So what’s it about?

Veth Brenatto doesn’t have an exciting life, but she likes it that way. Unlike her childhood, it’s safe. Predictable. And her husband and son love her as fiercely as she loves them. But Veth’s cozy existence is turned on its head when she and her family are captured by raiders. In order to save them, Veth will commit an atrocity that will sever her from all that she loves––maybe forever––and lead her to become Nott the Brave of the Mighty Nein.

Praise for Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins:

Vox Machina Origins is a triple-threat treat to fans new, old, and uninitiated. Awesome artwork = check. Superb storytelling = check. Humour, heart, and a heavy right hook of action = check, check, check.”–Fantasy Hive

“Those who are versed in the different mannerisms and personalities of Vox Machina will be thoroughly impressed in how they are captured in Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins. From Scanlan’s vicious mockery and high sex drive to Keyleth’s naivety to Vex’ahila always looking for the best deal, it is presented brilliantly through the writing of Jody Houser and the art from Olivia Samson.”–butwhytho
