Wow, a news post? Really?
Yep, really, and it comes with news even!
Poxnor, of SDA fame, is organizing a Final Fantasy-themed charity marathon, aptly titled Crystals For Life
. At the time of this post, the website that will be showing this marathon will re-direct you to the planning thread
. If you're lazy, the charity we're raising money for is the Canadian division of Juvenile Diabetes Research
. Sounds awesome, right?
Sadly, I'm not 100% certain I have the funds to make the trip to Edmonton to attend. That's where you come in, and I direct your attention to the nav bar on the left. If you're viewing this post from the forum, you'll have to go to the front page
to see it. Any donation is accepted, and any donation you make will go towards torturing me by forcing me to play the games I own
on my stream
, and if you really feel evil, you can do any of the following:5 dollars
gets a game played for an undetermined amount of time (at least an hour, depending on the game maybe longer).10 dollars
gets a special game challenge (Super Metroid RBO, for example, SM low% is excluded from this; see below).25 dollars
gets an FF1 playthrough with the party of your choice.
Other donation challenges gladly accepted!
Megaman X low%: 0/$75
Megaman X2 low%: 0/$125
Megaman X3 low%: 0/$200
Super Metroid low%: 0/$150
Final Fantasy (NES) Solo Thief: 0/$200
Final Fantasy (NES) Solo Black Mage: 0/$200
If you want your donation to go to something specific, leave it in the chip-in comment or post it in this thread. Names will be removed if necessary/requested.
One last thing, if you have any doubts about where your donation is going, it's specifically and only travel costs. Any surplus goes straight to the charity.
(Copied from a post I just made)
Well, it was fun. As some of you may know, I am no longer going. I won't get into why, but rest assured that all the money raised is still going to the event. But because of Chipin being overtaken, I'll probably just get Poxnor's paypal email and just do it directly so there's no fee crap.
Thanks again to everyone that contributed!
