Re: ST of Elevator doors

Luck/Serendipity might factor in. I was able to push open stuck elevator doors on like two separate occasions, in one case while the elevator was moving (I was a little drunk; the elevator stopped...

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

Depending on exact TL, audacity, and ruthlessness, your guy could pull out a motorcycle and a tactical nuclear warhead close enough to blow the wizard off the map. Set a (long) timer, ride away, and...

Re: GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Denizens: Swashbucklers

I like the idea, but for some reason I want a separately-bought piece of gear with a fixed price. Don't ask for reasoning, I don't have any. I took the prices of all the blades listed in DFD:S and...

Try this one on for size: TL0 techniques that allow breed stock to follow Lamarckian evolution.

Needed fast: Does Tiny Tim (the singer) have Disturbing Voice?

Building a character for a spur-of-the-moment Skype adventure. I can do a passable impersonation of Tiny Tim, so I'd like to spend the entire session in character as a guy with Tiny Tim's voice...

Re: You are allowed three random GURPS supplements. What's your campaign?

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but there's a generator for that! I think it's entirely 3e books but it's still neat:

Re: Lots of wet boating people.

By contrast, I had a buddy who grew up on the water and used to showboat by taking a running leap off the dock onto a canoe, then riding it like a surfboard until it ran out of momentum.

He still...

Re: Purify Water

Gonna need some parameters here. Do you mean technologically? I think there's some items for water purification in High Tech, and maybe some in Low Tech.

If you're using magic then there's a...

Re: Gay Nazi politics?

Be aware that these nazis might hate Hitler, on account of the Night of the Long Knives. There was a sizeable LGBT community in the SA before the SS murdered 'em. If you want genuine gay...

Re: Musket Formations

I've been talking with someone who studies 16th century mercenaries (30 Years' War germans, mainly), and she indicates that while they probably had more points in Carousing than anything else the...

Re: [DF] "Finding a Quest" in Dungeon Fantasy

I'd argue that this book basically already exists - in the form of "Hey, can we use DF to do non murder-hobo thing X" threads that have popped up in this forum since DF1's release.

Re: [MH] Help with Slenderman

I remember reading the thread where they came up with Slenderman. It was on the Something Awful forums around '08 or so. A definitive takedown would involve tracking down the guy who first posted...

Re: Help with spell book

This "paper" thing's just a passing fad. Wax tablets are and always will be where it's at.

Re: [DF] Cleric Corruption Idea

What's a Crusader? Do you mean a Holy Warrior or is that some kind of custom template?

Re: [DF] Healing salves and teas

Maybe you could call the first one Kromm suggested a salve and the second a tea, or vice versa.

edit: Kromm got autocorrected to Kreme thanks to my phone. Heh.

Re: Army colors for an setting help

I thought certain shades of blue worked well enough as camo (compared to plain khaki or green-gray or whatever)?

Re: [DF] Y'all Naked in the Woods

Ah crap. Should have mentioned this was planned as a campaign start. "You've all been robbed, go get your stuff back" would be a hard sell mid-campaign. If I was gonna do this mid-campaign I'd...

Re: [DF] Y'all Naked in the Woods

That sounds pretty good. What do you think about making it an opposed roll vs. the captors' search/observation skills? What consequences if they fail, though? Maybe they get roughed up a bit, like...

Re: DF: Racial lenses mandatory; standardized

Which I'll admit I just made up on the spot. The basic idea is replacing the DF3 templates (which have varying costs) with ones that are a standard 50 points, thereby allowing my players to choose...

Re: DF: Racial lenses mandatory; standardized

This is exactly what I was going for. Sorry that the reasoning was a little unclear.
