Since the people in the cages blocked the cold blast by Lorenzo for others in the cages , then shouldn't they have also blocked it for Beau and Molly?

possibly the most brutal player death ive seen. sometimes the CR rating is just a bit more than the group can handle, this guy was obviously that

I have a few issues with several missteps during the fight, but I'm mostly curious about a couple things. Did Mercer ever account for the glaive being a reach weapon and having disadvantage if within 5ft? Also, does a blood hunter have to stay conscious for a blood maledict to stay in effect? I feel like those two blows should've had rather messy calculations, while he rolled them easily.

Oh wait. Any attack that hits while unconcious is a crit and 2 failed death saves.

For the future Matt, if you or anyone hopefully reads this months after it went live. Horses are naturally pack animals, if you just tied that sucker down to your saddle it will follow, you don't need to go slower just give it enough rope but not too much, maybe do a animal handle roll with advantage to see if they tie the horse down properly? Anyway if you tie the extra horses to your saddle it should be good, generally.

...The part of these that is hardest to watch for me are the tactical parts. I don't get people who don't understand the value of tempo. Marissa just wasting her first turn + an important resource trying to stun a Druid. I don't understand why. Stunning is a cute thing you can do when you're already ahead in a fight; in an encounter that really means business, you just need to out-pace the opposing tempo by pumping-out extra attacks. I get it, 'this isn't a wargame', but the principles still apply and you'll lose party members if you don't pull out the stops for hard fights.
President Jyrgunkarrd (7 days ago)
Also, the whole plan just kind of sucked from the get-go, mostly because of the Knot bit. They sacrifice the actions of an entire character to do nothing other than getting (potentially) other characters into the fight... so, in a best case scenario, eventually they go from a 4v7 to a 5v7 that they could've just had right out of the gate. Eventually one argues that they can escalate to better odds, but one must remember that this whole time the party is soaking more damage than they ought to be due to being more badly outnumbered than they ought to be. Which means characters are going to fall. It is going to be next to impossible to climb into odds parity, much less odds supremacy, in this situation. So... why isn't Knot just attacking? He is arguably the highest damage source they have, and he is spending multiple turns contributing 0 damage into a tough encounter. That's utterly ridiculous. They could worry about cages after the slavers are fucking dead.

Sam’s radio play was a hilarious reminder of how incredibly talented these actors all are. They were handed a script out of nowhere, and made it *incredibly* entertaining in only a single attempt. Couldn’t stop myself from cracking up.

Liam doing his monologue is just amazing. The way he developes his character while being all alone at the time is just so well done. Who would think of doing that honestly, and doing it so well. Hands down my favourite character thanks to this 🙌🏻 02:55:40 btw

End result was partly due to flawed party planning. Minorly due to severely flawed information from the visiting player... Significantly due to a powerful of collection of enemies, having very high + on dice for saves. Finally by bad DM They say they want to rearrange brush, for concealment, and then do it in the way that makes sure they won't have enough movement to actually get into battle in a surprise round for an ambush. (and not properly preparing a full ambush round, really just 2 ambush actions of tree being knocked over and the slow spell.) They could have counted out squares and easily seen "We need to move the bushes closer to the kill zone." This costs them a full round of attacks for the non-ranged people. (and didn't even have Nott try a ranged ambush attack) Nott attempting to get in and unlock cages only works if its successful stealth, she gets in, gets some unlocked before there's any combat, then messages Caleb to set off the ambush at that point. (meaning it needed to be done at night when the slaver convoy was not moving. Trying to unlock cages (especially when you don't really have a clue even where the door is) in combat wasted Nott completely for the battle, when she was actually one of the most consistent, decent damage dealers and one of their few range attackers. Party sleeps, then charges down the road ahead of slavers an estimated distance the slavers can travel in a day (leaving the party hours to rest again before battle) then send the owl to spy just close enough to where they can move in about 3 AM They set up a kill zone based on an area of effect spell, and then charge in and arrange themselves so they have 3 heavy hitters all in the area that will easily be hit by a similar size area of effect. And then, Matt should have realized how he screwed the party by having the enemy with a single area effect that could potentially one blast TPK. AREA EFFECT 8d8 could kill half the party even with saves if it maxes. Large area and high area damage from a 9th level (minimum) caster or item effect vs 5 person level 5 party that is also dealing with other level 5+ spellcasters. The first cone of cold essentially beat the party. Might as well have put the party against 2 young dragons with different breath weapons. And Matt had the cleric move out of mele with one person (should have been opportunity attack...) go around another then try to leave mele completely, get opportunity attacked, success MOVEMENT PREVENTED, PUT IT BACK! But Matt didn't put it back, instead put it but in a new advantageous position allowing the cone of cold to hit the 2 who had flanked the cleric (and Nott), without hitting the cleric. Cleric either moves back to the point of origin or both of the people should have gotten their opportunity attacks in sequence of ... She moves 5 ft. opportunity attack 1, then moves more, opportunity attack 2. By the way he did it... that person should have been put back and thus in place to die if the cone of cold is used, preventing it from being used. This also allowed the cleric to cast the dispel which finished off the party. Sorry, but that was just set up to be a TPK The only reason any party members walked was to allow the campaign to continue. Jester/Fjord/(Ashley) captured (prearranged we'll do this to explain the 3 missing for a month... ok) Rescue party should have been DEAD so no rescue ever happens... Game over.

Why don't they ever focus fire? Also, it drives me insane when Matt BEGS them to run and they ignore him and continue attacking instead.

During the intro skit, is marisha not a perfect (voice) reincarnation of Frisky Dingo's, Antagone?? Bonus point for basically reenacting the birth of Cody 2.

So, I love this programme but have never really played D&D before, meaning I don't understand many things. I have a question. I'll try to code it as much as possible but, needless to say, spoilers will probably follow.... SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS When that "thing" happened in this episode when M was knocked unconscious why didn't a 'd saving throw' get to be rolled each time more damage was inflicted? (Like has happened the other times this occurs, e.g, when Beau was getting all that troll acid splattered over her)
Sora Kasturi (12 days ago)
I feel like there's a lot of people missing what actually happened here. It wasn't a matter of bad rolls for the party, it was a matter of 5 lvl 5 player characters with maybe one healing potion's worth of healing to go between them going against a party of 7 equal lvl or higher class NPCs, half of which were capable of healing spells, and at least one of which was twice the party's lvl and capable of casting a spell that could one-hit k.o. one or two of the players and nearly down or severely injure the other 3 on its own. This was a 'someone is going to be killed here' encounter; it just wasn't the guest. And it being that kind of encounter is fine. It makes a more compelling narrative, the party needed more direction and an actual enemy at this point I feel, and every party needs a kick in the face from time to time. I enjoyed the whole episode and it was very well done. And to anyone who got hung up on the rogue NPC's sneak attack, that would've altered Molly's fate by one round *at best*.

Everyone hating on Ashley, hey guys people make mistakes. Either they don’t know the risks or take it knowing the risks. Even if she could have done something to save molly in the end it happened their is no changing that. Just take what you get. On the bright side, we’re getting a new character. Edit: It’s funny that I talk about now cause like this was three months ago.
Eric LeCarde (14 days ago)
SPOILERS The party was doomed the second they decided to take on the Iron Shepherds. Doesn't matter that Nott and Keg weren't involved in the fight. If Lorenzo is what I think he is, they don't really stand a chance in a straight up fight. You need tragedy to strike every so often, keeps things compelling and interesting. Can't wait to see Taliesin make his return, love that guy.

Zionpohl (15 days ago)
I'm guessing the whole "flanking bonus" that Molly keeps using is a remnant of their port from Pathfinder? Is it just me or does it seem a little too strong for 5e to allow just everyone to use what is essentially the Pack Tactics feature?
Zionpohl (4 days ago)
I was unaware of that optional rule, thanks for pointing that out. I geuss as long as you make sure, the players are more often than not fighting against equal numbers it's fine.
Pollen Applebee (14 days ago)
It's an optional D&D rule on page 251 of the DMG. Keep in mind that monsters can use this against the players as well, so it doesn't give the bonus to the players alone.

Quinn's Quest (20 days ago)
The whole time they were planning this ambush I kept thinking... why wouldn't you just take them in their sleep?? Nott could poison the horses water/food with mage hand. Caleb could charm whomever was on lookout. And then they could use the oil/tinderbox/throw torches to set fire to the camp. Beau could litter the site with ball bearings. It would be just straight pandemonium and would put the odds far more in their favor...

Too Late Nate (24 days ago)
I'm so confused, wouldn't Lorenzo light on fire when doused in the oil from Nott when hit from caleb's fireball? Or did I miss something? I really enjoy the series and everything, but hopefully it's kind of a wake up call for the group. Since now they've seen someone keel over and die, maybe they'll realize there's consequences for poor planning/execution. Showing that Matt's not pulling punches, though you can tell that because Ashly really screwed the group over in the combat phase, Matt allowed the team to retreat. Otherwise Caleb was potential paste smeared onto the ground. Also, Molly seemed to not really do any damage throughout the campaign, like he *started* strong, but constantly fell behind even Beau in damage output. Though I haven't looked at the class that closely.
They are actually a normal sized party for a change... oh wait we got guests. Matt is playing on hard mode as always.

Vials of oil on a tight place in the road, Fireball, or FIrebolt to light the oil. Use the acid on the locks to damage them to the point they can be broken easily. Range attacks after Slow is cast, with bruisers into melee combat, and cross the fingers.

Now, I don't support the people who sent her hate, but man, I have to say. When you're called in to be the substitute tank for a game because your friends had a baby irl/a work trip, that is NOT the time to go all method actor, not do the irl favor you are there to do, and deeply affect a campaign that isn't yours.

Kyle D (1 month ago)
I think Lorenzo might be the best villain Matt has created since Raishan. He is legitimately terrifying. The fact that we've had a legitimate PC death is what I like about this campaign. Vox Machina always seemed to have things under control: there's a reason Marisha thought they were gods. As much as i love the C1 characters, the Mighty Nein is so much more human than VM.
