A Special Thank You Message From Ashley Johnson

Our very own Pike here with a special thank you message all of the way from NYC!

Since Ashley recorded her video, we've raised over $7.1M with 52k backers joining our campaign so far AND The Legend of Vox Machina is now the 9th most funded Kickstarter project ever.  These are incredible milestones that we've achieved together and hope that you are as proud of the Critter community as we are.

As a reminder, our next stretch goal is $7.5M, which will allow us to create two additional episodes of Briarwoods goodness!

There are 37 days left in our campaign and we deeply appreciate all of your support! Let’s keep this momentum going: keep sharing and keep loving each other!

      And with more than a month to go, $7.5 million - achievement unlocked.

      At this rate Sam will be drinking out of a beer keg.

      Ashley, Your welcome & your gorgeous, lol. Super excited about the series. I hope I can increase my pledge at the end. Our school Tabletop club has donated as well. Here’s to RPGs being mainstream now, Hazzah!

      The final stretch goal better be a MIGHTY NEIN one shot!

      Is it weird that I almost wish that one of the rewards was those pajamas from the kickstarter video? Perhaps with a critical role patch on the pocket?

    9. Nod_Hero on

      The 10 million stretch goal should be a MST3K viewing of one of the episodes.

      A woman with two globes in her room. One of those had better be a secret whiskey bar.

      No pressure or anything but Star Wars IV only cost 11M dollars to make. You are nearly there. I expect nothing shy of equally impactful / culture shattering awesomeness. :)

      I don't know why, but I really love that she has 2 globes in her place. Classy lady.

      I think we're on pace for it... can we break 20.4M and be the #1 most funded kickstarter?

      Ashley!! So good to see your face! We Critters sure do miss you! I am so insanely proud to be a part of this community! I have never felt more love and acceptance from a group of people that I don't even personally know than I have here. Thank you all for all that you do! We love you!!

      If they reach the last stretch goal they should add a new goal for an episode with Gail and the Hendersons from the D&D Beyond add

    21. Michael Pomare on

      I really hope the kickstarter funds the Briarwoods plus, mostly because I want the whole campaign animated but also because I want Keyleth's greatest moments - the natural 1 in Thordak's lair, and her "it's fine, we're gods" moment - lovingly animated.

      All the love to Ashley and the crit role team!

      And all the love for the critter community, I only recently joined the critter community and I'm glad I was able to support this project!

      I'm so addicted to the main campaigns (on ep42 of campaign 2 now) and loving the one shots.

      Let's keep crit'ing!

      There has never been a group more worthy of support. Everyone one of you is an absolute inspiration. What you have achieved professionally and creatively is remarkable, but what truly amazes me is that you are all such wonderful, generous, kindhearted people. I am so glad that you all found each other, and I am so fortunate that you all choose to share your very special game with the world.

    29. tarasis on


      Suggestion, add a visible $1 or $5 tier so that people coming along who want to chip in but don’t feel like they have the $20 of the base level. I know you can manually change the $20 amount to less, but someone new to KS won’t.

      I started watching in 2015 and I have fallen in love with the comradeship of the characters and you guys. You are beautiful souls and my biggest hope is that you can do this again with your current campaign as well.
