GURPSDay Summary Jan 19, 2017 – Jan 25, 2018

Welcome to GURPSDay 2018, and the fourth year – GURPSDay started in February 2013, only a year after I started Gaming Ballistic. Last week, Emily added some error checking to the code, and so I’m confident that all but one of the blogs will pull properly. So yay, progress.

We’re currently drawing content from 95 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.

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.  We’ve even come to an agreement on what form that will take. I will post about it in more detail later today.

One way or another, look to see the return of the monthly Blog Challenge. And another monthly activity whose destination is Pyramid Magazine!

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.

  • Action Point Economy Thoughts (1/25/18) – It’s been a while since I thought much about Action Points from The Last Gasp, but it occurred to me that how AP interact with attack and defense penalties might give a reason to lower those penalties.

    1. Not sure what to tell you about this one – it grabs from whatever RSS feed it’s provided. I’ll ask my script experts about it, but I can’t promise anything.
