Congratulations on beating Part II!

I can imagine making these posts rather tedious. Do you take screenshots during your current playthrough and write a note about it or reflect on your thoughts during a replay? I know there is some editing involved, then there is the matter of keeping them in order, uploading them somewhere, and pasting them into the post proper alongside the commentary.

At any rate, I look forward to your next project, whatever it may be. Until then, enjoy your break!

Sire: Thanks!

I don't write anything down while I'm playing, I just take a bunch of screenshots (which are automatically saved in a folder) - this way I can play without interruptions and if I need to restart the scenario it's not any extra work. Then later I go through the screenshots, delete the redundant ones, and write the commentary based on the screenshots/my memory. (Writing the comments is definitely the most time consuming part!)

(p.s. I'm currently playing Red Winter :) - I'll write some comments on it soon.)

Since i read your other lets play i decided i would read this one also (even though i haven't played IftU) and it was super enjoyable!!!!!!! (I would continue putting exclamation marks but never could put down enough)

I can't wait till you write another Let's Play! :D Great job (and i like your game strategies)

:D :) ^_^ :D (I would put more smilies but no amount would be enough) I'm really happy that people liked it so much! Of course, the real credit goes to the campaign authors for making such entertaining campaigns to do playthroughs of :)

Making these was a lot of fun so I'm planning to do another one sometime!

And I would highly recommend playing IftU and After the Storm for their amazing story and characters! (I don't think I did the characterization justice since I cut out most of the text in the interest of space.)

Hey Inky,
a big thank you for investing that much work in this excellent Walkthrough !! The pictured step-by-step style are really educative and your commenting-style make the whole thing an enjoyable read. Damn, I still have so much to learn, which is probably the reason why I got stuck somewhere round Dark Hive and gave up on the whole thing. Now I feel inspired to retry...
Strange enough, I do have a Enchantress that levelled to Sylph (see screenshot) and I did the campaign around the same time as you did (May/June 2016) :hmm:

How much exclamation marks on "Great Job!!!!!!" does it take to lure you into making another one ? Got plenty left.... ;)

Hey no fair, I want a sylph too! :D
If you were playing the new version of the campaign (without the Elvish spirit and Aragwaithi recruits), then you may want to report this bug in the feedback thread.

The might be it - I do not remember an Elvish spirit or being able to recruit Aragwhaitis...I lost her anyway in the Assault on the Heart :(
But thanks to the motiviation I draw from reading the Walkthrough I finally finished the campaign. 8)

So, After the Storm, that probably means Drones again... Are you sure you want to risk your mental health for us ? ;)
