AS I recall, this game was rather open-ended in that you have several enemy bosses to go after and you can choose which ones to take on in what order. Rare for the series as most games were very linear, if I'm remembering correctly. I definitely remember some of the toughest fights in any game I ever played in this one, but I never loved getting my butt beat so well.

You're off to a good start with the AAR, BC.

What equipment did you buy?

Thanks, ComradeP!

I will make a note to record their equipment when I get back into it; I've not had time since Sunday. Had a very long day with work yesterday and more of the same today; maybe Wednesday I'll be able to get back to it.

The regular AD&D rules can be confusing at times. At least, they can be, this far removed from when I played it regularly (80s). For example, a Thief cannot use a bow (correct me if I'm wrong, anyone), because I almost always buy a short bow for my Thief only to have it say "WRONG CLASS" when I try to equip it. Then I smack my forehead and mutter "oh yeah that's right" or something similar and proceed to sell it for less than half I bought it for. :)

From what I understand these Gold Box games all use regular AD&D rules, even though some were released when the AD&D 2nd edition was available. I've never played any 1st edition AD&D game as far as I know, only the AD&D 2nd edition classics like Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment.

My very first Gold Box Game back in the day. And, yes, we'll definitely need mirrors. And not just because Mirth's so pretty.

The AAR isn't dead, nobody panic!

My opponent has been very busy this past month or so, so rate of turns has been very slow. Further, I had nothing to do for the past 10-15 turns or so besides adjust a fire mission, which occurred without incident. There has been nothing to report on.

There is good news however. It is now the 44th minute of the battle, and my combat power has finally arrived!

Later this week I will post a proper AAR post detailing my current situation and my plan for assaulting the airfield. Hang in there, the battle is in its final phase!

Not shooting that tank :P

I replayed this about 2 years ago and wrote a "classic review."  I thought it held up quite well over time.  The story is interesting and you start to care about the characters.  It is turn based, so the combat does not get screwed up.

You should link that review here. Unless it's on that 'front page' thing that Brant keeps rambling about. :)

I like my tats. I'm not sure why we're making such a fuss to have them removed.
