In the past few weeks, we have been inundated with Twitch and YouTube streams of different D&D games, some specifically for Extra Life. While the Wizards of the Coast 48-hour marathon was amusing, there is really no substitute for the amazing talent of Matt Mercer and his friends on Critical Role.
What has me laughing my ass off this morning is Critical Rejects on their second adventure. Everyone there is trying their hardest to be in the moment and just let fly whatever they want to say. The chatroom (also believed to be a dark and malicious entity) interjects often.
If you have not already seen it, you need to watch Vin Diesel play D&D (also with Matt Mercer as DM). He plays his character from The Last Witch Hunter movie. In the past, Vin Diesel has been a very vocal supporter of D&D, I guess he has become a real life icon for the game.
I also thought up a stupid magic item, a bag of unreliable holding, this morning. I will post about it next time, along with a summary of our last Princes of the Apocalypse game session last night.
Lastly, we are organizing our own Extra Life team this year! I will have a separate post about that shortly.
But… what do I know…?
