A good map to godlike players.

and his armies are 5 azure dragons 40 behemoths, 70 cyclops kings, 86 zealots, 120 crusaders, 85 champions, and 38 archangels. Skills are leadership archery, diplomacy, offense, wisdom earth, air, and armorer.

Expert lvl, if someone votes impossible, so I do AI's time events to all towns built completely. So one month faster, expert is two or three months goes complete towns. Now's expert.



All 48 towns! But not labyrinth, because of 215x215. I used metaphors

Edited by tSar-Ivor at 00:45, 30 Jan 2018.

Ooops forgot to tell you guys, graduated on Friday, Bachelor of Arts and Sciences, or something like that, pictures and maybe a vid to follow sometime soon.

Also finally started looking for more appropriate work besides geezer style warehousing labourer, most folks I work with are decent, but their lives are ridiculously simple, to the point of depression, seriously.

Anyhow promptly applied for something cushy like waitrose, but failed their online test spectacularly, they put emotions and words in your mouth then have to resolve a subsequent scenario I'd never find myself in. Apparently their perception of their candidates is as if they were meek creatures who are sent fleeing by the gaze of passers by, then in the scenario you got to be brave and bold and overcome some draconian situation that will never, ever occur not only that the subsequent scenarios that you are spoon fed are equally unlikely.

I have immense respect for the 'Partnership' (i.e Waitrose, John Lewis etc), but this is a little bonkers, I really want to contribute to really one of the few trusworthy British supermarket, but I am shun away at the first attempt.

Also their feedback is strange, as it is some kind of psychological analysis of my personality simply based on the stock scenario and stock answers. Apparently I don't engender their cooperative spirit merely because I do not share my tasks, if I can't do something or I have been ill trained, I will report it sure (or ask a collegue to demonstrate etc), but I will certainly not go up to someone and ask them to share my tasks with me in a team spirit right from the get-go (they expect people to be honest, but let's be real honest, you either have to be dumb or a liar). Sure if this is a how they do it, but out of the blue new guy wants to offload his duties sounds daft af. Essentially they're taking a shortcut to get the candidate to demonstrate they're bat**** crazy about teamwork, but are solid at being individuals, but the way they try to draw it out, if they read it back to you - you'd sound like you have bipolar


The absolute worst are the ones where you're collegue committed some kind of taboo, what do you do? Well who in their right ****ing minds would run to the manager at the drop of the hat, ik am dumb I should've just lied through my teeth (why I'm a labourer, I'm brutally honest to an absolute fault when it comes to interviews, meanwhile the liars get the job and call in sick the first day).



Okay nm, rang em up and begged them for a brutally honest reason, apparently their questionnaire despite my protest is apparently well crafted to deceive you into revealing yourself, she proved it by saying apparently I'd fare very poorly in a team environment and pride myself on my ability to do things alone.

Urgh people dont get it, yes and no. I fare poorly in team enviroments if one of two things (that may combine) occurs, 1. poor leadership/management resulting in suboptimal or right down poor decisions that miss the solution altogether. And 2, if we don't have a clear objective (i.e company ideal), in my interview for my last job for a hotel I asked them this, what is their objective/ideal, is it customer satisfaction (TRULY FFS not your dumb stock answer)? The woman had the nerve to lie through her teeth and say yes. I wanted to walk out that minute, if customer service was your number one priority you'd get the damn air conditioning fixed on your upper two floors and would not sell rooms to guests while they're not fixed knowing perfectly well after 6 months of negative reviews from those who booked those rooms, and knowing full well future guests would be very disatissfied. No lady, your num 1 priority is business (and very poorly done at that), and for whatever reason your idea of business doesn't equate to customer satisfaction, either you're dumb or a liar then (in this case likely both)....Even then, I'm perfectly happy to go with it as dumb as it is, if ffs they tell me the truth, I simply cant function in places where they jump between one thing and another, are people truly this handicapped in the real world? **** me.... Nah they'd rather look pretty and ACT and lie despite surely knowing I'd see all their skeletons within a week.

Pretty sure I just got to shirk some scrouples, but people truly confuse the bejesus out of me


Idiot conservative logic where they think cutting back and asking for more work from staff and more payment from their guests is the way to come out of a tight one. Would it never occur to fools to actually do what they're meant to do and offer a decent ****ing service!?

Maybe I'm the fool, I certainly aim to find out.



Never mind, I realized the discrepency in my logic, I am a poor teamplayer, terrible really, I am a narcissist and often come u

now i know why i didn't get past the questionaire on so many jobs. i always thought the correct answer was to inform the manager if anything went wrong/was stolen/saw bad work policy.

Oh, I thought it was simply heretical. A backdoor to blasphemous eastern ideologies just like kung fu, ju jutsu.

Our glorious church has also banned bath salts. They are the stuff of evil and temptation.

Well naturally, I finally figured out the theoretical aspects and just pursuing the practical ones, for the past 5 months since completing my studies I've been working for an agency working odd jobs for a bunch of different companies (essentially lower working class). Just studying people, the structure, the objectives of companies and how they ineffectively resolve problems that seem simple (for instance one company moved to a warehouse that can't store all their goods, so it's chaos and it falls to us to make it work, which is unrealistic). People's actions tend to be decent indicators of their true motivation, the realism theories from political science have been tremendously accurate so far.

For instance trust, knowing your objectives and the necessary steps to meet them and more than anything working within your means. It seems to me that so many of the companies have core flaws and they struggle, ordinary workers bearing the brunt of it.

For instance, it's very easy to see if there's trust between members of a team and then the company

And I say to you: dress up freely. I'm 39yo, and I dress cool. And then you may be dressing Lee Cooper or unmarked style clothing by aged with, or retrosexual.
