Synopsis Edit

Pre-Show Edit

Announcements Edit

Previously on Critical Role Edit

Last we left off: The Mighty Nein, after making a daring escape from the Temple of the False Serpent on the island of Urukaxl had managed to nearly drown in the escape, make their way through the jungle being chased by both yuan-ti and the lizardmen denizens of this island. Making their way to the shore just in time to have the actual pirate ship, the Squall-Eater, there to defend you. Firing various heavy cannon balls towards the creatures which had given chase and allowing you to escape on the boats to safety. Upon reaching the top of the ship you found that the Mistake has been repaired enough to be seaworthy, though it does need some more intense repairs.

Your supplies are relatively low, and it looks like the current is goal to find your journey westward to the island of Darktow which has been wiped-- from your knowledge-- wiped from the Clovis Concord's control many years ago and currently resides as the center of all piracy in the Lucidian Ocean.

As you all went to rest for the evening, Fjord [...] had an evening's conversation with Captain Avantika, in which it was discussed his past history with his childhood father figure, who also seemed to have a history with Avantika as well and is somehow rolled in with this strange Uk'otoa phenomenon. It also came to light that this shipwreck which gave Fjord his powers might have a connection, based on the Captain's intuition, with where this third and final sphere may lie, and it was decided between the two of them that this may be the next goal, beyond Darktow, to pursue. After which, they fucked.

Campaign 2 Tracker Map, Episode 41

Caleb offers to give Caduceus the Periapt of Wound Closure that had formerly belonged to Mollymauk Tealeaf, stating that because he is always far back in combat anyway, it would do Caduceus much more good in the event that he goes down. Caduceus asks Caleb if he believes in fate. He goes on to express that he believes Caleb is being shaped by the world into "something important," and that he wants to ensure that he helps Caleb get to that point.
