"The Siege of Emon" (1x78) is the ninth episode of the sixth chapter of Critical Role. Having gathered their allies, Vox Machina heads for the center of Emon to begin the final battle against Thordak the Cinder King.

Synopsis Edit

Pre-Show Edit

Announcements Edit

Previously on Critical Role Edit

"Our fantastic band of adventurers, Vox Machina, have been battling against the Chroma Conclave, a collection of evil, dangerous, chromatic dragons led by Thordak the Cinder King, who has been reigning over their home city of Emon for quite some time, terrorizing the community and apparently slowly undergoing a change based on the elemental stone that is embedded in his body that once locked him in the Plane of Fire.

"They've defeated most of the dragons and allied with one of the only remaining members: Raishan, the green dragon. They have since acquired a number of allies, made their way to the Fire Plane, the City of Brass, and returned to find Fort Daxio under attack. They managed to defend it, saved a few friends, and returned to Whitestone. It seems like everything is gearing itself towards the final conflict in Emon with Thordak the Cinder King.

"Last we left off, they were meeting underneath Whitestone at the Ziggurat with the current-standing council; the war council of both Whitestone and this entire endeavor. With multiple armies to converge on Emon in the coming days, now is their time to relax and plan their next moves.
