About Taryon Darrington. Our new Player Character, played by Sam Riegel after the departure of Scanlan Shorthalt.
I don't know whether or not he should be considered part of Vox Machina yet. The majority of the other player characters are currently hostile towards him even though he has joined them for now. But the fact is that Taryon is Sam's new character and will most likely become an official part of Vox M…

I apologize for my unexpected absence after my grandfather's funeral. We've moved him from his lifelong home (several states away) to my parents' house. Things are settling down for them, and I'm back at my home and work now. I'll try to catch up on wiki maintenance next week.Read more >
Talks Machina has aired five episodes as of this post, and in that time it has shown itself to be a valuable resource.
For those of you unaware, Talks Machina is an official aftershow hosted by Brian Wayne Foster where the cast and crew of Critical Role discuss the most recent episode and answer questions sent in by fans. Geek & Sundry uploaded the first four episodes. The first episode can be viewed here and the other three are here.
Talks Machina has already provided a good amount of information: explaining motivations for character decisions, clarifying details that were uncertain at the time, and discussing events that took place pre-stream.
Because of this, I propose that the episodes of Talks Machina be included in this wiki. Being able to ref…Read more >
As I go through the episodes to write the synopses, I will be keeping my ear out for any needed citations. If you have a request for one from chapter 1 you can added it in the comments here.Read more >
Since this has come up a few times, I figured I'd use a blog post for easy reference to explain why this wiki uses chapters when Critical Role and Geek & Sundry do not, as well as to lay out a few reasons for the current format. Of course, this (and everything else) is always up for community discussion!
With over two hundred hours' worth of Critical Role episodes (see the "Running Times" spreadsheet by CritRoleStats), this series has already produced more content in about a year than most multimillion-dollar TV shows produce over their entire lifetimes. That means there's also a lot of content for this wiki to cover—and a lot for Critters to remember.
Toward the end of what we now call Chapter 1, this wiki's founder, Dexcuracy, s…

I created a FAQ taken from Matt's twitter feed and from the live stream and reworked some of the pronouns. I am not sure where to link it directly on the top of even how to do that so if anyone can do that, that would be great.

The previous message I had here is no longer releveant.
Originally I thought there were grammar mistakes in Yug'Voril and K'Varn's name spelling. After looking through some of the episode descriptions, it appears that the names for these locations and characters are also somewhat inconsistant. I'll revert the changes I made on both of these pages for now. But as a warning, if future information is inconsistant as characters and locations are introduced, this could be confusing to others as the Critical Role universe expands.Read more >
I've been switching events to past tense, specifically when referring to the events of a battle on different characters pages e.g. Rimefang, Murghol, etc. Should I continue or do we want articles to be in the present tense?Read more >
Hey guys, quick post here: As this wiki is growing, I find it tedious to communicate through user message walls and page talk pages. I think a more centralized discussion will benefit the wiki, which is why I created a Slack Team for Critical Role: criticalrole.slack.com
Slack is a chat client designed for collaboration in teams and I think it is pretty neat. Slack will be the optimal place to ask questions about the wiki, discuss the content of pages and stuff like that, as everybody (that wants to) gets notified of chat messages. This way we can all help eachother out and questions will not get hidden by Wikia's system of talk pages. This Slack team might even grow into a place to chat about Critical Role when it is not on stream. I hope …Read more >
Hello everybody. We are already 15 episodes into Critical Role and the wiki is already 12 weeks old, so I can't think of a better time to do an introduction than now. (:3)
So hello everybody, wether you have been with the Geek and Sundry community from the beginning or just joined (perhaps one of the 300 subscribers, a crazy amount, from last broadcast), welcome to one of the best communities on the internet, and one of the few to have a Twitch chat you actually want to read ;D.
Other than a quick welcome, I don't have much to say for now, other than a quick question about cutting Critical Role into seasons.
It is, as of now, not yet clear if Critical Role will be cut into seasons or if it will be a long string of episodes, effectively withou…
