Premise[edit | edit source]

The series follows six mercenaries who have been rejected from the Slayer's Take. They instead form their own adventuring party, The Re-Slayer's Take, to kill creatures that have returned from the dead throughout Issylra and fight The Timberblight and its undead army.[1][2]

It is an audio actual play podcast intended for an all-ages demographic. Episodes are edited, rather than live-to-tape like Critical Role.[1][2]

The series will also feature guest players, including Christian Navarro, Sam Riegel, and Dominic Monaghan.[2]

Many non-player characters are also voiced by guest actors, including Hannah Fagerbakke, Matthew McCollum, and Dylan McCollum.

Episodes and production[edit | edit source]

Nick Williams and George Primavera first met Critical Role cast in February 2020, and then sometime later they were approached again by Sam Riegel who wanted to create something in Exandria specifically for his kids, whom he frequently used to retell the events of the main Critical Role campaigns episodes without the chilling details and crude jokes[4].

The Re-Slayer's Take premiered on May 20, 2024 with its first episode on podcast networks and its first three episodes on Beacon. Following episodes premiere on Beacon two weeks ahead of their regular release and without ads.[1]
