  • Question 21:
    • Something Christian asks "What's up? Are you my friend?"
      • Yes, of course!

    • Caz Cazmonte, "How does it feel when you do something and roll and have it work out perfectly?"
      • Bachmann: It feels so good that he lies to make it happen.
  • Question 23:
    • Phil Camfer, "If you could be any book character in real life, who would you be and why? And if you could transfer any book character into Drunkeros, who would you play as and why?"

      • Jaela is an acolyte.
      • Toby is a library dude, probably a sage.
    • "What materials do I need to have the best time?"
      • Really all one needs is the Player's Handbook. Everything else is just fun. The PHB is makes you play Dungeons and Dragons, not just roleplaying.
      • Jaela: A really cool notebook for taking fastidious notes.
      • Jennifer: A Crown Royal Bag for dice.

      • She's with Bucky.
  • Question 26:
    • Cat Lashes, "Any tips to inspire players to want to RP and character development?"
      • Nika: The easiest thing was to make up a list of mannerisms for her character, and ideals, and things they don't like. This would inform how they behave and such.
      • Jennifer: What does the character want?
      • Michael: As a DM, ask the players to come up with "mundane" stuff, like in the character's off hours.
      • Jennifer: Practice makes perfect.
      • Tim: As the DM, get in character yourself, kind of force them to do it. (Make sure it's a safe space where the players can feel comfortable having fun.)
  • Question 27:
    • Graham Lion, "What was your favorite moment of GeeklyCon 2017?"
      • Michael: Kicking Bachmann off the stage.
      • Bachmann: Yeah? Well, leaving the stage!
      • Jennifer: They would do huddles before going out on stage.
      • Michael: When Bachmann looked like he was about to vom due to the bananas, and then Nika took out another bunch of bananas.
  • Question 28:
    • David Friks, "In the fight against Jett, Thrifty was railroading Nika hard to kill Soloni, and then when Jett died, Bachmann complained that there was supposed to be a Jett redemption arc. So what was the story planned before Jaela's revenge overpowered the DM?"
      • This is a bad question, and David should feel bad about it.
  • Question 30:
    • ThriftyNord, "Please come to Finland."
      • No.
  • Questions 31-XXX?:
    • Matthew Morris asks a bunch of questons, which Michael is kind enough to answer.
      • Pumpkin Spice Latte.
      • Tim.
      • Probably Ros.
      • Can't do it.
      • "There are no conspiracies about lizard people or whatever."
      • Something about Coors beer.
      • I don't remember what Thaumaturgy does.
      • Any project with Matthew Morris.
      • Five stars.
      • Sloth. (Bachmann clarifies that this question is "Which is your favorite Goonies character?")

He still skipped the last question, despite no one knowing what the last question was.

Trivia

  • Tim wanted to play Luccan at one time, but it would have been too much responsibility.
  • Jennifer's first DnD character she played was a wizard, one of the hardest classes to play, IMO.
  • Tim doesn't like Brip Brap, because it's hard to figure out his voice.
  • Nika is crazy for Matthew Mercer.
  • One of Nika's favorite moments was when she trapped the demon with her Demon Binder by rolling a Natural 20.
