Watch DM Matthew Mercer play Dungeons & Dragons with a group of nerdy ass voice actors in one of the most epic live RPG's on Twitch, Critical Role. Other performers include Same Riegel, Taliesin Jaffe, Marisha Rey, Liam O'Brien, Laura Bailey, Ashley Johnson, and Travis Willingham. The first campaign wrapped up in the fall of 2017 and featured over 100 episodes. The current campaign is nearly 30 episodes strong. The setting is Exandria, a rich fantasy world created by Mercer and expounded upon in both his Tal'dorei and Wildemount campaigns.
Current Classes: Rogue, Cleric, Monk, Wizard, Barbarian, Warlock
Style: Immersive role play is a hallmark of Critical Role. These performers drop into character and never falter. Character death is a real threat to be feared. Mercer is a tough but fair DM who shows his finesse by playing off of player choices at the drop of a hat and changing tacks quickly. Giant Dwarven Forge maps area a hallmark of this stream. With a huge cast, these actors are skilled at giving focus to each other and supporting the gift of a storyline that Mercer weaves around them. You will laugh. You will cry. You will love. Your life will probably be changed. If you're not watching or listening to the podcast, it's time to start.
Critical Role airs 7-11pm PST Thursdays on Twitch.
