24 hours of D&D charity livestream

I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen the post on Wizards of the Coast’s D&D page about this years 24 hour charity live stream event (if you haven’t, then check here), similar to last year they’re raising money for the Extra Life charity and fans can get involved by donating to the either the players or DM to earn their favourites some in-game bonuses while giving to a great cause.

This year they’ve also made it possible for gamers to join in with their own games all the way up to the end of the year. So that’s what some of us are doing.


I am going to run one of my all time favourite adventures, I6 Ravenloft, using the new 5th edition D&D rules via our own live stream during the Christmas break (27th – 28th December).

You can donate to the players to help them gain some pre-game and in-game bonuses via their donation pages – such things as giving them extra gold to purchase equipment, give them a level boost, grant them a magic item, or even affect their character’s choice of race, class or name.

or you can make their characters lives that little harder (and possibly shorter) by donating on my page and giving the bad guys some bonuses, or even naming several of the npc’s they’ll be meeting along the way.

The only rule we have set ourselves is that we can’t donate to ourselves to gain the bonuses, so we need you to dig deep and donate to this great cause – not only will you be helping sick children but you’ll also be making our game a little different and we’ll be sure to give you a shout out during the broadcast.


Hopefully if this goes well we shall run another similar event around Easter for a UK based charity.
