Free RPG Day was started in 2007 with the intention of promoting role-playing games to those with little-to-no experience in such matters. To do so, participating stores give out free adventures and "Quick Start Rules" to customers. Besides the fantasy monsters that appear in games like Dungeons & Dragons, horror fans might be interested in the following RPGs (which had free giveaways in prior Free RPG Days):
Geist: The Sin-Eaters
Hollow Earth Expedition
And to celebrate in our own special way, here are the first two installments of our "Free D&D" series:
Free D&D: Second Edition
