Free RPG Day is celebrating its 10th year this weekend, with dozens of shops around the UK and the rest of the globe getting ready to offer free roleplaying rules, modules and accessories to players looking to get into the hobby.

The first Free RPG Day took place in 2007, following the format established by Free Comic Book Day, which aimed to attract more followers to the world of comics.

Shops worldwide will be giving away plenty of free promotional goodies from RPG publishers – the rules of the event state that at least one item must be freely available just for asking, while others might be rewarded for participating in other ways depending on the shop.

Other free giveaways include a quickstart guide and adventure for Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG, Monte Cook’s Numenera: The Spire of the Hunting Sound and a Pelgrane Press quickstart for 13th Age and TimeWatch, among others.

There’s accessories up for grabs, too: Q Workshop and Chessex will be giving away custom dice, Paizo has a pack of cards for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Wyrd is offering a set of Through the Breach miniatures, Blue Panther has a Knockdown dice cup and audio app Syrinscape is handing out its Steam Train to Salem Cthulhu Mythos soundset, not to mention isometric gaming paper, status tokens and T-shirts from other roleplaying firms.
