More stuff in the "old school revival" genre, which tries to bring back the good old days of D&D and other early RPGs. Some of this stuff looks more interesting to me than the original offer, but as usual your mileage may vary.
"This is our third 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 all-new +3 collection, which runs in parallel with our newly resurrected original OSR bundle, features games and modules that adapt the old-school approach to new genres."
Ebooks are DRM free .PDF, 10% of the proceeds after expenses will go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$77. Customers who pay $5.95 get all five titles in the Starter Collection (retail value $35):
Usual disclaimer - I'm seeing this stuff because I get downloads free if I want them. I think it's a reasonably good deal, but I don't have to pay for it so as previously mentioned YMMV.
