About This Quiz

For many of us, when our birthdays roll around, we think about something special we would like to do to treat ourselves. And if you're Liam O'Brien, it's no different. For one of his birthdays, he asked his buddy Matt Mercer to create a one-off Pathfinder session. And that was when what we know as "Critical Role" was born. What a cool birthday idea, right? And for us critters, it is the gift that keeps on giving! 

Sure, there are dozens of quizzes out there asking which of the characters of "Critical Role" you should play, but what about the cast? With so much talent in the room, it is easy to spot someone to identify with. Perhaps you're like Matt Mercer, an incredibly talented storyteller who brings such an intense flavor to the table that we can only wish our DMs could take a little from him. Or maybe you're more like Sam Riegel, someone who keeps gameplay light and provides a good chuckle to the players around him.

In any case, we are certain we can figure out which castmate from "Critical Role" would be your bestie. And after you're done taking this quiz, you can ask yourself, "Is it Thursday yet?"
