LOL. That would be classic, if life were a sitcom. (And I'm not saying it's not.)

It'd be nice if #SJGamesLIVE could go into the production process for Ogre 6e, the new Car Wars, and Dungeon Fantasy. Choosing the box size (shelf space considerations), box artwork, picking a company to do the printing, what to include in the product vs. what to leave for future add-ons, that sort of thing.

Or, a lecture from Phil on the history of toys. :)

I would like some talk on how the physical products for GURPS tests have gone and overall impressions on where we may be headed.

Conclusions on that are probably some time away.

I wouldn't mind seeing an update on how Car Wars is doing. It's been awhile since we've gotten a peek at it.

There may actually be some progress to report before too long; that would be nice!

The game moves fast enough that we might actually be able to do a short play session live. That would require a decision: explain every move as it's made (informative but slow) or just play and shoot and keep the chatter going.

Why not do both? Either two halves of the same video or in separate videos.

Play the fly-on-the-wall watches a quick game with the pros. Then transition into the director's cut replay with explanation and commentary.

I'm a bit torn on that.

I think though that the informative version is probably going to be more popular as an option - otherwise we're watching stuff going on without a lot of context, making it really hard to understand what is being done. It would probably also get a lot of feedback on the forums.

I've also found personally on many occasions that when I have to explain how something works that problems with what I'm doing crystalizes or becomes more obvious. So it might be worthwhile just to help solidify the rules explanation.

I, and many other,s would like to know if SJ Games is considering supporting any of the VTT (Virtual Table Tops) systems like Roll20 or Fantasy Grounds in an official way.
Minimally in an 'official' GURPS character sheet, created and maintained by SJ Games with import capability for GCA and GCS.
Expanded beyond the to include Racial Templates, adventures, and possible full rules support.
Their official support could also get these companies to do a better job of using the Hex Map, 3d6 dice rolling capabilities, includes Yards in their map scale measurements (Roll20), etc.
Inquiring minds want to know.
