The resurgence of tabletop Role-playing Games, and their explosion into new media, which the authors have participated in and enjoyed, invites the reader to consider their place in redefining remix culture in the twenty-first century. As scholars and optimists, the authors hold out hope that remix, as modeled by Critical Role, will offer the reader a way to bridge political divisions, to collaborate in policy in the real world in the same way that the people collaborate in their fantasy medieval campaigns. Navas defines a regenerative remix as a recombination of content and form that opens the space for Remix to become a specific discourse intimately linked with new media culture. There is something powerful about differentiating remixes generated by algorithms from remixes generated by the human hand. Critical Role embodies the constant change through the evolution over the campaign and across platforms.
