The Center Cannot Hold:
A fundraising adventure event for Rockcliffe.

Our fundraising goal is $10,000 USD which will be used to cover the cost of the accreditation process (60%), help support additional website development required in advance of the application filing (30%), and administrative/processing fees (10%).
The cost to be part of this 6-week adventure is only $1 USD (~$250 Lindens) and you will be helping a wonderful cause. Instructions on starting the game will be given to a special RUC Gaming Group on April 22nd. Make you you check back on this page for exact details.
Your Adventure BEGINS!
Game Runs from Wednesday 22 April 2015
through Saturday 30 May 2015
Your adventure will begin as a hero out to save the world from destruction. In order to do so, you must save the center of the world by reconstructing its protective circles of earth, water, air, and fire!
Each circle will require the gathering of powerful resources before it can be rebuilt. However, there are forces out there that will try to prevent you from constructing each circle. These obstacles will need to be overcome in order for you to continue on your quest.
On your journey you will receive blessings and glimmers of hope that you are on the right path.
But Beware! If tempted, you will falter. You are not immune to the evil that is destroying the world.
Mind the moments when you need renewal to fight your own inner demons before they consume you. If you win your inner battles, you will become stronger than ever before. All your strength will be needed to complete the final circle as it will be the most heavily contested and the most difficult to reconstruct.
Heed these words: the Centre cannot hold without your help!
