Was not around to subscribe to V2, seems only V1 and V3 are available on the store. Been looking at (and saving) the free PDF previews supplied to get an idea for the contents and which ones would be worth buying.

OP in this thread mentions that some of the Pyramid articles are free. If SJG is not yet organizing the non-free articles for re-distribution, would it be possible for fans to just organize all the free articles in an easily accessible way kind of like the free PDF previews?

So, it's been three years.

Is there any possibility that we could be allowed to purchase Volume 2 articles? There are a number of old articles I would like to have, either replacing old printouts or acquiring articles I missed the first time they were available.

Honestly, I think they're short-staffed for updating material for a W23 release.

It's been... months? a year?... since the last GURPS Classic item has been released, for instance. And that's just scanning/OCR and some QA/editing.

Converting a bunch of short articles from the old web files, and putting them into a format that's up to their normal quality? That'd draw off some of their key personnel, taking them away from releasing new content.

First off, "just scanning/OCR" shows a blithe naivete about the amount of work that professionally scanning and OCRing an entire book especially a book laid out in multiple columns with tables and images scattered about requires. It's not easy, and the SJ Games staff deserve respect for the schedule they did manage (sometimes one a month!).

Secondly, there are thirteen items remaining that are eligible for a Classic release. It's entirely probable that we're down to the items that are, for whatever reason, much more difficult to process.

Given both of those, I wouldn't take the rate of Classic releases as an indicator of anything except how often they're making Classic releases.

EDIT: made a few corrections/editions, re-uploaded. I'm not working on it anymore tonight, it's 1:45 am. Really.

I added as much author, game, url redirects, and date info as I could find. The list is now sortable by all columns, and there's a URL # column that takes into account the redirected urls, so you can return to the original order if you want to.

I started a content column, but didn't finish filling it in, and don't really know how to for some of the articles about games I don't know. Anyone else can do so if they like. The column isn't of summaries, just basic terse descriptions: ideas, rules, campaign setting, adventure, magic system, pregen character, character group, creature, race, setting, background fluff, templates, spells, spell college, ritual magic path, martial arts style, character traits, weapons, vehicles, equipment, advice, review, editorial, Q & A, and designer's notes are the main categories.
This link is dead. Does anyone know if this document is still available anywhere? I'm one of the lucky ones with the volume 2 download but finding stuff on it is a nightmare.

Has anyone compiled a list of articles which included the htm file names in the archive?
