Critical Role is a weekly livestreamed Dungeons & Dragons game set in Exandria, which is the world created by veteran voice actor and Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer. Each week, Matthew leads his friends (also fellow voice actors!) on epic adventures.
The first campaign centered on the ragtag group of heroes known as Vox Machina — Pike Trickfoot, the Gnome Cleric (Ashley Johnson), Keyleth, the Half-Elf Druid (Marisha Ray), Percival “Percy” Fredrickstein Von Musel Klossowski de Rolo III, the Human Gunslinger (Taliesin Jaffe), Grog Strongjaw, the Goliath Barbarian (Travis Willingham), Scanlan Shorthalt, the Gnome Bard and Taryon “Tary” Darrington, the Human Artificer (Sam Riegel), Vex’ahlia, the Half-Elf Ranger (Laura Bailey), and Vax’ildan, the Half-Elf Rogue (Liam O’Brien). The first campaign ended in November 2017 after 115 episodes and 373 hours of gameplay (via Crit Role Stats)
