I like print books. I spent a lot of time tracking down GURPS 3e and Vampire: The Masquerade books. I've had some GURPS 4e PDFs printed in book form. They're easier to browse through have some advantages around the gaming table (though text searchable PDFs have their advantages too).

Of course, there's something to be said about being able to load all of my eBooks on a MicroSD card that's small enough to snort up my nose (don't do that, but you could) and read on whatever small device you feel like porting around.

Hi everyone!

I own Infinite Worlds and I was wondering if It would be useful / worthy to buy Time Travel as It is a source for the former.

In other words, is there anything in Time Travel which was no included in Infinite Worlds?

Thanks!

Not much, if anything, was left out. However it was presented in a very different way, with the Infinite Worlds setting being presented as one of several equal time travel campaign frameworks. Pretty much all of that was moved into Chapter 8 of Infinite Worlds.

The text is pretty much word-for-word transferred between the two books. The artwork, of course, was completely replaced since the original was all B&W while Infinite Worlds is full color.

So how much you might find it useful might depend on how much you like thinking about the different permutations of the different campaign styles and Time Travel physics, and how much a different presentation might make you think differently on the topics; however if you're looking for completely new ideas you aren't going to find it.

Just want to say again I love the Print on demand program for GURPS. I came to SJ Games late in life and I have a lot of catching up to do.

Id like to request 3rd edition Space, Fantasy, Supers and Martial Arts.

Also I Know someone else has mentioned it but Id pick up Reprints of the 4 original Dungeon Fantasy books in a second. I know the first two are well covered in the DFRPG which I love but I would gladly by all four.

I'm super excited about Deadlands coming available again and have told my wife that they are at the top of my Christmas list.

If you guys could somehow make GURPS traveller available again that would be awsome.

I would echo this. I am fortunate enough that I have a very extensive collection of GURPS books. Now that I have been reunited with my books after 6 years I will be able to assess the gaps and profit from the PoD program
