Critical Role recently celebrated their 7-year anniversary and with it came a slew of exciting new content announcements including a new Exandria Unlimited adventure and the highly anticipated announcement of the new talk show that will replace Talks Machina. Critical Role has incorporated elements of EXU into Campaign 3 with Liam O’Brien, Ashley Johnson, and Robbie Daymond bringing their EXU characters Orym, Fearne Calloway, and Dorian Storm into the main campaign.
However, when Dorian’s brother got into some trouble they were forced to flee Marquet leaving Dorian’s friends, Bells Hells, behind. Now, Critters have the chance to see the next part of their story as Dorian and his bother meet up with the rest of the Crown Keepers in Exandria Unlimited: Kymal.
EXANDRIA UNLIMITED: KYMAL 2 PART ADVENTURE
Fleeing from Marquet to Tal’Dorei with his brother, Dorian Storm (Robbie Daymond) returns to his friends, The Crown Keepers, and attempts to lay low in the seedy casino town of Kymal, which naturally leads to the crew attempting a casino heist…
Exandria Unlimited: Kymal will see the return of Robbie Daymond as Dorian Storm, Matthew Mercer as Dariax, Aimee Carrero as Opal, Anjali Bhimani as Fy’ra Rai and Aabria Iyengar will return as Game Master to guide this chaotic crew through a new adventure. Exandria Unlimited: Kymal will also introduce a new character into the mix played by Erica Lindbeck.

Although it was sad to see Robbie leave Campaign 3, it will be exciting to see Dorian Storm’s story continue along with the other Crown Keepers and GM Aabria Iyengar in a whole new adventure which is sure to be filled with chaos and hijinks. Critical Role has also revealed their new talk show 4-Sided Dive which replaces Talks Machina with a new format and release schedule.
NEW CRITICAL ROLE TALK SHOW 4-SIDED DIVE
Lore, insight, curiosity, and chaos… Dive into Critical Role’s monthly talk show! 4-Sided Dive features a roundtable discussion between four guests with a signature Critical Role twist. At the top of each episode, guests let the roll of the dice decide who will take on the role of Tavern Keeper (a sort of quasi-host?) and thus steer the show with absolutely no preparation. In addition to discussing the campaign and characters, party games and chaos will be sprinkled in. Fan questions will also be pulled from the Tower of Inquiry, a “Chenga” tower that yields serious consequences when it all comes crashing down.

Critters can submit evergreen questions about Campaign 3 at critrole.com/tower. The debut episode of 4-Sided Dive will feature Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Travis Willingham, and Robbie Daymond as the inaugural guests. The new format for Critical Role’s talk show is primed for hilarity and chaos as well as intriguing insights into the new Campaign.
