Bundle of Nerves +3

Bundle of Holding asked us to participate in their Halloween promotions, and when we saw what they were including, we just had to jump on board. Starting with the most important aspect, 10% of the money raised goes to the National Center forMissing & Exploited Children. This is an organization dedicated to fighting some of our world's most horrifying monsters.
After that, customers can buy in at two different levels. At the base level ($9.95), buyers receive PDFs of Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition as well as The Horror Companion. (Conveniently, the two books required to play Accursed!) They also receive Silent Legions from Sine Nomine Publishing, a modern Cthulhu game with mechanics in keeping with the OSR movement.
Buyers who buy at more than the threshold price (initially $19.95) receive a whole bunch more. First off, they receive Accursed. We're guessing you already know about that since you're viewing our site. They also receive Rippers and the Rippers Companion from Pinnacle, a brilliant setting that focuses on Victorian Monster Hunters. Finally, they receive Shadows of Esteren Book 1 Universe. This is a lavishly illustrated game setting of medieval gothic horror.
The folks at Bundle of Holding tell me that there's still more coming, and I'm excited to see it. Buyers who join in now get anything that might be added to the bundle later as well. However, that threshold price for bonus books does go up over time, so if you want in, it's better to buy early. The base offer is $40 in books for $10. The bonus offer is $100 in books for $20. I don't think you can go wrong with either, even if you already have some of those books.
Thanks for your attention, and please help us to spread the word about this great deal.

Old School Blue - Geomorphic Dungeon Tiles

We've just launched a new set of print-on-demand products, as part of Melior Via's Maps and Tools line.
There are currently four sets available:
Each tile is a six-inch square, with the grid marked out in the classic blue from old adventure maps. They are otherwise undetailed, so that they can be used for dungeons, space ships, office buildings, or any other combat map that your game needs. The back of each tile is a blank 6-inch grid, useful for quickly expanding any of the maps into a larger area.

Tiles do have a matte coating, which works well with dry-erase markers. It's easy quickly indicate room features like doors or traps, and then wipe it away when the encounter is complete.

Because of their small size and stack-ability, the tiles are quick to pack up and easy to lay down as the battlefield grows on your next game night.

Old School Blue Geomorphic Tiles are compatible with Blue Dungeon Tiles from Red Kobold Games.

I shot a quick video to give a brief overview of the tiles.

We're up to twenty products in our store now, and that's all thanks to the continued support and interest of our fellow gamers. Recently, we even saw releases of the game setting in Portuguesefrom our licensees at Retropunk as well as the first deck of NPC cards fromWarning Label, LLC.

A Night at the Museum

Violence, murder, and a lingering paranormal presence bring Corktown Precinct investigators to the Detroit Institute of Art. Two guards are dead, priceless artifacts are smashed, and a 2,000 year old mummy is missing. Or is it?

A Release, a Sale, and some News

We have a few small announcements that we need to share.
New Release
Last week, we released Fall of the Tower, an adventure for Accursed. This began as a special event run at Gen Con 2014 for a few of our Kickstarter backers. It represents a turning point in the struggle for the future of Morden, a savage blow struck against either the Witches who have conquered the land or the Order of the Penitent that seeks to save it.
