What's the deal with Scanlan leaving in campaign one? I never watched any of it, but what were the circumstances of him bailing for a while?

When Percy first meets Viktor, and Matt describes the room being covered in blackpowder, and Orion drops in a quick joke as Tiberius with "I walk in, 'fireball'" still makes me laugh.

I guess if you're a dick, it's easy to play an irritating self-important douche very well.


Ooooo, the whole set up around this is really good. Like, heartbreaking good. If anyone can give a synopsis and do it justice, well they're better than me. I recommend you just watch it.

... woof, that's like 400 hours, though. I'm not saying I WON'T, but... it's not very likely.

It's spoilery but you have to watch so much of campaign one for context that I'll go ahead and summarize it for you:

Well, dang. That's some good storytelling. It's good that they have enough faith in their characters and stories to do poo poo like that.

The little reference back to the last campaign was super cute.

Edit: I just went back and watched the key parts of the episode where Scanlan leaves and holy poo poo I donít think Iíve laughed as hard as I did at the reveal in a long time. Theyíre so ANGRY. Itís great watching them realize what they did.

Edit 2: I might go back and watch the whole campaign just for grog. Holy poo poo.

I think half the reaction to Nott was for Sam's voice, and the assumption that it was a similar situation to his voice during one of Liam's one-shots, where he did a similar kind of Slavic thing to what Laura does for Jester and belatedly realised he'd committed to it for 4 hours without thinking. Except he was committing to it for 2 years.

He's really settled into it, though. You can see him accustom to the voice as the weeks go by to the point where he can comfortably act in it.

Man, I went from not knowing heads or tails of this and just skimming over it when it came up in my youtube sub box to getting incredibly hype about it in no time. To think, if my dumb rear end had bothered to check it out two years ago, I could've watched it unfold live sooner. Ah well.

He'll get the production crew to update the overlay to have his name listed as "Emmy Award Winner Sam Riegel"

On a more serious note, didn't his sister win an Oscar this year too? Big year for the Riegels

Nominated, apparently, for editing I, Tonya. His other sister won a Daytime Emmy for her work on All My Children, too. They're goin' for the family EGOT.

Everything from the Taryon reveal onward is solid gold in that episode.

Samís performance of Taryon is especially impressive given that, IIRC, he revealed on a Talks Machina session that (due to a miscommunication with Matt) he didnít actually know/expect Taryon to show up until the next week. Heíd obviously built the character, but IIRC he hadnít named Doty yet, etc. Just got tossed into the deep end.

What Iím trying to say is that Emmy Award-winning Sam Riegel is the best.


It worked out way better this way, I think.

Granted, I'm still working through backlog, but I watched the reveal and the next episode, and I feel like having that added week break would've burnt a lot of the fun out of it, and they would've lost both the surprise and the energy of the turn.

So I bailed with like 10-20 minutes left. Please tell me wherever the hell Nott was going with this is not some clumsy attempt to be analogous to being transgender. Like, tell me it was resolved in a way that wasn't as weird and bad as it felt like it was gonna be.

I don't think it's going to be explicitly drawing that sort of parallel, but I think her end goal is probably to have Caleb learn True Polymorph and turn her permanently into a halfling.

I think Sam is good enough to not gently caress this up.

I understand their concern, or at least what I think their concern isó thereís a way you could play that character that would result in it being a very clunky and very gross ďIím just a halfling born in a goblinís bodyĒ. It could come off as flippant and even mocking of legit dysphoria.

The way I think itís going, itís more that sheís horrified by her pack and their actions and sympathetic with the kindness of the halfling man she was sent to surveil. She wants to dissociate herself completely with the goblins as best she can, up to and possibly including polymorphing into a halfling.

I just realised Sam's shirt says 'Missing' because he wasn't in Ep 20 of campaign 1.

The first episode he missed, he wore the green screen. Then I think he started skipping missed episodes in the shirt order, and if he no longer had the shirt he'd wear something appropriate-- an ERROR 404 one week. I'm guessing he no longer has whatever shirt he wore next on the show, hence the Missing.

Boy I got to episode 63 where they fight Sondur in the feywild and the video is broke as gently caress. Audio cuts out repeatedly throughout, and at the break the video turns into flashing blocks of green and purple for the rest of the video. Itís a shame.

Wow... I was 100% certain that Beau was going to bite it for good in that troll fight... and they established last episode that Jester doesnít have the diamond necessary to cast Revivify yet. At best, if they didnít get her killed by taking more damage (and therefore failed death saves), that troll was booking it with her unconscious body. Hulmes casting Levitate was incredibly clutch.

Imagine if Caleb burns ANOTHER person close to him to death. Holy poo poo.

I kinda feel bad about everyone else when it comes to Orion, because he was part of the original group when they were just friends playing D&D for fun. And then he let his drug problems and crazy override everything else until he got booted out, and now he's burned so many bridges I don't think most of the cast even talks to him any more.

I think it's worse than it ordinarily would be because the cast is extremely close friends that hang out all the time outside of Critical Role, and Orion used to be part of that. His leaving is a lot more personal than a guy simply getting fired from a TV show.

It's kinda amazing how the episodes after Orion leaves are so much... better. Lighter. Enjoyable.

Which is a definite plus.

I'm wondering when they'll shift over to using only their own channel- they say they're going to keep everything broadcasting the same for now, but I can only imagine that's the next step.

I'd imagine neither party wants to fully separate from the geek and sundry twitch; Critical Role puts up G&S's biggest numbers, and it'll be a bit of a process to get folks to switch over to the new channel.

I'm getting close to episode 85 in my viewing order. Even though I know what happens when they wake Scanlan up, and already watched his leaving scene and the Tary reveal, I'm still super excited to see it in its original context, along with the shakeup to the routine that comes with the new character.
