Liveplay podcasts are one of the key reasons tabletop games have broken into mainstream culture, and the biggest of these is Critical Role — in fact it might be a little TOO big. The archive of episodes stretches back to 2015 and numbers in the thousands, and you can’t just pick up any episode and join in because they’re all connected. It would benefit Critical Role greatly if the immense storylines they’ve cooked up could be condensed in the form of a TV show…ah wait, it already happened.
Legend Of Vox Machina
It’s almost time: the Legend Of Vox Machina is about to begin. It’s the epic animated series adaption of Critical Role’s first campaign, which was promised to us years ago through one of the most lucrative Kickstarter campaigns ever. It stars and involves everyone who participated in the show: Laura Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Liam O’Brien, Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Sam Riegel and Travis Willingham. All of them have professional jobs in the voice acting field when they’re not campaigning.
