$8K raised by roleplayers through charity product bundles to help in Nepal

The recent charity bundles DTRPG/RPGNow to raise money for earthquake relief in Nepal were both an astounding success. Thank you to anyone reading this who purchased either the Games 4 Nepal (hosted by Kabuki Kaiser) and/or Cardboard Warriors Charity Bundle for Nepal (hosted by Brave Adventures). After some transaction costs the total amount raised and donated to CARE Nepal and Doctors Without Borders were $3320 from the Games 4 Nepal bundle and $4665 from the Cardboard Warriors bundle (US dollars).  When you think about it these are incredible results in terms the support from any community or customer base.  Massive respect to Kabuki Kaiser and Ryan of Brave Adventures for hosting the bundles, hats off to the publishers who donated products and a firm salutary celebratory handshake to every single person who purchased and donated to the cause.  It's also thanks to the OBS sites (DTRPG/RPGNow/WGV etc) that the bundle facility and charity donations were possible.  Hopefully Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and CARE Nepal will be able to put the money to good use in their ongoing disaster relief in earthquake hit Nepal. 

Nice one. :)

Bring a little OSR into your Star Wars Day

For Star Wars (I have a lisp) Day, I couldn't resist a special offer over at Tenkar's Tavern for a copy of White Star - a scifi game which builds on the simplicity of Swords&Wizardry's WhiteBox rules (OD&D simulcrum).  Naturally the Star Knights aren't actually called "Jedi". But we know. ;)  It could be just the terminology, but so far it reminds me a bit of Tales of the Space Princess.  These games go to the heart of cinematic soap opera, conjuring images of swashbuckling Flash Gordon right through to the battered technology in  Star Wars.

May The Way/Force/Psionics Be With You!

Get White Star at a reduced rate:

If code has expired the White Star PDF is here on DTRPG:
