I've reviewed Basic Set Characters and Campaigns on Amazon.co.uk. Reviews from there don't seem to propagate to Amazon.com automatically, but I could copy them over.

Thanks for the review! An hour writing one does a lot more to keep GURPS writers employed and help people find a new way to have fun than a long argument about tech levels or how to model a spell from a computer game.

Question: would people read reviews of Pyramid issues? I'm starting to come close to exhausting the wells of review fodder, and was thinking of going in that direction.

They have read my issue-level and article-level reviews on GB with reasonable enthusiasm.

Yes, less interesting then a book but I have bought issues of Pyramid based on reviews or forum discussion before.

I would. There are a lot of little gems hidden in Pyramid. It'd be very useful for someone to point those out.

I can sure think of some things by some guy named Riggsby (and S.E. Mortimer, and a few other people) from Pyramid 2.0 which are still useful but people might not know about. It seems like we get quite a few threads where part of the answer is "go buy this issue of Pyramid if you want rules for this/inspiration for that."

I went though a couple of issues I got a while ago again, and was surprised by some articles I'd liked and forgotten about. I was thinking that reviews of, say, 20 issues at a time just pointing out generally useful articles could be very handy (more of an 'index' than a 'review', actually).

Sadly, my Pyramid collection isn't in any kind of shape to allow doing such a thing.

You mean like this index?

Actually.... no.

That's just a bare article listing. I was thinking of headlining the truly useful articles, and maybe grouping related ones together. More of an index, where things are sorted by subject.
