Woo! Year 4 of the D&D Extra Life 24 hour stream! It's been a crazy ride, and I'm happy to be aboard. Over the years, we've raised over $220,000 thanks to you: our families, our friends, and our fans. All of this money has gone directly to help Children's Hospitals. My donations will, and have always, gone to Seattle Children's Hospitalâ?an organization that I'm excited to help. These donations are tax deductible, and in some cases are able to be matched by employers.
This year, I get to be on the other side of the Dungeon Master screen, and y'all can help me! We'll be playing on the Wizards of the Coast Twitch channel (link as we get closer) on September 17th and 18th. My shift will be from 4am to 8am on the 18th, and Kristi will be in the Twitch chat channel, so you can interact with us there!
I've got some exciting stuff planned for my players, and if you want to make things a little tougher on them, easier on me, or just add a bit more flavor, choose one or more of the following rewards:
$5 - The Scarf of Myrindir: This adds a stripe to the ongoing scarf that Kristi has been making. When the scarf is done, in combination with last year, whomever donates the most to this reward will receive it. (No limit)
$10 - Copy of the Adventure: I'll send the donor a copy of the adventure I'm running, including any notes/doodles I take. (No limit)
$10 - Caffeine: I've reduced my intake of this quite a bit over the past few years. Let's fix that. For every one of these that gets claimed, I'll take a shot of espresso. (8 available)
$20 - Buy a Monster I: The DM adds one of the following monsters of the donorâ??s choice to the adventure: carrion crawler, cockatrice, dinosaur of any type, displacer beast, faerie dragon, kenku, mimic, ooze of any type, owlbear, rust monster, troll. (1 available)
$20 - Reroll: I gain a reroll to use during the game. (2 Available)

$50 - Create Adventure Content: The donor can create an encounter, trap, NPC, riddle, or the like, which I will use during the course of the adventure. (2 Available)
$50 - Famous NPC: I will include a famous fantasy/cartoon character of the donorâ??s choosing, such as Gandalf, Voldemort, Grunkle Stan, or the like. I'll even try to do the voice. (1 Available)
$50 - Artifact: I will include a famous artifact or magic item of the donorâ??s choosing in the adventure, such as a deck of many things, the Hand of Vecna, or a vorpal sword. (1 Available)
$100 - Buy a Real Big Monster: ?I'll add one of the following monsters of the donorâ??s choice to the adventure: balor, death knight, demilich, dracolich, kraken, pit fiend, purple worm, tarrasque; or the donor suggests something not on the list. (1 Available)
As we approach the event, I may add more incentives. And if I break my goal of 2k, I'll do something spiffyâ?just haven't decided what yet.
