Hunter: The Vigil – Chronicles of Darkness monster-hunting

Monday 23 January 2017
In January 2017 we presented the Hunter: The Vigil Bundle, featuring White Wolf’s Storytelling game from the Chronicles of Darkness, Hunter: The Vigil. Fans of Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, and other monster-hunting tales can rejoice: No longer need ordinary humans be swept up in the machinations of the unknown. Hunter lets you take up the torch and fight — often desperately — against the darkness. This bargain-priced offer collected almost the entire Hunter line masterminded by gifted editor Chuck Wendig, now an acclaimed novelist (Blackbirds, Under the Empyrean Sky, and the Star Wars Aftermath trilogy).

There were five titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $39.50), including the complete Hunter: The Vigil corebook (retail price $20), the organizations book Compacts and Conspiracies (retail $9), the Block by Bloody Block campaign framework (retail $9), and Razorkids from the Collection of Horrors (retail $1.50). As a convenience to customers who don’t have the World of Darkness rulebook, we also included the 66-page adventure Nightmare at Hill Manor, released for Free RPG Day 2011, with all the rules you need to play Hunter: The Vigil.

Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles (worth an additional $106), including Chronicles sourcebooks about hunting vampires (Night Stalkers, retail $20), werewolves and spirits (Spirit Slayers, retail $19), mages (Witch Finders, retail $20), and just about every other supernatural creature (Mortal Remains Revised, retail $17). After launch we added Keepers (retail $5), a collection of five ready-made hunter player characters to jump-start your chronicle; Bad Night at Blackmoon Farm (retail $7), Chuck Wendig’s story kit (in White Wolf’s Storytelling Adventure System format) that tells of a cell of hunters that have grown into a cult; and Armory (retail $18), the comprehensive weapons sourcebook for the entire Chronicles of Darkness line.

That’s a US$145.50 retail value, enough to buy a lot of sharpened stakes and ammo from Task Force: VALKYRIE’s Advanced Armory. Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s designated charity, the RPG Creators Relief Fund. The RCRF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization founded to provide financial assistance to tabletop roleplaying game creators suffering hardship due to medical emergencies, natural disasters, and other catastrophic situations.
