Two more RPG bundle offers - Trail of Cthulhu

More horror RPG offerings, this time for Trail of Cthulhu, a Cthulhu Mythos RPG based on the Gumshoe system. One's a repeat, the other all new:

Trail of Cthulhu

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/Trail1-2019

This is the first of two offers now in progress featuring Trail of Cthulhu, the bestselling RPG of Cthulhu Mythos investigations using the GUMSHOE system from Pelgrane Press. This revived Trail of Cthulhu Bundle, originally presented in May 2014 (and already revived twice, in June 2015 and October 2016), has the core rulebook and early scenarios. If you're new to the game, start here. An all-new companion offer, Cities of Cthulhu, adds recent scenarios and supplements, including Cthulhu City and Dreamhounds of Paris.

We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format) and each audio file in MP3 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 devices.

Ten percent of each purchase of these two Trail of Cthulhu offers (after gateway fees) goes to their designated charity, Human Rights Watch.

The total retail value of the titles in this revival is US$108. Customers who pay just US$9.95 get all four titles in this revived offer's Starter Collection (retail value $43) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks or MP3 audio tracks, including the complete Trail of Cthulhu rulebook, the Pulp-style adventure collection Stunning Eldritch Tales, the Keeper's Resource Book & Screen, and the atmospheric music soundtrack Four Shadows.

Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $21.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $65:

  • The Armitage Files: Ten mysterious, clue-filled documents by Robin D. Laws, ready-made for improvised sandbox-style adventures based on the players' interpretations.
  • Bookhounds of London: Kenneth Hite's campaign setting of disreputable hustlers who sell rare Mythos texts -- and sometimes defend humanity from their own customers.
  • The Book of the Smoke: Also known as The Occult Guide to London, Paula Dempsey's companion volume to Bookhounds is a primer for the dismal 1930s fog of London.
  • Arkham Detective Tales Extended Edition: Five labyrinthine law-enforcement investigations by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan.
  • Rough Magicks: Ken Hite explains the rules of magick for Investigators and Mythos creatures alike.

Cities of Cthulhu

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/CthulhuCities

This is the second of two offers now in progress featuring Trail of Cthulhu, the bestselling RPG from Pelgrane Press that adapts Cthulhu Mythos investigations to the GUMSHOE system of investigative RPG scenarios (also seen in The Esoterrorists, Ashen Stars, Mutant City Blues, Night's Black Agents, and others). This Cities of Cthulhu Bundle is a new companion to our revived May 2014 Trail of Cthulhu Bundle now in progress. (That revival has the core rulebook and early supplements; if you're new to the game, start there.) This new offer adds recent Trail of Cthulhu supplements and scenarios, including Cthulhu City by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan and the remarkable Dreamhounds of Paris by Robin D. Laws.

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 devices.

Ten percent of each purchase of these two Trail of Cthulhu offers (after gateway fees) goes to these offers' designated charity, Human Rights Watch.

The total retail value of the titles in this new offer is US$113.50. Customers who pay just US$14.95 get all four titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $54) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including Out of the Woods (retail price $17), The Long Con (retail $6), The Many Deaths of Edward Bigsby (retail $6), and Ken Writes About Stuff Volume 1 (retail $25).

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 four more titles worth an additional $59.50, including Cthulhu City (retail $21), Dreamhounds of Paris (retail price $21) and its companion Dreamlands diary The Book of Ants (retail $13), and Ken Hite's Tomb-Hounds of Egypt (retail $4.50).


There really isn't a lot to say about this - it's a good system with a lot of material available for it, and both of the offers give you a lot for your money. If you've taken up one of the previous offers of the system the all-new material of the second offer is probably a must. Recommended!
