Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

A double offering this week from Bundle of Holding.

It's worth noting that there's slightly increased chances of special offerings being the week of Gen Con. If that happens, I'll do what I can to write up a special, off-cycle Bundle Watch, for anything that has short timelines.

Bundle of Holding

This week, Bundle of Holding brings us two Mutants & Masterminds Third Edition bundles. I, for one, am excited. Blame Cthanta Claus for their gift last Cthantmas.

Mutants & Masterminds started off as a d20 OGL spin off, and has evolved into a very cool supers game, which streamlines the d20 system in many ways, while expanding it to meet the needs of the genre (*cough* character creation & options *cough*).

First, BoH has resurrected (in true comics fashion) their Earth Prime bundle from January 2019, which you can find here. It launched Monday, September 13, and runs until 10/4/2021.

The first tier starts off with Green Ronin Publishing's Basic Hero's Handbook. This is a great place to start, and is focused on being a jumping-on point for new players and new gamers. It also includes Hero Lab files! In general, most components of this bundle do also include relevant Hero Lab files, as far as I can tell (I'm only passingly familiar with it, but numerous books do come with these files. Do check if the bundle has ones important for you, don't just take my layman's word for it.)

Next up is Rogues Gallery, with superpowered adversaries for your new heroes to duke it out with (or outwit!), including prewritten hooks for each. Finally, this tier includes Freedom City 3rd Edition, which details one of the settings Green Ronin has created for M&M.

The bonus collection smashes it's way into your collection beginning with the Mutants & Masterminds Third Edition Deluxe Hero's Handbook CRB. This has all you need to run your game, and is both Cthanta and Newscaster Patrick approved. Atlas of Earth-Prime will pair well with your Freedom City supplement, letting you explore the whole Earth (and some other more mysterious locations as well). Hero High (Revised Edition) wraps up the bundle, with teenaged heroes and villains. Good stuff.

===

BoH's second bundle, the Mutants & Masterminds Power-Up bundle, is all new, was launched, and ends on the same dates as the reborn Earth Prime bundle. This one only has one tier though.

It contains the Mutants & Masterminds Deluxe Gamemaster's Guide, Superteam Handbook, and the Time Traveler's Codex. All three bring you more options, resources, archtypes, advice, powers, prebuilt teams, villains, and paradoxes (I can only assume with time travel...)

That's it for me. Excelsior! (please don't sue me for saying "excelsior...")

For those traveling, have a safe trip, and a safe Gen Con!

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

A single offering once again this week from Bundle of Holding.

Bundle of Holding

This week BoH launched a bundle filled with Monte Cook's Numenera. The bundle launched Monday, September 6, and runs through September 27, 2021. You can find it here.

The Discovery tier starts off with its namesake, Numenera Discovery. An update to 2012's Kickstarter, this 2018 update (itself Kickstarted in 2017) expands and refines the original, while staying compatible with the many supplements to the original. You also get the Numenera Character Portfolio alongside the CRB. Priests of the Aeons and the Technology Compendium expand your options, with new options for Aeon Priest and tons of new cyphers and other new macguffins to play with. The Ninth World Guidebook and Maps of the Ninth World & Maps of the Ninth World 2 expand the world for you. Finally, Character & Creature Standups are here to let you represent your character at the table.

The Destiny tier also starts off with its namesake, and introduces new character options, items, and expands the setting. Building Tomorrow and Voices of the Datasphere give yet more options for you as a player or GM - items, optional rules, and the like. GMs will be glad to get three Ninth World Bestiaries, including around 600 creatures (maybe more). Finally, GMs get the Slaves of the Machine God campaign, ten adventures in Explorer's Keys, and "Forgetting Doomsday," "Thief, Clave, and the Ultimatum," and "Shadewalker" adventures.

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

A single offering again this week from Bundle of Holding.

Bundle of Holding

This week's bundle features City of Mist, and launched Monday, August 30. It runs through September 20, 2021, and can be found here.

City of Mist is a comic-book neo-noir supers game built on the popular Powered by the Apocalypse system, combining tag-based motivation and advancement with moods similar to your favorite detective and supernatural shows and comics. This bundle is also keen to draw your attention to QUEERZ!, a soon-to-launch kickstarter campaign for a LGBTQ+ friendly supers RPG based on City of Mist's system. Hit them up to be notified on launch.

So, what's up for grabs?

The basic tier starts off with the All Seeing Eye starter set, City of Mist Player's Guide, MC Toolkit, location maps, and MC screen. Pretty much everything to get rolling, as usual.

The bonus (or "super" collection, if you will ) starts you off with more character options in If Dreams Could Kill; Don't Believe the Truth, a sourcebook covering the Avatars running the City of Mist; a three case story arc in Killing Her Softly, Carnival of Machines, and Broken Glass; the five track City of Mist soundtrack (alas, no vinyl option...); and finally three more sourcebooks that flesh out districts of the city - Independence, La Colonia de Sombras, and Tourist Trap.

That's it from me citizens! (Poof! Smokebomb! {Newscaster Patrick disappears...})

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

Only a single offering this week from Bundle of Holding.

Bundle of Holding

This week's bundle is the Sixth World Stories bundle. It launched Monday, August 23, and runs through September 13.

Shadowrun and fiction have gone hand in hand for a long time. I somehow managed to talk my dad into a pair of novels way back in the day at Walden Books ("Never Deal with a Dragon" and "Choose your Enemies Carfully") before I knew what TTRPGs were. I am sure I'm not the only one with a story like that. This bundle combines some RPG material with fiction. The RPG items come as you'd expect, in PDFs. The fiction comes in epub and Kindle formats.

The base tier starts off with the Shadowrun: Sixth World Beginner Box. It also includes four anthologies of stories, Blood and Chrome, Sprawl Stories, Worlds of Shadows, and Drawing Destiny.

The "Runner Compendium" tier includes the Shadowrun: Sixth World Core Rulebook and seven more novels - Chaser, Frame Job, Johnson Run, Makeda Red, Shaken, Tower of the Scorpion, and Undershadows.

Quick update from me this week. Grab a 'caf and enjoy some entertainment, chummer.

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

Holy cow, busy week! We have a double offer from Bundle of Holding the same week as the double Dr. Who offering, and Humble Bundle also offering up Mutant Chronicles, followed up by a third from BoH.

Bundle of Holding
We start off with two Delta Green offerings which launched Thursday, August 12, and run until Sunday, September 12. These launched as Arc Dream Publishing runs a 25th anniversary Delta Green kickstarter.

First up is a fresh offering of an June 2018 Delta Green offering, which gives you at the basic tier the modern-day conspiracy-horror Agent's Handbook - the player's rulebook for the game - along with 31 short stories between the Extraordinary Renditions and Tales from Failed Anatomies collections.

The second tier "Handler Collection" brings you the Handler's Guide, appropriately, giving the Delta Green GM histories of the world, the resources about Old Ones (and how to create new ones!), and guidance on scenario creation; the Handler's Screen; and seven scenarios across A Night at the Opera and Kali Ghati.

==========


The second Delta Green bundle "Operations", is a fresh chance at the offering for October 2019, which contains more supplements and scenarios.

The basic tier starts off with scenarios - Last Equation, Lover in the Ice and Sweetness. Agent Dossiers collects prewritten character sheets for every profession described in the Agent's Handbook giving you an immediate jumping off point. The Unspeakable Oath issues 22 - 24 and some more fiction offerings (Down in the Delta, The Way It Went Down, & In the Court of the Yellow King) complete this tier.

The bonus tier includes four more operations in Control Group, 21 dossiers for federal agencies and contractors in The Complex, the four part Future/Perfect campaign, A Victim of the Art, and Unspeakable Oath 25.

==========


Last up from Bundle of Holding is the Metamorphosis Alpha (1st Edition) bundle, which launched on August 16, and will run until September 6. You can find it on BoH's page here.

This one features the first edition of Metamorphosis Alpha from 1976, where it was the second ever Science Fiction RPG. Set on a crippled generation ship, you play descendants of those who set out, either as a human, mutant, or robot.

The starter collection begins with the Metamorphosis Alpha rulebook and GM screen and comes to you as a scan of the original game as included in Metamorphosis Alpha Deluxe Collector's Edition, chapter 2; it also includes some errata applied in the margins and a short appendix. This tier includes three sourcebooks, Creatures & Gadgets, The Mutation Manual, and The Warden Armory; as well as the adventures Death Ziggurat in Zero-G and Warden Adventures.

The bonus tier starts off with a 51 page deadly adventure (think Tomb of Horrors here...) in Doom on the Warden, from the successful 2020 Kickstarter. Next, visit Epsilon City's arcologies, if you can make it past the insane AI and wolfoid packs. This bundle finishes up with three more adventures, The Android Underlords, The Captain's Table, The Level of the Lost, and finally Book of Handouts, which includes 16 images for you as the GM to use as you see fit.

==========


Humble Bundle

Not content to sit back after last week's Starfinder offer, Humble's back with a mixed bundle of Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game PDFs and 3D printable miniatures from Modiphius Entertainment, which you can find here.

For a buck, you can have the CRB, Mutant Chronicles Players' Guide, Dark Symmetry Campaign Book, Mutant Chronicles Universal Index, Quickstart, as well as character sheets and a coupon for 50% off the physical book CRB.

For $10, you add The Brotherhood Source Book, Bauhaus Source Book, Capitol Source Book, Cybertronic Source Book, Imperial Source Book, *deep breath* Whitestar Source Book, and Mishima Source Book.

The last tier, at $18, adds Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition Roleplaying Game: Savage Worlds Edition, Dark Legion Campaign Book, Dark Eden Source Book, Dark Eden Campaign Book, a printable decks for locations, Chronicle Points, NPCs, Dark Symmetry Points; Mutant Chronicles GM Screen, Dark Soul Source Book, Luna & Freelancers Source Book, Mutants & Heretics Source Book, Cartel & Orbitals Source Book, an art book, Venusian Apocalypse Campaign Book and 18 3D printable miniature files (apparently with supports).

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

There are two offers this week, both from Bundle of Holding.

Bundle of Holding


Both bundles this week feature Doctor Who Roleplaying Game from Cubicle 7 Entertainment. Cubicle 7 recently announced a renewed licensing agreement, and has published a second edition of Doctor Who. Both bundles launched Monday, August 9, and will run until August 30, 2021.

The first bundle revives the December 2018 Doctor Who RPG bundle, and all titles in this bundle are 100% compatible with the new release of second edition, according to Cubicle 7.

The basic tier gets you the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game CRB, with character sheets premade for the twelfth doctor & companions. It also includes The Time Traveller's Companion, which gives you new player options, information about the physics of time, detailed TARDIS info and creation rules, among other information. Rounding out this tier we have All the Strange, Strange Creatures Volume I, with piles of aliens, and Paternoster Investigations, which takes you to the ever popular Victorian era.

The bonus collection starts with the GM Companion, and Defending the Earth (which is your guide to UNIT - the Unified Intelligence Taskforce) featuring more character options, expanded combat rules including mass combat and skirmish rules, and two adventures. Also included is The Black Archive, referring to a storehouse of alien gadgets and tech (managed by UNIT) - this supplement gives you more UNIT options, background, and characters; The Silurian Age detailing the prehistoric Silurian race (and includes creatures from other Vortex System books); and All of Time and Space Volume 1, a collection of four adventures which, again, are compatible with the most recent revision of Doctor Who.

==========


The second bundle, the "12 Doctors" bundle, brings you the complete run of The Doctor Sourcebooks. The Basic tier includes the first, second, and third doctor sourcebooks, and the second tier brings you fourth through twelfth.

That's it this time! Try not to create too many temporal paradoxes!

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

This week there's an offering from Humble Bundle and one from Bundle of Holding.

Humble Bundle
This time Humble brings us a Starfinder bundle, including a physical tier!

Ok, so starting at the basic $5 level, you get pdfs of Starfinder Core Rulebook, Starfinder First Contact, Starfinder Player Character Folio, the 2018 free RPG day Skitter Shot adventure; Starfinder Society intros The First Test, For the Factions, and Year of the Data Scourge; the first adventure path scenario Fire Starters and numerous flip-mats: Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Tech Dungeon, Starfinder Flip-Mat: Basic Terrain, Starfinder Flip-Mat: Basic Starfield, Starfinder Flip-Mat: Space Station. Not bad for $5, and a good entry point for anyone interested in Starfinder, but who hasn't taken the plunge yet.

For ten bucks more, you add Alien Archive, the Starfinder GM Screen, 2019's Free RPG day offering of Skitter Crash; more society scenarios - Live Exploration Extreme!, Pact World Warriors, and Dreaming of the Future; the continuation of the Dawn of Flame path - Soldiers of Brass and Sun Divers, ... and more flip mats. Starfinder Flip-Mat: Asteroid, Starfinder Flip-Mat: Ghost Ship, Starfinder Flip-Mat: Jungle World, Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Elemental Planes Multi-Pack, and Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Flooded Dungeon.

Thirty dollars gets the top digital tier, adding PDF copies of the Beginner box, Starfinder Pact Worlds, the third free skitter adventure, Skitter Home; more society scenarios - The Withering World and Yesteryear's Truth; parts four, five, and six of the Dawn of Flame path; and three more flip mats...Starfinder Flip-Mat: Cantina, Starfinder Flip-Mat: Urban Sprawl, and GameMastery Flip-Mat: Darklands.

Add $20 on top (for a total of $50 USD) to get a physical copies of the Beginner Box and Pact Worlds. Looks like that doesn't include shipping either folks, so be aware.

==========


Bundle of Holding

This week there's a revived bundle from BoH, bringing back a late 2014 Dungeon World bundle (itself winner of 2012's Golden Geek for best RPG). You can find the offering here.

Dungeon World takes the Apocalypse World Engine and brings it to a world of fantasy, bringing indie ideas to the genre. This revival is of BoH's first DW bundle, collecting third-party works of Johnstone Metzger of Chthonstone Games and Jason Lutes of Lampblack & Brimstone. As such, it doesn't include the Dungeon World core book.

On to the books!

First up in the basic tier you'll find three adventures, DW1: Lair of the Unknown, DW2: Island of Fire Mountain, and DW3: Ghostwood Haunts. This tier also includes Adventures on Dungeon Planet, which brings science-fantasy options to your games, including character classes, races, and equipment for pulp sci-fi.

The bonus collection includes Class Warfare, with more character options and expanded character creation; a collection of monsters in MM1: Terrors of the Ancient World; an implementation of DCC's "0-level Funnel" in Funnel World; and one more adventure in Servants of the Cinder Queen.

Happy adventuring! See you next week (assuming you survive the funnel...)!

==========


Bundle of Holding

This week's Bundle of Holding offer features Warlock!, and launched July 26. It'll be available until August 16, 2021.

Warlock is a fantasy RPG that comes to us inspired by the early days of British roleplaying. Fire Ruby Designs brings us a rules-light game while retaining the dark spirit of the games of the day.

The basic tier brings you Warlock!, which you can use with your chosen setting, or play in a vast kingdom, beset by monsters and enemies! If you do choose the Kingdom, the gazetteer and city book will come in handy at this teir. Warlock! Griff's Vale and Warlock! Three's Company round out the tier, giving you adventures to run.

The bonus collection includes the Warlock! Compendium and Warlock! Compendium 2 providing you some addtional options for careers, spells, items and more! Next up is Warlock! Rogues' Gallery with characters to fill in your game with. If you need some creatures, than the Warlock! Phantasmagoria has you covered, and the ruined Bridgetown might be a good placed for some of them. Last up is Warlock! Goblins!, give you the option of Goblin PCs, and apparently mentioned something about a dwarven were-troll. I guess I'm sold?

Once again, this post brought to you on the road, sans spell-check. Please be gentle with this footsore ranger.

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

Thanks to the amazing artists in the Banner Guild for the amazing banner you see above!

This week I have a single offering to bring to your attention, from mainstay BoH.

Bundle of Holding

This week's offering is courtesy of Evil Hat Productions, who is no stranger to fellow bundle hounds. I'm particularly excited to note that this is the debut offering of the newly completed Fate Accessibility Toolkit. It's always great to see Evil Hat supporting inclusivity in the TTRPG space. Bravo!

The Fate Worlds bundle was launched Monday, July 19, and runs until August 9.

In the Base Bundle, you'll find the core Fate offerings of Fate Core System, Fate Accelerated, and Fate Condensed. Also included are the remaining Fate Toolkits, (Fate System Toolkit, Fate Adversary Toolkit, Fate Horror Toolkit, and Fate Space Toolkit.

The level up tier includes Fate of Cthulhu, all 45 entries of A World of Adventure for Fate Core System. Not content to stop there, you also get the very cool Tachyon Squadron, including the core book and five supplements (you may even find the name of a certian newscaster in the backer list...whistle)

...and still not done...

Fate Worlds, Volume One: Worlds on Fire, Fate Worlds, Volume Two: Worlds in Shadow, Robert Wieland's Kaiju Incorporated: The Roleplaying Game (cheeseheads gotta stick together!), and not to be left out, Shadow of the Century.

Oh did you think that was all? Nope, Young Centurions rounds out the list.

Whew!


This post is brought to you on location vacation from a hotel in Billings, MT.
Pleae forgive grammer, spelling, and punctuation. And not linking each Fate World.ninja

Welcome to the weekly Bundle Watch, where I'll keep an eye out for bundles that might be of interest to the RPGGeek community.

Quick note: I will be away from home for a couple of weeks, and while I expect to be able to post, you never know. So, if the bundle watch is a tad late, or a bit brief the rest of this month, I will thank your for your understanding.

This week we have a Triple Feature from Bundle of Holding!

Bundle of Holding
First we have the Lone Wolf bundle from Bundle of Holding, which launched Wednesday, July 7, and runs through Monday, July 26.

This bundle features another chance at their March 2019 bundle from Cubicle 7 Entertainment. Lone Wolf was made famous by Joe Dever's Lone Wolf Gamebooks, which have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been adapted into multiple computer games and several different tabletop RPGs.

The Basic Collection brings you the Lone Wolf Adventure Game, Heroes of Magnamund, Magnamund Menagerie, and the Narrator's Screen (Lone Wolf Adventure Game), as always, in DRM-free PDF form.

The Bonus Collection tier includes The Realm of Sommerlund, Bestiary of the Beyond, Terror of the Darklords, and Adventures of the Kai.

It will also be the last time that BOH can offer this line. Cubicle 7 has announced it will no longer be publishing the Lone Wolf line shortly, which will soon become unavailable.

===================================================================


Next up is the revived Fragged Empire bundle, which launched July 12 and runs through August 2, 2021.

This offering brings back the January 2019 bundle which features the sci-fi tactical RPG Fragged Empire. Set in a far (far) future, Fragged Empire: Core Rule Book is built for sandbox campaigns full of tactical miniatures, exploration, trade, and intrigue. You also will find The Ghost Ship Carthage, Fragged Empire: Protagonist Archive, Let Sleeping Gods Lie, and Fragged Empire: HACKED rounding out the basic collection.

If you go for the bonus collection you can take your post-post-apocalypse (postapocalypsepunk? neopostapocalypsist? idk... wow) game in different directions - into the fantasy world of Akharon with addtional options included, the seas of Toil, or the dieselpunk continent of Cronicia (I knew there was a punk in there somewhere!).

===================================================================


Last, but not least, also launched July 12 and running until August 2 is the Fragged Aeternum bundle.

If you didn't get enough settings in the last Fragged bundle, this one is here to bring you over the top. Set in an endless, eternal, city; rarely is death the end. Upon death, the soul rises in a ghostly green, either to ascend to the sky, or crawl into the ground. Unfortunately for most, they do the latter.

Dig into the Fragged Aeternum core setting book with the basic bundle, and use the Antagonist Archive and a collection of adventures to further expand your Fragged Empire playground.

The bonus collection includes setting books for three Fragged settings in Greyburgh Market, Rachel Swagger's Guide to Mishpacha, and Arcane Bay, and armory sourcebooks for each setting (4 total).
