The TORG ETERNITY Bundle of Holding.

I picked up the PDFs for TORG ETERNITY (the TORG RPG reprint) in the Kickstarter a few years ago…

Oh, right. Guess that means I need to run a game in that system next WashingCon.

…Anyway, there’s now a Bundle of Holding for it. Good value. It’s all in color now!

The Tekumel (Empire of the Petal Throne) Bundle of Holding.

I think somebody pointed this out to me, but it’s been a weird few days. Anyway, I’ve heard all my life that the Tekumel RPG setting is simultaneously brilliant, perfect, and completely unbelievable. I have no idea if this is true, yet; but it’s a Bundle of Holding, and since the original is at yeah-right prices, well… this seems the easiest way to find out, hey?

3.5 hours left on the Song of Fire and Ice Bundle of Holding! (#fixitfiction)

The Song of Fire and Ice Bundle of Holding. If you’re inclined to, you know, make Game of Thrones come out right after all, or something*. Certainly waiting for the author to finish it isn’t exactly a viable long-term plan…

…OK, OK, I’ll be good. I was kind of upset myself that we’re never getting an actual ending to War Against the Chtorr. I should be nicer to people who are in a similar bind now.

The Radioactive Bison (and the rest of the Fiasco stuff) Bundle of Holding.

There’s the hard sell, and then there’s this:

Because of a nuclear disaster in 1986, across Belarus, Lithuania, and Poland one can find roaming herds of radioactive bison that are just doing their thing — eating and hanging out with non-radioactive bison, and occasionally getting eaten by wolves or prodded by scientists. This is their story. Radioactive Bison is a one-hour live-action game for 8-19 players in a large room (or a grassy field in Belarus).

The Shadowrun 5e Bundles of Holding.

Shadowrun 5e Essentials and Runs & Guns. It’s weird: you’d think that a fantasy-cyberpunk game with elves and orcs would be right up my alley. I would think that it was right up my alley. But I’ve never really gotten into tabletop Shadowrun. Maybe because of the political balkanization? They’re always breaking up the USA in these things, and the reasons always seem fairly arbitrary, moderately silly, and invariably informed by whatever ax the author wanted to grind that week*.

Still: it’s unquestionably a fun setting. And cheaper than usual to pick up the line.

*Not that I’m ever guilty of that, of course.

The Coriolis/Tales From The Loop Bundle of Holding.

Can’t speak to Coriolis, but Tales From The Loop is rather good.  It’s a kid-based RPG in a 1980s world where strange things happen, nobody ever believes the kids, and it’s up to them to solve the mysteries.  It’s not exactly Stranger Things (aside from everything else, the game defaults to being set in Sweden); more like it and Stranger Things were next to each other when they drew from the same well.

Definitely worth checking out, in other words.  …I think I’m running it next WashingCon, in fact.  Should be a hoot.

The Early Champions/Early Hero System Bundles of Holding.

Wow.  This is like nostalgia, directly injected into the vein.  I had half to two-thirds of the stuff in Early Champions and Early Hero System when it came out; I remember writing up a character background for a Justice Inc. character (Fearless Findlay, ace barnstormer) that my father found and read.  He told me that it was really good.

So, yeah, I’m biased in favor of the early Hero System stuff.

The Nobilis and Chuubo Bundle of Holding.

I can speak to Nobilis: I played in a campaign for that one.  Nobilis is a very interesting diceless RPG system expressly designed to handle characters that can break reality itself.  It does so in large part by having the players deal with the consequences of said breaking, rather ruthlessly.  To give an example: I have tendencies towards power-gaming, so when I joined the campaign I decided that I would take over the world.  I decided to start with China, so I had another player change the universe so that I had always been the Emperor of the PRC*.

The Mutant: Year Zero Bundle of Holding.

I’m picking up the Mutant: Year Zero RPG Bundle of Holding because FunCom’s bringing out the Mutant: Year Zero RPG videogame sometime this year.  I’m looking forward to it!  — Not least because when FunCom makes money, Secret World Legends gets updates.  And I need more Investigation missions that will drive me up the blipping wall.

The Delta Green Bundle of Holding.

This Delta Green Bundle of Holding is for the new edition, which is gorgeous.  It’s a government conspiracy Cthulhu Mythos RPG — although anybody reading this site surely knows this by now, given how I talk about it all the time — and I can personally say that every item in the Bundle of Holding is worth the attention. So get it now, while the threshold price is under thirty bucks.
