Photos from consecration ritual of Russia's new Martian Monastery :^) for the Orthodox church some months ago.
I quite like it, from purely aesthetic pov, ignoring how much did it cost, who paid for it, which oligarchs embezzled thanks to it, etc. The preponderance of the military green and similar dark tones give it a very sober and grave mood. The nave is very ample. I imagine soldiers in standing formation. Photos look spectacular, almost cinematographic, but most likely they are "retouched".

Cathedral and general architecture thread I guess

>His work was the original cover of the altar in the Basilica of Agony
Oh, this can be misunderstood. I meant another work of his. See the grayscale photo.
Btw the Hungarian Coat of Arms can be seen on the mosaic of Pietro D'Achiardi (whose work was used posthumously, I think it was a painting originally) and apparently this led to the confusion that Hungarians generally (well those who know about this anything) think it is the work of Muzsinszki's.

I want to buy some land in the country and build a house with strong walls and good vantage points and fields of fire. Preferably with numerous rooms and maids. Also it has to be able to provide power for itself, to have blacksmithing facilities and a metal lathe with maids that know how to use these things. Preferably the house will be located close to strategic resources but otherwise I will just have to keep in mind where they are for later. Also it has to have horses and cows and be close to a forest. Also an armoury filled with weapons.

Once society collapses I will arm the maids and we will search for survivors to press-gang into the service my duchy, the maids will act as officers and the serfs will be allocated to them. One maid is going to have to be responsible for having her peasants cut down the forest to build houses and such for the city that will be built around my house. Other maids will be given military commands and patrol my area for intruders, if food production allows they will be press-ganged otherwise they will be shot. From there they will be send to secure strategic resource and build outposts at these locations and to secure lines of communication to the capital. After the strategic locations are secured farming outposts will be built to increase food production and thus potential population, all the while the outposts will extend my realm. I don't think we have fuel nearby so I have to rely horses for cavalry and logistics. The metal working facilities will be important for producing and maintaining arms, potassium and other resources will need to be secured to produce gunpowder(or black powder if things are desperate), the forest will be important for paper production as well(to issue orders with and to record things). Metal working facilities will also be needed to produce coins, the coins will be backed by the grain reserves of the state and will become the only reliable currency(as no sate will exist to back the currencies of other realms). Thus my currency will be the dominant currency of the world and all trade will be centred around my realm. As we expand we will tear down the ugly suburban houses to replace them with attractive ones, we will also remove all gumtrees and genocide marsupials(as well as ugly people and people that I don't like). Once oil is secured expansion will be rapid, we will be able to build cars, planes and ships to expand to all points of the world. The various conquered lands will be awarded to the most loyal maids to administrate and the maids are not allowed to have children, my own children will be the only blood line permitted amongst the aristocracy so until that dynasty is created the land that the maids control will have t be inherited by other maids.

This is my doomsday plan, I just need to get the land first.

There was an initiative in Russia, you could buy land very cheap in the far east or in Siberia somewhere, in return you had to live there for X years and develop it. I dunno if it's still going on, but that might be for you. You have to wait with the butchering of the marsupials, there are very little around there.

I probably would not live there, it's full of Russians and I would have to learn their barbarous language.

One can find cheap land in the English speaking world, Tasmania is quite sparely populated, they have about 500,000 people there for an island the size and fertility of England. New Zealand's South Island is even larger but with 1 million people. I actually would not mind living in new Zealand, apparently quite a few rich people build doomsday houses there as well.

Speaking of butchering.
In the topic of handling livestock >>35328 slaughtering also task we should think about. How to do it and if we can do it. Slaughtering a pig alone is a very hard and dangerous thing to do. Especially a grown fattened one, they are strong with lotsa weight. And then the processing of the carcass also a work intensive task. So both needs helping hands maids.
So picking out animals to keep as a foodsource has it's caveats. Knowing our limits help.
Probably goats are also a tricky species to slaughter, but still would pick them for the diary products.
Or maybe sheep. They give wool which can be used more flexibly for creating clothing than leather/skin/fur of a goat. I heard their milk in itself is too fatty to drink, but it can be turned into other products.

Btw first picrel is a breed of sheep called cikta originating from Germany, but today it can only be found here at us, and only a couple of herds, since it was replaced by breeds (like merino) which produce more meat and wool.

Goats and sheep are not actually a problem(provided you are not squeamish), my uncle raises sheep and goats in the fields of various relatives and butchers them himself(complete with ye old throat cutting method). It's still a skill to learn though but then even skinning rabbits is. Raising rabbits for meat probably would not be a bad idea, kind of like chickens but one would get bored of chicken all the time(could probably use them to make hats from as well).

I got the sudden idea to look up an old Hungarian science-fiction magazine, the Galaktika. I remember seeing some when I was a kid. It was published from 1972 to 1995, then restarted in 2004. They have a website now too, but after a quick look-see I have no good opinion on that for now.
Anyway I wanna browse old ones, I haven't seen on the site any, but Wikipee linked an archived ftp server with the first five issue. Maybe I'll find more. I hope, coz I won't be able to post here much otherwise.
I thought if I find something interesting, I write a little, make screenshots, post pictures from them. Or just look up Boros Zoltán's and Szikszai Gábor's works, they made great many illustrations for the magazine throughout the years. Curiously their website has a "Gallery" option, but I found an empty page there.

Tokien's house is for sale. Anyone? It's just 4 million quids.
Some blokes () wanna buy it and panhandling for money since November, "projectnorthmoor" or something. Their face is Ian McKellen/Gandalf. There's a limitation what can be done with the house since it's a protected place, so they can't make outright museum out of it, because it cannot be opened for the public just like that.
The want to renovate/restore it, the garden too, then creating a "literary center" there, supporting fresh writers, organize courses and such. Also a hobbit house at the back of the garden.
The whole publicity is kinda sensationalist, writing shit like "save the house" as if there's something to save it from. But that is needed in these days I guess, and with injecting money in it they can save it from deterioration for a while, I dunno how the building is cared for now.

Essentially it is ready. I might make it thinner, and/or coat it with varnish (so the oils it gathers from the skin, the dust that settles on the surface won't build up and make it dirty, so it can be cleaned and kept clean easier).

Since the previous reached bump limit.

Played some moar Atom RPG. I don't really have any coherent text drafted but some impressions, moments and such.

This game is depressing. It's like they extracted all the misery of the Soviet Union, ground it, added a hint mutants and monsters, then crammed it into one misery-sausage. Ofc there are funny lines and situations in there, always when you least expect. And you never expect them because the whole thing is so depressing.
NPC interactions are animated nicely. Heart warming meeting of father and daughter. Then they started to gossip about me.

Tried CK3 yesterday.

Overall, it is the same as CK2, but with large console interface for idiots, some improvements like more sophisticated lifestyle/trait system, and some simplifications like removing specific nomad/republic gameplay (surely they'll go into DLC). It is full of 3d, has complex face generator, looks pretty different in style, but still mostly a same game.

I think they made combat somewhat more interesting just by allowing even small countries to have some kind of retinue (although combat as process is less sophisticated now). They also put most of personal-related CK2+DLCs things into base game (swaying, lifestyle). Council is weaker, laws are passed easier, but instead global levy/tax law you'll need to negotiate specific vassal for individual agreement.

Personally I think that game is relatively good, at least at first glance.

Krautchan had a bunch of bunkers all over the place, boards but even whole chans.
The whole thing started in 2016 August when Krautchan went down for like two weeks. Bernds spread everywhere, we (as in the hardcore of /kc/) grew out from the leftovers of the refugees in the bunker on 8chan. While we were there someone here on End - which was little more than half year old chan back then - created /kc/ around the same time (2016 August).
So while Krautchan was working again in August, we stayed on 8/kc and did our thing. But eventually we had to move from there in 2017 March, and this board here was claimable and desolated. BO claimed it and we moved in, and put to good use.
Coincidentally 3 days later Krautchan went down for liek two weeks again. Sometimes after that a German bloke appeared saying this is his board. He stopped with this quickly, probably went back to Kraut forgetting this place once more.
And oops he did it again.

I prefer to think of all such somewhat-anthropomorphic depictions as only symbolic and representational, as Lovecraft himself indicates, the octopus-dragon-squid Thing itself hardly describable with accuracy by human minds.
The bas-relief was a rough rectangle less than an inch thick and about five by six inches in area; obviously of modern origin. [...] Above these apparent hieroglyphics was a figure of evident pictorial intent, though its impressionistic execution forbade a very clear idea of its nature. It seemed to be a sort of monster, or symbol representing a monster, of a form which only a diseased fancy could conceive. If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.

The figure, which was finally passed slowly from man to man for close and careful study, was between seven and eight inches in height, and of exquisitely artistic workmanship. It represented a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind. This thing, which seemed instinct with a fearsome and unnatural malignancy, was of a somewhat bloated corpulence, and squatted evilly on a rectangular block or pedestal covered with undecipherable characters. The tips of the wings touched the back edge of the block, the seat occupied the centre, whilst the long, curved claws of the doubled-up, crouching hind legs gripped the front edge and extended a quarter of the way down toward the bottom of the pedestal. The cephalopod head was bent forward, so that the ends of the facial feelers brushed the backs of huge fore paws which clasped the croucher's elevated knees.
The Thing cannot be described--there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order.
