Marisha beating Nott inside the carpet is basically her performing an execution the way Mexican cartels kill people. It was idiotic and malicious to attack the rug like that. And then she didn't even use her turn to try and break free from the carpet.

I love how Vox Machina is basically a team born to do this sort of shit, yet its bunch of assholes with zero expertiese that decided to go full cloak and dagger. I mean, Percy, Scanlan, Vex, Vax, Keyleth they were fucking perfect for this shit even at low levels. Ofc thats what makes it funny.

So they break into two houses of super rich people, find stuff thats extremly valuable, including a big bunch of platinum coins, and take none of that to not leave a trace, (like someone would be able to tell they miss a few coins from hidden vault when they are suposed to be arrested) but a lot of yelling, a battle remains (cause I asume any kind of battle leaves at least some marks) and "dead and missing" magical guardian rug are no problem

Meh this campaign is kind of shitty. The characters are the problem. Liam trying to be serious and one or two others but there are too many comedic characters and too many non humans. The Eastern European ditzy blonde thing wears thin fast. The goblin girl is also a comedy schtick Half orc walrock played by the meat head with a southern accent and the monk channeling Kate Mckinnon in the UFO abducted skit. Maybe keep this campaign to under 50 episodes. Then start another after they get the silliness out of their system. This is a normal problem after a long running deeply role played game. But it's not much fun to watch. So have them get it out of their systems and by the time the baby is old enough to be babysat or at least able to be left in the other room while they play, and then start a new game with much better and well thought out characters and not Abbot and Costello routine characters.

I'm just gonna put this here so that when I get further in this series I can just look back at my thought. Suspicious that the High Rictor returned home because of a "forgotten gift" LITERALLY just as shit went down at the gala, almost like it was planned. Looking forward to watching the next one to see if the law master survived what appears to have been an attempt on her life. Getting really curious if that letter beau stole towards the beginning is ACTUAL not forged evidence of communication between the gentleman and a third-party attempting to poison the law master.

Sam is an absolute genius. His dedication to being paralyzed is godly.
Sam Smith (24 days ago)
The gem that he used to splode stuff reminded me of a class I'm making, the Gemcaster, who enchants gems with different 1-time effects... but are semi-randomly decided, so if you were a gemcaster, you could say "I enchant this ruby with an Aggressive enchantment"... The DM would roll on tables, and you would get a random thing like "When you use the gem, every creature with 30 feet of you gets +2 to attack rolls", or something like "When you throw this gem at a target, the 'Fireball' spell is created, with the Gem as the center". (Its still a work in progress)
Nathaniel Ranney (7 days ago)
Sam Smith Maybe have it be something only the DM knows until used, until higher levels ("at such and such level you know what effect is applied to the gem"). Don't forget the archetypes. Or even better, use it as a subclass for UA Arcanist right next to Alchemist, and Gunsmith...like carving a rune into a gem, and the value of the gem increases the potency of the spell. I'm thinking of a watered down runescribe. Like Aggressive, debuff, buff, heal. Maybe even use the wild magic sorcerer table. Just throwing out ideas. Sorry. It's a cool concept.

In the campaign I am running I used a rug of smothering as a way to establish a new player joining the group. The party saved the Shadar-Kai from the rug and conveniently enough he is a ranger that hunts the undead. And the group had killed over 40 undead creatures at that point. For the record, the party was level 5 and I used mobs of low CR undead that were being given orders so the party would be flanked with no real way out.

I'm starting to think that the mighty nein might be walking into a trap... The motivations of the people who hired them are questionable. Ulog's wife was swept up during a robbery where she was an alleged bystander... Says he, a self confessed thief with a checkered past and an unverified present. As for the other two, they lost their practice in favour of the younger Suton, who as far as we can tell us doing his job and treating also patients of low station, so might not be such a bad guy. What if they deserved to lose their practice because they committed a crime or were bad physicians? There are few confirmations that there is any sort of oppression going on, and that confirmation might well be biased. As for the shady bureaucrat, maybe she's an arsehole, but a honest arsehole? What if the team is being set up to take the fall for what is ultimately a personal vendetta? Is ulog there to kill someone and blame them for it? I have managed to be spoiler free so far, so please don't ruin the game for me, but is seems not so farfetched a theory, doesn't it?
