So does anybody know when Sean is going to write up the old 3rd edition solo adventure for 4th edition, slap it on a pdf file and give it out for free on e23?

Somewhere between next Tuesday and the day after the Singularity.

More seriously, I doubt its on the 'project plan' anytime soon. I doubt it would be that hard to convert yourself from 3e to 4e.

I could, but it would be a lot cooler if sjgames did it similar to caravan to ein arris.

Probably never. Kromm has said that he doesn't really write adventures, I think.

Are you sure it was third edition? I feel like it might have been originally second edition.

He's said that, but I think the task here is simply mechanical, converting stats to 4e from not-4e.

Yeah, it's in 3rd edition. At least pre-revised, I don't have revised so I can't say there.

Yeah, but that sounds like something that somebody not-Kromm would probably do were it do be done.

To confirm: This would indeed not be a task for me. I am the Line Editor, and a big part of my job is allocating tasks to suitable people. As I'm not suitable for adventure-writing, I'd never assign this to myself. FWIW, the adventure actually has been updated (not by me!) . . . it's just one of the many things that needs art, and it's a very low priority because we're probably going to give it away once it's ready.

I appreciate the belief in my ability to write, edit, review, lay out, illustrate, and generally create every last GURPS item personally, but reality is that the majority of that work is done by other people. For instance, I'm terrible with adventures, I've never laid out a book in my life (and have no clue how to do so), I can't draw a stick man (much less art), and I have never had any role in art contracting, print buying, or shipping. The most accurate description of my role would be "coordinator, editor of Big Things, and occasional writer." A less-charitable one would be "traffic cop."

It's in both 1st and 3rd (I don't have 2nd, but I'd wager it was there too).
