    Cool Extra Life Challenge 1-95 in 100 hours!

    Next Stream: Wednesday 25th June - 12:00pm UK Time
    Goal: $665 / $1,000
    Hello all!

    I am joining Team Turbine for Extra Life 2014. If you aren't aware of Extra Life, they are a charity focussed on raising money for sick children - mainly through gaming.

    To kick off my fund-raising, I am setting a challenge to myself for creating and levelling a new character from 1-95 in 100 hours. I will be levelling on Eldar, so if you want to join me at any point you are more than welcome to tag along. I will be streaming each session on my twitch channel throughout so you'll be able to follow me in the process.

    Please help support Extra Life by making a donation directly (Extra Life Donations). There are some incentives for high donations listed below, but donations can be of any amount and all are appreciated.

    For the challenge, I have made a dwarf champion, his name is Dhorv.

    Cheers, Galu.



    Incentives
    To say thank you for donating, I am offering the following incentives for this challenge!

    $15.00 (SUPER EASY) (unlimited availability)
    Players who donate $15 or more will be entered into a raffle to win one of three 1,000 Turbine Points codes (a huge thank you to Sapience for these). We only get these codes, however, if I reach my goal - so get donating (note: To qualify for entry you will also need a LotRO account, and to provide an email address when submitting your donation so I am able to contact you should you win).

    $25.00 (INTERMEDIATE) (unlimited availability)
    A chance to win 1,000 Turbine points, plus your name and message will appear in the next live stream. Be sure to include your character name and server if you are a Lotro player. These will be scrolled across the screen repeatedly for the duration of the stream.

    $100.00 (EXPERT) (limited availability)
    A chance to win 1,000 Turbine points, your name and message in the stream, plus a Legendary Item named after you. Please include your character name for the item. You will be assigned a legendary item slot and each item that goes into that slot will be named after you.

    $500.00 (INSANITY) (limited availability)
    A chance to win 1,000 Turbine points, your name and message in the stream, plus an entire stream dedicated to you - where you get to dictate what I do for the stream. Want to see something specific, or just plain old torture me, this is the one to go for. Please make sure you include your email address when donating so I can contact you to arrange the stream.

    Today's stream was about ~9 hours long and I got the dwarf to level 20. Was exhausting but fun! Thanks to all who joined in the twitch to watch and chat. Looking forward to the next one already. If you're on Twitch and follow me, you'll be notified whenever I go online - incase I don't manage to post here hehe. Raised $50 so far but really want to blow it out of the water, so please join in, watch, donate and share with your friends. Thank you.

    Just finished today's streaming session. I'm about 16.5 hours through out of the 100, and I've now reached level 30. It feels like I'm on a good roll so far, so let's hope I can keep it up

    I have some exciting news regarding the incentives for donating. All players who donate $15 or more will be entered into a raffle when I reach my goal ($1000), and three donators will win 1,000 Turbine Points each. I'd like to say a huge thank you to Sapience for supplying me with the codes to be able to do this. So please, help support Extra Life and donate today

    I like the cut of your jib. I'll donate when I'm able, and good luck with the challenge!
    If you give away gold bars, someone will complain they're too heavy.

    Just passed the 24 hour mark! That's a whole day's worth of levelling Dhorv is now level 36 and gradually working his way through Evendim.
    Thanks to all the people who've been following the stream so far, and who've been helping in-game.

    Remember this is all to try and raise money for Extra Life.

    Just saw this thread and just made my donation. Good luck on your challenge. A worthy cause.

    Just a quick question - are you using XP enhancements to level or going "hard-core" ?

    Look forward to catching up on your Twitch streams

    Thank you

    I was given a few XP tomes which I used, although I think I have a couple left. The only xp boost I'm really relying on is the pocket item from the expansion pre-orders. Other than that it's just plain-old questing etc.

    Next stream begins in about 30 mins.

    Goal: $640 / $1,000

    At level 47 now, so at the half-way-ish mark. About 44 hours in so making good pace. Next stream will be tomorrow.

    Today I demonstrated an early version of the plugin which a player will have named after them (if they choose the 'Elite' tier when making a donation to Extra Life). I will be demonstrating it again in another stream as it gets updated. The working title is 'pets' and it serves as a pet manager for players who like to collect them. You'll be able to browse the available pets and use the shortcuts to summon those you have, find out information about where they come from, and be able to rename them (for those who have trouble remembering the slash command).

    Can you create a highlight video out of this? I couldn't find it in the stream.

    Never mind, I saw it in today's stream at 2:44:00.

    I also enjoyed your globalff trolling after the plugin demo.

    Will be back to streaming tomorrow. Had to take a few days off while preparing Eldar for it's SHIELD run. Now that's out of the way I can carry on with my dwarf levelling Hope to see some of you in the stream.
