  1. Yeah, if you can gather some people I'd be up for it too
  2. All the talk in the other thread about starting up a new campaign has inspired me and I've joined a local d&d group on facebook and arranged to join a game in a few weeks. It's quite unlike me as generally I'm not very forward about doing things where I have to meet new people. I really enjoyed our short lived campaign that graham ran though and have had a hankering to play some more since then. I've just been putting it off, for not really any good reason at all. Mostly just the whole new people thing and me not being particularly outgoing. I'm trying to be better about that though, so have taken a first step.. Anyone have any (preferably positive) experiences to share of joining d&d groups where you knew nobody before? It's a 'west marches' style, so rather than an ongoing campaign it's all individual-ish episodes that tie into a wider story with in theory different mixes of people each session depending who's about and what people want to do. I figured actually for a first time, that's maybe a bad way to go. It's not a major commitment and if I decide it's not for me after a session and don't go back I'm not creating any sort of issue in someone campaign either. Not too sure what to play though. I'm leaning towards a gnome wizard, I figure wizard is basically useful no matter what and nobody is going to expect me to be the face of the group as a wizard. Also less spells to remember than a cleric or druid and given we might be a mix of levels I can hide at the back as a wizard and still be helpful where as if I was up front I might be a bit twitchier if I'm level 1 and the guy next to me is level 3.
  3. If you pickup a bedroll you can use that to heal the entire party after a fight. Clears all status effects as well I think.
  4. It's closer to how pathfinder handles mirror image, but they've been playing 5e for long enough that they should have coped with the swap over by now.. I've been sticking with campaign one for my morning commute. Up to episode 48, which has the awesome arrow effect! Genius! (29s in)
  5. My son and I have painted up the Stormcast Eternals. His is the one on the left, mine are the other two. I kind of want to go back and try and neaten it all up, but given it's the first miniatures I've painted in 20+ years I'm quite pleased! Both really enjoyed painting them together too, although feel like I need to some smaller brushes next time. Maybe even this time if I do decide to try and neaten them up.
  6. Yeah, I normally prefer podcast form too. Undeadwood is a lot more staged than a normal crit role episode though. I'd recommend watching the first 10 minutes and you'll know whether you want to sit through the rest or just listen when it's on a podcast. They've put plenty of effort in with costumes, set dressing and I'm guessing a bunch of cameras given how they cut between shots. Also given the setting there's plenty of disparaging looks and steely glares going on which won't translate to podcast so you'll miss them.
  7. Not yet, but it will be next Friday I think. Doing a one week delay. The twitch/YouTube video is really good though (if only for Matt's hair blowing in the wind).
  8. Did feel very short, 4 episodes isn’t going to last long. The outfits and atmosphere are fantastic though!
  9. In an effort to massively lower the skill on display I've gone and bought these: I need a knife and a primer too right? And a second brush as one of my kids wants to paint one too.
  10. I'd say episode 6... appreciate that's quite far into the season, but honestly I can't remember anything particularly memorable in the first 5 episodes.
  11. Just to say if anyone is considering it in the future, GrahamS is great as a DM. He's really engaging and enthusiastic, which really helps when you're new and it's all a little bit weird. Because let's be honest, it kind of is weird when you start playing and you don't really know what you're doing or how to act, or even what the other people are going to be like in the party. I don't know how the rest of the group felt to start with, but I'm fairly quiet and somewhat shy so was kind of nervous (which is ridiculous at my age) but it was blast. Big thank you to the rest of the party for playing too, you're all great and I really enjoyed our sessions. I still wish I was as cool as Clip palming a dagger and shanking that goblin in the cave though..
  12. Minor timing related spoiler if you want to skip some of the episode.
  13. So I may have been somewhat obsessively listening to campaign two over the last few months and I’m now caught up on the podcast (which makes me a week behind the show). It’s been really good though, driving to work, strolling round Leeds at lunchtime, going for a run, doing the housework. All prime critical role listening opportunities. I don’t know what to do now I’ve caught up though, do I start campaign 1 and listen to that which’ll easily fill my hours or do I listen to something similar but different? The only other thing I know that’d be similar is High Rollers and purely because the guy was on crit role. Any suggestions? I’ve listened to 1.5 episodes of campaign 1 and it’s not especially grabbing me right from the off in the same way.. googling suggests I may just need to give it time though?
  14. Because rllmuk told me to doubt it!
