  • I'm coming back to the beginning 136 episodes into this madness. I just wanted to say that this is where I started out a little over a year ago. I have played a campaign or two myself, so I kinda knew what awaited me but I dont think I ever appreciated Matt's performance here. I mean I did, but I didnt do it adequately. This is the first episode, he is narrating a flawless rundown of the circus performance and its honestly captivating. I have never been a DM (I'll hopefully change that one day) but I imagine it like giving a speech. And that cant be easy.

  • 2:45:43 Yasha's hitpoints are impossible. She is a barbarian and only lvl 2. The most she can get, if she rolls a perfect 12 with the lvl up hp bonus, is 26 since she only has a +2 Con modifier and 12 + 12 = 24.

  • I saw some people documenting their Critical Role journeys and I thought I would do the same to motivate me to keep going, since I tend to procrastinate or forget a lot. It's kind of stupid but I thought it would help me. Starting my journey back last year during quarantine I ended up only getting so many episodes in before getting to busy to continue. I decided that while I won't be starting on episode one, I would finally continue to try and catch up. I was debating on whether to start on this one or the first, but considering this campaign is the one that caught my interest I thought it would be better to catch up here first. Hearing of it back a couple months after it first started from my sister and finally deciding watch. I'll keep everyone updated in the comments, starting my catch up binge 5/7/2021, while working on an essay that is totally not due tonight.

  • Anyone notice at 16:41 that the audio is dubbed over when Matt mentions what year it is in Wildemount for the intro? Anyone know why?!

  • Years later and I just realized something. Every now and then, Caleb repeats back a word questioningly, as if he doesn't know what that word is. For example, at 1:10:41-1:10:57, he asks what a "training" game is. This is because common is Caleb's second language. His native language is Zemnian (German). The level of detail Liam puts into his characters is amazing.

  • I just gotta say mad props to the cast in this original intro actually wording out what their intro character is saying, I can't lip read them all but I think Sam said "Let's play" when he threw his backpack and Matt said after Laura's roll "So, as you emerge from the shadows..." before it cut to everyone else and I lost track, marvellous work.

  • Well as a native German speaker, I can confirm, Vax and Vex sound very different, if you pronounce them "in German", but the difference in the English pronunciation is far smaller and harder for German speakers to make.

  • I haven't watched this episode yet but I just finished watching campaign one and am so so excited to start watching campaign two. My very first episode was part of campaign 2 and I got very interested. I then watched Undeadwood and got really hooked. I watched some one shots and then finally started the first campaign. A year later and here I am starting the next one! I've been surrounded by D&D my entire life. But always had a bad experience. My older brother was my first DM when we were young and he was pretty awful. He wouldn't make checks or anything, just constantly have us get captured or put up against creatures we couldn't kill because miraculously it would have a thousand hit points and could do fifty things in one turn meanwhile I could barely move ten feet and was not allowed to do anything else. So I stopped with him and tried asking my dad for years if I could play and he kept saying no. I realized as a teen it was because my father is a very sexist man and has an issue with his daughter playing anything fun instead of doing chores. Then I just wasn't able to play for years, no one was interested. Had some roommates and I was finally going to start playing! Until.... all of a sudden my character's backstory was being made for me and so was my goal and then even what type of creature I was going to be and the other person was now my sister without me having a say at all and nope it wasn't allowed to be changed. Oh and the story itself, we weren't allowed to do anything other than what the DM, my roommate's husband, decided we were allowed to do because he wanted us to do things his way as if we were reading a script. Finally, I got introduced to DND properly and am playing a campaign with a great group of friends who are very patient with me, We are playing 3.5 and I am a Drow disguised by magic to look like a regular Elf. I took some specific feats and just leveled up to 6 (level 4 Ranger) and am about to get my animal companion that's going to be a huge Spider. I'm happy I didn't give up on wanting to play this. D&D has been the last thing I can find interest in while I suffer with my crippling depression and mountain of other mental disabilities and now a physical disability with my knees. We've been trying very hard for me to get a Service dog but it's a hard journey and very stressful but playing D&D with my partner and my friends and watching Critical Role has been... It's like I've latched onto a rope of light after falling into darkness for years, and for once I'm able to climb up. Thank you Geek & Sundry and Thank you Critical Role.
