    Hey, I hope you don’t mind if I signal boost TablePop over on the Dorkly channel. It is an insanely funny show of one-shots based on pop culture properties. I’m not affiliated with them, it’s just made me cry laughing recently, so I thought I should give them a shout out.
    Any moments I missed? Feel free to post them here. Is it Thursday yet?

      Not gonna lie, I thought "Matt drops the map" meant he literally dropped it, I was quite mistaken

        I dont like marisha playing caleb because she made some stupid choices with the things that he could do

          I'm about 80 percent or more through this episode. I must say it went by slowly for some reason. My favorite part was Caduceus' speech. I really hope Liam makes it back for the next episode or the next one might go slowly as well.

                  Man, comments below CritRole videos so often exaggerate things.

                  Commenter: "Matt gets way too aggressive with keeping the rules sometimes!"

                  Matt: says one line to Sam about deciding not to do something because of a bad roll is not allowed, while smiling/laughing the whole time. Settled in 5 seconds, they moved on.

                  I don't get people.

                      The episode started and my first thought was.. "What the heck is Matt wearing? Looks like something Weird Al would wear.." Then I read what was on it.

                              Gotta say, really not a fan of how Matt handled the shuriken being thrown at the rope. He's right that there would've been no communication, no argument there, but Marisha only said that because she misunderstood out of character what was happening as Matt described it. Beau would've seen what was actually going on and, as such, would never have thrown the shuriken to begin with.

                              • Troodon Talon

                                They say that no plan ever survives first contact with the enemy. With Jester and Nott being the ones who come up with the plans, that's a good thing.

                                                                some point while i was sleeping, i unpaused the video and i heard matt misspell celestial twice and was woken up by the dnd song. i paused the video, went to the bathroom, and reflected on my crazy dream. some kind of military spy dream where i had to go down a road covered in train cars but they were locked and my test was to figure out how to progress. suddenly i have the eureka moment of subterranean travel, as i'm in a public restroom where my drill instructor just revealed that it is my duty to "figure out how to proceed." suddenly, like the hunger games, an announcer speaks over the PA system as i'm washing my hands and stumbles over the spelling of celestial twice. i take a moment to assess the situation as i return, and out of curiosity i backed up the video and sure enough that is the word and it was misspelled. the second time because the A L being blended in a misspoken L pronounced aL instead of eL. i had a laugh, because even in my dreams, i'm catching spelling errors. dream logic says the weird is normal and rationalizes, but apparently not with spelling.

                                                                            ...I like this plan.

They just keep going back and forth on how to get the dragon and then back up and then start over. Even a TPK would be better than this, JUST DO SOMETHING!

                                                                                  Since the "Common" language is whichever language the DM knows best, or the group knows best, and seeing how the DM is basically a god among gods in the DnD universe...

                                                                                  Wouldn't that mean that Celestial, the language of the gods, which is directly beneath the DM, be some form of offshoot of their native language?

                                                                                  What I'm getting at is: For an English group, is Celestial literally just Pig Latin?

Caleb makes a point of taking ten minutes to ritually cast the dome virtually every time, so being aware of this doesn't precisely require arcane (ha!) knowledge.
