Ziggurat Con

So, interestingly enuf, the U. S. Army is going to hold a D&D/Wargaming Convention in Iraq: Ziggurat Con. However, there are a few logistical problems:

The largest problem with running a Con in Iraq, of course, is that there are no local stores or game publishers, and few game books on the post. Even dice are in short supply, with many soldiers breaking the unwritten taboo held by many gamers and sharing dice.
Sharing dice! That ain't right.

Well, you can help. If you've got dice, rulebooks, or other related stuffs in your back closet that you know will never see the light of day, ship 'em overseas.

They’re planning to run the following games (and will be happy to get additional games):
Babylon 5 RPG, Cyberpunk 2020, D&D, D&D RPGA, GURPS, Historic Miniatures Battles, Magic Tournament, MechWarrior Miniatures, Rifts, Shadowrun, Starship Troopers, White Wolf System-Vampire, White Wolf System-Werewolf, and XCrawl.

C'mon, how are they going to crawl that dungeon if they ain't got no twenty-siders?
