Steve Jackson Games Kickstarted Triplanetary, but I skipped that one because I didn’t have the money and I didn’t have the personal need to buy-in anyway. This is no knock on the game, which I understand is awesome; but I don’t have a history with it the way that I did Car Wars or (belatedly) Ogre. But if any of you do, hie ye hence to SJG and get the pre-order while you still can.
I was wondering.
I’m now wondering if my players will want to give it a whirl Saturday.
Fine, let me go get my credit card.
Geez, and I thought that I had published this one, too. I think I need to back to bed. — But, seriously, way cool.
…at least, it looks like just GURPS 4e here on DriveThruRPG. Specifically, it looks like the GURPS 4e titles I’d put on if I was getting ready to offer them as a Bundle of Holding; at first glance, the only items missing from DriveThruRPG are the ones that involve licensed properties. Which probably means no In Nomine any time soon, dammit. Still: keep watching the skies.
Shiny. Well, actually, no, they’re plastic. But: shiny anyway.
You can still get Ogre Miniatures Set 1 from SJG, by the way. The basic set has everything that you need to play.
Because Steve Jackson Games will not be putting Conspiracy Theory into distribution. It funded, and even hit stretch goals — but there apparently isn’t enough interest in it to justify a mass printing. So if you wanted it, you should probably hit Kickstarter within the next four hours. It closes at 6 PM EDT today, so there’s still a window.
Conspiracy Theory, for those who don’t remember, is a card game from Steve Jackson Games about, well, conspiracy theories:
This sort of thing is more or less firmly within SJG’s wheelhouse, and I have high hopes for it. Less than two weeks to go and still needs a couple more grand to fund, so if it sounds interesting, go ahead. I plan to break this out with my regular gaming group…
Very clever, the way that they set the Conspiracy Theory Kickstarter up:
Early-bird supporters can get either five, three, or one buck off, depending on how quickly they hit that support button. Not that it would have mattered, in my case; I was determined to not back this puppy until at least the Dungeon Fantasy stuff was in the mail. …It went into the mail today, according to the message that I’ve just gotten. And the Munchkin Shakespeare stuff has shown up, just in time for me to give it as a present; so, well played, Steve Jackson Games. Well played.
23% because fnord. However, I don’t think that that includes the print on demand stuff, but I can wholeheartedly recommend GURPS Vorkosigan Saga, even if you don’t play RPGs. It’s got a lot of information about Lois McMaster Bujold’s universe in it, all nicely organized and laid out. …You do read Bujold, I hope? I’d hate to think that any of my readers might be missing out on one of the best science fiction / fantasy writers I can think off offhand.
