CaptainTempest: Can you only focus on so many skills at a time?
Negarretep: It wastes your turn LUL
Arclight_Dynamo: It's the scale in combat.
JadedCynic: oh crap
ghyllnox: @captaintempest The more you have selected, the slower they increase
thraximore: woah that's quite a few of em
JadedCynic: that 'assesses' you oppenent
DoodlestheGreat: Just saw the new Checkpoint, Beej. Congrats on the vaccination!
McMims: their hair is mesmerizing
22 raiders from CommanderRC have joined!

Arclight_Dynamo: Ah! Neat, thank you!

thraximore: Oh, they're trolls and not just very hairy men
JadedCynic: ahoy raiders! lrrHORN
thraximore: why are they running?
CommanderRC: Hey kids!
Niahlah: this TOTALLY reminds me of the OLD Sierra games.. like.. Day of the Tentacle
MTGRanger: lrrHEART lrrHEART

thraximore: Ah so it's specific to the trolls
JadedCynic: well, the skill increases based on usage, not 'n xp for monster kill'
MTGRanger: Troll-B-Gon
McMims: an anti-troll tuning fork, got it
plummeting_sloth: Trolls of course are well known to have perfect pitch and the tuning fork offends them
thraximore: Must have been at least four arrows
Niahlah: OMG.. that Magnum P.I hair
thraximore: What the tuning fork from a random enemy or was it somewhere you were likely to find (i.e. the devs put it there deliberately)?
plummeting_sloth: Locklears best stat is "styling"
Arclight_Dynamo: You know, I'm honestly shocked with how advanced this game's engine was for the time.
JadedCynic: oh wait...the tuning fork has a limited # of uses... :(
thraximore: Almost 60 though, that's quite a bit
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo yeah, really pushed the 'state of the art'
Arclight_Dynamo: "Assess" also gives us the name of enemies, which might end up being fun.
JadedCynic: pawn shop
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic Right? Doom and Myst were out around the same time, and they "cheated." An actual 3D rendered game is wild.
MTGRanger: This game looks so neat
Tiber727: The enemy had fled. "I don't like the way this feels," Locklear said. "It's possible there are more lying in wait for us. Let's make sure we aren't here should they decide to come look for us."
e_bloc: Corgo300 to think this game is almost 30 years old is amazing
MTGRanger: Where is this game available?
CaptainSpam: It's definitely a classic for a reason.
MTGRanger: If anywhere?
CaptainSpam: GOG, I believe.
Juliamon: MTGRanger GOG, Steam
Arclight_Dynamo: @MTGRanger Steam and GoG.
MTGRanger: Oh cool, thanks friends!
Arclight_Dynamo: It's about $7.00 CAD, and is bundled with the sequel.
plummeting_sloth: I will say, and this is not meant as an insult, the name of "Betrayal at Krondor" does sound like a name for a fake game in like a sitcom. Like the cones of dunshire
Montesque64: I remember this being one of my dad’s favorite games, and consequently one of the first I was aware of. Return is one of the first RPG’s I actually remember playing.
MTGRanger: Oh yeah ‘betrayal at krondor’ sounds like a fake game or an old dnd module for 1st or 2nd edition
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth it was an older time - simplicities back then are 'too simple' now
plummeting_sloth: I mean, I really get why Beej wants to put off going to Krondor. Like, the game puts it right on the tin
JadedCynic: @MTGRanger glares at the association of those two very different things, impling 1st & 2nd ed is 'fake'? ;)
plummeting_sloth: WOOF
JadedCynic: also '1st ed' was called "AD&D" Thank. You. Very. MUCH! LUL
SplittingImage77: Hey there everyone
JadedCynic: "I was there, Gandalf" ;)
Vector_Zero: Interesting challenge coming up with a name that has brand recognition for feist fans but approachable for new people
MTGRanger: @jadedcynic oh no lol! What I mean is that those editions names were pretty different
MTGRanger: Hahahaha
JadedCynic: :D
Montesque64: Everyone knows the first “real” edition of Dnd was 4th. Kappa
plummeting_sloth: ah, nothing like mid-day graverobbing in view of a publi road
MTGRanger: Best time AND place for grave robbing
DarkMorford: Hey everyone
SquareDotCube: aim for the head!
JadedCynic: "*wave cane threateningly* why in MY day, D&D only had three alignments: "lawful", "neutral" & "chaotic", and "elf" was a CLASS, and only went up to level 9!" Kappa
corefluxx: Fire vs. Undead... sounds good to me
Neddy471: This feels a lot like QG3/QG4, TBH.
plummeting_sloth: so, is there anything in that grave now
JadedCynic: (srsly tho, hearing someone comment "this was my dad's fave game..." really makes my arthritic joints flare up... geezer.gif
johnalogue: did we *want* to find normal corpses?
Vector_Zero: Regret
Montesque64: Ah, yes. Back in the days of THAC0
plummeting_sloth: Hi Castle!
SquareDotCube: I hear there's a man there
JadedCynic: so, is there a man to meet, in High Castle?
Vector_Zero: A perfectly logical system, THAC0
JadedCynic: Spoilers: it's just a temple, all staffed with women ;)
DarkMorford: Castle Anthrax?
JadedCynic: @Vector_Zero yeah, it shows its origins in tabletop wargames with their combat-results-tables
Vector_Zero: A man, or the man
Vector_Zero: Or The Man
SplittingImage77: Theman
JadedCynic: @DarkMorford thank you! I'm old, so I forgot the reference ;)
Arclight_Dynamo: That's a really nice bit of pixel art.
johnalogue: it's built on the foundation of The Onion Router?
JadedCynic: yeah, the art is really pretty good, considering
plummeting_sloth: ah, the GTA excuse for keeping you out of a place. "bridges out"
Montesque64: @vector_zero certainly not a system that could ever be confusing, with pluses being bad and lower numbers being good.
MTGRanger: This game really has that feel of “people cared about this while making it” so much care for random names and notes, it’s just great
JadedCynic: (I mean, I just watched someone play the latest RE game with it's beautiful mountainside vistas, and this surprsigingly holds its own)
MaddogM: first thought when opening the stream: "I'd forgotten how old the game is"
plummeting_sloth: and of foolish experts!
SplittingImage77: Potstickers but made out of goblin
Vector_Zero: @montesque64 not at all ;)
JadedCynic: @MTGRanger yeah, Dynamix were a great dev house - Red Baron...original MechWarrior...this... <3
Arclight_Dynamo: Nice!
JadedCynic: KA-CHING
thraximore: ooh dragon plate
MTGRanger: @jadedcynic oh yeah newer games might be flashier and have better graphics and more TRIANGLES but these older games have so much awesome art
plummeting_sloth: we stole some dragons plates and turned it into armor
Montesque64: A Tsurani crossbow! Man, the “of the Empire” trilogy is still probably my favorite of Feist’s books.
Vector_Zero: Dragon soup bowl helmets, dragon olive fork bidents...
JadedCynic: like "Barbarian's ABCs" in TES :D
plummeting_sloth: ermgd, Rmur
JadedCynic: LUL
SplittingImage77: Maybe they charge by the letter, so that's why they used Rmur
KeytarCat: Can you toggle skills by clicking the blade of the associated sword?
TheMandrew: really, dragonplate is just lying around the road? that sounds like someone that you'd have to get from a dragon
Vector_Zero: Rmur is my favourite fltwd mc album
JadedCynic: it wasn't 'illiterate' - it was in CODE to try to keep the craft secrets from the commoner's eyes
johnalogue: I feel like lost armor would be a more dangerous thing to use than lost weapons, considering only the former's condition is very much tied to the condition of the owner
KeytarCat: Last time you had it up was the first time I got a gauge for the edge of the click-box :P
JadedCynic: inB4 Beej realises the shop is selling it at UNDER the mean price ;)
MTGRanger: Lol yeah
Montesque64: This makes me want to reread the Riftwar again.
Vector_Zero: I mean, isn’t buying dragon plate partly why we duped?
Negarretep: What's the point in having infinite money if you don't spend infinite money?
ritchards: Hey Beej, given you've been grinding, would you say you are actually overleveled?
JadedCynic: okay, my attention was on my other monitor and I began to think the stream hecked out or something for a sec from the silence :D
DarkMorford: Nah, just a rare Beej-in-the-tank
JadedCynic: @ritchards there's the question, how much grind do we NEED? Would we reach a point of 'diminshing returns'?
Montesque64: @ritchards oh, he is 100% overleveled for where he currently is in the plot, though not necessarily for where he is geographically.
BlueBuddhaX: it cracks me up that you try to save 100 gold when you can make money
MTGRanger: We should repair our potions! lrrBEEJ
Vector_Zero: Hmm, only 55 sovereigns here?
hexy_lexy: hey all you wonderful friends who i love beyond measure! <3
DarkMorford: Beej cheats, but he's not gonna CHEAT. :p
Mysticman89: it's the principle of the matter. Gotta get those deals
plummeting_sloth: ooh, can we bard here?
brianmedhat: I remember playing this with you back in high school! I love this game. Played it some more a few months ago
DeM0nFiRe: I can definitely understand wanting to still experience/play the mechanics, even though you're not weighed down by needing the money
TheMerricat: So just woke up and caught the latest Checkpoint. I know it was probably mostly a bit, but hoping your vac shot isn't kicking your ass too hard Beej. :)
MTGRanger: Oh does this game also have fully or partially written books and accounts?
Brozard: Congrats on your first vaccine dose!
ThirdFloorDraft: got my shot this afternoon
JadedCynic: yeah, just tired out...immune system flares up and need all your energy :p
PharaohBender27: Cheer300 Congrats on the shot!
ThirdFloorDraft: same experience.... pfizer shot here
MaladyDark: I am excited for my vaccine shot. whenever it might be. Australia has a really slow roll out
CaptainSpam: I just got my second shot today. No ill effects yet, but I'm told things might go icky within 24 hours.
Brozard: @mtgranger I was just looking this game up, and apparently it’s part of a universe that was a competitor of D&D back in the day?
e_bloc: I was lucky I got the J&J a couple months ago and I only felt a little fatigue for a day
plummeting_sloth: All hail Baron... kevin
DarkMorford: I got my first dose of Pfizer yesterday. Shoulder's kinda sore, but that's the only side effect from it.
MTGRanger: @brozard oh was it? Neat! They may have lost, I suppose, but neat
PharaohBender27: @CaptainSpam Yeah, it wasn't bad for me (got my second shot Monday), but definitely wise to prepare for the day after
Arclight_Dynamo: @Brozard More that the author was writing D&D settings, then decided he wanted to turn his stuff into his own universe.
Brozard: Ah
MTGRanger: @arclight_dynamo oh that’s really cool!
johnalogue: @e_bloc I got the JJ maybe a month ago too, felt like a really mild flu-like fatigue for a day
PharaohBender27: @DarkMorford For me, it was a sore arm and my throat feeling a bit off
plummeting_sloth: ah, we need some goblin spoor
e_bloc: @johnalogue I had covid two months before so I don't know if it helped but it wasn't too bad. most of my friends who got pfizer had flu-like symptoms for a day or two but that ended quickly
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo and SOME of his players didn't get too 'in-theme when they named their characters Kappa
Brozard: @arclight_dynamo Blame Wikipedia editorializing: “Midkemia was originally created as an alternative to the Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) role-playing game. ”
Arclight_Dynamo: Pffft. :D
Arclight_Dynamo: @Brozard Huuuuh...
TheMerricat: is the name of the series of books that the author wrote setting up this world.
MTGRanger: Wikipediaaaaaaa!
JadedCynic: it was a homebrew
Brozard: That makes more sense
JadedCynic: "D&D rules have always been intended more as 'guidelines'" :D
Arclight_Dynamo: Yeah, that looks like it, actually. He turned his homebrew D&D setting into books.
MTGRanger: That’s pretty cool
ContingentCat: !advice
LRRbot: Remember to carry a green safety mushroom.
hexy_lexy: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 5:18:55. lrrSPOT
MTGRanger: Thanks, lrr bot
PharaohBender27: @e_bloc I had something last summer that tested negative but which most people I've talked to since say probably was Covid, so I do wonder if that contributed to my relatively mild post-shot side effects
MaladyDark: I mean. thomas is a fine fantasy name
drawnbinary: Is this the second or third session? I just woke up and don't know where we are lol
electra310: Is the game reminding us that we have a mission?
Brozard: OK, dipping out for Roommate Anime Night - have a great stream all everaqWave
PharaohBender27: @drawnbinary I think this is the 5th session?
plummeting_sloth: I suspect a SECOND trap north of Krondor
MTGRanger: Have a nice anime night, @brozard
drawnbinary: oh wow I've not looked at the schedule for a little while
e_bloc: @PharaohBender27 I wouldn't be surprised--my friends who have not had covid had much worse symptoms, my wife got two shots of pfizer and never had anything more than body aches for a few hours
Arclight_Dynamo: "Why yes, player, your foolhardy decision *is* one we ought to reward!"
MTGRanger: @arclight_dynamo that is the best way to make games!
MaladyDark: Hateno has to import grain from somewhere
johnalogue: for context, my mild JJ response had no prior COVID infection
PharaohBender27: @e_bloc Of course, it does vary by person (and possibly which vaccine they get) - I have a coworker who almost definitely got it last Spring (she couldn't even get tested because she wasn't in a high-risk group) who got the Moderna shot and described the day after as "a roller coaster"
MaladyDark: and we never see where those melons come from
TheMerricat: "Generally speaking, 200 square feet of garden space per person in your family will allow for a harvest that feeds everyone year-round. So, for an average family of four, plan for an 800 square-foot garden—a plot that is 20 feet by 40 feet in size should do the trick." - so assuming that they are just farming for themselves 'gardens' would be appropriate.
MTGRanger: Everyone’s begging link for some of his grilled salmon and three course salad
SquareDotCube: I mean, at least two settlements are hunter-gatherers, and Gorons subside on rock, so...
MaladyDark: banana farms where?
johnalogue: wait what Zelda game are we talking about with all this resource management and argiculture?
MTGRanger: @johnalogue breath of the wild
plummeting_sloth: you stole a broach from a racoon
johnalogue: it's a broach stump obviously
hexy_lexy: eww, a cheap ass-brooch?! :p
johnalogue: where do you think broaches come from?
TheMerricat: Thing that always got me about Skyrim was how little farming there was and how bogus the farms that were around were.
MTGRanger: Yeah the travelers are neat
MTGRanger: Oh yeah Skyrim farms are weird
ContingentCat: used to be in now it's out
plummeting_sloth: the changed the town name from Tungsten
JadedCynic: oh, Tugsten! Kappa
MaladyDark: breath of the wild suffers by being the first one to have a "realistic" setting, and not limited pathing. Twilight princess had a similar issue but you could kinda see where stuff could be
MaladyDark: skyward sword was just too magic
plummeting_sloth: "Ye Olde Blesse this Messe"
Iam9991000 subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 3 months!

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Iam9991000! (Today's storm count: 103)
MaladyDark: Skyrim's a mess. not enough farms, not enough people.
MTGRanger: It just works
plummeting_sloth: the Ramada Inn and Suite and Gallows
JadedCynic: bit of a dead-end place - people come here, but they don't stay...
MTGRanger: Who could they possibly be hanging?
MaladyDark: the greatest tradeing hub in the land. 2 bars, 4 shops, 1 temple, it's a bit sad really.
MaladyDark: 50% though?
JadedCynic: lrrWOW
MTGRanger: It can be fixed! @maladydark
JadedCynic: @MTGRanger all the corsairs that prey on Krondor's trade?
MTGRanger: @jadedcynic oh are there? I’m not familiar with the setting
corianderd: Show me the money. Show ME the money.... Show me THE money
PharaohBender27: (insert Jerry McGuire meme here(
edgiestick: That's a steal!
Iam9991000: oh good lord
edgiestick: It's repairable already, that is such a deal
JadedCynic: Quirians(Sp?) are a nation of pirates nearby
MaladyDark: now we just need to hope he doesn't grow a second personality
Joda011980: goodmorning everyone
plummeting_sloth: so, when our party eventually gets changed up, can we transfer gear to the new members?
KrumtasticAdventures: I own an original copy of this game, but I’ve never beat it.
KrumtasticAdventures: But I loved the sequel
Arclight_Dynamo: Box with a note, stash the gear?
PharaohBender27: @Joda011980 Wishing you a good morning from a place where it's evening (I'm in the same timezone as the Moonbase)
Negarretep: Locklear's gear gets transferred when you go to chapter 2, but that's the only time.
Krelera88: You can take gear from Loclear and give it to James at the begining of chapter two. I don't QUITE recall how it's done, but you basically find a bag with all of Locky's gear in it
Negarretep: There's a room in the palace that has all of Locky's stuff in it
MTGRanger: Do stores have unlimited stock?
houndofcullin: OH man. Betrayal at Krondor. I have this in my steam library but haven't fired it up yet. I've read the Riftwar Saga a ton of times, though.
houndofcullin: Good stuff.
KrumtasticAdventures: Which book is this based off of?
Krelera88: Right. I couldn't recall if you found a room, or whether it was just there if you tried to re-enter the palace through the sewers. It's been.. almost 20 years since I played this last
charredspark: sweet! i finally showed up for a beej stream
hexy_lexy: ngl, i totally just read "temple of tits"
KeytarCat: Temple of pif
houndofcullin: Krum, if I'm not mistaken it takes place between Raymond Feist's "Riftwar Saga" and "Serpentwar Saga"
ContingentCat: !badadvice
LRRbot: Mutiny! Mutiny!
LunarJade: @KrumtasticAdventures This is novelized in "Krondor: The Betrayal", which was written after this game.
TheMerricat: So appearently while this game wasn't written by the author that created the setting, it is considered cannon and the events from it are included in the Riftwar books as well as a novelization of the game was published.
MTGRanger: Well that’s just neat
KrumtasticAdventures: Ah. I read a bunch of the books in like middle school, but I never finished the whole series
houndofcullin: They're fun
TheMerricat: I'm a bit sad, appearently you can get this and the sequel from GOG for cheap but the second game won't play properly and has a game stopping bug in it that was never fixed.
ContingentCat: aw
houndofcullin: That's a bummer
PharaohBender27: lrrAWW
MaddogM: I thought Feist was involved in the writing. And did write the novelisation
ContingentCat: !findquote bummer
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat There's also a third game. The official sequel was made by a different dev; Sierra made a spiritual seuqel, as well, without the IP.
TheMerricat: @MaddogM I'm only quoting wikipedia so I could be wrong.
ContingentCat: might have been involved like he read drafts and such but not doing any actual writing
houndofcullin: WB
MaladyDark: the Midkemia RPG MMO never got out of the planning face sadly
MaladyDark: phase
JadedCynic: nothing to do with midkemia, but the same game mechanics
JadedCynic: new setting
plummeting_sloth: "Betrayal... so hot right now"
Arclight_Dynamo: The lead dev is also currently doing Betrayal at Krondor: Remastered. It's not a remake of the game, but a reimplementation of the engine.
JadedCynic: ALL the jaggies :D
TheMerricat: "In 1994 Dynamix canceled sequel plans and sold the Riftwar rights back to Raymond Feist due to poor floppy disc sales of Betrayal at Krondor, but after the game's re-release on CD-ROM sold exceptionally well, the company wanted to do a sequel. It thus attempted to create a game which evoked a very similar feel to Betrayal at Krondor without using the same game world.
TheMerricat: "o create the backgrounds, the development team took photos of different landscapes, then touched them up with 3D tools to make them appear like paintings.[3] 7th Level announced their fully licensed sequel to Betrayal at Krondor, Return to Krondor, just a few weeks after Betrayal in Antara was announced."
TheMerricat: "frustrate"? How?
JadedCynic: "well, as long as we're here..."
Arclight_Dynamo: Temple of Tith. Tithyhouse
charredspark: The Tithbernacle
KeytarCat: but money is free, so
MaladyDark: I can hear the greed in your voice :D
xantos69: cheer50 Carry on you wonderful chap. Catch the rest on the VOD.
TheMerricat: 100% they did that intentionally.
charredspark: sweet, sweet capitalism
SnackPak_: dang. mood Beej
Arclight_Dynamo: Oooh, that explains Metroid Prime...
MAPBoardgames: No! I got distracted watching a VoD and I missed the start of Beejtrayal at Krondor.
JadedCynic: MORE
MaladyDark: you can go fight Ganon and then your save will just drop you outside the castle
DeM0nFiRe: I still haven't finished Half Life 2 Episode 2 for this eason
TheMerricat: Know the feeling, back when I was a kid I spent years playing Dungeon Master on the same party, I never finished it because then it'd be over.
Iam9991000: what you want is a remaster
JadedCynic: that was me with the 'gold box' engine from SSI...then they released their dev tools as an adventure construction set...
KeytarCat: The come-down from a good game (or book or ) is a hell of a thing...
Negarretep: Someone is working on a spiritual successor called "Call of Saregnar"
Arclight_Dynamo: Beej, you definitely want to check out the "remaster" the original dev is doing, in that case.
thraximore: LUL
plummeting_sloth: hire the same actors back. I don't want Locklear's hair to remain fabulous
JadedCynic: DING - BULLSEYE Beej!
charredspark: sounds like a community project
Arclight_Dynamo: That's true, yep.
MaelstronSolenor: I would love to see more games like this, never seen anything like these since
ContingentCat: Locky still definitely wearing a wig, but just a bit nicer
electra310: Man, I just checked and The 7th Guest is available on Steam. That game scared the hell out of child me in 1993. Going back to our youth indeed. :D
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, I get what you mean.
JadedCynic: But also you want an 'endless adventure'
MaladyDark: ah yes. the cost benefit of a dev company. devs have to eat. share holders on the other hand can go shove it
MTGRanger: I mean I’d buy that remaster
MAPBoardgames: Betrayal at Antares?
charredspark: savor the universe. each and every quark
TheMerricat: I _did_ enjoy playing the remastered Bard's Tale last year, though I also got pissed all over again about how hostile some of the puzzles were....
Arclight_Dynamo: That is exactly the experience I got when I played Legend of Grimrock, though for Stonekeep instead of Krondor.
JadedCynic: @MAPBoardgames zing :D
iris_of_ether: Grimrock is such a great experience :)
MAPBoardgames: This priest is really into Warhammer
Mysticman89: my process with games is get 100% achivements, and then it feels like its time to put it down and retire it, even if I still enjoy the gameplay loop.
Krelera88: Oh Dear. Beej, I think there are ... like 20 novels that come after this story. Definitely not discouraging you to do it though
djalternative: 20 novels? sounds like a good weekend
MTGRanger: I should look into these novels. Krondor and universe is going on a list
thraximore: Barding positions!
Arclight_Dynamo: Henshin transformation!
hexy_lexy: 1-2-3-4 *plays Opeth*
dangerous_safety: I imagine they just run in chanting "Bard" as Owyn gets in position
p_johnston: they are good books. feist is a fun author and tends to change up the main characters and locations to keep it fresh
thraximore: It's polite to finger new acquaintances
MTGRanger: Where is this game on steam, chat?
thraximore: @MTGRanger it's on
MTGRanger: Oh ok
Arclight_Dynamo: It's also on Steam.
Negarretep: It's also on steam if you prefer, title is Betrayal Collection
Arclight_Dynamo: In both cases, it's bundled, so it might not be under "Betraya at Krondor."
Arclight_Dynamo: *Betrayal
KeytarCat: All three games: Both Betrayal games and both Krondor games
JadedCynic: Yeah, and they config and tweak DOS Box to the best for each game (glares at VAVLe)
MAPBoardgames: South Rocks South West Mountains
dangerous_safety: road till rocks, south, west till mountains
TheMerricat: Oh wait, I was mistaken, the broken game isn't the official sequel to Krondor it's the 'spiritual successor' to Krondor. Betrayal at Antara
thraximore: ouch
dangerous_safety: gorath tanking that whatever it is
Arclight_Dynamo: BTW, would it be helpful to have maps?
Negarretep: Calculated CoolCat
Arclight_Dynamo: NP!
thraximore: Gorath outsmart bullet
electra310: Bark!
Arclight_Dynamo: Please, box...
JadedCynic: WOOF
incredulouspasserby: woof woof
JadedCynic: Warp
DeM0nFiRe: Meow!
TheMerricat: OK I just looked at the character list from the link @Arclight_Dynamo posted and wow that's some Dollar Tree level cosplay going on :D
dangerous_safety: do not bless your armor with a no. 2
MAPBoardgames: This test of combat will begin, does everyone have their #2 blessed armor?
thraximore: The magic repairing chest works again!
TheMerricat: breath
MAPBoardgames: ^
electra310: Oh, yeah! Good one Merricat
DeM0nFiRe: Breath is my guess as well
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat Right? It's great. :D
Goombill: I live in Calgary, there have definitely been summers where I could see my breath.
mtvcdm: Oh, I looked away and missed a puzzle
DeM0nFiRe: Nice
mtvcdm: The puzzles are the easy part really.
The_Ninjurai: Goombill that doesn't sound like summer. That sounds like warmer winter
incredulouspasserby: the armor so nice he went after it twice
TheMerricat: @Arclight_Dynamo I love Pug's "No this isn't a wig, this is my natural hair" look. :D
electra310: Toiletshoe
CaptainSpam: Snowflake?
JadedCynic: I was gonna say 'sunrise' but way too few letters for that
mtvcdm: Tomorrow
thraximore: Really feels like we got some scaling difficulty among these three chests
drawnbinary: snowflake?
TheMerricat: Would a creature in the tropics see a snowflake?
CaptainSpam: Nope, not snowflake. Hm.
JadedCynic: well, that was true as far as we thought...
MAPBoardgames: Bitrhday isn't long enough
The_Ninjurai: Yesterday?
JadedCynic: Yosemite?
JadedCynic: ooo, nice
CaptainSpam: Nice.
MurphEP: Let's go
mtvcdm: Oh man, I had the right idea, went the wrong way
Arclight_Dynamo: Pocket sand! How do we even use those?
MAPBoardgames: I remember yesterday, all my problems seemed so far away.
Rathorius: This looks interesting, is this a dungeon crawler?
Caedynna: i

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, captain_wulf! (Today's storm count: 104)
Caedynna: oops haha
TheMerricat: @Rathorius Old School open world RPG.
Rathorius: Oh, like daggerfall?
JadedCynic: no....*powder* bags, as in, well um...think of pug visiting the turanni's world through the portal being marco polo visiting china...
MaelstronSolenor: not dupping the emerald?
TheMerricat: You got it.
Rathorius: Nice
MaelstronSolenor subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 40 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, MaelstronSolenor! (Today's storm count: 105)
JadedCynic: if we could get a STACK of emeralds, yeah
JadedCynic: PISH, Beej - Gorath did the "Barbarian trap disarm' method :D
dangerous_safety: wasn't that only two chests?
MTGRanger: No that was 3
CaptainSpam: Intrigue! Out of nowhere!
thraximore: Spooky
dangerous_safety: who's ready for Ration Party?
MAPBoardgames: 10 for that? you must be mad!
thraximore: Only just realized that's a human body and not, like, an animal's paw
electra310: That corpse has an amazing sword, someone says eventually
dangerous_safety: I bet they'll be really happy when they wake up...
Sibwow: ok so we arent at kronder yet i assume but have we betrayed anyone?
plummeting_sloth: quick, hit the tuning fork! maybe they'll find it slightly annoying!
Arclight_Dynamo: That there's no walking animation kills me every time. :D
JadedCynic: @Sibwow no, we got betrayed tho
JadedCynic: by a farmer
Sibwow: that counts!
MTGRanger: One thing I never get about video games are the “there are goblins about” type quests when said goblins die after 2 whacks from a short sword, when often there are guards/armed townsfolk who can easily solve the problem if the player could
Arclight_Dynamo: Maybe the player is the only one who can bring themselves to kill them.
MTGRanger: Lol
dangerous_safety: perhaps the gaurds are too lazy and or not getting paid to do it
MTGRanger: Yeah all video game protagonists are all psychopaths
plummeting_sloth: are they now
thraximore: Oh I thought they were just men in tights
MAPBoardgames: Dispair thy Eyes is the first spell Owen gets and is the only one to use in combat.
Arclight_Dynamo: @dangerous_safety "Outside town? That's out of our jurisdiction."
CaptainSpam: Man, Locklear's really XCOMming it up with that 94% accuracy.
JadedCynic: Sleep is a 1st level spell in D&D...
TheMerricat: So I don't know if it was in any other version of D&D but essentially level 0 NPC's in the Red Box version of the game were 1 hp and had the THAC0 of a dead baby. Even level 1 adventurers were considered awesome compared.
MurphEP: Dang, Gorath is a look
MTGRanger: @themerricat yeah I don’t know about other other editions, but in 5e your average commoner is 10s across the board for stats, so just completely average, no buffs to stat rolls
JadedCynic: Back around 2st ed D&D, '0 level humans' weren't much worse than a 1st level fighter - def had better hp than the best of 1st level mages
charredspark: quick, everyone swap clothes
thraximore: Is the powder useful in any way?
Arclight_Dynamo: I can't find anything about how to USE the powder.
MurphEP: Gorath, hold all our things
Negarretep: The powder is op
thraximore: and that's ONE body umbraHype
Arclight_Dynamo: I have found reference to an enemy that is IMMUNE to the powder, so there's a way to use it. Just... no info on its use.
thraximore: oooh
thraximore: best paid goblin in the land
edgiestick: Can't you go into your inventory during combat and use it that way?
Negarretep: You have to open up your inventory in combat at throw it at someone next to you, cc's them for many many rounds
MAPBoardgames: Pocket sand?
TheMerricat: The Powder Bag freezes an enemy (Grief of 1000 Nights)
charredspark: this was previously owned by a powerful wizard named rusty shackleford
MAPBoardgames: Useful for Owen
Arclight_Dynamo: ^ That's a goof point
thraximore: Gives Owyn a bit of a break
Arclight_Dynamo: *good. Bah.
JadedCynic: for when owen doesn't have the stamina to cast blind, or you don't have a spellcaster in the party...
Arclight_Dynamo: Instead of running, pocket sand the enemy.
thraximore: pocket sand, a mage's best friend
TheMerricat: Something called "nighthawks" are immune to the powder and apparently that's important enough to mention it
johnalogue: this sounds 100% like a joke and not a legitimate tactic one would use
greenkingwashere: beeeeeeef
johnalogue: @TheMerricat that's weird, the F-117 is exactly the kind of sophisticated aircraft that's vulnerable to weather and dust
charredspark: balanced, as all cadavers should be
TheMerricat: I like to think that after we repair all of these items and put them back in the bodies that others come by and start wondering if there is some sort of "blacksmith serial killer" going around...
TheMerricat: bad @johnalogue bad.... :D
JadedCynic: "Just like the last bodies - full of arrow wounds, but the armor on them doesn't have holes"
charredspark: this looks like the work of an enemy stand
MTGRanger: “Also we found smithing tools on one corpse”
Rathorius: So, are these characters you made?
TheMerricat: now the characters are pre-generated in this one
TheMerricat: no even
JadedCynic: "Clearly this is the work of some wealthy noble who's gone mad with power and is just having people assassinated and then in some misguided sense of remorse he has the best of armor put on them by his henchmen, to atone for what he's done? To protect them now to make up for attacking them earlier?"
FanboyBryan: boom
JadedCynic: it SHOULD be...
johnalogue: I think so....
djalternative: it isn't unfortunately
Basic_Human_Decency: it's clearly just the merchant caravan killing the nudist colony and dressing up the bodies Kappa
FanboyBryan: ssshhh this is fantasy, anything can happen
edgiestick: As closely as the writing imitates Feist, I don't think he actually wrote it
ProphetOfHumanity: ooh I remember playing this game a long time ago but never finished it
djalternative: it's kinda up to the user and time period but current style guides will tell you to spell it "lead"
johnalogue: They just made that sentence knock-resistant but also much less energy efficient
TheMerricat: @prophetofhumanity that seems to be 80% of chat :D
JadedCynic: @edgiestick yeah, Feist was 'co-writer'...
LightingExpert13: is it shop time? Shop time!
ProphetOfHumanity: every time I played it before I encountered a game crash involving some emeralds and a statue
johnalogue: Baron Troville? Or Baron TROviLLe?! he was a double agent all along
TheMerricat: markup is a bit high there
thraximore: seems like we have a cheapskate on our hands
ProphetOfHumanity: pretty sure that's not a spoiler but sorry if it is
dangerous_safety: highcastle prices
JadedCynic: this dude needs some competition...
MTGRanger: Well, I should go to bed. Good night, everyone!
MAPBoardgames: That's WAY cheaper than you charge to restring a crossbow
LightingExpert13: good night
TheMerricat: night! @mtgranger
dangerous_safety: gnight
LightingExpert13: @dangerous_safety your username made me giggle. Thank you.
johnalogue: delicious corpse rations
thraximore: So many bodies in this kingdom
electra310: bottle
Arclight_Dynamo: Bottle
dangerous_safety: corpse?
JadedCynic: It's a harsh realm
koikingufm: Guitars have heads.
Arclight_Dynamo: Gauntlet?
cartboy1234: sup dog
electra310: Nice
Basic_Human_Decency: ^
Arclight_Dynamo: No scoped! :D
electra310: I'm still standing by toiletshoe. :D
incredulouspasserby: this inventory management is just Towers of Hanoi, geez
dangerous_safety: time to rotate the inventories
hexy_lexy: you get a whetsone by dipping a dry stone in liquid :P
MaelstronSolenor: oh dear, you have to re-enter it?
TheMerricat: @incredulouspasserby tbf it wouldn't be if we weren't minmaxing our skills :D
JadedCynic: cavalry?
CranstonSnord: horseman
thraximore: carriage?
TheDefiledPrince: Horseman
LightingExpert13: ^
JadedCynic: horseman, yeah
TheMerricat: ^
CaptainSpam: Horshers
Arclight_Dynamo: Wow, well done.
Sibwow: elephant
JadedCynic: I'd heard that sort before
Arclight_Dynamo: Horseface is a long nose?
TheDefiledPrince: Horse got a big snmoot
electra310: They don't mention the short nose, I guess

dangerous_safety: maybe a lance. idk
MAPBoardgames: Beej's adventuring party name is the Murderous Menders.
TheMerricat: Man can you imagine you've set up all of these chests full of supplies all around the world and you've come up with all these super hard riddles and you come back and you find out that every single one of them has been looted?
LightingExpert13: chat, why are we leaving stuff on the bodies (other than limited space on members)?
Basic_Human_Decency: breaking into a chest just to repair it's contents Kappa
TheMerricat: @lightingexpert13 That's exactly why we've already got pretty much top-notch equipment
MaelstronSolenor: the gems?
MAPBoardgames: Shells and gems?
electra310: Just taunted the poor guy with it
Arclight_Dynamo: Breaking into a chest to repair its contents is a lot like getting knives at Value Village, sharpening them, and then giving them back.
LightingExpert13: @TheMerricat ah so the stuff we are leaving is weaker equipment?
TheMerricat: @lightingexpert13 yep we are looting mostly for the opportunity to repair the stuff so we can up our repair skill but otherwise don't need it
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo sneaking them back on the shelves
electra310: And apparently the boxes persist, so if we need stuff in the future, the stuff we repaired might still be there
Arclight_Dynamo: Check that map site I linked?
LightingExpert13: @TheMerricat thank you so much for the clarification. This game is very confusing for me.
MAPBoardgames: Is this the first Wolfram? The Alpha, if you will?
JadedCynic: "gee, we made the game too hard - no one can get through things." "Say, what if we put caches of goods around to help?"
incredulouspasserby: with that, I sleep. Good night, all
KeytarCat: @LightingExpert13 you are far from alone LUL this is WEIRD
TheMerricat: night! @incredulouspasserby
MAPBoardgames: G'night!
TheMerricat: to be fair the only weird thing I find about what I've been seeing so far is the fact that stuff persists this is all how these games played back then.
Vector_Zero: @jadedcynic “should we check if this introduces any game breaking bugs?” “Nah, just ship it”
4 raiders from Luminaire_p have joined!
JadedCynic: @Vector_Zero you joke, but...
LightingExpert13: @LightingExpert13 that is great to hear.
Vector_Zero: I’ve said it before - Krondor the way Richard Garfield intended
LightingExpert13: welcome raiders.
Luminaire_p: lumina1Heart
TheMerricat: we are on commercial break but soon we'll be back to looting caches of equipment to repair and carefuly put back in place :)
JadedCynic: @Vector_Zero back when the internet didn't exist effectively, and the idea of delaying a launch to patch something might mean a dev house goes broke (even respectable ones), and then releasing a patch AFTER sale? You'd better have sent in that warranty registration card, so they can mail you the floppy with the patch! LUL
Arclight_Dynamo: I will once again single out Infocom for praise: They *had* QA, and it made all the difference.
electra310: Nah, if that was us, the corpse would have stuff. :D
MAPBoardgames: You can tell that corpse wasn't one Beej left. It doesn't have impeccably repaired equipment still on it.
Oghara: !schedule
LRRbot: Want to know what's coming up? Check out for an interactive schedule, or for a Google Calendar version.
TheMerricat: on the other side of the coin was Microprose, I still remember my brother buying a game called something like Moonbase Commander where the manual literally was describing 90% unimplemented features

mrverbal: Oh, this game has *so much* mostly nothing exploration, and the occasional really important or powerful thing
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat Whoof.
thraximore: blech
JadedCynic: Yeahhhh, that was....kinda infamous
Arclight_Dynamo: God, I just noticed that the trees fade in as you get closer. That's a nice touch.
JadedCynic: I mean, usually a microprose manual would be 1/3 history lesson about 'subject of game' , 1/3 explanation of use, purpose, and technique of 'subject of game' and then finally 1/3 acutally game mechanics :D
Juliamon: Cal-Sydney
Vector_Zero: Can you dupe a glory hand in a glory hole

thraximore: BaB: Better at Barding
LightingExpert13: barding, barding, barding
Arclight_Dynamo: BaaS: Barding as a Service
kat2kool: Always Be Barding
TheMerricat: Ann always be barding
kat2kool: ABB
Basic_Human_Decency: finger them all Kappa
KeytarCat: Alt def for Bard is "to cover meat in bacon"
evilspoons983: "everyone hold still, the PC is here"
JadedCynic: "PC's vision is based on movement - if we stay still, maybe they'll go away..."
Arclight_Dynamo: "Oh, I think we looted that guy's corpse. Sharpened his sword."
thraximore: I doubt her friends would poison her, but you never know
Basic_Human_Decency: always eat food from strangers Kappa
JadedCynic: well, food might spoil from being in excess vOv
MAPBoardgames: They thought about storing it in a locked chest in a field, but those aren't as secure as they used to be.
Arclight_Dynamo: Is there a reason we'd want to do that? Like, mechanically?
CaptainSpam: I get the feeling there's some plot element that might use that?
Arclight_Dynamo: That makes sense.
Rathorius: Nah, poison the next random person we see
Arclight_Dynamo: Odd it has charges, then.
JadedCynic: Well, we don't always play these three characters - maybe a later chapter has a 'less virtuous' party?
CaptainSpam: I mean, it makes sense if we consider it from the perspective of Sierra adventure games, where you take anything that isn't bolted down, then take the bolts. :)
JadedCynic: maybe poisoning the ale of a warlord might prevent a war...
Arclight_Dynamo: Pffft. Mob trash. Kappa
KeytarCat: as long as you sell it in a DIFFERENT TOWN
Rathorius: If a game gives me poison, I gotta poison someone to see what it does
CaptainSpam: You have to have a healthy laugh first before declaring something sucks if you want to do it like Adam. :p
Basic_Human_Decency: oh no the bane of gamers. loose geometry
CaptainSpam: Wait, two bookmarks?
Vector_Zero: Alternatively, break it, repair it, drop it on the ground
MAPBoardgames: We shouldn't. We should be in Krondor at the moment.
TacitusVigil: Well when you put it that way...yes.
LightingExpert13: ever forward, never learning
thraximore: oooh a proper dungeon
JadedCynic: The Shaft™ is a bad dungeon-SHUTYOURMOUTH ... I'm just talking about Shaft™ Kappa
thraximore: a maze? nice
Arclight_Dynamo: First pit!
Basic_Human_Decency: the yawning pit
Arclight_Dynamo: Does the rope not stay with the pit?
Arclight_Dynamo: Whoof.
MAPBoardgames: Pocket sand?
MAPBoardgames: esc?
Arclight_Dynamo: Esc?
LightingExpert13: are these the ogres? If so I expected something different.
LightingExpert13: oh these are trolls. Cool.
evilspoons983: I'm probably not the first person to think this looks like Battle Chess
Rathorius: oh, fast n slow poisons
LightingExpert13: these dudes need an extra dimensional pocket
LightingExpert13: (I know it most likely not in this game)
dangerous_safety: or just a cart
JadedCynic: @evilspoons983 that game was aslo released around the smae time - 91 vs 93
JadedCynic: now the dungeon makes me think of The first TES game....

Arclight_Dynamo: There will 100% be loot down here.
LightingExpert13: is beej Khaleesi now?
ImAlsoNamedBort: Jacket
evilspoons983: the hallway / town gameplay graphics are WAY more advanced what with the 3d, but the combat tweaked something in my brain
CaptainSpam: You infiltrated a wyvern mill scheme!

dangerous_safety: are we still on the first chapter?
Arclight_Dynamo: Sure are!
MAPBoardgames: When Beej does get around to doing the plot he's going to fly through everything since hes already cleared the whole map.
KeytarCat: @MAPBoardgames only cleared the Ch1 map! more stuff awaits after we progress the story!
JadedCynic: And has the best skills and gear
Rathorius: this looks tough
Rathorius: what does the fork do
MAPBoardgames: fireball?
dangerous_safety: that was five guys burgers and trolls
Negarretep: Some wyvern eggs would make for some tasty wyvern omelets
evilspoons983: I like how people just leave stuff everywhere in ornate chests
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah. This is the "there's a dungeon nearby" stash.

Arclight_Dynamo: Yoooooo!
LightingExpert13: oh we got voices working? Rad
TacitusVigil: Bravely ran Sir Robin!
CaptainSpam: Awww yeah.
djalternative: wait for the drop
djalternative: I want this as pirate edm
TacitusVigil: We can now steal the song and claim we wrote it.
Arclight_Dynamo: "We paid for the song, the players WILL hear it. No I don't care."
dangerous_safety: we got barded on
Negarretep: @Arclight_Dynamo interestingly you can only get that event if you come here in chapter 1 which the players are really not expected to do
Rathorius: Cant believe we didnt get the amazon village marked on our map
dangerous_safety: Ooo banger
Arclight_Dynamo: @Negarretep Huuuh. More of a nice bonus, then. Neat!
MAPBoardgames: best price yet
Rathorius: Can we haggle?
Rathorius: This game seems cool, is it difficult to get running?
Arclight_Dynamo: Return to Krondor is available on Steam and GoG, for the same price, but on its own.

SirMorek: I never played these games, but I played Legend of Grimrock which is giving me... reverse nostalgia?
JadedCynic: def releated
Arclight_Dynamo: @SirMorek Oh, you want to check out Stonekeep, in that case, on GoG and maybe Steam? It's basically the game Grimrock is based on.
MAPBoardgames: Yay! more commercials!
SirMorek: @Arclight_Dynamo I'll level with you, I'm not sure i wanted to play *more* grimrock... at least not yet
JadedCynic: okay, it's beyond 'late o'clock' here. I'ma call it a morning, and come back and watch after the 3hr mark...gnite all! o/

Arclight_Dynamo: *English
MAPBoardgames: You can only read this book 97 more times sounds a lot like modern DRM
KeytarCat: @MAPBoardgames Did someone say CAPITALISM
Arclight_Dynamo: @KeytarCat No no no. Feudalism. Kappa
KeytarCat: o my b
Arclight_Dynamo: It *is* interesting that this region *feels* different from the previous region we were in. It's a lot less friendly.
BrindleBoar: poisoned or non-poisoned? Kappa

Arclight_Dynamo: I kind of hope that they used short variables, so 99% and 100% round to the same value in the background. :D
MAPBoardgames: I always found the fastest way to travel is by map.
TacitusVigil: Have we tried "Summon Bigger Fish"?
