Blog or Treat!

Tremble, mortals – the GURPS Blogosphere is doing a Halloween special!

Recently some of the regular GURPS bloggers, including me, have been getting together behind the scenes in order to co-ordinate our efforts.  (A bit.  No-one wants too much co-ordination, I think!  But a little extra co-ordination seems like it could be nice).

This has been largely at the instigation of GURPS author Christopher R. Rice (of Ravens N’ Pennies fame) – so a big thanks to Christopher for herding the cats.

We’re starting small, with a “Halloween Special,” tentatively entitled “Blog or Treat”.

Thus this week you’ll see many GURPS bloggers posting something Halloween-related.  Look out for future co-ordinated efforts in the months to come.

I thought perhaps I’d collect all the “Blog or Treat” posts here, just to give anyone dropping by an easy reference point.  No doubt some of the others bloggers involved will do so too – the more the merrier, I say!

So here they are, in no particular order:

That’s it so far, but I suspect there will be further terrors to come in the next few days.  So lock your doors, and keep your chainsaw handy…

LATER EDIT: Indeed there were more terrors to come!  I’ve updated the list above to reflect all the “Blog or Treat” posts to date.

EDIT: In all my excitement about other people’s Halloween contributions, I totally forgot to post my own!  Foolish.  So here it is:

    1. Hmmm.. that’s actually very interesting: *do* they celebrate Halloween on Discworld? My first thought would be “no,” owing to Pratchett’s Britishness, but not being a Discworld expert, I could easily be quite wrong. I’ll be very interested to see what you come up with.


      1. I’ve just published the answer on my blog Joe – it’s called Soul Cake Day (which has origins in a real British tradition at this time of year) and involves ‘Trickle-Treating’! I’ve used it as an excuse to introduce some evil beasties and a short scenario seed, let me know what you think!
