I have often thought of streaming party games to my upstairs TV.

Streaming was being flakey, so I installed on the laptop.

Save games were there.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

In level 2 of the first dungeon, under the tavern.

1. I don't like how the sewers wrap around left to right, and up and down. Makes mapping confusing as hell.

2. Magician's magic points are the limiting factor of dungeon crawls. They run out way too fast.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Installed BT4 and Soda Dungeon on my Surface book while bored watching the Titans beat the Cowboys.

I'm happy to report that both had my latest save games available.

Is there a "boss" to the lvl 2 sewers under the tavern? I found the stone spider pretty fast, and have otherwise mapped 90% of it.

The, "it's warm here / Walls are slimey" signs don't seem to have a point.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

My memory (which could be wrong) is that you just need to find some things written on the walls. Thought they were in level 3 of the sewers.

Snap, I guess the stairs down are in the 10% I haven't mapped yet.

It's incredible that they could put 60 hours of gaming on 2 5.25" floppy disks.

How in the hell did you guys finish BT1 so fast. I'm currently in about hour 20 of exploring the first dungeons under the wine shop. I think I just found the portal down to the last (?) level.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Not quite the finish Gordon was probably referring to, but finished none the less!

I'm going the distance.

But my mages aren't even maxed out on spells yet so I can change classes for the first time. SO, you still got farther than I have, so far.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I'm with you Gordo. I'm nearing the third level in Harken's.

Once you grind your mages, the game gets super easy

Seems to take me about about 4 hours (2-4 sessions) to completely map each level of the sewer dungeon, and as I said, I'm about done mapping level 3. Seems like I've been in them a long time.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

When I change classes, I assume I gain those early levels fast, again, and I get tons of spell points? Spell points are still my limiting factor. I typically don't leave the dungeon until I'm under 10, each.

You are correct.
