Updated spec pages.
I left off Christopher Rice's entry here because I dont know whereto attribute it yet. I think its his prior announced TFT project but hope he will drop by to let us know.
Looks like GURPS Disasters Hurricane is still on track for this month or next.

I can say Marl Ankh-3 is a GURPS book. I probably should have noted that in my update.

Christopher Rice has an item upfor playtest in the next 30 days or so, expect a title soon.
Kromm announced the title of one of his new works (or did he)... GURPS Power-Ups 9: Wouldnt You Like to know.
Which is either a joke or a detective/investigation power-up?
Either sounds good to me.

Finally the style guide is getting an update and changes that affect GURPS authors. Whomever sees it first please announce it here if its not posted on the main forums.

I'll add that this playtest will be for SNO-51. I'm still editing/revising Marl Ankh-3.

And we have a release!
Looks like Kromm surprised us with Power-Ups 9: Alternate Attributes
Not even close to what I was thinking but off to the store right now!


I doubt we see Hurricanes next week (Thanksgiving) so seems like a Dec release for that Disasters tome.

Initial thoughts (I'll do a review after I have slept on it) for Alternate Attributes.
The first part of the book is not readily useful to most games but a great review, under the hood analysis, and history behind the pricing of things.

The second part of the book, starting somewhere in Chapter 2 works on ideas for advantages to attributes and separating attributes in ways that can change a game. This include Wealth as an attribute which reflects a Pyramid article and could be used with that, Charisma as an attribute and some ramifications I initially like, Magic as an attribute (similar to The Fifth Attribute article in Pyramid) with some other ideas.

Dividing up attributes has some useful ideas as well. I'll likely add Stun Points to my Supers campaign for example.
Finally the Fallout chapter also has uses for assigning new Talents.

Overall this is a good book if you like to tinker, but a heavy lift if thats not your thing.
If I write any more GURPS books I can see applying some of this material to certain ideas, perhaps in a better way than I had originally come up with.
Though they would probably be boxes for optional rules or new advantages.
