Explanation of Build 

The first few levels are rough. You are rushing Rogue to 3rd level so that you can get DEX to damage. However you are no worse than a normal rogue. You should also note thatcurrently power attack is bugged where Finesse weapons only get -1 attack +1 damage. Hopefully this is fixed soon. 

At 4th-5th level you pick up Paladin. This allows you to equip shields and is a huge buff to your saving throws (+3 Fort/Will + your CHA to all saves). Also, casters start becoming more prevalent around this time so you want those Will saves up. Don’t forget, against evil big bad guys SMITE is extrememly powerful. Sure you aren’t getting a big level bonus to damage but you are completely negating their DR.

6th level you hop back to Rogue for Debilitating Injury. I pick to lower their AC because your other abilities (see below) will be drastically reducing their attacks. But you still have flexibility.

7th level is the sweet spot where the build fully comes online. Before you are a tanky rogue with decent damage, now you are a debilitating powerhouse. Cornugon Smash means all of your attacks that hit get a free demoralize check. You are likely to succeed being your race bonus and optimized Persuasion. Enemies hit by you will be demoralized (Intimidate), Flat-Footed (Shatter Defenses), Sickened (Thug Brutal Beating), and AC penalized (Debilitating Injury) for a total of -4 Attack, -2 damage, No Dex to AC, -2 AC(-4 AC for you), -4 saving throws, -4 skill/ability checks. In addition, if your persuasion roll high enough they could outright flee in terror (effectively working like a stun with extra attacks due to Attacks of Opportunity).

8th – 11th are Fighter Levels. These are necessary to pick up your Teamwork Feats in addition to Weapon Training. Having Seize the Moment + High Dex means anytime another team member with this feat gets a crit, you get a free attack. 

Who is your teamate? When you get Amiri at lvl 1 immediately tuck away her big sword (it’s really a sub-optimal weapon) and use a falchion. Also multi-class her with 2-handed fighter and keep her that for a long time. She will still be slightly underpar of a custom built falchion user but it’s not a big deal. She should also then get Seize the Moment. She will only get 2 triggers due to her DEX but she is there to help you. At 10th level both of you will have 15-20 critical threat range and multiple attacks. Expect to trigger this teamwork feat a ton!

Weapon Training is good but way better with Gloves of Dueling (which increase it by +2 attack & damage)

12+ and it’s all gravy with extra sneak attack damage. Once you get Staggering Critical opponents hit by you could lose their full-round attack (since they can only take a standard or move action).

*note* Now as an alternative you could go STR based for better Persuasion (Due to Intimidating Prowess adding STR to CHA) and overall 2-Handed damage but would lose out on a lot of AC due to no shield and extra attacks from seize the moment due to low DEX.

Telcos and their dominance of pricing in Singapore.

This guy made and excellent discussion about Singapore Telcos.:
https://wilzworkz.wordpress.com/2017/03/08/whats-so-great-about-circles-life-and-whats-wrong-with-our-mobile-data-plans/

The point to take away, is that we need fair competition to benefit consumers. The 3 existing telcos have been in dominance for so long, they can price anyway they want and everyone follows suit to the determent of the public.

This new player www.Circle.life is coming in to shake up the industry. Although they are subletting M1’s networks, they are still shocking the industry. When my contract expires this March 2017. This new player will seriously consider shifting. I’m also waiting for Samsung’s new phone as well.

The most interesting thing is that new offering is not a 2 year contract but a monthly renewable one. This allows a user to change his phone as and when he needs to. Like when he loses his phone, or some new bling phone catches his interest.

There is the 4th telco coming in. They may be doing something interesting to gain market share. It would be interesting to see what will happen.

Paldo instant noodles

Paldo instant noodles

I found these noodles in Singapore at the Korean shop next to Cold Storage in Parkway parade. They didn’t have any other flavors for this type of cover. It tasted okay after I tried it.

 

I posted this in a forum

In about a day I found about 300+ unique IPs accessing this picture. It think that roughly translates to about the same number of unique visitors browsing the main forum for the Kpop group IOI. It also provide a host of user-agent strings which was insightful of what sort of browsers were visiting the forum. I also had many IPv6 IPs accessing the picture which was interesting too.
