In November 2019, on short notice, we presented the Necropolis 2350 Bundle featuring the grimdark Savage Worlds science fiction horror setting from Triple Ace Games of humanity on the brink of extinction. On the planet Salus — the only habitable world left after the destruction of Earth — knights of the Third Reformation Church and soldiers of the Union of Corporations wage desperate battle against undead invaders known as the Rephaim. The heroes of humanity use advanced weapons and vehicles and can call upon the power of faith. The twisted Rephaim are masters of necromancy who wield vile technology created from living tissue. Humanity’s very existence hangs in the balance. Take the roles of Impalers, Incinerators, Preachers, and Templars in a desperate struggle against oblivion.
We prepared this Necropolis 2350 offer to help Triple Ace’s prolific Creative Director and longtime Bundle of Holding supporter Paul “Wiggy” Wade-Williams, who suffered a debilitating stroke in October 2019. In addition to Necropolis, Wiggy’s popular Savage Worlds settings include Hellfrost, Slipstream, 50 Fathoms, Weird Wars Rome, Daring Tales, League of Adventure, and many more. Triple Ace director Robin Elliott said at the time, “Wiggy had two smaller strokes in the summer and has not been well for several months. He suffered a stroke three weeks ago that has affected his ability to communicate. His current condition is stable, but his language center was hit, and he struggles to complete sentences. He is unable to type, and using a computer is difficult. But we hope with some months of recovery and speech therapy he will be able to get back his typing and writing skills, which are crucial to his work.”
There were four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $49.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the Necropolis 2350 Player’s Guide and Setting Book, six sets of Necropolis Figure Flats, and the Necropolis 2350 GM Screen.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with six more titles worth an additional $64, including the Necropolis 2351-55 Update rules expansion; four Necropolis 2350 character guides (Impaler Handbook, Incinerator Handbook, Preacher Handbook, and Templar Handbook), and the 200-page Necropolis Adventure Compendium.
Ordinarily ten percent of each purchase of a Bundle of Holding offer goes to a charity. In this case we assigned that charity portion to Triple Ace Games, to help Wiggy and his company in a tough time.
