July 20, 2016: A No-Brainer For GURPS Fans!

Zombies: Can't live with 'em, can't lock yourself indefinitely in a fallout shelter and hope they go away. They're fan-favorite monsters, they're everywhere in popular culture, and now they've invaded the pages of Pyramid, with Pyramid #3/92: Zombies, the latest issue of the long-running magazine for gamers.

Our feature article this month from Sean Punch (author of GURPS Zombies) provides insight and techniques to allow players to come back as zombie characters with free will, whether drawing on magic or science. This issue also offers an overview of Norse undead, complete with GURPS stats, from GURPS Vikings author Graeme Davis; a zombie-themed danger to wearers of an omnipresent TL9 battlesuit, from the pen of GURPS Ultra-Tech co-author David L. Pulver; and an adventure spotlighting a mad scientist's plans, perfect for GURPS Monster Hunters.

But that's not all! This issue keeps pouring forth zombie-themed badness like endless hordes of restless dead. Learn about a church that longs to look after your soul when you die (or perhaps before), with three GURPS templates; two new systemless zombies that push the edges of terror; thoughts on how to keep zombies terrifying even when you know they're there; and still more – including another Matt Riggsby-scribed vignette set in the new Car Wars universe!

Whether you're in the far-flung future, a magic-filled past, or a modern-day romp, zombies can spice up any campaign. Pick up Pyramid #3/92: Zombies individually, or subscribe today for many this issue and more months of surprises!

July 17, 2016: SJ Games Catches Pokémon GO Mania

I've been playing Pokémon since Christmas day, 1998. Thousands of my child and adult hours have been poured into the games, from Pokémon Blue all the way to the Pokémon X and Y.*I played the Trading Card Game, and I own countless amounts of Pokémon*toys and swag. I even get into the math of stats and competitive battling (don't get me started about EVs and IVs). You could say I'm a big fan of the Pocket Monsters.

But not since the game originally hit North American shores have I seen such a surge in Poké-fans as I have with the release of Pokémon GO. We are at a very unique confluence of technology; smart phones are standard, GPS technology has evolved immensely, and social media has changed the way humans communicate. Niantic took advantage of all of this with a game that takes the simple concept of catching monsters by swiping, and amplifies it with aspects like Pokéstops and Gym battles. The game's ability to bring hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of people together to catch digital monsters is amazing. I've personally met many new acquaintences simply wandering around my neighborhood, not to mention public spaces and the plethora of meetups. Local businesses are even getting a boost from the game, literally luring people into their store with in-game events.

The SJ Games office could not escape the pull, either! Employees are taking part during their lunch breaks and after work, catching and battling. Most of the marketing department has gone Team Mystic, but there are also a few members of Team Valor and Team Instinct in the building (but we're working on moving them to their own special work space).*

So while on your adventures, share pictures or screenshots with the hashtag #SJGym on our Various Social Media accounts! I love sharing pictures of trainers trying to be the very best!*

Train on, and maybe I'll see you on Victory Road .*.*.

It has been years since we gave the Munchkin FAQ more than a spit-and-polish update. When I went to look at it earlier this year, I winced; some answers were out of date and there were dozens of questions that really needed to be added.

I'm pleased to announce that after several weeks of work, the new Munchkin FAQ is live. Go give it a look-see, and then come to the forums if you have comments or questions. We'd love to hear your thoughts!

(Yes, I have set myself a reminder to look at the FAQ more often. A frequent reminder.)

July 7, 2016: Thank GURPS It's Thursday?

Thursdays have always been great for GURPS fans because that's when new digital items are uploaded. But lately Thursdays have been even better. Every Thursday since January, GURPS Martial Arts: Technical Grappling author (and big-time GURPS fan) Douglas Cole has been consolidating various blog posts that pertain to GURPS. Each week offers dozens of new posts from throughout cyberspace on myriad topics, including material by other popular GURPS authors! New rules, campaign ideas, untangling of thorny issues, reviews of new items, and general GURPS musings are all fair game.

To find out the latest from GURPS fandom, check out this thread on the forums (jump to the last page for the most recent updates). And if you want to join in the fun, there's information in that thread, too. Thursdays have never been so awesome!
