July 12, 2010: Double-Barrelled Blast From The Past
It's Monday, the dreaded start of the week. One bright spot is checking out e23's most recent uploads. (I'm not saying you should do this at the office, to abuse the extra-large pipe you have there, but if you do, it would make a certain amount of sense. Who wants to pull down PDFs with your home network, especially if you're still using *shudder* dial-up?)
This week, we've got two classics. First, from the minds of Michael Schiffer, Craig Neumeier and Kenneth Hite, we present GURPS Classic: Alternate Earths 2. A half-dozen worlds are detailed within, diverging from our own timeline in interesting ways.
And for the follow-up, nostalgia fans and historians get Space Gamer #29! What was new in July 1980? With reviews, a short story with stats for The Fantasy Trip and AD&D, and an overview of gaming magazines of the time, this PDF contains all the ads as they were originally presented. I know the majority of the products advertised are long out of print, but for me, the old ads are the number one reason I seek out the magazines of yesteryear. And now that digital versions are being released, it's saving me a bundle in eBay bids!
