't ever really play blue decks but saw Charix and had to. I've gotten quite a few turn 4 and 5 wins and have tried to stack some hex proof and some + 7 to toughness cards in there to ensure the one hit KO. Are there any other Blue/green cards that would work well with the current line up?

Soon after, Juliette is given the news that her kingdom is on the brink of bankruptcy.

Chapter 89: Clash Of Snow
I blinked, all my worst nightmares resurfacing as the Snow Dancer's silver sword swept towards my neck.
In that moment, I saw a premonition of what was to come if I failed in my duty to rescue my kingdom and secure plentiful supply of inexpensive soap to the peasantry.
A glint of steel, no different than the cruel edge of a guillotine, its swift onslaught the herald to our fair realm falling into ruin and rubble as a newly raised republic.
I shuddered as images of fire, smoke and anarchy zipped through my mind, our libraries overrun with illiterate looters and bandits while farmers burgled our royal kitchens for the produce we'd bought from them at a price so extortionately low that they could never hope to leave poverty.
But that's all they were. A terrible premonition.
It wasn't yet time for my life to flash before my eyes. And so I answered the coming sword with the only answer that befitted a princess of this dignified kingdom.
this woman attempt to behead me!
Even in my worst nightmares, whole crowds of angry peasants filled the streets! A deluge of rotten fruit tossed and thrown at me as they decried the life of luxury I deservedly lived at their expense! I had an audience! A death befitting my high status!
Even in my last moments, I could look down upon the unwashed masses from the raised platform built for my execution!
This was a frozen chamber, with the crowds consisting of frozen guards barely tall enough to keep their heads above the snow!
The insult was palpable!
And so–my expression creased beneath the weight of the indignity I felt.
Faced with a scowl hardened by 3 hours of daily practice over 4117 consecutive days, it's little wonder that the sword approaching me instantly slowed.
Indeed, the Snow Dancer positively quailed at the sight … even if she was still smiling in highly off-putting joy!
Brows dented, I twisted around to face the silver sword, taking advantage of the lapse in concentration as I swept Starlight Grace up.
Then, with all the elegance of a troll merchant clubbing away an unsatisfied customer, I batted the silver sword with the utter disdain it deserved.
Immediately, the Snow Dancer pirouetted, her speed as she brought her sword around at odds with the weak commitment of her strike.
Clearly fazed from my utter contempt at this terrible choice of location, the blade that approached my side was as easily slapped away as the falling leaves in my orchard.
And then … she blinked
Gaining several steps of distance, the elven woman stood still and tilted her head, looking down at her own sword with an expression of puzzlement.
After which–her blue eyes took in my scowl.
“Wow,” she said. “Now that was something.”
I held Starlight Grace aloft, adopting whatever pose I knew looked most fashionable against the billowing snow at my back.
Ohoho … this sword saint!
She'd underestimated my ability to instantly cower opponents with facial expressions alone! And no wonder. Who else could crease their brows faster than physics could allow? When a servant spilled wine on my dress, I could adopt an expression of outrage faster than the liquid could stain me!
“An opportunistic attack, Snow Dancer. But I advise you not to underestimate me. The strike of your blade is less swift than the fumbling of my attendants.”
Ophelia blew a puff of silver hair away.
“Ouch, that hurts, comparing my [Butterfly Horizon] to whatever it is maids try on you. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised you parried that. Being high up the fancy ladder must mean having a sixth sense to attacks from behind, huh?”
“Quite so. It matters not from which direction they come. When they seek to stain my dress red, I will know before the deed is done.”
The Snow Dancer twirled her sword, drawing the falling snow towards it.
“So sneak attacks won't work? And to think I still can't catch a whiff of anything scary about you. Now that's a strong presence concealment. How long have you trained with a sword to get like that, Miss E-rank Adventurer?”
I smiled in response.
All the while, I came to a sudden realisation.
I, Juliette Contzen, time trained with a sword, zero hours, was currently duelling with a sword saint.
“O … ohohohoho! I've … I've been trained in a secret fencing style before I could even use a fork! As … As you can see, my ability to stand undaunted is testament to my unmatched skills in swordsmanship, born of natural talent and honed through years of studious effort!”
“Really? Wow. It really is secret. I don't recognise it at all. Is it an adventurer thing?”
“This?” I looked down at my footwork. “Why, this is … this is the pouncing cobra sub-stance of my secret fencing style! A highly defensive position favouring swift counter attacks! Only a fool would attempt to break through my infallible parry and suffer my undodgeable reprisal!”
The elven woman narrowed her eyes at my perfectly acceptable way of holding a sword
“Hmmmmm. It doesn't really remind me of a pouncing cobra?”
I smiled. Hard.
To be so studiously examined was … well, a little bit embarrassing.
But no matter!
Once I defeated her, all thoughts of my supremely unorthodox pose would be forgotten!
Yes, my underhanded strike at her undefended flank had shockingly failed. And yes, this was now an open fight with an A-rank sword saint. And yes, this was indeed a minor problem. After all, for an untrained princess to defeat a sword saint in a fair fight was an impossible feat. The difference between our skill and experience was a canyon wider than the eyes could see.
That's why–I had absolutely zero intention to fight her fairly!
If I were to defeat the Snow Dancer, then it would be with guile, subterfuge and an utter lack of chivalry!
And so, I turned to my assistant in crime!
There, safely tucked away behind a truly impressive snow bastion, my future handmaiden was peering over a solid battlement, ready to come to my assistance at a moment's notice.
And upon the walls of her castle, was a giant message written in the snow.
~ Fight On! Fight On! Juliette Official Fan Club! ♡ B-E-L-I-E-V-E ♡ ~
“You can do it!~” she cried, her hands forming a tunnel around her mouth. “We believe in you!~” Quack, quack. Quack, quack.
Squeezed under her arm was the crystal beaked duck. She hadn't bothered plucking the arrows from it.
I pursed my lips.
Then I turned to the elven woman.
“Oho … ohoho! S-See the peril you find yourself in, Snow Dancer! Even my loyal handmaiden sees no need to come to my immediate aid! Challenging me with a sword is as futile as challenging the stars!”
Far from fleeing at my proclamation, Ophelia's eyes lit up with anticipation.
Ugh, people with swords!
Why did they only think with their foreheads and not anything behind it?! Just go headbutt a wall if you want to expend energy!
“Funny, that,” she said, for some reason sheathing her sword. “I actually did try challenging the stars once.”
Her hand never left her sword's hilt.
Then, she smiled as a circle of white flames suddenly erupted around her.
“Spoiler alert–I failed,” she said, her hair rustling magnificently amongst the ring of blazing light. “But I learned how to get a bit closer to them at least … so, [Gravity Reversal].”
The Snow Dancer drew her sword.
I was aghast.
How did everyone know how to conjure flames except me?! Furthermore, was it a rule that overdone names were necessary for sword techniques?! Why, it's because of people like her that Coppelia wished to rename [Spring Breeze] to [Ball Of Doom]! Just what was a [Gravity Reversal]?!
As expected, names should provide clear and concise information! How was I supposed to prepare for something so ominously named with so little context?!
I already suspected I couldn't rely on my scowl to still her next attack! Even so, this sounded like something else entirely! Was she about to throw something at me?!
The moment her blade left its sheath, I could feel the ground … no, the snow
beneath me beginning to rise.
And then I realised that what she was throwing was, in fact, me
To my absolute chagrin, everything in a wide circle around me was suddenly lifted up into the air.
I was appalled. There were very few scenarios in which I wished to be removed from the ground, and all of them involved being carried by Coppelia as she rescued me to a dramatic backdrop of something exploding.
This was not that!
It was practically the same as when my mother's maids woke me each morning! The hopeless indignation as I was swept away as part of my duvet and unceremoniously dumped to the floor!
And worst … it wasn't the sparkling floor of my bedroom which awaited me, but a ceiling as dull as it was dusty!
Glancing up, I witnessed the dark stonework slowly … slowly
So slowly, in fact, that all I could feel was the insult being levied against both my time and my high standards for any demise!
A plain ceiling without a hint of embellishment? It was disgraceful! Of all the ceilings I wished to be splattered upon, it would be the magnificent Plafond De Dix Mille Cygnes
, painted upon the vestibule of Reitzlake's cathedral!
No, just as much as I refused to accept being hoisted into the air against my will, I also refused to be crushed against such an artless ceiling … especially by a bed of snow!
So the Snow Dancer wished to test winter against me, did she?
How dare she belittle the kingdom's sharp seasonal changes! To wake up and witness the horror of a blanket of heavy snow suddenly throttling my begonias was a sight I was all too keenly aware of! Why, it was not merely insects which threatened my orchard, but the elements themselves!
I leaned down, then shoved Starlight Grace directly into the snow.
“Such fine snow you offer. Let's see if we can make it finer yet, shall we?”
And then–I began to dig.
“Witness the dawning morn, breaking these chains of malaise! Gardening Form, 5th Stance
… [Winter Snow Shovel]!”
Here it was!
A finely honed technique used specifically to remove mounds of snow without the need to painstakingly shovel away like a peasant in a field!
By digging my sword in overlapping, cross-crossing motions, I could make any mound of snow into powder so fine that once I blew at it, all the snow was instantly swept to the abyss!
… But this time, I had no wish to turn this snow into mist.
No, for the Snow Dancer's slovenly attack, she would receive the most slovenly [Winter Snow Shovel] in return!
Because instead of turning the snow into fine grains as I dug … I ceased, allowing the partially hewn icy snow to remain gathered beneath my boots.
I peered down at the snowy ground, seeing the innumerable tiny fissures I'd created.
And then–I gently blew. BWOOOOOOOOOOOOMPH
The mass of snow beneath me shuddered and exploded.
Suddenly, a hailstorm of my very own making shot towards the direction of the Snow Dancer, each rough, yet artistically shaped shard capable of being propelled by a single breath!
An A-rank sword saint! And yet what was [Gravity Reversal], but an overly named way to throw a snowball?! Perhaps it could be used to bring down pigeons from the sky, but such an attack was worthless against the power of my snow shovelling skills, tested and refined in the unremitting cold of Tirea's winters!
Containing the cutting edge of a sharpened dagger, each icy shard utterly exposed the sword saint's poor naming sense as her technique was instead turned into a falling rain of doom … nor were the shards the only things to fall.
For a moment, I found myself suddenly suspended in the air, taking my place high above everyone's heads like the veritable angel I was.
And then I dropped, not yet having bloomed my wings yet.

2023.05.31 00:47 jabar18 2023 Season Innings Recap - 3rd Inning Completed.
Breaking 162 games into 9 innings gets you 18 games. After Sunday’s game against the Rockies, the Mets have now completed the third inning of the season. Here's the second inning recap.
Now here's the recap for the third inning of the season:
- 10-8 record. (27-27 overall) -13 run differential. 5 games back of Atlanta. 1 game back of Wild Card #3
- This is our best inning this year.
- Series wins: 2 (2-1 vs. Rays, 3-0 vs. Guardians)
- Series splits: 1 (2-2 vs. Nationals)
- Series losses: 3 (1-2 @ Reds, 1-2 @ Cubs, 1-2 @ Rockies)
- Upcoming opponents in the next inning: vs. Phillies (3), vs. Blue Jays (3), @ Braves (3), @ Pirates (3), vs. Yankees (2), vs. Cardinals (3), @ Astros (1).
- Verlander is back from injury, and has provided a rotation boost.
- The baby Mets are here!
- Alvarez is knocking home runs out of the park almost daily and seems like a future star.
- Baty and Vientos are contributing and providing key hits and contributions.
- Pete is currently on a rampage at the plate.
- Scherzer seems to have righted himself, and * Senga has shown flashes of brilliance.
- Our rotation is still massively underperforming. We need Scherzer and Verlander to pitch like the aces they’re getting paid to be.
- The pen is getting overworked to make up for the starters. We NEED our starters to pitch deeper into games.
- Multiple holes in the lineup: DH, Marte, Canha & McNeil are in slumps.
- We're losing to teams we should be beating. (Cubs, Rockies, Nationals, Reds, etc)
- Buck’s recent decisions are baffling. (Marte in CF, etc).
- Vogelbach hasn’t been DFA’d yet.
- Edwin Diaz: Torn Patellar Tendon (6-8 months recovery).
- Jose Quintana: Benign Lesion on Rib (due back in June/July)
- Edwin Uceta: Ankle sprain (return TBD)
- Omar Narvaez: Calf strain (60 day IL)
- Sam Coonrod: Lat strain (May/June)
Things to watch for in inning #4:
- Will our starting pitching get it together? When will we get Quintana back?
- Too early to make a trade? We need SP help badly.
- Will we see Mauricio?
- Can Marte and other underperforming members of the lineup get back on track?
- Can we go .500 or better this month?
Top 5 Moments of Inning #3 (not ranked, positive and/or negative moments).
- Series wins against the Rays and Guardians include thrilling late-inning heroics. A week that saved the Mets season?
- Alvarez hits a game tying HR with two outs in the 9th against the Rays to set up Alonso’s walk off HR in extras.
- Lindor walks off his old team in another late game comeback.
- Verlander outduels Beiber in primetime on ESPN Sunday night in the longest starting pitching battle so far in MLB this season.
- Senga punches out 12 Rays and only gives up one earned run against baseball’s most potent offense.
