Third Halloween Bundle offer - Bundle of Tentacles +3

This is the third of the horror-related RPG bundles to go on offer in the run-up to Halloween, and features Cthulhu Mythos related RPGs and supplements. - may not be on line yet.

"This is our third all-new installment in the annual Tentacles series, where each October we present a collection of Cthulhu Mythos-inspired horror RPGs and adventures. 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 Electronic Frontier Foundation.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$98. Customers who pay just $8.95 get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $37) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Island of Ignorance - The Third Cthulhu Companion (Golden Goblin Press, retail price $15): Five scenarios and eight articles for classic 1920s-era Call of Cthulhu. Includes the Deluxe Handout Pack from Cthulhu Reborn.
  • Age of Cthulhu: The Long Reach of Evil (Goodman Games, retail $7): A globe-trotting series of investigations in Peru, Sumatra, and Tibet.
  • Cthulhu Live! LARP 3rd Edition (Skirmisher Publishing, retail $10): The current edition of the classic rules set for live-action Cthulhoid roleplaying.
  • Mythos Society Guide to New England (Skirmisher, retail $5): A travel guide with all the bizarre and esoteric history you'll never find in Fodor's.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $19.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with four more titles (retail value $62):
  • World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour (Cubicle 7, retail $20) and Europe Ablaze (retail $18): In World War II Britain, covert missions against the Nazis are just your cover for really secret missions against Mythos entities.
  • Tales of the Crescent City (Golden Goblin Press, retail $18): A huge collection of scenarios and articles about the Mythos in Jazz Age New Orleans.
  • Age of Cthulhu: A Dream of Japan (Goodman Games, retail $6): Tracking a creepy extradimensional entity in Japan's Forest of Suicides.

There's going to be at least one extra for the Bonus Collection, to be announced later - everyone who buys the bonus collection will get it, and as usual the earlier you buy it the cheaper it is.

This one interests me a lot, but as usual I have to stress that one of the reasons I see this stuff is that I get freebies. I think it looks like good value, but I'm not the one who has to spend the money.
