2021.12.04 17:43 nighttimecharlie This year was a year of frugal winning
I started this year off working 20 hours a month and doing endless interviews. I'd been living off my savings from 2019 basically. In April, a friend of my parent's passed away and I bought their 1999 Toyota with 150km on it for 1000$. Winter tires, extra battery and had been rustproofed yearly. Folks, it drives like a charm.
I helped the widower clean up and empty his house bc he was moving to another province to be with his sons. So he gave me her Patagonia hiking gear, some house things, linens, a sofa chair, and firewood!! Absolute win!!!!
Then I got a job!! Finally can replenish my savings!
Recently another friend of my parents passed away (getting old sucks) and now I'm the proud owner of an entire 9 piece Le Creuset set in a gorgeous blood orange!
It's mostly luck, but helping elderly folks can be rewarding morally and you can get some awesome gifts.
I think I survived this year off blind luck, and near extreme frugality. I'm happy that few things of mine need replacing. And now that I have a stable job I can afford the rise in food prices :/

2021.12.04 17:43 MaintenanceFalse8688 Connecting online on FH5 is still an issue after update (I’m on PC)
It still says can’t connect, then press c to check diagnostics. Every time I retry, nothing.
The only way to play online is playing on cloud which sucks. I allowed this game in firewall, I have a decent internet connection, and my pc is up to date.
Does anyone still have this issue???

2021.12.04 17:43 StewardoftheJungle Tip: Try to give less well known cultures and civilizations some love too
Creating a new culture from scratch is hard, there are so many things to worry about and think through that most worldbuilders don't even know where to start. That's why many fantasy civilizations are either built around a core concept and "theme", which if you are not careful can result in a superficial, stereriotypical and bland monoculture with no complexities, or inspired by a real world culture.
The problem with the second option is that it almost always results in a boring copy of the real world. Oh look, another totally original fantasy world with magic England, magic France, magic Vikings, magic China and magic Arabia, with the last two viewed through heavily orientalist and eurocentric lenses of course. I don't think there is necessarialy a problem with taking inspiration from the real world, but inspiration is not the same as making carbon copies, and these cultures i mentioned have already been done so many times that they are just uninteresting and make your world less distinctive.
I have recently started a new worldbuilding project, and one of my philosophies going into this is to try to take more inspiration from cultures that aren't "mainstream", the kingdom i am currently developing is mainly inspired by Poland Lithuania, with an elective monarchy, strong liberal institutions for the nobility while the commoners are still oppressed, a special "culture" for the noblemen and of course elite heavy cavalry. Here are some other ideas i had as examples:
Want to make a mountain culture ? Instead of making them a bunch of savage barbarians who live in the cold and survive solely by raiding "civilized" people all while wanting to destroy civilization, why don't you make them a Proud Empire like the Incans or a decentralized confederacy like the Switzerland ?
Want a decentralised civilization of city states that paved the way for later civilizations ? Why not be inspired by the Etruscans instead of the Greeks ?
Want a "Rome" analogue ? Why not Byzantium instead of the Principate ?
Want a "middle eastern" culture ? Why not the ancient Mesopotamians instead of arabs ?
Want an ancient empire that constantly falls and builds up again in a cycle that goes on for thousands of years ? Ancient egypt is right there, you don't need to make the one hundreth version of fantasy China.
Are you making a colonial era fantasy ? Why not try to make the natives Tupi instead of the anachronistic and steriotyped American Great Plains cultures ?
Want a culture from the frigid north (or south) ? Good thing Finland and the Inuit peoples exist, Scandinavians are not the only people who lived far away from the tropics.
There is whole real world of cultures to explore and take inspiration from, we, worldbuilders, don't need to restrict ourselves to the ten we remember from social science class, let's give lesser known cultures some love, it will both make our world more distinct and help bring attention to these great lesser known civilizations.
Finally, i would like to say that if you are going to this, don't be inspired by steriotypes, actually do your research and be respectful to the people you are borrowing from.

2021.12.04 17:43 Agreeable_Antelope94 Troy Alabama Questions
Hello! My husband just got a job in Brundige and we are looking to relocate to Troy, AL. Can anyone point me in the direction of a few really great family friendly neighborhoods and Good public/ private schools? There seems to be nothing on the market on Zillow and I’m feeling a little lost because there is so little information online. I know it is a small town and it looks charming!
Any advice you would have for a newcomer?
