    FOUR HOURS of Critical Hit? Awesome, but please tell me you aren’t taking off the next month to make up for it.

      OK. I will not tell you that…. You’ll just have to wait until next week for the news…

    Good grief this was rough. Those rolls. Man, I wonder how they’re going to pull this off.

    I was convinced this would be a higher level version of the Tower. Randis would run off and come back to find Orem missing a leg and Ket’s facial hair shaved clean off.

    Great episode. Loved the length. I couldn’t sustain this every week, but a four hour combat episode definitely makes leveling in Legion go by faster.

      That sounds horrifying… except for the part where afterward, Randus has to build Ket a bionic goatee. Which will probably shoot rockets and poisonous spikes on command.

    This was a nerve-wracking, soul-crushing, exhausting and extremely entertaining episode. I don’t know how are they going to get out of that place anymore! They could really use some critical hits on their favor on the next encounters

    So I got a kick from Matthew’s little song:

    Sparkle turn, Sparkle turn
    She’s been frozen and now she’s burned
    Set on fire and all that stuff —

    But he never finished it! Clearly it needs another line that rhymes with “stuff.” Maybe “Thirty damage was good enough?”

      Maybe “Sparkle’s turn was really rough?”

      Most of my songs in that particular meter end with “ONE SATURDAY MORNING!”

    Just found your podcast. I am really enjoying the adventure thus far. Currently I am on episode 14 “Making Do”.

      Welcome aboard, Matthew. If you’re anything like me, you may spend months getting caught up on old episodes and wanting to talk about them, then being frustrated you weren’t around when everyone else was first listening and chatting. Feel free to bring your reactions to the newest post like you did here, I’d be really interested to see how your experience goes. The story just keeps getting bigger and better from there.
