  • Hi, What's the background music at the end the episode (last 10 minutes)? Is it possible to get, I think I'd like to use it on my own D&D table .

    lo warlo war5 dakika önce
  • My only comment on the D&D Beyond add is: ... 1:15:00 Nott is Nott A Thief. 1:55:00 That moment you tell your patron god a "too crazy to work" idea, and then you get a Natural 20 and make it look actually good. 1:57:00 "I trust your judgment, Jester." That line was later etched unto the tombstones of many NPCs... 2:28:00 Fast travel, that thing all the "cool" Skyrim players never do because "it breaks immersion." They'll happily craft a dagger by throwing an iron ingot and a piece of leather into a forge, tho. Because that is so very immersive... 2:29:30 The Moorbounders will be fine. There's a large chunk of meat heading towards that outpost, so they'll have food. A bit stringy and though, probably, but still food. And if they get hungry afterwards, hey, there's also dozens of soldiers there!

  • Gods the captions are so off on this video. Usually they're spot on for the CritRole videos, so I was really caught off guard. It's especially difficult since Liam's voice is so hard to make out on the video call.

  • Well, it seems to me, Abyssal Forces are performing a classic, 'divide and conquer' tactic. They are doing things, getting each side to blame the other, whilst obviously a larger plan is at play. No one in the party seems to have guessed at that though. Most likely wrong, but they are too focused on how they look to the factions, and very much held back by indecisiveness.

  • "How old are you?" "Old enough." That's literally my answer whenever someone asks me! Old enough! Because I'm old enough (in the US) to drink, marry, drive, vote, fight, smoke, rent a car, etc. I don't do hardly any of those things, but I'm old enough!

    Amanda CiccioneAmanda Ciccione14 gün önce
  • Maybe it's me but I don't understand why they're so bent on believing that they helped free the laughing hand. I mean Obann was going there anyway, wether Jester had scryed or not, wether they had decided to go to that house with the goblin & the invisible bugbear or not... At least they tried to do something. Trying to prevent something from happening and failing vs actually facilitating and helping that thing happen, that's two completely different things.

    Sébastien AugerSébastien Auger14 gün önce
    • I think they're referring more the the fact that they literally(and somewhat knowingly) helped him through the chambers to get there. In that sense, they 100% did help release the Laughing Hand. They also tried to stop him, and they do now have valuable Intel on the situation, but neither of those facts suprecede the fact that they're at least partially responsible.
