We're all pretty excited here at PBD, and it's hard to believe that's it's already been three years of operation (Most of us had lost count, to be honest). Typically, we haven't really done anything in the past to celebrate our collective birthday (it's more of a birth month, but you get the idea; our ACTUAL birthday is October 27th, in case you card though). But this year, we thought we'd change things up a bit...
PBD IS DOING A CHARITY EVENT, WHAT?!?!
That's right! For our 3rd Anniversary, PBD will be participating in Extra-Life's charity event starting in November! Here are all the details:
What: Extra-Life is a charity organization where you and a group of people can get together and raise money by streaming games consistently for 25 hours straight. The funds raised go to the streamers' local children's hospital (in our case, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia).
When: Nationally, the event starts on November 2nd at 8:00 A.M. and runs until November 3rd at 9:00 A.M. While we would like to participate on the national day, many of us will not be available that day, so instead, we'll be doing our's the weekend after. Our stream will start at 6:00 P.M. on Friday, November 9th and we will conclude the event with our weekly episode of The Fellowship of the Flame. The stream should last anywhere from 27 to 30 hours, depending on how long our Dungeons and Dragons game lasts.
Extra Details: Our goal is to raise at least $150.00. If it's possible, we'd love to totally demolish that goal, but as a relatively small site, we don't want to set impossibly high goals. Click here to go to our page on Extra-Life. The donation is tax deductible (if you care about that). So far, Peter (The Steamworks), Chazz (Shatterblog!), and Eric (The Red Viking) are signed on for the event (this list will be updated as more PBD members sign on). WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING DONATIONS EVEN BEFORE THE ACTUAL EVENT! To donate, click on a team member at the bottom of the page, and click the big orange "Support Me!" button (or just click here). None of your money goes through our hands (physically and virtually), so you are 100% ensured that it is sent to CHOP.
The PBD Radio tab has been updated with the schedule for this special event. All of us here are really excited to make a difference, and we encourage you folks to come out, join us on the livestream, have some fun, and of course to contribute whatever is affordable for you. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to leave a comment here, Tweet us @BetterDolphin, or email us.
I just wanted to update you guys on a bit of info for TFotF; we did NOT meet on Saturday night like we were supposed to due to several people in our group not being available for many reasons. However, we are trying to get together Tuesday afternoon, on October 22nd, 2013. I have posted a not on the PBD Radio page as a reminder. Time tables are below:
4:00 P.M. Eastern Time
3:00 P.M. Central Time
2:00 P.M. Mountain Time
1:00 P.M. Pacific Time
Please note that there is a chance we won't be meeting on Tuesday, and furthermore there is still a chance we won't be able to meet Saturday again due to busy schedules. Hopefully all of the hassles everyone is going through will be over soon, and we'll be back on a normal schedule. If you have any questions regarding anything from time schedules, rules, characters... literally ANYTHING (okay, maybe not ANYTHING, but pretty much anything), don't be afraid to drop it in the comments below or tweet @BetterDolphin. Trust me, we'll answer you . Don't forget to follow us on Twitter for instant updates as well.
Peter, The Steamworks
(P.S: We currently have an AMA on Reddit, so don't be afraid to ask us any questions you have there as well. Just wanted to let y'all aware of that. We'll be checking it a few times a day.)
Project Better Dolphin went to NYCC, and we brought back some footage for you folks that couldn't make it out to the Big Apple! If you like the video we'd really appriciate you hitting that "Like" button and Subscribing for more videos by us!
So after a bit of talking, the Project Better Dolphin team decided to do a (very) small Meet and Greet for anyone who follows us and will be at New York Comic Con! The specifics are still unclear, and we'll be sure to update this post with information as it comes. As of right now, we will be hanging out in the cafeteria of the Javits Center sometime either Friday or Saturday (we might do only Friday or only Saturday, or we might do both, depending on some variables). Friday we'll be there at 1:30 P.M. and will stay for as long as people show up. Saturday we'll be there at 3:00 P.M. again for as long as people show up. We'll bring some Sharpies just in case, but everyone's pretty skeptical that someone'll actually want an autograph let alone come around and see us.
JD (Slightly Redder Red), Chazz (Shatterblog!), Peter (The Steamworks), Gabby (Resident Troll), and Monique (Frequent PBD Guest, otherwise known as Nilda) will all be present at NYCC, however we cannot guarantee everyone will be at the Meetup due to everyone having different panels.
Follow @BetterDolphin, @petebroguy, and @streetowls for instant updates to the meetup times and places! Hope to see you there!
So yeah, it's been a little while since you guys have heard from me, right?
Anyway, I'm not here to talk about that. I'm here to talk about PBD Radio! You might have noticed we added a new page to our list. Can't find it? CLICK ME! "What is this new feature?" you might ask. Well, PBD Radio is where you can listen LIVE to PBD events that we'll be having. Currently, we plan on having one particular event called The Fellowship of the Flame, which is the title for our Dungeons and Dragons group. That's right, we'll be broadcasting LIVE our adventures in DnD! The Fellowship of the Fire will star our trying Dungeon Master (Shatterblog! writer Chazz), Rahgeben the Hengeyokai Druid (The Red Viking writer Eric), Mosryte the Drow Avenger (Slightly Redder Red writer JD), Nilda the Eladrin Wizard (PBD Guest Monique), Sardis the Genasi Warlock (PBD Guest Erin), and Phobus the Half-Elf Shaman. These sessions will regularly air starting at 6:00 P.M. EST on Saturdays (I included a lovely time guide on the PBD Radio page for those of you more west of us).
We've also played around with the idea of bring back PBD's Super Awesome Magical Fun Time Radio of Doom!, but we haven't really discussed anything yet. There's a high probability, though, that if we bring the podcast back, we will be using the LiveStream page we have set up.
Our first episode of The Fellowship of the Flame will air LIVE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8TH at 4:00 P.M. EST. Here's a conversion chart:
3:00 P.M. Central
2:00 P.M. Mountain
1:00 P.M. Pacific
We'd love it if you were able to come on out and join our little group of adventurers. Another important note to make, The Fellowship of the Flame will NOT be meeting Saturday, October 12th due to our annual business trip out to NYCC (but who knows, maybe we'll livestream from there!).
That's all I have for you guys today, I hope you come around to join us!
