    Default Extra Life 2020, Team Standing Stone Games, and You!




    Once again Standing Stone Games, players from throughout the DDO community, and associated friends and family are raising money for Extra Life! Our fundraising through Team Standing Stone Games will help the local Boston Children's Hospital, which provides life-saving treatment and care to children from allover the world.



    We hope to raise $20,000 for the Boston Children's Hospital this year, and we're combining forces to hit that goal! Team Standing Stone Games includes both Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online players, developers, and friends. Last year we were the top fundraiser for the Boston Children's Hospital, and we'd love to do that again! Standing Stone Games will be donating an initial $5,000 to kick off our fundraising drive, and we hope you will consider supporting our team as well.

    Why Extra Life?

    All incentives are cumulative, so if you donate $50, you also get the benefits of the lower tiers. If you have a specific request based on the level of your donation, just PM me and we'll sort it out. I will be taking donations through November 14th. All giveaways will take place on November 15th.

    Any chance for the cosmetic pet FEZ to be added to the list? No one has been able to figure out what the actual source of them was but I know a bunch of us would love to get them. https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...9-Fez-for-pets

    First a disclaimer: I gave to the charity because I have always been a big believer in giving back to the community and was behind on my giving for the year anyhow, so I am not angry, upset or otherwise emotional.

    However, I do want to mention that the promises made from Movember a few years ago were never honored after NUMEROUS messages, posts, reminders, etc.

    I always was given a reason why it couldn't be honored and the date was always moved back - but the bottom line is the promise was never met and I was ghosted on it several times, even after I agreed to push back the date again last summer and we agreed on the event.

    I only mention it because it's wrong for a corporation to do a drive like this to give themselves PR and then not live up to the promise they made. Shame on you SSG. I am not upset, but definitely disappointed that someone would use an event like this to make themselves look good and then not honor their commitments.

    That sounds like you are/were due a more complicated reward, but I can say that I received a 500 DDO Points code for Movember 2018 and a snowy owlbear some time earlier.

    Tols.

    Yes i got nothing last year because i said there was nothing on the list i wanted, Yet i still could have been sent the 50 Pork Barrels. I will give my money to charity but never to anything like this again.

    I'm sure that's more of an oversight than anything else. Easily done when there are so many people donating and it's hard to keep track of everything. I got everything for every year I donated. I'm sure Cordovan would happily sort out any oversights. Either way, incentives or not, Extra Life is a very worthy cause

    If I'm trying to donate to a particular staff member, is there a way they can list their forum tag on their profile?

    I don't know any IRL names for y'all, and I'm ok with that

    Looks like a good thing to support, and also cool in-game stuff so win-win

    If you click on Cordovan's name it'll take you to his page (link here). Once on that page, there's a "Send Private Message" button in yellow on the left, just under his name/title

    LMK if that doesn't work for ya

    I will donate US$100 if you, Jerry, will write a post admitting that SSG has let the playing community down by ignoring minor game issues/bugs and the like.

    What say you?

    I wish everyone good luck !

    ( I can't donate because I don't have any credit card, so wishing good luck is all I can do, but it is honestly meant. I have seen too much cancer in my broader family already.)

    My rate of success in getting every donation rewarded is generally great but sure. I will follow up with a few people next Wednesday. Part of the reason I dropped in person meetups for all future charity drives is the year Slarden earned one I had more than 50 to do and simply not enough time to do it while navigating parenting and life so some of those plans totally fell apart and I am sorry about that. Would be happy to get you sorted if we can get the schedules aligned which if I recall was a challenge.

    Thank you, I've had my own experiences with overcommitting with the best of intentions so I can empathize.

    We previously agreed on you leading 10 first-timers on Sarlona through Too Hot Too Handle until we get a completion. You suggested live streaming it which I certainly don't object to. I am ready any time.

    Happy to get you flagged - you can pike while I complete if you are busy.

    Thanks again.

    No hard feelings from my side - I'm happy when the event gathers its money !
