December 28, 2006: Campaigns Is On The Boat (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=December&y=2006&d=28)

The reprint of the Campaigns book of the GURPS Basic Set is on the boat . . . and the bill of lading even told us WHICH boat. Well, ship, actually. And thanks to Google Images, we found it. So here's the NYK Phoenix (http://www.ship-world.de/photo-archive/container_03.htm), whose doughty crew, even as we speak, is making its way to our shores from Thailand. With our books, among many, many other things. Cheers!
(As I wrote this, the phrase "ivory, apes, and peacocks" occurred to me, and I realized that no ship bearing that fabled cargo could make it through Customs. And I started to type "alas!" and then realized that anybody collecting ivory or apes nowadays is probably a bad guy. And peacocks no doubt carry bird flu. I do believe that I'm now overanalyzing. But the ship picture is neat.)
