And another RPG bundle offer - Changeling 20th Anniversary

This is an unexpected extra bundle sold for a fairly sad reason; one of the creators has died, and her partner needs help with medical and other expenses:

In 1997 White Wolf published Changeling: The Dreaming, fifth and last of the original Storyteller System game lines that together composed the World of Darkness. Seen by some as a lighter, more fantasy-based contrast to the other Gothic-Punk games (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, and Wraith), and by others as the darkest game White Wolf had yet created, Changeling made its half-fae characters face what happens once creativity and magic fades from their lives. A December 2015 US$380K Kickstarter campaign by Onyx Path Publishing funded the Changeling: the Dreaming 20th Anniversary Edition, which compiled and completed the concepts of that deceptively bright yet terrifying world.

White Wolf game designer Jackie CassadaMany of Changeling's dreams were first imagined by the late Jackie Cassada, a prolific writer for multiple White Wolf game lines in collaboration with her partner of 57 years, Nicky Rea. The RPG industry functions on a work-for-hire model, and Nicky and Jackie received no royalties for most of their work. In December 2020 both Nicky and Jackie contracted COVID-19. Nicky survived, with lasting complications; Jackie passed away December 29, aged 71. Now 69 years old, with major medical and financial concerns, Nicky might soon become homeless. Mage: The Ascension line developer Satyros Phil Brucato has organized a GoFundMe campaign for Nicky Rea, and Onyx Path Publishing has kindly contributed this Jackie's Dreaming benefit that presents much of the Changeling 20A line for a bargain price. All money from this offer (after payment gateway fees) goes to help Nicky through a tough time.

We provide each game title complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format); the fiction titles are also provided in ePub and Kindle (mobi) formats.
