Earthenone: tech issues? trying to remotly play a boardgame? the devil you say
johnalogue: @RandomTrivia infinite content!
PharaohBender27: @Mister_BlueSky Eh, there have been a lot of times a stream starts five minutes late
Sarah_Serinde: It hasn't even been 5 minutes yet, don't worry about it
Mister_BlueSky: I have movies that came out like 15 years ago that I keep going "I should watch that". I never do. >_>
RockPusher: Earthenone they're cultists, not satanists lrrBEEJ
Earthenone: the early access square will be harder to check since some games that were added in early access to the list ar probobly released by now :P
Sarah_Serinde: Also I want to say that W+P was originally 3 hours, it's just been 2 for a while now
DigitalSeahorse: Mister_BlueSky oh hai mister165Tailswave
ContingentCat: They've played Root a few times remotely so that's probably fine, but any number of tech things can be having troubs

DeM0nFiRe: lrrSIG
ReploidArmada: My one problem with Root as a board game is that the Vagabond is a broken concept
ReploidArmada: I've heard Oath is good, but I have not played it
ReploidArmada: Vagabond is too often left to do its own thing, at which point it just wins.
serramarkov: lrrSHINE Thank you! lrrSHINE
ContingentCat: Does Oath have adorable animal characters too?
saucemaster5000: yes, sorta -- same artist
CururuGuasu: Vagabond serves a purpose as a kind of timer for the game. Will eventually steamroll and win
ContingentCat: oh good
notso_surprisingreveal: @ReploidArmada but thats what I love about this game. The Vagbond plays the role of the 'coach' typically hard to deal with in coop games (despite this being a very not coop :P)

hexy_lexy: hey all you beautiful friends who i love and adore beyond measure!!!!! <3
saucemaster5000: yeah, the vagabond is fairly strong (like playing darklings in terra mystica) -- the designer originally imagined this game more like Cosmic Encounter with like 50 classes, in which case the vagabond wouldn't always be in there...

RaklarLS: this game is like a fighting game in the sense that you learn your one character/faction and maybe 3 months later you try to pick a second one once you know all the matchups.

BrowneePoints: Yep! was kickstarted back in 2019 and is just about ready to ship
BloodnBullets: id be keen to watch a dicefriends of that
Williams4jesus: I like the online version because it eliminates user errors.
ContingentCat: huh cool, yeah a dice friends campaign in this world would be cool
LordZarano: What's the lizard cult's goal?
BrowneePoints: Right? As much as they've played Root, I think a Root Dice Friends would be super cool
dragonthing7: that seems like a really cool idea
BloodnBullets: it does require discarding the card to score, which is one of the few ways lizards discard
LidofLoathing: blessed martyrs!
Izandai: It's not fighting, it's murder!
CaptainSpam: Less "combat", more "remove from play".
saucemaster5000: it should be noted crossbowing does not get the vagabond points as opposed to fighting

BloodnBullets: @Mr_Bitterness its where they can do special actions with their acolytes at the start of their turn. Like converting enemy troops or buildings, or going to war.
saucemaster5000: at least you're legitimate
LoadingReadyRun: lrrPAUL Vagabond: Don't blame me, I murder everyone!
Mr_Bitterness: @BloodnBullets Oh, so their Conspiracy actions can only be used in the Outcast clearings?
ContingentCat: words are hard
MinnieKin: My friends and I played this, and they told me it is the boardgame of Mario Party. Destroying friendship. I lost three friends that day T^T
Mr_Bitterness: Thanks for the explanation!
saucemaster5000: Heh. @MinnieKin my board game group played this for like two months till we all admitted we just liked the idea of root more than any of us enjoyed playing.
MinnieKin: @saucemaster5000 Yeah, we really loved the politics of it xD We were better friends after this game than after a game of Commander tho xD
RandomTrivia: How will you make a post? There's no wood in this forest! lrrBEEJ
MAPBoardgames: This is one of the closest games of Root I've seen
JadedCynic: PLS ignore me, Sempai!!! O_o
BloodnBullets: @Mr_Bitterness Yes, with the exception that one action is to move and battle, and they can move FROM an outcast clearing to battle anywhere
RonaldMcDownload: "This set of moves was good enough for my grandpappy, and by gum...!"
RandomTrivia: Wow
JadedCynic: "Well? We're WAITING"
RandomTrivia: WOW Paul
PharaohBender27: Yep, that scans. There's bluejays that have come to expect peanuts from my folks at this point :p
LittleVesuvius: Chat has borked itself for me, is Twitch doing a goof?
RandomTrivia: Looks fine from here, LittleVesuvius
ContingentCat: My parents house it's Grakles that are awful, they're so loud and they freak out whenever there's a cat outside
LittleVesuvius: Mk it's my Twitch that's borking
PharaohBender27: @LittleVesuvius Fine on my end. Try refreshing?
lirazel64: Male hummingbirds are *super* aggressive.
LittleVesuvius: @LittleVesuvius Pretty sure it's my internet. It doesn't love Twitch
LittleVesuvius: Ty for confirming my Twitch is the problem lol
BloodnBullets: the cult vs alliance is an interesting dynamic, since the cultists just spring up all over the place they dont often trigger outrage, but they also have a hard time clearing sympathy and are vunrable to revolts.
PharaohBender27: @ContingentCat Huh. TIL about a bird I'm unfamiliar with (I looked it up, and chances are I've either never seen one or seen very few and not known what they were, because the map on Wikipedia indicates I've spent most of my life in the slice of North America where they *aren't* :p )
MAPBoardgames: One thing that is wierd about Root is many of the factions earn more VP if the other players are activly attacking them.
Easilycrazyhat: What?!
lirazel64: @contingentcat I love Grackles, though. They're so pompous
BloodnBullets: @MAPBoardgames how so? i feel like most have a change to run away with it if they arent attacked
BloodnBullets: chance*
Alex_Frostfire: I once spooked them off the bird feeder at the family cottage... and then was giggling since I could hear the whole swarm foraging around in the leaves in the neighbouring lot.
saucemaster5000: @MAPBoardgames yeah, its why one of the weirdest strategies that demolishes the woodland alliance is to just ignore them
LittleVesuvius: What is the bird group's makeup?
MAPBoardgames: @MAPBoardgames For example, the Cat's buildings are more expensive they more they have. Crush a few and they can rebuild them for more points.
sormaxdol: It's the crew!!!!!
sormaxdol: I missed my favourite canadians
BloodnBullets: @MAPBoardgames But those more expensive buildings are worth more points
sormaxdol: Is Ian playing the politician game and paying someone to beat him up but then suing that person double what he payed them?!
daredewley92: i love Root!!!
RandomTrivia: Ben LUL
chaostreader: Cam is in a decent position but needs to get to the other bunny clearing or have one of the bunny roosts destroyed to build next turn.
daredewley92: i bought a copy cuz of LRR, thanks y'all
MAPBoardgames: @MAPBoardgames But claiming another clearing to get more building slots is often much more expensive (in action count)
BloodnBullets: Cam has come back well after those early turmoil
RandomTrivia: lrrFINE
sormaxdol: Amendment 1: EVERYTHING IS FINE! ALWAYS!
Kaorti: we call it "the state of the union address"
daredewley92: i love the birbs because of the high risk high reward engine builder style
MAPBoardgames: Chapter 3, Section 7: Do combat.
satyropodobny: fun fact: when playing birds your dynasty can be deposed if you run out of soldiers to recruit in the supply
LittleVesuvius: dang
LittleVesuvius: TIL
RonaldMcDownload: I specifically said I did not
MAPBoardgames: Viva la revolution!
JadedCynic: whups
SquareDotCube: Still on 480p, Cam?
Alex_Frostfire: Yeah, when you start to run out, you really need to focus on throwing some soldiers away for the glory of the dynasty.
DarkMorford: @SquareDotCube VGA, my dude!

dragonthing7: owl is still here?
RandomTrivia: https://i.imgur.com/Lil4Y69.gif @DarkMorford
saucemaster5000: it happens surprisingly often
BloodnBullets: the alliance gets quite dangerous with 3 officers, they can recruit > move > turn that troop into sympathy to start scoring points even when spreading sympathy is expensive
MAPBoardgames: You don;t control the clearing you are moving from or two
saucemaster5000: yeah, but it only works next to their bases so as an endgame strat it's tough to set up
MAPBoardgames: to*
BloodnBullets: you have to rule at least one end of the move
MAPBoardgames: The stupid cult's rule rule. Hate it.
BloodnBullets: "would be" doesnt matter unfortunately
saucemaster5000: wow
kookaburra_85: planned obsolescence of dudes
BloodnBullets: the ol' argument of "everyone else is worse"
satyropodobny: the owl just JuliusCezared the council
MAPBoardgames: See @BloodnBullets , if the other players crushed a roost in a rabbit clearing, the birds would've gained 5VP
BloodnBullets: i would be so down for more root streams
Mr_Bitterness: First you gotta get to Regionals
CompSciJedi: Yes, there is. It was on KS and I almost backed it
dragonthing7: yes there is, i had to go look it up
MrTheWalrus: The Rootiverse?
Kaorti: The mouseguard system is good, but badly explained
BloodnBullets: @MAPBoardgames true, but thats not always the case
Kaorti: Luke Crane is a ... character.
saucemaster5000: mouse guard is soo good! One of the first tabletop rpgs that got me away from the finickiness that is D&D
JadedCynic: yeah, ian - even some 'passive media' about it <3
mizzytastic: I love mouse guard, but I definitely think that to play a game in the burning wheel family you need to be taught by someone else first, reading the rules first time is a wall
JadedCynic: YES!
saucemaster5000: that is 100% true @mizzytastic
I_Am_Clockwork: my friends and I once used the end state for a game of Root to set us up for a root-esque rpg game
LidofLoathing: wait there's what?
LidofLoathing: I'll have to check that out
PharaohBender27: So would lrrKATHLEEN 's character be the Yojimbo character here, being a vagabond?
JadedCynic: IKR, I saw that and thought "Ian will already know about this'
RonaldMcDownload: Lupin Heist sounds rad, actually
JadedCynic: heck, ANY heist kind of rpg would be kinda fun...
DoodlestheGreat: Root's more like Nilsson Groundthumper than Usagi Yojimbo. That's a different Stan Sakai title.
damn_i_am_pretty: Blades in the Dark modded into Lupin?
ContingentCat: wow
JadedCynic: DAMMIT IAN, how am I supposed to sleep tonight?!?
Kaorti: BitD would be wonderful
Kaorti: Or Spire!
Sogheim: Lupin needs more corgis, then
JadedCynic: oh YES, Paul <3

saucemaster5000: Lol, blades in the dark lupin "so player how did you set up this heist to make everyone else look like a total rube?"
ContingentCat: yeah a Lupin reskin of Root would be cool
Sogheim: the art for Humblewood is amazing
PharaohBender27: @DoodlestheGreat Oh whoops, I heard "Yojimbo" and thought lrrIAN was referring to the Akira Kurosawa film chatacter :p
RonaldMcDownload: What book was Ben showing off? I missed it
HadesLeprechaun: Leesha Hannigan was the artist that started Humblewood, and the art is fantastic
iris_of_ether: I just kicked this, because _Pretty_: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/exaltedfuneral/herbalists-primer
BloodnBullets: does the pigeon bonuses for shitting on statues?
JadedCynic: It IS quite good <3
Sogheim: I adore tiny owl knights
coolbond: @bengineering sounds like you need to do a campaign for it on stream
JadedCynic: Omar Sy has...charm :D
saucemaster5000: @jadedcynic by which you mean I blush a bit when he smiles onscreen?
JadedCynic: heh, *I* blush when he smiles :D
mitomanox: series nowadays take so many turns i stop caring about them
GamemasterAnth: Not familiar with Lupin. More familiar with Dupin.
lirazel64: @gamemasteranth I see your Poe and raise you a Poirot.
JadedCynic: Arsene Lupin - french 'gentleman thief' literary character. kinda bigger than Biggles or Raffles
MAPBoardgames: If history has taught me anything is that governments can just print money until they are out of debt. lrrBEEJ
JadedCynic: seeing as the latter two never got anime interpretations
BloodnBullets: commander so good
DarkMorford: @JadedCynic Lupin also got to star in a Persona game. :p
JadedCynic: ooh!
BloodnBullets: this game is so close
JadedCynic: I have too little free time to give SMT or Persona games their due attention, so thanks for adding to my knowledge, @DarkMorford
LordZarano: Radians is Turns*2pi
kookaburra_85: I want that money is my answer to "so why are you applying for a job at this company"
MAPBoardgames: 30 with a hard-stop, I believe.
MAPBoardgames: Break her stuff!
daredewley92: LRR plays Root is some of my all time favorite content ngl
BloodnBullets: 7 acolyes is a lot
DarkMorford: @JadedCynic Specifically, Arsene is the initial Persona of the player character in Persona 5, and the whole game leans a lot into the "gentleman thief" narrative.
Perivale: Reality is what the birds believe it to be
RockPusher: gibb Baxter nuggies
ContingentCat: Baxter requires nugs
MAPBoardgames: Aren't chicken nuggies banned in Cam's empire?
lirazel64: @kookaburra_85 I always told interviewers who asked about my career plans, "I want to go to Heaven when I die."
DarkMorford: Is Baxter screm?
JadedCynic: @JadedCynic ohhhh, I *really* don't want to lengthen my 'to do' list :D
PharaohBender27: Who will win!? lrrKATHLEEN , the Vagabond, lrrBEN of the Lizard Order, lrrCAMERON the Eyrie, or will lrrIAN of the Woodland Alliance make a comeback? Find out after these messages!
MAPBoardgames: Stick around for the exciting conclusion of Root!
SkylerRingtail: I doubt there will be time for a second game, yeah?
Mr_Bitterness: Yeah, I have a guess that either Kathleen wins this turn or Ben does
LoadingReadyRun: @SkylerRingtail nope
daredewley92: the thing ben said where he was like "every time i play this game i wish i could play more" i felt that for sure
Molladia: @daredewley92 I'm like that with Dominion

incredulouspasserby: wow that is....profoundly bad
Manae: Flagrantly cheat, literally can't damage the final boss anyway
KWardJenx: Thus proving cheaters never prosper.
JadedCynic: Ian? TSR don't exist - I'm not even sure Jim Ward even remembers the Catacomb games (or WANTS to)
PharaohBender27: And the entry if you win is . . . kind of a weird downer

KWardJenx: Thank you LRR!

JadedCynic: thanks for the fun!
ContingentCat: thanks all lrrHEART
PharaohBender27: @KWardJenx Except I got the impression that someone playing by that book's rules ALSO wouldn't prosper - someone was saying they'd read the only way to win is to go through multiple times, memorize everything, and then do a run where you just beeline for what you need
PharaohBender27: @KWardJenx And that book pulls a *lot* of BS on you.
Juliamon: That's not even including the part where they put the WRONG PAGE NUMBER for the "GOOD" ending
Manae: @PharaohBender27 And then you STILL need the dice to roll your way a LOT to have any hope
PharaohBender27: @Juliamon Oh right I somehow forgot about that bit
Molladia: now to go watch garbage day
PharaohBender27: @Molladia 'Twas a good Garbage Day :)
Juliamon: So if you didn't have a digital copy you could ctrl-f, you basically had to read through every page hoping to find the ending
Juliamon: because it wasn't even off by a little, it was an *entirely different* section of the book
PharaohBender27: @Juliamon Honestly, trying to go through that book without ctrl+f ability even without the egregious error seems like it would be such a pain
JadedCynic: It's kinda sad that those products were a result of the 'twilight' of TSR as an independent company, and just kinda fell through the cracks for editing and polish (which would include *balancing*) - AFAICT, the game was literally written by the author, handed to an 'editor' who simply skimmed through and played 'match the licensed art on file to the story' do a little typesetting and send it to the printers. lrrAWW These things *could* have been much fun...
PharaohBender27: @JadedCynic "OK, so I have five different bookmarks for page 81, which one am I trying to go back to?"
JadedCynic: I mean, despite all the silly things and all the errors and whatnot, I distinctly remember Adam hollering at the top of his lungs "This book is AWESOME" at least twice :D
DeM0nFiRe: He also said "FUUUUUUUUUUUCK" at the top of his lungs to be fair
PharaohBender27: Good advice, lrrPAUL
