This is another I won't be downloading, Palladium's fantasy RPG from 1984, very much an old-school product of its time, with rules for everything and a generic setting I found instantly forgettable. There may be more to it than I remember, I only looked at the game book and one or two of the supplements, but life's really too short... Having said that, it may be of interest if you happen to like the system or want to revive an old campaign, and don't want to go looking for the dead trees:
The Palladium Role-Playing Game, Kevin Siembieda's vintage FRPG from Palladium Books. This bargain-priced collection presents a wide range of rulebooks and supplements using the Palladium rules system that also powers the Rifts® RPG. Several of these books include early work by the late Erick Wujcik, later well known for his After the Bomb and Amber Diceless Roleplaying games.
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 the charity selected by Palladium Books, the American Red Cross.
The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$97. Customers who pay just US$14.95 get all six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $49.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including The Palladium Role-Playing Game core rulebook Revised Edition (retail price $12.50), Game Master Kit (retail $5), and Game Shield (retail $4.50), plus Book VI: Island at the Edge of the World (retail $10.50), the early adventure The Arms of Nargash-Tor (retail $5), and two sets of Paper Miniatures (retail $6 each, total $12) with standup figures for every Occupational Character Class.
Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $23.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $48.50 that vastly expand the range of characters, the world, and the scope for adventure: Book II: Old Ones (retail $12.50), Book III: Adventures on the High Seas (retail $12.50), Book IV: Adventures in the Northern Wilderness (retail $8), Book V: 'Further' Adventures in the Northern Wilderness (retail $5), and Book VII: Yin-Sloth Jungles (retail $10.50).
At least one more title will be added later. 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.
I'm really not very interested, but as usual YMMV.
