Hex Games Teams Up With Gamers For Humanity To Raise Money For New Orleans Trip
Hex Games is proud to support Gamers for Humanity in their fundraising efforts for New Orleans. The first 100 people to donate $10 or more to Gamers for Humanityís New Orleans trip at www.gamersforhumanity.org will receive a copy of the new gaming supplement American Artifacts 2. Your donations will make this yearís New Orleans trip possible, and Hex Games wants to thank you for helping out.
Gamers for Humanity will be taking their 4th annual New Orleans Work Trip from Sunday March 13th through Saturday March 19th, 2011. Help them lift up a city that has been laid low many times. New Orleans is more than just Mardi Gras; New Orleans is music and hospitality and relaxation and neighborhoods and caring and welcoming and warm weather, and itís also hurricanes and flooding and oil spills. New Orleans and its people need your help. Gamers for Humanity needs your help.
If you join the trip to New Orleans you'll be helping a city full of wonderful people, and having fun along the way. If the trip isn't for you, you can donate to assist the volunteers with travel and housing funds. Most of the volunteers are like you--they want to help, but aren't swimming in vast piles of cash. And remember, once you donate $10 or more, you will receive your PDF copy of American Artifacts 2.
American Artifacts 2 gives you 20 magical items uniquely suited to the New World. Some are objects from American history, like Crispus Attucks's musket ball, or from pop culture, like Zuzu's petals. Some were created by wizards who act like scientists, and some by scientists who act like wizards; Nikola Tesla's ray gun, William Faulkner's pocket watch, and Benjamin Franklin's automaton all blur the line between magic and science.
All 20 artifacts are suitable for use in a wide variety of games. Each entry includes a description of the artifact, background information, and game mechanics. The artifacts range from the charming, like Mark Twain's cigar box, to the cosmically powerful, like the Shard of the True Plane. A detailed timeline is also included, that offers a clear overview of the occult history of America. And donít worry, you don't need to have read the original American Artifacts to use this book.
