October 23, 2013: The (GURPS) Zombies Are Coming! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2013-10-23)

http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2013/zombiescoverThumb.jpg (http://www.sjgames.com/img/newsq/illq/2013/zombiescover.jpg)You know you love them. The living dead are an enduring myth in our culture, a personification of the collapse of society. Plus, they're just so fun to kill. Now you'll be able to add them to your*GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/)*game, in a fantastic new hardcover supplement! GURPS Zombies (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/zombies/) contains everything you need to chop down zombies by the dozens in your own GURPS game.

A rules-free survey of zombies by fictional and folkloric origin, physical and supernatural type, and dramatic role.
Systematic guidelines for creating custom zombies to surprise your players.
Ready-to-use examples for the zombie-master in a rush: B-movie and fantasy undead, living-but-infected crazies, necromancers' pets, science experiments gone horribly wrong, surgical constructs gone disturbingly right, and many others.
Rules for topics dear to the zombie-lover's heart: horde management, splatter and contagion, cures, and even inventing new kinds of zombies!
Information for those who must confront zombies, including gear recommendations, rules for avoiding infection and simply surviving, and templates for survivors, zombie-hunters, and zombie-makers.
Advice on using all this in any genre. Who says zombies are only for horror?

What more could you ask for? Oh, you want it now? Well, fine then. If you don't want to wait until December 2nd for the hardcover book to come out, you can buy the PDF (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG31-1004) right now! Happy early Halloween.

Warehouse 23 (http://www.warehouse23.com/) News: Storm The Palace!

Rally the townsfolk and take The Palace!

Revolution: The Palace! (https://www.warehouse23.com/item.html?id=SJG1904) adds a new location and up to six can join the bribing, blackmailing, and backstabbing!

This expansion includes everything you need to add more 2 players to Revolution! (http://www.warehouse23.com/item.html?id=SJG1902), six new bidding boards, purple and orange blocks, bidding shields, and score tokens for the fifth and sixth players.* There are also four new characters to bid on. The Viceroy controls the Palace. The Messenger moves your influence cubes from their location to any unoccupied space. The Mayor influences any open space. The Constable rewards a winning bid with a bit of Support and Blackmail.

The new rules can be taught in minutes, and a complete game still takes less than an hour.
