Popular streaming web series Critical Role will air an Elden Ring themed D&D one-shot next week.
Since beginning its third major campaign in January, Critical Role takes the last week of every month off from the show. This is, functionally, designed to give its cast a bit of breathing room and help avoid creative burnout. But that does leave a gap in its schedule. Into that gap steps interstitial programming like next week’s Elden Ring D&D episode.
Though the stream is sponsored by Bandai Namco, the Elden Ring one-shot will presumably use the D&D 5e ruleset the show prefers rather than the officially licensed Dark Souls RPG. The game will be run by CR game master Matthew Mercer. Players will include regular cast members Marisha Ray and Sam Riegel, with Into the Motherlands‘ Krystina Arielle, Dimension 20‘s Brennan Lee Mulligan, and Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. by Night‘s Alexander Ward.
