GURPSDay Summary Nov 16, 2018 – Nov 22, 2018

Thursday is GURPSDay! And Turkey Day (hereafter called Sweet Potato with brown sugar and roasted marshmallows day, so as to focus on what’s important) for those in the United States. So may your tryptophan comas be pleasant! There’s big news floating around the GURPS-o-Sphere today, as the latest Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game Kickstarter Update 102 contained a preview of three monsters for a notional Dungeon Fantasy RPG Bestiary . . . and a reprint of the boxed set! While details of the project are being held close as usual, Phil Reed and Sean Punch have been active and firm on several points: The book’s scope will be tightly defined. The art is driving the monster inclusions. The boxed set reprint is linked to the Bestiary. The funding goal will (say it like in 300) not be small, not likely be progressive, and the scope of the project will be controlled and defined. Less certain but seemingly also in there was that adding more tokens to a game book is not in the plan.

The GURPS North America Facebook Group has a very active thread on this topic, and there are 77 comments on the kickstarter link itself, plus the “Future of the DFRPG” thread on the forums.

GURPSDay is in its fifth year – GURPSDay started in February 2013,  a year after I started Gaming Ballistic. Things have slowed down a bit, and I’ll be considering how to revitalize this weekly activity. I’d like to see an average of 100 posts here per week – one per blog, ish – so we’ll see what we can do to get creative juiced flowing.

The Dungeon Fantasy RPG, Powered by GURPSIf 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.
