We are pleased to have three books nominated for Origins Awards. Atlas of Earth-Prime, Blue Rose Narrator’s Kit, and Blue Rose: The AGE RPG of Romantic Fantasy are all in the running this year. To celebrate, we’ve put all three books, along with the Mutants & Masterminds Deluxe Hero’s Handbook, on sale at 20% off, in both print and PDF formats, in our Green Ronin Online Store. These prices will also be in effect at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio later this week. If you’re there, stop by and see us in booth #649.
Through Tuesday, March 13th, you can get a terrific deal on Dragon Age RPG and Fantasy AGE RPG PDFs at Bundle of Holding. For just $9.95 you can get the Starter Collection, but you might as well meet or exceed the threshold (level up) price of (currently) just $24.72, and unlock $75 more worth of AGE System PDFs. Even better, 10% of your payment (after payment gateway fees) goes to the Maria Fund, a charity “with a mission to support frontline efforts to fulfill immediate relief needs and to organize for an equitable Puerto Rico over the long term.”
Our previous sale, benefiting the Trevor Project, ran a while longer than we intended, but generated a nice amount to donate to them. Our new sale in our Charitable Giving Initiative benefits the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
While the sale runs, both the print and PDF versions of three Mutants & Masterminds books, Deluxe Hero’s Handbook, Atlas of Earth-Prime, and Freedom City, are on sale for $5 off, and for each sale item sold we will donate $10 to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
About the Thurgood Marshall College Fund: Established in 1987, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) is the nation’s largest organization exclusively representing the Black College Community. TMCF member-schools include the publicly-supported Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs). Publicly-supported HBCUs enroll over 80% of all students attending HBCUs. Through scholarships, capacity building and research initiatives, innovative programs, and strategic partnerships, TMCF is a vital resource in the K-12 and higher education space. The organization is also a source for top employers seeking top talent for competitive internships and good jobs.
You probably know about our Green Ronin Online Store, but we have a second online store now. Our new Green Ronin Gift Shop features “swag,” like t-shirts, coffee mugs, poster maps, and more, bearing logos and art from our games. This store is separate from the Green Ronin Online Store for logistical reasons, and its products are printed and fulfilled on demand by the fine folks at Printful.
We are currently raising money in support of the victims of Hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. For a limited time, Fantasy AGE Basic Rulebook and the Fantasy AGE Bestiary are on sale in our Green Ronin Online Store at 10% off, and after the promotion, we will tally up the sales of those two books and donate 20% of proceeds to Hurricane Maria Community Relief and Recovery Fund.
Now we’ve decided to go one step further: Starting now, for the duration of the sale, we will donate all but $1 of the profits of every sale made in our Green Ronin Gift Shop to the same fund. There’s never been a better time to get a framed poster map of Freeport or a Coffee Ronin coffee mug.
Please check out the Green Ronin Gift Shop today, and help us help our fellow Americans in need.
Our hearts go out to everyone in Harvey’s path. We are shocked by the photos and footage we’ve seen of the flooding in Texas in the wake of the storm, and some of our friends and family have been directly affected. For our latest Charitable Giving Initiative campaign, we have placed all products in our A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying line at 10% off in our Green Ronin Online Store. When you shop the sale, we will donate 20% of proceeds to the Houston Food Bank and Houston Humane Society.
If you want to help Harvey survivors more, you can donate directly to these two organizations, or find another worthy charity to support as well:
Most people in Westeros are more concerned about not dying than they are concerned about the planet not dying. Samwell Tarly cares about everything. And there’s also… Well, maybe nobody else in Westeros, but the planet has you!
For a limited time, you can get A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying, A Game of Thrones Edition for just $35 as a full-color hardback, and just $15 in full-color PDF format, through our Green Ronin Online Store. For each of these two products sold at this discount, Green Ronin Publishing will donate $10 to the Natural Resource Defense Council.
NRDC “combine[s] the power of more than two million members and online activists with the expertise of some 500 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild.”
Sam Tarly likes nice people, and books, and the world. Be nice like Sam, get books at a discount, and help NRDC save the world!
Hot on the heels of a very successful literary Humble RPG Book Bundle, in which a whole lot of charitable folks got a whole lot of awesome eBooks for great prices while supporting a great cause, we have two more books in another such bundle. Our pals at Frog God Games and Kobold Press have posted a whole bunch of Pathifnder goodness, along with Freeport: The City of Adventure and the Advanced Bestiary, in this new bundle. Get thousands of pages of electronic gaming books for a great price, while supporting the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
This year Team Green Ronin is happy to be participating in The Gauntlet 2015, a friendly gaming-for-charity event that will pit us against other Seattle-area teams such as reigning champs Paizo Publishing, Bungie Studios, the Lady Planeswalker Society, GeekGirlCon, Valve, and many others in a tabletop game tournament on May 16th. Here’s a little more information from the organizers’ page:
The Gauntlet: Moxtropolis is a fundraising tournament for the benefit of Hopelink, a charity whose mission is to support homeless and low-income families on their way to self-sufficiency. On May 16th, 2015, teams will gather to compete in a contest of skill and chance at Mox Boarding House in Bellevue, WA.
Teams of four, from local community groups and businesses, will raise donations for Hopelink. These donations will unlock power-ups to aid them as they compete in a series of table top games to win glory, and victoriously hoist the Gauntlet! This event is sponsored by ENGAGE – Card Kingdom and Mox Boarding House’s charitable giving program.
Bungie has raised an incredible $23,546 as of this writing. Green Ronin’s goal is a little more modest. Team members Chris Pramas, Donna Prior, Nicole Lindroos and honorary-Ronin Ray Winninger all have individual fundraising pages and goals that tie back to the team’s page. Nicole set her personal goal at $3000 only to learn that last year many teams didn’t even raise that amount. However, Nicole responded with, “I do not [fool] around when I raise money for charity.”
Just $3.00 provides a meal for a family of four through Hopelink’s program. Consider a small donation if you can, and please help Team Green Ronin spread the word. Thanks!
We’ll have many great events; RPGA D&D Adventurers League, Pathfinder Society, Shadowrun Missions, Fantasy Age, and our own Living D&D 5E and Pathfinder Campaigns, as well as independent RPGs.
Also planned are historical, sci-fi, and modern historical wargaming, card and board games, COSPlay, and more.
