Idle Champions: Grand Tour, Part 10 & Extra Life 
Posted in Idle Champions.

The Champions find themselves in turmoil. The newer Champions are mounting a grumbling mutiny after many adventures of following silently behind the core group. They feel it's time for them to take charge. Perhaps then, we can make some progress!

As it turns out, we have a perfect opportunity for them to show off their leadership skills. We come across a forest town besieged by kobolds, with a mystery surrounding goblins and some enchanted apples. Kobolds, goblins, and a sunken citadel, Oh my! It's time to split the party!

Note: you will need to have completed the previous two Grand Tour Adventures, Who Lurks in Lurkwood and Orcs are Wild, in order to access these new Adventures.

Begun, Our Extra Life Charity Drive Has...

We're super excited to launch our 2019 Extra Life charity drive! We've added a new DLC pack for Celeste to the store. Codename Entertainment will be donating the net proceeds of all sales of the Healer of Toril Celeste Skin & Feat pack through November 27th to Extra Life! Pick up this awesome skin, get a boost for Celeste's healing ability, AND help sick kids through Extra Life!

Celeste's new Healer of Toril Skin

Don't forget to tune into our 24-hour stream from the studio starting on Friday November 22nd at 9AM at Clive and Alexis will be running live D&D games! Check out the Idle Champions Extra Life page here

New Updates

We've added 3 new Quality of Life updates into the build today:
  • Formation saves will now also save your placed familiars!
  • The character sheets on PC & mobile have been updated with two toggle options, the first one allows you to see upcoming upgrades, so you can have more information when you're at your wall!
  • The second character sheet toggle combines upgrades, allowing you to see your Champions' progress towards their level cap. You'll now know how many more upgrades of each type remain before you reach your level cap!

The Sunless Citadel

The Champions find a mystery that requires them to split the party. We'll see the first half of the adventure from the point of view of the Evergreen Champions. The Sunless Citadel is our first base adventure with restrictions: You can only use Evergreen Champions (The Core 12 + Drizzt, Azaka, and Hitch).
  • Variant: Veteran Brigade — Continuing the restriction from the base adventure, only Evergreen Champions can be used in this variant. Jot, the quasit joins your formation in area 23 onward. Additionally, each boss has 50 points of armored health. These are the veterans, after all.
    Reach Area 325.

Meepo's Quest

The Champions find a mystery that requires them to split the party. We'll see the other half of the adventure from the point of view of the Event Champions. Meepo's Quest also has a restriction for the base adventure: You can only use Event Champions.
  • Variant: She's Harmless! — Continuing the restriction from the base adventure, only Event Champions can be used in this variant. Meepo, the kobold joins your formation in area 21 onward. Additionally, because we all know we're not going to return Meepo's 'pet', Champion damage is reduced by 25% for each 'good' Champion in the formation. . These are the veterans, after all..
    Reach Area 325.

Codename And Extra Life 
Posted in Codename News.

What is Extra Life?

Extra Life is a fun program set up to raise donations for Children's Miracle Network hospitals. Money raised gets donated as unrestricted funds, for the hospitals to use as needed. What's awesome is that you can help by doing what you normally do: game! For more information from the Extra Life program itself, click here.

What's the Plan?

For us at Codename, our donations will be going to the BC Children's Hospital Foundation. Last year, we went the extra mile by inadvertently surviving 25 hours and beating our initial goal of $3000 by raising just shy of $7000!

This year, we're starting with a modest team goal of $1000, but Clive is determined to raise that all by himself with his promise to be in a full Princess outfit for the entire twitch stream. To donate to our team, you can visit here. To find a staff member with a reward you'd like, you can click on the "Roster" button.

We've set aside time on the weekend of Saturday November 21 from 10am PST through Sunday November 22nd at 10am PST for our 24 hours of gaming fun. We'll be taking turns in shifts to play games and chat with our viewers and you can watch it all on our Twitch! We hope to make our fundraising goal while the live broadcast is happening, but you can donate before and after!

For those staff members whose goals require doing things on Stream, as we get closer to this weekend, we'll have a rough idea of when you can see them!

Extra Life: Gaming for the kids!
