“Preface
This document contains all (or nearly all) of the publicly known lore of the world of The Wayward Realms. It will continue to be updated (provided we remember to do so) until I set aside some time to get a proper wiki up and running (I’ll get around to it sooner or later). For legal reasons I will preface the document with this: This document contains some naughty imagery. This game is planned to release with an 18+/M for mature rating, and while there will be no explicit content in the game, there will be nudity, and there is nudity in this doc. Please do not read this document if you are under 18, or whatever the legal age is in your country. If you insist on reading it anyway, get a trusted adult to cover your eyes when there’s a naughty image on the screen. Thank you for reading this preface, and welcome to the world of The Wayward Realms.”

“Netflix is laying off, and most of the layoffs were employees who seemingly identified as “activists” working on shows and media for “marginalized people.” Is Netflix using the downturn in their fortune to jettison some truly annoying people that could cost them money in the long run? We’ve seen this before at other companies…”

“Viewer Question:
Darryl Meyers Drew – It looks like the Axe Of Zaslav cuts so deeply it even transcends time and space. Not only is the guy shutting down and killing underperforming and bad projects, he’s also holding execs accountable for past mistakes at the company. Just read that he grilled movie execs at WB over Clint Eastwood’s El Macho since it was obvious that movie would lose the studio money. Do you think that was harsh of him?”

“Chris Gore is a writer, comedian, author and television personality who has built a solid reputation as a hilariously outspoken voice in the entertainment world. As a teenager, Chris founded the brutally honest magazine Film Threat, which began as a fanzine while he was a college student in Detroit. As Film Threat evolved into a respected national magazine, he relocated to Los Angeles. The print magazine was retired in 1997 when it was re-launched as a web site. FilmThreat.com found a huge audience online and was named one of the top five movie web sites by the Wall Street Journal. Chris has appeared as a film expert on MSNBC, E!, CNN, Travel Channel, and Reelz Channel. Chis has also hosted shows on FX, Starz, IFC and G4TV’s Attack of the Show as the show’s film expert. His weekly movie review segment DVDuesday was among the most popular on G4. Chris is also an author, having written The 50 Greatest Movies Never Made and The Complete DVD Book. His book The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide is considered the bible of the industry and is required reading at film school.”

“The streaming bubble is bursting, and Hollywood is going to look very different after the dust clears. Layoffs at Netflix and Warner Bros. will catch many off guard, and this is just the beginning. Ricky Gervais probably finds this all VERY amusing right now.”

This has been predictable for a long, long time…They cant keep bleeding money forever.

“Elon Musk is slowing down the acquisition of Twitter to verify the number of fake accounts on the platform. Twitter said it’s less than 5% of active accounts, but everybody knows just how fake and phony Twitter can be. Is Space Daddy looking to get a better deal, send a message, or stick it to problematic Twitter employees? Who knows, but he still seems committed to buy.”

Yes!…Make Twitter prove its true economic worth!…

…Who knows what all they’re lying about, when they lie so easily…so fluidly…without a care.

Maybe Elon can get it for half his current offer…No need to waste money.

“Police body cam footage has been released of Ezra Miller getting arrested in Hawaii, and it’s INSANE! Miller is combative and demanding the officers give they/them their badge numbers, claims the man he attacked was a “yahtzi” and that he’s regularly assaulted over NFT art, and other meme-able nuggets. Clearly Miller needs mental help.”

Marvel’s Directors QUIT or Get NERFED…

“The MCU has a “director problem” according to Rolling Stone. Yes, they either have their hands tied by Disney… or they just quit. And it’ll likely get worse going forward. We talk about how Sam Raimi got nerfed in Doctor Strange 2, and how Jon Watts quit Fantastic Four.”

Doctor Strange 2, in my judgement, was a perfectly enjoyable, good movie.

I saw nothing wrong with this movie, at all…In fact, it has two super cute boys in it!…and this MCU movie isn’t all about the big tropes…

It’s good that the Red Witch is given a very personal motive…They went micro and nuanced, which makes it all the more unique, differentiated and interesting…This isn’t just the same old boilerplate crap.
