Back in May I did a no reason fundraiser playing Final Fantasy 13 for 13 hours. Now that the official Extra Life day is upon us, I think it would be only appropriate to play Final Fantasy 7 for a total of 12 hours! Unlike May’s stream, this game is actually considered good, so I’m hoping that helps people decide to donate! The stream will be on November 7th and I am shooting for 9 AM CST to 9 PM CST. I’m going to be starting at the 15-ish hour mark, and this is a mostly blind playthrough - I know some of the major story beats but I have never actually played the game before. You can find the stream at:
My particular charity is The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Extra Life is a fantastic program that has collaborated with gamers to raise money for hospitals around the country, and I am super happy to be a part of it again. I am setting a goal for the stream of $250 raised. If we somehow manage to reach $500 raised, I will donate an additional $100 dollars. Unfortunately I am not savvy enough to know how to reset the goals from my last charity stream, so that means my starting point is $365. The incentives from the last stream are also no longer valid, but I can’t remove them if they were already claimed, so I am listing incentives here and on my stream. Here are the new incentives! (Subject to change up until the day of)
Show Nora/Leon! - $5.00. I will drop everything and find my pets to show their faces on cam.
Party Swap - $10.00 Make this donation and call out which party members you want me to use. I don't know if there are in game restrictions on who can be used when, so some restrictions apply.
FF13 Soundtrack - $13.00 Why are you like this?
Drawful - $20.00 Commission a (safe for work) drawing to be done on the medium of “mechanical pencil on paper” for me to complete on stream! I warn you, I am pretty bad at all forms of drawing, but I will try my best
Game changers are also back on the menu!
Materia: The Gathering - $50. I’ll fire up MTGO and play a round of Vintage Cube!
Beat Ornstein and Smough - $100. After finding a save point, I will drop everything and play Dark Souls through Ornstein and Smough!
Beat Gwyn - $100. Did you tune into a Final Fantasy stream when you really, really wanted a Dark Souls stream? Fine, I’ll beat the whole game! (Must have O&S completed first).
Lightning Returns? - $200. Please don’t make me play this.
Undo Lightning Returns - $50. Save me.
