Matt mercer reddit
I’d like to start by saying that I’ve done everything I can to get into Critical Role and join the fancy voice-acted hype train. You guys seem to be having a lot of fun doing it, but I’m not sure it’s for me. So, Wizards, could you please stop showing me Matt Mercer content? I’m not interested in playing as a Bloodhunter. Dumanancy is not welcome at my table. They’re unbalanced and ridiculous, and they don’t feel like the Dungeons & Dragons I’d like to experience. Is it just me, or does anyone else have this feeling?

I’m doing a campaign for a lot of newbies, and I’m struggling with a lot of newbie issues (the one who never speaks up, the one who needs to be railroaded, the NG character being played CN and the CN character being played CE). However, I’ve recently been struggling with a new situation. Critical Role sparked the interest of a third of my party in D&D. I like Matt Mercer just as much as the next man, but these guys must have watched the show for over 30 hours before picking up a D20. The Dwarf believes that all Dwarves have Irish accents, and the Dragonborn sounds just like the one on the show (which is good until they encounter NPCs who aren’t played the same way). Half of the party has contacted me and inquired about my plans for resurrection. They told me how Matt does it when I told them I’d decide when we got there. Our WhatsApp is flooded with Geek and Sundry videos on how to develop our RPG skills. The way they do it on the show is fine, but I’m not Matt Mercer, and they’re not Vox Machina. The unreasonable expectations would eventually collide with reality. How do you deal with players who have sworn by previous DMs? TL;DR version Critical Role has become a model for how my players perceive D&D. How do I promote my own way of doing things without disappointing them? 98 percent of 652 commentssharesavehidereport Voted up This discussion has been closed.

The story of jeff: my experience with the mercer-effect – rpg
So, with me as DM and another seasoned player to assist, the campaign began with a simple pirate arc to introduce two new players to D&D. On the side, one of the players (S) agreed to watch critical position to learn more. Now, I’ve been careful and asked the players not to equate my game to someone else’s, and to remember that each game is special. S, on the other hand, would make comparisons or say things like, “This is how MM would do it.” I asked them to stop saying things like that because they were hurtful to myself and the other player who was still learning. S started to complain that they were not given any participation or tasks to complete, despite the fact that the other two players in the game and I had asked for their feedback on many occasions. S, on the other hand, refused to take either of the hooks and would rather remain in silence. They eventually dropped out of the movement without consulting anyone or informing the others. TLDR: Player wanted a Matt Mercer-style game, protested when they didn’t get any participation despite opting out of interacting with the environment, and then abandoned the campaign.

Matt mercer & critical role effect in dungeons and dragons
For the uninitiated: Some DMs have expressed dissatisfaction with the “Matt Mercer effect” at their table. In other words, their players expect the DM to be exactly like Matt, and are disappointed when they aren’t. That’s not an issue for me because no one at my table watches Critical Role or other D&D shows. However, I’ve spent a decent portion of my quarantine period watching CR for the first time. I’ve been binge-watching Campaign 2 and am thoroughly enjoying it! My game has benefited from it in two ways: Of course, I realize it’s unreasonable to ask my players to perform at the level of experienced voice actors, but I can’t help but wish they’d put in a little more effort… Because of how much time and effort I put into it, and, admittedly, because of what the CR cast has accomplished. I’m not sure whether I came here for guidance or simply to write down a self-aware line of thought. Maybe I just want to know if I’m the only one who has had this experience. I’m not sure.
