    Highlights include finding an ass load of gold throughout (lots of bad stashes and good begging skills), successful heals via food (thank you hobbits!) some Gygax prayer successes, a village that was selling 2 Excalibur hilts and a blade of the same (found one on the ground later!, plus a successful friggin forging!!), finding the key to a chest and then the chest it belonged to, rescuing the princess who I guess got stuck right outside the gates of the castle, losing a peasant about a foot from the farm XD and well lots lots more. Biggest let down was becoming the greatest hobbit warrior of all time who was in possession of Excalibur, only to get turned into a frog immediately afterwards and basically having to run from every fight after. The curse technically ended, but no amount of waiting or cures and such turned me back, plus the princess wasn’t available it seems (defrogging via a saved princess is a thing right?) So I remained a frog and also never found the damn ring. Must have been in whatever realm was missing all it’s Excalibur pieces XD. Honestly forgot just how much fun this game is.

    Man you almost got a Hobbit to lvl 5.
    Excalibur forged and then this “– Day 85, You missed by rolling 14(14+0), which is lower than the attack score (17) of the Hag. You also missed your saving throw (14) which is over your defense score of0!! You lose 1 hit point.”
    ?? How did that happen a +0 to the attack roll and 0 defense or was there a hit from the hag that is not recorded here?
    The princess seams to be otherwise busy cause upon entering the castle after having brought her back should have cured Frogging.
    The anti-curse spells/ healings should work towards de-fogging since the specific spell for it is silly since it will fail 75% of the time.
    A few cure-all items like the Flower-of-Life (needs to become consumable) could always be in any adventure to heal any malus.
    GG and thanks for the upload.

    Yes the very first attack against the hag, despite having both tower guards training, a high-ish level and the legendary blade somehow still resulted in a failed attack that left me frogged up and with no means of attack (talk about urb). Could otherwise have achieved a level 5 hobbit, even if I never found the One Ring. Most bizarre of all was going to the Gygax temple in the castle town but having the priests look me over and decide I was in fact not froggy at all. Something must’ve gone wrong, but what are you gonna do?

    Hopefully the next shall end more successfully!

    Plus the king did end up getting two sons during the run so it was all for naught XD
    ?? In the King Maker Quest the event “the king has a son” should not happen or it should be that it says “he has a daughter” instead cause urb fixed that later on.
    – Day 66, The king has a new son!!
    hmm I see. Is this the Kong version or some other?

    – Day 26, You sold your Walking Cane for 25 gold pieces.
    I usually keep the Walking-Cane since it halves all events that take time if you chose to to bypass them.

    – Day 26, You rolled a 16 (9+7), which beats the attack score (16) of the Owl Bear. The creature is defeated!! You gain 2 experience points!!
    First serious fight. Till here you got very,very lucky.

    – Day 34, Your flee score of 11(11+0) was over 10. You managed to escape the Vampire!!
    That was one thirsty and mostly persistent (you got away on the 4th try) Vampire.
    This xp drain caused you to fail eeee

    – Day 52, Your flee score of 15(15+0) was over 10. You managed to escape the Giant Spider!!
    This I do not get. Would fighting it not have been better/ easier?

    These ATT values are strange since one would assume that you always equip the best possible.
    Day 74, You rolled a 29 (18+11), which beats the attack score (15) of the Ogre.
    – Day 78, You rolled a 22 (16+6), which beats the attack score (15) of the Gargantua Snake.

    Even Cursed with a -3 them +6 are low.

    – Day 84, You rolled a critical (20), slicing that Lich in half. The creature is defeated!! You gain 3 experience points!!
    That was a tough fight. Lich is definitely a very dangerous enemy especially if it hit’s you first.

    Great run nonetheless. Was fun for sure.

    Thanks!

    Interesting. It’s the download version off arise’s download heaven Google Drive. 3.6 I think it says? What’s the latest version currently?

    These ATT values are strange since one would assume that you always equip the best possible.
    Yeah I was phasing out a bit sometimes tbh hahaha. Would forget to equip melee gear sometimes, though luckily I don’t recall rolling bad any time that happened. Or maybe I did…

    And yeah like I said, I was a bit overcautious missing some fights like the spider one. The cane one though I actually never thought of before 😅 will keep it in mind next time.
    I also definitely should have taken the rope from the well earlier when I first encountered it.

    Again thanks, it was a nice run!

    Played some STWALT today as I was hunting for game sprites and as always it’s still very fun. Playing has me thinking that I kind of wish characters might start with ‘class’ specific items like one might in LW as starting out empty handed feels… not smart? Anyway, I digress.

    – Day 51, Tyrud, Killed by a Minotaur at level 3 after 50.87 days of travel. Tyrud had 169 gold pieces in his purse and managed to gain 15 experience points.

    And so another adventurer falls to the minotaur, never having checked what was in that chest. The flower perhaps? Anyway, that second game was kinda lucky because I simultaneously reached the castle and saved the princess at the same time that I got hit with that zombie encounter. The fellow waited patiently for me to do everything I was going to do at the castle before slapping me. Also was not so impressed with the crossbow but did end up dual wielding with the Main Gauche and something else in both games. Here’s to more luck in future.

    Playing has me thinking that I kind of wish characters might start with ‘class’ specific items like one might in LW as starting out empty handed feels… not smart? Anyway, I digress.

    That was quickly dismissed in order to make the game “simpler” and more random.
    As compensation the starting stats are modified to display the characters strength end weaknesses.
    Has it’s perks. Players can not sell or lose items this way.
    Could use some re-balancing perhaps. Some characters are way underpowered or better their class is not represented well enough.
    The game favors fighting classes making for pure luck runs with others.

    So here goes your very unlucky Ranger. Man and you surly only needed a few days more before the poison got ya . . ..
    – Day 14, You sold your Crossbow for 75 gold pieces.
    ?? Did you have another Bow or why sell it?
    You know that you can shoot arrows or cast spells before the fight goes into melee.

    – Day 14, You have acquired the following item: Antidote (Not falling for that one again)
    falling again? How so?

    Hobbit nexttttt
    – Day 2, You sold your Iron ingot for 25 gold pieces.
    again?? This can easily be turned into a +5 Sword at the Workshop.

    That Hobbit did fairly well. GG
    . . .read at the end that you where disappointed with the crossbow.
    How so? using a missile weapon 1st is always good since it’s a free shot at anything.
    the LOG does not record everything so I could have missed you using it.

    Very nice of you to have put annotations in there. Good read friend.
    URB ON!

    I thought the crossbow would work the same way as the bow and arrow, as you mentioned, but never once did I ever ‘shoot first’ like you do with the bow. Instead in the fights I got into, it seems the crossbow (which is marked as an off-hand weapon?) just adds to your crit chance/damage, so when I got the main gauche, which adds to your attack value, I used that instead and sold the crossbow. Perhaps more research is required. I don’t play STWALT frequently so I’m entirely willing to believe I was doing something incorrectly.

    As for the antidote, well considering my previous adventurer died from poison, it would have been silly to forego antidote is what I meant XD

    Iron ingot to +5 sword. I’ll be honest here is an example of game knowledge failing me, as I wasn’t aware that one iron ingot is all it took. I assumed (I should stop doing this in game and IRL x_x) more than one ingredient was required and that the DC would be high, so I rather just take the gold and get an already made weapon or armor. Plus there’s the issue of the short time limit, but clearly that didn’t stop me from praying at every temple or Gygax shrine, so that be a poor excuse.
