Critical Role Episode 98 - The Mines Of The Many

Matt reveals that the video game Injustice 2 he did facial capture for Deadshot, for a character that wears a mask the whole time.

Battle royale for next week?

Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite fame) confirmed for the 1st June

Pretty funny that NetherRealm Studios did facial capture on Matt for his performance as Deadshot, who's face is covered. Sam revealed that actor Jon Header is to be a guest player on the 1st June.

Learning the current predicament of the Darrington family, Taryon meets with both his sister Marion and his mother (who is currently nameless). Vox Machina decide to visit the Grumpy Lily to meet with "The Many". After arriving, they were lead to another tavern where Corshard might be at. Turns out that he's a patron at the tavern and provides the group details of the debt that is owed by the Darrington's. Corshard informs them that a being is causing havoc in one of the mines that is owned by the Myriad. Vox Machina take the mission of exterminating the creature in the mine. After venturing into the mine and defeating the baby creature, they leave the mine but not clearing the other creatures that are currently inside.

"Life needs aloe to live" a quote from Taryon Darrington. I seriously hope that Critical Role gets some sponsorship from cosmetics companies. Aloe is pretty good stuff.

I don't think I've been able to get into this show, but that's very interesting that they did facial capture for Deadshot. I do wonder why they did that?

I think its pretty strange too considering Deadshot has his face covered. Would have been funnier if NetherRealm studios asked Matt to wear a mask or tights over his face with the facial capture markers/dots for more method acting.

Three facts from ducks as Lionel talks to them

Scanlan apologies to Pike

To Ank'Harel

This started off with Vox Machina finishing off the task that Korshad assigned them. After clearing that, Vox Machina returned to the Darrington estate where Taryon informs the family that the debt as been cleared, but their lives will be different. Taryon promises his family that he will return and will leave Vox Machina, only after he retrieves Doty 2.0. It's too bad the arranged marriage girl Lydia never makes an appearance.

Vox Machina are introduced to an Orc named Lionel Gayheart, played by Jon Heder, and are asked by the Orc to visit the meatman. The meatman reveals himself, although secretly as Scanlan Shorthalt. The feelings were mixed among the group. Scanlan informs the group that he and his associates have discovered another ziggurat in Ank'Harel.

I have to talk about Lionel Gayheart and Jon Heder. At the moment, he's my favourite guest player as his character Lionel a big dork who is a nice person. Lionel just happens to be slightly smarter than Grog, which makes Grog jealous. Grog fights with Lionel which amazingly Lionel wins by grinding on Grog, in which Jon demonstrates on Sam (there's a gif of it). Lionel's backstory was pretty funny and his ability to speak to ducks is amazing. In truth, I think pulling the trigger on Scanlan's return was too early. However it makes sense for Lionel's appearance.

: It's raining gnomes. Hallelujah! It's raining gnomes. Everywhere we go. Short, stout, tough and mean. The handsomest I've ever seen!" Inspired from It's raining men by The Weather girls

Start off with a big congratulations to Critical Role and Geek and Sundry for reaching 100 episodes. I especially liked the thank you to Orion Acaba for his role on Critical Role.

The episode resumed where Vox Machina travelling to Ank'Harel where they visit Scanlan's hideout. They meet Kaylie in her new role in the family business. Venturing to the Ziggurat, they encounter an old enemy, Delilah Briarwood, who escapes into the black orb.

This episode set a new record in being the longest and it went over 5 hours. Resurrecting previous enemies. Vox Machina did kill off Delilah Briarwood. Question is, was she resurrected or even the real Delilah Briarwood.

Scanlan was back with a bang as he spat out new tunes of inspiration. Travis with his sharpness quickly reminded Sam to play 2 characters.

It was funny when Matt used a Jojo's Bizzare adventure reference with the stand. I guess Pike's stand would be Sarenrae.

A short episode with no Jon Heder, so Matt played the character of Lionel Gayheart. Vox Machina bust out of the Ziggurat in Ank'Harel. Return to Whitestone where Percy breaks the news to Cassandra about the re-appearance of Delilah Briarwood. Taryon says his goodbyes as he repairs Doty 2.0. Vox Machina with Scanlan enter the black orb from Whitestone's Ziggurat. Now in the Shadowfell they seek out Delilah Briarwood.

Critical Role set change now has a table where each member are sitting much closer together. I'm not a fan of clip-on mics as they don't always pick up sound, especially when they move around.

This episode ended pretty poorly. Started with Vox Machina acquiring a Gloom stalker (named Mr Mephistopheles). They even break into a house and interrogate a person for information. Seeing weapons, Vex concludes that an invasion to the other realm (home world) is on the cards. Rushing to the tower to stop the ritual; an inner voice from Vecna is heard. Finally reach the top of the tower, they encounter Delilah Briarwood, Death Knight and Vecna. Vox Machina were completely beaten as the twins die. Vax is turned into dust. Vex dies and is resurrected. Grog was banished away from the tower. Although Delilah was defeated, Vecna was proven too powerful as Keyleth transports them to the Feywild to retreat, while Vax is still in dust.

Escaping the Shadowfell, Vox Machina find themselves in the Feywild. Vex learns of the death of Vax, with the remains of his armour and ashes. Keyleth revealing that it would cost 25,000G worth of diamonds to resurrect Vax. Camping in the Feywild, Vax magically appears infront of Pike, which alerts the other members. Vax reveals that his time is limited, assuming they defeat Vecna. Taking a trip Vasselheim with the plan to ask for help from the deities of the world, Vox Machina split off into two groups. One group was successful, the other not so much. Heading to the fire Ashari to give warning of the possible Vecna invasion, Vox Machina then head to the Island of Renewal.

Big highlights for me were the talk between the Raven Queen and Vax and the adventures of Grog and Scanlan.

A short episode this as Ashley and Liam were in the east coast. Ashley in New York to shoot season 3 of Blindspot. After landing on the Island of Renewal, Vox Machina headed towards Sarenrae. Turns out that they couldn't figure out how to reach her. Pike, already a believer, had no issue. As for the rest, they struggled but became believers of Sarenrae. Finally reaching Sarenrae, the goddess gives Pike a power-up and teleports them close to the Fortress of the Sun.

Arriving near the Fortress of the Sun, Keyleth decides to speak to a local tree. Unfortunately, local tree was in a grumpy mood (which provided some good comedy) and stated the obvious to Keyleth as to where they could find Pelor.

Reaching the Fortress of the Sun, they meet Pelor where he asks who would volunteer themselves to be a champion. Vex volunteered and was tasked a trial. She succeeded and evolved into a new Vex.
