On Oct 1st 2019, I announced that we are organizing a D&D 5E event supporting the ExtraLife charity. Trimarc Security https://www.trimarcsecurity.com/ and Rendition Infosec https://www.renditioninfosec.com/ have chosen to sponsor this event, and the players are donating their time and help organizing and creating it. This is going to be fun!
How can we help?
If you can help financially, donating directly to the campaign http://bit.ly/RallySec-ExtraLife is going to help the kids a lot.
Even if you can’t help monetarily, helping with retweets or shares will get the word out and bring awareness, which will help a lot!
What it is
We’re going to be streaming the game live via Twitch https://twitch.tv/rallysecurity Viewers and Donors can both help the kids and affect the game directly by donating to ExtraLife, and all proceeds donated from Twitch subscriptions and bits are being given to the RallySec ExtraLife campaign at the end of the night.
When you donate, you get to pick from a list of priced actions or effects that the donor can have on the game as seen on the following chart:
