Go, go go! From today (Thomas Crapper Day) until February 3rd, all Broken Ruler Games’ products listed on DriveThruRPG and their affiliate sites are 50% off for all PDFs and 25% off for a print copies. It’s the most comprehensive and heavily discounted sale we’ve ever done and just like so many other big sales based on holidays, it has absolute nothing to do with its namesake date.
Well, maybe there is a connection to…. nah, that’s a stretch. What are the odds BRG’s owner & publisher is related? There’s gotta be a lot of Crappers in the UK. That’s like their version of Smith, right?
We’d also love it if everyone reading this shared it on their own preferred social media channels and feel free to get creative with it. Play up on the family name with tweets like, “Don’t flush your money away!” Or “Broken Ruler Games has wiped their prices down to 50%.”
Just click here to visit our DriveThruRPG page before February 3rd.
(Please note DriveThruRPG’s sites will be down on Monday, January 28th for site wide maintenance so we’re making what’s called a “soft launch” for this sale today. Once the site is back up and running again on Tuesday, we’ll be making a bigger push.)
Hello, Broken Ones, and welcome to 2019. It’s been quiet here on the website. A little too quiet. After dealing with some family matters in the last couple months of 2018, BRG is back in the swing of things with our first big event of the new year.
It just so happens that Sunday, January 27th is Thomas Crapper Day and we’re just drawn to doing something to mark this day. Not sure why. There’s just something about this infamous and yet-unknown engineering hero that speaks to us. From January 27th to February 3rd, we’re going to have some huge discounts on all PDFs and PODs (print-on-demand) products on DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, and all other OneBookShelf affiliate sites.
But we also need to get the word out and that’s where we could use your help. We’ll be doing what we can to get the word out and any shares, retweets, likes and more will help get the message out there. Plus we have this swanky graphic to go with it, so feel free to download and share to your hearts content.
You can find all of our games listed here on DriveThruRPG.
We were once a beautiful world, young and fertile. Nothing but hope and opportunity lay before us. We were the chosen ones of our creators and lived a lavish lifestyle. Until the All-Father revealed his jealousy of the love his children gave to their creation and not him. His wrath nearly wiped us out. Now we are the enslaved and oppressed in the Five Cities, or those risking it all in the Wastes. But there are some who call no place home. They wander between all places and live by their own rules. Will any of them rise up to become the mysterious heroes we need
