Critical Role  
I finished campaign 1 of Critical Role last night. It's taken me a year, but I got to the end. For those who don't know, Critical Role is - in the words of Matt Mercer - "a bunch of nerdy-ass voice actors playing Dungeons & Dragons." There are 115 episodes, and the length of each episode ranges from 2 hours to 5 hours. It has canon bisexual characters, agender characters, dragons, Gods, sad moments, hilarious moments...

I feel like I should commemorate the time I spent with these characters, this show, even if nobody else cares. I've never cried so hard at a final episode as I did the one last night. I cried so hard I started to get dizzy and had to drink some water, and gave myself a migraine. But it's been a worthy, wild ride.

I'm going to take a bit before I start campaign 2. Saying goodbye is hard.

Happy birthday!
I hope you have a great day :)

Critical Role is amazing. It sucked me into a cross of writing/playing D&D. The first adventuring party that I created consisted of John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon, and two original characters, and I played out their adventure from level 1 to 10 when I moved on to another party, which included two different characters that are the stand-ins for John and Rodney (Bren and Merideth)...

Re: Happy birthday!
It was pretty relaxing, which is just what I needed!

Critical Role really is amazing, and it's gotten me interested in playing some D&D, too. I love that you've created your own AR-1 adventure party (plus two original characters) - I can imagine some of the shenanigans those four would get up to *grins*
