Does anyone know, why Doomstones 5 is not included in the WFRP 1 bundle of holding?

You mean the WFRP 1E Sorcery Bundle of Holding? Technically there never was a Doomstones 5 as such, there was a Doomstones Volume 3, which is effectively the same thing. My guess is that it isn't included because they made the PDFs from the physical collection that they had and it appears that what they had, given what they've provided, are the Flame Publication prints of the campaign, which never had a fifth part. The Hogshead reprint of the campaign had some minor omissions and additions but was essentially the same and combined Doomstones 1 and Doomstones 2 into Doomstones Volume 1, and Doomstones 3 and Doomstones 4 into Doomstones Volume 2, and added Doomstones Volume 3.

Sure, Hogshead released them in pairs. Since I own the original flame versions, I always think of heart of chaos as #5.
Should I offer my copy of part 5 to C7?
Or is there a copyright issue with #5?

I can't see Heart Of Chaos on DriveThruRPG either. I don't think it would hurt to offer them your copy, though from my previous communications with them the process as i understand it means taking it apart so that each individual page can be scanned, so you wouldn't get i back in one piece. Check that though, i might have misremembered or misunderstood. It's also a matter of them allocating staff time to do it, so they might have it and simply not have found the time to turn it into a PDF yet. I do seem to recall they were amenable to popular requests though. I don't know of any reason why there would be a copyright issue with Heart Of Chaos. Most of The Enemy Within campaign they have turned into PDFs is Hogshead.

I assume its simply because C7 haven't released it as a pdf yet. Can't say I'm impressed with Heart of Chaos myself, I could imagine my players throwing a hissyfit at the ending.

BTW I wrote about the original plans to end the campaign here: https://awesomeliesblog.wordpress.com/2 ... doomstone/

There's not much, but there are some alternative ideas.
