Subject:Another RPG bundle offer - Worldbuilder's Toolkit +5
Time:11:14 pm
Another collection of material aimed at people who design their own RPG campaigns and settings.

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Worldbuilders5

This is the Bundle of Holding's fifth annual collection of gamemastering ebooks that help you design RPG campaign settings and run adventures. Of the Bundle's various annual or recurring series (Old School Revival, Fate, Cornucopia, Nerves, Tentacles, etc.), the Worldbuilder's Toolkit series has been consistently the most successful.

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, Heifer International.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$103.50. Customers who pay just US$12.95 get all three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $51) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

  • Be a Better Campaign Master, Book One: Building the World (Absolute Tabletop, retail price $13): Michael Barker of the BeABetterGameMaster YouTube channel helps you create a world map, step by step.
  • A Magical Medieval Society: Western Europe Third Edition (Expeditious Retreat Press, retail $18): The new 2016 edition of the venerable reference work about the nuts and bolts of medieval cultures.
  • Sly Flourish's Fantastic Locations (Sly Flourish, retail $20): The author of The Lazy DM's Guide gives you 20 fabulous and fascinating system-agnostic settings you can drop into any FRPG.

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $24.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with three more titles worth an additional $52.50:

  • Ultimate Toolbox (Alderac Entertainment, retail $30): Four hundred pages, that's 400 pages, of tables and adventure seeds for any fantasy game system.
  • Kobold Guide to Plots & Campaigns (Kobold Press, retail $10): Nineteen essays by 13 expert gamemasters including Jeff Grubb, Zeb Cook, Margaret Weis, Robert Schwalb, and many more.
  • Palladium Compendium of Weapons, Armour, & Castles (Palladium Books, retail $12.50): This 232-page Fifth Printing (1999) of the classic 1981 treatise debuts here in electronic form as a brand-new .PDF with searchable text. This Compendium is currently available only in this offer and nowhere else.
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 title, REGARDLESS of whether or not they paid more than average. This is their reward for buying early.

I'll be honest, there isn't much here I need for myself; I've been rolling my own worlds for a very long time, and have ways of doing this stuff for myself. But if you're just getting started with your own campaign, or want to develop something that isn't a clone of everyone else's work, there may be useful material. It looks to be good value, but as usual your mileage may vary.

I'm going to pass on that stuff. I've been building my own worlds for decades now, as you have. And some of the included material seems to be not "build a world" but "make stuff up for your campaign," which is even less a problem. Even so, I'm glad to have you listing these!

Thanks - a lot of this stuff doesn't interest me much, but there's an occasional gem and I know that someone out there will be going "oooh!" for each offer, so I might as well blog them all.
