GURPSDay Summary Dec 29 – Jan 4, 2018

Welcome to the first GURPSDay of 2018, and the fourth year – GURPSDay started in February 2013, only a year after I started Gaming Ballistic.

We’re currently drawing content from 96 blogs. We’re still picking up some feed issues with them, but once they’re solved, we’re that much closer to having 100 GURPS blogs. GURPS Special Ops, by Steve Jolly, joined us this week.

We’ve got some interesting things coming in 2018. GURPSDay is often reshared and followed by some of the nice folks at Steve Jackson Games, and I made a suggestion to Kromm and Steven that has drawn some interest. One way or another, look to see the return of the monthly Blog Challenge – such as the Melee Academy feature. In particular, common challenges posed using nothing but the pre-gens from the DFRPG and the rules from the boxed set with no house rules or additions brought in. The Dungeon Fantasy RPG is targeted at new players, and so even seemingly old topics (how do I best leverage attacks from the rear hex? How do I fight a dragon? How do we fight a mob of weak creatures?) are fresh again.

We still need your help. And if you just started a GURPS blog – and I know that some of you have – email me and get on the list! With the advent of the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, Powered by GURPS, there’s even more reason to write.

How? Two action items: post more, recruit more. It’s really that simple. More posters is more posts, and more interest in GURPS.

Below you can find the blog activity for the last week. There’s a whole lotta awesome GURPS going on. Read all the posts.

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. Take special note of the RSS Settings Fix if you’re on WordPress.
