Subject:Two more RPG Bundle offers - Osprey Wargames Books and Fat Dragon Terrain
Time:08:28 pm
These are two new bundle offers that are a little different - one is Osprey wargames books which are designed for use with RPG miniatures and settings, the other is Fat Dragon terrain material; printable floor plans and models. Both look fairly useful if your RPGs involve lots of exploration and/or combat:



Osprey Wargames

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/OspreyWargames

"This offer launched Monday, August 8, and runs through 2PM Eastern US time (GMT -5) Monday, August 22.

Osprey Publishing has become one of the world's most successful niche publishers. Originally owned by Berkshire Printing, part of the Brooke Bond tea company in the UK, Osprey was founded to publish the Aircam Aviation book series based on the collectible cards which were then packaged with Brooke Bond tea. Aircam's success spawned a long sequence of nearly 1,500 authoritatively written, beautifully illustrated military histories in nearly two dozen series, including Men-at-Arms (400 books) and Campaign (200+ books).

In 2008 Osprey entered the gaming market with the Field of Glory rules for ancient and medieval miniature wargaming. Since then they've published the popular Frostgrave fantasy miniatures rules and -- to bring the subject around to this offer -- many free-standing books of wargame rules. This offer presents almost a dozen titles in the Osprey Wargames line that range across history and pop culture. These concise, beautifully illustrated manuals are ideal for first-time wargamers.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their ereaders.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, Doctors Without Borders.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$112. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $42) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • In Her Majesty's Name (retail price $14): Ready your Magneto-Static Umbrella and Cody Steam Horse walker for Victorian steampunk science fiction skirmishes in an alternate 1895.
  • Ronin (retail $14): Samurai, ninja, and bandits battle in Japan of the Warring States era.
  • A World Aflame (retail $14): Pulp-era army battles between the World Wars, including the fictitious 1930s British Civil War.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $16.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles (retail value $70):
  • A Fistful of Kung Fu (retail $14): High-flying Hong Kong movie action with martial artists, Taoist sorcerers, hopping vampires, and optional dinosaurs.
  • Of Gods and Mortals (retail $14): Struggles among deities, legendary warriors, and mortal armies of many ancient pantheons.
  • Lion Rampant (retail $14): Last year's top-selling Osprey Wargames title presents simple and fast-playing medieval battles in historical or Hollywood style.
  • On the Seven Seas (retail $14): Campaigns in the Golden Age of pirates (and pirate hunters) worldwide, from the Barbary Coast to the China Sea.
  • Sleeping Dragon, Rising Sun (retail $14): A full-length expansion for In Her Majesty's Name that adds dozens of Asian Companies, mystic Talents, weapons, and a Steam Elephant.



Fat Dragon Bundle

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/FatDragon

This offer launched Monday, August 8, and runs through 2PM Eastern US time (GMT -5) Monday, August 22.

"Fat Dragon Games makes many sets of full-color layered .PDFs with cut-and-fold paper terrain models for fantasy tabletop roleplaying and 28mm-scale miniatures games. Designed for beginning card modelers, the sets in this offer provide hundreds of sheets of buildings, castles, dungeons, ruins, streets, docks, sewers, wilderness terrain, and even a sailing ship. Many files include graphic layers you can turn on or off to customize individual buildings with weathering, stains, moss, and much more. All you need to assemble these models are basic tools: a knife or sharp scissors, straightedge, glue, a cutting mat, and hairpins. Each set includes full-color instructions for beginners -- you can download them free from the Fat Dragon website -- and there are instructional modeling videos on YouTube. The assembled models fold flat for easy storage.

All these sets work with 28mm miniatures rules, including the games in our companion Osprey Wargames offer now in progress.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their ereaders.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, Doctors Without Borders.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$111. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all four model sets in our Starter Collection (retail value $45) as DRM-free .PDFs:
  • Dragonshire Deluxe Edition (retail price $13): A prosperous medieval fantasy village with many buildings and a bell tower. Includes an archive of free models from the Fat Dragon website.
  • E-Z Dungeons Deluxe Edition (retail $15): Build any dungeon layout with these walls, doors, hallways, stairs, treasure chests, and green slimes.
  • E-Z Terrain: Overland Adventures (retail $10): Forest tiles, trees, tents, campfires, and hidden hollows that conceal enemies.
  • Ravenfell: Ruins (retail $7): Two ruined buildings ready for haunting by the nearest undead.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $16.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with six more titles (retail value $66):
  • Winterhawk: Castle Base Set (retail $15): A large castle with gatehouse, towers, and removable roofs and floor levels for interior play.
  • Caverns of Chaos (retail $12): Expand your E-Z Dungeons with these walls, bridges, ledges, and a lava fall.
  • Dragonshire: City Interiors (retail $12): Add these room layouts to your Dragonshire Deluxe Edition buildings, and easily replace them during play. Includes the E-Z Dungeons: Expansion Set 10 (retail $5) with tavern furniture.
  • Medieval Sailing Ship (retail $10): A single-masted cog with removable deck and detailed interiors.
  • Ravenfell: Sewers (retail $12): Includes rats and an alligator.



At least one additional item will be added to each of these bundles after launch - anyone who pays more than the average will get them regardless of when they paid. I'm not allowed to say what they are.

These both look like reasonably good offers and good value for money - I'll definitely be looking at some of the Osprey material, the terrain material is a bit less useful for me, but ought to be very good if you're running a fantasy campaign. As usual I have to point out that I get this stuff free if I want it, your mileage may vary.
