    Critical Role - The new campaign

    I never caught the first campaign but I’m now up to about episode 30 of campaign. At times I think it’s glorious. The group get on brilliantly, they’re funny and entertaining. Love it. Other times they drive me nuts. Continually forget the effects from round to round (I..e having advantage due to flanking), cannot remember the dice for the attack they just used last round, failing to state they’re holding a ranged attack and are surprised that they never trigger, and Marisha’s constant okaying. Whats funny about that is how closely it resembles my own D&D experiences with friends (other than the okaying). We were the same. There’s a lot to think about and it gets tricky to remember it all. It annoyed me there in the same way. The other thing I found, and they do the same, is sometimes over thinking everything. I feel D&D (or any role playing) can be hard if the players won’t play along with the story to some extent. Too many questions down one track, heading off in what obviously is against the story’s flow, too much planning before a fight (and sometimes none). It’s not wrong on the players part but it can be frustrating in the way it sort of stalls things a little. I remover in one Call of Cuthulu pomade thing we played we had a player asking for medical records, constantly perusing it when the responses clearly indicated there was nothing there, as a premed it didn’t provide them and the DM was really prepared for it. It weighed the game down for no value. Mercer does an amazing job with them and handling it all. Incredible. Well, that was a bit rambling, tl;dr This drives me nuts at times but I love it and how it reflects so many of my own experiences playing (although their role play is much better than ours ever was).

    Aron is probably mine. 1219 seen. No shiny.

    Yeah, it got boosted sometime on Monday. I think 19 is the new max (not seen anyone report 20).

    Amazon Prime Video

    I rarely use Prime but have been watching a few things recently (Patriot and Homecoming off the back of the threads here, and The Purge). My god it’s terrible compared to a Netflix, which is by no means perfect (or even remotely as good as it could be). I hate the interface (at least on my TV app) but the really ugly thing is the ads between episodes. It’s like when you’re paying Sky for the privilege of watching their overprices sports channels and still have to put up with boat loads of ads. Given it’s all just ads for other stuff on their own service it also seems somewhat pointless. Just let me enjoy the show I’m watching seamlessly and maybe offer some you also might like options when I’m done.

    Ever been totally hooked on one game?

    I had ~140 days (3360 hours) played one single WoW character in the course of about 9/10 months during the 4th year of my degree. I did almost nothing but play it.
  6. Yep... Normal Bottle Cap once a day from fighting the fairy trainer on the pier where the S.S. Anne was. Gold bottle cap on the floor of the Game Corner. There are 6 loot points (use your partners waging tail to locate them initially but ther never move). They are randomly assigned. Save outside and loot them all. If you don’t get the gold cap then restart the game and try again, you can also get a normal bottle cap. I’ve normally got it within about 10 minutes or resets.
  7. You can use bottle caps to max out IVs for level 100 Pokémon. Normal caps max one IV, Gold caps do all 6. I think the guy to do it is in the daycare. There’s one normal and one gold bottle cap available daily (the later may require resetting as it’s random).

    Pokemon Go

    Marowak raid also counts for the cubone quest
  9. Yes. Think they're all the same level. Many are setup with good counters so they're super effective against you. Levelling Pokémon to 100 isn't actually hard post game though. Chaining chanseys in cerulean cave can be 10-90k XP a time!

    Pokemon Go

    I’d agree. “Use X berries to catch” Pokémon quests are generally just how many berries you use.
  11. Exactly. You have to encounter him to see as he's not shiny on the map or the precanned animation. You can skip the animation pre fight if you enable it in the settings. With the charm it's approx 1/1000. Approx 1/4000 without Imported one from Pokémon Go so I could hold off catching in game to do this
  12. Imported one from Pokemon Go so I could complete my dex and get the shiny charm (enhanced shiny rate) so I could hold off to try for this shiny one.
  13. So I've just got somewhat lucky... Took about 3 hours of resetting so not bad compared to the odds.
  14. You can fight the elite four again for about 40-50k a time. Also the gym trainers. There is also one daily nugget and big pearl.
