Katherine Pierce.

Another campaign closes, and another one awaits.

Critical Role recently wrapped up their second campaign, and I don't have much to say about it, honestly. I sort of stopped watching midway through, since I was falling behind anyway (as you do) and I realized that I just wasn't motivated enough to watch the episodes fully. I eventually ended up watching highlights that are posted on YouTube to get the gist of what was happening. But as a whole, I wasn't emotionally invested with C2 as I was with C1, which was disappointing because I wanted to be but, well, you can't force a connection when there isn't one. And that's not to say that the second campaign was bad or anything, it just wasn't for me, and that's okay! Just because it wasn't my cup of tea doesn't mean it can't be someone else's.

My main issue was mostly with the fandom community, which that's a whole separate rant altogether because boy do I have Opinions on that matter. But I do think that kind of bled into my disinterest with C2 just a little bit, which is sad because you shouldn't let the misbehaviors and entitlement of a fandom ruin the possible enjoyment you have with something. Which is why I'll still be checking out C3 whenever it premieres, I'll just be separating myself from the fandom.

However, I have to say I'm more excited about The Legend of Vox Machina and the most recently announced projects, including the Vox Machina versus The Mighty Nein special one-shot!
