GURPS Day Summary Dec 2 – Dec 8, 2016

Thursday is GURPSDay, and once again, GURPSDay comes to you from Thailand, where it’s currently about 11am on Friday morning. And also once again, we owe today’s post to my GMPC (or Heinlein character) Wife – martial arts instructor, PhD in Environmental Engineering, expert trumpet player, and ridiculously attractive redhead. And she can weld plumbing too.

Below you can find the blog activity from the last seven days.

Over the last week as of 10:30pm there have been over 60 GURPS-related posts from our list of 73 blogs that have popped up on the radar screen.

SJG is still running a 40% off sale on Warehouse 23 (some of the blogs mention this), and have seemingly embraced Print-on-Demand to bring back selected books in hardcover. This is good, but it’s also an experiment – if successful, we get more. If not, probably not.

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.

  1. For the record, “She’s like a GMPC” seems to me just about the best, most amusing (and flattering) gamer compliment I’ve ever heard. Wish I’d thought of it!
