Buying it this afternoon. In a ROS game that's just starting up -- this couldn't have come at a better time. Oh, and I have tomorrow off, so awesome!

A full fiction chapter for an intro - I hope I and the other people like it :-). Good to see new approaches.

I've got a ROS game that's just starting up, myself. This saves me a whole lot of typing-out when I'm making a GM's notebook.

In casr anybody else is confused, I beleive the product in question is this one....

http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/willtolive/

..... _The Reign of Steel:Will to Live_ pdf which appears to hve been just released on E23.

Like _TransHuman Space:Changing Times_ this is a product updating a 3e setting to 4e mechanics.

......and, yes, that means all the bots are done for 4e. :)

"... the square root of (2.4 ◊ robotís BL), ..." (p. 19)

Isn't that just 0.7 ◊ Lifting ST?

I am liking the first chapter! The recommended reading includes the 3e RoS. I guess I was hoping for something stand-alone, but whatever, I have RoS. I suppose one doesn't want to buy the same material twice.

Marginally less: SQRT(48) is approximately 6.967. Allowing for rounding, it's close enough.

Yeah it looks pretty clear from the title and such this is an update and kind of a supplement to ROS rather then a remake so I am quite comfy with that.
Especially since the original is still available and also the text at the bottom of the new books description page points out the value of ROS to this one.
