On DriveThruRPG, we’re making the RuneQuest Glorantha Bestiary ‘Pay-What-You-Want’ on for the next seven days (to 12 Jan). If you download it, instead of paying us, we encourage you to make a donation to the Australian fire-fighting and recovery effort.
We think Gloranthan beasts are special, but Australian animals are unique and precious – and real. But it is estimated up to half a billion of them have perished so far in the devastating wildfires still raging across the continent. That number is expected to rise dramatically, as vast swathes of habitat have been consumed by flame.
Some places where you can donate – you’ll find the URLs for all these sites on the RuneQuest Glorantha Bestiary product page at DriveThruRPG:
- WIRES is a wildlife rescue nonprofit rescuing and caring for thousands of sick, injured and orphaned Australian native animals.
- World Wildlife Fund Australia is directing its efforts towards koala conservation. Thousands have perished so far
- The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital is raising funds to distribute automatic drinking stations in the burnt areas to help in koala and wildlife survival, and sharing the funds with other wildlife organisations in the fire affected regions
- Other places to support:
- Australian Red Cross:
- New South Wales Rural Fire Service
- Country Fire Authority Victoria
