So, much of the world is stuck indoors right now due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Many people are working from home, practicing social distancing, or even quarantined due to the spread of this highly infectious virus. If you're a tabletop gamer, you may be used to spending time indoors--and now you have more time at home. Luckily, several tabletop RPG publishers have made a lot of their product available for free this week.
Onyx Path Publishing
For the past 2 days Onyx Path has made some of their beloved World of Darkness RPG setting
core rulebooks available for free. This applies to the 20th edition releases of several of their products on PDF. Today's offering is the classic Mage: the Ascension. Tomorrow and Friday will feature other releases, so keep an eye out for them. Mage allows you to play a wizard in the modern day, who hides their magic abilities from society at large, in the World of Darkness setting that includes vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural beings.
UPDATE: Thursday's offering is Changeling 20th Anniersary Edition!
Check out their store for more Friday!
Fantasy Age from Green Ronin:
Fantasy Age is a medieval fantasy role-playing game that has been around for a few years now. It
has the fantasy races and classes that D&D players will find familiar, but with more flexibility, it offers more to players looking for something beyond the standard fantasy RPG. Check it out for free here:
As well, the classic German RPG, the Dark Eye is available as a pay-what-you-want item on Drivethru RPG!
The maker of the revived Top Secret RPG has made that popular classic game available for free for March (and you can still order the boxed set). As well, they have a few other PDFs available on Drivethru RPG for free!
Pinnacle Entertainment Group
The maker of Savage Worlds is offering a bundle of their classic RPG that started it all--Dead Lands. You can get both the Player's Guide and Marshall's Guide for free, which you should since this is one of my favorite games!
While you're visiting these publishers' websites, also make sure you browse around to see if you find anything else that you like. They definitely appreciate your help in this difficult time.
