Critical Role: Campaign 2

Recommended Posts

Critical Role resumes tonight (just in case you didn't know) in a brand new campaign with all new characters.  I'll be watching it on Alpha, using my same personae.

We have no idea who will be who, or what they will be or where they will start, but the conjecture is strong.  

Once the show has aired, please use Spoiler tags for any content that needs it.  As the show is airing, feel free to discuss it!  There is a spoiler tag alert in the header and I'll make a big sign below.  No reason to use spoilers, but I can link to specific episodes if people need to skip something and come back to it.  Maybe we won't say too much about previous episodes that way.  Who knows... Otherwise, bring on the popcorn and lets enjoy a good show!!!

 

Be Ye Warned!  There Be Spoilers Below!

The Silhouettes have been Revealed...

Actually... now that I think about it, I'm probably going to be going Randomness on this thread, and there is a TAG for Spoilers.

Consider yourself warned.  If you want to know what episode we are talking about, we can preface that and do a link from the front page to cover that.

What is this?

 

Critical Roll is a video cast/podcast of live d&d games with prominent voice actor Matthew Mercer at the helm as the DM. He has other voice actors and/or famous actors as his party. He’s had Vin Diesel and Joe Mangiello in his games.

The first campaign went over 115 episodes... at about 3.5 hours per episode.  That's a lot of D&D, not counting the one-shots.  The hype is real... Alpha has been maintaining over 100 people in the chat getting ready for the event.  They are going to be streaming live on Twitch, YouTube (at least according to one moderator) and Alpha.  So... here's hoping we (the viewers) don't crash out the first episode of the new campaign.

Yes.  Podcasts go all the way back to when they started being public.  This doesn't go back to the beginning of their first campaign... that wasn't recorded at the time.  But you can start in with their arc in Craghammer and go beyond.  I listen to the podcast a lot when I am painting and hobbying.  Or even doing dull computer work during the day.  

 

And sorry, I meant to be on here during the event, but we ended up getting home just before it started... grabbed all the dogs and cats and brought them to the bed because my wife wanted to watch... and I wasn't able to be on my laptop and comment at the same time.  So, I just sat back and watched the first half unfold.  At the break, we bailed, though... because it has been a long week.  We'll finish it tonight (because I can rewatch on Project Alpha and not have to wait for next Thursday for the rebroadcast or podcast).  

 

As for #SilhoutteWatch, I got a couple right and a couple wrong.  Totally missed Sam's character (everything about Sam's character).  I did pick correctly for Taliessen Jaffe and Liam O'Brian... but... that was just the Silhouette.  Loved Laura's character!!! Intrigued on Ashley's character, but didn't get enough to figure out what she is.  Lots of people got Marisha's character... but I bet no one guessed the name.  Will have more thoughts after I watch the rest tonight...

I am seeing the Intro to the second campaign, but not the full episode.  I might be missing it, but it isn't initially coming up on my searches.  Last night they said they would be released the following Thursday for podcasts and videos.  It has been up on Project Alpha though... which is only fair, those that pay get the privilege.  I would imagine someone is watching for illegal uploads too...

Oh... yeah... now I can see that I can do that too... I wonder if it is a subscriber only thing.  Not sure.  (The benefit of having Amazon Prime and being able to throw a free Subscription at G&S).

Can you get past episodes as Podcasts?

 

 

Yes. They finally started releasing the episodes as podcasts back in June/July. They were releasing chunks at a time, and now they've finally caught up to the finale. I'm hoping that the new campaign will see weekly releases as new episodes air, or at least see releases on a 2-week delay.

 

I'd have been caught up if I hadn't had to use YouTube for so long. As is, I'm at least 50 episodes behind. That's a lot of hours to make up!

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Yet another design by Duncan Shadow, the God That Never Was, the Atropal!

      Probably my favorite critter that was added during the 3.X era (not counting Pathfinder since they've added everything from obscure local mythics to cryptids to memes over the years)

      Hello everyone!
      Last week, I posted pictures of one of the two D&D adventuring parties I am DMing (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81365-my-dnd-adventure-group/). These were minis I painted about a year ago. As there is a second party, I wanted to post some pictures of it as well.
       
      I painted the second batch of minis quite recently, I hope you like them. Here they are :
       
      "60071: Eccardian Drovenge" is Alrune, a Tiefling druid who was raised by Ents. Taking a step back from it, I think tha the blue wasn't the best choice, I should probably have gone for brown on those blue parts. I love the mini but with all those little details it was quite a challenge to paint :

       
      "03828: Crusader Champion (Sword and Shield)" is Guy Saint-Hubert, a human butter maker who decided to become a paladin of the goddess of death, justice and night to avenge his family :

       
      "03476: Kasham, Reptus Wizard" is Kigozaloph Jeanpatrine, a Silver Dragonborn necromancer. I was worried about the metallic paint to make his skin, but i'm happy with the result :

       
      "14567: BSG Hok Sergeant" is Miroslav Bulldosex (sigh), a Halfling fishmonger who decided to quit the civilisation and chose a barbarian life. All the pink marks on his skin are supposed to be scars but I didn't manage to make it obvious :

       
      "14553: Arthrand Nightblade, Wood Elf Sergeant" is Polodriell, an Elf ex-soldier. He lived in a jungle, that's why his arrows are made with parrot feathers. I couldn't manage to make his eyes look good because of the cloak  :

      I'm playing a Firbolg Druid in a campaign and couldn't find any mini to represent him.  So I came across this Longtooth Barbarian and decided to convert one. I removed the sword on the back for a backpack, and I gave him a Scimitar.

      This is really sweet and a great introduction to Dungeons and Dragons. I’m kind of astonished — and delighted — that the news site Vox put it up.
