Critical Role's The Legend of Vox Machina reunites your favorite D&D heroes for a professional-quality animated special!
They just launched their Kickstarter for an animated series and they've already almost amassed $3.5 million in the first 24 hrs. I've been a fan since the beginning and have thrown $200 into the hat. They've provided me over 1000 hours of entertainment, so that two hundred dollars has provided me more return on investment than probably any video game I've ever bought.
If you don't know what Critical Role is, it's a weekly show on twitch that follows the Dungeons and Dragons campaigns of a group of voice actors. The episodes are 4+ hours a piece and the first campaign was over 100 episodes. It picks up many sessions after the start of their first campaign, which they played off camera in their free time. They're currently 50 episodes into their 2nd campaign. When I started early AM backroom at Target, I'd almost always have the show playing in one ear. If you've ever had any interest in DnD then it's definitely worth giving it a listen.
