November 17, 2008: Giants (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=November&y=2008&d=17)



Last week, the digital shelves of e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com) saw not one, but two giant-sized releases.</p>

First, Fantasy Set 8 - Giants (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2108) from the Cardboard Heroes (http://www.sjgames.com/heroes/) series features . . . you guessed it: giants! 15 towering humanoids to fee your foe fum, if you will.</p>

Second, perhaps not a literal giant, but certainly one that dominates its particular niche of our hobby: GURPS Classic: Traveller (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-6600). This is the book that launched the GURPS Traveller (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/traveller/) line for GURPS Third Edition (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/Basic/3e/). In addition to more mechanics than you can shake a stick at, these 179 pages contain one of the best primers on the Traveller history and mythology ever published. Whether you're a Traveller grognard or just a space opera junkie, this book is a must have.</p>

Ive been playing CT for years, off and on. So ive been meaning to try out GURPS CT, GURPS Traveller, and GURPS 3rd edition. I was hoping to pick up said games by xmas, but finances are tight-got alot of family and all.

Anyone want to share their experiences with me regarding listed systems. I have played GURPS before(around their initial release-yeah, long time ago), and have been inclined to revisit said system.
