The Shadowcasters Network is holding their annual fundraiser! Help them keep producing the great gaming content that you love. This year one-third of every dollar you give will go to the WorldBuilders.org charity!

The Shadowcasters Network  is a group of passionate geeks who love gaming and sharing that passion with everyone on the internet. Whether it's Tabletop RPGs, boardgames, or video games, we spend most of our time trying to figure out how we can show off the stuff we love playing, in the hopes that you'll love it too. We've got our popular Shadorwun  shows The Arcology Podcast, Neo-Anarchist PodcastTales From the Stuffer Shack, and GM Screen, as well as an immensely popular Shadowrun: Anarchy  live show called Join the Anarchy. We've got the up and coming boardgaming smash-hit Once Upon A Tabletop. We've got our weekly video game variety stream Mediocre at Best. And these are just the tip of the iceberg! Our lineup is growing and we've got more ideas that we're excited to try out!

What are we trying to do?

Our fans helped us raise the money to get through our first year of business, and it has been a BLAST! However, we don't plan on slowing down, so we're here again to try and keep this train moving.

Charity - WorldBuilders

Last year we saw an incredibly moving show of support by all of our fans. You guys donated enough to help get us going. We have been so proud of the generosity of our fans and friends that we want to pay it forward this year by donating some of the money we raise to charity.

One-Third of all the money we make up to $3000 will be donated to the WorldBuilders organization.

One-Half of every dollar we make over $3000 will then also be donated to WorldBuilders.

We are really excited about the opportunity to be able to help out this charitable organization, and we hope you are too! If you'd like more info on them, click on the link below!

Shadowrun Missions: Online

This past year we've been building a brand new online venue  for playing officially sanctionedShadowrun Missions games. These games, normally only played at conventions or hard-t0-find small game stores, are a way for players to participate in the living Shadowrun campaign continually developed by Catalyst Game Labs. Our venue allows players to create missions legal characters, play sanctioned missions games from the comfort of their homes, and have their sessions count toward their character's official career progress. We want to keep this venue running, and improve on it in some big ways by creating a simple system that allows you to log onto a website, check for games being run at your convenience, and grab a ticket to play Shadowrun.

More Streaming

Streaming content has become a big part of what we do here at the Shadowcasters Network, and we have some great ideas for new shows.

  • New RPG Live plays (Paranoia? Pathfinder? Vampire: The Masquerade? WHO KNOWS?!?)
  • More boardgame shows
  • A weekly news and gaming talk show
  • Live tournament events

Podcasts

Can't get enough podcasts? Neither can we! That's why we keep making them. We have new shows in the pipe ready to be brought to life. We want to raise them up and send them to you with the best quality that we can manage. Anyone remember that Earthdawn  podcast we did once? Maybe it will be back? Hmmm? Join the Anarchy  podcast? Perhaps? Let's make these things happen!

Stream-A-Thon is BACK!

On  July 6th  we are bringing back our epic fundraising event over on our  Twitch channel. For 36 straight hours we will be streaming live content from the Shadowcasters and other friends of the network. We'll have things like:

  • A  Shadowrun  Authors Panel Q&A
  • An All-Star Game of  Paranoia
  • Sixth World Podcast  RETURNS
  • Join the Anarchy
  • My Little Pony Reunion Show
  • The Return of the  Dear Handy  Call-In Show
  • On-Air Giveaways and Raffles
  • Chances to Talk to, and play with your favorite shadowcasters
  • And much, MUCH more!

If you thought it was fun last year, just wait! You'll not want to miss this chance to get involved in the action. We can't wait to interact with our fans for 36 straight hours!
