I haven't finished it, because they're taking this week off and I wanted to slow-roll it.

They're usually good with the cliffhangers.

I listened to all  of it.  I drive about 16 hours a week during work and listen to it during that time.

It was chaotic. Multiple times 1 roll would have been death and possibly tpk.

That was just the perfect example of bad dice rolls really fucking them all over.

But, the opponents also all had some pretty high resistance rolls.

Unfortunately, Jester neglected one of the most important spells for controlling the scenario, and that would've been Banishment. As a Cleric, attempting to Banish the LH would've been probably a priority, while a Silence or stun attack, followed by non-lethal hits against the Devil, would've been perfect for grabbing the unconscious Devil and gtfo'ing until the LH re-popped.

It was super frustrating and nerve-wracking to watch, but last hour or so made it worthwhile. Clutch rolls and really great roleplay.

This is also a far more satisfying and engaging send-off for Yasha while Ashley's out of town than if she had just disappeared again. It's much like the aftermath of the Iron Shepherds kidnapping.

Incidentally I still miss Lorenzo. Probably my favorite NPC of the campaign. These new guys are OK villains but don't have the same kind of charisma or presence that Lorenzo did.

Agreed. The best villains are the ones who you can almost relate to and/or root for.

Yes, though I admit that I'm not the one who came up with Gigglefist.

The full group is great, and I can't wait for Ash-o-Lee to really be able to put her focus in to her characters. Looking at Pike, she's capable of a lot more than she's been able to do with Yasha.

So. Agreed.

I wanted to get into campaign 1 after the sound quality improved -- i think I heard they "figured it out" starting episode 24..

was there a handy massive recap that goes from ep 1 to 23 in campaign 1?

It may be better to start on the Briarwood arc anyways, that's when they really found their rhythm. I'm sure you can find recaps and stuff for campaign one somewhere, but I don't know if there is anything 'official'.

Personally, I didn't hate the sound issues enough to not watch them, and I liked the Kvarn arc.

You guys are nerds, and when Grog sang for Scanlan, it made me cry.
Where have you buried the body, MeTekillot?
