    Caduceus: "This situation requires honesty, verbal finesse, tact, and probably someone with Arcane knowledge. Beau you're coming with me"

    Me: what

    Beau: *immediately starts lying to the powerful wizard*

    Me: Jesus Christ

    To be fair, Beau told a very generous interpretation of the truth, instead of outright lying.

    Matt definitely should have made her roll, though, because there was definitely some level of deception going on.

    Having seen what my room mate does when he dj's, and then seeing what some bars pay their dj's to do. There can be a vast difference in actual effort. My roomie pretty much makes mashups on the fly by mixing songs and he works the room on the fly seeing what the crowd is into and changes it up as needs be. But a LOT of djs that get paid to do so just walk in and play a spotify playlist. I didn't really believe it till I saw i for myself.

    Why would you put in more effort than they are willing to pay you?

    In the case of my roomie, it's not his primary employment and he just loves dj'ing. He loves it when folks come up to him and compliment him on how much more they like when he works than the spotify using folks folks. But I dunno, for 250 for six hours of work it seems like you'd want at least a little mixing.

    Scanlan: "Be honest?! We've never done that, how do you even do that"

    Yeah the decision to bring Beau along as his +1 to talk to the Arch Mage in Nicodranas was just bonkers.

    It got better and worked out in the end, but listening to Beau start fucking lying right off the bat was like "you have chosen...poorly"

    My friend is playing a Shadowrun character who cannot lie (or, at least, can't lie well) because his totem requires that he tells the truth. But the totem is fine with lies of omission as long as he doesn't state knowing falsehoods. This is problematic, because he's the face of the group when my character isn't around. It's been interesting to see how the player works around this crippling flaw.

    When my character (who is a Hacker/Face) is around, we usually end up playing "Truth Cop, Lie Cop", and tag team social encounters. I tell blatant lies while he tells just enough of the truth to confuse our marks.

    It really pains me how much people on the interet are getting angry at Marisha for this, as if she is ruining everything

    They got mad at her for Key'leth being TOO honest in S1!

    She roleplays the hell out of her characters, Beau is an angry person who never lets her guard down and is a self described "Disaster lesbian" incapable of making good decisions, and Marisha nails the character she created. Keyleth was a naive good person who was willing to stand against an endless horde of undead with 2 spell slots left while her party ran away because "Every one of them we take down is another person who doesn't get killed by them", and yet the "fans" have a huge subset that are just like a pit of barking dogs endlessly giving the player shit for her character's suboptimal decisions (as to actual poor spell choices, as Marisha said, you try playing a character with 200+ spells available in front of an audience of thousands and knock it out of the park)

    Not lying isn't the most crippling flaw. All that's important is word choice and making sure the person you're trying to manipulate only hears what you wanted them to hear and not necessarily realize what the actual truth is.

    Marisha is probably the best actual character actor in the bunch in terms of consistency, with Sam and Travis close seconds. And yeah, the shit she gets is from people who don't understand characters instead of playing the game. Marisha isn't playing D&D, she's playing a character and is amazingly good at it.
