As Vex’s inspired Oracle Arrow revealed in Episode 97, Delilah Briarwood’s handiwork opened a window into the Shadowfell, also known as the Plane of Shadow. Delilah’s ritual was to advance the goals of the god wannabe, Vecna (who has not yet ascended to godhood in this world). Delilah’s return in Episode 100 has prompted Vox Machina to give chase into the Shadowfell, so let’s take a look about what all we know about the Shadowfell and The Whispered One. Before we begin, please remember that the Shadowfell and Vecna from any published material—5e DMG, previous lore, etc., may have similarities and differences from those in Critical Role. This summary is a combination of what we know from previous episodes, Matt’s descriptions in Episode 101, the DMG, and the MM.
