Luke Gygax teams up with his friends at Wizards of the Coast, Iron Wind Metals and Dwarven Forge to reflect on the foundation of Dungeons & Dragons and celebrate its phenomenal resurgence. Join Luke and host, Satine Phoenix, as they discuss the origins of D&D from its creation in the tiny town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in 1974, to its massive influence reflected in the popular culture today.
Founders and Legends is a celebration of the men and women that pioneered roleplaying games, and we are celebrating by doing what we love so much—playing D&D! There will be three amazing adventures streamed live on July 28th. The first is a classic game of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons with Dungeon Master Stefan Porkorny. Following his game there will be two fifth edition adventures: Maze Arcana with Satine Phoenix, and a very special finale with D&D Franchise Creative Director Mike Mearls. Guests include industry leaders and celebrity players Joe Manganiello, Jason Charles Miller, T.J. Storm, Kelly Lynn D'Angelo, Mike Noe, Ruty Rutenberg, Amy Vorpahl, and more.
We play a lot of Dungeons & Dragons, both in front of the camera on twitch.tv/dnd and behind the scenes. But there's nothing more satisfying than playing D&D to raise money for kids. Extra Life is a charity organization we’ve been happy to be involved with, where gamers stream themselves playing with the express purpose of driving donations to children's hospitals. For 2018, we’re expanding our livestreaming and other efforts taking place throughout the year.
For starters, as part of Founders and Legends Day, we’ll be raising money in support of Extra Life. Look for further details and links to donate at https://www.extra-life.org/team/dnd, and please consider donating to the cause.
