Maybe the I’m the only one around these parts that might be interested in this. I’m posting it anyway, just ‘cuz… Pulp! RPGs! In a bundle! Sadly this isn’t a PC RPG Bundle*. But if you are a dice and paper gamer, this is something pretty cool nonetheless! Four dice & paper RPGs (PDF versions) based on pulp-era fiction! Two-fisted heroes, femme fatales, gumshoe detectives, rocket ships, robots, and stuff like that.
It sounds fun. I have these, but I haven’t played them. I’m too busy playing Pathfinder every weekend! But I’ll have to carve out an opportunity some three-day weekend or something.
This bundle includes:
Two-Fisted Tales RPG (Revised) – inspired by pulp adventure stories.
Exiled in Eris – Inspired by pulp science fiction and fantasy: Planetary romance, sword & sorcery, and the wild west.
Bloodshadows: Fantasy-Noir RPG (Third Edition) – Pulp Adventures meets dark fantasy and noir. Spellslinging detectives!
Mean Streets RPG (Expanded Edition) – inspired by 1940s-era film noir.
If you are interested, the bundle is available at DriveThruRPG:
If you are only interested in one or two, the bundle listing has links to the individual games. It’s not a huge bundle discount, but it’s something.
(* The closest CRPGs inspired by pulps that I can think might be anything Conan or Cthulhu – although those may borrow the names and creatures, but might not have the feel of the pulps that they are based on. Also, there are the two spin-off Ultima adventures available on GOG.COM – for free! – Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire, and Ultima Worlds of Adventure 2: Martian Dreams).
