Narrative Telephone was fun until it hit me like a truck it was symbolic of Eowulf, Astrid, and Caleb
A boy who loses the ability to think for himself
A girl who can never see true again
A boy who loses his heart, never to love again...

I didn’t think I was going to cry about Molly again for at least awhile but I’m at the tarot card explanation scene and just...MY HEART
Honestly just Taliesin talking about Molly and explaining the cards is so cool but so sad
The real treasure here is how dangerous each member of the Conclave was, but in very different ways, and how incredibly difficult that had to have been to pull off with eight players + the entire fanbase watching his every move.
I think that’s what makes CR such an addictive show, because the twists from his end are obviously planned out far in advance and the payoff is so much sweeter because of it. And these are all just examples of one of his evil repertoire.
Matt is a great DM, not just because he creates such wonderful stories, but because he roleplays his villains so carefully and precisely that they feel legitimately deadly and powerful, and that’s a skill that has to be cultivated.
Oh, and the first half of the meeting with the Council at Whitestone when Percy forced her to reveal herself was amazing. All the lying and thinly veiled insults from everyone else was just incredible acting, loved every minute.
During the Vorugal fight, she very intentionally didn’t use her most powerful abilities, because she knew she’d fight VM eventually and didn’t want them to know what she was truly capable of beforehand, which made Meteor such an insane twist.
When she aided them against Vorugal, she made the very calculated decision to reveal her form, appearing weak and diseased, but Matt never specified that she looked diseased when the Conclave first attacked Emon, so maybe the curse was a lie.
Now, she did choose to work with them, which means there was some truth to her portrayal of the situation with Thordak. She needed what he knew, and time was running out to get it before he was too mad/powerful to get it from him alone.
When Raishan first reveals her disguised self and refused to go near the Siphon, we have no choice but to assume (lol) that she was an illusion then too. She was testing VM from the first, seeing if they were trustworthy enough to work with. #CriticalRole #CriticalRoleSpoilers

I have been thinking for actual months why Liam's admission about Caleb's feelings for Jester affected my heart so much and just tonight at 11:50 pm on a Monday is
