Reference books for subject matter: what do you use?

2021.10.19 23:48 Rebootbot Reference books for subject matter: what do you use?

I don't mean the usual reference books on writing such as Garner's Modern American Usage by James Garner or ye olde classic from Strunk and White.
I do mean things like A Dictionary of Celtic Mythology by James MacKillop, Classical Mythology A-Z by Annette Giesecke, The Book of Yokai from Michael Dylan Foster, Dictionary of Northern Mythology by Rudolf Simek, and perhaps my favorite, Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, 20th ed. edited by Susie Dent.
I visited Andre Norton's working library, and she had books on period clothing, weaponry, history, you name it.
What do you use?
For context, I write fantasy fiction for a game, hence the mythology books above, but I'd love to learn what you folks are using in general.

2021.10.19 23:48 jhonathan_Z_star A theory about the guard’s origins

The theory about the guards being selected by choosing the red paper is good but for me there are some details that this theory either doesn’t include or gloss over, like most of them are very sadistic and pretty much evil people, they not only brutality murder the looser without any regret but also said to rape a corpse, joked by calling a death player a zombie and set of a hidden marketing of selling body parts, of course that not everyone player at the squid game was a saint but not everyone would do those horrible things, also they have a good military train with using weapons and physical fighting, not only the triangles, with would be a lot of work to teach this to some random guy and they can’t all be offered that much money that the winner would get so for me they all are simply prisoners and gang members, maybe even from north Korea that were given the chance to be the ones on command over the true prisoners and after the games could go home again or start a new one

2021.10.19 23:48 mich_duj I wish I hadn't done farming!

I had x ONE, then I had the brilliant idea to try Mochi's LP farming, and so I exchanged 1/2 of my ONE for hMochi and started farming the cute couple. Everything nice and well until the price of hMochi goes from 1hMochi = 10 ONE to 1hMochi = 0.1 ONE 🙃. Now I have like 1/3 of x ONE left and a bunch of almost useless hMochi. Guess I'll keep them until the price goes up again (if) and then sell for ONE..
But still, it's frustrating to have played one of my best altcoins like an idiot. Solo staking only from now on.

2021.10.19 23:47 INS_Fang Do evil commanders buff change when changing faction to the good side?

So in a Q&A it was stated that if you change factions next season you keep your commanders. It also says that if you change to the good side from the bad side you keep the evil commanders. To me this is weird because some evil commanders buff evil men and orcs, so would this change if playing in a good faction? Anyone know?

2021.10.19 23:47 Bubbly-Peanut4679 How do your manage your unmanageable workload?

I typically have meetings 7-8 hours of a 9 hour day. So usually 1 or 2 hours “free” to work.
These meetings are actually important/no fluff meetings- we are just extremely lean teams in a major Corp and there is a high expectation for productivity/output. It’s actually encouraged to multitask during meetings.
I don’t work well like that. Sure I can send an email while on a call, but I can’t do my actual work. Results in me having to stay on hours late or get on hours early and race to finish tasks.
It’s so bad with the meetings that even on a rare day if I get 3-4 hours “free” I can barely focus. During my meetings and work I am exhausted and cannot retain too much if I’m not actively speaking.
Any advice?

2021.10.19 23:47 random__guy135 DLC release date theory

I noticed something on ln twitter today and i didnt hear anyone talk about this. Since 25th of february twitter has been posting same content but for different chapters of little nightmares 2.

  1. They post some photos from gameplay
  2. They post about achievements
  3. They post about "childhood fears"
  4. They post fanart
  5. They post soundtrack
  6. They post puzzle
  7. They post about six helping mono
  8. They post about glitching remains
They alredy posted all of this things from chapter 4 and next week they are probably going to do same thing with chapter 5. My theory is that they are doing this as a set up for dlc, and after they finish talking about chapter 5 they will reveal DLC.
It wouldnt make sense if they just posted same content about each chapter for 8 months without reason, and if we consider how its pretty much confirmed that ln2 will have DLC it would make sense that it happens after all this stuff is over
So if my theory is correct DLC trailer or overall DLC will be released after 9-10 weeks what would also make sense since its good marketing choice to reveal game at christmas

I'm autistic, so social queues and stuff come really hard, so I hope redditors are able to help me:) What would you all consider the "essentials" to keep in lind while getting into punk culture? I've been trying to get "full punk" for about a year now, but my local community isnt that active and I dont got anyone to really look up to.
