Part 87: The Road North - recap
Game film: LP The Road North (TFL 1.5)
So... we're off to see the wizard, it sounds like.
But first a little diversion to electrocute some zombies. Gr'Uman's Last Stand is randomly placed among a few different spots in this mission, so you need to follow the trail for a bit even when replaying this. It's a slow start to the mission, but the trip back out again makes up for it.
Unfortunately, like the Bow of Stoning, the Bow of Furious Incandescence never makes another appearance in the game, not even offstage. That was OK with the Bow of Stoning -- it's just something we lucked into while looking for Alric -- but since the whole point of this mission was to recover the BFI it's odd that it doesn't have any effect on the plot. My vague memory of this mission was actually that gr'Uman had been carrying the arm of The Watcher, and that's what we had to retrieve, with the BFI as a bonus. Which would make more sense, but the mission goals don't actually say that.
Oh well, still a fun mission!
