Dungeons & Dragons COVID-19 Charity Event Revealed With Star-Studded Celebrity Lineup

If there’s one thing we can still rely on in these difficult times, it’s the unstoppable power of love, kindness, and random number generation. To that end, a new Dungeons & Dragons charity event has been announced that will be bringing together an incredible lineup of celebrities to help aid in the recovery efforts versus the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The folks over at Wizards of The Coast recently took to Twitter to announce a brand new Dungeons & Dragons charity event kicking off mid-June. The event itself will be bringing together celebrities from all walks of fame, featuring D&D personalities like Deborah Ann Woll as well as folks like Matthew Lillard (Scooby Doo) and WWE’s Alexa Bliss.

Here’s a list of some of the folks involved in the event:

  • Funny people like Thomas Middleditch, Brian Posehn, and Kevin Sussman will work together to solve problems or, more likely, cause some hilarious new ones.
  • WWE Superstars Alexa Bliss, Tyler Breeze, Dio Maddin, Ember Moon, and Xavier Woods will contend with the beefcake destroyer Jeremy Crawford, a.k.a. Principal Rules Designer for D&D.
  • Deborah Ann Woll will lead a group of actors—including Amy Acker, Janina Gavankar, and Matthew Lillard, and Sam Richardson—in improvising a way to help people in a fantasy world not that different from ours.
  • And principal D&D writer Chris Perkins takes players new to D&D—including Felicia Day, Brett Gelman, David Harbour, Brandon Routh, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Martin Starr—through adventures sure to de-mystify the hobby for all who tune in.
