Welcome to GURPSDay 2018, and the fourth year – GURPSDay started in February 2013, only a year after I started Gaming Ballistic. That makes GURPSDay 5 years old this month! Today I’m back from Thailand and while jet-lagged a bit, I’m still mostly functional. I have, on the other hand, been forgetting what the heck day it is all day long. It did not helpeth me that my work computer was still set 13 hours ahead, so I was confusing the heck out of folks – and myself – talking about “tomorrow a Saturday dinner,” since tomorrow is in fact Friday. Shudder.
For that reason, I did include two weeks in today’s script pull, just to ensure we time-travel back to my first day in Korat (Nakhon Ratchasima).
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. Picked up another one today: Michael Thompson’s Traveller Adventures. Welcome!
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.
