A new package of desktop RPGs donates funds for reproductive rights

Indie tabletop RPG makers are stepping up in response to the impending repeal of Roe v. Wade in the United States, with most large gaming firms either giving poor or no responses. TTRPGs for Reproductive Rights was released on itch.io today by Roll for Romance, a Dungeons and Dragons podcast, in conjunction with over 200 TTRPG creators.

TTRPGs for Reproductive Rights isn’t alone in its support of abortion rights. After news about the leaked Supreme Court opinion broke, Bungie became the first video game company to speak out, condemning the news and offering support for its employees.

TTRPGs for Reproductive Rights is a $5 bundle that includes over 275 games worth over $1,000. All donations go to Planned Parenthood and the National Network for Abortion Funds. The Abortionists, a LARP (live-action role-playing game) that seems to touch on the narrative of the Jane Collective, a group of women in Illinois who conducted underground abortion services in 1972, is one of the games included in the bundle.

“Bungie is committed to safeguarding the freedom and privacy of its employees and providing support to all employees affected by this decision,” read Bungie’s statement. Psychonauts 2 developer Double Fine also spoke out, saying, “We firmly believe that a decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade would deny people their human rights, and directly impact the lives, freedoms, and choices of everyone in this country.”

Itch.io has become the go-to site for charitable gaming endeavors. Back in March, the platform hosted a bundle for Ukrainian relief, earning over $1 million in its first day. In 2020, the platform also raised over $8 million in its Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, supporting the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund. TTRPGs for Reproductive Rights seems on track to enjoy similar success. Originally, the goal for the bundle was $2,500, but after being live for a little more than four hours, it’s more than doubled that goal. The TTRPGs for Reproductive Rights bundle ends on June 13th.
