RPGaDay 2015 – Day 29: Favourite RPG website / blog

29/08/2015

Short Answer: DriveThruRPG.

Long Answer: An online store may seem like an odd choice, but DriveThruRPG really is a great RPG resource. Especially in a country where it is hard to get your hands on the less mainstream games. While they primarily deal in RPG, they’re doing so well they’ve been able to extend into books, comics, and wargaming material – all available in digital formats.

What makes DriveThruRPG so great? They don’t just sell the books, they store them as well. Everything you purchase through them gets added to your account’s library. This acts like a cloud storage solution for your books, but with one added advantage. If the gaming company updates a book you’ve purchased, you can download the new version of the file right away.

DriveThruRPG is also a great way to discover new games. The Browse sidebar lets you filter the thousands of books on offer by Genre, Rule System, Publisher, and even price. I mentioned their Free Stuff section at the start of the month, and it’s worth repeating here again. Set the price filter to $0 the use the Genre and Rule System selectors to quickly find something that matches your interests. I won’t guarantee you’ll find something good, but free is free after all.
