April 21, 2017: A Busy Day At The Office

Today was especially packed, with good progress on four different game lines .*.*.

GURPS &ndash; We can see the light at the end of the tunnel on the Dungeon Fantasy prepress work. It might get to print next week, if all goes well, which would give it a shot at appearing at Gen Con.

Ogre &ndash; Today, we saw Ben's first paints of the new plastic Ogres, and they are crisp and beautiful. They also taught us more about "proof-checking" molded plastic, which will pay off down the line on other Ogre minis sets, on Car Wars, and who knows what else? And we saw test shots of the plastic Paneuro units. Some of them still need some tweaklets, but overall we are happy!

Munchkin &ndash;*We held the final pre-mortem check for the various parts of Munchkin Shakespeare today, and Production had done such a great job that corrections were quick, so the entire project has gone to press.

Munchkin CCG &ndash;*I played my first games with the current rules and card draft. A good time was had. We may need to either buff the Ranger deck or nerf the Warrior a bit, but all the buzzing, whirring collectible-card-game parts fit together and delivered some nice, quick little fights with actual tactics on both sides.

And this is why it's fun to be in the game business.

April 20, 2017: What Table Is Large Enough To Hold Discworld?

Have you seen the Discworld Roleplaying Game? Recently we've shown you sneak peeks at the Introduction, some setting material, and a few bits of game mechanics.

When we're talking about the largest hardcover we've ever released, though, there's far more contained therein than can be revealed in even a meaty preview. So today we're looking at everything else, thanks to the Table of Contents. Peruse its three pages to get a sense of the 11-plus chapters of the Discworld Roleplaying Game.

The ultimate guide to gaming within the world of Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld series can be yours! If your friendly local game shop doesn't have it on the shelf .*.*.*perhaps they already sold out! Ask them to order it for you. And when you're looking for some place to share the excitement for this epic game, the GURPS forums are the best place to Disc-uss!

April 19, 2017: More GURPS Books Available Via CreateSpace

In January, we told you about our plans to make more out-of-print GURPS books available again as softcover print-on-demand editions. We continued the experiment in March with three more out-of-print books. And now we're happy to announce that two more titles are available: GURPS Mysteries and GURPS Spaceships.

You can buy these titles via these handy links:

These two black-and-white reprints join GURPS Magic, GURPS Thaumatology, GURPS Ultra-Tech, GURPS High-Tech, GURPS Bio-Tech, and GURPS Infinite Worlds as part of our print-on-demand initiative.

You can find a handy list of all print-on-demand items currently available*-*complete with ready-to-use links*-*at the GURPS On Demand page.

As we noted in January and March, this is a test, so if you've wanted print copies of any of these books at your gaming table, now's a terrific time to get them. (And I can't help but note that GURPS Spaceships works great to amp up both sides of the conflict in a*GURPS Mars Attacks game .*.*.)

Discworld Roleplaying Game isn't just a great sourcebook on Sir Terry Pratchett's beloved universe (although it is that, as we showed recently). As its title implies, it's also a roleplaying game*.*.*. and a game needs rules!

Today's PDF preview presents a few of the "crunchier" parts of the Discworld Roleplaying Game. You'll get insight into playing a supernatural personification (not that uncommon on the Disc!), the mechanics of the magic system, and a couple of oddball enchanted items.

The*Discworld Roleplaying Game*is built on an award-winning rules foundation. Whether you're new to*GURPS, or to roleplaying in general, or looking for a stand-alone product that's*fully compatible*with the vast*GURPS*library, you can be confident that it's right for your campaign!

March 26, 2017: Dungeon Diving With LEGO

We've demonstrated our love for brick-built gaming in the past, most notably with Munchkin Bricks and Guy Himber's brick-built Munchkin board. LEGO themselves are no stranger to gaming, with their own line of games released a few years ago. But the thing that recently caught my eye wasn't a regular set; it's a submission from their LEGO Ideas program. (We're no strangers to the program; Steve even wrote about the Ogre LEGO Ideas set a couple of years back!) So I wanted to share the Dungeon Builder project.

Fans of roleplaying games (like GURPS) know the dream of having fully realized locations and maps. Many an evening has been spent on detailed paper maps, miniatures, and dice .*.*. and we wouldn't have it any other way. But for those of us who want more of a 3-D feel, Quest Builder scratches that itch. The creator shows a variety of rooms with different themes, plus assorted monsters, that could represent a campaign in many fantasy RPG environments (Dungeon Fantasy, perhaps?). The rooms are modular and can create limitless combinations. It's actually reminiscent in style to our own Guy's Munchkin board, with its customized and ever-changing rooms.*

The project has already reached the necessary support to move to the review stage, but even if it doesn't end up on store shelves, it's a cool idea that may inspire some builders out there to make their own brick-dungeons!*
