"It is a disgrace to grow old through sheer carelessness before seeing what manner of man you may become by developing your bodily strength and beauty to their highest limit." – Socrates 

Thief Raid Guides | Snow Crows

 I am the Shadow of the Order of the Black Lotus.  
 
And yet, little more than a revenant shadow of an ancient clan now.  My brotherhood of saboteurs, mage hunters, and mercenary assassins is all but extinct; for all I know, I alone remain of that ancient clan.  We were at once prodigal master artificers, dabblers of  blood magics, and chasers of both the martial and psychic mastery over mind and body.  We grew immensely powerful in our time, but that hubris was also our downfall; many grew jealous of our influence and mysterious ways.  Though without the focus and discipline inherent to adepts of the Order, that jealousy grew to fear - fear which turned to mistrust and finally to outright hatred.  It was hatred enough to marshal armies sufficient to decimate our Monastery and way of life.  Our keeps are inhospitable ruins now, only some few solitary mage-slayers endure to carry on our traditions… if even those few remain.  
 
I am simply a wanderer now; a seeker of greater wisdoms and deeper mysteries, as well as a more-than-occasional enjoyer of earthly delights and pursuer of worldly treasures.  I sojourn where the Four Winds blow, seeking my fortunes and plying my trade as a thief, duelist, and master assassin.  
This is the way, this is what I know, and this is who I am.

The Shadow is a Monk/Rogue multiclass archetype that specializes in stealth, psionic shadow abilities, and martial arts paired with devastating wristblade weaponry, alchemical concoctions and poisons.  Half assassin and half monk, he was trained once as a mage-slayer before the extinction of his Order.  Now merely a rogue adventurer, he is often called upon wherever he wanders to infiltrate sanctums, secure priceless valuables, and even eliminate corrupted magi or tyrant governors as necessary – although he prefers an element of subtlety whenever possible.  


Shadow class skills include Acrobatics (Dex), Athletics (Str), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Deception (Int), Disable Device/Open Lock (Int), Escape Artist (Dex), Forgery (Int), Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (shadow, arcana) (Int), Sleight of Hand (Dex), Stealth (Dex), Use Magic Device (Cha).

HAVOC

 

  • [Shadowstrike] (+DEX):  Draw upon deep wells of shadow magic through daily stretching of 5:00 or more to feint, attacking with one wristblade to create an opening for a devastating strike from the other.  This ability deals one (1) damage per week.
  • [Claw Mastery] (+DEX): Without a doubt the deadliest weapons in the Shadow’s arsenal, wristblades or the katar are the key to his dreadful efficiency.  To keep on top of their lethal game, Shadows train for years, day and night, never forsaking an opportunity to improve their dance of death, so I must complete 15+ hangboard pullups daily for a weekly total of over 110.  Amplifies [Shadowstrike] by one (1) damage.
  • [Six-Sided Slash] (+STR):  A furious dance of six slashing blows, striking so fast and with such lethality that even the most powerful of foes cannot survive the vicious onslaught.  As an advanced technique, I must practice handstands and ring muscle-ups each three (3) times per week.  Completing this goal contributes two (2) damage weekly.
  • [Lashing Tail Kick] (+DEX, CON):  Known as the deadliest finisher technique a martial arts master can employ against a foe, the Lashing Tail Kick requires finesse, insight, and deadly focus even after years of study and practice.  To truly master this offensive strike,  I shall hone my body and mind through three (3) days each of Muay Thai and Kettlebell workouts.  Every workout deals one (1) damage each for a combo of six (6) total damage per week. 

  
MASTERY

 

  • [Awakened Alchemy: Craft Crimson Vial] (+CON):  Drink an alchemical concoction that heals for +2 HP.  Consumes 12 alchemy points, gained through nutritional compliance 6 days per week.
  • [Cloak of Shadows] (+WIS):  Pulling the shadows around him, the Shadow phases into stealth for a moment of magical immunity.  This requires maintaining my minimalism mini-habit (put 2 pieces of clutter away when in a room) and complete a weekly Mini-Quest room cleaning. 
  • [Mirror Image] (+CHA):  Call upon psychic fortitude to summon spectral shades that mimic the Shadow’s attacks to both distract and wither down opponents’ guards, allowing him to expose weaknesses for an effective, merciless strike.  Harnessing this ability requires return-following every commenter and following five (5) new challenges per week.

I've always loved your Nutrition as Alchemy goals. I may have to adopt this way of thinking. Would make my daily protein shake a lot more fun to think of it as an alchemist potion of healing...

Weight:  218.0lbs.

 

It's officially official!  The time is at hand!  A whole new challenge!

 

We're finally coming to the end of this long, strange, twisted, unbelievably trying year - and unfortunately, for a lot of us, things are looking a bit grim.  So many folks are out of work or otherwise economically stressed (myself included, but I remain unphased), are at their wit's end after the trials of the past 10 months of pandemic, or face other major events and/or tribulations of one kind or another.

But we are still standing.

 

I love the house words of House Martell from Game of Thrones, Unbowed. Unbent. Unbroken.  So are we all.  Though COVID-19 has drastically changed our world (and frankly, if we're honest about it, even January doesn't promise much of a change regardless of whether or not those vaccines roll out as planned), but we've survived unprecedented challenges and endured unexpected times.  So I think need to wake up, shake off the frost, and remember what we say to the God of Death... "Not today."

 

And that can be our mantra going into the holiday season.  Abandoning our goals to stress about missing the holidays due to pandemic stress?  "Not today."  Eat everything on the table (or at the store or from delivery) because it's been a tough year?   "Not today."  Skip our workouts because 2020 is almost over and January 2021 is right around the corner for a New Year resolution reboot?  "Not today."  Should we for sake the bonds of fellowship and sit this NF challenge out because it's shorter than we're used to, or there are too many guilds mixed, or you're feeling overwhelmed right now?  "Not today," because those are the perfect reasons to start now and join the rest of us!

Just when I thought I could rest from all things Harry Potter... but that cookbook does look kinda interesting!

 

My go-to for all nerdy cooking is this book, however:

 

An Unexpected Cookbook: The Unofficial Book of Hobbit Cookery:  Amazon.co.uk: Chris-Rachael Oseland: 9780990818809: Books 

 

The pork hand-pies are delicious...

I may not be stretching myself to a narrative anytime soon but definitely here for some Rurik narrative! 

 

I've always loved your Nutrition as Alchemy goals. I may have to adopt this way of thinking. Would make my daily protein shake a lot more fun to think of it as an alchemist potion of healing...

 

Alchemy has always been one of my favorite roleplaying themes, from the Warcraft profession to biotech and stims in SWTOR to just about any iteration of using ingredients to make potions and elixirs.  Obviously Potions was also my favorite Hogwarts class too!  I need to buy a few plastic Erlenmeyer beakers to use for shakes and preworkout vials ;)

Thank you, this was really needed right now

 

It was what I happened to need at the time as well, and as it was writing itself, I felt the need to share.  +1 points to Bard tertiary class  🤣

While Hobbit cuisine is a bit more hearth & home than I usually prefer, my nerdy cookbook library simply wouldn't be complete without it!

 

Any other personal favorites???

Update time! Update time!  Update time!

 

I can't be the only one just the least bit weirded out typing December into their update, right?  We've finally made it to the twelth month of the Year That Won't End™.  At long last.

 

The following bit of today's challenge update shall be titled A Love Poem To My (NEW) Logitech G604 Mouse, and it goes a little something like this... I love my new wireless Logi G604 computer mouse.  My old Logi had finally started down the dreaded path of double-clicks and laggy cursor and simply needed retiring.  It's been a splendid breath of air for my computering lifestyle!  Next will be replacing this OG Logi wireless keyboard with something RGB and sexy.

On the Fitness side of Nerd Fitness, it hasn't been the worky-outest week of workouts so far while we both manage some mileage/wear-and-tear gripes, but we're nailing the important goals on the daily - nutrition and stretching!  Plus I've been using my Alchemy skills to continue transmuting Thanksgiving leftovers into interesting meals.  Today's was homemade BBQ sauce, spinach beneath ham/pulled pork and topped with parmesan cheese all wrapped up in a corn tortilla.  Thanksgiving leftover tacos, if you will.  Since today was a grocery essentials dungeon quest, tomorrow will likely feature @darkfoxx's take on green bean casserole because I'm pretty much addicted to it.

 

And segueing back to the Nerd side of things, I started leveling up my Vulpera Elemental Shaman on Warcraft today.  My foxy little bastard spewing molten magma and sonic-booming lightning bolts has been an interesting departure from the shadowy finesse of my Nightborne Rogue.  And this is why we alternate!  I've definitely been missing the Stealth and Vanish mechanics of my Rogue, but the Shock & Awe of Elemental specialization more than makes up for it.  Plus it keeps me occupied during Lockdown v2.0 downtime.


Well, that's it from me for now.  See y'all on the otherside!

 

Oh, and before I go... here's your weekly dose of #HemsworthWednesday.
