To help end the cycle of child poverty, Critical Role, through the Critical Role Foundation, is once again joining forces with the one and only Stephen Colbert for a special tabletop roleplaying-based fundraising campaign benefiting Red Nose Day. Red Nose Day is an annual campaign that raises funds to ensure a healthy future for all children. Money raised supports critical programs that keep children safe, healthy, educated and empowered in the US and around the world.

In 2019, Critical Role and Stephen Colbert raised over $120,000 through the Choose Stephen Colbert’s Adventure fundraising campaign, in which Critical Role’s Co-founder and CCO Matthew Mercer conducted a one-shot mini-adventure with Stephen consisting of fan-voted game and story elements. For their next collaboration, Choose Stephen Colbert’s Adventure… Again, they are once again allowing fans to decide on the storytelling elements for Stephen’s mini-adventure through donation-based votes, all benefiting Red Nose Day.

From March 26 at 9AM Pacific through April 1 at 6PM Pacific, donations made through Critical Role’s Tiltify page at can be allocated towards voting in special polls which will shape Stephen’s adventure. The more a donor contributes, the more the scales will be tipped in favor of the donor’s preferred story elements. The story elements that gain the most donations will be utilized in the campaign, which will air on Thursday, April 28 at 7PM Pacific.

Matthew Mercer will once again serve as the game master of the campaign, and joining Stephen as fellow adventurers will be a handful of Critical Role founders. You can also donate directly to the campaign at
