Today, Critical Role and Darrington Press are inviting players new and experienced to join in on the adventure with the updated and greatly expanded Tal’Dorei Campaign Setting Reborn sourcebook, now available at Darrington Press Guild stores (list here) and Critical Role shops (US, UK, CA, AU, and EU), and soon available at your favorite local hobby and gaming stores.
For the uninitiated, the land off Tal’Dorei, a continent within Exandria (the world created by Game Master Matthew Mercer and the cast of Critical Role), was first explored through the adventures of Critical Role’s first campaign, Vox Machina, and is brimming with epic stories of heroes and adventurers — and eagerly awaiting adventures of your own. The updated sourcebook was created by lead designers Matthew Mercer (Critical Role Game Master and Chief Creative Officer), Hannah Rose (Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount, The Wild Beyond the Witchlight, Mythic Odysseys of Theros), and James J. Haeck (Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount, Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus), with additional contributions provided by Critical Role founders Laura Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Liam O’Brien, Marisha Ray, Sam Riegel, and Travis Willingham; as well as John Stavropoulos (Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft, X-Card, Wizards of the Coast: Game Design Coach) and Aabria Iyengar (Exandria Unlimited, Misfits and Magic, Pirates of Salt Bay).
Taking place two decades following Vox Machina’s conclusion, this sourcebook outlines how Tal’Dorei has changed and progressed leading up to the start of Critical Role’s second campaign, The Mighty Nein. Soar on a skyship from the metropolis of Emon, home to the Tal’Dorei Council, to the distant haven of Whitestone; explore the lush wilderness in between, meeting monsters and wayward mages; and uncover magic items ranging from simple trinkets to the legendary Vestiges of Divergence. How will you shape the future of Tal’Dorei? The land’s fate is in your hands.
This art-filled tome contains everything needed to unlock the rich environment of Tal’Dorei and make it your own. Among its 280 pages, you’ll find:
- A guide to each major region of Tal’Dorei, with story hooks to fuel your campaign
- Expanded character options, including 9 subclasses and 5 backgrounds
- Magic items such as the Vestiges of Divergence, which are legendary artifacts that grow in power with their wielders
