On November 3rd, Dungeons & Dragons will be hosting games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at our beloved children's hospitals! In support of this effort I will be wielding my power as Sr. Director of D&D to help raise money by finding fun spoils & swag to inspire extra donations.
Please help me reach my Extra Life fundraising goal! To inspire your generosity, I’ve set the following donation rewards. Just mention what reward you’re choosing in the messaging/comments or in email when you donate. Limited rewards will be stricken from the list if/when they are chosen. First donor to claim a reward, receives the reward.


REWARDS

CLAIMED - Beadle & Grimm’s Waterdeep: Dragon Heist Platinum Edition ($5,000 or more) - One (1) Offered & One (1) Claimed

Beadle & Grimm’s Pandemonium Warehouse is the newest and coolest thing to happen to D&D adventuring groups. They are creating, under an arrangement with Wizards of the Coast, a bespoke crate filled with elements a Dungeon Master needs to create an amazing experience for their players. The box is filled with a deconstructed adventure, minis, maps, DM screen, encounter cards and more. This Platinum Edition box valued at $499.99 (SRP) is available to everyone, but you getting something special here…Nathan Stewart (Director of D&D) & Matthew Lillard (co-founder of Beadle & Grimm’s/actor) will personally deliver one of the first boxes off the production line. While in the neighborhood we might as play a game of D&D with you and a few of your friends. So yeah, you’ll get bragging rights and a bunch of pictures to post on social media.

The fine print: this is only available in the contiguous United States and subject to availability of the product and schedules between all three parties. Matt is currently filming a weekly show so heavy coordination should be expected. You will need to give us permission to post pictures/video from the “moment” to post on D&D and Beadle & Grimm’s website and social media.

CLAIMED - Co-host “Spoilers & Swag” with Nathan & Kate ($2,501 or more) – One (1) Offered & One 1 Claimed

Make your way to Seattle Washington and join us in the studio or vid-con in from the comfort of your own home. You get the chance to be on an upcoming monthly D&D Fireside Chat commonly referred to as “Spoilers & Swag” (for a mutually agreeable livestream date). You will participate in witty banter, help drive the show flow, talk about spoilers we reveal and help give out swag. You and your social media handles will be promoted in conjunction with the show and quite possibly achieve the status of local hero.

The fine print: this doesn’t include any airfare or accommodations and you’ll need to sign an NDA onsite for all of the cool stuff you might see that includes permission for us to show you on camera, etc.

Co-host “Happy Fun Hour” with Mike Mearls ($2,500 or more) – One (1) Offered

Make your way to Seattle Washington and join us in the studio or vid-con in from the comfort of your own home. You get the chance to be on an upcoming monthly D&D Fireside Chat (for a mutually agreeable livestream date). Mike will coordinate with you for the specific date and topic of the show and together you will build heroes, make monsters and create a wondrous item for Mike’s home game. SHHH…don’t tell Mike I did this until after someone claims it.

The fine print: this doesn’t include any airfare or accommodations and you’ll need to sign an NDA onsite for all of the cool stuff you might see that includes permission for us to show you on camera, etc.

CLAIMED Guest Editor for one issue of Dragon+ ($2000 or more) - One of one (1/1) Offered & Claimed

I’ll use my power to basically make you Bart Carroll’s boss for one issue of Dragon+ digital magazine. Join conference calls/video to go over layout and creative decisions, discuss interviewees for the issue, write the letter from the editor, try out any of the maps/codes we give away in that issue and ultimately sign off on the finished product and have the sneak peek.

The fine print: you’ll need to sign an NDA for all of the cool stuff you will be privy to before the public. Dragon+ is a bi-monthly release and you will have to work with the existing production schedules to ensure we release the issue on time. You will NOT be able to fire or promote Bart or any other boss things. 

CLAIMED - 2 VIP Guest Passes to Next Summer’s D&D Event ($1500 or more) – Five of Five (5/5) Pairs Offered Are Claimed

Not including airfare or lodging (event will probably be on the continental US’s West Coast) you and a guest will have VIP passes to participate in all the activities including meet & greets with the cast and crew, food and drinks at the event and any swag that isn’t nailed down. Check out the Stream of Many Eyes videos on our site for an idea of what type of cool stuff goes on.

The fine print: you’ll need to sign an NDA for all of the cool stuff you will be privy to before the public. You are responsible for all travel and travel related expenses. You’ll need to sign the promotional waivers related to being on-site and if there is pancake making again this year you will receive a custom pancake.

Special Guest Playtester for an Upcoming Product ($1000 or more) – Two of Ten (4/10) Offered are Claimed

Get included in the playtest portion of a new product development cycle where you and your home group (subject to who signs the NDA) can try out the work in progress adventure and give feedback on it. This will be used by the designers to finish and publish an upcoming book release.  In addition, you will get your name in the credits and 6 early release copies to share with your gaming group.

The fine print: you’ll need to sign an NDA for all of the cool stuff you will be privy to before the public and no spoilers, absolutely no spoilers will be tolerated.

“Spin the Wheel” on the November Spoilers & Swag Livestream ($250 or more) – Three of Ten (3/10) Offered are Claimed

As part of the November Spoilers & Swag livestream on Twitch.tv/dnd you will get a turn spinning the wheel (or whatever random method I find) to decide what spoils are revealed or swag given out. If the wheel lands on a spoiler then I go to the chart and reveal some news nugget (who cares if Tito approved it) and if it lands on a swag square then you win said swag. I’m pulling out the big guns on the swag for a couple of spaces and picking one really good spoiler so who knows what will happen.

The fine print: the date might change, the time might change and you might not get any of the spoils or swag that you want. Technical difficulties may occur so you might have to wait. If you aren’t able to tune in then Pelham will proxy for you but if it lands on a cool Death Saves shirt then you get the shirt not Pelham. This and all of the rewards are donation rewards not prizes and you aren’t winning anything…you are donating to a really worthy cause so if something unforeseen happens to cause something to become unavailable or too difficult to pull off then please work with us to find something else cool.
