RPG Freebies, Bundles, and Sales News (February 26, 2023)

Welcome to the Bundles, Freebies, and Sales News, the weekly column at EN World that helps make sure you don’t miss out on big tabletop RPG bundles, charity fundraisers, and sales from around the internet.


Freebies and Pay What You Want

Note: While “Pay What You Want” downloads are available for free, please support the creators if you are able!

Starting off, we have the Ultimate Reverie Jumpstart from Alb’ for Savage Worlds. This setting book has the rules you need to play in the JRPG-inspired setting along with eight pregens, 17 monsters, and a complete adventure. Just add the Savage Worlds core rules!
  • Price: Free

Old School Role Playing has a new adventure for the Cepheus Engine (aka Traveller), Corporate Politics. The meek accountant Leo Davies wants to advance in the Mega Corporation in the traditional way – take out the boss and take their position. And he’s willing to pay to help take them out.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $2.00)

Old School Role Playing also has a tool for the Cepheus Engine (though it will work well for any sci-fi setting), 1001 Cargoes for the Frontiers of Space. As the title suggests, it’s a list of various items that can be cargo whether it’s something the group is asked to haul or items hidden in the hold of a pirate ship.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $6.00)

Avast! F.B. Knauder has a one-shot RPG Rum & Bones featuring – and I’m just going to quote the description because this sums it up perfectly – “a bunch of drunk pirates with rum-fueled super powers looking for treasure.”

If you need a post-apocalyptic settlement for a specific 2d20 System game that is not particularly named here, Joseph Kellogg has the NPC Settlement Rules supplement. Random settlement generation, settlement statistics, random encounters, rules for designing custom settlements, prices for goods and services, and more. (Fallout. This is for Fallout. They can’t say it’s for Fallout because there’s not an open license for Fallout since it’s a licensed game, but this is for Fallout.)
