Another RPG bundle offer - Warhammer Fantasy 1st Edition RPG

This is an offer of the first edition (1986) version of the Warhammer Fantasy RPG with various supplements etc:

"This all-new offer presents the 1986 First Edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, the atmospheric FRPG originally published by Games Workshop and now available from Cubicle 7 Entertainment. WFRP 1E is set in the Old World, a striking pseudo-European, Renaissance-level low-fantasy setting of corruption and superstition, betrayal and butchery, and insidious, encroaching Chaos. This bargain-priced collection gives you everything you need to start adventuring in this grim world of perilous adventure.

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 designated by Dominic McDowall of Cubicle 7 Entertainment, Doctors Without Borders.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$80. Customers who pay just US$11.95 get all three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $30) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete 385-page Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay First Edition core rulebook plus the two city supplements Marienburg: Sold Down the River and Middenheim: City of Chaos.

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $22.95 to start, also get our entire Campaign Collection with all five scenario ebooks (worth an additional $50) in the legendary Enemy Within sequence, one of the greatest campaigns in roleplaying history: Shadows Over Bögenhafen, Death on the Reik, Power Behind the Throne, Something Rotten in Kislev, and Empire in Flames.

I'll be honest - this doesn't really interest me much. It was a fairly clunky system in 1986, I really doubt that it stands up well after 32 years. It's also a setting that I don't much like. Having said that, the Enemy Within campaign has a LOT of admirers, although I suspect that many may have adapted it to other systems. I think it's also possible that anyone interested in the setting already owns most of this stuff in dead tree format, which basically limits the market to players who are interested but never bought it. I suspect that anyone wanting to get into it may be better off going for the newest version of the rules and buying this bundle for the adventures, which don't appear to be available in newer editions.
