Default Pyramid #3/44: Alternate GURPS II

So there's a new Pyramid out!

Has anyone got it yet? What do you think of it?

I'm still sitting on the fence for this one (thanks to depleted disposable income) so I need to be convinced to part with what I have left!

I've got it since I subscribed last month, but only read the first couple of articles so far. There are already a couple things I mayp adapt. I'll give more detail after I have more chance to read.

ETA:

Very nice. I think I'll be using the Abstract Wealth article, probably the Survivable Guns article, and the first half of the Last Gasp article (the Action Points part is good, but feels a little too detailed for my preferred style of play). I like the ideas in all of the articles, but they don't fit my current list of probable future campaigns.

The wealth system will be interesting, considering that this came up about a week ago. Languages, too.

I keep saying I don't need more rules... but this looks freaking awesome.

The first Alternate GURPS issue was pretty epic and I couldn't think of anything else that GURPS could need tweaking. How can they make another issue of it...?

Oh my.

This looks so good.

Really great stuff! So far one of the best Pyramid Volumes in this year, IMHO.
