Dungeons & Dog Tags was started in 2020 after I ran 12 total hours of online Dungeons & Dragons games during GaryCon XIII. It occurred to me that I could easily run similar games online for our troops who were serving in Afghanistan at that time. With the end of operations in Afghanistan we expanded our mission to include Veterans and our civilian supporters.
We have divided our mission into two phases. The current phase, Phase I, is facilitating online games for our military community. We have chosen Discord as our platform. It is free to use and does not require downloading an app.
In 2022 we partnered with Department of Dungeons & Dragons to expand our reach into the military community. DoD&D produces a livestreaming D&D game with an all-Veteran cast.
Phase II of our mission is facilitating in-person games for our Veterans and Active Duty personnel on military installations, VA facilities and civilian locations. To date we have helped two Active Duty units start in-person games overseas by sending core rule books, dice, and minis. We hope to have Phase II operational by the end of 2022.
We want to thank all our supporters including LTC Luke Gygax (US Army), son of Gary Gygax one of the inventors of Dungeons & Dragons.
