"I'd like to imagine Brennan walked into the Critical Role offices, slammed his fist down on the desk and said, 'I'll tell you right now, either you put Lou Wilson in Calamity, or I walk!' And then Matt stomped out his cigar into an already crowded ashtray and was like, 'Fine Sweet Cheeks, but if he doesn't deliver it's your ass!'" — Lou Wilson, imagining how he was brought onto ExU ("We Chat With Critical Role's Exandria Unlimited: Calamity Cast" by Gavin Sheehan for Bleeding Cool)

EXU: Calamity said love is the strongest force in the cosmos. That we break and make the world for those we love. That we will ruin ourselves or become our best selves, or both with and through the power of love. That even amidst grief and tragedy there is always a thread of hope pulling everyone through towards that tomorrow. That dreaded, hopeful, destined morning.

“Cerrit looks at the symbol of the Eyes of Avalir on his ring. The eye is sculpted to look down, ever watchful, the eyes of a city in the clouds.
On a 26 insight, you found many threats to the city of Avalir, long years of being exceptional, perceptive, intelligent, clever, your eyes ever peering down, cultists and criminals, even some magisters, some corrupt officials – but on a 26 insight, often ones without friends or connections.
The Eyes of Avalir never looked up.
And the price you paid was that here at the end of things, you still don’t get to hear the laughter of your children in this home, as was the case so many long nights of devotion and service.”
— Brennan Lee Mulligan, Exandria Unlimited: Calamity finale
See what Brennan did there? Brennan said, on a 26 insight, you finally understand what’s wrong with law enforcement: it enforces only downwards. It investigates and hounds the little people and the outcasts, and leaves the corridors of power unchecked. And it’s not a failure of individuals (this cop is corrupt, that one’s incompetent); that would be easily solved with better individuals, individuals like Cerrit, brilliant and honest and devoted. But it’s an institutional failure. The Eyes of Avalir were meant and made to look down, and never up.
Brennan said, y’all thought that because Cerrit’s the only non-magical guy in the Ring of Brass of the floating city of Avalir in the Age of Arcanum, he’s blameless? Think again! Everyone unwittingly contributed to the Calamity. The Leywright trio by hubris, the paladin by zeal and conviction, the fey by love (if Loquatius hadn’t killed the truth about Evandrin to protect Laerryn, she’d have to explain what she’s building in there, and crucial information could have come to light in time), and the cop by being a normal-ass cop, and thus missing every single clue that could prevent this – because every single clue was up above, and the Eyes of Avalir never looked up.
And then Brennan “I came here to hurt people” Lee Mulligan twists the knife and says, Cerrit, this is what you devoted your whole life to, this is what you spent all your energy on, this is why you missed on your own children growing up. For an institutional failure.
And on a 26 insight, here at the end of things, Cerrit finally takes off his badge ring and sets his fucking office on fire.

Ok so we talk a lot about wizard hubris, and I'm a big fan of fuck around and find out, BUT
I think the idea of "the Raven Queen was once a mage in the age of arcanum (who, frankly, some of these other wizards we're seeing in Calamity might have known, if they're older elves) and she managed to ascend to godhood, so what does that mean for our understanding of and relationship to godhood?" is actually really interesting and at the very least explains a lot of the wizard hubris and attitude that leads to someone like Vespin foolishly unleashing the Betrayer Gods and causing the Calamity.
Never mind that once the Raven Queen ascended she clearly thought "wow, that was something NO ONE SHOULD EVER DO AGAIN" (and boy isn't she an interesting figure because of that), the mages in places like Avalir and Aeor are now living with the knowledge that that's possible, that people like them could, in fact, gain the power of gods.
(For what it's worth, I think Purvon's perspective on this is very interesting, as he calls the Raven Queen's ascension "knowledge won by her and her alone" and emphasizes that it made sense for the old god of death to die to truly embody the idea, so the Raven Queen's place was intended all along - an interesting religious perspective!)
But Brennan plays the Arcanum wizards so well with Dean Hollow, who says: "She is still one of us though, is she not? She was one of us. She does remember from whence she came. It is not their world any longer. Why would she not welcome us behind her?"
And I love this because from their perspective it makes sense, even as we can see the seeds of hubris and downfall in it. The wizard hubris is grounded in really understandable world-building, I guess, is all I'm saying.
