These are two bundles of games by one of the better designers, John Wick; one is Seventh Sea, probably the best fantasy pirate RPG, the other is an assortment of games he's designed:
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:
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...
