Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Roseline. The news:

• The GURPS Pyramid Scheme Kickstarter is live. There's still time to get on board! If you're unsure, check out this d20 Radio interview about it and this forums post on what I wrote for the final stretch goal.

GURPS Furries, by Bill Stoddard, is through its production review and getting its last few tweaks. Expect that any time now!

Another item from Bill Stoddard – his latest – just went into peer review.

• I started writing a short, horror-themed item that has nothing to do with dungeons or fantasy.

• I reviewed not one but two promising new proposals.

And be sure to check out the Ballistic's Report to see what Gaming Ballistic LLC has been up to this week!

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Tatiana. The news:

• Get ready for the Pyramid Scheme Kickstarter, which goes live on Monday . . . and check out this update while you're at it!

• I'm 80% of the way through my production review of GURPS Furries, by Bill Stoddard. That should show up before too terribly long.

Everything else this week was behind-the-scenes planning.

Another week in the life of GURPS

Happy New Year! This week is named Luce, and it's the first week of 2021. The news:

• Phil announced the Pyramid Scheme Kickstarter!

• We released GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Treasures 4: Mixed Blessings back in December, but it's the first time I've mentioned it in my weekly roundup. You can read about that here.

GURPS Furries, by Bill Stoddard, moved into production.

• The revised draft of Bill Stoddard's latest project arrived and slid into the playtest queue.

• I updated the GURPS News for December.

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Delphine. The news:

• I devoted most of the week to that short writing project I started a few weeks back. It is now edited, laid out, illustrated, and reviewed. It just awaits final checks. You might even see it next week!

• Writers will certainly welcome this news concerning pay rates.

And that's my last roundup for 2020, because I won't be working from Wednesday, December 23, 2020 to January 3, 2021, inclusive. The next update will be on January 8, 2021. Happy holidays to all!

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Poppy. The news:

GURPS Classic: Goblins is now available, for those who were missing it in their collections.

• I finished my review of Bill Stoddard's latest first draft. He intends to revise the manuscript over the holidays, after which it should go to peer review, end up in editing shortly after that, and reach the world sometime in early 2021.

• I found time to pour another few thousand words into the short writing project I started a few weeks back.

• Writers and would-be writers should keep their eyes on this page for some important (positive!) changes we discussed this week.

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Jojo. The news:

• I am 3/4 of the way through my review of Bill Stoddard's latest first draft, which is fascinating and looking strong enough that it might get a peer review instead of a playtest, meaning it will reach you sooner rather than later.

• I updated the GURPS News for November.

There were quite a few other things, too, but they're too "behind the scenes" to itemize at this time.

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Molly. The news:

• I spent most of the week reviewing a preliminary PDF of the third and final (for now . . .) Sekrit Projekt.

• Nikki sent me a preliminary PDF of my short GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Encounters volume, which is next up for review.

• Yet another project I reviewed earlier this year has been revised by its authors and placed in the playtesting queue. That makes four.

Also, have you seen the third issue of The Path of Cunning, the world's leading GURPS fanzine? It's up, and it's free!

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Bryce. The news:

• I finished my production review of the second of three Sekrit Projekts. I still have no clues for you!

. . . and that was the focus of everything I can talk about even a little. Behind the scenes, I also dealt with a few unnamed supplements and potentially cool initiatives.

Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Carine. The news:

• I finished my production review of the Sekrit Projekt I mentioned last week. Two similar reviews are likely to come my way next week. No clues yet!

• My short GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Encounters volume is now in production.

GURPS Furries officially moved into editing.

• I made small updates to the Warehouse 23 Wish List for GURPS and fairly important ones to Writing for Warehouse 23 (note the modifications to the size of the required writing sample, range of word counts, and pay rates).
