Support RPG Crossing and a good cause at the same timeOver past drives, the RPG Crossing community has donated over USD$12,500 to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. This year, we are trying to beat last year's record fundraising amount and raise over $3365 to support mental illness research, "to bring the joy of living to those affected by mental illness – those who are ill and their families and friends."

You can track our progress through announcements and information that will be posted at, and through our event page for the BBR Foundation.

How it works1 - Effective immediately (Dec 1) and continuing until (and including) Thursday, Dec 31, 2021, $5 of every FULL YEAR Community Supporter membership will be donated to support mental illness research, via the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation. The foundation does its work by awarding research grants. 100% of your contributions for research are invested in research thanks to the generous support of two family foundations which cover the BBR Foundation's operating expenses.

2 - You can make a direct donation to the BBR Foundation through our event page for the BBR Foundation.

*** But wait now, what's that? Author Joshilyn Jackson will match all donations up to a total of $1500? Wow! That's awesome! Now your participation in our drive will have twice the impact for charity! ***

Goals and GoodiesWith great thanks to our supporters, in addition to the matching donation to charity, everyone who donates $10 or more through our team page for the Brain & Behavior Foundation OR who purchases a full year CS for themselves or receives one as a giftadds a full year CS to their account will get the following:
  • A curated selection of this year's digital D&D 5e accessories from Underground Oracle (value $84.80)!
  • A $10 credit voucher at!
  • A PDF copy of both the Fragged Empire Core Rules and Fragged Seas from (value $40)!
  • A copy of the QUEST map-drawing RPG by Michael McCarthy (normally pay what you want, $3+)!
  • PDF copies of Orcs Unlimited games Small Wardens, We Hunt Bugs, and Brass Rings! ($8 value)

That's a pretty great list, so please be generous with your donations. And there is no better time than now to become a CS member (apart from perhaps when special prizes start to be announced on Dec 6th.) Lots of other rewards for participation are on the way! Watch for announcements!

FAQWhat is a Community Supporter account? We are committed to providing an excellent community to all members, but Community Supporters get some perks. Some of these are: a mobile style for easier reading on smaller devices, more private message space, a larger avatar, extensive folder management in games, the Community Supporter badge, access to the Community Supporter forum and its games & wish thread & private threads, nearly automatic game approval, and the warm feeling of knowing that you've helped keep the community going. For a more complete run down and chart, please visit the Community Supporter help page.

How to purchase a membership for someone else: If you'd like to buy a CS membership for a friend, buy one on your account and send a pm to Birched -- he will transfer the year to the account of your choosing. Please indicate the exact username of the recipient, and whether you'd like the gift to be anonymous.

How to purchase a membership with no credit card or PayPal: Credit card purchases can be made through PayPal even without an account (and if you don't want an account, don't fall for their attempt to get you to make one after you enter your payment information), but if that's not an option, memberships can also be purchased by cheque or Transferwise. Please send a pm to Birched for details.

Can I make a donation to BBR Foundation through the site without buying a membership: Yes. Please donate through our campaign with BBR Foundation at this link. Donations of $10 will qualify for participant rewards. If you are interested in these, please include your site username in the comment box so that we can contact you at to deliver rewards.

What is a full year membership: A full year membership is the Community Supporter membership that costs USD$25 until December 5, and USD$36 after that date.

If you've been planning to buy a CS membership for yourself or someone else on the site, this is a great time to do that and also give to a worthwhile cause. Almost all of us have been touched by these illnesses in one way or another, either in our families, amongst our friends, or even here on the site (some of those unexplained absences of PBP players, perhaps?)

I will report back and let you know how we are doing. Wishing you all all the best for the holiday season,

~ Mark / Birched

P.S. If you are a CS, you can hide the graphic I will be adding to the header in the same way that you can hide the Twitter and Google+ buttons.
