Hey howdy everyone,
We had a rough few weeks. First, Zach and his partner ended up in the hospital. Then they went home and like 12 hours later, Zach’s partner’s dad needed to go the hospital to have surgery. Everyone is okay, thankfully, and we’ll have a functioning creative team again soon enough.
We’re going to back down to one comic a week while we’re fulfilling the Kickstarter, which will also help Zach to get used to being home and among stability again, since we were originally planning twice a week updates while also doing Kickstarter work.
In the meantime, if you’re following the Arcana Check on Patreon, we’ve put out Humanity Revisited. That sounds like an impressively large or philosophical project, but it’s actually a subrace for D&D 5e. It’s my favorite so far of the materials we released; the PHB humans have always felt really lacking. Either you play the generic vanilla race, or else you get to customize your race and start with a feat, which is more like a tax on power gamers than a race. So I’m introducing Common Humans, Wanderers, Wastelanders, and Hill Folk as subraces of humanity, and retooling what, exactly, humans are good at — namely, living through things. Click the doodle.
This Community Showcase is a guest post written by Benjamin Maier.
On November 3rd my friends and I get together, as we do on a yearly basis, and we play Dungeons & Dragons for 24 (technically 25!) hours straight. We do this to raise money for kids who need it. Every year we put the clarion call out to our friends, family, and even the people we don’t really know, in the hopes that that you might have some money to spare in order to help a good cause.
At the same time we Twitch stream our sessions for your entertainment and our personal detriment, because let’s face it, we’re really bad at improvisation and that makes for great streaming. We all do this to take a game, the relationships it has helped us forge, and our mutual desire to do something positive and give back to our community. So I ask, please donate if you can. We’ll once again have some interactive menus allowing those viewing on Twitch to drastically affect the games in play. If you can’t donate, please just spread the word, as every little bit helps. Or come join in the games and see what all the fuss is about.
Here’s how it works:
Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
On Game Day (Nov. 3rd), I will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
100% of the donations go to my local hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!
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.
