Avernum games have no provision for recording barriers that you can't yet bring down. I use the journal to indirectly record the barriers that we can't break down. In my Journal I record a piece of dialog from a nearby person or a message from a nearby placed special.
When the Mage's skill in Dispel Barrier increases, I use the Journal to tell me where there are barriers that might now be vulnerable to this spell.

Ditto rocks that can be removed by the Move Mountains spell.

We find the source of the bugs within these tunnels.  Time to kill all these things at last...

This game has the worst version of the honeycomb. Two levels and all outdoors with pathways leading out of sight in all directions, it's quite confusing.
Behold! The Drizzle......of DEATH!!!!!! . . . . . . .-visual effect of using powerful spells in Avadon 2 (they're a bit of a letdown compared to their damage)

When they eventually find a piece of ash that they think was you, they bury it with great honor........ -A2CS ending script from portal explosion

Not only that, there's also the whole thing about being unable to attack single enemies without entering combat that I loved from the first trilogy.  Turns it into a slog.

Into the deepest parts of the Honeycomb we go... we're finally about done.

We take a peek to the east of Mertis, and then start our delve into the Spiral to clear it of undead.  Again.

If A4 was not as popular as the other Spiderweb games then there won't be as many people watching the Let's Play. A1 and A2 remakes are new and hot ditto the Avadon games.

Aye I've learned that the hard way by keeping a view on my Analytics page on YouTube.  During A1, 2, and 3, I was getting over 3k views over 30 days.  Since I started A2 however, that's dipped to around 2.5k views over the same time.  Not sure if it's due to A4 not being as popular, it being several months since CS came out causing interest to die down, or me just not being as interesting due to the slog the game is at times, but interest has seemed to wane.

That said, on to the next part, where we check out the region just east of Almaria.

Another early episode due to reasons.

With the gates open once more we head into the city of Almaria.  And it is not in good shape...

We explore a surprisingly large amount of regions in this area.  I suppose there wasn't actually that much there, but some of it was interesting.

A6 has a Haste spell that hastes the entire party, right from the start of the game. This is probably the result of feedback from players of A4 and A5.
