Another RPG bundle offer - Legacy: Life Among the Ruins

This is an RPG based on the idea of rebuilding civilization after some sort of collapse.

"Legacy: Life Among the Ruins is a Powered by the Apocalypse SFRPG by Jay Iles and Douglas Santana Mota, published by UFO Press and distributed by Modiphius Entertainment. Legacy is about building a new world in the ruins of the future. You control both a family and its individual members across generations. As your story skips forward decades or centuries, your actions change the world, and your family adapts to survive.

We presented the 2015 First Edition of Legacy in our first Apocalypse Engine Bundle (September 2015). Legacy's 2018 Second Edition, funded in a July 2017 Kickstarter campaign, puts the world map at center stage, adds new character roles and simplified playbooks, and updates the basic Moves. The Kickstarter also funded many inventive "Worlds of Legacy" system hacks, where you rebuild, or retool, civilizations in alternate settings: a starship, a magical land facing the end of time, a distant world just after planetfall, an evil Gothic castle, and more. This offer presents the complete Legacy 2E rulebook, lots of Worlds, an art book, and even a soundtrack, all for a bargain price.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format), and each sound file in both .MP3 and FLAC formats. 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 and music players.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to the charity designated by Legacy designer Jay Iles, Mermaids UK.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$93. Customers who pay just US$9.95 get all three titles in our Core Collection (retail value $38) as DRM-free ebooks and sound files, including the complete Legacy: Life Among the Ruins Second Edition rulebook (retail price $18), The Art of Legacy: Life Among the Ruins (retail $13), and the Sounds of the Wasteland soundtrack (retail $7) of atmospheric ambient sounds.

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $19.95 to start, also get our entire Worlds Collection with six more titles worth an additional $55, including Worlds of Legacy 1: Generation Ship (retail $10), 2: Primal Pathways (retail $10) 3: Godsend (retail price $10), 4: Rhapsody of Blood (retail $10) plus its companion collection of new playbooks, Choir of Souls (retail $5); and 5: Worldfall (retail $10)

I wasn't particularly interested when I first looked at this because there are a lot of post-apocalypse survivalist RPGs out there, but this one seems to be different, with more of an emphasis on reconstruction (or construction) and long-term goals, with plots spanning decades and generations rather than a series of firefights. Some of the books remind me of god-game computer and board games, with rivals trying to create or destroy civilizations, others are more conventional roleplaying. There's some very nice art, and even a collection of soundtracks! Given the price I'm definitely recommending this one, it looks like it can be a lot of fun if you like the idea of a long-term campaign.
