Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Sami. The news:

• We released Pyramid #3/115: Technomancer. This is the interesting theme I was hinting at, as it's an experiment: Do people want us to update Third Edition settings in Pyramid? I haven't had time to write about it on the forums, but Steven has.

• I resumed my review of the first draft of an item for the GURPS Powers series.

Once again: I'm moving, so there will be no June 1 update; I hope to be back online for June 8. In the interim, don't expect to see me around online. Those with my phone number or personal email address (which goes to my phone) can still reach me that way. Those doing business with me should use my work email address as my PayPal identity. None of that info appears here because I don't like spammers.

This week is named Corey. The news:

• We released GURPS Magic: Artillery Spells. You can read about that here.

• We also released the Twenty Years of GURPS Bundle. I talk about that here.

• I started my review of the first draft of a GURPS Powers-series item.

On a personal note, I'll be moving house in late May. That means I'm packing right now, and will eventually have several days without Internet and where everything I own is in boxes. And that may mean silence here for a bit – there almost certainly won't be a June 1 update, and June 8 could get caught in the blast. DON'T PANIC! GURPS will continue. I'm the only who needs to panic, because moving is tiring, expensive, and chaotic.

This week is named Karine. The news:

• I reviewed the second batch of articles for the May issue of Pyramid. That's on track for May 24.

• I submitted revisions to and started approving art for my newest GURPS Magic grimoire. With any luck, that should hit May as well.

All the rest was pretty standard ". . . and make sure GURPS runs smoothly."

This week is named Pascale. The news:

• I made significant headway on my review of the third volume of Phil Masters' GURPS Steampunk series. It's taking a while because this is long.

. . . and that was the main focus of my efforts, though of course there were projects to manage, errata to fix, and authors' questions to answer.

This week is named Haim. The news:

• We released Pyramid #3/114: Mind Over Magic. Why yes, it does feature evil clowns, thanks for asking! You can read about that here.

• Geek Gab had Doug Cole and I as guests this week. We discussed many things: Hall of Judgment, the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, and GURPS Dungeon Fantasy.

. . . and the usual, mysterious "other things."

This week is named Meg. The news:

Whoops! For reasons beyond editorial control, we had to bump what was going to be April's issue of Pyramid to May. I spent considerable time reviewing articles for the replacement issue, which may end up running a week late.

• Bill Stoddard submitted the first draft of a new GURPS High-Tech-series item.

. . . and then there was all the rest, which included monitoring peer reviews, getting stuck projects unstuck, advising writers on proposals, and even interacting with third-party interests.

This week is named Kaer. The news:

• We released GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Setting: Caverntown. You can read about that here.

• I reviewed the first batch of articles for the April issue of Pyramid, which has a theme that should please longtime GURPS fans.

• The GURPS Magic-series item I wrote back in October has entered peer review.

• Steven and I reviewed yet more proposals for future GURPS supplements.

This was not an April Fools' Day joke.

This week is named Laure. The news:

• My newest GURPS Dungeon Fantasy item is now through all the hoops and slated for release in the very near future.

• I continue to review the first draft of the third volume in Phil Masters' GURPS Steampunk series.

• I updated the GURPS News.

But most of my work involved dealing with seven other projects, none of which I'm going to name right now. It was quite a week!
