    Extra Life 2022, Team Standing Stone Games, and You!

    Extra Life, Team Standing Stone Games, and You!

    Once again Standing Stone Games, players from throughout the LOTRO community, and associated friends and family are raising money for Extra Life! Our fundraising through Team Standing Stone Games will help the local Boston Children's Hospital, which provides life-saving treatment and care to children from all over the world. Read more here!

    We hope to raise $20,000 for the Boston Children's Hospital this year! Team Standing Stone Games includes both Dungeons & Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online players, developers, and friends. Last year we were the top fundraiser for the Boston Children's Hospital, and we'd love to do that again.

    Why Extra Life?


    Extra Life is a charitable organization that unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $70 million for sick and injured kids. Click here to read more about the organization.

    How can I help?


    Donate and/or join our team! In the coming weeks the Standing Stone Games Extra Life Team will be fundraising together, and we have some fun activities and giveaways planned to support the cause.


    To donate to the Team: http://extra-life.org/team/standingstonegames
    To find my donation page: https://www.extra-life.org/participant/JerrySnook
    To sign up for Extra Life, if you want to raise money yourself:http://www.extra-life.org/

    What should I do after I donate?


    It is important that I receive additional information from you in order to be able to get you your incentives. I have set up a survey in SurveyMonkey this year to capture this information and more easily distribute your incentives to you.


    If you donate at least $10, you will be entered into the various giveaways that will take place after November 30th. If you donate to the team, me, or another Team member, it counts!

    Group Incentives:


    $5000 - A 500 LOTRO Point code and a pick from the Community Loot List will be randomly distributed to twenty people who donate at least $10 to the fundraising effort through a random-number-generated giveaway. Only one entry per person regardless of donation amount.
    $10000 - Ten more 500 LOTRO Point codes and ten more picks from the Community Loot List will be randomly distributed to folks who donate at least $10.
    $15000 - Ten more 500 LOTRO Point codes and ten Anniversary Corgi pet codes will be randomly distributed to folks who donate at least $10+.
    $20000 - We have met our goal! We will give away an Ultimate Fan Edition of Before the Shadow to one person who has donated at least $10!

    All group incentive giveaways will take place after November 30th, and winners will be notified through the contact information provided to me in the SurveyMonkey survey.

    Individual incentives:


    $5 - Forum Title of your choice, within the community guidelines. PM me with your desired choice. If you already have a custom title, I can add another!
    $10 - One pick from the Community Loot List, and an entry into every giveaway.
    $20 - Two additional picks from the Community Loot List.
    $30 - Two additional picks from the Community Loot List
    $50 - Four additional picks from the Community Loot List in addition to an Anniversary Celebration Corgi pet!

    All incentives are cumulative, so if you donate $50, you also get the benefits of the lower tiers, meaning a $50 donation would get 9 total picks from the Community Loot List. These will be distributed to you through codes that are entered through Redeem Code in the LOTRO Store inside of the game. You are free to distribute these codes to friends or family as you wish.

    Here is the Community Loot List:

    IN GAME TITLE: Artist(Prefix)
    IN GAME TITLE: Artist(Suffix)
    IN GAME TITLE: Art Lover
    IN GAME TITLE: Audience Member
    IN GAME TITLE: Concert Attendee
    IN GAME TITLE: Event Organizer
    IN GAME TITLE: Event Winner
    IN GAME TITLE: Hero of the Small Folk
    IN GAME TITLE: Musician(Prefix)
    IN GAME TITLE: Musician(Suffix)
    IN GAME TITLE: Performer of Note
    IN GAME TITLE: Provider of Event Information
    IN GAME TITLE: Speaker for the Musicians
    IN GAME TITLE: Speaker of Words
    IN GAME TITLE: Spectator
    IN GAME TITLE: Striving for Victory
    IN GAME TITLE: Viewer of Events
    IN GAME TITLE: The Well Met
    HOUSING ITEM: Best House in the Neighborhood Trophy
    HOUSING ITEM: Sleeping Grey Cat
    PET: Anniversary Celebration Corgi
    PET: Lively Slug
    PET: Tundra Cub
    PET: Spirit Bear
    MUSICAL INSTRUMENT: Bardic Fiddle
    MUSICAL INSTRUMENT: Lonely Mountain Fiddle
    MUSICAL INSTRUMENT: Sprightly Fiddle
    MUSICAL INSTRUMENT: Traveler's Trusty Fiddle
    MOUNT: Cremello Steed
    MOUNT: Perlino Steed
    MOUNT: Steed of the Red Dawn
    MOUNT: Steed of the White City

    Thank you for your donation, however large or small it may be. There is never a time that children will not need life-saving help, but especially this year, the work that is being done is more critical than ever.

    Donating for multiple people

    Glad extra life is here again. In the past if we donated for several accounts, we could time stamp the donations and let you know. Will we be able to do the same with the survey?

    The codes should last essentially forever, I don't have an expiration date on them. If you ever did try to redeem and it didn't work I could get you a replacement, though.

    The Anniversary Celebration Corgi is the new item added to the list this year.

    Yeah, just put it in the space for comments. Ultimately I'm going to go through the list one by one and get you your codes, and can contact you if there are any questions.

    They don't expire. I wouldn't say never, because old pre-2011 codemaster codes no longer work, so if they change their code system in 5 years or so the current codes may no longer work, but other than that possibility, the codes do not have an expiration date.

    I gave away my lively slug code last year in a kinnie raffle, maybe about 6 or 7 weeks after the extra life codes were distributed, and it still worked.

    Formally I have said that everything will wait until after the formal drive ends at the end of November, but if possible I intend to start distributing things early.

    Thank you everyone for your kind donations this weekend! It was a big weekend for fundraising, much appreciated. Just a note that we are looking at Friday, November 4th from a big LOTRO marathon on LOTROstream with me and the other streamers there. Something like morning through Midnight.

    Is the Sleeping Grey Cat the same thing as the Sleeping Cat that's sold in the LOTRO store? I can't seem to find pictures anywhere, and the store one is kinda grey.

    Extra Life time again!

    The incentive form has a single checkbox for each item, but I plan to ask for duplicates of items to give codes to my daughter. I assume this is just something I PM you with, Cord?

    There is a comment box in the survey to take care of anything else, so just mark that you want X amount of whatever item there. You can, however, also PM me if you wish.

    Does it matter if we make a donation to you or to the team? I followed one of the links and made a donation but now I believe it was to your personal donation page.

    It does not matter who you donate to, really, just make sure to let me know about your donation through the survey link in the OP.

    Per character, but for this one item I am doing something different this year with it and letting the coupon code be redeemable six times per account, for just this one code, so you can get it on multiple characters.
