The only thing Sam knows less about than this game is how cars work.

When I saw that game about raccoons racing my first thought was "Critical Role really needs to do a one-shot with this."

Honey Heist is one, definitely-- both the first and the second were great. First's on G&S, second's on CR's channel. I haven't got around to Liam's Quests, which folks seemed to like, and also Travis's oneshot where he DMed as Grog.

Grog's would be a good segue back into the campaign since it features VM.

Grog's actually takes place during the break. The Honey Heist episodes are amazing. Liam's Quest is good but trippy. Taliesin's vampire game is very dark humor but it takes place post-campaign 1 so I'd hold off on that.

There's only 2 Liam's Quest games. He has other one shots, but Liam's Quest specifically refers to the ones where the cast are playing as themselves.

The Screw Job is great and has Ashly Burch, but Sam's Bar Room Blitz also has her AND Mary Elizabeth McGlynn so I'd suggest both of those.

OK, speaking of Mary, can someone clear something up for me? Are she and Steve Blum married? Or at least an item?

Married I believe. They showed up on Talks together at one point, I think after the Screw Job actually.

FYI - for people who are into that sort of thing - the Vampire: The Masquerade four-shot(?) with Erika Ishii that they are currently running on Geek&Sundry is also really good.

And since they are clearly not above guest stars (ep 2 spoilers) Mark Meer out of loving nowhere!, I've not given up hope that Taliesin shows up.

Honey Heist and Grog's one shot have potentially end game spoilers so I would wait to watch those.

Feels like this series is going to become even more of a trainwreck because in addition to everyone being a Chaotic Stupid rear end in a top hat that can't take a hint from the GM, they now have a boat and thus they can do aimless pirate bullshit.

tbh if Beau had died and not Molly it would have been far better.

No it just means they can run away from yet more loving plot hooks and do dumb exploration poo poo.

Dumb poo poo is where we got most of the best moments of Grog, Tary, Pike, and Scanlan.

If this is your first post in this thread then you might want to reconsider if this show is really for you.

Also, ummmm, Matt gave them a pretty explicit plot hook that Travis is probably gonna want to follow: The island where the pirate who was supposed to get his orb lives.

Idk why people keep acting like Matt is somehow upset about the game taking radical turns he wasn't predicting. Matt's been pretty clear about the fact that he loves when the players do unexpected poo poo and 'ruin' all his plans because his plans continue in the background whether the players interact with them or not. Serious D&D and story development is fun, but wild and crazy D&D with shenanigans is the heart of the game.
