"Game Masters of Exandria Roundtable" (Sx69) is a special episode produced by Critical Role.

  • Aabria: I just wanted to add a bunch of vowels. That's all, that's it.
    Matt: I mean, that's honestly the trick. Add vowels, add apostrophes. Make it look fancy.
    Brennan: You're not going to get a more solid GM tip than throw an apostrophe in there.[1]
  • Matt: (about Exandria) As it took on a life of its own, nothing has been more fun and more exciting than watching it grow beyond me. I feel like as a person who's not a parent, this is the closest thing I have to a child, is this world. And watching other people become family to it as well, and adding and developing it in their own way, it's really special.[2]
  • Brennan: I got three months between seasons, okay? Welcome to Biggityburg. Here we go. It's the new town. This is the new season.
    Aabria: Here's the problem. The only thing my brain's going to remember from all of that is Biggityburg.
    Matt: I think it's the ruins of Avalir in the Shattered Teeth, Biggityburg.
    Aabria: Go home, play that in your worlds and tag Brennan on Twitter when you do it.
    Brennan: Let me know how it goes in Biggityburg, #Biggityburg.[3]
  • Brennan: It's okay to fucking snack, all right? Some of us sweat from the moment we wake up to the moment we go to sleep. Some of our bodies are betraying us constantly. Would I have chosen this paper white, fur covered, constantly sweating body? No, I wouldn't have! Does it require constant almonds? Yes! Almonds all the time! Okay? And I'm not gonna apologize because these two fucking elevated beings, these two hovering-- What are the pre-Skeksis, pre-mystic light beings from The Dark Crystal? Oh god! You two! Some of us are pod people, okay? I'm a little poddling and I need to snack! If I could have another mouth in my back... The biggest obstacle in my GM-ing, all right, is that the same place I talk from is where the food needs to go![4]
