Modiphius Entertainment Makes a Statement on Ukraine and Announces Charity Donations
Chris and Rita Birch, founders of Modiphius Entertainment, are sharing the following statement regarding the Ukraine. Along with this, the company has launched a charitable campaign where all proceeds from the sales of the PDF versions of the company’s tabletop RPGs, wargames, and adventure products sold via the company’s online store or via DriveThruRPG, will be donated to Ukraine-relief charities.
“We have all been deeply affected by the events of the past week and we at Modiphius deplore the humanitarian disaster unfolding due to the invasion of Ukraine and we join the cries for an end to the war,” say Chris and Rita.
