Matt absolutely roasts Grog/Travis
Y'know what, the REAL Critical Role curse is not the Mercer Comparison that players inflict upon their DMs. It’s seeing so many people Care and be Invested and make art for a campaign they do not play in.
Like, the worst part about being the DM for my primary friend group is that I get Really Excited about things I have planned for my campaign and I just Can’t Tell Anyone. Because almost all of my friends that are really into D&D are In My Campaign. And the people who are mildly interested in listening to my storytelling aren’t invested enough in it to properly care in that really satisfying way.
I can say “Yeah so the secret behind that Haunted House is [redacted].” and the person listening is just like “oh, damn.” and That’s It. No one is asking in depth questions or begging for more info. Their interest caps out with my self-maintained enthusiasm. Having a show like CR or TAZ or anything else is The Dream because if I got consistently interested questions and, god forbid, ART for my campaign, -outside of the scope of what one of my artistic players can do- I would CRY.
Jester and her wand of smiles :)
Matt “Master of Vests” Mercer and Mica “Knows Where The Bread Is” Burton, hosts of Critter Hug
Seriously imagine saying Laura Bailey, Marisha Ray and Matt Mercer don’t live up to your expectations. I’m not saying they are flawless but my god they are amazing human beings just imagine them not being enough for you, must be a hard life your living if those three disappoint you regularly.
Like if they aren’t enough the rest of us are really fucked then.
I love Artagan, but the scene was so much this lol
Matt: puts tons of effort into realism and details, tries to make his ship warfare, handling, and design as realistic as possible
Also Matt: don’t @ me for historical accuracy this is MY fantasy world
The newest addition to the Critical Role Family looks to be amazing! I can’t wait for Critter Hug to air on… May 4th? (Will there be Star Wars content? Who knows.)
I took a good look at those side effects scrolling down the screen and thought I should share them…
Critter Hug side effects may include: irrational giddiness, nausea, heart burn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea. If you think you may have a medical emergency, call your doctor or 911 immediately.
Critter Hug does not reccomend or endorse any specific tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned by any of our CR family especially Sam Riegel.
Please consult your local Wizard if symptoms progress into all out mania, as the only solution may be a Wish Spell. If your insurance does not cover a Wish Spell, a simple straight jacket and padded cell will suffice. While in said padded cell, learn a new skill!
Like bread baking!
Do you like bread? It’s really easy to make. Just take 5 cups all-purpose flour, a couple tablespoons of yeast, 1 teaspoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, are you paying attention? 2 cups warm-hot water, ¼ cup cooking oil. Put 4 cups of flour, yeast, sugar and salt into large bowl. Pour in hot water and oil and mix until combined - it will be sticky. Add the remaining flour in increments until the goop is no longer sticky.
Knuckle Truckle the goop for about 5 minutes or until the goop is elastic and smooth. Place the goop back into the bowl and cover with your tears until it gains the ability to speak - about ½ hour. Beat it down until it’s lost all of its spirit and divide the dough into two handsome pieces. Fill two oily loaf pans and leave to rise until the goop has reached the rim of your past.
Impulse purchases are a documented side effect of Critter Hug in .025% of test group participants, but only on a grand scale. I’m talkin’ grand like… one of our test subjects straight up left the testing facility and bought the The Grammys. Yeah, like… the Awards Show. No one knows how he did it, but in an interview with Forbes Magazine he said, “I am trapped in an ivory tower of priviledge! No one understands my pain!”
Time lapses, scientifically referred to as “coronal displacement episodes” were largely documented but then they weren’t. And then they were and then they weren’t again. Back and forth, back and forth, the paradoxes romantically danced a temporal tango, until Karen from finance bumped the record player and totally ruined the mood.
001001 010010101 0010100 10101 absolute power corrupts absolutely 01001010101.. 101001001 010010101 00101 “What is the Absolute?
Something that appears to us in fleeting experiences–say through the gentle smile of a beautiful woman, or even through the warm caring smile of a person who may otherwise seem ugly and rude. In such miraculous but extremely fragile moments, another dimension transpires through our reality. As such the Absolute is easily corroded; it slips all too easily through our fingers and must be handled as carefully as a butterfly.”
Cuteness comes were substantially observed, and OMFG they were adorable.
Sudden hallucinations of Mollymauk body pillow were documented in nearly 98% of test subjects.
Mica: “Attention, Critters! Are you suffering from an acute lack of cuteness?”
Matt: “Do you often feel lost in a fog of dread and familiarity?”
Mica: “Are your serotonin molecules… sero-snoozing?”
Matt: “Well, wallow no more, Critters, because we’ve got the prescription for you!”
Both: “Critter Hug!”
Mica: “A new show on Critical Role where Matt and I spotlight artists, developers and businesses from all over the tabletop world.”
Matt: “The first Monday of every month, Mica and I will be delivering a concentrated dose of love and admiration for all the amazing creators and folks in our community and beyond.”
Mica: “Things like indie RPGs—”
Matt: “—DIY dungeon crafters—”
Mica: “—friendly local game stores—”
Matt: “—and much, much more.”
Mica: “So ask a doctor if a monthly prescription for Critter Hug is right for you.”
Dani, in voiceover: “Critter Hug side effects may include irrational giddiness, impulse purchases, time lapses, cuteness comas, and sudden hallucinations of the Mollymauk body pillow.”
Mica: “Have you hugged your Critter today?”
Matt: “Y-you—you okay, Mica?”
JUST LET THE NEIN LOVE YOU
I had a dream that Matt Mercer was my uncle last night and was so disappointed when I woke up
Ashely uses Matt’s own words against him
gotta say (and sorry to Matt Mercer and Marisha Ray) but it’s really comforting to see that adults I look up to don’t automatically know how to do “adult things” like use a fireplace
Just rewatched episode 99 and I don’t know if anyone else has pointed this out but when the cast are making fun of Matts trumpet noise at 3:29:28 Travis says,
“No, Guys I don’t want to fight a fucking Sea Dragon, Dragon Turtle.”
And Matt fucking rolls a die and says “Okay”
It was Travis’ fault lmao
*In reference to Saint Patrick’s Day*
Matt: This is technically light green, guys, by the way, just so you’re aware.
Travis: That’s totes, I saw it.
Matt: Cool. Just making sure we’re all cool on that.
Travis: Plus the green underwear you’re wearing.
Matt: Shh, that’s just for you.
