I love games powered by the apocalypse.

Monster of the Week is a great book and I really want to get my hands on World Wide Wrestling.
 
Through Wednesday, September 16, our Apocalypse Engine Bundle brings you a new collection of RPGs Powered by the Apocalypse -- that is, based on Vincent Baker's fantastically original 2010 RPG Apocalypse World. From supernatural romance to smuggling to pro wrestling, these wide-ranging games let you pick a playbook, try your Moves, roll 2D6, and play to find out what happens.

For just US$7.95 you get all five titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $37) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

- Apocalypse World (lumpley games, retail price $15): The revolutionary game of post-disaster action and story. Did you see Fury Road? This is that.
- Monsterhearts (Buried Without Ceremony, retail $10): The messy lives of teenage monsters. (Previously presented in our April 2013 Bundle of Holding +2.)
- Monsterhearts: Blood of Misty Harbour (Buried Without Ceremony, retail $5): A complete three-episode mini-series for Monsterhearts.
- Bootleggers: Smuggling Run (One Seven Designs, retail $7): Crooks smuggling alcohol in 1930s Seattle. By John Harper, designer of Blades in the Dark and Lady Blackbird.
- Cartel (Magpie Games, retail $5): "Ashcan edition" of Mark Diaz Truman's game of Mexican narcofiction in the Sinaloa crime ring.

And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which starts at $16.95, you gain +1 forward and also get our entire Bonus Collection of four more titles (retail value $44.50):

- World Wide Wrestling (NDP Designs, retail $10): Feuds, betrayals, and righteous victory in a grand and action-filled setting.
- Monster of the Week (Evil Hat, retail $12): The new version of the most accessible Apocalypse game, about hunting monsters a la Buffy, Supernatural, and X-Files.
- Legacy: Life Among the Ruins (UFO Press, retail $12.50): Centuries-spanning family sagas in the wake of apocalypse.
- Deniable (StoryWeaver Games, retail $10): Unwitting spies, tempted by easy money, get into fixes right out of A Fish Called Wanda.

Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Remember the Apocalypse World dictum: To do it, do it! Preferably before this Apocalypse Engine offer ends Wednesday, September 16.

Would anyone happen to have a picture or list of the GMs and games offered at the Games on Demand room for Saturday night at 8pm from Origins?

I am trying to track down the name of the game and GM for that session and my memory and tendency to photograph this sort of thing have both failed me.

It was a cyberpunk take on Apocalypse World and NOT the Sprawl and it was table #1 (I think), if that helps.

I am writing up my origins experience and I want to give credit where it is due for my brother's #1 experience of the con.

Would anyone in the Columbus area happen to know of a reputable property management company that is willing to take on single units properties?

Alternatively, is anyone out there interested in renting a 1BR Condo just off Olentangy River road near Bethel?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

"C.R. O'Neil do property management; they are managing two houses for my parents now."

ITS GETTING BIGGER!!!!
 
We're adding yet another tabletop roleplaying game to the Bundle of Holding's Indie Treasure Trove. God-King by Daniel Cruz Chan is a beautifully illustrated Asian-fantasy storygame of exploration on a magical lost continent.

"In the Empire's archives the Scholar discovers a tattered map of a place he believed to have been only a fairy tale: Otugari. Despite the Scholar's best efforts to convince him otherwise, the Emperor, unwilling to spare any resource during a time of war, has forbidden expeditions to this 'mythical' land. Against the orders of the Emperor, The Scholar, tired of the country's war, assembles a ragtag group of adventurers -- Warrior, Healer, Navigator, and Mystic -- and sets off across the sea. The Otugari they discover, however, is not what they expected." God-King creates the story of their journey -- and the dramatic twist that strains the characters' allegiances and forces a dramatic decision.

As a bonus, we're also adding Daniel's 10-page Haunt Me, a short-form experimental haunted-house RPG about the pain we hide from others.

With these additions the Indie Treasure Trove's core collection grows to eight fine games. These include some of the most honored titles in the indie RPG scene, such as Dust Devils, the Gothic-themed Annalise, and 3:16 - Carnage Amongst the Stars. All previous purchasers receive the new additions automatically on their Wizard's Cabinet download page.

For another day and a half, you get all eight DRM-free .PDF rulebooks for a price you set yourself -- as little as US$3. And if you pay higher than the current average (around $13.25 right now), you'll also get three bonus games: the newly annotated version of the pioneering Sorcerer, the disaster-film simulator Our Last Best Hope, and the acclaimed Diana Jones Award nominee of colonial oppression, Dog Eat Dog.

This past weekend the Indie Treasure Trove broke all previous Bundle of Holding records. We've sold over 1,200 copies and earned over $16,000 for our indie designers and their two chosen charities, Heifer International and War Child International. See why this stellar collection has made gamer jaws drop. But act fast -- the Indie Treasure Trove offer ends tomorrow, Tuesday, September 10.

If you are going to Origins 2015 and have some RPG materials or board games you would like to trade away for new to you RPG materials or board games, then why not participate in the board game geek Origins Math Trade.

Takes place at 10 AM on the Saturday of the convention.

Don't be shy about asking questions on how to participate!

CRAZY!
 
Good god, how did evolution get to this horrible creature, this demonic caterpillar "that eats living flesh"? Everything about it is repugnant, the kind of stuff you could only imagine in horror movies and videogames.
