Adventurer! Many talented designers of tabletop roleplaying games have joined to celebrate the Bundle of Holding's sixth birthday with this 2019 Birthday Bundle charity benefit. You can find all these terrific RPGs free elsewhere around the web (links below). But, for just a small donation, you get convenient access to them here on your Wizard's Cabinet download page -- and your entire donation (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, the RPG Creators Relief Fund. The RCRF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity founded to provide financial assistance to tabletop roleplaying creators suffering hardship due to medical emergencies, natural disasters, and other catastrophic situations.

For a charitable donation of just US$1 you get all four free games in our Starter Collection as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

  • Lasers & Feelings: The elegant one-page game of Star Trek-style exploration by John Harper (Blades in the Dark), plus assorted L&F hacks that adapt the rules to superheroics, magical-girl adventure, Mythos horror, cyberpunk, Silicon Valley, and more.
  • Engine Heart Deluxe (Viral Games): Little service robots try to survive in a post-organic world.
  • ViewScream 2E (Neoplastic Press): Rafael Chandler's live-action game designed for video chat. [Previously presented in the September 2016 Indie Treasure Trove 4.]
  • Poking the Emperor (Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan): Courtiers vie for the favor of a senile (yet still dangerous) monarch. Parallels to contemporary politics are left as an exercise.

And if you instead donate $2 or more, you'll level up and get all the Starter games plus our entire Bonus Collection of seven more free games:

  • The Lady Blackbird series: Lady Blackbird, Magister Lor, and Lord Scurlock -- three beautiful sandbox-style steampunk games by John Harper.
  • Mythender: Ryan Macklin's full-length heavy-metal fantasy RPG of powerful humans who hunt down gods and End them.
  • Ironsworn (Shawn Tomkin): Dark fantasy and desperate battles in an untracked land -- vow-driven quests Powered by the Apocalypse.
  • Atomic Highway (Gallant Knight Games): Post-apocalypse survival action for your inner road warrior.
  • Forgotten Futures (Marcus Rowland): The original shareware (now freeware) tabletop RPG of Victorian and Edwardian sf/fantasy.
