Author and former RadCon Guest of Honor Jay Lake is dying of terminal colon cancer. He’s using some of his last time and energy in a clinical trial at the National Institutes of Health, where the fan-funded Whole Genome Sequencing data generated last year is helping for the very first time ever further target a cutting edge immunotherapy technique. This may buy Lake some more time now, and will absolutely help future cancer patients. While the National Institutes of Health does not charge patients for services, Lake is still shouldering extensive travel and living expenses for his family and caregivers. This auction will help defray some of those costs.

From the incredibly fun 5th Wall group…
Sometimes, we here at 5th Wall Gaming tend to go a bit… Well… overboard on games we run. From putting in that little extra “umph” into our events. But this.. I think we are pushing the bounds of awesome this time.. Be prepared to have a character on the server that actually improves your gameplay in the simulation as you learn skills and such. But wait.. There’s more…
You can now (well, will be able to at the convention and after) be able to pick between Marines (who get more skills) or Officer School (which gives you that precious Captaining skill that acts like a multiplier to that crews XP for the Simulation)… But wait… What’s that? You want more??
I just finished up the code for something a bit more… special.. A bit to encourage Roleplaying… Here’s a hint…
Please head over to http://www.5thWallGaming.com and click on the “Event Schedule” to RSVP for a time slot (note that you need an account there first). They fill up fast and we were mobbed when we showed up last year and the time slots were taken up by Friday afternoon. So it is recommended that you get reserved for a timeslot ASAP.
See you at the convention.
