    Mission 3: Journey to Llancarfan

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    We can finally stop being faggots and put difficulty where it belongs (until Bond of Oghres).

    [​IMG]

    "Connacht's leadership" my ass, you should thank fucking Rodolf the Hearthguard.



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here we are, Soulblighta Damas and Connacht.

    [​IMG]

    Also, Myrkridia.

    [​IMG]

    Damas and Connacht choppin' shit. We can't interfere in this fight since we don't have control over our troops yet.

    [​IMG]

    Said Damas.

    [​IMG]

    Answered Connacht.

    [​IMG]

    Haba is here with us. Heron Guards can live for fucking centuries so there is nothing wrong with him being here.

    [​IMG]

    Mrowak is a different matter though. Well, he was too much of a badass during our Myth 2 LP so I can't pass on opportunity to have him again. He's our lucky charm basically.

    [​IMG]

    Also, we have a warlock. He would be very useful during The Nest but nope, game decided to give him to us just now.

    [​IMG]

    Everyone is in formation and we can star our journey.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bridge and our good old friends on the other side.

    [​IMG]

    In all their low-poly glory.

    [​IMG]

    They have standard "guard the bridge" AI we know so well from previous Myth games so we have to aggro them first (with Connacht).

    [​IMG]

    Dancing with soulless is douable even without active pause when there is only one guy dancing. There might be problems when they decide to switch targets though.

    [​IMG]

    But we should be fine, unless we lose the Warlock of course...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Archer died, it was not Mrowak so no biggie.

    [​IMG]

    SPLAT! now we have to prepare for Thralls.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Warlock killed... one Thrall. Fortunately he badly wounded quite a few so our archers should be able cover our asses while we retreat.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They are too slow and don't have any Ghol support so we can just keeep retreating while our Warlock's mana regenerates.

    [​IMG]

    Aaand they are gone.

    [​IMG]

    We can cross the bridge now but we have to watch out for Wights.

    [​IMG]

    Wights are doing much better job at avoiding our archers than in previous Myth games, but we killed them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There are Myrkridia in front of us. They are too fast for our warlock and archers to kill them all. We will have to hope that Heron Guards will be able to chop them fast enough to give us time to retreat before Thralls arrive.

    [​IMG]

    We healed Damas a little and send our master-baiter to master-bait dem Myrk's.

    [​IMG]

    They are coming. I think we have time for only one fireball and then we have to charge (Thralls are also hauling asses here).

    [​IMG]

    CHARGE!

    [​IMG]

    Shashity chop.

    [​IMG]

    OWNED! and now we can retreat and just nuke Thralls with warlock.

    [​IMG]

    Fuck. Ok, we are sending Connacht and few Heron Guards to deal with Soulless because we have army of Thralls on our asses and Nobody ain't got time for dat.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, Celal will nuke shit.

    [​IMG]

    Warlocks are very nice in this game but their mana regenerates very slowly so I would actually prefere a dorf (or two, preferably two).

    [​IMG]

    Soulless were tergeting Celal so they got gangbanged before they even had a chance to throw their sticks.

    [​IMG]

    Celal is out of juice so we retreat.

    [​IMG]

    ... That fireball went off a little bit to close to our troops for comofort.

    [​IMG]

    But we are fine. Ok, now general charge plox.

    [​IMG]

    We could keep kiting but Emprah is waiting for us, and Emprah ain't waiting for no damn Thrall.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    - Does anyone even know way to Llancarfan?
    - Nah, let's just follow the road...


    [​IMG]

    Lone fast unit approaches. This usually mean an ambush in Myth game, and I played a few...

    [​IMG]

    Yup, reprise of last enemy attack. Unfortunately now Thralls and Myrks are coming from different direction.

    [​IMG]

    HG and our two heroes will deal with Myrks while Mrowak's finests and Celal nuke thralls.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    SPLAT!

    [​IMG]

    Soulless are no surprise, but wights are...

    [​IMG]

    But if everything goes well we won't have to fight wights. But we still have to deal with Soulless.

    [​IMG]

    I decided to use flaming arrows...

    [​IMG]

    And holy shit they are satisfiing.

    [​IMG]

    Myth 3 lacks on SPLAT! factor, but it almost makes it up with it's cool FLAME!

    [​IMG]

    Ok, now we just have to keep our archers near and Wights should leave us alone.

    [​IMG]

    This myrk is way to late for the party.

    [​IMG]

    Since archers are covering our asses, wights are keeping safe distance. We can finally cross last bridge.

    [​IMG]

    - Woooo! SPRING BREAK!


    [​IMG]

    This mission was so easy compared to the last two that it's not even funny.

    Yup, I think that we won't loose any soldiers "forever" now so I can start recruiting Codexers into mah armies. So if anyone wants to be a specific unit, please post which one (they are pretty much the same as in previous games) and I will give you a chance to die horrible death. But don't expect me to keep track of your kills, that's pretty much immposible without "active pause" cheat-hacks in Myth 1 and 2.

    Yeah I remembered that we will never use any troops we used before after Connacht reaches Llancarfan, cut's his hairs and decides to serve the Emprah so I decided to wait with recruitment until after "Journey" mission. I think that even though we will use berserkers, they won't be same guys who served Connacht "Barbarian" (not that it matters, they are all fucking dead anyway).

    It looks like we have quite a lot of dorf candidates. It's good that dorfs come in two varieties in this game - Shit chuckin' and shit choppin' (game take place before fall of Myrgrad... I think).

    Mission 4: The Pack-Mage

    Show Spoiler




    I knew cutsceenes in this game sucked but... damn.



    Briefings are still cool though.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kill the Pack-Mage Myrdred said. He's too dangerous Myrdred said. But where is Myrdred? Sure as fuck not with us here killing this thing...

    [​IMG]

    But we have Imperator.

    [​IMG]

    Storyfag the Warlock.

    [​IMG]

    Bunch of nameless Warriors because nobody wanted to be one. I'm not very surprised.

    [​IMG]

    Mrowak and Momma. Haba is not with us for some reason but he'll be back.

    [​IMG]

    Standard Myth CYOA. THERE ARE SOULLES ON A HILL. WHAT'CHYA DO?

    [​IMG]

    Normally we would flip to page that says about brave berserker kiting soulless. But we ain't got any (berserkers, and pages) so we send one warrior because fuck him.

    [​IMG]

    DANS FOR ZE EMPRAH!

    [​IMG]

    And then we send archers to kill soulless.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately one soulless switched target and bowman got wounded. Normally no fucks (or mandrake roots) would be given...

    [​IMG]

    But that's Momma so we will heal him.

    [​IMG]

    Bad Momma! You are lucky Imperator got 3 mandrake roots so we can spare one.

    [​IMG]

    We are back in a pretty formation so we can start looking for pack mage.

    [​IMG]

    There are more groups of Soulless standing on a hill. And we won't be able to avoid this particular group. So, same tactic.

    [​IMG]

    Fortunately it's going much better this time.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And we will try to avoid fighting rest of those fuckers to safe us mandrake roots (we've got 5 left).

    [​IMG]

    Ok, we've got real enemy coming. Celal and Storyfag will have to do their magic.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    SPLAT!

    [​IMG]

    And now Soulless are flanking us. I seriously suck at kiting in this game so I'm just sending Imperator to bum-rush them.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile Warriors will clean-up mess Storyfag made.

    [​IMG]

    Imperator will catch couple javelins in the face but he can take it and our archers can't.

    [​IMG]

    More soulless. Fortunately our warriors are finished and we can move towards Imperator (and then send him to bum-rush more soulless).

    [​IMG]

    We've got wights on the loose now but Mrowak and Momma will be able to deal with it.

    [​IMG]



    :yeah:

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, Imperator have to, again, pay the price of lack of active pause to help me dancing.

    [​IMG]

    But we are fine now. We have one badly wounded bowman but everyone is in good condition so we can continue our journey after we kill remaining wights.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, we can continue looking for our pack mage.

    [​IMG]

    We reached nice defensive hill with some squishy Thralls on the other side. Those trees are worrying me slightly though.

    [​IMG]

    But that's too much of a hill advantage to abandon it because of hill.

    [​IMG]

    Also I noticed that Storyfag doesn't have a hat.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Trees lowered damage our Warlocks done a little bit but warriors can clean up remaning thralls.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Soulless. We wil give Imperator a break and send few warriors with bowman support at them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    One manage to run away but our archers will fuck him up if he tries anything funny.

    [​IMG]

    River crossing. It's a Myth game so IT'S NOT A TRAP FOR SURE.

    [​IMG]

    No sire-e.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    HOLY FUCK IT'S A TRAP!

    [​IMG]

    Charging through river crossing to lure monstars would be normally a berserker job, but we ain't got any. But it seems that our warriors (who recieved no love from you at all) are good enough to do it also.

    [​IMG]

    Awwww jesus...

    [​IMG]

    Archers are too slow to turn around and kill Wight. Save us Storyfag, you are our only hope.

    [​IMG]

    Hey, it wasn't that bad. Only one archers got hit by wight piece.

    [​IMG]

    He may be a Witcher but he's no codexer so no mandrake root for him.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, those bastard have Myrkridia with them so we have to use HG to lure them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Myrkridia started howling and decided not to join Thrall charge.

    [​IMG]

    So we could use a warrior but whatever.

    [​IMG]

    Say hello to our little warlocks!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, they are done.

    [​IMG]

    But Myrkridia fled. Let's go look for it.

    [​IMG]

    Here it is...

    [​IMG]

    Together with a pack-mage.

    [​IMG]

    What the... No animation, no nothing. Thralls just "appeared".

    [​IMG]

    And some Myrkridia hunters are also coming.

    [​IMG]

    RETREAT!

    [​IMG]

    I oredered our melee units to attack Myrk hunters hoping that we will get a lot of free shots in this clusterfuck of pathfinding.

    [​IMG]

    And we did. Now we can just nuke thralls with Warlocks.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ok, now we need to have a talk with this pack mage dude...

    [​IMG]

    That's not even cool, dude...

    [​IMG]

    Awww, fuck you!

    [​IMG]

    But bastard go sniped!

    [​IMG]

    And we are victorious!

    I have difficulties following the plot. Maybe because I couldn't watch the cutscene at work. Why does the Emprah boss Connacht around? Isn't Gower independant of Llancfaran? And what's the deal with cutting his hair?

    Gower is independent but Connacht promised to teach Cath Bruig soldiers fight Myrkridia if Emperor promise him to help Gower if it ever get's attacked by Moagim. Emperor accepted his offer but also demanded Connacht to cut his hairs and beard (he didn't want his general to look like barbarian yahoo).

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then there was long description of complete failure and slaughter of Empire's army. Text was too small and went too fast so I can't show it to you. You have to watch it in youtube link I provided.

    [​IMG]

    Yup, we got shafted by Bal'al and then butt fucked by Trows, now we have to get the hell out of here alive.

    [​IMG]

    At least all the Codexers survived. Storyfag, Momma, Mrowak, Imperator (even Haba is back).

    [​IMG]

    Oh - Azira, Roxor - Welcome to your first day in Empire's army... NOW RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

    [​IMG]

    We have to flee from incoming Trows AND then destroy southern Arch to stop them from destroying rest of Connacht's army.

    [​IMG]

    Also, Storyfag has a hat.

    [​IMG]

    Our only way out of here is blocked by thralls and soulless. Normally they wouldn't be much of a threat but...

    [​IMG]

    ... We ain't got time for that. We have to fucking hurry.

    [​IMG]

    We can't use proven tactic of kiting the shit out of AI, but we still have to be crafty motherfuckers.

    [​IMG]

    I decided that Celal and Storyfag will take care of Soulless on our left while our warriors and HG will charge THROUGH thralls.

    [​IMG]

    And get their attention long enough for Warlocks and Bowmen to deal with Soulless on our right.

    [​IMG]

    Which sort of a worked.

    [​IMG]

    I put HG and warriors in same unit (I never do that) and speed difference saved our Warriors. Thralls are chasing HG instead slashing warriors who are casually strolling right next to them.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile - SPLAT!

    [​IMG]

    Now, HG will turn around to save Warlocks and Bowmen from soulless (and maybe get some heat of our warriors).

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nope, warriors are shit out of luck. But they should be able to deal with few Thralls.

    [​IMG]

    While HG do Safety Dance to protect bowmen.

    [​IMG]

    It all went better than expected. We have only one seriously wounded guy and it's some nameless archer so fuck him. LET'S KEEP RUNNING!

    [​IMG]

    NEW UNITS RECIEVED!

    [​IMG]

    Now, we have to join up with them.

    [​IMG]

    Which means more charging through thralls.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That must be good enough because we don't have time to kill more Thralls.

    [​IMG]

    Bowmen and Warlocks are very slow so our Warriors and HG will clean the road for them and join up with our reinforcements.

    [​IMG]

    And now we have to start slaloming through undead.

    [​IMG]

    I'v got a feeling our archers won't be able to pick off all the wights in time.

    [​IMG]

    While I'm trying to get our bowmen in position to shoot wights - Warlocks are doing occasional "Parthian shoots" just in case Thralls will catch up with us somehow.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, we've got to go through them...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now I realised there is no fucking way for our archers to kill all the wights so we have to sacrifice one HG - Two Stalking Night Moons.

    [​IMG]

    He is HG afterall, he can survive one wight explosion.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, behind us two warriors got isolated and chopped to pieces by Thralls. One of them was Roxor.

    [​IMG]

    But it looks like rest of Codexers have decet shot at surviving this now.

    [​IMG]

    Another Wight. Two Stalking Night Moons will deal with him...

    [​IMG]

    Wight refused to detonate itself so our An Hero had to chop him to piec...

    [​IMG]

    ...SPLAT! Holy shit he didn't survived that one!

    [​IMG]

    No siree! he didn't. Ok, now everyone must get through the arch.
