After saving against an effect like scrying you can't be scriyed on by the same person for 24 hours. A different person can still try.

That was a brilliant scry that Matt produced. Forcing the players to finally have to pick sides. What a wonderful predicament. Great storytelling!

This is the perfect group to find a bag of drugs. Last campaign was all the popular kids, this group is the class rejects.

My Leige is an address you would use when talking to your leige lord - the noble to whom you are obligated and the noble who is (at least in theory) also obligated to protect and provide for you. It does not specify rank but would never be used for a king because you would use other addresses specifically for a king which trump the use of Leige. If you addressed your king as "my liege" you would be insulting him even if he was technically also your liege lord.

Is Matt actually getting even better at this?

Xhorhaus vs Empire. If you were playing in this world, which side would fight for and why?

Me: I would try to get in nice with the Golden Chain and fight for the highest bidder. This is a story of two empires fighting each other, not Good vs Evil, so who cares which side win?

Ruling notes: Scrying reads "On a successful save, the target isn’t affected, and YOU can’t use this spell against it again for 24 hours.". While it is the DM's prerogative to do whatever they want, the ruling in the show seems like an accidental misreading rather than an intentional ruling.

The side effect is that if an amateur attempted the spell and borked it, a legion of elite mages would be unable to scry against that target for 24 hours. Alternatively, people who want to remain secret would simply hire a cleric with Resistance and Scrying and have them help them succeed a save against the spell once a day.
