1 Min Read

Critical Role has teamed up with Penguin Random House and will be releasing The World of Critical Role, a brand new, nonfiction book on September 15!

Critical Role is one of the most watched tabletop role-playing livestreams on Twitch, regularly reaching 40 000+ viewers every Thursday night. Currently on their second campaign, following the adventures of The Mighty Nein, their success seems like something out of a fairy tale.

The book will contain never-before-seen illustrations, a glimpse behind the scenes and character insights from the entire cast. The book will span all the way from the start of a Dungeons and Dragons home game between a group of friends – who also happen to be voice actors – all the way through the beginning of the live stream, to where Critical Role is today.

If you are a US resident above the age of 18, you also have your chance to get your name put down in Critical Role history! Just pre-order your book here, and then send in your receipt here before March 12 to get your name printed in The World of Critical Role.
