Reasons why Elric is more fun to read than Conan

2023.06.09 17:12 Fflewddur_Fflam_ Reasons why Elric is more fun to read than Conan

-Conan is a walking power fantasy with infinite strength and stamina. He's a high-level Skyrim character with maxed out melee skills. Elric is always in terrible physical health and can barely sustain his life. With Elric's blood condition, you'd expect someone like that to be bedridden for life, but no, Elric embarks on epic adventures anyway despite being on death's doorstep every day. Elric's reliance on drugs often adds another layer of tension to the story, because his means of sustenance aren't always available. If he's completely cut off from medication, he's at the mercy of his enemies.
-Conan can brute force his way through most situations, which can be fun to read, but I'd rather just pop in Doom Eternal and do the brute forcing myself! Elric can only use brute force when he is physically well-sustained by souls, drugs or magic. Stealth, wits, and magic serve Elric as much as his sword does, leaving you guessing how Elric may win.
-Conan has no relationship with his god, Crom, because Crom refuses to help people who pray to him. Elric, meanwhile, has a very close partnership with his god Arioch... who is basically Satan. And by "relationship", I mean a series of Faustian bargains which might help Elric win battles, but indebt him to a devil. Elric is also friends with elemental spirits, like the Poseidon-like sea king who offers Elric aid freely, though Elric is usually in situations where only demonic power will help.
-Conan is a very simple dude with a simplistic moral compass. He eats, drinks, slays, and is content. Elric is an extremely conflicted character. His entire race is evil, but, like Drizzt, tries to abandon evil and embrace good, leaving his homeland on a quest for enlightenment. Unlike Drizzt, Elric constantly fails at being good despite his best efforts. Its tragic and interesting to watch Elric try and become good so he can save his empire, only to dig himself deeper into the hole. He basically goes into a Bloody Nine rampage whenever he unsheathes his demonic sword Stormbringer, which has a mind of its own, and tries to impose its own murderous will upon Elric.
-Conan is completely victorious. He never loses, his plot armor is immeasurable, and he is always the moral victor in whatever situation he's in. He is benevolent, he is powerful, and failure is inconceivable to him. Elric is a Shakespearean tragedy and a walking atomic bomb. He's closer to Macbeth or Scarface. Elric's plot armor is thinner, and even when he DOES win, sometimes he'll cause so much destruction (to both his own soul and others') that you'll wonder if he deserved to. Elric's loved ones have little plot armor either; Conan has no home or loved ones to return to, while the entire reason for Elric's quest is for him to save his people from the doom he foresees. Every one of Elric's victories just brings that doom a little bit closer. I have to wonder if Joe Abercrombie has read Elric, because Elric's "victories" often resemble the Bloody Nine's.
-Conan's enemies are kinda meh. He has no rivals who can match him with the sword. No Vergil to his Dante, no Gary Oak to his Ash Ketchum, no Edgeworth to his Phoenix Wright, no Sub Zero to his Scorpion. Elric has his cousin Yyrkoon, who nearly equals Elric in intelligence and fighting prowess, and even gets his own runesword to fight against Elric's own. Later, Elric meets other powerful baddies who actually prove a match for him. His worst enemies, however, may be his best allies: his own devil-god Arioch, his own demon-sword Stormbringer, and his own will to resist his fate, resist the gods, and the impending doom of his crumbling empire.
-Conan's story doesn't really end. Chronologically, "Hour of the Dragon" is his last story, and that just ends with him choosing his queen. We never get to see how his reign over Aquilonia goes after that, due to Howard's tragic suicide. Elric's story DOES have a definitive ending, and goddamn, it is satisfying. One of the most satisfying endings in all of fiction. Though not one of the happiest...
-There's nothing like Elric's relationship with his sword Stormbringer in Conan. Conan is a loner and triumphs by making temporary alliances at best. Elric needs Stormbringer like Gollum needs the One Ring, and their relationship is just as toxic and destructive.
Elric's weaknesses, his self-destructive powers, his moral conflicts, his futile war against fate, his powerful enemies, and the completeness of his his story arc all make him more fun to read than Conan.

2023.06.09 17:09 AzureFr0st91 My Xbox Series X keeps disconnecting me from certain games

So I’ve had my Series X for about 2 years now and there’s been a few games that it just crashes or freezes basically not allowing me to play the game. Those games are Destiny 2, Elden Ring, and Apex, I don’t play on a monitor I just play on a normal tv that I think doesn’t even support 4K but I feel like that shouldn’t be the issue. I’ve restarted my Xbox, hard reset it, deleted those games, gotten my thermal paste replaced, and I still haven’t been able to fix it and it’s really bugging me now so could anyone help?

2023.06.09 16:29 doomsoul909 I think ring placement should change

Alright so I think rlcraft has an issue with how creature rings are handled. All of them are accessible in lost cities(end game) and yet some of them are useless or just fun gimmicks at that point. Goblin ring is a prime example of this, as by that point in the game it does nothing good. Same for fairy ring because the moment you get dragon it’s useless. So I think all the weaker rings(elf, goblin, fae to start) should be rare finds in the over world. like if you could find gobbling ring at the end of a rougelike dungeon, elf ring in lycanite end dungeons in the forests and fae in like villages or something it would be way better. Dragon ring should stay in lost cities, and maybe titan too. I don’t know about specific stuff, I’m not a game designer or anything, but I think a decent Chunk of them need to be accessible in like mid game.

2023.06.09 16:12 Protohack Unyielding Valor: Soloing Shadows.

And amidst the gathering of brave warriors, there stood a gallant figure, a warrior whose valor and confidence were unmatched. With a resolute gaze, he stepped forward and proclaimed, "Let me solo her, for I am forged in the fires of battle, and my spirit knows no bounds."
His name echoed through the lands, whispered in awe by friend and foe alike. The tales of his exploits had spread far and wide, for he had vanquished countless adversaries and emerged victorious from the most treacherous of trials.
Clad in armor adorned with the scars of past triumphs, his sword gleaming with the light of unwavering determination, he exuded an aura of indomitable strength. The very air crackled with anticipation as all eyes turned to behold this formidable warrior.
And the scriptures spoke of him, for it is said, "In the darkest hour, when shadows dance upon the battlefield, a solitary champion shall arise, marked by the hand of destiny. His name shall be whispered in reverence, his prowess unmatched."
With unwavering resolve and an unshakeable faith in his abilities, he declared, "Let me solo her, for I shall face Melania alone, and my name shall be etched in the annals of history as the one who conquered the unconquerable."
His words hung in the air, mingling with the hushed whispers of onlookers, their hopes and fears intertwined. For in this moment, the destiny of the warrior and the fate of Melania converged, and the stage was set for a battle of epic proportions.
In the presence of the gathered warriors, the scriptures resonated anew, guiding their hearts and emboldening their spirits. The verses whispered, "With a heart full of valor and a spirit unwavering, thou shalt strike with the might of a thousand thunders."
With a nod of approval and awe, the other warriors stepped aside, granting him the honor he so boldly claimed. And thus, the solitary warrior set forth, his heart aflame with a burning determination, to face Melania and carve his name into the legends of Elden Ring.
May the divine light shine upon his path, guiding his every strike and shielding him from the darkness that sought to consume him. And may the tale of this mighty warrior's battle against Melania be etched in the annals of time, a testament to courage, skill, and unwavering resolve.
And so, the solitary warrior ventured forth, his steps filled with purpose, his heart resolute. Melania, the formidable foe, awaited him in the heart of the forsaken fortress, surrounded by an aura of malevolence that sent shivers down the spines of all who approached.
As the warrior crossed the threshold into the lair of darkness, the air grew heavy with anticipation. The clash of steel and the crackling of arcane energies filled the chamber, a symphony of battle that echoed through the ages.
Melania, a vision of ethereal beauty veiled in shadows, unleashed her wicked sorceries upon the valiant warrior. Dark tendrils coiled around him, threatening to ensnare his very soul, but he deftly dodged and parried, his movements a testament to his honed skills.
With every strike, the warrior pressed forward, his blade cleaving through the darkness with righteous fury. Melania retaliated with cunning, her illusions twisting reality and testing the limits of the warrior's resolve. But he remained steadfast, his spirit unyielding.
The clash between them intensified, a dance of blades and a clash of wills. The warrior's faith in the divine and his unwavering determination served as his shield, deflecting Melania's onslaught of maleficent powers.
In a decisive moment, when Melania's guard faltered, the warrior seized the opportunity. With a resounding cry, he unleashed a devastating blow, his sword finding its mark, piercing through the veil of darkness and striking true.
As Melania staggered, her powers waning, the warrior summoned his remaining strength, pouring it into a final, decisive assault. With a mighty swing, he delivered the finishing blow, banishing Melania's wicked essence from the realm, restoring peace to the land of Elden Ring.
The chamber fell silent, save for the warrior's labored breaths and the victorious pounding of his heart. The battle was won, and the once-daunting Melania lay defeated before him, a testament to his unwavering resolve and unyielding courage.
With a weary yet triumphant smile, the warrior knew that his name would forever be etched in the annals of Elden Ring. He had faced the unconquerable, stood alone against the forces of darkness, and emerged as a true hero.
And thus, the tale of the solitary warrior who had proclaimed, "Let me solo her," resonated throughout the land, inspiring generations to come. His victory over Melania became a symbol of bravery and the indomitable human spirit, a testament to the power of unwavering faith and the triumph of righteousness.
May his name be forever celebrated, his valor sung in ballads and passed down through the ages, a reminder that in the face of the greatest challenges, there are those who rise, undaunted, to claim victory and bring forth a new dawn of hope.

I've been looking around the Elden Ring Youtube for a while now and I see lots of Youtubers with generally the same content, especially those guides ones.
Among them which is the most informative for clearing/finding the content in the game?

And also is there anyone who has fun stuff to watch on this game or does the Youtube area mostly revolve around completing things in the game?

2023.06.09 15:45 humanbeingahuman is liking colourful things, patterned shirts, and funky jewelry a subversion of masculinity?

context: I'm amab and there's some level of agender-ness and some level of masc (I don't know how much) and that's it. I definitely gel with what I've seen some folks say on this sub about not understanding gender but he/him and they/them pronouns are fine for me so if someone asks "am I a guy?" the response would be "I guess..." but I have a big problem with toxic masculinity and disagree that a bunch of attributes which I do like are coded as masculine or feminine (feels like someone is forcing it to do that, like empathy is something we all need?? being responsible is a good thing, looking after others, but weirdly these are gendered somehow)
anyway, I only started this questioning recently (weeks) but
I still want to present all this in a male way (despite not really understanding gender) and really like my beard (though I've been getting a lot more attention than I'd like from strangers)
Is this sort of thing common? Was this part of some secret plan by my brain to subvert masculinity before I realised something was up? OR am I reading too much into this and it's just coincidental?

2023.06.09 15:37 kavakravata Elden Ring is a horrible game to return to - small rant about quests

I just got back to ER after a 6 month break and I feel SUPER lost. I've forgotten my progression status in all side stories and don't know what to do, nor where I am in the world. Really feeling that the game needs some kind of quest log, maybe like the pin-board found in Outer Wilds with clues if you have played it.
Am I the only one? It doesn't help that the story arches are super complex, especially as a non-native speaker, the English is hard!
Would love some input, what to do - start over?
