Critical Role's newest series serves as an interesting departure from the show's previous full-length campaign. Earlier today, Critical Role announced Exandria Unlimited, a new eight episode series featuring a mix of veteran cast and new players. As its name suggests, Exandria Unlimited is set in Exandria and is considered canon within the Critical Role timeline, but has several key differences from past multi-episode shows. For one, the show features brand new characters played by Matthew Mercer, Liam O'Brien, Ashley Johnson, Aimee Carrero and Robbie Daymond. Additionally, the show features Aabria Iyengar as the Game Master, marking the first time Critical Role has had someone besides Mercer run a "canon" series of games.
