I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Okay, so... I started a new game, and used "alternate start" to make myself a warlocks thrall. I wake up in a cave, with one guy who knows I'm there and doesn't care because he thinks I'm under his mind control.

 

So I grab the wood axe and plant it in the back of his head. End of warlock. I have no idea how long I've been in this cave, or what he made me do...or what he did to me (cause I did something else I've never done in skyrim before: played a female character.), so I decide I'm going to extract literally everything I can from this forsaken hole in the ground.

 

I wind up with a lot of alchemical ingredients... and there's an alchemy table right there, AND a guide to herbs and plants on the shelf. So, I try it. I have enough in there to not only make five good potions (3 restore stamina and 2 restore mana.) but to experiment some too. I'm having fun playing with potions!

 

Satisfied with my work, and a new hobby, I leave the cave to find that I'm north of riften. I start running around collecting anything and everything I can find, and wind up in shors stone. And the adventure has only just begun...

SOOOOoooooo

Last Stop, a local 2nd hand store for Books, Games, Movies, and Music, got their hands on a bunch of Anime.  So I mozied on over to check it out.  Found myself Ghost in the shell, Vampire hunder D: Bloodlust, Attack on Titan: pt2, the Rune Soldiers box set....

And the official Game Guide to Skyrim.

Almost forgot to scope out the basement to check their guides.  I'm glad I did.  ^__^

Alternate start you say?  What is this and how can I find it?

I recommend using the nexus mod manager. The program, and website are both free to use (with registration, which is absolutely free.) and there's literally thousands of mods you can much around with. Currently less on the special edition, but all the popular stuff is making it's way over.

 

But using nexus also comes with bonus integration for stuff like "loot" (load order optimization tool. It helps keeps the game running smoothly and as crash free as possible while running hundreds of mods.) and SKSE (skyrim script extender. A must have executable for some of the more advanced mods.).

 

Alternate start literally needs nothing else, but adds to the experience nicely without killing the vanilla start outright. Go ahead and download it, start a new character and check it out. I usually go with either shipwrecked, attacked and left for dead, or warlock's thrall. but you need to be careful with the first two: as you can be dumped on solstheim with those.

Well... things haven't been going smoothly.

- got sucked into building additional characters before making much progress.
- got sucked into re-building the same characters due to nit-picky reasons.... be it that I found out about something listed below, to accidentally not naming the char, to realizing EVERYONE has fire.  X(

But yeah, I got...
- Nikitis, the Ork, with her alternating between two maces or a sheild and an axe on Mele.  She managed to level up BEFORE escaping the caves
- Malekeith, the dark-elf assasin with two Imperial swords he took from the jerks who tried to cut his head off.
- Lilliana, the dark-elf who I'mma thinking is going to be a necromancer (or a sith... she has palpatines complexion)
- Katarine, the Imperial who likes to BURN THINGS.

Messed up with dargo... gonna rebuild.  He's gonna have two-handed weapons




Found out about these two books, that you have to head out to get BEFORE heading to Riverbend.  You had to go back to the smoldering dragon party, take the gate to your left, and take the left fork.  Go up the road and you'll find a Kitty caravan that's been raided, and the bandits are still hanging about.  The wiki said that they won't attack you until you loot the wreckage, but each time I've gone up they've attacked me on site.  Aside from some sweet heavy armor that can be picked off their corpses... there is a book in one of the carts that gives you a boost to your speech.

Keep going up the road and turn off to follow the side of a cliff, and you'll find a wolves den... with two angry wolves.  Kill and skin them, and in the den you'll find a dead lady with a book on Armor, and a coin purse.

NOW... your probably over-encumbered at this point, fortunately the Stormcloak camp is just to the left of the caravan... or at least it will be once you go to Riverbend.  But, for some reason, the Cloak's quartermaster is preemptively hanging about.  Plus the cart has a box in the back for you to load stuff into if you don't want to slowly scale a cliff.

Remember, you NEED TO GO HERE FIRST!  You go to Riverbend, and the books vanish.

Get a perk.

 

Also the Civil War storyline is really really really dumb.  Honestly they should've New Vegased it and given us the agency to become High King of Skyrim.  After all all Ulric can do is use one Shout.  We've got an entire vocabulary to hug him up with.

So, more blindly trying to shoot things.

My acheivements on the bow include pissing off a bear repeatedly, wounding a fox that got away, chasing an elk towards wolves.

My only glory is the one-hit kill of an elk this morning.  Of course, I kinda accidentally put Nikitis is rage-mode.

My first play through I went with Stormcloaks. Second time I went with Empire. I like Stormcloaks because you storm the cities instead of defending. I just like laying siege and killing everyone.

But story wise, they both suck. You're either fighting for the people who tried to chop your head off at Helgen, or you're fighting for the people who tried to kill you while escaping Helgen.

Depends who you followed out of Helgen.  Follow the cloak, and you get better armor, and you get to kill that chick who ordered you to the block.

BTW... what's up with your MLP sig?  He looks... cray-cray

It's...a long story.

In the RP, my character used to have a move that took away HP from an enemy while giving me HP. I took the vampire symbolism a bit too literally and had my character bite an enemy. I've...toned him down a bit since then.

But then Fnu did his comic interpretation of the scene and...well...*points to the avatar*

Okay... so... my post was mostly ideological in nature. I've never actually done a playthrough where I joined either side. I support the empire... but not enough to join the legion. And frankly, the stormcloaks are entirely too "vive la quebec libre" for my liking.

So, my Emperial brat got done with the bandits, books, and speech-boosting, was heading down the trail incinerating a fox, when this lady ran up.  She wanted to know directions because she just escaped her kidnappers, and after I did so, she thanked me, told me where they where, and suggested I take care of them, and marked them on my map before running off.

Thing is, I can't remember where presactly.  I think she said 'whiterun' or 'Mistwatch', and there's no mission posted for it.

Anybody know what I'm talking 'bout?

Well, since whiterun is a major city, and mistwatch is a bandit outpost on the main road to falkreath... I would guess mistwatch.

 

Edit: and you might have a mission note for it under "miscellaneous" in your journal.

 

Edit again: hold on a tic, I think the name of the raider outpost in falkreath (on the road between falkreath and helgen.) is called pinewatch... So I might be entirely wrong here.

Kay.  Well, I saved and went back, but instead of the lady, I found a dead trader with a pick-axe, an tiara, and a note about finding an axe.  This char doesn't use axes...but the tiara is nice.

Then I went the wrong way, and found a shrine with dead-people and wolves.  Had one guy in special magical armor.  Found better stuff when I got to where I was supposed to be.

And cooked up some awesome stuff with that leek.

Now.... only i I could figgure out alchemy.
