Bought Might and Magic VII from GoG, so hey, I thought I'll document my playthrough with some screenshots and put it on my blog. It's my first time with these kind of games, so I think this is going to be fun.
With four strangers I stepped out on land of Emerald Island, not knowing what to expect. We entered a scavenging tournamnet to win a castle in a foreign land.
Clearly, a scavenging tournament is the best kind of tournament, action, advanture and danger(?) await. I present to you my four party members:
And then there's this half crazed Sorcerer (Sorceress?) named Xonliana. Oh yes, there's also Pontley, but he's wasted most of the time. So yeah, we leave the ship, and the first person we meet...
...is some kind of transvestite that wants to sell his services to us. Babal is shocked.
Or aroused. I don't know. That guy communicates using only his giant eyebrows.
So we go look for the items, and the first thing we see are, like, million of dragonflies.
Clearly we made a big mistake. A miscalculation of grand proportions. Xonliana kills a few with her fire thingy, because, you know, of course she does, that crazy...lady.
So after that we back the hell up to the city. Let the goddamn guards take care of these guys. We, of course, help them with fire and swords and all that.
We then make a trip to the local healer. Xonliana is dead, and Dumpling is seriously getting on my nerves with all that whining about her open wounds, geez.
The attacks (and retreats) continue. After the fourth one we decide to hit the hay at the local tavern. Pontley gets smashed with four bottles of dwarven moonshine.
After that, we return to the battleground, and kill the remaining dragonflies. A couple of guards die (and some peasants, but come on, screw those guys), but we reach the treasure of the storehouse in the woods.
In it, some items needed for the scavenger hunt! And a whole lot of gold! Bitchin'.
After we return to the town, we meet a shady guy who offers Xonliana a wand of destruction for a favor in the future.
Xonliana says "Okay" because hey, why wouldn't she. It's not like these things can come back to bite you in the ass.
Yeah, sure, don't think about it. Just, you know, take the wand from the fucking mobster why don't you. Jesus Christers.
So, next up, we have to go to the Temple of the Moon for the next item. We cross the bridge and meet some fellow scavengers.
We talk about some of the items needed for the hunt...
...clearly, Brent, you are an idiot. You may even be dumber than Babal. But I'm not going to tell you why, because you'll never learn that way.
We also meet a lady bard, and a professional hippie, that would like to play us songs of glory while we fight.
Dumpling, being the sweet idiot of the group, invites her to travel with us. A hippie. Traveling with us. For money.
Dumpling, we need to talk.
Onwards to the temple!
As we fight trough a mass of bats and spiders, we arrive to find some guards in a huge librairy. We take the tile needed for the hunt, and we get out of there.
So yeah, that wasn't too bad. So, these are getting pretty easy. Does that mean the next one will just be handed to me?
The final item lies in a cave.
This looks okay.
I went for the item, and got the fuck out of there.
With all the items collected, I went back to the man responsible for the tournament.
Hey, I won! I have an effing castle now. Sweet! I got my peeps on a boat (motherfucker), and off we go!
Yep, that's it for now. Maybe I'll update this blog with some more adventurous adventures of my adventurers.
The game's definitely fun though, and if you like old games, and open world games, I advise you to check it out.
Oh, and this is a dramatized verion of what happened, party members do not have their own personality.
