Yet another RPG bundle offer - Brave New World

This is a dystopic superhero setting (think a more cynical version of Age of Ultron or Civil War) that I recall as being pretty good - I have a couple of the books in dead tree format, it'll be nice to get the rest.

"This is a comprehensive collection featuring Brave New World, Matt Forbeck's 1999 tabletop roleplaying game from Alderac Entertainment. After the American dream died in 1963 when terrorists assassinated Jacqueline Kennedy, and the Bicentennial Battle destroyed Chicago in 1976, the USA of Brave New World is a battleground where superheroes, or "deltas," fight a fascist government.

This Brave New World Bundle presents the entire BNW game line. Wage your own superpowered Civil War in the style of comics like Kingdom Come, Marshal Law, and American Flagg!

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, Human Rights Watch.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$120. Customers who pay just $11.95 get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $57) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Brave New World corebook (retail price $18): Matt Forbeck's complete 209-page rulebook that introduces this intriguing superhero setting.
  • Ravaged Planet (retail $15): The player's guide to the world of this alternate-history 1999.
  • Delta Prime and Defiants (retail $12 each): The sourcebooks for government deltas and the rebels who fight them.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $19.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles (retail value $63):
  • Bargainers and Covenant (retail $12 each): Character sourcebooks for two opposing forces: the deltas who broker deals with demonic forces, and the super-agents of the Catholic Church.
  • Crescent City (retail $12): From the ruins of Chicago rose this amazing high-tech city, home to more deltas than anywhere else.
  • Evil Unlimited (retail $12): If you want to use your super-powers to make a fortune, go to these guys.
  • Glory Days (retail $15): The World War II era sourcebook for Brave New World -- a time before it all went bad.
There will be at least one more surprise item added after this launches; as usual everyone gets it.

This is a fun game, especially if you like deconstructing superheroes, and I think it's pretty good value. But as usual I have to point out that I'm going to be getting the stuff I want free, which must skew my opinions; if you have to buy it your mileage may vary.
