Previously on Critical Role Edit

"The group of intrepid adventurers known as Vox Machina have been making their way through their quest to take down the Chroma Conclave, a group of chromatic dragons who have been terrorizing the countryside of Tal'Dorei under the rule of Thordak the Cinder King—a great, powerful, and seemingly elementally-charged ancient red dragon—who sits in the center of Emon.

"After gathering the rest of the artifacts [the party] had been seeking, called the Vestiges of the Divergence—the last one being found in the City of Brass upon the Fire Elemental Plane—[they] traveled back to Fort Daxio, a northern fort north of Emon, where [they] were planning a trap of some kind for Thordak.

"Upon arriving with two charges of [theirs]—two previously enslaved celestial-blooded boys that [they] found in the City of Brass—[they] all traveled across the planes with the help of Keyleth, back to Fort Daxio, to find the landscape scarred with recent flame and apparently a battle raging at the outer gate."
