SmiteWorks contributes $3006 to the Climate Reality Project
August 25, 2014
Thanks to the contributions of our Fantasy Grounds community, we were able to match their contributions for a charitable cause. While the exact impact of climate change is a subject of much debate, our community responded with action to help fund an organization dedicated to raising awareness and providing information and support for those who want to take action.
Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that man-made climate change is a reality. By acting now, we can help limit our impact on the environment to ensure that our children will continue to have the same opportunities we had to enjoy our natural surroundings. While we don't expect people to live with a zero-carbon footprint, every little step we take can be multiplied by the millions of people making those improvements and help affect change.
About Climate Reality
In 2006, Nobel Laureate and former U.S. Vice President Al Gore got the world talking about climate change with the Academy Award-winning film An Inconvenient Truth. It was just the beginning of a climate revolution, and later that year, he founded The Climate Reality Project to take the conversation forward and turn awareness into action.
The Climate Reality Project is a diverse group of passionate individuals who have come together to help solve the greatest challenge of our time. We are cultural leaders, marketers, organizers, scientists, storytellers and more, and we are committed to building a better future together.

Digital Adventures Properties Sold to SmiteWorks USA
Effective November 1st, 2009 the Fantasy Grounds II intellectual properties of Digital
Adventures, LLC are to be sold to SmiteWorks USA, LLC. This sale includes the license
agreements held by Digital Adventures with Pinnacle Entertainment Group (Savage
Worlds), Chaosium (Call of Cthulhu), Iron Crown Enterprises (RoleMaster), Troll
Lord Games (Castles & Crusades), Malhavoc Press (Arcana Evolved), Fiery Dragon (Gaming
Tokens), and other Digital Adventures properties and agreements which include The
Complete SRD and the d20 Modern SRD Ruleset for Fantasy Grounds.
This transfer of ownership effectively brings all major Fantasy Grounds products
under one roof. At this time this does not include the few d20 adventures sold for
Fantasy Grounds by Digital Adventures, or the Savage Worlds Online Community (www.savageworldsonline.net).
Digital Adventures itself is not going away, but won't be independently developing
Fantasy Grounds products at this time as this sale is contingent on a non-compete
clause. Future collaboration with SmiteWorks on Fantasy Grounds products is a possibility
but nothing has been finalized.
This sale also includes the October 31st shutdown of the Digital Adventures Online
Store and One Book Shelf account (RPGNow, DriveThruRPG), and those customers are
to be transferred to the Fantasy Grounds Store and SmiteWorks' OBS account respectively.
