    rn in terms of story (bc for me the gameplay is fairly similar across entries) my list of far cry games ive played is.... far cry 5 > far cry 4 > far cry 6 ...................................................................................... 

    #ooc #when im fully done fc6 i will go into more detail but #rn i think fc5 did the best job of making rlly good impactful villains across the board bc theyre ALL memorable #and fc4 was fine in terms of minor villains but pagan stands out SO much it kinda makes up for the weaker secondary antagonists #but fc6 so far... has done basically NOTHING with the secondary villains (marquessa + jose + benitez + mckay)........ #im sorry fc6 but u didnt give giancarlo enough scenes and not enough scenes with the player character to make up for the lackluster sidebros

    You wanna know why I'm choosing positivity lately? Because fuck you, that's why. Rather than lose my shit I've become aggressively optimistic.

    Ending a Prayer to The Diĝirene

    Mesopotamian Polytheism

    A lot of people look for openings and endings to prayers, maybe because its nice to have a formula, maybe because of the ingrained idea of "amen", or just a desire to say "bye!" but in a formal way.

    There is no codified way to end Mesopotamian prayers. Some have no uniform endings or the endings are missing from the tablet. However there is a common theme: expressing how nice it was to praise them / pray to them. This shows up in various types of Sunerian literature.

    Here are some examples:

    "In holy songs musicians sing of him —the dearly cherished one, the god, the man of the hills, renowned everywhere — and promote his name gloriously. Martu, son of An, it is sweet to praise you! ( in lines 49-59; a shirgida)
    "Prominent one whose words are well established, whose command and support are things which are immutable, whose utterances take precedence, whose plans are firm words, Great Mountain, father Enlil, your praise is sublime!" (in lines 167-171; ?)
    "I am the lady who sits upon terrifying divine powers! I am she who is endowed from holy heaven with the office of incantation priestess! I am she who withdraws the first fruits from the palace, I am she who has received the divine powers from the most elevated dais. I am mighty, I am the forceful one of An and Urac, I am the great lady of the gods! My terror is fearsome as it weighs on the Land; my terrifying splendour burdens all the foreign lands. No man anticipates my commands. I am the lady, I am heroic, I am youthful, I am the powerful one of the Land! The heavens fold themselves in my presence like a mourning garment; the earth is more and more submerged as if by the water of a flood when I am present. I am the neck-stock of the Land which grips mankind. I am she who hastens like a north wind storm into the midst of the people! I am she who hears prayer and pleading!" Praise be to holy Nininsina." (In lines 121-135; a shirgida)
    "You are profoundly intelligent, one who knows everything. You are the shining light which fills the exalted sanctuary. You are she who ...... by Enlil. [...] You are most apt for the holy susbu rites and lustration rites. Ninimma of the holy divine plans, it is sweet to praise you!" (In segment B lines 1-11)

    "The just woman dwelling among the great divine powers is the lady unsurpassed in ladyship! Sadarnuna, the just woman of far-reaching and just counsel, is the beloved of An! The great authority, the majestic quay, made fitting for the Ec-mah by Enul and Ninul, the just woman has erected her majestic dais in the courtyard of Enlil. As she stands in the holy storehouse Ec-mah, [...] she conveys terrifying awesomeness. The beloved offspring of An the king, as she is worthy of the Pada-nunus. Sadarnuna, praising you is sweet." (I chopped this together to make sense because there was a lot of fragmentation Ec-mah and Pada-nunus are both temple names. Lines from here.)
    "Hero who bears all the great terrifying divine powers, who covers the earth with awesome splendour like a mighty storm -- An be praised for your very great eminence! Your own father has declared your fame: immensely complex lord who has taken his seat, who perfects the divine powers, lion of the far distance, lion standing by, leader of the assembly, Nuska, it is sweet to praise you." (In lines 11-24)
    They proclaim your magnificence; you are the lady ....... An and Enlil have determined a great destiny for you throughout the entire universe. They have bestowed upon you ladyship in the gu-ena. Being fitted for ladyship, you determine the destiny of noble ladies. Mistress, you are magnificent, you are great! Inana, you are magnificent, you are great! My lady, your magnificence is resplendent. May your heart be restored for my sake! Your great deeds are unparallelled, your magnificence is praised! Young woman, Inana, your praise is sweet! (in Lines 254-271)
    "Holy Ereškigal-- sweet is your praise. (Ending of Inana's Descent Myth)

    These are a just a few of numerous examples. But not all hymns, myths, prayers end with something formulaic so don't think that an ending is required.

    I tend to use "Praising you is sweet" or "sweet is your praise"

    I also use "Glory to The Gods" a lot but I don't know where I picked that up

    Hey hey pagans who work with Welsh deities, read the Mabinogion or fuck off. Arianrhod is not a moon goddess I’m going to attack you, Robert Graves and his book The White Goddess are not a reliable source of information on Welsh mythology

    Getting back into your Paganism & Spirituality is #1629302&3740301 billion on finally realizing your childhood favorite songs were literally the embodiment of you then- in that moment through the growth of your journey that was twisted soon realizing that what you wanted from it is clearer now. Its different for all… and it speaks a lot of yourself, and I’d totally look into it but then again I’m ✨🍃💨😶‍🌫️✨ Anyways. These are/was/is mine if that makes sense anyways I think it’s a cool snapshot overall to see the music that influenced my life. Ya’ll can try it too. Maybe not with the added high. (I’m not doing much as there’s a fuck ton but these came first to mind. Mainly because the only good my mother did was expose me to different types of music.)

    I love getting lost in the woods.

    For the longest time I've wanted to live near the woods, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Close to Mother Nature but not too rural. Well, I can't believe I have that right now!

    Lockdown was actually great in terms of allowing my partner and I to explore our local area. Imagine my surprise to find that we had an Enchanted Forest within walking distance!

    Happy Witching
