The only roguelike I ever loved was and is ADOM. Can any comrade recommend me stuff that is as similar to ADOM as possible without being ADOM?
>>8824 ADOM has different dungeons like a Zelda game yeah? with an overworld?
>>8824 Caves of Qud is sorta like it, it has randomly generated worlds but set-in-stone dungeons, it has a story emphasis both with static elements of the story as well as randomly generated history (like fallen countries, ancient rulers, ect), and has a lot of different ways to play, from a pysker straight out of warhammer 40k including demons using your mind as a portal to enter the real world, as a heavily armored knight who is basically built as a tank, to a wild west gunslinger dual-wielding pistols, and if you chose to be pure human rather than a mutie, you can become a cyborg which allows for even more class distinctions, at the cost of not getting mutations.

Red Metal Anonymous Comrade 05/22/2020 (Fri) 22:44:58 No. 9863 [Reply] [Last]
As an avid listener of metal, something that frustrates me is the prevalence of chuds and reactionaries in metal (especially black metal). The visibility of guys like Varg and Famine of Peste Noire infamy has colored the public perception of extreme metal as being the domain of edgelord fascists. What are some metal groups that could be said to be socialist, anarchist, or leftist in some manner? To start things off, I'd highly recommend the Panopticon album "Kentucky," which is a BM album about the state's history with labor organizing among coal miners, as well as the coal industry's destruction of the state's natural beauty. It's not a perfect album by any means but the way it mixes BM with bluegrass is cool, plus it has an incredibly redpilled message. https://youtu.be/gSObRNcPAv8 https://youtu.be/2zwxEKmoVD4

I don't get it when people say "real sword fighting wouldn't look good". I don't think anyone's advocating for 100% realism. I'm sure boxing in movies and irl look different too. Perhaps it's different for the uninformed, but historical swordplay looks better every way. Hell, some exchanges in sparring can be as theatrical as cinema all while being technically sound. Since exaggerating or slowing bladework even with good technique for safety and the viewers' benefit is already a given, the next best aim would be to give "masters" or "experts" good and distinct forms when moving and fighting. Body language is part of acting, no? Have a gander at Robert and his opponents: https://youtu.be/ju0t2z0p-c4 https://youtu.be/T2LkXMhhKSY https://youtu.be/eDpANnct46U And if you want fancy shit, the masters have it too: https://youtu.be/0dnGNJvoNeQ Or you can be fancy in a sensible way: https://youtu.be/oQ88cuzsyqE https://youtu.be/WDoYXHdNbTU

Making a leftist youtube channel. Anonymous Comrade 05/27/2020 (Wed) 00:27:56 No. 9948 [Reply] [Last]
ITT we help each other and guide each other on how to conduct a succesful youtube channel and to spread the word of /leftypol/ through breadtube. Theory is now transmitted through youtube let's plays. To make a youtube channel, you need: >An editing software and editing skills. >Knowledge on how to make thumbnails using photoshop (?). >Knowdlege about how to make a script to your videos, how to mantain them interesting for the audience. >Knowdledge to evade youtube's desmonetizations, as it has been proven that they also affect how Youtube interacts with the videos, pretty much shadow banning them. >Knowdledge of the tech market to buy the best microphone for your buck. >Knowledge to record yourself without looking to out of place. >Knowledge to read a script with passion, instead of reading a school essay. Make Leftube Leftypol Again.

Good idea. >>9960 It doesn't matter if your content goes viral. Some people just follow whatever's popular. A lot of people seek out niche or less mainstream content. Particularly, there is demand from communists for decent quality content that attracts your attention, and if your video is interesting and engaging, without being to larpy or dogmatic out the gate, then it can be a good way to persuade sympathisers and political fence sitters. If you want some inspiration, prolekult is a really good cinematic quality channel on youtube, I highly recommend them. What sort of videos are you interested in making?
Bump, I agree
>>9960 I've thought about the algorithms thing and I have an idea. This came to me after theory pleeb and pals tried to do a youtube walkout. I'll explain the logic fully so you can poke any holes in my case here. If you want a short version just read the last paragraph for the actual praxis. Striking as a youtuber doesn't make any sense, because youtube doesn't follow the usual business model of worker making a product and youtube selling it for profit. First of all youtube is not profitable to begin with, so any ad money is just offsetting the loss google takes on the platform. Second of all, political videos tend to get demonetized meaning they are not a source of revenue for youtube that can be withheld by striking. Rather, the relationship between the worker (content creator) and employer (youtube) is very different. When you (small time youtuber) upload content to youtube, youtube actually loses money. This is because it costs them money to host the video files and metadata and stream that to people and they get basically nothing in return for it. What money they do get comes from premium subscriptions and monetized videos, especially the ones from major media companies that put shit like Jimmy Fallon on youtube. That's why the algorithm relentlessly pushes it. Whatever money youtube makes from datamining small-scale users is dwarfed by the cost of streaming all that video. The only reason youtube tolerates this kind of thing and hasn't fully become like hulu/netflix is because they depend on small time viewers to watch the big time videos, and the only reason the viewers are on youtube at all instead of netflix/hulu is because of all the unique user-generated content youtube offers. It's the one thing they have on the competition, so they won't give it up and lose market share, even though the company loses money. So if the relationship is different and striking is pointless, what could actually be a meaningful way of engaging in direct action against youtube? You have to look at the material situation and work from that. Figure out what gets them money and deny them that. Figure out what costs them money and give them more of that. In a nutshell, upload more videos and DO NOT monetize them. If you want to monetize your videos for you, do it externally through another service. And when people ask why they can't superchat or join through youtube premium tell them how youtube takes a cut, and so on, that you are denying them revenue from your labor. Good time to slip in something about socializing/nationalizing youtube too. But again that's still pretty vague and simple. We're also fighting The Algorithm, so let's work that into how we can resist youtube. Youtube doesn't want to show actually relevant videos. Our political opponents like to sometimes false flag videos and take them down. More video on youtube's servers means less money for them at little cost to us. Kill 3 birds with one stone and MIRROR each others' videos. For every youtuber you think should get a boost, reupload a copy of a video you think represents them well and link to their channel in the description. Hell, edit a bumper to the beginning to tell people what you're doing and/or cut it into a highlight reel or trailer. Whatever makes the most sense to you. Just be courteous -- get their permission first and tell them what you're doing. This will: strengthen the algorithmic connection between us by increasing crosslinking, make the content more resilient to censorship, AND finally it will increase the operating costs for youtube. The last one puts the company in a more precarious and vulnerable bargaining position so that workers, the government, entities like Joerg Sprave's youtubers union, and so on will be in a better position to negotiate. Mind you, this only works if it's practiced by a network of people at scale.
>Audio Learn how to mix and get a good mic. I can't tell you how many fags I've heard recording their voices full of background noise, buzzing, low volume, clipping, etc. Get audio software (DAW) (Audacity and Mixcraft are good for starters), get some plugins and learn what compressing, limiting and equalizing are.

Gratitude journaling Anonymous Comrade 12/23/2019 (Mon) 23:51:13 No. 4712 [Reply] [Last]
I watched a video in support of gratitude journaling which claimed it's one of the best ways to feel more positive about life. I'm not sure how I feel about the idea, smacks a bit of self help woo woo but at the same time it isn't like it would be that difficult to try out. Video for anyone curious https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPPPFqsECz0

>>4777 > I'm just so angry, and unhappy, and hopeless. I wish things were different than this. A gratitude journal would be a good start then, I also recommend cognitive-behavioral therapy like the classic book "Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy". The world surely sucks from the leftist pov but why pile all the negativity onto your mind? You can reshape your thinking patterns to focus on the best parts of your life. For example, recall when you've been generous with your time, skills, material things. You can think about the impact you've produced: no matter how small in the grand scheme of things, it means something to the people you helped. Maybe you can join some mutual aid group to have more opportunities for the good deeds...

>>9924 Yeah... I guess... It's fucking hard being a leftist in this day and age let alone being a doomer leftist with no job. I don't feel like anything I've contributed to the world really matters, because of course it doesn't - nobody is going to give me a decent life cause of it so what did anything I did really mean? If I can't live then what point is there in trying to do good deeds or improve things for anyone else? I think I'm quite a caring and good natured person on the whole but it rubs me the wrong way to think about bothering to do something for others when I need help and it doesn't come. Why should I stick my neck out when nobody will do it for me? And why should I even try get a job or whatever when I feel so certain it won't make a difference? I just want someone to help me and pull me out of this because I can't do it on my own. And it doesn't matter if 'but you have to, nobody else can fix your life', etc etc, I can't! Don't they understand that? Doesn't anybody care? What if I can't pull myself up and fix it, what then?
