Freebies and Pay What You Want

D&D Beyond released the first of the Spelljammer Academy adventures meant to introduce the classic setting to new players. The adventure titled “Orientation” is for first level characters and takes about two hours to run placing the cadets into a simulator to learn the ropes before their first adventure.

The OSR-inspired RPG Rascals places the players in the roles not of glorious heroes, but the downtrodden who seek to improve their lives by looting an ancient tomb or helping a village ward off an ancient curse. The trick is you have no magic and you don’t level up, so the goal is to simply survive. The game is also released under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license so you can use it to create your own content as well.

Christian Eichhorn released NEON BORG, a solo microadventure for CY_BORG. You live in NEON BORG, a prison for the worst of the worst criminals that has been converted into subsidized housing and is now an overcrowded nightmare of aged corpkillers, filthy nanomancers, burned hackers, and you.

Okay, I have the opening theme to Sailor Moon stuck in my head thanks to this one, but the Magi-Knights Project brings us the 5e Magi-Knights Supplement that converts 5e to support magical transforming girl and Sentai-style heroes.

Looks like it expired after I posted it. Unfortunately, most bundles on DriveThruRPG, DM's Guild, Storyteller's Vault, etc. don't list when they're ending.
