It’s another GURPSDay, and here’s the last few weeks of posts! This post has been updated to go through Nov 8. 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!
We got a great new blog this week: Dark Journeys, by GURPS Author, Historian, and friend of mine Shawn Fisher. It’s a near-guaranteed to be a good read.
News for Gaming Ballistic:
- The Nordlond Sagas kickstarter keeps plugging away in production. Hand of Asgard has all its art. I’ve seen all the rough colors for Nordlondr Folk. Making editing progress on Forest’s End, but slower than I’d like. Real Life (trying to sell a house, and it’s not going well) keeps kicking me.
- Four Perilous Journeys made landfall on Nov 1 in the USA, and should be ready to start shipping out by the end of the week!
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.
