Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina is Coming to Amazon!

Christmas came early this year for Critters around the world. Amazon seals the deal for a full two seasons of “Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina” the animated series![3]

Matthew Mercer and other members of the Critical Role cast have been teasing something huge for a while now. We’ve been hearing about it on their Twitch Stream and in their Tweets for weeks, but us critters have been left wondering what on Exandria could be such big news. Well today the beans were finally spilled!

In addition to the 10 episodes funded by the wonderful Critters who backed their Kickstarter, Amazon has ordered an a additional 14 episodes, for a total of 24 episodes across two seasons. At roughly 22 minutes planned per episode, we can expect nearly 9 hours of animated Vox Machina awesomeness.

While no official release date is set, if all goes well we can expect season 1 to drop in late 2020.

What does this mean for Backers of the Kickstarter?

According to Critical Role’s latest Update on Kickstarter, “Kickstarter backers … will still have an opportunity to watch the two-part special that kicks off the series before anyone else AND because you’re a backer, you’ll be able to access the first season for free.”[1].

The logistics are still being worked out but backers can rest assured that they will still be able to watch the first season without subscribing to Amazon Prime.

Originally there was only going to be 10 episodes in the series as funded by Kickstarter. Now that Amazon has signed this deal, they are essentially blustering the budget of season 1 to bring it up to 12 full episodes and covering the cost of season two entirely. That means backers have Amazon to thank for two completely free additional episodes. However, some backers have expressed concerns over the level of control Amazon might wield over the project at large.

Big dreams, Taliesin. Big dreams

Here is a magical moment for those Critters who have been following Critical Role since it’s early days:

Campaign 1, Episode 32 – Against the Tide of Bone. Originally aired on November 12th, 2015.

May your ship never stop sailing. Thank you Critical Role.

Welcome Adventurer!

So happy to see you stop by. Or perhaps… So happy to see you again! Yes. Welcome to the official website for Tactical Tokens. Token-style miniature alternatives for tabletop games like Dungeons and Dragons. Supplement and enhance your tabletop gaming sessions with quality custom game pieces hand made by us at Tactical Tokens. Now that the Kickstarter has run its course and we surpassed our goal reaching 152% funding, this is where all the magic will happen. This is the place to order the tokens you need to level up your tabletop gaming experience. Although some of our products are only available for pre-order. Look for the “preorder” tag on certain products.

So you’re here to acquire some tokens I see.

Let me show you how it’s done. Because we are only taking Pre-Orders at the moment, the process isn’t seamless… yet. But we’re getting there and improving everyday. Thank you for your patience.

Currently there are 3 products in our shop. And many more to come in the very near future. The products are listed below:

  • Build your Own Bundle – Just need a few tokens? Need an Ancient Red Dragon for your next session but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a miniature for it? With the Build your Own Bundle you can select the exact number tokens you need for your game. After picking the types of tokens you want and completing the order, we will reach out to you separately about picking the illustrations for the tokens. For now, you will have to wait until after the purchase to make your creature, character, and object illustration selections.
  • The Essential Bundle – Get the most calamity for your copper. This bundle includes all the tokens you might want to run your typical fantasy game session anytime, anywhere. This bundle includes 20 hero/character tokens and 27 of some of the most infamous monsters from Dungeons and Dragons. There are a few duplicate monsters, because we always need more Goblins to throw at the party. The total number of tokens are:
    • 20 Hero/Character 1″ tokens
    • 26 Small/Medium Creature 1″ tokens
    • 14 Large Creature 2″ tokens
    • 1 Huge Creature 3″ token
    • 1 Gargantuan Creature 4″ token
  • The True Ultimate Bundle – This bundle contains 1 of every Hero, Character, Creature, and Object token we have in our collection in their proper in-game size. This bundle includes 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″ tokens to represent creatures of all sizes from tiny all the way up to gargantuan. The total number of tokens are:
    • 1″ Tokens – 151
    • 2″ Tokens – 48
    • 3″ Tokens – 14
    • 4″ Tokens – 8
    • For a grand total of 221 unique tokens.

I’m a Backer on Kickstarter. Where are my tokens?

First of all, thank you so much for being a backer. You made this all possible. Next, I will be communicating with you exclusively through Kickstarter’s platform. Please make sure you’ve completed your backer surveys. That is key. If you’re unsure, just log into Kickstarter and you’ll instantly be prompted to fill out any pending surveys waiting for you, including the one I sent out for Tactical Tokens back on September 24th, 2018. We are still on schedule for delivering the initial round of rewards in December 2018. That was Step 1. Here are the other steps:

  • Step 2 – Pre-illustrated token selection. If you qualified to receive any additional pre-illustrated tokens I will be reaching out soon. We have built our own token selector from the ground up here on this site. So look out for that.
  • Step 3 – Upload your own art and images. This step is still in the works and won’t be released until pre-illustration selection is complete.
  • Step 4 – Stretch Goal and Additional Item Fulfillment. For this step I will be working on a more personal level with those who quality. Out of the 135 backers only a few of you increased pledges to receive additional items.
  • Step 5 – Followup and Confirmation. Shortly after Step 4 I’ll be following up with each and every backer to make sure I have everything correct.
  • Step 6 – Production Completion. As soon as all of the product is completed production for a particular backer I will be shipping the package out. This could be next week. This could be on December 15th. As soon as your reward is made, I’ll be sending it out.

I missed the Kickstarter. How can I order some tokens?

No worries! You’ve come to the right place. We are now accepting pre-orders for the products listed above. Similar to those who backed the Kickstarter after you complete your purchase, we will reach out to you about selecting the desired illustrations and sizes. Our operations will be a bit personal for the time being as we grow in these early days.

So whether you missed the Kickstarter or you just want some extra tokens, check out our shop.

NOTE: Pre-orders will be charged on the spot but will NOT be made and shipped until all rewards from the Kickstarter are fulfilled. At this point in time it looks like production on pre-orders will not begin until January 2019.

Thank you for all of your support and patience.

Sincerely,

 

Tactical Dave
