Thank you so much I (stupidly) delayed this episode multiple days because of that planning session (it weirdly bored me even though I love planning heists)

What about the amazing quote that Caduceus pulled out of NOWHERE: 3:48:33
"Whipping the tide for daring to turn without leave."

I really want to know what level Yezah is - with that +2 on Nott's tinkering checks, he could be as low as 1st level, given some damn good rolls, but I'd like to think he'd be more like 3rd or 4th

I LOVE how Liam is always giving Matt more stuff to work with, story arcs to explore, world building to do. I love Liams story!

If they want the letter why dont they ask the gentleman for a favor? Like i doubt the dude care they are across the border. Send him a message and ask to get the letter and bring it to them at a certain checkpoint. Or bring it to jesters place and have someone teleport, get it and come back?

Im only an hour in and dont want to jinx it but tHIS IS THE MOST WHOLESOME EPISODE OH MY GOOSES I WANT A HOUSE IN XHORHAS

I don't know if the package from Calianna is from Mark Hulmes himself or by Matt but it makes me so happy that Jester and Calianna are pen pals 🥰

I just noticed that the music in the beginning where they're finding their rooms is Hearthstone music.
That's freaking awesome

When Cadeucus says he wants to build his own room... why am I imagining him just building a crow's nest?

And I don't mean the ship version.

Only Beau knows what Caleb did to his parents at this point, right? He said recently about murdering those closest to him and Jester didn't ask who so I'm getting confused.

6 days ago

I think in part of this episode Caleb might have forgotten exactly what Jester's mum's proffesion is- putting out a spy to look for 'suspicious human men' visiting the most famous lady of the night on the menagerie coast would generate the most absurd result of any spy work imaginable. 'well to report, i have the description of about 40 suspicious human men attempting to conceal their identity within the lavish chateau this month, but i suspect that's mostly because they didn't want their wives/mothers finding out they were there?' I mean worry about the Ruby's safety, but probably not about anyone seeing you enter (i'd imagine some of the richer clients make sure the entire place is triple warded against any scrying).

3:05:47 Travis decides he needs to be the Scanlan of this campaign and screw his way through adversity. EDIT: Shakaste is the MVP. Holy shiz.

1:00 So, new sponsor next week?

18:00 Now I know what teammates feel like when I spend ten minutes organizing my inventory.

22:00 Caduceus' new spell: Detect Vibes. Far out...

25:50 The DM was both ready and not ready for the M9's redecorating plans.

28:00 The M9, keeping a low profile, as usual...

33:00 The final battle better be atop that tree or I'll be disappointed. The M9 versus Chairna The Unvarnishable needs a fitting battleground.

35:00 Happy room and war room, right next to each other. Sounds nice.

39:00 Fjord likes redundancy. It is redundant.

41:00 Aww how nice of Jester to paint a mural for Yas- Oh, of course there would be dicks involved, why did I ever expect anything else?

46:00 Of course clerics get the spells that cost fuckloads of gold. It's realistic, I mean, real life clergy? Get large, showy temples built to honor guys who their own scriptures state to be against vanity. Now if clerics in real life could actually bring people back to life... Yeah. Fantasy clerics rock. Give them all your gold.

50:00 Put a lot of Daylight orbs in the middle of a neighbourhood where photosensitive elves live. Yeah, the Nein are really fitting in, you guys!

54:00 Usual "Polytheist" country. Huge temples for the main deity, shitty-ass shacks for all those other losers.

55:30 They said "we'll try to blend in" but they probably meant "we'll put this whole city in a blender."

1:14:00 Nott has the best cleanup plans.

1:18:00 Jester asks the really important question.

1:25:00 Fantasy Jacuzzi. At this point, Fantasy Sims 4.

1:27:00 Nott has a Husband of Alchemy+2 equipped.

1:30:00 Fluffernutter 3: Son of Fluffernutter.

1:40:00 Paying six thousand gold pieces to up the AC by probably 1 or 2, of the one party member belonging to a class that's supposed to soak up damage and has ways to make damage taken laughable. That's such a good investment. Hey M9, I have a bridge for sale, if you're interested...

1:43:00 Arcane suppositories. Perfect for your party's anal retentive mage.

1:45 Beau tries to smile. Her Friendly Slasher smile is like an automatic crit one for charisma rolls.

1:48:30 I was hoping for a Fireball. Not disappointed because giant cat claw.

1:50:00 Caleb gets a date.

1:51:30 Beau is going to be the best damn host she can be.

2:06:40 Bad perception roll, going to a break? I'm sure nothing bad will happen!

2:29:00 "Look, I'm not saying it's Craven Edge, but it's Craven Edge." What is that? This one is a longsword and Craven was a greatsword? Sorry, but crazy conspiracy theorist fanoids aren't swayed so easily by meager little things like facts.

2:31:00 "Don't micromanage my husband, he's fine." - Nott the... Veth.

2:33:00 Sprinkles has been dead for twenty episodes now, but nobody ever rolls perception to see if he is alive.

2:36:00 The saga of Sprinkle the Red will be sung by bards all across Exandria for generations to come.

2:37:00 "Here human, eat this teenager." - Travis. Uh, no thanks. They're stringy and way too salty.

2:39:00 "Let's focus on the war, not the room." And here I wish real-life warmongering dickheads focused fully on the room instead of the war. Stop forcing your children to train as brainwashed murderers and start training them to be human.

2:51:00 Shakaste is the babysitter they need, not the hero they deserve.

2:52:30 Tell me they were expecting Laura to jump at the chance when they mentioned back entrances. They would know she would.

Who needs Game of Thrones anymore, the amount of political intrigue in this campaign is easily filling that void.

Wait... if you can scry on people simply by knowing their name or what they look like, why is it so hard for the Cerberus Assembly to find Caleb/Brenn?

Beau hiding her face literally does nothing because everybody can clearly see her tan arms and they're the only humans in basically the entire nation
