Default What do you want for the 35-year anniversary?

Next year is GURPS 35-year anniversary. The game was first published in 1986, although I couldn't find a specific date. No doubt someone will enlighten me.

So what do you want for the 35-year anniversary?

Edit: Guys, Vehicles is off the board. It's not going to happen. Let's not discuss it.

For GURPS to grow even more popular than Munchkin! Wait, no that's a Monkey's Paw wish waiting to happen. D:

For GURPS to grow to be as large and popular as the currently most popular card-games!

For a research paper to become public that details the kinetic energy of various strikes of an average human body (punches and kicks) and the kinetic energy of swing an object (like a bat or stick) so we know the ratio for swing vs thrust so we can have a more accurate damage table.

For a research paper to become public that details the lifting compacity of the human body with various weights and heights using different lifting methods so we can have a more accurate encumbrance table.

For both of those research papers to link to each other so we know the relationship between them, for a more accurate ST table.

I was going to say this, but wasn't sure it was a good idea to start up that discussion again.

I was actually pondering whether to specifically say that that's not allowed.

My top three wishes would be:

- Official VTT support for GURPS, ideally Fantasy Grounds Unity I'd say

- A strong licensed worldbook (or boxed set incl. setting and rules) for 4e, preferrably classic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy or Cyberpunk genre...

- Basic Set revised edition 4.5


...I'm happy if one becomes true! ;)
