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

Bundle of Holding: Fragged

I like post-apocalyptic settings.  One of the games I really want to play this year is Mutant: Year Zero, which is very much a post-apocalyptic game in the vein of Fallout.  Fragged Empire is another post-apocalyptic setting.  I initially saw the book in a Forbidden Planet in London and I had a flip through.  It… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Fragged

Bundle of Holding: Indie Cornucopia 6

I love it when Bundle of Holding do their Indie bundles.  They always manage to find fun, eclectic mixes of fun, unique, little games.  This latest offering is no exception, presenting a set of six games.  I hadn't heard of any of them before, so it's cool to have that wee bit of discovery, y'know?… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Indie Cornucopia 6

Bundle of Holding: Deathwatch²

This is an odd one.  So, there were a few Warhammer 40,000 RPGs released by FFG over the years of their license with Games Workshop.  They were all the same system, really, but each with a different focus.  Deathwatch is the game that focuses on the Space Marines, the iconic... icon of the 41st millennium. … Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Deathwatch²

Bundle of Holding: Mutant: Year Zero

We've made it clear before just how much we love Modiphius.  They just consistently put out quality and, given the sheer range of great games they offer, it's hard to believe that the company is only six years old.  Anyway, that's enough gushing for now.  There's a bundle up just now on Bundle of Holding… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Mutant: Year Zero

Bundle(s) of Holding: Ars Magica 5th Ed.

Bundle of holding have a couple of offers up just now for Ars Magica, the magical fantasy RPG from Atlas Games.  It was originally published by Lion Rampant and then by my beloved White Wolf.  Indeed, it was created by Mark Rein-Hagen, who also created Vampire: The Masquerade and, with it, the World of Darkness. … Continue reading Bundle(s) of Holding: Ars Magica 5th Ed.

Bundle of Holding: Delta Green

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 of Holding: Delta Green

Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

Mystery is a crucial part of many RPG campaigns, but there are some fundamental issues with the structures of some of these campaigns.  It's great when players find, identify and interpret clues, but they don't always find them, and a couple such misses can leave a mystery unsolvable.  I mean, this can be overcome by… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Lots of Gumshoe

Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer

I'm still looking for the sci-fi RPG that fits me just right, giving me a good system that can be really flexible and gives an interesting setting that both gives a good jumping-off point for stories, but doesn't constrict with an existing and expansive IP.  This latter point, on not being bogged down with a… Continue reading Bundle of Holding: Mindjammer
