Bundle of Holding - Rifts

Tenkar's Tavern - 21 hours 57 min ago

From the Summer of '94 until the Winter of '97, my gaming group played a shit ton of Rifts (when I wasn't running AD&D 2e). Sure, the system needed to be balanced, if not totally rewritten, but the setting lore was second to none. It simply oozed flavor and adventure hooks.

Currently, Bundle of Holding has two Bundles with Rifts material - one is the Rifts Core Megabundlecore:

Adventurer! This revived December 2022 Rifts® Core Megabundle once again gives you a gigantic array of .PDF rulebooks, supplements, and sourcebooks for Kevin Siembieda's Rifts tabletop roleplaying game from Palladium Books. You have a new chance to get everything you need to run a complete campaign of mind-blowing adventure across a future Earth shattered by countless otherworldly invasions.

For just US$19.95 you get all seven titles in this revived December 2022 offer's Corebook Collection (retail value $71) as DRM-free ebooks, including the complete Rifts Ultimate Edition core rulebook (plus the Rifts Primer); the Adventure Guide, Game Master Guide, and Game Master Kit; and Index and Adventures V1 and V2.

And if you pay more than this revival's threshold price of $40.60, you'll level up and also get this revived offer's entire Sourcebook Collection with eleven more titles worth an additional $129, including Sourcebook One, Book of Magic, the Bestiary, Black Market, the Bionics Sourcebook, all three Conversion books (Book One, Two: Pantheons of the Megaverse, Three: Dark Conversions), and three more sourcebooks: Vampires, The Mechanoids, and Mindwerks.

The other bundle is the Rifts Coalition Wars Bundle:

Look sharp, adventurer! This Rifts® Coalition Wars Bundle is the second of two offers in progress featuring .PDF ebooks for the Rifts tabletop roleplaying game from Palladium Books of a shattered Earth invaded by countless realities. If you're new to the game, start with our revived December 2022 Rifts Core Megabundle in progress. Then return here for this new companion bundle with sourcebooks and storylines that showcase one of the setting's dominant powers, the high-tech Coalition States.

For just US$17.95 you get all seven titles in our Coalition Collection (retail value $72) as DRM-free ebooks, including Coalition War Campaign, Coalition Navy, Secrets of the Coalition States, and four supplements about the soldiers-for-hire who fight this war: Mercenaries, MercOps, MercTown, and Mercenary Adventures.

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $38.53, you'll level up and also get our entire Tolkeen Collection with eight more titles worth an additional $97, including the most recent Rifts supplement, Coalition Manhunters, and the entire seven-part Siege on Tolkeen campaign: Coalition Wars, Coalition Overkill, Sorcerer's Revenge, Cyber-Knights, Shadows of Evil, Final Siege, and Aftermath.

Mini-Mod Brainstorming: Tomb of Horror

The Splintered Realm - Tue, 05/21/2024 - 22:07

For my tomb of horrors Mini-Mod, I'm thinking of compressing areas (obviously), and layering several traps/tricks into each encounter area. For example, the 'entry' would have five doors to choose from (I am thinking of counting backwards Sesame Street style.... five doors, four statues, then three gargoyles, then two paths, and then one demi-lich). It would be designed for characters of level 5+ in Hack'D... 

1. Five doors. Pretty easy: one of the doors is the entry (but has a trick to opening it) while the other four are guaranteed death.

2. Four statues. Each statue activates something in the room (mostly traps and magical effects), but you have to trigger one to get into the pit that has a secret door at the bottom into the third area. All have big open mouths you have to interact with. One pit has flames, one has reverse gravity to hit the ceiling with spikes sticking out of it... stuff like that.

3. Three gargoyles (because there was a gargoyle in the original, natch). I'm thinking of some sort of round robin thing, or puzzle where the gargoyles take turns inhabiting the characters, and the characters pop into gargoyle bodies randomly. Or something. They have to kill one gargoyle in particular, but not the other two (damage to 2 and 3 restores 1?)

4. A false tomb with two doorways. They are revealed only when you defeat the false lich and figure out the clue in the bottom of his casket that it's not him. One doorway teleports you to someplace really bad (hades?) and the other leads into the actual tomb (probably just as bad).

5. Real tomb with real demi-lich. As close to the original encounter as possible.

The MUCH-ANTICIPATED Sequel to Shagduk is Now on Kickstarter

Jeffro's Space Gaming Blog - Tue, 05/21/2024 - 16:04

You may have missed out on Shagduk. If you did, you should feel bad! It really is the best novel to come out during the past several years. Here is my old Amazon review of the book:

Shagduk is great.

Yeah, it’s got weirdness, wonder, mystery, intrigue, and magic. Of course, it does! But all of that stuff hits the mark only because the rest of the book nails down 1977 Fort Worth, Texas musician/librarian so well. It just makes everything else pop!

We’ve all seen the repackaged versions of previous decades that are just oddly, even perilously off. We scream at televisions when our childhood soulscape is retuned for a Current Year ethos. You wonder sometimes if anyone will ever stand in the gap for you in this. Well, somebody did. My favorite bits are the music shop with the No Barney Miller sign, finding occult insights in the Mini-Pages, and flipping a calculator upside down to spell dirty words– all stuff I didn’t even know I’d forgotten. Stuff that really defined the furniture of a pre-internet world.

I think the most important thing this book captures is the sense of the time before the cocooning of America. VCR’s and microwave popcorn meant that nobody went out anymore back in the day– a soft foreshadowing of our too-recent lockdown life. 1977 wasn’t like that at all. Normal people want to go out and do things. A normal culture has things going on all the time. Not just countless regional music acts, but Scottish Tartan Thistle Dancers, too.

I miss that time. I miss those people.

If that doesn’t sell you on the book, then check out my what my pal Night Danger just said:

I didn’t think anyone after Lovecraft would ever do “Academic stumbles upon eldritch horrors” in an interesting or exciting way and yet here we are.

Holy cow! Yes! This book is so so great you will be shocked to realize that nobody could pull this off until now. It really is that mind blowing!

And now this incredible story has a sequel. Yes, this book which is better than every single new work sitting in your local big box book store has a sequel. There hasn’t been anything this exciting going since Roger Zelazny was still writing Amber novels. And you have a chance to get in on the ground floor and make this phenomenal author the success he deserves to be.

I am calling all of you out here. I have given away great gaming advice and discoveries for free right here on this blog for years. I never hawk my wares. I never hold out my rice bowl. I have done everything in my power to get you off of the endless module treadmill, to save you from tacky role-playing games that would sap your money and then never deliver any solutions to the actual problems you face at the table.

You owe me.

And the way you can pay me back is by supporting my friends Neal and JB over at Pilum books. So, get in there and back this thing today. I want this book fully funded on day one.

Now, get to it!
