Nice intro Jim.

Crunch… Crash… Crunch… FYI all… Microphones pick up a lot.

Getting bored are we??? Wanting to do opposing search checks? LOL Excellent! Actually a good idea. (Skill Challenge)

Very funny quip episode, though not to the point of the Friday night drunkfest.

Mike’s insert of “Hello I’m Gunther” is excellently timed and inserted; plus his other quips. Mike plays Gunther very well by explaining why he does what he does (low APP from hump, high Occult from being superstitious) instead of just playing a low-intelligent character and takes the mockery about his character in stride.

Whew… Part two and more information and no combat; yet one sanity check finally after 2.5 hours of overall game play. Zzzzz…

Would the family at the dinner table not be saying? “Thank you for this food and do not let my family be shot by a silver bullet?” LOL

Overall slow but sure. Seth has weaved this adventure from point to point and making it very visually stimulating; while the players have breathed solid life into each of their characters.

Cheers

Even though he only showed up in this and the next session, Mike's Gunther was voted by the listeners as our most popular character. (c.f. SoC #100).
