      Well, the artwork at least looks decent. Looking forward to seeing and hearing more about it. I like the robotic beholder, and the drow looks good.

      Thanks!

      The mechanical Beholder just gave me a little idea for another adventure that I am going to be running at some time.
      I may have to make it a little more waterproof, but great idea.

      I would love to see a cartoon series in Netflix, but I wonder if Hasbro would be looking to buy/license Critical Roles IP instead, given the proven fan base and the fact that their will be a first season in production already.

      Or, they would likely look to a property they already have with a wide fan base. Something like Dragon Lance or the Drizzt storylines.

      I dunno about cartoon stuff (this is from the upcoming book), but the AI crew is canonically in the Forgotten Realms.

      I can't figure out the annotations on the Beholder mech. Are they written in Thorass or Dethek?

      Funny story: The 4e Player's Strategy Guide had similar style artwork. I had a friend who was into 4e so I gave him a copy as a present - and he threw a fit. Couldn't STAND the cartoony artwork. I admit it's not my cup of tea, either, but the contents were perfectly useable (and useful). Plus I gave him a free book, he should've been grateful. Oh well.

      Well, it is fairly similar, since they are both the work of Mike Krahulik of Penny Arcade.

      Yes. Unlikely.
