LotFP's rolling in to GenCon this year, and to continue the publicity assault I'd like to participate in Free RPG Day this year.
Problem is, it's rather expensive, and there's a ton of money tied up with the releases currently at the printer and still to come, not to mention all these convention booths and flights and hotels. Dumping a few grand now on a publicity tool that wouldn't pay off until summer just isn't happening.
And I don't want to go the crowdfunding route, because even though two major things are finally at the printer now, I'm still behind on several campaigns and I'm not doing the crowdfund thing again until all that is cleared and out. (and I always overdeliver to go along with the tardiness, so I don't feel like paying 10,000€ for a project funded for an original 5,000€ budget... AGAIN. Fuck that noise.)
So here's what I've come up with to try to raise the money:
Pembrooktonshire Gardening Society Membership Drive!
This is for those of you who like print products. You can join here!
Gardening Society members get 1€ off every item* in the LotFP Webstore, and 1€ off every item at LotFP convention tables when presenting their membership cards!
Memberships cost 10€ (+VAT if you're in an EU country).
If you use the LotFP webstore to order LotFP books (and shirts and whatever else we put up there), the Gardening Society is a no-brainer. LotFP currently has over TWO DOZEN NEW projects in development by more than a dozen authors, and even if you have all LotFP releases to date, you will easily be able to make up your Gardening Society fee in savings over time.
This is a push to finance LotFP participation in Free RPG Day this year, so if you're going to join, doing so by February 19 (Free RPG Day signup deadline) would be appreciated. :D

LotFP MegaBundle Sale Over at RPGNow!
This is for those of you who like PDFs. You can get the bundle here!
We've bundled every LotFP PDF ever into one bundle for $100.10 (a discount of over 60% for the entire line!). The Deluxe and Grindhouse editions of the rules are included in this bundle so you can see how LotFP rules have changed over the years.
You can buy the Grindhouse and/or Deluxe Editions separately for $20 apiece if you'd like, but I really wouldn't recommend it.
This bundle is to raise money for participating in this year's Free RPG Day, so the bundle (and the old versions of the rules) disappear after February 19 (signup deadline), so jump quick if you're jumping.
