Another two RPG bundle offers - TinyD6

Two bundles for the TinyD6 RPG system - one a repeat from last year, the other all-new

Tiny Dungeon

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/2020TinyDungeon

"This revival is one of two offers now in progress that present the stripped-down and streamlined TinyD6 universal rules set from Gallant Knight Games. Funded in a September 2017 Kickstarter campaign, Tiny Dungeon uses the minimalist TinyD6 mechanics for a fast-playing fantasy game that's easy to learn and teach, and ideal for convention games, one-shots, and novice roleplayers. Player characters -- heroic adventurers, daring treasure hunters, imperious magicians, and more -- have statistics that fit on a notecard. Designer Alan Bahr has adapted the TinyD6 rules for standalone games in other genres. (YouTuber Dave Thaumavore has a good Tiny Dungeon rules summary.)

Resurrected from July 2019, this bargain-priced Tiny Dungeon Bundle presents the current editions of Tiny Dungeon, Wastelands, Frontiers, and Mecha (tiny, uhhh, giant robots?), along with a tiny boatload of freebies. The all-new companion offer, TinyD6 Worlds, presents a huge range of tiny standalone RPGs like Tiny Supers, Gunslingers, Pirates, Gods, and more. Each bundle stands alone; if you have one, you don't need the other.

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 payment (after gateway fees) will be donated to these two Tiny offers' pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief sends protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and Canada and to regional response agencies around the world.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$98. Customers who pay a tiny US$9.95 get all five titles in this revived offer's Tiny Dungeon Collection (retail value $37) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Tiny Dungeon 2E core rulebook, plus the free quickstart set Mad Magicks of the Turned God and the Quickstart Characters; the Tiny Dungeon Player's Guide; the print-and-cut Bestiary Deck and Treasure Deck; and the GM Screen.

Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $19.95 to start, also get this revival's giant Tiny Universe Collection with seven more TinyD6 games and supplements worth an additional $61, including the standalone RPG of streamlined post-apocalypse action Tiny Wastelands Revised Edition (plus its Enclave Deck and GM Screen); Tiny Frontiers Revised Edition (plus its Rules Expansion); the Frontiers supplement Mecha and Monsters (plus its Mecha and Monsters Pregen Cards); and, for summer-season lifeguarding action and bay-watching glamour, Beach Patrol (plus its free set of Quickstart Characters)."


TinyD6 Worlds

https://bundleofholding.com/presents/TinyD6Worlds

"This is one of two offers now in progress featuring the stripped-down and streamlined TinyD6 universal rules set from Gallant Knight Games. This TinyD6 Worlds offer, with Tiny Supers, Gunslingers, Pirates, Gods, and more standlone RPGs, is a new companion to our revived July 2019 Tiny Dungeon Bundle now in progress. (YouTuber Dave Thaumavore has a good Tiny Dungeon rules summary.) Each of these bundles stands alone; if you buy this one, you mostly don't need the other (except this offer's Destiny of Tides campaign requires the Tiny Dungeon rules in the other offer).

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 payment (after gateway fees) will be donated to these two Tiny offers' pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief sends protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and Canada and to regional response agencies around the world.

The total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$83. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all three titles in this offer's Starter Collection (retail value $37) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including Tiny Gods, the Tiny Dungeon undersea campaign setting Destiny of Tides (and its Quickstart Characters), and the TinyZine Compendium 2018, a big anthology of tiny articles for all the Gallant Knight TinyD6 games.

Those who pay more than this offer's threshold (average) price, which is set at $17.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles worth an additional $46, including Tiny Supers (along with its Threat Matrix & Character Sheet); Tiny Gunslingers (plus its Poker Deck and Bounties); Tiny Pirates (with the Duel Deck); and Tiny Living Dead."


Last year I said:

My impression, unfortunately, is that for a game that tries to minimalise game mechanics the rules etc. go fairly heavily into game-speak; and as is often the case revolve around combat to an extent that's a little worrying; there are other things that people might want to do in an RPG, and there really isn't a lot of support for them here. Having said that, it's no worse than many other RPGs in this respect, it's supporting one of my favorite charities, and it does have one wonderfully daft supplement, Beach Patrol, which has more emphasis on rescue than fighting. is VERY silly and has rules for things like running in slo-mo, shark-icanes, megalodons, etc. I'm not entirely sure that the rest of the package is worth it just to get this one supplement, so on the whole I'm going to have to say "OK if you really want this sort of thing, but not otherwise."

I'm not really seeing anything to change this, unfortunately.
