Fiery Dragon is Raising Money For Jeff Freels (Artist in Need of a Kidney Transplant)

If you are a follower of all things Tunnels & Trolls, none of this will be news for you, so treat it as a reminder.  Jeff Freels (T&T artist and designer of the Bean! RPG) is in need of a kidney transplant.  In truth, his wife needs one too, but Jeff's health is more dire at the moment.

This part is news:  Fiery Dragon is going to donate a portion of all T&T proceeds from sales at their website for the year of 2012.  That's 12 months to buy some great T&T stuff and help out a member of our hobby.

I'm going to copy the posting from ENWorld (I'm sure the guys at Fiery Dragon won't mind):

Hi, I'm James from Fiery Dragon, and I just wanna drop in a little post about an artist named Jeff Freels.

When the Fiery Dragon crew gets together to play a fantasy or sci-fi or post-apocalyptic rpg, we pretend we’re amazing individuals with crazy histories and mystical abilities. We use our imagination and pretend the impossible is possible.

And then you deal with someone like Jeff Freels, the blind artist, and you quickly redefine what amazing abilities are. Jeff is a guy who came to us through the Tunnels & Trolls community, and his art captures the feel and magic of that game perfectly.

Now, whatever challenges our characters may face in our fantasy roleplaying games, Jeff is certainly dealing with issues that are just as difficult and facing them as bravely as any warrior. Jeff needs a kidney transplant.

He’s created a page on his website that gives the details of his situation and his plan:http://www.jeffwerx.com/tf.html. Inspired by Jeff’s courage, we’d like to help him raise money for this worthy cause.

Fiery Dragon will be donating a portion of the proceeds from every digital and direct sale (from our website) of all Tunnels & Trolls products sold in 2012. We’ve just released CASTLE OF THE DEAD, a T&T Solo Adventure that features Jeff’s artwork, and we’ll be re-releasing the latest version of the Tunnels & Trolls Roleplaying Game rules and additional adventures throughout the year.

You don't have to be a T&T player or Fiery Dragon support to help out, though. Jeff has a donate button on his website that can be used to send funds to him directly.

Together we can enjoy a great game and help a great cause. Thanks for your support

I've already ordered a 2-pack of Castle of the Dead (free shipping for the win) and the site takes Paypal.

I'm excited to see a re-release of Tunnels & Trolls 7.5 and additional adventures being released throughout the year.  Hopefully we can make it a good year for Fiery dragon, Tunnels & Trolls and most importantly the Freels Family.
