Bundle of Holding sent the e-mail after I received an e-mail from the company doing the latest Bundle of Holding (see below) – Apocalypse Engine 4. It doesn’t appear to be a revived bundle. I have never played any of this company’s Role-Playing Games (RPGs). Here’s the Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powered_by_the_Apocalypse.
Just wanted to take a second to let you know that the Bundle of Holding has a new bundle that just launched an hour ago that features some of our products. It’s got The Veil, The Veil: Cascade, and Uncanny Echoes. There’s a bunch of other awesome titles in there and the bundle is all exclusively Powered by the Apocalypse stuff if you’re into that!
If you’re unfamiliar with the Bundle of Holding, it’s a limited-time deal that runs for a couple weeks where you donate money to get some games and a portion of that money goes to charity, in this case, Heart to Heart International in the fight against COVID-19. The rest of the money does go to the publishers, DrivethruRPG (yes, they get added to your library here as well!), and admin fees for hosting and running the bundle.
The cheapest way to get all the games is to donate early, as the average threshold of donation increases as time goes by. Currently, $8 nabs you 3 games:
- The Veil: Cyberpunk RPG
- Sword, Crown, and Unspeakable Power
- Beat the Boss
and if you donate $20 or more, you also get another 4 games:
- The Veil: Cascade
- The Warren
- Comrades: A Revolutionary RPG
- Uncanny Echo: 10 Supernatural Games
Check it out if you’re interested in helping fight the pandemic and supporting some publishers while you’re at it!

Through MONDAY, MAY 25 the Apocalypse Engine Bundle 4 brings you an all-new fourth lineup of RPGs Powered by the Apocalypse

OUR FOURTH APPROACH TO THE APOCALYPSE
Through Monday, May 25 we present the Apocalypse Engine Bundle 4, our fourth collection of RPGs Powered by the Apocalypse — that is, based on Vincent and Meguey Baker’s landmark indie game Apocalypse World. The Bundle of Holding’s first Apocalypse Engine offer appeared to great success in September 2015; the second, September 2016. Since our third Apocalypse in June 2018, many new PbtA games have debuted. Sometimes it’s a little hard to keep up!
Pay just US$7.95 to get all three complete games in our Starter Collection (retail value $35) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the bestselling cyberpunk RPG from Fraser Simons, The Veil; a game of thron– er, of cutthroat fantasy intrigue, The Sword, The Crown, and the Unspeakable Power, aka SCUP; and an instructive game about organizing on the job and in the community, Beat the Boss.
(How closely does SCUP model Game of Thrones? Check the list from this February 2018 Cannibal Halfling review: “For your reference, Tyrion is The Voice, Cersei is The Crown, Jon Snow is The Spur, Varys is The Lyre, Melisandre is The Hex, Ramsey is The Screw, Arya is The Black Hood, Bran is The Adept, Danaerys is The Beloved, Jamie is The Gauntlet, and Sam is The Bloodletter.”)
And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $19.95 to start, you’ll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $60, including Cascade, a full-length campaign supplement for The Veil (plus the quickstart rules for the forthcoming The Veil: Inheritance); an intense game of wildlife survival, The Warren, along with its Predator Cards print-and-play deck; Comrades: A Revolutionary RPG; and a big collection of linked one-episode games, Uncanny Echo: 10 Supernatural Games.
Ten percent of your payment (after gateway fees) goes to this offer’s pandemic-related 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.
To do it, do it! — That is, get this Apocalypse Engine Bundle 4 before its endgame Monday, May 25.
