When you start streaming from your streaming software (Streamlabs OBS, OBS, Lightstream, XSplit) or console, your stream will appear on your fundraising page!

When submitting your donation, we request that you send a comment that specifies a name, contact email, and which rewards you are donating for. Otherwise, we will not know how your donation will affect our games!
You seem so familiar... I am certain we have seen your face before. On a wanted poster, perhaps, or in the background of the local Matchbook Menagerie meeting? Either way, this donation earns an in-character shout-out from the Mistwalker of your choice during the stream. (No limit)
Vargis has heard some particularly sinful gossip about you and is prepared to share it with his dedicated Twitter following. Follow @misttalesdnd and be sure to send a comment with your personal Twitter handle to ensure you are properly scandalized. (No limit)
Tarokka cards are rare, precious items and you could have one of your own! This donation will enter you in a raffle to win a Tarokka card redesigned by the brilliant Kayla Cline. The raffle will be drawn after the Live GHC Finale. (No limit, each donation in this tier is an entry)
Kayla Cline taps into her supernatural intuition and examines your photograph/profile picture. Using her magical abilities (as well as tablet and stylus), she will add the spectral anomaly that is terrorizing your life (on top of your photograph). (2/10 available)
The Mists of Ravenloft open to allow personalized messages from your Mistwalker of choice, using one of our three available postcard designs. (US only)

The Mistwalkers will march into the glorious revolution armed with plenty of level-appropriate Potions of Healing! One donation earns them one potion--let's hope they won't need them. (No Limit)
The Mistwalkers have their spirits touched and eyes opened by the Dark Powers. One donation earns a Mistwalker a point of Inspiration, to unlock their Dark Shadows and help bring freedom to Ravenloft. (No Limit)
How fortunate! Vasily seems to have some extra potions stashed away just for this occasion!
The two unfortunate souls who donate to this tier will be unmasked as operatives of the Matchbook Menagerie during the GHC Live Finale. NPCs bearing their names will appear in cameo roles and will be considered canon additions to Tales From the Mists lore. (2/2 Available)
The Dark Powers are watching and are listening, and one donor can force them to intervene during the GHC Live Finale. Whether for good or for ill, the Dark Powers will extend their hands into the lives of the Mistwalkers. (1/1 Available)
