Sam’s flask says “Essik Theylas: Dunamancy Freak” I’ve come to understand that any kind of promotion in this comment makes it harder to find in the TRvision algorithm. Largely I refrain from such promotion, but regarding the attack on human rights this week in Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri, silence is not an option. You can support the rights of women at I am not affiliated with Critical Role, nor do my views necessarily reflect theirs. Find your way to fight, friends. Any moments I missed? Feel free to post them here. Is it Thursday yet?

    • @Dusty Herrin The guy is polite, but he is the same as every other disingenuous right-leaning "debator" on the net. Presents things as "fact" but doesn't back it up, even when called on those alternative facts. Doesn't actually accept facts that presented or look them up to counter them if incorrect. Asks questions to which the answer has already been given and he would've known this if he was actually paying attention to what was already said. His intention is to sealion and waste time. This type of common practice by right-leaning muppets deserves nothing but insults.

    • @Sebastian Silverfox TLDR too much waffling nonsense. No, you asked when i "see" a child as alive. Given I don't have fucking X-ray vision I won't see a live child until it is born. But I go with Scientific facts on that It is not a living human child until it has developed a nervous system and a brain. Until it has developed a brain it cannot be considered sentient. And again you care nothing for the rights of the woman involved and as a man who cannot bear children, you really should shut the fuck up now you condescending misogynistic fuckwad.

      Tatakai no KamiTatakai no Kami9 gün önce
    • @Tatakai no Kami So (and I am trying to lay the groundwork here so I am completely clear on where you stand) you are contending that a human being is not alive until they are delivered and breathing independently? I am trying to pin down exactly what you believe the line is that distinguishes a living human being from not being alive. If we are talking about the scientific community, the "alive at birth" view has fallen out of popularity due to the many problems in defending it. The biggest issue being that there is no clear line to separate the living from the not living and we can clearly see that a fetus shows all the qualities associated with being alive even from the earliest stages. You may continue to assert the reverse but it simply is not the mainstream view. Certainly there are outliers who still cling to the belief but anyone can claim "scientists claim _____" and at some point, somewhere they are probably right. Regardless, perhaps we should focus less on what scientists claim and more on where we, ourselves, stand. After all, we both could claim our set of experts and say that we have other people believe what we do but does that really serve to advance the discussion? I wonder if it really does. Now as for the case you wanted me to site (sorry your long post was hard to follow due to the confusing format and irregular spacing so I misunderstood what you were asking) I will try and look it up again, though it has been months. I believe it was regarding the Alabama law. I had one more thing I wanted to bring up but work calls so I will wait... Besides, it is probably easier for both of us to keep this more compact.

  • I usually listen to these as I work, but I happened to start this one by actually watching it. I have to say it was an absolute pleasure getting to see, first, Travis, and then, Matt notice the picture on Sam's absurd flask at 19:50ish. Also, Travis, I feel your pain while Beau unnecessarily continues to speak to the Bright Queen. I like Marisha, damn.

  • DMs who force their players to kill things despite having and willing to use healing magic to prevent their death are so infuriating. Nothing is more tiresome than dealing with that type of game. 0 hp is merely assumed to kill enemies because rolling death saves for every random minion is a colossal waste of time... BUT when it is important, the death process should work the same as it does for PCs. Just being dropped to 0 shouldn't be dead and gone forever if they receive immediate healing. DMs, if you force deaths on your player like this, don't be surprised when your players just start acting like murderhobos, because that's basically your own fault at that point.

  • 3:50:05 For anyone curious, Matt was checking the specifics of the Sending spell. If you know the person using Sending on you, you instantly recognize them, and if not, it just you simply don't know who just talked to you, making it impossible to impersonate someone with it. Matt then checked the map to see if Obann could have seen Jester to recognize her.

  • oh look at me "screams Beau* let me try to play two empires at the same time, without a plan, ressources, might, intel or anything at all. And if i can't have it that way to save everyone then i try to discuss it for 15hours. That's just really annoying these last few episodes. Trying to play one even two empires for what reason?... it feels really redundant in that regard. I like it if characters think about what they want to do. But constantly trying to one up everyone around oneself to such a degree, that is way, way, way beyond your characters possibilities get's on my nerves and frankly feels out of character and makes me skip parts since there's no progress to be had. 55 Minutes and nothing happened, besides the Brightqueen now knowing about the attack. That could have been done in 5 Minutes.
