    Free RPG Day 2009

    June 4, 2009

    For the third year running, summer heralds one of our favorite days of the year: Free RPG Day! If you’ve not heard of it nor seen it in action, it’s a total blast. The kind folks at Impressions Advertising have seen it fit to petition a huge number of role-playing publishers to create exclusive product to hand out to the local gaming community on Saturday, June 20th. We’re supporting it by holding one-shot, convention-style role-playing sessions in the store all day long, and you get to reap the rewards by playing and being a part of the festivities. 

    If you’ve ever been a part of our GRPA gaming events, you have a good idea of what Free RPG Day will be like. Even now, we’re taking submissions from a talented stable of GMs for games to be run during the day. We’ll be posting our lineup of games very soon right here on the website, and all you have to do is sign up. No previous experience is necessary, so it’s a great chance to try out a system you’ve been eyeing for a while. Once you’ve got a confirmed spot, show up on June 20th, take home some of the free product, and have a blast with the other gamers who will be here!

    The list of sponsors this year is impressive, including Wizards of the Coast, White Wolf, Goodman Games, Fantasy Flight, Lone Wolf, Mongoose, and a bunch more. Each of these publishers has created a special gaming book for the event, and they’re all free for you to enjoy. And while we can’t break out the goodies until the 20th, we can tell you that a couple of the highlights include an intro to the new World of Darkness game and an awesome Eberron adventure featuring a horde of Warforged.

    Keep your eyes here for more as it comes, and if you’ve got a game you’d like to run, send in an abstract and we’ll review it for submission to the event. Don’t forget to keep Saturday the 20th free – for Free RPG Day!
