[Let's Play]World of Xeen: Part 16: Wizards and Werewolves

I've always enjoyed reading various Let's Play excursions into madness, and so I thought it only fair to delve into the madness a bit myself. What better game than one of my favorite RPGs of all time, from whence I got my forum name? Let's play...
Might and Magic IV and Might and Magic V

Click the spoiler to view a map of the Cloudside of Xeen. You can easily follow along where the party goes.


You said "game", yet the title lists TWO. Are you a liar?
Yes! But not about this. Might and Magic IV and V are respectively Clouds of Xeen and Darkside of Xeen. However, they were always intended to played together. When installed on the same hard drive, they, in a fashion not unlike Voltron, form one bigger game.

Tell me more...
These games were developed way back in the year 1993 by the now defunct New World Computing. Part of the once glorious line of Might and Magic games, they were technically sequels to Might and Magic I-III, in that they do conclude the overarching storyline from those games, but zero knowledge of those games is actually required. The plot is quite self-contained.

If you'd like to learn more before you commit to the thread, you can Google it. Removing links until I'm sure I can post what I posted.

I see. But this game looks... old. Why even play it?
For it's time it was groundbreaking in the graphics, diversity of enemies, and enormous world to explore. I believe it stands the test of time very well.

How does it compare to Oblivion?
I should smack you for asking. This is an old school RPG. Everything is turn based. You control an entire party of six members. There is also no silly "leveling" of creatures. If you wander off too far, you will be crushed into a tiny pulp.



With that out of the way, let's begin!

xeen001.png
Our opening title. We will, of course, be starting on the Clouds side of Xeen. We are treated to an opening cinematic. A strange tower rests alone in a dark lake...


xeen002.png
This place seems rather isolated. We zoom in on the window...


xeen003.png
Apparently someone lives here!


xeen004.png
Crodo: I am Crodo, Overseer of the land known as Xeen. Many years have passed since the glory days of King Burlock...

King Burlock's Head: I am the king!

Crodo: ...when times were good and there was must rejoicing.

Crowd (sounding rather bored): Yaaaay.

Crodo: But now, imprisoned in this enchanted tower, by the sinister, self proclaimed Lord Xeen...

Lord Xeen: Mwhahahahahaha!

Crodo: ...I am unable to help you in these dark times. It is now up to you, adventurers, to right what has been wronged!


That means YOU!
This game requires a party of six. I am now looking for volunteers. Specifically I require...

One Barbarian (preferably Half-orc)
One Paladin (preferably Human, Half-orc, or Dwarf)
One Ninja (preferably Dwarf or Gnome)
One Ranger (preferably Human, Half-orc, or Dwarf)
One Cleric (preferably Gnome)
One Sorcerer (preferably Elf)

Fairly specific, I know, but I need a decent party, right? Right? Feel free to give a name, a gender, an appearance (ha!), and a personality. I'll do my best to accommodate.

Will you be doing good or evil?
You kids and your morale choice systems. There is not really a way to play this game other than stupidly heroic, so that's how we'll be doing things. However, the stupid-to-heroic ratio is open to change.

I live!

    Barbarian?

    Ninja?

    What the fuck is wrong with you?


    Barbarians are terrible. TERRIBLE. You should be ASHAMED. They might have more HP than Knights (Do they? I'm a little fuzzy on barbarians, other than THEY SUCK), but they can't wear armor better than Robes. Which means that they'll get hit by EVERYTHING. Go with a Knight. Honestly.

    Ninjas aren't as good as Robbers for... well.. robbing, and I don't think they can wear as heavy armor. But that's just a small problem with your build.

    Rangers are nice in theory, but they don't get as much MP if my memory serves me correctly. However, the extra Cleric spells could come in handy, but I always liked packing as much magical artillery into my party as possible.

    My optimum build was always:

    Knight
    Paladin
    Robber
    Cleric
    Sorcerer
    Archer


    I made DAMN sure my sorcerer always went first in combat (Every speed bonus went to my sorcerer), because later on those spells are NASTY. Star Burst, anyone? Dancing Sword?

    I'd also do the occasional

    Knight
    Paladin
    Paladin
    Robber
    Archer
    Archer

    build so I could launch a full barrage of missile weapons. They didn't last nearly as long, though, and were essentually hard mode.

    But I'll take the Male Elf Sorcerer slot, name MechMantis. Someone needs to provide the voice of snarky reason in the party. :P
    EDIT: Use the hooded elf portrait for me, would you?

    To the OP: keep your classes. Do not listen to this.

    Barbarians get more attacks per round than anyone, which is heavily understated in the manual (which contains an error). Also, the base AC of an item is severely dwarfed by magical properties later on. Ninjas get more attacks than Robbers, and Rangers are the catch-all for Pathfinding and backup spells.

    (I always named my Ranger as Veritas, hint hint).

    ...I forgot about that. My bad. Ignore my rant.

    EDIT: Although in my defense: Rangers have the same amount of MP as Paladins and Archers, which is hardly enough for Day of Sorcery/Day of Protection, if they even get those spells. (Again, memory fuzzy, haven't played with a Ranger in my party for ages)

    Veritas has it exactly right. The number of levels to gain a new attack is perhaps the most vital statistic in the game. At level 100 Barbarians have 25, whereas Knights have only 20. It makes an enormous difference.

    The same holds true for Ninjas. More attacks than Robbers. While it's true their Thievery isn't quite as good, the skill goes up something like +5 per level, so after a few levels the difference is completely negligible, especially considering the bonus certain races get to the skill anyway.

    As for the barrage of arrows, in truth powerful bows are rather hard to find, and never all that great. Ranged weapons, unlike melee, only get a single attack per round, period. So you'd a bow that was 25x (!) the strength of your melee weapon to get the same effect.

    LP is coming together. I'd love a few more volunteers to take characters, but if not, we'll just go ahead with stand-ins :)

    Can't you do a weapon quickswitch? I seem to recall spamming arrow attack while the enemies marched forward square by square and then switched to melee when/if they got too close.

    I always like to get a good mix of races with the classes I picked. It's boring to do mostly humans or some such, because I think races do have an effect on some quests later on (although that might be M&M2 I'm thinking).

    Of course, the way to win is to just find the most powerful temp buffs and level as fast as possible. No one who really knows the game ever goes into combat without first exploiting the fountains here and there. That "strategy" never jived with me for some reason.

    God, I love the Might and Magic (and Wizardry) games. I probably played M&M2 for hundreds of hours, and I to this day don't know how it ends. HOW THE CRAP DID YOU FREE THE FREAKING UNICORN? I KNEW HIS NAME!

    I personally request that the barbarian be named Hemlock, human and female, as that was my longstanding front-liner in M&M2.

    I vaguely remember that at some point in the postgame or maybe late endgame it seemed like characters would level up and have their to-hit roll wrap around suddenly, after which point they'd go from hitting 80-90% of the time to whiffing nearly every single attack. Was I imagining things, or did this happen to anyone else?

    HOWEVER, against some of the nastier enemies without ranged attacks, arrows are a godsend. Granted you need to play the two-step for awhile in order for them to be much use, but if you had the space to do it, you could drop some pretty powerful enemies without taking a hit. Barkman on the Darkside comes to mind.

    That's true. Don't worry, everyone who CAN use a bow, WILL use a bow. Never hurts to soften people up, after all.

    Still need a Cleric. I've got a few things to do, but update will likely go up tonight. If I don't get a Cleric, then *I'll* be the Cleric, and we'll clear Vertigo tonight. I hear they have a pest problem...

    It might have been the break from Clouds to Darkside.

    Darkside is far far more nasty. Monsters are so much stronger it's not even funny.

    It feels like there's a huge gap between everything before Sandcaster and everything after Sandcaster. Once you can kill those armodillos (or something else, I just remember that they're armored) you're fine, but if I remember correctly they're the first enemies to have hp in the thousands.

    Let's Play World of Xeen
    Part 1: Welcome to Vertigo!

    Our adventure begins! We start off in Lady Geraldine's Tavern. As per the manual's description, the characters have come here because they each shared an identical dream.
    In the dream, the wizard Crodo appeared to them. He told that King Burlock had recently had his long-lost brother, Roland, returned to him. Roland had told him of a magical artifact, the Sixth Mirror. Each city in Xeen has a magical mirror, allowing teleportation, but the Sixth Mirror is special: it travels with the user. The power of such an artifact is obvious. Recently, Burlock had become obsessed, and Crodo was suspicious of Prince Roland.

    One night, Crodo spied on Roland, only to discover that he was merely posing as the lost Prince. In truth, he was an undead thing name XEEN. Xeen locked Crodo in the tower, and so Crodo had sent out the dream, hoping that the powerful smithies of Newcastle could forge a weapon to destroy Xeen.

    Just one problem: none of our heroes are from Newcastle. Then, days later, Newcastle was destroyed by a comet from the sky. None survived. Our heroes realized they might be the only ones who knew what to do. So, they gathered their meager possessions, and banded together for the greater good!

    006tl.png
    "Hello, travelers!"

    We roll up our character stats here. It is random dice each roll, so it takes a few rolls to get decent stats for everyone.

    Notes
    Let me know what you guys think of the format. I went with small images because I ended up with 50+ of them, and that was cut down quite a bit. It's a little hard to show the flow of travel in this game.

    Also, given that this is an RPG, there are lots of stats all around. Let me know if there is any specific information (gear, etc.) you'd like to stay updated on.

    Buy it from GOG.com, and run the installer.


    That's all you need to do. Unfortunately, it's not the CD version, so you don't get all the fancy voices.

    Corak, that was fantastic. Quite humorous.

    Now I really want to buy these from GOG.

    I too am most entertained at the antics of the party, the short half orc thing is hilarious. Was I just too late for the Paladin? I didn't see anyone else grab it, guess I just missed it. At least my guy isn't REALLY a gnome IC right? ... Right?

    Sorry, I edited in my hand as paladin in one of the first posts.


    Also enjoying it! Good ol' Spectre needs to learn some spells. Light is...handy, but he could probably use Cure Wounds. ;p

    Great first installment. Shame I missed out on a party spot.

    I got the game to run incredibly easily, actually. I'm almost waiting for some big problem to come along. I just loaded up DOSBox and off it went. Sadly, I don't have the CD version anymore, but you guys can't hear the voices anyway, and I remember most of them from when I originally played this years ago.

    Oh, he's a Gnome. I needed a Gnome for the party, and orcs are lousy casters beside. So you get a racially confused Gnome :)

    Sorry about that. Had to take them on a first come, first served.

    Well, I knew he was technically a gnome in the game, rather I meant he's just a short half orc in the lets play IC (like were saying he's a half orc even if he isn't for stats purposes)

    I think we're saying he's a racially confused gnome, because it's funny. But you thinking that he's really a half-orc makes it better.

    A bump, but not a shameless one. I have part 2 completed, but I'd rather not post it on the same page and force people to load all that if not necessary.
