Ep 1 is just taking me forever.
Personally, I always found this adventure trope frustrating to play (investigate and try to earn a spot in a Thieves Guild), since the groups are never set up to actually work as infiltrators, and right now (like I said, haven't finished Ep 1), it's all really silly about trying to look 'mean' or 'rough.'
Also, Tauriel just coughing and not saying a damned word to the shopkeep to keep up the illusion of the character frustrated the hell out of me.
It, unfortunately, wasn't a moment of fun for me to watch; it just dredged up bad roleplaying sessions where our face/lead didn't have a clue about what to do when put into the face/lead spotlight.
Definitely not giving up on this! I'm curious if the group will just end up slaughtering Lucky when they actually do find him. :D
