RetroRoleplaying’s EVERYTHING for $29.95 Bundle — Take Two

Government Reopening Sale

Last month, to celebrate the new year Retroroleplaying.com bundled every game we’ve published into a single “Everything” bundle for $29.95 (less if you already owned some of our games). Unfortunately this one week sale was during the US government shutdown and several people told us they wanted to take advantage of the offer but could not because they were not being paid (even though they were required to work in some cases). Now that the government has reopened and government workers are getting paid again, we’ve decided to repeat the January offer by making this low priced “Everything we have published” bundle available for another seven days. This bundle includes all of our games, paid and pay-what-you-want. Yes, this includes our most popular paid games — Microlite74 Ultimate Edition, BX Advanced, Microlite81 Advanced Expanded Edition, Microlite78 First Edition Lite Expanded, Microlite20 Comprehensive Edition.

You can get the bundle on : RPGNow or DrivethruRPG

What’s the catch? This bundle will only be available for seven (7) days. One week. After February 7th, this bundle will disappear. So if you’d like to get a large number of games for a very low price, you’ll need to act fast.

OSR.SPACE Soft Opening

While OSR.SPACE isn’t complete, it is far enough along that we are ready to accept some registrations and let people start using the forums, groups, and other areas of the site. As you can see, it is pretty bare content-wise right now as I’ve been concentrating on getting the site up and running. If you are a fan of Old School Tabletop Roleplaying Games (either the original games or their modern clones and variants), register an account and become a founding member of the OSR.SPACE community. Of course, you can post messages in the forums, use the groups (including starting your own groups), etc. Our rules are short and sweet. Feel free to invite your friends.

The OSR.SPACE soft opening is really a beta test. I don’t expect major breakdowns, but some stuff may not work or may not work as expected. Please report issues in the Soft Opening (aka Beta Test) Issues in the Site and Community forum in our Community Discussions area.

Be sure to check out the Around the OSR page!

* Okay, there is a bit more to it than this. This bundle really only exists because I lost a bet with my BX Advanced Adamantine Edition playtest group. You really have to thank Jim for this sale. His character managed to survive Nobert’s Meatgrinder, a one shot adventure with pre-designed characters intended to torture-test the rules as they stand now. I predicted a total party kill. The players said “Wanna bet?” and I did. Jim’s mutant thief managed to make it out of the adventure alive — although with only 2 hits points left and with none of the treasure the party had found. However, even one character surviving by the skin of his teeth was enough. I lost the bet and this New Year’s RetroRoleplaying Everything Bundle is the result.
