ďAlso, Girl Genius GURPS is becoming a reality! Thatís Steve Jacksonís Generic Universal Role Playing System for those who might not know. Weíve looked over their manuscript and added a bunch of our own stuff, and now itís almost ready to send back to SJG. We are very excited about it.Ē

Updated the W23 rumors section, though update is not live yet. I'll do that later today after the latest from Kromm

Whew!

In 2017, I happened by the Foglio table at GenCon, and I don't know why, but we got talking briefly about GURPS, and they'd said that major progress had been made on this front while there. I kept my mouth shut because I'm not a vector for leaks and press releases, but I've been expecting SOMETHING like this for a while. A full RPG is a big project, and gets moved on and off burners as needed . . . but I'm glad the pot looks like it's starting to simmer.

Excellent. I was going to ask about it on the licenced properties thread but thought it was one of those topics that it was unwise to bring up...

Marginally related questions:

Is girl genius the character in DalillamaĎa avatar/DP? Was girl genius present in GURPS 3e material?

Yes, Dalillama's Avatar currently features Agatha Heterodyne, the central character of Girl Genius. No, Girl Genius never appeared in GURPS 3e.

GURPS IOU has Foglio artwork and one of the background characters looks like Agatha to me. But that's as close as it comes.

Right! That was the material I read!

PD. Thanks dataweaver.

First: Yes! A thousand times yes! This has been on wishlist for a long time, but the release of the novels have made the Girl Genius line even more attractive for GMs and players. I hope a roleplaying game will have much more on this amazing background stuff.

There's a clear reference to Girl Genius on the chapter 2 opening page (a fake yearbook): A character that looks like a modern Agatha Heterodyne and she's called "Agatha Hete[...], Mad Scien[...]" (rest is cut off). Make of that what you want, but I took it that the many interdimensional connections of I.O.U. also connect to Girl Genius Europa.

(And if you go for that sort of reference, it also looks like Terry Pratchett is enrolled in the Department of Metaphysics.)

Meh - I care less about this than Mars Attacks and I wish that had never happened. Hoping it makes some GURPS profit though. ;)
