Another RPG bundle offer - Call of Cthulhu

CoC is the definitive horror / Lovecraft RPG, and it's on offer for Halloween

Bundle of Tentacles +4

"This is the fourth annual installment in the Bundle of Holding's popular annual series of all-new collections of supplements and scenarios for Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu RPG inspired by H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format) or ePub. 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, the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$107. Customers who pay just US$12.95 get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $51) as DRM-free ebooks in .PDF or ePub format:
  • Our Ladies of Sorrow (Miskatonic River Press retail price $25): Three ghostly scenarios by Kevin Ross (Kingsport).
  • Starfall Over the Plateau of Leng (Goodman Games, retail $11): An Age of Cthulhu investigation that leads to the frozen north of the Dreamlands.
  • Goblin on Bourbon Street (Golden Goblin Press, retail $5): A convention scenario by Oscar Rios set in a secret New Orleans bookshop with an unusual statuette.
  • Cthulhu Mythos Encyclopedia (Arc Dream Publishing, retail $10): A comprehensive 400-page compendium by Daniel Harms of many, many Mythos references. Presented in ePub and .mobi formats.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $24.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with four more titles (retail value $56):
  • New Tales of the Miskatonic Valley and Tales of the Sleepless City (Miskatonic River Press, retail $22 each): Two mammoth scenario collections (edited by the late Keith Herber, longtime CoC developer) set in Lovecraft Country and New York City.
  • A Peculiar Pentad (Rogue Genius Games, retail $6): Five shops that provide your investigators what they need -- for a price.
  • Mutable Deceptions 1: Jazz Age Newspapers (Cthulhu Reborn, retail $6): Outstanding .PDF templates for Adobe Reader that let you create your own Jazz Age newspaper clippings as clues for Call of Cthulhu or any 1920s game.
At least one other item will be added after the launch, but I can't say what or when it will be added: "When a title is added after launch, ALL customers who previously purchased the bundle automatically receive the newly added title, REGARDLESS of whether or not they paid higher than average. This is their reward for buying early."

This seems to be a pretty good way to get caught up on Call of Cthulhu if (like me) you haven't been buying everything as it's published. I may not bother because I OD'd on horror games last century (feels very weird saying that) and don't particularly feel like more. It looks to be good value for money but as usual I have to mention I get this stuff free if I want it, your mileage could vary.
