Dungeons & Dragons Extra Life 2016


Hey Extra Lifers! I'm Mike Selinker, the president of Lone Shark Games and the developer of games like Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Unspeakable Words, and Risk Godstorm. I was a creative director on D&D 3rd Edition, and so every year I help out the D&D team with their Extra Life Marathon. I've come as a tiefling axe murderer, a half-gnomish pastry chef, and a half-roc wizard. (You can see me above calling my dad on live TV in a chicken suit using the modified spell "Speak with Dad.")

This year, I'm celebrating the release of another Wizards of the Coast game in conjunction with Lone Shark: the long awaited first expansion to Betrayal at House on the Hill, called Widow's Walk. In honor of this, my character for this D&D game will be Betrayal's Peter Akimoto, noted bug collector and flashlight wielder. Yes, I will time travel in from the modern-day haunted house into a monster-filled D&D dungeon as a totally normal 13-year-old boy.

Now, if that sounds horrifying to subject a child to this monstrous plight, that's where you come in. I need weapons, companions, and items to survive this peril.  You get to pick my deck of cards from Betrayal at House on the Hill and Widow's Walk that I will play . For each $25 donation, you can give  one card  from one of these lists (new cards in italics) to hapless Peter. If it says I HAVE THIS!, I already have it.
