About Dungeons & Dog Tags
Dungeons & Dog Tags started as an idea after running 12 total hours of online Dungeons & Dragons during GaryCon XIII. The idea was to bring online Dungeons & Dragons games to our boots on the ground during their scheduled down times. We have expanded that mission to include our honored Veterans.
We provide experienced dungeon masters and Role Playing Games for our Active Duty and Veterans, a Discord server to communicate and play D&D, and support to all our gamers.
Our games come at no cost to our players, either for online memberships or dues. DMs may choose to pay for their own subscriptions to Virtual Table Tops (VTTs) such as Roll20 or Fantasy Grounds to provide the best gaming experience for everyone. Some of our DMs are old school Theater of the Mind and audio only.
Dungeons & Dog Tags is looking for both players and experienced DMs. While the players are all Veterans and Active Duty, some of our DMs will be civilian in order to accommodate as many players as possible.
To Our Supporters
We want to extend a special thank you to LTC Luke Gygax, son of Gary Gygax co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, and his support of our mission.
And to all the Active Duty Service Members and Veterans who have stepped up to the call of D&D, we would not be here if not for you.
Games As Therapy
Over a decades’ worth of psychological studies have gone into Dungeons & Dragons and it’s benefits in both therapeutic and non-therapeutic settings.
We believe Dungeons & Dragons bonds players at a level few other games, outside of sports, does. It has shown to provide a safe space for players to express themselves, test coping skills, and bounce ideas off each other.
We in no way say or imply we are psychologists or psychiatrists or that our games are a guided group therapy. If you are having psychiatric problems such as depression, suicidal thoughts, PTSD we urge you to seek help through qualified clinicians.
How to get involved
We have new games posting every day and new DMs signing up.
