Suffragan bishop

A suffragan bishop is a bishop subordinate to a metropolitan bishop or diocesan bishop and are not jurisdictional in their role. Suffragan bishops may be charged by a metropolitan to oversee a suffragan diocese, they may be assigned to an area. In the Anglican churches, the term applies to a bishop, assigned responsibilities to support a diocesan bishop. For example, the Bishop of Jarrow is a suffragan to the diocesan Bishop of Durham. Suffragan bishops in the Anglican Communion are nearly identical in their role to auxiliary bishops in the Roman Catholic Church. English diocesan bishops were assisted by bishops, consecrated to sees which were in partibus infidelium before the English Reformation; the separation of the English Church from Rome meant. The Suffragan Bishops Act 1534 allowed for the creation of new sees to allow these assistant bishops, who were named as suffragan. Before the term suffragan referred to diocesan bishops in relation to their metropolitan; the concept of a suffragan bishop in the Church of England was legalised by the Suffragan Bishops Act 1534.

The first bishops consecrated under that Act were Thomas Manning, Bishop of Ipswich and John Salisbury, Bishop of Thetford on 19 March 1536. The last Tudor suffragan bishop in post was John Sterne, Bishop of Colchester, who died in post in 1607/8. No more suffragans were appointed for more than 250 years, until the consecration of Henry Mackenzie as Bishop of Nottingham on 2 February 1870. At that point, the sees of suffragans were still limited to the 26 towns named in the 1534 Act; the appointment of bishops suffragan became much more common thereafter. Some Church of England and Anglican Church of Canada suffragan bishops are delegated responsibility by the diocesan bishop for a specific geographical area within the diocese. For example, the Bishop of Colchester is an area bishop in the Diocese of Chelmsford; such area schemes are presently found in the dioceses of: London: Two Cities, Kensington, Willesden. Chelmsford: Barking, Colchester. Oxford: Oxford, Dorchester, Reading. Southwark: Croydon, Woolwich.

Lichfield: Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton. Leeds: Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield. Toronto: York-Scarborough, York-Credit Valley, Trent-Durham, York-Simcoe. Area schemes have existed in Worcester diocese, Salisbury diocese, Lincoln diocese and Chichester diocese. Other suffragans have or have had informal responsibility for geographical areas, but these are not referred to as area bishops. Only the small Dioceses of Portsmouth and of Sodor and Man do not have a suffragan bishop; until 2016/2017, the Dioceses of Newcastle and of Leicester each had a stipendiary assistant bishop instead of suffragans, but these have since been replaced with suffragan bishops. Suffragan bishops in the Church of England who have oversight of parishes and clergy that reject the ministry of priests who are women across a whole province, are known as provincial episcopal visitors; this concession was made in 1992 following the General Synod's vote to ordain women to the priesthood. The first PEV was John Gaisford, Bishop of Beverley, consecrated on 7 March 1994.

An early example of a suffragan can be seen in Wales is Penrydd, established in 1537, when the Welsh dioceses were still within the Church of England. The Bishop of Swansea was a suffragan in the Diocese of St David's from 1890 till the erection of the diocese in 1923. Since disestablishment, Thomas Lloyd was suffragan Bishop of Maenan in the Diocese of St Asaph, when the bishop diocesan was Archbishop of Wales; the Church of Ireland has no suffragan bishops, not in the geographically large dioceses. Suffragan bishops are common in larger dioceses of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America, but have no responsibility for a specific geographical part of a diocese. ECUSA is not within the jurisdiction of the English law that requires diocesan and suffragan bishops to be appointed as bishop to a specific place, so suffragans are not given the title of any particular city within the diocese. For example, Bishop Barbara Harris was titled “Suffragan Bishop of Massachusetts”. Coadjutor and assistant bishops are different episcopal offices than suffragan.

A coadjutor is elected by a diocesan convention to become the diocesan bishop upon the ordinary’s retirement. A suffragan is elected by a convention, but does not automatically succeed the diocesan bishop; however a suffragan's office does continue to in the diocese until she chooses to retire. An assistant bishop is appointed by the diocesan bishop, his or her office ends when the ordinary who appointed her or him leaves office, it is common for Anglican suffragan or assistant bishops to act up during a vacancy in the diocesan See. In order to achieve this, the metropolitan bishop commissions a suffragan/assistant who becomes the episcopal

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is a turn-based action role-playing video game developed by Netherlands-based indie development studio Vlambeer and published by Devolver Digital. It was released for Microsoft Windows on 24 October 2011. After Serious Sam's protagonist, Sam "Serious" Stone was unsuccessful searching for antagonist Mental in the past, during the First Encounter, he decides to continue his search in the future. In order to find Mental, Stone teams up with mercenary allies, taking down hordes of enemies and solving puzzles. Having fought the minor enemies, players encounter ever-growing bosses leading up to the bosses reaching off-screen. Serious Sam: The Random Encounter plays a mixture of an action role-playing game and a Japanese role-playing game. During the open world sequences, the player may roam around but can hit on a randomized mob wave of enemies; these mob waves consist of ridiculously high numbers of enemies of all kinds, where the player is given the task to gun these down.

The gun combat is the game's JRPG part, where the player may switch weapons and shoot the weapon selected, choosing a direction, radius, or position to shoot at, as well as using one of the gathered items. During gameplay, the team grows from one to three persons, all of them having a turn each, giving the player more ability to take down incoming enemies. Additionally, the action RPG element adds to the combat's turns, while enemies are coming nearer, the player may move their characters, as a group, up and down in order to reach out of the aiming boundaries set in the turn's preparation. Serious Sam: The Random Encounter was developed from an early sketch Vlambeer made for a game, set to become a "JRPG-alike" title, it was made as part of the Serious Sam indie series to build up anticipation to Serious Sam 3: BFE. However, Vlambeer lacked the time to develop the game before the release of Serious Sam 3: BFE, which led to them working on the game in their hotel room, the plane back to the Netherlands, at home with, as Rami Ismail stated, "a lot of jetlag".

After a longer, silent development phase, the game was released on 24 October 2011 for Microsoft Windows. Serious Sam: The Random Encounter received mixed to positive reviews from critics, where the review aggregator Metacritic gave the game an above-average score of 64/100, based on 11 critic reviews, GameRankings a similar score of 64.43%, based on 14 critic reviews. Negative critiques arrived early, as Ryan Hodge from GamesRadar criticized that the game "banks so much on collective nostalgia for Serious Sam that it forgets to be a good game." On the opposite hand, Christian Donlan from Eurogamer stated that "if's not enough to get excited, fans of Croteam's magnificently straightforward blaster should note that Vlambeer has crafted the purest game yet when it comes to the pleasures of running backwards and shooting things." Additionally, Eric Neigher from IGN praised the game's surprising quality, by saying "as what's a marketing device, TRE could've ended up in the less-than-glorious ranks of games released to promo fast-food chains, but instead ended up being a innovative take on an FPS conversion."
