Re: [Space] Dealing With Planetary Eccentricity

That doesn't really work for a 7 planet long chain of crossing orbits, specifically when the last planet is a 700 Me Gas Giant.

Re: GURPS Eberron, Redux

Put a size limit on the lower levels? Which I think roughly corresponds to the levels.

Re: Are TL4 'Rocket-Pack's Possible?

Personally I figure that someone with access to bamboo and a lot of silk might be able to make a working glider, those materials are noticeably lighter the wood and cloth that they would normally...

Re: GURPS Eberron, Redux

For Warforged I'd say machine meta-trait with the following alterations:
Doesn't Eat or Drink, Doesn't Breathe, you do actually have FP, and there's a set of extra traits the character can buy,...

Re: Are TL4 'Rocket-Pack's Possible?

Are TL4 'Rocket-Pack's Possible?

I'm not talking about traditional rocket or jet-packs, but rather a powered glider. Leonardo da Vinci's glider is TL4, so it's believable that someone could design one that could actually work, the...

Re: GURPS Eberron, Redux

So Shifters of other species can't have arisen later? And where were these other species at the time?


What's your source on this? I don't have anything describing Sarlona.

Re: GURPS Eberron, Redux

By random chance I've had thoughts somewhat along these lines and my advice is to use the increases flexibility that GURPS allows to make Shifters and Kalashtar supplimental racial templates that you...

Re: [Space] How Big Can Gas Giant Moons Get?

I'm assuming that panspermia is in effect, or rather something like it. Life begin on one of the moons (The one that humanity evolved on) and was then spread to the others by meter impacts ejecting...

Re: [Basic] Advantage of the Week (#50): Extended Lifespan, Longevity, Unaging

This isn't any of these traits, this is being the subject of a rejuvenation treatment, something completely different and with no known point value.

Re: Planetary Mass Computers

These problems tend to be things like simulating nuclear fission and fusion, they require high complexity computers to solve.

Re: [Spaceships] Travel times using fusion rockets

Where are you getting 8.3 MPS from? Earth's escape velocity is only 6.96 and you only need 30% of that to break orbit if you're already in orbit, ~2 MPS.

Re: Request for aid that makes me sound dopey

I don't think this really holds up, because as far as I'm aware we're still using C/C++ to program a LOT of stuff, probably most importantly web browsers, but they keep needing more and more memory

Re: Steampunk Dungen Fantasy?

You might want to look at Privateer Press' Iron Kingdoms. I'd advise looking more at the older D&D 3.5e version of the game, as their new version draws too much on their wargame set in the same...

Re: Is there any chance of getting a PoD color option for 4e Gurps books

To an extent. The mistake others are making is that assuming that professional printers are as limited as regular people when it comes to buying printers, they'll be able to buy mono-chrome printers...
