I just got mailings from Columbia Games that three PDF products are deeply discounted this weekend over at RPGNow: Note: The links above apply the discount code from the Columbia Games emails I received. If you just go to those product pages on RPGNow, you won't see the sale price. You need to use the links.

They've had sales for three or four weeks running now. I hope the trend continues.

Long term Hârn fans who've been looking to expand a PDF collection can certainly benefit by keeping an eye out for the items they need, but I suspect the true purpose of these sales is to reduce the entry cost to new fans.

So, even if they don't directly benefit you, please consider pointing them out to your gaming friends who might be interested. The more people are actively buying and playing Hârn, the more new material can be produced.

What Krazma said.

I generally don't encourage my players to buy material, but the Harnworld module is an exception. When that can be done, we all benefit. 8)

These discounts are great. I have all the printed materials but I find myself using my new tablet PC for all aspects of gaming, so it's much easier to build up my eHârn collection. :D

Thought so. A shame. I've got a copy of the old edition, but would probably shell out for a new one at half price. It's not essential.

There's a sale on Astrology this week. At $4.95, the sale price isn't as steep a drop as some of the others but it's still a good opportunity to pick up the new color version. None of the text has changed but the star charts and some illustrations are now in color.

2. Player map
3. Intro
4-9. History
10-12. Current Situation
13-16. Religion
17-18. Economics
