Bundle Operator

With Halloween looming like a crouched beast, this year’s “October Horrors” sequence concludes with the Bundle of Tentacles 5, our fifth annual (well, mostly) collection of scenarios for Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu RPG inspired by H. P. Lovecraft‘s Cthulhu Mythos. You have until Monday, November 19 to muster your Sanity and investigate this all-new offer with big collections from Stygian Fox Publishing and Arc Dream Publishing, plus the Black Armada story game Lovecraftesque.

Pay just US$6.95 to get all four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks: the Stygian Fox modern-day scenario collection The Things We Leave Behind (plus its 104-page collection of play aids, The Mark of Evil) and its modern magic supplement The Book of Contemporary Magical Things; Arc Dream’s Old Ones Rising (reprinting four issues of the seminal Mythos magazine The Unspeakable Oath); and for fun we’re throwing in the free Dicegeeks reprint of the 1894 Cambridge University lecture on Libraries in the Medieval and Renaissance Periods, a fact-filled resource for Keepers and gamemasters who prize authentic historical detail. (You can also download this free ebook from Project Gutenberg.)

And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $16.95 to start, you’ll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with three more titles worth an additional $48:
Ten percent of your payment (after gateway fees) goes to a highly Mythos-appropriate charity, American Veterans Archaeological Recovery, a nonprofit that rehabilitates disabled military veterans through goal-oriented, team-centered excavations with a community of archaeological researchers. AVAR CEO Steven Humphreys says, “We don’t find many cursed artifacts (some…), but doing this stuff gets about as close as most of us really want to be to the type of adventures we create in roleplaying games.”

The stars are right! — At least through Monday, November 19, when this Bundle of Tentacles 5 vanishes into the Dreamlands.
