Maelstrom on the Bundle of Holding

Post by PaulB » Tue Sep 26, 2017 6:21 am

The 1984 Puffin Books tabletop roleplaying game now published by ARION GAMES... MAELSTROM!

Classic percentile-based game system of Tudor/Domesday/Gothic supernatural investigation and chaotic magick

If you have ever wondered what Maelstrom is all about or hankered after a simple system for common folk facing a world of preternatural terrors against historical backdrops (and who hasn't) then go no further...

Bundle of Holding

And if you're still not sure what it's all about, I dropped a fairly detailed overview of the classic game on my website boreders for everyone to clue up on.

It's worth noting that the latest version of Maelstrom is Maestrom Gothic (set in the Victorian age) and this is the first release of that game!

I had the original MAELSTROM game! The setting resembled 16th-century Europe, where violence was easily offered but the Renaissance could break out at any moment!

I went and garbed the bundle. Very impressed with the game.
I do hope Bundle of Holding fixes the DTrpg glitch they are having. Bundle items didn't show on DTrpg and Allen from Bundle said it is a glitch as he tried to add the items to my DTrpg account couldn't add the items to DTrpg currently and it was a know bug being worked on.

Even though I already had almost all of the PDFs for the original Maelstrom I got the fabulous deal.
Right now I'm reading Maelstrom Gothic ... and I'm missing a blank character sheet. Would you please ... upload

Glad you like!

I have set up a Googledrive folder to share various files, and have added the MG Character Sheet there:
