Colonial Gothic is one of those games that I've picked up occasional pieces of over the years because of my love of history and the twist that Colonial Gothic gives to it. An opportunity to pick up over a dozen books for it for about 20 bucks is simply a no brainer.
The way I see it, you don't even need to use the system behind the books to enjoy the books (I probably won't) but I could see myself hacking Swords & Wizardry Light to run something like this.
Damn these useful Bundles of Holding!
This one has a short window - just over 2 days left.
Hero! The Founders bring you the Colonial Gothic Bundle, featuring the new Third Edition of the supernatural flintlock-horror tabletop roleplaying game Colonial Gothic from Rogue Games.

I bring offers like this to your attention because I think they are amazing deals and I'd hate for my readers to miss out on them. You can always buy me a beer later ;)
