What do we really know about Bo Jingles? Where can Akshay get a drink in this town? Who is the mystery man with the cigar?

    If you guys want to talk about politics can you make a political podcast and talk about it there? I come to Heroes & Halfwits to get away from the real world. I just want to see funny people kill dragons, save towns, and cast spells. I don't need to hear the same regurgitated tripe that comes from Facebook.

    I love the side characters almost as much as the main crew. Also, I don't think I've ever wanted two characters to get together more then Na and Mogar.

    What's the difference between radius and diameter in DnD? They are arguing like radius is WORSE, but that's half of the diameter!

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

      2 days ago

      I think it is bad because a circle with a 10 foot diameter would be smaller than a circle with a 10 foot radius (20 foot diameter). So in the circumstance presented in the show, it is more difficult for Bo to hit the enemy and not his companions because the circle is larger.


      Someone correct me if I am wrong :).

      Geoff was thinking a 10 ft. diameter cone  vs. the spell's actual 10 ft. radius sphere centered on a point. Cones in DnD are measured from an original point and reach a maximum width/diameter the same distance from the origin point, like Michael's breath attack goes out 15 ft. in a cone and reaches a maximum width of 15 ft. The sphere encompasses much more volume and would thus have hit multiple allies.

    Can we go back to 1 hour episodes? I can't keep up with these long episodes. It's like trying to force a whole meal when all I want is a snack. I only got an hour in.

    I friggin KNEW they were on the plane with Sigil. I hope they go there (They won't though) Sigil is my favorite place to DM in. I run a end of the campaign contest there. Sigil is pieced together from random bits of abandoned parts of other planes. Constantly growing and adding new bits. So I rp that The Lady has many places in reserve in a pocket dimension. Its a constantly shifting and changing labyrinth It's a race to the center. Full of so much random-ness. I looove running it.

      Grimmlock72 Cause they have such convenient places to stop in the middle. I'm complaining about a developing issue. These was great when it was an hour long. Now they are too long with no breaks, So I either have to re-watch parts to find my spot (because it doesn't continue from last play spot) Or choose to not watch it. 

      I'm complaining about a problem that doesn't exist, FOR YOU. Good job.

    ...and the hand-holding begins by Frank. This campaign is beyond the capabilities of the players. It's like dropping someone who doesn't know video games into an open-world game like GTA - they would have no idea what to do, where to go, how to even begin, or what they're capable of doing.

    While watching them fumble around is entertaining, this amount of paralysis and begging Frank to carry them is a little frustrating.

    Hate to be "that guy", but have to point out to Ryan that extra attack isn't a universal thing, but is gained by the more "fight-ey" classes (Paladin, Fighter, Ranger, Monk, Barbarian) and Geoff gets it at 6 because he is College of Valor. Warlocks' only extra attack option is the Thirsting Blade invocation, but it is only for Pact of the Blade warlocks and applies to their Pact Weapon. Ryan is Pact of the Chain. He could get it by multi-classing, but it would take a while.


    *While this statement ended up being dumb, I am leaving it here for the record of my transgressions. All will be left to the end of time where and when I will be judged to the eternal flame, and I will tell unto it, "Judge me with full intent and knowledge of my utterances and abysmal failures, and do your worst." 


    All seriousness though, thanks to the intelligent person who pointed out my ignorance, you have done a great deed, and now, even being the worst form of "that guy" possible, I am now better informed and hopefully less likely to jam my foot in my mouth (at least without better research).

      Eldrich Blast creates two beams when spellcaster reaches level 5. It's gonna be three beams at 11th level and four at 17th level. Thirsting Blade is definitely not the case here, because, as you said it is available only to Bladelocks, and only applied to your pact weapon. I trust Ryan's ability to read and understand what he can and can't use.

    You know, for someone who loves to talk himself blue in the face about shit that doesn't progress the plot at all a lot of the time, Geoff is a bit insufferable when other characters or Frank want to converse or have exposition.  I love the guy and he has some of the fucking funniest bits and remarks in the campaign, but I don't understand why he seems to have such a problem with other people talking between eachother.

    For all the people who say that Ryan was metagaming about Shatter's range, when he was supposed to bring it up because bringing it up anytime when the spell wasn't being cast isn't going to be remember that well. Ryan did the right thing of bringing it up before the spell was going to be used by Geoff. It's perfectly acceptable to do this because Geoff was using the spell wrong all this time and the impact of the correction will be remembered more. 


    I'm sure at some point Geoff will cast Shatter on the party because Bojingles is a dick.

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

      Agreed. Also there is metagaming and then there is helping your party RP their character. Bo would have know about his own spell and not injured his own party. Ryan corrected Geoff. Albus didn't correct Bo.

    I can't say I recognize the guy who hopped in as Orma, but he clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to D&D. His turns are quicker than any other stand-in Orma. Not crapping on the other Ormas though. I enjoyed most of them. Anyone know who he is? I've probably seen him before, but am too tired/blind to realize who he is.

    I think I preferred how they released episodes last season. They episodes are so long now it seems like all they do for pretty much half of the episode is talk about random shit.

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

      There is literally no difference between how they did episodes last season and how they're doing them this season. They film multiple episodes at one time, and then cut them up. The only difference is how many pieces they cut them up into. Like, last season they would play for 6 hours at a time, and then cut them up into like 4 separate episodes. This season they still play for like 6 hours at a time, but they only cut it into 2 episodes. You could stop watching this episode at the halfway mark and come back and finish watching next week and it would literally be the exact same as how they were doing it last season.

      Yeah, that was a bit too on the nose in parallel with current events. It's one thing to be satirical, but this comes off as agenda pushing. If I want to watch a show about politics, I'll watch a show about politics. Don't shoehorn this shit into a D&D show.

      agreed, but I really liked how they brought "Drumpf" into this, I was dying with all the crap they were saying with there being a crazy gnome mayor who somehow won the election and is building a wall to keep the demons out while making them pay for it, is violating BARFTO, and might be involved with the Slussians. I know people think that politics should stay outta shows like this, but Trump has been something to big to ignore and the whole concept of him is just something that would happen in a comedy movie. Right now he probably has a dozen memes about him, it's very easy to make a joke about him.

      Ya know, I kind of agree. At first it was very satirical, just a commentary on a president. But then they got into the corruption and collusion part and it seemed very shoe-horned.

      That said, there's no saying this is an absolute reflection of opinions. It's also just likely it's a commentary on a president, and corruption is the easiest problem to write in in such a case.

      A little tasteless, but I'm just choosing to view it as a game independent from the real world (which it is).

      Yeah and it was kind of forced in there. So far everything else has been completely imaginative but I feel like it wasn't creative at all. At least that is my opinion. Everything else Frank has done has been pretty damn great and felt like a story or book I have never read but that was like him just wanting to interject something unneccessary. It would have been nice to move on from it too after a quick joke but it kept getting brought back up and became an actual unneccessary plot. I honestly looked like how Geoff looked just wanting to get it over at parts. Oh well.

      I'd agree, but the fact they used 'Drumpf', which has turned into a derogatory word for Trump really crosses the line between 'satirical political commentary' into 'we listen to CNN too much'.
