    Update time!

    Bear with me here, I played this part like, a month ago. Still, should be interesting.

    [​IMG]
    So to recap: We're kicking major ass on a strategic level, but haven't yet quite met my goal of bordering all enemy countries simultaneously.
    [​IMG]
    Last update gave us enough xp for some promotions.
    [​IMG]
    Some of which matter more than others.
    [​IMG]
    Frigging ghouls. Too many of em. Argh.
    [​IMG]
    And we stole a couple of extremely powerful units from Esgares.
    [​IMG]
    Of course, those units are in a bad position and need to be recalled to defend us from Leonia, so they probably won't fight for this turn.
    [​IMG]
    Instead, lets send some greener troops to go fuck with Esgares at another castle, since they're toughest guys are licking their wounds and rebuilding their armies.
    [​IMG]
    :yeah:
    [​IMG]
    So, lots of heavy units defending a bridge with a strong as fuck wizard backing them up. Should be easy.
    [​IMG]
    Schutleis can take the bridge solo I'm sure.
    [​IMG]
    Their cavalier wanders off to pick on our wyvern. Which is good, since he's basically just bait anyways. I'm hoping to draw Gish over more though.
    [​IMG]
    Draq shows the fatty lizards who's boss.
    [​IMG]
    And Monstrous Bat makes me question whether or not I should 'upgrade' him into a Phoneix when he hits level 10 or keep him in this form for the kickass petrification.
    [​IMG]
    Was thinking our princesses would be safe there but didn't notice the enemy Hellhound. 127 is a lot of damage for a fairy (Or for Cortina, for that matter)
    [​IMG]
    Kicking ass and taking names.
    [​IMG]
    Well, I did place her here for a good reason though.
    [​IMG]
    Raep tiem.
    [​IMG]
    Hmm, not quite enough.
    [​IMG]
    Only 374 xp. No kills. Hardly a success. Has my fractactical genius failed us?
    [​IMG]
    Nope.
    [​IMG]
    Fairies have a spell called 'React'. It probably doesn't do anything important though.
    [​IMG]
    :M
    [​IMG]
    It certainly couldn't be overpowered bullshit that would let me cripple an army with a single tier 1 spellcaster in one turn.
    [​IMG]
    Ugh, how do you miss a statue? I mean, I could understand if you were trying a flyby shit dropping, but in melee?
    [​IMG]
    Soon we shall have more strong lizard bros.
    [​IMG]
    :hmmm:
    [​IMG]
    This strikes me as not a good thing.
    [​IMG]
    Nice counter hit though.
    [​IMG]
    Thats Geno thunder by the way. Also Not A Good Thing (tm)
    [​IMG]
    Cleve's Titanium bones shrug off the attack, but we've lost our giant bro. :cry:
    [​IMG]
    Well shit.
    [​IMG]
    Yeah that isn't good either.
    [​IMG]
    Was kinda hoping they'd retreat honestly.
    [​IMG]
    Though at least they picked the dumbest possible use of their unicorn.
    [​IMG]
    Cleve will solve everything for us.
    [​IMG]
    Fucking Cleve is going to need to step it up a notch.
    [​IMG]
    Area heal to the rescue. And Draq is in dire need of some rescue.
    [​IMG]
    Was hoping the arrow would take more than half his remaining life. If it only did 84 we won't be able to finish this fucker with just a centaur attack.
    [​IMG]
    Mira's hardly done anything so far, she was at the back of the enemy group when shit went down.
    [​IMG]
    Well, thats not good.
    [​IMG]
    Draq is kind of a total pussy with his boss around.
    [​IMG]
    Well fuck.
    [​IMG]
    Fried lizard on a stick, anyone? The enemy sure likes getting xp by killing shit more than winning battles.
    [​IMG]
    Lame ass bishop only has enough MP for a single area healing spell.
    [​IMG]
    Option 2 is decent as well however.
    [​IMG]
    The screenshot makes this spell look so bad. It's actually pretty cool in motion, considering the platform.
    [​IMG]
    Fried dog goes well with fried lizard.
    [​IMG]
    I'd love to send him in to fuck things up in melee, but thats a bigass agility differential,
    [​IMG]
    So we play it safe instead.
    [​IMG]
    Though being safe doesn't get you very far. Not without a Halo spell anyways.
    [​IMG]
    So, both sides are pretty fucking worn down. We lost a knight already, but Roecod is essentially out of commision too (except his monsters are still around.)
    [​IMG]
    Guess we're going to lose our bait wyvern. :salute:
    [​IMG]
    :retarded:

    Actual luck, on our side?
    [​IMG]
    Guess the cpu doesn't want to see a Mira - Clevian cage match either.
    [​IMG]
    Both spear throw and rock throw work the same way- you can't use them after moving but they cost no mp. I think They both have to hit and damage penalties as well.
    [​IMG]
    Bait Wyvern survives another encounter. Definitely getting a name promotion if it lives to the end of this.
    [​IMG]
    And Johannes fucks up our biggest threat. Things are looking up.
    [​IMG]
    : x
    [​IMG]
    117 damage is nothing for a mighty neanderthal golem.
    [​IMG]
    Schutleis has been pretty boss for this fight too I think, despite the lack of screenshot evidence.
    [​IMG]
    This centaur on the other hand....
    [​IMG]
    :x
    [​IMG]
    Well, free kill for someone else I suppose.
    [​IMG]
    Overkill is the best kind of kill.
    [​IMG]
    Mira starting to look a bit nervous perhaps?
    [​IMG]
    Schutleis can handle this shit all day long.
    [​IMG]
    Orly?
    [​IMG]
    Yeah a critical attack from a little girl with a stick isn't going to cut it here, sorry.
    [​IMG]
    All fear the mighty Gish!
    [​IMG]
    Oh right, no mp. Something about spamming Geno-thunder.
    [​IMG]
    Weaker codexers being held in reserve at the start get to come forward to mop shit up now.
    [​IMG]
    Paralysis would have been so nice here.
    [​IMG]
    Or here.
    [​IMG]
    Where does Cleve get his rocks you might ask?
    [​IMG]
    He prays for them of course.
    [​IMG]
    Physics be damned!
    [​IMG]
    Dragons be damned too!
    [​IMG]
    Fuck you dragon!
    [​IMG]
    :yeah:
    [​IMG]
    Arrows work too.
    [​IMG]
    I swear this guy has killed so many dragons in this LP so far.
    [​IMG]
    Which makes it rather a shame that he's a fairly sub par knight.
    [​IMG]
    Mira is totally outnumbered now.
    [​IMG]
    This could get ugly.
    [​IMG]
    But it doesn't. Not ugly enoguh anyways.
    [​IMG]
    :thumbsup:
    [​IMG]
    Pity we didn't get to kill him, level 21 Wizard is a lot of xp.
    [​IMG]
    We give the last free kill to our Wyvern bro. He earned it.
    [​IMG]
    Some random battle reward level ups I'm sure, only this one didn't get mangled.
    [​IMG]
    Hell yes.
    [​IMG]
    I have no idea what this battle is even going to be like. I'm assuming easy, since Caerleon is basically fucked.
    [​IMG]
    We'll find out next time.

    So, DR, is this LP abandoned or merely on hiatus? I'd love to find out how the country of Iscalio is doing. :salute:

    Just hiatus. I'll try to do an update this week. Too much interesting distracting crap to play lately. But this is still a solid game to LP I think, the only one I ever really abandoned was the SaGa Frontier one, because transcribing the dialog for that was a nightmare, and the feel of the game didn't translate well into screenshots anyways.
    Fafnir and Azira Brofist this.

    I'll get around to it I swear! Probably. If I do do one this week you'd better be fucking grateful for it though. Dragon's Dogma and and the expansion for Binding of Isaac both have me drooling.

    Yeah, sorry about the thumb down up above. I was well and truly drunk last night and apparently acted like a dick. Take your time, I'm just happy this LP isn't completely abandoned. :hug:

    Update Time!

    Just a short one to get back into the groove of things. Next oe shall be longer. Also, some excellent news for this LP: During the long(ish) hiatus some new graphical drivers came out. Every screenshot was perfect this time, AFAICT. So these will be much less work for me weeding out duplicates and much higher quality for you with no important shit missing. Anyays....



    Battle is afoot!
    [​IMG]
    So our forces consist of some poorly balanced units of mostly low levels...
    [​IMG]
    But the enemy is far more fucked. Well, it was just Caerleon. We'll move our units into position on auto mode since they'll probably just flee in terror anyways.
    [​IMG]
    Caerleon makes the first attack instead.
    [​IMG]
    What fucking moron put a Centaur on the front lines anyways? :embarassed:
    [​IMG]
    Well, they're certainly putting up a decent fight considering how fucked they are. Maybe they're blocked off and can't retreat. In which case we can milk them for all the xp they're worth by killing every last monster.
    [​IMG]
    But first we'll bring our brave shocktrooper into the rearguard so he doesn't die. This map sure is a pain in the ass without predominantly flying or swimming units.
    [​IMG]
    We commence inane bombardment.
    [​IMG]
    I could have gotten Cai too by getting closer, but they could actually pretty much rape to death anything in a hex adjacent to Merriot between Cai, Beauarte and that demon.
    [​IMG]
    So we settle for the slow and steady approach.
    [​IMG]
    Except for this gryphon. Because it's a level 1 n00b and because fuck Merriot. OP bitch.
    [​IMG]
    Hah! Take that!
    [​IMG]
    Their golem takes a chunk out of Gallo this time...
    [​IMG]
    ...but Gallo desperately wants to avoid being relegated to the shit team and tries to show off.
    [​IMG]
    :smug:
    [​IMG]
    Hmm, not too bad. But not jaw dropping either.
    [​IMG]
    Gallo takes an arrow to the knee, which also seems to be severing space itself. I'm pretty sure this is just a game graphical bug though. It's only visible for like 1 frame.
    [​IMG]
    Gallo looking kind of fucked up now.
    [​IMG]
    And this won't help.
    [​IMG]
    This guy is the main reason we have to be cautious even against such meagre troops.
    [​IMG]
    Fucking asshole. I want that spell!
    [​IMG]
    Well I was pretty much expecting this though.
    [​IMG]
    So even though it's bringing our guys pretty damned low,
    [​IMG]
    nobody dies from this.
    [​IMG]
    The gryphon had the most hp to spare.
    [​IMG]
    Though it probably won't be enough against that. Farewell Ser Fodder.
    [​IMG]
    Well I'll be damned. Remind me to name this fucking bird.
    [​IMG]
    We move in some of our heavier hitters to show this pile of rocks how to get shit done.
    [​IMG]
    Yeah, fuck you Clay1C!
    [​IMG]
    Well I'll be damned.
    [​IMG]
    We can't move the rest of our units in now because that fucker is blocking us and we can't attack him, so we settle for healing up the Gryph-bro so he doesn't die before we can pull him back. All praise be to spekkio!
    [​IMG]
    Enemy healer has the same idea it seems.
    [​IMG]
    Except his idea is dumb because we are awesome.
    [​IMG]
    Not exactly the unit I wanted a double level up on, but whatever.
    [​IMG]
    Oh fuck, really? I could have killed this bitch but didn't think they'd run.
    [​IMG]
    We exchange some meaningless parting shots before the battle ends...
    [​IMG]
    But ultimately they all escape.
    [​IMG]
    :x
    [​IMG]
    Still, free victory xp nets us a few levels.
    [​IMG]
    Do any of these people even still watch this lp?
    [​IMG]
    I should have named like 6 different units Azira or something. There's an idea. In honour of bumping the shit out of this thread, Azira can name that gryphon whatever he likes. I should have done something like that for the names from the start.
    [​IMG]
    So, glolious victoly is ouls.
    [​IMG]
    Err, pretend I didn't post this one. We'll fix this in the next battle.
    [​IMG]
    Or the battle after the next battle apparently.
    [​IMG]
    This should be a lot more significant.
    [​IMG]
    Not too shabby. Pity he's missing 30 levels of monsters we stole from his country.


    [​IMG]

    Azira will get to see some action in the next update, along with procrastinator. Although, you can hardly see his unit here (assuming he recalls what it is.)
