      I love how they have it on screen like watching a stock ticker, lol.

      But seriously guys, did you honestly expect anything less? We love you all! You do amazing things and you're such a great force in the gaming community! <3 <3 <3

      We broke Marisha months ago. Back when the dice first went on sale, and were sold out before Matt even finished announcements. Ah, good times.

      The fans have spoken, this should be a beginning !

      Start this, do this, run with it ... give us the D&D series we all dreamt of. And then, if the love affair continues and there isn't enough D&D left for the gang, bring our beloved Vox Machina back as an ensemble cast and roam the universes ... Grog in a 50's Capone season as a doorman enforcer, Vex and Vax in WWII as british spies, the crew working through space bounty hunting ;-)

      It's clear what we love, your deep characters, the chemistry of your friendships, and the Mercer magic spice.

      Congrats to all of you, you are dearly loved.

      Now, can we get another stretch please? Maybe a proper one so i can get some sleep? 😂

      Now, if Adult Swim will just pick it up for syndication... dream come true (and pay for The Mighty Nein series too)... :-)

      Congratulations! I'm so glad you are keeping control of your creation and that decision has been so generously supported by critters everywhere! Remember to breath and know you are loved <3

    26. Victoria Alexander on

      Yoooo, I know yall are excited to be smashing those stretch goals. As an animator though, I kinda' wanna warn against just adding more and more and more animation to your stretch goals. $750k was definitely a low-ball for 22 minutes of animation. I hope you realize that, right?

      Almost at 2.5 mill WOOT WOOT!

      At this rate they might as well do a movie and act their parts. They already have their costumes. =]

      Reminds me of way back when, when they announced their first ever shirt to go on sale and by the time they finished the announcement the shirts had completely sold out.

      Many moons later, and here we are. Official release/announcement of the animated special, and over $2 MILLION.

      Nothing but love, y'all. <3

      Stand up Marisha .... this is the water receding before the tsunami. 10 million might be low balling it now. I just increased my pledge and you haven't felt the brand new #critter love yet.

      This is my first kick starter pledge. The least I can do for Critical Role is throw them a little money for all the years of entertainment. Congrats, and this has to be easiest donation I and my wife have given to anyone in our lives. The cast and crew deserve all the success that life has to offer.

    41. Frances Teixeira on

      I think we would like a series...
      3 times as much as you asked for right now....
      What can you do in 45 days!

      Love all of you guys. Keep up the great work.

      Marisha's response actually brought tears to my eyes!
