Now that I'm (almost) 34 and have a family of my own I have started to wax nostalgic on my past and I had a lot of good times playing GURPS. More than I have had play any other RPG. So I went out and purchased the characters book as well as the campaign book. I kept my copy of Infinite Worlds from the early days along with my copy of Banestorm. I saw GURPS for Dummies one day at Half Price Books and got that as well. What really got me back into it was The Mook's website. He has a book teaching players how to GM GURPS that I highly recommend. Right now, I just don't feel confident in myself to GM it. I am reading books, articles, and trying to find all the actual play podcast/videos I can and then when I feel more confident I'm going to run a demo at my FLGS here in Milwaukee. I'd love to have a bi-monthly (that is twice a month) game in the Infinite Worlds setting.
If you're a GURPS fan I recommend you participate in #GURPSDay or if you're interested in GURPS I'd suggest you read through all the blogs that participate. One thing about the GURPS community is that everyone I have ran into is friendly. There isn't the anger or "tribalism" that other gaming communities seem to have. People all seem to be more interested in the game than promoting the One True Way of Play that I found in other gaming communities. Don't be afraid to join in. +Douglas Cole runs #GURPSDay and check out his blog!
