This is the homepage for the gaming community founded at Bagram AFB, as well as the donation drive to build a nest egg of gaming books, accessories and materials that can be passed down from year to year as deployment cycles change and new gamers come in and out of Afghanistan.
In this post, I state the purpose of this page.
“…I’ll post any news about our drive to build a long-lasting, thriving gamer community among the men and women serving our country in whatever capacity they can. If you send a donation, there will be a picture and description posted there for all to see. If you publicize the donation drive on your blog, I’ll link it on that page. I’m sure if we all work together we can make this an absolutely awesome gift to our bro
thers and sisters in uniform who love to roll dice and roleplay– just like us.”
Wizards of the Coast has pledged to send the BAFBGC the materials for a season of D&D Encounters. This is, for now, going to be the format for our gaming endeavors as it suits the transitional and mission-dependent nature of life here in a warzone. As soon as it’s in my hands, I’ll put up a picture of the donation.
UPDATE 10/29: In response to questions from folks wanting to contribute, here are a couple of answers:
I’m not going to put the shipping address up on an unsecured site. The network we have to use for internet here goes through local servers, and it’s well known that traffic is often monitored. I am, however, happy to send you the address via secure email. Drop me a line at theactionpoint (AT) gmail (DOT) com and I’ll make sure you get all the info you need.
