Critical Role, one of the most iconic Dungeons & Dragons live-play games streamed on YouTube, brings together professional voice actors to play the famed tabletop roleplaying game, with two finished campaigns, and a third underway.

Its second campaign is set in Wildemount, a continent in conflict between the dictatorial Dwendalian Empire and the mysterious Kryn Dynasty, and its characters soon find themselves at the heart of a political conspiracy, starring Laura Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Liam O’Brien, Marisha Ray, Sam Riegel, Travis Willingham and Dungeon Master Matthew Mercer.

The Mighty Nein animated series will premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
