Great episode, I can't wait to see where we end up. I was kind of hoping to see the Necromancer or Thuy but one of the new places would be cool too. In regards to the Patreon video, I really enjoy the difficulty level, it really keeps things interesting and also keeps the game fresh. I can easily see this show going way past 100 episodes.

@DansGaming I know someone else mentioned it already but if you do go with something like two levels in Cleric and three levels in Bard you still will be the extra spell slots. You would end up only being able to cast level one Cleric spells and level one/two Bard spells however you could use a level three spell slot to pump up a Cure Wounds spell for example. There is a table in the PHB on PG. 165 that shows you how many slots you get when multiclassing.

@itmeJP You did a great job with Jubilant Black Gale, sometimes you don't enough credit so just wanted to share this with you. I look forward to you having a character you can talk with. I think a Wizard or a Rogue would be a lot of fun. Don't forget about the Healer feat again as a possible choice and the feature a previous poster mentioned with the Rogue to make it a bonus option. I can't wait to see the character creation videos, I hope they go up this weekend.

@AdamKoebel I know D&D isn't your favorite game but the way you run this is so fun to watch, I hope it keeps going for a long time. Keep up the good work and can't wait for new lore. Also any chance Berg can get something new after time passes, make him level 6, give him a new proficiency, stat bump or language?

Max I know you're not on here but I love that the throw away character Berg has lasted so long, the randomness of the game is what makes this so interesting. Your RP with Berg is great and can't wait to see more with him.

Tuesday can't come soon enough!

Great episode. I like how the ending was handled. Carry on was said so many times by Adam that it made me think Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son.

"Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more"

@itmeJP While not the most effective class, i like what Divination Wizard could do with the two d20 that can be inserted in to any possible roll. These could be used to make some crazy things happen even outside of combat. After watching :itmejpking: for many years i feel like this could be a good match for him so he can do his shenanigan stuff when he feels like things get stale. Inserting that nat 1 to someones roll in RP situation is guaranteed to be golden. :itmejpgmleft::itmejpgmlol::itmejphax:

If used to get people up to 1 HP every turn the Healer feat can turn in to a death wish. Being able to get a person back to the fight every turn without being restricted by spell slots ends up meaning that the Healer needs to go down before anyone else can go down. And after the Healer goes down... double tap for a long nap. Someone with Healing Word for Bonus Action and Healer Feat for Action to get two people up every turn is the best way to get targeted by everything. :wink:

This would actually be a ton of fun to watch on stream. Sorry Adam actually the Dragon doesn't hit.

Cmon you think Adam is that mean? :smiling_imp:


(Typoko) #66

Surely not. Adam is a decent man and he would just use creatures that poison the characters so that even when they are brought up from 0 HP they stay paralyzed for an hour. :wink: That snake poison... all the rage. Everyone uses it to get high and thus have it handy to cover their blades with it. :adamgm::adamhorse:

I personally really hope to see an arcane trickster or an Eldritch Knight. Especially if they end up in the Court of Wands. I think both of those archetypes are super interesting and really wanna see them in play for more than the little bit of insanity Cohh did in WM.


(AdamKoebel) #68

Yeah, I think Berg will probably get some cool downtime stuff. I'll have to talk to Max about how long its been and go from there. I think much of his time won't be necessarily adventuring, but training and being reborn in the Tower's shadow.

Also, thank you! I quite like D&D, even when it's being a bit ridiculous. It's a pleasure to run for such engaged players and such a great audience. :adamwizard:

JP tweeted that he is recording a Patreon video at 9PM EST. Maybe this is what I've been looking forward to all week :smiley:


(Twitch: eyearcana) #70

Me too, I saw that. I hope it goes up before midnight EST, that's probably as late as I can stay up before I fall asleep.


(Olf_Himself) #71

Dan said on stream they were recording character creation today so maybe.


(putridcheese) #72

Carry on my wayward son. There'll be peace when you are done. Lay you're weary head to rest. Don't you cry no more.

I wonder where the story is going now.


(Twitch: eyearcana) #73

Great song. (Character limit)


(Twitch: eyearcana) #74

It's almost here boys.


(DansGaming) #75

The Dark Knight Rises


(Yojobo) #76

Maybe not Level 6 with how by-the-book you've been handling exp, but maybe a magic item or special ability like what happened with the Elf-Crystal-Thingy. Perhaps... MAGIC TATTOOS?!


(Twitch: eyearcana) #77

Chills How do I make JPs internet upload faster?


(phobiarg) #78

Ahh you're killing me @DansGaming


(Twitch: eyearcana) #79

It's up now, I won't spoil anything but all I'll say is holy shit @DansGaming. :astonished:


(Twitch: uzling) #80

WORD! CoS Season 3 will be EPIC


(Might be Captain Marvel) #81

Thanks for a great season 2! Season 3 already started on a high note with that patreon video. Can't wait :heart:


(Olf_Himself) #82

I love everything about JP's character. I love the concept of Dan's character but slightly disappointed that it's another pure Cleric. Even though they are very good I kinda wanted to see a new class.
