Wilmet Wizcrack was a famous male gnome archaeologist. He was first mentioned in Critical Role: Tal'Dorei Campaign Setting in the adventure "Shadows of the Past". So far, he has not appeared nor been mentioned onstream.


In 812 PD, while staying at an inn one night in the Umbra Hills in Tal'Dorei, he died in his room. His body was found with no signs of physical assault but his skin was drawn tight against his bones and his muscles were atrophied. Investigation of his room revealed no presence of an assailant, but did reveal the presence of many relics, including a +1 longsword with "Trist Drassig" inscribed on the blade.[1]

The day after his death, Wizcrack turned into a shadow.[1]
