Darkest Dungeon - Through the Feuersturm by CorsairsEdge Darkest Dungeon - Through the Feuersturm by CorsairsEdge
I will forever regret not taking a screenshot of my battle with Vvulf in Darkest Dungeon, so I drew it instead. Three virtues, one death.

The characters I had heading into the fight, in no particular order:
Digby, the Vestal. Only two (in-game) weeks ago, she was the sole survivor of a failed Champion expedition to sink the Drowned Crew permanently. I wasn't sure what to expect fighting Vvulf, so she was here for her redemption, and I figured I needed a healer more reliable than an Occultist. The first two encounters brought her to death's door. The enemies focus-stressed her. She was having none of it. She became Stalwart. When this happened, the enemies shifted their attacks to the Crusader and Leper.

Baldwin II, the Leper. The only character I've renamed in order to keep the legacy of my previous champion Leper. Unfortunately, he too died; bled out in the middle of the battle with Vvulf before his resolve was even tested.

Reynauld the Crusader and Dismas the Highwayman. Up until this point, I've been playing them fairly conservatively and trying to keep them alive for the achievement. Reynauld was the main target of Vvulf's bombs, but chose to be Courageous when he was brought to death's door. Dismas became Focused when he became the next target.

It was the most epic and close battle I've ever had in my gaming history outside of XCOM. Despite the triumphant outcome, they could have all died in an instant. Every turn was keeping them off Death's Door.

The idea to draw this battle has been floating around in my head for a while. I beat Vvulf five months ago.

In case you're curious, party order was:
Vestal-Highwayman-Crusader-Leper

This game is just too cool for words, and I love the effort put into this piece. It reflects the nature of the game's intense combat perfectly

Thanks! Yeah it's a very unforgiving game at times. This was not one of those times!
