Since this show got an actual plot it's been fantastic. I particularly like how the in-game plot links up with the real-world plot. Best episode so far, in my opinion. Keep up the good work!

Show became more serious for the last two episodes. More plot & less jokes. I like it. Well, not the "less jokes" part, but overall it's better this way.

This is easily the show with the highest overall quality on The Escapist. It began well but I didn't expect such a degree of progression! Well done!

TL;DW "Kids......don't do steroids"

But great episode. You guys put an outstanding amount of work into those LARP sections. Can't wait for more.

That was wonderful! I love how the plot is much stronger. You made some great jokes, put some drama inbetween the players, and gave the elf frind guy more reason to help the princess beat the bad guy. I can't wait to see what happens next! Keep it up!

a Cyclops top spy?

How does that work?
Well they only said it was his top spy, not that he was actually any good at spying.
Maybe he doesn't even have any other spies at all?

Good work, especially on the rick montage.
Those silly elves and their magic addiction they should really try some group therapy...

yeah or it could be like his spy master or something else that doesnt need to physically do the spying

as for the drink im amazed that no one else called the potion pusher out on being the bad guy since it is a favorite formula for bad guys especially casters just look at snow white and the poison apple

I noticed that the wizard didn't have his glowing eyes AND the cyclops had NO effects makup.
Re: cyclops - wasn't that the idea? He was in the basement, not the fantasy world. I love the idea of the DM actually getting up on his chair to play the part!

Amazing episode, funny, but also at points so serious, it felt i was watching a drama or something like that. Loved that episode :D!
But I really do hate when someone gets unbelievably overpowered in a D&D game, it just takes all the fun out of the game... But at least the elf had the decency to apologize, not like some real-life people who I've played with.
also, the cyclops make-up was epic.

It was only okay, until the very end where it tied up to a larger plot and that allowed me to relax and enjoy

Good to wach something like this after a long serious roleplaying session. Keep up the good work. There was a bigger rpg event in my country this saturday and due to the lack of air vent and the temperature we had to use energy drinks and a lot of coffe to withstand. In the end, after 10 hours of playing we simply fell to asleep. Good show, every episode bring more hope and something worth to follow.

It WAS funny to see him with a great big eye taped to his face. :D
I love how his person-eyes were closed. I bet they were making rude gestures at him down on the table.

This is very well done! And absolutely the sort of thing The Escapist should be supporting, rather than the shitty Jimquisition...
