Another RPG bundle offer - 2021 Birthday

This is a slightly odd one because it's selling stuff you can download free if you look for the right sites, and will only last a couple of days. But all of the proceeds will be going to a charity which aids game creators who have fallen on hard times, which I have to consider a good thing even if I hopefully will never need to take advantage of it it.

This offer launched Friday, February 19, and runs for just three days, through 11PM Eastern US time (GMT -5) Sunday, February 21.

RPG Creators Relief Fund logo"The Bundle of Holding launched 20 February 2013. We mark the site's eighth anniversary with this benefit offer featuring high-quality free RPGs we wouldn't otherwise be able to present in the Bundle format. You can find all these .PDFs free elsewhere around the web (links below). But, for just a small donation, customers get convenient access to them on their Wizard's Cabinet download page here on the Bundle site -- and the entire donation (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, the RPG Creators Relief Fund. The RCRF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity founded to provide financial assistance to tabletop roleplaying creators suffering hardship due to medical emergencies, natural disasters, and other catastrophic situations.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their devices.

Forge Engine RPG coverCustomers who donate just US$1 get all three free games in our Starter Collection as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the universal Forge Engine from Hero Forge, the fast and simple superhero RPG Kapow!, and a historical story game about the suffragette movement, Deeds, Not Words.

No Security - Fall Without End horror scenario coverAnd if they instead donate $2 or more, customers receive the entire Starter Collection and also get our entire Bonus Collection with eight more free games and scenarios, including the mordant horror-satire Apocalypse Engine game The Happiest Apocalypse on Earth, the high-crunch strategic FRPG Zafir: Tactical Roleplaying, Zap! (the science fiction version of Kapow!), and five scenarios of cosmic horror by Caleb Stokes (Red Markets) set in the Great Depression, originally presented in the 2013 collection No Security: Bryson Springs, Revelations, The Fall Without End, The Red Tower, and The Wives of March.

I haven't had time to take a good look at the books, but it seems to be a pretty good idea, and there's enough diversity in the games that most people should find something they like: where else will you find an RPG about the Suffragettes? Recommended!
