You can get involved in supporting Gameblast through the game by sponsoring the players or DM. In doing so, you can donate money to affect the game, in terms of story, mechanics, or chance. You could donate to allow a player to gain a magic item, to change a character’s accent, or to allow the DM to do something diabolical.

You can sponsor the participants using the suggestions below, or you can use them as thresholds for your own creative ideas.

*note* All donations are happily received, but the intended effects will be checked before being passed on to the DM. All suggestions must be reasonable – no tarrasques will drop in the city of Waterdeep!
