December 7 marks Pearl Harbor Day in the USA, the famed “day that will live in infamy.” I have had the privilege to visit Pearl Harbor twice, and it was sobering and sad and . . . too many things. But you should go if you can. The first time I was there, the narrator on the tour was actually there, and had lived through it. That opportunity is vanishing quickly.
And yet! Thursday is GURPSDay! Read ’em all, check ’em out, and if you spot a GURPS blog in the wild, ping them and let them know they too can be on the list, so long as they, as Emmet would say, “follow the instructions.”
In personal Gaming Ballistic News: Two items.
- If you liked Hall of Judgment, and either also play or have friends that play Fifth Edition, I have launched the Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition) Kickstarter. This ports Hall of Judgment over to my 5e-derived Dragon Heresy RPG, and upgrades the maps. That part funded on Day 2, and those maps will be inserted into HoJ as well. But I’m trying to get to first the $3,500 level (print quality equal to HoJ), and then the $6,000 level that gets an offset print run (softcover, lay-flat binding, even better paper than HoJ). If you can, pledge. If you can’t, reshare. Show your D&D-playing friends, your FLGS, etc. The more I can get product out there, the better stuff I can do for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG, as rising sales lift all boats.
- All of my RPG products are on sale until January 2. Whether as a gift, or for yourself, check ’em out.
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.
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.
