Answering people’s questions for tips.

I’ve decided to answer any question for 3$. There has been an overwhelmingly positive response to my answering questions, and I’ve answered over 200+ questions on quora.

Currently 47+ people have requested for me to answer their questions on Quora.

I just don’t have time to get to answering them all without receiving a 3$ tip to buy a coffee as an incentive.

That’s capitalism for you, and i’m the worst kind of capitalist: according to the government, I earn below the poverty line. I’m allowed to raise 10k in donations, tips or gifts per year. gg.

Tip me today and I might reddit your question and it’s response, in the form of an open letter or even reply as a poem.

I bet you my tim hortons coffee tommorow that i’m still opposed; and that nobody will even tip me, but that many people will flock to quora for some kind of response to a question.

Guess I’ll buy my own coffee and answer questions regardless, like every other starving artist.

About Neutral God. Part 1

More about my character: Neutral G.

“Of the rise of Neut; Part 1”

“Neutral God” was, in fact, an evil sorcerer at first. Or was he, in fact, good to start? Nobody really knows, as he’s as old as the old gods, as old as the hills, as old as the furniture at st. mike’s or trinity college.

But at any rate, this is my story, so let’s say for a moment that, Neutral G. started off as an evil sorcerer. But why then, is he the God of Neutrality?

Well, at first there was only GOOD and EVIL. People were compulsed by the G-ds, or themselves and each other, to be either selfish and evil; “baddies” as they came to be called; or alternately selfless, and therefore “goodies”.

Evil people or baddies soon got smart. “We’re good” they said to the good people of Gaya; “You’re evil, not us.”

This is how detect alignment was first cast, and for the first time, wizard types and sorcerers were all the rage. Just what was your alignment? You could be shot by a goodie for being a baddie in the wrong neighborhood. Baddies took to themselves, and formed guilds, and only ever socialized with like-minded baddies. Good was opposed and all was well in the world. And Bad people got rich, and came to power.

“Dark times.”

And dark times were upon the land. And art was oppressed.

It is not yet known how and why the Gods took pity upon a sorcerer who wanted to be a wizard; an evil boy who wanted to do good; a baddie by the name of, well, Neutral G. is what everybody called him, or Neut for short; and it just so happens that his namesake is his keepsake, since he did, go on to become: a great sorcerer and the self-professed God of Neutrality, though why he abhorred evil and went on to support good is anybody’s admonition or guess, really; why couldn’t he be compulsed to act evil-y if in his jurisprudence he was, in fact, an evil boy?

My guess is as good as yours. I know only that, after trials and tribulations, which I’ll get into in a book some day, if I ever sit down to write it, which I probably won’t, but at any rate: where was I?

Neut became so powerful, and so capable, that the favor of the very Gods, both Good and Evil, were upon him. The Very Gods tugged this way and that, for both side wanted him to be either Good or Evil; but Neut was, well, Neutral, really;

So the gods, to coax him, granted him a wish, hoping he would wish to be either Good or Evil, and they could then settle on what was what.

But Neutral God wished to be a God himself, and neither Good nor Evil would have him, but the wish worked; he became, of his own persons and capability, the very first neut; the self-professed God of Neutrality.

“Well neut, you’ve gone and done it, and wished yourself into obscurity and oblivion. You are a G-d, but at what cost? You’re neither Good, Nor Evil, and everybody is opposed to you! And, there are no neuts, in this cruel and ignorant earth, none but you.”

To Be Continued.

health update: Issues with Concentration.

I’ve been having issues reading and in general my concentration is severely lacking. I no longer drive, haven’t for years, and in general, reading has slowed down a lot.

I’m able to pass one course per year, but only when I struggle to read the materials. I’m finishing university at my own pace.

I try to read 25 pages a day, but the reality is that many days I cannot. So I pop on the computer instead, sometimes playing video games.

I’m slowly putting the dream of one day writing books behind me, and am playing more online chess, also on my mobile phone: 3 minute blitz.

But I do want to finish my BA in English Literature. I’ve started it: Need to finish it some day.

I have to take a Shakespeare course this year, so that’ll be intense, and interesting…

Catch some of y’all on Campus this year! Classes: Tues/Thurs 1pm.

Chess: the stubby or mini: chess openings theory.

I espoused my own tradition in Chess. The ‘mini’ opening is a one-square pawn opening, often d3, usually to take the other side of the board, e4 or c4 second, depending on the response. Usually away from the player. note: I suck at chess. but d3 then c4 or e4 seems pretty great.

This I call the ‘stubby’ or mini, because my first pawn only moves one square. I’ve been toying with which pawn to stubby or mini with. Alas, I’m worse than a novice and often have several blunders per game. I’m terrible. But so far, the opening is going well.

I wonder when I’ll grow out of this phase of my learning chess, out of this stubby or mini opening theory.

I’m learning alot and enjoying it very much. second move e4 seems great when I get white. Just having that diagonal on move two is so great.

I do this for both black and white pieces. the stubby or mini. who woulda thought?

I make unforgivable rookie mistakes though and lose the game. But that’s okay too. I’m just learning and having fun.

Thinking of a Bard/Minstrel and Ranger.

I’ve purposefully overloaded Neutral G. even his weapons are sentient and his extroardinary abilities, some of which are innate, seem pretty damn powerful.

I’ve since moved on from Neutral G. to other characters. I might “nerf” Neutral G. a little. He seems a little O.P. (“overpowered”).

I’ll clean things up eventually – maybe even write a little fiction.

I like sentient weapons and talking swords with their own alignments and character sheets.

Bottom line: Some of the dialogue in my book is by … sentient, talking swords and other objects.

the leader of an assasins guild is a telepathic daggar named Cruelty.

Will this make the final cut? I’m toying wiht the idea that the sword, Benevolence, has it’s own viewpoint, it’s own dialogue, it’s own character scenes. Same with the daggar: Cruelty.

Maybe i’ll switch up a viewpoint character a little, make it an art object, i.e. a talking sword / telepathic daggar.

Benevolence and Cruelty: Neutral G’s Two Magical Weapons.

Unlike many wizards, Neutral G dual wields a longsword which is thought to have it’s own good alignment, probably lawful, called: Benevolence, which argues with him constantly over his morally corrupt decisions and his siding with evil, but reluctantly stays by his side.

His offhand is a dagger called Cruelty, which is also has it’s own alignment, that of evil.

It is thought that both weapons espouse a neutral position but it is uncertan why they remain with their wielder, drawing him ever toward good and/or evil even though he is the God of Neutrality.

Equip All Martial Weapons (Neutrality): Speculation: it is not certain how a wizard can wield a sword and daggar, but some claim that neuts train with all martial weapons, and equip whatever they find on hand, regardless of their class, mainly because of Neutral G. They forego bonuses of Specializations to do so. “Whatever it is, so may it be.”

Speculation: Is Neutral G a high level wizard and a dual-class offspec? He communes with animals and shapeshifts and wields a sword and daggar.

Knights have been known to swear an oath to Benevolence and have flocked to Neutral G’s faction, setting up facilities to train with longswords. Some have remained Good but side with Neutrality.

Cunning Assassins respect Cruelty’s magic, and ever whisper to Neutral G in his mind, corrupting him with evil thoughts and begging him for assistance elsewhere, ever in secret.

How this faction, Neutrality, will play out, is anybody’s guess.

The “Neut-By-Force” or Artist’s conundrum.

Many people flock to Neutral G. and believe him to be a kind and benevolent humanoid, whenever he deems it appropriate. It would seem that humanity is mesmerized by his leadership style, and his granting of wishes and his wizardy.

But how he came to be the de-facto ruler of the Neuts, has a bloody history. He actually beheaded a kind and benevolent king, who was neutral, but often sided with Good, to take his throne and the title of “NEutral God”.

This bloody history, having happened centuries ago, is forgotten by many, but not by some scholars.

Therefore, the “neut-by-force” conundrum is ever at play, and Neutral G. knows that, if he is attacked and killed, someone else might rise up in his steed and become de-facto ruler of the Neuts instead of him.

Fortunately, Neutral G. is probably unkillable, having become a part of the fabric of the universe, and immortal. He regenerates quickly, even amputated limbs grow back, and has access to wish spells, for which he is venerated and worshipped like a God. Some say the real Neutral G. is traversing the multiverse, and all of the Neutral Gs in Gaia are mere copies, his servants, and apparitions.

It is said that his wishes are granted by the gods himself, to appease him.

Defining “Neutral G.”

This is from a homebrew i made, without knowing much about 5e. Don’t quote me yet, as it’s a work in progress. Im adding to it daily and editing it often.


Neutral G. is an evil wizard who is the self-proclaimed god of neutrality. He claims to be neither good nor evil. But he often sides with evil (for now) and has done so for centuries, tipping the scales of balance towards evil.

Neutral G is venerated by goodies, who want him to side with Good and tip the scales of neutrality towards GOod’s favor. He can do so by granting those who believe in him, an extraordinary amount of luck. He also has been known to grant wishes to those who venerate him, and miracles to good people.

a little bit about Neutral G.

-Neutral G. can fly, and often flees from combat by doing so. He is known to take long voyages of flight to travel the continent and even the cosmos, and seems to have an innate ability to fly, as it comes natural to him. He’s often seen hovering, moving faster than if he would have been on the ground. People cower before his hooded visage. Some say he was born of a dragon mother who took human form, or that he has some dragon ancestry in him.

-Neutral G. can cast and grant wishes, making him one of the most respected, and most powerful wizards, ever to have occured. He is venerated by good, evil and neutrality guilds and is considered de-facto ruler of the neuts or neutral people, even though he often sides with evil for the moment, for reasons unknown. Some scoff at this and call him “Evil G.”, though never to his face.

-Neutral G. can commune with spirits and animals. he often has an animal companion with him, and talks to birds. Small animals flock to his aid and cause. He ever claims that animals are venerable and neutral, and he ever protects them. He can shape-shift into animals and enemy creatures and is often seen as a beholder in combat.

-Neutral G. has “the highest luck score possible; the highest luck score in the game” and often gambles with unsuspecting people. “to acquire wealth, therefore selfish, therefore evil”.

-Neutral G. Can take on the guise and form of any other person on earth, and is very convincing when he does so, often getting his way as the other person.

-Neutral G. can communicate telepathically with anyone in the world, at any time.

-it is thought that Neutral G. is a part of the fabric of the universe, representing the turning of luck. That is why he is venerated by soldiers and artists. SOme claim that he is, was, and always shall be. Apparently he cannot die and is immortal.

-Neutral G. often travels back and forth in time, and can see the future. He can change people’s fate by granting them luck, and often travels forward in time to see the outcome of their fate. He then travels back to modern time, knowing the future. This takes him a long time to do, however, and often weeks, months, pass with him traversing alternate futures. At these times he is missing from court and sentences are handed down summarily without him.

-Neutral G. is likely unkillable and a fabric of the cosmos. He often flies away from combat.

-Neutral G. is often seen as a royal court jester or fool, tipping the scales in the courts to neut’s favor, by fooling kings with his humor. Some say that he is Lawful because of his keen interest in courts and trial outcomes of the populace – and his “effect” on people of importance. Others claim that his “rule of law”, if he espouses one as a diety, is that of a chaotic nature.

-It is thought that Neutral G. can traverse a multiverse, and can communicate with people from other universes which he calls “seeds”. He has claimed to communicate from people from Earth, which he claims is “another seed in the multiverse”.

Known Abilities and spells he is developing (from my Homebrew):

Time Walking. Neutral G can tell your future. He often peers into the future, but also travels to it to physically check it somehow. This takes him on long voyages into potential futures, often lasting up to a month, to make sure the timeline he is in is the right one.

Sealed Fate. an instant-cast death spell on a one week cooldown. however, often the soul returns to the body, after about a week, and the spell has been therefore deemed a failure by him. Still, he has used it often to flee dangerous situations.

Time-stop. Neutral G. often stops time when he is attacked, so that he gets in several rounds of combat before time re-occurs – usually casting spells – but often he flees combat by flying away. He is deadly and powerful and all-knowing, but often shies away from combat.

Omnipotence. Neutral G. always seems to know what you are about, and what you are about to do. He can probably detect alignment at will, and often gazes into possible futures innately. He is rarely caught off-guard.

Shape-Shifting: Neutral G. can become anyone, or any creature, for a limited duration, and often attacks as a beholder, when cornered into a fight. He then frequently becomes a small bird or other flying creature and flies away. Some speculate that he can shape-shift into a great dragon, which is an ancestral ability of some kind, as he might be descended from dragons.

Aura of Charisma: Inspiration Theory: It is theorized that Neutral G. is very charming, when applicable. He inspires others to do evil deeds, if he is siding with evil, for example. People flock to his causes and cheer him on. All the court is awash with his opinions, and his opinions are espoused and ever requested. He curries favor with important people, and they are always inspired by him somehow. It is said that trials are decided by him, and not the Evil King he often supports.

Alternate: Aura of Patheticness/Meekness. At other times, Often Neutral G. shape-shifts into a simple court jester or fool when he is bored, and people are convinced he actually is one. This has become the symbol of his reign, as he often states “I am ever the fool” and chuckles softly to himself. HE can be seen at court, influencing decisions.

Psionics? It is speculated that Neutral G. Might be a low to mid level homebrew psionic in addition to a high level wizard. He delves deep into people’s minds and controls their intuition by inspiring them. They speculate that he can charm people to aid in his causes.

Illusion: Copy-Cat or Abberation: Several copies of Neutral G. have been created, to do menial tasks on his behalf. They look, act and talk like the real thing, and communicate and are commanded by him telepathically. If one is attacked, all become alerted. As such, nobody knows where the real Neutral G. is, and whether or not they’re talking to him, or a copy of himself. He spends all his time, time-walking the cosmos or multiverse or visiting possible alternate futures, whilst his copies potentially rule the cosmos, or so it is whispered.
