Talking Crit: The Howling Mines

We are well into a dungeon crawl, and the new group is getting their feet wet, burnt, crushed, they have some foot stuff happening, and not all of it’s great.  We discuss where we think the group is headed, and what is brewing as an antagonist for the party.  We also discuss Toll the Dead and just how strong that cantrip is.  Yikes, do you think it needs to be nerfed?  Let us know.

Question of the Week looks at the Gnolls in the Howling Caves.  Will we see the end of them, or will we see them continue to be antagonists throughout the campaign?  Leave us your vote and let us know what you think is going to happen to the followers of Yeenoghu.

The first shout out goes to Doonami and his amazing splash image of all the D&D Streams and podcast characters hanging out.  This is akin to those special posters you line up at cons to get the exclusive prints.  It’s a find your favourite PC’s, and then find the rest.  The colours, the poses, and the interactions between all the PC’s are perfect.  Of course Jim is showing off his cantrips; of course Walnut and Jester are hanging out, of course Fjord and K’Thriss are having a one sided dark pact conversation.  This has comedy, it has character, and it has a whole lot of talent.  Is it possible to order this as a poster?  Because it would look awesome hanging on a wall.

The second shout out goes to @Karekokareo and her awesome animated gif intro for Vox Machina.  The transitions are smooth and beautiful, you’d want to hear some awesome music tuned up with it.  There are time you will check for a volume button just to make sure you’re not missing out.  It’s perfect in capturing the right poses and actions for all the characters.  Having it on a loop is perfect, and it could very have been used as the intro for the older VM episodes.  It’s hard to choose which moment is better, the dagger, dagger, dagger, from Vax, or the crotch lightning from Scanlan.

It’s a nice call back to some great memories.  Thank you so much for sharing this, and thank you for helping us remember how awesome the Vox Machina crew was.

That is it for this week.  We will see you this Thursday, and then be ready to record on Tuesday.  Don’t forget to follow @Doonami and @Karekareo to catch more of their awesome work.  You will not be disappointed.
