Posted in Idle Champions.

We are delighted to announce that the Stinky the Cranium Rat DLC pack has raised more than $11,500 for mental health at game conventions!

With the help of our fans, we managed to raise an astounding $11,542.05 in support of Take This, helping to fund AFK Rooms not just for PAX West 2018, but for future PAX Events as well.

On behalf of all of us at Codename Entertainment, we would like to offer a massive ‘thank you’ to the fans and supporters who made this happen. It is thanks to you that PAX attendees will have access to these invaluable spaces to recharge.

Also, a very special thank you to Holly Conrad, whose fantastic imagination created Stinky, and whose own fans helped make this a giant success too.

Idle Champions is going to PAX West 2018!

From August 31 through September 3, We will be hanging out with our good friends over the Table Titans Booth (#7609, Floor 6). We'll be giving away free loot to visitors, and we'll also be doing a couple signings with the cast of Dice Camera Action.

But wait, there's more: Idle Champions is co-sponsoring PAX West's AFK ROOM, put together by our friends over at Take This.

It's going to be a busy weekend – we hope to see you there!

Dice, Camera, Action, Signings!

Come by the Table Titans Booth (7609, Floor 6) at 3pm on Saturday or noon on Sunday to meet and get a poster signed by Holly Conrad, Jared Knabenbauer, Anna Prosser Robinson, Nate Sharp, and Chris Perkins.

We'll also be giving away PAX-exclusive Idle Champions #Wafflecrew posters, featuring the entire cast as their Champions! These posters were created by our resident fantasy illustrator and monster artist, Michelle Papadapoulos / @ArtOfMichelle.

Both signings will take place at the Table Titans Booth (#7609, Floor 6)!

AFK Rooms

Once upon a time, Strix had a pet Cranium Rat named Stinky. Stinky managed to live a long life as one of Strix's closest companions in Barovia after she lost the rest of her party to the vampire Strahd von Zarovich. Stinky's Ashes can be found in Idle Champions as one of Strix's equipment cards in memory of this friendship. However, we think it's time we honored Stinky further, and we can't think of a better more appropriate cause than with AFK Rooms.

Events like PAX West can be extremely overwhelming for any number of reasons, which is why we are firm believers in supporting safe, quiet spaces like AFK Rooms. It is vitally important that any person who needs a moment to collect themselves for any reason have access to a space to do so, which is why until September 4th all net proceeds from the Stinky the Cranium Rat DLC Pack will go towards supporting Take This' AFK Rooms at PAX West 2018.

You'll be able to purchase your own adorable Stinky the Cranium Rat Familiar, and support Take This, starting on Friday August 24th on Steam, iPad, and Android Tablets! You can find more information can be found about AFK Rooms here, and you can also learn more about Take This over at www.takethis.org.

Free PAX Loot!

There are two ways for PAX West attendees to get free loot for Idle Champions:
  • Visit Us — Swing by the Table Titans booth and say 'hi' to Dylan and Adam. We'll be around all weekend, sporting Idle Champions shirts and giving out free loot for Idle Champions.

  • Binwin Selfie — Take a selfie with either Scott Kurtz or the life-sized Binwin Bronzebottom at the Table Titans booth, upload the photo to Twitter using the hashtag #BinwinPAX2018, and follow @IdleChampions and then we will send you a Binwin Selfie Code for five Gold Binwin Chests!
