Possible homebrew features in a horror campaign?

2021.12.01 02:32 ChumIsFum01 Possible homebrew features in a horror campaign?

Hello y'all! I'm a DM looking for advice. I plan on DMing a 5e homebrewed horror campaign, and I was wondering about a few mechanics I had in mind.
So, for this first mechanic, I call it "Imagination". It would work similarly to Bloodborne's insight where, the higher your imagination, the more otherworldy beings you can perceive, the more your mind's eye can imagine. You gain imagination points by engaging in good roleplay, puzzle solving, finding more efficient means to an end, etc. Basically, it would take inspiration's role and have more of a narrative driven effect vs a more mechanical effect that inspiration gives you.
For the second mechanic, I call it "Sanity". I know that CoC has a sanity system, so you might ask why I don't run a CoC game. There's a few simple reasons. A: I'm a student, I don't have a lot of time anymore outside of school, especially not enough time to learn a whole new system to GM, B: I'm extremely familiar with D&D and it's kind of my comfort zone, and C: None of the people I plan to play this game with are familiar at all with CoC.
So, onto the mechanic. Sanity is a mechanic that, like imagination, will be narrative driven. The higher your sanity goes, the worse and worse your mental state goes. Everybody starts with a 10 in sanity. As your sanity decreases, your mental state also decreases. You'll start seeing things nobody else can see, you'll start imagining other party members being gruesomely murdered, you'll start hearing voices, your vision will go blurry, etc. It will have mechanical effects, however they will take a backseat to the narrative effects. Mechanically, sanity will act similar to exhaustion, however nowhere near as punishing. The effects go as follows:
10: Nothing
9-8: Faint whispers in your head, -1 to intelligence and wisdom rolls
7-6: Whispers growing louder, -2 to intelligence and wisdom rolls
5-4: Vision starts to blur, you start seeing people who aren't there: -2 to intelligence and wisdom rolls, -1 to dexterity rolls, possibility to have a fake enemy in your line of sight.
3: Vision blurs heavier, facades become more common, reality warps more: -3 to intelligence and wisdom rolls, -2 to dexterity rolls, higher likelihood for there to be a facade.
2: Visions of loved ones being murdered. -4 to intelligence and wisdom rolls, -3 to dexterity rolls, and the need to roll a skill check to see if you are to believe these visions. The players can choose whichever skills they want to try and roll, however they'd need to convince me how they'd do so beforehand. So, let's say a player has a high medicine, they could roll a medicine and persuade me by saying "Medicine could help me realize that what I'm seeing is part of my breaking psyche, and I need medicinal treatment immediately" or something like that.
1: Insanity, self-hatred, seeing things, etc. would be part of this final sanity level.
Now, the way I thought that might be a good way to regain sanity points is, during a long rest, you can forgo one of the abilities you'd regain from said long rest and regain a sanity point instead, up to 10 sanity points for 10 abilities you forgo. You could also use spell slots in this instance, too. Also, certain spells could raise your sanity counter, as follows:
1: Cure Wounds, Healing Word: Cure Wounds and Healing Word can, if chosen, raise your sanity counter by 1
2: Prayer of Healing, Mass Healing Word: Prayer of Healing and Mass Healing Word can heal a total of 3 sanity counters, and you can divide it up however you choose amongst those around you.
3: Mass Cure Wounds: Mass Cure Wounds can heal a total of 6 sanity counters, and you can divide it up however you choose amongst those around you.
4: Heal: Heal can cure a single target of 8 sanity counters.
5: Power Word: Heal: Power Word: Heal can cure a single target of all their sanity counters
6: False Life: False Life can temporarily heal you of 1 sanity counter for the duration of the spell.
7: Calm Emotions: Calm Emotions can be used to suppress the effects of sanity for the duration of the spell.
And also, Paladin's Lay on Hands: You can expend 5 Lay on Hand points to heal a player of 1 sanity counter.
Do you all think this is fair? Do you think it could be implemented well for a horror campaign? If anything is unbalanced, unfair, or just dumb, please let me know in the comments! I want all the feedback I can get.

2021.12.01 02:32 primax34 S21 ultra exynos lagging whole using citra and citra mmj

I tried both citra on the playstore and citra mmj but I keep on getting 30fps and the game running at 30-50 speed while playing Mario kart 7. On the menu it's 60fps and running 100% speed. Anyone know a fix for this if it is fixable? It's very hard to get a snapdragon variant of the s21 ultra in my country and yes I know snapdragon will work better for emulators.

2021.12.01 02:32 turdfergusonswife Toxic brother

Sorry if this is too long. I really am a lurker on reddit for the most part and I mostly am in groups to really read through posts with like minded people. I sought out this group because I'm pretty angry right now.
To preface this, my brother is older. He has always kind of been the screw up throughout our lives. I got good grades, was the salutatorian in my class, went to college on a full ride cross country and track scholarship, I have a masters degree, etc. My brother did not get good grades, he struggled through school. He had potential in sports, specifically running but he was into partying, drinking, smoking, drugs, etc more than anything else. He tried college for one semester, flunked out. He went into the navy, almost got kicked out. He's had a few different jobs since then, construction, factory jobs since. Nothing wrong with that but trying to paint a picture here in our differences in our lives and the paths we carved out for ourselves.
My brother has the tendency to start bringing up politics when I speak with him and we are on the opposite side of things for sure. I often quote Ted Lasso when describing him, "full blown q'anon". We live states away from each other so it's strictly texts and calls for us. I've had to block him before in the past because he'll go on tirades and his go to is to call me an "indoctrinated retarded liberal ". I've actually never told him where I stand politically. I usually try to change the topic of conversation or just get off the phone with him. He doesn't offer me the same in return.
Now fast forward last week. I had a coworker quit at my work because her brother died of covid and she was going through too much at the time. One day later my dad tells me my brother has covid. So naturally I'm super worried, he's not vaxxed. But I didn't check in with him because I didn't want it to get political so I called my mom and texted her to see how he was doing. I texted him on Thanksgiving and told him happy Thanksgiving, basic I know but again, avoiding politics.
He calls me tonight. Tells me he's fine. I'm glad. But then he asks me how I like the gas prices. Then he asks me how it feels to know I voted for Biden (again, have never told him who I voted for). Then he tells me he has more antibodies than me because I got the shots and he had covid. I naturally don't engage with him because I try not to. I had to hang up on him.
Then he proceeds to text me the meanest, nastiest things. I've apparently never worked hard in my life, I only care about my parents money and I've gotten everything paid for by them, etc. I have never had to work for anything in my life according to him. Told me to fuck off, wants nothing to do with me, says I don't give shit about him because I didn't once ask him how he was doing with covid. He told me to get a lawyer for when my parents pass away. It was seriously awful.
I'm honestly shocked still. I've worked so hard my entire life at everything I do and for him to come at me like that, it was so dirty, I can't with all of it right now. There is so much more to this story though. I'll just say this, I often hid in my closet from him growing up. My parents always thought it was just typical brother picking on his younger sister shit but I didn't tell on the fuckface a lot because I was too scared to.
You bet your ass I sent screenshots to my mom this time. I don't care if it seems juvenile but I've cut him off and wanted to let my parents know why.
