PharaohBender27: Hey @hexy_lexy Here's your reminder that you are a bundle of positivity that we appreciate! lrrHEART

Juliamon: International trade: turns out it's complicated as heck!
hexy_lexy: @iris_of_ether AAAAA SUGOI
drawnbinary: What did the UK set up?
PharaohBender27: @hexy_lexy But see, I'm rubber and you're glue, so your compliments bounce off of me and stick back to you! :D
ContingentCat: i'm sure it'll be slightly different in frustrating ways because that's how international trade stuff works
iris_of_ether: @hexy_lexy His name is The Stretch Goal and I love him :D
gualdhar: whodathunk juggling complicated commerce law for over 200 countries was difficult

hexy_lexy: HA!
Juliamon: Chat tried to alert you to it.
chaostreader: ^
PharaohBender27: !chat
LRRbot: Seriously, just never listen to chat.
hexy_lexy: ill brb, gotta continue my tradition of ramen with beejtrayal
Vector_Zero: What’s this “we" beej?
thraximore: ha HA
electra310: Vaguely erotic?
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
iris_of_ether: Definitely vaguely erotic.
thraximore: Did they try... pulling the door? It might not be a push door.
xantos69: Ok, now what?
ContingentCat: it's the kinds of things you might leave behind when moving out though
PharaohBender27: In before the tuning fork proves critical at some future point
e_bloc: Corgo956 is this the opposite of speed-running? because I love this sort of full exploration of a game, especially an old one
PharaohBender27: Or wait, do we know what we need it for already? I only catch these episodes in bits or VODs :p
Arclight_Dynamo: The tuning fork is a fairly common item that scares trolls away so we don't need to fight them.
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Ah
e_bloc: it blows my mind that this game is so old and so extensive
Arclight_Dynamo: @e_bloc Even older PC RPGs along thee lines, like Wizardry or Akalabeth, are big like this. It's a hallmark of the genre.
Arclight_Dynamo: *these lines
PharaohBender27: @e_bloc I had never heard of this before this PiF, and I am legit impressed at the depth and quality of this *1993* game
Arclight_Dynamo: See, I'm an old man, so games from the early 90s being good doesn't blow my mind. It's like people being amazed movies in back and white are good. :D
ritchards: Wolfram and Heart?
keyforgealchemist: wow! I haven't seen this game in decades!
Vector_Zero: Baldurs gate was only 4-5 years later
Arclight_Dynamo: FWIW, the walkthrough I'm looking at has the house you want WEST of Wolfram, not east.
HundreydAundre: Trolls. gawd. That's all they ever do.
Arclight_Dynamo: AH, there ya go.
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Fair. In 1993, computer games for amounted to Wolfenstein 3D, Commander Keen, and stuff like a weird sort of reading comprehension game where you had to defeat a villain who had taken over a school?
JonnyGlitch: Hi Beej! Hi chat!
JonnyGlitch: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 24:01.
PharaohBender27: *for me
Arclight_Dynamo: @PharaohBender27 Ha, yeah, me too, mostly. But also Sierra and LucasArts point and clicks, in my case. So this made sense to me.
asthanius: sex
chaostreader: This is a trading quest?
ghyllnox: Are these pleather pants?
thraximore: whaaaat?
PharaohBender27: katesLol
thraximore: scandalous
Arclight_Dynamo: No one banged until 1978. It was quite the innovation.
asthanius: fresh leather
ContingentCat: Nooo Sex was invented in 1973
Phailhammer: PharaohBender27 I think I recognise your description of that last one, but I thought it was numeracy-based.
serramarkov: They're cannibals!
asthanius: sex was under trademark until recently
ghyllnox: Ah, more like boots
thraximore: The only thing chat can agree on is that it was sometime in the 70s
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, that's it. Sex fell into the public domain in the 70s. It varied by a few years depending on jurisdiction.
hexy_lexy: i have returned with noodz
ContingentCat: there were some events in the early 70s that scholars argue whether or not they quaify, it gets technicl
Phailhammer: PharaohBender27 Wait, never mind. Outnumbered was the TV station, not the school.
asthanius: @hexy_lexy Wanna take that one again?
ContingentCat: *technical
hexy_lexy: @asthanius i said what i said
asthanius: k
xantos69: yea, but they did it anyway.
thraximore: Wedlock was the new thing
thraximore: Ha, you said it first
PharaohBender27: @Phailhammer I do wish I could remember what the heck that game's name was (the one I was talking about, that is)
asthanius: some are one half of the gate, some are the other half
asthanius: i assume
JonnyGlitch: Cain and Abel are technically bastards
DarkMorford: Hi Beej, hi chat
hexy_lexy: hey Morford
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @DarkMorford !
SeismicLawns: hey sara do you want these sex-discarded leggings
punumbral: nice hair
punumbral: love the vids
asthanius: Big Bag O' Grain is 50% off down at the truck stop
mercano82: At least the bag is labled, so you know what's in it.
Arclight_Dynamo: I'm beginning to think this walkthrough might not be laid out the best way possible.
Phailhammer: PharaohBender27 Midnight Rescue?
PharaohBender27: @Phailhammer Let me google that
hexy_lexy: temple of dala? yeah, DALA BILLZ :p
Vector_Zero: It’s a really old walkthrough!
Vector_Zero: Hyperlink technology has advanced!
ContingentCat: it's a really old game so that should be fine
DarkMorford: I remember the Super Solvers games. Good stuff.
PMAvers: Hopefully he didn't lose his old pair of leggings at his wife's sisters house.
asthanius: he's the solider
PharaohBender27: @Phailhammer Holy moly, I believe that's the very one. The name "Morty Maxwell" sure seems familiar.
SkylerRingtail: The cheating spouse version of Cinderella
Psithief_: The leggings only fit people who are out of shape.
HorusFive: susdFS
Phailhammer: PharaohBender27 I remember the robots would scare the crap out of me as a kid. :D
thraximore: Dare you enter my magical realm?
JonnyGlitch: say that again I need a new ringtone
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: maybe "cancel" should receive this blessing
JonnyGlitch: Who's Cancel?
PharaohBender27: @Phailhammer I owe you a debt for answering a question that had occasionally nagged me for quite a while
thraximore: @xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV LUL
Psithief_: cancel huh?
electra310: Risky
ContingentCat: or nobody?
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh! Mark your defence skill, too.
iris_of_ether: @Phailhammer Hey, thanks for the link! I was just thinking about this one game that I have the vaguest sense memory of playing at a friend's house once. I don't think it's this, but I think this will get me in the right direction... :D
DarkMorford: If nobody gets buffed, everybody gets buffed?
JonnyGlitch: 10 to everyone is a net gain
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, good!
JonnyGlitch: sweeet
CaptainSpam: GrainQuest. The unlikely followup to RoadQuest.
DarkMorford: From the people that brought you Road Quest, it's Grain Quest!
Phailhammer: iris_of_ether If it was Super Solvers, but not that one, might have been Outnumbered.
DarkMorford high-fives @CaptainSpam
Phailhammer: PharaohBender27 :D
JonnyGlitch: socks are overrated
CaptainSpam high-fives @DarkMorford
JonnyGlitch: Hi Kramit the Sock!
PharaohBender27: @CaptainSpam @DarkMorford Six comedians from Victoria spend a week harvesting
JonnyGlitch: until you die of old age?
amazingvariable: Beej your hair is getting crazy, haven't stopped in the stream for quite a while. Hope you're well!
JonnyGlitch: dem GAINS
ContingentCat: I feel like it's been working the opposite way in real life
Arclight_Dynamo: Those are toes, Beej.
JonnyGlitch: your foot
iris_of_ether: @Phailhammer It's a similar vintage. I forget the main challenge route, but I do know there was a screen that had 2-3 rows of artifacts that you would collect after each level. There was a mystery involved. And I was *obsessed* about learning it, but I had to get off the computer before getting there
thraximore: splinter? hate those
thraximore: sock splinters, so hard to find and get rid of
xantos69: We believe in your Beej. Fight that sock thing
Djahouty: That's your foot, Beej
hexy_lexy: feet? Kappa
electra310: Be barefoot and free!
JonnyGlitch: *rips it out, holds up bloody big toe*
serramarkov: Oh, I hate getting those!
ContingentCat: why even wear socks inside?
ritchards: @ContingentCat cold feet
hexy_lexy: @ContingentCat cause some peoples feet get cold real quick
chesul: if it's every 30 days then it would be just over 2 stacks per character, right?
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, right, the forever socks.
ContingentCat: @ritchards @hexy_lexy fair, I forget I am a strange gremlin who likes cold feet
PharaohBender27: @Phailhammer Like it had to be that one. Not only did I recognize that villain name but I *specifically* remember a "reading" bit about the villain and his pals at a bowling alley and how they all had names beginning with "m" and a comment on how "m" is the 13th letter of the alphabet, but they bowled well, so maybe 13 isn't so unlucky? (Note: this is all rather vague memories from almost 3 decades ago :p )
Phailhammer: iris_of_ether Doesn't ring a bell, unfortunately.
hexy_lexy: you could grind to max health, but i dont think youve had a problem with combat iirc
PharaohBender27: And hoo boy that took up a lot of space, sorry :p
hexy_lexy: @ContingentCat hey, nothing wrong with that
JonnyGlitch: I like the "All-Day" socks. I can't wear wool socks, they're scratchy and I my feet swear into them
ContingentCat: I've heard a lot of good stuff about darn tough socks
JonnyGlitch: sweat too
JonnyGlitch: but the swearing is unprofessional at work
hexy_lexy: i just like those cheap bag-o-socks. never really been able to afford nice socks
iris_of_ether: @Phailhammer No worries. :) I already had one accidental fever dream rediscovery of an old shareware game, so I figure I'm ahead of the curve on 'surprise here's the game you never could remember'. :D (It was this, for reference: https://lparchive.org/Dare-to-Dream/ )
crowyote: merino is a breed of sheep. XD
mercano82: It's wool from former NFL quarterback Dan Marino.
Phailhammer: PharaohBender27 "Villain taking over a school" took me straight there, even if I did go for the wrong one at first. :D
DarkMorford: Ew.
JonnyGlitch: I hate wool, it's super itchy
crowyote: they're a good wool breed. I used to raise sheep, so.
JonnyGlitch: even the expensive wool I find itchy
Electrodyne: They usually make Isotoner gloves from Marino wool
Arclight_Dynamo: I hear muskox fibre is very nice, too.
crowyote: lanolin, it's the natural oil that comes from sheep and is all in their wool--some people are allergic to it.
DarkMorford: The Sporting News Baseball? lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW
crowyote: it's possible to get wool treated so it doesn't have any lanolin residue, but it's *really* expensive because it's so difficult to get all of it out of the fiber.
Juliamon: My mom has a lanolin allergy, and I just can't abide the texture.
JadedCynic: FREE shipping?!?!?
Arclight_Dynamo: Canadians will drive across the border to shop to avoid shipping costs.
mercano82: My Prime shipping is taking a week these days.
JonnyGlitch: Free Shipping is a new concept in Australia for international orders. Unheard of before Amazon
mercano82: But I can drive to the Darn Tough factory in like 50 minutes, so....
Coyoteofthenine: so you must love the wish app
crowyote: I use lanolin as a moisturizer. it's great stuff, if you aren't allergic to it. XD
RustyPryde: We will have things sent slightly closer to us for free shipping.

JadedCynic: I live on an island so far from the mainland we have our own time zone! It takes a week to send a postcard down the street, so we're used to delays - but FREE??? lrrAWESOME
Djahouty: Newfoundland?

Coyoteofthenine: wow the art looks like kids larping
JadedCynic: @Djahouty yep; seriously, for a time local mail would HAVE to be routed through Montreal :p
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic I'm sorry, WHAT?
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic ...wut.
RustyPryde: Is MTL having another mail strike?
Djahouty: Transit to NFL is a pain to organise
Coyoteofthenine: I love that "He was Alive." like the taco bell happened
Coyoteofthenine: then*
JadedCynic: Dead serious; letter from St. John's, NL had to be routed through the Montreal sorting office to be delivered to an address...to St. John's - it was only like a 6 month period when the regional sorting office had had a fire, and it was the only sorting facility on the island...and all the sorting offices in the maritimes were at capacity already... :p
JadedCynic: oh wait, Patrice...oh my
Vector_Zero: Is that Belnan Lornweaver?
JadedCynic: to Northwarden!
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic OK. Still bonkers, but not quite *as* bonkers as I was first imagining (i.e. this was a years-long thing because of some sort of regulation or way the Canadian postal service functioned
JadedCynic: the entire province only has ONE postal sorting office :)
Djahouty: Even Labrador?
JadedCynic: yep
Djahouty: GG
JadedCynic: for a total of 500k people, it handles the volume fine...but if things go wrong, there's no backups
PMAvers: There's some weird mail routing stuff around here, where it arrives at a place like 20 miles down the road, then has to bounce out of the state, and then back into the state to my local office.
PharaohBender27 appreciates what @Djahouty did there
JonnyGlitch: That barmaid hates her life rn
JonnyGlitch: like the drunk that keeps asking the same question over and over
JadedCynic: better organization <3
Djahouty: @JadedCynic Still weird that they'd go through Montreal. Wouldn't NE or PEI make more sense?
Djahouty: @PharaohBender27 /bow
serramarkov: G'night all, have fun playing, watching and chatting, stay safe and well, sweet dreams when you sleep!
JadedCynic: @Djahouty montreal's office had the spare capacity - NS, NB & PEI were all busy
Djahouty: Fair enough
JadedCynic: but two weeks to get your hydro bill, e.g.
ContingentCat: @JadedCynic damn the whole maritimes were full? was this around christmas?
Djahouty: Also noticed I used the French NE. Sorry about that
Djahouty: @JadedCynic Again, gg
JadedCynic: it did roll over a holiday period, yeah, xmas presents sucked that year :)
Arclight_Dynamo: @Djahouty I was going to ask about that. :D
JadedCynic: worst part was late receipt of monthly bills (this was pre- 'online banking' etc)
Djahouty: @Arclight_Dynamo NE=NS lol
Arclight_Dynamo: @Arclight_Dynamo Oui, je sais. :p
Djahouty: =)
JadedCynic: I mean, heck, Maine's USPS offices probably had some better capacity, but...well... :D
LurkerSpine: Hello everyone! Have we got to Krondor yet?
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic Yeah, but then there'd be international postage charges, wouldn't there?
JadedCynic: @LurkerSpine yep; got the assassin attack Prince Arutha (or Gorath, it's not clear), Locky got reassigned, and then we got a diff Siegeur (sp?) James to join us
mrverbal: yea, hounds sounds right
LurkerSpine: awesome, thanks @JadedCynic
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 well, if it's INTENDED to go from a town to the same town, the fact that the postal service needs to send it to a different nation for assistance in routing isn't the sender's fault, so vOv But then, there IS the added hassle of passing through Customs TWICE...prob no faster :\
JadedCynic: and we have the flexibility to do so
djalternative: just in case the ghosts haunt our save
ghyllnox: Mic 5
JadedCynic: enjoy break - check meds, ;get a drink, return a drink' even just stand up and stretch a little :)
djalternative: the hot mic is very much on purpose during beejtrayal
JonnyGlitch: Oh I love this tune XD
JonnyGlitch: We can hear youuuuuuu
Djahouty: I hear a Heather
PharaohBender27: Secret lrrHEATHER podcast?
e_bloc: Mic 5
ContingentCat: Hi Heather
JonnyGlitch: DJ Hodor in the HOUUUUSE
ghyllnox: lrrHEATHER lrrHEART
rhapsodyblue92: MIC 5
JadedCynic: ghost heather not being deliberate ghost heather
JonnyGlitch: well, in her house
NonjaBiru: lrrSPOOP cast!
Phailhammer: Of course he did, how else would we get a secret podcast? :P
hexy_lexy: yay

iris_of_ether: lrrAWESOME
TheExactSame: I hear the bubbles
JadedCynic strains hearing
CaptainSpam: Ah, yes, Radio Hot Tub.
PharaohBender27: katesLol
Juliamon: burble burble
PMAvers: I mean, Hot Tub Feed Dump really predated this whole trend didn't it?
iris_of_ether: *blorp blorp*
JadedCynic: I close my eyes and visualize a hot tub and just relax.....
ghyllnox: "I don't know what a hot tub sounds like" says Heather, from her hot tub
mrverbal: good old beejtub
Djahouty: That was awesome
JonnyGlitch: Hot Tub Pokemon sounds like a crossover porn parody
JadedCynic: the pump does
ContingentCat: it's just a matter of time until there's a pokemon for every noun
TheExactSame: they blurble
JonnyGlitch: They purr if you treat them right
Styxseus: Aquarium noises?
JonnyGlitch: burble... BURBLE
JonnyGlitch: buuuuuuurrrrrrbbblllleeeee
Coyoteofthenine: they sound like a huge pot of boiling water you cook people in
JadedCynic: that said if you've got the hot tub installed right, the pump is sound-insulated from the tub itself and you wouldn't easily hear the heavy purr while parboiling yourself
ContingentCat: it not perfect system?
ritchards: no, you can only select one tier

Arclight_Dynamo: Uh.
ContingentCat: whoops
CaptainSpam: Flawless masterpiece. :p
kaziel0: Oh wow... I've seen bits about this game, but I'd not watched. Now that I'm looking at the screen, I vaguely remember this game from the forever-ago-times.
JadedCynic: you've worn it long enough that the effects bleed off into you, for a while at least, maybe it'll disappear after a couple of days?
jibkat: OH WAIT, I REMEMBER PLAYING THIS NEW
kaziel0: I was in middle school.
JadedCynic: oh well, guess the duration was still....HEY, no need to be MEAN< Beej :p
LurkerSpine: I did not play this, but I am still old
jibkat: *gestures at self* is this old?
Arclight_Dynamo: CD wad '94 according to Wiki.
Arclight_Dynamo: *was
PharaohBender27: Please, we're middle-aged lrrBEEJ
ContingentCat: wow I was 2
iris_of_ether: I got a cheap copy with some purchase and failed to get it to work!
mrverbal: yea I played tis in year 9 i think
Djahouty: I own it, on floppy...
kaziel0: Time to go back and watch all of this on the VODs.
jibkat: PharaohBender27 im over the hill thank you
Coyoteofthenine: Watching LLR is one of the few things that doesn't make me feel old
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 screw that, I'm *OLD* - I get aches and pains that will tell me whether it's raining before I even get out of bed. :P
jibkat: Speak for yourself Coyoteofthenine
JadedCynic: @Coyoteofthenine yeah....weird that, but it DOES work
PharaohBender27: @Djahouty Do you still have some way to actually *use* that floppy? :p
jibkat: I have a 1 part: are you old question
Djahouty: @JadedCynic That's just living in the Maritimes
jibkat: 1: do you make a noise when you stand up or sit down from the floor?
mrverbal: love that the centaur in hercules was jimmy olsen on a horse
jibkat: If yes, you are old
Djahouty: Sadly no.
CaptainSpam: Dead-stare them in the eye as you sharpen your own sword in the shop.
JadedCynic: @Djahouty heck, arthritis is endemic to Newfoundland from the relatively closed gene pool :D
JadedCynic: 49!
TheMerricat: I'm 46 and I still have an issue trying to realize that I'm not in my teens.
Coyoteofthenine: I can't get on and off the floor anymore
SkylerRingtail: Hitting the big 3-0 next year x.x
Arclight_Dynamo: "I'm a child, but with money now!" Kappa
Djahouty: But this stream makes me want to find a floppy drive
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat yeah....at least the delusion doesn't last too long...
Coyoteofthenine: Grey hairs
CaptainSpam: Turns out the 17776 future was the right one and we're all about to be in an endless immortal hell of football. Kappa

PharaohBender27: The way I like to think of it is, "We're older than we were, and younger than we'll be" :)
Coyoteofthenine: I have no idea how I got to 41
hexy_lexy: how long were we waiting for Gabot? :p
TheMerricat: @JadedCynic I can tell you when I yeeted myself down the stairs and broke my foot I realized my age suddenly, but really... other than that. Helps to be a misanthrope and hermit, no one else around to remind you of your age :P
JadedCynic: @hexy_lexy heh, we had HIM waiting on US :D
Arclight_Dynamo: WOW
RvLeshrac: @TheMerricat The only problem is, no one around when you, like, need surgery.
PharaohBender27: lrrWOW
CaptainSpam: I swear the writing in this game is so good.
JadedCynic: My wife is older than I, and she's lucky that her hair is still dark chestnut; I've been going grey for decades :D
JadedCynic: lrrWOW
Coyoteofthenine: @TheMerricat I got dragged behind my car for about 8 feet yesterday I have been limpimg around like I'm 80
TheMerricat: @RvLeshrac trust me I realized that as I was sitting on the stairs trying to figure out how to deal with my foot. :P Luckily Uber drivers know where the hospital is :)
Arclight_Dynamo: So... and I'll regret asking this... how does the government system work, here? Is Prince Arutha not in charge of this entire realm? Is there a king? Where's he at?
thraximore: I assume it's pronounced "gabboe"
TheMerricat: @Coyoteofthenine yikes. Yeah that'd do it. hope you feel better soon.
RvLeshrac: I remember a dentist wanting to give me anaesthetic for a deep-cleaning, and he refused to do it at all when he found out I live in an apartment that requires I walk a few stairs.
RvLeshrac: "Guess I'll... move?"
PharaohBender27: @Coyoteofthenine Ooof. Best wishes for your recovery
Coyoteofthenine: @TheMerricat My wife helps out a lot I am so lucky to have a great partner
hexy_lexy: i assume "Guh-Boe" kinda like Godot, hence why i made the joke earlier
Coyoteofthenine: @PharaohBender27 Ty
Arclight_Dynamo: Welp. Feudalism is confusing and messy. Right. Par for the course.
jibkat: Border nobles tend to get to have their own control
inconsideratehat: oh I:m in the SCA! :D
hexy_lexy: @inconsideratehat same!
TheMerricat: @RvLeshrac Yeah, the ER let me go home after looking at my foot and dressing it but the podiadrist was livid once he saw my foot three days later and they definately weren't going to let me go home after the surgery to put the bones back inside the foot till I called my parents down from three hours away to watch over me
Krelera88: Lyam rules in Rillanon(sp).
RvLeshrac: "The Upright Man" is a good title.
jibkat: example
Molladia: What's SCA?
Molladia: Strata Council?
hexy_lexy: @Molladia Society for Creative Anachronism
jibkat: SCA is the ren fair type crowd
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, god, if your Strata Council was run on feudal lines, you'd be hosed.
mrverbal: the society of consenting adults?
jibkat: google it if you wana know more and find out where you can drink mead with wenches
TheMerricat: Society for Creative Anachronism they are essentially the folk between renaissance faires and HEMA folk
RvLeshrac: @TheMerricat My parents have jobs, so that wouldn't work for me.
inconsideratehat: less Ren faire, more interested in sharing the results of our research. SCA.org
jibkat: Go to SCA events if you want to get drunk and meet chicks
jibkat: Warning SCA people tend to be "horse girls"
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo "Look, you failed to give me a portion of your vegetable garden's crop this summer, so your house is forfeit."
Arclight_Dynamo: This baron is a dong.
Arclight_Dynamo: @Phailhammer WHOOF
TheMerricat: To be fair @Arclight_Dynamo the moredhel aren't suppose to be great folk, essentially devil woreshipers.
JadedCynic: @RvLeshrac yeah, either the irony of the guildmaster of the largest thieves' guild...OR that that guildmaster IS an honorable person that mitigates his charges' effects (one reason he's successful and STILL around)
RvLeshrac: What's wrong with ironmouseSATANAS ?
TheMerricat: where the devil is a group of god-like folk who want to erase the world.
Molladia: The voices and visuals make me tempted to play Return to Zork
JadedCynic: yeah, 'strung' is past tense...calm down Feist ;)
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Take it that "WHOOF" was actually directed at my post? :p
Mollylele: You mean to tell me this whole time I've been learning music, I could've been learning the sword?
Arclight_Dynamo: @PharaohBender27 Ah, dink, yes. :D
JonnyGlitch: isn't coronent a bird?
crowyote: cormorant XD
Djahouty: Cormorant
LurkerSpine: cromulent?
JonnyGlitch: Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: Yeah, this is deffo before the modern scales.
JadedCynic: coronet e.g.
shurtal: I love coronets
ContingentCat: yup
PharaohBender27 sees whar @LurkerSpine did there
JadedCynic: yeah, cornea is the 'crown around the pupil'
PharaohBender27: *what
Djahouty: Anyone old enough to have played scaled in an Ultima game?
JadedCynic: I guess Feist is just giving depth to his world?
Molladia: Go grab your guitar Beej and see if you can do it?
JadedCynic: @Djahouty oh wow, yeah - give me nostalgia
Djahouty: I'm getting Stones vibes
TheMerricat: I love that the game goes into this trivia but I sure sure sure hope they never expect us to know it.
Mollylele: Corona is major and abdicate is minor?
JadedCynic: yeah 'coronant' is probably ...sharp? and 'abdicant' is flat?
djalternative: oh hai molly

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, I_Am_Clockwork! (Today's storm count: 81)
JadedCynic: yeah, major key and minor key! That's what I'm thinking of
JadedCynic: thank you molly!
TheMerricat: I did a quick google search to see if there was any actual music related references to coronant and couldn't find anyhting, the word itself is just a reference to crowns.
JadedCynic: yeah, those terms seem like just Feist making 'worldbuilding' parallel terms to IRL stuff
djalternative: gah! one off
Mollylele: almost nice
9 raiders from Foxmar320 have joined!
Arclight_Dynamo: Well, Professor Google tells me lutes used the "church modes" rather than modern scales. Aeolian, Ionian, etc.
Foxmar320: foxmarLOVE foxmarLOVE foxmarLOVE
TacitusVigil: foxmarLOVE foxmarLOVE foxmarLOVE
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, raiders!
ContingentCat: Welcome Foxmar et al
JadedCynic: ???
JadedCynic: that seems like a bug - wrong convo started based on not remembering our previous choices? or did they just not bother?
TacitusVigil: "I shall teach you this ballad I wrote last week which I entitle...'All Star.' "
ContingentCat: hey now
Molladia: don't dream it's over
Djahouty: You're an all-star
LightingExpert13: hello ContigentCat
LurkerSpine: get your game on
TheMerricat: I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed?
TheMerricat: :p
RvLeshrac: Unfortunately, the CD-Audio for the lute is uninteresting compared to the MIDI.
Djahouty: I'm not sharp, the band is flat
Arclight_Dynamo: But this is... an eight-string lute?
TheMerricat: Details @Arclight_Dynamo Details.
Mollylele: this is a guitar is what he is describing
JadedCynic: We've known each other for so long
RvLeshrac: 8-string lutes are a thing.
JadedCynic: yay! we make progress!
chaostreader: Look. This is a fantasy world. Lutes are just guitars here.
TheMerricat: For not showing us anything that was a god teir lesson
TheMerricat: tier even
Arclight_Dynamo: Just erode that lute into a nub.
Djahouty: Lutes evolved into guitars so it scans
TacitusVigil: Worf: Can I see that Lute?
JadedCynic: these specific types of lutes in midkemia are analogous to IRW guitars. vOv
Mollylele: "Aware that his smallest mistakes were the cause of great grief to others"
Mollylele: that's a mood
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat no kidding - imagine how seriously he takes his formal lessons!
herrahidalgo: Medieval stringed instruments were cool. Theorbo was a lute with a really long neck. And hurdy-gurdies
Djahouty: Dooo EEET
TacitusVigil: Barding at 100%. James has unlocked "The Cha Cha Slide"
jibkat: Shut the front door, is that the Molly-type Molly
PharaohBender27: Congratulations, James, you are now an expert bard
Electrodyne: good job James
Djahouty: Hey guys, here's This Kingdom Mine
Mollylele: i'm So Excited I got here in time for Bard Day
chaostreader: Do we need to pick up the Knight’s piece soon?
jibkat: Sidenote: I very much enjoyed the The Panalysts and they helped me endure this long month of march Mollylele
CaptainSpam: Cavall Keep? Is that where Randall Keith lives?
Mollylele: now that everyone is at 100% bard, can you play Giant steps?
CaptainSpam: At 100%, everyone can play Stairway.
jibkat: Everyone knows peak bard is playing Wonderall

Djahouty: Remembering Wayne's world
Arclight_Dynamo: "Yeah... but I'd rather play Betrayal at Krondor."
djalternative: @Mollylele I was trying to convince my sister to write her senior final for choir on Giant Steps
Djahouty: @Arclight_Dynamo Same
PharaohBender27: Yeah, that's why I quit violin after 6ht grade - I wasn't willing to put in the full work needed
ContingentCat: oh the number of times I've heard "you could be a lot better if you just tried harder" but being lazy is easier
Sappo569: there is a very fine line between 'i enjoy this because i am good at it' and 'if you just practice and study alot you will be really good'
Sappo569: the 2nd option sometimes takes all the fun out of it, and makes it not worth doing anymore usually
LightingExpert13: my gosh my violin teachers were terrible. It is hard for me to do simple things so taking me out of class to do a violin lesson was not good.
Mollylele: I never actually saw my piano Teacher touch the piano
Sappo569: i also had a similiar circumstance, i played in a brass band and a small quartet, and had private lessons, but being pushed to 'be better' just made me not want to do it anymore, sucked all the fun out of it for me
Djahouty: @Mollylele That's sad but then I married my piano teacher
djalternative: @Mollylele there's a restraining order preventing that
JadedCynic: yeah, my creativity and 'talent' in things was really kinda killed by society's 'mediocrity is sufficient' mentality
PharaohBender27: @LightingExpert13 I've seen videos of the recitals I and my fellow music students did at that time, and I'm pretty sure they'd qualify as torture under the Geneva Convention :p
JadedCynic: "you could be better if you applied yourself harder"...meanwhile the aphorism 'the tallest blade of grass is the first cut' also came into effect, so I gave up on music, but I can fiddle with a handful of instruments, and I'm told I'm a decent singer...
LightingExpert13: @LightingExpert13 :D so true. I want to get better now but I am even embarrassed to play in my own house.

Djahouty: @JadedCynic Normandy?
ContingentCat: escher3MEOW
PharaohBender27: Fun fact: The last recital I was part of, I spent my whole time waiting holding my violin in such a way it made it *horribly* out of tune (i.e. I was pressing down on some strings with my fingers), which I realized only once I was on stage. So I just tried to "pretend play" the violin, and holy moly it's SO painfully obvious in the footage
JadedCynic: matt's playing Mass Effect
Djahouty: Ah
djalternative: yeah. I love that vox vid
ContingentCat: Earworm is a good series, I think they're making more soon
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, Chatt!
JadedCynic: ahhhh
djalternative: @LoadingReadyRun I love that you can hear his band mates fail to keep up in that first recording
JadedCynic: you have to know how the 'rules' for something work before you can 'break those rules' in the right way
jibkat: Spidercasters
JadedCynic: okay...this...this is serious
HundreydAundre: Strange. I got the sense from some that Music/Color Theory don't really mix...??
JadedCynic: logically it means that the spellcasters can CONTROL the spiders? worrying
Juliamon: Sometimes I wonder if I could have been good at an instrument if I hadn't been forced into flute when I couldn't get sound out of any brass or reed mouthpieces on the first try.
jibkat: Blind a spider, so many eyes to poke out
TheMerricat: So I've never played Betrayal, but man I love that you can navigate ON the 'map' instead of having to swap back and forth between the 1st person view and the map.
Shigamori: I missed last stream, what happened to the other guy that was in James's spot?
drawnbinary: that's a lot of eyes to despair
HundreydAundre: Or was that something I forgot I'd been looking into. A relativity between Tune & Tones?
chaostreader: And Pocket sand!
TheMerricat: @Shigamori He left during the chapter change. Assigned to another job.
DainBread: I HEARD THERE WAS A BEEJTRAYAL!
PharaohBender27: katesDance
PharaohBender27: @Shigamori IIRC, he had to stay behind in Krondor?
djalternative: @Juliamon I will say, as someone who can play several instruments fairly well, there's definitely transferable skills between many of them if you ever want to pick one back up
Djahouty: This makes me want to replay this or Lands of Lore
Juliamon: djalternative Probably not 20 years out though.
SkylerRingtail: Just quietly hanging out here, listening to Beej story time. Gonna head to bed soon.
Djahouty: Also I feel old
PharaohBender27: @Shigamori Or what @TheMerricat said :p
djalternative: @Juliamon you'd be surprised.
drawnbinary: I'm so glad this is at a convenient time for Australia because I caught the first session and got invested
JadedCynic: Oh wow, Lands of Lore, another game Patrick Steward did voice work for...before Elder Scrolls
Juliamon: I can't even read sheet music anymore.
Djahouty: Anymore?
DainBread: Super inconvenient time for EST... but had to at least pop in for a bit. :)
edgiestick: See, a real rogue would have sold the fact ones around
edgiestick: fake
Arclight_Dynamo: @Juliamon I'm sure it would come back real quick.
Mollylele: I sucked at three different instruments before being OK at ukulele. The skills are cumulative
ContingentCat: I kindof wish I stuck with learning an instrument but neither of my parents do so they didn't push me, and my school's music teacher really didn't care, almost all of the flute players just pretended and she never said anything
jibkat: Can you dodge a book?
TheMerricat: Essentially Locklear's job was to get Gorath to the Prince, after that he had 'more important' stuff to do, investigating the stuff that he was originally investigating before Gorath showed up
TheMerricat: I'm fairly certain we'll bump into him later on..
djalternative: @Mollylele yeah. knowing violin helped a whole lot when I first picked up guitar
Djahouty: @Mollylele You rock at ukulele so you were really decent at the other 3?
Juliamon: ContingentCat Same situation here kinda. I was the only flute that actually *tried* because I was too afraid of getting caught faking it
djalternative: @ContingentCat My parents were def the opposite. Me and my siblings can each play a minimum of 3 instruments
SquareDotCube: Has she tried selling them by the seashore?

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Xenguin47! (Today's storm count: 84)
JadedCynic: yeah, if there's no demand for it, why would you hold a supply?
ContingentCat: @Juliamon in my class there was 5 flute players in front of like 20 clarinets so I was convinced we wouldn't be heard anyways
Juliamon: I was jealous when my sister got assigned clarinet because it's what I wanted to play. She didn't. But you aren't allowed to say much about your preference when you're assigned a very expensive instrument to care for against your will.
Molladia: as a mid 30's I think my wife would kill me if I took up the trombone again
iris_of_ether: Vibraphone is very pretty :)
CaptainSpam: My dad and my brother were the musicians of the family growing up. I never was; I just kinda bumbled into drawing comics.
TheMerricat: On one side I'm a bit envious of Beej and the folk in chat talking about their music learnings history, on the other hand, given the shit I had going on as a kid I'm super glad I didn't have to deal with learning music on top of it all.
Juliamon: I wanted to try drums but only one person got to be percussion and I wasn't loud enough to get that honor
Juliamon: and we didn't have any strings
Juliamon: you basically had to choose flute/clarinet/alto sax/trumpet/trombone
djalternative: strings are def the class on instruments that have the most transferable skills between eachother
djalternative: class of*
iris_of_ether: @Juliamon That's unfortunate. We had several people in our percussion section :/
LightingExpert13: @Juliamon they told when choosing that i would be create a clarinet. Now I am thinking of going back to it and play again.
TheBearBee: I'm just imagining Derrick from QWRP on a bus trying to talk to this girl
TheMerricat: lol @TheBearBee
chaostreader: Derrick is out of high school.
Juliamon: and by "choose" I refer again to one day in 5th grade where they brought in mouthpieces and had you try each of them and whichever you sucked the least at was what you got to play in middle school
iris_of_ether: My 7th/8th grade teacher needed someone to learn to play tympani, and I was the only one taking private lessons. So I did. And then I rabidly claimed them at all possible opportunities after. (I did share, though.)
TacitusVigil: Four young people with attitude!
JadedCynic: non sequitur - the sfx for 'birds singing' while you're outside, reminds me of the whistling & cheering of an old baseball game I played :D
djalternative: the main reason I stopped playing violin was being unable to grasp the hand movement required to do vibratto
Juliamon: Guitar always seemed so nice but we didn't have that kind of money
chaostreader: @djalternative I’m here to tell you that vibratto is completely unnecessary.
PharaohBender27: I feel like other than laziness, my issue is that I have what a Futurama episode aptly called "stupid hands" - I wasn't good at doing the necessary finger movements for either violin or piano (which I tried on my own briefly) in a good, fluid motion. Hell, I never have really gotten into doing the 10-finger typing thing, despite lessons - I just do a sort of advanced hunt and peck method :p
ContingentCat: there are worse things to do to try to get populr
Arclight_Dynamo: You showed up at Desert Bus and performed with your guitar. That led to to join LRR. I think learning guitar worked out pretty good for you.
ContingentCat: *popular
Arclight_Dynamo: *you to
djalternative: @chaostreader not according to my orchestra teacher/leader who was in charge of my grade at the time. good to know I can go back to it with confidence though
Djahouty: @Arclight_Dynamo Agreed
PharaohBender27: katesLol
Juliamon: and now here I am, I can't play anything and I don't think my fingers would allow me to anyway.
iris_of_ether: Derek does have accidental game :D
TacitusVigil: Man, I wish I was pleasant. :(
TacitusVigil: Oh well, I have the other half.
JadedCynic: yeah, that was actually the issue with me vs. violin lessons; you can't sing and play a violin properly...I ended up taking singing lessons tho
ContingentCat: right Derrik is "surprisingly ripped"
crowyote: tbh it's kind of creepy for me the way so many young adult stories have kids hooking up in high school and then THEY ARE TOGETHER FOREVER
Arclight_Dynamo: "See that guy in the back? No, way in the back. Shovelling horse crap. Yeah, that's you."
Mollylele: are there Joseph Campbell kids books?
ghyllnox: And if you want to be with another princess that's okay
djalternative: oh right. I just remembered I did play xylophone for a short time. that was fun
HundreydAundre: That.... will not go; the way you think, child.
TheBearBee: "A pleasant idiot" that's something you hope gets on your wiki page
TheBearBee: or Linkdin
crowyote: and that's a "happy ending." if I'd stayed with the person I dated in high school I would be, at best, miserable now. :P
PharaohBender27: Yeah. Fairy-tale romance stories actually are fucking toxic in the message they convey, and I know that from experience.
DainBread: Whatever game I'm a part of, I'm the NPC that wanders in a circle around the fence of the town for some reason spouting the single line I know how to say.
JadedCynic: @crowyote that was the culture and tradition - the stories were just reinforcing the status quo :\
TacitusVigil: Is it real gold or metaphorical gold?
crowyote: fortunately my mother was divorced, and I lived with her, my divorced aunt, and my widowed grandmother, and between all of them they gave me a *much* more realistic idea of relationships. XD
Juliamon: I wish there was more than one Disney princess movie where it was OK to just not get together with anybody
JadedCynic: as one of the many 'banner not-ad's of the webcomic Oglaf says "a fairytale ending is really BAD for about half the characters..."
DainBread: Audible SLAAAAAAAM!
CoffeeCatRailway: Hado beej!
crowyote: @JadedCynic yep that. Oglaf is such a great comic. XD
Juliamon: (but that would require mainstream recognizing aro/ace as a thing, so.... yeah)
JadedCynic: @Juliamon agreed - just happy and successful on their own
TheBearBee: Do a poop
Mollylele: tune your lutes
iris_of_ether: My first brief dating experience *was* 6th grade, though. Just imagine the most awkward mix of attempting to buy Magic cards when they were still sold out everywhere, and also watching the Worst Movie of 1995 on pure accident.
TacitusVigil: Emails! James! Kelsey Grammer!
LightingExpert13: @Juliamon there's moana, frozen,...
TheMerricat: Chat am I motivated enough to make some TVP taco meat and have tacos? I feel the craving but it's midnight....
aussie_rob_w: @iris_of_ether what was the worst movie?
PharaohBender27: @iris_of_ether OOOOOF
Juliamon: LightingExpert13 Frozen does not count, there's romance in there
crowyote: it's not even an aro/ace thing, just--the idea that female characters can have a happy ending where they *don't* end up getting hitched is so foreign, because what are women for other than romance object, right? >______<
iris_of_ether: @aussie_rob_w Congo. :D
djalternative: and remember that fam jam starts bright and early tomorrow
JadedCynic: oh HELL, I just saw the email notification for the stream - dammit Beej! lrrBEEJ
Juliamon: I have Moana and that's basically it.
TacitusVigil: @TheMerricat Pfft, Midnight in *your* time...you know what time it is in other parts of the world? Taco Time.
TheDailyMapleSyrup: strum your keyboards and tap your lutes
JadedCynic: @Djahouty *laughs in GMT - 3.5h
TheMerricat: LOL @iris_of_ether you do realize It's Pat and Waterworld also came out that year, I think you dodged a small bullet there. but yeah.... woof. :)
crowyote: that new one, Rrrrrr...what's-her-name and the Dragon.
LightingExpert13: @Juliamon alright. Do we have to be specific to princess? Also Raya.
crowyote: Raya, yeah.
PharaohBender27: lrrSPOOP_HF lrrHEATHER lrrSPOOP time?
chaostreader: @juliamon Brave?
eDRoaCH: what no podcast?
Juliamon: Brave is... Brave has its own issues
TheMerricat: I haven't watched past the first Frozen movie, please tell me they are still single in that one....
Arclight_Dynamo: We are not entitled to a podcast. A podcast *may* be bestowed upon us, if we are lucky.
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo Hello.
iris_of_ether: @TheMerricat Yeah, I just noticed it. I could *swear* that I saw it as #1 on some bad movie list. But yeah, it was Not Good. And also we didn't look up movie times (because pre-internet), so I watched the second half, THEN the first half.
chaostreader: @juliamon Yes. But a relationship isn’t one of them.
eDRoaCH: woo
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil Oh, hey there!
Izandai: PrideLaugh
PharaohBender27: lunarj1Heart

ghyllnox: Ty podcast ghost lrrHEART lrrHEATHER lrrHEART
LightingExpert13: thank you for the secret podcast
JadedCynic: @iris_of_ether @TheMerricat oof - the only good thing about that film was Tim Curry's supporting role...
Nuurgle: what's it about?
LightingExpert13: crash is hard mode.
CaptainSpam: It's not an easy series, as I've heard.
ritchards: could be worse... could be first person 3d platforming!
Mollylele: there's a podcast ghost in this stream
TacitusVigil: The movie Crash? I've had to watch that 2 times. Which is 3 too many.
Juliamon: All I remember about when Brave came out was people declaring Merida a lesbian for not being interested in her assigned suitors, like that was the only option
Arclight_Dynamo: But landing on the crate and collectibles are the entire point of Crash! :p
JadedCynic: OH YES< Tanya deserves her own game!
TheDailyMapleSyrup: hey Heather lrrHEART
TheMerricat: Graham is disappointed in you Heather. very very disappointed.
Mollylele: @Juliamon people also said Mulan was a lesbian when she & Shang are both OBVIOUSLY bi
iris_of_ether: @JadedCynic And as an MST3K watcher, I am delighted to see that Joe Don Baker had a role, ROFL
BlueChloroplast: @Juliamon :D
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Yet I feel he'd hear the "3-D platformers, ugh" and be, "Yeah, fair"
ContingentCat: the rare time the title character is the cool girl character?
LightingExpert13: should look up old tawnya. Totally not the same.
JadedCynic: main quest? heck with that - lookit all the rich side stories we can spend hundres of hours digging thru!
JadedCynic: SeemsGood
TacitusVigil: @Juliamon Or, OR...maybe all the suitors just suck? (I know, preaching to the choir :D )
ritchards: secret bonus secret podcast!
NicotineRobot: I'm here for this.
TheMerricat: Essentially if you a woman in a Disney property and you haven't hooked up with some blank slate male by the end of the movie, Disney raises the Pride Flag and throws a parade about how progressive they've gotten since Song of the South.
ContingentCat: is Beej crossing animals again?
CaptainSpam: Tawna was... well, from a different universe back then, literally.
aussie_rob_w: katesLurk lrrAWESOME
TacitusVigil: @TheMerricat You just reminded me that next month is Pride Month/Companies Pander Month.
ritchards: Graham played it on stream, didn't he?
NicotineRobot: Are you enjoying the game as is?
JadedCynic: @iris_of_ether yeah JDB was okay, there but I still assert that he was the best part of the Pierce Brosnan Bond Films :D
Juliamon: I want to see a princess that just fakes being cisheteronormative. I don't want another "not like the other princesses." I just want a princess to have an arranged date and be up front with having zero interest in dating or marrying anyone and how bullshit it is that they're *required* to do so in order to hold any sort of position of power
TacitusVigil: Although I'm glad that they're at least pandering in the sense that they think it's worth pandering too.
iris_of_ether: @JadedCynic Clearly I am behind on my JDB filmography :D
PharaohBender27: @ritchards Yep, it was a PiF late last year
djalternative: on the Disney note, did you know that Moana doesn't technically count as a Disney princess because they don't want to make clothing/ costumes modeled after her?
crowyote: opossums are US native!
LightingExpert13: i think the only one in the us is opposums.
Juliamon: I want the prince to feel bad for being roped into a marriage with a cute princess.
Arclight_Dynamo: If you've seen that picture of Australia that is a dog's head and a cat's head, Tasmania is the "food" the cat is eating.
JadedCynic: @JadedCynic he's only in two, but yeah his cia contact character is fun
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo ...what *type* of food? [narrows eyes]
eDRoaCH: <3
ContingentCat: possums and opossums are both marsupials
crowyote: goodbye!
Mollylele: @Juliamon hi this is Mulan. the huns are not the villain in Mulan, you know this because they don't get a song but normative gender performance gets THREE. she literally can't do the thing she wants because cisheteropatriarchy. that's the plot.
Mollylele: HI HEATHER
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil ...uh. Oh! Cat food! There. :D
HundreydAundre: ummmm, sure.....right....
PharaohBender27: lunarj1Heart
HundreydAundre: No lies...
ContingentCat: iirc american possums are the only north american marsupial
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo The good one with the chicken *AND* the tuna?
Eyclonus: @ContingentCat one is cute and the other is a feral hell demon
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil What do you take me for? Of course!
PharaohBender27: OK, it's time I get some sleep. Until later, all!
JadedCynic: dammit guys, it's almost 3am here - stop bringing up food! :D
TacitusVigil: Night Bender.
TehAmelie: the most Heather quote i've heard. "Chat would never lie to me, they know better than that."
iris_of_ether: Goodnight @PharaohBender27 :)
crowyote: opossums are *adorable*, and although they're invasive here in the PNW wildlife conservationists actually *like* them because they plug some holes in the ecosystem that were caused by humans. XD
ghyllnox: I did!
ContingentCat: @Eyclonus oh I know I've seen both
TacitusVigil: Pfft. Don't be a prince OR princess. Down with monarchies!
jmhodges: ❤️❤️❤️
Molladia: lrrHEART lrrBEEEJ
ContingentCat: Or better yet companies other than Disney and have them get popular
Arclight_Dynamo: "No matter your gender, kid, you too can one day grow up to overthrow a monarchy."
djalternative: Down with Monarchies! Up with Communism!
LightingExpert13: is season 2 of the owl house out?
x0den: is season 2 out already?
TheMerricat: I think the most wonderful part about the new SheRa was they did it and they didn't make it a marketing point or act as if it was a huge deal in world, it just happened and people dealt with it
Eyclonus: @LoadingReadyRun Not once do they show the princess getting married to an inbred slob because her father needs more levies to invade Leinster
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo You all want to get on that sooner or later? Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: :p
JadedCynic: oh god yes!
Eyclonus: Anyone seen the new Warhammer+ streaming service, all those warhammer cartoons.... on a new streaming service
aussie_rob_w: Australian Netflix is like that.
JadedCynic: right...any time now
LightingExpert13: time for a vpn?
Arclight_Dynamo: Lupin was pretty good - I had to watch it in French for class. :D
Juliamon: I want more Disney movies with marriages of convenience where both parties are understanding of the situation and give full consent.
HundreydAundre: Soap, your Disney+ is not the "same" Disney+?
JadedCynic: yeah, that first season was FAN-dirtyword-TASTIC
Mollylele: @Juliamon ok when you put it like THAT
Mollylele: I'm on board
NicotineRobot: It sounds like cable with more steps.
aussie_rob_w: Although it means that a BUNCH of stuff shows up on Stan.
ContingentCat: @LightingExpert13 Netflix is good at noticing VPNs I used to use them to watch the West Wing on Netflix
TheMerricat: @Juliamon TBH I just want kid aimed movies that stop acting as if being born of "special blood" was an actual thing.
chaostreader: @hundreydaundre Every streaming service is different in different countries. Pretty much all of them.
Arclight_Dynamo: "Remove this text, Stan." - Gorath
LightingExpert13: @ContingentCat really? interesting. Sorry I live a life of cable.
DainBread: My god, it looks like someone was digging here in search of <invalid_item069>
HundreydAundre: Well, that show how much I know from my outside world. Or said world from the outside.
Arclight_Dynamo: Huh.
djalternative: haven't we already looted eyes and ring?
thraximore: Oh I get it
eDRoaCH: damn that guy is 8ft tall
thraximore: Invitation the box?
DainBread: TRY DIPLOMACY!
HundreydAundre: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: a very glossy jpeg of a goat
thraximore: I dunno if that's possible to cast on an objcet
thraximore: object*
Arclight_Dynamo: Wait, yeah, why is James so tiny?
ContingentCat: !advice
LRRbot: Try standing closer to the sky.
Juliamon: Like, they totally could have done that with Brave. Merida could have had a talk with one of the guys and been like "look, I don't care as long as I get to keep doing my thing" but nah let's push "care more about your direct blood relatives" instead, thanks Disney
JadedCynic: @Juliamon I was about to mention that (when beej distracted me with Lupin ;) ) I want a young couple being forced into an arranged marriage and the both neither have interest in the other, and both work to get out of it, but seem to be forced by 'the good of their two kingdoms' and when all seems lost, something happens that bonds the two kingdoms and the marriage isn't NECESSARY for good relations, and they're free to live their own lives, and remain good friends (and allied rulers) anyway
thraximore: Make Gorath tank it?
eDRoaCH: so is this just a tripwire and a cannon?
HundreydAundre: Oh no! an NFT! Wait. That can't be right. *Looks up what an actual NFT is*
ghyllnox: So kid, first of all, there's a lot of people with gender in these movies and just want to let you know that you don't have to be one of them. Second, relationships aren't decide-and-do. There's another person involved. And third, the other person doesn't have to be a man, a woman, or even one person at all. Fourth, if you don't want to have a relationship like that, you don't have to. Any questions?
JadedCynic: tank the cannon, or the tripwire?
Krelera88: owen has a spell to reflect stuff
thraximore: oh yeahh
TheMerricat: middle
thraximore: better than dying
ContingentCat: @ghyllnox kid: uhhhhhhhhh
thraximore: and there you go!
JadedCynic: yay!
JadedCynic: well, it's LESS than the damage would have been
Krelera88: I think there's another spell specifically for those traps, but I can't recall what it is or whether you have it
ghyllnox: Smoke
mtvcdm: Smoke
crowyote: breath?
DainBread: Well sir, 1:30am in my part of the world, but glad I could pop in for a bit! Enjoy the betrayals and the Krondor. :)
TheMerricat: night @DainBread !
JadedCynic: o/ DainBread have a good night
Arclight_Dynamo: Assassin's? Yeesh, we really did miss this place.
JadedCynic: oh wait, does it involve that special pact they have with Lims-Kragma?
JadedCynic: TEETH!
jibkat: Ship that Grim
JadedCynic: :)
JadedCynic: yeah, I've heard that one before...
JadedCynic: dang
JadedCynic: Whale Plaid, Grimm SeemsGood
JadedCynic: you do you, dude
LightingExpert13: sorry i don't get it. might look at the vod later to understand it.
chaostreader: @hexy_lexy The captain wanted to be on the raft.
TheMerricat: @hexy_lexy the captain wanted the last spot so he asked an impossible quesiton, to name all 154 of the crew
ritchards: How much money do you have compared with how much a standard run would have?
hexy_lexy: ok, thanks. thats pretty good
TheMerricat: BTW the key to making Grim laugh is a conversation in another town.
TehAmelie: are we going around destabilizing the poor pre-industrial economy?
JadedCynic: @TehAmelie if anything, we MIGHT be *stabilizing* it...
JonnyGlitch: I had to duck out I didn't think you'd still be on!
JonnyGlitch: You play at some wild hours for LRR crew, a pleasant surprise for my Australian arse
JonnyGlitch: Also my Australian eyes and ears
JonnyGlitch: Hey if that's what you feel comfortable playing all the better!
Mollylele: lrrDOTS ZETA again lrrDOTS
TheMerricat: I mean we are cutting a swath through brigands and thieves, while leaving their corpses with immaculately kept weapons and armor. So we are probably putting a few blacksmiths out of work. Both by removing their customer base but also by glutting the market with quality used goods.....
JonnyGlitch: and my Australian fingies....
TheMerricat: But Dad, I don't WANT to haggle!
iris_of_ether: @Mollylele I shared this Decision earlier in the stream :) https://twitter.com/iris_of_ether/status/1396327438435581954
JonnyGlitch: @TheMerricat Alternatively, the influx of high quality good would probably be a boon for the local smiths, be able to retire on a few sales.
DarkMorford: @Mollylele Heck yeah, Zeta!
JadedCynic: @TheMerricat don't wanna haggle?!? Oh, deary, deary, deary...
JonnyGlitch: That arms and armor would probably go straight to the townswatch, so better for folk in the long run
JonnyGlitch: DING
Mollylele: @Mollylele an accurate representation!
LightingExpert13: @Mollylele they look amazing
JonnyGlitch: Double-backing in an open world game is grounds for me to strop playing it
JonnyGlitch: I lie I'm all over the place in Open Worlds
TheMerricat: I don't think you'd like this one then @JonnyGlitch We've crossed the map how many times now? Just for sidequests :D
JonnyGlitch: I think all my fallout characters had insane ADHD
JonnyGlitch: @TheMerricat Yeah I thought about that for a moment and realized I was wrong about myself
ghyllnox: Just armor though, none of that sword stuff
PMAvers: He's a metalbender!
JonnyGlitch: Even playing a linear game the Half Life series, I was just doubling back to check for pickups in Alyx yesterday
Mollylele: what's the all-gender term for a spellcasting person? still wizard?
jibkat: Mage?
chaostreader: Mage? Spellcaster?
ghyllnox: Depends on the world lore
TheMerricat: Witch is gender neutral
chaostreader: @themerricat Kind of.
Juliamon: I felt that "witch" and "warlock" were meant to be the binary options, and "wizard" the neutral
JonnyGlitch: I missed an words in last message. Words am "like in"
ghyllnox: Harry Potter makes gendered distinction, but few others do unless there's a system of magic that differs based on gender. Wizard, witch, and warlock are neutral in DnD, for example
Mollylele: you don't have to go hard, just show your bard card
mrverbal: yes, pretty sure
ghyllnox: But the systems of magic they use are different
TheMerricat: Since there aren't any 'real' spellcasting people, it's really just all on whatever world building the world builder decided on. I mean in HP fiction, everyone is a wizard
JonnyGlitch: @ghyllnox those words just say "sense of style" to me, like Goth, Emo, or Punk
mrverbal: @TheMerricat but also hermione is 'the smartest witch of her age'
chaostreader: @themerricat It’s specifically Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
ghyllnox: @jonnyglitch they do tend to do that too :D
JadedCynic: BAIT!
TheMerricat: It is @chaostreader but Dumbledore refers to both genders as wizards, suggesting that a 'witch' isn't a gendered term but something slightly different/ontop of a wizard
JonnyGlitch: Warlocks are Emos, Wizards are Goth, Witches are Punk?
MAPBoardgames: Yeah, someone keeps killing people then fixing their armor. lrrBEEJ
JonnyGlitch: In my mind a "Witch" deals in curses more, weather making or breaking
TheMerricat: @chaostreader or that Rowlings wasn't as careful in her worldbuilding as she could have been and forgot :) that's a problem with made up worlds.
JadedCynic: and all this is leaving aside terms like 'mages/magi' 'sorcerers' 'enchanters' 'conjurers'...

ThrashingRhino: EXPERIENCE BEEJ!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, ThrashingRhino! (Today's storm count: 85)
JonnyGlitch: Also "Witch" kind of has, negative connotations in many other usages. Often put on intelligent outcasts who questioned the authority of Men or The Church
Juliamon: Perhaps "witchcraft" is a branch of magic that originated as a more female-oriented skill but became a generalized term (kinda like how 'manpower' is still used even if women/nb are doing work)
TheMerricat: Have you talked to the innkeeper?
TheMerricat: "Q : Grimm the sad Sumani, how can I make him laugh ? A : In Baboon's inn at Questior View there is a very sad Sumani warrior. The innkeeper offer 80 sovereigns for anybody who can make him laugh. Try to make him laugh first, if it doesn't work, go to La Mut. Talk to the dwarf about Sumani then talk to the innkeeper about the jokes. Go back to Questior View and tell the jokes. Receive the reward."
JonnyGlitch: So a Witch is also a rebel against the ruling powers to me
TheMerricat: "The word witch derives from the Old English nouns wicca [ˈwittʃɑ] ('sorcerer, male witch, warlock') and wicce [ˈwittʃe] ('sorceress, female witch'). The word's further origins in Proto-Germanic and Proto-Indo-European are unclear"
TheMerricat: So in 'real world' witch is genderless but with a history in Christian world of being pegged on women.
JonnyGlitch: @TheMerricat that scans
Mollylele: wait where are the real world witches?
JonnyGlitch: the C word has a knack for assimilating other cultures and pinning negative stuff on them
TheMerricat: Real witches or accuesed witches @Mollylele
TheMerricat: accused
Juliamon: Beej: *gets stuck on a quest* Chat: *ignores in favor of linguistic gender discussion*
TheMerricat: lol @Juliamon I was multitasking I participated in both conversations :P
JonnyGlitch: Julia this is the best thing about LRRChat!
Arclight_Dynamo: Okay, I've looked up a let's play. You speak to Dubal, then Sumani. I *think* the treasure quest here might be blocking the joke dialogue with Dubal. Try again for the joke after this quest.
JonnyGlitch: Beej's soothing baritone and these tunes are the perfect backing while we discuss fascinating but obscure things
dahgoodie: i actually for the first time ever caught one of LRR´s live streams! greetings from rural Denmark and thank you for years and years of fantastic content! this just made my day!
JonnyGlitch: Welcome @dahgoodie !
Juliamon: So the joke quest is being overridden by a higher-priority quest.
JonnyGlitch: See! Another boon to late night streams! Denmarkish friends!
TheMerricat: I still have to fight cracking up over the LARP quality costumes in this game :D
Arclight_Dynamo: @Juliamon I suspect so, yes. The LP I'm looking at does the joke quest in Ch. 3.
dahgoodie: Yes! im so happy and thanks fpr the welcome@JonnyGlitch
JonnyGlitch: I love that it's "Not Quite" Live Action, photos rotoscoped over
Juliamon: TheMerricat Right?? I wonder how many actual people were involved and how many are just the same four people in different costumes and facial hair (lookin at you Gorath)
JonnyGlitch: Gorath and James are totally the same dude
JadedCynic: usually they're just the digitized still pics for conversation scenes, but we DO get a few 'cut scenes' and then the rotoscoped combat animations
JadedCynic: IIRC Dynamix wasn't that huge a studio in 93 ;)
JonnyGlitch: Oh yeah @JadedCynic , duh, I only remember like, the opening animation
chaostreader: You still had Owyn selected.
JonnyGlitch: Oh this was the Wild West of gaming in those days, solos and small teams did so much work to further the tech
MAPBoardgames: What is a body other than a differently shaped chest?
dahgoodie: un fortunately i have to leave for work... the Curse of life, need money to do stuff... dont have time to do stuff because of time used making money. do the thing Beej! yay!
JadedCynic: yeah, you'd get people 'getting seconded' to do things solo that we now have whole sub-contracted companies to do :D
MAPBoardgames: Don't work too hard, @dahgoodie
JonnyGlitch: Some games you'll never hear about because they were a small regional release that was well before even BBS was around
TheSeg: "This is the lockpicking layer, and what I have for you today…"
TheMerricat: We are knocking the number of actors, but I just looked up the credits for the game and man I'm hoping most of the people listed for Acting were VA's and not actual actors but they did have what seems like a lot
JadedCynic: I have some REALLY old games that were sold in zip-loc bags, the executable stored on an audiocassette
JonnyGlitch: For every Character model in the game there's probably 5-10 more that were cut
chaostreader: Who is the Bob Squad that got special thanks?
JonnyGlitch: You want more art assets than you'll ultimately need
Arclight_Dynamo: I would like to point out the following credit for this game: "Spider/Scorpion Wrangler -- Cowboy Mike"
MAPBoardgames: Much of this game is rotoscoped, At least, it looks like it.
JadedCynic: grab <town> community theatre
TheMerricat: Found where they got the costumes in the special credits list - Backstage Dancewear - I assume :D
Juliamon: I'm impressed, only one of those names looks like "my spouse roped me into this"
JadedCynic: @MAPBoardgames the combat animations yeah
JonnyGlitch: Oh, it looks like Gorath's beard, hair and ears are completely drawn on

TheMerricat: The Remaster will reunite the cast and reshoot all the assets as real FMV :P
JonnyGlitch: No, a Resolution increase and "clean up" and update the control scheme and THATS IT
TacitusVigil: I mean, the guy second from the right looks like Jared Padalecki. Kappa
JadedCynic: @MAPBoardgames ....well maybe the dungeons...most of the game is still 'town overviews', conversation windows, and overland travel...
TacitusVigil: Owyn
MAPBoardgames: @JadedCynic I mean the dungeon
JonnyGlitch: The UI could be redrawn pretty easy, this engine already exists in many different forms, I have a few on my phone.
JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil he would've been 11 :D
TacitusVigil: @JadedCynic Supernatural Padalecki :P
JonnyGlitch: But also, I feel like this game still plays well enough to not need a remake, except for the low res images.
JadedCynic: @MAPBoardgames yeah...I dunno how good you could 'populate rooms' with props to make it resemble the moonbase...wall decorations...but technically yeah...
TheMerricat: @JonnyGlitch and the fact that Beej had to download a patch of questionable providence to get the full sound capabilities. :P
Juliamon: It could benefit from some tooltips, but it's structurally quite sound
JonnyGlitch: and you can play it just with a keyboard, in fact the main UI looks like it was made for touchscreen
JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil yes, I know what he's famous for, I'm still telling you that this game was released in 1993 when he was 11 years old, so given development timeline, he probably would've been 10 when they were looking for 'models'
MAPBoardgames: Lots of foes fall to the might of the wizard. Few fall to the might of the wizard's bonking stick.
JonnyGlitch: It's so weird how much like James James looks. Did his parents name him after this character? Kappa
JonnyGlitch: or lrrBEEJ , rather
JonnyGlitch: Also, who's called James in a fantasy world?
TheSeg: I love this concept that you do murders, but then repair the armor and weapons of your foes. As if you're cleaning up evidence.
JadedCynic: you know you've powerlevelled when you let your mage engage in melee...and you WIN
TheMerricat: so it looks like someone tried making a fan remake of BaK back in the early 2000's but went silent in 2010. Used the original data files, so it was purely a redo of the engine - http://xbak.sourceforge.net/
JonnyGlitch: @TheSeg repairing it and selling it to the local people so they can protect themselves against future brigands
JonnyGlitch: Beej always "Goes Long", if you catch my drift
MAPBoardgames: Long, being past midnight?
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat Not just anyone - that was an original dev.
JadedCynic: @JonnyGlitch you're not paying attention - we don't take the armor and weapons - we repair them there on the battlefield, then put them BACK with on the bodies of our defeated foes
TheSeg: @JonnyGlitch It looked like he was just dropping after repairing, or is it going to a bag of holding?
LightingExpert13: wonder what makes lrr so busy?
RockPusher: ♫ Loooong, Loooong, BeeeeeeEEEEEEEeeeej! ♫
JonnyGlitch: @JadedCynic I mean, leave them for the locals to find! dang it
JonnyGlitch: yeah I wasn't paying attention to watching the grindy bits
JonnyGlitch: Hi Heather!
JadedCynic: @TheSeg nope, we have more than enough money, we just repair their used armor weapons for the smithy practice and then drop them back on the bodies.
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lrrSPOOP
Mollylele: subscribe secret podcast lrrHEATHER
ritchards: Hi Heather, any teasers for Chillpoint tomorrow?
MAPBoardgames: Yay! Secret podcast!
JonnyGlitch: Wat did you have for dinner?
MAPBoardgames: Q: did you ever summon the Elder gods and bring about the endtimes?
JonnyGlitch: check... check... one, two... checkpoint
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, maybe I'll be able to catch it live, for once.
nyarlathotep2317: favorite baked dessert
JonnyGlitch: YUM
TheMerricat: Checkpoint was interesting btw. In case anyone was wondering the internet is just as bewildered about the Sonic Release Trailer as Graham and Beej were.
Electrodyne: May I recommend Chilipoint?
JadedCynic: yeah, I imagine that whomever comes across the bodies of the brigands next takes the armor and weapons and uses their value to pay for burial of the deceased
RockPusher: What are the fams being jammed into?
damn_i_am_pretty: so who is on the secret 4th Fam Jam team that wins by not playing Magic?
hexy_lexy: how come youre so wonderful and amazing?
TacitusVigil: Favorite chowder.
Molladia: Can custard be considered "pudding"
TacitusVigil: *?
JonnyGlitch: What's your favorite favorite?
Mollylele: what if I like chillpoint more than magic the gathering
ritchards: !famjam
JadedCynic: What's your favourite weapon? What's your favourite tool or utensil?
ritchards: ah well
HundreydAundre: Its a perk to boast, I guess
JadedCynic: chat is the 4th team
HundreydAundre: Winner gets their own Boast ability
TheMerricat: @Arclight_Dynamo I think the one i linked was done by a student, I just found the attempt by one of the original devs to remake the game using Amazon's Lumbar game engine, the Youtube video is interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LRioTpg3yQ&t=129s
TacitusVigil: I assumed Beej is more of a gelatin man.
PMAvers: And so you would be very correct.
Mollylele: liked & subscribed
RockPusher: lunarj1Heart lrrHEART
JonnyGlitch: byeeee!
Molladia: I love this new feature of commercial breaks
MAPBoardgames: !subscribe secret podcast
hexy_lexy: @TacitusVigil nah, hes more of a vaseline guy
TacitusVigil: Kinky
JonnyGlitch: Beej's face would be perfect on a package of gelatin lrrBEEJ
MAPBoardgames: Heather does the podcast, Beej does the grinding the lockpicks.
eDRoaCH: wasabi
JonnyGlitch: I'm imagining a small, white and black paper container "Beej's Genius Gelatin!"
JonnyGlitch: Rice pudding isn't so nice
Arclight_Dynamo: Point of order: Giga Pudding.
SnackPak_: the things are the best part
TacitusVigil: Beejello
TheMerricat: Rice pudding is awesome chat, fight me. :P
ghyllnox: So Beej, what's the plan for the hair afterthe vaccine arrives? We were talking about it a bit on Cam's stream, and it seems like you've done the most with your hair since quarantine
PMAvers: Oko-san kicks in the door.
JonnyGlitch: I've recently discovered how Chia Seeds makes anything a delicious pudding
JonnyGlitch: BANK
RockPusher: Chocolate pudding and its upmarket cousin, chocolate mousse
TacitusVigil: We're rich! Richer than astronauts!
JadedCynic: so rice pudding and tapioca and 'vanilla pudding' were accepted for their nuances
hexy_lexy: oh man, rice pudding and tapioca were my faves as a kid and i still love them
JonnyGlitch: chocolate mousse... If I could only have one dessert for the rest of time... mmmm
TheMerricat: @JonnyGlitch Teach me your secrets?
HundreydAundre: Time, Space, & Reality....
Mollylele: what do canadians mean when they say jello
aussie_rob_w: of course not, it's jello, not jam
Juliamon: I always preferred butterscotch to chocolate, but I think I would have been really into banana pudding if it had been a thing around here
hexy_lexy: @JonnyGlitch im more a fan of chocolate deer :p
HundreydAundre: Oh, & what looks like a crystalized quartz conch,
TacitusVigil: @Mollylele Canadian jello is actually American jerky.
JonnyGlitch: @TheMerricat you take the delicious juicy / milky / soupy thing, and then (this is very important) ADD CHIA SEEDS!
JadedCynic: we kinda had The Pop Shoppe around here but it was niche; apparently more popular in Ontario
TheMerricat: I've been experimenting with making jellos using knox gelatin and koolaid packets. So far it's not been that great but I think I've just not tied down the right amount of sugar/sweetener
MAPBoardgames: When I was a kid my parents told me tapioca was made of fish eyes. (in order to gross the kids out of wanting to eat it)
JonnyGlitch: Chia Seeds. You don't know you've been eating them.
KeytarCat: ope, looks like a good day for me!
JonnyGlitch: I order Chia by the kilo
KeytarCat: meant to say vod, but also good!
Mollylele: my grandma makes old school jello salads, with like fruit & vegetables suspended in it
TheMerricat: @JonnyGlitch for some reason whenever I added chia seeds to my summer oatmeal they were definitely there even after letting them do the whole "sit in the fridge all night", I'll have to try again
JadedCynic: yeah floaters - I see that stuff all the time, but nothing on the screen itself ;)
Juliamon: My sister loves chia seeds. I don't get it.
MAPBoardgames: I just noticed the red symbol on the top of the screen and now I can't unsee it.

TacitusVigil: That's something scifi should introduce to show it's the future: jello with pineapple set in it.
MAPBoardgames: And now it disappeared. So I guess I CAN unsee it!
Arclight_Dynamo: The only reason I ever tried rice pudding was misreading accidentally making an ass-load of rice, and then needing to find something to do with it. Turns out I really like rice pudding.
RassilonDND: 88th subscriber, now I can go back in time TO THE FUTURE!
JonnyGlitch: @TheMerricat they don't go anywhere, they turn into slightly bigger balls of crunch surrounded with a jelly cocoon
Arclight_Dynamo: *misreading a recipe and accidentally...
TheMerricat: BTW chat, if you really want to make a cat or dog super happy with you and a smidge freaked out, make DIY thick water and let them try it. Their brains really aren't wired for water that has
TheMerricat: ''weight' to it :)
TacitusVigil: What is "thick" water?
Izandai: What's thick water?
JonnyGlitch: I do Chia Seeds, Milk, Dried Fruit, Honey, and Cereal.
Lord_ZYRK: Like deuterium?
TheMerricat: @JonnyGlitch ah, then I was 'doing it right' thanks :)
Izandai: That's heavy water.
JonnyGlitch: I add the cereal juuust before I eat it, everything else I make the night before
RassilonDND: Is that just water with corn starch? I don't think I want my dog doing nuclear physics
Lord_ZYRK: It's also thick
TacitusVigil: Wait, is deuterium thicc water?
Electrodyne: good for fission, and cats love fish
Izandai: sure
MAPBoardgames: @Lord_ZYRK I imagine it will freak out your pets too.
TheMerricat: Thick water is water with an additive that makes it.... thicker. Commercially it's sold for folk who have problems swallowing. But you can make it at home by adding any sort of regular thickening agent to water.
JonnyGlitch: @TheMerricat you can also put it through a spice blender and use it as an egg replacment
Izandai: huh
JonnyGlitch: Chia Flour is maybe what you were expecting? a thickening?
Izandai: By thicker you mean more viscous?
RassilonDND: @TheMerricat I highly suggest thick water over the stuff Hagfish excrete when they get excited
MAPBoardgames: Fun fact: The metal Cobalt is named after Kobolds.
TheMerricat: @JonnyGlitch actually I was just latching on you saying you made pudding out of stuff using chia seeds and thought you meant smooth pudding somehow. I hadn't thought of just adding it to something to make it pudding like and having a bit of a 'tapioca pudding' feeling to it actually might be a bonus for me. I'll probably be trying it as soon as I can figure out what to make using them :)
JonnyGlitch: @Juliamon I find the seeds to be a "flavor enhancer" for savory gravies, IDK why but they just taste sooo much better. Also they're a legit super food
TheMerricat: @Izandai yes, but not like it becomes 'slime' more like a, well a thicker liquid. Something that coats the mouth more. Maybe a good descriptor might be more syrupy without a flavor change?
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah-ha!
JonnyGlitch: @TheMerricat Iced coffee is an easy add... Also if you can handle the bitterness it's quite nice in hot tea
JonnyGlitch: I imagine bitterness to me is like chili is to others, it's strong but it's goooood!
TheMerricat: Thanks :)
JadedCynic: Ah, Jimmy is a sly persuader :D
TacitusVigil: So we're goin' a' grave robbin'?
JadedCynic: lol
JadedCynic: not gonna lie, I did chuckle at that
JadedCynic: north and then east

TheMerricat: Poor James, the devs meant for him to be a contribution to the team but we out leveled him before we even met him :P
ghyllnox: Dupe some picks for practice later?
Juliamon: Feeling outmatched by your peers? Chug a cup of Tith's Piss!
KeytarCat: is Chug a Mug the new James stream?
TheMerricat: Chat it is 1:39am here. As such I can definitely say I didn't just eat a whole 1lb block of cheese in a day, technically it was two days.
chaostreader: Trapped chests.
KeytarCat: I'll take a technicality!
Fanklok: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 3:40:09.
RoastedGravy: Wassup.
KeytarCat: Tith's Piss: it's the kit's tits!
Mollylele: we learned how to tune a lute
CaptainSpam: I wonder if there's any wordlock chests we haven't solved yet...
Arclight_Dynamo: Well, at least the spider chest wasn't full of spiders.
Fanklok: Don't be silly lutes don't need tuning
RoastedGravy: No, the chest is MADE of spiders. Kappa
Fanklok: like spiders man?
RoastedGravy: Look at all these bales of hay.
KeytarCat: @fanklok why must you hurt me so LUL
RoastedGravy: SO. MUCH. BARLEY.
JonnyGlitch: I was away from the screen, is the armor % too low to use?
Arclight_Dynamo: No, we can use it. There's just no reason to.
JonnyGlitch: i see
Fanklok: @keytarcat I'm sorry? I don't know what I did
KeytarCat: lute tuning
KeytarCat: I was joking
JonnyGlitch: it totally said nipples
KeytarCat: AsexualPride
RoastedGravy: I thought it said nipples, too. LUL
PixelArtDragon: Ah, font jokes
JonnyGlitch: the devs must've snuck in a sneaky frame change
RoastedGravy: "Let the power flow through your nipples."
Fanklok: oh, I was thinking spiders man was a *thing*
Juliamon: it is
PixelArtDragon: I really like "sidequests that boost your abilities as a reward"
MrsLlante: The joke quest? :O
Fanklok: I am well aware that spiders man exists and can hurt us
JonnyGlitch: Strengthening your Nipples wasn't the "Joke Quest"?
Fanklok: I meant a trigger
RoastedGravy: Look, Nipple Day is important.
Arclight_Dynamo: If this quest can't be completed until later, we may not be able to do the joke quest 'til then, either. The LP I was did the joke thing in Ch. 3.
RoastedGravy: You should never skip Nipple Day.
PixelArtDragon: The joke quest is one of my favorites, because it's so subtle but amazing
TheMerricat: @mrsllante we had a quest to make someone laugh but in order to learn the right joke to make them laugh we have to talk to a dwarf who wouldn't talk to us because we had this quest
MrsLlante: Ah that makes sense! Thanks @TheMerricat
TheMerricat: at least we hope this was the quest that was why...
JonnyGlitch: yeah, if it's rare, useful, and consumable, it never gets used
TheBearBee: I once spent a night trying to keep the lowest level party member alive in a boss fight so they'd gain the xp. They promptly left the party after that fight.
ritchards: Joex!
Juliamon: Everyone makes the mistake of giving Aerith a ribbon once.
Arclight_Dynamo: Welp.
Fanklok: you can get a ribbon in disc 2?
PixelArtDragon: I think I ended up doing it chapter 6? I don't remember at this point
RoastedGravy: Lims-Kragma nutz. Kappa
Arclight_Dynamo: Wow, on to ch. 3 next stream?

KeytarCat: hotel wifi so bad I'm watching on my phone at 160p
JonnyGlitch: @KeytarCat so almost pixel perfect!
KeytarCat: @jonnyglitch LUL
CaptainSpam: Well, well
TheMerricat: I'm slow chat I just realized that the border around the game was probably added so that it isn't letterboxed and wasnt part of the actual game
Fanklok: I realized that rough around the time I read your comment
LightingExpert13: @TheMerricat do you if you get that with the gog version of the game?
TheMerricat: @lightingexpert13 either that or Beej added it for the stream......
LightingExpert13: @TheMerricat possibly. I have been curious about it for some time.
TheMerricat: @loadingreadyrun is the border around the game window a GoG addition or part of your overlay?
PixelArtDragon: It's definitely overlay
TheMerricat: Thanks :)
MrsLlante: Neat!
Juliamon: It is suitably generic
LightingExpert13: thanks for the clarification. Great job heather.
KeytarCat: night, friends!
