PAR (second youtube playthrough)
 
Exhibitor only has a few videos left, and I'll post the final video later this week. I was originally planning on making some sort of tutorial series, but the comments in that thread made it seem like the topics that are most desirable (how to survive) are not conducive to that format, but are very conducive to the playthrough format.

That said, at some point in the next couple weeks I plan to start a second play through. It will not begin until after 3.4.1 release. It's also unlikely to get 1 video a day like Exhibitor did, due to scheduling over the next couple months, I'm hoping for something like every other day.

Anyway, here's what I think I'll do.
  • 3.4.1
  • Shockbolt Tiles (with short MAX_SIGHT option)
  • randarts
  • no selling

I have not decided on race or class, although I'm leaning towards something tank-y, so a dwarf/troll/dunadin warrior/paladin. I'm malleable though in case anyone has something they'd like to see. I don't think I want to do ironman yet, maybe the next video series. I was thinking of auctioning off the options (and name) in exchange for a donation to oook, but I'm not sure anyone would take me up on that offer.

(PAR = pre-adventure report)

Tiles are a WICKED idea!!

I think a mage would be a better choice, since melee is basically the same thing over and over again and would get boring to watch pretty fast. Mages have a good deal of strategy and use different spells throughout the game.

Awesome----that is still a fine upload pace and all else. Semi-agreed with PowerWyrm though in that either Mage or Priest might make for the better next runs since the Rogue was only able to touch on a fraction of the magic and all the holy stuff would be new content outright. Ultimately, whatever order these go in for the next great while ahead, I'll definitely be watching for the hopeful victories and expositions.

Hmm a mage eh? They are by far my weakest class, I die more often with mages than anything else. But that could be good to show anyway. I find mages are slower paced than other classes in the beginning, but maybe that's ok? I can do the quick paced tank next.

I guess I could always go high elf (shudder).

I like the notion of doing a different race per successful class of whatever sort as possible to add to the distinction factor. :)

I cannot parse that.

The perhaps not purposefully intentioned, but "nice idea", pattern that each run would not only be of a different class, but also different race out of the whole mix----as opposed to just Elf-or-Dunadin Everything.

Same as the Rogue would've had a different life story without that racial Kobold rPois!

surely no trouble getting here

of doing a different race
of using a race which is different to previous ones

per successful class
every time you start a new class after successfully winning with the last one

so as to make different Let's Plays as distinct as possible.

Capiche?
