We'll just have to learn to do Morr with less.

Damn. Almost to the hedge maze on Morr Normal with 2 Tomes and 1 Grimoire (soon to be 2). Close to full health. Looking good. Steam goes down. :evil:

GTA V was mentioned earlier as a possible game for the group up thing. It's on sale at Steam right now for about 50% off, so 30 bones.

Yeah - and because I was carrying a tome and grimoire (I think I had the grim...) I kept trying to reconnect. Bummed.

Made it through w/1 grim once on hard w/just the bots. (1st grimoire for me)
Made it through w/1 grim once with TheMix and 2 bots. (2nd grimoire for me, 1st grimoire for TheMix)
Eventually made it through twice with Blackhawk and TheMix and 1 bot. (2nd grimoire for TheMix, 1st & 2nd grimoires for Blackhawk).

We felt it would be too hard to try to get both grimoires on one Hard run.

Map.....................Level+.....Requirements........Rewards
Well Watch.............Easy.......Ogre gotta die!......1h stamina AND key
The Dungeons..........Easy.......2 Grimoires..........2h defense (DLC)
Summoner's Peak......Normal....Mission Complete....25 Jade Tokens (DLC)

Well Watch.............Hard......Ogre gotta die!............30 Hematite Tokens

I like the overlap, but Well Watch could be tough on Hard with bots. They aren't good at protecting the wells. Probably a good one to save for the group tonight.

Thanks for posting the contracts, TheMix. Maybe I'll work on the dlc contracts today and if there's room for me tonight do the Well Watch ones with you guys tonight.

Just fyi -
Summoner's Peak seems to have 2 ogres, one at the 1st generator and one at the 3rd generator.
The Dungeons can have more than 1 ogre. On the second run through I ran into 1 shortly before going into the room with the second relic, killed it and thought that would be it. But got an ogre in the room with the second relic (and found no bombs between the ogres). Fortunately I ran on easy and had equipped my bots with their best weaponry and trinkets so we survived to escape with the 2nd grimoire for the contract.

Will be late tonight.

Still visiting with mom at the physical therapy clinic and it's a half hour drive home.

If full up when I get in I'll just catch up on Sunday.

That went really well tonight. We had a couple of close calls tonight (in the warehouse and in that tunnel in Enemy Below where we had a surprise patrol), but we never wiped.

Part of it is getting better gear, but part of it is also that we're getting better at communicating and working together.

Blackhawk, there is a really nice Fireball staff up as a Quest.

And a trinket. Grrr... If I'd had a key contract today, I could finish up my current trinket and grab that one.

I'm actually considering grabbing that one DLC so that I can get the key...

I know that's foolish and the trinket will show up again, but ... "my precccciiiiooooouuuuussssssss".

So a couple of bits about the Skaven.

In Warhammer there is this dark, evil twisted dimension called the Realm of Chaos. If you imagine the Hellraiser series featured Cthulu and was conceived of by Salvador Dali then you're in the right place. There are gates to this plane throughout the Warhammer world.

When normal creatures come into contact with this Chaos energy, it corrupts them. The purest form of chaos is called warpstone, usually a luminescent bright green stone or crystal. It is essentially a chunk of Chaos. At some point, ordinary rats somewhere started munching on the stuff, and it corrupted them into the Skaven. Ever since then, warpstone has been central to their society. It is a food source, it is used in tools and experiments, it is used as currency.

You see warpstone all over the game. It is the green stone sitting around underground. It is the green lightning shooters on the ceilings in The White Rat. It is the green crystals on those chains we have to keep breaking. It is what is in the blades used by Clan Eshin's assassins (and why their blades glow green), it is what the gas in the Poison Wind Globadiers' bombs is made of, and it is what animates the rat ogres. The ratling gunners use it to create the steam in that powers their guns. Just be glad they didn't model the Warpfire Thrower (think Skaven flamethrower.)

Bonus bit: Yesterday I said that the doomwheels you have to destroy in Engines of War were basically hamster wheels. Here's how they're used:

I jumped in long enough to dump three keys worth of progress on a trinket to get that staff.

It'll be nice, as I'll have oranges for both of my main weapons. It'll open things up a bit, as I won't have to worry so much about focusing on just those weapons and will be able to start outfitting my secondary characters and bots.

Had a unpleasant thought, now confirmed; you still have to have the DLC to pick up the contracts. So while we may be able to see the content, we still won't be able to complete the contracts. :(

At least this will give me time to learn the layouts better.
It will also give us 3 more maps.

I wonder if I can also host you into the Endless waves? Only one map but probably more fun with people than with bots.
