thraximore: What does scouting do?
PixelArtDragon: @thraximore Raises your chances of noticing an ambush
asthanius: Why don't more RPGs have a Literacy skill
asthanius: Make it harder to read books
djalternative: With all the money we're making, can we just buy an entire town? I do wonder how much it would take to purchase nobility?
r10pez10: what's a book
asthanius: Can't read the sign warning you about monsters
asthanius: Can't cast spells because you can't read the scroll
thraximore: @r10pez10 an old data storage tool made of dead organic matter
electra310: Those monsters can't stop me because I can't read!
r10pez10: oh so like hair
chaostreader: Do you want to have crossbow accuracy on now that you have crossbows?
thraximore: @r10pez10 Not quite, but I've been told some people use hair to put the data markings on said... "buoks"
r10pez10: this combat system seems pretty cool actually
asthanius: It's like if a Tactics game was old isometric. And also slow.
PixelArtDragon: The constant switching isn't strictly necessary, it just makes the game much, much easier
djalternative: kinda reminds me of fractured butthole
asthanius: Wasn't that just a normal FF-style battle?
asthanius: Am I forgetting something?
djalternative: no. that was the first one
asthanius: Ahhhh right
asthanius: Always nice when you don't have to spend your infinite money
Arclight_Dynamo: He's *called* Lock-y, after all.
mrverbal: oh this game was gas
djalternative: you know, that is a class of rich person. the class where it's literally an emberassment to spend your own money on something instead of someone else's/getting it for free

electra310: Repairing their armor after they are dead gives them better stats in the afterlife
PixelArtDragon: @electra310 Only if they're Nighthawks lrrBEEJ
MrQBear: I thought you had to burn the armor with the body for it to go with them to the battlefields. ' -'
spleenlord: Hello. How goes the betrayal?
ghyllnox: Going to get low on rations with stackdupe and plenty of dead bodies?
mitomanox: lrrSIGNAL
ghyllnox: @spleenlord we're not at Krondor yet so betrayal is yet to come
Featherweight_: how's everyone is trustworthy at Krondor going?
KeytarCat: Hallo, LRRCers!
MrQBear: Nothing bad has happened and there's nothing suggesting it ever will, Featherweight. ' <' They're just three friends on a grand adventure, right?
spleenlord: It is a bit of a spoiler in the title. How can we trust anyone in Krandor
Juliamon: Like the tweet says, we can just avoid Krondor and lrrFINE
djalternative: The betrayal in the title is of our expectations as nothing will go poorly and it will all just be a run of the mill day
spleenlord: A completely unnoteworthy day in Krandor
Featherweight_: this trick is Betrayal is actually the name of Krondor's trendiest nightclub. We just gonna party
wildpeaks: 'morning, fellow adventurers chyrCoffee
Krelera88: Get the dwarf to teach you about armor crafting
r10pez10: betrayal at house in the hill
Sibwow: have we gotten to krondor yet?
chaostreader: They wouldn’t let you go further down that far hallway.
djalternative: god no
KeytarCat: @Featherweight_ also gonna pickpocket, because whenb at Betrayal at Krondor, you gotta pick a pocket or two
Arclight_Dynamo: @Sibwow We are actively avoiding Krondor until we do sidequests.
CaptainSpam: Maybe the betrayal was that your party said they'd be there, and instead they're out here.
PixelArtDragon: There's nothing else to do here this chapter
Juliamon: good ol' night-vision jewelry
djalternative: When we get to Krondor it'll be the April 11 1954 of this world
PixelArtDragon: Have you done r
PixelArtDragon: Have you done Sumani's training?
djalternative: April 11 1954 being considered the most boring day of the 20th century as nothing of not happened on that day.
TacitusVigil: Have we gotten ye flask yet?
ACrunchySpider: Cheer50
asthanius: Get your ass kicked, level up.
Arclight_Dynamo: Did we bard?
electra310: Getting your ass kicked is the best way to learn!
oatway: crossbow person, or crossbeing imo
electra310: We are the worst customer
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo While you were barding, I studied the crossbow.
LightingExpert13: is haggling on?
DeM0nFiRe: Doing well, how are you?
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil Pffft. :D
JadedCynic: Good, Beej - I'm grinding on an mmo, so birds of a feather :D
Arclight_Dynamo: @LightingExpert13 It is.
MrQBear: So wait, if we haggle him to 'Unavailable', do they become available again later?
Blade_Tiger: Just got out of DMing some Pathfinder, in a mood to just chill with some low-energy LRR
PixelArtDragon: I got up to chapter 7 in my replay last night
LightingExpert13: @Arclight_Dynamo awesome. Didn't see him turn it on.
shaketomakeandbake: Hey Beej!
PixelArtDragon: You don't even need to leave the shop, just the shop screen

KakuEpsilon: I can't believe how excited I have been just to watch Beej do things and chat about stuff.
MrQBear: Oh, I would have assumed it was like "Come back in a few days" that's interesting.
Juliamon: yeah, for all the things in this game that persist, shopkeepers' memory isn't one of them
PixelArtDragon: @mrqbear This game is an interesting mix of "the devs thought of everything" and "how come the devs didn't think of that?"
Arclight_Dynamo: Shopkeepers are truly the dumbest people in this world.
KakuEpsilon: I mean, you can't think of everything
mrverbal: @Arclight_Dynamo at least you can't steal by just standing behind them or use of bucket
KakuEpsilon: Shopkeepers aren't dumb, they just really REALLY need to make money to feed their family
ghyllnox: "You don't want to power your price on this book, shopkeep? Fine, let's argue about the price of each item in your shop. I'll be back, and then maybe you'll reconsider about the book."
mrverbal: These shopkeeprs just lack object permanence
MrQBear: @PixelArtDragon Yeah. It's very neat. I remember playing it a few times, but never getting very far...
electra310: Set them on fire and sell them back!
LightingExpert13: chat, are the items drops random or are they guarantee to always be the same thing?
PixelArtDragon: @lightingexpert13 Always the same
LightingExpert13: @PixelArtDragon thank you. Wasn't sure.
PixelArtDragon: There is literally no random generation in this game
Arclight_Dynamo: Haggle on the book with Owyn, I guess?
TVsNate: If nothing else an item tends to be much more exciting when it's on fire, and that should really be worth something.
Arclight_Dynamo: He has the best stat.
KakuEpsilon: Well, the Haggle Stat goes up no matter who the item is dropped on
obijam_: I love how the shop doesn't acknowledge sovereigns or royals
Arclight_Dynamo: Noice!
obijam_: gold or silver only!
Arclight_Dynamo: It 100% said tavern before.
r10pez10: the mythical village of "the dog"
Arclight_Dynamo: o_O
PixelArtDragon: Well, they're "gold sovereigns" and "silver royals"
djalternative: Beej chose "That" for 200. What's his question, Alex?
obijam_: ah of course
mrverbal: It's the name of an acrobat; Ann Quarrel
KakuEpsilon: Either that, or Quarrel is pronounced as Uarrel.
PixelArtDragon: Important trick I found out for this: if you hover the cursor over the book, you can just press "enter" to read again
djalternative: Find and replace strikes again
Papperslappen: Ah, so the reason the "how to get rich quick" books doesn't work is that you need to buy and read 100 of them for them to work
Arclight_Dynamo: Woof.
obijam_: do you start taking dmg after rations are gone?
mrverbal: just spend a week reading
KakuEpsilon: @Papperslappen Nah, the reason they don't work is we don't have our Wealth stat selected.
obijam_: I've never met a book that could starve out
Papperslappen: KakuEpsilon ofc, noob mistake
r10pez10: just like real life
MrQBear: Up all night to get -- better at shooting a crossbow marginally?
MrQBear: If it's been 21 days, can you bard again?
Arclight_Dynamo: Do we want to exhaust the book to get it out of our inventory?
Vector_Zero: So happy to see this game turn up in the VODs. Glad I get to catch this live!
MrQBear: Maybe throw the book at locklear so he can get a few points?
LightingExpert13: can you dupe books too?
Arclight_Dynamo: No, you can only dupe stackable items.
LightingExpert13: it looked stackable but the number must mean something else
Juliamon: It's a use number
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, that's a neat way to show the spell result.
LightingExpert13: i see. Thanks for the clarification
Juliamon: Assume it's a book that, by the time you've read it that many times, it just falls apart at the spine
Arclight_Dynamo: And a chest to the left of the dudes?
KakuEpsilon: I find myself giggling at the fact that Books aren't stackable, but crossbow arrows are.
LightingExpert13: @Juliamon interesting way to think of it. I like that a lot thanks.
KakuEpsilon: Well, except what happened with the book seemed to be "Nope, I've literally learned everything I can by reading this, it's worthless now."
PixelArtDragon: It has like 2 cases where it's amazing and all the others it's meh
Juliamon: Get back here, coward
r10pez10: Despair Thy Eyes is one letter away from DTF
KakuEpsilon: I do love that the arrow just kept going offscreen, so I imagine that hours later, we'll fine an arrow sticking out of a tree.
KakuEpsilon: Despair My Fyes.
r10pez10: some say that arrow is still travelling to this day
Vector_Zero: Despoil my thighs
KakuEpsilon: Ew, gross. :P
asthanius: that's a different game
r10pez10: cannot unsee Locklear as Brian David Gilbert
TacitusVigil: @r10pez10 Time's Arrow: The Origin Story
asthanius: never nick an elf's booty
asthanius: at least, not without permission
KakuEpsilon: @asthanius Depends on how fast you are.
MrQBear: Was Lucan the idiot that tried to pick your pocket and got caught? ' -'
PixelArtDragon: I think Tyr-Sog or Lorien, he wanted the contents of that lockbox
TacitusVigil: @asthanius If you have permission, you're not nicking it.
asthanius: @TacitusVigil That's part of the roleplay ;)
TacitusVigil: :P
thraximore: I want a vial of that man's piss
asthanius: "To test?" "That too"

SK__Ren: Is that the one the guy wanted us to check?
Vector_Zero: And some of the drugs he’s taking too
KakuEpsilon: @asthanius *snort*
PixelArtDragon: "Do we have to drink our own urine?" "No, but it's sterile and I like the taste"
Arclight_Dynamo: We have later use for the emerald?
asthanius: We need to collect all the emeralds so we can turn into Super Krondor, I think?
KakuEpsilon: Oh no, he beat me to the joke.
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: 0x0A
PixelArtDragon: You do need an emerald for a couple of later sidequests
djalternative: No, this is Betrayal at Krondor and Knuckles so we transform into Hyper Krondor
TacitusVigil: "Beej 4: The Quest For Beej" will continue after these messages from our fine sponsors!
gkingrat: I am holding my breath for the best quest in the game- the one so good it didn't make it into the book version: The quest for ale.
asthanius: Beej 4: The Quest 4 Beej
DarkMorford: Beer!
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative We only do that if we manage to get the Chonker Emeralds
TacitusVigil: Wait, you just gave me a brilliant idea @DarkMorford
TacitusVigil: Ian brews a custom Moonbase beer called...Beerj
MrQBear: Aha! I did remember correctly!
DarkMorford: If you nick your booty, consider buying a new razor.
PixelArtDragon: Barding is 1/tavern/chapter I believe
edgiestick: Man, this game was my jam back when I was a kid
Vector_Zero: Deece
DarkMorford: I never played this one, but I'm quite familiar with Sierra games from that time period.
djalternative: and now as an adult, it's your preserves?
KakuEpsilon: Fluid Money was not the best idea to drink.
DarkMorford: There's a reason "save early, save often" became a common saying.
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative *Snort* No that was terrible but I still enjoyed it
Vector_Zero: Safer than liquids swords.
Vector_Zero: *liquid
KakuEpsilon: @Vector_Zero I'm pretty sure that's what is in Antifreeze
KakuEpsilon: Tastes sweet going down, but then it hits your stomach and you die. >>;
ritchards: need some kinda of background music during these segments
KakuEpsilon: There is some, but it's faint, I thought?
ritchards: battle music!
ritchards: well I dispair...
Vector_Zero: Which pair?
KakuEpsilon: Dispair, not Datpair.
djalternative: dat pair
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: the other pair
Basic_Human_Decency: why is that wizard flashing everyone? Kappa
Vector_Zero: :)
djalternative: now I'm just reminded of my favorite variety of peaches that cannot be grown anymore due to global warming/climate change
KakuEpsilon: I mean, Repair is to fix something, so Despair is breaking the eyes, right?
SK__Ren: What a snipe
ritchards: still more accurate than XCOM 90%!
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative I'm sorry you can't get a specific type of buttfruit.
Vector_Zero: Peaches come in a can...
djalternative: @djalternative They were called Loering peaches and they literally tasted like candy. Not "Nature's Candy" like some people would call fruit but "Holy shit! How the hell did this come from nature?!" candy
KakuEpsilon: @Vector_Zero Not the good ones
Basic_Human_Decency: no they were just living their best life. until you
Vector_Zero: (They were put there by a man in a factory downtown)
Arclight_Dynamo: So I take it that you can only repair a blade/armour once, until it takes more damage, then you can repair it again?
djalternative: @Vector_Zero They were put there by a man
djalternative: If I had my little old way, I'd have peaches every day
hexy_lexy: hey friends! reminder that yall are wonderful and i value each and every one of you!
ritchards: An ambush! Didn't see that coming!
djalternative busts out acoustic guitar
djalternative: Movin' to the country! Gonna eat a lot of peaches!
KakuEpsilon: "Oh no an Ambush whatever will we do?" "Just blind the guy and shoot him with arrows?" "Oh, right like we always do."
Arclight_Dynamo: Huuuuh, interesting.
SK__Ren: ooh, free elven armor
djalternative: POT USA was a great band
Vector_Zero: 👍
hexy_lexy: hope yall had a lovely day
Vector_Zero: God, social distancing dude!
wildpeaks: Oh Good
mercano82: Can you imagine living through a plauge?
ritchards: 21% plague, as you do
PMAvers: That's a dude that just came back from PAX.
wildpeaks: this is now a 21% speedrun
ritchards: Any healing pack for that guy? No? Sod him then!
mrverbal: it's a virulent plague, no one knows what do! ...have you tried literally any amount of healing
SK__Ren: Stranger?
Arclight_Dynamo: ^
CaptainSpam: Sounds about right
KakuEpsilon: Crossfire!
JadedCynic: or better yet, have the best healer in the party treat him
dkosa: stranger
djalternative: Jesus
Vector_Zero: Priests are running a healing racket
KakuEpsilon: Strangler!
Arclight_Dynamo: FWIW, I'm straight up guessing. No guide.
ritchards: I don't think any of us are using a guide...
ritchards: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
CaptainSpam: Yeah, that wasn't going off a guide, that's a riddle the structure of which I've heard before. :)
ritchards: I guessed that as well
JadedCynic: @mrverbal to be fair, we're adventurers, we're exceptional in our skills, and the average villager doesn't HAVE any healing skill - that's why the ONLY person anyone knows of having avoided this plague is "Michele THE HEALER" vOv
dkosa: I got it from the hints, I didn't even know there was a guide
Rhuantavan: Hi everyone!
KakuEpsilon: I'm pretty sure we are just too smart for the riddles. :D
djalternative: These riddles aren't exactly difficult or uncommon
ApplicativeJones: that particular riddle was right up there with "Speak friend and enter"
hexy_lexy: nice
mrverbal: @JadedCynic sure, fair - but still slightly amusing
CaptainSpam: I still can't help but think they just digitized Ken Williams to play the part of Locklear.
JadedCynic: well, maybe more "too familiar with riddles" :D
SK__Ren: Yeah, long word. Noun that defines a relationship.
KakuEpsilon: @ApplicativeJones That wasn't a riddle, that was instructions.
oatway: how's everyone enjoying Betrayal! At The Disco
djalternative: Now, the riddle, "There are a bunch of strangers in a cabin in the middle of the woods and they're all dead. How did they get there and how did they die?" is a difficult riddle
JadedCynic: @CaptainSpam nah, by '93 Ken didn't look like Locklear does ;0
SK__Ren: @ApplicativeJones You *will* invite him into your home... yeah a bit imperative there
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative Strangled?
ritchards: @djalternative was it the shit weasels?
JadedCynic: @djalternative Sam Raimi
mrverbal: @djalternative although that one doesn't work so well in a medieval context
djalternative: no to all. keep guessing. I'm sure you can figure it out
djalternative: @mrverbal true
KakuEpsilon: Donner party?
dkosa: shoot him
JadedCynic: yeah, but it's far more entertaining to 'go for the funny' :)
JadedCynic: *keeps mum for anyone else guessing*
djalternative: I'll give out a hint. The key word in that riddle is cabin
JadedCynic: and yeah, I didn't 'figure it out' I've heard it before ;)
KakuEpsilon: "Your archery skill has gone up!" "I hit Owyn!"
Arclight_Dynamo: @djalternative Plane crash?
KakuEpsilon: Did they die by Taxi
ritchards: Night of the Living Dead?
JadedCynic: @KakuEpsilon well, we learn more from our mistakes than our successes ;)
djalternative: @Arclight_Dynamo bingo
MAPBoardgames: I'm late for Beejtrayal at Krondor! Did I miss anything?
KakuEpsilon: OH
Vector_Zero: No.
KakuEpsilon: Damn that is a good riddle
Vector_Zero: Well, there was some betrayal.
JadedCynic: @MAPBoardgames we caught a plague - imagine the chances of that! :D
Vector_Zero: But just a little.
KakuEpsilon: We got the plague.
mrverbal: but as yet no Krondor
MAPBoardgames: Sick!
Vector_Zero: Not any more!
KakuEpsilon: @MAPBoardgames Yes, the poor guy really was, had a sign on his door and eveyrthing.
JadedCynic: we've been getting better and better in things - haggling, bard-ing, repairing things, picking locks, owyn's spell casting & the others' combat skills
KakuEpsilon: Drink the Tith Piss
djalternative: We are not playing Betrayal at Krondor. We are enacting the absurdist play Waiting for Krondor
JadedCynic: we cleared out the Mac (dwarven dungeon)
Arclight_Dynamo: @djalternative I thought it was "Locklear and Gorath Are Dead." Kappa
JadedCynic: ^^^
KakuEpsilon: Did you just try to whetstone the whetstone?
Arclight_Dynamo: This game seems like a whole bunch of interesting systems that were put into place with *no* consideration of how they could be exploited.
KakuEpsilon: Oh cool, Loriel, we can finally get our hair washed.
Arclight_Dynamo: A haggling manual? :D
TacitusVigil: Is Kingdom Goods the Princess Auto of Krondor?
JadedCynic: @djalternative I'm with Arclight - we're the minor duo accompanying the titular character in "Waiting for Gorath" - most of the script is Prince Arutha getting impatient with Pug etc
SK__Ren: Haggle for it
Xenguin47: haggle haggle
hexy_lexy: ABC - Always Be Haggling Kappa
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo hey, someone had to go first ;)
MAPBoardgames: Armor doesn't seem like it is worth the bag space
PixelArtDragon: If you can successfully haggle for it, do you even need the book?
CaptainSpam: Locklear's swords to sell?
MAPBoardgames: But can you return a half-eaten bag of chips?
KakuEpsilon: Don't you have more broadswords?
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic Oh, totally. QA likely didn't even *think* to do these sorts of exploits.
Basic_Human_Decency: drink it Kappa
Xenguin47: It's beer, Beej. You drink it.
thraximore: Ale is for drinking, Beej LUL
LightingExpert13: to have a good time
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo to be fair, QA didn't really EXIST back then
LightingExpert13: wow
thraximore: :)
Xenguin47: Sweet, I sound better than I thought I did!
PMAvers: The mechanical benefit?
thraximore: Wow, I really DO sound like that
CaptainSpam: Oh, crap, he's figured out what we sound like! Everybody hide! :)
JadedCynic: Oh SNAP Chat! lrrBEEJ
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic Depends on the company. At Infocom, it did. At Sierra? Eeeeenh...
hexy_lexy: to be fair, that impression isnt that far off :p
Basic_Human_Decency: Ale makes the screen even blurrier Kappa
MAPBoardgames: I'm a wise-ass? At least part of me is smart.
Vector_Zero: Dad?!
thraximore: ungettable umbraEZ
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo dynamix was kinda small and young, even at this point
Arclight_Dynamo: I have found an answer for what that ale is for.
Xenguin47: Is this the guy who cooks the barrels of ale?
mrverbal: I cannot over emphasise how much when in road quest you all started talking about 'princess auto' I though it was 'princess otto'
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo Cooking?
dkosa: wise-ass>dumb-ass
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil Nope!
PixelArtDragon: See, that's why it's important to use lrrBEEJ when being a wise-ass, because then it means it's said in Beej's voice lrrBEEJ
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo But his name is Alescook!
JadedCynic: @dkosa "The failure mode of 'clever' is 'jackass'"
thraximore: Isn't that the whole point of a healer?
karpma: hope she's a literal snake
KakuEpsilon: "I mean everyone dies eventually."
thraximore: @karpma hiss hiss yes I am healer
Akaiatana: You pay her on a sliding scale
Xenguin47: Don't forget to oil your healers, folks.
thraximore: LFG healer snake spec
Vector_Zero: 👏
KakuEpsilon: Heck yeah, finally we can teleport!
JadedCynic: betch this is 'her house' - and she's a Priestess of Ishap ;)
MAPBoardgames: Click your heels 3 times and say "there's no place like home"
KakuEpsilon: Oh boy, we can use this cold flame to melt the Hot Ice
Akaiatana: It may be better to teleport to avoid mIshaps
ghyllnox: I've been reading the wiki, and as far as stack duplication, the base price of a stack of picklocks is 1260r. The base price of a stack of flaming quarrels is 7500r, if you needed more money faster

JadedCynic: I mean how far is this temple from the village with the plague?
JadedCynic: blassing catalogue ;)
PixelArtDragon: The oracle is basically the in-game "where should I go now" place
Arclight_Dynamo: Can you bless a crossbow?
JadedCynic: well, there's our answer :D
Xenguin47: I feel badgey. o.o
JadedCynic: oh wait, maybe because it's ELVEN?
thraximore: Hm
djalternative: it's too lewd to be blessed
KakuEpsilon: Inappropriate to bless this devilish bow
thraximore: bless this sandwich
JadedCynic: much difference a little makes a diff
Vector_Zero: Maybe a Cross bow is inherently holy.
Vector_Zero: Or angry.
KakuEpsilon: Well, it does make the enemies full of holes.
JadedCynic: maybe a god of the hunt would be the one to bless xbows
Arclight_Dynamo: "Yeah... I think Imma shop around for a better god."
SK__Ren: Yes. (Lock)Picky
MAPBoardgames: An adventurer has to be very picky when it comes to divine blessings.
PixelArtDragon: I'd imagine Kahooli and Lims-Kraga are also good
PixelArtDragon: I'd save before that fight
PixelArtDragon: Oh wait, wrong one
KeytarCat: Spare my eyes!
JadedCynic: Yeah, it's been a couple of decades since I last read Feist's stuff - I remember the library getting a NEW first edition of Krondor: The Betrayal when I was going through the older ones they had <3
KakuEpsilon: Ow! You shot me in the chest!
PixelArtDragon: But there's a fight near Tyr-Sog that's very difficult at the beginning
beetboxben: is this magic the gathering
beetboxben: i like magic the gathering
KakuEpsilon: Not at all
beetboxben: is this the new set
PixelArtDragon: It's Magician: the Betrayal
KakuEpsilon: This is almost as old as Magic the Gathering now that you mention it
MAPBoardgames: Go for the eyes, Boo!
Vyous: That magic sound effect sounds like the commodor hustle/friday nights scene start sting
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon well, Pug IS at Krondor...
beetboxben: can you pwease play magic its my nbirthday in 2 hours
CaptainSpam: Man, that would be something. Next MtG set in Arena, it uses Sierra-era VGA graphics.
beetboxben: please play the ixalan draft
beetboxben: im such ha fan
mtvcdm: Good evening, how goes the lockpick duping?
Juliamon: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out for an interactive schedule, or for a Google Calendar version.
beetboxben: either you play magic or I will eat a banana
Juliamon: beetboxben They'll play MtG when it's listed on the schedule
Basic_Human_Decency: if you can taste color you can hear text.
KakuEpsilon: @mtvcdm We're beyond that, we're now getting the plague and stabbing folks.
beetboxben: smh
KakuEpsilon: @Basic_Human_Decency I mean, you can taste color by licking a crayon.
djalternative: I can also hear the symbols scrawled on the screen speak to me, Beej
JadedCynic: yeah, 'heard' on the internet; the information age has given us all synesthesia - we all hear with our eyes ;)
beetboxben: im on da ferry to victoria, ill stream the magic my self
Rhuantavan: Always after Owyn...
Arclight_Dynamo: I think that's the first enemy we let get away all game.
PixelArtDragon: By the way, if you miss with an aimed spell or a crossbow, you can actually hit someone else nearby, which is a cool mechanic (especially when your enemies hit each other)
beetboxben: I did know right away
ghyllnox: Is that our first escapee?
beetboxben: Can you make the time friday night
Arclight_Dynamo: @PixelArtDragon We 100% nailed Gorath with a crossbow earlier.
KakuEpsilon: If you go onto the Youtube, you can watch some Magic content
Rhuantavan: Locklear: "Stop moving so much Moredhel!"
ghyllnox: Do the ones that got away show up later, or is it tracked per encounter?
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon yeah that was rather exhaustive of the devs at the time - not just 'termine hit/miss, but check the projectile's path all the way :)
djalternative: you can specifically watch the lrrmtg this week where they built the decks for the commander game that'll be up tomorrow
Arclight_Dynamo: Skills
JadedCynic: so much opportunity for training <3
Arclight_Dynamo: There ya go.
PixelArtDragon: @ghyllnox I thought they did when I was younger because the text makes it seem that way but apparently not
ghyllnox: Huh, weird. So they're escaping the game,not just the combat. That dude knew what was up
Vector_Zero: Mauve shirt
Arclight_Dynamo: Aw, yeah, look at all this free inventory space...
JadedCynic: he fled the battle, then left the kingdom area altogether and returned to the Mordehel to report their progress in trying to silence Gorath
Redcoaster: didn't expect to see you online at this time, although I guess it's still 10 in Victoria
Arclight_Dynamo: First, it ups your skills. Second, it *feels* right to do it. I dig.
JadedCynic: get some repairing practice before we sell it - it'll increase the sale price too
Basic_Human_Decency: if you put it back everyone will be confused on how they died Kappa
KakuEpsilon: Just rub this whetstone on the Spoiled Rations, it'll fix them right up.
KakuEpsilon: :kappa:
Vector_Zero: It’s the principle
Vector_Zero: Means the bad guys ain’t died in vain for nothing
mtvcdm: Yep. Open at midnight. That one-second window where it is exactly midnight.
djalternative: Sure sounds more like they're closed to you

Arclight_Dynamo: Maybe we need a ruby for a quest later?
KakuEpsilon: Break Number 2! Remember to use the bathroom
JadedCynic: given the issues of stack-duping, maybe we'd end up giving the quality of the first ruby onto the second...
PixelArtDragon: How much armor repair was Isaac expecting to get out of a 1% quality ruby?
JadedCynic: I'm with @KakuEpsilon tho - I'd say the devs made the ruby have low resale value so that you'd keep it for fulfilling the quest
Juliamon: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
PixelArtDragon: You get a lot more money from the quest and there aren't many rubies not in stores at this part of the game
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon weapon...apparently a fair bit, because the swordsmith was talented, and also of a unique interest - didn't care for coin, but only gems & jewelry
PixelArtDragon: Plus (though this isn't a game mechanic), you get on Makala's good side
KeytarCat: I always go into a haze when working hardware. I have a new (old) TV and had to find a place, find a streaming device, and find a controller that would talk to my chosen streaming device
KeytarCat: I have NO IDEA how long I've been on this project
JadedCynic: of course it's also a RUBY - even a 1% ruby may be more valuable than a high-quality piece of seashell? (btw, IRL some seashells are traded like precious gemstones - abalone, eg)
KakuEpsilon: I did just realize that the Shopkeeps have to be exploiting the Duplication Bug too. Otherwise, how do they have infinite items for you to buy?
KeytarCat: Also, hey all! I like how broken these games get but am generally unfamiliar with this one
JadedCynic: you were around earlier in the stream, it can't have been more than 2hrs @KeytarCat
Arclight_Dynamo: 'Sup KeytarCat
KeytarCat: @JadedCynic I was :O
KeytarCat: @Arclight_Dynamo yullo!
djalternative: they secretly all just sell from the same gigantic warehouse
KakuEpsilon: @KeytarCat This one's quite the interesting mess, for sure, and Beej is a fountain of information about this game to boot. It's fascinating and amazing
LunarJade: Sorry, forgot to run the ad break. Another three minute wait...
JadedCynic: @KeytarCat well, let's put it this way - it's from a time when "Quality Assurance" was more a thing to remember to do than a specific job assignment :D
Cinominn: hello all, awfully late for a stream.... interesting
djalternative: oops
KeytarCat: @JadedCynic LUL
Juliamon: yeah, Beej streams are late
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative You say that, but they immediately have infinite sales of items you just gave to them.
djalternative: okay chat, anybody got a good goof prompt for us while we wait the extra 3?
JadedCynic: @JadedCynic @KeytarCat oh wait - I realise I was watching the previous stream's vod just before this - I prolly saw you chat in THAT stream, and confused then and now *blush*
JadedCynic: @Cinominn gotta love the 'wet coast' ;)
KeytarCat: Well, I've been lurking today, it's been my bgm for my project. Just don't remember having time to chat?
djalternative: Last night, I was using "Rearrange the words in a movie title for comedic effect" to pass the time
JadedCynic: it's just gone 10pm htere - given beej's usually busy most of the day, this is probably the only free time he has to stream? 8-11pm
Juliamon: My arm is sore and I had a whole month in which to buy a body pillow in anticipation of this occasion but failed to do so
Cinominn: truth, keep forgetting that it may be midnight here but not for them
KakuEpsilon: Oh no, Julia, how will you ever survive
djalternative: you can always just use...
djalternative: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 10:13 PM
KakuEpsilon: I'll get the bonesaw and we'll just cut the arm off.
Juliamon: I will have to use a random spare pillow *I GUESS*
KeytarCat: @JadedCynic It's also LunarJade's setup, if I heard correctly, so he only gets to play when Heather is done
KakuEpsilon: Is a spare pillow like a Spare tire?
JadedCynic: Good point Keytar!
Juliamon: Basically
KakuEpsilon: Or is it more like a Spare in Bowling
Juliamon: It is, technically, a pillow
JadedCynic: the former
KeytarCat: Sleep between two pillows in the spare bedroom
MAPBoardgames: !advice
LRRbot: Assemble the ham stand.
JadedCynic: also a 'spare tire' can also sometimes be used as a 'spare cushion/pillow' ;)
KakuEpsilon: God, remember when Beej's hair wasn't an eldrich horror wrapped around his head in a nice way?
djalternative: I person can technically be a pillow
MAPBoardgames: @KakuEpsilon no
djalternative: why not just clone yourself and use them as a pillow
Cinominn: i like the new eldrich beej
KeytarCat: I've been a pillow several times!
hexy_lexy: @KakuEpsilon the year was 1929 :p
KakuEpsilon: @MAPBoardgames There's literally a picture of it on the Dice Friends advert.
Basic_Human_Decency: is a body pillow a pillow made of a body?
djalternative: burry yourself in the comfort that is exact replicas of yourself
Cinominn: it can be
KeytarCat: @KakuEpsilon Oh the year was 1778...
MAPBoardgames: Pics or it didn't happen. Wait. No. You're right.
KeytarCat: er, SingsMic
JadedCynic: the year was 1066...
KakuEpsilon: @Basic_Human_Decency Nah, it's a pillow you use to substitute a body if you need to avoid getting assassinated.
hexy_lexy: the year was 1 :p
djalternative: The year was -3.14159...
PixelArtDragon: The year was 2258. The name of the game was Betrayal at Krondor
KakuEpsilon: Man, now I want a slice of pi. :P
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon the streamer, Beej the Forth, had finally delivered Gorath to the titular capital city...
MAPBoardgames: He's back! and he's still half eldritch horror!
gkingrat: @PixelArtDragon Last best hope for peace?
Basic_Human_Decency: imo Beej's hair reminds me of Beethoven
Rhuantavan: Bak A-Krondorin!
PixelArtDragon: It'll be Beej the fifth so it's B5
KakuEpsilon: I like Beej's hair, because it's actually bigger than it looks.
djalternative: Beej = Beethoven confirmed
KakuEpsilon: Beejhoven. :P

KeytarCat: Now I want to refer to Beethoven as Beet
MAPBoardgames: Beej has cracked the code: If he never makes it to Krondor, he can't be betrayed.
djalternative: actually, a beejdrop crapshot involving beethoven would be great
Arclight_Dynamo: Arbitrage!
Basic_Human_Decency: it's a ruby only the 1% have Kappa
KeytarCat: @djalternative What makes something a BeejDrop?
Arclight_Dynamo: That sounds deece. I'm into it.
JadedCynic: @djalternative wait...think about the melody of the beejdrop - it's a dubstep version of the famous stanza from B's 4th!
djalternative: @djalternative it's a series of crapshots where people become beej more or less
KeytarCat: @djalternative tyty
ghyllnox: Not flaming quarrels?
Arclight_Dynamo: Someone was mentioning that flame quarrels sell for more than picks. Dupe those instead?
djalternative: Is prank's stone where we antagonize empoverished citizens and call it entertainment?
JadedCynic: @KakuEpsilon eg this -
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative No, we're the citizens that get pranked
JadedCynic: supplies! \o/
Juliamon: !addquote (Beej) [now] Oh! It's an ambush! ....Hooray!
LRRbot: New quote #7600: "Oh! It's an ambush! ....Hooray!" —Beej [2021-05-08]
thraximore: FBtouchdown
KeytarCat: we just got pranked, can we not get pranked again?
djalternative: something something joke about don't get fooled again by the who
KakuEpsilon: FBtouchdown
JadedCynic: yeah, focus your forces and eliminate one quickly
KeytarCat: won't get fooled again because they'll be dead!
JadedCynic: now it's 3:2
KakuEpsilon: I mean Owyn's a spell caster
KakuEpsilon: So it's really 2.1:2
KeytarCat: @djalternative maybe the abstraction WAS the good joke ldydrgNotes
Arclight_Dynamo: Gorath, pls.
DeM0nFiRe: Direct hit Kappa
JadedCynic: well, if you wanna talk of how effective each member is, it's more like 8:2
JadedCynic: with gorath being 0.8 ;) and Owyn is 6.2 :p
jayder22: just tuned in, are we using any of the broken tricks in this game or no?
Cinominn: this game is WILD, "full motion rendered" tactics battling and first person world exploration.... what doesnt this game have
KakuEpsilon: "Owyn, that Elf keeps shooting me with arrows so I'm hiding with you." "Sounds good."
KakuEpsilon: @Cinominn All the Dupebugs fixed.
PixelArtDragon: It's a little different when the initiative isn't simply "wait your turn", some people can have more turns than others
KakuEpsilon: Broken Crossbow you say?
JadedCynic: ahhhh, the magic words! :D
BBQDelicious: holy damn, this game is old, my buddy used to play this is in highschool
KakuEpsilon: I mean that guy has a Broken Crossbow on him, but I guess we want the Elven Broken Crossbow?
Arclight_Dynamo: Yep.
Arclight_Dynamo: Anything but Elven isn't worth it.
KakuEpsilon: @BBQDelicious You were friends with Beej in High School?
BBQDelicious: @BBQDelicious lol no no, a friend of mine
PixelArtDragon: Neat thing BTW: the inventory sorting always places the higher charges after the lower ones, so the better whetstone will always be the lower/rightmost one
JadedCynic: thinking out loud can help a streamer, but yeah...
JadedCynic: yeah, remember back in the day when you used to play a computer RPG with a GROUP of friends (usually 2-3) and splitting up tasks like mapmaking and notetaking...
BBQDelicious: yea, we used to play this and lords of the realm 2
brianmedhat: BEEJ!!! I remember playing this with you! I just played it a couple months ago.
djalternative: do you think we'll hit a year spent in chapter 1?
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative Nah, we'll be out of it by July.
djalternative: in game year. not meat space year
MrQBear: The idea that we could be playing chapter 1 for a real year gave me some weird primal fear. ' -'
KakuEpsilon: @djalternative Oh, my bad. Mmm, Meat Space.
KakuEpsilon: @MrQBear I also did have a fear.
Arclight_Dynamo: "Meatspace" would be a great name for a BBQ joint...
Vector_Zero: BBQ hotdesking.
KakuEpsilon: @Arclight_Dynamo Dehydrated BBQ as a speciality
KakuEpsilon: Hah, Nice Crossbow Skill
JadedCynic: I remember a review of the original "Rogue" (or a verson published by Epyx - remember them?) it had a parallel 'narrative' of the reveiwers pc going through the game - his 'backstory' was that he was sent into the dungeon to find the Amulet of Yendor to stop a debilitating magical curse infliceted upon his king (sound familiar - I knew I'd heard the Fairymound bit before) - and that 'Warrior the Eighth' returned with the amulet after three years of questing in the dungeon...
djalternative: is there some kind of amazing feat we get to do when we reach 100 on something like weaponcraft?
djalternative: like crafting legendary weapons?
KakuEpsilon: Nope, we can just fix things better.
wildpeaks: books, these legendary artefacts of knowledge
KakuEpsilon: Isn't "Legendary" one of Beej's relatives.
wildpeaks: *gasp* a thing
MAPBoardgames: Read a book. Gain skill points.
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh. So books for low skills are worth.
JadedCynic: that makes sense
KakuEpsilon: That explains why I'm so good at fluff, I've been reading only Manga Fluff for months.
JadedCynic: yeah, it makes sense - at first you'd study something and learn a fair bit, but after awhile you need to practice to get better
JadedCynic: SeemsGood
PixelArtDragon: Haggling so that you can get the increase in haggling is very "it takes money to make money"
JadedCynic: gorath learned a bit about haggling by watching Owyn and the shopkeep doing their thing :D

JadedCynic: WOOF
DeM0nFiRe: Wow that is a nice boost
CaptainSpam: Yow.
JadedCynic: spread the learning around
djalternative: or just spread the learning on toast
KakuEpsilon: Toast?
djalternative: or crackers. whatever suits your fancy
PixelArtDragon: Maybe they're just not open at night?
KakuEpsilon: @PixelArtDragon They're only open during the day, yes, but also we still couldn't get in.
edgiestick: best book
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, wild.
Vector_Zero: Wow.
KakuEpsilon: So this book is "How to do literally everything?"
Arclight_Dynamo: Save then try it.
ritchards: how often can you read a book?
Arclight_Dynamo: Select one, all (of those selected) go up 7.5%, I bet.
Vector_Zero: Best to do 5% to all, right?
KakuEpsilon: @ritchards 100 times before it dies.
NosferDMT: I reread these books recently, pretty cool to see you playing the game
KeytarCat: I always read the ACCY as ANGY
ElissenRedux: omg lol. I love this book
JadedCynic: holy moly
Arclight_Dynamo: Criminy.
CaptainSpam: I'm liking that.
DeM0nFiRe: So it still made everything go up?
PixelArtDragon: Woah
JadedCynic: *everyone liked that*
KakuEpsilon: They all went up a ton
Juliamon: I want me a copy of that book
MrQBear: Take a screenshot, reload and check?
KeytarCat: Isn't that just Moby Dick?
PixelArtDragon: I wish I'd known about this in my current playthrough
KeytarCat: er, Herman Melville
Vector_Zero: 🙀
JadedCynic: scouting 39%
KakuEpsilon: The heck is a Scouting.
PixelArtDragon: @kakuepsilon Sometimes you can be ambushed on the road
JadedCynic: spotting those enemies when THEY try to ambush YOU
Arclight_Dynamo: From the manual: "The Scouting skill allows the character to detect enemy ambushes as theparty is moving around in the world."
KeytarCat: So no back attacks, got it
CaptainSpam: "Guys, check this book out. You're not gonna believe this."
JadedCynic: I mean, there's no tutorial to explain stuff - it's all in the weighty manual ;)
DeM0nFiRe: Oh I see, so I think it is everything not selecting goes up by 5%, everything not selected goes up by 5% PLUS 2.5% divided by the number of skills you selected
PixelArtDragon: "I know it's long, but trust me"
DeM0nFiRe: everything selected goes up by 5% plus 2.5% divided by number of selected*
KakuEpsilon: "Owyn has invented Rock and Roll."
Arclight_Dynamo: Stealth: This skill is used when one of the characters in your party has detected a potential ambush situation with his Scouting skill.
JadedCynic: @KeytarCat you get a surprise round before the regular battle
JadedCynic: to get it to improve, yeah
KakuEpsilon: Arclight_Manual_Autoreader
JadedCynic: rations
PixelArtDragon: Scouting successes will have that popup of "look at that thing, it means there's an ambush"
KakuEpsilon: We're almost to the end of the stream.
KakuEpsilon: And now I realize that the saves are "Beej_p(lay)i(t)f(oward)"
Bearudite: time to save scum som gambles
Arclight_Dynamo: I considered saying it, but chose not to. :p
CaptainSpam: Games of chance? I am in.
djalternative: Well, now I'm obliged to say it. "Gambling? I'm in"
KakuEpsilon: Soft G gambling or Hard G gambling
MrQBear: Gambling? Sorry. I have to re-calibrate my cheating- I mean my Omni-Goggles.
Arclight_Dynamo: Are we doing the ruby thing?
the_motherload: Yes haggle em!
MrQBear: How good is a greatsword?
Arclight_Dynamo: Wow.
KeytarCat: do it
PixelArtDragon: Yes
KeytarCat: we're cheesing money anyway :P
Arclight_Dynamo: Why wouldn't you? You have infinite cash.
Bearudite: you can't spend it if you are dead
djalternative: best I can do is 180 gold off... DEAL
JadedCynic: and here are better swords
Arclight_Dynamo: Is it better than a Tapir?
Vector_Zero: 25%off? Sure
PixelArtDragon: It's like the 4th or 5th best sword in the game
JadedCynic: BAM
ElissenRedux: LUL
edgiestick: LUL
CaptainSpam: Oh.
DeM0nFiRe: yeah so it's a little bit better
CaptainSpam: Well, then.
Arclight_Dynamo: HOLY CRAP
KakuEpsilon: HOLY
FanboyBryan: i'll have what shes having
lyropithic: A minor improvement
KakuEpsilon: That is pretty great.
PMAvers: Somewhere, Adam sits right up in bed, and is like, "...someone out there is doing big damage and I like it."
edgiestick: It's not even the best sword in the game HahaSweat HahaShrugRight
JadedCynic: one word: CLEAVE
Bearudite: the numbers they are so big
ghyllnox: Remember, flaming quarrels are more efficient!
MrQBear: @PMAvers Does he do it in his Vince voice?
Vector_Zero: Cheese the fire bolts?
djalternative: what kind of cheese lockpicks? Brie? Gouda?
edgiestick: tapir is better to swing than thrust, but it's still not as good
JadedCynic: @MrQBear naturally...
PixelArtDragon: You see plenty of goblins starting in chapter 4
KakuEpsilon: @MrQBear Pretty sure he did that when we got the Tith Piss
KakuEpsilon: Box!
Arclight_Dynamo: We also know a place that will bless our new swords if we want.
JadedCynic: no news is good news
SymmetraMan: wow this brings back memories
KakuEpsilon: Oh, we already got that
PixelArtDragon: I wish the Keshian Tapir was better, but I don't think I've ever encountered it when I didn't already have broadswords
KakuEpsilon: Walking backwards into a town could be fun.
KakuEpsilon: "Don't reorganize stuff after I buy it, jeez!"
Arclight_Dynamo: Now... does a sold and re-bought ruby count for the quest? Or does that make it a non-plot item?
KakuEpsilon: @Arclight_Dynamo You overestimate this game.
TheBearBee: Beejman is still streaming?
PixelArtDragon: @arclight_dynamo I don't think "quest item" is a tag for items in this game
KakuEpsilon: We're almost done, BearBee
Vector_Zero: Now... will finishing the quest remove all rubies from inventory?
TheBearBee: @KakuEpsilon That's what they all say
PixelArtDragon: There are items whose only use is for quests, though
JonnyGlitch: Oh wow I was going to watch the VOD but you're still going!
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo I don't think there's a changeable 'quest item' flag on items, just their item id matches a quest
JonnyGlitch: Hey Everybody!
KakuEpsilon: Welcome to the bonus time
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. Well, seems you're all right. :D
PixelArtDragon: Yes, this is definitely the exact same ruby that was stolen lrrBEEJ
Arclight_Dynamo: Bolts are better, remember?
thraximore: now will he remember that you've already done it? is he smarter than a shopkeep? LUL
ghyllnox: Dupe the quarrels! It's more efficient
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo again, it seems like RPG devs learned a lot about 'preventing exploits' from early games like this :)
Vector_Zero: Definitely didn’t Banarch Tarski that ruby...
Bus_NA: Man, I feel like it's 1993 again....
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic No kidding. :D
JonnyGlitch: I'm picking this up this arvo and will be playing along
KakuEpsilon: "Yup, totally the same ruby. Don't go to the Fletcher's Post and see their copies."
JonnyGlitch: I may go the hexedit route
thraximore: "A wizard did it. I am a wizard... I did it."
Arclight_Dynamo: We are cheating authenitcally to 1993.
PixelArtDragon: It's in-game so it's "legal"
Arclight_Dynamo: *authentically
JonnyGlitch: Hexedit is less of a hassle because using modern Memory Modifiers does NOT play well with DOSBOX
PixelArtDragon: @jonnyglitch You can edit the savefile though
JadedCynic: also you're less likely to 'crash' the game by creating an out-of-bounds error...
JonnyGlitch: I also prefer to edit a save in older games, impossible to screw it up
Vector_Zero: Krondor as Richard Garfield intended
KakuEpsilon: Beej, I am glad you're doing it this way. Spending more time in game and watching you talk about this game with such passion makes it all worth while.
thraximore: @Vector_Zero LUL
JonnyGlitch: Hell Notepad++ could probably parse the savefile
thraximore: Although... this game was around when MtG was new
DeM0nFiRe: Who among us can truly say they didn't duplicate rare candies and master balls in Pokemon Red
JonnyGlitch: actually it has a Hexedit plugin so I know it can
PixelArtDragon: You're also using elven crossbows which have a bonus to accuracy
KakuEpsilon: CAn you make Flaming POISON Quarrels?
JadedCynic: I mean, if you know the source code you're working with, you're literally fine (apart from typos ;) )
djalternative: I didn't but also, I didn't know you could @DeM0nFiRe
PixelArtDragon: Unfortunately no, but not for lack of trying @kakuepsilon
JonnyGlitch: @KakuEpsilon Fire is like a matter poison
djalternative: fire is simply a matter accelerant
KakuEpsilon: @JonnyGlitch Well, Monster Hunter would like to argue that they are two different things at least.
otakon17: Man I have never actually seen this game in action
JonnyGlitch: It's like amphetamines for atoms!
Arclight_Dynamo: "Shoulda hired more testers, idiots." Kappa
JadedCynic: fire is just a really REALLY fast oxidation reaction ;)
JonnyGlitch: This game was straight up impossible for some kids my age
asddsa28: aaaahh the speed run thinking
otakon17: if you can do it in game, then it's not cheating
KeytarCat: Cheating and Exploiting are terms of art within those communities
JonnyGlitch: yeah I learnt this trick off the BBS
KeytarCat: and this is an Exploit, not a cheat
KakuEpsilon: Big Bathroom Stall?
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo scratch out 'more' and tack on 'instead of having everyone else do double-duty' is more like with the development in the early 90s
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic Not wrong.
otakon17: like the Takonomics trick in Saga Frontier
Basic_Human_Decency: missing no. is a cheat and a bug but it became a accepted part of gaming culture regardless.
JonnyGlitch: it's like you're doing that money changing scam con artists to to cashiers
otakon17: you kind of NEED it to afford gear and items since battles give out so little cash
JadedCynic: exactly otakon
TheBearBee: In your head cannon, which one of the three is doing the dark magic of item duping and are the other two complacent with it?
JonnyGlitch: This cheat was as much of this game's culture as the game
otakon17: you have a quintillion stacks
Arclight_Dynamo: Also... this store buys quarrels, but not picks. So...
otakon17: reminds me of the item duping trick in Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance
KakuEpsilon: Normal Ass Arrows are right next to the Arrows of Backstabbing.
otakon17: you could drop items, then re-import your character
JadedCynic: any of them, 'seigneurs' in Midkemia didn't seem terribly virtuous
otakon17: and then pick up the copies
Vector_Zero: Oh man, I had a bad case of ass arrows this one time
JonnyGlitch: it's good to have options
ghyllnox: Weird, the base price for those was super high...
otakon17: also Beeg playing games is a treat for me
JadedCynic: but Gorath seems a more 'simple and honest' type of person, so prolly Owyn following Locklear's lead
Basic_Human_Decency: pot shoes?
otakon17: what are the gemstones for?
Arclight_Dynamo: @ghyllnox I think it varies by shop, too.
KakuEpsilon: @Vector_Zero I don't know how that got me so bad that I lost the ability to breathe from laughing
JonnyGlitch: plus if you're gonna dump it, dump it when you have to, you'll be further down the road
Vector_Zero: ;)
thraximore: Gesundheit.
KakuEpsilon: @Basic_Human_Decency They're socks that make you move stealthy
ghyllnox: It does @arclight_dynamo but it's like 6x difference, I'd have thought it'd be a bit higher
Basic_Human_Decency: ah
otakon17: 15 emeralds?
JonnyGlitch: @Basic_Human_Decency they're actually socks, they go inside your boots
JadedCynic: no, quality
JonnyGlitch: dang it
otakon17: OH
otakon17: that's...interesting
JonnyGlitch: Wow, Rubies IRL are one of the most valuable stones
otakon17: I'm assuming the paper packages are rations
JadedCynic: @JonnyGlitch that was one of Feist's way of showing how Midkemia was different than Earth vOv
JadedCynic: *ways
otakon17: aw and I just got here
KakuEpsilon: Have a good night~
thraximore: Dare you to keep going :)
JonnyGlitch: @JadedCynic I don't remember that, weird!
ghyllnox: Enchanted poisoned quarrels have a lower base price than flaming ones, enchanted ones are higher though
otakon17: I've always been interested in Betrayal at Krondor
Basic_Human_Decency: go offline then go back online?
Arclight_Dynamo: Take the stream down, bring it up. To split the VOD?
JonnyGlitch: you got then golden sovs
djalternative: if commander can make long vods, you can too
JadedCynic: and they become an editing issue for whoever has to put it up on YouTube ;)
KakuEpsilon: Besides, some of us have Mother's Day stuff to do tomorrow.
KakuEpsilon: American Mother's Day. >>;
JonnyGlitch: I've had this tune in my head since your first stream
otakon17: thanks for what I caught
JadedCynic: oh....right. Mother's day :\
CaptainSpam: Thanks for the stream, Beej!
thraximore: Night Beej! Thanks for the stream
JonnyGlitch: Thanks for the show! I'll be watching the VOD directly
JadedCynic: whew
djalternative: adios
ghyllnox: Ty for streaming! lrrHEART
Arclight_Dynamo: Neat, this is *super* fun. See you next time! :D
otakon17: night Beej
JadedCynic: yeah, take it easy - 3hrs is plenty
ElissenRedux: this has been a ton of fun to watch Beej
otakon17: I wish I would have known earlier I would have came by earlier
