AFIK, It's got to be him, dueling cats at tango ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ (just kidding).

I like the yellow theme. It's a golden pyramid-esque color.

In short, it's a die showing three faces: the textual GURPS logo, the monocular pyramid, and the four-spotted face of a die (representing 4E). For the lulz.

(Graphic designers: Upon viewing, feel free to weep at my travesty of your craft.)
I suggest the dice should present 3 "ones" (a critical success), just as the 20 is its "equivalent" in D20 context.

Edit: On second tought, it could be the one-eyed-pyramid made with 3d6 sorted like this.

Indeed. I'm just having a bit of fun with the thread topic. I have no reason to think that the Powers at SJG have any interest in or thoughts about a new GURPS logo; if they did, I assume they'd head straight to a professional artist.

Unfortunately my suggestion/joke there was better in my head: I had mis-remembered the opening line of the song as having a beat/pause somewhere among the initial words that made the song sound like "MASK...masked crusaders [etc]". I then mentally replaced "MASK" with "GURPS".

If we ever get some form of reliable 3D computerized battle map software in the far future, perhaps GURPS 7E might even go hyperbolic, as octagons with square or diamond gapping would probably function like a map of squares and be pointless.

I've long said that when I meet a girl with fuzzy 3D6 hanging from her rearview mirror I will propose marriage. Hottest gamer tattoo I've seen in my travels was on the one who helped me write my perpetually insane GURPS Shadowrun conversion, who had a roughly foot-tall black dragon on her left hip.

This is fun! I made one too:

While it's probably painfully obvious I'm not an artist I hope it conveys the idea :)
