    Loving all of this so far. Seriously, new favorite overall RT show. Just curious as to what Geoff was doing...

    This is easily my favourite RT/AH show. I'd love to see Griffon continue as much as possible, though, if it's something she enjoyed. She really adds a certain je ne sais quoi that's worth keeping, in my opinion.

    I can't believe how funny and entertaining this is! Started off great with Griffon/Orma just immediately eating the frog, and the switch where Jack showed up was brilliant! Gus, as always, great with human master race comments.


    My favorite moment though was probably "I tell you that you're stupid AND YOU BELIEVE IT." Fucking gold.

    In 5e any character can make any ability check. Michael should have been able to make a religion check. Just because you are not proficient in it doesn't mean you can't do it in 5th.

      He was told that he could roll for it, but he either chose not to, or didn't hear it. (Though it's also possible that they don't know this.)

    I'm super excited about this show. Since Nerd Poker has been on a hiatus, I've been wanting to get into another D&D podcast. Only gripe is Ryan continuely rolling before he explains his action.

    Would like to see this with Matthew Mercer as the GM once. With all the D&D podcast I've listened too, this just seems awkward with everyone talking over themselves and very little roleplaying. Maybe with time it will become more fluid and easier to listen to.

      Well, in a way it's just like Theater Mode. It's something very different from how they normally have to work together and present together so there is going to be a learning curve while they adjust to it.

    1:55, That definition for Saving throws isn't valid for 5th edition since Fortitude, Reflex, and Will scores are gone.

    This isn't meant to be replacement text but rather an explanation of how 5e saving throws work.

    Saving Throws are rolled against a set DC (difficulty class, number to equal or beat) with either no stat (death saving throws) or against a stat. A constitution saving throw would have you to add your con modifier to the roll. If you have proficiency in Con saving throws from any source you would add your proficiency bonus, which increases as you level.

    griffon's departure made this less enjoyable for me. her replacement add nothing to the entertainment value. he was very quiet and brought a sort of awkward tension to the show.

      @AssassinC13, i wasn't being a hater. i genuinely believe he brought nothing to the show. if i was a hater then i wouldn't like him in anything he did. i didn't like him for this one instance compared to who was on before him.


      @Mbbr223 I dont know him by face but im sure hes done other RT stuff in which he was probably better. for this thoughhe looked uncomfortable nad tense which for me made the show less enjoyable since it didnt seem like he wanted to engage in the antics of the others like griffon did.

    • Echo420G FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I'm fairly certain that Griffon had to take care of something and that it was planned between Jack, Frank, and Griffon. Another thought is that her character may serve as a sort-of hot seat considering how she is the only one not featured in the banner. Time will tell.


      EDIT: Also, if you recall, Frank had Jack/Griffon's character etch all of the information into the side of her weapon which may serve as a way to not have to explain to this new person who everyone is, every time the character is swapped. I don't see another reason as to why Frank had her do that.

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

      I thought the swap was hilarious and appropriate, but I do want Griffon back. She's good at the role playing aspect and can be pretty funny, too. Plus I just miss Griffon being in videos.

    I have to say, good job to the DM for wrangling these morons when their antics take too long. There's the perfect balance of fucking around and progression that the humor is there in full force and the moment it starts to drag on, the DM makes everyone pay attention again and get the ball rolling more. Perfect choice on the DM, though I still don't know his name.

    They really need to stop talking over Frank as he's trying to explain stuff, as a DM myself I know how hard it makes it to run a game.

    My first theory about Geoff's disappearance was that he was running around lighting the forest on fire, but that went kaput. WHAT WAS GEOFF DOING I NEED TO KNOW.

    Loved every second of this, it was really well done. It looked really good with all the extra effort from Griffon and Geoff (I assume he helped) on the models used for both episodes of this show. I laughed so many times due to everyone but my top moment had to be Gus for his arguing with Griffon and Michael about the Tiger and then the Frog.


    Looking foward to the next episode, I'd love to see this being recorded live as well.

  • MigrantOwl

    What was the point of having Jack take over for Griffon's character? I could see the DM controlling her character if she had to leave, but I noticed her handing Geoff something later on. It would have been better to just get to the ship faster and have Jack guest as a survivor. Kind of hard to develop characters if you are putting different players behind them.

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

      10 months ago

      I think Griffon just had to leave during this episode, so they sort of preliminarily came up with the wine-amnesia idea and let Jack stand in for this episode while at the same time justifying why Jack would come in and have no idea what's going on (amnesia). That's what I think (read: hope) is the case anyway.

    • Jericho003 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      It felt more like it was an easy way to swap Griffon out for Jack permanently, and if so means Griffon might have decided to not participate for one good reason or another.

    I would love it if they were to have some graphics come up on screen whenever any of their characters do an action or specifically make combat actions. Essentially like in the Magic: Duel of the Planeswalkers games.

  • DanC9

    10 months ago

    Well then, I'm not sure how I feel about that. Funny joke, but I hope Griffon comes back. I wouldn't mind a joke where she occasionally pops in and out of character with Jack.

    I know after watching a couple of these a lot of people have expressed interest in joining a group because they've never had the chance to play. I have been considering starting up a new online group on roll20 or somesuch if there are enough interested people.

    It's been cool to meet Frank as the DM, he's always been talked a lot about by Griffin and Geoff, especially in the early days of Drunk Tank when they'd talk about DnD. I really loved those recaps of what had happened so to have a weekly show (which is produced REALLY well for a new show) dedicated to RT's own storyline is great. To me this has taken over the Podcast in terms of wanting more and more. Perhaps it's time for me to finally playing with a regular group near where I live. Anyone know some good online communities? I had a look in to it but didn't see much but I also don't know where to look aside from Google.

    Love the cast too! I want Griffin back but having Jack as a guest star for a couple episodes should be funny. No sausage fest campaigns though, please :P.

      roll20.net is a free service for playing online and is a good place to look if you wanna play with online friends. But if you're looking for local groups a good place to start is a tabletop gaming store near you, they should have a bulletin board and hopefully some looking for group posts or looking for player posts. Barring that its a great place to meet people who play. They might even have a facebook group or that sorta thing as well.

    Oh my god, thank you so much for the change in the audio. The background and ambient noises are so much better this time, love the addition of the music for when Geoff sings, and the mics don't seem to be going nuts this episode.


    My only other comment is that Frank looks like a Black Lantern in that outfit.
