So Frok got Sonic Generations into SGDQ to make it one of three games into a very strong Sonic Block. Since flights are very expensive from Greece to Midwest US, I offered to help do a fundraiser marathon for him to get the money he needs to make it to SGDQ. The donations will be going to flight costs and anything over will go to help other runners make it to SGDQ.

Here is the details:
Dates: May 6th - 7th
Submissions: From now until April 22nd at Midnight (PST)
For any other questions, we have a discord server: https://discord.gg/RJzBYym

FAQ:
How much are you looking to raise?
- Around $1000 dollars to help cover his flight and hotel costs for SGDQ.

Will there be night shifts?
- Yes.

How can I help?
- Spread the word, submit runs, and we will need help with restreamers and donation readers. If you want to help get in touch with Frok or me in the discord link above.

Drill Dozer
System: GBA (emu)
Category: Any% NG+
Estimate: 2:00:00

This is a 2D puzzle platformer from the makers of Pokemon. The game is known for its great music, wacky boss fights and unique gameplay.
Played on NG+ so that the speedrun can skip cutscenes, a drill upgrade that lets you skip sections, and enough HP to damage boost through the entire game.

Sonic Advance
System: GBA Player on GC
Category: Sonic/Tails/Knuckles/Amy (can do Bid War)
Estimate: 0:30:00
Description: Basic sonic game that's reasonably fast and has a few out of bounds. While this is technically the slowest of my offerings, it hits the "classic sonic" feel the best. Character abilities play a big role in completing stages quickly, giving this game a strong bid war option.
Video Link: Can be found for each character on https://www.speedrun.com/Sonic_Advance

Sonic Advance 2
System: GBA Player on GC
Category: Sonic/Cream/Tails/Knuckles/Amy (can do Bid War)
Estimate: 0:40:00 if bid war, 0:30:00 if sonic only
Description: Likely the fastest 2d sonic platformer of all, featuring boost state. Sonic is by far the best and fastest with air dash and makes the run technically impressive; however non-sonic characters are mostly the same and uninteresting, though a character bid war can be done. Bosses are notoriously difficult and fickle but impressive when done quickly.
Video Link: Can be found for each character on https://www.speedrun.com/Sonic_Advance_2

Sonic Advance 3
System: GBA Player on GC
Category: Any% / Best Ending
Estimate: 0:50:00 / 1:30:00
Description: My personal favorite of the advance series, featuring the partner system. Tag Actions, team variety, and level variety all make for a lot to commentate on and makes this a very complex yet still fast speedrun. Best Ending has more team variety and interesting routing than Any%, requiring collection of all the chao and chaos emeralds; however, it also requires watching the credits and going through autoscrollers. I strongly prefer to run Best Ending, though it can also be done as an extra incentive.
Video Link: Can be found for each category on https://www.speedrun.com/Sonic_Advance_3

Sonic Rush
System: Nintendo DS
Category: Sonic/Blaze All Stages (can do Bid War)
Estimate: 0:55:00
Description: First of the rush series with boosting. This speedrun basically goes through each stage and boss through stage select. Sonic moves faster than Blaze, but Blaze has hovering and farther tricks, making the bid war a strong option. However, the bosses are notoriously luck-based and can lose several minutes, hence the generous time estimate. The earlier zones are also bland compared to the other rush games.
Video Link: Can be found for each character on https://www.speedrun.com/Sonic_Rush

Sonic Rush Adventure
System: Nintendo DS
Category: Any% / All Emeralds
Estimate: 1:10:00 / 1:50:00
Description: Second of the rush series. This run goes through a full fresh game, uses both Sonic and Blaze, and has the most creative and coolest levels out of the rush games; however, this run also includes cutscenes and boat minigames, and is also the longest of the three rush games. Bosses are considerably less stupid than Rush's. All Emeralds works as a incentive and/or extra category to fill time if needed; it involves extra Johnny Races (aka fast), extra hidden islands, extra missions, and super sonic/blaze!
Video Link: Can be found for each category on https://www.speedrun.com/Sonic_Rush_Adventure

Sonic Colors DS
System: Nintendo DS
Category: Any%
Estimate: 0:35:00
Description: Basically Sonic Rush 3, but with wisps and no tricks nor Blaze. This is the shortest of the rush trilogy, and has the popular sonic colors zones & music. This also has air boosting and stomping (neither in Rush nor Rush Adventure), making the game even faster-paced. Wisps add some variety in the movement. The bosses all have impressive quick kills that are reliable and not stupid like in Sonic Rush. However, this doesn't have a strong incentive that I have prepared.
Video Link: Can be found for each character on https://www.speedrun.com/Sonic_Colors_DS

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
System: GBA Player on GC
Category: Ephraim Route / Eirika Route
Estimate: 1:25:00
Description: Strategy speedrun that is completely RNG-manipulated, making it both not-luck based but also punishing if I make a mistake. It features abusing a few powerful characters, with a bit of variety here and there. I've routed this game myself personally so there's a lot to commentate on. This game has a route split partway through, where you pick one of the two main characters to follow; this involves a different set of chapters, and completely changes the route because of that. This makes for a strong bid war option between ephraim and eirika routes. I'm also running this at RPGLB17 so this would be good marathon practice for me!!!

Description: Super Mario Bros is one of the most popular 2D platformers on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The warpless category shows all 32 levels of Mushroom Kingdom that Mario has to venture through to save the damsel in distress; Princess Toadstool, or as we know her today as 'Peach'. With the power of the Fire Flower, Bowser will have no chance going up against our mustachioed hero. This will be a blast from the past for all gamers and viewers to enjoy.

Category: Neutral Story
Estimate: 25:00

Star Fox 64
System: Nintendo 64
Category: 100%
Estimate: 1:27:00 (1 hour 27 mins)
Description: 100% requires getting all 15 stage medals on Expert Mode. Star Fox 64 is a rail shooter game with off-rails sections, and this run is very visually impressive and has a very high skill cap. There are a few donation incentives that have proven to be successful at other marathons (Sunshine for Veman, Speedrun to Change the World), so this should be able to raise a few bucks, or fill a late-night slot if you need runs.

Mario Party
System: Nintendo 64
Category: Minigame Island Any%
Estimate: 00:45:00 (45 mins)
Description: Mario Party Minigame Island is a run that only really be described as "Meme Hype". This run is an absolute joke and an absolute riot, a ton of really funny stuff can and will happen, you'll weep, you'll cry, you might want to die. It'll be a good time. This run requires a test of patience as players go through 9 worlds of minigames in a board game fashion to reach the end of the game. There are lots of ridiculous strats in this run and it's sure to be an entertaining 42 minutes and 13 seconds. Also you could make donation incentives to pick character and partner.

Game Name: Sonic Heroes

Category: Team Sonic
Estimate: 1:10:00
Description: A rather unique game featuring a 3-character team that you can switch between at will. The fun doesn't stop there though, because each character still interacts with their 2 AI teammates for nearly all the moves giving a lot of speedtech, crazy glitches and hilarious nonsense.

Game Name: Sonic Colours
System: Wii
Category: Egg Shuttle or All Chaos Emeralds
Estimate: 55:00 or 2:05:00
Description: A mix of 3D and 2D Sonic goodness featuring the boost system, a ton of movement options and powerups in the form of wisps. Egg Shuttle is the fastest the game can go and featured a bunch of big breaks, wheras All Chaos Emeralds is a collect-a-thon that shows you every stage the game has to offer.
Video Link:



Game Name: Golden Sun: The Lost Age
System: GBA (played on Gameboy Player)
Category: Any% (English)
Estimate: 6:10:00
Description: Arguably the best entry in an RPG series loved by many. The game's main feature is the Djinn system which brings a ton of battle effects, summons and character classes. The speedrun offers some sexy menus, a ton of reactionary gameplay, instances of both major and minor RNG manipulation and a wide variety of glitches from wrong warps to (blind) out of bounds movement to duplication glitches to puzzle skips.

Game Name: Cthulhu Saves the World
System: PC
Category: Any%
Estimate: 47:00
Description: A silly and "Oh god how is that even possible" level-of-menu-speed RPG. Utilizes a wide variety of boss strategies to beat the game quickly, and is routed in a very precise way. Offers a short RPG speedrun experience where a lot can happen and it depends on the player's ability to respond quickly.

Game Name: Ys: Memories of Celceta
System: PSTV
Category: Any%
Estimate: 3:15:00
Description: Action RPG with fantastic music, a variety of boss strats, a high skill cap which demands the player to know the game and have good timing in order to maximize crit bonus damage from well timed guards. Half the game is spent Fred Dursting (i.e. rolling rolling rolling) around a lush and colorful landscape and traversing dungeons, while the next half you traverse through more dungeons but this time you're basically given Sonic's boost mode and it never runs out. Sonic the Hedgehog wishes he could run as fast as you do for the second half of this run. Also this is the run I will be doing at RPG Limit Break a week later.

Game Name: Sonic 3D Blast
System: PC
Category: Beat The Game

Game Name: Nihilumbra
System: PC
Category: Any%

Description: Puzzle-platformer with some interesting tricks and an insane skill cap due to the need to control your character with WASD and use the mouse to color the world around you at the same time. Charming yet relaxing game.

Game Name: Ys Origin
System: PC
Category: Any% Toal EX
Estimate: 1:30:00
Description: The run I will be doing at SGDQ. Action RPG with tons of glitches, exploits and tricks to the route, with awesome music, epic bosses and very fast movement. I'm putting this one at the bottom as I would rather this one be taken if all my other offers are deemed significantly less desirable (so as to offer a different variety from the Get Cyd to RPG Limit Break Marathon), and would somewhat prefer to run those ones, though I would be absolutely willing to run this as well.

I also could do a really bad blind-ish run of Generations if we wanted to do some kind of hilarious "this is how a casual does it, now watch how Frok destroys it" thing. That would probably take me about 2:00 - 2:30 based on previous blind race times.

Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)
System: PS3
Category: Any% Glitchless or Glitched
Estimate: 25 / 30
Description: Its the first ever Sonic the Hedgehog. Seen as though Generations is being ran at SGDQ 2017, it makes sense that Sonic 1 should be here. Sonic 1 is a platformer made by SEGA and you (as Sonic) need to go through 6 zones to beat Dr. Robotnik. It is a very fun speedrun to watch in my opinion, as there are a lot of frame perfect jumps in there, zips etc.

Console; PS3
Description: LittleBigPlanet is a physic based platformer but there are 3 layers you can move in (Front, Middle and Back layer). So as this game is  physic based, you can get massive amounts of height (this is done by falling on your face and jumping). Some of these techniques are as follows: RCJ (also known as super jump), LCJ (also known as quad) and Banana Jump (Also known as inverted super). Thats just to name a thew.

Description: After showing the glitchless category, I can also show off how broken gen 1 Pokemon is with this 15-20 minute run, which uses multiple glitches to reach the hall of fame, without save corruption which is the glitch that allows us to beat the game in 0 in game minutes (Note that the video link is a run of the old blue route, new route uses red)

Game Name: Attack on Titan/A.O.T. Wings of Freedom

Category: Any% Female Titan

Availability: Flexible, depends on what day I'm scheduled at work (I usually get my schedule for the week the wednesday before) would probably work best early evening in case, latest I'd be willing to start would be sometime before midnight

Game Name: Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
System: Xbox 360
Category: Any%
Estimate: 2:10:00
Description: Nuts & Bolts, while notorious for all the wrong reasons, is actually an underrated gem and an amazing speedrun. The game's broken physics allows us to not only use crate hovers (16:43) and laser fence grabs (22:08) get the best items for the early game, it also allows us to break the missions in creative ways (1:43:51). The run also allows us to use premade vehicles, which adds personality and flair unseen from most speedruns

Game Name: Super Smash Brothers
System: Nintendo 64
Category: Classic Mode Kirby 3-Stock Normal
Estimate: 0:09:00
Description: Mainly submitting to run during Nuts and Bolts intro, I usually run it during the game's 9 minute unskippable intro during my attempts of N&B Any%; the fast-paced action and quick adaption to random enemy patterns makes this a great watch. Beating it while running another game only increases the entertainment. Would be fine if another SSB runner takes spots as long as the category is >9 minutes. Also a note about the video, Smash is only during the 1st 9 minutes, the rest being Nuts and Bolts.

Game Name: Sonic CD 2011
System: PC
Category: All Good Futures (Sonic)
Estimate: 0:35:00
Description: In most Classic Sonic games, in order to get the true ending you must collect all of the Emeralds by going through the special stages. However, in Sonic CD there is another way to get a good ending. Completing All Good Futures means using this game's time travel mechanics to travel back in time and breaking the generator in every level in order to get a good ending. There's also some cool strats done in order to travel through time that are not seen in Any%, such as using the Future sign to time travel and hitting a past sign right before time travelling (03:10) (06:20) and clipping through walls with time travel (21:14).

System: ? (Prefer to play on Wii U but I accidentally updated it so I might have to settle for PC Version)
Category: Hero Mode Non-Shop Collectables 1.0
Estimate: 1:40:00
Description: Shantae's latest outing is her most broken adventure yet! She has many items and transformations at her disposal, a good chunk used to clip and skip through the game! Watch her GemJug Clip through right walls (26:26), Dryad Clip through ledges (41:58) and left walls (29:00), Harpy Clip into small passageways (1:01:45), use Mouse to clip through slopes (22:48) and slip through deadly lasers (49:25), skip an autoscroller (1:18:05) and more while collecting everything that doesn't need to be bought
