Japan Earthquake 2011


(Help Japan)

Yes, gamers are once again stepping up to contribute to relief efforts, this time to aid in the aftermath of the earthquake in Japan. This time, it is a bit more peacemeal, but there are several ways in which you can donate AND maybe pick up a few goodies along the way.

Here are the various gaming-related opportunities to give that I've found so far. Pick those that appeal, but do give something. Please. Our Japanese friends are in need. Click on the image(s) of choice.

It's a bit hard to calculate the total raised by the various OBS efforts, but it's over $54,000!!! Wow! Thank you to everyone involved: be you a publisher, a purchaser or the OBS team who hung it all together.

Paizo Publishing Paizo Publishing organised an auction of autographed books and original artwork: raising a magnificent $4016.
OBS $5 to the Red Cross Quick off the mark as ever, OBS made it simplicity itself to give $5 to the Red Cross. This collection is now closed, I'll post the figure raised once I know it myself - but a big Thank You to everyone who gave!
Ronin: Oriental Adventures Highmoon Games has rushed out a special edition of their Ronin: Oriental Adventures OGL game, the $5 cost being donated to the Red Cross. A suitable choice, thanks!

Point of Insanity Game Studio Point of Insanity Game Studio put together a special bundle of their product, for a $6 donation you got the Action Planet RPG, the MADS Quickstart and a copy of Mazes & Missions... worth $10 in total. This offer is now closed, but thanks, guys!
Modern Mediaeval Sword's Edge Publishing have re-issued their magnificent D&D 3e product which brought the technology of the Medieval and early Renaissance period to your game, a snip at $5 even without the warm glow from knowing your money is going to help the Red Cross.
Sword's Edge Press And if that were not enough, Sword's Edge Publishing have also put together a bundle, donate $5 and get their Albenistan: Election Day (Modern Dispatch 113) (a cracking little adventure!), Arcane Kingdoms (D&D 3e setting), Canada's Combined Security Reconnaissance Section for D20 Modern, For Simple Coin - some good fiction, Khorforjan Gambit (another fine adventure), Modern Dispatch (#104): Line Zero AND Modern Dispatch 120: Cyber-state Avatar Toolkit - over $10-worth of classic stuff, much of which has not been available for a while... yet another reason to dive in and grab it now!
