Talking Crit: Vecna the Ascended

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 betrayal, we got to see heart break, and we got to see heroes overcome evil.  All it was missing was a dog doing tricks.  Special guest Joe Manganiello pulled a fast one on Vox Machina, that left a lot of questions unanswered.  Fortunately, it leaves us with the Question of the Week.

Question of the Week this go around looks at Arkhan the Cruel and whether he will show up in the next campaign.  Time will pass, but will old words heal?  Will the new characters have to go after the Hand of Vecna?  Give a vote and let us know what you think.

No artistic shout outs this week, because we wanted to focus on Sam Riegel.  His counter spell was one of the most heartbreaking things we’ve ever seen.  It was Sam, it was Scanlan, it was a lot of emotion tied up into a critical moment.  A lot of people missed it the first time around, but Matt Colleville made an amazing video to examine that moment.  Give it a watch, and please share your love with Sam.  The amount of planning, the heartbreaking emotion that went into saving his friend was just beautiful.  We all wished we could have been there to hug and comfort him.

The interesting part about the video is watch the raw clip at the end.  Watch as everyone else on the cast slowly begin to realize what just transpired.  Joe Manganiello’s face when he figures it out is amazing.


That is it for this week.  The epilogue will happen, and then we gear up for the new campaign.
