I've pledged to play games and raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!
Here's how it works
Extra Life is a fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
I'm joining thousands of gamers and will be dedicating a day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
100% of the donations go to my local children's hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!
Those who generously donate will receive custom content from me as a "thank you." (See below for details!)
Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation.
All content will be distributed as a downloadable pdf via email. If you donate anonymously, I won't get your email—and I can't send you the content. I will try to distribute all content as soon as possible. Some delays may be expected, depending on volume of requests and other project deadlines. Contact me if you have any questions or specific requests.
ANY DONATION for "EFRE OUSEL" PRIMER AND MAP (PLUS "THE FATE OF BODIL BELWINTLE" FLASH FICTION SHORT STORY **NEW**) - I'm developing an exciting campaign setting for D&D. Efre Ousel (pronounced EF-ray EW-zhul) is a low magic fantasy setting. I created a 24-page primer and a full color map, which should give any player or DM enough information to get started. Eventually, I will make this content available for sale online. But for the first year, this beta version is only available via a donation to Extra Life on this page!
$25 for CUSTOM D&D PERSONALITY TRAIT - Do you need an interesting personality trait for your next D&D character? I'm here to help! I will happily write up a personality trait (not to exceed 50 words) to give your character a necessary jumpstart. Maybe your charmed life has not adequately prepared you for being an adventurer? Or your positive outlook confuses those around you? Perhaps you love it when people are afraid of you? The personality trait will be sent as a certificate, suitable for printing and proudly displaying. Note: I reserve the right to compile these traits and publish them on DMsGuild no sooner than January 1, 2020.
$50 for D&D CHARACTER LEGEND - Is your character a "chosen one," a child of great promise? Do the sages speak of you in hushed tones? Cool. Let me write the legend (not to exceed 100 words). Maybe people believe your character was pulled from an oak tree as an infant? No mother birthed you, except Mother Nature herself. You were raised by druids as the fabled "sheridan," and they believe one day you will give your life to save the forest from some unspeakable evil? The legend I create will be sent as a certificate, suitable for printing and proudly displaying. Note: I reserve the right to compile these legends and publish them on DMsGuild no sooner than January 1, 2020.
$75 for UNIQUE D&D BACKSTORY (Limited Supply: Only 10 Available!) - I will work with you to write your character's backstory (not to exceed 400 words). This backstory will be completely original to your character. Tired of yet another orphan whose parents were killed by orcs, then the orphan grows up to become a paladin who really hates orcs? The backstory I compose might become the prologue for your new favorite character. Become the envy of your gaming group with this backstory! And of course, it will be sent as a certificate, suitable for printing and proudly displaying.

I write a little bit of everything. My work includes the short story collection We Miss All the Great Parties and the burlesque memoir The Wild and Wayward Tales of Tammi True. I have been a regular contributor to D Magazine and Smart Pop Books. I have written op-eds for the Dallas Morning News and Chicago Tribune — as well as comic books and graphic novels in a variety of genres. In the Dungeons & Dragons gaming community, I am best known for instigating the "Red War" within the Adventurers League.
