7th Sea Bundle
"This all-new offer presents the 2016 Second Edition of Legend of the Five Rings designer John Wick's swashbuckling fantasy RPG 7th Sea. John's February 2016 7th Sea 2E Kickstarter campaign broke all roleplaying records. Now, for a bargain price, you can get the 2016 7th Sea rulebook and the key supplements you need for daring adventures on land and sea in Theah, a setting of magic and mystery inspired by Europe in the Baroque Era -- and the Golden Age of Piracy.
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 of this offer (after gateway fees) goes to Ocean Conservancy.
The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$105. Customers who pay just US$14.95 get all six titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $45) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete full-color 7th Sea 2E core rulebook (retail price $25), the character supplement Heroes & Villains (retail $20), and four 7th Sea Art Packs.
Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $24.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with three more supplements worth an additional $60, including Nations of Theah Volumes 1 and 2 (retail $20 apiece) and Pirate Nations (retail $20).
John Wick Presents Bundle
"Award-winning RPG designer John Wick created 7th Sea and Legend of the Five Rings. This bargain-priced collection brings you many diverse, startlingly original indie games -- Wicked Fantasy, Houses of the Blooded, Wield and many more -- that John published through his imprint John Wick Presents.
Ten percent of each purchase of this offer (after gateway fees) goes to the charity chosen by John Wick, the American Red Cross. The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$82. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all five titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $42) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
- Wicked Fantasy (retail price $10): Brilliant reimaginings of ten traditional fantasy races, from elves and dwarves to kobolds and ratmen.
- Houses of the Blooded (retail $10): Intrigue, passion, and forbidden delights in a decadent culture obsessed with Romance and Revenge. Includes Josh Roby's expansion Coronets But Never Crowns (retail $6), which adds what you might call "family values."
- Wield (retail $6): You play an ancient, powerful weapon, and the heroes you wield are disposable hit points.
- Play Dirty 15th Anniversary Edition (retail $10): The controversial columns of dishonest and dastardly gamemaster advice from Pyramid magazine.
- The Big Book of Little Games (retail $13): A dozen small gems about everything from spies to soap operas. Includes Cat, where you protect your human owner from menaces only you can see.
- Wicked Fantasy Companion (retail $8): A massive expansion of the Wicked Fantasy races with conversion advice for Savage Worlds and Dungeon World.
- Blood & Honor (retail $8): A new way to play Houses of the Blooded -- as samurai in Old Japan.
- The Wield Companion (retail $5): New settings and domains for your super-weapons to exploit.
- The Shotgun Diaries (retail $3): John Wick's zombie survival horror RPG -- fast, easy to use, and horrifying.
- The Aegis Project (retail $8): An epic science fiction game played across three eras that span five centuries.
These are some very good games. I'll be honest, I'm more interested in the second offer than the first, because there's some quirky stuff in there that appeals to my evil nature. Play Dirty, for example, was a VERY good column for anyone who runs games, with a wealth of ways to make life... shall we say "interesting"... for your players. I'm not sure I'd want all of these if I was paying for them, but if you want some of the best games design around it's a pretty cheap way of getting it. But as usual I have to emphasise that your mileage and pockets may vary...
