Free RPG Day and Cthulhu for charity

Posted by WJWalton on Sat 16 of June, 2012 07:14 PDT
Two items of note that came to my attention recently:

- Today is Free RPG Day! Check with your Friendly Local Game Store to see if they are participating, and see what freebies are available. For more info, visit the official site at

- My friend Jeff Woodall brought this to my attention - Dockside Dogs is a Call of Cthulhu scenario published by Chaosium with the benefits going to Relay For Life UK. For a mere $5 you get a great CoC adventure (with what appears to be a Tarantino heist theme), and the opportunity to help out a great cause. See Chaosium's page for more information, and pick up the scenario at DriveThruRPG. (I'll be getting mine as soon as I'm done with this post!)
