Seeking Crowdfunding Manager for Charitable RPG Campaign

GameBreakers has been working behind the scenes on a live game event to raise money for nonprofits dedicated to fighting injustice and discrimination in the U.S. We can’t do it alone, though.

For over a year now, we’ve been putting together Actual Play videos and other RPG and gaming content as GameBreakers on YouTube. We’ve navigated the learning curve for editing, recording, and publishing videos, and explored many lands in A Bard’s Tale D&D Actual Play series with Struana, Stan and Click Clack. We’ve had a lot of fun, but we see an opportunity to do what we love and give back in a meaningful way.

But … we can’t do it alone. We need someone who can be our Crowdfunding Manager — someone who can help us execute this vision. Interested in learning more about the project and how you can help? Have a marketer, consultant, or agency to recommend for the job? Put a link to your webpage, LinkedIn, etc. in the comments or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter. This is a paying gig!

Tweets from the Edge of Battle (D&D Actual Play)

When we record A Bard’s Tale episodes, two of our D&D players take to Twitter during the session to share reactions and ask advice in-character. Our last session proved to be a nail-biting fight for our heroes and so we wanted to share some of our favorite tweets here. Diamond tweets as @StruanaHardjaw for her dwarven bard and Allison as the human paladin @HammerTimeStan

Change our (D&D) World — LIVE on Saturdays

Trapped on a tropical island prison, our band of characters wake up behind bars with a plan to pull their first heist together. Actually, “plan” might be too strong a word at this point. Their objective? Find the companion to a magical two-piece pendant and escape the islands intact. But first they have to find it, using the half of the pendant they smuggled in (not where you think).

The GameBreakers crew has their work cut out for them and you can see it live on Mixer!

We are collaborating with Fyrebug’s Mixer channel for this D&D 5th edition game. He’s a regular streamer, and this is his first dip into playing Dungeons and Dragons live (Follow Fyrehouse Gaming on Twitter!). We’ll be streaming out this D&D campaign every other Saturday so be sure to tune in!

How You Can Impact Our Game

We’re excited to be on Mixer because we want YOU to impact our game. Want to give the players a bonus to defeat the undead orc? Or do you want to give the zombie a few bonus points? You can do that!

Are things going too smoothly for the players? Are they getting too cocky? You can initiate random events and encounters to spice up the action! This is thanks to Mixer’s interaction capabilities. You create a free account and collect “sparks” just by watching the channel or by purchasing them from Mixer — then you can spend those sparks on changing the game! It’s doesn’t take much to tilt the odds …

Help us create an adventure worthy of a bard’s best treatment!

We will have our next game soon, so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook so you don’t miss it. We’ve only just started, so join the fun as we get this new team out of the island prison and into more adventure.
