(DnD) Three Levels of Plot

darkmoon-hairyspider2The AWOL gnomes from Faroth island stole a jeweled sword from a Yuan-ti captain. This news is heard by the Thieves Dragon Guild, established by Rodorax hundreds of years ago. This jeweled sword interests him in his dreams, and Rodorax’s dream voice speaks to the guild leader, establishing a grand bounty on the sword. Bring the sword to the cairn east of Galentaspar and be paid richly.

Well, what proud, devious and frustrated naval commander would not pay for such knowledge? What will happen when they all meet and the cairn east of Galentaspar? Who else has ears on that string, who would send our heros on their quest?

VirtualBox: boot from USB image

Projects like OPNsense.org provide you with an .img file that you would dd to a USB device to boot from. This is not obvious how to use from VirtualBox. You need to convert that into a VMDK file. Basically, the command I used was:

vboxmanage convertfromraw OPNsense-19.7-OpenSSL-serial-amd64.img /tank/VMs/4544-opnsense-19-freebsd/opensense-19.7-usb.vmdk –format vmdk

Then attach that VMDK file to your virtual SATA controller and when you boot really quick! Hit F12 and choose option 2. That’s your USB device.

 

OpenVPN easy-rsa notes

Get the recent easy-rsa scripts:

# git clone openvpn/easy-rsa
git checkout v3.0.6
# copy easy-rsa directory to /etc/openvpn/server
cd /etc/openvpn/server/easy-rsa
./easyrsa init-pki
./easyrsa build-ca # this will need a password
./easyrsa gen-dh
./easyrsa gen-req servername.com nopass
./easyrsa sign-req server servername.com # requires ca passwd from above

Now you can edit your server/server.conf file and fire it up with

systemctl enable openvpn@server
systemctl start openvpn@server

and watch journalctl while you do that.

Generating a client:

./easyrsa gen-req clientname.com nopass
./easyrsa sign-req client clientname.com #requires ca passwd

Example conf file looks like:

client
proto udp
dev tun
remote support.foo.net 1194
keepaliave 10 120
keysize 256
cipher AES-256-CBC
Ā verb 3
compress lz4-v2

DnD Halloween Reynolds Oneshot Dinner šŸŽƒ

Bring your warm cloak, lantern and brace for the cold. Trek to the Reynolds’ for an afternoon DnD adventure that will leave you spooked!

Please bring your favorite drinks and other GF or other diet preferences. Jed will be grilling varieties of giant fingers (pork) at 5pm, Eloise will be baking witch’s fingers, and maybe we’ll snack on sweet plucked eyeballs for snacks!
