Gamers vs Hellfire: Emergency Fund Raiser
One thing we never wanted to do with Games & Tea was to turn it into a great big advertising board. We enjoy playing games, and we'll talk honestly about our opinions on them, and leave it up to our readers whether they want to check these games out or not. What we'll never do is shamelessly plug a game for no good reason, or flat out tell you "please buy this!" - that's quite simply not who we are.
However, we are going to bend that rule slightly on this occasion, and it's purely for a really good cause.
The folks over at StoryWeaver have put together a bundle of one of their flagship RPG products - Rapture - to help raise money for the Bush Fire Appeal, working to combat the devastation caused by the bush fires in Australia. This bundle contains $52 worth of RPG product, and is being sold as a special offer for just $10 here, with 100% of the proceeds going to the appeal.
Of course it'd be nice if folks just blindly threw their $10 in for the good cause, but it's only human to want to know what you're spending your money on. Here at Games & Tea we still haven't had a crack at Rapture yet, seeing as we're still dipping our toes into the roleplay water with Privateer Press' Iron Kingd.oms, but our friends over at our favourite hobby blog The Hobbynomicon have been trying it out, and The CausticTriton's thoughts on the system can be found in one of their articles here.
And if you still need convincing, here's a video review on the system from Let's Level Up
So that's our little advertisement/charity drive over with. If you're a roleplay fan and fancy trying out a new system, then why not gamble 10 measly dollars and support a good cause whilst you're at it? You might just feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
