Another RPG bundle offer - Savage Battlefield

This is another emergency listing, to raise money following burglary and arson of the publisher's home:

"This Savage Battlefield Bundle presents campaign settings published by Battlefield Press for Pinnacle Entertainment's fast-furious-fun Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition RPG. (And one for the new SW Adventure Edition, too.) This all-new offer, which helps Battlefield owner Jonathan Thompson and his family after an arsonist burned their home, presents Victorian and World War I fantasy, Cthulhoid space opera, Robin Hood adventure, and more for a bargain price.

On August 6, as Battlefield Press owner Jonathan Thompson and his family were returning home from Gen Con, a burglar robbed their home in Shreveport, Louisiana and then, to hide the burglary, set the house on fire. "We lucked out that we had a vigilant neighbor," says Jonathan. "The fire department was close by and arrived within a few minutes of the 911 call. Though there were no people in the house, the fire did take the life of my two-month-old kitten. The fire destroyed collectibles, about a third of my gaming collection, general reference books, and my work computers. The fire damage was limited to two rooms, but the rest of the house has smoke and water damage from the fire department. We have insurance, but there is a $2,500 deductible, and we will be displaced to a Residence Inn for at least the next 4-5 months. This collection will help us live while we are waiting to get back into our house."

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.

Ordinarily 10% of each Bundle of Holding purchase goes to a designated charity. For this Savage Battlefield offer I'm adding the charity revenue to the publisher share to help Jonathan Thompson in a tough time.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$104. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $48.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Eldritch Skies (Savage Worlds Edition) (retail price $15) (plus the Kindle version and the Eldritch Skies GM Screen Inserts, retail $5); Sherwood: The Legend of Robin Hood 2E (retail $10); and the World War I fantasy setting Kaiser's Gate (retail $10), plus the supplements Mounts, retail $10, and Adventures & Archetypes, retail $3.50.

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $17.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $55.50, including the Eldritch Skies supplement Distant Vistas (retail $10.50); Agents of G.A.I.A. (retail $12); The Dinosaur Protocol (retail $10); Gaslight Victorian Fantasy 3E (retail $13), plus the Gaslight Map Pack and Calendar Pack 1888; and the 1920s one-shot adventure set in the Kaiser's Gate background, Wizards and Wiseguys: Public Enemies (retail $5).

This isn't a system I particularly love, but there are some interesting settings, such as Kaiser's gate, a WW1 fantasy campaign, and a follow-on 1920s gangster adventure. I've only checked out the Wizards and Wiseguys adventure so far, and it has some nice art and seems to be reasonably well-designed, although a bit linear. Given the circumstances I'm definitely recommending the bundle.
