    so to sum up this episode, the group learns about Jackelheart, the demon city full of shapeshifters, Geoff makes people fart and sings his bard songs, Michael amazes some children, and Griffon has a FFM Threesome

    I'd like to preface what I'm about to say.


    Obviously everyone has very different play-styles that mesh well/poorly with the wrong/right people. I wholeheartedly understand that.


    However, in my own opinion drawn from my experience with RP, DnD, and gaming in general (both board and digital) I feel as though the show is suffering from the very lack of what makes DnD great for me. This show is very light in roleplay. Nearly bare-bones. I enjoy this show, I really do. I just wish they relied more heavily on creating content in the world Frank has conjured, rather than having a more meta focused show.


    My biggest concern, which doesn't affect my viewing of the show in any way, is that only Jack and Griffin seem to be roleplaying as their character. Michael's character is just Michael in plate armor. Gus's character is just Gus. My easily overcome problem is just that the characters are not separate entities, they are the player.


    Back when I DM'ed, I made it painfully clear that You ≠ Your Character. I never claimed a player had to stay in character at all times, but I would make it clear that the player is not the one in the game. The player controls a character in a plot driven world that the player can interact with through an avatar IF they did it in the life of the character they created.


    I love this show, and have spent many hours on it in the past few weeks. I'm not going anywhere, and I hope to see it reach the potential it has to be an actual, improvised, plot driven Achievement Hunter production that rivals the suspense of Day 5, the comedy of RvB, and features the creations of the AH cast members we all love and enjoy on a daily basis.

    Orma is continuing the fine tradition of 5e barbarians getting threesomes.


    I wish they wouldn't worry so much about getting XP. My group had this discussion about XP a week ago and felt that we didn't really need XP for the most part unless you're doing a lot of crafting, having level adjustments, or even following the actual mutliclass rules in 3.5. Also if you have a consistent group like here (I'm counting Jack and Griffith being the same character), you don't need XP since it would be the same for everyone. Even in 5e modules, they even don't do the XP system and have leveling up as a milestone for finishing chapters. You know when you're going to level for the most part and reduces an aspect of bookkeeping that's a bit unneccessary.

      They're gamers. First and foremost gamers, especially those who do it for a living, want to do their job better. In order to do that they need to gain a level or two.

      Ryan needs a spell not reliant on him being struck to hit back(dm should've warned him once as a noob courtesy), Geoff clearly needs more usages of inspiration or w/e their calling the Bardic Gift nowadays plus Song of Rest will help with how crushed Michael gets. Gus and Michael both need the level so they can get more slots to roll smites or pop spells(imo smites are best since two pallies can pretty much smite whore a boss down at low level)

      They're trying to grow their characters and advance not just the plot but also what they can do. I've DM'd for a few years now and I have to say that being goal oriented when you have random encounters is a good thing. If they have a small list of goal that apply to the whole party a.k.a. meta-game goals(get off the island, find X artifact/person, level up) it gives them common ground while the character/rp plots (Bo Jingles trying to get Orma's hammer, Bor Ealis and Mogar trading the dagger, Albus and his...sampling) create friction and draws lines forcing non-meta progression. Both are required for cohesion and good times and I have to tell you some of the best games I have overseen were ones where the players didn't know who they could or could not trust.

      Honestly with noobs I would've done a little more hand holding and started them somewhere in the range of 2-5 depending on how long they want this to go on. Gives them some wiggle room to change their minds later if the series lasts and also gives them more "oomph" at the get go so if it does fall off then they still were capable of doing more than spam Eldritch blast.

      Which reminds me, DM isn't doing a good job with noobs. Ryan has 2 more spells from his Pact Boon he isn't using(or doesn't know about) Fey gives sleep and Faerie Fire, Fiend gives command and Burning hands and Old one Gives hideous laughter and dissonant whispers.

      Oh well, no one is going to read this

    also, in perusing DnD resources, I found a quartet of homebrew sentient weapons that are

      Yeah they are, for sure. But fuck it, why not. Homebrews are a great way to bring worlds together.

      oh no! i meant that in the most positive way! I love world-merging homebrews. One time, i played a game where the party found a rare artifact- the Glove of the Saiyan, which fired a insta-kill blast if the wearer screamed a certain phrase.

      in the same campaign, Cthulu got involved as a bartender.

      Similar diet to cats, mostly hunt rodents out in the wild, though they will eat bugs in a pinch if needed but they can't subsist on them alone.

    So Geoff/Bo Jingles stole Griffion/Orma's maul right? That way she doesn't know that she doesn't trust him. I don't know how that's gonna work though. She will remember or the others will remind her. Plus there is the fact that Geoff already tried this once and everyone in the party saw it. I know for a fact that Gus/Bor Ealis and Micheal/Mogar will be sure to give Geoff crap if the maul goes missing.

    • amidja16 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I don't think he stole it. He just wrote some new/false information on it.

      It has 'don't trust bo jingles" etched on it. He doesn't want to steal it, just to change that etching.

      Probably wrote "I love Bo Jingles" or something. Considering he kept on saying they would marry.

    Based on the RTX panel, despite some people complaining about Albus derailing, it seems that people love derailing the most. After hearing about Geoff taking a great personal pride in trying to purposely derail games (but refraining for the show), people seemed to be excited to see him try.


    Also, Vin Diesel guest? Yes. (I would also offer RT's own D&D&D for a guest pool.)

    It pleases me that Griffon seems to be interested in the world and characters.

    I mean, I have fun with the group trolling each other, but having someone who gives a handy balance that makes it more palatable.

    series is getting sluggish is still good and witty but some advice is either make the episodes longer or move faster you spend an entire episode in the same places and not a day passed yet. Needs to change or this won't work out :/

      Do you know why the show is is called heroes and halfwits...? Because of how they play..... Thats the whole point of the show. Them trying to play and learn at the same time while also hanging out with their friends. Don't expect them to get far. You know these are the people who usually sit on podcasts and have to talk all hour
