    Eight minutes in, and I think I’m laughing harder than Rob was. Of course, now my coworkers are even more convinced that I’m utterly insane.

    I love long episodes, and I really appreciate the frustrating effort that was put into making sure this episode went out (it kept crashing while being edited). Thanks!

    Lizard Wizard! Would that be your One, Stephen? Glad to come back from vacation to find such incredible content!

      You would need to go back and listen to Dramatis Personae to find the origin of The Lizard Wizard.

        Critical Hit historian indeed. I was wondering if anyone else would bring that one up.

        don’t listen to Stephen!

        Always good advice…

    Outstanding job by Stephen and Adriana, playing out that early conversation without breaking character. Was Adriana the only one (besides Rodrigo of course) who knew about the relationship going in to this episode, or is that something that was discussed previously off-air? Because if it was as much a surprise to Stephen as it was to the rest of us, he deserves some kind of acting award!

    Trelle: “She’s my ex.”
    Orem: “Ex what?”
    T: “Well, we were a couple.”
    O: “Yeah, a couple of traveling companions, I understand that….OH!”

    This interaction made me laugh as hard as I did during “Doesn’t it fall out of the treetops??”
    Loved that the Elven granola could have been cooked this whole time too – well done, all, well done!

      Nothing was discussed with me prior to that in game revelation…

        Which revelation, that Orem’s sister was/is involved with a female Elf, or that elven granola could be cooked? ;)

    Love this episode. I don’t want to repeat what has already been said. Though I will add as I might have before that listening to critical hit is like a audiobook. The imagery that all of you use is great. All of you make it hard to keep a straight face when I’m at work but thank god I have to drive around so much and can listen and laugh along. Keep up the good work and this is one of the reason why I donate my money to a worthy cause.

    Fantastic!!! Thank you Stephen for perservering and getting this episode out to all of us eager listeners. The roleplaying in this one is exceptional! Randus rocks in combat and Trelle is a ‘super’ addition to the team. As always Matthew/Torq delivers the goods and Ket and Orem magic it up. You guys just keep getting better and better!

    Good luck with the server move.

    I was cackling like a certifiably insane person. This really was a great way to ease the strain of the extra work caused by the Monday holiday. Thanks guys!

    (PS: I’m glad that Rob is back, and Rodrigo is not turning into the next Joss Whedon by killing all the characters I love.)

    Matthew, as one of the 9 people who understand your wrestling references, every time you mention Torq doing the Shawn Michaels Kip-up, I get “Sexy Boy” stuck in my head.. and I hear it sung in the music stylings of Torq.

    I was in a crowded street, waiting for a friend to arrive when I heard Ket scream “it can be cooked!!??” I laughed so hard that almost everyone around me turned to see what was wrong with me… it was awesome!
    I loved every minute of this episode. Thank you so much guys!

    Just a reminder to the Matthew/Torq: Now that you are paragon tier, crits with your axe will add 2[W].

    I can’t believe Randus used the word “pop-o-matic” outside of the the board game Trouble. That’s amazing.

    Fantasti Episode. You guys get better and better at roleplaying, Stephen and Adriana scene was Amazing. I laughed all episode. Expecially at Orem’s reaction to Trelle revelation and Ket’s laughter.
    Also Randus gets to be more and more awesome in combat! Becoming a robot did wonders to his career :D.

    I had to come to the site to say what everyone else is saying… I was cracking up in my car on the way to work this morning at “ex what?” and “a couple of traveling companions…” Thank you, all of you, for starting my day with the best laugh I’ve had in a long time.

    I think this is one of the best episodes that I have listened to so far. Rodrigo is still one of my favorite DM’s as he is such a fantastic storyteller; and the interactions between everyone is also equally fantastic! The revelation, as everyone here stated, was pretty hilarious!!! I do have a question about Adriana; is she tuning in via Skype as with Matthew?
