Dungeons & Dragons Extra Life 2017


D&D Extra Life 2017

We play a lot of Dungeons & Dragons here, both in front of the camera on and behind the scenes. But there's nothing more satisfying than playing D&D to raise money for kids. 2017 is going to be our fourth year bringing the D&D community together to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. With the help of our amazing community of DMs, players, donors, and viewers, we raised over $74,000 last year. And since 2013 we've raised an astounding $290,000 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals!

This year, we're doubling down by streaming not only from the d20 Studio at the Wizards of the Coast offices, but also pulling together many of our livestream gamers to broadcast D&D sessions from multiple locations across the globe—including game sessions taking place at GameHole Con.

As a further bonus, this year we've create special downloadable content at the Dungeon Masters Guild. Chris Perkins and the rest of the D&D team have specially created tortles as a playable race, with all proceeds directing benefiting Extra Life/Children’s Hospitals. (If you are unfamiliar with tortles, they are a race of anthropomorphic turtles that have appeared in previous editions of the game.) This material also includes an adventure location and a few added monsters as well!
