Critical Role Critical Role’s 7-hour Campaign Finale

It’s not the last of Critical Role (obviously) but it is the end of their second campaign this Thursday. And it’s 7 hours long!

Critical Role’s highly successful second campaign -- The Mighty Nein -- premiered over three years ago and has built up over 530 hours of adventures, including over 440 villains conquered and over 100 hours of battles (source: CritRoleStats), and this Thursday, June 3, the epic saga of Critical Role’s second campaign is set to embark on its final adventure.

Since the launch of the campaign on January 11, 2018, Critical Role has chronicled the story of Jester Lavorre (Laura Bailey), Yasha Nydoorin (Ashley Johnson), Caleb Widogast (Liam O’Brien), Beauregard "Beau" Lionett (Marisha Ray), Nott the Brave/Veth Brenatto (Sam Riegel), Fjord (Travis Willingham), Mollymauk "Molly" Tealeaf and Caduceus Clay (both played by Taliesin Jaffe) of The Mighty Nein as they explored Wildemount, formed relationships, spat in the face of death and buried allies, realized that not all goblins are as they seem, discovered the power a friendly cupcake (sprinkled with some Dust of Deliciousness) can have in befriending powerful foes, and showcased the resiliency one can have in the face of insurmountable odds time and time again.

Experience the final chapter of The Mighty Nein as Critical Role concludes the legend of this ragtag group of miscreants that millions across the globe have come to know and love. How will their journey end and what’s next from the world of Critical Role? Tune in to find out!

The final episode of Critical Role’s Campaign 2: The Mighty Nein airs this Thursday, June 3 2021 at 7PM PST simultaneously on Twitch (twitch.tv/criticalrole) and YouTube (youtube.com/criticalrole), with the replayable VOD of the show available on Critical Role’s YouTube channel the following Monday.

Critters…. How do you want to do this?

The College of Whispers bard could be great for her to use her singing voice, as well as be funny and sinister all at the same time. It would be a chance for her to really spread her wings and get into the meat of the party interaction. She was on the outside as Pike due to her absences, and Yasha missed so much time and was a bit of a longer most of the campaign.

It is decidedly hard to pick a great choice for Laura as she is so good at making the most of everything. I'd love to see her play an artificer, a summoning spellcaster (Circle of Shepherd Druid?) or an Illusionist as I think she would be insanely inventive with how she uses their core abilities. I personally think her interest was peaked when Liam made up spells for his wizard in this game, and she wants to try her hand at some creative spell creation.

Both campaigns Laura has had to deal with losing out on her preferred character class to someone who multiclasses into paladin later. Clearly the solution is for her to play a paladin

I'm not sure if anyone's ready to play a bard again yet after Scanlan. Ashley would do fine with it, but nobody can match Sam for spontaneous extemporised lyrics.

This IS true, but the Bard is the biggest swiss army knife in 5E. Someone could easily play a Swords or Valor bard as a blade dancer, a Lore or Creation Bard as a wizard-adjacent, a dwarven chanting skald-like bard, or Matt can make something up from scratch like he seems to do a few times every campaign.

College of Whispers is a very different type of bard. It is more about subtext than turning it up to 11. She'd have room for some Scanlan type fun as part of the facade, but if played as described in the books, it would be an incredibly different experience.
