In the wake of Rush Limbaugh's disgusting attacks on Sandra Fluke -- and when I've been reading articles like this one on funding cuts in the UK for domestic violence shelters -- it seems an opportune time to remind everybody about the random little fundraiser I'm doing.

More details at that link, but the short form is that, as a part of my ongoing analysis, if you donate to a women's charity -- you choose which one; it could be a shelter or rape counseling or pro-choice or anti-discrimination or whatever -- and send me the info, I will buy used copies of various bits of Wheel of Time merchandise, and blog about them for your entertainment.

Because I'm really tired of feeling like we're backsliding on women's rights, like the Overton window has shifted to the point where we've got a major presidential candidate speaking out against all forms of birth control, and people cheering him for it. So I hope this encourages some of you to donate to a worthy cause.

So, how do you feel about the Wheel of Time roleplaying game?

Haven't looked at it yet. All I know is that it's d20, and my off-the-cuff feeling is that's a really bad system for the setting.

It's the first benchmark on the donation rewards, though -- $25 to suitable charities, and I'll get a copy of the book and report back. :-)
