Free RPG Day is an annual event that celebrates the roleplaying game community and industry by encouraging various publishing companies to get involved and provide players with a collection of free RPG content. Players can get their hands on free quickstart rules, campaigns and other pieces of content both online and at local participating stores across the world.

This year’s event will include a bundle of free content for several roleplaying games, with some pieces already having been confirmed and others yet to be. One of the announced pieces of free content will be Threshold of Knowledge, an adventure for the fantasy RPG Pathfinder: Second Edition which is designed for 1st level players, alongside an adventure for the spin-off sci-fi roleplaying game Starfinder called The Starfinder Four vs. The Hardlight Harlequin, both coming from Paizo.

Another piece of free content coming with Free RPG Day 2021 is Bertram’s Grove, a booklet for Root: The Roleplaying Game - which is adapted from one of the best board games released in the last few years - that will enable players to start experiencing the RPG from Magpie Games. Inside the booklet will be a selection of pre-generated characters and a write-up for a clearing that players can explore.

The Soulbound roleplaying game, which takes place in the Warhammer: Age of Sigma universe, is featured in this year’s Free RPG Day 2021 via an introductory adventure called Reap and Sow - wherein the player characters will be attempting to defend a settlement in the Realm of Death from an army of undead. An adventure for Victoriana, a steampunk inspired fantasy RPG from Cubicle Seven, the studio that’s also responsible for Soulbound, will be included in the event.
