I love how everyone comes into the stage all hyped up and badass...and then Mercer just walks in like:"Oh hi everyone!"
@flamingkitten1 I mean he's freaking Matt Mercer, he doesnt need to do anything to be a badass.
@flamingkitten1 I doubt that. He's a dm.
I suspect this is how they've shown up to some of their normal games and he's just used to this
@flamingkitten1 yet Matt always gets the loudest applause.
Liam's entrance onto the stage gave me chills. I love the way he casts Wall of Fire and that it's become one of his most signature spells.
I still come back to this episode just for that. Chills!!
It is a really old fotball sign for ”going down the middle”…
haha I read this, and then the same thing still happened even tho I was there!
Super late to this comment, but just had to point out the absolute pimp stride on his way out as well. Smooth from every pore.
I love Caleb's affinity for Fire magic. As an added bonus, his new personalised spell(Widogast's Web of Fire) is a VERY interesting spell that makes a lot of sense for Caleb as a character, as it is effectively a Fireball that cannot hit friendlies. I can imagine as he was designing it, he thought "Nobody else I care for will die in my flames"
YO TO THE PERSON AT 4:25 WHO YELLED "LORD HAVE MERCER"
THANK YOU FOR BEING ALIVE
@Troglodytarum If your idea of fun is ruining a show for other people please just stay home. Thanks.
I’m just waiting for one of the replies to say “your welcome”
Honestly that was great
I thought he said "more math mercer" 'xD oops
nothing was better than the entire audience singing your turn to role in the beginning
@prideling Is there a recording of that?
Saw the vid of it on Twitter, It was so well dont if i didnt know better i would have bet real cash it was rehearsed, but NO that is just HOW GOOD CRITTER ARE!
I see your intro song and I will raise you one simultaneous "Uk'otoa"
If this doesn’t happen every time they do a live show...I would be very sad 😥 Cause I wanna sing with everyone
2:08 Travis in the background looking at Laura walk on stage is ALMOST as cute as Laura herself.
then they kissed
Me: fallen on ground
I was half convinced that Matt was gonna kill Beau and Jester during the first hour of a live show. It was amazing.
@Skeptical Caveman Since they can't bite while holding someone in their mouths Remorhazes are ambushers by nature and wouldn't care to stick around to kill everything, harrying powerful adventuring parties and recover to live another day. Beau would have been carried away and devoured if Nott hadn't stepped in, leaving her dead with nothing short of a True Resurrection spell to bring her back.
I mean Remorhaz is basically a monstrous centipede that radiates fire. It's supposed to be a fight with deadly consequences.
@oathkeeper65 I doubt more than one character would have died.
I really doubt Matt would dragged her away from the battlefield. The burrowing was mostly for dramatic effect.
@Skeptical Caveman you're right, but Beau's body was about to get dragged away underground. No body, no ressurection for a very, very long time.
"Please don't kill me on a live show"
Matt: *Proceeds to tell everyone that it burrows underground*
I never understood why Talisen didn't dress up for this
Liam said a really easy way to remember how to spell Taliesin's name. Ta-LIE-SIN.
what do you mean? he had the best costume
he came dressed as Talisen Jaffe
I still can't get over Laura and Travis having a little husband wife kiss on stage.
Jeremiah Sutheim I know right? It’s even better when you know he gets such a kick out of cute stuff. When he was voicing Mori in Ouran Highschool Host Club, there was a lot of outtakes where he just burst out laughing at how cute Honi was.
Of course, the Brian/Sam embrace will cause me to buy thousands of dollars worth of eye bleach...
Jeremiah Sutheim Holy Shit I love that!
You can kind of see Travis's face when Laura comes onstage, and he has the most ridiculous heart eyes expression @ 2:08
omegagilgamesh it’s adorable, they are both adorable. Travis is a hunk
Are we just going to ignore fjord wrestling the momma worm with the clutch strength checks?
@Crem2057 To be fair, I’m pretty sure that would all be fixed with a healing spell, and his orc constitution probably helped as well.
Plus it shows how much he cares about Beau, that he went through so much pain to save her.
“NOT MY FIRST MATE YOU BITCH!!!”
"It's like being back with Avantika!"
Gotta love that s t r e t c h i n g damage
@Kathy Lennerds Oh same, I expected him to have dislocated arms for sure, shame he didn't RP that out but it totally could've happened. I guess the golgi tendon reflex came in handy for him.
Honestlyy the fucking body horror of him feeling his fucking ligaments tear gave me all sorts of gross shivers
I've said it before and will say it again. If I was bleeding out on the battlefield and needed a clutch save, the one guy I'd want in my party is Sam Riegel.
Sam has this odd way of using spells that is highly effective, but not always as their intended purpose. He is a true bard for out-of-the-box thinking.
Well you’d either be saved or die in annoyed amusement.
E x p l o s i v e
A r r o w
Yooo, what about Fjord and Caleb fishing the worm back out? That was so sick
Was mvp of that fight. Saves Beau and Caduceus with what amounts to half a class. Maybe less!
ford was a mighty rod to calebs fisherman
Right? I mean I know there were a lot of great moments, but Fjord had two huge clutch moments while being unable to use magic. Not even an honorable mention?
I feel the person yelling "Thats you're wife!" at 7:41
I feel like 7:40 is a better time stamp for that line
@Firan25 no, it’s just funny
I get it. But is matt supposed to take it easy on her because he's married to her?
if that where the case he would have had Keyleth survive her Goldfish incident without needing to use Revive.
"I'm a mammoth I don't care" This needs to be a T Shirt.
Stellermeerkat don’t forget it’s holding a giant lollipop with its trunk.
I was thinking of "Fuck it, I'm a mammoth" for a shirt
@Stellermeerkat i too was disappointed that she turned into a brown mammoth instead of a blue one. Think Laura would have been even more enthusiastic as she went.
Pity that it only lasts an hour, i could picture them Mammothing around and wolf-stomping.
A sparkly blue Mammoth with pink tusks. With or without worm viscera.
i got wool for days, son.
I like Brian backing away from Sam at first, then realizing he's not getting out of it and just going in for the hug xD
"Fuck it, Im a mammoth. I dont care" Words to live by. I love Laura so much
I was lucky enough to be there, and this actually brought tears to my eyes, reliving the experience of for the first time watching the show with other people who gasped, screamed, laughed, and groaned when I did. And for the first time, singing the theme song with others instead of just to myself. If there's any way I can get a ticket next year I'm going back.
We didnt even know we were living through the good old days. I was there too, it was magical.
Don't forget Fjord whipping the Momma Remorhaz and pulling it out with Caleb's help using Bigby's Hand right before Nott saves Beau with Phantasmal Force. Beautiful teamwork from those three and some insane luck from Travis to pull the creature out just enough.
@Kurtis Letterman Plus the cats paw just fits him better
Oh shoot!!!! I've been trying to figure out what cats ire is for days!!!!! Thank you for being smarter and more knowledgeable, because I've been trying to figure out what they meant when he first cast it and said "we discussed" for so long!!
Fjord's TRUE POWER was unleashed here. Ukatova was holding him back
Bman Yeah, he didn't want to step on scanlans style with copying bigbys hand.
Sam: We're getting kinda good at this, I don't think anyone's gonna die
Matt: Allow me to introduce myself
"And then... It burrows underground"
Sam and Travis: Shock
Laura and Marisha: On their feet in horror
Caleb: Fucking laughs
Until she came out on stage I didn't know it was possible to fall in love with Laura all over again! Travis really rolled a nat 20 there :D
5:37 you can almost see the loading wheel as Laura tries to process this new development
For those that don't know, the name of the 'worm' is Remorhaz.
A pretty cool and creative monster for arctic encounters to you GMs all around
I mean it doesn't sound too bad 🤷
*looks it up*
Talos's Remorhaz is the worst
@Frog with Sunglasses riiight. I can just hear those two words in my head when I read em lol. Saying centipede or anything like that sounds too sciencey huh. And the video uses Worm so I guess it's okay
@Peter Senior Yes, I know that
I only edited the text to say worm, without apostrophes, because it sounded too "Well, actually" for my taste
@Optimal Jo Keep the faith undying, and the rest follows suit
Laura has entirely too much fun as a raging mammoth. :-)
@TheSilverPhoenix100 I'm sorry, but VEX and UPTIGHT?? Are you sure about that lol
Next Campaign id love to see her play a fighter or barbarian and really round out her characters from regal and uptight Vex, to cute and bubbly Jester, to pissed hulking death machine
You can never has too much fun as a raging mammoth
The "lord have mercer" was so good and I miss that from campaign 1.
5:49 Nott: I don't think anyone is gonna die this session.
7:41 Also Nott: I take back what I said before. Someone's gonna die.
I love how they all have their quirky intro walk ins and then Matt walks on with a wave, a slight bow, and a motion to the rest of the cast. Reminds me of a 1800's magician or something along those lines.
7:25 he is just sipping on the players tears while they all struggle Matthew Mercer more like Murder Mercer Imma right?
@SoftGirl #lordhaveMercer more like.
Maurice Khliefat #mercerhavemercy
This episode maybe wasn’t the most RP heavy, but it was perilous and emotional all the same. I’m very happy to have caught it live due to it airing 2 hours earlier than usual.
7:13 The reactions OH MY GAWD
My favorite part is 7:40
"THATS YOUR WIFE"
And he just sips lol.
You honestly should have added Fjord being an absolute unit in here.
I loved when they all chanted Fjord’s name
My god I love their outfitts xd freaking Gothic rock and then Luara is a sweet Lolita AND THEN SAM. SAM IS JUST. BEAUTY
Can we all just agree that Sam is actually iconic?
Man really? No love for my boy Fjord? He was so clutch that episode.
Lauras scream when the worm burrows underground with Beau haunts me
Matt looked so good with eyeliner
I have never seen anyone as extra as Sam and I love him for it lol.
I like how you did this video in the same style you did last year's GenCon video. Like a nice little throwback from your evolution of presentation to now.
Everyone else: Cool entrance.
Jester Bias: JESTER!!!
Be me. Is into goths. Is bi. Entire cast is goth. Me: I see this as an absolute win!
I think he misread 'Goth' for 'Moth'
Holy SHIT I am being you. Im into Goth AND BI
I am imagining the black guys behind the white girl meme but with the CR cast lol
I know right?! XD
let me tell you it was way louder in that theatre than the audio lets on
Hold on, did Laura choose her dice to match her aesthetic
she that crazy.
She said on Talks that she only used purple dice because of the whole theme.
This shouldn't be surprising.
You know Liam, the seasoned actor, and Travis, and the ex football player, just live for these live shows.
9:30 Laura Bailey is a Beast.
i love how everyone else walked out on stage and looked and acted badass and then matt comes on and goes :D
-Matthew, please, have mercy.
-Does this looks like the face of mercy?
Jester being Stampy the mammoth is the cutest
imagine sending this to the crew in 2015
right before they started streaming
"oh yeah thousands of people are gonna watch your game on a stage"
Sam PLEASE I can only take SO MUCH *FLAMBOYANCE!!*
They are all rocking the goth outfits, with the exception of Sam lol
@Alex The Axolotl No he heard "goth" and thought it meant "golden moth" lol
M Rod Sam misheard and thought they said moth
No one told Talisen to dress up
Idk "Flamboyant Maiyan God" seems better than Goth.
Goth Marisha looks amazing!
She should dress like that every day!
I was going to say that her lip color was EVERYTHING I LIVE FOR.
6:00 We all know Matt slept on the couch that night.
Wow did not notice Sam's glowing bulge the first time I saw that entrance and now I can't stop seeing it
It's a weird flex, but it IS Sam.
How do you manage to miss it?
“Fuck it, I’m a mammoth, I don’t care.”
-Laura Bailey, 2019.
Just me that dubbled over at Lauras expression for like 4 seconds before she realises what just happend when Caleb turns Jester into a mammoth 😂
Everyone: “I loved ____ part it was so cool/funny”
Me: I DIDNT WANT TO SEE BRIAN IN A MORPH SUIT OH GOD HIS JUNCK YOU CAN SEE THE OUTLINES OH DEAR GOD!
I know right, wherever Ashley was watching from at that moment she must've really been enjoying the show. The Mighty Nein made her fiancee wear a bizarre costume and she loved every minute of it.
Everyone goes to conventions to see Reigel's Costume live.
Someone should have told Brian about dance belts
Good of Taliesin to share all his clothes with the rest of the cast
Sam went from 'I'm so glad you taught me this game!' in the first campaign to being a tactical MASTER in this one!
Left my boy fjord out in the cold huh? He was the MAN on this mountain !!! Man on a mission , sheeit
when the monster burrowed under ground I jumped out of my chair! at home!
You can hear the audio being forced into deep equalization as the noise levels of the cheering explodes when Sam walks into the light.
This was the exact moment I fell for Liam's character concept.
Travis gushing over his wife at 2:10 dawwww those two are serious relationship goals. And dame they all really be pulling off the goth style, diggin Travis and Matt with guyliner
Seriously. I love how much those two are in love with each other. Like we've seen happy couples together, but rarely do we see a married couple just so openly in love still.
Should've implemented the moments where Fjord makes ALL of his saves. I'm pretty damn new to DnD, but making all of those strength saves was something special.
I wish I never stopped playing in 1999!! This is awesome!!
Everyone: ok the outfit-theme for this one is [x]!
Liam: did you say cosplay?
Sam: did you say ~Fabulous~?
Someday, I WILL save up enough to show up to one of the live shows. : )
Aww when Mercer entered the stage, Marisha was definitely expecting a kiss~
I watch this video, and the whole "Beau Goes Unconscious" section is hilarious. Serious af, but hilarious.
What makes it hilarious? Marisha Ray, after being told the Mama Worm "burrows underground," just does this shimmy, then disappears under the table for a bit.
I just gotta know: Why is no-one talking about this!? Lol
Laura screaming always gets me
I'm waiting for one of these where Talisen actually dresses up, and looks "normal", lol
I only just noticed Travis in the background XD
Fuckin’.........they’re so cute.
Thx for pointing that out, I missed it too.
Please don't kill me at a live show.
And then it burrows
Travis is such a mood. All the time
Needs the audience singing and the howls!
After all this time, I finally get the joke about Brian's outfit
And to think... all of this is because of a birthday party.
Who’s birthday?! Is that why they’re dressed as goths?! It’s a great look but I’m very confused (probably because of Sam).
I am brand new to this whole scene, like literally I have never played D&D and i have never seen Critical Role until like 2 days ago. So... has anyone made these stories into like animated series??
Wait. Was Sam the only one that didn’t raid Taliesin’s closet for this convention?
The whole crowd saying ukatoa was cool
At first I though Sam was gonna come out as a belly dancer with those wings.
Sam is the Ferris Bueller of the group
"Wow, guys! We're getting really good at this!! I bet no one dies..." Famous last words - he should get beaten up by Jester for that!!
Such a bad ass episode. Everybody always brings their A game to the live shows.
Sam just made me die. I cannot take this much xDD
who else thought the bag was Laura's new dice collection?
Resident DM girlfriend re-evaluating her life choices, beginning with the "girlfriend" part.
Wow Laura in this is..... Just.... WOW
I miss these nerds so much.
5:31 BEST IDEA EVER!!!!!
@RubySage718 Laura: O_O...Did...he just say what I think he said?
Laura: LOLZ I'm about to turn into a mammoth LOLZ
Draco wolf I just love it that it takes Laura a few seconds to react that she is a mammoth now.
Matt is a God. Idgaf what anyone says. I would give my first born just to sit at that table! ❤
2:18 aww that's adorable
This whole sequence was so clutch. I feel like Vox Machina hit harder, but M9 has more flexibility and utility, even if their plans go down the drain sometimes
So are we gonna ignore how Brian has just become Bruno by using Sticky Fingers?
Liam just looks like a 2019 Vax
If Sam was an animal, he would be a paradise bird...
Sure, and when I went running around yelling "my trunk is everywhere" I got arrested for public indecency. Pfft.
