Thursday is GURPSDay, and I’m getting it on Thursday, as Odin intended,  this week!

Still a bunch of new stuff, and three new blogs on the list, so scroll all the way down (the random order is, well, random, so at least one of the new folks is near the bottom this week). 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:

  • I received the advance copies of The Citadel at Nordvorn and Hall of Judgment 2nd Edition in hand today. They are VERY pretty. If you didn’t get them, well...it’s actually not too late…but in 24 hours, it might be. They arrive in the UK in the next day or two!
  • My new venture, Four Perilous Journeys, surged to over $40,000 and 608 Backers in Kickstarter, both new records for me. Now it’s full speed ahead and I hope to open Backerkit as soon as possible.

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.

Thursday is GURPSDay, and once again it’s on Friday this week! Sorry! I was single-dad’ing it all week, and yesterday was a “work all day, then run around some more, then frantically do parent stuff, then more Kickstarter stuff” kind of day.

Still a bunch of new stuff, and three new blogs on the list, so scroll all the way down (the random order is, well, random, so at least one of the new folks is near the bottom this week).

News for Gaming Ballistic:

  • I received the preview copy of Fantastic Dungeon Grappling in hand today. Wow. Holy wow. You guys are going to love it. If you didn’t get it, well...it’s actually not too late.
  • My new venture, Four Perilous Journeys, for The Fantasy Trip funded last week, and is now in the last 48 hours…and it’s surging. The “Give Me the Things. All of Them” pledge level includes about $200 worth of stuff “sold separately” for $110 . . . and you have to pledge to get that discount. It won’t be available discounted that steeply as a pre-order.

Thursday is GURPSDay, and I’m on time this week! These last three weeks saw a real surge in activity, and there’s a LOT of GURPS here for you, plus THREE new blogs on the list!

Even so: 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:

  • Citadel at Nordvorn, Fantastic Dungeon Grappling, and Hall of Judgment (2nd Edition) are all still on schedule to ship to the UK mid-June. Time to order those bookmarks!
  • My new venture, Four Perilous Journeys, for The Fantasy Trip funded last week, and thanks to a major re-shuffling of campaign goals and rewards – including a FIFTH Perilous Journey – did over $4,000 of funding in ONE DAY. That was over 20% mid-campaign, which is freakin’ huge.

Thursday is GURPSDay, and as seems to be the case with me these days, I’m posting this on a Friday. Life gets busy.

Even so: here’s three weeks of GURPS blog posts, to 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:

  • Citadel at Nordvorn, Fantastic Dungeon Grappling, and Hall of Judgment (2nd Edition) are all approved for printing, and I just wired the money. I expect the books to print and ship to the UK mid-June.
  • My new venture, Four Perilous Journeys, for The Fantasy Trip both funded and had its second-best day of the campaign on May 23; even better than the day after launch. While hard on the nerves, late-accelerating Kickstarters like Nordvorn and 4PJ are fun to watch take off. Expect some really nifty stuff to come in the last two weeks of the campaign.

It’s well past time for a GURPSDay! The move was still disruptive, but we’re coming out the back end of it, I think. Now to sell the old house. That’ll be a load off.

But here you go. I went back three weeks this time, to catch up and get some repeat views and if you missed some.

In news for Gaming Ballistic, Citadel at Nordvorn, Hall of Judgment, and Fantastic Dungeon Grappling files were all sent to the printer. I just spent time reviewing and correcting one pesky error in Nordvorn’s image rendering (fixed), and I have a lingering doubt on image quality on Fantastic Dungeon Grappling that might be nothing, but I want to make sure.

My new venture, Four Perilous Journeys, for The Fantasy Trip is over 80% funded, but it’s in the doldrums so things are slow; plus Decks of Destiny is doing so well it’s got lots of spotlight, so there’s that.

As always, Thursday is GURPSDay! But I missed a day, so here you go. Today marks a slightly new phase in how GURPSDay is presented, to make sure every post gets caught. I’ll be going back THREE weeks each report, rather than one. So posts will get some repeat views and if you miss one script pull, you’ll get two more chances.

In big news for Gaming Ballistic, we’re entering the fulfillment phase of several projects. I can happily report that the international copies of Lost Hall of Tyr (2nd Edition) have finally arrived at the fulfillment center, after many trials and tribulations with the printer. Citadel at Nordvorn goes into PDF delivery mode over the next few days as well, with Fantastic Dungeon Grappling going out today, and Hall of Judgment (2nd Edition) following shortly thereafter. Pretty much all the “already done” PDFs should be headed out to backers by the end of the weekend . . . and I’m doing my level best to have a readable, as complete as possible PDF of Nordvorn Monday or Tuesday.

As always, Thursday is GURPSDay! I’ve got a tonne of stuff going on for me. Citadel just hit page count and fixed a ton of formatting stuff. Art is coming in. And we’re over 90% on backerkit. And in much less than a month, I’ll be getting ready for a new project for The Fantasy Trip. But for now . . . time to celebrate this week in GURPS.

Since the last GURPSDay (sorry I missed one), the Citadel at Nordvorn and DFM2/Boxed Set reprint both ended the primary campaign phase. Both funded solidly: DMF2 at just shy of $55K ($40K goal), while Nordvorn came in at $26K ($13K goal). Both funded and passed at least one stretch goal, and Citadel will be delivered as a sewn, lay-flat binding with 128 pages.

 

A printing decision has been made, art is coming in, and the book is heading towards finalization. I turned in a finished PDF file to SJG to print Fantastic Dungeon Grappling to be inserted into the new reprint of the Boxed Set. So things are moving. In fact, The Citadel at Norðvorn is now accepting pre-orders via Backerkit. (In fact, things are going very well over there.) This should happen for the DFM2 campaign soon as well.

 

Back to GURPSDay

Just to cover the back-story, this GURPSDay goes from mid-March to the present.

This week brings to a close the week of blatantly shilling for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG Kickstarters. Both Citadel at Nordvorn and the Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2 and Boxed Set Reprint campaigns end this weekend, with  DFM2 closing tomorrow (Friday), and Citadel coming to an end on Sunday. Both funded and passed at least one stretch goal, and Citadel – which had fewer to begin with – is on the cusp of passing another.

Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 2/Boxed Set Reprint

The DFM2 campaign is currently past $50,000, and since one can see an additional 20-25% funding in the last two days of a campaign, it’s not over yet to get the $60,000 stretch goal. If you’re a backer, you can also answer Phil Reed’s question “What next?” by commenting on Update 14.

The Citadel at Norðvorn

The Citadel at Nordvorn turned from “gee, that’s worrisome” at the beginning to “Gaming Ballistic’s Best Kickstarter Ever.” It is already the best funded by several thousand dollars, and has 515 backers, which is 10 fewer than Hall of Judgment ended with, and 100 more than Hall of Judgment was three days before it ended. It’s already at 112 pages, Fantastic Dungeon Grappling will be inside the boxed set, and we’re $500 from making it 128 pages. From this point in HoJ to close, it picked up 26% additional funding. If we do that from here, the campaign will hit $24,570 . . . just $430 short of the offset print run. Of course, to do that, we’ll need 144 more backers at the current average pledge level. That last goal is going to be close!

Please jump on!

I was a guest this evening with Matt Finch, talking about my Top 5 DM Tips.

I had a rough week, so I had little time to prepare. That made it pretty easy, in a way: the only thing I could think of was the most important stuff. I took a few notes, and I think we had a great conversation!

You tell me. It’s about an hour.
