Unfortunately, I've run out of backlog, and won't be able to record more until the weekend.  Normally this doesn't happen, but the last couple weeks have been somewhat rough.  Appologies for this.

This might seem like a silly request but I'd appreciate it if you, at some point, went back and labelled your videos by "Scenario X Part Y" or whatnot. This is a pretty impressive effort and I wouldn't mind going through a bunch of it eventually but I also want to know what I'd be looking at if I jumped around in episodes.

And, finally, what about losing an 80% chance of 1-15 + 20 points of protection from damage? (It's a shield, so it has only an 80% chance of protecting.) Well, the average protection per blow is 22.4. That's not nothing, but again, we have to figure out exactly how consequential that actually is.

Also to pick on Kelandon from much earlier in the thread, it actually stops an average of 14.8 damage because bonus values for armor don't work the way they claim to. ;)

Strengthens my point even more, I suppose.

 

Uh, how do the bonus values actually work?

The exact same way as the base protection does, so a "1-15 + 20" shield actually blocks 1-15 + 1-20 if it takes effect.

Not silly at all.  I've considered it, and the main reason I haven't done it is because it would make the titles ridiculously long.  And it's already pretty damn long.

 

Time to enter this fortress, and find what we want stealthily...

Shipwrecked wasn't ever properly finished. I do believe it's perfectly finishable, though you'd probably be better off taking a party that finished Canopy or Bahssikava into it - I thought the recommended level was 70, but I got it confused with Seletine's other scenario.

If you want to complete the grove quest, visit with a character with Arcane Lore 15, then return to Danor.

Yes.

The Dark Cave is obnoxious but only required for a sidequest. If you want to do it, you should bring energy potions and do as much as possible hasted in combat mode.

Since you insisted. ;) Honestly, winning obnoxious outdoor encounters like this one is hard, since you have to go into them without anything in the way of buffs other than Enduring Barrier, and (as you saw) you start out in a position to potentially get wiped out in the first round. Having a few of the good buffing potions (heroic brew, potion of invulnerability) on hand can help with situations like this, as can daily abilities like the ones from... Natural Warrior / Divinely Touched? It's been most of a decade since I last played BoA... as can throwing down Arcane Shield lv3+ to make some of your people invulnerable and hoping that the AI wastes attacks on them.

When the number of monsters reaches the amount and lethality that they can down three of you in one round and you can't even down ONE in the same amount of time, that's too powerful in my opinion.

 

We arrive upon an island on which there was a mysterious murder.  And we are to find the murderers!
