Oh hell yeah!

(GURPS 3rd is/was my fave and gateway to non "class and level," style of roleplaying)

The GURPS books usually contain a good amount of reference/background fluff you can use in other systems.

Not sure if this link still has a valid redemption code, but you can get the Zweihander All-In-One Card Set pdf for free right now for Free RPG Day.   :coolsmiley:

Despite my complaints about core d100 systems, I've been impressed with how thorough the Zweihander (Warhammer Fantasy derivative) core book is.  The tarot-sized spell/monster cards look cool; may pick up physical copies at some point if I don't go cheap and print out my own with this freebie.

I think some of you got the Zweihander pdf, itself, sometime last year when I posted the daily discount link.  I ended up buying the massive PoD hardback later on.

Drive Through RPG is having their Christmas in July sale.  The sale is too big to list all of the items.

I picked up Mutant Crawl Classics for less than $19.  It is the best post-apocalyptic game system I've ever seen.

^ That was a good review.  You should have put that in an article.

I disagree with your opinion about the opponents chapter.  DCC/MCC works on a great deal of mystery to the players compared to D&D.  GMs are strongly encouraged to make up their own monsters to keep the mystery of the game going for the players.  Having a thin set of monsters along with suggestions fits with what they are trying to do.
