Re: how come "All Out Concentrate" / "Concentrate" limits cannot combine?

I thought the hypothetical we were discussing was "requires continuous all-out concentration to use, so cannot defend for the duration" rather than "requires one-all out to activate, followed by...

Re: how come "All Out Concentrate" / "Concentrate" limits cannot combine?

To be fair, this is less esoteric than many of the OP's previous questions. "Requires constant focus, leaving little attention for outside threats" is a reasonable condition for a lot of rituals and...

Re: Quantum 2 mongooses

Strictly speaking, the example doesn't work- any number in base 10 can be converted to one (and only one) number in base 16, and vice versa, so solving an equation in base 16 will give you the same...

Re: Weird Powers: The Hive Mother

In hopes of returning this thread to what promised to be a very interesting discussion of arbitrarily numerous allies before I brought this frequency of appearance thing up, I have set out the...

The Meaning of the Ally Appearance Roll

Over in the Weird Powers: Hive Mother thread (http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?t=153585) the question being asked has become quite derailed by a secondary discussion. I mentioned, as an...

Re: Weird Powers: The Hive Mother

I certainly hold no faith in the goodwill of captains of industry. I merely wanted an order of magnitude estimate of how frequently people are put out of commission by illness, and that was the...

Re: [IW] Ordinary Worlds with valuables!

It will be observed that mass entertainment predates the establishment of effective copyright. To take the opposite view, I've sometimes wondered whether, if Shakespeare could have profited in...

Re: Weird Powers: The Hive Mother

For what it's worth, a quick google search suggests that American companies tend to allot their workers 8 sick days per year, out of roughly 260 working days. This would seem to imply that they...

Good point. That brings the cost down quite a bit.

Re: Weird Powers: The Hive Mother

Does anyone actually play like this, though? I mean, does anyone actually roll to see if an ally is sick after determining that he is available this adventure? As a player, if I payed quadruple...

Re: Weird Powers: The Hive Mother

It should also be noted that, assuming your minions are not immortal, you cannot even potentially have an unlimited number of them. Find the lifespan of a minion in years, multiply that by the...

Re: cap on Perception discount?

Most Brains in a Jar in fiction tend to have, if not actual sight and hearing, at least technological or psychic abilities that amount to the same thing. The ones that don't are specimens rather than...

Re: GURPS is on DriveThruRPG!

This is excellent news. I think that, in the modern era, places like Drivethru serve the role Local Gaming Stores once served (and I suppose still serve, in places) of showing off the game to people...

Re: On the Edge and rolling every turn

It does seem to me that the dicta that rolling to resist a disadvantage is bad roleplaying makes it difficult to play a character who not only recognizes and struggles against him personality flaws,...

Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the week: Appearance

Regarding masks as a mitigator, one should note that, outside of certain limited contexts, "won't show his face" is likely to cause reaction penalties in and of itself.

Re: Historical mideval setting

On the other hand, the absence of central government may sometimes give the lords "over here" more freedom to oppress the commoners. Consider the rise of serfdom in Europe during and after the "fall"...

Re: Pixie Weapon Damage

Fair enough, but that doesn't help with thrust/crushing weapons. Moreover, the results become very odd when dealing with very small creatures who aren't very weak (which might be due to magic or...

Re: Pixie Weapon Damage

There doesn't have to be a lever involved. A katar thrust, which amounts to a punch with a blade on the end, will do far less damage when wielded by a pixie than a bladeless punch made by that same...

Re: Options for GURPS Banestorm - 11 years later

Certainly. But, in a world where magic is a demonstrable fact and and accepted part of life, one can perform a great many demonstrable "miracles" without being demonstrably divine. Again, Gurps...
