Dave and I would like to ask all members of UESP to check out this awesome charity event hosted by Adam of Nostalgic Quests. He is raising money for the Make-A-Wish foundation in the UK by playing Skyrim! His brother is also participating with the Resident Evil series.

Here's a snippet from their event page:
Quote:
On the 12th March myself and my brother will be breaking two Guinness World Records.

One is the longest time playing a survival horror series, which the record stands at 27 hours and 8 minutes. (Which Jason will be attempting to break, playing the Resident Evil Series)

The other record is longest time playing a Role Playing Game, which the record currently stands at 48 hours 14 minutes. (Which Adam will be attempting to break, playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

We are doing this inside the Wolverhampton Wulfrun shopping centre.


Please check it out, give them your support, and, if possible, a few dollars for the kids at Make-A-Wish. Remember: sharing is caring, and you get +10 speechcraft for 3600 seconds. Imagine the possibilities! ;)

While I am unable to send money at the moment (though I might be able to later), I am sure gonna spread this however I can. Maybe I can post it on Tumblr and get it promoted.

Go for it! It is shared on G+ and Twitter as well, so feel free to share and/or retweet the UESP announcement as you are able. :D

Edit: Actually, maybe for everyone that shares it via social media/some other creative way I'll donate a few bucks on behalf of the UESP forums. How's that sound?

Just how many potions are you going to end up making?

Will you just stop after you cross the record mark, or will you just keep going until you have to stop?

I don't know yet I haven't decided on what type of character build to go for yet, or I may let people who donate build my character(s) for me.

I'm hoping to go to at least the 50 hour mark, and then we'll see from there, hopefully we'll have a livestream set up so people can check in with us and see how we're doing

I was thinking something more like this— :wink:

Commentator: Well, Adam has just slaughtered his way through a veritable herd of those walrus-looking beasties! Let's see what he finds around the corner of this ice-bound beach. Oh, God! Another cooking pot! Now we know why's he's been hoarding that salt for the past three hours— this may take a while...

I've had an idea today.

For every £1 or $1.5 someone donates they get one vote for a characteristic for my character for example:
Name, Gender, Race, Right arm, Left arm, armour or robes, and difficulty.

And i'll put the choices into a pot and just before or the night before depending on the amount of donations I'll post a video or do a livestream showing me picking the choices.

You can pick as many as you like just make sure it's clear and how many for each characteristic , and leave the comment to me or on the donation page.

What happened at 48 hours and 14 mins? He took an arrow to the knee? :P

Best of luck with this guys, I'll check out the event page. Oh and do take care of your health while you're doing the marathon, won't you? [/mother hen]

Are you allowed to wear a Dovahkiin helmet and a advert sign saying "Join forums.uesp.net for more pulse-pounding, breathtaking Elder Scrolls goodies!"?

Also what will you be consuming to sustain yourself?

I'd happily wear the helmet, if I could get hold of one.

I'll be eating a lot of unhealthy foods, as we're in a shopping centre(mall) there's alot of fast food places, and during the night I'll be stocking up on crisps and chocolate.

You've now tempted me to play with the Kinect, my only problem would be with the amount of people there, it could not pick up my voice and could end up doing the complete wrong thing at the most inappropriate of times.

I'm a member of Tamriel Rebuilt who knows Jason and Adam IRL, and tomorrow I'll be starting a livestream of the event off my phone from the Wulfrun. I'll provide a link on here so you guys can watch as soon as Adam gives me the login credentials for the group Livestream account :P

Our original goal was how much we raised for the last event we did, which was £200. We've exceeded that though thanks to you awesome people, so we'd like to try and double our previous score now :D Every little helps!

We finished the event at 4pm yesterday, having clocked up 54 hours and so doubling Jason's Survival Horror Game record - he didn't even start on Resident Evil 6! We raised over £526 in donations both online and off, which is pretty fantastic if you ask me :D

Thanks guys so much for all your support, I hope you enjoyed the livestream, and we'll let you know if we do any other events in the future!

Once the event was finished and the main livestream was turned off, I recorded a short interview with Adam and Jason, which is currently available on the livestream page linked above, and also I will probably upload it to my Youtube channel soonish as well, for those that don't want to create a livestream account.
