As reported by Entertainment Weekly, the adventurous quest will take place Saturday, June 20 at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET with Kate Welch, the game designer for D&D at Wizards of the Coast, as the Dungeon Master. The game, also called a campaign, will follow a group of heroes who “meet an unusual creature that sets them on a strange task. Seems simple enough — but in a realm legendary for its danger, all is not what it seems,” via EW.
Because the charity event runs from June 18-20, there will be several games with a rotating list of dungeon masters and players. Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) will kick off the virtual D&D as Dungeon Master with a campaign that includes players of Amy Acker (Angel), Janina Gavankar (The Way Back), Matthew Lillard (Scream) and Sam Richardson (Veep). The following day will see Stranger Things’ David Harbour in a campaign alongside Brandon Routh (Legends of Tomorrow).
The event can be streamed on the Dungeons and Dragons YouTube and Twitch channels with more details available on the official D&D website. To heighten anticipation for these Hollywood stars’ debut to D&D, the event teaser trailer can be seen below.
