“The critical role team is made up of well-known voice actors including Laura Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Travis Willingham, Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Liam O’Brien and Sam Riegel. The first two episodes of the series “will be an all-new story about the seven-member Vox Machina team at D&D Level 7 on their first ‘grown-up’ mission, which occurs prior to Critical Role’s first RPG show”.
The series will then adapt the Briarwood arc from the original web series, “in which the Vox Machina crew avenge the murder of the rulers of the town of Whitestone and most of their offspring by the evil Lord and Lady Briarwood”. The series will also adapt “other classic Vox Machina story arcs””
