Adventurer! Many talented designers of tabletop roleplaying games have joined to celebrate the Bundle of Holding's seventh birthday with this 2020 Birthday Bundle. You can find all these terrific RPGs and ebooks free elsewhere around the web (links below). But, for just a small donation, you get convenient access to them here on your Wizard's Cabinet download page -- and your entire donation (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, The DOTS RPG Project. The DOTS RPG Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2017, makes roleplaying games accessible to visually impaired players and other people with disabilities.

For a charitable donation of just US$1 you get all six free games and ebooks in our Starter Collection (retail value $0) as DRM-free .PDFs, including Heroes Against Darkness (a d20 FRPG from Hero Forge), Mercator (a conversion of Classic Traveller to the early Roman Empire), and all four issues of the remarkable mid-'90s journal of RPG criticism and analysis from Magnum Opus Press, Interactive Fantasy.

And if you instead donate $2 or more, you'll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with seven more free titles, including all four core books in the Harryhausen-inspired Old School RPG from Legrand Games Studio, Mazes & Minotaurs (the Players Manual, Maze Masters Guide, Creature Compendium, and M&M Companion); Lightmaster (both the Lightmaster Core Rulebook and the essential Book of Tables), the retro-clone from Gurbintroll Games for all those who fondly remember Iron Crown Enterprises and zillions of critical-hit tables; Never Tell Me the Odds, the space-scoundrel one-shot about risking it all; and Icar, the far-future SFRPG of a space empire where humanity's worst enemy is itself.
