    Best solicitation ever.

    Very annoying adplug. Not the cause: the length, placement, and tangenting speech.

      By the colon, I mean to say that the cause supported was not annoying, the other items mentioned were.

        I should’ve just used a comma.

    I want to start a recurring donation, but sadly paypal won’t let me do that unless I add a credit card :-(

    The episode sounds truncated around 12:01. Is the ad being played over part of the podcast?

      There are many portions of the recording that are edited, if you know where to listen. Most of it is nothing but setup, with the occasional senseless side conversation edited out, as well as nearly every instance where Rob and I bond over Justin Beiber.

        I would definitely pay for a podcast of Rob and Matthew crushing on Justin Beiber.

          The mere thought of Rob and Matthew bonding openly in any way seems alien to me……

    98 hours of podcasts and only one ad? Keep em coming. Please have Matthew put out his official “reference count” for the ad. I GOTTA know how many were crammed in there.

    Would be nice to have a picture (labeled) of all the characters, so we get a better idea of what we’re looking at.

    Great episode, and I can’t wait to hear more of them (I particularly can’t wait to find out what significance these dreams have). It was before this episode came out, but I started a monthly donation. There are other D&D podcasts out there that aren’t half as funny or interesting as Critical Hit. I sincerely think CH is right up there with the Penny Arcade D&D podcasts.

    Love the podcast. However, the ad in the middle of everything was annoying, funny but very annoying. I think I liked evil Smith more than the original Smith.

    So what’s next, Evil Dream Orrem’s college Professor? or maybe the professor from Shalai that he met?

      or maybe….Evil dream Thoney!

    Love the ad promo! Bit long but hilarious.

    I love Critical Hit, I really do. I enjoy everything about it. Aside from this ad that was placed right in the middle of the episode.

    If you want to promote the subscription thing, I would say keep it towards the beginning of the show. Make it the first thing we hear, don’t interrupt the Podcast and stop it dead with a 5-6 minuet long PSA. Keep it short, sweet, and to the point. Let us know that you are looking for donations, that you can donate here, what you can donate, and what you promise to do with those donations.

    Also, adding in a possible premium version of Critical Hit that is ad free would possibly get a decent buyin.

    Just want to echo the general consensus: Love the podcast, really don’t mind the advertising, but really did NOT like having it interrupt the episode. Please just keep them at the beginning or the end. This ad was actually quite humorous and I did enjoy listening to it, but I wished it hadn’t just started out of nowhere.

    I just heard the point where they discuss the type of voice this NPC has (the handsome man). I totally cracked up at Rodrigo’s voicing of the Neverwinter Nights brash male (I think)!! Woot!

      yup, good catch

      • June 24, 2011 at 6:35 pm — Reply

        Ohhh, there’s the other person who caught the NWN voice joke.

        Also, Rob’s “Handle in the butt doesn’t feel good” followed by Rodrigo’s “…good to… know?” was pure comedy gold.

    Just finished this episode. It was good. I take it the Duergar and prisoner are Albrect and 7OW, respectively. The photos made no sense until I came to this conclusion. What are the corner markers denoting? Also, where are they from, I may want some of my own.
