Thursday is GURPSDay and September has come and gone. Hey, I even turned 46 this past Monday! (If you want to get me a present, throw a few bucks at my Kickstarter. If enough GURPS folks throw in, maybe some nice things can happen).

Also: Pretty sure exactly two years ago today I blew myself up, fracturing my heel into six pieces and in the process launching myself six to eight feet into my back yard.

Fortunately, while I failed my IQ roll, I did make my HT roll.

So: GURPSDay!

Welcome to the second year of GURPSDay, and here’s the pull for this week.

We’re currently drawing content from 89 blogs. Only 11 more to go until we’re pulling from 100! But we’ll need your help. And if you just started a GURPS blog – and I know that some of you have – email me and get on the list!

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.

Thursday is GURPSDay and September nearly past. We’re still seeing more and more of the Dungeon Fantasy RPG is arriving at folks’ homes if they’re in the USA, with pictures, gushing, and reviews proliferating. Some anecdotes for store-bought Kickstarter copies departing the shelves at a good clip.

Thursday is GURPSDay and we’re post-Con, but pre- exciting news about confirmations that the DFRPG is nearly in the USA, and confirmed that it’s on schedule for going out in October. Continue to see good reviews come in for the game, too. Can you believe it’s nearly September?

I was invited by Jasyn Jones and John McGlynn to join them on their Geek Gab podcast to talk about Dungeon Grappling, after I posted my GenCon reports about the playtest.

Well, yeah, we covered grappling. But we also covered GURPS, the DFRPG, game design principles, and many other things, including HEMA and how useful first-hand research can be if you can do it. Roland Warzecha’s Dimicator videos got honorable mention. We talked a lot of 5e, some Pathfinder, a bit of Fate, and WEG’s d6 and GUMSHOE got a nod. I talked quite a bit about Dragon Heresy.

I had a great time, and we spoke for about 75 minutes. I talk kinda fast, but I don’t think I was incoherent, so yay.

Anyway: enjoy!

Thursday is GURPSDay – but GenCon 50 messed up my schedule, so while this week covers the usual dates (Aug 18 through Aug 24), you will see some repeated posts from last time, which went through the 21st. That’s OK. There’s been a lot of post-GenCon content; that many gamers in one spot fired folks up.

Saturday was packed for me. I was busy from 9am until 10:30pm with good important stuff. Sunday, the last day of the con, was basically open for me – a free day – until the show closed, at which point I was to help tear down the booth.

The Big Day

Well, I awoke realizing that I’d left my battle-mat in the booth. No big, assuming it was there. I beat feet over before, it turned out, that the convention hall opened, which was 9am. So I went over to my gaming room, set up early, then chatted with some of the IGDN members there. I described my grappling system to Sarah at the booth, and another member sat down, and “oohed” and “aahhed” over my book, which was on the table. She opened it up and started avidly reading. I just grabbed a pen, signed it, and made a gift of it to her. If she’s that enthusiastic, she can have one! Continue reading “GenCon: The Big, The Free, and The Teardown”
