Cancer Fund Drive: Empire of the Petal Throne Winner and More Giveaway Items!
I drew the winner of the Empire of the Petal Throne items Monday evening. This more I received “mention my name” permission from the person who won the EPT items. The EPT items are on their way to Janice Allison. She says she does not play RPGs but will give them “to someone special” in her life who does.
The next giveaway item is a set of all of the issues of The Strategic Review and the first ten issues of Dragon Magazine. The trigger number is $2250. Everyone who donates anytime during this drive is eligible for this giveaway.
Alexi has agreed to extend the deadline for Quest for the Fazzlewood through the end of the donation drive (March 18th) — the original deadline was the end of February 2012. Also, I’m happy to announce that we now have some addition items to give away to the highest donors:
* a 1977 edition of “Classic” Traveller along with first printings of Books 5 through 8. Note that a copy of Book 4: Mercenary is not included. The 1977 edition of the Black box rules is the one without the Third Imperium setting baked into rules. These items are in excellent condition. (I’d like to thank “Jimbo” for donating these items for this giveaway.)
* a complete set of AD&D modules H1-H4 — the Bloodstone Pass modules — these are unused and are in excellent condition (even the thin box for H1 looks almost like new).
The highest donor gets his/her choice of the above sets of items and the second highest donor will receive the other items. In case of ties, a quiz on the Holmes Basic Edition of D&D will be used as a tiebreaker. These “high donor” giveaway items are in addition to the drawing giveaway items. The remaining giveaway items as of this writing are: a set of all of the issues of The Strategic Review and the first ten issues of Dragon Magazine at the $2250 point and if the final goal of $3000 is reached, FEZ I: Valley of Trees, and Quest for the Fazzlewood module as described in this post.
The Leap Month Cancer Fund Drive is on (through March 18, 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)(won by Melson Davis), FEZ 1 (the 1982 Valley of Trees version), the Quest for the Fazzlewood from Metro Detroit Gamers, Empire of the Petal Throne boxed set (won by Janice Allison), 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. The two highest donors (in amount donated) will receive Classic Traveller items or the four Bloodstone Pass modules. These items 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 $1600 dollars have been donated. That’s 53% of our goal and over 71% of the way to the first drawing trigger point of $2250 dollars.
