Reaping the Benefits- A charity RPG event


Its that time again folks, I know I’ve mentioned it on the cast before but today marks my 3rd participation in the Hunger Games charity RPG event. Based on the Novels of Suzanne Collins the hunger games pits young contestants in a battle for survival. This year I am gender bending and playing young Lav (Lavender) Plume, a young man with a big chip on his shoulder from District 8. We are fired up to play this rpg campaign and raise money for Child’s Play charity which is an awesome charity that brings the gift of gaming to terminally ill children in hospitals around the globe. So if you are a fan of table top and want to listen to an event that has drama, action and death come to the Reaping the benefits website and prepare yourself for the fun.

The RTB Forums a cool place to hang out
