When it comes to games, “If you can’t do it with a sword, do it with a fireball.

If you can’t do it with deition fireball, it isn’t worth doing. In terms of flexibility, open-endedness and encouraging roleplaying, no system that I know of comes close.

The kind of material that makes me want to write and not just GM. Now two full books mechanics and campaigns settings of material with full-color illustrations! The Fourth Edition Schedule Here’s our schedule for the rest of We have books planned all the way throughand our best writers have been working on them for months.

This book is all you need to build a fantasy game of any type, whether your model is Tolkien, Jordan, or Leiber. Jump between timelines and explore weird alternate Earths! I’m hoping to convert some of you. I’m getting bored of Tolkien cliches! I’ll play as a dimension-jumping space marine ediition

Anyone else feel the same way? How out of date is all this? The errata sheet inside my 3rd edition basic rules is dated October 24, ! GURPS makes my wallet cry. I think I own more books than is healthy for someone who hasn’t played in three or four years. Nobody around here seems to be that interested in playing it except me. Maybe after I move to Lexington I can find a group that knows what a good game truely is.

Originally posted by Wrakkenruan: Some of those Space books are collector’s items. No funky dice required. Non-linear and non-combat games are harder to GM. I LOVE funky dice! I dunno about that. I’m not entirely sure what you mean by a non-linear game — is that like Memento: Hell, I’ve had fun frustrating GMs who wanted to shrink the party, by carefully proceeding through the session and not losing a single person in the party.

But I still prefer plain old talking through things with NPCs and such. I like to role play, not roll play. I also have the first edition of the GURPS rulebook somewhere, though i got the second or third edition when the first one more or less fell to pieces.

Especially building characters with wierd implants was quite interesting There were also rules for hacking, which required the GM to build the nodes of the network where the characters would travel, complete with various forms of anti-hacker measures like black ice, which could actually kill the player if he was caught and password systems.


That’s the way it should be, dang it. Combat is f’n dangerous, that’s sort of the point. I The only other kind of cool one I have is Supporting Cast. My main problem with GURPS here’s a shocker are the language rules, but no system has ever had good language rules, so the problems I have with the GURPS system are completely nullified by any comparison to any other system.

Sorry, just a bit about turning this into a photo thread, but I haven’t had these games out of the attic in years, and it’s fun to show them again. And XaiaX, I agree — combat with automatic weapons is pretty dangerous. The real world is pretty dangerous sometimes. And after SJGames handed them their ass in court, I don’t think they’re likely to make that mistake again.

The best part of that book is reading it now Personally I think the sourcebooks are great but I think there’s too much realism I’d rather leave it up to the in my world perfect GM to make some decisions The sourcebooks are great, though. If anyone around was interested I’d jump at the chance to GM a more freestyle game, using my books as source. Speaking of SJgames owning my soul: I recently bought Chez Geek and the two normal expansions.

Now that’s a great game. Not that I play, I just want the book. I even got a Pyramid account when the playtest version came out, and that was infinity ago. Originally posted by XaiaX: Yes, I completely understand, but this makes combat very unpredictable. Like I said, there are bad and good sides to this element of realism. But back on the topic of 4th Edition. Any ideas as to what this could mean? I haven’t found a comprehensive listing of the design decisions that went into the new edition, only that “they wouldn’t publish one until they could justify it.

Yes, that’s the one.

The reason was actually that they signed up for a bunch of hacker e-zines and newsletters, all of which can be found in the sources chapter. That rang a bell somewhere and they got raided by the feds. They confiscated almost everything, all their computers, notes and data, so they effectively halted all development. There’s a lot more background in one of those little magazines SJ used to publish, that also had some additional rules, campaign briefs, equiptment etc.

Ah, they days where Joe Blow and FBI apparently didn’t really know what the “internet” was about and hackers were dangerous criminals that caused damages of millions in downtime and security leaks. Not fdition today where “hackers” are 15 y. When we started playing we ofte forgot about the PD bonuses, and they can editioh add up to a lot.


Sometimes i’d actually have a hard time killing my characters.

The Future of GURPS

Especially once they went rogue on me, and the vampire player bit the Paladin player, who was then a huge vampire in shining armor sdition a grudge Also, characters should have more than 10HP if they are built with points. The recommended average for “above average fledgling Heroes”. No, not at all. I’ll let gueps know how it goes! We’re all familiar with the “dungeon-crawl” style which works equally well in most game systems, but what about the fiurth flexible, skill based enviroments that GURPS allows?

Rolls are merely a editio thing to resolve conflicts. It’s not the point, and IMO the best adventures end up involving very few skill rolls.

But to be honest, an endless dungeon crawl is probably the worst sort of RPGing — if you just want to play with dice, I would suggest craps, which you can make some money at besides. It might help to think in terms of character motivations.

For example, what’s the backstory on the PC? Does he have a business? Wander in search of adventure? Works for the government? Is out for revenge on someone? Is out to try to make his fortune and improve his social standing?

Plus, given the setting, how will he accomplish this? Is it a modern day campaign? I’m partial to ‘s pulp fiction, myself; there’s always undiscovered corners of the world to explore, gangsters to fight, Nazis to smash, alien invasions to repel, weird science to invent, and so forth. From what I’ve deduced mostly from postings from the developers and ddition at the sample sheets that have been posted on Pyramid edtion core mechanics remain the same.

Roll 3d6 versus a target number, hope to roll low, lots of modifiers to taste.

Most of the changes appear to have been made to character creation, which was always the biggest thing that made GURPS standout: Eidetic Memory fiurth also been fixed in that regard. Oh, and more bang skills also called wildcard skills. Most appropriate for cinematic games, there was already Science! Again, it simplifies being a badass from skills down to just one – plus it “establishes” the cinematic rules that such characters tend to operate under.

All in all, looks pretty good. I’m planning on converting the Transhuman Space campaign I’m starting to 4th edition after I return with shiny new books fdition GenCon. Ars Legatus Legionis et Subscriptor. Oct 26, Posts: Wed Jun 23, 1: Wrakkenruan Ars Praefectus Tribus: Dec 22, Editino Wed Jun 23, 5:
