I received this e-mail from Bundle of Holding today – Worldbuilder’s Toolkit 7 and Worldbuilder’s Toolkit 4 Revived Bundles – http://bundleofholding.com/presents/Toolkit7 and http://bundleofholding.com/presents/2020Toolkit4. These could come in handy if you are writing books as the concepts would apply to building worlds if you are designing a new world. If you previously purchased the Worldbuilder’s Toolkit 4 Bundle, check your account as it should include any new items in the revived bundle.
Through TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24 build your gamemastering skills with our all-new Worldbuilder’s Toolkit 7 (Suppressed Transmission! Beating the Story! Lazy DM!) and the revived November 2016 Toolkit 4 (Focal Point! Kobold Guides! Fat Goblin!)

DRACULA DOSSIER GOES TO ITS GRAVE (AGAIN) TONIGHT!
Today is your last chance to get our resurrected December 2017 Dracula Dossier Bundle featuring the epic improvised horror-espionage campaign for Night’s Black Agents from Pelgrane Press. Kenneth Hite and Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan designed this brilliant sandbox of modern maneuvers against a very old foe. In the Dracula Dossier campaign, investigators follow up leads in the margins of Dracula Unredacted, a rare unexpurgated edition of Bram Stoker’s masterpiece that reveals the terrifying truth behind the fiction. Players choose which leads to track, which scarlet trail to follow. The Director, using the clear step-by-step techniques in these ebooks, improvises a suitably blood-soaked thriller in response to their choices. Together you create your own unique story — and you learn why Ben Riggs at Geek & Sundry called The Dracula Dossier the greatest RPG campaign ever. This comprehensive offer includes the Night’s Black Agents rulebook and the complete Dracula Dossier line — a US$119 retail value for about $32.50. But you must execute this Dracula Dossier mission today!
(Pelgrane Press has a great eyes-only page of Dracula Dossier resources.)
TO REACH NEW WORLDS, FIRST BUILD THEM
Through Tuesday, November 24 we present two Worldbuilder’s Toolkit offers, the latest installments in our annual (well, mostly) collections of gamemastering aids. Of all the Bundle of Holding series (OSR, Cornucopia, Fate, Tentacles, Nerves, etc.), the Toolkits are the most successful. The all-new Worldbuilder’s Toolkit 7 may be the strongest yet, with two Suppressed Transmission collections by Kenneth Hite, two books by star designer Robin D. Laws, two Lazy DM titles from Sly Flourish, a Kobold Guide, and more. And alongside this new seventh installment we’ve revived the November 2016 Toolkit 4, with Engine Publishing’s Focal Point, two more Kobold Guides, and more.
TOOLKIT 7 [all-new]
Pay just US$9.95 to get all five titles in this Toolkit 7 offer’s Starter Collection (retail value $42.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the Kobold Guide to Gamemastering; The White Box Essays, with Jeremy Holcomb’s advice on creating and publishing your own game (Gameplaywright); Palladium’s comprehensive Compendium of Contemporary Weapons; a big bunch of simple ready-to-run dungeon maps from Dicegeek, Dungeons for the Master; and 20 Dungeon Starters, a choice array of pick-up-and-play adventure recipes from Lampblack & Brimstone for Dungeon World or any fantasy RPG.
