Is Travis Willingham STILL Trolling Us With Chetney in Critical Role Campaign 3 Episode 8?

We finally get to “meet” Chetney in Episode 8, and CHETNEY IS THE MAN, or should I say, gnome.

I loved Travis’ previous character Bertrand Bell for his comedy and leadership, but Chetney takes the crazy old guy trope to whole new levels!

Chetney is a comedy explosion. Right off the bat, he is hostile with just about everyone. He hates Dorian. He’s scared shitless of Laudna. He yells a lot. This was the most I’ve laughed at in an episode of critical role, ever.

As expected, we learn that Chetney, being based on Chutney Chocolatecane from “The Night Before Critmas” — is basically the Campaign 3 version of a Christmas Elf. Chetney is a woodworker, who makes children’s toys, specializing in wooden rocking horses. Go figure.

Just Marisha smelling Sam’s Armpit. No biggie.

Chetney was is in Jrusar to meet up with Gurge Kisgregg a headhunter he just met to help him find another group. Gurge has since gone missing and Chetney is hoping our (still) nameless group to help him out.

I went back and forth all of Episode 8 on whether or not Chetney is just another troll character from Travis Willingham.

Episode 8 also takes some time with Dorian and his brother Cyrus Wyvernwind. Exandria Unlimited veterans will already know this, but Dorian finally reveals his true name to the Campaign 3 group — Bronte Wyvernwind.

Cyrus is in a bit of trouble, having a large bounty on his head. Luckily the Hubatt Corsairs are keeping him safe.

The episode ends on a cliffhanger. On the trail of Gurge, the party makes their way to a factory after hearing rumors about a dire wolf attacking the city (which sounds like a shape-shifting Gurge). They may have run into some corrupt wardens.

There is a lot to break down in this episode, both in the plot, theories, and my impressions. Make sure to watch my Critical Role Campaign 3 Episode 8 video.

Episode 8 is the last episode of Campaign 3 until 2022.

What did you think of Episode 8? Do you think Chetney and Dorian stay around for the long haul?
