Another RPG bundle offer - Dungeon World

This is a repeat of an offer from 2014, before I was added to the promo list for these bundles, so I don't think I've mentioned it before: Dungeon World, a popular system based on the Apocalypse Engine rules:

Dungeon World Class Warfare supplement"This revived December 2014 Dungeon World Bundle once again presents third-party supplements and adventures for the bestselling Apocalypse Engine FRPG Dungeon World. Transplanting Apocalypse World to fantasy, Dungeon World brings indie ideas to traditional dungeon crawls. Because it's published under an open license, many indie designers have published their own DW supplements. This offer -- first of the three DW bundles we've presented to date -- brings back some of the best work from Johnstone Metzger at Chthonstone Games (formerly Red Box Vancouver) and Jason Lutes at Lampblack & Brimstone.

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.

Adventures on Dungeon PlanetThe total retail value of the titles in this revival is US$93. Customers who pay just US$7.95 get all four titles in this revived offer's Starter Collection (retail value $55) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the science-fantasy campaign supplement Adventures on Dungeon Planet (retail price $10) and a trilogy of introductory DW adventures (retail $15 apiece): DW1 Lair of the Unknown, DW2 Island of Fire Mountain, and DW3 Ghostwood Haunts.

Those who pay more than this revival's threshold (average) price, which is set at $14.95 to start, also get this offer's entire Bonus Collection with four more titles worth an additional $38, including the rules expansions Class Warfare (retail $15) and Funnel World (retail $4), the monster manual Terrors of the Ancient World (retail $15), and the setting sourcebook Servants of the Cinder Queen (retail $4).

All these supplements and adventures require the Dungeon World rules (not included in this revival). The free Dungeon World System Reference Document with all the rules is widely available; the Dieheart DW resources page lists many links to the SRD."


I'll be honest, this isn't something that immediately makes me want to drop everything else and start playing it - having said that, the Dungeon Planet supplement (which takes this back to a pulp SF setting) looks like it might be fun, and it looks like you get a fair amount for your money. It may be worth a look if it fits into your style of gaming.
