GURPSDay! July 12 to Aug 8, 2019

Today is once again GURPSDay, and here’s the last four weeks of posts! I’m starting to get a bit more content on the actual blog front; this is always improved with more actual game play, and I hope to return to that in the near future, once the 4PJ Kickstarter winds down fully. More on that in a bit.

Scroll all the way down (the random order is, well, random). Catch up and get some repeat views and if you missed some. They’re in reverse chronological order, so if you’re up-to-date, just skim off the top!

News for Gaming Ballistic:

  • The first edition of Hall of Judgment hardcover is on sale for 50% off at both the Gaming Ballistic store and Warehouse 23. Pick it up for $12.50.
  • The Citadel at Nordvorn, Hall of Judgment 2nd Edition, and Fantastic Dungeon Grappling print books have arrived at Studio 2 in TN and I am working with them to get the shipping labels worked out.
    • If you ordered a physical copy of Dungeon Grappling, I’m out of those and have ordered more. I will ship you that separately when I get them, at my expense. There are 14 people in this category.
    • If you ordered a physical copy of Lost Hall of Tyr (Second Edition), Studio 2 is out of those because the USPS lost a box of 20 books. I have re-sent 40 which should arrive in 5-7 days. This may or may not impact delivery schedule. There are 11 people in this category.
    • For nearly everyone else, I expect books to start flowing out next week, and thus final completion will be Aug 19 through Aug 30. If you don’t have your stuff by September 1, contact me immediately.
  • Art is complete for all four primary adventures for 4PJ and three of the four books are under review with SJG. I have final changes for Curse of the Pirate King that need to be made, mostly typos. I have the final editing pass for Vampire Hunter Belladonna in place, the book is laid out, and all art has been commissioned. Once I get the manuscripts finished (next few days) I can and will turn to the card decks (black and white) and token sheets (color) and the PDFs of each. I’ve got some stock art to purchase, but really, playing with photoshop and InDesign are fun for me, so this should go fairly quickly. The hardest part will be picking which NPCs/Monsters to make cards out of: 12 or 13 per adventure!
  • I made my first substantial retail sale! Source Comics and Games in the Twin Cities bought six each of everything I had stock to deliver, and we finally worked out the Invoicing. I wanted to tie it to WooCommerce, but my plugins are borked up. So I just used PayPal and that went in flawlessly. The eCommerce end of things on my website could use some real help.

GURPSDay is in its sixth – 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.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.
