    Utgard Update 1

    First steps in the land of the giants.

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    We didn't get any eperience boost or super cool weapon reward for completing first part of our quest, that's a shame but I'll get over it. Heimdall is still level 5 and Aegir and Ormr are getting close to also reach it. We are quite low on food and healing supplies but we hope to find a shop soon.

    [​IMG]

    We have to start our search for next weapon of the gods somwhere.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This island seems to be good place as any. Since it's Utgard we probably will meet some giants. We had "Giant Killer" scrolls but I sold them, so we will have to depend on Heimdall strenght to overcome them if need be.

    [​IMG]

    This looks familliar, but it's hard to expect that every island on three world will be unique. This game is on floppies.

    [​IMG]

    We will move around as Ormr, we don't have much food left so time may come when Aegir will finally have to fight so we should save his health.

    [​IMG]

    Ormr fell into pit trap and then spotted sorcerer. That's bad sign if we encounter sorcerers right from the start...

    [​IMG]

    You will either let us pass or die, old man!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He died after three hits and dropped quite a lot of stuff...

    [​IMG]

    It's better than what we have. We will give Heimdall's crystal sword to Aegir even though he already have one. This should bring sword icon closer to attack button if we decide to fight as Aegir.

    [​IMG]

    Sorcerer also dropped two food rations and potion of runelore.

    [​IMG]

    We told Heimdall to drink it and now he's killing machine rune expert!

    [​IMG]

    Let's continue.

    [​IMG]

    Probably more pit traps. They don't do that much damage but we shall move as Ormr anyway.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Well, if there were any pit traps, Ormr managed to avoid them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This island is too damn calm. That's suspicious.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We will go south first.

    [​IMG]

    After switching some floppies (Heimdall is one of those games that don't recognize any other WinUAE floppy drives than DF0 and DF1) it turned out it's a shop. That's good to know. Unfortunately this shop don't have anything other than shops we visited in Midgard. We bought one amethyst key and said goodbye to shopkeeper.

    [​IMG]

    So it's time to go east.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He dropped invulnerability scroll. We gave it to Aegir so we can sold one of his crystal swords and have sword icon in right place during combat (The same reason why Heimdall is carrying one).

    [​IMG]

    After killing owner, we can loot this chest.

    [​IMG]

    It was trapped and contained "stne" key, helmet (?) and revelation scroll (we used one to "reveal" bridge in second island we visitted in midgard). We can't do anything with the helmet so I'm guessing it's quest item.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I don't like the word "venomous"...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We killed it and didn't died of poison so I guess it was just to scare us.

    [​IMG]

    I think that's it for this island. Let's go back to the ship.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, please.

    [​IMG]

    And those were our first steps in the land of giants. Not much really, basicially game was nice enough to put shop island close to our starting position.

    [​IMG]

    Aegir (I'm confused about this dude's name, combat menu says AEGIR and crew screen says AEIGR. He will be Aegir from now because its easier to pronounce) reached level 5 but he is still worse than Heimdall at everything but dexterity (Heimdall have his dex raised by carrying two dexterity charms). In next episode we should look for trouble in another island since we are now pretty good on supplies.

    Utgard update 2

    Closed doors and drinking water from random places.

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    I forget to check if this shop we found is one with infinite stock of food. Well, we will find out later. Right now let's continue our journey.

    [​IMG]

    One west of us please.

    [​IMG]

    I will use the same squad until they all reach level 8 (I think that's maximum level in this game).

    [​IMG]

    Ormr will again be our crash test dummy.

    [​IMG]

    Food is always welcome.

    [​IMG]

    And none of our keys fits the lock on this doors...

    [​IMG]

    So that's it for this update until next time... Ok we will visit another island.

    [​IMG]

    One east of us this time.

    [​IMG]

    Yes, and no closed doors this time, please.

    [​IMG]

    This island looks unique. I dig those norse... thingies on the walls, man.

    [​IMG]

    Let's go to eastern exit and pick up food that lays on the floor.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Resurrection scroll, we discarded because I'm cheap shit that uses savestates we already have one. Let's go east.

    [​IMG]

    Quite a lot of rooms to choose (there is another exit behind the pit trap). Let's take first of the norhtern ones.

    [​IMG]

    Like so.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    At least they changed enemy descriptions in Utgard.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He wasn't "extremely strong" by any means but he packed a decent punch. He also dropped food and restore all scroll.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There is nothing in this room other than pit traps. Let's go back.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now we shall se what lies behind this passageway.

    [​IMG]

    Le sorcerer!

    [​IMG]

    It really depends on what spell he's about to cast, but let's take our chances and fight him.

    [​IMG]

    He had tons of hit points but done next to no damage. He dropped restore scroll and strange signet...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This signet raises ALL of our statistics. If this is quest item and someone want's it, he will have to pray it from our dead fingers.

    [​IMG]

    Now let's quickly turn into Ormr and see what's inside this chest.

    [​IMG]

    Chest was empty and trapped. Dammit, let's go back.

    [​IMG]

    South this time.

    [​IMG]

    Orc!

    [​IMG]

    Dude, I'm not giving you my signet. Bugger off!

    [​IMG]

    Yes!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Meh, he wasn't so tough anyway, but he didn't drop anything.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Interesting... let's check out this scroll.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sure, drinking random shit helped us before.

    [​IMG]

    I think Mimir is a dragon from norse mythology but I'm not sure. Also, I don't know what it did. It didn't change out statistics or anything like it. But we ordered everyone else to also drink from Mimir's well, just in case. Now we have to go back to the beginning of this island because we left one unexplored corridor there. Og, I also tried to use teleportation scroll but it said it's of no use in this room.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh, it's just a stuntie.

    [​IMG]

    Let's teach him that stroking in public places is bad idea.

    [​IMG]

    Have at you!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He was quite tough but that's to be expected from a dorf. He dropped one food ration.

    [​IMG]

    And nothing else here. Let's go back to the ship.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And that's it for this episode. We failed to open doors at island 2 and drinked water from Mimir's well. In next episode we shall continue our quest or die from sideeffects of drinking water from random fountains in dungeons.

    Mimer is another giant or jotun. He was keeper of the well of wisdom, where Odin traded one of his eyes for a sip and knowledge of the runes, if I remember my mythology correctly. Mimer had a trick up his sleeve though. The effects of the well aren't permanent, so Odin would have bought only temporary knowledge from the well. Only, Odin, the crafty bugger, threw the eye he had just gouged from his face, into the well. There it lies for eternity, granting him knowledge and wisdom.
    Later (I think), Mimer was beheaded and Odin embalmed and enchanted his head so that it he could keep it around for company and conversation. In the Valhalla comics, they regularly play chess against eachother. +M

    Here's the wiki article on Mimir.

    Thats some Myth: The Fallen Lords stuff there :lol:
    Are those regular chess or this game "Danes" played while sailing (I don't remember name of the game and don't even know how to google it) with figurines screwed to board so waves won't topple them over?

    Utgard update 3

    Meeting Norns

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    Heimdall is pretty low on health so we will use our Restore All scroll and then tell him to eat some food. You can see that even though Ormr the wizard is level 5 he has barely more runelore than Olaf the druid, who is level 1. I think wizards are more all-rounded characters than druids, which is fine in theory. In practice they all have lower runelore than Heimdall and it makes them completely useless. But they are necessary as pack-mules. I haven't played the sequel but I read some things about it. Apparently 8th Day completely removed party management and you control only heimdall. Also combat was intergrated into main interface making game more like Darkmere.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, enough of this. There is job to be done here.

    [​IMG]

    We shall sail to this star-like island.

    [​IMG]

    Yup, this one.

    [​IMG]

    Another unique island, interesting...

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately this house is just a decoration. We can't enter it.

    [​IMG]

    We found food and fire scroll which we discarded. Now let's check the western exit first.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Stuntie. They hit hard and have tons of health. But their attack animation is very slow so I'm not very afraid of them anymore.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bugger managed to hit us once and look how much damage he did. We found jade key and str scroll on his corpse.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Celebrity! I read about women controlling fate of humans in "Heroje Północy". There is myth that one of those fate controlling chicks connected a life of a newborn to a candle when she got mistreated during some familiy celebration. This guy (whos name of course I don't remember) later become famous skald and was kept alive by keeping this candle un-lit. Later one king or jarl christianized and ordered to summon this skald and lit a candle to show that christian god is stronger and will keep him alive. In pagan version of the myth dude died after the candle burned out... But that's really doesnt matter, does it? She just want a necklace. We don't have it so let's go look for it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Let's go south this time.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ninja spiders!

    [​IMG]

    He dropped a resurrection scroll which we decided to keep because we have only one food ration left.

    [​IMG]

    Let's switch to Ormr, just in case...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It looks like fate controlling chicks have fucking family reunion here... But that's a really good pixel art if you ask me.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, let's check the last exit now.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That line is getting old.

    [​IMG]

    We blocked his first blow and then simply beat him into submission by spamming attacks. He dropped Disarm Traps scroll which is great because those things are quite rare.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This one wants apples. She should get some if we find any.

    [​IMG]

    That's it for this island. We need a necklace, apples from Iduna's orchard and something to restore eyesight. We don't have any of those things so let's go back to the ship.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If was pretty short episode, but what can you do? Next time we shall visit this huge island south of us.

    [​IMG]

    And that's how we look with experience and statistics so far.

    There was some update delay. Mostly because I was fucking around with this computer and managed to broke a thing or two (But everything is fine now). My processor fan is damn rejected jumbo-jet and my motherboard don't allow any fan speed control. So I tried to do it manually by removing two cables from 3 pin connector and putting them in my power supply instead of motherboard. Well it worked for slowing down fan (and removing most of the noise) but this pc refuses to boot if fan is not connected properly to motherboard (I left yellow cord in 3 pin switch so I don't know what this fucker is talking about). Then decided not to screw with it anymore. Pc works fine now but still VERY loudly but I don't think there is anything to be done about it other than replacing fan (and I left all my spares at home). And then I decided to fuck around with config.sys and autoexec.bat to play Dark Sun games in dos. It took me almost all day but FINALLY I managed to free up 612 KB conventional memory so even Wake of The Ravager works with sound now, but only floppy version. I haven't try to add cd-rom drives to autoexec.bat and see if cd-version will play. Ok, but that's done and I overcome this machine with Google my mighty intellect and now I'm preparing to do new update for Heimdall.[/S]

    Utgard update 4

    We may or may not have pissed off some dragon...

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    We are low on food and other healing supplies. I went back to shop island in order to buy food but this shop does not replenish it's stock and I managed to get only one ration there (and a second one was dropped by monster I killed in order to get to the shop). So we now have total of 3 food ration. It has to be nough.

    [​IMG]

    Now we are going to visit this big island south of us. Since it look big it will probably have many monster, and that's is not always bad thing since they sometimes drop food and healing scroll. Well, we shall see how it goes.

    [​IMG]

    I said that I don't expect every island to have unique look but this game managed to surprise me again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Overland towny map. Maybe we will find a shop with unlimited food?

    [​IMG]

    But first we have to deal with this douchebag. We are not paying anything.

    [​IMG]

    Yes!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He dropped stone axe, which is strange because it first monster that demanded something from us and tropped loot after we killed him. I decided to take this axe even though it useless for us. I hope we will find a shop and trade it for food.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Let's check this house.

    [​IMG]

    It's not a shop but there was one food ration laying on the floor. We picked it up and now let's take south exit.

    [​IMG]

    I think owner of this house likes him some dungeons.

    [​IMG]

    And sorcerers. I had to fight him twice, first time he dropped crystal sword but game stopped responding after fight was over. WinUAE worked fine but game showed only black screen.

    [​IMG]

    Second time we killed him he only dropped pouch with 10 gold coins.

    [​IMG]

    But at least game is working so I'll get over it.

    [​IMG]

    God damn ninja spiders.

    [​IMG]

    And bastard didn't even drop anything.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, but that should make up for treasureless spider.

    [​IMG]

    We picked up two food ration and there is absolutely nothing else in this room (I checked with detect secret doors as always). So let's go back to the village.

    [​IMG]

    Now let's see what's inside next house.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pretty simillar to the last one so far. There also was food ration laying on the floor so we picked it up and now we are pretty good on healing supplies.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ormr time!

    [​IMG]

    Chest was trapped and contained iron and golden keys.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hey, new enemy!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He run away but dropped jade key.

    [​IMG]

    And Heimdall is now level 6. I don't think his stats changed that much (he was pretty much maxed out anyway).

    [​IMG]

    Ok, let's continue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rat's library?

    [​IMG]

    Restore All scroll.

    [​IMG]

    Resurrection (discarded, we are good on those).

    [​IMG]

    Detect secret doors (could it be a hint?)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Dexterity potion. Now Heimdall is at 83 dex. Ok, let's use this detect secret doors scroll...

    [​IMG]

    Not very surprising.

    [​IMG]

    let's check it out.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Hmm...

    [​IMG]

    Sure!

    [​IMG]

    I don't think that any of the Norns would be insterested in dragon eggs though (unless they restore eyesight).

    [​IMG]

    That's it for this island. Let's go back to ship.

    [​IMG]

    I would gladly explore more but there's nothing else on this island.

    [​IMG]

    I really don't want to go to this strange island in southern end of map so next time we will have to do some long-range sailing (which hurts crew) or other sheenenigans.

    Utgard update 5

    Diamond key.

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    Like a said in previous update, I don't want to go to island in southern end of the map because it looks "special". We done some backtracking and now we are trying to sail to island directly south of starting position in Utgard (starting position is this white circle). Jarmes informs us that journey there will be dangerous but whetever, we should be fine.

    [​IMG]

    Disembark!

    [​IMG]

    This island reminds me of Bitmap Brothers games before they switched to AGA - SpeedBall 2 or Chaos Engine (from which I took my Avatar). We started moving west and spotted a chest.

    [​IMG]

    We opened it with our Ormr the minesweeper and chest contained one iron key and "water" scroll.

    [​IMG]

    It will probably be useful somwhere here on this island.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sorcerer.

    [​IMG]

    To be honest, the enemies I'm most afraid of are Orcs. They are extremly good at blocking so you can't just spam them and they attack quite quickly so you have to time your attack very well. Sorcerers can do a lot of damage but usually have low health and attack slowly.

    [​IMG]

    And they attack by pointing their hands at you so it's very "visibile" and easy to counter with your own attack.

    [​IMG]

    He dropped food and Wall of Protection scroll which we already encountered before and I think it simply protects you against arrow traps and such.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, let's start moving east.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Chest contained silver, iron and regular key. Iron keys are new to us so we should eventually try to open doors at 2nd island with them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Those buggers can be really annoying to fight. Even though they don't attack as fast as draugrs you have to be carefull with your timing because they can sudennly start spamming attacks on you.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He dropped pouch with 100 gold coins and scroll which we could not pick up because we are carrying to much shit with us. I ordered Heimdall to eat some food and then discarded stuff I don't think we will need.

    [​IMG]

    Now, let's take a look at this chest.

    [​IMG]

    Oh well...

    [​IMG]

    Puzzle room?

    [​IMG]

    We tried to move closer to the helmets...

    [​IMG]

    But we got ambushed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He dropped str scroll (discarded)

    [​IMG]

    Really? we happen to have one...

    [​IMG]

    Let's use it.

    [​IMG]

    It seems like nothing happened.

    [​IMG]

    But there's key on eastern wall.

    [​IMG]

    A dim key! we haven't seen any of those before. Ok, there's nothing left to do on this island. Let's go back to the ship.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    From here we have whole eastern part of the map open to us. So in next episode we shall take advantage of it.

    Utgard update 6

    Tiny island and... bug?

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    This is our next target. We are down to our last food ration but there's nothing we can do about it until we find shop that have infinite food supply.

    [​IMG]

    DISERMBARK!

    [​IMG]

    Very "homey" looking island. Let's switch to Aegir (Ormr is too low on health) and take a look around.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We can't interact with those chests.

    [​IMG]

    Well, let's check what this dude is all about.

    [​IMG]

    I was hoping for "Gimme gold because there is shop behind me" but no such luck.

    [​IMG]

    And we are out of healing supplies completely.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I didn't give Aegir any weapons because he carries all our keys (shitton of them) so we will have to do it with Heimdall.

    [​IMG]

    It was very easy fight anyway. And, orc dropped food!

    [​IMG]

    Then we looted orc's chest. It contained more food, regular key and runelore potion (which we gave to Ormr).

    [​IMG]

    And now Ormr will be slightly more useful especially since he's close to level up.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another runelore potion which we also gave to Ormr.

    [​IMG]

    That's more like it but still quite low.

    [​IMG]

    And Call of Valhalla scroll which we took.

    [​IMG]

    Nothing more in this room so let's get moving.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ... And we are back at the beginning. I walk around casting detect secret doors and even tried to use Water scoll on those big cauldrons but to no effect. So that's was really tiny island. Let's go back to the ship.

    [​IMG]

    Yes.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, that would be really short update so let's visit this another tiny island south of us.

    [​IMG]

    ... Or not. Games refuses to load this island. It asks for disk 3, starts to load and then nothing but black screen. WinUAE is still working and after minute or two (Island don't load THAT long) some farting noises starts but nothing else. Ok, I will try to read over the internet what is going on.

    No, no. Not REAL farting noises, just you know "something is wrong" noise and then game crashes to "insert disk" hand because I don't have any workbench for it to crash to.

    Disappointing. I'd hoped it was some old Norse farting monster that had gotten to you. +M

    I tried to use different ADF disks but it didn't help so this LP is on hold until I come back home and check if using different computer with newer version of winUAE will help. Sorry.

    The good news (sort of) is that I've been playing on very old WinUAE and this is not only game that Guru Meditated on me (Guru Meditation - Amiga version of blue screen of death) and no one else seem to have any problems with those games that crashes in my case. I'm soon going home* and I have save disks and not only savestates so there should be no problem with compatibility between different version of WinUAE. I'm really hoping that's just problem of old emulator version.


    * Fuck, I was sick of sitting at my parents house until yesterday. Friend informed me that one dude cut off other dude hand with machete in my hometown. Some guy was causally walking in the middle of the fucking town at 21:00 and some random dude jumped on him with machete and tried to cut of his head, guy tried to block the blow and lost his hand, but survived. Apparently those two didn't even know each other and attacker was probably high on amphetamine. I'm mean, what the fuck.

    Guess what guys, I managed to fix it. I downloaded ADF disks from different source AND set floppy drive emulation to 100% instead of 800% and it works. So I'm going to take a nap now and after that I will start making new upadtes. Sorry for this bullshit, it is said in book of winuae "Thou shall not use fucketh 800% floppeth emulation" but you know, It almost always works and nobody likes to wait a year before shit loads... Well, anyway I managed to make it work now so new updates will come after I take some sleep.

    Good to know, this lp brings so many memories :love:

    I remember being very little when I played this game, I had no idea of what exactly I was doing, instead I was just clicking around and see what happens. Even then I managed to reach the third isle (or was it the four?) and have fun with it :incline:

    Utgard update 7

    Another tiny island is tiny... and another. BUT IT WORKS!

    Show Spoiler




    Let's celebrate that spring has finally arived in Poland and "mother winter left our land".

    [​IMG]

    Are we worthy now? did we prove that we are viking enough to land on the Island of Guru Meditation?

    [​IMG]

    YES! It works! goddamit, I was afraid that I will be forced to abandon this LP but there is a hope!

    [​IMG]

    Let's pick up this food and then we shall se if we can even open first doors here. It would be FUCKING HILARIOUS if we couldn't.

    [​IMG]

    Unstoppable wave of fucking progress. Silver key opened the doors and we can see what secret this island holds.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, it's time to switch to Aegir.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Chest contained two food rations, silver key and ice shard scroll (which we discarded).

    [​IMG]

    Aegir managed to open doors with regular key.

    [​IMG]

    Spiders!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He dropped Jade Key which is very nice because those seem to be pretty rare.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this time we had to use silver key (we still have quite a lot of them).

    [​IMG]

    Fucking dwarf!

    [​IMG]

    Jew-Dwarf!

    [​IMG]

    I'm sorry, we don't have any gemstones so we have to kill you.

    [​IMG]

    He was quite though (not surprisingly) and had Adamant Axe, but we don't need it. We have better weapons and to be honest, I don't see much difference between using thunder-blade/stone axe and punching shit.

    [​IMG]

    Doesn't look glorious enough to fucking pay gemstone to enter.

    [​IMG]

    We have found two scroll behind a house. Resurrection and Restore All. We used restore and discarded resurrection.

    [​IMG]

    Let's check this here abode.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More like "GREETINGS FRIEND, WE KNOW OF YOUR QUEST SO WE PUT DUDE NEAR THE ENTRANCE TO EXTORT GEMSTONE FROM YOU LOL". Fucking dwarfs. But I'll take the necklace, thank you.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fun fact: in norse mythology goddess Freya agreed to have sexual intercourse with dwarfs for three days to get this necklace. True story.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, let's get check another house.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh.

    [​IMG]

    Heimdall is murderer and he don't mind some rape and pillage from time to time... but he's no thief. We shall leave their jew-gold alone.

    [​IMG]

    ... But we will take the food.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, thats it for this island. It was tiny but we found necklace here, and that's a quest item so we probably couldn't finish this world without visiting this island.

    [​IMG]

    Yup.

    [​IMG]

    And that's the end of first update since this LP was stopped for a while because some software issues. I hope now we won't encounter any more problems and hopefully we will be able to finish this game.

    :incline:

    Reminds me of Radiata Stories, a ps2 game with elves, dwarves, fairies, orcs and other fantasy races that was about racism (well done, not IN YOUR FACE RETARD LOL, no-one was innocent). Unsurprisingly, dwarves were represented as extremely greedy little shits (to the point the king mentions not having enough money to pay the taxes, despite sitting on a throne made of gold while he says that :lol:).

    By the way, will you lp Heimdall 2 once you're done with this done?
