Free RPG Day Haul: Did You Get Yours?

Posted By Monica Valentinelli On June 21, 2011 @ 9:35 am In Blogs | 3 Comments

[1]Wow. This year’s free RPG day freebies were outstanding. We decided to shop at NobleKnight.com [2] because we were looking for a copy of the Hellboy: Sourcebook and Roleplaying Game [3] — and found it!

At Noble Knight, we snatched a first edition, first printing from this fully-illustrated edition published by Steve Jackson Games. Also included in the “paid” portion of our haul, was the Pathfinder campaign setting Undead Revisited [4]. I can’t help but think the name implies a double dose of necromancy — as if one wasn’t bad enough!

This year, the games for Free RPG Day were clearly marked on the cover. I, for one, think that was a good idea and is a great way for collectors to distinguish what they are and when they were produced. The freebies we picked out was Nightmare at Hill Manor [5] for White Wolf’s World of Darkness. This quickstart is the same size as the majority of their other books and offers over fifty-five pages of content.

We also acquired the Dragon Age Quickstart Guide from Green Ronin Publishing, which is a precursor to the Set 1 Box. Not sure if you’ve played the video games, but there’s a huge difference between Dragon Age: Origins [6] and Dragon Age 2 [7]. I almost think Dragon Age: Origins is a better fit if you want to play a bloody dark fantasy game.

Yeah, okay. So there’s two more things we picked out. The Waking Dead is an introductory adventure to All Flesh Must Be Eaten [8] by Eden Studios. We’re happy to see some new product come out of Eden Studios, especially since the zombie craze is still going on.

Last but not least, we have in our possession Savage Worlds: The Wild Hunt. This particular freebie is really timely, because we just finished three sessions where we experienced different themes of the Savage Worlds [9] system. It’ll be interesting to see what the new books are going to be like.

What about you? Did you pick up anything new?
