Another RPG bundle offer - Penumbra from Atlas Games

This is material for a fantasy system / setting I don't know much about, but it comes from Atlas Games, who have produced some very good material over the years. It's based on the D20 / OGL rules and should be compatible with other systems etc. that use them. It's also supporting Doctors Without Borders, a charity I like to help.

"A follow-up to the May 2015 Penumbra Bundle, this is another big collection of D20-era fantasy RPG supplements from Atlas Games suitable for any fantasy campaign using OGL-based systems such as Pathfinder and D&D 3.x. The Penumbra line presented many of the earliest and best books from the D20 boom, written by star designers like Keith Baker (Eberron, Gloom), Mike Mearls (D&D 5 lead designer), and Gareth Hanrahan (Mongoose Traveller), among many others. All Penumbra material is ready to drop into your campaign at a moment's notice.

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, Doctors Without Borders.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$93. Customers who pay just US$5.95 get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $40) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
  • Sacred Ground (retail price $10): Four holy sites found on land and sea, in the sky, and underground.
  • Touched by the Gods (retail $12): A sourcebook of religious and secular orders and the deities behind them.
  • En Route II: By Land or By Sea (retail $10) and En Route III: The Road Less Traveled (retail $8): Two sequels to En Route (included in our original Penumbra offer) with more ready-to-go short encounters and side treks.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $14.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with four more titles (retail value $53):
  • Occult Lore (retail $18): Rules for ten new magical traditions -- alchemy, geomancy, spirit cultivation, rational magic, and many more.
  • Seven Civilizations (retail $10): Compelling new cultures designed to blend seamlessly into your campaign world.
  • Seven Serpents (retail $10): Strange, peculiar, and exceptional dragons to challenge, mystify, or support your characters.
  • Love and War (retail $15): Knighthood and chivalry as practiced in history and fantasy. Written by David Chart (Ars Magica Fifth Edition).
At least one more title will be added after launch; "When a title is added after launch, ALL customers who previously purchased the bundle automatically receive the newly added titles, REGARDLESS of whether or not they paid higher than average. This is their reward for buying early."

I'll be honest, I'm pretty much burned out on fantasy systems and probably won't bother with this, but it looks like good value. As usual I have to stress that I would be getting it free if I wanted it, which may affect my judgement of value - your mileage may vary.
