December 15th - 16th, 2023!
How it works
From 12pm (ET), December 15th to 12pm, December 16th, we'll be running a 24-hour live Twitch stream of heroes trekking through the classic adventure modules The Isle of Dread. Players can come to The Wyvern's Tale at any time during those hours to get in on the game. $5 gets you on the list, and as soon as someone dies you get moved up to the table.
Viewers will have the option of making donations as well, and a donation of $5 allows them to alter something in the game. A donation made For the Kids will provide a boon to the players while a donation made For the Foe will inflict upon them a randomly chosen bane!
If a player's character dies they (or a benevolent viewer) can pay $5 to have their character instantly raised from the dead. After the first raise, this cost doubles each time (e.g., the second raise is $10, the third is $20, and so on). If they wish to play again with a different character, they may once again pay $5 to join the bottom of the queue.
This year, we'll also have a few players that we're calling "Tour Guides" of the Isle of Dread. These players are scheduled to play in specific slots and are there to make sure someone is always playing, and maybe help our other heroes along the way, and are not competing to have the longest streak.
Dungeon Masters will rotate throughout the 24 hours, and each will be keen to prove how many adventurers they can fell within the perilous dungeons!
Boons & Banes
You can help the players by donating toward their Boon Pool which they can spend on in-game benefits (see the full list here).
But it's much more fun to punish them with a Bane! Donate $5 for a random bane, or choose one from the list for $25, and make our players work for their winning streak! Here's the full list of Banes.
Watch this space for more details about Boons and Banes, ways to participate as a viewer, and much more!
