If you want to participate, you need to do two things: First, be a Pyramid subscriber! Access to playtest files and the chance to make a contribution to a SJ Games product are two of the perks of a Pyramid subscription. The second thing you need to do is to send an email to Scott Haring, e23 Manager, requesting to join the playtest.
The playtest is scheduled to run through most of July, and will be run on a dedicated mailing list. The list moderator is Jeff Wilson. Jeff requests you check out his instructions on how to set up your email client to best handle a playtest list, at http://www.io.com/~jwilson/gurps/playtestmail.html.
See you there!
Look At The Slipcase!It wasn't ready yesterday, but now it's done. Here's a mockup of the slipcase for the GURPS Basic Set Deluxe Edition. Each side will have the "puzzle" image from one of the covers. The top will have the GURPS logo. The front, of course, is open. The back will have the title and credits laid out as if it were the spine of a book, for those of you who like to put your slipcases on the shelf spine-out.
