Bundle of Holding - Indie +2 - Lords of Gossamer and Shadow, Rocket Age and Uresia

I do like some of the "indie" games out there and the current Bundle of Holding has some good picks.

I was a backer of the Lords of Gossamer and Shadow Kickstarter and I'm very happy how it turned out. It is in many ways the spiritual successor of Amber Diceless (an amazing game that requires a strong GM). I'm looking forward to playing some LoG&S in the future.

Rocket Age intrigues me. I've got the last couple of Quick Starts from the Free RPG Days and I can see myself playing this in some short story arcs.

Uresia I know little about. It''s a systemless setting of apparent strangness.

As for the "beat the average" extras, Torchbearer is another Kickstarter I backer. Beautiful book, no idea if I'll ever play it. Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine and Nobilis 3E: The Essentials I know no more about than what's stated on the Bundle of Holding page.

I think I'm in for the basic 9.95 this time around. Worth it for Rocket Age alone for me and Lords of Gossamer & Shadow for the rest of you ;)


  1. I own LoG&S as well and I think its a fine product. It's worth buying the bundle for it alone.
    I also agree Torchbearer is an excellent product front to back.

  2. I think Uresia is best described as a celebration of fantasy gaming, in worldbook form.

  3. Hmm, I have the BESM d20 version of Uresia ... tempting.
