Juliamon: My dad realized earlier this year that there's nothing stopping him from buying chocolate milk and now we *always* have chocolate milk
DeM0nFiRe: Haha
PMAvers: Legally distinct from the other saying
Arclight_Dynamo: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
xantos69: The best and worst thing about being an adult is you get to pick what that means.
Juliamon: he's even gotten PICKY about it
Juliamon: he won't buy the lowfat chocolate milk
djalternative: yes. I love this story
Juliamon: good stuff or go home
djalternative: buy him some expensive high class choco milk for fathers day
RunningMonkeys: elfunkPopcorn
Juliamon: dude I'm absolutely gonna get him some Cocoa Metro

CaptainSpam: What a lovely night to have a Betrayal.
Juliamon: He's retired now, he's earned it
djalternative: Juliamon, were you the one saying that they missed orange vanilla coke? I saw they had it at my local walgreens still earlier today
Juliamon: Aw man. It's nowhere to be found around here anymore!
djalternative: that's weird because they def keep it in stock here in the Chicago area
Nigouki: beep boop
Juliamon: Regional soft drink discrepancies *shakes fist*
DarkMorford: KABOOM
DeM0nFiRe: gdqTunes
Juliamon: my dad's still grumpy they discon'd the cinnamon coke from the holidays a couple years ago
RunningMonkeys: SingsNote
Nigouki: kuwabara, kuwabara? wait wrong game
djalternative: They've also got Sprite Lymonade and Cherry Vanilla Coke available right now.
DarkMorford makes a strawberry shake because it's hot outside
plummeting_sloth: you mean this hasen't been an exceptionally elaborate setpiece?
djalternative: you know, my mind was blown when I realized at far too old of an age what the actual flavor of normal coke was

plummeting_sloth: so many ways to support LRR. If you write "For Beej" on a 5 dollar bill and put it in the mail with a stamp and no envelope, it will get to them
rabbitgta: ^^ results may vary
NightHawky: You’re really coming into your look
plummeting_sloth: A "Rejected Wii-Fit" T-shirt counts as proof of purchase of the DVD
DeM0nFiRe: oof
plummeting_sloth: but only if you're wearing it and holding up govt ID
PMAvers: Probably a better chance of getting there than if you send it FedEx.
plummeting_sloth: and don't forget the ever valuable Thoughts and Prayers
djalternative: I mean, if we're not joking anymore, someone's just going to steel it before it gets anywhere near the boarder
johnalogue: yesss some beejtrayal time
johnalogue: @djalternative it's okay the American steel industry ain't what it used to be, so it might work anyways
plummeting_sloth: ah, but it's a landmark trap. People use it to guide by. "To get to the Keep, walk a half-day NE and then turn right at the trap"

JadedCynic: oh right, the red is open bleeding wounds that won't stop these...undying assassins (yeesh, sounds horrible imo)
JadedCynic: yeah, keep the one in front of gorath as a archery shield ;)
Vector_Zero: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 17:29.
SirMorek: Good evening everyone. Been trying to catch up with the vods, but it's tough
plummeting_sloth: not that it's really a criticism, but I wonder if there's a lore reason why everyone has crossbows and no one bows. Did the more square crossbow just fit in the inventory system better?
Arclight_Dynamo: James. I'm gonna need you to hit something.
JadedCynic: archery duel!
Kramburger: I only have a BFA in Design but I'm almost certain the math on 101% doesn't check out
Vector_Zero: @plummeting_sloth I did see that discussed somewhere. Maybe on tvtropes? Lemme check
JadedCynic: @Kramburger lrrFINE
johnalogue: @plummeting_sloth crossbows are much easier to use effectively
Arclight_Dynamo: Crossbows are easier to use and are a lot more powerful than most bows.
JadedCynic: it's probably for equipment simplicity - not there's no blunt weapons like maces or hammers, or polearms\
JadedCynic: *notE
plummeting_sloth: ah, that's true. Everything is a sword isn't it

JadedCynic: it was the 90s, and the first release of this game was on FLOPPIES, after all
plummeting_sloth: One day someone in the land is going to use a tinkers hammer to hit someone with and they're going to make that person King
Vector_Zero: Eh, can’t find it. I think there was a reason given as to why it was a crossbow and not a longbow but not sure what.
plummeting_sloth: *Blacksmith looks at massive hammer in their hands* Of Course! Now that I think about it it does make a lot of sense *smashes goblin*
JadedCynic: or happen to bend a sapling back and release it and fling a object stuck in the treetop
Vector_Zero: Lore-wise, they absolutely did use longbows. Arutha/Lynam’s brother Martin was reportedly expert in it.
asthanius: shoes
Vector_Zero: *lyam
Juliamon: Animating a crossbow shot seems way easier
JadedCynic: I mean "if I close to swordplay with that dude, he'll likely hurt me, even if I win....say, what if I put my sword on a really long handle?" ;)
JadedCynic: @Juliamon yeah, that seems likely, and animating just a sword (or staff for owyn's model) versus a variety of hand weapons...
johnalogue: Polearms > swords, almost always
Arclight_Dynamo: LindyBeige on YT has a very good video, with HEMA folk, demonstrating why spears are better for battles, but swords are better for duels.
themistyportal: Holy nostalgia
chaostreader: What have I missed tonight? Just got here.
djalternative: sweet. I just got a free half of an oreo milkshake
plummeting_sloth: fair, I'm just being titchy cause I'm literaly training up for my longbow during the stream
LightingExpert13: @djalternative nice
JadedCynic: I mean, the principle of the 'spear' would've come up in the STONE age when hunting - stay out of the reach of your prey. but again, game-convenience
sadryanbutler: hey beeeej
PharaohBender27 quietly slides into chat
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth yeah, I remember references to polearms with guards and soldiers in the books; like castle-gate guards...so it's a - to be fair, the limitation of the game seesm FINE if we've only noticed it NOW, 28 years later :D
Kramburger: "I got here before me.. I think"
Arclight_Dynamo slaps the PharaohBender27 alarm
plummeting_sloth: Pointy stick has been the baseline of infantry tactics from like 5 thousands years ago to distressingly well into the last century
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Oh fuck! :D
Arclight_Dynamo: :D
plummeting_sloth: yeah Beej dupe you milk gosh
JadedCynic: to be fair, we still haven't given it up completely; see the bayonet
johnalogue: No, you not bush. You ambeej!
djalternative: Everyone! Run! PharaohBender27 is attempting to infiltrate chat!
JadedCynic: james tanking like a baws
johnalogue: @djalternative it's too late. All is lost.
plummeting_sloth: I believe the British Marines had a Bayonet charge in Iraq at some point in the last 20 years
JadedCynic: GUARD! GUARD there's someone sneaking around in chat!
Arclight_Dynamo: On the battle screen, Jame's costume reminds me a lot of King Graham, and I wonder if that's intentional.
Arclight_Dynamo: *James'
JadedCynic: huh
JadedCynic: it IS sierra publishing it...
plummeting_sloth: dang, that's teh first time I've seen strength go up just from fightin'
PharaohBender27: Gee, did not realize my mildly jokey entrance would cause such a commotion :D
djalternative: I always love when people refer to the person named Jame (myself included)
chaostreader: For the experience.
JadedCynic: "never turn down a fight; you might get some smithy training afterwards" :D

plummeting_sloth: oh, speaking of weapons, one of my reenacting units was short-handed due to the holiday so I had to pick up a major order from a nearby historical site. My apartment has a new tenant for a while https://ibb.co/7VHH3fx
Arclight_Dynamo: @plummeting_sloth ...huh.
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 surely you realise you're far too a valuable and wonderful person to overlook your entrance? PrideLove
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth That a howitzer?
LightingExpert13: are they nice or causing trouble? plummeting_sloth
electra310: We just get more and more money!
ContingentCat: @plummeting_sloth does it have a name?
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic Awwww katesBlush
chaostreader: @plummeting_sloth What do you feed it?
plummeting_sloth: That is a King Howitzer. I guess I could call it King. It's a boat howitzer originally but we had a craftman make use a field carriage
PharaohBender27: @chaostreader Gundpowder
JadedCynic: black powder, and I'm guessing 4-pounders?
plummeting_sloth: @chaostreader 6 pound solid shot or cannister
JadedCynic: the Legally-NOT-Yuan-Ti <3
plummeting_sloth: hehe
JadedCynic: ooh, nice @plummeting_sloth
electra310: Now we don't have time to unpack all that?
Arclight_Dynamo: A-ha. Time for the chess piece, it seems.
plummeting_sloth: but it actually breaks down and can fit in my little sedan, which is wild
JadedCynic: "now just to be clear we both know what precisely is entailed by our secret plans, for fear of us keeping too many secrets from each other, and ruining planning...here's what we have planned: "
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth (pushing 19th-century glasses up his nose) So did this ever really exist as a land-based artillery gun? semi- Kappa (I'm curious to hear a legit answer)
Vector_Zero: Criming with Beej - lesson one. Never leave a paper trail
DEATHlikescats: lrrCREEPL_TK lrrCREEPR_FF
BrindleBoar: Beejtrayal at Crimedor
plummeting_sloth: @PharaohBender27 Oh yeah, lots of artillery pieces had separate naval carriages. And particularly as I portray US Navy during the War of 1812, this is exactly the sort of gun that the havy would have brought off their gunboat fleet when it got trapped up the Paptasco river
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 yeah, the carriage looks legit - I can see how it would break down...six-pounder howitzer, yeah, that MIGHT be given to marine detachments
JadedCynic: i.e. might be a naval weapon (carronade) with the 'optional extra' land carriage for transferring to a landed force of marines and/or seamen
BrindleBoar: squirrels around here are not effing around
plummeting_sloth: Sailors were trained artillerists, more so than a lot of militia. See for example the Battle of Bladensburg where the only people that stayed and fought during the rout were the Navy and their Marine contingent
JadedCynic: oh yeah....like some caches would grow as time passed
plummeting_sloth: oh, that's a neat mechanic
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth Interesting. A long time ago (i.e. almost two decades at this point) I was a Civil War reenactor (Union) - I feel we could have some very interesting conversations
JadedCynic: or other caches might get emptied
JadedCynic: Heck, as recently as the Boer War naval contingents affected the course of battles
JadedCynic: WarS*
plummeting_sloth: @PharaohBender27 I tell you what, I would advise anyone trying to get back into the hobby to pick and more obscure period of history. WAYYY more pleasant
Arclight_Dynamo: There *is* a copy of Unfortunate Flux in the Dimwood.
plummeting_sloth: nobody knows shit about 1812, it's great
plummeting_sloth: and nobody has Politics about it
JadedCynic: wait WHAT?!?
asthanius: @plummeting_sloth That surprises me, given the war named after it and all.
plummeting_sloth: woof, that's a price
CaptainSpam: Owyn, master mage.
plummeting_sloth: for a lot of the public imagination, it goes straight from the Revolution (with a small extension about the early founding due to Hamilton the musical) right to the Civil War
JadedCynic: I mean, I could give you a short but full lecture on the whole thing - forces and influences that pushed the nations to hostilities, an overview of the course of the war, outcomes of a handful of battles...
plummeting_sloth: Get called Abe Lincoln OS much
plummeting_sloth: er, so
Arclight_Dynamo: @plummeting_sloth I mean, 1812 is more of a Thing on this side of the border.
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth Oh I wasn't planning to go back into doing that, and I sure look back on that time on my life with no small amount of bewilderment; I just more meant the sort of things a reenactor has to deal with, though I'd be happy to talk more reflectively about it, if that makes sense
JadedCynic: I mean, ultimately, 1812 was a draw - there were times where the US was REALLY close to taking Canada from the Empire.
plummeting_sloth: ah fair enough. It s a hobby with lots of marvelous excuses to leave it
JadedCynic: I mean, even Ireland was involved in it.
TacitusVigil: You need to spend money to make money.
TacitusVigil: That's why I put all my money into BeejCoin.
CaptainSpam: I thought we just needed to conjure goods out of thin air to make money in this game.
plummeting_sloth: @JadedCynic Honestly IMO REvolution was probably closer. There was actually 2 Regiments raised in Canada that fought on the side of the Americans and CAnada actually sent representatives to the Continental Congress
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth True. And part of my bewilderment is that my parents essentially indulged me in that expensive hobby when I was a literal teenager.
TacitusVigil: @plummeting_sloth Funny how that gets left out of US history books. But surely the US wouldn't expunge things from it's history!
asthanius: @TacitusVigil Oddly enough, the US does teach about the time Canada burned down the White House
TacitusVigil: @asthanius But they leave out that it was revenge for the burning of York, Canada.
johnalogue: @asthanius literally the only thing I remember about it from school. That and possibly British piracy
Xenguin47: We're really big into just name-dropping Arutha left and right
plummeting_sloth: @plummeting_sloth heh, yeah a common problem, particularly with Navy groups as we need young people to play Midshipmen. It was a problem we eventually solved by having women who portrayed men because the looked young enough for the role. BAsically the opposite of historical acting!
TheMerricat: running late this evening chat have I missed my h?
Arclight_Dynamo: As I understand it, the Maritimes would have joined the US had there not been a HUGE British naval base at Halifax. And Canada (i.e. Quebec, and thus Francophone) didn't want to, because they thought the Americans would be worse to them than the British.
asthanius: @TacitusVigil Of course they leave it out, that was part of the war of 1812
TheMerricat: my h= much
plummeting_sloth: man, this guys coat looks plush. I want to pet it
Arclight_Dynamo: "Are you particularly susceptible to any poisons?"
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo Which considering anti-Catholic language the other colonies used...not a baseless fear.
CaptainSpam: Wow, it's hard to even joke about what this guy's asked, as he's already asked all the basic joke questions.
Arclight_Dynamo: @TacitusVigil Exactly the reason, in fact.
johnalogue: "What was your mother's maiden name"
plummeting_sloth: Please Count tell me where you found a merchant that sold crush velvet
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo I don't doubt about Quebec being wary of the U.S., because anti-Catholic bigotry was a *huge* part of mainstream U.S. culture at the time
asthanius: Quebec is wary of everyone
asthanius: Even Quebec
asthanius: Especially Quebec
PharaohBender27: @TacitusVigil Beat me to it :p
Arclight_Dynamo: :p
Sibwow: damn quebecois, they ruined quebec
plummeting_sloth: Funny related story wiht that and reenacting, did you know that a battle of the English Civil War happened in North America? Royalist Catholics and Roundhat Protestants fought a battle in Maryland
plummeting_sloth: which means of course there are several groups dedicated to reenacting it round here :P
asthanius: nerds are everywhere
SevenishMagpies: reenactors are amazing
JadedCynic: any reenactments of the Fennian Raids?
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth Huh, I had not heard about that. Anyplace I could read more about this proxy battle?
JadedCynic: *Fenian
asthanius: @plummeting_sloth Real talk: Why would anyone want to re-enact a battle on the losing side?
DoodlestheGreat: "Assess" is always OP in all the animes. notsquishY
JadedCynic: @asthanius acting vOv
johnalogue: @asthanius Are you familiar with the US south?
JadedCynic: someone has to be 'the villain'
SevenishMagpies: @asthanius folks are more interesting in acting out the past than actually winning
plummeting_sloth: @plummeting_sloth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Severn
SevenishMagpies: it's more a play than a wargame
JadedCynic: I mean the Maple Leafs have fans
asthanius: Works for me
PharaohBender27: @asthanius Well, that and sometimes those playing the losing side wish their side hadn't lost :\
asthanius: eugh
plummeting_sloth: @asthanius I mean, there's a whole thing about getting away from just doing battles in reenacting so you don't have to place things in a context of winners and losers, but yeah if you want to display the battle accurately you do need both sides
JadedCynic: heck, the Confederate States of America have *fans* for some inexplicable reason - good point pharaohB :(
PharaohBender27: @asthanius (this is a huge issue when it comes to Civil War reenacting)
asthanius: "One day I'll win the war for the confederates" I say as I tromp down a hill wearing long underwear and waving a white flag
plummeting_sloth: not having all history interpretation in the terms of doing a sham version of a battle is something I really hope becomes more common post COVID
Vector_Zero: Back Inn?
PharaohBender27: Thanks for the link, @plummeting_sloth !
plummeting_sloth: @PharaohBender27 NP
CaptainSpam: Someone needs to learn a very painful lesson.
plummeting_sloth: @JadedCynic I know some folks that do Hunter's Lodge stuff, but I don't know of any Fennian people off the top of my head
asthanius: oh no the fight's out
asthanius: i'm bout to punch yo lights out
JadedCynic: "If Gen. <so&so> hadn't decided to do <thing>, <battle> wouldn't have been lost." "Yeah, but he DID. It's an inescapable FACT. It's LITERALLY history."
asthanius: If they hadn't made the correct decision, they wouldn't have won
asthanius: duh
Xenguin47: We shall have a scrap!
Arclight_Dynamo: We may have overbuffed. :D
johnalogue: @JadedCynic and the thing is, that's not how wars even work. Winning battles is secondary to logistics and attrition
asthanius: "If the battalion hadn't marched into the sea with rocks in their pockets, they would've won!"
JadedCynic: "if the commander hadn't been hit by a stray musket ball, our forces wouldn't have been denied dynamic leadership and wouldn't have been routed." "again, but those marksmen DID pick off an officer. That was what groups of good shot soldiers were told to do on BOTH sides. Again, inconrtoverible facts."
asthanius: "All I'm saying is history would have gone differently if things were different"
plummeting_sloth: 1830's is kind of a empty field for US miltary stuff because the uniforms were so weird and not well preserved to serve for guides to remake. The highest waisted pants you ever did see
JadedCynic: @asthanius at one point, Scots warriors facing off against the english, lacking bows, stopped, pulled rocks out of the ground, and threw them at the english forces - never underestimate someone's fighting will, just because they take on stones :D
asthanius: Rocks hurt
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic Well, yes and no. Sometimes a decisive enough battle will affect logistics enough to make a difference. If anything, the logisitics+attrition thing is a good response to, "Why couldn't general X have just followed up after battle Y and won the war!?!?"
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, yeah, there it is.
frumbert: it's 25 here, and -4 overnight.
plummeting_sloth: yeah, my current place was set up in the 20's before A/C and it's set up beautifully for crossbreezes
asthanius: I can't hear it because I have my own fan going :D
plummeting_sloth: although DAMN does it get cold in the winter
Xenguin47: Honk honk!
JadedCynic: oof. I mean, it got up to 20 yesterday (monday) in newfoundland - we made a grocery run, and I was in shorts and sandals, and I even SWEATED lightly at one point <3 Finally NOT cold!!!!

JadedCynic: and then today it clouded over and drizzled and was like 14c - warm and wet and windy
plummeting_sloth: but I feel like I'm doing okay in muggy Maryland for getting into June and not putting in my window unit yet
blip2004: it was almost 30 in calgary today, and its supposed to get to 35 by friday
PixelArtDragon: 20? It got up to 38 where I am last week
JadedCynic: BIG oof
Arclight_Dynamo: I'm going to chalk that up to "this engine was new and they hadn't learned to deal with the bodypile yet."
plummeting_sloth: oh, maybe the howitzer will serve as a heat sink! All that exposed metal
johnalogue: 30? It's been 90 where I live!
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon well, last week it was an average of like 5c and we DID have snow for a bit
plummeting_sloth: gotta get some use out of this damn space taking up thing
djalternative: jeez. I've sang that song far too many times
Arclight_Dynamo: @plummeting_sloth This may be the only opportunity you have in life to make ramen in a cannon.
JadedCynic: @plummeting_sloth that's a hopeful thing - maybe put wet cloths on the barrel to cool the room?
JadedCynic: is it brass or iron?
plummeting_sloth: Also, again not a criticism of the game because they couldn't program everything, but I like how lots and lots of in-game time and at least a month or two of plot time have passed and that corn is still too young
plummeting_sloth: brass
JadedCynic: I mean, I will say this - I wanna KILL those tweeting birds - they sound like someone whistling
JadedCynic: the Count invested in bitcoin, just before China blocked it out :D
Arclight_Dynamo: The Count only keeps a solicitor, not a barrister? Small time.
JadedCynic: oh wait, she NAMED this suitor...
plummeting_sloth: Count was deep in AME, which honestly raises even more questions
Vector_Zero: Wait, one of her suitors has a daughter already?
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo well, not having a keep anymore, you don't HAVE a court to hold hearings in...
JadedCynic: @Vector_Zero sounds like it - mother prolly died in childbirth..
PharaohBender27: Realize I'm late to this thread of chat posts, but in Portland OR it's 80 F (26.7 C) right now . . . at 9 PM

TacitusVigil: Murder most foul?
plummeting_sloth: So.. you're saying there's some free wine down there
JadedCynic fans @PharaohBender27
JadedCynic: hmmmm
JadedCynic: *awkward cough*
JadedCynic: navon....neville....brothers?
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic Thanks, but my place has AC. I looked it up because I opened the window and my AC (set to go off at 78 F) *immediately* got going, so I closed the window :p
JadedCynic: mind you, six noble families claim they held the sword in the same month, so....
plummeting_sloth: "Hey, did you have that cursed as sword?"
plummeting_sloth: "I want to do... a thing"
JadedCynic: ah, mythology
johnalogue: "I mean, it's a legend. It doesn't have to make SENSE."
JadedCynic: ty
JadedCynic: time to stretch! \o/
thatjerkherc: Any ghost tonight?
PharaohBender27: Hey, did you know that "Super Secret Heather Podcast" has the same number of syllables as "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?" ;)
JadedCynic sings a revised theme
JadedCynic: yeah, scans nicely
djalternative: does Heather get a half shell?
Xenguin47: Heathers in a half-shell!
TacitusVigil: Dery power!

TacitusVigil: Wait, does that make Beej the Splinter of the group? Or would that be Ian? He has the beard for it.
PharaohBender27: Though I should note, we should not automatically expect lrrSPOOP lrrHEATHER
PharaohBender27: We should just be ready, and then rejoice when she does appear
JadedCynic: I feel like Beej and Paul are more cohorts than patron; Ian seems apt
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic "more cohorts than patron?" Having difficulty parsing that
JadedCynic: agree PharaohBender - chat is mature and responsible, it can be left unmonitored for like 5 min
Juliamon: yes... unmonitored
TacitusVigil: <.<
TacitusVigil: >.>
LightingExpert13: adam and ben see us completely different
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 Beej & Paul are other 'turtles'...maybe Ian's the 4th since he streams with Heather? So....then Splinter would be....
Arclight_Dynamo: Cheese it, it's the fuzz!
JadedCynic: oh yes, Ian would be the Leonardo - always tinkering with things
PharaohBender27: I for one welcome our hidden mod monitors
LightingExpert13: which tmnt are we talking about here?
TacitusVigil: Feels like Ben would be Michaelangelo
djalternative: who did she learn stream-fu from? G?
Defrost: Oh shit they know we're here
JadedCynic: why the 80's one, naturally
Xenguin47: I dunno, the Ben-trayer meme might indicate that Ben would make a better Raph...
LightingExpert13: fair enough.
Juliamon: anyway here's a cool trans rights nail polish that will be available on Friday if anyone's looking for a cool way to show off their pride https://polishpickup.com/collections/shop-all/products/atomic-polish-trans-rights
LightingExpert13: nice.
Xenguin47: And does this mean that Heather is the female turtle, Venus?
JadedCynic: oh wow. that's fantastic! PridePaint
LightingExpert13: was her name venus?
LunarJade: While I'm not opposed to being Venus I'd much rather be Donatello.
djalternative: nah. heather is the star of the show. she has to be one of the original 4
LightingExpert13: Thought her name was from mona lisa?
JadedCynic: I kinda saw Heather as Donatello, yeah
djalternative: Donnie it is
Juliamon: Don't let your perceived gender decide which Turtle you can be
JadedCynic: now, Beej - Mikey, or Raph?
PharaohBender27: So we have secret Chatcast this time instead - a new twist! :D
Xenguin47: Mona Lisa was a lizard...
LightingExpert13: oh thank you.
JadedCynic: @Juliamon exactly
Arclight_Dynamo: Throwing this out here: Beej would not be a turtle. He would be Vanilla Ice.
LightingExpert13: adam is venus. Strong and quiet
JadedCynic: wait....Beej is April
Xenguin47: @Juliamon Well, naturally. That was a bit foot-in-mouth-y of me there. Sorry, Heather. :)
JadedCynic: then Paul is Raph, and Mike is ...Adam or Ben?
LightingExpert13: beej isn't the hockey guy ( can't remember his name right now). Also just joking
SirMorek: welcome back!
Xenguin47: Casey Jones
JadedCynic: oh wait...oh dang...why do I get old...
LightingExpert13: oh thanks again
JadedCynic: thank you @Xenguin47 <3
TacitusVigil: It's never Lost Highway hair
Xenguin47: I am a font of actually useless information.
LightingExpert13: omg that would be amazing as nekibasara
LightingExpert13: also blackjack is a great choice.
plummeting_sloth: House
plummeting_sloth: ?
LightingExpert13: kind of want to see a cosplay of ian and beej doing blackjack and the opposing doctor.
plummeting_sloth: I don't particularly hear anything off
elfhiem: am i going insane cause i dont hear clicking lmao
JadedCynic: good ol' reliable lasers, never skip with these new Compact Discs <3
plummeting_sloth: "Ah, he's a drunk. He'll be a great wine seller builder. He knows all about wine!"
JadedCynic: I mean my hearing sux, the click probably exists, but I wouldn't hear it over my tinnitus :)
plummeting_sloth: er, cellar
KeytarCat: I heard the when you mentioned, but I thought it was my bgm because it was so quiet
plummeting_sloth: ahh, softlocks
elfhiem: i mean i didnt hear it either so who knows
elfhiem: oh nvm then lmao
walleyeguy13: @loadingreadyrun what year is this game even from?
walleyeguy13: Wow it’s as old as me!
plummeting_sloth: so I guess that spider does unlimited poison coatings until whatever plot thing happens that uses it up?
frumbert: based on a book from ? when
TheDailyMapleSyrup: available on GoG
johnalogue: nam-e? *you're already dead?*
elfhiem: im gonna assume ur actually using a pc from 93 instead of using gog or something
SK__Ren: oh the knight piece
Arclight_Dynamo: I think you have... three copies?
plummeting_sloth: does the night piece come into something with that inn keeper?
elfhiem: WAIT YOU HAVE MULTIPLE?
elfhiem: nice
KeytarCat: Is this the place you initially dropped the emerald waaaaaay back?
walleyeguy13: Is this your favorite dos game?
JadedCynic: the author whose book setting the game is based in, wrote and published a novellization and the game was included with it
elfhiem: are there differences between the dos version and other versions or are they the same? trying to find this for myself since it seems interesting
johnalogue: x-com!
JadedCynic: oh yeah.,...and the original X-Com is as 'liked' as its later incarnations :D
JadedCynic: CD version has more audio options - better storage
JadedCynic: in-game music that you're hearing
Arclight_Dynamo: @elfhiem It's literally seven dollars on GoG, if that's a consideration.
JadedCynic: ^^^\
elfhiem: @Arclight_Dynamo oh sick. sounds good, thanks!
Mivair subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 43 months!
Mivair: uwu Hi Beej! Good luck!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Mivair! (Today's storm count: 109)
JadedCynic: also Gog's nice enough to do all the configuring in DOSbox for you (that can be a headache if you barely remember what "HIMEM" means...or meant
JadedCynic: shhhh
plummeting_sloth: dang, is that is a chest factory over there
Arclight_Dynamo: Oof.
djalternative: "neat"
JadedCynic: totally NOT an oversight on the devs' part - it's a secret pass going from one valley to the other
plummeting_sloth: if we repel them, will the traps get them
JadedCynic: oh, NO
HundreydAundre: '93 looking towards the 21st Century: What's a noclip?
JadedCynic: they're trapped in place
walleyeguy13: Why are there floating shapes?
plummeting_sloth: we should help "free"them
JadedCynic: @HundreydAundre "Wait, you guys have clipping?"
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic Tell me about it. I got DOSBox when I had a craving to play SimTower again, and could not figure out for the life of me how to get the game loaded onto DOSBox and running :p
JadedCynic: @walleyeguy13 they're 'trap components'
plummeting_sloth: right you poisoned your weapons
Arclight_Dynamo: "Flux," BTW, is an old them for diarrhea. So "Unfortunate Flux..."
Arclight_Dynamo: *term, even
JadedCynic: the question is PB - does the game want extended memory or EXPANDED; each requires different CONFIG.SYS settings...
plummeting_sloth: that's a haul
plummeting_sloth: did... we crash someone's prep for a kegger?
JadedCynic: the posts have 'electric fences' between them, and then we have 'cannons' that we can push the sim-prisms in front of - the solid ones block the fire, but the hollow ones don't - you CAN make a 'cannon' shoot a 'fence post' and break it... the trick is to move past all the traps to the part of the battlefield beyond them
edgiestick: we're not taking one to get all the shops to have it in stock?
JadedCynic: guess these are Chekov's Casks - they'll be used in a later chapter ;)
Negarretep: I don't know about "no use" I can think of all sorts of uses for a bunch of ale
plummeting_sloth: huh, I was not expecting illusory walls to be a thing
KeytarCat: @Negarretep I can only think of one, and that's enough for me
KeytarCat: LUL
ContingentCat: primarily one use thougj
JadedCynic: yes, it's TOTALLY an 'illusion' and NOT a glitch in the mapping - the devs did NOT miss a spot to clip for solid terrain...honest
Kramburger: Chair?
SK__Ren: a Chair?
Arclight_Dynamo: Table
ContingentCat: chair
johnalogue: chair.
Sibwow: table
plummeting_sloth: The answer is Steve, who is a jerk
TacitusVigil: Table?
JadedCynic: Chair?
TheMerricat: table or chair
asthanius: oh my god
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic See, you already lost me there. Back when I was just playing on my folks' IBM as a kid, I just had to, for example, type Control (which I believe filled in c:\) wolf3d to play Wolfenstein 3D
JadedCynic: no....
asthanius: so close
iris_of_ether: Couch?
JadedCynic: table, yeah
asthanius: chais
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, they KNEW and did that on purpose.
Sibwow: ezpz
plummeting_sloth: Thoughts Like Clouds, Owyns fresh new mix-tape
TacitusVigil: @Arclight_Dynamo table stands as opposed to chair stands
Arclight_Dynamo: :D
Arclight_Dynamo: "What is with all the riches I'm encountering?" God, Beej, way to rub it in the faces of all the little folk in chat. Kappa
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 heh, I used to be a 100% IBM Compatible configuration master - I'd have different boot disks for diffeerent games, all tweaked for best performance (mouse drivers loaded, or the cd-rom drivers if they needed access instead of just being installed from it)
TacitusVigil: Beej is the 1%
asthanius: So...why do all of these houses have second floors that are wider than the first floors?
54 raiders from wiggins have joined!
Izandai: mattlrBork mattlrBork mattlrBork
GhostofJeffGoldblum: mattlrBork mattlrBork mattlrBork
TheAinMAP: mattlrBork mattlrBork mattlrBork
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, Chatt!
KeytarCat: Kermit du Sandau
plummeting_sloth: collar popped so high he's basically swimming in it
wiggins: mattlrBork mattlrBork mattlrBork
KeytarCat: Hello, [M/Ch]att!
elfhiem: hi matt!
Sibwow: hello wigglers
asthanius: Huh. TIL!
JadedCynic: see, there was the infamous 640kB of 'base' ram, and then Extended ram was the remaining 384k to make the first 'Megabyte' (1024, not 1000), and some programs would use that extra memory for data storage, etc... then Expanded memory was ram over 1MB
TheMerricat: Shadvesity had an entire video on why midevil houses were built like this
ContingentCat: I remember hearing about this yeah it's a cheat to get a bit more floor with the same footpint
quillilian: @asthanius jettying it's called!
JadedCynic: yeah, the second story could extend out over the street
Sibwow: they didnt have sophistocated air rights
asthanius: Ooh!
asthanius: Oh yep! Jettying is totally a thing done in medieval architecture
elfhiem: according to google: As additional space is needed, a second floor is added on. Since additional resources are available, it makes sense to increase the living space, which is not always practical on the previous floor (especially, as in the photo, you have a neighbor nearby).
TheMerricat: I think Lindybeige also did a video on thus
elfhiem: so basically they were added afterwards
JadedCynic: the side of the FOUNDATION that used land was how the property taxes were calculated
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic Mouse drivers? I . . . OK, when was I first using a mouse? Can't remember. But yes, I very much lack the DOS-Fu you clearly had :D
JadedCynic: yeah
ContingentCat: katesLol buying a house
SK__Ren: Livable sq footage
KeytarCat: Jettying, from Wikipedia
GhostofJeffGoldblum: this varies by regional law
Phailhammer: What's "buying a house"? lrrBEEJ
Arclight_Dynamo: @Phailhammer History.
elfhiem: so theyd make the first floor, then later add a second floor and decide to make it bigger
GhostofJeffGoldblum: e.g. in the states some places count it all regardless, some states never count it, some states count only finished/livable basements but not unfinished space...etc
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic *have
SirMorek: "Gone all hell for a basement"
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 I graduated in 1990, so MS-Dos was very much my bread-and-butter
Orlantia: in the US unfinished basement is not counted in footage
TheMerricat: https://youtu.be/zBVPcr7VjyQ Shadvesity video on this topic.
Sibwow: the trick is to get an underground hosue
JadedCynic: @PharaohBender27 nono, 'had' was right - I've forgottn a lot :D
SirMorek: it's a very canada thing where we assert that a finish basement is a natural thing for a house to have. See many of the states where they do concrete slab construction
JadedCynic: @SirMorek ...but...it's free real estate...
eDRoaCH: no basements in so-cal
TheMerricat: @orlantia actually it counts but not at the same amount as finished space
JadedCynic: Y'all WEIRD, it's nice and cool in this basement
Juliamon: Some land is not good for basements
asthanius: WAIT IS IT NOT CALLED A "FINISHED" BASEMENT
asthanius: holy shit
asthanius: what is going on
nauss_valantis: ALSO, WATERTABLES CAN BE A PROBLEM
nauss_valantis: sorry
Izandai: @Juliamon *waves in Floridian*
SirMorek: that was my typo, sorry
asthanius: Google says Finish Basements are a thing
Sibwow: its finished for sure
tenthtechpriest: a finnish basement?
asthanius: I am going insane
Sibwow: cause otherwise my started basement pun doesnt work as well
Izandai: We have natural basements in Florida. Also known as sinkholes.
Phailhammer: I find Estonian basements are better. lrrBEEJ
Arclight_Dynamo: My entire city is built on clay that turns to liquid if there's an earthquake. It's... mostly fine.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: where I live in New England almost everyone has a basement, but many of them aren't finished. mine is like, nominally finished, but they also "finished" it in the 60s and did it wrong so I've had to tear most of the "finishing" out and it's largely unfinished now
Robot_Bones: I prefer my basements non-newtonian
Juliamon: I live at the highest point in the middle of a pond, we're one of the few houses with a basement (which is actually partially exposed because of the slope)
asthanius: This has been real estate talk with beej
JadedCynic: pish, we GOTTA have at least a root cellar here ON 'Da Rock' - so we gotta hew it out of basalt, big whoop
xantos69: If you are in a place where you can have a basement....GET ONE. It really helps with your heating and cooling bills. But if you live in a place where it is going to flood. Then you may not want to live there at all.
JadedCynic: y'all be SOFT on the west coast
frumbert: never seen a house with a basement
KeytarCat: @Robot_Bones o no my brain
SK__Ren: I'm more a fan of non-euclidean basements. They're bigger in the inside.
PixelArtDragon: Welcome to building basements with Been!
SK__Ren: on*
PixelArtDragon: *Beej dammit autocorrect
ContingentCat: I had a mostly unfinished basement, it came in handy occasionally to dry out tents after camping without worrying about wet carpets
Juliamon: also if you end up living in a house with a basement, recognize that putting your laundry setup there means hauling laundry up and down stairs
Arclight_Dynamo: This dude looks like a low-rez Dean Cain.
JadedCynic: yeah, basement apartments are ALL over atlantic canada - a multistory apartment building isn't that common as you'd think
Sibwow: basements are for drumming practice and storage only 😤
asthanius: Install a dumbwaiter. It's useful and also you get to have a dumbwaiter
xantos69: @Juliamon True enough, but that means you get a free workout when you do laundry. Its only a concern if you intend to retire in that house.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: @Juliamon true, but moving the hookups can be really expensive depending on house/plumbing layout
JadedCynic: @Juliamon ...unless you live in the basement apartment (on the down side, if a water line for the washer splits open, you might get your apartment flooded ;)
asthanius: Wouldn't anyone learn the move by playing against him and seeing him do it?
SK__Ren: Is chess in the game all about dumpstering the chess snob?
PixelArtDragon: @sk__ren Literally yes
xantos69: @SK__Ren I think that might be what ALL chess is about.
TheMerricat: @asthanius only if they knew to look for it and how it starts
KeytarCat: @SK__Ren Isn't that why anyone learns chess?
asthanius: @TheMerricat I mean, he's given it a name so I assume at some point he stands up and goes "I AM ABOUT TO DO MY MOVE THAT I MADE"
TheMerricat: lol
SK__Ren: Reminds me about my LGS. You had the 1-2 power players and everyone else secretly brewed just to beat them.
TacitusVigil: We're rich! Richer than astronauts!
JadedCynic: I mean, I find the concept of putting a washer and dryer anywhere BUT the basement a kind of folly...you have the source for your home heating (furnace/water heater), washer/dryer and then a chest deep freeze in the otherwise unfinished basement - over time you furnish that basement with like a workroom, maybe another bathroom attached to the 'laundry' a spare bedroom and/or den...and storage
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic I kind of like the notion of a second floor washer/dryer.
johnalogue: @JadedCynic Humans should just build everything underground, protected by steel and concrete. Where nature cannot touch us.
asthanius: A town becomes a city when it gets a hundred places to click
JadedCynic: and then a generation later, you realize with a little electrical work to split things and put in a second service you can rent a basement apartment to uni students
xantos69: cheer50 Bits for the Beej.
Juliamon: To be clear, I'm aware of the advantages of basement laundry and don't begrudge anyone who enjoys using it. It just is a poor fit for my family of aged/disabled folks, and something people often don't consider when planning.
asthanius: @johnalogue but steel is metal and concrete is rocks, and both of those are nature
JadedCynic: @Arclight_Dynamo see, if/when things leak, you get water running down through ALL the floors, in the basement, the water doesn't go UP and ruin higher floors (or if it does, you've got bigger problems than wood rot)
Vector_Zero: “Inn ——- keeper. Wider than a mile.”
Arclight_Dynamo: @JadedCynic Yep, that's the one reason I'd hesitate.
HedWund: I loved the books and played so much of this game, happy to see you making your way through it
Juliamon: Upper-floor laundry also has noise considerations
asthanius: simply wash your clothes in the river
JadedCynic: Glad you're hear to see it, @HedWund! <3
JadedCynic: *here
JadedCynic: (I'm tired)
johnalogue: @asthanius Steel doesn't nature because it's been refined and perfected by the sciences of man
asthanius: oh dang
asthanius: the abbot drew naughty pictures in it, probably
TheMerricat: all I know is I've lived in places where the laundry was on the 1st floor and in places where it was in the basement, and even with grandparents who owned a house without built-in laundies or dishwashers and who used a portable setup that plugged into the kitchen sink and I was far far happier in the place where everything that required heavy lifting was on the first floor
JadedCynic: Heh, I can't believe I didn't think of that - just last week I went over to my father's place to help move his old washing machine out of the basement for special garbage pickup :D
Arclight_Dynamo: "Yes, yes. Blasphemy and heresy. But moire importantly, they've stopped paying their dues!"
asthanius: "And how does one become a Protector?" "Well first you study for 10 years..."
JadedCynic: "I mean, how else can we concretely measure a person's faith and devoutness - church dues define divinity!"
johnalogue: I was expecting much more "wink wink we won't say anything buuuut"
Arclight_Dynamo: Great circles, Beej. Kappa
johnalogue: "well-protected"
TacitusVigil: On the authority of Gowron, and the Klingon High Council!
asthanius: good stances
asthanius: Ah, but we have a tie to a PRINCE, not a king. Checkmate!

JadedCynic: and we've heard of Navon before...
asthanius: we talked to him
asthanius: learned chess from him
asthanius: and now he's betrayed us
TacitusVigil: I mean, if they were hungry enough to steal food, they can have it?
JadedCynic: yay, we're holy crusaders - we get to kill for god
JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil yeah, let's think of it like that - and not them taking them to stockpile or resell
TacitusVigil: Did we just join a cult? Remember, you have more fun as a follower, but you make more money as a leader.

JadedCynic: aw, man....I missed the start of a secret podcast while stretching my legs :\
walleyeguy13: Do you have a mousepad? And what’s on that?
Juliamon: Playmats are just big mousepads
JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil yeah, and to be fair, in Midkemia one of the most venerated gods is KNOWN to be DEAD
JadedCynic: ^^^
TacitusVigil: How did they die?
ContingentCat: oh wii, I heard weeb motion sensor bar
KeytarCat: I like the term "Blotter" for the playmat desk mat
Robot_Bones: summer fruits, summer not
walleyeguy13: Is it a standup desk?
ContingentCat: do you have any non-sticky note pads?
TacitusVigil: @walleyeguy13 It's very moral, yes.
JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil killed by demons in an attempt to usurp the divine power of ALL the gods; the actions of protagonists like Prince Arutha foiled their mortal agents and ultimately these evil entities
TacitusVigil: Neat
TacitusVigil: [takes photo]
Kramburger: Redactable
SirMorek: there is a lot on this desk, my desk feels more spartan than usual right now

ContingentCat: oh vaseline, I heard gasoline and was very confused
ContingentCat: thanks Heather
TheDailyMapleSyrup: bye
plummeting_sloth: @LoadingReadyRun Oh, I looked it up. While there is some relation to issues like door taxes and window takes which came later in history, most of the reason you saw Jettying (expanding the upper stories of houses out over the street) was the medieval housing regulations only concerned the first floor up to 9 feet (to allow for the passage of wagons). Anything above that was essentially unregulated, so if you wanted more space the upper floors were the place to do it.
plummeting_sloth: also housing was mult-generational and rarely completed in a single build, so it was common to build up and out in stages as your household got bigger
JohnnyCatz: arexLurk
SirMorek: @plummeting_sloth Jettying. Neat
JadedCynic: wait, confronting the leader of a group of assassins? why would that possibly break down into violence?

JadedCynic: @TacitusVigil sounds like we're investigating a death cult?
TacitusVigil: Sounds right.
TheMerricat: He _is_ the leader of the Nighthawks, it's not as if he didn't have you watched.
TacitusVigil: Parabeejum
JadedCynic: we know, he knows we know, and we know he knows we know...yet we're still being polite...ever see Kingsman? dinner with the big villain?
SirMorek: inverse law of ninjas?
JadedCynic: you'd think his clout and forces would be WEAKER
TacitusVigil: Maybe a secret cult shouldn't have a uniform?
TheMerricat: nighthawks are immune to the eyes and powder.
JadedCynic: well, I guess the ultimate goal is to become overt in time, so forward thinking?
johnalogue: @TacitusVigil at least they don't have posters in the town hall
JadedCynic: ow.
TacitusVigil: True. Or rings with their logo on it.
JadedCynic: and then Navon has to leave the battlefield and run for an outhouse....

SirMorek: now, it's a project
CaptainSpam: Spider! I promise not to kill you!
JadedCynic: "look, Owyn, I usually expect to see the enemy's bodily fluids spilled over the battlefield, but well...I - I never eexpected to know what large amounts of bile look like..."

chesul: 8,000. so what you're saying is, you haven't rolled the number yet, so you don't have enough.
JadedCynic: Well, we don't even NEED to sell it- we have LOADS of cash
neoshingundam: lrrGARBO BisexualPride lrrGARBO
HedWund: you gotta crank up your bard skills and clear out the taverns of their coin
FanboyBryan: catch me if you can
FanboyBryan: mouse hunt

TheMerricat: You got one from they guy in the sewers
plummeting_sloth: you got one from the kid in the sewers on Krondor
plummeting_sloth: I think it was an alternate method to get one
FanboyBryan: waynes world 2
FanboyBryan: i mean come on
JadedCynic: didn't we resolve the guild war?
plummeting_sloth: wait, did we?
TheMerricat: Sure @JadedCynic but what if we want to impersonate one of them again?
TheMerricat: We talked the ironmonger guild leader who spoke in Jewish proverbs to sit down with the Duke for a talk, which according to everyone's thinking would somehow force the rest of the guilds to sit down and discuss it too.
Ed25519: ah.... the song on sanity :)
plummeting_sloth: does staying in an Inn burn rations? Buggers can't even give us breakfast?
Ed25519: ^on^of
plummeting_sloth: huh, that was so quick I must have missed it
JadedCynic: but did we figure out who was manipulating things into a guild war for their own benefit...
tipulsar85: lrrFINE "Don't worry about it!"
JadedCynic: no such thing as overkill ;)
TheMerricat: in before we find out that having too high a stealth screws over another side quest :D
4 raiders from AdzyW have joined!
TheMerricat: Welcome raiders!
SK__Ren: Same with Cache
johnalogue: "nitch" is a crime
JadedCynic: nitch
SirMorek: i agree with neesh
AdzyW subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 56 months!
AdzyW: This has been my favourite PiF so far. Been watching it at work.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, AdzyW! (Today's storm count: 115)
JadedCynic: beej's opinions on these words and their pronunciation has niche appeal Kappa
AdzyW: adzywThundercrownwreath adzywThundercrownwreath
Kramburger: Niches get Steeches
plummeting_sloth: of course they put a knight in the rook slot but whatever
TheMerricat: spiders howl?
JadedCynic: although people agreeing with him tend to get a bit of cachet
CaptainSpam: Despair thy numerous, numerous eyes.
tipulsar85: I was busy with other Sierra games in '93. Quest for Glory 4 anyone?
plummeting_sloth: he is hitting like a train!
AdzyW: @CaptainSpam LUL
AdzyW: I'm like, 5 episodes behind so I'll see you on the VOD Mr Beej
AdzyW: <3
lady_olynder: of course
TheMerricat: have a good one @AdzyW!
AdzyW: Thanks @TheMerricat !
JadedCynic: we are the HEROES
Arclight_Dynamo: I didn't whiff.
plummeting_sloth: So Gorath missed, but this stream presupposes... what if he didn't
SirMorek: glancing blows and parried attacks feel so much better than "MISS"
johnalogue: it sucks to take an action and feel like it's been wasted
SirMorek: even "dodge" or "evade" is so much better than miss
Juliamon: Dodge or Deflect
JadedCynic: hit but 0 damage, yeah
ContingentCat: or a graze yeah
TheMerricat: Exactly, how the old D&D rules handled combat, a round of combat wasn't "I swing and hit" it was "We fought and I did or didn't manage to do some damage"
PixelArtDragon: This reminds me of a neat DM trick, where saying "the attack glanced off your armor" makes a player feel good that they invested in that armor
Kramburger: Zero Damage should sound like a hollow 'bonk'
SirMorek: did i "fumble" my attack, or did my opponent respond to my attack to negate it?
juneblue58: It's like combat in D&D; missing doesn't advance the plot and thus is kinda boring. Even if you fail, *something* should happen.
Arclight_Dynamo: This has been "UX considerations of games from the last century with Beej." Kappa
plummeting_sloth: well I think it also depends on enemy types. For big burly types, I like 0 damage hits, but for these spiders I get it more that you just straight missed them
SK__Ren: lol, normal Nighthawks are immune to poweder but the super badass Black Slayers aren't
Arclight_Dynamo: Ocean
Kramburger: That's why I prefer spells that make the enemies save, I usually get some damage in even if it's only halved
Chrysoprase: good morning
TheMerricat: morning @Chrysoprase !
cormorants: Crossbow looks like a catuar made of hotdogs prostrating itself.
cormorants: *cactuar
tipulsar85: Got enough gems?
Xenguin47: "Here, Owyn, drink this thing we found in a random chest."
JadedCynic: see, that's what I do with combat rolls, I *describe the action* - an exchange of attacks and blocks or parries, etc. maybe a low roll is an embarrasing miss rather than a blow landing solidly on the opponent's armor but said armor withstanding said attack
plummeting_sloth: @Kramburger those spells are great if you're just having a "can't roll for shit' kind of day/campaign
PixelArtDragon: This also plays in to why missing with a crossbow in this game can still feel interesting, since it can hit someone else (even if it's one of your guys)
Kramburger: @Kramburger It me, 50% of the time
JadedCynic: oh yeah, had a group of goblins and hobgoblins - one hobgob lieutenant never rolled over 10 on a d20, I explained it away as him looking tired as if he'd been sleeping when the party attacked the camp, and he was still drowsy
PixelArtDragon: And seeing "it missed because you shot wide" is very different than "well, it just didn't hit"
Juliamon: no booly
Kramburger: DMs explaining bad rolls is something that videogames can't quite replicate yet
CaptainSpam: Booey.
tipulsar85: Have any IRL maps for this Beej?
nauss_valantis: laces?
JadedCynic: @PixelArtDragon yes, I loved that....hated it when I ended up hitting an ally :D
JadedCynic: The Moredhel like that one - they brought a handful of chests with that riddle on it ;)
Djahouty: Chest vendor was having a sale
JadedCynic: (assuming the 'year' is 1495) "Yeah, I'm letting these go cheap; trying to clear out my stock of 1495 models to make way for the new '96s" :D
Arclight_Dynamo: Bubble
ghyllnox: Bubble
Chrysoprase: bubble?
JadedCynic: that assumes a giant has to be clumsy...
CaptainSpam: Rope?
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, very good.
JadedCynic: pole....nah....dang
plummeting_sloth: it's wild that I suffered through several years of the "best" riddles dot com had to offer on Riddle Me Piss and here's a game just chock a block full of actually good riddles
JadedCynic: "As I was travelling to St. Ives, I met..."
DarkMorford: I love Kermit's storytime
Kramburger: Kermit the Abbot?
CaptainSpam: Glamredhel.
Arclight_Dynamo: Wow, that's a LOTR knock-off.
Kramburger: Scooter's Uncle owns the abby
Neddy471: If it's a LOTR ripoff, the "dh" is pronounced like a "th" - "Glam-reth-el"
JadedCynic: the abbot doesn't *own* the abbey, he RUNS it.
johnalogue: @Kramburger "Abby" is short for Abigail, you mean abbey
plummeting_sloth: more a Dudly DooRight
JadedCynic: ^^^
Kramburger: @johnalogue Thanks! Thought it looked wrong :S
JadedCynic: "the party need rest....badly"
plummeting_sloth: "I will die to protect this secret!" "Oh, hey the key unlocks that door there" "Well shit"
johnalogue: @Kramburger Glad to help!
Xenguin47: Well, I mean, we wouldn't want the fight to be too easy..
ContingentCat: you have to tell us if you're a spider
ghyllnox: Why not take his stuff and dump it on the ground if he's going to reanimate
TacitusVigil: I understood that Simpson's reference. :D
JadedCynic: "Look, you lost once, so we figured we make things more fair for the second round?
JadedCynic: put it in the chest there :D
plummeting_sloth: when he gets up he'll be dead AND annoyed
DarkMorford: It's a new car!
Xenguin47: It's a box!
Arclight_Dynamo: Darkness
SK__Ren: Dahkness
JadedCynic: sounds right
SirMorek: I cast magic missile!
wildpeaks: oldfriend
hexy_lexy: hey nerds! reminder that yall are loved and valuable and beautiful
Xenguin47: AH! Spiders!
CaptainSpam: Oh, hey, there's plot in the chest!
the777s: awwww
Arclight_Dynamo: FBtouchdown
JadedCynic: NO U Hexy <3
plummeting_sloth: decent timing
JadedCynic: ooh, this font is different...
Kramburger: Whenever I see James in Krondor for some reason all I can think of is Adam's Family of Turners in Betrayal Legacy, particularly Pjames Turner
the777s: "See kids, back in the day, we had to do our own voice acting for games."
Arclight_Dynamo: Hey! He took our stuff!
TheMerricat: James, did oyu steall all our cool loot?
hexy_lexy: @Kramburger i havent seen any of LRR's legacy series, but this just makes me wanna watch
Juliamon: Classic Jimmy the Hand
the777s: is this the Kondor that has Mortal Kombat 1 graphics?
the777s: yep
DarkMorford: Senor Senior, Sr. ?
Kramburger: @hexy_lexy It's good background noise
JadedCynic: done 3/9 chapters?
Kramburger: "Three would come next... Four would usually follow"
JadedCynic: illume his way
Arclight_Dynamo: Ill-oom-inn
dispozition subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 12 months!
dispozition: 12 moths? That's like one month.Looking forward to catching up on all of these in the VODs!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, dispozition! (Today's storm count: 116)
DarkMorford: "Four shall thou not count, nor shall thou count two. Unless thou proceed'st immediately to three."
Arclight_Dynamo: That is a punchable face...
TheMerricat: OMG this guy's face
TacitusVigil: That looks less pained and more "casually bored"
TheMerricat: Delekhan just told the greatest joke of his life and is waiting for Owyn to realize it.
Kramburger: Wasn't DelleKahn in Touched by an Angel?
TheMerricat: LOL
DarkMorford: LUL
Xenguin47: What was that face..?
PMAvers: BIFF
CaptainSpam: Now THAT was a foley.
thraximore: bwup
Kramburger: BAMF
Kramburger: Dramatic_Sting.wav
Kramburger: Sorry, DramaticSting.midi
HedWund: raymond e. feist's midkemia series are great books
Kramburger: DM I loot the room
PixelArtDragon: Ah, the classic "your gear is right here" trope
CaptainSpam: Your cash! Your beautiful cash!
TheMerricat: Oh no! They took our gold!
SirMorek: all of our MONEY! rooCry
Kramburger: DelleKhan cleared our Cache?
DarkMorford: James ran away with our pocketbook!
TheMerricat: LOL I knew we were going to do that.
DarkMorford: I knew Turner was up to something... Kappa
PixelArtDragon: Invading the Kingdom? Forgiveable. Taking our money? Now Delekhan must die.
Kramburger: More like James Turnercoat, am I right?
Arclight_Dynamo: Torch.
hexy_lexy: when in doubt, Blames Turner
Kramburger: We're never going to make the world smithing championships now
TacitusVigil: World smithing championship was cancelled again this year.
Arclight_Dynamo: Hm...
Arclight_Dynamo: Well, drop a save here then try to load?
TheMerricat: I think the last save you made was before entering the waterfall
Arclight_Dynamo: Could clear the dungeon first, too, if you want.
PixelArtDragon: You do get to play as James again, but the longer chapters are with Gorath and Owyn
TheMerricat: Not that I mind a longer stream but just in case the time has slipped by you it is 11:16pm where you are, I think. :)
Arclight_Dynamo: There's a map with item locations here, if you want: https://mikesrpgcenter.com/krondor/maps/waterfall.html
TheDailyMapleSyrup: clear it

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, F0ll0wthr0ugh! (Today's storm count: 117)
Arclight_Dynamo: Yep, none of it seems terribly interesting.
Kramburger: !time
LRRbot: Current moonbase time: 11:20 PM
Djahouty: So the question is : Should I stay of should I go
PixelArtDragon: !updog
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 23:36:07. lrrSPOT
hexy_lexy: i say lets just keep our valuable items and press on with plot
PixelArtDragon: Wow, almost a whole dog-day
PixelArtDragon: On one hand, moving on, on the other hand, given how we did chapter 1, are we really watching for the plot?
ghyllnox: This playthrough is nothing if not thorough, so I'd say press on
TheMerricat: Do we have a mod on that's awake? If not - https://www.strawpoll.me/45347932
ghyllnox: Sorry, stay and clear rather than press on
Juliamon: Go with that one, I'm not sure how Twitch's poll interface works
TheMerricat: lol chat you aren't helping, it's 50%/50% :P
hexy_lexy: ah, the duality of twitch chat
Arclight_Dynamo: @Juliamon Type "/poll" and it opens a menu for you.
ghyllnox: Otoh we've not really been intentionally clearing areas
DarkMorford: Okay, I need to get to bed. Have fun, chat!
TheMerricat: night! @DarkMorford :)
saucemaster5000: For what it's worth, I voted and mostly just want Beej to continue how he feels
TheMerricat: I would have included a "Beej's Choice" in the options but he made it clear he was going to do what he wanted either way :)
Juliamon: Feel free to go with whichever poll suits your fancy.
wildpeaks: welcome back
Fanklok: do we get a sticker for doing our civic duty?
wildpeaks: chat knows everything and nothing
JadedCynic: "....who voted?" :)
Basic_Human_Decency: finish them.
PixelArtDragon: So we basically have a bicameral voting system?
Kramburger: Hoof Oated with a picture of a horse
Stormthius: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 3:27:40.
TacitusVigil: @PixelArtDragon Two houses or two options?
Basic_Human_Decency: !findquote chat
LRRbot: Quote #6215: "Twitch chat, why did you let me get greedy?!" —Adam, shortly after quote 6214 [2019-07-15]
Fanklok: there cannot be two skies
hexy_lexy: !quote 6214
LRRbot: Quote #6214: "I know I said I wasn't gonna do anything stupid..." —Adam, right before doing something stupid [2019-07-15]
PixelArtDragon: Those are the perfect encapsulation of Adam's relationship with chat
hexy_lexy: ah, classic Savidan
tipulsar85: It's not still in the upper 20s for you Beej?
TheMerricat: Too bad we can't split the cash up before James goes.
CaptainSpam: Can we dump the cash in a chest until later?
Juliamon: All we need is one dupable item, really
TheMerricat: And rations.
hexy_lexy: and besides, beej can just dupe items and sell
CaptainSpam: I forgot those were insta-kills.
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, good, we're starting over.
CaptainSpam: "Whew! Dynamix!"
Arclight_Dynamo: Now we can get chapter 1 perfectly right. Kappa
PixelArtDragon: Ah, instadeath. Fantastic mechanic.
KeytarCat: did we fall in a hole...
KeytarCat: I hate pit traps...
Arclight_Dynamo: If we poison James' sword just before he leaves, will he come back with a poison sword?
Arclight_Dynamo: Heh, neat, just wondering how the game would handle it. :D
PixelArtDragon: Save after the pit?
Fanklok: wait beej fell into a hole? But that's James' bit.
aClonedPickle: well, James is the one that fell in the hole
TacitusVigil: foxmarFALL
CaptainSpam: jlrrFall
djalternative: I always love it when people a like "Damn. I forgot to make a joke at your expense"
KeytarCat: temper
ghyllnox: Argument?
KeytarCat: miscount :O
KakuEpsilon: Dignity?
johnalogue: feels close to right but you can't win a temper
Lord_ZYRK: Wedding lrrBEEJ
Basic_Human_Decency: lawsuit?
TheMerricat: dispute?
Melkarth_: dignity=?
HedWund: dispute?
KakuEpsilon: No G, unfortunately
KeytarCat: @HedWund ooooh, nice
ostera_toralen: oh this game is charming
djalternative: dat pute
tipulsar85: Need any rations?
TheMerricat: lol @tipulsar85 we were drowning in rations just before entering here :)
Arclight_Dynamo: Boof.
Arclight_Dynamo: Uh... boof?
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah!
CaptainSpam: Those were some good boys.
ostera_toralen: so are you currently just.. kindly polishing a bunch of dead men's swords, and then returning the swords to their corpses, in order to level weaponcraft
ostera_toralen: is that what's going on here?
ostera_toralen: because to be clear I love it
johnalogue: @ostera_toralen Ah, you must be new to this stream. Yes, we are serial killers whose calling card is repairing the weapons and armor of our victims and returning them to their bodies
ostera_toralen: that's incredible
accountmadeforants: Murder-philanthropists
ghyllnox: XP by any means
sandball: hey now some of these jerks can always come back by spitting in the face of the Goddess of Death
sandball: so they can still use the fixed stuff
djalternative: I know destiny is half way there but I'd love a game that explicitly calls the PCs Murder Hobos
HedWund: it then makes the next thieves more wary, they find corpses with well repaired gear that wasn't enough to sop something
ghyllnox: If we know they're gonna come back we undress them and dump it in a chest for them to go looking for
ostera_toralen: the difference is destiny celebrates you for it
ostera_toralen: though the recent season has been a bit
ostera_toralen: 'are we the baddies'
ostera_toralen: what with the whole... oh man we've totally been doing a minor genocide on the fallen
Fanklok: guardians are giant children whose idea of fun is abusing the gift of immortality given to them by a giant orb
ostera_toralen: "hey what if, for fun, we all got together in a big arena, and shot/stabbed/incinerated each other to death, then came back and did it all over again? like, for fun"
djalternative: you can celebrate it. I just want them to be called by the in game NPCs as murder hobos
Basic_Human_Decency: sounds like earth in general
Fanklok: then we all jumped off the highest point in the tower, for fun
ostera_toralen: just to see what would happen
Arclight_Dynamo: Lightning. And there's a stone roof.
HedWund: they're after the squishy mage
djalternative: I love that there's a no man zone around the landing point
accountmadeforants: It'd be interesting if some items were impossible to use if you were completely surrounded, rather than just for having an enemy nearby.
accountmadeforants: Don't know if that's what happened there, but I could certainly see the logic in being unable to swing a staff around if you're cornered and with enemies at every side.
Basic_Human_Decency: oh mai~
Fanklok: during the red war I always thought it was funny that canonically your guardian is the only one with their light, and Shaxx still has the arena open
ostera_toralen: omg
ostera_toralen: that's a good point
ostera_toralen: shax just loves killing too much
TheMerricat: why are they still giving us virtue keys in the dungeon that we needed the virtue key in order to get the piece to enter into
ostera_toralen: goddamn iron lords
Arclight_Dynamo: Since it's probably my favourite Beatles song, I can't let Eleanor Rigby pass by without comment. :D
Fanklok: there's a welcoming showing it and the last panel is the guardian standing on a literal mountain of dead guardians
Fanklok: web comic
ostera_toralen: oh my god
ostera_toralen: i guess they'd all come back once the traveller was released?
ostera_toralen: unless their ghosts got tired of waiting and left
TheDailyMapleSyrup: LRR themed Who Voted? PNG
Fanklok: 🤷♂️
sandball: Is being not in an open sky area affecting it?
Arclight_Dynamo: I suspect the lightning rod doesn't work underground. It calls lightning down from the sky, which is blocked.
CaptainSpam: Maybe the lightning staff calls lighting from the sky, which you lack access to down here?
accountmadeforants: Oh yeah, that would make sense
Fanklok: don't bring your logic into magic
Basic_Human_Decency: skince
johnalogue: makes skins
thraximore: but a lot of lightning strikes from the ground up...? but what do I know
TheMerricat: @thedailymaplesyrup nice :)
SK__Ren: Humor?
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, I saw the answer for this, so I will refrain.
johnalogue: a joke?
Basic_Human_Decency: money
TacitusVigil: Mirth?
Juliamon: Music?
Arclight_Dynamo: sergeJustRight
accountmadeforants: "Uh, Thraxor, I was sharpening my knife and it happened again!" -"Damn it, Fjohn, I keep telling you, sharpen before you apply the poison!"
CaptainSpam: Bookmark just in case?
accountmadeforants: (I guess venom, not poison. Don't expect accuracy from someone whose idea for a fantasy name is Fjohn.)

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Oecking! (Today's storm count: 1)
Arclight_Dynamo: You ARE missing rooms.
johnalogue: @accountmadeforants if it's being applied to a weapon it's being used as poison, venom is generally injected through a fang or something
Arclight_Dynamo: South of the map.
Arclight_Dynamo: Fight, yep.
ostera_toralen: so can you only have a couple of skills on at a time, or what/
CaptainSpam: "Murderhobos, sirs. Don't mind us."
ostera_toralen: ?*
CaptainSpam: Having multiple skills on reduces the efficiency of all of them.
ostera_toralen: ohhhh okay
blip2004: its something like 1 skill gets +15%, or two get 7.5 or three gets +5%
accountmadeforants: johnalogue Damn it, why does English have to have two words for this if they cover such a broad and overlapping spectrum anyway? I just figured venom was stuff that went into the bloodstream directly.
wildpeaks: big-ass spiders or big ass-spiders
johnalogue: @wildpeaks I mean it's technically the abdomen but spiders do generally have big ass
CaptainSpam: Darkneszzz

ReddestSix: "And then he rifled through his pockets for ten minutes,"
lost_tv01: wait really? the game came first? crazy!
