A few days ago Wizards of the Coast started giving away free goodies to their Dungeons and Dragons players. No, you won’t get it in the mail, this stuff is all in the form of .pdf downloads. So far, everything has been pretty nice (especially considering the price!).
They have given out coloring pages (I know a few folks that can’t get enough of these) as well as adventures.
You can check out their content and hoard of goodies here: FREE STUFF
This is what they have to say:
“As an added resource for gamers, the D&D team is pleased to offer the following material as free adventures and resources for use in your games—whether you’re playing in a kitchen table campaign, you’re an active participant in the D&D Adventurers League, or are simply interested in learning more about Dungeons & Dragons and trying it out for yourself. With schools closed around the world, many parents and caregivers are at home with their kids, including many in the D&D community. If you are in need of fun & educational material to share and/or play with your kids, you can check back here each day for D&D stuff to help during this time. If you (or someone you know) is a younger gamer, we’re also releasing resources to make it even easier to get into D&D. Content will be added daily, Monday-Friday. Check back each day for the latest free, downloadable content. Please note that certain adventures are being made free on the DMs Guild for a limited time, so be sure to grab them now while you can!”
Pretty cool if you ask me! I’ve downloaded a couple of the level 1-4 adventures and plan on taking the kids through that this weekend.
I’ve also spoken to two crafty DM’s that have taken these adventures to the next level by using Google Meet to play virtually with their players during these stay at home times, and with the content being free, it’s a great resource. Now, one DM did tell me that she had to warn one of her players to not download all of the adventures, someone that rogue knew exactly where to go to get that one treasure…
