Subject:Two more RPG Bundle offers - Malhavoc Press
Time:08:40 pm
I don't really know much about this game - it's a fantasy system by Monte Cook using the Open Game License. One of the offers is a repeat of an offer from a couple of years ago, with the basic material for the setting; the other is all new material.



Ptolus & Malhavoc Bundle

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Ptolus2016

"This Ptolus & Malhavoc offer is one of two collections. running in parallel, that present Numenera designer Monte Cook's fantasy roleplaying rulebooks from Malhavoc Press. This page presents the revived September 2014 Ptolus & Malhavoc offer featuring Monte's lavish 2006 sourcebook Ptolus: City by the Spire. The all-new companion Malhavoc Arcana collection features Monte's Arcana Evolved line and many other Malhavoc supplements.

The size and the breadth of imagination of Ptolus are matched only by the grandeur of its production. Published by Malhavoc Press in 2007 under White Wolf's "Sword & Sorcery" imprint, Ptolus: City by the Spire is the most lavish book in fantasy roleplaying history. The original September 2014 offer was a great success; for this revival, we're also presenting an all-new companion Malhavoc Arcana offer with more D20 supplements from Monte's Malhavoc line.

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 ebooks included at launch is US$102. For just $19.95 the customer gets DRM-free .PDF ebooks of the complete Ptolus: City by the Spire -- the 808-page city sourcebook itself plus the full range of digital extras (The Banewarrens, Chaositech, The Night of Dissolution, two Campaign Journals, and more) -- a retail value of US$60.

Customers who pay more than the threshold price (starting at $24.95) level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection of seven additional Malhavoc Press OGL rulebooks by Monte Cook (retail $52).
  • Books of Experimental Might I (retail $9) and II ($7), Complete Book of Eldritch Might (retail $13), and Books of Hallowed Might I (retail $6) and II ($7): These supplements present some of the house rules from Monte's own campaign -- creative options for any D&D 3.x, Pathfinder, or other OGL fantasy game.
  • Dark Tidings (retail $4): A short dungeon crawl set in Ptolus that shows off the Experimental Might rules.
  • Secrets of the Delver's Guild (retail $6): A collection of the preview columns Monte wrote in the leadup to the Ptolus release.
There are no surprise extras this time because it's a repeat of an earlier offer.


Malhavoc Arcana

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/ArcanaEvolved

"This all-new collection features Monte's Arcana Evolved, his 2005 "variant player's handbook" for Dungeons & Dragons 3.5, along with the rest of the AE line and many other Malhavoc supplements. The companion Ptolus & Malhavoc offer, revived from September 2014, presents Monte's lavish 2006 sourcebook Ptolus: City by the Spire.

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$96. Customers who pay just $7.95 get all five titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $42) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

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 $54):

There will be at least one surprise item added after launch - anyone who pays for the offer will get them, see their site for full detals.


These are BIG offers, in terms of page count if nothing else. They don't actually appeal to me particularly because I pretty much burned out on fantasy campaigns in the eighties, but if you like that sort of thing these offers are a vast quantity of source material. I think they're pretty good value for money, but (a) I'd get them free if I wanted them and (b) I don't, so I may be wearing rose-coloured glasses. As usual YMMV
