The new 2017 Edition of The Microlite20 RPG Collection is now available for free download. The Microlite20 RPG Collection is a PDF compilation of Microlite20 based games. Each individual game is copyrighted separately, is based on the Open Game License (because the original, Microlite20, is OGL), and is available for free. Each game is a separate entity with its own copyright and license. The author of each individual game is solely responsible for his or his work. No editing of individual games has been done. The original 2010 edition was a single volume with around 600 pages. The 2012 edition about 1400 pages. This third, 2017, edition is just over 2000 pages.

You can download the current (2017) edition of The Microlite20 RPG Collection on RPGNow (click here to download) where it is a “Pay-What-You-Want” game with a Suggested Price of $0.00. Just enter a “0” in the price box and you are good to go. (The game is “Pay-What-You-Want” with a suggested price of $0.00 because games listed as “Free” on RPGNow/DriveThruRPG reportedly don’t get counted in the stats correctly.) The current edition is about 2000 pages and is a 63 megabyte download. If you don’t have an RPGNow/DriveThruRPG account, you can get 2017 edition of The Microlite20 RPG Collection via this Mediafire link (but you have to put up with Mediafire’s ads). The first volume of the second (2012) edition had almost 17,000 downloads on Mediafire over the last five years. Microlite20 games apparently really are popular.
