Exandria Unlimited: Calamity Q&A With Lou Wilson
Written by Nicole on June 2, 2022
Hi Critters! Today is our second episode of Exandria Unlimited: Calamity and we are so excited to continue this adventure!
With so many new storytellers in this special mini-series, we thought it would be fun to share a little more about our Calamity Cast with a Q&A! HOWEVER, to make it a little more spicy, we made our Q&A “End of the World” themed to match the Calamity vibe.
Each week during Calamity, check back here at critrole.com to learn more about these heroic characters and the cast bringing this story to life!
This third Q&A will be from the talented and hilarious Lou Wilson!
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your character in Exandria Unlimited: Calamity.
Hi! My name is Lou Wilson, you might recognize me from Dimension 20, Jimmy Kimmel Live, or other bits of film and television. If you don’t recognize me, you’re in luck! You’re getting in at a good time.
For EXU:Calamity, I’ll be playing Nydas Okiro: Guildmaster of The Golden Scythe. Nydas is a former pirate captain, who dreamt of a life in Avalir. Since arriving, he’s climbed the Scythe’s ladder to emerge as leader of the city’s premier mercantile and financial institution. Mechanically he’s a sorcerer/bard.
Let’s imagine that some sort of unavoidable disaster is on the brink, you’ve found some sort of way to accept it and start planning for the absolute best event of your life. What would you do and who would accompany you?
Easy. I’m staying at some kind of sprawling chalet at the foot of the Himalayas. Over the course of the last week of existence, I’ve got a helicopter touching down with a world class chef and a spiritual leader every morning. Every night we have the greatest meal of our lives, and afterward we get absolutely flapjack’d on shrooms and envision what death might be like. Post disaster, whoever was closest gets 50 dollars worth of Heaven gold.
In your opinion, what is the most iconic fictional death in popular media?
Jack from Titanic. In part, because it didn’t have to be this way. MOVE OVER ROSE! THERE’S ENOUGH DOOR FOR EVERYBODY.
Do you have a bucket list? If so, tell us all about it.
No, Not really. I don’t know if this is rude to say, but I feel like your bucket list becomes more reasonable with age. Like by the time I’m 50, I bet it’ll be things like “See the Northern Lights,” but right now, if you’re asking me what I’d want to do before I die, I’d be shooting for the moon: I want to be the guy who finds Bigfoot. I want to befriend a velociraptor like Chris Pratt in that Dinosaur Movie. Dream big baby!
What do you want people to remember you for?
First off, thanks to the people who remembered me. There’s a lot you could do with that brain space, and it means alot that you’d give it to me. I don’t know man, I guess that I cared. That the people around me mattered, and that in my actions, I communicated that to them. That, and that I found fucking Bigfoot. We became boys. And then started an independent craft brewery together.
