Today, April 5th, has been proclaimed an international tabletop day. This project, started by Geek and Sundry, is now in its' second year. It's one of the major tabletop RPG days where you could get free stuff.
Besides game days (check the website for today's tabletop game days - in Croatia, you'll find them in Zagreb, Rijeka and Lovran), there are several seriously awesome promotions that are being currently run by DriveThruRPG - if you're into buying tabletop games, they could save you some serious bucks.
First and foremost, there's a free bundle with over $70 of books offered for free. The gem of this offer is certainly World of Darkness core book - while it describes the new World of Darkness (a slightly different setting and ruleset than the old WoD we typically play in in Croatia - see here for the rules we use for Vampire larps), it's a whole system in itself - and should you ever want to run a nWoD larp, nWoD larp rules are almost identical to tabletop ones. It requires supplements for playing other creatures, but rules for humans are available in the core book.
Regarding other interesting content in the bundle, larp-wise you'll find the Obsidian larp quickstart rules - with a post-apocalyptic hellish setting. I'm not really a fan of those rules - besides a huge list of everything, explanations are fairly minimal and they remind me of the 90's Mind's Eye Theatre rules. Besides the larp and larp-related stuff, the bundle contains some cool (and typically paid-for) stuff including Dragons of Faerûn, Progenitor and Scarred Lands Campaign Setting: Termana. Seriously, get that bundle now. While you'd probably not buy all these books yourselves, getting all of this for free is a no-brainer if you're a role-player. There's plenty of quality gaming materials (or at least inspirational if you're not running any of it) in there.
Besides that free bundle of books, there's some top of the line material on sale (Dungeon Crawl Classics, 13th Age, Numenera, Hero Kids Fantasy RPG and Solomon Kane), costing a fraction of its' regular price.
This deal lasts for only a few days so get it while it's hot - DriveThruRPG had some difficulties lately due to high load, but as long as you order it it will remain in your library for later downloads.
