Things that MN REALLY need to remember:1) Scanlan was an epic bull artist.2) Nott couldn't lie her way out of paying for an overdue library charge.3)Nott is NOT Scanlan… STOP LETTING HER TALK!

What if, and just go with me on this, but what if Nott's reincarnation as a Goblin has to do with the powers of the Dodecahedron!?

SPOILERS —-What Caleb did surrendering the dodeca was probably the best call possible. They could not defeat that whole room, let alone escape with their lives. They could not convince them to just let them leave. They couldn't do anything other than play the ace up their sleeve. Had they gone to prison here, their belongings would have been searched, the bags of holding/haversack would have been flipped inside out and the Crin (Krin? Creen?) would have discovered it anyways and then they would have had an even tougher time trying to convince them they didn't steal it or try… Read more »

I wish whoever is doing the Caption for these videos would become more consistent. The scrolling caption is killing me…I like it when the whole sentence comes up for the person that is currently talking and the spelling of the names is done right also.

I always thought Taliesin’s Cadeucus voice was a chill Mel Gibson impression.

I'm so glad Caleb did that. The information Matt's been dropping on us since they found the dodeka and what he's been saying about his intent of exploring grey morality and subverting tropes about "evil" races in this campaign has pointed in the direction that the Krynn aren't "the bad guys" and this scene sements it for me. The Empire is corrupt and we're probably going to find out a lot more about their shady business in the future.

I like how the intro has every other character being cool, then there's just Ashley's character being generic since she's never here… Can we just drop her character off permanently already?

"Should we let our deception/persuasion skilled party members handle this very delicate and dangerous conversation with the queen? Naaa, let's just have the -3 deception rogue tell some farfetched lies and see how it goes…"

The fact that nott and jester will not defer to the party face and treat meeting an empress as a big joke is fucking infuriating.

They would have searched all their possessions and found it anyway. It was a great play to spin that.

Based on how much remains to be seen about the Abyssal artifact and such, I think the main BBEG of the campaign will be heavily associated with the Abyss. (This is an assumption based on info I have only at the beginning of this video, so take it with a grain of salt.)

When Sam Said he had celebrity endorsements, I was honestly expecting it to be a bunch of cuts of Sam doing celebrity impressions. Surprised he had real celebrities.

Beau saying "we're from the empire" but getting away with it is the Mighty Nein equivalent to Ryuji screaming about the phantom thieves.

When I think of the Bright Queen, I "hear" her voice as the same as Lady Galadriel.
