"arthur merlin" Discussed on DLC
"Two hundred and fifty dollars will on Amazon. If you WANNA coffee so I would suggest going unmatched which is much much much less than had Because it stores they. They have just kind of public domain characters but they've chosen really interesting stuff So right now And some some licensed characters well right now the characters that they have out our Allison Wonderland King Arthur's Sindbad Medusa Bigfoot Robin Hood and Bruce Lee is a fictional character but And they all play super simple. You just have a deck and it's usually either just Formosa characters they have what's called the sidekick so to them. It's you have the little miniature for for the main character and then you can have disks that represent. The other people's like Medusa has a bunch of different ones. Robin Hood has a ton of different little Mary. Men Side Kicks King. Arthur Merlin Bigfoot has the Jack Elope so they will they and they and you get a deck of cards in this you so some cards will say couldn't be by ear characters so maybe just are bigfoot cards in summer. Jekyll cards and they will have special powers in so you really gotta learn your deck. So it's it. It's one of these games again. Very easy to teach somebody two minutes you can get up and running on this thing But learning the decks learning your opponents deck and trying to predict what cards they might have in playing around like. Medusa has this deadly very deadly stone gays card which does like ten points of damage in twenty. Kill you so it's just huge and so trying to play around that and just knowing that she has it is make things interesting. So it's just I've only played a two player. There's a four player version as well for teams But the the two player game with all those different characters and they've got new ones coming out this Jurassic Park coming out with some dinosaurs Just all kinds of crazy stuff that they've got planned for it a different boards that you can play on it's it's just a real topnotch. Smooths butter kind of game. Yeah and Christian again very much up your alley here because the teamed up with Mondo. I know you're a big fan of Mondo right the My Wall stuff in my their puzzles should be coming here next month. Yeah so the art and Art designed the The aesthetic of this game is very cool. Wolf very cool. It's Mondo sort of minimalist art deco looking kind of take all these characters. And that's why they can do. I think that's why they can do stuff like Jurassic Park Air. Also kind of leveraging Mondo Mongo's Miami relationships so it clearly is a huge hit not to be the Star Wars. You know you it's like Sinbad is a far cry Darth vader but for I think for enthusiasm and the general public but everything I've heard about this game is just that it's it's so simple and so fun and in the Pfizer so wild and wooly I heard the one complaint. I think people that it's a lot. It's kind of random and a little luck based Because you don't know how to you know how strategically it's kind of just a random. What what your opponent is GonNa play on there and I mean is that when you play. You don't know what defense cards somebody has so. Yeah but you've got multiples of most of your key card. You must in your second and you only get to go through your deck. What's right when you reach the end? It's like Har- stone. You know you start taking damage every time you need to draw cartoons anything to draw so there's a ultimate time round a game so yeah but it's so quick right. It's you know you talk in ten or fifteen minutes for a game that you just swap sides and do it again or you know you can play and you don't feel like you're victimized. I mean if you're playing a game and you're getting hosed by the the luck the car draw eleven right then that's a problem in ten fifteen minute game. It's it's not as big a deal. Well I I haven't played this yet. I know restoration games. You know the same company that did the Fireball Island Remai- and Dr Tower. And you know just kind of out of the park right now and so many people. The the biggest question I get about tabletop games is recommended to player thing recommended player thing. I love to do a to play the especially. Now when people are stuck in their houses in the you know the all they have is couple. People may be their spouse or their significant other This just seems like the perfect thing. It doesn't take a lot to learn it. You can learn at super-quick and play super-quick and man I. It just seems like a homerun unmatched is what it's called. Yep definitely worth And just real quick. I just would be remiss if I have mentioned one of my favorite games through the ages which is in game from the early two thousands VLADA BOTTLE. A master designer. His range is unmatched so this is like a sieve building game but is his most recent game as codenames which which a lot of people. I'm sure are familiar with the best party game. Come at a long time. So he's his games are just like from Super Complex to super easy. He's just masters the mullets. I am totally jealous. It's like a Mutt Situation here but So there's a really fantastic app of version of through the ages. Just the adaptation of it is fantastic. I will not play the actual physical game of it anymore. Only play on the APP and I usually have like five or six games going so if you want a try it out. I highly recommend this APP and I'd be happy to show anybody the ropes. If you reach out to me you know it's funny. I've only ever played roll through the ages. I've never actually played through the ages. But I I. Maybe I'll show you that we should do that. I'm sure you'll own me but we should definitely do that. All right. Very very cool. Jeff leave it up to you I know is late where you are we can we can do some vr talk. If you WANNA talk about Alex or we can. We can do the show all right. That's fine I just so I can hear the same.
"arthur merlin" Discussed on Happier with Gretchen Rubin
"I'm Gretchen Rubin and this is a little happier one thing I've learned about myself is that I'm very literal I'm very straightforward I want I unfold in the linear way I think a lot about the rules and the right way to do things and while this is sometimes my strength it's also sometime James My weakness so I always watch for examples when someone sees a solution that I wouldn't see or grasps a possibility that would never have occurred to me one example of this has delighted me for years the novelist John Steinbeck is very well known for work such as the Grapes of wrath east of Eden and the Pearl for many years he worked intensively on a book that was a retelling of the myth of King Arthur which in the end became his novel the acts of King Arthur and his noble knights in a letter to his editor Chase Horton on August tenth nineteen fifty nine Steinbeck's discusses the problem of when in history to set his telling of the myth of King Arthur I know that for me as a writer the issue would have presented a very straightforward set of questions what period would I choose how much research what I need to do to be historically accurate did they have the rules of chivalry did they have horse shoes how exactly did people dress at the time and so on but perhaps because of his deep knowledge of the work of other Thor's or perhaps because of his own mastery steinbeck found another solution one that I know wouldn't have occurred to me but the minute I read his solution I knew it was exactly right now before I read this excerpt from his letter there's a backstory you should know when Steinbeck I to what Mallory did he's referring to Sir Thomas Mallory who in fourteen eighty five wrote one of the best known versions of the stories of King Arthur Merlin Granite Beer and the knights of the Round Table Steinbeck wrote to Horton one thing Mallory did he plays his time as before now there is a curious time and one I have tried to adopt time interval in the past is a very recent Conception for instance Julius Caesar found no difficulty in being descended from Venus and didn't feel the event very remote I have the following choices I can choose a period and stick with it making this whole work a period piece which I don't like because these stories are universal or I can make the past large composite curtain called before now that is actually how most people see the past in this pattern the lake village and the Tuscany merchant can both operate because both belong to the before the only things that cannot enter our the things of the present the now but on the other hand to human problems must all be of the now I read this Passage Years ago and I've never forgotten it because I know as a writer I wouldn't ever have figured this out I couldn't have imagined that I could just not worry about it and the minute that I read it I realized that for this story it was a brilliant solution if I were writing a story if I chose I could just throw in anything from the past that strengthened it whether it was. Berkeley accurate or not I have joust pilgrims gestures cathedrals castles windmills alchemists all thrown together in a pageant of before once I read that I saw the possibility when we know ourselves when we understand our strength and our limitations we can watch for opportunities to learn and to expand our sense of possibilities and we can appreciate better those the world in a different way or who would different choices John Steinbeck found a solution that I would not have found and I've learned from his example I'm Gretchen Rubin and.

"And they can curse you with never ending diarrhea. If they look you in the eye wink before you look away, our winked is. And then you feel it so head. No. If you won't but that's your call. You're the king. But boy, Howdy gonna be a literal shit show. We leave this land of the hot springs in the in the sexy, ladies and whatnot. No one really knows what the original idea of dragons comes from so many different types of dragons, and somebody from with allergies hard to say they're important enough to our three and legend to have Arthur have his last name. B Pendragon, the chief of dragons, now, let's talk about wizards briefly electrical. While there's only one Merlin, there's no question that he is the most famous wizard of all time. Others have been labelled as wizards. The Merlin of Japan has to be ABI. No see may the Japanese legends of AVI. No seem a ascribe him a number of supernatural abilities. He would oversee the emperor, spirituality, banish evil spirits to rid of illnesses, one famous story says he got his power from his mother, who happened to be a white FOX. So dad real kinky, dude, a little bit FOX fucking op seem as story filled with demons slain magical combat some serious, jet masters shit. That is kind of weird. All these animal store. It really does. I know joked around the past, it's like we're just fucking animals a lot back then why does someone of these myths have like one parent, who? Human on the other parent who's an animal and it doesn't seem like anybody who's like what, what I mean? If you thought that through you're like, okay, guess his guy who's out fucking. Fox's the story of Merlin actually helped create more interest in becoming a wizard back with when more people sauce, itself was real. One of these people was out, you know, thirteenth century scholars thought to be a source for Michael Scott, one of the greatest minds of his time, he's remembered for having doozy Asiatic injuries and occult subjects and practices, as well as more mainstream, subjects Scott was the personal astrologer to the Holy Roman Emperor and was a tutor to the pope probably wasn't shit when he's with the pope, but maybe you know, aluminum d do what luminosity do Scott was credited with making successful predictions, curing illnesses changing the course of a river, even making a robot a sand us, even reference in Dante's inferno. He ended up getting stuck in the wizard level of hell, probably pretty fun level to get stuck on really one more wizard his fellow. This guy was the adviser to Queen Elizabeth and the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. His name was John D. Said of being called a wizard usually called a mathematician, astronomers geology alchemist cold philosopher, he also advocated for the expansion of England, credited with coining the term the British empire while he was a man of science expert, navigation and promoter of Matthew, also a super interested in some wizard shit. He's with last thirty years of his life, trying to commune with angels to bring about a pre apocalypse situation by learning the universal language of creation, low cookie as you got older. And then there would be other people like former sucks subject, Alex Crowley, who thought studying the Colt, give them wizard like powers and. Yeah. And so that there's some additional wizards it wasn't just Arthur. But, you know, I'm sure Arthur in legends inspired other people to have wizard mythology in their own cultures. So now time for some final thoughts. I, I hope he learned way more about our three and legend, and how it helps shape England, which then shaped United States, and so many other nations, we learned way more than you already knew thinking about how much talk of knights wizards dragons cetera exists, in our culture today. Lot of it comes from the tales. King Arthur Merlin nights. The roundtable. In conclusion was was Arthur real. No. I don't think so..

"Around his only supernatural gifts in one story about the birth of Arthur Merlin paves, the way for the birth of ours through some dirty wizard trickery, check of this nonsense Arthur's father who three Pendragon a king falls in love with a grin or grain. The wife of Duke Gordo's of Cornwall, or whole of tin Taegu castle, depending on who was telling the tale and utha. He's fucking names are so dumb, by the way. I'm sure they're good at the time some names do not. Hold on. I paul. If we have a lot of youth, or Pendragon out there and a lot of grins and gore Loiseau's fuck while. Oh, my key magin naming a kid like that today. These are my these are my children, we have youth over, and it grain and tin, tackle, what fucking. Do because at my house youth or asked Merlin to help him figure out a way to impregnate grain knows you can't just barge into the castle and take her by fourth force, which he obviously, is thought about because the story includes him, discussing the only one entrance. Do Duke Gauloise castle in the duke's men were too strong for him to easily sack is fortress, so Pendragon turns to Merlin and Merlin shapeshifts transforms youth are also written his almond. That's even dumber. I don't like the name change. It's sexy up. How about how about oment do you like L mud? Do you want to be called own mud? Yeah. Yes. I do like that. You have written is into ingrains husband so essentially author becomes his enemy. Walks or raw walks right into the castle and basically raped his enemies wife impregnating her with his Royal seat. And then he walks fuck out, and this is why Arthur is referred to his ambassador to many stores part of the reason makes him more likeable like Jon snow. He's Jon snow. The more learn about all of this. By the way, the more obvious. It is how the game of thrones saga also heavily influenced by Arthur in legend interesting orders. Dad being pretty rapi was a real problematic for, for people back in the day, when they're hearing these stories, a lot of old myths. If you really look at him loud, pretty rapi old miss out there. No wonder sexual assault still a prevalent crime today. We, we gave it a pass on some level for centuries. Merlyn was introduced into the service of king Pendragon well before the birth of Arthur in another EPA tale. This one involving dragons, the stories actually Geoffrey of Monmouth attempted the origin of Britain's story, the people of Merlin's time or bit bit backwoods -i at a pretty strong pagan streak and then that included a fair amount of human sacrifice at one story. They were actually searching for a bastard child to kill place under. The foundation of a tower. The king was building to keep it from falling down, because, you know that's the best way to strengthen your foundation is to put some kid bones in there and sadly, a lotta shit is based on truth, which which reminds me of the Aztec suck bunch of meat. Sacks. At one time, thought it was totally reasonable to kill an innocent child and bury their body in the foundation of a castle tower, the gods demand it. The more I come across age religions, the better. I feel about the historical Christian atrocities committed by the way, a lot of people died in the name of Christianity. However many pre Christian religions arguably much more brutal and much more..

"It's yes. Coming out not true. Unless a whole lot of other books that were written about King, Arthur, have been lost. I personally do think he's making his shit up just based on campfire tales because Gildas original account of this battle, the battle of Badin did in fact survive Jeffrey knew about this book. And in that book, we know the Gildas didn't mention Arthur. And if anyone should have mentioned him, it should have been gilded to me that is enough to prove that, like, now this guy, this guy didn't actually exist in zone time now, the Jeffries given Arthur, far, more historical legitimacy than he deserves the twelfth century proceeds to write a bunch of historical accounts about the guy that would become the basis for a lot of our thirty and legends bunch of short stories about Arthur Merlin, all sorts of people who probably never existed, doing this, or that, and what he lacks in his historical accuracy. He makes up for in great imagination Jeffrey with his inspired writing turns Arthur from an interesting, bad s briefly mentioned by a few other authors into an inspiring legendary mythical figure that we still talk about to this day with Jeffrey Arthur's given armor and a helmet. A gold adorned with a sign of the virgin. Mary, his weapons. Become the powerful lands known as Ron the mighty sword caliber, n-, caliber, and sounds pretty mighty. I like that work and compasses the word burn pretty bad ass. Makes me think of some sort of fiery weapon used to kill white. Walkers game of thrones, but Ron. Like RO in, like fucking like wrong. Like your friend, Ron. This is my powerful. Lance ron. She doesn't hold up. Maybe maybe that names animal more powerful back then. I don't feel like Ron translates to the present very well as the all inspiring moniker. Some powerful death weapon Steinbeck do not make me attack. Hugh, with Ron, if Ron does not frighten you. Maybe I should grab my Mace, Gary, perhaps, I shall pick up my double X, do not make me take my double ax into battle noth- Haniel. Well, these saves gonna tax with aks, Nathaniel Jeffrey, also changes the name of the battle of bad and hill to the battle of the bath, and he gives Arthur specific personal enemy to fight in his battle awesome. Nice story building here. He's doing the Saxon leader. Children name change later tales to certify the Saxons, and Jeffrey story have taken an oath to Arthur's tributaries and just as quickly have broken it, the great battle is transformed from a defensive stand spoken of by Gildas bead, and then into an offensive campaign for the very welfare of authors country, and his personal data for the glory of England. Although Arthur, loses significant of men in the battle of the bath, you wins the day, personally, killing four hundred seventy sex swine and he drives children from the field for seventy what a.
