Subject:Two more RPG bundle offers - Warhammer 40K Deathwatch RPG
Time:08:41 pm
Two RPG bundles derived from Warhammer 40K, Games Workshop's tabletop wargame.

Deathwatch Essentials

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/DWEssentials

This is the first of two all-new offers now in progress featuring Deathwatch, the RPG of elite Space Marines in the Warhammer 40,000 setting. This Essentials offer presents the core rulebook and key supplements; if you're new to the game, start here. The companion offer, Deathwatch Missions, has the rest of the sourcebooks and supplements in the line. (The Deathwatch Missions secret promo page.)

Deathwatch was originally published in 2010 by Fantasy Flight Games. In August 2017 Ulisses Spiele acquired the Warhammer 40K license and, with it, the backlist of WH40K RPGs: Rogue Trader, Dark Heresy, Black Crusade, Only War, and Deathwatch. Now the English-language versions of these games are published by Ulisses North America.

In the 41st Millennium, the Emperor sits immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the master of Mankind by the will of the gods, and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the Imperium for whom a thousand souls are sacrificed every day, so that he may never truly die. Vast armies give battle in his name on uncounted worlds. Greatest of his soldiers are the Adeptus Astartes -- the bio-engineered super-soldiers better known as Space Marines.

You are a Space Marine in the Deathwatch, an elite warrior brotherhood that safeguards humanity against vile xenos (aliens), heretics, mutants, and worse. In loyal service to the Emperor, you undertake special missions against deadly adversaries in the Jericho Reach, a region of the Imperium devastated by war and on the brink of annihilation. You will face challenges from the ravening horror of a Tyranid Hive Tyrant to the excruciating decision whether an Imperial world's population can be saved or must be abandoned to an encroaching alien menace.

Like the knights of Camelot, Deathwatch Space Marines are veteran warriors, each a hero with a story. Great accomplishments and strong personalities distinguish them from the Battle-Brothers of their home Chapters. Relative to the player characters in other WH40K RPGs, Deathwatch PCs top the scale, alongside the Chaos cultists of Black Crusade. (If you saw our two Dark Heresy First Edition offers in December 2017, a starting Deathwatch Marine can match the most powerful Dark Heresy 1E Acolyte.) This presents roleplaying opportunities unique in WH40K. The Space Marines on a Kill-team are strong-willed, successful individuals, but the team must work together or face annihilation. The characters' obligation to subdue their individual natures, to sacrifice their pride and put aside differences, creates drama and excitement.

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 payment (after gateway fees) is split evenly between the two charities chosen by Deathwatch publisher Ulisses Spiele, Doctors Without Borders and the German children's hospice Bärenherz.

The total retail value of the titles in this Essentials offer is US$145. Customers who pay just $16.95 get all three titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $70) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete full-color 400-page Deathwatch core rulebook (and the free Final Sanction Quickstart rules) plus two supplements that help define your Space Marine character's background: First Founding and Honour the Chapter.

Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $29.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with four key supplements worth an additional $75, including the indispensable rules expansion Rites of Battle, The Emperor's Chosen (with rules for veteran Space Marines), the Mark of the Xenos bestiary, and the Deathwatch Game Master's Kit with useful reference charts.

Deathwatch Missions

This is the second of two all-new offers running in parallel that present Deathwatch, the Ulisses North America RPG of elite Space Marines in the Warhammer 40,000 setting. The first offer, Deathwatch Essentials, has the core rulebook and key supplements; if you're new to the game, start there first! (The Deathwatch Essentials secret promo page.) This companion Missions offer has the rest of the line, including sourcebooks and lots of scenarios.

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 payment (after gateway fees) is split evenly between the two charities chosen by Deathwatch publisher Ulisses Spiele, Doctors Without Borders and the German children's hospice Bärenherz.

The total retail value of the titles in this Missions offer is US$130. Customers who pay just $14.95 get all four titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $65) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including Ark of Lost Souls, a full-scale adventure aboard an accursed Space Hulk; The Achilus Assault, with adversaries and perils from across the Jericho Reach; Rising Tempest, an epic three-part campaign across the Canis Salient; and the one-shot convention scenario Falling Star.

Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $27.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with three more titles worth an additional $65, including The Jericho Reach, with in-depth information for Kill-teams throughout the Reach; The Outer Reach, in which the Dead Cabal uncovers the Necrons of the Suhbekhar Dynasty; and a collection of three adventures, The Emperor Protects.

Deathwatch resources


The problem I have with this stuff is pretty simple - I hate Warhammer 40K. I dislike the game setting, the racist ethos (which I'd summarise as "kill everything that's different to purify the universe"), and the effect that it has had on the gaming hobby as a whole. There may be good points I've missed, but W40K is basically the reason I stopped writing for White Dwarf, and I bear grudges. But as usual you do get a lot for your money, and if you actually like spiky space-marines who can't raise their arms above their shoulders this may be just the system you're looking for.
