>What is Critical Role and where can I watch it?
http://geekandsundry.com/shows/critical-role/

This is it, boys. Vecna's been beaten (even though the fight was a complete disaster) and we've reached the final episode of this campaign. Loose ends will be tied up, stories will be resolved, and we'll bid Vox Machina farewell.

How do you feel? Stoked? Sad? Still disappointed about the Vecna fight? Will the Raven Queen give Vax a "last day on Earth" or will he disappear completely?

Share your thoughts, your rage, and remember that it's okay to bash Keyleth here.
>>
I'm actually feeling relieved about the campaign ending. Really hoping for a more interesting PC lineup for the next one.
And I would bet my favorite d20 that Vax will get exactly the "last day on Earth" kind of deal today.

You and me both, brother.
>>
What episode was it on when you first found it?

I jumped on at 12 I think
>>
>>55839301
Oh, man. Early to mid 80's, I think? I started watching in late Feb and it took about 3 months to catch up to the live shows. The first episode that I saw live was 98 or 99.
>>
>>55839301
I'm only on 50 some but I kinda skipped ahead and watched live since 110. I get sad when other people are sad and they will clearly be sad.

Also if you haven't yet, watch their interviews on DnDBeyond
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9FM8VjWc7M (Sam)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-AS6C5vBhM (Liam)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRWM-mfPCTU (Taliesin)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJFYNZugksU (Marisha)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdNUHfX_Dko (Matt)

Marisha seems pretty down to earth and eloquent and it gives me the slightest bit of hope Keyleth is just a shitty fit for her
>>
>>55839301
I'd heard about the show from a friend of mine back when they were just starting out (like episode 5 early) but wanted to wait a bit as my interest in tabletop gaming at the time was waning.

Picked it up fully around the end of the Briarwood arc by binge-watching all the episodes up to the most recent one (right before they go into the tunnels beneath Whitestone) and they had their final fight at the top of the ziggurat.

Been watching ever since.

I'm really hoping that the next campaign has everyone playing a different archetype/style than what they've currently played. One of the interviews that the D&D Beyond people did with the cast of CR was with Taliesin, and he said in it that he's already got a character in mind that, "is almost going to be the complete opposite of Percy, but still let me be a smarmy jackass," which makes me think he's going to be a Archfey Warlock in service to Artagen, assuming that's approved by Matt.
>>
>>55839301
Somewhere around ep.48, April last year. The first one I saw live was their second Battle Royale.
>>
>>55839463
She said previously (either at one of the panels or on a Talks episode) that Keyleth's personality was meant to be almost the complete opposite of hers, because this was only going to be a one-shot, why make Keyleth into a character I actually want to play for 4-5 years?

But then we saw how that turned out. She has done one-shots with other players and played other stuff. Probably the most notable one was her being a Dwarf Bard during the Tomb of Annihilation event stuff that WotC threw a few months ago and she was actually not terrible at it.
>>
>>55839463
Yeah, I was surprised with how likeable she was out of character, in that interview. Here's hoping she won't be such a terrible fuckup in the new campaign
>>
Bets for tonight:
>Everyone will cry at least once
>Matt will break down crying mid exposition at some point
>At least an hour for Vax's goodbye between Vex/Keyleth/Everyone else
>Keyleth will get very VERY close to rolling initiative against The Raven Queen
OR
>If Marisha's hint from the Talks Machina from last week (I think) Keyleth may end up throwing away everything and joining Vax in the afterlife (She hinted that Keyleth is a jaded fuck now)
>Someone will meet the younger version of their next character
>Percy will get a bad ending by choice
>Scanlan and Pike end up together briefly
>Vex and Grog go off on other adventures alone
>>
>>55839463
I don't like Keyleth sometimes and I'm not even a guy, that stereotyping in the toxic fanbase has to stop.

Marisha seems fine but she's not tactical minded and not very good. She's visibly surprised in some instances when she either fucks up or nearly fucks up. Most important is that what she envisions in her mind isn't what is represented by the rules and she has a disconnect between that. When she played a goblin she did fine because she didn't expect to do much or to show off.

Considering Keyleth's actual stats the way Bluejay plays Arcturus on Roll20 Presents is a much closer to what you might expect from good rp. Unfortunately it seems Marisha has charisma and wisdom confused.


I always find the D&D Beyond interviewer such a shlurp slurp shluuuurp suck up. But it's entertaining to see designers on there admit that really they don't know what on earth they're doing, and just band-aiding concepts together.
>>
15 minutes.
>>
>>55839668
She seemed fine on everything I have ever seen her on except CR. I think here its a mix of:
>Being the leader
>Having a character she can't relate well too
>Playing Druid (Which is IMO one of the hardest classes to play well)
>Trying to do too much, being a bit showy
>Feeling the pressure from internet mouth-breathers who write her 500 word attacks whenever she fucks up
>A little too much whiskey

Hopefully the next campaign she makes something she will be happier with (Since she made Keyleth for a one shot)
>>
I don't even have to post it this time. She might confront the Raven Queen but to join Vax instead

Who knows
>>
>>55839770
That would probably be the best ending for her character, since Keyleth pretty much hates the world and REALLY hates the her father for not warning her how shit life is before sending her off on her Aramente
>>
>>55839770
Are you ready to see the cop-out answer, because Vecna is not really dead Vax will live on.
>>
>>55839668
>stereotyping in the toxic fanbase has to stop
>Marisha seems fine but she's not tactical minded
You're not fooling anyone, Marisha.

Kill yourself.

>Critical Role Ep115: "The Chapter Closes"
tfw a show you have been watching for 2.5 years ends. (I mean the story of Vox Machina, I know there is a new campaign)

>>55839819
Technically Vecna isn't dead, so if I were Matt and he tries it I'd give it to him if he RPs a very strong argument and then rolls a strong persuasion check.
>>
>>55839849
Laura is too pure for this world

I'm just trying to imagine playing a campaign for 4 years, almost every week, and then having it end.

Like I remember all my friends getting legitimately sad after a year long one we did. Fuck man it must be so hard
>>
>>55839758
Well Keyleth has legendary stats that she might as well be Mahatma Gandhi and Fredrick The Great rolled into one. Instead she plays like a village idiot most of the time. Her charisma isn't even that low.

Like I've already said I'm not into demonizing her critics. Writing 500 words or more means you actually put thought and feelings into your opinion rather than mindlessly love or hate something. There are some things that make for good topics of discussion and criticism that get shut down and turned into flamewars by toxic mods. She put the entire campaign in jeopardy more than once like with the Kraken, with the hell prison break, with the damaged trammel.

Face it Keyleth is a bit of a That Guy character.
>>
>>55839923
Taliesin's said that because of Vex's influences on Percy, it's possible that if he does take a downward turn she can pull him out of it or stop him before he goes too far.

Conversely, Laura's said that she can definitely understand the circumstances behind the tale of the Briarwoods and wonders if the Vex/Percy relationship would be able to resist a similar temptation given similar circumstances.
>>
i'm excited for the new campaign, I want to see some different things from the cast.
>>
>>55839962
If she didn't have the antlers on, Keyleth's Charisma is an 8.

The conversion from Pathfinder to 5e gave her a free +2 to Charisma. Back in Pathfinder she had a 6.
>>
>>55839962
>I will defend the right of people to go unchallenged who cannot let a single slip go unchallenged

Sounds a little GooberGatey lad, sure she's a tosser but let's not pretend there's anything healthy about how it got discussed.
>>
>>55839962
>The broken trammel

There was nothing wrong with that though. Everyone told her to do it, and Planetar has 24STR in 5e so she probably only had to roll =>6

>>55839980
>>55839923
At the same time, Percy is pretty fucked up for using Animus after experiencing first hand how horrible dying to it is (And how the demon almost devoured his soul)
>>
>New campaign starts around the New Year

>>
>>55840023
Marisha and Matt are getting married in like two weeks, and then the holidays so it makes sense

Plus One Shots are fun
>>
>>55839301
21 I think. I skipped the whole underground arc, the Whitestone arc drew me in it was awesome.
>>
>>55840016
>At the same time, Percy is pretty fucked up for using Animus after experiencing first hand how horrible dying to it is (And how the demon almost devoured his soul)
Wasn't that just because he was on Ripley's List?
That said, did they ever discuss how that probably happened to all the people he killed with the original List gun?
>>
Shit I might buy that artbook.

>>55840053
I'm not sure about the list, but you can assume whatever happened to Percy happened to them (if they were on the list), except the demon consumed them
>>
>>55840023
The Battle Royal will be wonderful at the very least
>>
>>55840023
Matt and Marisha are getting married in like 10 days, then going on a honeymoon, and then this gives Matt time for more campaign prep time.

This also lets them do a bunch of one-shots for the holiday season and a Critmas episode.
>>
Has anyone read the comic? Is it any good?
>>
I usually catch the video when it's posted on Mondays so I can skip the intro and the break, but it seems wrong to skip the live version of the final episode when I can watch.
I guess I'll watch tonight

>>
>>55839994
But they did switch and he charisma isn't a 6 or even a 4 which is often more like how she plays it.
>>55839999
A lot of the comments weren't bad actually, there's nothing goobergatey about it and if you read my other post you might know I'm opposed to that for obvious reasons. That again is part of the toxic community that shuts down discussion by inappropriately painting any rules discussion as necessarily evil.

Marisha cheated and Mercer played Vecna like a bitch, they were never going to lose.
>>
>liam already trying to get his brooding sad face going
>>
>>55839999
There are two other women on the cast and also other regular female guests. Marisha is the least openly feminist of the bunch. Ashley Johnson is openly feminist and Laura Bailey mentions feminist things too.

If it was the same thing then Marisha would be their favorite female player of the group. At the very least they would persecute the others for their open feminism.

She didn't make any concentration checks on her Shapechange and there's good reason to think she didn't just forget about it.

That went 100x better than I excepted. They actually pulled some real emotion and didn't drag it out.

That was a great end to his character and that entire narrative. Well done for them all honestly, no dragged out melodrama, no attempts to cheat or cheapen it, a fantastic rp moment via gameplay mechanics and a touching final gift for him.

Moments like that are why this show is special.

If you watch Matt's reaction to Scanlan using his 9th level spell for counterspell you could kind of tell that Sam has mentioned his plan. Sam is for sure a considerate player and wouldn't have sprung a narrative-changing wish on Matt without mentioning it.

Gilmore said he could get them to Emon so he probably took them there
>>
>>55841831
That is what the person is implying.

Personally, I think Gilmore would have just BAMFed them to Emon or Whitestone, which is so far away as to the point of being utterly removed from the primordial titan that they can be safe and start to prepare defenses there in case Vasselheim falls.
>>
>>55841769
Face it they replaced their group's dragonborn with Chad Tiamat.

He burned his bridges man. Behind the scenes shit happened that broke the camel's back, the cast hates his guts now.

Pretty sure the drugs were post-game.
In game, he was a min-maxing spotlight hog with a massive case of USI. He also fudged rolls.

While he could take them to Emon if Matt was actually an "epic" DM like people say he is then he would have used this. A bitter ending, with no winners in war. You took his love from him now he turns your friends and loved ones against you.
>>
>>55841873
He put out an explanation/apology video where he talked about his drug use (and cancer) in depth, he was using a little while before he left and the eventual building tensions and his inability to quit were what contributed the most to his leaving.

An epic DM writes his narrative for the players. There is no fucking way to justify a character who trusts these people to say he is going to Emon and then teleporting somewhere else.

>He was a sorcerer... what else can you do?
Not be disruptive to the flow of the game? He spent an entire episode shopping and abandoned a boss fight.
>Source on foll rudging?
Sorry I'm thinking of the Marisha thing. Orion's biggest mechanical problem was sorcerer points - you only have as many sorcerer points as you have levels in sorcerer, and the only way to get more is either long rest or burning spell slots. They were like level 11-14 during the fight with Kvarn in the ilithid temple, but he spent upwards of 20 points without using spell slots.
>>
>No more Liam at the table
I don't see the point of not letting him sit there

>>55841928
Literally both
>>
>>55841927
Yeah but he did all that while using hard drugs, dealing with HIV, cancer, death of family, and coming off playing the role of Elminster. What's Keyleth's excuse?
>>
Scanlan saves it with a joke
>>
>>55841945
He's likely just chilling in the same room, it makes for a better representation of the situation.
>>
>>55841928
>>55841945
He was feeling consistently under the weather, he went in for a checkup and they did bloodwork.
>you have cancer
>also HIV
>>
>>55841927
>>55841935
>>55841943
I'll have to go back and check. I don't think that's accurate. Yes, he was shopping high, that was dumb, but he did NOT abandon the boss fight. Check it, they all agreed he should go talk to the Illithid.
>>
>>55841929
No they talked about the forest and the group just now even mentioned Gilmore went to the forest. A good DM isn't a story teller that gives you good feels and everything you want. A good DM makes you feel and uses the game mechanics to do so.

Nope, Percy literally shielded him but his wisdom save was too low and the Raven Queen froze him in place. Vax told everyone to stop trying and said individual goodbyes before leaving, which is why Liam isn't at the table.
>>
>>55842191
He fudged rolls, ignored rules to powergame in a group of people focused on role playing, and argued with Matt constantly.

I liked him until he got the boot and I rewatched older episodes.

Matt and Marisha are getting married next week, then going on a honeymoon. Then they want time to decompress and give time to Matt to start doing more prep work.

They'll probably start doing some one-shots for the holiday season.
>>
>>55842184
They're a group with three primary casters and they function at the level of an all martial group. You would be expecting too much if you thought they could do anything.

Also started creeping on Marisha, but he's not hers and Matt's gimp like Tailesin so they didn't put up with it.

Being a Sage involves researching a creature ahead of time, not abusing outside knowledge of the game at any point and claiming you researched it at some point in your history.

Also he didn't fight for almost the whole fight because of his god damn powergaming.
>>
>>55842351
It was. Invoking it is another matter.

>>55842366
And then packed it in like an asshole while the DM was still expositioning, AND THEN got the true final hit

>>55842385
He spent the entire first phase outside the temple talking to Illithid

>>55842400
He didn't do that. His character just insisted not to fight it in his lair, and when he finally got convinced to make a check Matt told him he never knew about it

I'm just refuting the idea of what being a Sage means in regards to what that anon said.

He could or could not have had in-game knowledge, if it came to a roll.

He just borked that whole thing up.

Yeah the next week when they didn't remember clearly. If you actually watch the fight, he was just as active as the rest and the choice for him to go down to Illithid was a group decision.

>>55842416
See you need to go rewatch. Talking to the Illithid was the LAST thing he did. He had to spend two rounds out there because he didn't realise matt wasn't going to let him dash (for some reason).
>>
>>55842429
Vex is a markswoman and hangs back in every fight. She also still fought.
>>
>>55842400
The problem with rolls like that in a system like 5e is that you don't separate things properly. It's easy to know everything.
>>
>>55842429
>Plus, what's he supposed to do, not use out of character knowledge about lair actions? That's idiotic. The archer with better range than him stayed outside. Is that metagaming too?
>>
>>55842450
Please don't make me break this down for you sentence by sentence, I'm tired enough as it is. I'll just ask this: Based on the first sentence of that feature, how do you propose we find out if the PC does or doesn't know or recall a piece of information?

Matt didn't let him dash because he was literally trying to do a million things per turn every time.

Fucking Matt
>>
>>55842506
The rule used to be that certain projectile spell effects continue moving past the range. I assume that's too much tactical detail for 5e though.

There are flaws with Critical Role, undoubtedly, but it was a comfy campaign. Few campaigns ever get to really end, as most fizzle out, and few ever reach this level of fame. It's a game of friends, of of buddies, and while they're all actors... I dunno, there's just something pure about it.

Based upon what we saw?

8/10.

A little cliche at times, but carried by the strength of the good roleplay moments (ie., most of the ones that didn't involve Vax and/or Keyleth), creative player ideas, and combined with some very hype moments make for an entertaining story to watch.

8/10

Story wise it stayed pretty strong throughout, and in general the players were fun to watch. Keyleth/Vax and Percy were annoying at times, but they contributed enough to the story dynamic.

The only week that there probably won't be main cast content is Wedding week, but I know that Matt has said they wanted to play some board games, one-shots (Both 5e and other systems) during the break.

Essentially they need to detox themselves from their characters

That was physically revolting to listen to. Every time I think it can't get any worse, that i'm prepared for her cringeworthy nonsense, she somehow tightens the thumbscrews.

IT FUGGIN HABBENED.

GROG BEST MAN

Best possible canon.

Shame there was no Gilmore ending, even though it was just going to be a rich flamboyantly gay merchant some more.
>>
I think I started just before the Briarwood arc.
>>
>>55843838
Matt and Marisha will probably be gone for a while, rest will probably rotate through one shots ran by Liam, Sam and others.
>>
>>55839301
The episode where Grog was dueling a monk. 80-something? I've known of most of the cast members for many years though.
>>
>>55843850
Poor Matt
>>
This was fun. I hope to see you all again during the one shots and new campaign
>>
>>55843836
My guess is there won't be an episode with most/all of the cast for at least three weeks. I suspect there won't be one next week as everyone will be at the wedding, then the following two weeks will be a series of one-shots and two-shots run by various other people at the table and other DMs they have on call.

Basically most/all of November and December will be a lot of one and two-shots, answering fan questions, a Battle Royale amongst the entire cast, and probably ending the year with a "session 0" character creation one where we get a bit of backstory and revelation of what everyone's new character is going to be.
>>
This show was genuinely good and anyone disagreeing is a fucking contrarian.
>>
>>55843850
Yeah, which is fine. Liam is a pretty great DM and so is Satine Phoenix as long as you don't stare at her

I am REALLY hoping for a Pandemonium One-Shot now.
>>
>>55838909
>5 year campaign
How the shit do you even reroll at that point. Growing pains are going to be rough in a few months.
>>
>>55843871
>Satine Phoenix
Absolutely disgusting.
>>
>>55843871
> Satine Phoenix
How about no
>>
I'm going to assume Matt is forever DM, but what would your thoughts be on him playing in the next one?
What would he probably play? Do you think he could do well, or would he run into issues from not being always the one who knows all?
Example: Our groups former forever DM has issues where he assumes any incongruities are mistakes, and not intentional, even when its pointed out to him. He never explores or experiments, he just moves forward
>>
>>55843882
They have all played pretty low level characters in One-Shots recently, and plus there is something fun about low level adventures

Also thats why the break is so long, so that they are remove themselves from their characters
>>
I can't wait for the new campaign, lads.
>>
>>55843898

they should bring in perkins
>>
>>55843898
I doubt he will ever not be DM, but when he has played in the past he has been fine (I have only seen him in Liam's one shot and Sagas of Sundry though
>>
>>55843898
the main problem with matt playing is that there's no one who could replace him with this cast
i'm sure he'd be great at something, he's created tons of memorable npcs
>>
>>55843898
From the few games I watched him play he tends to go more support oriented and just goes with the flow of things
>>
>>55843898
>What would he probably play?
He's said his favorite class is Bard and his favorite race is Dwarf so probably that.
>>
>>55843912
He was quite good in the Paranoia one-shot too, where Ivan Van Norman was GMing.

>8/10
The only thing that I never liked was just rules based things as this a show that garnered a lot of traction and brought a lot of people into the game which I think is great (Heck this was the breaking point to get me into the game), but they are being introduced with some loose interpretations of the way the game is played on a technical aspect which can ruin some things. Everything else I constantly enjoyed I love, LOVE the emotion and genuine passion these people put into their characters and lives and wish I could see this one day in my home games.
>>
>>55843911
Perkins is best dm
>>
Wish list
>lvl 20 BR
>pandemonium one shot where everything is fucking crazy and psychedelic, Liam dm
>non fantasy one shot, shadowrun or some scifi setting
>Laura dm anything and makes lots of npc voices
>travis playing some leader/paladin character
>evil mini campaign
>>
we still have this super long talks machina q8a to look forward to at least
>>
>>55843780
I think it's a solid 6/10.

Here's my breakdown:
Campaign structure: 3/10
DM rulings: 7/10
Setting immersion: 7/10
NPC acting: 9/10
PC acting: 8/10
Rules used properly/interestingly: 3/10
Not Mary Sue rating: 5/10
Interesting RPG esoterica: 2/10
Group interaction: 8/10
>>
>>55843946
Perkins is just the Matt before Matt, so Aquisitions Inc. is just the Critical Role before Critical Role. Yes I'm implying Matt Mercer might likely become a salaried WotC lead designer and they're both a kind of shit.
>>
>>55843960
I will give my hand and eye for an evil campaign
>>
>>55844072
A bunch of shady fucks doing a hit on Arkhan? Sold
>>
>>55844082
Or Arkhan teaming up with a bunch of shady fucks and betraying them at the last second again, love it either way
>>
>>55844072
Wasn't Sam's oneshot basically evil-oriented?
>>
>>55844292
It was more Chaos-oriented, to be honest.
Liam's second one-shot ('Shrew Job', is it?) was definitely evil though
>>
>>55844292
Sam's one-shot was more Chaos-aligned with one very evil character in it because Liam wanted to play a cute, super evil girl.

Seriously; you worship a god whose sole desire and the ONLY thing he cares about is the utter annihilation of the universe and total entropy. Can't be much more evil than that.
>>
>>55844308
I think Liam's second one-shot was called, 'The Screw Job,' and it was what gave us as viewers the first example/taste of Travis playing a smart character, as he played an Assassin Rogue with 18 INT and just ran circles around everyone with his planning.

Too bad he couldn't roll for shit in that one shot.
>>
>>55841951
She sucks Matt's dick.
>>
But who was Pike originally in love with? I NEED TO KNOW
>>
>>55844801
That massive Grog dick obviously.
>>
>>55844817
Well, that'll make their roommate life a whole lot more awkward... Or a whole lot more sexy, but in a sorta weird way.
>>
>>55844801
Probably Percy, as Ashley hinted that Pike had a crush on someone in the party for a time.

Combined with the necklace that she gave to Percy and the advise she gave to Vex about not hesitating to chase after your feelings, is what makes me think that.

Can you just pop open jewtube on your device and listen to it?
