    1:21:12 - I spoke too soon in episode 47 about Travis and Marisha being the giggling troublemakers in the back of class... I don't know who's worse, them or Laura and Sam! I like that Laura realizes the hilarity and has to point it out to Sam and they just quietly have a moment. No one else notices!

    So Jester... who cares deeply enough about living things enough to negotiate the freedom of a small, weird, gross creature being kept for a future meal by the kobolts... just casually casts thaumaturgy to scare the shit out of this already terrified and scarred for life bugbear with the sound of a 60 foot wingspan bird who just ripped its friends in half.

      She didn't kill him. She even gave him a sick tattoo. Didn't even charge for it. If that ain't the definition of Chaotic Good, I don't know what is.

    Ok ok ok... I know it was released on 18/02. But I REALLY need to know what was making Laured anoyed in the first half hour of the game. I mean, even Sam helped her with something...

  • iHe

    That Diablo ost got me hyped! Any DM that emphasizes soundtracks knows how time consuming creating them is. Listening to hours of ost's from games/movies, organizing songs into playlists, constantly updating them, and clipping each song for smooth transitions. And this is just one aspect of immersion DM's go through to make every session enjoyable. Just another small detail that deserves more recognition

    I guess until the playlist unfucks itself I'll stop here.

    • Roxie761

      +zfish9 no problem! :)

    • zfish9

      Oh, I didn't know Critical Role had its own channel now. I was still using Geek & Sundry's playlist, and after this episode their playlist turns into a mess. Thanks for the heads up, I'll search for the new channel instead!

    • Roxie761

      There's nothing wrong with the playlist. The episodes are posted on their own channel now

    Think it's silly that your penalized for having great initiative for creatures you spawn in. It's dumb that if you roll a natural twenty then unless you rolled higher it has to wait for the next turn. But if you roll a natural 1 for it it's fine.

  • Chris Nelson

    Looks like nugget won't be entirely useless. 24 hit points and it can run 80 feet then teleport 40 a turn. And it's still just a few months old.

  • Chris Nelson
    Chris Nelson

    Suprised none of them thought to drag a team out out of the cloud when they found out damage was on the turn. Could have probably saved a few from being effected. Although they where dumb enough to all group up behind one bit of cover allowing all of them to be hit by a aoe attack so I guess it's not too surprising.

  • KnightDragul

    They must kill Fjord before he becomes a werecow!

  • FireSanctuary

    I love that Dwendalian Empire had Azuremyst Isle music and Xhorhas has Bloodmyst music! so fitting

  • Sidrick1

    I love this show but I've been starting to notice here lately that Jesters Laura is starting to show

  • Lighthaze

    that bugbear is super nice for Chaotic Evil.

  • ErichWilliam

    Liam punishing his character because people called him out just proves...people need to shut the hell up and just let them play their f**kin game.

    This episode's fight was bigtime redemption in my opinion after the young dragon's lair fight previously. That fight they wasted so many actions running around not fighting, and blatantly running away leaving their teammates behind. That encounter should've been fight, focus attacks, collect tons of loot. This fight on the other hand, they didn't do any dilly-dally. They got down to business right away, thankfully, because this was a significantly harder fight. They made so much better decisions in this fight and I felt they were robbed at the end by not being able to loot the xhorhasian's. They may not have gotten loot, but they did win back my respect.

    I love how you can kind of tell Liam is used to directing people. He's usually the one that redirects them and gets them focused when they're getting carried away.
