Re: GURPS 40K RP conversions

There is a huge difference between 40K The Game and 40K The Novels. It is in the latter that the high end feats, etc. are found. The former better matches the toned down approach in this thread,...

Re: Changing History

Amateur time travelers kill Hitler.
Professional time travelers kill Princip.
Expert time travelers kill Rousseau.

(Depending on the physics of time travel, of course.)

Re: Fantasy Games Unlimted: Space Opera

I see I was unclear. The "kitchen sink" aspect from the article I recall reading referred to the game mechanics and subsystems thereof. Until it was mentioned in this thread, I never noticed similar...

Re: Fantasy Games Unlimted: Space Opera

Eh, if I wanted to rules hack, I could probably make Mekton Zeta do the trick with relative ease.



IIRC, I read a designers notes-type article which said that the "kitchen sink" aspect was an...

Re: Fantasy Games Unlimted: Space Opera

I love the mash-up setting of Space Opera, but I fully agree that the rules are a hot mess. If only someone could get permission to do the setting in a different game system...

Re: Just a rant ...

Wha-? That's a shock... (I'm currently in St. Louis myself)

Re: GURPS Atomic Horror Loi race

Unlikely. There are Reptoids in Monster Hunters 5: Applied Xenology

In fact, it has 4e stats for Nordics, Reptoids, and Greys.

Re: Pyramid #3/107: Monster Hunters III

If you ever wanted to use MH to run a game with the hunters still in high school, this is your go-to resource.

Re: What's Next for GURPS?

I get the same vibe from MH myself. (And the Buffyverse connection is explicit as per the designer.)

Re: GT:ISW -- How much of the Terrans' victory over the Ziru Sirka is owed to the Var

All of it, of course. The idea that the Terrans did anything other than move in to the vacuum of a collapsing Ziru Sirka is merely Solomani propaganda intended to bolster their clearly unsupportable...

Re: Thank you for the "banned users"-thread.

This is the only message board that I frequent that has that kind of thread. I also appreciate the professionalism when reasons are given. No sensationalizing, just simple factual information.

Re: Traveller and modern electronics

Destroy the ansibles. The feasibility of doing so depends on whether or not there are any limitations (e.g. gravity well) on their placement. Absent that detail, it's an undefined and thus unsolvable...

Re: Literary source for anti-psionics prejudice?

I'm inclined to believe that these three elements, taken together, are original to Traveller; that is, without literary antecedent.

Re: Name for an 80s Action/Superhero TV Worldine

If you're going there, I'll raise you one: http://www.pjfarmer.com/woldnewton/Castaway.pdf

Not as time consuming as TVTropes, but within the same order of magnitude.

Re: Mail call

Oh, certainly. Jump torps replace X-boats thoroughly, from a pure technology standpoint. Only social inertia would keep anything resembling X-boats in operation. Well, that, or "X-boats provide cover...

Re: Mail call

Re: Why are sectors universal?

Possible. Here's a summary.

The Galaxiad (as I recall) is a later time period in the Traveller Universe. The eras of play published so far are historical to the Galaxiad era. If you view the...
