    GEEK & SUNDRY PARTNERS WITH GREEN RONIN TO CREATE RPG BOOKS BASED ON ITS GROUNDBREAKING SHOW – CRITICAL ROLE
    New Line of Sourcebooks To Be Written By The Show’s Creator and Star Matthew Mercer
    August 8, 2016—SEATTLE, WA: Green Ronin Publishing announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement with Geek & Sundry to release roleplaying game sourcebooks based on Critical Role, the weekly web series in which eight renowned voice actors come together for an ongoing Dungeons & Dragons game. The books, which will be written by Critical Role creator and Game Master Matthew Mercer, will bring readers into his world of Exandria. The announcement was made by Chris Pramas, president of Green Ronin and Ryan Copple, General Manager of Geek & Sundry.

    Critical Role has excited many new fans about the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Each week, the show attracts hundreds of thousands of viewers, who watch it both live and recorded. Overall, Critical Role has garnered over 50 million views since its launch in March 2015. The cast includes Mercer, Travis Willingham, Marisha Ray, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson (Blindspot), Sam Riegel, Liam O’Brien, and Laura Bailey. Additionally, the show has attracted quite a few celebrities who have joined the cast as special guests including Chris Hardwick, Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, and Phil Lamarr, to name a few.

    “Watch even one episode of Critical Role and you can see that Matthew has developed a rich setting for his campaign,” said Green Ronin President Chris Pramas. “We are delighted to be able to bring the world of Exandria to RPG fans and doubly so that he will be writing the books himself.”

    “The request I get most often is if I’d be interested in releasing my world to everyone, allowing them to set their own home games in a detailed Exandria,” said Mercer. “I am so happy to be able to finally say yes! I’ve put so much of myself into Exandra and Tal’Dorei these past years, and am so excited and proud to be working with Green Ronin to bring Exandria to our community and the gaming community at large!”

    Work has already begun on the first book, Critical Role: Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting, which explores the main featured continent of the world of Exandria. It is scheduled for release in Spring of 2017. All books in the series will use the Fifth Edition rules.

    “Green Ronin Publishing has been an incredible collaborator with Geek & Sundry,” said Felicia Day, actress, writer, producer, and founder of Geek & Sundry. “Last year, we worked together to bring Wil and Ryan Wheaton’s world to life in both the series and adventure book of Titansgrave. With the growing demand for fans to explore the world of Critical Role we knew they were the perfect partner. With only one question left in our minds, to borrow from the Critter community, ‘Is it Spring Yet?’”

    More information and previews for the Critical Role RPG sourcebooks will appear on www.greenronin.com in the coming months.

    I am all sort of excited at seeing Green Ronin start to delve into 5e game material.

    My curiosity is this: Will Green Ronin be expanding their 5e material to include the Advanced Bestiary for 5e?

    When we announced pre-orders for it. Follow Green Ronin on Facebook. I'm pretty sure it will be widely announced ( Including on the r/criticalrole ) when pre-orders go live.
