Two more Bundle offers - Traveller RPG

Yet more offers from the Bundle of Holding people.

The first is a re-run of their last Traveller RPG offer from July, the second is the rest of the classic Traveller system that wasn't in the previous offer, a LOT of stuff including a couple of books so obscure or badly distributed that I've never owned them.

The first one:

Traveller is the classic SF RPG, the second RPG I ever played or wrote for, and still holds up pretty well. This one is big - a huge collection of the original rulebooks etc from 1981 onwards, in PDF form:

STARTER COLLECTION ($5.95 - retail value $31):
  • Traveller B01-03 (1981 editions) ($12)
    + SS4 The Lost Rules ($2)
    + Spinward Marches and Imperium maps
  • S08 and S11 Library Data A-M and N-Z ($8)
  • S01 1001 Characters ($3)
  • S02 Animal Encounters ($3)
  • S12 Forms & Charts ($3)
  • Orientation Pack [free]
BONUS COLLECTION (threshold starts at $12.95 - retail value $26+)
    B04 Mercenary ($4)
  • B05 High Guard (1980) ($4)
  • B06 Scouts ($4)
  • B07 Merchant Prince ($4)
  • B08 Robots ($4)
  • S05 Lightning Class Cruisers (not readily available)
  • S09 Fighting Ships ($3)
  • S13 Veterans ($3)
  • A05 Trillion Credit Squadron ($4)
  • A06 Expedition to Zhodane ($4)
  • A09 Nomads of the World-Ocean ($4)
The last three of these were the surprise items added after launch when this offer was originally... er... offered, so there won't be any surprise items this time.

The way that this works is that the sooner you buy this, the cheaper the bonus collection. 10% of the profit will be going to Heifer International, a charity which helps 3rd world farmers get cows etc., see their web site for details.

The second offer is the rest of the original Black Book supplements:

"This new LBB-2 collection is one of two simultaneous offers of classic Traveller ebooks from the 1970s and '80s. These books presented the leading SFRPG in its pure original form: the "Little Black Books," half-size manuals with elegant black cover designs. Published by GDW in 1977 (revised 1981), the first three densely packed LBBs launched hundreds of thousands of spacefaring campaigns across the star-spanning Imperium. Five rules expansions and a trove of supplements and adventures all sported the familar black design.

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 LBB-2 offer is US$105. Customers who pay just $7.95 get all 17 titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $54) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • TWO supplements (total retail price $6):
    S03 The Spinward Marches and
    S04 Citizens of the Imperium
  • SEVEN adventures (total retail $28):
    A00 The Imperial Fringe,
    A01 Kinunir,
    A02 Research Station Gamma,
    A03 Twilight's Peak,
    A04 Leviathan,
    A07 Broadsword,
    A08 Prison Planet
  • EIGHT Double Adventures (total retail $20): D01a Annic Nova,
    D01b Shadows,
    D02a Across the Bright Face,
    D02b Mission on Mithril,
    D03a The Argon Gambit,
    D03b Death Station,
    D04a Marooned,
    D04b Marooned Alone
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $16.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with 18 more titles (retail value $51):
  • THREE more supplements (total retail $9):
    S06 76 Patrons,
    S07 Traders and Gunboats,
    S10 The Solomani Rim
  • FOUR more adventures (total retail $16):
    A10 Safari Ship,
    A11 Murder on Arcturus Station,
    A12 Secret of the Ancients,
    A13 Signal GK
  • SEVEN more Double Adventures (total retail $18):
    D05a The Chamax Plague,
    D05b Horde,
    D06a Divine Intervention,
    D06b Night of Conquest,
    D07a A Plague of Perruques,
    D07b Stranded on Arden,
    D08 Memory Alpha
  • FOUR Special Supplements (total retail $8):
    SS01 Merchant Prince,
    SS02 Exotic Atmospheres,
    SS03 Missiles
    (plus SS03a Missiles Revised),
    SS04 The Lost Rules
This works in exactly the same way, the price for the bonus items will go up so the earlier you buy it the cheaper it is.

Usual caveat - I'm getting this stuff free (or rather, I'm getting the couple that I haven't already got free), which is an obvious cause of bias. But if one of these offers came along and I thought it wasn't good I'd say so!
