    Please make this a regular thing. I'd prefer it to be weekly, but bi-weekly would be alright considering the time investment and how busy everyone is. Monthly is too long for people to stay invested in the story I think.

    Boo! Ryan's Natural 20 should've ignored disadvantage! (32 minutes in) Other than that, this is thoroughly enjoyable.

    Wooo Iv been a DM for the last 5 years I can't wait to see how you guys fuck up the story. <3


    If the players don't have fun then the DM failed.

    I've been waiting for this since you guys dropped hints on twitter last month. Really loving the show! but not so much the DM, hate seeing any DM that isn't prepared, makes things too sluggish. Can't wait for the real campaign to start tho. Great job, guys!

      Is Michael rolling a 1d12 instead of a 1d20? It looks like it, but I can't be completely sure. haha

      Well, this is a pre-made one, I think the one for the real campaign is one he wrote if I remember correctly? So it should be better.

      Seems like its more of the effect of using a pre made module. So comfort/preparedness levels are about right for what they are doing. Otherwise i would agree.

    3 hours isn't a lot in terms of D&D. I say keep it at about this length. It'd be more annoying cutting it down to say an hour and just releasing it slowly over the week. Just give it at one full swoop. Set looks damn nice also

  • Scare FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    So, you guys might want to look into Rollplay for a second tabletop rpg show that does a lot of things very well. It's a product of the streamer itmeJP, and imo does a lot of things even better than critical role.

    Ignoring that, I would look into instead of character sheets giving the players tablets and using Roll20app for character sheets. This site is incredibly useful for TTRPGs, and this will let you reduce time heavily by removing the need to count up modifiers constantly, and lets you do a lot of digital integration, such as displaying rolls easily, special effects for crits, and an easy, dynamic battle grid you can show.

    As for viewing purposes: Split it into hour segments with 5 minute breaks, film it in 3-4 hour chunks but release these hour long segments as videos. Even if you structure the show as being 4 hour sessions of filming, and even if you mark the vod clearly, people will never just learn that. Shorter than this means that action is broken up too much and you'll get awkward cuts, longer than this and people will

    Finally, I udnerstand this is part of the purpose of this test/ pilot episode, but make sure everyone on the show knows the system pretty well, especially their own class features. This will speed things up tremendously, keep the events smoother, and prevent people from making mistakes that you'll want to go back and fix. This is a downside to using D&D as the system, as it can be very complex with the numbers of systems and stats involved.

    For learning D&D in particular, wizards can likely help you directly. In particular look out for Christopher Perkins and Jeremy Crawford:

    I have wanted this since the early days of podcast when Geoff and Griffon got mad at Gus for missing their dnd session.

    This is the best thing to happen. ever. of all time.

    I'm super excited about this, but I wish they picked a better prefab campaign to start. Granted I'm only 45minutes in but still. I'd love to see them with their own characters and the freedom to actually do things

      Gavin would be too impatient, Jack too nitpicky, and while Burnie would be fun to see but we all know he would never have time to sit down and play lol.

    3 hours and 20 minutes. I'm going to have to watch this in 'parts' as that's way too long for a single episode. It's also why I don't watch criticle role, those episodes are even longer.

  • BvR_Fan

    Okay initial impressions before getting too far in: I like the set-up, I like the editing, but three hours is WAY too much for any one episode of anything (at least on a regular basis). These would probably work better split into two or three 60-90 minute episodes.
    Sorry if that comes off as negative, but hey, I know you guys are looking for feedback, so there it is.

    • KM3R FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      They stated at the beginning that this was a one off, as in this episode will have the full story and not broken up. So they will have it broken down for the non test/pilot episode. Probably 40-60 minutes long each I'm guessing.

      I honestly prefer it to be out in one 3 hour episode, I can pause it and come back if I want to, but I don't have to wait a day, or possibly even more to keep watching.
