Richard Garriott cuts off (some of) his rat tail to raise money for Shroud of the Avatar

Richard “Lord British” Garriott is well-known for several things: his creation of the Ultima series, his lavish geeky parties, his trip to space, and of course, his ever-present rat tail. This week that rat tail has lost a little of its majestic length as Garriott cut off a fifth of it to promote Shroud of the Avatar’s winter telethon.

Yesterday’s all-day telethon raised an additional $20,600 for the game, which had already passed $8M in crowdfunding. Fans who contributed at least $5 to the telethon will receive a few in-game gifts, including a snow emote, a cloak, and an ice nightmare mount. The devs did their part with deep dives into various game topics while taking shots for every $2,000 raised. No word yet as to how many of the team suffered from alcohol poisoning.

Higgens Damonvile  Impact on gaming? Who gives a gods damned shit? Give me a good game, I couldn’t care less if you “impact” gaming with a crater that’s balls deep.

Besides impact on gaming these days is just code for everyone is gonna copy you until we’re all sick of it.

Sorenthaz Siphaed Hahaha, I was with friends on New Years and one of them and myself were drinking more than our share of whiskey.  When she got up to go get a snack she was like a pinball bumping into every possible piece of furniture on the way out of the room…..
