Some copies of the US release of Rites of War contained two very cool free bonuses. The first was a mail in coupon for a free issue of White Dwarf, the official magazine of Games Workshop (valued at around $5). The second was a full copy (with .pdf documentation) of People's General, SSI's China vs NATO simulation wargame.
