The in-game start date for the episode was the 20th of Misuthar 836. Sam’s flask says, “Creepy and a crime” Next to a picture of Brian in his Gencon outfit.
Any moments I missed? Feel free to post them here. Is it Thursday yet?
I love Travis, but I hate British Fjord :(
I love Liam/Caleb’s smile when he is told he can keep the book.
Can't wait for Reani's appearance in Brent Weeks' upcoming novel, The Burning White! Not sure how I feel about the Lightbringer being revealed as a brand new character though, since this is the conclusion to the series :/

"PETA would like to know your location"
Karl Karsnark
boring, cringey and catty. Aside from Laura, none of them seem really comfortable with these "rebound" characters (see: Fjord's ever changing accent). A TPK may be for the best and allow them to all pick new characters without any post-VM baggage whatsoever.
the Urban tumbleweed
so, is there a character that the mighty nein has interacted with who ISN'T gay? or is exandria simply inverse proportion to our own earthly material plane?
Cholula Hot Sauce
I mean, I hope that Reani’s moral inflexibility is just a starting point for her character’s evolution, but as it stands I think she’s a poor fit for the Nein. Mica herself is a delight.
Kattryna Maxxwel
Am I the only one who doesn't know who the piss Mica Burton is..? -_-;
cortland davidson
So fjord the pally?
Valerio Coppola
3:18:27 we feel you Matt, we feel you...
Did you just assume... that all elves know about magic... Hmph...

Robert Adams
Fjord is still labeled as a warlock. I think there should be a question mark next to it.
Michael Lawrence
Thats LeVar Burton’s daughter! Thats so rad!

After about 10 months of watching here i am. All of campaign 1 and 2 caught up.
Can someone explain why reani doesn’t have tree stride?
Caradoc g
Fjord is going trans-atlantic right now. Travis is going to have gone Texan again by the end of the campaign 😂
*Born as a half celestial/angel*
*Randomly met some Fey that "just gave her some awesome powers" without reason*
*Has angel guide helping her*
*Talks about killing and defeating evil people and monsters like it's no biggie the whole time aka presents that that is how it is*
*Talks about clearing Dungeons and finding Magical Artifacts again like it is no big Deal*

I am only 1 hour in but I have read the reddit comments about this episode.

Pointing at what I have written here, I like to adress the people stating thing along the following lines on reddit:
"People that say Reani is a MARY SUE are stupid and probably also sexist and racist!!111!!!1!!!!"

I point once more to the top of my comment and woudl like to ask those people......ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED?!

I don't know how much character Micah hidden deeper within REANI but for as far as we know her and how Micah roleplayed Reiane one of the fucking biggest Mary Sues I have seen in a long time.
