    Lost a lot of respect for Critical Role now. They actually took a paycheck to advertise Diablo. So that's a three-step sin; taking money from Activision, taking money for supporting Diablo (the support of which will 'justify' Diablo Immortal to shareholders) and supporting Blizzard who have actively been disrespecting their own franchises, laying off workers and cutting their own creative heart out to replace it with Hasikoztis and the like.....

    The pots with gold make sense. I always assumed they are burial urns. Gold to pay the death tax or the ferryman or whatever. It is the barrels which have gold inside that are weird. Unless they belong to smugglers.

    I really liked this one shot a lot and I wish it was longer but the difference was awesome in addition to the Mighty Nien and Vox Machina shows. This as a bit darker and it was enjoyable and I can’t wait to watch it again. I really love Matt’s voice alteration the echo was bad ass. The cast was good the I love Mica and Carlos plus how the different characters that were played as darker characters

Gave me a whole human in fair trade" and the other imps being like "but..." and him going "are they here to kill you specifically? then leave'em alone." Shame it's a one-shot.

      There was, apparently, some Diablo II supplement for D&D a couple decades back. I only recently heard of them. They could be helpful with my own campaign idea of making an inter-universal breach between Faerun and the Burning Hells that the PCs must attempt to close by any means necessary.
