ANNOUNCING CCD20 2017 live at GEEK and SUNDRY DEC 9th

We are happy to announce I'll be hosting the 6th annual Celebrity ChariD20 live on Dec 9th.

We at Maze Arcana are extremely happy to partner with Geek and Sundry to make this year's CCD20 the biggest one yet. AND with Dungeons and Dragons & sponsoring. 

This year we have 5 Game Masters: Keith Baker DMing Eberron D&D, Ruty Rutenberg DMing Forgotten Realms D&D, Ivan Van Norman GMing Outbreak Undead, Satine Phoenix DMing Eberron D&D & Jason Carl Storytelling Vampire the Masquerade.

CCD20 December 9th, 2017 10am-8pm live on 

Players will be announced as we get their RSVPs this week!

It's an honor to be able to continue this fundraising event. It feels amazing to be able to give back to the world by doing the things we love most. After the big car accident a few years ago I wasn't sure if I'd be able to continue this event, but with the love and support from my friends we have kept it alive and this year is going to be bigger than I ever dreamed it could be... and that's also thanks to all of you who come together to support charity with all of us.

Volunteering your time, money and love to help the next generation grow and learn is no small gesture. With as busy as our world is we often neglect those basic needs. If it wasn't for my grandmother and her love of books and reading, I might not have spent my youth in libraries creating and reading stories that would temper the chaos that was my family. That is what I want to give back to the world: the kindness and attention needed to find the courage to be one's self.  The confidence gained because I loved reading and the playful imagination that grew because of the many stories I absorbed is all thanks to my grandmother. There are children out there right now whose parents aren't aware how important this is. We can help by supporting programs like Reach out and Read. 

Thank you all for your valuable time. We at Maze Arcana, Geek and Sundry, Dungeons and Dragons & are so excited to adventure with you for this big Holiday Charity Event.

Love & Light, Satine.

Last night Matt & I tested Sound and video while Keith Baker tested the game with Adam Levermore, Nika Harper, Jayson Elliott & Tim Regan. I tried not to listen in too much in case I have to step in and play in a game but the hooting, hollering and laughing was very exciting!

So excited to see how different the groups will react to the adventure!

One of our Rad sponsors is Hero Forge! These guys are producing printed figures that (after having painted them) i can honestly say are REALLY AWESOME. I was surprised at the amount of detail they were able to get! The best part is that you get to design your own mini using their Design Software on the website. Printed figures come in different materials & Sizes!

I would explain how awesome they are, except they do it best in their KS Video! So.. HERE:

I asked these fine Gents about their thoughts on Early Childhood literacy, Storytelling and Table Top Roleplaying and this is what they had to say:

"Hero Forge is thrilled to be able to offer something to Reach Out and Read, Inc. We're passionate about tabletop gaming and storytelling, and encouraging literacy at a young age is one of best ways to provide children with the keys to new, inspiring stories and thrilling, alien worlds. And, of course, beyond literal fun and games, literacy provides the essential foundation for success later in life.

Projects like the Celebrity D&D game are especially close to our hearts. Gaming has played an important role in so many children's development and flourishing (especially true for us, the founders of Hero Forge), so it seems only natural to further catalyze it to do good. We expect nothing but the greatest of success for the project this year and in years to come, measured in improved lives and new opportunities.

-Joshua Bennett, Co-Founder of Hero Forge"

Thank you thank you So much guys! They Really turned out so good! Very impressive!
