Do it!

OneBookShelf have been incredibly eager to help and the list of games shows how much support there is out there. Some amazing products to grab, not least Jenni's new game, the Kapcon LARP as finished product, a novel from Kiwi company RedBrick, and my own adventure for ICONS.

Do it now!

Would appreciate you sharing this to any other networks that might be interested, too.

Just to say thanks to eveyone who helped make this happen - especially Morgue. The response has been awesome so far - I'm being sent sales information and more than a hundred bundles had been sold when I logged in this morning and more are coming through literally every minute. Great stuff - let's keep it up!

I'm so glad the bundle is going well. Kudos to Dale, Morgue, Gregor, and Gareth for being the linchpins of this endeavour. Even though I'm on the other side of the world, the quake in Christchurch really made me reflect on how important NZ and all the people I know there are to me.

Cheers
Malcolm

Quite apart from the strength of the cause, there's some really good stuff in there - bargain for $20!

Pay day can't come soon enough.

Thanks to those who helped organised this bundle, all the people who contributed games and to all who have contributed to this cause.

From DTRPG:

Hey folks,

Just a quick heads-up that our servers are getting slammed do to the demand for this bundle and the entire site is being affected. If you can hold off downloading everything in the bundle for a few days that would be great.

All of your products will be available on your My Account page anytime you log into the site.

Thanks,

Matt


The total donated is already over US$11,000.

Brilliant stuff! Well done fellas.

Now. I purchased a copy and have a bundle of PDFs and a dislike for reading things on a screen. Has anyone got a good suggestion for getting some of these things printed and bound cheaply?

For pure cheap, try Warehouse Stationary. Its even better if you can do the printing yourself first and just get them to do binding and colour covers.

Otherwise, consider putting the money towards a tablet PC or e-Reader and after the initial cost, you get an almost printed copy like effect for no added cost per PDF Wink

Does your printer do booklet printing? Saves on paper.
