Re: Critical Role: D&D with Matt Mercer and crew
Thursday 9th April was the 5th edition of their campaign. This episode unfortunately does not have Scanlan as Sam Riegel was away. This episode did mark the intro for Ashley Johnson's character Pike, show casing her back story.

Critical Role Episode 5: The Trick about Falling

The embedded video player does have issues as there two overlays covering both the timeline and the controls. Although the video is playable, its not the best quality.

Highlights from this week are:

A toy replica of Castle Grayskull from He-Man is presented as it was kindly donated to Geek and Sundry.

No Scanlan, meaning there were no songs, no pelvic thrusts, no inspiration for Pike.

Travis wears t-shirt that reads "Muscle Wizards cast fist"

Clarotta (Clarence) has something to eat. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a sense of humour as he says "I hate puns!"

Most of the party members experience near death from a very heavy fall. Heavy battle with a lava pit.

Hashtag: #CastleGrayskull

Re: Critical Role: D&D with Matt Mercer and crew
Thursday 16th April was the 6th episode of the story. This had the full cast as last week Sam Riegel was absent. The most notable inclusion from this episode was the live action intro. My favourite was Scanlan as Sam Riegel does what Scanlan would do. Also, Matt Mercer can magically control gravity as he threw dice into the air and stop them from falling.

Critical Role Episode 6: Breaching the Emberhold

Highlights from this week:

Some members were Critical Role related t-shirts.

Pike kisses Scanlan, he doesn't notice.

Scanlan kisses Percy.

Pike reminds everyone that Keyleth killed a child in the past.

Tiberius asks: "what are you doing?" Vax replies: "I'm going to kill someone, hold please"

Tiberius says to everyone: "Encourage violence"

Grog turns into Mortal Kombat mode.

Scanlan sings: "As long as I got my song and flute, Gonna give you some hit points, of our love" inspired from Suit and Tie by Justin Timberlake.

Scanlan notices a buldge in Grog's pants as Lady Kima destroys a dwarf.

Grog asks Lady Kima "would you like to"

Things get very tense between two NPC's.

Re: Critical Role: D&D with Matt Mercer and crew
Thursday 23rd April marks episode 7 of Critical Role. Unfortunately Travis Willingham was absent so Grog wasn't around.

Critical Role Episode 7: The Throne Room

This episode managed to stretch close to 4 hours. By far the longest episode and perhaps one of the most intense. Best described as no one makes it out unharmed.


Scanlan sings "we're walking down a hall, nobody's watching us", inspired from Rockwell - Somebody's watching me and "Heal the Vax, make him a better Elf, for you and for me", inspired by Michael Jackson - Heal the World.

Scanlan takes a dump on the guest bed whilst invisible.

Liam O'Brien does an impression of Grog's "I will like to rage". Also "Vax-inate your kids". A PSA by Vax'ildan.

Keyleth becomes a Scorpion.

Tiberius becomes a god.

Scanlan tries to get the Duergar king to do a headstand, but fails.

Scanlan wins and says "you should have stood on your head".

Matt drops down an hour glass.

Trinket the hero.

Re: Critical Role: D&D with Matt Mercer and crew
Thursday 1st May, marked edition 8 of Critical Role. After last week's intense encounter, the group barely made it out of the battle and the lava pouring into the room. Once again Travis Willingham was absent.

Critical Role Episode 8: Glass and Bone


Scanlan suggests to leave Grog, causing an uproar among the group. If they did leave Grog, who would accompany Scanlan to the houses where they pay for lady favours?

Scanlan sings: "Wherever you go, whatever damage they done, we will be right here waiting to heal you". Even Pike joined in. Song inspired by Richard Marx - Right here waiting.

Clarotta and Lady Kima to keep watch as everyone rests. Scanlan asks "what if they start having sex?" (not the actual words used but it means the same). Everyone, including the chat start laughing.

The tension between Keyleth and Lady Kima becomes very frosty.

Vax says "It's not a JRPG". In regards to tentacle monsters.

Trinket turns into a Persian kitten to save weight. The females of the group love it, Trinket not so much.

Scanlan shoots himself in the foot in regards to the gender of an dwarf. Makes himself very popular among the women of the group.

It only takes 5HP (Hit points) to kill a kitten.

Watching Laura Bailey visually upset as Trinket is down.

A new hero gets the "how you do want to do this?"

return of the an old hashtag: #SaveGrog

Thursday 21 May, the 11th episode of this campaign and this one was grueling. Episode itself lasted nearly 5 hours.

Tiberius gets the "how do you want to do this?"

At the end, for reaching over 3000 subs, Geek & sundry played Just Dance. In the studio, Caitlin Glass paid a visit to Critical Role as she was in town. She joined in the fun. Most notably, both Matt and Caitlin with Zac and Erika danced to Dead or Alive's You spin me right round. It was Levi and Petra reunion. Caitlin also took pictures which are on a her twitter page.

Some clips with no sound of Matt and Caitlin dancing:

What I like to see happen is Laura, Marisha, Ashley and Caitlin dance to Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, whilst playing Just Dance 2015.

Re: Critical Role: D&D with Matt Mercer and crew
Special episode on 28th May, where this was a tutorial for playing D&D. Some members of Critical Role turned up. They roped in Dan Casey, Zac Eubank and Ify Nwadiwe. Zac especially was dressed as a unicorn, which was inevitably dry humped by Erika Ishii. Matt spent a large portion doing a tutorial of Dungeon mastering.

Dungeons & Dragons Campaign Tips - Critical Role RPG Show: Episode 12

A short campaign was played with the roped in guests. After the campaign, the legend of the Good, the Rad and the Nubbly was born.

It would have been good if the actors played the NPC's, however Matt was god-like in this campaign.

Re: Critical Role: D&D with Matt Mercer and crew
Thursday 11th June marked the 14th edition of Critical Role.

Sam Riegel was unavailable and both Travis and Laura were in Florida for Metrocon so they used Facetime on the ipad. Finally, geek and sundry are now using youtube to archive Critical Role, in glorious 1080p. Monday's are now the official day when Critical Role is available to be watched outside of geek & sundry twitch channel.

Critical Role | Episode 14: Shopping and Shipping.


Tiberius has his own bag of holding.

Tiberius: "story of my life"

Vox Machina meet the Sovereign Uriel and the Council of Tal’Dorei.

Taliesin/Percy's face changes when the mention of the name Briarwood is said.

Percy catches the Sovereign, asks about the Briarwoods.

Grog asks Lady Kima if she can have relationships, Kima blushes.

Finally, Gilmore's Glorious Goods is on show.

Matt describes Gilmore's attire as a Wizard tracksuit (it at least its not made from polyester)

Gilmore and Vax go on a man-date.

Shopping and bartering as it appears Vex is the accountant of Vox Machina.

Matt was fabulous as Gilmore. No wonder he's a massive hit with the players.

No episode this week as Geek and Sundry are covering events at E3.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 05:16 AM.
