This is gonna increase awareness of PbtA/FitD games if the Critical Role house system is basically a version of it.Looks like CR has dropped a sneak peek of their new system. Word is, it's a variant of Bladesnin the Dark? Which, if true, I think is actually really cool. Has real "gateway" potential, IMO.
If they are decent people, they'll acknowledge the FitD influences.
WotC will definately be looking for a streaming show to replace the cross-promotion from Critical Role, because at the moment the current 'D&D Culture' encompasses Critical Role as a big part of their world - Vox Machina and Honor Amongst Thieves kinda feel they are almost catching the same fish in the same net, but that net could have holes in it soon.
This may also be a big game of chicken that Critical Role is playing with WotC, but I doubt it after the OGL fiasco was partially aimed at getting a cut from Critical Role's success.
It's amusing, even if it has zero impact on my own gaming group
