    If you are not paying for it, you are not truly enjoying it.

    Great RPGs can be had on GoG for a few dollars. What is the point in pirating anything these days?

    Card Hunter is a pretty fun free to play tactical game with a nice pen and paper feel to it. Looks like pay-to-win crap but its perfectly playable for free. Card based combat might not be everyones cup of tea though.

    I keep forgetting about Unreal World although I've been playing it every day for the past 2 weeks and have already played it multiple times in the past.
    that's a randomly generated survival RPG with perma-death (which can be avoided by copying the save folder and pasting it into the main folder, after you've died). this means you'll have to play in short bursts if you don't want to possibly lose 1h+ of progress.

    Eschalon Book I is free on Gog. It's basically a full 20 hours game free of charge. If you like it, you can get Book II and III for pennies.

    Well said. Cataclysm DDA and Doom RL - are both fantastic games. Well, ADOM is not bad either but I haven't played it nearly as much as the other two.
