In August 2021 we resurrected the December 2014 Dungeon World Bundle, featuring third-party supplements and adventures for the bestselling Apocalypse Engine fantasy RPG Dungeon World. Transplanting Apocalypse World to fantasy, Dungeon World brings indie ideas to traditional dungeon crawls. Because it’s published under an open license, many indie designers have published their own DW supplements. This offer — first of the three DW bundles we’ve presented to date — brought back some of the best work from Johnstone Metzger at Chthonstone Games (formerly Red Box Vancouver) and Jason Lutes at Lampblack & Brimstone.
All these supplements and adventures require the Dungeon World rules. The free Dungeon World System Reference Document with all the rules is widely available; the Dieheart DW resources page lists many links to the SRD.
There were four titles in this revived offer’s Starter Collection (retail value $55) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the science-fantasy campaign supplement Adventures on Dungeon Planet and a trilogy of introductory DW adventures: DW1 Lair of the Unknown, DW2 Island of Fire Mountain, and DW3 Ghostwood Haunts.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got this revival’s entire Bonus Collection with four more titles worth an additional $38, including the rules expansions Class Warfare and Funnel World, the monster manual Terrors of the Ancient World, and the setting sourcebook Servants of the Cinder Queen (retail $4).
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) goes to this offer’s pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.
