Critical Role's Matthew Mercer shares a passionate and empathic post about Explorer's Guide to Wildemount only an hour after it is announced.
Critical Role is a weekly live show in which voice actors play the roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons. Led by Matthew Mercer, as the Dungeon Master, and featuring Travis Willingham, Marisha Ray, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Liam O'Brien, Laura Bailey and Sam Riegel the show airs first on Twitch before being uploaded to YouTube later.
Since 2018, Critical Role is the name of the studio co-owned by the cast and which has produced other shows and roleplaying supplements.
