Introducing Jasper’s Game Day

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Hi! We’re Jasper’s Game Day and we’re here to change the world, one game at a time!

Our journey began back in 2017. After losing two friends to suicide in a ten-month period, our creator, Fenway, teamed up with her mentor, Satine Pheonix, to use TTRPGs to help prevent others from going through similar losses. Partnering with local conventions, they used the games we all love to play to raise money to support local Suicide Crisis Centers to aid with resources and spread awareness.

Since that humble first event, Jasper’s Game Day has grown into an international movement that is raising more money than Fenway and Satine could have imagined. In 2020 alone, over $100,000 dollars has been raised in the name of Jasper’s Game Day for fighting suicide.

While active all 365 days of the year with streams and games, the main event is Jasper’s Game WEEK. This annual event in May has brought together gamers from around the world with guest DMs and players, many of whom are household names in the TTRPG community. When first starting, Jasper’s Game Day focused mainly on Dungeons and Dragons but has since grown to include players of different TTRPGS, including Vampire: The Masquerade, Star Wars, and, of course, Pathfinder and Starfinder. Thanks to our new partnership with Paizo, we look forward to expanding our tables with members of the Pathfinder and Starfinder community.

If you or someone you know is interested in hosting or playing in a Pathfinder or Starfinder game through Jasper’s Game Day, you can contact us at our website, jaspersgameday.com. Or find us on Twitter at @JaspersGameDay. We’d love to have you playing with us and part of our party as well all fight to prevent suicide.

If you need help or someone to talk to about your mental health please call the suicide hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

Until the next game and remember #everyrollmatters!

Paizo is a new sponsor of Jasper’s Game Day. We will be amplifying their cause and events when and where we can, and we invite you to do the same at your tables. We’ve over 160 products to bring to you this year with a growing number of licensed partners with products of their own to shout out about, but there are some causes worthy of making room for.

Watch them play Pathfinder on YouTube at Jasper's Game Day Event | New Year, Mentally Healthier You | Day 1, Game 2 - NoNat1's Table. Thanks to GM @nonat1s, the players, and all those who participated. It is never too late to donate!

Look for an event on March 5-7 and a three-day Paizoverse stream in May! #everyrollmatters

Adventures Ahead,

Very cool! And unfortunately an even more important cause after the year we've all had.

And good to see that dork NoNat getting some more eyes on his contributions to the community! :)

We have no plans to add a major event to our schedule at this time. Local organizers and conventions are free to partner with Jasper's Game Day; several of our conventions already support them by fundraising.

Any convention or event with a charity fundraising component can receive special Charity Boons as part of their event support package should they request them.

I was asking because I am looking at linking our regularly schedule tables to the event but not actually hosting a separate event.

Thanks for the info.
