Re: Musical Instruments by TL?

Hopefully without derailing my own thread, another "I've been reading fantasy books, and came across an anachronism" question. (The thread was inspired by the Finder's Stone trilogy from Forgotten...

Musical Instruments by TL?

I have read that the Low Tech supplement contains the various musical instruments to somewhere in the 1700s. Does it list the instruments by TL? And what of musical instruments beyond TL 4?

Re: learning new sorcery spells

You pay full price only if you want to cast/maintain two (or more) spells.

Re: learning new sorcery spells

Don't forget to divide by 5 for new spells being alternate abilities.

And any spell that fits your theme and costs less than your sorcerous empowerment talent level can be cast as a cantrip for...

Re: Decoupling spells from styles

There's a Pyramid article about turning Magic spells into secret spells.

Maybe use it to remove some of the power to make them regular instead of secret?

LTC: By TL, %age of population that aren't farmers?

I know it depends a lot on how arable the farmland, but I was musing about what level of population it would take to form a decent college. You'd need the farmers and craftsmen, producing enough...

Basic info on cultures and civilizations?

I like multi ethnic game worlds, but would like to draw some inspiration from the real world. For example, using the Forgotten Realms, there's the nation and people of Turmish. I would like to draw...

Re: Equal race point totals

I may be misreading your post, but didn't I say (paraphrasing because I'm on my phone), "or have the template have some trait you can't buy elsewhere."

I also suggested having racial talents as...

"Exclude already owned" search option?

Just a suggestion for what I'd like to see. I have ALMOST all of GURPS 3e/4e. I'd like to be able to see what I'm missing, without scrolling past all of what I already own.

Not sure if this...

Re: Equal race point totals

Assuming equal character points (for the ENTIRE character; race, "class," background, etc.), all a racial template is are the advantages/skills you were going to pick anyways, plus disadvantages you...

Re: [DF] Elves

I go the "elf/eladrin" split from Forgotten Realms. There are Sun Elves, Moon Elves, Star Elves, and (pre-Drow) Dusk Elves as the "high elves/eladrin," differing only in social tendencies ...

Re: Ravens N' Pennies - GURPS Content Posts

It'd be nice if you could show a Native America that didn't immediately get steamrolled by Europeans (e.g., Maztica).

Re: Ravens N' Pennies - GURPS Content Posts

Eastern Adventures?

And I'd kind of like to see other regions (Maya/Inca/Aztec, India, African kingdoms of Northwest and Northeast) in DF.

Re: Morganti weapons in GURPS

I recall (just read) where Pathfinder took exception to a regular Morganti trying to eat Aliera, so it suckered in her soul to keep it safe.

Re: Morganti weapons in GURPS

Mostly just running a thought experiment ("how would ____ look in GURPS").

Re: Morganti weapons in GURPS

Sorry, I was unclear.

Causes dread when the weapon is DRAWN, I meant more like a fright check, where the aura of hunger combines with the knowledge that one nick would cause the consumption of...

Re: Ravens N' Pennies - GURPS Content Posts

I would prefer a guide on what is needed to support DF. Everyone has their own setting, but people may need to adapt their setting to incorporate DF tropes.

Re: Morganti weapons in GURPS

Note, I am talking about a weapon that, when drawn, evokes disproportionate dread. Not a direct conversion of Morganti weapons.

Re: Recommendations for Magic-themed advantages/abilities

Name escapes me, but the split mind (with a limit for spells only) could help.

Compartmentalized Mind, I think?

[RPM] D&D 4e-style Rituals for Everyman?

I've only got a basic understanding of D&D 4e, but I'm intrigued by the rituals being possible (through a fear and a skill, I believe).
