February 8, 2010: The Future Was Cool Yesterday (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=February&y=2010&d=8)



http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/transhuman/img/cover_sm.jpg (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-6708) I've mentioned once or twice in these little advertising tirades of mine that we all live in the future now. And while I do enjoy my personal hovercraft and my regular Pan Am flights to the moon, I feel that it's important to take a step back and remember the good things of days gone past.</p>

Like Transhuman Space Classic (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-6708), for example. See how it has the word "classic" in the title? That means its old and really good. It's also about the future, which dovetails nicely with my theme. If you're unfamiliar with it, Transhuman Space is basically what would happen if you took Future Shock, cranked it up to 11, and made an RPG out of it. Awesome, right? Well, now it's available as a PDF!</p>

And it's not alone. It has a little friend titled Transhuman Space: Teralogos News - 2100, Fourth Quarter (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-6707). It's a collection of news articles that give you a ground's eye view of the world. It's also free, and bereft of system-dependent content, so you don't even have to use it with Transhuman Space! (But, uh, we would still really appreciate it if you bought Transhuman Space Classic anyway. Just sayin'.)</p>
