Oh hello everyone! Hi! And welcome to our fall 2019 State of the Role! (cheering) Aww, magic. Magic. To celebrate the season, we decided to have this community update delivered by the international icon of autumn. Dani, bring in that pumpkin! Thank you Dani, thank you pumpkin. All right. Ew, it’s a little gooey and soggy, but okay. Cold hand lewd critters. Nope, that’s smudged, it says old and new critters a lick, erm, alike. Shit bass bet, no, it has been an exciting few moths. Moths. Mo, months here at Critical Role– Okay, no no, this doesn’t work. Why don’t we just talk like normal? Yeah, as Sam was saying, we’ve had quite a few things going on that we’re excited to finally be able to share with you all. I hope everyone is enjoying our fall programming so far. I am beyond proud of our entire production team for the insane job that they’ve done on UnDeadwood, Mini Primetime, season two of Pub Draw. I mean everyone here has truly outdone themselves this season, and if you haven’t checked out any of our new content, do us the pleasure of validating our art hearts and please check them out. Check them out. Speaking of amazing art, we’re also halfway through the release of our second installment of Vox Machina: Origins, our comic book series made with our friends at Dark Horse. And if you haven’t read it, holy cows guys, it is pretty good. It is pretty good. It’s pretty good. And Vox Machina is taking on a whole new life as we continue to progress in making our animated series, The Legend of Vox Machina, that you incredible critters so generously funded through our Kickstarter. Scripts have started to roll in which means recording sessions are not far behind. We’ll have the storyboards where we’ll get to see our first glimpses of what each episode will look like, so stay tuned for more exciting announcements in the weeks to come. And you all may have seen our big update we made a few weeks ago announcing the awesome partnerships we have lined up. It’s been a dream of ours to bring these characters to life in other mediums like novels and action figures and apparently it’s been one of your dreams too. I mean it was your enthusiasm that opened the doors to opportunities that we never even thought were possible. And they empowered us to choose the ones that made sense for us, so if you guys want more information about the partnerships, check out the link below. I can’t believe I’m finally going to be an action figure that I get to design myself. My plan is so much closer to fruition. (demonic otherworldly sounds) What now? Nothing. But all of this is quite the adventure, and one that we’re excited to go on with you. When I say that it’s an adventure, it is truly just that. The future is filled with excitement and often uncharted territory, especially for an experimental digital media company built by a bunch of adults playing make believe. Through this crazy expansion, somebody just farted, who did it? Was it you? It was the couch. No, it was the couch. (laughter) This stays in the roll. Through this crazy expansion, our main goal still is, and always will be, to tell the stories that we want to tell and encourage others to do the same. Protecting that is incredibly important to us. Yes, we are still an independent company that remains 100% creator owned. That means that everything we do here is created by us, the people on this couch and those chairs. Marisha, Matt, Laura, Liam, Travis, Taliesin, me, and superimposed Ashley head. As we continue onward into this next wave of creative endeavors, we wanna thank you for coming along with us, supporting these ideas, supporting each other, and sharing in the joy and insanity of it all. We love you guys. We love you guys! So much! All right, let’s… Let’s clean these up. Yeah, yay. Hoo boy. Oh we’re really cleaning it? We’re really doing that? I’m taking them home. Go team. Go team. Go team! We’re an indie company, that means we clean up our own leaves. We all pitch in. Every single one of us. Where did we get autumn leaves in Los Angeles? Share and share alike. They’re fake, Taliesin.
