Rainsong: Topic: Practical Uses for Constructs

Rainsong: Thanks to Whisp for the suggestion

Chirotractor: ships
new name
it shall be done!

Rainsong: Hi, Chiro

Rainsong: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

Rainsong: Welcome to another seminar here at the social club.

Rainsong: Our topic for the evening is “Practical Uses for Constructs”

Rainsong: Surprisingly enough, there are some.

Rainsong: Any questions or commentary before we dive into the discussion?

Rainsong: Apparently not.

Rainsong: Aside from the standard children’s toys and shielding, constructs can actually have practical uses in everyday life.

Rainsong: Actually, the “children’s toys” thing can in itself be a practical use. Ever been stranded at the airport with delayed flights or weather problems… or worse, stuck on the tarmac… and there are bored kids?

Rainsong: Getting them to make “pretend beach balls” can save everyone’s sanity…

Rainsong: Of course, force-bubbles have pretty obvious uses:

Rainsong: Most of you have heard about the car crash situation, where I tossed one around my car before going into the side of a hill

Rainsong: I wouldn’t recommend depending on them entirely – there isn’t much in this world that works 100% of the time – but it’s worth a shot

Chirotractor: o/

Raggiedmon: Ello

Rainsong: Hi, Chiro 🙂

Rainsong: Hi, Raggied

Rainsong: Any request for a topic or should I open to a random page in my handy dandy book of psionic cool stuff?

Chirotractor: I’d like to see what the random page is

Chirotractor: but I got a friend who was interested in radionics yesterday

Chirotractor: so imma see if they want to come

Rainsong: Sure.

Chirotractor: Rad!

Chirotractor: Probably shoulda mentioned something earlier though XP

Raggiedmon: for some lecture in the future it would be cool to go over strange, rare, and little known lore

Rainsong: Sure thing.

Tash Rikil: hi

Rainsong: Hi there, and welcome. I gather you’re the friend Chiro mentioned?

Tash Rikil: i am. nice to meet you

Rainsong: Nice to meet you, too.

Rainsong: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to the weekly psionics seminar here at the social club

Chirotractor: Find it funny y’all never met before since you been around vaguely similar circles for ages

Rainsong: It looks like our topic for the evening is a look at radionics

Tash Rikil: hmm thank you

Rainsong: We’ll start with a Friendly Definition, to make sure we’ll all on the same proverbial page, for the purposes of discussion

Rainsong: (Because, as you may have noticed, there’s sometimes a wee tiny bit of disagreement on terminology in this field of study)

Rainsong: Radionics is the use of tools in the production of psionic effects

Rainsong: For old-school purists, that’s a circular definition, because “psionics” was originally a subset of “radionics” but has since been used more loosely

Rainsong: Anyone interested in a class tonight?

Rainsong: I’m guessing at least passing interest, seeing as folks bothered to pop in here

Kate Embers: I’d surely read up :thinking:

Carmen: sorry, connection kamikazed

Carmen: I’m up for it. can we talk about spells? if you know about it. I’m not really sure what they’re about or how they work

Rainsong: I’m a psionicist, rather than a spell-caster, as such, but we can discuss it, with the large caveat that I am not an expert

Rainsong: Spellcraft it is

Carmen: killer. I’m fine with just an overview. I have no idea how it fit’s together and what’s fluff and what isn’t. I pretty much know sympathy and that’s it

Rainsong: Ahhh, I see

Carmen: buildings too if yiou’re an urban mage

Carmen: I’m not so much asking how to contact them as nice things to do/things they like ect

Rainsong: Not my area of expertise, but I can offer some advice on it.

Rainsong: Some of these entities would appreciate respect and acknowledgement, first of all. That respect has been sorely lacking in most places, for centuries.

Rainsong: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

Rainsong: Welcome to another seminar here at the social club.

Carmen: hello

ceahhettan: Woo~

Rainsong: Our topic for the evening, is Lucid Dreaming. (And for logging purposes later, this is LECTURE72 )

Rainsong: Is usual, we’ll be discussing real-world stuff, rather than gaming, so if you’ve suddenly discovered you’re not in the Discord server you thought you were in, things might be a bit weird

Rainsong: Also, as usual, we’ll start with a friendly definition, to make sure we’re all on the same page, at least for the purposes of this discussion.

Rainsong: “Lucid dreaming” refers to dreaming during which you are aware that you’re dreaming.

Rainsong: Often, you can also take control of the dream, but not necessarily.

Flux: I thought about it… and… I can’t think of anything.

Flux: Hey Rain. How goes it today?

Rainsong: Doing okay here, thanks. You?

Rainsong: I was also vaguely thinking in terms of constructs, mostly because someone mentioned making a construct earlier this afternoon

Flux: Pretty good.

Flux: Hey, that’s a thing then.

Rainsong: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. 🙂

Rainsong: Welcome to another seminar here at the social club.

Rainsong: You know the drill… yada yada yada

Rainsong: Looks like we’ll be discussing constructs this evening.

Rainsong: Hiho. Anyone around?

Chirotractor: o/

Rainsong: Hi, Chiro

Rainsong: Looks like you might be the only one here tonight. Do you have any questions or commentary about radionics? Or would you prefer a different topic?

Chirotractor: I’m honestly only barely here.

Eclipse: Im here sorry.

Rainsong: Not a problem, Chiro.

Eclipse: Got caught up in something.

Chirotractor: just figured someone would show up late XP

Rainsong: How about you, Elipse? Any questions or commentary? Or prefer a different topic?

Flux: I’m also around. Just got here.

Eclipse: Got anything on nontraditional radionics? Without the machines but kind of same principle of distracting the mind. The way I had explained the machines just sort of distract you consciously while your subconscious goes through with the intent?

Wayfarer: @here I randomly walked in here and noticed what time it is! Hello Internet. LECTURE68 starts here.

Goatmistress: Hi

Chirotractor: Hello!

Eclipse: hello

Wayfarer: I had equal votes for continuing the program thing and a derail about radionics. The other topic will be done in…one? Two weeks? Next time I’m teaching. Of people who are here, strong preferences?

Wayfarer: This is gonna be a to the point thing, my family is here and also, Sekiro is a stupidly fun and challenging game, and I miiiight be playing that a bit.

Chirotractor: I’m just here because I like words

Wayfarer: Boy have you come to the right place! I mostly use words!

Goatmistress: haha

Wayfarer: Right, so, last time I taught a lecture thing, I was talking about moving and sensing energy inside the body, grounding, centering, and some other energy-manipulation focused things within one’s own energetic body.

Wayfarer: The next step is pushing the energy outside the body. And the first bit is going to be the … psiball. Wow! Amazing.

Chirotractor: gasp

Wayfarer: Now, the psiball is something we’ve done about a billion times. A lot of people struggle with it early on. I think that most of these problems come from poorly formed ideas about what exactly we’re doing, or a lack of connection between visualization and actual direction of energy.

Rainsong: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen

Rainsong: Welcome to another seminar here at the social club.

Rainsong: As usual, we will be discussing real-world psionics, so if that is likely to weird you out, you might want to find a tamer server.

Rainsong: Our topic for the evening is Telepathy, prompted by questions being floated in the social hall yesterday.

Rainsong: It may be useful to start it off as a question-and-answer format… and then we’ll see how it goes from there.
