RPG Freebies, Bundles, and Sales News (June 12, 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

D&D Beyond has two freebies available right now. The Vecna Dossier is a stat block for the archlich Vecna before the betrayal of Kas that cost him his eye and hand along with a brief summary of his history. For those who make use of the virtual dice, D&D Beyond also has a set of rainbow digital dice for use on the site that look like geodes with rainbow crystals inside in celebration of Pride Month.
  • Price: Free
  • End Date: June 30, 2022 for the rainbow dice

On DM’s Guild, Brendon Speed released the second volume of his collection of new backgrounds for Dungeons & Dragons. This book features three new backgrounds: The Monster Hunter, The Eternal, and The Diplomat. Volume One was released back in February.

Speaking of monster hunters, Christopher Thomas Grabowski gives us the Monster Hunter’s Guide, a collection of lore on creatures and how to handle them.

There’s a total of twelve new magic items, a new feat, and twenty-five pieces of mundane adventuring gear.

Witching Metal posted Chain Reaction – Blood Horizon, a roleplaying game with its own system inspired by No Country for Old Men that places the players at the center of a drug deal in the desert that’s gone wrong. The campaign tells the story of a chase across all of North America (assuming you can survive to get away).

Fans of Call of Cthulhu can pick up the adventure The Bloody Viscount’s Return by Damián Ubide Díaz. A degenerate nobleman from the court of Vienna carried out unimaginable acts in service of an evil entity that controlled his mind. Now in 1920, the entity that controls the Viscount’s body has returned to renew his reign of terror.

If you want the urban fantasy/horror theme for 5e, PhD20 has the adventure Terror in the Clock Tower for first and second level characters. The party explores a ruined clock tower in an adventure that emphasizes exploration and problem-solving.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $4.99)

And with a Tunnels & Trolls 5th Edition adventure, Forgotten Oubliette of Forgetfulness released Ferverax and the Valley of Gleam by Andrew Walter. This low-level adventure originally designed for convention play is a fast-paced adventure that allows characters to level-up several times by drinking from magic fountains. The adventure includes a hand-painted map of the play area, a “crappy map” (the description’s words, not mine), three new magic items, new monsters, and “an invisible castle (not pictured)”. Just to set the tone.
