Bundle(s) of Holding: 13th Age and Your Adventures Therein

Pelgrane Press' 13th Age is a D20-based RPG created by a couple of the lead designers from previous editions of Dungeons & Dragons.  I've played the game once, using a Forgeborn (like D&D's Warforged) Necromancer.  The idea of the character was that as fleshy engineers tinkered with metal and wood to make machines, he tinkered… Continue reading Bundle(s) of Holding: 13th Age and Your Adventures Therein

Bundle of Holding: Indie Cornucopia 7

I like it when Bundle of Holding do their Indie Bundles.  They always lead to me finding some cool, new games.  Unlike many of the previous Indie Cornucopia bundles, I'm actually aware of and even own some of these titles!  Let's take a look. The first tier of the bundle costs $12.95 and gets you… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Indie Cornucopia 7

Bundle(s) of Holding: Delta Green and Operations

Most of the Cthulhu mythos material out there is set during or often before the early 20th century.  In the past few years, we've seen some sources bring this mythos into the modern day.  My favourite of these updates is The Laundry Files series by Charles Stross, but another interesting one is the Delta Green… Continue reading Bundle(s) of Holding: Delta Green and Operations

Bundle of Holding: Legacy

Released in 2010, Vincent Baker’s RPG, Apocalypse World has been individually very successful and, more widely, incredibly influential.  In terms of individual success, the game won a number of awards, including the 2010 Indie RPG Award for Most Innovative Game.  In the wider sense, the game has also spawned a lot of spin-off and fan… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Legacy

Bundle(s) of Holding: ARM5 World of Magic

There are two bundles up on Bundle of Holding that feature the fifth edition of Ars Magica, the magical fantasy RPG from Atlas Games.  It was originally published long ago by Lion Rampant and then by my beloved White Wolf (may it rest in peace).  It was actually created by Mark Rein-Hagen, who also created… Continue reading Bundle(s) of Holding: ARM5 World of Magic

Bundle of Holding: Paranoia (The New One)

There are certain games for which I am truly an evangelist.  Paranoia is definitely one of those games.  It's not the game I'd choose to play every week, but it's such a great experience when you do get to break it out.  It gives great opportunities for one-shot silliness.  I loved the 2nd edition of… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Paranoia (The New One)

Bundle of Holding: A Song of Ice and Fire

Well, this is well-timed.  This week's return of the Game of Thrones TV show has been accompanied by a Bundle of Holding featuring the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Game (SIFRPG) from Green Ronin. The bundle contains most of the product line and sets you up for roleplaying in Westeros.  There's a wealth… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: A Song of Ice and Fire

Bundle of Holding: Traveller (D20)

I've been reading the newer Traveller books recently, the 2nd of the Mongoose editions.  My copy of the Vehicle manager arrived today, actually.  Really wanting to run a campaign based on a series of John Scalzi novels. With that in mind, this latest Bundle of Holding grabbed my attention, consisting as it does of a… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Traveller (D20)

Bundle(s) of Holding: Shadowrun (5E)

Shadowrun! As I mentioned in this week's 5 on Friday, I've not played any Cyberpunk roleplaying games before, but I'd quite like to. Shadowrun is the obvious game in this genre. There are a fair few simpler games that really appeal to me, based on the Apocalypse engine, FATE or other systems, but this is… Continue reading Bundle(s) of Holding: Shadowrun (5E)

Bundle of Holding: Mutants & Masterminds Earth-Prime

You know, I've never really been that big on superheroes.  Oh, sure, I'll watch a new Marvel or DC movie, even though I've gotten a bit bored of them, and I'll occasionally try a new comic book.  That said, they're not really my thing.  I can get into a short run of comics, but sustaining… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Mutants & Masterminds Earth-Prime
