Another RPG bundle offer - Adventures in Middle-Earth

This is Cubicle 7's licensed RPG based on The Lord of the Rings etc., revamped and with more material than previous offers:

Adventures in Middle-earth

"This offer presents Adventures in Middle-earth™ from Cubicle 7 Entertainment. This official Open Game License RPG adapts the world's most popular fantasy setting, seen in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, for the Fifth Edition of the world's most popular fantasy RPG. Based on Cubicle 7's The One Ring Roleplaying Game, Adventures in Middle-earth displays an unparalleled handling of its source material, along with gorgeous art and deep knowledge of Tolkien's work.

This bargain-priced collection presents DRM-free .PDFs of most of the Adventures in Middle-earth line -- everything you need to conjure Middle-earth in your Fifth Edition games. (If you saw our previous offers of The One Ring RPG, note that much of this Adventures material is attentively converted from previously published TOR products.) The offer also includes a 20% discount on purchases of Adventures in Middle-earth print products at the Cubicle 7 webstore.

We provide each title complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these files 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, Doctors Without Borders.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$103. Customers who pay just US$16.95 get all three titles in our Player Collection (retail value $55) as DRM-free .PDFs: the full-color 224-page Adventures in Middle-earth Player's Guide, the Rhovanion Region Guide (adapted from the TOR supplement Heart of the Wild), and The Road Goes Ever On (adapting TOR's Journeys and Maps).

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $26.95 to start, also get our entire Loremaster Collection with three more titles worth an additional $48, including the 160-page Loremaster's Guide, the scenario collection Wilderland Adventures (converted from TOR's Adventures in Wilderland), and the introductory adventure The Eaves of Mirkwood, along with its accompanying Loremaster's Screen.

This looks to be a pretty good offer, and it's all very pretty. It's an Open Games License release which means that it's basically modified Dungeons and Dragons rules, not exactly my favourite but it's a system that a LOT of people know well, which makes the learning curve relatively easy, and as usual you're getting a lot for your money. Real Middle-Earth fans may already own a lot of it as dead trees, but that's true of all of these offers. Recommended, but as usual I have to stress that I don't pay for this stuff if I want it, if you do your opinion may differ.
