Storyline of The Legend of Vox Machina

After creating Exandria for his personal D&D campaign in 2012, Matthew Mercer developed the actual-play web series Critical Role in 2015 based on the imaginary universe. On the continent of Tal’Dorei, the majority of the tale takes place, including Emon and Whitestone.

Vox Machina at D&D Level 7 on their first ‘grown up’ assignment, which takes place prior to Critical Role’s debut RPG show, is depicted in the first two episodes of the series. It then adapts the original web series Briarwood arc, “in which the crew avenge the murder of the rulers of Whitestone and most their offspring by Lord and Lady Briarwood” a vengeance plot. The Chroma Conclave storyline, as well as “other famous Vox Machina tale cycles,” will be adapted for the show.

The Good Part of the Series:

Many people will like The Legend of Vox Machina. There is surprisingly little Critical Role knowledge required to follow the animated series. For those of us who grew up playing Dungeons & Dragons, the experience is eerily similar. For the simple reason that is exactly what it appears to be.

Everything is watchable, if not delightful, on a technical level. Vampires aren’t exactly known for their subtlety, but Vox Machina manages to straddle the fine line between serious high fantasy and the low-brow table comedy your friends are surely producing with their own characters.

In addition to that, the acting is first-rate. Even if you don’t care about any of the main characters, you’ll enjoy seeing the supporting cast members do their best work. Matt Mercer, the game’s narrator, doesn’t play all of the NPCs, which would have been a lot of fun. The Legend of Vox Machina, on the other hand, pulled in some of the best voice actors in the business. Your geeky voice acting bingo card will feature the likes of Stephanie Beatriz, David Tennant, and Rory McCann.

The Bad Part of the Series:

The first episode is a lot more tough than anyone expected. For those who haven’t already fallen in love with the show, it’s something between a lot and a complete disappointment. What makes the game feel like an actual D&D campaign is also what makes the game feel like it’s a genuine D&D campaign in a horrible way.

The first episode’s brutal violence, length of time spent watching a character vomit, and frequency of “fucks” felt like an attempt to scare away viewers who weren’t really their target audience. Then congratulations on accomplishing your aim.

Release Date and Where To Watch :

The series released on January 25, 2022 and is available on Amazon Prime Video.

Final Thoughts

It has received an excellent ratings of 8.6 out of 10 on IMDb and is a must watch for D&D fantics.
