The 24 Hour RPG Event is back!
Welcome warriors, both keyboard and otherwise!
This year, 24HR RPG is going for a hybrid event with both virtual and in person sessions. Get ready for a weekend of gruelling endurance and exciting adventures, all in aid of Shelter. Times are tough for all, but no one should feel the threat of losing their home. That is why we invite gamers of every flavour to join together and raise money to support Shelter in keeping the nation safe and housed.
We are welcoming individual streamers as well as traditional RPG groups. We encourage everybody to stream their games on the day via Twitch, YouTube, UStream or any other suitable service .
Every group should also set up a JustGiving page, by clicking the Join Team button at https://www.justgiving.com/team/24-hour-rpg, so all donations go to the same place. You will need to create your own JustGiving page first, let one of us know if you get stuck.
Any players at one of the RPG tables will need to bid real money to gain their seat, with the highest bids taking a place in the game. Those streaming videogames or other activities are less restricted, but are still very much encouraged raise as much money as they can. GM's and individual streamers don't have to bid (unless they really want to), but everyone is of course strongly encouraged to get as many sponsors as possible.
Some games may even allow their sponsor the opportunity to help or hinder their chosen beneficiary through their donations. For every £5 given, a sponsor can inflict a Friend or a Foe token, to help or hinder their efforts. Maybe it will give them a reroll, or an extra chance. Maybe the monsters get another attack in, or they are forced to stand still for a bit longer than they should.
Individual players/groups don't have to participate in one of the public streams if they are uncomfortable doing so. Using character portraits, or muting from the public stream is fine, as long as they are still part of the JustGiving team page.
