    I think Albus should go back to chaotic neutral after he tried to change Akshay for the better. A neutral evil character would not do that.

    This is currently my favorite RT production, please for the love of god stop with the seasons. New episodes every other week is fine, but no more seasons, just keep chugging on. Heroes is not On the Spot, and does not deserve to be treated like it is!

    While I definitely like the longer episodes we've been getting this season, over all we're losing out on a lot of content, especially if next episode is the last for this season. I went through and added up all the times for the episodes from the first season and compared them to the episodes for this season. Note that this time doesn't include the post shows, the test run pilot episode, or the Christmas one off.....


    Season 1 - 27 hours 23 minutes 46 seconds


    Season 2 (So Far) - 20 hours 43 minutes 55 seconds


    This means that unless the last episode is six and a half hours long, we're going to lose out on several hours of content. Best case scenario, we'll likely be looking at a three hour long episode for the season finale, if that long. This means we'll end up having lost three and a half hours worth of content with the format they started using for this season. The idea they presented at the start of the season was that we'd get roughly the same amount of content, but receive it half as often. In practice though, we're missing out on one or possibly two full episodes worth, as they're trying to stick closer to the two hour mark. On paper, "half the episodes but twice as long" sounds like it would equal the same amount, but in practice, most of the season one episodes were between an hour and fifteen minutes, and two hours long, so double that length would mean a two and a half hour average, with a four hour maximum. Instead we've seen a two hour and fifteen minute average and a three hour maximum.......


    TL;DR - We're missing out on about three and a half hours worth of content with the format presented this season......


    PS: Also, the pilot episode for Heroes and Halfwits is in the "RT Specials" episode list, rather than the Heroes and Halfwits list. Not a big deal, but it does make it hard to find unless you specifically go looking for it.....

    Watching the show really makes me want to try DnD for the first time, anyone have tips for getting started/ finding a local group?

      They sell pre made campaign books which can be pretty fun or create your own adventure like frank does, doesnt have to be too serious can always do a one shot deal to get the idea of it. They have websites for dice if you dont want to spend money before trying it. As to finding a group I just play with my friends but some game shops will sell roleplaying items like DnD and maybe you can ask a clerk there about any groups around.

      Try Roll 20. It's a great website that is free to use, and allows people to play D&D through it rather than having to be there in person. If you check around on there, you can probably either find a session for a new player, or make a post on the forums saying that you've never played and that you are looking to try a session. My friends and I always use Roll 20 for our sessions since we're spread out across the US, and while it's not perfect, it works well.....

      If you do have friends locally that are interested, it's not that hard for a group to learn to play. And somebody is bound to know somebody that can DM.

    Wow, a surprising amount of competent and invested roleplaying from the group. I'm impressed and joyous. I was rather down on the past couple episodes as Frank had to kinda babysit them in terms of making progress...

    But this episode had the perfect balance of arguing / goofing around with real action taken. Bravo.

    I love how the smartest party member is by far the dumbest and brain addled albus and smart as a horse mogar are most often the voices of reason.


     this season has been great and full of surprises, but I wish they had done twenty 90 minute episodes, so we would get a bit more content. As it stands unless next episode is well over 3 hours I think the first season is still longer. Not that I'm complaining we could have had no second season, but when 40-60 minutes of an episode usually takes 10 in game minutes i always want more time for the plot to advance.

      Your comment reminds me of playing Fallout 2 with a dumb character. While playing you encounter an idiot that says something like: Help save moo-moos! If you have average intelligence or higher you see him as just a dumb guy who needs help with cows. If you play with a dumb character you percieve him as a normal person and have a rational conversation. Being dumb isn't a disadvantage. You just have a different view on liife.

    If I were them, I'd go back and stop Sanji after she escaped from them initially. It's always bugged me that we never found out what the story was with her and the orb.


    Then they could go to the casino and take out their leader. I seem to recall that was some kind of secondary objective. And isn't he after them for fucking up his casino? They could cut that off at the source. Plus, Cork could get them through easily by using his mimicry of the manager's voice to get them through any magic doors. And since they've already been there, they have a decent idea of the layout. Not to mention their earlier selves would provide a good distraction. And while they're at it, they can probably save any slaves from the auction too while they're at it.


    And then they could go back to the cultist house and take care of that mess. And hopefully by defeating Sanji and the casino boss(I forget his name) they may have leveled up a bit and have an easier time against the gargoyles and ghouls and whatever else is there than they would have otherwise. It'd be nice if they could return that gem Albus stole too but I think it would a little too complicated and require precise timing for this party to handle.

      Sam wasn't there and wants to come with them; considering she got away, it's still possible she'll be relevant to the campaign. Aside, they're pulling that 'time is a circle' thing, where there 'would' be 2 parties active at the same time, and clearing their own objectives before "they" get to them would break it.


      They took out the leader (iirc), with farts riddling his dying monologue no less.


      That would likely require them to fight the dragon again, and Albus tried to return the gem. We remember how that went over, right?

      The way I cope is to listen to the audio version to fall asleep every night. It acts as background noise that isn't annoying like white noise. I've probably gone through a few dozen times, at least as far as them getting to the end of the caves then it drops drastically. At this point I've started Twits and Crits to fill the void, but I just prefer H&H so much more.
