Analysis Ep95 to Ep99 Vex and Percy are hiding something

I very much caution against putting the cart before the horse. Speculation can be fun, but remember that it’s very prone to error, so don’t get your hopes up. I also advise Ockham’s Razor: the simplest explanation is usually right. And the least dramatic possibility is usually right. That said, it’s very obvious that Vex … Continue reading Analysis Ep95 to Ep99 Vex and Percy are hiding something

Transcript Ep96 0:22:16 Grog’s Whitestone Tour Hat

I collect vintage and ostentatious hats, elaborate headpieces, and fascinators. I’m the sort of person who can (and frequently does) put absolutely ridiculous things on her head and manages to make it look good. So, my first two thoughts after this scene were: “I want that hat,” and “I think I can make that hat.” … Continue reading Transcript Ep96 0:22:16 Grog’s Whitestone Tour Hat

Transcript Ep5 0:1:50 Character Backstories

All of this transcription was done by Critical Role Transcripts. I’ve merely reformatted it from closed captions to paragraphs, and added the timestamps and links. The longer Critical Role has run, and characters have developed, the clearer it is that the telling of their backstories shows some very core personality traits, beyond the mere history … Continue reading Transcript Ep5 0:1:50 Character Backstories

Scene Cut Ep79 3:14:42 Thordak flies into the hole, Vax makes a choice

Analysis: My main reason for this (masochistically long) scene cut is to look at why Vax attacked Raishan. I’ve included a handful of other scenes that also show how Vox Machina felt about Raishan. They show that no one trusts Raishan. They were all keenly aware, from the beginning, that the moment Thordak died they … Continue reading Scene Cut Ep79 3:14:42 Thordak flies into the hole, Vax makes a choice

Transcript Ep79 Short Quote Collection

WIP This transcript has not been edited for accuracy yet. But it’s my Winter’s Crest gift to you. Short quotes may be added after Thordak flies off, but mostly that’s a long transcript. If you like this transcript, please consider donating to Critical Role Transcripts, @CRTranscript, to help them provide closed captioning to Critical Role. … Continue reading Transcript Ep79 Short Quote Collection

Transcript Ep45 0:32:46 Percy tells Vax what happened in the Sunken Tomb

Analysis: This is probably the best example of non-verbal exchange in Critical Role to date. Most of the scene’s development doesn’t actually take place with words. Vax and Percy are both very expressive people. Their talk the night before, camped outside the Sunken Temple (Ep44 1:15:21), was warm, earnest, and forgiving. It was full of … Continue reading Transcript Ep45 0:32:46 Percy tells Vax what happened in the Sunken Tomb
