This is a community submitted press release.

During our tabletop games, we're often the heroes who face and overcome impossible odds and save the fantasy worlds we play in. However, Roll For Good believes that those same games, can help save the real world we all live in.

Roll For Good (RFG) returns with a weekend of live-streamed TTRPG one-shots to raise funds in aid of Doctors Without Borders International/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). During 18-19 May, we will be digitally hosting various tables playing games like:

The event will be live-streamed at where donations can impact the games in real time, such as granting a player an extra roll, a bonus or even causing complications at the GM's discretion. As donations are collected for MSF throughout the weekend, moderators in the chat will be running giveaways. Giveaways include digital and physical sets of games such as the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set (donated by Chaosium), The Walking Dead Universe Starter Set & Core Game (donated by Free League Publishing), and Dune: Adventures in the Imperium (donated by Modiphius).

Notable participants include

Roll For Good casts are primarily based outside the U.S. and are from marginalised communities

Our latest event raises funds in aid of MSF through Tiltify to further support access to medical care for individuals affected by armed conflicts, epidemics, natural disasters and targeted exclusion from healthcare. While as TTRPG fans, we might be the heroes within our own games, the medical professionals and supporting staff of MSF are genuine heroes. In particular, those themselves in danger who treat affected communities in Palestine, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and even people in distress crossing the Mediterranean Sea. We hope that any amount RFG raises can help MSF’s impactful and necessary work.

About Roll For Good

Since 2021, RFG is a community primarily based within Europe and the United Kingdom that mobilises the joy of tabletop roleplaying games to fundraise for charities and causes we care about. Our community, also reflected throughout our organising team and volunteers, represents people who are queer, transgender, neurodivergent, POC/BAME, disabled and intersectionally marginalised. All with an emphasis on the TTRPG community beyond the U.S.

Jasper W. Cartwright previously joined us to talk about POC representation at TTRPG tables

Previous RFG events have raised a total of over £10,000 for charities such as Mind, World Central Kitchen, Mermaids, One Earth One Ocean, ILGA World and AKT Charity.

How you can help

If you're able to do so, please donate via our Tiltify campaign. Doing so during the event also means you can affect a game and take part in giveaways for TTRPG prizes. Donations are not required to participate in giveaways.

Sharing news and posts about our event is also an excellent way to help. The more word gets out about our event, the more likely other people in positions to donate can find us. Make noise about it on socials (RFG is on Twitter, Instagram and Bluesky), tell your friends when you're playing TTRPGs or at your FLGS.

Be in our Twitch chat during the event and engage! This also helps others find our stream and they may be compelled to donate as well.
