Dungeons & Donations 7: Giants in Quarantine

Hello! We emerge from our quarantined slumber to announce this year's Dungeons & Donations event! Due to the whole world being what it is right now, this event will be pretty different than past years. Rather than queue players up in the real world and see who can last the longest while an audience tries to kill them as quickly as possible, we will instead all be in our own homes, players and DM's rotating through in staggered shifts. This year, we're playing the module G-1-2-3 Against the Giants, updated for 5th Edition in Tales from the Yawning Portal


So where's the fun for the audience this year? Well, besides watching our fun adventures, the audience can still participate with some donations. If you like a particular player's antics, you can reward them with a donation. Donations will go into their "Boon Pool", which they can spend to get some in-game benefits. 

If you'd rather help out the bad guys, you can Adopt a Monster! Donate at least $5 and get an on-screen shout-out in the form of having one of the monsters or NPC's named after you. 


Adopt a Trap

Of course, Adopt a Trap is back! For a donation of $50 (made before December 1st) you can include a trap of your own design in this year's event! We are toning down the deadliness this year, so we suggest you go for frustration or amusement rather than a "murder blender" when designing your trap.

If you go to our Extra Life page and choose the Adopt a Trap donation, you can sign up to include your trap! Remember, after your donation, you'll have to email us (address given when making the donation) the details of your trap by December 1st! If we do not receive that email by that date, we cannot include your trap and we are unable to refund your donation.

We look forward to seeing your devious designs!

Stay Tuned!


So that's our info for now, we hope you can join us! But watch this space for more updates as we get closer to the event!

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!
