neisan2112: Friend was just in Cali, wanting to get back home cus its somehow cooler here in Texas.
BrukadaAbido: Its been high 80's here in minnesota, and my AC doesn't work. Think I've been having some minor heat exhaustion all week.
Mcgwee: yeah I don't have ac either
Juliamon: high 80s is perfect
MAPBoardgames: I ran Root at a con this past weekend. No one overthrew the Eyrie's government so it was a runaway bird victory.

micalovits: I think the music is from the PC version of root, it is very nice background music
Dog_of_Myth: Poor crows

PMAvers: And the best part of the Rats being around is that no one has to play Vagabond anymore.

CururuGuasu: He is the King of Suede
KeytarCat: That's a good Carlin line
BloodnBullets: the mole parliment does not care about the surface dwellers war
saucemaster5000: That mole is in formole attire
Drasvin: Most of mole society doesn't care about the surface. So you have to show them the resources and benefits of controlling the surface
JadedCynic: Mole leader:"We need to drive off the invading animals occupying the clearing above us!" Rest of Moles: ".....why?"
BloodnBullets: warriors are not tokens
micalovits: Warriors are not tokens
Drasvin: Tokens are the round cardboard
BloodnBullets: green is for the hirelings
Drasvin: Oh. The rats plunder the ruins? That's rude.
Fanklok: "Burn shit, kill people, fuck school" the rat king probably
BloodnBullets: @Drasvin yeah they are another faction that really cares about items which is neat
TheMerricat: Beej truely is "Lord of the Hundreds"
BloodnBullets: the hirelings favour the factions that are behind a bit to help with comming back
saucemaster5000: vagabond in murder mode
jibkat: TheMerricat alissa3Wave
TheMerricat: PrideWave @jibkat :D
JadedCynic: "Someone has to be the martyr" - the cult

Spades_Slicc: "There's a Mob in my fox" What's he doing there?
micalovits: Doesn't he have to rule it aswell? So he must have atleast 1 warrior
Alex_Frostfire: Do cards discarded from the decree go to lost souls?
kalira77: i've never actually played, but Eyrie always seemed like hard mode
Spades_Slicc: The Eyrie sounds complicated
BloodnBullets: @micalovits no, just have a piece.
BloodnBullets: @Alex_Frostfire yup, any time they are discard
airylan: Eyrie can be pretty ridiculous.
micalovits: Fair enough, must have remembered wrong
Mr_Bitterness: If the Eyrie doesn't fall, they can get a lot of points
saucemaster5000: honestly as someone who plays the eyrie a bunch, having your government fall early is not always a bad thing
kusinohki: yeah, eyrie are tricky, but if you can keep the cards in play they ramp up very quickly.
Drasvin: The Eyrie are the former rulers of the forest, so it's easy for them to reestablish legitimacy
BloodnBullets: if eyrie can build a decree they can get very powerful with a hugh number of actions. and that passive point gain is strong
airylan: I've seen several strategies that aim to fall in the first handful of turns
BloodnBullets: turmoil is basically guaranteed at least once.
Dergib: fall to get rid of "bad" cards is a common strat
kusinohki: <- not an expert, barely knows the rules
saucemaster5000: In games where Eyrie don't fall it's an insane landslide win
Mr_Bitterness: I can easily see falling early in response to the other player's actions; like if Beej hadn't attacked north
BloodnBullets: beej could have been ruthless and spread his mob to cams other roost since he knew he would turmoil and be unable to fight it, but that might have been a bit cruel.
Dergib: if the Eyrie don't fall at least once they other players did something wrong. lol
Drasvin: The Eyrie forces other players to deal with them or they accelerate
DarkMorford: But how well does Root go Back In The Box? Kappa
BloodnBullets: @DarkMorford in my experience: depends on the expansion.
Dergib: Eyrie can quickly turn into an archenemy game
saucemaster5000: well I think Beej might be wondering why there's suddenly huge red circle on their back
Dergib: rats do seem op. i'm more worried about these moles
micalovits: Rats are a bit of a ball of death rolling around and ruining things
Riiiiiiis: roll me
BloodnBullets: notably conspiracies can only be performed in the outcast suit
airylan: lizard suits
shurtal: Lizard Doctrine has some good points
Drasvin: Moles are strong but they don't have a lot of ways to get VP
duckace11: have you heard the good news of our leader King Gizzard and his sidekick the wizzard lizzard
BloodnBullets: only defending warriors become accolytes

BloodnBullets: gardens are how ben scores points
Mr_Bitterness: It's how Ben scores points; he has to take an action and gain points based on gardens
saucemaster5000: this game got violent so quickly!
BloodnBullets: from what ive seen the strategy for lizards is to focus two suits and try to score every turn.
BloodnBullets: @saucemaster5000 rats will do that. They dont call him the warlord for nothing
Yoda3455: @BloodnBullets I just pulled out my copy of the expansion. Beej does need to rule clearings for them to be scored by Oppress. So a clearing with just a mob does not count to scoring as it is not ruled, as tokens don't contribute to rule
micalovits: Do you think the rat would be nicer if we called him peacelord insteaad of warlord?
BloodnBullets: @Yoda3455 Ah! Your right it does say rule, and yes tokens don't count to rule.
Twilight_Spark: Seems good.
saucemaster5000: "lugubrious"
Dergib: holy crap. rats build up fast
Twilight_Spark: stripRat
saucemaster5000: Ben is playing millenials

saucemaster5000: Lizards keep making a big deal about turning their back to the rats

micalovits: You just risk more getting blown up at once if you stack them - could be an angry mob of rats coming for them...
airylan: yeah but then you get acolytes
BloodnBullets: yeah they become a more juicy target, but it makes them easier to defend too.

Drasvin: The moles have few ways to get VP, representing the denizens of the forests not caring that much about the moles.
DrBatman0: Been watching since season 4. Glad to finally be able to sub!
airylan: @airylan good point. They'll get rolled over by the rat warrior ball, though.

Mr_Bitterness: "Oh god they live on the water too!"
Drasvin: No one other than the Otters know how to make boats
BloodnBullets: @PMAvers correct, your hirelings are not you.
BloodnBullets: for people curious of rules, the latest law of root is here:
Yoda3455: @Drasvin Not even the Otters know how to make boats, it's all just a trick where they have more otters underneath a totally-not-riverworthy raft to keep it afloat

Yoda3455: The expansion also comes with a heavily armoured Badger faction
Its_VeeBot: lrrAWESOME It's muffin time!
BloodnBullets: did beej remember to remove an influence from the hireling?
Drasvin: Mice are feeling oppressed after helping the moles to fight the rats
BloodnBullets: you can use the markers from the score track to remind you, they sit at the bottom of your action board when you control a hireling.
kalira77: do the lizards really want people to attack them to gain VP, or is ben just RPing?
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL The moles are starting to notice that the longer they spend on the surface, the more moles turn into lizards
LoadingReadyRun: @kalira77 The lizards don't get VP, but they get resources
Drasvin: @kalira77 Lizards want their warriors to die when defending in order to get acolytes for their more powerful actions
Spades_Slicc: The plural of Mouse is actually Meeced
kalira77: ahhhh, sacrifice the peons to gain power, check
adept_nekomancer: Making people not fight you isn't how you die, though...
BloodnBullets: the lizards can play very passively and just turtle and score, but if they want to get agressive they need acolytes
Spades_Slicc: What's the victory number?
micalovits: 30 points to win
Spades_Slicc: jeebus
micalovits: It usually speeds up the further in you get
kalira77: yeah they said a few minutes ago that this game is moving slowly.
Drasvin: At 30 VP, the denizens of the forest recognize your claim to rulership
BloodnBullets: this has been a slow game with a busy board, but scoring will ramp up over time.
TheMerricat: TBF chat, we have new players at the table AND new factions being played.
BloodnBullets: cant move, doesnt rule one end
Haroldholmes25: So you're saying they don't recognize your claim if a watery tart just throws a sword at you?
BloodnBullets: Ian cant make those moves as he doesnt rule one end, gardens make ben rule the clearing
DrBatman0: Make up your mind, Ben. Do you want to be murdered in the face or not?
Drasvin: Ah. Ben is using the buns to protect the gardens
margieargie: Like the Mexican flag! ... wait no that's not right
Spades_Slicc: Both Ben and Cam's factions can infect you with Salmonella
adept_nekomancer: "We can't stop here, this is lizard country!"
BloodnBullets: surely ian can sway something?
DarkMorford: Maybe he can sway dem hips? Kappa
BloodnBullets: ah, seems he didnt know he doesnt need to rule, just have presence
micalovits: So many rats
Drasvin: !card relentless rats
LRRbot: Relentless Rats [1BB] | Creature — Rat [2/2] | Relentless Rats gets +1/+1 for each other creature on the battlefield named Relentless Rats. / A deck can have any number of cards named Relentless Rats.

Stammer6: Oh dang. I just saw my friends playing the video game version of this game!
saucemaster5000: flower power is a lot scarier than I thought
mitomanox: the variety of voices Ben can do gives me goosebumps <3
BloodnBullets: has beej done the flotilla?
TheMerricat: @BloodnBullets Yes, he did that at the start of his moe.
TheMerricat: move
KeytarCat: Moe moe Beej-chan
TheMerricat: @KeytarCat Gap Moe Beej....
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
couchboyj: lrrJUDGECALL
adept_nekomancer: For someone who wants to die, you're doing a lot of not dying
kalira77: beej no
micalovits: Only one battle
micalovits: You can move up to 3, and then battle once(and one extra from relentless)
ChargingFurret: not move+battle up to 3 times
BloodnBullets: flotilla changes hands
BloodnBullets: beej chooses, then they roll for influence
Tz_BG: Is it first to reach 8 VP that gets to choose a hireling?
ChargingFurret: 4 then 8 then 12 i believe
KeytarCat: @Tz_BG 4, 8, 12
Tz_BG: @KeytarCat Sure. I see those having markers on the score track. But is it first to reach the milestone or everyone who crosses it?
KeytarCat: First to reach
Tz_BG: @KeytarCat Thanks.
KeytarCat: brain mush!
saucemaster5000: "that bird just killed steve!" collective chorus - "YAAAY!"
BloodnBullets: it does say to do the hireling actions at "start of birdsong" so I believe you are supposed to do them first

Yoda3455: @micalovits "Advance the Warlord. You may take this action a number of times up to your Prowess. You may move the warlord with any Hundreds warriors, and then you may battle in the warlord's clearing." To me, that reads as each Advance is your choice of move OR battle OR move and battle.
BloodnBullets: I love this game and dont get to play it nearly as much as I want to.
Yoda3455: Likewise
Drasvin: So many ambushes
Spades_Slicc: @Drasvin Who would've thought a forest has so many amBushes
Chesul: Yoda3455 yeah, that's definitely what that reads as.
Drasvin: The warlord is dead!
BloodnBullets: reminder that only defending warriors become acolytes
fjordsword: what's the music?
ChargingFurret: from the online version of this game I believe
BloodnBullets: @fjordsword I believe its the soundtrack from the digital version
fjordsword: I always play with the sound off cuz I'm listening to other thing
LoadingReadyRun: This is the music from the digital version, yes
adept_nekomancer: Ah yes, birds. The lizards of the sky.
ChargingFurret: is cameron in turmoil now?
ChargingFurret: *at the start of his turn
SoldieroFortune: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:06:54.
Spades_Slicc: Show this fox what?
DrBatman0: sounds to me like you are Fighting Dreamers
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL The music is only a 10 minute loop, but it actually works surprisingly well
Strebenherz: I wouldn't have thought it's only 10 minutes.
jessicaengle: sergeChair
micalovits: @micalovits This sure is confusing, the way it is written on the board males it sound like it is a number of moves equal to prowesss(and why my group has played it like that). But the book 100% agrees with the way you read i
LordZarano: That sounds like the *pling* at the start of Roundabout by Yes
DaFhaye: Howdy everyone
Aceofkings72: omg ben scared the poo outta me the window was hidden lols
BloodnBullets: he can make new holes!
Kramburger: They're in a bind because they're way behind, but are they willing to make a deal?
Spades_Slicc: heh, doodoo
BloodnBullets: theres also a mouse clearing full of loot
BloodnBullets: that one
Raincoast_Bear: Suede MInster?
BloodnBullets: ian only has presence in one rabbit clearing
couchboyj: careful by the river, if that suede minister gets wet you'll ruin it
KeytarCat: Ben Like: "no, no, he's got a point"
Drasvin: Citadels are in the wrong clearing to build a bake sale

Spades_Slicc: Reading the card etc etc
Drasvin: Every player is playing a different minigame
LordZarano: Reading the faction explains the faction
saucemaster5000: SUSD did a very good video calling out Root for this problem -- to have a really good game of root, you can't teach one faction, you need to teach all of them or eventually someone will feel screwed and not know why.
adept_nekomancer: "The surface is full of violence and river otters with naval cannons. Why did we come up here?"
BloodnBullets: @saucemaster5000 yeah, you kinda need to have a casual game where you just accept those bad beats.
Strebenherz: I'm reminded of Civ by those comments. You can skim the surface and be fine, but there's a lot of in depth you can go into
Drasvin: Birds kicking over the rats things
couchboyj: ca caw!
BloodnBullets: did cam remove an influence on the flotilla?
fjordsword: wait they haven't been picking up the scoring track moves because they haven't been using it
ga1axyzr: friday nights when?
BloodnBullets: lords breaks ties, this is not about ties, pilgrims win
fjordsword: FAVOR OF THE FOXES!!!!
BloodnBullets: is it fox outcast?
Spades_Slicc: @ga1axyzr When people stop asking
fjordsword: oof
Juliamon: !fn question
BloodnBullets: favours are vicious.
mitomanox: @BloodnBullets road to ruin
DrBatman0: Beej the scientist: "I wonder if it will do that again"
laundreydhull: do it! roll for r e v e n g e. . . ! !
djalternative: favors are viscious
StageMgrRob: Ben Hirelings?
djalternative: viscous
mitomanox: bootilicious
saucemaster5000: One mole keeps desperately trying to clean the viewing screen of the surface and dying, so they send out another one
StageMgrRob: Ben you also get the last hireling as well, right?
djalternative: okay. viscous is correct. I feel like I've only ever spoken that word
NamesAreSilly: @djalternative vicious and viscous are two very different things
BloodnBullets: Ben read the medics carefully. I think you still get the acolytes first as medics only apply when they go to your supply
djalternative: @djalternative I know. it's why I like slipping the latter in where the former should be
NamesAreSilly: @djalternative Well OK, then - feel free to ignore me :p
PMAvers: Fight For-Ev-Er!
djalternative: very viscous favors
PMAvers: *clap clap clapclapclap*
DarkMorford: @djalternative If it's too viscous it won't be slipping in anywhere, though.
djalternative: you heard PMAvers, 8 hour game of Root it is
NamesAreSilly: @djalternative it *might* - it'll just take a minute
duckace11: Root for hope when?
BloodnBullets: Im not sure, as Im working from memory
DarkMorford: @PMAvers Do you happen to know if the moonbase has a copy of Poetry For Neanderthals?
mitomanox: poor boyz, locked inside the moonbase, adrift in time, playing until the game goddess decides it's time for them to go home... or play until the last drop of life <3 - directed by david cronenberg
BloodnBullets: Oh! sorry I think I got confused with another similar interaction with coffin makers.
djalternative: @djalternative viscosity does not necessarily correlate to a friction coefficient. see glass which is technically a very viscous liquid while still able to slip and slide many places should you so choose
PMAvers: @DarkMorford Not that I know of?
adept_nekomancer: Maybe they've just got really bad allergies.
heartofgoldfish: unfortunately the gardens are also places of worship for a minority group
Drasvin: Oh, removing stuff from the hoard gets rid of it permanently. I get the feeling that playing vagabond in the same game as the Hundreds would suck.
duckace11: I don't know why but for the lord of hundreds I'm picturing the flanders family runion from the simpsons
Drasvin: Ben is charging his lazor
airylan: !card aetherflux reservoir

BloodnBullets: Ben going to be doing some "wololo"
Strebenherz: Lock the doors and close the blinds, we're goin for a ride.
DeM0nFiRe: We are ALL lizards on this blessed day
duckace11: it should have been the crab people to get this ablity
BloodnBullets: its important to try to control the outcast if you can.
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL I think there are the more warriors on the board in this game then I have ever seen before
saucemaster5000: Definitely
BloodnBullets: did Ben claim a point for sanctifying the stronghold?
insanecat6mtg: @LoadingReadyRun Part of that might be because no one is playing the vagabond this time.
BloodnBullets: Ian only loses one,
saucemaster5000: part of that seems to be the rats forcing everyone to be militaristic instead of defensive, frankly
Dog_of_Myth: Warriors definitely came out to play tonight.
BloodnBullets: oh ian why?
BloodnBullets: oh thats why
saucemaster5000: holy shit the combo
PMAvers: Get. OUT.
micalovits: I uhhh, think Ian could steal this
Twilight_Spark: Instead, he's playing FOR KEEPS
Drasvin: Dominance is really strong for moles
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
GhostValv: :O
LoadingReadyRun: Mob: "Kill the Rabbit, Kill the Rabbit!"
Drasvin: There's nothing in the top right clearing? Why is that empty?
adept_nekomancer: There was a fight there and everyone died.
micalovits: Ian blew it up
BloodnBullets: he does not, rule is tied, the tunnel does not count
Drasvin: So Ian doesn't currently have dominance
TheMerricat: just got back from dinner Chat are we still in game one?
psykerturtle: Legend of Keepers Steam: Lq2039-0KFqYC-DXHFq4 Remove the 3 lowercase 'q's
saucemaster5000: @TheMerricat merricat, it's been a bloodbath
Drasvin: lrrSACK
MTGRanger: lrrSACK
BloodnBullets: you should still roll both dice for the flotilla, its like rolling with advantage
adept_nekomancer: In the forest, nobody knows who is secretly a lizard. It's safest to assume everyone is.
Drasvin: I suspect there's something about that garden.
LoadingReadyRun: @BloodnBullets good point
adept_nekomancer: Wait... a garden full of lizards. Does that make it... a Jurassic park?
saucemaster5000: Good pitch recruiter
BusTed: Indistinguishable.
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL "Don't build a garden right beside an angry mob" seems like good advice
kalira77: !goodadvice
LRRbot: At this time of year?
TheMerricat: how does Ian win again chat?
airylan: !badadvice
LRRbot: You look so cool when you throw rupees into the pool.
Fanklok: What is they're an angry mob because they want more gardens?
saucemaster5000: what if the mob was led by Poison ivy? Checkmate.
micalovits: Its almost like people don't want to punch the lizards
Drasvin: @TheMerricat Ian wins if he rules three or more mouse clearings at the beginning of his turn.
Strebenherz: !badadvice
LRRbot: Stream VR with Heather as your copilot.
Drasvin: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: the office sweatband
PMAvers: nice.
saucemaster5000: @TheMerricat It's a card called "dominance" which completely changes Ian's win condition, it's very weird.
Drasvin: The field medics don't care if they die in battle. Just if they're removed from the board
PMAvers: Turns out the birds are just two lizards in a trenchcoat. One stays with the birds.
graal_smith: Ian doesn't seem to have any wings. Is that bad?
adept_nekomancer: He is playing using an alternate victory condition (wings are VP)
ChargingFurret: @graal_smith hes completely changed how he wins from VP to controlling 3 mouse clearings at the start of his turn
saucemaster5000: So, I'm both incredibly impressed by Cameron's ability to hold against turmoil and keeping in the game, and amazed at how much this set-up meant the eyrie keep getting so dunked on by everyone else
graal_smith: @graal_smith How many mouse clearings does he have right now?
ChargingFurret: 3 i think
Drasvin: XD
PMAvers: "lol, " said the rabbits. "lmao."
micalovits: Who needs to ambush anyway
djalternative: okay. I think I've got to call it a night. Got to be up early tomorrow. enjoy folks
Tiber727: @saucemaster5000 I know I've played a game as Eyrie, never crashed and still lost handily because people kept making things for the wanderer and never kept them in check.
graal_smith: That's indecent Cameron
BusTed: *slide whistle*
adept_nekomancer: These birds are so migratory
Drasvin: And the decree gets dumped into the lost souls
Drasvin: Lizard cult rules the forest.
