I could tell you all about the wonderful work that Extra Life does for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. It would take me hours of work and hundreds of thousands of words to get all that stuff across, so let's take it for a given that they are pretty solid dudes doing some good work.
What we really need to focus on here is how your donations can help out my character and maybe play a little havoc with DM Greg Bilsland's nefarious plans. To wit, here's what your donations can do:
$10—Can I Get a Little Help Here I?
I start the game with a potion of healing.
$25—Take that, Dungeon Master! I
I start the game with a free reroll.
$50—Adventurer’s Care Package I
I start with a +1 magic weapon.
$75—Take that, Dungeon Master! II
I instead start the game with two free rerolls.
I start with 1000 extra
$125—Take that, Dungeon Master! III
I instead start the game with three free rerolls.
$200—Adventurer’s Care Package II
I start with a +1 magic armor.
I start with a randomly determined legendary magic item.
$500—It’s for the Children II
The player’s character instead starts 2 levels higher.
$1000—Adventurer's Miracle Network
The player gets one wish spell to use during the adventures.
But that's not all! As anyone who has watched our live streamed games can tell you, I am a dead serious roleplayer who is really into portraying the strong, serious, tragic types. To help[ shake things up, I am letting the Internet donate money and assign various, ridiculous things to my character:
$50 - I'd Buy That For a Dollar
You get to invent one of my character's catchphrases, which I'll use after any especially notable event in the game or just spout off at random.
$50 - Brought to You By You
You will be an official sponsor of my character, who will wax eloquently about your wonderful traits and how amazing you are whenever the chance comes up.
$100 - What's My Name? (One Available)
You get to name my character. I expect something crazy, ridiculous, and over the top. I will insist that everyone use my full name.
$100 - No God But You (One Available)
My character will worship a creature, object, or deity of your choice or invention as his/her chosen deity. You get to make up three taboos or strange behaviors mandated by your cult that my character must obey.
$200 - Lifeline (One Available)
At some point during the session, I will call you and ask you to make an important decision for my character. My character must do whatever you instruct. You will need to give me a phone number to make this work.
Eric Tam donated $200.00
Oregon PinkRose donated $5.00
Derek Guder donated $10.00
Brian Benoit donated $50.00
10/21/2013 The Roving Band of Misfits is your sponsor. You character will talk about The Roving Band of Misfits, which is your PREVIOUS adventuring party, and your character will constantly talk about how The Roving Band of Misfits did EVERYTHING better than what the current party is doing. "I know we killed the monster in six rounds, but The Roving Band of Misfits would have done it in 4..." That sort of thing.
Anonymous donated $100.00
