This year Free RPG Day was Saturday, July 25, 2020. Designed to support your favorite local games stores with increased traffic, participating stores had exclusive new adventures, as well as giveaways and prizes. But in this time of social distancing, many plans were askew. Some stores were closed, others had curbside pickup.
Using the Free RPG Day database I discovered a new game-store/pub near my home that I knew nothing about! On the 25th we lined up at least 6 feet apart. They handed out products outside, so going inside was not required to participate. They let a few of us inside at a time, all masked up. And they had ice cream! I’ve returned twice.
Now, 30 days later, our adventures Starfinder Adventure: Skitter Home and Pathfinder Adventure: Little Trouble in Big Absalom are available as free downloads! Print copies are available for $5.
The adventures include pre-generated characters, are short, and great for beginners. Pathfinder Adventure: Little Trouble in Big Absalom is the first volume for Pathfinder Second Edition and stars first level kobolds! Whereas Starfinder Adventure: Skitter Home intended for four 4th-level skittermander characters who are looking for some fun before jumping into action like the helpful heroes that they are.
You can also go back and start Starfinder Skitter Shot at first level and play Starfinder Skitter Crash, which is intended for four 3rd-level skittermander characters.
If you participate in the Pathfinder or Starfinder Societies, you may play the adventure and apply credit to one of your Society characters of the same level (or a new first level character). More detailed instructions for earning credit and the chronicle sheet listing in-Society rewards are available as a free download on the product page for each adventure. Games run on Free RPG Day retroactively earn credit and players should contact their GM to get their chronicle.
We’ll be sure to announce any virtual tabletop partners who make these available.
Support your favorite local game store, there would not be a Free RPG Day without them!
