Alright so, I took the default database from there https://skribbliohints.github.io/
and with the help of html, I extracted the words to a list separated by commas. It's useful when you want to translate those words into your native language. Word of advice
, when using google translate, do not put all words at once there, it can rapidly worsen the translation.
(And there is a last thing
. Their algorithm of picking only custom words is not working really good, at least for me. Meaning that I often get duplicates, despite having a list this big and without duplicates. I'm still trying to find some solution to this, so if somebody is experiencing this as well, share the knowledge please, I will do the same.) SOLUTION:
Thanks for the reply from PepegaWR
who identified the cause. I also tested it and there seems to be a custom words limit of 5000 characters. The easiest way in my opinion is to shuffle the words before each session to minimize the impact. Also thanks to the flynger
who had the same idea before me :)
Finally, here it is, enjoy the scribbling ^^ :

I wanted to take a minute to reflect on some thoughts looking back over the last year and some predictions going forward into 2018. I’ve been into bitcoin since 2011, but this past year I finally took the plunge and became a full time investotrader in the spring after leaving my cushy software engineering job. It turned out to be about the best decision I could have made, as I started heavily investing in a variety of coins back in spring when the rally was just getting started. It’s been a whirlwind 9 months trying to keep up with the markets, but I feel my efforts paid off, as I closed the year up 4x in term of Bitcoin and about 50x USD. My main fear was that I would put in hundreds of hours and would have just been better off holding Bitcoin, so I’m glad all my hard work paid off. submitted by
One thing I became very aware of this year is to pay attention to the macro environment in the markets, and not get tunnel vision for certain coins. In hindsight I didn’t pay enough attention to the high demand for BTC because of all the free money forks, because I was too busy researching and investing in alts. I was paying a lot of attention to individual coins, but when the market went against alts during the BTC rally, I was left dumb founded, only to realize I hadn’t paid enough attention to the meta game within the market.
I’ve now noticed that there are trends in the overall market, just like in all markets, but in crypto they come and go in months or weeks, rather than years like in the stock market. Here are my thoughts on some of the bigger trends I’ve observed.
A lot of people made a killing flipping ICOs earlier this year, but it seems like that easy money is mostly gone for now. More recently a lot of ICOs have gotten dumped upon hitting the exchanges. It was bound to happen, when something is that easy everyone will pile on until it’s no longer profitable. The cool thing about ICOs was that it allowed small time investors access into early stage investments. Something that was never really possible before, and only the privileged with millions of cash and connections could have. Well, I think going forward flipping will once again become a game for the large holders with connections. I think if you want to flip an early stage coin you’re going to have to get in way before ICO, and then sell to all the chumps who buy once it hits the market.
Penny coin pumps
This is a current market mechanic that many, myself included, are very salty about. It’s one of those thing, where in hindsight we should have seen it coming and made a killing. Normies have been entering the market for a while now, and it makes sense that when you have thousands of people that know nothing about crypto, they’re going to pick the “cheap” coins. People want those 100x gains that others have gotten, and they don’t think they’ll be able to get it with the bigger coins. This will eventually come to an end, but who knows how long it can go on for.
Alts pump when bitcoin goes sideways
I think people in these markets are addicted to crazy gains, I know I certainly am. It gets boring when you’re not doubling your money every week, so when bitcoin stalls people get their money into other coins to get that dopamine fix again. I think this is a trend that will persist for some time to come, as we’re all collective junkies for huge gains.
Look alike coins
Another market trend I’ve witnessed many times is that when one coin pumps big, it’s often followed days later by coins with similar tech. This happened very recently with ripple and stellar, and there are a host of other examples. I think this is a trend that will likely continue although lessen as investors become more savvy and begin noticing that many look alikes are not all they’re sold to be. For example, people got a taste of this with the recent XVG privacy fiasco, and are learning that while many privacy coins look alike, few actually offer real privacy.
And here are some of my predictions for this year.
XRB will emerge as the coin for inter-exchange transfers
I have accounts on around 8 exchanges, and I must say that no matter how many times I send or receive cryptos from exchanges, it always makes me extremely nervous. Waiting around for hours while my money is in limbo is terrifying, and causes me a great deal of stress. Right now we’re seeing a very rapid growth in exchanges listing XRB, and I expect this to continue and greatly accelerate this year. Once it’s on most exchanges it’s only natural that it will become the preferred method of moving money between exchanges. And, once it’s the preferred method for moving money between exchanges, I expect to see many more XRB pairs, which will further drive adoption. It could well become the traders coin. This of course, is all assuming someone doesn’t figure out how to attack the coin and destroy it, as the tech is still not battle hardened.
NEO will jump up the ranks
One main promise of crypto was to be able to do financial business outside of the realm of government controlled currencies. One of the biggest uses for this we saw this year was in ICOs, and they’re coming to NEO very fast. I think NEO will trace a trajectory similar to what ETH has already done as we see an exponential increase in the number of ICOs on the platform. A crypto economy that supports high value financial business like venture capital via ICOs is going to have a lot of demand, as ETH has already proven.
ETH with go to $2k-$5k
There is tons of stuff in the pipeline coming out, including PoS, which will give more incentive for people to hold. ETH still has one of the biggest developer communities in this space, and this will help drive innovation. It’s also becoming a secondary safe haven coin to BTC and many big holders will be parking their money in it.
Coins without fundamentals may die
Or they may not. As much as I want scams like EOS to die off, the fact is that many of these coins raised hundreds of millions during ICO, which gives them runway to burn for years to come. As long as they can keep conning people into believing in the dream, it could go on for years. However, I do expect to see some of the worst offenders shaken down the ranks, like BTG.
Thoughts on Bitcoin going forward
The sense I’m getting is that a lot of new money entering the market isn’t that interested in Bitcoin. They see it as dated tech without the chance to get them 100x gains. So, I think for a lot of small time investors entering the market that aren’t very knowledgable they will mostly buy other coins. However, if you’re looking to park a lot of money in crypto (millions) you really have no choice but to use the bigger coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum. I think we’re going to see more big names coming out saying they’re buying big chunks of Bitcoin, just like Peter Thiel did. Also, I think we’ll see a lot of people taking profits from alts and putting it back into bitcoin, as a lot of people are reluctant to cash out and deal with the tax man. The optimism in the market right now is driving people to keep money within the ecosystem, which makes a store of value coin like Bitcoin very useful.
I think we’ll start to see lighting get rolled out this year, and eventually see a shift in the tide of thinking Bitcoin is dated and past its prime. I expect to see $40k-$60k for Bitcoin by the end of the year. In my mind, it’s value proposition is still huge. It’s the one and only battle hardened crypto that has stood the test of time. If lightning can succeed, it will make a rock solid base layer for the crypto economy.
My strategy going forward
I’m a bit burned out on hyper focusing on the markets for the last 9 months, so I’m going to be doing more holding in 2018. I’ll be holding most of my portfolio in BTC, ETH, NEO, XMR, and XRB. I’ll be on the lookout for novel technology to invest in, but staying away from most business tokens. I’m interested in investing in open platforms/protocols, and I think in the long term that’s where the most money is to be made. Of course, you can make much higher percent returns chasing the latest hype, but quite frankly I’m tired of that game.
Happy trading to you all. I feel very grateful that I’m a part of this crazy movement and that I get to share in it with a bunch of crazies from all over the world. I'll be at the BTC Miami conference later this month and hope to meet some of you there.
If you have a million NYC coins and can’t wait to sell them for a quick profit when say the price of the coin hits a penny each, or even a tenth of a penny, then will you be a millionaire when it hits a dollar? No, you probably will be broke! submitted by
After you try to get in and out trying to buy some NYC back only to sell them again, etc, eventually you’ll be an outsider of the millionaires club.
Do you think most of the people who used Bitcoin to buy drugs back in the days are millionaires today? If your answer is “Probably not”, then you could suffer the same miss if you don’t plan to be firm for the minimal investment you are making today on NYC coins.
After all, it’s bad habits, greed, and a self-sabotage belief system that make a person always stuck in a dead end.
Well, you may say, I’m flipping my coins only to get more coins... That would only be good if it doesn’t become a habit. Once it is a habit, you won’t be able to quit. At some point, you won’t know when to quit flipping. And one day, when the price of NYC all of sudden increases by 1,000% or 10,000% in one day, you may find yourself stuck with a bunch of nickels and dimes again and not owning much of or any NYC at all.
So, are you dying for my advice yet?
Well, I don’t have any. Just wanted to make you think a little bit about your millions that you have today...
(Read quick before I decide to delete it without any warning! Haha..)
I've seen several posts about the price of dogecoin and I won't bore you guys with another speculation but I would like to know why so many people think a dollar a doge is so unrealistic? You know what's unrealistic online money, the idea that digital money could be used to purchase goods and services. Hell the idea of the internet is completely unrealistic from the perspective of someone 25 years ago. "Talking to people through a computer? More computing power in my pocket than there is in all of NASA (in the 80s)? Total bs" But guess what we're here, we're at a point when some many "impossible" things that would have been dismissed are here now. Hell even when Bitcoin started they were a flipping joke, most people laughed at the very concept of it, but five years later they are worth over 450 dollars a coin compared to less than half a penny when they started. So my question to the nay sayers is why them and not us? Haven't we already done some pretty amazing things in these short five months. I don't know what the future holds, but one thing I am certain of is that this community is nothing short of amazing and if we continue to grow who says we won't be on Titan forget the earth moon. submitted by
It's raining and I'm in the back of a deluxe armored military van speeding down a nearly empty highway. I check my watch: two in the morning. We're a little bit ahead of schedule but I'm not going to let that bother me. The van is full of characters. To my direct left, a crass and obese man named Walter snaps his fingers, each snap producing a small amount of flame. This is just a warm up for him. When the time comes, the snaps will create a lot more action than your average Bic. submitted by
He's been talking about a sexual exploit from the year before and up until now I hadn't been paying much attention to him.
“So, I was in my 20s and I had been doing the jizz coin thing for awhile, you know, for kicks, and I remember this one chick at the store...”
Dee, the only woman in the van, perked up from shining a long piece of wood in her lap that looked ever so normal until it began launching every dark magic spell known to man, the so-called Demon Wand, and asked the question that I was really hoping someone would ask. “Wait... what's jizz coin? Is that like Bitcoin?”
A disgusting teeth-less grin spread across the fat man's greasy face. “Oh, so much worse, toots. It's like this... I take whatever change I can find around the house. Nickels, pennies, quarters, whatever. It's really effective if I can get my mitts on a Susan B Anthony coin.” He pulled out a dime from his pocket and showed the now-curious audience. “I lay it down on a flat surface. A coffee table works perfect for me. Then I rub one out and blow on the coin.”
A chorus of groans and sweet-Christ's filled the air of the van.
He went on, “Then I let the coin dry. You know, don't want to make it too obvious. When it's good and- heh- crusty, I take it to whatever local shop I'm doing my weekly grocery run and make sure I place that sucker in the prettiest cashier's hand. I call it,” he finished with a flourish and flipped the dime in his hand at Dee. “jizz coining.”
Dee immediately vaporized the coin with a simple flick of the Wand and stared bullets at the repulsive man across from her.
As the remaining men in the van began to either laugh, become mad, or some kind of weird combination of both, the Sarge spoke up. His voice was stern and domineering yet always held a fatherly touch. “Alright, focus up!”
Everyone but Walter stopped making noise. The Sarge had that effect on people.
“I'm sure you're all wondering why I pulled you out of your beds at one in the morning and told you to be battle ready within the hour. Folks,” he cleared his throat. “we have a lead on the Purple Haze.”
A few gasps. One man even snickered. It's not hard to understand why. Some people weren't even convinced that Purple Haze existed. A few men, myself included, believed the name was merely a cover story by those in power for whatever terrible terroristic act was committed with no clear perpatrator or supe stepping up to take credit.
“I know, I know... it's probably a wash. But I can't pass up an opportunity to follow a lead on that son of a bitch.”
“If he's even real...” muttered Walter.
“Well, tonight we're going to find out, tubby,” the Sarge said with a smirk.
The Sarge was not the most powerful supe in the van. He wasn't even the fifth most powerful supe in the van. I think the most I had seen his elevated strength do was lift a car off the ground, something I had seen fellow students do in elementary school. But what the Sarge lacked in dazzling feats of being a supe, he made up with his cunning and leadership skills. He was a master strategist. His contingency plans had contingency plans that also, just for fun, had contingency plans.
I had to wonder then, why was the Sarge chasing tall tales? Why were we piled into a stuffy van at two in the morning? Why had I kissed my wife goodbye and told her I had to report for duty? For this? For something or someone that we had no evidence existed.
To my right, a small boy of Asian parentage whispered, “There is always the chance that Purple Haze doesn't leave anyone behind to say he exists.”
I turned to White and crouched down to speak to him. “What's that?”
“I said- he could be undocumented and unproven because anyone who could say he existed is not alive to say otherwise.”
“White,” I said with slight amusement. “it's 2018. There are literally CCTV cameras everywhere. Hell, I think I have one in my bathroom. If something that powerful existed, I think we'd at least have a terrible photograph of him.”
“Do you believe that?” the boy asked, his wide eyed 10 year glance piercing through my soul.
“White, you're one of the most powerful psychics in the world and your balls haven't even dropped yet. You know exactly what I believe and think.”
He smiled. “My mother told me it's still polite to ask.”
Walter noticed our conversation and shouted over me to White. “Hey, what's the little chink got to say? He telling you all the dirty things I'm thinking about doing to sweet little Dee over there?” He guffaws, his gut protruding from the bottom of his flak jacket.
White looked up at Dee then at Walter. “Why do you want her to shove that Wand up your rectum?”
Walter's face went blank. It was soon replaced by immense anger. “Why you little bas--” He raised his hands up and placed his unsnapped fingers in front of him.
“That's enough!” the Sarge yelled. “We're two minutes out. Get focused. White, are you picking up on anything?”
“Fear... guilt... anger... more fear...” White whispered, his eyes closed tightly.
“Yes, but are you picking up on anything from outside the van?”
The van fills with nervous laughter. The kid wasn't making that part up.
“No, Sarge. I'll keep you informed.”
“Alright, see that you do.” The Sarge pulled out a manila folder from behind him and flipped through it. As he flipped through it, he started listing off positions. “Walter, Fulton, and Jackson- you make us an entrance. The site we're traveling to has wall-to-wall fencing and steel doors. We'll need an entrance within 45 seconds of exiting the bus. Vogel?” I perked up and he nodded at me. “Air support for any outside pests.” I nodded back and pulled out my automatic rifle, locking and loading a fresh magazine. “Dee, White, you're both with me. We'll enter, get our bearings, and clear a path for Stallworth. If there's a fire fight or if this Purple Haze fella is there and things like we're going to die, we go to plan B.”
Dee looked up from the Demon Wand and asks, “What's Plan B?”
The Sarge tapped his fingers on a silver briefcase at his feet. “We cancel their series.”
The mood in the van immediately became even more cautious with the knowledge that a Cancellation bomb was on board. Considered by many in the supes community as the ultimate last resort, a Cancellation bomb nullified any supe for a range of time. Some bombs were merely made to dull supe abilities for a few seconds. Others, like the one at Sarge's feet, were designed to permanently cancel any supe's abilities for a long time- years, decades, and in some cases an entire lifetime.
White whispered again, this time without looking up from the floor. “He's not bluffing. He'd actually do it.”
I looked up at the Sarge and saw him solemnly latch the briefcase to his waist. Would he? Could he? Could he actually condemn an elite unit of police supes to a life of being un-powered?
“If I have to set it off, it has a twenty second timer and a two hundred feet radius. If you're outside that range, you'll probably only be out of power for a minute or two.” His words were surprisingly not reassuring.
A knock came from the driver's portion of the van, signalling a thirty second arrival.
“Lock and load!” the Sarge shouted.
The van pulled to a slow roll and before it can even fully stop the back door was ripped off its hinges.
* * *
I was about forty feet above the ground. The rain made it difficult for me to reach max flight. I pulled my flight goggles off and tried to get a clear look at the chaos going on below me. The van was in flames. I could see Dee and the Sarge standing back to back, the Sarge landing blow after blow knocking back random attackers and Dee using the Demon Wand as a ranged weapon on whatever fool approached her. I tried to locate White but couldn't lay eyes on him.
“Shit, shit, shit...” I muttered trying to find the small boy. He was a soldier, same as me. But his age and general lack of ever getting to live a normal life landed me with an older sibling complex that I couldn't control. For the time being, the Sarge and Dee would be fine. Their shadows didn't seem fazed by the onslaught of faceless drones coming at them.
I lowered myself to just ten feet above the ground and tried to do simple reconnaissance. The site, which turned out to be an empty warehouse in the middle of farm country, had barely on movement. I assumed that most of the site's occupants were currently trying to kill any number of my squad mates. The warehouse's front door was open and a bright light from inside of cast shadows on a small frame approaching the warehouse.
White, I thought, jetting myself forward as fast as my own piece of the supe pie could take me.
As I approached the boy, I lowered myself on to my feet and ran the last few feet to him. I grabbed him by the shoulders and turned him around. His eyes were full of tears and he was sobbing uncontrollably.
“White!” I shouted, looking around and ensuring our privacy. “White, what's wrong?”
“Shame!” he blubbered through ten year old tears. “So much shame. And hatred.” His eyes slowly rolled up over my head and the top of the warehouse. “He's... here.”
I slowly turned my head and saw a sight I wouldn't be forgetting for years. A man stood there. I mean, I call him a man. He was ten feet tall. Every part of his body was at peak muscular density. He was massive. And his skin shone with a light purple light. His skin was purple. His aura was purple. His eyes had purple pupils. “Jesus Christ!” I yelled. I turned my weapon on him and left off three rounds.
The bullets stopped less than a foot from him and fell harmlessly to the ground.
His voice echoed throughout the warehouse. It sounded like he was speaking to me from inside my head. It was clear. It was concise. “Never bring a gun to a god fight, Vogel.”
Without hesitation, I grabbed White by the scruff of his vest and pulled him into flight with me, launching us into the rainy air as fast as my abilities would take us. I looked down at the burning van and saw Dee and the Sarge still engaging in close quarters combat with their attackers. I shouted down at them, “Cancel it! CANCEL NOW!”
The Sarge briefly took his eyes off the mindless goon in front of him and looked up at me. Even through the rain, I could see the conviction on his face. He knew that I wouldn't call for Plan B unless it was absolutely necessary. He knew that what I had found inside that warehouse wasn't going to be solved by punches to the face, fiery finger snaps, or even dark magic spells. He delivered a knock out blow to a man in front of him, opened the briefcase, and set the bomb.
Thirty seconds, I thought. Dee would be fine. She wasn't a supe. Her powers came from the Wand and its makers. The Sarge would sacrifice himself if it meant impeding whatever was coming out of that warehouse. I looked back at the warehouse as I flew higher and higher into the cold wet sky. I saw a purple shape come out and make a bee line for the Sarge. For only a second, I made eye contact with the purple thing and almost immediately began to fall from the sky. The ground looked to make friends with me as I fell faster and faster. I closed my eyes and held White close to chest, wishfully hoping that I could at least spare him as I was tractor beamed into a death fall.
A foot from the ground, I thought of my wife and closed my eyes. I'd die but the boy would live and that felt fine to me.
* * *
I opened my eyes expecting to see whatever waits for us in the afterlife and instead saw only the ground, still a foot away from my face. I let out a long exhale. I was alive. For the time being at least. I looked up from my precarious floating position. White was already on the ground and running towards the ten foot behemoth that now stood only a short distance away.
The Sarge looked at the man with eyes full of wonderment, bewilderment, and fear. “Fifteen seconds, asshole.” The subtext of his statement was clear: fifteen seconds until you and me and everyone else here is on the same level playing field.
That voice, that damned booming voice spoke up again. “Oh Sargent, my Sargent...” the purple thing looked at the briefcase as it beeped away. “Did you think it was going to be that easy?” The briefcase rose from the ground and launched itself into the sky at speeds that would make a Phantom jet blush. A few seconds later and almost half a mile in the sky, the briefcase exploded outward. We were spared from a life of normalcy only to be faced with the ten foot purple problem that stood in front of us.
The Sarge gritted his teeth and pounced into action. He reached the burning police van and in one swift motion picked the vehicle up over his head and swung it into the purple thing's body. When he pulled the van back, he was shocked to see that his enemy hadn't even budged.
The thing spoke again, “You're starting to piss me off.”
The Sarge muttered, “You're a murdering terrorist. I don't care about your feelings.”
He pointed his long purple index finger at the Sarge and with a flick of it launched the Sarge backwards a hundred feet, a large trail of upended dirt following his body's path.
The purple thing turned its attention to me. “Vogel, say my name and know me for who I am.”
I clenched my teeth. “You're Purple Haze.”
“That is corr--”
A small red seeker shot erupted on his back. He turned to face Dee who had the Demon Wand at the ready.
“Deidra Cartwright. The cursed girl. The black sheep. The last of her line.” He swiped his hand through the air and brought her within inches of his face. “And all she has is a little toy.” The Demon Wand wouldn't leave her stone cold grip as it was lifted up to his eye level. “I'll admit-- I wasn't sure how this form would react to dark magic.” He looked at where the shot had landed and smiled. “Kind of tickled.”
I had seen that Wand turn lower level supes into mulch. I had seen her lift an entire city bus off its axels to shake out bad men hidden inside of it. I had seen her defeat high level dark magic users with a single attack spell. And this man had just referred to the source of all that power as nothing more than a toy.
“Kill me. You'll never get your hands on the Demon Wand.”
“I'm...” he chose his next words carefully. “not going to kill you yet.”
It was the Sarge. He limped towards us, his right arm held to his ribs.
“The return of the delusional freedom fighter.”
“Yeah, that's right, you purple fuck.” He held up a middle finger. “You forgot one of us when you were flinging us about like play things.”
“And who's that?”
The Sarge shouted, “Stallworth, NOW!”
Within a millisecond, the right side of Purple Haze's head erupted as a man grew from only a few nanometers in size to a fully grown man. He grew... from inside Purple Haze's skull. Stallworth landed on his feet and began to wipe the blood and viscera off his skin tight latex suit and mask.
I half-expected that to do the trick.
I'm an optimist like that.
Purple Haze just stood there, half of his head just dangling on a thin piece of skin. His still intact eye looked over at the damage done by the Human Expansion and he smiled. “Well, that was unexpected.” The missing side of his face rose up to its former place and began to reassimilate itself with the rest of his purple head.
“Violent rage,” White said, his eyes practically bulging from his small skull. “Patience and violent rage and hatred and shame. We need to go.”
The Sarge was in shock. He had expected that to do the trick. He had expected Purple Haze to not be able to recover from basically having his head turned inside out. When you are a master strategist and everything fails, every contingency of every contingency of every contingency fails, what do you do?
“Dee, an exit, please.”
Dee slapped the Demon Wand against the ground and created a six foot portal. She jumped through and was quickly followed by Walter who had, been hiding just out of sight. I looked at Purple Haze as his head began to reform and jumped in, pulling White along with me. The Sarge shook his head and muttered something that sounded like 'until next time' before falling into the ground portal.
The Knight's Templar is still active, but operates differently than how people think. It never really ended, it just went underground. Most of the visible groups are not the genuine article of the real thing. A lot of them actually just work regular jobs, pretty much anything they can get their hands on and live as frugally as possible foregoing many comforts. submitted by
Even if they have a gig working at McDonald's or something and most of their money has gone to rent and food and they literally have pennies left, every extra red cent after that is handed over to the Templars and stored to gather interest. Even pennies on the ground are picked up. People like this are referred to as "Gatherers".
They keep it in physical cash, in banks, digital currency, and even vast vaults of precious metals, and it's stored in different places all over the world. They're behind some, not all, of the tungsten filled gold bars.
They've been sneaking as much gold as they can. They know about the Annunaki and have been gathering gold for wealth purposes, but also specifically for their return, but they're not sure exactly what Annunaki do with it.
They own probably most of the digital currency in the world. Even if it's "owned" by an individual, they are more than likely affiliated with the Templars. They mine the hell out of it. They tap into the electricity grid and bypass meters to steal power to fuel their mining rigs. They're built from scavenged computer parts.
They have some hidden ones all over the place, and even tap into the utilities down in sewers. They do a lot of things to save money and wanted to use sewage for liquid cooling of their rigs, but if they messed it up they would have lost the rig and had a foul smelling mess to clean up.
They pirate a lot of movies and games so they can have some entertainment in order to save money. Some of them do it as a hobby to bring a little joy to the others in their group, and also release it to the rest of the world in torrents. They do a lot of dumpster diving, scavenging of all sorts, and are expert couponers.
Lots of can recycling as well. They used to gather up cans and bottles from the areas surrounding Michigan, but a lot of people were getting in on that and the areas around it started getting bare. After a while the fuel cost for transport started not being worth it.
They do a lot of Ebay, Craigslist, car, and real estate flipping. They've been known to sabotage properties and whole neighborhoods to decrease property value then buy them at a cheaper price, fix them back up again, then sell them. A few properties have been done like this multiple times.
Some of the gathering of wealth is done by criminal activity. It involves things where people won't get hurt, like cigarette smuggling, and selling counterfeit goods. Some of the smash and grabs of jewelry stores are them. That type of thing is covered by insurance, so they see no harm done. Other things are specifically insurance fraud, but "good luck proving anything". They've gotten exceedingly efficient at it.
They've robbed their own stores before. Another thing they've done is had their own real estate appraiser to artificially inflate the value of properties then intentionally burn them down and collect a big profit from the insurance payout. They've kept valuable coins, bars, and artwork in private residences which they insured, then had one of their own "burglarize" the place and collect insurance for it.
They also just rob criminals who have just robbed others. Sometimes they give it back to the victim if they can find them, but don't go out of their way investigating things. Some have intentionally gone to prison to make money on the economy in there.
They're trying to cool it on the more unethical practices though and it's just something they've gotten carried away with. They used to follow the 10 commandments to a T, but started getting loose with it over the centuries as long as it involved gathering wealth.
At times things have been taken too far and have made the news before and there was collateral damage, but they try the best they can to keep the unethical activity within their group and just exploit the system. They've been doing this a long time and they've become a bit out of touch from society even though they've also been walking among everyone else.
Some of them are so hardcore that all they do is work multiple jobs and have no hobbies other than work. Some of them work themselves too hard or get injured and they start using drugs to keep them going. It keeps them going for a little while longer, but it has a detrimental effect in the long run. Some get hooked and can't stop, then feel the guilt about the money that they should be saving going towards their addiction instead of "back home".
They try to eat just basic but healthy food, and sometimes splurge on some dollar menu, but feel guilty about that too. They're allowed some minor comforts like this to keep up morale, but the guilt gets to them later because of the way they were raised.
They have different people within their group. There's military, intelligence, scribes, scientists, engineers, doctors. There are people who live full time in underground facilities. There are some who do about 50/50, and others who live full time on the outside. They refer to the surface as the "outs" just like prison slang. Anyone who takes up work involving going on the outside undergoes combat training.
The underground facilities are built circular like a ring within a ring reminiscent a bull's-eye. There's Faraday shielding all around it and hardened for EMP. Living quarters are the outside ring. The first inner ring is where they do their farming. The food isn't anything special, just basic organically grown stuff. Whatever isn't grown is bought in bulk in vast quantities. Lots of stored food in huge warehouses.
The "dot" at the center is their armor and military stuff. There's an elevator which goes down and that's where all their research and development is. They have archives down there too. Lots of ancient documents and scrolls. Mostly religious related.
Their military typically wears Urban Camo pattern. Their weapons are just regular guns, but usually the best the outside has to offer. They make some of their own, but it's usually just mixed parts and slight improvements on what's already been made. They do have better ammunition though, which is what they tend to focus on.
One thing they have is plastic explosive instead of gunpowder and striking the primer produces something like piezoelectric charge which detonates it. It has a higher muzzle velocity around double what conventional ammo has and they also have armor piercing bullets. There's no hiding behind cover with this stuff. They've experimented with Teflon coating them and supposedly have something better than Teflon, but that was a while ago.
They have something like "Power Armor" that they refer to as "Exosuits". It looks a lot like the Cyborg Ninja suit from Metal Gear Solid 2, only it has an inch thick ballistic glass lens for the eyes in a cross shape. No swords.
It's in the black and grey colors like Urban Camo. It's slim enough to be worn under clothes if you buy them a large enough size. It's a one piece armored suit that augments strength and speed. It's quiet enough to walk around without anyone noticing, but you can hear the motors if you put your ear up to them or have a sensitive enough microphone.
The suit can pressurize itself for either high g-forces in aircraft, or for stopping blood flow in case a projectile made its way thought. It can have movements programmed in as presets, like a higher and more efficient jump. It can also help steady aim from recoil of firearms.
The joints are flexible material. It has built in fully automatic guns and mini explosive homing rockets. There's a non lethal pneumatic "blast" to knock people down in if it's needed. It has a built in air compressor to recharge it, but it takes a while. There's removable ballistic shields that can attach to the forearms.
It protects against small arms, fire, and even plasma. The armor is something like a carbon fiber frame with various layers of different materials to protect against different things while still being lightweight. It has built in visual enhancement as well as acoustic amplification. It's also air and water tight and there's also a sonar system, and an integrated rebreather. It specifically built to protect against nuclear, biological, and chemical threats.
It sounds stupid, but it also has rocket boots. It's a single use charge that can get someone over a wall or other obstacle. The whole suit runs on batteries. It has a 12 hour run time with all the systems active. It has a backup hydrogen power cell for emergencies that can be refilled with water if need be. Distilled water is preferable, but tap water will work.
They have their own Navy which includes aircraft and boats. They just take old things like F-16s and B-2 bombers, gut them, and retrofit them with their own technology and are vastly superior to any F-22 or F-35. The boats are pretty much the same way and are stored in cliffs by the coast. They keep the shells this way to that the visual appearance is the same to keep everything else more hidden.
They have a few underground facilities. Most of them are for storing gold and technology. There's a main facility below the equator. Its exact location is classified. These types of facilities are protected by automated turrets and patrolling drones. They kind of look like R2-D2, but not quite. A little more refined.
They have nanotechnology, but don't believe in bio modification like genetic engineering. They practice eugenics and selective breeding. They don't believe in marking their bodies with scarring or tattoos, but some of them do so they can maintain cover in society.
There was some conflict between MIB and the Knight's Templar, but it was due to misunderstanding and compartmentalization. They have advanced technology and this was a part of it. Weapons, armor, anti gravity, etc. Not as good as MIB stuff though.
They don't have time travel, but there was an attempt at utilizing it for manipulating digital currency, specifically bitcoin to make more money. They believe this is what got the MIB on their back and raided. They describe it like a SWAT team on steroids. They have technology and intelligence gathering and still didn't see us coming.
They figured the MIB raid was about confiscation. Some people died, but everything got cleared up. Someone gave them some intel that if they literally just set their weapons down the conflict would stop without getting fired upon anymore and it went exactly that way. They're not sure where that intel came from.
They have their own intelligence gathering like CIA, and also take part in assassination. It's mainly about protecting the technology and wealth by any means necessary. The technology is more about protecting the wealth, and the research they put into the weaponry was to protect it even from the governments if they needed to. They weren't going to take the chance of being wiped out and having the wealth taken again.
They do some work loosely with the Vatican, but it's mostly religion related. They do believe in a supernatural God and Christ, but they also acknowledge a science based element to it all. They follow the Ten Commandments and a lot of the old scripture, but adapt to life on the outside. They tend to not curse and use foul language unless they're trying to blend in.
They live a lot like ultra conservative orthodox Catholics, but try to blend in on the surface as much as possible. So much so that something like doggy style sex would be considered kink to them. For them, sex is only for the purpose of procreation and that's it. There's no sex out of wedlock. When people who have been working on the outside come back they sometimes get scolded as being degenerates. Not always seriously.
A life of frugality sounds pretty hard, but they're raised this way their whole life with their parents and their parent's parents living like this going back generations. Small bits of joy and splurging go a long way. They used to live their lives more out of balance with no splurging or entertainment whatsoever, only wealth gathering, but take a more balanced approach these days.
The balanced approach has increased wealth generation by about 10% over a couple decades. That doesn't sound like much, but they track everything down to the smallest hundredth decimal and this is a big change for them. By allowing them to spend more money, they've had the effect of making more money. It's proven that happy workers are more productive works.
The rumors of them having artifacts they've been holding onto are true. The "Holy Grail", "Spear of Destiny", and a "Piece of the Holy Cross". This is something that's compartmentalized even from most of them, but one thing about it is those whom know about these artifacts are sure that they're not literal and are more than likely just codenames for something else. What exactly they are is unknown at this time, but the one constant is that they're ancient.
