MU'AZZAM!


What is Enclave?

Enclave is a Third Person Dark Fantasy action game with mild platforming elements made by Starbreeze Studios in 2002. It has excellent presentation, and some pretty advanced mechanics for the time, that are brought down slightly by poor melee combat design and a lackluster story. I still love it though, which is why I'm LP-ing it!


Okay. What kind of LP is this going to be?

Apart from "kind of a disaster" since this is my first attempt? It's going to be a 100% run, which means I'll be unlocking every character and collecting all of the gold in every level. It will also be semi-skilled seeing as I've beaten the game many times. To keep it interesting I've brought along Dooky Dingo, who has never played the game, and has graciously agreed to commentate with me. I mostly just hope you have a good time watching us, and maybe check the game out for yourself!

Will there be any thread interaction?

I'm glad you asked, you charming and intelligent person! Starting after episode 1, the thread will get to vote on which character I will be using for the next mission (or missions, depending on length).

What about spoilers?

As I said, the story isn't much to talk about, but the new characters/mechanics are pretty neat, and I'd like to keep those under wraps until they show up. There is one super big no-no: DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE COMPLETION BONUS, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, UNTIL AFTER IT HAS BEEN UNLOCKED! This is non-negotiable.

No More Votes! Thank you for participating in my thread!



If I had thought ahead, this would have been the second post.


Light Campaign Characters


Knight

The Muder-Hobo and our first hero, he's the toughest of the light heroes. Can equip Swords, Shields and Crossbows (no poison bolts).



Huntress

The light side sniper, and a personal favorite. Can equip Bows (which can use Sniper, Fire/Flame, Grenade/Bomb, Magic and Burst arrows), Crossbows (regular, magic and poison bolts), and Daggers.



Druid

No Pants McGee. Can equip Staves and Daggers. Is the only one who can use the Astral staff (and therefore summon earth golems and shoot homing birds).



Halfling

The most I've ever turned around on a character. Can't really take a hit until she has armor, but moves and attacks much faster than any other light hero. Can become a total powerhouse with a long-hafted axe. Can equip Axes, Shields and Crossbows (with regular and poison bolts).



Engineer

Gnome Stereotype. Can equip Shields, Hammers, and Crossbows. Is the only light hero to get Bombs (explosive and grease).



Wizard

Where did he come from? Can equip Staves and Daggers, but not the Astral Staff (so no birds or golems).





Dark Campaign Characters


Assassin

Like the Huntress, but more Emo. Still a total rear end kicker. Can equip Bows (which can use Sniper, Fire/Flame, Grenade/Bomb, Magic and Burst arrows), Crossbows (regular, magic and poison bolts), and Daggers.



Berserker

Like the Knight, but slower and a much bigger target, and therefore worse. Can equip Hammers, Shields and Crossbows (no poison bolts).



Sorceress

Metal Queen, throwing the horns! Like the Wizard, but cooler in every way. Can equip Staves and Daggers.



Goblin

Counterpart to the Halfling, but with glowing eyes. Speaks Sweedish, but is otherwise identical. Can equip Axes, Shields and Crossbows (with regular and poison bolts).



Bombardier

A Tougher, taller version of the Engineer. Has a sweet cod-piece. Can equip Shields, Swords, and Crossbows. Is the only dark hero to get Bombs(duh)(explosive and grease).



Lich

Wicked cool skeleton-lady. Like the Druid, but has mastered the concept of pants. Is the only hero who can summon shadow skeletons and shoot bats with the Staff of the Damned(which is a scythe!)! Can equips Staves and Daggers.


Coming soon:

-Nothing! This LP is over!

This was my favourite action game as a kid. I found it super difficult and had to cheat. I think it had a lot to do with the controls on the xbox as I bought it on steam and found it much easier.

Imma vote huntress.

Still a little confused on a point: Is everything outside of the Enclave just all monsters all the time and the Enclave is the last bastion of anything resembling "society" or are the Enclave just super elitist isolationists?

Looks like it's time for the Huntress to show her stuff! Headshots, ahoy!


In answer to your question Lotish, outside of the Enclave is a mix. The Dreg'Atar live there Enclave, but so too does the rest of the world. There are non monsterous nations on the far side of the rift, the Dreg'Atar are just the only ones crazy enough to cross it.

Episode 2 is here! Sorry for the long wait, but an evil Djinn attacked me in my appartment and cursed all videos I export to be corrupted. Not that I'm saying there were any technical issues, but if there were/are, then that would be the reason.

This time the Huntress steps up to the plate, and shows off why ranged weapons kick rear end, or might in the hands of a skilled player.

I like the Huntress more than the hobo, to be fair, so I want to see more of her before we get the new character. Knight already had two levels to himself, right? Only fair she get the same.

Video Progress Update: apparently, my processor is having trouble keeping up with recording the way I've been doing it, which resulted in at lot of footage missing from the middle of the video Dooky and I were set to commentate over.

Your commentary is mixed in a bit too early guys, your reactions could consistently be heard before whatever you were reacting to happened.

As for the character for the next mission, we just got the Halfling, it's only logical to take her for a spin. Although I dimly remember her being quite underwhelming at this point in the game.

As far as brown colours and grimy faces go, there is a sense that the world design is still a bit more detailed and interesting to look at than your typical grimdark fantasy. I can agree that Enclave looks like a game that had some passion to its design, and a good time to play through.

Keep it up, gents! Also I'm up for rogue gameplay.

Celebrate! The next mission will mark the half-way point of the Light campaign! Who will be the one to bring us to 50%? Will it be the triumphant return of the Knight? Will the Engineer get to show us how it's done? Is it time again for Druid MacNoPants? Do you hate me enough to vote for the god-damned Halfling again?

This episode also marks a switch from Steam audio to Discord, and my first attempt at baby level editing! Let me know how it went.

In fairness, I first had this game on the Xbox, where aiming was nearly impossible and clicking the right thumb stick was the jump button. It meant that the Knight was the only way I could consistently beat levels, and even then, I never beat the game legitimately until I got the PC version.

You haven't beaten the game legitimately until you've beaten it with the halfling.
