The less you start expecting, the more you will start enjoying with this show.

Yes, but the first season was amazing, and the quality seems to have gradually dropped since then. Maybe if you returned to the 15 minute episodes every other week or something...

If you took episode 34 and 35 and watched them together you would get a mix of story and humour. 4 to 5 minutes every week is not always enough to advance the story and people expect that every week something should happened that explains this and that.

The people crying about quality would cry no matter what anyway. When the show came out it was something new, that flare and excitement is gone for them and thats why they think the quality is down. The number one way to prove that? All of these people have different reasons for what went wrong.

Again, the last you start expecting, the more you will enjoy.

I fucking hate you Rob. 2 cliffhangers? Now next week you'll probably do an episode that is completely unrelated like the opening to the second season of South Park. Seriously, that is just a dick move. A hilarious dick move but a dick move nonetheless. Damn you, making these episodes so short and then having cliffhangers at the end all the time! Oh well, this episode still kicked ass and chewed bubblegum and it was all out of ass.

PS. $5 says Douglas is not dead
(Also, I totally thought the video was broken when it cut to black)

This show is weird. Not "Sealab 2021" weird, but the plot seems like it has Attention Deficit Disorder.

So...was that the 3rd sin of the unforgotten or what?

Gigastrike is right, if mike cheated doesn't that mean another Sin of the Unforgotten is activated. Or will Mike not give himself one because he's a jerk?

Brilliant. Pure gold. Pwnership. Whatever.

Great episode, i love this show! =D
'You know damn well that Disney shit isn't going to help me here!'
'See this spell Mike? I'm going to use it to kick ass!'
Cliffhangers,are genius =D, actually most of the cliffhangers i hate, but this one is just perfect xd, so funny!
Great show, nice....

lawl 2 cliffhangers ahahahaaa!!!

one of the best episodes
when the first cliffhanger came i... omg no words to discribe

Nooo DX

Double cliffhangers =/ tis just cruel :) but the episode was still as awesome as ever =]

I'm gonna shoot him so bad for those cliffhangers >:(

Aha, awesome cliffhangers. I hate them, but it was so damn funny this time.

CLIFFHANGER!? TWO OF THEM!? DAMN YOU!

After reading several posts from people I have to raise a concern: The whiners are affecting the series in a negative way. In the little time there is for every episode per week sometimes it is spent (wasted if you will) getting back at these people somehow instead of keeping with the entertainment; As a consequence those who do not read the forum tend to be confused at this and forget about Unforgotten Realms.

Robert, while I appreciate you paying attention to these ingrates's feedback don't let them get to you so much as it'll damage the series. After all this is what happened to FFVII after Zippy Nomura saw what a cashcow the game was and spawned all these dairies.

I agree. Rob your show is awesome, I watch it now and I will probably always continue to watch it nomatter what direction it takes, but I can see it in the newer episodes that your really pissed off, you don't seem happy to be making unforgotten realms episodes anymore, it seems more like you quickly put them together so that people will stop whining. I know pumping them out once a week is tough & stressfull, and dealing with all the people acting so judgemental over a free show would get on my nerves too. When I first watched your show, everything was so silly and thought out, you seemed to have fun making episodes and making us laugh, it was great. I dunno if you got a contract or anything with escapist, but id rather see once a month episodes that you enjoy making at your own pace when YOU feel like it then see you stressed out and arguing with stupid people inside of your show. I hope things get better, don't waste a great show and alot of talent because of some retards, just have fun & enjoy what you do :) ~ Bobothehunter

I like Unforgotten Realms quite abit, but each episode seems to be shorter and shorter still. This episode was OK, not my favorite cause it really didn't DO anything. Just a tiny fight scene. Season was better due to longer episode times. This is way you have gaps between seasons to start on the next set without skimping. A minute of intro, and a minute of exit stuff only leaves roughly four minutes for the show to continue, and with two seperate parties it leaves very little room to get on with the story.

Otherwise, real good series.

P.S. The first paragraph was an OPINION, if someone qoutes me and berates me for it...I'll do something...EVIL.

maybe before mike can cast the spell he faints like sir schmoopy

gigastrike:

...I said that first. Remember...

Athen:
Wait, if Mike is cheating, I think he should get one of those "Sins of the Unforgotten" slash things.

petey hunter:
Ahh jeez how is douglas ganna live through that, unlessif the mini kobold missed Flintlocks are highly innacurate,

You know I was watching this thing on the history channel about this guy named Andrew Jackson,and this guy tries to assasinate him and pulls out his pistol and it misfired and he pulls out another and it misfired. That would be hilarious if that happens to douglas except four times.

i love the laugh at the first cliff hanger.

darn, this is the last one im gonna be able to see for like, 7 weeks. And now I get to spent that time wondering... But it was still funny

Of course Douglas is not dead..

they are in the past..

Douglas IS Timmy The Evil.. how do people not know this yet?

and he is going to become evil because of something Sir Schmoopy does to him in the past.

well thats my theory.

Hilarious episode, but it's really annoying waiting a week to watch a 4 minute episode. If you subtract opening song and end credits thats all we are left with. This wouldn't be so bad but they used to me more than ten without the opening and end credits. Granted they came out every two weeks but at least it was a show and not a clip. To be honest I don't expect you to even get to both Cliffhangers net week in four minutes + time for comedy. I love the show since its inception but well I felt that I needed to say this.
I lso miss " The following episode ....bit. That was a hilarious and quick way to get into the show.
Long live Roamin the rank 11 crime solving Paladin!

before he had a script for the first seiries now he has to write one

To the people raising the question about the Sins of the Unforgotten:

I don't think switching dice is really enough to warrant one of those. Beforehand, Rob was doing things that blatantly violated the rules of chance and reason in the game (blowing on his die, moving a character to a place that he could not get to). People switch dice in real games all the time and the GM never calls foul on that. Something that would earn a Sin of the Unforgotten is if Mike said, "Oh look, I just remembered that I have (name of spell that Mike made up off the top of his head) that makes all my nat 1's nat 20's." THAT would be cheating. Simply switching dice is not.

Damn you cliffhangers!

Okay, but if you intentionally give a dice you know is rigged to your opponent than you are blantantly violating the rules of chance and thus you are cheating.

Ah! bloody cliffhangers!

First time commenting on an UR thread but anyway...
It's an utterly brilliant thing Unforgotten Realms, infact it's acctuallygot me back into D&D despite all the pain that game caused me. I enjoyed the first series, the second series and I'm enjoying thins series. But there is one thing that bugs me and you've probably heard this quite alot but I'm getting sick of the really really short episodes. I mean there good episodes, good content and I know that most of the stuff on the internet (good or nay) is about 2 - 5 mins anyway. But UR was at it's best (I feel) when you got a massive lump of it each week so it was something I sat down to do, watch Unforgotten Realms and then dersperatly wait a week to get the next installment.

When the second series was introduced (or whenever it got shorter) and it was changed from 15ish mins to 7-10 I was a little disapointed but only a little, it was still enough to look forward too, still enough to make me designate a specific time as to "when i was going to watch UR". But lately it's been far to short and this week it was what 5 1/2 ish mins (i cant remember) or something along those lines, and it still had a cliffhanger (sorry... 2 CLIFFHANGERS!!! *gasp*) I was pretty pissed off that I waited a week for that. Also with the constant beating around the bush in this series it just gets dull, it was interesting the first few times you did it, you know the whole stalling episode thing but you do it way to often and I'm not sure if I can be arsed anymore if that keeps happening.

It's been a brilliant creation Rob but seriously, what happened? why the shorter episodes? why are you trying to irritate the people who watch your show? (yes cliffhangers, suspence and shizz is used in alot of media but I thing UR has passed a boundary or something where it's not exiting it's just annoying (in a bad way)).

Mabye you explained all this at some point in another thread, but I never read it and I can't see any reason for doing so.

Yo, this is ISearchForTraps, some of you might know me from the UR forum.

I've been a fan of the series since the early days on Newgrounds, and I've always been a supporter and fan. Rob has his own way of doing things, and I think the complainers should appreciate he does the show at all - complaining just makes things worse and if this episode is any sign - Rob could well kill the series if they don't stop. I don't want that to happen to my fave web series, so I ask all the real fans to lay off and let Rob do things his way, positive feedback is good, but flaming and trolling won't make things any better.

Just enjoy the show, use intelligent answers, and let Rob develop it at his pace and liking - he may ignore the complaints, but their volume may have a bigger effect on his love for the show he's put so much effort into over the years.

I made this account when I saw the state the show could fall into, but now that's all out of the way, I just wanna say this ep was short, but sweet, it made me laugh, especially the references to the loaded Bulbasaur dice, and Gary calling Elamous 'Wigglytuff' (I'm actually surprised by that reference, such an ignored Pokemon), which I fould hilarious. =D

Seriously Rob, keep up the funny work, and don't let the complaints get you down or bitter - keep going for the real fans, and for yourself.

I solely joined these forums because of UF, and these episodes still gives me a great laugh.

I can't help but feel though after watching this epidsode that you Rob are getting somewhat tired of doing it? Everything gets more and more contradictive, and 2 cliffhangers? ;D

I don't know, perhaps I'm way out fishing here :P

I agree with previous posters here though saying that negative posts with only flaming and such which has been posted in this thread is utterly pointless. I just ignore them and hope you do as well Rob.

I know this kind of project would demand a lot of your time and it's amazing how you manage to get these new episodes out every week. :) And I and all your fans appriciate it a lot. Keep on going :D

lol, cliffhangers. And to people who are afraid he might stop the series, it's his source of income now, so he'd need to find another job. Yes, escapist pays him to make UR.

And besides some of it is CONSTRUCTIVE critisism... this being a good thing to all those fanboys out there who will all jump at my throat if I don't say everything is apsolutaly wonderfully spectacular and should replace God (or something). Wether he chooses to accknowledge the oppinions of the people who watch his show is upto him off course but can he really expect any less when his show is on a site that's main purpose is too critisize and review such things?

Shit happens, people send hate mail (which he was asking for at some point in the series anyway) some people like it, some don't, some think he could do it better, some think it's fantastic the way it is... it's the way the world works and you can't get worked up about these things because it was your choice (not specifically directed at Rob) to put your talents to the public view so you do have to take the bad with the good.

Just for the record I like the serious, I think it's fantastic but I do have a few issues with it at the moment (they are listed in my previous reply a few comments up the way) and I if none of Rob's fans ever told him that they think there might be something up with it and perhaps he could make the odd adjustment here and there then he would never know would he and thus carry on regardless.

Critisism is good but only when relivant, accurate and not just a rant about how much you hate something. It should be about WHY you hate something or WHY you like it. Off course just people coming on and saying "that was awsome" etc. is nice and a good ego boost, makes you feel good and that your doing a good job etc. and of course you cant stop people randomly posting abuse for no reason they should ust go away and not watch whatever it is again. But you can hardly blame people for voicing their oppinions (if relivant) in a bloody forum on a critic and review website.

So great.

OOP CLIFHANGER look at your face right now, your probably so pissed off lol.

PS UNICORN POWER!!!!!!

First of all, the term "rules of chance" is fairly contradictory because chance, being almost completely random, cannot have any set rules or else it would be pointless to call it chance to begin with. Second, didn't you hear Mike? He knows nothing lol.

Lol, That was great, although cliffhangers suck, haha
