    Compounded interest, I think.

    Normal thieves cap their backstab at 5x damage. As a high-level Assassin kit, I should cap at 7x, but two separate mods included weapons that each improve my backstab multiplier by one, so it's nonuple damage. Then crits double damage, yes. An 18x multiplier overall.

    I was backstabbing with a 2d3+4 magical dagger, which I'm reasonably sure rolled double threes. I also had Gauntlets of Weapon Expertise (+2 damage), a Luckstone (+3 damage), and a Girdle of Frost Giant Strength (+9 damage from strength, although this should only be multiplied by the crit and not by the backstab; conveniently, this just reduces the multiple of 18 by one).

    Looks like I'm missing a miscellaneous point of pre-backstab damage somewhere, but I can at least account for ((15*9)+9)*2.

    Sheesh. As for what all that represents... since it is a dagger at the end of the day, I'd say it represents the skill with which you can land a damaging blow. Hit points would represent how well the other person can deflect, etc. So you're so skilled with the dagger that not even a god can stop you from getting through their defenses and hitting their vital point.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    I'd imagine it as something like this.


    (Ignore the tired "can Shiki kill Servants?" meme. I'm talking about the imagery alone.)

    Also, as is customary, I found more cut content on my way through the BGII files. Literally happens every time I poke my head in.

    Journal entries:
    Vakola attempts to take revenge on Keldorn.
    We met up with an old acquaintance of Keldorn's...a man by the name of Vakola, who holds Keldorn responsible for some manner of 'betrayal' which Keldorn denies.

    We encountered Keldorn's old 'friend', Vakola, again in the Sea's Bounty. This time, it became apparent that Keldorn and Vakola were once team-members in the Order, and that Keldorn turned him in for accepting bribes. The man's bitterness brought him and his friends to attack Keldorn and I... and now he is dead.

    Vakola's a thirteenth level Cleric with 18 WIS and a surprisingly good spell selection, though no items.

    He has seven different lackeys assigned to him (which might make him the biggest "party" battle in BGII were he included?):
    Thug, a sixteenth level fighter with 18 in all physical stats and full plate, a long bow, and a long sword;
    Mage, a twelfth level Necromancer with some generic mage spells assigned but no necromancy ones except the traditional anti-summoning Death Spell;
    Archer, a twelfth level fighter with a heavy crossbow and a random selection of Druid and Cleric spells (?);
    Thief, a thirteenth level melee thief;
    Goon, a ninth level sword-and-shield Paladin with the same random priestly spell selection as Archer;
    Mage, an unkitted tenth level mage with just a lower level version of the previous Mage's spell selection;
    Thug, a twelfth level ranged Thief with a light crossbow.

    so battlefront 2... despite everything i'm having fun - and thank goodness i'm decent enough at the game to the point that the grind and getting star cards doesn't effect how well i do

    the campaign being as short as it was is a disappointment, but come dec 13 the 1st season dlc comes out so yay free content...

    I've been playing a lot of Dragon's Dogma. It has a lot of flaws but I've already completed the game three times and have no intention of stopping yet so it's doing something right. Ripping out thirty hearts out of an undead dragon never gets old.

    Also been playing some Nioh also on pc. I haven't been having many issues with the port and the gameplay is something I've been enjoying quite a bit more than Dark Souls 3.

    And about Dark Souls 3, just in the starting area and I already know that this is the souls game I'm going to enjoy the least. I'm already tired of the endless shades of grey.

    Get used to it. It's 95% of the game.
