April 3, 2010: Call For Playtesters: GURPS Tactical Shooting
GURPS Tactical Shooting is a 96-page book bringing your realistic gunfights to the max! It explains how to model double-taps, the Mozambique drill, tactical reloads, house searching, ambushes, mile-long sniper shots, and many other details of believable shooting. It provides style templates for important shooting styles and adds new perks and techniques similar to the way GURPS Martial Arts covers realistic hand-to-hand combat. The book is rounded out by dozens of new TL5-8 gadgets and guns.
Playtesters must be registered e23 customers who have spent more than $50 at e23 in the past 12 months. We expect you to know the GURPS Basic Set and GURPS High-Tech well! Familiarity with GURPS Martial Arts, GURPS Martial Arts: Fairbairn Close-Combat Systems, and GURPS Gun Fu is an advantage.
We're primarily looking for playtesters who have experience with real guns. Since this is a book about realistic shooting, preference is given to playtest applicants who actually know how to shoot -- current and former military servicemen, police officers, sports shooters, enthusiasts, etc. A number of slots will be reserved for people who expressively do not know how to shoot, to check the rules and descriptions for clarity.
The playtest is currently scheduled to run from April 9 to May 2.
Prospective playtesters should e-mail email@example.com with [TS] (for "Tactical Shooting") in the subject. Include your preferred e-mail address for the closed playtest mailing list, correct spelling of your name as it may appear in print, your e23 login name, and a few words on why we should pick you: qualifications, experience, current gaming group(s), etc. Information about preferred submission formatting is in the forum post for this playtest call.
