Re: Drinking During An RP Session

For me I've simply never felt that lightly pickling my brain was relaxing, or reduced social anxiety. I don't associate alcohol with "relaxing with friends", because it's not relaxing for me, and my...

Re: Counters with even width

So does your Boxy SM +2 figure with the red mark around it. What's the problem with a 5 hex footprint, vs a 4 hex or 10 hex or whatever?

The orientation you're using for the oval based one seems...

Re: Drinking During An RP Session

Coke Zero and Died Coke are still going strong in Canada too. Not much of the low sugar stuff around that I can find, though.

As a general rule, I don't drink - I very much like the taste of...

Re: Big Indian swords

You definitely want Fantasy Tech 2. The Giant Sword section has what you want, specifically the Wide Sword and the Double Wide Sword. There's also a box on making other weapons ridiculously big...

Re: Dungeon Fantasy races in a real world medieval town

The ninth-century Frankish theologian Ratramnus wrote a letter, the Epistola de Cynocephalis, on whether the Cynocephali should be considered human (he thought that they were). This meant of course...

Re: Dungeon Fantasy races in a real world medieval town

Regular old little people (of the human, not fantasy, kind) were valued as curiosities and entertainers, like anyone else who was exotic in appearance but basically even featured.

Re: Dungeon Fantasy races in a real world medieval town

Regular old slaver (nonsexual) is an option for every non-Christian. But that depends on how they act.

Medieval Europe believed there were men with dogs heads in Africa, so the idea that these...

Re: [Limitations] Costs Character Point

No, it's a flat x1/5 and you have to spend either 1 point, 2 points, to a range between 3 and 1/5th the advantages base price depending on how appropriate this invocation of the ability is.

Re: Extra heads and peripheral/360 vision.

Peripheral Vision is definitely combat centered. And I can say from in-play that it's worth every single one of those 15 points.

Defend from attacks from behind at -2 instead of verboten.

Re: This fighter requires the bonus DLC

So you've run face first into my drain bamage. I can see there's someones arms holding a pole, and after that I have no idea what's going on there.

Re: What will you not allow?

You've had very different experiences from me.



The entire "biography" is a work of fiction. There is no "official" biography of a nonexistant person (ask any long-running superhero about their...

Re: Extra heads and peripheral/360 vision.

Peripheral Vision isn't "look at two different things at once"! At all! Enhanced Tracking lets you look at two different things at once in your normal field of view, Peripheral Vision is "look at one...

Re: This fighter requires the bonus DLC

It's OK! Sithrak hates you!

I'm a little sad he's not using a holy symbol of Sithrak as his weapon but I'm not sure what kind of weapon that counts as. A big club I guess? Some kind of exotic...

Re: What will you not allow?

I cross-play so much that my regular groups have trouble when I play... cis-character? I guess?

Re: Dinosaur Hunting

They're 100 tons because of the extreme selection pressures.

If you can't get your jaws around it, you can't apply leverage and can't apply maximum bite forces. GURPS prevents biting to grapple...

Re: What will you not allow?

I've seen people use cross-playing as an excuse to be terrible. The problem in this case isn't cross-playing, it's being terrible.

Not surprisingly, I ban being terrible at my table. Doesn't...

Re: [DF] How do you pronounce Paut?

Like I said, "Scandahoovian" is a local slang term for "Sounds much more like community of origin (decades and decades later) than like surrounding communities", not "sounds like Fargo".

Re: Dinosaur Hunting

Re: [DF] How do you pronounce Paut?

Fargo-the-movies's accent is, as my friend puts it, "scandahoovian", ie still strongly influenced by the original settlers and "less" diluted by contact with neighboring communities. "Scandahoovian"...

Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the week: Bestial

trying to distract someone with food to get what you want, e.g. sex. "While your front end is eating that, I'll just do my business in the back here, ok? ok." You see this...

Re: Selling unidentified loot

I suggested that the PCs hire a hireling with some useful IDing skills to appraise things. A bard hireling or whatever.
