Once again, we do battle for charity!

This will be the 3rd annual RPGS For Charities and I wanted to say a few words to everyone before we go crazy with the festivities.  

This year, we had a whole host of issues that have made getting this event off the ground.  However, this is not unlike every year.  Every time we do this, we learn more, get better, and become wiser.  We will get through this and have a BLAST doing it!  Because thats just who we are; we won’t be stopped when there’s good in the world to do!

Preparing once again!

We’re about a month away from running our second annual RPGS for Charities event!  Once again 5 players will try and play a game of Pathfinder for 48 hours for a charity of their choice.  Once again, we will be broadcasting the event on both YouTube and Twitch.tv.  Once again, we’ll be taking donation to either help or hinder the players in their endeavors.  Once again, I’ll be starring at technical metrics at 3 in the morning with half open, unblinking eyes only partly alive all for charity.  That’s right, RPGS for Charities is back and ready to be even better than last year!

Last time, we raised $1,400 total from donations.  I feel good that we can go for $2000 this time!  With all of you helping us out, there is no reason we can hit that goal and EXPLODE past it!  Remember to like the Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, share our posts with family and friends, and, most important of all, watch RPGS for Charities on Saturday September 5th at 11:00 through Monday September 7th at 12:00 noon.  We can do this!

Another event in the works

You watched us play Pathfinder for 48 hours straight.  You helped us earn Toys for Tots at our mini gaming convention.  Now, we plan to blow your minds with what is (as far as we can tell) the first interactive live streamed Vampire LARP!  Not only that, we are inviting YOU to participate!  Stay tuned to find out how you can be immersed in the fictional secret world of vampire kill-or-be-killed politics and subterfuge.  Even if you cant join in, online viewers will have the chance to have an impact on the plot by donating to events charity.  It’ll be an event unlike any other, so join our Facebook page for quick info, or check back here after Wed. Jan 28.  New info will be available then!

RPGS for Christmas Trees event!

That’s right, everyone!  We are Santa’s little helpers this year and we are looking to gather as MANY toys for underprivileged kids as possible!  And what better way then by doing what we love?

We plan on running a mini RPG con over at Blue Ox Games in Greenville NC on Nov. 30th.  We’ll be having games planned all day spanning all kinds of genre including fantasy, scifi, cartoon comedy, and even gothic drama!  If you’ve been itching to try a new system, this is the perfect opportunity to have an experienced GM run the game for you and test it out…

RPG Time!

I know we’ve been a bit quiet recently, but we’ve been hard at work getting some awesome things ready for everyone to enjoy!  Speaking of which, I’m planning on having the first of monthly online games tomorrow evening!  Stay tuned and you could win the chance to play in a game run by me, Chris!

The Aftermath

Well, we finally pulled it off!  After all the days of planning and all the time we spent fussing over details, we finally managed to put on a wonderful event.  At the end, we managed to raise just shy of $1400 dollars.  That, ladies and gentleman, is on the order of $1375 dollars more than even I expected.  I wanted to touch the hearts of gamers everyone and begin to unite us in the common goal of helping and protecting our community.  Please remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel for all of the new events and content that we have planned for you.  Get ready; we are about to change the world!

8 Days and Counting

Tomorrow is field testing day, and we are all super excited!  Here’s hoping we don’t run into any weird technical issues, but even if we do we will find a way to get through it.  Time is running out on buying an awesome RPGs For Charities shirt.  Show your support and pick one up! 

 

Finally, a few of the players have been considering writing up wish lists for when they would like stuff donated to them.  If they follow through, I’ll see if they’ll let us post the lists so you have an idea as to what the players are interested in having donated.  For more immediate needs, I’m sure they’ll send out a plea on the air.  Make sure to tune in to the Twitch channel on Saturday at around 11:00 for the Pre-Game interviews and some setup by the commentators.  Cya there!

A new Poster!!
