    Everyone is talking about how the cast reacted and how crazy they must all feel hearing this, but imagine how Sam feels in particular? He's the one that birthed this. These are his lyrics and I know he worked a lot on the music with JCM as well. How amazing must it be to hear thousands of people singing YOUR words with this kind of energy and passion?

      It's got the same energy as everyone belting out "FIVE GOLD RINGS!" whenever singing the "12 Days of Christmas"
      It's one of those things that's just mandatory.

      I think they also got inspired and got suck in by Yasha stab as if they are giving her a strength boost for the stab and make sure she got a critical roll..

      @Awesome Man part of that reason is because they never in a million years would expect a dnd game with friends would turn into something that would fill theaters and raise millions of dollars for an animated series. Like They are just friends playing their game they way they want to and they are just enjoying it and thats why its such a good show to watch, but for them its like they still think that no one would want to watch it.

      I mean they get genuinely surprised each time the critters do something, they’re always amazed they’re actually popular and if that isn’t the most humble nerd thing ever I don’t know what is

    I love that the crowd split into the harmonies at the end naturally and without any prior planning. Also, it kind of makes me wish there were a "giant, hundreds/thousands of Critters submitted audio" cover of Your Turn to Roll, which I can only assume doesn't exist.

    • AyluhMao

      I think a key part of it is exhaling the vowels, like he's exhaling the "o" in roll and "ri" in critical and it sounds beefier that way methinks. Avatar did the same with the Agni Kai theme.

      If you study audio, one of the biggest separators is whether or not the listener knows what's being said. So groups chanting something you've never heard is always more difficult to understand. If you know the song, it can come through crystal clear. That said, I knew the song so I'm bias, but it was sharp af!

  • UntrainableWizard
    UntrainableWizard 3 years ago +692

    Something amazing about this, for me, is that this isn't a concert, it's a D&D session...
    When I hear the crowd singing along at concerts, it's for songs and music, it's something that everyone expects to happen. But there are times like this in live shows that can be completely random, not always, but most of the time. Hearing hundreds of people singing completely coordinated, and knowing the song, it makes me smile every time. Doesn't matter whether I love or hate the song, it's the reaction from the people running the show, and the crowd themselves, that's what makes it so amazing.
    The high five between Marisha and Liam... Travis and Sam getting their phones out to record the crowd... Matt swinging and singing along, smiling non-stop... Taliesin playing about and just genuinely admiring the crowd... Laura looking over at the crowd, and then just staring at Matt...
    The reactions are beautiful, they are what makes this such an amazing thing to experience.
    Also, because the crowd just straight out has an amazing lot of voices.

    0:16 Actual title: Taliesin Jaffe takes control of entire crowd with his elderich powers.
    Edit: I didn't realize that they split into different harmonies in the end. It had a degree of precision that I'd only expect a hive mind/mind controlled crowd to possess.

    That "Roll the Dice" used to induce chills whenever I saw the intro, reminding me what's at stake. Hearing them sing it like a challenge, it shows me not only what's at stake, but what's possible if you only take that leap. Thank you, Matt and CR.
    Long may he reign
    sincerely, a Critter.

    Across the land, in cities both controlled by the empire and beyond it's reach, thousands suffer in the chains of oppression. They suffer and toil in neverending darkness, knowing nothing but the choking rule of their masters. But through this darkness shines a light, a beacon of hope and freedom. A group of fighters-- freeing slaves from their chains, bringing hope to people who had never deigned to have it. As this light grows, as hope is reignited, a chant goes up. Thousands of voices raised in a thundering chorus. It is a song that chills the blood of those in power. A song that freezes the heart of tyranny. Rebellion is coming. War is on the horizon. The Mighty Nein are coming. Rise up, don't think twice. Put your fate in your hands. Take a chance.
    Roll the dice.

      @Hell Smith and I live in Spain and I sleep all afternoon to be able to be awake at 2AM to see it, so I understand the pain. This was the first time I could watch it live and probably the last in a long time.
