Last week’s episode of Critical Role finished with Orym and Fearne dead after an intense showdown with Otohan Thull, an accomplished hired soldier and the head of Paragon’s Call. Thull had ties to the vast conspiracy that Ringer’s Hells were investigating, and was especially interested in Imogen, whose powers were attached to the spooky moon Ruidus. While trying to set off Imogen’s inactive powers, Thull tore through the party and went after Laudna, bringing her one bombed demise save away from death. Imogen’s powers set off toward the finish of the episode, making a blast of energy that seemingly evened out a piece of Bassurus, the city where the showdown occurred.
After the surviving members of Chime’s Hells were momentarily caught within their own memories, the episode opened with the party standing in a pit made by Imogen’s powers. Otohan was no place to be seen, however Orym and Fearne were still dead and Laudna was still critically injured. Because of the time restraints expected to successfully resurrect party members, the party was still in Battle Drive with Laudna up first. Tragically, Marisha Beam bombed Laudna’s passing saving toss at the highest point of the round by moving a Characteristic 1. That increased the quantity of dead party members to three and made it sure that no less than one person wasn’t leaving Bassurus alive.
Fortunately, the robot FCG was still standing and had a single Level 3 spell slot left to cast Revitalize. After some concise discussion as to whom his personality should resurrect, FCG’s player Sam Riegel chose to Revitalize Fearne and scarcely succeeded on the Wisdom check expected to resurrect her. With Fearne back on her supposed feet (Fearne is a satyr and has hooves), the party had a decision to make – Fearne been able to cast one more Revitalize spell, however they needed to choose Orym and Laudna. The decision boiled down to a coin flip and Orym was selected as the beneficiary of the last resurrection spell. Fearne easily made the Wisdom check expected to resurrect Orym, and Chime’s Hells was left with just a single dead party part.
While Marisha Beam needed to pass on the table because of the demise of her personality, apparently the rest of the party is focused on bringing Laudna back. The party is planning to get back to Jrusar, where their supporter Master Eshteross has promised to assist with social affair resources for an endeavored resurrection. Nonetheless, there could be unexpected complications – Laudna is an Empty One and doesn’t in fact have a soul. This could add an extra kink to any endeavored resurrection, especially since Laudna was serving as a vessel of sorts of Mission 1 baddie Delilah Briarwood.
