  1. Just to say if anyone is considering it in the future, GrahamS is great as a DM. He's really engaging and enthusiastic, which really helps when you're new and it's all a little bit weird. Because let's be honest, it kind of is weird when you start playing and you don't really know what you're doing or how to act, or even what the other people are going to be like in the party. I don't know how the rest of the group felt to start with, but I'm fairly quiet and somewhat shy so was kind of nervous (which is ridiculous at my age) but it was blast. Big thank you to the rest of the party for playing too, you're all great and I really enjoyed our sessions. I still wish I was as cool as Clip palming a dagger and shanking that goblin in the cave though..
  2. Minor timing related spoiler if you want to skip some of the episode.
  3. So I may have been somewhat obsessively listening to campaign two over the last few months and I’m now caught up on the podcast (which makes me a week behind the show). It’s been really good though, driving to work, strolling round Leeds at lunchtime, going for a run, doing the housework. All prime critical role listening opportunities. I don’t know what to do now I’ve caught up though, do I start campaign 1 and listen to that which’ll easily fill my hours or do I listen to something similar but different? The only other thing I know that’d be similar is High Rollers and purely because the guy was on crit role. Any suggestions? I’ve listened to 1.5 episodes of campaign 1 and it’s not especially grabbing me right from the off in the same way.. googling suggests I may just need to give it time though?
  4. Because rllmuk told me to doubt it!
  5. Just as a heads up, I bought this on disk originally then sold it on. Bought the complete edition on the psn store yesterday and I can load all my old saves fine..
  6. +1 for interest on the off chance this happens.. I’ve been enjoying playing dnd with my family enough that I think playing properly would be great. Should say I’ve played LMoP through once, but I am really good at not meta gaming. Although, would obviously understand if people preferred total newcomers.
  7. For shame, apologies. It's a toastie?
  8. We've finished our family play through of The Lost Mine of Phandelver last night. A heroic final battle, where my amazing god given powers (spirit guardians) more or less defeated everything - which was probably good as my son hadn't scaled the fight down for there only being the three of us and the halfing got trapped for a decent portion of the fight. I think our less than strict interpretations of where players are in relation to creatures probably helped there. Generally, enemies seem to always be "yeah, he's within 5ft of you" which is mostly ok, bar when the rogue actually doesn't want to be within 5ft of them. I'm rationalizing it as a bit like the walking dead, with enemies not being there and then boom! They're all lined up right next to you.. I figure there's only so many mechanics you can try taking on as a new DM anyway. My son's all in favor of starting up another asap, which other son is cool with (and really wants to be a forest gnome ranger), I'm happy with and wife is resigned to 'enjoying' for the greater good. He'd like a brand new campaign, starting at level 1 if anyone has any suggestions? He's done a bit of googling and is liking the sound of Storm King's Thunder. Which we'll probably end up doing regardless it that's what he fancies, but I'm a bit concerned it might be too open ended in places. Although I can always just herd people along, it's kind of what I was doing in lmop anyway. Plus this time rather than being the quiet cleric who doesn't like to lead I'm the wildly charismatic bard, who clearly should be leading.
  9. Episode 10 : fustercluck spoilers Loving Frank though, he makes the show.
  10. I tried playing baldur’s gate 2 again recently and it just wasn’t very good. They’d need a massive graphics and ui overhaul before I’d get excited about it. Great games, but really dated now. Surely they’d look considerably worse on a big telly than they do on a pc screen too?
  11. Just to say I didn't end up paying import tax either (bought the grip on it's own).
  12. Mark me down as another who bought this and thinks it's brilliant. So much more comfortable to hold and completely alleviates the wrist pain I was getting from the somewhat awkward angle of the switch on it's own.I did feel a bit like, "why am I buying a bit of plastic from china just because rllmuk said it was good?" and I thought it was going to be like all the other times rllmuk has let me down. You came through this time though, I'm fully back on board the rllmuk-hype train. The only negative thing I would say is I don't like the extra thumb pads and if you put them on be very careful when you take them off, otherwise you're liable to end up pulling off the actual thumbpads and you'll never get them back on quite right again. People will say, "Twist the pad around when it's on. It'll eventually slot into place", but it's a lie.

    Random question.. I pulled the thumb pad off one of my joycons. Is there anyway to get it back on flat? It’s got lots of little raised bits of rubber on the underside and tiny little slots for them to all slot into, but it’s impossible to line up. So my thumb pad is lumpy
