Subject:Interesting news for fans of the Gumshoe system

Alan Varney is reviving the September 2013 Bundle of GUMSHOE, a bit like the comedic bundle I was in recently, featuring many Pelgrane Press RPGs of mystery and detection that use the GUMSHOE System by Robin D. Laws. This revival runs through Tuesday, May 5.

http://bundleofholding.com/presents/GUMSHOE2015

The lineup:

STARTER COLLECTION (US$13.95 - retail $62):
- Ashen Stars (retail $25)
- Mutant City Blues ($21)
- Ken Writes About Stuff issues 1-4 ($12)
- See Page XX v1 ($4)
BONUS COLLECTION (starting threshold $28.95 - retail $73.50)
- Night's Black Agents ($25)
- Zalozhniy Quartet ($16)
- Dead Rock Seven ($15)
- Hard Helix ($8.50)
- Fear Itself ($9)

Total retail value: $135.50

The customer can pay any price (minimum $13.95) to get all the titles in the Starter Collection. If you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $28.95 to start, you also get all the bonus titles.

A point that in the past has caused some confusion: 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 higher than average. This is their reward for buying early.

This presumably means that additional titles will be added at some point.

If only they were dead tree books instead of ebooks!

I have Ashen Stars (love it) and Dead rock Seven scenarios for it, plus Nights Black Agents (must run it sometime). I love the "don't roll to get the clues" ethos of the GUMSHOE system.

It's an excellent system in many ways. Agree the dead trees would be nicer, but it's just not going to happen for less than several hundred pounds.
