Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – June 2024


Authorial Highlights

  • I have started writing some fiction. Not a whole lot. And not a book. Just some short stories…but it’s a good sign.
  • GURPS Meta-Tech” aka GURPS Whatchamacallit  was released on July 2nd, 2024! Here’s the main forum thread for it and this is an example thread for new devices and origins. Folks, if you’re reading this I gotta say – tell Steve Jackson Games on social media that you like this book (if you do) and want more of the same (if you do). It’s really important. You can contact them via any of the following:

    • TikTok: @stevejacksongames
    • X: @SJGames
  • The Fantasy Trip Quick Quest “The Gallery of Hands” remains in the hands of Steve Jackson.
  • Working on another article for Hexagram for The Fantasy Trip – stopped working on my portal article and started on a monster article. Putting the portal one on the backburner for now.
  • GURPS Monster Hunters Adventure: The Face of Fire” aka GURPS Visage-22 playtest is up on Monday the 8th and we will be revising like crazy after that. Really good playtest with lots of bits and bobs poked and prodded.
