MILWAUKIE, Ore., (January 18, 2024)— The gang is back and on a mission in Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins IV!

“I’m excited to head back to Exandria and continue the adventure alongside Vox Machina,” said Houser. “The stakes have never been higher, so we’ll see if splitting the party was a good idea…”
