Thursday is GURPSDay, and a happy day it is. The DF Kickstarter fully funded and is now smashing stretch goals, and though we seem to have had a bit of a light week for posts, there's a lot of good stuff out there, especially in the GURPS forums. Go check it all out!

(I'm in Thailand right now with spotty connectivity. If y'all could reshare this to other circles and networks, I'd appreciate it)

I just learned that the name of the city I thought I was in (Korat) is actually Nakhon Ratchisma.

Similarly, Bangkok is not bangkok. Of course "One Night in Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit" doesn't have the same ring to it.

It means you always have to pay for an oversized package, even if you're shipping a Matchbox car.

Or your wallet (credit/bank cards). Or your phone. Or your tablet. Christ, what CAN you set safely on a magnetized table, other than metal cutlery or dead-tree media?

Slash. Hack. Chop. Ahhh.

The Book of Deeds is now down to 179,000 words but anticipating getting back to 200,000 when monster fluff text is added in. Chopped out a lot of the SRD monsters, and will probably chop more.

An hour left to landing in Bangkok. Slept some on this leg. Taxi to hotel, short rest to recover lost hit points, then 4 hr shuttle to Korat.

My sympathies. They're not a fun way to see the world. :) Still, I hope yours is as good as it can be.

That's twice now that one of my playtesters said "I wasn't interested in X before, but now that I read this, I'm interested now."

The first was about gnomes. The second, vampires.

And lo, the writer in me is well pleased.
