Another collection of material aimed at emulating the early days of D&D etc.:
This is our fourth annual offering featuring the Old School Revival -- the neoclassical movement to recapture the vigor and style of the earliest days of Dungeons & Dragons. The OSR offers tools, not plotlines -- rulings, not rules -- a gamemaster who doesn't railroad players onto a prearranged script but lets them sink or swim through their own actions. Encounters aren't necessarily "balanced," and outcomes are seldom scripted. Characters who don't use their heads usually wind up losing them. These fantasy RPGs, supplements, and modules are part of the passionate movement to reinvigorate and popularize play-styles associated with the first incarnations of D&D -- whether brown/white-box Original D&D, Holmes-Moldvay-Cook Basic/Expert, or AD&D 1e. Many, many "retro-clone" games recast the rules of one or another of these games in new language.
This huge new collection features vivid campaign settings, strange megadungeons, unsettling modules, hundreds of maps, and -- ta dahhh! -- the new edition of Tunnels & Trolls!
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$112.50. Customers who pay just US$8.95 get all eight titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $42.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
I'll be honest, I'm not a huge supporter of the "old school" movement, I think it's hearkening back to a "golden age" that really wasn't. I'll probably look at the new Tunnels and Trolls because the original game was fun, the rest of it doesn't really appeal to me. But if you like this sort of thing it looks like a fairly huge collection for the money, and probably reasonably good value. But as usual YMMV
