    Great episode. I absolutely loved Torq’s reactions and controlled growls during the parents Rivendorn’s snide remarks.

    I love it. Spectacular portrayal of Orem’s parents. It’s great to see Orem struggle between friendship and Eladrin traditionalism. Loved the Trell and Kamis bit at the end!

    Another amazing episode. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Great job everyone!!! One of my favourite parts was when Matthew asked about the white stone and Rodrigo went into great detail about it… how it wasn’t quite like marble, and had some pink undertones, when the question behind the question was “what happens if I punch it real hard?”

      Was waiting to hear Torq ask Randus for healing in advance, because WHAM!!!!!

    Out of all the Episodes of Critical Hit, this is the first one that I couldn’t wait for it to end. Way too much exposition. I have no issue with episodes that are all RP, but for it to be:
    Orem: I’ll go to dinner, and you rest look around.
    Kamis: I’ll go to dinner, and you rest look around.
    Randus: You go to dinner, and we rest look around.
    Torq: You go to dinner, and we rest look around.
    Ket: You go to dinner, and we rest look around.
    Trelle: STOP!!!!!!! EVERYTHING THAT CAN GO WRONG WILL GO WRONG!!! WE ALL NEED TO TALK MORE!!!!
    I’m sorry, but I feel the episode came to a screeching halt. Waiting to hear Orem’s decision about staying or running against the skeletons wasn’t this frustrating. I was literally yelling at the audio for the plot to move on. Rodrigo is good enough that which ever direction the plot actually moves in, the story won’t come to a grinding end, the way this episode did.

      Also, who would know their parents better than Orem and Kamis. What is Trelle doing saying she knows the Rivendorns’ motivations better than their own kids?

      I could not disagree with you more. Plot should take a backseat to character development, because its character that drives plot forward in compelling storytelling. This is especially important in long form storytelling like ongoing comic series or a full length D&D campaign. The plot is there to highlight character growth.

    That was a really good show. Rodrigo provided a wonderful setup again and the players hit it out of the park. Again loving Trelle’s character moments.
    Can’t wait for next week.

    Yes! Luke vs Darth Vader fight – go!

    Why was Orem looking for the pinheads anyway? Just becaurse its his parents doesn’t mean you have to like them.

      Even if you don’t like your parents, there’s a pull to wanting some kind of relationship with them. Orem was looking because he thought they might have been dead.

    A good episode, liked most of the RP other than some of the characters spoiling for a fight that at this point seems unneeded.

    Another great episode finally answering the question “What is wrong with Orem?” and some nice character development for Trelle and Kamis.

    My problem now is that a life time of watching TV tells me that whenever a main character makes a connection with a guest character bad things happen. Will Kamis and Trelle find away to beat the laws of narrative causality or will Will Riker syndrome claim another victim?

    Wow, what an episode. My favorite kind — no combat! This does indeed, as someone said above, address the question of “What the heck is Orem’s problem, anyway?” It’s been nice to see as the show has progressed how much less racist and annoying Orem has become, and now you can clearly see where he learned that original attitude from.
