Talking Crit

It's a hot one out there.  Life is pretty hectic, so we don't have a lot of postings to talk to you about.  Here is the new episode on the new sound gear. Once the summer calms down a bit, we will be back full tilt.

THe Nerds

As the new year rolls around, we get the second half of Star Trek Discovery.  Jon, Lindsay, and Miles talk about what they taught about the first half.  It's not your normal Star Trek, and that's probably a good thing.  It's time to change how

The D&D Podcast

"Hail to the King" Who run Omu-town? Group B is carving a path through the Shrines of the Nine Trickster Gods.  Nothing can stop them now, except maybe the creature who truly reigns over Omu.  Eku is still catatonic after he shared dreams with Durand, as Artus

Talking Crit: Steam and Conversation

Do you hear the people sing? Singing the songs of angry men?

Zadash seems to be a place of haves and have nots.  It also seems to be a source of beating drums that sound like they’re going to revolt.  The Mighty Nein have landed and settled, and in some instances, a little too well.  We see some classic tropes low level PC’s trying to scam or pull one over NPC’s.  We also see some great group bonding via the steam bash, and an interesting look at the upper class.  A big anti-magic dome you say?  Well, I have some interesting questions about that.  There’s also the dangling rumour that The Traveller is Artagan.  There’s a lot going on, and we’ll have to wait for Thursday to see what gets dropped on us.

Question of the Week looks at Nott the Brave this time around.  There’s a lot of questions about alignment and age that come with our Goblin Arcane Trickster.  How old is she?  Are old goblins more dangerous because of all that they have survived. or are all Goblins young, because they never make it past a certain age?  Give your vote and let us know what you think.

The first shout out this week goes to long time Critter artist, Tess Fowler.  She has created this amazing water colour of Jester and her mother ‘The Ruby of the Sea.’  It’s great to see the technical skill as well as artistic creation that goes into making a watercolour.  The colours, contrast, and composition all make a wonderful scene between Jester and her mother.  It gives us a lot of ideas and possible interactions she could have if she shows up on the show.  PS> I think we’re also hoping that Marcy McGlynn also plays The Ruby of the Sea.

The Second shout out goes to Nich Patzelt and this scene of Pumat Sol meeting Caleb and Nott for the first time, and the first time, and the first time, and the first time.  He captures the soul and personality that Pumat brings.  It was a wholesome scene that has stuck in the minds of critters everywhere.  What an introduction to his first fan art.  It looks like something that belongs in a fantasy novel.  This is such a great image, we can’t wait to see more.  Thank you for this amazing piece.

That is it for this week.  Please follow Tess and Nice, your twitter feed will thank you.  We will see you on Thursday.
