A constantly updated list of offers and free RPGs to better face this quarantine period
We have never been as united as in this moment. Have you noticed? Since we all stopped due to Covid-19, solidarity initiatives and activities are blossoming to feel close even from a distance. Among these, many indeed very many concern the world of RPGs. Manufacturers, distributors and authors are working hard to help us endure the quarantine to the fullest, offering their games and often giving them directly to their passionate fans.. And through tools such as roll20, Discord or the most famous Hangouts we have the opportunity to play from home and not lose the habit and the beauty of this passion that makes us feel alive.
This is why we have decided to create a collection of the offers and free RPGs you find in this period. We will keep it constantly updated, so you can come back at any time and find out how many splendid acts of generosity are blooming due to the Coronavirus. And if you find any, you are welcome to report them in the comments and we will add them with pleasure.
Need Games' digital catalog at half price
The first of the offers concerns some of the best-loved and best-known RPGs. Need Games, an editorial company that we have been following with interest and pleasure for a long time, has decided to put the entire digital catalog on offer at 50% for the entire month of March. This is your chance to retrieve great titles like The Legend of the Five Rings, The Witcher RPG, Vampires La Masquerade and 7thSea. As well as setting manuals and supplements to play in company through the screen. An opportunity definitely not to be missed. Find all the games on offer in the needgames.it shop.

An opportunity to immerse yourself in a Necropunk world and give free rein to the journeys of the imagination.
