    I KNEW IT! I knew it was him! They said he was 'elf-like', he uses a sword, he used divine magic, he teleports, and was mistaken for a woman.
    But why would he do that? I feel like my childhood hero just turned to the dark side. I feel personally betrayed. It can't be like this. D:

    Obstreperous, I want to see Wil show up on stage at PAX at as climax where they track down the guy. Like, they corner him, initiative's rolled...and out walks Wil, dice in hand.

    What about Bless? Bless 3 creatures of your choice within 30’ (target one additional creature for each slot level above 1st) that then get to add 1d4 to their attack and saving throws for the duration (1 minute/10 rounds), or until concentration is broken. Step 1: bless Omin, Viari, and Binwin. Step 2: hopefully don’t die. Step 3: profit.

    I hope they can cut up the pax show and put it out like this.

    They just leave the pax show on twitch to watch whenever you want. No reason to cut it up. You can watch live or whenever you want afterwards.

    Been a long time since I watched the old series. I don't get what Aeofel whispered to Viari on his way out. What's the reference there?

    Chris Perkins and WotC have put all of the Acq. Inc. live shows in podcast form. It's called Dungeon Delve. It's great.

    I actually went back and looked at that, then saw it was many hours of podcasts and was hoping for a quicker answer. :)

    Please make another season immediately. I feel like I'm talking to a shooter who has taken hostages: You have all the power! And I respect that. You can do whatever you like. But... think of the children.

    That was a pretty awesome reveal.

    How long before the PAX game gets turned into a video?

    It'll be live on twitch while it happens and also in select theaters across the country with Fathom Events. You can buy tickets here: http://www.fathomevents.com/event/dungeons-and-dragons

    I'm heavily considering going since I'm so invested in this show lol. Plus it'll be like a mini PAX opposite of PAX East for me!

    Way back in the day when they did podcasts Will fell into an acid pool with greased sides (this was in the days before *banf*!) As he put it in a later episode "rolling 19 after 19" wasn't enough to get out and he turned "How does 19 work for ya?" into a catchphrase.

    Thanks, I went back and relistened to that, but the catchphrase must've started later. Really great stuff.

    @Nightslyr as soon as it's aired on twitch it will stay there as a VOD to watch. So basically next weekend it will be up and should be there anytime you want afterwards.

    No doubt, but I live across the country, am too poor to travel, and use a wheelchair. Streaming/video is, literally, my only option.

    ...should I just hand in my nerd badge at this point?

    To me, DnD isn't "DnD" unless there's at least one person who is learning the game for the first time. There has to be a dichotomy between old schoolers and new people. For this little pearl: you're welcome.

    And Rothfuss isn't a new people, that old crank.

  • NicNic Registered User regular
    Bring the party to a near-TPK situation only to break out by the skin of their teeth for the finale at PAX? Chris Perkins sure knows how to ply his craft.

    Overall this series with Patrick Rothfuss has been very entertaining.

    i'm guessing it'll be a bit of time. Pat Rothfuss wrote on his blog that he traveled to Seattle for a couple of days to shoot the latest Acq Inc series.

    sounds like they needed to schedule a set of days for it in advance.

    like all good things in life, this is worth waiting for :)

    (i've also started reading Pat's really good books to tide me over, so there's that)

    It's always been my favorite part of PAX East when I go.

    Even though I know I could watch it online from home, it still manages to be the best part of the trip every time.

    To be fair, getting a bunch of super busy people together in one place whom do not live in said place together is pretty tricky, and I'm sure the filming and subsequent editing is also pretty tricky, not to mention ole perkins needs time to let the brainfroth simmer and percolate between sessions. BUT TO BE UNFAIR I EXPECT MAGIC AND GODLIKE SPEED FROM YOU ALL!
