RPG Freebies, Bundles, and Sales News (July 10, 2022)

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

As I wrote over on the News Digest this week, the popular “Doom Metal” RPG MÖRK BORG has a new free version. This edition strips out the iconic graphic design but still provides you with all the rules needed to play.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $0.00)

The post-apocalyptic RPG Shadow of Mogg also received a new free edition from Leyline Press. Players take on the roles of ordinary members of the British public in an oppressive totalitarian state attempting to survive. This RPG was featured in an episode of Morrus’ Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk if you want more information.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $0.00)

For Savage Worlds players, Thomas Davis has a one sheet with a collection of Mafia Hindrances. The one-page PDF has eleven new major and minor hindrances to add the traditional tropes of mafia and organized crime fiction to your games.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $0.99)

Because players are players, there’s never going to be a time where a table of random encounters won’t come in handy when they decide to head in directly the opposite direction of the plot. Christian Blair has a collection of 1d100 Forest Encounters from minor nature encounters to full-blown adventure seeds.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $1.99)

Over on DM’s Guild, the adventure The Elements of War from Tiela Combs for 3rd level characters with a different kind of Elemental. Earth, Jupiter, Neptune, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Uranus, and Saturn are elementals made of more than one element who have existed for centuries traveling between worlds with the party being drawn into their machinations.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $4.95)


Bundles and Sales

This one’s a bit of a rush as this is the final day, but DriveThruRPG has the Stranger Games Sale going on with discounts on a wide variety of games that influenced, were inspired by, or just have the same vibe as the Netflix series Stranger Things. The kid adventure games of Tales from the Loop, Kids on Bikes, and Monster of the Week are all here along with several classic Advanced Dungeons & Dragons modules involving our favorite one-eyed one-handed archlich demigod Vecna.
  • Price: Varies (30% off)

If you’ve ever tried the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Quickstart Rules, you may want to continue the story from the included adventure The Haunting. The Haunting Sequels Bundle provides three different options for further exploration. Cat’s Cradle brings the investigators back together in a Boston diner after being plagued by nightmares and stumble across strange children with a sinister secret. Dream House has the investigators meet a familiar elderly friend on a snowy night who needs help finding something he’s lost. Of Wrath and Blood has two boys go missing after their family is driven from a haunted house.
  • Price: $8.97 (31% off)

For users of Fantasy Grounds, the Icewind Dale bundle features a collection of adventures, maps, tables, tokens, and more for use in Ten Towns and the surrounding frozen areas of Icewind Dale all ready to import directly into your game.
  • Price: 38.95 (20% off)


Charity Bundles and Sales
