There’s going to be a brand new, original Dimension 20 series on Dropout, and the trailer just dropped!
Dimension 20: The Ravening War is a dark, twisty prequel to the hugely popular Dimension 20: A Crown of Candy, based on the creative premise of a “Game of Thrones meets Candyland” world.
Dimension 20: The Ravening War will be led by Matthew Mercer, widely regarded as one of the top Dungeon Masters in the game. Mercer is the mastermind that has enchanted and gripped fans with three acclaimed Critical Role campaigns, as well as being the Chief Creative Officer at Critical Role Productions. His hosting of Dimension 20: The Ravening War will mark the first time he will lead a campaign as DM for Dimension 20.
This isn’t the first time Critical Role and Dimension 20 have merged on stream or screen, though. Dimension 20‘s Brennan Lee Mulligan hosted the prequel event miniseries, Exandria Unlimited: Calamity, on Critical Role last summer, and Aabria Iyengar hosted the fourteen-episode Exandria Unlimited campaign in 2021. Now, their roles are flipped — Critical Role‘s Mercer is hosting the prequel event miniseries for Dimension 20, and Mulligan and Iyengar join the series as players at the table.
Dimension 20: The Ravening War will be a true all-star event series for the D&D community where world premier Game Master Mercer is joined by Mulligan (Dimension 20, Worlds Beyond Number), Iyengar (Dimension 20, Worlds Beyond Number), Lou Wilson (Dimension 20, Worlds Beyond Number), Zac Oyama (Dimension 20, Not Another D&D Podcast), and Ms. Marvel‘s Anjali Bhimani.
Since its launch in 2018, Dropout.tv has rapidly positioned itself as the place to be for D&D streaming talent. This latest series with some of the biggest names in the area comes at a time when the game’s already thriving worldwide community is rapidly growing and reaching new audiences.
The trailer for Dimension 20: The Ravening War is available now, and the series will premiere exclusively on the Dropout streaming service on Wednesday, May 10. The series’ first episode will also be made available for free on YouTube on May 17.
