1st Sponsor! StoryWeaver Games

Within minutes of posting on Twitter of my intentions to organise Roll Against Cancer I received this message from StoryWeaver Games –


I can’t thank them enough for their support.

We’ll work out the details of what to do with this donation and any other forms of sponsorship we get in the run up to the event itself.

I encourage you to check out the RPGs that StoryWeaver Games produces by going to their website here – http://www.storyweaver.com/Games.aspx

Why does Roll Against Cancer exist?

This will be a short explanation but if you want something longer then please ask.

Everyone I know will more than likely have had their life impacted by Cancer.

But who am I?

My name is David and I’ve been a gamer more years than I’ve not. Considerably more years.
I write a blog about my views on my hobby.
I’ve lost too many friends and family to Cancer.
I’m lucky enough to know many wonderful people and right now some of those are having to fight Cancer.
I want to do something to support them, and others, get through their battle.

Cancer is a disease that has no cure and for that reason (amongst others) it’s one that scares people.

I understand why people would be frightened by Cancer but I refuse to give into that fear.
I can’t cure Cancer.
I also can’t raise enough money on my own to cure Cancer.
I can help though.
Roll Against Cancer is how I’m going to help.

Roll Against Cancer is how you can help too. I’ll post more about the event itself and the part you can play in it soon.

In the meantime if you want to offer your support or have any questions please let me know.

What is Roll Against Cancer?

Roll Against Cancer is a hub website for a group of gamers who play Tabletop Games to promote events they’re organising to raise money for Cancer related charities.

If you want to know about Tabletop Games then check out this post on A2ndChapter’s blog.

The charities we will support may change from event to event but specifically we’re keen to support the following –

As ever these things start small but with every step forward we break new ground.
