The indie RPG scene is a diverse, fascinating, and vibrant part of the TTRPG community. With Level 1: The Indie RPG Anthology, 9th Level Games brings together choice games from the world of indie RPGs in an annual collection published in time for Free RPG Day.

This is a series of officially endorsed, perfect bound books, featuring new role-playing games, RPG standalone adventures, 200 word RPGs, and more! Plus, we release a digital edition one month following print publication.
