Plot Synopsis

Based on characters and adventures of Critical Role's first livestreamed tabletop role-playing game (RPG) campaign, THE LEGEND OF VOX MACHINA is an animated fantasy-adventure series for adults that follows Vox Machina, a band of misfits with a fondness for boozing and brawling. In a desperate attempt to pay off their mounting bar tab, these unlikely heroes end up on a quest to save the realm of Exandria from dark magical forces. From a sinister necromancer to a powerful curse, the group confronts a variety of obstacles that not only test their skills, but also the strength of their bond. THE LEGEND OF VOX MACHINA premiered on Friday, January 28, 2022, as Amazon Prime Video released the first three episodes. Three episodes drop each Friday through February 18.

In 2019, Critical Role launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce a 22-minute animated special based on the characters and adventures of Vox Machina, their original livestreamed tabletop RPG campaign. They met their initial funding goal within minutes, and thanks to their passionate fanbase, the campaign continued to gain traction, raising over $11.3 million and becoming one of the most funded Film & Video projects in Kickstarter history. The fan support allowed Critical Role to expand the special into a 10-episode season.
On Friday, February 18, 2022, Amazon Prime Video released the final three episodes of THE LEGEND OF VOX MACHINA's first season:

"Depths of Deceit": After Percy confronts his old nemesis, Dr. Anna Ripley, a tenuous partnership is struck. Despite Percy's protests that she can't be trusted, Vox Machina brings Ripley along. She leads them through the traps under the castle, but soon the team is double-crossed by one of their own.

"Whispers at the Ziggurat": Vox Machina launches a final assault against the Briarwoods atop the Ziggurat. Battling the dark magic of Delilah and the vampiric strength of Sylas, a worried Vex and an unhinged Percy try to save their siblings. But their best efforts may not be enough as the Briarwoods near completion of their secret ritual.

"The Darkness Within": Vox Machina has stopped the Briarwoods' evil ritual, but at a heavy cost. As they flee the Ziggurat to save one of their own, Percy is eager to take revenge on their prisoner, Delilah Briarwood. When Vex implores him to let go of his vengeance, Percy must confront the darkness within himself.

When Amazon Studios picked up the series, it built on that support by ordering an additional 14 episodes, bringing the total number of episodes to 24 across two seasons.
