The video is top notch as usual, thanks Matt.
I remember there was a flaw in the first Bard's Tale. If you selected to be a monk (can't remember what race, maybe human), and let all characters in the party be monks. All you needed was to use the staff and fist, they would gain experience really fast and as the game goes on repel any spells used by the enemies. After a while they simply wouldn't die, didn't take long either.
