HYPE: The Chronicles of Exandria Vol II: The Legend of Vox Machina is available now!

Written by on September 26, 2023

The Chronicles of Exandria Vol II: The Legend of Vox Machina is back in action as a refreshed Darrington Press release! Like the sold-out first printing, this art book collects some of our favorite creations by Critter artists from around the world, capturing the second half of the Vox Machina campaign in glorious detail, and in it you’ll also find 9 new pieces of artwork!

Pick up this art book today from Critical Role shops (US, UK, Canada, Australia, and EU) and Darrington Press Guild stores, or find it soon at other friendly local game stores.

Inside these large coffee table format pages, artwork from 100 Critter artists is arranged into chapters of the Vox Machina campaign, with in-world writing from Cobalt Soul archivists about each of these arcs. These pieces were curated and art directed by Lauryn Ipsum as well as our own Liam O’Brien and Taliesin Jaffe! All of the artists names and best places to find them are listed below in our artist directory—please join us in celebrating these excellent artists!

And don’t forget that this art book’s companion volume, The Chronicles of Exandria Vol I: The Tale of Vox Machina, was similarly refreshed and brought back into print earlier this year. We’re so happy that both volumes and their incredible artwork are back and available to you.
