Please note — there are SPOILERS for Campaign 3 Episode 5 in the video and this post.
Critical Role Campaign 3 Episode 5 was a great episode of Dungeons and Dragons. The characters deal with Yash of the Corsairs, Dugger the Dwarf, and get revenge for the death of Sir Bertrand Bell.
The group is really showing off their chaotic nature, but they may be a bit too chaotic. NPCs get frustrated to speak with them, and sooner or later Matt Mercer is going to have to punish them, to put them in their place.
I have been loving Critical Role Campaign 3 for Matt Mercer’s story, world and city of Jrusar, but there can be a case made that the show is going a little bit slow. We have a very long battle this episode, over an hour and a half, and a lot and back and forth for very little progression of the story. I do expect this for the first few episodes of a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign, as Campaign 2 also started off a bit slow. I just hope we start to get into the groove of things sooner than later.
The group also very much lacks a leader since the death of Bertrand Bell. Imogen and Ashton step up here and there, but no one is taking the reigns (I’m looking at you Orym). I hope Travis’ character shows up soon and takes the leadership responsibility, as this group is starting to remind me of the Crown Keepers from Exandria Unlimited; way too chaotic for their own good.
