Here’s the Maelstrom update:
UPDATE – MAELSTROM BUNDLE
Maelstrom Rome by Graham Bottley is newly added to our revived September 2017 Maelstrom Bundle featuring the 1984 Puffin Books FRPG of 16th-Century Tudor magick and danger. Published just last year, Rome is a 372-page standalone game that adapts the Maelstrom rules for supernatural investigations in the early Roman Empire, AD 50. As politics threaten to tear Roman society apart, weird supernatural events are growing common. Under the patronage of a Senator, you, a normal Roman citizen of ordinary background, gather other like-minded associates to uncover these frightening events. Rome features a full lifepath character creation system, probability-based Magick, rules for Cursing, a bestiary of supernatural creatures setting information, and much more.
If you’ve already purchased this Maelstrom offer, either recently or during its original September 2017 run, all Rome is yours automatically on your Wizard’s Cabinet download page and in your DriveThruRPG Library. When you buy a Bundle of Holding early, you never worry about missing a title added later — even much later. Just visit your Wizard’s Cabinet page on the Bundle site, so our system can add Maelstrom Rome to your DTrpg Library.
And don’t overlook the century-long Maelstrom Domesday Campaign now being funded on Kickstarter.
and here’s the Wikipedia article on Maelstrom: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maelstrom_(role-playing_game). I am not familiar with the system.
Stuck at home? Through MONDAY, APRIL 13 our new Solo Games Bundle lets you play with yourself
Through Monday, April 13 we present the Solo Games Bundle. For self-isolating gamers this new bargain-priced collection presents solitaire roleplaying, board, and miniatures games that give you lots of new ways to play with yourself. All these print-and-play .PDF rules sets are designed for just one player, and several also work fine for two or more gamers confined in the same space. Enliven your quarantine with dungeon crawls, skirmishes in post-apocalyptic and science-fictional landscapes, and several large SoloQuest pick-a-path gamebooks.
Pay just US$7.95 to get all six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $41.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the solo dungeon crawl Exiles of the Wicked Maze (plus the pay-what-you-want expansions Beyond the Wicked Maze: Hazards & Trickery and Wretched Encounters); two skirmish-level miniatures games from Nordic Weasel, Five Klicks From the Zone and Five Men at Kursk; the Old West solo Bad Day at Buena Roca (based on Kenzer and Company’s Aces & Eights, though you don’t need that game to play); and the board game of post-apocalyptic allergies, Mutant Megabloom. And we include a free game too, one of the best solitaire RPGs ever — Shawn Tomkin’s Ironsworn.
And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $17.95 to start, you’ll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $52, including two full-length SoloQuest solitaire adventures, Brothers by Blood and Fallen From Grace; two of Nordic Weasel’s most popular skirmish miniatures games, Five Leagues From the Borderlands and Five Parsecs From Home; and another dungeon-quest generator in the Old School style, Kabuki Kaiser’s Ruins of the Undercity.
Ten percent of your payment (after gateway fees) goes to this offer’s designated charity, Heart to Heart International. Heart to Heart improves health access and administers crisis relief worldwide. HHI provides medicines, supplies, and equipment to safety-net clinics in the US and to international medical teams. Now HHI is delivering urgently needed equipment to providers fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
Stay home! And invite this Solo Games Bundle inside before the offer vanishes Monday, April 13.
