- Maybe I'm just really slow but I joined the diggers right after the show premiered, just thinking it was a general what did you think of this weeks episode community chat, but tonight I actually found the Titans Grave Diggers videos on youtube and I'm blown away. You guys are great. Totally going to watch next week's live stream.
I do think however there might be a voice missing from your commentary. It's obvious that you're all experienced gamers and it's great to hear from that point of view. But the three of you have made a point about how certain aspects of the show, and the actual game, are very much geared to the first time player. And I wonder if there might be a way that might be better represented in your weekly commentary. Weather it's adding a fourth person that can bring out that aspect or finding community questions that the three of you might not have thought about because as gamers your minds just don't think about those things anymore. I think what I'm trying to get at is something that will bridge the gap in opinions between lifelong gamers and the quindecennial noob, such as myself.
Before Titansgrave, and through that finding Critical Role on Geek & Sundry's twitch channel, I'd had no experience in RPG's. Never played, never even seen a game. But now I'm hooked. I'm going to get the book and find some people to play with. But until I do and official become a gamer I'm watching Titansgrave as an average person consuming entertainment. I think you're missing the point of view of those average people and what brings them back week after week to watch the show. Just something to think about.
ok that's my little mini rant. thanks for making it to the endJul 13, 2015
- Thank you Megan!
I love hearing about people getting into gaming. Titansgrave is a wonderful way to draw people into the hobby.
A new gamer q&a is a really good idea. Maybe we can work that in (time permitting)Jul 13, 2015
- Eric, on the subject of Lemey's damage. I think this raises the possibility that she may not be able to carry a child. That would be a very serious challenge to not just to one's body image, but also one's gender identification. Unlike the ancient Egyptians, most people through history, like Genghis Khan, have viewed children as their legacy.

- Nice! A seriously depressing thought, but very true. The extent of damage Lemley is, as of yet, unrevealed and could be just as psychological as physical.
Putting on my psychoanalyst hat for a moment, could her wild shifts in mood (silly to ultra-violent) be attributed to coping mechanisms?
(This is the stuff I eat up as a GM and as a player btw)
