From the YMMV file: I was thrilled when they decoupled from Amazon Payments, because Amazon decided I was a fell miscreant and froze my account and WOULD NOT reactivate it. To this day, I do not know why. They're happy to take exactly that same card for purchases; it was just the Payments side that was recalcitrant.

This, Discworld and Mars Attacks in the same year? What a time to be alive!

That is one of the 2 things I dont like about PDFs, and the major one really.
Loaning your books out to a friend was a great help in starting a game.

Hmm! It'll definitely be interesting to see how this goes.

Naturally it will include a lot of content we've already seen before, hopefully it will also include completely new stuff as a bonus for the faithful, too. :-)
The box will have five books in it (!), so you may still have to do it sequentially. :-)

I've got mixed feelings. Where was this three or four years ago when D&D 4e was floundering? Why fantasy now? It seems to me that superheroes or zombies would be more popular and help it to stand out on the shelves.

Oh well, as a retailer who runs two or three GURPS games a week, I'm stoked to see SJG actually, finally moving forward on GURPS. I might just pledge retailer on this.

Wow!

Let's see...will their titles be Players Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, Dieties and Demigods, Monster Manual, and Fiend Folio? :)

Judging by the photo on ENworld, those books can't be very thick. Hopefully, the breakdown is something like a templates book, for character generation and advancement, a running-the-game book, a spells book, a monsters book, and, well, something else. So that the different chunks of the game can be passed round a table conveniently.

And the timing isn't that off. D&D 5e has been pretty successful at introducing new people to the hobby; additionally, OSR seems to be taking off with both new and established players, which meshes well with DF's classic hack n' slash vibe. This may be the perfect time for GURPS to jump on that bandwagon and ride it as long as they can.
