02 Into the Greyspine Mine

  • (2:09:03) Laura: Let’s do the one that is surrounded so I get, like what, flanking bonus or something? Matt: For ranged, you would not get a bonus for that. Laura: LAME.

11 The Temple Showdown

  • (0:15:02) Laura: Oh, it’s the Underdark! Matt: Yep, so you *indicates she can roll again* […] Favorite terrain makes a Ranger very happy.

13 Escape from the Underdark

  • (1:00:55) Laura: But [the illithid’s] bent over and I’ve got this birds-eye view on him… Matt: You know what, he is grappling and he’s right in the way, I’ll go ahead and give you advantage on that attack.

15 Skyward

18 Trial of the Take Part 1

  • (2:23:35) Laura: Are we still in the forest? Matt: You are nearing the forest, yes, so yeah, for you it’d be considered forest area.

19 Trial of the Take Part 2

  • (0:16:31) Laura: Does [Grog] (who she is playing as) get advantage, however, because he is speaking giant, and he’s in the cold? Matt: Um … no, because you have an entire band of seemingly advancing and armed individuals that are currently stalking toward what appears to be the home of these individuals.
  • (1:08:56) Laura: Oh, but ok, but this is pertaining to (Sam scoffs), I’m just saying, this is pertaining to dragons. So, I feel like he’s one of my favorite enemies so I should have additional bonuses to, like, dragony insight against him. Favorite enemies! Matt: All right, so you’re perceiving anything dragon-related and things that would be warning of a dragon. Laura: Yeah! Things he would have laid down for us, you know, stuff like that. Matt: Ohhh-kay. Go ahead and roll again with advantage.

28 The Sun Tree

  • (0:21:56) Matt: I need you guys, three, to roll a dexterity saving throw. Taliesin: With advantage? Laura: With advantage because I’m in the mountains? Matt: You (Laura) do have advantage. *points at Taliesin* It only affects attacks.
  • (1:21:19) Laura: Does [Trinket] get advantage because of mountains? Matt: Nope! He gets disadvantage because he’s a big bear, tiny path.
  • (1:33:08) Laura: No, you’re in the mountains. Travis: I am in the mountains. Matt: Which means you have knowledge of mountains. Laura and Travis: Don’t get advantage? Matt: Let me double check, actually, what the specifics of the goliath’s …. no, you just, you don’t take issues with cold climates. You don’t get advantage on anything mountain-wise, that is a Ranger ability.
  • (1:48:25) Matt: Make an active perception check for you, Vex, if you don’t mind. Laura: Not advantage? Mountains? Matt: It’s forest? No, you’re forest now. Laura: Oh, wait! That’s another [favorite terrain]! Matt: You sure that another terrain? Go ahead and roll with advantage.

33 Reunions

  • (p1. 1:55:10) Laura: I slide down on my knees and slide across the room and try to cast Cure Wounds the minute I get to him. Matt: You won’t get close enough to do it, unfortunately. Laura: If I slide down and slide? Matt: Make an acrobatics check. For this circumstance, due to the circumstances with your brother being on the ground, I’ll let this be a little more intense.

34 Race to the Ziggurat

46 Cindergrove Revisited

  • (0:20:52) Laura: Fifteen damage. Oh! And that’s sneak attack, right? Because I’m hidden. Matt: It would be for you, yes.

48 Into the Frostweald

  • (0:18:01) Laura: Are we in, uh, we’re in the woods, right? Matt: No, you’re in the plain. Laura: Kidding, we’re in the grasslands.

49 A Name is Earned

  • (1:14:55) Laura: [Trinket] gets advantage because he’s awesome! Matt: No.

54 In the Belly of the Beast

56 Hope

  • (0:16:52) Laura: Does this have to do with dragons? Is it an investigation about dragons? Matt: No, this is more to do with the gold. Laura: What about ‘cause I’m in a mountain and it’s my favorite terrain? Matt: Your favorite terrain, ironically, is not gold. It is Mountain. Laura: It’s mountain? Matt: However, when you level up as a ranger, if you choose to, your next favorite terrain should be gold.

59 The Feywild

  • (0:20:41) Laura: Oh, and this is forest, right? Matt: Mmmhmm.

61 Denizens of the Feywild

  • (1:24:46) Laura: Wait, wait, I get, I get, I’m in, I’m in… It’s my favored terrain. Matt: It doesn’t help you with every single thing you do. The forest is not going to help you with your persuasion check. 

62 Uninviting Waters

  • (0:56:32) Laura: Are we in any kind of favorite terrain right now? Taliesin: Only for Aquaman is this favorite terrain. Laura: Nothing? Matt: I’m gonna say no. Laura: Rivers aren’t … ok, cool.
  • (2:33:02) Laura: We aren’t in the forest, anymore, this is bog. Matt: Right now, you are. Technically, it’s swamp, yeah. Not considered “forest.” Laura: All right.
