We take a look at the tunnels beneath the regions around Patrick's Tower.  I'm sure there's some interesting things here.

Yeah this episode is kinda short... but thanks to deaths, poor saving, and illness, I do what I can.

I reserve the eighteenth slot for a special save, one used before I go into an unknown dungeon. If entering the dungeon turns out to be a fatally bad idea, I might learn this only after using the Quick Save a few times.

Quite different from me.  I never use quicksave.  Normally I have one save slot, and if I go into an area with no way back I make a second save slot until I get out of it.  For this LP however, I have about 12-15 save slots, moving to a different one at the end of each episode.  That way if I screw up a recording I can go back to the right point to fix it.

Into Gnass we go.  Sorry the episode is so short, but the illness is still in me.  The things I do to keep to a schedule...

So Rentar's got her only way in protected, eh?  We can get through!  She's protected by pylons?  Uh.... is there another way?

Actually, this isn't as bad as I thought.  It's actually a bit more fun, avoiding the pylons this way and figuring the way through.

The game *should* end soon. A6 can end before you have done all the quests and exploration.
A4 has 168 zones but an eighth of them have a null zone script hence not much is happening in those zones.

Heh.  I am a completionist who tends to do everything.  All things considered I basically have the Abyss and Northwestern tunnels left.

And... uh... I think maybe I encountered a bug of some sort...

Is a given area a dead end or is it a possibly interesting part of an unexplored area?
For a quick peek at such an area you can alter av4floorster.txt.
for "fl_blockage_type1 = #;" (where # is not zero) change it to read:
fl_blockage_type1 = 0;
Ditto with "tr_blockage_type1 = #;".
Rename av4floorster.txt to av4floorsteraa.txt. Then save the altered version of av4floorster.txt as av4floorster.txt.
To resume normal playing go into Windows Explorer, or whatever, and rename the altered av4floorster.txt to av4floorsterbb.txt. Then rename the original av4floorsteraa.txt back to av4floorster.txt. Quit the game then restart it.
