Another week in the life of GURPS

current mood: working

This week is named "Persephone," in honor of the season. As for GURPS . . .

• We released Pyramid #3/17: Modern Exploration. For the curious, we're using "modern" in the sense of "GURPS TL5+" and "exploration" in the sense of poking around things best left unpoked . . . like, say, undead mummies and creepy WWII programs.

• I turned over my comments on GURPS Tactical Shooting to Hans-Christian Vortisch. This one is going to be a lot bigger than GURPS Gun Fu, and is as much a supplement to GURPS High-Tech as it is the second part of "GURPS Martial Arts for guns."

• Further progress happened on the latest works by Bill Stoddard (whswhs) and Peter Dell'Orto (peterdellorto), which concern cities and ninjas, respectively.

• I'm reluctant to reveal things in the planning stages, but I can confirm that the wheel turned another few degrees on GURPS Bestiary this week. It isn't just parked.

My old friend trinopus once gave out winter holiday cards in a vivid purple bearing the words "Persephone is the reason for the season." I thought that was a great conceit. I still think so, even though chorale's friend amedia, a professor of philosophy and classics, says that it's a mistranslation: the English put the season of Demeter's wrath in the winter months, but the ancient Greeks, living in a Mediterranean climate, put it in the summer months, when the rain stopped and everything died back—the English just mistranslated them. Of course, for me here in southern California the original Greek version better fits my personal experience. But then, you live in a place that has real winters. . . .

GURPS Tactical Shooting

I am really looking forward to GURPS Tactical Shooting and it is a pleasant surprise that it will be longer than GUN FU (which was already pretty long)


Is there any chance that it will have an Inspirational Fiction Appendix too?

Oh, I'm pretty sure it will. :)

My GM is drooling with excitement over Tactical Shooting. I expect this will kick it up another notch.
