  • Julkaistu 21.02.2020
  • Welcome to the first of our behind-the-scenes video series on the making of The Legend of Vox Machina! Step into the writers room and meet the scribes crafting the story of The Legend of Vox Machina: Brandon Auman, Eugene Son, Ashly Burch, Jennifer Muro, Marc Bernardin, Chris "Doc" Wyatt and Kevin Burke, Daniel Thomsen, Mae Catt, and Meredith Kecskemety as the writer's assistant.
    A very special thanks to our animation partner, Titmouse, our partners at Amazon Studios and Amazon Prime Video, and of course the 88,887 Kickstarter backers that made this dream a reality. We love you!

    I don't know if anyone pointed this out but they're technically not the first ones to adapt in RPG campaign into an animated series there was one I believe in the 80s called record of lodoss War which was a campaign from a Japanese RPG game which was adapted to a manga and then to an anime

      No. It's more a case of, getting Orion Acaba back after all this time and everything that's happened is probably an uncomfortable prospect for them.

    Things that made me stop the video because I was too excited and I had to take some calming breaths:
    -Just a lil snippet from the home game
    -Ashly Burch in the writer's room
    - Vax- Girl? Vex- Boy? Characters: Scanlan Scanlan Scanlan
    -Cutaway to Briarwoods (oh gosh, I'm just so excited)
    -Designs for Bad News and the List
    -Read through with the cast in their C1 seats (seriously, my heart you guys, I almost cried)
    -I love being drunk on Critical Role

    I am curious if Tiberius is still going to be a part of this. He is a part of the group in the beginning. Until later on with the evil dragon arc. (I don't want to do spoilers)

    The good news is that most of animation and voice acting can be done while working from home so it's possible there may be only a very small delay due to the virus.

    Sooo...when is the anti-hero story with Mighty Nein coming out? Wouldn't mind seeing a band of mercenaries; chop off a dudes hand and sabotage the power source of an entire city; accidentally become pirates etc. I kinda enjoy campaign 2 more cause of how much more chaotic the group is and the slow build up of the storyline from scratch.

    I hope they make multiple seasons of this. I have a special connection to Storytelling in general and when I found out about how rpgs work. I was like: yes. I love board games as well ( although dnd isn’t really a board game) this fits in perfectly. An RPG which is made into a cartoon. Oh my god. I love gravity falls, Rick and morty,the simpsons. I hope everybody who works on this project has as much fun as possible. I swear the legend of box machine is like a dream come true. Everything I love together: deep characters, comedy, fantastic storylines and art and just the energy of critical role. God do I love critical role!

    • PristineTX
      PristineTX Uukausi sitten

      They are still doing the Briarwood Arc. They are just adding a few introductory episodes before that, which they can do thanks to the huge amount of money they got from the Kickstarter support. The Kickstarter funding gave them enough for 10 episodes. Then when Amazon Prime Video came in, that got expanded even further. Now they have the commitment and funding to produce two seasons of 12 episodes each, for a total of 24 episodes, with the option for more, if the animated show gets a good audience.

    • PristineTX
      PristineTX Uukausi sitten

      Kickstarter backers will still get the first season for free, and get to watch it first. Amazon Prime is also adding two extra episodes to the first season, for 12 episodes total. If you backed the Kickstarter, you won't have to worry about paying for Amazon Prime Video until Season Two.

    The first claim is incorrect. Record of the Lodoss War was an RPG campaign that was adapted into an animated show.
    Does not diminish what the animators are doing. Just giving props to one of the grand daddies of TTRPG adaptations.
