OMG! Guys! The people behind Critical Role are planning on making an animated special, called "The Legend of Vox Machina"! This is awesome news, even if you're not particularly a fan of Critical Role itself. I say this, being a huge fan of the show & of the people behind these wonderful characters, because they are once again showing just how much potential in the ability to tell great custom fantasy stories using vehicles like Dungeons & Dragons. Ultimately, their success can help spread to other online games, and could help spearhead a full-fledged animated series of Dungeons & Dragons!
But back to the news: The folks behind Critical Role are partnering with some really awesome talent in the industry, and their teaser that they've done announcing this project just blows me away. There's a lot of information on the official site, and I suggest that you go and read it over there. Suffice to say, they are running a Kickstarter Campaign to get this funded (because Hollywood didn't want to risk their money), and while their goal was only $750,000, at the time of writing this, they're now at... $2,850,000! That is just... I mean... wow! That there just shows how many people are wanting to see this become a reality!
Here's the announcement video. Watch... drool... and well, get hyped!
