Extra Life 2019

On November 2nd and 3rd, I'll be running a 24-hour Dungeons and Dragons campaign (10AM-10PM Saturday and Sunday) to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital! This is my third year running this game and I can't wait!

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • On the Game Days (Nov. 2nd and 3rd), I will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate 24-hours to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!

  • 100% of the donations go to my local hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation. 

24-Hours of D&D?

Yes! And it will all be streaming live on Twitch! (and available later on YouTube!)

We'll have a number of players joining over the course of our two game sessions, but it will be one campaign! This year, as determined my the roll of a die, we will be running the Acquisitions Incorporated adventure module: “Orrery of the Wanderer”!

If you aren't familiar with Acquisitions Incorporated, it's a fantastic D&D property which blends modern corporate and business humor with the hack-and-slash adventuring of D&D! This adventure has plenty of fan-service for people who know the show, but it's also plenty accessible for newcomers.

There will also be customized rewards for donors based on the adventure!

Adventure Franchise donation Rewards!

Profits or Penalties ($Any Amount): The amount you donate will be converted to Gold Pieces, but will this be a performance bonus for the party, or a fine levied against them? You decide whether to line their pockets or bleed them dry!

Charitable Advantage! ($5 each): The party will have a pool of advantage dice that will give them a little boost for those extra-crucial roles!

Get an Intern to Do It! ($25): As new franchise owners of Acquisition Incorporated, the party will have to do some hiring and firing of interns! For this donation, you can name and describe an intern that the party will have to interview. If they make the cut, maybe they continue on as an NPC!

Change Order! ($50): Working for Acquisitions Incorporated means that the party have bosses they report to. Be one, and make them do stuff! For this donation, you can add a conditional requirement to the current mission. (For example, tell them that they have to hand out an advertising flyer to every NPC they meet.) Or just demand that they pick up your fantasy dry-cleaning!

So Many Levels donation Rewards!

Lucky Loot! ($25): Decide on a bit of treasure for the party to find!

NPC-ME! ($50): Have an NPC named after you! Friendly shopkeep? Arroggant Knight? Fey spirit? You decide!

Monstrous Bounty! ($100): Choose a monster for the party to encounter! Will the party fight them? Run away? Make friends? You'll find out when I do, as the party decides for themselves!

Christiana Rewards!

Five More Minutes! ($25): Choose a topic for me to discuss on an installment of Five More Minutes!

Interdimensional Private-Eye! ($50): Receive a customized e-book version of my novel: Phyllis Esposito: Interdimensional Private-Eye!

Hey Want to Watch a Movie? ($100): Choose a movie and join me and some friends for an episode of "Hey, Want to Watch a Movie?" The movie-watching podcast I hardly ever do anymore! (Movie choice subject to my discretion.)
