Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Dive deep into the history of the world's most popular fantasy RPG livestream with the cast of Critical Role in this definitive guide.

From its unassuming beginnings as a casual home game between friends to the role-playing phenomenon it is today, Critical Role has become the stuff of legend. This audiobook chronicles how a circle of friends who all happen to be talented voice actors built the most-watched tabletop role-playing livestream of all time.

Discover richly written insights into the locations, characters and adventures featured in the hundreds of episodes across Critical Role's two campaigns, Vox Machina and the Mighty Nein. Go behind the scenes with exclusive interviews with Dungeon Master Matt Mercer and the entire Critical Role cast as they explore their characters' most triumphant moments and darkest hours. And celebrate the massive community of Critters who support and expand the show's world through a highlighted tour of the crafts, cosplay and art they create every day.

Featuring a foreword from Felicia Day and the inside story you won't find anywhere else, this audiobook is your indispensable guide to Critical Role.

The adventure begins!

Critical Role: Required reading!

Awesome and really in depth. I’ve been a critter since campaign one and I learned A LOT from this audiobook. Really enjoyable and relentlessly positive, this gives a thorough grounding in all things CR related. Is it Thursday yet? : D

Fantastic!

An in-depth look into the background of critical role and all people involved in the show! Hearing how the cast grew up was incredibly humbling and was holding back happy tears throughout. A must listen for Critters!

Lots of new trivia to learn and a great listen!

Mary Elizabeth did a wonderful job reading this. a couple of strange pronunciations sometimes (I swear thats not how you say Cadeusus), and a couple of errors (Percy and Vax got married?) but all in all her performance was 100% all the way through.

The book itself was full of wonderful information about both campaigns and even a long time fan like me learned so much. It was a wonderful companion for the long car journeys I had to make recently. Deffo recommended.

The Adventure Begins

Absolutely loved it!!!
Made me love even more the world that started with a nerd group of voice actors rolling dice and telling stories.

CR in the raw

Have been a long time fan of their work and this doesn't disappoint. Once you get past some of the miss said names (let's be honest we have all been there with D&D names) it is a good in-depth look at CR as a whole. Though I think a little extra magic could have been added if the cast had read some of it but that is just me not getting enough of these nerds.
