    Oh man...you all clean up stunningly! However, Laura stole the show. 😍 I love the power difference between the drow and the party. Its a bit clear they are getting into something beyond them. Gonna be insteresting to see how far they make it!

    Holy Crap! I Just recognised the music around the one hour mark! It's from Diablo 2... I think it's the Crypt Music. ua-my.com/watchvideo/%D0%B2%D1%96%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE-CdpBFsi2Gg4.html

    I won't lie, during that big skirmish I was hoping the random bandit group would join in to redeem themselves on behalf of the Mighty Nine. It was already a shitshow, might as well have been a bigger shitshow.

    The battle was so frustrating to watch. They stood there for 10 minutes watching the rangers get slaughtered while they talked.

  • Carlos

    Hi! Someone knows when will the subtitles be up?

  • 505DGuy

    Full on bisexual panic the moment this episode started. The suits, the beards, the dresses. The way Matt said we'll see how this evening progresses

  • mabangin

    When do the closed captions usually go up after the episode is uploaded?

    At 1:48:56 when beau screamed I got an ad. A Ford ad. So beau screams and then it just goes 'Ford' I lost my shit, it's like Fjord was trying to silence her.

    That moment you realize you are hearing Diablo 2 music in the background! :D

    What’s compress gravity, I never heard of it before

    • Nerdonis

      Presumably a spell unique to the new school of magic Matt created.

  • SSShermanable

    Travis Willingham telling us to ignore what people say on the internet is wisdom to live by

  • Sos12345

    3:29:31 "We would protect you." "Against Rodan? I'm not so sure." Best joke of the episode in my opinion. Travis gives me life. Marisha's alt rock joke was great too.

    This playlist is incredibly convoluted now. I should hope someone could keep this playlist as just "Campaign 2" content, and just create a new playlist for all of these new videos.

    2:43:20 Applause to the artist for remembering this interaction. And ouch, that's painful now that we know.

    3:58:40 He said it. We were all thinking it, but Liam said it. Friggin Balgruf.

    I thought they where supposed to be releasing these once a week. It's been well over two weeks and the last one was delayed to.

    • Roxie761

      They are, but now the episodes are posted on Critical Role's channel not Geek and Sundry

  • Chris Nelson

    Glad Travis dropped a Bulgura. Found it a bit annoying that he didn't when they where fighting the dragon dashila and others earlier and he didn't.

    58:05 Matt playing Diablo 2 music in the background... I can die happy now

  • Chris Nelson
    Chris Nelson

    Looked like the dm completely scripted the first encounter. Didn't roll any die for the opening attacks and he didn't let the players join in when he did let the guards who where ambushed. Cheap cunt.

    • Chris Nelson
      Chris Nelson

      +Kubolons Nah he was playing against himself and the players he's used to manipulating. He's experienced enough that he could anticipate the actions in the ambush and retaliation round and and roll without too much thought at such an early stage. I just fucking hate it when he scripts fights like this. Early in the bastard skipped everyone's turn when nott ran up to the knolls and if the players hadn't called him on it he'd have killed nott then and there. Also a few fights where they try to escape but he tells them without prompting that their character doesn't want to do that or he only gives them a turn or so of a headstart when combat begins even though they should have atleast 5 or so.

    • Kubolons

      Oh yeah, because everyone wanted to spend 2 hours watching a dm rolling for 30 actions a turn, that would be very interesting.

  • Daniel

    That combat was epic, and a hell of an introduction to the kind of forces they're going to move up against.

  • Daniel

    Yup, it's just a superstition and doesn't affect the statistics whatsoever. But if being angry at the dice and swapping them out makes you FEEL better, then it matters :)

  • J.J. Preston

    Imagine when Caleb gets to lvl 17 and gains access to true polymorph, he could then transform Into a Dragon or something with a challenge rating of 17! So much stuff you could do with that it's insane

    I don't know if I'm the only one wondering this, but how has caleb not learned fly by this point? I mean, sure it is Liam's decision. That's cool. But we've already seen several situations, such as the rock climb, where it could have come in handy.

    • Emile Coetzee

      +Apathetic Lungs Well. that is fair enough i'd personally use some form of flavoring to have it match more accurately, but critical role's players take spells more in the vein of fitting their characters. At least from what we've seen, in my opinion. So that makes sense. Thank you for your input. :)

    • Apathetic Lungs
      Apathetic Lungs

      Based on his spells I think Liam is preferring to learn spells that fit with his theme of being a transmutative wizard, the only real spell I've seen him use with any consistency without slinging muck and such around is his light spell. Basically, I think it's possible he doesn't think it fits with his character.

  • Countess Coloratura

    AoE poison spells like Cloudkill and similar things don't say they deal damage on cast, and it's kinda bugging me how many times they have in this campaign, if that's actually how they work.

    Just a little dnd nerd out here. Caduceus should not be able to cast bane and use his staff which also lets him CAST giant insect at the same time.. they are concentration spells. :( but this was a good session

  • Tyfighter76

    Am I the only one that still gets hyped over this amazing intro?!

  • snappledragon2

    Loving the Diablo II ambiance!

  • Chris Gee

    So, I've brought this up so many times, but I'm so proud of Marisha. Her journey of learning how to play the monk has been excellent. So long ago I was screaming for her to use the stunning fist, and now, she finds the biggest target, runs up tries to stun, fails, learns con save, STUNS AGAIN!!! She never really figured Druid out, but we may see a Monk at Scanlan levels of class mastery.

  • Baraz

    I like (sincerely) how Taliesin has non verbal expressions unique to his character. The faces he makes does remind us of the drawings done for his character.

    Dat Diablo music in the background tho. Makes me imagine Xhorhas looks like places in Diablo 2, which honestly doesn't seem that far off from the descriptions of the landscape.
