    Default Team DDO and Movember 2016!


    Hello everyone, and welcome to Movember 2016! This is now the fourth year that I've raised money publicly for men's health through the Movember Foundation in the Dungeons & Dragons Online community. Similar to previous years, I will be offering some nominal incentives to DDO peeps who wish to donate at least a few bucks.

    Every year I am encouraged to continue this effort through private and public messages from you. I hear about how these cancers have impacted the lives of loved ones, family members, even yourself. I've found the Movember Foundation to be quite transparent in detailing how this money is spent, and have been proud to see how us D&D folks can get our name out there on the national stage. I hope you are willing to donate this year, but I'm also hoping to see some of YOU join Team DDO!

    To find my donation page: http://mobro.co/jerrysnook

    To find Team DDO: http://moteam.co/ddo

    Team DDO is open to everyone! If you are taking part in Movember, consider joining the team.

    The basic gimmick of Movember is us participatin' dudes shave our faces on November 1st, then grow only a mustache for the month, to call awareness to men's health issues and raise money for the campaign. Ladies and folks who for whatever reason don't grow facial hair can participate as well, either by just raising money, or by taking part in the Move program. Let's face it, the shaven Cordovan ain't winning any beauty prizes, but hey - it's all good. It's a mere month, and well worth it.

    If you donate at least $2, you will be entered into the various drawings that are unlocked by Team DDO reaching certain milestones. If you donate to me or another Team DDO member, it counts!

    There's one important thing, though: Movember doesn't really provide me with enough info to match your donation name to a forum/DDO community name, so if you donate and want to get a prize, please fill this out and PM it to me on the forums here:

    Donation name:
    Forum name (or Twitter handle, etc.):
    Character Name to receive the prize:
    Server the character is on:
    Without further ado, here are the incentives! My goal is to raise $3,000 this year for Movember:

    Group incentives:

    $500 - Ten 500 Turbine Point codes will be randomly distributed to people who donate at least $2 to the fundraising effort through a random number generated drawing.
    $1000 - Ten picks from the Community Loot List will be randomly sent to anyone who donates at least $2.
    $1500 - Ten more 500 Turbine Point codes will be randomly distributed to folks who donate $2+.
    $2000 - Ten more picks from the Community Loot List for $2+ donors.
    $2500 - Twenty further random 500 TP codes for $2+ donors!
    $3000 - The big event! If we hit this milestone, me + whoever else I can rope in from the dev team (no promises other than me) will take part in an event on every server, times/locations to be determined. This will be us celebrating with you + whatever else we can make happen!

    Individual incentives:

    $10 - Forum Title of your choice, within the community guidelines. PM me with your desired choice. If you already have a custom title, I can add another!
    $20 - Custom Forum Avatar - Let me know what you want your avatar to be, and I'll do my best to make it happen.
    $30 - Personal Picks from the Community Loot List, sent to two characters of yours on whatever server(s) you want.
    $50 - I will be honored to run with you in-game for a couple of hours, whatever server and character levels you want. We'll have to work out a time that makes sense for both of us, but it's worked out fine in previous years.
    $100 - I will be honored to host an event on your guild's airship. While there are certain rules I cannot break (things that hurt the game world, giving out named loot, leveling people up, etc. - mostly common sense stuff), I will be able to drop some items from the Community Loot List and do a few giveaways for the guild. I will of course be open to any and all Q&A as well.

    All incentives are cumulative, so if you donate $30, you also get the benefits of the $20+$10 tiers.




    Sincerely,

    Cool Go Team-DDO


    Thank you Cordovan for the warn welcome to Movember 2016! This is my second year that I'll be raising money publicly for men's health through the Movember Foundation in the Dungeons & Dragons Online community.

    Two years I have been encouraged to continue this effort due to how these cancers have impacted the lives of loved ones and family members. I also appreciate the Movember Foundation's willingness to be quite transparent in detailing how this money is spent, and have been proud to see how us D&D folks can get our name out there on the national stage. I hope you are willing to donate this year, but I'm also hoping to see some of YOU join Team DDO!

    Since I cannot grow a mustache, my older brother, George, has gracefully allowed me to use his face for the month of Movember. Ladies, if you have a man in your life who would be wiling to get in on this fundraiser, then get them shaving and add your name to Team DDO!!!!!!! I love my brother and want to thank him personally, in advance, for this opportunity to spread health awareness for male types of cancer and mental awareness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay, probably could have worded that better, but running on 4 hours of sleep and it was early

    Does anybody know if the Scary Festival Mask recharges?

    I'd love to donate some cash but would be disappointed if I then pick some item that behaves differently then expected.

    DDOwiki indicates that the item does not recharge (although I'm not sure why). Guess it's mostly just a cosmetic.

    It should recharge just fine. It's an old old item, so it's missing the recharge text.

    Looking at the team page...

    I see a dearth of photos from folk other than Cordo - where's the rest of you?! Make with the progress reports!

    I just wanted to remind folks that I'm doing a 12-hour livestream from Noon to Midnight on Saturday, November 12th to raise money for Movember. It'll be 12 hours of nonstop DDO! Trying to decide whether to server-hop or perhaps focus on leveling up a character to marathon and see how far I get. It'll be on Twitch.tv/DDOstream.

    I know this is DDO and not LotRO, but I don't have an account over there, and thought it was still fitting *g*
