Raina’s Wings 2010: A big thanks to the RPG community!
by Dan Repperger
As we mentioned on the show, the charity drive for March of Dimes was an incredible success. Our listeners were able to collect about $2,000 for the effort. My hat is off to everyone that donated. You guys demonstrated yet again that gamers are absolutely outstanding individuals. My hat is also off to Nick (aka Necronomitron), his wife, and similar couples everywhere for what they’re doing to make the world a better place.
I’d also like to take the time to highlight the RPG companies that sponsored this event with prize support. They’ve demonstrated their interest in supporting this cause, and I hope you’ll consider them when making your future RPG purchases. I will list them below in alphabetical order.

They also work with Pagan Publishing to develop for the award-winning Delta Green game line and Cthulhu mythos magazine The Unspeakable Oath.
