The senior organising group of the collective is also formed of volunteers who reflect its diversity and dedicate time and energy to helping people worldwide benefit from tabletop roleplaying.
The collectives latest event will focus on Mermaids, a UK-based charity that supports young trans people and their families. During the whole day, groups of players and game masters will be able to play a variety of RPGs, which will be livestreamed. Featuring intermissions, as well as live-chats, which are moderated by volunteers and giveaways to encourage viewers to donate.
Roll for Good will include one-shot playthroughs, meaning that the entire narrative will be divided into sections - of tabletop RPG titles such as popular fantasy TRPG Dungeons & Dragons 5E, the horror RPG Vampire: The Masquerade, which involves players becoming members of the beautiful and the dead in the modern age, and Camp Slaughter, a roleplaying game that involves the group playing a horror movie.
Mermaids is a non-for-profit organization that provides support for transgender, nonbinary, and gender-diverse kids and young people as well as their families. As a charity, Mermaids helps young people to experience greater community and emotional help, as well as educate society on transgender, non-binary, and gender-diverse identities.
The Friday Night Live fundraiser for Mermaids will be held on October 22nd, with spectators able to watch and donate.
