I want to begin a new series about a Hungarian pen and paper role playing game I've already mentioned in other thread(s). It's called M.A.G.U.S. - Kalandorok Krónikái (Chronicles of Adventurers) and I wish to guide you through it's history, world and maybe even rules. Frankly I'm not well prepared and most likely not the best person for the job, but, well, I'm the only one here and this is the best it's gonna get.
IRL talking with a real M.A.G.U.S. fan about M.A.G.U.S. is a real herculean challange as they can be extremely assburgerish about insignificant details, they can cite some careless comment from an obscure magazine's unknown article anytime and consider it rock solid canon they can base their opinion. It's worse to play it with an experienced fanatic as they are capable arguing to the point of the knife with the Kalandmester or Mesélő (Adventure Master or Tale Teller/Story-Teller, the DM, it's KM from no on) even if everyone knows the First Rule: the KM is always right.

Of course any other rpg can be discussed here, but I'd like to keep this thread for pnp or tabletop rpgs, crpgs should go into the Vidya thread.

This is the Első Törvénykönyv (First Code of Law or Rulebook, from now on ETK). It was published in 1997 for the first time.
>2nd pic
The Nagy Zöld (Big Green). Well this is the real first rulebook, published in 1993. The rules were written for a few years (I saw some parts in a mag from 1991) still it was full of errors, fuck ups and inconsistencies some of them haunt even in current year and will haunt probably forever. Never read it btw.
>3rd pic
Második Törvénykönyv (Second Code of Law) published in 1995 so even this predates the ETK... This one... I don't think it is more than some shitty addendum, even the foreword states every rule in this book is optional.
>4th pic
The continent of Ynev. I've no idea how to pronounce it so I call it Inev. The world itself is called Satriale... no, Satralis it has two other continents noone cares about only some vague shit were written about them and are unplayable by default. I think the ETK not even mentions the planet or operates on the supposition that Ynev is the name of the world. In following posts you will meet names very typical fantasy worlds. Lots of them were borrowed from IRL or other fantasy resources so prepare some familiar sounding stuff.

Oh I forgot. It's just a typical medieval fantasy world, with elves, dwarves and orcs. Luckily I don't know anything about gay-ass halflings.

> don't see the point of them being humanlike. Anthropomorph. Stuff like the Catapult, Madcat, they make sense, but Atlas, Wolverine, etc. don't. Why making a proper head, and fingers? They don't really need arms.

Original authors of game just decided to make game about big walking robots.

Don't try to find any serious realism in BT universe. In tabletop rules, most of mech weapons have effective ranges less than 1km. Artillery and aviation is very underrepresented in combat and do almost nothing compared to real world (not even talking about future). There are no battles with million people involved, no tactical missiles that shoot for hundreds of kilometers etc.

But I don't think that authors had a choice - with realistic approach you can't make game centered around walking robots fighting each other.

I guess authors originally didn't make combat rules for specific universe, but made universe specifically around mech battles. It may be viewed as sci-fi with some fantasy-style heroic feel. BT world mostly has Western feudal structure with lords, barons and counts. Mechwarriors are basically knights. Technological part is pretty bleak, most of tech is something that we can easily understand right now (except hyperspace drives).

I dont think realistically any mech would make sense tbh, as in replacing other war machines with them. They exist in various media only because its Cool.

Bernd 08/11/2022 (Thu) 15:21 [Preview] No.48473 del
In real life mechs would be quite easy to spot and shoot and hard to armour because of the surface area they have exposed. So to fix that you would make the mech lie prone and give it treads and a rotating turret at which point you have a tank.

The only use I think a mech would have would be to walk around difficult terrain like mountains but those mechs would still be a lot smaller that they are in media and more like an artillery piece with legs.

Bernd 08/11/2022 (Thu) 16:46 [Preview] No.48474 del
"Realistically" mechs could be a variation of exoskeletons. With armor, and mount points for weapons.
They don't need to be several meter tall robots. As for the dimensions could be a height of a tank (2-3 m) max, the width and length are obviously less. Not sure about the speed, or agility, or the power source... (gadget X propulsion)
They could fix machine guns, anti-material rifles, infantry anti-tank rockets, even mortars upon them. Or some kind of a multiple rocket launchers (like on the Catapult models or something).
They should withstand small arm and machine gun fire, grenade and mortar shrapnel, anti-infantry mines, but I wouldn't expect them to withstand something more serious.
Maybe they could climb stairs, or the lighter models could scale walls.
They should have some kind of HUD, with screens which could display video feed (from other mechs, or drones).
One problem I see especially with the heavier ones: the pressure from the weight is distributed on too small areas (soles). They would need wide feet.

Previous one is autosäging.

Wanna watch The Longest Yard, the original Burt Reynolds movie.
I only see two remakes, the Mean Machine with Vinnie Jones, and the Adam Sandler comedy from 2005. Probably the only good Adam Sandler movie. It's greatest selling point is the catchy tunes played in the background and the supporting cast. Judging by the screenshots it follows the original story quite tightly. The Mean Machine is adapted to the circumstances of a Bri'is prison and normal football. It was entertaining too.
One more remake was made, and Egyptian one: Captain Masr in 2015. Not sure if it's available anywhere, or has any English dubs or subs. Also features normal football.

Last year I found out there's native Linux version of the Baldur's Gate Enhanced Editions. They are working well but I don't think I'll ever finish a playthrough again. Back then I finished original BG, and BG2, but not the Throne of Bhaal expansion. Damn long games.
Enhanced Edition makes it possible to play this classic DnD based crpg on modern steel, fixes bugs, changes some rules, adds new NPCs with quests, new items, two new expansions (The Black Pits - arena fight generator?, and Siege of Dragonspear - which is a module for the original story, taking part between BG1 and BG2). It seems okay all in all.

I'm playing Escape from Tarkov again but this time I actually brought the game so I am playing it online.

It's much more different online as expected, each engagement seems more meaningful and that is good.
But, conversely part of the reason for that is it's much harder and that means that you die all the time and lose your stuff.
If one was just looking at things by K/D then sure I am doing fine, but you have to extract as well, I have not played that many games but I would say 2 kills is my average but the gun fight or fights will draw more players who will kill you and this is not made easier by the more realistic damage system in this game, you can win a fight but then be severely wounded and easy prey to whoever comes after the sounds of gun shots.

Now, I don't mind it being hard, but the issue with hat is that it detracts from the games other aspect which are the guns, you lose them if you die so actually getting the gun you want and customize it how you want like the game wants you do seems like it's next to impossible, no matter how good you are you are going to die and lose it. The game has a insurance system but it takes a while and also if your gun is taken form your body you cannot get it back, and of course the cooler your gun the more likely that is to happen.

Oh, the game has a FAL now as well, or at least a US made version of it. But I did not buy it because if I do I will just die and lose it, sigh....

Good equipment will help a lot, like armour, I have to shoot people a lot before they die and also optics would be very good.
Knowledge of the maps would help, there are no maps that tell you where the extraction is, just names like lighthouse, broken fence by the house, old road gate etc. I don't have a clue where these are, I just wonder around mindlessly.

You can work with other people, but I don't like people so I don't. The first match I played, I got killed by one guy who shot me in the head when I walked through a door, but the second time I walked into two players at dawn, I saw one, shot him a few times until he died then walked towards him but saw that he had a friend with him and we started shooting at each other at the same time, I won but was badly damaged and could barely walk but that did not matter because another player found me and shot me out of nowhere, then the third game I had an SMG and thought to use it full auto recoil is a pig in this game but it's an SMG it should be fine I thought and so I saw a guy running and shot at him but recoil was still bad and I sprayed shots everywhere and he had a shot gun, I did get him but he maimed me so again I could barely move. Then I turned the gun back to semi, limped off and saw two guys walking towards where the fight was, they looked like they had good armour on. I shot the first one a few times in the head and killed him, then the second one got me. So if I was working with others it would probably help.

You can hide but there is a time limit so that would not help forever.

You can shoot them and run, but then you can't loot them which is a big part of the game, plus you can get hit at the same time like I did so are left unable to run. If I had a sniper and a scope, I would snipe people and wait for people to run to the fight and then shoot them.

Ohh, also a suppressor would be useful.

Bernd 08/11/2022 (Thu) 05:17 [Preview] No.48471 del
Bleh... I think that's just probably actually an important part of the game, there are people that like the kind of risk involved in it.

Anyway, more on this game. Bullets seem to do next to nothing so I have to shoot people many times to kill them, one time I shot somebody 10 times with an AK-103 and it did not kill him and so I died.
I mentioned before that I fired a SMG in full auto and sprayed shots everywhere and so only maimed the person I shot at until I shot him more in semi auto mode. Most of the shots I fired in full auto probably actually hit, in the after battle report it tells you how many shots you fired and how many of those hit. I had assumed that the reason it took so long to kill people was because I was missing all the time, that's wrong, after checking these reports I noticed that I actually hit most of the time.

What this also means is that even though recoil is bad(probably too overdone than it is in real life really) people still use auto all the time because it's the only way to actually kill people in a reasonable time frame, people just spray and pray all the time.

The shops sell most of the equipment you need to run what you want but it unlocks by level, I am at tier I of IV and next tier unlocks at level 14-15 depending on the trader, so right now the best gun I can buy is a AK-74U and I can get a few attachments for it but not very good ones.
Anyway, the way to get money to buy these guns seems to revolve around the Scav gameplay, basically you can play as your PMC or you can play as a Scav with random equipment and whatever equipment that Scav brings back can be put into your stockpile so you can use it yourself or sell it. There are player Scavs and AI Scavs, Scavs spawn in a match while the match is going, usually about halfway through it seems(for most player Scavs anyway). If you shoot another Scav as a Scav you lose opinion with one of the vendors which also effects how good the equipment is that you get as a Scav is apparently. So then what often seems to happen is that you spawn into a match where most PMCs are dead or have left alread so it's just a bunch of player Scavs running around looting stuff. But from a distance it can be hard to tell who is a Scav or not and you are not going to risk shooting a another Scav because of the penalty so it seems if any PMC is still alive it would be easy for them to get the drop on player Scavs. That has happened to me, but he did not kill me so I managed to get him, but there is also another aspect to this Scav system where if you kill a Scav that killed a Scav you get more opinion so another player must have thought I had killed a Scav not a PMC so he killed me just after I killed the PMC. Another time I was shot by another Scav out of nowhere and another time I walked through a door and got shot by one, you are dealing with other players so it can be frustrating, you have no way of knowing if they are going to team kill you or not.

The maps are smaller than I thought and there are fewer of them(there were maps listed there with padlocks so I assumed I would unlock them at some point but apparently that's because they have not been made yet), PMCs and Scavs have set spawn locations as well. So learning the map is basically key to being good at this game.

Overall, it's not that good and I am not sure how much more I will play of it.

Newest Edition, with less Ghork.

First thing first:
That dude of the Primitive Technology channel and all his copycats have a great advantage: access to unlimited supply of bamboo. Unlimited to their objectives. That stuff is great, tuff as shit, light as feather, can be used to many purpose with little modification and not too much work.

I also read most of this:
I think technology and it's use are running forward and lawmakers lag behind. Those who spent any time in the past two decades on the internet have a giant heap of data about them. I think Bernd posted a video about a security eggsbert, I think he works kind of a private investigator many time cooperating with officials and he said in that video anonymizing data worth nothing it can be de-anonymized with ease, and both companies and govt agencies do.
Now this law was passed at 2016. This year the EU countries have to start implementing it. Who knows how long it takes until it finishes. The whole stuff is kinda vague (it can be modified when necessary tho), and I don't know for example how the EU can force a foreign company to do whatever? There are sanctions but what jurisdiction the EU has over a US based firm for example Facebook and how the EU will force the sanctions onto for example said company?

Big big problem is that the cardboard is not waterproof.
Rain is one thing, one is usually aware rain is coming, or it is started so have to rush out to bring the stuff inside. But the real problem is that this thing catches the wind very well, and it was able to flip the thing despite of 5 kilos of water holding it down as a weight! And then the water flowing from the barrel soaked the cardboard, and it came apart.

I think some glue and one more layer of cardboard will fix it.
Had to dry it out well, because the cardboard inside was still wet when the outside was already dry.
And somehow this needs to be waterproofed.

Cooking Gulyás reup Bernd 06/28/2018 (Thu) 07:17:27 [Preview] No. 17596 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I saw some Mexican asking for gulyás recipe on Kohl and because I don't really want to start posting there beside the World Cup I decided to reupload the gulyás cooking as the other thread is "File not found" as well. So here's with original text.

Cooking with Bernd: gulyás

I was planning to post a good gulyás cooking since day one but somehow the occasion eluded me until now. I know a Hungarobernd did this on KC main but it was regular "cooking in the kitchen" type of thread and not "over open fire in bogrács" (traditional Hungarian pot).
I couldn't do this live for technical reasons but it will be fine this way too.

Pic #1
Ingredients: meat (little bit over half a kilo, it's pork, not beef), taters (by volume I used about the double of the meat dunno their weight), onions, tomato, paprikas, black pepper in the mill, dried ground paprika in the jar with the red lid, salt in the middle, and the white wax paper on the right covers the salo (fatback).
You can also see my Mora for cutting needs and a bearly visible peace from a wooden spoon behind the meat and the potato, the masterpiece of my carving art, used for stir the food in the bogrács.
The taters are leftovers from winter, wizened but fine for our purpose. Some of the onions and the paprikas are also leftovers I utilized.

Pic #2
The initial setup. Two quarter logs at the sides and a nest in the middle for the fire itself also aligned toward the usual main direction of the wind. The rocks are there for a little draft control. Tripod to hang the bogrács.

Pic #3
Lighted a handful of dry grass, placed in the middle of the nest, then a large handful of dry twigs above, and sticks across the log above all. As these sticks burn in the middle they broke after a while and fall into the nest. The heat from the nest lights up the inside faces of the logs. The heat is very concentrated toward the nest. The cooking is going above the nest, and it really doesn't need much flames. The smoldering logs pumping up lotsa heat, only some sticks are needed to be placed inside the nest time to times. Also when a log burns through, a new can be placed there. I had several prepared.

Can't do without a bit of Syria. Tradition. Continue discussing conflicts in third world shitholes. The hot topic these days is Ukraine however.
Situation after way over a month is unsure. Russian had obvious results in the map painting department, but about how each militaries are doing the intel is unreliable. In the north changes seem to happen, previously Russian occupied settlements now under Ukrainian control again. Russians said they are withdrawing troops, Ukrainians said they're just regrouping for another attack. In the south Russians reached the Dniepr from Crimea and pushed to the east reaching Donbas, Mariupol is surrounded but not surrendered yet. Most of Luhanks oblast seems to be occupied. Clashes were had to the west over the Dnieper, up to Mykolaev and Krivoy Rog. Lots of fighting were done at Sumy and Kharkov. I think now an operational pause is going on.
Now on this livemap I see many air raid sirens going off in western Ukraine. Not sure why.

Here's a handy informational from Al Jazeera.
It shows who will suck the most in the EU, since official policy now seem to turning to give up Russian fossil fuels and replace them with... energy grass? I dunno, something oil from US companies, or oil from companies owned by US companies or something.
Also this don't seem to show the gas situation, gas as natural gas, not benzine/gasoline/diesel or what USians calls gas.
Anyway several EU countries have reasons to veto embargo on fossil fuels as weapon against Russia:
- Latvia
- Northern Hungary
- Finland
- Hungary
- Lithuania
- Bulgaria

...clandestinely, Israel-style, as I mentioned in a different context.
OTOH if beijing feels really confident that it can relatively quickly solve the issue militarily perhaps they would want to take the bait after all. Though AIUI knee-jerk reactions are quite uncharacteristic for China, and let's not forget that in this year already one other big country found itself "hooked" after misjudging the softness of the dangling bait and the animosity of the baiters at the other end of the fishing line.

I'm sure the speech-freedom gauge differs in east and west for different topics. But...
>You can get jailed for calling this thing a war.
I have heard these claims months ago. I suspect it's a fake. For example, I have seen clip from russian political talk show on TV where people call it war/vоijna. Maybe our local russian poster can clarify but seems to be BS. What does seem to be true is that one can get detained and fined for making "unauthorised" anti-war protests. Don't know if this is specifically about "antiwar protests" or about "unauthorised protests" in general, but anyway fines are apparently not high (I read about low $ hundreds) and most antiwar protest enthusiasm seems to have petered after those videos from March showing abuse/execution of rus/ldnr POW
>Russia blocks/blocked
For months before the deal mediated by Turkey, Moscow has been denying blocking non-military ships, as long as they use specific "green corridors". I'm sure it was not unconditional. For example, I have read that they wanted access to the ships so that they could be inspected for military equipment, and pic related from May has the UK MoD claiming that they wanted economic-war measures lifted.
On the other hand, Kiev has, after a long time of blaming rus for it, admitted to having deployed mines on its own shores to forestall a rus amphibious operation. This is corroborated by the UK MoD in the same pic (pixelated is some "intelligence" propaganda). In fact, at least one civilian has died after triggering a mine in the waters of an Odessa beach (vid related).
>Turkey blocks Russian ship
I know that Turkey, per the Montreux agreement, limits military ships from crossing the Bosphorus (ships from warring sides, including allied blocs like NATO, cannot cross, though those from Black Sea states can return to port). However, I don't know if non-military ships from Black Sea states can be blocked under that agreement. Maybe they aren't blocking them because I read last week about a shipment of grain from Russia to Syria seized in Lebanon after Ukraine accused it of carrying grain harvested from ukr territories under rus/lndr control.

- Last 27/7 there was a ukr suicide drone attack on the border checkpoint of the rus oblast of Bryansk. Ukr published the footage claiming they targeted some rus security service agents. Moscow said the men were actually citizens of Moldova doing some visa paperwork. Moldova's foreign affairs ministry confirmed these were their citizens: https://www.moldpres.md/en/news/2022/07/27/22005588, https://www.ipn.md/en/moldovan-dies-in-bryansk-region-blast-7967_1091320.html . One was killed immediately, the other Moldovan citizen which in that article is reported as injured has since died too.
- Kiev has ordered the "mandatory evacuation" of residents of Donetsk oblast still under their control (said to be more than 200k). They claim this is done because they cannot not provide civilians with sufficient heating in upcoming months. I suspect they actually would like to use the urban areas as a battlefield while avoiding the criticism they will get if they again do as in Mariupol with people still there. Meanwhile there are ukr soldiers who have admitted that the locals are not loyal to Kiev and are waiting for the "liberators"

>There are some drone-strike videos too, but I can't really tell if they are legitimate or older material from 2020.
It's impossible to tell. This is the problem with Ukraine drone footage too.

>About the Taiwan provocation and how Beijing would respond.
Pelosi is literally noone. Doing nothing there. She is perfect because she isn't governmental. US did not violate anything.

This doesn't mean the US said there is no Taiwan, or ROC. This just means they heard China saying that.

>they actually would like to use the urban areas as a battlefield

I don't think anybody is there for money, they are there for adventure and to defend the democratic and European Ukraine against the evil Russians, any money they get is just a bonus if they get any at all. He is getting paid though(well that is what they say), that is part of the paperwork, they are setting up a bank account for him. He has been to Bosnia during the Bosnia war but he never saw combat there, he wasn't paid much at all if anything, I don't think he expects much in Ukraine either.
It's the same reason people went to fight for the Kurds. It's something I would do as well if it was not so dangerous and I don't even care about Ukraine.

I think if somebody was only interested in the money then they would have a more realistic and objective view on it and probably decide that the risks where not worth whatever the pay was.

It seems to depend a lot on what units they join. You have the International Legion which seems like the more legitimate force, then you have numerous groups that are run by Nationalist units including ones that are run by Azov Battalion there are probably differences amongst all of those, then there seems to be units run by the SBU as I mentioned, there seem to be units set up by foreigners as well and who knows what else there is.

Anões, preciso de vossa humilde assistência, e peco-lhes que leiam meu relato até o final.

Duas semanas atrás uma depósito bateu no meu carro. Ela não tem seguro e se recusou a assumir a culpa. No entanto, fizemos um acordo: Inicialmente ela disse que pagaria a franquia do meu carro se eu incluisse ela como terceira no sinistro, e o meu seguro pagaria os dois. Disse que, para fazer isso ela também precisaria cobrir o aumento da minha franquia no ano que vem. Tudo "certo": Ela disse que mandaria o dinheiro agora dia 10. Não mandou.

Então fiz o boletim de ocorrência e prosseguiria abrindo o sinistro pro meu carro, apenas, e entro com ela nas pequenas causas depois. Eis que o marido troglodita dela me liga quarta feira, exigindo satisfacões sobre o boletim de ocorrência que abri. Expliquei que eles descumpriram com o combinado e que vou prosseguir por conta própria, bem como meus planos de manda-los pras pequenas causas depois.

Hoje, quando estou saindo de casa pra trabalhar, aparece a depósito e seu respectivo marido troglodita na portaria do meu apartamento, fazendo escândalo e me ameacando de morte, numa clara tentativa de intimidacão. Chamei a polícia, e eles foram embora antes dos PMs chegarem. Fui novamente até a polícia, com o primeiro BO, e abri um segundo boletim de ocorrência por ameaca de morte e calúnia e difamacão (pelo escândalo que fizeram na porta do meu apartamento).

Os policiais, muito solícitos, levantaram os dados completos dos dois sem eu pedir, e incluiram tudo no BO. E agora tenho os dados (RG, CPF, endereco, etc) do troglodita e sua depósito de porra.

Quero muito raidar contra esse casal maldito, e gostaria de causar-lhes alguns problemas. No entanto, não tenho muito conhecimento de como fazer e quais acões eu devo tomar. Como faria, sei lá, pra registrar uma empresa no nome deles e (obviamente) não cumprir com os pagamentos dos impostos e ônus legais que isso acarretaria? Ou pedir um cartão de crédito que dispense ativacão por telefone e fazer umas compras de extasy no nome do referido casal? Sou falho e fraco de idéias, e confesso que estou fazendo isso só porque estou tomado pela raiva e por vontade de cometer um duplo assassinato.

Toda ajuda é bem vinda.

Da pra fazer muita coisa com esses dados, se tu quiser. Acho que dividas e algo fraco. Teria que fazer algo que abalasse a estrutura moral que eles aparentam ter diante dos conhecidos deles. Algo relacionado `a cafe pilao, por exemplo, ou tortura de animais...

I have found this:
Apparently it happened more than a year ago, but the case has been "in review" since the video above was revealed. The dude in the floor was a nignog suspected of having participated in a deadly shooting. The police claimed they shot in response after he produced a gun and shot a policeman in a leg. However, this is disputed by other people who believe he was unarmed and the shot came from another police (probably that woman seen in the video)

While looking for that I found vids related.

Anões, qual a melhor maneira de esconder um corpo dentro de uma cidade? Um rapaz que namorava com minha prima a estuprou. Tenho uma garrucha velha (que todo avó de interior tem)e pretendo por um fim a vida do muleque. Não foi a primeira vez que eu já passei alguém, só nunca o fiz em um ambiente urbano. Pensei em levar ele para um passeio e terminar com sua vida em uma ponte aqui da cidade, mas tenho medo de blitz, que é certo ter por lá. São poucos os lugares de mata fechada, tão dificeis de sair quanto de entrar e caso eu tivesse que jogar no esgoto, uma hora ou outra iria fazer autopsia. Já tenho tudo em mente de como eu vou fazer, só não sei o local.

During demonstrations police usually detains people for all kinds of bs. Especially with stuff that some violence was directed against them. They always say that the demonstrators are criminals. On the basis of a couple of disorders, they arrest people as suspects, they can do it with a bunch, and try to pin those things on them. Since they were present and frequently acknowledge they were at the demonstration - or the police record them with cameras - the suspicion against them becomes well established. It doesn't matter if in the end noone gets to be found guilty (sometimes only on superior court, on municipal courts they sometimes do find someone), they disrupted the demonstration, and gave the govt bunch of material to claim how the demonstrators did illegal stuff and they just disorderly. The criminal acts that provides the excuse for intervention sometimes done by police officers in civvies.

See picrel >>47693
Those pajeets haveing a good time. To be honest like the January 6 mass.

The more farmers demonstrate the less they are on the fields working, the higher food prices rose. All these small acts add up into big crisis.

Just because the US govt aren't the good guys it doesn't mean those can be found in Moscow and Beijing.
Also being neutral for small(er) countries just doesn't work. Imagine a town without police but two rival mobs. If one doesn't extort a business, the other will.
Russia has the same imperialist mindset as the US does. Russia even owned that mindset before US could grow out the diapers. It's either naive to think that Russia would leave alone the small guys if the US won't provoke her by making those into her clients, or a purposeful Russian propaganda line. On this board I was accused being a Kremlin-bot, so I rather assume the first situation in case of you.
Same with China, and with the "separatists".
For smaller countries, the only way for neutrality would be: band together and get nukes. Or one conquers all and somehow eradicates national identities - done in such a quick pace noone can intervene or prevent them - meanwhile getting nukes.

Austria and Switzerland are Neutral(kind of) and Finland and Sweden were Neutral for a while(kind of), many nations in Africa may as well be neutral.

Russia does have the same mindset(all great powers do) but it does not have the ability to implement it. The US has the largest navy in the world of course and also the ability to rapidly deploy forces anywhere in the world as well as a global network of allies to aid them in any war and from where they can deploy forces from.

Neutrality is more feasible in a multi-polar world, not just in terms of military strength but market size as well, ideology can play a role as well.

Using Finland as an example. It was neutral early on after the war but because of the nature of the USSR and their ideology which always threatened Finland and because of the much more lucrative western market they very soon were effectively western.

Russia does not have that ideology so it's much easier to work with but the market is far smaller, China has a huge GDP but the vestiges of that ideology are still there. Neither nation can project power either(though in a world where nobody could project power neutrality would be even easier).

Exactly. Austria, Sweden, and Finland are EU members, so despite not NATO (yet), they do what America says. They aren't neutral.
Switzerland sucks the peepee of the closest and strongest anyway.
From these four Austria is the only one that not out of way btw. Many countries don't have that luxury.
>Russia [...] but it does not have the ability to implement it.
It can reach certain countries. And China others.

I'm all for Balkanization.

Hilarious, shit just made the front page of Politico.
Our PM in his speech said something liek, the Hungarian people became from the mix of autochthon people, but we don't want to become mixed race. There are obvious implications, but it is apparently about lgbt and holocaust.

>Just because the US govt aren't the good guys it doesn't mean those can be found in Moscow and Beijing.
Yeah, I'm not 12 or USian, I'm not interested in finding "the good guys".
For the rest of your reply, I'm going to interpret it as principally referring to this bit:
>Malcom Fraser: "Aus need Usa alliance for its defence but Aus only needs defending because of its Usa alliance". The same can be said of the countries gobbled up by nato in its expansion towards russia.
(That's a former aussy PM, btw) Well, I think my comment ("the same can be said...") is correct. In particular, this was/is literally the narrative peddled, for example, in the case of the Ukraine or Finland: "b-bu-but don't you know they need to invite the military apparatus of a far-away power to the borders of its designated enemy because of the threat posed by the latter?" conveniently ignoring that they are bringing about such threat by that very act.
>Also being neutral for small(er) countries just doesn't work.
It has worked for many decades. But anyway I'm not really talking about small countries. I'm talking about the geopolitical power balance, which mostly involves major countries.
>Russia has the same imperialist mindset as the US does.
>It's either naive to think that Russia would leave alone the small guys
Well, there are some differences (possibly inherent) between thassalocratic empires like the British, from whence the US empire follows, and a more typical tellurocratic empire (e.g. the Roman, Persian, Russian), but as I said, I'm not concerning myself with "the small guys". We can worry about them the day the exceptionalist empire goes back to mind its own business in its own corner of the world. And, as he >>48379 mentioned, it will be, then, arguably better for them in a hypothetical multipolar international arrangement, as they will be freer to pursue their promiscuous "multivectoring" to their hearts' content ;). Because the Russia today simply doesn't have the capability to do to "the small guys" in Europe what US can. Russia has demonstrated it will choose war rather than outright losing the "satellites" Bielorussia and Ukraine (which were more than once part of the same state and are populated by very close people) but all the propaganda about "the Russians are coming" that we hear from Atlanticist sources (e.g. both Sunak and Truss in their UK premiership pseudo-campaigns) is just that: war-time propaganda.
>if the US won't provoke her by making those into her clients
This framing is somewhat misleading. The term "client" or "client state" is typically used to describe economic dependence. By extending its military apparatus onto the borders of its designated adversaries, the US did/does something much more dangerous and threatening than simply "intrude" into "spheres of influence".
>so I rather assume the first situation in case of you.
Well, you would be wrong in either case. I have been explicit in previous discussions about the reason for my support for Moscow or Beijing in the geopolitical matters that involve them and Washington: in short, I want the sick global US hegemony replaced with a multipolar international arrangement that will provide us (Europe in general but my country in particular) with greater opportunity to exercise independence. (Of course, apart from that, I think supporting those two in their struggle to keep the Great Satan at bay also happens to be the historically-informed morally-correct position.)
>Same with China, and with the "separatists".
Among the "great powers", China is probably the farthest thing from a thassalocratic empire like the Britain and later USA. Ming China actually stopped itself from going on transoceanic conquest of colonies when it very much had the means.
