2023.06.09 07:38 Hurricane_Camille Things to Do in Baton Rouge this Weekend

Last week, u/ExistentialPuggle posted an amazing list of things to do in Baton Rouge that weekend and a lot of people got excited about all the fun things going on, while others shared adfitional events happening around the city. One Redditor commented that they didn’t realize how many great things Baton Rouge has going on and this is something I’ve noticed happening a lot, so my goal is to let people know all the great things Baton Rouge has to offer and hope they share it with others.
Adam Knapp, BRAC’s new president, said his biggest concern is that compared to other cities like Lafayette and New Orleans, Baton Rouge does not have “insane community pride” and looking at this subreddit proves he’s right. I know its hard to be proud of this city. I know we’ll never be #1 on any positive list and am use to scrolling down to the bottom lists to find us but I’m a Baton Rougian for life and try to find as much pride to have in gvis city as possible.
I’m usually a lurker and not much if a poster, so it might take me a few tries to get the format right. Also, with Reddit deciding to compleywly fuck over 3rd party apps, I’m not aure how easy posting will be once Apollo no longer exists.
The places I’m currently looking for events are news sources, local magzines, the library and local wbesite. If you have any other recommendations on where to look, please share.
Please share any other events I might have missed!
(Due to this being a late night Thursday adventure, I’m probabaly only going to be able to posts this weekend’s events, but my goal is to add on events that are ongoing in the area)

2023.06.08 21:18 SSexyIsabelle Just watched baddies west auditions and I have some thoughts

First of all, I watched baddies west before the auditions. I didn’t sub to Zeus until a month ago
Let me start off by saying, Bri is one of my favorite bad girls. Jela was also up there too
However, their attitude was absolutely repulsive specifically Bri. It was giving hater. I understand most of the contestants were trying too hard to get a wristband. But Rollie and Scottie seemed like the only 2 who wanted to see what everyone was about.
Jela would next women that she felt like weren’t pretty enough. And Bri only wanted to give like 2 people a wristband.
If the contestants didn’t have a name brand purse/good weave/brag about making sooo much money then Jela/Bri wouldn’t even look at them.
I know this was monthsss ago but like damn I was super disappointed in Bri/Jela. Scotty definitely kept it professional and Rollie seemed very mature.
And out of all those girls they pick BIGGIE? Is it because she bragged about being the “richest person in PVD?”
Sorry just had to rant, if anyone has anything else they’d like to add I’d love to hear others opinions

2023.06.08 17:00 bob_dabuilda Baddies concept art for fiction Baddies video game

I think it would be dope if they made a Baddies fighting video game like Mortal Kombat, with side missions like Grand Theft Auto. The side missions could be recording a song (Rollie), gaining gang turf (Stunna) or cultivating weed farmsshoe. Here's how I'd envision the character looks:
Razor -a deep purple bodysuit with a keyhole front. Lots of skin to show off the tats. Her look is part of the inspiration because gamers would love her crossover.
Stunna- gets a western cowgirl theme with chaps, since shes from Sac and Old Sac has 1850's western style architecture and roads. I see her look with lots of browns and blacks and a gun holster. She'll have silver chains that match the silver spurs on her boots. Her look is on slide 2. Her special move is calling her cousins to shoot the opponent up.
Tommie-Gets the Tommie shades with that thong I'm jeans look. Her special moves are using a tazer and calling her crew to jump in.
Scotty -gotta get that Starburst pink. Or that blue look from the reunion. Hernsecondary looknwould be a sexy DragonBall Z uniform since she's a fan of the show.
Natalie- that leopard madame look from the intro. She sits on that throne as well and her special move is to have that throne land on the opponent and she walks on them.
Rollie- that baby blue bodysuit, and she gets that wig that was half up, half down. If she loses a round she pulls off her wig to get ready for round 2.
Bri- that Cammi inspired look from when she fought Ann.

2023.06.08 04:21 sgtjoy Battle plans. Along for the ride.

Jesus watched the scene over again and was in awe. This was a man who would not change as he could not change. There was something else different. He was the most stubborn man alive in Jesus’ opinion and he had been around a while. His uniform never changed his cologne never changed. His hair was the exact same way. He had a biological age of 42 but a calendar age of 300 or so years. He wasn’t exactly sure since he had been born in a time when records were incomplete. Government was just getting back on its feet when he came into the world so who knew? Did it matter?
He had never espoused a political belief. He voted in every election and that was it. He was no campaigner and was not interested in any of it. He had a baseline distrust of ALL politicians. He had more time in command than any human in history. He had faced down alien races. He had been nearly terminated by pirates more than once but speaking in public scared the shit out of him. and He did not want to do it. He had done a series of lectures 60 years ago that resulted in some significant fallout he was eager to not relive. He did not want to discuss it. He knew what was about to happen.
“Class dismissed”
The Dean of Students asked him to “Please please just this once set it straight and walk away from it. You did what you had to do at the time.” He knew it hurt when he was called “conquistador”. The Monday Morning Quarterbacker’s weren’t there when decisions had to be made, and neither was the dean, yet he still implored him. It would likely be televised too. Ken had built the best laid wall of obfuscation he could. He did not want any glory. He wanted to be left alone. Despite his best effort it did not work. His hope had been to be in the background making the best decision without regard to any so called “Glory” His hope was that the sailors in real danger would get the credit they deserved. It just did not work. Besides, it was clear that he wanted him to talk about that battle. This made him waver in his assent. He wanted to speak about what he wanted to speak about. Simple.
Admiral Pearl and He had had to face a hero’s welcome when they came home. Then the detractors started in on him.
Despite the promises of the Dean it would just open all the old wounds back up again and likely crank the peanut gallery up to full tilt. “I do not want it televised. You can record it if you want but I get to decide if it gets released. Deal or no deal? If you want to dictate the topic then that is my condition. You are asking me to open up a box I have had welded shut for years now. Anyone can look up the logs and watch every single shot and hit if they wish. It has been analyzed to death. What further can I add at this point? There is nothing I can tell you that hasn’t been discussed in hundreds of books at this point. It is a dead subject that I can drone on about.”
The dean held up his hand and said “I want to know how you felt about it. All of it. What was the methods you used to make the decisions. How did you feel? The most important event in modern history drops in your lap like an egg salad sandwich. You have to feel something. That is what I want to know. It is your bully pulpit to say what you wish. No restrictions except for classified material. And no using the “F” word.”
“I am not doing it unless I can say ”fuck”. Not happening.” He wasn’t kidding. “To sweeten the deal you can televise it but I have to be able to talk in my normal voice. And I will say fuck.”
The Dean relented and agreed. He had just manipulated the situation to where he could minimize the fallout. Besides: he was tired of people talking shit about him in all these books and articles. He was going to tell them all to go fuck themselves, with a cactus.
On the Saratov. Warp area 13 off the plane of the ecliptic.
The admiral sat and contemplated what they were about to do. They were waiting on a couple more ships before going to warp. He tried to sum it up.
This was a high stakes mission. He had a high stakes strategy. It was brilliant and it was risky. He was about to do something never attempted in real combat and was completely theoretical. They had wargamed it to death and this had honed their protocol. They were going to Net their AI’s. They would calculate global firing solutions using parallel computing. They had 8 AI’s that were going to fight it and this should greatly augment their firepower due to increased efficiency. No matter how they wargamed it the AI’s won. They had it down pat. He felt certain this was the right thing to do but there was also a huge ethical hole in this. For the first time AI’s would determine firing sequence, aiming and execution without human intervention. He had to pause and consider the implications. This was colored by several recent experiences. It was all about Jezz. He still loved Jezz but she scared him. She has never been malevolent, but man was he scared that she could become dangerous. He had created a tiny bit of monster in her for certain. She was a combat AI. She was a hunter killer and as long as she worked for them, she would be fine. If she decided to freelance it, they would be in trouble. All because of this: there was a chunk of predator in her digital DNA and he hoped she could keep it in check.
He had come up with the best rationalization he could. They were going in against one decidedly ill-tempered AI and another AI (the “damsel in distress”) wanting rescue. At least that is what it looked like on the surface. He couldn’t shake the feeling that this was not as clearcut as everyone else thought. Either way It would not be aliens versus humans but AI vs AI. At least that is what he kept telling himself. He wasn’t buying his bullshit either since none of it passed the smell test.
The decision to unleash the AI’s had come from above his paygrade, all the way to the Joint chiefs of staff of the world Navies. Forty-five Space faring nations sat down and hashed it out. He hated the complexity but admitted that it did work fairly well. They wanted the spam in a can home alive and if AI made this happen then so be it. There was one important point: they weren’t on the ships, were they?
As he sat about to enter warp and head out to the clusterfuck in question. The initial reason for all of this was still nagging him. Where was everyone else? He had data that showed an alien drive signature. He was resentful that they were fucking around with all this other shit. He would leave the AI’s in question to sort it out amongst themselves. He wanted no part of what was going on since he was doubtful that there were any good guys on either side of what looked like a standoff. All he wanted to do was find alien life (which they had kind of but it weren’t just quite the right kind.) He wanted something that could look like us maybe a bit . If you squinted. And they would find that hopefully, but they had a shit detail to cross off the bucket list first. The more he looked at this the more it became clear this should be two separate missions. Those AI’s were fighting over a dead world and he knew it. He just knew. He wanted no part of the Hatfield and McCoy bullshit. The real point was to capture as much as they could. This was actually about technology. They even had some freighters on the way for the cleanup and oh BTW come back alive. We will let the AI’s babysit you. May as well send a Voyager probe for all the use the crew was.
He was soon to learn the value of human judgment and that was going to prove a bunch of people wrong, sort of. All because of this: there are some decisions that do not fit into ones and zeroes. Value judgements were critical. That is one thing AI’s couldn’t do yet and it was that way why? Who could say for certain but in his years of interacting with true AI’s for the last 5 years did give him some insight. He was apprehensive to say the least but where was his fear coming from? He always thought that you had to identify the source(s) of any fear. He had it partially figured out, not only was he a bit afraid of Jezz and her friends he was also fearful for Jezz. And this is what he had: a gut feeling. And if that weren’t enough (and by gosh, don’t you think it ought to be?): how was he going to keep Jezz’s precognition a secret? The Admiral went through the computer logs and Jezz had not accessed any information about the disposition of the Galileo. It could be explained away but he was not convinced he could be very convincing. This was something that just did not fit. He could not make it fit, and he would just as soon pretend it did not exist. But it was clear that his AI had some degree of psychic power or something. She was different and he did not know if the other AI’s would be catching whatever it was. If the folks in charge knew the depths of his misgivings, they would be appalled. And the situation they were headed into was not as simple as it looked. He knew this. His questions were simple. Number one: Who were the good guys and who were the bad ones. Number two: could he maintain plausible deniability about Jezz. They were going to have a talk. Just the two of them. He needed some reassurances.
Also, He was trying to figure out a way to crack this and he had an idea. While looking at the menu for the ships mess, he noticed the two columns and he decided to do what he always did with most major decisions. He would make a list of the facts he had and try to run through the various permutations. A pencil and some paper would be adequate, and he even had a ruler so he could make it all professional.
So he made a list of the players Side “A” in orbit and Side ”B “planetside. Side “ A” obviously held the high orbitals. “B” had an extensive force field that would occasionally flicker. He thought that might be something to look into. He had all of the video files from the Galileo and there was one telescope tasked with watching the planetside compound. They had days of footage. He sped it up until the frames were racing by. The force field was visible due to impacts from what he assumed to be dust. This gave it a phosphorescent look. It also made it possible to have visual confirmation if it was up. The shield “failures” occurred on a stable repeated time frame. After doing the math and getting a video analysis program running, he figured it out only after focusing on the Spectro photography. Every 23.29 minutes the shield was apparently offline for 0.07 seconds. It was so brief it was tough for the naked eye to pick up but the spectral signature did.
Looking at the area under shield he could see a row of what appeared to be ships. These were triangular. He could see no evidence of what their primary drives were but it wasn’t the best picture. Things degrade through an atmosphere and distance. No drive nodes. No distribution rings. He had a suspicion, and he suddenly felt nauseated and had this sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach. They were not using Alcubierre’ drives. They were using jump drives of some type. In the raw sensor data was a Gamma spike and a Gravity spike right before the attack. The Galileo probably never saw the vessel that hit them. But the Admiral was a patient man and he had the eye for detail. How they had missed this he did not know but he finally found what he wanted. The ship was identifiable. One sternward scope had several good views of a shape blocking the stars.
The other fact was that there was no warning. No comms traffic but, the recovered buoy made it clear that they knew they were suddenly in trouble since the buoy was released (and in warp) seconds after jettisoning it. Command deck recordings showed the captain getting a proximity alarm and then immediately releasing the buoy. There was no “prepare to be boarded” or “Heave to.”, just MASER beams slicing through the hull. Listening to the conversations on the deck made it clear they were paranoid as they were scanning with their non military grade graviton detector. Seems like it wasn’t paranoia after all.
They would have been blind until the ship was right on top of them. Someone was operating on a hunch and that person was Nico. He was frantic. As first officer he had the conn and did what he could to at least let them know what they were facing. It took some guts to do that. He saw internal video running. It captured Captain Nic’s hand slamming down on the buoy release button before the video cut out. It had to have damaged the Galileo Significantly. He had to override the safeties to get the thing to instantly go to warp. He knew that close to the ship the damage would have been substantial. Nico knew they were doomed.
He leaned back and took a deep breath. The ship in question was triangular in shape. Planetside. This could be some sort of trap or things were not as they superficially seemed or maybe he had found his bad guys. So he went back through the compound footage and there it was a ship moving out of frame. There was only maybe 6 meters of ship but it was clear where it was from. It was clear it was moving. Where had it been for 2 hours plus? If it were going to jump he would think that the image would have arrived at the Galileo after it had been blown apart. That is the whole point of faster than light travel. You could have all these paradoxes and that actually gave him more than a headache. It was a brain ache. Without FTL the tyranny of Einstein held sway. Why were they not there immediately? The Galileo was about 120 light minutes out. Assuming they get there immediately there should be no video. They had taken a detour. This he did not know for sure but also had a bad feeling about. I guess it did not mean much in the grand scheme of things but he did have a hunch. Only problem with that is that hunches don’t win battles unless it is more than a hunch.
He did not have a frame of reference for how a jump drive worked IRL. He had read all the theories. There was a huge amount of research being conducted but there were unpredictable failures resulting in some ships getting cut in half and what not. Just not something compatible with the life of the crew. Destructive testing was also expensive. They had gotten one small ship that was maybe twice the size of an emergency buoy to jump to the orbit of Neptune. What he did not know was how long that took. All he had was some rumor mill shit that he generally did not give two fucks about. He was not into “R and D". And while they could send the damn thing out there what they could not do was get it back the same way. The power requirements were so high that the capacitor banks were charged externally . Putting in a zero-point tap would push the ship size beyond the mass they could manage for the drive they currently had. They were running into problems of scale and those are not so easily rectified. Problems of scale were problems with lubrication. You just had to lube the ship with cash. You had to fuel it with Lots and lots of cash. This was such a priority that every aerospace manufacturer and design firms were plugged into the research institutions. It was a huge effort because of one thing. Warp drive was “too slow”. The boffins were thinking intergalactic travel. They had their sights set on the universe.
To top it all off there was one inescapable problem: You can’t put ten pounds of shit in a five-pound bag.
Due to all of this they were going down an interesting path. All you had to do was fill the magnetic tank with antimatter. Matter antimatter annihilation gave near instantaneous power. It was used in weapons some but only the best militaries would even fool with it. Compared to nuclear warheads Antimatter left no nasty isotopes in orbit of a planet you may be interested in colonizing or defending. Also, you don’t want to poison an uninhabited M-class world in the habitable zone given their relative scarcity.
Finally: containing it is problematic but doable. You can probably pull off the power requirements but there is one downside. You are flying in a bomb. Not just a small bomb. It was a big bomb that will go off if you lose containment. 40 mega tons of TNT will vaporize a ship. There was talk of building a manned vessel but saner heads put the kibosh on that. Besides: no one with any sense would want to crew it.
The answer was obvious to him, and he suspected it was obvious to the researchers. Why not use a singularity? Just dump matter into it and harvest the radiation to charge up and go. He did not know where that research currently stood. He knew there were some successes along these lines and quite surprisingly there had been no major accidents. The problem came with feeding the little monster in a consistent fashion to produce enough power to in turn contain the position of the singularity. This was done with antigravity. Antigrav technology had found it’s way into just about everything, except cell phones. They still broke when you dropped them. The black hole was carried by the ship, but it never changed its axis of rotation. The singularity in this scenario is one hell of a gyroscopic top with fixed axes. Since the jet of X-rays only came “out” along this axis and given that the ship would change attitude constantly it was necessary to have X-ray converters on the entire internal surface of the reaction vessel. The ship moved around the singularity. That made things a lot more complicated and really fucked with power distribution. Since there would be energy jets at the poles of the internal singularity power flow would be from two converters at a time. And since they weren’t 100% efficient you had some heat to deal with. He had read a few initial summaries of the work. You still had to keep containment of the singularity just as with antimatter but an uncontained singularity would put a small hole of about 10 mm as it passed through the ship before evaporating. This was better than being atomized. The problem was heat. Waste heat is just unconverted energy as such there was talk of installing a steam turbine circuit to generate power and to cool the reaction vessel. This would be the use of centuries old technology in a starship since convection does not occur in a vacuum. Trying to radiate enough heat to keep the thing cool would not work. The act of running the turbine also cools the circulating liquid. Trying to radiate heat away in a vacuum took a lot of time so big heatsinks would only go so far. It was simple physics. If you can convert some heat to electricity that is a little less that must be radiated. He bet it was a pain in the ass and was probably not worth the effort, but Fusion reactors did not have the peak power output needed to rip space. You either stored it in cap banks for one big release or you instantaneously generated it. Ken thought that the whole line of inquiry was going to be moot and they would finally give up, build a huge Casimir bank and strap a ship to it.
Which meant one thing. The jump ships in question had to deal with waste heat from whatever power system they used. The only way to get rid of this waste heat was to radiate it into the void. This took time. He now knew what the delay had been. The alien ships had to cool off between jumps. He or she had also taken a circuitous route to get there. This in turn means that they wanted them to see the ship leave the planet. They could have possibly gone there straightaway but they had not done that. They wanted him to know. They must have jumped above the ecliptic and back down into the ecliptic.
This slowed them down.
It also meant that escaping with a jump drive wasn’t that easy. They couldn’t pop in and out of position. If they were in your sights they were yours. He also knew that they would have a brief window where they were detectable before fully entering normal space. All they had to do was detect that energy spike and target it at the right time.
After reading all of the executive summary Jezz had put together he had a lot of questions, and he did not know quite where to begin. He had one thought: time to get everyone together and pick everyone’s brain. He wanted to talk to his chief engineer and every engineer in the fleet. He wanted to get all ships Captains and First Officers to come up with a game plan: What is the best order of battle and why? He wanted to see the nonconventional answers as this was anything but a conventional situation. He kept each team to the size of two: Captain and first officers. They could consult with the crew and had access to any information they could find. He needed options. You never want to run out of options on the field of battle.
He turned to his First Officer “Take us out and form up the fleet. We will jump directly to warp 5. That will keep the transports somewhat close. I want the fleet on shipwide in 10 minutes. I have some tasks to assign. Set the countdown to jump for 3 hours. There may be a few stragglers. Jezz, calculate the route and send me a copy. Sensors. I want you to calibrate for Gamma detection and localization. I will send you the energy signature, now. Look for that and calibrate for that. Any questions? (There were none) Good. Yuri, you have the conn.”
He exited the bridge.
Outbound from Sol. 72 hours after jump.
The Admiral was in the center of the virtual room with 70 or so Captains and first officers arrayed about. The flotilla had topped out at 82 warships as well as smaller craft and support vessels. He had 82 ships he had under command currently. This was the biggest expeditionary force ever fielded by Earth. There was one Mormon ship with them. A frigate This was ironic he thought. It was also a bit much to keep up with. He had read all the preliminary proposals and he was now going through the ones he thought had merit. He was currently discussing Captain Pearls proposal she planned to arrange ships into a cylinder or hoop. The individual ships alternating primary weapons one way or the other. That way anyone jumping into the center was covered as well as the “external” surface. It was really a pretty good plan. It played to their strengths. They could bring weapons to bear quickly since they could not just jump away. He especially liked the network formation It was a nice diamond pattern. He just couldn’t shake it being familiar. She had a great movie playing that demonstrated it quite well.
“This is Guardians of The Galaxy” Ken said. Barely keeping his shit together. He wanted to laugh. Once everyone else started the cat was out of the bag, He did not want to ridicule her plan but this was too much. Bless her heart. It was Guardians of the Galaxy.
“OK everyone settle down lets get back to it. Does that make it a bad plan? It isn’t straight out of the movie either. I do think it has merit but I would prefer it to not be too obvious. Can we do a formation that gives closed fields of fire without looking like it? I think we should go with a spheroid that is as irregular as we can make it. I want the focus to be on full coverage. Actually, Jezz give me a pattern with those criteria.”
What she generated looked like a swarm of bees. When she overlayed the weapons plots the effect was uncanny. It looked very random but was anything but. The coverage was better than any plan he had seen. That settled it for him. They would war game it just that way. It was a bit risky since every ship had to maintain their place in relation to all the other ships. She had even linked in the shield generators from the transports. She had used every resource.
“That was brilliant Jezz.”
“I try Sir. I really do.”
“I know you do.”
The admiral continued “OK I want to go ahead and start moving the fleet into that configuration. We will stay in that all the way to our destination. I want checklists of unique tasks made up. Sensors are going to be the critical piece. I am hopeful we will see them when they jump in, and we can quickly target them if necessary. That brings me to another point. We cannot go in and just start banging away at everything that moves. By now you should be aware that this is not clear cut. We can speculate. And I have done it obsessively. What you need to know is that I am not sure who is good or bad. I have a sneaking suspicion that neither are good or bad. They are neutral. We don’t know if this is a rogue AI or AI’s. We do not know if there were biological life here at any point. There is certainly flor BUT THERE SEESM TO BW NO FAUNA. This world has undergone bombardment in the not too distant past somewhere around fifty year ago give or take. Could a sentient race have been killed off? Who the fuck knows. But our next task is to come up with some possible scenarios. Based on what we have seen I suspect this is a rogue AI. I cannot tell what has happened to them yet, but I suspect we will know more once we get planetside.”
He took a long draw from an Opus X and continued. Rank had its privileges.
“The Vikrant will provide aircover for a Marine expeditionary force to go to the planet’s surface and secure the compound. I have spoken to the Air boss and confirmed the strike package will consist of two squadrons of F-15’s for high cover and 5 Su-34’s to be tasked with strike. We have enough transport to go in one wave with backups to spare. That also leaves us with more than enough reserve forces. I hope we do not have to commit more but I will want another squadron of MiG-29’s or F-15’s in reserve. Keep them hot and on the ramp. I want to deploy as quickly as possible.”
One of the junior officers spoke up “That looks like a good plan.”
“Thank you son for that. It is like getting the compliment of how smart you are from your Marine Commander (He had to give Chuck a hard time. He loved him.)
Everyone at least politely laughed.
“Speaking of mentally challenged little brothers. What you got Chuck?”
Chuck went with it The Admiral would pay later. He had some photos of him waltzing with a large muscular person and he was going to visit scorn on him. All in the name of fun. “We are going to take two battalions. I am going to strip them down a bit and we will be utilizing more heavy weapons teams. I plan to draw more M-60’s and M-203’s. You guys are welcome to join the party since I could use a couple of forward observers. It will be a fun time. Additionally I am not babysitting the press pool this time boys and girls and others. It is potentially a deadly environment and I don’t want their deaths on my hands. Let them die with you fuckers instead. By the way; I have 18 Comanche-4 Helos for CAS.”
“That sounds like all the more reason to send them with you. The herd needs to be thinned anyway.”
Jezz hissed “SIR! You are going to get in trouble Sir.”
“Just a little lighthearted humor don’t be so touchy. Anyway’ what about armor?”
“I have a platoon of Abrams going in with us Sir. More for mobile artillery.”
When you got right down to it it was a very simple plan. Modest forces for planetside. There was enough aircover but not so much to result in fratricide. He had extra firepower at the squad level. He had thought it out. Chuck had his full confidence. He was an Oscar-6 and you did not make O6 by being stupid. He would make General soon and he would be taken from the pointy end of the spear. The spear would be a little less sharp for a while but that was just how it went. Right now, he had the best field commander alive in his corner and he was going to utilize him.
“I know my engineers are logged into this meeting and have been paying attention. What do you guys make of their propulsion system? I have been spouting off and thinking about this for a week and all I got is a bunch of ideas.”
He thought for a moment. Rusty, what do you think.” He had just called out his own engineer. Rusty was his nickname and damned if he could remember his actual one. He knew it was not Russel. “What do you think they are using for power?”
Rusty wanted to cuss him out. He did not like meetings. In his opinion meetings were just excuses to avoid doing any actual work. He could have asked him privately…”Rusty what do you think?”
“Goddammit Sir, they have to be using a singularity. They are not using capacitor banks so they are generating power instantaneously. The alternative is antimatter and we had better hope it is not antimatter since taking them out could be suicidal. Most importantly: I am not a fucking tactician. I am an engineer for fucks sake, and I don’t see why anyone cares what I think about this anyway. But you asked so here it is. We are going to have to assume that it is not antimatter and hope we are right. The thing that would keep me awake is the possibility that our weapons are outranged by the fireballs generated when their antimatter containment fails. That will end us, and the best tactic will be to run like hell. Add to that the fact that the rules of engagement mean we can’t go in guns blazing. What if we need to go in guns blazing? It takes away an option. Never discard even the most ludicrous of options as that may be the one thing that saves your ass.”
“ We do not want to go traipsing in there with our dicks uncovered and this ain’t no tulip picking expedition here ladies. This is potentially a war, and we better acknowledge that. I don’t want to be Debbie downer here but let us be real. Some of us are not coming back from this. Look around boys cause some of your compadres are going to be left behind. This is serious business. This ain’t no rescue mission and we better stop treating it that way. Since you asked, Sir.”
Admiral Alexander had to give him honesty points for that. He was right. “We are going to run this scenario as many times as we can before we arrive. I suspect that there is going to be some mass confusion until we figure out who the baddies are. If I had to make a wager, I would go with our folks in orbit, being less of a threat. We have clear evidence of who attacked our ship, and it weren’t none of them football shaped guys. (He did grow up in the South. Woodruff SC to be precise.) It is the flying Dorito that we have to watch for. My gut tells me we are going to have to smash whatever is running the show down there. That compound with the force field is our primary target.” Furthermore, I just don’t know how the remainder are going to act. Are they under a different AI? Is there more than one AI? We can say there are no life signs from any of the ships in system and that makes me think this is artificial all the way. ”
“ The Galileo was attacked by one of the ships on that Spaceport apron. None of the ships in orbit participated from what we can tell. Also, the Galileo was attacked from outside the ecliptic. They are using some type of jump drive that apparently has to avoid gravity wells. That would explain why the attack occurred outside the system. We can take advantage of the situation though if we cozy up to that gas giant and let them come to us. They can’t just pop in on us that way and we can put the planet behind us or we can peg them up against the planet. We can warp anytime but they can only jump in relatively clear space. In short: We are going to pick the battlefield.”
“First wave will be led by the Atlanta and Saratov. The Havana and The George Washington will be tasked with offense. I want rail slugs loaded and ready to go. The surface strike package will go in from the Vikrant and the Conestoga. Commander Yactine has the battle plan for the surface operation and is handling their own transport duties. We can supply an AC301 Spooky for fire support if needed Commander.” The commander waved it away. He felt he had enough assets.
“I do think we may want to take a chance on something. Since they are having to jump “vertically” out of the system to avoid gravity wells and since we suspect they will do it in two jumps I think we can predict where they have their initial jump point. We can nail them before they even get to the main fleet.”
The admiral pointed to a plot that indicated a tangential course that terminated well above the plane of the ecliptic and one that went directly back into it. It was an “L” shaped course. At least he felt sure they traveled in straight lines and not arcs. It made the most sense but could still be wrong. Poring through the Galileo’s sensor data he could see a spike that barely registered. That also indicated that they took a while between jumps. Once they exited subspace, they would be sitting ducks for at least a few minutes. He was guessing 20 minutes for them to recharge their drive and get ready. They would have to target them when most vulnerable. Given that he was not feeling particularly charitable he decided that annihilation was in order. There were 50 deaths to avenge after all.
“Jezz, what do you think?”
Jezz paused. She had been on good behavior and that had made her overly cautious “I think your basic assumptions are correct, Sir. I think we are dealing with two AI’s. One is on the surface and one is in control of the orbital fleet. Approximately 56% of the orbital ships appear to be functional. They could also be in a powered down mode but looking at the Galileo data and 20 ships look to be fully operational. Weapons appear to be primarily MASER batteries. I can see no evidence of rail guns. Their weaponry may be less impressive, or they may be armed in a fashion we cannot detect. I wouldn’t assume them to be inferior to our ships. If we do that we run the risk of being surprised. I do not like surprises.”
The Admiral had one more question. He was looking more for how she was going to reply, “What is your gut feeling Jez?”
She paused “My gut feeling is that we are dealing with two AI’s. One of them has gone mad.” It was out of her speaker before she could catch herself. He had asked what her gut feeling was. What did he know? She did not have a gut. But, she did have feelings.

2023.06.03 18:11 Ok_Acanthocephala15 Blueface and Jaidyn go on a “date.”

Blueface and Jaidyn go on a “date.”
Make no mistake— considering the fact that Blueface is a man who’s made it abundantly clear that he views a woman’s visible expression of her sexuality as shameful behavior, and as something that subtracts from her value, his behavior in these videos is 100% intended to publicly degrade and humiliate her.
He is a sadistic narcissistic man who gets off on (and feels “powerful” from the act of) emotionally abusing women by embarrassing them.
No woman is an exception to a misogynistic man, no matter what he pretends in order to brainwash women into submitting to his abuse and to absolve himself of responsibility for said abuse.
No matter how well you serve and obey him— he will still disrespect you.
He will simply find more “covert” methods of abusing you and make a little more effort to obscure the ways he demeans you.
It’s not less abuse. It’s less honest abuse.
He finds ways to “indirectly” degrade her, under the guise of “complimenting” her, quite frequently. And remember when he “complimented” her by telling Chrisean online that he prefers a “broke, nobody bitch”? 😃 And how he constantly broadcasts the fact that he makes no effort to co-parent? And brags about the fact that he’s cheated on her for years and she sticks around?
Yeah. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that he’s not genuinely attempting to praise or compliment her in any of these situations. Rather, attempting to demean her, and to brag about subjugating her (misogynistic men are delusional and view sex as a means to subjugate women, as we all know) in a manner that is “masked.”
And his posts about this “date” are no exception.

2023.05.28 03:49 IonicBreezeMachine Freddie as F. R. O.7 (aka Freddie the Frog) (1992) review

A messy and confusing family fantasy James Bond spoof that has clear effort, but lack of structure or direction.
In Medieval France, a young prince named Frederic (Edmund Kingsley) is taught by his father the Magician King (Michal Hordern) various spells and lives a happy life with him. Unbeknownst to Frederic and the King, the King's jealous sister, Messina (Billie Whitelaw), is planning to kill the king and usurp the power of the throne having already arranged for the death of Frederic's mother some year's back using her black magic. Messina disguises herself as a serpent and scares the King's horse and the King dies as a result of her actions. Messina is left as the kingdom's ruler with Frederic as his ward til he comes of age, but Messina uses her magic to transform Frederic into a frog and reveals her true intentions. Frederic is saved by a chance encounter with the Loch Ness monster, Nessie (Phyllis Logan), and Messina is forced to retreat. Sometime later Frederic has grown (now voiced by Ben Kingsley) and is now the French Secret Serivde's top secret agent Freddie aka F. R. O.7. Britain is beset by a series of disappearances of its most famous monuments and with the British Secret Service lacking in manpower, its head Brigadier G (Nigel Hawthorne) requests the French government loan Freddie to them. Freddie is teamed with two other agents, martial artist Daffers (Jenny Agutter) who also has a crush on Freddie, and weapons inventor Scotty (John Sessions). As the group investigate the disappearance of the monuments they come to discover the culprits are a criminal organization known as The Snake which is lead by Freddie's aunt Messina and her husband El Supremo (Brian Blessed) who are bent on taking over Britain using the latent energy hidden within its monuments with grander sights on world domination.
Freddie as F. R. O.7 (aka Freddie the Frog) was one of many animated films released throughout the 90s that tried to capitalize on the revised interest in theatrical animation that began in the 80s with Don Bluth's films An American Tail and Land Before Time and exploded with the likes of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and The Little Mermaid. While many animated Disney films were massively successful such as Aladdin which became the highest grossing film of 1992, non-Disney productions tended to struggle with misfires like Ferngully: The Last Rainforest and An American Tail: Fivel Goes West failing to light any fires at the box office, or foreign animations like Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland, The Princess and the Goblin, or The Magic Voyage primed for international appeal only to fizzle out due to either distribution problems or production issues. South London-based Hollywood Road Films was an independent animation studio whose writeproducedirector Jon Acevski based the film off the bedtime stories he'd tell his child about the adventures his stuffed animal frog toy had and unfortunately that becomes really apparent. While as an animated production it doesn't carry the same weight and polish as contemporary Disney productions or even Amblimation movies of the time like Fivel Goes West or We're Back, it does look a cut above some animated features I've seen, but the script is a mess and there's only so much that the bevy of high profile British talent can bring to get a purse from a Sow's ear.
To describe the plot of Freddie as F. R. O.7 (or Freddie the Frog as it was called in the SGE re-edit in 1995) is akin to describing a fever dream. What starts in a typical "fairy tale kingdom" goes to a jazzy community of anthropomorphic frogs, which in turn goes to a fantastical take on Bond/eurospy tropes and finally to borderline Star Wars type settings that if you were to show individual stretches of this film out of context to someone unfamiliar with it, odds are they wouldn't believe those segments were from the same film. The movie has a very loose narrative and that makes sense considering Acevski told these kinds of adventure stories to his young child about his stuffed frog toy, but that kind of loose narrative is okay when it's being told to a half-asleep child whose age is in the low single digits and not for a theatrical animated film that needs to have a greater sense of cohesion for the audience to grasp onto. With its mixture of spy tropes, fairy tale tropes, and some rather questionable innuendos, double entendres, and some jaw dropping scenes involving (no joke) dancing Klansman and foot soldiers dressed in Nazi chic, it's the kind of movie that's too busy and complicated for kids to follow, but it's also too shallow and non sensical for adults to get engaged with either. Speaking of the dancing Klansman and Nazis, the movie is also a musical and quite a bad one at that. Most of the songs are either bland or forgettable, and when they do happen they're usually dead stops that do absolutely nothing to further the story (what little there is anyway). Evilmania is the song featuring the Klansman and Nazis and outside of the "What!?" factor it's a pretty shapeless song where Billie Whiteclaw isn't even really singing and is more speaking while the song plays with no sense of rhythm or melody.
I will say there's an impressive cast on paper. The movie features an absolute dream cast of some of Britain's best with the likes of Ben Kingsley, Brian Blessed, Jonathan Pryce, Nigel Hawthorne, and a few others and you couldn't ask for a better line-up of talent. Kingsley sounds like he's having fun playing up the French "hon! Hon! Hon!" stereotypical voice which is like a more restrained Pepe le Pew in terms of subtlety, but most of the other members of the cast are just filling types and places. Nigel Hawthorne's character Brigadier G has a particularly bad running gag of constantly getting tangled up in phone cords and inadvertently insulting high ranking government officials or foreign dignitaries and they do this gag four times and it never builds upon it or does anything different with it. Most of the set pieces that aren't related to the monument thefts just feel like "visual noise" that's well animated enough I suppose, but there's no narrative drive pushing us through these set pieces and the emotional core is rather lacking with Messina having killed both of Freddie's parents but Freddie doesn't seem all that engaged with her as an antagonist.
Freddie as F. R. O.7 has remained relatively obscure since its financial and critical failure in 1992 and that's rather unfortunate because while the movie doesn't work, it's utterly fascinating in why it doesn't work. With head scratching creative choices, a story that feels like it began as a mad lib, a cast made up of some of Britain's finest actors, and elements like dancing Nazis and Klansmen odds are you've never seen anything try so hard while falling face first. In an era where many European produced animated features are thinly veiled Shrek knock-offs there's something almost nostalgic about movies like this that serve as a reminder of how much the animation landscape has changed. I can't say it's "good" but you'll remember it. To date the movie hasn't been released on DVD, Blu-ray, or digital storefronts, but the film does survive from the old VHS rips on Youtube. It's only about 79 minutes long so not a terribly costly time investment.

2023.05.27 00:36 blasiadabaddie Does anyone else wonder how much Zeus makes from all their shows considering the costs?

From renting private jets, renting luxury mansions, I think paying for them to fly out to the Caribbean for carnival (Not sure who paid, didn’t watch that part of the episode lmao), paying for luxury vans for transport and according to Stunna Girl offering a big amount, which I’m assuming is around $20,000 to be on the show, it has to be expensive to produce. Also, allegedly gifting them designer handbags too. And then their subscription is only about $7. Natalie said they got 52 million views total across all of Baddies South episodes and if we count all those views as non-repeats, then that’s about 3.7 million views per episode. And say they’ve all paid their subscriptions, that is a few million but I’m unsure if the show is that popular for the math to be correct? Open for correction btw.
Anyway, the show seems very expensive to produce and film. Ignoring all the aesthetic costs (Luxury mansions, private jets, buses) and then think of the Baddies (and other shows) salaries, then also paying the rest of their staff (Although besides security and a few video editors, I don’t think there’s much of a staff). Also, how much the CEO pockets and how much goes back into their shows, I’m really wondering if there’s shady stuff going on behind the scenes that explains all the money being made. Or maybe they really are making millions off of this lmao

2023.05.25 21:35 Ok_Acanthocephala15 Why does Natalie get dragged for her performative blackness more than Slim?

Slim’s father is an AA man (allegedly a lightskinned biracial man, making Slim about 25% black).
Slim has said herself that her father abandoned heher family and she was completely raised by her WHITE mother.
From an early childhood development standpoint— we learn language and develop our pronunciation based off of our early childhood caretaker(s) (the ones who teach us how to speak).
Now I know her motheher family doesn’t speak in that “black”/Southern American accent (unless her mother is the true culprit, and is in fact the one who’s been forcing it for years, so Slim’s language development was modeled on that, but that’s not likely).
Just cause Slim hasn’t “turned it off” in years, apparently, she gets a pass?
I mean as a biracial person I understand having an identity crisis. But at some point we have to try to be our authentic selves. And we definitely shouldn’t be reducing entire cultures to a costume, cause it perpetuates harmful ideas to do so.
Also (especially if she is in fact 75% white, as I’ve heard people say but I’ve never seen photos so I’m not 100% sure) if you’re 50% white or more, and are physically completely white (“looking”), it’s even more strange and questionable.
She doesn’t get perceived as a black woman and therefore doesn’t have the same racially discriminatory experiences as someone who does. So for her to latch on this experience/culture she’s barely on the periphery of (if at all) and base such a significant amount of her external identity around it, is just very disingenuous.
Let’s not even get started on her constant use of the N word. And is it just me or she makes sure to avoid it if she’s on TV? 💀 I’ve only heard her say it on Lives, not while she’s being recorded by a network. (EDIT: apparently she has said it on TV)
EDIT: Any hit dogs who feel deep down that they are also “performing” “blackness” at certain moments, and haven’t been fully honest with themselves about the implications, or inspiration, behind those moments— need not come hollering on my post.
I included some clarifying statements in my responses to comments, in terms of what I meant. It’s a nuanced topic and I admit maybe I didn’t communicate it 100% properly.

2023.05.25 20:16 blasiadabaddie Issues with Baddies West and how they can improve next season (in comparison to BGC) (VERY LONG)

These are just my thoughts. I’m not saying this thinking Zeus is gonna take my ideas onboard but I think most people agree with this.
1) Casting people based on their looks and following: Now, I do not mind calm, laid back cast members like Cat and Lo. I believe they provide a breath of fresh air in the otherwise angry, aggressive, hotheaded environment. Like Meg from BGC9 said, it’s crazy to be in a house where every girl thinks she’s ‘That bitch’. But, the trope gets annoying and as the reunion proved, it’s hard to contain and manage. And as a network, you need to find a way to control your cast members or else you end up with a mess like the reunion.
You see, what they essentially do is cast the same woman ten times, whereas bad girls club would have the boujee girl, the ratchet girl, the alcoholic, the valley girl, the country bumpkin etc. It creates a funny, entertaining environment when you put all these characters together, where you can have entertaining moments without them fighting. Think about one of the least likes seasons of BGC. BGC16. This was the season where the casted the type of women you see on Baddies, and look what happened? It basically ruined the network. The girls were mean, bitchy, but not in the entertaining way. It left the fans with a bad taste in their mouth.
We need some diversity in personalities, which I’ll argue, Baddies South actually had. Razor brought nothing to the table unless she was drunk imo. Biggie had potential until it became obvious she was a people pleaser. Catya, while laid back, could’ve been left out, Stunna didn’t need a buddy, it wasn’t gonna affect her behaviour in any way. They had the looks, they had the ‘Baddies’ aesthetic, but they were all the same essentially. No one stuck out this season.
Secondly, they give the cast members with the most notoriety ‘power’. Tommie Lee was a producer, when she had no business being one, and she basically was out of control at times and did whatever she wanted. Chrisean wasn’t there half the time and brought nothing to the season. Natalie has been annoying the fans since Baddies South, and I won’t be surprised if they make Stunna an EP next season. On BGC, the Producers had the power to break up fights if they felt like it, put.girls on fighting bans, and send home whoever they felt like. How can you do that if half the cast are the Producers? Of course the reunion is gonna be fighting constantly when the cast don’t have respect for the Producers, since they are ones. They barely have any respect for security. If you cast barely known girls, they have more of an incentive to sit down and behave. Tommie didn’t need this opportunity, so she did what she wanted for example. The BGC girls didn’t want to be sent home, the Baddies West Girls didn't care.
Also, on that note, stop bringing back old cast members? I feel Chrisean’s run has ended, Scotty doesn’t bring anything new to the table and lost a lot of the fans respect when she let Natalie bitch her out, and Rollie’s time is up too.
2) HAVE RULES If Stunna had hurled a bottle at another girl on BGC, she would’ve been sent tf home. If DJ Sky kept running up on people at the BGC reunion, she would’ve been sent home. If Tommie attacked security on BGC, she would’ve been sent home. Have rules! This is why you can’t control your own reunion. There are literally no rules. That’s the reason why girls are rounding up people to jump other girls and are getting clubs tear gassed. There are NO RULES. Next time, if you can only run up on someone once at the reunion. Do it more than once and you’re going home. If you’re not there to sit and talk, you won’t be allowed to attend and you will be escorted offstage. Just have some rules in place! I know Zeus thinks we just tune in for the fights, and we do, but there’s a limit. It can’t just be fighting.
It actually creates an entertainment issue. Notice how episodes kept being dragged out? This is because they’d allow girls to fight ten times in one day, have the girls distant from the other cast mates, and then have no content for the next episodes. They only film for a month or so with about 14 episodes. That’s three days per episode. A fight every three days will give you enough content, however because they let all these girls deal with their issues simultaneously, now the fights are dragged out. There were like twenty fights in the trailer, but five of them happened on the same day and were dragged out across three episodes. Where’s the fun in that? It also leads to a lack of storyline. Okay they fight, now they hate each other. What’s next?
We like arguments, we like funny comebacks, we like the build up. Which leads me onto my next and final point…
3) HAVE MORE ACTIVITIES THAN JUST FIGHTING AND CLUBBING. AND BAN PHONES. On BGC, the girls were forced to interact and talk to each other because they had no access to phones and their outside movements were restricted. This gave us a lot of funny moments and helped us fall in love with the girls' personalities. But at Zeus, you can leave whenever you want, you’re called to do a scene with someone instead of it happening naturally, and the fights don’t have any build up, so they’re fighting over little things that seem stupid. Having other things to do besides clubbing and fighting allows space to create a storyline.
Think of Persuasion and Winter. Friends turned enemies because of Winter bullying Kailie. That was their storyline and to see it unfold and build up to the fight was entertaining. What was Stunna and Biggie’s storyline? Biggie kept annoying Stunna about Tommie so she threw a bottle and both of them never got over it? I mean, what is that? And Stunna and Tommie definitely could’ve been built up more. That was basically the final battle that had been building up all season. Maybe show Tommie making phone calls in secret, maybe show Stunna talking to her people about how Tommie might set something up. Maybe they could’ve had Tommie and Stunna on seperate sides and edited to make it seem they and their people were having a staring showdown at the club (which they could’ve because Stunna kept mentioning Tommie’s guard looking at her). Maybe have it be foreshadowed from the start. I don’t know, I’m throwing ideas out here, but fights don’t make the storyline. You have to edit it and hype it up.
I guess because they film and edit these in a rush but BGC would’ve had that shit look like the final battle of WW3. I’m just saying.
Anyway, a little essay, but that’s some of my critiques.

2023.05.23 21:46 Potential_Mastodon98 This was the worst reunion by far

The title speaks for itself. Also why have Stevie j as a host? He didn’t even ask any questions he just sat there and played security…. There was no talking at all during the reunion. I would would rather watch baddies atl reunion then this one. And at least in south they talked for a bit.

2023.05.23 11:29 ElectronicCamel2895 ToS Strategies I Picked Up Or Others Have Part 1

The goal of this post, and the posts of this series is to shed light on strategies that I rarely see practiced, or are practiced minimally when if used more could benefit many matches in the future.
Mayor: It's really the one role you can get away with any lies you've made. However too often do I see Mayors play in ways that act out like "Meme" plays. Y'know the drill, Mayors revealing on the stand or somebody asks for their role and they reveal just to shock players. That's a complete WASTE of a reveal. Reveals should be used in desperation, they'll allow you to flip the switch in just seconds. So before you flip that switch try to pull a few cards out of your sleeves.
My personal go to is claiming Retributionist as Mayor. If anybody cc's chances are they're a real Retri due to their unique status, if things go South and you're voted on you can either reveal or explain your strategy and say you're Mayor if you desire a doc on you. Claiming Veteran and Jailor are also strategies that can be executed. The issue however is Vet and Jailor are roles that simply work best when in the shadows and are easy to confirm without you ccing them (you only need one kill from each to prove that role does exist in the match) so claiming Vet and Jailor for the most part shouldn't be done regularly. Also claiming Vet and Jailor often results in hostile reactions from other roles (Vig's shooting you to somehow confirm themself?? And jailor retaliating by killing you at night instead of revealing to town.) Claiming Vet is really a no go, claiming Jailor not so much. I suppose if you do have the gift of a silver tongue you can probably talk jailor into letting you live. However you will be targeted by evils wanting a Jailor dead. But perhaps it's better for you to die than a jailor.
Buddy you really are shit out of luck when you get converted as Mayor, unless it's late game. Vampires are a clear cut demonstration of the lack of care BMG has for Vampires and for it's game as a whole. All they would have to do is make Mayor die if they're bitten by Vampires (great idea) or simply not allow Mayor to recieve messages (good idea but not great). If people see you voting and notice it doesn't reach the 3 there's gonna be some grumpy townies. So the trick is, if you're gonna vote make sure to vote last right before somebody goes on a stand. The number of votes will still be there but chances are nobody will notice the few frames they're present. You're going to abstain from guilting or innoing if you want to keep up your disguise. If you wan't people to refrain from whispering act like you're bmd. This will discourage whispers and if you spam votes fast enough in chat town likely won't see. Only spam votes once to decrease the chances of them noticing. Honestly your chances are low... but not zero.
Mediums: We've all seen it, fake townie claims medium and they can't post death chat worth shit. It's laughable, but mostly sad. However with just a tad bit more effort Medium claims soon could be trickier to pick out the real ones from the false. Know this, messages from a player start with a name like Giles Corey followed by a colon : and ending off with a space . In total you should have this
Giles Corey:
This is our key to faking medium sucessfully. Using this as your base, copy and paste this in your notes, I recommend three for each dead player. Fill in your typical messages like "mediums say numbers", "you there med?","Sorry no leads". This won't work past day 2/3 so messages should be more complicated fast. Do weird messages it is TOS. Pull anything out your ass. What's amazing about med is that nothing is your fault if you pull it from Deathchat that's just journalism. So make shit up like "I was forged/rbd/witched/trans/bmd" throw town off it doesn't take much from a medium, whenever they question you tell them "it's what the dead said". Now finally onto the art of posting fast as "medium" which is quite straight forward. If you're on mobile you already fucking lost. Copy and paste one message into the chat (don't post), copy a second message and get ready to paste, and if you're a keyboard warrior and really wanna sell your med claim (I don't use this really because first two methods are fast) , paste a third message in your will (with nothing else in your will). Send the first message, paste the second and send, and press the post to chat button in will. Now go into your notes and copy and paste a message in chat without sending and copying a second getting ready to paste that as well. The efficiency behind posting messages is the key to faking medium. Wanna trick a real medium? It'll take more effort but if you got a faction or other players on your side order them to say specific messages and recover them to med.
With this strategy, being a medium may be a daunting task but the truth is it really isn't if you're clever. Recover whispers, or jailor chat, even Vampire Hunter Vampire chat if you got two VH's. Post information that would be damn near unacessible to have as a fake Med. Fake some messages if necessary if you don't have enough in deathchat (players hate silent meds so if it comes down to it lie to STAY ALIVE) Also another thing that I've used recently is posting your will in Deathchat. It is HARD to fake an entire will as a false medium and if the will is long enough and splits in two the fake med will have to split the will into two messages (if they're even talented enough to write somebodies will throw fake messages.) Even if the will is in the graveyard having the dead post their wills and sending it to day chat in the morning will be a very solid alibi due to the difficulty of writing an entire will letter by letter.
Transporter: I've noticed a TS theme with the former two, so I'll just go with another infamous hard role to fake Transporter. Transporter to me almost feels like a role that should be unique for numerous cases that aren't related to this so I won't mention. However with clever plays you might be able to sell your Transporter claim. This claim is really best for Hypno but it is plausible (though more risky) to sell your claim to the town. Did witch make your GF attack your own mafia member? No they didn't, you made them attack the mafia member. Did forger forge somebody as a mafia member? No they didn't you made GF kill a mafia member. Having mafia or "mafia" kills in is a great step to faking transporter. Don't miss a beat and lets say a transporter besides you did kill a mafia member, that's okay say you transported them first with somebody else. Even if they do claim they transed them the only alibi they have is the mafia member in deathchat. Don't forget the classics like transporting faction members, and transporting the dead the night they died. Transporters make things confusing as all hell and often town will often too lose track of what trans is doing. The problem comes in when a high official demands a transportation. Often your shit out of luck if this happens, you can't be rbd, you can't be witched, however you could be "jailed" or "trans" somebody that was jailed. The person unjailed won't know but for our sake luckily the jailed target will recieve a message. So in short, if you're gonna fake Transporter try to make a few friends.
Escort: Strategies have mostly been optimized. Roleblock jailor n1 is a great move really no reason not to do it. I do recommend as well to just say you're escort right at the get go asking who want's to be rbd n1 then saying you're going to rb them. Let your roleblocks be loud and clear. There's no problem with roleblocking Mayors, Mediums, Transporters, Escorts, and Vigs if you got nothing better to do. If there's a ambusher maybe you want to rb Mayor so tp isn't killed off. After you get claims in start targetting silent players. My best advice, if you don't got anybody good to rb don't rb at all. Mafia really isn't disturbed by roleblocks until the later half of the game so really you're just hurting town when you random RB. Get info first then work on roleblocking baddies.

Interest me with other strategies you see rarely executed. Make me the Legendary ToS TricksteStrategist and others. I wanna do the entirety of Mafia or TK/TP next idk.
