Four Fabulous Friends on a Quest (Shaarp Edges Episode 0)
When Crit Happens welcomes Jessiye Davis, our first Guest Game Master, who is running an adventure through the Shaar for us!  During Episode 0, we learn about the setting of the Shaar, which is part of the Forgotten Realms, and meet the characters we’ll be playing. We also talk through various safety tools, employing a brilliant and thorough document that you can access here (full link below), and Jessiye asks some insightful questions to help her prep for gameplay! We want to give a special shout out to Jessiye’s brother, Nathan-Paul Davis, for composing original music specifically for this campaign arc! Find his links below. Also, this campaign will have a special treat for Patreon members–video of our gameplay!

Dragonsbane and Dragonfly (Episode 28)
The Ride or Dies are dead tired, and lay down to get some sleep–all except one, that is. After a much needed night of rest, whether sleeping or not, everyone is grateful that Thulla can get them proper breakfast over which to talk through their next moves. Thulla introduces them to a new friend, and passes on a gift from Mortha. Then the party sets out in pursuit of root from the thornberry bush. In the process, Titan finds they are finally able to let their guard down, Jasoo finds trust in a new friend, and Jo finds love in an unexpected place. But when the party gets to the top of the ridge, all their careful preparations can't stop their shock at what lies beyond.  Then, on Dirty Crit, analysis of relationships between our in-game characters and their growth. We discuss real world frameworks for healthy relationships, and how they collide with our fantasy story. Some really interesting stuff.  And there’s plenty more for our members, so join today: Patreon.com/WhenCritHappens   Content Warnings: forest fires, mushrooms, 4.0 GPAs, swearing, threats to children, death of animals, heights, gore, body horror, death, misgendering, alcohol.
