Dungeons, dragons, and summer gaming tarot predictions #3

Last Draws

Okay, so this last tarot prediction entry is running late, but we still have weeks of streams so we’re mostly safe. My life has been in positive upheavals with minor injuries. Sprained wrists, red wine, broken pinky toe, rose incense, rugburn, neat Etsy stuff, and breaking the next toe over. That last one was this morning.

My life has been an Alanis Morissette song as I’ve tried to get these summer stream tarot readings done. No, not that one. It’s “Hand in My Pocket.”

Anyway, here’s the last set of readings. A whopping nine to close this out. If you missed the previous posts, you can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

Eight of Strength, Six of Charisma, Nine of Charisma reversed

Punished Nietzsche asks: Will that rumored Marvel fighting game by Netherrealm studios show up?

Cards drawn: Eight of Strength, Six of Charisma, Nine of Charisma reversed.

The Eight of Strength, like a Belmont at the stairs to Dracula’s throne room, suggests a group of heroes has neared the end of their quest. They’ve grown strong, moving from strength to more strength — like Hard Drive continuing to dunk on Elon Musk.

They’ve done the right things, fought the good fight and a Six of Charisma says they’ve returned the grace and generosity others have shown them with much gratitude. Now the princess must be saved.

But with the goal in reach, a beautiful pirate queen pulls them off-course. She’s hiring, you see. She’s seen them in mortal combat. She’s witnessed their deeds and thinks they would be a great addition to her crew. They agree and forget about the princess since the pirate queen pays better.

The reversed Nine of Charisma can be about getting distracted and materialism, so that tracks.

If a Marvel fighting game was happening, you’d think they’d fight DC heroes. Lots of licensing and copyright issues, though, which is why there’s now a hero named after Gomer Pyle’s catch phrase and Red Sonja doesn’t hang out with Spider-Man anymore.

NetherRealm is probably sticking to Mortal Kombat.

Queen of Charisma, Three of Intelligence, Ace of Intelligence reversed

Sam van der Meer asks: Pikmin 4?

Cards drawn: Queen of Charisma, Three of Intelligence, Ace of Intelligence reversed

The Queen of Charisma welcomes you home to a warm, hearty meal. Pies, fruit, cool ranch potato wedges, mead, coffee… it seems she also has whatever snack or beverage you’d like on-hand.

But the Three of Swords is a woodland nymph at the table and she weeps because those potato wedges and grapes were once her friends. She has memories of planting them, cultivating them, going on adventures with them, and telling them stories at a campfire with her space-dwelling friends Olimar, Minsc, and Boo.

She looks on in horror as the drunken wizard — or reversed Ace of Intelligence — asks for more cool ranch potato wedges and mead before passing out.

Pikmin is on the minds of and in the hearts of many, but it may also be a Diablo Immortal situation. An enjoyable, technically sound pseudo-sequel that goes mobile and then exploits what you love for more money and attention.

Justice, Knight of Strength reversed, Eight of Wisdom

Lawman asks: Metroid Prime 4 and a new F-Zero.


Cygnus Rush also asks about Metroid Prime 4.

Cards drawn: Justice, Knight of Strength reversed, Eight of Wisdom

Justice has arrived on the scene. Long have we waited for news of Metroid Prime 4 and it seems that patience will finally be rewarded. The bounty hunter returns!

But the Knight of Wands tripped up and fell. This may be announced too soon. A delay into spring 2023 may happen and we get a Metroid Prime remaster to tide us over.

Drizzle Duder at the end here, the Eight of Wisdom, knows just as the sun is hard for him to look upon, the truth can hurt and still be beautiful in the end. This is why 5e gave dark elves and kobolds sunglasses as the old, racist light-sensitivity rules were dumb and sucked.

The overall reading says to be patient. Please understand.

As for F-Zero, Drizzy says hold on to hope.

Seven of Intelligence, Eight of Charisma reversed, Judgement

Occams asks: Will my beloved Shadow Hearts ever get a chance to shine in the sun again?

Cards drawn: Seven of Intelligence, Eight of Charisma reversed, Judgement

The Seven of Intelligence is a shifty one. Full of secrets and those secrets have secrets and also lies. And maybe some obfuscation as a treat. If he told us anything it would be to trust no one, him especially. He does look like a plausible Shadow Hearts character, though.

So we’re gonna ask the reversed Eight of Charisma. She’s hit the gym a lot, and pumped lots of iron so she can pound iron and steel better than anyone at the forge. In between her protein shakes we asked her about a new Shadow Hearts and she said if such a thing they’ve kept it under wraps and are waiting until it is perfect, like her secret project, the Sword of Supreme Buffness +10. Or “The Amazon’s Caress,” as she calls it.

Judgement seems to be the only one willing to confirm anything, but he looks like The Spectre and tells us to look within and reflect, for the answers are inside us. That’s actually a very Hierophant thing to say but the Hierophant would also make you study to enrich your spirit. This guy just says he works for the gods but doesn’t pay taxes, so I find that advice suss.

Ace of Charisma, The World, Queen of Intelligence

Seymour asks: Will we hear Uncle Phil (Spencer) or God Howard trot out the phrase “We know you’ve been waiting to hear more on Starfield…”?

Cards drawn: Ace of Charisma, The World, Queen of Intelligence

Familiar faces from our Explosion reading! And though I know this arrives late, I pulled these cards well before the conference.

What you’re asking is definitely going to be something Todd Howard says if the Ace of Charisma is any indication. The World agrees and stands by the dwarven Ace. The Queen of Intelligence has little to add but Starfield will be on Gamepass, which seemed obvious.

She also saw me messing with Dall-E Mini and asked it what Phil Spencer and Todd Howard looked like, so here’s the results.

The Emperor, Three of Charisma, Four of Strength

Vesalius asks: Any word on a new Rocket Jockey or Nightmare Creatures?

Cards drawn: The Emperor, Three of Charisma, Four of Strength

Couldn’t get anything from the cards on Rocket Jockey, though I looked into it. To be fair, they weren’t into the Star Wars pod racing games, either, so rocket-powered demolition pole-dancing was off the table.

So on to Nightmare Creatures.

A new adventure for Nadia and Ignatius? The Emperor thinks this is an ambitious choice, but the Emperor may or may not be Activision since they were the original publisher. A monkey’s paw situation given they also sit on things like Tenchu. The authority of the Emperor isn’t always a great thing.

But the bard on the Three of Charisma sings of an opportunity for roguish critical hits! He also is a Dark Souls fan and gushes that From Software could do Nightmare Creatures justice! But every FromSoft fan says that about anything, even Burger Time.

Four of Strength, being another teamwork card, chimes in as FromSoft fanboys, too. They are now going to consider and advocate FromSoft for Nightmare Creatures and also Burger Time.

Nightmare pickles and ketchup await.

The Star reversed, The High Priestess, King of Strength reversed

Welshmetalhippy asks: Why is Bayonetta 3 not here already?????

Cards drawn: The Star reversed, The High Priestess, King of Strength reversed

The reversed Star responds, “Why don’t you ask your mom?” Then it blocks you on Twitter.

The High Priestess looks at you with serenity and calmly tells you to ask your mother. Then she says to “flock off.”

The reversed King of Strength sits dejected in the dark in front of an astral projection of some fit drow ladies modeling bathing suits as he sips on a mug of cheap beer.

Reminds me of Dad after the divorce, actually.

You want to ask the king about Bayonetta 3 but he narrows his eyes and you know you should just go ask your mom.

Death reversed, Ten of Strength, Six of Charisma

Muersault asks: How can NFTs be real if our eyes aren’t real?

Cards drawn: Death reversed, Ten of Strength, Six of Charisma

An inverted Death card speaks of fear and an inability to accept things as they are. If sight orbs were not a thing, how would a beholder be a thing? If that demon wasn’t real, how did you feel its fire? Eyes are real and so are NFTs, it’s just eyes are not a scam.

Advertisement

NFTs annoy like imps on a dwarf’s back. They exist, but we don’t like NFTs.

A reverse Six of Charisma is about greed, being taken advantage of, and sowing anxiety and doubt. It’s about the FOMO hustlers out to trick you into buying a lethargic monkey they want nothing to do with. Unless you’re Seth Green, then you will buy your stolen apathy orangutan back for $300k.

Tarot cards are a thought exercise or storytelling device at the very least, even if you don’t buy into the divination side of it. And you get neat cards to collect! Professional wrestling is scripted, but the athleticism is real as is some of the pain — it’s just the outcome is fake.

NFTs are real, but so are baseball cards. At least you can wipe your ass with baseball cards without right-clicking. I use Curt Schilling if I’m running low on TP.

Eight of Intelligence, The Magician reversed, The Hermit reversed

Robo Panda Z asks: Will Tactics Ogre: Reborn be a reboot, a new title, or an eldritch abomination?

Cards drawn: Eight of Intelligence, The Magician reversed, The Hermit reversed

The Eight of Intelligence suggests feelings of confinement, like when you have pissed off your spider goddess and you’re now doing your best impression of The Hanged Man while you’re trapped in her web — but you’re still the Eight of Intelligence.

Reboots can be confining, too. Instead of finding new potential, you’re sometimes stuck starting over or catching newcomers up. The Magician turned upside down doesn’t care much for that, he aches to do something new or different.

But reversed Hermit feels it has been so, so long. He’d take anything. Long has he waited for a Tactics Ogre: Bicycle Race/Fat Bottomed Girls, Tactics Ogre: Bohemian Rhapsody, or even Tactics Ogre: Under Pressure! There hasn’t been a proper entry since the Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together remake!

There just aren’t many franchises that reference Queen. Holographic Freddie Mercury needs his tribute!

Anyway, that’s it for this year. Or is it? I guess we’ll see what the cards have to say…

Ireland Baldwin Revealed Her Abortion Experience In A TikTok Where She Also Talked About Being Raped As A Teenager

“It’s your life, it’s your choice.”

This story contains discussions of rape and sexual assault.

In a TikTok captioned “I’m here for you,” the model and actor revealed that she was raped as a teenager, and that she also had an abortion later on in her life.


“I’m not here to tell this story today,” she said, “but I was raped when I was a teenager, and I was completely unconscious when it happened, and it changed the course of the rest of my life.”

Ireland says she didn’t tell anyone about the incident “for years” except a nurse who treated her after it occurred, and that being raped continued to affect her life for years afterwards.

“Seeing so many other brave women share their stories, got me thinking what my life would have been like if I had become pregnant,” Ireland explained, “and if I had to raise a baby during everything I was going through at the time.”

“Mind you, I have medical resources, money, and support that a lot of women do not have access to. It would have simply been traumatizing and impossible.”

Ireland also shared that, later in her life, she did become pregnant and chose to get an abortion.

“At that point in time, I would say we were very unhappy together,” Ireland said about the relationship she was in when she got pregnant. “And he made it clear that he never wanted kids or marriage. He barely wanted to be in a serious relationship.”

“I chose to get an abortion because I know exactly what it felt like to be born between two people who hated each other.”

“Could I have had that baby and put that baby up for adoption? Maybe. Maybe not. But choosing to raise a baby without my own financial security, without a loving and supportive partner, that wasn’t gonna work for me.”

“I chose me, and I would choose me again. It’s your life, it’s your choice.”

Kanye West Joked About His Divorce From Kim Kardashian During A Surprise BET Awards Appearance And Said He Wanted To Declare Himself “Legally Dead” Following Their Messy Feud

The rapper took to the stage to honor Sean “Diddy” Combs at the BET Awards on Sunday, making reference to Kim for the first time since their public dispute earlier this year.

Kanye West looks to be making a return to the public eye.

If you’re a fan of Ye’s, you’ll know that he recently took a step back from the limelight after his split from Kim Kardashian hit a major rough patch.

After filing for divorce fairly amicably back in February 2021, Kim and Ye’s breakup took a messy turn in November, around the time that things started getting serious between Kim and her current boyfriend, Pete Davidson.


Paul Morigi / Getty Images

Of course, in light of Kim’s budding romance with Pete, this made for quite the awkward situation, and as a result, Ye wound up taking his frustrations to social media.

Starting in February and posting regularly until mid-March, Ye harassed Kim and Pete on Instagram, sharing their private messages and even encouraging his fans to yell at them in public.

Ye’s constant posts sparked major concern among his followers, with many accusing the rapper of exhibiting abusive behavior toward Kim and Pete. And in March, his Instagram account was suspended for 24 hours after he violated the platform’s harassment policies.

Flash forward to today, and Ye is yet to make a full return to the public eye, having only been spotted on the occasional public outing.

Interestingly, reports in the aftermath of their feud claimed that the Yeezy founder was actively seeking “behavioral” treatment, in order “to be a better human and a better dad.”

Taking to the stage to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to his longtime friend Sean “Diddy” Combs, the Donda rapper — whose face was completely covered by a black mask, hat, and sunglasses — was met with loud applause from the crowd.

“How do we crown our kings? How do we appreciate our kings?” his speech began, before going on to praise Diddy’s work in the music industry.

“To see Puff in real life at the ‘Missing You’ video, just like me tapping free like a little kid — I just need to meet this man. This is my favorite artist,” he said, sounding noticeably upbeat.

“You see I’m saying ‘favorite artist,’” he clarified. “Everything — not specifically production, the drip. Back then there was so many rules to hip-hop, and he broke all of them.”


Paras Griffin / Getty Images for BET

Reflecting on what he learned from Diddy in his own career, Ye even made reference to his failed marriage to Kim, sparking mixed reactions from the crowd.

“He inspired so many of my choices. So many of my life choices. My wife choices,” he said as the audience erupted into noise.

“And here we are,” he added with a laugh. “Thanks for that, Puff.”


Leon Bennett / Getty Images for BET

What’s more, Ye also appeared to corroborate reports that he wanted to take “a year off” in the wake of his public feud with Kim, confirming in his speech that he recently took “a little hiatus.”


Brad Barket / Getty Images for Fast Company

“I said, ‘I want to just declare myself legally dead for a year,’” he told the audience, seemingly referring to his absence since being banned from Instagram. “Nobody messin’ me. You know, I just want to be off the grid.”


Paras Griffin / Getty Images for BET

But, despite his hopes of keeping a low profile, Ye seemed to suggest that the opportunity to honor Diddy was reason enough to return to the public eye.


Jeff Kravitz / FilmMagic

“Puff is pretty persistent,” he explained. “Any of us in this room, if Puff ever need us, we need to jump and be there. This man has been through and survived a lot of stuff. Broke down a lot of doors so we could be standing. I know for me, that I could be here today.”

Aaron J. Thornton / Getty Images for BET

He finished the emotional speech by telling Diddy in the audience: “If I never told you, I love you. You’re my brother.”


Kevin Winter / Getty Images

So, in light of his absence from the spotlight, fans were certainly glad to see Ye sounding so positive, with this marking his first awards show appearance since he pulled out of Coachella in April and had his Grammys performance scrapped in the same month due to “concerning online behavior.”


Angela Weiss / AFP via Getty Images

The speech is also the first time that Ye has made reference to Kim since they came to blows on Instagram, and coincides with reports that the exes are currently working on rebuilding their relationship as co-parents.


Roy Rochlin / Getty Images

In fact, just over a week ago, Kim gave her ex a rare shoutout too, praising him for being the “best dad” to their four kids in a sweet Father’s Day tribute.


Handout / Getty Images

Well, if Ye’s joke about their failed marriage is any indication, it seems like things might finally be looking a little more friendly between Kimye as they navigate the final stages of their split.
