that dice is awesome! today was my birthday, and so I missed searching out a free RPG day compliant store in Aus in preference of what I thought would be lunch but turned out to be a surprise party: the point is, a dice that has my birthday on it would be cool. I'll have to see if my game store contacts can get one to me.
sorry if this is rambling, I'm still on a sugar high.

I picked up A Time of War, Cosmic Patrol, and the DCC book. I also found an RPG from the 80s that isn't in the database yet.

My local store didn't order in time! Noooooo! Sad day.

I was hoping for something Pathfinder-ish and Dungeon Crawl Classic-ish. Hoping some friends end up with an extra!

Good luck to all - get some great stuff and get it into our database

Nice! Looks like the Shadow D&D module and Pathfinder We Be Goblins are from last year's free RPG day. Green Ronin has a Dragon Age Quickstart if you missed it from last year's Free RPG Day.

Dave, if you check the publisher's sites, see if they have a PDF version of their Free RPG Day product. Better yet, head to DriveThruRPG and check out their extensive free PDFs, including various quickstarts, and Monte Cook's additional Ptolus material. Save a tree and save some gas!

I got the dice tower, the 40k module, the Harn Map (I'm kinda obsessed with maps) and the Brass & Steel module. Our FLGS let you pick up 2 items only, so we stopped by 2 of 'em.

I donated some Dungeon Crawl Classics reference sheet booklets I had printed out and stapled. For the freebies, I picked up Dawn of the Scarlet Sun and Dungeon Crawl Classics Free RPG Day 2012.

That crafty FLGS was also throwing a 50% sale today only, so I also picked up...

Fortress America
Kingdom Builder: Nomads
Dwarven Dig!
and
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary

Good haul!

Stopped by two FLGS's and got the freebie for Conspiracy X, the Shadowrun/Battletech Quickstart, the Pathdiner Dawn of the Scarlet Sun, and the 40K Module.

Last yea's Pathfinder module was a joy, hoping this one is as fun.

Our FLGS only let you pick one thing from the pile of books. I grabbed the Conspiracy X quickstart and MistressGeek picked up the Shadowrun/Battletech quickstart.

We were going to hang around and play but of course I've been ill, so it was just a grab and go.

As I'd mentioned in the other Free RPG Day thread, my Kickstarter went live today and part of it is a preview which I'd at least deem is on level with a "Free RPG Day" item that you could pick up at the store.

So, in celebration of both my KS and Free RPG Day, if you want something else, you can download the Wyrm Rider, compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

The store I normally go to wasn't doing Free RPG Day this year, so I had to go to another store. I was limited to one free item, so I grabbed the Battletech/Shadowrun quickstart. No Cosmic Patrol in the store, and I had no use for the Hârn map, given that I already have two copies of it: in Hârnworld and a promotional pack from Columbia Games that had the front cover to Hârnworld, one other book, and the map.

A rather dull Free RPG Day this year, IMO.

Cheapskates!!!

My FLGS had the package already prepared for me, I only put away those books I didn't want meeple

But that is probably because I'm one of their best customers ...

Noble Knight has most of the freebies for a penny. They'd like you to spend at least $15 per freebie you want to order. They had a number of other things for a penny as well. The site is www.nobleknight.com

what a loot without going, you may praise yourself lucky. You can also buy a couple on ebay already

Probably someone who read and played all off them I guess and now is trimming his own collection? devil

Yeah, I always clear some of my backlog on RPG day in the webshop. Got eleventh hour and dungeon crawl classics coming my way. Maybe I should've picked the cosmic patrol as well. Maybe next order.

Yeah, I really don't like the ebay thing. These are supposed to be freebies - I got about a dozen extra copies of things last year from my store (they didn't give it all away on Free RPG day) and I made sure they got into RPG Geeks hands for free.

Anyway, I'll probably run some of these here on RPG Geek PBF someday so I'll return the good karma for my friend picking them up for me!

I doubled back to get the DCC item for somebody here on the geek and picked up the Pathfinder and Conspiracy X freebies as long as I was there.

My event went well! I Would have liked to see more people, but, we did get 3-4 new RPG players, plus a few who hadn't played in several years. Definitely got some interest up.

Highlight:

~12 Year old commented, during Only War "This is better than a video game!"
