- Cmdr Beetlejude and a bunch of streamers, including
- Learned that Orange Pheonix, who has helped the community so much with his work in SPVFA and Sagittarius Eye, only has access to a 2nd hand ‘Gaming Laptop’ with a GTX 660 in it. Due to his real life situation he’s not in a position to replace it so that he can run Odyssey and, against his initial protests, have created Operation Warbucks to help him get a PC so that he can join us all in Odyssey. They feel that a man of his artistic talents would be sorely missed in Odyssey so we want to help him join us there. Our target is £1600 If we achieve this target – anything above will be donated to Health in Mind Scotland.
