Talking Crit: The Ominous March

Tragedy is something terrible happening to you, comedy is something terrible happening to someone else.  The first 40 minutes of Episode 109 was everything that quote was meant to represent.  Yes, there was a cubic dong to be awe struck by, but the love potion number nine fiasco was everything that a D&D game should be.  It was made better by having a live audience to play off that energy.  It was one of the best episodes Critical Role has made, and the audience is a big part of that.  As we move forward, we get closer to the finale.  It is just on the horizon, and we are getting closer.  This leads us into our Question of the Week, how much time do we have left?

The Question of the Week this week looks at the sand dial for Vox Machina?  How much time do we have left before the story arc finished for good?  There are a few factors that can change the answer, does Ashley Johnson come back for the episode?  Will trekking through the Titan Corpse take too long?  Or are we looking at a run to the finish line?  Give a vote and let us know what you think will happen.

However it happens, the end is nigh.

Our first shout out this week goes to Vincent Parras, and his recreation of this iconic scene from the live show.  Sam Riegel got a WWE style pop out of the crowd that will never be forgotten.  Each player done up as their character is just awesome to see.  Of course, the crotch lightning.  It brings a blush to the cheeks, and a smile to the face, because it captures that emotion we all had.  The surprise and shock of it all was hilarious, and that’s how we all see Scanlan presenting his cubic talents.  Amazing job Vincent, this will go down in Critter history.

The second shout out goes to Liz Doodlez and these amazing caricatures of the Vox Machina crew.  These are cute, adorable, and you can see them being made into pins, or vinyl stickers.  This needs to decorate our sweaters, bags, and note books.  The quality is top of the line, and it calls your attention to them immediately.  Liz did an amazing job, and we hope to see the rest of the crew out there soon.  Give Liz a follow and let her know how awesome her art is.  Thank you, these are amazing.

That is it for this week, we will see you Thursday night while live tweeting the show.  Give a follow to Vincent and Liz, their art is amazing, and your twitter feed will be a better place with the colourful pieces they put out into the world.  This may be the last session this Thursday, how are you going to handle the end of the Vox Machina story?  Let us know in the comments below.
