The Auction of Many Things, a charity event benefitting the surviving creators of Dungeons & Dragons, took Los Angeles by storm on March 2. Colorful, striking art inspired by the role-playing game was up for bidding, painted and illustrated by an incredible variety of talented artists who all donated their time to honor Dungeons & Dragons and its creators.
Hosted by animation studio Titmouse with the collaboration of Wizards of the Coast, Murder Hobos, and Gary Con, the event and silent auction was a celebration of the classic game and the generous community that has grown around it.

If you want to see what you missed, we have you covered! Take a look at the gallery below to see the celebrities, D&D luminaries, and members of the community who generously supported Jim Ward, Tim Kask, and other TSR, Inc. employees. “These are guys, men and women, who have given so much of themselves for our enjoyment,” said Kyle Newman, one of the auction’s co-sponsors. “It’s a beautiful way to give back.”
