Trail of Cthulhu is one of the better-regarded RPGs based on Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. It's based on Robin Laws' Gumshoe system, and like Call of Cthulhu emphasises investigation over combat. One of these offers is the basic game and essential supplements, repeating an earlier bundle from 2014, the other is all new.
Trail of Cthulhu
"Originally presented in April 2014 and revived once already in June 2015, this was one of the Bundle site's most successful offers. Trail of Cthulhu is the bestselling game by star designer Kenneth Hite that adapts the Pelgrane Press GUMSHOE System of investigative RPG scenarios (also seen in The Esoterrorists, Ashen Stars, Mutant City Blues, Night's Black Agents, and others) to Lovecraftian Mythos-hunting.
We're reviving this offer for a second time in conjunction with a new Trail of Cthulhu Bundle +2. Both offers run in parallel and end together Monday, November 7.
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, Haiti Outreach.
The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$111. Customers who pay just US$9.95 get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $43) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

These are pretty good offers in my opinion, and if I wasn't pretty much monstered out (too much Call of Cthulhu etc. in the eighties and nineties) I'd be very interested; as it is I will probably be getting some of it just to look at how it's put together. I think it's well worth what it costs, but as usual I have to point out I get freebies if I want them - you may be less enthusiastic if you have to pay.
