    Set 11 - True Heroes never turn down a reward
    qfg13032011190314.png

    We spend the rest of the day killing goblins.

    It's a good workout.

    qfg13032011190330.png

    But now it's getting late, and it's time to go claim our reward for freeing the Baronet from his transformation into a godless killing machine.

    qfg13032011190353.png

    Did you crawl into walls a lot as a baby? ...No reason, just curious.

    qfg13032011190450.png

    Kinda weird how these two have been ordered by the Baron to just stand around out here until I show up, and to play a fanfare when I do. I'm not complaining, let the whole world know how awesome we are for all I care!

    qfg13032011190501.png

    qfg13032011190504.png

    I'm so bearyVERY sorry I'm late, Your Arrogance. I'm sorry that I couldn't bring the Kobold's body, nor the cubCLUB of the ogre I had to slay to save you. It's just an Ursa Minor issue, I'm sure you'll agree.

    baronx.png"Not only have you freed the Baronet from enchantment and allowed my son to return to me, but you have renewed my hope that the curse may be lifted. My son, Baronet Barnard von Spielburg, also desires to acknowledge his indebtedness. Barnard."

    qfg13032011190508.png

    baronx.png"Furthermore, I understand you have rid our valley of a dangerous Kobold Magic User in order to free the Baronet von Spielburg. You risked your life to singlehandedly defeat the foul Spellcaster. You are a true hero, and I thank you. Barnard."

    baronet.png"I'm pleased you managed to kill the Kobold."

    baronx.png"I sincerely hope you will continue your valiant adventures in our land. If anyone can rid the land of brigands, it will be you. Someday in the near future, I can envision holding a ceremony in your honor and bestowing upon you the title, 'Hero of Spielburg'. Barnard."

    baronet.png"It would be nice if someone could finally defeat the brigands and claim the title."

    baronx.png"As you leave the castle tomorrow, you will receive the award money"

    Sweet

    baronx.png"...I long ago posted for the safe return of my son, as a token of my thanks. You will, of course, be expected to dine with us and be our guest in the castle tonight."

    Aw yeah this is gonna be awesome

    baronx.png"Do you have any questions?"

    Yeah, how did that moron over there get captured anyway

    baronet.png"I rode off one morning with my men in search of monsters to fight. I got separated from my men when I came across the entrance to the cave. As I entered, the Kobold ordered ME to get out. I informed it that I was Baronet Barnard von Spielburg and heir to the lands and all within. I ordered it to bow before me. Then it cast a spell upon me and I remember very little after that."

    Haha that story will never get old. I'm going to tell it to my children and they'll tell it to their children's children. Hey gramps, what's this I hear about your baby girl? Is she a bear too?

    baronx.png"My beautiful little daughter was stolen away ten years ago by Baba Yaga's magic. She has never been found, despite all the searching that has been done for her."

    I'll have her back to you in the next few days, cool?

    baronx.png"I thought she was lost forever, but you have renewed my hope that I will again have her beside me."

    Yeah, that's me, I'm just a fountain of hope for anybody to drink freely from. Anybody else you seem to have misplaced?

    baronx.png"Yorick was my court jester, a man of infinite jest. He went off to find my daughter. But alas, poor Yorick never returned."

    Well, uh, that's what happens when you send the court jester out to search for your kids in a monster and bandit-infested forest.

    Then he says the brigand fortress is to the south. We eat dinner and go to bed.

    I'm always awkward in these rescue situations. I mean, I saved the guy, but that doesn't mean we have anything to talk about. The whole time was spent in silence, with the rare, "So, uh, what was it like being a bear?"

    qfg13032011190636.png

    We finally got a full night's sleep!

    Which is good, because we were starting to have hallucinations. People turning into bears, what were we thinking.


    EDIT: Shit there were a lot of little mistakes this time. Should be all fixed now

    Yeah, no. But after this game is done, the Hero is pretty pampered by people he meets until the fourth game, when nobody has heard of him and everybody wants desperately for him to go away (except Dr. Cranium).

    Current statistics. Don't have much more to max everything, and I wasn't really trying. The Blue (instead of Red) is because it's night, and however the game works, it causes that effect.

    Just got back from a weekend trip, and I see you're blazing on through(Though actually I half expected you to be on 2 by now, the first game's so short).

    I'm very tempted to take you up on the offer to go through as a Mage. I've never LPed before and my technical skill is probably on the same level as the Fighter's, but damn I do love these games...

    Edit: Also I'm lazy. That's a demerit against me too :p

    New update incoming today. Just needed a break from a lot of things yesterday, since I'm releasing a CD on Thursday and Monday I worked quite a long time.

    Mars, if you want to give it a shot, go for it. Syphyre hasn't ever done anything like this before and he seems to be enjoying it immensely. I know I am.

    The first game is pretty short, but I'm doing frackin' everything in it, for both Magic Users and Thieves.

    Next update relates to the final thieving opportunity in the first game.

    qfg13032011215235.png

    Man, we are going to be training like a hoss today. I blow a lot of our reward money on stamina potions so I don't have to waste the day resting in between fights/climbing/throwing sessions.

    I'll stop your raking after my next approach

    qfg13032011215340.png

    We spend a long time at the GCTZ today

    qfg13032011215433.png

    Here's a quick way to practice dodging. Kill all the goblins except for the last one, and bring his health down so that one more hit will kill him. Then just mash the dodge button for a while. I like to imagine the goblin, who is desperately fighting for the right to survive, is getting really fucking annoyed at this arrogant asshole who just uses him for dodging practice. It amuses me.

    qfg13032011215827.png

    We do this several times until we are constantly killing 8 goblins in a go, while practicing dodging blows.

    We are 2012 for goblins. The Gobpocalypse. Gobageddon.

    qfg13032011220825.png

    All right, close enough for government work.

    qfg13032011220901.png

    qfg13032011220925.png

    We throw a few daggers at him. No, I'm not even joking this time.

    He just sits there with that god damn shit-eating grin on his face.

    We resolve not to pass through this screen again.

    qfg13032011221348.png

    We go ahead and spring for the nice armor. It's heavy but it'll seriously help protect from damage, and it transfers to the new game. It doesn't impact stealth in any way, so there's no reason not to get a damage reduction from it, unless you don't plan on building strength in any way.

    qfg13032011221405.png

    Oho! My favorite time of the day! The... night.

    qfg13032011221417.png

    It's time to break into the Sheriff's house. This is a significantly tougher break-in than the old lady's house.

    The most important thing is having a high lock pick stat.

    qfg13032011221423.png

    Oh there's money. But there's also plenty of chances to die. Dear prudence... won't you come out to play.

    qfg13032011221431.png

    Yoink

    qfg13032011221435.png

    It's important to do this before you open up the safe behind the painting. For... obvious reasons.

    qfg13032011221437.png

    For some reason, the game doesn't assume you want to steal the vase. Well, I do. Vase get!

    qfg13032011221442.png

    A penny stolen is a penny earned, I say. And we stole 3 of them. Bad to the bone.

    qfg13032011221449.png

    qfg13032011221452.png

    The safecracking is the toughest lockpick check in the game, with one exception that I'll point out later. The difference between this one and that, though, is failing enough times on this check will wake up the sheriff, his wife, and his goon, who will promptly arrest you. Pretty sure you only get three tries before they throw you in the back of a paddy wagon.

    qfg13032011221456.png

    We crack it on our second try.

    qfg13032011221458.png

    qfg13032011221500.png

    That right there is a huge dick move.

    Here, I'll take the money. You take care of the bag, 'kay?

    qfg13032011221503.png

    qfg13032011221506.png

    There's no real benefit to replacing things, but it's more Thiefy to cover your tracks a bit, I think. Why advertise that there's been a robbery? Wait until he opens the safe, he'll find out on his own.

    Only one thing left to steal.

    qfg13032011221511.png

    What?! No! I wanted to pick it up, not open it!

    qfg13032011221513.png

    Huh. Not nearly as valuable as I would have imagined. Oh well, I can still earn money another way.

    qfg13032011221732.png

    By being a ringer at Dag-Nab-It and stealing away some of the Chief Thief's infinite treasure hoard.

    Seriously, he doesn't run out of money ever. There is a maximum bet of 51 though. Why is it 51? Why not 50? Why not 52? The world will never know.

    qfg13032011221747.png

    Dag-Nab-It plays like an early Windows 3.1 game. You take your hand position into account, select an angle and how hard to throw, and then click the hand to make the toss. It's really, really easy, no matter how low your Throw skill is. Consider it a missed opportunity for that skill.

    Still, it's a good way to work it up and earn some money at the same time.

    qfg13032011221802.png

    See that precision and accuracy? The blue daggers are mine.

    qfg13032011221804.png

    The red daggers are the Chief Thief's.

    Yeah. He's fucking atrocious at this.

    Hey dude I'm really sorry about your accident, you know with your eye. The one that completely obliterated your depth perception. It sure is nice of the other Thieves to let you stay Chief, though. Even if it is basically a totally symbolic gesture.

    A quick side note here!

    qfg13032011222538.png

    This is the list of passwords to choose from to enter the Thieves Guild. Purple Saurus is the password from the old EGA version of the game. But you wouldn't know that if you hadn't played it.

    Now you know!

    We climb the wall out of town and head out to fight some night monsters, since we haven't had the opportunity yet and we're bursting with stamina potions.

    qfg13032011222616.png

    We actually win a fight with a brigand

    qfg13032011222653.png

    And fight a manta ray

    qfg13032011222755.png

    We get its beard

    qfg13032011222918.png

    I had to walk around for a while before I found a cheetaur. They're fairly tough if you spend a lot of time on the defense. If you aggressively stab its armpit (seen above) they're not too big of a problem, assuming you've built up your stats.

    By the way, cheetaurs are an awesome monster and I'm sad this is the only game they are featured in.

    qfg13032011222931.png

    That must have been a fun job, lopping all those claws off

    qfg13032011222946.png

    Finally we get some rest at Erana's Peace, as per usual.

    qfg13032011223209.png

    Okay, and here's the stats for the end of this update. We're about ready to storm the brigand hideout, the only thing is that our Climbing stat is kind of low. We'll fix that next time, and then begin the assault...

    You're not giving the Chief enough credit. He's actually throwing the game. Win around 5 times in a row, and he'll offer to up the stakes, at which point you can bet higher, I believe up to 500 silver. He'll kick your ass unless you're at a good 60+ throwing. You also get a few points for beating him with a bet above 50 at that point.

    Sometimes the Chief bugs out a bit and doesn't offer the high-stakes game. Try keeping your bets fairly low, maybe sub-20, high bets seem to make him reluctant to scam you.

    This thread has made me start replaying these games. Oh my god. SO good. I played for three hours and forgot to make dinner. Then I was whistling the theme song in bed last night.

    My wife was somewhat amused.

    I'm looking forward to playing the 4th one the most... downloaded all the patches and fixes I could find. There were a lot of them. I don't remember the games being that buggy... but that may be because I was 11 and my dad fixed them for me when something went wrong.

    Hold up let me boot up qfg4 and listen to the (soundblaster version of the) title screen music.

    Oh yeah. That's the stuff.

    QFG4 is so fucking metal

    That's the problem with other LPs, is none of them have the terrorsaurus rex

    The amusing backstory to my terrorsaurus rex is that I literally went through 20-25 minutes of play and -never saw one- then all of a sudden 4 pop up in a row. I was getting frustrated. And yes this is after my stats are nuts and the game knows I can take 'em.

    Also, I haven't played a fighter since the ega version...and I sadly had to read a tip on how to defeat the weapon master in the VGA version. I'll include the description of the annoyance in the next update.

    There's no shame in that. The weapon master is a dick.

    I thought that the terrorsaurus only appears after you reach a certain day in the game. I don't remember it being all that tough either.

    EDIT: Seek and ye shall find. Getting 1000 EXP apparently makes them spawn much more often, as does clearing certain key events. I thought it was odd how I'd always run into them after completing the stronghold. The spawn rates of other difficult monsters are also altered in a similar manner.

    It's not, it's really easy to hit and just lets you rape its face

    Yeah, I think Cheetaurs eventually start spawning during the day.

    Okay, I just finished the first game and took a shitload of screenshots of the ending and final array of puzzles. I told Syphyre I was going to try and do it tonight, but the other update was just too damn huge, and this one is looking to be a little bigger. I'm releasing the CD I've worked to make for the last year tomorrow, so the party sort of takes precedence. But I will try to update if I can.

    If not, FRIDAY. We will finish QFG1 and move on to QFG2.

    Out of curiosity I watched a vid of Erana from Quest for Glory 5 and her voice and presentation were so insufficient for a character who had been built up over 4 amazing games I was actually pretty sad.
