    So tried the past 2 days to watch this episode here, but it won't play. So i'm going to watch it on youtube at least then continue the other episodes here. Not sure if anyone else has had this issue. Hopefully its just me. Other then that I have been able to enjoy this series here on the AH site.

    I'm torn about this ending.  For one, the Raja battle was a bit anticlimactic, and I'm really sad now about Bo Jingles (although all of Gus' Yakashashamoo jokes were hysterical).  And I feel like there was too sudden of a split from Vol. 1 to Vol. 2.  I haven't started watching Vol. 2 yet, but I've grown really attached to these characters (including the NPCs), and I will be pretty upset if they just don't show up again because we're no longer in Jackelheart.  Like, I don't wanna lose Na and Father Dori and the Green Alchemist!


    But, in the end, I trust Frank (and Geoff), and I've grown to really love H&H in the 3 weeks that I've been binge-watching it.  So, I'm going to keep an open mind.  Still, even if this wasn't my favorite episode, and I'm still conflicted about the end to this campaign, I would like to say thank you to the H&H cast and crew, because this is an awesome show!

      I share your feelings on the ending.  This feels like a false Raja battle after the party failed to achieve a critical objective  like healing Sanji's father.It further feels like Bo Jingles'  betrayal went much further than the party realized and not every NPC they ended up trusting deserved it.  The  Raja was qualified as a construct makes me think that the real mastermind was never uncovered.


      I think the two main reasons the NPCs are not with the party in Vol.2  are 1) Frank has to let the party evaluate the tomb without him helping them and 2) They can't be used as fodder checking for potential death traps like some might want.

    So, not to nitpick, but why didn't Bo-Jingles/Yakshashamu burn to death in that tribal village when what'shername cast that moon spell on the party? You know the one, Albus' bit of crumpet?

      Now that you mention it....

      Definitely, a plot whole, but maybe since he had fire resistance even after the switch it might not have been able to kill him. You now burn completely to death divided in half equals still alive?

    Don't get me wrong, I totally loved this whole 34ep series, but that being said I felt like the Rahja boss fight was underwhelming and a bit anticlimactic. 


    Still, can't wait for Volume 2 and to see where y'all go from here.

    Whoever animates this episode, I hope they do a series of flashbacks to key points of Volume 1 that show how there were little (and probably not-so-little) hints throughout the story about the twist.

      No, it was just a way to put a bow on the end of the first story. That way they could change characters if they weren't happy with the way their character played. (Ryan being the most vocal about changing his character in the post show.)

      Ok, and I hope that we get the same npc companions again, I wouldn't want them to just disappear. And speaking of them, did they all stay in JakalHeart or did some of them come with them? I imagine at least Quark came with them cuz he really doesn't have anything for him there.

    I kinda find it sad how only Albus, Ryan's character, was trying to save/reform Bo Jingles/Yakshashamoo, Geoff's character. None of the others really seemed too worried about killing Bo. In fact Mogar, Michael's character, was really eager to kill Bo. Even Cork, who Ryan was playing at the time, didn't hesitate to attack Bo. That's probably because, for the party members themselves, Bo was the least liked. Obviously Frank and Geoff have been working on this for a while but the impact kinda fell short. If the other party members had cared more about Bo, then I think the ending could have had more weight. Instead because they all basically hated Bo, they weren't bothered by having to kill him. I'm not saying the ending was horrible, but I definitely feel like it could have been better.

      I think things might have played more differently had Bo Jingles managed to convince them to give him the orb!

      In all honesty, I think that's the downside of having Geoff do that. Geoff is inherently chaotic as a person, so him playing an already chaotic character like Bo Jingles/Yakshashamoo and going just to evil instead wouldn't have the same impact as having someone like Gus/Bor Ealis do that with a Lawful Good to Evil character. It'd be like having Boromir suddenly turn out to be working for Sauron while trying to get Frodo to use the One Ring instead of him breaking from the corruption of the Ring and saving Merry and Pippin by sacrificing himself.

    If they're starting a new campaign (new story/characters), or at least ending it like this, not sure what the point was of Geoff's whole....thing. He could have just chosen to not play a character next Volume.

      In one of the early post shows Geoff said that for the next campaign he would like to co host (or co dm) with Frank as the main villain of the story. 

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

      2 months ago

      I think he is going to play, just as a different character.

      And to be fair, they could have found out at any time. He screwed up their plans a bunch, especially in Rib Cage, he almost got them killed or into major fights. If Bor Ealis had cut him with the dagger instead of knocking him out, or if Mogar had cut him with his sword, the jig would have been up.

      They never investigated him, or tested any character after they passed initial inspection.

    Watching this is like watching (I can't spoiler this twice so Star Wars 7 spoiler warning) SW episode 7 when Han Solo gets killed off. I liked Bo Jingles! The madness was great for the overall story I think. I hope Geoff sticks around too in some capacity

    Loved this ending, was kinda sad to see that Bo Jingles had never been Bo Jingles, but love that Frank as a DM had such a long play planned if Yo Sha Shamoo was never discovered... The one things thats slightly bothering me, didn't the whole group go through a moon magic spell (meant to uncover shapeshifters) when they came across some village? You know the one where Orma had a threesome, Albus fucked the old lady, and Mogar amazed the kids with his cold breath...

    Man, I hope Bojingles didn't get killed off because of the fan response. He was my favorite. But if Geoff actually wanted to do that twist, I guess it added some drama.  

    Now for a little negativity because it has been thirty four episodes. 

    Frank's past experience playing with Geoff and Gus doesn't translate well to show format. He doesn't work to control the conversation at all, instead waiting for complete silence or contributing boring asides and anecdotes that go nowhere. The most frustrating times this happens are when he looks up rules or moves his NPCs around, and the others have to vamp to fill the silence. After finding the answer, he stands there patiently until someone else realizes that the conversation is dead and says "So, anyway" to prompt him. Interrupting during a casual game may be rude, but as a host, it's his job to keep everyone on track and recognize when a joke is petering out.

    Nothing about Frank's style is efficient. There's thirty minutes of useless exposition at the beginning of this episode alone. I'm here for the interactions between Geoff, Griffon, Michael, Ryan, and Gus, not an amateur novel. There are more engaging ways to introduce people to new information, especially in a format built for player contributions. Look at how the Twits and Crits GM managed to build up a world while allowing Funhaus to mess around even more than this crew does. 

    I'm going to stop ranting because I don't want to come off like I hate Heroes and Halfwits. There are a lot of fun moments. It's just that getting to them is sometimes a slog.

      Geoff mentioned on Off Topic (I believe) that he had been discussing with Frank about co-DM'ing with him.  I think killing him off was just a way for them to be able to do that in the next volume without any conflicts.

    Compared to the rest of the series, this episode felt very forced. It was as if the DM decided this was going to happen and the players had no choice.   Also there should have been some more foreshadowing about Ya-Shasha Mu.  Overall the series is still the best thing y'all put out.  Looking forward to what happens next.

      he's a smart player though, like when he singlehandedly killed that guy in the casino (I think, anyway?) by casting heat metal and doing it over and over, so he did massive amounts of damage while everyone else dealt with the other guys. Plus the guy who tried to run down the street while they were dealing with the spymaster. If Geoff was playing as the main final boss, they'd have a much tougher time I think.

      to quote the book under the variant moment rule "Playing on a grid" on page 192 of the PHB it states the following, "Entering a Square. To enter a square, you must have at least 1 square of movement left, even if the square is diagonally adjacent to the square you’re in. (The rule for diagonal movement sacrifices realism for the sake of smooth play. The Dungeon M aster’s Guide provides guidance on using a more realistic approach.)"

      Can't say I play DnD, but even if that were true, is the DM not allowed to add additional rules and restrictions to make play tougher? By what I've seen Frank having done and said throughout the series, it's his game so it's his rules.

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

      did you not read the second  post i did where i quote the book?

      also do not bring up math when in said quote it states that it does sacrifice realism for smooth play.


      but i did find the rule that Frank is using in the DMG on page 252 under the optional rules: diagonals witch states "The Player's Handbook presents a simple method for counting movement and measuring range on a grid: count every square as 5 feet, even if you're moving diagonally. Though this is fast in play, it breaks the laws of geometry and is inaccurate over long distances. This optional rule provides more realism, but it requires more effort during combat. When measuring range or moving diagonally on a grid, the first diagonal square counts as 5 feet, but the second diagonal square counts as 10 feet. This pattern of 5 feet and then 10 feet continues whenever you're counting diagonally, even if you move horizontally or vertically between different bits of diagonal movement. For example, a character might move one square diagonally (5 feet), then three squares straight (15 feet), and then another square diagonally (10 feet) for a total movement of 30 feet."

      so Frank is using the proper rules but i still find it weird that he is using them with players that are not at familiar with the basic rules first
