"Van Diemens Land was the site for one of the most macabre settlements ever established in the name of English Justice.  Jostled together were hangmen and bushrangers, town criers and Governors, settlers and assigned servants, orphans and midwives.  They lived in this isolated penal settlement by choice or by force, united by the need to establish a foothold in a new country"  #Mokuy

This installment of the reloading press presents the venerable but effective (and some would say winner and still champion) .45ACP pistol cartridge, with stats for GURPS and D&D.
The Reloading Press is an at-least-weekly feature here on Gaming Ballistic for 2016. Each week it looks at some interesting real-world cartridges and presents them with hopefully-useful information in GURPS Format. .45 ACP ...

Through Monday, February 22, our TWO all-new Werewolf: The Apocalypse offers give you everything you need to wage the Apocalypse War against the Wyrm.

#1. WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE

Our first offer is your ideal starting point if you're new to the game. It includes the complete Revised rulebook and the essential supplements. For just US$11.95 you get all three titles in this offer's Player's Collection (retail value $50) as DRM-free, non-watermarked .PDF ebooks -- and by the way, the .PDF scans of most of these books are pristine, the best quality we've ever seen for White Wolf's 1990s-2000s titles:

- Werewolf: The Apocalypse (Revised) (retail price $17): The complete 307-page rulebook in its acclaimed Revised Edition (2000) about Garou shapeshifting eco-warriors fighting the Apocalypse War in defense of Gaia. Includes the Free Introductory Kit.
- Werewolf Players Guide (Revised) (retail $15): The 219-page sourcebook of the Garou, their 13 Tribes, and the other werecreatures of the world.
- Players Guide to Garou (retail $18): Much more about the Garou Nation, their septs and cairns, spirit lore, and new character options.

And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $22.95 to start, you'll rise in Gnosis and also get this offer's entire Storyteller's Collection with four more titles (retail value $46):

- Storytellers Handbook (Revised) (retail $16): Expanded systems for and information on Garou life that make it easier to run a Chronicle.
- Storytellers Companion (retail $9): Tons of extra information to enhance your game.
- A World of Rage (retail $12): A rundown of the Apocalypse War on all seven continents.
- Umbra (Revised) (retail $9): The spirit world, from the Realms to the Dark Umbra, and the hierarchy of its resident spirits.

#2. WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE +2

Next, to fill out your collection, look into the companion Werewolf +2 offer, which presents the rest of the best from the voluminous Apocalypse support line. (There were way too many to fit in one bundle.) The Player's Collection for this offer is just $9.95 for four .PDF ebooks:

- Players Guide to the Changing Breeds (Revised) (retail price $18): The world's many other werecreatures, from the mysterious Bastet to the insane Ratkin and many more -- tiger and dragon, raven and fox.
- Possessed: A Player's Guide (retail $12): About mortals inhabited by the spirits of the Triat and Gaia -- fomori, Drones, gorgons, and Kami.
- Book of Auspices (retail $12): The five roles assigned to the Garou according to the blessings of the Moon.
- Hammer and Klaive (retail $12): The guide to fetishes, magical weapons and tools empowered by spirits to do the impossible.

The Storyteller's Collection for this +2 offer has a starting threshold price of $19.95 for four additional titles, including all three Triat supplements:

- Book of the Wyrm 2nd Edition (retail $11), Book of the Weaver (retail $9), and Book of the Wyld (retail $11): All the sourcebooks of the Triat, the threefold forces that shape the cosmos.
- Book of the City (retail $12): For creatures of the wild, werewolves venture into town a lot. This sourcebook tells how they handle it.
- Subsidiaries: A Guide to Pentex (retail $11): All the dirty doings of the evil megacorporation that serves the Wyrm.

Pack's on the move -- these two Werewolf: The Apocalypse offers run in parallel through Monday, February 22.

I loved those books. I wouldn't call the ones I had programming though they made computers seem more inaccessible and mysterious at the same ti e as exposing their parts.

To all you readers of great short hard-SF. Can any of you recall excellent short stories about solar sails or light sails pub'd across the last 20 years? We already have the classics that are older than that. It's for possible inclusion in an updated edition of Project Solar Sail. Thanks.
