All of the Law, None of the Order (A Sparrow-Psych Challenge)
WorldSparrow posted a topic in RangersPsych: Fake Psychic, Real Detectives So, the cops think I am a psychic detective, and now I am investigating a kidnapping! Join me in my memory focused challenge as I prepare for the next step in my 'Citizen-Soldier' quest line. Thank you to those who have already volunteered for a more hands-on place in this challenge. To others who want to have some fun, we have a weekly PvP challenge called a Kim's Game prepared as well. Come on! Put some clothing on, it'll be fun! Memory Goals: Each week I will have an outline or an example of what information I need to memorize. The subject matter will involve information for my possible participation in the Army's most difficult school, Ranger School! It is not confirmed that I will be going yet, but it is likely so I need to prepare. Each week I will post a link to a document containing the information I am learning. My partner for that week will then test me on the information. This can be done through a skype call or though a posted video, at the partner's discretion. The other thing I need from my partners is a decision if they want to have me test them on something they have been wanting to learn! So let me know partners. Partners in Crime: Week zero: Yasha92 Test Method: ? Materials: The Ranger Creed Partner's Material: ? Week one: MiaulinTheCat Test Method: ? Materials: TBD Partner's Material: ? Penalty: ? Week two: Wild Wolf Test Method: ? Materials: TBD Partner's Material: ? Penalty: ? Week three: Artemis Fernweh Test Method: ? Materials: TBD Partner's Material: ? Penalty: ? Week four: Broba Fett Test Method: ? Materials: TBD Partner's Material: ? Penalty: ? Penalty: I want you all to decide what penalty I am required for each test, so let me know! Kim's Game PvP: Situation awareness is something that is imperative to life, but few people actually practice. I myself struggle with it, as I tend to get lost in my own thoughts and become oblivious to the world around me. Kim's Game is a perfect tool for increasing mindfulness, attentiveness, and short term memory. Here is how it is played. A person is showed a number of objects for a short amount of time. That person then has to remember as much detail about each item as possible and list them! The game has been used in Sniper School, by government agencies, and even the boy/girl scouts, but it originated in an old book! 'Kim' is one of the oldest spy novels in the world, published in 1901 about an Irish orphan in India being trained to be a spy. So who is ready to play? Obviously it will be easy to cheat doing it over the internet like this - so I am taking you all on your word! If you don't know what an object is, just describe it as best as you can. It's very similar to the 'how many hats' game that Shawn has to play as a child, and may even be where the writers got the idea! Ready? The first video will be posted soon! Other Goals: As usual, I will be tracking my daily chores (Sparrow's Checklist for Domestic Bliss); Behavior 'Below the Line' (Behaviors Unbecoming of a Sparrow); and work toward improving my odds for overall quest achievement (Skill Tree) I will also attempt to do three self-improvement tasks a day in order to balance the three elements of existence, the body (The Warrior), the mind (The Wizard), and the soul (The Sage). Lastly, I will work on the completion of my Quests (Sparrow's Campaign) through my method of 'The Big Three' which is where I select three to-do items that I am required to do each day. The Penalties: Three failures of any of the above will result in a book sold/donated from my collection. The Rewards: Allowed time to work on personal projects. I am so excited! This is going to be fun. I'm like a kid in a candy store!
Wild Wolf: WildlandsHello and welcome back to another installment of Wolfie's Co-Op Adventures. If you missed the last one, well, that sucks for you. BUT, the good news is, is I still got signups going for this one and it's rumored to be as good if not better this time around! I'm adding in bad guys..PvP...and my challenge wouldn't be complete without some kickass writing involving gun fights, bravado and just plain badrangerassery stamped all over it! A little about me before we get into the nitty gritty. My name is Wild Wolf, but I prefer Wolf or Wolfie. I'm married to the love of my life and we have 3 little boys together, my oldest turning 6 today! Some have described me as the songbird of my generation...but that's neither here nor there. I love to laugh, live and have fun. Right now, I'm still nursing a shoulder injury but every day I strengthen it and slowly but surely I feel I'm getting to where I need to be. 2016 is my year of patience. With my shoulder, with my hair (cuz I'm growing it out #hairgame), with my job, with a new car...lots of things, really. I think the important thing, is that I recognize this is that year and I'm harnessing it instead of running from it. I'm also a people pleaser and last challenge...actually, my Deadpool challenge was where things changed for me. Mentally anyways. (Yeah, I went crazy, so sue me!) And I broke out of a funk within myself. I felt more comfortable here on NF then I ever have when I unleashed the vulgar swag of Wade Wilson, lol. Then, I stepped it up with my redeux challenge of The Division. That thing took an unexpected turn that I was not prepared for, but dammit if I didn't love the monster I'd created! The write-ups ending up being the smoothest, easiest writing I've done to date and I would love to continue this momentum. If you missed the epic finale, check it out on my previous challenge! This is where Wildlands comes in. It's another Tom Clancy game like The Division and I'm soooooooooo stoked for it (even though it'll prolly release around this time NEXT YEAR!) Here's the badass trailer for the game: Yeah, that trailer still turns me on.. The song is Friction by Imagine Dragons. I've been jamming to it a lot lately. Anyways, that it what this challenge will be based off of. I will be taking part of the role of Captain Wild Wolf and will be leading squadrons of Ghost (elite US Special Force team) against the Santa Blanca Mexican Drug Cartel. Along the way, I'll have to deal with the Unidad, a military force hired by the corrupted Bolivian government to protect it's dirty interest and also don't get along very well with the Cartel. I will also will be aided by the local Rebel's in my fight to disrupt the drug war going on. Bolivia, a few years from now: this beautiful South American country has become the largest cocaine producer in the world. The influential and vicious Santa Blanca drug cartel has turned the country into a narco-state, leading to lawlessness, fear, injustice, and violence. The cartel is on track to becoming a major underworld power and global threat. An all-out war is not the answer. A surgical, stealthy, lethal approach is the only way to stop the disease at its source. The Ghosts, an elite US Special Forces team, are sent behind enemy lines to wreak havoc, destabilize, and eventually break the alliance between the cartel and the corrupted government. Facing an almighty enemy in a massive and hostile environment, the Ghosts will need to make critical moral choices and engage in tough battles to complete their mission – their grittiest and most dangerous operation to date. Co-op is essential for survival, so here are the rules of the challenge: RULES & SIGN UP SHEET I will be giving out assignments 2x a week. Each faction will get their own assignment. This will be based off point total's with the completion of assignments adding points to that factions "point bucket". Whomever has the highest amount of points each week will essentially "win" that week, either by escaping with the drugs if you're the Cartel or thwarting the Cartel's plan and capturing them and the drugs if you're apart of Team Ghost Wolfpack...or something to that effect. What made the last challenge so fun for me is how organic things played out. I would like that trend to continue. *WARNING* If there is a tie, the teams will face off in a PvP WOD that will challenge everyone so we have a clear and determined winner. The assignments will range from daily WOD's to miles covered with a ruck to eating a clean meal that evening. Maybe even bring back 5 min cold showers, who knows how crazy things will get Teams will range from 3-6 depending on the match ups and the numbers, but they will work together to defeat their opponent using various battle techniques. As leader of the Ghost Wolfpack, I don't plan on taking it easy on you Drug Cartel pole smokers..and I expect the same in return! The MOST IMPORTANT RULE...HAVE FUN. PLEASE! For my sake and your own, lol. At the end of each week, I will take the weekend to work on the weekly write-up and post it (hopefully) before the weekend ends! Last challenge I didn't really have a challenge write-up. Besides my regular shoulder PT that I've been handling, I didn't really keep up with my goals. I stopped tracking The Perfect Agent as well. So, I want to be more organized going into this challenge and actually work on my goals. #1- Rucking I'm getting a rather sweet FDE color 5.11 Rush 24 bag in the mail very soon and this means it's time to get back into rucking! I also bought a nice yoga block for weight support and a swanky Texas flag patch to go my bag once I get it in. I would like to thank my lovely wife for getting me this. You're the best baby! I want to ruck at least 2x a week. I'll also be bringing my bag to work, weight and all, and start using that on my daily walks around the building. #2- Foraging Get back on this kick and find some stuff to forage. I started out good with this but then dropped the ball. I only managed to get out to the trails once I think during the last challenge and I want to change that. This is an essential survival skill IMO and I want to really work on setting up proper knowledge of plants and fruit that's good to forage. Study up on foraging 2x a week. Hit the trails 1x a week. #3- Agressive Shoulder Rehab Of all things...I hurt my shoulder playing Quidditch lol. I have a type 2 AC joint separation that's been bothering me for a couple months now. I have full ROM and really good mobility but it still hurts from time to time. It's nothing that requires surgery but I'm at the stage where the muscles around my shoulder need to be strengthened so that's what I'm doing. Spend 15 min on shoulder rehab and work Unbreakable Shoulders from GMB into your routine 2x a week. #4- Co-Op Beauty I seem to have started a wonderful trend with the co-op challenges going on this time around. I love it!! I want to be involved! So the goal is to keep up with everyone else's challenges as well as my own. Other News: My oldest turns 6 yrs old today!!! Damn they grow up way too fast My 6 yr anniversary is coming up May 14th and I'm getting some help from @T2sarahconnor to make that day one to remember! We're also going out to this restaurant called LAW. Yum, can't wait for that fine Texas cuisine! And, I found out Blink 182 will be here at the end of July, so I'm getting her tickets cuz that's her favorite band! WOOT WOOT! #EarningBrowniePoints Our lease is up at the beginning of July so we'll be doing some apartment/house shopping this month *BONUS GOAL* We have two gun ranges close to us and I want to visit each one at least once this challenge. Both are gun clubs as well, so depending on which one we like better, Heather and I can become members! I want to shoot an M1A if available and then mess around with any AR/AK platform they got. The Colt 6920 AR is another semi-auto rifle platform I'm looking to buy. And that pretty much sums things up, so let's get this party started! SIGNUP SHEET Wolf
