    That final fight was .. really anticlimatic, but the character work on Duck and Ned were great, lots of good interactions.

    I hated everything about the Aubrey stuff and it was really hard for me to listen to someone roleplaying a teenager wanted to leave home to be a stage magician and being sad their parents didn't support it as something I should relateable and not incredibly silly within the realm of our world and not some high fantasy universe.

    I don't think this particular system lends itself well to entertaining fights from a listener perspective, since a lot of the rules are built around how fragile the PCs are and using luck dice to stave off death and I think they are ignoring luck completely and also none of those three characters will die prematurely.

    I think I am liking things in amnesty more, but yes I thought it was hilarious/sad that they tried to sell her going out to be a...stage magician seriously.

    I love how they retired the David Sims Grew Up In England bit but they also recorded like 6 months of episodes beforehand so it’ll still be here forever.

    The final fight going the way it did seemed down to those absurdly good rolls they were getting. Like geeze, their luck was off the charts during that scene.

    I really like amnesty, but without starting up the whole Travis thing, the character itself makes no sense

    She's a tough goth fire magician who.... literally just starts giggling when she sees a fluffy cat?

    Or nearly gets everyone killed because she wants to touch the shiny thing?

    He's playing her like she's 6, and it's really really unnerving

    besides having the same name, these characters are played too cutely for my liking and feel more like an assemblage of quirks than a person to me

    an on-the-spot "uh......... I'm actually playing brothers" feels like the most calvin of balls for a player to pull in your tabletop game, let alone your popular actual play

    Each of the players on FatT have their own sort of personal aesthetic they bring to the show, and I look at what they bring in two flavors: the ideas they bring to the world, and the ideas they bring to how they play their character

    like Janine, I like what she brings to the worlds, but I don't especially love how she plays her characters, same with Andi

    Ali and Keith are sort of the opposite for me, I like their characterizations but not so much what they do for worldbuilding

    and then I am all-in on Jack and Art's particular brands of bullshit, at all times

    Once I realized the theatre kid thing, I realized that I knew someone who is exactly Travis' character.

    Like, bubbly and kind of ditzy, but also I met her while doing a production of Titus Andronicus so she had her hair dyed black and was wearing a leather jacket every day.

    TAZ Amnesty stuff:
    It'd be really interesting to me if they ended up framing Audrey as kind of a spoiled kid who made a bad decision, abandoning her future to do something really dumb and thinking of herself as this persecuted victim with parents who don't understand when she isn't, but I'm positive that won't happen.

    But I also think that acting like a parent saying "hey that's dangerous and risky for a number of reasons" should not be portrayed as a crazy or oppressive thing to say

    Honestly if a kid I was guardian over showed interest in street magic, I'd support them. Not running away--being successful at street magic requires a lot of hard work, study, and practice and if they're my kid I want them to have a good roof over their head and proper nutrition and shit. I'd definitely buy them books and give them plenty of opportunity and encouragement to practice and shit, though.

    There's really nothing in the scene that implies her parents aren't supportive of her interests, they just don't want her to run away and literally become a homeless teen trying to do street magic and it feels like we're supposed to relate to her over it.

    The part that really gets me is how the reveal of the twins is used as a cool reveal at the end of the episode where Jack pulls a fast one to gain an advantage, but then five minutes into the next episode he basically trips on his face and completely wastes the opportunity.

    I am having a real rough time continuing because his character bothers me so much
