December 5, 2004: Behold The Return!
Months ago, the GURPS Basic Set Deluxe Edition was offered up for preorder for a time, and some wise individuals seized the chance as it was offered to them, and in due time were they rewarded with two foil-stamped leather-bound books in a lovely slipcase. And lo! They were pleased, and did indeed content themselves with the books they had received.
But those who had not reached the sacred site in time to place their preorders were most wroth, and cried out to the heavens, asking why they might not also acquire such foil-stamped leather-bound books in a lovely slipcase as these? And for a time the heavens were silent, for these books had been made only for those who had placed preorders. And indeed full of grief were those who had not, for these books seemed ever lost to them.
But hark! Now from the heavens word has come that there are indeed more books, and those who were late need not be left forever without. But a warning was issued, saying, "The end-sheets in one of the books in this set is in a different color, due to printer gremlins. That's not a problem, is it?" Once more the GURPS Basic Set Deluxe Edition achieved an orderable status on the sacred site.
And all the people rejoiced. And it was shiny.
