Gloomhaven: Discover the Grisly Truth of the Barrow Lair

This is the second scenario in my Gloomhaven solo campaign playthrough on Twitch. For something different (and for a video length that is watchable, at least), I’ve sped up the video of the original stream, and tried to live commentate what was happening. The result is mixed, quite frankly, and it is something that I’m clearly going to need to practice. That is, if I decide to do it again.

Also, the ‘background music’ isn’t.

Anyway, I hope you get at least a flavour of the gameplay from the video.

It was a great scenario, and while I missed the treasure chest and only completed one of three battle goals, I felt like I did a pretty good job. Specifically, kiting out of range of the lumbering melee enemies, and using both the Spellweaver’s and the Tinkerer’s summons to tank damage, block doorways and do ranged damage.

Once again, only Mason the Tinkerer remained unexhausted at the end of the battle, but the other two went out with poise and purpose.

There are a handful of rules mistakes – most of which I caught during the game, but some that snuck through. Bonus points if you can identify those.

Spoilers inside. Enjoy!
