Me as well. *Want* the book with a passion, but not enough to switch systems.

The basic plan for GURPS is this...

1. Get the PD20M version out.

2. Take the "unpublished vanilla" book and insert the GURPS stuff (most of which is already done) into the blank spots.

3. Send to Steve Jackson.

4. Schedule release date based on what he says. Should be this year.

This is an exciting time for me. SVC has freed up time and is committed to
getting PD20M Federation out this month. I am doing a major happy dance
and buckling down to work.

This month? It's still July, do you mean by the end of August?

This coming month. (Sigh) Or within a month.

If you see a brain floating around, it is mine. Please return it to NC.

Thanks,

Jean, the brainless ...

Brains are unpredictable, especially in the wild.

I've been told my brain is wild since ninth grade. We were given the option of writing a paper about Romeo and Juliet (the clean version) or writing a play. I wrote an SF play (highly reminiscent of "I Never Saw Another Butterfly", but then Shakespeare borrowed ideas freely, too Smile ) for reader's theater.

I don't know if the good grade was for my writing or because the teacher didn't "get it". The only comment on the paper was "Wildly inventive".

So, my poor wild brain sometimes gets tired of its restricted range and goes on walkabout. It always returns eventually (sometimes dragging in another Olivette Roche scenario or an Evil GM trick).

And now you know....

You know, of course, there are those who say Shakespeare was in actuality "Sheikh Zubair"....

Looking forward to the PD20M book. When can I pre-order?

Right now, release is set for 23 Aug, and if that holds, that will be the day it will be on the cart. The way our credit card bank works, we cannot do preorders more than a week ahead.
