Hello again Happy Readers!
I am a D&D latecomer. I never got into it back when it was first released, nor did I play in college. I actually started watching Critical Role before I’d ever played a game. That was where I began to learn the rules. It wasn’t until I’d watched most of the first campaign that I actually began to play an online version with some friends. Soon, I was hooked, and now I am a DM who runs a custom campaign in Fantasy Grounds on a bi-weekly basis.
Thus, I owe quite a bit to the Critical Role cast for their introduction, not to mention the sheer fact that the show is awesome to watch. So, when they did their kickstarter campaign to make Vox Machina into an honest-to-gods animated feature, you bet your Assimar I was all about supporting it!
They ended up raising over $11.3 MILLION dollars to make the Legend of Vox Machina Animated Special, setting a fundraising record on Kickstarter. Now, the feature is in production and will soon be available for the whole world to enjoy on AMAZON PRIME!
That’s right, even YOU can see the results of this crazy fan-funded endeavor!
But…. right now I’m gonna show you stuff I got that you CAN’T get because you are just a tad too late to the party! Be jealous! Be very jealous!
The Whole Shebang
Here it is! The whole Fighter level pledge pack. I had to go for this one because it had the Trinket Plushie. Honestly, though, the Dagger Dagger Dagger letter opener set it my favorite thing in the whole reward pile. It’s all pretty good though. They did not skimp on quality, which is what I’m expecting with the Animated Feature too!
Here’s Trinket! He comes with his own set of Bulette Hide Armor, and several pink bows given to him by Vax’ildan (twin brother of his half-elf owner Vex’ahlia). I think he looks like a sad Eyore. He’s a gud boi!
The Dagger Dagger Dagger letter opener set for the $3 Million dollar mark. The half-elf rogue Vax used four different daggers in the campaign. They dealt extra damage of certain types. I know two of them for sure: red = Flamtougue Dagger (fire damage), green = Dagger of Venom (poison damage), and I think the third one Whisper (psychic damage).
8×10 Limited Edition Production Art (“Jazz Hands”)
The rest of the goodies are:
- The Legend of Vox Machina Dice set with both the Critical Role Logo D20 & the stretch goal Vox Machina D20.
- Vox Machina knitted beanie.
- Vox Machina character sticker set.
- The Legend of Vox Machina playing card set. It has the Ziggurat under Whitestone on the box with Vox Machina silloetted in the foreground. The cards feature Lord Sylas & Lady Delilah Briarwood, Cassandra de Rolo, Anna Ripley, and the corrupted Sun Tree!
Where to Watch Critical Role
If you are a fan of Critical Role & Vox Machina, then you probably know all the lore and are just as hyped as I am about the upcoming animated series.
You can also catch some awesome one-shots and short campaigns and tons of other content that will make you smile. In fact, I HIGHLY recommend all the episodes of Narrative Telephone if you simply want to laugh your ass off for an hour at a time.

Happy Reading (and Is It Thursday Yet?)
Matter conversion technology—Matt-Con—has broadened the scope of mankind’s existence. It has opened up the real possibility of viable colonies on other planets in our solar system, and even space itself. Anywhere matter can be captured or energy from the sun can be felt, the possibility of expanding human habitation exists.
In this volume:
Quicksilver (short story)
The space station Chariot of Helios—on its way to Mercury to become a power collection station for Earth’s growing need for energy to power matt-con tech—encounters a strange anomaly that threatens ship and crew.
Null Gravitas (short story)
New crew and new relationships form above the skies of Venus. A post-prequel to Escaping Aurora.
Escaping Aurora (novella)
The sudden destruction of mankind’s first atmospheric terraforming platform leaves three unlucky exonauts struggling to survive in the skies of Venus aboard a cobbled-together airship. Meanwhile, the commander of the space station above battles obstacles that might keep her from rescuing her stranded husband and crew in time.
Peacekeeper Incorporated’s breakthrough nanotechnology could bring repeat offense crime to an end, freeing society from the need for criminal incarcerations. But first, they have to finish testing it. With funding on the line, and time to prove out the project getting short, the lead scientist must find a way speed things up. That’s unfortunate for his guinea pig, and anyone who would stand in his way.
Can the goal of ending most crime justify committing one… even a few?
And what happens when you conflate altruism with egotism?
Find out in eConscience Beta, where two lab techs and an uncouth petty criminal must outwit a brilliant but sociopathic scientist who’ll stop at nothing to establish his legacy as the man who ended crime.
