Right now in the United States, various citizens' rights to biological autonomy is being threatened. This is due to information leaking to the public that the Supreme Court is likely going to overturn Roe v. Wade. This would effectively deny safe reproductive health care and services to those who need it in many states. It is one of the biggest current events in American history right now. Thankfully, various organizations and communities are doing their part to help make voices heard and provide help to those affected by these events. The tabletop gaming industry is no different with the announcement of the RPGs For Reproductive Justice bundle.
The RPGs for Reproductive Justice bundle was organized by The Hydra Cooperative. They are a creator-owned tabletop company that help various independent DIY tabletop game creators publish and promote their work. Hydra Cooperative has stated that all proceeds from this bundle will be going to the National Network of Abortion Funds, an organization dedicated to removing financial and logistical barriers for those in need of an abortion. It stands out among other organizations due to its focus on mitigating shame and stigma towards seeking such services as well as addressing various systemic forms of oppression regarding one's own autonomy based on race, gender, and economic status.
So how much is the RPGs for Reproductive Justice bundle and what exactly is in it? The bundle contains a collection of TTRPG rulebooks, adventures and supplements all being sold at $25. Considering the overall value of the bundle is $582, buying this bundle is getting everything 96% off. Certain TTRPGs of note in the bundle is the latest edition of Green Ronin Publishing's superhero RPG, Mutants and Masterminds, Daedalum Analog Productions' slice of life small town supernatural experience Turn, Evil Hat Productions' Fate Accessibility Toolkit, and the adults-only Honey and Wax by Pelgrane Press.
The RPGs for Reproductive Justice bundle is not the first time the tabletop industry has promoted progressive causes. Back in March, in response to Texas Governor Greg Abbott's discriminatory directives towards the transgender community, various developers and publishers organized and sold the TTRPGs For Trans Rights in Texas bundle, ultimately raising $406,486.87 for charity.
