    Awesome drawing! Interesting episode. Nice with some down time after the battle. I definitely like those parts the best.

    Just curious: When Rob rolled to see if he knew anything about Bright Ones, did you edit a conversation out between the roll and an explanation?

    My guess is that since Rodrigo is GM’ing remotely, that he could just mute himself to everybody but Rob, give him info, and then back to the game.

    By the way, I LOVED when Orem began questioning Ket about Lek. It’s such an authentic D&D experience. The party has traveled across multiple worlds, and now is the first time anybody is like “By the way, should we talk about the dude who sorta started this?”.

    I remember one game where we had been traveling for like two months to reach a mountain, having all kinds of adventures getting there over like four-five sessions. When we finally arrived at the mountain, it took us like fifteen minutes to remember why we were headed there in the first place.

      They’re using Roll20 if I remember correctly. If that’s the case, then Rodrigo can type things out and send messages to individuals through it to specific people. I’ve played games on it in the past, and that was how the DM sent information from Knowledge rolls to people.

      Yes. I edited out all of the “yes… let me…” and then 5 minutes of clackity-clackity as Rodrigo typed on the keyboard to send Rob a message.

        Alright. Thanks for answering!

        Just to be clear, it wasn’t a critique or anything. I was just wondering :)

    Wonderful episode, always love some character moments when we get them. Also good to find out some more about Sekhar. :)

    Can you post a link to Rodrigo’s book? Was trying to bookmark it to buy it but can’t find a link to it…

    I’ll echo others’ comments regarding the backstory and conversations between the party and the NPCs and the characters. From a DMing standpoint, the way Rodrigo dispenses information is nothing short of masterful.
