Free RPG Day 2014

I’m well aware that this upcoming Saturday is Free RPG Day. I’m also well aware that I have to work this Saturday (which is odd for me), so I probably won’t even have a chance to hit a game store at all, let alone in time to pick up any free goodies. Ah well. Such ...

Free RPG Day — Bust

For the past few years, I’ve participated in Free RPG Day as a collector and reviewer of materials. I’ve done this for the past five years, and reviewed almost everything (I fell short last year) I collected each year. It didn’t happen this year. *sigh* I was evacuated from my home due to the Black Forest ...

Saturday Six: 2013-06-15

Happy Free RPG Day! Enjoy it! I am late on the Friday Five by a couple of hours. I received word this evening that I could return home after the Black Forest Fire was at 30% containment. There is still tons of work that has to be done in order to stop the fire from spreading and ...

Free RPG Day 2012 Review: Map of Harn

Free RPG Day 2012 Review: Map of Harn
One of the items I picked up from Petrie’s Family Games for Free RPG Day 2012 was the Map of Harn. The front side of the poster-sized paper is a suh-weet map of the island of Harn. I’ll admit that I’ve never played in the realms of Lythia before even though I own quite a ...

Free RPG Day Reviews Beginning

I’m finally going through the loot I picked up at Petrie’s Family Games last month. Life has settled back down to a state of semi-normalcy. I’ll be posting two reviews per week until I’m through the materials. That gives me 4 1/2 weeks of posts. I have eight physical items to review, and I’ve managed ...

Free RPG Day Purchase: Arcanis

Free RPG Day Purchase: Arcanis
I hit my FLGS today and picked up a copy of Arcanis for my RPG collection. I reviewed the Free RPG Day offering here, and I was so incredibly impressed by the work I found in the free book that I picked up the full RPG today. I wanted to get it earlier, but finances ...

Free RPG Day: 2001 — Final Report Card

How was the overall offering for this year’s Free RPG Day? Very excellent, I must say. The highest grade was A+ and the lowest was C-. A good range and none were failing scores. Most of the books from this year received at least an A- or higher. Here’s the breakdown of the final grades ...

Free RPG Day: A Nightmare at Hill Manor (WoD)

Free RPG Day: A Nightmare at Hill Manor (WoD)
At 64 pages in length, this is a tome for a freebie! When I first picked it up, I thought I had two copies in my hand because of the thickness and weight. When I realized that it was a single offering from White Wolf, I was quite happy to have it in my pile ...
