Is Guardian of the Guildpact still played?
What playsets are a must to have (even multiples of) as a paper Pauper player? I would like to compile a list, so looking for suggestions. So far I have:
Delver of Secrets
Augur of Bolas
Smash to Smithereens
Journey to Nowhere
Circle of Protection(s)
Vines of Vastwood
Gray Merchant of Asphodel
Burning Tree Emissary
Relic of Progenitus

They are removing the opt-out for collecting telemetry, which raised a lot of eyebrows. People are concerned about their privacy. Theoretically it could be possible to derive which media files are watched from its size & bitrate. So Plex scrambled to address it over the weekend and issued a new statement.
I'm still not 100% reassured, and this mandatory opt-in goes very much against the new EU General Data Protection Regulation, which will come into effect coming May. They might be forced to roll it back, atleast in the European Union. Untill then I might get myself a Pi-hole.Edited by Wolphard
I take it you haven't been to Paris? Just a heads up, it smells like piss & is full of Frenchmen. I'm not a fan. But I know it's one of those cities everyone wants to visit, I did too. When visiting Paris, all the stuff you listed are good stops. A few additions you might want to consider are:
- Tour Montparnasse - A skyscraper in La Défense, higher than the Eiffel Tower. Added bonus, no stairsclimbing but turbolifts.
- La Grande Arche - In the same business district as Le Tour Montparnasse, it's 50m high and you go to the top in a glass lift tube.
- Hôtel Les Invalides - It holds Napoleon's tomb.
- Cimetière du Père-Lachaise - A cemetary. But with the graves of Jim Morrison & Edith Piaf.
I myself didn't care much for Le Sacré-Coeur, Montmartre & Centre Pompidou. But they are often mentioned as good places to visit, so I didn't want to leave them out. Why don't you want to visit Disneyland btw? Figured it would be right up your alley.
You mentioned you didn't speak French. A lot of French people don't like to, cannot, or sometimes simply refuse to speak English. They suck, seriously. Be polite. Ask them, in French, if they would please speak English to you. Starting off in English will often cause them to dig in and rattle on in French like there is no tomorrow.
Three cities in one trip does sound a bit much, especially in that timespan. But at that time of year it isn't usually that hot still. (I find little worse than being on a city-trip when it's 30 degrees or more.) If you end up driving through France: The Loire Valley is supposed to be good. So is the Rhône Valley/Provence. S/W Germany is also very pretty, and it has Europa Park. Unless I'm mistaking, the biggest Theme Park in Europe. We visited it late April this year.
The grandstanding never ends.
