The first $750 goal in our $3000 Leap Month RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund Drive has been reached. Unfortunately, I did not think to check email during my Wilderlands game this afternoon or I could have held the drawing for the copy of Daystar Media edition of Pharaoh then. I should be able to get a couple of my players to come tomorrow evening (or Tuesday at the latest) to do the drawing then. So there is still a small amount of time to donate and still get in on the first drawing (three more are to come). See the Leap Month RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund Drive and Giveaway post for more details.
Speaking of my Sunday game, there is a lot of interest in the Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery game from the players in the game — perhaps even enough interest to suspend our long running Wilderlands campaign to run some play-test games in a post-Conan Hyborian setting.
The Leap Month Cancer Fund Drive is on (through the end of February 2012). Every $10 donated gives you one chance to win a one of five items described in the above-linked post: Daystar West Media edition of Pharaoh (1980), FEZ 1 (the 1982 Valley of Trees version), the Quest for the Fazzlewood from Metro Detroit Gamers, Empire of the Petal Throne boxed set, and a set of all of the issues of The Strategic Review and the first ten issues of Dragon Magazine. Multiple drawings will be held as described in the above linked post. This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetrpoRoleplaying Cancer Fund. To get help us pay our cancer treatment related bills (and to get access to some special downloads and possibly the above mentioned Firecracker items), send a donation in any amount — small or large — to me via Paypal. Thank you!
As of the time of this post $815 dollars have been donated. That’s 27% of our goal and over 100% of the way to the first drawing trigger point of $750 dollars. The drawing for the Daystar West Media edition of Pharaoh is tentatively planned for Monday evening (Feb 6). Donate now for a chance at this item (and chances at later items).
