Critical Role Tal’Dorei Reborn from Critical Role's Darrington Press

Critical Role's publishing arm, Darrington Press, has announced that it is relaunching the Tal'Dorei campaign setting (which was originally published inn 2017 by Green Ronin). The new setting is called Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting Reborn and will launch in late 2021/early 2022.

Since we launched Darrington Press, one product has been asked for again and again: the popular and out-of-print Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting.

Today, we are delighted to announce that the sourcebook is coming back, in a shiny new form: Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting Reborn—lovingly hashtagged #TalDoreiReborn for short. This definitive sourcebook brings the locations, people, creatures, and character options of Critical Role’s Tal’Dorei to your gaming table, complete with 5th edition stats for new magic items, subclasses, and even the members of Vox Machina. Whether you’re a fan of the original sourcebook or are totally new to Tal’Dorei, this book is for you.

The book is double the size of the original, at 280 pages, and advances the setting by two decades.

Inside, you'll find info on each major region of the setting, 9 new subclasses and 5 new backgrounds, new magic items, creatures, and updated stat blocks for the members of Vox Machina.

There will also be a deluxe boxed set from Beadle & Grimm's.

The FAQ indicates that it will not be possible to buy the PDF-only version at launch, but if you buy from the Critical Role shop you get the PDF bundled in (not if you buy it elsewhere though).

Still, their copyright issues must be…. intricate.
I'd bet they cleared the way with WotC, defining what they could or could not use and ajusted. Amazon owns nothing, Paizo owns nothing, and I doubt Paizo would try to claim ownership of any IP CR got from them with the serial numbers scratched off, because well, they did a whole lot of that too in the past.

Considering the copyright clause in the WotC Wildemount book, there’s probably a similar clause with Amazon. They’re production partners, not co-owners of the IP.

Yeah they managed to keep Legendary Entertainment from having control of the IP when they were just getting started I can't imagine them giving it up to Amazon now especially since Mercer has talked about having regrets about losing the rights to a few other web series he did beforehand.
 


From the Darrington Press Site:
  • All members of Vox Machina (and some companions!) have been given full stat blocks as well, perfect for bringing these adventurers directly into your games

Personally, I hope it's more in the style of NPCs than as PCs. I'd rather have Vox members making brief cameos then moving on.

This is how I love to use them. The party goes to a tavern, and there's Scanlan, playing one of his songs. They spot Percy and Vex hitting a famous night spot, he looking like he's only there to make her happy, she happy. You can't use them any other way with lower level parties. Maybe as patrons, but... meh.

I always like to use famous characters in play as the dark reflection of their public persona. Like all the stories you hear about them (the campaigns in CR) are just publicist spin and they’re nowhere near as cool in “person” as in the stories.
