I am joining gamers worldwide on November 6, 2021 to "play it forward" for sick kids. I will be doing a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise funds for my local Children's Miracle Network hospital, Rady's Children's Hospital of San Diego.
While some choose to stream their game day activities, that would just be added strain and stress on me due to my lack of streaming experience. The fact that I don't have a stream following would also mean I'd likely be talking to dead air. Instead, I will be posting updates here, and will have various videos and such on my YouTube channel. Some may be live, some may be recorded and uploaded, but they will all go there and then be linked in to this page.
Please note that my channel is NOT monetized -- I make no money off this, nor would I want to. This is all about using the tools I am comfortable with to share the day with my donors and the community while raising money for a fabulous nonprofit cause.
Extra Life Fundraising Page for Niami DenMother
EQTC Mum YouTube Channel - yeah, that's an ugly link to type in, so if you're telling someone else about it and don't have the link handy, you can tell them to search on "EQTC Mum" on YouTube to find my channel.
Are you outside of the U.S. and want to donate? You can use my Liberapay link. If you do this, please drop me a note at NiamiDenmother over at gmail.com and tell me the name and amount that the donation is under, and I'll pay the amount to the charity out of my PayPal account with a note that it is from you. (I'll cover the currency conversion fees that PayPal will charge for the process out of my own pocket.)
Announcements and Updates
Nov. 2, 2021 - After I hit the $500 donation milestone, I upped my goal to $1000 and promised to color my hair pink for Saturday's gaming marathon if I reached that goal. While it looks like I might fall short of the mark, I have decided to color my hair pink anyway to thank a donor that dropped in a large donation overnight. My headset died yesterday, so after a new one arrives today, I will do a short live video test with it on my YouTube channel to be sure I am ready for Saturday.
Nov. 5, 2021 - I did a before and after recording of my pink hair today, and by the time the video was ready to view on YouTube, I was at the $1000 donation mark. Thank you everyone! Without further ado, here's me making good on my promise of pink hair.
Nov. 5, 2021, 9:00 a.m. - A tour of Vacrul Castle, the home that you can claim in EQ2 with the collector's or premium edition of the Visions of Vetrovia expansion. This was done right before the beta server went down at 9 a.m. this morning. I am now beginning my game day, and will NOT be streaming this part, as the game that I am playing with hubby takes up my full double-wide screen and isn't fully optimized. (I am afraid it would crash me if I tried to add video to the mix.) Icarus is a survival game that has been doing every-other-weekend beta tests, and I've been working on "spouse faction" by running amok with hubby in it. We will be playing it for several hours, then I will be doing a variety of things more suitable for video.
Nov. 5, 2021, 1:50 p.m. - We managed to NOT kill each other in Icarus, which is a good thing! Things like felling a tree so it lands and kills your teammate, or shooting them with the bow and arrow instead of the wolf that was attacking them have been notable deaths over the last couple beta weekends for Icarus. Today, I died twice to wolves and bears before the hubbyogre had to log to prep for a Pathfinder session. I'm inhaling a bit more food, checking my shop in Shop Titans, then I will go run amok in EQ2 and do some more videos.
Nov. 5, 2021, 2:55 p.m. - I went live on YouTube for a little while to talk about Extra Life and to show off the pink hair in better light.
Nov. 5, 2021, 4:30 p.m. - Here is a Beta Tour of Visions of Vetrovia in EQ2.
Nov. 5, 2021, 9:30 p.m. - Well, I've made it past the 12-hour mark! I did a bit more EQ2 beta, a couple videos on Facebook just to update that crowd, and then more Icarus with hubby after dinner. I'm going to head back into EQ2 beta for a bit, then maybe do some No Man's Sky.
Nov. 6, 2021, 1:10 a.m. - I just put up an EQII Extreme Hoarding video showing off the furniture giveaway dungeons that we have created on the Test server with some of our surplus furniture. Nothing too earth-shaking, just something sill to help me keep going at this late hour. I may end up napping in a couple hours, and finishing off the 24-hour marathon after that. Time will tell if I get my second wind or not.
Nov. 6, 2021, 3:35 a.m. - My body says I have had enough. I am going to go get some sleep and game the remaining 5.5 hours afterwards.
Nov. 6, 2021, 12:50 p.m. - What is better than finishing up an Extra Life gaming marathon? Finishing it up while playing with my beloved hubby! I'll have a final video later in the day once we're done.
Nov. 6, 2021, 6:00 p.m. - We are done running amok, just in time for my energy levels to bottom out. I raised $1100 for Extra Life, which is a great feeling, and I want to thank everyone who supported me. I did a quick final last video to thank everyone, and to also mention a bit of a teaser from Kander. I will share it here, as well ...
