Well met, all,

Every year, the Dungeons & Dragons team gets together for a full weekend marathon D&D session (total 56 hours of solid gaming) in order to support Extra-Life, an organization to benefit sick kids.

I'm participating this year, and I need your help to 1) develop the character I'll use during the game, and 2) unlock the super ultimate prize: a brand-new Shadowbane short story.

That's right. SHADOWBANE. A brand-new story, set in Westgate in the interim period between Eye of Justice and Kingdom of Night, the (eventually) forthcoming fourth novel.

How to help? It's easy: go to my page, read over the character options, click "Support Me," and donate. All donations 100% tax deductible, and it supports a really cool cause (gaming to help kids)! And if you feel so inclined, tell your friends! Know someone who likes Shadowbane? This is your opportunity.

Here's my page: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/ESdB

You'll also find several other Realms stars on the D&D Extra-Life team, like Erin Evans and Susan Morris.

Let's do this!

Cheers,
Erik

Just donated $15.

Forgot to mention your character's power: Arcane Wellspring of ABSOLUTE POWER! +1 spell slot (level equal to donation divided by 10).

Good luck. I hope this gets fully funded.

Look for me and my content at EN World (user name: sanishiver).

Also, there will be opportunities to influence the story itself as well.

Check back!

Thanks all! Your generosity toward sick kids, and toward keeping my character alive, AND toward unlocking a new Shadowbane story has been very well received.

I am currently at $200, which is 40% of my goal!

If you haven't already donated, give my page a look: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/ESdB

Tell your friends about my campaign! Hit up your gaming group! Post on Social Media! The more I raise, the more likely I can write the story, and the longer it will be.

Cheers

Holy Updates, Bane-Man!

There is now an option to shape the SHADOWBANE story I'm going to write, as follows:

If you donate $40 or more to my campaign, I will name a character, setting, or item in your honor in the story (assuming you want such a prize). This is in addition to any character development prize you select from the above.

Cheers

Bump!

We're at $390 (78%), but that means the story is still $110 away!

Tell your friends! Hit up your gaming group! Demand SHADOWBANE!

Cheers

An update!

I hit my goal of $500, meaning the story *is* happening! Yes! We did it. You guys are awesome.

The more donations that come in, however, the longer the story will be, and I'll be consulting anyone who pledges over a certain threshold about the contents! (Also, I will *only* be sending the completed story to people who back this campaign at $15 or more, so if you want some more SHADOWBANE, let's do this!)

Also, help me survive the late night game!

Last week to get on this! Currently it's going to be a little over 6,000 words.

The story will be an exclusive, only sent to those who contribute at least $10 to the campaign.

Not too much for a piece of history, is it?

Cheers

I have been away from the Keep for a while because of well... life (school, work, women). I am upset I missed out on this. Do I have any recourse? One question I would really like you to answer is does this short feature Ilira? I find her far more interesting than Shadowbane.
