    I’m Commander Shepard and this is my favorite series on the Citadel

  2. Neolexious Neolexian on July 11, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    17:50 …Does Jane have a computer monitor *above* her? Evil lab with dozens of monitors confirmed?

  3. bleukreuz on July 11, 2022 at 11:51 pm

    I love that merilwen is finally using her druid spells preparation, spell save dc, and wildshape properly 😭

    But someone should still tell them about the retroactive con modifier change bonus though… They’re missing out on hp!

    Also please tell Egbert that paladin also have access to all the paladin spell list and that he just need to prepare it like Merilwen 😬

  4. Emma Byrne on July 11, 2022 at 11:53 pm

    I’ve always interpreted the panache ability against a hostile creature as your character being so annoying that you provoke them into attacking you- which feels appropriate for Corazon

  5. Hayden Heffernan on July 11, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    Please start next season the same way, if the Oxventurers leveled again!

  6. Beau Carter on July 11, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    Thanks for the great shows. I’m so happy to be a part of your family.

  7. Prince Black Elf on July 11, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    I am glad that Ellen figured out that she was sort of restricting herself in both her wildshape and her spellcasting. Clerics and Druids have access to ALL spells in their respective classes spell lists they just have to pick which ones they want to do that day. It makes her far more versatile

  8. Ranskalaine on July 11, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    Awesome to see the Oxventurers get a little bit more seriously into the rules. The mellow vibe has been nice but when dice are rolled maybe 3 times a session, it’s a little underutilizing the system πŸ˜› failure creates good stories too!

  9. Lexi on July 11, 2022 at 11:57 pm

    Is it just me, or does Egbert seem to have much lower overall stats than everyone else?

  10. Maddi Nar on July 11, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    Luckily spell components that don’t have a cost are usually replaced with a focus. So youdon’t actually need to look at the free spell components unless you want to. πŸ˜‰

  11. A D on July 11, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    I thought panache just makes it so everyone wants to kill the user more than everyone else, unless they’re insightful and see through the provoking.

  12. WeNeedALadder on July 11, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    So on the topic of assuming they just have the spell components, Prudence needs a vial of blood from a humanoid killed in the last 24 hours to cast Summon Greater Demon.

    So basically, at any given time, Prudence has very recently killed a humanoid, which isn’t surprising but it ups her offscreen body count quite a bit.

  13. TheKingOfRooks on July 11, 2022 at 11:59 pm

    Now I’m just picturing Prudence with a big gaara’s sand style container of blood strapped to her back

  14. Harrison Hess on July 11, 2022 at 11:59 pm


    Why do I foresee this as 100000000% being a thing that happens?

  15. Bob, Squirrel King on July 11, 2022 at 11:59 pm

    A +0 modifier means just average, so the extremely unwise things that we frequently see Dob and Prudence do (with +1 modifiers) doesn’t make that much sense, until you think about the NPCs we tend to see, and realize that "average" wisdom in G’eth is… not great.

  16. LittleMissPsych on July 12, 2022 at 12:01 am

    Bless Johnny trying to nicely explain that they’ve been playing DND for beginners for too long and he’s got to actually stick to some of the rules before they actually break the game irrevocably!

  17. Stuempfeli on July 12, 2022 at 12:03 am

    Well am binging all your adventures, since I DM and why not watch others. SOOO all the Time I am a bit annoyed by the non playing by rules at all, so this is a step into the right direction. In all theses Adventures no rests whatsover….Do not get me wrong, at the live shows its fine and dandy, but when you do a strem or youtube vid, just make it right, take the half an hour or hour to play a bit better. MAkeing the encouners not last 2 hours as mine always tend to end up, is fine its just YOutube entertainment, but than let your npc’s hit harder.
    All in all just a fine course correction, and I will enjoy now the next hours of the newest adventure

  18. Zombiesfromjupiter on July 12, 2022 at 12:05 am

    "what is corazon the ballena without grease" indeed.

  20. mooglemania on July 12, 2022 at 12:09 am

    Ellen just took the limiter off of Merilwen, I CANNOT wait to see where this goes from here.

  21. eburel506 on July 12, 2022 at 12:13 am

    I just realized Elean is wearing the 60 skeletons shirt.

  22. Flore9999 on July 12, 2022 at 12:13 am

    Does anyone know what Prudence’s theme is called? It was in High Moon as well during the final fight, and I bloody love it.

  23. razgriz821 on July 12, 2022 at 12:14 am

    hope luke stops betraying corazon just for the npcs. such a dick move.

  24. Adam Henry on July 12, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Johnny should use a monster that targets characters with high wisdom so Egbert has the advantage

  25. Chris D on July 12, 2022 at 12:17 am

    I have CC on and half the time the say "Merilwen", it reads "marijuana".

  26. Emma Byrne on July 12, 2022 at 12:18 am

    I will say Mike’s refusal to improve Egbert’s wisdom is a pretty common choice, just in terms of character it’s often more interesting for a character to be varying levels of rubbish at something

  27. Neolexious Neolexian on July 12, 2022 at 12:20 am

    Head canon: Prudence is secretly a cleric. Eldritch Blast is actually just a cleverly disguised crossbow.

  28. Mr. Hathaway on July 12, 2022 at 12:21 am

    Egbert and Merilwen are polar opposites, Egbert can’t see nothin’ and Merilwen sees ALL!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  29. Damian Long on July 12, 2022 at 12:23 am

    Why wasn’t this the groinpocylpse

  30. CatsArtist on July 12, 2022 at 12:23 am

    @outsidexbox – Johnny, please also display each of their ability scores during Level-up!

  31. Keaton Belliston on July 12, 2022 at 12:23 am

    Egbert, the Careless Himbo.

  32. Brian Hutcherson on July 12, 2022 at 12:23 am

    I can see it now Ellen changes into an owlbear

  33. Tim Phillips on July 12, 2022 at 12:24 am

    Months after this goes up I realize that Corazon could be retconned as a lvl 7 swashbuckler and lvl 1 wizard, since all the arcane trickster spells are from the wizard spell list. Still a lvl 8 character just a level behind on the rogue track.

  34. Kyle Watson on July 12, 2022 at 12:26 am

    An item Corazon finds distasteful… A single copper coin

  35. John Beam on July 12, 2022 at 12:27 am

    Permanent Eschew Materials – yes please!

  36. kimbito kento on July 12, 2022 at 12:27 am

    I remember my "Training wheels are off." speech from my DM.

  37. Ginger Gamer on July 12, 2022 at 12:31 am

    So here for the sudden Chauncey voice

  38. Kuit the Geek on July 12, 2022 at 12:34 am

    Did Andy forget to add his additional 7 points from his constitution increase? You should get +1 per level extra when you bump your constitution score, and that would be +7 since he already added the new score on when he rolled for his level 8 hit points.

  39. Archer8492 on July 12, 2022 at 12:35 am

    ‘What do you think all those bits are on a Beholder?’

    Jane and Ellen, the only women present: ‘Oooohhhh nooooo…’

  40. M. H. on July 12, 2022 at 12:36 am

    What about the extra spell that Prudence got at the end of CRAWL ME MAYBE?

  41. Quinn Grey on July 12, 2022 at 12:36 am

    Egbert is a himbo and we love him for it.

  42. The A5ylum on July 12, 2022 at 12:37 am

    So this game is called Merrell twins dick is bigger yours ok lol

  43. St 25 on July 12, 2022 at 12:37 am

    Ellen: Merilwen’s spellcaster dc is actually 17 because you upped your WIS modifier to +5
    Everyone: remember if you upped your constitution you retroactively add that +1 for each level you’ve gained

  44. Kuit the Geek on July 12, 2022 at 12:39 am

    Luke: I just don’t have that many D8’s
    Andy: Who does?
    Me *currently* with 17 full sets of dice: ….Uh….

  45. AlistairVT on July 12, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Rewatching this and I realize, Johnny could make like an adventure wherein it’s basically some sort of shopping episode wherein the oxventures have to go through some dungeon with traps and stuff just so the magic users can stock up on spell components.

  46. Casey Baker on July 12, 2022 at 12:41 am

    Hearing them all shocked at Eldritch Spear having a range of 300 is so funny to me as a Warlock main who knows it can still be upgraded *much* further in range to the point where you almost literally do need a spotter like an actual sniper

  47. JohnFromOttawa on July 12, 2022 at 12:41 am

    Was mentioned a few times in the video that it wouldn’t be long until they leveled again. Did they and was there a video of it?

  48. patrickhasachannel on July 12, 2022 at 12:42 am

    Corazon es mi Corazon <3

  49. K C on July 12, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Dramatic reveal that Ellen will now be playing her class as written, completely changing her character.

  50. Lexi on July 12, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Wait so is Banish her non class 2nd level spell?
