So did the players make their own characters, or did Matt make them to choose from?

No offense but I already hate Jester, chaotic good characters are always so annoying.

Does anyone know if the fact that Starosta is the czech term for Mayor is a coincidence, or intentional?

Just finished watching campaign 1 for the second time so I'm back here for the second viewing of campaign 2 (whilst still keeping up to date). Cannot get enough of these amazing people and their dynamic.

Raddo Neko (1 day ago)
2:16:19 You just look at the two sides of the table and it’s amazing seeing the group dynamic. One side is writing and the other side is just mesmerized.

Watching it through for a 2nd time to give some time before i catch up again and it just occurred to me... what was Laura's gift to Taliesin? I thought we would find out after the break :P
Christine Near (3 days ago)
Man, it’s great to hear the first time they are doing character voices because Notts voice changed, Liam is struggling to get away from the Vax voice, Travis trying to steer away from grog and well...Talisin who knows what his accent was for Molly
Rexatron 2005 (3 days ago)

It's funny rewatching, and hearing an auzzie twang to Nott, and Caleb without the German
Ethan Perry (4 days ago)
2:31:54 - and only a couple hours into the first episode, Sam spawns the joke that will remain for the entire campaign xD

"I'd hate it if I smelled that bad and someone didn't tell me" Molly: *grabs perfume bottle* You should put on some of this Caleb...*looks at camera* smelling like an adventure isn't easy, but you can certainly try...with CR.
Liam seems so excluded.

Explosive ? (9 days ago)
I would hope Matt knows what a falchion is—
tristonanan (9 days ago)
I'm rewatching this since it's been almost a year, and it's amazing to see just how far they've all come. And even how their voices changed over the course of the episodes as they grew into them and became more comfortable in their new characters. These players are all so good, and they each bring so much to the table. Not to mention how easy Matt makes it to feel like you're in the world, which definitely makes it easier to do. So proud of them all.

For a short moment, according to Matt Mercer, Fjord became a Half-Elk.

Its funny how much more british sounding nott is in this episode! Notts definitely progressively gotten drunker and crazier through the episodes...
Taylor Norton (1 day ago)
Finnan Tobin your right XD
Finnan Tobin (2 days ago)
He doesn't sound British at all here, he sounds Australian.
Eyyy that Skyrim soundtrack tho
Kelvin Masinag (11 days ago)
first role of the new campaign @35:31
Merak Spielman (11 days ago)
Just finished campaign 1, starting campaign 2. For me the most interesting thing is going to be watching how they play new characters. It was hard to tell how much of the previous season was role-playing vs player personality.
garbage gal (10 days ago)
starting the year off right i see
HandattheHelm (12 days ago)
New watcher here, so probably a stupid question, but anyone know what song was playing from 1:45:21 to 1:49:06, during the first fanart spotlight? It's really pretty. Edit: managed to look it up, it's "Twin Elms" from the Pillars of Eternity soundtrack!
Lucid Psycho (11 days ago)
No stupid questions here my friend. Enjoy watching.

Van Goth (12 days ago)
I yearn for Matts description and vocal skill
David Beppler (11 days ago)
Step 1. Confidence. Step 2. Charisma. Step 3. Captive audience. Now you are the GM.
Sophia Ellis (13 days ago)
I love how cynical Caleb is all the tome
Steven Donaldson (13 days ago)
I'm glad they made some of them sit separately. Tallison and Marisha then Liam and Laura. All of their touchy feely stuff last campaign was really weirding me out. When I first started watching, I thought the relationship dynamics were totally different than reality

Andrew Peck (13 days ago)
Matt’s description of the whole circus gave me goose bumps multiple times.
Ommallaredpanda (13 days ago)
Should be "Critical ROLL" Bet that's original ;)
Sam Phoenix (13 days ago)
This is the first episode I'm watching and so far Molly is my favourite!
PJ Demigod (14 days ago)
This is honestly a fantasy Guardians of the Galaxy. Actually, they have a lot of MCU humor. Beau: "Did you get a nice watch or a tankard?" Fjord: "They didn't have watches." Beau: "Shit. Did you get a tankard?"
Electro Savage (14 days ago)
Isnt the monk infected?
Kibokun24601 (14 days ago)
Liam looked like Cyborg009 in the opening with the shirt and sweater cape combo XD
Girban Bhattacharjee (14 days ago)
There they talk in the tavern and that which sounds louder to me than their (thoroughly enjoyable) conversation is "Around the Fire" from Skyrim. I love that piece. As a DM, it's my go-to track for tavern ambience. Critical Role's choice of music is simply great.

UnboundChainz (15 days ago)
Shame I am only watching now, the blue tiefling is already my favorite character
Zach Payne (15 days ago)
I hate to be a stickler, but like it's impossible to play a stringed instrument upside down. you would need to put devote so much fidelity of your hand to keep the bow in contact with the string, that you wouldn't have much less to make it sound great musically. yeah it's a fun fantasy story Mat Merc made for us to enjoy, and I'm loving it, but my inner violinist couldn't help but comment
David Beppler (11 days ago)
Get gooder. Anything can be done with talent. (also magic) remember the fiddle was playing itself while he pulled a chain.
