Enjoyed Crash Pandas (and Grog's one shot) but I still think Honey Hiest is the most complete package of mechanic, character and fun.

 

The last podcast

 

Nott/Sam's breakdown at Ford/Travis' captaining...ending with "Caleb I want to talk about mutiny" was amazing

This weeks episode may be up later than usual - the sound on the stream from the Live event in New York had lots of issues.. so they are supposedly sorting this for the Youtube upload..

 

In the meantime here's Sam and Liam learning to tap dance..

Youtube upload of this episode has been delayed a day or so while they continue to fix audio issues that occurred during the New York live game..

https://critrole.com/c2e37-vod-updates/

 

Some of the audio appears to have been dropped out completely at the source, but those sections will be transcribed.. (it wasn't more than a few seconds here and there, but there were an annoying number of occurrences..

Not sure what they will do for the podcast yet.. they can perhaps get the cast to dub the lines back in, but that's not possible in time to get the Youtube version up..

I think Taliesin has been about 1000% percent more watchable since shifting to Caduceus.

 

There certainly seems to be a lot more of a character there.. Molly never really felt very defined besides his ostentatious appearance.. Plus the amnesia aspect actively counted against that.. in the end he seems to have been more useful in unifying the group through trauma than anything else..

 

Liam's 'Between the Sheets' is a good one.. he discusses the effect the loss of his mother after a long illness had on him and how getting some of that out through Vax helped him cope..

..and his undying love for Sam!

I have been listening to this season of Critical Role and have been enjoying it, but the episodes run a little too long for my tastes and it has meant that I'm not going back to it as much as I expected. However, I started listening to Not Another D+D Podcast at the same time and have been completely hooked. It's definitely sillier than Critical Roll and edited like mad, but it is so much fun. Has been really nice to see one of the players go from knowing nothing about D+D to being completely hooked on it. Well worth a listen if you need more even more of a D+D fix!

Fair play to them for trying to fix the live show - but it really is hard to listen to right now.

Which is a shame because everyone (up to about an hour in) is having a whale of time with good action, RP and humor.

im not convinced that Molly won't be back.

 

I still don't think Mercer likes killing characters unless it is plot-led rather than battle-led.

 

There are times he has deflected an attack or made a decision to avoid a possible death. Not fudging rolls or damage or anything really clunky just a couple of times he has just changed attack focus slightly.

 

This isn't necessarily a criticism as some groups play for the story/rp and overarching themes. I think Matt Mercer leans on that side and plays for the story. Totally valid way to play but makes me think that Molly isn't gone completely.
