This is one that interests me for fairly obvious reasons - one of the driving forces behind Forgotten Futures was my experiences writing for the original Space 1889 RPG. The Ubiquity version uses a different and hopefully better rules set, and has some new material didn't accompany the original game:
"Originally published by GDW in 1988, Space: 1889 is a proto-steampunk science fantasy RPG that sends your ether flyer to the swamps of Venus and the ancient canals of Mars for civilized adventures out of Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, and H. Rider Haggard. GDW and its licensees produced a dozen Space: 1889 RPG supplements (all still available as scanned .PDFs from Heliograph, Inc.), miniatures and computer games, audio dramas (two of them still available from Who North America), and, later, three series of ebook novels from Untreed Reads.
This offer features the new Clockwork Publishing edition of Space: 1889, licensed by designer Frank Chadwick and funded by a successful July 2013 Kickstarter campaign. The Clockwork edition uses the easy and fast-playing Ubiquity rules system created for Hollow Earth Expedition (featured in our December 2015 Ubiquity Bundle).
We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format) and each audio track as an .MP3 file. 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, tablets, and music players.
Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, UNHCR, the United Nations Refugee Agency.
The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$80. Customers who pay just US$6.95 get both titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $35), including Clockwork Publishing's complete 260-page Space: 1889 rulebook (retail price $25) and composer Ralf Kurtsiefer's complete soundtrack Music of the Ether (retail $10), with 18 DRM-free .MP3 audio tracks of atmospheric music for Space: 1889 game sessions.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $16.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with four more titles (retail value $45):
At least one more title will be added at some point after the launch. 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 more than average. This is their reward for buying early.
