    Liam’s quiet, "And sometimes Y"

    After "I-O-U-N" caught me so off guard.

  2. Allacaya on August 26, 2022 at 2:51 am

    I love how they are going to have to fight the Tomb Takers in Aeor where the magic is absolutely messed up and magic users are at a total disadvantage. And their plan of recruiting allies is literally "let’s just ask all the wizards we know to help us!" (I’m aware that’s just the kind of people they know, but it is still hilarious to me.)

  3. JasperKazai on August 26, 2022 at 2:53 am

    You know bad shit’s about to go down when almost an entire episode consists of nothing but old characters from campaign 1 making an appearance to shower the party with magical items.

  4. sonan333 on August 26, 2022 at 2:54 am

    I know we already know this, but Marisha’s character must hate her dad, and with her set of skills, she must want to pop Pops.

  5. Gangrel Aussie on August 26, 2022 at 2:54 am

    God, Jester’s stats are such an argument against rolling. Completely unbalanced.
    Edit: Jesus, Beauregard too. Might as well be cheating.

  6. Gordon Ramsey on August 26, 2022 at 2:55 am

    They should have given it to Kiri that would have set that family up for life

  7. OK Then on August 26, 2022 at 2:55 am

    All this talk about the crazed philosophers of Aeor is giving me the insane image of fantasy Diogenes running around Aeor holding a plucked chicken screaming "BEHOLD!!!!!! A MAN!!!!!!!"

    I’ve had a moment like that as an adult where I suddenly realized that super messed up thing that happened when I was a kid was actually not okay and the only reason no one tried to help me was because no one knew about it. I’ve only ever told my wife, when i finally realized the truth behind a child’s memory. Her reaction made me afraid to mention it to anyone else, so I guess it dies with her, me, and "them".

  10. Pablo Bolognesi on August 26, 2022 at 2:58 am

    I love that Matt was subtly preparing them for a TPK. Yussa and Allura reaching out to others that could pick up the fight if they failed.

  11. Keldren Raze on August 26, 2022 at 2:58 am

    Now that Veth isn’t using that cool dagger, she finally has an awesome gift for her boy back home!

  12. Jesse Migchelbrink-Ota on August 26, 2022 at 3:00 am

    Where’s my Marisha-mute button so I can enjoy the dialogueeeeeeeeeee

    Like please just stop talking 😭

  13. Cobi Fennell on August 26, 2022 at 3:00 am

    I really wanted them to buckle and give Halas his body

  14. Bringer_of_Small_Miracles on August 26, 2022 at 3:00 am

    Because I’m struggling, does anyone know what feat they were talking about wherein one could get more than 3 attunements?

  15. Aidan Chilton on August 26, 2022 at 3:01 am

    It’s a wonder of worldbuilding that I’m confused and frightened of fake politics

  16. Shooting Star on August 26, 2022 at 3:03 am

    I don’t know if anyone else pointed this out, but when they were about to tell Alura what’s going on, Liam did the “Ba-dum” from Little Shop of Horrors to bypass it! I almost lost my shit!

  17. keyserv2 on August 26, 2022 at 3:04 am

    Stormlord, mothafuckas!

  18. Nixon VanJustice on August 26, 2022 at 3:06 am

    Listening to Sam’s Cyberpunk 1977 ad complaining about the price of gas, and here in 2022, has is $6.01 by my house. Lol

  19. Sarah Ross on August 26, 2022 at 3:07 am

    Silver-blonde haired wizard queen bends down to answer advice of a worried halfling carrying a cursed object: we love to see it. 2:01:49

  20. Balkhazzar Gaming on August 26, 2022 at 3:07 am

    They found the Holy Avenger with a massive roll back then. And now they got it back with another massive roll.

  21. Gangrel Aussie on August 26, 2022 at 3:07 am

    1:48:43 * I would have laughed so hard if after saying The Traveller’s name, Allura said, "Get out."

  22. Skelzore on August 26, 2022 at 3:08 am

    2:56:56 The people who released covid when someone says they don’t want to be forced to get vaccinated

  23. Trealos Gaming on August 26, 2022 at 3:11 am

    Calab’s comment about the staff was hilarious. In his mind he was like a kid in the chocolate factory

    The in-game start date for the episode was the 28th of Brussendar 836. Sam’s flask says “Otis’s Tears” The back still has a curly black mustache on it and also the while mustache from Sam’s commercial. Fjord’s new level was in Warlock btw, so he’s now Lock 11 Pal 3.

    My little sister finally started watching campaign 2. I think it’ll be a while before she realizes I am who I am, but Nell if you ever read this, yes it’s me. Love you.

    Any moments I missed? Feel free to post them here. Is it Thursday yet?

  25. Toxn on August 26, 2022 at 3:17 am

    "Can I have the ring" hahaha the subtle undertones, hilarious.

  26. Gangrel Aussie on August 26, 2022 at 3:20 am

    Honestly, the Mighty Nein are pretty evil to have left Halas to just remain within that gem for all of eternity, possibly to grow insane with centuries. They should have either destroyed the gem and sent him on to whatever death had for him, or released him into life with whatever promises they could to not be a horror on the world.

  27. iKvetch on August 26, 2022 at 3:22 am

    For real…how the eff does the teleport fail thing work?! Did we not establish that it was fine to try and teleport things AWAY from Eisselcross, but that teleporting TOO there was quite dicey? That is what Essek said…so why did teleporting the threshold crest to the Cobalt Soul in Rexxentrum go wrong? M9 was using a 7th level Teleport to send an object to a known circle, AND they had an object from there. On the table, that is a 100 percent success…so what the actual eff is going on with the crest having gone somewhere out in the effing woods?!?!
    Is this just a massive eff up by Matt that wound up being the way things were because nobody noticed or spoke up? Or is this part of Matt getting things set up the way he wants them for the end of the campaign?

  28. nataroma on August 26, 2022 at 3:24 am

    I want y’all to know that my attempts to fully watch this episode have been interrupted so many times now and every single time it resets the video back to like half an hour and I never remember where I left off. The show is really doing an incredibly oddly specifically good job of living up to the episode title.

  29. mark van dijken on August 26, 2022 at 3:26 am

    Marisha is amazing this episode

  30. User FBF on August 26, 2022 at 3:28 am

    The M9 just keep jumping to places where its 12 oclock in the afternoon and insisting no time has passed while Lucian finishes his plans

  31. Cry Thunder on August 26, 2022 at 3:29 am

    The Cobalt Soul actuallly investigating Beau’s claims and taking her seriously hit me in a sorespot. In a good way, I mean.

    I’m not normally the type to cry at while watching media, but that got me.

    God I wish that’s how it actually worked.

  32. Grand Admiral Thrawn on August 26, 2022 at 3:29 am

    1:18:35 I don’t recall at any time there was a moment when Vox Mochina went into Allura’s tower post-stream. I know that there were a few times they went pre-stream. So, this might be the first time for audiences and listeners to be knowing the description within the tower where so much has happened.

    2:12:40 It was kinda hard to read that but I eventually did. Very clever.

    2:35:17 Yeah, I wasn’t expecting this either. When did she ask this of Dairon? Because I do not remember this conversation. Unless it was very touch-and-go interaction.

    3:00:35 So, rather than going out to look for the thing themselves, the group who doesn’t trust anyone easily trusts someone to search for a really big, really heavy magical artifact in the middle of the woods. I get that they wanted the Cobalt Soul to keep it in a safe place but I think having a search team of the CS roaming through the woods would be pretty conspicuous. Do they not think that they have the time to look for it themselves? I thought that was the plan? They try to get as many people on both sides to stop Lucien or help them in their attempt and then they go get the Stone, take it to the Cobalt Reserve, and that way no one else gets hurt. Then they head back up north and enter Aeor and try to find a way to prevent Lucien from returning the city.

    3:22:19 W-why? Why? Why did she have this? When did she get this? How long has she had this? 3:22:30 From Avantika? Like when she attacked them at sea?

  33. Wil Rodriguez on August 26, 2022 at 3:31 am

    Fjord: so we are killing your Father? No hesitation. The Might Nein takes care of its’ own.

  34. Christopher Thompson on August 26, 2022 at 3:32 am

    The amount of goblin energy in that room of possibly trying to stay the night in Emon and go to Gideon’s was powerful haha

  35. PhoenixDZK on August 26, 2022 at 3:33 am

    The Holy Avenger is the definition of paying it forward from C1

  36. SuziePenguin on August 26, 2022 at 3:35 am

    Omg Jester’s little school girl giggle to Yasha’s “Maybe your way is better.” Fucking DARK. love it

  37. Aly Patterson on August 26, 2022 at 3:35 am

    The warlidin only has +5 persuasion? Did NONE of them take proficiency in persuasion??

  38. Trevor The Jew on August 26, 2022 at 3:35 am

    2:54:23 talls face… priceless

  39. Aug on August 26, 2022 at 3:36 am

    The dialogues are so amazing in these episodes I can’t believe it

  40. Wolfox on August 26, 2022 at 3:36 am

    Sam drinks Otis’ Tears, YES

  41. Justin Lindsay on August 26, 2022 at 3:36 am

    "Do you want smaller ninjas?"

    Like gnomes? Gnome ninjas. Gnome-jas.

  42. Modredastal on August 26, 2022 at 3:39 am

    I find it hilarious that Halas, the mighty, ancient, and devious Archmage, might be stuck in that damn gem for eternity, random adventuring parties pretending to make a deal with him and just leaving him in a box.

  43. Twitch 57 on August 26, 2022 at 3:39 am

    I now know what my next date night will have.

  44. Margaret Gardner on August 26, 2022 at 3:39 am

    Sam isn’t wrong about Cleveland. It’s a little shitty. But Marisha is also right- we have good music 🤣
    Said as a lifelong native northeast Ohioan and current Cleveland citizen.

  45. Buddhaa on August 26, 2022 at 3:39 am

    The luxon is basically Buddhism lol

  46. David Burrola on August 26, 2022 at 3:42 am

    "Do you want cat ninjas, or ninjas in place of cats. I can do it." Yes this is the most important question, and the answer is cat ninjas.

  47. Wolf Note on August 26, 2022 at 3:42 am

    Beau to Caleb:
    Daddsds can i use the house to throw a party?

  48. Skelzore on August 26, 2022 at 3:45 am

    56:53 No. I will not.

  49. ares on August 26, 2022 at 3:46 am

    I love how invested ashley is in beau’s story. it’s like a lil glimpse into the moments where yasha fell in love with her

  50. K.A.R.M. Productions on August 26, 2022 at 3:48 am

    1:39:53 This part makes me giggle way too much ^.^
    1:52:45 And the payoff here is wonderful ^.^
