Subject:Another bundle offer - Bundle of nerves III
Time:09:02 pm
More horror games as mentioned in my post on the relaunch of the original "Bundle of Nerves" thing a couple of days ago. There's also going to be a Cthulhu bundle shortly.

"This Nerves +3 collection includes several high-profile Kickstarter successes, including Shadows of Esteren and Kevin Crawford's Silent Legions. But the centerpiece is undoubtedly Pinnacle's complete Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition, along with its Horror Companion and two SW campaign settings. In the past we've presented several Savage Worlds settings (notably last month's Hellfrost from Triple Ace Games), but this is the first time we've presented the complete corebook. Hope it's not the last!

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, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children."

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$100. Customers who pay just $9.95 get all three titles in the Starter Collection (retail value $40) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Shane Lacy Hensley's complete 193-page Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition rulebook from Pinnacle Entertainment, and the Savage Worlds Horror Companion (Pinnacle, $20 total retail price).
  • Kevin Crawford's Silent Legions (Sine Nomine Publishing, retail $20): Sandbox-style Old School Lovecraftian terror from the designer of Stars Without Number.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $19.95 to start, also get the Bonus Collection with five more titles (retail value $60), including two Savage Worlds campaign settings:
  • Accursed (Melior Via, $20): The Witchmarked monsters who fight for redemption in the dark fantasy world of Morden.
  • Rippers (first edition) and the Ripper Companion (Pinnacle, $20 total): The original editions of the Victorian steam-tech Savage Worlds setting that just raised $90K+ on Kickstarter for a "Rippers Resurrected" edition.
  • Shadows of Esteren Book 0 - Prologue and Book 1 - Universe (Agate RPG, $20 total): The English translations of the sensational French fantasy RPG that shows its Gothic atmosphere on every gorgeous page.
There's going to be at least one surprise item added to the bonus collection after launch; anyone who buys the bonus collection will get the extra item(s), but the earlier you buy it the cheaper it is.

As usual I have to point out that I get this stuff free, so I'm not unbiased - having seen what's included it looks like a very good deal if you like horror, whether you actually want so many horror games is another story. But there's probably stuff in any or all of them that would be useful for any of the others, or for other horror games, so it should be worth a few quid.

I've always thought they'd shift a lot more copies if they had a lower buy-in price.

That's what these bundles are about - low price and shifting a LOT of copies in a very short time, it makes money for the publisher and doesn't cost them anything, and expands the user base for the game which ought to mean more sales in the long term. I made more money in two weeks from the one that had Diana: Warrior Princess than I did in the previous 18 months of normal sales.
