We return to Darkest Dungeon and, after three episodes of preparation, we're ready to take on another boss. Specifically, we're having our second round with The Hag, because watching heroes being boiled alive is just so much fun.

Also, as part of their training, I've put the newer heroes on a special diet plan to toughen them up. I call it: Involuntary Fasting.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and we're still mostly training up a new batch of heroes. To that end, we take on a couple of missions in the Weald, since we need to clear a path to the next boss anyway. You all know what that means... Graverobbing. Lots and lots of graverobbing.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and this episode is a bit of a cool down after our boss fight Double Feature. We're mostly training up new recruits and gathering gold and materials in preparation for future boss fights. Also, we get a rather important upgrade.

We're back to Final Fantasy IX, and it's time to deliver the mirrors that we collected last time.

Since we want to deliver all four mirrors simultaneously, we're splitting the party into teams of two to take on each shrine. Not to worry, we've got very logical teams set up, like Vivi and Steiner, or Freya and Amarant, or Zidane and... Quina.

You know, I'm starting to think that we made a mistake.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and now that we've run out of Novice level bosses to take on, we've move on to the Veteran level ones. As the title suggests, we're taking on the Fulminating Prophet... Bring an umbrella.

We're back to Final Fantasy IX, and in this episode we'll be learning a bit more about where Kuja came from and what his real goals are.

Also, now that Cid's human again he can finish perfecting the Mist-free airship. That way international travel can resume and people can finally stop sending us hate mail over that whole "Destroying the Mist" thing.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon and in this episode we finally confront the last of the Novice level bosses, the Brigand 8 Pounder. What kind of boss bears such a strange name? Why, a cannon. Why did the Ancestor need a cannon?

You know what, I don't really want to know. It's probably horrifying.

We're back to Final Fantasy IX, and we're pursuing Kuja in the hopes of rescuing Eiko... Eventually, after we do some other stuff.

Our pursuit takes us through Mount Gulug, an ancient dormant volcano. Like most volcanoes, it was once home to a highly advanced civilization of Mole People, and is now inhabited mostly by Dragons. Yep, it's a textbook case, just like we all learned in high school...

...Or was that just me.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and we spend most of this episode waiting for Clerinell to recover from her case of... Death.

In the mean time, I send a team on inexperienced heroes along with an Antiquarian to explore the Ruins. You all know what that means... Money.

At this point I'm wondering if we should start sending heroes in with Wheelbarrows instead of Holy Water and Medicinal Herbs.

"Remember guys, leave no stone un turned. In fact, take the stone with you. We can sell that too".

We're back to Final Fantasy IX, only a little late due to recording problems, and this time we find out what happened to the rest of the gang while Zidane was off running an errand.

Obviously, Kuja would never do anything to the hostages while Zidane is off retrieving the Gulug Stone. I mean, Kuja really seems like an honest guy. He would never go back on his word...

Why do I smell burning?

We're back to Darkest Dungeon and, things are going... well. Terrifyingly well. We have our rematch with the Inchoate Flesh, we have a few more profitable quests, and we even manage to upgrade a few of the buildings in the hamlet...

Something terrible is about to happen. I just know it.

Also, we have a reunion with an old friend. Who is it? Watch and find out.

As promished we're back to Final Fantasy IX. We're still working for Kuja, whether we like it or not, and without pay no less. Maybe we should form a union...

Anyway, he's sent us to retrieve a mysterious artifact on a continent that we've never visited before. The artifact is hidden in the ruins of what appears to be a museum. Except, it's a museum commemorating events that never happened. Spoooky...

We also have an encounter with another one of the friendly enemies, but this one wants something other than ore.

You may remember that in the previous episode, the estate was in a bit of a bad way. We'd lost a team of experienced heroes, and the war chest had been reduced to the change we could find by fishing through the couch cushions.

In this episode, we're pulling ourselves back together and rebuilding our operation. Eventually.

We are finally back to Final Fantasy IX, and we're going after Kuja! Eventually, after we do some other stuff first...

Don't look at me like that. These chocographs won't treasure hunt themselves!

Once we've finished fulfilling our treasure hunting and frog catching quotas we'll be confronting Kuja in his hidden doom fortress. I mean, every villain has a hidden doom fortress. That's just logic.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and I'm working on recovering from my last run-in with the Inchoate Flesh. That means training up a new batch of heroes to replace the dead ones, and scouring the Warrens for anything that isn't nailed down so we can sell it.

Also, I discover that ancient altars practically humming with eldritch power and adorned with ominous incantations can be dangerous. Who would've guessed.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and we're ready to try out the Hellion for the first time. She is quite nice.

...Okay, really she is a ball of unbridled barbaric fury, but CONTROLLING her is quite nice.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and in this episode I'll be taking on the boss that has given me more trouble than any other enemy in this entire game so far: The Necromancer.

Let's see how it goes.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and things are looking up. We have a decent roster of experienced heroes, and we're making progress toward upgrading the hamlet. Things are going so well that I decide to take on the Alluring Siren. Let's see how that goes.

Also, we have the first appearance of the Antiquarian in this episode. Let's see what she can do.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and we're still trucking along. We're training up a class of newbies to replace the heroes who we've lost in previous excursions, and it goes pretty well.

Fresh off of that, we take a group of more experienced heroes on a Veteran difficulty mission in the warrens and... it goes well.

I'm starting to get a bad feeling about this.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and now that we have a full team of experienced heroes, we're taking on a Medium difficulty mission in preparation to take on the Necromancer. Since we're going through a short skirmish mission in the Cove, nothing can possibly go wrong... Right?

Also, we get another visit from my stalker... Yay.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and as I promised at the end of the last episode, we're taking on the Sodden Crew. That's why they're in the thumbnail, because that is the boss that we fight in this episode...

Okay, I've just been informed that the boss in the thumbnail is actually the Swine Prince. I wonder how that happened. The caption guy must be messing with me since I cut his hours.

Also, in this video we have another visit from an old friend.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and in this episode, we're finally going to solve the expidition's ongoing financial problems...

It involves a zany scheme.

P.S. There are some audio issues in this episode. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get rid of them in editing, so we're stuck with them. Luck us.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and this time we're taking on a new boss: The Sodden Crew.

I've put together a strong team, I've got firewood for setting up camp, bandages and antivenom to deal with bleed and blight, food for healing and managing hunger, medicinal herbs for curio interaction, and even a little holy water.

Wait, I might have forgotten something... Never mind, it must not be important.

We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and we spend most of this episode recovering from the damage that we took last episode. We do manage to upgrade a few town structures though. Yay progress!

Also, we have our first quest with an Occultist on the team. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

I've finally returned from my exile, and we'ere back to Darkest Dungeon. As promised at the end of the last episode, I'm taking on the Necromancer. It goes poorly.

Okay, let's be honest: Is anyone really surprised I fucked this up?
