Now that Critical Role has wrapped for the year, I’ve been looking back on the last nine months and just marveling at it all. Our time at the table every week has been a massive pleasure for me, and I can’t tell you how much I look forward to my time with Matt and company. But the community that has sprung up around the show has become just as pleasurable an aspect of this ride as the game itself. You guys are simply amazing, and I say that with the utmost sincerity. Thank you. All of you. From the bottom of my icosahedron shaped heart.
If I may, though, I’d like to take moment here at the end of 2015 to specifically thank all the many artists in our extended family. I don’t know what karmic die-roll we critted on, but this show has the most avid and insanely talented pack of creators surrounding it, on this plain or any other. I have gotten to know many of you over the course of the year, grown familiar with the unique style of your work, along with your individual personalities. It’s been a joy, week after week.
It’s Christmas time, and I’m feeling pretty grateful for you lot. If I reached out to you about this surprise gallery, it’s because you impressed me with your talent, your passion, and your heart during the last year. Thank you so, so much for holding the mirror up to our game and reflecting images of our world back at us. Know that we appreciate you, and every piece of art you send our way.
So the happiest of holidays to you all, and a great big Less-Than-3. Rest up, get your spells ready, and organize your bag of holding, cuz it’ll be January 7th before you know it.
Is it Thursday yet?
P.S. Would a couple of you go tell the cast about this gallery, because I didn’t tell ‘em squat. (stealth check)
