Re: Help creating an Immortal

In the first movie, they could breathe underwater. There's a lot of disagreement between all the movies.

Re: [Ultra-Tech] Conservative hard SF... but not implausibly conservative

All of these speculations still assume very human psychologies. That may be plausible, likely, or even inevitable, but I'm not so sure.
Especially once you reach the technology capable of changing...

Re: [Ultra-Tech] Conservative hard SF... but not implausibly conservative

If we're going not technically impossible ultra tech, why not just convert the matter of a gas giant into more usable materials? Transmutation up to iron shoudn't be that much of a problem for such...

Re: Implications of a terraformed Venus/Triton

Comets will have nice amounts of ammonia, methane and water. All useful elements for Venus. If you an fix the carbon from the extant atmosphere, then fixing the carbon in methane shouldn't be an...

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

I did notice earlier in this thread that we're not all in agreement on what constitutes a Lucifer parallel.
I think, according to Gurps, it's a world that has little to no life and/or is doomed to...

Re: The use of DOLLARS not a fantasy/medieval money system. WHY???

Now that sparks an interesting idea; nations that put trace toxic materials into their coins to make melting them down dangerous to anyone but competent forewarned alchemists. And paying them cuts...

Re: Human racial template in a setting where humans are the outsider

Aliens may come off like someone with mild autism; trouble recognizing "obvious" facial expressions, vocal tones, body language, and social cues and expectations. While we would seem the same to...

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

A good Lucifer would just be one where Halley's comet hit the earth in 1910 A.D. when Earth passed through its tail or 837 A.D. at its closest verified approach in our timeline. It's big enough to...

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

All the agents and exposed citizens were outright murdered for becoming superhuman but with a scent based bigotry? That seems excessive even for dark Homeline.

Re: GURPS Harkwood - how have you run it?

I didn't eat lunch, so looks like you're fighting hordes of ants.

I'm on a diet, so looks like you're fighting just one adamantium golem.

Re: Pyramid #3/109: Thaumatology V

Perfect for me would be a nightmarish dystopia to you, and vice versa.

Re: The use of DOLLARS not a fantasy/medieval money system. WHY???

I was thinking more about "cutting a deal".

In my fantasy setting, one nation issues coins based on pit mines, so they're called pits. But as they're well known for debasing coins severely over...

Re: Making Faeries

The fun thing about creating mixed characters is the privilege to pick and choose sometimes contradictory features from both parent species and sometimes even unique "hybrid vigor" oddities.

Re: Human racial template in a setting where humans are the outsider

I remember that many tests don't prove them differentiating shades of colors as well as we do let alone as well as their sheer number of pigments would suggest.

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

While tails are enormous, I think that loads of people were a little scared when Earth went through Halley's in 1910.
(Quick checking... woot, I remembered correctly. That rarely happens.)

Re: [Ultra-Tech] Conservative hard SF... but not implausibly conservative

Existence is risky for biological organisms. Even the best precautions will occasionally fail. I doubt you'd get more than a few absurdly luck and/or paranoid individuals to survive more than a...

Re: Gurps Vampire vs Hunter balance concerns.

Couldn't you make a vampire that hates being a vampire? Trying to find a cure, and hating other vampires?
You can still be a vampire hunting vampires too.

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

That totally depends on how fast it enters our system. Below the escape velocity of the sun and it will stay. If it's faster like the recently discovered extrasolar rock, then nope. It's just...

Re: Question: Off-Hand Striking

Somewhat, but hand to hand combat is generally considered one strength, so lack of ambidexterity feels like a glaring weakness to me. Especially with how cheap the perk or 5 points for the full...

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

Imagine finding such a world but seeing as how 66 million years is a long time... virtually all the non-avian dinosaurs still died out for other reasons.

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

Again it depends on how bad it has to be to be a Lucifer.
Even a relatively localized disaster could destroy say the burgeoning populations of humanity in Mesopotamia, dropping everyone back into...

Re: Question: Off-Hand Striking

That does sound like a not obvious fact at least to those of us that have zero fighting skill. In gaming, we see our character with numerous strong features, but one "glaring" weakness. We want to...

Re: Question: Off-Hand Striking

That takes time that could've been spent learning other techniques. And not everyone can learn to become ambidextrous in any single skill.
You seem to be naturally ambidextrous. That's great, but...

Re: Lucy's Choice: Let's make Lucifer Parallels!

The moon is around 30 Earth diameters away. Thinking it's going to hit one "BB", but it actually hits the other one "close" by seems like a very unlikely mistake to make.
