Critical Role span off from Geek & Sundry so they had the flexibility to do new things. Today we discover that one of those things is a show called Handbook Helper, no, sorry, it’s called Handbooker Helper, that teaches people the basics of D&D in short videos.
The episodes will feature Critical Role stars like Matthew Mercer, Liam O’Brien, Marisha Ray and Laura Bailey. Mercer’s introduction simply says ‘roleplayers’ so I expect many guest appearances. The goal is to make D&D more accessible which, in turn, might boost stream audience numbers and book sales.
When is Handbooker Helper on?
The show will run on Critical Role’s YouTube on Wednesday at 10am. The first Handbooker Helper is scheduled for Wednesday, August the 29th.
Meanwhile, new episodes of Critical Role are still on Thursday at 10 pm ET on Geek & Sundry’s Twitch.
