    For some reason, Flight from the Dark is the worst mission for me. Couldn't cheese it to do a flawless victory, no matter what.

    Mission 6: The Forgotten Lands

    Show Spoiler




    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Mazzarin, guy who, during our TFL LP, ambushed berserkers when they tried to kill paralyzed Watcher... YEAH LET'S FIND HiM!

    [​IMG]

    And it's a hero-only level. I don't like those.

    [​IMG]

    Imagine searching whole Forest Heart for one dead dude, and it was before Quest Compass was invented!

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately all our heroes all melee units. Myrdred is not the Deceiver yet so his special ability is "Dispersal Dream" and not "Wolololo" unfortunately. Dispersal Dream is sort-of range attack but we can use it only three times so we are pretty much stuck in meeleeing shit.

    [​IMG]

    After short stroll in the woods our brave heroes stumbled upon omnious circle... PUZZLE LEVEL ALERT! PUZZLE LEVEL ALERT!

    [​IMG]

    Also, floating bitch. What it is I don't even so: GIANT BOMB HERE I COME:

    Lyche

    Unit Type: Heavy Medium-Range Support

    Lyches are the vengeful spirits of long-dead sorceresses that have been brought back to life through the necromancy of Bahl'al. Having been put to death centuries ago by those mistrustful of magic, in their current state they have nothing but contempt for the living. Lyches attack with a slow-moving projectile that causes damage over time to those within its area of effect. The best defense against this attack is to simply keep moving in order to avoid it entirely.


    [​IMG]

    Baldie will tank it.

    [​IMG]

    Or just avoid it's attack, he's fast enough.

    [​IMG]

    I also decided to send Myrdred as a support, hoping he have some sort of range attack, but no, he doesn't.

    [​IMG]

    But baldie fucked Lyche up and now we can proceed to investigate this omnious circle from closer perspective.

    [​IMG]

    THAT'S A SHTYGIAN KNIGHT! CRAFTED FROM THE SHOULSH OF FALLEN SHOLDIERS BY SHOULBLIGHTE... oh, wait.

    [​IMG]

    I decided to send Myrdred to investigate those Stygian Knights since they seem to be stationary...

    [​IMG]

    But they told Myrdred to fuck off.

    [​IMG]

    They also told Shiver Ravanna to fuck off, but as soon as she got near the circle there was an earthquake and cricle started flashing.

    [​IMG]

    But knights are still pissed so let's fuck 'em up.

    [​IMG]

    They went down like bitches.

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately circle stopped flashing when Ravanna left it. Well, I think that it doesn't take a genius to figure out what this puzzle is all about now.

    [​IMG]

    AMBUSH!

    [​IMG]


    Forgotten

    Unit Type: Medium Melee

    Resembling in many ways the Myrmidons of Myth: TFL, the Forgotten are fast-moving undead that carry iron blades in each hand. Rumored to be all that remains of a tribe of cannibals that once occupied Forest Heart, the Forgotten can be found in significant numbers there and in the ranks of Moagim's army. Though they are much more mobile than the Thrall, they are not exceedingly durable, so a large group of melee units can usually deal with them quite well.


    [​IMG]

    And they also went down like bitches.

    [​IMG]

    Another ambush, this time there is more of them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not exactly a tough opponents dem Forgottens. Myrdred is slightly wounded but Damas is a Heron Guard captain so he can heal us up with his 6 mandrake roots if need be.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another circle, directly south of us.

    [​IMG]

    And a Lyche nearby. Let's try to avoid it for a change.

    [​IMG]

    No Lyche fucks were given so now let's see who belongs in this circle...

    [​IMG]

    Connacht.

    [​IMG]

    Now Stygian Knights have to get fucked.

    [​IMG]

    And fucked they got! Let's look for more circles.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oh, great. A river crossing.

    [​IMG]

    Nothing horrible happened, shocking.

    [​IMG]

    And here we have yet another circle.

    [​IMG]

    And a Lyche, and this one don't want to be ignored.

    [​IMG]

    Baldie and Ravanna will fuck it up.

    [​IMG]

    ... Or get fucked up by it.

    [​IMG]

    Goddamn, those things hit like a goddamn truck.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, healing time.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All our Damas are belong to this circle.

    [​IMG]

    But we have to remove Stygian Knight squatters first.

    [​IMG]

    And a Lyche.

    [​IMG]

    It's your cricle Damas, so you clean it up.

    [​IMG]

    Splendid!

    [​IMG]

    Myrdred is not cool enough to have his own Enni Circle so there are only three on this map. Now we shall proceed to put everyone on his/her's circle.

    [​IMG]

    Myrdred will wait here.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Our shenanigans opened Mysterious Crypt (TM). Now we must GATHER OUR PARTY BEFORE VENTURING FORTH.

    [​IMG]

    And then head in general direction of Mysterious Crypt (TM).

    [​IMG]

    There be Stygian Knights a-guarding...

    [​IMG]

    But I don't think they are going to stop us.

    [​IMG]

    We will use Dispersal Dream for shit ang giggles because we didn't have opportunity to use it in this level.

    [​IMG]

    And then we will just chop the rest.

    [​IMG]

    And that's it, mission is over and we can enter the crypt.

    [​IMG]

    This was even easier than Journey to Llancarfan.

    Mneh. I was entertained. And I admit, I hunt those achievements... :oops: I've sunk about 40+ more hours in the game after installing Enemy Within.
    I still rate it as a much lesser game compared to its predecessors, but It's Good For What It Is. +M

    Didn't liked new XCOM, so cinematic vibe that I can't stand... demo kicked out faster than terrors missions.

    Cool to see old antiheroes before transformation. Also - I like running so Mission5 was kinda entertaining.

    MOAR problems with following the Plot. How/when does it become apparent that the Watcher is helping the current Leveler?

    Watcher destroyed Empire's army together with the Trow when Connacht went straight into Moagim's trap. Unfortunately watching youtube video is necessary to follow the plot so I will try to write short recap of what happened during cutscenes from now on if you can't watch the videos.

    I would very much appreciate it! I can always watch youtube after getting back home, but even a short recap will make each update comperhensible and thus enjoyable :)

    The Myth series habit of throwing Irish words around randomly without even the remotest connection to their actual meaning gives me a throbbing headache. Still, that narrator ... win:

    Mission 7: The Crypt of Mazzarin


    Show Spoiler



    WARNING: Watch up to 1:54, there is spoiler after that point.





    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    We've found the crypt, now we have to find the last resting place of Mazzarin himself.


    [​IMG]


    Sytgian Knights are patrolling the corridors. They shouldn't be much of a problem for our heroes. But we have to be careful, we have limited supply of mandrake roots for healing.


    [​IMG]


    I decided to take corridor to the left.


    [​IMG]


    We have to deal with Stygian knights first.


    [​IMG]


    They went down quite easily.


    [​IMG]


    Let's continue then.


    [​IMG]


    In a large hall at the end of this corridor, we got ambushed by enemies we know from previous mission. We have to watch out, their floating skull attack can deal shitton of damage if you are not careful.


    [​IMG]


    We killed one floating bitch. The other one dissapeared.


    [​IMG]


    We can continue looking for Mazzaring resting place.


    [​IMG]


    There are those closed doors everywhere. And I don't have a foggiest how to open them.


    [​IMG]


    So we will wander around, lighting up magical braziers on our way.


    [​IMG]


    Floating bitch reappeared.


    [​IMG]


    We've told Damas to dodge her attacks while the rest prepares to chop her to pieces.


    [​IMG]


    Unfortunately, she managed to hit Myrdred once, and almost killed him.


    [​IMG]


    But she's proper dead now and we sacrificed one mandrake root to heal Myrdred.


    [​IMG]


    We continue, lighting up braziers on our way so we can see anything.


    [​IMG]


    We stumbled upon strange pedastal with glowing stone. It's probably important.


    [​IMG]


    We activated the pedstal and got immidiately attacked by Lyche.


    [​IMG]


    We split up and prepare to fuck them up.


    [​IMG]


    They are dead but Myrdred managed to get hiss slow ass almost killed again.


    [​IMG]


    We won't heal him up just yet. But we will try to keep him out of harms way this time.


    [​IMG]


    There is another Lyche at the end of this corridor.


    [​IMG]


    We send Damas after her since he's fastest.


    [​IMG]


    Meanwhile, Myrdred lights up brazier.


    [​IMG]


    Damas killed Lyche but now he has to retreat because stygian knights are coming.


    [​IMG]


    We join up and prepare to ruin their day.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    We've found two more pedestals, they are protected by one Lyche.


    [​IMG]


    We ordered everyone to cut her up while Damas was dodging her attacks.


    [​IMG]


    Now let's activate those pedestals.


    [​IMG]


    Activating both of them opened previously closed parts of the crypt.


    [​IMG]


    Time to move out.


    [​IMG]


    Lone wisp tries to stop us. They are not very dangerous and nowhere near as annoying as Lyche.


    [​IMG]


    Some more wisps coming.


    [​IMG]


    And we have another pedestal stone.


    [​IMG]


    Lone lyche attacked us from behind while we were trying to get to pedestal. We will send Ravana to fuck her up.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Myrdred activated pedestal and we were getting ready to move along when we, again, got attacked by wispis. This time in group of three.


    [​IMG]


    We defeated them but we had to heal up after this fight.


    [​IMG]


    After bit of exploration we've found another pedestal.


    [​IMG]


    Activating it opened more of the crypt for us.


    [​IMG]


    ... And also pissed off three Lyche. This will suuck.


    [​IMG]


    We leave slowass Myrdred behind while the rest spreads out and attacks Lyche.


    [​IMG]


    We managed to kill them but Ravana got hurt.


    [​IMG]


    Now we have to move along, killing stygian knights on our way.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Another Lyche, this time it's job for Connacht.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    More door opens for us.


    [​IMG]


    Large group of stygian knights stands on our path. We are running out of mandrake root so we will use Myrdred's dispersal dream on them.


    [​IMG]


    SPLAT!


    [​IMG]


    Nowe we can continue.


    [​IMG]


    We got our asses surrounded by wisp. We tell everyone to spread out and attack.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Now we can activate yet another pedestal stone.


    [​IMG]


    And heal Ravana before we move along.


    [​IMG]


    We've spotted two Lyche. Fortunately they were busy fighting stygian knights.


    [​IMG]


    Let them fight. We won't interfere.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    We will just kill survivors.


    [​IMG]


    Liek so.


    [​IMG]


    After some time moving along the corridor, we've found strange pillar with black stone in the ceter.


    [​IMG]


    Stygian knights are guarding it. We prepare to defend ourselves.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    I think that was all of them.


    [​IMG]


    Now we can move along.


    [​IMG]


    Two Lyche appeared behind us.


    [​IMG]


    But we will ignore them and make our way towards this world knot.


    [​IMG]


    Which teleported us to place that either lacks proper texure or HAVE COME SEEKING THE LIGHT,


    [​IMG]


    Few steps away from the world knot we've found a circular room with huge-ass wisp in the center.


    [​IMG]


    Wisp is shooting lightning at Connacht so we ordered him and Myrdred to take cover while Damas, together with Ravana, charges him.


    [​IMG]


    He tried to run away (he is faster than Damas) but we managed to pincer the fucker.


    [​IMG]


    And slash him to pieces.


    [​IMG]


    His death opened new passage.


    [​IMG]





    Watch from 1:15 till the end.


    [​IMG]

    Ok, this whole delay was because I've lost my saves but I decided to start again by cheating and starting new game from mission 7. Now I need new recruits for Llancarfan armies. Anyone volunteers?
