2019 Birthday Bundle

"The Bundle of Holding launched 20 February 2013. We mark the site's sixth 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. But, for just a small donation, customers get convenient access to them here 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.

Customers who donate just US$1 get all four free RPGs in our Starter Collection as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

  • Lasers & Feelings: The brilliant one-page Star Trek system by John Harper (Blades in the Dark), plus assorted L&F hacks that adapt the rules to superheroics, magical-girl adventure, Mythos horror, cyberpunk, Silicon Valley, and more.
  • Engine Heart Deluxe (Viral Games): Little service robots try to survive in a post-organic world.
  • ViewScream 2E (Neoplastic Press): Rafael Chandler's live-action game designed for video chat.
  • Poking the Emperor (Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan): Courtiers vie for the favor of a senile (yet still dangerous) monarch. Parallels to contemporary politics are left as an exercise.

Those who instead donate $2 get all those games and also get our entire Bonus Collection with seven more games:

  • The Lady Blackbird series: Lady Blackbird, Magister Lor, and Lord Scurlock -- three beautiful sandbox-style steampunk games by John Harper.
  • Mythender: Ryan Macklin's full-length heavy-metal fantasy RPG of powerful humans who hunt down gods and End them.
  • Ironsworn (Shawn Tomkin): Dark fantasy and desperate battles in an untracked land -- vow-driven quests Powered by the Apocalypse.
  • Atomic Highway (Gallant Knight Games): Post-apocalypse survival action for your inner road warrior.
  • Forgotten Futures (Marcus Rowland): The original shareware (now freeware) tabletop RPG of Victorian and Edwardian sf/fantasy.

Definitely a must-have, especially if you want to support decrepit games designers. And I'm in it if you want some added incentive...
