Ep. 30. The Crystal Kingdom - Chapter Two

| 11 comments

Our heroes make their way into Lucas' floating, crystallized lab, and face off against their deadliest foe yet. Will they thrive under the pressure of an apocalyptic time limit? Or will they waste too much time just standing around, debating the names of members of the band U2? Magnus gets caught fibbing. Taako learns about a Grandpa. Merle gets Touched by an Angel.

Love the show. Heart Heart

Never did I ever imagine I would listen to a D&D podcast, but you guys make me laugh out loud on a regular basis.

Sorry to bore you with a tech issue, but.

I use VLC and have a wee problem. Episodes come in order of name. So it looks like Ep 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20 21, etc

It makes is a bit tough to listen to several episodes (I don't have the rolls).

Could you change the episode name sot 001, 002, 003, etc?

Much appreciated.

Great show...

... but I was a little disappointed about the "if-we-die-no-donations" meta-gaming. Stay in character, nubs.

um...

You might be listening to the wrong podcast if breaking character is your hang up.

um... no

Receiving donations should not take priority over story-telling; that's the whole point of the game, why bother playing otherwise? As of yet, they haven't exactly broken character as speaking outside the game is a very real necessity at times, and their anachronisms are dealt with rather handily by a skilled DM. Saying "Oh we better not try to use our abilities because we might die and lose money" is total bs. Merle was right on the mark calling the others honeys.

The Play is the Thing

We all play for different reasons. One of the charms of this group is their disregard of the fourth wall. A time honored tradition that shines with the Marx Brothers and carries on down through Deadpool. Keep up the good work and pay no attention to the man behind the DM screen.

Lyrics to that song?

What are the lyrics to the synthetic's song? It's so cool, but I really can't parse the lyrics all that well. (Griffin, I love that you're putting so much into post production on these. I know that's time consuming.)

Lyrics!

I absolutely love these little musical additions.

From what I can make out, the lyrics are

'Pulled from my home inside a cloud;
Lost to the dark I drift alone.
Now I [I just can't decipher this line] my shroud, ever to reign upon my throne; Here in my crystal kingdom.'

I'm happy this all exists. Thanks!!
Chester

Adding to this

Listening to the song, I'm pretty sure the third line is "Now I'm returned beyond the shroud"

This podcast is reaching next level!

The little music interludes take it from amazing to sublime! Well done Family Mac.

How does going to the

How does going to the bathroom work in these anti magic space suits?
Is there a waste collection pouch or do you have to get all the way out of the suit?
If the latter, what happens if you pee on the crystals?

Love the show!
