Traveller For Charity

two brothers gaming opt

Help raise money for a good cause while enjoying a Traveller game live stream that you can influence.

This year’s 2nd Annual Traveller Charity Game marquee event will benefit The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation and will be hosted by GM/Referee Patrick Kanouse of Two Brothers Gaming.

Joining him as players are High Shelf Gaming and The Death Die Club.

They will be playing Michael Brown’s Angle of Incidence: “A routine cargo run leads to a station orbiting a black hole and one man’s world of obsession, secrets, and madness. As the heroes help an intelligence agent investigate the mad scientist’s activities, they come to realize that they may bear witness to the ultimate adventure…or become just more bits of matter crushed by the black hole’s gravity.”

The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation’s mission is to increase awareness and educate the general public and healthcare professionals regarding carcinoid and related neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), to support NET cancer patients and their families, and to serve as patient advocates.

We’ll be giving away a bunch of things, and you can even have an effect on the game.

The game will stream on High Shelf Gaming’s Twitch channel at 8:00 pm Eastern on May 1st, 2021.

The game will include giveaways and opportunities to influence the game.

Opportunities to donate to the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation will be provided during the stream.

Last year we raised $2000 - let's see if we can beat that this year!
