Nott should get a small shawl/shemagh .. practice the _disguise self_ of a street urchin
.. twine/cord, chalk or other _phosphorescent_ means of marrking
.. i laughed at the very technical 'pokey poo'
.. I thought goblins had darkvision .. making the sewer the equivalent of dim light to 60 feet
.. funnel web + trap door spider? i am bad enough with normal ones .. an enlarged one?? heebie jeebies
That's so stupid for them to give the glove to Ford. Why give a mainly melee character a glove good for range. Caleb never gets close so it will always be more useful to him and he has no loot. I hate that they forced him to give the glove away.
ajani walker What? That's not what happened. *Caleb gave Fjord* the glove of blasting* as Caleb already has access to Scorching Ray. Caleb *later traded Mariner's Armor he couldn't use for the glove back* I don't recall them forcing Fjord to wear the glove.
Teneban The way Wizard spells work is this: Can trips can be cast automatically, but Spellbooks are the first part of casting a spell. It is the source of a wizard's power. Each spell book is unique to the wizard, and can only be read by that wizard (unless a wizard shares the book, or casts Read Magic). In order to prep spells they MUST STUDY AND PREPARE FROM THE BOOK to cast the spell. This also allows them to share advice and notes amongst their peers, and copy down scrolls or spells from other spellbooks. Caleb may have a brilliant memory, but the mind of a wizard cannot hold in all those spells at once.His keen mind allows him to memorize spells prepared, but Magic has limits.
He took money from the bodies in the sewer and stashed it (apparently) for himself. He wasn't exactly sneaky about it, so they all know he found stuff that he wasn't sharing even if they didn't know what or how much.
Just started the show and loving it so far, Matt Mercer is the best DM I've seen. My one critique is I feel like he pulls punches a bit, a few of the Nein rolled some 1's, I'm just used to getting punished for them and a few spiderlings thrown in would have made this encounter more challenging, as the most challenging encounters are the most exciting! Great show!
I know probably nobody cares at this point, but I don't know why everyone is making such a big deal about Taliesin and his "Meta gaming." with Molly and Caleb: you could make the argument that he is used to dealing with shady people, is already suspicious of Caleb and just assumed he was trying to horde some good stuff. They could obviously see him going through the bodies, and he just correctly assumed what was going on. As for Molly and Nott, Taliesin beat Sam's stealth check, and Taliesin said he assumed he was still in the room which Matt allowed, and seems legit to me so it was probably pretty obvious what Nott was up to, and just made a "guess" what she was looking for. Sure Matt, and everyone else could be rule Nazis and made him do perception checks for the first situation, and called him out on both but that would have just made things all awkward and mess up the story flow for some things that weren't that big of a deal. He already makes them do in my opinion a few too many checks for certain things.
Srsly.. Mollymauk should just get the Glove Fjord has right now. I mean.. Fjord can still cast Eldritch Blast for range and shit but Molly is (nearly) useless against anything which isn't in melee attack range. Let Molly scorch the enemies to ash!
Oh ok. So it was just me not knowing enough about d&d's world or american accent for that matter ;)
Anyway, thanks a lot, didn't think anyone would still care to reply under such an old (in youtube terms) video.
Thanks for replying, but i kinda thought so already. What i was really wondering was how/why did he learn it (was it just school or is there any special reason) and why he keeps bringing it up? I speak fluent italian but i never use any words outside of conversations with italians. Please note that i don't mind him doing so, it's just that it seems almost like a running or inside joke to me that i kinda missed, so i was wondering about it's origin.
Fun fact: Thieves Cant isn't an actual language so to speak. It represents a variety of phrases, typically in common but in any language, that outside observers will misinterpret or believe is normal speech. Essentially Thieves Cant is speaking in code. So as an example I am making up: Saying you are about to rob someone could be "My Uncle is in town", which if they want to join you being "Your aunt too?"
Man I kind of hate the term Cubic Feet. 8 cubic feet... Is it 8 1x1x1 foot blocks? Is it a 8x8x1 foot block? Or is it a 8x8x8 foot block? and ALL of these are perfectly acceptable interpretations of the term.
Interesting fact: The ability of people of lower station to just purchase expensive clothing and be indistinguishable from the upper class was actually a concern in certain places and times. So much so that in Shakespeare's time there were literally fashion police. It wasn't unusual for them to ban you from wearing certain fashion unless your caste was high enough.
So yes i know this is an old episode but i only listen to the podcast while at work when i can so im behind ok but i just had to stop working and bring up the video of that epic DnDBeyond Dance.... that is all thanks.........
ps jester rules
As regards the halfling, I'd of said "It doesn't matter why he's down here or who he works for. Thed owes us a favor, and it's best we don't ask questions so that we may have plausible deniability. At least, for now..."
It's frustrating how some of these guys just doesn't seem to play attention. Matt; in character; has repeatedly said that there were no bodies recovered, that there were no witnesses, meaning that no bodies recovered = no witness = no one would know what the monster would look like. GOD THIS IS GETTING ANNOYING
i feel like i'm watching a bunch of 6th graders with all the poorly thought out arguments and juvenile displays
so much "movie mindset" where insignificant characters feel completely comfortable making crass compliments to authority
and nothing can happen to me because i'm the most important character in the movie! i get to break all the rules!
ridiculous reasoning behind idle threats made against one another trying to prove how cool they are
mindless and ludicrous, just to be able to say something "cool"
ughhhh this campaign and these characters pale in comparison to the last campaign / season
i mean... they have fun and enjoy themselfs - its enterteiment. thats true its not heavy RP mindset as in first one but that doesnt mean its worse than it, different yes, but many people do enjoy it, including me if i may add. Keep in mind thats 10th episode so thats really just the beginning ;)
Ashley around two episodes in a row. All fifty-three planets must have aligned or something...
Jester's god is sounding less and less like the kind of imaginary friend that makes it to godhood, and more like just an imaginary friend, with each passing episode.
Patiently waiting "the Traveler told me to murder you all" crazy Jester.
Fjord summoning his frost armor in the sewers... I wasn't surprised it turned into frozen sewage armor, really.
I must also say... Took Matt ten episodes to go for the "my basement is full of rats" sidequest.
Ah ye olde rebellion. People following them are often blind to the fact the ones in power more often than not either came into power through previous rebellions, or are the result of a long line of rebels-made-leaders. One day mankind will realize the problem is not "the people on top" but the fact there is a "top." There is no government like no government, unfortunately...
