    Hey guys just letting everyone know I've prepared (or rather in the process of preparing) a Halloween inspired 5th ed DnD game known as "Tomb of Horrors". I can accomidate up to 5 people, and the start time is flexable (after dark of corse). It's a very atmospheric, role play-heavy game, so if you're unfamilliar with how to play, no worries. It's just my way of contributing. Anyone interested, please post a reply so we can figure out the when, and what kind of character you'd like to play.

      Not quite sure just yet. Def in the evening, as the event gets closer I'll figure that out.

      Ugh, looks like I won't have this game ready to go by this weekend. Sorry. But I will be at the event, adding my particular nuttiness to whatever's going on. Fiasco anyone?

    Right, just signed up. I'd like to run at least one game of No Country For Old Kobolds (keep your village alive in the face of rampaging adventurers) and possibly also a standard Dungeon World game, but still have to figure out the timing.

    I'd like to make two nations to everyone in the geeks. If you'd like to be counted amongst that number, please send me the link to your particular donation page.

    Is there a way to make a contribution to the WG TEAM, as supposed to individual people? I know a few of you raising funds and don't want to leave anyone out.

    1 · October 2, 2014

    • Dina

      Unfortunately there's no catch-all, so you'd have to pick one person.


      October 2, 2014

    • Dina

      ...or donate a few $$ to different people if you don't want to leave anyone out!
