Lochlan

Hi everyone! My name is Lochlan, the second half of Critter Roles! I love crafting, making props, playing tabletop games, and generally making a geeky nuisance of myself. Critter Roles is an excellent way to harness some of my creative chaos, and I love it!

Why Critter Roles?

So, why "Critter Roles"? When I first started to play D&D, I started to watch Critical Role - like I think a lot of us have. I was so struck by the community of the players, the community of the fans, and all of the learning and creativity and art that went into just making this wonderful, fun environment for everyone. Then I started to think about what D&D has meant to me: given me more confidence, a great community of friends, and even an extended community in the ways I can connect with people.

Then I started to think about starting a business! So, I was thinking about what to name it and I was thinking about that term "Critter" - the fans of Critical Role. I thought about all of the things that D&D has given me and then what my role is in this community that I am now a part of. So I took both of those terms!

For me, Critter Roles is what I can give back to the geeky community and how my art and my creativity can give back to this wonderful, amazing body of people we have here. So, I hope you that you love this space and our creations, and that we can be a very positive part of this community that I love!

Chela's Favourite Things!

  • Critters: I have two cats, their names are Maple and Syrup. But, I do change their names whenever I want - so right now their names are actually Bean and Loaf.
  • Video Games: I have the most amount of hours in Skyrim, but I have the longest love for Harvest Moon - shoutout to Stardew Valley.
  • RPG Playstyle: I have a really hard time playing a character who doesn't have range.
  • Harry Potter House: I'm told I'm a Hufflepuff, but I kind of think I'm a Ravenclaw.
  • Lord of the Rings Character: The best characters are obviously Aragorn or Pippin.
  • Best Comic Book Character: Loki. He is mischief and chaos.
  • Last but not least, I love dragons.

Lochlan's Favourite Things!

  • Critters: I, too, have two cats. They enjoy sassing me at every given opportunity (they are the same cats that Chela has, to be clear).
  • Video Games: I like games a lot--I am not good at them. I like indie games with cool art and gameplay, as well as basically anything that lets me customize a character or build a base.
  • RPG Playstyle: I am a Dungeon Master at heart, and I like to play at 110%. My characters are wacky and vibrant (like my games).
  • Harry Potter House: Ravenclaw pride!
  • Lord of the Rings Character: Boromir is my boy and the best character.
  • Best Comic Book Character: Thor is king, baby.
  • Last but not least, I also love dragons.
