A group of roleplaying publishers have teamed up to do their bit in helping support those affected by the devastation of hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

The Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Bundle is a collection of digital PDFs for dozens of RPGs, including Lovecraftian hit Delta Green, atmosphere-injecting series Bags of Flavour and the suitably titled A Friend in Need from publishers such as Kobold Press, Arc Dream Publishing, Fat Goblin Games, Ennead Games and Hydra Cooperative, to name just a few.

All in all, the games would normally cost over $500 (£379) to purchase separately, but can currently be picked up for just $25 (£19) on DriveThruRPG, with the proceeds going towards GlobalGiving’s Puerto Rico and Caribbean Hurricane Relief Fund.

Board games publisher Cheapass Games has also announced it will support the aid efforts happening in the US territory.

Those over in the US that donate $10 (£8) or more to the Hispanic Foundation can email confirmation of their donation to the publisher, who has vowed to send out a troll deck for its card game Pairs to the first 100 people to do so. Of course, even if you're not in the US, you can still donate.

Only seven per cent of Puerto Rico’s 3.5 million inhabitants currently have access to power and communications, with parts of the island unable to reach vital food, water and medicine. 34 people were killed after the storm struck in September, with thousands more losing their homes and livelihoods.
