December 12, 2011: Bitten By A Lycanthrope? You Should Be Aware, Wolf!
Today marks the 70th anniversary of the release of The Wolf Man, the classic 1941 werewolf movie starring Lon Chaney, Jr. and featuring the cutting edge transformation special effects that still hold up pretty well. (Those old brassy soundtracks made any scene more suspenseful . . .)
We've always loved humans who transform into terrifying monsters [insert boss joke here], which is why we're pleased to now offer GURPS Classic: Shapeshifters on e23. This volume includes information on all manner of form-changing beings: moon-mad men, body-morphing aliens and symbionts, doppelgängers, transforming robot-beings, and more. It's chock-full of game stats, sure, but it also includes invaluable insight into how changing shape or form can affect your life. Are you looking for info on how shapeshifting affects childbearing? How someone might be cured of unwanted transformations? How do you find and deal with hostile shapeshifters? All of this and more is covered in this inspiring supplement.
We heartily recommend you get your gaming group together in honor of this auspicious date. Watch The Wolf Man, have some Shapeshifters fun, and marvel the special effects that come from your mind's eye . . . or from Alex Fernandez's awesome background flip-book animation -- even easier to enjoy with the PDF!
