Critical Role Critical Role's New Show - Exandria Unlimited!

Critical Role is launching a new 8-week D&D 5E campaign on June 24th called Exandria Unlimited.

"Exandria Unlimited is the newest eight episode mini-campaign brought to you by, and existing within, the same world as Critical Role. Following a fresh-faced and freshly formed crew of characters, this adventure begins in Emon, a city still recovering from the scars of the Chroma Conclave attack nearly 30 years later."


The show features Matt Mercer (as a player not DM), Aabria Iyenger (who will be the DM for this show), Aimee Carrero (who currently plays She-Ra), Robbie Daymond (voice of Marvel's animated Spider-man), Ashley Johnson (co-founder of Critical Role), and Liam O'Brien (also from the main Critical Role show).


I am so hyped for this!

They certainly sold it well, and I'm glad the Matt gets to play some. Being a full time DM can be rough. I expect it to be very good, although I'd have said "2 months" rather than 8 weeks if I were them to give them the flexibility to wrap it up anywhere between 7 and 10 weeks depending upon how the story unfolds.

I really wish that Matt had said that Campaign 3 would feature 'all your old favorites' or something to that end. Everything they've said about campaign 3 has been very vague - seemingly intentionally. I have this lingering feeling that it means someone is leaving - and I'd put my money on Sam.

If it happens, it happens. This group has been together as players, friends and business partners for a long time now, and nothing remains stable forever.

"Exandria Unlimited is the newest eight episode . . .

The show features Matt Mercer (as a player not DM), Aabria Iyenger (who will be the DM for this show), Aimee Carrero (who currently plays She-Ra), Robbie Daymond (voice of Marvel's animated Spider-man), Ashley Johnson (co-founder of Critical Role), and Liam O'Brien (also from the main Critical Role show).
So, does "Unlimited" refer to the number of PCs? Because eight episodes sounds limited to me.

as far as "Big Announcement" goes this was a little underwhelming. i am interested because i want to see Matt play, but i dont know who this new DM is (or GM as they kept saying) since i havent delved into other RPG shows yet. i really thought they were going to have an announcement to coincide with all the WOTC big summer stuff, who knows maybe still.

they also didnt comment on if the episodes are 2 hours, 4 hours so 8 episodes could be a decent little story.

honestly i am hooked on what they put out until i'm not, and i dont think this will knock me out of interest, and i am looking forward to campaign 2 wrap up coming up. the battle royal not as much.

That's quite a leap. Maybe everything's vague because they haven't cemented the details, and if they told the fandom things that didn't actually come to pass they'd get naughty word on. When Marvel first announces the next wave of movies, do they give all the details? No, they say we're doing Wave 47 and here are the titles. Then as we get closer to the release date we get more details. So as we get closer to Campaign 3, we'll get more details.

i think the fact they can recorrd their sessions now instead of playing live every thursday means Sam wouldnt leave. he gets his time to work for disney and video games, plus i honestly think with all the subs they have, merch and publishing deals, they make enough to pay everyone on and off screen there and are happy to continue. the only thing i could see happening is another ashley type casting happen where they film aay from california and they cant make it as much. but then again recording would be easier then live. not sure why they kept it live for so long, i guess it's a left over type of thing from when they were able to interact with chat at the start.

They also used story teller several times during the preview, they may just be trying to use more inclusive or precise language instead of DM

I would be hard pressed to think they would shift away fro 5E for the main show with all the available tie ends and sponsors that are apart on D&D, but it wouldn't be that surprising to see an EU Christmas break storyline trying out a different system.

Why? They are all friends and business partners - why would you think someone is leaving? And what makes you think it would be Sam?

Seems like you are kind of wildly speculating here based on ... I’m not sure what ...

I could see them using other systems for a couple of these Exandria Unlimited spin-off campaigns, though they're clearly sticking with D&D for this first one - the playtest footage included shots of tablets running D&D Beyond.

Not that I have any opinion or insight into that specifically, but friends and business partners can move on and do new stuff when other opportunities present themselves and remain friends. That happens all the time. I'm friends with plenty of people who have worked with me in the past.
