Humble Bundle has more RPG bundles going on simultaneously than I can remember them ever doing. I'm not complaining but it seems a bit strange to see so many of them at once.

I know I've covered four bundles in the same week before, but I'm pretty sure at least one of them was a video game bundle that just included one or more games based off of TTRPGs...
