Nobody here is going to care, but for some reason I can't stop going back to see how Critical Role's new campaign is going. Bros. Somebody help me stop doing this to myself. The third campaign is so bad. The party had this world-ending event that, for all the characters knew, worked, and which pretty much obviously did work to unleash a tarasque-esque entity that's going to devour the gods. And then Matt split the party which wouldn't have been so bad for maybe a few episodes except this shit lasted for a whole seven for just ONE half of the party to fuck around with goats and a backstory plot shoehorned in with no relevance or urgency towards anything. Bad enough that had that god damn annoying nigger join in, now the latest episode is going spawn another 7+/- episodes of dicking around with more bullshit that doesn't count towards anything with more guest stars I couldn't give a shit about. Almost immediately they shoved in some whore who decided the character to play would be an obnoxious, edgy goth modern-day high-schooler that is entirely outside the scale of a fantasy setting. Returning to "bad enough", it was bad enough with Taliesin's cringe-inducing edgy character, now there's a second one that's even worse. And then all of this gave me flashbacks to the Asian whore they had in months ago. Who, on the one hand was an awful presence, and on the other gave the impression of being an important aspect of Fearne's parents' connection to dark fey who were suppose to have intense interest in this whole event but who has, along with her superiors, never shown up again. A whole plot device left to die. Which also reminds me of how the new party bizarrely decided to be down with Fearne's hag grandmother who brainwashed her and butchers people to keep their insides as trophies, as well as Laudna's infatuation with a child-torturing psychopath that the rest of the party ENCOURAGES her to fuck.6 posts and 2 image replies omitted.

>oh man this vampire woman who has an invested interest in your survival so you can bring her back to life is totally evil we need to stop her and make you more vulnerable
<but hey, this dude who tortures children and conducts biological experiments to create wmd's is totally okay
I cannot understand how much the inconsistencies keep piling on and there being no in-world consequences when there should be, because Matt's too busy shoving in 'member berries. God damn, yo.
