Beat all scenarios through deck 2 on legendary difficulty using Lem. Through all my testing I was never able to accomplish this feat.

I'm not sure there is a way to prove you have done such an amazing thing, but if you manage to do this let me know. I'll say your name and something nice about you in a casual conversation.

I've tried to solo with Lem in the physical game.

 

Only Lem himself could find the words to do it justice.

 

Challenge noted.

So far, Approach to Thistletop has been my hardest mission on increased difficulty. +2d4 for all goblin difficulties, plus another 2 at the goblin fort, I had to run it 3 times to get it with Kyra/Meri just on Heroic. So far no real issues with any of the others, even on Legendary, but that one was tricksy. Curious how Lem solo fares.

Did you take Lem through the other Difficulties FIRST to beef him up, or did you start him with a fresh deck in Legendary Brigandoom!?  (Is the latter even possible?)

You could start him in Legendary with a fresh deck as long as you have unlocked legendary with another party. :)

AND NOTHING BAD WOULD HAPPEN...

 

Is that your intent with this challenge?

The only proper way to attempt this challenge is to obtain a Twitch stream, an 8-hour block of time, and a bottle of your favorite hard liquor. Then, commence.

Of course that's how I'm going to do it! Started on it now, but as you said, it's kinda hard to prove (I'm making screenshots of the map with all but one location closed, showing the connections between locations to prove it's Legendary, and screenshots of Lem defeating the villain at that location to prove he won and you can also see he's alone in both of those).

Of course it does. Lem's absolutely going to have to continue his amazing story!

i'm pretty jealous you managed this already. Lem is my absolute favorite character, <3<3<3 and my goto in the paper game.  but .. i'm ashamed to say I didn't buy him first.  I wanted to try characters I don't normally play.  BUT as soon as I have another 1500 gp i'll pickup Lem and join you in the Legendary Lem club!

Hurray! It is a very exclusive club only for refined and eloquent halfling gentlemen. *nods sagely, smoking pipe*

 

And what can I say, since I already had him unlocked (bought the bundle right away, even though I have all of it in physical form already... I love this game), I just had to do it! And it was fun, so I was pretty eager to do it quickly, at that!

Lem was my first unlock.  He's the second character I played in the card game (specifically, Class Deck Lem, the scary one) after Merisiel (who, to be fair, was the only character in that group who didn't die).  After my Guild-Lem died (skinny-dipping in the Abyssal River, trying to entice the hot Kyra twins in), I've been forcing myself to play someone else so I don't get hung on a theme.  I've since played Fighters and Monks, Sorcerers and Druids, Barbarians and Bloodragers, Wizards and Paladins.

 

But in the video game, he's been in every party since I unlocked him.

Mission accomplished.  I won't try to emulate your epic retelling, but I will say we had difficulty in the same places.

I'd like to know how you developed lem on the other thread.  I made some decisions I kind of regret.

Posted my feat selections and current deck in the other thread!
