Well I started watching Critical Role early last year, I would catch up on it as I did washing up or other chores around the house. I think I must have caught up about the same time as you (end of the Chroma Conclave arc). The problem with the games I'm in is that knowing the rules isn't that much of a help compared to other games as our DM has his own rule sets and rulings. For example, Druids can't use metal weapons and armour normally, in our game if its a magical object or contains the Druidic focus then using a metal object is fine. Mind you it works in a few different ways, my rogue has two archetypes from within the same class because of the rule bending. I might even start DMing myself soon, I'm currently setting up a Shadowrun-esq world that will run on the Open Legend ruleset. We'd like that man, we've moved twice since you were last over here lol. No spare room because that's the nursery and right now I'd be very surprised to receive any overnight guests... unless you like being woken at 5am because the babies are hungry.
