GURPSDay! Aug 23 to Sept 12, 2019

It’s another GURPSDay, and here’s the last few weeks of posts! The Dungeon Fantasy Magic Items 2 Kickstarter came and went, and was super-close – like less than $950 – from getting to its singular stretch goal of 64 pages instead of 48. All may not be lost, however, and the Backerkit phase will start when SJG is ready.

The other big news is that if you want more Dungeon Fantasy RPG, well, you can have it. My 8th Kickstarter, Norðvorn Sagas, launched this past Tuesday. It had the strongest first day of any Kickstarter I’ve yet launched, even better by a few bucks than Four Perilous Journeys. It’s currently sitting just shy of 80% funding, and is roughly halfway to the “300 physical orders” first stretch goal. Given the trajectory of Kickstarters, we’re in a good position to threaten the $29K stretch goal as well, but of course we need help.

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:

  • My second print proof on Dungeon Grappling has still not arrived, despite being told it was on the way nine days ago. I’m starting to think I need a new PoD company. That’s a real shame..
  • I ordered all physical goods for Four Perilous Journeys except for the international card decks and counter tiles. There are some lingering questions on whether Kickstarter rewards not available through retail must be certified/marked with CE Mark. I don’t THINK so, but I need to chat with folks.
  • I have not yet heard back from my printer on whether the Four Perilous Journeys files have been accepted. This is odd, and I’m also waiting for some quotes from them, so I will keep at it. Weird week for communication.
  • I announced the approval of the Nordlond Enemies Book (tentatively titled Norðlondr Óvinabókin) as my next approved Dungeon Fantasy RPG project. It’s still in the future, but if the current KS takes off and we hit somewhere around the $75,000 level (yes, this is ‘irrationally exuberant given that level of funding usually requires a first-two-day total on the order of $20-25K) I can self-fund it.

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.
