RPG Freebies, Bundles, and Sales News (September 11, 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

Note: While “Pay What You Want” downloads are available for free, please support the creators if you are able!

Wilsonian Games brings us an interesting mash-up bringing the ability to play in the “Sixth World” using CY_BORG rules. The templates allow players to create the standard playable races from Shadowrun using the CY_BORG rules, covering the Dwarf, Elf, Ork (yes, with a k), and Troll.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $1.00

Ever looked at fantasy RPGs and wondered why they bothered with any other class than bard because they’re obviously the best? Well then By String and Song by Ethan H. Reynolds is for you, a short d20 based RPG where everyone’s a bard.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $2.00)

Bartholomew Klick released The Nightingale, a rogue archetype that lets you bring out your inner anti-hero. This third-caster subclass gains access to the Paladin spell list as a third-caster with a focus on locking down a single target in combat to allow the rest of the party time to breathe and take care of the rest. The PDF also comes with a FoundryVTT compendium.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $1.00)

Over on DMs Guild, Luke Beahan gives us City Adventures, a small supplement to help expand your 5e urban campaigns. Seven new backgrounds for city-dwelling PCs, a new rodent race, and a table of city adventures seeds ready for the fantasy mass population center of your campaign.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $1.00)

I’ve always felt it odd that there’s not really a good class choice for archers as the existing martial classes don’t have the focus you’d expect. Daniel Yim apparently feels the same with the release of Archer Class & Subclasses featuring a full martial class dedicated to the bow with three subclasses: The Gadgeteer, The Show Shooter, and The Yonru.
  • Price: Pay What You Want (Suggested: $2.00)

As you know from previous columns I love random tables for quick prep and idea brainstorming, and Dndspeak certainly came through with five different tables! All are Pay What You Want with a suggested price of $1.00.

I grabbed the Dr Who bundle, even though I am not sure why they included three different Core books in it, but even factoring out the cost of the two older ones, it is still a great deal and a good charity. I made sure to put in a decent chuck over the minimum for it and used the custom adjustment to up the portion going to the charity.
