Bundle of Holding – The Dying Earth RPG

Bundle of Holding - The Dying Earth RPgThis week’s Bundle of Holding is a goodly selection of core books and supplements for Robin D Laws’s The Dying Earth RPG, a game of larger-than-life characters commiting acts of wit, foppery and rhetoric, based on Jack Vance’s fantasy novels of the same name. If you don’t already know of it and want to learn more there’s a fairly comprehensive review by Shannon Appelcline on RPG.net.

My collection of RPG pdfs continues to swell as I am yet again tempted by more irresistable Bundle of Holding goodness!

Bundle of Holding – Over the Edge

Bundle of Holding - Over the EdgeThis week’s Bundle of Holding is Jonathan Tweet and Robin D Laws’s seminal Over the Edge RPG, a surreal game of secrets and conspiracies, set on the fictitious Mediterranean island of Al Amarja. Over the Edge holds a special place in RPG history having departed from the model of predefined character attributes and skills, in favour of open-ended player-chosen traits. And it was among the first to employ a dice pool based resolution mechanic.

Fred Perry’s Gold Digger

Fred Perry's Gold DiggerI’m a long time fan of Fred Perry’s Gold Digger comic series; a fun, high-octane cross of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. And yet somehow Antarctic Press’s Gold Digger Color Gold Brick One Kickstarter had slipped under my radar. I stumbled across it today and jumped on board.

Happy New Year by the way!
