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...

Re: Pyramid summaries on Warehouse23

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

Sorry, I was unclear.

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).

I have seen bonus tome, special ritual spaces, I am sure I...

For those who haven't read Brust's Taltos series, a Morganti weapon is a weapon enchanted to devour souls if it manages to pierce the flesh. The named Great Weapons are sentient (to various degrees)...

I like to wiki-walk through RPG wikias. I found a Traveller one... with 3 pages.

D&D 4e: Fey races and Archfey? Summer & Winter Court?

As I continue "datamining" 4e, I came across the Fey Pact for warlocks. In wiki-walking through the Forgotten Realms wikia, I found that Lurue (unicorn goddess of good fey beasts) is an Archfey in...
