Geek Native reviewed Lancer at the start of the year, the mecha RPG-meets-skirmish strategy game from Massif Press and liked it.
The original RPG is the result of a successful Kickstarter which has fulfilled in digital and has the core rules at the printers. There are a fan-run Discord server and a free to download character builder and compendium app called Comp/Con.
Sound good? It is… but don’t buy Lancer. Not this week. The RPG usually costs $25 from Itch.io. Donate that money to a charity that’s fighting the Covid-19 outbreak or providing relief to those affected by it. Show your receipt to Massif Press, and they’ll give you a copy of the RPG for free.
It should be easy enough to find a charity that’s active in the Covid-19 sphere, able to collect money online and provide you with a proof of the deed.
Massif Press’ generous offer is good up until April 8th, which is when the lockdown in their part of the world is (currently) due to end.
