Adventurer! The Masters of Ceremonies return with the Apocalypse Engine Bundle +3, our third collection of tabletop roleplaying games Powered by the Apocalypse -- that is, based on Vincent Baker's landmark indie RPG Apocalypse World. In the nine months since our last Apocalypse offer, many new PbtA games have debuted. This new +3 collection presents a wide sampling, including Monsterhearts 2, Bedlam Hall, and many titles from Magpie Games. Pick a playbook, try your Moves, roll 2D6, and play to find out what happens.

For just US$7.95 you get all five games in our Starter Collection (retail value $41) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

  • Bluebeard's Bride (retail price $14): The dark fairy tale inspired this adults-only investigatory RPG of feminine horror in the vein of Crimson Peak, American Horror Story, and The Company of Wolves.
  • Urban Shadows (retail $12): Vampires, wizards, and their hunters vie for political control of a modern-day city. [Previously presented in our November 2015 Indie Cornucopia +3.]
  • Three of Magpie's "ashcan editions" (full-length previews, retail $5 each): The Ward (TV medical drama), Pasión de las Pasiones (Latino soap opera), and Velvet Glove (1970s girl gangs).

And if you pay more than the threshold price of $18.55, you'll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $59:

  • Bluebeard's Bride: Book of Rooms (retail $14) and Urban Shadows: Dark Streets (retail $10): Two new expansions for the games in the Starter Collection.
  • Monsterhearts 2 (retail $10): Avery Alder's updated take on teenage monsters with messy lives.
  • Bedlam Hall (retail $10): Monkeyfun Studios' depressing RPG about terrible people in cutthroat service to a demented family in a foreboding mansion.
  • Undying (retail $15): Vampires as apex predators, scheming across vast timespans to control a rich world of sex, violence, and horror. [Previously in our October 2016 Bundle of Nerves +4.]

And don't miss our Dungeon World Bundle +3 offer now in progress. Dungeon World is the bestselling fantasy RPG Powered by the Apocalypse.
