Another RPG bundle offer - Zobeck 5E

This one's a campaign setting and associated material for 5th edition D&D rules. It seems to be a fantasy / steampunk hybrid setting.

Zobeck Gazetteer for Fifth Edition"This all-new Zobeck 5E Bundle presents recent third-party sourcebooks and adventures from Kobold Press for D&D Fifth Edition. Though easily transportable to any FRPG setting, these supplements are set in the Kobold campaign world of Midgard, a land of deep magic inspired by the myths and folklore of Eastern and Central Europe. In particular, this offer explores the beating heart of Midgard: the Crossroads region and the Free City of Zobeck.

Born in the fires of revolution, Zobeck -- a protectorate of Rava, the Clockwork Goddess -- shares borders with the dwarven Ironcrag cantons, the undead-ruled Blood Kingdom of Morgau, the human kingdom of the Magdar, and the Duchy of Perun's Daughter -- and, belowground, the dark and hungry Ghoul Imperium. Famous throughout Midgard for its alchemy, clockwork magics, steamworks, its magnificent Arcane Collegium, and its egalitarianism, Zobeck is a bustling trade hub of active marketplaces and dark, deadly alleyways.

(It's easy to locate the Crossroads and Zobeck on this cool Midgard zoomable map on the Kobold Press website.)

The Bundle of Holding visited Zobeck early in our history, with the Pathfinder and d20 supplements in our July 2013 Bundle of Zobeck -- our fifth offer ever. (This new Zobeck 5E offer is #530 or so.) Kobold Press has kept the Free City current, with 5E conversions of the main sources and a steady stream of new expansions, crowdfunded through Kobold's Warlock magazine Patreon and campaigns such as the May 2019 Empire of the Ghouls Kickstarter. This new offer presents Empire and other recent Zobeckian adventures, along with the popular Underworld Player's Guide and Eldritch Lairs.

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 (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.

Kobold Press Empire of the Ghouls for Fifth EditionThe total retail value of the titles in this offer is US$111. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all three 5E titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $35) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the 5E versions of the Zobeck Gazetteer (retail $15) and Streets of Zobeck (retail price $10), along with Eldritch Lairs (retail $10). (Note: We presented Pathfinder versions of Streets and the Gazetteer in our July 2013 Bundle of Zobeck. These are the conversions for D&D Fifth Edition.)

Those who pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $17.95 to start, also get our entire Bonus Collection with four more 5E titles worth an additional $76, including Empire of the Ghouls (retail $35) and its Map Pack (retail $10); the Underworld Player's Guide (retail $16) with rules for eight subterranean player character races; and the first Warlock Grimoire (retail price $15), compiling material drawn from the magazine made possible by Kobold's long-running Warlock Patreon campaign.

I'm not really into fantasy settings any more, so won't be investigating this in depth. It's nicely presented and you're getting quite a lot for your money, so it's probably worth taking a look if you're into 5E settings.
