January 21, 2016: Thursday Is GURPS-Day! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/a/2016-01-21)

GURPS fans know that Thursday is new-release day at Warehouse 23 (http://www.warehouse23.com/). We don't release a new digital supplement or Pyramid (http://pyramid.sjgames.com/) issue every week but when we do, it's on Thursday. That has been a tradition for .*.*. well, my records show we were doing it in 2009, which means it's older than that.

But there's another tradition that GURPS fans might not know as much about. Douglas Cole (http://www.warehouse23.com/products?utf8=%E2%9C%93&keywords=&taxons%5B%5D=&search%5Bsearch_contributor%5D=Douglas+H.+Cole&search%5Btaxon_union%5D%5B%5D=&taxons%5B%5D=&taxons%5B%5D=&search%5Bsearch_order%5D=alphaAZ&from_advanced_search=1&commit=Search) has been blogging about RPGs on Gaming Ballistic (http://gamingballistic.blogspot.com/) since December 26, 2012, and he started setting aside Thursday as "GURPS-day" on February 7, 2013 (http://gamingballistic.blogspot.ca/2013/02/gurps-campaigns-common-pitfalls.html). Since then, many other bloggers have started reserving Thursday a.k.a. "GURPS-day," "GURPS Day," "GURPS Thursday," and "Thurpsday" for GURPS content, including (alphabetically!):
