[Spoiler 5.5] Comparison between Garlemald and city of interest :^)

2021.12.03 00:21 mymindspent [Spoiler 5.5] Comparison between Garlemald and city of interest :^)

So I was thinking about how disappointing of a character Varis turned out to be before EW launch and my mind made a bunch of connections between Garlemald and Amaurot that I thought had interesting implications. Just gonna put down some of my ideas and even if it wasn't intentional by the writers, I think it's an interesting literary analysis nonetheless. I'm going off memory and don't have access to Encyclopeida Eorzea so apologies ahead of time if there are inaccuracies.

Nation Amaurot Garlemald
People The most powerful/capable of aether-wielders on the star, large in physical stature, relies on creation magic Race of people incapable of wielding magic but physically endowed with a "third eye", relies on magitek
Societal Structure Largely "flat", egalitarian with no real hierarchy or singular "ruler", a closest example would be the Convocation Highly stratified, regimented society ranging from the emperor to the lowest slave
Philosophies Peaceful, scholarly, generally non-interventionist "Overseers" of the Star, homogenous because differences breed desire/conflict Imperialist, war-like, patriarchal, authoritarian society, "needs to guide the savages", emperor seeks rejoining because differences in men breeds fonclict
"Ruling"/Leadership Structure The Convocation of 14; A convocation is a group of people formally assembled for a special purpose, mostly ecclesiastical or academic. , elected by democratic means, the most capable and learned of scholars in their society, only leads out of necessity, titles given based on ability/knowledge, no overarching leader Emperor giving directives to 14 Legatuses that were personally selected, highly competitive, cutthroat hierarchy,
14th Member (Azem) Left due to disagreement with sacrifice in the name of salvation (for the star) (Gaius) Left due to disillusionment with conquest in the name of salvation (of the savage/weak)
Technology Highly controlled bureaucracy behind creation magics/concepts Fuck it, there is no such things as boundaries
Geography THEORY; Likely lived on a floating island, no need for guards or defenses in Amaurot, basically paradise Came from an island but moved to a harsh, cold land after destruction, literally surrounded on all sides by subjugators
Diversity? Not very and intentionally designed to be that way Very diverse but pushes toward homogeneity or at least supremacy of "purebloods"
Intentional or not, I think there is an interesting contrast between Garlemald and Amaurot. With Amaurot being inspired by Thomas Moore's Utopia, I think there are some directions the story can go with the Final Days or the Sound. In Utopia, the island civilization was built by a General to be the ideal society after conquering the local inhabitants and destroying the land bridge connecting the island to the rest of the world, enabling it to be isolationist. Also, there is the matter of slaves in Utopia. Does Amaurot have more secrets that we don't know about? It seems unlikely that the society was "perfect" in every aspect.
Even though Garlemald is clearly a disastrous force on the world, there is the matter of "homogeneity". Diversity and overcoming differences is a prevailing theme in FF14 and perhaps the fact that Amaurot has an enforced homogeneity was the source of its downfall. I recall a dialogue where one of the Amaurotian shades expressing worry about the fact that their society might "run out of creativity", especially when it is implied most of them never leave or explore (only Azem really did that). Despite its clear negatives, several Garlean leaders, Noah Gabranth and Gaius Baelsar, have acknowledged the benefits of diversity.
I am very suspicious of the notion that going back to a world of Amaurotians (even if it was possible without mass genocide) would be ideal.

2021.12.03 00:21 yochillum Print Head Not Returning to Center on Auto Home (x-post r/CR-10)

Hoping someone may be able to help. I had to install extension cables for my CR-10s and so the machine was off power for some time. Plugged it all back up and now when auto-homing, the printer moves to the endstops then proceeds to home the Z from there without returning to the center.
I am running the TH3D Unified Firmware and nothing else was altered during this downtime beside the cable extensions.
I have tested both endstops manually as well as my EZABL and all trigger properly by finger. Has anyone run into this before? Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!

2021.12.03 00:21 HGGoals Recruiter Gave Info. Company Gave Conflicting Info. I Declined Job and was called Abrasive. Did I Screw Up?

A recruiter reached out about a job in my field at an automotive plant. He wasn't able to answer my questions beyond the posted job description (machine operator - bend presses and basic weld inspection). I was told that after 3 months I could move into other roles and advance (I'm studying robotics/inspection and wanted more experience).
I wasn't allowed to tour the plant or ask questions without sending hiring information. This concerned me.
I had to argue with the security guard to get in as I arrived 10 minutes early. The guide on the tour also couldn't answer my questions or direct me to someone who could. He didn't show me any machines I recognize for the job I was told I would do. Before he left me I asked him what I'd be doing since I was more and more confused about what I'd be doing there. I was told I'd drive trucks around the plant and deliver materials. I told him what the recruiter had said and was told that I could bid on jobs if they come up but hiring is based on seniority. I asked what other jobs were available and was told the union reps have a list. Getting out the gate was as eventful as getting in.
I declined the offer as it wasn't at all what I had expected, does not utilize my skills and I do not drive.
The tour was the afternoon before my first shift was scheduled. Had I not pushed for info I would not have known what I'd be walking in to.
The recruiter called my decision abrasive and said I would have been moved to a different role in 2 to 6 weeks. I did not know this. He also said I burned that bridge and would have been a welder in a few months (I applied for experience with inspection. I specifically asked if manual welding was required as I am not interested if so and was told "no" and there are other roles).
I've never dealt with a recruiter and don't know what to make of this. I felt confused through this process and was blindsided.
Did I screw up? Is this normal or not?

Outcasters is a great game but unfortunately the player base is pretty small and it's mostly bots, so I figured I would let outcaster fans know there are humans playing outcasters tonight.,

2021.12.03 00:21 Dizzy_Cow_952 Haven't posted on here in a brick but I need to get this off my chest about the warriors den.

fuck my life man. Fuck ubi. And fuck raider. I just now realized what lightning strike is because of someone's meme post about the warriors den. This entire time I thought "huh that's not too bad of a nerf lightning strike was a dodge able attack before the rework :)" (my dumb ass was thinking about storm rush and how people complained it could be spammed so I assumed that is what they changed) And I just now realized that it is the dodge forward light. (I also thought all dodge lights were called zephyr slash which contributed in this conundrum) Now why in the fuck would they remove the undodgeable factor? Orochi is now nullified and has no opener lmao I can't help but laugh to be honest because the reason he got the kick in the first place was to give him a opener so he doesn't just light all the time. And the undodgeable light made sure that the enemy didn't just dodge anytime they saw orochi dodge forward. Now that it can be dodged all you have to do is dodge Everytime orochi dodges forward and bom, he is restricted to his storm rush to catch you....oh wait, what that? You can light attack orochi out of his storm rush before he gets you thus also nullifying that move? Lmao I'm so annoyed that all I can do is laugh through this pain.

Ive got a tiny little green sprout growing in one of my tubs- 4 days post S2B. I’ve seen this happen in other people’s tubs. Never thought it would happen to me lol. Question though, do I need to pull it out ASAP or wait until my tub is ready for FC and then pull it out?
Also anyone know how this happens? I pasteurized my Coco Coir twice and still a sprout managed to grow🤦🏻‍♀️

2021.12.03 00:21 CerebusReborn Is it possible to transfer from stand alone to steam?

Is this a possibility? I'm in a weird pickle where I bought the game in 2.0 on steam but repurchased it (along with all xpacs) and was simply wondering if there was a way to transfer the account to be in my steam rather than the random account that's currently on there... Sorry if this doesn't make sense it's a weird situation and idk how to explain it
