This week brings forth two highly anticipated events that deserve your attention. First up, the series finale of the long-standing Rivals of Waterdeep. After five years of captivating storytelling, Rivals of Waterdeep will be concluding its epic journey on its monumental 15th season. This remarkable actual play series has stood as a shining example of representation, showcasing BIPOC voices at the table. Starting its production under the banner of Wizards, the show later transitioned to independent production in 2021, steadfastly continuing its narrative with the support of dedicated fans. Unfortunately, the sponsorship from Wizards fully dropped in 2022, but the resilient team persevered, determined to complete the final two and a half seasons through their raised funds. Whether you’re an old friend of Rivals or you’ve only heard whispers on the wind, stop by their series finale on Sunday @ 10 AM PST on Twitch to share in a moment of fond farewell.

In big charity stream news, Unprepared Casters is hosting a Tournament of Champions this Saturday! On June 10th they are hosting 4 special guests to join their cast of 12 characters in order to dungeon-crawl, battle it out, and raise cash for @TransLifeline in a 12-hour, all-day D&D event extravaganza!
