Outwitting, Outfighting, and Backstabbing Everyone! Hawkwing Plays The Sci-Fi Roguelike Deckbuilder Griftlands

Fights usually don't dump everything on you for the first two turns, so I think working around Faulty Armor shouldn't be too bad.

Weird to think Engage is coming out in less than two weeks. I still have no idea whether I'll go in blind or wait until we get more reviews and word of mouth.

Personally, I was rather on the fence, but at this point I think I'm going to bite again and get it on release. The loads of preview footage we've gotten have done the trick to assuage some of my greater worries. Then again, story and characters were never two of those, so my case is different from others.

I'd say you've been doing a good job spreading the word about the game. You're the Patron Saint of Berwick Saga, after all. Never mind that you had the username years before the game was translated.

You know, it's funny you mention the username, seeing how it originated in Team Fortress 2... A game where I literally made a "play Berwick Saga" sign. I straight up murder people with a Berwick advertisement.

One of my better ideas, if I do say so myself.

If you haven't already played this game, do so. The Henry Stickmin Collection is legitimately one of the funniest games I've ever played.

I can recommend them as well, it's fucking great.

I really wish I knew what I was going to say there.

But sure. Bagman.

... I really need to reread the Kagasaga Let's Plays. There were so many running gags and storylines and it feels like I forgot half of them.

I really went crazy with those two. I feel you can kinda tell in Sun God's Wrath that I was getting a bit tired of it, but I think I peaked with those two.

Spain is in a weird position in Sid Meier's Pirates. They have the strongest military in the game, as well as the most territory in several of the starting eras, and are generally wealthy... which in practice means that they're overextended with cracks in their defense, so their treasure fleets are a prime target for pirates, which is the entire point of the game. Oh, and you can capture those powerful warships and use them yourself if you can pull it off. There are some eras where their fleet strength is a serious threat and they're better fortified, but on the flip side it means that if a nation is at war with Spain, you'll have plenty of targets.

Ah, so we're undone by hubris. Like the real Spain!

As impressive as the technology and science would be to make human feces edible (they contain a ton of bacteria and, well, waste, and despite the memes drinking pee is generally not a good idea in a survival situation) I doubt anybody would willingly eat it. If anything, it would cause an uproar that we're resorting to feeding people literal shit to solve hunger problems. Which explains why the Rise are a thing.

All in all it makes a disturbing amount of sense, doesn't it...

I can neither confirm nor deny that Del is aware of the fourth wall. Which still makes it a good idea to discuss the plan elsewhere.

Then again... This is Del we're talking about, that may not be enough...

Oh God is he behind me right now--

Yep, Sal’s mother was the ringleader of a previous revolt.

Oh God, I had missed that. That's interesting...

As many jokes that could be made with “beat up Veerin to establish your dominance”, I don’t even entertain the idea and talk to him instead.

Yeah, imagine the other Rise walk in on you beating the shit out of their guard. I don't think they'll accept "I was just establishing dominance" as an explanation.

Flekfis is Kalandra’s second in command, and has his own theme. It reminds me of a western standoff, and implies that he’s not someone to mess with.

What's with these bodyguards and having the most threatening themes in the game, seriously...

This is a little random, but you may have noticed that Flekfis is extremely hairy. That is because he canonically has the thickest fur of all the Jarackles. He is literally a fluffy boi.

…Which is weird to say considering Flekfis is one of the older characters in the game.

Well, of cousre. Had plenty of time to grow all that fluff.

I just like that he's sporting a big doggo mustache. I've said it before and I'll probably say it another couple times before all's said and done: I love the alien staches in this game. They're a wonderful little design choice.

When I first saw Wade, I wondered why she was the only Shroke with hair, and why it’s green. Then I realized it was part of her helmet.

Doesn’t stop me from headcanoning that she’s secretly an anime fan and would totally have a crazy colored hairdo if given the chance.

That's 100% weeabo hair. She watches anime, guaranteed. Probably rom-coms, too.

I run into yet another Rise Pamphleteer.

I like this one. Her eyes are really flat and it makes her head look like a pancake.

Malo worked with the system until it turned against him. Making him one of the more grounded Rise members.

HAHAHAHAHA HIS NAME IS LITERALLY BAD IN SPANISH

HE'S BAD

Oh how I love when this happens. Random Spanish words used as names is the best.

It was already apparent, but it seems they don’t have Asimov's laws of robotics in Havaria.

I mean, isn't this already how technology rolls in real life, Asimov or no Asimov?

At least Malo attacked.

Of course he did. He's bad.

With that, all that’s left is the boss fight. After that, we’ll be seeing what else can happen during Rook’s second day.

I wonder who we'll be beset by this time around.

Yes and no. It's not the worst bane to deal with, but as we'll see, it can still be a pain in the butt.

Personally, I was rather on the fence, but at this point I think I'm going to bite again and get it on release. The loads of preview footage we've gotten have done the trick to assuage some of my greater worries. Then again, story and characters were never two of those, so my case is different from others.

After seeing more previews and giving it some thought, it's not going to be a Day 1 purchase for me. I'd like to see some word of mouth regarding the story and characters first, as I wasn't sold on what was revealed through twitter and I know the reviewers were limited in what they could reveal. Looking back, knowing ahead of time that Fates story wasn't good while the gameplay was great helped me set my expectations accordingly, and I feel it personally helped the experience when I dove into the games myself. I still plan on getting Engage sooner than later, as the gameplay looks incredibly fun, and that's the reason I play Fire Emblem in the first place; I just want to know a little more of what I'm getting into on the writing side of things before diving in.

You know, it's funny you mention the username, seeing how it originated in Team Fortress 2... A game where I literally made a "play Berwick Saga" sign. I straight up murder people with a Berwick advertisement.

One of my better ideas, if I do say so myself.

Yeah, I remember that video. Kind of surprised TF2 allows it, though I suspect it's only for certain servers and what not. I forget where I learned it from, but I do recall how some spies used images to get easy kills.

Oh wow, that HD Wario Land. That's amazing.

He apparently does these both for art practice and to help with gameplay ideas.

I can recommend them as well, it's fucking great.

I consider it thee go-to example for how to do reference humor. The joke works first, and the reference adds to it. And there are a ton of jokes that land.

I really wish I knew what I was going to say there.

As do I

But sure. Bagman.

Bagman

I really went crazy with those two. I feel you can kinda tell in Sun God's Wrath that I was getting a bit tired of it, but I think I peaked with those two.

I really need to sit down and read through them again. I haven't gotten to the Sun God's Wrath, and like I said there was a lot of story to keep track of with the Kaga games.

Ah, so we're undone by hubris. Like the real Spain!

Reminds me of Overly Sarcastic Productions video about El Dorado, where Conquistadors literally found a civilization that had so much gold they regularly threw it into a lake, and though "Naw, that's too little! There has to be an entire city of gold that these people are getting it from!" And proceed to die in the jungle as they search for a city that never existed. For several centuries. And that's just the tip of the iceberg for the oddly karmatic consequences in the story.

All in all it makes a disturbing amount of sense, doesn't it...

I don't know if there's an official term for it, but I would say "Cartoonily Grounded" is a good description of the Spark Barons. Yeah, workers being fed reprocessed shit or being torn apart by feral robot dogs on their way to work is on the fantastical side, but companies skimping on feeding or protecting their workforce to save a few bucks is unfortunately not unheard of. Where the Spark Barons are incompetent, it can be funny but also concerning because of how their actions are not that far fetched.

While the Rise are still my favorite faction in terms of story, there is a surprising amount to dissect with the Spark barons.

Aww. Show anyway?

Sure:

Then again... This is Del we're talking about, that may not be enough...

Oh God is he behind me right now--

I don't know how Del suddenly became a running gag, but I'll roll with it.

Hah! Look forward to those!

We'll see how things go when the big choice comes around.

Oh God, I had missed that. That's interesting...

They did expand upon this aspect when they were rebalancing Sal's campaign, but it was always there to some degree.

Ah, but little did you expect, Felly, your old pal is playing 6D chess. He's everyone's ally and secret enemy, at the same time!

I am still impressed with the amount of backstabbing the game lets you get away with.

Plot twist: He didn't actually wink. His eye light just malfunctioned for a moment.

Yeah, imagine the other Rise walk in on you beating the shit out of their guard. I don't think they'll accept "I was just establishing dominance" as an explanation.

While the Rise aren't hesitant to use violence to achieve their goals, I doubt a faction that aims to give workers more rights is interested in "might makes right" philosophies.

I like the massive grin. It's no :v face, but it's good for a generic man.

Add it to the pile of funny faces. At this point, I'm wondering how much competition Smith's route will have...

What's with these bodyguards and having the most threatening themes in the game, seriously...

They have threatening themes because they're actually competent at their jobs and have brains in their skulls.

Well, of cousre. Had plenty of time to grow all that fluff.

...I just realized I never really thought about how Jarackles treat their fur. Like, I know cats clean it themselves and cough up hairballs, but how do other animals take card of their fur? Eh, I'll go through the research rabbit hole later. I have to finish this first.

I just like that he's sporting a big doggo mustache. I've said it before and I'll probably say it another couple times before all's said and done: I love the alien staches in this game. They're a wonderful little design choice.

There will be a fashion show showing off all the alien beards before the Let's PLay is over, mark my words, and possibly a ranking, if I can find a way to make that work. 

That's 100% weeabo hair. She watches anime, guaranteed. Probably rom-coms, too.

Well, she is a Rise Rebel, and they regain morale every time they do damage. Wade is totally shouting anime nonsense whenever she attacks.

I like this one. Her eyes are really flat and it makes her head look like a pancake.

You're probably not far off, considering how flat Smith's head is at certain angles.

HAHAHAHAHA HIS NAME IS LITERALLY BAD IN SPANISH

HE'S BAD

Oh how I love when this happens. Random Spanish words used as names is the best.

Well, he was a former foreman. Maybe it was intentional?

I mean, isn't this already how technology rolls in real life, Asimov or no Asimov?

Not yet in robotics. They still have some kind of human overseer. Though I wonder if we'll live to see the light of day where automated combat robots become a thing.

Of course he did. He's bad.

I wonder how much mileage you're going to get out of this joke.

Ahh, war crimes. Truly the bonding experience.

Freindship makes good men better and bad men worse.

Who cares about Lopli, you now have the power of Bad on your side! By Del, that's great.

To bad the bad man doesn't like me enough to get the boon, while I have to deal with a bad bane.

I wonder who we'll be beset by this time around.

You'll see...

It’s quick, but Promoted Dockhands do a neat trick with their blunderbuss where they eject the cartridge then catch it again by flipping their gun.

Less neat is I have to deal with 2 Evasion.

Faulty Armor may not be immediately debilitating, but man can it make trying to block damage not fun.

Since I can’t get through Yacka’s Evasion this turn, Rook angrily Kicks a Spark Mine.

Trick shots seems to be the name of the game for Promoted Dockhands. At least I’m being injured in style.

Though I could have gone without the Wound and Exposed combo.

Yodeling Yacka still has Evasion left, so I attack with my weakest card.

Yacka performs the same trick.

Of course I gain the Faulty Armor bane when my next opponent repeatedly adds Exposed…

Since I can’t damage Yacka this turn, I once again target the Spark Mine. First with Blast to upgrade the card.

Then with Hair Trigger to spend a charge and gain slightly more defense.

And Kick the Spark Mine again because Yacka would otherwise dodge.

There are more situations where Burn will be handy compared to remaining Fully Charged.

Situational, but I’ll take it over outright destroying the card.

Kickochet is an amazing pun, and Ricochet is more useful than drawing a card when playing Kick already takes 2 actions.

Focused Strike: Really handy if you tend to keep your guns empty, and the damage is respectable, though not outstanding.

Sear: Any amount of burn is nice, and the card is thankfully affected by power and concentration.

While I never focused on Burn, it’s still nice to be able to apply the debuff.

Allies tend to surrender when the fight has already gone downhill. That said, Morale Boost can still be handy during longer fights when surrendered allies are able to rejoin combat, so it’s a nice boon to have just in case.

May as well use the flourish now. It’s not like it’s going to do anything if I save it for later.

I generally use Guns Blazing against single opponents. It’s not as immediately damaging as Sal’s Hemomancy card, but it can last longer if you have ways to apply Scorched.

And since I’m not satisfied with 12 Burn, I turn up the heat.

Now for a final bit of defense, I spend my only charge.

Despite not being attacked, Brash Slips away. I can only hope the Spark Baron will target her next turn so her ability doesn’t go to waste.

I take 1 damage thanks to Faulty Armor still applying to my empty cells. I also gain Static Shock, which makes me hope I won’t randomly discard Gallery from playing Hair Trigger.

I thankfully discard a defensive card instead on a turn where I’m not being attacked.

Predictably, I play the only other attack card in my hand.

Thanks to burn and the combined assault, the fight is over before I know it.

I think Brash will appreciate me killing the Spark Baron that is suspicious of her.

Annoying as the 5 damage is, being able to Stun on demand needs to have some kind of drawback. I typically don’t use these until the boss fights, but I suppose it’s not too bad to have the item in my deck just in case.

Quick Fire: This is pretty much Hair Trigger, but you don’t start with the card in your deck.

Take Aim: Mark can be useful if you’re running a deck that benefits from constantly gaining charge. I’ve already said my thoughts on “Draw a card” cards and the same applies here.

Blinders: If I benefit from gaining charge frequently, this is a good ability. It’s situational otherwise.

This is weird. The game never repeated the exact same boss fight in a row for the randomized fights. I suppose my death in the last run caused something to go awry?

It only dealt two damage. Doesn’t matter which card I prepare right now.

Gab activates, and I gamble twice. The first flip lands on Snails…

I give experience to a Pleasantries card.

And finish off with the strongest one in my hand. Afterwards, I remember the extra damage would be turned into composure during this boss negotiation.

I miss it, but I drew Spotty this turn, so I have 4 actions to work with.

Since I really don’t want to deal with protecting several Moment of Weakness bounties, I guard it heavily.

And since I have an action left, I Gamble with Roughneck, which ends up landing on Heads.

Slurred Speech. It was going to be destroyed anyway after this negotiation, but I suppose I’m glad it’s no longer clogging up my deck.

It’s Heads. I’ll take the extra defense.

Since Burn won’t target every argument, I instead attack twice randomly with Agency.

Sigh. At least I entered this negotiation with full Resolve, so I can afford to take a few hits.

I destroy Fear with Mirrored Grumble, as the second attack will be seperate from the first, bypassing the composure.

Snail in the Pocket: Meh. I can see the uses, but it’s not enough to nab it for myself.

Weight: I can see this being beneficial if you have reliable ways of gaining influence. Unfortunately, those runs aren’t common.

Since I only get two chances to make the most out of Defect, I gain some concentration first.

Of all the cards in my hand, Kickochet will deal the most damage.

Overall, I’d say turn 1 went better than the last time I fought Fraxl.

Concentration helps, but Lumin Daze is still annoying. I get rid of my only charge with Quick Fire.

Fralx shoots me twice, and a Loot Cluster appears to distract me.

Even if it does low damage, at least the burn can do a little more.

Fralx breaks every gun safety rule and ironically gains 10 defense.

Doesn’t matter. I wasn’t planning on attacking him anyway.

And since I don’t want to waste my Shock Core but could potentially get more out of Gallery, I see what I can do with Ammo Pouch.

Since I plan on attacking the Loot Cluster with one attack card left, I’d say Burn would help destroy it faster than Wound.

Gallery doesn’t destroy the Loot Cluster.

But the Burn does.

I know firing two guns simultaneously is more accurate than firing one at a time, and that holding a pistol sideways while shooting is an actual technique, but Fralx’s pose here doesn’t strike me as particularly beneficial.

I upgrade Blast, but unfortunately Lumin Daze does its job and I don’t deal any damage.

I finish off by applying Burn, since it will still take effect even if I don’t break through his defense.

I play Posture again for the defense and concentration combo.

And attack Fralx twice this turn to destroy his defense. I really need to start dealing more consistent damage to the boss.

Disregard: I like making the use out of a bad hand. That’s the entire appeal of roguelikes for me.

Kicker: A straightforward Discard card. Drawing a card is a situational bonus.

Snail Bite: I can see how this could be powerful, but 2 actions is a bit much.

Energy Loop: The picture is hilarious. Any kind of healing is welcome, and spending every charge at once can be a nice way to gain a defensive boost.

Arc Deflection: If you often have Overcharge, then this can come in handy if you need defense now.

Amplifier: It makes every Scorched card immediately useful. Not something you’ll always pick, but it’s a solid ability to have on hand.

So that was Day 1! It took 2 weeks instead of a month to get through. Like last time, I should be able to do the Spark Barons and Rise missions in one update. Fortunately, there’s a lot new on day 2, so I won’t be retreading old ground.

The start of Rook’s second day, except I survive this time.

Before doing anything else, I swap out my coin.

I go with the ever reliable Bog Coin.

I've tried the Psychic Coin once. Adding Doubt is really fun, but it makes it glaringly clear just how limited Rooks options are for gaining composure.

I forgot to swap Rook’s outfit for Day 2. Whoops.

Ever have moments where you wonder how you missed the glaringly obvious?

This is a really, really painful screenshot to look at in hindsight.

I’m going with pirating manga. It’s the most fitting with my headcanon.

Wade is apparently just chilling in the swamp right now. Wonder what the bit of technology in the lower left corner is?

But she’ll dislike me either way, and my instructions were clear.

There’s probably an anime cliche somewhere for this battle setup, but I’m not well versed enough to know for certain.

There was much internal screaming during the writing process whenever I see exposed and look back at my failure to get rid of the Bane.

Groans of increasing comfort aside, I defend.

To get the fight over with sooner than later, I attack twice with Mirrored Blast.

Tempting as it was to gain more experience for Ammo Pouch, I decide to go with the reliable damage of fire.

A good choice too. The fire damage unlocked Rook’s flourish.

I know the game mirrors sprites, but it’s weird seeing it in the combat animations. I’m used to the oddness happening during talking sequences.

Anyway, Wade gains back some morale for dealing damage, probably shouting anime jargon at Rook.

Wow, two mines just popped out of the bog. Why would you make your camp here, Wade?

Anyway, I use Energy Loop. I welcome the healing, the empty cells will help with blocking damage this round, and the card has Burnout anyway.

Tempting as Backfire is, I’d like to Hatch the Jammed Blaster sooner than later. I play Posture to help it deal damage and block all damage this turn.

Slamming a jammed gun to get it working again is a common trope. Rook decides to use it more efficiently by slamming said blaster against his foe.

Right, Faulty Armor still applies to defense gained through empty cells.

Pffffft hahahaha!

His large smile was funny enough, but this is the first time we’ve seen this hilarious face.

Anyway, I guess Veerin was also an anime fan and that’s what he and Wade discussed during their free time. I suppose friendship is a pretty big theme in most shonen anime.

Jokes aside, Civil Unrest is an unwelcome bane, but it’s mostly annoying when you have pets. It really only matters during group fights, and even then you typically have some leeway in how much damage you can afford to let your allies take.

Guerrilla Tactic is pretty much the same as the Spark Core. Really, the only difference is slightly lower damage in exchange for not damaging you. I’ll probably save this for boss fights anyway.

Clean Open is the only new card. It has an appealing ability, but personal experience tells me that the effect from empty cards doesn’t come into play as often as you would expect/like.

Apparently, the Spark Barons consider pirating manga to be a crime worthy of the death sentence.

I apologize to anyone who wasn’t onboard with the anime headcanon jokes, but at least they’re over now.

Since it’s the first turn, I play the Backfire early on so the ability actually sees some use.

Since I can’t play Kick and don’t want to spend any items this fight, I Hunker Down.

I really like when Rook counters several times in a row. Personally, it weirdly reminds me of the hammer power up from Donkey Kong.

Gun Smoke: Can you believe this card originally didn’t Expend? It was straight up the most powerful card Rook had, as spending 1 charge to gain 2 actions is a ridiculously good deal. Seriously, there are cards that spend more charge and do far less.

Pistol Whip: The Empty ability doesn’t apply as often as I would like, but it does solid damage even when it does cost an action.

Squeeze: I suppose it’s not the worst card to use when you’re going on the offensive. I’ve never used it.

Even with the Expend nerf, this is still one of Rook’s most powerful cards.

Kheven?! He was the Spark Baron I killed last time. The same dude who worked alongside Del. Small world, huh?

His character description is oddly appropriate.

I go with convincing Kheven that Rook beating up Del is nothing to worry about… somehow. It’s the least suspicious and I could balance out the day with a negotiation after fighting twice.

Bottom Snail: Never used.

Decency: I’ve already made clear how little I use “Draw a card” cards, and I already have ways to gain influence right now.

I have no idea what Rook said, and apparently neither did the writers because he gets away with this.

I head back to Kalandra for my reward.

I forgot to mention it earlier because of my surprise over being given the same mission, but Kalandra is wearing her normal Rise attire instead of her foreman outfit. I don’t know why siding with the Spark Barons causes her to never put on her other costume. It doesn't affect gameplay at all; It's just an interesting oddity.

Before meeting with Rook’s mysterious employers, I can do another random event. I can either get a Spark Grenade.

A contact I’m about to meet soon since I can’t kill him this turn. I can come close through the use of Burn, though.

Veerin’s contact is… Toeren.

Since this is an isolated location and I have no relation to the worker, I can kill her without much worry.

Also, the Grout Knuckle burrows into the ground to appear in a different position.

I have no idea why Toeren was carrying an Anchor around. Especially in Grout Bog; It seems like you would want to be carrying less weight around in a marshland.

Anyway, the card itself is fine, though the 2 action cost is pretty high, and you better hope you get lucky that the temporary power will actually be useful on the next turn. We’ll see if I use it at all.

I pick it for the easy defense. If I’m spending charge in the first place, it’s often because I want the extra defense.

It's not that Wade was pirating anime.  It's that the anime was really bad.  So bad that Fellmo called in a hit.

After seeing more previews and giving it some thought, it's not going to be a Day 1 purchase for me. I'd like to see some word of mouth regarding the story and characters first, as I wasn't sold on what was revealed through twitter and I know the reviewers were limited in what they could reveal. Looking back, knowing ahead of time that Fates story wasn't good while the gameplay was great helped me set my expectations accordingly, and I feel it personally helped the experience when I dove into the games myself. I still plan on getting Engage sooner than later, as the gameplay looks incredibly fun, and that's the reason I play Fire Emblem in the first place; I just want to know a little more of what I'm getting into on the writing side of things before diving in.

Fair. Honestly, I've only gotten MORE hyped since the leaks started rolling in. Every spoiler I've eaten has made me so happy.

Yeah, I remember that video. Kind of surprised TF2 allows it, though I suspect it's only for certain servers and what not. I forget where I learned it from, but I do recall how some spies used images to get easy kills.

You're thinking of sprays, those are only allowed on community servers. The sign, however, works anywhere. They're... woefully unmoderated, you can see some real shit in those.

I don’t see a reason to get on the Jakes bad side right now, so I let her yodel another day.

Don't lie, you just recognized how much of a shame it would've been to lose a promising yodelling talent.

Allies tend to surrender when the fight has already gone downhill. That said, Morale Boost can still be handy during longer fights when surrendered allies are able to rejoin combat, so it’s a nice boon to have just in case.

Might not be the best boon, but what's important is that you gained the love of Bad.

I have no idea what Rook said, and apparently neither did the writers because he gets away with this.

I mean, in other scenarios the option to negotiate provides a vague explanation of what you're doing. Here it's just "talk your way out of this mess." Clearly the writers couldn't come up with anything and just said "screw it, he does it with his Rook magic."

I forgot to mention it earlier because of my surprise over being given the same mission, but Kalandra is wearing her normal Rise attire instead of her foreman outfit. I don’t know why siding with the Spark Barons causes her to never put on her other costume. It doesn't affect gameplay at all; It's just an interesting oddity.

Huh.

Fair. Honestly, I've only gotten MORE hyped since the leaks started rolling in. Every spoiler I've eaten has made me so happy.

My main concern is how over-the-top Engage seems. I'm uncertain if I'll find the game to be the entertaining kind of ridiculous, or if I'll find the antics annoying. I'm expecting most of my reactions to be "WTF is this?" and I'm hoping I'll be laughing instead of facepalming at the game.

You're thinking of sprays, those are only allowed on community servers. The sign, however, works anywhere. They're... woefully unmoderated, you can see some real shit in those.

I see. Considering it's an online game, unfortunately I am not surprised.

Gahahahaha, I love it.

Glad someone did.

Reminds me of the time I did the Revolver Ocelot meme with Julius in the TRS LP.

I vaguely remember this.

...I'm far behind enough as it is, can't spend so much time doing that again. So instead, I'll just post the man himself!

FjDCaUAM_o.png

Man, it's been over 2-3 years since those let's plays were started, and it doesn't help that 2020 and 2021 were very busy years to say the least. I'll probably reread the kagasaga LP after I'm done with Rook. I really need a refresher.

He was a bad foreman, that's why he was fired.

You're getting more milage out of this joke than I would have expected.

You need to be badder to earn his bad respect.

Are You A Bad Enough Dude? | Know Your Meme

If you didn't do it... Well, let's just say, it would be unwise.

Hah

This is funny on so many levels.

Yodel duels are an untapped well.

If Griftlands ever gets an update, DLC, and/or a sequel, there needs to be a  mission that you can resolve through a music duel.

Don't lie, you just recognized how much of a shame it would've been to lose a promising yodelling talent.

Sure.

It would also have been a shame to loose the offer of Backfire.

Might not be the best boon, but what's important is that you gained the love of Bad.

This isn't exactly relevant, but the joke came to mind and I couldn't resist.

I like how you made that "respect the stache" comment, and then this showed up. That looks like the kinda man that would definitely respect the stache.

He certainly would have listened. Unfortunately, I decided I needed some experience for my combat cards.

Here we go. A battle of the beards. May the best facial hair win.

Quarrryn will be somewhere on the list of Griftlands amazing beards.

That... That looks REALLY odd. In the best possible way.

Yeah, the combat animations can look odd when not in mot-

Apparently she pisses glowing blue stuff

...

unknown.png?width=1193&height=671

A tragedy for beards all around.

As was Rook's death last time. Quarryn's demise is meant to balance the scales or whatever.

Aren't those two statements redundant? What, does she EXTRA hate you?

Well, one option causes her to hate you, and the other to dislike you. Regardless, they want you to think about whether or not you're fine with loosing a strong boon.

Look at poor ol' Rook. He too recognizes the horror of what he has done. Such a mighty beard...

Maybe in another life, they'll be friends. Just not this one.

Welp!

That's unfortunate.

Seriously, I've never had a boss repeat like this before. I don't know what happened behind the scenes.

Very unfortunate.

What's a roguelike without the risk of death?

Disregard how I wrote the last update in a single 4 hour sitting because I felt like it and wanted to get to the new parts of Rook's story.

Woo!

The outcomes are different, but I forgot just how many characters I ran into again.

No c'mon, don't do that! Del's cool, we know him! We know him REALLY well lol

I know. That's why I'm beating him up this time.

Ah, he lives. Good, good. Was worried for a little moment.

I would be worried too. I would have failed the mission if he died.

For you. No telling what multiverse traveler Del would've done if he found out you killed one of him.

I've put over 300 hours into the game. I've killed almost everyone at least once by this point.

Very small, holy shit where are the other dozens of characters you could get?

I don't know. Maybe the game is using this as a marketing scheme to convince people to buy the game if they want to see more characters?

I mean, in other scenarios the option to negotiate provides a vague explanation of what you're doing. Here it's just "talk your way out of this mess." Clearly the writers couldn't come up with anything and just said "screw it, he does it with his Rook magic."

Maybe Rook just distracted Kheven with coin tricks until he went away?

That’s quite a wide range. The Spark Barons do hold a monopoly on exporting Vagrant Age tech. On the other hand they are digging it out of a swamp while hoping it doesn’t explode. That’s a combination to expect quality of all kinds.

Rook doesn’t have many opportunities to display this trait, considering how difficult it is to get a pet on his route. Not as hard as Smith, but it’s still reliant on what random events you run into.

Mileeree’s description is interesting, as I’d agree that there are several NPC’s in leadership positions that definitely shouldn’t be. At the same time, while I wouldn’t say every story important character got their position through hard and/or honest work, I wouldn’t describe any of them as lazy. Even Fellemo, who is currently complacent with power, was a former Aerostat soldier and can still hold his own in a fight.

Whoever it is, they want Admiralty weapons on the Black Market in Grout Bog. They seem interested in the conflict heating up. This is also the third time I’ve been asked to kill someone as part of the mission.

Rook recalls his Admiralty days to sort out a paperwork issue. I’m no expert, but I don’t find this too surprising considering how military and police jobs have a lot more paperwork involved than some might expect.

I gamble to hopefully land on Snails.

Since I have an easy way to get rid of Dillawno’s composure and possibly land on Snails so Mirrored Grumble does even more damage, I play Roughneck.

Grunt: We already saw Grunt in action last time, so I’ll let that speak for itself.

Drawback: If you’re lucky, you spend one action to play two Hostility cards for free. A good deal, though it’s reliant on how lucky you get when drawing cards.

I don’t know of real live places where people actually talk like this, but I would dread actually working there. I hate legalese and how much crap is hidden or obscured in laws just because politicians don’t want their bullshit easily discovered.

The weapons make sense. People wanting to get their hands on stronger equipment in a staple of human history.

Kidnapping someone for ransom also makes sense, but is less morally justifiable.

Her Bane won’t matter because the Admiralty barely, if ever, appear during Rook’s campaign. I doubt Rook’s boss(es?) will be happy to hear that Cadwa was kidnapped instead of killed, though.

It’s generally better to play Ability cards sooner than later.

Klonni has the lower health. I aim to take her out of the fight so we can focus on Rugis.

I don’t know if having the weapon be guarded in the chassis of a robot is a good idea to protect it from getting damaged, or a faulty one since more moving parts generally mean more things that can go wrong.

Targeting Core is… Okay. Targeted is nice for group fights if you want your allies to focus on a specific opponent instead of spreading the damage around. Thank goodness it has replenish or otherwise it would easily clog up your deck.

Chimney: Scorched isn’t a guarantee, but it helps keep opponents burned for longer.

Mantle: I can see this being destructive if you’re running a burn deck, but even then 2 actions is a pretty high cost to apply Scorched.

I have enough ways to deal burn that the chance to apply Scorched will make a destructive debuff even more deadly.

Destroying robots can often mess with the post battle dialogue, as the games acts like someone died even if the NPC’s were spared. I’d say the writers generally account for these situations so the wording is often ambiguous, but it is something you start to notice after playing long enough.

Annoyingly, it didn’t draw an extra card, and my graft means I didn’t need it anyway.

Rook’s lack of easy access to composure granting cards becomes more and more apparent the larger your deck grows.

The composure is removed instead of stolen.

Yet the defense from Heads still prevents Planted Evidence from being destroyed. I don’t think I’ve used Roughneck for its intended purpose of stealing composure once this run, yet I’m still getting a lot of milage out of the card.
