It's almost time!

We're very excited to be kicking things off tomorrow!

We want you to be able to see the all new Boons and Banes! Check them out here. This year we're switching from dice tables to a new system of decks of cards. We think it should make things more fun, easy to follow, and most importantly: deadly!

And we now have our milestone goals available to view, which can unlock a special NOPE Deck that makes our Banes even deadlier!

Join us tomorrow at 6pm ET for all the mayhem!

DnDonations 6, and Hourly Sponsorships

We're very excited to announce this year's event, Strahd's Holiday Nightmare! Ravenloft is a module we've been thinking about doing for a while, and this year we hope to do it the justice it deserves.

This year, we're also offering hourly sponsorships for every hour to businesses, organizations, or any cause that you want to get publicity. If you're interested in promoting yourself while giving to a good cause, please contact us at danddonations@gmail.com with the subject "Hourly Sponsor"

The day is here!

Just over two hours until Dungeons & Donations 5 officially kicks off! We hope you can tune in and join us over the next 24 hours! Donate to make our players' lives worse (or marginally better). Even just being able to watch or share the link to others helps increase our visibility and keeps the good times rolling. We hope to make this year spectacular!

Adopt-a-Trap 2018

With less than a month to our voyage aboard the USS DnDonations, we're happy to announce we are once again re-opening our Adopt-a-Trap program!

Are you a nefarious Dungeon Master who has all sorts of vicious and lethal traps up your sleeve? Perhaps you've made a whole binder full of them? Perhaps you delight in the look on a player's face when you tell them what creative new way you have devised for their character to die? Or maybe you just like reading a lot of Grimtooth's Ultimate Traps?

If you answered yes to any of those, I bet more often than not, your players complain, or tell you to take it easy, or say dying all the time "isn't fun." What do they know.

Well we have an offer for you! Here at Dungeons & Donations, creative lethality is highly encouraged! Donate $25 towards our goal and we'll let you put a trap in our game! It can be as crazy, convoluted, lethal, or in any other manner superfluous as you desire!

When the players come to the realization that their characters are well and truly (and thoroughly) dead, as we wipe their remains from the floor, we'll tell them just whose machinations brought about their untimely demise. We'll give you credit on our live broadcast!

If you'd like to participate, go to our Extra Life page and click "Donate", and choose the $25 donation option. In your message, be sure to include that this is for Adopt-a-Trap. Don't donate anonymously or we won't be able to verify your donation. Finally, send us an email with the subject "Adopt-a-Trap". We'll be in touch to get your trap details.

We'll be closing new entries on 11:59 pm ET, November 22nd so be sure to get your donations in by then. We look forward to seeing what devious creations you all dream up!

The Countdown Begins: Adopt a Trap

Closing Up 2016

This year we had help from so many people and things moved so fast, we didn't have time to keep track of them all, but trust that many people made this possible and we are so grateful to all of them. Check out our team page for some of the names that put this together this year.

Now, let's wrap things up!

Characters Slain
Dusk Patrol, 17
Moonwatch, 6
Sunguard, 5

Total, 28

Longest streak: 17:30, Ashling the Halfling Monk played by Myriah Wood. Our longest record ever by far! It will take some doing to dethrone her.

and of course,
$3,725 raised for the Children's Miracle Network. Way, way higher than our goal!

We improved on much this year, and still learned a lot for next year, so stay tuned in 2017 for more info!
