December 8, 2008: Abydos And More! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=December&y=2008&d=8)

Last week was a busy one for e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com), with not one, not two, but three new releases!</p>

First up, David Pulver (Spaceships (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/spaceships/), Ultra-Tech (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/ultra-tech/)) has given us a look into the island of necromancers known as Abydos, in&#160;GURPS Banestorm: Abydos (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1680). Although it's set on Yrth (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/banestorm/), the city is self-contained enough to fit into a wide variety of fantasy settings. Use it as a location to visit, as a source of enemies (or Patrons!), or even as a home base for the PCs. (Longtime playtesters will remember an "Abydos" manuscript from years and years ago. Yes, this is that Abydos (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG37-1680).)</p>

Next, Cardboard Heroes: Fantasy Set 11 -- More Player Characters (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-2111) features 40 printable figures of Vikings, nobles, clerics, halflings, gnomes, dwarves, and more! These can be heroes for the players, villains for the GM, or both!&#160;You can&#160;even print out a horde to cover your living room floor, and stomp through them like Godzilla.</p>

Finally, GURPS Cliffhangers (http://e23.sjgames.com/item.html?id=SJG30-6027) returns to availability in digital form. Two-fisted heroes, shadowy criminal masterminds, and exotic locales can all be found in this guide to the pulp era.</p>
