In Madison, Wisconsin, there is a special event just for D&D (Dungeons & Dragons)

called Gamehole Con. The convention will be filled with vendors, shops, gaming rooms and some rooms will have podcasts/live-streams. Tabletop gamers around the world are going to this event and some of them are quite famous in the D&D community.

Matthew Mercer is known for being a voice actor in many anime and video games, but what he is most known for is that he and his fellow D&D friends host live D&D seasons. They all are voice actors.

Another famous person that is going is Jeremy Crawford. He is the lead rule designer for D&D and led the design for the player handbook and co-led many other D&D books.

On the Nov. 9 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. PDT, there will be a podcast hosted by Dungeon of Doom (Campaign/game for D&D) with Stefan Pokorny. He is known for being a professional painter and sculptor. He is also known for being the creator of a D&D company called Dwarven Forge that makes models/landscapes for D&D.

A fun event to go to if you go to the Gamhole Con is the Adventurers League Admins Livestream Game.

Alan Patrick and his fellow admins will be hosting this live stream on Nov. 10 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PDT. His admins that will be attending are William Benham, Lysa Chen, Claire Hoffman, Greg Marks and Travis Woodall. They will be going into the campaign called “Undermountain.”

Every event at Gamehole Con will support with the Extra Life Foundation. The Extra Life Foundation helps thousands of children in Children Miracle Network Hospitals. Extra Life will do a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support children in network hospitals. In 2017, they raised $40 million.
