The Prize Vault!

As I write this Worldbuilders is just about to finish up the first full week of it’s two-week-long fundraiser. We’ve also raised over $385,000, which isn’t too shabby.

Now that I’m back from unplugged, I’ll be livestreaming over on twitch every day through the end of the fundraiser. If you haven’t joined us there yet, you should stop on by!

Here’s the streaming schedule we have for the rest of the fundraiser:

If you want to give the channel a follow, you’ll get notifications of other things that happen outside those official streaming times. Like, for example, the D&D game we’re playing tonight on Tuesday Dec 10th at 9:00 CST. (I’ll be hosting that on my channel.)

Check out this awesome trailer:

By now, I hope you know that for every $10 dollars you donate to Worldbuilders, you get a chance to win fabulous prizes…

But what some of you might not know that in *addition* to those prizes, over the years I’ve gotten into the habit of giving away stuff for people who donate on my twitch team homepage.  In the past, I’ve picked prizes fairly randomly. But for the rest of this year’s fundraiser, we’re going to experiment with something I’ve wanted to try for a long time.

Instead of me just picking things off nearby shelves all higgledy-piggledy. We’re going to let the winners choose what they’d like. Some are cool things available from our online store. But other prizes will be items I’ve had made over the years, or things that have sold out in the store, or just odd treasures that I’ve hoarded so that I could give them away some day…

Here’s our current list of things in the treasure vault:

  • Gold Talent Pipes

I had these special made by Badali Jewelry to give to people who make my life better. If you ever see someone wearing one, you know that they’ve done something that made me happy.

  • My signature Pat Rothfuss Bullshit Card

  • Personalized books

I’ll deface it with my signature and write a message in it too, if you like….

  • A D&D card of your choice 

You can see them all over here.


  • Signed copies of The Adventures of The Princess and Mr. Whiffle.

  • An Eolian mug

  • Any t-shirt from Worldbuilders Market

(Two of my favorites….)

  • Vintish court rings

  • An Iron Drab

This is one of the prototypes we’ve made for the next set of Cealdish currency.

  • A Draccus King of Tokyo card

For when you absolutely need to eat a tree and destroy a city.

  • Art Decks

(Except you’ll get the cards in the boxes, too.)

  • Signed Rick and Morty Comics

Cause y’all know I wrote one, right?

  • One of the few remaining Owlbear Plushies

If you’d like to get a piece of this action, now’s the time to do it. I’m doing a bunch of catch-up draws on today’s stream (Tuesday Dec 10th) So for every $10 you donate on the page before then, you’ll be eligible for all the 10 extra draws we’re doing, as well as all the rest of the goodies we’ll be giving away through the rest of the fundraiser.

And no, you don’t have to be present on the stream to win.

Here’s a link to the page one last time, just in case you need it for anything….

See you on the stream…

    As I read this it is 9pm Tuesday 10th…then I forget I live in the future and it’s like…4am there, so a while yet!
    So before the streams arrive, I am putting together another donation to help toward your goal!

    Thanks for the awesome work you do Pat, it’s much appreciated <3

    This is very frustrating… when I go to the Worldbuilders page, the screen is locked, I can’t donate! Twitch page says you’ve reached the target. I’ll try again later. Could be because I’m from the UK…? No idea why, probably the goddamn election.

    Boo! I’m going to miss most of the streams due to my work schedule and living on the west coast! Good luck raising ALL OF THE MONIES!!!

      Sorry you won’t be able to catch them live. But all the videos are archived, so you can watch them after the fact.

      (Also, just in case I forgot to mention, you don’t need to be actively watching the stream to win stuff. Either in the main lotteries, or the daily prize draws.)

    Sending love and encouragement your way. So excited for this fundraiser every year. That DnD stream was epic.

    Looking at the hoard, there’s a little voice inside that wonders if there is still an Adem emotion shirt lost somewhere in depths that may be claimed..

    I would love to see this book in a giveaway! Or republished for sale! Or is it just a myth?

    Hey Pat!

    I just want to say what an inspiration you are. You took something you are really good at (telling stories) and turned it into a way of helping (tens of? Hundreds of?) thousands of people worldwide and I think that’s incredible.

    I also wanted to let you know I chose Elodin as my Battlenet ID, and I have consistently have people tell me in chat how much they love your work.

    You might not feel like it everyday, but you are an inspiration to everyone, and if the world could be more like you, it would be a better place.

    My Respects,
