"This new offer presents the Third Edition of the supernatural flintlock-horror tabletop roleplaying game Colonial Gothic from Rogue Games. Uncover the secret history of America's 18th-Century frontier, where monsters stalk the woods and ghosts haunt every sleepy hollow. This bargain-priced offer includes almost the entire Colonial Gothic line -- everything you need for a complete campaign of magic and mayhem in the shadows of early America.
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.
The entire Rogue Games share of this offer's proceeds goes to the charity selected by Rogue Games owner Richard Iorio II, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. "Over the weekend of June 12-14, 2015, I lost three friends in succession to suicide," Richard writes. "The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention helps you understand why this event happened and, more important, they offer comfort. They cannot take away the pain, but they can help you deal with it."
The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$94. Customers who pay just US$8.95 get all six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $39) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Colonial Gothic Third Edition rulebook (retail price $10), three essential supplements (Gamemaster, Adventure, and The Player Companion, total retail $21), and the 174-page Beginnings adventure (retail $8) that kicks off the massive Flames of Freedom campaign that will encompass the entire American Revolution.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $17.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with eight more titles worth an additional $55:
- Three sourcebooks: The Grimoire (retail $6), Gazetteer (retail $7), and Bestiary (retail $7).
- Three setting books: Settings (retail $8), New France (retail $7 -- previously presented in our August 2013 Bundle of the Ages), and The French & Indian War (retail $8).
- Lovecraft (retail $7): Bring the Cthulhu Mythos onto the American frontier.
- The Templars (retail $5 -- also from our August 2013 Ages offer): Colonial Gothic's secret history of history's most secretive bunch.
This isn't one I feel particularly attracted to, but it looks like you get a lot of stuff for your money including an entire revolutionary war campaign and lots of monsters. I think it's reasonable value, and it's supporting a worthwhile cause, but as usual your mileage may vary.
