It is Monday. go take your turkey out of the freezer and put it in the refrigerator. It needs to sit there overnight to start to thaw before you can put it on the counter tomorrow night. I know at least six people last year on my Tumblr feed who were still trying to thaw out there turkey as of mid day on Thursday.
If, like us, you have not bought a turkey yet that is fine. Just make sure when you do buy it it’s refrigerated and not frozen. Or you will be fucked.
“MAYBE IT’S NOT MY WEEKEND, BUT IT’S GONNA BE MY YEAR” I scream at 12 am with tears streaming down my face and a bottle of champagne in my hand. it has not been my year yet. it’s not even a weekend today is Thursday
I have a few progress pics on my instagram but most got lost before I uploaded them when my SD card died ;_; I made Keyleth & Vax when Mercer was announced as a guest at Akon2016 and it was glorious to meet him and all the Critters after the panel!
Caught up on the Talks Machina info from this week (among other things) and…I’m weirdly conflicted.
On one hand, I totally agree with Matt that Vax’s perspective on the Paladin Oath of Vengeance (ie that it’s more about justice for the victims than revenge against the wicked) is a totally viable playstyle. In fact, I’d argue that it’s the best way to go if you want a traditionally LG or NG paladin build using that oath rather than a more chaotic and/or neutral bent.
But on the other, Vax’s speeches in-game didn’t communicate that perspective well at all. And I question whether it’s a good fit with the other narratives that the party is and has explored on the same subject – Percy during and after the Brairwoods arc, Vex learning to forgive herself and turning it outward to others, Keyleth struggling with emotions she previously viewed as immoral, etc. The fact that Vax’s motivations keep having to be explained in interviews as opposed to in the “text” doesn’t help either.
Basically, if played well the story could be an interesting counterpart to the others. Played poorly, it risks coming across as “When you do it it’s revenge and that’s bad, but when *I* do it it’s justice and that’s good.”
Percy sketch! Just a few hours to go until (hopefully) Vox Machina kicks some dragon ass or (probably) they all end up dead. I mean, what thought process gets you to the conclusion that going inside a dragon is a good idea? That’s where those things would rather have you in the first place. You gotta love these guys.
