CheckPoint is a charity that connects mental health resources with video games and technology. This event is designed to be relaxing experience, showcasing gaming’s spot in self care, as well as raising money to connect gamers with mental health resources.
Non-Toxic Gaming has taken this a step further by dedicating an entire 24-hour D&D stream for the fundraiser. D&D Actual play videos and streams have become more and more popular since the wild success of Critical Role, and other casts such as The Adventure Zone, and HarmonQuest. NTG is harnessing this push into tabletop RPGs for a good cause.
The stream will feature six separate D&D 5th Edition games from personalities all over the Tabletop RPG community and other online personalities and streamers. Included in the program is the first ever instance of a live D&D game presented entirely in American Sign Language in an effort to show that tabletop RPGs are for anyone. The ASL game will also feature someone translating for those who do not know ASL. Stream participants have also adopted a strategy in which players can show they are uncomfortable with a particular topic so game masters and players can steer clear of anything that may cause feelings of discomfort.
The stream will feature giveaways and audience participation through donations. You can even catch me participating from in the 10pm PDT game.
Be sure to check out the stream at Non-Toxic Gaming’s twitch channel.
