Role-playing game web series hosting
Mercer is the Dungeon Master in the web series Critical Role, which was previously associated with Geek & Sundry, where he leads several other voice actors through a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. Mercer's work as Dungeon Master has led to the development of two campaign books being published in his world of Exandria. The first is the Critical Role: Tal'Dorei Campaign Setting published through Green Ronin Publishing. The second is the Explorer's Guide to Wildemount published through Wizards of the Coast, thus making Exandria an official Dungeons and Dragons campaign setting.
In 2016, Mercer served as the Dungeon Master for Force Grey: Giant Hunters, which ran for 2 seasons.
In 2017, Mercer was the Dungeon Master for the Nerdist show CelebriD&D, which puts D&D-playing celebrities into a small, mini-campaign where they are paired with role-players.
Mercer married Critical Role co-star Marisha Ray in 2017.
