COVID Update - August 7, 2020
The situation with California’s case data apparently has been resolved, but it will take up to two days before the new data reflect the up to 300,000 records that were backlogged in the system. Accordingly, I won’t show or comment on any numbers that involve case data for California, its counties, cities, or zip codes. Instead, I’ll just present numbers on fatalities and hospitalizations, since, to my knowledge, there were no problems regarding those statistics. Apparently, they aren’t updating the state datasets, since the last day I was able to download was August 5. I’ll see how things look on Monday, and if I’m fairly sure the data are reliable, I’ll do a full update then.
If you want to review the numbers anyway, you can go to your public health department (links on zorgi.me) or to the following interactive charts:
Since I won’t really have any case data to talk about, I may take the whole weekend off. I have 365 personal days per year in my contract, so I think I may take two of them Saturday and Sunday!

In the city of San Diego, however, little or no enforcement. Even though cases have increased 25% over the past month, only one citation was issued in July.
I can understand the reluctance of police officers to move in on individuals, but these huge parties? They need to be shut down, and the organizers fined heavily. Same for religious “leaders” who hold in-person services in violation of public health orders.
These people who don’t wear masks are like litter bugs. They are the tragedy of the commons. Their selfishness hurts us all, not just the health care workers who have to tend to them when their recklessness gets them sick.
So wear your mask this weekend and stay safe & healthy. See you on Monday!

2020.06.04 03:32 Beginning_Beginning Drug trafficking as a convenient excuse for intervention in Venezuela

I just saw an article here at the sub on the US offering 5MM USD for the Arrest of Venezuela’s Crypto Chief. A quote from that article:
Geoffrey Berman, district attorney, of New York, accused him last month of being part of a corrupt group of high-ranking Venezuelan officials – including President Nicolas Maduro – running a “narco-terrorism partnership” intent on flooding “the United States with cocaine in order to undermine the health and wellbeing of our nation.”
So, the theory is that Maduro wants to flood the US with cocaine and that the entire Venezuelan government is a huge drug-trafficking enterprise that supports this purpose. I think some people honestly believe that this is true. Perhaps others believe that there might or not be truth to the idea of the Venezuelan narco-state but still support the premise because it serves as a way to achieve foreign military intervention in the country. I won't even attempt to argue that the Venezuelan government does not engage in drug trafficking but only to present some sources that question a) the idea of Venezuela flooding the US with drugs; b) that neighboring countries like Colombia are trully concerned with drugs trafficking in general; and c) that the US government is truly concerned with drugs undermining the health and wellbeing of the nation.
Venezuela isn't flooding the US with drugs
Just today, Colombian political magazine Semana published a report titled "La principal ruta de la droga sigue siendo el Pacífico y no Venezuela" - "The main drug (trafficking) route continues to be the Pacific and not Venezuela"
https://www.semana.com/nacion/articulo/narcotrafico-en-colombia-las-rutas-de-salida-de-la-droga/661805
El informe da cuatro datos reveladores. El primero es que para el año 2017, según los datos de instituciones de los Estados Unidos, el 85 % del tráfico de drogas fue marítimo, por lo cual se deduce que el 15 % fue aéreo. Pero del total del tráfico marítimo, el 70 % pasó por el Pacífico, lo que significa que el 30 % restante pasó por el mar Caribe.
Lo anterior indica que Venezuela no es la principal ruta de salida de la droga que se produce en Colombia. Además, en el informe se cita un reporte de la organización Wola, que dice que los datos de la Base de Datos Antidrogas Consolidada Interagencial (CCDB, por su sigla en inglés) de los EE. UU. muestran que los flujos de cocaína a través de Venezuela han disminuido desde su pico en 2017. Según los datos de CCDB, la cantidad de cocaína que fluye a través de Venezuela cayó un 13 por ciento de 2017 a 2018, y parecía continuar disminuyendo ligeramente hasta mediados de 2019.
So, not only is Colombia the main producer of cocaine and the US the main consumer, but Colombia also the main exporter by far. And not just that, Venezuela has actually been reducing cocaine traffic through it's territory for years.
If this wasn't enough, Colombia under Duque's presidency broke the dishonourable record of most coca plants cultivated area in its history: 212 thousand hectares in 2019.
Un tercer dato que trae el informe es que, según el Departamento de Estado de los Estados Unidos, en 2019 Colombia llegó a la cifra más alta de cultivos de hoja de coca en su historia, con 212 mil hectáreas. En 2018 fueron 208 mil. Es decir, se produjo un leve aumento. De fondo, lo que existe es que aquella idea de que el aumento de los cultivos era producto de una mano blanda y que cuando el gobierno de Iván Duque llegara todo iba a cambiar, pero no fue así.
Neighboring governments aren't trully concerned with drugs traffick in general
Today, it was reported in Colombia that a woman named Maria Claudia Daza and known by the nickname "Cayita" held a first interrogation with prosecutors because she was recorded - as part of an investigation by Colombian intelligence services - talking to a famous drug trafficker known as Ñeñe Hernandez and proposing him to "pasar plata debajo de la mesa" - that is, to provide non-traceable funds to buy votes for then presidential candidate Ivan Duque in the northern coastal states.
https://www.elespectador.com/noticias/judicial/maria-claudia-daza-guardo-silencio-durante-interrogatorio-por-nenepolitica-articulo-922447
Yesterday, General Raúl Antonio Rodríguez Arévalo droped out of the Colombian Army where he was acting as Chief of the Army Operations Staff because of his links to drug trafficker Ñeñe Hernandez.
https://www.semana.com/semana-tv/semana-noticias/articulo/alto-mando-del-ejercito-vinculado-con-el-nene-hernandez-pide-su-retiro/67559
In mid march an ambulance airplane that left Olaya Herrera airport (the urban airport in Medellin) crashed in Honduras full of drugs.
https://www.eltiempo.com/unidad-investigativa/cae-en-honduras-avioneta-ambulancia-con-coca-colombiana-474616
A couple of months ago the police found and incinerated a drug lab at a farm belonging the Colombia's ambassador in Uruguay - Fernando Sanclemente Alzate - capable of processing one ton of coke a month. The ambassador resigned to his post and returned to Colombia where he denied any wrongdoing.
https://www.elheraldo.co/colombia/hallan-laboratorio-de-coca-en-finca-familiar-de-embajador-de-colombia-en-uruguay-701565
I find it curious that his name came up last weekend on an investigative report by Daniel Coronel titled "El vuelo fatal" ("The fatal flight") - https://losdanieles.com/daniel-coronell/el-vuelo-fatal/
Last week Coronell reminded Colombians that a young Alvaro Uribe sold an apartment back in the seventies to a guy named Israel Londoño Mejía - a drug trafficker who was the brother in law of Jorge Luis, Juan David and Fabio Ochoa Vásquez. The Ochoa brothers were, along with Pablo Escobar, the capos of the Medellin drug cartel. Uribe of course denied that they had a relationship beyond having met some time in college. But Coronell showed documents proving that less than a year later, Uribe - acting as chief of Aeronáutica Civil - authorized the import of a civilian helicopter for Israel Londoño. In September of 1983, the Minister of Justice of that time suspended the operation of 57 aircraft, including the aforementioned helicopter, because they actually belonged to drug cartels through a number of figureheads.
Years later somehow the helicopter ended up in the hands of an amnestied drug dealer named Luis Guillermo ‘Guillo’ Ángel who was close to the Ochoas back then, This helicopter had a fatal crash in 2006 in which a local politician by the name Pedro Juan Moreno Villa, who had a Secretary post for Uribe when he was governor but who had distanced himself from him during his presidency, died. Supposedly Moreno had information on Uribe's provided air logistics for a paramilitary incursion called the "Masacre del Aro". Several years later, the investigators of the case published a judiciary report stating that the most probable cause of the accident was criminal sabotage, however Uribe's Aeronautica Civil emited a preliminary report which shows a number of inconsistencies, detailed in Coronell's piece. This report was signed by its then chief Fernando Sanclemente Alzate, the same guy who's farm was found to host a coke lab just a couple of months ago.
You can read about Moreno's death from Corporación Nuevo Arco Iris - https://www.arcoiris.com.co/2016/04/quien-mato-a-pedro-juan-moreno/
I just mentioned some examples from the past days, but Colombia is rife with these "fortuitous" ocurrences and with almost daily instances of drug scandals that involve every instance of society. Colombia is the narco state par excellence. I'm sure there's plenty of people that has big interests in drug traffick flourishing, and probably through Venezuela too and not just the Pacific.
The US government isn't truly concerned either with drugs undermining the health and wellbeing of the nation
A couple of weeks ago I read a news article titled "Some Pa. Republicans are open to legalizing marijuana after coronavirus blew a hole in the budget: ‘It’s inevitable’"
https://www.inquirer.com/business/weed/pennsylvania-marijuana-legalization-recreational-use-gop-20200521.html
All it took was an economic crisis for these people to go from "devil's lettuce is destroying America" to "let's make money from recreational marijuana". With that sort of willpower and commitment to the health and wellbeing of their nation. If we are being honest, it seems that US's focus on drugs is focused primarily on the economics of it. Again. if it was a matter of flooding the US with a drug that undermines the health and wellbeing of that nation, the Slackers would have all gone to jail a long time ago.
"The family behind OxyContin pocketed $10.7 billion from Purdue Pharma. Meet the Sacklers, who built their $13 billion fortune off the controversial opioid" - https://www.businessinsider.com/who-are-the-sacklers-wealth-philanthropy-oxycontin-photos-2019-1
And obviously, the focus of the cocaine crackdown wouldn't be the Venezuela but some of its neighbors, including but not limited to Colombia.
An afterword
I suspect that some of the people that read this post will be tempted to ignore all of my sources and comment on my defending of a criminal regime, etc. I wanted to add that I really don't have a problem with drugs themselves. As a matter of fact, I believe that countries should implement models of decriminalization and regularization of the production and distribution of drugs, which approach consumption as a matter of education and public health (and the dismantling of the structures of organized crime that are fueled by the punitive prohibition approach).
The war on drugs is a plague that must be dismantled. It is equally damaging be it that the president of Venezuela is Maduro or someone like Guaidó. If people do not agree with this view, at the very least I expect them to recognize some facts that run counter to the US-led information agenda.

2020.05.01 10:57 kong-dao COVID-19: GDPR Violado

La pandemia abrazó al mundo en un aspecto sanitario y tecnológico, las distopias de Aldous Huxley o George Orwell (entre otros) aparecieron para quedarse, la realidad siempre supera la ficción, oculta desde la sombra miraba todo, lista para arrimarse cuando quisiera.
Con la idea de mezclar ambas partes, ciencia y tecnología, las empresas no tardaron en hacer una sinfonía orquestada que aturde a usuarios con el bombarde de información por medio de la televisión, radio, prensa o internet, que además utiliza como herramientas de control sin su conscentimiento, la excusa: COVID-19. No ahondaré en países donde la vigilancia rompe con todas las "libertades civiles" como China, Rusia, Corea del Norte, Corea del Sur, Estados Unidos, Australia, Canada, Nueva Zelanda, Japón, Israel, Iran y más, pero sí donde los políticos se regocijan y vanaglorian de las leyes aprobadas: Europa.
La "fiebre tecnológica" saltó al mundo cuando la OMS declaró la pandemia, miles de empresas de hardware y software especializadas en mediciones térmicas empezaron a frotarse las manos para "predecir" los síntimas del virus: fiebre, fatiga, pérdida del apetito y el olfato, tos, dolor muscular (efecto secundario de la fiebre), son los más "comunes" Resulta dificil atribuir a un virus síntomas tan generales, pero no tanto gracias a la tecnología que se instalará en aeropuertos, aviones, edificios públicos y privados (compañías) y no es casualidad que el "mercado térmico" haya saltado como nunca antes con un valor estimado de €65 Billones según Telegraph
Recientemente Google y Apple se asociaron para "ayudar" con su aporte tecnológico, crearon una API (Programa de Aplicación con Interfaz - Application Programming Interface) hoy conocida como "app", que estará en los sistemas operativos Android e iOS a partir de las proximas actualizaciones de software. La aplicación utilizará el sistema de Bluethooth para identificar, gracias al GPS, cerca de quien estuvo, cuándo y dónde, hará "tests" de COVID-19 que si da positivo se enviará a las autoridades y luego se enviarán una alerta de forma anónima a la persona que estuvo en contacto con el "infectado". Ante esta iniciativa del sector privado, los gobiernos de Francia y Alemania levantaron la mano para pedir acceso a los códigos, mientras ellos desarrollan sus propias APIs con la ayuda de los institutos Inria (Francia) y Fraunhofer (Alemania) ambos miembros del proyecto PEPP-PT (Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing) los que según la documentación oficial subida a Github (compañía adquirida en 2018 por Microsoft en U$7.5 Billones) no muestra el código fuente, solamente se ven unos cuantos pdf además de las 43 incidencias entre las que se relacionan los problemas de privacidad y seguridad que ofrece la "app", cuyo último documento fue subido por el primer instituto fechada el 30 de Abril de 2020 diciendo respetar las normas mínimas del GDPR (¿Qué dice el GDPR? Lo aclaro debajo) La pregunta sería ¿cómo la API puede descartar los falsos-positivos? Aún no está claro. Lo que si está claro es que el mismo documento oficial aclara que el impacto será la Vigilancia Masiva, los informes son precarios con respecto a la información técnica sobre la tegnología que utilizarán y si la app será centralizada o descentralizada, es decir de código abierto (open-source) o código cerrado (al que acceden solamente los "dueños") que de momento sería el último caso. Este plan o proyecto "pan-europeo",comenta Thomson Reuters, fue apoyado por las más grandes empresas de telecomunicaciones de Europa entre las que se encuentran: Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telefonica, Telecom Italia , Telenor, Telia y Telekom donde la primer ministra alemana Angela Merkel apoyó de forma rotunda tras bloquear las acciones de Trump para comprar vacunas a CureVac (farmaceutica alemana subvencionada por la Fundación Bill & Melinda Gates) Desde el mes de Abril los países que comenzar con el plan fueron: España, Italia, Noruega, Belgica, Inglaterra, Portugal y Grecia.
La página oficial de la empresa española Telefónica muestra de forma orgullosa su historia colaborativa con Facebook, además de asociarse con Google y el gobierno español para desarrollar una "app" local y combatir el COVID, empresas que la Comunidad Europea estaba bloqueando por considerarlas "comeptencia".
Vodafone tiene actualmente trabajando a investigadores pagados por la Fundación Bill & Melinda Gates para luchar contra la pandemia, una con la que tienen relación hace más de 10 años según la web oficial de la institución. (Esta fundación ya fue expuesta en otro articulo sobre su intención de reducir la población mundial y cómo se relaciona con la infame OMS)
GDPR
En 2016 la Comunidad Europea aprobó la Regulación de Protección General de Datos (siglas en inglés: GDPR) aplicada (tardíamente) en 2018 para trabaja a la par es el Comité Europeo de Protección de Datos (EDPB por sus siglas en inglés) Esta última, dirigada por la abogada Andrea Jelinek, hizo publico un breve comunicado de 3 páginas en la web oficial el día 19 de Marzo de 2020, en la 1er pág. cita:
Emergency is a legal condition which may legitimise restrictions of freedoms provided these restrictions are proportionate and limited to the emergency period. (La emergencia es una condición legal que puede legitimar las restricciones de las libertades\, siempre que estas restricciones sean proporcionadas y limitadas al período de emergencia)*
*[La palabra legitimar deriva de legítimo, es decir, legal, lícito o permitido, lease "es permitido restringir las libertades"] Condición anti-ćonstitucional de los "derechos humanos" que rechaza de pleno el Articuloº13 sobre la libre circulación.
El 20 de Abril, una publicación de Bloomberg declara:
We know that cellphone contact tracing is effective, though, in part through documents made public by the former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden describing how the National Security Agency gained access to global location data by tapping into mobile network cables. Intelligence agencies used this data to uncover hidden associations of known targets based on intersecting movements. (Sin embargo, sabemos que el rastreo de contactos de teléfonos celulares es efectivo, en parte a través de documentos hechos públicos por el ex contratista de inteligencia de los Estados Unidos, Edward Snowden, que describen cómo la Agencia de Seguridad Nacional obtuvo acceso a datos de ubicación global al conectarse a cables de redes móviles. Las agencias de inteligencia utilizaron estos datos para descubrir asociaciones ocultas de objetivos conocidos basados en movimientos de intersección.)
Recientemente el navegador Brave que apunta a la privacidad de los usuarios (pero no más que el open-source Firefox) denunció a la comunidad Europea por violar las políticas de GDPR con respecto a los usuarios, alegando que los gobiernos están fallando en respetar las políticas que ellos mismos crearon para proteger a los usuarios.
El periódico inglés Daily Mailpublicó un articulo titulado: "Cuando las pandemias golpean, el libro de reglas sale volando por la ventana": Expertos advierten que el rastreo de smartphones para encontra el coronavirus puede pavimentar un gran camino a la vigilancia masiva
Otro medio que levantó la alarma fue Politico con el titular: La privacidad amenazada en Occidente por combatir el virus
Está claro que gracias a la tecnología GPS se puede hacer un seguimiento bastante preciso, se puede saber dónde vive, dónde trabaja, con quien se junta (por proximidad entre los móviles que transmiten beams o beacons) y dónde, con qué frecuencia visita x lugares, los sitios turisticos o de consumo que frecuenta, información obviamente detallada por una cronología que indica en qué hora, min y seg, si se estuvo moviendo o estuvo quieto. Un instrumento más del hoy llamado Big Data
Las más grandes tecnologías, medios de comunicación, y gobiernos están haciendo de "reguladores de información" contra las "fake news", unas falsas noticias que ellos mismos crean para generar confusión y desinformación en la sociedad actual, así es más fácil de dirigir a las masas hacia un futuro sin libertad de expresión, sin libre-pensamiento, sin democracia, es decir, sin libertad(es) y que además viola los derechos humanos, y las leyes que los mismos gobiernos crearon.
La tecnología es una poderosísima herramienta, saber usarla está en sus manos, ignorarla es dejar que otros la usen en su nombre para hacer bien o para hacer mal, algo que usted nunca sabrá.

2020.02.24 03:57 altovaliriano A Mulher Morena

“Sábado de personagens” ainda no domingo. Fazer o quê?
A mulher morena é uma das mais misteriosas personagens de As Crônicas de Gelo e Fogo. Seu nome e origem nunca foi revelado ao leitor. Pouco mais sabemos sobre ela, mas em resumo a mulher foi entregue por Euron a Victarion como um prêmio. Sabemos que ela é muda e que Victarion a considera bonita.
Porém, em determinado momento da história, fica evidente ao leitor de que a mulher morena é mais do que parece ser. A tripulação de Victarion resgata do mar Moqorro, um sacerdote de R’hllor enviado pelo Templo Vermelho para auxiliar Daenerys em Meereen, e leva-o a Victarion, pois o homem afirma estar sabendo de que o Capitão de Ferro corre perigo de morte. Quando um mal súbito atinge Victarion, ele e Moqorro vão à sua cabine e o seguinte ocorre:
Quando abriu a porta da cabine do capitão, a mulher morena se virou em sua direção, silenciosa e sorridente... mas, quando viu o sacerdote vermelho ao lado dele, seus lábios se afastaram de seus dentes, e ela sibilou em súbita fúria, como uma serpente. Victarion a acertou com as costas da mão boa e a derrubou no chão.
– Quieta, mulher. Vinho para nós dois. [...]
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
A hostilidade da mulher morena para com Moqorro parece uma indicação muito forte sobre a origem e propósito da personagem na história. A partir deste fato apenas, leitores foram levados às mais loucas especulações sobre a identidade da misteriosa serva-amante de Victarion. Entretanto, se o reino das especulações produz resultados estranhos, posso afirmar que as evidências presente no próprio texto não são menos estranhas. Se analisadas em sua literalidade, o texto produzido pelo próprio Martin aponta para direções completamente ininteligíveis.
Analisemos.

Fenótipo, aparência e semelhanças

Fenótipo é o resultado da expressão dos genes do organismo, da influência de fatores ambientais e da possível interação entre os dois. No contexto deste texto, o fenótipo da mulher morena é algo que poderia nos dar uma dica sobre sua herança genética.
Esse herança genética PODE nos ajudar a determinar a cultura na qual ela nasceu, mas é claro que isso não permite nos concluir com absoluta certeza que ela pertence esta cultura. Um bom exemplo de personagem cujo fenótipo pode ser usado para nos confundir é Sarella Sand, que pertence à cultura westerosi, apesar de que sua aparência denotaria ter nascido nas Ilhas do Verão.
Entretanto, diante das poucas informações disponíveis sobre a mulher morena, esta análise se torna necessária. Em verdade, o próprio Martin parece estar induzindo os leitores a realizar estas investigações, pois ele mesmo deposita dicas disso no texto:
Sua pele era negra. Não o marrom castanho dos ilhéus do Verão com seus navios cisne, nem o marrom-avermelhado dos senhores dos cavalos dothrakis, nem a cor de carvão-e-terra da pele da mulher morena*, mas negra. Mais negra que carvão, mais negra do que o azeviche, mais negra do que as asas de um corvo.*
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Na passagem acima, vê-se que Martin descarta através de Victarion que a mulher morena pertence às culturas dos Ilhéus do Verão e dos senhores de cavalo Dothraki. A exclusão das Ilhas do Verão é especialmente útil, haja vista onde Euron ALEGA ter encontrado a mulher morena:
INGLÊS: As a reward for his leal service, the new-crowned king had given Victarion the dusky woman, taken off some slaver bound for Lys.
PORTUGUÊS: Como recompensa por seu leal serviço, o recém-coroado rei dera a Victarion a morena, roubada de algum mercador de escravos a caminho de Lys*.*
(AFFC, O Pirata)
Eu acho curioso a forma como fica apenas implícito de que Euron teria capturado a Mulher Morena nos porões de um navio de escravos indo para Lys, quando, na verdade, nada disso está escrito no texto. Não se menciona qualquer navio, nem que ela era uma escrava. Tão facilmente como tomou Falia Flowers quando invadiram o Castelo dos Hewett, Euron poderia muito bem ter tomado a amante de um mercador de escravos.
Mas evitemos a interpretação segundo a qual Martin, a esta altura da história, está tentando nos confundir com jogos de palavras. Que outras opções de origem teria uma mulher “bela, com uma pele tão castanha quanto teca oleada”?
Aqueles que partirem para O Mundo de Gelo e Fogo em busca de auxílio encontrarão logo a seguinte referência sobre os habitantes de Naath:
O povo nativo da ilha é uma raça bonita e gentil, com rostos redondos, pele escura e grandes olhos suaves cor de âmbar, em geral salpicados de dourado.
[...~]
O Povo Pacífico sempre teve um bom preço, dizem, pois são tão inteligentes quanto gentis, belos de se olhar e rápidos em aprender a obediência*. É relatado que* uma casa de prazer em Lys é famosa por suas garotas naathi*, que usam diáfanos vestidos de seda e são adornadas com asas de borboletas alegremente pintadas.*
(TWOIAF, Naath)
As descrições tem certa compatibilidade com as características relatadas da mulher morena. Entretanto, os característicos olhos amarelados teriam sido notados facilmente mesmo por alguém tão tapado quanto Victarion. Por outro lado, depois da demonstração de fúria perante Moqorro, acredito que pouco classificariam a mulher morena como “gentil”.
Caso continuemos a pesquisa no livro de meistre Yandell, logo encontraremos uma outra descrição sobre o povo de Leng que é bastante capciosa:
Os lengii nativos são talvez os mais altos de todas as raças da humanidade, com muitos homens entre eles chegando a mais de dois metros de altura, e alguns até com dois metros e meio. De pernas longas e esguios, pele cor de teca oleada*, eles têm grandes olhos dourados e supostamente podem ver mais longe e melhor do que outros homens,* especialmente à noite. Embora formidavelmente altas*, as mulheres lengii são notoriamente ágeis e encantadoras, de* beleza insuperável*.*
(TWOIAF, Leng)
A descrição da pele é inteiramente simétrica àquela da mulher morena (fornecida por VIctarion). Na verdade, é curioso perceber que a única vez que a expressão “teca oleada” é usada para descrever a pele de alguém ocorre com a mulher morena. A única outra vez em que essa analogia é usada é como o povo de Leng, fora da saga principal, em um livro acessório.
Entretanto, há mais problemas aqui do que soluções. Novamente temos a descrição do dourado dos olhos (que seriam difíceis de Victarion ignorar), a altura formidável e a beleza insuperável. Ainda que possamos alegar que Victarion é um homem alto, próximo dos 2 metros de altura (segundo estimativas dos leitores), seria difícil que ele ignorasse que a mulher morena fosse muito alta para uma mulher e de beleza insuperável.
Desse modo, acredito ser seguro descartar Leng e seguir. Não há mais nenhuma referência a características que se assemelhem à da mulher morena (fora das Ilhas do Verão, que já foram descartadas em nossas premissas acima), porém existe uma referência a um povo no estrangeiro que por vezes sofre o mesmo destino reservado à mulher morena:
Não é surpresa que Sothoros seja pouco povoado quando comparado com Westeros ou Essos. Duas dezenas de pequenas vilas de comércio se amontoam na costa norte ‒ vilas de lama e sangue*, alguns dizem: molhadas, úmidas e cheias de miséria, onde aventureiros, trapaceiros, exilados e* prostitutas das Cidades Livres e dos Sete Reinos vêm fazer fortuna.
Há riquezas escondidas entre as selvas, pântanos e taciturnos rios banhados pelo sol do sul, sem dúvida, mas, para cada homem que encontra ouro, pérolas ou especiarias preciosas, há uma centena que encontra apenas a morte. Os corsários das Ilhas Basilisco atacam esses assentamentos, levando cativos que serão mantidos confinados em Garra ou na Ilha das Lágrimas antes de serem vendidos para os mercados de carne da Baía dos Escravos, ou para as casas de prazer e jardins de prazer de Lys*.*
(TWOIAF, Sothoros)
Embora seja muito vago afirmar que esta é uma origem em potencial para a mulher morena (pois, virtualmente, é o mesmo que dizer que ela poderia ter vindo de qualquer lugar do mundo), a menção de que prostitutas das cidades livres que se aventuram em Sothoryos podem acabar em Lys pode nos ajudar a esclarecer algumas dúvidas sobre seu comportamento esquisito (vide abaixo).
Portanto, ainda que não possamos determinar sua origem, a análise acima nos permite começar a descartar algumas opções. Inclusive, percebemos que a mulher morena tem um pele de uma tonalidade ímpar (teca oleada), o que pode indicar que ela pertença a um povo que ainda não foi descrito pro Martin.
Entrentanto, há uma última analogia que não pode deixar de ser registrada:
“Não quero nenhuma de suas sobras”, dissera desdenhosamente ao irmão, mas quando Olho de Corvo declarou que a mulher seria morta se não a aceitasse, fraquejou. A língua dela tinha sido arrancada, mas exceto por este pormenor estava intacta, e era também bela, com uma pele tão castanha quanto teca oleada. Mas, por vezes, quando a olhava, surpreendia-se lembrando da primeira mulher que o irmão lhe dera*, para fazer dele um homem.*
(AFFC, O Pirata)
Sendo Euron alguém conhecido por apreciar jogos mentais, a escolha de alguém que se assemelhasse com a primeira mulher que Victarion havia recebido pode ter sido deliberada. Este detalhe pode ter sido essencial para capturar a memória afetiva de Victarion e fazer com que ele mais facilmente aceitasse o presente de Euron.
Não fica claro se por “primeira mulher” Victarion está falando de sua primeira esposa (que morreu no parto de uma menina natimorta) ou se ele estaria se referindo à primeira mulher com que se deitou. Curiosamente, esta dúvida se aprofunda quando vemos observamos os pensamentos de Victarion no capítulo liberado de Os Ventos do Inverno:
[Spoilers de Os Ventos do Inverno]Enquanto estava na proa do Vitória de Ferro vendo os navios mercantes de Uma-orelha desaparecem um a um ao oeste, as faces dos primeiros inimigos que matara voltaram a Victarion Greyjoy. Ele pensou em seu primeiro navio, em sua primeira mulher.
(TWOW, Victarion)
De todo modo, o importante é que a mulher morena desperta nele esta memória afetiva. Com efeito, o próprio Victarion não parece compreender porque aceitou a mulher ou mesmo porque não cumpriu seu desejo de sacrificá-la, a despeito de ter a perfeita noção de que qualquer presente de Euron é um presente de grego:
A mulher morena não respondeu. Euron havia cortado sua língua antes de dá-la para ele. Victarion não duvidada que o Olho de Corvo tivesse dormido com ela também. Era o jeito do seu irmão. Os presentes de Euron são envenenados, o capitão lembrara a si mesmo no dia em que a mulher morena veio a bordo*. Não quero nenhum de seus restos. Decidira, então, que cortaria a garganta dela e a atiraria ao mar, um sacrifício de sangue para o Deus Afogado.* De alguma forma, contudo, jamais chegara nem perto de fazer isso*.*
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Pior, esta sensação de familiaridade poderia justificar também a razão pela qual Victarion confiava seus segredos a ela. Não que a mudez da mulher não tenha parte nisso. Afinal, é o que os próprios pensamentos de Victarion indicam:
Cada vez mais, temia que tivessem navegado longe demais, em mares desconhecidos onde até mesmo os deuses eram estranhos... mas, essas dúvidas, ele confidenciava apenas para sua mulher morena, que não tinha língua para repeti-las.
[...]
Victarion podia falar com a mulher morena. Ela nunca tentava responder.
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Contudo, isto não explica outros momentos em que Victarion observa ter uma conexão com a mulher morena que independem da confidencialidade verbal. Para estas situações, a memória afetiva me parece funcionar como uma justificativa muito melhor:
A mulher morena sabia o que ele queria sem que tivesse que pedir. Quando ele relaxou em sua cadeira, ela pegou um pano úmido e macio da bacia e o colocou em sua testa.
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Outros exemplos disto são a forma como Victarion parece confiar na mulher morena não só mais do que em Meistre Kerwin, capturado em escudoverde (o que é até justificável, pois os nascidos do ferro parecem desconfiar dos meistres, especialmente em um que servia a uma Casa inimiga derrotada)...
– Pegue esta sujeira e vá. – Victarion acenou para a mulher morena. – Ela pode fazer o curativo.
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
... mas talvez até mais do que confia em Moqorro:
– [...] Gostaria que eu o sangrasse?
Victarion agarrou a mulher morena pelo pulso e a puxou para si.
Ela fará isso. Vá orar ao seu deus vermelho. Acenda seu fogo, e me diga o que vê.
Os olhos escuros de Moqorro pareceram brilhar.
– Vejo dragões.
(TWOW, Victarion)
No aspecto sexual, mesmo diante de sete mulheres treinadas para o prazer pelo Yunkaítas, Victarion diz-se satisfeito com sua mulher morena até que chegue o dia de tomar Daenerys para si:
Os senhores de escravos de Yunkai as haviam treinado no caminho dos sete suspiros, mas não era para isso que Victarion precisava delas. Sua mulher morena era suficiente para satisfazer seus apetites até que pudesse chegar a Meereen e reivindicar sua rainha.
(ADWD, Victarion)
A confiança na mulher morena é a tal ponto acentuada, que Victarion passa a suspeitar que seu meistre poderia estar causando a infecção do ferimento em sua mão. Ela é uma das duas únicas pessoas tratando seu ferimento em todo o barco, mas ele não só a exclui da lista de suspeitos como confidencia a ela suas suspeitas sobre Kerwin:
– Se não foi Serry, então quem? – perguntou para a mulher morena. – Poderia aquele rato daquele meistre estar causando isso? Meistres conhecem feitiços e outros truques. Ele pode estar usando um para me envenenar, esperando que eu o deixe cortar minha mão fora. – Quanto mais pensava nisso, mais provável lhe parecia. – O Olho de Corvo o deu para mim, criatura miserável que é. – Euron tirara Kerwin de Escudoverde, onde estava a serviço de Lorde Chester, cuidando de seus corvos e ensinando seus filhos, ou talvez de outros nas redondezas. E como o rato guinchava quando um dos mudos de Euron o entregara a bordo do Vitória de Ferro, arrastando-o pela corrente em seu pescoço. – Se isso é por vingança, ele se engana comigo. Foi Euron quem insistiu que ele fosse levado, para evitar que causasse danos com suas aves. – Seu irmão lhe dera três gaiolas de corvos também, para que Kerwin pudesse mandar notícias de sua viagem, mas Victarion proibira que fossem soltas. Que fique de molho, se perguntando o que está acontecendo.
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
É claro que pode-se arguir que Victarion simplesmente é burro e não vê coisas que simplesmente estão acontecendo sob seu nariz. Entretanto, o que me surpreende neste diálogo é que ele cita Kerwin ser um presente envenenado de Euron como motivo para sua suspeita, sendo que ele está falando diretamente para o primeiro presente que ele mesmo julgou envenenado.
Assim, me parece que isto demonstra que Victarion realmente desenvolveu um elo afetivo com a mulher, não APENAS que ele é burro.

Comportamentos e habilidades curiosos

A mulher morena é estranha e age de forma estranha.
A primeira coisa a se registrar são as suspeitas do fandom. Os leitores em geral acreditam que a mulher morena espia Victarion para Euron. Pouquíssimos arriscam dizer que ela é uma espiã dos magos de Qarth (Warlocks). Entretanto, tanto os primeiros quanto os últimos dizem que a espionagem se dá de forma mágica.
Alguns dizem que Euron entra na pele da mulher morena (assumindo como verdadeira a teoria de que Euron é um troca-peles poderoso) para interagir com Euron. Outros dizem que Euron ou os warlocks simplesmente usam os ouvidos e olhos da mulher morena para clariaudiência ou clarividência, sem propriamente ter controle sobre ela.
Porém, eu não acredito que essas especulações tenham fundamento textual, mas partem de um sentimento geral de suspeita que é causado pelo que está no texto. Examinemos cada caso.
Lembram-se que eu disse que a menção de O Mundo de Gelo e Fogo sobre “prostitutas das cidades livres que se aventuram em Sothoryos poderem acabar em Lys” iria nos ajudar a esclarecer o comportamento esquisito da mulher morena? Pois bem, chegou a hora.
Victarion estava guerreando no Vago, quando retorna a sua cabine para ter com a mulher morena:
Em sua apertada cabine de popa, foi encontrar a mulher morena, úmida e pronta*; a batalha talvez também tivesse aquecido seu sangue.*
(AFFC, O Pirata)
Não é estranho que uma mulher que havia sido capturada e entregue a Victarion como uma escrava estivesse “úmida e pronta” assim que seu atual captor irrompesse pela porta vestido em armadura, suado e sangrando?
É claro que simplesmente poderíamos, como Victarion (mau sinal...), assumir que a batalha a tivesse excitado. Ou que Victarion seja mais atraente do que podemos pensar.
Mas não seria igualmente possível pensar que este seria um indício de que a mulher morena tem experiência como concubina?
É sabido que Martin fez com que os meistres da Cidadela tivesse um conhecimento de medicina mais avançado do que aqueles disponíveis para os praticante da medicina da Idade Média do mundo real. Entretanto, não está claro que este grau avançado de desenvolvimento também aconteça nas demais civilizações do resto do mundo que Martin criou.
Na verdade, parece que não, pois Mirri Maz Durr cita que aprendeu artes curativas com o Arquimeistre Marwyn, o que parece indicar que a Cidadela detém os melhores conhecimentos médicos do mundo:
Uma cantora de lua de Jogos Nhai deu-me de presente as suas canções de parto, uma mulher do seu povo cavaleiro ensinou-me as magias do capim, dos grãos e dos cavalos, e um meistre das Terras do Poente abriu um cadáver e mostrou-me todos os segredos que se escondem sob a pele.
Sor Jorah Mormont interveio.
– Um meistre?
– Chamava-se Marwyn – respondeu a mulher no Idioma Comum. – Do mar. Do outro lado do mar. As Sete Terras, disse ele. Terras do Poente. Onde os homens são de ferro e os dragões governam. Ensinou-me esta língua.
(AGOT, Daenerys VII)
Ocorre que a mulher morena parece ter bons conhecimentos sobre como tratar um ferimento:
A morena lavou o ferimento com vinagre fervido*. [...] Victarion dirigiu-se à morena enquanto ela enfaixava sua mão com* linho*. [...]*
(AFFC, O Pirata)
A mulher morena estava enfaixando sua mão com linho limpo, enrolando a faixa seis vezes ao redor da palma, quando Aguado Pyke apareceu [...].
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Em verdade, o tratamento que a mulher morena vinha aplicando a Victarion era justamente o que o meistre aplicava após punção dos ferimentos:
Sangue era bom. Victarion grunhiu em aprovação. Sentou-se firme enquanto o meistre secava, apertava e limpava o pus, com quadrados de tecido macio fervidos em vinagre*. Quando terminou, a água limpa na bacia tinha se tornado uma sopa espumante. A visão por si só podia fazer qualquer homem enjoar.*
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
A mulher morena até demonstrou ter mais intimidade com este tipo de ferimentos do que o próprio meistre Kerwin. O rosado meistre não é referência de estômago forte, claro, mas a reação de nojo da mulher morena é tão econômica, que parece apontar para certa prática no assunto:
O pus que irrompeu era grosso e amarelo como leite azedo. A mulher morena torceu o nariz para o cheiro, o meistre segurou a ânsia de vômito e até Victarion sentiu seu estômago revirar.
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Por outro lado, apesar de ficar parecendo pela passagem abaixo que Victarion também poderia conhecer estes procedimentos (o que não seria impossível, já que o Cão de Caça demonstrou conhece-los também quando estava com Arya), eu acredito que Victarion simplesmente está com a memória ruim, pois quem lavou primeiro o ferimento foi a mulher morena (vide citação acima):
Um arranhão de um gatinho, Victarion disse para si mesmo, depois. Lavara o corte, despejara um pouco de vinagre fervido sobre ele, enfaixara-o e deixou de pensar naquilo, acreditando que a dor diminuiria e a mão se curaria com o tempo. Em vez disso, a ferida tinha infeccionado, até que Victarion começou a se perguntar se a lâmina de Serry estava envenenada. Por que mais a ferida se recusaria a sarar?
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
De fato, como o procedimento está correto e a medicina westerosi é mais avançada do que a medieval, muitos leitores se teorizam que a mulher morena poderia estar de alguma forma envenenando Victarion, ou ao menos matando-o devagar ao fazer algo para não permitir a cicatrização do corte.
Há até mesmo uma passagem em que vimos que o único procedimento sugerido pelo meistre que não é adotado pela mulher morena é tentar drenar o ferimento em local aberto:
O meistre sugerira que o ferimento seria mais bem drenado no convés, no ar fresco e à luz do sol, mas Victarion proibira. Aquilo não era algo que sua tripulação pudesse ver. Estavam a meio mundo de casa, longe demais para deixá-los ver seu capitão de ferro começar a enferrujar.
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Caso ela realmente estivesse piorando a condição de Victarion, evitar o convés seria uma atitude compatível. O problema é descobrir com que finalidade ela estaria fazendo isso. O que nos leva ao próximo e principal item desta lista
· Reconhece Moqorro como perigoso
A reação explosiva da mulher morena ao ver Moqorro parece significar que ela o acha perigoso. Mas perigoso como? Para quem? Bem, a resposta depende de saber quem realmente é a mulher morena e quais seus propósitos.
Aqueles que acham que ela está sendo possuída magicamente ou servindo de olhos e ouvidos para poderes de clarividência e clariaudiência, seja por parte de Euron ou dos Warlocks, pensam que estes sabem que Moqorro põe seus planos em riscos, pois os poderes do sacerdote vermelho permitem saber que a mulher morena é uma marionente.
Já aqueles que acreditam que a mulher morena está envenenando ou adoecendo Victarion pensam que a reação dela se deu em decorrência de que ela sabe dos poderes “curativos” do sacerdote e que todo o trabalho que ela está tendo será perdido no momento em que Moqorro entrar em ação.
E há aqueles que acreditam que a mulher morena sabe que Moqorro não está ali para curar Victarion, mas sim para trazer um sofrimento ainda maior. Nesta hipótese a mulher morena estaria tentando avisar Victarion sobre o perigo que Moqorro representa, mas não tem como expressar isso devido à mudez e à personalidade tosca de Victarion.
Porém, todos concordam em um ponto: a mulher reconheceu Moqorro. A pergunta não deveria ser “que tipo de perigo ela acha que Moqorro representa”. Isso acho dificílimo de adivinhar. Mas parece um pouco mais factível se especular sobre “de onde ela conhece Moqorro ou alguém como Moqorro”.
Para isso precisamos listar as características visíveis sobre Moqorro. Aquelas que fariam alguém entender quem ele é logo à primeira vista:
  1. Porte físico impressionante
  2. Cor de pele singular
  3. Tatuagens de chamas no rosto
Quanto ao porte físico, duvido que isso faça alguma diferença para a mulher morena, haja vista que há homens como Andrik, o Sério entre os homens de ferro.
A cor de pele da pele de Moqorro pode gerar duas reações. Uma demonstração simples de racismo, como ocorreu com os primeiros Ghiscari a chegarem às Ilhas do Verão (TWOIAF, As Ilhas do Verão). Ou a cor pode realmente vir de algo que lembre “um homem que foi tostado nas chamas até que sua carne carbonizou e caiu soltando fumaça de seus ossos”.
Nesse último caso, a cor da pele de Moqorro denunciaria algum grau avançado de poder místico. O fato de a mulher morena ter percebido isto induz a pensa que ela pode ter tido algum encontro com este tipo de pessoa no passado. Um encontro traumático, claro.
Por fim, se forem as tatuagens, simplesmente a mulher morena tem algo contra sacerdotes de R’hllor.
A parte interessante é que Moqorro não mostra interesse algum na mulher. Mas Moqorro não mostra interesse algum em ninguém, nem mesmo os tripulantes que pediram que Victarion o matasse.
Os homens de Euron são compostos de “mudos e mestiços”. Isso quer dizer que os mestiços não são necessariamente mudos. Vimos, inclusive, que um dos filhos bastardos mestiços de Euron fala. Portanto, cortar a língua da mulher morena foi uma atitude deliberada de Euron. Ou ela era parte da tripulação como os demais mudos?
Por outro lado, diante de tantas possibilidades de origens estrangeiras para a mulher, fica a pergunta: ela fala a língua comum? Sequer entende o que Victarion está falando?

Propósito e futuro

Se a mulher é uma espiã de Euron, então Euron está fazendo uma farta colheita. Mas de que serve toda esta informação agora? Será útil a Euron ou aos Warlocks no futuro saber que Moqorro está com Daenerys? Ou as notícias de que Daenerys está morta já podem ser suficientes?
Em suma, que futuro existirá para a mulher morena se tantas pessoas apostam na morte de Victarion? O próprio Victarion pensa em fazê-la de camareira:
– Ela será minha esposa, e você será minha camareira. – Uma camareira sem língua nunca deixaria escapar nenhum segredo.
Ele poderia ter dito mais, mas foi então que o meistre chegou, batendo na porta da cabine, tímido como um rato.
(ADWD, O Pretendente de Ferro)
Há também a possibilidade de que ela carregue um filho de Euron em si. Afinal, o próprio VIctarion suspeita de que Euron já havia se deitado com a mulher antes de passa-la a ele.
Por terminar as especulações sem spoilers, seria a mulher morena uma feiticeira com poderes próprios e um objetivo claro em Meereen?

Especulações com spoilers de Ventos do Inverno

O capítulo de Victarion em Ventos do Inverno não é completo. Ele termina com algumas notas sem transcrição literal dos eventos:
❖ A mulher morena sangra o braço de Victarion em uma bacia. Victarion esfrega o sangue no berrante, murmurando suavemente para ele “​Meu berrante… dragões…”;
❖ Victarion masturba a mulher morena, não há penetração. Ele pensa que não gosta de transar antes da batalha;
❖ A mulher morena o ajuda a colocar a armadura, ele faz um discurso vibrante para a tripulação, e eles velejam em direção a Meereen.
(TWOW, Victarion)
Como a mulher morena é citada em todas as notas finasi, algumas perguntas ficam no ar:
Se Euron ou os Warlocks estão assistindo VIctarion reinvindicar o berrante via mulher morena, eles teriam algo preparado para fazer caso isso acontecesse? Fazia parte dos planos?
Qual é a importância de Victarion masturbar a mulher morena? Teria alguma relação com o braço que ele usa para fazer isso? Victarion usaria seu braço fumacento para fazer algo do tipo? Por que diabos ele faria algo do tipo?
A mulher morena fica para trás no navio quando os nascidos no ferro descem para atacar Meereen. Ela pode sabotar alguma parte dos planos? Teria alguma relação com o Atador de Dragões?

2019.11.04 22:52 epSos-DE [Question] How to get Cita Previa appointment for the NIE in Barcelona legally ?

[Question] How to get Cita Previa appointment for the NIE in Barcelona legally ?
The appointment system for the extranjeria in Barcelona has to improve. Most of the time it said: " En este momento no hay citas disponibles. " ..... People lose jobs and relatives over this !

The appointment is required for the first time registration. The renewals of many documents can be done online without the appointment frustration.

The whole issue is that the police is not transparent about the process for how to get the appointment. The number of appointments is limited. There are more people than appointments, because the Spanish immigration process is designed badly. Not just for Latinos, Australians or the US folks. It's equally as bad for the Europeans too !

The IT system is set up to release the appointments for the cita previa at the specific time. The different police offices have a different time and a different day of the week for the release of the new appointments for their office. Knowing that exact time is the KEY to getting the appointment online. The police is not transparent about this, but they should be, instead of just saying try later all the time.

We read multiple sources that one has to try to get the appointment in the system around the 8:00 AM on Monday. Did try that. We were fast, did try about 15 times for 30 minutes from 07:59, and then every half hour till 13 AM. Did not work anything in Barcelona for EU citizens, only for the Sant Joan office that is for non-EU citizens at the time of writing. Yes dear non-EU migrants, the Spanish national police made it even worth for the EU people than for you. You are welcome !

The extranjeria office in Barcelona for EU citizens is at Rambla de Guipúscoa, 74, 08020 Barcelona. It's a large office with sometimes only two people working the appointment desk for EU citizens :-) We emailed the extranjeria, the national police office, their IT guy in the building, and the ministry of internal affairs. Read the Google map review comments from their building and figured this out:

In their IT system, the appointments for EU nationals were available :
The police IT employee officially and wrongly confirmed by eMail that the new appointments for Barcelona are released on Monday 8:00 and on Thursday 8:00. This information was valid for the office of Passeig de Sant Joan 189, which is not for EU citizens. :-( ! The canceled appointments from the other people are released into the system at the random time, when they cancel them. (at least it's true in 2019, till it's changed.)

For the EU certificates / Policia Certificados UE :
(Times change, if the offices change them internally !)
+ On Monday 8:00 (Summer 2019) for Barcelona office / 9:00 AM there were appointments for the Sabadell office. (50 min. train ride from Barcelona.) 9:00 AM for the office at Granollers (50 min bus ride). 10:00 AM for the office at Cerdanyola (1h train ride).
+ On Tuesday (Nov. 2019) between 10:30 - 11:02 there were appointments for the police office of Rambla de Guipúscoa 74, in Barcelona.
+ On Wednesday (Nov. 2019) at 08:30 for the offices of Sant Cugat and Badalona (1 hour metro ride from Barcelona). Around 08:45 for the offices of Igualada (2 hour train ride from Barcelona.)
+ On Thursday (Nov. 2019) around 12:00, 12:30 and 13:00, there were some appointments for smaller cites around Barcelona in the system. Badalona, Mataro, Prat, Cerdanyola, Manresa.... Badalona was slightly before 12:00, from 11:30 to 12:02.

Some people say that in the past there were some appointments around: Sunday 24:00 and then on Monday 07:00 AM. Could be an urban legend from people in the different time zone.
Most people say that the appointments are available around 08:00 am Monday, which was true in the summer time. In the winter time those appointments are for the office at Passeig de Sant Joan 189, which at the time of writing was for non-EU citizen certificates. Thx. dear Spanish police for NOT providing services to EU citizens :-)

Looks like the different police offices release their appointments around different times and days, but mostly around 08:00 or 08:30, or 09:00, or 09:30 ... 10:00...etc... Would be much better if they were transparent on their website about this !

If as an EU citizen you can not get an appointment, then just go to the correct office without an appointment and see if they let you in between other people's appointments, or at least give you a dated stamp on the papers at the entrance desk. Such a dated stamp can serve as legal proof OR they also use it to let you into the waiting room, when the issue is urgent or when the papers expire on the same week.

Feel free to eMail to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) AND to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) AND then also use this contact form: https://sede.mir.gob.es/nfrontal/solicitud_informacion.html to ask for information on how the appointment system works, what time the new appointments are in the system, and why it fails to serve EU citizens ?


Same irritating message about how shitty the current appointment system is.

I need some advice, or help, or maybe a sort of step-by-step guide? I really don't actually know.
So, a bit of background. I am a trans woman from the UK, I moved to Spain a few years back and have been living here since. I basically need to know how to get HRT, but I have no experience with the medical system in Spain (not to mention, hardly any experience with the system in the UK anyway) so this is all very new to me.

An article came up for a facility for people under 24 (which is good, since I'm under 24, but also over 18) in my local area recently, which seemed promising (https://www.valledeelda.com/noticias/12659-la-concejalia-de-juventud-de-petrer-sera-un-punto-de.html) but I can't tell if it's already accessible or how I organise something. It also says the services are for available for young people "questioning" their identity, but I think I'm a little beyond that now. I am in the Alicante area, which I think is important to mention since some areas seem to handle stuff differently?

I have a tarjeta sanitaria/SIP card and I've been paying Social Security for about 5 months now. Is this enough for coverage? Do I need anything else? I don't have residency yet (I don't earn enough money), but my parents do.

I'm just having a hard time finding up to date information and I really need some help. I hardly know what I'm looking for in English, which makes it a bit hard to search for in Spanish.

I just need to know what to do. Do I need to talk to a general practitioner? Are they the person named on my tarjeta? I sure hope I don't have to phone anyone... I can read and write Spanish pretty well, and even speak it semi-decently, but I really suck at hearing, especially on the phone.

Otherwise, it's just minor questions:
I kinda just want to be ready for any other costs I need to prepare for.
I hope I'm not getting too ahead of myself...

If there's a better place I can ask this, please let me know!

I don't have any pals I can ask about this, so if you or anyone you know could help me, or if you know of any helpful articles (English or Spanish), or maybe even the email of a helpful doctor (I might be pushing my luck there, though), I'd really, really appreciate it!

I hope this is okay to ask!

Thank you so so much!
(If I've written anything in a confusing way, I can try to clarify. I'm just tired and anxious and stuff)

EDIT 2019/04/17:
Thanks to BayaTamate's post (https://www.reddit.com/asktransgendecomments/be07oy/spain_i_need_to_know_how_to_get_hrt_basically/el2ef0a?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x), I've read the article and have a better understanding of the process I should expect here. I've also found an appointment form online (for Alicante and Valencia) here: http://www.san.gva.es/cita_previa/citaprevia_cas.html. It's available in Castillian and Valenciana, which is helpful. They also have an app. You can use this as long as you've got a tarjeta sanitaria. If you've not got one and you're in a similar situation to me, I could let you know what I did to get one, based on experience.
I'm gonna give the app a go at some point and see what I can get done. I just need to sip some confidence juice first.
If all goes well, I will post an update to the process, in case anybody needs help with this in future!

United Nations Commission for the Investigation of Terrestrial Abnormalities

Majestic 12 Initiative
Report: Mar. 2071
Overseeing Directors: N/A

UNCITA Final Report: Omnihallucinative Event

This will be the final report from UNCITA, detailing the Omnihallucinative Event that took place worldwide on the Ides of March (date determined to be relevant to anomalous events based on data collected from memetically-infected subjects) during the "Witching Hour" (informal chronal designation, determined to be of significance based on observational data collected during long-term study of Anglish supernatural defenses) [15/03/2071, 3:00 AM GMT]. Previous efforts to contain the spread of memetically-induced F24 cases have been determined to be a failure and Neurathian Bootstrap Protocols have been unsuccessful in bringing about recovery in subjects following the Event. After the disbursal of this report, UNCITA will be dissolved under the unanimous order of all acting UNCITA directors and the Majestic 12 Initiative shuttered. UNCITA personnel will be actively sequestered in order to provide a skilled and diverse core of individuals who will survive the oncoming events and prevent the extinction of humanity during the projected omnicide.
 
On March 15th 2071, every individual on Earth experienced a simultaneous hallucination, awakening those who were asleep, in comas, or otherwise preserved in a state of unconsciousness. This Ominhallucinative Event has been determined to have been the result of an immense occult pressure on the Universe, localized in certain regions on Earth and manifested as pinpricks in space-time transmitting memetic signals that "latched on" to the human zeitgeist. UNCITA multireality scouts employing thaumaturgic techniques and DMT meditation have made brief mental forrays into the dimension exerting these pressures, and scant data has been collected before each scout suffered brain death. The available information paints a picture of a deep, throbbing, metaphysical abyss of pain and vice that seeks to expel its subjects into our own reality and colonize it for their own use. Theological, historical, and supernatural evidence has suggested that this is not the first time contact has been made between this reality and that of these malevolent entities. How they were sealed into what some in UNCITA have dubbed a "prison dimension" is currently unknown. The mechanisms of the Caspian Gates are likewise currently unknown.
Below is an informational account of the hallucination (which primarily took the form of rapid visual and auditory inputs), as experienced by humanity.
Four Horsemen,
one of pestilence atop a white steed,
one of war atop a red steed,
one of famine atop a black steed,
and one of death to represent the collapse of a great empire.
 
Now: a figure erecting a great wall to contain a horde of demons headed by titanic avatars, Gog and Magog. Derbent, but ancient, hosting colossal gates, locked with arcane expertise as a seal on those that would invade and conquer human civilization. The gates stretch some thirty feet in height. It is long past the era of the figure that first built the walls, but they remain secure. Protecting, ever-watchful.
 
Once more, the setting shifts. The Haifa Disaster. Then, we travel. We see the epicenter, 30 kilometers southeast, the city of Tel Megiddo. We see below, below the layers that have been uncovered, deep underneath, a pulsing sphere of nothingness, a maw into another space. It beats, heartlike, and grows in size, cracking the stone that the city was built on.
 
The world is burning. Millions of indistinct, bestial soldiers march across the landscapes of Earth. Humanity seeks refuge in death, a psychopomp sprung forth from human consciousness and made manifest with an offering from its herald.
 
Religiosity is upended. There is no God or Heaven to point to, no ultimate supernatural savior descending from above.
There is only Hell.

SCENE CHANGE/INTERMISSION

Listen, folks. Let’s be straight with each other. We all knew that there was some zany shit going on from the get-go. If you move through the source material with a toothbrush-fine comb, it’s clear that ever since the beginning of what was billed as “A Normal Day”, the abnormal has reigned supreme.
  • Kidnapped by dark forces, Camille is immediately able to glean that one of her captors has a “thick French accent”, despite the fact that she herself is French and they are speaking French. Once she flees the dungeon, she is immediately able to tell that she’s in Italy due to the presence of “mountains” and “yellow buildings”, neither of which are specific indicators of the Italian peninsula. Now, this could be taken as a lucky guess...but what if the truth was something darker? What if, from the start, Camille had been psycho-prepped by a group far more sinister than a cabal of international art thieves?
Let’s move onto [the second installment - A Normal Day Part II.
  • Immediately after exiting the lair of (probably) Elmyr de Hory, Camille encounters Ferdinando for the first time, moseying along the streets unaccompanied, despite apparently being over a century in age. Ferdinando immediately presses Camille to go the police station where his grandson works, jumping ahead of her in the conversation several times.
  • Camille enters the "police station" and gets the "feeling she is being watched." In the entire police station there is only one officer, whose name is Luca Delucci. Despite clearly being overworked and stuck in an understaffed precinct, Luca performs no paperwork, calls for assistance from no other police officers (Again, as there seemingly are none), shoddily takes down Camille’s account of events while displaying a remarkably carefree attitude and remaining nonplussed as Camille recounts stabbing her assailant right in the eye. Officer Delucci then whisks Camille away in his car, which is “not the best condition” with “ripped leather, trash on the floor.” It is clearly not an official police vehicle, as the PD would never allow one of their squad cars to deteriorate so badly. In fact, Luca could expect to be reprimanded and sanctioned for destruction of police property.
  • Luca and Camille return to the scene of the crime, which has mysteriously been scrubbed clean and fixed-up in the half-an-hour since she stumbled out of it. Instead of investigating further, and instead of putting her up in official accomodation, Luca decides to drop Camille off at his grandfather’s apartment. His grandfather? The one person who was around the crime scene after Camille - Ferdinando, who sent Camille to the police station in the first place. what is of more interest is where he brings her next: his grandfather's apartment.
What happens next?
  • Camille heads up the stairs to Ferdinando’s apartment. Notably, there’s no mention of any kind of elevator or stair-chair system that a man of Ferdinando’s advanced (100+) age would definitely need if he was to live in an above-ground apartment. The interior of the apartment is - just like Luca’s car- extremely messy. The paint on the walls has begun to chip, and it - probably - smells like old clothes. Ferdinando owns a television set from the 40s. Could this be taken as the 2040s? Yes, however television technology has not advanced enough between the 2040s and the 2060s for this to be at all notable. It can be concluded that Ferdinando’s television set is from the 1940s, making it one of the oldest in the entire world, and preceding Ferdinando’s birth by several decades. Archaic to be sure.
  • Camille enquires about the fate of Luca’s parents while the sprightly Ferdinando mixes sauce. He immediately stops mixing and stares at the floor for a solid 5 seconds, perhaps a short amount of time in Minecraft, but an age in actual conversation. Shortly thereafter, he stammers out that they died in a plane crash. Perhaps the memory of their loss was a painful one, but time heals all wounds and Mr. and Mrs Delucci had been dead long enough for Ferdinando to “practically raise” the adult Luca by himself.
  • As an aside, Ferdinando informs Camille that she “looks like an iKaajan child”. Not only is this weight-shaming (Camille is probably a perfectly healthy weight for her body-type and even if she wasn’t, it’s not his place to comment), it’s also extremely racist and misinformed, because famine isn’t exactly a common occurrence in modern South Africa. Ferdinando was born in the mid-60s and came of age in the 1980s, so what’s his excuse for being so bigoted?
  • Luca soon arrives. After verifying his age, Camille immediately asks him if he’s single, a sharp turnaround from her earlier thought that “[he was] kind of cute but it doesn’t matter.” Again folks, psycho-prepping goes a long way.
  • Ferdinando reveals that Luca lives across the hall from him and has an extra room, leaving us all to wonder why Luca didn’t leave Camille off to his apartment in the first place and dropped her off with his grandfather. Camille journeys to his apartment and conveniently encounters a shirtless Luca, who she is immediately overcome with lust for. Luca’s apartment is in a sorry state, though not as bad as Ferdinando’s, who is here described as his “father”, perhaps hinting at a stranger relationship than previously established.
  • The room that Camille is sent to only has a bed. There are no other furnishings. It’s four walls and a frame-supported mattress. The only people who generally have rooms like this are at risk of suicide and have recently been discharged from mental hospitals.
  • A mysterious assailant appears in Camille’s room in the middle of the night. She screams, and immediately the 100-year old Ferdinando, who doesn’t live in the apartment, rushes in with a handgun and unloads it right between the man’s eyes. How did he get there so quickly? Accusations are tacky, but maybe - just maybe - he was waiting? Ferdinando then leaves his apartment and gets his phone, telling Camille at the police are on their way. At no stage does he actually ring it.
  • Luca is soon found in his bedroom with a “massive bruise”, which has formed unnaturally fast. The cops eventually arrive in the form of a single officer called Mario, who recognises Luca, asks him to confirm that he’s Luca, and is then informed by Luca that he’s Luca, recognises Luca for a second time, and expresses concern for him. Mario could be mentally retarded, or he could just be having trouble remembering his lines. Mario also recognises Camille as “that Camille” after being told about her kidnapping, despite Luca having filled out no paper-work on the subject.
  • Camille eventually expresses surprise that Luca owns a car, despite having been in it earlier. Perhaps the food that Ferdinando gave her was drugged, or perhaps she was drugged from the start. Maybe she never left France. Maybe she’s never been to France, which would explain the accent issue.
So, what’s going on?
Everything that’s happened has simply been part of Camille’s ‘testing’ by a trio of occult priests in the service of dark forces. Ferdinando, symbolically, is the ‘Father’, Luca is the ‘Son’, and Mario is probably the ‘Spirit’, forming an unholy trinity that forms the core of all dark magic cells. We don't read about the strange supernatural paraphernalia lying about Ferdinando's apartment or his unusual getup. Nor do we read about the ways that Ferdinando ensures Camille never leaves his sight. By the time that Camille returns to Paris, the capstone to a dark scheme launched by Ferdinando and by the design of the Dark Lord Jimmy Page has already begun to gestate.
On the Ides of March, Camille is once again kidnapped and taken to a long-forgotten altar in the center of Tel Megiddo. It is there that she gives birth to the antichrist, the package of energies that bring an end to the process started by the horsemen years ago within the interstice. As death claims Camille, its attentions are already turning to the rest of us. The end of the world has started.

Back to our regularly scheduled programming:

Following the so-called "Omnihallucinative Event," nearly every country suffered some form of panic. Riots and looting motivated by religion across the UKA and its proxies, mass conversions across North America accelerating the process that began in the United States, stock market drops in the face of collapsing expected revenues, and so on. Anyone could be a demonic agent, a memetic zombie, or some sort of satanic cultist aligned against humanity as a whole.
Some attempted to rationalize the Event, and maintained that the events shown in the "Great Dream" were simply impossible, and that any abnormalities (if they existed at all) were based entirely in energies already found within the Universe. As trickles from UNCITA reports and Derbent experiments began to make their way into the news cycle though, these viewpoints were consigned to a dwindling minority.
In secular countries, protests were focused on pressuring the government to make preparations for whatever event would be coming in the wake of the Event. Individual citizens practiced doomsday prepping en masse and local governments were the quickest to react. However, even with their best efforts, there wasn't enough time to erect barriers against what would be taking place.
[Geological Survey of Palestine, 16/03/2071 3:00 AM]
[Notable seismic shocks have been detected in the epicenter of the Haifa Earthquake, identified as Tel Megiddo national park. Approx. 30 minutes into the continuous seismic disturbance, on-site observers reported the emergence of a sinkhole in Tel Megiddo, consuming the entire city. Depth cannot currently be gauged. A thin fissure has been observed spiking Northwards from the site. Drone reconnaissance has shown that it is extending as far as Southern Syria.]
 
Open Statement from the Syrian Government to the Nations of the World
Within one day of the Omnihallucinative Event, Syria has been brought to the brink of state collapse. Critical government and military personnel have been relocated to Northern governates. Contact with Damascus has been lost, though the city has not yet fallen. Nearly the entirety of Rif Dimashq Governorate has been consumed by extrareality entities that the Syrian military has been unable to effectively combat.
Entities have emerged from a "three dimensional hole" centered on Nabi Habeel Mosque, a suspected site of occult significance. Estimated enemy combatants numbering from the hundreds of thousands to the low millions and growing. This is a request to any and all fellow nations for any military aid possible.
Early reports from Syrian intelligence have identified four entities that are larger than others in the theater and that appear to be actively coordinating combat activities.
 
Synthesis of Available Data on the Pearl River Delta Megacity Attacks
In the Pearl River Delta Megacity, thousands have been killed in an ongoing genocide by malignant entities spilling forth from a point near the center of Guangzhou. Eyewitness reports have described a large, black blot hovering in space which appears to be the source of the invaders, as laid out in the Great Dream. Drone footage has captured a particularly large entity idling near the core of these events. A nude woman approximately 3 meters in height is suspended above even some buildings by seven arachnid limbs sprouting from her back. Comparisons are being drawn between this entity and that spotted in Mongolia several years ago.
Entities have been sighted even in the outskirts of the Pearl River Delta Megacity, and much of the region's urban area is saturated with demonic combatants.
 
Open Statement from the Yemeni Government to the Nations of the World
Yemeni essential government personnel have been evacuated to secure positions. A tear in space-time has emerged in the the Barran Temple as in Syria and Southern China. The entities emerging from this tear are led by a figure that has self-identified as the "Queen of Sheba," who is capable of layering her vocalizations with memetic triggers inducing compulsion in a subject. It is suspected that the emergence of the Queen of Sheba is directly connected to the events that transpired in Sana'a in 2068.
Ma'rib Governate will likely soon fall. Yemen is requesting immediate military aid from any and all nations.
 
Deep in Mexico, the God of Death has begun to move South, bringing it with it a contingent of thousands of devotees who seek its protection. Its movement is slow and deliberate. Folk Catholics are drawn to the entity in great masses, sacrificing themselves, or falling into the wake of its followers.

Unauthorized Communication
Current UNCITA (or now just CITA) intelligence has pointed to the establishment of three "Hellmouth" type space-time tears: Hellmouth Abel, the Cathay Hellmouth, and the Sheban Hellmouth. The apparitions emerging from these "war portals" will be exceedingly numerous. Their capabilities are broadly unknown, and their intentions are decipherable only on a surface level. It is suspected more Hellmouths will open as time proceeds. CITA is attempting to develop any and all solutions it can, but paramount among those is the preservation of the Commission.
Humanity shall not be snuffed out. Today, we reverse the Eschaton.

FAQ

Q: How does this work exactly?
A: This is like a normal war, except one side has some weird magic-y shit. How do you get magic-y shit? By capturing their dudes/equipment/ideas and reverse engineering them and combining them with your tech to create new weaponry and strategies to fight this new threat. Ping me on efforts to do this kind of reverse engineering and I will express the results of that research.
Q: Will the magic thing I did have any effect on this?
A: With very few exceptions, no. Some things were incorporated as build up for this.
Q: Is this the season ending?
A: idk probably.
Q: Is this kind of event going to be the norm for seasons going forwards?
A: Probably. I messed up with this one and delayed things too much. Practice makes perfect I guess.
Q: Did IIIII inspire part of this?
A: No, it was genuinely an accident if anything in these posts matched up to shit you were doing. It's also a coincidence if this matches up with something you expressed on the discord.
Q: What's the deal with the camille bit?
A: Roy helped. Thanks Roy.
Q: I do not like this.
A: Then I'd just leave tbh, I sort of just do things I want to do regardless of how it impacts the game.

2018.01.17 02:19 dndspeak [Lets Build Again] Character Backgrounds

Welcome to the 26th [Lets Build!]
TOPIC: Character Backgrounds
Let's get a second pair of eyes on this one!
Die Roll Result
1 You served as a squire to the younger son of a local lord, a minor political figure. Two years ago he moved to the city, to study magic and indulge in debauchery, and released you from your service (and your salary). You've heard that Bordertown has uses for someone with skill of arms, and so you've hopped onto the first coach available.
2 You've always wanted to be an adventurer. You sat on your pappy's lap as he told and retold the tales of your uncle Algar Spiderspear, and your great uncle Kenway Fireheart, and your great great aunt Thea Earthforger. You didn't understand that those were meant to be cautionary tales, and that there's a reason you don't have any cousins.
3 You never really liked the family dye business. As the first born you were always expected to take over. After lamenting one night drunkenly at the tavern you met a gnome who promised to help. On returning home your family did not recognize you and your younger sibling was set to inherit. They drove you off their land to homelessness. You never saw the gnome again.
4 You were a normal farmer, nothing special about you. Over the years, your farm started losing money and you had to let more and more of your staff go until it was just you left. One day when you are at the local inn drinking your problems away and adventurer walks through and buy the entire inn several rounds of drinks from his large sack of golden coins. Since that day you have sold your farm and used the money to buy some basic adventuring supplies and head out to build your fortune.
5 You were a squire for the local knight and Lord of your province. One day while cleaning his library you come across and gold handle behind some dusty books. As you turned the handle it felt as if your brain was opening like a door. When you turned the handle back a a dusty grimore fell into your hands and you heard a voice inside your head, you decided to name the voice Greg.
6 You grew up as a milk maid, over the course of your child hood you realised that you had a special connection with all animals and nature. One day on your way back from town bandits jumped out from the side of the road and attacked you. Startled, you this your hands out towards them and magic shot out from your finger tips. The next day you packed your things and headed out to learn more about what you had just done and how to control it.
7 Your father was a miner, your mother and innkeeper, you spent your childhood poking the ashes in the fireplace waiting for something to happen. One day a halfling fell down your chimney and talk you into hiding him in your room, his only name that he gave you was Miro, but he taught you many thing over a few nights, once he felt "it" had blown over he packed his things and invited you to join him. He trained you to be a master thief and became almost a second father to you over the course of 2 years. Until one day he set you up, and ran away with the treasure leaving you to rot in the king's jail.
8 You always had anger problems, then again most sailors do, yours were a bit different though. One day you were fishing off the side of your ship when you caught something very heavy on your line. When you finally reeled it in you found a gold ring, but the gold was almost blood red, and in you hand it felt like it had almost no weight. Your crew members wanted to see the ring, but they only saw it as normal gold, you saw it for something much more incredible. When they tried to take it from you you flew into a rage beating them senseless until you jumped into a rowboat and made your way back to shore. You know that they will probably come after you, but none of that matters, you know that you must go to the mountains. You just don't know where or what a mountain is.
9 You grew up on a small farm. Your family was poor, but you managed. You idolized your older brother as a child, even though he wasn’t always nice to you in return. Then one day your brother was conscripted into the army, and you haven’t heard from him since - none of the money he promised to send home, not even a letter. You have finally come of age yourself and set out to find him, or at least find out what happened to him.
10 When you were a teenager, you stopped by a fortune teller’s stall at a festival, just out of idle curiosity. The fortune teller performed her rites and examined you, and promptly burst out laughing. She refunded your money and refused to tell you what she had seen. All she told you was, “Good luck!”
11 You were a middle-aged craftsman/woman with a successful business, several children, and a happy life. One day you came home to discover your spouse was cheating on you. Newly divorced, you had a bit of a mid-life crisis and spent all of your savings on a [book of magic/set of shiny armofencing lessons/musical instrument/etc]. Gosh darn it, you want to have an adventure!
12 Your parents are scholars, historians specifically, and you've been raised on countless trips to archaeological digs, libraries, and lectures with them. You may or may not have taken to the studies as much as they'd like, but when the restless need to spread your wings and get away from home took hold, they were excited to request that you document all the things you discover on your adventures and bring them home to share.
13 You were the oldest child of a prosperous peasant. You had a life of beer, bread and barn dances to look forward to. Then, you went into the big town on a religious pilgrimage, and were knocked out and press-ganged into the army. Turns out, you loved it and never looked back. Your dad had other kids. Too bad the Goblin Wars are over now and your lord disbanded his army.
14 You were a slave, on a big estate. One day, a charismatic leader got the slaves to rise in rebellion. You're pretty sure there are others who didn't end up crucified, but you've never met any of them. Here in the city, nobody has any idea the rebellion even happened.
15 You were a village priest. Births, deaths, rites of passage. Holy cow, was it boring. You renounced your vows and moved on. You've never suffered from this: the gods have never wrought revenge upon you. You get the feeling they don't care, or they're not there. Some of the things you learned (healing, counseling) have proved pretty useful.
16 You were a wealthy playboy, the son of a rich merchant. He got murdered; you lost what was left gambling. Turns out you're pretty good in a fight. You still have expensive tastes.
17 You were trained as a courtesan. You got blamed for breaking up a marriage among nobles. Some of them still like you; others want you dead. Sometimes, it's hard to tell.
18 You were conscripted to join the army, but it was a sham. You and a couple others were lured into an ambush by bandits. Though outnumbered, your group managed to fend them off. Unfortunately, only you survived the ordeal and managed to escape before the bandits got any more reinforcements, though not without taking a valuable item the bandits were after. Now you're on the run hoping to lure the bandits away from home.
19 You are transported to another plane of existence where everything and everyone from your past life has occurred just the same, except you. In this plane you died early in life/never been born/had rose as a crime lord that went missing as his reign fell/whatever else you can up with.
20 Your family has been guarding an ancient artifact for generations that has been said to hold immense power. It is stolen under your watch but you track it down JUST as it is about to be used for evil. It's a dud. Now you journey around to find the real artifact that your family should've been guarding/ find the reason why they've been given such a fool's errand to follow for so long.
21 A warlock finds out they're not the only user of their patron's magic. Others share the same pact they made with it and now the patron desires them all to find each other and fight to the death. The winner shall be granted the true power the patron split between them/wish/ immortality/ whatever else.
22 Your mother carried your little body through the woods, with her dying breath she brought you to the wise man of the forest and collapsed as soon as she told him your name. He raised you in her stead until he died of ...
23 Despite being cheerful and righteous, you can't remember anything before you're 25th birthday. Every time you kill something evil, you get a small memory back. Every quest returns to you a piece of your former self...and the more you see, the more you suspect you were not a good person.
24 On a mission to buy some new clothes you were mistaken for an adventurer who had already orders some. You were thus outfitted and always one to role with with what life throws at you decided to run with it. Somewhere there is an underdressed adventurer looking for her clothes and wondering who stole her identity.
25 Your parents always said that reading would be the death of you. Despite this you taught yourself how to read behind their back. You then discovered the will and testament of your real parents and realize you are being raised by your uncle who controls all the family wealth. Fearful for your life and feeling betrayed you abandon the household to make your own name and find out what really happened to your parents. Your uncle may or may not know that you know about the deception.
26 Once, you belonged into a wealthy and noble family, who unofficially ruled the city, due to your wealth and power. You were enjoying your time in the sun and were proud of your family name, until you discovered your father is a vampire, who works with evil necromancers and together turn civilians into monsters. Conflicted on your hatred, feelings of betrayal, sense of duty and love for your house, you grabbed your dearest friends and hit the road, forsaking your family name and keeping the secrets of your family hidden.
27 You were raised by travelling merchants, going with them wherever they went. As you got older, they started teaching you the ways of the trade, and you planned to travel and trade with them your whole life. One day, your caravan was attacked by bandits, who killed everyone, and would have killed you, if you didn't get away. Since then, you abandoned your dream, and have been making a living out of adventures.
28 You were trained by a master of your skill, like many others, in an appropriate organisation. One day, they set each of the students on a quest for retrieving a mythical item. The thing your character was supposed to find though, was simply a myth. When you told the master the story, they didn't believe you, and expelled you from the order.
29 Your parents were retired adventurers, who told you their epic tales, and probably expected you to follow their steps. When you reached adulthood, you set out to do even more epic deeds than them, despite having no training at all.
30 The first thing your remember is being rescued from rubble by a good-hearted noble, who then patched you up and offered his help in trying to find who you are. The only clue you have are your class abilities (which are like muscle memory to you), and the knowledge of whatever the collapsed building was.
31 You grew up as a normal city kid, and never really did anything interesting with your life. You had a decent job and was going to get married soon, until the day you got lost in the wilderness. That was years ago, and you have never been able to find your way back to your hometown, because nobody seems to know about it.
32 You grew up with nothing, cheating and stealing where you could. All you’ve ever earned was a target on your back and bad reputation. Eventually you found yourself on the run from the wrong kind of people. In a tavern you met a wizard that promised a way out. With nowhere else to turn, you reluctantly agreed. The wizard took you to his study and performed a ritual to switch your face with the face of another person of similar build. Now you go off into the world with a new identity and a chance to start over. Or so you thought... (The face you wear has it's history too).
33 You are the child of a single woman taken in by a traveling caravan of performers while pregnant. She never described your father to you, and she changes the subject when you ask. Those in the caravan are your substitute family. You have several "grandparents," "aunts," "uncles," and "cousins." You took part in the caravan's entertainment for coin, whether as a performer or someone behind the scenes. When you felt the need, you left the caravan of your own free will to pursue your journey. You were given a special crest with the performers' symbol so you would be welcomed back if you returned.
34 You are an experiment, either made or modified for a reason you cant even remember. with so many genetic changes and magical 'enhancements' that you cant even count the amount of places where they're from. A lab rat from a man who seemed to want to do good, and claims to try to have done so but never told what he was doing specifically, never said what his end goal was and just kept going, and going and going. The doctor was put to death for his experiments. Whatever purpose you had been made for is now lost to you, as is just about everything you used to know. You don't know who you were, assuming you were anything other than this.
35 You fell into life threatening trouble one day exploring some ruins close to town. There you found a strange altar with and old woman sitting behind it. She said she could help you escape, if you promise to serve her. You're pretty sure she's a god, but she won't tell you her name, or what she's the god of. She shows up sometimes and points, and whatever she points at you must somehow acquire and leave behind in certain ruins. Her tastes are getting kind of extravagant.
36 You were once the son of a wealthy merchant who traveled more than average compared to other merchants at the time. Your father would often take you and your younger sister on some of his shorter journeys, exposing you to a dangers of sailing across the seas. On one advantage your father's ship was attacked by pirates killing everyone on board. Because of the tragic death of your father you desire revenge, and will do anything to kill them.
37 Your an anti-social person who lives a quiet life in a rural part of the kingdom. In your quiet life you discovered a interest in ancient artifacts left over from the last civilization. Known most of your down time is sent studying these artifacts through reading ancient texts, and practicing your magic.
38 You sold vegetables from a street cart you were still making payments on. A wild street chase broke out and one of the escapees upended your cart to delay some guards, shattering it badly. Reeling from the financial loss of your vegetables and blocked from setting up another shop by overzealous debt-collector harassment, you left town with all you had hoping to put your life back together.
39 You were once a wicked individual who took pleasure in the misery of others. You were then struck by powerful cursed magic that turned your entire outlook on life around, so that you now are a force for good who brings happiness to others. Your dark past still haunts you, and sometimes your old friends try to call you back.
40 You were a simple bed-and-breakfast inn owner. One of your guests left for a night of carousing and never returned. Among their left-behind possessions was an ornate locked box with no key. Hoping to find the owner or their organization, you took the box to a local bush-wizard to get it identified. While you were away, your inn was ransacked and burned to the ground. Word got around you had the box and you were being hunted, so you fled in terror.
41 When you were young, you found a diary that would message back to you if you wrote in it. It taught you many mysterious skills and spells. One day, the diary told you that it couldn't write to you anymore, and it went silent. You set off when you got older to explore some of the places the diary mentioned and uncover the identity of your mysterious penpal.
42 When you were young, you were polymorphed into a flying horse by a malfunctioning spell. Some explorers promised to help you, and you taken on many harrowing adventures. The help never came, as the explorers preferred a flying horse. Decades pass, you were lost and sold many times. Eventually a kindly witch made you whole again, picking up human life at the age you were changed. (Can substitute for flying carpet if you aren't a horse person.)
43 A lonely child found a ring of wishing. They wished for their imaginary friend, you, to become real. The child soon became sick and died, and their parents blamed you and ran you out of town. Using the powers that the child imagined you to have, you have begun to search for a purpose.
44 You were born dumb to a wealthy family with an estate. Ashamed and not knowing what else to do with you, your family used you as a slave, setting you to all the most awful and menial tasks. Not knowing any better, you became strong with a smile. One evening, you showed kindness to an old woman who turned out to be a fairy queen in disguise. She blessed you with intelligence. Disgusted with the way you were treated, you left home, hoping to learn to read, study, and start life anew.
45 After your town was razed and everyone you knew died, you woke up in the middle of the ashes. Something, for some reason, kept you alive, and a life of adventure might give you the opportunity to find out what and why.
46 The bandits thought they left nothing of value in your village, and maybe they were right because that night you lost your arm and way of life.
47 You grew up as the region's stereotype, a poor farmer with a passion for whittling. After inheriting the farm prospectors found gold in the river and you sold the farm for more money than you thought was in circulation. Unsure of how to spend money and unwilling to save it, you purchased an abandoned adventurer's guild with plans to turn it into a wooden toy shop before finding it not quite as abandoned as you thought.
48 You are a farmer who found a talking rock which only you could hear, in the middle of your own farm. Everyone thinks you lost your mind, which eventually leads to an unwanted embargo, and you go bankrupt.
49 You lead a relatively normal life as a tailor in a small town until your infant daughter started showing signs of sorcerous abilities and was stolen in the night.
50 You were the student of the greatest bard in the land, until you murdered him.
51 You were trapped in a cloud giant's castle for years living of of giant crumbs. Only recently were you able to escape.
52 You were an orphan taken in by the local butcher. You were a loner bug dilligent and you loved your adoptive father. One day the village is attacked by bandits, who kill your adoptive father. You get your revenge on the bandits but the brutality of your vengeance alienates you even more to the rest of the village.
53 You grew up watching the pit fighters in the capital city, marveling at their strength and ability. You spent years training on your own in both armed and hand fighting, with the ultimate goal of entering the pit and becoming a legend in your own right. As you are about to enter for your first match, your opponent and the announcer come over to lay out the match, revealing all of the fights are pre-determined and set up so no one is really injured. You walked away and now are trying to find your place in the world.
54 For your entire life up to now you have watched others perform magic, they were few, but fantastical and filled your heart with wonder. Practice and study as you may, you were never able to recreate even simple cantrips that the local wizard has tried to teach you. Distraught, you ran to the woods to a secret clearing to cry for a bit. That day something incredible happens, magic shot from you fingertips, and shortly after a man in a suit and tie walk up from the edge of the clearing and sets his briefcase down on a large flat rock that you had never seen sitting there before. “It seems we have some paperwork to go over,” he said with a smile.
55 You met and joined a errant knight and his small court that traveled searching for riches and a new home for this lord and his barren town after the war. After years of service and being brought to be loyal to this cause, the knight died in his sleep all the sudden and his attendants looted the caravan and ran off, leaving you to bury your teacher, pack what gear he had and was left behind and pick up the quest of Knighthood to this unknown lord as he was show.
56 Character [C] was a demon hunter on the desert planet Derach. C fought alongside their small battalion and this group was revered for their efficiency and kept to themselves. One day a strange rift opened and pulled the group apart banishing each of the soldiers to different corners of the universe. C’s only goal once reaching a strange green planet was to find a way to portal back to the demon’s world and find their companions. Unfortunately C was captured by the planets inhabitants and forced into slavery.
57 You only remember the last 5-10 years of your live. Before that it is all blank. Your parents/caretakers/close ones tell you that you had a terrible accident and lost all memory after the accident. But then you find written agreements of your adoption, detailing that you were selected for an experimental form of adoption. This meant that your memory was wiped and your biological parents wiped out. You have been engineered by wizards/scientists to be the perfect human. You then find a note that the amnesia can be reversed if [plot hook] is done. A warning is written in big letters that reversing the amnesia spell might have unforeseen effects.
58 You spent most of your childhood and early adulthood as a farmer, the difficulty of your daily work offset by the amazing times you've had with friends and family. One day, you hit your head on a rock. When you next awoke, you were in leather armor, on a sailing ship as part of an adventuring party. An entire life of adventure, riches, and excitement unfolded, and as you lay down for the last time, surrounded by your allies and loved ones, you woke back up with a pain in your temple, 3 seconds after hitting your head. You can't feel comfortable any more as a farmhand, you need a blade in your hand and a bag of loot at your side.
59 You're a wandering conman, appearing trustworthy as you bend others around your finger, making yourself invaluable to them with the hard work and amazing success you provide. Every time you leave to fulfill your life's dream of finding a perfect spouse, you leave behind a trail of heartbreak, impossible upkeep, and new businesses doomed to fail.
60 You'd probably say that you're about 605-615 now. The years go by in an instant. When you were young you devoted your life to meditation. Recently, you were visited by a boy, who you began to talk with, and would do anything for. He lived, trained with you, and eventually succumbed to age. You, now unquestionably ancient, you have no clue how to interact socially or succeed in anything else, but you want to see what world the boy left behind for you.
61 You've spent your entire life underground, in the same building. Every day, a music box played you a lesson. You learned languages, numbers, history, how to act properly in society, how to assassinate the high king. Now, the doors finally open and you see the outside for the first time. It's time to use all that you've learned.
62 You've always been able to talk to the trees. They tell you interesting things. How they are, what they feel, how those who pass through and around them respect or disrespect them. Recently, the trees have been quieter and quieter. You need to find out why, for their sake... and yours.
63 You were drunk. Your low marks in Thermo meant you wouldn't be on the dean's roll this semester. Your parents were going to lynch you. You spend the night weeping, stumbling into a dark part of campus you didn't recognize. You made a deal. You thought they were going to intimidate your professor for you. You woke up in a hay bale, with no phone poles in sight. You get a strange feeling that you won't be graduating this year.
64 You were an orphan. Your parents died in a plague that went through when you were small and, to care for you, the town council apprenticed you to the local gravedigger. For years you served, learning the ins and outs of the physical and spiritual side of dealing with death. You learned about your god, the patron of death, from the gravedigger, but his worship always seemed a bit hollow, a little too rote. One night you picked up the sacred text he kept on the small shrine in your shared chambers and read it. You became shocked and dismayed at the disparity between the soft platitudes your guardian parrots and the dire truths uncovered in your god's scriptures. That night the gravedigger, his home, your entire life burned to the ground as you set off to become the god of death's most faithful servant ever.
65 Born to caravan guards, as a child you traveled with merchants and learned to sort goods, haggle, fix wagons, spot danger, and cook meals on the road. You met all sorts of interesting people who paid to be guarded by a convoy. Now that you have come of age, you want to explore some of places you heard about.
66 You are the 11th child of 14 siblings. Instead of hanging around your cramped home, you spent your waking hours in a nearby library, learning, sorting books, and doing sums for others for small fee you brought home to your parents. You have come of age and hope to write a book one day that will sell tens of thousands of copies.
67 You were raised in a dragon's den. One of your parents was a dragon's favorite and the dragon allowed your family to take up residence in his/her home. They, and you once you were old enough, provided services such as greeting guests, expelling uninvited intruders, maintaining inventory, cleaning, and cooking fine meals. You have fond memories of playing in a piles of gold, stirring a 2000 gallon stew pot, donning magic clothing and weapons, leafing through esoteric books of powerful magic to look at the pictures, and attempting to outwit your draconic landlord with whatever puzzles and games you could think of. You left on good terms at the same time the dragon's youngling left to establish its own territory, and you hope to carve out a bit of the world for yourself as well.
68 You were raised in an abandoned necromancer's lab by intelligent skeletons and various other undead. You ran a lot of errands, being tolerant of sunlight and unlikely to send the whole town fleeing for the hills. Your main mentor was a flamboyant skeleton with a hat of disguise and a penchant for long-winded but thrilling tales of ages past. Armed with ancient weapons, some minor alchemy materials, the lost necromancer's notes, and the skills your undead family taught you, you now walk the earth. You are quite open-minded about creatures of the dark and undeath, but having seen the goodness they are capable of, you are intolerant of undead who would exist at the expense of others and visit cruelty on the living.
69 You were born into a clan that viewed those born with magical power as evil. During your coming of age ceremony your powers awakened and you found yourself surrounded in arcane power. Fearful of you, the clan leader cast you out. Now you roam as an exile from your clan trying to understand your powers.
70 Your birth was a summoning deep in the forest, and you recall the face of your first parental figure was sheer disappointment. Summoned as a readymade adult, your memory of childhood is non-existent, and less helpful, your summoner teleported away the moment you arrived nude on the mossy floor.
71 You don't remember your father at all, but your mother says that they were the most handsome and talented bard in all the land. Each day you wonder what adventures he must be on, as your village has nothing for you but chickens to pluck and hogs to hang. With nothing but pitchfork and hoe in hand you set out, determined to find your father, or at least bring back a story for the folks back home.
72 Your father was a blacksmith, but he's not truly your father. Your mother cheated on him years ago and he knows it. Whether it's true or not you'll never know. He hates you for it nonetheless. He did the bare minimum a father needed to do until you were old enough then kicked you out despite your mother's plea's. You stole the greataxe(or preferred weapon) he was withholding until the customer paid and left your old life behind.
73 You were orphaned at the church of (insert God of Strength, War, Valor here) where you were raised from a young age to become a fierce warrior for your God.
74 When you were young, you had a thing for fire. It was pretty, destructive, and alluring. One night as your family slept you were playing with it and accidentally set the family home ablaze. Your mother awoke to the inferno and using every once of power she had saved you from the blaze before succumbing and burning up right in front of your eyes. It was the most beautiful thing you ever saw, and if only the world understood, then maybe they wouldn't be so afraid of fire.
75 Mistress tells you that you used to be a great Paladin. A sworn warrior of good, bringing justice and light to a terrible land. Then you came to her and Mistress may be the strongest enchantress there is, maybe stronger. Now you are Mistress's defender, a (insert Warforged, Golem here).
76 You are ... were a member of the city watch. Now, you suppose that you've likely lost that position. Just like your father, you were signed up and joined their ranks at quite a young age. You were far too low of a rank to call your job fulfilling or exciting, but you didn't really mind it all that much. After work you'd spend about half a day's pay drowning your boredom in booze. You've always had a love for a good brew, but you never thought it much of a problem. Until recently. It seems one night you decided to go on a week long binge. What few memories you have are too fuzzy and disorienting to make any sense of. How you're alive, you don't know. During your blackout, you seem to have somehow made it to somewhere you don't even recognize. You're wearing equipment you don't remember acquiring. You accidentally set off a cantrip, despite the fact you've never even seen magic at work, let alone use it. Some guy just told you that you asked him to get you up so you could go meet with someone about a new job. You decide that you need to figure out what happened and that maybe you really do have a drinking problem.
77 You grew up alone in a rather large and well kept house, no parents that you can remember, or relatives you visited, but food would always appear out of nowhere in the pantry, as did gold in the sofa and water in the well. One day, you woke up on the ground, the house having completely disappeared from existence. In its place, a note remained, reading "Stay Strong!" Of course, you began adventuring from there.
78 You narrowly escaped your home city after a nasty plague was set upon it. The man who helped you escape was a high nobleman, and you later heard that he was culled along with much of the city. That city was your home, you loved it, and now it is all but gone.
79 You were a member of minor nobility that got wiped out by a conspiracy, so you fled to a monastery. But then you got kicked out for tricky one of the priest(ess)es into breaking their vows of chastity.
80 You were part of a desert caravan that ran out of water. But a vision appeared leading to an unknown oasis ... and commanding you to go to the city of (Plot starts here).
81 You were raised by a lovely mother and a father that turned out to be a true polymorphic gorilla. As a result, some of your beliefs and habits are a bit ape-ish.
82 You were born in a tribe of nomadic people. In your young age you and your parents got captured in a raid and sold as slaves. Your family got lucky because you have been sold to a noble. His castle was in a cold region with hard winters. He was a brutal leader but fair to everybody who did as he told. You learned the etiquette of the royal court and got along very well. As you became an adult he gave you to another lord to become a soldier. Their kingdom was at war. On the way to your new owner your caravan got raided by their enemy. You somehow escaped. A few days later you found out that your former lord has been attacked and everyone including your parents were murdered. You left the kingdom and never came back till today.
83 Born an orphan, you were adopted by a wealthy family at a young age to be raised as help. (How the family treated you growing up is up to the player.) Shortly after your 18th birthday the entire estate is burned to the ground and you are the only known survivor. You are suspect and wanted by the local, kingdom for questioning and crimes against the family. Can you clear your name before the kingdom picks you up, are you to blame for the fire, or are you innocent and wrongly accused? Will you be able to find the villain in time?
84 A retired member of the army, you have been jaded by war, seen far more than any one person aught to see in a hundred life times. After settling down and manning an inn for some years, you've gotten the itch for adventure, and now ready to strike out on your own and see the good in the world.
85 Given up as sacrifice at a young age by a small village to insure their harvest, you were picked up by a band of traveling performers. Growing up with them you traveled the country side. Upon reaching adulthood, your adopted parents told you the truth of where you came from. Do you venture off for revenge? Do you forgive and forget?
86 Sold into slavery at young age, you where set free by traveling adventures early in your teen years. Since then you have always dreamed of becoming one yourself. Not wanting to waste away your life tending to home and hearth you've set out for the call of the wild.
87 Daughter of a diplomat, you traveled the world's capitals with your father. You grew bored of the stuffy and bureaucratic business and roamed the foreign streets and markets. It is here you fell in with a dashing rogue who stole your heart and taught you the secrets of his world over one glorious summer. You resolved to embark on a career of your own choosing, not your father's.
88 A radiant portal spit you out. The last words you remember were "Penance". Aasimar know who you are, but won't disclose it even under torture.
89 Raised by pirates you raided the wrong temple and you were the sole surviver.
90 Raised by ogres they always threatened to eat you growing up. You payed them tribute and grew above the goblin ranks. Eventually you made your bid for freedom by poisoning all their dinner. You are a legend amongst the goblins and ogres.
91 You had a normal childhood in the city. Schooling, family, friends, playing on the large stone walls...but all that was taken away in an instant when 200 hollow-core Warforged self destructed... leveling the city you once called home. Their master and her apprentice long dead you hunt down the last of their demented toys to honor your loss and make the burn marks on your back hurt a little less.
92 Taken in by a pack of traveling werewolves you were given a silver necklace and acted as their cover. You outed them in a city and you were finally liberated. Their daughter still hunts you... waiting to find you alone.
93 As an orphan you were taken in by a sweet, old, good-natured necromancer. You fetched goods from the nearby city, helped dig up parts, played with his creations... You left on good terms and you have no fear of the undead.
94 Your heart opens a portal to the Nine Hells... according to the prophecy.
95 Your family is known amongst all Dragonborn...and loved for your ancestors deeds. Which was promised in blood oath to never be disclosed to you.
96 You grew up seeing visions of battle in your dreams. Horrible, cruel visions of a war far away. You share a soul with a Warforged on another continent...and you are seeking each other out.
97 You were raised by giant eagles. You learned to flush out prey and perform menial tasks in service to your sky lords. Eventually you got too heavy to carry and they all abandoned you...all except your rookmate Kyla. She was the runt, left to die, and always keeps an eye out for you.
98 Raised by dwarves in a mountain hold it's no wonder you have such a surly disposition. You know the runes for entry into most dwarf fortresses and can drink ale with the best of them. Switch this background to "Halfling" and "farm" if PC is a dwarf.
99 Raised in a lighthouse on a lone island you would danger the rocks to salvage whatever you could from the unfortunate ships scuttled on the rocks. This made you a strong swimmer. Be it pirate or merchant your family name is well known and appreciated for the work they do.
100 You were forced to murder your family when they became vampires. The town didn't believe you and now you are on the run. Rumor is one of your family survived your gruesome attack...

Welcome to the 26th [Lets Build!]
TOPIC: Character Backgrounds
Die Roll Result
1 You served as a squire to the younger son of a local lord, a minor political figure. Two years ago he moved to the city, to study magic and indulge in debauchery, and released you from your service (and your salary). You've heard that Bordertown has uses for someone with skill of arms, and so you've hopped onto the first coach available.
2 You've always wanted to be an adventurer. You sat on your pappy's lap as he told and retold the tales of your uncle Algar Spiderspear, and your great uncle Kenway Fireheart, and your great great aunt Thea Earthforger. You didn't understand that those were meant to be cautionary tales, and that there's a reason you don't have any cousins.
3 You never really liked the family dye business. As the first born you we're always expected to take over. After lamenting one night drunkenly at the tavern you met a gnome who promised to help. On returning home your family did not recognize you and your younger sibling was set to inherit. They drove you off their land to homelessness. You never saw the gnome again.
4 You were a normal farmer, nothing special about you. Over the years, your farm started losing money and you had to let more and more of your staff go until it was just you left. One day when you are at the local inn drinking your problems away and adventurer walks through and buy the entire inn several rounds of drinks from his large sack of golden coins. Since that day you have sold your farm and used the money to buy some basic adventuring supplies and head out to build your fortune.
5 You were a squire for the local knight and Lord of your province. One day while cleaning his library you come across and gold handle behind some dusty books. As you turned the handle it felt as if your brain was opening like a door. When you turned the handle back a a dusty grimore fell into your hands and you heard a voice inside your head, you decided to name the voice Greg.
6 You grew up as a milk maid, over the course of your child hood you realised that you had a special connection with all animals and nature. One day on your way back from town bandits jumped out from the side of the road and attacked you. Startled, you this your hands out towards them and magic shot out from your finger tips. The next day you packed your things and headed out to learn more about what you had just done and how to control it.
7 Your father was a miner, your mother and innkeeper, you spent your childhood poking the ashes in the fireplace waiting for something to happen. One day a halfling fell down your chimney and talk you into hiding him in your room, his only name that he gave you was Miro, but he taught you many thing over a few nights, once he felt "it" had blown over he packed his things and invited you to join him. He trained you to be a master thief and became almost a second father to you over the course of 2 years. Until one day he set you up, and ran away with the treasure leaving you to rot in the king's jail.
8 You always had anger problems, then again most sailors do, yours were a bit different though. One day you were fishing off the side of your ship when you caught something very heavy on your line. When you finally reeled it in you found a gold ring, but the gold was almost blood red, and in you hand it felt like it had almost no weight. Your crew members wanted to see the ring, but they only saw it as normal gold, you saw it for something much more incredible. When they tried to take it from you you flew into a rage beating them senseless until you jumped into a rowboat and made your way back to shore. You know that they will probably come after you, but none of that matters, you know that you must go to the mountains. You just don't know where or what a mountain is.
9 You grew up on a small farm. Your family was poor, but you managed. You idolized your older brother as a child, even though he wasn’t always nice to you in return. Then one day your brother was conscripted into the army, and you haven’t heard from him since - none of the money he promised to send home, not even a letter. You have finally come of age yourself and set out to find him, or at least find out what happened to him.
10 When you were a teenager, you stopped by a fortune teller’s stall at a festival, just out of idle curiosity. The fortune teller performed her rites and examined you, and promptly burst out laughing. She refunded your money and refused to tell you what she had seen. All she told you was, “Good luck!”
11 You were a middle-aged craftsman/woman with a successful business, several children, and a happy life. One day you came home to discover your spouse was cheating on you. Newly divorced, you had a bit of a mid-life crisis and spent all of your savings on a [book of magic/set of shiny armofencing lessons/musical instrument/etc]. Gosh darn it, you want to have an adventure!
12 Your parents are scholars, historians specifically, and you've been raised on countless trips to archaeological digs, libraries, and lectures with them. You may or may not have taken to the studies as much as they'd like, but when the restless need to spread your wings and get away from home took hold, they were excited to request that you document all the things you discover on your adventures and bring them home to share.
13 You were the oldest child of a prosperous peasant. You had a life of beer, bread and barn dances to look forward to. Then, you went into the big town on a religious pilgrimage, and were knocked out and press-ganged into the army. Turns out, you loved it and never looked back. Your dad had other kids. Too bad the Goblin Wars are over now and your lord disbanded his army.
14 You were a slave, on a big estate. One day, a charismatic leader got the slaves to rise in rebellion. You're pretty sure there are others who didn't end up crucified, but you've never met any of them. Here in the city, nobody has any idea the rebellion even happened.
15 You were a village priest. Births, deaths, rites of passage. Holy cow, was it boring. You renounced your vows and moved on. You've never suffered from this: the gods have never wrought revenge upon you. You get the feeling they don't care, or they're not there. Some of the things you learned (healing, counseling) have proved pretty useful.
16 You were a wealthy playboy, the son of a rich merchant. He got murdered; you lost what was left gambling. Turns out you're pretty good in a fight. You still have expensive tastes.
17 You were trained as a courtesan. You got blamed for breaking up a marriage among nobles. Some of them still like you; others want you dead. Sometimes, it's hard to tell.
18 You were conscripted to join the army, but it was a sham. You and a couple others were lured into an ambush by bandits. Though outnumbered, your group managed to fend them off. Unfortunately, only you survived the ordeal and managed to escape before the bandits got any more reinforcements, though not without taking a valuable item the bandits were after. Now you're on the run hoping to lure the bandits away from home.
19 You are transported to another plane of existence where everything and everyone from your past life has occurred just the same, except you. In this plane you died early in life/never been born/had rose as a crime lord that went missing as his reign fell/whatever else you can up with.
20 Your family has been guarding an ancient artifact for generations that has been said to hold immense power. It is stolen under your watch but you track it down JUST as it is about to be used for evil. It's a dud. Now you journey around to find the real artifact that your family should've been guarding/ find the reason why they've been given such a fool's errand to follow for so long.
21 A warlock finds out they're not the only user of their patron's magic. Others share the same pact they made with it and now the patron desires them all to find each other and fight to the death. The winner shall be granted the true power the patron split between them/wish/ immortality/ whatever else.
22 Your mother carried your little body through the woods, with her dying breath she brought you to the wise man of the forest and collapsed as soon as she told him your name. He raised you in her stead until he died of ...
23 Despite being cheerful and righteous, you can't remember anything before you're 25th birthday. Every time you kill something evil, you get a small memory back. Every quest returns to you a piece of your former self...and the more you see, the more you suspect you were not a good person.
24 On a mission to buy some new clothes you were mistaken for an adventurer who had already orders some. You were thus outfitted and always one to role with with what life throws at you decided to run with it. Somewhere there is an underdressed adventurer looking for her clothes and wondering who stole her identity.
25 Your parents always said that reading would be the death of you. Despite this you taught yourself how to read behind their back. You then discovered the will and testament of your real parents and realize you are being raised by your uncle who controls all the family wealth. Fearful for your life and feeling betrayed you abandon the household to make your own name and find out what really happened to your parents. Your uncle may or may not know that you know about the deception.
26 Once, you belonged into a wealthy and noble family, who unofficially ruled the city, due to your wealth and power. You were enjoying your time in the sun and were proud of your family name, until you discovered your father is a vampire, who works with evil necromancers and together turn civilians into monsters. Conflicted on your hatred, feelings of betrayal, sense of duty and love for your house, you grabbed your dearest friends and hit the road, forsaking your family name and keeping the secrets of your family hidden.
27 You were raised by travelling merchants, going with them wherever they went. As you got older, they started teaching you the ways of the trade, and you planned to travel and trade with them your whole life. One day, your caravan was attacked by bandits, who killed everyone, and would have killed you, if you didn't get away. Since then, you abandoned your dream, and have been making a living out of adventures.
28 You were trained by a master of your skill, like many others, in an appropriate organisation. One day, they set each of the students on a quest for retrieving a mythical item. The thing your character was supposed to find though, was simply a myth. When you told the master the story, they didn't believe you, and expelled you from the order.
29 Your parents were retired adventurers, who told you their epic tales, and probably expected you to follow their steps. When you reached adulthood, you set out to do even more epic deeds than them, despite having no training at all.
30 The first thing your remember is being rescued from rubble by a good-hearted noble, who then patched you up and offered his help in trying to find who you are. The only clue you have are your class abilities (which are like muscle memory to you), and the knowledge of whatever the collapsed building was.
31 You grew up as a normal city kid, and never really did anything interesting with your life. You had a decent job and was going to get married soon, until the day you got lost in the wilderness. That was years ago, and you have never been able to find your way back to your hometown, because nobody seems to know about it.
32 You grew up with nothing, cheating and stealing where you could. All you’ve ever earned was a target on your back and bad reputation. Eventually you found yourself on the run from the wrong kind of people. In a tavern you met a wizard that promised a way out. With nowhere else to turn, you reluctantly agreed. The wizard took you to his study and performed a ritual to switch your face with the face of another person of similar build. Now you go off into the world with a new identity and a chance to start over. Or so you thought... (The face you wear has it's history too).
33 You are the child of a single woman taken in by a traveling caravan of performers while pregnant. She never described your father to you, and she changes the subject when you ask.
34 Those in the caravan are your substitute family. You have several "grandparents," "aunts," "uncles," and "cousins." You took part in the caravan's entertainment for coin, whether as a performer or someone behind the scenes.
35 When you felt the need, you left the caravan of your own free will to pursue your journey. You were given a special crest with the performers' symbol so you would be welcomed back if you returned.
36 You were once the son of a wealthy merchant who traveled more than average compared to other merchants at the time. Your father would often take you and your younger sister on some of his shorter journeys, exposing you to a dangers of sailing across the seas. On one advantage your father's ship was attacked by pirates killing everyone on board. Because of the tragic death of your father you desire revenge, and will do anything to kill them.
37 Your an anti-social person who lives a quiet life in a rural part of the kingdom. In your quiet life you discovered a interest in ancient artifacts left over from the last civilization. Known most of your down time is sent studying these artifacts through reading ancient texts, and practicing your magic.
38 You sold vegetables from a street cart you were still making payments on. A wild street chase broke out and one of the escapees upended your cart to delay some guards, shattering it badly. Reeling from the financial loss of your vegetables and blocked from setting up another shop by overzealous debt-collector harassment, you left town with all you had hoping to put your life back together.
39 You were once a wicked individual who took pleasure in the misery of others. You were then struck by powerful cursed magic that turned your entire outlook on life around, so that you now are a force for good who brings happiness to others. Your dark past still haunts you, and sometimes your old friends try to call you back.
40 You were a simple bed-and-breakfast inn owner. One of your guests left for a night of carousing and never returned. Among their left-behind possessions was an ornate locked box with no key. Hoping to find the owner or their organization, you took the box to a local bush-wizard to get it identified. While you were away, your inn was ransacked and burned to the ground. Word got around you had the box and you were being hunted, so you fled in terror.
41 When you were young, you found a diary that would message back to you if you wrote in it. It taught you many mysterious skills and spells. One day, the diary told you that it couldn't write to you anymore, and it went silent. You set off when you got older to explore some of the places the diary mentioned and uncover the identity of your mysterious penpal.
42 When you were young, you were polymorphed into a flying horse by a malfunctioning spell. Some explorers promised to help you, and you taken on many harrowing adventures. The help never came, as the explorers preferred a flying horse. Decades pass, you were lost and sold many times. Eventually a kindly witch made you whole again, picking up human life at the age you were changed. (Can substitute for flying carpet if you aren't a horse person.)
43 A lonely child found a ring of wishing. They wished for their imaginary friend, you, to become real. The child soon became sick and died, and their parents blamed you and ran you out of town. Using the powers that the child imagined you to have, you have begun to search for a purpose.
44 You were born dumb to a wealthy family with an estate. Ashamed and not knowing what else to do with you, your family used you as a slave, setting you to all the most awful and menial tasks. Not knowing any better, you became strong with a smile. One evening, you showed kindness to an old woman who turned out to be a fairy queen in disguise. She blessed you with intelligence. Disgusted with the way you were treated, you left home, hoping to learn to read, study, and start life anew.
45 After your town was razed and everyone you knew died, you woke up in the middle of the ashes. Something, for some reason, kept you alive, and a life of adventure might give you the opportunity to find out what and why.
46 The bandits thought they left nothing of value in your village, and maybe they were right because that night you lost your arm and way of life.
47 You grew up as the region's stereotype, a poor farmer with a passion for whittling. After inheriting the farm prospectors found gold in the river and you sold the farm for more money than you thought was in circulation. Unsure of how to spend money and unwilling to save it, you purchased an abandoned adventurer's guild with plans to turn it into a wooden toy shop before finding it not quite as abandoned as you thought.
48 You are a farmer who found a talking rock which only you could hear, in the middle of your own farm. Everyone thinks you lost your mind, which eventually leads to an unwanted embargo, and you go bankrupt.
49 You lead a relatively normal life as a tailor in a small town until your infant daughter started showing signs of sorcerous abilities and was stolen in the night.
50 You were the student of the greatest bard in the land, until you murdered him.
51 You were trapped in a cloud giant's castle for years living of of giant crumbs. Only recently were you able to escape.
52 You were an orphan taken in by the local butcher. You were a loner bug dilligent and you loved your adoptive father. One day the village is attacked by bandits, who kill your adoptive father. You get your revenge on the bandits but the brutality of your vengeance alienates you even more to the rest of the village.
53 You grew up watching the pit fighters in the capital city, marveling at their strength and ability. You spent years training on your own in both armed and hand fighting, with the ultimate goal of entering the pit and becoming a legend in your own right. As you are about to enter for your first match, your opponent and the announcer come over to lay out the match, revealing all of the fights are pre-determined and set up so no one is really injured. You walked away and now are trying to find your place in the world.
54 For your entire life up to now you have watched others perform magic, they were few, but fantastical and filled your heart with wonder. Practice and study as you may, you were never able to recreate even simple cantrips that the local wizard has tried to teach you. Distraught, you ran to the woods to a secret clearing to cry for a bit. That day something incredible happens, magic shot from you fingertips, and shortly after a man in a suit and tie walk up from the edge of the clearing and sets his briefcase down on a large flat rock that you had never seen sitting there before. “It seems we have some paperwork to go over,” he said with a smile.
55 You met and joined a errant knight and his small court that traveled searching for riches and a new home for this lord and his barren town after the war. After years of service and being brought to be loyal to this cause, the knight died in his sleep all the sudden and his attendants looted the caravan and ran off, leaving you to bury your teacher, pack what gear he had and was left behind and pick up the quest of Knighthood to this unknown lord as he was show.
56 Character [C] was a demon hunter on the desert planet Derach. C fought alongside their small battalion and this group was revered for their efficiency and kept to themselves. One day a strange rift opened and pulled the group apart banishing each of the soldiers to different corners of the universe. C’s only goal once reaching a strange green planet was to find a way to portal back to the demon’s world and find their companions. Unfortunately C was captured by the planets inhabitants and forced into slavery.
57 You only remember the last 5-10 years of your live. Before that it is all blank. Your parents/caretakers/close ones tell you that you had a terrible accident and lost all memory after the accident. But then you find written agreements of your adoption, detailing that you were selected for an experimental form of adoption. This meant that your memory was wiped and your biological parents wiped out. You have been engineered by wizards/scientists to be the perfect human. You then find a note that the amnesia can be reversed if [plot hook] is done. A warning is written in big letters that reversing the amnesia spell might have unforeseen effects.
58 You spent most of your childhood and early adulthood as a farmer, the difficulty of your daily work offset by the amazing times you've had with friends and family. One day, you hit your head on a rock. When you next awoke, you were in leather armor, on a sailing ship as part of an adventuring party. An entire life of adventure, riches, and excitement unfolded, and as you lay down for the last time, surrounded by your allies and loved ones, you woke back up with a pain in your temple, 3 seconds after hitting your head. You can't feel comfortable any more as a farmhand, you need a blade in your hand and a bag of loot at your side.
59 You're a wandering conman, appearing trustworthy as you bend others around your finger, making yourself invaluable to them with the hard work and amazing success you provide. Every time you leave to fulfill your life's dream of finding a perfect spouse, you leave behind a trail of heartbreak, impossible upkeep, and new businesses doomed to fail.
60 You'd probably say that you're about 605-615 now. The years go by in an instant. When you were young you devoted your life to meditation. Recently, you were visited by a boy, who you began to talk with, and would do anything for. He lived, trained with you, and eventually succumbed to age. You, now unquestionably ancient, you have no clue how to interact socially or succeed in anything else, but you want to see what world the boy left behind for you.
61 You've spent your entire life underground, in the same building. Every day, a music box played you a lesson. You learned languages, numbers, history, how to act properly in society, how to assassinate the high king. Now, the doors finally open and you see the outside for the first time. It's time to use all that you've learned.
62 You've always been able to talk to the trees. They tell you interesting things. How they are, what they feel, how those who pass through and around them respect or disrespect them. Recently, the trees have been quieter and quieter. You need to find out why, for their sake... and yours.
63 You were drunk. Your low marks in Thermo meant you wouldn't be on the dean's roll this semester. Your parents were going to lynch you. You spend the night weeping, stumbling into a dark part of campus you didn't recognize. You made a deal. You thought they were going to intimidate your professor for you. You woke up in a hay bale, with no phone poles in sight. You get a strange feeling that you won't be graduating this year.

2017.09.01 21:09 jetstreamer2 [EVENT] National Day 2018

Wednesday, August 9th, 2018
Padang, Singapore
Prime Minister Lee was in his limousine, being driven into the Padang complex when the vehicle stopped at an MP checkpoint. “Welcome to the National Day Parade, please show me your identification papers.” The driver, another MP, handed clearance papers. The checkpoint guard read the papers, stood up straight and saluted, “I wish you the best Mister Prime Minister.” As the limo cruised past the checkpoint, PM Lee looked up and saw the Chinooks flying with the Singaporean Flag. The limo stopped in front of the podium, and as Lee stepped out, the honour guard raised their swords on stomped their feet, looking in the direction of the podium. As Lee walked towards the podium, the crowd started to clap, and Lee smiled to himself.
When he finally reached the podium, the crowd was giving him a standing ovation. “Welcome citizens of Singapore… To National Day 2018!” the crowd went wild, people were waving the flag and jumping. Lee waited for the crowd to settle down. “Ladies and gentlemen, please rise, for the pledge
We, the citizens of Singapore, pledge ourselves as one united people, regardless of race, language or religion, to build a democratic society, based on justice and equality, so as to achieve happiness, prosperity, and progress for our nation.
Mari kita rakyat Singapura
Sama-sama menuju bahagia
Cita-cita kita yang mulia
Berjaya Singapura
Marilah kita bersatu
Dengan semangat yang baru
Semua kita berseru
Majulah Singapura
Majulah Singapura
Marilah kita bersatu,
Dengan semangat yang baru
Semua kita berseru
Majulah Singapura
Majulah Singapura!
“Congratulations to our performers, pyrotechnicians, and staff on presenting us with such an elaborate display, let's give them another round of applause.” The crowd gave a standing ovation with flags waving and red glow sticks filling the air.
“This year’s National Day Speech will cover how Singapore fared in its Total Defense strategy.”
  • “Firstly, keeping Singapore secure, our military defense. We need a strong Military Defence to defend ourselves when attacked or to deter foreign intervention and prevent ourselves from being attacked. To remain operationally ready, our servicemen keep fit, train seriously and keep abreast of the latest military doctrines and equipment. We have certainly improved our Military Defense. We are working with regional allies and the American Successor States to procure a modern, mechanized army. We are replacing old vehicles with new ones to ensure that the Singapore Army remains on the leading edge of military technology. The Singapore Navy will be receiving two more Independence Class vessels to complement its naval activities in Singapore’s territorial waters and abroad.”
  • “Next up is Civil Defense, taking care of our family, friends, and people around us in times of crisis. During times of crisis or disaster, resources will be strained and we will need everyone to pitch in. If we know what to do, we can save ourselves and our loved ones, help others and ensure that life goes on as normally as possible. Learning what to do in an emergency before it happens - such as taking part in emergency exercises and attending first-aid and emergency preparedness programs that the Singapore Civil Defence Force conducts - helps us respond more effectively in times of crisis. Singapore’s Civil Defense luckily did not have to be tested this year in an actual scenario. However, our Civil Defense Force is always ready and on standby to respond to any issues. If you see anything suspicious or feel that your personal security is threatened, please report it to Singaporean authorities immediately.”
  • “Economic Defense, having a strong and resilient economy. Economic Defence is about building up a strong and robust economy that can sustain Singapore through economic challenges and national emergencies. It means that the government, employers and trade unions work together during peacetime to ensure that we have good infrastructure and our economy is competitive. Individuals also play a part by retraining and upgrading, and by keeping up with new technologies and new ways of doing things. When we do this, we help ourselves remain employable as the economy changes. Saving up for a rainy day and adopting environment-friendly practices are also ways to protect ourselves and our future generations. This year, Singapore is experiencing growth not seen in the last three years. Investments from various American, German, and ASEAN companies have revitalized our economy and the economic future of Singapore is bright.”
  • “Social Defense, living harmoniously and looking out for one another.Singapore enjoys social and economic stability because people of all races and religions live together harmoniously. We know what could happen if we allow extremist ideologies and racial prejudice and discrimination to endanger social cohesion and harmony. We befriend, accept and help people of different ethnicities. We show consideration for one another, respecting and being sensitive to the needs and religious and cultural practices of others. We have meals together and invite friends to join in our festivities. Through such small efforts in our daily lives, we are able to better understand and appreciate the heritage, culture, and practices of our fellow countrymen and strengthen our bonds as Singaporeans. We also contribute towards a gracious and compassionate society when we help the less fortunate and underprivileged among us. Singapore is more united than ever, and National Day is a key sign that this is indeed true!”
  • “Psychological Defense, being a resilient people. While being prepared is the key to Total Defense, it is always the fighting spirit, the will, the resilience of Singaporeans that determines whether or not our nation will overcome a crisis. When each Singaporean is resolved and determined to overcome any crisis together, proud of our country and willing to stand up to defend what is ours, we can be assured of a secure future, regardless of the challenge. Smart Nation Initiatives will mean that Singaporeans will have quick and easy access to information in times of emergencies and will have a quick and direct route to contact authorities.”
  • “Total Defence has seen us through SARS, the fall-out from the 9/11 attacks and the economic crises of 1997 and 2008, the haze in recent years, and the fall of the United States. It has become a fundamental aspect of what makes us Singaporean and is shown in the things that we do on a daily basis – whether it is by fulfilling National Service duties, volunteering in Civil Defence activities, working hard and contributing to a strong economy, strengthening community ties with one another regardless of race and religion, or staying committed to defending the country.”
  • “Thank you for listening, I wish all Singaporeans an excellent National Day!”

2016.11.24 10:49 SophieBulsara Korean Buddy review - the process, forced refunds & lack of transparency

KoreanBuddy is a shopping / proxy / buying service that's been mentioned often on here and on Instagram. I wanted lots of hard to find goodies for a lower price than eBay so I placed an order through Korean Buddy.
The Process:
SnowWhiteandthePear & ka_hime expertly detailed this process. Find the product you want on a Korean shop site and post the link in KoreanBuddy.com Order Page. Finding the product from a shop/vendor you like or has positive reviews will be the hardest part. After that, it's an easy process - they respond within 12-36 hours. Korean language descriptions are not necessary. Their customer support is fluent in both languages and will happily help translate details in a product listing. Their Customer Support runs on vCita, so you communicate via chat and all invoices/payments/paperwork are logged in the chat. First, they send an invoice detailing all of or your order requests. My Order Invoice Second, pay that invoice via PayPal or BTC and they'll order your items. Once it all arrives, they will send you a picture to confirm all the products you wanted have arrived Haul Pic and will invoice you for shipping costs + 10% service fee My Fee Invoice.
Shipping
Depending on the shop/vendor you choose, an item can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to arrive anywhere in Korea. Since KB mostly shops online, be aware that holidays and super-popular items may cause delays in shipping to their office (e.g. Special Edition Releases). For my large order, Korean Buddy offered cargo shiping for my package of 6kg (~13 lbs) which reduced the price from $75 (parcel) to $23 (cargo). It was all well-packaged and arrived safely.
Important Note for those considering this shipping option since there are scant details online - It is called "Surface Air" and took ~50 days to ship. Koreapost tracks the package to the ship. Upon arrival to the States, it stayed untracked on the dock for ~7 days, then USPS tracked the package to my home in NYC. If you're not in a rush to receive items and trust the sender to package items very well, it's a great money saver.
Where Things Went Wrong
  1. They made a mistake on one of my orders. No big woop, these things happen. But they covered it up. And then they lied about it and kept reassuring that no mistake was made. Then blamed the seller for the mistakes they made. I had to coax them into a refund after four days of disputing. Part of my order was a "Buy 1 Get 1 Free - You Choose" type of deal. I chose two different illi lotions and asked them twice if the order was correct in wording and in bottle color - First before placing the order, Second, when I received the photo proof of my order. Chat Pic Each time they reassured that the order was right. When asked why a bottle was missing from the proof pic they said "it didn't get into the picture for some reason." Fast forward ~50 days, the package arrives without the lotion I wanted BUT there's a replacement lotion of another variety. Somehow that replacement bottle was not included in the proof pic.
  2. A Gmarket seller falsely advertised for the old formula Sulwhasoo Snowise EX Cleanser. The listing had the old packaging picture and was titled "2013 New" I received the new formula instead. Korean Buddy offered to contact the seller on "false advertising" but I had to ask them on possibly getting a partial refund for receiving the wrong product.
  3. From the chat logs and timestamps, you can see the elaborate back and forth trying to rectify the order problems. There was too much debating the finer details, not owning up to mistakes, vague responses and essentially nagging them for a refund. For a small 2-3 person service, there's no need for all the cover ups, debating and being pushed into a resolution with a buyer. TL:DR No one wants to chase down company CS reps for answers on order mistakes and to get a refund.
How It Blurs Lines on Transparency
  1. All reviewers of KoreanBuddy are eligible for a discount. Link to MOD post on this issue This discount is not explicitly stated in their F.A.Q. as promised but they encourage buyers to post reviews privately as seen in this PM
  2. KB uses loyalty program discounts for most shops. They will encourage you to order from these shops via chat or through their shopping guides. In my case, I used Gmarket on my first order and considered them for a second larger order. Here is the chat section where they claim to not participate in any discount programs and in this chat portion, their CS Rep slips up by redirecting my Interpark order question to a Gmarket listing and quotes a lower price that's not available to non-membership buyers. The rep eventually admits they get at least 8% off Gmarket purchases. That's roughly $10 pocket change for Korean Buddy on my first order. Additionally, they charge a 20% service fee for products they find cheaper on another site. They state on their site: "I’ll find it for you as cheap as I can," With loyalty discounts, that's a lot more pocket change out of your wallet. TL:DR They charge people the publicly available price, use a discount to purchase and pocket the difference. This may be a non-issue for most people and I was conflicted on whether to post it at all. But, considering the overall lack of transparency with KB and the large order I almost placed with them, the issue of non-disclosed discounts is a deal-breaker.

2015.06.05 22:06 bitexla Reporte Semanal #5 2015 I Análisis de Mercado de Bitex.la

Durante la última semana la moneda digital operó a la baja yendo de una cotización de USD 237.35 bajando hasta los USD 219.03. Podemos ver como entre el 27 y 28 de mayo, el precio rompió tímidamente una resistencia anterior que luego recortó de una forma débil, terminando de configurar un movimiento más brusco a la baja entre el 1º y 2 de Junio.
https://d262ilb51hltx0.cloudfront.net/max/884/1*4TIUfMrVGO_RXFC-aplpuw.png
Hoy 05/06/2015 (a las 13 hs UTC) el Bitcoin opera en USD 224.70, el acumulamiento lateral y la falta de fuerza en los volúmenes operado hace que probablemente veamos un recorte en las próximas horas.
El Departamento de servicios financieros del Estado de Nueva York (NYDFS) dio a conocer la versión final de su marco normativo tan esperado para las empresas en moneda digital.
La versión final de la BitLicense viene de casi dos años de investigación de hechos y debate. El NYDFS comenzó la elaboración de las normas después de que determinara que la tecnología no debia ser regulada por la ley estatal existente.
El proyecto de ley no se convertirá en ley hasta su publicación en el registro del estado de Nueva York, una guía emitida por el gobierno semanalmente de las reglamentaciones propuestas.
Aprobación de la Agencia
En declaraciones emitidas por el NYDFS en el foro de los Pagos BITS emergentes en Washington, DC hoy, el superintendente Benjamin Lawsky aclaró que el reglamento definitivo significó que las empresas ya no necesitarán la aprobación de la agencia para cada actualización de software nuevo o ronda de financiación de capital de riesgo.
Otros cambios incluyen el hecho de que las empresas ahora pueden satisfacer los requisitos de licencia BitLicense y la de transimision de dinero al mismo tiempo con una presentación de solicitud de “ventanilla única”.
En general, Lawsky modero su optimismo acerca de la tecnología, reiterando declaraciones anteriores que sugieren que cree bitcoin u otras tecnologías blockchain descentralizadas podrían provocar el cambio necesario en el sector financiero:
. “Estamos muy entusiasmados con el potencial de la moneda digital, se mantiene para ayudar a impulsar cambios atrasados ​​en nuestro sistema de pagos osificado. Simplemente queremos asegurarnos de que ponemos barandas que protejan a los consumidores y erradiquen las actividades ilícitas — sin sofocar la innovación beneficiosa.”
Cambios Limited
Según indicó Lawsky en su discurso, la versión final de la liberación se limita a la sección 200.10. Esta sección tiene por objeto aclarar cuando las empresas que trabajan con moneda digital necesitarían la aprobación del NYDFS para ciertas acciones, o ‘cambios’.
En la última versión, se define un cambio como algo “propuesto a un producto existente, servicio o actividad que pueda causar tal producto, servicio o actividad sean materialmente diferentes de que anteriormente indicada en la solicitud para la concesión de licencias por el superintendente.”
Esto incluye los casos que presentan cuestiones legales o reglamentarias, como resultado de la actualización o si la actualización plantea problemas de seguridad.
Lawsky dijo:
“No tenemos ningún interés en la microgestión de actualizaciones de aplicaciones de menor importancia. No somos Apple.”
Varias propuestas presentadas por la comunidad de la moneda digital estuvieron ausentes, incluidas las exenciones para las entidades que trabajan en los protocolos de código abierto y los micropagos, junto a un plazo de puerto seguro de 24 meses para nuevas empresas en fase inicial.
‘Los primeros innings’
Aunque Lawsky fue positiva en sus declaraciones sobre la tecnología, su discurso también apuntó a la comunidad tecnológica y a la obligación de los reguladores.
La red social argentina Taringa ha visto un aumento en la generación de contenidos en un promedio de 40 a 50% después de que los usuarios se unieran a su nueva iniciativa de propina bitcoin.
El programa, ‘Taringa Creadores’, combina un modelo de reparto de ingresos con ad-sistema de clasificación único de la red social con el objetivo de incentivar el intercambio de contenido generado por usuarios.
Los creadores de contenido registrados con el esquema de propina bitcoin de Taringa reciben una cartera XAPO y una parte de la publicidad distribuida en bitcoin por Taringa. Los usuarios pueden inclinar mutuamente en bitcoin, como cada creador recibe 10 puntos diarios para distribuir entre los demás usuarios. Cuando distribuidos, estos puntos son emitidos en moneda digital.
La iniciativa se encuentra todavía en fase beta, con 2000 usuarios que constituyen los mejores creadores de contenidos de la plataforma que participan en esta etapa. Hablando sobre la decisión de implementar porpina bitcoin, el cofundador de Taringa Hernán Botbol dijo a CoinDesk:
“Siempre hemos querido ofrecer a nuestros usuarios una recompensa económica, porque creemos que es justo. Queremos que más y más personas publiquen en Taringa y para que estas personas puedan finalmente ser capaces de abandonar sus puestos de trabajo y dedicar su tiempo exclusivamente a las publicaciónes en Taringa. “
La viabilidad del Bitcoin
Botbol dijo que su equipo había explorado varias opciones de pago, los cuales hacia necesario a los usuarios tener una cuenta bancaria.
“Siempre ocurrió el mismo problema, la mayoría de las personas de la región no tienen una cuenta bancaria, no tienen una tarjeta de débito y las transferencias de dinero son generalmente caras,” dijo.
Planes para recompensar a los usuarios fueron dejados de lado, hasta que el equipo se acercó a un buen amigo y empresario argentino, Wences Casares, fundador y CEO del proveedor de servicios de bitcoin XAPO.
Empuje y Desarrollo
Botbol enmarca el proceso de hoy en día como uno de lo que está sentando las bases para un ecosistema de usuario más en profundidad.
“Con el tiempo vamos a tener una gran cantidad de personas que tengan los fondos en su cartera XAPO y podran acceder a juegos, streaming de cuentas, etc”, explicó.
“Estamos investigando la implementación de un botón de donación que permita a los usuarios con bitcoin donar directamente desde Taringa”, dijo Botbol.
Educación Bitcoin
Botbol dijo que la posición ventajosa de Taringa en el mercado argentino — que se acredita con tener 26 millones de usuarios — ayudará a impulsar la adopción de bitcoin en el país.
Botbol agregó que Taringa espera tener un máximo de un millón de carteras bitcoin en 2016. Para llegar hasta allí, dijo, supondrá un impulso social que permita la compra en línea por los consumidores.
“Si bitcoin va a alcanzar la adopción generalizada, lo hará en la Argentina”, concluyó.
Hernán Botbol está hablando en Consenso de 2015 en Nueva York. Únete a él en el TimesCenter el 10 de septiembre. Una lista de los oradores del evento se puede encontrar aquí.

El Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) anunció esta semana que utilizará la tecnología de Ripple para facilitar los pagos entre sus filiales, que describe los protocolos distribuidos como “el camino hacia el futuro”. En mayo pasado, Fidor de Alemania se convirtió en el primer banco en integrar el protocolo Ripple en su infraestructura de pagos, con dos bancos de Estados Unidos, CBW Bank y Cross River Bank, siguiendo su ejemplo cuatro meses después. El sitio de noticias de tecnología CIO cita de la CBA del propio Jefe de Información David Whiteing diciendo que el banco había “hecho un montón de experimentos” con bitcoin y otras tecnologías de criptomoneda. Whiteing dijo que no ve ninguna razón por la cual las cuentas bancarias no puedan utilizarse para almacenar dinero fiduciario, cryptocurrencies y otros activos como loyalty points de tiendas en el futuro. Y agregó: “Bitcoin es un protocolo que está siendo replicado por proveedores no basados en activos como Ripple y otros. Vemos que es a donde se va a ir. El banco tiene un papel que jugar en eso.” Un portavoz confirmó a CoinDesk que el CBA ha estado llevando a cabo pruebas con tecnologías criptomoneda. La organización comenzará un experimento más amplio, con una de sus afiliadas en alta mar para explorar los beneficios de las transferencias intrabancarias que utilizan estos protocolos, dijeron, añadiendo: “La idea es poner a prueba en un ambiente controlado lo que una transferencia interna de banco a banco puede tener un aspecto como el uso de la criptografía en lugar de proveedores de pago existente. Nos aseguramos que nuestras pruebas permanezcan internas dentro de la Commonwealth Bank Group y continuaremos cumpliendo con todos los requisitos legales y los requisitos reglamentarios. “ El gigante bancario Mientras que su decisión de utilizar Ripple para pagos entre filiales sigue siendo experimental, mero tamaño del Banco Commonwealth ha hecho su anuncio más significativo. El grupo bancario de 104 años de edad, es uno de los “cuatro grandes”de Australia. De acuerdo con el Informe Anual 2014, tuvo ganancias por AU $ 8.65bn ($ 6.84bn) y tiene más de 44.300 empleados a tiempo completo. CBA adquirió recientemente un negocio relacionado con la banca-digital en África del Sur, Tyme capital. Whiteing hizo varias referencias a las soluciones de banca y pagos móviles, especialmente en África, donde 1,2 millones de personas tienen ahora mayor acceso a los servicios de telefonía móvil que las redes bancarias tradicionales. La Aplicación de banca móvil del CBA en Australia ya soporta hasta 15 monedas internacionales, permitiendo a sus 3,5 millones de usuarios realizar pagos instantáneos en el que sea que elijan. “no debería ser tan difícil” añadir cryptocurrencies a esa lista, dijo. Enfoque de Asia-Pacífico Ripple Labs y su filial XRP II parecíeran estar pasando por un período difícil después de ser multados con 700,000 dólares por el Financial Crimes Enforcement Network de Estados Unidos (FinCEN) por la falta de notificación de determinadas operaciones en 2013–14. Se recuperó sólo dos semanas más tarde, sin embargo, con el anuncio de que había recaudado $ 28 millones en la Serie A de financiación de varias empresas de capital de riesgo y tecnología. Como parte de sus esfuerzos de expansión, Ripple laboratorios anunció a principios de abril que abriria filiales en la región de Asia-Pacífico para centrarse en los más de $ 3bn de comercio intra-asiático, que se espera que supere los flujos de comercio de Europa para ser el de grande para el año 2016 el mundo. Su primera oficina regional inauguró en Sydney bajo el nuevo director gerente Dilip Rao, y actualmente se está llevando a cabo una unidad de contratación local.
