Cognitive Association

Let's play the picture game! I'll post a picture then the next person will then post a picture that is somehow related to the first. Either through words, colors, subject matter, concept or whatever you feel connects the two. This is a game of "Cognitive Association":https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Association_%28psychology%29 which allows our brains to connect abstract ideas. This is very important to GMs making their own campaigns because a good campaign is full of interconnecting puzzle pieces. Games like this helps the brain recognize these patterns so we can better place them in our stories. (plus it's fun to post funny pictures and chat about it. Creates a sense of community.) It's also a practice in the way different people associate different things. As one person may post pictures with similar color palettes while another posts ones with the same subject matter. This helps GMs learn the differences between the way their players think as well and understanding helps grow stronger bonds.

Anyway, first pic:

    Oh come now KVP, this is supposed to be a light-hearted topic. There are plenty of bug related and official posts for you to vent on.

    okay, well, my 'endless spiral of geologic time' image was riffing of of killer's now-deleted image, because, you know, these problems seem to be eternal...

    going off of NikMak's last image instead:

    Funny, I think of Split as sort of (post) industrial... Unless that's a smugglers home away from home; but it does match the image very well :)

    Hey guys, on a similar theme, what is the best way to set up a picture link in the wiki these days.

    [[File:544234 | class=media-item-align-center | 200px | Garden_City_.jpg]]


    Using the code from the picture above, how does one now turn this picture into a link to a new wiki page. The old way I used to do this doesn't seem to work anymore.

    I make a direct link. Most of the time I upload a picture, right click on it, copy its location. This usually gets me the direct address of the thumbnail, so I remove the first part that says thumb, and then it leads to my picture. Then I add the link code.

    @!(media-item-align-center){height:162px;width:225px}https://db4sgowjqfwig.cloudfront.net/campaigns/54055/assets/449112/scroll-sword-3263157_small.png(Kingdoms Wiki)!:http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaigns/unconquered-kingdoms/wiki_pages/[email protected]

    Thias is what it looks like before I delete the thumb part.

    @https://db4sgowjqfwig.cloudfront.net/campaigns/54055/assets/449112/[email protected]

    So removed the:

    @[email protected]

    and I have the address.

    Thanks SkidAce

    Your reminder of that infamous Right Click was strangely a Eureka moment!

    In the end I did the old [[File:544234 | class=media-item-align-center | 200px | Garden_City_.jpg]] method and that actually seemed to work.

    I think I actually just made a silly coding error in my first attempt.

    Thanks KVP too.
