The comment abt finding ur parents smut... in middle school I found one of my moms and it was about some girl who could see sex demons and they all wanted to kill her and w.e but the only two things I really remember about it is 1, it’s probably the reason I find devils sexy and 2, it took me like 3 read through to realize it’s abt sex
I’m watching this episode when a thunderstorm is happening outside. At around 13:06 Matt says there’s distant rolling and crackling of thunder, and JUST as he finishes saying it there’s a decently loud roll of thunder. Spoopy
I love that now Travis can play an intelligent person. When he came up with the plan to sacrifice the groups name and associate it with one of the leaders, it was brilliant. As much as I love Grog, he couldn't have come up with that.
the only one I trust is Caleb. because he doesn't trust anyone.
maybe jester. buutt.. I think that she's too unpredictable to say that she wont betray the party. and with the traveler showing himself to her, who knows what'll happen.
I think that Nott could have faked her whole backstory (sams poker face is solid) and I don't think that anyone insight checked her.
she may care for Caleb because of his ability to help her. and that would be all. but, that would mean a level of loyalty, at least until he has helped her. which would mean that she won't turn on the party until that happens.
Fjord would seem the most solid, except for my meta knowledge of warlocks. Entities like that tend to contact beings that they can manipulate in some way. so it may not actually be fjords will to turn when he does.
in game, I would say he's probably just about the unspoken leader of the group. next to molly
Beau Is definitely too honest about her rebellious side. I think she wouldn't turn on the party. because she's sort of taken this little group to be the only people she trusts, which is why I think she seems to but heads with Caleb who doesn't trust anyone yet.
Yasha is obviously the only one we can trust in the end though.
nott failed a save against a charmspell
while it would be theoretical possible that it was a lie it has to be unlikely, since matt defined the condition as if the other person was perceived as a very good friend whom one should help and whos suggestions are regarded as coming from someone who has ones best interest at heart
So either notts backstory is so dark that she would lie to a very good friend or what she said is true to notts knowledge.
I love how ford keeps his options open. watching molly pray with his swords he might be able to role play multiclassing blood hunter, the solstrice academy letter could possible be wizardry. caleb teaching nott magic is a good idea and it works really well.
It's just how you talk about the break points around numbers. For $1200 You might say twelve hundred dollars. But once you get to ~$3000 you don't say thirty hundred dollars. You just say 3 thousand and change. Same with the gold here 15 silver is 1.5 gold so you could go either way. So if all the other amounts are in silver you talk silver and if the other amounts in the conversation are gold you talk gold.
Also I think in the distant past the money system was supposed to be similar to old English farthing/pence/shillings/pounds for copper/silver/gold/platnium in DnD. Although the base coin has always been the gold.
4 farthings = 1 pence
12 pence = 1 shilling
20 shillings= 1 pound
They really emphasized the self serving motives and risky business this episode, I both hate and love it. They were working so well and making obvious choices to how their characters were portrayed. It's nice to see they're getting into more depth of character, but it seems a bit weird by their previous corroboration.
Once again A HUMAN IS NOT GOING TO FIND A HALF ORC ATTRACTIVE BECAUSE HALF ORCS LOOK LIKE BEASTS. THIS WOULD BE BEASTIALITY. Jester IS NOT SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO AN ANIMAL. Differing SPECIES in DnD are not similar to different RACES in humans. They need to stop viewing each other as humans and understanding how their CHARACTERS would view each others' species.

I assume you mean humanoids and not hominids, cause their are still other hominids arround on the planet (Hominids = great apes , Humanoids usually refers to human like creatures and is technically speaking not a term in biology, the Genus Homo is a subgroup of species within the Familiy of the hominids )
When it comes to "we fucked up". I'd disagree: Homo neanderthalensis shared europe with homo sapiens for about 5000 years which makes it unlikely that we made them go extinct. Usually humans are quicker with making species go extinct ( e.g. upon humans arriveing in Madagascar about 2500 years ago we killed of all the megafauna in about 500 years, killing of australias megafauna took us only 4000 years and humans werent coming there in numbers and the local megafauna was not able to produce tools and weapons which neanderthals could). Also we did interbreed with neanderthals. However biologists are argueing wether or not they even were a different species from humans at all or rather a subspecies.
similarly the Denisova hominins interbreed with Homo sapiens AND with Homo neanderthalensis wich is further evidence, that neither Denisovans nor Neanderthals were their own species but subspecies at best.
It is hard to make calls for other members of the genus homo cause we only have fossils but e.g. homo errectus died out before homo sapiens showed up.
i'd disagree very much
first of all: Jester is a tiefling thus from a family that is of mixed decent
It is canon in the dnd lore that when a tiefling and another race interbreed (thus interest is implyed) the result is a tiefling
why would a tiefling (horns, tails, and so on) not be attracted to a half-orc? by comparison a half orc looks more humanlike than jester herself
it is also canon that a subrace of the halflings (Stout ) is a result of interbreeding between dwarfs and halflings
you are correct that the crit role cast treats some of the attraction stuff strange (tiberius in campain 1 was interested in a human witch made no sense since dragonborns lay eggs
however to say it is impossible to feel kinship and or attraction to a member of a different race seems rather arbitrary to me: I was under the impression that half of furryfandom comes from the idea of beeing attracted to a somewhat humanlike member of a completly different species also: we dont really have a RL comparison since humans so far have not met another sentient species
Spoilers for this episode!
I literally got the chills from Nott’s scene with Fjord and Molly. Sam’s acting and voice...oh my gosh. That is the best CR scene ever in my opinion. Just his expressions alone were giving me the creeps...I have loved Nott since the beginning but she has just gone from a cute, comic character to maybe the most complex, dark and interesting for me in that scene alone. I cannot get over how well that scene was done. Seriously, bravo to this amazing cast.
“So he can save me” and “no. No you can’t” seriously floored me. The other players reactions (esp. Laura) are great too.
And the whole divided party with the secrets and not trusting each other, man it is so cool! It’s such a change of pace from what I’ve seen from the first campaign but I love it so much. I am so pumped right now. This show is awesome.
Gotta say, the acting and character knowledge from Liam at 1:29:00 is phenomenal. His face when he discusses the control of the fire. The other guys still don't know about his past but he still just subtly gives them hints...Fantastic!
I've been wondering for ages now, does Taliesin actually know how to read Tarot Cards (it does seem like the kind of thing he'd learn for shits and giggles) or is he just flipping the cards over and sprouting random BS in-character that fits with the game world?
I feel like it was an incredible dickmove (on the level of the character) to charm nott.
They are trying to get a message of trust across and basically force him to give away all his emotional problems... could have stopped when they realized it was about helping caleb but pressed on
