Yeah, you’ve seen me talking about Critical Role a fair bit recently, so I’m sure you expected this. I have two obsessions currently, and I’ll talk about them! Critical Role is a great franchise to get into for fantasy lovers. There are cartoon series, comics, and novels, plus you can listen to the full campaigns in podcast form or watch the videos.
When I was younger, I was one of those people guilty of thinking DnD was lame. Did I roleplay? Yes. But I considered my type of rp so different as it didn’t include dice and was a little less limited. Yeah, I know that’s dumb, but I was a teenager. Since then, I’ve stumbled across the podcast Spellcheck DnD, where a bunch of YA authors played DnD together. I enjoyed listening to it and decided to check out Critical Role after. It took a few tries for me to get into it, but now I have, I wish I’d gotten into it earlier. Mostly so it wouldn’t be taking me so long to catch up.

It’s been a while since I’ve spoken about roleplay, and that’s mostly down to the fact that it’s not something I do much anymore. Evenings that used to be spent on my laptop have now become evenings in bed with a book. Most of the friends I have who I want to rp with don’t have much time or inspiration, so it’s kind of dwindled for now. That’s okay though, and it’s something that I do hope to get back to in the future.
But recently, I’ve gotten into Critical Role, and it’s making me think about rp again. I definitely want to try DnD sometime. I’d even like to try DMing a campaign one day. I already have a world I’d like to set it in of my own making. I also want to get back into my typical form of online rp. But the fact I’m listening to an rp, in general, isn’t why I’m interested again. I’ve become obsessed with these stories and characters, and that’s what I’m thinking about.

I’m back today with another book tag! I actually quite like coming up with these, and it’s fun to see other people do them. So I thought I’d pull another one together for a break between the many reviews I’m posting!
I’ve talked about roleplay a few times before, but DnD and tabletop gaming isn’t something I’ve tried yet. But I enjoyed the podcast Spellcheck DnD enough that I’ve tried checking out some other groups playing it. Critical Role is one of the biggest of these fandoms, if not the biggest. I’d always struggled to get into their games in the past until I got to campaign 3 and Bells Hells. Something about this group and their story has grabbed me, and now I’m more than a little obsessed.
With today’s tag, I’m going to be listing all the members so far of the chaotic Hells Bells and giving you prompts relating to them!
