Weeklong Deals for 10/4/21

Such a lean lineup of Weeklong Deals this time! I don’t know how it happens, but sometimes we only get a few hundred instead of the usual 1000+. There’s still some gems to extract from this mess, between the soothing Eastshade, the intense Project Warlock, and the endless expanses of Caves of Qud. You’ll also find some real trash, of course, which hopefully provides either a little entertainment or a cautionary tale in learning about!
