2019 Fundraising Drive

To fund this year’s season closers, and especially the Maelstrom campaign closer, we are opening a fundraising drive. Funds collected will go towards site fees, as well as any additional costs that we incur in making these closing events as amazing as possible.

We have some fantastic incentives available for those of you who donate.

First off, all donations will receive goblin stamps at a higher rate than our usual 5:1. GS will be rewarded as follows:
  • Up to $50 – 6:1
  • $50-$99 – 8:1
  • $100 or more – 10:1
Second, the early bird is going to get some Dragon Stamps! The first 10 people to donate to the fundraiser altogether, and the first person to donate from each chapter, will get 30 Dragon Stamps.

Finally, we’ve put together some awesome goodies to reward those of you who donate the most. The top 10 20 donors will get their choice (in descending order of donation amount) of one of the following items. For each additional 5 donors to the fundraiser, we will add another slot to the top donors list, and another reward item to match. We've also added a few extra LCO items to make sure all our top donors get a prize they can make use of.
  • 100 Dragon Stamps
  • An original pencil sketch of their character by A. G. Worley
  • An original pencil sketch of their character by A. G. Worley
  • An original pencil sketch of their character by A. G. Worley

  • LCO Life 2/ever, cast on an item of your choice
  • LCO Eviscerate 3/ever, cast on an item of your choice

This fundraiser will run through October 20, 2019.

This is the last month to buy back events in June, and we had an event every weekend that month, so there’s sure to be something you can blanket! To make sure you don’t miss this opportunity, we’re committing to applying Goblin Stamps for any donation received by September 29th by the end of that day. Other GS rewards will be applied as throughout the fundraiser, and the rest of the rewards will be sent out once it ends.

Please make donations via PayPal to paypal@alliancesf.net. Be sure to note your name, and the email you use for the CMA, as well as your home chapter.
Thank you in advance for your donations, and for helping us end our season – and the Maelstrom campaign – with a bang!


Now, for a bit of fine print:
  • Each donor can only get one of the “early bird” rewards. So if someone from the first 10 donors is from Seattle, for instance, the Seattle reward will remain open and the next person from that chapter who donates will get the reward. Additionally, players who play in multiple chapters can only get one location reward – please keep it fun and use the chapter you play in the most.
  • Order of donations will be determined by PayPal receipts, as sent from PayPal to ASF.

Here is some more information about the fabulous donation incentives we've got available. All of these items are the handiwork of our ASF players.

Character Portraits by A.G. Worley
Here are a few examples of Andrew's work, and you can see more on his Facebook page. For this fundraiser, he'll create a pencil sketch or a watercolor portrait of the characters of some of our donors.

Character Portrait by Emily Bailey
For one of our donors, Emily will create their choice of a pencil sketch or a pen-and-ink drawing of their character. Here are just a few of her amazing works.

Character Photography by Alex Shamis
These are just a few of the portraits Alex has done of Alliance members. You can see more of his work on his website, Take Two Studios. Alex will do an in-character photo shoot for one of our donors. Because this needs to be in person, we're limiting this to players local to the SF Bay Area (unless you make alternate arrangements with Alex.)

Raven Shaman Belt by Greg Ruddy
You can see more of Greg's leatherwork on the Facebook page for his shop, Asphodel's Attic. One donor will receive a handcrafted kidney belt. This belt was a part of our Maelstrom campaign, and is in lightly used but still beautiful condition.

Leather Belt Pouch by Miles Atherton
For one of our donors, Miles will craft a semi-custom leather belt pouch similar to the one you see here.

6 donations are already in! We've added the LCO Arcane Armor to the prize pool, and there's a new prize to be added when we get another 4 donors. Keep your eyes on the first post -- I'll be updating as we go there.

What if we don't have paypal? Is there another way to donate, such as with Zelle or Venmo?

Unfortunately PayPal is all we’ve got at the moment. I’ll see what we can do. Stand by!

Thanks! And also, to make sure I'm reading it correctly... is that $6 to one GS? Or 6 GS to $1?

Up to 40 donors! Y'all are amazing! Thank you so much for your contributions.

We're done unlocking new prizes, but the fundraiser will remain open through our October closer. Prize winners will be announced at that time.

Also, a slight addition to the fine print, since it looks like it will become relevant: ties in the top donor list will be broken by who was first to donate.

Just a reminder this fundraiser will run through October 20, 2019. So if you are looking for goblin stamps in San Francisco, this fundraiser will only be available for a couple days more.

The fundraiser is closed! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated!

Goblin Stamps should be applied to your CMA accounts very soon, if they aren't already. In the next couple of days, we'll be contacting our top winners to select their prizes, and working on getting Dragon Stamps applied.

We just finished our Maelstrom closer. Thank you again for everyone who donated — this event would not have been what it was without your generosity.

Just a quick update: it is taking longer than expected to get through our list of top donors and have everyone pick their rewards than expected. You have not been forgotten!

GS rewards have been applied, and DS rewards have been submitted to National. If you have issues with either of these please get in touch so we can get those fixed.
