Hi, I'm Mendenbarr! Those of you who recognize my name will know me from the theorycrafting work I do for death knights for World of Warcraft.
I've always loved games of any type, and WoW has been a huge part of my life for the past 8 years. Blizzcon is the WoW convention, and I've always wanted to attend, but I've never had the means to. So, this year I'd like to go to Blizzcon!
What I Need & What You Get
I need about ~$1000 to pay for my coach class airfare, my ticket, and a few snacks along the way, and pay for a portion of a hotel room. I remain hopeful I'll be able to find someone to share a hotel room with.
If you have a hotel room/place that has room on the floor for me and my sleeping bag and isn't that far from the convention center, I'm very interested in purchasing it.
If you have a spare blizzcon ticket, I'm also very interested in purchasing it.
To be 100% clear, the successfulness of this will have no impact on my theorycrafting whatsoever. While I'll be a little sad if it fails, I'll continue devoting the same time and effort into producing useful information for all of you. I was thinking about several ideas for perks for contributors:
Access to all my theorycrafting work: It's already freely available on my blog, and will stay that way as long as I keep doing it.
1 on 1 help with your death knight: I already give this out freely to any who ask.
Answering any dk related questions: Already do this on both MMOC and EJ for free.
So I've settled on a personal thank you to anyone who contributes, and the other benefits listed below. I'm also an indie game dev, and will be giving out free beta access to my games to contributors. If anyone has any suggestions for other perks I can often, I'm all ears.
I've also set this campaign on fixed funding, so in the likely event I do not reach my goal, everyone will have all their money returned.
Any amount over the goal will be saved for blizzcon next year.
