    Big Fish Head Curry Tour – MALAYSIAN STREET FOOD in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

    August 22, 2019

    – Good morning. I hope you’re having an amazing day. It’s Mark Wiens. I’m in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. And one of the tastiest parts or sections of the fish is the fish head because you’ve got all
    those little oozy bits. You get to dig out the
    little crevices of meat. Locally, it’s known as kepala ikan, and it’s very popular to eat in Malaysia. And so today, I’m gonna take you on a fish head tour of Kuala Lumpur. We’re gonna eat, I have three places that I wanna check out and share with you. We’re gonna eat them one fish head after the next after the next. And this is gonna be an amazing
    day of food in Kuala Lumpur, and I’m gonna share all the fish heads with you in this video. (upbeat music) It’s just 9:30 a.m. right now. They’re still sort of setting up. The fish heads are ready. They’re preparing the fried chicken. This place, it’s, I think
    it’s officially known as Annuar’s Fish Head Curry,
    but lots of people know them as just the Bangsar or fish corner because it’s here at
    the corner of the road, kind of in a little shopping plaza area. But the aroma, you can smell the, oh, by the way, this
    place is also very famous for their fried chicken. You can smell the aroma
    of the fried chicken. You can smell the curry leaves. Oh, man. (laughs) Fish head for breakfast,
    you cannot go wrong. Fried fish. – Fried fish. (mumbles) in the front side, sir. – [Mark] Okay, in the front. – Boss, from the front. – Okay. They want to get a photo of all of them, all the staff here at the front. Say welcome to, welcome to– – Welcome to. – [Mark] Annuar’s. – Welcome to Annuar’s– – [Mark] Kepala ikan. – Yeah, yeah, kepala ikan. – Backside, backside, backside. – [Mark] Okay, one, two, three.
    – One, two, three. – [Group] Welcome to Annuar’s kepala ikan. – Hey, yeah, kepala ikan
    (speaks in foreign language). – Yes. (laughs) Okay, awesome. They’re all so friendly. – Boss, you’re from what country? – Ah, I live in Thailand. – Oh, Thai.
    – Oh, Thailand. – Yes, Thailand, in Bangkok. – [Man] It’s famous for 26 years. – [Mark] So it’s been at
    this corner for 26 years. (man mumbles) Wow.
    – Boss, boss. (mumbles) the curry, very nice. – [Mark] Oh, yeah. – Yeah, the curry, fish
    curry, very special. – [Mark] Hello. (Mr. Annuar speaks in foreign language) Nice to meet you, nice to meet you. – Thank you very much. – [Mark] Are you Mr. Annuar? – Yes, Mr. Annuar. – Ah, very nice to meet you. (upbeat music) Yeah. (chuckles) Mr. Annuar just served
    us a giant fish head. And you can see it’s just, they like literally opened minutes ago. There’s already a line forming. It’s self serving with the fried chicken. Oh, thank you. – Which part of the chicken you like? You want the drumstick? – [Mark] Yes, please. – You want the wings? – [Mark] Yes, please. – [Mr. Annuar] They’re frying the wings. – [Mark] Okay. – You want a thigh? – [Mark] Sounds good. – You want the breast meat? – [Mark] Okay. – [Mr. Annuar] Okay (mumbles). – [Mark] Okay. – Enjoy, eh. – Oh, wow. (Mr. Annuar mumbles) Oh, thank you. (Mr. Annuar mumbles) Uh-huh. – [Mr. Annuar] They’re
    gonna make the cabbage. – The cabbage, okay, great. – [Mr. Annuar] The other guy. – Ah. (Mr. Annuar mumbles) And we have the pleasure
    to hang out with Mr. Dino, who is also, we just met him as we arrived. So we’ve got plates of rice. We’ve got the fried chicken, and then, yeah, the main event, the dish that we came here for,
    which is the kepala ikan, the fish head, which is
    prepared Indian style. That sauce is just rich and spicious. Oh, man, I cannot wait. Okay, we gotta, we gotta set
    the fried chicken aside for now and move right in to
    the massive fish head. So the reason that the fish
    head is so tasty and so good is because there’s so many
    different parts of the fish head to explore and so many
    different little crevices. You’ve got the cheek. You’ve got the upper head. You’ve got the belly-ish
    section in the bottom. You’ve got all sorts of little crevices and
    crannies to dig out. I’m gonna start. Let’s just begin with
    that top head of the fish. And despite like it being a
    head, there’s so much meat. You can just see that it’s’
    just sprouting with meat. Just set some of this top of
    the head onto my rice first, onto my plate of rice. Maybe I’ll go in for some
    of this belly section at the same time. Oh, yeah, there’s so much meat on it. I’ll add some cabbage to my plate as well. Okay, I’m going in for
    that fish head first. This is the top of the
    head, that chunk of fish, mix it with the rice. Mm-hmm. Oh. The flavor of that curry
    sauce is smooth with spices. You taste the, actually, you really taste
    the curry leaves in there. The blend of spices is incredible. Okay. And another bite that
    I can’t wait to taste is the fried chicken with
    some of that curry sauce. Actually, maybe the most common thing that everybody’s eating here
    because it’s quick and simple to just place the fried chicken
    with the curry sauce on top. (chuckles) One more, one more spoon. Okay, I’m tearing into that, tearing into that fried chicken. Oh, the entire, the entire
    covering of skin in one bite. Nice. – Okay. (Mark chuckles) That is the bite.
    – Oh, wow. The fried chicken is amazing. – [Man] So well spiced, wow. – You can see the big tub of chicken which is marinated in a bunch of spices. Then it’s deep fried, so it has this like deep fried crust
    all over the entire chicken. Plus it’s crispy, plus
    the curry sauce on top. It’s seriously tasty. – [Man] Gorgeous. Oh, man. – Mmm. Oh, the head. The head is one of the best things. And again, I think it is like marinated in similar spice blend
    as the fried chicken. It has that same marinade
    flavor as the fried chicken, the spices in there, the
    crispy like outer exterior, and then it’s just like soft and tender. – [Man] Look at the size of that cheek. The cheek is huge. The entire spoon just
    disappears under there. Whoa, oh my gosh. – [Mark] Look at that. Dude, that’s all one cheek. Oh, and I didn’t even get it all. There’s still more. It like goes all the way to the eye. That is all cheek. – [Man] Dude, that’s a massive head. Look at that. Oh my gosh, yeah, the spoon just like
    disappears under there. – I’m gonna definitely
    take this opportunity to rehydrate my fish cheek. A one biter. Cheers.
    (man chuckles) Oh, yeah. I got a scale. – Mmm, mmm, mm-hmm. – [Man] The tenderness is
    out of control right there. – We’re getting down to the
    bottom of the fish head. Now starts the exploration. There’s bits of skin. Here’s eyeballs. Oh, here’s the, here’s the mouth. Can you see those teeth on there? Red snapper lips, upper lip. Just be careful you don’t
    cut yourself on the teeth. Whoa, it’s like, it’s like jelly. The curry sauce itself was amazing. And then all the staff,
    everyone that works here, Mr. Annuar, they’re so nice. They’re so friendly. Not only is the food delicious, but I think why this restaurant,
    this street food style in Kuala Lumpur has such a loyal following is because it’s so welcoming. I mean it’s like a neighborhood stall, and you just feel at home
    when you’re eating here. Thank you very much, Mr. Annuar. That was amazing.
    – Thank you very much. I’m very happy to have you.
    – Amazing. And thank you for your hospitality. So that’s Mr. Annuar, and then your logo. And they were so nice. They refused to accept our payment. So yeah, thank you very much to Annuar’s Fish Head
    Curry, Bangsar, fish corner. Man, that was incredibly good. We are moving on now to
    the next fish head curry. (upbeat music) We’re on our way to eat
    the next fish head curry. You gotta get there before the lunch rush, so we’re on our way. I know it gets packed, and they can sell out
    of the fish heads fast. One of the great things
    about KL, Kuala Lumpur, is that it really is a garden city. It’s such a green city. And so we’re right in the
    center of Kuala Lumpur, but we’re kind of on the hill. I think it’s called
    Tugu Park or something. But there’s a cafe here that’s
    famous for their fish heads. Hello. – [Man] Hello. – So you get to the top of the staircase and all of a sudden, it opens up. There’s a parking lot up here, but you’re just surrounded by jungle. It’s so green. It’s so lush. And then you have, you smell the spices. There’s a whole buffet counter. Again, the famous thing to eat here is the kepala ikan, the fish head curry. And I believe that this version is gonna be more of a Malay style. Let’s get straight to another fish head. So you choose your fish head. There are different prices
    for different sizes. And we met, what is your name again? – I’m Hozi, Hozi. – Hozi, okay.
    – Yes. – And he watches our videos. – [Hozi] What size? – The biggest size, biggest size. – Biggest size. – [Mark} Yes, please. – [Hozi] Okay. – [Mark] Oh, nice. Sounds good. – [Hozi] Okay. That’s fresh, very fresh. – [Mark] Okay. Yeah. Wow. – [Hozi] Lady’s finger and then (mumbles) – [Mark] What is that sauce? – This is like curry
    also, and then mixed– – [Woman] Soya. – [Hozi] Ah, yes, mixed, soya. – [Mark] Oh, okay. – [Hozi] Soya sauce, black soya sauce. – [Mark] Black soya sauce. – [Hozi] Sweet and sour. – [Mark} Ah. – Mango. – [Mark] Green mango? – [Hozi] Green mango. – [Mark] Okay. – [Hozi] It’s celery. – Wow. (chuckles) To keep it warm. This is fish head number two. This is an absolute beauty. And I like how they serve it. Actually, the flame went out
    because we took so many photos, but they did serve it above
    a flame to keep it hot because it’s so big. There’s so much curry sauce. I love how they added that
    extra curry sauce on top as well as the green
    mango shreds all over it. That’s gonna add another twist, dimension to this fish head curry. And he said that it’s a mix
    between Indian and Malay style. It’s like the fusion of Malaysia with the fish head in your pot. I’m gonna just kinda
    park the, park the okra. And this is the eye. Look at the size of this. I’m gonna, I think, actually, the
    easiest thing to do is, again, go for the top of the head there with those chunks of fish
    that are just gonna flake off. Oh, look at that. Look at the amount of meat,
    the head meat on there. And what I especially wanna
    do is go in for some of that, that green mango and just kinda mix that. I’ll go in for some of the
    tofu, some of that green onions and all those herbs, and
    stick this on to my rice. Wow, you gotta really maneuver. You gotta really work your
    way around this fish head. (laughs) Yeah, I got some of
    those shreds of green mango. That’s an awesome touch to it. Oh, wow. Oh, that is stunning. Oh, the green mango, that like
    burst of natural sourness. Again, you can taste the curry leaves. You can taste, I believe
    it’s a jolt of also sourness from tamarind, almost like a fruity taste. The fish is like firm and fresh. Wow, that sauce is unbelievable. Look at this, that meat just
    blooming out of the fish. Wow. That curry sauce is good enough to drink. Okay, I’m gonna try that tofu. And you can see that tofu is just like saturated with the curry sauce as well. You can actually squeeze this tofu and curry sauce would come out. Look. (chuckles) Just juices with the
    curry sauce, super good. What I love about this is that sourness that goes along with all the
    spices in that fish curry. Really, really incredibly good. Okay, I’m gonna move back
    in, grab some of that. Look at that, the entire cheek again. It’s huge. Oh, and there’s also eggplant
    in there and the tofu. And again, you can just so easily just drown your rice in the curry. It’s just so unbelievably good. I’m just gonna take a
    whole chunk, a mandible. Is that a mandible? Okay, this one is the, this one is the cheek right here. That’s the cheek bit. Kinda skim your thumb through,
    get all the bits of fish, the gooey bits, the gelatinous
    bits, the gummy bits. It’s all good. These are curry leaves. There’s beansprouts in here. There’s wing bean. There’s chilies and there’s
    shallots, I believe. And I think it’s like a fish sauce. I’ll put some of this onto my rice. I know my rice is pretty much doused in the curry sauce already. It’s all drowned up, but that’s okay. Mmm, oh, that’s wonderful. Oh, there’s coconut in there. You can really taste the shredded coconut. That is like amazingly refreshing and just a totally different taste. And then finally, one more
    dish we just had to try is the, it’s a type of shell. Is it a seashell? I believe so, right? I think it’s a seashell. And shat you’re supposed
    to do with these shells is kinda suck, suck the top
    so that the little shellfish, the little shell just like, just like plops out into your mouth. Oh, yeah, I got it in one go. Oh, that’s wonderful. It’s like a little squidy
    textured little shell. And then you taste the
    lemongrass in there. Another section of the fish
    head that you don’t wanna miss, I will rehydrate it, is the eyeball. So we’re gonna, look at the size of that eyeball. Actually, let me, I’m just gonna kinda, whoa, look at the amount
    of jelly material. Oh! Wow. That just melts in your mouth. There’s so many jelly bits. And then the actual eyeball
    is like a hard little, I can’t even find the actual eyeball. Usually, it’s like a hard little marble. Mmm, I just got like
    some, the socket material. And then just to garnish, we’ve got some vegetables
    here, some lettuce. There’s some cucumbers. And this is a sambal, I
    believe, with shrimp paste, as well as a dark soy sauce
    with chilies and shallots. Mmm. Here’s another move that I saw from the guy sitting at
    the table next to us. Dude, you gotta try that. – Oh, okay. Mmm. Which one hits first? Mmm, those chilies are so nice. There’s like tomatoeyness there,
    and then the peppery curry, and then the creaminess of that fish meat. Cool. – All that’s left is the main
    like head structure, bone, some, the jawline, and a
    little bit of extra sauce. But that sauce is so good,
    you’re gonna want to drink it. Okay, time to wash my hands. And then also, they give you
    this little, this little card. We got table number, we got table number, is that 189? No, that’s right, 189. That’s about how good
    your orientation will be after eating that fish head. (laughs) – I can’t believe it. It’s like one of the 10
    best meals in the past year, I mean, easily. – The total price came to 144 ringgit, which is pretty expensive,
    but we did get the largest, most gigantic fish head that
    they had for the entire day. You can get smaller fish heads for only 45 ringgit or 55 or 65. We got the 120 ringgit fish
    head, but it was so worth it. But definitely, a dish like that, you should share between
    a number of people. You should share it between
    more than two people like we did.
    – Two. (laughs) – Yeah. (laughs) Well, Ying had a little bite, but she was already
    full from the last meal. But you can definitely
    share that between like four or five people and
    still be very, very happy. But that was so worth it. This is an amazing, an amazing restaurant. And again, I cannot emphasize
    the relaxing state of mind and relaxing state of
    stomach that you will be in when you eat here because it’s
    so, ah, yeah, the fresh air. That was amazing. – Alright. – That was amazing. Alright. We’re driving over to an
    area of KL called Pudu, which is a very Chinese area of the city. (Ying speaks in foreign language) (man speaks in foreign language) (Ying speaks in foreign language) – Thank you. – Thank you very much. Oh, awesome. This is restaurant number three, totally different style of fish head. This is not a curry, but
    this is more of a Chinese, well, it is a completely
    Chinese-themed fish head. – Together with the body, yeah, yeah. – Oh, and the body also. – Yeah. – Okay. – [Man] Mun Kee, yeah, Mun Kee. – [Mark] Oh, Mun Kee, okay. – Yeah, Mun Kee. Sweet potato leaf or kangkong. – [Mark] Maybe kangkong. – Kangkong (mumbles). – Awesome. – [Man] Okay, thank you, thank you. – Thank you very much. That’s six different types of fish heads. There’s the black bean,
    the asam, the clear steam, the ginger, the sambal and the Nyonya. I thought the Nyonya would
    be really interesting because that’s the (mumbles). That’s the Malay-Chinese version. But then he said that that’s totally out. They ran out for lunch. So we missed the lunch rush, but we ended up ordering
    the clear steam fish head. That’s another one of their
    specialties, and that’s gonna be totally different from what
    we’ve already eaten today, the fish heads that we’ve
    already eaten today so far. (upbeat music) Fish head number three has arrived, and this is exceeding my, what
    I even had imagined possible as what is considered a fish head. They like include, I
    think they only take off the tail, basically. This solid fish, you can
    smell the ginger, the chilies. It’s very like light and
    refreshing and aromatic. Yeah, it just looks like
    very clean, very beautiful, Chinese style steamed fish. Oh, it’s so juicy, and you
    can see, look at that flesh. Okay, you are gonna have to
    be careful of bones here, but look at that white
    meat and then the juice. Onto the rice, and let me get
    a little more of that juice. Okay, yeah. So be careful of the bones though. Mmm, mmm. It’s so, yeah, so clean and light tasting. You taste the soy sauce. You taste the ginger. And I like how there’s
    a few sliced up chilies to give it some heat. It’s so juicy because it’s steamed. They are definitely stretching the definition of fish head here, serving you the entire body
    along with the fish head. And I’m totally okay with that. Oh, you know what, I
    didn’t even notice this, but I think it’s just the half a fish. So you get more meat on the body, but then it’s split down the middle, so it’s the half a head. Oh, that’s perfect. And then you can kinda
    navigate your way around, grab some of that head meat. You can see the head has quite, that skin is very thick and like blubbery. And you know what else? You can taste the Chinese wine. – Is it plum? I was gonna ask– – I think the wine in there. – If you think it’s plum or wine. – I think it’s maybe rice wine. – Ah-huh. – You can taste that slight
    like wine flavor in there along with the soy sauce,
    with the steamed ginger. But yeah, the ginger is
    what really, is the key flavor-defining ingredient
    in this fish head. They have a side little bowl
    of raw garlic and raw chilies, which I will go ahead and
    sprinkle onto my plate of rice. That’s gonna give it some extra kick. Oh, I’m going in for that ultimate bite. And I think I’m gonna add one more scoop of that incredibly
    delicious steaming sauce, full flavor overload. Oh, yes. That’s delicious. The fish, again, is so fresh. It’s, it’s so lightly flavorful and just emphasizes the
    natural flavor of the dish. Okay, the next dish we got
    is the steamed chicken. And this is called kampung ayam, which is like a village running chicken, steamed, with a ginger sauce on the side. Dip it into the ginger sauce. Oh, that looks incredible. Mmm, oh yeah. That is incredibly good. Oh, the chicken has the perfect texture, that running texture, slightly chewy but full of flavor. And you can taste the sesame oil in there and that ginger sauce. The ginger is just like
    completely crushed. The oils have come out. Mmm. Oh, the chicken is incredible. But I’m always a huge
    fan of steamed chicken with the ginger sauce. Yeah, it’s a great, great
    like, just a great dish. Finally, that kangkong, which
    is the water morning glory, stir fried with sambal. And I think there’s some
    shrimp paste in here too. Mmm, mmm. Always one of the best dishes to order, vegetable dishes when you
    come to the Malay peninsula. You taste the shrimpiness of it, and you can really taste the
    smokiness of the wok on that, in that vegetable as well. There’s always a massive chunk of meat right on the top of
    the head section there. Look at that. Rehydrate it a little bit. This is a move I just cannot resist doing, the rehydration move. Yes. (chuckles) I have to admit, when he
    set down the fish head in front of us, the steamed fish head, I was a little bit like
    wow, that’s pretty big. That’s a lot of meat on there. But somehow, it just
    kinda disappeared on us. That was so easy. It went down so easily. It was so like just refreshing, even though it being our
    third fish head in a row. It just went down, and that
    was incredibly delicious. Again, as you can see, just a completely different
    style of a fish head. This was not a curry. This is a steamed fish
    head, Chinese style. And again, I just cannot emphasize what a joy it is to eat in Malaysia because of the diversity of
    flavors, cultures and cuisines that make up Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur. This has been a joyous day of eating fish heads in Kuala Lumpur. This was not a comparison video. I had no intention to tell you which one is the best because
    they’re all so different and they’re all so incredibly good. But my aim of this video
    is to just give you a tour and to check out some of these, some of the best fish
    heads that you will find in Kuala Lumpur and just
    share them with you. So I will have all of the information in the description box
    below so you can check out. You can eat at all three places
    in a row if you would like or spread them out between days. Fish heads are truly one of the
    tastiest sections of a fish. And that was a wonderful
    day in Kuala Lumpur. So I wanna say a huge thank
    you for watching this video. Please remember to give it a
    thumbs up if you enjoyed it. Leave a comment below. I’d love to hear from you. And if you’re not already

    A Hole In the Plan | Critical Role | Campaign 2, Episode 42

    August 21, 2019

    MATT: Hello everyone, and welcome to tonight’s
    episode of Critical Role, where a bunch of us nerdy-ass voice actors sit around and play
    Dungeons & Dragons. Before we dive into tonight’s episode, we have some announcements to get
    through, so hang tight for just a moment. We have two fantastic sponsors for tonight’s episode, the
    first, of course, our fantastic returning friends and allies in this Campaign Two: D&D Beyond. Sam? SAM: D&D Beyond, everybody. It’s almost
    Thanksgiving time and I thought, what better for us to do than to thank our long-time sponsor D&D
    Beyond. They’ve been with us all campaign, we hope into the next year, so as a token of our
    appreciation, we put together a highlight reel of all my best moments from all the best D&D Beyond
    ads of the year, so roll that clip, gentlemen, and we’re going to– Hold on. I’ve just been handed
    something. Okay. I’m being told that we don’t have that clip, which is disappointing because we had
    meetings about this all week, I talked to editors about this, and this was important to me, and to–
    Okay, sorry. Okay, I’m being told that we did not have meetings all week about this, and this is a
    bit that I wrote about an hour ago. Needless to say, I feel like D&D Beyond is going to not like
    this because we’ve taken them on this rollercoaster of emotions now, and they’re going
    to be pretty pissed off, they may pull their sponsorship dollars– Okay, now I’m being told
    that no, they will not pull their sponsorship dollars because they really just want me to read
    the ad copy that they provided me two days ago. So I’ll just read that now, and they’ll be happy. As
    a reminder from last week, Dungeon of the Mad Mage and the Magic: The Gathering D&D crossover,
    Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica, are available now in the D&D Beyond marketplace. Be sure to pick up
    yours at Okay, fine, so maybe they’re a great company, but I feel like
    they’re going to resent me for– I am being told that no, they’re not going to resent me at all,
    and in fact they have a promo code named after me. The promo code is “SamIsOurHero”– not case
    sensitive– it can be used right now for 25% off all digital books, including those two books I
    just mentioned earlier, so go to the store right now and use it. Okay, forget about D&D Beyond, all
    right? The fans will be pissed off at me, right? They will think that I’m an awful human being,
    they’ll drag my name on Reddit– I’m being told now that there’s nothing written on any of these
    pieces of paper, and this is just a thinly-veiled attempt to get attention to myself because I am
    very insecure, I have these deep-seated problems, and– I’m being told now that I’m actually pretty
    happy, and I don’t have any deep-seated depression or anything like that, and I’m a pretty good guy.
    Wow, I really think, guys, that this bit has been a journey for all of us, and I feel like we’ve all
    learned something about ourselves, and about– Nope, I’m being told we have not learned anything,
    and that I’m to wrap it up, so back to you, Matt! MATT: Thank you, Sam. TRAVIS: We’re going to recycle all those papers,
    right? MATT: Yes. May you enjoy your ever-future in race
    car beds. Thank you, D&D Beyond, for being our friends and allies in this. Our secondary sponsor
    tonight is the fantastic company Thinkfun’s Shadows in the Forest game. For those who haven’t
    seen it, this is the reimagining of the classic gameWaldschattenspiel— I know I pronounced it
    terribly– but Thinkfun licensed it, maybe. Shadows in the Forest is the only collaborative
    board game that you actually play in the dark. In the game you play as Shadowlings, they’re these
    scattered gnomish-like creatures that hide in the shadows and live in the forest, and it’s really
    cool. You all have to work together to try and meet under a singular tree on the board while one
    of the players plays as a lantern, an actual physical lantern that gives off light, and so you
    can only move within the shadows, and if the player moves the light– SAM: That sounds awesome! MATT: It’s really cool. TALIESIN: I brought a copy, actually, I forgot to
    bring it out onto the table, but I have a copy that we’ll probably play. MATT: It’s really cool, because if you’re playing
    one of the shadows and you’re caught in the light, you can’t move, and if the person who’s playing
    the light manages to catch all the Shadowlings in the light, they win, but if all the Shadowlings
    manage to meet under there– It actually uses– MARISHA: They did a creepy animation for a promo
    that’s during the break. TALIESIN: It’s got little stand-up trees, and the
    little creatures are very Miyazaki-looking, and the whole thing’s got a very Candyland for goth
    kids vibe. The dice glow, which I also think is really cool. MATT: It’s pretty fun. So you can check it out on
    Amazon, and it’s currently at 20% off there for a limited time, so make sure to pick up your copy
    now if you plan to. It is Shadows in the Forest, and it is awesome and I’m really excited to try it
    out. Next up, lets see, Travis do you want to go ahead and talk a little bit about Operation Supply
    Drop? TRAVIS: Yes! Operation Supply Drop is my charity
    that we are supporting this November in honor of Veterans Day. OSD is an amazing charity. They’ve
    helped over 750,000 members of the military community. In active service, in their transition
    back to civilian life, they help the families of the people that have served. These guys are so
    great. They have skill fairs, they help people with job training, resumes, anything that’ll take
    them from being a military back into the real world. To me, it’s so personal. My family has been
    in the military for, oh god, decades. So if you can, share with your friends and family, give a
    little love. Everything you need to know about the charity, or just donate, is at MATT: Thank you guys for your amazing support of
    this initiative. It’s been awesome to watch all the Critters come together to help support our
    troops there. It’s been awesome. We also have a bunch of new live content coming to our Critical
    Role Twitch stream in the next few weeks, including the season finale of All Work No Play. SAM: That’s tomorrow. LAURA: Oh my goodness! MATT: Yeah. I’ve seen clips and I’m already pretty
    excited. LIAM: Very, very, very special. MARISHA: I’ve been doing this a while. It might be
    the weirdest thing I’ve produced. It’s frickin weird. Yeah, whole thing’s bizarre. MATT: There’s also an all-honey Honey Heist coming
    up. (cheering) MATT: All-honey Honey Heist. SAM: Is it all honey plus Brian Foster, or just
    all honeys? MARISHA: Nope, just all honeys. SAM: Awesome. MARISHA: All the ladies. TRAVIS: Honey Heist! Honey, Honey Heist! MARISHA: Laura, of course, some old friends: Mary
    Elizabeth and Noelle Stevenson SAM: Ooh! MARISHA: Some classics, yeah. LIAM: That’s some heavy She-Ra juice. TRAVIS: So much power at one table. Wow! MARISHA: As well as the lovely Dani Carr that we
    all know and love. The lovely Brittany Walloch from All Work No Play fame. SAM: I’ve heard of them. MARISHA: Who else am I missing, huh? MATT: Isn’t Krystina playing? MARISHA: Oh and Krystina Arielle from Sirens of
    the Realms. TRAVIS: Yeah, yeah! MARISHA: Full house. MATT: Going to be a lot of fun, so check it out.
    We also have Sam’s Pablove fireside chat coming up soon. SAM: Oh that’s right, I have to do a fireside
    chat. MATT: Yeah, you do. TRAVIS: Are you doing that in a speedo, or what? LIAM: No, he promised to free-ball it. TRAVIS: What? Amazing! SAM: Okay. Uh-huh. MATT: And much more. Go to for
    details of all these fantastic shows that are coming up in the next couple of weeks. We’ll have
    more updates as far as our content schedule as it comes. Also, our second art book, as you
    mentioned, Chronicles of Exandria Volume II: Legend of the Vox Machina is available for
    pre-order at the shop at and for our UK and surrounding
    European brethren. An important note, if you do not reside in the UK or the US: you may want to
    check both stores to see which is most cost effective to ship from. It just happens to be
    wibbly-wobbly shipping stuff. Huge thanks to all of you for your fantastic support, for all the
    fantastic artists, and the fantastic community. This is a big love letter to the end of last
    campaign, and each of you having something really special to come to make this a memorable keepsake
    for all of us. So thank you. As a reminder, there will not be an episode of Critical Role next week
    because it’s Thursday November 22nd, which is Thanksgiving here in the US. TRAVIS: Going to eat food! MATT: Yep, I know. We will be enjoying time off
    with our family and friends, but we will be thinking of you guys in the meantime and we will
    be back the week after that. So there’ll be a one week break, we’ll see you in two weeks after
    tonight’s episode. I believe those are all– LAURA: I got something! MATT: Oh! Sneaky Laura! LAURA: No, it’s not on the thing, but I have it
    anyway. Are you wearing it? MARISHA: Yes, I am! LAURA: We have our hoodies, back in stock in It’s new and improved. Yeah, 2.0. This really awesome text was hand
    calligraphed? Calli– how do you say it? TALIESIN: Calligraphed. LAURA: Did I say it right? By Chris Gladis and
    then we turned it into this graphic, and so it’s really gorgeous. MATT: Critter calligraphed. LAURA: Yes! And it’s super soft still. MARISHA: It’s so nice! LAURA: Then the other thing that’s in the store
    now that we didn’t tell you guys about ahead of time is something I’m very excited about. We have
    baby onesies! There’s not a ton of them because how many Critter babies are there? TRAVIS: Thousands! LAURA: I designed this one, it says, “I wanna be a
    monstah!” MARISHA: Look at the little rattle mace! LAURA: It’s got a mace rattle! MATT: Also viable for our really small critters,
    too. I think Sam will fit in one. TRAVIS: We will certainly try. MATT: In fact for the fireside chat we could– SAM: Oh, maybe I can just wear that. That’s a good
    idea. MATT: Well, thank you, Laura. With that, my
    friends, I think tonight, it’s time to dive into our episode of Critical Role. [TV static, click] [groovy Critical Role theme] MATT: And welcome back. Wow. You guys are ever
    creative. Last we left off. The Mighty Nein– Garbage wine? LIAM: Garbage wine. SAM: Water. MATT: The Mighty Nein had made their way to the
    Menagerie Coast, got swept up in a bunch of chaos, and found themselves out at sea, amongst the
    Swavain Islands, taken in by a pirate crew, captained by Captain Avantika, basically at threat
    of death otherwise. Sent to an island to investigate a temple, learn about seals that
    possibly are keeping your patron, Uk’otoa, at bay. Made your way back across the Lucidian Ocean,
    towards the city of Darktow. Actually actively partook in some piracy. SAM: Yeah. TRAVIS: Polite piracy MATT: Polite piracy. Sure. TALIESIN: You got a participant trophy. MATT: Whatever it takes to help you sleep at
    night. And found yourselves at the pirate city of Darktow, surrounded by the Dragshallow Reef. Where
    you had just arrived, with both ships, the Squalleater and The Mistake. The crew you had
    hired out of Nicodranas, looking very confused and concerned at their current fate, given the fact
    they were just hired hands at sea. You were ushered up along the sheer cliffs alongside
    Darktow Isle, a long stone shelf within the cavern where the Plank King himself greeted you, bid you
    entry to the Revelry, this extending band of pirates across this part of the ocean. Laid some
    ground rules and sent you on your way. And that is where we left off. Mighty Nein, as you descend the
    rain-covered stone steps that descend down the side of the cliffs– how’s that for alliteration
    in a phrase? Making your way towards the now-darkened evening city of Darktow, the distant
    glimmers of interior firelight slightly emanating from open windows. You can see folks walking
    through town, the light drizzle threatening to stifle the low torchlight being carried from
    location to location. You can see the outline of dozens of ships that are locked into the shipyard
    that surrounds the city, as well as the crooked outline of nearby barricades set up across the
    reefs that surround the island. Avantika proceeds before you. What would you like to do? SAM: (whispers) Shoot her in the back of the
    head. LAURA: (whispers) We could totally push her off
    the cliff right now. SAM: Oh! MARISHA: (whispers) Uk’otoa. TRAVIS: Yeah, so, the group is us plus Avantika
    and– MARISHA: Her crew? MATT: No, just Avantika. Her crew went to The
    Bloated Cup, which is a tavern. MARISHA: And we’re headed there. MATT: Correct. You assume you’re headed back
    there. LIAM: Pirate on pirate violence isverboten. LAURA: She just slipped. LIAM: That’s true. SAM: I saw it. MARISHA: She fell down the stairs, you guys. TRAVIS: Night time, right? Sun has gone down? MATT: Correct. TRAVIS: Okay. MARISHA: I catch up to her a little bit. Hey,
    Avantika. MATT: “Yes?” MARISHA: Weird question. MATT: “Possibly a weird answer.” MARISHA: How much do you know– How do you know
    how to give a certain amount to Avantika? Sorry, the Plank King. Freudian slip. MATT: “Well, when we return into the bay, we are
    to essentially give the materials, or at least a “number of what we’ve managed to acquire. We are
    supposed to, essentially– what is the word I’m “looking for? Whatisthe word I’m looking for?” SAM: Tithe? MATT: Tithe, I would say– You’re going through
    customs and you have to– ALL: Declare. MATT: Declare, thank you. “You must declare the
    amount of which you have recently come upon, and “from that there is a tithe offer to the Plank
    King, roughly about 25-30%. But we do not pay for “our ship repairs, we have free asylum here within
    the island, and we are under the strict law that “if anyone double-crosses anyone else within the
    bounds of the city, they will have the hammer of “the Plank King down upon them.” MARISHA: It’s very intense. MATT: “That is the way of life.” MARISHA: So it’s less like a government and more
    of a union that you buy into? MATT: “More or less, yes. They’re not much into
    governing, more just–” MARISHA: Like a union with a dictator? MATT: “A union with a very hard-headed and
    forthright union leader.” MARISHA: “Hmm. Do you ever think you could make a
    good union leader?” MATT: “Nah. I have my own specific interests,
    they’re much more narrow.” MARISHA: Huh. MATT: “Why, do you have aspirations?” MARISHA: No. MATT: “I didn’t think so.” MARISHA: Who needs aspirations? MATT: “Well, some of us do. There has to be more
    to you than just this “contradictory-for-the-sake-of-being-contradictory
    aspect, eh?” MARISHA: I would love for you to tell me about it
    someday. MATT: “Come, let’s have a drink, huh? First
    round’s on me.” MARISHA: Deal. SAM: (singing) Everyone’s fucking Avantika! LIAM:Youare going to judgemefor finger
    motions? Hold on, everybody, stop the game. Laura Bailey just shamed me for a sexual finger motion,
    atthistable, after three and a half motherfucking years! I have seen everything!
    Resume the game. TRAVIS: Avantika is the Infinity Gauntlet and she
    has one stone. (laughter) TRAVIS: Or does she? MATT: Well, she lost a stone, technically. TALIESIN: Well. We should take a look around,
    maybe get a sense of this place, since we’re going to be here for a while when they fix the ship. I
    have a few things I’m looking for. MARISHA: Might as well go to the pub. TALIESIN: We could do that, sure, I guess. MARISHA: First drink’s on her. LAURA: I think that guy was wearing a wig. SAM: Oh yes, he did have a weird hairline, right? LAURA: Yeah, it was a really bad-made wig. I mean,
    the hair looked good, but it was really obvious. SAM: Maybe that’s in fashion here, maybe we should
    all go wig shopping. LAURA: Ooh! SAM: Just saying. TRAVIS: Captain, how did the current Plank King
    get to the position that he holds now, do you know? MATT: “As far as I have been told, at the very
    least– this was before my time joining the “Revelry– there was a disagreement, and the
    previous Plank King seemed to be in the minority “of the side of this disagreement, and the current
    Plank King was in the majority. So they stormed “the caverns of the previous Plank King, and tossed
    most of his corpse to the rocks below.” TRAVIS: A little mutiny, eh? Did– Hmm.
    Interesting. No, that’s all. MATT: “To his credit, the current Plank King has
    done a very fine job of maintaining organization “in the Revelry.” TRAVIS: That’s what I was going to ask: if you
    were a fan or not. MATT: “He doesn’t bother me, he leaves us well
    enough alone, we follow the rules, we maintain “all of the benefits of being under the banner, and
    I’m left to my own devices.” TRAVIS: Any foes of yours in this Darktow? Anyone
    we should look out for? MATT: “There are a number of unsavory types, but
    I’ve made a bit of a reputation of being a “little– eh? People don’t like to tangle with that
    too much, eh?” TRAVIS: Yeah, why would you get wrapped up in
    that? Yeah, let’s go grab a drink. MARISHA and SAM: Mm-hmm. LAURA: How long have you been a pirate? MATT: “Let’s see. Open on the seas? About 12, 13
    years.” LAURA: Whoa! LIAM: How did you fall into it? MATT: “I got sick of following somebody else’s
    orders.” LIAM: Where do you hail from? MATT: “I’ll tell you over drinks. This is not the
    best place to have these discussions, eh? Perhaps “after a few rounds. Come! To The Bloated Cup!” SAM: The Bloated Cup. TRAVIS: Yep. We go. MATT: As you guys finish descending the stairs
    into the city itself, you catch there are quite a few patrols through the city. You can see the
    torchlight being held by each as they make their way, just keeping an eye out. You get the sense
    that there’s probably quite a number of volunteers, or at least individuals, that are
    intent on maintaining the semblance of civility here within Darktow itself. Leading close towards
    The Bloated Cup, it’s not that far from where you had set your ship within the shipyard. It’s a
    fairly large two-story tavern, very wide across its bottom, and seems to be at least one of maybe
    two social gathering sites here within the city, once the sun goes down. Three blocks away, you can
    already hear the music, chatter, laughter, and yelling. As you approach closer, begin to look
    from the outside in, the warm light and the movement of shadows across the open windows shows
    you that the place is pretty jam-packed. As you begin to make your way into, following Avantika,
    to the interior, you hear the shouting and burbling and clinking of glasses as the far corner
    has five or six individuals. You’re not sure if they’re paid musicians, or just sailors who happen
    to have a bit of experience with a fiddle, a drum, and a flute of some kind. As the music begins to
    play, you can see there is one table that has a lot of Avantika’s crew. They’ve pushed a bunch of
    chairs clammed together– clammed?– crammed together with some bits of dried bread and
    somewhat soft fruit, some cheeses laid out, and two large pitchers of ale already waiting at the
    get-go. Right off from them, you see a smaller table with everyone you’ve hired from The Mistake,
    including Orly, all sitting there clutching their glasses looking around scared shitless. As soon as
    you enter, their eyes turn to you and they go– (laughter) TRAVIS: They do that cafeteria thing, “Hey! Hey,
    you want to sit? Over here?” MATT: At which point Avantika goes, “Come! Have a
    seat!” and pushes one of the other tables out of the way of a few other people that are already
    sitting at it. She takes her hand and scoots it across the table and they both go, (annoyed
    grunt), and spit on the ground and get up and move away. Immediately you get the sense that there is
    a power dynamic. Avantika seems to have at least some modicum of respect amongst the rest of the
    riff-raff within this tavern. TALIESIN: She’s a Heather. MARISHA: (knowing laugh) MATT: Pushing the tables together, kicking a
    couple of the stools over, it looks like there’s enough spots at the table for most of you. One or
    two of you might have to stand or find a place next to the rest of your hired help. TALIESIN: I’ll stand. LAURA: I’ll stand, too. MATT: As you guys all sit down, drinks and rounds
    begin to be passed to each of you, conversations already mid-discussing. You hear bits and pieces
    about how, “the blessing of the Serpent has been “upon us this past month.” Being on the ship with
    most of the crew, they haven’t been terribly social with you. They’ve helped you and guided you
    in learning a few things, but there’s still very much this separation and attention that you’re the
    newcomers, and a strange, new shiny thing in their captain’s eye. This is the first time you’ve seen
    them a little bit three sheets to the wind as a group, and they’re talking openly. Avantika has a
    definite zealotry to her, but you start noticing members of the crew and why they are with her or,
    at least, now that they’ve been there, they’ve also bought into these tales of Uk’otoa. You get
    the sense that they believe that this path that she’s following will lead to her success and, by
    default, probably their success. TALIESIN: How many of them are true believers?
    Give or take? MATT: Make an insight check for me. TRAVIS: You’re no good at those, right? TALIESIN: I’m terrible at these. TRAVIS: I want to know what blood type they are. TALIESIN: 26 MATT: Okay, that’ll do. That’ll, yeah. Okay. You
    get the sense that Vera, who’s the older human, the tough-looking woman who was her quartermaster
    before it was passed to Fjord, is definitely the most invested in this idea, this spiritual journey
    they’re all embarking on with captain at the helm. You also feel that Ipess, who’s the gnome second
    mate that you’ve encountered previously, in a very similar way is completely invested, eyes wide. His
    general banter tends to be a little crazed and sporadic, but whenever they’re talking about the
    Great Serpent, now with phrasing of “The Leviathan” as the title has become more prominent with
    discovery, there’s a reverence to his eyes and an attentiveness that is out of character for him. So
    you mark Vera and Ipess as two very intent believers, behind Avantika. TALIESIN: Is there anybody who’s awkwardly into
    it, but definitely would probably walk away if they could? Is there anybody who’s a little– MATT: You get the sense that Bouldergut, the ogre,
    half-understands it and is more just excited because everyone else is excited. It’s like a dog
    that gets really wound up when everyone around is talking loud. That’s Bouldergut. A number of the
    deckhands appear to be invested, but they’re less intensely driven and more just excited that their
    captain’s excited and maybe starting to consider that there is something to this now that they’ve
    seen the things they’ve seen, and the powers that she’s acquired. That’s a good spread of what
    you’ve managed to gather. TALIESIN: That’ll do. TRAVIS: I’ll grab a drink and I’ll head over to
    where Vera’s sitting. MATT: Okay. Vera is sitting directly to the right
    of Avantika, and there’s not much space to sit next to her, but you could grab a stool and
    squeeze in to her right side. TRAVIS: Yeah, I’ll take a drink and I’ll plop it
    down right in front of her and I’ll take a knee on the floor, so I’m kneeling next to her on the
    other side of Avantika. I’ll say: Hey listen, no hard feelings, right? MATT: “There is no hard feelings. I understand the
    reasoning, and the captain’s word is law. I am “excited to see the great things you accomplish as
    the quartermaster of our ship.” TRAVIS: Right, whatever’s best for the ship. MATT: “Precisely, and for the captain.” TRAVIS: Well, I feel the presence of Uk’otoa
    smiling on all of us and I know that our partnership here will be a beneficial one. MATT: “I can only agree.” TRAVIS: Well, this has been fun. If you need
    anything, as your quartermaster, you just let me know. MATT: “Aye aye. Captain.” Looks to Avantika.
    Avantika right now is deep in the cups. At this point, a figure turns around the corner. You see a
    male gnome: short, maybe in his 40s or so with spiked hair. It’s thinning on the top, but you can
    see he’s taken thick balms of some kind to try and make it look intensely young, and failing halfway.
    Big mutton chops that come down to a very pointed chin, and he’s dressed in fairly decent clothing,
    a nice silk vest with billowing sleeves out of his shirt, with some bangles that clink around his
    wrists. He comes and finds you on the opposite side and looks across to Avantika grinning. He
    goes, “Well well well, it’s been a while since “we’ve seen you ’round here!” She turns to him and
    goes, “Ah, Sorris! You’re back from that fool’s “errand, I see. How was the Shattered Teeth?” He
    goes, “Eh, foggy and cold as shit. How goes your “cloud-chasing journeys, love?” She goes, “Grand!
    We might have scored a fine shipwreck, and a “promise of salvage, eh?” Looks back to him. “You
    up for hire, perhaps?” He goes, “Eh, tempting but, “nah. I’m still fresh off the water, want to enjoy
    myself a while.” She’s like, “All right, very “well, we’ll be in port for a day or two while we
    get some repairs done. If you change your mind, “well, just start shouting. I’m sure we’ll find
    your annoying voice easy enough.” He goes, “(giggles) Sure that is, eh? You’re all new ’round
    here.” LAURA: Arr! SAM: Yeah, we’re new pirates. Are you a pirate? I
    mean, I guess we’re all pirates, right? Everyone’s a pirate here? MATT: “At the moment, no. At the moment I’m a
    civilian, and a drunkard.” SAM: Oh! TALIESIN: Shattered Teeth, what’s the Shattered
    Teeth? Did your teeth shatter? Is that a place? MATT: “No, it’s a series of islands to the south
    of here.” TALIESIN: Oh. LAURA: We know that because we’re pirates too, and
    we know those things. TALIESIN: I could fill a book with what I don’t
    know. TRAVIS: Sorry, I didn’t catch your name, it
    was–? MATT: “Sorris. Sorris Kay. What’s your name?” TRAVIS: Oh, I’m Fjord. Nice to meet you. MATT: “Fjord? All right.” SAM: Are you a captain, or do you do something
    else that’s more specialized? MATT: “Me? No, I’m a sniper.” SAM: A sniper? LIAM: What do you snipe with? MATT: “Things. Why are you so curious?” LIAM: You’re an interesting fellow. MATT: “Speak for yourself, sir. What’s your
    name?” LIAM: My name is Phillip. MATT: Make a deception check. SAM: Name check! TRAVIS: Strong name. LIAM: What is that? I don’t have my contacts in. I
    can barely see it. That’s 11, right? So that is 17. MATT: He goes, “Okay, Phillip, and what’s your
    specialty? What do you bring to the crew?” LIAM: Oh, I am a navigator. Newer, but eager and
    looking forward to plying my trade. SAM: Quick, Phillip, which way’s north? LIAM: It’s right that way. SAM: That’s amazing! MATT: “That’s actually pretty good!” SAM: You can spin him. Here! I’m going to spin him
    around a couple times. Now which way’s north? LIAM: It’s still over toward the hallway over
    there. SAM: Wow, right? MATT: “That’s pretty good. Me, I’ve got a few odds
    and things, mainly with a longbow. Good shot “there, but an eye that can see things on the
    horizon, mainly live up in the crow’s nest, you “know? Keep an eye out.” LIAM: You know, this is our first time on these
    islands and I don’t know much about it at all. Is there any legal system here? Do you know what I
    mean? Or is it just, you know– (gunshots) MATT: “He’s joking, right?” Avantika goes, “I’m
    afraid not. His bailiwick, apparently, is being “curious and clueless.” LIAM: I am a big reader and there is a lot I don’t
    know, like my tall friend over here. I mean, there must be trouble that breaks out. There must be bar
    fights. MATT: “Of course, bar fights are fun. That’s part
    of the reason we live here!” LIAM: Well, I can see the appeal, but what happens
    if there’s something risky or it causes theft of property for someone important? MATT: “If it’s a member of the Revelry thieving
    from another member of the Revelry, and it gets found out, it’s brought to Plank King. Plank King
    makes a judgment, based on that, some sort of reparations or– (thud, screaming, impacts)” LIAM: So Plank King is the law? MATT: “More or less.” LIAM: That’s biblical. LAURA: But you can still fight other people? For
    fun? MATT: “Why? You looking for a fight?” LAURA: Are you looking for a fight? MATT: “Always.” SAM: Don’t fight each other! LAURA: Why? SAM: Because that’s crazy. MATT: “I never throw the first punch, so anytime.”
    He taps the side of one of his jowls. You hear the ruffle of his fingers through his somewhat curled
    muttonchop on the side. MARISHA: Do it! MATT: Grabs a drink and without breaking eye
    contact– TRAVIS: We just got here. SAM: Why? Why would you do this? MARISHA: I’m the worst influence. I’m going to say
    do it. LIAM: We are trying to get the lay of the land
    here. LAURA: Tusktooth? TRAVIS: (gulping) LAURA: I punch him in the chin! MATT: Roll an attack. TALIESIN: You didn’t even ask him if there’s a
    bookshop nearby. LIAM: Might have gotten to that, perhaps. LAURA: Unarmed strike! 14? No, 15. MATT: 15 hits. You do one point of damage plus
    your strength modifier. LAURA: Four points of damage! MATT: Boom, right across his chin. He falls to the
    ground, turns around, rubs his chin. “That was a surprising bit of power there for someone your
    size. Come at me!” He dives at you. Roll initiative. MARISHA: Yes! LAURA: 16. MATT: Oh, he beats you at a 17. 15 plus two. For a
    small size, he is quick and he jukes to one side, turns around, and goes for a haymaker to the side
    of your face! That’s cocked. That’s a 14 to hit. LAURA: Oh, I turn and he hits my shield. MATT: Ping! “Ah!” LAURA: I swipe at him with my tail and try to trip
    him. MATT: Go for it. Make another attack roll. LAURA: 19! MATT: Are you just doing damage or are you trying
    to shove him and knock him prone? LAURA: Just knock him prone. MATT: Okay, that’s your athletics check,
    actually. LAURA: Oh, okay, so I would add 13 plus
    athletics. MATT: He’s going to make his acrobatics to try and
    dodge. LAURA: 16. MATT: Natural 19. He manages to leap in the air
    and your tail hits the side of the table and (thudding) to one side. The drinks begin to spill
    and one reaches out and grabs them, prevents them from being knocked over. TRAVIS: We’re all grabbing our drinks and standing
    up. LAURA: Wow, you’re quick! MATT: As soon as you turn back and say that, you
    look and he’s not anywhere to be seen. Then you hear this (footsteps) under the table. You glance
    down as you watch him leaping up from between your legs and the table to uppercut you right in the
    chin. That’s 18 to hit. LAURA: I’m 18. MATT: He just manages to hit you! You take three
    points of damage. Crack! Right from underneath the chin, you feel your jaw clink into your teeth,
    there’s a horrible screeching sound. It hurts. You can feel the numbness in your face from the
    impact. After he hits you, he darts off around from behind and he’s probably going to go in for a
    hold, but you have your go. LAURA: Okay, I’m going to reach out and try to
    punch him in the back of the head. MATT: Go for it. SAM: Inelegant, but perfect. LAURA: Oh no. Natural one. MATT: You go to swing for his head and he grabs
    your hand and goes, “Ah-ah-ah.” He goes to pull you forward to go for a headbutt. MATT: That’s a 19 to hit! LAURA: Fuck me. MATT: Crack! Right in the front of the forehead
    and the nose, you can immediately feel the blood beginning to pour from underneath. SAM: Crikey. MATT: Behind, you guys watch the crowd. A lot of
    people’s attention have turned to this bar fight. A few of them are now backing up and getting their
    drinks, ready to watch. Somebody else at the table goes (impacts) and punches somebody else and
    starts another aspect, and now there’s another bar fight beginning down the side corner. It’s your
    go. Oh, wait. Yeah, because he finished the heatbutt, so you go. LAURA: How much damage was that? MATT: Three points of damage. Every time you get
    hit, he does three points. LAURA: Okay, okay, okay. Oh, no, should I be mean? TRAVIS: “Should I be mean?” LAURA: I’m going to grab him after he hits my head
    and I’m going to try to knee him. MATT: Okay, go for it. Roll for an attack. LAURA: That’s good, that’s 23. MATT: Yeah, that definitely hits. LAURA: Four points of damage right between the
    legs. MATT: Another four points there. All right. “Ugh!”
    His eyes squint and roll backwards a bit and he goes down into a crouching position. (grunting)
    Rights himself in almost a Muay Thai stance. LAURA: Below the belt. MATT: Yeah, that’s 11. He tries to swing and you
    parry it off to the side without an issue. Go ahead and retort. LAURA: I’m going to grab his wrist and try to spin
    him around. MATT: Go for it. LAURA: 16. MATT: 16 hits! LAURA: Yeah! I’m going to grab him and try to grab
    both of his arms and hold him on to me. MATT: Because you’re grappling? LAURA: Yeah. MATT: Roll again for your athletics. LAURA: Oh no, that was really bad. Five. MATT: He rolled a natural one. Literally a natural
    one. He tries to squeeze out, but you’ve got a firm grip on his wrist and you pull him back in.
    You’re now holding him to you; he’s grabbed. LAURA: Say uncle, say uncle! MATT: “No, never!” It’s his turn. He’s going to go
    try to slam his head backwards into your face. Ooh, natural 18, that’s a 24. Take another three
    points of damage. Crack! It hits you. For a second, you’re afraid it knocked a tooth out, but
    you feel with your tongue and it’s still there. LAURA: Do I still have a hold of him? MATT: Yeah, he’s still grappled. LAURA: Ooh, ooh, I’m going to turn my head and try
    to hit him with my horn. MATT: Ooh, nice, roll for an attack. LAURA: Oh, that was cocked. Crazy cocked. 19! MATT: 19 hits, takes another four damage. Crack!
    It scrapes across his temple and it almost gouges an eye, and he turns and he’s like, “Ah! You’re
    rambunctious, aren’t you?” He’s going to attempt to throw you off over his shoulder, pull you into
    a roll. You get to make an athletics or acrobatics check against him as he tries to break from your
    grapple. TRAVIS: I got one gold on the blue one. Anyone
    want one gold on the blue one? LAURA: Oh no, six. SAM: I’ll take that bet! MATT: Breaks free and slams you onto your back.
    You’re now prone from the reversal, but it’s your round, so you can get up or attack if you want
    to. LAURA: Can I do a breakdancing move where I spin
    around and jump up? Like Arya did in that episode of Game of Thrones. MATT: Sure, yeah. SAM: Who? Did you say Mario? LAURA: Arya. MARISHA: What’s Avantika doing? MATT: She’s drinking and watching. One leg up on
    the table and she’s glancing over, watching this transpire. You’re going to sweep as you get up? LAURA: Yeah. MATT: Roll for attack. LAURA: 13. MATT: 13 does not hit. LAURA: No! MATT: You sweep and he leaps up and then, from the
    air, tries to come down onto your leg with the full force of his tiny gnomish body. Natural 20. TRAVIS: (groaning) MATT: We’ll say for the purposes of this, because
    the nature of the 20, we’ll make it double full damage, because it’s fist fights, that’s six
    damage to you from that. Crack! The leg and the knee doesn’t dislocate or pop out, but you can
    feel it get pushed to the limit and it hurts like a mother. Leaps up and like, “Not too bad! Come
    on, bring it!” One eye’s a little bit– not swollen, but it’s starting to squint from pain.
    Blood’s leaking out of his nose and his mouth and it’s smeared on one side of his cheek and he’s
    (chuckling). LAURA: You’re crazy, Sorris. I like you. MATT: “I like you too–” LAURA: Boom! Right in the face. 16 to hit! MATT: 16 hits. That’s another four damage on him.
    Crack, crack! This next series of hits come at him and he’s like, “Ha! Yeah, it’s nothing! I can take
    it! Bring it!” He’s going to come forward and try do a series of pummeling in your direction.
    Natural one. The sheer impact of the last blow seems to have knocked his block off, and he starts
    doing this series of pummeling in the wrong direction, instead pushing toward Caduceus. He
    moves out of the way. He batters at the side of his sleeve there and, “Ha! How’s that? Did I get
    her? Wait.” Looks around and finds you. “Hi.” Your turn. LAURA: I’m going to say: All right, all right, all
    right. We’re friends now, okay? Let’s not do any real damage to each other. I’m going to pat his
    head and cast Cure Wounds. ALL: Aww. SAM: We’re awwing. TRAVIS: He’s on the edge, finish him! LAURA: I don’t want to knock him out, he’s cute.
    1st-level. LIAM: You have mashed his hair spikes down. LAURA: That is six points of healing. TALIESIN: That’s two punches taken away. MATT: One and a half. LAURA: We’re friends now. MATT: He goes, “Huh. Thank you?” LAURA: You’re welcome. MATT: Make a persuasion check. LAURA: Oh no. Ooh, 21? MATT: He looks at you for a second. “Yeah. Good
    point. I could’ve taken you anyway.” LAURA: Yeah, no. MATT: “We’ll pick this up another day.” LAURA: All right. Hey! I made a friend! SAM: Yes, you did. Good job, Jester! TRAVIS: Yeah, and you kept all your teeth. LAURA and MARISHA: Pirates! MATT: He comes up and goes for a handshake, grabs
    your hand, pulls you and gives you a soft headbutt. It’s a little sore on both of you and
    both of you wince. “Pleasure to meet you. What’s “your name?” LAURA: The Little Sapphire. That’s my pirate
    name. MATT: “Okay. Sorris. Pleasure to meet you as
    well.” As you guys are having this conversation, you hear behind you (grunting, crashing). Another
    table behind is broken and you can see a person unconscious across the shattered pieces of wood,
    arms curled in t-rex style. TRAVIS: Nott, unconscious person down. SAM: Ooh! I’m going to go steal from them. Oh,
    wait, no, you can’t do that on this island. MARISHA: Is that Blues Traveler? SAM: It is the Traveler. MATT: The crowd goes, (cheering). Everyone who was
    mildly disappointed at the lack of finale to your fight has now focused on the other one that has
    completed with the smashing of furniture, the person on there left scrapped up and wrecked. The
    other individual, one eye swollen shut, square-jawed, burly-looking guy going, “Yeah!”
    Everyone cheers. TRAVIS: What’s the rest of Avantika’s crew doing?
    Are they in the scrap as well? MATT: They’re just watching. The scrap was only
    between two or three people, and one of them just went down. The other one called it off after that
    and the declared winner everyone’s briefly focusing on. Then as fast as everyone cared,
    everyone sat back down and they’re back to drinking. You get the sense in that moment this is
    not a rare occurrence around here. TRAVIS: Hourly flare-up. TALIESIN: It’s like someone ordered a special at
    an extremely expensive tiki bar. MARISHA and TALIESIN: Uk’otoa, Uk’otoa, Uk’otoa,
    huh! TRAVIS: Wow, where the fuck did you guys just go?
    I hope we’re going there after this show. TALIESIN and MARISHA: Go to Trader Sam’s. MARISHA: Where that mug came from! TALIESIN: That’s why I have my tiki mug today. LIAM: Caleb brings a big mug of ale and sits down
    close to Avantika and says, over this din: This is a big longshot, but you seem very well-traveled
    and well-researched. This place is crazy, but any place worth its salt has books. Why are you
    laughing at me? Why are you laughing at me? Such a straightforward question. Well, I can tell from
    your reaction that there is probably no good place to acquire a book, but you seem more educated than
    the normal sort– or people around me– so perhaps you have a suggestion for a scholar lost at sea? MATT: “It is a very curious question. I imagine
    there are probably some books. That wouldn’t be “what is commonly considered contraband or heavy
    resale value. Most of the time when you are “boarding a ship, you leave the books behind. If
    you’re looking for books, your best bet is to go “to the Sundry Square during the day.” LIAM: Sundry Square, during the day. MATT: “It’s about four blocks to the left after
    you leave the outside of here, just outside of the “shipyard. It’s where all the awnings and ships
    are.” LIAM: Should I be checking the trash bins for
    these, then? Or do you think someone might actually have them for sale? MATT: “You can certainly ask around. Maybe both, I
    don’t know.” LIAM: I’m jonesing pretty badly for a good book. TALIESIN: I’m looking for a blacksmith, actually,
    as well. MATT: “That is possibly a few around, if I
    recall.” TALIESIN: Somebody worth their salt, since “worth
    your salt” is a really nice term. That’s great. Worth their salt. Somebody worth their salt. TRAVIS: Just taken with the saying? SAM: He’s going to use that a lot? That phrase? TALIESIN: It’s worth my salt. MARISHA: Caduceus, how much is salt worth to you?
    Like on a scale of money to nothing? LIAM: Like a person’s worth. TALIESIN: Oh, I don’t know. I haven’t really
    thought about it at all, now that I think about it. That’s a good question. I mean, there’s so
    much salt around, to be fair. It would probably take a lot of salt to be worth something. MARISHA: Sure. TALIESIN: I mean, you could get it right out of
    the water. TRAVIS: Yeah, it’s a fairly benign saying. Don’t
    get too lost in it. TALIESIN: Everything is worth its salt at that
    point, really. It’s a terrible currency. SAM: Did he drink a lot? TRAVIS: I was wondering how empty that cup is. TALIESIN: Has anyone been watching me drink? TRAVIS: I was going to ask. TALIESIN: I have been nursing the same cup the
    entire time and have been fake-sipping it the entire night. I haven’t actually had a drop. TRAVIS: You had an ale or whatever everybody else
    is drinking? TALIESIN: Whatever they handed me. I’ve been doing
    this, to be fair, the entire time we’ve been together. MARISHA: He’s Bruce Wayne! Caduceus Wayne. TRAVIS: Caduceus Wayne? SAM and MARISHA: Caduce Wayne! MARISHA: I elbow Fjord and I sit down next to
    Avantika. LIAM: Oh jeez, take my chair, fine. I’ll go get
    another. MARISHA: Sorry, excuse me, sorry. So Avantika.
    What’s next for The Squalleater? MATT: “Well,” and she sits, looks around everyone
    at the table, and gestures for everyone to lean in a bit. “It looks like we are to, after a couple of
    days of travel and supply-gathering, make our way “northward to a location that has been brought to
    my attention by our quartermaster. There is a “likely chance that if there is some sort of
    treasure there, it would be of importance to our “mission. However, it is a salvage mission, meaning
    there will be some diving. So I am looking for a “few things to prepare for that so a few of us can
    comfortably make our way beneath the waves.” SAM: Into the water? MATT: “Beneath the water, my friend.” SAM: Do cannon-folk typically go on those trips,
    or do cannon-folk typically stay behind with the ship? TRAVIS: Gunner master, Nott, gunner master. SAM: Gunner master. MATT: “That is up to you. You are welcome to stay
    behind. However, if things go correctly, I don’t “think there will be any worry of drowning.” SAM: Oh. How can you promise that? MATT: “Trust me. I have a few connections that owe
    me a favor or two here on the island. Anyway, I “need a day to acquire what is necessary.
    Nevertheless–” At this point she looks up at somebody past you and goes, “We’re having a
    private discussion.” You turn and follow her eye line and you see a human female with curled blonde
    hair. The curls have fallen in the moisture and the rain from the outside, dressed in a thick,
    ragged, black coat, holding a cup, and she goes, “Aye, don’t worry about me. Just didn’t expect
    this shore to drag you in quite so soon.” There’s a moment of tension. LAURA: Do we recognize her? MATT: No, you have not seen this figure before.
    They both stare for a second, and she turns and walks off to a far table. TRAVIS: Was she directing that towards Avantika? MATT: Yeah. LAURA: Who was that? MARISHA: What? What did she say? Haven’t heard–
    didn’t expect this– what? MATT: “Don’t mind her. It’s Allison; she’s–
    what’s the word? A right cunt.” TALIESIN: Not Heather. Make a note. SAM: Friend of yours, or former friend? MATT: “Oh, best of friends. No, just a very nosy
    co-thief at sea. Doesn’t know where to stop poking “where it doesn’t belong.” LIAM: Former business associate? MATT: “No, former competitor. Anyway.” MARISHA: I immediately grab my purse and hold onto
    it. SAM: What purse? MARISHA: The thing I imagine most adventurers
    have. A little coin satchel. SAM: Oh, but not like a cute little– MARISHA: No, not a Dolce & Gabbana, no. Not a Kate
    Spade. TRAVIS: You mean a competitor in terms of sea
    space, or in terms of your faith? MATT: “No, we’ve crossed territories once or
    twice, and she has a habit of trying to embellish “truths to the Plank King. Anyway.” Hand me the
    map, if you don’t mind. Oh, map’s here, actually. SAM: I knew someone like that once. They would
    always go fishing and say that they caught something, but they never did. TALIESIN: A fisherman? SAM: Yes. MATT: Avantika lays a map out on the table. SAM: Ooh, we’ll put our weights down to weigh it
    down. MARISHA: No, there was a discussion. It’s coming. LAURA: Oh, yeah. Coasters are not heavy enough. TALIESIN: Here’s a cube. Have a cube. MATT: A cube will do. TALIESIN: There’s a cube. SAM: There’s a cube. MATT: As Avantika points it out, she shows the
    crew and says, “In two days travel, we will make “our way outside of the Dragshallow Reef, coasting
    in northward for protection to about here. We “begin looking for our salvage.” At which point,
    Orly, who’s glancing over the side, rubs his chin and goes, “Hmm. I don’t mean to question the
    captain’s m-m-main objective; however, that looks “like it’s right around where the Diver’s Grave
    m-m-may be.” TRAVIS: Diver’s Grave? MATT: She looks back and goes, “Perhaps, but does
    it spook you? Do ghost stories make you shiver, “turtle boy?” Orly glances back at her with a
    narrowed stare and goes, “As long as I’m staying “on the ship, I don’t m-m-mind.” He goes and sits
    back down at the table. LAURA: Do divers die there? MATT: At this point, Sorris goes, “Oh, is that
    where you’re going? You’re going over to the “Diver’s Grave?” TRAVIS: It would appear so, yeah. MATT: “Well, that’s certainly an off-limits
    location for most salvaging, thanks to the cursed “woman, eh? Do you know much about your history?” TALIESIN: I’m hoping this is a place where
    somebody named Rachel Diver may have bought a piece of land or something. MATT: “Close, but not at all.” MARISHA: Yeah, or Sophie. It’s always a Sophie. MATT: Make a history check. You can with
    disadvantage, because of your lack of experience with the naval history. LAURA: Would I have heard ghost stories? MATT: You can make a history check as well. TRAVIS: 15. MATT: Okay. LAURA: 19! LIAM: 13. MATT: Doesn’t quite catch your attention. You’ve
    heard mention of the Diver’s Grave, as it was a series of poems from a book you once read. The
    thing that comes to mind is the name Dashilla. You instinctively mouth it– Dashilla– and he goes,
    “Ah, Dashilla the Dreadful. You know about this one, eh?” LAURA: I mean, I read a poem about her. MATT: “Ah. Poem, I’ve not known, but maybe the
    song you’ve heard.” Some of the crew around nod, remembering, and he goes and grabs his cup and
    claps it twice to the table, and the crew begins to filter in as the song progresses, and he
    goes– MARISHA: If there’s not 12 people that pop out
    behind this curtain, I’m going to be disappointed. MATT: So he finishes the song. (laughter) TALIESIN: I was waiting for him to go, “Bill
    Murray.” MATT: Sorris goes, (singing) “Where once the
    waters rolled calmly by, where ocean’s heart did “sing, there stalked a lass with a hungry eye and
    claws that grasp and wring. With lantern lure of a “glimmer pot, with treasure in her eyes, below they
    swam to the gold they thought would await them as “their prize.” Everyone starts clamoring together
    with the third verse, (singing) “Yet each of them “went to surely die, their graves to not be found.
    For Dashilla and her hungry eye collects the lost “and drowned.” There’s a moment where they all
    begin to clamor the drinks together and clink them and begin to drink them. (applause) TRAVIS: Yeah! That’s fortuitous. LAURA: Her hungry eye. TRAVIS: Her claws. MARISHA: Her lantern light. LAURA: Doesn’t she have a ring or something that
    you said in the song? MARISHA: Yeah, I heard something about a ring, and
    treasure in her eyes. MATT: He looks confused, “So you don’t know the
    poem or the song.” LAURA: No, I know it, I just didn’t– I mean, I
    read it like, one time, a long time ago. MATT: “Do you want a reprisal?” LAURA: Yeah. MATT: (clears throat, singing) “Where once the
    waters rolled calmly by, where ocean’s heart did “sing. There stalked a lass with a hungry eye, and
    claws that grasp and wring. With lantern lure of a “glimmer pot, with treasure in their eyes. Below
    they swam to the gold they thought would await “them as their prize. Yet each of them went to
    surely die, their graves to not be found. For “Dashilla and her hungry eye collects the lost and
    drowned.” TRAVIS: Single eye, huh? TALIESIN: Damn! TRAVIS: Anyone else getting a bad feeling about
    that? LAURA: No, why would you ever get a bad feeling
    about that? SAM: (record scratching) Remix! TRAVIS: (low-pitched) Break it, break it, break it
    down. LAURA: Her hungry eye. MATT: He goes, “But that’s just an old wives’
    tale, you know? A myth.” TRAVIS: Sorris, is that somewhere you’ve been to?
    You seem like a very fortune-seeking type. MATT: “Well, I sail over it, we just don’t really
    salvage that.” TRAVIS: You don’t stop, either? MATT: “What?! In the middle of the ocean? Why?!
    That’d be daft! Good luck.” Looks at Avantika, (singsong) “Good luck! With the missus,” and turns
    around– SAM: With the missus? Oh. The lady– LAURA: Oh, Dashilla. MATT: You surmise that’s who he’s referring to.
    Avantika goes, “Don’t pay him any mind. It is a “myth, and if it’s not, well, we just finished
    tangling with a hydra and an entire island of snake “people. You’re not seriously worried about a
    woman, eh?” LAURA: Well, we didn’t fight them under the water. LIAM: Yeah, I’m more concerned about the waves.
    You have experience with this? Diving? MATT: “I should have an answer to at least most of
    our troubles by the morrow. Just be patient.” LIAM: Yes or no question. TRAVIS: You know, most myths are based off of some
    sort of fact. We don’t happen to know what the song thinks this dreadful creature is, do we? MATT: “Not any more than you would.” LAURA: She’s an underwater banshee. For sure! TRAVIS: Is that a thing? LAURA: Mm-hmm. Yeah. TRAVIS: You can’t really sing underwater, so how’s
    that work? LAURA: It sounds a lot like glubby glubs. (underwater glubbing) TRAVIS: I love that everyone did that at the same
    time. That’s all I needed. Well, great. We’ll find this solution to the diving in the morning, and
    then in a day or two we’ll make our way? MATT: “That is the idea.” TRAVIS: Do you need any help securing this
    solution? MATT: “No, it’s best I do it alone. It’s more of a
    older business relationship. I don’t want to make “him think that this is a, how do you say,
    untrustworthy trade, if you will.” TRAVIS: Well, being that you’ll be out, anything
    you need done for the ship or the crew while you’re away, as your quartermaster? MATT: “Well, oversee the repairs to The Mistake, I
    believe they’ve begun before the night is over for “a bit. We probably will not need it for this
    endeavor, so it will begin and when we return from “Darktow it should be complete.” TRAVIS: Wonderful. All right. And your crew? Do I
    need to keep an eye on anyone? MATT: “Not in particular. They’ll be looking
    around here, they’ll be preparing. Gather their “materials, anything you think you require for the
    trip at sea go ahead and gather it, go amongst the “Sundry Square, purchase what is required, and then
    hopefully within the next 48 hours we’ll be back “out on the waves.” MARISHA: 48 hours. TRAVIS: Wonderful. TALIESIN: What’s Allison been up to? MATT: Drinking in the back, having a conversation
    with somebody and keeping one eye over at the table. Seems just perturbed. Not directly intent,
    but occasionally narrowing her eyes in the direction of Avantika. TRAVIS: Being that this is our first time in
    Darktow, I would like to see the rest of the area. Would anyone care to join me for a stroll? MARISHA: Ooh, night walk? TALIESIN: That sounds like a great idea. LAURA: Sure. MATT: “It is good, if you are going to do a night
    walk alone, or together as a group is much better “than alone.” TALIESIN: What should we be looking out for? Is
    there some sort of natural dangers, unnatural dangers? TRAVIS: Back corners, alleys? MATT: “Well, the laws say you’re not to steal from
    another pirate in here, but only if they’re caught.” MARISHA: Oh, I forgot. LAURA: Oh, you totally could have gotten the stuff
    from that guy. SAM: (frustrated noise) MATT: “But there are others out there perhaps who
    see fresh faces and think, well, easy prey. Best “not to cause a huge commotion immediately after
    arriving. Nobody does that, right?” TRAVIS: No. LAURA: Definitely wouldn’t. TRAVIS: Who would be so foolish? Little would they
    know, they’d be tangling with Avantika’s crew, and that’s something they don’t want to mess with,
    right? MATT: “One would think, yes. Anyway, I am a bit
    tipsy, and I’m going to find myself an evening’s “rest. The rest of the night and tomorrow is yours.
    Good eve.” SAM:Bon soir.MARISHA: Good night. LAURA: Bye. MATT: As she gets up, some of the rest of the crew
    stands up, you see Bouldergut in the back stand up as soon as the captain stands up, and goes like,
    “We going?” “Come on, this way.” Walks by, puts her hand on your shoulder, and into your ear,
    Fjord, as she whispers, she goes, “I’m staying “upstairs, second room on the left,” and leaves. LAURA: Did any of us see that? MATT: Make a perception check. LAURA: (laughter) TALIESIN: Oh, that’s a bad roll. TRAVIS: You see everything, why are you even
    rolling? TALIESIN: 11. MARISHA: It feels pretty public. LAURA: 15. TRAVIS: You’ve got fucking Mad-Eye Moody’s eye
    where it’s on me the whole time and the other one’s doing its own thing. MATT: Actually, Caduceus, just from his passive
    perception, has seen this. What did you roll? LAURA: 15. MATT: 15? You see there’s a momentary pause as she
    walks by, and the hand on the shoulder that catches your attention.Youcan see the lips
    move and make out the essence of the conversation. The rest of her crew slowly gets up, and some of
    them stay to drink, some of them go out to find their way in the night. MARISHA: I need to pee. Anyone know where the
    bathroom is? LIAM: Pretty sure it’s anywhere. TALIESIN: Outside. MATT: You do recall, walking through the city, a
    number of individuals stopping at the edge of the docks and pissing into the ocean. SAM: In Halfling I will say to Beauregard: Hey,
    don’t you think we should go talk to that Allison person? MARISHA: I was already on it, I respond back in
    Halfling. SAM: Can I tag along? MARISHA: Mm-hmm. Jester? LAURA: Mm? MARISHA: Do you have a pen and paper I could
    borrow? SAM: She asks in Halfling. LAURA: I don’t understand what– MARISHA: Sorry, got caught in a language loop. Do
    you have any pencil and paper, or pen and ink? LAURA: Yeah! Well, of course I do, I always have a
    lot of stuff on me, here you go. MARISHA: Just like a scrap, thank you. I scribble,
    “Meet in the alley” on the piece of paper. Is there an alley? I’m assuming there’s an alley
    behind this. MATT: I mean– SAM: There’s no streets, it’s all alleys. MATT: It’s entirely crafted of alleys. No, I mean,
    it’s not very jam-packed around this particular tavern/inn, but there are some nearby buildings
    where there are alleys. This place is surrounded by streets because it’s right there on the front
    near the shipyard. MARISHA: “Meet in the back alley.” To be
    specific. SAM: Vague directions. MATT: Okay, and what do you do? MARISHA: Will you go with me to the ladies’ room
    so we can powder our noses together? SAM: Sure. I love a good powder. MARISHA: Let’s go powder. As I walk out, I shake
    Alice’s hand, say: Nice to meet you. And palm her the piece of paper that’s folded very tightly. MATT: Okay. As you take her hand, she pulls back.
    You get a closer look at her, there’s this heavy scar over one eye that keeps the eye mostly
    closed. You can see there looks to be a ruined eye beneath there that’s healed over and is not
    functional. She wears it proudly as a point of intimidation or at least a badge of whatever gave
    her that scar. As she pulls back a little bit, her other hand going towards the dagger on the side
    that’s now revealed from behind her coat. You palm her the note and she looks and takes it– MARISHA: Give her a wink and walk off. MATT: She crumples it with a terse look and lets
    it fall to the ground. LIAM: Ooh! Cold. MARISHA: I go– and I walk out. She’ll read it,
    right? SAM: Where’s the bathroom? TALIESIN: I’m going to get some air. TRAVIS: Ridiculous. SAM: We just walked across the whole place. I
    haven’t seen the bathroom once. MARISHA: Let’s go around to the side of the
    building. SAM: Oh? We’re just going to take a shit in the
    alley? MARISHA: We are a hundred percent going to take a
    shit in the alley. LIAM: Here comes the fanart. I hope. MATT: You guys walk out into the cold night air.
    The heavy mist has fallen across Darktow and you can barely see beyond the outskirts of the city
    where the ocean begins. You can still hear the waters coming in against the rocks on the outside
    of the island, but you cannot actually see where the water connects. Beyond that, you can see the
    outline of the ship masts that are set at the end of the shipyard that are vanishing into the mist
    that surround you. What do you do? MARISHA: I go towards the back “alley”. MATT: Okay. You find what would be considered an
    alley behind the Inn and Tavern. MARISHA: I show Nott where to take a shit. I wait
    either for the rest of my friends or for Alice to eventually read the damn thing– SAM: Is it Alice or Allison? LAURA: I thought it was Allison. MARISHA: Allison. TRAVIS: She’s on a nickname basis already. SAM: Maybe that’s why she didn’t listen to you.
    Because you called her the wrong name. TRAVIS: She’s like, “We’re not there yet! We’re
    not fucking Alice yet.” MARISHA: It works half of the time. LAURA: That’s so pretty. MARISHA: It’s super awesome. SAM: If she comes out here, what are we going to
    say to her? MARISHA: I just want to figure out what her beef
    is with Avantika. Maybe she can be our key– SAM: But she’s going to ask who we are. What do we
    tell her? That we’re disgruntled members of her crew? MARISHA: Yeah! SAM: But she can turn us in! That’s terrible. We
    should say that we’re– MARISHA: We can get information from her first. We
    don’t have to necessarily always give information upfront to get information and we can always lie. SAM: I’m not good at that. MARISHA: I am. SAM: Okay. MARISHA: Yeah. SAM: Yeah, you’re right. You’re very charismatic.
    We’re going to be fine. MARISHA: I feel like that’s slightly underhanded. SAM: No! It seems that way because I’m making a
    face because I’m halfway through a dump right now. MARISHA: I don’t break eye contact. SAM and MARISHA: We got this. TRAVIS: Oh! The hand touch! No! SAM: I’m ready. MARISHA: All right. TALIESIN: Maybe that is better. LAURA: We’ve reached a new level. TRAVIS: Maybe thatisbetter, yeah. LIAM: (as Nott) All right! I’m done! Hand me that
    dead cat! MATT: Here we have the direct connection from
    campaign one to campaign two: Sam has taken a shit live with both characters in-narrative.
    Congratulations. SAM: You’re welcome, Gary Gygax. MATT: What are the rest of you doing? Caduceus,
    you went out for some fresh air. TALIESIN: I went out. I’m standing by the front
    door, bouncer-like, and trying to get my bearings, take a look around, see what the vibe of this
    place is. TRAVIS: I’m come join him out front. MATT: Jester? LAURA: I’m staring at this milk that I ordered and
    it’s really disgusting. And I– LIAM: You’re not going to drink that, are you? LAURA: No, it has lumps in it. LIAM: Yeah. Well, it’s a lumpy place. LAURA: Yeah. LIAM: You doing okay? You seem a little off to
    me. LAURA: What? I seem off? LIAM: Yeah, you seem distracted around this
    woman. LAURA: Oh. I just, well– MARISHA: (sneezes) MATT and LAURA: Bless you. MARISHA: I’m sorry. LAURA: I don’t like her very much. LIAM: Oh, is it because she’s a murderer? LAURA: No. LIAM: Oh. I don’t like that part about her. LAURA: Oh, but we’re all kind of murderers
    sometimes, aren’t we? LIAM: I don’t think that all of us are murderers. LAURA: No? LIAM: Are you a murderer? LAURA: I mean, we have killed some people. LIAM: Yeah, but that’s a very specific thing. You
    know, if your life is in danger, that’s one thing. You know, if something happens in the heat of the
    moment or there’s danger in both directions. Murder is premeditated. That’s a very different
    thing. I find it hard to believe that you have killed someone with premeditation. I could be
    wrong but– LAURA: No, I don’t. I haven’t ever done that. I’ve
    done some pretty shady stuff though. LIAM: That I believe. LAURA: Have you done some shady stuff? LIAM: Yes, I have. LAURA: Have you done stuff that’s pirate-y before
    you were a pirate? LIAM: Yeah. Sort of. LAURA: What’s the shadiest thing you ever did? LIAM: Oh. Well, Nott and I have robbed people for
    sure. People with not a lot of money so that we can eat. LAURA: That’s okay, though. LIAM: That did that we did to you when we first
    met you. You know, we turn one thing into another and then we go stay at an inn and buy food and
    then it turns back into pennies and that’s not so good, but when you’re starving. LAURA: But it is a really cool trick. They got to
    see magic. LIAM: They didn’t know it, though. LAURA: That’s true. It all balances out. You’ve
    done really good things, too. LIAM: Yeah. LAURA: Do you want some of this lumpy milk? LIAM: No. Do you want any ale? LAURA: No. LIAM: Boy, this is quite a predicament that we’ve
    gotten ourselves into. How the hell– we were visiting your mother. Your mother was so lovely– LAURA: I know! She’s so nice! And now we’re
    pirates and I’m never going to see her again. LIAM: That’s not true. LAURA: It’s really possible, Caleb. What if we can
    never go home? LIAM: We’ll get you home. We’re here– this is
    Fjord’s thing. We’re his support. We’re here to help him out. Beauregard and I don’t want to be
    here forever either, I don’t think. I know that I do not want to be in this place or on the sea
    forever. It’s interesting. LAURA: Nott definitely doesn’t want to be in the
    sea. LIAM: Nott is like a cat clinging to the ceiling.
    She’s like a cat on a hot tin roof. LAURA: I think Caduceus doesn’t like the water,
    either basically because it tried to kill him a few times already. LIAM: Really none of us like it here but Fjord,
    kind of. LAURA: I don’t even know if he likes it a lot. LIAM: There’s parts of it that he likes. LAURA: Like Avantika. LIAM: I don’t know. You’re sweet on him, yeah? LAURA: I don’t know. LIAM: Yeah. LAURA: It feels funny. LIAM: How do you mean? LAURA: Well. You know, when you really like
    somebody, but then you start to know them, and you go, “Do I like them or do I like what I thought
    they were?” and then you don’t know? LIAM: I think so. LAURA: And then you think that they are flirting
    with you, but then you found out that probably weren’t, you know? MARISHA: Or just saving your life. LAURA: So you feel kind of sad about it and maybe
    a little stupid. LIAM: That’s a little out of my realm of
    experience. I’m sorry. LAURA: You had a girlfriend before though, yeah?
    (whispering) You said her name when we were dancing and then I put you to sleep and you said
    her name again. LIAM: I don’t forget anything. LAURA: Was she pretty? LIAM: She was handsome. LAURA: Was she a boy? LIAM: No. I said she. LAURA: Oh. Okay. LIAM: She was handsome. LAURA: I’m trying to get an image of her in my
    brain here. LIAM: Yeah? LAURA: Did she have like a really good nose or
    something? LIAM: The best. LAURA: Really? LIAM: For me. LAURA: You’re mysterious, Caleb, you know that? LIAM: That was a long time ago, anyway. Let’s just
    focus on getting out of this place away from that woman. LAURA: And now she’s saying we all have to take
    the same boat. How are we going to get away from her? LIAM: Is there anyone paying attention to us? MATT: Make a perception check. TALIESIN: Where are you guys talking? LAURA: Just literally right there at the table. TALIESIN: Oh, never mind. LIAM: Or like just leaning in a table together
    very low.Elf. 11. MATT: Okay. The crowd is pretty vibrant around
    here. A quick glance around you, you don’t see anybody specifically paying attention or
    interested. LIAM: Well, I don’t care. I’m pulling out the wire
    and I’m putting it in my mouth. We’ll take care of her if we have to. (coughing) LAURA: Are you okay? LIAM: Yeah, just a cough. A cold. I want to get
    the hell off this island eventually, but we’re here now. Tomorrow– LAURA: Tomorrow, we find some books! LIAM: Yes! We’ll find– no. Probably not. But
    we’ll get sorted. We’ll make the best of this place. We’ll help Fjord figure out his shit, I
    suppose. LAURA: Yeah, that’s important to him. LIAM: Yeah. Then we’ll get out of here and then
    you can reassess back on dry land. LAURA: Yeah. Thanks, Caleb. LIAM: Thanks for not leaving me on the street like
    a drunk. LAURA: (giggles) I thought about it. It would have
    been pretty funny for you to wake up, but I like you more than that. Are we sleeping on our boat?
    Where should I go? LIAM: I think we’ll probably going to get a room
    somewhere here. Is this place an inn or a tavern? I did not even look coming in. MATT: Glancing now, looking through the back,
    there is this staircase that winds up to a secondary floor and it looks like there probably
    is lodging. LIAM: Did Avantika leave or did she go up? MATT: Avantika left for the moment. TALIESIN: I’ll have to secure the things– LIAM: Probably to shit in an alleyway. TRAVIS: You’re up front, right? TALIESIN: I’m sitting out front. I’m doing the
    door. MATT: What are you guys doing? LAURA: I guess just sitting in here for a while. MATT: Caleb? LIAM: Just drinking until– TRAVIS: I put my hand on Caduceus’ shoulder. How
    you doing? TALIESIN: I think I’m doing all right. I’m just
    contemplating where we’re going from here. TRAVIS: You seemed a little more at ease. I’ll
    lean in a little bit. TALIESIN: I am a little more at ease. TRAVIS: You do much drinking in there? I’m not
    really getting the fumes on your breath. TALIESIN: I’ve only gotten drunk once in my life. TRAVIS: Really? TALIESIN: And that was because of Nott. TRAVIS: Is there a reason for that? TALIESIN: I thought I’d try. It didn’t agree with
    me. TRAVIS: What happens when you drink? TALIESIN: Everything hurts and it’s violently
    offensive to the body on every level. That stuff’s disgusting. Just awful. TRAVIS: Did you have stuff in your cup, right? You
    don’t have to fake it. You can just– TALIESIN: Well, it feels polite and not everybody
    is as understanding as your friends, you know? TRAVIS: Right. TALIESIN: I just sit in the corner and I listen to
    everything that I can for as long as I can and it got a little noisy in there and thought I’d get a
    little air. TRAVIS: Anything popping up on that special radar
    of yours? TALIESIN: Oh yeah. This place is dangerous. She’s
    dangerous. TRAVIS: Yeah. That she is. Should we grab the
    others and go explore for a bit? TALIESIN: I think that’s a good idea. And Fjord?
    You know why everybody’s doing this. Why we’re all here, right? TRAVIS: Yep. I mean, I think. TALIESIN: I think you know it. I just want to
    point it because that woman, she doesn’t care what any of us want. I’m sure she’d be interested, but
    it’s way low on her priorities and I don’t trust anybody who puts other people’s needs that low on
    the list, and you should keep mind of that while you’re getting in bed with them, so to speak. TRAVIS: Is anybody out here in earshot? MATT: Outside at the moment? No. TALIESIN: Nope. TRAVIS: Yeah, listen. About that. Let’s just keep
    it right between the amigos, all right? Just because– TALIESIN: What part of the body is the amigos? TRAVIS: No. That’s us, right? One amigo, two
    amigo. You and I are amigos. TALIESIN: Okay. TRAVIS: It’ll be our thing. Like we’re bunkees. We
    share– TALIESIN: Amigos. We share amigos. TRAVIS: No. We’re not going to share amigos. We
    are the amigos. TALIESIN: That’s even better. TRAVIS: Sharing amigos is a whole other– yeah. TALIESIN: I think I get it. I’m not going to talk
    out of turn and I trust your intentions, so– TRAVIS: Well, actually, that’s kind of what I
    wanted to talk to you about. You’re real good at picking up on little things, yeah? TALIESIN: You’re asking if I can tell you’re
    conflicted? TRAVIS: Heh, no, I think that’s pretty clear. TALIESIN: You’d be amazed, but all right. TRAVIS: I’m just letting you know I’m trying to
    keep her close. I feel like this whole thing’s getting a little out of sorts and the best way to
    keep a small finger on the pulse of things is to– TALIESIN: Sure. I’m so glad you put it that way.
    You’re a good man, Fjord, so be careful, because I imagine it’s a little out of character being
    honest and truthful with somebody in a deceptive way. It can muddle a good man up whereas it
    doesn’t muddle a bad man up. TRAVIS: Yeah. Haven’t been very good at it so
    far. TALIESIN: That’s one of the reasons why I like
    you. TRAVIS: Thank you. TALIESIN: Here for you, man. I’ve been learning to
    swim. TRAVIS: Yeah, more of that to come. Where’s the
    rest of these chuckle-fucks? TALIESIN: Oh, two are mysteriously vanished. I
    think they were mumbling something about trying to find an alley– MARISHA: Nott, will you stand guard now, because
    now I have to take a shit. SAM: Okay. MARISHA: It’s been that long. MATT: For the record, you guys do wait for about
    an hour and a half, two hours– no sign of Allison. SAM: Do you think we should go back in? TALIESIN: We don’t take that long, I think 30
    minutes is– MATT: Right, I’m just letting them know. That’s
    how long they would wait before they know that she that she’s not coming. SAM: All right, I guess we’ll go back inside,
    then? MARISHA: Two more minutes. SAM: Sure. Do your business. What– TRAVIS: Head down, huh? Contemplation. SAM: What do you think of our pirate vessel so
    far, of our pirate mission? Are you having fun? LIAM: If ever you’re going to squat on that chair
    in a perch, this is it. (laughter) MARISHA: Okay, what was your question? SAM: Nothing, we can go back in– MARISHA: All right, let’s go. TALIESIN: Release. MATT: You all make your way, gathering once more
    in The Bloated Cup. (laughter) TALIESIN: That’s where you’re supposed to go,
    god! MATT: Right back around. Oh, man. TALIESIN: I love you so much. You give so much. (laughter) MATT: All right, so what do you guys do? TALIESIN: I want to take a night walk. MARISHA: Night walk! Night hike. TRAVIS: (singing) I want to take a night walk–
    that’s not a song. LAURA: All of us together? SAM: Yeah, let’s go for a walk. TRAVIS: We’ll poke our heads back in and go–
    We’ll wave them out. TALIESIN: The crew should also have some place to
    sleep. Let’s make sure everybody is taken care of. SAM: They can go back to the boat, right? TALIESIN: They’re having a bad time– what do you
    guys want? MATT: Orly seems to be playing the mother hen with
    Marius playing assistant to that. TALIESIN: Mr. Orly, we feel terrible about
    everything that’s going on. We want to make you guys as comfortable as possible through this
    deeply inconvenient situation we’ve all found ourselves in. MATT: “I would be lying if it wasn’t deeply
    inconvenient.” TALIESIN: Appreciate your honesty. TRAVIS: (whispering) Ask him about the Diver’s
    Grave. TALIESIN: What would not be an insult– LAURA: I hit his hand. High five! TALIESIN: Like that– I know that would be an
    insult– but what would not be an– How many kids are here? MATT: “If we’re staying behind, I’d say give me
    about a hundred gold to watch over the nest around “here. When you return, we’ll hopefully– I
    understand, perhaps, you m-m-might be coming back “for us?” TALIESIN: Without question. MATT: “Then I’ll return whatever was not spent.” TALIESIN: That’s a good idea. MARISHA: I’ve got 50 gold on that. TRAVIS: I’ll get the other 50. TALIESIN: Thank you, kids. We are– unless
    something goes tragically wrong– we expect to be returning, and I imagine you’ll hear word if
    things go tragically wrong. MATT: Marius comes over and goes, “Right, now,
    hoping no tragedy, just come back and get us off “this fucking hell-hole.” LAURA: Well, if we don’t come back, can’t you take
    the Mistake and go home? MATT: “If you don’t come back, I don’t know.” TALIESIN: How long do we expect to be gone for? MATT: Travel from here to there and back, about
    four or five days round. LAURA: Two weeks, if we’re not back in two
    weeks– TALIESIN: If it’s two weeks, the ship is yours. MATT: “All right. Well, I wish you all m-m-much
    luck.” TALIESIN: I appreciate that. Hopefully you will
    not have to play a funeral dirge for us. MATT: “I am hoping that is never the case. Guess
    I’ll just make some coin in the interim.” TALIESIN: That’s fair. TRAVIS: If I may, Orly, you seem to be very
    familiar with the Diver’s Grave and the song. Do you know anything more specific of it and
    creatures that might be in that area? Things to look out for? MATT: “I mean, standard deep-ocean folk.” TRAVIS: Deep-ocean folk? MATT: “Sharks.” MARISHA: (whispering) Mermaids. MATT: “Other underwater beasts.” TALIESIN: What’s a mermaid? MATT: “Perhaps m-m-mermaids and other such
    dangers.” TALIESIN: How many teeth does a mermaid have–?
    What is that? LAURA: Mermaids are part pretty people and part
    fish people. TALIESIN: Those are both very dangerous. LAURA: Well! Yeah. TRAVIS: Any good things about the area that you
    care to share? MATT: “Probably some worthwhile loot there amongst
    the sediment.” TRAVIS: Right. TALIESIN: Any idea how long ships have been going
    down in that region? MATT: “Oh, a few hundred years, maybe?” LIAM: A few hundred years? Is there some sort of
    weather pattern or natural phenomenon that is responsible for this? MATT: “No, ships go down all over the coast.” LIAM: But there aren’t creepy stories about every
    inch of it, is there? MATT: “There are quite a number of creepy stories
    on every part of this here coast.” LIAM: Fair point. SAM: Do you know how deep it is to the bottom
    there? Is it deep, deep ocean, or just medium-ocean? MATT: “Can’t say I do.” SAM: All right. MATT: “M-m-my apologies.” TALIESIN: Thank you for your time, and thank you
    for your trust. MATT: “Come back.” TALIESIN: Working on it. TRAVIS: All right, who are we missing? MARISHA: Night hike. We’re all here. TRAVIS: Why are you guys wiping your hands on your
    pants? MARISHA: Don’t worry about it. SAM: It’s fine. TRAVIS: Okay. Who wants to go explore? LAURA: Let’s go. SAM: Let’s go explore! LIAM: What are we looking for? Are we just taking
    it in? MARISHA: We’re looking for fresh air. TRAVIS: Yeah, I figured we’ll use the night air to
    our advantage, acclimate a little bit. TALIESIN: Let’s take a walk. Let’s see what there
    is to see. I’m excited about this. LIAM: Learn the city. TALIESIN: Yeah. MATT: Yasha leans in and goes, “If there is any
    trouble, should I…?” TRAVIS: Oh, if there is trouble, let’s try and
    resolve it– well… MATT: “I trust you, just–” MARISHA: Gauge it as it comes? TRAVIS: Yeah. MATT: “Tell me when you want–” TRAVIS: The Judge? Will do. It’s so intimidating
    when she says it like that. MARISHA: It is. LAURA: Can I have taken, I’m assuming, a short
    rest and heal up from my fight while we were all chilling here? MATT: Sure. MARISHA: We should get a wig for the Judge like
    the Plank King has. TRAVIS: For the sword? MARISHA: Yeah. TRAVIS and LIAM: A wig? MARISHA: Just throwing it out there. SAM: Sort of like a golf club cover? TALIESIN: Like a tea-cozy. A sword-cozy. MATT: Okay. You guys leave the tavern. TRAVIS: Up away from the docks. MATT: Okay. As you exit– Caduceus, you notice
    this– but Jester, as everyone’s leaving, you to the back of it, you feel a hand grab your arm for
    a minute. You look over to the side, and you may not have noticed earlier, but Vera had been in the
    inn, in the tavern vicinity. She pulls you back from the rest of the group for a second and looks
    you in the eye with this intense stare. You can see the wrinkles on the sides of her face pushing
    into this tight crow’s nest on each side, her irises bloodshot. She goes, “He would not be the
    first she’s left in ruin, and he would not be the “last. I will take care of him if he cannot.” She
    releases you and spins around and walks off to her room. TALIESIN: I caught a bit of that, right? MATT: You saw them discuss, but you weren’t– At
    the point of talking and looking, you wouldn’t have made out the words necessarily. LAURA: (whispering) Whoa. MATT: You guys are here in the open night air.
    You’re pushing midnight, here at Darktow. LAURA: It smells like poop out here! TRAVIS: Checking the bottom of my shoes, like:
    What did we step in? Why is it–? SAM: The sea breeze. At night, it’s a
    land-breeze. TALIESIN: Actually, I have to stop really quickly
    and use the bathroom. There’s these little outhouses over in the corner right here that drop
    straight down into the– TRAVIS: Outhouse, campaign two. Here we go. TALIESIN: Yeah. It’s like the tower bridge. SAM: Is anyone on the streets? LIAM:Ja, and how well-lit is it out here? MARISHA: Yeah, who’s watching? MATT: It’s pretty misty. There are not heavy
    clouds in the sky, and the moon seems to be not a full moon, but it seems to be fairly bright, but
    because of the mist, it diffuses. There is this general faint moonlight throughout the entire
    vicinity of the town. What that does is it makes distant visibility a little harder, much like fog
    lights at a distance. There are a number of patrolling individuals– no uniform to them, but
    they walk around, torch in hand, looking through the streets, keeping an eye. They’re armed,
    armored, but haphazard and no uniform. MARISHA: This is the Revelry? MATT: Everyone here seems to be a part of the
    Revelry– including yourselves now. LAURA: Keep your hands on your coin purses. SAM: Okay, if we’re going to talk about these
    things, let’s use some code words. Don’t say her name, say a different name. TRAVIS: Like? LAURA: Tiffany. SAM: Yes, Tiffany. MARISHA: She’s kind of like a Tiffany. TRAVIS: Okay, Tiffany. And? SAM: The name of the ship. TRAVIS: Which ship? SAM: Tiffany’s ship. LAURA: That’s the name: Tiffany’s Ship. SAM: Tiffany’s Ship is the name of Tiffany’s
    ship. MARISHA: That makes it clear. TRAVIS: How will they crack this if they hear us? SAM: That’s all the code we need, all right. TRAVIS: How do we reference the–? MARISHA: We call it the– TRAVIS: The Apricot. SAM: The Apricot. MARISHA: The Apricot. SAM: Anything else before we get into this? MARISHA: Wait, is the Apricot this, or is the
    Apricot the tiny Tiffany Ship? TRAVIS: Nope, it’s this. MARISHA: It’s this, okay. LAURA: Your heart? The Apricot is your heart? TRAVIS: Say that again? TALIESIN: It’s the tip of the tiny Tiffany Ship. SAM: All right, so, how will we deal with
    Tiffany? MARISHA: Holy shit! TALIESIN: Which one’s Tiffany? TRAVIS: Let’s walk-and-talk about Tiffany. SAM: Of course we’re walking-and-talking. MARISHA: I’m keeping an eye open for every
    suspicious-looking asshole. LAURA: Tiffany can be invisible though, you guys. SAM: Everyone do this. TRAVIS: Tiffany doesn’t know that we’re talking
    about her. SAM: She went to bed, she’s fine. LAURA: I’m going to keep an eye out to see if the
    mist ever parts around us. MATT: Okay. Both you and Beau make perception
    checks, please, since you’re both keeping eyes out. TRAVIS: Come on! SAM: She won’t know we’re talking about her
    because we’re using a new name, Tiffany, so she’s not even going to know. TALIESIN: 26. MATT: Okay. You’re keeping a gauge on any of the
    wandering, patrolling guards to make sure as to not to speak too loudly or in the presence of
    anyone; conversation either shifting temporarily or coming to a lull and walking by in silence, but
    you manage to snake your way through a relatively quiet town beyond the various taverns this late at
    night. TRAVIS: A lot of store fronts and things that are
    closed up for the night. MATT: You do wander through what you assume to be
    the Sundry Square eventually, through this wandering. There is a makeshift pavilion where
    it’s dotted with tables and crates under ratty awnings and canopies, but it’s all closed and
    dark. There’s no lights. It looks like none of the materials for sale are left behind. It’s mainly
    just a structure and materials are probably brought there in the morning and are placed out
    for trade, sell, or whatever. LAURA: Don’t you think it’s weird that someone
    would be a pirate and they would come here because they were a pirate and then they change their mind
    and decide to be a shopkeeper here instead? TRAVIS: No. Maybe they were looking for a new
    environment and they found exactly what they were looking for. LIAM: Maybe they thought they were tough and
    strong, and they were not as tough and strong as they thought, so now they sell rope. MATT: Make a history check. MARISHA: It feels like a farmer’s market. It feels
    like certain people sell things whenever they got them. TRAVIS: Ooh, natural 17, for 19. LIAM: 12. MATT: You do know Darktow, before it was taken by
    pirates about 45 years or so beforehand, it was just another city of the Clovis Concord. It
    belonged to the Menagerie Coast, and it was one of the central port stops for a lot of the trade
    routes making their way to the coast. Then it was taken by the Revelry, and they reinforced it and
    made it defensible. They didn’t slaughter everyone there, because they weren’t there to kill
    everyone. They were there to take it over. They killed those who were, in their opinion,
    incorrectly placed in charge, any dissenters, and then anybody who agreed to join the Revelry, “Join
    or Die” type circumstance, everyone who had previously been at the island were absorbed into
    the Revelry. Some of them have continued their life there, some of them, their bloodline has
    continued to be those that maintain other forms of business. Not everyone is technically a pirate;
    there are a lot of members of the Revelry that are just civilians of Darktow and maintain the
    island. TRAVIS: There was a lot of assimilation here. TALIESIN: Like Orlando. MATT: (laughs) Sure! (laughter) TALIESIN: Not everyone’s a retired person or a
    college student. Somebody’s got to actually clean that place up. (laughter) SAM: We love you, Orlando. MATT: Yes. TALIESIN: I really do. I have plans. (laughter) MATT: Hear that? Taliesin has plans for you,
    Orlando. TALIESIN: Deep plans. SAM: If I may? MARISHA: Okay. SAM: Here’s our options. TRAVIS: Here it is. MARISHA: Do you have a powerpoint? SAM: I don’t, but I’ve been thinking about
    things. TRAVIS: How drunk are you? SAM: I’m lit. I’m tight, but feeling good. TALIESIN: Amigo. SAM: Our intent is to get off this island without
    Tiffany, correct? MARISHA: Mm-hmm. Well, I think it’s less about
    getting off this island without Tiffany and more about getting to that shipwreck first, before
    her. TRAVIS: I think that’s the highest priority. The
    only thing that we haven’t discerned from Tiffany is if she knows where the next– SAM: Apricot? TRAVIS: No, we know where the apricot might be,
    where the next apricot tree might be. SAM: Fruit stand? Apricot tree. TRAVIS: Or fruit stand. I like it. SAM: Here’s our options. I’m just putting them out
    there. I put no weight on any of them. We can follow Tiffany tomorrow as she goes about her day.
    We can get in touch with this Allison person, follow her– MARISHA: Bitch. SAM: I know, right? (laughter) TRAVIS: Well, if you used her right name. SAM: We could talk to some of Tiffany’s crew,
    right? Bouldergut seems dumb. LAURA: You shouldn’t use her real name. TRAVIS: Yeah, wow. SAM: Sorry. Franklin Delano Roosevelt seems dumb. (laughter) SAM: Also the former quartermaster, Theodore
    Roosevelt. (laughter) SAM: Then, there’s this Sorris fellow. I don’t
    know, he didn’t seem like he’s be a font of any knowledge. LAURA: I like him. SAM: We can sabotage Tiffany’s ship. I don’t know
    what that would do because we need it to get off the island. We could frame Tiffany for some crime
    against another pirate! We have a signature from Tiffany in a letter that she wrote. We have– that
    is all that we have. MARISHA: Well, she’s not currently at her ship.
    I’m assuming a lot of her valuable information is locked away in her captain’s quarters somewhere on
    Tiffany’s ship. If we can get the information to the next apricot tree, then do we need Tiffany
    anymore? LAURA: I just remembered. SAM: What? LAURA: Well, I have this new spell that the
    Traveler was telling me about. It lets you pop in somewhere. You can just pop in and then you can
    bring somebody with you. It’s like a doorway. SAM: You could pop in where? To her ship? To her
    captain’s quarters? LAURA: I would pop into her office. SAM: On the ship? On the Tiffany ship? MARISHA: How far? LIAM: How far away can you do a pop-in? LAURA: That’s a really good question! Let me think
    about it. Hey, Traveler, how far away can I use this spell? 500 whole feet, he says! SAM: That’s a lot. MARISHA: That’s a lot of feet. So many feet. Look,
    if I’ve learned anything about important people, it’s that they can’t resist putting shit down on
    paper. I guarantee you, there’s something in her office. LAURA: I don’t know how we would get out of it
    once I was in there though, because I can only use it once but I suppose– SAM: You can just leave. LAURA: Yeah, but wouldn’t somebody be keeping
    watch on the ship, though? SAM: But it’s our ship, we work on the ship. MARISHA: Do we have credentials? Do we have like,
    badges? Like beep-beep? MATT: No. TRAVIS: Well, I can tell you that her quarters
    have a balcony. MARISHA: Oh, can you? LIAM: We could also potentially send Frumpkin with
    a note or letter. LAURA: And do what? LIAM: Leave it. SAM: You mean like plant something? MARISHA: No, I want to get something. SAM: Rifle through her stuff. TRAVIS: Yeah, because if we are planning to leave
    without her, that means she’ll give chase– I mean, I hate to even suggest it, but I’d rather
    not have someone hot on our tail. LIAM: Also, this leads me to a question I have
    which is, instead of discussing the short term which we want to do, I want to ask you about the
    long term. If we ditch Tiffany, and we find the apricot tree, what happens then? Like, what is
    your plan with this apricot? I think we have ideas about what could come from it. She’s done what she
    did at the first tree and you got the next tree, and maybe she races to the– What happens next,
    Fjord? Like, I know you are curious, but what is the plan? LAURA: Should we be using your name or should we
    call you something else right now too? MARISHA: Tusktooth? LIAM: We’ll call him Honda. MARISHA: So many nicknames. TALIESIN: I’m lost. TRAVIS: Well, as Honda, I would race to the
    apricot and seize it so that she can’t pick that fruit. Keep it for ourselves in our fruit basket,
    and make off and decide if we’re going to make marmalade later or not. TALIESIN: I like marmalade. LIAM: Do you know how, at the first tree, an
    apricot was picked and things shook, something happened there. This place was all aboutdrei,
    the number three, so you want to go pluck another fruit and that’s two out of three and what happens
    once the third– TRAVIS: We actually don’t know where the other
    tree is yet, that’s the thing. We just know where the fruit is. MARISHA: Personally, I feel more comfortable with
    Honda controlling the supply of apricots than Tiffany. TRAVIS: They’re in season right now. LIAM: I am not telling any of you, especially you,
    what to do here, but an alternative plan is to get rid of anyone who knows about the location of the
    tree and bury the tree. MARISHA: The tree we just came from or the tree
    that we’re going to? TRAVIS: If we do that, we might need to ask
    Tiffany if she knows the location of the tree because it hasn’t been brought up as of yet. MARISHA: Fuck asking Tiffany any questions. We
    break into Breakfast at Tiffany’s and get the information that we need. TALIESIN: That was a long walk. TRAVIS: It was a long walk, but we’re all on the
    same page. Okay, are we up for a little B&E? MARISHA: Eyy, this is my specialty. TRAVIS: In real life or the game? MARISHA: No comment. I plead the fifth. LAURA: Will we be using the fancy doorway? MARISHA: I think to get in, yeah. TRAVIS: Yeah, absolutely. Don’t you have another
    way to make a door? TALIESIN: That’s in an emergency. LAURA: Well yes, but that is– SAM: That would be permanent. LAURA: That’s the thing, she would definitely see
    there was a new door. MARISHA: Also, you said there was a balcony
    right? TRAVIS: Yeah. MARISHA: Was there a door to the balcony? Do you
    think that would be locked? TRAVIS: I mean there was a door– was it solid
    wood or did it have glass? MATT: No, it had two glass doorways, like windows,
    but they open like doors and latch shut. SAM: Wait, if you could get in to her cabin, you
    can Disguise Self as well, right? You could change yourself to Vera or something? MARISHA: Or to Avantika. SAM: Or to Avantika or Vera? MARISHA: I mean Tiffany? SAM: Oh shit! Shit! MARISHA: Fuck! We were doing so well. MATT: Roll initiative! MARISHA: Who’s here?! SAM: You could turn yourself into Franklin Delano
    Roosevelt. You could walk off the ship and no one would think the wiser, or they might say,
    “Franklin Delano Roosevelt! Why are you on “Tiffany’s ship?” You’d be like, “Bitch, I work
    here.” TALIESIN: Why are there two of you here? SAM: I’m Franklin Delano Roosevelt! TALIESIN: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and then
    you’re two people on a ship and you’re involved in things and– I mean, it’s a good emergency plan,
    but can you only go once? You can’t go twice? LAURA: I can’t go twice. I can just do it once. LIAM: What if some of us kept Avantika busy? LAURA: Tiffany. LIAM: This is difficult. TALIESIN: A few of us were eating apricots at the
    time. LIAM: What if Fjord keeps Tiff busy- SAM: Honda. LIAM: Man, oh man– LAURA: Honda keeps Tiffany busy. LIAM: What if the green guy and the gal are busy,
    you follow? MARISHA: Do we need to have Honda distract
    Tiffany? Can we not do this right now while she’s theoretically sleeping? LIAM: Let me finish the thought. You do that
    thing, you take your little doorway over, you do what you want to do, then poof, you are Tiffany.
    You walk off the boat, because Tiffany is busy. MARISHA: That’s true, he could be accountable. LIAM: 100% busy, not maybe busy, maybe she’s
    sleeping, maybe she’s out for a walk. MARISHA: For sure busy. We could have this guy
    with Frumpkin making sure that they’re busy, if you’re comfortable with that. You don’t have a lot
    of a choice. SAM: Can you keep Tiffany busy for, you know, 15
    or 20 minutes? TRAVIS: Sure. SAM: 25 if you really had to? Take a break? TRAVIS: Maybe with a short rest. Maybe. LIAM: It’s real quiet at this table. (laughter) SAM: This is a good plan, and we’re going to go in
    there– oh, you’re going to go in there. Do you need some help? LAURA: I should bring somebody with me. MARISHA: This is my forte, man. LAURA: Okay, me and you, Beau. MARISHA: Okay. SAM: Except Beau can’t make herself look like
    anything else. MARISHA: But if I’m with the queen, then what does
    it matter? TRAVIS: Who’s the queen in this scenario? SAM and MARISHA: Tiffany. SAM: Fake Tiffany. LAURA: You don’t want yourself connected with this
    at all. MARISHA: I could take the– that’s a good point.
    Fuck. LAURA: Plus, here’s the thing. Caduceus is really
    perceptive. TRAVIS: The two clerics are not going on the
    mission together! SAM: I can break into things. LAURA: That’s true. TALIESIN: You’re very sneaky. LIAM: You’re small. SAM: I can also talk to Caleb. LIAM: That’s also true. MARISHA: How are you going to get off the boat? SAM: I can make myself look like something. LAURA: That’s true, you could be Sorris. TRAVIS: Doesn’t Ipsis– small like? MATT: Ipess? Ipess is a gnome, yeah. SAM: I could be Ipess. LAURA: Ipess! That’s right! TALIESIN: I can give you guys enhanced ability,
    too, for the remains of the evening. You can pick something and both of you, if you want to be
    better at something for a little while. LAURA: We never get into trouble together. I mean,
    this is foolproof. SAM: It cannot fail! LAURA: Any time we’ve tried to do anything
    together, it went off seamlessly. SAM: This is the best plan we’ve ever had. TRAVIS: That’s a natural one, this is going to
    fucking suck. (laughter) TRAVIS: All right. Okay. MARISHA: What are me and Cad doing? SAM: We need someone just off the boat in case
    things go awry. I’ll message you that we need some help on the inside, and there needs to be someone
    on the outside of Honda and Tiffany in case he needs some help in there, I don’t know. TRAVIS: No. MARISHA: Cad, can you go with Honda? TALIESIN: I wouldn’t know how to help with that. MARISHA: You have to be nearby. TALIESIN: It also seems like a lot of commitment,
    but okay. I can keep an eye on that. TRAVIS: Also where are we staying tonight? Are we
    staying at The Bloated Cup, or we finding– LAURA: We could stay on the boat. That would solve
    all of our problems. MARISHA: Can we? TRAVIS: On Tiffany’s ship? LAURA: I mean, we’ve been staying on it already,
    don’t we have quarters on there? MATT: I mean there are quarters on there you can
    stay in, yes. SAM: Where were we meant to stay? Where are the
    other crew staying? On the ship or on land? MATT: You’re not sure. Some of them you saw found
    rooms up top, above the tavern you were in. Others left for the night, you don’t know where they
    went. TRAVIS: It might not be a bad idea to find a room
    that’s not at the Bloated Cup and not on the ship. Just so we’re not suspicious. TALIESIN: Have we seen anything around like
    another tavern or something maybe a little, I hate to say, more upscale, but cleaner? MATT: Not really, not here. TALIESIN: Something with less piles of shit behind
    it? MATT: No, you get the sense that Darktow doesn’t
    have a lot of offerings for travelers, since most of the travelers that come through here are part
    of the Revelry. Only a few of them stay offshore. You passed a number of homes of people that live
    here or spend a lot of time here and have in a boat. TRAVIS: How do you feel about rooms at the
    Bloated, Cad? TALIESIN: Yes. TRAVIS: Three rooms? TALIESIN: Three rooms. TRAVIS: Hopefully some with windows? SAM: Sure. TRAVIS: Smells like shit in there. LAURA: We all wait until Fjord starts boning, and
    then we start our action. MARISHA: How about this: Caleb and Caduceus and
    Fjord, you’re one team. You have Frumpkin watch Fjord, you give me the word when it’s good to go,
    I’ll deliver that to Nott and Jessie, they go– LAURA: This is way more complicated than I thought
    it was going to be. TALIESIN: I don’t know, actually I’m following it
    actually for the first time this entire– MARISHA: I’ll give you the signal, you guys go,
    I’ll be nearby, I’ll distract any guards if need be with my feminine wiles, and then you let me
    know if there’s any emergency– SAM: You’re the runner. MARISHA: Then I will have no means to communicate
    with anybody else, but you will. SAM: Sure. TALIESIN: You’ll be a good go between. If we hear
    something bad, we can get an owl to ship, if you hear something, then– MARISHA: Actually, that’s a good point. How far
    away is the Bloated Cup from the boat? MATT: From the boat? The Bloated Cup is right off
    from where all the docks join and from the shipyard, so it’s maybe about 300 feet away. MARISHA: Oh, that’s amazing. Cool. Perfect. TRAVIS: Famous last words. MARISHA: Good. It might be our downfall, but it’s
    great. MATT: All right. MARISHA: Okay, so I’ll try and be within eyeshot
    of the Bloated Cup, within eyeshot of you. SAM: Honda, are you going to be able to– TRAVIS: Look, I’ll be fine. I’ll make sure she’s
    occupied. SAM: I’m just saying, there’s gonna be a peeping
    tom in the room with you. TRAVIS: Now, what do you mean “in the room”? SAM: I think we need Frumpkin in there. TALIESIN: No. TRAVIS: What form is Frumpkin, an octopus? SAM: A peeping tomcat. TRAVIS: Is he there? LIAM: He’s right here. MARISHA: Oh, he’s been in my— MATT: You see this really uncomfortably frazzled
    owl that’s been jammed in a pocket. MARISHA: Sorry I don’t– TRAVIS: Am I carrying him in, like it’s no big? TALIESIN: No, I don’t think we– SAM: No, he can fly outside the window and peek
    in, just to see if you’re– LAURA: Avantika knows, I mean Tiffany knows that
    that owl is yours, Caleb, it’s not like it’s a secret, if she’s seen the owl before she’s going
    to know you’re spying on her. TALIESIN: We don’t need to actually know what’s
    going on in there. Why does anybody need to know that? TRAVIS: Yeah, I don’t think so. Listen, let’s just
    kick this thing off. I’ll toss Frumpkin back to Caleb. Look, I leave this in your capable hands. LIAM: Well, Frumpkin has had a peek inside of her
    quarters after she has seen him. She did not see him the first time. Although, to be doubly sure I
    could change his shape again. TALIESIN: Well, I think the thing to do here, I
    mean, it just makes sense, is that if you leave the room for any reason, we send Frumpkin to the
    ship. They see Frumpkin, they know it’s time to– MARISHA: To get out. TALIESIN: That’s the signal. TRAVIS: If for some reason Tiffany’s on the move,
    or if something seems up, listen for thunder. How about that? MARISHA: Here, I slip Caduceus a few of those
    firecrackers that I have. LAURA: His boning makes thunder. SAM: What’s the source of the thunder? Is that
    like– LAURA: His weenie. TRAVIS: Nothing I could say would beat that. So. LIAM: But, you know, if we’re not comfortable, I
    could change Frumpkin to be, say, a raven or something. TRAVIS: Sure, whatever you feel is best. MARISHA: How long will that take? TRAVIS: All right, here we go. I head off towards
    The Bloated Cup. LAURA: We head towards the ship. MARISHA: Break! LAURA: We walk towards the ship. MATT: As you begin to settle towards your
    directions for the evening here, under the shadow of moonlit mist, within the pirate city of
    Darktow, we’re going to go ahead and take a break. We’ll be back here in a little bit to see how
    this– MARISHA: This is either the best plan or the worst
    plan. MATT: I’m excited to see what the fuck is going to
    happen next. Before we leave, we do have our Wyrmwood giveaway. Our fantastic friends at
    Wyrmwood have brought this fantastic– Oh, this is pretty wood! This is a lacewood tabletop dice
    tray. It looks like bronze dragonhide the way it looks against the– it’s so pretty! Leather inside
    there, it’s awesome. One lucky winner will have this at the end of the break. Jump over into the
    Critical Role Twitch chat, that’s To enter, the codeword
    tonight is “pirates.” Plural, pirates. Enter the word once to enter. Any more than that and
    unfortunately you’ll be disqualified. Only people in the US and Canada, excluding Quebec, can enter,
    because of stupid international gifting contest rules. Anyway, we’ll be back here in a moment with
    the winner. See you then. [break] MATT: And welcome back, everyone. Before we get to
    it, we do have our winner of the fantastic lacewood tabletop dice tray from our friends at
    Wyrmwood. It is EmperorGeiserick. EmperorGeiserick, congratulations. We’ll get your
    info and get this sent out to you ASAP. Well done, hope you enjoy. Bringing us into the moment as you
    guys scatter to your various plans. MARISHA: It’s a great plan. MATT: We have Fjord going to the upper floor of
    the Bloated Cup. What are the rest of you doing at this moment? TRAVIS: Real confident, real strong. TALIESIN: I’m staying downstairs to wait for you
    to either come down or for her to leave. I’m going to sit and probably try and find something
    non-alcoholic to drink so I don’t have to be an idiot. LIAM: That’s where it’s going to go down is in the
    Bloated Cup. TALIESIN: Upstairs. LIAM: I thought maybe it would say like maybe you
    know, romantic on the boat. But great. Good. So, if that’s the case, then I’m not getting into that
    room. I think that I should tail this team instead, if you’ve got an eye on the exit to that
    building. TALIESIN: Let me see, yeah. LAURA: Shouldn’t you be able to Message Nott and
    say she’s on the move if– LIAM: Yeah. LAURA: So maybe stay close where you can see it if
    she leaves? LIAM: Yeah. MATT: Okay. Yasha is doing what as part of this? TALIESIN: I think Yasha is probably either with
    you– She’s either with you or with us, I imagine. MATT: Probably with you. She’s a bit conspicuous.
    If things go really bad, she’ll be ready to help out on that side of things. TRAVIS: If Bouldergut is in the Bloated Cup,
    that’s where Yasha is. MATT: There you go. MARISHA: I turn my cloak inside-out to the
    inconspicuous side, and case towards the docks, and start casing the area for Revelry that are
    guarding the area, or potentially, a good place for them to do the thing. MATT: Make a perception check. TRAVIS: Is somebody aiding you in that? No. MARISHA: 13. MATT: 13. Okay. Looking out along the docks, there
    are two particular watch-outs that are assigned to that particular part of the docks, where the
    Squalleater is currently wet anchored. You also see two individuals on the deck of the ship, not
    holding torches, but you can see them through the fog. One of them walks and moves. That’s what you
    see. MARISHA: Do I see anything that looks like it
    could be a potentially good area for them to cast a spell without being noticed? MATT: The docks are pretty open here. There isn’t
    much of a place to hide. This isn’t a major shipping region. Most everything is taken off the
    docks and off the ships and then brought into shore, so there isn’t a bunch of errant piles of
    boxes and barrels, per se. The docks are pretty open. Best bet would be somehow under the docks,
    but most of that is in the ocean, or trying your best to wait for a moment when people aren’t
    paying attention. MARISHA: Okay. I block around as to not look like
    it’s going the same way that I just came from and catch back up with these two. With the
    detectives. MATT: All right. As you guys are having this
    conversation, Beauregard manages to circle back and come back to you. MARISHA: All right, there’s two guards casing the
    dock and two of Avantika’s– Tiffany’s people on the ship. It looks pretty open, we might want to
    find an alternative for you guys to not be noticed as you do the crazy magic thing. SAM: It looks open? MARISHA: It’s super open, two guards guarding the
    dock and two people on the deck of Tiffany’s ship. SAM: Getting on is not a problem. LAURA: Yeah, we can just go to our quarters or
    something. MARISHA: To then bamf over? Our quarters in the– SAM: Inside the ship. LAURA: Yeah. What do you think? MARISHA: Okay. SAM: We can just be there. MARISHA: You guys are going to have to talk to
    guards and convince yourself on the way in and you will be noticed. SAM: No. We just arein. LAURA: Because it’s our ship. SAM: What do you mean? MARISHA: We’re talking about two different things
    here. SAM: Please, start over again. MARISHA: There are two guards guarding the docks,
    there are two people on the ship of Avantika’s bo– of Tiffany’s boat. On the de– You get what
    I’m saying? The deck of the ship. Of the boat. SAM: Uh-huh. TRAVIS: It’s real sotto, so we don’t have to use
    code words anymore. MARISHA: If you all want to just walk on to your
    quarters, you will have two guards and two of our crew members who will see you walk on. LIAM: I think what Beau’s implying is perhaps it’s
    better that we’re never seen there at all. MARISHA: We hide somewhere and we’re never seen at
    all and you’ll bamf in. Unless you disguise yourself as Tiffany now. Then I would say we find
    a hidden place, potentially in our private quarters in the Bloated Cup, that you bamf into. LAURA: Is it within 500 feet of– MARISHA: He said it was within 300. LAURA: Fuck yeah. Yeah, let’s go to our quarters
    in the Bloated Cup. SAM: We’re going to start the bamf there. LAURA: Start it in the tavern! MARISHA: I will be nearby, near the docks. Signal
    if you need me. SAM: You won’t see us ever. MARISHA: Good. LIAM: Here is how I would like to contribute.
    First, I’m going to disguise myself when it is time. Not yet, but I will make myself look like
    voice actor Charlie Adler. I will be salt-and-pepper– I’ll fit right in on the docks. MATT: Oh, you’ll fit right in in Darktow. LIAM: I won’t be in a denim tuxedo, but I will
    wear traditional pirate garb. TRAVIS: He’s our type, man, he thinks sleeves are
    bullshit too. LIAM: They are bullshit. There will be no sleeves
    on this disguise. I’m going to hang out between the Bloated Cup and the ship, looking like
    Charlie. Frumpkin I will just have circle a continuous circle above the whole area so I can
    see the guards on the boat, and we can message each other,ja? I’ll just be eyes in the sky,
    Charlie on the ground. MATT: You got it. All right. TALIESIN: How’s a dex bonus go for you? How’s an
    advantage on dex, or do you already have– SAM: I mean, I have very high dexterity. LAURA: Could always use advantage. SAM: Okay. TALIESIN: Less that could possibly go wrong, so
    before they go in, I’m going to cast Enhance Ability on these two. At a level three, so I get
    two people. SAM: Maybe charisma? MARISHA: Yeah, for the deception. SAM: Leaving. TALIESIN: That’s fair. All right. SAM: I can already dex my way around. LAURA: We could potentially jump out the window
    too. SAM: But you can’t. LAURA: What are you talking about? SAM: Are you dextrous? LAURA: I’m so dextrous. TALIESIN: It also will give you zero damage for a
    20-foot fall, if I give you a dex bonus. But– SAM: I have Feather Fall. TALIESIN: You have Feather Fall. So you want
    charisma. SAM: Maybe? TALIESIN: That’s not helpful. Charisma. Unless you
    make a decision in the next 30 seconds. SAM: Yes, I want it! Give it to me now! TALIESIN: Cool. And you’re getting wisdom. You
    have advantage on wisdom, you have advantage on charisma. Then right before you go in, I’m going
    to give you guys both a resistance bump before we push them through the door. Just in case you need
    it. LAURA: We’re up in our rooms. TALIESIN: For one minute, they can add a d4 to a
    saving throw. SAM: Ooh, did anyone touch the dodecahedron yet? MARISHA: Someone do that. SAM: Fjord, do you want to do it? I guess you’re
    already fucking. TRAVIS: No, I’m not. SAM: Do you want the dodeca? TALIESIN: Is it just a general d4 bonus? MATT: What are you using? TALIESIN: A cantrip. You touch one willing
    creature once before the spell ends. The target can roll a d4 and add the number to its roll. MATT: It’s Resistance. It is a concentration, so
    that would override your Enhance Ability. TALIESIN: Oh, you’re right, absolutely, never mind
    then. Not a big deal. Thank you. I’m getting used to this concentration. MATT: That’s all good, no worries. It’s a little
    bit of a juggle. All right, while this is all being set up– LAURA: Nott, just look at the dodecahedron. SAM: (screaming) MATT: You have your– SAM: Fate point. MARISHA: Before they leave and we all go our
    respective ways, I go: All right, listen. Rich people love to have safes, but they love to hide
    stuff in the walls of safes, like false bottoms in drawers. Stuff like that. TRAVIS: False backs to safes. MARISHA: False backs to safes. So even if you get
    in, and you think you find everything, double- and triple-check, all right? They love to write shit
    down, I’m telling you it’s there. LAURA: Okay. SAM: You’ve stolen from a lot of rich people. LAURA: Yeah. She stole mail one time. SAM: I know, it’s sort of her defining trait. LAURA: That and her beautiful hair. (laughs) MARISHA: Thanks. SAM: When you laugh right after you said that, I
    think that was very insulting. (laughter) MARISHA: Was she not complimenting me? SAM: No, she was laughing. LAURA: I wasn’t, Beau, I love your hair. I wasn’t
    laughing at you! MARISHA: Just go steal from rich people. LAURA: I wasn’t laughing at you, I love your hair,
    okay. SAM: We’re ready. Let’s do this. MATT: While you guys begin to set your ways,
    Fjord. You make your way to the Bloated Cup. Where do you head? LIAM: (singing) Thunderstruck! TRAVIS: I’ll head up the stairs to the second room
    on the right, was it? LAURA: (whispering) Left. Second room on the
    left. MATT: Do you want to knock? TRAVIS: Anyone in the hallways? MATT: At the moment, no. TRAVIS: No sign of Bouldergut? MATT: Make a perception check. TRAVIS: 11. MATT: No, no sign of Bouldergut. TRAVIS: She’s an ogre. MATT: I know. TRAVIS: Okay. Yeah, second door on the right, and
    I’ll put my ear against the door. MATT: Make another perception check. TRAVIS: Shit, balls, ass. Oh, three. MATT: You don’t hear anything through the door. TRAVIS: (sighs) MARISHA: Can’t hear from the blood pumping in his
    ears? TRAVIS: (heartbeat) (knocking) MATT: There’s a slight pause and you hear some
    rustling and some shuffling. A voice goes, “Who is it?” TRAVIS: Oh, sorry. Is– (clears throat) is the
    captain in? MATT: “Who the fuck is this?” TRAVIS: Fjord. Who’s this? MATT: “Piss off, I’m sleeping.” TRAVIS: Second door on the– Is there a door
    across the hall? MATT: There is. TRAVIS: I’ll put my ear on that one. MATT: Make a perception check. TRAVIS: Three. MATT: Don’t hear anything. (faster heartbeat) TRAVIS: Does it look like there’s any light on
    under the door? MATT: Maybe a faint bit. (knocking) MATT: You hear some heavy shifting. “Hi?” TRAVIS: Bouldergut? MATT: “Just open the fucking door.” “Okay.” The
    door comes open. You see there, crunched down in the room, head hunched forward, is Bouldergut,
    who’s been holding vigil at the doorway. (grunts) Pats you into the chamber. You get pushed in.
    Avantika’s sitting on the edge of the bed, currently reading through a book with the window
    open outside, and goes, “Quartermaster.” TRAVIS: Captain. MATT: “Bouldergut, if you would be so kind as to
    keep watch on the hallway for a bit.” Bouldergut goes, “Okay. If I hear any–” “If you hear
    anything, don’t bother.” “Okay.” She leaves the chamber, closes the door behind her. Closes the
    book, sets it on a small table. TRAVIS: She’s very loyal. MATT: “That is my favorite kind of person.” TRAVIS: How long has Bouldergut been with you in
    your service? MATT: “Going on the better part of a decade. We
    actually both met when I was first beginning my career.” TRAVIS: Quite some time. How have your evenings
    been? MATT: “Well, very busy with our attempt to make it
    to Darktow and keep things organized in “preparation. So. Lonely.” TRAVIS: Any more dreams? MATT: “A few.” TRAVIS: Tell me. MATT: “How about I show you instead?” TRAVIS: Yes. I’d like that. MATT: So you begin keeping her busy. LAURA: Oh. I see. MATT: Or she keeps you busy, actually, would be
    more the– TRAVIS: Yes, that’s more correct, yeah. MATT: While that’s happening, you guys made your
    way back to the inn. It’s a very muddied view of the ship because of the mist, but you can still
    make out the major details of the outskirts of it from this far away. LAURA: Okay. I don’t need to be able to see it. I
    know exactly the spot I desire. I can visualize it because we’ve been in her office before. MATT: Correct. You have. So yeah, you can. SAM: How does this work? LAURA: I don’t know. I’ve never done it before. SAM: Well, is there a chance it could fail? Might
    we die? LAURA: Never. LIAM: Do me a favor. I’m going to go outside now,
    okay, and keep watch. Let me know when you’re on and give me updates. Good luck. Charlie Adler. MATT: All right. The best new abracadabra. LIAM: Charlie! For every spell. MARISHA: I’m on my way towards the docks. SAM: Are we synchronizing watches? What is this? LAURA: Doorways are the tits! SAM: What? Ah! MATT: There’s a brief moment where you feel like
    the air’s been drawn out of your lungs, and you feel as if you’re being suddenly thrust forward
    from behind, somebody pushing the small of your back with such intense speed that you feel like
    your neck is about to just whiplash terribly backward. Then suddenly you come to a stop, and
    you’re both standing in the middle of Avantika’s quarters on the ship. It’s dark. LAURA: I cast Pass Without a Trace on both of us. MATT: All right. MARISHA: Yas, queen, yas. SAM: That was amazing! We are secret agents! We’re
    secret detectives! LAURA: We are amazing! We need to start looking
    because we only have a few minutes. SAM: Yes. Oh, wait, I’ve already forgotten! Take
    out the wire, fold it just so. Okay. We’re in the ship, Caleb. MATT: What’s the range on that? SAM: 120 feet. Can you hear me? Reply to this
    message. MATT: The range on Message? SAM: 120 feet. MATT: 120 feet? He’s out of range. LIAM: I’m out in the docks. You said the boat– MATT: Correct. You haven’t made it there yet. LIAM: Oh, okay. MARISHA: You’re staying in between. I’m heading a
    little bit further. The daisy chain. MATT: Yeah, because you guys instantaneously
    traveled. He has a few more minutes before he’ll reach range. MARISHA: So you guys, to Beau, to Caleb, to Cad,
    to Fjord. SAM: Beauregard, can you hear me? If you can,
    respond to this message. MARISHA: I can hear you. I have responded to this
    message. SAM: We are inside the boat. Relay that message
    when you can. Bye. LAURA: Okay, start looking. Can we both see,
    because we both have darkvision? MATT: You can, but there’s a lack of color. It’s
    mostly some shades of black and white and gray. LAURA: We should probably figure out a way to
    light up the room. Are there curtains? MATT: There are two sets of small curtains that
    are currently tied off on the sides of the windows that can open onto the balcony. SAM: Do you want to burn them for light? LAURA: No, we should close them. SAM: Oh, okay. That’s better. LAURA: I sneak over and close the windows
    quietly. SAM: Just close the windows. MATT: As a general note, I would like you both to
    make a stealth check as you go about your activities. SAM: Hood up. LIAM: Also, while they do that– I’m sorry. MATT: Just a moment. LAURA: Oh, you already have advantage? Blessing of
    the Trickster! There you go, I gave you blessing, so you get advantage. TRAVIS: Can you give yourself advantage? LAURA: (gasps) Natural 20! SAM: 18. LAURA: Plus ten, because Pass Without a Trace. MATT: 28, and what’s your total? LAURA: 24? No, wait. 34. MATT: Okay. MARISHA: Fuck. Yes. MATT: You both are (whooshing). For every piece of
    wood that begins to creak as you step, because it is a lot of aged wood that makes up this ship,
    begins to (creak), you stop yourself, and then shift the foot and you manage to make your way
    across here without any of the wood creaking. LAURA: Does she have a candle in the room that we
    could light? MATT: There are a number of candles, you could see
    that there’s– SAM: There’s probably gap under the doorway, a gap
    under there. They’ll see a glowing light. LAURA: Take your cloak off and shove it under the
    door to block the light. SAM: I would reveal my unmentionables! LAURA: I take my cloak off and I put it next to
    the doorway to block the light. SAM: I’ll take my cloak and hang it over the
    curtains so it’s double-blocked. MATT: Okay, like duvet over the window. LAURA: I light the candle. MARISHA: I signal to Caleb that they’ve made it on
    the ship. LIAM: I was going to say, once I’m out and about,
    about once every 30 seconds I will lean on something, pretending like I’m slightly drunk, and
    I will go into Frumpkin’s vision from above, just for five seconds, to look at the activity on the
    boat and where those guards are, and then go out of it. MATT: Perception check for Frumpkin. I’ll say at
    disadvantage because of the mist, unfortunately. LIAM: Okay. Ooh, terrible. So terrible. That’s six
    or seven. MATT: Okay. You can see the torchlight from the
    two guards that are on the actual docks, and one of them’s keeping an eye out on the water, and one
    of them’s keeping an eye on the docks. They’re stationed to keep an eye out not just to what’s
    happening within the actual shipyard, but also beyond, as far as they can into the mist, for any
    ships that are arriving in the middle of the night. But Frumpkin cannot see the people on the
    actual deck of the ship. LIAM: It’s all that fog. MATT: Yeah. All right. TALIESIN: Does Nott’s cloak unattune if they take
    it off? MATT: Technically, yes. Now that you have the
    candlelight there, gently there, quietly. LAURA: We start searching through her office. MATT: What are you looking for? LAURA: We’re looking for anything she’s written
    about where the last fruit tree is, the last temple. SAM: You’re going through papers, yeah? LAURA: I’m going through papers. SAM: I’m going to go around the walls and look for
    hidden safes. LAURA: I’m looking through her desk, seeing if I
    can find any false bottoms or anything like that to try to find secret information. MATT: Okay. Do you want to each make an
    investigation check, or do you want to help one or the other make it? LAURA: Each make an investigation. MATT: Then both of you make an investigation
    check, please. LAURA: Oh, we get advantage? No. MATT: No, you do not. SAM: We get advantage oneverything. MATT: You took charisma and wisdom, so you do
    not. LAURA: Shit. SAM: 19. LAURA: Nine. Which is like a natural 20 in this
    campaign. MATT: Going through the desk, the first thing that
    happens is one of the drawers gives you resistance. It’s locked. The other drawers you
    pull open, there is blank paper, a quill, a couple of small little ink pots. The next one beneath has
    a folded piece of cloth that you pull out and inspect. It looks like it’s a cover either for the
    desk or something else. You’re not quite sure what the purpose is. Checking under the desk, you don’t
    find any other hidden chambers or anything that marks what you were searching for. LAURA: Okay. MATT: Nott, you were looking for–? SAM: Hidden safes in the wall, trap-opening
    thingies. MATT: Glancing around, there is a shelf unit with
    a number of books on it. You pull back some of the books and look behind it, along the back of the
    actual bookshelf itself. You don’t find any hidden pockets in there. There’s a small cabinet
    underneath, and you open it up and there’s a series of wooden and metal cups, wine goblets and
    various types of imbibement containers. Pushing through there, you do find one panel on the back
    that’s a bit loose, and you slide it off and behind there you see a small leather book. SAM: I’ll check it for traps. MATT: Make a– SAM: Investigation? MATT: The weird perception/investigation thing for
    traps, this is the eternal debate back and forth. Go ahead and consider this a perception check. SAM: Three. MARISHA: What? What would investigation have
    been? SAM: 12. MARISHA: But you’re a badass rogue! MATT: It depends. There’s a difference between
    noticing something’s off, and then ascertaining the nature of whatever’s off that would be an
    actual trap. Since you’re looking for traps, specifically for this one, and not noticing
    something different, I would say allowing this to be an investigation. SAM: Well, it’s still pretty low. 12. MATT: I know, yeah. LAURA: This is better than three. MATT: I know. It does not appear to be trapped. SAM: Okay. I will pick up the book. MATT: Okay. You pull the book back, and as soon as
    you pull back there’s a slight tug on it, like something that gives resistance, and then comes
    free. A little piece of cable or twine falls to dangle from behind one side. SAM: We’ve been made! Turn over the place. MATT: (hissing) LAURA: Oh no. Hit the deck! MATT: This room begins to fill with a very faint
    fume. SAM: Hold your breath. LAURA: We hold our breath! I take out the paint
    and I paint a hole in the bottom of the floor. In! SAM: Not yet, no! Hold your breath, we’ve got to
    look around! I’m still looking, I’m holding my breath and I’m looking. You paint, I’m looking. I
    look at the book, is there anything there? MATT: Looking inside the book, there’s a bunch of
    scrawlings. What languages do you know? SAM: Common, Goblin, Halfling. MATT: You do not recognize any of the languages in
    the book. SAM: Taking the book. MATT: You put the book inside your pocket. SAM: I’m going to go over to the desk where Jester
    had pointed and start jimmying the lock on the locked thing. MATT: Okay. Make a lockpicking check. SAM: 15. MATT: 15? It’s not opening. SAM: Pull it open. (grunt) And just: smoke! LAURA: I try to pull it open. MATT: Okay. Make a strength check. MARISHA: Come on! LAURA: 18. MATT: Okay. You pull the drawer: it breaks open.
    Loudly. SAM: Sure. MATT: You pull the drawer open, look inside. It
    looks like there are a few small jewelry boxes that are resting inside. SAM: Taking them all. MATT: You take them all. LAURA: I was just looking, but you can take,
    okay. MATT: Okay. The drawer, do you put it back? LAURA: Sure. MATT: Okay, you shove it back in. The edges are
    splintered. It is very apparently physically damaged. You also hear footsteps descending from
    the outside of the door. SAM: We’ve got to look more! LAURA: (negative noises) SAM: Okay, get in the– LAURA: Is there a rug in the room? MATT: There is a rug, yes. LAURA: Then I pull the rug over the hole that I
    just made after we go under. SAM: I’m going to grab a cloak off the thing. LAURA: Oh shit, I do the same thing, I see her do
    it and I grab my thing and blow out the candle, and go. MATT: Okay. First off– TRAVIS: I don’t need this in my life. SAM: Now there’s a permanent hole there. MATT: What’s your constitution modifiers? SAM: Modifiers? Two. LAURA: Two. MATT: Okay. With the little bit of conversation
    that’s there, that’s reduced the time, you’re just now hitting the time where your breath is starting
    to hurt, so you both, holding it, dive down and then, what, you–? LAURA: As I go down the hole, I pull the rug over
    the hole. MATT: Okay. LAURA: I have no idea where this takes us. MATT: As you’re doing this, you hear a voice
    going, “Hello?” and you hear the rattling of keys. You guys, by the way, you’re down now on the lower
    deck, this is the deck where most of the crewmen quarters are, and you’re down in one of the
    bedrooms. You glance over to the side and there’s a person sleeping in the bed right there, the
    blanket coiled over. They’re like, (snoring). SAM: I’m going to very quietly say: Wait until you
    hear a body fall above us. LAURA: (whispering) Take one of the things you
    stole and put it next to them. SAM: (whispering) Okay. (normal volume) What did I
    steal? TRAVIS: Jewelry boxes. MATT: A bunch of jewelry boxes. SAM: Can I open one up and see what’s in it? MATT: Yeah. You look inside and there’s a bunch of
    jewelry, jewels; it’s an actual small jewel collection. SAM: Put the jewel right on his shoulder. MATT: On the person who’s sleeping? SAM: Yeah, I tuck it under the blanket, like it
    was with him. LIAM: Just like Macbeth. MATT: Just the one jewel? SAM: Yeah, I’m going to keep the rest for myself. MATT: Okay, all right. You hear the door above
    open. (creak, footsteps). “Hey. Anyone?” The person who’s sleeping is like (snorts, grunts). SAM: We’re going to crawl under his bed. MATT: Okay, both of you guys make a stealth
    check. TALIESIN: You still have– LAURA: Oh no! That’s okay. SAM: 23 plus ten, still? LAURA: 18. Shit. SAM: 33, I guess. Right? MATT: Okay. You both quietly duck down.
    (footsteps, crash). Your carpet falls down, the guy comes plummeting through, hits the floor,
    (grunts). The other guy suddenly goes, “What?!”, pulls out a dagger towards the other guy, who
    immediately is like (yells), goes and starts stabbing into the carpet. (yelling) MATT: Going, “What?!” Other one’s like “Oh god!”
    Pushes him off, and stands up, and is like, “Jesus!” You see there’s a couple of stab wounds
    in his chest. “Zoen, what the hell, man?” Waldok, who you saw getting the tattoo earlier from your
    turtle friend. He’s like, “Oh! Shit, Waldok, I “didn’t know! What the fuck, don’t sneak up on me!”
    He wipes the blood off on the blanket. He’s like, “Oh, jeez. What the fuck happened there?” He looks
    up at this perfectly-carved hole in the floor. Doesn’t notice the gem. He’s like, “Fuck.” ” I’m
    so sorry, mate! I didn’t mean–” “Shit, what the “fuck happened?” “I don’t know. It’s a fucking
    faulty floor or something!” “Fuck.” “Well, let’s “get you to a surgeon or something.” He stands up
    and rolls off and the blanket falls over next to you guys. (clanking) The gem does fall. Neither of
    them notice it. You watch as they shuffle out of the room, and the door closes behind them, and you
    guys are now in the chamber with the open hole of Avantika’s– SAM: We can go back up, we can keep looking! Lift
    me up! LAURA: What if the poison is still up there? SAM: I think it’s probably wafted out by now. MATT: You do also hear the coughing of the man who
    was stabbed. SAM: Down the hall? MATT: Yeah. SAM: Peek my head up. MATT: As he’s inhaled whatever had been released
    in the room. LAURA: I will lift Nott up, to peek her head
    through. MATT: Okay, you peek up and look. The door that
    looks inside of the chamber– Okay, first off make a constitution saving throw. SAM: That’s a natural one. Maybe I should reroll
    that one, I’ll do my fate die. Okay, that’s slightly better: nine. (laughter) TALIESIN: We’re bad at everything. LAURA: No! MATT: All right, so you are considered confused. TRAVIS: Confused is complicated. MATT: Yep. TRAVIS: He’s going to tell you; you’ve got to roll
    to see what happens. MATT: I’ll tell you here in a second what’s going
    on now. You get the sense at this moment that the other gentleman, while coughing, managed to resist
    the effect of the fume in the chamber. You did not. You do notice the doorway is still open,
    because he just came inside to look, and across the way you see them both coming up the stairs,
    because they’re making their way up from the crew quarters, to the area near Avantika’s chamber,
    which is right by the deck. SAM: Tap her head: Down! LAURA: What? Okay, I bring– MATT: First, while that’s happening, I’m going to
    go ahead and roll a d10. TALIESIN: Oh no. MATT: You can act normally. So you can do that. MARISHA: Oh my god, you’re lucky! SAM: Wow! MATT: So you do. SAM: I’m going to say: Down! LAURA: I crouch down so Nott can– MATT: Okay. You both head down in the chamber.
    They walk up past. Make a saving throw again. A wisdom saving throw. SAM: Wisdom now. MATT: Yes. Constitution to see that the toxin took
    hold, and now it’s wisdom to resist the effect. SAM: 11. MATT: That’s another failure. You’re both sitting
    there quietly as they are walking across in front. TALIESIN: Oh no. MATT: You watch as Nott– suddenly her eyes go
    wide and she begins to drool a bit, and the body locks up. You’re unable to speak, unable to move. LAURA: (whispering) What? What’s going on? Nott!
    Shit! MATT: You hear now a little bit of raised voices
    and you can now hear this on the dock. One of them’s going, “What’s going on?” The other one’s
    like, “I have to get this guy to a doctor, he got “stabbed.” The other voice goes, “By fucking you,
    you twat!” He’s like, “I’m sorry!” “Oh, fine.” They start leading him off the ship. One of the
    guards begins to lead them off the docks. LAURA: Can I cast Lesser Restoration on Nott?
    Nott. Snap out of it. Nott! MATT: Does Lesser Restoration– LAURA: I don’t know. I didn’t even look. MATT: I don’t know if it does anything for this
    spell. LAURA: Condition– no. SAM: It’s a condition. LAURA: One condition affecting and the condition
    can be blinded, deafened, paralyzed, or poisoned. MATT: No. That does not affect it, so I need you
    to make another wisdom saving throw, Nott. LIAM: Caleb probably has wandered close enough to
    the boat now, and hearing– MARISHA: No, I’m daisy chaining to it, I give you
    a signal. LAURA: Okay, that’s good. SAM: 19. MATT: You do manage to resist the confusion
    effect. Aw, I was so hoping you were going to attack her. TRAVIS: Yeah, she could be straight up like,
    “Nope!” LAURA: Oh my god! MATT: Would’ve been fun. LAURA: What do we do? SAM: I don’t know. I don’t know what just
    happened. This is a crazy ship. LAURA: I heard them yelling. How do we get off of
    here? SAM: I don’t know. LAURA: What should we do? We left a hole in the
    floor. SAM: Let’s call for help. Caleb, can you hear me?
    We’re in big trouble. MARISHA: No, me! We already went through this. SAM: We need help! We need a distraction. Is Caleb
    there yet? LIAM: We’ve established the– MARISHA: The daisy chain. MATT: Caleb does not answer. SAM: Great. Going to try it again. Beauregard,
    we’re going to need a distraction to get out of here! LAURA: Nott, tell her nothing crazy, you know. You
    don’t want it to connect to us or anything. SAM: Mild confusion and panic, but don’t– what? LAURA: I don’t know. Maybe we can just get out. SAM: We’re going to disguise ourselves? LAURA: Oh, right. Okay. SAM: Hold on, I’ll call you back. LAURA: What are we going to disguise ourselves
    as? SAM: You were going to be Avantika and I was going
    to be Ipess. LAURA: Are we still going to do that? SAM: It doesn’t make any sense right now, does
    it? LAURA: No, it doesn’t make any more sense, though. MARISHA: I wander like a drunkard past Caleb and I
    go: Oh, so distracting. Like I need distractions. LAURA: What if I make another hole in the floor
    and we keep going down until we can get out. SAM: I guess she will have seen one hole by now. LIAM: Apologies to my German teacher from high
    school. I start pissing on the docks and singing:Laurentia, liebe Laurentia mein.SAM: Are there any portal windows? MATT: In the room you’re in right now? No. LAURA: Can I– LIAM: (singing)Am Sonntag.(speaking)
    Urination. (singing)Ach wenn es doch endlich schon–SAM: I’m going to grab that jewel that was on the
    floor. MATT: Okay. Go ahead and make a performance
    check. LIAM: Okay. Well, I’m definitely pissing and
    singing. MATT: Yes, you are. LIAM: Yep. I have rolled such shit tonight. MATT: So sorry buddy. LIAM: That’s a five. (singing)Von Dienstag.MATT: For all that you’ve been drinking over the
    past 24 hours, the tension has caused your bladder to retain everything and you’re barely eking out a
    sputtering stream. LIAM: Oh, okay. Well, I’ll do my best to knock
    things over as I go. MATT: There isn’t anything to knock over, these
    are open docks. LIAM: (shouting) Hey, Macarena! MATT: All right, you guys. LAURA: Can I stand up on the bed and try to make
    the hole look like it wasn’t perfectly painted, like it was like broken wood? SAM: Wait, wait! Just paint wood there! LAURA: Can I do that, though? MATT: Can’t paint on nothing. SAM: Fuck. LAURA: I wonder if I can use one of my pieces of
    paper to like put on there and then make it wood, like, fix it. MATT: Okay, you do that and as soon as you do that
    the paper falls as a plank of wood. LAURA: That’s what I thought was going to happen,
    but I wanted to see. SAM: No, no, no. MATT: It takes you awhile to do that. It’s a few
    minutes to paint the wood properly to have the effect kick in. SAM: Sure. MATT: You can mark off another two square feet. In
    the time they’re doing that, what are you guys doing? MARISHA: While he is being a creepo, I go over to
    the two guards on the dock. This drunk piece of shit over here, he tried to attack me. MATT: One of them has already pushed past you with
    a wounded man. The three of them making their way while he escorts them off of the docks, so there’s
    only one man left on the dock by the ship. He passes by you as well. They don’t seem interested
    in this. LIAM: (singing) We will, we will, rock you. Rock
    you. MARISHA: So, guy who was left, that guy is an
    asshole, and what’s with that guy that just got stabbed? I feel very unsafe. MATT: “You feel unsafe in Darktow?” MARISHA: No, I’m just saying– MATT: “Welcome to Darktow.” MARISHA: He tried to, I think, rob me? I thought,
    as a pirate, that I had immunity to that? I don’t know, I’m just trying– MATT: He shifts in close and he looks at you real
    closely and goes, “Actually, I don’t think I’ve “seen you around here before.” MARISHA: Actually, technically, I’m new. Great to
    meet you. LIAM: (singing) B-A-N-A-N-A-S! MATT: “We’re going to go ahead and have a
    conversation off the docks. Please follow me.” MARISHA: Sure! Let’s go! MATT: He pats you on the shoulder and starts
    leading you off the dock. MARISHA: You’re fucking welcome. Go, go, go, go,
    go! SAM: How’s her painting going? MATT: Still going. It’s taking her a few minutes.
    You’re still doing your distraction. Travis, you’re doing good. LAURA: Good show. TRAVIS: I’ll open the door. Is there any ice? No?
    Okay. MATT: A few moments pass. When you finish
    painting, the wood falls. While that’s happening, that moment is occurring, you and Yasha, in the
    tavern, are keeping an eye. You watch as one of the crewmates comes walking in rather rapidly and
    goes and talks to somebody in the corner that you recognize from Avantika’s crew. TALIESIN: I think I’m going to join in really
    quickly. Is everything all right? You guys need anything? I’ve been sober all evening so I’m happy
    to help. MATT: “I heard Waldok got stabbed for some
    reason.” TALIESIN: Who got stabbed? MATT: “Waldok!” TALIESIN: Waldok got stabbed? But Waldok’s so
    nice! MATT: “I know!” TALIESIN: Who would stab Waldock? That’s
    terrible! MATT: “Exactly! I’m curious!” TALIESIN: Where did you hear this from? Where did
    this come down from? MATT: “I saw him! He got stabbed! Right out
    there!” and he points out the door and you can see him motioning towards the bar. TALIESIN: Oh, he seems okay, I guess. MATT: You seem him bleeding out. TALIESIN: Come here, we’re going to patch you
    right up. C’mon. I’ll take care of this. TRAVIS: Yeah! TALIESIN: Everybody come on, let’s do this. Yeah,
    how bad is it? MATT: I mean, he’s not dead, but for his level of
    life experience, he’s taken a significant amount of damage and if left it will probably eventually
    get infected. TALIESIN: Okay, I’m going to give him a level two
    Cure Wounds to get him going. That’d ought to heal him, right? MATT: Go for it and roll. TALIESIN: All right, let’s do a level two. Let’s
    see what that looks like. That’s 2d8. Don’t know why I’m being so fuddy-duddy about this. Do I get
    a specialty– no, it’s only when I’m healing myself. Okay, 18. MATT: That’s enough to bring him back. You
    concentrate on him, he winces and you watch as the wounds close up. There’s no mark, no scarring. He
    looks at the wound and goes, “Mr. Clay, thank you “very much.” TALIESIN: Okay, you’re going to want to sit down.
    Take it easy for a while. I wouldn’t get up for like a good half hour. Be very gentle on yourself.
    Why don’t we get this man a drink? MATT: “I appreciate that. You’re too kind,
    really.” Zoen goes “See? No hard feelings, right?” and Waldock decks him across the chin. Zoen falls
    to the ground grabbing the side of his face. TALIESIN: Why don’t you get that man a drink? MATT: “I think I’m going to do that.” He gets up.
    While that’s happening, and that’s happening, and that’s happening. LIAM: (singing)Hast du etwas Zeit fur mich?MATT: What are you guys doing? LAURA: Okay, I’m going to do what I originally
    planned which is to make the hole not look like a perfect hole. To make it look like the planks
    broke or something? MATT: Okay. LAURA: Oh wait, no, should I do that? SAM: They’re going to find a hole. LAURA: Leave the fucking hole the way it is! We’ll
    leave a couple gems in the bed. SAM: Two gems. LAURA: Two gems in the bed. SAM: One gem. I’ll break it in two. MATT: Make a strength check. SAM: 19. MATT: It takes you a few minutes. LAURA: Oh, come on! MATT: You have to take your dagger and score it a
    bit and then try and press it again. Better part of three or four minutes to try to find the right
    edge to bend and break it. LAURA: No! MATT: It does eventually break unevenly into three
    or four small, crumbled pieces. SAM: Leave that. TALIESIN: Someone was eating gems in bed. TRAVIS: It’s even harder to spot them now. LAURA: Perfect. Now we disguise ourselves, yes? SAM: We’re going to cast Disguise Self on each
    other. MATT: Only on oneself, but yes. LAURA: We’ll wrap our arms around each other and
    then disguise ourselves. MATT: There you go. Taking the form of Avantika
    and Ipess, right? LAURA: No. SAM: I’m going to be Keg. MATT: Okay. LAURA: Oh, okay. I’m going to be Molly. SAM: Great. MATT: All right. TALIESIN: That’s loud. Okay. All right. LAURA: In pirate clothes. TALIESIN: Sure! SAM: Pirate Keg, Pirate Molly. LAURA: Yeah. TRAVIS: The most inconspicuous person. LAURA: With a cloak over his head! TALIESIN: Just a purple tiefling. MATT: You guys are disguised– LAURA: I did it. I already said it. Still Pass
    Without A Trace. Still trying to sneak out. TRAVIS: Oh my god. SAM: Up on deck though, and see if anyone’s
    around. MATT: Make a stealth check– sorry, a perception
    check. TALIESIN: You have advantage. SAM: Perception or– what are we? TRAVIS: Perception. SAM: 19. LAURA: 24. 22, lies. MATT: The mist makes it hard to make out much
    detail. You do notice, glancing up, there is an individual in the crow’s nest. SAM: (loading bow) LAURA: No. SAM: No? SAM and LAURA: Shit. SAM: How far up? MATT: I’d say about 40 to 45 feet as an
    estimation. SAM: I’m going to cast Phantasmal Force on that
    person, on that being. MATT: Okay. TALIESIN: I’ve never seen your eyes glaze over
    like that Matt. TRAVIS: What does that do? MATT: All right. What’s your DC? SAM: Intelligence, 14. MATT: DC 14. No, did not succeed with a natural
    eight, plus two, ten. SAM: Describe the crow’s nest to me? MATT: In the main mast of the ship that goes up,
    the crow’s nest is in itself a circular platform at the top that is used primarily for keeping a watch
    on nearby land and details in the sea around, as well as direction. It’s a vantage point for
    someone to keep an eye on the area around the ship. There is somebody stationed up there to keep
    an eye on the ship overnight. Or at least there for as long as their portion of it was. You can’t
    make out the details of the figure from this distance. You just see a figure there. SAM: All right, I will make the figure think that
    his crow’s nest has caught fire, and there are little flames licking around, creeping up the
    sides of it, and surrounding it. MATT: Okay. As you finish the spell, a moment goes
    by and you hear (panicked shouting) “Fuck! Shit!” You look up and you see this individual trying to
    bat their cloak on the sides of this before shouting “Help!” LAURA: Run! We run. MATT: While stealthing? Or just running? SAM: Off the back of the boat. MATT: Okay. They have major disadvantage to try
    and spot you because they’re distracted by the flames. LAURA: Are we being stealthy? SAM: Yeah, we’re stealthing. LAURA: Were stealthing. TRAVIS: Or running? SAM: No, we’re stealthing. LAURA: Quickly. SAM: We’re moving from– LIAM: You’re stealthing. SAM and LAURA: We’re stealthing! MATT: Make stealth checks. SAM: Okay. LAURA: Still Pass Without a Trace. SAM: 36. LAURA: 21. MATT: Okay. You guys both manage to scoot over to
    the edge of the ship. SAM: The seaward side. MATT: The seaward side. All right, You’re heading
    off– LAURA: The seaward side? MATT: It’d be the starboard side. SAM: Yes. The side away from the docks. MATT: Correct. You head over to that which is the
    starboard side of the ship. There’s the ocean below you. A person screaming up top and getting
    more and more frantic. SAM: Jump in! LAURA: Put that book in the bag so it doesn’t get
    wet. MARISHA: Why did I get arrested? LAURA: I don’t know. LIAM: None of us knew about the crow’s nest
    person. LAURA: We jump in. MATT: Yeah, unfortunately perception wasn’t high
    enough. LIAM: (drunken singing) SAM: We’re jumping in. MATT: You both leap off the side into the freezing
    cold ocean water. LAURA: Let’s try to go in quietly. MATT: Still going to make a splash. SAM: Baby seal style. MATT: Thankfully, it’s mostly drowned out by the
    sound of the screaming from the top of the crow’s nest. As you both break the surface and glance
    around the vicinity, you can see some of the torches that are shifting from the other parts of
    the dock to come over and see this commotion that’s happening. The screams get more and more
    intense before they end with a (yell) (impact). As this person felt there was no other recourse with
    the flames gathering around them. Then you hear (screaming). SAM: Swim away. I’ll hold your hand as I walk away
    on the water. TRAVIS: I’m in a great deal of pain! MATT: Yeah, whoever it was, they landed. They’re
    alive, but they’re not doing that well. They broke something on the way down. TALIESIN: How’s that charisma bonus working out
    for you? SAM: I’m lying great. LAURA: This is going perfectly. MARISHA: You shot me! MATT: Now the screaming is less frantic and more a
    pained scream while the rest of the various watchers of the dock start making their way over,
    while you guys are swimming? TALIESIN: I’m wet and upset! Why did you do
    that?! SAM: Just away and around. MATT: Okay, so you’re probably following under the
    docks. All right. Both of you guys make an athletics check. TALIESIN: He’s walking. She’s swimming. MATT: That’s right, you’re walking. LAURA: Oh my god, that was almost a one. But it’s
    not. It’s a 19. MATT: Actually, you didn’t have to make it because
    you’re walking. LAURA: 19. MATT: 19! All right. The water, as it’s coming in,
    the waves are crashing against the rocky edge and shore of Darktow Isle right here. LAURA: Don’t let go, Nott! SAM: I won’t ever let go! MATT: One end of the docks, you can hear the
    footsteps passing overhead. SAM: Oh god! I’m letting go! MATT: They pass by. You guys make it over to the
    edge of the rocks and, with the water pushing, you manage to not be dashed against the rocks to any
    point of personal injury. You manage to climb up. I need you both to make a stealth check to try to
    make your way back onto land without being sighted by any of the nearby guard. LAURA: Natural 20! SAM: 38. (relieved groaning) MATT: All right. You both are– oh, you’re soaking
    wet. LAURA: But Disguise Self, to where we look dry. SAM: I’m probably a bit wet too. MATT: Actually, yeah, because you dove into the
    water before jumping in. SAM: Yeah, I’m wet. MATT: Otherwise you’d have taken the impact damage
    from that. TRAVIS: (impact) TALIESIN: Unless you’d have taken that dex bonus,
    and then nothing would have happened at all! MATT: That’s true. TALIESIN: But you didn’t. SAM: Nope. MATT: It’s all good. You both climb up on there,
    dripping a bit wet, you especially soaking. A lot of the guards and the torches are making their way
    there, other ones are still starting to make sure they aren’t losing track of their post. What are
    you guys doing? SAM: I mean, just calmly walking away, right? Are
    there lots more people coming? MATT: They’re coming toward the screaming and
    yelling. There are still others there that are patrolling and keeping an eye. They don’t all of a
    sudden go: Someone’s yelling! Everyone lose their post! LAURA: Do you think I seem noticeable? SAM: No, you look great. TALIESIN: You’re both wet. LAURA: Yeah, but we’re Disguise Self, so we look
    dry. MATT: That’s true. SAM: You look great. Do I look okay? Light my
    cigarette. LAURA: Yeah, I feel like you may be less
    noticeable than a purple me. SAM: You’ve got a cloak on. LAURA: Okay. LIAM: It’s pandemonium on the docks, right? At
    this point? MATT: It’s borderline, but it’s starting to calm a
    bit. Some of them have gotten up there, and they found the hurt guy. The spell lasts for how long? SAM: Disguise Self? Or– MATT: No, the– SAM: Oh. The Phantasmal Force? MATT: Correct. For one minute, so it’s faded by
    now. As you guys are walking by, you hear the guards going like, “What’s wrong?” He’s like,
    “Ugh! I’m hurt!” He looks up and goes, “But it was “on– It was burning! What the fuck?!” He’s
    confused and in pain and lamenting why he jumped and what’s going on. The guards are trying to calm
    him a bit, and they’re now starting to think something’s up. You can see, now somebody is
    giving out directions to the other guards. Something is definitely not right, and the docks
    are now going into heightened search mode. SAM: Let’s get the fuck out of here, right? LAURA: Yeah. SAM: We’re just going to calmly walk into town? I
    don’t know. MATT: Okay. While you guys are doing that, Caleb,
    you see all this happening. LIAM: Yeah, I would have quieted down with the
    singing and just tried to go more lowkey. I don’t know what’s going on, so I’m still watching the
    boat. MATT: Yeah. Make a perception check. LIAM: And one eye on the Loaded Underwear– What’s
    it called? The Bloated– TRAVIS: Bloated Cup? LIAM: Bloated Cup. Fjord’s Bloated Cup. What did
    you say? Perception? MATT: Yes. LIAM: Still rolling shit tonight. 12. MATT: 12, okay. You’re just watching this whole
    thing unfold. LIAM: Boat. Bloated Cup. Back and forth. Waiting. MATT: You’re lead back to the top of the docks.
    The figure has their hand on your shoulder and calls over somebody else. He goes, “Hey, Waynon!
    Looks like we got someone who’s stowed away here “to Darktow.” MARISHA: I say: Sup, Waynen? MATT: He looks over to you and goes, “What’s your
    business?” MARISHA: I’m with Avantika’s crew. You can ask her
    if you want, but I don’t think you really want to. Pretty sure she’s above your pay grade, am I
    right? MATT: Make an intimidation check. MARISHA: Great fucking intimidation. Nine. MATT: Nine? He doesn’t appear to be shaken by it,
    but at least he finds a bit of truth to what you’re saying. He’s like, “Let her go.” MARISHA: That’s right. MATT: “Don’t go wandering these docks at night by
    yourself for no fucking reason.” MARISHA: Oh, I’m sorry. Are you afraid I’m going
    to stub a toe in the middle of the night? MATT: He just turns around and walks away. LIAM: Quit while you’re ahead, motherfucker. MARISHA: Beau never does. MATT: You guys start heading back, tracking this
    trail of seawater behind you on the docks. Eventually, Beau, you turn around and you see
    Molly and Keg walking your way. MARISHA: I just go: Oh fuck. I just keep walking
    like I don’t know who they are and I pass by them with a glance. SAM: Good evening, madam. MARISHA: Fuck you. (laughter) TRAVIS: No smoke coming out of the cigarette. SAM: Dripping wet. MATT: All right. You all eventually reconvene. You
    eventually complete your time with the captain. TRAVIS: (door slamming) (heavy breathing) I look
    down the stairs. Can I see Caduceus down there? MATT: If you passed by Bouldergut and you looked
    down, yeah. Caduceus is down there. He’s actually in a healthy conversation with one of the members
    of the group. TALIESIN: Talking to the guy. We’re bonding, man.
    These guys are pretty okay once you get to know them. TRAVIS: Yeah, I’ll come down and– A drink? MATT: A round is brought to you. TALIESIN: Weird night. TRAVIS: Hey, Deucey. How we doing? TALIESIN: Well, everything’s not quiet on this
    end. One of our kids apparently got stabbed by– Well, one of the crew stabbed the other crew. I
    can’t imagine why that happened. There’s been no word, but I assume it’s just probably pandemonium
    all over. TRAVIS: Oh, good report. TALIESIN: Everyone’s pretty happy, though. You
    should come down and have a drink with everybody. TRAVIS: Yeah, I’ll just hold my cup and wait for
    something to happen. LAURA: Is anybody in the shit alley? MATT: No. LAURA: We should probably drop our forms. SAM: And dry off. LAURA: Yeah. In the shit alley. MATT: Okay. In the shit alley, as it has now been
    deemed, you drop your various disguises. SAM: Are we still soaking wet? MATT: I mean, you’re damp. SAM: Like a dog, I’ll shake it off a little bit.
    Do you have any spells that can make us dry? TALIESIN: I hope someone has followed this right
    back to the inn, so that’s good. LAURA: (gasps) Oh my god! SAM: Oh no, your weasel’s dead again, isn’t it? LAURA: No. Nott, I have Mending. SAM: What’s that? What does that do? LAURA: It’s a cantrip and I can mend things that
    have holes in them. LIAM: Not a giant hole. LAURA: Not a hole that big. It wouldn’t have
    worked on a hole that big. SAM: Are you saying to me that we made a mistake? LAURA: Everything we did was perfect. SAM: I agree! LAURA: I mean, it went according to plan. SAM: We got a book! LAURA: Shh, hide that. That’s in my bag, anyway. SAM: We got some jewels. LAURA: Oh! We need to hide those too. SAM: These are hot ice! We got to get rid of
    these. LAURA: What the fuck are we going to do? If she
    searches our shit, she’s going to know that we stole. SAM: I know. Don’t worry. We’re going to plant
    them on Allison. Everything’s going to be fine, don’t worry. LAURA: We got to figure this out, like stat. SAM: Figured. Done. Mage Hand. Allison’s pocket.
    We’re clean. LAURA: All right. SAM: Hey, you did good in there. LAURA: You did too, you’re pretty cool! SAM: Yeah, we’re pretty great. LAURA: Okay. We’re going to go into our rooms. LIAM: Charlie Adler busts into the inn and sees
    Caduceus and just stops the door and pulls out a little wire and says: I don’t know where anybody
    is. We have to go to the boat now! Come on! SAM: Who are you talking to? LIAM: Caduceus. MARISHA: Not to the boat! Never to the boat! LIAM: No one told Caleb shit. MARISHA: You saw a lot of shit go down at the
    boat! LIAM: No, I saw people running to the boat in
    danger and you lead off. Pandemonium on the ship and fire on the ship! TALIESIN: I’ll tell you what. Obviously whatever
    went down– we’re going to just go make sure everything’s copacetic back at the boat. We’ll be
    back in just a couple minutes. Just going to make sure everything– MATT: “Okay. Good luck.” TALIESIN: Yeah. We’ll let you know. I’ll walk
    brazenly down to the ship with you. MATT: Okay. As you step out of the inn, you watch
    Nott and Jester walking towards it. LIAM: They dropped their shit? MATT: They did. LIAM: (protestant noise) LAURA: Hi! TALIESIN: We’ll go check it out anyway. SAM: Don’t worry. LAURA: You’re going down there? Don’t go down
    there, Caduceus. TALIESIN: I’m going down. LAURA: No, there’s guards everywhere! MATT: Beau, you probably approached right before
    they did. MARISHA: Sup, guys. How was your night walk? LIAM: It went very well, I take it. MATT: Fjord, you’re sitting over and you watch
    them all talking just outside of the inn. SAM: There was a little hiccup. LAURA: Schmidle of a one. SAM: But we took care of it. MARISHA: Shh. Who’s around? MATT: I mean, there are guards walking– TALIESIN: Do I see a commotion from here? MATT: The commotion seems to have died down at the
    moment. TALIESIN: Nothing crazy going on on our ship? I
    don’t see some figures or anything? MATT: Make a perception check from this distance.
    I’d say with disadvantage from this distance. TALIESIN: Really? MATT: Yeah. TALIESIN: I would never. Well, that’s fine because
    even with a– (counting) 22 with disadvantage. (laughter) TALIESIN: I love this. This is the best character
    ever. MATT: Glancing over, you don’t see any
    torch-bearing guards, but you do see a figure that is doing a visual pass on the deck of the ship. TALIESIN: I might see if there’s a torch-bearer
    walking around really quickly. MATT: You see one that’s maybe 25, 30 feet from
    you that’s just walking through the street. TALIESIN: Excuse me, sir. MATT: Turns around. “Hey.” TALIESIN: We had a little trouble on our ship
    earlier. I was curious if everything was all right. I heard a little commotion. MATT: “I don’t know. It’s not my jurisdiction
    tonight.” TALIESIN: Well, if I wanted to find out what went
    down do you know who I would talk to? MATT: “Probably one of the guys closer to the
    ship.” TALIESIN: I’ll be right back. MATT: “Okay.” TALIESIN: I’m going to go find a guard and ask
    them what’s up. MATT: Okay. SAM: Hey, just throwing it out there, there seemed
    to be a couple of loose ends that we need to tie up. Can you make us an alibi? LAURA: What do you mean? SAM: Like, suggest to someone that we were
    drinking with them all night, in case it’s asked? LAURA: They’ll know. SAM: Oh, well then don’t do that. Never mind. MARISHA: Who’s really drunk, though? Is there
    someone real drunk? SAM: I assume a lot of people down there. MARISHA: Is anyone real drunk? Look real drunk in
    the tavern? MATT: Make a perception check. Or actually, this
    would be an insight check. MARISHA: That was part of our crew. Part of the
    Squalleater. MATT: Make an insight check. MARISHA: Jesus. That’s a natural one. MATT: You only see one figure you recognize from
    the crew. MARISHA: Oh, sorry. It’s a four. Ten? MATT: Okay. You only see one figure that you
    recognize from the crew and they are recovering from a series of stab wounds and are deep in their
    cups. MARISHA: Oh. What’s-his-name. MATT: Waldok. MARISHA: I sit down next to Waldok with another
    drink and hand him a drink. MATT: He takes it and goes, “Thanks!” (hiccup) MARISHA: Holy shit, man. I am so sorry we couldn’t
    have been there to protect you from these attackers. MATT: “Attackers? It’s just fucking him.” He
    points over at the other guy who’s just like, “Stop rubbing it in. I’m sorry! You fucking jumped
    into the middle of my room at night while I was “sleeping. What else am I supposed to do?” He’s
    like, “Not stab me, asshole!” MARISHA: Who’s the other guy’s name? MATT: “That’s Zoen.” MARISHA: I’m sorry we couldn’t have been there to
    protect you from Zoen. What a dick. I mean, we were here all night fucking trashed, so– If we
    had only been there. SAM: The best. MATT: Make a deception check. LIAM: The slow creep on your face, Matt! Come on,
    high! MARISHA: 15? Could’ve been better. MATT: Okay, you talk to them, about how you’re sad
    you couldn’t have been there. You can see Waldok’s like– MARISHA: We were drunk. Here. MATT: Waldok’s not really caring as much, more
    just like, “No, it’s fucking his fault!” and Zoen’s like, “Oversharing?” Caduceus? TALIESIN: I just want to find out what was up from
    somebody. MATT: One of the guards is keeping an eye over
    there with the torch. He’s like, “Yeah, it looks “like there’s a break-in of some sort; a guy was
    stabbed, got him safe. Another man broke his “fucking leg and he’s being taken care of.” TALIESIN: Really? Does he need healing? I can do
    that, or otherwise. MATT: “Sure, I guess. This way.” TALIESIN: Yeah, I’ll take care of it real quick. MATT: He brings you over to the dock and you look
    over and there’s this guy, you know his name is Bart, he’s one of the deckhands, and he’s over on
    the side right now just going (pained groaning) and you can see, it’s snapped. Like, bone
    protruded and everything. TRAVIS: Oh, compound! TALIESIN: Oh in that case, Healing Word, level
    three. MATT: Okay, you may have to set the bone first. ALL: Woo! MATT: Make a medicine check. TALIESIN: Make a medicine check? SAM: Don’t accidentally turn it to fungus. TALIESIN: Yeah, that’ll do, that’s a 23. LAURA: Oh. TALIESIN: I love this character so much. MATT: You walk up to him and he’s like, “No no no
    no!” TALIESIN: It’s all right. MATT: (pained gasp) (relieved gasp) TALIESIN: There you go. MATT: (gasp) He looks down and you can see there’s
    a wave of relief on him as he doesn’t have this like protruding fracture. It’s set. Still, you can
    see the bone, but it’s much better-looking than it was. TALIESIN: Let’s give him a Cure Wounds level three
    just to– MATT: Go for it. TALIESIN: Or, what does he look like, a level two
    or a level three to you? MATT: With that medicine check? A level two should
    be sufficient. TALIESIN: A level two should be sufficient. All
    right. Let’s just take care of this. Can you tell me what happened, son? MATT: “I don’t know. I was up in the crow’s nest
    and suddenly it–” TALIESIN: 21. MATT: 21? “Suddenly it’s– oh my god. Thank you!” TALIESIN: While you were up the crow’s nest, what
    happened? MATT: “It was catching fire! I was trying to put
    it out, but it just kept growing and growing and I “could feel the heat, and it was–” TALIESIN: It looks fine up there. MATT: “I know, I don’t–” TALIESIN: What did you– what was the last 24
    hours for you? What did you? MATT: “What do you mean?” TALIESIN: I mean like, I don’t– oh, no. MATT: “What?” TALIESIN: (sighs) I may have left some of the
    fruit that we picked up in our last stop in the kitchen. I don’t know what you’ve been eating for
    the last– that’s maybe my fault. I really hope it isn’t, but– MATT: Make a deception check. TALIESIN: Seven. MATT: He goes like, “No, I don’t think it’s that.
    It was sudden and it was intense, and then it was “gone! It’s fucking crazy.” TALIESIN: I’m going to be worried– I’m going to
    check to make sure I’ve got all this, just in case, because that sounds awfully familiar. Do you
    need a drink? MATT: “Yeah.” TALIESIN: Come on. We’re going to bring you back,
    it’s okay. MATT: (groans) He stands up and like he’s leaning
    on you for support, but once he gets to his foot, it’s fine and he’s like, “Oh, man!” TALIESIN: Poor guy. Come on. MATT: All right. You lead him over. TALIESIN: I’m bringing back– I’m going to just
    sort of– yeah. Bring him back, and then tell everybody. MATT: Some of the port guard are like going
    through the ship now, and they’re going through– TALIESIN: I’m definitely going to tell everyone my
    fruit theory, because I’m down a fruit. TRAVIS: Well, shall we, you know, turn in for the
    night? Seems like it’s been a crazy one. SAM: Sure has. TALIESIN: I’m tired. LIAM: Charlie Adler concurs. (laughter) TALIESIN: He’s very stern for Charlie Adler. LIAM: No, it’s Caleb. TRAVIS: We’ll all pile into one room before we
    separate for the night. MATT: Okay. You all gather into one of the
    chambers. MARISHA: We kind of stagger a bit, though. LAURA: Should we look around the room and make
    sure nobody can spy on us? Look for peepholes in the room. MARISHA: Look for invisible peoples in the room. MATT: Make a perception check. SAM: I’ll do the same. TRAVIS: Or how about– MARISHA: Fucking fuck! Seven. MATT: Lucky seven! TALIESIN: Don’t you have a spell you can cast that
    solves this problem? MATT: The room seems fairly secure. LIAM: That what? Detects a problem? LAURA: That keeps sound in. TRAVIS: What’d you find? SAM: Good stuff. TRAVIS: Oh. Okay. SAM: We got a book. Well, I don’t have it. LAURA: We got a book. Nott found it. SAM: Can any of you read this? TRAVIS: Well, first– MARISHA: I look over his shoulder. MATT: Okay. It has some sketches in it. The
    language appears to be some sort of either a cipher or a personal shorthand. What languages do
    you know? LIAM: Wherever they are. Celestial, Common,
    Sylvan. With my experience tinkering with Comprehend Languages, would I believe this is
    something I could–? MATT: Probably, yeah. LIAM: Yeah. All right. I begin casting the ritual
    spell. MARISHA: I know Deep Speech. TRAVIS: Was it hidden, where you found it? Should
    we detect to see if it has magic anyway, like a trace on it? SAM: It was hidden behind a panel, like a false
    panel in the wall. LAURA: Yeah. TALIESIN: If you just bring everything out really
    quickly, I’ll cast Detect Magic on there. SAM: Oh, nice! TRAVIS: Yeah, just empty your pockets. Let’s just
    make sure nobody’s following this stuff. LIAM: It’ll take me 11 minutes to be able to read
    this if I can. TALIESIN: I’ll cast Detect Magic in the meantime. SAM: There’s these jewels, too. LAURA: When we were looking for letters and words
    and stuff, we ended up breaking her desk and we stole a bunch of jewels– TRAVIS: That’s not as lo-fi as we were
    discussing. LAURA: Well, and then the room filled with poison
    and then we put a hole in the floor and we fell. MARISHA: Oh. SAM: Then we caused another guard to stab someone,
    and another guard to jump to his death. TRAVIS: We saw them. TALIESIN: Nah, he’s fine. LAURA: Then we jumped in the water and we got
    away. MARISHA: That’s pretty awesome. LAURA: The thing is, though, Avantika’s going to
    definitely know that somebody stole her stuff. SAM: But we can turn thisprobleminto a
    “proble-tunity”, and we can take these jewels that she will definitely know came from her, and plant
    them on someone else to just sort of– we could plant them on this Allison person who she doesn’t
    like already! MARISHA: She is a bitch. SAM: Or maybe on one of her own crew, and have
    them killed. TRAVIS: Yeah, well, isn’t Allison not cool with
    Avantika, and the enemy of my enemy is my friend, right? So why would we want to get Allison in
    trouble? SAM: Oh. TRAVIS: Yeah. TALIESIN: Oh, wow. SAM: We could plant them on someone that we don’t
    like? TRAVIS: Sure. Yeah. LAURA and TRAVIS: But who? SAM: How about Jamedi Cosko? I don’t like that
    guy. LAURA: I like Jamedi; I thought he was nice. TRAVIS: Maybe we just hold onto them for now. They
    came in containers, right? LAURA: Well, yeah, but– SAM: We don’t want to hold on– LAURA: If we hold on and Avantika’s like “Let’s
    everybody empty their pockets” and we have them! SAM: Yeah, these are hot rocks here. TRAVIS: Are they just gems, or are they specific
    pieces of jewelry? TALIESIN: We’re literally looking at them right
    now, and I Detected Magic before we opened the boxes. MATT: Okay. You open the boxes. They’re a series
    of gems, some rougher and probably been scrounged up and found that are with some scrapes, imperfect
    but still valuable. Maybe three of them that are still well cut and have not been given any
    abrasions. There is a dull green jade necklace that does emit a minor magical essence to it. TALIESIN: That one’s got a little bit of tingle to
    it. I’d be worried about that one. Why don’t you take a look at that really quickly? LIAM: Caleb is not listening to anyone. He is
    sprinkling pinches of salt and soot in a circle around the book. TALIESIN: That book’s not worth its circle of
    salt. SAM: We could destroy these gems and smash them up
    into smaller gems. TRAVIS: If you’re going to plant them on anybody,
    Vera would be a good candidate. SAM: Vera? Why do you think Vera? TRAVIS: Well, because she’s a bitch. We got to get
    her out of here. She’s, you know, wants my job. SAM: Isn’t that just because you stole her job?
    That seems like a legitimate beef. LAURA: I think she’s in love with Avantika, too. SAM: How do you know that? LAURA: Because she pulled me aside and she was
    like, “I don’t like Fjord and I’ll kill him if you “want me to.” SAM: She said she’s going to kill him?! TALIESIN: Perception check. Insight check. MATT: Make an insight check. Make a deception
    check. TALIESIN: I’m pretty low, so what do you got? LAURA: Eight. TALIESIN: 13. MATT: You can tell that she’s lying. LAURA: Okay, so maybe she didn’t say that. But I
    still don’t think she likes Fjord very much. SAM: Well then we should roast her. TRAVIS: Yeah, we’redefinitelygoing to plant it
    on her. Cause some commotion at the top. Caleb, what do you got? LIAM: (mutters) TRAVIS: Oh, it hasn’t been time. MATT: We’ll say by now, you’ve completed it. LIAM: Well, it’s up to you! MATT: I know. So you can respond. LIAM: (poof) All the soot and salt ignites, and
    then suddenly, whoa! What’s it say? MATT: As you go through it, it’s hard to follow
    since it’s shorthand, like it’s broken sentences and it’s pieces. They look to be notes from
    dreams. MARISHA: Oh, shit. SAM: That could be good stuff. MARISHA: (gasp) Yes, yes it could! TRAVIS: Ooh! MARISHA: It’s got the apricot tree! TRAVIS: Please be an almanac! Sorry. MATT: It goes through discussions of mentions of
    Vandren. Mentions of being given the mark. The eye, on her person. After a ritual that was shown
    to her by Vandren, the dreams began. The dreams involved this great eye coming to her, with
    phrases written down: Provoke. Consume. Learn. Reward. It begins to discuss images that involve
    having to fight through dark waters, having to follow signs, being promised power with gifts and
    actions that show leadership and drive towards this entity. It spoke about Vandren guiding her,
    and then spoke about him getting cold feet. Spoke on him mistrusting the dreams, and his weakness.
    It spoke on an attempt to then gift Vandren as a sacrifice, but he got away. LIAM: So Caleb would, seeing this play out as he
    reads, would explain it all very carefully, and delicately, because he knows how conflicted a
    subject, how charged a subject it would be for Fjord. But does tell everyone in the room
    everything. MATT: Then discusses the search for Vandren. For
    months and months, to no avail. Eventually changing focus, to instead continue to improve the
    joyous boons, and earn the yellow light of the eye. More dreams, with patterns of figures in her
    way. People that were close to her, that she felt were barricades, chains that held her back, and
    getting rid of them. You’re not entirely certain what “getting rid of them” means, but at least out
    of the path. Finding others that begin to also learn of the joys and the promise of ruling the
    sea and how, no matter how much Darktow is the center of the Revelry, and the power of the Plank
    King, who can possibly not choose to bend the knee to those who control the oceans they sail on. It
    then goes on to talk about other notes and scavenged bits, talking about the finding of
    Urukaxl. Of the difficulties in hiring people that would go there. The hiring of Jamedi to search out
    finally, over time. You find some other notes about another location, from another dream she
    had, that involves three land masses of different shapes. There’s a few notes and questions around
    it, but one of them is saying, “Archipelago?” Seems to mark these as a possible– SAM: There’s three land masses, right there! MARISHA: Nah. LIAM: She’s cooked. MATT: Then it goes into a few brief phrases about
    the newcomers. Discussing how the Mist was taken. It’s not a lot written in this page. SAM: Which one’s her favorite? MATT: All it says is, “I’ve found another chosen.
    Perhaps this one will be more useful than Vandren.” SAM: And I fucked him. MATT: It does not say that. That’s where the notes
    finish. LIAM: Minor detail: in Caleb’s deciphering of all
    the fragments, was there any sense that there was any kind of romantic relationship between Avantika
    and Vandren? Or it’s unclear? MATT: It is very unclear. LIAM: Okay. TRAVIS: What language was that in? TALIESIN: What was the necklace, while we’re
    here? MATT: It’s a personal cipher. TRAVIS: Oh. LIAM: Yeah, her own cipher. TRAVIS: That’s not great for us. LIAM: That’s not helpful at all. TALIESIN: Well. Really, what’s the necklace before
    we go any further to make sure it’s not a come-find-my-shit? LIAM: Which necklace would that be? LAURA: The jade necklace LIAM: First time I’m seeing it, not really but,
    just give me ten minutes. TALIESIN: Is there any part in the book that is
    actually a cipher for its own. Okay. MATT: Glancing through, it looks like you either
    learn it here or whatever it would be used to try to decode it is not present in the book. SAM: I don’t want to say that we’re the best
    detectives because that’s already– LAURA: A given. SAM: — established fact. But could this be that
    we just got promoted? LAURA: To what? SAM: Commissioner. I don’t know. Could be. We just
    cracked the case again. LAURA: Cracked the case. Fjord, are you as crazy
    as she is? Because holy shit. LIAM: Here’s the question. Could brainiac Caleb
    with this book, which is her own coded cipher, Comprehend Languages with enough time try to study
    the recurrence of vowel sounds, consonance sounds, and try to create a key to this book? MATT: You get the sense that this written cipher
    is not a verbal language. It is specifically written for her own notes and own purpose. LIAM: Yeah? MATT: So you couldn’t speak it, but if you want to
    go ahead and decode it? LIAM: But people break codes– MATT: Yeah, I’m saying you couldn’t. It wouldn’t
    be able to–Sorry, I misunderstood. You couldn’t speak it. Go ahead and make an intelligence
    check. TALIESIN: It would be amazing if you pulled this
    off. LIAM: I’ve rolled shit all night. Every roll. TRAVIS: You’re due one. TALIESIN: But not this one. LIAM: Natural 20! (cheering) MATT: Fuck, dude! Fuck! TRAVIS: Rise, baby, rise! MATT: What does that put you at a total? LIAM: Oh, pretty good. Straight intelligence,
    right? MATT: Correct. LIAM: 28. MATT: Intelligence modifier is eight? LIAM: Yeah, it bumped up to 20 when I leveled up. MATT: It would be plus five then. LAURA: Not your saving throw. LIAM: Saving throw, sorry I was looking at the
    wrong place. That’s correct. 25. MATT: That is exactly the DC you would have needed
    to do this. It is set at a very hard DC. You only could have done this with a 20, you motherfucker. LAURA: You have maxed out intelligence. MATT: Goddamn it, okay! All right! No, here we go!
    It’ll take you the better part of the night. You probably won’t sleep which means you won’t get
    your spells back. TALIESIN: Take a second to identify the necklace
    so we don’t get– SAM: Don’t bother him! TRAVIS: What if the necklace as a trace on it? TALIESIN: Yeah. MATT: It’ll take you the night to complete it. You
    will not be able to sleep, which means you won’t get your spells back and you’ll suffer a point of
    exhaustion. LIAM: That’s fine. I would like to– Because I was
    asking you a question and then suddenly it was happening, right? MATT: I’m just letting you what would take. You
    know you can do this. LIAM: Let’s say Caduceus gives Caleb the necklace.
    He’ll take ten minutes to figure out what this jade necklace is and spend the night decoding this
    book. SAM: Wow. MARISHA: Holy shit. SAM: Best plan ever. TRAVIS: O for six in the series and you crank one
    at the bottom of the ninth. MARISHA: You got a book! LIAM: It’s not a book. LAURA: That’s a necklace. LIAM: It’s a necklace. TRAVIS: Oh wow! MARISHA: But you still get a book! MATT: Immediate excitement and disappointment. MARISHA: You still get a book, though! That’s what
    I was saying! TALIESIN: Here’s the thing: are we going to remove
    the mention of you from the book? LAURA: It doesn’t say the name. LIAM: Just says, “found someone special.” TALIESIN: There’s no way of inferring within the
    book– MATT: It doesn’t have the name Fjord. TALIESIN: But it doesn’t connect the newcomers to
    the new chosen. MATT: Hmm? TALIESIN: One could not infer that the new chosen
    was part of the newcomers from the way she wrote it or no? Is it separated thoughts? MATT: Not necessarily. TALIESIN: All right. Worst-case scenario is we
    could mend a page and it will remove the ink if we want to delete anything. LIAM: This is like that around your neck except
    it’s specific to warding off poison. No poison. TALIESIN: It’s very helpful. That might be
    either– LIAM: It could help any one of us, really. Would
    you like it, Nott? SAM: It’s pretty! Oh, but wait. It’s a hot rock. TRAVIS: We’re not keeping anything on our persons.
    We need to hide it, bury it. TALIESIN: In the best case scenario, I would say
    if we could hide this is someone else’s room underneath their bed. SAM: We could put it in the bag of holding or
    whatever. TALIESIN: I would love for these to be in somebody
    else’s room. TRAVIS: Uh-huh. You dump that bag out or just go
    searching for a necklace, stick your hand it, it comes right out. LAURA: It’ll come right out. LIAM: I say we tie it to a rock and drop the rock
    off a specific dock, and maybe we’re lucky and it’s still there later. TRAVIS: Or we could old-school bury it under a
    tree, right? Mark it? Same diff. TALIESIN: It’s still going to be findable to
    anybody who’s looking for it, though. I would really recommend putting it, I don’t know,
    somewhere where we don’t mind it being very specifically found, especially if we’re trying
    to– TRAVIS: Frame somebody? TALIESIN: Well, I hate to put it that way, but uh,
    I don’t know. This seems– TRAVIS: Well, listen. I am all for putting Vera in
    a bad light, right? Avantika is going to want to know who did this. Yeah, Tiff. Old Tiff Fanny.
    Might as well put it on her, right? SAM: Do we know where she’s staying, which room
    she’s in? TRAVIS: No. LIAM: We have to be able to have someone point the
    finger at her, though, because what happens if she finds it herself, later? TALIESIN: That doesn’t matter. It’s still in her
    room. LIAM: But if she finds it, she could throw it out.
    She could sell it. She could say, I found this in my room. I mean, that’s unpredictable. I mean, we
    can’t control that. TRAVIS: No, but, maybe we’re thinking too
    small-ball. If you can actually make a translation of that thing, that’s the frame we’ve been looking
    for. We take that to the Plank King, we’re going to get all the head start we can get. We know
    where the other peach tree is now, so– MARISHA: Mmm-hmm. LAURA: Apricots, Fjord. TRAVIS: It’s apples and peaches, so you know. MARISHA: Between apples and peaches. TALIESIN: We have to make sure that you survive
    long enough to get it there. I mean, I wish you’d just grabbed the book. That would make life more
    easy. LAURA: If– I know, we shouldn’t have grabbed
    everything. SAM: What, the jewels? We can just throw them in
    the ocean. LAURA: We could just throw them in the ocean. TRAVIS: Yeah. SAM: We could snoop– We could wait until we see
    Vera at breakfast tomorrow and just– Right? She’s staying here. TRAVIS: Yeah, I think it’s too dangerous to try
    and plant it on her. It’s adding one step that we don’t need. MARISHA: I agree with that. TRAVIS: I think we take it, once you’re
    finished– LIAM: This is the key. Anything else is a
    distraction, can only cause wrinkles, so we ditch it. Maybe somewhere where it can be found again,
    but it is not as important as this book is. So, we solve this, and her goose is cooked. MARISHA: Yeah. TRAVIS: Yeah. I agree. SAM: Except if we bring this to the Plank King,
    it’s admitting that we broke into the ship and stole it. MARISHA: We don’t need to take that to the Plank
    King if Caleb knows the language. TALIESIN: Yeah, we do. LIAM: We do, though. SAM: We do. MARISHA: Why? She could ford anything that we
    want– Forge. She could forge– TALIESIN: We still need to prove the book. SAM: We still need proof that this came from her,
    that she wrote this. MARISHA: We have her signature, let’s forge it. SAM: But that’s fake. TALIESIN: That’s too much. I feel like we can take
    the book to him. I think if we say that we knew about the plot, we suspected, and were looking for
    proof– SAM: Yeah. That’s good, I like that. LIAM: I have a question for the group, because I
    don’t remember. Did Beauregard share with the group that she got tapped by the Plank King? SAM: She would’ve shared that, right? MARISHA: I probably would have. Yeah. MATT: Well, now would be the time to share it if
    you hadn’t. MARISHA: So by the way, I got tapped on the
    shoulder by the Plank King. He’s looking for dirt on Avantika. SAM: What!? MARISHA: I know. Totally mind-blowing. I know you
    had no clue. TRAVIS: I don’t think it does, right? As Beau has
    appropriately stated many times, snitches get stitches. If we walk that in there, the Plank King
    might just be looking for disloyal motherfuckers to hang up by their toes. We need to find a way to
    either message that, to send via messenger with the book and a codex that you’ve created, and let
    him be able to see the evidence for himself. SAM: We could drop it in Allison’s mailbox and
    say, hey, here’s all the proof you need to destroy Avantika. MARISHA: I don’t think we need to do that. I think
    we just drop it in the Plank King’s– TRAVIS: We’re assuming that she wants to destroy
    her. SAM: Well, did you see the way they looked at each
    other? TRAVIS: Yeah, maybe they need to (yowl) get it on,
    you know? LIAM: Maybe we send Frumpkin with this stuff in
    tow, to his little perch with a note. An anonymous note. LAURA: Yeah. I like it. MARISHA: I think we copy the contents of the
    book. TALIESIN: We have a copy of the contents of the
    book. LAURA: Caleb’s brain. MARISHA: That’s what I’m saying, we copy the
    contents of the book. TRAVIS: A physical copy or up in the dome? LIAM: I have a copy. In my noodle. MARISHA: Sure, as long as you think it’ll last
    there. LIAM:Ja, I can write it down. MARISHA: I will say, the Plank King offered me
    some good cash to rat out Avantika. SAM: Yeah, he was asking for a snitch. MARISHA: He was literally asking for a snitch.
    Now– TRAVIS: True. SAM: That seems legit. That seems legit and
    honest. He was making an honest– Right? Did you get the honest vibe from Plankie? MARISHA: No. Nothing about any of these people is
    honest. TALIESIN: I think he’d kill both of them. I think
    sending it with– Just sending it to him and just giving it to him– LIAM: Well, it could be an anonymous note. Or we
    could send Frumpkin once we leave here, and you could sign it, from Beauregard. TALIESIN: I would almost say, if we could give him
    the whole kit and kaboodle, everything that was stolen, top to bottom, with a note saying this is
    the full– MARISHA: I know what to sign. LIAM: Spill it, girl. Spill it. MARISHA: Just write it up, and I’ll sign it. SAM: Ooh, who knows what it’ll be. TRAVIS: What? SAM: She’s keeping us in suspense. MARISHA: I’ll simply sign it with: How much? TRAVIS: To go with the package? MARISHA: To go with the package. LIAM: To go with this, once I have deciphered it
    for them. MARISHA: Mm-hmm. Unless we want zero
    implications– TRAVIS: Yeah, that swings back to us a little
    bit. TALIESIN: I say translate the one page, give the
    cipher so that they can figure it out on their own. Let’s give the whole thing to him, just all
    the jewels, all the box, the whole thing top to bottom. LIAM: Avantika’s coming for your throat. This is
    the evidence, do with it what you will. We go to the pomegranate tree. TRAVIS: Yes. Yeah. I don’t know how we get out of
    here, but we’re going to try. MARISHA: We need the Mist. TALIESIN: We’ll be fine. TRAVIS: Well, we need to wait until they apprehend
    her. SAM: Then we can take her boat. TALIESIN: Then we can take our boat. TRAVIS: We do something. LIAM: We could also add to this note that Frumpkin
    delivers that Avantika– Here is your proof that Avantika wants your throat; the whole crew is
    complicit. LAURA: We’re part of the crew. TRAVIS: Oh boy. You know– Okay. Just throwing it
    out there, big picture, okay, because there are two goals on that map. One is the peach, the other
    is the peach tree. If we go to one and she goes to the other, and let’s say she gets deferred
    adjudication and gets out just a little bit after us, she might be waiting for us at one or the
    other. I’m just saying. SAM: But then we’ll face her head on. TALIESIN: Let’s let them make any insinuations
    they want. The crew will fall the way they will. Again, I think giving too much is too much. The
    guy’s itching for a reason to get rid of her. Let’s give him what he wants. No conditions, no
    terms. Nothing. TRAVIS: Let’s just do that. Let’s let Caleb do his
    thing, and we’ll see what the morning does. Where are we keeping the gems and everything else in the
    meantime? TALIESIN: In the safe, maybe. SAM: Just one– One other consideration. TRAVIS: The lead safe? Do we still have that? In
    the bag? MATT: Well, the safe in the bag you still have,
    yeah. SAM: One other consideration, just throwing it out
    there. We’re all spitballing here, right? LAURA: Big lead safe, not in the bag. MATT: The big one you ordered, yeah, that wouldn’t
    have gone in there. LAURA: But the little box that we have the thing
    in, yeah. MATT: Yeah. SAM: You know that page that you were telling us
    about that says, the three land masses might be the Grand Archipelago? Maybe, when you’re
    translating, that becomes four land masses and a different place? TALIESIN: We’re not going to translate the whole
    book, just one page. TRAVIS: No, if she gets the book back– TALIESIN: Well, how is she going to get the book
    back? TRAVIS: We do have the lead safe. The
    Dodecahedron’s in it. SAM: We’re going to translate one page? LIAM: No, here’s the thing. If we just give them a
    page– SAM: No, it’s got to be the whole book. MARISHA: No, no, no. He’s saying we send a cipher
    and a translated page with the entire book. TALIESIN: Does that make sense? MARISHA: So that they can then take the time with
    their smart people to translate the rest of the book. TALIESIN: He’s making the cipher. MARISHA: No, he knows the cipher. LAURA: Oh no, it’s getting late. I’m getting
    confused. LIAM: I am going to make a cipher that can be used
    to decode this book. If we send a cipher and the book, they can take time to read the entire
    thing. MARISHA: Correct. TALIESIN: Let’s rip a few pages out. LIAM: Hmm. MARISHA: They’ll be able to tell, unless we do
    Jester’s hint, where we Mend a few pages and get rid of some ink. SAM: I would Mend the page that has the thing
    about where the peach tree is. MARISHA: So let’s just do that, and the rest of
    the plan stays the same. TRAVIS: Yeah. Make it so. LIAM:Ja, that’s good. MARISHA: Break! LIAM: But we’ll leave immediately. SAM: We are so good at this! TRAVIS: Well, once she’s apprehended. LIAM: Correct. TRAVIS: Yeah, okay. We’ll send some food and water
    up your way. LIAM:Ja. Goodnight. MATT: All right, so who’s holding what? TRAVIS: The jewels in the containers go in the
    lead safe. SAM: Where does that go? TRAVIS: In the Bag of Holding. MATT: Okay. LIAM: I take out the silver thread first. MATT: All right. SAM: Are we all staying in this room tonight? TALIESIN: No. I’m going to my room. TRAVIS: Is it stupid to be literally down the hall
    decoding this journal all night from where Avantika’s staying? LAURA: Too late. SAM: Well, we’ve got the silver thread up. She
    can’t get in. TRAVIS: It’s just a warning system, right? It
    doesn’t keep her out. TALIESIN: It’ll wake us up, though. MARISHA: It’ll wake us up. So who’s guarding
    Caleb? SAM and MARISHA: I’ll guard Caleb. TRAVIS: So will Yasha. MATT: All right, so you guys will take sleeping
    shifts. MARISHA: Yeah. MATT: Mark yourself with one point of
    exhaustion, Caleb. You don’t recover spells. The rest of you get a full rest. LIAM: I only used one. SAM and MARISHA: That’s good. TALIESIN: Oh, new spells. SAM: I attack Fjord, sneak attack damage! Pretty
    good. (knocking) MARISHA: What’s that? Where is that? (knocking continues) MATT: To each of your doors, shortly after
    sunrise. SAM: Oh. What’s Caleb up to? MATT: He’s just finishing making most of the
    cipher. SAM: Hide that shit, hide that shit! Hide that
    shit! MATT: All right, so you have to have the book to
    make the cipher. So you go ahead and go find Jester? Are you guys in the same room? LAURA: I was sleeping in the room. LIAM: I wasn’t working on the book and the cipher
    all at once, all through the night? MATT: That would’ve been– That’s the process that
    happened. LIAM: That’s what I’m saying, yeah. MATT: You hand it to Jester to go ahead and hide? LIAM:Ja. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Sorry. LAURA: Is there anything in the room that seems
    like it could be hollow or anything? MATT: How so? LAURA: I’m looking for somewhere that I can put a
    hole in it, hide the jewels in there, and then Mend it so that it won’t look like anything ever
    touched it. But I’ll know where they are. MATT: Make an investigation check. This would be
    perception, I guess. TALIESIN: I thought– Okay, we’re– Okay, new
    plan. Sure. LAURA: Do I get advantage still, if this was last
    night? MATT: No, it only lasts for an hour. LAURA: Okay. 13. MATT: 13. Looking around, no. The room is shoddy
    in some ways, but it doesn’t have large holes you can hide gems in. SAM: It’s in the haversack. It’s okay. LAURA: Yeah, but if I get searched– TRAVIS: It’s in the safe, right? TALIESIN: It’s in the safe. LAURA: Yeah. TRAVIS: Lead should block it. LAURA: Yeah, and you don’t think she’s going to
    go, “Open this safe?” SAM: She can’t pull the safe unless she knows it’s
    in there. LAURA: If she turns the bag over and empties it
    out, everything comes out. TALIESIN: That’s not true. TRAVIS: Yes it is. LAURA: If you turn the bag inside out– TALIESIN: Everything comes out? TRAVIS: Yep. LAURA: Okay. Okay. This was last night. I was
    looking for a place to hide. MATT: A voice comes to the room and goes, “Hey!
    Wake up!” TALIESIN: What’s going on, man? Hey. Good
    morning. LAURA: What? TRAVIS: Caduceus and I will open the door to our
    room. MATT: All right. You see Bouldergut out there with
    one of the guards and Willow Whisk, who’s the cook. Jeremiah, who’s rubbing his eyes. Bouldergut
    goes, “All hands on deck.” TRAVIS: Now? MATT: “Company meeting.” TRAVIS: Yeah, sure. Let us get our shit together. TALIESIN: I’ll go get dressed. MATT: “Now.” TRAVIS: Okay. TALIESIN: I’ll grab my stuff. TRAVIS: Grabbing our stuff. MATT: Goes to the next door, says the same thing
    through the doorway. SAM: Hello? MATT: “All hands on deck! Company meeting!” SAM: On the deck of the ship? MATT: “Yeah. Yes.” SAM: All right. Aye aye. We’ll see you there in,
    what, a couple hours? MATT: Pets you on the head a little bit. SAM: That’s fine. MATT: “Eh heh heh.” Goes to every room and says
    the same deal. MARISHA: Okay, what are we going to do? LAURA: What does the hallway look like that all
    the rooms are in? MATT: It’s a long hallway; series of chambers,
    most of the doors closed. Looks to be four and four, and there’s a stairway that leads up to a
    third level. SAM: Want me to throw it on the roof? MARISHA: Can we send Frumpkin now with the
    package? Just send him now, out the window. LIAM: Right this very minute, he’s a one-ounce
    owl. SAM: He needs to change. TALIESIN: How long does that take? LIAM: Ten minutes. SAM: We’ve got ten minutes. MARISHA: Go! Go. Go, go, go. LIAM: Stall for me. SAM: What about the jewels? Should we get rid of
    the jewels? TALIESIN: The whole thing. MARISHA: Send it with the book. MATT: The next minute goes by, and two more
    figures show up and they go, “We’re going to the “ship now, gather your things. There’s no more
    waiting. Come on.” LAURA: Okay, okay. SAM: We’ll do it on the way. LAURA: I have to get dressed, that’s all. That’s
    the thing MATT: You get a sense from the vocality here that
    things are not right. Probably relating to events that transpired through the evening. MARISHA: Gee, I wonder. LAURA: Okay. TRAVIS: You could just pop out of the room and
    meet us on the way. SAM: Well yeah, they’re not in the room. Do you
    want to pop out of the room? TALIESIN: Pop out of the room that– TRAVIS: No, I mean Jester pops out of the room
    with the bag and leave it somewhere, then meet us on the way to the ship. SAM: Oh that. The haversack? TRAVIS: Dimension door the fuck out of the room. SAM: Well what are we doing with the book and
    stuff? TRAVIS: Not now. MATT: By the way, all of your doors now are being
    held open and they’re expectantly waiting. The crew doesn’t trust you, and they haven’t really
    since you’ve been here. They’re not like, “Cool, “guys, let’s go!” There’s very much a, “We’re
    getting everybody in there and shit, there’s going “to be conversations.” TRAVIS: There’s no time. We’re going down. MATT: You gather your things, head outside.
    Bouldergut’s keeping a watch from behind. Other members of the crew are being gathered and ushered
    in, as well as the crew from the Mistake and Orly. Everyone’s being brought over towards the docks. SAM: Do you want me to sleight of hand throw the
    bag down an alley as we walk? LAURA: The whole bag? SAM: Sure. TALIESIN: Oof. SAM: Got to get rid of it. TRAVIS: No! SAM: We’ve gotta get rid of it! TRAVIS: No. I’d rather fight over it than lose a
    check, just going like, “Uh!” SAM: I’m super fast. TRAVIS: All right. Do what you’re going to do. LAURA: I don’t want to lose the whole haversack. TRAVIS: Do what you’ve got to do. LAURA: I do not want to lose the whole haversack.
    Nope. It’s got the Dodecahedron in it. SAM: Just toss it, and then we’ll come back for
    it. Behind a dumpster. LAURA: Nope! TALIESIN. No. MATT: You guys at this point have been brought to
    the docks now, and you’re being pushed toward the direction– You can see the Squalleater there
    waiting, and there a number of figures already on deck. LAURA: Is there ever a moment it looks like
    nobody’s looking at us, or me? MATT: Make a perception check. LAURA: No. Seven. MATT: You don’t know. You don’t see anybody,
    necessarily. You have Bouldergut walking behind you, and other people are being ushered in. LAURA: Can I fall back and talk to Bouldergut? MATT: Sure. LAURA: Bouldergut, what is going on right now? MATT: “I don’t know. I wanted to sleep longer.” LAURA: Me too! Everybody seems so angry at
    everybody else. Look at the ship right now! It looks crazy, all these people walking around. MATT: “I know, I want to just eat breakfast.” LAURA: Me too! While I’m talking to her and
    hopefully when I point at the ship– Does she look where I point? MATT: Make a persuasion check. SAM: Look, it’s a space shuttle. LIAM: Dumb as a brick. LAURA: 22. MATT: Yeah, just follows your eyeline over. LAURA: I reach in the bag and I pull out the
    jewels and I dump them off the side. I want them to fall in the water as we’re walking. MATT: Okay, so all the jewels (bubble noises) into
    the water. Okay. Make a sleight of hand check. LAURA: (singing) I wish I had looked at the
    Dodecahedron this morning. (normal voice) 15? MATT: 15? Okay. You drop them off the side. As far
    as you’re concerned, no one noticed. TRAVIS: Who else was walking with us besides
    Bouldergut? LAURA: Bouldergut was in the back, though. MATT: Bouldergut was in the back, and there were a
    few other– First off, you have Waldok, Zoen are with you guys. Bark you see being brought over
    from another side as well. It looks like he either stayed somewhere else or was somewhere else when
    he was gathered up by the crew and the guard. The guard only– None of them go on the ship, but they
    lead you over to the edge of the dock and watch you all go onto the deck and begin to walk away. SAM: Where’s the book right now? LIAM: It’s in Caleb’s possession isn’t it? SAM: Yeah. MARISHA: Oh my god. MATT: Okay. You guys walk along the plank up onto
    the deck and there you see Avantika, Vera, the rest of the crew, are all there. You can see the
    crew of the Mistake are brought to the edge of the dock, and are held there, waiting. You guys are
    brought up on there. MARISHA: Where’s the Mistake? MATT: You don’t know where the Mistake is docked.
    You didn’t see it when you came in. There are probably 20-plus ships that are all across the
    docks here. As you guys are brought to the edge of the ship– TRAVIS: I am burning so many calories right now. MARISHA: I’m dying. I’ve never felt more in
    trouble. SAM: We’ve got to get this book off the fucking
    boat! MATT: Well, you’re on the deck right now. TRAVIS: That’s the most sure way to get it seen. MATT: The deck of the Squalleater. Avantika sees
    you approach and goes, “Good morning, everyone! “Good morning. Well, I apologize for the problems.
    This should only take a moment to discuss. It “appears we’ve a bit of an incident overnight, and
    I wanted to let everyone know there may have been “some issues rifling through. Over here, Waldok was
    so unfortunately shivved by one of our “compatriots,” and shoots a glare over at Zoen,
    who’s like, “I’m sorry! I’m sorry.” “But it has “come to our attention that there has also been…
    Well, to be perfectly honest, a break-in to my “personal chambers.” MARISHA: (gasp) MATT: “I know. Some of my personal belongings have
    gone missing, and I wanted to ask if anybody has “seen anything throughout the night. I already
    spoke with a few of the crew who were here before. “I have not spoken with you, Waldok. Did you see
    anything?” Waldok goes, “I was sleeping, and “suddenly this piece of shit fell through the
    ceiling, and landed on top of me, and I was “just–” It was the other way around. Waldok got
    stabbed. So Waldok goes, “I was walking, and I “heard some noise inside your chambers. I went to
    inspect it, unlocked the door, went in, and things “seemed fine, but then I fell through the fucking
    floor, onto Zoen, and he was sitting in bed “sleeping, and he just fucking started stabbing
    me!” Zoen’s like, “You woke me up, what am I “supposed to do?! And where the fuck are we?”
    “Anyway, we looked at the floor, and somebody had “broken the floor, probably snuck in somehow.” The
    captain goes, “Thank you for that. Also, it “appears that Bark here had strange delusions and
    fell. Or leapt, apparently, from the crow’s nest. “Did you see anything in particular?” He’s like, “I
    mean, it was crazy! It caught fire, and then I “jumped to get away from it, and there was no
    fire.” She goes, “So it appears that there may “have been some sort of distraction. Well, has
    anybody else seen anything of particular interest “last night? And by the way, Caduceus, I heard that
    you were very helpful in helping our compatriots “with their wounds.” TALIESIN: Yeah, it was no problem. MATT: “I appreciate you being a team player.” TALIESIN: Well, it looked– That leg was pretty
    rough. Hmm. TRAVIS: Is this a frequent occurrence when you’re
    in Darktow? This sort of– MATT: “Oh, certainly not. To be perfectly honest,
    whoever did this does not understand the rules of “the city very well.” TALIESIN: I can– No. I can find creatures. I
    can’t find objects. MATT: “Hmm. Vera?” Vera’s sitting back there and
    nods. You see her fingers trace this weird symbol in the air that leaves a slight trace. Her eyes
    flare for a second and she goes, “But that is “okay. Because I can.” LIAM: I take a bit of phosphorus and squelch it
    through my hand and cast Wall of Fire across the entire length of the boat between them and us. TRAVIS: Oh. MARISHA: Holy shit. MATT: That’s where we’re going to pick up next
    week. (screaming) MARISHA: The gauntlet has been thrown! LAURA: Oh my god! LIAM: I’m sweating. MATT: Next week we pick up in the shipyard of
    Darktow, on the deck– MARISHA: Not next week! MATT: Sorry, in two weeks– (screaming) MATT: Oh my god, in two weeks! Oh, no! Curse you,
    Thanksgiving! On the deck of the Squalleater! LIAM: Like the salt on the rim of a margarita,
    phosphorus through my hand. SAM: It’s worth its weight in salt? MARISHA: Eyy. LAURA Ho-ly dang. I should have kept those
    jewels! SAM: Flawless plan, executed flawlessly. MATT: It was a pretty good plan. There were just a
    couple of loose ends! LIAM: We should have worked out Frumpkin in
    advance. MARISHA and LAURA: Yeah. LIAM: I thought we’d have time in the morning. MATT: There were a few moments to possibly discard
    a couple of key objects. MARISHA: But we got the information we needed! MATT: This is good, but you got the information
    you needed, and this is going to be a hell of a start to the next session! Oh, man! I wasn’t
    expecting it to go this way! MARISHA: Info is golden. MATT: All right, we’ll pick up here in a couple of
    weeks. We’re sad we won’t see you guys next week for Thanksgiving. What do we have going on over
    Thanksgiving? MARISHA: Well the day after Thanksgiving on Friday
    is Honey Heist 3: Tova’s Honeys. MATT: There we go. We’re sad we’ll be missing you
    on Thursday, but on Friday we do have that awesome. MARISHA: On Friday, watch us as bears? Stealing
    honey instead of very invaluable books and jewels? TALIESIN: It can only go better. SAM: (singing) It can only be better. MATT: Oh man. My heart’s pumping. LIAM: The last ten minutes have been like, “Don’t
    cast it. Just wait. Just wait. Just wait. Okay.” MARISHA: It felt like getting called into the
    principal’s office. You’re like, “Fuck.” LAURA: Yeah. And like, a principal that always
    knows when you’re lying. MARISHA and LIAM: Yes. TALIESIN: We have video, man. I didn’t do it. MATT: Well, see you guys in a couple of weeks to
    pick up from this crazy moment. Until then, thank you, we love you very much, and is it Thursday
    yet? Goodnight, guys. TRAVIS: We’re going to war! [music]

    24 HOURS IN OUR SWIMMING POOL | We Are The Davises

    August 21, 2019

    (upbeat music) – I see some remnants of
    something bad happening. – [Connie] Oh yeah. – What’s it? Oh man. (rock and roll music) – Hey guys it’s We’re the Davises’! – Hello!
    – Hey, what’s up everybody? – It is a beautiful weekend, we are celebrating the good weather, having fun inside of this ginormous, what is it? I wanna say unicorn.
    – Floaty! It’s a giant unicorn floaty. It’s meant for like a party
    but party of four, so… (laughter) – It’s a winged unicorn
    floaty, it’s got wings. – Pegasus!
    – Pegasus unicorn. (upbeat electronic music) – Our challenge is to
    spend 24 hours in the pool, so…
    – 24 hours! – With it being such a
    beautiful weekend we thought this should be no big deal, right? – Yeah, no problem. – Let’s do this! – [Connie] We even got the pets
    with us, but they can escape at any point in time, they
    just gotta let us know. Hey Harley! – I just woke up. – [Connie] I know, everybody’s
    just waking up, so we’re just kinda chillin’ in the sun. So we put all kinds of
    cool toys along the edge, we’ve got ice chests over there, we’ve got more stuff up there, we got towels ’cause I
    think at night it might get a little chilly. The place is totally dialed in with fun. – Tyler’s already leaving us. – [Shawn] He’s like I’m going in. – Are you going in the spa?
    – Yup. – So to pass some time I’m gonna give Hershey and Harley some swim lessons ’cause they’re still not
    completely used to water. – [Connie] They look
    like they’re chilling. – They love this thing. They’re okay with being in floaties, it’s just like being in actual
    water that they don’t like. Yay! And they can chill on the deck. Eh, eh, eh, eh. (laughing) (upbeat electronic music) – [Connie] It is our lunch time. – Got me and sandwich. And because we’re in the
    pool it is a little soggy but that’s okay, it’s just pool water. – So we have this cooler built into our wonderful unicorn and these sandwiches came from Whole Foods,
    they are really good. They’re pretzel buns with
    turkey and cheese and bacon, which is what everybody knows
    it Tyler’s favorite food of all time, bacon, gotta love bacon. She gets one too but I
    think she’s starting off with her chips, since this
    is a party you can kinda eat whatever you want, when you want. We’re just gonna relax and have some lunch and then maybe, oh look at Harley. Do you see him back there? – [Shawn] He’s like food, what? – [Connie] He totally
    managed to get over here when he saw food. – Look at that, yum! – [Connie] Yeah it even has spinach in it. So good, pretzel buns are the best. Even Harley agrees, look at him. He’s totally focused on your sandwich. Hi Hershey! – [Shawn] You can do it! Hershey come on. – [Connie] Come on, you can do it. Yay! He’s like hmm, just a little
    bit closer I can get it. – [Shawn] He’s like ready
    to bit Tyler’s food. – He’s gonna get that out of your hand. Okay it’s getting later in the afternoon and everybody’s had lunch,
    the kids are still swimming and playing as you can see and we brought diving sticks. So we’re gonna have a contest
    to see how many diving sticks you guys can get. Kay, I’m gonna throw in 10 sticks and then we’re gonna say ready, set, go and see who gets the most diving sticks. – [Kayla] I vote for Tyler. – I think Kayla. – No. – She can swim faster than me and she always beats me
    before I can find some. – [Connie] On your mark, get set, go. (water splashing) – [Kayla] I don’t see any. Ah I see one. – [Connie] You can’t steal it if Kayla’s already touching it. (water splashing) I think Kayla’s trying to
    grab them with her feet. – [Kayla] I got one. – [Connie] I see some way down here. I think Tyler might have
    won by a landslide actually. – Yeah, I didn’t win. – [Connie] Kayla’s all yeah,
    I got one, I’m a winner. I did it! – Good job team. – [Connie] And the
    unicorn has broken free. I am sailing towards the kids
    getting ready to crush them. So Tyler won by a landslide. – [Kayla] I had a feeling
    that would happen. (upbeat electronic music) – Hi. – [Connie] What’s up? – Dead. – [Connie] Dead? The water is actually warmer
    than outside right now. – It is, I’m like kind of tempted to like, she’s like using it as
    like a blanket right now. (laughing) – [Connie] She’s keeping warm. – I learned how to make water donuts. – [Connie] Water donuts? – Which is like… – [Shawn] That sounds delicious. – No like when you blow and
    it makes like a big circle. – [Shawn] Uh huh, cool. – Nice.
    – Awesome man. – [Connie] Is that warm? Nice, is that where the
    warm water’s coming from? – [Kayla] Yes. – Warm from there, warm from there. – [Connie] Ah, she fits. Kayla’s so small, look at her. She fits right inside of our waterfall. – It’s nice. Oh hi Harley! Hi. – The sun is almost set
    behind the house over there. Just floating back and
    forth in the pool right now. – Wondering if we’re
    ever going to be found. Like I feel like we’re stranded
    in the middle of the ocean. Kayla, why don’t you
    push us over that way. – Yeah, we wanna go see the food. – Yeah I wanna go get some food. – [Connie] It’s working. – It is working. – [Connie] Now she’s just
    gotta move us over that way. – Oh I got it, I got it. – [Kayla] You good? – Yup we’re good, thank you. – [Connie] Oh look it, Hershey’s on to us. He knows there’s something good in here. – No that’s my muffin,
    you can’t have that. – [Connie] Hmm! – Wait what, that was
    supposed to be my breakfast. You’re eating it. – [Connie] I’m eating that whole muffin if you’re gonna eat all my chips. – Oh sorry. – [Connie] ‘Cause that’s
    the only chips I have. Whoopie pies! Yum. – [Shawn] Well where’s dinner? – [Connie] It’s in the other ice chest. So in here we have cookies and brownies. Oh that’s probably dinner. Shawn loves those coconuts. Yummy. – Yummy, try some. – [Connie] So Shawn’s got
    his tater tots and quiche. Yes? – [Shawn] Yummy. – [Connie] I’ve got salad. And the kids I think also have tater tots but they’re just not
    coming over to eat dinner. They’re playing. – I want to play. I’m standing on the bucket. Look at how tall I am. I could never stand here before. Oh no, I lost the bucket. – [Connie] Oh no! And look at the dogs. They’re peeking, they’re
    like me, me, mine, mine? They wanna be where the food is. – We’re making a whirlpool. – It’s so warm in here. – If you remember doing
    whirlpools, comment below. Have you ever done one in a pool or a spa? It’s nighttime! There’s the moon. This is like super warm. Our whole pool feels like a spa right now. – [Shawn] It’s like, yeah,
    it’s like 90 degrees. We’ve had the heater on for like two days. – [Connie] ‘Cause it’s cold
    out now, it’s nighttime. – Right. – [Connie] Actually it’s
    not even that bad, you guys. It’s like 65 out. It’s like freezing for California. – In like Montana, New York, you know, that’s like tropical weather. – [Connie] Actually New
    York gets really hot. – That’s true, in the summertime. – [Connie] Is it working? – Yes. – [Connie] Can you float? Have you stopped to try and float? It’s almost midnight. We’ve gotta like try and wrap it up and go night-night. – I’m being carried by
    the current, I can’t. – [Connie] Do we have all our blankies? – [Shawn] Yup, we’ve got all our blankies. I just dropped them off shore right there. Here’s your blankie. We can share one if you want.
    – Blankies! – [Connie] If you guys are wondering why this is full of water there’s
    like a netting down there. – [Kayla] Yeah so everything
    passes right through it. – [Connie] So if we pulled
    this up out of the water it would just drain right out. Oh my camera’s fogging up. Look at all that steam. Whoa, that’s how hot our pool is. The steam is coming up
    from the pool water. They can go in the house,
    we left the house door open. So they have their bed in there. Night night Ty. – Night. – Good night. – [Connie] Are you going night night? – Yes. – [Shawn] Goodnight baby boo-boos. – Good night. – Tyler’s almost out there. Night night. Night night guys, we’ll
    see you in the morning. – We’ll see you in the morning. – Bye. – Good bye. (water running) – Oh gosh. Hey you guys. It’s morning. Oh, oh my gosh. We need some sunglasses. – Oh man, it’s so bright out. – [Connie] It’s so bright. Kayla. Isn’t that sun waking you up? Ty Ty. He’ll sleep through anything. – [Shawn] I can wake him up. (water splashing) (laughing) Wake up, Tyler. He’s like unfazed by the
    water dripping on his face. – [Connie] Well we can
    have breakfast and then. (laughing) – [Shawn] Water in the face, nope. Breakfast, what? Guard dogs been protecting us all night. – It’s way hotter today than
    it was yesterday I think. Oh maybe that because we’ve
    been in the beating sun and I have a black coat
    on still from last night. – I’m pretty sure it’s warmer right now than it was yesterday. – So we gotta swim over to the side and try to get to our breakfast. It’s back there. Hi Hershey, Harley. – Save me dogs. Okay I got it, thank
    you Hershey and Harley. Oh look it, Hershey’s
    ready to jump on board. – [Kayla] Yay! – [Connie] He’s like oh,
    I want to see you guys. Hello. Hello. They gotta get to momma. – Hershey, Harley, hi bubs. – [Connie] We haven’t seen you, all night. They’re afraid to get in the boat. – Oh no, I see some remnants
    of something bad happening. (alarming music) What’s this? Oh man. Critters. We had some visitors last night. – [Connie] The scoundrels come along and try to rip open our trash. And kinda scattered it everywhere. – [Shawn] Something got into it for sure. Oh well. – [Connie] At least everybody’s safe. – [Shawn] Well at least
    we had Hershey and Harley to protect us. – [Connie] Yeah you probably
    scared them off, huh? – [Kayla] Maybe it was them. – [Connie] It was them? They vandalized the trash. – [Shawn] Who wants a croissant? Cookies and brownies? – [Connie] That’s so not breakfast. That’s what Kayla wants? – [Kayla] I want that. (laughing) – More croissants. – [Connie] Oh my. What are they called, whoopie cushions? – [Shawn] Yeah we got
    some whoopie cushions? – [Connie] Whoppie cushions there? – I want one of these things right here. What are these? They look like they might be good. – [Connie] This is really good. Have I even ever had a croissant? (laughing) It’s been so long I don’t remember. – [Shawn] I’m sure you had a croissant at least once in your life. – Yup, this stuff’s good. The dogs are just looking at us. Luckily you have dog food. Yes. Dog food by the door. You have to go there, Harley. Are you guys gonna go swimming? – After I finish my croissant. – [Connie] I feel like I
    wanna jump in the water. – [Shawn] Who wants a whoopie cushion? – [Tyler] Me. – [Connie] It tastes like a
    Twinkie, just so you know. – [Shawn] Nobody else? – [Kayla] I don’t like Twinkies. – [Shawn] Nobody else wants it? – [Connie] No you can have it. – Thank you. Well now that we’ve had
    the breakfast of champions, what’s next? – Kay, I think this is my chance to finally jump in the water. It is hot, I wanna wake up
    and I need to take a bath. – [Shawn] Yeah you do. (water splashing) – Yay! The water is super warm. Swimming. – [Kayla] He’s chilling. – [Connie] He’s licking his paws. He’s chilling. – I have to hold his butt
    up or he’ll fall though. – [Connie] He’s totally trusting. He’s like da da da. Hello. – Hershey’s jealous. – [Connie] Where is Hershey? – [Tyler] He’s on the boat. – [Connie] Wait your turn. (laughing) (upbeat electronic music) (water splashing) (laughing) (water splashing) – [Shawn] Nice. (upbeat electronic music) (laughing) – It’s too hard. – [Shawn] Maybe I can help. (upbeat electronic music) – I can do this. I did it. – [Connie] Dad will never do it. (laughing) Watch. (laughing) (water splashing) (upbeat electronic music) – Tutorial. – [Shawn] On what? – [Kayla] On how to get in the raft. (water splashing) (upbeat electronic music) (water splashing) – [Connie] Oh good job! – [Shawn] Way to go, Kayla. (upbeat electronic music) – [Connie] Hi. Hello. How are you? Ahh! – He fell in. – [Connie] Did Hershey push him in? – [Kayla] I think so. (laughing) (upbeat electronic music) – Well we did it. – Yay! – We survived 24 hours in the
    pool and it was so much fun. – Oh my, I think we’re gonna
    have to keep going though because it is still really nice out and we’re having so much fun. – We’re gonna call it
    26 hours in the pool? 28 hours in the pool? – Let’s do 48 hours. – 48 hours? Oh my gosh. – I don’t think I brought
    enough food though. (laughing) We’ll just have a barbecue
    and have some fun. This is the perfect day for that. I hope a lot of you guys are
    out enjoying your weekend. It’s been gloomy here for like a month and it’s just finally sunny again so we’re excited about that. – Yay! Probably that means summer’s coming. – Yes, summer! I know and some of you guys
    are already on summer break and we’re still not yet. Ah! What kind of questions can we ask them? – I got one. What color was Kayla’s towel when we went to bed last night? – They can just go back in the video. – Yeah, now you guys are gonna
    have to do some research. – Yup there you go, there you go. – Okay, well anyways, hope
    you guys enjoyed this video. Until next time… – [All Together] Bye! (playful music)

    How Much Money Can You Make Investing in the Stock Market?

    August 21, 2019

    How Much Money Can You Make Investing in the
    Stock Market? By If you are looking to make money in the stock
    market you need to prepare. You need to develop a plan and you need to pay attention. Assuming
    that you learn the ropes and apply yourself how much money can you make investing in the
    stock market? Here are a few examples. A Million Dollars Trading One Stock Our sister site,
    published an article 5 years ago, How to Make a Million Dollars Trading One Stock. How to make a million dollars trading one
    stock! This is a great idea if you can do it. Evaluating how this could be done is a
    good exercise in various methods of trading. How to make a million dollars trading one
    stock could be relatively easy if one had one hundred million to invest and only needed
    to make a little over one percent return on investment with your trade in order to keep
    the million dollars after fees and commissions. For most of us in the real world how to make
    a million dollars trading one stock will have to start with a substantially smaller investment
    pool, stocks with significant room for appreciation, and finding ways to leverage our investment.
    Many learn how to trade penny stocks with this sort of goal in mind.
    For most investors in the real world making a million dollars on a single stock requires
    huge growth for the buy and hold investor or huge and repeated volatile price swings
    for the short term swing trader/investor. A single stock that comes to mind is Microsoft.
    If you had purchased 100 shares of Microsoft at $21 a share when the company went public
    you would have 28,000 shares today worth just under $1,500,000 today. And you would be collecting
    more than $40,000 in dividends every quarter. You can make a huge amount of money by picking
    the next Microsoft. Smart Investing Over Time in Many Stocks Although the founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates,
    is the richest man in the world the third richest is Warren Buffett. Buffet turned a
    textile business into a stock holding company in the 1960’s and turned it into an investing
    powerhouse. If you had purchased B shares in 1996 you would have seen a seven fold increase
    in your investment but if you had purchased A shares for $1,000 in 1964 your investment
    would be worth about $10 million today. Buffet practices buy and hold investing using intrinsic
    stock value as a guide. He has had many more winners than losers and is considered the
    most successful investor in the world. Is There a Short Route to Profits? Peter Lynch, the legendary manager of Magellan
    Fund, tells a story about a delivery man who noticed that one of the companies he delivered
    to was adding on to their plant. He asked why and was told that they had received a
    new set of orders and were hugely expanding their business. The delivery man bought the
    company’s stock for a few dollars a share and was pleased when it went up a thousand
    fold once Wall Street caught on. The Common Thread Buffet has said that he never invests in a
    company unless he understands what they do to make money and how that approach will continue
    to make money into the future. And he never buys at inflated prices. This is basic value
    investing. Whether it is picking the next Microsoft, riding along with a Warren Buffett
    or spotting a clear opportunity and taking advantage you can make money investing in
    the stock market. How much depends on your paying attention, spotting opportunities and
    taking advantage in a timely fashion. For more insights and useful information about

    Hey what’s up guys it’s MJ Clashing here and welcome back to another video and today we’re doing clash of clans and it seems that we’re going to be having a massive update this month in clash of clans and I cannot wait for it. There’s been some leaks for this update and I’ve got a couple of images to show you guys and with that being said let’s get right into the video and let’s not waste any time and uh yeah so we’ve got a couple of image for this update and they’re not confirmed but they are pretty good and the art is amazing so let’s just go ahead and take a look at the first image I’m going to put it on the screen right now and here’s the first image so you can see that it’s a little bit different everything is dark and first thing you see in this image is there is no Sun there is a moon in this village which means that there is going to be night mode in clash of clans it’s all dark and you can see that the troops are holding a torch in their hand so what does that mean? Does that mean that clash of clans is going to have night mode people have been asking for night mode since the beginning of the game so it might come to the game you never know so yeah it’s all dark and stuff and you can see this barbarian right here has a jellyfish on its head so what does that mean that mean that jellyfish is going to come to clash of clans? I don’t know it might be just a sea creature or something like that and the third thing you see in this image is at the bottom right hand side of the image and you can see the hog rider and next to the hog rider is a goblin and what is that goblin standing on it looks it looks like a golem to me it has pink eyes and it looks like a golem to me from clash Royale and what does that mean does that mean that the Golem is going to have another level I don’t know but that’s what it means in my opinion so yeah and last thing you can see in this image right here is the ship now the ship has been leaked a couple of times in clash of clans but it’s never come to the game but you can see the ship here is in the sea and everything the troops are in there and they’re approaching a village so what I’m thinking is the ship is going to come to your village and the troops are going to get in the in the boat or the ship and the ship is going to travel across the sea and go to another village that is going to have night mode in it and it looks like they’re approaching the next village here you can see the rocks and the grass and everything and that’s what it is in my opinion so yeah it’s a Chinese image or whatever it’s a Chinese text right here and I’ve got translated that to English so let’s read that the first few lines here in silver are second village night world of extreme speed that’s what the first two lines are and then this second or the third line here which is in blue says unprecedented huge update that’s what it says and this is the first image so I’ve got three more images for you guys so let’s get the second image on the screen right now and here it is so it looks like hog rider and giant are playing clash of clans chess and there’s everything there’s the Town Hall there’s everything in the game but there is a torch next to this giant’s hand there and it’s all dark so what does that mean again night mode or what and at the top of the screen you can actually see a boat next to the giant’s hand as well you can see that there’s a boat over there so again boat, night mode candles, torches everything’s there and yeah that’s the second image so lets scroll up the third image right now and here it is so looks like barbarian is on a seesaw and at the top left corner if you look closely you can see that there’s a ship in the sea now again ship but there is no moon here there’s the Sun there it’s daytime here and yeah but you can see the ship in the top left hand side corner of the screen and again ships might be coming to clash of clans and this is a Chinese text as well here it says balancing update and yeah that’s what it says that’s the third image right there and I’m going to pull up the last which is the fourth image right now here it is there is the Giants and every Pekka barbarians and hog riders and wall breakers everybody but looks like it is night in this village here you can see the moon at the top left corner of the screen and there you can see the sky there are stars in the sky and everything and It’s night time in the village and everybody seems to be having a party in the village so what does that mean night mode coming to clash of clans again? I dont know and let me you know your opinions in the comment section down below I would love to hear what you guys are what you guys’s opinions are on these leaks of the new updates and apparently this update is going to be coming this month which is exciting and I’m really excited for it I left clash of clans a long time ago like three months ago and this update leaks are are like getting me excited and I’m back into the game again let me know in the comments down below if you play clash of clans and I’m really excited for this new update and if these are trolls or fake images then it it’s like weird but here because this this should took this should take like a long time to make these images they took like a very long time and some skill because look at these images aren’t they like crazy the art is fantastic it’s crazy and if they’re fake then that’s just a big troll right there I don’t think they’re fake so let me know in the comments down below what do you guys think of this update I think it’s going to be real and yeah that’s going to wrap it up for today’s video and get ready you guys a lot of clash of clans updates or actually a lot of clash of clans videos are going to be coming to this channel and yeah that’s going to be it for today’s video hopefully you guys enjoyed it like comment subscribe and all that good stuff and I’ll see you guys next time peace out
