Thursday is GURPSDay. Last week, the Dungeon Fantasy Kickstarter ended, and wound up raising $176,000 through Kickstarter directly, and another $25-30,000 or so through direct W23 Sales. This opened up a couple of adventure modules, “eye in the pyramid” dice in the box, and three additional dedicated Pyramid issues. The “I want it all” level continued to grow in value, I believe surpassing $600.
Below you can find the blog activity from the last seven days.
Over the last week there have been 60 GURPS-related posts from our list of 66 blogs that have popped up on the radar screen as of 8pm. So it’s a great week.
Not every blog posts about GURPS every week, but some are ridiculously prolific! The list is randomized, so different bloggers will be highlighted at the top of the post each week.
As always, if you’re interested in having your blog consolidated here, navigate over to The Instructions Page and drop me a line.

- Aeon Campaign S3E11 – Operation Viking (execution) (10/04/16) – The Aeon B-Team executes Operation Viking. It goes so spectacularly well (thanks perhaps to an inordinate number of critical successes?) that The Commander is suspicious that it’s a trap. We argue about this a lot. We also find some sort of weird funky vampire-looking thing sealed in a cryotube, in addition to the mission objective. Naturally we take both . . . and our plane crashes/gets shot down on exfiltration.
