If the project does remarkably well, that $3 pledge will secure you a dozen different GURPS PDFs . . . so please don't miss this new project when it launches!

Can we unlock all twelve PDFs before the clock runs out?

Follow the GURPS 2020 PDF Challenge today!
Fascinating.

This is excellent value if we hit all stretch goals, £0.20 for a GURPS PDF 😊👍

It's an excellent value for just one of the PDFs. We don't know what all 12 are (or at least I don't), but if even one of the four in the cover image strikes your fancy, you might as well sign up.

(There's at least two for either of which I'd have paid $3, so I'm in.)

And judging by your backer counts . . . if it does scale it should be very healthy for the line. Especially if knock-on effects win out.

That's my hope. My last project had over 1,700 backers, and I'd really like to see this upcoming GURPS campaign climb well over 1,000 project supporters. Of course, that will all depend on how many GURPS players think it's a good value and help share the new campaign at the various blogs, forums, and Facebook groups across the internet.

We will have more info on the project in the Daily Illuminator this week.

Well I have already shared it twice and will again. I'd have bought a couple at full cost, but skipped a few others and suspect thats a common thing. So it should help the authors who will likely sell more books than otherwise. Even popular topics or authors likely to get a bump.
Hopefully it also helps the GURPS line and popular sales usually do, and increase visibility.

As am I! Bringing all the GURPS stuff people want to all the people who want it is tricky. I'd love to see visible support for ultra-short, ultra-focused items that can be written, edited, and turned into products people can buy in a matter of a few weeks.

Thank you!



If anybody wants a random reason to support this: I'll celebrate my 25th work anniversary as GURPS Line Editor on Sunday, July 5. The timing is a coincidence, but hey: If you ever enjoyed any of the things I've worked on, supporting this initiative would be a great "thumbs up"!

If all goes well, this will bring in players who want to try GURPS as well as existing GURPS players. A bargain can be hard to skip.

So are the 12 items all the things mentioned on the monthly lists, or will there be things coming out on their own unrelated to this as well?
