SmithKurosaki: I love ticuus
Foxmar320: Graham when the strike is over let the time tick down
Luminaire_p: I've gotten a rock to the face outside of the tread room unarmeOkay
MTGRanger: Treads are safe adjacent. But guardians jump off cliffs for fun, so :p
Alahmnat: my favorite part of this elevator is all the dead cabal bouncing at the top
Ace__of__Hearts: I mean yeah mostly
wedge_x: leeeet's get reeeady to ruuuuumble!
SmithKurosaki: and now, for METAL
Foxmar320: This room looks great
MTGRanger: That’s an eloquent way off saying we will kill anything the vanguard says to
DiscordianTokkan: Let's get ready for FIRE ORBS
ashteranic: hahaaaa so many painful memories of the GM in this room
Ace__of__Hearts: okay now you just have to kill the man
nightraven949: Ah yes Opulence
jedi_master_zll: For being her "champion" he was kind of disappointingly easy the first time.
MTGRanger: YOU CAN SHOOT THE METEORS!!??
jedi_master_zll: The nightfall felt better.
Noodles_15: Fireballs!
keyforgealchemist: this dude looks Warhammer 40k
frozenphoenix7: Against the reigning, defending, undisputed, Heavyweight Champion of Caiatl?
Alahmnat: like specifically the bow, I got the meteor bit
Foxmar320: MTGRanger oh yeah in the GM those kill you in 1 hit you have to shoot them down
ritchards: how meaty are they?
MTGRanger: Lol wow
Alahmnat: guy has one trick and it's Cast Meteor
SmithKurosaki: sadly bow us not great for GMs atm
Foxmar320: Nice Ian
Luminaire_p: Bow isn't great for GMs that don't have overload, yeah
wedge_x: (please oh please get the good dialog)
MTGRanger: I still need more power levels before o can GM. but level 2 nightfalls have been fun
DeM0nFiRe: And then the person bringing you your food saw you just stand up and immediately sit back down
Foxmar320: He really likes Cam
Alahmnat: hope you like Stomp
SmithKurosaki: cam is the one high enough for GMs
ContingentCat: yay this is still going
Foxmar320: Stomp attacks?! How dare!
LarkSachrosis: As is tradition
MTGRanger: This poor cabal guy shows up like “YES TODAY I WILL ANNIHILATE ENEMIES FOR OUR EMPRESS’ GLORY” and then get annihilated by three randoms with fancy guns
DiscordianTokkan: There's a finisher that's you doing your OWN stomp attack, and it's great

Foxmar320: I found it good in PVP actually
Arclight_Dynamo: It ticjed.
Arclight_Dynamo: *ticked
Foxmar320: loading...
djalternative: Guardianing with Greg would be a great crapshot
Arclight_Dynamo: Uh... game?
Foxmar320: Graham I was making that joke how dare
Luminaire_p: This is an excellent cutscene
DefiantMars: Cutscene time
e_bloc: loading. . . ready. . . run cut scene?
LarkSachrosis: I hope next season is just as generous, I'm still waiting for my Graviton Lance catalyst.
MTGRanger: Yeah guardians with Greg would be fun

SCHLORMPH: suddenly a new episode of unskippable happens.
Foxmar320: Ghost no!
RandomTrivia: Oh hi Zavala
RomanianMyEscutcheon: BY GOD, SHE HAS BROKEN THAT MAN IN HALF
Foxmar320: Broken
jedi_master_zll: I wanted her to rip that scion in half there.
e_bloc: who shoots a ghost
RvLeshrac: RIP my sniper rifle.
DefiantMars: Targe is fine
AdamYMHMI: The little guy up there, "Oh, crap... oooooooh crap"
SidewinderSky: Love that Crow's first instinct was to, judging by the fact that his mask got broke, block that machete with his FACE
SmithKurosaki: shut down ghost, no res
Luminaire_p: This scene
Foxmar320: oh no the mask!
tenthtechpriest: she needs the psion alive. for questioning and/or torture
RomanianMyEscutcheon: Zavala is The Real One.
Luminaire_p: the parallels with Cayde's death
DiscordianTokkan: Zavala is the best
SmithKurosaki: yup
LarkSachrosis: Yes!
MTGRanger: This scene is so good
Foxmar320: Yep it parallels Cayde's death
HundreydAundre: Enemies working together!!!
KeytarCat: Crow isn't the other guy!
Foxmar320: Check out that image
nightraven949: Many people have very strong opinions about this cutscene
MTGRanger: Ok chat. Opinions on Crow as hunter vanguard?
Alahmnat: oh heck, lumi
ContingentCat: Shake him like a poloriod picture
ashteranic: there was a lore snippet of people reporting that they'd seen psions sneaking into the city to steal remains of ghaul's old snare for the traveller
e_bloc: the Shaggy Defense they say
Ace__of__Hearts: now you need to talk to Zavala in the tower I think
SmithKurosaki: I'm okay with Crow hunter, but I miss cayde
Foxmar320: You did the thing!
RomanianMyEscutcheon: If you want, there's a quick bit of follow up in the Tower.
Ubiki: Zavala is one of the strongest proponents of leaving gaurdians past lives behind isn’t he?
SmithKurosaki: yyp
LarkSachrosis: Yeah, the psions have more loyalty to other psions in other factions than they do to whatever faction they've found themselves in.
RomanianMyEscutcheon: It's like, a conversation with Crow, and a conversation with Zavala, and then you're done.
DefiantMars: Gotta love the symmetry
nightraven949: @MTGRanger I'm kinda 50/50 on it it would fit the Vanguard dare that all hunter vanguard follow but also Crow is a VERY young guardian so kinda also naw like hunters need an established hunter as a vanguard rep
ContingentCat: Oooo
Foxmar320: Its really well done
RandomTrivia: Ooooooh
DandyGeek: yeah, very nicely handled

KakuEpsilon: I do find myself worried about Beej being awake most often so late at night
wildpeaks: to think, last night I said "today Im going to sleep early".. Hello 5AM, we meet again
KeytarCat: @e_bloc I was probably playing shovelware at the time because I was a dumb kid

KeytarCat: @ShadyLantern fascinating old school rpg on older hardware than you'd expect
RvLeshrac: I just hope Beej can get it updated for both digital audio and MIDI music.
RvLeshrac: Because the few voices there are are absolutely hilarious.
KakuEpsilon: Beej is as passionate about this game as North 100 lads are about Canadian Highlander

e_bloc: Corgo500 and we all knew the real Betrayal at Krondor was the friends and coworkers we made all along :p
RvLeshrac: I *believe* the digital audio+MIDI patch also allows the CD audio and SFX to play at the same time.
RvLeshrac: Dynamix sound was so weird.
lirazel64: I am so looking forward to this.
kefnettheuseless: Can’t wait
Arclight_Dynamo: The early 90s were a wild time for PC hardware, when things hadn't settled down into single or intercompatible standards, yet.
Electrodyne: Yeah I wonder how many he'll eat.
lirazel64: Beej's playthrough of Shadowrun: Hong Kong was great.
Electrodyne: "Beej trial of Cronuts" is a great segment idea
sithenin: !updog

Tajessa: the Play i
KeytarCat: @Arclight_Dynamo Glad we outgrew that! Now, which password did I use with Disney+...?
ContingentCat: Hi Beej
RvLeshrac: @Arclight_Dynamo The weird thing is that the *adlib* couldn't do both simultaneously, but the game has *soundblaster* support, and it could.
Arclight_Dynamo: @KeytarCat Ha!
Tajessa: the Play It Forward theme music could not be any more appropriate for this stream
Arclight_Dynamo: @RvLeshrac Yup, exactly.
wildpeaks: an expectation
DefiantMars: The powers of multiple displays
ContingentCat: cool so it looks like you're looking at the chat on our end too

Arclight_Dynamo: I wonder which game was the first to have integrated quest tracking?
MTGRanger: Conclusion: take notes
CaptainSpam: lrrGOAT
dangerous_safety: the adultry questline is my favorite Kappa
RvLeshrac: The CD audio version of the barding is so much worse.
RvLeshrac: Because it doesn't build as well.
PBlackcoat: i haven't played this game since Jr High
thraximore: The age-old practice of paying someone to make them stop making noise
LightingExpert13: hooray I made it in time
thraximore: no infinite money
DeM0nFiRe: Heh that is interesting, it's almost like another form of lockpicking. You can only unlock the container and loot it oncec
MTGRanger: This game has beaten Skyrim
RvLeshrac: Some day MUNT will get MT-32 emulation working without a ROM and I'll be able to get more people to use the MT-32 audio in old games.
ArcOfTheConclave: the Baby bard's first gig music was choice.
RvLeshrac: And maybe the DOSBox team will do an official mainline update before 2080.

LightingExpert13: I personally really enjoy watching these considering I was never able to play these.
djalternative: though, I may be podcasting this at the moment
Arclight_Dynamo: This content is profoundly my shit.
BlueBuddhaX: This is great, its a game I wanted to play in the day but never did.
saucemaster5000: Hey this is a super cool throwback for some of us older folks
LightingExpert13: @Arclight_Dynamo rock on man
ContingentCat: The timing of this stream is perfect, right when I get home from work
MidnighterKnight: this is like revisiting early teens. add some sierra adventure games for a perfect childhood!
thraximore: alas
PBlackcoat: when was the last time you played this, Beej? you seem to know it well
FlyboyZeb: love the later time slot since this is when I usually get home from work
ghyllnox: TLG was fun, but I'd been watching it largely because it was before this. This is my appointment television today, been looking forward to it since last time.
wildpeaks: one of the GOG people also streams a lot of such older games (on an XP computer, not even an emulator, the madman) if you want more in between Beej streams
wildpeaks: the plot thickens
CoffeeWitchPhoebe: Heckin mind readers beating me at cards!
Arclight_Dynamo: I *cannot* get over Locklear's stache.
PBlackcoat: it's magnificent
thraximore: @PBlackcoat 'tis
raze667: Oh SHIT! Betrayl at Krondor1
raze667: I love these books :)
Arclight_Dynamo: We need to find a store we can sell our crap to.
wildpeaks: PraiseIt
MaelstronSolenor: is the 23% armor worth keeping?
DeM0nFiRe: Heh TIL there is a praise helix emote
wildpeaks: :)
PBlackcoat: is he playing with a walkthrough?
CoffeeWitchPhoebe: it lives in this hole now
Arclight_Dynamo: Yes. He's also cheating.
Arclight_Dynamo: He's duping stuff.
saucemaster5000: used journals always go for so much at pawn shops
wildpeaks: back in the day, you often had to have the gaming guide
wildpeaks: physical DLC :D
Arclight_Dynamo: I have NO shame about using walkthroughs for old PC games. They were BRUTAL.
Arclight_Dynamo: Especially Sierra.
PBlackcoat: oh, Bradley games got a *lot* of my money in the 90s
Arclight_Dynamo: I think it was there, yes.
PBlackcoat: the animation is so smooth
Arclight_Dynamo: Well... oh! Right, it was the potion place we shifted stuff. Oops.
wildpeaks: nimlotBeelzebub
DeM0nFiRe: Heh
thraximore: How modern
Arclight_Dynamo: Bit of a letdown of an inn, frankly.

KeytarCat: Yabin Dabin Doo
amuseoffirebane: wait, this looks really really familiar..... chat is there like a witchy or wizards person in like a cobblestone room/dungeon somewhere?
Arclight_Dynamo: Okay, why are we only selling swords we have repaired?
CaptainKranok: They either accept or decline your offer, this is the Haggleian Dialectic.
PBlackcoat: you can only repair them once
chaostreader: @arclight_dynamo Because we will repair the repairable ones to up our repair skill
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah!
Arclight_Dynamo: I thought we could repair indefinitely if we had the item.
CoffeeWitchPhoebe: ah yes, annoying the shopkeeper until he caves just to be rid of you
thraximore: It's very considerate of the shopkeep to have amnesia
ContingentCat: he was watching closely to learn I guess
Arclight_Dynamo: Grinding haggle seems like a good idea, at least.
ritchards: can stats get to 100%? (or more?)
saucemaster5000: Can you imagine being the person someone decides to grind their haggle skill against? I've dealt with that customer, and they are not a happy sight
thraximore: How much can you use a hammer? indefinitely?
chaostreader: Because you can haggle and not buy would it be better to haggle in every item?
PBlackcoat: griiind that skill
saucemaster5000: zeno's paradox of skills
ContingentCat: yeah just ass armour seems like a odd choice to use
MaelstronSolenor: boy they super try to make you feel bad for haggling
thraximore: Haggling 'til the sun burns out
CaptainSpam: Stat grinding, 90's style!
Arclight_Dynamo: That
Arclight_Dynamo: That's who Gorath reminds me of! Canadian character actor Ron Pardo! https://i.imgur.com/Hqjjer2.jpg

thraximore: @saucemaster5000 haggle +
Spacepup: Beej what do you think of the Tsurani books? I like them more than the mainline books.
FPNY41: Whoa, I remember reading the books this was based pn

Arclight_Dynamo: Ooh, long one.
Arclight_Dynamo: Spider

SeiichiSin: Spooder.
thraximore: rhino
RustyPryde: A tiny Jean Paul Gauthier.
LightingExpert13: chat, what is the purpose of the shell again?
chaostreader: @lightingexpert13 To sell?
LightingExpert13: @chaostreader fair enough. This game style is totally new for me.
CaptainSpam: Turns out vendor trash existed back in the 90s, too! :D
LightingExpert13: how is chat otherwise
LightingExpert13: wonder if these fights were rotoscoped
Arclight_Dynamo: The best part about these animations is that they have no WALKING animations.
Arclight_Dynamo: They skate.
Greymarch2000: Is this the riddle chest game or the bead chest game?
Arclight_Dynamo: We just opened a wordlock chest. It's a riddle.
RustyPryde: The speed of this game is just staggering.
saucemaster5000: holy moly out of curiousity I looked it up and sure enough there are speedrun record for this -- top 2 h 51m
ContingentCat: lrrWOW
Greymarch2000: Man. I remember loving this game back in the day
thraximore: What's the downside of having skills on?
thraximore: Ah
LightingExpert13: @saucemaster5000 gosh that makes me think of speedruns for night trap.
RustyPryde: I remember playing this on a 386 way back when with a 640x480 11in. CRT monitor.
thraximore: Can you get ambushed while sleeping or does that never happen?
JosephDeath: I keep missing you being live on this, but I'm super excited for you to play through this game on stream
CaptainSpam: "Well, team, it's taken us several weeks to walk back to the castle, a trip that should've taken us like a couple days, tops. What happened?"
saucemaster5000: @LightingExpert13 HA!
tipulsar85: Wow, it's a Sierra game.
thraximore: focus the support!
LightingExpert13: @saucemaster5000 right.!
ContingentCat: @JosephDeath this is only the second stream so you're at 50% success
Greymarch2000: I remember being so annoyed they lost the Krondor license and had to make Betrayal at Antara for the "sequel"
CaptainSpam: The entire casting-from-health thing is an interesting concept from a strategy standpoint.
thraximore: almost exactly an hour
wildpeaks: it's been an hour already ? dang, time flies
PharaohBender27: katesLurk
wildpeaks: nimlotHunting
Arclight_Dynamo: @Greymarch2000 They didn't lose it, so much as they sold the rights back because this game didn't sell well. Then they released the CD version, it did gangbusters, and they were kicking themselves.

Arclight_Dynamo: @ShadyLantern Well, it's on GoG, so...
ShadyLantern: i enjoy the charm of games from my youth XD
thraximore: I'm just here for the vicarious nostalgia
ShadyLantern: rockin, thanks
thraximore: Now, if they played Dungeon Siege on stream...
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Dang, and here I was typing up a reply about how that might be easier said than done :p
LightingExpert13: fair enough. Grew up with no computer.
Greymarch2000: Quest For Glory 1-5 run! :p
Arclight_Dynamo: @PharaohBender27 Ha! No, Beej is playing the GoG version.
ShadyLantern: i figured it would be online somewhere
Arclight_Dynamo: The two sequels (official and spiritual) are also on GoG.
LightingExpert13: thought he said it was on steam too.
Arclight_Dynamo: In fact, you can *only* buy this game bundled with one of them.
ShadyLantern: it is on steam too, found it there as well
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, look at that, yeah, it's on Steam, too.
LightingExpert13: so options for all.
LightingExpert13: oh no he is back
thraximore: oh yes he's back
ritchards: Beejtrayal!
Rhuantavan: Oh look, Betrayal at Krondor, my fav game of all time. Niiice!
LightingExpert13: @ritchards nice
MaelstronSolenor: Antara is super dope
RvLeshrac: The GOG version of Antara is broken.
RvLeshrac: There's a crash later in the game. This is extremely unfortunate.
thraximore: bwuh?
Arclight_Dynamo: There's a fan reimplementation of the Krondor engine that runs natively on Linux. It's just the engine, and you need to load in the datafiles from CD or wherever. It's called xBaK. http://xbak.sourceforge.net/
thraximore: oh dear. being colorblind is pretty bad here
Rhuantavan: There’s Call of Saregnar, a spiritual sequel to BaK in the works. I’m working on it haha (shameless self promotion)
DoodlestheGreat: IT'S A TARP
wildpeaks: rekt
thraximore: hahahahaha
Bladinus: \o/
Xenguin47: Huh. Not used to seeing anybody on this late. Yay for Riftwar!
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: Ooh, late night Beej fight
Rhuantavan: Racial mods only affect about 3%
ContingentCat: the way back machine is a treasure
LightingExpert13: yes it is
Greymarch2000: How far along is it @Rhuantavan ?
LightingExpert13: @delta__vee thank you
Arclight_Dynamo: Okay, Googling about the racial mod suggests the penalty is minor. 5% less chance to hit, 5% less armour protection. The recommendation is to prefer more expensive gear and ignore the racial mod. But there's not much information I can find, so take it with a grain of salt.
Rhuantavan: @greymarch2000 Got a patreon demo released in August and working on a public expanded demo for this year’s end. Should be a couple of years more in the works.
Xenguin47: I'll be honest, "exploding chests" sounds like something I don't really wanna deal with. :P
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, got the riddle.
Electrodyne: is he a candle
Arclight_Dynamo: He is!
Electrodyne: nice
LightingExpert13: wow would have taken me so long to get that answer
PharaohBender27: @ContingentCat Tell me about it. I was uploading a bunch of threads from the Cracked.com forums (where I spent a lot of the early-mid 2010s) onto the Wayback Machine right before those forums were shut down.
delta__vee: you get in the habit of just putting 'web dot archive dot org slash web slash star slash' in front of things...
MaelstronSolenor: Hey Beej, do you (or anyone) have plans for Betrayal in Antara? seeing you play this made me want to see that game again.
RvLeshrac: If people have spare bandwidth, you can run an ArchiveTeam Warrior for archival projects.
Rhuantavan: Betrayal in Antara is... okay I guess, but BaK is superior in most ways.
RvLeshrac: MaelstronSolenor: GOG's Antara is broken.
MaelstronSolenor: @Rhuantavan you think so? what do you find better?
ritchards: I remember the bug in Arcanum that let you create money, just by putting nearly half in a chest... and you had to select the amount one click on the up arrow at a time...
Rhuantavan: @maelstronsolenor Writing, characters, worldbuilding, less aggravating enemies and combat, better quests, etc. Antara only improved on UI in certain places and not much else.
MaelstronSolenor: @RvLeshrac my original cd game was also broken, had a bug in one of the last chapters, after many years I learned about the issue and went to find how the game ends online.
Arclight_Dynamo: Technically, xBak runs on any X Window System, and you can install X Window System for DOS, so... Kappa
Ironfistofglee: so much nostalgia! man i loved this game as a kid
wiggins: mattlrBork mattlrBork mattlrBork
60 raiders from wiggins have joined!

ritchards: These days, these would be Kickstarter backers
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, raiders!
Rhuantavan: Too bad xBak is unfinished and only a tech demo.

eDRoaCH: mattlrHeart lrrHEART
p_johnston: hello.
HundreydAundre: XD
Arclight_Dynamo: Hi Chatthew! Did you get through the MGS4 feature-length film?
hexy_lexy: mattlrBork
wiggins: Good! how're you?
p_johnston: yes!
Izandai: We sure did.
Arclight_Dynamo: Ey, nice!
Ironfistofglee: the best part of this game: the puzzle chests.
wiggins: MGS4 is concluded, yeah
p_johnston: It was more cutscene then game at the end. and the beginning. Also the middle.
Paranundrox: whats next on the docket?
Izandai: Peace Walker
hexy_lexy: hi LRR friends! hope yall are doing well <3
LightingExpert13: more cute scenes than death stranding?
Nigouki: Arclight_Dynamo some people in chat barely survived
wiggins: Peacewalker > Mass Effect Trilogy > MGS5
HundreydAundre: My favorite mechanic in the game? The compass/view positioning.
wildpeaks: shopkeeper, give us your strongest shop
thraximore: Lute! umbraHype
p_johnston: @LightingExpert13 MGS4 is about 40% cutscene on a normal playthrough.
LightingExpert13: @p_johnston interesting. Will have to watch sometime soon.
ritchards: How much of MGS is Snake Ass?
Ironfistofglee: the lute is a good pickup , as you can earn money with it
LightingExpert13: man this shopkeep is firm
p_johnston: @ritchards Only about 5% but that is still higher then you really want.
thraximore: @LightingExpert13 very
thraximore: graverobbing, woo!
Arclight_Dynamo: Zomblebees?
LightingExpert13: you can't even be a shovel knight
diamondmx: Oh, you're just grinding haggle?
p_johnston: So the only use is to turn into a graverobber? That seems... evil?
RvLeshrac: Yeah do NOT dig up the wrong graves.
thraximore: @p_johnston They're dead, they're not using that loot anyway :)
LightingExpert13: @RvLeshrac oh man that would be so bad
p_johnston: @p_johnston Look the only moral way to loot dead people is if you kill them yourself.
thraximore: @p_johnston renewable resource, good thinking
Arclight_Dynamo: So what's the use of the lute if we can grind barding at inns?
p_johnston: So what does the shopkeeper think of theses three strange men who just repeatedly enter and leave his shop trying to haggle each time?
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah-ha. Gotcha.
p_johnston: entering*
Izandai: The shopkeep has face blindness. They think we're three different people each time.
thraximore: Gorath has a CLASSIC fake beard
p_johnston: "Hello and welcome to my shop! You would not believe the last three customers I had."
Ironfistofglee: so, time to go back to the graveyard with that shovel?
ShadyLantern: i'm glad barding is in here partially cuz i love playing bards
p_johnston: Hello good shopkeep I need a shovel for...reasons. Also unrelated how often do you guys check your graveyard?
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, yo, can we learn new songs if we find them in-game?
thraximore: That sound made me think you broke the lute somehow umbraHappy
LightingExpert13: what is the candy of tonight?
ContingentCat: what kind of candies?
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo "Bustin'" Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil :D
Ironfistofglee: played that lute till it disintergrated
p_johnston: That was a really crappy lute.
LightingExpert13: sounds delicious
TacitusVigil: Summer fruits? In Spring? How decadent!
thraximore: That Lute had a family
chaostreader: @arclight_dynamo I mean. Every string instrument has durability.
Arclight_Dynamo: They're listening and watching, so they learn? I guess?
TacitusVigil: I still like the idea that they're a band.
Arclight_Dynamo: Holy moly.
Izandai: O.O
thraximore: lockpick meta
LightingExpert13: money play
Arclight_Dynamo: New plan!
rabbitgta: is that for all 30 though?
HundreydAundre: All them sovereigns
Rhuantavan: Dat music
p_johnston: Why are odd bits of metal more expensive then literal healing potions?
LightingExpert13: oh. Thought that was for one lockpick
HundreydAundre: All yours!?
LightingExpert13: in the beej way
p_johnston: We are not on that world.
LightingExpert13: being frugal
djalternative: thicc feet
Arclight_Dynamo: THICC f-- dang it, got there before me. :D
LightingExpert13: poor girls.
thraximore: the whining LUL
ContingentCat: builds character
djalternative: @Arclight_Dynamo we can all say thicc feet. the more the merrier
Tiber727: Do you know how hard it is to find shoes for thick feet?
Izandai: PrideLaugh
LightingExpert13: adam and his thicc wallet
Arclight_Dynamo: God, those are fun streams.
p_johnston: I like to imagine that the haggling goes worse because he can see you have like 500 gold and are just being cheap.
thraximore: It feels very Gnomes 100 Dragons 0
Elevation_4000_FT: Do you think you'll finish Final Bug someday?
KeytarCat: 1 in 256 rule?
thraximore: Little did he know 0_0
thraximore: Beej was dead the WHOLE TIME
asthanius: I guess the question is: Do you WANT to finish The Final Bug
p_johnston: I need to reread the Raymond E Feist books. They were good.
Arclight_Dynamo: I think Fairy Mound has a better chance of getting finished, since it had the hard save point we got to.
Juliamon: I wonder if FInal Bug also NG+s you
hexy_lexy: @LoadingReadyRun i could 100% watch you, paul, and adam play more of those books
Tajessa: boy that book was a lot. hilarious, but... wow
LightingExpert13: @hexy_lexy there were more of them. They are on LoadingReadyLive
asthanius: wow, spoilers Kappa
p_johnston: I have re read from magician a few times but It was always before the series ended so I never finished it.
thraximore: this shovel WILL go down
hexy_lexy: @LightingExpert13 yeah, ive seen them all. theyre so damn funny
Arclight_Dynamo: Beej is RPing himself, basically. Haggling a shovel. Kappa
ContingentCat: the CYOA books work so good bridging the gaps between campaigns
p_johnston: Also to be fair one of the main characters is EXPLICITLY immortal and told he will not die until after everyone else.
Izandai: We don't wanna spend a whole 6 of our 562.7 gold on this shovel.
Juliamon: This shovel which we explicitly will be using to dig up graves.
p_johnston: So this is just like in morrowind where to train speechcraft you just cornered one poor soul and mashed Persuasion for 8 hours.
thraximore: @Juliamon The anticipation is the best part :)
LightingExpert13: @hexy_lexy yes they are. Love rewatching them and I do hope there will be more in the future
asthanius: Probably take about as much time to just dig with your hands at this point
Arclight_Dynamo: Never surrender!
Juliamon: You don't want to pay full price on a gravedigging shovel.
Rhuantavan: I’ve read all of Feist’s book because of this game. The story for this game though was written by Neal Hallford, not Feist.
thraximore: Never give up!
p_johnston: I mean... Eh. I don't mind the beej chat time.
asthanius: @Juliamon That's why I steal all my shovels from graves
thraximore: I want to watch this nonexistent merchant CRUMBLE
Tajessa: The Duality of Chat
djalternative: Can we have a poll on whether to keep with it or not?
eDRoaCH: a bunch of us are wiggins fans. we're used to self-imposed grinding
PBlackcoat: even if it's a royal, it's a MORAL victory
LightingExpert13: what would beej want to watch? People haggling or just buying outright?
ContingentCat: Stick with it as long as you want Beej
rabbitgta: eh grave robbin sounds like fun too
hexy_lexy: ah, the duality of chat :p
aClonedPickle: inside you are two wolves. they are both twitch chat. they do not agree
ShadyLantern: it's the principle of the matter
thraximore: we do have a break coming up in a couple minutes :P
Juliamon: I've been mentally writing an Onion article for this poor shopkeeper's absolutely terrible day
PBlackcoat: exactly, @shadylantern
Tajessa: @aclonedpickle exactly
LightingExpert13: @Juliamon I would read that knowing the context

Arclight_Dynamo: Got there!
eDRoaCH: imagine being this shop keeper. 'ugh, you again'
Izandai: GOT THERE
thraximore: huh, wonder if that's a coincidence umbraThink
PBlackcoat: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
asthanius: Thrift Achieved
ContingentCat: lrrGOAT lrrHORN
hexy_lexy: hey, 4 royals is 4 royals. we take that
p_johnston: It only took us 30 minutes to save those 4 royals!
asthanius: A royal saved is a royal earned
Arclight_Dynamo: Next step: Dupe picks?
KeytarCat: aqui?
thraximore: Curse?
p_johnston: Also wait yeah we can magically dupe items for infinite cash. Why do we even need haggling?
asthanius: Not digging up the baby sounds like a good idea
LightingExpert13: why shouldn't you grab certain graves up?
KeytarCat: don't F with the baby ghost
LightingExpert13: ah i see
asthanius: I could probably kick a baby ghost's ass
Arclight_Dynamo: Sounds like good XP. Kappa
p_johnston: So do our characters care enough to refill the graves after?
KeytarCat: Lost at sea was my read
DeM0nFiRe: Oh neat does the epitaph on the grave give a hint of what is inside?
asddsa28: i just got here are we grave robing
LightingExpert13: @p_johnston vram says yes
ghyllnox: So you've learned your lesson with baby graves before?
thraximore: @asddsa28 we were
djalternative: Baby Graves? Love that guy!
Arclight_Dynamo: So now we're doing wizardry to duplicate items in a *grave*? Yeah, we're necromancers.
thraximore: @LoadingReadyRun want to dupe while we're on break?
Mysticman89: math checks out
LightingExpert13: @Arclight_Dynamo yes beej is a necromancer
Arclight_Dynamo: Stream was delayed 15 mins, so break likely will too.
eDRoaCH: get rich then haggle for 3 hrs
p_johnston: So... Haggling is totally useless right?
Arclight_Dynamo: @Izandai A-yup.
Izandai: Huh.
asthanius: That's a pretty huge bug
thraximore: ayup
Izandai: The magical item-duplicating grave.
Arclight_Dynamo: This was *long* before games got patches.
Izandai: Wow.
AziraphalesShop subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 50 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, AziraphalesShop! (Today's storm count: 86)
p_johnston: The only saving grace of these kind of glitches was that though games didn't have patches they information didn't immediately spread to everyone either.
LightingExpert13: what is the conversion from gold to soverign to royal?
asthanius: gold = sovereign, silver = royal
LightingExpert13: rather is it 1 gold to 10 sovereign?
asthanius: I think it's literally the same thing, just with another name for some reason
asthanius: as far as i can tell
Arclight_Dynamo: If it was up for free, it's fair game to grab that version for free, IMO.
Arclight_Dynamo: Alternatively, it's for sale for seven bucks.
Juliamon: They are "gold sovereigns" and "silver royals"
Arclight_Dynamo: GoG was also fifty cents cheaper. :P
LightingExpert13: ah i see. Thank you for the clarification
chaostreader: And it is 10 silver royals to 1 gold sovereign, I believe.
thraximore: hence why we're here in the dead of night LUL
LightingExpert13: thank you
LurkerSpine: 40+ hours for main story according to how long to beat
AziraphalesShop: It'll be shorter than Persona 5.
LurkerSpine: but very small sample size
asthanius: That's if you skip all the Krondor S Links
p_johnston: So I know we can use the storeowner to train up our haggling but I think were missing opportunities to train other skills. Can we use him to train our weapon use for example? Then we could simply take what we need.
asthanius: that's a lot of tiny metal sticks
thraximore: LUL
Izandai: This is disgusting.
p_johnston: What does the Pawnshop need 200+ lockpicks for?
Mysticman89: I guess they didnt anticipate players needing platinum coins
LightingExpert13: and then this party gets robbed
SnackPak_: lrrGREED
asthanius: This dude has a lot of cash in reserve
thraximore: umbraHype umbraHype umbraHype
Juliamon: p_johnston to "obtain" more stuff
asddsa28: lrrJUDGE
Sappo569: surprised the developer didn't put in a very simple script to lower the sell price if you flood the market
CaptainSpam: @p_johnston To store the thousands and thousands of sovereigns they've got to buy them all, of course.
DoodlestheGreat: That's a lotta lockpicks...
thraximore: @asthanius he IS the stingiest shopkeep around
hexy_lexy: welp, time to destroy the whole economy :p
SnackPak_: time for shopping
worldlydave: this shopkeeper is LOADED!
asthanius: You can probably afford a full-price shovel at this point
p_johnston: And that is when the beej broke the game.
thraximore: @asthanius nah, gotta haggle
JuniorRoll: How much is a Gold? 1000 Sovereign?
Cephallope: Stonks!
ContingentCat: @worldlydave *Was loaded
asthanius: oh my god
Arclight_Dynamo: So does having the shoes and the ring in the general inventory count as wering them?
thraximore: haggle. one more time
thraximore: yessss
hexy_lexy: Y E S
mtvcdm: Evening
Izandai: WHY are you going to haggle over these things?
asthanius: Loot the lute
ContingentCat: @Izandai because he can
ShadyLantern: i respect the hustle
p_johnston: I'll give you 54 sovereigns. Says the man who just sold you 3500+ sovereigns worth of lockpicks.
ShatteredShamrock: oh woah, i have no idea what this is but i'm into it
mtvcdm: I don't know what I've stepped into but I see Beej is going full Royal Guarantee?

thraximore: How do you think we made this fortune, by paying full price? hell nah
chaostreader: This is Scrooge McDuck levels of money hoarding.
hexy_lexy: maximum haggle!!!
ghyllnox: Maybe he could shoe his daughters' thicc feet with lockpicks now :D
oyleslyck: oh wow, this game is a blast from my past
ContingentCat: @mtvcdm Beej is destroying the local economy with douped lock picks
Arclight_Dynamo: There is no ethical consumption under feudalism. Kappa
mtvcdm: !addquote (Beej) [now] I just sold these to you, but I wish to haggle about getting them back.
LRRbot: New quote #7599: "I just sold these to you, but I wish to haggle about getting them back." —Beej [2021-05-06]
p_johnston: You know the point in the elder scroll games where you stop picking up loot because you have more gold then you could ever use? I think that this might be that point.
CaptainSpam: Honestly, knowing about this bug would've probably helped me finish the game back in the day... :)
Arclight_Dynamo: And now we sit outside this poor guy's door and play terrible lute. :D
Mysticman89: futzing witht a practice lute is another of my scattered mamories of this game
thraximore: "Give us a discount or we'll play a lute outside your shop... poorly!"
asthanius: You tear out every page you read
DeM0nFiRe: Heh, Owyn is so bad at the lute he breaks it every time he uses it?
LightingExpert13: glad real lutes don't do that to this extreme
Cephallope: Late night lute practice. Our neighbours must love us.
Tajessa: wow, so that's what happened to my old books, they ran out of charges. And I re-charged them with sticky tape.
SnackPak_: ablative lutes
asthanius: Just playing the same riff from Enter Sandman over and over again
ContingentCat: yes "lost" or "dropped"
red_shoes_jeff: Do you quarrel, sir!?
thraximore: @asthanius when you reach 90% barding you can play the opening to Welcome Home by Coheed and Cambria
p_johnston: He's tired. Someone keeps digging up the graveyard and he has to figure out who.
eDRoaCH: i like how that 1 char so painfully wants a crossbow they carry a mold around
TacitusVigil: "Well, thanks for nothing" - Geoffrey, probably.
Arclight_Dynamo: Back to LaMut for crossbows?
mtvcdm: Okay, so since I'm just coming into the playthrough, someone want to give me a tl;dr?
ContingentCat: actually at some point during Desert Bus Krondor was mentioned and Beej was asked what that was about, here's him going on about it for 7 min https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wMNWQ0Ao5c
ContingentCat: *~8 min
Juliamon: So far mostly we've just item-duped, picked locks for an hour to level up lockpicking, barded until we stopped getting kicked out, and haggled until we got a shovel for 4 royals less.
mtvcdm: Is this session 1?
Juliamon: 2
mtvcdm: Ostensibly what is Beej's character supposed to be doing according to the story?
Juliamon: Going to Krondor I guess
Izandai: So we can get betrayed?
mtvcdm: What's at Krondor?
Juliamon: At some point we will end up with a different party makeup
ContingentCat: the be betrayed supposedly
Izandai: Betrayal, according to the name of the game.
thraximore: betrayal at the house on the krondor
ContingentCat: Krondor's the capitol of the area
Juliamon: also there are Scottish dwarves, because of course there are
TacitusVigil: The dwarves are never French
mtvcdm: So.... character not sure what going on yet?
Juliamon: The game started in media res
savorycookie: Realistic simulation of the D&D party haggling over a ladder for 2 hours
LightingExpert13: @Juliamon thinking a dwarf sound french is weird but I don't object to it
ContingentCat: iirc Owyn helped one of the other guys with an injury and they were like you're coming with us now for reasons?
RvLeshrac: Forum post at GOG has a link to the audio patch.
Arclight_Dynamo: @RvLeshrac Yes, Beej is aware of how to do it. He just hasn't had the time yet.
RvLeshrac: Ah
saucemaster5000: Wait I thought this game was just a haggling version of adventure capitalist -- there's a Plot??
Juliamon: There's a plot, but it's hidden under all these sidequests
Arclight_Dynamo: We don't suck anymore!
Ironfistofglee: the hilarious thing is, not only can you wander off and get side tracked with side quests, but you can just wander into the north, full of deadly assassins @LoadingReadyRun
Izandai: Not bad. Not great, but not bad.
hexy_lexy: @Juliamon said every JRPG ever :p
p_johnston: @Juliamon I mean that's just every RPG.
ContingentCat: How good does he have to be to get a real lute not just a practice one?
Juliamon: I would argue that the difference here is that it's not even trying to convince us the plot is more important. It's just like "nah you can go fuck off if you want, it's fine"
p_johnston: that just means its a well written RPG. Because at least they knew what was going to happen and just accepted it.
eDRoaCH: question, do you know if the Road Quest water bottles are coming back? Mine broke and im dying
LightingExpert13: Owyn is really good at one song
thraximore: put mine in
ContingentCat: but he's getting pretty good at it
mtvcdm: !store
LRRbot: LoadingReadyRun has a store! You can buy T-shirts, MTG playmats and sleeves, Qwerpline and Road Quest official merch, and much more! Check out https://store.loadingreadyrun.com/ for the full catalog. (Please be aware that Wyrmwood products purchased from THIS store do not benefit from the Wyrmwood shipping promo, but they are worth it!)
Tajessa: I love my road quest water bottle btw, thank you Beej
RvLeshrac: Beej is not, for instance, ordering more WiiPlay shirts.
eDRoaCH: ya i tried to find an alternate top and im unsure what will fait. the rubber seal around the spout disloged
Izandai: PrideLaugh
iris_of_ether: I wore my Gardening with Greg shirt today for my first day back at work after PTO. It was fitting. :P
Juliamon: oh man a multicolour RQ bottle
p_johnston: If you live in canada I hope you have american friends.
Izandai: I laugh because Beej's delivery was funny, not because international shipping being expensive as fuck is funny.
eDRoaCH: awesome thanks. ill still buy another official when you get them
ContingentCat: if the water bottles are like the contigo coffee things they have the tops on Amazon
Phailhammer: iris_of_ether Well, if it's fitting, it must be the right size. lrrBEEJ
TacitusVigil: Desert Bottle for Hope
eDRoaCH: my only criticisim is i have no need for the pocket. i do play with it a lot tho
RvLeshrac: Just a logo bottle that says "Beej really wanted more bottles"
ContingentCat: being a fidget is a use
Izandai: @p_johnston Or a Vancouver friend with a Point Roberts PO box.
hexy_lexy: @LoadingReadyRun you should totally make a "fat wallet" water bottle (sarcasm)
Izandai: *Victoria
Izandai: They should make a "fat wallet" wallet.
TacitusVigil: That's just a regular wallet
Raiger: I...don't think I ever looked at that second picture showing the pocket on the water bottle
Juliamon: I'd be down for a dark blue bottle with the lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW up/down it lengthwise
Raiger: I had no clue that was a THING
TacitusVigil: @Juliamon Same
hexy_lexy: @TacitusVigil jokes on you, im broke beyond compare :p
thraximore: @Juliamon sounds sick
Izandai: Shadow
Arclight_Dynamo: Shadow
ShatteredShamrock: Shadow
mtvcdm: Shadow
Ironfistofglee: these puzzle boxes are the best part of the game
hexy_lexy: @Juliamon YES
LightingExpert13: shadow
thraximore: I knew what it was by the second line :|
Izandai: A clever riddle, but not a hard one.
TacitusVigil: @hexy_lexy Sadly, they're fat even while being empty. :( Although I did manage to find a good skinny wallet.
p_johnston: I know that i suck at riddles.
mtvcdm: I'd have gotten in quicker than fourth place but I was eating a Skittle
hexy_lexy: @TacitusVigil i joke about being poor, but i have a lot of nice things for a poor person. video games and mtg cards cost money
liconthememer: ello
TacitusVigil: @hexy_lexy Same. I hear you.
thraximore: how come?
Izandai: huh
p_johnston: Because they don't want to die.
Arclight_Dynamo: A mark? On his hand? HMMM.
hexy_lexy: @Arclight_Dynamo who is mark? Kappa
4 raiders from kajinotora have joined!
hexy_lexy: welcome raiders!
kajinotora: thanks
nitw_fox: We are here raysY
p_johnston: elven armor?
kajinotora: ended a stream and had someone to raid kajinoHat
mtvcdm: !smash

aClonedPickle: butt
Dandinstorm12: !findquote Beej
LRRbot: Quote #6589: "I'm fine, I hang out with Beej off camera." —Graham [2019-11-28]
Dandinstorm12: hey chat
mtvcdm: Do the big smashy thing
Arclight_Dynamo: Worst case, we dupe more picks.
kajinotora: !findquote cam
ghyllnox: Treat yo self
DoodlestheGreat: If we can't afford a greatsword, how about a moderately acceptable sword?
ContingentCat: why not both?
p_johnston: I mean 780 seems like alot for someone who cant generate infinite money.
Izandai: PrideLaugh
mtvcdm: Games this old it's a surprise if people HAVEN'T torn it to pieces by now
Izandai: The TAS for this game is probably extremely silly.
mtvcdm: If nobody's torn a game this old to pieces it's because nobody wanted to bother playing it.
Izandai: Heck, the RTA for this game is probably silly.
ritchards: tbh, people have probably worked out "change this bit in the code and have infinite everything"
mtvcdm: This was Game Genie era. It was part of the culture to rip games to shreds.
Dandinstorm12: Krondor? Betrayal, apparently
countingku: lol
jibkat: Buy the eal?
ghyllnox: @ritchards yeah, just hex editing
MAPBoardgames: I was taking a nap and missed much of Beejtrayal at Krondor.
RvLeshrac: If you're not cheating, yes, it is... incredibly difficult to buy things from stores. But fortunately, you're not really supposed to ever buy things from stores.
staytoo: OMG, this game.
jibkat: But the eal, its just sitting there
staytoo: remember birds singing all the time :D
MAPBoardgames: Wasn'r rhis the first town we started near?
jibkat: ARE YOU GRAVE ROBBING?
mtvcdm: Casual grave robery
Juliamon: Sure are!
RvLeshrac: This is just grave borrowing.
Arclight_Dynamo: Free... bone?
jibkat: I didnt think Beej would switch to evil so fast
thraximore: man, only having your hands heal themselves? what a crappy power :P
Arclight_Dynamo: See, Krondor came out before morality was invented. Kappa
ritchards: Vigo?
Dandinstorm12: or just true
Juliamon: That's ooooominous
thraximore: A classic
chaostreader: Change to combat skills? In case of an attack?
thraximore: Neat
jibkat: whats next, looting the town?
mtvcdm: Welp, that's that graveyard 100% desecrated, good work everyone
Dandinstorm12: *claps grave dirt off hands*
KeytarCat: can you dupe the fire bolts?
KeytarCat: @mtvcdm welp, back to the graves!
MAPBoardgames: you can dupe them in the river here in town, right?
KeytarCat: That's DOPE. and real flavorful
mtvcdm: I've dealt with customers like this
KeytarCat: Pooh Sticks must be hard in this town
Wodar9: you can haggle indefinitely?
Izandai: Don't you just need to buy one set and then you can dupe them?
Izandai: PrideLaugh
mtvcdm: Duping the haggling. Beej has gone infinite.
Juliamon: Wodar9 It's what we were doing earlier: haggle until they won't let you buy, leave and re-enter, repeat
Membranes1: haggled so hard everything is out of stock
Knightclasse: So is this just a misering simulator?
CaptainSpam: I mean, it's not INTENDED to be... :p
Wodar9: This seems like one of the easiest item duping I have seen
ShadyLantern: the underground looks like an old screensaver
MAPBoardgames: So is Beej just doing the game for reals now?
LightingExpert13: item duping makes me want to play ff7 lol
MAPBoardgames: Thud?
mtvcdm: Drum
MAPBoardgames: ^
mtvcdm: Oh I'm not looking I just do puzzle books in the break room at work all the time
mtvcdm: This my jam
MAPBoardgames: Must... Fill in... The map!
flufff42: Greetings!
hexy_lexy: if you dont fill in the map, youre admitting defeat
KeytarCat: Mortal Lamprey!!
ghyllnox: So when are the crossbows useful? It looks like they're still going in for swords
Dandinstorm12: make it @mtvcdm
Arclight_Dynamo: @mtvcdm I mean... Sierra adventure game. :P
Arclight_Dynamo: Huh.
CaptainSpam: Hoooooo boy.
mtvcdm: RIV
hexy_lexy: oh no
Tajessa: Welp.
MAPBoardgames: None of them are fine.
MAPBoardgames: When 'near death' went away the healing potion recovered a bunch more hp.
MAPBoardgames: Do you gain max HP from being hurt?
chaostreader: This was a learning experience.
Izandai: Are we secretly a trio of saiyans?
MAPBoardgames: "Damn! I get 35xp from sewing my own wounds? I'm rippin' them babies out and sewing them again!"
Arclight_Dynamo: What happens if you know a chest is trapped? Can you do something to get the contents without setting off the trap?
Izandai: That's an awful lot of duders.
Arclight_Dynamo: Blinded?
MAPBoardgames: Wears yellow, therefore can cast spells? Are wizards in this world color-coded?
Scrubbodiestobears: tbf they're colour coded in Dragonlance and in Final Fantasy, too
MAPBoardgames: You have a point. I guess there is precedent.
MAPBoardgames: I'm sure that this game inspired attack of opportunity rules in DnD.
Arclight_Dynamo: There were four, we looked at all of them.
MAPBoardgames: "I know what you're thinking. Did I kill 5 guys or only 4?"
Banrael: Did we order subs? (Sorry, heard five guys, tripped a neuron.)
LightingExpert13: dupe the ring?
MAPBoardgames: Can only dupe stackable items.
Arclight_Dynamo: ^
LightingExpert13: right thanks
LightingExpert13: forgot it wasn't stackable
KeytarCat: Charges and Stacks are labeled in the same place, it confused me for a good half hour today :P
Arclight_Dynamo: Does the packs' description say?
LightingExpert13: does anyone know if the "baddies" respawn after sleep or not?
Arclight_Dynamo: They don't, as I understand it.
LightingExpert13: thank you for the clarification
Dandinstorm12: ez
chaostreader: You do have strong crossbows.
ghyllnox: So turns out when you have the best crossbows, the early boss is easy
ShadyLantern: kicked its ass XD
Arclight_Dynamo: "Yeah, dude, it was, like, super easy? What's wrong with you not being able to do that?" Kappa
Izandai: "You killed the grognag?" "What, like it's hard?"
LightingExpert13: lockpick time
MAPBoardgames: "The Ancient Red Dragon chokes and gags from nausea. With one cruel blow the Ancient Red Dragon is slain."
ContingentCat: alright I've got to go to bed, have fun Beej and co
MAPBoardgames: I mean, Yes. You should always 'save'
Izandai: ABC: Always Be Creatinganewsavefile
