GURPS 4E Essentials, GURPS 4E Fantasy, and GURPS 4E Space. I can recommend the game line: I have all of the stuff available in print, of course, and most of the PDF-only materials. Even at forty bucks for the extended deal it’s good value for the money. You’ve got a few weeks to acquire them, although the extended deal price will only go up…
You would think I would have played Shadowrun more – or, indeed, at all. Elves-and-Orcs cyberpunk sounds right up my alley. But for some reason the best I’ve ever been able to do is buy a couple of the books, and play the video games. The isomorphic ones, I mean. At any rate: Shadowrun Sixth World Essentials is the new Bundle of Holding. May you succeed where I failed.
I’m not in on this because I already have all of THE ESOTERRORISTS, which is Pelgrane Press’s innovative GUMSHOE game of investigating occult horrors and opposing the vilest of cults. Actually, let me check… yup. Got all of them. Well, except for the music. I usually don’t get the soundtracks.
Anyway, this is a good game that thinks about how sensible secret societies fighting vicious terrors might go about making sure their operatives remain sane, discreet, and effective. One does not ‘cowboy’ an Esoterrorist mission, in other words. Or, at least, one does not do so twice. I recommend picking up this Bundle of Holding.
This is actually a pretty good deal. I have Hideous Creatures already, but the Apocthulhu supplements look pretty good and you only need to buy one of these to justify picking up the whole collection. Besides, I have limited room left for physical books.
But only hours remain!
These are PDF starter packs, mind you: and Bundle of Holding seems to be offering them at a 25% discount from list price, instead of their usual super-sale. But the offers don’t expire, either. I recommend NIGHT’S BLACK AGENTS and TRAIL OF CTHULHU, obviously. Fourth Edition CHAMPIONS… actually, I’m not sure about 4th ed. I think I skipped between Second and Fifth editions, there. Certainly it’s been a while since I did any Hero System games…
I have most of the GUMSHOE games in this Bundle of Holding. TIMEWATCH and THE FALL OF DELTA GREEN in particular are fun; if you haven’t picked them up yet… well, there’s a Bundle of Holding, hey? Sort of convenient, that.
PS: I have a playtest credit for TFODG, by the way. Dunno if that’s a selling point for others or not.
This is the old-school, black-cover Traveller: go here and here to get the goods. Bundle of Holding broke ’em down as LLB-1 and LLB-2, all in PDF. Of course, it’s probably good odds that most of you folks have these already, but you never know. Maybe you’d like them on your tablet, too.
More specifically, you want the Suppressed Transmissions and the Robin’s Laws that come when you pay more than the threshold.
Link. The first Suppressed Transmission in particular is retailing in the cusp between three and four-digits, which means that Steve Jackson Games should add it to its Print on Demand service (although that’s an argument against interest on my part, since I have a copy and the kids will need to go to college eventually). So spending twenty one bucks to get the PDFs for that and the Laws is pretty much a no-brainer, if you don’t have the originals.
Oh, and I’m sure that the rest of the stuff being offered in this Bundle of Holding is all right, too.
…Look, whatever the amount on the The Dracula Dossier Bundle of Holding (RPG: vampire spy mashup that features, go figure, Dracula) ends up being, just get the whole damn thing. Totally worth it. You should also consider buying a print copy of DRACULA UNREDACTED, which is… difficult to describe. But worth it to have in your hands as a book, or the mother of all in-game props.
This is insane. This is the Champions TTRPG of my – well, college years. Third Edition was the Champions of my actual ‘youth.’ I dunno if these Bundles of Holding have them all, but between the Champions 4E Essentials and the Champions 4E Universe they comes damned close. My fingers are twitching.
