November 30, 2006: Playtest Call: GURPS Supers (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=November&y=2006&d=30)

GURPS Supers is a genre source book for GURPS Fourth Edition written by William Stoddard, scheduled to appear soon as a PDF at e23.</p>

The GURPS Supers playtest will be a closed mailing list playtest. Participation in the playtest does not guarantee credit in the published book, and is limited to people with valid Pyramid (http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/) subscriptions. (You can purchase a Pyramid subscription directly from e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com/).) A sizable but still limited number of playtesters will be chosen to participate based on a variety of criteria to represent the diverse GURPS player base; previous playtest experience and genre knowledge are valued, but a portion of spots will be assigned at random to allow new but genuinely interested people to enter the pool. The playtest is expected to run until January 1.</p>

Some simple rules and posting guidelines, based on the usual playtest rules here:</p>
