PAYPAL CHANGED THINGS ON US
Last week several North America-based customers reported they couldn’t purchase a Bundle offer via PayPal without first creating a PayPal account. This was news to us. Until recently, PayPal permitted US and Canadian users to pay via credit card as guests.
We’re adding a new option to pay directly with a credit card via PayPal’s owner, Braintree. That option won’t be ready until the new year. As before, the Bundle of Holding site still won’t see or record your credit-card information; only the payment processor sees that.
Users outside North America can apparently still pay as guests via PayPal. No idea how long that situation will prevail.
Through Monday, January 10, 2022 we present the new HERO System 5E Megabundle, a colossal array of nearly three dozen rulebooks and supplements that use the 2004 Fifth Revised Edition (“FRED”) of the all-encompassing HERO System from Hero Games.
The Bundle of Holding has presented FRED and its voluminous support line in no less than seven past offers, yet never managed to encompass the whole era. This new HERO 5E Megabundle fills the gaps, adding the Star and Pulp Hero 5E lines, Ninja and Post-Apocalyptic Hero, and a few key supplements we never found room for — all told, it’s 6,800 pages of HERO material. Of 35 titles in this offer, 16 are new to the Bundle of Holding.
Pay just US$29.95 to get all sixteen titles in our Hero 5E Core Collection (retail value $176.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including FRED (and Sidekick); the Bestiary, Combat Handbook, Equipment Guide, and Vehicle Sourcebook for 5E; all seven genre toolkits (Fantasy, Star, Pulp, Post-Apocalyptic, Ninja, Urban Fantasy, and Lucha Libre Hero); and the Resource Kit and Map Archive.
And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $39.95 to start, you’ll also get our entire Bonus Collection with nineteen more titles worth an additional $162.50, including nine Fantasy Hero 5E supplements, five Star Hero 5E sourcebooks, four Pulp Hero books, and You Gotta Have Character.

This heroically wide-ranging HERO System 5E Megabundle vanishes Monday, January 10, 2022.
Of the 35 titles in this HERO 5E Megabundle, 16 are new to the Bundle of Holding. Nineteen titles have appeared in one or more of six past offers — the original HERO System Bundle (June 2013), Champions 5E (Sept 2014, revived Jan 2016), Champions Ultimate (Jan 2016), Early HERO (Nov 2018), Fantasy Hero Essentials and Fantasy Hero Settings (both May 2019), and Hero Magazines (Sept 2020).
This HERO Megabundle’s Core Collection presents six titles for the first time (total retail value $75.50): Bestiary 5E, Combat Handbook, Equipment Guide 5E, Star Hero 5E, Ninja Hero 5E, and Post-Apocalyptic Hero. (Wait, have we never before presented any edition of Ninja Hero? Can that be?!)
This Megabundle’s Bonus Collection has ten titles new to the Bundle (total retail $81): all five Star Hero sourcebooks, all four Pulp Hero books, and You Gotta Have Character.
BUT WHAT ABOUT CHAMPIONS?
There’s more FRED ahead! Stay tuned!
