  1. yes i carefully checked that hahaha I think my one mistake was not to use the anti-magic field more - but RP wise i think I did ok getting the Beholder to act with consistency given the situation... after the two crits I was maybe too aggressive but hey you really annoyed him
  2. absolutely fine , as I say mistakes always happen in heat of combat - we forgot to apply advantage after guiding bolt as well. so my view is we leave it and Yaka was temporarily stunned to silence in aftermath letting you read scroll in peace.
  3. I'm not sure how I feel about re-rolling that disadvantage roll. In game mistakes are made, I know I make mistakes and you guys too - concentration checks lost etc etc - unless it is caught in the moment I am never sure about retconning it. EDIT - and you were probably were the safest to be honest (well would have been until only you left) as you kept failing to save so Beholder saw you as somebody it could happily just keep out of the game til he was ready.
  4. oh and another point of clarification - I was incorrect my message to @MDY earlier - the beholders main eye IS looking towards the main party at entrance altho he is near ceiling of the dome looking down (50ft high room). For my own sanity as we stopped mid encounter - Feneth is paralyzed and can repeat the save at end of his turn Artus is petrified and will turn to stone next turn if he does not save. Apart from that - everything is just fine.
  5. Obviously the party are not 100% aware of the abilities of a beholder all they know so far is casting spells is a bit hit and miss. they don't really know yet the anti-magic effects exactly so could not assume about sessil I don't think. On a technical point Yaka has not deactivated when nearby characters have tried to cast spells so whatever causes him to "be" is not affected the anti-magic that is currently in effect. Artus was/is top of the round - he got two hits in which caused the Beholder to use a legendary action to petrify him. That was the last thing we did before we finished.
  6. given Yaka's interest I'm not sure that Errick wouldn't embrace death now
  7. ok - regarding the snake - if you pop him out there is a good chance he will be killed outright if he attracts the ire of the beholder given his hp. So I won't use him. If @MDY is ok with this I might get sister input on each round decision as it might be a tricky one - I mean it might be easy if you all find a different way out of it
  8. Actually when I wrote this on the last page "It doesn't help that his more recent output is the smuggest "I was right ALLLLLLL along" bollocks that I have ever seen. He acts as if he was this lone crusader but that just isn't the case. There has been to and fro on these forums and all over on DLC, then microtransactions, then season passes and then loot boxes. A constant debate with strong voices on both sides. " I was thinking of that very video. Pointless video as far as I can see, makes one small point that simply adds to identical points already made and countless minutes of "I told you so". I used to enjoy watching his actual videogame reviews and related content... Even the asset swapping ones (until they got tedious and repetitive).
  9. I never really liked dlc and microtransactions but hey-ho at least you can choose to buy it or not and you know what you are getting. I have bought some dlc in past and allow my son to buy some for various minecraft maps etc. I see no value to loot boxes i.e. random stuff you pay for and would like to see the back of them - I haven't purchased any of that and won't. It also preys on kids and is gambling - the pressure and encouragement to get the "best stuff" will always work on a kid. F2P games I haven't really played much of - that sort of game isn't my "bag" anymore.
  10. Now got my own realm dilemma. My son wants to play minecraft with a friend from school online. Friend is on Switch - Son is on Xbox One I have a lapsed realm under my account. If I renew it can I set the realm to be accessed by both of them even if my son's friend is not on my friends list?
  11. If he was on sub-100k subscribers with no Patreon I might agree. However that feminist sjw skit thing he did I thought was funny and 3:51 long and got 350k views. I watch hobbyist channels with 100k subscribers that do shorter vids and longer ones - some use patreon, some don't. I maintain he doesn't need to produce such repetitive shit that is just his thing. I think he read somewhere once that repetition can be the secret to comedy - and he is right but not in the way he does it.
  12. It doesn't help that his more recent output is the smuggest "I was right ALLLLLLL along" bollocks that I have ever seen. He acts as if he was this lone crusader but that just isn't the case. There has been to and fro on these forums and all over on DLC, then microtransactions, then season passes and then loot boxes. A constant debate with strong voices on both sides. In terms of adapting to youtube algorithms I have more sympathy for smaller producers with a smaller pool to play to than someone with nearly a million subscribers and a very decent patreon income - I expect content producers like Sterling to ignore that sort of "pressure" as they have the audience and income to do so.
  13. no, I'll blame the content producer thanks. There are other content producers who dont do what he does - and that applies to many vlog type people in various hobby niches. Now sometimes those producers use Patreon so they aren't dependant on Youtube views and ads... and Sterling has a lucrative Patreon but still feels the need to bore everyone to death by making the same point on and on and on - and then obfuscating it with irrelevance.
  14. He just could have done that in far less than 22 mins. Most of the points are valid (excluding the subjective stuff he claims is objective - pfft) but he buries his main point in waffle (not objective waffle either!). However his repetitive delivery is just tedious. The reiteration of points over and over and over is just the worst way to make your point - you risk alienating your viewers who switch off either mentally or switch it off. Banging on about launch title quality is utterly stupid - yes make the microtransaction points but talking about the "objective" quality of launch titles is not relevant. FOr the first few months the only reason to own a PS4 was Resogun ffs But that is his thing I guess
