Created with our friends at Dark Horse Comics, Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins Volume 3 brings you a beautifully illustrated tale from the campaign of Vox Machina prior to the show, involving misadventures during the Winter’s Crest Festival!
This limited edition hardcover is exclusive to the Critical Role online shops and features the same thrilling 152 pages of story-content as the trade paperback, along with extras including a sketchbook section featuring characters and cover art! This edition features a rich blue faux leather book and slipcase with an intricate Vox Machina monogram design, burnished and stamped with holographic foil. The slipcase houses the book itself as well as a cloth portfolio containing a commemorative lithograph print by Alex Monik.
In this volume, Vox Machina enjoys a week in Westruun’s lap of luxury leading up to the Winter’s Crest Festival. But that costs coin, which has a bad habit of running out, so they join an underground fighting ring and bash their way to cash. Unfortunately, their ring-fighting turns out to be just a warm-up for a cold reality when a mysterious attack on Winter’s Crest festivities leaves the whole town magically frozen—including one of their own. Vox Machina will have to save the day again, against a much bigger foe than they first realized!
