The volume of the screaming really isn't all that important, is it?
That... I never said anything about the volume. I'm talking about the one-sidedness.

Like you never hear anime fans claiming D&D ruined a fantasy anime or harassing people in their fandoms for playing D&D.

I had to disable Alexa voice ordering and password protect ordering every other way (to at least add in an extra step). Not enough impulse control among any of us in the household!
I think I've ordered all of 3 things on Amazon. My wife and daughter on the other hand have multiple packages coming literally most days of the week and 1 on the rest. It's a very rare day that nothing arrives.

I know very little about Critical Role and even less about the show. I wouldn't know about the show at all if not for this thread.

I do have Prime though.

What is the show about?

What is the show about?
A D&D party (Gnome Bard, Gnome Cleric, Goliath Barbarian, Half-Elf Rogue, Half-Elf Ranger, Half-Wlf Druid, and a Human Fighter) going on D&D Adventures. Somewhat serious, somewhat tongue in cheek.

It's basically a retelling of an arch that happened in their campign before they started streamming, and one of the archs of their first campaign.

Well, Percy is a Fighter with a custom Gunslinger subclass (since he was a Gunslinger when their home game was using Pathfinder).

Thanks, thats one where the translation always tricks me. The words for arc and arch translate to the same word in portuguese so I often get confused.
I figured it was a linguistic thing. I just always feel like a bit of a tool correcting the English of someone who's obviously quite fluent, especially when I've got at best a few words in any other languages.

Both languages get the two words from the same root, if that's any consolation.

I'd argue that the only reasonable assumption is that a Kickstarter creator will do what they said in the Kickstarter they'd do. If we started holding creators to assumptions (reasonable or otherwise) rather than the things they actually promised, we end up in a very strange place.
That's fair and if it was merely a case of people backing with different assumptions about how it was distributed I think I (and many other people) would be a lot more ok with the situation. At that point i would have said they could have been more clear but not put them at fault.

I think the much bigger issue is them using the free trial to cover their promise of getting the first season free. That's the point where I would draw the line of they did something wrong. It also makes me less likely to be charitable to any misunderstanding earlier in the process which is why i brought up what i felt could be a reasonable assumption and point of confusion.
 






I mean... it's hardly just outside the D&D fandom. IIRC, currently on this very site there's a mess of contentiousness surrounding very low-level, low-magic play. Someone around here has even complained that a whole 10% of the game is "wasted" on levels 1 and 2, and that campaigns without magic shops are somehow anathema to enjoyable gaming.
Inexplicable ire, indeed.
There's even someone who doesn't like Bards.
And before that, someone who didn't like Paladins. Especially Gnome Paladins.

Yeah. There are some days that I don't want to read the boards because some of this. But, then, I feel like that with engaging with the general human populous most days.
