Travis Willingham and Sam Riegel On the Success of Critical Role's Animated Kickstarter, Future Plans & More

March 12th - via: 411mania.com
It’s an exciting time to be a fan of Critical Role. The most popular D&D series on the internet has been making some big moves as of late, striking out on their own after a long and successful run on Geek & Sundry’s Twitch channel, as well as Legendary Digital Networks’ Alpha streaming service. The series that started out as a bunch of beloved voice actors playing their home game (originally Pathfinder, converted to D&D for the show) to a new audience is now a bonafide cultural phenomenon for gamers. The narratively-rich and emotionally-enrapturing adventures that Matthew Mercer guides Marisha Ray, Sam Riegel, Liam O’Brien, Laura Bailey, Travis Willingham, Taliesin Jaffe, and Ashley Johnson through are watched by tens of thousands of viewers a week. It is one of Twitch’s top 100 most watched channels, now hosting a variety of CR-produced shows including the Talks Machina after-show on Tuesday’s, Brian W. Foster’s interview series Between the Sheets and more. (Read More)
