Talking Crit

We have reached the conclusion, and we have laughed, smiled, cried, and wept at the whole campaign.  It is shared story telling at its best.  It was an epic fight with literal ground breaking mechanics.  We got to see guest stars, we got to see

THe Nerds

It's great to finally have Peter Parker home with Marvel. The Nerds sit down to talk about the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man flying back into the MCU.  We all loved the tease we got with Captain America: Civil War, and now we get the full Spidey treatment.

"Dolus, stop messing with Schpmoney." It's getting colder in the Tomb of Rath Modar.  Tarek & The Head Smashers are plunging deeper, encountering more peril and more traps.  They run into a strange encounter in the library, and Tarek experiences some major changes again.  Vondal is

Talking Crit: Shadows of Thomara

The march through the titan continues, and more traps and combat lay in wait for Vox Machina.  There is that feeling of conclusion looming over head for the group.  Not all ends are good; not all ends are bad, but there must always be a finish to our adventure.

 

Big shout out to David Rodrigues as his Vex’alia mash up.  This hits all the right spots for me, because I love Cyber Punk.  It takes me back to the Shadow Run days in Seattle, and trying to evade a mage while getting paid.  This could be found in Bladerunner, Akira, or Seattle in 2076. The bike fills in nicely for the broom, and the colours are a great combination of grim dark, and that city light glow.  She’s somewhere central, but the seedy part of the city, which is typical Vex.  If you haven’t given David a follow by now, go get familiar with his work.  The work he put into this shows, it is fantastic.

 

Our family lost someone important today.  Our dog Rusty passed away due to cancer.  It started a few weeks ago with a limp, and one X-ray can change a life.  This is a rough one for us.  My folks got him as a response to me getting cancer for the first time back in ’06.  We always had a special bond, I’d look at him and he’d look at me, and we just got each other.  He was always full of life.  Anytime someone would come around, ears up and tail wagging, he was just happy to be around people.  He was a good friend, and even better family member.

I’ll miss you Rusty, thank you for sharing your time with us.
