Purchased by accident, honestly: I forgot it was in the cart. I already had GURPS HORROR: THE MADNESS DOSSIER in digital form, and while I wanted a print copy… well, my family’s weekly grocery bill has gone up by thirty to fifty percent in the last year. One has to be mindful.
Still, it’s a fun concept for a horror game, full of ancient Sumerian gods, brain hacking, and secret conspiracies to keep reality itself from being rewritten. I definitely can recommend it as a sourcebook. Then again, I could have just said, ‘written by Ken Hite,’ and that would have been sufficient.
Lot of good stuff in this Bundle of Holding, up to and including GURPS Horror (Fourth edition) itself. Steve Jackson Games has gone four editions of that particular sourcebook, and every single one of them was actually justified: the Third Edition in particular had a very interesting campaign setting that had to be cut to make way for stuff in the Fourth edition. Fortunately, they expanded the setting and turned it into GURPS Horror: The Madness Dossier, which is also available in this Bundle of Holding and well worth your time to peruse.
Also, the bibliographies you’ll find in each edition of GURPS Horror are invaluable, particularly if you’re trying to build a library. The only reason I’d argue against buying these in PDFs is because the ones that also have print versions are worth picking up that way.
41 hours for Steve Jackson Games’ 2022 GURPS Pyramid Scheme Kickstarter! So get me some more stretch goals! …No, wait, they’re good. Well. Back it anyway?
