Re: Binary propellant and Standard TL 8 guns?

I find myself wondering if this idea was modeled after bombardier beetles.

Re: Flight Skills

Coming from a background in Palladium games myself, the generalizations of GURPS can seem a bit odd. But I agree that specialization/familiarity is the way to handle these issues.

Look at the...

Re: Kusari-Sledgehammer?

Traditionally, the kusarigama was comprised of two weapons, the kama (sickle), and the kusari-fundo (weighted chain, aka manrikigusari). It was the weighted chain end that was whipped around to...

Re: Using Glamour To Disguise Age

All good suggestions.

I think what suits my idea the best is Alternate Form. Bought w/o the Cosmic enhancement, it can easily be a 3CP starting power for a low level psi. And with Cosmic, it's...

Using Glamour To Disguise Age

I'm building a psi power that produces a glamour which convinces the viewer that the user is a different age than they truly are.

My first thought was Unaging (Control Age) but that only allows...

Re: (Bullet Knockback) What's wrong with this picture?

"An 8-month study in Iraq performed in 2010 and published in 2011 reports on autopsies of 30 gunshot victims struck with high-velocity (greater than 2500 fps) rifle bullets.[25] In all 30 cases,...

Re: (Bullet Knockback) What's wrong with this picture?

This video does, however, show a great example of the damage caused by hydrostatic shock. All that energy crushing cells around the wound channel, and then the wound channel expanding and collapsing,...

Re: Visibility and Hit Locations.

Part of this would be mitigated by the fact that, barring some alien configuration, we all know where the eyes are in the head. Just because you have a shiny Cobra Commander face-plate on, doesn't...

Re: Weapon Familiarity with a new Weapon Bond.

A custom fit for a familiar model of weapon? If the only difference was the grip, I would say no, since the weapon would still function the same as the stock model. If the customization includes a...

Re: Weapon identification request

The fact that it was slicing through things like the blade of a knife seems off to me. Cinematic license for a baton style weapon. It's almost like they want it to be a small whip sword...

Re: Clumsy Zombies?

Ahh, right...not lacking *in* intelligence, rather a total lack *of* intelligence.

Re: Tweaking Psionic Powers

+1 point does cost x0.3 the normal amount, unless it only does 1 point, in which case the cost is x0.25.

Re: Clumsy Zombies?

Technically, raccoons are of "limited" intelligence, but have no problem with manual dexterity tasks. Just an example that popped into my head.

Re: Capabilities of Afflict: Flight

Affliction: Flight would give the target the ability to fly, but would not give you any control over their flight. Not sure how this is intended as a TK Push. Do you intend it to force a target to...

Re: How to fight mages as a TL 7 character?

That's called "chassis ground" and can be a little misleading. Voltage is relative; by having all of the circuits in a complex device "grounded" together, you ensure that those circuits all stay...

Re: [DF] How much do liches in dungeons know about the PCs?

Also, this is a wizard who has lived, at the least, one whole lifetime. Even a brand new lich is going to have ridiculous amounts of life experience to rely on.

Re: Inquiry In Regards to Robots

I might be remembering incorrectly, but doesn't Digital Mind give a character the ability to make a back-up copy of their persona and upload it to a different system?

Re: [Space] Help With an Exotic Race

I would create a base racial template with only the features that will be shared by all stages, then create lenses for each stage of the metamorphosis. When the player wants to move to the next...

Re: Stat rocky balboa

Right, so from a GURPS standpoint, that's because you're striking an object with DR (the skull) with your bare hands.

The gloves certainly protect the hands, allowing a stronger punch than would...

Re: Stat rocky balboa

That's a little misleading. The function of the over-sized, padded glove is to spread out the contact area, which does lessen the pounds per square inch of a blow. True, that means a fighter can hit...

Re: Wall running

I would think that this sort of maneuver would require a successful acrobatics roll since you aren't really "sticking and running" along the wall so much as using it to redirect momentum. One or two...

Re: Help Me Impress My Players!

Or a single entity that has broad scope of power and influence. The parasites being the faction is a good idea. I was thinking, ever seen "Ghost in the Shell"?

I usually run games this way as well, but I do name my one-off adventures.
