Story Locale: Los Angeles, CA

THE CRITICAL ROLE PHENOMENON: With nearly 200 episodes across two thrilling Dungeons & Dragons campaign seasons, over 468k followers on the Twitch livestreaming service, and over 827k subscribers on their official YouTube channel, Critical Role is the most popular D&D gameplay livestream. Every week, viewers tune in to watch the next chapter of this story-driven series as the talented cast improvises epic adventures & memorable characters.

PRODUCT FEATURES: Jacketless hardcover with full-color photography, never-before-seen illustrations, and AN EXCLUSIVE INTRODUCTION WRITTEN BY THE CAST MEMBERS.

MOST SUCCESSFUL FILM/TELEVISION KICKSTARTER PROJECT IN HISTORY: In March 2019, the Critical Role team launched a Kickstarter project, hoping to fund a 20-minute special with $750,000. Within an hour, the project had already raised over a million dollars. One month later the project broke a Kickstarter record and raised $11.3 million, with more than 88,000 people contributing to the campaign.

SOON TO BE AN ANIMATED SERIES: With the stunning success of Critical Role’s Kickstarter, a full, 10-episode animated series will debut in Fall 2020 on Amazon Prime.

THE BEGINNING OF A NEW PARTNERSHIP: Critical Role and PRH have signed a multi-book deal, including nonfiction books and novels. Other Critical Role partnerships include comics from Dark Horse, and toys from Funko and McFarlane Toys.

HUGE TWITCH AUDIENCE: Episode live-streams typically attract over 75,000 live viewers, with Video on Demand views numbering in the millions. Critical Role is the #1 most watched Dungeons & Dragons channel and the #90 most watched overall channel on Twitch as of March 2020.

Liz Marsham writes books of all types for readers of all ages. She began her storytelling career as an editor at DC Comics and Disney Publishing. As a D&D character, she would most likely be a warlock: She can do a couple of cool things in a row, but then she needs a nap. She runs a tiny fiefdom in Southern California with her husband, son, two cats, and what she insists is a “perfectly reasonable” number of dice.

Critical Role features seven popular voiceover actors diving into epic fantasy RPG adventures, led by veteran game master Matthew Mercer. What began in 2012 as a bunch of friends playing in each other’s living rooms has evolved into a multi-platform entertainment sensation, attracting nearly a million viewers every week.
