You can decide our fate in Gloomhaven!
Lately our game has been all about The Voice. This has been leading us to a point where we are going to have to make a big choice, a choice to free the voice or destroy it. In order to get to this point we’ve been playing both sides. Instead of just following one path we went back and made sure to cover all our bases taking both branching paths. This last scenario was the last path we hadn’t completed.
Now that this game is done we now have all the tools for our big choice. Except we aren’t going to make that choice. We are going to leave it up to our fans, those of you who join us in The Lobby, our chatroom on Twitch. Our next live play session will be on February 14th and we want you to show up and help decide our fate. Do we free the voice or try to destroy it?
As for this last scenario, it was fun one. One of my favourite parts was the very start. The fact the scenario started with us breaking down a door. That actually added an interesting tactical twist to things due to the way monsters spawn and act when a door is opened for the first time.
The overall scenario was rather difficult, but we managed to pull through. Two characters were exhausted by the end. We made some mistakes. Our Mindtheif in particular burned through her cards way too quickly. We had originally planned to have her doing the looting required for this quest but she got to the final room and we realized she may not have been able to make it out and had to turn back.
I really thought we were going to get bottlenecked at the exit but it managed to work out. I personally found this particular mission rather stressful and very long. Not one of my favourites.
