The Legend of Vox Machina: A Band of Eight Unlikely Heroes

The band of eight unlikely heroes was the first party of adventurers to rise against the Dungeon Master in D&D. They quickly became the most powerful group in all of creation, and for a time, brought peace to an otherwise chaotic multiverse. Though their numbers have dwindled now into just a few members, their legend is still told by bards and sages in taverns across time and space. Could you be one of those heroes?

It’s hard to imagine how much easier it can possibly be! Think back on your gaming past- you might remember that developer behind your favourite console games or perhaps a memorable long story mission on your favourite MMO. Then have your mind blown away by this Kickstarter backer-exclusive miniature pack featuring a character from each Era!

Over the course of their adventures, Vox Machina encountered many powerful foes in search of treasure and magical artefacts. These foes left behind powerful magic items to aid future heroes.

What is the story behind Vox Machina’s name and how did it come about?

The story behind Vox Machina is the story of creating our own universe for our own games. We started with a basic D&D campaign and then we took over the world and all its grand stories. With Vox Machina, we’ve included the characters and stories on top of the D&D world that we’ve always wanted to see, but could never get in a more traditional game . It’s a blending of our love of D&D with some other things we love from comics and games.

How did you come up with the name “Vox Machina” for your group?

The legend goes that we had tried several names for our team early on in our D&D game. We were stuck on a Monday night when Matt left for his morning shift at work, so Travis decided to make a joke about naming the new party “Vox Machinima. That led to a long discussion about how we could integrate our love of video games into Dungeons and Dragons. From there, the others in the group just kept coming up with more and more fun suggestions until we ended up with a name that seems to fit us better than any other we’ve ever attempted.

Who are some of your favourite characters in The Legend of Vox Machina?

My favourite characters are Vax and Vex both because they’re the toughest. But if I had to choose one, it would be Scanlan. You see, Scanlan is not your typical ranger. He’s a bard! He’s a jack of all trades and master of none, but that makes him all the more entertaining. Scanlan’s one of the first characters we created for Vox Machina and one of the most popular characters in D&D since then.

Who are some other characters in The Legend of Vox Machina?

I don’t know if I could pick just a few from this list! When we were first sketching out Vox Machina, we had ideas for over 100 different characters (we planned on taking our time with this game). But as we took one character idea and put it into play-testing, it turned into another character idea.
