It's been a while since I visited this forum, but I figured I should wander by to make sure everyone knows this bit of news.

There is a Kickstarter in progress (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847271320/dungeon-fantasy-roleplaying-game-powered-by-gurps/) for the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game (http://www.sjgames.com/dungeonfantasy/). This is based on GURPS Dungeon Fantasy (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/dungeonfantasy/), the series of old school dungeon crawl supplements for GURPS. But unlike the original, this is a standalone boxed set, using streamlined rules written with beginners in mind. The Kickstarter ends Sept. 30th.

I don't have access to any sales figures, but GURPS Dungeon Fantasy seems to be the leading line of supplements for GURPS. The Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game takes what we love about GURPS Dungeon Fantasy, and makes it easy to get a campaign going with a minimum of preparation, and no prior knowledge of GURPS. It also improves on the original, introducing refined rules based on years of player feedback. So this has something to offer anyone from a beginner at tabletop roleplaying to a grizzled GURPS veteran.

As one of the aforementioned GURPS veterans, I find this exciting. It will make it easier than ever to introduce new people to my favorite game system, without scaring them with the huge GURPS Basic Set, or making them flip back and forth between books to make their characters. And by supporting this Kickstarter, we can show Steve Jackson Games that we want more support for GURPS.
