These are two bundles for a wild west "steampunk cowboys V Cthulhu" RPG Into the Breach. The first is repeated from December 2016, the other is all new:
Through the Breachhttps://bundleofholding.com/presents/Breach2018
"Originally presented in December 2016, this revived offer is one of two now in progress featuring Through the Breach, the Wyrd Miniatures Lovecraftian-Wild West-steampunk RPG based on the Malifaux miniatures game. In the magic-saturated parallel world of Malifaux, you take on the roles of unique Fated citizens, such as Gunfighters, Drudges, Dabblers, and Entertainers. Your destiny, or Fate, is created during character creation, and it affects every aspect of your life. As the game progresses, the destinies of the Fated entwine, driving you all inexorably toward a final reckoning. Will you fall to Fate, or cheat it?
This revived offer has an all-new companion, Second Breach, with recent supplements and short "Penny Dreadful" 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 purchase (after gateway fees) goes to these two Through the Breach offers' designated charity, Reading is Fundamental.
The total retail value of the titles in this revived offer is US$141. Customers who pay just US$14.95 get all five titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $60) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including (new to this revival) the complete 412-page Through the Breach Second Edition core rulebook (2017) and four short "Penny Dreadful" adventures, ideal for introducing the Gothic, necromantic-industrial city-state of Malifaux. (Customers who purchased this offer during its original run get the new Through the Breach 2E core rulebook automatically on their Wizard's Cabinet download page. When you buy a Bundle of Holding early, you never worry about missing a title added later -- even much later.)
Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $26.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles worth an additional $81, including the rules supplements Into the Steam and Under Quarantine and two full-length adventures that build on them: Northern Aggression and A Night in Rottenburg, plus several more Penny Dreadfuls.
Second BreachThrough the Breach RPG from Wyrd Miniatures, accompanies the original December 2016 Through the Breach Bundle, newly resurrected and now in progress. This companion Second Breach offer adds recent supplements and scenarios for this gorgeous Lovecraftian-Wild West-steampunk RPG based on the Malifaux miniatures game.
The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$133. Customers who pay just US$14.95 get all seven titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $63) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the rules supplement Into the Bayou, the introductory campaign In Defense of Innocence, and five short "Penny Dreadful" scenarios: Bad Moon Rising, Child of Flame, Dirty Deeds, Ghost House, and Madman, Interrupted.
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 ten more titles worth an additional $70, including the campaign-length scenarios The Bayou Games and Nythera, Adventure Box Collection I, and no less than seven more Penny Dreadfuls: Earthly Desires, The Hand That Feeds, Heart of Darkness, Night of the Carver, No Strings Attached, Sixteen Tons, and Til Death Do Us Part.
Back in December 2016 I said "You get quite a lot of material for the money, but to me it feels like it's falling between too many stools, I don't think I'll be very interested. But of course your mileage may vary." To be honest, nothing I'm seeing here really changes that opinion. It's The Wild Wild West with monsters and magic, and simply isn't something I want to run. If you do, this may be just what you're looking for.
