Couldn't it have been Fearne?
I fricking hate the moments when all of them don't realize they can just use residuum instead of spell components with a gold cost, like DIAMONDS!
36:55 i heard uncut gems and immediately though of Celeste and Darren lol
1:03:30 I didn't notice this the first time but watch Liam and Marisha. Liam whispers to her "I love you," to which she whispers back "I love you." Both of them exchange hearts and reach out to touch one another but don't. In C1 it was Keyleth (Marisha) saying goodbye to Vax (Liam). Now it's the other way around. To quote Keyleth from C1, "I'm not ready…"
OBVIOUSLY it is up to Marisha and Co. as to what is done with Laudna's character, if she is brought back, her legacy, etc.
But… ever since Orym brought up Keyleth and the Lord and Lady of Whitestone… I cannot help but think of how powerful and thematic it would be for them to bring back Laudna- the woman who perished due to Delilah's schemes, who they saw dead, hanging from a tree in their image…
I wouldn't say it comes full circle but imagine the closure… the emotions, the drama, the meaning… that would be amazing. Marisha's first CR character bringing back this one.
A very intricate, specific, and unlikely dream- especially considering Matt wants to keep past stories where they are so current characters can move in their own stories (respect), but it's fun to consider.

I keep thinking warn esteros he's gonna get fucking jumped
This entire episode was setting up the family dynamic so well.
Imogen, baby of the family…all the mommy issues.
Laundna, the creepy older sister. That one we all know and love.
Fearne, the trouble child. Kelpto, but loveable.
FCG, the youngest of the boys. He just wants everyone to be okay.
Orym, Dad. He's the Dad of the group.
Chet, Grump. He's the Grumpy…Grandpa…Uncle? No idea who he's related to he's just there.
Ashton, Big Brother. He's trying to make sure they all make it through this crappy family vacation.
wasn't there a pinned msg with timestamps?
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil must give us pause…
Wait, couldn't Fearne have just used the silver mirror by facing it towards Otohan and activating it? Then she would have had some shadow assassins after her
Whoops I meant Ashley's line in the intro*
That episode legit broke me into tears. Thank goodness it was for Travis to always keep the party and the viewers more cheerful with his jokes after shit like this happens.
I have faith that Laudna isn't truly gone. As Ashton said, "we'll do whatever it takes" and I believe him.
Ashton, as tough as he looks and is, he will do anything to save those he loves from certain death. When he told Imogen "call Hexum, tell her I'll do anything" that only worsen my tearing up
Its okay, Raise Dead is a 5th level spell! Just get to level 9 in 9 days, 23 hours, and 59 minutes and Laudna will be fine!
Marishas best character by far and liams most dull one by far
Did Sam get that jerry can of his used?? Because if so it definitely has traces of diesel in it.
Don't like who gets revived? Be the cleric 🤣
Hi, i am a big fan of the show!!
I am speaking for iranians, we all love the show and love the worlds and stories that matt and other GMs have created.
Iran has been in mass protest and the women are fighting for their rights to choose if they want to wear hijabs.
I know this might be too much to ask but if you could talk about the situation for even 5-10 seconds at the intro section of the next session it would mean the world to us.
We need to raise awareness, the government is cutting off the internet and are punishing people in silence.
Love you guys, is it Thursday yet!
its funny how the 2 pcs that have died were ones that were known for their resurrections 😅
2:02:40 Matt slowly losing his sanity
Travis killed me with the pants line.
They need orym's boss to come resurrect Marishas' character? Who? Keyleth? Marsha? What a perfect "temporary character" 😀 save yourself
I just had question. Me and my brothers have begun playing D&D but we don't completely no the proper way to play. And i was just wondering if that matters?
I love the performances in this episode so much, fearne's little line of please come back, right trough the jugular. But I also really love orym's goodbye for the second time to his husband, loved everything about this episode.
I love how 8 people talking around a table can bring all of us to tears.
Bad episode for my son to have started on? 🤔😅
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. (Revelation 12:11)
Matt: "Show feets"
Ah yes, a man of culture
1:10:47 laudna dies
The whole fight with Otohan: we’re running, it’s bad.
1:32:00 Poor Travis seems to have been having a moment.
I just clicked on this randomly and holy shit this new intro is absolute trash. This song is awful.
Captain Zandis, how I missed you
Why RTA??? Did I miss something?
I'm a healer and always make sure I got diamonds on me.
fuking hilarious, WHO VOTES FOR ORIN!
Me waiting for the bellz hellz to realise they can use the residuum as a diamond worth 300 gold: ……………………………………………………………………………..
Only in dnd can 1 minute take an hour…
Marisha just showed up looking jaw dropping. Nbd.
There were tears amongst Fearne, Launa, Imogene and moi…acting so good it's real. Great job to all cast and all npc's…PJ of the GreenRAY.
Marisha probably "I'm gonna make a dead character so I can't die"
Then dies anyway
Dnd is fun due to the risk of dying, wasn’t expecting them to casually have diamonds laying around to revive a lot. 2 should have died but it is what it is.
Today has been… An emotional rollercoaster.
Imogen is special because her mom is Ruidusborn as well as herself.
That's 2 generation of Ruidusborn's blood running through her.
7:27 episode start
1:15:23 BREAK STARTS
1:25:25 BREAK ENDS
3:32:00 I wonder why Ashton doesn't use his Pass without a trass ability anymore.
"Who votes for Orim"….Liam laughs harder than everyone… lol
After two years I have finally caught up with the current moment! 😀I don't know what I'm gonna do with myself now… 😕
