From Bundle of Holding:
Adventurer! The Knights of the Dinner Table have revived our March 2016 HackMaster Bundle featuring Kenzer and Company’s tabletop fantasy roleplaying game HackMaster. It’s one of the most unusual origins in the hobby: Originally a parody introduced in Jolly Blackburn’s long-running gaming comic Knights of the Dinner Table, HackMaster has evolved into a full-fledged, serious (well, semi-serious) FRPG. HackMaster’s lavish “Fifth Edition” has earned respect from Old School gamers everywhere. Once again this revived offer — resurrected alongside our all-new Knights of the Dinner Bundle with the famous comic strip that inspired HackMaster — gives you everything you need for your own HM campaign, including all the core 5E titles, for a terrific bargain price.
For just US$12.95 you get all seven titles in this offer’s Player Collection (retail value $57) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
- HackMaster 5E Player’s Handbook (retail price $40): The complete, current 400-page Fifth Edition rulebook. Includes the free HackMaster Basic introductory rulebook.
- Zealot’s Guide Books 1-2 (total retail $7): These two short supplements present new clerical orders and dozens of spells.
- In the Realm of the Elm Kingand Legacy of the Elm King (retail $5 each): One of the best introductory HM adventures — a search for missing children outside a small village near Frandor’s Keep — along with its free-standing follow-up, a traditional crawl through kobold-infested caverns in the half-wild lands around the village.
- HackMaster Player Resources: As a convenience to our customers, we’ve gathered many free HackMasterdownloads from the Kenzer and Company website — charts and play aids, reference sheets, and more.
And if you pay more than this offer’s threshold price of $28.93, you’ll level up and also get this offer’s entire Gamemaster Collection with four more titles worth an additional $87:
- HackMaster 5E GameMaster’s Guide (retail $40): This 370-page tome has rules, NPCs, treasure tables, and advice for every situation.
- Hacklopedia of Beasts 5E (retail $40): The massive, lavishly produced monster book that launched the HackMaster 5E project.
- Frandor’s Keep (retail $15): A lonely military outpost on the creature-infested borderlands — an ideal sandbox to start an adventuring career.
- HackMaster GM Resources: More free downloads from the Kenzer website — these help the HMGameMaster.
And don’t forget this HackMaster offer’s all-new companion offer, Knights of the Dinner Bundle, a big collection featuring Knights of the Dinner Table, the long-running comic by Jolly R. Blackburn that introduced HackMaster.
