IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!!

If you're not familiar with me, my name is Alan Patrick and I'm one of the Resource Managers for the D&D Adventurers League. Extra Life does some great work in my local hospitals and let's be honest for a moment: kids need help.

Will you help take care of these kids? I'm not afraid to bribe you with the following rewards... 

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • I am joining thousands of gamers and dedicating this year to playing games and getting donations from friends like YOU!

  • 100% of the donations go to my local hospital: Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

  • Your donation is likely tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. Simply click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to help. I'm neither a lawyer nor an accountant, so be sure to check the fine print if this is important to you. 

  • When you submit your donation, you MUST send me a comment that gives your name, a contact email, and which reward(s) you are requesting in exchange for your donation (if any). If you list yourself as anonymous, I DO NOT know who you are and I cannot contact you. If you're seeking a reward for your donation, you MUST provide your contact email address when you donate.

  • I plan to fulfill cert requests in November, so you might get your certificates before that, but you will have them by the end of the year.

Adventurers League Curios and Wonders 

The magic of the D&D Adventurers League is deep and strange, but sometimes it can be bent toward the greatest of goods. For your donation to help sick kids, I will plumb its darkest depths to find one of these twisted curios that you may add to one of your D&D Adventurers League Forgotten Realms characters. All rewards come as an Adventurer’s League legal certificate for the Forgotten Realms campaign that bares your name and is emailed to you.

$5 Donation - Undercover and "Loving" It

Fai Chen has crafted a one-use token that will force you, and you only, to take the shape of a lemure for 1 minute. (No Limit)

$10 Donation - I Misc You

Fai Chen's most recent shipment of potions had to sail across the Sea of Fallen Stars, where it may or may not have run afoul of the Red Wizards of Thay. The Red Wizards are searching for something beneath the waves, and it seems that they've taken out their frustrations by randomly mixing a bunch of potions together from among Fai Chen's inventory. At this donation level, you'll receive a potion that has at least 1 beneficial effect and at least 1 effect that is... well, who knows. This uses the Potion Miscibility table in the Dungeon Master's Guide. (No Limit; One per Person)

$25 Donation - Definitely Not Goats

Fai Chen is an enterprising salesperson, sure... goats, cats, tressym, all manner of creatures have made their way to and through his menagerie. Even so, his luck with creatures of a more extraordinary nature has not been great - and now his wagons are overrun with abyssal chickens. These "dire chickens" are suitable as both pets and familiars, and should the desire arise they can be consumed. Fai Chen claims that they taste "like fatty chicken" and "maybe, sometimes, just a little bit like my lost profits". There are no refunds for chickens that have been slain or consumed (partially or otherwise).  (No Limit)

$50 Donation - Artifacts of the Blood War

The armies of the Blood War have left tremendous impressions upon the fields of Avernus. Their discarded arms, armor, and possessions are often recovered by agents of Fai Chen or Mahadi and sold to adventurers across the planes. The constant wailing of the damned souls of the Nine Hells have left "impressions" on these trinkets, many of which have taken on qualities not commonly found across the rest of reality. These baubles count as trinkets, and any associated powers that they might possess may have a wide range of effects - which may be good or bad. (No Limit; One per Person)

$50 Donation - Soul Coin

It’s a soul coin: an evil soul minted into a coin and used as currency in the Nine Hells. You can feel the evil seeping from it even now. This item will have "special" uses in season 9 Adventures, especially if you are willing to deal with devils or other interested parties… (No Limit; One per Person)

$100 Donation - Trash Pandas & Abyssal Chickens, Made to Order!

I will work with you craft a specific one of these critters that is a little better than the standard and is specifically tailored to your character. (Limit 5, 4 out of 5 available)

$150 Donation - Fearsome Steed

It is said that some layers of the Nine Hells were pulled from the Prime Material. This observation is given credit by the sleuth of bears that Fai Chen has procured. The bears are changed by their time in the Nine Hells, and may exhibit curious behaviors not seen elsewhere. (Limit 5, 5 out of 5 available) 

$200 Donation - Blood is Thicker

The Red Wizards are upon the Sea of Fallen Stars, and you and your fellow tritons are none too happy about it. Thankfully, you know these waters - and their secrets - better than any stinkin' wizard from the surface! This donation level allows you to create a triton character, and your race does not count against your PHB+1. And still: you've been hunting the Red Wizards, so you may have some extra things that most tritons do not... (Limit 5, 4 out of 5 available)

$250 Donation - You Caught Them All

Many Adventurers League players have a sincere desire to "collect them all", and now you can! This donation level unlocks the ability to play the Ranger's 'beast collector' archetype from Minsc & Boo's Guide to Stuff and Things. This class option does not count against your PHB+1. (Limit 5, 4 out of 5 available)

$10000 Donation - Whatchu Want?!

Look, you're a hero and I'm gonna recognize that. Here's the deal... if you put $10,000 in the donation bin on a single donation, I'm gonna do the following:

  • drive or fly to you
  • cover my own lodging & food
  • run an AL game of your choice over two days (roughly 8-10 hours a day, if needed); we can hammer a hardcover, attack an AL trilogy or series, kill some AOs, whatever. I'll run for a group of up to 6 people.
  • bring swag. What swag? WHO KNOWS?! But there will be swag.

(Limit 1, 1 out of 1 available)

Stretch Goals

As we raise more and more for the kids, I will unlock additional rewards. 

$7,500 - LOCKED!

Every donor gets entered into drawing. I will randomly draw one name for each certificate reward in the campaign and the randomly chosen lucky donor wins a copy of that cert for free! This drawing will occur the Monday after Gamehole Con (11/4/2019).

$10,000 - Locked

I add one more copy of each limited certificate. This means if you missed out on something, you get another shot at that limited certificate.

$12,500 - locked and Hidden

Who knows what's next?

$15,000 - locked and Hidden
