A Classic Dungeon Crawling Silent Auction – for charity!

Thanks to the kind friends at Beamdog I’m able to up the ante for incentives to my sponsors of my 24hr game-a-thon participation in Play4Paws2 – supporting CaliCan Rescue Foundation.

Butt Kicking, for Goodness!

Baldur’s Gate. Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Icewind Dale. These games hold a special place in my heart. I was at the Edmonton Baldur’s Gate launch party when I was covering it for local TV news. Then later, when I worked for BioWare, I contributed to the marketing and communications efforts of these games and the Infinity Engine that they’re built on.

At the time, there was absolutely nothing else that could bring the true D&D experience, the party-dungeon-crawling-holy-crap-is-that-a-Beholder experience to the computer as these games did.

So, through the help of Beamdog, I’ve got copies of the Enhanced Edition versions of these games. And Virginia, they are enhanced – for example, the Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition:

Running on an upgraded and improved version of the Infinity Engine, Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition includes the entire Baldur’s Gate adventure, the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, and never-before-seen content including a new adventure and three new party members: the Calishite monk Rasaad yn Bashir, Neera the wild mage, and Dorn Il-Khan, the evil blackguard.

I want my BGII and so do you!

Here’s how you can support my fundraising efforts through a silent auction and get one of these amazingly engaging and challenging Dungeons & Dragons world games, specifically:

The silent auction is over at a Facebook event page. The rules of the auction are pretty simple:

  • The auction will be live until I’m done my 24hr game-a-thon at 7pm on February 28th.
  • I’ve created one post per item available.
  • Bid by placing a comment in the item you want to bid on.
  • Highest bid at the time I finish gaming on the 28th claims the auction item.
  • I’ll inform auction winners via FB message and/or reply in the relevant auction.
  • After you’ve been notified, place your contribution at the Play4Paws2 donation page at CanadaHelps.org – https://www.canadahelps.org/en/pages/play4paws2-this-time-its-fur-sonal/
  • I’ll forward the winner’s details on to Beamdog – they’ll contact you regarding claiming your game through Beamdog.

Simple no? So why are you still here and not over there bidding!

Thanks for your support, and see you online on the 27-28th. I’ll need your support and encouragement then too, either through Facebook, Twitter, or maybe even through a livestream… stay tuned!

  1. Tomor­row night, Fri­day night, I’ll be start­ing a 24hr mara­thon gam­ing ses­sion to sup­port my friends at CaliCan Res­cue. I’m one of the folk who’ve accep­ted the Play4Paws2 chal­lenge, so yeah, I’ll be gam­ing, catch­ing up on my gam­ing defi­cit over the last few months
    It’s been years
    Yeah, years since I stayed up ’round the clock. More, actu­ally since I have to work tomor­row morn­ing, so I’ll likely be up over 36 hours. So I’m not sure what to expect, except that as my sleep-deprived brain tries to play games, you can bet that I’ll suck more as the even­ing wears on. Ah well.
    It’s about the Underdog
    Ok, so I’m look­ing for­ward to it, mostly, though the tired bit I’m dread­ing. But it’s not for me I’m doing this, I’m try­ing to raise funds to sup­port the organ­iz­a­tion that brought Bog­art and all the other fosters into our (and oth­ers) lives. It’s about the people in an organ­iz­a­tion that works hard and cares about both the anim­als they res­cue from death row (yes, they pull from kill shel­ters), and they care about the people they match the dogs with. Amaz­ing work, amaz­ing people.
    So yeah, in addi­tion to fos­ter­ing, donat­ing, encour­aging and pro­mot­ing, this is me try­ing to find another way to sup­port them. How ’bout it, can you help? Donate here. Bid on silent auc­tion items here.
    Cheer me on
    I’ll be Tweet­ing, Face­book updat­ing, and occa­sion­ally live stream­ing my gam­ing activ­ity. You can also help me out by keep­ing me going with encour­aging com­ments, posts, tweets, whatever. About 6am Sat­urday morn­ing I’ll need all the sup­port I can get
    Watch me go
    Here’s my gam­ing sched­ule and the Twitch live stream. Not all games will be on com­puter and stream­able, but I may come up with a web­cam solu­tion that will feed to twitch. We’ll see.
    Thanks for your support!
    Really, without you help­ing me, this wouldn’t make sense. I’ve also man­aged to get some sup­port from Bioware and Beam­dog to help you decide to help me. Check out the details here.
