It’s another GURPSDay, and here’s the last few weeks of posts! The big news right now in the GURPS-o-Sphere is the Dungeon Fantasy RPG Magic Items 2 “Quickstarter.” This four day campaign funded quickly, and is going to end Friday, 5:30pm Central Time. Right now it’s past $10K, and so is less than $5,000 (about 215 people) away from the only stretch goal, which is to push the book from 48 to 64 pages.
It’s already written, laid out, and art inserted. Get it now at a discounted price (seriously: check the price of DFRPG Monsters 2 on Warehouse 23, compare to its backer-level price during its own Kickstarter, and you’ll see similar discounting. It’s a good deal right now.
In any case, we’re here for GURPSDay, so 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:
- Fulfillment is complete on Citadel at Nordvorn. If you like it, please say something in a public place. A Tweet, a blog post, a review, a Forum post.
- My second print proof on Dungeon Grappling is on its way to me. The entire book was lightened up by 10-15%, which hopefully will restore the details to the artwork. If so, I’ll confirm the 100-copy order, get the 15 or so books I owe folks from various projects under way, and then we’ll be back in stock.
- Ship approval and print approval for Four Perilous Journeys is done for all products. All PDFs have been delivered. I will be ordering the physical goods (counter tiles and card decks) this week.
- I anticipate launching another Dungeon Fantasy RPG Kickstarter on September 10, which should go until October 12. There will be three books in it: two adventures and one short supplement. Look for it, and please spread the word.
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.
