Freebies and Pay What You Want

As I wrote over on the News Digest this week, the Vampire: The Masquerade Nexus is in early access but doesn’t include character creation. However, if you need some help with making a character for Vampire, Bex Archer has the Vampire: The Masquerade Character Creation reference document on DriveThruRPG that gives locations in the core rulebook for the appropriate rules and collects several tables for quick reference.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $0.00)

The Dungeon’s Key released Drifting Offline | A subspace anomaly for DEATH IN SPACE, an adventure with a rather unique space encounter. Your ship has been eaten by a M-Class Harvester, trapping you inside and forcing you to explore the three levels in order to find out where this mechanical terror came from and how to escape.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $5.00)

With the classic children’s tale Winnie the Pooh entering public domain this year, it was only a matter of time before a tabletop RPG popped up. From Identical Games comes Writing Winnie the Pooh, a light storytelling game featuring Pooh and his friends that only requires a standard deck of playing cards.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $1.00)

Over on DM’s Guild, Rui Ribeiro has the adventure The Vampire Cure that places the party in the midst of a vampire attack that may be more complicated than it first seems.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $0.00)

And…okay…I’m going to break my normal format a bit because there were a lot of new classes and subclasses posted this week. A lot. A lot. All of these are Pay What You Want, so I’m just going to list them all out along with the authors and what is listed as the suggested price.

So every week I always want to say this. Pay what you want stuff on DMsG isn’t free. It’s free to get and see all of, but the author would like you to rebuy and pay the suggested price if you like it and will use it. the author is giving you latitude to pay him more or less than the suggested price but if you’re gonna use that sweet take on an artificer, you should pay. Obviously you don’t have to, but if you don’t you’re a super jerk.

just saying, not free

I completely disagree with you, because you aren't taking into account those players who are poor, or unemployed, or from poor countries, or even from marginalized communities – they may want to pay but they can't, because their money is tight (even more so for those who are paid in local currencies which are valued less than dollar). Are those people jerks to you?

Finished The Fifth Season... Really enjoyed it. How are the sequels? I mean, I thought it was well written, and I didn't always know what was next..... Though as we sped to the end, it was getting easier to predict..
