A Very Special Message for Free RPG Day

((Click HERE to check out the event's website and find a participating store near you))
This probably isn't much of a surprise to anyone who would be reading this blog, but this Saturday happens to be Free RPG Day. Established in 2007, Free RPG Day is an annual event where participating game retailers receive a number of quick-start rules for different game systems, adventure modules, and other RPG-related merchandise from numerous publishers to give away for free. The reason behind this is to expand the hobby and acts as promotional material for the companies in question.

For those of you who happen to be in the East Texas area this Saturday (specifically Gilmer), you should drop by Halflings Hideaway and pick up some free stuff and possibly purchase something else to support the store.

Halflings Hideaway, specifically, will actually be having a number of demos throughout the day using some of the materials being offered for free. Yours truly will actually be running a demo for the Valiant Universe RPG from Catalyst Game Labs. If you're interested in seeing the schedule, I've got you covered. From 12 to 3, there will be demos for 13th Age and Cosmic Patrol. From 3 to 6, there will be demos for Lamentations of the Flame Princess (which you'll have to prove you're 18 to play), Shadowrun, & Valiant. From 6 to 9, there will be demos for Pathfinder and Dungeon Crawl Classics. Finally, from 9 to 12, there will be demos for Castles & Crusades and Mage: The Acension.

I hope everyone has a fun time this weekend, gets some cool stuff (both for free and stuff you've purchased), and have fun playing some good games.
