Ace__of__Hearts: great damage phase
Simriel: One Cure-ass titan and I reckon that was a lethal damage phase
Serifina: With a little practice, it's very possible to one-phase Taniks with this method.
Serifina: But it's very much a "you need some practice"
Xooszi: Remember to use your super, G
SajuukSjet: the bins become active only after Taniks is suppressed, so you have to wait for that to happen
SajuukSjet: and Taniks can only be suppressed after the 2nd Detain is dealt with
SajuukSjet: it's quite tight timing
MrPhlip: if you're switching off your exotic I'd recommend switching to Xenophage?
SajuukSjet: Xeno 2nded
SajuukSjet: Xeno is just a good general weapon here, it does decent boss damage, and lets you clear anything else you may need to :D
KinoGami: yea each damage phase should be just enough to fire a full magazine of xeno
Serifina: Yeah, Xeno remains a really good choice
SajuukSjet: kinogami: unless you're a titan with Actium War Rig :P then you can unload a silly amount into him in one phase
josh___something: did a dreg just come out of that captain?
SajuukSjet: 3, Grahm, 3 my lord!
Call_me_Kaye: R I P
TheAinMAP: Whoa.
Ace__of__Hearts: that happens Graham
SajuukSjet: heh, the debris ring got ya

Call_me_Kaye: I think you got clipped by a piece of debris, yeh
Lysander_Gustav: the mega boop
Aileran: TIL Graham can fly
drewm1022: I think yeeted is the term you're looking for.
RomanGoro: got yeeted
Call_me_Kaye: Gotta jump just a hair farther yeh
SajuukSjet: dat debris field is out for you tonight :D
TheMerricat: chat, not a destiny person, is it one of those with regening health? and if so what's the mechanism? No damage for certain time or just time based?
Alahmnat: holy crap G
coopdawg_22: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 3:07:23.
SajuukSjet: in general, regen health based off time not taking damage
TheMerricat: thanks @SajuukSjet :)
SajuukSjet: adjustable with character stats
SajuukSjet: some modes disable most normal health regen, etc
Call_me_Kaye: Ayyyyy got there!

SmashTCG: nice
DiscordianTokkan: Spoils are important for the Monument to Lost Lights
Call_me_Kaye: Anarchy, and then in far lower leagues, Tarrabah and Acrius
SajuukSjet: from the Monument of Lost Light terminal in the Tower
revhologram: yeah for the low low price of 240 spoils
Simriel: I spend 240 spoils on a sparrpw
SajuukSjet: :D
SajuukSjet: i left that for last :P
Simriel: sparrow* cause it was the only raid thing I didn't have

Call_me_Kaye: Oh yeah also Always on Time as Sim sai
KeytarCat: Thanks for the stream!
Serifina: Sniper and Lumi are *amazing* at teaching raids!
KWardJenx: Beej is too trusting. He almost deserves to be betrayed.
SajuukSjet: !discord
LRRbot: LRR has an official Discord server! You can join here:
Ace__of__Hearts: that was great!
KWardJenx: Thank you.

Phailhammer: cya :)
coldhands0802: Bye!
MrPhlip: hopefully next week is catching up on the seasonal story because there's some real good beats in there
PMAvers: In the distance, you can hear the call of Jock Jams...
electra310: Rotate the cushions!
DiscordianTokkan: I really do need to ask the Discord for Raid runs one of these days...
SmithKurosaki: Do it Discordian :)

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Play it Forward (Beej fires up Betrayal at Krondor, the 1993 classic from Dynamix and Sierra Entertainment. Game: Betrayal at Krondor) at Thu 08:00 PM PDT (17m ago).
RangerAlpha7: but wait, how can we start a stream in the PAST. Does beej have a time machine?
electra310: We'll just start from a bookmark
ContingentCat: If anyone would it would be Beej
ContingentCat: I mean look at his hair
LunarJade: @RangerAlpha7 ot
SajuukSjet: discordiantokkan: there's always several of us around for either teaching runs, or past raids, etc
Kramburger: The stream will have already begun soon
SajuukSjet: just sometimes have to work out the timing
ShaneLeeAtk: I never question what Beej may or may not have.
LunarJade: Dang it I mistyped... I was going to say its more like a kind of coffee
Arclight_Dynamo: lrrSIGNAL
DeM0nFiRe: lrrSIGNAL
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> The Beejtrayal continues! Welcome to Kramdoor or whatever this game is... | 📷 ||
SnackPak_: lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL lrrSIGNAL
ContingentCat: lrrSIGNAL
electra310: The stream will turn on and Beej will already be started, just teaching Not-Owyn lockpicking
DiscordianTokkan: @SajuukSjet Nice! I just have to get out of the habit of tooling around solo, lol
SajuukSjet: i get ya... took me something like a year and a half of playing before even considering raids/teams/etc
Badchop: Speaking from experience, the Destiny folks from the LRR community are pretty cool to run with
DiscordianTokkan: Yeah! I used to do stuff with some LRR folk. Half of it is remembering "Oh right, I should plug the mic into my headset", hah
TheMerricat: I wish I was more into playing games with other people. Feels like every MMO I've ever played I ended up playing it essentially as if it were a single player game and giving it up once I got high enough level that you were 'forced' to play with others to move forward.
DeM0nFiRe: Same lol
DeM0nFiRe: One reason I stopped playing FFXIV is the fact that dungeons are required to progress
djalternative: It's actually really hard to combine the social aspect with the actual playing the game aspect
ShaneLeeAtk: Sounds!
DiscordianTokkan: Yeah... A friend of mine says that anything that needs match making he tends to be bad at
TheMerricat subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 57 months, currently on a 57 month streak!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, TheMerricat! (Today's storm count: 128)
SevenishMagpies: i have never seen the play it forward opening animation until today
TacitusVigil: Beejtra-oh, that's literally the title you wrote.
TacitusVigil: You win this time Beej. *This* time.
djalternative: Where do we buy LRR sausages?
Druj_Nasu subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 43 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Druj_Nasu! (Today's storm count: 129)
Robot_Bones: Not to mention all the Pauls
mercano82: It's 11:30 already!
djalternative: even better question, when did LRR venture into the meat packing business?
ContingentCat: since that CHussle episode with the meat?
mercano82: @djalternative They did an ad campaign for Munro's Meats in season 10.
Arclight_Dynamo: I *remember* you saying on stream "I won't tell the story until the Season 11 DVDs are out." :D
TacitusVigil: I did not realize Beej's nose had a backstory.
TacitusVigil: "Nose: A Beej Story"
djalternative: are these aformentioned LRR sausages available at my local grocer?
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
mercano82: Ian's a good improv partner, he never says no.
TacitusVigil: "Ian, why does the moonbase smell like...unprocessed sausage?" - Graham in two weeks, probably.
Robot_Bones: Do not stare directly into Chat
asthanius: good job heather
iris_of_ether: lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart lunarj1Heart
TheMerricat: Beej you are doing a damn fine job, thanks for all that you do for us.
djalternative: !lovebeej
LRRbot: Chat loves Beej and I love Beej lrrBEEEJ
mercano82: How about some carrot with the milk?
Robot_Bones: Banana After Work Heather
electra310: I like that big cup, I want one like that
mercano82: It felt so good when I got my haircut after vaccination, but that's me.
TacitusVigil: I like the shirts. At some point we're going to have to have Beej type shirts in the store with your own logo, like the alligator. Possibly the Beej Kappa
RangerAlpha7: I'll have beej know that he inspired me to dig up my copy of betrayal at antara and endevour to actually finish it. I had gotten it when i finished krondor some years ago
Arclight_Dynamo: Had we known you were movement restricted, well.
TacitusVigil: Exactly
iris_of_ether: Threej. Manyj?
djalternative: LRR doing a few lifestyle lines would actually be great
TacitusVigil: Oh, I'd get a polo with the LRR logo on it totally
Arclight_Dynamo: Scrub MTG Phases shirt, but embroidered on a Polo shirt. Kappa
electra310: We're all getting older, we may be ready to move from logo ts to logo polos. It happens to us all. :D
TheMerricat: Just as a heads up to chat, but I do believe that the 'owner' of the three wolf moon image has sued 'parody' shirt makers because he thinks they stole from him.
djalternative: James would probably wear one or two. He golfs
plummeting_sloth: oh, nice!
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, so you moved to Victoria and are slowly turning into tweed. Makes sense. Kappa
ContingentCat: @djalternative I don't think he does the dressup part of golf though
RangerAlpha7: I haven't seen an optional quest yet Kappa
plummeting_sloth: I almost forgot you were doing this, but now you're keeping me company as I electroplate in my basement
PharaohBender27 apparates into chat
TacitusVigil: Is this where Teenage Elvish Krondor Turtles live?
plummeting_sloth: the Prince neglected to make the Sewers a "non combat zone" due to lobbying from the rat-catchers guild
TacitusVigil: Wait, who lights the torches in the sewers?
plummeting_sloth: I mean, probably all the random mobs we keep finding down there
thraximore: 51 damage
plummeting_sloth: they won't want to wait for us int he dark
PharaohBender27: @TacitusVigil Oh wow, that would qualify for the "Words sung to the TMNT theme" Twitter
thraximore: that's too much for even flex tape to fix
plummeting_sloth: ah man, it's nice to be with characters with good armor again
thraximore: underground?
Arclight_Dynamo: I think Owyn was the first character we saw, and so we saw stuff from his perspective. So we "were" him before anyone else.
Arclight_Dynamo: So he's "us."
plummeting_sloth: We are Legion and also Owyn
corefluxx: Am I the only one who thinks that Owen's avatar looks a little bit like Owen Wilson?
plummeting_sloth: lrrWOW
TheMerricat: @corefluxx no
corefluxx: lol
plummeting_sloth: it is of course well know that there is a mod for this game that replaces all character avatars with those from Royal Tennenbaums
mercano82: Oh, Seth's been great this past year, but I kind of miss the Sea Captain.
plummeting_sloth: my own delivery has changed watching y'all do Checkpoint,
mercano82: Is Kat in a track suit?
PharaohBender27: @mercano82 Sure looks like it
plummeting_sloth: the outfits in this are so "random bin at the Ren Faire" and I love it
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth A lower-budget Ren Faire, at that :p
chaostreader: Napptha your blade.
plummeting_sloth: @PharaohBender27 if I actually see a doublet in this I might die of shock
DarkMorford: Hey Beej, hey chat!
PharaohBender27: Ahoy-hoy, @DarkMorford
Arclight_Dynamo: We've gone from Cockney urchin to Aussie to Boston. :p
plummeting_sloth: Crikey, Govn'r!
chaostreader: Poison or Napptha on Goraths sword?
plummeting_sloth: @TheMerricat Sewer gas related aphasia
TheMerricat: lol @plummeting_sloth
plummeting_sloth: explains actual Cockney's too, if you think about it
TheMerricat: oh yeah, I forgot Gorath got an anime level powerup visa vie his new sword.
TheMerricat: If the mockers can talk weird, so can I :P
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, crap. I'm looking at the HelpWeb, and the part that explains how to get Gorath the Bessy Mauler from last chapter says "WARNING: Only possible in VERSION 1.01!"
Arclight_Dynamo: So we're probably hosed on that one.
plummeting_sloth: you know of these sewer urchins were actual enterprising folk, they would come back and pick up all these fixed weapons and sell them on the surface
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth NGL, my folks and I used to go the Ren Faire near Hollister (near Gilroy), CA when I was a kid, and while I know there were anachronisms there, I don't remember enough details to say *how* anachronistic they were. Though I don't think I saw anything that looked like a tracksuit :p
plummeting_sloth: could have a brick business in that
asthanius: We still have so much money
TheMerricat: we print money. lost money is just more content time :P
plummeting_sloth: @PharaohBender27 , The one I go to, which was one of the first ones, I only go to on "Pirate Days" so I can just wear my 1812 Navy stuff, sing shanteys and threaten everyone with hanging
DarkMorford: Arr, matey!
plummeting_sloth: so I ALSO don't know how accurate it is Renaissance wise. I do know it's bad historical naval wear wise
TheMerricat: For chat - in case any of you want to peek at the maps
corefluxx: Some DOODZ!
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth And no one goes, "Wait wait wait, why's a 19th century sailor here?" :D
CaptainSpam: Owyn: Opportunistic Optometry
plummeting_sloth: @PharaohBender27 I mean, there pirate stuff ranges over like 300 years of history so I doubt they could tell :P
plummeting_sloth: ooh, there IS 2
Arclight_Dynamo: HUH
plummeting_sloth: or is that a different nasty looking sword?
obijam_: better than a squat sexful gnome
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth Fair. You didn't specify *how much* in your 1812 gear you were (I initially had an image of you in a full-dress outfit)
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, that idol is interesting...
chaostreader: Aventurine? You don’t use the crossbow much.
plummeting_sloth: heh, that would be a nice sort of easter egg. If you wear the mask from the earlier chapter your characters don't comment on the smell down here
chaostreader: -20% all skills.
Arclight_Dynamo: On the one hand, it instantly kills an enemy. On the other, it's cursed, and drops your skills 20 points.
TheMerricat: "t has 8 charges, and each combat use instantly kills ANY enemy. Wind Elementals, Tsurani Spellweavers, Makala, the Brak Nurr, Wyvrens, any enemy that you come across can be 'nullified' by this special item, but at a price: -20% to all skills, and a [100%] Near-Death condition. "
plummeting_sloth: on the other hand, it comes with a free frogurt
Djahouty: The frogurt is also cursed
plummeting_sloth: so, we can save one and merc the final boss?
TheMerricat: "There is a way to bypass this negative effect, but it involves using the cheat chest. Just stick it in the chest, and take it out whenever you want to use it, and put it back. But you MUST remember to remove it before the end of a chapter or it will be lost forever."
Fullwagon: the frogurt is really what makes it worth it
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat That's hilarious.
TheMerricat: It's also a quest item so you can't ditch it :P
plummeting_sloth: well let's get all our skills to 120% and we're golden baby
Fullwagon: can your skills go up past 100% if you increase them with the penalty and then remove the penalty?
TheMerricat: BTW I doubt we'll ever worry about this but this note is in the guide I'm reading "*WARNING* Strength is capped at 255, so you _may_ want to stop at 200 or so or else when your strength reaches '256' it will revert back to zero."
plummeting_sloth: reminds me of this exploit I saw in Total Warhammer 2. There's a banner the Orcs can get that says no models in a unit will die as long as the total unit leadership is above 50%. But you can stack a bunch of stuff that means your leadership is so high there's nothing in game that can get it that low
HedWund: @TheMerricat it's a rollover like in sideball
obijam_: Krondor layers
thraximore: Or do- I'm a sign not a cop
plummeting_sloth: so you can get a bunch of orcs that have 0 HP but can never die because their leadership is so high. So confident in their own abilities that they're unkillable, which is extremely Ork
TheMerricat: lol @plummeting_sloth I love it when devs forget to check for conditions like that
PharaohBender27: Have to say, these are awfully spacious and suspiciously dry sewers (these are supposed to bw sewers, right?)
plummeting_sloth: I just imagine people wouldn't have an army that was 1 unit of black orks and 19 heroes that buff leadership
PharaohBender27: *to be
plummeting_sloth: but it's great cause it's accidentally so lore friendly. Ork magik works because they believe that it works. So of course they can become immortal by thinking they are really really hard
TheMerricat: I remember an old Atari ST game called Sundog, it was a sci-fi adventure/trading game kinda in the tradition of Elite but more graphical. There was a glitch where you could go into the weapon dealer's shop and if chose to buy the cheapest item in the store you could click to the right of the item in the 'blank' icon slot for another item and it'd let you buy an expensive personal force shield for the same price as the cheap item.
PharaohBender27: Wait wait, are these meant to be sewers? Or have I misinterpreted this setting?
plummeting_sloth: I believe we're stil in the sewers yes
HedWund: Cheer100 I really appreciate seeing this played, especially by you Beej. BaK is one of my favorite games from my young days HypeHeyFriends lrrHEART
CaptainSpam: Look, 1993 had graphics requirements, okay? Kappa
blip2004: the sewers below the other sewers
TheMerricat: The force shield would absorb 7 hits before it blew up, but because the shield you got wasn't meant to be a shield they never initialized the hit counter on it...
chaostreader: These are the lower sewers that have been blocked off for a while.
PharaohBender27: OK, so I notice these are *sewers*, that are lit with *torches*. Anyone else see why this might be a problem?
Fullwagon: the sewery-ness is just having a hard time rendering, you just have to fill in the after effects with your imagination
plummeting_sloth: oceans have sub oceans, sewers have sub sewers, alright? I makes sense
beowuuf: smells less bad because open to the sea?
TheMerricat: @PharaohBender27 I mean they are abandoned sewers that no one could get into till now so the fact that the torches are lit and we are meeting folk in it ....
Fullwagon: Terry Pratchett had a good in universe reason for this
chaostreader: Drop the Crossbow repair stuff.
plummeting_sloth: I mean, maybe the torches were put in right as the sewers got built to continuously burn off the methane. Like the flarers they have on oil derricks
TheMerricat: ah yes it's much better to die to Carbon Monoxide poisoning than a methane explosion :P
CaptainSpam: Well, there's a chest. Time to take a duping break?
chaostreader: Napptha.
TheMerricat: are those pirates?
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat So by abandoned you mean unused, I take it. Which raises a whole new set of questions, but does answer the "how is this place not outright exploding already?" issue I was hinting at
Fullwagon: a god of dungeoneering or some such that lit the torches and filled old vases with health potions, put chickens in the walls etc
DarkMorford: It's like the Ninja Turtles' sewers. Perfectly inhabitable by reptile and mammal alike, pizza delivered at least twice daily. :p
Arclight_Dynamo: Frankly, most games that have "sewers" would be better off having catacombs instead.
plummeting_sloth: The Lamp-lighters guild are the actual heroes of Castlevania
TheMerricat: btw chat, I'm binge watching seasons of the Netflix Castlevania series and OMG it's so good.
plummeting_sloth: armed with nothing but hope, candles, chickens and prayer
beowuuf: it said the craler made it to dry land, also the idol was the first thng we found and there are pirates. I assume this previously blocked off sewer was accessable fromthe sea side (hence pirates) and we have started at the furthesy point in, which has now connected back to the smellier high level used sewer area
beowuuf: due to the bad weather
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat I'd been thinking of watching it...
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo Very true, but I couldn't resist
Arclight_Dynamo: Fair. :P
TheMerricat: @Arclight_Dynamo TBH I was never a big Castlevania game fan, but Netflix kept suggesting it to me and I decided to give in and start late last month. It was not what I expected but in a good way :)
plummeting_sloth: shame these folks couldn't get their rations from spoling surrounded by all the poo gas
chaostreader: Napptha
TheMerricat: Then I actually paid attention to the credit sequence at the start and saw it was written and produced by Warren Ellis and realized why. :)
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, yo, really? Huh.
plummeting_sloth: man, nothign worse than standing over the corpse of your buddy that got 1 hit KO'd and wiffing on your attack
PharaohBender27: @Arclight_Dynamo At least most video game "sewers" have some sort of flowing liquid, even if it looks suspiciously like fresh water
HedWund: you gotta use that pocket sand
Arclight_Dynamo: @PharaohBender27 That's very true. They're a little more believable.
TheMerricat: back to the concept of sewers, given up till very recently most places in real life that would have been in this sort of time DID NOT have sewers but instead folk just shoveled their poop into a 'poop cellar' and paid to have folk empty the cellar now and then.....
beowuuf: eh, pirates blocked off the lower sewer, thieves guild cleaned up and blocked off the upper sewer, krondor probablt has no working sewage system but are just to faux-british to make a fuss
asthanius: @TheMerricat Where was it emptied to? Another, larger poop cellar?
Arclight_Dynamo: @asthanius Honestly? Nearest river.
TheMerricat: @asthanius fertilizer, it was called "night soil"
beowuuf: flung at enemy castles during seiges, gotta keep having wars to maintain poop equality
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, well, that's both better and worse.
asthanius: Why not just poop directly into a field
asthanius: cut out the middleman
beowuuf: all aboard the gorath train
TheMerricat: Cause there isn't always a field next to you when the urge calls :P
asthanius: that's what we call a green initiative
asthanius: make more fields
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat That or just dumped it into the street - "Gardyloo!"
TheMerricat: that too
DarkMorford: Also something about "public decency," whatever that is. :p
beowuuf: no pit only pi(ra)t(es)
PharaohBender27: @asthanius The unabridged version of Les Miserables includes a whole rant by Victor Hugo of how the Paris sewers are flushing away 5 million francs because it would be better used as fertilizer
asthanius: sounds like a
asthanius: shitty song
CaptainSpam: Well, you did start a little late due to Destinyizing.
TheMerricat: ysbrydPunjail
SevenishMagpies: woo commercials
chaostreader: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:02:19.
asthanius: You gotta wonder how anyone figured out that poop helps things grow
asthanius: Like, more than that joke about the first person to want to drink from a cow
PharaohBender27: @asthanius Think I see what you were going for there, though the musical cuts out a *lot* of asides Hugo made. I once heard what I think is an apt description - Les Miserables (the novel) is more appreciated if you view it as a history infodump
asthanius: This is someone looking at shit and going "I'm gonna put that on my crops"
Zandivya: They need to get a plumber in to fix that leak anneLol
asthanius: @PharaohBender27 Sounds more like a history /about/ dumps eyyyyyyy
asthanius: but that's super interesting
PharaohBender27: @asthanius I *remember* that Calvin & Hobbes comic :D
PharaohBender27: @asthanius Heh
TheMerricat: What worries me more is that alot of cultures used to burn dried patties for fuel. Who exactly thought "you know what I really think would help out the look of this place? Piles of burning POO!"
fhorrigan subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 5 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, fhorrigan! (Today's storm count: 130)
fhorrigan: Yo
asthanius: @TheMerricat honestly? probably better in the long run than piles of non-burning poo
beowuuf: @TheMerricat gotta keep away the evil spirits and tax collectors
PharaohBender27: @asthanius Though really there's also digressions about the Battle of Waterloo, the reign of Louis Phillipe, and a specific order of nuns.
Zandivya: Compassionate larceny
asthanius: I'll have to look into that!
TheMerricat: You know if the dev wanted us to steal his shit that badly he should have fought harder in the team meeting for one more inventory slot.
PharaohBender27: @asthanius And yet Les Miserables is still more on track with plot compared to War and Peace. Do not get me started on War and Peace.
TheMerricat: Poor Owyn and Gorath are going to be addicted to this stuff by the end of the game.
beowuuf: developer should have made their 1993 game widescreen Kappa
plummeting_sloth: and don't get me STARTED on Radetzky March!
serramarkov: As long as either some player some time, takes the thing/s the developer included or putting the thing/s in brought the dev joy, the dev's time and effort were not wasted.
Djahouty: Hugo loved including basically essays in his novels about various topics.
Djahouty: In Notre-Dame-de-Paris, a chapter explains how the printing press suppressed architecture as an art medium.
DarkMorford: Oh man, Hidamari Sketch. I need to re-watch that sometime.
Arclight_Dynamo: Do you think kids these days looks at 4:3 media the way we looked down on black and white media as kids?
beowuuf: you should have started the first game like that for a minute with no comment about it :p
TheMerricat: I mean what's the use of writing a play if you can't make people a captive audience to your two hour long treatise?
plummeting_sloth: ^Ellis had a really good essay on why arguments against the Disnification of the Hunchback of Notre Dame actually mirrored Dumas's own changes to his original piece
PharaohBender27: @Djahouty Makes sense. Again, I'd argue Tolstoy was worse in that regard - the last *several chapters* of War and Peace are his thoughts on various topics. It's not even that his thoughts are wrong, it's that he. Just. Keeps. Repeating. His. Points.
beowuuf: does each chapter of war and peace start with "And *another* thing... " ?
plummeting_sloth: which, as you say, was mostly about how nobody cares about architecture any more because novels are dumbing us down
PharaohBender27: @plummeting_sloth Think you mean "Hugo" instead of "Dumas" there?
plummeting_sloth: oops, yeah sorry
PharaohBender27: But I did see that video and found it pretty illuminating.
chaostreader: You could drop one thing on one body and then pick it up later.
beowuuf: dumas, famous author of the 90s cartoon 'dogtanian and the three muskerhounds' :p
chaostreader: Also don’t you just need a stack on the body and a stack in an inventory?
beowuuf: oh, it's an 80s cartoon. I made myself old and sad
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf It's been a while since I listened to the audiobook (yeah, I listened to an audiobook while commuting rather than technically reading it, sue me), but as I recall, Tolstoy would just hard stop the story and be all, "What *does* move nations?"
beowuuf: @beowuuf lol, wow, so i was right then :p
plummeting_sloth: lets dupe the the cursed statue. We'll turn our selves hopeless, Petrus-level feeble but we can kill the whole world

beowuuf: @plummeting_sloth sadly the statue is one statues with 8 uses not 8 little statues stacked on top of each other?
plummeting_sloth: yeah, I know I know. Fun thought though
beowuuf: @plummeting_sloth true :)
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf And after he's done this like 5 times, I was like, "WE GET IT, LEO. The great man theory of history is bullshit. Marshall Kutuzov was unfairly maligned with pursuing what turned out to be the most effective strategy to counter Napoleon's invasion. MOVE ON."
serramarkov: I prefer Tolstoy's short stories- you they have an end. And yes, a moral, but you can safely start because they have an end. I'm told that War & Peace and Anna Karenina end, but I don't believe it- there are more pages every time I pick one of them up.
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, yeah, personally I wouldn't want to keep this thing. I hate stat debuffs.
chaostreader: Might as well use it while you have it.
beowuuf: @PharaohBender27 did he start typing slower and in capitals by the end? :p
plummeting_sloth: is he... wearing a bolo tie?
CaptainSpam: Look, Limm, we HAVE been cleaning up around here. See all these thugs? Yeah.
TacitusVigil: Oi oi oi
beowuuf: look at our money. we are *really* cleaning up
plummeting_sloth: Maybe he'll think you're a Mocker if you starting doing the Stupid Person voice and going "My name's Limm and I'm the biggest idiot ever derp derp derp"
chaostreader: Hey. Beej. Why are you still carrying the gas mask?
beowuuf: ooooh
TheMerricat: @chaostreader just in case
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf Again, I experienced this by audiobook, so I don't technically know :p Though it more came across almost as though he thought the reader had missed or not gotten it earlier. Which, to be fair, makes some sense when you know it was originally published in a serialized version.
plummeting_sloth: it's one of those cursed symbol monkey's all all the jade
electra310: The Statue is made entirely of poison!
beowuuf: @PharaohBender27 oh, so it's more like the gi joe moral / message at the end of each episode, got it! :D
plummeting_sloth: also, doesn't our own read on the idol state that The Crawler still needs to use it kill someone
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf In fact, a lot of issues with 19th century novels can be explained when you realize that a) many of the writers were paid by the word, and b) many of these stories were published in a serialized fashion.
plummeting_sloth: so like... hope we didn't just help do a regicide
TheMerricat: @pharaohbender27 your recounting reminds me of Paul's Death Stranding playthrough and how Kojima would have an NPC tell us something, then another recap it a moment later, then we'd get an email detailing the whole thing over again the next time we stopped at the safe house :D
beowuuf: @PharaohBender27 and there was no internet so writers didn't have a void they could pour all their thoughts in to, only published works :)
Zandivya: He should have chosen The Cruller as a nickname. Slightly less intimidating but much more delicious
PharaohBender27: @TheMerricat Holy shit you're right and I hadn't even thought of it that way. Consider my mind blown.
plummeting_sloth: well he was called The Shambler but the Darkest Dungeon sued from teh future
CaptainSpam: They do love the music scene in Krondor, apparently?
plummeting_sloth: haha, it's funny because he's losing his battle with alcohol addiction
ilickfeetclean1967: how is everyone tonight?
SK__Ren: Its a fetch quest
CaptainSpam: Oh, right, it was James and Lockey that got him blasted out of his skull, right?
ilickfeetclean1967: any petite elf nymphettes in this game?
PharaohBender27: @beowuuf That, too. @plummeting_sloth mentioned earlier, but there's a Lindsay Ellis video that explains the the whole reason Hugo wrote Hunchback of Notre Dame (which was just titled "Notre Dame de Paris," the addition of hunchback to the title was a decision by the English translator that pissed him off) was to say, "Hey, this massive structure we've neglected for decades and might get torn down actually has cultural value, you know?"
beowuuf: side quest, main quest, we're the ones with the keys
chaostreader: It’s in your guide as a quest.
CaptainSpam: If it's in the sewer, I swear...
beowuuf: they ay by the vowel i see
Arclight_Dynamo: I love that Neil Cic song. "Krndrwll."
ilickfeetclean1967: can you do the quest with the busty mage?
plummeting_sloth: I'm not a violent drunk, I'm a delirious drunk! For gods sake!
beowuuf: oops
CaptainSpam: Um.
CaptainSpam: Well.
plummeting_sloth: this man... should not have any sort of power. Like at all
Juliamon: THIS GUY
beowuuf: so really this is james's fault?
electra310: I'm starting to believe Nivek might not be a trustworthy fiduciary
TheMerricat: might be a reason krondor was betrayed :D
plummeting_sloth: is the end of this quest chain getting him booked into some sort of therapy
TheMerricat: I mean chat we've not once seen niveck outside of that tavern
plummeting_sloth: yes, because he LIVES there
plummeting_sloth: man, I wish re-reading the same section of a book just made me extremely good at something
Arclight_Dynamo: @PharaohBender27 sergeJustRight
DainBread: Bardbardbardbardbardbardbardbardbardbard!!
DainBread: How's it going Beeeeeeeeeeeej?
plummeting_sloth: yes, let's get teh old lady drunk
TheMerricat: Chad is this lady granny from the Beverly hillbillies
TheMerricat: chat, not chad
beowuuf: a little bit?
Arclight_Dynamo: Dala is indeed defence.
Zandivya: You have learned defence but developed eye strain
Arclight_Dynamo: I love the irony of not bothering the read the game text that pops up when we repeatedly and laboriously read a book.
Arclight_Dynamo: *to read the game text
DainBread: It's 78.1 now. Kappa
CaptainSpam: One more round of hardcore reading!
pygmybean: oh boy are we being cheatey again :3
Juliamon: No cheating here, just game mechanics
pygmybean: wow it looked like a glitch!
Arclight_Dynamo: All the exploits we use are game mechanics, too, technically. :p
pygmybean: exploits, thats a good word for cheats :D
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, see, there are exploits and then there are cheats. We have standards here. :p
Arclight_Dynamo: (There *is* a difference. The speedrunning community has strict definitions that I find useful.)
pygmybean: ah forgive me for misunderstanding lol
plummeting_sloth: the only cheat so far has been that chest that we went back and undid ourselves using
Arclight_Dynamo: Like, when we entered a code and opened a screen called "Cheat Central," that's a *cheat*. But we rolled it back.
pygmybean: i have a feeling youve dealt with fae being successfully in the past
pygmybean: *beings
Zandivya: There's a sign in the back of the tavern. It reads "Never stop luting"
Arclight_Dynamo: Arclight's the name, splitting hairs is the game. ;)
plummeting_sloth: but yeah, speedrunning communities are BIG in making sure there's a firm line between the two terms
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh yikes.
pygmybean: ah that would be it. i dont know anything about speenrunning. i take my time
DainBread: bggFine
pygmybean: oof
Arclight_Dynamo: The HelpWeb suggests you fight through them.
Arclight_Dynamo: So...
plummeting_sloth: now is not the time to save some coin on travel
plummeting_sloth: BOOO
Arclight_Dynamo: Well feck.
Arclight_Dynamo: That'd be why the HelpWeb says to fight, I guess.
plummeting_sloth: "I'm sorry there's nothing I can do " Well, I want to speak to the portals manager then"
pygmybean: karen has made her way to the temple asking for god themselves
plummeting_sloth: another one of those "Go first in the fight or lose" kind of things
blip2004: wow this is rough
pygmybean: this is worrying
thraximore: Thoughts like clouds
chaostreader: Call dogs?
Juliamon: Coward!
serramarkov: Good night to you all, thanks for the stream and the chat! Be well and stay wonderful! lrrHEART PrideRise
plummeting_sloth: oh NOw it's a stick fight!
chaostreader: Flux is good damage?
plummeting_sloth: wow, these guys are tough
plummeting_sloth: but yeah, the ultimate strategy to beating these folks seems to be "go first"
plummeting_sloth: although holy hell doing 5 of them. WE might want to make sure we've got an AOE ready?
chaostreader: Evil seek hit more than one so do that for the max?
Arclight_Dynamo: Rekt.
plummeting_sloth: god I wish there was a way to undo an enemy freeze spell
pygmybean: plz mr evil mage plz stop doing the things
plummeting_sloth: such a bummer for 2 person squads
chaostreader: Call dogs
pygmybean: wrecked
pygmybean: i think
pygmybean: theyre dead right
plummeting_sloth: now let's back slowly away and have a camp nap or 2
pygmybean: no naps!?
dkosa: back up and camp
Arclight_Dynamo: Would summons be useful as a way to give the serpent men more targets? Better a dead magical dog than a dead Gorath.
plummeting_sloth: yeah, for the 5 stack that be a good idea
Arclight_Dynamo: A second evil seek might just end them.
mrMorphius: chug chug chug
pygmybean: did he leave!?!
pygmybean: get back here you coward!
Arclight_Dynamo: See? Easy.
pygmybean: no survivors!
pygmybean: i dont understand this game but i know i want blood! \0.0/
HundreydAundre: Spread the word. & then forget your friends. They never hear from you afterwards as if Us never was. Or been...
plummeting_sloth: Tell your friends! Unless I've killed all your friends! then tell some strangers
pygmybean: leave a notice on the town announcement board if everyone sleepn
chaostreader: There should only be 4 bodies because one ran.
dkosa: there were only 4 dead, didn't you get them all
pygmybean: no we gotta find the other guy too :p
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, time to bless Gorath's new sword, too. This is the place for it.

pygmybean: what are they gonna do with his skin!?
Arclight_Dynamo: Hey, Beej, does Owyn know Steelfire?
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, right, yes.
Arclight_Dynamo: Naptha *is* Steelfire.
Arclight_Dynamo: Yep!
Arclight_Dynamo: Also, you need to break.
pygmybean: make camp beej!
mtvcdm: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!
Arclight_Dynamo: I wonder is steelfire can be cast before combat, though, like naptha.
Arclight_Dynamo: *if
DarkMorford: Steal fire? Who do I look like, King Louie?
Djahouty: More like Prometheus
DarkMorford: Ook ook katesLewd
dkosa: like on the ability screen where you can look at the SPELLS?
Arclight_Dynamo: I mean that we can already cast spells out of combat. I wonder if this can be cast the same way.
Arclight_Dynamo: If so, we can ditch the naptha.
dkosa: would make sense
dkosa: but how long would it last?
chaostreader: @arclight_dynamo But the spell would cost stamina and Naptha doesn’t.
LunarJade: [Beej] I don't think I can target anyone outside of combat, though.
Arclight_Dynamo: Yes. But then we can sleep.
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, dinger.
LightingExpert13: chat, what chapter are we on? Trying to catch up.
Arclight_Dynamo: This is chapter 6.
dkosa: we won't know for sure until we try 😋
LightingExpert13: thanks
pygmybean: aww look at this guy! he looks sweet
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh it's a joke? Ahhh, we maybe shouldn't have killed them, huh?
plummeting_sloth: good lord we're just gonna haul a full keg round the kingdom with us?
blip2004: hopefully just like a 5L keg, or 4 hogshead
pygmybean: oh money!
Greymarch2000: the soothing birdsong
dkosa: nice
chaostreader: Nice save.
plummeting_sloth: Petrumh then shotguns the cask
pygmybean: OH GOD
thraximore: LUL
pygmybean: XD
richard_ermen: Dat voice!
Arclight_Dynamo: Welp.
chaostreader: @omegaplatinum That’s okay. Just embrace the chaos.
djalternative: Whenever Beej talks about that formula, I keep thinking it's baby formula
DainBread: Sloop is a fun word to say.
plummeting_sloth: "Go break into a room and blast some spells. On granny!"
pygmybean: what is Sloop
plummeting_sloth: it's a kind of sailing vessel
pygmybean: really?! it sounds like a verb
pygmybean: like "have you two.. ya know.. Slooped yet?"
chaostreader: A bronze dragon. So it’s Chaotic Good.
DainBread: Macross? That hasn't been printed in a long time, goodluck.
richard_ermen: Always nice to see that there are Anime-fans in Krondor
pygmybean: this guys weird
plummeting_sloth: oooh
BusTed: 👀
Arclight_Dynamo: OHHO
pygmybean: sneeeeaky
thraximore: uh oh I tabbed out what did I miss
plummeting_sloth: secrets of the lockpicking magicians EXPOSED

plummeting_sloth: alright, my last piece has finished electroplating, so that's it for me this evening. Good night all
LightingExpert13: have a good night plummeting_sloth
LightingExpert13: does anyone know if the game will let you go into the water?
Arclight_Dynamo: It does not.
LightingExpert13: interesting. Thanks
LightingExpert13: played an nes game that just let you walk into the water. It soft locked you then.
Juliamon: Musta been the party leader
pygmybean: the blood looks like confetti
pygmybean: im happy
pygmybean: wait so we went all the way here to get paper we cant read!?

Arclight_Dynamo: Ha. No worries. :D
pygmybean: i love the aarrow noises
SirMorek: what a classic FF incident
SirMorek: yeah the arrow noise is so good
ahoypotatoboy: I feel like these people are all dressed for wildly different climates

ahoypotatoboy: the sword crop will be bountiful
thraximore: the devs: "uhhh crap we forgot to do anything with this house. what do we do?" "just put a cryptic blurb on it and call it a day"
Arclight_Dynamo: God, this music is so offputting. :D
LightingExpert13: romney has got some good music minus the ominus music line
ArdentSlacker: The land needs a michelin's guide.
LightingExpert13: too true
djalternative: I don't think "I'm sorry to hear about that" is a proper response to "I'm stupid"
thraximore: no mercy for this poor kid LUL
Arclight_Dynamo: "Look Jason. I'll give you money if you need it. But if you're selling me something, I'm *gonna* haggle."
LightingExpert13: X D
LightingExpert13: poor jason
pygmybean: ominous
thraximore: @Arclight_Dynamo It's a reflex
Arclight_Dynamo: It's more than a reflex; it's a moral imperative.
thraximore: Thou Shalt Haggle
LightingExpert13: if beej could haggle in real life he would.
ahoypotatoboy: are emeralds actually useful?
Arclight_Dynamo: They've had uses twice, and now Beej feels naked without one.
ahoypotatoboy: fair
richard_ermen: We need more Chaos Emeralds!
ahoypotatoboy: I like that I'm following your playthrough about as well as I followed the game when I first played it as a kid. which is to say, not at all.
ahoypotatoboy: I don't have a clue what's happening and that's how I like it
ahoypotatoboy: shots shots shots shots
richard_ermen: The encounter rate in this game reminds me of a really bad dnd-game O_o
xTJPBQdfNHA7qUxeTd5Uy9gV: dog, despair thy eyes
ahoypotatoboy: did you put those arrows in that dog?
Arclight_Dynamo: It is south of Cavell Keep.
Arclight_Dynamo: There's a big clearing. It's in there.
richard_ermen: Watching Beej play Krondor as the start of my working day is, always a hoot ^^
Arclight_Dynamo: Was that the Six?
SK__Ren: You did. "Why do I have 2 of these?" I believe was your comment
Arclight_Dynamo: Infinity Pool?
electra310: Whew, internet is back!
electra310: It's not so important at 2:30 in the morning, but in another six and a half hours, we have virtual school. :D
CaptainSpam: "Look, sir, I have this RIDICULOUSLY terrifying sword here, and frankly I'm becoming quite disturbed at the efficiency by which it ends lives, so you would do well to let us pass."
Arclight_Dynamo: Okay, you can buy lightning staffs at Dencamp or Sarth.
Arclight_Dynamo: That's it.
SK__Ren: Aren't there like, a half dozen chests of liqor somewhere?
Arclight_Dynamo: Ew. Ew ew. Ew. Eeeew.
ahoypotatoboy: alright for varying definitions of alright
SK__Ren: I missed that bit about Navon.
Alephred: That could be the plot of this season's anime crop.
electra310: I like to think she means that she has a knife and knows how to use it, so she will be fine
Arclight_Dynamo: Kill 'im.

CaptainSpam: Not interesting, but at least functional.
richard_ermen: there any use for the frankly massive amount of money we're carrying around?
ArdentSlacker: money can be exchanged for goods and services?
Arclight_Dynamo: Uh-oh.
CaptainSpam: Well.
richard_ermen: Ale it is!
CaptainSpam: If we're sure this is the place...
Arclight_Dynamo: Would you like an alternate location?
Arclight_Dynamo: Northwest Dimwood, on a body.
RocknGrohlNerd: no cheating ? honest Beej, they call him :)
Arclight_Dynamo: Alternately, you can buy one in Malac's Cross.
Arclight_Dynamo: The tavern./
Arclight_Dynamo: That's good, since my Mike's RPG map of the Dimwood isn't loading for some reason. :D
Arclight_Dynamo: Dang it HelpWeb!
Arclight_Dynamo: That's what I did, Beej.
Arclight_Dynamo: Loriel, yes.
RocknGrohlNerd: normal ass ale? well I don't know if I would buy even an exquisite ass ale.
Arclight_Dynamo: I think I misread - there's a tavern in Malac's Cross taht has a keg in a cache (?). Loriel is where it is sold.
Arclight_Dynamo: I think it might be referring to Ivan giving you a keg as a "cache."
sadryanbutler: hey beej, hey chat, how are all of you guys doing?
