States With Legal Horse Betting | States That Have Horse

DKNG - Fundamental DD Inside - DKNG

This is an example of fundamental DD that takes place at ‘smart’ money institutions based on my professional experience in IBD, Private Equity & most recently at a HF (mods can message me for proof). Not thoroughly fleshed out b/c you autists have limited attention spans, but a summary. Figured I’d take the time to give back to this community that has provided many lolz, & should be a good measuring stick when evaluating other forms of fundamental DD posted here.
NFA.
DKNG - DraftKings, Inc.: vertically integrated US mobile betting operator that also provides retail sports betting & back-end betting solutions through SBTech. Think of SBTech as the tech ‘market-maker’ for traditional sports betting, they do all the funny math to set the betting odds & seem to be working on back-end solutions for DKNG Casino
The Big Picture
Only ~2% of the ~$90Bn gambling revenues were placed online which is the lowest in the world where betting online is legal. For example, in other countries online gaming activity represents ~6% - ~52% of total gambling revenues, with ~12% being the average.
Wall Street expects online gaming revenue to be $20Bn-$40Bn within the next 10 years. For this to be achieved, the online gambling market will have to achieve a ~30% penetration rate on total country gaming revenues. There is an expectation that this is could be easily achievable given penetration trends overseas - see page 11 of this: https://s1.rationalcdn.com/vendors/stars-group/documents/presentations/TSG-Investor-Day_March-27-2019.pdf
Other catalysts include increasing adaptation of sports betting in more states. States that have both legal sports betting + online sports betting permitted: NV, NJ, WV, PA, IA. Sports betting permitted but no online: DE, MS, RI, MO, AR. Prior to COVID there was ongoing discussions across many States, especially ones with growing deficits to explore how permitting sports betting could create a fresh avenue of tax dollars. Post COVID there is an expectation that these discussions will be given extra focus as many States will be hungry for incremental tax dollars. Important to note that currently 43/50 States allow DFS, but given the small share DFS has on total Gaming Revenues, it increasingly looks like DKNG is banking on traditional sports betting for a variety of reasons, more later. There are entire articles on Google arguing this catalyst so I’ll end this here.
Digging Deeper
DKNG’s main offerings are Daily Fantasy Sports (“DFS”) products & traditional sports book products to its clients. Long story short, a metric to look for in my opinion (that is curiously not reported by management or remarked on) is the hold % in traditional gaming sector parlance or the ‘rake’ & compare it to the ‘traditional’ gaming products like sports betting & Blackjack.
For DFS: DKNG takes ~15% of the prize pool (note: used to be ~6-11% [2]). Curiously, their main competitor FanDuel also has moved up to a ~15% rake recently. Google searches show the smaller competitors have a rake in the ~13% range.
This ‘rake’ has grown ~2x in 6 years, but it has been a delicate move on behalf of management. Why? B/c the more ‘sophisticated’ DFS players (equal to autistic day traders on Robinhood) have noted this increase & based on some Googling, some have moved down market to the smaller players. As a side note, many live casino games have their rules altered to grow the Hold %. For example, Blackjack games with 6:5 payouts on 21 have materially higher Hold % than the traditional BJ rules that pay out 3:2. Given the findings so far, DKNG may not have much room to materially increase its hold % in DFS games in the near-term from current of 15%. More on this later.
Now why the fuck is this important? This is important b/c the typical sports book (ex-Parlays) have a ~5% hold %/rake. Parlays have up to a ~30% hold (which is why it’s commonly known as the sucker’s bet), & just for reference, the average Blackjack table clocks in 14.5%. What this means: Every dollar put into these games, the “House” or DKNG, will take 15% of your money for DFS games, for sports bets they will be pocketing ~5%, up to ~30% if you’re into parlays, & we’ll just use the standard 14.5% BJ hold for the DraftKings Casino platform.
So why the acquisition of SBTech & a foray into the traditional sports gambling market? As you can see previously, the illegal sports betting market is >30x the size of the current daily fantasy sports market. So it’s clear that the DFS providers including DKNG are foraying into the space to capture this user base & hopefully convert them into games that have a higher hold %, such as DFS/DKNG Casino.
As of May 2020, DKNG has achieved a 30% penetration rate on its ~4mm ‘monetized’ DFS clientele to its Online Sports Book (OSB), from the OSB+DFS clientele, DKNG has converted 50% into its DraftKings Casino platform.
Including non-monetized users, user base totals at 12mm. Based on these unit economics: every 1mm of additional users -> 333k monetized users for DFS -> 100k users for OSB -> 50k users for DraftKings Casino.
Some Numbers – Italicized/Bolded the important
Numbers that represent Risks to Long Thesis
Things to look for when going Long
- Progress of additional States legalizing sports betting – specifically, States with DFS already legalized
- Cost structure evolving to a more fixed mix vs. the mostly variable mix currently as this will be the forward figure that determines profitability
- Increasing User Base (Curr.: 12mm) -> Monetized Base (Curr.: 4mm) -> MUP (1Q’20: 0.7mm)
Share Price Target
Given the cost structure of the company, I’m going to base the price targets around Enterprise Value / Revenues (driven by MUPs & ARPUs).
Bear Case MUP: 5mm -> $20.32 - $45.73
Base Case MUP: 5.5mm -> $22.27 - $50.10
Bull Case MUP: 6mm -> $24.21 - $54.47
These MUPs imply a monetized customer base of 28mm – 33mm. At the high-end, this implies that DKNG monetized customer base will equal MGM’s current total user base.
At yesterday’s close of $43.70, DKNG is trading at 3.5x – 4.5x forward Revenues on an expected >5,000 MUPs.
Share Price drivers / considerations:
- Continued multiple expansion
- MUP Growth exceeding beyond targets
Management Team
Jason Robins, 39 – Co-Founder & CEO. Duke BA, started DraftKings from day 1 in 2011. The 2 other buddies he started the Company with are still at DKNG. Dude navigated the Company through the scandal that rocked them in ’15 & ’16, and was the trailblazer in getting DFS labeled as a non-gambling product that enabled it to open in States without a gaming designation. This shit is the stuff that gets people in history books. His accomplishments make him seem like a very competent guy. Has 3 kids now, and only ~3% economic ownership in DKNG but has 90% of the voting power through his Class B share ownership. Also he actively participates in venture investments, sitting on 10 boards.
His comp plan performance bonus target is pretty murky, but main drivers are EPS growth, revenue growth, then a bunch of margin & return metrics, along with share price returns. Overall, very open-ended & it’s safe to say as long as shit doesn’t hit the fan, he will be eligible for his max payouts year over year. I’m assuming the lawyers tried to encompass everything possible for maximum flexibility to justify him earning his max comp as long as DKNG is still around.
Since he’s got voting control of 90%, I’ll end the specific-person overview here, but want to note that they have a very bloated C-suite. 12 folks at DKNG, 8 folks at SBTech, all with C-suite designations. Whereas their main competitor FanDuel, has 3 guys with a C-suite designations & 1 EVP, but is a sub under a larger ParentCo that has its own management team of ~5 guys.
Looking through glassdoor you can see the biggest complaint among employees giving bad reviews is based on management, all of the specific issues they point out IMO are a result of a top-heavy company. Seems like a good starting point to optimize their cost structure, but given Robins' history of sticking this entire thing through with his co-founders since '11 stuff like this doesn't seem to be a part of his playbook. They’re a public company now though, so it’s going to be interesting to see going forward.
TL;DR:
If I were to initiate a position in DKNG, the stock would have to fall to the $35-$37 range for me to be a buyer of the stock, and based on this rough intro analysis I'll be considering Put options if it breaches $50. I would not touch Calls at this level.

Every Act of Season 15 RANKED

Rules are pretty simple: If they're on YouTube and got through, they're on this list. They need to be on YouTube so that I can re-watch them to build more of an opinion, and I don't have access to recording episodes to re-watch them fully for any other acts. This also excludes acts that weren't filmed or shown.
With these rules I got a list of 72 acts to rank. My process for ranking them was that I ranked all the acts in a given episode first, then once all 7 episodes had their ranked lists I combined them all to make the final list. One more thing; I'll be mentioning certain tiers I put the acts in almost like a tier list, but this is only so that you can better distinguish my opinions with certain acts. So we'll be starting with the F tier acts. So without further ado, lets get right into it with...
72. Chris and Sid - Oh dear god we are starting off terribly, but that is expected for the worst of the season. What the active f*ck was this act? Chris sings a short tune while his dog just howls in the background? The dog is not singing it just doesn't like music! It's not even in key or anything it's just howling! This is easily the worst of season 15, fortunately we can only go up from here, right?
71. Jacob Velazquez - Well we are going up, just not that far. Jacob just can't pick what he is. The audition was going all over the place. He starts with a vision board his parents probably made for him to get the sympathy vote, and while his piano skills were good enough, he then starts playing the drums for some reason? And it's not even the same song he wrote it's just drums to an already existing song! He's definitely not the worst because he can get better in later rounds if his act becomes more consistent, like if he only was a piano player because he at least does have good skills when it comes to composing.
70. Chef Boy Bonez - I'd place him higher because he (like me) has chef in his name, but this act wasn't very good so he's in F tier. If he was just a rapper with no gimmick he could score better on this but the whole eye popping thing just can't go anywhere or make him any better. Don't get me wrong, popping your eyes is an actual gift you have to be born with, which is part if the definition of a talent, but used like this just doesn't work.
So those are the 3 acts I think deserve F tier. You might think they don't, but these are my opinions and not yours. Anyways we're now onto D tier which mostly consists of acts that had below average or auditions that don't stand out. I'll also start going more rapid fire with these and only go in depth when I feel necessary.
69 (Nice). Elijah de la Motte - Nothing against the cello but also nothing memorable about this kid. Elijah doesn't stand out to me in the slightest and that's about why he's so low.
68. Jesse Kramer - Same case with Elijah, his audition was just so terribly unmemorable.
67. Thomas Day - Nothing stands out about him, just kind of a singer.
66. Celina Graves - Same deal with the past 3 acts.
65. Xtreme Dance Force - The "hype" moments of this audition included them all punching the ground and them going generic moves. Just below average dance group in a season with so many better ones.
64. Erin McCarthy - I made a joke about how god probably had a dart board he used to determine some of this seasons acts and one of the things he ended up with was an opera singer horse lady, and that joke still stands as my opinion. In other words, why?
63. Bonavega - *Chuckles* I'm in danger. I get that people like him, but why? What part of this is appealing? To me, Bonavega just felt annoying and not entertaining, which are the two thing you really don't want a novelty act to be! If you like him, good for you, I don't care.
62. Michael Yo - Weakest comedian this season. Plain and simple.
D tier is now complete. Next is C tier which mostly consists of acts I am VERY neutral towards or ones I feel are generally weaker than others in the competition.
61. Luca Di Stefano - Vocal talent that's beyond singing actually works in his case. He's not gonna get anywhere in the competition but I have enough respect for him to not put him in D tier.
60. Frenchie Baby - At the end of the day Frenchie Baby is just kind of an act. Like yep. That's a contortionist.
59. Ryan Tricks - Same deal with Frenchie Baby except this act probably won't go very far.
58. Ty Barnett - One of the more chill comedians and he got at least a little chuckle out of me.
57. Lewis Shilvock - Sure is a dancer alright.
56. Siena Uremovic - Literally just Lewis but with a blindfold.
55. Alexis and the Puppy Pals - It's a child training dogs...yep. That sure is a child training dogs.
54. Feng E - I've heard his audition was just him using 1% of his power and he is better than what he performed on Agt, but I only consider what we've seen from the act on Agt and this kid is fine enough. Will he get better later? Possibly.
53. Lightwave Theatre Company - I'm always pretty neutral towards acts like these that tell emotional stories and Lightwave is no exception.
52. Emerald Gordon Wulf - Emerald is a good contortionist. Nothing else to say here.
51. Marty Ross - Yeah he's kinda funny that's cool.
50. Jennifer and Daiquiri - Good ol' dog act. Not extremely memorable, but a good dog act.
49. Amanda LaCount - I'm not totally sure what sticks out to me about Amanda I just felt like her audition was better than the other solo dancers.
48. Voices of Our City Choir - Definitely the worst GB this season, but not absolutely terrible. I have a soft spot for choirs and this one is alright. It might not be the best choir we've ever had in all of Agt, but it's an alright one. Should it have been a GB? Probably not. That won't affect my opinion on certain acts though.
Okay C tier is done now that was cute but now we're on to the big leagues of B tier. From this point onward, I have a positive opinion on all the remaining acts, so let's start with:
47. Kameron Ross - Not something too noteworthy but a good audition regardless.
46. Chicken Scratch Sam - This guy figured out the loophole and now he's on this list. I put him at 41 because 1: I don't know where else to put him, and 2: Kinda just to piss you all off.
45. Max Major - There's definitely some kind of science to his finger trick so that's out of the question but the other trick was okay and I overall just liked him more than Ryan.
44. Florian Sainvet - Fast unfolding cd man...just a good ol' fashion fast unfolding cd man.
43. Simon and Maria - They fun. Also apparently commented on one of my posts which freaked me out but yeah they fun.
42. Daneliya Tuleshova - I've heard a lot of people say she's gonna win because she was only "singing a song that wasn't as big she can get better ohohohohohohoh". Frankly I can't see it. I don't doubt she's a good singer outside of Agt, but again I'm only counting what we saw from the act on the show, and her audition wasn't as strong as others in my eyes.
41. Resound - I don't know how I feel about these guys. I just- I don't know. I put them here because they are good but I can't say they're gonna be really- look I don't know what I'm saying here my point is that I straight up just don't know how I feel about these guys.
40. The Spyro Bros - This really does feel like Mochi's revenge. He got robbed out of his frickin' mind in season 13 and it's good we have more Diabolo this season.
39. Ninja Twins - These guys are just charming to be honest. I actually laughed during the introductions and throughout their performance because it was just so ridiculous and I loved it.
38. Brandon Leake - Similar case to Resound where I just don't know where to put this act. I always joked in my head on "what if there was a motivational speaker on Agt" and now there kind of is and it got a GB. I was just confused after that whole thing. So did he deserve the golden buzzer? Sure. At this point, I'm kinda okay with Brandon getting a GB. Odd pick for sure, but it's okay.
37. Kelvin Dukes - From here we enter my favorite part of the list that I call, "The Pit of Singers". Basically the next 9 acts are all singers that are good enough to be memorable, but not my outright favorite singers. Kelvin is a good example of this. I liked his audition and he is good, but compared to the other singers coming up, he definitely falls short.
36. Annie Jones - Another good example of what the Pit of Singers is. Just a good ol' singer.
35. Ashley Marina - I liked her audition if we forget all the dumb build up and Simon cutting songs. Her original song is pretty good in my opinion.
34. Shevon Nieto - Memorable and good enough singer.
33. Archie Williams - Big oof to this guy right now. I wasn't very fond of his audition at first, but I grew to like it. Then the whole incident with Lovely Peaches happened which I'm sure most of you guys heard about, and now I REALLY don't know how I feel about him. Personally I think this was a stunt by Lovely as she has a history of doing scams like this, and we can argue about this all day, but no matter what I'm putting him at 33.
32. Double Dragon - It took me a while to really appreciate how epic Double Dragon's audition was, like these girls have f*cking PIPES man!
31. Roberta Battaglia - This is probably the most deserving golden buzzer pick, just not my favorite golden buzzer.
Okay end of B tier, that was all fun and games but now the A tier begins and we're still in the pit of singers, are you kidding me? A tier is where the real good acts start to shine and my opinions get even less good so let's just get into it.
30. Broken Roots - Sure their audition was kinda just the same thing over and over, but it was a great thing so I can't complain.
29. Sheldon Riley - I was gonna put some edgy "This act speaks to me" kinda joke here but I couldn't make it good so yeah. Sheldon's just a really good singer. He caps off the Pit of Singers, but we still have more acts to cover so let's keep going with the list.
28. BAD Salsa - Honestly who doesn't like them?
27. Winston Fuemayor - We have very limited magic this season which makes Winston all the more appealing. He's the one magician I really like and can see going far. Also I just like the name Winston for some reason.
26. Alan Silva - I really like Alan's audition and I don't have much to say about it.
25. Shakir and Rihan - While BAD Salsa is definitely a better dance duo, Shakir and Rihan are just so damn charming that I had to put them above BAD Salsa! This act just was so sweet and warm and the moves are great and it was just great overall!
24. Noah Epps - Best solo dancer this season, period.
23. John Hastings - Funny comedian man makes good act ya dingus.
22. Alex Hooper - Honestly he deserved a second chance on Agt. His jokes were actually funny and the judges just didn't realize how good he actually was. Glad they can see more to what he's about.
21. Kenadi Dodds - This is sort of a mini singers pit where there is only 4 and these are the really good ones. Kenadi's audition was fantastic and her original song was just perfect in my opinion.
20. Christina Rae - Just because I said Roberta was the most deserving Golden Buzzer doesn't mean she was the only deserving GB. Christina definitely earned her GB. She's a really strong singer and an overall likable act.
19. Shaquira McGrath - I'm not sure if you noticed already but I have a weird soft spot for country. I don't listen to it but whenever I hear it, I have a good time. Shaquira is a prime example of this. Her audition was fun and he voice is spectacular. But like I said, this is a mini singer's pit of 4, and the fourth is...
18. Olox - ...the novelty singer, of course it is! Olox is just a fun act, and I found myself enjoying them more than any of the other singers so far! They're original and interesting and so much more! We do have 1 singer left on this list however, and we're getting to that guy later, but for now, enjoy the spotlight Olox.
17. W.A.F.F.L.E. Crew - I bet you guys we're waiting for them to show up, huh? W.A.F.F.L.E Crew might not be the best GB on any sort of level, but in an odd sense of ways, they ended up being my favorite. This is a loose reasoning held together by ribbon and string, but it hopefully justifies why W.A.F.F.L.E Crew is so high: You see, imagine if dancers on TikTok didn't do what they did for popularity, clout, or just to look cool, they did it because they had a genuine passion for dance and wanted to build a career off of it. And yeah, that's kind of what W.A.F.F.L.E Crew is. They dance, they have tricks, but they have reasons to other than just to dance. I'm not saying that every dancer this season doesn't have passion, all the other dance groups and other dancers care about what they do. I'm saying that W.A.F.F.L.E Crew is able to make a statement. They are able to show this generation of "TikTokers" what they can do with dancing if they had enough passion and determination.
BUT they aren't the best dancers this season because screw me we have 16 acts left and 6 of them involve dancing! This is where we get into the tier of legends, the S tier. This is the biggest of the big leagues! The level of talent REALLY spikes up at this point and I mean it!
16. Usama Siddiquee - By all means one of the funniest comedians this season. His delivery, jokes, and storytelling are all on point! I can see why people consider him to be the best comedian this season, but we still have a few more of them to go.
15. Pork Chop Revue - Yeah to be honest this act is only so high because of personal preference. I'm just really interesting in having pigs perform on stage. This act was one that reminded me in a sense why I like this show; it's because of all the weird acts that can happen! Pork Chop Revue just felt like a heartfelt "We know why you're still here even though almost everyone in your life reminds you daily that this show is so amazingly terrible."
14. Crystal Powell - Best comedian this season (except for one other that we'll talk about later). You might not think that Crystal was funny, but comedy is subjective and yahdah yahdah you've heard this before. Crystal was a comedian that actually had me laughing and made me engaged in her storytelling! The chair prop might not seem like much but it does wonders for this act! I've heard some people write her off as a not very good comedian, but I'm here to disagree.
13. Brothers Gage - Hype as hell harmonica duo. You heard me, hype as hell harmonica duo. Please let them go far.
12. The Divas and Drummers of Compton - Just an amazing audition overall! You got tricks, moves, drums, just crazy stuff happening!
11. Wildcats - But there can only be one superior dance group! Wildcats are amazing and just barely missed out on the top ten, but they really do deserve being this high! What ruins this act is the GOD AWFUL editing they did for it! That isn't the act's fault by any means, but by god the editing on this act and even this season in general in TERRIBLE! Aside from that inconvenience, The Wildcats are an amazing act overall!
10. Malik DOPE - We are FINALLY in the top ten. In other words, my ideal finals for this season. We're still in S tier mind you, but we'll have a different tier in a while. Kicking off the top ten is Malik DOPE. This guy, is amazing! Malik is so much in this act. He is a performer when he is on stage. He has a show. He has, talent. There is so much to like about him. He is a fan favorite this season and I can't argue with that. Judging by past patterns in this show's history, Malik might get stuck at the quarter or semifinals, but god do I hope he doesn't.
9. Bone Breakers - To you guys, Bone Breakers might seem like an odd pick for number 9, and it is. Even to me, Bone Breakers seems like a odd pick. They do have originality and energy, but those alone don't seem to be very good reasons to have them high after the other 2 contortion acts this season were put so low. I might not have a very solid reason for putting Bone Breakers at number 9, but I'll get my opinions straight somehow.
8. Bello Sisters - I just love acts like these tbh. Bello Sisters are an all around fantastic act. My reasons for having them up here are similar to the reasons I like Messoudi Bros last season. They are exciting, they are thrilling, they are a display of strength. This group has a lot better reasons to be up here compared to Bone Breakers. But these two aren't the only group acts I have in the finals, I also have one more to show.
7. JD Marching Band - Remember how I kinda glossed over my reasons for liking Wildcats and Divas and Drummers of Compton? What if I did that again but with this act............JD Marching Band is fun as hell.
6. Muy Moi Show - This act is all around just so dang good. I love acts that have a good street performer vibe to them. Acts like Malik DOPE, W.A.F.F.L.E Crew, and this one! Muy Moi Show is entertaining on so many levels. The fact he had Terry be the one to smash the cement block also kinda adds something to this. Muy Moi Show is just a fun and enjoyable act overall!
"Wow u/ChefMatthews865, you sure have a lot of acts in S tier! Are you really going to finish off the remaining top 5 in this tier and lump them all together?" NOPE! We have now unlocked the Double S tier, named the SS Tier. These are my top 5 acts of this whole season! Let's just get right into it...
5. Wesley Williams - A lot of this season's best acts are it's danger acts, and Wesley is no exception! This is the one danger act this season that actually had me thinking is could go insanely wrong, but he pulled this off like it was nothing! Wesley's audition was so incredible and jaw dropping and endearing, and basically everything I could ask for from a danger act. This is what the best danger acts are; no crazy dramatic explanation or stupid overproduction, just the performers and the true risk of death.
4. Nolan Neal - Of course I'm going to have at least one singer in my own ideal finals and it just had to be Nolan. He is by far my favorite singer this season. I've already gone over my bias towards country singers, and yeah I guess Nolan isn't a perfect fit, but I just love his voice and original song. The song he sang was one that actually hit me, like holy heck it was amazing! I'm trying to stretch out what I have to say about my finalists, but really, they're just amazing acts and that's all I really have to say about them. Funny how I had so much about W.A.F.F.L.E Crew but not as much for these finalists. Granted, W.A.F.F.L.E Crew took more reasoning to go through as to why they were so high so that's part of it and WAIT A MOMENT I'm only typing this part so that you guys think I have more to say about Nolan! But no, I just think he's a really damn good singer.
3. Demented Brothers - Ladies, gentlemen, distinguished guests, it is with full enthusiasm that I tell you that Demented Brothers, an act that probably won't even show up to judge cuts and was treated as a joke audition, cracked the top 3! Demented Brothers are the funniest comedians this season has! They made me laugh so hard when I first saw them and they still made me chuckle now! You might think to yourself that "well they can't have a vegas show if they win that couldn't work!" but when you think about it, their act is actually similar to ones like Tape Face or The Blue Man Group, two already Vegas shows! All in all, Demented Brothers are just a funny, ridiculous, and just goofy act that I had to put in the top 3!
2. Vincent Marcus - Each season when I pick my favorite act, my second favorite always feels like the second in command of some sort. In season 13 it was Samuel J Conroe and in 14 it was Messoudi Brothers. This season's "second in command" is Vincent Marcus, and with a title sounding like that, you'd think I'd have a very good reason for it, right? Well this time around, let me tell you that I really don't. My main reason for liking Vincent so much is honestly just my bias towards impressionists. I Think they're really cool on how they can imitate someone's voice or a certain character's voice, and they're probably my favorite act type on all Got Talent shows. Vincent is really no exception. Sure I might not know exactly all the rappers her impersonated, but for the ones I did know, this audition was amazing! I hope the best for Vincent in this competition.
Well we have one spot left. Some of you may have been keeping track of who I haven't said yet and already know who he is. This act became my favorite the moment I say his whole audition, and with my preferences of certain acts and the criteria I set for this list, he's a perfect number 1.
NUMBER 1. Brett Loudermilk - And yes saying "NUMBER" in all caps was necessary since I can't type "1. " without starting a list. But anyways, Brett Loudermilk is my (current) favorite act in Season 15 of America's got Talent. When you look at what I liked and disliked about certain acts, you can see why this act fits so perfectly. He shows his skills of being a performer, he's entertaining, he's funny, he's just an amazing act. I did also say that some of this season's best acts are danger acts, and he even fits that just fine! Heck, he swallowed 3 swords at once as a quick improv trick that he had never done before then! You might be thinking to yourself "He only got to show some of what you're saying because the judges kept messing with him!" and to that I say to you blind dimwitted baboon, "eh, yeah you have a point." I will admit, parts of what Brett showed to us came from the judges messing with him. And I could try to find some weird counter argument to this, but that'll just stretch out for way to long. So maybe if the Judges just went with what Brett had planned it wouldn't be my number one pick. However, we live in the timeline where the judges did mess with him, and it all worked out because he became my number 1 favorite act of Season 15.
Congratulations, you made it to the end! Or perhaps you just skipped ahead to see my top picks or just so you could comment on how your favorite is at the bottom, who the heck cares! This list was a pain at times to make, but at the end of the day, it was all very fun and well. I've seen so many different opinions about the acts of season 15, which goes to show how unexpected this season will be! That was the main issue with last season on how we all knew Kodi Lee was gonna win right after the first episode. But these varying opinions come at the cost of me basically guaranteeing that i'll get flamed in the comments for having Bonavega close to the bottom, or how 6 of the 10 finalists are solo male acts, or how W.A.F.F.L.E Crew is my highest rated GB, or how I somehow put Voices of our City Choir too high when it was at 48, or how that- you get the point I'm getting flamed no matter what. It's 1:35 am as I write this so I'm gonna go to sleep at let you guys fight in the comments. Peace out my doods.

(Unofficial) Offline TV Minecraft Timeline

Hello, this is my unofficial timeline of (almost) everything that has happened in minecraft so far. there are omissions such as mentioning mining trips or "rhiga not dying in his "welcome house", and toast dying instead", or the random deaths that occured in numerous raids, infilit's "fishing farm", the parrot incidents, ItsValkyrae diamond blocks and yes there are definite mistakes and/or assumptions i.e. i didn't see DisguisedToast1 capture a skeleton horse, but it was seen later in a stream with fuslie, so i added it in.
I'm sure this are other issues as well, and i'll try to amend them as they get pointed out. Thank you for reading!

My Personal Market Research & Statistics in 2020: Countries That Gamble the Most

My Personal Market Research & Statistics in 2020: Countries That Gamble the Most
The gaming sphere is so different and immense that it is divided into many structures and substructures. For example, games can be divided according to their type, capabilities, gambling, devices, technology, etc. But what is more remarkable is the appearance of statistics in games, when you can see and understand many nuances with your own eyes. So, let's talk about gambling research and statistics in 2020.
Throughout its existence, gambling has been constantly subjected to various pressures from the law, states, and opponents of this activity. And the first step is to talk about the most important thing in the gaming industry, namely, legality.
There are several countries where gambling is allowed. This business is closely monitored by special authorities, subjecting the gambling activities of companies to various frameworks and rules. On the one hand, some laws can be very depressing, but compliance with them allows companies to legally and transparently offer their content to the consumer - and as a result of legality and licensing, the company ensures safety for the user and gains trust from him. There are also countries and their areas where games are partially allowed or have more severe rules.
https://preview.redd.it/k3c15lhb7eb51.jpg?width=625&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c5d00e3ca7c045288c9f4332079ec208a496814d
The main countries where you can gamble are:
  • Australia;
  • The United States;
  • Canada;
  • New Zealand;
  • The UK;
  • China (Macau).
But it is highly recommended to check the legality of gambling for money in your area, the rules and laws change quite often. Often online casinos have a separate page where you can check this.
https://preview.redd.it/bwky69rc7eb51.jpg?width=433&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=11ab101087def28200b4ed2c4e31aa6992b395fe
The most popular gambling games in the world are casino games (mainly slot machines and roulette), sports betting (mainly horse racing), and poker. It's also easy to see the big difference between playing ages between the United States and the UK. In the first country, young people play more, as in the second, those who are over 55 years old. This may be due to many factors, at least mentality and freedom of choice. Note that the world's most famous gambling capital Macau wins in terms of income per visitor, and the biggest losers are in Australia.

Australia
More than 6.8 million Australians are considered to be players who play in the country - this is approximately 39% of the total population. Australian people love to play, most of them love to gamble on portable devices that they can take with them, such as a mobile phone or tablet.
78% of players are able-bodied adults 18 years of age or older, and the average playing age is 34. Women and men play equally in the same amount, that is, 50/50, although earlier women players were 4% less than men.
Australians play pokies mostly for fun, and some older people play to train their thinking and improve their brain function. Residents are not against betting and consider them very useful for the economy and development of the country.

USA
As you know, the most common place for gambling in the United States is Las Vegas, but do not forget about Atlantic City and the water casinos, which are legalized in Louisiana and Illinois. Online betting is available for almost all states. Almost 65% of the entire adult population of the country, one way or another, play games, mainly on their smartphones.
More than $ 80 billion is the total value of the gambling industry in the country. Most of the people who play are mostly in the 18 to 30 years old area. 15% of all residents of the country play at least once a week. Mostly preferences are for online casinos, but many players love old school and play in land-based casinos. Americans love big win and impressive jackpots, especially progressive ones, which can easily reach up to $ 20 million.
https://preview.redd.it/rscu153i7eb51.jpg?width=607&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=876f3cac692bfc81e7d94dee194fa0b24d9e6bcf
UK
In the United Kingdom, more than 46% of the country's population gamble and at least several times a month. Players prefer different strategies for their pastime and use handheld devices, but there are also a large proportion of those who still prefer a computer for their gaming sessions.
The older generation plays more in the country. These are able-bodied adults who are 55 years old and older. Most likely this is due to a large amount of free time and the possession of significant finances, which can be easily used in online casinos. Players prefer online casinos 10 times more than in other countries, but there are still more than 250 land-based casinos in the country. To a large extent, the British know how to play to win significant sums. They use the strategy of maximum possible bets on the same game regularly.

Canada
More than half of the Canadian population gamble and their percentage is growing every year along with the development of online casinos and the availability of gaming content. The biggest number of residents of the country prefer casual games, they quickly learn how to play in various slots, which also increases the number of new players at lightning speed. Also, Canadians like to use different tips for choosing a game or strategy, for example, such as the one here https://freeslotshub.com/offline-slots/
78% of the country's online gamblers are male, and the average age hovers 35 and a half, although almost a decade ago, he was with the index 45 years. The legal age for gambling in Canada varies from province to province, some from 18 and others from 19. The average annual spending per average Canadian on betting is over $ 17 billion, and every year the figure is growing by about 5%.

Other Countries that Gamble
Various forms of the gambling industry are legal and regulated in many places: in the countries of the European Union, Asia, and countries around the Caribbean, but they have much stronger control and rules from the state.
  • 44% of Singaporeans aged 18 and overplay.
  • Almost every 9th German player.
  • More than 31.5 million visitors to Macau per year.
  • Spain registers about 3.9 million new players every year.
  • Japanese gamblers spend over $ 31 billion in casinos annually.
https://preview.redd.it/47fdp0te7eb51.jpg?width=436&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5452d58b2a724e846772b57458aa9019b3c530f2
World statistics easily show that approximately 26% of the world's population regularly gamble and more than 17% of them play online.
The gambling industry is growing and thriving, over time the income of companies that are involved in the gaming industry will grow at lightning speed. To some extent, the development of technologies provokes this growth, because experienced players have simple and convenient access to gaming content, and new ones have the opportunity to try content for free without any risk of losing real money.

Compilation of Spoilers for GOT Episodes 4-6

Note: A lot of people are getting too upset/angry in the comments but this was highly requested by the users so why I compiled it. To be clear, these are leaks that could be true and each are cited individually. But people like Summaries so there is one. Believe all, some, or none of the content but it for you to decide.
Date Changes
May 16th  New information from Cleganebowl leaker (Source 8) henceforth known as SuperMachoChiChiMan. Outline of final episode and context about Jon's ending. Major Summary update. Q&A might result in slight updates/clarifications to the Summary. (If source is up to it, more questions will be answered tomorrow).
May 15th Source 1 had an entire post, not a single comment. All under May 12th section so Summary slightly updated but I don't know what to make of the "faces of the dead" part. New unconfirmed source at the bottom, doesn't add much but a possible scene in KL post conquering.
May 14th  Clarification from afraidpart (Source 1). 1 Bullet point added and summary updated.
May 13th  We were 95% right about Episode 5. One minor part might have been edited out from Source 1, afraidpart. (Cersei's flashback to blowing up the Sept). All other leaks and plot points 100% right. Spanish spoilers debunked (we told ya) and Cleganbowl updated to Source 8. Summary updated to only show Episode 6.
May 11th Changed "Parts" to "Sources" in the titles. (e.g. "Part 1" is "Source 1") Expanded Source 1 as they had a post also from 1 month earlier. Therefore the Summary was updated with this information. Slight formatting and typo corrections. Huge Q&A added to Source 3 (throwaway5873421 ). Summary updated.
May 10th  Added one bullet point (more info) to the Cleganebowl leak at bottom. Slightly expanded "Spanish Spoilers" to highlight their differences from our leaks. Slight formatting changes like putting this in a table.
May 9th  Part 3 entirely re-worked. It was a re-posted source, not the original. Original adds ending to series and omitted parts about Sansa/Tyrion. Two sources added on bottom not part of the Summary. ("Spanish Leaks" and "Cleganebowl") Don't meet our standards. But the Cleganebowl screenshots match the new info in Part 3
May 5th  We were 100% right about Episode 4 and both summaries were correct. The spoiler summary has been updated to just spoilers for episodes 5 and 6. Sources citations and summaries remain unchanged
May 3rd  None. Post created

A. Summary

People have had very strong reactions to how the season likely ends. Last chance...

Jon, Davos and Tyrion are walking through the aftermath of Kings Landing. Tyrion walks through what's left of the castle and sees Jaime's hand so he starts to uncover the rubble and he confirms both Cersei and Jaime are dead. They find Grey Worm and his men they have Lannister Soldiers trapped and they're about to kill them. Jon trys to tells Grey Worm to stop. Grey Worm tells Jon that its the queens orders. Jon and Tyrion are upset. At some point Dany is walking down stairs and Jon sees her and the dragon is behind her and it looks like she has giant dragon wings. Then they cut to Dany giving a speech pretty much saying how she freed the people from Kings Landing and the new goal is freeing the rest of the world. Dany turns to Tyrion and tells him he committed treason. Tyrion tells her that she killed thousands of innocent people and he takes off the hands pin and throws it. Dany sends him to prison.
Tyrion tries to convince Jon to turn on Dany. His family will never be safe because it threatens Dany's legitimacy. He's also convinced by Tyrion that his family will never be safe because he presents a threat to her rule. Jon goes to see her and she sitting on the Iron throne alone and John tells her that she needs to stop this madness and that Grey Worm killed the Lannisters army from the previous scene. Dany tells Jon that she's doing it for the people. Jon pretends to understand her. When her guard is down he stabs her with his dagger. Drogon comes and is standing over her body and he burns or melts the Iron throne and carries her away with his feet.
Grey Worm has Tyrion and Jon as his prisoners. The council is (led by Sansa) tells Grey Worm to release Jon back to them but he refuses. Tyrion is in front of the council as a prisoner of Grey Worm he isn't making decision he is content with being a prisoner he makes suggestions only. (apparently been in prison for weeks) That's when Tyrion says that the new King or Queen should decide what happens to Jon. Sam suggest for a democratic vote for the new king. Tyrion calls that idea stupid. The council votes and decide Bran should be the King. Bran picks Tyrion as his hand. Tyrion tells Jon that his punishment is going back to the Wall and join the Nights Watch. (Tirion said Greyworm wanted him dead and Sansa wanted him back home so nobody is getting what they want, it's a fair compromise.) Grey Worm accepts Jons punishment. He doesn't bend the knee leaves with his troops and Dothraki on ships to go free Slave cities. They show Tyrion leading the council. Jon says goodbye to Sansa and Arya. Arya tells them she isn't going back home. She's going to explore whatever is west of Westeros because that's where no one has been. The final scene is a Closing montage. You see Arya on a ship, Sansa ruling Winterfell and Jon, Ghost, Tormund, and a bunch of Wildlings leaving the Wall and heading north
Council Members: Samwell Tarly the Grand Maester, Davos Seaworth Master of ships, Bronn Master of Coin and High Garden, Brienne (not sure) Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, Yara Greyjoy Lord of Iron Islands, Robin Arryn Lord of Kingdom of the Mountain and the Vale, Gendry Baratheon Lord of Storm's End, Yohn Royce Lord of Runestone, Hound doesn't get mentioned., Podrick is wheeling around Bran and he protects him. Ellaria Sand doesn't get mentioned. Sam mentions that they seen Drogon in some location but aren't sure. Bran just says, "ill look for him" They don't have a Master of Laws and Whisperers. Tyrion is looking for the right people to fill those spots.
  • Alternate Ending: (less likely) Tyrion's Trial: (Friki is the only one advocating this) Tyrion's trial in the dragonpit is a major scene and has no Jon, Dany, or dragons. Sir Davos is present not wearing the Hand of the King pin (he wasn't in 8x04 either) along with all 3 stark children. Samwell Tarly, Brienne, Robyn Aryn, Grey Worm, an unknown man wearing golden clothes (likely Dornish), and another unidentified man (an older short bearded one dressed in green) will be there as well. Bran will flash back to season 1 where Tyrion Lannister told Catelyn Stark, "I never bet against my family". Tyrion is filled with anger and resentment against the people of Kings Landing because he saved them against Stannis and they still turned on him. Thinks people of King's Landing deserved it. He saved them and were ungrateful (trial of Joffrey's murder) Will fall to his knees in the middle of the speech dragged down by the weight of his actions. His death was filmed in studio so not sure how he dies.
  • Combined Endings: Both Endings Combined: King's Council seems most likely as multiple scenes can be cheaply shot however few will have graphic effects or sound added. Tyrion will give a speech answering his betrayal like in the "Alternate Ending" but instead of being killed, is spared, and joins the King's Council. This would fit with the current ending and besides Tyrion's death, not contradict it.

B. Spoilers used in Summary (with citations)

(all predictions below were made before the episode aired)
Source 1 afraidpart (Confirmed some 8x03, 8x04, and 8x05plot points in advance. Two parts either edited from 8x05 or possibly wrong (Cersei's flashback and dragon eating horse)
11 months ago afraidpart was right about the Dragon breathing blue fire coming out of it's neck and Jon having to fight it and later 8x04 details. Their Part 1 doesn't add anything to below and they originally thought Jon and Dany both live but corrected it to Dany dying 10 months ago.

Part 2 from 11 months ago

  • Cersei and Jaime are holding each other when they die.
  • Revised that Dany does die.
  • Only one dragon left, something to do with a scorpion needle.
  • Last 3 Episodes are in front of KL
  • Undead are dealt with in first 3 episodes.
  • Cersei makes a meat shield of all the innocent people to stop them from coming in.
  • Dragon blast through all the people
  • Arya is useless
  • Scene with horse ripped in half by dragon
  • Cersei is watching the dragon coming in and Qyburn suggests they should leave.
  • Cersei flashacks where she blew something up in the city when the dragon is blowing things up
  • Hound and his brother fight and they end up both dying in fire by falling in. Hound finally takes the helmet off The Mountain.
  • Cersei goes into the chambers where you first see the "catapult things".
  • Jamie shows up and they hold each other as everything crumbles.
  • Dragon enters throne room and "fucks shit up" and melts Iron Throne.

Part 3 from 10 months ago

  • The Mountain kills Missandae by beheading.
  • John Snow finally sees Arya after they get to the throne room. After Cersei and Jaime die he finally sees her.
  • They have these shards the're using to kill everything undead
  • Undead dragon is trying to kill people and when it breathes fire the flames are coming out of its neck because it has been hurt. He thinks Jon Snow kills that dragon.
  • Daenaerys speech infuriates people and Tyrion tries to resign as hand of the Queen. (throws pin on the ground)
  • Danaerys dies and they believe Jon to be the one to stab her in the throne room and as she is dying she goes to touch the throne. The (presumably last) dragon flies away with her body.

May 12th Post

  • At some point Dany is walking down stairs or something and Jon sees her and the dragon is behind her and it looks like she has giant dragon wings. Uh, not a spoiler, but it's cool apparently.
  • Dany doesn't get to actually sit on the throne. She touches it though.
  • I don't know. The throne is melted by the dragon after [Danys] killed I think, so I don't know if before that anyone actually sits on it, maybe they wanted it to be dramatic and have no one sit on it. Or maybe someone sneaks in a sit, like a quick little sit just for shits and giggles, who knows.
  • "There's some sort of battle where there were the faces of the dead or something"...I think he meant there was a battle where there were 'faces of the dead' (googled it: hall of faces, maybe) or something...might have already happened?
  • Tyrion sits at the table or 'council' or something at the end? He seems to think this was cool or like, a reference to the beginning or something.
  • Retracts the "Jon Snow finally sees Arya" and says he can't go into it but was just wrong.
Source 2: spoiler_throwitaway (Confirmed 8x03 plot points in advance)
This was from 5 months ago.
They nailed a lot in Episode 3 so this is not a fake but they had little to offer for upcoming episodes.
  • It is once again likely Dany is killed by Jon Snow. They heard by word of mouth that Dany died from a friend on another set but all accounts point to Dany dying.
Source 3: throwaway5873421 (Nailed 8x04 a week early and 8x05 as well)
(Thanks to KaySen762 who sleuthed it out over on /freefolknews in this comment. Expanded detail from Q&A can be found in their post.
So originally I was referred to an industry forum with this information. That wasn't the real source and they modified the very end with their own theory (or combined it with another). There is nothing about Sansa scheming with, or against, Tyrion. The real user is throwaway5873421 who has since deleted their account. (Here are the screenshots) The big thing is they conflict on is whether Tyrion dies or not. (Part 4 claims Tyrion dies) The death was not filmed but Friki was very confident of this. Could be two endings? Don't know.
  • Euron's fleet takes down Rhaegal.
  • Jaime betrays the North. Missandei is captured.
  • Dany's army captures Jaime. Brienne tries to talk to him but he refuses.
  • Sansa tells Tyrion about Jon's lineage. Tyrion tells Varys.
  • Varys betrays Dany because he thinks Jon would be a better ruler.
  • Cersei has Missandei executed.
  • Dany has Varys executed. Dany assaults King's Landing and it's one-sided as hell.
  • Tyrion begs her to show mercy but she refuses.
  • Tyrion frees Jaime to try to get Cersei out of the city.
  • King's Landing gets wrecked in the battle. Drogon burns Euron's fleet.
  • The Hound fights his brother. They both die.
  • Jaime fights Euron and kills him, but Jaime is mortally wounded.
  • Jaime makes it to Cersei and they die together.
  • Dany is executing everyone in King's Landing. Jon and Tyrion are upset.
  • Dany has Tyrion arrested to be executed for freeing Jaime.
  • Tyrion tries to convince Jon that his family will never be safe because his lineage makes him a threat to Dany's rule.
  • Jon tries to talk to Dany but she justifies her actions.
  • Jon pledges himself to Dany but then stabs her, then surrenders himself.
  • A council gets formed to decide who the King should be. Tyrion gives a speech and everyone votes on Bran to become King. The end.
  • In the epilogue, Jon takes the black again for killing Dany. Arya leaves. Sansa rules the North. Bran oversees his council of Tyrion, Davos, Sam, and Bronn.
  • From the Q&A: Jaime fights Euron and Euron dies. Tyrion is arrested to be put on trial, not just killed. Jon definitely takes the black and returns North. Seems King Bran has a part in that decision. Jaime shows up to get Cersei out of the city, she has a speech about just wanting the baby to survive. Jaime says the baby never mattered, just them and that's when they die together. Mountain gets his helmet knocked off and looks dumb. Hound tackles him off a ledge and both land in a fire and burn to death.

Q&A from throwaway5873421 on 11 May (now deleted)

  • Was wrong about Jamei's betrayal. Scenes were out of order. No sounds so seemed the scene with Brienne was a betrayal. Seems Jaime meanders down now. You'll see a lot of the Jaime stuff, like him getting captured on the way to KL, happen next episode... well, actually, all the Jaime stuff, since he dies
  • The Lannisters aren't burned alive, just building collapse.
  • Heavy dialogue with Cersei, not sure about the surrender. Not really much she can do with the scorpions taken out, the iron fleet scorched, and the Golden Company slaughtered. Jaime finds her after.
  • Euron initiates the fight.
  • On Jon killing Dany, he tone of it is very tragic. It's kind of like she's completely consumed by madness and he's saying how much he loves her and he's loyal to her, then he stabs her when he gets close enough. It's obviously traumatizing for him to do because he does love her.
  • Why Jon kills her? At that point Jon is horrified by what Dany has done to King's Landing, and she gives speeches about how she'll keep doing it to free slaves from their chains. He's also convinced by Tyrion that his family will never be safe because he presents a threat to her rule, so he's motivated by that as well, I'm sure.
  • After Dany takes KL, Dany gives a speech about freeing slaves across the world, etc. Some scenes where characters are reflecting on the devastation she's caused. Some scenes where they're deciding how to handle Tyrion, who's a prisoner. If it does happen in episode 6, there's probably 40-50 minutes of buildup before Jon actually commits to killing Dany.
  • Not sure what was filmed in Dragon Pit.
  • Not sure on Vary's betrayal. Tyrion gets arrested because he frees Jaime to try to save Cersei, I think. His arrest definitely happens after that and there's no way that it's not a factor in it
  • Unless they filmed alternate scenes where Tyrion dies and invested in post-production to polish those scenes with ADR, CGI, editing, etc for some inexplicable reason to throw off a tiny minority of the viewer base, Tyrion lives and will be on Bran's small council.
  • Jon and Greyworm fight the Golden Company together, and Jon surrenders to the Unsullied after killing Dany, but I don't recall any big fight scene between them. I haven't seen Every Single Scene, but I can't think of where one would fit, either. Maybe if Jon prevents Greyworm from killing someone during the sack, but I didn't watch anything like that myself.
  • On the "bells" triggering Dany...not really sure because I didn't have audio for a lot of those scenes... if there's bells, I doubt the "bells" themselves made Dany go crazy. That feels like a misinterpretation, to me, especially since I misinterpreted some scenes myself. Seems more likely, based off what I've seen, that she's not willing to entertain the idea of surrender, not that the bells in particular triggered something in her
  • Jon doesn't kill Dany in a moment of madness. It's more like she becomes hellbent on a particular mode of justice that Jon realizes he will not be able to discourage.
  • I didn't see any wildfire, but it's possible that I wouldn't have, or maybe I did and just conflated it with all the dragon fire. Didn't seem like anything like Battle of the Blackwater, at least... Definitely lots of dragon fire to go around, though. Drogon goes HAM on King's Landing.
  • In the epilogue, the unsullied leave to cross the sea and start liberating slave cities on their own, because that's Dany's plan before Jon kills her -- she has this big speech scene, after sacking King's Landing, where she's talking about wrecking the world, liberating all of the slaves from their masters.
  • When they're deciding who to elect as king, Sam suggests holding a democratic election and the other nobles laugh at him. That's before they vote on Bran.
  • The Golden Company gets absolutely wrecked by the Unsullied.
  • Arya tries to save civilians while KL is being sacked but fails, and leaves.
  • Dany's whole plan for every combat situation is "let Drogon handle it," including the scorpions, which works fine for some reason even though she lost a dragon to one last episode.
  • Cleganebowl: They both topple into the fire together, and you do see him without his helmet.
  • On Jon taking the black: I'm really unclear about why Jon takes the black, but it seems more like he makes the decision himself, or that he makes the decision in conjunction with other people. It doesn't seem like he's forced to do it, or at least not that he's doing it against his will. He's pretty defeated after killing Dany. I don't know 100% about Jon's epilogue but he's not just going north to just retire out in the wild, it's definitely related to the Night's Watch. Taking the black is what makes him no longer a legitimate heir to the throne.
Source 4: FrikiDoctor (Long time leaker, never wrong in past seasons, and right up to 8x01. Wrong about who killed NK (said Jon). Got threatened by HBO and Youtube wrongful copyright strikes for spoilers)
These are the Friki leaks from 7 months ago. (English Video 1 from September 2018 & Part 2 follow up from Sept 2018.)
Friki nailed 8x01 scene for scene and was wrong on who killed the Night King and how many episodes Jaime appeared in (it was more of a guess based on contract pay). But he has repeatedly been an excellent source for past season and Night King was his first mistake.
  • The treason/betrayal scene will be revealed with 5 characters involved: Jon, Sansa, Dany, Arya, and Tyrion.
  • Tyrions trial in the dragonpit is the most important plot twist and took 5 days to film. Jon and Dany were not present.
  • Tyrion is supposed to die, most shocking, and most important part of the plot twist in the season. and this is part of bittersweet ending. He doesn't know what Tyrion did to put him on trial.
  • It was filmed by "Wolf" unit which does all the Stark and Northern scenes in Belfast. ("Dragon" unit does all the Southern and Daenary's scenes)
  • Fake action scene between Unsullied and Lannister soldiers in the dragon pit as misdirection. Meant to deceive us and the action scene was never filmed. No stuntmen, green screens, props, or walker extras were used in the dragonpit (so no dragons) It is an intimate and clean scene. No CGI. There will be some snow but most has melted meaning Winter is over when Tyrion is being judged.
  • Sir Davos is not wearing the Hand of the King pin and overseeing the trial alongside Sansa Stark, Arya Stark, and Brann Stark. Samwell Tarly will be there and becomes Branns best friend. Brienne of Tarth will be there and even Robyn Aryn alive and present. Grey Worm will also be present.
  • Two new characters will be there. A man wearing golden clothes (likely a Dornishman) and an older short bearded one dressed in green.
  • A few days later a fan translation said that Friki confirmed Yara was filmed there.
  • Brann Stark will use a "Jedi Mind trick" and take us back to the first Season. Like with Littlefinger. Recall something Tyrion said to Catelyn Stark when she had him a prisoner and riding to see her sister. One sentence/quote: "I never bet against my family". Once a Lannister, always a Lannister.
  • Tyrion will say the people of King's Landing deserve it. Full of angeresentment because he saved them and they discarded him(remember trial for Joffreys murder) In the middle of his speech he will fall down on his knees dragged down by the weight of his actions and there is no "trial by combat" escape. (Tommen forbid them)
  • Does not know how Tyrion dies. His death was filmed in studio, not Seville.
  • Gendry and Jaime Lannnister did not film in these scenes. He thinks Jaime will die around episode 4, or only appear in 4 films, based on contract pay.
  • Kit Harrington's body double was sent to Seville and did nothing as a red herring. As well as Cersie, Jacquen Hagar, Yohn Royce of the Veil and this name I couldn't understand pronunciation (it was "the Waif"). All did nothing and were meant to deceive.
  • Rumor While they are judging Tyrion, Winterfell is being reconstructed.
Source 5: ninjapancake10 (The Walking Dead Spoiler Group. Rarely wrong and the user has a good track record for spoilers and right about 8x05)
Part A. Walking Dead spoiler group vouches for someone leaking GOT.
  • Something happens to make the Unsullied go bat shit crazy. They rampage kill men, women, and children. Might be related to Missandei.
  • Tyrion is arrested on Dany's command but does not know his fate at this point. Though he wasn't seen again after this event from the source.
  • Cersei does die. Was not told if it was by Arya or if it’s Arya disguised as Jamie when asked.
  • Dany turns evil and that the actual ending is bittersweet.
  • When asked if Jon kills Dany and the Iron Throne is destroyed. Source said that it was the closest anyone has guessed.
  • Source asked what will happen to Bronn? It was suggested that he’d play a pertinent role.
Part B: Walking Dead Spoiler Group
  • Kings Landing is devastated by the attack. The ramparts that were on either side of Cersei and Missandei are burnt to a crisp.
  • Cleganebowl happens, but source does not know the outcome.
  • Source hinted that Jaime might kill Euron.
  • Pyrotechnics team tested fuel that glowed green. So wildfire is perhaps coming back into play?
Source 6: Screenshot from 8x04 trailer
Dorne and House Dalt appear to be taking part in fight for Kings Landing.
(In hindsight, the yellow chips were the Golden Company) There is mention of a new Dornish prince and he might appear in Episode 6 according to Friki leaks (yellow clothed man)
Source 7: gotit1111 (called 2 episodes correctly in season 7 and 8x04/8x05)
From gotit1111, "Missandei gets her head cut off execution style and Gold Company takes out on of Dany's dragons." For those who don't know who this user is; He gave us details of the first 2 episodes of season 7 a week before they aired. Before friki.
  • Pre-Episode 05 Part A - "So got some info. Looks like it confirms some of the leaks mentioned above. Varys dies next episode (Dany burns him alive), Dany and Unsullied fuck up kings landing and they begin to surrender but the surrender bells that sound off in a tower literally "break" Dany mentally and she goes pure mad targaryan. It sounds like it is setting up Jon and Grey Worm confrontation. Grey Worm also lets his anger get the better of him as Lannister troops surrender he says fuck it and throws a spear at a soldier which starts a crazy riot where Dany's army starts raping and pillaging everyone. Jon is like wtf apparantly but gets caught up in the battle to really do anything (lannisters start attacking again). There was a leak I read earlier I'll try and find it because what my source was telling me was very similiar to that leak and they more or less confirmed everything in that leak 100% true."
  • Pre-Episode 05 Part B - "Yeah i think Unsullied are just indiscriminately killing (women and children) and Dothraki go on a rape rampage. Source didnt get specific but I dont see Unsullied doing any penetrating except with an actual spear. Cleganebowl happens this episode (5) and they do both die. Grey Worm and Jon have a big stare down and Grey Worm thinks Jon is gonna start killing Unsullied so hes like waiting for Jon to turn on Dany so he can kill him but a Lannister soldier distracts Jon instead. Source says they are heavily saying Dany is going mad so I would put some weight to the leaks saying Jon kills Dany. I mentioned that to the source and they just said "Oh yeah definitely leading up to that" so take that for what it is. No mention of Arya unfortunately, she must be more for episode 6? Not sure. Honestly when they told me "bells make her snap" my jaw hit the floor. Im personally not liking these and the more silly ones (Bran becoming the king) have a very real possibility of being legit imo. Hopefully the execution is better."
Source 8: Cleganebowl leaks (Called 8x05 leaks correctly. Now a trusted source)
This user can now be known as SuperMachoChiChiMan. (They'll be leaving looking at the comments and might provide more answers/clarifications)
  • Cleganebowl shows them fighting in a building, The Hounds eyes are supposed to be gouged out, and there is a dagger between the eyes of The Mountain. They crash through out a building and into the fire pits below (entire city is on fire). (They are supposed to crash through a wall at some point and The Mountain no longer has a helmet and exposed chest).
  • Leaker clarified they aren't 100% certain if Golden Company or Lannisters, thinks GC.
  • Dany first attacks the Golden company Tyrion is waiting for the bells to ring because that means Cersei has surrendered. So the bells ring and he has a look of relief that's when Dany pretty much says fuck that and starts burning the city down
  • Right before Dany decides to fuck the city up Jon and the rest of the army meet the golden company at the center of the city. But the golden company gave in already seeing the dragon so they drop their swords cuz they don't want no part of it and basically surrender.
  • That's when Dany decides to start burning the city and that's even Jon and Greyworm look at each other like wtf (no stare down). So greyworm and his troops basically kill the golden company following Danys lead. Jon basically fights his way out of the madness and the rest of the time he's just looking around at all the chaos like "oh, this bitch is crazy".
  • Arya arrives in King's landing with the Hound but then they go their seperate ways. She gets caught up on all the destruction of the city and ends up helping a group of people trying to survive. Some debris falls on her and it looks like she's dead but the very last shot of the episode is her waking up and getting on a horse and getting leaving
  • Cersie dies from the building collapsing on her. Arya won't kill Cersie. The building is going to collapse on her and Jaime.
  • Tyrion sees or listens to Varys telling Jon he would be a better ruler than Dany. John pretty much says "na bro she's my queen". Tyrion tells Dany (Tyrion still believes that she will be a good queen) that Varys is trying to convince Jon into betraying her. Dany is upset at Tyrion and Varys for knowing the truth about Jons real identity. Dany decides to burn (for betraying her) Varys with her dragon. Dany is also upset at Jon for telling Sansa because she feels like the word is going to spread.
May 16th Updates
Jon, Davos and Tyrion are walking through the aftermath of Kings Landing. Tyrion walks through what's left of the castle and sees Jaime's hand so he starts to uncover the rubble and he confirms both Cersei and Jaime are dead. They find Grey Worm and his men they have Lannister Soldiers trapped and they're about to kill them. Jon trys to tells Grey Worm to stop. Grey Worm tells Jon that its the queens orders. Then they cut to Dany giving a speech pretty much saying how she freed the people from Kings Landing and the new goal is freeing the rest of the world. Dany turns to Tyrion and tells him he committed treason. Tyrion tells her that she killed thousands of innocent people and he takes off the hands pin and throws it. Dany sends him to prison.
Jon goes to see her and she sitting on the Iron throne alone and John tells her that she needs to stop being a crazy bitch and that Grey Worm killed the Lannisters army from the previous scene. Dany tells Jon that she's doing it for the people. Jon pretends to understand and tricks her. When her guard is down he stabs her. Drogon comes and is standing over her body and he burns or melts the Iron throne and carries her away.
Grey Worm has Tyrion and Jon as his prisoners. The *council is (led by Sansa) tells Grey Worm to release Jon back to them but he refuses. That's when Tyrion says that the new King or Queen should decide what happens to Jon. Sam suggest for a democratic vote for the new king. Tyrion calls that idea stupid. The council votes and decide Bran Should be the King. Bran picks Tyrion as his hand.
Tyrion tells Jon that his punishment is going back to the wall and join the Knights Watch. Grey Worm accepts Jons punishment. He doesn't bend the knee leaves with his troops and Dothraki on ships to go free Slave cities. They show Tyrion leading the council. Jon says goodbye to Sansa and Arya. Arya tells them she isn't going back home. She's going to explore whatever is west of Westeros because that's where no one has been.
The final scene is a Closing montage. You see Arya on a ship, Sansa ruling Winterfell and Jon doesnt stay at the wall he reunites with Tormund and Ghost.
Council Members: Samwell Tarly the Grand Maester, Davos Seaworth Master of ships, Bronn Master of Coin and High Garden, Brienne (not sure) Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, Yara Greyjoy Lord of Iron Islands, Robin Arryn Lord of Kingdom of the Mountain and the Vale, Gendry Baratheon Lord of Storm's End, Yohn Royce Lord of Runestone, Hound doesn't get mentioned., Podrick is wheeling around Bran and he protects him.
Ellaria Sand doesn't get mentioned (i asked because she's alive). Sam mentions that they seen Drogon in some location but aren't sure. Bran just says, "ill look for him" They don't have a Master of Laws and Whisperers. Tyrion is looking for the right people to fill those spots. They don't clarify what Bran did when he was in warg during The Long Night. Did i forget to mention the most important detail about this entire episode? our good boy gets a pat from Jon.
May 16th Q&A (Finished)
Source hasn't answered the last 6+ questions so we'll stop taking questions for now to stop annoying them. Maybe more questions will be answered tomorrow.
Is Tyrion making decisions while being a prisoner?
Tyrion is in front of the council as a prisoner of Grey Worm he isn't making decision he is content with being a prisoner he makes suggestions only.
Does drogon have an emotional reaction?
Drogon is emotional as a dragon can get I guess. when Dany dies he comes stands over here and it's all the roar before he brings the iron throne and carries her away.
Why is Grey Worm taking Jon prisoner and later accepting his punishment and just going his merry way with the unsullied and dorthroki?
When Bran names Tyrion as his hand Grey Worm gets upset and says he must pay his crimes. He will by trying to make the world a better place for the rest of his life. Then Tyrion is the one telling Jon he is going back to the Nights Watch. He said Greyworm wanted him dead and Santa wanted him back home so nobody is getting what they want it's a fair compromise.
Does Jon actually leave the wall?
Yes. The last shot is him, Ghost, Tormund and a bunch of the wildings leaving the wall and heading north.
Does Rhaegar come back?
No.
Do they show what Drogon does with Dany?
No
Does Arya travel alone?
No. With a whole crew. No one important that I noticed.
Does Arya have any main characters with her crew?
No.
Does Tully and Riverrun get mentioned?
I don't recall that being mentioned.
Is the Montage Stark's + Wildings?
Yes
Does Jon Kill Danny with long claw?
No uses dagger.
Does Arya and Gendry talk?
They are both part of the Council that are voting for The King but they don't interact.
Does John interact with Arya before killing Dany?
He didn't know that she was there the whole time then he was burning King's landing.
Does Toby get mentioned?
No
Can you give more details about Jon killing Dany? And his emotional state? What made him kill her?
I would have to re-watch that scene.
How does Drogon pick up Dany?
With his feet.
Any signs of resurrection?
None
Any big final twist?
Nope
Any information about isla de las cars?
No
Does Dany threatened his siblings?
He's not sure. He skimmed through most of the episode.
Has source seen the entire episode?
No skimmed through parts of the episode.
I asked if this episode is based on a single day, weeks or months.
Source said this unfolds in weeks. Tyrion mentions having weeks to think while in prison.
May 17th Q&A (ongoing)
Do you know what Arya is doing in the scene from the preview?
Listening to Danys speech.
Does Bran, Sansa, Arya and John interact right before they separate?
All they do is say goodbye before Jon leaves.

C. Spoilers excluded from Summary

These spoilers are excluded from the Summaries because they don't meet the leak standards of this subreddit. Namely, does it come from a reliable source who has been correct in the past or have they predicted past episodes before.
  • Parts 1,2,3,4,7 all had parts confirmed in prior episodes which is why they were used.
  • Part 5 was a referral from someone who routinely finds good leaks and also confirmed parts in prior episodes later.
  • Part 6 was a screenshot in the 8x04 preview trailer.
1. "Spanish Spoilers" (Unos Cuantos "Spoilers") (Debunked)
2. Cleganebowl Leaks (Confirmed, now Source 8)
3. shanmaghery
Possibly right in their post 11 months ago. Lacking few details. The only thing it might add is "A Lannister soldier stripped and paraded in the streets, a mini walk of shame".

Anything we missed or think we should re-examine? Feel free to share below!

D100 Fantasy Western encounters revisit

this is a revisit to try and finish the list.
The jaunty music stopped when the half orc bounty hunter walked through the saloon doors, the halfling bartender knew by the look in his eye that this man was trouble, so hastily grabbed the bottles and glasses, and hid under the bar, ignoring the ones on the shelves as he regularly cast wards on them for just such an occasion. the half orc took a look around the bar, eyes settling on the tiefling in the corner, carving his name in to the table top. the bounty hunters hand moved toward the big iron on his hip and said with a loud voice. "I'm here for Horned Harry, that you?!" the tiefling spit just to the side of the spatoon. "Ya I'm him, wanna make somthin of it?" Horned Harry snapped his fingers with a penumbral spark and the room filled with darkness.
D100 Interesting Fantasy Western Encounters,
so I'm making a campaign set in the future(well relative to mid evil fantasy that is...) where guns are common place and the trains run on time and I'd like some ideas for some encounters I can run. it can either be on the road or in a town, and it doesn't have to include combat
  1. a flying train descends, surrounding around our heroes like a snake, then bandits pop out of the train and demand their money or their lives, if the battle starts going poorly. the train then flies off leaving behind any remaining bandits, they chase after the train for a ways and, seeing they've been abandoned, surrender and/or beg for their lives.(u/sirkibblesnbits )
  2. While walking down the road, the heroes see a pair of disembodied legs walk up to them,invisible hands try to riffle through their pockets and belongings. if confronted, the would-be thief admits that he thought he was fully invisible and that the potion that snake oil salesman sold him must have been watered down.(u/sirkibblesnbits )
  3. a caravan of goblins, in blood stained clothing too big for them, wander by in covered wagons. They say that they are merely halflings off to some nonsence location that they had heard of at some point. they attack any traveler they see that is clearly unarmed but will pretend to be halflings if they see any signs of weapons or combat prowess, will also run/drive away at speed if any of their number is killed (u/sirkibblesnbits )
  4. a pair of thieves in a secluded spot near the road are loudly arguing how to they are going to split the money while are trying to open a stolen safe with a stick of dynamite and, unless intervened, will neglect to distance themselves from the explosion. killing them both but leaving the safe open, with its contents intact (my favorite encounter in red dead redemption 2)
  5. a dwarf in his underwear using a rust monster to pull his wagon by using a iron dagger on a fishing pole, if interacted with, the dwarf stops the beast by smacking it in the head with a wooden club knocking it unconscious. if asked he'll gladly vent about what happened. after an exhausting day in the mine, a rust monster had emerged from the depths of the cave it ate everything it could get its antennae on. it also ate the chain keeping his horse tethered. so when he awoke all his metal possessions were turned to rust, his horse was long gone, and a rust monster was munching on what was left of his armor. so he sneaked(snuck?) the wagon into position and then before it could object tied up the beast and stuck the dagger that he keeps under his pillow on a line and into it's face and the rest is history. he is too proud to ask for assistance but will hesitantly accept any charity offered. when he set off he puts some smelling salts to the antennae of the rust monster and continues on his way. (u/sirkibblesnbits )
  6. A lone stranger, clad in trench coat and ten-gallon hat, stands in the middle of the road with the sun at his back. he stops the party saying “Now, how’s about you hand over any yer valuables.” If the party refuses, a pair of draconic wings block out the setting sun as they unfurl from his back. “I wasn’t askin” It’s a young adult blue dragon, just come into adulthood, testing out his new powers. The party can fight him, hand their belongings over, or, with the right Persuasion roll (DC 18) convince him to let them join him in a spot of thievin’ and lootin’ ( u/Splashdown119)
  7. Carniverous tumbleweeds. nuf said. (u/thebarberbarian)
  8. An air genasi enlisting the party to help her lasso a twister (u/thebarberbarian)
  9. A nearby gold mine has been taken over by a dao that has enslaved all the miners (u/thebarberbarian)
  10. Wizard duels at High Moon (u/thebarberbarian)
  11. A herd of undead horses has been appearing every night. If you follow them they'll eventually lead you to where they died in battle, and to the artifact that is keeping their restless souls bound to this plane (u/thebarberbarian)
  12. Quest for the legendary Mithril Spurs (u/thebarberbarian)
  13. A herd of cow-sized dinosaurs being driven by kobolds riding velociraptors. They pay you little mind, but are prepared to defend themselves if provoked. (u/ElZoof)
  14. Six gunmen arguing fiercely over who’s turn it is to have Main Street for a high-noon showdown. Any attempt to interfere results on all six turning on the interlopers.(u/ElZoof)
  15. Two strangely dressed humans fiddling with a sleek-looking horseless carriage with doors that look like wings. If questioned, they’re conducting “weather experiments” and will ask you to bring them glowing rocks from a nearby mine. (u/ElZoof)
  16. The party is traveling between towns on a dusty road. It's nearing dusk, and the party is getting ready to hunker down when suddenly they hear the thundering of hooves! They look around but can't find the telltale dustcloud of whatever person(s) or beast(s) are making the noise. The sounds of the many hooves grow louder, and with them come the sounds of wranglers, tippy ki yaying and yippy ki ohhing, but still no sign of any herd or riders. Coincidentally one looks up and gasps, "Ghost Riders! Ghost Riders in the sky!" (u/LilyWineAuntofDemons)
  17. A railroad tycoon needs some squatters cleared out from his land. Turns out the land is a druidic Grove that's planned to be torn down for the railroad. (u/joetom1992)
  18. Party comes to a town with a bandit problem. In two days the bandits are going to ride in and take the money, one way or another. (u/joetom1992)
  19. Burried beneath the mountain is an ancient evil. It'll stay dormant if left alone, but word is starting to spread about gold in the hills. (u/joetom1992)
  20. An undead stranger enters a saloon, and challenges one patron to drink or draw, i.e. match the revenant drink for drink, or match him in a gunfight. The stranger explains he was hung for killing a man who stole his beer. He was cursed to wander, challenging someone every night. If someone outdrinks him, he can rest. Otherwise, he challenges them to pistols at noon. This revenant must lose one of these contests to find rest. ("Drink with the Living Dead" by ghoultown.) (u/Kronk458 and u/Ljmroper)
  21. They encounter a stranger with an strangely big handgun. The stranger has in gun terms almost giant colt .44 (a bit iron one could say) hanging on his hip and he demands information of whereabouts of infamous criminal Rexas Ted ( u/globaros)
  22. You see an outlaw you recognise from a wanted poster. should you pursue them a thrilling chase ensues. when you capture the outlaw, they reveal themselves to be a changeling who acts as a decoy for the real outlaws (or they do it for the thrill of outrunning bounty hunters). ( u/Eraepsoel)
  23. A shabby travelling carnival has monstrous animals such as as an owlbear and an ankheg, that are ill-treated. If you ask the boss why they aren’t fed properly, he gets angry and tries to have his boys throw you out. ( u/Eraepsoel)
  24. A bar fight breaks out, but just before it really gets going, in walks the town sheriff - a wizard - who calms everyone’s emotions with an enchantment spell. ( u/Eraepsoel)
  25. you find a traveling band of Mariachi kobolds. ( u/nameless88)
  26. you find Cubes McGee, the roughest toughest low-down meanest gelatinous cube in the west. Word is he's been rustling Old Man Withers' sheep. You can tell by all the sheep skeletons floating inside him. He stands 5'8" tall, including the cowboy hat. Don't get too close or he'll slowly eject a bullet in your general direction. ( u/PM_Me_Rude_Haiku)
  27. You encounter a human cowboy lassoing some minor air elementals. ( u/ken_NT)
  28. you find A chromoform (color-changing) dragonborn in the middle of a shootout with a lizardfolk outlaw when a roc, that had been menacing the town, swoops in and starts chasing him. If left uninterrupted the dragonborn manages to slay the roc by collapsing a water tower. “You might say I go wherever whiskeys cheap and hell waiting to be raised. You might say I’m already a piece of hell raised up. Name’s... Rango.” ( u/LordMosnar )
  29. At nightfall some kobolds pop up from the ground, looking around quizzically. They were tunneling to the bank but got lost. ( u/LordMosnar )
  30. A stranger strides into town through the midday haze. Tall, gangly, face hidden under a wide brimmed hat. He challenges the infamous Snake-Oil Sid, a Yuan-Ti outlaw, to a shootout. Everyone knows the stranger won’t last two swigs of whiskey; Sid outshoots every bounty man that comes to town. When the two meet, Sid empties his crossbow as fast as wind, and the bolts whistle towards the stranger before he even draws his weapon... clanging off the stranger’s metal chest. In the stunned silence that follows, the warforged cracks a mechanical smile, converts his arm into a crossbow, and pumps Snake-Oil Sid’s guts full of iron. ( u/LordMosnar )
  31. There's a strange bank that shows up randomly around the region, never too close nor too far from a given town. The bank owner offers loans to those who venture out to his moving bank at extraordinarily low-interest rates. The twist is likely that it's a Night Hag, who has bizarre methods of determining someone's loan-worthiness. Sometimes she collects a sample of blood, sometimes she simply consults her crystal ball to determine if giving the applicant money now will influence her mysterious long-term goals. I think this works best as a random encounter or rumor - it's best if the PCs don't have a reason to "go after" the lender. ( u/m0dredus )
  32. a coyote appears and takes the dumbest party member on a spiritual journey (Guatemalan insanity pepper not included) ( u/DogmaSychroniser )
  33. you find a man on a horse, his hands are bound and theres a noose around his neck tied to the high branches of a tree. he is surrounded by few dead bodies and more then a few arrows. this bandit was sent to be hung, but before the sheriff could hang him they were attacked leaving only the bandit and horse left. the horse is trying to graze but if that horse moves any further he'll slide off, and the noose will finish the job.(the ballad of buster scruggs) ( u/sirkibblesnbits)
  34. In the middle of the desert, your ears slowly here, a mellow tune in the distance. (Depending on the time of day, the tune is different — morning to afternoon, cheery or tries at least — afternoon to night, a lantern is seen that glimmers with green torch light, and a gothic tune is heard), the tune gets louder and louder, and your eyes wander and you find a satyr, chained to an anchor playing a piano. The sand around him is turning into glass crystals. Coming closer you see that there is more than just a piano, instruments as well. They seem to be instruments of the bards; The Anstruth Harp, Canaith Mandolin, Cli Lyre, Doss Lute, Fochlucan bandore, Mac-Fuirmidh cittern and even the Ollamh harp. Talking to the satyr, you find out his name is Lucy, and that he is bound by a fiend (Erinyes) to play music for eternity, no rest, and that he is bound to these instruments. If a PC tries to take one, they cannot lift it off the ground. You also learned out that Lucy left the Nine Hell’s without acknowledging it, he was a prized composer of music. To unbound him, you need to go to an abandoned church and seek this fiend. Going in, you are teleported into Avernus, without you knowing until you walk out.( u/Gods_Cat)

  46. Werecoyotes menace the city(u/FirstChAoS)
  47. As long as the party is good aligned or has a reputation for being good, whenever they get into an encounter way over their head, a mysterious stranger, in high collared trench coat and widebrim hat slung low, will very rarely appear some distance away and provides covering fire with his revolver. He disappears in a heat haze once the battle is over.

The old man will give it to them, but for a price. Whoever buys the desired object is told to spread the word about the shop, is called on psychically in a few days’ time by the old man(a devil in disguise) to murder another townsperson, and claim their soul for him. Soon, the whole town is at war, and the only way the PCs can break the deals made is by killing the devil. (u/grimoireofstrangers)

The townsfolk leave there dead at the borders of the graveyard, as they think it is the only thing keeping the undead at bay. When night comes, a thick mist roles over the tombstones obscuring everything from the knee down. Wandering the graveyard is a shovel wielding skeleton, dressed in dirty, torn clothes. The skeleton is not hostile, and instead it wanders the graveyard digging and burying the dead. The skeleton is the only undead creature in the graveyard. (u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  73. The sheriff asks the adventurers to accompany a farm hand back home. He came to town the night before, talking about a large, dead looking tree with a number of nooses hanging off its branches. It appeared not too far from the farm one night, and got closer each night since. He was sent to town to fetch some help. When the group returns with him, they find the place abandoned. After some investigation they find five people hanging from the tree in the centre of the farm. (u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  74. As they’re travelling the group there’s someone shouting for help. In the distance, someone is perched atop a rock with three axe beaks angrily standing around the rock trying to get to them. Their horse is dead and laying on the ground in front of the rock. They can’t offer much, but they do have a map that is meant to lead to an abandoned mine not too far from here.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  75. As the sun gets close to setting, a large black carriage rolls in to town and stops not too far from the bank. The carriage driver is obscured by dark robes, and on closer inspection the horses drawing the carriage are not alive - they’re constructs - with red gem stone eyes, shaped metal bodies and steam coming front heir noses. Not too soldierly after, the carriage launches open revealing five bandits who and a large crank operated Gatling gun with crystals placed at the end of the barrels. As the gunner opens fire on the bank, it’s revealed to fire beams of magic rather than bullets.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  76. While travelling at night, the group stumbles upon a still burning campfire in the distance. When they arrive at the fire, there are a number of dots available for them, with one extra. If they stay at the fire for longer than an hour, a stranger approaches in a trench coat, the brim of his hat sat low. He greets the group in a friendly manner, before lifting his hat to reveal his glowing gold eyes.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  77. While travelling, the group here’s a shout from somewhere nearby. Upon quick investigation, they realise that not too far away their is a tall, but scrawny half Orc with his head sticking out of a hole in the ground. He is surrounded by holes in the ground, and covered in dirt, and with a bandana wrapped around his face he makes for a strange sight. With an eccentric personality and speech, I’m he asks for help to find and dig up the treasure that he is sure is in the area (happy to split it 50/50 with the group). A quick glance at the map shows he is in the completely wrong spot, but someone in the party remembers a landmark on the map was only a few miles back.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  78. At night in an abandoned and completely run down ghost town, lingering spirits wander around mournfully trying to perform the actions they would have in life. The spirits try to speak with and involve people on their activities, as if they were still alive, but they don’t act in a hostile manner unless provoked. In the base of the run down mansion, when searched through, there is a small jade idol with gold details, carved to look like a skull. If someone takes it, they hear echoing wails from outside as the ghosts become aggressive spectres.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  79. A limping jackal approaches the campfire, bowing its head and acting in a frightened manner. If the group acts in a hostile way it flees, but if not it approaches the friendliest character and tries curl up next to them and rest. When everyone goes to sleep, whoever is on watch or guard for the night here’s something behind them, but when they turn they are overcome with drowsiness and fall asleep. In the meowing when they wake, wealth and magic items are missing with human tracks that turn in to jackal tracks leading from the camp sight.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  80. Buzzards are circling in the distance, a body lying underneath. When the group approaches and a shoo the birds they find a parched and near death female water genasi, babbling about the “Hidden Oasis”.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  81. A gnome with a large curled moustache and no hair sets up a small travelling store pulled by a short donkey. The store has the imagery of a snake in a bottle as it’s simple, and the gnome offers a range of specialised potions and tonics, all of which have a serpent theme. Though they seem to work at first, they all have a draw back.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  82. A stranger wanders in to town keeping to herself, and taking a seat at the corner of the bar. After an adventure partakes in a gambling activity, she joins in shortly after , but still keeping to herself. After winning a few rounds, she asks the adventures if they’d like to make a bet for something “a bit more interesting”, staying deliberately ambiguous about what she offers. If they agree, her eye’s glow with a pale blue light and a smile breaks across her lips stretching to an unnaturally wide amount.(u/ADangDirtyBoi)
  83. A centaur cowboy who's herding a large group of cattle. Although his cattle appear to have slightly demonic traits and are more aggressive than the average bovine. He's learned a little bit of wizardry and shocks them if they ever get bitey. Apparently the meat of demon cows is much better than regular meat. (u/Quantext609)

[Lets build] 100 Stories that the PCs got told as children.

These are stories that were told to the PCs as children, almost everyone knowing them.
Real life examples include the Boogieman, Santa, The Tooth fairy, Krampus, Hansel and Gretel, etc.
These stories could be real and be something that your party is going up against, something completely fiction just to throw red herrings up, or something in between. That is for you (the DM/GM) to decide.
  1. The Maiden in the Mist - A female figure that appears in the shadows of the mist, said to pull children into the Shadowfell or the Feywilds. People say that she was a widow who lost her children in a fog, and know mistakes wandering children for her own.
  2. The Umbral Man - A man who is said to be able to walk through walls, the world's greatest killer. He strikes from the Abyss, retreating when his jobs is done.
  3. Nadite, The Lady of the Green Star - A lady who watches from a bright green star that appears in the sky very rarely. When it appears, people say that the Feywilds are opening, Nadite protecting the portal from outside invaders.
  4. Krokra, The Brave Bird - A Kenku who stopped a Abberation from destroying a town with only the words of the people Krokra had as friends, sending the Abberation back to the Far Realms.
  5. Gedis, The Halfling Prince - A Halfling who had been forced out of his own kingdom by a greedy Dragon, only to return after befriending a Solar named Irher who help Gedis force out the Dragon.
  6. ( u/OwenMcCauley )James the Wanderer - Adventurer, world traveler, and unabashed debtor. James may have been a real figure at some point but his story grew well beyond reality over the years. A book, titled The Musings of James the Wanderer is a collection of helpful aphorism by the legendary figure himself. James was wise in his way but also kind of a dolt. Some examples are, "A road of gold is both loud and slippery" and "If all else fails, kick them in the fork"
  7. (u/JustDndFantasyThing**)**When the fog comes in from the sea to our little port town beware the white witch who walks upon the water, she comes to steal your our daughters. The only thing to stop her is the blood of our fathers.
  8. ( u/PantsIsDown )The current main plot line in my campaign revolves around a kids story that the group has discovered is true.The Shadowless Rider is a story told to children in a region where the undead and other evil ghoulish powers rule the night. It’s meant to scare them in order to keep them from wandering out at night or straying away from their parents while traveling.The Shadowless Rider is a ghostly horseman clad in all black armor, cloaked in shadows, and his unseen presence is enough to spook even the mightiest of steeds. His mount is a fire eyed demon mare from hell, faster than any horse on land or by sky. He lures children away from their parents and carries them off to drown them in the lake. Anyone that even lays eyes on him and manages to get away goes stark raving mad. If he catches you on the road, he’ll run you down, trample you, crushing your bones and sucking out your soul, forcing you to join his ghostly gang of riders, enslaved for all eternity.
  9. ( u/veldrinshade 9-13)The story of Rattlebag - It's a story about accepting those who are different. The protagonist is a young boy who makes fun of an old beggar man for being disfigured. The God's punish the boy by turning him into the first wererat and their kind is a constant reminder that kindness is a better path. Think the boy who cried wolf.
  10. The story of Eglebert the Wise - A man overcomes the three trials of the Giants and is granted the power to shape trees. Scholars differ on whether this is meant to be the first Druid but since the ancient tree Volverent says the story is younger than him the Druids say no. But they would, wouldn't they?
  11. Drory the Kind - This is actually a cautionary tale of a kindly Kobold (though the other evil races substitute their own race so that no one actually knows what the original story actually was) who was harrassed by the local villagers for simply being a Kobold no matter how nice he was. This is a warning to young Kobolds as Drory is eventually killed by a guardsman over a simple misunderstanding. Should be used by any player raised by nonstandard parents.
  12. Forswood - The tale of a young man who tries ale too early in life and is turned into a frog by a mischievous fae. His adventures include befriending a badger and a stag. It ends oddly with the boy returning to find a kindly wizard who turns him back into a boy but then takes him away to train as a wizard. If this story ever had a moral it was lost long ago.
  13. The story of King Plius - this story centers around a Prince and the Pauper style tale but ends with the true King killing the peasant. While King however the peasant had sequestered quite a some of gold and jewels and the true King never found them. The legend also contains a riddle for finding the stash. I leave both the riddle and potential reward up to the GM (mainly because I'm bad at making riddles).
  14. ( u/Jackizback0 )Fiddlesticks, the Animated Scarecrow who feasts on the fear of little children who stay outside too late past their bedtime. He is described in thousands of ways from thousands of people, and widely considered a fable. But the families of those he’s killed warn against trusting any voice you hear at night, as fiddlesticks will use other’s last words to lure you in. Don’t let him lure you in with his lantern by making you think there is safety, because all you’ll find is teeth.(Siakre here: this is a League of Legends Champion btw)
  15. ( u/BrokenBanette )The day the world goes red - It is fated that one day, when the blue and blood moons align, that an ancient being will come across to the world. Some legends say it is a peaceful goddess who brings health and prosperity, while others claim it is an unstoppable demon out for blood! Nobody knows which is true, and it's always a debate as to which one's which, but either way... the clock is ticking...
  16. ( u/Arbiter1171 )Pinky and the Brain: Children all over the multiverse love to listen to the wacky hijinks of a pink flumph and an intellect devourer trying to take over the world.
  17. ( u/superheltenroy )My old fighteduelist grew up hearing about Ragnar the Red.Ragnar the Red got his feather light armor and his luck blade, and slew the dragon with wit and a single lucky strike.
  18. ( u/dljens )If you don't wipe your shoes before your come inside, the Terrasque gets one step closer to awakening.
  19. ( u/1337d00dXD )Forthog, The Orc Slayer - A bald man with an appreciation for music travels the world, when he is met and betrayed by an orc who he also thought loved the gift of song. He wanders the world saving those in need, and slaying Orcs it with his bladed axe-lute.
  20. ( u/PrinnyBaal )The Wandering Star- The story of a Cassisian who gets lost and winds up wandering from plane to plane (Story is read in the style of 'Is this my Plane?' *Parent makes whirring gear noises* 'This is the plane of law. This is not my Plane')
  21. ( u/Battl3Dancer1277 )This one is CANNON in my game, from a book of the same name "Pebbles the Gargoyle". It's a story about the importance of self control. Without it, Pebbles cannot use her Gargoyle power to remain still to be indistinguishable from a statue. By the end of the story, Pebbles has mastered her Power by mastering herself.
  22. ( u/thegoldsmith67 )The fable of the friendly necromancer - one day the local lich realised something that if he learned all the secrets of the world and turned the local kingdoms into undead slaves he would get incredibly bored. So he gathered his armies and marched upon the local community college to get his minions training in public works and then they marched on the city and began to take over...the repetitive and dangerous tasks such as sewer maintenance, rickshaws and farming bringing peace and unearth upon the kingdoms.
  23. ( u/Flaredragoon1 )The blade sprites - Young fighters and aspiring soldiers are told stories of many a blade sundered in the battlefield and that only proper maintenance and care in practice will spare them from this fate, but legend and myth tell of fairy sprites that wander encampments and fortifications filled with weapons to behold. These tiny Craftsmen judge every blade, bow, and club, granting their verdict on the worthy or the unworthy. Poorly kept weapons are given fatal cracks and unseen spoilage or rusted to uselessness while well kept weapons are strengthened with fey magic and keen edges or other boons. The sounds of tiny hammers it's said to be heard when they ply their trade, as a warning to keep your weapons in good care.
  24. ( u/MaxSizeIs )The Wooleyman: Eats children and turns them into dustbunnies, leaving them as warnings to other children who don't sweep under thier bed and keep thier room clean.
  25. ( u/Spartawolf 25-28)The Ragman - "Come home before dark or the Ragman will come, he comes out at night, I hope you can run..." A frightening figure used by parents to scare their children not to go out too late. Based on a serial murderer who plagued a large metropolis with a series of gruesome child killings. May or may not have been caught....
  26. Dan Daringnose - A Gnome Bard hero with many tales of heroics told to young children revolving around resolving disputes among the other races peacefully using his big Gnomish brain.
  27. Bork Bumblebeard - A foolhardy protagonist of dwarvern tales, who's funny legendary mishaps serve as a reminder to dwarf children to pay attention to detail. Sometimes makes an appearance in other dwarvern tales as a friendly foil to a hero or just as comic relief. Sometimes older storytellers may insert one of Bork's antics into their story no matter how improbable as a way of playing a practical joke on the listener, similar to a Rickroll!
  28. Elaine Everheart - An elven adventurer who always saves the day by working in harmony with sentient plants and animals, some becoming regular characters in future stories!
  29. ( u/GuySingingMrBlueSky 29-31)The Red Jester - a man who performs for traveling groups of people, he juggles dismembered heads, plays a bagpipe made from human skin and sings songs of his previous victims. He spares you if you laugh along with his jokes and clap at his macabre displays, but if you don’t, you become part of his act.
  30. The Evil Werewolf - because werewolves become their opposite nature when they turn, there was a man who was truly evil but became good whenever the full moon came out, doing charity for the poor and helping people before barricading himself to stop the human side of himself from wreaking havoc. An inverse of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story.
  31. The Cursed Lovers - in the beginning, the only beings in the universe were Light and Darkness. They immediately fell for each other, but because of their nature, they couldn’t come close to each other without Light hurting Darkness (as Darkness is simply the absence of Light). One day, they decided to try anyway, and upon their kiss, Darkness disappeared, causing Light to scream so loud and primally that the universe came into existence, erasing herself in the process. Though the two beings are gone now, their domains are still in existence, forever forced to stay separate.
  32. ( u/medicalsnowninja )The Clinging Vines - A tale of a wandering princess/maiden/bard that usually gets saved from some variation of an Entangle spell(local plant type, goblinoid druid, or such) by a passing RangePaladin/Folk Hero background type. Reminiscent of Little Red Riding Hood, in that the bulk of the tale is split between how she ended up in the vines and her experience in the vines. Most variants in which the damsel is rescued rather than freeing herself or perishing result in stereotypical instant love/happily-ever-after type endings.Numerous variations of this story occur across the land, but they all stem from one of the original anti-magic propaganda campaigns put on by an early religion vying for dominance in a bygone civilization. For as long as there are still records of the story, however, it has been used mainly as an allegory as to why you never wander alone(i.e. split the party).
  33. ( u/memebiiigforehead )Boonhammer- A sailofishermen turned adventurer, who used a war hammer to kill a massive kraken.
  34. ( u/ApostleO )Never look at a mirror in the dark. A mirror in darkness becomes a portal to another realm, where doppelgangers can reach through to strangle you and take your place in this world.
  35. ( u/NocturnalBeing )Den'tal: A small humanoid that steals children's teeth. The story is told to those who refuse to eat the food served to them.
  36. ( u/Minititan1010 )Bul'tar the Immortal King - As tale told to all small children of the barbarian tribes of the north to teach them humility. Bul'tar once was the mightiest of the ancient Barbarians and was revered far and wide as the strongest living being. He had wrestled Storm Giants to the ground, broken the neck of the great red wyrm Ixenvhir with his bare hands and sundered mountains with his greataxe. One day, the powerful Lich Acererak took notice of Bul'tar and made a bet with him. If Bul'tar could defeat all of his minions, Acererak would grant him unimaginable riches and treasure if not, Bul'tar would join his army of undead and guard Acereraks tomb for eternity. Bul'tar, confident in his might, agreed. Acererak then continued to summon his minions to fight the barbarian in a battle that would last an entire month and change the landscape forever. Mountains shattered, Earth became barren and everything within hundreds of miles was ground to dust. Bul'tar fought with every ounce of his almost inexhaustible strenght but alas, at the end he was overrun by the endless stream of undead and died, standing in a field filled with streams of his blood and the white powdered bones of millions of undead. Acererak, having won the bet, was nontheless impressed by this display of strenght and fashioned a Statue of Bul'tar out of the undead he had slain and his blood at the place he stood, before taking the corpse away and using it to create one of the mightiest protectors of his true tomb. The Immortal King is still remembered to this day, even if no flesh coils around his adamantine-like bones and his greataxe has set the rust of millenia.
  37. ( u/LordsOfJoop 37-42)The Trenchmire Tales: stories told to young, inexperienced potential soldiers about the dangers of siege warfare. It's a cautionary tale regarding common illnesses and afflictions that befall entrenched soldiers and through the use of metaphor, how to treat them successfully .
  38. Alatat of the Hoard: an old story told while camping on the roads, it's designed to keep its listeners awake through fear and youthful paranoia; highlights of it include staying silent and observant, obeying parental figures and the value of never talking to strangers
  39. Ten Times Ten Storms: a delightful ballad sang to sleepless children of several races, designed to be whispered quieter and quieter as the verses progress.
  40. Stirring Bread: a nonsensical tune about preparing baked goods, containing a given family recipe for a specific type of bread; every family has at least one variant of the song memorized and it tends to follow the same general theme from family to family.
  41. Swords of My Father, Spears of My Mother: a song about being cautious when discussing war and military life with strangers and older family members; could be construed as a way to cope with PTSD for returning veterans - every version has a happy ending ... though the original reportedly does not.
  42. Quieter Than Sand: a marching song for nomadic tribes of the desert, it's a hummed ditty with only a few spoken words, each one spaced approximately a half hour apart; it instills a sense of time and cadence into young tribe members, a lesson that can sometimes be discerned later in life.
  43. ( u/arteest29 ) The Step Worm: When little boys and girls get out of their beds at night, the step worm is underground and can hear the footsteps and little pitter patters. They creep up and burrow in their feet and their feet need to be cut off.
  44. ( u/MrMage88 44-46) Auntie Agatha: In a part of my world, there was an old Hag who called herself Auntie Agatha, who would go around at night or in dark/hard to see parts of the woods and whistle to attract children. As the children got close to her, she’d enter her full size and put them into a big woven backpack and carry them back to her lair to do as she pleases. One party that I ran for killed her after noticing her kidnap a child that had been playing in a field.
  45. Kindness: This is more of a common set of myths of Gods coming down to the Material Plane and disguising themselves as random (often poor, crazy, or sick folks) people or animals in order to get to know people first hand. If people mistreat them, then they curse them or damn them. If they are treated well, they give Boons to the people, maybe by giving them special treatment in the afterlife, leaving gold and other gifts in places for them to “find”, making them just lucky or flat out intervening on their behalf. The God May also get more personally involved, designating that person and their bloodline as destined for greatness (maybe making them Aasimar, or a like of Clerics, Paladins, Sorcerers, and Warlocks). The stories vary by God, culture, region, etc. but they typically have the same common moral of being kind to random strangers (and really just everyone, including animals) in order to appease the Gods. This also actually happens, so sometimes a random villager may find a pot of gold after sharing bread, ale, and food stories with a weary traveler, or a party member may find themselves blessed after tossing a pouch of the dragon’s gold to that homeless child.
  46. The Forgotten Heroine: Long ago, an immense titan of Elemental Earth was corrupted by the Hells to be an infernal war machine, a hellish continent that would be the start of Hell on Earth. It’s presence would corrupt the nearby lands with Hell’s influence, but a group of strangers, divided by creed, occupation, background, and just about everything else, worked together to stop them. Their names have been lost to history, but their actions remembered. The strongest among them cleaved valleys in the Titans. The magician bound the titan in place, as if it were a continent. Both of them gave their lives in the process. But finally, the titan had to be subdued, the infection of the Hells driven from its vessel, so the bravest of the heroes, a mortal touched by the divine (though some scholars think her some once divine being fallen from grace), who plunged her blade into the titan and used it as a conduit to channel all of the divinity her mortal vessel could handle and through her and her blade the power flowed into the titan, destroying it and the Hellish infection and leaving behind a now barren continent. The Heroine herself was destroyed. In destroying the titan, she channeled so much of the power of the Gods that she became one with it (sort of akin to the Flash losing himself in the Speed Force should he go to fast), and she is now dispersed throughout the Positive Energy plane, living on as immortal divine power. The last of the strangers, a wise man attuned to the Natural World, took care of the continent and nourished it, allowing it to grow and flourish. No one remembers which of the continents it was, but legend says that a mortal, pure and brave of heart like the heroine of old, may find her blade still buried in the Earth, it’s hilt sticking out and beckoning them like a beacon.
