Time:08:11 pm
Two collections of horror games - one is all-new, the other is a repeat from 2014:

Bundle of Nerves +4

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Nerves4

"This is our fourth annual collection of horror RPGs, as always part of our "October Horrors" sequence. This year we're accompanying this all-new +4 offer with the revived Nerves +2 collection from October 2014. Still ahead: a new collection of zombie RPGs and the annual Bundle of Tentacles collection of Mythos games.

This collection includes Kickstarter successes like Undying (a diceless Apocalypse Engine tribute to Vampire: The Masquerade), Breakfast Cult, and the unusual Ten Candles, a game of tragic horror played entirely by candlelight.

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, Save the Children.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$117. Customers who pay just US$8.95 get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $45) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • EPOCH (Imaginary Empire, retail price $8): The "Experimental Paradigm of Cinematic Horror" -- character- (and card-) driven horror-movie survival adventure.
  • Shadows Over Sol (Tab Creations, retail $15): Hard-sf horror in a dark Solar System two centuries hence, from the designer of Against the Dark Yogi.
  • The Hell House Beckons (Kiel Chenier, retail $12): An Old School haunted-house toolkit and adventure of brain-cauterizing terror.
  • Sins of the Father (Third Eye Games, retail $10): You're hellborn -- your soul was sold long before you were born. Can you get it back?
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $22.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with six more titles (retail value $72):
  • Undying (Magpie Games, $15): A diceless Apocalypse Engine game of generational vampiric intrigue, a tribute to Vampire: The Masquerade.
  • Demon Hunters: A Comedy of Terrors (Dead Gentlemen, retail $15): The 2015 Fate-based Second Edition of this ridculous-horror RPG of small-town monster fighters.
  • The Cold Ruins of Lastlife (Magpie Games, retail $10): A Dungeon World Chaos World of undead characters seeking lost memories.
  • Breakfast Cult (Liberi Gothica Games, retail $15): School days meet the End of Days in this Fate Accelerated game of detention at Occultar Academy.
  • Ten Candles (Cavalry Games, retail $10): Tragic horror in a darkened room with ten tea candles. When the last candle goes out....
  • EPOCH: The Experiment Continues (retail $7): New rules and four scenarios take EPOCH into new horror-movie genres.
At least one more title will be added after launch; "When a title is added after launch, ALL customers who previously purchased the bundle automatically receive the newly added titles, REGARDLESS of whether or not they paid higher than average. This is their reward for buying early."


Bundle of Nerves +2

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Nerves2-2016

"This revival of the October 2014 Nerves collection of horror and dark-fantasy RPGs runs in parallel with the all-new Bundle of Nerves +4, the fourth annual collection in this series. Note that this +2 offer runs for only a week and ends before the +4 offer does. This is to provide room in the schedule for two offers launching next week.

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, Save the Children.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$109. Customers who pay just US$9.95 get all eight titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $47) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Dead of Night (retail price $10): Andrew Kenrick's RPG of campfire tales, slasher movies, and B-movie horror.
  • Little Fears Nightmare Edition (retail $12): Jason L. Blair's revamp of his classic RPG of childhood fears.
  • Hell For Leather (retail $5): From Cobweb Games, Sebastian Hickey's darkly gory game of a hyper-violent TV show. Bowl your dice without knocking over the tower of d6s! Includes three "Frame Libraries" that adapt the game to new settings.
  • Pickets & Blinds (retail $10): Kevin Allen Jr.'s storytelling game of murder in the American Townscape.
  • The Legerdemain Betrayers (retail $10): Daniel Cruz Chan's game of four novice magicians awaiting, or escaping, execution.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $21.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles (retail value $62):
  • Monsters and Other Childish Things (retail $15): Kids and the sanity-devouring cosmic horrors who love them, from Benjamin Baugh and Arc Dream Publishing. Rated #16 out of 60,000+ titles in the authoritative RPG.net Game Index.
  • The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor (retail $15): A companion sandbox-style campaign, equally high-rated, for Monsters and Other Childish Things.
  • Lacuna Part I (retail $15): Jared Sorensen subtitled this "The Creation of the Mystery and the Girl from Blue City." That's not meant to tell you much; just play it.
  • the farm (retail $5): Jared Sorensen's deeply disturbing game of hunger and horror.
  • Happy Birthday, Little Fears (retail $12): The 10th Anniversary Edition of the original version of Little Fears, which differs in important ways from the Nightmare Edition also included in this offer.
There aren't going to be any extras on this one since it's a repeat of an old offer.

Both of these include a lot of material by some very good authors. I'm not very interested in most of them since I pretty much burned out on horror games a long time ago, but they seem good value and if I was more into the genre I'd probably be a lot more enthusiastic. But as usual I have to point out that I can get this stuff free if I want it, which may affect my perception of its value - to repeat an old cliche yet again, your mileage may vary.
