Chalice Chat 10: The Mad Sages of the Hintertombs

We begin the process of delving ever deeper into the chalice dungeons in this episode by making our first Depth 3 chalice. Every foe we face at this point is significant, but perhaps none are as terrifying as the so-called sages, with their uncanny speed and inscrutable attack patterns. Still, we press onwards, doing our best to explore the first two main sections of the initial layer, and halting only after discovering another passage to examine before we can face the first boss. As always, if you have any advice, comments, questions, or suggestions for me, I’d be happy to hear from you. Thanks for watching, and I hope you enjoy the video:

Chalice Chat 9: Blood-Starved Battle

Once again we start out spending some prep time in the Hunter’s Dream, improving our gem setup and leveling up, and then we dive back in to the final layer of the first Hintertomb Chalice Dungeon. There, despite managing to confuse myself multiple times into getting lost, we actually manage to explore the layer and end up grabbing some treasure. Finally, after a little reorientation, we head through the boss door only to come face to face with a truly familiar foe. As always, if you have any advice, comments, questions, or suggestions for me, I’d be happy to hear from you. Thanks for watching, and I hope you enjoy the video:

Chalice Chat 8: Giant Problems

After a brief visit back to the Hunter’s Dream to stock up on supplies, we continue our exploration of the first Hintertomb Chalice Dungeon. What we discover, among other things, is that this is a labyrinth of considerable size, with numerous side passages and branching paths filled with deadly traps, devious foes, and even a poison swamp. After fighting through all of that, we come face to face with the boss of the second layer… only to find it’s essentially a new look for an old foe. As always, if you have any advice, comments, questions, or suggestions for me, I’d love to hear from you. Thank you for watching, and I hope you enjoy the video:

Chalice Chat 7: Hintertomb Hijinks

Having successfully navigated the labyrinth of Central Pthumeru, we try our luck this time in the Hintertombs. Tricks and traps of all kinds await, and good old fashioned negligence comes into play on more than one occasion, but finally we make our way to the boss of this initial layer. There we discover that it is in fact something we’ve already seen before: a monstrously oversized boar with a taste for human flesh. Thus our showdown begins. As always, if you have any advice, comments, questions, or suggestions for me, I encourage you to share it. Thanks for watching, and I hope you enjoy the video:

Chalice Chat 6: A Deadly Descendant

After a relatively quick look at the blood gem system at the start of the video (skip to 5:29 if you’d rather jump right to the action), we head back once more into the Central Pthumeru Chalice Dungeon in search of revenge. Climbing back up the ladder into the room where I had previously met my demise, we manage to push forward this time and throw the switch to open the boss door. From that point on, all that remains is a showdown with this dungeon’s final boss. As usual, if you have any advice, comments, questions, or suggestions for me, I would love to hear from you. Thank you very much for watching, and I hope you enjoy the video:

Chalice Chat 5: Traps and Treasures

After a brief stop in the Hunter’s Dream, we quickly return to our exploration of the Central Pthumeru Chalice Dungeon. Returning to a mysterious door from before the first lamp of Layer 3, we take some time to investigate and find ourselves inside a treasure room. Though cautious of traps, we make sure to pick up what loot we can find, leaving behind only the promise of a one-way door. Then, shortly after returning to the main path, I quickly find myself ambushed and overmatched, bringing the episode to a close. As usual, if you have any advice, comments, questions, or suggestions for me, I would encourage you to pass them along. Also as usual, I’d like to thank you very much for watching. I really hope you enjoy the video!

Chalice Chat 4: Dying to Learn

We continue on to face the second boss of Central Pthumeru in this episode of the Chalice Chats, though not before we run into some stiff resistance from a particular group of enemies. As I die over and over again, I take a brief moment to reflect on the importance of staying determined and trying to learn and improve oneself in video games and in life both. Then I proceed to die to the boss. Fortunately, though, I’m able to discover something of a trick in the midst of the next confrontation, and we’re able to move on to the third layer for next time. As always, since we’re still in the early days of this series, if you have any advice, comments, questions, or suggestions for me, I’d love to hear it. But even if not, I’d still like to thank you for watching, and express my wish that you find this video enjoyable. I hope to see you next time!
