Expanding Our Support For Hurricane Victims

Coffee Ronin Coffee MugYou 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.

Harvey Relief: A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying (Game of Thrones RPG) Sale

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:

Charitable Giving: Support the NRDC, Save Money!

The Gauntlet: Moxtropolis

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!
