strebenherz: Have you been properly watered Wheeler?

YeetTheRich_: pick a card. any card.
asthanius: Iron, salt, fat, guns, germs, and steel
KeytarCat: molten salt in two streams in a row!
asthanius: 38 is greater than 12, milord
YeetTheRich_: shut up reynad stop backseating the queen
noSmokeFire: where is the anycard??
DarkMorford: Make my monster GROW!
DoctorHutch: "Make my Monster Grow!"
asthanius: steel is heavier than feathers
DoctorHutch: @DarkMorford yeees.
itsr67: reach 2
itsr67: yeah its on some targeting abilities
Xx_JAG_xX: omg i forgot about reach, they took that out in normal gwent
asthanius: Have you not seen that Limmy's Show clip? You'd love it
asthanius: There we go
asthanius: You reacted like you hadn't seen it!
asthanius: Also my memory is trash
Kramburger: But you have to carry the weight of what you did to the birds to get the feathers
asthanius: Guilt is heavier than steel
YeetTheRich_: why does this feel like a mobile game without the pay2win / pay2play
LordZarano: Steel, because feathers take up more volume and so have more buoyancy
Sibwow: do we have bald sons
asthanius: $1 USD
noSmokeFire: how many kroner?
YeetTheRich_: I was not dunking on the game
Sibwow: i would pay 10 dollars of jamess money for this game even
YeetTheRich_: sure fair
Sibwow: a stigma?
betweenmyself: Five United States American Freedom Dollars? What a deal! riffGasp
Sibwow: wheelerPig
DeM0nFiRe: OhMyDog
itsr67: there's also a lot TO this game that I could honestly see a Play It Forward of it
Fanklok: I'm no wood expert but that seems like a lot of wood
Fanklok: How is this games tutorial compared to the other one?
asthanius: I went to wood school for 7 years and even I think that's excessive
betweenmyself: And now a fifteen minute cutscene as our characters walk to their objective
Xx_JAG_xX: s-links in my gwent??
HuecalpixquiJeanIII: Oh, I don't know this game? Is this to access another version of Gwent?
Sibwow: better in that its functional yes
YeetTheRich_: turns out thronebreaker is actually available on mobile and I think I now have a new thing to do while pooping :)
asthanius: morale isn't cards
Kramburger: You can usually keep morale at mid to high if you're careful
itsr67: shrines are available in a lot of places but can only be used once
Catastrophil: Jabba?
itsr67: so they're useful
Fanklok: But fighting ghouls is witcher work
Fanklok: I Gwent Cards a freind ofd Glen Pathfinder?

itsr67: this is just a tutorial
Gaz_L: i think that's for the tutorial
PMAvers: Might just be for this story battle tutorial
Kramburger: Not always, this is still tutorial battles
betweenmyself: Peasant life be hard work, but this scrubby welp has reached the ripe old age of sixteen.
PMAvers: And then it draws two cards from your deck to your hand.
YeetTheRich_: al ghoul warned us about this
asthanius: Isnt that the Batman villain?
itsr67: Get used to seeing a lot of cards do semi-different things as the game progresses btw
Gaz_L: yeah, remember this was based on an earlier build of Gwent, plus they decided to balance some cards differently for the single player
thegitrogsquirrel: ive heard of Al gore but Alghouls
raulghoulia: did he just say what's a battle?
Styxseus: There is this one batman villain..
DarkMorford: What was that about boosties?
YeetTheRich_: non-native speaker here, is wagenburg actually an english word?
Fanklok: No
Fanklok: It's a surname probably
Kramburger: It's possibly Germanic
Fanklok: That's 100% germanic
YeetTheRich_: it's the german word for wagon fort, feels kinda weir here
Kramburger: Keeping in mind The Witcher series is from Eastern Europe
PharaohBender27: @Kramburger Poland, specifically
Fanklok: CDPR is a Polish(?) company?
betweenmyself: Arbalests are for the weak. True warriors carry a Ballista at their waist… And wear a mighty belt to support the weight.
Sibwow: kermit?

DarkMorford: Ms. Piggy!!!!!
Styxseus: :D

Kramburger: Keeerrrrrrmmmmmiiiieee
Laserbeaks_Fury: Is this a card game?
itsr67: it is possibly a card game
Gaz_L: this is a CRPG that resolves combat through the medium of a card game
noSmokeFire: help yourself to tree (1)
Laserbeaks_Fury: Okay, so it's kinda like the game boy version of POkemon
Juliamon: This is just as much a card game as the Taiko no Tatsujin adventure game
Gaz_L: We can have little a tree as a treat
Kramburger: Signpost is fast travel, thank god
Juliamon: which is to say, totally valid to play for several months.
Styxseus: This seems.. very oddly designed/paced.. Does it open up with path and/or story choices later on?
Xx_JAG_xX: ur a monarch so it's ok
noSmokeFire: it's eminent domain
Gaz_L: there are story choices, yes, and actually a really cool mechanic around them but not sure if Wheeler will get there
itsr67: @Styxseus there are lots of story choices that impact anything from deckbuilding to the cards and allies and events you get
itsr67: you WILL see different things depending on your choices
itsr67: even some that seem innocuous

Laserbeaks_Fury: Let me go Wild, like a blister in the sun
Kramburger: Archer
Gaz_L: i think they're actually 3d models, which is weird
asthanius: Tigtone
Laserbeaks_Fury: Yeah this is kinda Archer
YeetTheRich_: the witcher series? Kappa
Kramburger: Archer is partially made in Adobe Illustrator
betweenmyself: You there, boy! What day is today? “Why it’s Noonday, sir!” Then there’s still time!
Gaz_L: Meve and Geralt hundred years, hundred years Meve and Geralt
Gaz_L: *burp*
Laserbeaks_Fury: ahh yes "subjects"
YeetTheRich_: a pleb LUL
MaladyDark: there is this software you can buy that take images and half-automatically animates them.
Styxseus: Right itsr67 , cause if it was just a matter "make sure to loot every area between every encounter" it would be a bit weird to use it only for that
Kramburger: *cough*
betweenmyself: Helmer of the floppy helmet
itsr67: @Styxseus There are just actual choices made that will give you no reward but seem good or vice versa
Gaz_L: it's kind of amazing to compare this, TW3 and yes, Cyberpunk to the first Witcher game's English dub
DarkMorford: Majima?!
itsr67: it sometimes is an actual crapshoot
PMAvers: Piglet comes up behind Wheeler, holding a dagger.
Fanklok: HIM, with their lobster hands and tutu?
Vyous: Do you want to know?
Styxseus: That sounds very witcher :D
Kramburger: As long as morale is yellow it's fine
Gaz_L: not killing, just beating them
Laserbeaks_Fury: Do you want rabble, Meve? Because this is how we get rabble
Gaz_L: if they die after, that's their business
Styxseus: Ooo, secret secrets
Laserbeaks_Fury: Craig's Board
Gaz_L: sidequests and loot, basically
itsr67: the puzzles can be simple to start but they really start to get creative later on
betweenmyself: It’s much more genteel to let the peasants live and them knock them aside with your horse than to run over their dead bodies…?
asthanius: Red is a type of yellow
Gaz_L: puzzles are really cool in this. they do really amazing shit with the mechanics later
Kramburger: See if you can get morale to yellow before the next fight, or else it'll be harder than it needs to
itsr67: Also, morale does not matter during puzzles
Gaz_L: the trap card is part of a legit great deck later in the game
Kramburger: He's broken the game WIDE open
Xx_JAG_xX: pro thronebreaker playe rright here
Kramburger: hehehehehehehehehe
YeetTheRich_: are we the baddies?
niccus: does negative morale stack
itsr67: no
UnusuallyLargeMoth: why is hanging him the green arrow???
itsr67: Neither negative nor positive morale stacks
Gaz_L: honestly, people were so confused when Thronebreaker got delayed for like 9 months after the Gwent client launched, because people assumed it was gonna just be a few scripted matches, and then turns out, nope, it's a full game with mechanics and everything
itsr67: and morale resets to yellow after every normal battle
itsr67: so morale is essentially a "set your own difficulty" mechanic if you can manipulate it well enough on second playthroughs
itsr67: on your initial one it's more like flavor
YeetTheRich_: oh this is neat
Gaz_L: yeah, they do some very creative stuff with these
itsr67: The puzzles are incredibly neat and stretch the creativity of the system
Gaz_L: this is a puzzle tutorial, so it's gonna give you the answer but the next one should be up to you
Gaz_L: yep
itsr67: Bonebreaker also completely skips most tutorials
itsr67: for the people here who like gwent but haven't played thronebreaker
Kramburger: Destroying boulders with Arrows seabatBRAIN
YeetTheRich_: !card reidane

Gaz_L: they're making like TWENTY South Park movies... why?!?
ArcOfTheConclave: is this Gwent or Not Gwent?

Styxseus: The answer is "yes"
Xx_JAG_xX: story mode gwent
asthanius: they're "freaks"
Kaorti: they're mutants
YeetTheRich_: mutants
itsr67: they're mutated to kill monsters
Gaz_L: they're unnatural plus kinda sorta kidnap kids
asthanius: they're too hot
Xx_JAG_xX: cause they're different
Kaorti: They're alchemically mutated to be better at their jobs
Vyous: They are mutants and people are afraid of what they don't understand
Kaorti: and they look weird sometimes
spleenlord: They sour milk
WizardZedd: They use potions and such to alter their own physiology. So they're not considered "fully human" anymore
Kramburger: They've been mutated so they live longer, have weird eyes, and kill monsters for money so people resent them
PharaohBender27: They're essentially people who were kidnapped/recruited as children, trained to kill, and had their genetics altered
itsr67: imagine if someone was juiced up but was also super rude and couldn't feel
itsr67: that's a witcher
Xx_JAG_xX: sometimes they'll take ur kids
munchelll: also a lot of witchers went kinda bad
asthanius: clear those debras
itsr67: every card fragment is a third
Styxseus: So people are not very kind and understanding in general in the witcher world, (understatement :D ) and the Witchers are "more different" than most, and not like anyone else, basically
Gaz_L: i believe those carry over into regular Gwent
KeytarCat: A lot of why Witchers are the way they are is because folks are scared of their mutations. It's why Xavier made a school
charli3_r: hey ben!
itsr67: puzzle time
Gaz_L: time to use that big brain Mr Wheeler
strebenherz: So the witcher series is dark ages xmen universe?
YeetTheRich_: the queen if off somewhere chopping wood again
YeetTheRich_: *is
itsr67: also feel free to restart puzzles as need be
PharaohBender27: @strebenherz Eh, not exactly - from my understanding, Witchers aren't born mutated like the X-Men mutants, but they're taken/recruited as children and made mutants specifically to make them more effective at killing monsters
Gaz_L: S M R T
Kramburger: In the witcher 3 there's a choice to save or destroy the formulas that create the mutations because they're useful but have a high death rate
Gaz_L: that's how you change abilities
itsr67: ^
PharaohBender27: @Kramburger Which mission was that? I played a lot of Witcher 3 a few years ago, but it's been a little while :p
Gaz_L: i believe it's in the Blood & Wine expansion
PharaohBender27: @Gaz_L Oh wait, I think I know what you're talking about, and you could destroy the formulas? Somehow I'd missed that option
asthanius: Does Bad Dragon sell Iron Fists?
YeetTheRich_: pog dude
TimeToFry: PogChamp ?
Kaorti: decidely un-poggers
asthanius: pogroms are pretty un-pog, it's true
Kaorti: *decidedly
PharaohBender27: For those unfamiliar with the term, pogroms are NOT PogChamp
Kramburger: It's towards the end of the game before the Battle of Kaer Morhen. Yen needs the formulas for Ciri
Kramburger: Pogrom = Genocide
asthanius: That card's name changed multiple times
Gaz_L: they're light infantry, not poor
itsr67: LUL
PharaohBender27: You know about Kristallnacht? That was officially called "ReichsPOGROMnacht" (caps done for emphasis)
Gaz_L: it's almost like it's some kind of deliberately tricky problem the game is giving you to solve!
Kramburger: It definitely could be clearer
asthanius: reading the gwent explains the gwent
itsr67: nailed it
PharaohBender27: And hold on, I have to correct myself, that was actually a more recent term to make it clear what happened in that event, my bad
YeetTheRich_: I appreciate the restart without loading time

Kramburger: This is literally Gwent single player
asthanius: Queen's got gold splits
Gaz_L: i love goooool- i mean woooooood

Gaz_L: i mean, you know why
asthanius: wood member is just morning wood
asthanius: let's not kid ourselves
Dandinstorm12: gottem
Dandinstorm12: Fight?
Gaz_L: they bend the rules of Gwent about as far as they be bent
Dandinstorm12: aren't we supposed to have cavalry?
Dandinstorm12: wait why do they have cavalry?
Gaz_L: Judge! My opponent's playing cards!
Dandinstorm12: Thanks for the question, no further questions
YeetTheRich_: all our horses are stuck on some roof
Dandinstorm12: classic

Gaz_L: remember if that gets to the right you lose
asthanius: the land continues to burn
Kramburger: Wait till you get to the stealth mission
Dandinstorm12: I was expecting more Droopy Dog, and less Gollum, but hey, at least it wasn't Rowan Kenrith
Dandinstorm12: bamboozled
asthanius: It tricked you by making you read cards
Gaz_L: @Kramburger people (including Wheeler) probably think you're joking
YeetTheRich_: wicked tricksy false
Dandinstorm12: it just moves
Kramburger: @Gaz_L Yeah, I thought the game was joking when I started it
Dandinstorm12: or maybe I can't read
5fivecents: Read the card
5fivecents: It moves over unless you hurt i

asthanius: wait did we kill the dude she loves?
asthanius: is he dead?
DarkMorford: Speaking of pissers, do we need a break?
Gaz_L: Wheeler's a busy man, you think he's got time to read all the text on some of these cards, have you seen how many words there are on Yu-Gi-Oh cards?
YeetTheRich_: well about finbert ...
asthanius: I'm assuming they're both 76
Dandinstorm12: one ounce of kindness, got a heart...
Dandinstorm12: guess Wheeler isn't heartless

vellebastet: sykAds
Dandinstorm12: damn, I was gonna wash my segway and everything
djalternative: this is not my gwent
djalternative: my gwent's servers are down
asthanius: It's not theft if you're the queen. It's taxation.
asthanius: press the fast forward button on the VOD
ArcOfTheConclave: our majesty
PharaohBender27: Dang, that's a deep cut
charredspark: comrade
asthanius: squadala
YeetTheRich_: what? why did I get this reference? people remember this song?
PMAvers: "They were busy getting drunk at weddings and wandering the forests looking for treasure."
lordgrond: went to youtube to find a video for the song since I haven't heard it in forever, and of course someone made a 10 hour loop of it...
PMAvers: Nobody yells like Gascon, no one dies like Gascon
asthanius: Optional objective is to kill him
DarkMorford: No one bakes a great big apple pie like Gascon!
YeetTheRich_: duke of dogs is arguably a better job than queen
itsr67: some optional objectives get you things outside the fight or outright win you the game
niccus: mark an absolute unit
YeetTheRich_: lrrSPOT_SG
asthanius: You can just kill the Duke now, right?
superdude097: It's waiting to be played
Dandinstorm12: foolish infantry, stop hiding
Dandinstorm12: You know what this game needs? Sean Bean
asthanius: Shawn Bon
superdude097: Seen Bawn
asthanius: Thronebreaker is afraid of the bald sons
PMAvers: I think the grey'd out ones are the ones you don't have a full playset of yet.
asthanius: pog
asthanius: WHAT
YeetTheRich_: HA!
asthanius: FOR GWENT
YeetTheRich_: HAHA
Kramburger: seabatNogood seabatNogood
YeetTheRich_: we can use this next week! oh wait ... Kappa
asthanius: I just...they gave you a reward for another game...
YeetTheRich_: just pull a maw of sauron and behead him
PMAvers: Somewhere Adam leans in.
snortablecola: damn should've clapped him
ArcOfTheConclave: burning down every city, town and temple is a way bigger war crime than what you just did
AtrusOfMyst: Poozle Goozle
asthanius: go big or go home
asthanius: try killing all the ghouls
YeetTheRich_: you can kill of the big one at any time right? so first kill off the little ones?
j3573rblack: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:45:38.
ArcOfTheConclave: does the kill the strongest card kill all the ones with the same health?
neoshingundam: Protip: You must construct additional pylons! lrrHAM
spiffinn: yeah it might be you have to kill the big one turn 1 and then use the other spell to kill the others?
asthanius: "Yeah chat, turns out the devs didn't code anything past this point, so stream's over"
YeetTheRich_: are ghouls only the small ones?
YeetTheRich_: I mean you would absolutely be right in thinking so ... just wondering what is the out here
PinkfloydYES subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 19 months!
PinkfloydYES: need to do this and figured the wheeler also would be a good one to get to say my name
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, PinkfloydYES! (Today's storm count: 65)
asthanius: In that case, though, you need to save Scorch for the end?
TheBearBee: I remember this puzzle. It a real thinker
asthanius: Yeah idk that's weird
asthanius: Like, the random damage is an issue if you need that
TheBearBee: If I remember correctly the random damage does matter
KharadBanar: is there any way to Scirch their back line?
KharadBanar: Scorch
j3573rblack: yo wheeler, scorch will kill multiple units if their power is the same
spiffinn: ^
asthanius: Okay, so I just read the solution, and it's shit. The cards don't tell you what they actually do
j3573rblack: you do have to kill all their units
asthanius: You need the Ghouls in the back to be the highest and the same
sing_o_muse: unit(s)
sing_o_muse: the (s) is important
asthanius: Who pays attention to (s)?
Lysander_Gustav: Hello folks!
asthanius: Don't Order
Lysander_Gustav: How does this compare to the other Gwent?
Rechonator: could the arbalest hit for 1 there from the back row
KharadBanar: it‘s basically the singleplayer campaign
Lysander_Gustav: neat
asthanius: If you don't use Meve I think it works
Lysander_Gustav: Sort of like a chess adventure game I used to play
sing_o_muse: but you have too right?
ArcOfTheConclave: 1+2+3+2 is 8 so use maive with 1 archer?
Rechonator: archer from back row for 1?
j3573rblack: ayyyyyy
YeetTheRich_: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
Rechonator: nice!
lemmel: FBtouchdown
asthanius: that was needlessly obtuse
asthanius: so much math
KharadBanar: i mean, Gwent is a very arithmetic heavy game
asthanius: good segue
YeetTheRich_: I really enjoyed this
Lysander_Gustav: good night! Thanks for playing!
j3573rblack: g'night wheeler
KharadBanar: so it feels natural to have puzzles like this
Lysander_Gustav: it's artfully mussed
