November 17, 2009: This Book Is Boring (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=November&y=2009&d=17)

Get it? See, because it's called GURPS Spaceships 6: Mining and Industrial Spacecraft (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-0125). It's . . . it's a mining pun. Heh? Well, it was funny in my head, at any rate. (Hm. Unfortunate turn of phrase there.)</p>

So this book is all about breakin' and makin'. It's about going out into that inky nothingness and exploiting the ever-loving heck out of its mineral resources. Sure, it's not as glamorous as commanding a deep-space exploration vessel or piloting a snub fighter down the trench of a battlestation. On the other hand, nobody will be shooting at you. Always a plus, that.</p>

Of course, that's not to say that nothing interesting will happen. Improperly secure one drive plate and you might just end up as the god of a race of highly evolved cat-people. Cool, huh? Or you might play pool with planets! That's pretty cool, too. Or you might get impregnated by an alternate-universe version of yourself! That would be&#160; . . . hm, that'd just be kinda weird.</p>
