Malaysia Flood Relief Bundle on itch.io Bounds Past Goal, Spreads the Help: “Malaysia has experienced severe rainstorms and flash flooding since 17 December 2021, leaving many people stranded and vulnerable. As such, this bundle aims to raise funds for flood relief efforts in Malaysia due to these recent floods.

Proceeds from this bundle will go to Mercy Malaysia‘s Flood Relief fund.

This bundle collects several games from Malaysian tabletop game designers (Aaron Lim, Alyssa Yeo, Centaur Games, Kristen Chin, Nana, Rick Chia, Samuel Mui Shen Ern, Tun Kai Poh, Valis Teoh and Zuhayri Mohamed), who have generously donated their games to support this fundraising effort. Please do support their games and gamemaking if you are able to.” As of this writing the Bundle has surpassed the $18,000 mark, more than 1800% of its original goal. Also, because the Philippines have been hit hard by weather as well since the Bundle began, it is helping out the Tulong Kabataan Network.

Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Bundles on DriveThruRPG: Donating all proceeds to the Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund to help those impacted by the severe weather on December 10th, the Bundles come in a variety of sizes and contents. While a Pay-What-You-Want option allows for direct donations, there is a ‘pocket sized game’ Bundle, a system-agnostic Bundle, and a MEGA Bundle with full games and system specific supplements, each ‘selling’ their contents for 90% or more off. 

Discussion of the Week

It’s the holidays, so the office has been given over to the winter fae – stay safe, have a good time, and in the spirit of the season consider helping giving your fellow party members a hand – whether it’s a friendly word to those who need to hear it or a donation through either the above or a charitable effort of your choice. Happy holidays!
