Defeat Duchenne. Change Lives.

Quest for the Cure: Episode Zero

A group of heroes is summoned forth to undertake a dangerous mission…but their benefactor is not at all whom they expected, and their quest is not at all what it appears.

Deep in a hostile territory, with no friends or allies to count on, their decisions will change will change the future for all of Toril.

A group of nerds got together and asked, “what if…”?

What if we could gather a squad of the best people, produce a show, find a community, and raise money for a cure to Duchenne muscular dystrophy?

Such a simple premise, “what if,” but its inspiration is the fuel that powers Quest for the Cure.

Quest for the Cure is a Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) web-series, where eminent D&D players get together to stream charity games online to raise contributions for Duchenne research. They hope that with every roll of the die, it’s one step closer to a cure. This live play D&D web-series has raised more than $10,000 raised in just three episodes and is becoming the “must-watch” D&D TV!
