I am absolutely jazzed that all of the Charisma-based casters in this party are not what most people would traditionally consider “charismatic”
Dorian is chronically nervous, Imogen gets overwhelmed, and Laudna is Like That (for which we love her)
But here’s the thing: all of them are still charming
Dorian is cute, Imogen is lovable, Laudna is endearing
So it’s like their Charisma scores stem not from being smooth talkers all the time, not from being commanding or unflappable, but quite simply from being likable
The bard, sorceror, and sorlock of this team fuel their magic with pure, unadulterated adorkableness, and isn’t that just fantastic?

Question for critters!
So I’m doing a Human!Modern!College!AU for campaign three and I’m stuck with what major Ashton would be.
For a little background:
Imogen is a nursing student (because I made the joke on twitter that she’s Bertrand’s caretaker at the nursing home and I’m committing to the bit).
Dorian is a theatre kid ofc, with a minor in music!
Fearne studies horticulture.
Laudna is double-majoring in creative writing and art because she wants to write and illustrate children’s books!
(They all end up very creepy and eerie— think Coraline— but she can’t figure out why everyone says that because she’s just trying to write fantasy adventure!)
I like the vibes of Orym being either a history major… OR a writing and publishing major who keeps ending up paired up with the Accidental Horror Queen Laudna in every creative writing class he’s in.
FCG is a big ole question mark for whether I’ll even make him human or not, but he’d be a social work major.
But I can’t figure out Ashton! Someone suggested art, and I was thinking if I make FCG a robot, I could have Ashton be his creator and he’d be in robotics.

I’m fine, and it’s a lie. Besides the damn gashes in my chest and feeling like I’m still covered in that gross stuff, even after all the prestidigitation, I’m—fine.
Repetition doesn’t come with conviction.
Darling, Laudna presses after a beat, “please don’t try to bullshit me when your brain is on my brain.”
After the skirmish at Dugger's home in the Viduun-Devaar, Imogen has lingering concerns. Post-episode C3E05.

Hello! I'm still stuck on episode 1 so no spoilers pls, but can I request this scenario:
Ashton Greymoore, Laudna and Imogen, and Bertrand with a child who's too excited about adventuring, so the characters have to be extremely protective when said child tries to do something like pet an owlbear or play with living furniture?
Characters Keeping Their Child From Doing Dumb Stuff
FANDOM: Critical Role
Character(s): Ashton Greymoore, Laudna, Imogen, Bertrand Bell
Type of Request: Headcanons
Word Count: 468
Note(s): Got it, I'll hold back my bad jokes just so I don't accidentally ruin things for you! Okay but parental characters are adorable so I'll love doing this for you!
I mean Ashton definitely isn't a good influence on you. They're probably the reason you're so obsessed with adventure.
I can see him acting like he doesn't care what you do. Like telling you to go pet a bear and see what happens but when you start to go he's just, "Aw shit." And has to save you
Might get a child leash and make Letters take care of you. Ashton doesn't have the energy to constantly keep you out of trouble.
He constantly threatens to tie you to a chair or something if you keep trying to jump at dangerous things. He does it and get paid, you're a tiny child that gets nothing for doing dumb shit.
Curses himself when you try to go on adventures yourself because this is 100% his fault, not that he’d ever admit it.
I mean he always tells you his grandiose stories about adventure and the beasts that he’s slain so he should’ve known it would make you want to achieve these feats yourself.
Bertrand is more of a “you know what, go ahead and try it” in hopes that you learn from your mistakes.
He’ll come in to help you out of trouble or if it’s something particularly dangerous then he’ll stop you, but mostly it’s just letting you do dumb shit and then realizing how stupid it was.
“No no! Don’t do that!” She is such a mother hen when she sees you starting to wander off. She doesn’t stop you right away, wanting to see where you’re going, but she quickly stops you.
Has absolutely used her detect thoughts to listen in so she knows when you’re thinking of going off and doing something dumb.
To most she’s a sweet southern belle, but she will absolutely have some words for you if you tried to do stupid things. She cares about you, you’re her kid, so why are you going off and trying to get yourself killed?
You want to pet an owlbear? She’ll buy you a toy, pet that all you like. You want to play with the furniture that tried to kill her? Go play with a stick.
Laudna has a hand on your shoulder most of the time to keep you from running off. She knows the mischievous nature that you got from her.
Of course, if you want to do something small like fight a chair then she’ll let you. Give that chair hell! Laudna would go in and save you, but she’ll let you realize how dumb your idea was first.
Your a kid, she understands that your attention span is minimal. She’ll gladly throw a puppet show for you! That should keep you entertained.
Might buy you a puppet. Hopefully it’ll keep your attention. She thanks it was a good idea.
