To be an average, town-based, underpaid blacksmith all you need is a smithy with a furnace, a hammer, steel, a smattering of hatred within, an anvil, and a crucible. But if you wish to be the best and be paid your weight in gold, then you need the largest backpack you can find, a wheelbarrow if possible, knowledge, bravery, and, of course, a sword.
Olendor knew this, and he knew many more things. The nomad forger, the kings called him. For it was a custom of his to step into a city of his pleasing, work for a week in a random smithy, and then sell a handful of swords like no one had seen before to those who could afford them, only vanish the day after.
His secret? He didn’t use steel.
It was late in the night, and the fog of the swamp tumbled, humid, onto Olendor’s face. He left his backpack in the wheelbarrow, and with his sharpest sword in hand, into the water he went.
Not a sound could be heard, not a sign of life could be seen. And so, Olendor dived in, and it was then when he saw a dozen of small lights shining in the dark.
A smile forged in his face when he saw the shine belonged to tiny serpents. He snatched them and pressed until he heard a crack and a cry. He returned to the surface then, breathed, and down he went again, until the hundreds of lights were murdered into shadows.
In that moment, when the darkness became seamless, the swamp exploded with light. Olendor bolted to the surface, and swam to land as fast as he could. The water burst, and a serpent the size of a thousand men surged out of it, its scales glowing bloodred.
Olendor turned. He avoided the beast’s attack, and struck its head. But it was like hitting a wall with a twig. “So it’s true,” he murmured, and without hesitation, when the serpent opened its maw, sword aloft, he plunged right into it, avoiding the fangs.
The creature shrieked. Blood drenched Olendor as he lacerated the flesh. Still he laughed, and when the monster ceased moving, through the mouth, he got out.
He grabbed a scale from the corpse. “Light. Harder than all things. I wonder what’s the melting point.”

El sistema digestivo puede absorber 10 gramos de proteina hora. La recomendación mínima es comer un gramo de proteina por kg de peso corporal, y hasta un máximo de 1.8 gramos si haces ejercicio, para regenerar los músculos. Para una persona de 70 kilos, eso son 126 gramos de proteina al día aproximadamente. Para actividad física de alto desempeño se puede exceder a 2 gramos por Kg de peso corporal.

After 20mins of battling something I knew was big the rod snapped in half!😬 For another 10mins the fight continued with just a reel and 2 eyelets left🙏 then this monster popped up 😱🦈. Just when I thought he was more knackered than me, he let me know he had more gas in the tank!
I know I’m supposed to be posting good art lmaooo but! I’ve given big ol man a name and now I’m in love with him and I can’t stop drawing him.
Here’s a shitty/sketchy comic I made of Avok finding/eating watermelon 🤷🏽♀️. I want to do a lil background sheet kind of thing on him because my brain is cooking up some good shit for him.
After it looked like Joey Logano had the best car early, as soon as the sun started to set Truex took over. Truex would pass Harvick on the final run, with around 30 to go. He would take off from there and not be caught. Truex is now locked into the Round of 12 and can look ahead to Dover.
Erik Jones and Kurt Busch both had issues. Jones’ car would get stuck in 2nd gear, forcing him to go to the garage. Kurt Busch would blow a tire and slam the wall ending his day. Jones is most likely in must win territory as he sits 26 points below the cut line. Busch could still make it on points, but will need good runs the next two races as he sits 14 points below the cut line.
Kyle Larson, William Byron, Ryan Blaney and Alex Bowman all entered today with little playoff points, but all ran solid putting them double digits above the cut line. Aric Almirola scored a lot of stage points but faded and finished 13th. He is 6 points above the cut line. Ryan Newman had a solid top 10 finish, but lacked in stage points. He sits just 6 points below the cut line. Clint Bowyer started on the pole and had high hopes for today, but he struggled to get on to pit road, then later he cut a tire and he could never rebound. He also similar to Jones may be in must win territory as he is 21 points below the cut line.
