    Extra Life 2019 and LOTROstream Marathon Info

    Extra Life 2019, Team Standing Stone Games, and Livestream Marathon


    Watch live video from LOTROstream on www.twitch.tv

    Once again Standing Stone Games, players from throughout the LOTRO community, and associated friends and family are raising money for Extra Life!


    These donations are extremely important to people across the globe. Our fundraising through Team Standing Stone Games will help the local Boston Children's Hospital, which provides live-saving treatment and care to children from all over.


    As a token of thanks, we will once again be offering minor incentives to people who donate. Also like usual, if you want in on the giveaways, I need you to send me a quick Private Message on the forums here so I can get your info in one place.


    ###


    All right, without further ado, let's get to the good stuff!


    You can read more information about Extra Life, a nonprofit organization that raises money for Children's Miracle Network affiliated hospitals, by clicking here.


    To donate to the Team: https://www.extra-life.org/team/ssg


    To find my donation page: https://www.extra-life.org/participant/jerrysnook


    To sign up for Extra Life, if you want to raise money yourself: http://www.extra-life.org/


    ANYONE is welcome to join the Standing Stone Games team, provided you are willing to do your part to raise money to help sick kids during this event.


    I have set a goal of raising $10,000 for the Boston Children's Hospital. Last year we were the top fundraiser for the Boston Children's Hospital, and we'd love to do that again.


    ###


    Incentives


    If you donate at least $10, you will be entered into the various LOTRO Point and other drawings that are unlocked by Team Standing Stone Games reaching certain milestones. If you donate to me or another Team member, it counts!


    There's one important thing, though: Extra Life doesn't provide me with enough info to match your donation to a forum/LOTRO community name, and I don't get donation info you donate to other team members, so if you donate and want to get a prize, you MUST fill out the following info and PM it to me on the forums here:


    The name you used for your donation on the Extra Life page:
    Forum name (or Twitter handle, etc.):
    Amount Donated:
    Date of Donation (if you know it):


    Without further ado, here are the incentives!


    Group incentives:


    $2000 - Ten 500 LOTRO Point codes and ten Hero of the Small Folk Title codes will be randomly distributed to people who donate at least $10 to the fundraising effort through a random-number-generated drawing.
    $4000 - Ten more 500 LOTRO Point and ten more Hero of the Small Folk codes will be randomly distributed to folks who donate $10+.
    $6000 - Ten more 500 LOTRO Point and ten Aid to Those In Need Title codes will be randomly distributed to folks who donate $10+.
    $8000 - Ten codes for Enduring Universal Toolkits will be given away randomly to people who have donated at least $10.
    $10000 - We have met our goal! Besides 10 additional codes to give away for Enduring Universal Toolkits, we will also give away two Collector's Editions of the Minas Morgul expansion!


    ALSO: Anyone who donates at least $10 will be entered into a drawing for a Minas Morgul Collector's Edition that we'll award at the end of the fundraiser, provided you've given me your contact info as listed above.


    Further incentives may be announced in the future.


    Individual incentives:


    $5 - Forum Title of your choice, within the community guidelines. PM me with your desired choice. If you already have a custom title, I can add another!
    $10 - Custom Forum Avatar - Let me know what you want your avatar to be, and I'll do my best to make it happen.
    $20 - Two picks from the Community Loot List.
    $30 - Two additional picks from the Community Loot List
    $50 - A code for an Enduring Universal Toolkit, along with two additional picks from the Community Loot List.
    $75 - Two additional codes for an Enduring Universal Toolkit, along with a code for a brand new Title to The Lord of the Rings Online: Aid to Those in Need, which will be delivered as a code that can be applied to your account through the LOTRO Store in-game.


    All incentives are cumulative, so if you donate $50, you also get the benefits of the lower tiers. If you have a specific request based on the level of your donation, just PM me and we'll sort it out. I will be taking donations through November 15th. All giveaways and incentives will take place after November 15th.

    Any chance of getting the team to add the Battle-Worn Steed of the White City back to the store, or the Community Loot list? That one is pretty rare, and interesting companion to the other White City Steed.

    Are the items like titles, pets, and steeds applied to all Characters on the Account, or only one Character gets them?

    it's a commonly known fact that i'm totally blind to the relevant information but: is there a deadline for donations?

    also, just to clarify - if donating enough to get picks from the community loot list, that's for anything from that list? e.g. if someone who doesn't do events wanted a title from the events section (feeling it appropriate for a particular character) there'd be no issue with that?

    Thank you guys for doing this every year. I think it is worth considering swapping in new rewards though, like it or not they definitely have an impact on who donates and how much, and at this rate most of us are donating because we support it, and give the 9th copy of a bear code to a friend.

    But with some new rewards I imagine you'd tap into a new group of people.

    Cordovan buried it in his text: "I will be taking donations through November 15th."
    Be well and good questing, all! See you about Middle Earth another time!

    First off, as of this writing we are nearing $2500, which is an amazing launch! Thank you everyone for your support.

    Ideally everything would be consistent, but the community loot list is a victim of its piecemeal creation over the years. Some things are granted to the account, a bunch of things are just on that character. When it matters, I'm pretty generous with them.

    I formally put November 15th in as an end date, but I'm pretty flexible. Yes on the title question, which is why I put them in there. Most folks will get this title from being a part of an event, but there may well be a legit reason to want one otherwise, and that's fine by me.

    No, this specifically is why I need people to send me a quick PM so I can match your forum name to a donation. I will reply to the private message with the relevant codes that will be redeemed to your account.

    Hi Cord!
    When you donate, do you get the rewards for both LOTRO and DDO?

    Thanks

    There are a subset of donors who are interested in both DDO and LOTRO stuff or a mix of the two, and that is fine by me as well. I appreciate the generosity of people here, and it's almost certainly fine to make sure you get what you'd like within the options available between the two games.

    Cool

    Sounds like a good cause! However:

    'If you have a specific request based on the level of your donation, just PM me and we'll sort it out.'


    That was a colossal mistake on your part! I already have my crazy, overly-demanding request ready > Now I just have to figure out the going rate for Legendary Server PVMP inclusion......

    Thank you everyone for your generous support! We've crossed the $4,500 mark, which is amazing, and well on our way to cross our $10,000 goal!

    I am also (surprisingly) being organized this year so far, and am ahead of the curve on tracking incentives. My hope is to reply to your private message in the next week if you have messaged me so far.

    Maybe you could skim the PM subjects and reply to my message if you think is is worth a response (you may find it's worth your time).... thanks

    Any possibility of the Steed of the Eldar for this list? I missed the VIP gift and it would be awesome to be able to get this for multiple accounts.

    This has come up enough that it is worth mentioning: The things I am able to get you are limited to what is announced in the OP. Every now and then I hear from someone who has long wanted (exclusive or specific in-game thing) and would trade all the stuff for it. I apologize, but I can't really provide special items like that, I need to stick to the pre-approved list.

    This may have been caused by the wording of this line, which may be interpreted as if the list of things is not limited to what is announced in the OP.

    That line is more about, "can I get two X's instead of Y and Z?" not "Can I get this exclusive pre-purchase item no longer available?" Sorry for the confusion.

    My apologies, I misread it as Eldarond suggested. I figured it was at least worth a shot to enquire.

    Edit: Name typo.

    My small donation has been made, and I am delighted to see that the community is so generous, it is warm to the heart!

    Indeed; the warmth and community of the Extra Life effort is enough to coax me out of lurker mode.

    I cannot commend highly enough this endeavour.

    I am so glad to see this, and even more so that your goal is well within sight.

    Thanks! We are in the final stages of scheduling an Extra Life marathon for LOTROstream to run from Noon - Midnight Eastern on Friday, October 25th. I'll have more once I get a few bits locked down.

    Hi Cord!

    Is it OK to share the rewards with friends? e.g. if I had two picks from the list could I have two of the same steed and give one code to a friend?

    Also, if choosing a forum title is it from a set list or can you make up your own unique one?
