RPG Freebies, Bundles, and Sales News (June 19, 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

Quickstarts. Quickstarts never changes. Okay, that one doesn’t work quite as well, but Modiphius released the Quickstart edition of Fallout: The Roleplaying Game based on the post-nuclear video game franchise and specifically set in the Commonwealth of Fallout 4. This game uses Modiphius’s 2d20 System heavily modified to fit the Fallout franchise. This 64-page Quickstart gets you the starter rules for the game, the adventure Machine Frequency, and six pre-generated characters.
  • Price: Free

Do you want your post-apocalypse with more mecha? Leyline Press released a Quickstart for Salvage Union, a unique d20-based game in a world where the only way to survive is on giant mechs called Union Crawlers that house your entire community. Scavenge the wasteland for repairs and upgrades as you try to survive the bio-titans, alien constructs, and megacorproations who still own most of the resources of the world.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $0.00)

If you want a fast, one-page game set in the Old West, Bullets & Bluffs is designed not just for standard westerns but also subgenres like Weird West and Sci-fi/Western. The system uses two standard decks of playing cards for task resolution with no need for dice.

Continuing with the historical theme, Jerod Leupold’s Historical Postmortem: Edgar Allen Poe Edition is a GM-less journaling game based on the Second Guess System. You play as a detective seeking to solve a case in Baltimore, Maryland, of a popular author who has gone missing one foggy night.

Over on DM’s Guild, Anthony Anderson has a trio of subclasses for 5e that subvert standard expectations of fantasy RPG classes.
