September 13, 2011: Offworld Tours, Otherworld Terrors (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=September&y=2011&d=13)



http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/worldsofhorror/img/cover_sm.jpg (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1673) For several years the United States has struggled with housing prices. A South Florida home purchased for $300,000 in 2007 may now be worth $150,000 today. Houses can be found in Detroit for $100 or less. And within the pages of GURPS Infinite Worlds: Worlds of Horror (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1673), you&#39;ll get six alternate Earths for less than six dollars.</p>

All six of these worlds are presented by fan-favorite author Kenneth Hite, mastermind of GURPS Infinite Worlds (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/infiniteworlds/) and GURPS Horror (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/horror/) for GURPS Fourth Edition (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/). Each timeline has an alternate history, information on outworld operations, captivating campaign ideas, and a smattering of GURPS details.</p>

Admittedly, for those hoping to take advantage of this remarkable real-estate deal, there may some complications that keep you from moving in immediately: the zombie infestation of Gotha-Z, the vampire lords of Duzakh, the alchemically augmented aristocracy of Gothic-2 . . . typical problems that any prospective property-purchasers might encounter. However, for fans of alternate-historical gaming or unsettling settings, these minor setbacks shouldn&#39;t detract from a major opportunity with GURPS Infinite Worlds: Worlds of Horror (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1673). Just remember that -- on some Earth, somewhere -- the Chinese character for "opportunity" is the same as the one for "torn apart by inhuman horrors."</p>
